Write on, we said. And they did. Florida Weekly readers responded in record numbers to our 2018 Writing Challenge. The eighth annual contest started the first week in August, and by the end of September we had received more than 400 original pieces of fiction inspired by the four photographs you see here. This week we are happy to announce the first and second place winners and two honorable mentions. First place goes to Nancy Neuman of Port Charlotte. Second place belongs to A.M.L. Brown of Marco Island. And honorable mentions the first in the history of the challenge go to Geraldine Story of Punta Gorda and Jonathan Tomhave of Naples. Read all four stories starting on page A22. Ms. Neuman is thrilled to be attending the upcoming Sanibel Island Writers Conference as our first place winner. With a masters in city and regional planning and a Ph.D. in geography, she is a semi-retired consultant who analyzes the impact potential development could have on air quality and noise. Her career has always involved technical writing, but fiction is a relatively new pursuit. Long Journey is her first piece to be published.The processEleven Florida Weekly editors and staff writers stepped up to the challenge of judging this years contest. We started by dividing up the whole bunch, with each of us reading some 40 entries and deciding on two favorites (well, one editor insisted he couldnt narrow his favorites down beyond three). Then all 11 of us read the 23 finalists and again picked our top two. Ms. Neumans story emerged as the clear winner, followed by Ms. Browns. A few other stories received one vote as a judges favorite.

COMMENTARYA little each week, or twoMy pickup was red, not green like the 1957 Dodge Power Wagon with a 90 horsepower, 230 cubic centimeter, flathead sixcylinder engine my Colorado ranching uncles still owned, the only truck I ever admired. Instead, mine was made by International Harvester in 1959 It had six cylinders too, upwards of 150,000 miles on the odometer, and somewhere in the vicinity of 120 horsepower, giving it a capacity for speed that produced a blazing 61 mph if you had a slightly downward slope and a few days to get there. Running it above 50 even on a gentle incline was almost impossible. This was 1972 in Douglas County, Kansas, where the rolling hills of the eastern prairie vaguely resemble the Lake Wales ridge country in Central Florida. My girlfriend, Eva, had decided to go into natural living with me. So we bought the truck for $200 from an old farmer. Then we found another old farmer who would let us garden in his rambling corrals, plotting out 120 feet by 50 inch soil enriched from decades of cow manure. We grew potatoes, onions, carrots, tomatoes, corn, pole beans, peas, spinach, lettuce, squash, peppers and a few watermelons the whole shebang. That farmer, Burt Wilson, was a Cherokee Indian adopted about 1905 from a Kansas orphanage by the postmaster of Lawrence, whose name happened to be Roger Williams. Thats all it took. The coincidence of names got us a carte blanche opportunity to work one of the tidiest farms in eastern Kansas, neatly tucked into 450 acres of Wakarusa River bottomland. We grew hundreds of pounds of produce, never anticipating either the size of the harvests or the hard work it would take while we were going to college about 10 miles to the north, in Lawrence. Our friends, though, appreciated the food. So did we. And we loved those soft summer evenings in the fields: the cacophonous cricket symphonies performed spontaneously from stands of black oaks. The air above the valley floor settling sweet with the whispered promise of days-end cool. Fireflies sparking above the garden and across the road into the trees, while dusk slipped away west into night and Colorado. We never considered that all of it, for us, depended on that old pickup. And we never considered that the old pickup depended on roads built for its use; on the full-service gas stations that pocked the American countryside then; on oil wells stretched back from Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and the Americas into North Africa; on ships that transported the oil, on ports where it was offloaded and moved out, on the refineries that prepared the oil, and finally on the railroads, highways and transports that carried gasoline to the service stations. All of which created an elaborate system of economics of international dependencies neither of us would ever have been able to explain. We were a little too proud of ourselves in those days for living simply and (as we viewed it) self-sufficiently. In truth, we werent. The truck had a covered back so you could either sleep in it or haul tools and vegetables without getting wet, both of which we did. In addition, it got as much as 18 or 20 miles per gallon when gasoline was running 31 cents or so at the pumps. Thats important. Volkswagens produced in the late 1950s and s could get up to 50 miles per gallon, sometimes, but they were almost the only foreign-made cars you saw on the road. American-made cars and trucks did a nice unapologetic eight, 10 or 12 mpg, for the most part. Unbeknownst to Eva and me (we thought we were rugged individualists), wed embarked on typical 20th century American lives. Our century, the 20th, was distinguished not just by world wars and social change, but by the sounds of internal combustion engines and the sight of pole-strung wires connecting every town and almost every home in the United States and western Europe. We used resources (in this case fossil fuels) like there was no tomorrow. So did everybody else we knew. That fact to me that reality suggests the ultimate dependency, one far exceeding the dependencies of a mere international economy. Why? Because were still doing it now and now all of us know what were doing. Now, weve become a conscious and willing part of a rising tsunami of resource exploitation by humans. Our human tsunami is distinct from the Earths cycles of change in geology, geography, weather and biology that have unfolded since the planet was created four billion years ago. But this tsunami doesnt exist in a vacuum, by itself. In fact, its an accelerant. So the more we drive, or the less we drive electric or gas-saving vehicles, the more we have to accept blame for the horrific consequences our children will inherit. What can we do? The answer is, a little each day. And thats not hard. Plan to drive a little less: Make one shopping trip instead of two or three in a week. Buy locally produced foods that dont have to be shipped great distances, requiring heavy participation in the tsunami. And plan to vote. Vote for the candidates who take the tsunami seriously and look for ways to hobble it, to slow it, to break it up and inhibit it. One other thing, too: recycle, like my cousin, Mike. I no longer have my old IH pickup. But Mike still has and operates the Dodge Power Wagon, now 60 years old this fall. He drives it just a little each day. Or week, or two.

In an interview on CNN, the erstwhile advocate of if they go low, we go high switched around to unapologetically call for going low. You cannot be civil with a political party, she explained, that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. She added that if Democrats retake a house of Congress, well, then, thats when civility can start again. Clintons statement is yet more confirmation of the radical mood of the current Democratic Party, not just in blessing tactics that once would have been anathema to the mainstream, but questioning the legitimacy of core elements of our system. The partys base is just a few steps from beginning to give up on our common national life. Civility is a rather fundamental thing to throw under the bus. It is the basis of our political life, assuring that disagreements are settled within certain bounds and dont escalate into blood feuds. This doesnt mean that there cant be intense arguments, harsh condemnations, passionate controversies and partisan donnybrooks. These are all endemic to a free society and very healthy things. It does mean that there are certain widely accepted guardrails. In the Brett Kavanaugh debate, the normal pressure points of the democratic process (rallies and demonstrations, phone calls to congressional offices, online, print and TV advocacy) were deemed insufficient senators had to be berated in the hallways, chased out of restaurants and harassed at their homes. Asked on CNN if the actions against her fellow senators went too far, Mazie Hirono stood by the harassment: I think it just means that there are a lot of people who are very, very much motivated about whats going on. But when you angrily confront someone, especially as part of a group, it carries an inescapable whiff of physical intimidation. When you shout Ted and Heidi Cruz out of a Washington restaurant, you arent trying to convince them of anything, you are merely abusing them. When you yell at Senate hearings and floor votes, you arent influencing the process, but disrupting it. Our system of government is increasingly held in low regard on the left. The 2016 election was somehow stolen, and the mechanism that gave Trump his victory, the Electoral College, is illegitimate. The Senate, which confirmed Kavanaugh and gives small, red states the same representation as large, blue states, is also illegitimate. Finally, the Supreme Court, now home to two Trump-appointed justices, is illegitimate as well. Thats a lot of illegitimacy, all stemming from one lost presidential election. Imagine if Democrats lose another? The fact is that if you believe an institution is legitimate only if you control it or it works in your favor, you never truly believed in its legitimacy to begin with. Perhaps the Democratic fever will pass if the party gains some power again, as Clinton suggested in her remarks. But its notable enough that one of our major parties is showing signs of contemplating a divorce from our system as it currently exists. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYKing Features Winning at gutterballIts Major League Baseball playoff season, as well as the run-up to the elections. Oh, the games people play. Way back when, in the early 20th century, New York Giants manager John Mugsy McGraw was the first to utter an important life lesson for those who play either form of Hardball (thank you, Chris Matthews). Nice guys, he growled, finish last. Its wisdom the Democrats are only now allowing to penetrate their cluelessness. Really? they whimper in amazement. Its not enough to be righteous? Not when its self-righteous, which is what so many Americans perceive them to be, along with sanctimonious. Nor is it enough when the other team is governed by a mindset of whatever it takes to win, fair or foul. Back in John McGraws day, the crosstown Yankees with Babe Ruth dominated Americas Pastime. These days, in our other pastime, the Republicans succeed by being ruthless. They dont really stand for the interests of the great bulk of Americans, opting instead to represent the wealthy few, who long ago realized, as Will Rogers declared, that we have The best Congress that money can buy. Actually, Mr. Rogers was only in the neighborhood. Its really the best government money can buy. And even thats not true, because, in many cases, its really a pretty useless one, which suits the GOP just fine. It keeps their rich patrons happy because they dont want to be effectively regulated as they pursue their moneygrubbing ways. The Democrats like to think theyre above all that sleaziness, which is totally wrong for two reasons: First of all, the Ds scrounge for dollars as much as the Rs do. Besides, even if they were squeakyclean, they actually need to be willing to roll around in the mud. Michelle Obamas When they go low, we go high just wont cut it, particularly when it comes across as being high and mighty. A few Democrats are even saying so publicly, like former Attorney General Eric Holder, who got a rousing cheer with his When they go low, we kick them. He didnt say where you kick them, but use your imagination. Even Hillary Clinton, who personified her partys inner sanctimony when she ran for president, caused a few gasps when she declared, You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for. Some liberals probably got the vapors when she said that, but she was taught a bitter lesson by Donald Trump, who now occupies the White House, riding a crest through the hateful g utters of his campaign and his dangerous presidency. Hillarys superior qualifications amounted to nothing. Time for Trumps enemies to learn some hard lessons from him. Democrats have evolved from working-class champions to effete snobs. Too many dont understand that cheap shots work in campaigns, the kind the other side puts out constantly in its TV ads. Cheap shots are expensive. It costs a lot to conduct oppo research and then distort it in TV spots. The liberals need to accept that the only way for a candidate to set up shop inside the Beltway is to hit his or her opponent below the belt. Just like the conservatives do.

Thats why shes taking on that mantle for others. Ms. Zore recently created her own nonprofit, Fallen Officers, which supports the Robert L. Zore Foundation, named after her father who was killed in the line of duty when Ms. Zore was 7 years old. The nonprofit will host its first event, the Blue Bowl, on Nov. 3 at Estero High School. Its a charity flag football tournament aimed at raising funds for the families of two recently fallen local police officers: Clay County deputy Ben Zirbel and Fort Myers police officer Adam Jobbers-Miller. When an officer goes down, everybody wants to help, Ms. Zore said of her experience dealing with such tragedy. There are organizations helping, whether it be cooking the family meals or other necessities. But as you get older and time goes by, you do still need some help. Thats where Fallen Officers comes in.Ms. Zore hopes to continue helping families that have trouble recouping from the financial loss of a fallen officer, whether it be getting a childs summer camp paid for, some late bills to be paid or other needs. Families who are in need can apply for funds to help with such necessities. Ms. Zores hope is the Blue Bowl becomes the start of something more.We have a jazz fest planned, a gala honoring fallen officers some time next year. Well do events throughout the year. We want to go around the country and travel to other cities and communities to help out where we can. Ms. Zore said shes wanted to start Fallen Officers for a long time, but now was the right time given the current national climate. Everything thats going on in our society with people doubting law enforcement I want to help try to bring it back around, she said. Police are here to protect and help us.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYAnd now along both coasts of Florida and everywhere else, it seems, local breweries are busting out like a Ninkasi spring, borne on a tide of hankering for fresh and local, or original, as the case may be with some beers made in Europe. Although this isnt news in many places the Northwest and the Northeast of the United States, for example, have robust, two-decade-old local beer economies its been slow coming in Florida, says Dave Robbins, owner of The Belgian Monk in Punta Gorda and a philosophy instructor at Florida SouthWestern State College in Fort Myers. History? Here in Port Charlotte a restaurant and brew pub called the Sunset Grill opened in 2000, and it went out of business, he says. Then in 2008 the IceHouse opened, they had 26 drafts, and it was still considered odd. But now craft beer has hit Florida like a big rain, and theres no going back, it seems. The Belgian Monk opened 10 months ago. A lot of people are looking for good beer and craft breweries pop up almost every day. That doesnt mean every brewery makes good beer, though, Mr. Robbins cautions. A little more history: Belgian beer dates back centuries, and is still made by Trappist monks from six monasteries. The Belgian Monk itself is based on a brew pub its founder came to love while studying philosophy as a graduate student at the Catholic University of Brussels, one of only about 10 in Florida that has so many Belgians mostly ales. With other food, Mr. Robbins also serves kabobs, because when the pubs closed at 3 a.m. in Brussels there was always a kabob shop open nearby fresh, fast and delicious, he says. In the simplest terms, ales are the ancient beers warm-brewed with yeast at the top of the ferment. They include pale ales, porters, stouts, wheat and brown ales. Lagers, on the other hand, are coldbrewed with the yeast at the bottom, and include pilsners, bocks and Oktoberfest beers. The lagers are newbies, with genomes or genetic material that originated in Argentina joined with the more ancient stuff of ales going back to the Sumerians only about 500 years old at most. They originated in Bavaria at about the time Europeans began hauling back plants from the New World, beerologists say. About 70 percent of The Belgian Monks drafts are indeed Belgian the beer comes in kegs and modern shipping allows it to be served virtually as fresh as it would be in Brussels but he also serves a range of craft brews that include beer from the Peace River and Fat Point Breweries nearby. The contrast simply in history and tradition is striking. Half my Belgian drafts are 300 to 400 years old, he explains. Palm, a mild Belgian ale, is by far my biggest seller, and theyve been making it from the same recipe since about the 1700s. Whereas Fat Tire, for example, came to the East coast about four years ago. Palm was craft beer before they had a term for craft beer. Its so popular, in fact, that Mr. Robbins has taken to erecting a flag outside his establishment when the beer is fresh in, and taking the flag down when he runs out. So many breweries, so little time Thats just one brew story, but there are now many. Jumping into this tradition, brew pubs and tap rooms here come with at least two attractive qualities, in addition to the beer: Characters who run them, and enviable, sometimes ambitious names. Names like Rip Tide Brewing or Bone Hook Brewing in Naples; World of Beer, or Big Storm Brewery in Fort Myers and Cape Coral; The Belgian Monk or Fat Point Brewing in Charlotte; or the Twisted Trunk, the West Palm Brewery & Wine Vault, and Accomplice, in Palm Beach County to name only a few. They also come with characters characters who can work like dogs but seem to know a lot about the world. At the Accomplice, in the warehouse district about a mile north of Palm Beach International Airport, for example, coowner Matt Stetson is the executive cider maker thats hard cider, the original go-to drink of the Puritans in the New World, who probably had a lot more fun than they get credit for having. Born in upstate New York but raised mostly on Floridas southeast coast, Mr. Stetson could brew beer by the time he was 9 years old. His grandfather taught him but he also taught the boy how to make hard cider, says his partner, coowner Felonice Merriman, the senior warden of the place. They offer customers cider from a recipe that came from his great-greatgreat-great grandfather in the old country, along with about 15 other ciders and two meads in grain-free taps. This is not gluten-removed; on the contrary, this is no gluten, ever hence the grain-free tap in ciders made with an apple base and a wide range of fruits. The Accomplice also has 14 Floridaonly beers and 12 wine taps, along with a variety of food delivered daily in gourmet food trucks with specialties. It wasnt always going to be that way. Originally they were just going to be wholesalers, and that remains a significant part of the business, with distribution from the Orlando area to Miami, Ms. Merriman says. But things changed. We were South Floridas first cider works, with a plan to sell only through retailers, but people kept stopping by, she said. And the more word spread and people kept coming, the more they realized they needed a license. Two licenses a wine license to sell cider, and another to sell craft beers. So now, Accomplice is about to host a Nov. 3 grand reopening of the tap or tasting room. You can drink there or get growlers to go in quarts or gallons. You can even bring your own containers, your own food, or enjoy the specialty food trucks. Matts very innovative. He likes to do cool South Florida fruit, Ms. Merriman notes of the ciders. For example, the Mango Madness cider we dont buy mango syrup, we use mangoes. And we do a lemon basil called Limone di Genoa thats for the Loews Portofino Bay Resort, a Universal resort, they came to us and asked and its incredibly refreshing. We do a coffee cider using a local roaster in Jupiter, too. Much of this focus began with her own gluten-free needs, she acknowledged. When Matt met me we (started) this brewing project, but I cant ingest gluten so we started working on a plan for the cider works, she says. In a step that now seems extraordinary for any successful business with reach, they had less than $100,000 to kick off the business mostly money from themselves and friends. But they knew what they were doing and the city of West Palm Beach, unlike a number of other Florida towns, welcomed their business as long as they stuck to the warehouse district. So they did, she says. And it took off, leading to an expansion. We went the direction of gluten fee and meads, and we also have a cidermead hybrid, which is usually higher alcohol than cider but not as high as the meads, she explains.

SUPPORT CLE A Benetting Why this business why brewing fine beers? Oh, it must be the low pay and long hours, and the love of sanitizing tanks and hoses, he says, chuckling. We started in this 2,300-square-foot warehouse with a glorified pots and pans system, and when it was 100 degrees outside, it was 120 degrees inside, Mr. Govoni recalls. Not to be vulgar, but we used to have a urine chart in there like you might see in an NCAA locker room, requiring mandatory water breaks. Now, they have an 8,000-square-foot warehouse, three facilities and a story that goes right back to their roots. Mike was a senior when I was a sophomore in high school, and my dad was his football coach, Mr. Govoni says this was at Clearwater Central Catholic. They went their separate ways and Mike Bishop got into the business first, becoming a brewer. That in itself is a story: He toured a Yuengling brewery so frequently for the free samples that one day when a tour guide didnt show up, a Yuengling official asked Mike Bishop if hed mind leading the tour. He didnt mind, and he didnt mind hard work, either, Mr. Govoni says. Suddenly he was in the business, not just drinking it. Mr. Bishop is now Big Storms master brewer. Eventually, Mr. Govoni found his way into the business, too. I dont know if youve ever seen me, but Im a short fat guy so obviously I like beer, he says. He also doesnt mind very hard work thats true of any brewer but in his case, he really does love the business side of this ancient business. You work for yourself in an industry where the definition of what something is changes on a constant bases. You have to have a passion for entrepreneurship, he says. In Cape Coral, Big Storm is a smallbatch brewery, with 16 beers on tap and an 1,800-square-foot tasting room. When the weather allows, which is often, the front doors and brew house doors are open so you can see whats going on, he says. All of thats part of a very ancient tradition, one summarized best, perhaps, at The Belgian Monk, which offers this motto: Beer. Food. Absolution. Absolution is a word with an exceeding rich history in western Europe a Catholic history inspired in part by one of the great pillars of the church, St. Thomas Aquinas. St. Thomas, who might very well have granted absolution to beer drinkers, may not have needed to after he defined the principal of temperance in drinking this way: not as not drinking, but as drinking usque ad hilaritatem, or just to the point of hilarity.Thats what happens at The Belgian Monk and often at other craft brew houses.Were a happy pub, says Mr. Robbins, brewer and philosopher and were also tongue-in-cheek. You can have a guilt-free good time, because where you find Belgian ale, youll find absolution. COURTESY PHOTOIn Cape Coral, Big Storm is a small-batch brewery, with 16 beers on tap.

GUEST COMMENTARY Climate change report draws a yawnNo one is paying any attention to it during election season, and I suspect few will afterward. Its not that we dont care; we simply have more important things to worry about. Im talking about the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. The U.N. group upped the ante several weeks ago by forecasting a doomed planet. The trouble is the forecast is implausible, and its proposed remedies are even more implausible. Drawing on questionable computer models, the IPCC warned that temperature rise must be held to 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels to prevent vast flooding, starvation and rampant disease. Thats even more dire than the phony Paris accords, which promised salvation if the temperature increase could be held to 2.0 degrees Celsius by the end of the century. Its all pie-in-the-sky. British scientists recently forecast we will blow by the 1.5-degree target by the mid-2020s. An earlier study published in Nature Science Change reported a 90 percent chance the planet will be warmed by 2 to 4.9 degrees Celsius by 2100 in spite of a 90 percent reduction in carbon emissions. David Victor of UC San Diego said, Theres no scenario under which temperature rise could be contained below 2 degrees. We cant get there from here. The damage has already been done. This all assumes the computer models are reliable. The U.K. Center for Ecology and Hydrology couldnt narrow projections to more than 2.2 to 3.4 degrees. The journal Nature says the issue is stubbornly uncertain. Peter Wood, head of the National Association of Scholars is quoted as saying, The whole discipline of climate change is a farrago of unreliable statistics, arbitrary research techniques and politicized groupthink.None of that fazed the U.N. panel. Urging immediate, drastic, large-scale economic changes, it would have us plaster the country with solar panels, cover the coastlines with wind turbines and convert farmlands to forests presumably to suck up carbon dioxide. It would also impose a national (or is it international) carbon tax, the unworkable panacea when all else fails. And it all has to done now. Carbon emissions must be cut 45 percent by 2030.It wont happen. Heres why. China, India, even ever-so-green Germany are increasing, not decreasing, coal usage. U.S. oil and natural gas production is soaring, and Russia and Saudi Arabia arent about to turn off the spigot. The International Energy Agency estimates fossil fuels will provide at least three-quarters of the worlds energy needs in 2040. Even the less-stringent Paris promises, if delivered, would provide less than 1 percent of the carbon cuts the U.N. says are now needed. And to accomplish that, some $2.4 trillion in annual investment, about 2.5 percent of world GDP, would be required over the next two decades (Wall Street Journal). The IPCC manifesto is little more than a pipe dream. But it does serve to fuel the hysteria. Hurricane Michael has been blamed on global warming, as have record 2017 temperatures (El Nino played no role, trumpets the headline). The ozone layer is thinning, the globes nutrients are being sapped, fruit production is tanking. While we fiddle, the earth burns, writes a political columnist. She offers no solutions. Various reports blame climate change for both drought and heavy rainfall, both melting icecaps and increasing cold, both lower crop yields and uncontrollably higher crop yields. Blame it for whatever ails you. Arthritis? Why not? Its like the little boy hollering wolf. Pretty soon nobody pays any attention to the warnings. Can we, in fact, do anything to deal with climate change? Yes. We can prepare for it. We cant turn back the weather clock or roll back the seas. But we can change coastline zoning, locate utilities inland, boost desalination capacity. We can foster drought-resistant crops and focus research on heat-driven diseases. We can pump government money into research for renewables. Subsidizing inefficient solar and wind isnt the answer. Instead, we should use the power of government, our taxpayer dollars, to make renewables the free-market choice. Reducing green energy cost is one approach. Removal of CO2 from the atmosphere is another. Still another is injection of reflective particles into the atmosphere to deflect the suns rays before they reach the earth. There is no shortage of ideas. While none of these things will cool the planet, some might slow down the warming. Research is the key. The Wall Street Journal editorializes, The only real salvation will come from technological breakthroughs. Climate skeptic Bjorn Lomborg writes, Genuine breakthroughs are required Analysis shows a ramped-up green-energy budget of around $100 billion a year would be the most effective global-warming policy. Will any of this happen? Not likely. Preparation for ocean rise gets attention only when theres here-and-now damage. An example is Miami and a few other lowlying metropolitan areas like Baltimore. Budget-busting research is also unlikely. Government at all levels has too many other priorities. Climate change is, after all, a long-term proposition with uncertain timing. It cant compete with the economy, jobs, affordable housing, the opioid crisis and a host of other immediate problems. Bottom line? The untenable IPCC report is a yawn. We have more important things to attend to. A retired chemist, Naples resident Dave Trecker serves on a number of local boards. Follow his blog at www.theresidentscorner.com. TRECKER

As organizer and overseer, I also checked in every Writing Challenge entry as it pinged into my in box, did a word count (maximum allowed was 750; 18 stories went over and were disqualified), made sure the writer had provided a phone number and hometown and then formatted the document so the entries would all look the same for the judges. Here are a few other favorite things I noted in the process: Shortest entry: 110 words, The Final Illumination, a sweet read about first love by Henry Heitmann of Fort Myers Beach. Longest entry: 1,800 words. Really. When I generously offered the writer the chance to self-edit his piece so it could be considered, he responded: It is what it is. Take it or leave it. I left it. Best title to go with photo prompt: Steps to the Loo, My Darlin, by Roberta Gerber of Bonita Springs, for her story inspired by the staircase photo. Best title that might also describe the Writing Challenge itself (tie): The Agony of the Creative Spirit, by Jerry Churba of Naples, and The Eternal Search for an Original Thought, by Daniel Krause, also of Naples. And best first sentence (three-way tie): The plainness of a cheese sandwich and an orange juice should willingly inspire an overactive but tractable mind to one goal. From A Cheese Sandwich and OJ with Cherub Rock, by Jason Pfeiffer of Palm Beach Gardens. Our lives are held together on certain fundamental assumptions: Water is wet, gravity holds us to the ground, no two snowflakes are alike and our parents acted in our best interest. From The Road Back Home, by Carol Macchi of Fort Myers. I suppose this is the outcome I should have expected when I took life-changing advice from my husbands mistress. From Family by Mary Fairbanks of Fort Myers. So another Florida Weekly Writing Challenge is a wrap. Thanks to all who participated.

At the end, I hope to enter Heaven. The dead are mostly rapists, child molesters and terrorists who dont deserve any sympathy. I dont talk to them. If I dont pick them up, theyll be gathered by another collector. For the first two years, I stubbornly ignored those miserable souls. Finally, I brought one in out of boredom, and thats when Caterina, my bitch of an Assigned Angel, revealed that each soul collected reduced my sentence by a day. The early years were hard. The road wound through a rocky desert where I pulled a sled that could carry one soul. Now, after years of adhering to the rules, I have a horse and trap, on a paved country road, that can carry three souls. Even so, the road is monotonous, the horse limps and the pace is an excruciating two miles an hour. I miss the exhilaration of weaving in and out of traffic at high speeds in my Lamborghini. One night, I hit a disabled car. It was in the right lane, not on the shoulder, and a family of four was inside waiting for help. That was stupid of them. A posthumous blood sample showed I had high levels of drugs and alcohol, but that wasnt the problem. I was driving fine. Those idiots just didnt belong in that travel lane in a broken down piece of crap. They all died. Then I was here, picked up and deposited at a way station, where I met Caterina. I was sentenced to 588 years as a collector. That would have been 600 years, but my mothers earnest prayers saved me 12 years. I relieve the boredom by reminiscing about my past an enviable life where I was handsome and wealthy, which entitled me to beautiful, skinny women with long, shiny hair and long legs. The sex was hot! I excelled at schemes to separate people from their money. The world is a jungle, and I was a top predator. The people I cheated were stupid and oh, so eager to trust me. No guilt on my part. If I didnt cheat them out of their savings, someone else would have done it. I had a yacht, an airplane, condos in New York City and Aspen and a bevy of lawyers to keep me out of jail. Every night, Caterina, old, short and gray-haired, asks the same questions, and I defiantly give her my same answers. What did you do today? Gathered three souls. What did you think about? My old life. What did you learn? Nothing. Whats to learn? This place is boring as hell. Hell is much worse. How can I get out of here faster? Stop thinking about yourself so much, Raymond. Geez! What else is there to think about in this place? Then she gives me a bottle of water and a baloney sandwich to combat the feelings of thirst and hunger over the next 24 hours, and I continue my journey. Ive learned not to irritate her too much. Twice in the past, she made me start the road over because of vulgar descriptive language. My clothing magically changes at midnight. Yesterday I looked like a drug dealer. Today she has me wearing a police uniform. I see my first soul of the day: a young female with gorgeous long legs and half a head standing by several men riddled with bullet holes. I stop. The men eye my police uniform and move away. Are you getting in? I ask her. I cant see! Where am I? She sounds alarmed. I get down to help her. Your head is half gone. Suicide? Shootout with the police after we killed all 28 children in the camp. Whoa! Innocent children? Youre screwed now! Am I going to Hell? She sounds scared. Maybe, I say. We have a long journey. Would you like a bite of baloney sandwich and a sip of water? Yes, thank you. Due to my police uniform, no other souls climb in today, but I chat with my passenger a little. The way station appears at midnight. I go through the usual questions with Caterina. Then she adds, You showed some compassion today, Raymond. Each compassionate act reduces your sentence by another day. Really? Wish shed told me that a lot sooner. Nancy Neuman is a resident of Port Charlotte.It was a day like any other dark, rainy, dreary and slow ... very slow. People always assume that if youre a private investigator, or PI, your days are filled with exciting adventures. Ha! That only happens in the movies. A real PIs life is not like that. Most days are filled with waiting for clients to show up. Today was a waiting day. So far, it looked like the most exciting thing on my agenda would be the latest Dr. Seuss novel and a warm glass of milk. I must admit, this Dr. Seuss is quite a clever fellow. I sat at my desk studying my small statue of the angel Ayala and her sweet sidekick, Apollo. I rubbed the little cherubs. I could almost hear the soothing music of Apollos lyre and Ayalas unspoken words of gratitude. I sent a humble, silent request to them letting them know that about now would be a nice time to send me a little business. Well, with nothing else left to do, and all that silent lyre music playing in my head, I decided it was time to just chill out. An hour later, I was nicely tucked into my couch enjoying Dr. Seuss and warm chocolate milk, when there came a very quiet tapping at my office window. At first, I just thought I must be dreaming, but then it came again ... tap, tap, tap. I rose from my spot and cautiously opened the window. I looked to the right, and then peered to the left, but there was no one there. I was just about to close the window when, to my surprise, a head popped up. Big, soulful brown eyes peered at me from beneath disheveled feathers. Who are you? I asked. What are you doing on my windowsill?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2018 NEWS A15Now Ive done it. Here I am, my formidable belly-up and I cant move. Thats what I get for being too lazy to make two trips upstairs. Id rather cut off the circulation in my arms carrying cases of beer up to the kitchen than make two trips. Oh, well. No worries. Shell be home soon enough. Ill be fine. Just dont move, they say. No prob lem there. Those stairs are going to be the death of you some day, the little woman has been saying for decades now. As much as I hate to admit it, shes right. I can see her now, standing over me laughing her ass off, taking pleasure in that very fact given my current predicament. This old fart doesnt have a cell phone surgically attached like most of my cohorts these days. Its always thegrandkids-this and the-grandkids-that. Wretched, noisy, self indulgent, entitled, germ-ridden walking petri dishes, in my not-so-humble-opinion. I barely liked my own kids when they were little. Yep, Im a card-carrying curmudgeon. My friends (if you can call them that) and especially my relatives would agree. Find out what youre good at and do your best at it, I always say. I embrace that philosophy and am exceptional at speaking my mind at every opportunity. Its essential that certain people hear the truth without sugar coating. Why should I tiptoe around someones ego, just to have them complain about the same thing over and over? Nip it in the bud, fix it and move on otherwise, shaddap and get out of the way. You will thank me later. As a result, Im pretty much tolerated for the most part at family gatherings, as Ive been coined the death of the party. Yeah, Brother Spends-too-Much and Cousin Desperate, I hear you whispering, you ingrates. Id give my left arm to reincarnate into a fly on the wall at my attorneys office to see your faces when you find out what I left you in my will. Where is the better half? Now, theres a stretch. What could she possibly be doing this late? Was there a sale on pallets of eggs or vats of applesauce at the big box store? Beer, I get, but its ridiculous how much we pay for these gargantuan containers that I can barely lift due to my arthritis. Thats what got me in this predicament in the first place. Ive told her time and time again to knock it off with the big purchases, but its like in one ear and out the other. As it stands, Im going to put half of this crap in the will. Actually, thats exactly what Im going to do once Im out of this mess. Dear ingrates, all you get is enough egg on your face to last a lifetime. Brilliant! Well where the Hell is she? Yap, yap, yap Little Johnny got into law school, or Little Mary is having triplets, or my favorite, Did you see what Myrtle had the nerve to plant in her garden? Enough already. Get it together and get your Aunt Fannie home and help me here. I have to go to the bathroom. Its starting to get dark. It hasnt been that long, has it? Damn, my head hurts. Everything is blurry and grainy but then, having your glasses fly across the room while falling down the stairs tends to cause that. Now this is strange: The rest of me isnt in pain I just cant move. Wait, the clock upstairs just chimed two bells. That cant be right. How could it be so dark already? Now Im starting to get really steamed. Wouldnt it serve her right if she finally showed up to find me dead in the basement? Oh, boy, thats rich. I know that Ive been a handful these last few years since retiring, but is it possible that she might just dance a jig upon discovery of a very overweight, grumpy husband dead at the bottom of the basement stairs? Hell, now that I think of it, I wouldnt blame her one bit. I dont even like myself sometimes these days. Hey, whats that going on upstairs? I dont remember leaving the light on up there. How many times do I have to keep telling everyone to turn the lights off when they leave the room? For the love of Mike, why doesnt anyone listen to me? I pay the bills in this house, dammit. If that power bill is through the roof this month, theyll get a piece of my mind. Wait just a gall-darned minute. The light is getting brighter as the room seems to be getting darker. Im feeling better all of a sudden, almost weightless. Did those ridiculous movie people in Hollywood finally get something right for once? I certainly hope so, although it looks like I picked a bad day to be an atheist or a good day stop being one. A.M.L. Brown lives on Marco Island.I am Infamous Bob, said the pathetic creature on the window ledge in a sort of clucking gobble. And you must be the famous Colette Gizzard. Somehow I knew I could find you, Colette! You know, Infamous Bob, my clients usually use the front door. I cant remember the last time one arrived via window. At any rate, if Id known you were going to use the window, Id have left you some birdseed. Now that youre here, how can I help? But first, Infamous Bob, kindly explain what you did to become infamous. Please accept my apology for any and all inconveniences to you. I got the name Infamous Bob after my 23rd escape from the Rainbow Turkey Farm. I desperately need your help, Colette. Word around the turkey farm is that youre in charge of the underground turkey railroad, otherwise known as Operation Relocate-A-Turkey. Word is that you help turkeys reinvent themselves. Oh jeez, another one, I thought. I was stunned that word had gotten around so fast. Well, Infamous Bob, I said, the word out is true. In fact, I have a group leaving today for Uncle Feathers Mule Farm. Mule farm? Yes. Are you in? Sure, but dont I need a disguise? Disguise? Heck no! Who would suspect a truckload of turkeys on their way to a farm? I chuckled. We walked downstairs and I loaded Infamous Bob into my truck along with the other turkeys. Off we headed to Uncle Feathers Mule Farm, where I happily dropped off a truckload of rescued turkeys. It was Uncle Feathers job to reinvent them. He might even reinvent them as donkeys.Back home, I sat down to that all-American dinner, hot dogs and potato chips. I looked over at Ayala and Apollo.

Gifford I had already spoken with the police and they didnt believe me, either. I was certain there were voices behind that red church door screaming voices, trapped voices but no one else could hear them. Still, it was generous of the police to drive out here, an obscure part of the countryside where the old abandoned church stood, walk around it and peer into the windows, see nothing and pretend they didnt think I was crazy. I will give them credit for that. But I am not crazy. I did hear those voices. Now that I was alone, I leaned even closer to the door, set my ear against its warm, painted surface and listened. The screams were louder now. I pulled away, frightened. It was then that I noticed some of the red paint had come off. I stroked my ear with my finger and saw the color red. I ran my palm across one of the nail heads and watched as my palm turned red. The door seemed old, painted years ago, perhaps centuries why was it fresh now? I tried to wipe the color off with my other hand but it wouldnt go away. Both my hands were reddish now. I looked at the nailhead and realized that beneath its paint was a tarnished silver color. I rubbed my shirt against it and the silver polished instantly. It shone in the sunlight. It wasnt just a color it was a metal. I ran my hand along two more nailheads that stained my hands and quickly polished them to a brilliant shine. The door, I thought, must be worth a fortune, what with silver nails with heads the size of human eyes. I continued exposing the silver until I became almost reddish in the process and the door almost brilliant in the polishing. It was studded with silver and exploded with light. I even hoped the police would not return, for fear they would want a portion of my discovery. After I had polished every last nail in the door, I turned my attention to the wood. I ran my shirt sleeve along it and saw the red color cover my entire arm. I smiled as I wondered what secret was behind that bright color. You can imagine my surprise when I saw the first faint glimmerings of gold real gold! I bent down to it and stared at its luster. I held my breath. Finally, without shame, without care, I kissed that door, that red door that hid its gold and silver treasure for centuries behind its red color. I kissed it and was proud to have done it. I was sure my mouth was red, because the door had given up its color so easily to me, but it didnt matter. I had found my escape from bills and boredom, from worries and trouble. I had found my Eden, my luxury, my delight. I moved closer to the door, so close that I turned my feet sideways to stand even closer to it. I lifted my arms over my head and held my palms and my entire body close to that red door and leaned into it. I felt its summer warmth roll over me, the warmth of gold and silver bright and blinding around me. I felt it in a rapture. It was when I tried to pull away from the door that I discovered I could not move. Not an inch! Not a millimeter! Not a micron! I was impaled by it, stuck as a fly on flypaper, motionless, my eyes frantic and staring, my one eye held firmly by the door and my other eye in wild surmise over the abandoned fields nearby, the empty dirt road and the placid, indifferent clouds overhead, all quiet witnesses, all unable to help. The eye close to the door watched my arm enter that same red door and dissolve into it, become a part of it. I twisted myself but found I could not move. I began screaming into the air and soon found myself screaming into the door. I suddenly stopped and listened. I had heard those other voices again, the ones that first made me call the police and beg them to listen harder to hear. I was one of those voices now. They were next to, no longer in front of me.

Park Row Books. 368 pages. Trade paperback original, $16.99.Lisa Ungers craft is so astonishing that it makes me want to cry tears of appreciative joy. Tears are also prompted by the harrowing situation of Ms. Ungers main character, Poppy, as she tries to rebound from the hideous murder of her husband Jack. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Poppy blanked out for several days, coming to consciousness in a state of confusion. Her identity has been oddly transformed and her confidence shaken. With the help of a therapist, she has made a lot of progress in the year since Jacks death, but she is frequently tormented by strange nightmares that might be distorted memories. Are bits and pieces of the lost days pressing for recognition? There are also other patches of time she cannot recall. Moreover, she doesnt trust herself to sort out whats real and whats the product of a dream-state. Poppys goals are to fill in the blanks and bring Jacks murderer to justice. Then to pick up the pieces of her life and move forward. But her path to health is thwarted by her abuse of pills and alcohol. She sabotages Dr. Nashs therapy by lying to her. In her attempts to regain control of her life, she resists the overtures of her controlling best friend, Layla. She also resists the overtures of her controlling mother. Poppy needs to be in control; she needs to set limits on well-meaning intrusions on her autonomy. Pathetically vulnerable, she lives in a state of fear, believing shes being tracked by a hooded man who might be connected to Jacks murder. Her attempts at gaining control show courage but also recklessness. Sl owly, ever so slowly, she makes progress. Important secondary characters include Detective Grayson, the NYPD policeman working the murder case, and a Neil, a man who makes metal sculptures. A shadowy figure from Poppys recent past, Neil is clearly an important part of her present. Both are protective of Poppy, but in very different ways and with different motives.

ried life, carries the unexpected strain of doubts about the true nature of her relationship with Jack, a relationship compromised by his responses to her two miscarriages. Poppy and Jack were first and foremost professional photographers. They loved their artform and felt most alive when pursuing the perfect shot. They were adventurous. At some point, they became business people: They lived more predictably and made pragmatic choices. Ms. Unger, through Poppys reflections, suggests that, perhaps without knowing it, they traded their artistic souls for something far less essential to their individual natures and to their relationship. Its a cautionary tale. So, there is a lot going on, including threats to Poppys life, in this gemlike stand-alone novel. Excruciating suspense, all-encompassing intimacy with Poppys chaotic inner state, masterful pacing and exquisite scene-building all serve to elevate Ms. Ungers achievement beyond the genre label of psychological thriller. Revelation follows revelation to a remarkable climax. You dont want to miss it. Lisa Unger is one of those writers committed to appreciating her loyal fans. She does this in a variety of ways, including newsy emails, contests and book giveaways. A bit of special attention followers receive in Under My Skin is the cameo appearance of Jones Cooper, a major character developed over several novels Ms. Unger set in the mysterious upstate New York village known as The Hollows. Like yours truly, these readers will wear a smile of recognition for Ungers special show of gratitude. About the authorLisa Unger is The New York Times and internationally bestselling, award-winning author of 16 novels, including the psychological thrillers Die for You, In the Blood, Darkness, My Old Friend, and more recently Ink and Bone and The Red Hunter. Her books are published in 26 languages worldwide, have sold millions of copies, and have been named Best of the Year or top picks by the Today show, Good Morning America, Entertainment Weekly, Amazon, Indie Booksellers, Goodreads and the Sun Sentinel, to name a few. Her essays have appeared in NPR, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Travel+Leisure. Mrs. Unger lives in Floridas Tampa Bay area with her husband, daughter and Labradoodle. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

That means function is a priority before style. There are no superfluous overhangs or overly flared fenders to add unnecessary length or width. What remains is an urban wonder suitable for parking spaces that would make Fiat 500 owners think twice. The Smart can even fit perpendicularly in many parallel parking spaces (although this is illegal in some areas). While designing a vehicle that can fit so snugly into any place is a big task, the true genius is inside. Small cars are supposed to be a sacrifice, and the Fortwo minimizes that with a bit of visual trickery. It has a tall roof line, full-size windshield, large dashboard area and full-sized bucket seats. The result is a car that feels just as spacious as any other for anyone sitting down and facing forward. Just like the Fortwos name suggests, it makes no attempt at offering a back seat, and theres minimal cargo room. Instead, the designers decided to master one task be the microcar that doesnt feel claustrophobic for the driver and passenger. This has been part of the Fortwos strategy from day one. Whats new is that the city car has decided to keep up with the trendy times, and now its only offered as an electric vehicle. Our tester is the Cabrio model, and a convertible version is what fits into the Florida lifestyle. Smart cars are engineered with Mercedes-Benz and sold through their dealerships. This premium placement supports the drop-top version of the Fortwo starting at a somewhat expensive $28,750. Its currently eligible for the highest federal tax rebate, which makes the actual price more like a $21K. The coupe costs even less, but it comes with less features as standard. Plus, the Cabrio has a nifty electronic folding top that can open the whole roof to the world. For those who want a larger wind-in-thehair experience, the top will continue retracting over the small back end, and the roof rails over the doors can be removed and stored in the tailgate. Our test vehicle could go about 75 miles between full charges, but thats reduced to 55 miles when the air conditioner is running. It makes for a local kind of city car that can occasionally visit the next town over. In fact, while the Smart Fortwo is not intended to be a highway cruiser, it can accelerate quickly to 70 mph and is engineered with enough stability to never mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com
feel too intimidated on the interstate.Its not worth comparing the price of what it would cost to upgrade to larger and longer range EVs. Thats not what the Fortwo is best at competing against. Instead, the argument should be about upgrading from neighborhood electric vehicles into the Smart. The Florida lifestyle includes plenty of small beach towns and communities engineered with traditional-style downtowns. Those of us who enjoy this localized living have probably seen the benefit of those souped-up golf carts. Theyre extremely easy to park because of such a compact size, and they can make an errand run feel like an open-air adventure. The Smart EV has that same appeal. The difference is, those golf carts have a false sense of security that come from doing low speeds in a sleepy beach town. The problem is not the safe habits of the golf cart driver. Instead, its difficult putting faith in that everyone else with real and heavy vehicles will behave correctly. Thats a big gamble, especially when a spouse or a grandchild is along for the ride. For their sake, it seems like an acceptable extra investment to buy a vehicle that gets a four-out-of-fivestar safety rating by the government. Remember, thats a score for real fullsized vehicles. Soon Smart will upgrade the Fortwo electric with a new EQ name and a larger 112-mile range. It still wont be the ideal long-range commuter, but the convertible is the beachy fun machine that offers a real air conditioner and an unparalleled sense of security.

The park is also becoming more popular with humans, which has led to an unsavory consequence: In their constant quest for salt and other minerals, the goats have developed a strong taste for human urine and sweat left behind by hikers and campers. Goats will lick clothing and paw at the ground where people have urinated or disposed of cooking water, making them a nuisance, according to the National Park Service. Popular Mechanics also reports that the increased likelihood of humangoat interactions has park officials worried, especially since a goat gored a hiker to death in 2010. The answer: Park officials are tagging, blindfolding and airlifting mountain goats to nearby Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, which should be more hospitable to their needs.You cant say he wasnt warnedSome people can get pretty territorial about their food. So it appeared in Colleton County, S.C., on Sept. 29, when Ryan Dean Langdale, 19, warned his 17-yearold cousin not to eat his salt and vinegar potato chips. Do not touch my chips, or Ill shoot you, Langdale told his cousin, according to a sheriffs incident report. The Charleston Post and Courier reported Langdale then went into another room, retrieved a rifle and the rifle went off, according to the sheriffs document. Langdale summoned help but told police his cousin had accidentally shot himself while cleaning the rifle. Officers didnt think the story held up: The pathway of the bullet through the victims chest was impossible if he had mistakenly shot himself, said sheriffs Maj. J.W. Chapman. Sure enough, when the victim was questioned after undergoing surgery, he told officers the savory snacks were at the center of the dispute. Langdale surrendered on Oct. 10 and was charged with, among other crimes, attempted murder.Compelling explanationsYury Zhokhov, 41, a factory worker in Donetsk, Russia, was found kneeling in a field in early October with a knife handle sticking out of the top of his head. Zhokhov was conscious, and when questioned by police, he revealed he had stuck the 8-inch blade in himself. He was having trouble breathing through his nose, he explained, and hoped to make another hole he could breathe through. But the knife became stuck, and he couldnt remove it. Odditycentral.com reports doctors at the local hospital were afraid to touch the knife for fear of killing Zhokhov or causing brain damage. It was horrific, a hospital spokesperson told local media. X-rays showed the blade exactly between the two hemispheres of the brain. Specialists were called and Zhokhov survived the surgery without apparent brain damage, although surgeons are concerned about infection.Just kiddingAn alert (or nosy) passerby called police on Oct. 10 after seeing staff through the window of a Natwest bank in Birmingham, England, hiding and cowering under their desks. Officers arrived at the bank in hopes of catching a robber red-handed, but instead were told the workers were participating in a team-building game of hide-and-seek. West Midlands Police Chief Inspector Dave Keen tweeted that, although the incident was a misunderstanding, the citizen made the right call, reported Metro News.

HEA L T HY LIVINGMoving beyond opioids to manage pain SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNIH News in HealthMost people experience some kind of pain during their lives. Pain serves an important purpose: It warns the body when its in danger. Think of when your hand touches a hot stove. But ongoing pain causes distress and affects quality of life. Pain is the No. 1 reason people see a doctor. A class of drugs called opioids is often used to treat pain. One reason, explains National Institutes of Health pain expert Dr. Michael Oshinsky, is that opioids work well for many people. Opioids can stop the body from processing pain on many levels, from the skin to the brain. Because they work throughout the body, he says, Opioids can be very effective for multiple types of pain. But opioids also produce feelings of happiness and well-being. And theyre reinforcing: The more people take them, the more they crave them. This can lead to addiction or continuing to take opioids despite negative consequences. Scientists have not yet been able to develop opioids that reduce pain without producing these addicting effects, Dr. Oshinsky explains. The longer someone takes opioids, the more he or she may need to take to get the same effect. This is called tolerance. Having a high tolerance doesnt always mean youll become addicted. But taking higher doses of opioids increases the risk for both addiction and overdose. The United States is now in the grip of an opioid crisis. Every day, more than 100 Americans die from an opioid overdose. This number includes deaths from prescription opioids. We dont need better opioids, Dr. Oshinsky says. We need to move away from the reliance on opioids for developing pain treatments. NIH is funding research into new and more precise ways to treat pain. Its also working to develop new treatments to combat opioid misuse and addiction.Opioids not always neededOpioids are often prescribed for acute pain. Acute pain is short-term pain the kind experienced after an accident or an operation. But other drugs may be just as effective for acute pain, even after surgery, explains Dr. Dena Fischer, a dental health expert at NIH. Some of these drugs, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, dont require a prescription. People may think that prescription drugs work better for acute pain. But thats often not the case, Dr. Fischer says. Using something other than an opioid first can be especially important to manage acute pain in fields such as dentistry, she adds. Many people receiving opioid prescriptions from dentists are teens or young adults who have never been prescribed an opioid before. Research is starting to tell us that people who receive an opioid prescription as a teenager have a tendency to continue to take opioids for non-medical purposes in the long term, Dr. Fischer says. Health care providers who decide their patient needs an opioid are now being encouraged to give only a few pills at a time. People who receive shorter prescriptions are less likely to misuse their pills by taking more than prescribed or taking them after the pain is gone. This also cuts down the chance that the pills could be taken by others.When pain is chronicManaging chronic pain is more complicated than treating acute pain. More than 25 million people in the United States alone live with chronic pain, which is pain that lasts more than three months. Many things can cause chronic pain. For example, Dr. Oshinsky says, a muscle that was damaged in an accident may heal relatively quickly. But if a nerve was also hurt, it can continue to send pain signals long after the body has repaired the muscle. Other types of chronic pain are driven by brain changes, explains Dr. David Williams, an NIH-funded pain researcher at the University of Michigan. When these changes happen, the brain continues to perceive pain even though the injury has healed. For people with this type of chronic pain, sometimes called central pain, opioids and some other kinds of pain medications can actually make the pain worse. Research has shown that talk therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, can help many people with chronic central pain. These types of therapies emphasize behaving in different ways or thinking in different ways that alter the perception of pain, Dr. Williams explains. Pain is a combination of a sensory and an emotional experience. Cognitive behavioral therapy can also help people with chronic pain manage related health problems, such as problems sleeping, feeling tired or trouble concentrating. This can increase quality Recovery Month celebrates heroes who stand up for mental health, addiction DAVID LAWRENCE CENTERDavid Lawrence Center hosted more than 300 people at the annual Recovery Month Awards Dinner. Guests enjoyed a community resource awareness reception, dinner, a raffle and an awards ceremony that honored outstanding individuals who share their voices to advocate, educate, mentor and help others with mental health and addiction. Every year, DLC joins voices of recovery from across the nation to observe National Recovery Month to promote the message that behavioral health is essential to health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover. The 2018 theme, Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose, and Community, explores how integrated care, a strong community, sense of purpose and leadership contribute to effective treatments that sustain the recovery of individuals with mental health and substance use disorders. Robert Crowe was honored for being an active leader in the recovery community and proudly sharing his 26-year sobriety journey with others. He coordinates groups of volunteers who visit local treatment centers, detox units and jails to spread hope and encouragement that recovery works. He also sponsors and mentors individuals through recovery.NCH Healthcare System President Allen Weiss was honored for his work leading the Blue Zones initiative and helping to make Collier County one of the healthiest and happiest regions with the longest life expectancy in America. In addition to advocating for how to prevent illness, Dr. Weiss is a dedicated treatment partner, working closely with DLC to save the lives of those in crisis. Capt. Beth Jones with the Collier County Sheriffs Office youth prevention and delinquency services division was honored for dedicating her 28-year career to helping troubled kids and teens. She works alongside DLC on a variety of youth-oriented programs and trainings and is a strong advocate for mental health interventions in the schools. Laurie Lyons, a yoga and meditation instructor and co-founder of Open Mind Zen Naples, was honored as a holistic treatment volunteer for providing meditation services for individuals in the DLC Crossroads residential treatment program and in-kind services as prizes to events. A very special, heartfelt lifetime achievement award was presented by the DLC Alumni Association to Nancy Scheffer, who retired in 2018 as a Crossroads behavioral health technician. During her 28-year career, she touched thousands of families battling addiction and left a lasting impression on all who had the pleasure of feeling her positivity and unconditional love and support. Support from people like these honorees is what makes life in Naples so great. We come from a strong community that cares about its neighbors.

Brown, MD, FACSWorld Renowned Cataract Surgeon Founder & Medical Director Dealing safely with painThings you can do if youre prescribed an opioid: Ask if there are ways besides opioids to relieve your pain. Make sure your health care provider knows about all other medications you are taking. Let your health care provider know if you or others in your family have had any problems with addiction, such as with alcohol, prescription medications or illicit drugs. Ask about the risks of taking an opioid. Ask how to take the opioid and how long you should take it. Never use alcohol when taking an opioid. Store opioids in a safe place out of sight and out of reach of children, preferably in a locked cabinet. Dispose of leftover prescription medicine quickly and properly.of life for people with chronic pain. It can also have overlapping effects. Pain processing and sleep and thinking and mood all share the same neurotransmitters in the brain, Dr. Williams says. So, by improving something like sleep, youre also improving pain. Non-opioid drugs can help some people with chronic pain, too, Dr. Oshinsky says. Many of these drugs were first developed to treat different health conditions, such as seizures, depression or anxiety. But they can also change the way the brain processes pain. Some people benefit from devices that stimulate the nerves directly to block pain signals from reaching the brain, Dr. Oshinsky adds. Different devices can work on different parts of the nervous system, from the nerves in the skin to the spinal cord. People with certain types of pain have also been shown to benefit from exercise, acupuncture, massage therapy or yoga.Expanding the optionsThe alternatives to opioids we have now dont work for everyones pain. More non-opioid, non-addictive treatment options could help reduce the number of opioids prescribed each year. Recently, NIH launched the Helping to End Addiction Long-Term Initiative (www.nih.gov/research-training/medical-research-initiatives/heal-initiative) to address the shortage of effective medications for chronic pain and other issues contributing to the opioid crisis. Some of the research funded by HEAL will focus on understanding how chronic pain develops. A better understanding of how acute pain becomes chronic could reveal new treatment targets. Researchers funded by HEAL also hope to learn how to predict who will develop chronic pain from acute pain. This information could be used to guide early pain management, Dr. Oshinsky explains. HEAL will fund research into new treatments for opioid misuse and addiction as well. More options for pain management could help doctors better personalize pain treatment. It could be a little more like precision medicine, where you try to identify what flavor of pain the patient has, and then match the treatments we have available to the needs of that patient, Dr. Williams explains.

In the past year, each has levied massive tariffs on goods imported from the other country. The U.S. even announced it was withdrawing, after 144 years, from the global postal treaty which allowed discounted mail and freight to enter the U.S. from emerging nations like China. And last week, the U.S. Treasury Department announced its list of currency manipulators which many analysts speculated could include China. What is a currency manipulator and which countries were labeled manipulators by the U.S. government? A country may want to have a stronger or weaker currency for a variety of reasons. Many industrialized nations have perused a strong currency strategy because it brings down prices on imported goods, including energy and raw materials, and enables its citizens to therefore consume more. However, a strong currency has the disadvantage of making exports from that country more expensive for potential customers in other countries. On the other hand, many third world and export-driven counties desire a weaker currency, as it enables that country to export goods at a cheaper price and therefore boost goods sold globally. The flip side to this policy is that it makes imported products more expensive and increases inflation. What many in the U.S. government have a problem with in regard to currencies is when certain foreign governments, like China or Japan, artificially keep their currencies low for an extended period of time. They do this by selling their currency in the open market and then buying a foreign currency like the U.S. dollar. Many believe that this creates an unfair advantage to foreign exports coming into the U.S. when American consumers buy these products with artificially strong dollars. But in order to officially be labeled as a currency manipulator by the U.S. Treasury, a foreign government must meet three criteria. First, it must have a trade surplus with the U.S. of at least $20 billion. This simply means the countrys exports to the U.S. must be $20 billion more than U.S. goods imported into that country. Second, the foreign nation must have a current account surplus of at least 3 percent of that countrys GDP. A countrys current account surplus is its trade surplus plus any financial or transfer payments made to that country as well. This statistic basically accounts for any lending or borrowing done by that nation to other nations. And finally, the country must undertake persistent, one-sided intervention in its currency where net purchases of foreign currencies are at least 2 percent of its GDP over a 12-month period. In other words, that nation must repeatedly manipulate its currency substantially. So even though many members of the government believe that China is a currency manipulator, it did not meet the threshold set up by the Treasury Department. In fact, the country has been recently attempting to strengthen its currency as investment capital has been fleeing the country due to a slowing domestic economy and the ongoing trade war with the U.S. However, the U.S. still remains concerned about Chinas huge trade surplus with the U.S., and the Chinese governments policies to grow exports while limiting imports. The Treasury Department did keep China on its currency manipulator watch list, which includes Japan, Germany, South Korea, Switzerland and India. However, no country was specifically labeled a currency manipulator. You can bet, though, that this topic will continue to be at the forefront of the current administration for the foreseeable future.

Know Your Dividend Red FlagsIt can be hard to beat dividend stocks. The best ones not only pay you regularly throughout the year (and increase those payouts over time), but their share prices also grow. Still, just like other stocks, dividend payers are not guaranteed to do right by you. Learn to spot red flags and you may be able to avoid some losses. Researchers Eugene Fama and Kenneth French, studying data from 1927 to 2014, found that dividend payers outperformed non-payers, averaging 10.4 percent annual growth vs. 8.5 percent. Meanwhile, dividends have accounted for 42 percent of the return of the S&P 500 Index between 1930 and 2017, per Morningstar data.Still, every year, plenty of companies reduce or even eliminate their payouts often in times of trouble, when their stock prices are also heading south. Red flags such as extremely high yields, industry headwinds, spotty track records and high payout ratios can warn you to minimize your losses.A huge dividend yield can be due to the stock having plunged in price, with few investors believing in it. If an industry enters a downswing, as happens in cyclical industries and during economic crises, there may not be any earnings to distribute, leading to dividend cuts or suspensions which can turn out to be temporary or permanent. Companies with inconsistent histories of dividend payments can be disappointments especially in a bear market, when external factors may strain their resources. Fortunately, many companies sport long dividend histories. Procter & Gamble, for example, has paid a dividend every year since 1891! A companys payout ratio calculated by dividing the annual dividend by earnings per share reflects the sustainability of its dividend. If a company is paying out more than its making, thats not a good sign, so a payout ratio well below 100 percent is best. To see some promising dividend-paying stocks weve recommended, check out our Motley Fool Stock Advisor service at fool.com/services. Listen to Your SpouseAs a man, I should have known better when my loving spouse said she did not understand why a real estate limited partnership was a good investment for our (very modest) college savings for our daughters and/or future house purchase. But I, of course, in my male wisdom, not only listened to the brokerage salesperson, but also elected to invest in it in my IRA. Well, it was later revealed that my brokerage was misbehaving, and it wiped out many thousands of investors, pushing limited partnerships and suggesting that they were as safe as CDs. I lost the entire $2,000 investment in my IRA. And by the way, I shouldnt have had a tax-advantaged investment in my IRA anyway, as the IRA is already tax-advantaged. You pay your money for some education. I also try to listen to my spouse more. B.H., onlineThe Fool Responds: You learned some great lessons. For starters, some investments are better suited for IRAs than others. Stocks you expect to grow the fastest and securities paying hefty interest or dividends might be good for your Roth IRA, as you can expect not to be taxed on withdrawals. Tax-free bonds, on the other hand, neednt be in a taxadvantaged account. Meanwhile, know that many limited partnerships are fine investments, but they do work a little differently than common stocks, and you should read up before investing. Profitable StorageIf youre looking for solid stocks with dividend yields over 3 percent, real estate investment trusts, or REITs, are an excellent option. Theyre required to pay out 90 percent of their taxable income to shareholders, and many pay 100 percent. One REIT for investors to consider is Public Storage (NYSE: PSA), which has a dividend yield recently over 4 percent. Public Storage primarily acquires, develops and operates self-storage facilities, and it boasts more than 2,400 facilities in 38 states and 228 facilities in western Europe. It generates revenue through rental income from tenants, and it can boost that by raising prices in supply-constrained markets or via higher occupancy rates. On the downside, tenant leases tend to be short-term in nature, which can lead to a more cyclical business. Public Storage offers a lot of stability. Over the past few quarters, its occupancy rate has easily topped 90 percent and its even stronger in the supply-constrained West Coast regions. It also has more market share than the next three largest publicly traded self-storage companies combined. Investors can enjoy its dominant market-share position, thanks to its early acquisition strategy that gobbled up facilities in a highly fragmented industry. People will always need a place to store extra stuff; that demand isnt going away anytime soon. That makes Public Storage well worth considering for longterm investors seeking income. A Reorganized S&P 500QI heard that the S&P 500 recently reorganized itself. What does that mean? A.B., Winona, MinnesotaAThe Standard & Poors 500 index of 500 big companies is adjusted regularly, with some companies being removed from the index while others are added to replace them. For example, Twitter was added to the index in June to replace Monsanto, as Monsanto was being acquired by the German company Bayer and would no longer be a stand-alone company or stock.The index recently underwent a bigger transformation than usual, though, as it changed how it classifies and groups certain companies. Gone is the Telecoms sector, replaced by a new Communications Services sector. The new sector will contain not only companies that provide various communication platforms but also companies offering media content. Some of its components will be Comcast, AT&T, Verizon Communications, Walt Disney, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix and Googles parent, Alphabet. The change was made to better classify companies with operations that span both communication channels and content.The reorganization wont really affect those invested in the overall S&P 500 index, but if youve invested in any funds specializing in various sectors, the holdings in them may well have changed. ***QWhat do you think about investing in companies that have filed for bankruptcy protection? Their stocks look cheap might they not recover and be good investments? R.Y., Strasburg, VirginiaAIts best to steer clear of bankruptcies.Holders of common stock tend to get little or nothing when companies emerge from bankruptcy, while creditors and others might get some pennies on the dollar. These companies also often emerge with new stock, their old stock rendered worthless. Give them some time to perform post-bankruptcy before considering investing. Want more information about stocks?

The 2.4-acre campus features vibrant spaces for work, gatherings and special events as it provides a platform for regional collaboration. By establishing its regional offices at the Collaboratory through a long-term lease with the city, the foundation is providing both stewardship of a valuable community asset and leadership in gathering and galvanizing people, ideas and philanthropy. Just as the depots parallel iron rails once helped redefine the regions trajectory, its renaissance rides converging rails of innovative thinking powered by cutting-edge technology, dedicated community stakeholders and impactful philanthropy a unifying regional effort to advance sustainable social, economic and environmental vitality for generations to come.Physical, virtual innovationThe very notion of the Collaboratory is as much a mindset as it is a geographic location, serving as an organizing principle that extends far beyond its physical walls. Yes, the Collaboratory has a regional home base in Fort Myers with vibrant office space for nonprofit tenants as well as interactive meeting facilities and technology resources for non-tenant participants but, just as importantly, the Collaboratory model is portable and packs the potential to foster complementary synergies among regional stakeholders. We were very intentional with the concept of the Collaboratory as a space rather than a place, said Sarah Owen, foundation president and CEO. Well be taking Collaboratory ideas and energy and events all over the region, and people will be able to connect to us digitally in what is a virtual hub thats geographically unbound. In fact, Collaboratory work was already underway before the building was even completed. In a very real sense, the Collaboratory can be thought of as a living laboratory for community crowd-sourcing, as it seeks to fuel diverse ideas and strategies that achieve long-lasting solutions to the most pressing challenges facing the region. New Market Tax CreditAs with many trailblazing projects, funding is typically one of the most difficult and complicated obstacles to overcome. In partnership with the city, the foundation rose to the challenge with a $10 million New Market Tax Credit deal, a financing vehicle that encourages economic development in distressed neighborhoods. Beyond the NMTC program underpinning the Collaboratorys financing, an added benefit is that its use has spurred other entities to explore tapping into the financial tool, which would further boost the nonprofit sectors capacity to fulfill its varied missions. Taking the LEED Located between Jackson Street and Central Avenue, the campus was designed from the ground up to serve as a model of sustainability best practices. The Collaboratory will undergo a rigorous certification process with the goal to earn one of the highest designations in environmentally responsible building: LEED Gold. Administered by the nonprofit U.S. Green Building Council, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is among the worlds most widely respected green-building rating systems. One of the primary components to LEED certification is water management, an especially crucial issue given that the condition of Southwest Floridas waters is an essential element supporting the economic engine of tourism. Among the myriad eco-friendly design features, the campus was engineered so that 99.45 percent of potential stormwater runoff up to a 30-year storm event will be retained on-site rather than add potential contaminants to the stormwater system. Purpose-driven design Inspired, purposeful work is cultivated by inspired, purposeful space and technology. The Collaboratorys mission is to bring together diverse voices in a collaborative environment, whether inside the facility or through digital connectedness. Within the Collaboratorys flexible-use space, Every design decision reflected its mission and intent, said Dwayne Bergmann of Dwayne Bergmann Interiors. A key facet that empowers regional engagement is state-of-the-art technology. The Collaboratory will be connected to the Florida Lambda Rail, an ultra-high-speed fiber optic network spanning some 1,500 miles in the state. As such, it will have access to all the participating institutions on FLR, from universities and other nonprofits to government entities that are members of the network. This allows the sharing of data and information as well as access to offsite content at speeds that open up new opportunities such as virtual HD classrooms and other remote-learning resources.Taking the long viewThe regional Collaboratory opens a new door of opportunity for Southwest Florida. And like any transformative effort, its poised to be as evolutionary as it is revolutionary. In fact, the very nature of innovation entails a disruption of the status quo and a degree of what if? the answer to which evolves from today to tomorrow and beyond. And thats already happening: sparked by the Collaboratory, other regional entities have begun to ask What ifs? prompting conversations with the foundation about how their own organizations might be able to finance other impactful projects through the New Market Tax Credit program. A game-changing concept that takes root in the region holds the promise of a harvest no one could have predicted, as innovation feeds innovation in a cycle of momentum. Ms. Owen said, I think the vision of whats possible is going to come into sharper focus as more people are at the table to help create that vision. Its going to emerge through the very act of bringing people, ideas and resources together. What weve created is the container for that emergence, both physical and virtual. Were here with the framework to partake in the experience that will create the vision. RAILSFrom page 30VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYMedia representatives toured the eco-friendly design features.

Tour our award-winning, single-family model homes and discover a range of residences to suit your specic tastes and preferences. NAPLES COLLECTIONLondon Bays Watlington illustrates the power of personalizationA custom home should speak to a homeowners personal tastes and preferences. The way they want their home to not only look, but also live and feel. Its about special touches, like that Hermes-framed art piece picked up in Paris, or seaglass-hued color palette inspired by the summer trip to the Amalfi coast. But it also encompasses the way the home flows, and the way it allows the homeowner to do the things that bring them joy, whether thats entertaining, cooking or relaxing by the pool. London Bay Homes Watlington model demonstrates the kind of customization possible through the companys brand promise of Private Label Living. Its a philosophy, a process and a personalized approach to homebuilding. Private Label Living sets London Bay Homes apart from other brands, said Mark Wilson, president and CEO. Its a commitment to our customers that encompasses a complete understanding of who they are and how they want to live. We guide them every step of the way from concept to completion to realize their vision. The Watlington model at 41 5th Street South in Old Naples showcases how that process and its possibilities lead to a spectacular finished product. Situated in close proximity to the shops and restaurants on Fifth Avenue and Third Street South, the custom estate home offers 4,182 square feet of living space designed for entertaining. A flowing, open-concept floor plan includes a formal dining room with seating for eight, three fire features and a great room with a floating media cabinet and multiple conversation areas. Its a great floor plan for entertaining, said Jennifer Stevens, senior design director of Romanza Interior Design, who created the homes interior design. I envision dinner parties being hosted in the dining room amid the glow of its blue-flame glacier crystal linear fireplace. Those dinners can be prepared in a topof-the-line kitchen with dual-fuel range, steam oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator, microwave drawer and refrigerated drawers. The homes connection between indoors and outdoors also makes it easy to take the party outside. The great room flows out to a covered living area and open-air pool and patio spaces. An outdoor kitchen includes a grill, refrigerated drawers and white fusion bluette stone countertops. Fire features provide spots for gathering. Stevens design choices illustrate the kind of custom touches homeowners can incorporate when working with London Bay Homes. At the Watlington, that means materials like Venetian plaster on the dining room walls, wire-brushed ash flooring in main living areas and Calacatta porcelain tile floors and shower walls in the master bathroom. The homes layout blends function with style. Three second-floor guest suites with full baths offer privacy for both visitors and the homeowner. And the homes study can be used as a workspace or an additional guest room, since its been outfitted with a closet and adjoining full bath. Award-winning London Bay Homes has been defining luxury living in Southwest Florida for nearly three decades. Our full suite of services offers complete customization, said Wilson. But most important of all is our Private Label Living process of creating a relationship built on trust. Whether a homeowners dreams are well defined or not quite in focus, the companys Private Label Living philosophy transforms the homebuilding process into a personal experience marked by superior customer service, quality and attention to detail.To schedule a tour today of this exclusive downtown Naples opportunity in Port Royal, call (866) 918-3354 or visit LondonBay.com.

B16 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com 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.

We have so many dining choices in this town, so of course choosing a place is never the problem. But what about choosing who you surround yourself with? Who would you invite to a dinner party if you had the chance to organize the ultimate get together? They could be alive or dead; famous or friend. Who would you gather if you had to choose 10 people to assemble for dining and dialogue? My poor, long-suffering friends; I pose these indiscriminate questions to them all the time just to hear their thoughts. To me, this imaginary guest list underscores whats important to people and where they place their priorities and curiosity. It also might serve as a warning whether I want to accept a dinner invite from them in the future Of course I could fashion a dinner party of the rock stars Id want to hang with (R.I.P., Chris Cornell), the Premiere League players that I follow or just settle on five Charlie Hunnams and five Viggo Mortensens. This might feed my fan girl fantasy. But what Im talking about is the dinner party of my dreams my own Algonquin dinner table, so to speak. I would seat mostly post mortem diners: Eleanor Roosevelt, Maya Angelou, Nelson Mandela, Helen Keller, Katherine Hepburn, the Dalai Lama (No one else would get a word in edgewise, am I right?), Leonardo Da Vinci, Isadora Duncan, Coco Chanel and Thomas Jefferson. My sister always asked me, Who cares? How do you come up with these stupid questions? Its not like its going to happen! Thats true, but whats the harm in imagining? Im grateful to each of these historical figures for shaping my worldview and providing me life heroes. If you believe the adage, If you dont learn from history, you are bound to repeat it, what better way to get the inside scoop than imagining you could ask those who have been there and done that? Perhaps more importantly, my guest list shows me what I value. It shows me those things that I have taken away from this life so far and those people who embody the values, talents, perspective, ingenuity and persistence that I think fleshes out a human life. We are all storytellers. Our lives are stories playing out daily. Conjuring up my dinner party makes me feel like I am adding illustrations to my story and coloring in the pages with the insights of those I hold in esteem. Each of my guests lived vibrantly. Though my daily story will leave no such legacy, I am grateful that each of my guests has interested me. I am grateful that these diverse diners have colored in the pages of my life story with something precious to my human experience. Pose this question to your friends or ponder it on your own, if you feel like it. You dont even have to cook or clean up. Its a win-win! Oh, and Viggo and Charlie if youre listening, the tables set. melaniePEFINISFlorida Weekly Columnist

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 See the full lineup at Naples Boat Mart Unsinkable construction. Legendary performance. Ex ceptional Quality. ON THE WATERAlcohol and boating: Think before you drinkAlmost half of all boating accidents involve alcohol. That should be reason enough to leave alcohol consumption for when you are safely ashore with no plans to travel. Operating a boat while intoxicated is a federal offense, subject to a $1,000 fine. In addition, criminal penalties are as high as $5,000 and may even include jail time. State boating under the influence laws are becoming more stringent. In most states, the standards for determining whether an individual is intoxicated matches its state highway laws for operating a vehicle. Please consider: In most states it is illegal to operate a boat with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or greater. Some states will suspend your boating license or privilege. In some states your driving record could be affected. Your boat could be seized or sold at auction.The effects of alcoholAffects balance Balance is critical on a boat. Simply falling overboard and drowning accounts for at least one in four boating fatalities. Impairs judgment Alcohol reduces inhibitions, causing normally cautious people to try stunts or enter high-risk situations a sober person would avoid. Slows reaction Alcohol severely diminishes your ability to react to several different signals at once. It takes longer to receive information from your eyes, ears and other senses, and still more time to react. Reduced night vision and the inability to distinguish red from green makes the intoxicated night boater an even greater hazard. Boating stressorsStressors, such as exposure to noise, vibration, sun, glare, wind and the motion of the water, affect boat operators and passengers, thus making drinking while boating even more dangerous than drinking and driving. Research shows that hours of exposure to boating stressors produces a kind of a fatigue, or boaters hypnosis, which slows reaction time almost as much as if you were legally drunk. Adding alcohol or drugs to boating stress-factors intensifies affects each drink multiplies your accident risk.Alcohol myth or fact?Myth: Beer is less intoxicating than wine or distilled liquor. Fact: One 12 ounce beer contains the same amount of alcohol as 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor. Myth: A cold shower, coffee, physical activity or fresh air will sober you up. Fact: Cold showers and coffee will only produce a clean, wide-awake drunk. Only your liver can detoxify alcohol and only time can sober you up. Myth: A shot of brandy or whiskey will warm you up. Fact: In moderate amounts, alcohol dilates the blood vessels close to the skin, giving a deceptive glow of warmth. In fact, the dilated blood vessels reduce your bodys ability to guard against heat loss.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYWar: What is it good for? An Iliad retold at Gulfshore Playhouse Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. George SantayanaThis is the one theyre all going to be talking about. Its a knockout play, one that socks you right in the gut. It is so singular, so striking, itll surely wind up on many Best Of lists at the end of season. An Iliad is a modern retelling of that most ancient of tales: Homers story of vain, grasping humans and capricious, meddling Greek gods. Written by Lisa Peterson and Denis OHare, its based on Robert Fagles translation of The Iliad. If the subject matter makes you think, Ho hum, or fear itll be too much like a dry lecture by an uninspired professor, youre underestimating a couple things: the power of story and the magic of theater. Youre also not taking into account the considerable acting skill of Jeffrey Binder, Gulfshore Playhouse associate artistic director, who gives a tour de force performance in the one-man show. He plays the Poet, a character who, like the Ancient Mariner, seems destined to travel about and tell stories of ancient battles until, finally, we learn from our mistakes and stop fighting wars. Dressed casually in a long brown duster, button-down sweater vest and jeans (costume design by Jennifer Bronsted), he steps onstage through a pair of double wooden doors that seem to be an entryway into a castle or rampart. David L. Arsenaults set also appears to be a type of amphitheater, with multiple levels of stone, some with moss growing on them. Its impressive, but I do wonder what this play would have been like on a bare or almost-bare stage (which is how some other venues have staged it). Though just one person, Mr. Binder fills the stage with various characters soldiers, parents, wives, babies, gods flowing back and forth between narrating and acting the story of the Trojan War. He initially beseeches the muses to help him tell this tale once again. You get the impression that each time, it takes a little more out of him, because we dumb humans never seem to learn. Were still as addicted to war as ever. Every time I sing a song, I hope its the last time, he says. But it isnt. He explains that war is entertainment for the gods. Early on, he talks about the hundreds of boats in the harbor, filled with young men. He names the boats and where theyre from and then, taking into account his audience, translates it into terms well understand, listing, instead of ancient Greek cities and towns, places in the U.S., from Boise, Idaho, to Springfield, Ill. Its a clever device that helps us relate to those fighting, that helps us identify with them, because we know these hometowns. In another section as he describes a corpse-filled battlefield, he gives a little oneor two-line description of the deceaseds life, so hes not just a dead body, but a person who had a name, family, interests, a life. Were forced to see the deceased as individuals rather than just the dead. The Poet narrates the Trojan War the way bards did for centuries, telling the tale and speaking directly to our hearts. The story centers on Hector and Achilles, and at times its so bloody that its like hearing an episode of Game of Thrones described in horrifying detail. Director Kristen Coury allows the telling to flow naturally, with peaks and valleys, suspense, and yes, even humor. Modern references to supermarkets, to road rage, to photographs, dont seem jarring at all; theyre just things we know in our own lives that help us relate even more to what were hearing. Its a remarkable feat that The Iliad even if this is just a section of it could be transformed into a 100-minute, one-man play. Mr. Binder draws us in with his storytelling, making it seem extemporaneous, as if hes just talking with us one-on-one. An Iliad is not only about war, but about theater, about stories and telling our stories to each other. By the time the Poet starts listing every single war we humans have ever been engaged in, I had tears running down my face, as the list went on and on and on. The gods have made a mess of things, he says. But we have, too. An Iliad is such a masterful, compelling piece of theater you should be sure to catch Gulfshore Playhouses epic and contemporary production while you can. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOSJeffrey Binder stars in An Iliad.

PUZZLESTD CONVERSION HOROSCOPESSCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent problem involving the health of someone special. But by weeks end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It could all ultimately work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarians creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You enjoy the attention early in the week, but it might be a good idea to opt for some privacy by weeks end so that you can have more time to consider an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You unearth some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what youve learned secret for now. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: Youll find people more likely to offer information if youre discreet when making your inquiries. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Youre probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then its time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Librans looking for romance. Aspects also are favorable for platonic relationships. BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and youre respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you.

What the winning player does instead is to try to work out the proper play as each combination arises. To illustrate, consider the club suit in this deal. South arrives at three notrump and can count seven tricks in aces and kings. Two more tricks are needed, and these can come only from clubs. How should declarer tackle this particular combination to give himself the best chance of scoring two extra tricks? When the deal occurred, declarer won the first trick with the king of hearts, cashed the king of clubs and then led a club toward dummy. When West showed out, all hope for four club tricks evaporated, and South finished down one. Before attacking clubs, declarer should consider the different ways the missing cards in the suit might be distributed. After concluding that any approach will produce at least four tricks if the clubs are divided 3-2, he should turn his attention to a 4-1 break. He might then realize that if a low club is led to the ace first, he can assure four tricks no matter which opponent has four clubs. After cashing the ace, a low club is led toward the K-9. If East follows low, the nine is played, guaranteeing no more than one loser in the suit whether West wins the trick or not. If East shows out on the second club, South takes the king and leads the nine toward the jack to produce four tricks. Finally, if East plays the ten or queen on the second club lead from dummy, declarer wins with the king and returns the nine, again losing no more than one club. With proper play, declarer is thus certain to score four club tricks against anything but a 5-0 break. The safety play guarding against all 4-1 divisions is sure to get him home safely.

GET OUT FOR A GOOD CAUSE Be bigger than the president get out and voteRecently overheard at a cocktail party: I mean, seriously, does anyone REALLY care who Taylor Swift votes for?! Cue the gales of laughter. In an Instagram post a few weeks ago, the 28-year-old pop star from Tennessee endorsed two Democratic candidates from her home state as the vital midterm elections on Nov. 6 get closer. She prefaced her stance by writing, In the past, Ive been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the last two years, I feel very differently about that now.Taylor Swift has 112 million followers on Instagram and we can safely assume that most of them are under the age of 30. Since her post, two things happened. According to a spokesperson for www. vote.org, there was a spike in voter registrations 240,000 new registrants in a 48-hour period (nearly half of them between the ages of 18-29). The other thing was that Donald Trump tweeted something petulant and snarky about liking her music less since her post (because his maturity level is that of a tadpole).Taylor Swift for president? Im not sure about that, but I can attest to the fact that the folks laughing at her at the cocktail party I attended were a.) old enough to be her grandparents, and b.) likely dont have Instagram accounts. I dont care if its Taylor Swift, rapper T.I., or Snooki from MTV theyre all encouraging young people to get out and vote this November and Im grateful. In many of the nations midterm races, the youth vote is what will tip the scales. Remember Parkland? While I realize it was an entire eight months ago, 17 people were killed, and 17 others were injured in a mass shooting barely two hours to our east. Parkland student activists like Emma Gonzalez, Cameron Kasky and others are still touring the country using their voices to get young people to the polls. But according to a recent article in the Sacramento Bee, there are a variety of reasons why its hard to get young people to the polls. Young people dont think their vote makes a difference. Many dont know where to register or where to cast their vote. Lack of confidence in politicians and a disconnect with the political process. The staleness of the two major political parties and the negativity of their message. And while I want to relate to these excuses so that I can help be part of the change I just cant. I felt so differently when I was younger. Ill never forget my first time voting in a presidential election. It was 1984 and I had just turned 20. I dressed up blue skirt, white top and high heels. I curl-ironed my hair and put on red lipstick. This was adulting at its best. I was about to go into that booth and make a difference I felt so important. I wasnt yet old enough to drink at a bar, but I was old enough to help decide the fate of our country. When my candidate, Walter Mondale, and his running mate (the first female vice-presidential candidate) Geraldine Ferrarro lost the election, I wasnt daunted. In fact, it fueled my passion for political involvement even more. I started researching, learning more about state and local elections, I volunteered when I could, I marched. Since 1984, Ive never missed voting in an election whether its for the president or the hospital board Im there and Im making sure my lipstick is on.Theres too much on the line this November for young people, especially the young people of Florida, to become disenchanted. Taylor Swift certainly isnt daunted after Donalds asinine tweet about her, she took to Instagram yet again to let her young followers know about early voting. It makes it so quick and easy to go and cast your vote before November 6 The post was accompanied by a snap of her red, white and blue patriotic pedicure and, as of this writing, was liked by 1,211,909 Instagrammers (including me). Looks like someone is adulting a lot better than the guy in the White House is. stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org 25 minutes is all the time you need for warm light based fat reduction. 239.352.5554 dr-pena.comLocated at Exit 107, off I-75 6370 Pine Ridge Road, Suite 101 Naples, Florida 34119MANUEL PEA, M.D.Board Certi ed Plastic Surgeon Naples First Medispa THE ICE AGE IS OVER! 5 5 6 6

NoThe Oath is a vile, aggressive film. Its about people you would never want to spend time with, and those who suffer in their company. As a satire, it misses the mark and isnt funny. As a dark comedy, it goes completely off the rails in the third act. It wants to be viewed as venting the frustrations of politically polarized Americans in 2018, but in reality it just stokes the fire. At the center of the story is producer/ writer/director/actor Ike Barinholtzs Chris, a liberal in all the stereotypical ways a person can be a liberal. Hes married to Kai (Tiffany Haddish), a notably more levelheaded African-American and proud mother to their daughter Hardy (Priah Ferguson). Its the week of Thanksgiving, and Chris family is coming to their house: mother (Nora Dunn) and father (Chris Ellis), liberal sister Alice (Carrie Brownstein) and her sickly husband Clark (Jay Duplass), and Chris conservative brother Pat (Jon Barinholtz), whos bringing his even more conservative girlfriend Abbie (Meredith Hagner). Aside from varying political views, adding tension is the (unnamed) president of the United States, who has issued a Loyalty Oath he expects all Americans to sign. The oath is a pledge, really, to ones country, though Chris views it as a violation of his rights and refuses to sign. When news reports suggest people are getting arrested and/or are disappearing for not signing the pledge by the Black Friday deadline, Chris antipledge stance grows firmer, even as he learns more people around him have signed the pledge than he suspected. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com

In movies we generally root for the characters who take action to improve themselves, save the day, etc. In The Oath the characters taking action are odious, each so shut off to the other side of the political aisle that he/she is incapable of acknowledging, let alone understanding, another point of view. So were left with only the reasonable peacemakers to root for; unfortunately, they are not engaging characters because they only react to what happens they dont initiate. When you can only like the bystanders, thats a problem. And theres more thats wrong here. Details teased in the beginning of a film often pay off in a more significant way later on. In this case, though, the minutiae is all for naught. Theres little reason, let alone rational thought, behind most of the characters actions. People are so insistently stubborn, insensitive and disrespectful that you end up disliking everyone. Then theres the ending. What was a satire becomes a kidnap/home invasion thriller, which couldnt feel more wrong. Its supposed to be a dystopian vision of what could happen in the future if we stay on our current track, but it plays angry, and forced, for utmost dramatic effect. The introduction of two government agents (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) in the last act completely derails the already fledgling premise, and the film goes quickly downhill from there. A good satire that appeals to all Americans could be made about our current sociopolitical state, and if/when it is, we can hope it will help bridge the partisan divide. The Oath, unfortunately, is not that movie. FILM CAPSULES BY DAN HUDAKFirst Man (Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Corey Stoll) Neil Armstrongs (Gosling) journey to the moon, beginning with his start at NASA in the early 1960s, is chronicled in director Damien Chazelles (La La Land) latest. Its a fascinating story and a good movie, but Armstrong is such a joyless bore that hes sometimes hard to root for. Rated PG-13.A Star Is Born (Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Sam Elliott) Burned out famous musician Jackson (Cooper) discovers a supreme talent in Ally (Gaga), who later becomes his wife. Gagas singing is expectedly impressive, and the love story has real emotional stakes. Its a good movie with multiple options that could contend for the Best Song Oscar. Rated R. Night School (Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish, Rob Riggle) High school dropout Teddy (Hart) encounters a tough teacher (Haddish) when he goes to night school to earn his G.E.D. There are some funny moments, but its only good for a lark nothing special here, which is fine because its not trying to be. Rated PG-13.Lizzie (Kristen Stewart, Chloe Sevigny, Jamey Sheridan) In 1892 Massachusetts, Lizzie Borden (Sevigny) falls for her familys maid (Stewart) while growing impatient with her oppressive father (Sheridan). Its a salacious story that plays as a timid character study, and as a result is dull. Rated R.A 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.

They run from 6:15-8 p.m. every night at the Schein Hall at BIG ARTS. Heres the schedule: Thursday, Nov. 8 Major Jackson, Steve Almond Concert: Alastair Moock Friday, Nov. 9 January ONeill, Stephanie Elizando Griest Main speaker: Joyce Maynard Saturday, Nov. 10 Jill Bialosky, John Dufresne Keynote speaker: Ann Hood In a world where almost anyone with an iPhone and laptop considers themselves a food writer, Michael Ruhlman is the real deal. The best-selling author of more than 20 books, most of them about food and cooking, hes also written cookbooks and co-written some with chefs. Some highlights: His first major book about cooking was The Making of a Chef, detailing how the Culinary Institute of America trains chefs. He followed that The Soul of a Chef then The Reach of a Chef. Hes been a judge on Next Iron Chef and Iron Chef America, has appeared on Cooking Under Fire on PBS and was a guest on two episodes of the Travel Channels Anthony Bourdains No Reservations. His most recent book, released this May, is Grocery: The Buying and Selling of Food in America. And, incidentally, he married best-selling novelist/ memoirist Ann Hood this April. (Novelist Laura Lippman officiated.) Heres an edited version of a conversation with Florida Weekly. FW: I initially thought you were a good cook who also wrote well, but now I realize you started as a writer first, then became a good cook. Youve said that you got carried away by your obsession. MR: I had no intention of learning to cook or becoming a chef or being involved in food. But I was always interested in food and always cooked. I began writing and cooking at the same time, by fourth or fifth grade. I was 10, I believe. After Id written my first book, about same-sex education, I was casting around for another book. Everybody was becoming more and more interested in cooking and chefs. Id written a column about local chefs; they would know things you couldnt get in cookbooks. They all wanted to get into the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, so I thought: why dont I do a book on this? I talked my way into it. You couldnt know what it meant to become a cook. The changes are internal: how you relate to the world, how you handle challenges that you face, how you handle heat, how you just adopt a can-doanything-better-thananybody attitude. You have to, because the work was so hard. I realized I could do the work and write about it. Right at this time, the whole food boom happened. I was living in Cleveland, and went to a barbecue in rural Ohio, and walked out with plane tickets to The French Laundry to co-write Thomas Kellers cookbook. I just got lucky. I was broke, I was unknown, my Making of a Chef hadnt come out yet. It was a real gift of God. Id been working since fifth grade to become a writer. I knew how to write. I was prepared to take advantage of this opportunity. Its a good life lesson: You cant necessarily make opportunities, but you can be ready for them when they present themselves, as they surely will. FW: What are the necessary ingredients for good writing? MR: Reading. And reading. And writing. When youre writing: critically evaluating yourself and using your friends for help in evaluating yourself. I wrote letters to my writer friends. I must have written hundreds. We wrote to one another, and we wanted to impress one another. And we liked writing. I wrote to Blake Bailey hes Philip Roths biographer, highly regarded. We both taught ourselves to write by writing each other. FW: Letter-writing is such a lost art nowadays. MR: It neednt be. People should write emails just as carefully. FW: Are there ingredients that are particular and necessary for good food writing? MR: There are no ingredients to good food writing that dont apply to all non-fiction. Its a matter of the writer and consciousness and translating ones knowledge and love, and conveying it as immediately and directly to the reader as possible. FW: Youre teaching a two-day class in food writing at the Sanibel Island Writers Conference. Can you give us an overview of what youll be teaching? MR: Were going to be talking about good writing and using food to get at it. At my core, I believe exactly what MRK Fisher said: When I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and it is all one. Were going to show how food connects us to the deeper meaning of life, which it surely does. FW: There seems to have been explosion of food writing. Even the food pages in newspapers and magazines are different. They used to be just recipes, or How to Host a Fun Fondue Party. But now they seem much more expansive, with interesting features. Just like the sports section isnt just about scores anymore, and who won. MR: Theyre less about food than whats underlying that food, the story behind that food, how that food got here and why, and what it means. Were also taking food more seriously. Weve trashed our food in this country and it makes us sick. And when something you need to survive starts making you sick, you start to get interested in it. The people, the struggle thats why boxing is so interesting, why tennis is so interesting. Its two people with their skill and knowledge and experience, performing at their peak. Its riveting, its not just stupid sports. FW: But it also seems that anyone who has an iPhone and a laptop can call himor herself a food writer, just put up pictures of what theyre eating and write about it. MR: People think: I eat, therefore I can write about food. We know thats not the case. When people say, I want to be a food writer, how do I become one? I tell them, become a writer first, and then train your focus on food. Its hard. Some people know what theyre talking about and others dont. You have to listen to their style and watch them for a while. Go to the people who write about food for the professional journals. Its hard. Thats why I go to reliable sites such as Serious Eats and Eater, places like that. FW: Youve written books about non-food subjects such as renovating a house, or boat builders. Do you deliberately do that to take a break from food writing? MR: For a long time Ive been distancing myself from being pigeonholed as a food writer. Thats what Im known for and where Ive had my best success. Its how I make my money and it seems to be what Im meant to do. I published fiction, a memoir, and will always do that. I hope to write more fiction. Food is so critical to our well-being, to our lives, that Im perfectly content to write about food. I hate writing recipes, and spend too much time doing it. Im working on a book now. I think itll be called How To Cook: How 10 Meals Can Teach You Everything You Need to Know. Theres a chapter on lasagna, one on how to roast a chicken, another on steak frites. FW: Your latest book, Grocery: The Buying and Selling of Food in America, came out in May. Tell me about it. MR: Ive always been fascinated by grocery stores. And after my dad died, I went in search of a story. I figured out later, once I was into it, that he loved grocery stores so much, (that writing this book) was a way of connecting with him. I had the time and the inclination to explore what I think is a modern marvel. We get this extraordinary range of food, delicious and life-improving, and can get it every day of the year, 24 hours a day, an abundance of food unlike history has ever known. We take it for granted, and I wanted us to stop taking it for granted. I hung out in Heinens, a grocery store in Cleveland. The buildings a beautiful cathedral of food. Its a stunning grocery store, perhaps the most stunning in the world. I was embedded for about a year, maybe longer. They serve a wonderful lamb, so I went out to a big lamb farm in Idaho to look. Its grass-fed lamb. I went to the fish auctions in Hawaii, where theyll get Moonfish overnighted. What an extraordinary thing: this exotic Pacific fish the day before was in the water, and now Im buying it in Cleveland. We take it for granted, but were trashing it. We better pay attention, we better f***ing wake up. Everything I do is a call t o w ak e up, or I hope it is. We need to pay attention. Thats what I want people to do, pay attention. And for writers too: Be awake, keep your eyes open and watch the world, not the mirror. FW: I know you knew Anthony Bourdain, who we lost earlier this year. Youve been on his show. Would you care to say a few words about him? MR: Loyalty, intelligence and humor. The guy was the funniest person Ive ever met, naturally funny. He was one of the smartest and best-read people Ive ever met. Its rare that somebody turns their life around, from being a drug addict to an internationally beloved media star who brought us together through food and travel. I miss him terribly, and it still hurts. The world lost an important figure. He touched so many people. We wont see the likes of him again. Food, glorious food writing COURTESY PHOTOFood writer Michael Ruhlman.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 borhood that had a lot of kids, but not in my age group I would join in a game of tag, but I didnt have that core group of friends. Books were my best friend. I read everything I could get my hands on. I loved with equal passion a book like Anna Karenina and books like The Valley of the Dolls. I just loved books. In her freshman year in college, she read The Great Gatsby. And it changed her life. I could see the different metaphors, the themes, the characters. It opened my mind to literature. I still read popular books, but that book changed me profoundly. She longed to write books of her own. And in 1987, she published her first novel, Somewhere Off the Coast of Maine. Well over a dozen books later, she published The Book That Matters Most in 2016, a novel about a woman whose husband leaves her after 25 years of marriage. To deal with the loss and be part of a community, she joins her best friends book club. Each member has to suggest a book, to name the book that matters the most. It isnt your favorite book, because that would be too many. Its the book that matters the most. It may have been something they read after a loss and it changed them, or they were young and lost and it helped them find their way. The novel grapples with various kinds of loss, including the loss of a marriage, the death of a spouse, the loss of a cherished role in life, the loss of childhood and innocence. Ms. Hood visited 77 book clubs after the novel was released and at least half the participants brought in the book that mattered the most to them, she says. A year later, she published Morningstar: Growing Up with Books, in which she writes about 10 novels and how they affected her at key points in her life. (The books include Little Women, Marjorie Morningstar, The Bell Jar and The Grapes of Wrath.) And, shes just released a young adult novel, She Loves You (Yeah, Yeah, Yeah). Its about a girl in 1966 who wants to meet Paul McCartney. And who wouldnt want to meet Paul McCartney? Ms. Hood will be the keynote speaker at the 13th annual Sanibel Island Writers Conference. Shell speak at 6:15 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10 at Schein Hall at BIG ARTS on Sanibel Island. While those attending the conference must pay for the classes, workshops and panels, the evening events are free and open to the public. Evening speakers include Steve Almond (Candyfreak and Against Football), Joyce Maynard (The Best of Us, Labor Day, Under the Influence), Jill Bialosky (History of a Suicide, The Prize), John Dufresne (Flash! Writing the Very Short Story, Love Warps the Mind a Little, I Dont Like Where This is Going), poet Major Jackson and singer/songwriter Alastair Moock. (See www.fgcu.edu/siwc for more information on the conference, the evening events and presenters.) Ms. Hood will talk about Why Its Important to Write Stories. She notes that her husband, writer and chef Michael Ruhlman, says that, All species eat, all need to sleep, to have sex. But only humans tell stories. It separates us, its what makes us human, she says. We tell stories in order to understand the world in which we live, and to understand the human condition. Its one of the most important things we can do, I think. Writing is tied to a passion for reading. If you dont read, youre not going to be a writer. Its a fact. You have to learn how to tell stories. Some people, she says, think: Ill write a best-seller and be set for life. Theyre writing out of a desire for money and fame, not from a love of literature and language, she says. I dont understand it. Every serious writing student I know is a reader, and every writer I know is a reader. Shes currently working on a collection of essays with recipes called Kitchen Yarn: Notes on Life, Love, and Food. Its due to be published Dec. 5. As my brilliant editor and agent pointed out, I do write a lot of essays about food. Its food as a portal into emotion. She used Laurie Colwins book, Home Cooking, as a model. Shes also been given her own imprint at Akashic Books that will publish books about loss, grief and recovery. The imprint is called Gracie Belle, after Ms. Hoods daughter who died at 5 years old of a virulent form of step in 2002. (Ms. Hood wrote about this in her memoir Comfort: A Journey Through Grief, which was a New York Times Editors Choice Pick and named one of the top 10 nonfiction books of 2008 by Entertainment Weekly.) The imprint will release one or two books a year; the first is Now You See the Sky by Catharine H. Murray, a former student of Ms. Hoods, scheduled to launch Nov. 6. Shes nurtured many memoirs about loss in writing classes and workshops, but publishers balk at the subject matter. They claim, Theyre too sad, people dont want to read this. I find that very short-sighted. Unfortunately, we continue to suffer losses in our life. Theres comfort in books (like this) and also such wisdom. Now You See the Sky is about Ms. Murrays young son dying of leukemia, but its also about Buddhism and family and choices and how to live your life, Ms. Hood explains. Its a beautiful work. Our stories, while specific to our lives, are also universal. And through hearing others, we realize that were not as isolated as we fear. WRITEFrom page 1I was that kid in second grade who was writing newspapers ... I would sell them to my family. I always wrote poems, stories. I grew up in a neighborhood that had a lot of kids, but not in my age group I would join in a game of tag, but I didnt have that core group of friends. Books were my best friend.

HAPPY HOUR 2-6 PM daily at the indoor/outdoor bar, in the lobby, and on the cocktail terrace 221 9th Street South, Naples,FL 34102 CUISINE REVIEWThe stampede starts at the door of Jimmy Ps CharredAmericans love their meat and Neapolitans seem particularly enamored of prime slabs of beef, as evidenced by the herd of steakhouses that seem to thrive in the city. I can count at least a dozen off the top of my head. One especially choice spot for chowing down on steak is Jimmy Ps Charred, which differentiates itself from the rest because its owners, members of the Pepper family, are multigenerational meat cutters w ho have run a beloved butcher shop in town for years before expanding into the restaurant business. That alone makes them different from the others and its noticeable when you walk through the door directly into the butcher shop. There you will see the multitude of meats, seafood and wines they offer for sale to those whod rather cook it themselves at home. At the back of the store is the hostess stand that leads to the cozy and casual steakhouse where reclaimed wooden tables, a few booths, an open kitchen with a bar and barstools fill the room that occupies the adjacent storefront to the butcher shop. While the rooms dimensions and decor may be modest, neither the menu nor wine list suffers as a result. The wine list is surprisingly robust for a place this size, with a wealth of reds, some of which are rarely found even in much bigger establishments. We landed on a 2016 Kosta Browne pinot noir from the Russian River Valley and reveled in its blend of rich berries, hints of licorice and spice and soft tannins, all of which paired well with a meat-focused meal. But first came a basket of house-baked rolls pumpernickel and multigrain with soft butter that had bits of cherry and other tasty tidbits in it. They were delicious and, considering what came later, Id recommend declining the basket when the server offers it. Something else Jimmy Ps does well is seafood. A jumbo sea scallop appetizer ($19) contained two luscious scallops properly seared without, juicy within, atop a generous bed of avocado corn salsa, a pool of cumin crema for dipping and a bonnet of micro greens and edible flowers on top. This was a dish that was as beautiful as it was delicious.If your palate prefers a bit of heat, consider the blue crab samosas ($18), a creative variation on the triangular Indian pastries served as appetizers. These were golden brown, the crusts tender, filled with crab and accompanied by sriracha-spiked chow chow and a pool of hoisin sauce.Even the conventional wedge salad ($9) got a bit of a twist. It contained the classic iceberg lettuce, red and yellow tomatoes and large croutons, along with a generous amount of blue cheese and blue cheese dressing, but instead of crumbled bacon, it was garnished with large smoky lardons that contrasted well with the blue cheese. When it comes to meat, Jimmy Ps thinks big, too. How about the U.S. 41 burger for instance, which, not coincidentally, costs $41? That is not a typo. The reason is that it consists of some ritzy ingredients: 8 ounces of ground Wagyu beef, seared foie gras, triple cream Brie, shaved black truffles and demi-glace. And dont forget the onion and lettuce and a generous mound of crisp fries. This is not the entre to order the day before a cholesterol test. Its also not a burger for those accustomed to the fast-food variety. This creation was big and fat and rich, rich, rich. My companion managed to finish it. I had a few bites, which were decadent and satisfying, but I could not possibly have managed a whole one myself. There are so many options here. There are a number of specialties, which come with protein and vegetables, a novelty in most steakhouses. Or mix and match, as I did, pairing the Colorado French lamb chops ($48) with a Maine lobster tail ($16). The three chops were cooked to order, properly seasoned and seared on the outside but not dried out. The tail had been removed from the shell and placed atop it. It, too, was just right, accompanied by melted butter. My second companion enjoyed a petite filet mignon ($39), done to his liking, and topped with mushrooms and demi-glace ($6). Sides of grilled asparagus and sea salt ($8) and cardamom roasted carrots ($8) were large enough to share and both were good. We had just one complaint about our meal and that was that all of our entrees could have been warmer. They werent cold, but it was clear there had been a delay between the time they were done and the time they were delivered. We could manage but one dessert among us but the pot de crme ($8) proved a great choice. It was a classic in every sense dense, rich chocolate custard topped with a generous mound of whipped cream and a fresh strawberry. Service was excellent throughout the meal. The place was full most of the time we were there and our server was busy, but he stopped by frequently to check on us and make sure all was well. He was knowledgeable about the menu and made us feel well cared for. This isnt the biggest or the fanciest steakhouse around. But if its big flavors and top quality you seek, Jimmy Ps wont steer you wrong. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com Jimmy Ps Charred>> Hours: Lunch served 11 a.m.-4 p.m. daily; dinner served 5-9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 5-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday >> Reservations: Highly recommended >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price: $9-$19; entrees, $22-$100 >> Beverages: Beer and wine served. >> Seating: Booths, conventional tables, at the bar >> Specialties of the house: Steak >> Volume: Moderate to high >> Parking: Free lot >> Website: jimmypscharred.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 1833 Tamiami Trail N., Naples 643-6328SuperbNoteworthyGoodFairPoor For a decadent experience, consider the U.S. 41 burger, with Wagyu beef, foie gras, triple cream Brie, black truffles and demi-glace.
