When it advertises the position in the region no one applies, so it has to search, locate and hire from outside the area. The new employee moves his family to Southwest Florida, works a year, and decides to return home, quitting his job. The same thing happens (and used to happen a lot more) for certain jobs in health care, the construction trades or others companies spend significant money recruiting outside the area to find employees. Those workers are less likely to remain a permanent part of the fabric here than employees with the necessary skills who have roots in the region, who will stay to contribute their incomes and taxes to a more stable and robust economy.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYGreat leadershipIts been eight years since Gov. Rick Scott took up the mantle of leadership in my state eight beautiful years of the early 21st century that have banged on by like a fast train, 2010 to 2018. R.I.P., sweet days. And now Gov. Scott is aimed at the United States Senate like a loosed arrow that will either hit its target or not in fewer than 40 days. You have until Oct. 9 to make that happen one way or another, by registering to vote. What an extraordinary change hes wrought for Floridians this decade, even just on my road alone a dead-ender populated by people, cows, a creek, a lot of woods and a herd of pickups. Here, 50-year-old palmettos and 150-year-old live oaks encircle us all, standing in awe of the Sunshine Staters weve become. Gov. Scott has so profoundly inspired us, as great leaders do George Washington, Mahatma Gandhi, Chesty Puller and Martin Luther King Jr. all come to mind that we no longer litter on my road. And neither do a lot of other people both east and west of Lake Okeechobee. No sir, we get rid of our stuff (urban runoff, septic run-off, agricultural run-off, big-development run-off) in appropriate, Gov. Scott-approved trash dumps, like the Caloosahatchee or the St. Lucie rivers. Gov. Scott has allowed us to do that for some time now, ever since he stiff-armed the federal Environmental Protection Agency, preventing clean water regulations from being enforced in Florida, and ever since he amputated the states Department of Community Affairs, which used to check every big development proposal in Florida to make sure the plan wouldnt ruin water or destroy wetlands that protect the rest of us, before permitting it. Gone. Tossed in the boneyard courtesy of the governor. Weve become more peaceful, too, under his leadership at least out here in the country. We no longer shoot up the woods near our houses, every day. Now were on a three-times-a-week schedule, near as I can figure. Not because weve lost our taste for the sharp pop of semiautomatic weapons morning and evening or that bracing smell of (not just orange blossoms from nearby groves) cordite; we havent. But simply because now, we can wander all over the state with our weapons of choice, and we know it. And we can shoot anybody we please using AR-15s or Glock handguns equipped with high capacity magazines, too, as long as we just call it Stand Your Ground. Thank you, Gov. Scott. The liberals can have other programs for their ground somewhere else, like California plowing your ground, or planting your ground, or weeding your ground (take your choice of meanings, in California) or harvesting your ground, perhaps but not here. Here, the governor has unequivocally supported Stand Your Ground, like most of his fellow Republican legislators. Thats leadership. As long as Marion Hammer says it is. Shes the NRA lobbyist, a former president of the NRA, instrumental in creating Stand Your Ground laws in Florida and elsewhere. She even got to participate in both Senate and House committee meetings following the Valentines Day tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. She had to show up in person to make sure those survivors couldnt reach the hearts of Republican legislators when the stricken students begged them to do something, like outlaw high-capacity magazines. Those men and women looked like deer in the headlights until she tightened their resolve. You want to get rid of highcapacity magazines and restrict them to 10 rounds or less? Youre a pinko, socialist lefty. You hate the Second Amendment. And whats more, if Marion says youre a pinko, socialist lefty and you hate the second A., youll never get elected again in this state, whether its true or not. Gov. Scott, I once learned, wears cowboy boots made by the same Texas bootmaker who handcrafts boots for George W. Bush, Rick Perry and other notable elephants. If my neighbors knew that and wanted to fork over the significant cash required to get such a pair of boots, theyd probably order them, too. As it is, however, there are other ways they can follow the leader: just shutting up about climate change, for example. Out here in the country, off the beaches and far from communities where king tides and flooding are becoming increasingly common and costly, many of us recognize that Gov. Scotts seemingly oddball order to state employees never to use the term climate change was delivered merely to protect our children from nightmares. Its because hes a kind-hearted, very nice guy. We all know that. Just as kids used to have nightmares when they thought the Soviets were going to nuke their elementary schools, children today envision floods or fires sweeping through their homes because of climate change. And what great leader would want children to suffer such fears? Not Gov. Scott. If we just dont mention climate change, the children wont know. Neither will business investors in Florida or coastal homebuyers. Thank you, again, sir. How else has the governor helped us prepare for the future, like every great leader? The ways are too numerous to list here, but let me name one. The governor seized the day after Donald Trumps election to the White House two years ago and virtually hand-picked his successor, another Trump lover, U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis. Now thats some leadership for you. Rep. DeSantis even builds Trump-style walls out of play blocks in his living room with his children, weve learned. Wouldnt it be great to have four more years of such a governor in Tallahassee, to follow Gov. Scotts model of great leadership? roger

I dont wish to be flippant about tragic and costly storms, so Ill spare you the glib analogies, other than to describe an American society that is being overwhelmed by floods of distrust. The destruction is not just the result of one man that is, the demagogic, grossly incapable Donald Trump. Instead, its an accumulation over the decades of amoral self-enrichment by those in power. It has obliterated any sense of community, the belief that we are all in this together. No longer do we trust our institutions or the people in charge of them. Thats fertile ground to someone like Trump, whose election was in large part due to millions of people being so angry at being defrauded that they were willing to take a chance on someone whos obviously unfit, just to spite the system that, in their minds, had betrayed them. Youd think those opposing him would have learned a lesson from how he took advantage of their hubristic paralysis. And some of them have. Unfortunately, its the wrong lesson: Some of the leading lights of the Democratic Party are dimming. Theyve clearly decided to play the same game as he does, to out-Trump Trump. Granted, Michelle Obamas When they go low, we go high remark was naive, at best. Still, with apologies to Michelle, be prepared to mud wrestle in the pigpen. However, When they get sleazy, dont be cheesy. Thats exactly what Sens. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris did. Theyve both been afflicted by the Democratic presidential bug and were out to make a name for themselves as they aggressively grilled Trumps Supreme Court wannabe Brett Kavanaugh. Booker was chomping at the bit at the hearing, and announced that he would risk expulsion from the Senate by publicly disclosing a confidential email. It turned out that he knew full well that the email had been cleared for public consumption. Cheesy. But no more so than Sen. Harris pathetically trying to intimidate a witness: Be careful with your answer, she said to Judge Kavanagh, before asking him if hed met with a Trump lawyer, which might have raised questions if she presented any evidence of wrong-doing. She did not. What she also did was quote Kavanaugh out of context on his abortion record, totally distorting what he had said. Not even cheesy. Velveeta maybe. Worst of all, the Democrats, namely Dianne Feinstein, really blew it when it came to handling make that mishandling the charge that Kavanaugh might have sexually assaulted a female student when they were both in high school in the 1980s. The accusations are murky and have only recently emerged, extremely late in Kavanaughs advise and consent process. The stakes are incredibly high. Supreme Court justices serve for life, so these serious accusations should have been thoroughly vetted long ago. Score another one for Democratic ineptitude, which is probably the main reason that Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans have any hope of staying in power to continue drowning this country. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Trump not benefiting from economic boomPresident Donald Trump is showing that its possible to preside over a period of peace and prosperity and still be notably unpopular. Over the past several months, Trump has opened even more of a wedge between the largely benign material conditions in the country and his own political standing, which is precarious and appears to be sliding backward. This isnt how its supposed to work. Republican politicos believed, reasonably enough, that last years tax cuts would stoke growth and create a good-news backdrop for Republicans in the midterms. The substantive part of this theory has worked swimmingly, with headlines about middle-class incomes increasing over $61,000 for the first time, blue-collar jobs growing at their fastest clip in 30 years, and small-business confidence reaching an all-time high. The only flaw is that the drumbeat of good news has coincided, lately, with a drop in Trumps numbers. In much of the recent polling, hes dipped back under 40 percent. He hasnt done this with any spectacular misstep. What Trump has done, predictably, week after week, is mess up the easy stuff. Its not hard through gritted teeth and insincerely, if necessary to say the appropriate things about an American hero upon his passing. Its not hard to limit your tweets on the morning of Sept. 11, for just a few hours, to the topic of the anniversary of the attacks. Its not hard to avoid attacking your own attorney general in public, in an escalating fashion meant to inflict the greatest possible humiliation. Its not hard to avoid throwing around the word TREASON loosely or to muse about changing the libel laws to exact retribution on your critics. Any president grapples with the fact that he cant control events; Trump grapples with the fact that he cant control himself. Its not as though any one thing the Stormy Daniels affair, the Cohen plea deal, the security-clearance controversy, the Omarosa book, etc., etc. is as consequential as its portrayed, but one damn thing after another adds up. Trump has an amazing ability, through the force of his personality and his mediagenic provocations, to blot out the sun. He wouldnt be president without this quality. Its just that, given the positive state of the country, less blotting and more sun are called for. Some caveats: Presidential popularity means something different in the age of Trump. He won election in 2016 with a favorable rating below 40 percent in many polls, so a return to that level may be less debilitating for him than prior presidents. Its not as though hes creating controversies in an otherwise placid environment. He is confronted with an inflamed opposition, an extremely hostile press corps and a wide-ranging, aggressive special counsel investigation. Finally, it is still possible that gardenvariety Republicans will find a way to distinguish themselves from Trump this year. All that said, business is booming, and yet the president who is presiding over the good times and signed the tax package that has boosted the recovery further isnt enjoying their full political benefit. An economic boom is a terrible thing to waste. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYKing Features bob FRANKENKing Features

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: Celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month in style.

Gov. Rick Scott appointed Mr. Marceno, 46, on Sept. 21. The new sheriff says he intends to run for the elected office in 2020. I am beyond excited to start my role as sheriff, Sheriff Marceno said. I take this appointment very seriously and look forward to giving my all by serving the people of Lee County. According to his biography on the Sheriffs Office website, the Bronx native started in law enforcement in Suffolk County, New York, in 1996. He joined the Collier County Sheriffs Office in 2003 as a patrol deputy. He eventually retired as assistant to Collier Sheriff Kevin Rambosk. In 2012 he was awarded the Collier Countys Distinguished Public Service Award, given to the countys top public servant. Sheriff Marceno began his tenure at the Lee County Sheriffs Office in 2013 as a lieutenant in the Public Services Division. Sheriff Scott appointed him undersheriff Sept. 1, 2016. He assumed supervisory responsibilities for day-to-day operations. He also expanded his community engagement, officially representing the sheriff in his absence. The new sheriff graduated from the FBI National Academy in 2017 and is on track to graduate from FGCU with a bachelors degree in criminal justice. He is a member of the South American Theft Group Intelligence Network, which focuses on Transnational Criminal Networks operating in South Florida and elsewhere. He also volunteers as a board member for Pickup the Ball, a local group dedicated to reaching young people at risk through sports. I have no doubt the people of Lee County will be well taken care of with Carmine Marceno at the helm, said Mike Scott. I have worked with him for years and there is nobody with more passion and heart than him. I am confident he will serve us all well. Sheriff Scott was first elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2008, 2012 and 2016. COURTESY PHOTOCarmine Marceno, left, replaces Mike Scott, who won election to the Lee County post four times.

He then proceeds to give the boy mouth-tomouth resuscitation and finally the boy spits water out and breathes again. The mother says to the lifeguard, Thank you for saving my son, but he had a hat! Robert Cacioppo, theater director, Fort Myers Minnesotans tell jokes about Ole and Lena. Heres one: Ole calls the undertaker in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, and said, This is Ole Peterson. My wife, Lena, just died. The undertaker replied, Oh, Mr. Peterson, Im so sorry. Well be right over to pick her up. Where do you live? Ole said, I live at the end of Eucalyptus. Can you spell Eucalyptus, Mr. Peterson? asked the undertaker. Ole said, Let me just drag her over to Oak and you can pick her up there. Mike Martin, president, Florida Gulf Coast University I went up to the bar to get a couple of drinks. As I was waiting I overheard a guy near me bragging about all the people he knew. I know everybody, he said. He was going through a whole litany of names. There was no way he knew everyone. No way. Finally I heard him mention my wifes name. That was it, I could take no more. Sir, that is my wife. There is no way you know her. We have been together for 25 years. She has never mentioned you. To which he replied, Dont mean she dont know me. We talked a bit more and finally I said, OK. I will bet you she doesnt know you. He said, $1,000. Having had a few drinks, I replied, Fine, she is sitting at the table over there. The guy walked in front of me to the table. My wife looked up and shrieked, Leroy. She hugged him, they laughed. They talked for a while, reminiscing. He kept name dropping, which drove me crazy. I was out $1,000. The TV behind us had on a news update, something about the president. Leroy said, Man, Donny gets a bad rap all the time. I said, Donny? Wait, you know him too? Yeah, said Leroy. Donnys my man. We go way back. I know everybody. I couldnt take it again. I said, Leroy, the president will be at Mar-a-Largo tomorrow. I will drive you over there for double or nothing on that bet. OK, said Leroy. We arrived before the president did and waited outside the gates. Suddenly, as the presidential motorcade passed, the limo holding the president slammed on its brakes. The president hopped out and ran over. He hugged Leroy and shrieked, kind of like my wife had, as the two of them laughed with joy. The president eventually apologized that he had to go, but promised to fly Leroy to the White House for dinner with him and Melania. Mel missed him, he said. I stood there stunned. I was out $2,000. Leroy took me to the local caf for drinks. He knew the waitress, of course, and the cook, and all the patrons. Then the TV nearby showed a story on Pope Francis. Leroy smiled and said, Yep, I know him too. I thought about it. He had to be bluffing. He had to. I said, Leroy, I will use all the points on my credit card and fly us out to the Vatican, double or nothing. He said, OK. When we arrived at the Vatican there were thousands of people waiting for the Pope to come out and speak. We fought through the crowd to the front and waited. Eventually Leroy turned to me and said, How is the Pope gonna see me with all these people hanging around? Be right back. He left me alone. About 15 minutes later the Pope came out, with Leroy, their arms around each other, waving to the crowd. As the audience was cheering, the guy next to me asked, Whos that guy with Leroy?

The Salvation Army realized that it had never received a donation from the citys most successful lawyer, so a volunteer paid the lawyer a visit in his lavish office. The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, Our research shows that even though your annual income is over $2 million, you dont give a penny to charity. Wouldnt you like to give something back to our community? The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, First, did your research also show you that my mother is dying after a long painful illness, and she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to pay? Embarrassed, the rep mumbles, Uh, no, I didnt know that. Secondly, says the lawyer, Did it show that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and six children? The stricken rep begins to stammer an apology, but is cut off again Thirdly, did your research also show you that my sisters husband died in a dreadful car accident, leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three children, one of whom is disabled and another who has learning disabilities requiring an array of private tutors?

SUPPORT CLE A Benetting Veterans invited to pin ceremony to mark Vietnam War anniversaryCollier-Lee Honor Flight, an organization whose mission is to transport local veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit memorials and honor their service, has partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense to distribute the official lapel pin commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. A pinning ceremony is set for 9 a.m. on Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 12, at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers. Veteran check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. The event is free and open to the public. We encourage all eligible veterans to register to join us for this special ceremony, and we hope the public will attend to honor their dedication to our nation, Debi Lux, Collier-Lee Honor Flight founder and director, says. Any honorably discharged veteran who served in the United States armed forces between Nov. 1, 1955 and May 15, 1975, regardless of location, is eligible to receive the pin. Guest speaker at the ceremony will be 92-year-old retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. George Hardy, a Tuskegee airman whose career spanned nearly 30 years in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Lt. Col. Hardy was among the first black airmen to fly combat missions that provided escorts for bombers in Europe in 1945. He fought Nazis, North Koreans and Viet Cong, and some U.S. military commanders who discriminated against him and his fellow Tuskegee airmen because of the color of their skin. He retired in 1971 after a military career in which he received the Distinguished Flying Cross with Valor, the Air Medal with 11 Oak Leaf Clusters and the Commendation Medal with one Oak Leaf Cluster. Viet Nam veterans can register for the event by visiting, clicking on Veterans and downloading the veteran application. Veterans are requested to note 50th Pinning Event on the application. The completion of the veteran application will also submit a request for the veteran to participate in an upcoming Honor Flight. Support for these trips is provided by donors and volunteers and is at no cost to the veterans. Top priority is given to most senior heroes, WWII survivors, and any veteran with a terminal illness. The program extends to Korean and Vietnam War Veterans as space allows, on a chronological basis. Established in 2013, Collier-Lee Honor Flight is a nonprofit, 100 percent volunteer organization relying solely on donations. To learn more, visit, email or call 777-9295.

Be wise when donating to hurricane-relief effortsThe Better Business Bureau and the BBB Wise Giving Alliance advise donors that experienced disaster relief organizations are your best bet to provide emergency help for victims of Hurricane Florence. Its also important for contributors to ask about what activities their donations will fund. This is not amateur hour, notes Art Taylor, president and CEO of BBB Wise Giving Alliance. We have seen crowdfunding posts from individuals claiming to raise funds so they can deliver and distribute water, food and flashlights to impacted areas, he says. Even if sincere, such efforts may risk lives, complicate access by professional efforts and potentially divert donations that could be directed in more helpful ways. While we all want to help those in harms way as soon as we can, donors should watch out for newly created organizations that emerge that are either inexperienced in addressing disasters or may be seeking to deceive donors at a vulnerable time. BBB also expects to see price gougers and storm chasers looking to make a quick buck off cleanup and recovery efforts. Consumers can report suspected scams to or the office of the Attorney General in their state. For tips on avoiding questionable appeals, as well as a list of national BBB-accredited charities providing hurricane relief, go to The emergency phase of a disaster is just the beginning. Full recovery from a disaster will be a long-term activity that can take many months or years to accomplish, depending on the extent of the damage. Those truly concerned about helping communities bounce back will have many opportunities to help in the future. Follow the link above for a list of BBB-accredited charities raising funds for Hurricane Florence relief assistance. This list will be updated as additional relief efforts come to the attention of the BBB and its Wise Giving Alliance.


A14 NEWS WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYsities, colleges and technical schools to employers and employer needs. Then find the people and train them in certificate programs to meet those needs, now and in the future. Case in point: a huge gap early in the decade between the number of open jobs and the much smaller number of registered nurses with the skills to fill them now no longer exists, according to the data, released earlier this month. Health care along with social assistance is forecast as the fastest growing industry in the region between now and 2025, adding more than 1,670 workers each year, on average, the data shows. But jobs are being filled when they open with qualified people who have educations and established lives here. I think there should be a sense of (gratitude) in the region, a sense that our labor market has been working, because we are now witnessing a dynamic market, explains Dr. Chris Westley, an economist and director of the Regional Economic Research Institute at Florida Gulf Coast University. The gaps are much smaller than three or four years ago, or completely nonexistent as is the case with registered nurses. A lot of that is because these employers who demand the labor are recognizing that the gaps exit. That forces prices up, and higher prices signals two groups: workers, who demand skills for those jobs; and the education establishments in the region, which allocate their resources in ways to meet the demands for these skills. Thats pretty much what happened. To do the study, FGCU researchers teamed with those from Florida SouthWestern State College and Hodges University to crunch the numbers across Hendry, Glades, Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties for Workforce Now, a partner in the FutureMakers Coalition, which itself is a spearhead of the nonprofit Community Foundation. There are currently 6,578 employment-gap positions in Southwest Florida, a number that came from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity employers cant immediately fill their openings for those jobs. The goal of the report is to promote a more efficient allocation of scarce educational resources in our region, to address its workforce needs, said Dr. Debbie Psihountas, dean of the School of Business and Technology at FSW, in a press release. Knowing where to direct those resources can be difficult in a dynamic market. While the market remains dynamic, the FutureMakers Coalition, both academics and businesses, are showing remarkable agility in adjusting to the needs. While the construction industry continues to recover the recession and was the fastest growth industry from 2013 to 2017 with an increase of over 52 percent, the accommodation and food services, and retail trade, have grown immensely, said Dr. Aysegul Timur, dean of the Johnson School of Business at Hodges University. He attributes the growth both to newcomer residents and to increases in tourism, numbers that might slip in the future if regional leaders cant fix the water crises or red tides offshore and cyanobacteria in the Caloosahatchee River. The top 10 list of employment-gap jobs this year includes openings for retail supervisors, salespersons, maintenance and repair workers, supervisors for food preparation, landscaping and groundskeepers, construction trades supervisors, administrative supervisors, customer service representatives, maid and housekeeping cleaners, stock clerks and order fillers, the study shows. Median wages range from $11.08 per hour to $27.50 per hour, the study shows. Our focus here, recognized as unique, is solely on workforce development, explains Ms. LeSage, speaking of the FutureMakers Coalition. We focus on the workforce, and getting employers engaged. Were not talking about education for the sake of education, although we value that, too. But we fully buy into and appreciate and are striving to change peoples lives. To create social mobility and a stronger economy. The training includes a highly successful certificate program of six weeks a micro-credential pilot program to train certified nursing assistants, for example, and that will be expanded to include an 18-month program that can train the machinist at Immokalee Technical College, with the full support of Arthrex, a high-tech company located here, and help navigating the cost of these programs from FutureMakers and others. We have a ton of people underemployed or unemployed and a ton of open jobs that need to be filled, Ms. LeSage said. The answer is not that one size fits all when it comes to creating a skilled workforce. Thats what this study tells me. We need certified people who do not need a college degree, but we also need (college) degrees in our workforce. While retail or service-sector jobs are obviously not the most high paying, there is a demand for some very foundational skills, employability skills for our untapped workforce. So FutureMakers partners with Hodges and a variety of employers, along with CareerSource to develop training around foundational skills like customer service, communication, critical thinking skills, the ability to deal with difficult situations and still maintain highest integrity of your employers. And it works. Employers here have indicated these skill sets are challenged. So now were offering a credential around them a micro-credential program developed with local employers. That means jobs, income, better lives, and trained people who know how to educate themselves and move up. LABORFrom page 1LESAGE The Regional Workforce Study, with statistics from the ve-county area compiled and analyzed by researchers from FGCU, Hodges University and Florida SouthWestern State College, is commissioned each year by Workforce Now, a partner in the FutureMakers Coalition of businesses, academic institutions and training schools, which in turn is supported by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. Here are noteworthy numbers from the 2018 study, released earlier this month. Top 10 employment-gap jobs (more jobs than workers): retail supervisors, salespersons, maintenance and repair workers, supervisors for food preparation, landscaping and groundskeepers, construction trades supervisors, administrative supervisors, customer service representatives, maid and housekeeping cleaners, stock clerks and order llers. Total employment gap jobs: 6,578 Top ve high-demand growth occupations and numbers needed per year, now through 2025: >> Retail salespersons, 4,355 per year. >> Waiters/waitresses: 3,477 per year. >> Cashiers: 3,154 per year. >> Food prep and service: 2,544 per year. >> Landscaping and grounds-keeping: 2,022 per year Total workers employed, 2017 Southwest Florida: 573,482 Florida: 9.68 million United States: 153.34 million Average annual wages, 2017 Southwest Florida: $42,114 Florida: $47,779 United States: $55,331 Median hourly wage of employment-gap jobs: $11.08 to $27.50 Largest industries by employment, 2017 Retail trade: 18.5 percentAccommodation and food services: 15.6 percentHealth care and social assistance: 13.9 percent Construction: 11.7 percent Administrative and waste services: 7.54 percent The gaps are much smaller than three or four years ago, or completely nonexistent as is the case with registered nurses. A lot of that is because these employers who demand the labor are recognizing that the gaps exit. That forces prices up, and higher prices signals two groups: workers, who demand skills for those jobs; and the education establishments in the region, which allocate their resources in ways to meet the demands for these skills. Thats pretty much what happened. Dr. Chris Westley, an economist and director of the Regional Economic Research Institute at Florida Gulf Coast University COURTESY PHOTOSThe study shows that there continues to be a need for more restaurant servers, but the gap in the number of health care workers is closing.

James Cunningham, 53, later admitted to police hed had two liters of vodka and had smoked marijuana before trying to bake cookies on his George Foreman grill, reported WPLG Local 10. The experiment went wrong when the grill and cookies caught fire, so he covered them with a dry towel, which also caught fire. Firefighters said if hed been in the house any longer, he could have died from smoke inhalation. Anger management Djuan Lewis, 23, landed a new job at Benada Aluminum Products in Sanford on Aug. 30, a Thursday. On Sunday morning, his boss fired him. WFTV reported that following his dismissal, Lewis waited for his boss for two hours outside the business, then chased him and his girlfriend for a mile and a half, shooting at their car and hitting the rear bumper, trunk and right rear tire. Neither the supervisor nor his girlfriend was hurt. Sanford police arrested Lewis and changed him with attempted murder. Questionable judgmentSchool resource officer and part-time police officer Maryssa Boskoski, 32, was called into a classroom at Liberty Preparatory School in Smithville, Ohio, on Aug. 30 to help rouse a sleeping student who could not be awakened by the teacher or even the principal. When Boskoski arrived, The Washington Post reported, her solution was to unholster her Taser, remove the firing cartridge and pull the trigger, causing an electric buzz that woke the student and shocked the school community. Smithville Police Chief Howard Funk placed Boskoski on unpaid leave and told WEWS news station Boskoski had been disciplined a month earlier, also for a Taser-related incident. An investigation was ongoing.Oops New Jersey resident Gregory Lazarchick, 56, made a bad day worse on July 21 when he told greeters at Disneys Saratoga Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista hed been sent by al-Qaida to blow the place up. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the greeters told Orange County deputies Lazarchick complained of having a bad day before issuing his threat, but deputies found no bomb-making materials in Lazarchicks hotel room. The mans sister reported he had suffered a head injury several years ago and sometimes said inappropriate things. The remorseful Lazarchick posted bond after his arrest for false report of a bombing.Ewwww At Kirby High School in Memphis, things are quiet as a mouse ... or a rat. Shelby County Schools Superintendent Dorsey Hopson told the Memphis Commercial Appeal hes looking for a temporary home for Kirbys 800 students after closing the school Sept. 5 due to a rat infestation. The problem started in mid-August, when district personnel uncovered a rats nest during a renovation project. Eighty rats were trapped at the school and poison was set out. When students returned after Labor Day, poisoned rats began dying within the schools walls and the stench became overwhelming. Calling the situation an unavoidable act of nature, Hopson said he expects students to return in early November. Irony Lona and Joseph Johnson of Bellingham, Wash., survived the Las Vegas mass shooting last October and decided to get a dog to help with the trauma that haunted them after the incident. We heard that dogs are good pets to help with the healing and PTSD ... and got Jax, Joseph told the Bellingham (Washington) Herald. But on Sept. 2, neighbor Odin Maxwell, 49, shot and killed Jax, telling police the dog was chasing his chickens. An investigation showed no chickens were harmed, and Maxwell was cited for discharging a firearm.Family values Patricia Ann Hill, 69, of White Hall, Ark., called 911 on July 28 to report she had shot her husband, Frank, 65. But she had a motive: Patricia told Jefferson County Sheriffs investigators she had previously disagreed with her husbands purchase of a pornography channel on Dish Network, and she canceled the channel, telling Frank that if he reordered it, hed have to leave. That day, reported the Pine Bluff Commercial, the Dish bill arrived, revealing that the channel had been re-added, so Patricia confronted Frank in his man cave and told him to go. When he refused, Patricia fetched a .22-caliber pistol from the house and shot him twice, killing him. Hill was charged with capital murder and held without bond in the Jefferson County adult detention center. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

A20 NEWS WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGSibling rivalries, jealousies can create landmines for parentsKate saw it happening, but felt that there was nothing she could do. Her son, Jim, had offered her daughter Sarahs husband Matt a position in his very successful business. Matt is a sweetheart of a guy, but in the 10 years hes been married to Sarah, hes held and lost just as many jobs. At the time Jim offered the position, Matt was out of work once again. Within weeks, Kate began to receive the phone calls. Jim called, complaining that Matt had called in sick, missing a critically important meeting. Sarah accused her brother of rudely insulting her husband. She asked Kate to speak to Jim to let up on Matt. Although Kate had promised herself that she would stay out of it, she intervened. Jim exploded, telling Kate that she always took Sarahs side and that she had never stood up for him in his entire life. Kate confessed that she then made matters worse with Sarah by suggesting ways that Matt might improve his work performance. Sarah blasted her mother stating that Kate didnt think Matt was good enough, and that she had always favored Jim. Kate was devastated by her childrens fury. She had always prided herself on being an enlightened parent and thought she had made every effort to be equally fair and attentive to both of her children. How did things turn out so terribly wrong?As parents, we certainly start out with the best of intentions. We listen to the experts and pore over the parenting guidebooks convinced that we will do it right. We will raise each of our children with the right amount of l ove, care and discipline. And in return, they will appreciate our efforts and love us back unconditionally. Oh, if only it worked that way. As demonstrated in the fictional account above, all of our children are uniquely different individuals who strive to define themselves as separate and apart from their siblings. They have very defined personalities, interests and abilities, and view the world from their own vantage points. Although parents usually take steps to be equal and fair and to promote harmonious relationships among their children, it is not in their power to orchestrate the outc ome. It is really up to the siblings to determine if they are motivated to adapt and get along with each other. Major life events throughout childhood help define the level of closeness or distance that family members experience. And milestones during adult life leaving home, getting married, major illnesses, career successes or failures, etc. have a bearing on whether siblings remain close, or rivalries fester. The choice of a spouse has an especially loaded impact on the sibling bond. In the best of circumstances, the new spouse can soften friction and add a tremendous amount to the extended family harmony. But needless to say, this new person can also bring a host of unfortunate competitions and insecurities to the mix. There can be jealousies about who makes the most money, has the bigger house or the smartest child. Parents must be acutely sensitive to these areas of discomfort, and must be very diplomatic in order to avoid stepping into the landmines. It is not uncommon for our children to test our loyalties or try to draw us in where we dont belong. If we are brutally honest, we must admit to ourselves that each of our children brings out very different parts of us. We often understand and relate to them very differently. We may unintentionally promote the resentments and rivalries that we promised ourselves we would not let happen. Our children have antennas up to observe the way we dole out our attention, compliments or criticism. It is not uncommon for a young person to carry a hurt or injustice for many years to come. Because much of the time our children are watching to see if we compare them unfairly or treat them differently, it is important to make a definitive statement to them about how we will approach important family issues. It probably will be helpful for Kate to take herself out of the fray and to consider any biases she still maintains, so she doesnt unintentionally perpetuate family frictions. Kate probably should acknowledge to Jim, Sarah and Matt that she was well intended, but had overstepped her bounds. She should emphasize that all three are very important to her and that she feels terrible that they are in such a bind. If they come to her with their concerns, she will be an impartial listener, but will not in any way pick one over the other. She should communicate caring and support, but state in a clear, emphatic message that she is counting on them to come up with solutions on their own. Linda Lipshutz, M.

PET TALESHair off the dog 11 ways to cope with shedding BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationIts October, and that means you are probably in the middle of fall the season of flurries and furricanes as doublecoated dogs shed their summer coats so their winter coats can come in thick and heavy. Even if you dont live in Alaska or Maine, your Alaskan malamute, Bernese mountain dog, Great Pyrenees, Norwegian elkhound or pretty much any dog with a thick, furry coat will go through this seasonal shedding process, making your life furrier in the process. And dont think you are home-free if you have a short-haired dog. Labrador retrievers, beagles, pugs and puggles are also among the dogs who shed like nervous Chihuahuas this time of year. Seasonal shedding, known to the dognoscenti as blowing coat, usually begins in September and completes its mission to layer your home, clothes and belongings in fur by November just in time for the holidays. (Maybe you can collect it to weave scarves and socks for loved ones?) People new to double-coated dogs are sometimes stunned by the amount of hair that comes off their pets. Ankle-deep in dustpuppies, they call their veterinarians, wondering if their dog has a skin disease.Nope, its normal. The good news is that it doesnt last forever (it just seems that way). The better news? You can take steps to help relieve your dog of fur faster. The following tips can help you get through it, sense of humor and sanity intact. Brush daily to remove dead hair. Brush outdoors to keep hair in your home to a minimum. Invest in fur-removal tools: wire slicker brushes, undercoat rakes, shedding blades, Furminators, hound gloves and Zoom Grooms are just a few of the options available. Go easy. With tools such as Furminators, you can become so enthusiastic at the amount of hair thats coming out that the next thing you know, your dog is bald. Dont go there. Go to the experts. If you purchased your dog from a breeder, ask about the best grooming tools to use on your dog. For instance, hound gloves, grooming mitts and Zoom Grooms work best on shorthaired dogs. A professional groomer can also give good advice (and take much of the labor off your hands). For dogs with big, thick coats, pro groomer Julie Ellingson of Sacramento, California, uses a slicker, comb, deshedding shampoo and conditioner, silicone brushing spray, a Mighty Wind high-velocity dryer and a liberal yet scientific application of elbow grease. Draw a warm bath for your dog. That helps to release loose coat. A warm bath every two weeks for her collies encourages dead hair to let go, says Rosemary George of Virginia. Follow the bath with conditioner, and then blow-dry, brushing your dog thoroughly to remove loosened hair and undercoat. For best results, be sure your dog is dry all the way down to the skin. Between baths and brushings, pull out your trusty lint roller and go over your dog with it to remove small amounts of loose hair. Buy a good vacuum cleaner, one that wont balk at sucking up all that fur. Better, choose one with an attachment, such as an upholstery tool, that allows you to vacuum your dog. If they are introduced to it at a young age and arent fearful of the loud noise, many dogs enjoy the feel of being vacuumed. Introduce him to the experience sl owly so he doesnt feel as if hes being attacked. Ask your veterinarian about fatty acid supplements. They may help to reduce the volume of shedding. De-fur furniture and carpets with a rubber dishwashing glove, hound glove or squeegee. You can find pet hair lifters, lint removers or similar items online or at pet supply stores. Most important, relax. Every fashionista knows dog hair is a neutral. When the fur flies, there are a number of ways to keep it under control.

It is when certain assets increase in value rapidly to the point they are priced way beyond their historical or intrinsic values and then the value crashes. Bubbles have been occurring for hundreds of years, starting with tulip prices in the 1600s and the South Sea Company in the 1700s. More recent examples include dot-com stocks, real estate prices and crypto-currencies. But last week the financial world witnessed one of the oddest bubbles in its history with the explosive rise and fall in marijuana stocks. One stock in particular, Tilray Inc., became the poster child for this volatile sector. What caused the massive price movements in pot stocks and what does the future hold for this industry? Tilray is a Canadian-based marijuana company founded in 2013. The company not only grows specific varieties of the plant desired by its customers, but it extracts various substances from it and packages the products in various forms. Tilray exports cannabis to clients in 10 countries in Europe, Latin America, Australia and Canada. The companys customers are primarily in the medical field and they provide both extracts and dried marijuana. The bubble in weed-related stocks started to inflate this past summer when Canada passed the Cannabis Act, legalizing recreational marijuana for the country starting in October. Investors clamored for the few publicly traded stocks in this sector, anticipating huge demand for marijuana once the drug became legal. Then, in the beginning of August, the bubble grew when the global beer and liquor company Constellation Brands announced that it would start to develop cannabisinfused beverages in Canada and invested $190 million in Canopy Growth Corp., the largest publicly traded marijuana company in the world. And around the same time, the beer company Molson Coors Brewing formed a joint venture with Hydropothecary Corp. to develop similar beverages. But what really put cannabis on investors radar was the announcement by Coca-Cola that it, too, was exploring the production of marijuana-infused beverages and was teaming up with Auroa Cannabis Inc. Suddenly, investors and analysts started to speculate that pot products could turn into a multi-billion dollar revenue product with global sales potential. Any company that was in this sector could be a takeover candidate or could see its sales grow exponentially as more countries legalized pot and both people and governments became more accepting of the plant. Stock prices of marijuana companies started to skyrocket. The cannabis bubble started to show signs of getting out of hand last week with Tilray. Already, the stock had increased from around $24 a share in the beginning of August to $150 a share a month later. But then the CEO of the company gave an interview on CNBC where he simply stated that he believed that pharmaceutical companies would partner with marijuana producers as patients gave up opioids and switched to pot to help them with their pain symptoms. On that news alone, the stock jumped up by 90 percent in a few minutes, giving the company a market capitalization of over $28 billion, larger than more than half of the companies in the S&P500. Then the stock started to plunge as profit-takers and day traders started to sell the stock. The stock dropped all its gains and then actually went negative for the day. Then traders started to buy the stock again and it shot up once more, ending the day up 38 percent. The stock was so volatile that it was actually halted five times during the trading day by NASDAQ for extreme price movements. Over 30 million shares of stock were traded that day even though there are only 21 million shares of Tilray outstanding. There are many reasons why Tilrays stock was so volatile, including a short squeeze, momentum trading by investors and low liquidity. I think most investors would agree that there is no rational reason why a small Canadian agricultural company that is losing money and is without a proven product should be worth more than a majority of the largest corporations in the United States. Anyone buying any of these cannabis companies should do so with extreme caution. I would recommend staying away from them until there is more certainty regarding the future of both recreational and medical uses of cannabis. And even if an investor does believe that marijuana has a bright future, I believe this asset bubble will pop and there will be a better time to buy these companies.

Email us at, and well send you some tips to start investing. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. The Beauty of Roth IRAs and 401(k)sWhen saving for retirement, you can choose between traditional and Roth IRAs; your employer may even offer both traditional and Roth 401(k)s. You might consider the Roth options for their potentially massive tax breaks. Like other IRAs and 401(k)s, Roth varieties let you accumulate money for retirement and enjoy some tax advantages at the same time. While traditional IRAs and 401(k)s are tax-deferred, permitting you to contribute pre-tax dollars, Roth accounts are designed to be tax-exempt and accept only already-taxed dollars. Imagine that beginning at age 40, you invest $5,000 of your post-tax income into a Roth IRA each year, and earn an 8 percent annual return for 25 years until you retire at 65. Your account would then contain almost $400,000 which you could withdraw in retirement tax-free. If those investments had been made in a regular IRA, youd owe taxes on any withdrawals, paying around $48,000 or so, assuming a 12 percent tax bracket during retirement, or $96,000 if youre in a 24 percent bracket. So far, this makes a great case for the Roth. But remember that if the $5,000 had gone directly into a traditional IRA, you would have reaped about $1,200 in tax savings each year at a 24 percent tax rate (more, with a higher tax rate). If that sum were also invested, the total difference between the Roth and the regular IRA would become slimmer. Still, the Roth is a compelling proposition for many investors.You may be able to roll over, or convert, your traditional IRA into a Roth by paying taxes on it you can generally roll over a 401(k) account into a traditional or Roth IRA when you change jobs, too. The 2018 contribution limit for both Roth and traditional IRAs is $5,500 ($6,500 for those 50 and older). For 401(k)s, its $18,500 ($24,500 if 50 or older).

For clear and concise retirement advice, along with stock and fund recommendations, try our Rule Your Retirement service at Straightening Out an InvestmentOne of my dumbest investments was buying shares of Align Technology, the maker of Invisalign clear dental aligners and other products and then selling the shares too soon. I bought more than a decade ago, when the shares were trading for around $7, and held for a few months. After talking to several dentists (including one who was a close friend), I decided to sell when the shares were trading for about $8, moving that money into another dental-related investment that went nowhere. The first dentist to recommend selling the stock was also the one who introduced me to Align, as he had a video ad playing nonstop on a TV in his waiting room. R., onlineThe Fool Responds: Ouch. As youve probably noticed, those shares that once traded for $7 have recently been priced above $365 per share. If youd bought $3,000 worth of shares, they would be worth more than $156,000. No one makes all the right investment moves, though our regrettable ones do sting.Align Technology has posted many quarters worth of record sales, and theres still plenty of room for further growth, from international opportunities and from the companys potential to treat more severe kinds of teeth misalignment. You might jump back in if you believe in its future growth but, of course, do your own research first. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Align Technology.) Made-to-Order GrowthMcDonalds (NYSE: MCD) is much more than a burger chain. Its all-day breakfast menu has threatened pancakeslinging chains, and the company is moving aggressively into the future with kiosk ordering, a revamped value menu, a delivery partnership with Uber and renovated stores; all suggest the companys recent growth may continue. CEO Steve Easterbrook has unlocked more profits by refranchising restaurants in China and elsewhere around the globe, and the stock has soared since he took over in 2015, with shares up 73 percent over the last three years. Refranchising has pushed the percentage of company-owned locations down to 8 percent from 19 percent at the end of 2015, reducing reported revenue but raising profit margins.While many of its peers have complained about a restaurant recession, McDonalds has posted consistently strong comparable sales growth, outpacing its rivals. Customer traffic has been growing, too. The fast-food giant is no slouch in the dividend department, either, having raised its payout annually since 1976. Recently, it yielded 2.5 percent. McDonalds has demonstrated that it can respond to shifting consumer tastes while maintaining and even boosting its profitability, earnings and direct shareholder returns. For a combination of growth, income, and security, give the Golden Arches some consideration. Splits, Sales and TaxesQA stock I own split 3-for-1. How do I figure my taxable gain when I sell the shares? L.L., Syracuse, New YorkAImagine that you bought 100 shares for $24 (initial cost: $2,400) and they were trading at $30 before the split, for a total value of $3,000. The split gives you three shares for each one you own, so post-split, youll own 300 shares, worth a third as much ($10 each), for a total of ... $3,000. Not much has really changed. For tax purposes, the cost basis of your purchase, which was $24 per share pre-split, is now a third of what it was: $8. But if you sell, your capital gain will be the same as it was pre-split. For example, selling now, your gain would be around $600 your $3,000 in sale proceeds (less your brokerage commission cost) minus your $2,400 purchase price (plus your commission cost). When a stock is split, dividends per share, earnings per share and other figures based on share count all get adjusted accordingly. ***QIs buy and hold the best way to invest? H.M., onlineAWe prefer to think of it as buying to hold, because while you might aim to hang on forever, you should keep up with your holdings regularly hanging on as long as they remain healthy and growing, or selling if their prospects change. Many investors have gotten rich holding shares of great companies for decades, through ups and downs, but you should never just buy a stock and then blindly hold it for years. Superinvestor Warren Buffett has said that his favorite time to sell is never but that doesnt mean he hasnt sold stocks. Want more information about stocks?

A26 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY At the smaller but fast-growing Punta Gorda Airport, the Las Vegas-based low-cost carrier Allegiant has a growing number of Airbus A320s to shuttle passengers to five new cities from the Midwest to the Northeast. Heres a complete list of all the new destinations at three travel hubs across the region. Happy travels. Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW)Frontier, American, Southwest, Spirit and Sun Country have all announced new flights in total to 14 cities for the fall and winter season out of Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers. These are brand new cities that have not been operated before, said RSW spokesperson Victoria Moreland. I think it shows that they see Fort Myers as one of their focus cities, that people want to come here as a destination. And vice versa. They have a lot of airplanes, theyre putting them in places they feel they can do well both inbound and outbound, she said. Earlier this year, in May, Eurowings started offering service to Germany. The regional RSW airport served more than 8.8 million passengers last year with some 370 flights per day during the height of season, from major legacy carriers such as American Airlines to low-cost carriers Frontier and Spirit. In the slowest parts of the summer offseason about 150 flights come and go each day. Along with dozens of seasonal flights that resume service starting in November, here are the new flights announced for this season, all nonstop destinations: American Airlines: Miami (MIA): double daily starting Dec. 19 Frontier: Las Vegas, Nev. (LAS): weekly, starting Nov. 17 Phoenix, Ariz.

(ALB): beginning Dec. 13 (year-round) Nashville, Tenn. (BNA): began in June (year-round) The new seasonal routes will operate twice weekly and the year-round routes will operate three times a week. The most current flight days, times and fares can be searched on Were pleased with our partnership with Allegiant and the positive impacts it has spurred, said James W. Parish, CEO of Punta Gorda Airport. Allegiant has consistently grown its commercial flight offerings, invested in a fleet of quieter, more efficient planes based here (Airbus A320s), and improved the airports infrastructure for commercial jet fueling. Not only do their flights bring in new visitors that spend millions of tourism dollars in the region, Allegiant offers our local residents about 40 destinations to visit via low-cost, nonstop air service. The new routes this season are expected to bring more than 56,000 visitors, Allegiant says. PGD served close to 1.3 million passengers last year. Allegiants partnership continues to encourage tourism expenditures and grow our local economy through new community investments, jobs and improvements at PGD, said Charlotte County Airport Authority Commissioner Kathleen Coppola. Palm Beach International Airport (PBI)Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines is launching new, nonstop seasonal service starting Nov. 15 and running through April to five cities from Palm Beach International in West Palm Beach: Cleveland, Ohio (CLE): Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday Columbus, Ohio (CMH): Monday/ Friday Pittsburgh, Pa. (PIT): Wednesday/ Saturday Raleigh-Durham, N.C. (RDU): Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday St. Louis, Mo. (STL): Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday PBI reports that Frontier will continue nonstop service this season to Islip (ISP), Trenton (TNN), Philadelphia (PHL) and through service to Denver (DEN). PBI provided service to nearly 6.5 million passengers over the last year. Our partnership with Frontier Airlines is growing and we are excited for what this means for our passengers, said Palm Beach County director of airports Bruce Pelly. Our goal is to provide easy and convenient travel to and from Southeast Florida and the fall/winter schedule is looking positive, with nonstop service to 30 markets and over 100 departures daily.

B6 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bay residents love the communitys amenities Tower 2 now under construction A clubhouse should be the social and recreational centerpiece of a community, and at Kalea Bay, the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, that couldnt be more true. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular main amenity area, which includes our community clubhouse. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adultsonly pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a fitness center, a snack bar, a lakeside fire pit, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Lodge. The indoor/outdoor restaurant serves incredible meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts. Guest suites that can accommodate overnight guests and family members are also located nearby. Residents also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse and takes them to the beach. Two of the top-rated beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Lodge. They include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and DelnorWiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. The completion of the main amenity area at Kalea Bay coincided with the completion the communitys first residential tower, which is sold out. Thats why in May construction began on the communitys second tower, said Lodge. As of mid-September, 65 of the towers 120 residences were sold. That represents a sales volume of $138 million. Like its predecessor, Tower 200 is also 22-stories, specifically, 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5 are 4-bedroom/4.5 bath plans with 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans with 3,919 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate 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.For more information regarding Kalea Bay, visit the onsite sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile north of Wiggins Pass Road.

LONGEST TRACK RECORD OF FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY SUCCESS IN COLLIER COUNTYFinding gold amid the shades of grayWhile most everyone I know is on a constant quest to turn back the hands of time, I am on a mission to go gray. I want gray hair and not gloomy, drab gray hair I want long, striking, silver tresses. It should be easy, right? As one ages, ones hair naturally turns gray. Im ready to embrace that stage of life. No more hair coloring appointments every six weeks and no more fretting about my roots. There has to be a freedom in letting go and letting gray be gray. Unfortunately, its not that easy. Not all gray hair is created equal, and mine is a hot mess. The hair around my temples is as white as snow, up top and in the front there are a few lackluster gray hairs mixed with brown, while the back is completely brown. My friend Lydia, who is around 10 years younger than me, has long thick dark hair with what she calls tinsel sprinkled liberally throughout. I covet her mane. The sparkly silver hairs almost look like carefully placed highlights and they complement her big blue eyes and her youthful freckles. I recently ran into my friend Sue, who I hadnt seen in a while (shes 50-something and used to be a brunette) and she was sporting a flattering pixie cut that looked platinum. You went blonde! I said. Nope, she said, I just let my white grow in. It looked shiny and healthy and glamorous and it just grew out of her head like that! My friend Lyndseys hair is lily white shes tall with a beautiful smile and she wears happy, bright colors all the time when she walks into a room, heads turn. I recently saw a picture on Facebook of a friend I went to high school with she looked as pretty as she did in ninth grade with her upturned nose, slightly crooked teeth, and brown skin but her hair was now long, salt-and-pepper dreadlocks and she looked fabulous. I love this renaissance of not just accepting our silver, our gray and our white but embracing it, flaunting it and not covering it with chemicals and foils. Actresses like Jamie Lee Curtis and Helen Mirren look both sexy and powerful with their silver hair. And white-haired models like Carmen DellOrefice and Gillean McLeod rock runways in New York and Milan. Times have changed. It used to be that when men went gray, they looked distinguished while gray-haired women were compared to crones. But now, even hipster young girls in their 20s have taken to dying their hair gray. Gray is the new blonde and well happily take 50 shades of it. But not all of us are so fortunate to go gray gracefully. My fathers thick head of hair went completely white when he was in his 30s, but that gene passed me by and Im left with a sort of calico conundrum sprouting from my scalp. The answer is more bleach until the rest of my head gets on board with my temples and until then, Ill continue to compliment my beautiful tinselhaired friends every time I see them because I love how they smile when I say, You make gray look gorgeous. stephanieDAVIS

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Woodwork thewoodworkmusic.comThe Woodwork, a four-piece Naplesbased band, describes its group this way on its website: woods, metals, skins, bones, voices. Thats kind of a visual reference to all the wooden instruments (and elements that go into our band), says Taylor Freydberg, who plays guitar and sings. The bands name, he says, is a kind of appreciation for the phrase, out of the woodwork, substance appearing out of thin air. We liked the idea of tying that into music creation, how a song or melody comes out of nowhere. In addition to Mr. Freydberg, the group consists of Christina Ortega (vocals), Mayo Coates (drums) and Julio Pintos (upright bass). The group has a Squirrel Nut Zippers vibe to it, singing swinging jazz songs. Mr. Freydberg describes their sound as folk/jazz/indie, the three genres we play around with. Weve been touching on gypsy swing, he says. We fell into that. Christina brought that vibe. She comes from more of a jazz vibe, whereas my background is more folk and fingerpicking. They try to incorporate as much of their own music as they can into their shows, but in the music scene in Southwest Florida, bands have to have three 45-minute sets worth of music, he explains. So they include covers of bands such as Devil Makes Three, Wildbelle and Brown Bird, as well as musicians such as Valerie June. Mr. Freydberg met Ms. Ortega at a local musician and artist mixer called Live Art, in Naples. They started meeting weekly and playing music together, and their relationship also became romantic. Mr. Coates, the drummer, was the original drummer for the Wholetones, a group Mr. Freydberg used to play with. He joined the group, along with Mr. Pintos, who is Mr. Freydbergs stepfather. He calls him one of the few upright bass players in Naples, explaining that in our music scene, the majority play electric. Mr. Freydberg will write a melody and Ms. Ortega will write the lyrics, or vice versa. And more recently, shes been singing a couple of songs in Spanish, too. Lately weve been trying new things, to make it more interesting, he says. The group still performs North, one of his songs from his Wholetones days. He wrote both the lyrics and melody. It was written about leaving Florida, touching on escapism, he says. Its not a bad place to be. It could be worse. Its a good place to build something. We have a lot of support down here and have built a lot of relationships. Our end goal is to travel and get out more, and play St. Pete and Tampa.>> Beginning Nov. 1, The Woodwork will play from 6:30-9:30 p.m. every Tuesday night at the Bone Hook Brewing Company on Marco Island and from 7-10 p.m. at SoHo in downtown Fort Myers during every monthly Music Walk. That band will host a concert at 7 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Norris Center in Naples, with Kyle Anne, Mountain Holler and the West King String Band, a four-piece band out of Asheville, NC. The event will include two food trucks and an art show.Mike Imbascianimikeimbasciani.comMike Imbasciani, of Port Charlotte, speaks through his electric guitar. On the cusp of turning 22, hes no longer young enough to be called a child prodigy as he was for a while, but he still plays guitar with a skill and dexterity far beyond his years. He started playing guitar when he was 5. I wanted to play the drums, he explains, but my mom said that wasnt a real instrument. She said I could either play the piano or guitar. So Mr. Imbasciani chose the guitar. He did get a drum kit when he was 7. And he started playing harmonica and piano as well. He began playing professionally at age 11 and headed a band when he was 14, Mike Imbasciani and His BluezRockerz. Hes the only one in his family who plays music. My parents are really into music, he says. My Dad grew up listening to all the music of the Woodstock era, Hendrix, Clapton. I started with The Beatles, playing a lot of Beatles and Bob Dylan, actually. The first two songs he learned to play on the electric guitar were both Beatles songs: Eight Days a Week and A Hard Days Night. His first Dylan tune was Like a Rolling Stone. Hes not self-taught. He took lessons from four different guitar teachers as well as vocal and piano lessons. I do read music slightly, he says. Im more of a feel player. And whatever it is that allows a person to express himself through guitar strings, Mr. Imbascianis got it. Ive certainly been blessed, he says. Its a God-given talent. Im lucky to have the abilities I have and do what Ive been able to do. He has performed not just locally but at BB Kings Blues Clubs in Orlando and Nashville, the House of Blues in Orlando, Tootsies World Famous Orchid Lounge in Nashville, and the now-defunct Tobacco Road in Miami. He has also played at dozens of festivals and has opened for Boney James, Spyro Gyra and Rick Braun. His favorite guitarists, and also a good representation of what I play, are Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Brian Setzer of the Stray Cats. Those are the ones I try to emulate, he says. He loves to play Crossroads by Cream, Rock This Town by the Stray Cats and Hug You and Squeeze You and Pride and Joy by Stevie Ray Vaughan. Feel is a big aspect of (playing well), he says. Just playing a bunch of notes doesnt mean anything if you have no feel behind the music. Last year he played almost 150 shows; this year, hes already booked for 170. And hes booked for almost every Friday and Saturday in 2019. I try to bring the best show possible, he says, a high energy show, with the best music for people to always remember.>> Some upcoming dates for Mike Imbasciani and His BluezRockerz include: 8-11 p.m. at Leroys Southern KitchenBar in Punta Gorda, on Sept. 29, Oct. 18 and 27; 4 to 7 p.m. at TTs Tiki Bar in Punta Gorda on Oct. 7 and 21; and 7:30-10:30 p.m. at Berts Bar in Matlacha on Sept. 28, Oct. 12 and a Steampunk Halloween Celebration on Oct. 26.Hot Buttered Nuggetswaywardst.wixsite.comThe Hot B utter ed Nuggets is like a complete vaudeville show performed by a duo. For just two people, Cape Coral-based Douglas Everton and his wife, Ruby Collins, make a lot of sound. Ms. Collins plays the upright bass or a washtub bass an antique washtub with a nylon string hanging from a closet rod while her husband plays the banjo, a high hat cymbal, sings and mimics trumpet noises with his voice. The Washington Times once compared him to Rich Little with a brass section for his accurate mimicry, and others have said the duo sounds more like a seven-piece band. Typically, when people come up and ask him how he makes those horns sounds, hell say, Rubys a ventriloquist and Ive been lip syncing all night. Hes been producing vocal horn sounds since he was 9 or 10, listening to Dixieland music. I just started listening to the old groups from the s and s, and started emulating them, he says. Their repertoire is wide, performing songs from everyone from Louis Armstrong to Louis Prima. Sometimes, hell throw in some Elvis or Johnny Cash, or even Tom Waitts. I always liked Louis Armstrong, he says. I started working on using his voice and personality and character, to inject into my style of singing. And that evolved into Leon Redbone and Tom Waitts and even Jimmy Rogers, who was someone my grandfather used to like. When Louis Armstrong played with his Hot Five, there was so much personality going on, his whole aura, thats what really sent me, I guess. I said, I want to be like that. And then, he said, there was something about the way Louis Prima and Phil Harris talked, the slang of the day. At some point, I started talking like them instead of like the other kids, Mr. Everton says. I wanted to be different. All the other kids wanted to be like everybody else. I started thinking, I wasnt very popular with the kids in school, OK. It doesnt matter if I like this music or not. What does Hot Butter ed Nuggets play? I call it hokem jazz, he says. Tin Pan Alley. Vintage Americana. Its jazz and blues and popular music from the 0s, s and s, the great era. People dont write songs like Somewhere Over the Rainbow or Hoagy Carmichael songs like Georgia on My Mind, stuff like that. Cole Porter and George Gershwin. The prettiest song I ever heard in my life was George Gershwins Rhapsody in Blue. They also dress the part, Ms. Collins in long dresses and pearls, Mr. Everton in a straw boater and suspenders. We dress like flappers and Dapper Dan kind of thing, he says. I play in my own way. We sound like some street musicians from New Orleans, with a Hawaiian twist. People think: Leon Redbone. I try to emulate my grandfather, who sounded like Leon Redbone, before I even knew who Leon Redbone was. When I first heard Leon Redbone, I thought, That sounds like my grandpa. I buy costumes that look like Leon Redbone. The old songs, he sings them true to form. And I try to do them true to form too.>> Hot Butter ed Nuggets can be seen from 7-10 p.m. at Slates in Cape Coral on Wednesday nights, at from 7:30-10:30 p.m. every Thursday at 86 Room in downtown Fort Myers.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Canyon 336 Exceptional quality for less than you might think Come see for yourself. Boating has always been a call to adventure, exploration and discovery. When you are aboard a vessel that is as durable, seaworthy and safe, as well as comfortable, it is natural that distant ports will beckon. So, cast off for Bimini, the Bahamas, Mexico, the Tortugas, or even to a neighboring state, but be sure you understand and stay compliant with the rules and regulations for each place you visit even if just passing through. Follow every rule to the letter including those regarding possession, size and bag limits for fish.Safety firstSmart boating travel is largely a matter of planning and paying attention to common sense safety practices. Make certain that your boat is properly equipped for the voyage, that you have plenty of supplies including food and water aboard, and that you have a contingency plan for weather. Some rules of thumb: Be sure you have all required or needed safety gear and that your safety gear is in excellent working order. This should include routine inspections of your life raft and EPRIB or PLB if applicable. Make certain life jackets are serviceable and appropriately sized for all crew. Plan, plan, plan. Make a realistic, detailed float plan and dont travel alone. Solo passages are for experts and can be dangerous. In the absence of local knowledge, proceed with caution, and carry backups for navigation and charting in case your primary fails. Consider fuel stops, docking accommodations and food/water needs when planning your travel. Discover Boating has excellent, detailed tips on boating travel and safety. Additionally, many books have been written about navigation through certain areas specifically the Keys, Bahamas and Dry Tortugas. Consider talking to someone who has voyaged to your destination before for hidden tips.Boating/fishing outside of your own state watersIf you cross into and fish adjacent state waters, nonresident fishing licenses are required. The Take Me Fishing website is a great source of information on obtaining both resident and non-resident licensing across the U.S. You can also contact fish and wildlife offices directly in the states you plan to fish. Transiting through the Intracoastal Waterway or around the Great Loop is pretty straightforward, but if you decide to stop and fish along the way be sure you know the rules and regulations in the areas you intend to enjoy. And bear in mind that things can get confusing when you cross into federal waters (3 miles) due to the lack of uniformity between states. Some states allow continuous transit, but others do not; for almost everywhere that allows continuON THE WATER Tips on trips: Visiting other places on your boatous transit, fishing gear must be stowed and the burden of proof is up to the boaters. The Bahamas require a cruise permit and some research of their own including restrictions on how fish can be taken. Plan your trip and get the licensing and information before you leave your dock. Visit the Take Me Fishing ( website for information on how to get a fishing licensing in any U.S. state. Visit the Captain John (http://www. website for good information on the Intracoastal Waterway including the Great Loop.International tripsThe entire crew must have valid passports, and you must clear customs and immigration when entering foreign waters including Mexico and Canada. In the Bahamas, you will need a Bahamas cruising and fishing permit (costs are based on vessel size and trip length). On any international trip, get the latest fishing and cruising regulations in your transit areas and at your destination and follow them to the letter. This site has excellent information for any boaters planning any international trip: https://www.getmyboat. com/resources/tips-for-renters/305/ tips-for-boating-in-international-watersSo, when the distant ports beckon, research everything you can about relevant safety equipment, fishing laws and licensing laws before you cast off your home dock. Whether youre exploring the adjacent state with your family, or voyaging the Atlantic, Caribbean or Gulf with fishing buddies, stay safe and have fun.

COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS In my dream, my aunt stands alone among the poinciana trees. A canal separates us, and Uncle Bob and I want to reach her, but we cant, even as the traffic zips along U.S. 27 near Lake Okeechobee. We are here, and Aunt Cleo is there, and we are separated by an easily navigable stream that for some reason, none of us can cross. Its hopeless. And then I awaken. A half-century later, I remember that dream each time I pass those trees, which still stand in front of the Herbert Hoover Dike somewhere between South Bay and Lake Harbor, a monument to the time someone lived there, farmed there and possibly died there. I never shared the dream, not with Uncle Bob or Aunt Cleo. And after all these years, I cannot begin to interpret it Bob died shortly after, and Cleo lived another decade, long enough to fill me with stories of coming to the Glades in 1923, when she was 11 years old, then returning to teach four generations of third-graders in Pahokee. I remember being fascinated with those trees and asking Cleo what had been there before. There had been a house nestled among the trees that was demolished sometime before U.S. 27 was rerouted in the 1960s, she said. The Everglades always seems to be at odds with humans, in a battle that dates back to 19th century industrialist Hamilton Disstons projects to drain the Everglades as if that ever could happen. Each time humans interfere, the Everglades strikes back. Ninety years ago this month, the area bore witness to the 1928 hurricane, one of the deadliest natural disasters in U.S. history, as upward of 3,000 people perished in the floodwaters that breached the low earthen berms along the shore. Their eyes were watching God, according to the author Zora Neale Hurston, who wrote a book that bore those words as its title. Cleo was at college in Georgia when that storm hit. But my grandfather was in Pahokee, and remembered looking on in horror at the piles of bodies some were buried in mass graves and others burned in mammoth pyres. Not all of the victims were recovered. Many of the dead still are there, their bodies now one with the muck. Perhaps their ghosts remain, stirring the breeze and a memory or two. The poincianas were blooming the last time I zipped past, on my way from the Palm Beaches to Fort Myers and back. I thought of those who had been there before me. The branches trembled slightly in the breeze and the orange and white poinciana blossoms drifted to the emerald Earth just as the random memories flitted about my brain. A bowl of Moonlight Blue, a dream and a memory or two

The Price: $50. The Skinny: Id sworn off buying big bowls I have a veritable army of them in the kitchen and in the garage. But this one is special. Cambridge made its Everglade pattern between 1929 and 1958, when the company went out of business. These bowls are delicate the leaves stand out, placing them at easy risk of breakage. This bowl is perfect, with nary a scratch or a chip. And Cambridges pale blue color is ethereal. The company was known for its beautiful, deeply saturated colors Ive known of antiques dealers who used the term Cambridge Glass as a generic term to describe colored glass of the Depression era. Many of the pieces in this pattern bear images of tulips and buffalo that evoke other parts of the country. But these leaves of this Everglade bowl are right at home in Florida, and capture the essence of our states River of Grass. THE FIND:A Cambridge Everglade pattern bowlSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Everglade pattern bowl dates from the 1940s and was made in Ohio by the Cambridge Glass Co. Its about 12 inches in diameter.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYHow one woman became Americas sex expert: Becoming Dr. RuthDr. Ruth wants you to have good sex. And, she wants you to be sure to use contraception. Shed also probably like it if you went to see Becoming Dr. Ruth, a one-woman play at Florida Repertory Theatres ArtStage Studio Theatre. It tells her life story. The famous sex therapist, now 90 and not even thinking of retiring, attended the show opening night and, in a rollicking talkback that lasted almost as long as the show itself, gave it her seal of approval. This humorous and moving bioplay was written by playwright Mark St. Germain, who was inspired by reading Dr Ruths autobiography, All in a Lifetime. He also interviewed her. (The two are now friends.) Theater patrons may be familiar with Mr. St. Germains work from his previous Florida Rep shows: Best of Enemies, George Washingtons Teeth and Camping with Henry and Tom, which was the ArtStage Studios inaugural show. Becoming Dr. Ruth takes place in Dr. Ruths New York City Washington Heights apartment in 1997, when the sex therapist was 69. The premise is simple: its just two months after shes buried her husband, Fred Westheimer, and the doctor is packing up her apartment, planning to move to another, in midtown. As she wraps and packs her various photos and knick-knacks, she reminisces and tells her life story. Set designer Bert Scott has made the small venue feel larger than it is, presenting us with a spacious New York apartment with a wooden parquet floor. Moving boxes clutter the floor while bookcases overflow with books, memorabilia and tchotchkes. We feel as if were right in her living room with her. Wide windows with a panoramic view of New Jersey and the George Washington Bridge spanning the Hudson River transform into a projection screen to display photographs of people and events Dr. Ruth talks about throughout the show. Susan Greenhill plays Dr. Ruth in a loving portrayal, embodying her joie de vivre and her unerring determination to keep moving forward, no matter what happens in life. The actress gets that well-known German/French/Israeli/American accent right, including her warm giggle, which was once described as sounding like a gerbil in heat. And director Chris Clavelli has her making the most use of the space, taking down items from shelves, wrapping and boxing them, taking phone calls and looking for where shed last laid down the phone. (One humorous call comes from one of her movers. Mike is about to get married and worries that his penis is too small, even though his fianc has no complaints.) While many know Dr. Ruth from Sexually Speaking, her pioneering radio show from the 1980s, or her cable shows, or her more than 40 books, this play takes us back to her origins and everything that led her to that point. She seems the unlikeliest person to become such a popular sex therapist. Her thick accent which some had urged her to get rid of became part of her appeal. That, and the fact that a woman in her 50s was giving frank sex education over the airwaves. Shed answer callers sex questions, but would not provide therapy over the phone. As she says in the play, Why did they listen? I think it was this: People needed to talk about sex, and suddenly here was a little matronly woman who did. I was not threatening. And my accent helped they thought I sounded like Sigmund Freud. And I made them laugh. A lesson learned with humor is a lesson remembered. I had gone from being a professor to a celebrity overnight. I was famous and I loved it! Who wouldnt? And at 50, I was no starlet with only 15 minutes of attention. But there is much the public doesnt know about her. In the play, she talks about becoming an orphan at age 10. She was born in Germany; when she was 10, her parents sent her to Switzerland on the kindertrain. Her remaining family was soon sent to a concentration camp and she never saw them again. As an adult, she created a family of her own (two children and four grandchildren) and tellingly, collects dollhouses. The little furniture, the little families stay exactly where I put them, she says. They never leave. They are as happy as I want them to be. In the first 10 years of my life I had a family who loved me. That is so important. Because of that l ove, I survived being an orphan. With my dollhouses I have control I never had in my world. Becoming Dr. Ruth contains a rainbow of emotions, and Ms. Greenhill has perfect pitch for every hue. She never gets too maudlin but doesnt shy away from disturbing facts either. Skillfully, she allows us to see the vulnerability and the hurt behind the upbeat personality. She also nails Dr. Ruths humor, especially when shes explaining how she met and wooed her late husband, or re-enacting her first time on the radio, doing her program Sexually Speaking. Were also given plenty of Dr. Ruthisms throughout the play, such as: Skiers are good lovers because they dont sit on the couch, they take a risk and wiggle their behinds. Becoming Dr. Ruth is one of those theatrical moments where everything comes together and works in harmony: playwright, subject matter, director, actor. Its serious, its moving, its humorous, and, just like great sex, thoroughly satisfying. Becoming Dr. Ruth>> When: through Oct. 21 >> Where: ArtStage Studio Theatre at Florida Repertory Theatre, at the historic Arcade Theater on Bay Street between Jackson and Hendry >> Cost: $55 and $49 >> Info: 332-4488 or Becoming Dr. Ruth at the Florida Repertory Theatre stars Susan Greenhill as the famous sex therapist.WESTHEIMER

Take this case where South was in three notrump, got a heart lead and correctly played the queen from dummy. The purpose of the queen play was twofold: If West had the ace, the queen would win, and the K-8 would constitute a stopper if West later gained the lead; if East had the ace, he would win the trick, but then South could duck the heart return, holding up the king until the third round. This would serve to neutralize Wests remaining hearts if he started with five of them. When the queen held, South cashed the A-K-Q of spades, hoping the opposing spades were divided 3-3 or that West had four of them. In either case, South would then be sure of the contract. But East showed up with four spades, and declarer went down one after East won the fourth spade and returned the heart jack through Souths king.Actually, the problem of avoiding the dangerous opponent, East, could have been solved in an entirely different way. After winning the first heart with the queen, all South had to do was to lead a low spade from dummy and finesse the eight.This would have lost to the ten, but West would then have been stymied. Nothing he could do would stop declarer from scoring nine tricks consisting of four spades, a heart, a diamond and three clubs. Finessing the spade eight after East played low was sure to bring the contract home if the spades were divided 3-3 or 4-2, and therefore offered a much greater chance of succeeding than simply cashing the A-K-Q in hopes of a 3-3 split.

FILM CAPSULES BY DAN HUDAKA Simple Favor (Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, Henry Golding) After her new best friend Emily (Lively) disappears, Stephanie (Kendrick) searches for her and is shocked at what she finds. Its an intriguing crime drama from start to finish, with game and ready performances from Kendrick and Lively. Rated R.The Little Stranger (Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter) In the 1948 English countryside, strange things start to happen after a doctor (Gleeson) is called to a home in which his mother used to work as a maid. It has an appropriately creepy setting, yet it all strikes as hollow and unsatisfying, a failure of execution after the proper mood is established. Rated R.Papillon (Charlie Hunnam, Rami Malek, Eve Hewson) A man (Hunnam) imprisoned for a crime he didnt commit protects, and plans an escape with, a weakling counterfeiter (Malek). Poorly structured and lacking logic, its a remake of the 1973 classic that shouldnt have been remade. Rated R. Alpha (Kodi Smit-McPhee, Natassia Malthe, Leonor Varela) Believed dead by his tribe while on a hunting expedition, teenage Keda (Smit-McPhee) forms a symbiotic bond with a wolf dog. The exposition drags, and though there are some impressive visual sequences, the story is never engaging enough to overcome the sluggish start. Rated PG-13. BlacKkKlansman (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.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.

Lee McCarthy, President DESTINATIONS: Mediterranean | Africa | Caribbean | Hawaii | Europe | South America SPECIALTIES: Luxury | Safari | Individual & Escorted Tours | Small Ship Cruises | River Cruising LATEST FILMSLizzieIs it worth $10? NoThe mythology surrounding Lizzie Bordens alleged murder of her father and stepmother has become the stuff of legend, to the point that her name is often associated with the most gruesome murders ever recorded. Given how ripe Lizzies story is with sensationalism, scandal and money, its a surprise its taken this long to become the subject of a feature film. It shouldve taken a little longer. Director Craig William Macneills Lizzie is a tedious bore, with only a few moments of titillation to relieve the monotony. Sure, the pace of life was slow in Fall River, Mass., in 1892, but that doesnt mean the pace of the film needs to be the same. Its as if the script wants to be more of a character study than a crime drama, and the characters just arent that interesting. The Bordens are the wealthiest family in their small town. Patriarch Andrew (Jamey Sheridan) is a successful businessman, but his daughters, Lizzie (Chloe Sevigny) and Emma (Kim Dickens), are frustrated by his frugality and controlling ways. Their stepmother, Abby (Fiona Shaw), capitulates to Andrews wishes, leading to resentment from the daughters, especially Lizzie. The only other person living in the house is Bridget Maggie Sullivan, a housekeeper whos pretty because shes played by Kristen Stewart. Bryce Kass screenplay brings a lesbian and feminist spin to the murders, which is okay given that the movie doesnt purport to depict reality (as suggested by the fact that the script was not adapted from a previously published source). The problem is that Kass doesnt spice up his historical fiction to make it more entertaining. The murder scene is memorable for a number of reasons, yet the rest of the film including a fully clothed sex scene between Lizzie and Maggie is as lame as could be. Surely its not easy to take a story from 1892 and make it relevant to the headlines of 2018, but that appears to be the intention here. This is about oppressed women revolting against their handlers in an oppressive society. By empowering Lizzie and Maggie, Macneill believes well cheer for them as well and we do, but that line stops at a double axe-murder. Viewers end up rooting for characters who prove unworthy of sympathy, and that makes it a hard watch. Sevigny is solid in the title role, but Stewart reverts back to the pained angst she used in the often-unwatchable Twilight movies. Aside from an Irish accent, she shows none of the acting chops she demonstrated in Clouds of Sils Maria and other recent films. There are certainly some gutsy moments in Lizzie that couldnt have been easy to shoot, but the character doesnt extend or push Stewart in a notable way. At some point a filmmaker will figure out how to handle the complicated character that is Lizzie Borden, and when that happens its possible a good movie will be made about her life. Lizzie, sadly, is not it. dan >> Lizzie was shot in 23 days on location in Savannah, Ga. 239.352.5554 la-piel.comLocated at Exit 107, off I-75 6370 Pine Ridge Road, Suite 101 Naples, Florida 34119MANUEL PEA, M.D. Naples First MedispaSpend $99 on a Obagi Radiance chemical peel and receive $99 in FREE Obagi products Desserts and champagneOct. 25 from 11a-4pPeel & Reveal EventRSVP BY MONDAY, OCT. 22 TO 5 5 6 6 Cannot be combined with gift card promotion In honor of Obagis 30th anniversary, a representative will be available to answer questions, perform skin evaluations and giving out free product when you sign up for Obagi Premier Points.One lucky winner will receive a Suzan Obagi basket.

For example, in a home where 14-year-old Mary Leah Sandlin died in 1909 after she caught fire while ironing clothes, residents have reported finding their irons inexplicably unplugged or hidden away from where they left them. (And, yes, this would be an appropriate time to cue the theme from The Twilight Zone.) Ms. Alexanders latest addition to her oeuvre is primed just in time for October, that month traditionally devoted to spooks and spells. She calls it A Victorian Sance, but its as much about history as it is about hauntings. I had the privilege of attending the inaugural event earlier this month, which was held at the Price House in Punta Gordas History Park. In many ways, it was an experiment, and Ms. Alexander has since tweaked the agenda based on that nights experiences. The latest literature describes the even this way: During this two-hour time travel adventure, youll learn about life in the Victorian era. The Victorian era was inspired by ingenuity and invention. It was an epoch of hope and possibilities, of adventure and romance, of exploration and discovery. The Steampunk movement is a celebration of Victorian ideals and imagination. Whether youre a believer like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle or a skeptic like Harry Houdini, youll enjoy: A lively presentation about the zeitgeist of the Victorian age, the rise of spiritualism, and how these factors converged to influence the new town of Punta Gorda. An introduction to standard supernatural communication tools like the talking board, pendulum, dowsing rods, paranormal investigation tools, etc. A Victorian sance re-enactment. Participants can come dressed in regular attire or in the garb of the Victorian period or as their favorite Steampunk character. A Victorian Sance is just the latest in a series of events offered by Ms. Alexanders company. When she purchased Southwest Florida Food Tours at the tail end of 2017, she had another job at the time. That made it difficult to conduct the tasting tours of different Punta Gorda restaurants, which had been scheduled during the day since the business was founded in 2015.I decided to change the name to Walking Tours so its not just food, Ms. Alexander said. Haunted tours and ghost tours are very popular in a lot of cities, so I decided to do a Haunted History Walking Tour that I could do in the evening.It turned out to be just what the witch doctor ordered and remains Southwest Florida Walking Tours most popular event. We start at the free parking garage on Herald Court, Ms. Alexander explained, and then walk all the way out to History Park, then meander through the old historic neighborhood up to Retta Esplanade, then back to the parking garage. Well stop in front of the houses that have a reputation for being haunted. Ill tell stories about some of the places we cant go to because theyre too far. As it is, the two-hour tour covers a distance of about 2 miles. It has become in-demand enough that shes adding other tours: 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesdays is the Food Tour. 5-8 p.m. Thursdays is the Haunted Punta Gorda Pub Tour, which is similar to the Food Tour, but with added stories about murders and tragic deaths. Food will be available at every stop, and patrons can purchase alcohol on their own at the various venues. Saturdays will be dedicated to a Garden Tour, a 2-mile, two-hour trek with a master gardener who will point out the various floras around the History Park. Ms. Alexander might add the Haunted History Tour should it be expedient. It was the Haunted History Tour that ultimately led to what would become A Victorian Sance.Eerie education Ive been doing a lot of research about Punta Gorda for the purpose of my walking tours. In several books, I encountered statements about Perry and Marian McAdow (Perry was one of Punta Gordas founders) engaging in sances and that they were strong believers in spiritualism. So I started researching spiritualism, and learned that it was a gigantic movement in the United States at that time. So this is kind of a way to disguise a history lesson with a provocative title. Its talking about the Victorian era and Punta Gorda through sort of a unique context using spiritualism. Gone from the original evening is an experiment in which participants tried to tap into otherworldly phenomena using a Ouija board, which did not go as planned. I really thought that the Ouija board experiments were going to be a lot more exciting and fun, Ms. Alexander said, so I decided I needed to change that up anyway. Instead of the Ouija board experiments, Ill have an introduction to standard supernatural communication SEANCESFrom page 1Astariahh, Evie Alexander and Penelope on a break before a sance. Participants of A Victorian Sance experiment with a Ouija board.


tools, like the talking boards, tea leaves, crystal balls, dousing rods, paranormal investigation tools, etc. „ all the different modalities of supernatural communication.Ž Another glitch was her discovering that the county has ordinances regarding practitioners of fortunetelling, although that clearly was not a part of the program. Im a skeptic anyway,Ž Ms. Alexander confessed, so I dont want to give the impression were doing anything like fortunetelling.Ž That being said, her personal definition of fortunetelling is a broad one. At the very basic element, we can talk about the Farmers Almanac, or when you open a newspaper and it tells you that sunrise on Thursday is going to be at 7:28 a.m., or high tide at 3:15 p.m. That is divining the future based on naturally occurring phenomena. Sayings like Red tide at night, sailors delight are divining the future based on natures clockwork. You see birds migrating or bears hibernating or salmon swimming upstream or Groundhog Day. All of those are signs; those are ways of predicting the future based on animals. So thats the very lowest level. Then it goes a pendulum or a Ouija board. Thats used with earthbound ghosts.Ž For this, she gives the example of Patrick Swayzes char acter in the 1990 film Ghost.Ž Sometimes people dont know they died,Ž Ms. Alexander explained, especially if its very sudden, like a gunshot to the head. They didnt even see the bullet come. They may not know theyre dead.Ž In Ghost,Ž theres a scene where Patrick Swayze, who has been murdered but whose spirit walks the Earth, encounters another ghost who can move things in the physical world. Swayze asks the ghost how he does it, and the ghost teaches him „ but it takes practice. Thats why, at first, using the Ouija board might be a little bit slow, because the ghost is also having to learn how to do that,Ž Ms. Alexander said. Then, at the very top, is the mother of all supernatural communication, which is the sance. Thats where a psychic is actually communicating with the spirit. Most of us dont have that ability, but we have a lot of other abilities up the ladder.ŽLittle boy lostThe highlight of the evening is, of course, the re-enactment of the sance itself, conducted by mother and daughter mediumsŽ calling themselves Penelope and Astariahh. (These were not their real names. I know who they are, but Im not about to spoil the magic. Besides, theyre mediums, for pitys sake, with connections to the spirit world. I dont feature the prospect of getting hexedŽ for spilling the beans.) They came dressed pretty much as you would expect mediums to dress „ mom in a white blouse and brightly colored skirt, daughter in a black gown and black head covering, looking more the part. At the inaugural event, it was no reenactment. These folks were trying to conjure „ or, at least communicate with „ the dead. At first, the sance seemed fairly benign and uneventful „ that is until one of the participants (who was, ironically, one of the biggest skeptics in the group) started feeling the presence of a young boy in the room. She followed it with distinct impressions that his name was Bobby, and he was 9 years old. He was also sickŽ and afraid.Ž The experience was as eerie as it was unexpected. But thats the way the supernatural ball bounces. But for the October events, Were going to call it a re-enactment of a Victorian sance,Ž Ms. Alexander said. Penelope is going to do more explaining about how to open the circle, how it would proceed, how you closed the circle at the end.Ž And despite the supernatural goingson surrounding the event, its really not about that, at heart. Its more, for me, about the history, about making history alive.Ž And come alive it does. I learned last year that they just like walking around Punta Gorda after dark,Ž Ms. Alexander said. And because youre in a group, you feel safe „ although Punta Gordas pretty safe anyway. A lot of people dont even care about the haunted history, just taking a walk after hours.Ž But have the phone number handy for Ghostbusters, just in case.

BEHIND THE WHEELMore confidence with the new Hyundai Santa FeHyundai has developed an impressive knack for over-delivering its mainstream offerings. So when a bread-nbutter crossover like the Santa Fe gets redesigned, its time to take notice. The new 2019 vehicle is a sharp contrast to its predecessor. The old one went out of its way to look like a sleek crossover. It sold well with the public, but some feedback seemed to make minivan comparisons. So there was a conscious effort to be as macho with the new styling as possible. This Santa Fe has extra creases in the hood, a style line that runs the full profile and double-folded fender flares. They purposely created a more chiseled and maturely defined look sort of like Harrison Ford with wheels. Hyundais designer even went out of his way to point out how much the Santa Fe is not a crossover, and instead, a true SUV. It isnt. Thats not necessarily a bad thing. SUVs are meant for those whose cargo requirements are as great as the demand to carry people. Crossovers clearly make passengers the sole top priority. The Santa Fe understands this role quite well. Its a people carrier, and Hyundai is looking out for families. Safe Exit Assist is standard on every 2019 Santa Fe. Its a new child safety lock system that utilizes the blind spot radar to detect when a car is approaching on the drivers side. If danger is detected, the passenger door behind the driver is not allowed to open, even if the manual child lock is disengaged. This seems like a feature with a narrow use, but any of the few who experience it will likely be eternally grateful. Besides extra safety, Hyundai is continuing the tradition of offering good value for money. Starting at $26,480, the standard features include blind spot detection, cross-traffic alert, power drivers seat and a power lift gate. The dashboard is a handsome two-level design that also wraps around the doors for an overall thoughtful feeling. In the rear, theres a good amount of room, so even the adults are comfortable. There are few individual options available, and instead, packages are bundled across five trim lines. Our top-ofthe-line Ultimate test vehicle included a panoramic sunroof, surround-view back-up camera, head-up display and ventilated seats (a great Florida feature.) It also came with all-wheel drive and the upgraded motor. Fully loaded, the price never got above $40K.


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C21 While looking tough on the outside and adding value inside might seem unrelated at first, it all goes toward a self-assured feeling that is best understood out on the road. Hyundai is shifting its focus to driving dynamics, and the new Santa Fe shows off where the engineers spent a lot of improvement time. The predecessor felt solid on the road, but it was a bit uninspired. It likely didnt hurt sales because mainstream crossovers dont need to be sports cars in disguise. But driving the new 2019 Santa Fe instantly conveys something missing from the old one: confidence. The steering is tighter and heavier. It doesnt require more effort to use, but it does feel like theres more direct connection between the driver and the front wheels. The suspension geometry has been reconfigured for better composure over bumps. Plus, the ones equipped with all-wheel drive get torque vectoring its variable wheel speeds for inside and outside tires during cornering thats seen on sports cars like the Jaguar F-Type. All of this added composure reinforces the feeling of premium. There are two motors available. They are a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 185 horsepower and an optional 2.0-liter turbocharged unit making 235 hp. Our test car was the upper-level turbo powerhouse. It felt good around town and could accelerate nicely for the highway. Hyundai focused a little more on weight savings than overall power for this model. That leaves room for a few gutsier engines from competitors like Ford and Kia with optional six-cylinders. Still, for most of us, daily driving needs wont stretch the upper limits of Hyundais turbo motor. The new Santa Fe wants to look like a strapping SUV on the outside, be a roomy family hauler on the inside and offer an extra hint of excitement on the asphalt. Its absolutely a mainstream crossover, and quite a confident one at that. FLORIDA WRITERSEducating, entertaining fiction about seniors and assisted living Dont Admit Youre in Assisted Living First Mystery: The Kiss, by Dorothy Seymour Mills. Blue Water Press LLC. 154 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95.This delightful three-part mystery series by Dorothy Seymour Mills, who recently turned 90, provides an insightful and humorous look at senior living communities. The authors model for the setting, a place she calls Locksley Glen, is her Naples home of The Carlisle. However, she is writing fiction and she means for her exploration of such a community to be representative. Readers will journey into a world of people who are past being active physically and whose ability to contribute to modern life is limited by physical decline and encroaching age-connected illness. But as the novel makes clear, these people, mostly women, are abundantly alive, curious, engaged and brimming with experiential knowledge. They offer one another vital, shareable experience in a setting made to order for their needs. When 80-year-old Locksley resident Clarence is spotted accepting a kiss from a young Greek waiter named Petros, the rumor mill starts grinding. Alice, the principal character and the narrator, wonders if this behavior an elderly man showing sexual interest in a teenage employee fits into the parameters of normality. What is the revealed relationship all about? What is the mystery behind the kiss? Some speculation about sexual activity between senior citizens follows, but the question is left up in the air. It seems less and less important as another strange event takes over the imaginations of the residents: Someone is stabbed during a Halloween party. Preparations for the party involve the creation of costumes. A most popular and attractive resident, Starr, borrows some paint from Alice, an artist who is about to have a significant exhibition of her paintings. Starr uses the paint to fashion a cardboard gun and knife as part of her outlaw cowboy costume. Somehow, the imitation knife gets replaced by a real one a steak knife stolen from the Locksley Glen kitchen and ends up being used as a weapon in a real crime against Petros father, Tzannis Papadopoulos, who Petros had been trying to prevent from being allowed into the United States. Meanwhile, the cardboard knife is found to have real blood on it. While the intrigues regarding this family which includes another son, Stavros, and a Greek woman named Ariadne are entertaining, nothing is more entertaining that the overall portrait of senior living and the quirks and unexpected vitality of the key members of the Locksley Glen community. They show inventiveness, loyalty, a cooperative spirit and the ability to energize a plan to negotiate with the authorities investigating the crime/crimes connected with the Greek family. As they work to ameliorate the familys situation, humor abounds in their personalities and actions. Locksley Glen proves to be an example of a generally well-run business whose executives and key professionals know how to manage their responsibilities. The descriptions of the important rooms and representative activities include the attention paid to providing opportunities for friendships and continued personal growth. Ms. Mills provides plenty of satiric touches, but they are touches that convey a genuine fondness for the carefully planned environment that nurtures and protects the residents. Yes, things can go wrong, but things can go wrong anywhere. The other titles in this most welcome series are Mystery Two: The Wet Bathing Suit and Third Mystery: The Phone Call. Collectively, the three separately bound short novels provide an inside view of the opportunities and limitations of life in assisted living communities. The key personalities continue, but the story lines are quite different. All present useful information for those considering such a lifestyle while offering suspense and smiles that any reader will enjoy.About the authorThis is historian Dorothy Seymour Mills 30th book.

Located in the Village Shops on Venetian Bay Venetian Village 4270 Gulf Shore Boulevard North, Naples 239-649-5552 baysideseafoodgrillandbar.comSparkling Waterfront Views and Live Entertainment! VINOLearn some Italian wines, that is Its no secret that Americans love Italian wines. Because we spend so much time in Italian restaurants, and because we love the cuisine, its only natural that we usually reach for a bottle of Chianti or something similar to complement our meals. And its also no secret that Chianti and the surrounding regions are the wine regions best known to most of us. There, and also perhaps the Piedmont area where those tasty Barolos and Barberas come from. OK, and maybe well be surprised by a bottle of some yummy red like Corvina from the Veneto, the area west and north of Venice. Well, its time to expand our Italian horizons just a little bit. First, as I may have mentioned in the past, Italy is the only country in the world where wine is made in every single region. There are between 17 and 18 regions (depending how you count them) which means that places like Sicily, Apulia and even Sardinia deserve some attention. There are discoveries to be made. A recent revelation is a red wine called Teroldego, which is mainly grown in the Dolomites, the mountains due north of Venice by about 150 miles. In fact, the region is closer to Austria than to Italy. This is a charming medium-bodied red with soft tannins and flavors of dark berry fruits, like wild cherry, cassis and blueberry. In a way its a bit like a Shiraz that doesnt smack you in the face. Its softer, rounder and much more subtle. One of the new standouts among Teroldego winemakers is Elisabetta Foradori, so look for that name on the label. Its a new favorite at our house. Like most forms of life, grapes can become extinct. People stop cultivating them and they just sort of go away. One of those is a red called Piculit Neri, but its making a comeback thanks to one single dedicated (obsessed?) winemaker named Emilio Bulfon. He rediscovered this ancient varietal, and Im glad he did. He has also revived other varietals and is actively promoting them. The wine has flavors of wild berries, with hints of smoke and vanilla. You might also sense some herbaceous notes. Its a bit tannic, which makes it an excellent match for meat dishes and some poultry. Back to the Teroldego. Heres our recommendation, along with some other favorites.Foradori Teroldego Vignetti Delle Dolomite 2014 ($24) The deep garnet color in the glass promises richness on the palate with an unmistakably Italian nose of sweet black fruit, red flowers and hints of earth. The wine is very round and soft on the palate, with no clinging tannins. There is warm, dark cherry, and a persistent finish that goes on and on. We bought a case of it. WW 94. Chateau Montelena Zinfandel Calistoga 2015 ($39) While this winery is best known for its Chardonnay, the Zin is definitely worth a try. Very true to type, with smoke, bramble, chocolate and wood notes nicely balanced by bold black fruit flavors. WW 90. Bruno Paillard Champagne NV $50 A premiere example of what Champagne is supposed to be. Drinks above its price point. Fine mousse, with tangy notes of minerals and lemon. We finished the whole bottle. WW 94. Lucas & Lewellen Hidden Asset Red Blend Santa Barbara 2016 ($29) An interesting mlange of Malbec, Merlot, Syrah and a few other varietals, the 16 months of oak aging imparts complex flavors of red and black raspberry, spice and currant. Tannins are lush and rounded, for a lingering finish. WW 92. Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. Why is there sediment in my wine? Denise B., Bonita SpringsA. The solids you might see in a wine bottle consist of pigments that drop out of suspension as the wine ages. Also, the tannins sometimes bond together and settle to the bottom. These particles are harmless but its best to stand the bottle upright for a few days, then decant the wine. You can also buy a wine funnel to strain out the sediment.

Each year, the grounds around the lake fill up with dozens of dreamlike art installations, most of which beckon attendees to experience them though play, touch, sight and sound. Set in the midst of 800 acres of Spanish moss-draped oak and cypress along the black Suwanee River, and complete with the largest bat house in the Southeast U.S., the park is one of the most beautiful live music venues in the country. It offers guests a general store, fullservice restaurant, free showers, indoor bathrooms and water stations. Its thickly wooded and boasts an amphitheater under the oaks and a wide meadow for main stage acts.

CUISINEThe Boathouse mixes prime location with well-executed seafoodIts smack in the center of town, but theres parking to be had. It overlooks Naples Bay, but you dont have to get all fancied up or drop a fortune to enjoy a meal there. Im not sure why it took me so long to visit this cozy little oasis by the bay. Id heard about it from a couple of chefs who said they enjoy sneaking away from the more upscale destinations to enjoy the bounty of seafood served here. We made reservations and although I didnt ask for it, we landed a lovely window table overlooking the bay. To get there required a hike past the bar and a plethora of nautical knickknacks, as youd expect in a place called The Boathouse. A server arrived quickly to offer beverages. An Absolut martini ($10.75) and a Jameson Irish Whiskey ($8.75) arrived swiftly and were suitable elixirs to start a relaxing Saturday night meal. Two types of warm rolls and a generous mound of soft butter came next, helping stave off our hunger as we examined the voluminous menu. If you have trouble making decisions, this place likely will prove painful. Will it be fin fish or shellfish? Steak or prime rib? A combo platter of fin and shell fish? Steak and lobster tail? Prime rib and shrimp? Something vegetarian? Or maybe a burger? Salad? Sandwich? Im not an indecisive type, but The Boathouse presents a challenge. Highlighted items indicate house specialties and those might be helpful if you like whats contained therein. Among those is the smoked salmon carpaccio ($13.50), which my companion selected while I struggled with the six six! soups, finally choosing the New England clam chowder ($8.95), which is billed as made to order, over lobster bisque, seafood gumbo and corn and crab chowder. The carpaccio was a lovely dish, consisting of cured salmon, thinly sliced, lightly dressed with extra virgin olive oil, sweet red onions, capers, tomatoes, lemon and crisp flatbread. The portion was ample for two and our server obligingly delivered two small plates and another soup spoon when she saw we intended to share. The fish was tender with a subtle smoky flavor that melded well with all the accompaniments on the plate. Im not sure about the made to order aspect of the chowder because both appetizers arrived in fairly short order, but it was hot, chock full of potatoes, chunks of clam, celery and seasonings in a soup that was creamy but not overly thick.To accompany our meal, we ordered a bottle of Ponzi Pinot Noir Classico 2014, an excellent wine from the Willamette Valley with notes of dark chocolate and lavender in the nose leading to dark cherries and velvety tannins in the mouth. My companion had a hankering for sea bass and found it in a dish called Bourbon Street Sea Bass Oscar ($29.95). It ordinarily comes with Cajun spices, but she didnt want those so the server was happy to order it sans spice. As it turned out, the dish was just fine without it. The sea bass was lightly broiled and topped with crabmeat and spinach. As requested, the tangy citrus hollandaise came in a little cup on the side along with another of b utter f or the soft, sweet baked sweet potato she selected from the side options. (All entrees come with choice of fresh fruit, seasonal vegetable, house or Caesar salad, and baked potato, rice pilaf, mashed potatoes, sweet potato, coleslaw or linguini marinara. Sweet potato fries and French fries are available on request.) The fish was cooked just right, the crabmeat was sweet and the spinach was tender but not soggy. I liked the hollandaise, which contained a bit of citrus that added zest. I dont know what this dish tastes like with the Cajun spices, but even without them there was plenty going on. Both sides of fresh broccoli and another of zucchini and yellow squash were was cooked properly. Because the restaurant offers a number of meat choices, it seemed like a good idea to try one so I went for the beef and reef ($36.50), a combo of an 8-ounce prime rib and sauted garlic shrimp. I choose the aforementioned squash and a baked potato with this combo. The shrimp were garlicky, as advertised, plump and juicy. No complaints there. The rib, however, was on the chewy side and lacked the rich flavor Im accustomed to in prime rib. It was just an average piece of meat. It came with a cup of horseradish, which also lacked punch. We were on the upswing with dessert, however, with the house-made crme brulee cheesecake ($6.25), which had a delicate burned sugar top and a creamy texture that was just sweet enough. A gluten-free chocolate cake ($6.5) had a convincing cake consistency and a layer of creamy filling, but I was too full to take more than a few bites. Service was good throughout our meal. Our server was attentive but not pesky. She made sure all went smoothly and didnt abandon us at meals end. Next time youre in the mood for a fish feed, set course for The Boathouse. I can see why the chefs are hooked on it.
