Well, for starters, you should probably remove most of their clothing.

COMMENTARYObamas legacy may be mired in SyriaOn Jan. 20 a new president will be inaugurated, thereby making Barack Obama a private citizen once again. After eight grueling years characterized by unremitting, personally charged attacks against himself and his family, Mr. Obama seems to be looking forward to his life as an expresident. We wish him Godspeed. Like his predecessors, Mr. Obama is spending his final months in office burnishing his legacy. That is understandable. When presidents depart, journalists and academics rush to render historical judgments. Americans are an impatient lot, and we want our history now, not years from now, when it has, of course, legitimately become history. Former presidents are vexed that their failures overwhelm their triumphs. Jimmy Carter brokered the landmark peace agreement between Israel and Egypt, but the mere mention of his name now conjures images of a timid man in a cardigan whining about a national malaise. George H.W. Bush cannot understand why his masterful prosecution of the first Gulf War is obscured by his stumbling domestic policies and an illtimed glance at his wristwatch during a presidential debate. Bill Clinton is embittered that he is forever linked to Monica Lewinsky. What about those high-rolling economic good times of the 1990s? he wonders. George W. Bush insisted, upon exiting the White House in 2009, that it would be at least 50 years before anyone could fairly assess his performance. He has a point, but it is hard see how his lamentable record of two botched wars and a ruined economy will look any better in 2059. Ronald Reagan is the only president of recent memory whose legacy remains largely intact and unscathed more a testament to his aw-shucks amiability and Irish charm than anything else. Reaganites swoon over the role he played in the collapse of the Soviet Union. Less remembered is that Mr. Reagan should have been impeached and convicted because of the Iran-Contra affair, which involved swapping arms for hostages and the illegal funneling of funds to right-wing rebels in Nicaragua. The Teflon President avoided impeachment by pleading he was blissfully unaware that Oliver North and his merry band of henchmen operating out of the White House, no less were shredding the Constitution right under his nose. It is Mr. Reagan who Mr. Obama hopes to emulate in the shaping of his historical record. But the emotionally distant Mr. Obama, lacking the Gippers avuncular good cheer, will have a tough time pulling that off. Many of Mr. Obamas shortcomings as president can be laid at the feet of radical Republicans who questioned the legitimacy of his election and were determined from the outset to bring him down regardless of how much harm their unyielding opposition inflicted upon the Republic. He also faced, as our first African American president, strong headwinds of racism. (Donald Trumps indefensibly vile birther ravings comprise Exhibit A in this regard.) As noted, most presidencies are tarred by at least one notable failure. Mr. Obamas signal misstep, Syria, is a real whopper and a pluperfect disaster that will be dumped into the lap of his successor and complicate American foreign policy for decades to come. Mr. Obamas curious ambivalence toward this savage civil war has resulted in unspeakable carnage, an international humanitarian and refugee crisis of epic proportions, a diminution of American prestige and an emboldening of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his sadistic sidekick, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The failure that is Syria will define Mr. Obama as surely as the Iraq fiasco has come to define George W. Bush. As with Mr. Bush, we neednt wait 50 years to make that historical pronouncement. Republicans scream about Obamacare, Benghazi and a host of other real and imagined scandals and foul ups, but future scholars and biographers will produce volumes that chronicle and dissect the agony of Aleppo. Mr. Obama understands the existential threat Syria represents to his standing. He says the debacle haunts him. He undermines that claim by insisting the Syrian quagmire is, in essence, unsolvable a strangely passive and selfdiminishing observation from someone who sincerely believes he ranks among the top five or so American presidents.In an interview with Doris Kearns Goodwin, the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, Mr. Obama said this of Syria: But I do ask myself, Was there something we hadnt thought of? Was there some move that is beyond what was being presented to me that maybe a Churchill could have seen, or an Eisenhower might have figured out? I think in this job one of the things you realize is there are problems that end up being really hard and by definition the only problems that come to my desk are the ones that nobody else can solve.Fair enough. But to be mentioned in the same breath as Washington, Lincoln and the Roosevelts, a president must aggressively untangle the really hard problems and ultimately conquer the ones that nobody else can solve. That is the test of presidential greatness, Mr. Obama, and in Syria you flunked. Roger Williams column will return next week. bill CORNWELLbcornwell@floridaweekly.com EVAN EL-AMIN / SHUTTERSTOCK.COM

And what would a circus be without a side show? Well, we dont have to wonder. In this case, the circus is the 2016 presidential campaign. If the star attractions fail to please, there are always the sideshows featuring their political surrogates. What they offer is almost as fantastical as the ladies and gents making the big bucks inside the tent. This is the Greatest Show on Earth, a cornucopia of mind-bending, performance art but of a political sort. It has the chills, thrills and occasional screams of horror a genuine circus inspires. It offers high-flying trapeze work, politically dangerous and without a net. Anonymous maestros work the levers behind the tent flaps. They assume everything will go according to plan, until it doesnt; and then chaos ensues. Inside the Big Top, the ringmasters crack their whips. They struggle to keep order. There no longer is a coherent process to rehearse the star performers. Civility is abandoned. Social media makes everyone a communications combatant. The debates are a counterfeit of the real thing, as remote from the serious issues facing the nation as a circus is from reality on the street. It is clown time. Meanwhile, the donkey and elephants herded on the shows periphery are in full stampede, running this way and that, toward some ambiguous destination. They know not where the calamitous race will end. Even though Americans delight in the spectacle, they look nervously about for the nearest exit. They have no confidence in the direction they are led. They are hypnotized by the absurdity of it all, stuck in passive state of stupidity. They are oblivious to the political hacks who take advantage of their communal distraction. With eyes wide open, the electoral system is robbed of legitimacy. The assault of cynicism threatens to bankrupt the entire process. The media-induced trance is part of the surrogates doing, too. They need only look and sound credible to be effective con artists. They pick donors pockets, separate the facts from the truth and sow seeds of distrust and confusion. Their marks co-operate in their own seduction. They are happy to be taken for a ride from which theyll not return. Politics as entertainment is addictive. Right-wing populists use the electoral process as a means to destroy it. Americans intoxicated with anger rally behind the onslaught, cheering it on. They thrill to uncaging an unpredictable force, empowered with their support to terrorize hapless others. Theirs is a twisted notion of economic revenge. Alas, they are dupes, blind to and complicit in what is actually going on an electoral process so corrupted by money and special interests that democracy is about to be stolen. Corporations are people. Money is free speech. We did it to ourselves. When the show is done, when the full measure of the crime is taken, our regret will come too late. It wont matter if someone aspiring to be president of the United States is without the qualifications and experience to do the job. Donald Trump is the first candidate to get this close to the Oval Office without either. He is the proof of concept the perpetrators of a failed democracy were looking to find. The irony is he found them first. Yes, ladies and gentlemen. This is the Greatest Show on Earth our incomparable American democracy making its periodic, peaceful transfer of presidential power. But the transition is dangerously out of control, like an ancient Roman circus where only the lions survive. Most of us will arrive at the polls exhausted. Still, more is to come. Even when the tent is quiet, the side shows ceaselessly beckon an audience with breaking news. First comes the tease, henceforth of the undiscovered, the half-man/halfwoman; or some other novel aberration never known to man until now! Its all a part of the plan whose plan we never know for sure. Call them the Impresarios of Leaks. He/she/it promises the exposure of secrets will blow our minds and the election results, too. Veiled threats hint of bombshell disclosures, an October surprise. A sickening reveal is made of Donald Trumps locker room talk, the adolescent euphemism he used to explain his adult sexual predations against women. October isnt even over yet.In the last two presidential debates, a screen shot of the Declaration of Independence served as the background to the speakers platforms. This historic, foundational document embodies the principles and values the Founding Fathers thought fundamental to guiding the emergence of the new democracy. It reminds us of the sacred trust we share as American citizens to serve and protect that vision, now, and for all future generations. Think about the stark contrast between the Declarations soaring aspirations human equality, and life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all and the reality show featuring the two dueling candidates on stage defending those ideals. The greatest show on Earth? Not hardly. And shamefully, not anymore. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

Email her at email@example.com and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.com.The agony of the RepublicansLess than a month before the election, the Republican speaker of the House says he wont defend or campaign with his partys presidential nominee. The nominee has responded by slamming the speaker on Twitter, and his campaign manager is accusing some (unnamed) elected Republicans of sexual harassment against her. The Donald Trump campaign and the Republican Party show every sign of entering into an ugly death spiral. The revelation of the Trump Access Hollywood tape occasioned a historic rupture, with elected Republicans around the country denouncing Trump and calling on him to step aside. Any hope of Trump turning a corner with his relatively competent second debate was dashed when House Speaker Paul Ryan told his colleagues that he is concentrating on saving his House majority as a check on Hillary Clinton. It is a fact that one out of two majorparty presidential campaigns fail. Some fail badly. But the GOP may be about to experience an unprecedentedly wrenching debacle because its nominee is an ideological interloper with no impulse control or regard for political norms. No matter how bad or weird the campaign seems now, it could get worse and stranger still. Bob Dole was a horrible presidential candidate and not a particularly conservative Republican. But he was an honorable man who had a loyalty to things bigger than himself, including his political party. When Republicans had to cut him loose in 1996 to try to save their congressional majorities, he was a good and loyal soldier. Does anyone expect that of Donald Trump? His investment in the party is nil, and he takes all slights personally, whether they are from Alicia Machado or the speaker of the House. The Access Hollywood tape was a tipping point. In isolation, perhaps Republicans could have looked beyond it. But after so many controversies and interventions and alleged pivots, the dam finally broke. The split creates the predicate for a GOP internal war until November and beyond. It will pit swing-state Republicans and those who want to save them, like Paul Ryan, against Trumps hardcore base and the balance of ordinary partisan Republicans. The disunity itself will be damaging and dispiriting. There will be every incentive for Trump to exacerbate rather than try to smooth over, or at least look past, the divide. Hitting back at his party critics energizes his fans, and, if he is headed for a loss in November, it sets up a stabbed-in-the-back narrative after the election. So his party detractors are insiders, quislings and, to believe his campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, sexual harassers. The period before the first presidential debate, when Trump pulled close to a tie with Hillary Clinton, feels like an eon ago. He had come back with a month of relative discipline beginning in mid-August that now looks like a parenthesis in an otherwise recklessly selfish campaign. That Trump would become a poisonous wedge issue within the GOP was always a plausible worst-case scenario. Now, it is upon us. Trump supporters in the primaries wanted to burn it down. They may well be able to point to the wreckage of the post-November GOP as an indicator of their smashing success.

Im not sure what that means about my chosen topics otherwise, but letting all of Naples know about Jessie, our Springer spaniel, has done far more for my popularity than any other columns Ive written. So Im cashing in our investment this week with an update on our 9-month-old problem child. First, well start with her sleep training. Just like an infant, Jessie had to be taught how to sleep once she arrived at our home. Her breeder did a lot of the hard work and she slept easily through the night until 5 a.m. After dealing with two children who didnt sleep for years, Im familiar with all the baby tricks to get out of the crib and into the bed with mom and dad. While I eventually caved with my human babies out of sheer exhaustion, I would rather light myself on fire than send myself back to that addlebrained period of my life over a puppy. My counterpart, James, eventually got Jessie to wait until 6 a.m., when he would let her out and take her around the neighborhood to get some wiggles out. And then she started whining in the middle of the night exactly the way a toddler cries about being scared at 2 a.m. Youve got to be kidding me, END ITAL Id think, passive-aggressively rolling over to convey that I certainly wasnt getting up to deal with her. And just like a kid, she wore us down and now sleeps at our bedside. I hate it. She snores, dreams out loud and occasionally jumps to her feet to noisily alert us to an armadillo outside. Just last night I woke up to her standing next to me and pointing out the window. Her crate was the only thing that contained her overnight, and now that shes loose, weve lost all control. Of course, James is as overly sensitive to her emotional needs as he was to those of our nocturnally motivated babies, so Im the only one suffering over the loss. Jessie also routinely wakes me up by dive-bombing all 45 pounds of her liverand-white fuselage onto my chest, her wet paws pinning my hair to the pillow and her slimy nose leaving a trail across my face. All that being said, Jessie is a much better girl than she was the last time I wrote about her. Her obsessive chewing has decreased and shes fully housebroken. Her energy is still off the charts, however, and to counteract it, James straps on rollerblades and takes her out for a run each evening. Despite visions of Jessie dragging him at full speed around the block, he insists that she trots besides him as if she has real leash manners. I know for a fact that she doesnt, so I suppose shes just exhausted herself too many times to continue being a maniac during these outings. Jessie returns panting and drooling, requiring copious amounts of water and about 20 minutes to recover. Once she does, its close to her bedtime and shes ready for couch snuggles, which is really my favorite part of owning Jessie. Shes a lover a dopey, drooling, catchasing lover. Thanks to Lindsey Nesmith, Jessie can answer to the names Dummy, Dum-

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYadults-only festival has since morphed into the largest event in the Keys, and one of the most unique and popular of its kind in the country. (Imagine Halloween and Mardi Gras got very, very drunk one night in late January, and nine months later youve got Fantasy Fest.) To hear locals tell it, the event started out small quaint even, with early themes like Old Key West and Plays of Tennessee Williams. Over time, it developed a decidedly more adult attitude (most participants of last years All Hallows Intergalactic Freakshow seemed to have been space-shuttled in from a futuristic world where clothes are irrelevant, but silver body paint ubiquitous). Its doubtful that founding member Joe Liszka could have foreseen todays current iteration of Fantasy Fest. Mr. Liszka, who in 9 was busy serving as the president of the Tourist Development Association of Monroe County, spent his days noodling out strategies to attract more tourists to the Keys. Always popular during the winter months among tourists fleeing the cold, business dropped significantly after the weather became more pleasant north of Miami. The snowbirds flew back to their nests, so to speak, leaving empty nests and plummeting profits behind them. According to the official history of Fantasy Fest, Mr. Liszka led fellow TDA board member Frank Romano down to Duval Street on Halloween, and asked him to report what he saw when the twosome arrived at the quiet, uninhabited roadside. It turned out to be a trick question; Mr. Romano saw nothing, which was, Mr. Liszka explained, precisely the point. The islands residents and shopkeepers had developed a distinctly European habit of boarding up their homes and businesses and leaving for vacation en masse during the hottest fall months of September and October. To Mr. Liszka, there was no reason that Key West should conform to the typical tourist-driven template of high season/low season occupancy. Key West was sunny and strange all year round why should its visitors not take advantage of the fact all 365 days of the year? He felt the island needed an injection of fun, something exciting that would draw crowds and reinvigorate the community during what had become a decidedly dreary time to be in the Keys. Almost 40 years later, Fantasy Fest still celebrated during the 10 days leading up to Halloween has become the largest and most profitable of all of Key Wests events. Hotels, B&Bs, and private rental homes sell out months in advance, with nightly rates skyrocketing in response. (During 2015s space-themed Fantasy Fest, a single hotel room was reportedly rented for almost $700, double its yearly average rate of $350.) In the weeks leading up to Oct. 1, costume stores spring up seemingly overnight, their aisles overflowing with feather boas, fishnet stockings, masks, makeup and wigs. But for some annual attendees, prep begins far more than a few weeks before the festivals start. With many of the festivals events offering thousands of dollars in cash prizes, seasoned attendees begin work on their costumes six to eight months in advance, with results ranging from Broadway-worthy to bordering on obscene. Historically, Key West has been home to some of our nations most dedicated drinkers. Indeed, during Prohibition, Florida remained the wettest state in the Union, maintaining its tourist-driven economy thanks to regular ocean shipments of fish curiously shaped like bottles of bootleg liquor. Throughout the 1960s and 0s, drugs were sold on Duval Street with the kind of vocal salesmanship now relegated to Spring Break T-shirt hawkers. Though eventually the island was forced to clean up its act (thanks to a truly wonderful scheme perpetrated by FBI agents dressed as karate fans), there exists today a common misconception that during Fantasy Fest, the usual laws are suspended in favor of an agreed upon 10-day no-holds-barred celebration that would make Hieronymus Bosch blush. The truth, however, is a bit less exciting: On Friday, Oct. 28, and Saturday, Oct. 29, a barrier is established around a few blocks of Duval and its adjoining streets, creating an official Fantasy Zone, inside the perimeter of which revelers may carry open (plastic) containers of alcohol. Backpacks, coolers, water guns and replica weapons are banned for obvious reasons, while mounted officers astride a herd of formidable, glossy-coated police horses perform crowd-control duties. Technically, public nudity is illegal in Key West, but during Fantasy Fest that law in particular seems to stretch about a millimeter before its breaking point, much to the delight of participants (and, sometimes, to the horror of a few wideeyed Dutch families whose travel agent neglected to mention their vacation would coincide with the raunchiest time of the year). Body-painting studios pop up along the length of Duval Street, with women ranging from nubile to decrepit lining up to have their torsos painted which, the Key West police urge people to remember, still does not actually constitute wearing a top, and therefore request all bare breasts (painted to appear as twin basset hounds or otherwise) remain inside the designated Fantasy Zone. This years official Fantasy Fest themed Political Voodoo & Ballot Box Barbarians will begin with one of the events only PG-rated parties, the Goombay Festival. Spanning the weekend of Oct. 21, Goombay sees the historic neighborhood of Bahama Village turned into a kind of folksy, exuberant block party, complete with food and craft stalls, though the heart of the festival is undoubtedly the nonstop musical performances. Featuring a wide range of acts including reggae, funk and gospel, the stage at the intersection of Petronia and Fort Street becomes an inclusive dance party for the islands residents and tourists just beginning their Fantasy Fest vacation. Its a joyful two days, with this years accented by the return of the Cannonball Run Rolling Parade on Duval, the nations oldest car rally. A must-see for any car enthusiast, the rally recently celebrated its centennial, and this years relaunch on Friday the 21st promises an invigorated, unique collection; the rally drivers, whose journey begins in Massachusetts, will cruise through Key West before making their way to Cuba for the rallys last leg. Of course, no Fantasy Fest is complete without its special brand of monarchy. For those unfamiliar with the symbolic coronation of the king and queen of Fantasy Fest, youre in luck: A new exhibit, now open at the Custom House Museum, explores the incredible legacy of the king and queen campaign, which to date has raised millions for the local nonprofit AIDS Help. The exhibit, Fantasy Island, takes viewers through the history of Fantasy Fest and the fundraising efforts that those competing for the crown have produced over the years. After youve familiarized yourself with the process, youll feel at home attending the official royal coronation at the Casa Marina on Oct. 21. In true Key West fashion, the election of this years monarchy is less pomp and circumstance, more flamboyant fabulousness, with a two-hour stage show and appearances by local celebrities. Once crowned, the king and queen (awarded for having raised the most money for AIDS help during their campaign) will preside over the rest of the weeks parties, parades, galas and get-togethers.

There are no limits or expectations for costumes; some riders look ready for their next scene on The Walking Dead, while others might smear some fake blood on their shirt and call it a day, but the more effort you put into your costume, the better, since families camp out in chairs along the way, cheering and filming.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 NEWS A9King Neptunes Curse and the Spirits of the Long Dead party (but maybe shorten it to spooky boat party for the kiddos). Starting at 8 p.m., kids and adults can navigate the bowels of the historic ship while solving puzzles in an attempt to break Neptunes curse, thereby saving the entire world. Weve certainly accomplished less on a Friday night. Let the kids bask in the glory of their heroism, then leave them at home for a decidedly R-rated version of one of their favorite fairy tales. Peter Pans Adventures in Naughty Land: A Burlesque Parody will see Key Wests best burlesque performers team up with special guests bearing saucy names such as Moana Amour and Cheeky Derriere, all hell-bent on subverting the classic childrens story by way of artful striptease. The show runs for six nights only at the Waterfront Playhouse, and after the success of last years The Sexy Side of Star Wars, its sure to sell out fast. Though not an official Fantasy Fest event, the ever-popular Zombie Bike ride is certainly not to be missed. What started as a rag-tag bunch of weirdos careening down South Roosevelt has evolved into a trafficstopping, national news-covered theme ride from East Martello to downtown Duval Street. Though the event has become less of a ride than a start-and-stop, slow-moving parade of fantastically zombified riders trying not to crash into one another, bike traffic along the 4-mile route usually decongests enough toward the end of the highway to allow for a friendly breeze or two. There are no limits or expectations for costumes; some riders look ready for their next scene on The Walking Dead, while others might smear some fake blood on their shirt and call it a day, but the more effort you put into your costume, the better, since families camp out in chairs along the way, cheering and filming. Its a unique spectacle to be sure, so tell friends out of town to keep an eye out you might just make the evening news. Monday Oct. 24, starts out with a bang of a starters gun, that is, when the annual Heroes and Villians Run/Walk 5K takes off from the Southernmost Beach Caf. Dress up as your favorite hero or villain, make your way to the finish line as fast as you can, and youll be in the running (pun intended) for prizes such as funniest costume, most creative and more. The run ends, as all runs should, with a sunset beach party, after which the beach transforms into a pig roast. Thirty-five bucks gets you access to a buffet chock full of Cuban classics like soffritto, yucca, tostones, picadillo and, of course, roast pork. On the other side of the spectrum, the unofficial but always titillating Kellys Kinky Karnival kicks off at 9 p.m. Monday night, with costumes required for entry and make no mistake, these are some serious fetishists. The long-standing tradition has resulted in Monday nights becoming an informal Fetish Night island-wide. Keep an eye out for pop-up BDSM parties (how many times have you heard that one?) and enjoy wandering around the Fantasy Zone for your first glimpse at just how far some people try to push the boundaries of I swear, officer, Im not naked. Tuesday Oct. 25, offers up a whole range of festivities, including an animal-themed all-you-can-drink SPCA party, the official Fantasy Fest Poster Signing party, a Beach Bash featuring Patrick and the Swayzees, and of course, the always epic Captain Tonys Party in Plaid, aka the perfect excuse for having held onto those horrifying madras pants for all these years. For a more obvious thrill, theres also the Men of Labare Tighty Whitey Party, featuring the all-male Adonis-like revue made famous by the Magic Mike movies. Dress code encourages sexy white underwear (not an oxymoron, contrary to what your middle school bully might have told you) and tickets are limited. If it was good enough for national treasure Channing Tatum, its more than good enough for Key West. One of the favorite non-officially sponsored events is Tutu Tuesday at the Waterfront Brewery. This years theme is Tutus in Space. Wednesday through Saturday are when Fantasy Fest really gets going, with multiple themed parties some official, some unsanctioned happening throughout downtown. Some of the legendary ones: the Pet Masquerade, where a procession of costumed pets and their incredibly crafty owners make their way across a stage at the Casa Marina to compete for prizes; Wharfstock, where prototypical pirate hangout Schooner Wharf transforms itself into a psychedelic love-child groove fest, complete with body painting contest; the 34th annual Headdress Ball, where the phrase the closer the headdress, the closer to God gets tested out for serious cash prizes; the ABC party, where anything but clothes gets you in the door (the other side of which bunnies from Nevadas most famous brothel are waiting, along with exotic dancers and cash prizes to the most creative costumes); an all-day, all-night street fair with crafts, food and last-minute souvenirs; the 16th annual Living Art Expo, where the best human canvases are awarded thousands of dollars; a White Party, Red Party, Blue Party, Pink Party, Toga Party, Slumber Party, Kinky Couples Party, Glow Party, Pirate Party, Foam Party, Nerd Party and Pajama Party; and, of course, the Dungeon of Dark Secrets party, which is exactly what it sounds like. There are also two massive parades: the first, the locals-favorite Masquerade March. Thousands of costumed pedestrians gather to parade themselves through downtown to the delight of onlookers handing out shots and beads. And then, theres Saturdays pice de rsistance: The Fantasy Fest Parade, a confetti-throwing, band-booming, float-filled colorful masterpiece to end the festival on a very, very loud note. If youre still alive by Sunday, congratulations! May we suggest scraping yourself off the floor and attending the annual Fat Lady Sings Tea Dance at La Te Da. We have it on very good authority that yes, there will be a fat lady present; yes, she will sing and that afterwards, all of it eventually, finally will be over. At least, until next year. The full list of events, including tickets, start times and contact info for all official Fantasy Fest events, can be found at www. fantasyfest.com/ (those interested in attending any of the weeks unofficial events should utilize Facebook or http://fantasyfestparties.com/).

Request an appointment online at PhysiciansRegionalMedicalGroup.com or call 239-348-4221.Timothy Quinn, M.D. in Ophthalmology BEHIND THE WHEELLearn to love 100-plus mph with LexusAre you a slowpoke for driving 105 mph in a brand new Lexus? You are when the other three amateur drivers ahead of you pull away doing 120 mph. This is the Lexus Performance Driving School, a traveling classroom with a dozen professional drivers teaching regular folks how to attack a racetrack. Its a new program designed to prove to Lexus customers (and prospective ones) the virtues of the luxury brands performance engineering. The whole session is less of a sales pitch and more of a trial by fire in $80,000-plus cars. So its the exact opposite of Amway. In the case of the car that needed a prod beyond 105 mph, this was a game of follow the leader being played around Palm Beach International Raceway. If the group of four trailing cars can do its job of staying tight to the pro driver in front, then the whole group gets to go faster. Its a very rewarding system. Lexus chose a great spot for its inaugural driving school weekend, because this South Florida track is more than 2 miles worth of pavement with 10 unique turns. When piloting the nearly -mile straightway in a 467-hp Lexus GS F, its inevitable to hit speeds that would be a jailable offense on public roads. This track session is part of a fourstation program that also includes a maneuvering course, wet road skidpad and a timed road course, all specially assembled to showcase Lexuss F-Performance division. Where BMW has M and Mercedes has AMG, a Lexus with an F in its name has been re-engineered to be a speedy luxury machine. But the buying public isnt necessarily aware how much is really altered under this performance banner. Lexus has been around for nearly three decades. The first two were devoted to proving that the Japanese brands were capable of providing topquality luxury cars. By the time Lexus debuted the high-performance F moniker in 2007, it was so well established as a rock-solid luxury provider that speedy machines were often perceived as an afterthought. The company has been turning the tide with cars like the very limited edition LFA supercar, and now its looking to kick up its full mainstream street cred. With the RC F already on the market and the GS F fresh to dealer showrooms, theres a major push to prove this is more than just leather-clad luxury with a big V8 stuffed under the hood. The time at the raceway isnt filled with jargon about transmission settings or why the adjustable torque-vectoring differential makes all the difference in the GS F. Instead, its about showcasing how much engineering goes into F-Performance machines by having drivers discover their individual limits on a racecourse. In the process, it fulfills a childhood fantasy of being tossed the keys to an exotic sports car with the only instruction to Go crazy, kid. While the day is rewarding to everyone who enjoys thrashing around expensive performance machines that dont belong to them, Lexus does make sure to end on a humble reminder. International pro driver Scott Pruett recently started racing Lexus GT3s, and so the company brought him in to show us all what hot laps were really all about. For a man who has won at Le Mans, a few laps at Palm Beach is easier than most of our morning commutes. Being a passenger for this all-out mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com
demonstration is already worth the price of admission. But surprisingly, Pruetts top speed in a GS F was only 14 mph more than the earlier amateur rounds. That says a lot for the confidence a good sports car can inspire. But for a man who makes his living knowing the definition of an apex, the GS F allowed Pruett to grip every corner with a roller-coaster level of G-force. And his total lap times proved he could, literally, run circles around the rest of us Sunday drivers. It was a heart-stopping demonstration of what it takes to be a real professional racer, and a humbling reminder that we still have plenty to learn when this traveling school comes back to Florida next year.

All are welcome. An emeritus professor of sociology at Idaho State University, Mr. Aho will discuss his year-long research that culminated in Far-Right Fantasy: A Sociology of American Religion and Politics, his 10th book, which was published earlier this year. In it, he explores movements many fueled by religious beliefs that call for rebellion against the U.S. government. He writes that ultra-rightists are almost exclusively white, middleaged Baptists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians and Mormons, animated by a doctrine known as Dominionism, a belief based on scripture that God has commanded mankind to reconstruct America based on biblical and constitutional teachings. Some examples of actions triggered by such ideology include the anti-Masonic movement in the 1830s, the Civil War, McCarthyism in the 1950s and the religious-right revolution of the 1980s led by influential Christians such as the Rev. Pat Robertson. The most recent example is the tea party movement that arose after the election of President Barack Obama. Mr. Aho theorizes such movements to return to what believers feel were better times in America happen in 30-year cycles, or roughly once each generation. What can fuel such revolutionary fires even more these days, however, is access to social media and the internet in general, places where people with like ideas can more easily connect with one another. Mr. Aho writes that the danger of echo-chamber communications systems emblematic of the far right is that they nurture prejudice and prepare audiences psychologically to commit detestable deeds in good conscience. Mr. Aho taught at ISU for more than 40 years. He won the Gustavus Myers Award in 1994 for the best study of human rights in North America. His appearance at FGCU is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and supported by a donation from the Seidler family. The free lecture is open to the public. Refreshments will be served at 6 p.m. and Mr. Aho will speak at 6:30 p.m. To register, go to www.fgcu.edu/caslectures.

GUEST OPINIONThree years later, Hogan well fracking continues to haunt us BY JENNIFER HECKERFracking at the Collier Hogan well in 2013 is continuing to threaten Collier Countys water supplies. Earlier this month, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection issued a troubling warning letter to the Dan A. Hughes Company, outlining that the company had illegally dumped waste from its fracking operation down the Hogan well, putting Southwest Florida groundwater at even greater risk of contamination. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida immediately reviewed all of the supporting documents, along with our technical and legal experts, and found a myriad of serious problems. The overwhelming evidence of failures in the well construction, lack of adequate groundwater monitoring and the insufficiency of remedial action is alarming. This situation underscores how risky and irresponsible it is to use these techniques without any independent scientific evaluation as to their potential risks and impacts on Floridas unique geology and hydrology. The bottom line is that we are just as much at risk today as we were in 2013 when the well was fracked. These unproven oil well stimulation treatments involving the underground injection of toxic chemicals (fracking and matrix acidizing) are still legally allowed without the state having the express authority to restrict or prohibit their usage. They can still occur without the local government or the public being notified or having the ability to obtain any information about them, due to drillers exploiting a trade secret public records exemption to have that information withheld from the public. The legislation that was introduced and failed last year would have caused more harm than good, as it would have excluded the most common frackinglike technique, matrix acidizing, while removing existing local governmental authorities ability to stop irresponsible drilling activities. Collier County residents should immediately engage to protect themselves and the water supplies we rely upon. We need to collectively advocate for the following: DEP to immediately resume ongoing deep groundwater testing at the Hogan well site to monitor for any potential migration of contaminants into underground water supply sources. Collier County to add a legislative priority that all oil well stimulation treatments be immediately suspended, and a three-year independent study be undertaken to fully evaluate all potential risks and impacts. Additionally, Collier County should state it would strongly oppose any legislation that reduces or eliminates any of its home rule authorities to restrict or prohibit inappropriate oil and gas activities in our community. State legislators to introduce and pass a suspension and study bill to immediately stop the use of these well stimulation treatments and to commission an independent neutral entity, such as an academic institution, to undertake the comprehensive study. By attending the Collier County Commission meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 25, and contacting ones state legislators, citizens can create the political will needed to stop inappropriate oil activities in our community. Additionally, to learn more about this important emerging potential threat to our water and quality of life, we encourage everyone to attend the second Florida Fracking Summit at Florida Gulf Coast University on Wednesday, Nov. 2. This is a free public event featuring national experts. Register at www. flfrackingsummit.org. To learn more about what you can do, visit www.conservancy.org/oil.

Extreme hobbiesJohn Weigel and Olaf Danielson are engaged in a frenzied battle of extreme bird watching, each hoping to close out 2016 as the new North American champ of the American Birding Association. A September Smithsonian article had Weigel ahead, 763 to 759. Danielson is perhaps better known for doing much of his birding in the nude (and is the author of the provocatively titled volume, Boobies, Peckers and Tits all common names of popular birds). The old one-year record was 749, and the association attributes the larger numbers this year to El Nino, which has disrupted food supplies and driven birds into different locations.Fine points of the law Senate bill 1342, passed in the Idaho legislature earlier in 2016, authorizes schools to use the Bible as a reference in classrooms (despite the U.S. Supreme Courts having specifically condemned a previous version of the bill ever since 1964). The bills sponsor, Rep. Sage Dixon, said he thought his law was nonetheless constitutional because, The little Supreme Court in my head says this is OK. (Even so, Gov. C.L. Otter vetoed the bill.) Nebraska voters in November will be asked whether to keep the states longstanding death penalty for murder even though retaining it will require them to vote repeal. The legislature replaced death row last year with mandatory life sentences, and the referendum is to repeal or retain that legislation. Hence, to abolish the death penalty, voters must select retain. The state attorney general, and election officials, declined to challenge the confusing arrangement, instead suggesting that Nebraskans are smart enough to figure the whole thing out. The Arizona legislature passed a child-molestation law recently that made any adult contact with childrens genitals a criminal act, but unlike in other states similar laws, neglected to include a requirement that the outlawed contact be for sexual purposes. Consequently, in principle, parents may be criminally liable, for example, for bathing a baby or changing its diaper. The Arizona Supreme Court ruled in September that it is up to the legislature to change the law, but some lawmakers professed indifference, confident that district attorneys will use good judgment about whom to prosecute.Fun with pennies Robert Napolitan, 34, was arrested in Taylor, Pa., in September and charged with theft of a drum containing 300,000 pennies from his employer, Pyne Freight Lines. That steel drum weighs several tons and, of course, netted Napolitan only $3,000. (By contrast, in New York Citys Diamond District in September, a brazen thief made off with a 5-gallon drum containing 86 pounds of something else gold flakes, valued at more than $1 million and is still at large.) For some reason, according to a High Point, N.C., TV report, Larry Hall of Randolph County took seven-plus weeks out of his life recently and glued pennies to cover (except for windows and chrome) his 2000 Chevrolet Blazer (a total of 51,300 coins).Great art The 1,496-page German novel Bottoms Dream, translated into (broken) English, more than twice as long as War and Peace, recently reached U.S. bookstores as a 13-pound behemoth, bound with a 14-inch spine that, based on a September Wall Street Journal description, will almost surely go unread. The story follows two translators and their teenage daughter over a single day as they try to interpret the works of Edgar Allen Poe, making for slow going for anyone not already conversant with Poe.Bright ideas While other vehicle safety-control engineers work on actually slowing down cars and buses when a risk is detected on the road ahead, one of Vo lvos recent innovations appears aimed merely at bullying pedestrians to get out of the way. According to a September report on Treehugger.com, the safety control for a Volvo bus consists of progressively louder horn-honking to scare off the pedestrian. British farmer Pip Simpson, who lost nearly 300 sheep to rustlers in recent years, recently sprayed his remaining herd of almost 800 sheep a bright luminous orange (harmless, he said, though the sheeps opinions are unknown) to make them less attractive to thieves. Saudi Arabia switched to the 365day Gregorian calendar on Oct. 2, in part to reduce government expenses. Bureaucrats had been using the Islamic lunar Hijri (354day) calendar, but now must work a 3 percent longer year for the same salaries.Latest religious messages In 2014, British entrepreneur Azad Chaiwala, 33, created the matchmaking service Second Wife because, just as men have trouble finding that special person, some Mormons, Muslims and others have at least as much trouble finding that special additional person. (Most clients, he said, are in the United States and the United Kingdom, though bigamy is illegal in both places.) The service was so successful that Chaiwala this year inaugurated Polygamy. com, which he adamantly defended as a moral alternative to adultery and onenight-stand services such as Tinder.Police report The long-rap-sheeted Darren Clinton, 48, was in the process, according to Minneapolis police, of burglarizing a hotel room in September when an occupant returned and surprised him. Clinton, wielding a knife, escaped momentarily, but the occupant summoned his nearby roommates the visiting University of Arizona mens cross-country team and after a chase, which included jumping several barriers, the runners steered a severely winded Clinton into the arms of a state trooper.

Survey shows employers, CEOS can make significant impact on health in the workplace THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATIONThe workplace might be a barrier to mental health and healthy lifestyle goals, with more than a quarter of employees (28 percent) experiencing stress as a result of work always, almost always or very often. This finding demonstrates that employers and CEOs have a clear and critical role in motivating employees to focus on their health and well-being, according to a national survey recently released from the American Heart Association CEO Roundtable. The Nielsen survey found that 40 percent of employees say they want their employer to recognize the level of stress employees are under, followed by allowing for flexibility when they work (30 percent) or where they work (26 percent) in order to reduce or manage their workplace stress. Nearly half (48 percent) say occasionally unplugging or disconnecting from technology has a positive effect on their stress levels. The AHA CEO Roundtables 26 members represent some of the nations largest and most influential corporations and organizations. Under the scientific guidance of the AHA, the group serves as an incubator for new ideas to change the dynamic of health and engagement in the workplace through evidencebased approaches. The objective of the CEO Roundtable is to build a culture of health and wellness in the workplace, says roundtable co-chair Henry Kravis, the Co-CEO of KKR. This latest study reinforces the substantial impact health and wellness programs can have on employee engagement and the responsibility of the CEO to lead by example. The survey results point to key actions employers can take to improve health and well being at their organization. Additional highlights include:Leadership is critical when it comes to addressing obstacles in the workplace that hinder employee health and well-being. Employees who reported knowing their CEO participates in company health programs are much more likely than those who say their CEO does not participate to participate themselves, ultimately reporting better productivity, improved work quality and higher job satisfaction. Understanding health priorities and variances by generation is key to the success of a workplace health program. For example, younger millennials are more likely than older millennials, Generation Xers and baby boomers to say that getting more sleep is in their top three health and lifestyle goals. Gen Xers and baby boomers, on the other hand, are more likely than younger and older millennials to list losing weight as a goal.Sleep is essential to well being and productivity at work. On average, employees say they are getting close to the recommended amount of sleep per night at 6.7 hours, but only one in four say the quality of sleep they get is excellent or very good. The findings support some strategies that we have deployed within Nielsen, says Mitch Barns, CEO of Nielsen and an AHA CEO Roundtable member. We have seen measurable improvements in innovative health programming that serves the specific needs of employees and that builds a supportive culture that promotes health and productivity.

Failure of oral preventive drugs is reported most often from the Mississippi Delta area, where transmission rates are very high and resistance to preventive drugs has been confirmed, said Dr. John McCall, professor emeritus in the Department of Infectious Diseases at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. But the spreading of resistance to other parts of the country is just a matter of time. The threat of heartworm that cant be prevented with our present drugs is not a minor one. Infection with heartworm, a parasite spread by mosquitos, can cause life-threatening immune system reactions, respiratory distress, kidney failure, heart failure and other symptoms in both cats and dogs. However, theres some good news, too. McCall recently published a study of a new two-step approach to fighting heartworm infection in dogs, one that targets both the heartworm and the mosquito that carries it. Heartworm is a two-parasite system, said Dr. Elizabeth Hodgkins, director of veterinary relations for Ceva Animal Health, which makes Vectra 3D, a topical mosquito repellent and insecticide for dogs that also fights fleas and ticks. Until now, we have not targeted one of these parasites, the mosquito. Weve relied on preventive drugs against the worm to do the heavy lifting alone. This flies in the face of how human public health programs fight mosquito-carried diseases like Zika virus, where the mosquito is always the primary target. Not only that, but putting all your health eggs in one prevention basket will always be less effective than protecting against disease with more than one strategy. When you get a flu vaccine, you still take other precautions, dont you? asked Hodgkins. You still wash your hands and avoid standing in the air space of someone whos coughing. You know there are other things you need to do to give that vaccine the best chance to keep you from getting sick. Its the same, she said, with heartworm. When it comes to preventing the spread of resistant heartworm outside the South, or protecting dogs in areas where resistance is already present, targeting the mosquito is a valuable extra layer of prevention. Resistance is thwarted because the topical medication stops more than 95 percent of mosquitos from biting protected dogs. As a result, the dog has a greatly reduced risk of getting infected and so does an uninfected mosquito, who might bite an infected dog later. That stops the transmission of both resistant and nonresistant heartworm. On top of that, the repellent and insecticide killed 98 percent of the mosquitos exposed to a protected dog. Thats good news for everyone, including humans, cats and other pets, who would benefit from a reduced mosquito population. In areas where mosquitoes are abundant, hundreds, and possibly thousands, of mosquitoes can bite a dog in in a 24-hour period, said McCall. The use of a repellent and insecticide could reduce this by 95 percent or more for an entire month. While theres no such thing as 100 percent protection when it comes to living creatures, this double-defense of topical repellent and oral preventive medication is about as close as you can get. Although cats also suffer from heartworm infection, there is currently no repellent safe for use on them. Owners of both cats and dogs should keep the treated dog away from the cat until the topical repellent is fully dry, usually a few hours after application.Dog owners can learn more at fightheartwormnow.com, and should consult their veterinarian about how to best protect their pets from heartworm infection.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 NEWS A23 IN A HURRY? NEED IT YESTERDAY? Remember, Everything on Our Warehouse Floor, Buy It Today, Take It Home With You or Have It Delivered Next Day! THE DIVA DIARIESA single girl and her ChardonnayLately, I have been eating cheese and crackers with a side of Chardonnay regularly for dinner. That is, when Im actually HOME for dinner. My husband, Todd, has been in Michigan for a work conference for nearly a week and right after I dropped him off at the airport, I pretty much immediately reverted back to my single girl ways. It was a Sunday and I called a girlfriend from the car as I drove away from RSW to ask her to meet me for brunch where I had egg white omelets and bottomless mimosas. Single Girl Me was always ordering the more dietetic choice, but when Todd orders cheese grits and bacon, I figure I will too. Afterward, I walked around and played Pokmon for more than an hour. Then I lounged by the pool and enjoyed diet ginger ale and vodka because I didnt need to make dinner. The next night I went to a party. The next day, I lingered over a 2-hour lunch with friends because I didnt have to go grocery shopping. Oh and I didnt work out, either. Its not that I HAVE to shop or make dinner or work out when my husbands around, its just that when youre a couple, you have a routine. Its a good routine, its comfortable and cozy, and its a marriage thing. Todd and I rarely travel separately neither of us have jobs that take us away often so, trust me, Im not used to this. Ive not made the bed once since hes been gone and Ive even forgotten to feed the cats a couple of times, because I do it in the morning and Todd does it in the evening. One night, I went to dinner with a girlfriend and kept checking the time because Todd and I usually watch The Voice on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. I went to another party on Wednesday night where almost all the guests asked, Wheres Todd? Its not so much that were joined at the hip, but well, were a little joined at the hip. During the week of his absence, Id planned to deep clean the lanai, do a ton of paperwork that Id been putting off and get an oil change for my car. But, instead, when I wasnt lounging on the couch in my oldest, rattiest T-shirt watching Sex and The City reruns, I was out partying like Carrie Bradshaw, minus the Cosmos (too sweet), cigarettes (I quit six years ago) and the stiletto heels (that ship has sailed). I havent even checked the mail. And as busy as I am with eating out, enjoying cocktails, and letting the house go to hell in a handbasket, I really, really, really miss my husband and have found the time to look forward to all of his texts and phone calls. I spoke with one friend whos been married a fairly long time and she and her husband travel a bit more frequently for work than we do. She told me that she and he dont talk much at all when traveling, Its not bad to take a little break we check in to say goodnight, but thats about all. I could see how the reunion would be even sweeter that way. But, no, I need to be in touch. I just cant Face Time with Todd in the kitchen because the sink is full of dishes. The party is over, though Todd returns the day after tomorrow and I now have to accomplish all my to-do goals in one short day. The first few days were fun and novel, but the sparkle of being a single girl has worn off. Besides, not only do I miss Todd I miss The Voice. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

The quality of service provided can end up being the final competition for your dollar. From a worldrenowned luxury hotel company to a family-oriented ice cream shop, we found six local firms that excel at serving the Great American Consumer, although there are no doubt hundreds more in Southwest Florida. They shared with us some of their thoughts on guest service, why its so important, and how they get employees to buy into the ethos of putting customers first, day in and day out. Waterside Shops, NaplesWith more than 60 stores and its signature fountains, pools and waterfalls, Waterside Shops has long been a Naples destination for upscale shopping and dining. Maintaining a sterling reputation takes daily vigilance and an eye for detail. One of the things that I was taught early in my career is that if a customer has a really, really positive experience in a retail environment, she might not tell anybody about it or one friend, said Anne Fleming, Watersides general manager. On the other hand, if she has a bad experience she might tell at least three and as many as 10. That adage is amplified by the internet. We really want to go the extra mile to make sure if he comes to Waterside Shops or she comes to Waterside Shops, theyre going to walk away being wowed, she said. For us thats in a subtle, understated way but we want them to feel they had a very special experience. That includes carefully selecting tenants such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany & Company, and BrickTops Restaurant, and Six Southwest Florida companies where the No. 1 customer is you COURTESY PHOTOShoppers at Waterside Shops, Naples.BUSINESS & REAL ESTATEFLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 | SECTION BWWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM INSIDEOn the MoveWhos going where, doing what on the local business scene.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYattending to details on a 24-hour basis, from the crew that comes in to clean the floors at night to landscapers that ensure you dont see a weed. Nobodys ever going to say, I went to Waterside Shops and I didnt see a weed, but theyre going to say I went to Waterside Shops and its so beautiful and so clean, Ms. Fleming said. So that level of service, that attention to the tiniest detail is what any fine hotel, any fine restaurant, or any fine retailer would expect. And the customers who we have in this town are used to that and expect that. Employees attend to concierge services such as complimentary valet parking or an escort who will show up with a big umbrella or in a golf cart to show you to your car in case of rain. We love to have little surprises that are unexpected, positive surprises like that that people find out about, Ms. Fleming said. She also encourages feedback from staff and from guests, whether positive or negative. An unhappy customer is a really wonderful opportunity to become a hero, she said. And we believe in that. We believe in being the hero anytime you can.The Ritz-Carlton, NaplesThe Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company as much as any business is renowned for its gold-standard guest service practices. So it may be no surprise that the company, which was founded in 1982, is a sought out advisor for other businesses looking to hone best practices. Thats part of Antonia Hocks mission as vice president of The Ritz-Carlton Leadership Center. Ms. Hock said she is often asked, How do you make employees deliver great service? You cant is my answer. You have to hire people who have a heart of service or they have the right cultural fit for your organization because if you bring in people who share your values, who share your worldview, your outlook on customer service, it becomes a natural and genuine behavior. And you enhance it through training programs, but if its not innate to an employee, youll never be able to make them do it. The company regards customer feedback as a gift, Ms. Hock said, and constantly monitors it through interactions during guests stays as well as traditional surveys and online sites. Also, a daily lineup is a mandatory practice that keeps standards up to par for every employee, from Ms. Hock and company executives to bartenders and housekeepers in Naples. They gather for 10 or 15 minutes before a shift to talk about service values and needs, for example, special events like a large dinner party that requires help from team members across different departments. Encouraging employees to help each other out or resolve guest problems immediately and outside of their strictly defined job duties is part of the spirit of service that defines Ritz-Carlton culture, Ms. Hock said. That means our employees are empowered to act. Each of our employees has empowerment they can use to resolve a problem on the spot with a guest.Fine Folk Pizza, Fort MyersFine Folk Handcrafted Artisan Pizza has quickly built a reputation for guest service as well as delicious pizza. Owners Michael DeNunzio and Brianne Chrisenberry, a young couple who moved here from New Jersey where Mr. DeNunzios family has a pizza shop, opened up Fine Folk one year ago on Oct. 19. Mr. DeNunzio, who is 32, recalled having his first restaurant job at 12 and becoming a manager at age 15. I was totally underqualified. It was a really bad choice on their part, he laughs. We did the best we could. It was also a lesson in how to run a business the right way, by always putting your guest first and creating an extremely positive work environment where people want to be. That includes hiring people for their positive personalities, more than just their skills, and promoting an environment where people have fun and are encouraged to help their co-workers succeed. For pizza makers, for instance, making it to the next pay grade includes a rite of passage: stretching out a large pizza with the right toppings in one minute and 20 seconds while a rock song such as Final Countdown blasts away. I think when the team is having a good time at work it really shows in our guest service, Mr. DeNunzio said. Customers also appreciate small details, such as delivery personnel who show up wearing ties and carrying a dog bone for pets; or, for kids, tableside dough stretching lessons. They dont usually expect something like that to occur so that kind of goes into our philosophy of always doing a little bit more than whats expected to try to really create that wow, that lasting impact, to make sure theyre really into what we do hopefully by going the extra mile to see that we care. Showing a genuine sense of caring is even more important now that experiences can be shared quickly and widely online. He said Ms. Chrisenberry came up with an idea to give employees cards with a prize such as a free pizza that they can hand out if they witness a random act of kindness. He gave one away the other day when another driver pulled up to say hed left his gas tank cap open. He was super stoked, Mr. DeNunzio said.Harborwalk Scoops & Bites Punta GordaRon and Claudia Thomas opened their ice cream shop Harborwalk Scoops & Bites six years ago in Punta Gorda. Last year, TripAdvisor said they were the No. 1 ice cream shop in the U.S. I think, for us, when people come to a shop, particularly because this is such a family oriented business, its really important that you have a connection with individuals more than just a business transaction, Mr. Thomas said. We really are trying to develop a bond with our customers over time. I think the only way to do that is to be sincere, to be thankful and provide good service every single time. That starts with who they hire, people who share the owners upbeat attitude, a sense of empathy, and enjoy working with families and people of all ages. As a small business with seven employees and one location, Mr. and Ms. Thomas are often there to see for themselves that service is running smoothly. Assessing and anticipating what customers will want in the future is one of the ongoing challenges of service. That has included expanding flavors from 16 to 44, and offering options such as shaved ice and sorbet for those who go without gluten, for instance. We want people when they walk through the door to really feel like theyre wanted, he said. That were really genuinely happy when theyre here, because thats the way I want to feel when I go to a business. Fostering that atmosphere is for him based on mutual respect between employees, owners, customers and suppliers. He said, Its not a particularly complicated process to provide good customer service, but the benefits of doing it every day, particularly in a small town like Punta Gorda the good word of what we do spreads so quickly. All American Pet Resorts Fort Myers and Punta GordaIn providing upscale boarding and grooming services for cats and dogs, All American Pet Resorts has three VIP customers: the pets, their owners, and their employees. I think one of the things that differentiate us is that we treat our staff as though they are customers, because they really are, said Kathy Kresge, who co-founded the franchise company 10 years ago in Punta Gorda. She is its chief administrative officer and owns a Fort Myers location. With franchisee locations in other states, she pointed out the importance of a corporate structure and operations manual in delivering consistently excellent service. In our business where customer service is key it cant be me in all locations delivering my style of customer service.We have to have employees that have the same degree of passion that we do. Happy people deliver good service. That starts with hiring practices. The first thing is they must love animals, she said. Once I know theyve got that heart then I can teach them how to exceed customers expectations. To monitor service, she uses Listen360, a company that provides software to survey customers each month with simple questions that rate the business on a scale one to 10. The answers are analyzed and offer feedback to owners on how they can improve service. It can also help monitor websites such as Google and Yelp. All American Resorts tailors services to pet owners needs such as being able to pick up and drop off a pet any time, day or night. Communication is also key, including email updates on how pets are doing, and webcams that allow customers to monitor their pets at any time. Anticipating what customers want is one of the challenges of good service, such as the ability to text reservation requests. A question thats often on her mind: Whats the next thing my customers want that makes it easier to do business with me?Acme Bicycle Shop, Punta GordaExcellent customer service extends from the door of Karen Freemans bicycle shop to the streets of Punta Gorda where she leads regular free group outings. Like I tell people, when youre in a car you have blinders on, she said. You get on a bike, thats how you find out what your neighborhoods about because you ride all over. Ms. Freeman, who started Acme Bicycle Shop 14 years ago, knows those streets and many of her customers well. Service starts when they walk in the door with an acknowledgement within about 10 seconds and a helpful attitude, she said, without being pushy. She hires employees who are riders so they can talk to people rider to rider and in laymans terms without getting too technical. We just let them take their time and see what we can help them with, she said. We always let them know were aware of them in the store. The shop sends out postcards to people a few weeks after they have purchased a bicycle to thank them and check on any concerns they might have, and offers lifetime yearly tune-ups and free labor on flat tires. Ms. Freeman leads bike rides out of the shop every Saturday at 8:30 a.m. as well as in the evenings on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. Many of her customers are new to the area. Shell take them to some of her favorite spots such as a cemetery or show them a good spot to launch a kayak. Others havent ridden on the streets before. (When) they come back with this huge smile on their face then you know youve done a good job, Ms. Freeman said.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 BUSINESS B5 MONEY & INVESTINGChinas export decline will affect markets worldwideIt has been a while since news out of China dominated financial headlines. In the last quarter of 2015 and early 2016, the slowdown in the Chinese economy weighed on financial markets across the globe, but since then traders have been focused on Brexit, the Fed and the upcoming election so little attention was paid. But last week, a stunning number brought all eyes back to the most populous nation on earth. What was this release and how will this affect markets here in the U.S.? The Chinese government reported that exports dropped 10 percent in September, the largest such drop since February. To compare, analysts expected around a 3 percent drop, especially since exports only fell 2.8 percent in August. In addition, imports into China also fell compared to an increase in imports in the previous month. Such a dramatic fall in exports and imports from the second largest economy in the world is clearly a negative indicator for the health of the global economy. Economists have predicted that political turmoil in Europe and the U.S. would put pressure on world trade this year and this may be further evidence of those events.This slowdown in its manufacturing sector could not come at a worse time for China. The government already had its hands full with a housing bubble and rising personal and corporate debt throughout the country. In addition, the countrys plan to grow its middle class and consumption within the country assumed that exports would be someone level so as to maintain steady employment.But beyond China, many analysts believe a slowdown in Chinese exports could have a significant effect here in the U.S. First, economists predict that China will depreciate its currency to stimulate its declining exporting sector. This is in stark contrast to the dollar which is expected to appreciate in the months ahead as the Fed raises interest rates. Companies that export abroad will be negatively affected by this change while importers and consumer will benefit from lower prices. Second, a lack of Chinese trade will negatively affect energy prices, raw material prices, shipping companies, and other sectors that rely on continued growth out of China. The countrys GDP is still anticipated to grow more than 6 percent in the third quarter but that figure did not anticipate this fall in exports. If this number is not an anomaly but instead the start of a trend, we can easily see China lead the world into another global recession. So it is no surprise that stock markets around the world are on edge after last weeks report. Clearly one economic number from one country will not make or break our financial markets. But will it be the factor that causes the Fed not to raise rates this year? Will it cause business leaders to postpone investments in new plants or employees? How will the largest importer of oil affect the next OPEC meeting? Once again, China must be on investors radar as we approach the end of 2016.

That company bought Vulcraft, a steel joist and girder company, in 1962. In 1965 my new president helped me avoid bankruptcy by selling off some of my businesses and turning me into a steelmaker. My mini mills took off, and as I grew, I shortened my name. Today Im the largest steelmaker in the U.S., and North Americas biggest recycler. Among other things, my products include carbon and alloy steel in many forms. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Medicare Advantage PlansMore than 57 million Americans are enrolled in Medicare, but only about 38 million are enrolled in original Medicare which consists of Part A and Part B, respectively covering hospital and medical services. What are the remaining 18 millionplus signed up for? Well, many have opted for Medicare Advantage plans.Medicare enrollees get to choose original Medicare or Medicare Advantage plans and can change between them at least once a year, too, during the annual enrollment period.Medicare Advantage plans, sometimes referred to as Part C, are offered by private insurance companies. Theyre regulated by the U.S. government, though, and are required to provide at least as much coverage as original Medicare and they often offer significantly more coverage. While original Medicare doesnt cover hearing, vision and/or dental care, many Medicare Advantage plans do and they generally include prescription drug coverage, as well. Original Medicare will often have you footing 20 percent of many bills with no end in sight. A Medicare Advantage plan, meanwhile, might charge you a low co-pay per doctor visit or service and will also cap your out-of-pocket spending. There are some downsides, of course. For example, while original Medicare lets you see any health care provider who accepts Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans will typically limit you to a network of doctors though these networks are sometimes very large. Original Medicare wont cover you outside the U.S., but some Medicare Advantage plans do offer limited coverage abroad. To help determine your best choice, make a list of the prescription drugs you take and the doctors you see. Also list the kinds of health care services you need and use, noting any upcoming surgeries or big-ticket expenses. When you review the plans youre considering, see which drugs they cover and which doctors are included and how much youll likely spend out of pocket with each option. The Medicare website, at medicare.gov, offers a tool to help you compare and choose. Note the star ratings of your candidate plans and favor fouror five-star plans. Rookie ErrorsIn the late 1990s, a friend used to show me his portfolio, and I thought I would like to have something to show him, as well. So I opened up a brokerage account and started putting $500 a month into it. Mistake No. 1 was buying ticker symbols, not businesses. I was buying whatever was popular (i.e., tech stocks), with little thought about what those companies actually did. Mistake No. 2 was using margin (i.e., investing with money borrowed from the brokerage). I always owed money and was paying interest. Mistake No. 3 was putting additional money that I needed in the next few years into stocks. As you probably suspect, when the market crashed, I had to sell many of my stocks to cover my margin debts (because the lower the value of your account, the less you can borrow). Within about six months, my accounts value went from around $100,000 to $3,000. At that point, I closed the account and vowed never to invest again. Later, I did a lot of reading and learning about investing and Im back at it, but much more sensibly. S.B., McKinney, TexasThe Fool Responds: Not knowing exactly what youre investing in, or why, or whether its attractively priced is very dangerous. Margin, meanwhile, is appealing because it can amplify your gains but it amplifies your losses, too. You should be enjoying better results now! A Super MarketShares of grocery giant Kroger (NYSE: KR) recently hit a 52-week low, making it even more attractive as an investment. Kroger has been facing challenges such as falling food prices and increased competition. Thats especially tough in an industry known for narrow profit margins. Still, Kroger is a top performer with a lot in its favor. For starters, its industry is defensive. During hard economic times, consumers will cut back on or delay spending on cars, appliances, vacations and other nonessential expenses. Theyll keep spending on categories such as electricity, medicines and groceries, though. Krogers strength is reflected in the fact that its sales in stores open a year or longer have been growing each quarter since 2004 through economic downturns and upturns. Price cuts have hurt its profit margin, but it has more than made up for that through increased volume. Kroger has also been boosting business in its 2,700-plus stores via a growing line of store-branded products that now generate about a quarter of its revenue. It has acquired some competitors, too, such as Harris Teeter and Roundys. Patient believers can enjoy Krogers dividend, which recently yielded 1.6 percent. It has been growing by an annual average of 18 percent over the past five years and still has room to grow. You might want to add shares of Kroger to your shopping cart. Im Americas oldest brewery, tracing m y roots back to 1829, and in 2012 I became the largest U.S.-owned brewery, too. Many people think my name is Chinese, but my founder, who settled in Pottsville, Pennsylv ania, hailed from Germany. A fifth-generation family member now runs me, with his daughters. During Prohibition, I switched to making near-beer products, and opened a dairy, too, which remained open until 1985. I began offering ice cream again in 2014, via a company unaffiliated with my brewery. I distribute my beer to 18 states and the District of Columbia. Who am I? (Answer: Yuengling) Putting Your Funds in FundsQWhat can I do if I want to invest in a particular mutual fund and my brokerage says it cant help me? F.M., Woodville, MichiganABrokerages vary in the funds they offer. Some offer hundreds, some relatively few. A brokerage may not offer a fund you want, or it may not be able to get you into it if the fund is closed to new investors. Funds will sometimes be closed if the managers believe they have more money than they can invest effectively. (Thats a good thing. Lots of funds just keep taking money, even if they have to park much of it in less promising investments.) Some funds will just do a soft close, though. That means they wont accept new shareholders coming in from third parties such as brokerages, but they will let you invest directly through them, such as via their companys website. It can be convenient to invest in funds through your brokerage, as youll be able to move money between funds and fund companies more easily though there will likely be a commission fee charged. But know that you can usually invest in an open fund directly, via the fund company itself. ***QDo I, a single person, need life insurance? S.W., Nags Head, North CarolinaANot necessarily. Insurance is primarily protection against a financial loss, not an investment. (There are, after all, more effective ways to invest.) If anyone (such as a partner, children, or even your parents) is depending on your income or is tied to any of your debts, such as a mortgage, then buying life insurance is smart. But if no one will be financially hurt should your income stream disappear, consider parking your money elsewhere. Want more information about stocks?

We live on Useppa, a 100-acre island situated about 3 miles off the coast of Pine Island. Mostly a second home community, our Season begins right around Thanksgiving. Everyone then disappears until a day or two after Christmas. Such has been the pattern since we first arrived over 30 years ago. This year is different! More than a few families stayed into June, when Easter, no matter when it came, was historically the signal, The Season was over! There were even a number of families that stayed the entire summer, with even more planning to do so next year. And more have been returning early, but early October? Its not TIME for them to come back. How do we know thats happening? Telephone and Internet services are being taken off vacation mode. Pool Services say theyve been prepping pools for the last few weeks and forwarded mail is already arriving at Post Offices. Wait a minute, Fall just started. It could be the weather. The Farmers Almanac is predicting snow piling up on the plains, low temps and above normal precipitation in the northeast, along with a particularly cold and wet winter for the mid-Atlantic. So, maybe they are being called early to the Sunshine State. We like to think they have fallen in love. Regardless, we are more than happy to meet, greet and share our very special island with those seeking a gentler, warmer and fun place to be.

Putnam. 352 pages. Hardcover, $27. Pythons, orange trees of ancient stock, infidelity, madness and greed. Is that all there is? Well, no. There is Randy Wayne Whites gloriously complicated, totally unglamorous and fiercely independent Hannah Smith. As in much of Mr. Whites previous work, Floridas history and natural assets are much in evidence, as is the authors interest in saving whats left of the states indigenous wildlife and ecosystem. In many of his novels, Mr. White makes science interesting, and Seduced is no exception. The extended, plausibly introduced discussions on how orange trees propagate, along with the reasons for finding clones of the original 16th century stock brought by Spanish adventurers, are almost addictive. DNA issues, patents on seed development processes and the money to be made from disease-resistant strains of citrus take Hannah, her allies and her adversaries to dangerous cypress swamps, islands that like much of Florida are now denuded of the native animal population by the intrusions of ravenous giant pythons and other exotic predators. Hey, if youre going to find the original trees, youre going to have to risk death by python. True to form in the Randy Wayne White world, the predator most to be feared is the homo sapien. From her cabin cruiser, Hannah sees some disturbance at her moms cracker house. Turns out stroke survivor Loretta has been keeping up her affair with the former lieutenant governor of Florida, a wealthy old philanderer named Harney Chatham. Chatham seems to have died in the love making, and now it seems wise to move the body in order to disguise the place of death. This frantic exercise in saving already wounded reputations soon puts Hannah in the company of Reggie (the deceaseds loyal driver) and other Chatham employees. Among them is Kermit Bigalow, the manager of the Chatham citrus groves, a sizeable enterprise threatened by plant disease. Bigalow, in a failing marriage and with a young daughter, is quickly enamored with Hannah and doesnt hide his attraction. Hannah, off-guard, is first responsive to his advances, but then cools things off and sets limits. She and Bigalow share the interest in saving the threatened orange groves; Bigalow is particularly interested in the financial benefit of controlling breakthroughs in the cure. However, as Chathams widow, Lonnie, so makes clear, she would own those discoveries made by him while in her employ. Lonnie, a former cheerleader, long tolerated her husbands indiscretions (including his affair with Loretta). Now that hes passed away, she is busy protecting her turf. Shes locked Kermit out of his job, and shes worried about land Harney willed to Hannah. Moreover, there is evidence to keep hidden that threatens her own rights to inheritance. Loretta and Lonnie are just two in an abundance of colorful characters here. There is also a psycho or two chasing after Hannah in pursuit of the magic orange tree stock. One of these is a rapist with his eyes on Hannah, who has enraged him by standing up to his taunts. Clients of Hannahs fishing guide business are among the contributors to the slow accretion of fascinating information regarding the science of oranges and the wealth that information might bring. Seduced culminates with a beautifully crafted, lavishly extended action scene in the cypress swamp where Hannah, her would-be friends and likely enemies, and a python or two all interact in terrifying ways. The suspense thermometer is about to explode. Hannahs survival skills and courage are tested to the heart-pounding limit. Aside from the three previous Hannah Smith novels and 23 Doc Ford books (most recently Deep Blue), bestselling author Mr. White has had four collections of his columns for Outside magazine and elsewhere published. A one-hour documentary film, The Gift of the Game, about his trip to Cuba to find the remnants of the Little League teams founded by Ernest Hemingway in the days before Castro won the Best of the Fest award from the 2002 Woods Hole Film Festival, then was bought by PBS and broadcast station-by-station in the spring and summer of 2003. Mr. White lives on Sanibel Island, where he was a light-tackle fishing guide for many years, and spends much of his free time windsurfing, playing baseball and hanging out at Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grille.

Full of dark humor and poetic prose, the tender-hearted portrait reminds us that love, early or late, always arrives on time. TNP veteran Denise Villarreal portrays Rosemary Muldoon, and Greg Sofranko makes his debut with the company as Anthony. Bonnie Knapp is Aoife Muldoon, the silly and widowed mother of Rosemary.

Hilton Naples And most anyone can sing or hum the first line of Dont Cry for Me Argentina. The musicals been parodied by everyone from Saturday Night Live to SCTV to The Simpsons. But Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice groupies can get their fix of the real thing at the Broadway Palm. Before the run ends Nov. 19, Eva Peron will belt that famous song dozens more times. This is a dream role for me. Ive always wanted to play it, says April Monte, who portrays the lead. She was so thrilled to be cast that when she received the email with the offer, I remember standing up and doing a happy dance. It is, after all, a once-in-a-lifetime role, says Broadway Palm Artistic Producer/Casting Director Brian Enzman, who directs the show. The story, he says, is just fascinating: this woman who came from nothing to become the most powerful woman in the world by the time she was 26. This was in the 1940s. She was the first lady of Argentina, and she wanted to be vice president to her husband (Juan Peron.) She rose to power and then she died when she was 33. And yes, he admits, she did sleep her way to the top. In fact, the number Goodnight and Thank You features a revolving door and highlights the various lovers she used to claw her way out of poverty: the tango singer who takes her to Buenos Aires, a rich man and a broadcaster who gives her a radio contract. Then she was a model, a B movie actress. But her public speaking is pretty much what gave her her rise to fame, Mr. Enzman says. Evita follows her from age 15 to her untimely death due to cervical cancer. In fact, the story begins and ends with her funeral. Its not the tap-happy show, says Mr. Enzman. But you get past that and into the story of whats going on. The real Eva Peron was embalmed immediately, he says. They wanted to preserve her. The poor people thought she was almost a saint. People were lining up for weeks to see her. But then the government was overthrown, the military took over and her body disappeared for 17 years. It wound up being buried in a small cemetery in Milan. Because of the shipment, she lost a finger, her nose was smashed. Everything was like porcelain. Its a role actresses covet. Ms. Monte describes her character as daring, audacious, self-aware and driven. Thats the way I think of her, she says. She rose above her lot. People saw her as conniving and a user, but she survived in a place that was not conducive. The role, she adds, is both emotionally and vocally challenging. She goes from low, low from Cs and Bs below the staff to all of a sudden belting Fs and Gs at the top of the staff. Anyone who has ever sung the role knows its one of Mr. Webbers most difficult scores, Mr. Enzman says, adding, The songs switch tempos constantly. Theyre very unique. But Ms. Montes has the pipes to do it, he says. Its a difficult role; she has to belt, to sing legit, all of the above. Shes rarely off-stage, and if she is, shes putting on another costume.More like opera The musical is more like an opera, with very little dialogue. Mr. Enzman recalls seeing it when it first came to Broadway, with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin in lead roles. (It opened in Londons West End in 1978 and on Broadway in 1979, and was the first British musical to receive the Tony Award for Best Musical.) Mr. Enzman saw it in the early 1980s. I knew nothing about Eva Peron, he says, but immediately after the matinee he spent the afternoon in search of books about her. He bought biographies and Evitas autobiography. He also purchased the cast album and read the liner notes. And the next day, he went back and saw the show again. I understood so much more what was going on, he says. It just affected me. The staging was inventive for that time. Its fascinating, her arc through the whole story. Half the country hated her, while hundreds of thousands were in mourning (when she died.) They were wrapped around the block for weeks, to see her. He also saw the revival of Evita a couple of years ago. They had changed a lot of the original look and staging, he says. Che, who works as a one-man Greek chorus, is in almost every scene with her, he says. He is the thoughts of the people, and comments on everything she says, he explains. The revival also includes a new song, You Must Love Me (which was in the 1996 movie of the musical starring Madonna). Though Ms. Monte did see the movie version when it was released, she has not seen a stage production. I didnt want to copy anyone elses choices, she says. This show is big, says Mr. Enzman. Its big big, he adds, using the same word as an adjective and a noun. The staging is big, and there are 22 in the cast, which is a lot. Its great Its just a fascinating vehicle for a musical. In these uncertain political times, he says, people can come here and see all the politics they want in Evita.

Dorothy Parkers ashes resided in her lawyers drawer for years, and those of Hunter S. Thompson were shot out of a cannon. If the weird adventures of corpses intrigue you, this would be a perfect book to flip while mulling your own final arrangements. Heavenly Bodies: Cult Treasures and Spectacular Saints from the CatacombsBy Paul Koudounaris $29.99 at www.amazon.comMankinds odd aesthetic impulses truly have no bounds, so why not revel in some richly attired corpses? Photographer and author Paul Koudounaris was granted unprecedented access to catacomb saints, bodies believed to be early Christian martyrs found in the underground tombs of 16th century Rome. Once the skeletons were reassembled, they were then decked out in jewels, silks, lace and armor to be displayed as relics in Catholic churches in post-Reformation Germany. The stunning photographs will justify this books place on your coffee table and certainly elicit shrieks from guests with more delicate sensibilities. The Victorian Book of the Dead By Chris WoodyardIllustrated by Jessica Weisel $19.99 at www.amazon.comThe Victorians were an odd bunch, werent they? Armed with just enough scientific knowledge to scare themselves, they created so many odd ideas and practices regarding sex and death that they seem to be a walking mass of neuroses. Chris Woodywards book uncovers all manner of funeral fads, fears and disasters while including the spookiest trend of all: post-mortem photos. Why would these people want to remember their loved ones as sunken-eyed corpses? And what about their modern-day progeny who unwittingly uncovered creepy photos of their deceased ancestors? Jam-packed with anecdotes, ghost stories, bizarre deaths and off-the-wall fears based in reality, The Victorian Book of the Dead is certainly spooky enough for Halloween entertainment and realistic enough to require a trigger warning for unsuspecting readers. The Gashlycrumb TiniesBy Edward Gorey $10 at www.amazon.comSometimes its worth a small effort to toughen up your kids. If you find that you have older kids who are too soft to manage The Ghostbusters, perhaps a spooky book will help them through it. An art classic, illustrator Edward Goreys book takes readers on a macabre journey through the alphabet with creative ways for small children to die. Told in the familiar abecedarian couplets whose rhythm we all learned in grammar school, its the creepy drawings that keep the pages turning. We can easily imagine this book on Wednesday Addams bookshelf. Walter Potters Curious World of TaxidermyBy Pat Morris $19.95 at www.amazon.comIt takes a really special person to look at a dead animal and want to stuff it, and a really rare breed to stuff it and create miniature tableaux detailed enough for display in a museum. Walter Potters Curious World of Taxidermy celebrates the works of Victorian taxidermist Walter Potter and includes photos of his adorable kitten tea parties, mice escaping a mousetrap and many more weirdly cute scenes. Displayed in several forms throughout the years in a variety of museums, this book is where taxidermy enthusiasts can see the collection intact (it was dispersed in 2010). Even though its filled with images of dead animals, this tome is cute. BOOKSFrom page 1

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYMud-slinging and political rivalry center stage at Lab TheaterWhen it comes to politics, sometimes it feels as though the more things change, the more things stay the same. The Best Man, Gore Vidals 1960 play about back-room dealings and shenanigans at a presidential convention, echoes our current electoral battle, in this ambitious production at Laboratory Theater of Florida. Two candidates vie for a former presidents blessing. Theres former Secretary of State William Russell (John Repa), an Episcopalian and secret atheist who might be too intellectual for the masses. And theres Joe Cantwell (Paul Graffy), a charismatic, God-fearing man who checks the polls before deciding on his personal opinions. (A third mans in the running, but we never get to meet him; hes just siphoning off delegates votes the other two candidates wish they had.) The play, of course, doesnt reflect todays political situation point-bypoint, though some lines that wouldnt have been funny back in the s made the audience chuckle, including: People dont give a damn about Secretary of State, and You should have your own TV show. Then theres the accusation of expediency: You are worse than a liar. You have no sense of right and wrong. Only what will work. And what would a political battle be without sexism? The former president comments: Worse damn thing ever happened to this country, giving women the vote. Trouble, trouble, trouble. They got no more sense than a bunch of geese. Give em a big smile and a pinch on the anatomy, and you got their vote. Sexism and entitlement and sexual harassment all wrapped up in one statement. May the best man win, the candidates say, each believing he is the best man for the job. (Though that gender-specific sentiment would have to be changed, because nowadays, the best man for the job can be a woman.) Both candidates harbor secrets in their pasts, and it isnt long before the mudslinging begins. When we first meet Mr. Russell, hes being questioned by reporters. He actually quotes Bertrand Russell (no relation) to them, and he also claims that life and politics is not a popularity contest. This kind of talk drives his aide, Dick Jensen (Scott Carpenter), crazy. The candidates wife, Alice Russell (a subdued Joanne Haley) is with them in their hotel suite. You come to understand that although she is there to support her husband, their marriage is a sham. Ms. Haley makes the most of the role, presenting her character is a fully developed person. Mr. Russell seems somewhat milquetoast for a candidate; I had trouble getting a feel for who his character really is, other than someone whos very principled. When I saw the show a week after opening, Mr. Repa sometimes seemed to struggle with his words. I also wondered at times if he was attempting to do a Boston accent. This is a very wordy play, almost like an Aaron Sorkin episode of The West Wing with its abundance of dialogue. I wish director Rick Sebastian had made the play as lively and electrifying as that hit TV series. The tension and drama take almost too long to build. The pacing isnt there, and the production feels as if it hasnt quite jelled or settled yet. The play comes alive when President Hockstader appears (Michael Hennessey, looking like Richard Nixon and sounding like LBJ.) He roars like a lion on stage, immediately taking charge of and injecting some much-needed vitality into the production. Mr. Hennessey is a pro, and its fun watching him as he toys with the two candidates, withholding his endorsement. Hes also hiding some secrets of his own. We finally get to meet the Cantwells in scene two, and its a marked contrast to the Russells. Mr. Graffy plays Joe Cantwell as sleazy and unprincipled, with a thin layer of charm on the surface. Hell do whatever it takes to win. He is in every way the antithesis of his opponent. Its a great performance.His wife, Mabel (Gerrie Benzing) is a little slip of a thing. Southern charm through and through, shes like cotton candy: sweet, but totally void of substance.This 13-person cast has some great highlights in it: Bill Allenfort as Sen. Carlin, a crotchety politician from the prairies; Mike Dinko as a nervous informer from a candidates past; and Nancy Antonio as the overbearing national committee woman Sue-Ellen Gamadge. It is only by the force of Ms. Antonios acting that she does not become lost in her first scene, wearing a pink dress, seated on a pink sofa in a room with darker pink walls. Costume designer Carly Scheibneir has some hits and misses in this production. Ms. Antonios hats are something to behold, as are Ms. Benzings frocks, but Ms. Haleys outfits make her look more like an usherette than a welltailored presidential candidates wife, unfortunately. Set designer Michael Eyth is severely challenged by the small stage at the Lab Theater. The script calls for bedrooms, but were only given the main room of the hotel suites. The theater itself has red-white-andblue bunting above the windows, which is a nice touch. But someone should have seriously rethought the decision to shine bright lights into the eyes of the audience during scene changes. Its a very hostile thing to do to theatergoers. The Best Man gives us a lot: sexism, political maneuvering and mudslinging, accusations of mental instability and homosexuality, estranged spouses, rumors of infidelity, aides who cant keep their candidates from saying potentially harmful things. Back in 1960, when this play was originally produced on Broadway, it must have seemed like explosive stuff. But today, with the current presidential election? Its just business as usual. Mr. Vidals play can be seen as a cautionary tale. Whether well learn from it remains to be seen. You have no sense of responsibility toward anybody or anything, and that is a tragedy in a man and a disaster in a president! Mr. Russell says to Mr. Cantwell.

PLUS TAX $ 25 FILM CAPSULESAmerican Honey (Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf, Riley Keough) At 18 years old, Star (Ms. Lane) leaves her dysfunctional family to join a travelling magazine sales team. Its not quite a testament to American youth, and it doesnt have the arc of a typical coming-of-age tale. Did I enjoy watching it? At times. Will I ever watch it again? No. Do I think other people will like it? Probably not. Is it a good movie? No. Rated R.The Birth Of A Nation (Nate Parker, Aja Naomi King, Armie Hammer) A literate slave (Mr. Parker) becomes a preacher and leads an uprising in 1831 Virginia. Its well told, but killing in the name of religion might rub some viewers the wrong way. Based on a true story. Rated R.The Girl On The Train (Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Rebecca Ferguson) Alcoholic stalker Rachel (Ms. Blunt) is knocked out, battered and bruised at the same time and in the same area that a local woman (Ms. Bennett) goes missing. The suspense is flat, largely because Rachel is such a head case that we cant believe anything she thinks or says. Based on the Paula Hawkins novel. Rated R.Deepwater Horizon (Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell) Negligence and avarice lead to the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oilrig off the coast of Louisiana in 2010. Based on the true story of the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. The visual effects are fine, but the story strains for emotion and audience investment. Rated PG-13.Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children (Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson, Asa Butterf ield) Teenager Jake (Mr. Butterfield) ventures off to join Miss Peregrine (Ms. Green) and other children with peculiar abilities, only to find a madman (Mr. Jackson) trying to harness those abilities for himself. It has the visual flair you expect from director Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland), but too many lulls in the story make it a sluggish watch. Rated PG-13.Storks (Voices of Andy Samberg, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell) A stork (Mr. Samberg) and a girl (Katie Crown) encounter a wolf pack and other obstacles as they struggle to deliver a baby. The 3D animation is crisp, its funny, and kids will get a kick out of it, but best of all theres plenty to relate to for parents. Rated PG.Bridget Joness Baby (Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey) Conclusion to the Bridget Jones trilogy follows single Bridget (Ms. Zellweger) as she tries to figure out which guy (Mr. Firth or Mr. Dempsey) is the father of her unborn baby. It a funny and fitting end to the only romantic comedy trilogy in recent memory. Rated R.

LATEST FILMSThe AccountantIs it worth $10? YesYou dont see many characters like Ben Afflecks Christian Wolff in The Accountant. Hes autistic. Socially awkward. Brilliant with numbers. A merciless killer. Trained in martial arts. Has a moral code thats different from most. Theres nothing normal or conventional about him, and thats what makes him and the movie so fun to watch. Ostensibly, Wolff is a mild-mannered, glasses-and-pocket-protector-wearing nerd, working as a lowly strip-mall accountant 20 miles outside of Chicago. But dig deeper as Treasury Department Director Ray King (J.K. Simmons, Whiplash) blackmails underling Marybeth Medina (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) into doing and theres much more: Money laundering. Cooking the books for criminals all over the world. Secret identities. A private arsenal of weapons. Like Clark Kent, Wolff is all business in the office, Superman in the streets. While Marybeth tries to find Wolff, he gets a new assignment to help a robotics company thats about to go public identify a hole in its accounting books. Of all the things we see Wolff do, this is where he seems most comfortable. Its a room full of journals, and as he whispers the numbers to himself, scribbles on the board and does impossible math in his head, its clear hes doing it in a way that only makes sense to him. The montage here, coupled with the musical score by Mark Isham, successfully makes forensic accounting not only interesting, but also fascinating. Think about what an accomplishment that is. Lamar Blackburn (John Lithgow), his sister Rita (Jean Smart) and his best friend Ed (Andy Umberger) run the robotics company. It was their accountant Dana Cummings (Anna Kendrick, Pitch Perfect) who found the aforementioned discrepancy. When unexpected closure comes to the situation, chaos ensues and leads to the only decision Wolff makes that is incongruous with his personality. These gaps in logic risk possible audience disengagement from the story, particularly because it had been so sound to this point. Thankfully, theres a nice recovery and the plot never ventures too far in the wrong direction. As you can tell, theres plenty going on here. Although I think its a flaw to have supporting characters played by well-known actors including Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) and Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent) disappear for extended periods of time, the focus appropriately remains on Wolff. This is smart. Director Gavin OConnor (Warrior) and screenwriter Bill Dubuque (The Judge) know Wolff is unique and seek to explore him in as many ways as possible, which includes flashbacks to his difficult upbringing. Its easy to knock Mr. Afflecks limited acting skills, but lately hes smartly chosen roles he can handle well (Argo), and hes done the same here. He did ample research on autism and spent time with people who have the disorder, and it shows in his performance. Its a snide, unfair and possibly offensive remark to say the blank expression on Wolffs face and monotone voice are part of yet another bland performance from Mr. Affleck; lets give him credit for doing the research, handling the physical elements well and playing a thoroughly convincing and intriguing character effectively. Even though it has some excess at 128 minutes long, The Accountant is a solid drama that has gritty action, pleasant surprises and a satisfying conclusion. Youll find other movies that are sort of like it, but you wont find another character quite like Christian Wolff. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Anna Kendricks character says her father is an accountant; in real life, Ms. Kendricks mother is an accountant.
C16 WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELHalloweeniana is now one of the major holiday collecting categories, second only to Christmas. Jack-olanterns, figural candy containers of papier-mache and crepe paper black cats and skeletons are the oldest. Scarecrows, witches, bats, spiders, spiderwebs, trick-or-treat bags and zombies are more recent and easier to find. An old orange paper dress with black cats and political symbols from a 1980s presidential election year is one of the more unusual collectibles. Another is a 15-year-old dangling rhinestone skeleton pin to wear to parties. Look for bargain Halloween decorations at house sales and flea markets and vintage rarities at auctions and shops. And save some of this years unusual items, as they might become collectibles in years to come. Q: I have my grandfathers black hat. The name in the hat is Sheldon & Co., London. It was in a hatbox that says Mallory Hats, Fifth Ave., New York, N.Y. I think he had the hat when he was a member of the Shriners. Can you give me any information? A: Both Sheldon & Co. and Mallory were hat makers listed in the 1908 American Hatter. G.W. Sheldon & Co. was a maker of felt in 1823. It was the first hat maker in the U.S. and was one of the largest by the early 1900s. The name became E.A. Mallory & Sons after his son joined the firm. It became a division of the John B. Stetson Hat Co. in 1946. Production of Mallory hats ceased by 1965. Maybe Mallory sold hats by other makers, or maybe your grandfathers hat was put in the wrong box. Vintage top hats in great shape sell for about $100. Twentieth-century hatboxes with good names or graphics sell for $50-$75 retail. Q: I have a vintage toilet tissue roll, Waldorf brand, in its original wrapping paper, in excellent condition. It was put in storage along with the whole household in 1943 when the family moved out of state. I purchased the estate many years ago. I gave one to our local historical society to be displayed in the museum. Does it have much value? A: Toilet tissue was first made in China for the Emperors use in the 1391. It was first made in the United States in 1857 and sold in packs of single sheets. Scott Paper Co. made the first toilet paper rolls in 1890. Waldorf toilet tissue was made in 1902 for the Waldorf Hotel. It was the worlds best-selling brand in the early 1900s. Scott continued to produce Waldorf toilet paper for several years. We found it pictured in a 1930s ad. Scott Paper Co. was bought by KimKOVELS: ANTIQUESOnly Christmas items surpass Halloweeniana in collectors circles
berly-Clark in 1995. The value of a vintage roll of Waldorf toilet tissue is about $35-$40. Q: I have been collecting bookmarks since I was in high school. I have some from the Australian Olympics, picture bookmarks of woven ribbon from the 1890s and 50 or more that are wood, plastic, metal, knit, silver, ivory, celluloid, magnetized, gripping, clip-on, advertising, etc. With e-books on the rise, I am afraid bookmark collecting will disappear. What do you think? A: Bookmarks are flat, lightweight, easy to pack and ship and inexpensive. They are also little pieces of history and handcraft. Although there is little written about them, collectors like them. Many from the 1800s are still available, and the size and price make them easy to sell online. Many groups interested in bookmarks are online and so are listings for bookmark sales. There are plenty to be found to add to your collection, and they can be framed in groups to make interesting pictures on a wall. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

For example, take this deal where South bid and made six spades.This overly ambitious undertaking was entirely Souths fault. His jump-shift to two spades on only 13 points in high cards, while marginally acceptable, suggested a possible slam.But having already stretched his initial response by several points, South should not have gone to six unilaterally, which is what he essentially did later. He could have bid four spades over three to indicate minimum values for the jumpshift, or four diamonds over three spades to see whether North was interested in going beyond game. West led a diamond, and declarer saw that he had two apparently inescapable heart losers. But he also saw he might make the slam if he got phenomenally lucky. So after winning the diamond in dummy and drawing two rounds of trumps, South cashed the club ace and three more diamonds, discarding the jack of clubs from dummy. Then he led the five of hearts. West went up with the queen, and it was all over but the shouting. East had to win with the king and return a diamond or a club, either of which allowed South to discard his remaining heart as he ruffed in dummy. West should have realized that declarer could not have the K-x of hearts and play the hand the way he did. Had South held the K-x, he surely would have led a heart from dummy toward his hand at some point. West should therefore have played the ace of hearts rather than the queen on the assumption that East had the singleton king.

Jennifer D., via emailA: I too have heard these rumors, and talk at the BAFTA awards a short while back is only strengthening them. Michael Fox, who played Andy the valet, intimated that Maggie Smith (our favorite Dowager Countess) might be on board for a reunion big-screen feature film, which would pretty much guarantee a green light for the project. Downton creator and writer Julian Fellowes told Good Morning Britain: I would love to make (a Downton movie). As far as I am concerned, Im completely up for it. Most of the cast are up for it. This past summer, Julian told Indiewire: I hope there will be a film. There is an audience for a film. Id structure a narrative with lots of things happening, but we would need a kind of unity to make a feature, which is a challenge for me. It would be a bigger canvas: A riot could be a real riot, the ball a real ball. I would like that; I think it would be fun. Michelle Dockery, who played Lady Mary, teased in Vanity Fair: I think there is potential for a (Downton Abbey) film. That is something I would wholeheartedly consider, so we will see. It may not be over yet. Q: Thank you for all the Outlander news that you provide during the break between seasons. Do you have more news to sate my appetite during this Droughtlander? Dina J., New Haven, Conn.A: I do. I forgot to include this news a few weeks ago when I gave my Outlander update: The lovable Fergus (who was played by cutie-pie Romann Berrux in season two) will be in his early 20s for the third season of the hit romance/time travel/fantasy drama, and he will be played by Cesar Domboy. We also have casting news about Lord John Grey, who plays an integral part in the remaining books of the series. Australian actor David Berry will play the former British soldier-turned-Ardsmuir Prison governor who strikes up a dubious friendship with the incarcerated Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan). Also, Im sure you know that Outlander has been renewed for a third and fourth season. But what you might not know is that Starzs CEO Chris Albrecht told a group of reporters recently that the popular series will be around for a long time.

Both the smoky baba ghannoush dip and the spinach pie were great starters. Platters of shawarma chicken and falafel came piled high. The chicken had a great smoky flavor and spicy mayo for dipping, while the crisp falafel were served with creamy tahini and garlic potatoes. The baklava had just enough honey not so much that it drowned out the nuts and pastry. On Friday and Saturday nights, a belly dancer provides entertainment. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2016 Petars Restaurant, 3300 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 4941343 Petars seats only 32 indoors and a handful outside and serves just a halfdozen each of appetizers and entrees. But former Ritz-Carlton chef Petar Al Kurdi proves theres a lot to be said for offering a small menu, cooking with the freshest seasonal ingredients and plating each dish with precision and panache. His crab cakes are so free of filler ingredients that it was difficult to tell what was holding the moist jumbo lump meat together. Fresh pasta and skillfully simmered risotto are mainstays, and exquisite Wagyu beef may turn up as a juicy strip steak with parsnip puree or tucked into Bolognese with pasta. From appetizer to entre, each dish was garnished with snippets of green herbs such as dill and parsley, which added a final flourish of freshness to the plates. Beer and wine. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed: February 2016 Ridgway Bar & Grill, Third Street South and 13th Avenue South, Naples; 262-5500 Chef/owner Tony Ridgway has been offering great food and service in stylish setting for 37 years at a variety of top-notch restaurants. Ridgway Bar & Grill combines some of the best features of all that came before (Truffles, Chefs Garden and Villa Pescatore, among them). The garden from Chefs Garden is still splendid. The wine list is exemplary. And all the baked goods are made in-house, including the breads served as a prelude to the meal. A goat-cheese tart with ratatouille was superb and big enough to share. Mussels arrived in a hot cast-iron skillet and were perfectly done in a flavorful broth. Whether you want chicken potpie, pan-roasted Florida shrimp with a sweet corn grit cake, Scottish salmon filet with braised lentil and leeks, a simple steak or a vegetable plate selected from 13 options, its all available. And dont skip dessert. The Truffles carrot cake is always a good bet. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed November 2014 7th Avenue Social, 849 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 231-4553 A lot of Naples restaurants serve great food, but few that do it with the fun and funky vibe that 7th Avenue Social has achieved. In the spot formerly occupied by Flava, its now owned by Colin Estrem. The menu features innovative cocktails, house-made pickles, conch sliders, smoked fish mac and cheese, fish or barbacoa tacos, pineapple upside down cake and a host of other goodies. Stop in for drinks and relax in the eclectic collection of chairs clustered near the entrance, or dine at a table where a couch (with pillows) provides two of the seats. I loved the pickles, a chile verde pork taco, the mac and cheese and the somewhat sloppy but satisfying Southern fried chicken wings. We shared a nightly special of yellowtail snapper encased in salt that was served tableside with white asparagus, crisp yucca fries and a side of Bernaise sauce. Sunday brunch and late-night menus available, too. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service:1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed May 2015 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This restaurant's name aptly describes its mission: serving as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured locally. Chef/owner Jeff Mitchell is a Culinary Institute of America alum. The menu is creative, the setting unfussy and the staff friendly and accommodating. The menu changes frequently, depending on what products are available. If they are available, I recommend starting with the Pine Island clams in red curry (the sauce sweet and spicy, redolent of basil and studded with scallions is good enough to drink on its own). Pan-seared triggerfish was expertly cooked, enhanced by a mango and avocado salsa. Mustard-roasted, allnatural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, softboiled egg and pecorino sauce was an imaginative way to dress up poultry. From the side dish choices, we liked the blackened potatoes, the sweet potato cake and the roasted beets with shallots and sherry vinegar. Dont skip dessert; everything here is homemade. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2015

CUISINE REVIEWJump in, the piscos fine at Lima Restaurant in Golden GateMy first transformative experience with Peruvian food occurred in Golden Gate in the original and diminutive Incas Kitchen. Incas has grown up and moved on to the big time (the Pavilion in North Naples), but Lima Restaurant and Pisco Bar has stepped up to help fill the void in the space formerly occupied by Antonias at the corner of Collier and Golden Gate boulevards. Run by Dario and Amanda Gonzalez Zuniga, Dario handles the kitchen duties while Amanda takes care of the bar. Lets talk about the bar first. Yes, you can order wine or beer here, but the more interesting choice would be something made with pisco, of which there are many options. Widely consumed in Peru, pisco is a type of brandy, a spirit distilled from wine or fermented fruit juice. At Lima, you can have your pisco infused with any number of interesting flavors, including rosemary, chamomile, verbena, blueberry and apricot. I ordered a pisco sour with passion fruit and it was heavenly, not too sweet, but with plenty of fruit flavor. My dining companion chose a glass of Intipalka, a moderately priced and popular Peruvian wine. He said it was tasty, but I caught him casting covetous glances at my pisco sour throughout the meal. Lima opened in May. The owners have given the space a cozy, Peruvian feel with big wooden tables and chairs, a substantial grandfather clock, what appear to be old family photos on the walls and an old sewing machine on one wall. Except for the size of the room, it has the feel of being in someones dining room. A basket of fresh bread arrived that was made in house. The chef likes to experiment with different breads and butters, our very pleasant server told us. On this evening varieties included French white, sweet potato and a green one I believe she said contained black beans. The butters were a pat of regular, one of toasted nut and one with red wine. All were tasty and a nice start to the meal, if different from the cancha, or roasted corn kernels traditionally served with pepper sauce at many Peruvian establishments. We started with what else? ceviche. The classic version ($10) can be enhanced in a number of ways. The fish normally used is swai, our server told us when we asked. That is another name for basa (also known as pangasius), an Asian fish I dont eat under any circumstances and I suggest you avoid, too, because it is generally farmed in extremely unhealthy conditions. The result is an inexpensive fish (which is why many restaurants use it), but one that often contains undesirable ingredients such as hormones, metal contaminants, PCBs, DDT and industrial effluvients. Hungry? We gladly paid the $4 upcharge for corvina, added mixed seafood ($4) and en salsa de rocoto (rocoto pepper sauce) as well for another dollar. That made the dish cost $19, but ceviche is typically more expensive than many appetizers owing to the ingredients. We were rewarded with a plate that contained a good amount of fish chunks, calamari, shrimp, yams, roasted corn kernels and plain cooked ones as well. The sauce was creamy and had a moderate bite to it, which is how wed ordered it. From the appetizers, the papas sancochadas and salsas ($8), simply known in English as steamed potatoes and sauces, consisted of three mounts of sliced, steamed potatoes topped with your choice of three sauces. We sampled one of each: yellow pepper chili sauce (a la huancaina), rocoto pepper chili sauce (en salsa de rocoto) and black peppermint sauce (en salsa de ocopa). While I cant say I tasted peppermint in the last one, that sauce was my favorite, possessing a more assertive flavor than the two pepper sauces, which were surprisingly mild. From land and sea, our entrees included the seafood rice ($18, arroz con mariscos) and cilantro chicken with rice ($17, arroz con pollo). Both dishes arrived in large attractive bowls with huge mounds of rice dominating the landscape. The chicken had a brown sauce on it that was disappointingly bland, and try though I might, I could discern no cilantro in it. The raw red onion served on the side helped add some crunch and flavor to the dish. While the seafood had more seasoning, it also could have been zestier. It contained just three clams, three large shrimp plus several smaller ones and a lot of calamari. Unfortunately, the rice overwhelmed the seafood. Dinner finished on a good note, however. A meregerado ($6) consisted of two layers of thick merengue stuffed with dolce de leche and drunken blueberries and topped with chantilly cream. It was crunchy, sweet and creamy, a delicious ending to the meal and a dish that speaks to the chefs passion for baking. We heard the group at the table next to ours extolling the virtues of this dessert as well. The servers ours and a second one we saw working at other tables who could well have been the co-owner were charming and did a great job of making each customer feel well taken care of.Lima Restaurant and Pisco Bar is clearly a place whose owners care deeply about providing an excellent experience for their guests. The baked goods and beverages make that passion obviously. Some finetuning of the savory portion of the menu will make this another Peruvian favorite. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com Lima Restaurant and Pisco Bar>> Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $6-$13; entrees, $14-$20 >> Beverages: Beer, wine and pisco served. >> Specialties of the house: Peruvian cuisine >> Volume: Low >> Parking: Free lot >> Website: lima-restaurant.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 11681 Collier Blvd., Naples; 280-0167SuperbNoteworthyGoodFairPoor Far Left: Ceviche comes in a variety of forms.

Topping off ceremony marks milestone for first tower at Kalea BayClubhouse also under constructionKalea Bay, a gated, resort-lifestyle community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, recently celebrated the topping off of its first residential high-rise tower. The communitys construction professionals, working simultaneously on both the tower and the clubhouse, were in attendance, as were officials from Manhattan, the general contractor and host of the event. Since June of 2015, Ive been afforded a front-row seat of the construction progress from my office, said Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. This milestone is not only exciting for us, but also for those people whove already purchased at Kalea Bay, as well as the visitors who have visited the sales center for the first time. According to Wilson, the first residential tower is slated to be completed by fall of next year. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet while residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our kitchens have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for todays hosts and hostesses, said Wilson. The layout of the kitchen can be experienced firsthand through a replica of one in our sales center. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve, stated Wilson. A perfect vantage point for our spectacular sunsets. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Dramatic views are available to every single resident, no matter which floor they live on. The towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. Including our sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. The beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9, said Wilson. Kalea Bays community clubhouse area is slated for completion around the same timeframe as the first tower. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Wilson. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, plus pickleball courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, just north of Wiggins Pass Road at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 7930110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Construction crews were treated to a barbecue lunch which marked the topping off of the first tower at Kalea Bay. The 22-story tower at Kalea Bay has 120 residences. The 88,000-squarefoot clubhouse features three separate pools, a deck bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant and an Internet cafe. Kalea Bay residences have open floor plans with 9-foot high ceilings.

Seaglass residents to enjoy the parks at Bonita BayLong acknowledged as a place where residents and nature connect, Bonita Bays stewardship of the land is legendary. A deep respect for nature and its preservation guided the communitys design. More than half of Bonita Bays acreage was set aside for natural areas and open space, and residential neighborhoods were sited to take advantage of views of nature without impacting it. Land was selectively hand-cleared. Specimen trees, wildlife habitats, and natural wetlands were preserved and invasive exotics were replaced with native species. The result of this thoughtful approach to development is a decidedly different community that embraces the unspoiled natural beauty of Southwest Florida. In addition to reptiles, amphibians, fish, and small mammals, Bonita Bay is home to a pair of nesting bald eagles. The eagles have thrived at Bonita Bay, producing more than 30 fledglings since 1977. For the residents of luxurious residences in the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower now under construction by the award-winning Ronto Group within Bonita Bay, the communitys splendid setting offers the possibility of enjoying an active, healthy lifestyle. A 12-mile network of on-property pathways is available to residents for walking, jogging, and bicycling. Winding through Bonita Bays park-like landscaping, darting in and out of nature preserve areas, and passing lakes and the rolling hills of the communitys three on-site golf courses, the pathways provide a healthy alternative to residents and an easy way to connect with nature and with one another. The trails lead to virtually every corner of Bonita Bay, including to a b utterfly garden, picnic facilities, playgrounds, canoeing, the Bonita Bay Marina, three beautifully designed parks, and in-between the communitys many neighborhoods. The parks provide an opportunity to experience myriad attractions in serene surroundings. Riverwalk Park runs alongside the Imperial River that meanders along the southern edge of Bonita Bay and provides direct access to Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The park incorporates a sustainable approach to dayto-day practices and is a sanctioned National Audubon community. A day marina includes a boat ramp, 40 boat slips, and canoe storage. A state-ofthe-art bocce ball facility was added in 2013 joining the tennis, pickle-ball, and basketball courts already in place to provide a variety of activities. The bocce facility was named recipient of a 2013 Green Star Honor Award from the Professional Grounds Management Society in the Park and Recreation category. The facilitys pavilion provides a comfortable setting for social gatherings and adds a splash of color to the surrounding turf and tropical vegetation. The covered courtside seating shades the players from the sun while they rest between bocce rotations. Riverwalk Park also offers a playground, picnic areas, restrooms, two pet stations with water fountains, and a 12-station Parcourse fitness trail along the river. Spring Creek is one of Southwest Floridas most pristine waterways and runs along the northernmost border of Bonita Bay. The communitys Spring Creek Park encourages exploration of the areas natural treasures. A canoe and kayak storage and launch facility is available both for resident owned boats and for the complimentary community canoes and kayaks that are provided for use by residents. The parks shaded nature trails wind their way through a subtropical forest and an observation deck directly on Spring Creek provides an ideal spot for appreciating the spectacular setting. Other attractions at Spring Creek Park include a bocce ball court and basketball hoop, a picnic area with grills and tables, a childrens playground, a pet station equipped with a water fountain, gazebos, and restroom facilities. Bonita Bays 13-acre Estero Bay Park is being preserved to share its rich historical and archeological significance, including a series of 5,000 year old Native American shell mounds. An 800foot boardwalk winds its way through dense coastal mangroves to reach a pier on Estero Bay. One of Estero Bay Parks most treasured attr actions is the Butterfly Garden that was established by Bonita Bays residents and is planted with native and tropical flowers. The parks nature trails are outfitted with interpretive signs to enhance the experience. The park is a perfect spot to spend a day and includes a screened pavilion with restroom facilities, a playground, and a picnic area with grills and tables.

10 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYNew Sanibel model debuts at Hidden HarborStock Development has opened The Sanibel, a beautifully furnished new model at Hidden Harbor, a waterfront boating community in South Fort Myers. The Sanibel is a four-bedroom/four and one-half bath harbor-front home with 3,080 square feet under air and 4,847 total square feet, including the covered entry, attached three-car garage and spacious outdoor living area. This open floorplan features a great room design that is perfectly designed to take advantage of Hidden Harbors outdoor, waterfront lifestyle. The back of the home features walls of stacked sliding glass doors and French Doors that open to an amazing outdoor living area with spectacular harbor views. It includes a pool, a covered living room, an optional outdoor kitchen with bar seating, a pool bath and a boat and pool storage room. This waterfront model provides homeowners with a boat dock option to take advantage of Hidden Harbors Gulf of Mexico water access. Inside the Sanibel, there is a large island-style kitchen with a dining room that overlooks the outdoor living area through stacked sliding glass doors. It is adjacent to spacious great room, which is bathed in natural light from four stacked sliding glass doors leading directly to the pool area. There is the formal study and the master suite offers his and hers walk-in closets and each of the three guest suites has a full bath and a walk-in closet. The interior of the model was completed by Cherie Clark Interiors. We designed the interior of the Sanibel model to capture the tropical setting that we all embrace here in Southwest Florida, said Sheri Sirmans, Lead Designer for the project. The location lends itself to boating/outdoor enthusiasts who utilize the immediate environment for entertainment and lifestyle. They chose a color scheme of seafoam green, mushroom and pale yellow to keep the interior light and bright. Tropical floral patterns give a feeling of being in a high end resort in the Caribbean, while the accessories have nautical accents and include a painted mural in the powder bath to include a large octopus. The master bath has faux finished walls to appear as water from the Caribbean, said Sirmans. Tile work includes seafoam glass accents and stone pebbles imitating the beach. The overall feel of the model represents a spa atmosphere which comforts and soothes the soul and acts as an escape from our busy lives. At Hidden Harbor three additional furnished models are open and two more are under construction. A total of 12 floorplans are offered, including several new floorplans priced from the $400s. These three and four bedroom homes feature from 2,327 to more than 3,100 square feet of living area. We have three new floorplans priced from just the mid-$400s, providing even more options for homebuyers, said Stock. These plans feature the same beautiful Contemporary Coastal architecture as our original plans and the community clubhouse. Hidden Harbor is one of the last new home communitues south of Tampa Bay with Gulf access and exciting news was announced this summer. The community recently received approval from South Florida Water Management District that removes all boat size restrictions for vessels moored at Hidden Harbors private boat slips. If youve been searching for a luxury boating community with direct gulf access and exceptional amenities, Hidden Harbor now truly has it all, including the opportunity to moor your boat of any length in one of 52 private docks, said Stock.This is a nautical paradise. Residents may boat, kayak and canoe directly from their personal boat dock. The 4,484 square foot community clubhouse has been completed and is situated on a premium waterfront site at the entrance to the harbor. The fitness center is equipped with new stateof-the art equipment, a comfortably furnished lounge area and a club room that is available for social events. This beautiful amenity complex features waterviews on both sides in an amazing tropical setting, said Brian Stock, CEO of Stock Development. Outside is a resort style pool with a fire pit, a barbeque area and a beautifully furnished sundeck. There is also a kayak launch and open green space to enjoy the beautiful Southwest Florida weather.

Mediterra celebrates an impressive decade of dominance as Naples 10-time Community of the YearMediterra continues to reign as Naples most desirable address with its recent crowning as Community of the Year for an unprecedented 10th time. The premier golf and beach club community claimed the coveted recognition at the recent Sand Dollar Awards gala presented by the Collier Building Industry Association. As Community of the Year in the $1 million and over category, the award recognizes Mediterras have-it-all luxury lifestyle of resort-rivaling amenities, award-winning homes and a beautiful setting inspired by nature and the rolling hills of the Italian countryside. There really is no other community like Mediterra. It works its magic the moment you arrive, said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes, which manages all new home sales and marketing for the community. Mediterra offers every possible amenity sought by the luxury homebuyer: 36 holes of championship golf, a Beach Club on the Gulf of Mexico, a variety of dining options, plus activities like tennis and bocce, social clubs and events. Mediterras lifestyle and continued introduction of new amenities has repeatedly been recognized as the best in Southwest Florida and beyond. The Club at Mediterra is internationally lauded as one of the top private clubs in the world by BoardRoom magazine, and Mediterra is ranked among the 10 best communities worldwide by BestRetirementDestinations.com. Mediterra also received a 2016 Grand Aurora Award for Best Community Site Plan in the Southeastern U.S. The communitys two Tom Faziodesigned championship golf courses offer membership limited to just 450 members 225 members per 18 holes to ensure a premier golf experience. London Bay Homes is offering an exclusive opportunity for new homebuyers to purchase a golf membership at Mediterra without any need for time spent on what otherwise is approximately a one-year waiting list. For residents, Mediterras lifestyle is predicated by the perfect home, one that stirs their emotions with attention to the smallest architectural and design details and embodies their personal expression the hallmark of London Bay Homes commitment to Private Label Living. Many find their dream home ready to move in, represented in a fully furnished model home featuring stunning interiors created by Romanza Interior Design. Mediterras single-family estate and villa models foreshadow the communitys signature lifestyle, and many offer the bonus of lawn and pool maintenance included. Four single-family estate and villa model homes are currently open for viewing, including the Isabella Two-Story, a three-time Sand Dollar award winner for excellence in building, interior and pool design the latter two created by Romanza Interior Design and London Bays pool division, Acquatico. Eight additional models are in various stages of construction in several neighborhoods with two expected to open by the end of 2016 and the remainder including three new floor plans completed by spring 2017. Weve really stepped up our model building program the past several years, said Wilson. Weve had to; our models have sold prior to completion or just after for three consecutive years. London Bay sold all five of its model homes introduced during the 2015-2016 season, including the Belita, a single-family villa which also received 2016 product and interior design Sand Dollar awards. Mediterras model homes offer a sensory exploration for visitors, allowing them to walk through, touch, see and experience how a floor plan lives and relates to its surroundings along golf fairways, lakes and nature preserves. Visitors to Mediterra are immediately drawn to the lifestyle whether its playing a round of golf or dining at the Beach Club. Theres a sense of urgency to be a part of this community, which makes buying a move-in ready luxury home option even more desirable, Wilson said. In addition to the Isabella Two-Story, a four-bedroom 4,285-square-foot estate on one of the last homesites in the Serata neighborhood, models open at Mediterra include the maintenance-free Angelica and the recently completed Bettina in Cabreo.
