A2 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 23-29, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY SAVE55%STOREWIDEEND OF SUMMERUP TOS A L E Bring Your Florida Lifestyle Home COMMENTARYThe broadside harvestThe broadside harvest is coming in this year as robustly as the citrus harvest should, stuffed with political promises and attacks.Broadsides, like oranges, are the culmination of an elaborate process: Trees make the paper that form the broadsides that hold the print that tout the claims that fill the trucks that transport all that political flatulence to the local branches of the United States Postal Service, that employs the hardworking men and women who deliver it to us. Just in time for the Florida primary elections, which culminate on Tuesday, Aug. 28, when Republicans and Democrats alike (or more accurately, unalike) complete casting ballots to decide who faces off in the general elections, come November. The broadsides will help them decide. When a candidate has no challenger from the other party, the primary itself determines the future. That happens in my neck of the woods from time to time because Democrats may no longer exist on the southwest coast although one was spotted trying to cross the highway at dusk by a wildlife biologist in the fall of 2016. The creature was described as limping, muttering, drooling and decidedly underfed, apparently having hallucinations. Floridas east coast is different, of course: Everybody has hallucinations, Republicans and Democrats alike. The motto of the U.S. Postal Service, meanwhile, remains unflinching in the face of this propaganda blizzard: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. Which is to deliver what amounts to mostly crap, every single day. That motto should be inscribed on every public building in Florida especially schools where many kids have never heard of snow or gloom of night, and houses of ill repute that depend on heat and gloom of night.Those include the Republican state house, various courthouses, all county government buildings, and police and sheriffs headquarters in each of 67 Florida counties.In her case, appointed rounds for my mail courier has meant weeks of daily deliveries stuffing Republican broadsides into my wooden mailbox. Im stunned in this digital age we still rely on the mail delivery and on paper, but we do. And a great deal of political paper this year seems to be heavily influenced by the gravity of Donald Trump. For example, this one: KEEP FLORIDAS VITAL SIGNS STRONG: Donald Trump Needs Dr. Julio Gonzalez. Beautifully produced on paper so stiff it could have been used to seal a roof leak, this broadside shows a smiling orthopedic surgeon from Venice standing next to a digital display of some pretty comforting vitals: Pulse 72, oxygen 98, respiration 22, blood pressure 126 over 72. Dr. Gonzalez, a Navy veteran, is challenging a lawyer and fellow Republican, state Sen. Greg Steube, an Army veteran, for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives from District 17. The district includes Charlotte, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Highlands and Okeechobee counties in their entirety, as well as parts of Lee, Polk and Sarasota counties. The broadsides from both men insist the NRA adores them and they will champion guns; they will work to build Trumps wall; they will keep out immigrants crossing the border without permission or using resources in Florida; they will defend families, fight terrorists, and (I quit reading at this point, but there was more), probably bring Jesus back for the Second Coming. Sen. Steube, who championed more than 10 legislative bills designed to reduce or do away with any gun regulations last year, even appears in photos with guns on his hip or wearing military gear and clutching an M-4 held at port arms. Hes usually scowling and staring at something. One wants to whistle the theme song from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Then it gets interesting. Another broadside just as shiny and stiff pictures a scowling President Obama beside a scowling Hillary Clinton. It asks this question: What kind of Republican supports the most Liberal, Anti-Trump DEMOCRATS? The type is urine-yellow against a black background and the answer is on the flyers backside, above a picture of a haggard, jowly looking Julio Gonzalez: THIS KIND. Come to find out in the smaller print (which I did read) that Dr. Gonzalez gave Liberal Debbie Wasserman Schultz a personal check for $500. It was, he admitted, an effort to find new friends in the Democratic Party.That bastard. Just un-American.This kind of tension ramps up even more with state Rep. Matt Caldwell, who has spent the last six months or so campaigning across Florida to become commissioner of agriculture, a powerful position in state government now held by Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam. Rep. Caldwell, long a supporter of Big Sugar and corporate agricultural interests who bills himself as a principled conservative, pushes all the right buttons on one broadside: A+ rated and endorsed by the NRA; Slashed taxes by over $10 billion; 100-percent rating by Florida Right To Life, among others.But he also wrote an an op-ed piece published in The News-Press in Fort Myers, in March 2016 that included these words: I cannot in good conscience support Donald Trump for President I also cannot and will not vote for him in the general election.Thats trouble, for Rep. Caldwell; either that, or his political enemies who printed and mailed that broadside, the Committee To Protect Florida, just gave him the win by also describing him as a Trump hater. Heres the strangest thing about the mountains of material I have from these Republicans. Almost none of them mention the single greatest threat Floridians have ever faced: Water, and the toxic, collapsing environment. roger

One would never go to a party here inadequately dressed, which is to say without carrying a resume, ready to hand out at a moments notice. Socializing is not personal; its hard work. Ambition is a good thing, and were swarming with those who have brought their principled beliefs to government to make a difference. At least thats what they say. Count me among those who say Balderdash! (Thats not what I actually say, but we have to remember the kiddies.) The point is that our nations capital is teeming with those who take ambition to a cutthroat extreme, with ideals that are just a subterfuge. In actual fact, they are here simply to put in their publicservice time, checking off that requirement on the way to a prosperous career. Many depart, but many also stick around to mine all the precious opportunities that the swamp has to offer. They accumulate a Rolodex (these days its a smartphone-a-dex) full of people they can call to peddle influence as hired guns of whatever corporate or financial bad-guy special interest is impressed by all of their credentials, meaning their contacts. Those whose CV includes time spent on Capitol Hill, to say nothing of former members of Congress, can look forward to a big paycheck in the private sector. Thats the payoff for all the hassles of politics. If you can hook up with a presidents administration, thats usually a lifetime ticket to ride on the gravy train. Those who wheedle a Cabinetor sub-Cabinetlevel position or a high-ranking White House job the more visible the better generally, when their public-service ordeal is over, get to pick and choose among lucrative offers from those who want to bring prestige and rain-making to their operation. But what about those who have associated with Donald Trump? What about those who joined on only to learn that this president unleashes such a deluge of noxious garbage that its impossible not to get drenched in it? That goes for the ones who are relatively upstanding and certainly includes the bad apples whom Trump picked. With all the scrutiny, they inevitably get caught, their misdeeds exposed by aggressive news media or investigators, most notably special counsel Bob Mueller. Paul Manafort stealthily made millions of dollars for decades by assisting some really rotten world leaders. But under the withering D.C. klieg lights, his lavish lifestyle paid for in part by allegedly unlawful financial dealings was exposed, and he now faces criminal charges punishable by a lifetime of prison. Looking past him and the other Trump patsies who might face the same fate, what about those who survive their time in the administration without indictment? They may be shocked to discover that the reward may be no reward because theyre too indelibly stained by their association and participation in this nations humiliating future. They may be ostracized as accessories after the fact. Make that alternative facts. Those who signed on to burnish their reputations in the job world may discover that they suffer everlasting disrepute. They may find, as a result, that their party is over even before it begins. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. The Turkish hostage crisisIts never a good idea to negotiate with a hostage-taker, but when its a NATO ally, there isnt much choice. The Trump administration has been trying to get back a Christian pastor detained in Turkey since October 2016, and when a possible deal at the sidelines of the NATO summit fell through, decided to drop the hammer. The administration sanctioned Turkeys justice and interior ministers remember, these are top officials of a fellow NATO country. The action hit the Turkish currency and stock market hard. Then President Donald Trump intervened in his inimitable style, with a tweet promising a doubling of aluminum and steel tariffs against the country and pointedly noting the drop in the value of the lira. As always, the presidents shoot-fromthe-lip style is open to question, but Turkey deserved every last character including the two exclamation points in that presidential tweet. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is not Justin Trudeau or Angela Merkel, a leader firmly within the liberal West who annoys Trump. Hes an Islamist authoritarian who is fundamentally changing the character of an erstwhile ally. Erdogans resort to hostage-taking as a tactic to gain leverage over allies its not just us is a barbarous throwback and a disgusting homage to rogue states like Iran and North Korea. He also has grabbed a Turkish-American NASA scientist and local employees of American consulates. The case against the pastor, the highest-profile case, is ludicrous. Andrew Brunson lived with his family in a seaside city, Izmir, for more than 20 years until the government, after Erdogan survived a coup, decided that he was guilty of aiding terrorist organizations and military espionage. The alleged supporting evidence is a collection of absurdities a video of a traditional Arab dish sent to Brunson by his daughter, a church member texting the pastor about missing a service, a photo of him with a man in a scarf bearing certain colors, and so on. What this clearly is about is holding Brunson to try to get Fethullah Gulen, a former Erdogan ally and cleric who lives on a farm in Pennsylv ania. With great fervency but little evidence, the Turkish government accuses Gulen of being behind the shadowy July 15, 2016, coup that became an occasion for Erdogan to seize emergency powers and purge the state and civil society of his political enemies. This isnt a trade the U.S. should be willing to make. Erdogan blames an economic war for his countrys dire economic straits. He should instead blame his own mismanagement. Turkey was already vulnerable to an end of the era of cheap capital, even before it pursued a course of confrontation with a country vastly richer and more powerful than it is. There were always going to be stresses in the U.S.-Turkish alliance; Turkey views the Kurds as a threat, and we consider them allies. But the chief cause of the radical deterioration in the relationship is Turkeys rank anti-Americanism, a paranoia stoked at every turn by Erdogan for his own cynical purposes. He is now reaping what he sowed, and if Erdogan wants relief, his first step should be releasing the hostages.

The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood flow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and creams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a treatment that will OPEN existing blood vessels and STIMULATE the growth of new blood vessels, making it possible to achieve a full and rigid erection. At Southwest Florida Medical Group, we treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction with our proprietary FDA cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy. This type of treatment may provide long-term results and allow men to stop injecting or orally consuming chemicals to receive an erection. The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that Acoustic Wave Therapy aimed outside the body is a revolutionary treatment of ED. The physicians and professional medical staff at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. Paid AdvertisementSAY GOODBYE TO ED As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood flow cannot enter into the penis, thus creating ED. Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels. As a result, our patients experience much stronger, firmer and more sustainable erections.How Acoustic Wave Therapy Works: Before: After: Henderson Franklin Starnes & Holt, P.A.henlaw.com239.344.1100Fort MyersBonita SpringsSanibelNaples ESTATE PLANNING Helping Communities, Businesses and Individuals Since 1924.At the intersection of planning and peace of mind.While death and nal arrangements can be difcult to discuss, having your wishes properly documented is crucial to protect the ones you leave behind.

A8 WEEK OF AUGUST 23-29, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY We are passionate about bringing spaces to life.Boutique Showroom & Installation Care For Collier Fund opened to support red tide relief SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Community Foundation of Collier County has opened the Care for Collier Fund with the assistance of local government and the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce to support emerging community causes. The funds initial cause will be to provide relief for red tide hardship for small businesses in Collier County that have lost income due to the severity of the ongoing red tide crisis in Southwest Florida. The red tide definitely has had an impact on our economy particularly our small businesses that make a living off the gulf. Helping them through this is the right thing to do now, said Michael Dalby, president and CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce. In the long term, we need to also come together regionally as one voice to advocate for change to the status quo. Solutions are out there. We need the leadership and funding to put them into action. The Care for Collier Fund is designed to support community members in times of hardship due to a natural disaster. Assistance will go to water-based businesses such as fishing and charter or water tour operations, water-monitoring equipment services and educational programs whose income has been adversely affected due to extreme red tide conditions. We recognize that our community has a serious environmental problem that requires assistance, and we want to be proactive in responding to that need, said Eileen Connolly-Keesler, president and CEO of the Community Foundation. Our board and community partners have been extremely supportive of this new initiative and we thank them for their quick action that enables us to provide relief for many who have been affected by the red tide crisis. The foundations board of trustees kicked off the Care for Collier Fund by allotting $50,000 from the foundations Changing Needs Fund to be made available for immediate relief. The foundation needs support in this effort, however, and believes the community and donors will respond much as they did after Hurricane Irma.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 23-29, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYhuman. But they arent. The most prominent and troubled family member is citrus, but the Rues include such relatives as roses, among many others. Citrus is gravely ill, but still productive. Beneath the truck tires, the track was covered with the chopped mulch of once-upon-a-time orange trees killed by mischance. Most were destroyed by Hurricane Irma almost 12 months ago. But some were the victims of an insect-borne bacterial disease more dangerous to citrus farmers over time than any 10 hurricanes. Mr. Simmons had cut the ruined trees out of the gr ove, dragged them clear, and run them through an industrial mulcher before spreading the result back on the ground. At least theres some use out of them, he said. Cheerful and fit-looking, Mr. Simmons, 60, grew up on a farm near Plant City, like five generations of his family before him. Hed stopped here on the first morning of August to greet two visitors: a Florida Weekly reporter and a man familiar to citrus farmers internationally farmers growing citrus from China, India, Spain, North Africa and Brazil to the five counties of Southwest Florida Dr. Mongi Zekri, a University of Florida citrus extension agent based in LaBelle. They had come to assess the current condition of Floridas citrus industry, a powerful economic force in the Sunshine State from the late 1940s to 2005. For 13 years since then, citrus has been beleaguered and in decline though still a significant producer, the victim of the seemingly unstoppable disease called greening. Now, farmers, agricultural scientists and promoters of the industry working together in a unique historic alliance all express a cautious optimism about the future. Its like AIDS, but in citrus, said Mr. Simmons, echoing the comparison of others to the HIV and AIDS epidemic of the 1980s in humans. Citrus industry growers and researchers have now spent hundreds of millions of dollars not only to control the Asian citrus psyllid that spreads the greening bacteria, but to create new rootstock more tolerant to it while also developing chemicals that can be more effective when sprayed on trees. Their goal, like that of AIDS researchers: To find workarounds, as Mr. Simmons puts it new ways of growing good citrus, of living productively even with the disease, just as AIDS victims can now do. But they also remain sobered by the past and by what they still dont know.In the groveBeneath Hendry Countys blue bowl of summer sky the flat track where Mr. Simmons stopped to greet his visitors is flanked by 9,000 trees his trees, rank-and-file producers of Valencia juice oranges, their long rows plumbed straight as strings in sets of two, each two rows separated by a drainage swale. To a reporter, the trees looked good, the verdant canopies together supporting countless thousands of small green orbs swelling toward late fall or winter. Then, as they turn orange and become the newest citrus crop, pickers from Mexico, the beneficiaries of the H-2A visa program for agricultural workers, will arrive in the United States to harvest them if the season goes as Mr. Simmons hopes. After picking the fruit from thorny trees at high speed between about November and March, theyll return south of the border, home. Well have to see how that program works this year, Mr. Simmons said, referring to the trouble immigrants have had recently on this side of the border. Certainly no domestic workers are going to do that job. To Dr. Zekri, however, field workers were only a secondary problem. To him, apparently, the trees looked troubled. But they also looked well managed by a capable, smart farmer who has adopted new growing regimens. A native of Tunisia, Dr. Zekri, 67, grew up on a grapeand fig-producing farm before immigrating to the U.S. to earn a Ph.D. in horticulture from the University of Florida in 1987. His latest book appeared from the University of Florida Press in 2016, The Critical Importance of Citrus Tree Nutrition. The title alone suggests how much science is required for successful farmers. Dr. Zekri ultimately became a resource for knowledge and help beloved by farmers in the Southwest Florida region, the state and even the world, many say. But they dont tend to call him Dr. Zekri. They call him Mongi.ORANGEFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR/ / FLORIDA WEEKLYGreening has caused this orange tree to blossom and later produce fruit out of sync with the normal rhythms of flowering, setting fruit, maturing, ripening and harvesting.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 23-29, 2018 NEWS A11SEE ORANGE, A12 Looks like you are doing a very good job, the tree doctor told Mr. Simmons, quietly, studying his trees and their fruit. So you get an A, a reporter added. I wish I could take that A to the bank, Mongi, the farmer replied. They both smiled. Behind them, a roadside sign announced the business Mr. Simmons kicked off three decades ago, about the time Dr. Zekri got his doctorate in Gainesville: Labelle Fruit Company. Mature trees rose 15 feet above the inhospitable sand that passes for farming soil here, with newer trees of one to three years, standing waistto headhigh, patched into the rows sporadically. They wont begin producing fruit until theyre about four years old. Some trees were flushing producing healthy new leaves of light green indicating nutrition is reaching them, along with the right amounts of sunlight and water. Black irrigation hoses threaded the rows at the base of tree trunks, a system designed to jet water and nutrition to each trees roots in a life-giving, life-saving cocktail delivered by a powerful well-pump embedded at the top of the grove. Nutrition (though not water) must be delivered not just to the root-system of the tree, but to the canopy, nowadays, Dr. Zekri explained. Thats part of the regular spraying of groves undertaken by farmers about every four to six weeks, instead of only four times year as they used to, Mr. Simmons said. As a result, the cost of growing (citrus) has gone from about $800 to about $2,000 an acre, Dr. Zekri noted. Mr. Simmons described more than 10 herbicides, pesticides and nutrient-rich fertilizers that must be added to trees each year. In the (early) 1 990s it was very easy, Dr. Zekri recalled. We didnt use a lot of chemicals at that time, we had fewer pests, we did not have exotic diseases like now citrus canker and greening are the most devastating diseases, but there are others. Some of the chemicals now used are so severe farmers call them chemotherapy. They kill the good bugs and the bad ones, Dr. Zekri acknowledged. Those who apply them wear suits to protect themselves, and strict regulations determine when they can be applied and how much time must pass before the produce goes to market, designated safe for consumers. The schedules nowadays are sometimes too strict, said Rene Curtis Pratt, a member of a family beekeeping business in LaBelle, Curtis Honey. Farmers in the region from Sanibel to Clewiston have long come to Curtis to lease beehives and bees brought into their groves to pollinate trees, which then become productive, setting abundant fruit but sometimes these days Curtis cant help. Now with all the chemicals and regulations and I understand why they have them the window for the bees to get in and pollinate is so narrow. Maybe only a couple of weeks when they arent spraying. So the bees dont have time to set up, she said. When they set up under ideal conditions, they find food and establish their hives for a few weeks before the citrus groves bloom, usually in March. Then bees cover the flowering trees and groves with a blizzard of energy and activity, making orange blossom and other honey while pollinating trees in an ancient cycle of plant-productive life. But now some farmers even have to worry about bees, and their availability.The numbers storyAnd thats just the start of a laundry list of challenges for people like Mr. Simmons. Floridas citrus farmers, now about 4,000 who cultivate more than 430,000 acres, according to Florida Citrus Mutual, a trade organization, are 13 years into the fight of their lives to survive greening a fight that includes challenges from other fronts as well: labor, a changing market for citrus and juice, and other disease threats. Between 2007 and 2016, the citrus industry lost almost $8 billion in revenue and more than 160,000 acres, along with about 7,500 jobs, government statics show. Now, the trade organizations that market the fruit farmers grow say the industry is still worth $8.6 billion in Floridas economy each year, employing 45,000 workers truck drivers who haul fruit, people who maintain the trucks, people who make or sell specialized farm equipment, pickers, grove tenders, operators of processing plants and the like. But the figures are fuzzy because theyre interpreted in different ways. The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis said two years ago agriculture as a whole in Florida including both beef and all crops amounted to about $6 billion of the states economy. And trade associations are no longer just marketers for citrus. Now, theyre also research promoters who fund solid science. If you dont have fruit, you wont have anything to market, said Andrew Meadows, a spokesman for Florida Citrus Mutual, with 3,000 farmer members. For that reason, he said, citrus farmers agreed to tax themselves on every box of fruit packed and sold, diverting part of the money from marketing to research $100 million so far. Thats almost as much as the effort of federal and state governments, which have contributed $125 million to date, mostly in the fight against greening. And this year, the Florida legislature designated $25 million annually for citrus greening research in an Emergency Citrus Disease Research and Development Trust Fund. In the private industry itself, weve launched a multi-million dollar research effort and have turned over every rock possible from a research standpoint, Mr. Meadows said. Growers are learning new ways and new production techniques, how to get nutrition to plants, what kind of nutrition, theyre thinking about water quality, replanting with greening-tolerant root stocks, doing high-density planting at 350 trees per acre to get investment and return sooner there are tools in the tool box. In the mind of Dr. Michael Rogers, an entomologist and director of the Citrus Research and Education Center at the University of Florida, all that is unique. I have never seen a disease bringing so many people together. In the past decade alone weve learned more about this disease than in the past century. Were all hands on deck.The back story In the minds of many farmers, the real fight for a future didnt begin in 2005. Instead, hard times first stepped out of the swamp when the fair-weather citrus industry experienced mid-state freezes in the 1980s. Those freezes drove some farmers south, including Mr. Simmons. Freezes were followed by a terrible canker blight that precipitated the loss of significant citrus lands through out the state, including almost 50,000 of the one-time 190,000 acres of citrus in Southwest Florida, said Ron Hamel, who retired Aug. 1 after 30 years as vice president of the Gulf Citrus Growers Association of farmers on the southwest coast. In those days every damn grove had to have an inspection program, and entry spray. All people who went in and out along with all vehicles had to be sprayed down, he said. And they had monitors from the Department of Agriculture following people around because they felt they had a good shot at eradicating canker. And we were taking a pretty good lick at it. But then the hurricanes came. Four hurricanes arrived in one year, the first time that had happened in the U.S. since 1886, in Texas, records show. Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne hit Florida one after the other in 2004 like runaway trains. Since canker is borne in rain on the wind, it spread everywhere. Again. Until then the states canker program had required that every time a tree with the disease was found, every other citrus tree within 1,900 feet about 250 acres in an orange grove had to be removed. But in the year of the hurricanes, when greening was first detected in Brazilian groves, the canker program fell apart. The next year, greening arrived in Florida. Remembering all that, Mr. Simmons sees his problems differently than he used to. I wish all we had now was canker, he said. You cant sell the fruit itself in the market because canker makes it look bad. But you can still use it for juice. And the trees dont die. Farmers managed to have some very ROGER WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYDr. Mongi Zekri, a University of Florida citrus extension agent, has worked with farmers in Collier, Lee, Hendry, Charlotte and Glades counties since the 1980s.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 23-29, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY A12 NEWS WEEK O FLORIDA WEEKLYgood years while they were fighting canker. In 1997-98, they produced the biggest crop ever recorded in the state, coming in at about 245 million 90-pound boxes, and giving Florida status as the second-largest citrus-producing region in the world, behind Brazil.The biggest fightThen the real trouble started, and it hasnt stopped. It landed near Clewiston first in 2005, in the sprawling groves of Southern Gardens Citrus, a subsidiary of U.S. Sugar now headed by company President Ricke Kress. Although he did not return a phone call from Florida Weekly asking for an update on greening in the 3,000 acres of Southern Gardens Citrus around Lake Okeechobee, two years ago he spoke about the greening fight in a YouTube video promoting science in particular science at Cornell University in New York as the way to defeat the disease. In 2005, we were one of two growers who first saw the disease, he said. Every researcher has indicated the ultimate solution will be biotechnology. (But) greening has the potential to wipe out the citrus industry if biotechnology doesnt hurry up its game. One of the greatest problems still, Mr. Kress pointed out, is a problem in the lab: Its a bacteria thats never been cultured in the world, and its in citrus throughout the world. Thats because researchers have so far failed to isolate the bacteria and study it under specific conditions. We havent been able to culture the bacterium using traditional methods because we havent been able to develop the right media or diet to put it in a petri dish, Dr. Rogers said. Sounds simple enough; apparently not. Meanwhile last year, in large part due to Hurricane Irma, Florida growers only produced 45 million boxes, although they hoped for upwards of 70 million boxes before the storm. Although this year could show some promise for a future in citrus, the loss of farmers and groves in the last decade, not to mention processing plants down to about six in the state from 26 two decades ago has been astounding.Greening itselfCitrus originated in parts of southeast Asia or even the Himalayan region a few thousand years ago, and like a lot of things horses, hogs and domestic cattle, wheat and oats, for example arrived in the New World with the Spanish, in the 1600s. The Asian citrus psyllid and greening were not part of those imports, however. Nobody knows how they got here, but a number of researchers suspect they arrived in somebodys undeclared tree or plant samples designed for grafting as tree scions in the 1990s perhaps an ambitious cultivator of new root stock, or perhaps a traveler with a hankering for an Asian fruit tree in the nursery or back yard. However it happened, now its a done deal. Greening by any name is here to stay, predicts Dr. Zekri. And it has other names. The disease is sometimes called HLB, the acronym for its Chinese name, Huanglongbing. Farmers also call it Yellow Dragon or Yellow Chute, both translations of the Chinese name. In China and Southeast Asia greening first appeared a century ago. Little or no research was done to combat it because it was so poorly understood, scientists say and until it hit the Americas starting less than two decades ago, spreading elsewhere as well, not much was known about it. Thats changed. When a tree becomes infected, leaves take on a faintly yellow striping. They become stunted just like the fruit that will later set haltingly and mature only as small, hard produce useless to farmers and consumers. Eventually branches wont bear leaves and the trees die. The Asian citrus psyllid that carries the bacteria appeared in Florida in 1998, seven years before anybody spotted the disease a tiny, mottled brown bug in the groves. Smaller than a pin-head so small it remains almost invisible to the naked eye, at about .05 inches in its adult phase the bug began spreading bacteria through citrus trees and related plant species in the Rue family, with devastating results to citrus. Greening causes the roots of citrus trees to swell and then shrink, preventing them from sending water, minerals and nutrients up though the tree in its xylem (pronounced zy-lem), the vascular system that works nutrition upward from the roots. At the same time, when the leaves in the canopy use the sun and nutrients to make food in photosynthesis, they are suddenly unable to transfer those sugars and starches downward through tissue called phloem (pronounced flo-em), shut down by the bacteria. In effect, both the tree and the leaves themselves become simultaneously starved, and constipated. And they look it. Growers have handled this by having to learn to grow citrus all over again, said Dr. Rogers. Theyve adjusted how they grow it. Theyre very educated and adopt tactics to keep the trees going. But in the lab, scientists still cant figure out what makes the bacteria tick.Back in the groveBack in the grove or at least the grove offices, meanwhile, its paperwork season, the time when farmers try to arrange dependable labor for the harvest that begins in October and November. With the reduced crop size the labor markets arent in short supply so much, said Mr. Meadows, of Florida Citrus Mutual. We have transitioned our industries, and now the vast majority of the fruit is picked under the H-2A visa program they pick the crop and then go home. And theyre eager to do it, apparently. We have growers who go down to Monterey, Mexico and conduct interviews a lot of people apply, Mr. Meadows said. And a lot of growers find and work with the harvesters who are good workers. Mr. Simmons is thinking about the same thing, and doing the paperwork these days, he says trying to hire the 30 or so farmworkers who will pick his crop. Theyre really good, hard-working people, he said. Unlike the soil hes standing on that supports his beautiful but troubled trees on 60 acres, with a couple hundred more acres of the LaBelle Fruit Company just down the road; its neither good or hard-working, apparently. The soil here mostly just holds up the trees, Mr. Simmons explained cheerfully, indulging in a moment of wishful thinking: Now, if we just had the soil they have in Indiana or Ohio or Kansas ... But thats not how it ever worked in Florida, especially not these days, as nobody knows better than Mr. Simmons or Dr. Zekri. We have to live with this, Dr. Zekri repeated but hopefully food and juice prices will stay on the high side so growers can make a profit. That would be nice for consumers, too. But a lot of people who didnt make a profit for a few years have given up the hard life; piles of dead trees and naked fields that once produced sizeable orange groves and will never be planted again are visible almost in the shadow of LaBelle. Mr. Simmons is not one of them. Im not a gentleman farmer, he said. Im all in, completely committed. This is my life. He will continue to grow about 150 trees per acre until he cant, he says. Thats twice what farmers once grew when 75 trees per acre was standard, and about half what they might plant now or in the future when they scrape old groves from the earth en masse, and try to start over. Which is not his plan. Unfortunately, the disease is still only partly understood by entomologists, agricultural scientists and the farmers themselves but theyre racing toward an understanding that will give them control, Dr. Rogers says. New research now identifies the genes responsible for the disease. Scientists the most muscular group in the world are probably University of Florida researchers are striving to turn off the gene markers and create new citrus trees that simply dont react to bacteria carried by the Asian citrus psyllid. I am very optimistic were going to solve this, he said. I just hope its soon enough. So does everybody else.

The toes descend in size, much as human toes do, and the largest has roots that look like hair. The foot portion of the tuber reaches up almost to knee-height. Marli told the Mirror, We have never seen anything like it. Paulo said he was a little bit scared when we harvested that potato. The couple dont plan to eat it.IronyTania Singer, 48, a renowned neuroscientist who is one of the worlds top researchers on human empathy, has been accused by co-workers of being ... a bully. Whenever anyone had a meeting with her, there was at least an even chance they would come out in tears, one colleague told Science magazine. Others said the daily working environment included threats and emotional abuse, The Washington Post reported on Aug. 12. For her part, Singer denied the most serious charges and said, The workload and pressure increasing led to stress and strain that in turn sometimes caused inadequate communication with my staff in problem situations. The Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany, where Singer has her lab, granted Singer a sabbatical in 2017 and said in a statement that when she returns, it is envisioned that Prof. Singer will head, at her own request, a considerably smaller working group for social neuroscience.BoldIn Columbus, Ohio, workers repairing a street on Aug. 8 hit an unmarked water main, causing homes along the road to lose water.

But Reuters reports that nearby residents and business owners are unhappy about the urinals, saying they are immodest and ugly and will incite exhibitionism. The Uritrottoir, a mashup of the French words for urinal and sidewalk, looks much like a plastic trash receptacle, and local mayor Ariel Weil says theyre necessary: If we dont do anything, then men are just going to pee in the streets.OopsColorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colo., is footing the bill for a possible $46,000 reprint job after a recent graduate found a typo on his diploma. Alec Williams, former editor of the schools newspaper, was examining his sheepskin when he found a line reading Coard of Trustees, instead of Board of Trustees under one of the signatures. There was this moment of laughing at it ... and the more I thought about it, the more frustrated I got, because Im sitting on $30,000 worth of debt and they cant take the time to use spellcheck, he said. CMU President Tim Foster told The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel that the school will send out corrected diplomas to 2018 grads but the typo goes back to 2012 diplomas. Those graduates can request a new diploma if they want to. This mistake is all ours, he said. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate


A16 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 23-29, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY reflection of that philosophy. There are unique pieces enhancing aerodynamics like the flush-fitting door handles and front end without a grille. Still, the overall appearance is like a Porsche Panamera that got shrunk in the wash. So while there are distinctive touches, the Model 3 also buddies-up to an established look of sleek and premium. Inside is an experience like no other production car its even distinctive from its Tesla Model S and X siblings. Aside from the steering wheel, the entire sedan is controlled with one large central touchscreen. Maps, climate control, regenerative braking, stereo and much more are all adjusted through one sizeable table-like interface. Features like the speedometer that are traditionally directly behind the steering wheel are also part of the touchscreen. This leaves a large airy feeling for both the passenger and the driver. It doesnt deliver the total luxury immersion that comes from buying a Mercedes at a similar price/size level, but thats not missed much in the Tesla because its such a simple clean-sheet design. The unique dash also creates some clever solutions. For example, the air conditioning doesnt use traditional vents. Instead, the full-width front air panel can be directionally adjusted through the touchscreen. It creates nearly infinite ways to channel air. This setting and many more are remembered and identified through a smart phone. So it all automatically adjusts when theres a driver change. Not everyone is going to like this minimal interior, and some might find such a feature-filled touchscreen downright distracting. But the car is built to be ahead of its time because it has to be. Tesla is fully committed to an autonomous future, so a Model 3 needs to look like its just a software update away from driving itself to the grocery store. In fact, there are already seven cameras, 12 sensors and radar built into every Model 3. It allows Teslas semiautonomous Autopilot to be standard on all cars. It also means the hardware is there for any owner to upgrades to a fully autonomous vehicle once it becomes legal. So its a car that is actually waiting for the future to catch up to it. While Autopilot is looking to eliminate the driver, the Model 3 is a drivers car. Unlike combustion engines, electric motors have their full power and torque instantly available. Plus, Tesla builds the batteries (one of the heaviest components) into the platform floor to keep the center of gravity low. This creates a quick and nimble vehicle. The sporty feeling is amplified by the new Performance line. Its an upgrade from the base Model 3 that includes a second electric motor for all-wheel drive and a serious rise in power. The Model 3 Performance began most of its initial deliveries earlier this month, and so it was fortunate that Tesla of Naples was one of the few in the country that had it available for us to test drive. Teslas official 0 to 60 mph time for this car is 3.5 seconds. That makes it as fast as the best cars from BMWs M and Cadillacs V series of performance heavyweights. While those feel raucous and wild, the Tesla is a different kind of fun. The Model 3 Performance doesnt have an engine growl or wheel spin. Instead, the electric motors give a whoosh of power as they instantly deliver a seat-pinning amount of torque. The all-wheel drive and low center of gravity create a package that feels as planted and controlled as a bullet train on fresh rails. When used as a real commuter car, the 310-mile range should be plenty to get through a weeks commute. Plus, a full charge can be achieved with one night on a home charger. For longer trips, Teslas proprietary rapid chargers have been established along enough interstate corridors that its possible to be electric coast-to-coast. Theres an even quicker Tesla out there. The Model S P100D is a specialty model that is a full second quicker from 0 to 60 mph. Starting at $135,000 (before the $7,500 tax incentive all Teslas can receive,) its more than double the Model 3 Performances $64K base price. That puts the smaller Tesla directly in competition with other fast luxury cars like the BMW M4. Thus, while the Model S in supercar-like trim will always be equated to home values, the Model 3 Performance feels like obtainable premium. The Tesla Model 3 Performance is quick, nimble, quiet, somewhat affordable and fulfills a future we were promised long ago. Just as some people dont enjoy a science-fiction movie, this can be an intimidating vehicle. But for the same reason that theres always a line for the latest iPhone, theres no shortage of eager technology early adopters out there, too.

A20 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 23-29, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY with Surgeon-Controlled, Patient-Specic Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted SurgeryPRECISE ACCURATE MINIMALLY INVASIVE PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENTRobert J. 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 A new kind of ER for older adults BY SEBASTIEN SAITTA, PHYSICIANS REGIONAL HEALTHCARE SYSTEMNo one likes the thought of having to visit an emergency room. The reality is, illness or injuries that may need emergency medical attention can and do happen with the likelihood increasing as we get older. A study conducted by George Washington University Medical Center in Washington, D.C., found that emergency room visits by the elderly have already increased more than 34 percent in a decade, creating a greater need for specialized care. In response, Physicians Regional Collier Boulevard has introduced a new kind of ER for older adults to help make them feel more at ease and comfortable. We recognize that the ER can be stressful for anyone, said Christy De Leon, director of the Emergency Room at Physicians Regional-Collier Blvd. This can be intensified for older adults so we decided to take the extra steps to better serve their needs. The Emergency Department at Physicians Regional-Collier Boulevard has made enhancements to its emergency rooms to help address the physical, social, cognitive, and situational differences of older adults. This was a year-long project for us identifying their specific needs and implementing the necessary changes, said Karen Hays, senior office coordinator for the Emergency Department at Physicians Regional-Collier Blvd. We have seen that even the smallest changes have made a significant difference. These changes include: Private patient rooms Special beds with thick, soft mattressesLarger, easy to read clocksSofter lightingSoothing room colorsLarge and easy to operate remote for nurse call and TVArm rest seating and recliners for family comfortPortable CD player offering 1940s hits geared for patients with dementia Families of dementia patients have really appreciated that we took the step of adding the 1940s music, said Ms. Hays. Theyve noticed the calming effect that it can have. Research also shows that prints can cause dizziness in patients with seizures, migraines and/or dementia which is why they also took the step of replacing all of the curtains in the ER with new ones that have soft, solid colors. While not immediately visible, another notable enhancement is the specially trained clinical staff to care for older adults. All of the Emergency Department staff and medical providers have completed at least ten hours of geriatric care education, providing them with the extra know-how in caring for and addressing age related issues. Controlling noise is a big factor in creating an optimal environment for older adults. The ER provides a 30-minutesor-less Service Pledge where a patients time will be noted when he or she enter emergency room, and a medical professional will work diligently to have them initially seen within 30 minutes or less of their noted arrival. This allows the patient to receive faster care and quickly gets the patient into a less noisy environment when in triage. Each patient room is also enclosed with sliding glass doors that help drown out hallway noise. We make a special effort to know what matters to them, and by going the extra mile with these enhancements, we hope to make their experience a more positive one, said Christy De Leon. The emergency room at Physicians Regional Collier Blvd. has 18 private rooms, offers 24-hour care by boardcertified physicians and is conveniently located in East Naples at 8300 Collier Blvd. Naples. It is a Certified Primary Stroke Center and Accredited Chest Pain Center by the American College of Cardiology. HEALTHY LIVINGMourning, a journey in progress, moves along with you BY DEENA BAXTERSpecial to Florida WeeklyWorld Suicide Prevention Day is Sept. 10 and it has particular meaning for me. Its been six years since we lost Kevin, our youngest adult son, to suicide death by bipolar mental illness. The grief after any death is acute especially sudden death without goodbye. It can cut like a knife and feel overwhelmingly intense, devouring everything in its path. It can be emotionally and physically draining, a whole mindbody-soul slam, but with time and resilience we can move on. The greatest gift we can give to those who are grieving is to treat them with dignity and listen and validate where they are, or have been, in their life: The act of listening to understand instead of listening to respond. By listening deeply Ive learned that some people lack the vocabulary to articulate their pain, their grief, their frustrations with life and what they need. The most compassionate thing we can do is to listen and not jump in, assuming someone wants something cleaned up, made smaller or swept away. Sometimes people just want to share the truth of their own experience. Grief author Megan Devine calls this, A deep act of love and respect. After listening, it can sometimes be appropriate to ask, What do you need or want? Can I do anything to help you? Recently, I experienced this on a very personal level. We sold our home and downsized by 50 percent, on short notice. In less than a month we had to find a new home, dispose of years of stuff, get through the inspection and closing and move. I dont believe in storage units; nor does my husband. In anticipation of eventually moving, I had been whittling our belongings for several months but my beloved husband ever the procrastinator hadnt moved beyond thinking about it. Yes, opposites do attract. There is an element of grieving and mourning in downsizing. There is the pain of parting with something we value and then living without it. I found it cathartic to dispose of furniture, clothing and household goods. More difficult were parting with 40-plus family photo albums and my porcelain doll collection. Thankfully, one son wanted the family albums and a local doll club eagerly accepted the dolls for a future fundraiser. What brought us to our knees was the harsh reality that no family member wanted Kevins few mementos achievement awards, childhood art projects, graduation albums, wedding photos, etc. These were the tangibles that remained, frozen in time, and there would be no new ones. The thought of preserving them as digital images and throwing them away seemed like a form of desecration a sacrilege. My husbands heart was aching and mine wasnt much better. This was a time to step back, take a deep breath, listen deeply, respect my husbands truth and tap into mine. As Kenny Rogers sings, Know when to hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away, know when to run.The message was clear: These are still too precious to part with, so dont! I packed up all the items in three boxes and moved them with us. I put Kevins mementoes on our nightstands, in my husbands study and in the family room, along with other family keepsakes. A poster-size photo of Kevin from his high school soccer days hangs in my husbands closet, and we made room for the remaining boxes and will rotate those items for display. We found a way to move our mourning in a way that works best for us and incorporated it respectfully into our new setting. Mourning moves in mysterious ways, literally and figuratively. Its our choice how we respond to its demands. We can honor those weve loved and lost by remembering that they lived. This is a gift that keeps on giving.

His owner was an athletic trainer, skilled in wrapping and taping athletes. That came in handy during his dogs adaptation to the new limb. He improved on the process, improved on the device in that dog, says Dr. Marcellin-Little, a veterinary surgical specialist and professor at the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Prosthetics are more than artificial limbs. They also include orthotics custom braces for knees, hips and ankles and wraps and other supportive devices. They can return mobility to pets who have suffered paralyzing injuries and improve gait for animals facing amputation or an orthopedic problem that inhibits movement, such as cranial cruciate injury. Pet prostheses have been available for more than 15 years, but they are still challenging to create and fit. The latest advances include greater availability of 3-D printing and improvements in software for scanning and modeling. But just because you have a 3-D printer at home doesnt mean you can simply print out a new limb for your pet who had a leg amputated after being hit by a car. Not every animal is a good candidate for a prosthetic device, and not every veterinarian is knowledgeable about the mechanical, logistical and biological considerations involved in fitting pets for one. If your pet needs help getting around or is facing amputation because of an injury or cancer, and you are interested in a prosthetic device for him, heres what you should know before moving ahead. Plan ahead. Ideally, an animal will need two articulating joints remaining for a prosthetic therapy to be successful. Theres nothing for the device to attach to if a pet has had a full amputation. Talk to your orthopedic surgeon to determine if it is an option, says Jim Nelson, co-founder of Tripawds, an online community for people with three-legged pets. Medical factors. Considerations include whether the pet has pain, the kind of pain, the health of the tissue, whether theres scar tissue, and whether skin is thin, loose or infected, to name just a few. Coordination is key. A partial amputation with the goal of fitting a prosthetic device is a complicated procedure and involves a number of people: owner, general practitioner, surgeon, device manufacturer and rehab practitioner. The process typically involves an initial consultation, patient assessment, measurements, design and manufacture, the surgery itself and physical rehab for six weeks or more. Surgery must be coordinated with the maker of the device. Devices may need to be sent back and forth by mail until the fit is perfect. It helps to have a knowledgeable person keeping track of all the steps. Go the distance. Because pet prosthetics are still in the early stages of development, little is taught about them in veterinary school. You may need to travel to find a veterinarian who is experienced in placing them. Understand the full commitment. Fitting a pet with a prosthetic device takes time, money and a good rehab team. Weve seen some dogs who are not getting the therapy they need, and theyre just kind of swinging a prosthetic around, says Tripawds co-founder Rene Agredano. Odds are, that device is going to end up sitting in a closet eventually, because the animal just doesnt adapt. When everything goes right, a prosthesis can make a visible difference in a pets mobility and quality of life. Their joints are better, their backs are better, their muscles are better, Agredano says. Pets of the Week>> Nesta is a 3-yearold female black and white terrier bully weighing about 49 pounds.

Who am I to question her methods? Im just a regular, normal person whose metabolism completely halted with the onset of menopause. As a result, if I even dare to glance at a Triscuit, I immediately gain 5 pounds. So, I find myself perking up and paying attention when someone my age drops a whopping 10 pounds in far less than the amount of time it takes for me to binge watch a few episodes of The Handmaids Tale on Hulu. At first, the Keto Diet sounded like something new and exotic until I commenced to Googling it and realized that it was basically the same old Atkins Diet I adopted in the early s to shed 40 post-pregnancy pounds by eating tons of meat, cheese and eggs thereby putting my body into ketosis (thats where the keto come in). Whether ketosis is healthy depends on whom you ask. When youre operating on a miniscule amount of carbohydrates, the body uses energy from ketone bodies in the blood instead of glucose, which can result in both rapid weight loss and really bad breath. So, you take the good with the bad in other words, you could pop a Tic Tac to alleviate the bad breath, but is that really how you want to use your tiny carb allowance? If youre doing Keto, or Atkins, or Paleo (yet another name for the same low-carb diet that is based on the idea that Paleolithic cave people were thin because they only ate animals as opposed to bagels), most low-carb dieters prefer to enjoy their carbohydrates calories over ice in the form of vodka and can you blame them? Life without bread is hard. Alas, in the long run, unless you swear off carbohydrates forever and keep in mind that lettuce, carrots, watermelon, and especially bananas are filled with carbs as soon as normal eating resumes, the weight will come back with a vengeance and then some. Yet, like my mother and grandmother before me, I continue trying fad diets. In the 0s, I remember my mom doing the Cantaloupe Diet (I am not making this up) she ate cantaloupe every day for six months. Shed salt it, sugar it, put cottage cheese on it, and cut up cubes of it to put it her vodka. She went from a size 6 to a size 2 in a few months. My grandmother was even more drastic. She was the slimmest lady Id ever seen and she somehow sustained herself on the Grapefruit Diet grapefruit, coffee, water and cigarettes. No wonder she was always in such a bad mood. I have bunches of friends who have found their ideal weight by going vegan and avoiding eating anything with eyes which is in direct opposition to my thin paleo friends who only eat things with eyes. Then theres my skinny friends who never eat gluten, or my slender friends who dont touch dairy. It can all be so daunting, but ultimately takes me back to my 20s, to a day when I was having lunch with a friend in her 50s. I was scarfing down my sandwich, my fries and my dessert while my friend slowly nibbled on a salad. She was healthy, athletic and attractive I asked her (as I chewed) why she was barely eating. She said, My dear, youll find out after menopause everything in moderation. I still havent figured out how not to scarf down a sandwich, but amongst all the fads out there, I think I know the answer to a healthy diet eat less calories and move more. Ill let you know how it works out once Im ready to try it. stephanieDAVIS

THE MOTLEY FOOLTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest Investment The Motley Fool Take Name That CompanyWant to Invest? Email us at, and well send you some tips to start investing. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Value and QualitySuccessful investing boils down to being able to answer two key questions whenever considering a stock for your portfolio: 1) Is this a healthy, high-quality company? 2) Is the companys stock priced attractively right now? If you focus on only one, you might end up buying overvalued shares of a terrific company, or seemingly bargain-priced shares of a troubled or doomed business. Investors have lost a lot of money doing either or both of those things. Many good companies are rather apparent, but a close examination is wise. You can discern quality by assessing a companys profitability, growth and health via measures such as sales and earnings growth rates, profit margins, return on equity (ROE), return on assets (ROA), inventory turnover and market share, among other things. Management quality and candor is also important. Once you find a great prospect, it can be tricky to figure out at what price its a good buy. Price-related measures help you determine whether a stock is overpriced, underpriced or priced just right. They address a companys valuation or stock price and include its market capitalization, enterprise value, price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio and price-to-sales ratio. Its easy to think that as long as the company is wonderful, the stock price doesnt matter much. You might assume that if an overvalued company keeps growing, itll eventually grow into and surpass its current price. That could take a long time, though, and instead, the stock might fall closer to its fair value. Even if the stock grows, it might not do so briskly, if its already overvalued. To reduce your risk and have a better chance of realizing solid gains, aim to buy into stock only at attractive prices. Thats what value investors do, and they call it seeking a margin of safety. When you evaluate possible investments, focus on quality and price. These two factors can also help you determine when to sell. Learn more about successful investing at how-to-invest. Reverse SplitsI should have known better, but I took investment advice from a rag that repeatedly failed me. More than half the companies I invested in had reverse splits of 1-to-10 or 1-to-20. After those splits, most of them went down the drain completely. J.H., onlineThe Fool Responds: Ouch. Too many investors dont sufficiently understand what stock splits and reverse splits are and mean. With a regular stock split, such as a 2-for-1 split, if you have 100 shares of a stock priced at $50 per share (total value: $5,000), post-split youll have 200 shares priced around $25 apiece (total value: $5,000). Splits lower share prices, but investors stakes remain the same. Theres little reason to rejoice or lament a regular stock split, but a reverse split is usually a red flag, signaling a company in trouble. With a 1-for-10 split, 100 shares valued at $5 per share would become 10 shares valued at $50. Reverse splits can be used to inflate a stocks price so that it looks less worrisome. Be careful with any investing newsletter make sure that its record is available and impressive.

A Mouse for Your HouseMany investors have been steering clear of Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS), fearing the effect of gobs of consumers cutting their cable cords on its ESPN and ABC TV businesses. But thats short-sighted.Disneys theme parks attract more than 150 million visitors annually, the Disney cruise line is adding three more ships between 2021 and 2023, and the company is breaking away from its Netflix partnership to nurture its own digital video efforts. Disney is already a movie powerhouse. It owns much of the Marvel universe through its acquisition of Marvel Entertainment. And having also bought Pixar and Lucasfilm, it has the Toy Story and Star Wars franchises, too. Some analysts have estimated that Disney earned 61 percent of the movie industrys total profits in 2016. With Disney acquiring Twenty-First Century Fox for $71 billion (the purchase was approved by shareholders last month), it will get a rich content library featuring properties from Avatar to The Simpsons. Disneys ability to turn intellectual property into cold, hard cash will serve it well as it builds its own video streaming service. Walt Disneys future looks as strong as ever, and its stock seems undervalued today, trading with a recent price-toearnings (P/E) ratio in the mid-teens and a 1.5 percent dividend yield. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Disney.) Market ExpectationsQI began investing a few years ago, and my first investments gains have averaged around 30 percent. I suspect this wont last. What average annual returns I can expect over a 10-year period maybe 15 percent? T.B., Baton Rouge, LouisianaATheres no way to know exactly how any stock or the overall market will do in any time period. Over decades, though, the stock market has averaged close to 8 or 10 percent annually more than that with dividends reinvested. Over your particular investing years, you might average 6 percent, or 12 percent, or something else. A market-topping average is hard to achieve over the long run. Yes, Apple stock has averaged annual gains of about 30 percent over the past 20 years, but IBM has averaged 5.7 percent and Johnson & Johnson has averaged 9 percent. Since trying to beat the market is so difficult, superinvestor Warren Buffett has recommended low-cost broad-market index funds for most people. They offer an easy way to roughly match the markets return. ***QWhere can I study and compare mutual funds? P.L., Grand Rapids, MichiganAThe internet is great for that. is a major mutual fund resource, offering details about thousands of funds performance, fees, taxes, holdings and much more. The folks at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), meanwhile, offer useful comparisons and data via their Fund Analyzer tool at There you can enter fund names or ticker symbols and compare fees and performances of various funds as well as assessing their performances after fees have been subtracted. That can be a great way to see how often inexpensive index funds outperform managed funds, even if the managed funds sport higher pre-fee returns. Want more information about stocks?

In 1873, I introduced my first paint, raw umber, in oil, and in 1877, my founder patented a resealable tin paint can. By the 1880s I was selling ready-mixed paint.

As a sales leader, you will often find your people looking to you for wisdom, direction and reassurance, says Lance Tyson, president and CEO of Tyson Group and the author of Selling is an Away Game: Close Business and Compete in a Complex World. As a franchise owner of Dale Carnegie operations in the Midwest, Mr. Tyson drove them to 230 percent growth before starting his own company. He conducts more than 100 workshops annually in areas such as performance management, leadership, sales, sales management, customer service, negotiations and team building. Sales managers need a coaching process that allows them the time to build up the people who make up their talent pool, Mr. Tyson says. You need to look beyond what they can do today and help them realize whats possible tomorrow. Mr. Tyson, whose clients include the sales departments of numerous professional sports and entertainment franchises, thinks improvement in sales teams starts with how effectively sales managers coach their teams while emphasizing a competitive mindset. He offers five ways sales leaders can impr ove their coaching and thus facilitate more team success much like a sports coach looks for ways to lead his or her team to more wins. Identify weaknesses Mr. Tyson says sales leaders must keep their eyes and ears open to find areas that need improvement. This information could come from a customer or vendor, a performance review or observations from a colleague. Regardless of the source, always assess different opportunities for coaching and improvement, he says. Establish desired results This requires a leader to describe to salespeople the gap between what they are currently doing and what they should be doing. Associate an identifiable action with all the steps in between, Mr. Tyson says. When you outline the process up front, your team member can envision well-defined results. Provide resources For the coaching process to be successful, you must clear away obstructions and make the appropriate resources available: time, money, equipment, training, upper management buy-in and support Most importantly, Mr. Tyson says, your salespeople must commit to the process and want to achieve the results. Practice, practice, practice. And observe implementation Better results require new behavior, which wont come overnight. Once you have the resources in place and youve explained and demonstrated the desired skill, its time for the team member to implement it, Mr. Tyson says. They must sharpen the behavior with the help of a coach. Practice allows the coach to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement while witnessing the skill in realtime. Use effective follow-up Many training sessions have gone for naught when there was no follow-up and new ways toward success were forgotten. Remember as a sales leader that your goal is to effect a behavioral change, Mr. Tyson says. Coaching is a process, and it never really ends. The next step is follow-up at regular intervals to review results. And when your salespeople reach goals, take time to acknowledge and celebrate it. As a sales leader, you just cant settle for telling your team what they should do. You need a process for coaching them to achievement. This gives you a framework to accommodate an individuals unique personality through small adjustments. SALESFrom page 24 TYSON

Currently, three construction cranes are onsite as work continues on the lower floors. As the footprint for Tower 200 begins to take shape, sales in the high-rise building have remained extremely strong. We originally launched our sales effort for our second tower in July 2017, sated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. Since then, we have sold 65 of the towers 120 residences. That represents a total sales volume of $138 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.

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

C18 Things to doCheck out our calendar of events for this week. C6-7 MMake a toast at Arts Alliance: 98 years ago women got the voteCelebrate the 98th anniversary of womens right at Toast to Tenacity. Honor the courageous women behind the passage of the 19th Amendment at this event from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Aug. 26 at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers. Tenacious women from diverse backgrounds persisted for more than 70 years even went to prison and endured other terrible hardships before the movement succeeded. When the 19th Amendment was finally ratified into law on Aug. 26, 1920, suffragists across the nation raised a glass of grape juice since Prohibition was in effect, they skipped the more potent stuff to celebrate its passage. Among the suffragists are many unsung heroes. Hear the whole story, about such heroines as black suffragists Ida B. Wells Barnett and Mary Church Terrell, who were members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. Although Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony are the names most associated with the movement, they were not alone in their commitment to gender equality. Join Vision 2020, the Fort Myers Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., and Progressive Women of Southwest Florida as they stand together to honor the suffragists of all colors and look to a future of equality with an inspiring program, a grape juice toast, and a wine and cheese reception. Toast to Tenacity special guest is Lee County Supervisor of Elections Tommy Doyle. Attendance is free, but reservations are requested.

Green Writers Press. 364 pages. Trade paperback, $21.95.There are so many strands and points of interest in this fine, highly original novel that its hard to know where to begin. In the background are the Cuban Missile Crisis, the blooming (technically and economically) of Floridas Space Coast and the Civil Rights struggle. In the foreground is the Florida citrus industry in the early 1960s as represented by a body of small grove owners along or near the Indian River. In these communities, the white folks own the groves and the black folks perform much of the labor. Race relations are in an uneasy truce, a tangle of old habits and shaky dependencies. A great freeze threatens to destroy the groves, even if insects dont. The central character, Isaac Golden, has abandoned his career as a physician and set out on a grand adventure with his wife Melody and their two young children, Sarah and Eli. Moving away from the Philadelphia area, where their Jewish identity was readily reinforced, they have settled in a small town with only one other Jewish family and a considerable ride to Jewish institutions. The Goldens are clearly outsiders, and the way they are addressed by many of the townspeople carries a brand of politeness that barely veils a cultural tradition of anti-Semitism. Author Andrew Furman portrays how Isaac and Melody deal with their displacement and discomfort with skill and sensitivity. The story of Isaacs attempt to develop improved breeds of oranges becomes a continuing lesson in citrus science. Mr. Furman provides a large specialized vocabulary that is the basis for reader understanding of Isaacs mission and of the industry he has entered. This material and the extensive exposition should fall flat, but the author makes it sing. He does this by capturing Isaacs poetic passion, especially his interest in avoiding chemical pesticides and protecting his groves using natural, nontoxic agents.But he is spending more money than he is likely to make. Melody develops a roadside business selling from her vegetable garden, from the groves and from the kitchen (her wonderful pies add muchneeded income to the familys enterprise). Eli is an undersized, sickly child with serious respiratory challenges. How each parent treats him, and how they treat toddler Sarah, defines them credibly and even admirably. For example, Isaac, though it brings him pain, forces himself to avoid coddling Eli or setting low expectations for the boy. Melody, and ultimately her marriage, is challenged by her loneliness and by the wiles of an African-American labor organizer who is the returned prodigal son of Isaacs grove manager. The townspeople provide a chorus of reprehensible, yet understandable attitudes toward the curious Jewish family that doesnt quite know how to fit in. Melody has movie star looks; Isaac has stature, strength and not a trace of a conventional Jewish face. They are some sort of new breed. Yet they plan to raise their children in traditional Jewish ways. Elis bar mitzvah is out there on the horizon. Isaac and Melody are well stocked with Yiddish phrases and a modicum of Jewish knowledge and wisdom. This is an extremely ambitious novel, delightfully blending the ups and downs of domestic life, an exploration of culturally engrained prejudices, the EastCentral Florida ethos, the major issues of national and international concern and the vibrant interplay of man and nature. I love the authors chutzpah in bringing this all together, and I love the cascades of language and lists that carry it along.About the authorAndrew Furman is a professor of English at Florida Atlantic University and teaches in its creative writing MFA program. He is the author, most recently, of the environmental memoir Bitten: My Unexpected Love Affair with Florida (2014, reviewed in these pages), which was named a Finalist for the ASLE Environmental Book Award, and My Los Angeles in Black and (Almost) White (2010).

With a few exceptions, women are rarely booked and theyre rarely headliners. Thats why Mariannette, of Fort Myers, decided to take matters into her own hands. The club circuit didnt appeal to her. Its too male-dominated, too lonely and scary for women out there on the road, she says. Even the guys get scared. Over two decades ago, she won the comedy portion of a talent competition in Orlando, performing in front of 2,500 people. But she didnt realize it would mean going on tour. As a single mom, with two young children, she couldnt do it. If I had taken that opportunity, she says, my children would have failed. No success is big enough for that. But now her children are 22 and 17. I am desperately waiting for what white people call the empty nest, she jokes. So I can travel. I can be free and funny around the country. Part Puerto Rican and part Dominican, she calls herself a Dominirican, or, a Phillirican, as she grew up in Philadelphia. Phillys my hood, she says. When she moved to Fort Myers 24 years ago, it would be so quiet, Id be scared, she says, explaining that in Philly, when she heard gunshots, shed know what areas to avoid. She came to comedy through theater, which she discovered in college. At 19, she attended Penn sylv ania State University. I went in as an aerospace engineering major, she says. I wanted to be a fighter pilot. It was the Top Gun era that influenced all those young minds. When I was 7, my mom told me there was going to be a war, and I believed her. I went to Air Force camp, was in ROTC all through middle school and high school. Then she went to college, the first of her family to attend. Her first engineering class intimidated and confused her; she couldnt understand a word. Is she speaking Asian? I had no idea what she was saying. Her second class was theater, her elective. When I walked in and heard them speak, I heard angels sing! She had found her place. Years later, she found herself in Orlando, where she taught improv comedy traffic school classes for two or three years, in Spanish. And I was born, she says. I was teaching traffic school, in Spanish! Being funny in Spanish. Thats how comedy became a part of my life. She doesnt want to go on the road and stay in a different motel every night, battling with the cutthroat world of standup comedy. Im older, Im Spanish, Im female, she says. I have all the odds against me. So if I have a chance, it has to be with (something I build) with my own hands. Because theyre not letting me in. I dont know why. Im too different, too much or too whatever. They dont want to deal with it. But I know Im good when Im good. My faces and my analogies are my strong suit. My faces that comes from my theater experience. I express out loud on my face. It works for me. Theres safety in numbers, she thought, and came up with Diva Comedy Night, now called the Comedianettes, a revue of various female stand-up comics that can be seen in a theater setting. She presented her idea to the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers, which welcomed her with open arms. We noticed that in the area there were predominantly male comedians and very few female headliners or allfemale shows, says Lydia Black, executive director of the Alliance. We were looking to showcase some people who may not have had the opportunity to get up on the stage. The shows are very successful. She sold out three different shows last year, as well as another show this July. The next show will be Oct. 27, with another one scheduled for Feb. 2. Mariannettes helping us recognize female comedians outside of a bar environment, Ms. Davis says. People who might not go to a comedy club or a bar can hear them in a theater. That is Marianne ttes p lan; to have rotating lineup of female comics perform in various theaters. She estimates there are 105 theaters from Ocala to South Beach. Each one, a potential venue. Some comics, she explains, dont have a full hour of material. They may have 15 minutes, or 20. Offering a diverse group of female comics gives them stage time and also gives audiences a variety of humorous styles and personalities. The Comedianettes are like the Rockettes they would change dancers, but it was still the Rockettes, she says. And then I finish the show. I bring the funny. In July, Mariannette followed a woman who was deadpan and sardonic. She exploded on stage with energy and pizzazz. I just want to work, she says. I dont care about fame, just put me on a stage from here to Katmandu. I just want to work. This is a moving pieces production, she explains. You will not likely see the same people together. Its a mix. I love to see a mix. She scouts out talent in person and online, and has friends in Colorado who scout for her, too. She has a few guidelines: in addition to being funny, she wants her comedians to not do blue material, and she doesnt want them to preach or man-bash. You eliminate the majority of your audience (that way), she explains. You can bash your man, but dont bash other men. Approximately 90 percent of her audiences here have been female. But the men have just as much fun as the women do, she says. I make sure I choose females that make me laugh. I appreciate their humor. I have to take that jump, she adds. I believe in myself enough to do this. Im ready. Im going to take a shot. There are a lot of closed doors, a lot of closed minds. But Im going to be an artist, no matter what this world does to me. I wont stop. I cant stop. I hustle, she says. Im exhausted girl. Im tired. But Im still inspired. And as funny as hell.

FILM CAPSULES BY DAN HUDAKBlacKkKlansman (John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace) In the early 0s, an African-American police officer (Washington, Denzels son) in Colorado Springs infiltrates the Klu Klux Klan with the help of his white Jewish colleague (Driver). Director Spike Lees film is a bit long at 135 minutes, but its also nicely acted and well told. Rated R.Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Bronte Carmichael) An adult Christopher Robin (McGregor) tries to keep his job, and his family together, when his old friend Winnie the Pooh (voice of Lee Cummings) finds him in London in need of help. The visual effects are impressive, but the story isnt really for kids or adults and its pretty dull. Rated PG.Mission: Impossible Fallout (Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson) Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team botch a mission and then have to save the world to make up for their mistake. The action is once again top notch, and the story has more twists than you expect. This is one of the best action franchises in movies today. Rated PG-13.Leave No Trace (Ben Foster, Thomasin McKenzie, Dale Dickey) A father (Foster) and daughter (McKenzie) live off the grid in Oregon, but things change when he is arrested for living on public land. Its a minimalist, fascinating study of an unusual but healthy father-daughter relationship that features solid performances from Foster and McKenzie. Rated PG.Generation Wealth (Limo Bob, Tiffany Masters, Florian Homm) Documentarian Lauren Greenfield examines societys obsession with wealth, image and material possessions in this cautionary doc that raises more questions than it can answer. Still, its an intriguing watch for its naked honesty, especially from those who greatly desired wealth, had it, lost it and now understand it didnt make them happy. Rated R.Skyscraper (Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Pablo Schreiber) A security expert (Johnson) must save his wife (Campbell) and kids from a fire on the 96th floor of the tallest building in the world. Its a clear riff on Die Hard and The Towering Inferno, but its entertaining enough to be worth a look. Rated PG-13.Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, James Cromwell) Claire (Howard) and Owen (Pratt) return to the setting of Jurassic World to evacuate the dinosaurs when a volcano threatens the island. The premise may be a bit different, but not much feels new, or fresh. Its a downer when you spend 128 minutes watching a movie and leave feeling like youve seen it before.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 23-29, 2018 C11 | Naples 239.325.8505 Lifestyle and Legacy Choices by DesignSM LATEST FILMSAlphaIs it worth $10? NoBased on the trailers and marketing, viewers have every right to expect Alpha to eagerly embrace the standard dog movie tropes: Lost soul human befriends a feisty canine, and the two form a symbiotic bond that changes both of their lives. These things do happen, but it inexplicably takes director Albert Hughes 40 minutes nearly half of the 96-minute running time to get there. Its an example of too much tedious exposition leading to a level of indifference from which the movie cannot recover. Theres also this: Its fully subtitled, meaning not one word of English is spoken. Twenty thousand years ago in Europe (does it matter where the story is set when theres no civilization in the world?), humans survive by hunting and taking care of their own. They hunt for food, not sport, and must store enough rations to last through the brutally cold and snowy winter. The leader of the tribe is Tau (Johannes Haukur Johannesson), and for the first time his son Keda (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is joining him on the hunt. It will make a man out of him, Tau insists, but Keda is not a natural warrior. Things go wrong, and Keda is believed to be dead. This is both the best and worst part of the film. Its the best because Keda is trapped on a small ledge in the middle of a cliff with seemingly no chance of escape. Its perilous and palm-sweat inducing, and it has us genuinely wondering how he can escape. Its the worst because far too much time is spent with Tau lamenting the supposed death of his son, which everybody whos seen the trailer knows isnt real. Tau mourning is therefore a complete waste of time. Keda eventually befriends a wolf dog and they help one another survive, with Keda knowing he needs to return home before winter comes. There are impressive visual sequences, and as seen in 3D some landscapes and action scenes inspire awe. Its not, however, so cinematographically stunning that it sufficiently compensates for the sluggish story. Animal lovers, the target audience for the film, are unlikely to find much joy here. Theres ample hunting and killing, for one. The visual effects for the larger animals, particularly wolves and a panther, are murky and feel a little cheap, for another. Most of all, though, a 2016 news story about the production reported four bison were slaughtered for a scene (that was cut from the film). The report depicted the removal of the animals hides (source: https://www.cbc. ca/news/canada/calgary/bisons-killedfilm-alberta-1.3653436). This negative press perhaps also explains why Alpha was on the shelf for a year before getting a never-desirable August release date. Offensive to some peoples sensibilities or not, Alpha as a whole simply isnt that good. Its structurally flawed and not nearly as accessible to mainstream audiences as the marketing would lead you to believe. No harm in catching this on home video when the time comes and even then only as a second or third choice. dan >> Filming for Alpha took place in Vancouver, Alberta and Iceland.

Best to sort it all out before it becomes more confusing. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Get all the facts about that investment opportunity before you put even one dollar into it. There could be hidden problems that could prove to be costly. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Compromising on a matter you feel strongly about not only ends the impasse, but can be a win-win deal for all. Remember: Scorpios do well with change. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) With all the demands you currently have to deal with, accepting the help of family and friends could be the wisest course to take at this time. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Recent upsetting incidents might have left you with a big gap in your self-assurance. Refill it by spending time with those who know how worthy you really are. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A dispute about money needs to be resolved quickly, before it festers into something more serious. Consider asking an impartial colleague to mediate the matter. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A soft approach could be more effective than making a loud demand for the information you need. You might even find yourself with more data than you expected. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A little wool-gathering for the usually productive Lamb is all right if it helps you unwind. But be careful; too much daydreaming can put you behind schedule in your work.TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A work problem is close to being resolved. Now you can go ahead and celebrate the week, accepting invitations from friends who enjoy your company.GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Getting your new plan accepted wont be a major hassle if you have the facts to back it up. Your supporters are also prepared to help you make your case. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dealing with a pesky job problem might be time-consuming but necessary. The sooner you get this situation settled, the sooner you can move on to other matters. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Career advancement is favored thanks to your impressive work record. On the personal side, you should soon hear some good news about an ailing family member.BORN THIS WEEK: Youre sought out for the wonderful advice youre able to offer to others.

For example, assume youre in three notrump and West leads a heart. It seems perfectly normal to win Easts nine with the queen and lead the jack of diamonds, hoping to find West with the queen. In that case, youd be sure of making at least 10 tricks. In the actual deal, however, if you led the jack and finessed, youd soon find yourself down one after East took the queen and returned a heart, establishing Wests suit. But the fact is that if West has the queen of diamonds, you can make the contract by playing the hand in an entirely different way and at the same time almost certainly make the contract if East has the queen. You have to make a peculiarlooking play to accomplish your purpose, but it is nonetheless a very sound play. All you have to do is to lead a club to dummys queen at trick two and return a low diamond. It is true that in the actual deal East can defeat you by putting up the queen of diamonds instead of following low, but how many players do you know who would make that play? East would almost surely play low from the Q-x, Q-x-x or Q-x-x-x of diamonds, and after he did, you would have the contract all wrapped up regardless of how West proceeded. Of course, its been drilled into all of us that, with the diamond combination shown in this deal, declarer should always initiate the suit by leading toward the K-10-x-x. But standard practice should be willingly suspended when the appropriate occasion arises, and there is no doubt that this deal is one of those rare times.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection designated Hilton Naples as a Three Palm member of its Florida Green Lodging Program, which establishes environmental guidelines for hotels to conserve natural resources and prevent pollution. Hilton Naples and Shulas Naples strongly encourage other Naples hotels and restaurants to help protect our environment and marine life in particular by eliminating the use of plastic straws, said Clark Hill, general manager, Hilton Naples. While it is certainly not the answer to our pollution problems, it is one of the easiest steps we can take as part of our overall green practices. While most local municipalities have not initiated moves to outlaw plastic straws, Marco Island City Council voted in March to ban them from all restaurants on the beachside of North Collier Boulevard. For now, local restaurants are taking the initiative themselves to find more environmentally friendly options.Take Note:Sea Salt hosts a five-course wine dinner at 6:30 Friday, Aug. 24 with dishes like shrimp cannelloni, Dover sole, rabbit porchetta, lamb with tomato chutney and kaffir lime churros with mango sorbet. $85. 1186 Third St. S. 434-7258 or The Wine Store hosts a wine and cheese pairing coordinated by local fromage expert Frank Annese and wine expert Patrick Gray, from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25.

When I first started writing this column, I knew the Fed Ex and UPS trucks would be unloading boxes at my office, but I was a bit unprepared for the flood of samples Id receive. This is not a complaint. I am delighted with the range and quality of the wines Im privileged to sample and evaluate. And, as Ive mentioned in past columns, I take the responsibility seriously and have a tasting panel of very knowledgeable friends who join me in monthly sipping sessions. However, I do get emails from the wineries and their ad agencies asking, Did you have a chance to try the Chateau Bonjour we sent? But, since my column is published only every other week, and since I have room for three or maybe four reviews in each, I do get a bit behind and the bottles stack up in the cellar. So, every once in a while, I try to catch up a bit and offer you a range of new choices and recommendations. When my wife Debi and I first fell down the rabbit hole into the wine world, I made myself one promise: I would never serve or recommend a wine I wouldnt drink myself. In fact, when the panel is finished sampling and evaluating the wines, we finish some of them off with dinner, and then everybody takes home a few bottles. We like them, so we continue to enjoy them. And on more than one occasion, Ive tasted a sample bottle and immediately ordered a case. Or two.In order to get a bit ahead of the sample shipments, Im happy to offer your new shopping list of excellent value wines. We liked them all. Most may be available locally or can be ordered on line and shipped to you. Ranch 32 Cabernet Sauvignon Monterey 2015 ($39) The dark ruby color in the glass promises a full-bodied palate with exuberant black mixed fruit, leather and smoke. WW 88. Clos Pegase Estate Chardonnay Napa Valley Mitsukos Vineyard 2016 ($30) After nine months in the barrel, this wine offers toasty oak on the nose with hints of vanilla and caramel. Melon and apricot flavors predominate, riding on a creamy texture from the malolactic fermentation. If you like an oak-style Chardonnay, try this one. WW 89-90. Les Dauphins Ctes du Rhne Rserve Rouge 2016 ($11) A characteristic Rhone blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvdre with a rich ruby color. Black mixed fruit, with currant flavors predominant and hints of spice, plum and smoke. Excellent value. WW 88. Fetzer Riesling Monterey County NV ($10) An off-dry example of this German varietal with a rich yellow color in the glass, a bit of characteristic petrol on the nose and round mouthfeel with predominant melon flavors and a long finish. Great value for the price. WW 87.Gato Negro Sauvignon Blanc Chile 2017 ($5) A pleasant, light summer sipper, with pronounced lemon and grapefruit aromas and flavors and a bit of a green note as well. Nicely balanced between the lively acidity and fruit flavors. Another very good value. WW 87-88.Scheid Family VDR Red Blend Monterey Hames Valley 2015 ($20) The VDR stands for very dark red, and it is. An uncommon blend of Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah, theres nothing petite about the flavors. Explosive blueberry, vanilla and pepper, along with mouth-filling deep plum and tobacco. Definitely a sipping wine. WW 93.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. I was watching a few wine experts sampling and evaluating wines, and they slurped them pretty noisily from the glass. Why are we supposed to slurp wine? Caroline L., Port St. LucieA. Slurping has the same effect as when you swirl the wine in your glass before tasting, only more so. Both swirling and slurping are ways to get oxygen into the liquid and help it to open up, bringing out the aromas and flavors. So, go ahead and slurp. Its the professional thing to do.

You rarely need a reservation. Its so quiet that many restaurants take muchneeded breaks at this time of year. But youd have thought it was prime time on a recent Saturday night at The Pearl Steak & Seafood, a new dining spot where Stonewood used to be in Fountain Park near the intersection of Vanderbilt Beach and Airport-Pulling roads. The bar was filled and so loud that it was tough to converse with the hostess. We managed to overhear her tell the couple ahead of us who had not made a reservation that the earliest they might land a table was about two hours hence. They opted to head elsewhere. We had had the foresight to book through Open Table and were immediately led to our table, which was mercifully distant from the lively bar in the booth-filled dining room that was mostly occupied but in which the volume was much lower. Why was half the town at this one restaurant? Well, I suspect it has something to do with the fact that the owners, two generations of the Miller family, are wellknown for their previous restaurant, the Oyster House, a 30-year institution in Everglades City that was ravaged by Hurricane Irma. Rather than rebuild it, they chose to move north to the well-appointed location Stonewood left in February. The interior looks much as it did during the Stonewood era but has been enhanced with trappings from the Oyster House, such as nautical artwork and little model ships that stand atop the room dividers. The opening menu covers a fair amount of ground (and water), but not so much as to be unmanageable as the staff gets acclimated. On this busy night it appeared that things were a bit rocky for the front-ofthe-house team as we waited 15 minutes while servers passed by us, cleared other tables and talked among themselves without acknowledging us. At long last, our server arrived. Once he found us, however, he was pleasant and attentive for the duration of our visit. Wed had plenty of time to decide on both drinks and dinner and wasted no time in ordering. From the adult beverage offerings, my companion tried a citrusy Yealands sauvignon blanc. I explored the craft cocktails, sampling a Pearl Fizz, which consisted of Hendricks gin, cucumber, simple syrup, sour mix and soda. It was refreshing if a touch light on gin. Some excellent crusty bread and honey butt er kept us occupied until our appetizers appeared.There are salads and chowder, ceviche, mussels, shrimp and oysters. Also on the menu is the ubiquitous coconut shrimp ($12.20) and the less often seen gator ($13.20). In this case, there were four shrimp, each on its own wooden skewer, covered in coconut-laden batter then fried. They were on the dry side, a touch overcooked, although the orange horseradish marmalade added some much-needed moisture and the tangy horseradish helped balance the sweetness of the coconut.The firetail gator was a creative variation on boom-boom shrimp. In this case, chunks of gator tail had been lightly fried then tossed in firetail aioli, a combination of sriracha, lime and mayo. The gator was tender and tasty on its own, better still with the sauce. As mentioned previously, there are just a few fish choices grouper, snapper, salmon and trout, along with shrimp and mussels but it looks as if there are daily specials that will allow the kitchen to take advantage of other options when they are available. The crispy snapper ($26.10) had a light coating on it and so was mildly crisp, which was fine as it allowed the flavor and texture of the fish to come through. That was enhanced by a lively salsa verde and mango citrus salsa. Properly cooked green beans and excellent sweet potato waffle fries were good sides, although a small cup of ketchup that accompanied the fries was a little puzzling. Does anyone dip sweet potatoes in ketchup? The 12-ounce ribeye ($34.10) was tender, cooked as ordered and had a rich beef flavor. It, too, was served with green beans. I chose the potato flats, which turned out to be a thin version of steak fries that were lightly salted and just crisp enough. For dessert, we shared an order of Key lime doughnuts ($8.20). Two tender, warm cake doughnuts covered in key lime glaze were accompanied by a scoop of coconut ice cream. It was just right for two to share and a fitting tropical ending to the meal. The Pearl has some kinks to work out, but thats to be expected of a restaurant thats been open for just a few weeks. It has a lot of things going for it as well, including an experienced team of managers and chefs (both the chef and the sous are Culinary Institute of America alums), a solid menu that suits both meat and seafood lovers (plus some vegetarian options). The dining room is full of comfortable booths, for those who like a livelier setting, theres the bar, and smokers can enjoy the great outdoors. The Oyster House may be no more, but its Pearl shines on. Coconut shrimp each get their own skewer and are served with orange horseradish marmalade. Crispy snapper is topped with salsa verde and mango citrus salsa, served with green beans and sweet potato waffle fries.KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYKey lime doughnuts are paired with coconut ice cream.
