THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO, JOHN ARTHUR SPENKELINK, A DRIFTER FROM California who had been convicted of murdering a fellow transient at a flophouse in Tallahassee, was strapped into the electric chair at the Florida State Prison in Raiford. Three years before, the U.S. Supreme Court had reinstituted the death penalty by overturning its 1972 decision that held capital punishment to be unconstitutional. Mr. Spenkelink was the first person in the United States to be put to death against his will as a result of the Courts resurrection of capital punishment.

Why you chose to embark on an adventure thats about to hurt you, or leave you adrift, or have nothing at all to do with you? Have you ever asked: Why did I choose this job? Why am I in this swamp? Why did I marry this man? Why am I even here and what difference does my opinion make? The question always springs from exhaustion, doubt or cynicism, and its always justifiable. Life can humble you, after all. But theres an answer and its always the same: Never mind why. Why doesnt matter. Youre here, and you do matter. So do something either worthy or memorable. Get up off your rear end and get going, then all the other questions will answer themselves. Now, less than three weeks before the gubernatorial election between Republican Gov. Rick Scott and former governor and Democratic challenger Charlie Crist, an iteration of that question arises again. This time it goes like this: Why should I vote? These guys are all the same. Theyre *#!**! politicians nothing more than corporate stooges, whatever their party. Its a good question. And merely in the asking an answer is implied: That you shouldnt bother to vote because whether you vote or not doesnt matter. A friend of mine put it this way, and he put it better than anybody else, in a nuanced Facebook post. Stuck in a doctors waiting room, I stared at the TV there: a show about cretins whining about their eight-room house not having a proper pool, and how to remodel or flip it. During commercials, you could see the candidates ads. Never mind what the ads said. The mere fact that they are angling for the vote of the terminally idiotic brain dead zombies watching this crap tells me all I need to know about them, their priorities and values. OK, so some friends of mine are mad at me that Im not choosing either one of these bloodsucking haircuts. Why should I? I dont need some Crist or Obama to bring change to my life. Ive been changing my life for years, stepping further and further away from consumerism & conformity, planting trees, growing food, generating zero trash, blah blah. How about you, friend, acting all holier than thou because you vote Democratic? You do the same things Republicans do. You shop for cheap Chinese junk at Target, you eat at Wendys, but you think youre better because you have an Obama sticker on your SUV. Youre delusional. Were headed for a massive reckoning, and you still put your trust (in) suits speaking to the camera wearing makeup. If I (were) you, Id try to learn some useful postcollapse skills, and maybe get in shape, too.You want change? You do it. Yourself. Now. Gandhi said it best: Be the change you want to see in the world. Its a powerful and cynical sentiment and much of what he says strikes me as true. But it also denies progress, it rejects history, and it fails to recognize the power of each person in a democratic republic. In Gandhis case, one of his first great acts was to campaign in South Africa for the right of Indians to vote. For him, voting mattered more than shooting. No one politician is like another, corporate stooges or not not Abraham Lincoln or Stephen Douglas. Not Herbert Hoover or Franklin Roosevelt. Not Barry Goldwater or Lyndon Johnson or Mitt Romney or Barack Obama. Any more than one farmer, one shop owner, one teacher, or one sailor is like another. But that in itself doesnt matter in politics. Heres why: with few exceptions, voting for the person is less important than voting for the party. The Republican and the Democratic parties have deeply different visions theyre rivers of thought and action that flow through widely different philosophic canyons, if you will. Each will have a distinct but different effect on the outc ome of American history if and when their candidates are elected no matter who they are. Therefore, not voting is like standing in that long-ago soup line and throwing away the food. Its not only not harmless, its shameless. If youre a good conservative, and you believe generally that government gets in the way of merit and progress with too many regulations, with unnecessary taxes, with an overabundance of social programs that users and abusers take advantage of; if you believe that charity and compassion should not be legislated and required of taxpayers but instead given freely by individuals and religious groups to those in need, then it doesnt matter who the candidate is, really. You would do well to vote for the devil if he (or she) ran on the Republican ticket. The party will support that agenda. Conversely, if youre a liberal, and you believe generally that nobody was going to put hot soup and bread in the bellies of those starving people lined up on city streets in 1933, except FDR certainly not the churches or business owners; if you believe that regulating those whose golden rule is not do unto others but make as much as you can as fast as you can, and if you believe that the wealthy and their corporations should pay at least the same percentage of taxes as the rest of us; and finally if you believe that government should always help those too old, too poor, too young, or too unhealthy to help themselves, then it doesnt matter who the candidate is for you, either. If hes running on the Democratic ticket, you should pull the lever for Governor Devil, or maybe President Devil. As for those terminally idiotic braindead zombies? Thats just a fairy tale. Theres no such thing, except on Halloween. t y w h n roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

It sought to establish, in a controlled setting, the answer to this pressing question: How long could Maher and atheist author Sam Harris talk frankly about the illiberalism of much of the Muslim world before actor and director Ben Affleck, also a guest on the show, accused them of racism? The result is in: not very. In fact, almost as soon as Maher and Harris began to discuss how liberals are betraying their own convictions if they dont stand up against social backwardness in the Muslim world, Affleck grew visibly agitated. He could barely contain himself when Harris opined, We have been sold this meme of Islamophobia, where every criticism of the doctrine of Islam gets conflated with bigotry toward Muslims as people. Thats when Affleck interrupted, and soon enough, he was calling Maher and Harris out for their grossness, ugliness and, yes, racism. How does it feel, guys? You might be wondering, Why should I care what the new Batman thinks? The heated exchange was so notable because all three are men of the left in good standing. As a walking embodiment of liberal piety, Affleck is emblematic of liberalisms see-no-evil discomfort with frank truths about the Muslim world. The prelude to the intraliberal fight was the prior weeks show, when Maher pointed out the absurdity of liberals getting exercised over, say, actor Jonah Hill using an anti-gay vulgarism, but ignoring that gays can be stoned in Muslim countries. To count yourself as a liberal, Maher declared, you have to stand up for liberal principles meaning across the board. Maher had zeroed in on one of the more perverse aspects of contemporary politics, which is that self-consciously tolerant liberals often look the other way when confronted with the intolerance of the Muslim world. As militant atheists, Maher and Harris feel free of these constraints; criticizing religion is part of what they do for a living. As a garden-variety liberal, Affleck is subject to all of them and reacted as if two Klansman had wandered onto the set with him. When Maher and Harris pointed out how widespread retrograde attitudes are in the Muslim world, Affleck said they were stereotyping. But the data doesnt stereotype. The percentage of Muslims in Middle Eastern and South Asia countries who say honor killings are never justified is shockingly low (31 percent in Egypt, 45 percent in Pakistan). Support for the stoning of adulterers is more than 40 percent in Bangladesh and 80 percent in Afghanistan. Affleck obviously isnt a public official or a public intellectual. But he represents a dominant tendency within liberalism. Imagine a State Department staffed by less-glamorous Ben Afflecks. Imagine a president of the United States who shares his instincts. This is the Obama administration. Its why, in part, it has always been so reluctant to speak of Islamic terrorism and extremism. Its why the president says the Islamic state is not Islamic. The nation is truly in peril if Bill Maher, of all people, is more clear-eyed than those running our government. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Texas strips women of their health and rightsIn Texas, how far women have come can be measured by how far they have to go. Scores of medical facilities have been shutter ed in Texas, stranding almost a million women hundreds of miles from a health-care facility that they might need. The reason? These facilities provide, among other services, safe, legal abortions. Last week, the U.S. Appeals Court for the 5th Circuit affirmed Texas state restrictions on abortion access, closing 13 more clinics overnight. Overall, 80 percent of Texas abortion clinics have closed since the law went into effect. Imagine the headline: A Federal appeals court in Texas has ruled that 80 percent of gun stores in Texas must close. Self-proclaimed patriots in Texas would be up in arms. But in the Lone Star State, not all rights are created equal. A womans right to choose, her right to terminate a pregnancy, her right to privacy, was settled by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973, more than 40 years ago, in its landmark Roe v. Wade ruling. The Texas Legislature, along with Gov. Rick Perry and Attorney General (and current Republican candidate for governor) Greg Abbott, imposed laws in 2013 creating two significant barriers to the operation of clinics in Texas that perform abortions: First, doctors in the clinics were required to have admitting privileges in nearby hospitals. Second, a series of architectural standards were devised, applicable only to abortion clinics, mandating massive renovations to facilities in order to stay open. Pro-choice activists call these regulations TRAP laws, for Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers. The nonpartisan Guttmacher Institute, a research organization that focuses on reproductive-health issues, reported recently that 6 states have laws or policies that regulate abortion providers and go beyond what is necessary to ensure patients safety; all apply to clinics that perform surgical abortion. Jeffrey Hons, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood South Texas, told me, We are the southernmost and westernmost place where you can find an abortion in Texas, and theres a whole lot of Texas that is south and west of us. Hons clinic is one of three remaining in San Antonio appropriate, perhaps, that these last clinics standing in West Texas are in the home of the Alamo. He described the impact on those women most vulnerable, who now must travel great distances for an abortion: Whenever someone is in one of these far-flung areas and is trying to find a surgery center, the distance she must travel, the immigration checkpoints that she and her partner will go through maybe they are or are not documented and fear driving through these immigration checkpoints these are real burdens. He continued, The psychological burden of knowing I have to leave my home, my family, my town, my world behind to search for this very private, very intimate health care, after very difficult decision making, and now do so in a place where my support network is not around me. The Center for Reproductive Rights, which argued the case in the appeals court, noted that the courts decision has nearly 1 million Texas women facing a minimum of a 300-mile round trip to access their constitutional right to an abortion. We hear stories all the time about people that are having to travel from these areas like the Rio Grande Valley to San Antonio to try and get care, said Lindsay Rodriguez, president of the Lilith Fund. The Lilith Fund provides financial support and education to women in need of abortion care. Rodriguez told me: Overwhelmingly, the people that are most disadvantaged by these laws are going to be people of lower economic means ... people that are dealing with immigration issues. They might be people that, for any number of reasons, have more barriers to health-care access in general not just abortion care, but also health-care access. These longer, more costly trips will result in women delaying the procedure, making it more complex and costly. By closing clinics, the law also will reduce access to contraception, thereby provoking more unwanted pregnancies, perpetuating the demand for abortions. After the appeals-court decision, the Center for Reproductive Rights, joining with other groups, immediately filed an emergency application with the U.S. Supreme Court, seeking to reinstate the injunction against the Texas law. Meanwhile, voters in Texas are heading to the polls. In one of the most closely watched races in the country, Attorney General Greg Abbott is running for governor against Democrat Wendy Davis. The choice couldnt be starker. In June 2013, as a state senator, Davis stood and filibustered this restrictive abortion law for 11 hours, delaying its passage as a thousand supporters gathered, cheering. Davis recently revealed that she had terminated two pregnancies for medical reasons in the 1990s. For her, like women all over the country, this political issue is deeply personal. And its an issue that should unite people across the political spectrum: freedom from government intrusion into the most private decisions of our lives.

I hope youll forgive me, then, for writing about something I could have titled Deadly Serious. Recently, what used to be all fun and frivolity in my conversations with friends has turned to subjects of health and fitness. Not subjects like how you enjoyed your yoga class this morning, but serious issues like dreaded diagnoses that shake all of us to the core. In the past week, two friends learned that they have cancer and another that she will have to undergo heart surgery at some point. Often, these discussions and revelations spark related topics about the general state of health worldwide, the ability of science to better detect illnesses, whether we are consuming more chemicals and how it seems that we can no longer contain deadly diseases like the current outbreak of Ebola. But Ill leave these subjects to the professionals. Rather, Id like to focus on what we all can do to arrive at our 60s and live through our 70s and into our 80s with as much wellness as possible.FitnessWeve all heard how important fitness is, but what I didnt know until recently was that even a small amount of exercise just 15 to 30 minutes a day can yield tremendous results with respect to avoiding heart attacks and strokes. And it need not be intense or vigorous exercise. Just walking at a normal pace brings remarkable health benefits for most people, as do yoga and moderate weight lifting. The key here to me is to choose an activity that you truly enjoy, not something that you see as work. Simply put: If you have to stick with it, you wont do it.DietNo one likes to diet, so dont. This is the latest information coming out, although Im not 100 percent certain of its validity. It goes like this: You can eat what you like, but watch the portions and listen to your body. You know how your bodys going to react to a slab of red meat, so learn to sit down with a smaller slab and savor it rather than wolf it down. Ditto for snacks and treats, juices and alcohol and desserts. The suggestion is that you will be surprised at how much weight you will lose and how quickly, and how much better you will feel (and sleep) if you just starting eating a normal amount of what you like and not the restaurant size.SleepAgain, listen to your body. If youre tired, take a nap or go to bed. If you wake up wide-eyed at 2 a.m., its OK to get up, read, do some light work, whatever. The diaries of countless generations past refer to sleeping at stretches of four to six hours, broken up by an hour or two of activity, then back to bed. This may, in fact, be the normal cycle of sleep for us, particularly as the body ages.Do the checkups, screenings and proceduresWe all know what these are. Just do them, as prescribed and on schedule.Be there for each otherIts been proven that staying engaged with other people and having a few close friends not only enriches life, but extends it. A weekly get-together breakfast Friday mornings, brunch after church, a group walk at dawn, whatever with someone else makes it fun and improves your outlook overall.Be yourselfIn the larger sense, what Im really saying is live your life to enjoy it, not to adhere to how youre supposed to live it. In order to do that, youve got to feel good physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Like anything, its the balance, never the extremes, that matters. Dont get me wrong. I dont want to live forever. But I do want my time right up to the end to be the best it can be, and through it all, I want to feel the best that I can. Thanks for letting me harp a little on the serious side. Next time, Ill write something fun and uplifting. I promise.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 16-22, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYGary Gilmore had in 1977 faced a firing squad in Utah, but Mr. Gilmore who famously said Lets do it! as he was marched to his death did not contest his fate. Mr. Gilmore disdained appeals, passionately embraced his execution and became a cultural curiosity as a result. John Spenkelink, who claimed he killed in self-defense, portrayed himself as a victim of an unfair and capricious legal system. In correspondence from Death Row, he routinely included an axiom that many mistakenly believe to be his last words. Them without the capital get the punishment, he would write. The merits of Mr. Spenkelinks execution were debated at the time, but no one could have known that his case foreshadowed the problems and controversies that still engulf Floridas administration of the death penalty. As the hour of Mr. Spenkelinks execution drew nigh, a disturbing fact surfaced; no one at the prison which had not conducted an execution in 15 years knew how to operate the electric chair. The creaky, three-legged monstrosity, which had been built in a cruel twist of irony by inmates in 1923, was fashioned from oak and bore the grimly cheerful nickname Old Sparky. Flummoxed prison officials sought the services of a consultant from Westinghouse, who was quietly dispatched to Raiford, where he conducted a tutorial on the fine art of death by electrocution. When the execution finally came to be on May 25, 1979, witnesses were allowed to view only the final moments. By the time the blinds were pulled back in the death chamber, the 30-year-old Mr. Spenkelink already was hooded, gagged and secured in Old Sparky. This lack of transparency gave rise to wild speculation that the condemned man fought furiously with guards as he was wrestled into the chair. Rumors swirled that he had suffered a broken neck in the melee and already was dead when the electricity was administered. To quell this tempest, Mr. Spenkelinks body was exhumed and an autopsy performed. The postmortem examination revealed that he had indeed succumbed to electric shock, but the state of Florida was roundly criticized for the clumsy manner in which it had dispatched Mr. Spenkelink. In the years since, the states reputation as a capable and judicious overseer of capital punishment protocols has eroded further. The debate over the death penalty in Florida today centers not so much on the morality and wisdom of the practice itself, although that discussion persists. Instead, the focus most often falls on the incompetence, indifference, demagoguery, penuriousness and ineptitude that the state displays in almost every facet of putting someone to death. Critics of the states death procedures are vociferous, legion and disparate ranging from the American Bar Association to Amnesty International to the Florida Supreme Court to an array of legal scholars and human rights advocates. The only people who seem satisfied with the status quo are the politicians (Democrats and Republicans) in Tallahassee who created the mess and appear to be unwavering in their determination to make things worse. Thoughtful discourse on capital punishment in the legislature is sparse, and many of the states governors have been no better. Tasteless one-liners and crude attempts at gallows humor predominate. Typical of this smirking, flippant attitude toward the ultimate punishment was Tampa Mayor Bob Martinez, who promised in 1986 that Floridas electric bill will go up if the voters made him governor, which is precisely what they did. To achieve real, lasting reform on how we administer the death penalty in Florida, there must be a serious, thoughtful debate, says Duane Dobbert, professor of justice studies at Florida Gulf Coast University. Dr. Dobbert, who has 45 years of experience in the publicsafety and criminaljustice systems, adds, We have not had that debate on the state level, and there is no indication that we will have it anytime soon. It is something that is swept under the carpet. Thirty-two states employ the death penalty, but few make a hash of it as frequently and in so many ways as Florida. THE STATE ELECTROCUTED ITS first inmate in 1924 one year after the construction of Old Sparky. Previously, executions had been the domain of individual counties, most of which favored hanging usually carried out on the grounds of a courthouse as the means of death, the Florida Department of Corrections informs us. From the get-go, the state has pinched pennies. A former designer of electric chairs once observed that when it comes to execution hardware, the state of Florida is very cheap. In 1990, Old Sparky was 67 years old and richly deserving of the scrapheap. This became horrifyingly evident during the execution of Jesse Tafero. Six-inch flames shot from Mr. Taferos head, and three separate jolts of electricity were required to kill him. This gruesome tableau was shrugged off by prison officials as inadvertent human error, and Old Sparky was kept in play. Seven years later, Pedro Medina took his turn in the broken-down death throne. As warden of the Florida State Prison in 1997, Ron McAndrew presided over the execution. Earlier this year, Mr. McAndrew gave a chilling, first-person account of Mr. Medinas demise to Esquire.com. As I told the executioner to turn on the electricity, there was a pop, Mr. McAndrew recalled. Immediately following the pop, there was a plume of smoke that came from beneath the helmet, sort of out in front of my face, with a bad odor. Then there was a long flame. It was a flame that dipped down out of the helmet and in front of my face. It almost hit me. Mr. McAndrew continued, For the next 11 minutes, instead of electrocuting this man, we burned him to death. We literally burned him to death. The Medina spectacle was so grotesque that state officials were besieged by expressions of indignation and disgust. How could this happen again? Whats going on here? Does Florida condone burning people alive? People who wish to commit murder, they better not do it in the State of Florida, because we may have a problem with our electric chair, was the glib response given by Bob Butterworth, the states attorney general at that time. Even then-Gov. Lawton Chiles, long considered one of the states most thoughtful and reflective politicians, dismissed the execution with a tasteless rejoinder. You know, putting someone to death is not the most friendly thing, he said. Behind the scenes, though, Gov. Chiles realized that changes were needed. Two or three days (after the Medina execution) I got a call from Gov. Chiles, Mr. McAndrew said in his Esquire account. He said, Listen, its too bad we had that mess. That really hurt. We gotta get the needle out. Mr. McAndrew said Gov. Chiles dispatched him to Texas to study that states method of lethal injection. The Medina incident attracted international attention and howls of predictable outrage from opponents of the DEATHFrom page 1BUTTERWORTH TAFERO CHILES MARTINEZ DOBBERT MCANDREW MEDINA People who wish to commit murder, they better not do it in the state of Florida, because we may have a problem with our electric chair.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 16-22, 2014 NEWS A9death penalty and assorted other dogooders. But Florida being Florida, after all viewed the imbroglio from its own idiosyncratic perspective. Perhaps only in the Sunshine State could a publicly financed immolation be seen as a boon to the tourist industry. Orlando attorney John (For the People) Morgan the omnipresent, moon-faced television pitchman for his law firm, Morgan & Morgan certainly saw it as such. Just months after the Medina debacle, Mr. Morgan purchased a mock electric chair that resembled Old Sparky at an amusement park trade show and placed it at the WonderWorks attraction in Orlando. Mr. Morgan said he personally opposed the death penalty, and he said he understood why some people found the notion of a faux Old Sparky to be creepy. Still, he insisted it was all in good fun. Ill tell you what people really loved was watching their friends in it, he was quoted as saying. A WonderWorks press release said the chair shocks guests as they strap in for a jolting experience. To more closely replicate Mr. Medinas fiery denouement, the chair emitted smoke. By 1999, Old Sparky after 75 years on the job and 266 executions was gone. Its replacement was christened by a 350-pound murderer named Allen Lee Davis, who was known to the denizens of Death Row as Tiny. Tinys morbid obesity hastened Old Sparkys retirement. It was feared that the age-old death device might collapse under his formidable weight, sending live wires dancing hither and yon across the floor of the death chamber. Prison officials proudly announced that the new electric chair was especially modified to accommodate the condemned mans enormous girth. If Tiny was worried about any possible glitches in his execution, it was not reflected in his appetite. He remained a steadfast trencherman to the very end, consuming an epic last meal of a lobster tail, eight ounces of fried shrimp, six ounces of fried clams, fried potatoes and a quart of root beer. (The state no longer countenances Michelin-style final meals. The cost of these repasts is capped at a fairly generous $40, and all provisions must be purchased locally, the Department of Corrections reports.) To the relief of the execution team, the new, reinforced chair held up just fine. Still, that did not prevent the affair from turning into a bloody mess. For Florida Supreme Court Justice Leander Shaw, it was the final straw. He said that Mr. Davis had been brutally tortured to death by the citizens of Florida. Looking back at Floridas string of bungled executions, Justice Shaw decried them as barbaric spectacles and said they were acts more befitting a violent murderer than a civilized state. To appease critics, the Florida Legislature in 2000 gave death row inmates a dismal choice: lethal injection or electrocution? Unsurprisingly, no one has opted for the latter, thus making Tiny Davis the answer to the trivia question, Who was the last person to die in Floridas electric chair? The move to lethal injection did not solve Floridas problems. In 2006, the execution of Angel Nieves Diaz (aka the Daddy of Death) went hopelessly awry when needles used to administer the deadly chemicals were not inserted properly. As a result, 34 minutes were required to kill Mr. Diaz more than twice the time it should have taken. This is further proof of the broken death-penalty system in Florida, Mark Elliott, executive director of Floridians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, said in the wake of the Diaz fiasco. Florida has no business in executions. AS OF MID-SEPTEMBER, Florida and Texas had executed seven inmates, trailing only Missouri with eight for the most executions this year. Since Mr. Spenkelink was killed in 1979, Florida has executed 88 inmates, which, again as of mid-September, falls behind Virginia (110), Oklahoma (111) and Texas (515!). Last year, Floridas execution total was seven, which was second to Texass 16. Florida seems to be going in the opposite direction of other states, says Richard Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center in Washington, D.C. Instead of figuring out whats gone wrong, Florida only seems interested in (speeding the pace of executions). Mr. Dieter posits that Floridas death policies are based on the politics of the situation, rather than a rise in crime. Yeah, its all politics, says Hilliard Moldof, a Fort Lauderdale defense attorney with extensive experience in capital cases. Whether anyone wants to admit it, the fact is we are still a redneck state. The problem is that no one wants to touch (the reform issue), says Dr. Dobbert, the FGCU professor. Certainly, no one in the legislature wants to touch it. They have wealthy constituents who say, Kill em. We dont want (prisoners) to escape and kill my kids. Those are the people (legislators) listen to. The shortcomings of Floridas death procedures are so egregious that an article in The Daily Beast a few months back contained this remarkable sentence, Florida has joined North Korea and Iran as a major concern for Amnesty Internationals death penalty campaigners. There have been piddling attempts to address the inadequacies of the states capital system. The legislature in 1997 created the Florida Commission on Capital Cases. The ostensible purpose of the commission was to review the administration of justice in death cases. It also served as a repository of information about the death penalty. This proved to be more than lawmakers could stomach. Legislators abolished the commission in 2011 and repealed the law that created it. Gov. Rick Scott signed that legislation, and it was triumphantly announced that the state saved $400,000 by getting rid of the commission. The touchstone for reforming the death penalty in Florida is a withering 2006 study produced by the American Bar Association. The report was written by Florida-based experts. The eight-person ABA team included an elected state attorney, a former public defender and a former Florida Supreme Court chief justice. The study took no stance on the death penalty per se; its lone intent was to make recommendations on how the existing system could be improved. The team has concluded that the state of Florida fails to comply or is only in partial compliance with many of these recommendations and that many of the shortcomings are substantial, the study pointed out. More specifically, the team is convinced that there is a need to improve the fairness and accuracy in the death penalty system. Among the myriad problems outlined in the study were discrepancies in sentencing that were based on race and geography, the lack of adequate defense counsel in many cases, a lack of transparency in the clemency process, the DIETER SHAW DIAZ DAVIS MORGAN SCOTT COURTESY PHOTOThe Florida Supreme Court unanimously upheld the Timely Justice Act, which speeds up the process of scheduling executions for Death Row inmates. General facts>> Means of execution:In January 2000, the Florida Legislature passed legislation that allows lethal injection as an alternative method of execution in Florida. Florida administers executions by lethal injection or electric chair at the execution chamber located at Florida State Prison. The three-legged electric chair was constructed from oak by Department of Corrections personnel in 1998 and was installed at Florida State Prison in Raiford in 1999. The previous chair was made by inmates from oak in 1923 after the Florida Legislature designated electrocution as the of cial mode of execution. (Prior to that, executions were carried out by counties, usually by hanging.) >> First executed inmate:Frank Johnson was the rst inmate executed in Floridas electric chair on Oct. 7, 1924. In 1929 and from May 1964 to May 1979 there were no executions in Florida.>> Witnesses:The department relies on the Florida Press Association and the Florida Association of Broadcasters to select 10 of the 12 pool reporters who may witness an execution (two places are always reserved for the Associated Press and United Press International-Radio). >> Death Watch cells:A Death Row cell is 6-by-9-by-9.5-feet high. Florida State Prison also has Death Watch cells to incarcerate inmates awaiting execution after the Governor signs a death warrant for them. A Death Watch cell is 12-by-7-by-8.5-feet high. Men on Death Row are housed at Florida State Prison in Raiford and Union Correctional Institution in Raiford. The women on Death Row are housed at Lowell Annex in Lowell.>> Meals:Death Row inmates are served meals three times a day: at 5 a.m., from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Food is prepared by prison staff and transported in insulated carts to the cells. Inmates are given sporks with their meals and they eat from the provided tray. Prior to execution, an inmate may request a last meal. To avoid extravagance, the food to prepare the last meal must cost no more than $40 and must be purchased locally.>>Visitors:All inmate visitors must be approved before visitation is allowed. Questions regarding an inmates visiting day(s), visiting hours, and special visits should be directed to the Classi cation Of cer responsible for the inmate at the inmates assigned facility. Questions may be sent by letter, email or by telephone. Members of the news media may request Death Row inmate interviews through the Department of Corrections Communications Of ce at (850) 488-0420. The inmate must agree to the interview and the interview will be non-contact.>> Showers:The inmates may shower every other day.>> Security:Death Row inmates are counted at least once an hour. They are escorted in handcuffs and wear them everywhere except in their cells, the exercise yard and the shower. They are in their cells at all times except for medical reasons, exercise, social or legal visits or media interviews. When a death warrant is signed the inmate is put under Death Watch status and is allowed a legal and social phone call.>> Mail, Magazines & Entertainment:Inmates may receive mail every day except holidays and weekends. They may have snacks, radios and 13-inch televisions in their cells. They do not have cable television or air-conditioning and they are not allowed to be with each other in a common room. They can watch church services on closed-circuit television. While on Death Watch, inmates may have radios and televisions positioned outside their cell bars.

Meland Dr. Jensen Dr. Carr90 Cypress Way E, Suite 20, Naples, FL 34110239-596-5771 E x p e e r i e e n c e e th e D i e r e e n c e A10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 16-22, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYimposition of the death penalty on people with severe mental disability and persistent and widespread confusion among jurors in capital cases. The ABA team emphasized that Florida is the only state in which a jury can recommend a death sentence based on a mere majority (7-5) vote. All other capital states, except Alabama, require a unanimous vote. Alabama, however, insists on a super majority vote of at least 10-2 when imposing a death mandate. In 2005, the Florida Supreme Court addressed this issue and urged policymakers to revisit unanimity in capital cases. Then-Gov. Jeb Bush said the question was definitely worth considering and counseled the legislature to consider the courts suggestion. Per usual, Floridas lawgivers have refused to confront the unanimity matter or any of the other recommendations set forth in the ABA study. (The Florida Supreme Court, though, did take it upon itself to modify jury instructions in death cases, as recommended in the ABA study.) In place of substantive reform, lawmakers last year cranked out a controversial piece of legislation known as the Timely Justice Act, which aims to speed a condemned prisoners journey to the death chamber. The act requires the clerk of the Florida Supreme Court to alert the governor when an inmate on death row has exhausted his initial state and federal appeals. The legislation compels the governor to sign a death warrant for such an inmate within 30 days. The governor is further required to order the warden at the Florida State Prison to schedule an execution within 180 days. The average stay on Floridas Death Row (about 13 years) is nearly two years shorter than national average (roughly 15 years). Proponents of the TJA presuppose that quicker executions will enhance the death penaltys deterrence factor and also save the state money. Dr. Dobbert says anyone arguing deterrence is muddling facts. To say (the death penalty) is a deterrent is simply false, he says. There are enough studies out there that show it is not a deterrent. This is because most murders are crimes of passion, impulsive. As to costs, Forbes magazine examined the economics of the death penalty and determined that trials of capital cases are more expensive and take much more time to resolve than those in which a sentence of life in prison without parole is sought. Moreover, the magazine noted that it costs more to house death penalty prisoners. This assertion was supported by a report released in February by The Kansas Judicial Council, which studied the costs of housing a death-row inmate and found that they were about double the amount spent on a prisoner in the general population. The ACLU contends that sentencing someone to death is three times more expensive than sentencing them to life without parole. The TJA cleared an initial legal hurdle in June of this year when the Florida Supreme Court unanimously upheld the measure. Justice R. Fred Lewis opinion said, in part, that the TJA does not directly restrict or regulate the procedural mechanisms of the judicial process because it does not alter the timelines of capital postconviction proceedings. During the legislative debate on the TJA, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fort Walton Beach), who sponsored the bill in the House, said, Only God can judge, but we sure can set up the meeting. Later, after Gov. Rick Scott had signed the legislation, Rep. Gaetz took to Twitter, where he wrote, Several on Death Row need to start picking out their last meals. Hyperbole aside, it is unclear how the TJA ultimately will affect the 388 men and five women who currently await execution in Florida. Mark Elliott of the Tampa-based Floridians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty says the legislation may be more symbolic than substantive. He points out that the clemency process still applies, which means that the final decision remains in the hands of the governor. The New York Times took a look at the TJA and concluded that (Floridas) indisputably defective death penalty system is made more horrifying by attempts to rush inmates to execution. (O)ne would wonder why the governor signed the bill in the first place, Stephen Harper, a professor at Florida International University and an expert on the states death laws, told the News Service of Florida.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 16-22, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYPENALVER LINDSEY MOSEY There is no doubt in my mind that the Timely Justice Act will lead to innocent people being executed ... I learned firsthand that the justice system does not have a secure error margin. Herman Lindsey, the 23rd of Floridas 24 exonerationsDEATHFrom page 10nothing more than (Gov. Scott) kowtowing to his constituency without any substance. Florida leads the nation in the number of condemned inmates who have been exonerated and freed from death row, which troubles those who oppose the TJA. Since 1973, there have been 146 exonerations nationwide, and Florida has accounted for 24 of them, the Death Penalty Information Center says. Foes of the TJA fear it will dramatically increase the odds that innocent inmates will be executed. Herman Lindsey was the 23rd of Floridas 24 exonerations. Mr. Lindsey was convicted and sentenced to death in 2007 for the murder of an employee at a pawn shop in Broward County. The Florida Supreme Court unanimously overturned the conviction in 2009, and Mr. Lindsey was set free. In tossing out the conviction, the justices said that the prosecution could not place Mr. Lindsey at the scene of the crime and that all of the states evidence was circumstantial. The evidence here is equally consistent with a reasonable hypothesis of innocence, the opinion stated. Speaking by telephone from Pompano Beach, where he now lives, the 41-year-old Mr. Lindsey who has a substantial history of arrests and convictions for serious criminal offenses says his initial reaction to the guilty verdict in the murder case was disbelief. I was wondering how in the world this happened, he says. I wasnt even there. There is no doubt in my mind that the Timely Justice Act will lead to innocent people being executed, he continues. I learned firsthand that the justice system does not have a secure error margin. Although he was exonerated, Mr. Lindsey says the murder conviction remains on his record, making it nearly impossible to secure employment. I can explain all day that I was exonerated, but that murder conviction still shows, he says. I know what people are thinking. They are wondering if I really did it. They are wondering if I just got lucky on appeal. I understand their thought process. So, getting a job, or even a place to live, is rough. I cut grass, pick up cans, do whatever I need to do to survive. Mr. Lindsey has sought financial compensation from the state for his stay on Death Row, but he says his claims have been denied because of his lengthy rap sheet. The exoneration did not convince everyone of Mr. Lindseys innocence. In a statement given to the now-defunct Florida Commission on Capital Cases, David Frankel, the prosecuting attorney in Mr. Lindseys case, said, I doubt anyone connected with this case would argue loudly for Mr. Lindseys actual innocence and deny that he got away with murder. Seth Penalver also was exonerated while awaiting execution. Mr. Penalver was charged with participating in a home invasion in Miramar in 1994 that resulted in three murders. His first trial ended in 1998 with jurors deadlocked 10-2 in favor of conviction. Mr. Penalver was tried again in 1999, and he was convicted this time and shuttled to death row. The Florida Supreme Court reversed that conviction. Mr. Penalver was tried a third time in 2012 and found not guilty of all charges. Hilliard Moldof, Mr. Penalvers lawyer, believes his client might have been executed had the TJA been in force. Mr. Moldof, who spent 18 years working on Mr. Penalvers case, says that something like (the TJA) can really put (possible exonerations) in jeopardy. Mr. Moldof says Mr. Penalver, like Mr. Lindsey, finds it difficult to land a job because of the murder conviction. But, he says, Mr. Penalver has stayed out of trouble. Hes blended back into society. The attorney stoutly maintains that Mr. Penalver was wrongly convicted and did not commit the murders that were laid to him. As in Mr. Lindseys case, some do not believe that exoneration automatically confers innocence. Following Mr. Penalvers acquittal, a sister of one of the victims told a reporter, This guy is a murderer, and they let him out. In the case of Frank Lee Smith, though, there is no disputing that an innocent man was condemned to death. In 1986, Mr. Smith was convicted of raping and murdering an 8-year-old girl in Fort Lauderdale. Gov. Bob Martinez signed a death warrant for Mr. Smith in 1989, but a stay kept him out of the electric chair. Mr. Smith died in prison in 2000 from pancreatic cancer. He had languished on Death Row for 14 years. Eleven months after his death, DNA testing results conclusively proved Mr. Smiths innocence and identified the true murderer as Eddie Lee Mosey, a convicted serial killer and rapist. Although the tide runs swiftly against those advocating reform or outright abolition of the death penalty, Mr. Elliott of Floridians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty professes to be hopeful. One encouraging sign, he says, is that more conservatives and libertarians are having second thoughts about capital punishment. Because the legislature is unwilling to discuss or consider even rudimentary reforms and because there is no public clamor demanding that it do so, The New York Times echoing the views of many sees little cause for optimism. In an editorial published last year, The Times declared, The flaws in Floridas (death) systemcannot be fixed.

Cleveland Ave. Outdoor Styles Contemporary Tropical Bionic shoesPolice in Japans Kyoto Prefecture raided a shoe manufacturer in July and commandeered a list of about 1,500 purchasers of the companys signature tosatsu shoes shoes with builtin cameras. Investigators have begun visiting the purchasers at home to ask that they hand in the shoes (but, out of fairness, said they would not cause trouble for customers who could produce a legitimate reason for needing to take photographs and video by pointing their shoe at something). The seller was charged with aiding voyeurism and fined the equivalent of about $4,500 under a nuisance-prevention law. The entrepreneurial spirit Doris Carvalho of Tampa, is raising venture capital to expand her hobby of crafting high-end handbags from groomed, recycled dog hair (two pounds worth for each bag). With investors, she could lower her costs and the $1,000 price tag, since it now takes 50 hours labor to make the yarn for her haute couture accessory. Among the suggestions of the Brisbane, Australia, company Pets Eternal for honoring a deceased pet (made to a reporter in September): keeping a whisker or tooth or lock of hair, or having the remains made into jewelry or mixed with ink to make a tattoo. Overlooked was a new project by the Houston space-flight company Celestis, known for blasting human ashes into orbit (most famously those of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry). Celestis, working with a California company, will soon offer to shoot pets remains into orbit ($995) or perhaps even to the moon ($12,000). The continuing crisis Ontarios top court rejected Bryan Teskeys complaint in August over how Roman Catholics continue to be discriminated against by the laws of British royal succession. Even though Ontario (along with many Commonwealth countries) recently removed some aspects of bias (ending the ban on the royal familys marrying Catholics), Mr. Teskey pointed out that Canadian Catholics still do not have a fair shot at becoming king or queen (although Mr. Teskey did not claim that he, personally, had been a candidate). Names in the News: (1) One of the three suspects in an August arrest for making fraudulent purchases at a Jupiter, Fla., shop: Ms. Cherries Waffles Tennis, 19. (2) The president of the Alabama Public Service Commission (who invoked prayer in July as the most effective way to fight federal restrictions on coal-fired power plants): Ms. Twinkle Andress Cavanaugh. (3) The investigator for the Ohio state auditors office who was ordered by his supervisor in July to end a romantic relationship with another government official: Jim Longerbone. Venezuela, already in a recession, suffered a particularly cruel blow (according to a September Associated Press dispatch from Caracas) with the recent shortage in availability of breast implants for its beauty-obsessed senoritas. Restrictive currency controls are limiting enhancement surgeries from the 85,000 performed last year and, according to a local joke, will force Venezuelan women to start developing their personalities. (However, according to leading surgeon Dr. Daniel Slobodianik, when potential patients are told their preferred size implant is back-ordered, many merely choose the next-largest available size.) But Its About Safety, Not Money: On the same day in September, Washington, D.C., and New York City made traffic-camera announcements, with Washington declaring a revenue crisis and New York revealing that just one speed camera in Brooklyn had earned the city $77,550 in a single day. The District of Columbia had projected $93 million in annual camera income, but estimated it would collect only $26 million, while New York City, which has many fewer cameras, was marveling at the 1,551 tickets the Brooklyn camera zapped on July 7.

Not valid with any other discount.

Scientists must eliminate peanut allergens below a certain threshold for patients to be safe, says Wade Yang, an assistant professor in food science and human nutrition and member of UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. If Mr. Yang can cut the allergens from 150 milligrams of protein per peanut to below 1.5 milligrams, 95 percent of those with peanut allergies would be safe. Its challenging to eliminate all peanut allergens, he says, because doing so risks destroying peanuts texture, color, flavor and nutrition. But hes using novel methods such as pulsed light to reach an allergen level that will protect most people. Mr. Yangs study is published online in the newest issue of the journal Food and Bioprocess Technology. He cautions that he has done peanut allergen experiments only in a laboratory setting so far. He hopes to eventually conduct clinical trials on animals and humans. Dr. Shih-Wen Huang, professor emeritus in the Department of Pediatrics and head of the Pediatric Allergy Clinic at UF Health, is familiar with the UF/IFAS research and has outlined more steps in the peanut allergen research. The first is to see if the allergic antibody in the serum of peanut allergy patients will still bind with the residual allergy protein from the refined peanut products. The second is to see if the refined peanut extract would elicit skintest reactions in peanut allergy patients. The third step would be to conduct a double blind, placebo-controlled test to see if patients develop allergy symptoms after eating the refined products. I am pleased to see their work is progressing well, Dr. Huang says. However, more challenges are waiting until the final products are accepted from the public, especially the patients with peanut allergies. Two years ago, Mr. Yang was using his technique on peanut extract. Hes now testing it on the peanut itself. In his 2012 study, he removed up to 90 percent of the allergic potential from peanut protein extracts. This process proves that pulsed light can inactivate the peanut allergenic proteins and indicates that pulsed light has a great potential in peanut allergen mitigation, he says. About 1.9 million people, or 0.06 percent of U.S. residents, are allergic to peanuts, according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health. Reactions can range from skin rashes to anaphylaxis, which can be fatal. Currently, the best way for those allergic to peanuts to stay safe is to avoid them, according to the NIH. Many people carry epinephrine injectors that help offset their allergy symptoms until they reach a hospital. In the latest study, Mr. Yang and his colleagues applied the pulsed ultraviolet light technology to whole peanuts. That makes the findings more useful, because peanut processing usually starts from whole-peanut roasting, after which roasted peanuts are either packaged to sell as whole peanuts or made into peanut butte r. The latest study moves one step closer to the actual production, he says. We all constantly have to improvise when life throws curve balls. Improv comedy techniques can help decrease the stress of dealing with such difficult situations. Learn more at Managing Stress with Improv Comedy, a workshop presented by improv actor and licensed clinical social worker Margot Escott from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31, at Unity of Bonita. Improv techniques are a fun and healing medium to help people tackle conflict and other tough issues because they allow people to be fully in the moment and go with the flow. After all, everyday we use improvisation in our conversations with others; we dont rely on a script, and we dont have to try to be funny. The concept of, Yes, and (always accepting the ideas of others) is the first rule of improv. The second is that there are no wrong ways to improvise. Ms. Escott has practiced psychotherapy in Naples for 30 years and for the past 25 years has lectured locally and nationally about the healing power of humor and the importance of laughter and play. She teaches improv techniques to children and adults and performs with Improv Anonymous at the Centers for the Performing Arts of Bonita Springs. Registration for the two-hour workshop is $20. Unity of Bonita is at 28385 Imperial Parkway in Bonita Springs. Sign up by calling Ms. Escott at 434-6558 or emailing email@example.com. Learn how to ad lib your way through stressNCH strives for 100 percent participation by staff for flu shotThe Hippocratic Oath that health care professionals live by First, do no harm applies not only to our patients but also to ourselves. And at no time during the year is this truer than in flu season. We ask every NCH employee to get a flu shot by Nov. 30 or to wear a facemask when within 6 feet of a patient. In this initiative, we join with 400 health care institutions across the country that are protecting patients, their families and each other as they immunize those who can inadvertently and innocently bring additional illness to those who are already hospitalized. Flu is a wily adversary. Because strains of the virus vary yearly, the flu vaccine is only about 70 percent effective. Nonetheless, by protecting a good portion of the community through immunization, the spread of any communicable disease is greatly diminished. Epidemiologists refer to this community immunity as herd immunity. This same phenomenon offers protection for those few who choose not to get flu shots, perhaps because of an allergy or for religious reasons. Herd immunity protects populations against measles, mumps, pertussis and other contagious diseases. In the recent past, NCH has had an 88 percent flu shot participation rate overall among physicians, employees, students and volunteers. Our goal in protecting those we serve is to have 100 percent participation among everyone who comes near a patient, be they an employee or visiting worker. Influenza is among Americas most pervasive diseases, causing 226,000 hospitalizations, 36,000 deaths, 100 million workdays lost and 32 million absentees every year and resulting in nearly $7 billion in lost wages. It affects 20 percent of our population. Flu vaccine can reduce hospital admissions by 75 percent in people over the age of 50. According to the Centers for Disease Control, however, only 46 percent of Americans chose to get vaccinated against the flu last year, despite the recommendation from the CDC that everyone over 6 months of age should receive the vaccination. The CDC also especially recommends that pregnant women receive the flu vaccine. Helping yourself while helping our community is good for everyone. Serious side effects from the vaccine are very rare, approximately one in 1 million. More commonly, the only side effect is a minor sor eness and rash at the injection site, which disappears on its own in a short time. NCH provides free flu shots for all employees and physicians on the medical staff at convenient locations and times. As we help the members of our Collier County community live longer, happier, and healthier lives, we can also help ourselves do the same. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org

MARTY BECKERUniversal Uclick Dental disease affects an estimated 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats by the time they are 2 years old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. Dental problems are about more than bad breath and ugly teeth: Dental disease puts pets at risk for other complications, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and other life-threatening conditions. By the way: Dogs have 42 teeth, humans have 32 and cats have 30. Veterinary students are more likely to struggle with depression than are medical students. Kansas State University found that during the first year of veterinary school, 32 percent of veterinary students showed symptoms of depression compared to 23 percent of medical students. The majority of veterinary students are female, which could play a part in higher depression rates, since national studies show women are two to three times more likely to suffer from depression than are men. In 2011, Guinness World Records named the dog with the longest ears. Harbor, an 8-year-old coonhound, has a left ear measuring 12.25 inches long and a right ear measuring 13.75 inches long. The previous winner was a bloodhound named Tigger with a 13.5-inch left ear and a 13.75-inch right ear. Q&A Q: I am moving with my pets to an apartment. The last time we moved, the dog was fine, but the cat went missing. We found her in our old neighborhood, but theres a freeway between the new place and the old this time. How can we keep her safe? via emailA: The best way to move with your cat is to confine him before and after moving day in a safe room. Choose a room where your cat isnt going to be disturbed, and outfit it with food and water, a litter box, a scratching post, a bed and toys. Confining your cat not only reduces his stress, but also prevents him from slipping out, which is a danger at both the old home and the new. As youve experienced, your cat could easily become scared, take off and get lost, even in his familiar neighborhood, if he gets disoriented. Your cat should be confined in his safe room the day before packing begins, moved to his new home in a carrier, and then confined again in his new safe room until the moving is over, the furniture arranged and most of the dust settled. Trying to force a scared and stressedout cat to do anything he doesnt want to do is hazardous to your health. After you arrive at your new home, dont pull your cat out of his carrier. Instead, put the carrier in his safe room, open the carrier door, and let him come out into the room when he wants to. After hes a little calmer, you can coax him out with some fresh food or treats if you want. But dont rush him and dont drag him out or you may be bitten or scratched. When you have the rest of the house settled, open the door to the safe room and let your cat explore his new home on his terms. If your cat has been an indoor-outdoor pet, moving is the best time to convert him to indoor-only, because he wont fret about territory he never had. The majority of dogs and cats show signs of dental disease as young adults. PET TALESDental issues plague our pets Pets of the Week>>Aires Amore is a neutered, 8-year-old Siamese.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 16-22, 2014 NEWS A27 1892 Trade Center Way Naples, Florida 34109 countertopsnaples.com239.431.8394We are loaded with granite and need to reduce our remnants. You pay only for the fabrication. Pick any level 1 from hundreds of in-stock choices, and the material is FREE! THE DIVA DIARIESTaken aback by the earlier and earlier arrival of the snowbirdsWell, that escalated quickly. I seriously missed the part in the past few weeks when ALL of the snowbirds descended on our little corner of Florida in one fell swoop. I was so taken off guard Ive concluded that they came in the night, sneakily and stealthily and then, last Wednesday morning, their leader sounded some sort of high-tech whistling device that only Midwesterners can hear and, BAM!, they all got into their cars, made their way to U.S. 41 and headed straight to Costco, their unofficial headquarters, where they bought in bulk, gassed up their SUVs and feasted on a plethora of free food samples and called them lunch. Im not mad, mind you just taken aback. You see, when its hot and humid and not fall in Southwest Florida, the up side to not getting to enjoy pretty leaves and autumn breezes is that we have no traffic, no long lines and no sense of urgency. The quiet of September and October used to be our little reward for a nearly endless summer; these days, however, our reward time is getting shorter and shorter. Ive lived here a long time, and back in my day, the winter residents didnt arrive until, well, winter. They spent Halloween, Thanksgiving and often even Christmas and New Years with their families up north. They migrated south gently and gradually. But now theyre scurrying down here like speedy little bunnies. I dont get it. Why wouldnt they want to enjoy the season of gourds and hoodies and fuzzy socks? Curious about this, I texted a girlfriend in Minneapolis who told me that theyre not getting much of a fall this year, that the weather is fast-forwarding from summer straight to winter. She even contended with snow flurries recently. Meanwhile, family members in Ohio have reported cold, wet weather and Facebook friends in Michigan are posting selfies in earmuffs and mittens. Obviously, the snowbirds have no interest in gourds or my quiet time. Theyre here. Again, Im not mad. All of a sudden a bunch of friends who were looking for jobs are getting hired (theres that sense of urgency I mentioned). And I understand full well that the influx of northerners seeking sunshine is how weve paid our bills for over a century. For me, the realization came last Wednesday around 3 in the afternoon (usually such a non-eventful hour), when I decided to make the short drive to my neighborhood Publix to pick up a rotisserie chicken. The usual sixminute drive took 20 minutes and I had to park in Sarasota. Once I got there, chickens were at a minimum, and long lines were at a maximum. Friends have reported other signs: Florida license plates are dwindling and northern license plates are everywhere. A buddy had his heel clipped with a cart at The Home Depot. A friend who has a long commute reports an increase in right-hand turns from the left lane. And so on. While heat, traffic and the increased workload that comes with this early season phenomenon might get you down, fret not. Just look at the sparkly side: ONLY 10 MORE SATURDAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS.

Maybe you are already back or are on your way and if so, drive safely, and bring your appetite and a sense of culinary adventure. Here is a sampling of some of the latest venues to arrive on the gastronomical scene in Southwest Florida, but first some food for thought. There are more than 38,000 restaurants in the state, a 1.2 percent increase from last year, a modest but steady gain. The number of new places to eat has been on the rise in the past five years, as tracked by the commercial real estate firm Investment Properties Corp. Collier County had a net gain of 15 new eateries (the total number of new places minus those that closed), a 1.7 percent jump over 2013, in the fiscal year ending June 30. Lee County netted 36 eateries, up 2.6 percent. Numbers for Charlotte County were not available, although we found fresh offerings there as well, part of a trend toward growth after restaurant numbers started to decline in the recession.

BRAUN-bbtn, tbEXPERT REPRESENTATION IN NAPLES SINCE 1984 COMPANYWIDE DOWNINGtFRYE REALTOR IN 2011 & 20131 Internationally speaking, U.S. housing prices are relatively reasonable The recovery of the U.S. housing market has been strong for several years, and now there is debate whether it will falter. Others think that the most recent fade in activity is really a fakeout and the real estate bull has far to go. Sometimes, U.S. real estate investors perceive the market in an Americancentric frame of mind. We have a tendency to evaluate real estate relative to where prices once were in the U.S. And that is somewhat useful; certainly when the peak prices are taken out as then, with peak prices met and exceeded, there will be no more sellers looking to just get their original entry price out of the deal. Besides looking at real estate through the glasses of yesteryears prices, U.S. real estate can also be viewed in an international perspective. How is it doing compared to other countries real estate markets? The International Monetary Fund collects a lot of international real estate data, as it is concerned that the last monetary crisis began with real estate. The next one might begin there as well. Real estate has a way of causing a lot of problems when it is on a serious unwinding. The potential crisis need not begin on U.S. land, as the runaway real estate market that next implodes might well be in China or Hong Kong or Singapore or the UK, as those are countries touted for their real estate gains. Not that the IMF is sounding the alarm. And not that the IMF has figured anything out. But it is collecting data to see if anything can be prevented if it gets bad, and it cant figure when bad is happening unless it has data. The U.S., in comparison to other countries, is not hyperventilating. By most measures, it is normatively priced and would have a long way to go to get relatively overpriced. Here are the IMFs findings: Following a post crisis stagnation period, global housing prices have risen in seven consecutive quarters. The country with the strongest recent annual gain was not China or Hong Kong, which are in fourth and second places, respectively. The Philippines had the strongest annual advance and beautiful New Zealand came in third place. On the low end, India suffered the biggest loss in pricing a percentage drop even greater than Greece, Italy and Cyprus, and most investors would have thought anything could be worse that real estate in those countries The IMF attempted to answer the question for each country: was their real estate too pricey? And it chose two measures to answer: household income relative to prices and rental income relative to prices. Again, the answers are surprising in that U.S. housing is conservatively priced relative to U.S. household income. There were only a few countries in which the ratio of prices to income was more conservative: Japan, Korea, Germany and Estonia. Canada, New Zealand, France, UK, Australia and Belgium were countries in which home prices were very severely extended relative to incomes. Relative to rents, U.S. housing is not overpriced. Canadian prices were the most overvalued, followed by New Zealand, Norway, Belgium, with UK not far behind. Based on those metrics, it is hard to imagine the U.S. having a housing price retrenchment and more easily price declines might occur in Canada and New Zealand, where incomes and rents do not support valuations.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Have the Odds In Your FavorInvesting is far from a game, since your hard-earned dollars are at stake. Still, there are valuable investing lessons we can draw from poker: Have an edge. In poker, youll do best when playing against those who are less skilled than you, who are using poor judgment or who are exhibiting tells. In investing, your edge is learning more than other investors and not succumbing to emotions such as greed or fear. You dont have to play every hand. Waiting for a long-shot hand will usually disappoint you, while something like a pair of kings gives you a much better chance of seeing a return on the money youre wagering. In investing, youll usually do better investing in solid and predictable performers that you can buy for a good price, rather than investing in shaky long shots. Seek great, growing companies at attractive prices. Dont be afraid to pass, or get out. In both poker and investing, youre faced with continually changing information. The best poker players and investors are those who not only make the most accurate analysis of the available information, but also use that analysis to make good decisions. Understand why people are betting against you. When you invest in a company in the usual way, expecting it to rise, youre said to be long in the stock. There are those who are short, too, who expect it to fall. It pays to consider their views because sometimes theyre right. Go all-in selectively. Top-notch poker players have run through a lot of mental math to determine that the odds are heavily in their favor before they make a big bet. If your all-in investing moments are restricted to times when the market is trading near or below its longterm average valuation, then you can shift the odds of market-beating returns further in your favor. Its rarely smart to go all-in on a single stock, though diversify away that risk. Have patience. Wait for the best investment opportunities, when youre convinced the odds are in your favor. The Sawtooth ShapeMany years ago, I bought 1,000 shares of a small oil company because its stockprice graph had an unusual sawtooth shape. Contrary to the adage of buy and hold, Ive sold increments of the shares over the years and have more than tripled my money. I havent found a stock with a similar wave shape since. J.S., Homer, IllinoisThe Fool Responds: You were engaging in technical analysis there, which most of us at Fool headquarters avoid, as its focused mainly on stock-price movements instead of the health and prospects of the underlying company. We prefer fundamental analysis, which examines growth rates, competitive advantages, financial health, management candor and skill, and so on. You may not have found another similar wave shape, but there have been gobs of great investments over the years, available for those who read up and do some research.Meanwhile, we do prefer to buy and hold, as long as a stock seems healthy and growing and isnt very overvalued. That doesnt mean we wont sell if we need some cash, or want to buy an even more compelling long-term investment. Curing Your PortfolioImagine a drug that doesnt just treat a terrible disease, but cures it in most patients. Thats hepatitis C drug Sovaldi. The stock of its maker, Gilead Sciences (Nasdaq: GILD), has been surging. Gilead is a Goliath in HIV treatment, with five different medicines that could hit billion-dollar blockbuster status this year. Its Atripla and Truvada are top drugs prescribed for HIV in the U.S., and Gileads HIV drug sales totaled more than $9 billion last year. It has an approved cancer drug, too Zydelig, tackling chronic lymphocytic leukemia and indolent non-Hodgkins lymphoma.The companys multibillion-dollar hepatitis-C drug franchise is fattening up Gileads balance sheet. Since December, Gileads cash hoard has jumped from a bit over $2.5 billion to more than $9.5 billion exiting the second quarter. Thats largely due to Sovaldi, which costs $84,000 for a 12-week course of treatment and generated more than $5 billion in the first half of 2014.Biotechnology stocks are not for the faint-hearted. They can be volatile, as their fortunes are tied to drugs whose patent protections expire over time, and to drugs in lengthy development processes that dont always end up approved for sale. Still, risk-tolerant investors should consider Gilead. Its huge and growing well, and with a recent P/E ratio in the mid-20s, its appealingly priced. (The Motley Fool has recommended shares of Gilead and owns shares of it.) Founded in 1971 by a guy with $3,000 and a good idea, Im now a leading provider of payroll, human resources, insurance and benefits outsourcing solutions for smallto medium-sized businesses. Based in Rochester, N.Y., I employ more than 12,000 people, but I prepare more than 200 million paychecks annually for my clients employees. I boast 580,000 payroll clients, and touch one in 15 private-sector U.S. workers with my payroll services. I also service about $22 billion in retirement-plan assets for workers. I rake in about $2.5 billion annually. My name sounds a little like a cereal. Who am I? (Answer: Paychex) Add Stocks for PerformanceQIm invested in a bunch of mutual funds. Should I invest in some individual stocks, too, for additional diversification? L.L., Naples, Fla.ADiversification is important in a portfolio. If you have too much of your assets in one holding or sector, you can get hurt badly. Some mutual funds alone can provide sufficient diversification, as theyre invested in several hundred different securities. (Note that many mutual funds are very similar to each other, offering more duplication than diversification.)The main advantage of adding individual stocks is to possibly boost your portfolios performance. If a stock holding appreciates in value, it can make a significant difference in your portfolio. Lets say you invest 5 percent of your money in Sisyphus Transport Corp. (ticker: UPDWN). If it doubles, your portfolios value will increase by 5 percent. If you instead own Sisyphus through a mutual fund, where it represents a fraction of a percent of the funds value, its surge will make less of a difference.You need to know what youre doing when you select stocks to buy, though. You can learn more at fool.com/how-toinvest and investopedia.com. If you dont have the time or interest, consider just sticking with low-cost broad-market index funds that automatically mirror the stock markets performance.***QWhat are government securities? B.H., Watertown, Wis.AAlso called Treasuries, theyre debt investments, ranging from bills (maturing in less than a year) to notes (maturing within one to 10 years) to bonds (maturing in more than 10 years). Backed by our government, theyre viewed as ultra-safe, with little risk of default which is why they offer relatively low interest rates. You can buy or sell Treasuries via many brokerages or at treasurydirect.gov. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us a a s I o n e d s, r o n g m n g t s e an wi t i n t h th e U.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 16-22, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY upwards. Really 2007 and 2008 were tough years, and 2009, but when you get to 2010 you can see the trends are improving, said IPC principal Craig Timmins. The trend includes places like Culvers, the Wisconsin-based burger and custard chain. And there are singular local establishments, some of which you will find in these pages. SS HookersA few years in the making, the newly built SS Hookers sits at a unique vantage point in historic Punta Rassa. The restaurant and seafood market, which is something of an ode to anglers, overlooks the Gulf of Mexico, at the southernmost edge of the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River. SS Hookers is Sandy Stilwells newest venture following a string of well-known local eateries on Sanibel and the mainland. Out of all of them, this is the most exciting, Ms. Stilwell said of opening her eighth restaurant, in part because of the challenges that came with designing and constructing a building at an historically and environmentally sensitive location. From the waters edge, Fort Myers and Bonita beaches, Sanibel and Pine islands, and on a clear day even Naples come into view. The dcor will include custom-made yacht furniture, and reflect local history, with pictures that include famous tarpon fishermen as well as Punta Rassas roots in the cattle ranching industry. The food will have a Cajun flair, and include breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night service and bar, as well as boxed lunches ideal for anglers and beachgoers. Bring in your own filleted catch of the day, and the chef will cook it for you. The location will also include a gift and bait shop, and a seafood market. As for the name, it refers to hooking fish, mostly, and reflects the restaurants serious intention and lighthearted side a place to unwind after a day on the water or enjoy a family dinner. The name is edgy but it intends to be all about fishing, Ms. Stilwell said. Its kind of a play on words, but its fun. SS Hookers is at 17501 Harbour Point Drive. Turn right just before the Sanibel Causeway tollbooth. Call 466-5377 or visit sshookers.com Fathoms Restaurant & BarHusband and wife partners Timothy and Meredith Hoffman came to Cape Coral from Nevis, an island in the Caribbean Sea where they also operate a hotel. They opened Fathoms (formerly The Joint) in September at Cape Harbour, bringing along Chef Ben Voison, who works alongside Chef Fabrice Deletrain from The Joint. They kept the rest of the existing staff, and customers favorite menu items as well, while adding a few new twists and updating the dcor. We knew we wanted to sort of freshen up the place inside but we wanted it to have the same feeling as it always has, because it was a very successful restaurant prior to us taking over, Ms. Hoffman said. Fathoms offers casual waterfront dining and nightly specials, with a strong emphasis on sourcing from local suppliers, a philosophy the Hoffmans brought with them from the islands. They acquired the property in July. It was the right place, the right opportunity, the right time, she said. In the next few months, they also plan to reopen Run Agrounds, a coffee and gelato shop next door. Fathoms Restaurant & Bar is at 5785 Cape Harbor Drive. Call 542-0123 or visit fathomrestaurant.com.Cass Cay Restaurant & BarAt Burnt Store Marina, Porto Bello was a mainstay for more than a decade. This summer, two old friends from Connecticut, a seasoned restaurateur and a retired U.S. Air Force pilot and aviation executive, gave the waterfront property a complete makeover. Now its a steak and seafood house, the interior redesigned with a nautical theme that includes a huge saltwater aquarium, and a newly rebuilt bar and kitchen. The new owners, Brian DeCaro and Bill Kelley, renamed it Cass Cay Restaurant & Bar, after their daughters. The layout features a more formal dining room in back, a sports bar in the middle, and a large covered deck outside. This is going to be one of the coolest restaurants in Southwest Florida, Mr. Kelley said. Mr. DeCaro is behind a number of restaurants such as Baang Caf & Bar in Connecticut. After Mr. Kelley retired from the Air Force early this year, they discovered the marina and, stopping there for lunch, he decided he wanted to move to the area. Cass Cay Restaurant & Bar is at 3200 Matecumbe Key Road. Call (941) 637-0083. The Chapel Grill The steepled building across from Cambier Park in downtown Naples is not a place of worship, but diners prayers may be answered anyway in the form of tender short ribs or citrus mahi-mahi. In fact, the building was a Baptist church that was built in the 1940s, and although still church-like, hasnt been used for that purpose for years, said owner Stephen Fleischer. He opened last season, closed this summer for improvements, and plans to reopen the doors on Friday, Oct. 17. Our first season was unbelievable, he said busier than expected. Mr. Fleischer was a chairman of the board at a large insurance company in New York before coming to Florida. After his first restaurant failed, he looked for a new venue and had eyed the old church for some time, wondering if it was going to be demolished or sold to someone else. And I was driving by one day and sure enough there were guys walking around with clipboards, he recalls, which spurred him to buy it, converting the space into the casual fine dining Chapel Grill. This season, customers favorite items will remain on the menu, while five of the least-popular items have been replaced. Its really good food, Mr. Fleischer said. I think thats why people come back. The Chapel Grill is at 811 Seventh Ave. S. Call 206-4310 or visit thechapelgrill.com The Colosseum Little Italy closed last year after nearly 30 years in business. But owners Vinny Ricigliano and Mike Shapiro have moved right across the street in Naples with their new venture, The Colosseum. At the much larger venue they can serve their customers favorite dishes, entertain diverse crowds with a variety of entertainment, and rent it out for larger events such as weddings or graduation parties. The Colosseum will retain about 80 percent of its old menu, as well as its longtime bartender, Donny. It had a soft opening in early September and is planning a grand opening for Halloween night. Were trying to make a place that appeals to a much broader clientele, said Mr. Shapiro. The restaurant will also retain its popular happy hour from 3-6 p.m. with appetizers such as tempura shrimp and fish tacos. For dinner, packages will include soup, salad and an entre. Later at night, the bars and music will cater to a younger crowd. Among the nightly entertainment (every day but Sunday), a jazz trio is scheduled to play on Tuesday evenings and Wednesday is Irish night. We want it to be the place, a destination point, Mr. Shapiro said. The Colosseum is at 2059 Tamiami Trail East. Call 774-6060 or visit the colosseumnaples.comMeredays BrasserieWhen space opened up at Esteros Coconut Point, Charles Mereday jumped on the chance to turn it into his third restaurant. The reason that we moved quickly is because the market is changing so fast, where the market was pretty slow and dormant in Southwest Florida, its really on fire now, he said. The space at Coconut Point (formerly The Grillroom) allowed him to open Meredays Brasserie without the more costly option of building out a new space from scratch. Unlike Meredays Fine Dining and Alto Live Jazz Kitchen, both in Naples, his new venue is styled after a French brasserie. (It is) a little more polished than a bistro, but still extremely approachable, he assured, with its traditional focus on craft beer and a relatively small wine list. Meredays opened quietly in September with executive chef Joe Pittman leading the kitchen in presenting an a la carte menu. I wanted to open in September for the opportunity to work through the bugs, work the kinks out while its still slow, but its been really really good, he said. Much busier than I anticipated for September. I can only imagine what its going to be like in season. Its going to be huge. Meredays Brasserie is in Coconut Point at 23161 Village Shops Way. Call 949-9466.A la carte Some other new developments in local dining include The Turtle Club in Punta Gorda, a fine dining establishment downtown, on West Marion Avenue, reopening on Oct. 12. In Naples this fall, DAmico & Partners plan to open a steakhouse and gastro pub called The Continental on Third Street South, where Handsome Harrys used to be. The Kearns Restaurant Group opened gangster-themed Capones Coal Fired Pizza this summer and a new steakhouse, Prime de Leon, arrived downtown as well.

Wood Properties shows there are only 3,749 golf memberships available in the main country club communities of Southwest Florida. The project encompassed 53 country clubs in Naples, Bonita Springs and Estero. Golf memberships for those clubs total 22,728. Most of the clubs surveyed are real estate communities; six are golf only, with no homes around the course. John R. Wood Properties COO Dottie Babcock says the firm undertook the survey due to a concern about golf membership availability in the future. This is a very active year, she says. According to the survey, only a few clubs have a membership waiting list, but Ms. Babcock says the agency expects many more may reach that status during the next 12-18 months. As for the supply, only two new country club communities have started construction during the last two years; THIS RENOVATED, MOVE-IN READY Moorings home features hardwood floors, lots of natural light, neutral interior and views out the mitered glass window to the pool and backyard. Perfect for entertaining, the great room floor plan revolves around the kitchen with neutral granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a double oven, walkin pantry and a breakfast nook overlooking the backyard. Step outside and lounge by the pool or read a book under the covered deck and appreciate the verdant landscaping and sense of tranquility this home offers. Additional features include crown molding, a metal roof, two A/C zones, a covered lanai with water and electric hook-ups for a future outdoor kitchen or wet bar area, and several fruit trees on the oversized lot. Moorings residents can purchase an optional membership to Moorings Beach Park, which provides private parking, bathroom facilities, a park area, and a covered chickee hut. Optional membership is also available to the nearby Moorings Golf & Country Club. Karyn and Rowan Samuel of The Samuel Team of John R. Wood Properties have the listing for $1,199,000.

Fiddlers Creek on the way to Marco Island has a second golf course planned for some future date. Other than the three mentioned above, Ms. Babcock says, it is unlikely there will be many new clubs in the future, at least not anywhere close in, due to lack of large land parcels appropriate in size for a country club. John R. Wood Properties maintains a website, TeeUpFlorida.com, that provides potential buyers with a variety of information about various country clubs (number of holes, course designer and membership fees, etc.). The site shows that current golf initiation fees generally start around $15,000, although a few courses are below that level. The ones below are often developer controlled communities, where the developer is offering a special golf membership rate if you also buy a home in that neighborhood. The history of golf memberships in the area is interesting. Prior to 2005, many clubs had very liberal return policies for equity memberships. The recession put an end to that, however, as large numbers of members attempted to cash in their equity memberships. This caused severe cash outflows at the clubs, somewhat similar to the bank runs or outflows of cash during the Great Depression. As a result, most clubs changed their membership structure and policies in order to ensure their financial viability going forward. A variety of membership types are available in todays market, although most do not use what are termed heavy equity memberships. In other words, the arrangement often involves an initiation fee in which only a portion, sometimes as low as zero, will be returned when the buyer terminates the membership. In operation since 1958, John R. Wood Properties has 400 agents and staff in 14 offices serving the areas from Marco Island northward through Sanibel/Captiva.

Equal Housing Opportunity.The new Mashta HouseProminent Key Biscayne property on the market for $60 million TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMKey Biscayne is a wonderful place for a vacation home or a fulltime residence. Entrance to the key is off of Miamis Brickell Avenue, less than a mile to downtown, South Beach, Coconut Grove and Coral Gables and all they have to offer by way of shops, restaurants, entertainment, beaching, boating and fishing. When Florida became a U.S. territory in 1821, Mary and William Davis of St. Augustine purchased Key Biscayne for $100, thinking that the government would build a lighthouse on the southern tip of the island. The Davises sold just the tip of the island to the government for the lighthouse for $225. The island went through several changes of hands through the years. It was a coconut, banana and pineapple plantation until the advent of World War II, but it wasnt until 1951 when the first real development began. It was mostly small tract homes that sold for about $10,000. These same homes are now selling for more than $1 million, just so they can be demolished and replaced with mega mansions.In the 1900s, access to Key Biscayne was strictly by boat. In 1917 John Matheson, a part owner of the island, built Mashta House as a place for fabulous parties (his main home was in Coconut Grove on a ridge overlooking the bay with Key Biscayne in the distance). For his soirees on the key, the cream of society would arrive in their yachts and moor in his deepwater cove. It is said that frequent guests during the Roaring 0s include Carnegies, Mellons and Vanderbilts.Though the glamorous Moorish-style mansion was finally torn down in the 1950s, it wasnt until 1991 that another mansion was built on the site. Now for sale, the new Mashta House sits on its private and gated 1.63acre peninsula, with the enviable protected cove and 360-degree water views. The five-story, 11,588-square-foot house has six bedrooms, eight baths, an elevator, attached garage and swimming pool. Possibly Key Biscaynes most prized address and steeped in Old Florida history, its offered at $60 million.

ADVERTORIALTwelve months of milestones at Talis Park in North NaplesTalis Park in North Naples was originally conceived as one of the finest golf club communities in the country. Today, Talis Park is being envisioned and built with the financial strength and operational expertise of Kitson & Partners, a private real estate investment and development company founded in 1992 and based in Palm Beach Gardens. With its portfolio of retail, commercial and residential properties, the Kitson team is committed to making a true showcase of Talis Park. Major milestones that occurred at Talis Park over the past twelve months are indicative of the strength of Kitsons commitment. In the past year, significant amenities were completed, including the first phase of the New Fashioned Vyne House Clubhouse that features Fionas Market Caf, the Core Fitness Center, and the Esprit Spa, and construction of the grandest amenity at all, the 26,470 square feet under air second phase of Vyne House, was begun. Kitson anticipates holding a soft opening of Phase II in December, 2015 and a grand opening in January, 2016. Two new neighborhoods introduced during the past year have expanded Talis Parks luxurious estate and single-family residential product offerings. An agreement with a major, publicly traded builder was finalized for the construction of 90 on the view penthouse-style condominiums in fifteen mid-rise buildings literally just steps from the outdoor dining and lounge experience at the communitys Casa Cortese. Infrastructure enhancements included the extension of Talis Park Drive, the installation of new roadways and utilities in the new neighborhoods, the creation of new lakes, and the re-lining of the propertys existing lakes. A central cornerstone to Kitsons vision of Talis Park is the notion that choice matters. Talis Parks residential product choices grace eight distinctive neighborhoods featuring a refreshing assortment of Spanish Eclectic, Caribbean Colonial, and Italian Renaissance architectural designs. Residences are priced from the $700s into the millions. Kitson has responded to the luxury homebuyer markets demand for completed, ready to occupy homes with Talis Parks Resident Ready Program. As a result of the Resident Ready Program, homes at every stage of the construction continuum are now available at Talis Park, including completed models, completed unfurnished residences, and homes at varying stages of construction. The Resident Ready Program allows buyers to choose when they wish to engage in the buying process and the degree to which they prefer to be involved with feature and finish selections. The luxury homebuyer markets embrace of Kitsons vision at Talis Park has been equally significant. Talis Park continues to redefine the Naples country club experience. Kitsons contemporary interpretation of luxury living is uncomplicated. Talis Park is the Club reconsidered and invites a select group of members to come as they are and enjoy a New Fashioned, active, health-oriented lifestyle on their own terms. The communitys breathtaking tableau includes landscaped boulevards featuring magnificent gardens, groves of trees, citrus orchards and hiking trails. Talis Park is anchored by the lakes and Sea Dwarf Paspalum fairways and greens of the Talis Park Golf Club golf course. One of just two Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed courses in the world, the course is ranked #91 in Golfweeks 2014 Best Residential Courses and consistently ranked among the top 20 courses in Florida. Talis Parks neighborhoods offer a park-like setting with golf course, preserve and water views, or a maintenancefree environment within walking distance of the communitys Grand Piazza that includes Vyne House and the Great Lawn. This In the Park or In the Village approach reflects Kitsons commitment to creating a community where every aspect of country club living is relevant to the residents daily lives. One of Talis Parks new neighborhoods, Firenze, offers a unique combination of the In the Park and In the Village lifestyles. Firenze is a gated enclave of 13 select estate home sites, each measuring more than one acre. Firenze offers long range views of multiple fairways and lakes on Talis Parks golf course and is situated adjacent to the Grand Piazza, just a short walk from Vyne House and the Great Lawn. The combination of the privacy of a gated neighborhood, large lot sizes, and the immediate access to the amenity core is extremely rare, particularly in Southwest Florida. Eleven one-acre+ home sites priced from $1.65 million remain available in Firenze. The appeal of Kitsons vision at Talis Park continues to be acknowledged, both by the building industry and by luxury homebuyers. The Collier Building Industry Association named Talis Park recipient of its prestigious 2014 Community of the Year Over $1 Million and 2014 Best Sales Center Sand Dollar Awards. Between October 1, 2013 and September 30, 2014, 74 closed home site sales and 47 new-build construction contracts worth a combined $87,985,720 were processed at Talis Park. New visitor traffic rose by 47%, while return visitor traffic increased by 139%. A total of 20 furnished model, unfurnished Resident Ready, and end-user new-build residences were completed during the twelve-month period. Thirty-six homes are now under construction at Talis Park and another 38 are expected to start within the next six months. New model residences currently under construction will be completed by January, 2015 and others will be completed by spring. Talis Park is located on Livingston Road just north of Immokalee Road in North Naples. The beach and the dining, shopping, and entertainment venues at Mercato, Coconut Point Mall, and Gulf Coast Town Center are all just minutes away. Visit Talis Parks award-winning Garden House Sales Center at 16980 Livingston Road, or visit Talis Park online at talispark.com. Talis Park offers a refreshing choice of Spanish Eclectic, Caribbean Colonial, and Italian Renaissance architectural designs. Penthouse-style condominium residences by WCI Communities are now under construction in Carrara at Talis Park. The first of Carraras 15 buildings that will include 90 luxurious residences is scheduled for completion next spring. Talis Parks In the Park and In the Village residences are ideally suited to Naples heralded indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Gulfshore Homes Cielo residence is one of five models currently under construction in Seneca, one of two new neighborhoods introduced during the past year at Talis Park.

Over the course of his career, the Cincinnati A photographers iconic images of the indisputably striking musician Lyle Lovett and his Acoustic Group perform in Sarasota on Oct. 17.

OCTOBER 28, 2014Youre Invited toA neck affair SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Too much talk and not enough action This summer I met a woman who talked endlessly about slippers. If I just had a pair, she said, my feet would be warmer. They would, I agreed. Can you imagine it? she said. Waking up every morning and putting your feet in a pair of cozy slippers? We were part of a group of writers and artists staying at a residency in the south of France in a village so small you couldnt even buy a cup of coffee there. Once a week we left the mountain to spend an afternoon in the city. On the days leading up to our first trip down, the woman asked me, Do you think Ill be able to find slippers in town? Of course, I said. I gave her a list of shops where she should look. On the day itself I had my own errands to run, but I left the woman standing in front of a large store similar to Target. This place will have them, I assured her. But when we met up an hour later, she hadnt bought anything. Actually, shed spent the entire time sitting at a cafe in the plaza enjoying a cup of coffee. Dont worry, I told her. The place where were going for groceries is one of those mega stores that sells everything, even socks and underwear. Theyll definitely have slippers. But when we met back at the car after the grocery run, the woman showed up sans slippers. She just gave a complacent shrug when I asked if she had looked for them. Back on the mountain later that night, I overhead her talking to another writer. Its chilly tonight, she said. Wouldnt it be nice to have a pair of slippers? I thought of that woman recently after having coffee with an old friend, a man who has been tired of his life as long as Ive known him. He talks of change every time I see him, of making grand gestures, of trading in his current situation his job, his city, his wife and moving on to something new. For a long time, I encouraged my friend. I helped him work out an action plan. I made suggestions for new careers, new places to live and, yes, even a new spouse. Yet he always threw up his hands helplessly in the face of all that concrete effort, as if changing his life were completely beyond his control. I finally realized after our most recent visit that hes just like the woman on the mountain: Hes never going to buy the damn slippers. He just likes talking about it. In a lot of ways, in life and especially in love, I think we all do this. We claim we desire something, but we refuse to make it happen. We say we want a steady life, but we run away from it every chance we get. We say we want a good partner, but thats never whom we choose. We say we want to be loved, and then we turn from those who love us most. Maybe what we need is less talking and more acting, on all fronts.

Described as both a master class in the history of American music and a love letter to Memphis. Take Me to the River contains archival footage of recording sessions and live performances with legendary artists as well as interviews with contemporary musicians who are prominent on the Memphis landscape. Sponsored by BNY Mellon Wealth Management, the Closing Night Film & Wrap Party begins at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 9, with presentation of the 2014 NIFF awards at Silverspot Cinema.

Tickets for $75 are available at silverspotcinema.com. The festival opens Thursday, Nov. 6, with the Florida premiere of Song One, an indie film that premiered in competition at this years Sundance Film Festival. Anne Hathaway stars as Franny, who has been living emotionally and geographically distant from her musician brother Henry (Ben Rosenfield), and their mother, Karen (Mary Steenburgen). After Henry suffers an accident that leaves him comatose, Franny returns home to New York. When she meets her brothers musical idol, James Forester (Johnny Flynn), a romantic connection sparks between the two that will ultimately transform them both. Writer/director Kate Barker-Froyland will attend the NIFF opening night to discuss her movie with the audience after the screening. The evening starts at 6 p.m. on the red carpet at ArtisNaples. The film starts at 7 p.m., and an afterparty takes place from 9:30 p.m. to midnight. Cocktail attire is suggested. VIP tickets are $169, and general admission is $29.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 16-22, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYphotographer has shot portraits of scores of musicians as diverse as BB King and David Byrne, John Prine and Robert Plant, Philip Glass and Sam Phillips, The Black Keys and Over the Rhine. The cover of Emmylou Harriss Red Dust Girl? Thats his work. Shawn Colvins All Fall Down? Buddy Millers Cruel Moon and Universal United House of Prayer? The Replacements iconic All Shook Down with two wet dogs on an empty, rainy street? Theyre all his. Add to that list the striking black-andwhite covers of most of Lyle Lovetts albums, starting with 1994s I Love Everybody all the way up to his most recent, Release Me, which shows Mr. Lovett standing on a dusty Texas road in a suit, trussed up in a lariat. Mr. Lovetts music has been described as not-quite-country, notquite-jazz and not-quite-blues. There are also notes of gospel, folk and western swing. A four-time Grammy-Award winner, he received the Americana Music Associations inaugural Trailblazer Award and was recently named the Texas State Musician. Hes also known for his acting, appearing in the Robert Altman films Short Cuts, The Player and Pret-a-Porter (Ready to Wear), as well as numerous TV shows. He performs at a variety of Florida venues this month with his Acoustic Group (see info box).The heart of the subjectMr. Wilsons photographs reflect Mr. Lovett and his music, his droll wit and sense of whimsy, his classiness, his Texas roots. And visually, Mr. Lovett is undeniably a great subject: tall and lanky, a sharp dresser with interesting features and curly hair barely tamed into a pompadour thats seemingly always on the edge of revolt. Hes very insightful and he does have a keen sense of humor, Mr. Wilson says. He also has a very strong sense of himself He knows whats important to him and does his best to protect it. Mr. Wilson says although it would be easy for Mr. Lovett to fake the whole cowboy thing, hes actually more of a cowboy than most country singers. A big part of his life is on his ranch, with his animals. Mr. Wilson first photographed Mr. Lovett for inside the CD booklet of Joshua Judges Ruth, which was released in 1992. We just worked out, he says. Ever since then Ive worked on all his albums. The next one was I Love Everybody, which was shot in Paris while Mr. Lovett was filming Pret-a-Porter (Ready To Wear). I basically walked around Paris with Lyle on his time off from working on the movie, Mr. Wilson says. It was great. Although they had arranged to rent a studio in The City of Light, the project wasnt thought out in advance. Most shoots with Mr. Lovett, he explains, are not approached in terms of heres what were trying to do. The cover photo for I Love Everybody ended up being a shot of Mr. Lovett seated at a table on a Paris street while model Linda Evangelista (also in the movie, and featured in Lovetts music video for Penguins) walks by. That shoot, and the ones that would come after, were cut from the same cloth, Wilson explains. Its basically Lyle and me meeting at a certain time, or over a certain couple of days, and making pictures, sometimes interspersed with whatever the daily activities are. If Lyles on the road, (that means) sound-checks and the shows. If were at his home, maybe we shoot in between him working and living his life on the ranch. For example, the cover of Release Me was taken when Mr. Lovett was working his horses with his trainer in Tioga, Texas, near the Oklahoma/Texas border. Mr. Lovett, crisply dressed in suit and tie, is wrapped up in a lariat. Definitely a little sense of humor at work there, Mr. Wilson says, adding his subject was concerned the rope not touch the ground and get dust on his suit, which he was going to wear for a performance. The photo was shot less than a mile from the trainers ranch. It was just a place Id seen (when) driving into the ranch, Mr. Wilson says. It wasnt like I went to Texas and jotted out this list of great locations. Thats generally the way he works, using whatever lights available, relying on intuition and happy accidents. I see myself as somebody who just listens and observes, he says. Im always tuned into: Where would it be comfortable and possible to do a picture? Im definitely depending on serendipity; its not something Im choreographing. A portrait, he says, is a kind of conversation. You have to find a place for the conversation. Thats the way I work. Through his publicist Mr. Lovett has this to say about Mr. Wilsons work: Michaels photos all have a feeling about them that is, they make you feel something when you see them. I imaging we truly see his subjects through his eyes; we feel what he feels when he looks at them. His pictures transcend the technical and get right to the heart of his subjects. Michael can extract emotion from even a still life.Technical aspectsMr. Wilson still works with film; he prefers it to digital, though he uses a digital camera for color shots. He also prefers black and white. Its becoming increasingly hard to get color negative film processed, but its very simple to do your own black and white, he says. My love of black and white is integrated with the process of being able to do my own film. That way of making pictures has a lot more time built into it where youre reflecting more on the pictures, he explains. You see the film when its wet. Then it dries, you make a contact sheet, you study that. You make a print. Youve been thinking about these pictures at least four different times. That little bit of distance for me is helpful.Embracing the processMr. Wilson estimates hes been to about 20 of Mr. Lovetts shows and watched several from the wings. I am a fan, he says. He also considers Mr. Lovett a friend. Underneath it all, that is the great gift that I feel, that you have someone you know and like as a friend. To shoot a good portrait, the person has to trust you, and thats a gift, he says. Any portrait is a two-step process, he adds: Part of it is coming from the photographer, deciding where the best place to take the picture is (and part of it is) the subject letting themselves engage in that process and being open to it. Thats where the trust comes in, a moment of safety, them bringing themselves to it. Something that looks honest, thats obviously what Im going for: a picture that, when you look at it, you feel you can trust it. Even if its a ridiculous picture, like Lyle Lovett wrapped in a rope.

Medically Approved.20 MINUTES A WEEK ALWAYS IN SHAPE! Naples CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR FREE STARTER SESSION! ARTS COMMENTARYPowerful, mystical: The Mountaintop by Gulfshore PlayhouseDr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a great man. Usually when that sentence is spoken, the emphasis is on the word great. In Katori Halls play, The Mountaintop, the emphasis is equally on the word man. The two-hander shows audiences the more human side of the Civil Rights leader his fears, doubts, regrets, shortcomings. He smokes. He curses. He flirts. He takes some nips from a flask. He bends the truth. He questions Gods decisions. Those predisposed to taking offense, who actively seek it out, will find plenty to be offended by in this play: the language. The way whites are spoken of. The way blacks are spoken of. The theology. Its a blunt, raw, moving, lyrical work written by a playwright who refuses to pull any punches. The Mountaintop is set in Room 306 of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, the night before Dr. Kings assassination. Fighting a cold, haunted by death threats and feeling tired and discouraged, hes just given his famous Mountaintop sermon in which he seems to prophecy his own premature death. I just want to do Gods will, he told the congregation. And Hes allowed me to go up to the mountain. And Ive looked over, and Ive seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. He has returned to his hotel room to retire for the night when, in this fictional retelling, hes visited by Camae, a hotel maid who might be more than she first appears to be. Felicia Curry plays the role with sass and verve, a spirited woman whos not afraid to both tease and admonish the reverend. She is mercurial, her shifting emotions keeping Dr. King and the audience off balance. She delivers coffee to Dr. Kings motel room, but at times you wonder: Is she a hooker? A spy? A groupie? Someone sent by his enemies to discredit him? Shes certainly not afraid to speak her mind, at one point even donning Dr. Kings suit jacket and hat to demonstrate what kind of sermon she thinks he should deliver one that certainly doesnt adhere to his message of brotherly love and non-violent protest. Jamil A.C. Mangan portrays Dr. King with aplomb. He has the more challenging role, perhaps, because his character is so well known to us as a public figure his image, his mannerisms, the tone and cadences of his speech. But we believe this is Dr. King in front of us. He gives us the man in all his greatness and all his humanity. Its even more remarkable when you consider that Mr. Mangin stepped into the role only days before rehearsals began. He has portrayed Dr. King before, in previous productions, but that doesnt mean hes just going through the motions here. He brings nuances to his portrayal and is, at times, absolutely majestic. Director Cody Nickell shows keen insight and real understanding of the material; he doesnt try to simplify the plays complexity. Jennifer Bronsteds costumes pay close attention to the details of the late s: the tie clips and cuff links, the blue eye shadow on the maid. Kudos to lighting designers David Upton and Eric Furbish, projections designer Brad Peterson and sound designer Scott Burgess, who also created original music for the play. Their efforts elevate this play, helping to make it the astounding experience that it is. David Arsenaults set is perfect in re-creating the Memphis motel room, complete with mass-produced art on the wall, black rotary phone and twin beds. Ms. Halls play raises a lot of questions about the issue of race relations and how far we have come, how far we still have to go. In some ways, its a kind of Its a Wonderful Life in reverse, minus the sentimentality. Its difficult to discuss The Mountaintop in any detail without giving away its secrets, its plot twists and surprises. I will say, however, that Ill never hear the song Jesus on the Mainline in quite the same way ever again. There are many striking images and moments in this play, most of which cannot be shared without ruining the experience for those about to see it. But one simple scene stays with me: Dr. Kings hat sitting on the bed, that omen of impending bad luck, bodily harm or death. Throughout the play it continues to sit there, a sinister symbol of what is to come. The Mountaintop brings us to an elevated height with Dr. King, and allows us, too, to see the past, the future and the distance we have yet to travel. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Mountaintop>> When: Through Oct .19 >> Where: Gulfshore Playhouse at The Norris Center, Naples >> Cost: start at $40 >> Info: (866) 811-4111 or gulfshoreplayhouse.org PEDRO ZEPEDA / COURTESY PHOTOSFelicia Curry portrays a hotel maid who enters into a profound dialogue with Martin Luther King Jr., played by Jamil A.C.

Youll want a ready reserve to help you back up those moves. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Trying to resolve a problem in a personal relationship could be more difficult than youd expected. Look into the possibility that someone might be interfering for his or her own reasons. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A project you once rejected might be more attractive because of changes that you feel you can now work with. The weekend is especially favorable to family matters. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This is a good week for the gregarious Goat to enjoy being with people you care for. You might even want to show off those creative kitchen skills youre so adept at. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A colleague might think your attitude is patronizing or even outright insulting. True. That might be his or her problem. But you might want to take some reassuring steps anyway. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Its a good time to jettison those old concepts about a family matter you might have been holding on to. This will help make room for a new and more enlightened way of dealing with it. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Caution dominates the Sheeps monetary aspect this week. Rams and Ewes might want to shear their big spending plans until a more favorable financial picture begins to emerge by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Thrift counts both at home and at work. So you might want to rethink major purchases or investments. Also, be wary of a so-called revelation about a previous decision. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Both household budgets and workplace accounts might benefit from some judicious trimming of unnecessary expenses. A partnership could lead to an unexpected challenge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously overlooked opportunity could re-emerge with a new travel-related matter. Check this out carefully to see if its what you really want before you decide one way or another. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This could be the start of a new career-changing phase, so start marking down your many accomplishments for those who need to know how much you have to offer. Good luck. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Its not too early for the sometimes procrastinating Virgo to start making those long-distance travel plans. The sooner you decide where to go, when to go and how to go, the better. BORN THIS WEEK: You like to analyze a puzzling situation before you try to resolve it. This makes you excel at getting things done the right way.

Thats when declarer takes the time to assess his prospects and formulates a plan that will give him the best chance for the contract. To this end, he tries to organize the play so as to make the contract if the opposing cards are normally divided, while at the same time, he tries to cater to the possibility that the cards are abnormally divided. Consider this deal where, after the opening diamond lead, South has eight sure tricks, and his best chance for developing a ninth trick lies in clubs. If, after taking Easts king with the ace at trick one, declarer next cashes the A-K of clubs, hoping for a normal 3-2 division, he winds up scoring only the eight tricks he started with. Instead, he should lead a club to the ace at trick two and return the club three toward his J-6. This guarantees the contract against any lie of the opposing clubs. Lets take the actual case first. If East goes up with the queen of clubs, South scores four club tricks instead of only two. If East follows low on the three, Souths jack wins, and again he makes four clubs by continuing the suit. If West holds the Q-10-x-x of clubs, the outc ome is the same. Wests club holding is exposed when East sh ows out at trick three, and after losing the jack to the queen, declarer has no trouble making four notrump with the aid of a subsequent club finesse. So, no matter how you slice it, South can assure the contract by employing a safety play at trick three. At the same time, the recommended approach yields at least 10 tricks even if the clubs turn out to be divided 3-2. naplesclubsushi.com 239.261.4332 naple sclub sushi .com 239.26 1. 433 2 Located at:2555 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL 34103 Enjoy our fresh atmosphere and friendly service right in the heart of Naples.

FILM CAPSULESGone Girl (Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris) Nick Dunne (Mr. Affleck) looks increasingly suspicious after his wife (Ms. Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. Fantastic performances and precise directing from David Fincher (The Social Network) make this one of the best of 2014. Rated R.Hector and the Search for Happiness (Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette) Bo red British psychiatrist Hector (Mr. Pegg) travels the world investigating what makes people happy. Its an impossible question to answer, but this earnest comedy provides just enough laughs. Rated R.The Hero of Color City (Voices of Christina Ricci, Owen Wilson, Sean Astin) Crayons come alive after their owner goes to sleep, but calamity strikes and Yellow (Ms. Ricci) has to lead the other colors before they fade away. Its strictly for little kids, and Im not even sure if theyll enjoy 77 minutes of this. Worse, its torture for parents. Rated G.A Walk Among the Tombstones (Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens, David Harbour) An unlicensed private eye (Mr. Neeson) helps a drug lord (Mr, Stevens) find the men who murdered the drug lords wife. While its always fun to watch Mr. Neeson as a badass, the story is unfocused and lacks surprises. Rated R.The Trip to Italy (Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Rosie Fellner) In this sequel to The Trip (2010), friends Mr. Coogan and Mr. Brydon play a version of themselves as they tour fine eateries in Italy. Its more consistently funny than the original, and the beautiful Italian landscape is nearly worth the price of admission alone. Not Rated (strong language). Tusk (Justin Long, Michael Parks, Genesis Rodriguez) An arrogant podcaster (Mr. Long) is taken captive and tortured by a madman in the Canadian woods. Writer/ director Kevin Smiths (Clerks) film is incredibly bizarre and not always in a good way. Its funny, horrific, unwatchable and yet unforgettable. It is an odd experience that I have to recommend based on the fact that I cant get it out of my mind. Rated R.Dolphin Tale 2 (Harry Connick Jr., Nathan Gamble, Ashley Judd) With dolphin Winter not feeling well, teenage Sawyer (Mr. Gamble) struggles with a big life decision as he tries to find Winter a partner. Drama-wise it trips over itself multiple times, which is not good when its already painfully predictable. Rated PG.

Robert Duvall made his movie debut in To Kill A Mockingbird in 1962. LATEST FILMSThe Judge Is it worth $10? YesLost in Robert Downey Jr.s Ironclad career resurgence is his dramatic talent, which people will expect but not really receive in The Judge. As Tony Stark in lawyer clothing, Mr. Downeys Hank Palmer is a hotshot Chicago defense attorney who wants nothing to do with his small hometown of Carlinville, Ind. As someone who grew up in a small town and now lives in a big city, I think hes being a bit harsh, but I digress. Hanks mom dies and upon his reluctant return to Carlinville, old wounds reopen: His estranged and judgmental father, town judge Joseph Palmer (Robert Duvall), has little to say to him, older brother Glen (Vincent DOnofrio) doesnt know how to treat him, and old flame Sam (Vera Farmiga) cant help herself around him. Only Hanks youngest brother Dale (Jeremy Strong) is happy Hanks around, and Dale is mentally challenged. Throw in Hanks impending divorce and a daughter (Emma Tremblay) he knows he doesnt see enough of, and Hanks life is a complete mess. And its about to get worse. Hanks father, affectionately and respectfully called Judge by all who know him, is accused of murder, and his choice of lawyer (Dax Shepard) isnt up to snuff against prosecutor Dwight Dickham (Billy Bob Thornton). Hank never says why he helps the father he despises so much, but he stays in town and takes the case. As a legal drama The Judge is unimpressive, as many of the courtroom sequences lack punch. The so-called dramatic scenes we do have underuse Mr. Thorntons one-dimensional prosecutor and render more of a what the? verdict from viewers than they do suspense. The saving grace is that not much time is spent inside the courtroom. Most of the actions happen in the Judges home and various parts of the town Hank cant stand. It is here that writers Nick Schenk and Bill Dubuque fare considerably better. The Palmer familys backstory is well thoughtout and moving, effectively allowing us to understand why the resentment would grow for so many years and how even an innocent verdict for the Judge could be irrelevant to the salvation of this clan. Mr. Duvall is strong as the stubborn patriarch, but (as expected) its Mr. Downeys unconquerable charm and vulnerability that keeps us intrigued as the story unfolds. If only there were slightly less story. Director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers, Fred Claus) is so consumed with Hanks myriad issues and there are many more than whats included here that the run time bloats to 141 minutes, which is too much for its own good. Still, Mr. Dobkin succeeds in showcasing his best asset the ensemble by staying out of the actors way and allowing the material to speak for itself. It doesnt always work in terms of structure, tone and expedience, but it works often enough to make The Judge a solid drama. p M e t dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com FOR RESERVATIONS CALL 239 Located o Rattlesnake Hammock Road 1 mile East of US 41NOW OPEN MONDAY-SATURDAY 11AM-9PM FEATURING ENTERTAINMENT BY:TOUCH OF CLASS DUOStarring Peggy & Jim FlanneryFRIDAY & SATURDAY NIGHTS 6:30PMMake Reservations Early Limited Seating50S AND 60S TOMMY BARRTUESDAY NIGHTS 6:30PM SUNDAY MORNING BREAKFAST BUFFET $12958AM-1PMFirst Come First Served!Reservations Required for Parties of 8 or Moreper person $8.95 children under 12 $1795 LIVE MAINE LOBSTEREntrees include soup or fresh garden salad, choice of potato & fresh vegetable

Reservations for Two was written by Lori Goodman. Charles Brown directs for ETC. Words, Words, Words, a David Ives play about Kafka, Milton and Swift, three intelligent chimpanzees who are put in a cage together under the experimenting eye of a never-seen scientist whos testing the hypothesis that three apes hitting keys at random on typewriters for an infinite amount of time will almost surely produce Hamlet.

Welcome to the Moon, John Patrick Shanleys play about a man still madly in love with a girl he hasnt seen in 14 years and his friend whos been trying unsuccessfully to do away with himself for 14 years. The two meet for a drink in a Bronx bar and decide to commit suicide together by putting plastic bags over their heads. Past and present become one when the two people theyve always loved arrive in time to stop them. Anna Segreto directs. Rhona Saunders is the producer for Friends, Lovers and Monkeying Around.

C22 A&E WEEK OF OCTOBER 16-22, 2014 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSA blend of popular genres will please wide range of readers The Hadron Escape by Lawrence De Maria. St. Austins Press. 203 pages (estimated). Kindle edition, $2.99. Billed as a Cole Sudden CIA Thriller, this latest offering from the indefatigable Lawrence De Maria mixes a dollop of imaginary WWII history, present-day secret agent intrigue and a twist on a familiar scifi what if into an exciting and spirited entertainment. Both fun and funny, The Hadron Escape features sex-addicted women who are (with one grotesque exception) amazingly gorgeous and a skilled, wise-cracking operative whose cover is being a writer of thriller novels. In 1945, mad German scientist Erik Zyster tells SS Col. Boltke he has discovered the corpse of a nonhuman being. The colonels mindset misunderstands nonhuman for Jew, but that is not the depraved doctors point. He explains: He had no penis. No testicles no genitals at all. While Boltke passes this off as a birth defect or sexual aberration, Zyster reveals that the internal organs are unusually sized and positioned. Jump to 1967. The colonel has long ago transformed himself into Walter Bannion. The author places him in a small Vermont town near the Canadian border. He escaped from Europe to Argentina and lived there as Walter Bruschi for many years. When the Israelis captured Adolph Eichman, Boltke planned and executed his next transformation, establishing himself as Bannion in early 1962. Soon after a minor skiing accident, Boltke/Bannion is surprised by a visit from Zyster, who tells of his escape from the laboratory he headed, his disguise as a Jewish survivor and his life since. Then he tells Bannion about recent stories describing alien corpses with characteristics just like those he had shown the colonel two decades ago. He also conjectures that aliens where spying on U.S. research near Roswell, N.M. After adding some speculation about nuclear physics research and space travel, the author launches his main plot. However, first he must have Mossad agent Etan Soul, who has been tracking Zyster, wonder about Zysters companion at the ski lodge. After Zyster kills Boltke, Soul kills Zyster, but salvages his attach case which he soon ships to Tel Aviv with whatever remnants of the doctors research it contains.

A top security official receives a mysterious intercepted message regarding the Hadron Collider, the worlds largest subatomic particle accelerator. The message was sent from a small town in Georgia to a destination in Switzerland where the Hadron is located. The encrypted transmission has symbols that Laurie Gibbons, the security advisor with a direct presidential pipeline, has never seen before. She learns that Hadron activity distorts electronic transmissions, posing a big problem for code breakers. Meanwhile (as they say), agent Cole Sudden is in Maine on assignment from his very special CIA unit, tracking a gangster in witness protection who must be assassinated. Suddenly (no pun), Suddens mission is terminated and he is ordered to CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. (Well, at least he had gathered some location material for his next Cole Swift novel.) Deputy Director Penelope Parsons forms a special team that includes Coles unit plus, on loan from Mossad, the gorgeous Rebecca Soul. Yes, shes the daughter of the assassin who killed Zyster in 1967 and salvaged his attach case. Parsons shows the group still photos and videos that had belonged to Zyster. Her briefing leads to a link between the Hadron and the alien presence Zyster found in 1945. In fact, new aliens have been discovered, the updated models with functioning genitalia. Charles Baker is the Georgia (disguised alien) connection. He worked as a scientist at the accelerator lab at the University of Georgia. Why was an alien communicating with someone at the Hadron Collider? Who was at the Swiss end of the message? Now the race is on. After some exploration of Bakers life in Georgia, Sudden and Soul are off to Switzerland. From here on, the novel explodes with highly suspenseful action, semi-comic sexual relief, mad and maddening science and plenty of surprises. One might say that all the plot pieces accelerate and collide. There, I just said it. With something for fans of many popular genres, The Hadron Escape should attract and please many readers. 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.

Caw! I thought it sounded more like Haw! Haw! It was if those seagulls were laughing at us. They probably were. I shouted at them that we had no food to give them. My uncle had loaned us his little rowboat and told us to be careful not to lose the oars. He said the brackets were rusted and probably would not hold. I was not worried until we did just that, lost the oars in the gulf. I was gazing at the clouds, fantasizing about creatures they represented. I thought I saw a monster with its mouth open ready to strike. I got lost in the vision. Before I came out of my trance I lost hold of my oar. When Leo reached over to help me, his oar was swept out to sea. We were lucky enough to be towed to shore by some young men in a power boat. When they got near the beach they hopped out of their boat to help us drag the little rowboat back on the sand. We The final round of the Florida Weekly Writing Challenge is underway.

Ground-breaking Author of Not Now... Im Having a No Hair Day! $150 per ticket thanked the nice young men, then asked each other, Now what? We had a few more beers, then decided our next move would be to start swimming toward the spot we thought we lost the oars. We laughed as we ducked around and over the waves trying to locate them. It was just one of those spur-of-the-moment crazy ideas that a young couple has when life seemed like a dream. All we cared about was being together and creating memories, and I was determined to find my uncles oars. Before long we realized we had drifted away from the spot where we could see the rowboat. We didnt know where we were. The waves were getting higher and dark clouds were moving in. Leo and I joined hands in mutual panic and tried to get to shore. It wasnt working; we were being dragged further out to sea. It seemed our dream had turned into a nightmare. We were both getting weak and trying to swim against the current seemed impossible. I thought I heard the sound of a boat but then realized it was just the same seagulls laughing at us. I shouted at them that this was not funny. I asked them to call for help, then realized how insane that was. How could seagulls call for help? Leo gave me a helpless look as he scanned our surroundings for some sign of land or some kind of a fishing vessel, anything that could save us. We knew we were in deep trouble. Our feet could not touch the bottom anymore; we had drifted too far out into the angry waters. Caw! Caw! screamed the seagulls. For some unknown reason I did not think they were laughing at us this time. I actually believed they were trying to help. Out of nowhere what I thought was one of the oars appeared in the mist and waves. I grabbed onto it and sputtered for Leo to grab the other end. At least we were still alive and had regained hope that we were not going to drown. But where was the shore? The seagulls kept flying above us. I trusted them to guide us to safety. We had no other choice. In my delirious condition I saw them as angels. Leo thought I had completely lost my mind. Nevertheless we followed those birds. Did I see trees? Was that land? We were tangled in seaweed and getting bitten by jellyfish or stingrays. Through the haze I heard the distant cry of not only the birds, but people shouting someone needed help. It was us! We had splinters from the oar, burning pain from bites, bruises from being thrown into the trees, but thankful we were still alive. I heard the familiar caw! caw! as the birds I now believed were angels flew away. I knew I was losing consciousness when all I could see were strobe lights superimposed with pieces of oars floating in the air. My last thought before being plunged into darkness was how I was going to explain to Uncle Claude about the angel birds, how we had survived but lost his oars, and a promise to buy him new ones. Low Tide By Amy SwenPort Charlotte The receding water pulled away from the shore and revealed its true self. The moon was the culprit of this unveiling. It allowed the warm, porous sand to announce the hidden treasures it had in its possession, like a magician releasing his scarves. There was no guilt or shame in this. The seas opening to the world was one of love and acceptance. I walked along the waters edge, aware of my footsteps in the sand. The waters coolness brought me to a sense of now-ness. I felt my heart beat, heard my soft breath, and felt my toes in the foamy saltwater. Like an orchid with all the right conditions to blossom, I walked on. Lifeless, like a beached whale, I came upon a small rowboat. It was a rugged little thing. Bits of yellow and blue paint were evidence of an earlier time of maintenance. There appeared to be no holes or real damage. By appearances, the rowboat was intact. Clearly, the low tide had created a safe haven for this vessel. I wondered it if had been abandoned or if it had found its own refuge. It seemed to be waiting for me. I couldnt possibly get aboard. I was walking the beach as a morning ritual. It was how I coped with the turbulent world around me. At 55 years old, I no longer knew the direction of my own compass. I had lived such a full life travel, children, friends, work. I had so much to be thankful for, yet so much empty space ahead. As if by instinct, I took the line and began to pull the little boat toward the water. It glided along the damp sand like a sea turtle returning to its home. I felt unsteady at first as I lowered myself into the rowboat. I wished that someone was there to witness my feat of bravery, but alas not a soul in sight. The oars felt comfortable in my hands, as if they had been there before. I gently pushed the water away from me and headed out to sea. Although my hands had found their comfort, my mind was reeling. A gust of wind engulfed me with fear and indecision. The boat jarred one way and then another under my uncertainty. The oars were awkward and flapped the water as if they were an injured seal. I had nowhere to hide. I had only myself to depend on. In my panic, I turned to the water. The aqua liquid glistened and winked as I was drawn toward a familiar sight. A lone starfish was resting in the sand. Its finger-like tentacles put me at ease. I knew I was not alone. I rested the oars inside the boat on top of the rugged seats and let the water rock me gently back and forth. I closed my eyes and felt as if I was not on the water, but was part of it. The soul of the earth was welcoming me. The pendulum of the waves became my breath and I knew at that moment that I was one with the earth. No need to worry. Just be. Just be. A sense of peace enveloped me and when I awoke from this trance I headed back to shore. The waves pushed me along as the tide was changing its course. I rowed steadily and felt the moons presence. Just be, it was saying. I came upon the sandy beach and lifted myself from the boat. I took the line and pulled my little friend a safe distance from the water. I returned to the edge of the water, smiled and sat along the shore. My toes delighted in the frothy seawater. I arose and continued my mornings outing while the rowboat sat silent, waiting for the next one longing for a sense of self.

KOVEL: ANTIQUES Save some green on brown furniture BY TERRY AND KIM KOVEL What a bargain! Often an authentic antique sells for less than a modern copy. Since the price of antique wooden (brown) furniture has dropped in the last few years, the good news is that there are many bargains for a buyer looking for an older style. Fewer home sales mean fewer furnishings sales, and the prices of antiques have suffered. Few Americans grew up with a 19th-century inlaid secretary from Holland in the house. Dutch designs were elaborate, with curved legs, domed cornices, mirrored door fronts, even a slant-front opening covered by a flip top that served as a desk. And of course there were drawers, candle slides and cubby holes. It is the perfect piece for a period room or as an accent piece in a simple modern room. And the drawers furnish good storage space. A new reproduction piece like this would have plain, not inlaid, surfaces and probably straighter legs and less trim. A top-quality copy would cost about $5,000. At a 2014 auction, a 7-foot-high secretary desk that could easily be moved into a modern room with the usual 8-foot ceiling sold for $2,214 at New Orleans Auction Galleries. More good news: An antique has a better chance than a copy to go up in value. Q: I was 3 years old in 1937 when I was flower girl in my aunts wedding. I wore a pale blue dress with pink trim and ivory lace at the neck. The tag inside reads A Nannette Toddler Shirley Temple Brand along with a picture of Shirley Temple. I still have the dress. What is it worth? A: Shirley Temple was 5 when she made her film debut. Her 1930s and s retail dresses were designed like her movie costume dresses, in a todThis 19th-century Dutch walnut secretary with inlay sold for $2,214 at New Orleans Auction Galleries. It is an example of the bargains that are now seen at auctions because of the drop in prices of what the trade calls brown furniture.

They were made by Nannette Manufacturing Co. of New York City, a division of Rosenau Brothers. The basic design was a skirt with soft pleats and contrasting collar. Fabrics were cotton, organdy and dotted Swiss in prints, plaids, checks and embroidery. There wasnt much trimming, maybe a small bow, an appliqued figure or narrow lace edging. A 1936 newspaper advertised Shirley Temple dresses for $1.89 each. Dresses for older little girls were made by Cinderella, also a division of Rosenau. Shirley Temple dresses for sale in online shops are priced $30 to $60. Q: I bought a set of Gerber Swiss Bells still in its original package. There are five plastic bells, each in a different color. It has the original price tag of $1 still attached. When was it made and how much is it worth? A: Dorothy Gerber (Mrs. Dan Gerber of Gerber Products Co.) wrote about the bells in her popular newspaper column, Bringing Up Baby, in 1965. But online sources that offer these musical bells for sale claim they are from the 1950s. A set of the bells in good condition but without the packaging recently sold for $20. Another set, in the original package, sold for $25. Q: I have a set of Norman Rockwell prints I received as a premium for subscribing to Readers Digest in the early 1970s. They depict the four seasons Each one is signed and numbered 2945. I was wondering if they might be collectors items. A: You dont say what size the prints are, but theyre probably small if they were sent to you as a premium. Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) was a hugely popular U.S. artist and illustrator in the middle decades of the 20th century. Respect for his work has grown again in recent years. Large Rockwell prints that were actually autographed by Rockwell sell for high prices. Your set might sell for $25 or so. Q: I have a ball-shaped, clear glass jar embossed National Biscuit Company in capital letters. Im told it was in my familys restaurant in the early 1940s. The jar, with the lid on, is 11 inches tall. Its a little over 10 inches in diameter at its widest point. Please tell us its approximate age and value. A: The National Biscuit Co. was founded in East Hanover, N.J., in 1898. We know the company as Nabisco, which became its corporate name in 1971. Its likely your jar dates from the early post-World War II era. There are other versions of National Biscuit Co. glass jars. Yours sells for $65 to $75. Tip: If you are remodeling or redecorating, think about antiques and collectibles displayed in the work area.

If youre more excited about stone crab season than tourist season, you probably started cracking claws on opening day earlier this week. Now you can look forward to filling up at the Tin City Stone Crab Festival Oct. 24-26 and eating your way through the season (which ends May 15) with local crustacean specials such as Triads Seafood Market and Cafs all-you-can-eat stone crab buffet or fresh-of-the-dock crabs at Kellys Fish House Dining Room. After a series of soft openings, Momentum Brewhouse in Bonita Springs becomes fully operational Thursday, Oct. 23. The five-barrel brew system will be running at capacity, and guests will be able to visit the tasting room and sample house-brewed selections or purchase a pint. Theres no kitchen, but Momentum is partnering with local caterers to provide light bites, and customers are free to bring their own food. They can also poke around the production area and play board games and ping-pong in the tasting room. 9786 Bonita Beach Road; 9083572 or momentumbrewhouse.com.

A portion of the afternoons proceeds will benefit the Neighborhood Health Clinic. 1186 Third St. S.; 434-7258 for reservations. Longtime locals will probably recognize Ela Vivonetto, a.k.a. The Sauce Lady, from her stalls at local farmers markets. A nomad no more, Ms. Vivonetto opens a retail location Thursday, Oct. 30, at 9331 Tamiami Trail N. (just north of Mercato on the west side of U.S. 41). In addition to providing carryout service of all of her popular gourmet sauces, from alfredo and Bolognese to pesto and puttanesca, shes expanding the menu to include classic Italian-American dishes such as lasagnas and veal saltimbucco. The space also has a private dining room that will seat up to 24 guests for fivecourse dinners. 592-5557 or saucelady.com. 360Market has a new approach to pricing that can mean significant savings for tipplers. Rather than marking up bottles and cases by a percentage, owner Rebecca Maddox adds just $3.60 per bottle. Wine sales have exploded, she says, and as a result, her costs from the distributor decrease. Every time I can get another increment of wine, the price goes down, Ms. Maddox explains, adding the program has started to function as a co-op. Find something somewhere else that you like?

To this day, Im not sure how or why The Kale Salad even caught my eye, let alone tempted me into ordering it instead. But Im glad I did. Ive been back three times since then for the big white bowl heaped with baby kale and cabbage, strips of crunchy jicima, chunks of celery and Greek feta, all tossed with a lovely lemon vinaigrette then topped with a substantial serving of grilled chicken breast. Theres another interesting salad on the menu at The Counter Burger that Ill try if the day ever comes that I tire of The Kale Salad. The Hippie Salad ($9) is a groovy concoction of mixed greens, quinoa, herbed goat cheese, alfalfa sprouts, marinated tomatoes and house-made garlic croutons, topped with Dijon balsamic vinaigrette. Be warned: The kale and cabbage require some serious masticating, so you cant rush through this dish. But when the bowl is clean, youll be satisfied and energized for whatever the afternoon or evening brings. Cindy Pierce firstname.lastname@example.org

Walk from the parking lot into its verdant courtyard, the trees strung with tiny white lights, and you feel miles away from civilization. The dining room has a European feel, but I recommend dining outdoors, weather permitting. Chef/ owner Alexander Bernards food has a continental bent but ranges with his imagination. The vegetarian spring roll consists of crisp pastry, fresh spinach, gorgonzola and toasted walnuts with a plummy balsamic dipping sauce. The chef is equally adept at fish and meat, as evidenced by an excellent macadamiaencrusted grouper with beurre blanc and a crispy duck with port-wine reduction, sweet-tart lingonberries and heavenly sweet potato flan. Mini desserts include tasty treats such as Key lime pie, goat cheese cheesecake and Snickers pie and are just enough to satisfy after a big meal. For those watching their calories, the chef offers a healthy choice menu as well. Beer and wine served. Food Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2013 FUSE Global Cuisine, 2500 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 456-4585 Fried duck mac and cheese, hog wings (braised pork fore shanks fried and tossed with chili garlic sauce, sesame seeds and green onions) and golden beet salad with bucheron cheese and micro greens are but a few of the ways to start off a meal at this intriguing spot opened last November by Chef/owner Greg Scarlatos (formerly of Angelinas) and his partner Monica Czechowska. Entree options offer similarly imaginative but not over-the-top combinations, such as Colorado lamb chops with tart cherry glaze and Stilton potato hash garnished with crisp Brussels sprouts or cobia and wild mushroom with huckleberry gastrique. Guava bread pudding with fresh strawberries made a fine end to the meal. Service was gracious, the ambience soothing. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2013 Osteria Tulia, 466 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 213-2073 This restaurant sits along tony Fifth Avenue, yes, but inside, Osteria Tulia is downright homey, simple and rustic, with food to match. Chef/owner Vincenzo Betulia spent more than a decade at Campiello, and now heads up his own place thats filled with family members creating superb authentic fare. Caponata and fresh bread whets the appetite. House-made ricotta with walnuts and fresh herbs and meatballs napped in tomato sauce and garnished with pine nuts, currants and melted Parmesan were great starters. The roasted chicken was a thing of wonder, tender and succulent, served with farro, acorn squash and locally grown black leaf kale. Housemade garganelli with braised lamb sugo and sheep cheese will make pasta lovers swoon. For dessert, do not miss the ricotta fritters with slow-cooked berries and whipped cream. As befits such a homey establishments, service was warm and nurturing. Full bar. Food Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2013 The Other Side Bistro, 24630 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 9927433 The breadth of experience and wisdom Chef Brian McCarley has accumulated over several years and restaurants comes together artfully in a tantalizing mlange of American dishes reinterpreted through classical French principles. Humble diner fare such as meatloaf, for instance, is transformed by a cabernet sauvignon demi-glace made from scratch. Its not all amped-up comfort food, though. Surprises pop up throughout the menu, such as artichoke hearts stuffed with goat cheese and quinoa and a rarely seen side dish of rich pommes Anna. Chef McCarley knows how to transform meat and potatoes into something special, like feathery gnocchi tucked into slow-cooked short rib meat and rich mushroom sauce. Seared snapper managed to be straightforward and sophisticated at the same time; the huge, moist fillet had a gorgeous bronze crust and was complemented by tomato-fennel compote and saffron-white-wine sauce. Save room for homemade desserts. Beer and wine served.

Thaiborn Khwan Sawai and her husband, Naples Philharmonic cellist Adam Satinsky, have created this multi-cultural oasis where the menu overflows with Thai and Japanese specialties. A classic papaya salad, with shrimp, shreds of green papaya, carrots, green beans and peanuts, was sweet, tart and spicy, as ordered; tum kha soup with shrimp and miso soup both proved to be faithful renderings. The special pad Thai studded with chicken, pork, beef and shrimp was a symphony of textures and tastes. The kitchen also did a fine job on seafood and vegetable tempura. The standout: mussels basil with vegetables and savory brown sauce. We finished with a lovely dish of sticky rice and mango for dessert. Beer and wine served.

CUISINEThe Crusts Midwest-style pie converts confirmed East Coast snobLet me confess up front that until last weekend, I didnt believe in Midwest pizza. When Jon Stewart skewered these thincrusted pies some months ago on The Daily Show, I laughed along with him. And I was puzzled by the way he ate crow and a Chicago pizza with gusto and an apology a couple of days later. I was born and raised on the East Coast, where pizzas come with substantial crusts that are sliced in wedges. I believed that no one west of Philadelphia could make a respectable pie. That was before I visited The Crust, a charming little throwback of a pizza parlor that opened in the Pavilion Shopping Center in June. It joins an eclectic array of dining establishments, including Fit & Fuel, Trattoria Abruzzo, Kitchen 845, Skillets, Subway, Flemings Steakhouse, Grumpys Ale House and the soon-to-open second location of Incas Kitchen. My dining companion, born and raised in Chicago, didnt know what a Midwest pizza was either, although the menu gave us a clue with this description: Crispy on the bottom, fluffy in the middle and loaded to the brim with toppings. OK, well bite. The Crust offers pies in 10-, 13and 16-inch sizes as well as a 12-inch glutenfree version (made from dough ordered from Venice Beach Bakery). The rest is made in house and is the result of two years of experimentation by the owners, Midwestern transplants Laura Kanellopoulos, her husband, George, brother-in-law Ed Miller (who serves as general manager) and assorted other relatives who taste tested the multitude of pies they tried before they arrived at the excellent version they now serve. It is, indeed, crispy on the bottom, fluffy in the middle and well endowed with choice toppings. But well get to all that in a few minutes. First there are a few other things worth mentioning about The Crust: The vegetables: Theyre all fresh (except for the artichokes and banana peppers) and come from Naples-based Oakes Farm. The chicken: Its roasted each morning for the baked chicken sub, for addition to any salad and for the pesto pizza, which also comes with provolone, artichokes, kalamata olives, tomatoes and red onions. The artwork: Black-and-white photos of old-time celebrities, a colorized food item superimposed on each one, grace the walls. Over our table, for instance, Frank Sinatra ate a pepperoni pizza, while across the room a wideeyed Lucy and Ethel were focused on a big meatball sub and Alfred Hitchcock grasped a large salad. The music: Mostly Motown and other oldies such as Aretha Franklin and Sly and the Family Stone are piped in at a volume that wont cause indigestion. The menu is divided into three parts: pizzas, salads and subs. There are five salads, all available in side or entre portions. The spinach ($7 for the small, $10 for the large) contained fresh spinach, red onions, dried cherries, candied pecans, shreds of bacon and gorgonzola accompanied by a tangy cherry-balsamic vinaigrette. This was a terrific combination: crunchy, chewy, tart and sweet. A traditional Greek ($7 for the side version, $11 for entre size) contained no lettuce but had plenty of fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, green peppers, Kalamata olives, a slab of feta cheese topped with oregano and olive oil. It, too, was delicious. There are also five sub choices: Italian, meatball, veggie, ham and baked chicken. Considering the meatballs ($9) are a family recipe, it seemed the logical choice. The sub came in a shallow metal pail, tucked into white butcher paper. The roll was a sturdy Italian version topped with sesame seeds. Inside, four tender and flavorful meatballs were slathered in savory red sauce with the complex flavor that only comes from long simmering on the stove. Finished with provolone cheese, it was the quintessential meatball sub. And then there was the pizza. You can get one of the specialty pies, but we wanted to craft our own from the variety of ingredients offered (smoked gouda, basil, jalapenos and chicken are among the more unusual toppings). We settled on a 10-inch with pesto, mushrooms, provolone, spinach and banana peppers. The pie was $10, with $1 for each topping. When it arrived it was indeed a thing of beauty, fragrant and topped with plenty of goodies with the exception of the spinach, which was absent. But never mind. The pesto had a bright basil and garlic flavor, the mushrooms were firm and fresh and the banana peppers added a piquant edge to that incredibly wonderful thin crust crispy on the bottom and fluffy in the middle. It was cut into small pieces, mostly squares, which looked odd to me but made it pretty easy to handle. We left nothing. Theres no need to drink swill when dining on such good food, either. Choose from Mark West pinot noir, Diseno malbec, Nobilo sauvignon blanc or Franciscan Estate chardonnay or one of the draft beers (Jai Alai and Yuengling among them). There are lots of soft drinks available as well. The staff, from our earnest young server to the doting manager to the hospitable Mrs. Kanellopoulos, was warm and welcoming. Just one taste of The Crusts pizza and its hearty hospitality is enough to make a believer out of the most skeptical diner. Dont take my word for it, though.
