COMMENTARYThe way it isTheres a new term for journalists and others who misjudged, underestimated or laughed off Donald Trump voters: elitist. Im guilty of the second of those charges underestimation even if Mrs. Clinton did win the popular vote in the United States, as I expected (I did not expect her to lose the electoral college). So Im an elitist, too. Thats the way it is. There are many reasons people inked the ballot football next to Trump-Pence, punting it into the American future, and Im familiar with most. Family members, friends, neighbors, people with whom I work or play many are Trump supporters. I listen to all of them. Whew, wrote one of my cousins, a cattle rancher and ardent Trumper. Now lets give him a chance. Im good with that. My Facebook feed is not just an echo chamber of my own thoughts expressed by friends, as another cousin put it about his own. But I embrace the tag elitist because all of a sudden its a Genetically Modified Organism of a word, a GMO with an altered meaning. Elitists are no longer people who think theyre better than other people. Now, the word is synonymous with critic. If you criticize Mr. Trump, youre an elitist. You dont understand working people, you dont understand farmers, you never recognized that America begins west of the Appalachians, as a conservative Swarthmore College history professor once said. Needless to say, Im critical of anybody who calls Mexican immigrants rapists and grabs women by their felinities, or brags about it, whether he lives east or west of the Appalachians. Im critical of anybody who spends almost all of his life on welfare the beneficiary of daddys money; the beneficiary of the money and support of U.S. taxpayers who have to make up what he doesnt pay for infrastructure, for war, for education, for health care; the beneficiary of special deals working Americans dont get, a man who artfully avoided military service or any other kind of service. So its easy to be an elitist, for me and for more than 50 million others. One of the myths about Mr. Trump is that hes an outsider, somebody who broke through the deal-making insular world of politics-as-usual, a man who took on the system, who represents common men and some women (usually white) who have been shoved to the periphery of the American dream by Washington insiders in both major parties, themselves special-interest elitists. In reality Mr. Trump is the ultimate insider. Hes the ultimate beneficiary of a system that rewards the wealthy and usually white with charity welfare deals that make winning the lottery look like winning a bowl of Brussels sprouts. But people who voted for Mr. Trump, more than 50 million of them, are not necessarily racists at least not personal racists or morons, as somebody suggested I might believe. I do not believe that, even though I shared an observation by H.L. Mencken unearthed by a friend of mine: As democracy is perfected, Mr. Mencken once wrote, the office of president represents more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their hearts desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. That smacks of elitism in both the old and the new senses, just as this comment does from a non-American named Winston Churchill: The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter. The brilliant Mr. Mencken, who worked in his hometown at the Baltimore Sun for 40 years, represented an odd and hard-to-swallow paradox of brilliant and unsentimental insight along with virulent anti-Semitism and racism. His biographer, Charles A. Fecher, pointed out that Mr. Mencken exhibited a curious mingling of total egalitarianism and patronizing superiority toward blacks, whom he described as intellectually inferior to whites (in his private diary), while vehemently fighting to publish books or articles by black authors and criticizing segregation laws that still existed when he died in 1956. That paradox of attitudes reminds me of some people who voted for Trump, a paradox refitted in their cases to the contemporary culture and its issues of immigration, race and economics.For the moment, they have the final word. And I want to share some of that word with you here, part of a message that came to me about 36 hours after Mr. Trump became president-elect from one of the best and brightest of his supporters, Tommy Lee Cook. Mr. Cook is a musician, contractor and blues-club owner in Southwest Florida.Trump is awesome. When the left, right, globals, radicals, all line up against a man thats never been part of their corruption, its refreshing. HRC and the Democrats are the worst thing to ever happen to Black America. LBJs destructive Great Society and War on Poverty have put these poor souls in a place thats equal or worse than the old plantation. Do-gooders doing good whipping out the Government tit for all to suckle. Sad, sick and repugnant. AND, not understanding and looking the tenets of Sharia Law square in the eye and rebuking this caveman evil is an absolute farce of do-gooderism. Study it, know it, understand it; theres no co-existence with these adherents. Its just not possible. America and Freedom are about the individual, not the collective. Its as simple as that, or it once was. Regaining ones self-worth over the grip of the handout mentality will be the solution and salvation of the free spirit once again. If its not too late. I love me, and by loving me, all that my world touches is a better place.Shades of Ayn Rand. Thats the way it is. p y b c t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

It took a long time to get here. The 2016 election cycle left little room to anticipate anything but its conclusion. The nation is exhausted. We smart from self-inflicted wounds. We brutalized our electoral system and the democratic systems supporting it. No one can truly say when or even if our democracy will fully recover. The grievous injuries done are still being tallied. Radical populism rocked the nation to its core. The rest of the world looks on in confusion and dismay. If America were democracys church, it would be time to call for a revival of spirit; for good shepherds to come and lead its flock from the wilderness and into safer pastures; for the demons of hate and violence to be cast out that threaten our unity; and for the moral corruption of false prophets to be revealed. I imagine it like this because democracys church is like no other. The words and deeds of the Founding Fathers are the rock on which the church is built. The Constitution and the nations Bill of Rights stand as witness to its members. It is a living church infused by freedoms spirit and the rule of law. When the churchs glory shines bright, an altar call must surely follow. It invites congregants to stand and pledge allegiance to the United States of America, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Its wisest elders nod in affirmation. They know a fiery end awaits congregants refusing to repent their hateful, wicked ways. They warn: Woe be unto those who abandon their fellow Americans at the gates of a nativist hell. Judgment day will come. A democracy that abandons its historical values and principles endangers its very soul and the temple to which it is entrusted cannot prosper if its leadership abandons faith, hope and love and love is the greatest of these. We bow our heads and say, Amen. Well, I am not expecting this sermon or an altar call to conscience any time soon. But the celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday is a good place to start the soulsearching and healing. This national holiday is a deeply American tradition. We, the people, come together to give thanks for the blessings we commonly share as Americans. Being reminded of this has served us well throughout our history. An altar call for a national day of thanksgiving was first made by George Washington in 1789. And no wonder: Birthing a new nation proved to be a momentous undertaking. One year earlier, the final draft of the Constitution finally emerged from the political rapids. But it wasnt a done deal. The quarrelsome states had to ratify it. There were high-level arm-twisting and artful compromise. Few precedents existed to lubricate the way. Imagine how tumultuous the process. Consider the political acumen involved. This was high church, indeed. But the job got done. Nine states ratified the historic document. That met the threshold required for the new Constitution to become binding among all the states. Once ratified by the remaining four states, the countdown began for the transfer of power from the old to the new form of government. That moment arrived on March 4, 1789. On that day, the Confederation Congress handed over the keys to a new government. The first session of the U.S. Congress followed in New York City. Soon after, in late April, George Washington, former commander of the Continental Army, was elected unanimously by the Electoral College as the first president of the United States. Congress kept on working. It tweaked the founders framework, reaching agreement in late September to ratify 12 constitutional amendments 10 of which comprised the Bill of Rights and sent them to the states for ratification. All 13 of the original colonies approved what Congress proposed. So, 1789 was, by any measure, a very big year. Washington thought so, too, but his proclamation called for just a one-time, national day of thanksgiving. But the idea caught on. The holiday continued to be celebrated in the decades that followed. Family and communities assembled to replicate the mythical halcyon days of the Pilgrims first Thanksgiving in the New World. It was the first harvest of the worlds oldest democracy. In November 1863, during the Civil War, President Abraham proclaimed Thanksgiving Day a federal holiday on the fourth Thursday of every November. The times were not unlike our own violent disruption of civil society, a nation deeply divided, with disunion a genuine threat. Lincolns proclamation, written by his secretary of state, asked Americans to make penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, and to commend to Gods care those experiencing the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged. It implored the Almighty to heal the nations wounds and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with Divine purposes, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union. One can only say, Amen. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. Her professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia.

Email her at email@example.com and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.com.President Obamas stinging rebukeIn the course of about six hours, what was supposed to be a Republican existential crisis turned into a Republican wave. What was supposed to be a victory of the coalition of the ascendant became a dispiriting rout of the coalition that didnt show up. What was supposed to be the crowning political achievement of Barack Obamas presidency set the predicate for the unraveling of his legacy. Since before he was elected president, Obama put down as a marker the transformational example of Ronald Reagan. That entailed moving the political center of gravity of the country in his direction; winning re-election; and cementing his standing by securing a de facto third term for a Democratic successor. As of 7 p.m. EST Tuesday, the Reagan standard looked to be in Obamas grasp. His approval rating stood above 50 percent. He campaigned vigorously, and apparently effectively, in front of adoring crowds. The last round of public polling and the exit polls on Election Day showed Hillary Clinton getting over the top, and her victory seemed likely to precipitate an ugly, self-destructive Republican civil war. By the wee hours of Wednesday, this scenario turned to ashes, and Obama could only survey the wreckage of the Democratic Party and, by extension, his highest ambition. Obama is a once-in-a-generation political athlete who will always be remembered as the nations first African-American president. But a goodly portion of what he has labored for over two terms could now wash out with the political tide. What happened? From the beginning, President Obama pushed the leftmost plausible agenda without regard to political consequences. His signature initiative, Obamacare, was forced through Congress despite its manifest unpopularity and with the crucial assistance of obvious falsehoods. When Obamas initial legislative overreach cost him his congressional majorities, he proceeded with executive overreach, especially on environmental regulation and immigration. Having made no real effort at partybuilding and after a series of disastrous midterms where his campaigning basically saved no one, he had no protege available to try to win his third term. He had to reach back to his vanquished rival, Hillary Clinton, whose inadequacies he had exposed in the 2008 primaries and who was almost comically ill-suited to energize the Obama coalition. Those voters were considered Obamas enduring political contribution an ever-growing bloc of minorities, millennials and the college-educated who would constitute an ideological ratchet, turning the countrys politics steadily to the left. In its first big post-Obama test, the coalition failed. Now many of the presidents substantive achievements are under threat, especially Obamacare, which is in a semi-crisis, and his vast number of unilateral actions. President Trump will soon pick up his own pen and phone. President Obamas party is lurching toward a bloodletting after losing to perhaps the least likely presidential candidate in all of American history. Nothing is permanent in politics, and victories often carry the seeds of future defeats. But elections are always clarifying. We now know that President Obamas larger project has come a cropper. He is no Ronald Reagan, not even close. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. D t t R s c rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly d u a n h t leslieLILLYllilly@floridaweekly.com

Sponsored by Vin DePasquale Owner, The Dock and Riverwalk Restaurants ROOTED IN NAPLESAfter a reprieve last year, its back to the kitchen, with thanks, this Turkey DayGobble, gobble! The holiday season is upon us, but we have to get through Thanksgiving to get to the good stuff. Is there anyone else out there who feels like our national celebration of gratitude is just a hurdle we have to jump to get to Christmas? Just me? Not likely. While I enthusiastically join the chorus of gratitude each year, I can think of lots of ways Id rather give thanks than slaving away over a stove for a few days only to be left with a bombed-out kitchen that takes two or three passes to set right. For instance, Im far more grateful for Sushi-Thai takeout than a 20-pound, $30 carcass of an aggressively territorial piece of poultry. While turkeys are waging war against the peaceful inhabitants in New England, perhaps I should be grateful that Americans are winning a war of attrition against the birds. My hope for the future is that American citizens will have the gratification of seeing their doorstep terrorists on the holiday table this year and for many years to come. If ever there were a bird worthy of the humiliation of defeat, its a tom turkey. Thats a Thanksgiving someone, somewhere could be grateful for. Last year, thankfully (!), my mother and I enjoyed a reprieve from the holiday preparations by phoning it in for Thanksgiving at a local resort. The people in our family who dont cook were disappointed, however. They wouldnt get their stuffing or their cursed sweet potatoes whose caramelized marshmallow globules reliably alight in the oven during the last push of food to the table. They wouldnt get the leftovers that supply turkey soup, turkey sandwiches and a wishbone for the kids to snap weeks later. Thanksgiving is truly the holiday that doesnt die; it just molders in the fridge until family members protest it can be frozen for later. When you have your turkey dinner in a restaurant, its so much easier to leave Thanksgiving behind and march toward Christmas. Its also easier to relax and reflect on your blessings. Last year, I was grateful we had turkey but that we didnt have to stare down a mountain of heirloom, handwash-only serving ware once our plates were clean. To be fair, the Christmas morning blitz has longer-lasting repercussions on household order. It has already started with Santa lists and ends with a family brunch at our house on Christmas morning. Its far more expensive and time-consuming, yes but it feels better. Perhaps its because you cant replicate the joy kids feel on Christmas morning. Parents get a quick hit of the happiness we wish our kids could experience every day and the work pays off. This Thanksgiving, were back in the saddle. While I kind of dread the preparations, its easy to be grateful this year for a number of things, and at least I have hours of cooking to count them. No one finds it easy to always be mindful of her blessings, but any home cook knows that kitchen meditations enable us to think of why were cooking and for whom. Is the meal preparation an act of love or an act of obligation? Are we hospitable to our loved ones? Are they thankful for the meal? Mine are, and catching a break last year helped me remember it.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthe prospect of setting up shop seems punishing and unlikely. But what if you could subtract a few major headaches like rent and payroll? Or if you could customize a space that is fully available when you want it, but isnt racking up utility bills when you dont? South Florida business owners are buying trucks, vans and buses to provide residents with an array of services that span boutiques to auto repairs and giving customers a thrill at the same time. Its a business you can be very creative with, said Kelly Calistri, owner of mobile boutique Couture To Your Door in Naples. She had a career in medical research but realized that having two young children prevented her from working a regular 9-5 job. She decided it was time for her to pursue her longtime dream of owning a boutique. Originally, having a traditional storefront operation was her goal but after putting four wheels under her vision, she said she couldnt imagine serving her customers any other way. I think this is a really fun way to do it, she said. I think the concept is fun and different and I think people like things they havent seen before. According to the American Mobile Retail Association, about 82 percent of its members spent under $9,000 on their rig and about 91 percent spent under $9,000 to retrofit it to their specifications, less than a years rent on a commercial lease in a high traffic area. Business owners are often able to hit all the same shopping hotspots or at least capture similar customers to break even on their start-up costs within two years. People think, if I try and it doesnt work out, Im out $20,000 instead of $200,000, said organization founder Stacey Jischke-Steffe. Mobile retail services, by following the model set before them by food trucks, rose in popularity during the Great Recession when credit was tight. It no longer seems to be just a trend, Ms. Jischke-Steffe said, and is understood to be a business model that stands alone. Some people might start a mobile business with the intention of eventually moving into a storefront, but they tend to keep the rig operational because it works. Its been incorporated into peoples business models in general, she said. We hear from a lot of people closing their brick and mortars because they want that flexibility to really target their customer and drive directly to them were also seeing people who maybe always wanted to have a store so they open a truck first. They might eventually go into a brick and mortar and keep the truck. Curbside Gourmet, Palm Beach Countys most in-demand and visible food truck, opened in 2010 and with its success, owners Matthew and Amanda Somsy have seen the catering side of their business flourish. Now they are exploring launching trucks in other markets. According to Mr. Somsy, business owners who have a good product can benefit from using a truck as a stepping-stone. Some people think that youre going to make a lot of money opening a food truck and its not going to happen, he said. If you open up for a purpose, if you have a product that you really believe in, its really great to start and get it out there. While Curbside Gourmet still dishes out popular items like its Maine lobster rolls to South Floridas hungry public and participates in food truck circuits, the Somsys served 180 weddings last year and the rig holds a special allure for private events. As far as the catering aspect, the truck itself has helped us for sure. It helps us bring the restaurant to our customers so they can have a house party and we wont have to use their kitchen, Mr. Somsy said. A lot of your higher-end clients hire us to cater their parties because the truck color isnt so invasive. It all seems to boil down to flexibility in the end, whether it is in hours, services or inventory. Scott Keller, who owns Tropical Extremes in Naples and Dallas with his wife, Christine, travels all over South Florida and takes pride in bringing new dollars into Collier County with his laser tag and entertainment services.

Mr. Keller simply wouldnt be in business if the pair operated Tropical Extremes in a facility, he said. His initial research into the business 11 years ago revealed that if he ran it in underair space, the doors would shut in two years. A couple of friends looked at the cost per square foot and an hour-long conversation turned into 30 seconds, Mr. Keller said. They said I didnt have enough to make the first two years. So he retooled his business plan and now caters to private parties in Collier and lots of corporate and college events in Lee and Dade counties. It requires a lot of time on the road, but its what makes his business work, he said. Sometimes, business owners simply like offering their customers the personalized service mobility offers. Once people start offering services aboard a truck, they can offer more luxurious or customizable services, like Keri McDonnell, who owns Unfurgettable Pet Grooming in Naples. Ms. McDonnell started her business in a storefront but packed everything onto wheels in 2011 because she saw the benefit of giving her customers toyour-door service. Her month-to-month expenses are still comparable to her brick-and-mortar operation, but her client base now consists of regular customers who keep her very busy. Its just a salon on wheels with mobile pet grooming, its more specialized and tends to be more expensive than a salon because Im bringing it to customers, she said. Its also less stress and people get that, so theyre willing to spend a little more for their pet. Ms. McDonnell soon discovered that once she and a new customer have established a rapport, she could provide what she calls a latchkey service. The customer will provide her with a key so she can enter the home while he or she is at work, groom the animal in the truck and lock up when the appointment is over. They come home to a freshly groomed pet, she said. Well lock up and text that we left. We provide not only convenience of going to the home clients dont have to even be home. Then there are the traveling businesses that should have been on the road all along. Wayne Martin owns Waynes Mobile Mechanic Service in Fort Myers and saves motorists a lot of money when their cars break down. Basically, when you take a car to a garage, you usually dont have your vehicle and its an inconvenience to you, he said. If your car is on the side of the road and its quick and easy, I can get you up and running instead of having it towed to a shop. It saves people money. Because he doesnt have large equipment like a lift, Mr. Martin has to forgo complicated repairs. He can, however, maintain fleets of service vehicles much more efficiently than a garage can. I do serve a benefit to certain businesses like contractors who cant afford to have their truck down. Theres no inconveniencing the company by not having it. Success, he said, depends on finding the right niche where he hopes that he can grow enough excellent side-of-theroad service that prevents people from having to pay for a tow truck. It can prosper very well on a consumer level, Mr. Martin said. It would be a lot better than a road ranger because we could dispatch a mechanic right to your spot. Freedom of movement also allows Mr. Martin to provide a very handy and rare service: used car inspections. Most people in the market for a new vehicle arent knowledgeable about how much to pay for reasonable wear-and-tear and what makes a car a lemon. For an hourly rate, Mr. Martin can inspect as many cars as customers have lined up in the time theyve contracted him for. You do have the right to inspect, he said. Ill go out and inspect it top to bottom from wiper blades to tire compression and give you an analysis of what the car is and verify the car is worth the money. Mr. Martin echoed the sentiments of other mobile business owners that emancipation from a brick-and-mortar operation allows him more creativity with his services, mostly because he doesnt have the financial pressure to meet overhead costs and be tied to one spot to meet with customers. Mobile businesses do have a few pitfalls, Ms. Jischke-Steffe said, and one is that local ordinances vary widely and prospective owners have to do a lot of research to find out where they can operate and within what parameters. The last thing you want to do is buy everything and find out you cant get a permit, she said. I always recommend people to start at local level and find out rules and regs before they run out to get the truck and trailer. Sometimes those rules can limit the size and type of vehicle even if there are strict regulations, there are often ways around them. Its also good to follow decent business etiquette. Having the ability to rove around town doesnt mean its acceptable to post up in front of the brick-andmortar competitor. People cant just stop in when they want to and thats a major challenge. Im finding places to be available to them during the day and farmers markets are a big help, said Couture To Your Doors Kelly Calistri. I dont go anywhere near other boutiques, so I mostly do private events. As long as I have permission of whoevers driveway Im in, I dont have a problem. Curbside Gourmet deals with changing regulations in municipalities throughout South Florida. Food trucks cant sell food within Palm Beach Countys downtown area, Martin County only allows them to sell food on private property and in Delray Beach, the restaurant groups are so strong you cant even step foot on Atlantic Avenue, Mr. Somsy said. You should definitely do your homework. While its great to see large companies embrace the mobile trend in their marketing, Ms. Jischke-Steffe said it takes a particular type of person to own a mobile business and particular type of customer to enjoy using them. It reminded me of the tiny home movement. You have a certain type of personality that really embraces mobile businesses, she said. Basically, when you take a car to a garage, you usually dont have your vehicle and its an inconvenience to you ... If your car is on the side of the road and its quick and easy, I can get you up and running instead of having it towed to a shop. It saves people money.

Wednesday, November 30 5:30-6:30 p.m.Speaker: Benjamin Storey, M.D.** 6101 Pine Ridge Road Lobby Black Friday is known as the start of the Christmas shopping season, but the unofficial kickoff party for the glories of holiday eating, drinking and socializing comes two days earlier on Thanksgiving Eve, sometimes called Black Wednesday, Blackout Wednesday, or even Drinksgiving. Family and friends are back in town. Nostalgia is nearing its yearly peak. And with few responsibilities for days to come for a lot of people, other than stuffing themselves silly, bars and restaurants across South Florida prepare for a night that ranks somewhere between New Years Eve and any given Saturday. It is typically one of the busier bar nights of the year, said Kevin Offerman, owner of City Tavern in downtown Fort Myers. He staffs up as if it were going to be a weekend night. For a couple reasons, obviously its a holiday the next day, he said. Another reason is a lot of people come back into town, family comes back into town from college or elsewhere and they want something to do the night before they spend all day with their family. Black Wednesday revelers would also be well advised to take an Uber or a cab, as police departments too are gearing up for a busy night with an increased presence. We definitely pay attention and place our resources strategically on that evening, said Lt. Seth Finman, public information officer with the Naples Police Department. That includes more officers on patrol in shopping and business districts including Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. In downtown West Palm Beach, OSheas Irish Pub is preparing to get slammed said general manager Gary Murray in his lilting Irish brogue. Mr. Murray is originally from Limerick, Ireland. Were all Irish here, he said. The night typically is not as busy as New Years Eve or St. Patricks Day, he said. Its like having a bonus Saturday night in the middle of the week, and people take full advantage of it. OSheas will feature $4 shots of Wild Turkey whiskey, Wild Turkey whiskey promo girls and live music with the band Axcents. The kitchen at British Open Pub in Bonita Springs will be turning out plenty of meatloaf, steak and kidney pie, cottage pie and especially fish and chips on Black Wednesday anything but turkey or ham for an influx of hungry families. Youve got a lot of people that have their grandkids and everybody come down for the holiday and they dont want to dirty up their kitchen the day before Thanksgiving, so they go out to eat, said manager Cathy Foster. Thats the feedback I get from them. Black Wednesday is usually the second busiest night of the year after St. Patricks Day at The Celtic Ray Public House, a bar and restaurant in downtown Punta Gorda. With the possible exception of Halloween, said owner Kevin Doyle. He doesnt know why that is exactly, but took an educated guess. My theory is that all the kids from all over come to see their parents here and their parents go to bed at 9 oclock and theyre out partying, he said. Mr. Doyles son, Celtic Ray co-owner Max Doyle, will also be out late that night working. The Celtic Rays mobile food truck will be at Fort Myers Brewing Company serving classics such as fish and chips, Scotch eggs and battered bangers. He plans to serve many college kids whose parents live in the area. Maybe they drove from Gainesville or Tallahassee and want to see some of their hometown friends or have a beer or whatever, he said. Certainly I like to have a beer after a long drive. Just make sure that the drive comes before the beer (or four), not after. Bars, restaurants, police prepare for Black Wednesday BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com One of the reasons Black Wednesday has become a party night is that college students back home for the holiday like to reconnect with hometown friends.

The Mary and Robert Ullen Serenity Garden will be between the existing Ispiri Community Center and the Lyon Center, which is under construction on the Avow campus on Whippoorwill Lane off Pine Ridge Road, just west of the I-75 interchange. When my husband was in hospice care at Avows inpatient center, I saw so many families sitting by the sides of their loved ones for hours on end, Mrs. Ullen said. Through this gift, I wish to create a serene space where families can connect with nature to find solace and relief from their heart-breaking realities. Gardens were a place for Mr. and Mrs. Ullen to escape from their busy schedules, said Melissa Phillips, vice president of the Avow Foundation. Through this generous donation to Avow, Mary is sharing her passion for nature and her compassion for those facing serious illness, caregiving and loss, she added. Avow was founded in 1983 as Collier Countys original, nonprofit hospice. Today, Avows nonprofit companies provide palliative care consultations for people facing chronic or serious illness as well as hospice care and bereavement support services for children and adults. The Ullen Garden is part of planned green space expansion on the Avow campus. Members of the Avow Foundation continue to seek philanthropic support to bring the full plan to fruition.

Norman, Son & Customer Bodo, Owner & Customer Christian, 33 Years Test of skillNew York City officially began licensing professional fire eaters earlier this year, and classes have sprung up to teach the art so that the citys Fire Department Explosives Unit can test for competence (if not judgment) and issue the E29 certificates. In the bad old (license-less) days, a veteran fire eater told The New York Times in October, a bunch of us performed regularly for $50 a throw, largely oblivious of the dangers (though some admit that almost everyone eventually gets badly burned). For authenticity, the Times writer, a fire eater who dubbed herself Lady Aye, completed the licensing process herself (as sexy as applying for a mortgage), but declined to say whether she is awaiting bookings.Bright ideas A major streetlight in the town of Pebmarsh Close, England, went out of service when a truck hit it a year ago, and despite pleas to fix it from townspeople and Essex county councillor Dave Harris no action has been taken. In October, Harris staged a birthday party on the site, formally inviting numerous guests, and furnishing a birthday cake to celebrate the age of the broken streetlight. (The shamed county highway office quickly promised action.) At a World Cup qualifier match in October in Quito, Ecuador, police arrived during the game to question star player Enner Valencia about an unpaid alimony complaint, and he saw them waiting on the sideline. Local media reported that Valencia then faked an on-field injury near the end of the match to necessitate being taken away by ambulance, thus outmaneuvering the police. (He settled the complaint in time for the next match.)Are we safe? The security firm Trend Micro disclosed in October its surprise to find, in the course of a routine investigation, that firms in several crucial sectors (nuclear power, electric utilities, defense contractors, computer chip makers) send critical alert messages via old-style wireless pagers wholly unsecured against hacking. In fact, Trend Micro said the enormously popular WhatsApp message-exchange app has better security than the alert systems of nuclear power plants. (Infrastructure engineers defended the outdated technology as useful where internet access was unavailable.) Life Imitates Art: Security experts hired by the investment firm Muddy Waters (which is being sued for defamation by St. Jude Medical Inc. over claims that St. Judes cardiac implant device can be hacked) disclosed in an October court filing that they agree the devices are anonymously and maliciously hackable. They found that a popular control device (Merlin@Home) could be remotely turned off, or jiggered to carry a dangerous electrical charge from up to 100 feet away. (A similar incident was part of a plot in Season 2 of the Homeland TV series, as the means by which the ailing U.S. vice president was assassinated.Least-competent criminals(1) Ms. Cana Greer, 29, was arrested in Sacramento, Calif., in October when police responded to a call to help her remove handcuffs she had accidentally engaged while fooling around with a friend. Police, routinely checking her ID, discovered an outstanding felony burglary warrant. As per procedure, officers took her to a fire station for removal of the cuffs to make room on her wrists for their own handcuffs. (2) A woman unnamed (because she has not been charged with a crime) almost produced major havoc at the Shuttle Car Wash in Titusville in October when, while cleaning her car, she attempted to vacuum gas out of her trunk, causing the vacuum to explode.Undignified deathMr. Nigel Hobbs, 71, passed away in Dawlish, England, in April, and an October coroners inquest heard that his body was found by a neighbor swaddled in bed linen and wearing numerous homemade dresses and his face covered by stockings pulled tight (but with eye holes). Underneath the coverings, his face was wrapped in polyethylene, including his mouth but not his nose, and cotton or wool was stuffed into his ears and mouth. The coroner assumed the cause of death was accidental asphyxiation. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

A18 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELBMW 330e is everything to everyoneWe all have the one friend who has an outfit for every occasion but is still hesitant before stepping out the door. That indecisive pal will love the new BMW 330e. Just like someone who needs to be ideally dressed for every outing, this plug-in hybrid seems to want to please every crowd. It is a premium marque sedan, an eco-friendly all-electric, a roomy family vehicle and a sports car, all rolled into one package. A description like that would almost mean that we can end the review right here, but the balance this BMW has to walk is worth investigating further. After all, does doing everything well mean it can truly master anything? The design of the BMW 3-Series is quite handsome. Conservative sedan bodylines meet the furrowed brow headlights and hallmark twin kidney grille to create a shape that has become a symbol of success in the junior executive parking lot. There is nothing on the hybrid that alters it. In fact, the only way people can tell its an eco-friendly plugin hybrid is by the electrical outlet panel on the drivers fender and the eDrive badging on the c-pillar. That kind of incognito is good news for the green-minded manager who thinks the Toyota Prius doesnt have the prestige for a reserved parking space. Conversely, it might take a little extra explanation when pulling up to an Earth Day rally. Inside there isnt much to distinguish the eDrive version either. The 330e comes standard with nice features like a power drivers seat, dual zone climate control and a premium HD stereo with infotainment screen and iDrive. Of course, like any true BMW, theres a huge list of technology and luxury options that can add a mortgage onto this sedan. The only giveaway to the electrified power is a few discrete buttons that allow the driver to choose how the car best utilizes its voltage. The engine bay also doesnt look too different from the standard BMW lineup. The 2.0-liter turbocharged gas motor in the 330e is a 180 horsepower unit similar to whats available in the lesser 320i sedan. What is harder to see is the 87 hp electric motor thats sandwiched near the eight-speed transmission. The combination of the two isnt simple addition, so BMW lists the 330e at 248 total horsepower. This is the same as the conventionally powered 330i sedan, but the two vehicle behave quite differently. First, the 330e is a genuine plug-in hybrid. Leave it charged overnight on a standard 110V wall outlet, and in the morning owners can expect the whisper quiet drive for 14 miles or less. The allelectric power can even propel the car up to highway speeds of 75 mph. But for everyone whose commute is more than a few blocks, there is a better use for the battery power. The 330e can work with electricity in tandem with the gas engine. This creates an interesting situation where the torque-happy electric motor will be used to start from a stoplight and then hand off acceleration duties to the turbo motor once it has spooled up to a more ideal rpm. Or at deceleration, the gas power will shut down, let the regenerative braking charge the batteries, and then start off again under stored battery energy. It is an engineering dance that maximizes both power and efficiency. Because the electric and gas power plants work together so often, it feels like BMW has toned down the exhaust note on the 330e. It creates a very quiet car that never loses the handling sharpness that is the bedrock of the 3-Series appeal. This alluring tango comes at a price. The BMW 330e starts at $45,095, which is $5,350 more than a 330i sedan. Even after tax credits, the most efficient drivers are not going to make up the electric efficiency savings of the plug-in hybrid for many years to come. In fact, when factoring in available government rebates, 330e shoppers looking for premium green machines will not be too far away from Teslas all-electric Model S sedan. But the 330e has a place in this world. Its not the ideal electric car or a luxury car bargain. Instead, with an adaptable master of none, BMW has created the premium accessory that fits every occasion. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

A poor crop that first year, 1955, inspired business lea ders to share their produce with Immokalee farmers so both communities could enjoy the holiday. The agricultural center reciprocated by inviting the city folk to the country for a barbecue the next year. Since then, Farm City BBQ has toggled between city and country venues each year. The tradition endures and is supplemented by live music provided this year by Ben Allen Band and an online raffle to benefit a number of local organizations and charities. Its funny because the youve got the communitys biggest leaders there and theyre all in jeans and cowboy boots and theres not really a rank among them, event spokesperson Cyndee Woolley says. Its an atmosphere you havent seen all year. Diners can expect the standard fare of Shulas Steakhouse steaks, baked beans from Russells Clambakes and Immokalee Salad, a mixed of seasoned fresh vegetables from Lipmans Produce. Beverages, including wine and beer, will be complimentary. The event has outgrown the Immokalee packing plants that usually host the country barbecues, so organizers approached Seminole Casino Immokalee to serve as this years venue.

We are proud to support our community and host the 61st annual barbecue. We look forward to a day filled with great food and camaraderie. Jaime Weisinger, whose family has operated Lipman Produce in Immokalee since the 1960s, serves as chair of this years event, which he says offers the Immokalee community a chance to educate Neapolitans about how significant its agricultural operations are. People dont realize that about twothirds of the tomatoes consumed in the U.S. come right out of their backyard in the wintertime, Mr. Weisinger says. His company will donate all the produce for the barbecue about 2,500 pounds of tomatoes, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes for the Immokalee Salad and to fill bags attendees can purchase for $20 to take home. Per usual, elected officials including Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, Collier County School Board member Erick Carter and others will serve lunch to hungry guests. I think a lot of people come out to network, and networking with elected officials is a big part of the event for them, Mr. Weisinger says. Theyre also out there saying thank you for the support. As the barbecue has grown over the years, organizers have incorporated charitable giving into the event to promote the growth of future leaders. A number of organizations benefit from ticket sales, including the Collier County 4-H Foundation, Youth Leadership Collier, the Collier County Junior Deputies League and Key Club International, which has 12 clubs at high schools around the county. Organizers have raised more than $250,000 over the years for youth leadership clubs. COURTESY PHOTOSheriff Kevin Rambosk is a regular on the serving line at Farm City BBQ.

A24 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Poor sleep might increase risk of developing irregular heart rhythms THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATIONDisruptions in sleep may be raising your risks of an irregular heartbeat, known as atrial fibrillation, according to preliminary research presented at the American Heart Associations Scientific Sessions 2016. Obstructive sleep apnea, or sleep interrupted by pauses in breathing, is a known risk for AF, an irregular heartbeat that can lead to strokes, heart failure and other heartrelated complications. But whether theres a relationship between disrupted sleep and AF even when theres no sleep apnea is unclear. Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco examined three sources of data, each using a different approach, to isolate and confirm the effects of poor sleep on AF. Their analyses of these studies showed that: Disrupted sleep, including insomnia, may be independently associated with AF. People who reported frequent night-time awakening had about a 26 percent higher risk of developing AF compared to those who didnt wake up a lot. People diagnosed with insomnia had a 29 percent higher risk of developing AF compared to those without insomnia. Insomnia meant having trouble falling asleep, not getting enough sleep, or having poor sleep. The idea that these three studies gave us consistent results was exciting, said lead study author Matt Christensen, a fourth-year medical student at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Past research has shown a link between poor sleep among people who already had AF. But this study focused on people whose pre-existing sleep disruptions were associated with developing AF later in life. The data sources included the Health eHeart Study, an internet-based crosssectional study of more than 4,600 people; the Cardiovascular Health Study, an 11-year longitudinal study of just over 5,700 people, of which almost 1,600 (28 percent) developed AF; and the California Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, a hospital-based database spanning five years and covering almost 14 million patients. In all three studies, researchers adjusted for the effects of obstructive sleep apnea and AF risk factors that might also be related to sleep. Some of those factors were age, sex, race, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure and smoking. In a separate analysis, the same researchers reviewed a subset of the Cardiovascular Health Study to understand the effect of sleep disruptions during different sleep phases without obstructive sleep apnea on AF risks. The analysis showed that having less rapid-eye movement sleep than other sleep phases during the night is linked to higher chances of developing AF. By examining the actual characteristics of sleep, such as how much REM sleep you get, it points us toward a more plausible mechanism. There could be something particular about how sleep impacts the autonomic nervous system, Mr. Christensen said. The autonomic nervous system plays a major role in controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Another possible explanation for the link between sleep disruptions and AF is that frequent waking puts extra stress on the hearts chambers, he added. Participants in this analysis were also enrolled in the Sleep Heart Health Study. They had a formal sleep study to objectively measure sleep quality. Thats another element that strengthened the studys conclusions, Mr. Christensen said, as it didnt rely on self-reported data. In this analysis, 1,131 people (average age 77) participated in a study with almost 10 years of follow-up. Researchers measured how long participants slept, how well they slept, how long it took to fall asleep and the patterns of sleep (i.e., how much time was spent in REM sleep versus nonREM sleep). Then they analyzed the sleep disruptions effects to control the effects of age, sex, race, smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure and other risk factors. Study authors say the exact link between sleep and how AF develops is still a mystery, but we are getting closer to a clear picture. Ultimately, even without a clear understanding of the responsible mechanisms, we believe these findings suggest that strategies to enhance sleep quality, such as incorporating known techniques to improve sleep hygiene, may help prevent this important arrhythmia, said Dr. Gregory Marcus, senior author of both abstracts and a cardiologist at the University of California, San Francisco. Poor sleep is a known culprit for other heart disease risk factors such as high blood pressure, obesity and stroke. So its important to know how to get a good nights rest. Getting enough physical activity, avoiding too much caffeine and having an evening routine are good starting tips for sound slumber. Talk to your doctor if youre having trouble with poor sleep. The study was funded in part by the Sarnoff Cardiovascular Research Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. HEALTHY LIVINGTake the Maintain, Dont Gain! Holiday Challenge FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHTo help families across the state enjoy a happy and healthy holiday season, the Florida Department of Health is partnering with North Carolina State University to offer the Maintain, Dont Gain! Holiday Challenge for the third year in a row. The free challenge starts this week and runs through Dec. 31, giving participants tips, tricks and ideas to help maintain their weight throughout the holiday season. It can be easy to overindulge during the holiday season, says Stephanie Vick, administrator for Florida Health in Collier County. Maintain, Dont Gain! can help us be more mindful this time of year. Some of the tips include choosing fresh fruit as a festive and sweet substitute for candy, limiting fats, salt and sugary foods and finding fun ways to stay active, such as dancing to your favorite holiday music. Being active for at least 2 hours a week and helping kids and teens be active for at least one hour a day also adds healthy balance to the season. Many Americans gain between one and five pounds each holiday season. Last year, more than 1,600 Floridians participated in the challenge. Sixty-seven percent reported they maintained their weight, 18 percent lost three to five pounds and 98 percent said they will continue to use the strategies learned during the challenge. The 2016 Maintain, Dont Gain! Holiday Challenge includes: Seven weekly newsletters delivered to your inbox. Tips for hosting a healthier Thanksgiving, managing holiday stress and surviving holiday parties. Weekly challenges, winners and prizes. Support through social media. Healthy holiday recipes.

MARTY BECKER, KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON AND MIKKEL BECKERUniversal UclickThe 6-month-old Lab puppy grazed on the Christmas tree, gorging on glass bulbs, shimmery tinsel and more. When his owners brought him to the veterinary hospital, swollen with swallowed ornaments, he resembled a four-legged black tick with a pink tongue. A dose of barium to illuminate the intestinal tract on radiographs and force out the intestinal contents worked quickly, and before long, the dog was pooping out pieces of glass, string and wire hooks. As a big wad of tinsel emerged, it gave him the appearance of a giant New Years Eve party blower. No doubt all of us have memories of a cat scrambling up a Christmas tree, a swooshing dog tail overturning a lit menorah or a canine or feline counter cruiser tucking into the roast beast. As we enter the holiday season, its time to bone up on pet-proofing our homes to prevent pet mischief. After all, no one, least of all our dogs and cats, wants to spend any of the days between Thanksgiving and New Years in the veterinary ER. Weve gathered some cautionary tails er, tales to help you adapt your holiday traditions to the realities of life with pets. A pointer we know made the news when he ate a childs pushpin craft made with marshmallows to form a snowman. The dog ate the entire thing and required emergency surgery to remove the pushpins. This year, the family will be surrounding the Christmas tree with a pet gate to prevent unauthorized ingestion of ornaments or presents. Cats, famed for their ability to leap tall counters in a single bound, and their partners in crime, dogs of all sizes, are notorious for stealing food off plates, tables and counters, sticks of butter left out to soften, chocolate-covered espresso beans and marshmallow Santas (ask us how we know this). And were not the only ones with larcenous animals. Dexter, a Parson Russell terrier, lives with a family who made the mistake of leaving a box of holiday chocolates sitting on their coffee table. They came home to find the contents strewn all over the floor, with much of it eaten. Dexter, apparently a discriminating dog, picked out his favorite varieties from the box. Fortunately the only outcome was a case of diarrhea, but now family members make it a point to put unsafe food items (or anything they dont want him to eat) well out of their dogs reach. In another case, curiosity didnt kill the cat, but it did cause him to get an unusual bath. Amanda Graves recalls the time her husband noticed that their Abyssinian kitten, Peyton, was looking a little greasy. Upon closer examination, he discovered Peyton was covered in chicken broth. He had pushed aside the silicone lid on a cooling stockpot of homemade chicken bone broth and had gone for a swim, she says. Strategies that can help you head off holiday trouble include decorating with unbreakable ornaments, forgoing tinsel and putting unsupervised food out of reach. To protect her cat Kismet, Sharon Melnyk gave up using ribbons to wrap presents. He would try to eat any kind of ribbon and once bit my finger trying to get at a ribbon I was holding, she says. Choose pet-safe plants, too. Poinsettias have a reputation for being poisonous, but at most they cause mild stomach upset. Of greater concern are lilies, which can be lethal, and amaryllis bulbs and holly. Our pets dont mean to cause trouble during the holidays; they just want to help us celebrate. These simple precautions make it easier and less stressful to enjoy the season. Pets of the Week>> Blair is a talkative 3-year-old domestic shorthair who loves to play and be petted. >> Forrest is a handsome 1-year-old Great Dane mix who weighs about 86 pounds.

Fill up the stocking I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now. From the 1966 musical Mame by Jerry HermanSomehow, the lyrics to We Need A Little Christmas seem sparklingly fitting this week. Trust me, Im the first one to groan and grumble about Christmas dcor on display in the stores BEFORE Halloween, and when it goes into overdrive on Nov. 1 I just want to scream. Whatever happened to Thanksgiving? You know, that poor forgotten holiday? Where are the gourds and scarecrows and fake leaves and pilgrim figurines and festive cardboard turkeys? And, most importantly, what about giving thanks before we careen full speed into glitter and strings of lights? But my tune has changed this year literally. Ive been humming Christmas carols for days. I even put up a wreath, and Im all in for full-on holiday decorating this weekend. I need a little Christmas. I think many of us do. Even if youre not really into Christmas, some holiday cheer is necessary. Four days after Halloween, I went over to my friend and neighbor Lynnes place and I kid you not she had THREE trees up: one in the living room, one in the den and a tabletop tree in her guestroom. Are you kidding me? I scoffed at her. It looks like Macys all up in here. She was happily unapologetic. I love Christmas, she said with a smile. It brings me joy. Still, I went home to Todd and told him as sparkly as Lynnes place looked, we must hold true to our annual tradition of putting up the tree the weekend AFTER Thanksgiving. Then Election Day came, after 18 rather dark months of stress and anger, political arguments, dining-room debates, media doom and gloom and candidate saturation. There were rallies and pollsters and pundits and yelling and blustering and of course, lots and lots of Facebook unfriending. Regardless of which candidate you supported, if youre like me, you woke up the morning of Nov. 9 exhausted and spent. So now Im ready to fast forward and enjoy a very Christmas-filled November and December. This year, Im even going to go to Target and freshen up our holiday dcor. I want shiny balls and gold lights and as much tinsel as I can fit in my trunk. I need some joy. For Ive grown a little leaner, Grown a little colder, Grown a little sadder, Grown a little older, And I need a little angel Sitting on my shoulder, Need a little Christmas now. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

B7-8 BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweeklyNecessity is not the only mother of invention, it turns out: So is infection. An award-winning team of bio-medical engineering students from Florida Gulf Coast University will soon take on a grim statistic with their novel invention: a behavior-altering device to help stop people-borne infections by halting either clinicians or visitors in health care facilities who forget to wash their hands, right at the door of every patients room. Almost 270 people each day, or 100,000 per year, die of infections they didnt have when they arrived in American health care facilities, including hospitals, nursing homes and the like, according to the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many infections can be traced to a simple lack of proper hygiene in both clinicians and visitors, the data shows. After winning a competitive challenge against more than 25 other teams and their inventions in the Eagle Biz competition sponsored by the universitys Institute of Entrepreneurship last December, the team traveled to the University of South Florida, entering the State of Florida Healthcare Innovation Pitch Competition. The data will not just show hand-washing per se, but it will show complying, non-complying and post-complying (washing on the way out of a patient room).

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Although they represented the only team of undergraduates from any institution in Florida, they took second place, dazzling not only others but themselves. It was such an honor to do so well there we didnt expect that, says Allie Sundermeier, a junior in the Biomedical Engineering & Entrepreneurship Honors Program. Now, Lee Health officials have invited the team to employ six prototypes of the device, known as Illumitize, at Health Park. There, in a beta test the second phase of testing to try the device on the intended subjects, named after the second letter of the Greek alphabet the team will gather the data they need to prove their device works. Then they will locate investors and put their invention into full production, perhaps as early as the middle of next year, they say. Illumitize relies on a micro-control processor with a motion sensor, explains senior Joseph Mukulvi, who will also graduate from the honors program with the major-minor combo of biomedical engineering and entrepreneurship. The data will not just show handwashing per se, but it will show complying, non-complying and post-complying (washing on the way out of a patient room), says Mr. Mukulvi. Other team members include Brian Bradley, David Fleck and alumna Dixibeth Villarraga. In the case of Ms. Sundermeier, she had come to FGCU expecting to be a biology major, but discovered that biomedical engineering brought together three things she loved: science, math and engineering, she says. Mr. Mukulvi, however, was influenced always in his choice of study by his mother, a registered nurse in Orlando, he notes. A great deal of the effort required from these students, so far, involved writing computer code in basic C language to collect the data inputs and outputs digitally. Without the help of our professors we might not have achieved this, Mr. Mukulvi adds, citing in particular Dr. Joseph Cuiffi, assistant professor of environmental and civil engineering. We are not software engineers, and the code for collecting data was complicated. He helped us learn how to do that. After winning the initial competitions, the team had to finalize the prototypes, building six. They funded that production with a grant from FGCU, says Ms. Sundermeier. Then they had to locate a proper betatesting site, in this case Lee Health, and convince officials there that the device could have merit. When the data has been collected over an extended period, the team will outline the entire process: The inventors will have to compare the data and the real-world effectiveness of Illumitize, to the objective they established in the concept phase. Once weve established the proof concept thats what the beta testing is for then we go out to investors, explains Ms. Sundermeier. And that may be as important a step as the science and engineering, she surmises, which is why shes also minoring in entrepreneurship. And, by the way, serving this year as director of operations for the Business & Entrepreneurship Club. If you cant market it and sell it after you invent it, after all, it wont do anybody any good. Thats why FGCU officials have aggressively moved forward with programs to bring both communicators (marketing students) and science students (biomedical engineers, for example) together, they say. The ingenuity of Illumitize, perhaps, lies in its simplicity a seemingly obvious answer lying right under the nose of a medical industry plagued by the problem of infection. Weighing no more than about 5 pounds, Illumitize will frame patientroom doorways, creating a barrier of flashing red lights when anyone health professionals or visitors enters a patients room without first triggering a hand-sanitation station. The data shows that one of the causes of these infections is simply lack of proper hand sanitation, explains Ms. Sundermeier. There are currently other devices trying to accomplish the same thing, but theyre more limited in scope. They just monitor clinicians. When youre neglecting visitors, you may be neglecting a huge part of the problem. So we hope this can revolutionize the industry. Such a hope is likely also carried by every patient and the family member of every patient who ever has to enter a hospital or other health care facility.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 BUSINESS B5 I trace my roots back to 1971, when the assets of a pretzel company were bought at a bankruptcy auction for $72,100. Its sales that year were $400,000. By 1974, sales topped $1 million. Today Im a leader in snack foods and drinks, raking in roughly a billion dollars annually and with a market value above $2 billion. Over the years I acquired and introduced many offerings. My brands now include SUPERPRETZEL, Bavarian Bakery, ICEE, Slush Puppie, Luigis, Mary Bs, Daddy Rays, Whole Fruit, Tio Pepes, Readi-Bake, Texas Twist, California Churros, Patio and The Funnel Cake Factory. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. THE MOTLEY FOOLTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest Investment The Motley Fool Take Name That Company Last weeks trivia answer Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Shopping for RetailersIts smart to invest only in companies and industries that you understand well. The retail industry is a promising hunting ground, as most of us spend time in stores and shopping centers, and because their financial statements can be less cryptic than those of energy or financial companies. You still need to make sure a retailer youre interested in is also a promising investment candidate. Here are three tips that can help. No. 1: Assess same-store sales, or comps, which reflect sales at stores open more than a year and thereby exclude revenue bumps from newly opened locations. This is the most closely watched figure in retail earnings reports, best representing how the underlying business is performing. Be a little forgiving, though, as solid retailers will occasionally post lackluster numbers and when they do, it may be a good time to buy. No. 2: Look for sector trends and follow growing segments. Not all retail sectors are equal. Some have performed much better than others in recent years. While electronics sales have struggled, sales at home-improvement stores such as Home Depot and Lowes have boomed, thanks to a bullish housing market and low mortgage rates. The Census Bureau provides a handy report on retail sales by sector (visit census.gov/retail), and it recently showed strength in restaurants and bars, and health and personal care stores. Drugstore chains have benefited from Obamacare, which has driven increases in prescriptions, bringing in sales and traffic. No. 3: Consider the e-commerce effect. Another reason drugstore chains, restaurants and home-improvement stores have done well is that they are essentially Amazon-proof. The e-commerce giant has toppled brick-and-mortar bookstores and electronics stores, and is now threatening department stores. Sectors that have a protective moat against e-commerce and Amazon have thrived and even traditional retailers can benefit from e-commerce. Wal-Marts online grocery pickup program has proven to be a hit and has expanded to nearly 400 stores in more than 60 markets. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Amazon and has recommended Amazon and Home Depot.) Fickle and UnpredictableI have never, ever made money on a semiconductor stock. I am finished with them. Forget it. Theyre way too fickle and unpredictable for me. A.H., DetroitThe Fool Responds: A key thing to understand about semiconductor stocks is that theyre cyclical. They will go through boom and bust periods, as the economy heats up and cools off. If you dont understand that and you jump in after some stocks have surged, you may be in for a rude awakening. While some semiconductor chips are highly specialized, many others have become commodities which means they have little pricing power and have to be very competitive. They often have very thin profit margins. The fortunes of many semiconductor companies will rise or fall based on the work theyre contracted to do. A company may have provided chips for a blockbuster smartphone, but if its offerings are not included in the next version of the phone and it loses a major customer, it will fall on very hard times. Its A-OK to rule out industries that dont interest you or ones you dont understand well. Fortunately, there are many industries out there, and many compelling companies within most of them. For best results, stick with what truly interests you and what youve researched diligently, where you are very familiar with the major players, their competitive positions, strengths, weaknesses and growth prospects. High Yield, Low VolatilityIf youre looking for a high-yield, low-volatility stock, consider big pharma stalwart GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK). Its facing declining sales of its asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) drug Advair due to patent exclusivity expiration, but generic versions have yet to hit the market. A few are expected within the next three years, though, and sales of the $8 billion-a-year drug are certain to decline, perhaps precipitously. Fortunately, GlaxoSmithKline has conducted a transformational asset swap with Novartis. It sold its small-molecule oncology development platform for $16 billion, acquired Novartis vaccine operations (minus influenza) for about $7 billion, and the duo formed a joint venture for their consumer health products divisions. These moves helped GlaxoSmithKline diversify its revenue stream and improve its margins and pricing power within all three of its operating segments: pharmaceuticals, vaccines and consumer health products. New drug launches are another source of growth. GlaxoSmithKline is the majority owner of ViiV Healthcare, the company behind innovative HIV medicines Triumeq and Tivicay. Sales of both drugs combined have more than doubled through the first half of 2016. GlaxoSmithKlines Breo Ellipta and Anoro Ellipta inhalers are experiencing a sales surge. The gains from new drug growth are eclipsing losses from declining Advair sales. Sporting a 4.7 percent yield, GlaxoSmithKline is a solid, income-producing candidate. I trace my roots back to 1923 and an economic laboratory that developed a more efficient carpet cleaner. Over the years, I owned brands such as Electrosol, Finish, Jet Dry, Lime Away and ChemLawn though I no longer do. Today, based in St. Paul, Minnesota, Im a global leader in promoting safe food, maintaining clean environments, optimizing water and energy use, and improving operational efficiencies. I serve industries such as food service, food processing, hospitality, health care, industrial and oil and gas. I employ about 47,000 workers in 171 countries and rake in more than $13 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Ecolab) Initiating CoverageQWhat does it mean if a bank initiates coverage on a particular stock? H.W., Hendersonville, North CarolinaAWhen a bank or brokerage initiates coverage of a company, its analysts will now be following the company, and they will probably issue an official opinion on it. (Common ratings are buy, hold or sell.) There may also be a detailed research report available on the stock, which will be much more illuminating than a simple one-word rating. Sell ratings have long been relatively rare. Thats because since these ratings often come from companies with investment banking operations, the companies havent wanted to burn any bridges with current or potential investment banking clients by being too negative. Many brokerages offer gobs of research reports on companies. See what yours offers, or look for a better brokerage at fool.com/how-toinvest/broker/. ***QWhat are pair trades? P.D., Columbus, OhioAA pair trade occurs when two related trades are made at the same time. One is a long position, where an investor buys a stock with the expectation that it will increase in value, and the other is a short position, where the investor borrows and sells a stock he or she expects will fall, planning to buy it back later at a lower price. (Shorting a stock sounds weird, but its legal.) For example, if you expect people to increasingly have yogurt for breakfast and to eat less cereal, you might buy stock in a yogurt manufacturer, while shorting a cereal specialist. If youre right on both counts, you make money, and if one count is wrong, its loss might be countered by the other ones gain. Want more information about stocks?

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGAfter Trump win, stocks were up for biotech firms and down for gunmakersOne thing I love about the markets is, for better or worse, how instantaneous reactions are to news and events. So while news pundits continue to debate about what a Trump presidency will mean for the country politically, the market had just a few hours between the election result and the market open to decide how to react. And on that Wednesday, the collective market anointed definite winners and losers as a result of the Republican victory. The first big winner of the day was definitely biotech and pharmaceutical stocks. Both Clinton and Sanders were very critical of this sector during the campaign for driving up costs of certain drugs. Many feared that if Clinton won the election she would impose price caps on certain medicines, thus limiting this sectors profit opportunities. With Republicans now in control, analysts predict that there will be less scrutiny of drug prices. As a result, companies from Pfizer to Biogen were up 5 percent to 10 percent. The materials sector was also a big winner on Wednesday. One of the tenets of Trumps campaign was to boost American factory jobs by leveling the playing field with foreign corporations. So companies like US Steel soared on expectations that the new president would enact policies to favor domestic steel companies over foreign competition. Another key Trump campaign promise was to build up our military. That will cost money and defense contractors will be happy to spend those funds on our behalf. Already popular because of their dividends, now there is some upside to their revenue and incomes as well. Energy companies also surged on Wednesday. Trump is known for supporting energy independence in America as well as energy jobs. Environmental regulations and global warming, not so much. These companies are hopeful that Trump will decrease regulations and open new lands for energy exploration. Similarly, banks also had a great day as they too anticipate fewer costly regulations. On the flip side, companies that rely on active trade with Mexico were hurt last week. Stocks like Cemex and even Constellation Brands (owner of Corona beer) saw their prices fall as Trump had campaigned to tear up the NAFTA trade agreement and build a wall on the border of Mexico. Ironically, gunmakers also saw their stock prices drop. With a Clinton presidency, analysts predicted many people would be scared that she would impose more stringent gun laws so they would rush out to buy firearms before these new laws were put into place. Without this fear, Trumps lack of new gun controls may have the effect of actually decreasing the number of guns being purchased in the near term. With Trumps embracing of traditional fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas, it is no surprise that alternative energy companies under performed the market last week. No one anticipates that President Trump will increase incentives for solar, wind or other renewable power sources. Finally, many investors believe that Trumps economic policies will expand the deficit. This is bearish for Treasury Bonds and, not surprisingly, they sold off on Wednesday as well. So while the market picked its winners and losers last week, it will be very interesting to see how many of these bets actually pay off down the road. As he proved during the campaign, Trump is unpredictable and does not follow conventional wisdom. It will be interesting to revisit this list a year from now to see just how right or wrong the market anticipated the economic results of President Trump. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com SCORE invites women to inSights conferenceSue Huff of E.

Brian and Mary McColgan, aka The Useppa People have been selling real estate on Useppa Island for several years. As they were beginning this adventure, they found a watercolor that captured everything about Useppa they loved and proceeded to track down the artist, Ed Brown, with the goal to incorporate his art in their marketing. As it turned out, Ed had been painting Useppa and the surrounding Islands since 2001, when he opened his first art gallery on North Captiva. A dream partnership was formed!! Eds painting, Useppa Cottage Row is now the focal point of The Useppa Peoples logo and for every sale they make on Useppa, Ed recreates the buyers new dream home on canvas, capturing the beauty of the Island and the magic that seized the buyers heart. For those that dont know Useppa it is a mile-long tropical private island and club, three miles off the coast of Pine Island, halfway between Boca Grande Pass and North Captiva Pass, right on the ICW. Without fail, it is another place in time.a place where interesting and hilarious conversations are the norm; where adults play tennis or Bocce Ball or ride bikes and kids run free, play in the water, chase geckos and butterflies or play hide and seek among elephant sized leaves. It is a place everyone thinks is magic and the best place theyve ever been.. they found Paradise without a Passport. Brian and Mary McColgan, Realtors with Keller Williams Realty and Useppa residents for 30+ years, happily show and share their paradise to all interested.The Art of the Sale on Useppa Island &..

Certain to be a holiday favorite for all faiths, Coney Island Christmas is a refreshing reach back in time and across traditions to the centerpiece of holiday celebrations: love and family. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Marguiles shares the story of Shirley Abramowitz (Kylie Campbell), the young Jewish daughter of strong-minded immigrant parents, who is finding her footing in 1939 Brooklyn, N.Y.

Knopf. 640 pages. Hardcover, $27.95. Riff is the word Im looking for. But which definition will succeed in making the connection to Naples resident Nathan Hills grandly ter-riff-ic first novel? Here are two from the online Oxford English Dictionary: (1) A short repeated phrase in popular music and jazz, typically used as an introduction or refrain in a song; (2) A monologue or spoken improvisation, especially a humorous one, on a particular subject. Many of the most astounding passages in The Nix are in a kind of riff style, but the best are extended riffs that go on for many pages. They are boldly and darkly satiric. Laura Pottsdam, wayward student of English Professor Samuel Anderson, is revealed through riffs that express the self-indulgent thoughts that run through her mind and slither out of her mouth. She is at once airhead and supreme manipulator. She defeats Samuels attempt to bring her plagiarism to any kind of just resolution. She exhibits a shrewd gamesmanship through which she threatens his career, a career already threatened by his inability to deliver a promised book manuscript to his publisher. Readers first meet these two characters, and many others, in scenes set in 2011. The major piece of Chicago news that summer is that a former radical female hippy, now middleaged, has attacked Governor Packer. That woman is Samuels mother, Faye, from whom the professor has been estranged since she walked out of their suburban household when he was a boy. Now she had found and lost herself in the violence of the 1968 Chicago riots. This inventive novel is mostly fashioned by filling in the blanks between occurrences that happened during and between those polar years. A large cast of characters is needed to do this imaginative work, and an astounding representation of cultural and physical environments anchors and validates the characters who moved through them. Samuel is something of an addict. He spends way too much time play computer war games, in this case World of Elfscape, inside of which he is Dodger the Elven Thief. Learning about the game and its allure is important to understanding the authors vision. For Samuel, the game keeps his mind off how far his star has fallen (and his marriage fallen apart) since being named a sure-bet young author at the age of 24. His addiction, however, is nowhere close to the complete absorption into the Elfscape fantasy of the gamer known as Pwnage. The riff that captures Pwnages failed attempt to free himself from his all-consuming immersion in this fantasy is one of the most amazing stylistic feats in the book. At once hilarious and tragic, its a kind of shorthand for the theme of emptiness that dominates The Nix. The loss of his mother generates the emptiness in Samuel, who succumbs to writing a scandalous attack on her, the woman labeled the Packer Attacker, in place of the novel he cannot produce. Various degrees and manifestations of emptiness define characters like Faye (defined by departures rather than arrivals), her immigrant father, Fred, who is lost in memories of his Norwegian boyhood, and both Bishop and Bethany Fall, childhood friends whose lives are intertwined with Samuels in psychologically disturbing ways (though Bethanys role later takes on redemptive power). Mr. Hill skillfully marinates his novel in recent American history: the 1968 election season with its Vietnam War shadow, the echoes of 9/11 that conjure American vulnerability and the slumbering economy that distinguishes the mood of the 2011 sequences. The earlier part of the frame is advanced by the fictional appearances of historical personages, notably Hubert Humphrey and Allen Ginsberg. I dont read many 600-page novels these days, and yet I might read this one a second time before the year is out. It is so rich in observational power, so masterful in tuning emotional experiences, so carefully balanced in interweaving its story elements, so richly and evocatively stylized. And it is so true to the experiences of those who have sojourned that territory of time, place, crisis and personal evolution. The 600-plus pages went by very quickly, without the temptation to skip any of them. Widely praised before its late-August publication, this imposing and highly entertaining first novel is certain to collect further accolades. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY leadership; their new hall is twice the size of the old one. Believing blacks are protected by the courts while the white man has to struggle, he just wants all blacks to go back to Africa. And this is one of the more mild comments that can be printed in a newspaper. Hating with unfiltered language and fury, CP peppers his comments with racial slurs. Then a community organizer from the Department of Education invites Ann and CP to co-chair a charrette which, he explains, is a French word for meetings between people of different points of view to come to an understanding and we keep meeting til they do. With these two, you expect the world would come to an end before theyd ever agree on anything. Based on Osha Gray Davidsons book of the same name, Best of Enemies by Mark St. Germain tells the unlikely story of these two opposing individuals thrown together. It opens Friday, Nov. 18, and runs through Dec. 18 at Florida Repertory Theatres ArtStage Studio Theatre. The community organizer didnt realize what he was getting into, says Florida Rep ensemble actor Rachel Burttram, who plays CPs wife, Mary. CPs a quick-witted individual. And Ann is bold and really says whats on her mind, which is a lot like CP. So its a real matched pair, in a lot of ways. Best of Enemies is based on a true story; both Ann and CP were real people. I find myself in rehearsal getting a kick out of watching two people in a tense and sensitive scenario navigating each other, Ms. Burttram says. These are two people who say exactly what they think, so its like: Gasp! Did they just go there? What just happened? In addition to the drama, theres also much humor to the play. Its funny in that certain things are being revealed, or that she had the guts to say things to him, she says, adding the fact that Ann was a real person makes the play even richer. Its a remarkable journey of two people who in spite of their own hate come to a realization that we all have more in common than not. In this region during this period, these two individuals have a real commonality because of a status and class issue, because their socioeconomic situation makes them have exactly the same experience. Because of the perceived racial tensions and stresses of integration, their communities are pitted against each other. But when they are able to just have conversations together, the reality exposes itself. Mary Hodges, who plays Ann, says she didnt know much about the story at first but grew more intrigued as she did the research for her role. Often with a lot of things we take for granted, theres so much of the American fabric we dont know about, she says. I was compelled by the dynamics of the drama and that this was real life. Initially, she thought, I dont fit this role. Im not Ann Atwater. But she found some areas of commonality. I have a 6-year-old son, and Im a single parent, she says. Shes a single parent too, without much income. I do have an education; I have two degrees. But I still worry about a paycheck. There was a lot I could relate to. She describes her character as a true rebel. She was a radical, really going against the grain, in many ways, in her own community and in the white community (she) had organizations she worked with, but she was often going against the middle-class black establishment and doing things on her own. Shed say, Come on, lets get things done, and would act on her own. Ann Atwater, she adds, was bold, unmoving and fair. While the play focuses on the contentious and remarkable relationship between Ann and CP, it also gives us a brief view of the concerns of mothers. Both Ann and Mary want their children to have the best education possible. Mary has very high stakes, Ms. Burttram says of her character. So shes willing to walk out on the edge there and cross the color lines. She has nothing to lose, really. Its for her kids. She sees it as a hopeful play. In Durham, N.C., in 1971, she says, nobody would ever have predicted what happened with Ann and CP.If these two individuals could find a common ground, we all can, Ms. Burttram says. I think its a really powerful story to do here in Fort Myers and in 2016, when things have gotten pretty heated up locally, statewide and nationally.(Just 15 years ago, Fort Myers had the reputation of being the Souths most segregated city.) We cannot ignore where we are today, in this political climate, this election cycle, Ms. Hodges says. The divisiveness (weve had) for almost a year, and what ugliness has come out. Its important to not forget what has happened in history. Its going to be interesting to see how the plays received, she says, adding that its entertaining as well as educational. A lot of things are going to resonate deeply with folks, in many different ways, she says. A lot of people have experienced and lived during the time or had parents and aunts and brothers who lived during this history. Were looking forward to seeing how people respond to the work and to the story. With so much cynicism and skepticism, she says, she tries to remain optimistic.If you dont have optimism, what do you have? she asks. Its a choice to decide in which place youre going to dwell.Best of Enemies, she says, gave me hope that the power of transformation can happen. We are capable, as human beings, of change.

The play starts outdoors in a labyrinth. After some initial scenes, audience members follow the actors down a path and take seats inside a pavilion that evokes the feel of a temple or place of sacred ritual. At this point, the play shifts to theater in the round, compelling the audience to see their own responses and reactions reflected in the faces of members sitting on the other side of the facility. The pavilion is this beautiful, screenedin wooden structure that is surrounded by woods, said director and Ghostbird cofounder Brittney Brady. So you feel like youre both inside and outdoors, giving you the sense that the place is a character in the play. The play is centered on a woman who has suffered some trauma and now seeks to piece together her life in its aftermath. She serves as a metaphor for her village, which is similarly splintered and trying to reconstitute itself in much the same way. Instead of passively watching the story unfold, the audience becomes part of the village through the participatory nature of its involvement both in the plays initial scenes and once it is ensconced inside the pavilion. Theres this idea of a microcosm inside a macrocosm, Ms. Brady said. Whats in the self is reflected in the outside world, and vice versa, and we see that played out in the storyline. A collaboration between Ghostbird co-founder James Brock and long-time Ghostbird actor Hanny Zuniga, the story contains impressions and influences Ms. Zuniga gleaned about gender, sexuality and moving through the world while growing up in Costa Rica. Complimenting the plots dreamlike framework of magical realism, the Happehatchee evokes the same untamed, semitropical setting as existed in Ms. Zunigas youth. We were looking for a site that had a very natural look, said Ms. Brady, who needed a venue in which the play and setting could converse with each other. The Happehatchee has been allowed to be very natural. It is not pruned or manicured. It has this real wild feel which is beautiful and works really well with our play. Its also eco-spiritual and has this energy about it that feels very stirring yet grounded, which is exactly the type of energy that the play has.The environmental, experiential aspects of the production serve yet another purpose. When people go into a traditional proscenium-style theater, they begin meaningmaking even before the play starts, Ms. Brady said. We try to destabilize that by giving audience members an access point thats a bit unfamiliar. This new access point allows them to look at whats presented through slightly different eyes. But to make this new access point work, its necessary to catch them a bit off guard. To play around with their expectations. Once theyre somewhat disarmed, they find themselves more open or available to being touched or moved by the plays underlying themes and message. Helping fuel the unconventionality of this production are a couple of actors who are new to Ghostbird Theatre. The first is recent graduate and artist Leila Mesdaghi, who has stunned area audiences with performance art pieces at FGCU, the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center and the Alliance for the Arts. The other is actor, dancer and vocalist Kaleena Rivera. Joining them in the cast are Paulo Leon-Silva and Katelyn Gravel. Music for the production is provided by Philip Heubeck, Victor Ballo, Kaleena Rivera and Leila Mesdaghi, and popular mixed media artist and neophyte filmmaker Cesar Aguilera has created the masks worn by the actors during the show. Since its inception at the Davis Art Center, Ghostbird has increasingly gravitated to site-specific, experimental productions. We do this really well and its what we like to do in order to create a different theater-going experience, said Ms. Brady. After performances, we often hear people say, Ive never seen anything like that before, with the subtext being, Ive never experienced anything like that before and thank you for that. Dating back to the times of Sophocles and Aeschylus, thats what theater was meant to do. Theater is meant for entertainment and profit profit in the sense that you can take something from it, said Ms. Brady. See Tom Halls www.artswfl.com for more news on local theater and arts.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYJust my cup of tea: Gulfshore Playhouses version of My Fair LadyLong anticipated, My Fair Lady has finally opened at Gulfshore Playhouse, the companys first musical in nine years. And its cause for celebration, because the production is, in a word, stupendous. This cast and creative team somehow manage to make this 60-year-old classic both timeless and fresh, which is quite a feat. Among those of us of a certain age who are aware there was life on Broadway before Wicked or Legally Blonde, these Lerner and Loewe songs are extremely well known: I Couldve Danced All Night, On the Street Where You Live, The Rain in Spain, Wouldnt It Be Loverly, Get Me to the Church On Time. But somehow, it all sounds new. This production is unlike any other youve seen of this particular show: 10 actors perform all the roles, accompanied by two pianos that bookend the stage. Three actors portray the leads Professor Henry Higgins, Colonel Pickering and Eliza Doolittle while the remaining seven play a multitude of characters, often running off-stage to change costume and reappearing as someone else scant minutes or even seconds later. Its not a gimmick. Its just extremely clever and efficient. This small cast of incredibly skilled actors portrays more than 30 different characters, managing to populate an entire city. In the same way, scenic designer David L. Arsenault has also done the impossible: made the small stage in The Norris Center appear large and spacious. Multiple arches suggest Covent Garden, where Prof. Higgins (Jeffrey Binder) initially skulks about, listening to various dialects and writing them down in a notebook. You likely know the story: He meets Col. Pickering (William Parry), another expert in dialects, and the two wind up betting whether in just six months, Prof. Higgins can transform a girl selling flowers on the street into someone who can pass as a duchess at the Embassy Ball. Eliza (Patricia Noonan) has no problem being the object of a bet; she desires to become a proper lady, one who could perhaps work in a flower shop and get a better-paying job. The 1950s musical is based on George Bernard Shaws work, Pygmalion. I confess, its never been one of my favorite shows, though I love many of its songs. I remember seeing the movie when I was very young and being totally unimpressed with Rex Harrisons Professor Higgins. Even as a child, I recognized a bully when I saw one. And my opinion of him didnt change as I aged. Mr. Harrison couldnt carry a tune, so many of his songs are just him speaking the words instead of singing. That drove me crazy then, and still does today. But the Gulfshore Playhouse production simply charmed and seduced me. Yes, Mr. Binder as Higgins speaks some of his lyrics, and he still treats Eliza horribly, calling her, among other things, You silly girl, baggage and g uttersnipe. At one point he tells her to just Shut up, shut up. Hes rude, misogynistic, patronizing and overbearing. Yet despite this, Mr. Binder creates a sympathetic character. His Higgins is a little softer. Despite his posturing and self-aggrandizing, he lets us see his insecurities. Boasting of his even temperament while flying off the handle, he totally lacks any self-awareness at all. He transforms Eliza, yes, but in the process, she transforms him as well. Mr. Parry as Col. Pickering helps provide some balance. Hes kinder to Eliza and stands up for her. Mr. Parry plays him as even-keeled, avuncular. A distinguished man, he lets loose during The Rain in Spain, dancing with Eliza and the professor in jubilation when Elizas lessons finally take hold. It would be easy to compare Ms. Noonans Eliza to Audrey Hepburn, who played the role in the 1964 movie (with songs dubbed by Marni Nixon), but Ms. Noonan makes the role of Eliza her own. Her transformation from Cockney flower girl into a lady is completely believable. Its more than simply learning how to speak properly; she gains self-knowledge, and you can see it in her eyes and demeanor. Bill Dietrich plays many characters, most notably Elizas father, Alfred Doolittle, with great abandon. Drunken and loquacious, he provides comedic entertainment with Get Me to the Church On Time and With a Little Bit of Luck, two free-wheeling numbers. Music Director Matt Aument has made every song in this production a gem. Theyre creatively staged and choreographed by Adam Cates. Having the score played by only two pianos (by Adrian Ries and Mr. Aument) helps the audience concentrate more on the songs themselves and their lyrics. Every word of every line comes through with crystal clarity, even when sung with various accents. (Though I wish the stage had enough space for two baby grands, instead of two uprights.) The ensemble often supplements the pianos with percussion: brushing a washboard, tapping a trashcan cover, rhythmically pushing a broom, clapping hands and stomping feet. Theres even tap dancing on Get Me to the Church on Time. Its almost like Stomp married with My Fair Lady, though the percussion is always complementary and never overbearing. Purists be damned, its an innovative way to add more texture to the music. And director Kristen Coury, with help from lighting designer Jimmy Lawlor, makes certain scenes into highlighted tableaux, sometimes freezing the action. Gulfshore Playhouse favorite Maureen Silliman plays a number of roles in this musical, from the often-perplexed Mrs. Pearce (housekeeper for Professor Higgins) to a high society woman to a queen who waves regally to the commoners. This irrepressible actress brings humor and depth to whatever role she plays. Sean Seymour as Freddy, a man who becomes infatuated with Eliza, moons about on her street, hoping to woo her. His soaring rendition of On the Street Where You Live simply exhilarates. And Cathy Newman brings humor to her role as Mrs. Higgins, the professors long-suffering mother who can barely tolerate him. This musical is one outstanding scene and musical number after another; its impossible to mention them all. Its easy for the big, popular numbers to get attention, but this creative teams also taken tender care with lesser-known tunes, such as The Servants Chorus. Especially impressive is Ascot Gavotte, in which the high society swells oh-so-properly sing. Each. Word. As. If. Theyre. Taking. Little. Nibbles. From. Cucumber. Salad. Sandwiches. (Note the sophisticated black-andwhite theme of the outfits, created by costume designer Lauren Gaston.) My Fair Lady is a musical about transformation and how education, self-awareness and even love can change us. Its also a look at class and how it can divide us. Ms. Coury has done a superlative job with this classic musical and should be justifiably proud. Yes, the relationship between Professor Higgins and Eliza can be troubling, but Gulfshore Playhouse blows the dust off My Fair Lady and in doing so, also blows the roof off the theater. True ColorsA staged reading of Melanie Paynes True Colors can be seen at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 21, at Laboratory Theater of Florida near downtown Fort Myers. Set in the 1920s and based on a real story, the play tells the story of Kip, a wealthy man who marries Alice, a domestic worker. When its revealed that Alices father was black, Kip, threatened with being disinherited, sues for annulment, claiming he didnt know she was a woman of color. Tickets are $10 at www.laboratorytheaterflorida. com.RIPSometimes I just cannot bear this world. This month has been one of those times. Canadian singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen died at age 82 on Monday, Nov. 7. He penned the classic songs, Suzanne, Hallelujah and Bird on the Wire. Hed just released his last album, You Want It Darker, in which he sings about his impending death and starkly proclaims that he is ready. Its dark and moving and profound. And singer/songwriter Leon Russell died on Sunday, Nov. 13, at age 74. Russell, whod been performing professionally since the age of 14, not only had a great solo career but famously played with many others, including Delany and Bonnie, Joe Cockers Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour, The Beach Boys Pet Sounds album and at The Concert for Bangladesh. That piano! That voice! He mixed soul and gospel and rock in a swampy stew. The world is definitely darker and sadder. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com My Fair Lady>> Who: Gulfshore Playhouse >> When: Through Dec. 11 >> Where: The Norris Center, Naples >> Cost: $20-$64 >> Info: (866) 811-4111 or www.gulfshoreplayhouse.org PEDRO ZEPEDA / COURTESY PHOTOJeffrey Binder as Professor Henry Higgins, Patricia Noonan as Eliza Doolittle and William Parry as Colonel Pickering.

The bid is made in the hope that the opponents, who presumably have the balance of strength, will get fouled up in the bidding. Consider this deal where East opened three diamonds and South doubled for takeout. West passed, and North responded four clubs. South understandably retreated to four hearts, and West just as understandably doubled. Declarer won the diamond lead with the ace and played the queen of trumps. West took his ace and led a second diamond. East won and returned the eight of spades, whereupon West played the Q-A and led a third spade for East to ruff. East returned a club to Wests ace, and West later scored the jack of trumps to defeat the contract four tricks 1,100 points! If you study the matter objectively, you find that South really did nothing terribly wrong in the bidding. He might have overcalled with three hearts instead of doubling, but that was his only real alternative and even three hearts doubled would have gone down 800. Passing three diamonds was simply impossible. Of course, had North held Wests hand, Souths double would have worked out exceedingly well. In that case, North-South might have reached a grand slam in spades, which could not be defeated. The actual deal vividly demonstrates the benefits that can accrue from a preemptive bid. Players who pass up the opportunity for such a bid often lose a chance to create a huge windfall in their favor. Who would think, looking only at Easts hand, that his three-diamond bid would produce 1,100 points?

Culinary Art.Technicolor Views. FILM CAPSULESDoctor Strange 1/2(Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams) Arrogant neurosurgeon Stephen Strange (Mr. Cumberbatch) seeks help from the mystical The Ancient One (Ms. Swinton) after he loses control of his hands. The visual effects are spectacular and the story holds up well enough, making it yet another strong entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rated PG-13.Trolls (Voices of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel) Trolls Poppy (Ms. Kendrick) and Branch (Mr. Timberlake) try to save fellow trolls from being eaten by the bigger, badder Bergens. The animation isnt impressive, but the mash-ups of pop hits and the strong message of finding ones own happiness are enough to make this worth recommending. Rated PG.Inferno (Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, Omar Sy) Robert Langdon (Mr. Hanks) wakes in Florence, Italy, with no memory of how he got there, but soon is thrust into stopping a deadly virus that could wipe out half the worlds population. Director Ron Howards (A Beautiful Mind) pace is brisk and the story is a fun puzzle to piece together. Rated PG-13. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh) Ex-soldier Jack Reacher (Mr. Cruise) teams up with Major Susan Turner (Ms. Smulders) after theyre both framed for murder. A mediocre sequel to the 2012 hit, its predictable and strains to create interest. Even the action is boring. Rated PG-13.Keeping Up With The Joneses(Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot, Zach Galifianakis) Suburbanites Jeff (Mr. Galifianakis) and Karen (Isla Fisher) are thrown for a loop when spies (Mr. Hamm and Ms. Gadot) move in next door and need Jeff to complete their mission. Its not funny, the story is nonsense and the directing is lethargic. Its one of the worst movies of the year. Rated PG-13.The Accountant (Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons) An autistic accountant (Mr. Affleck) is secretly a highly trained killer in this action drama from director Gavin OConnor (Warrior). The role is perfect for Mr. Affleck, the story is gritty in a good way and the action is solid. Rated R.American 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.

YesYou know youve seen jaw-dropping action scenes in movies. What you dont know is how jaw-droppingly awesome the action is in Doctor Strange. Please, dear reader, if you enjoy grand visual spectacles that push modern visual effects to new limits, do not miss this movie. Director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) takes the sidewalk and road bending of Inception to the next level and then some. Characters fight on the sides of buildings and open portals to different dimensions. Skyscrapers split in half, floors change shape and size, and so much more. These arent just exciting action scenes; they are fantastic visual sequences that truly have to be seen to be believed. The story holds up well enough. Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is a brash, arrogant neurosurgeon. His work is his life, which explains why he ignored a relationship with ER doctor Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) for the sake of his career. As happens, life soon humbles him. A car accident leaves the doctor unable to use his hands, and therefore unable to work as a surgeon. After numerous failed fixes, hope emerges as Strange learns of a paraplegic (Benjamin Bratt) whos able to walk again. Soon Strange is off to Nepal to meet The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), a sorcerer with mystical powers who, in her own words, reorients the spirit to better heal the body. Stranges superhero training henceforth begins. The villain is Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen), one of The Ancient Ones former students, who wants to manipulate time and welcome a dark lord to Earth. Along with The Ancient One, her protge Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and a spunky librarian named Wong (Benedict Wong), Strange tries to stop Kaecilius and his zealots from ruining the world. How does this fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Wong explains that the Avengers protect the world from physical threats while The Ancient One and her sorcerers protect it from mystical threats. Strange also wears the Time Infinity Stone, which is the fifth of six stones that will be revealed before the next Avengers movie in May 2018. A word of warning to the easily queasy: Though the film looks great in IMAX 3D, note that (as always) depending on where you sit, even the slightest head tilt might result in a possibly headache-inducing blurry image. Truly, some sequences are visually overwhelming. Usually thats a good thing, but here, given the scale of the images, it can feel like a bit much. If you have a big meal beforehand, and/or are uncomfortable with intricate surgical procedures, go ahead and watch in regular old 2D. You will still enjoy it, and save a few bucks in the process. Mr. Cumberbatch who almost didnt do the film because he was busy with Hamlet on stage in London handles himself well amidst all the computergenerated images surrounding him, as does the rest of the cast. Theres also a decent amount of humor here, mostly from Stranges wise-guy remarks, that the otherwise gloomy movie certainly needs. Ultimately, though, its the bold and imaginative images that make you say Wow! a nd will have you leaving the movie on a high. a t o t s dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Stay for the credits.

Lab Theater stages poignant production about life after stroke BY TOM HALLSpecial to Florida WeeklyLaboratory Theater of Floridas production of Arthur Kopits Wings will stay with you long after the final curtain. Cindy Chase plays Emily, an elderly woman who undergoes a stroke in the plays fractured opening scene and is then propelled into a topsy-turvy, existential quest to rediscover herself. While she has never suffered a stroke, Ms. Chase did have a brain tumor six years ago. To experience what her character endures in the aftermath of her cerebral infarction, she participated in rehab sessions at Cape Coral Hospital for more than two months. The audience is the beneficiary of her hard work, as she becomes the portal through which they witness what its like in the moments before and the eternity following the accident. Ms. Chase is aided in this endeavor by the lighting, sound and special effects created by Technical Director Matt DeNoncour and Production Manager, Sound and Video Designer Brandon Grendell. Their series of arresting audio tracks give voice to Emilys surreal world during her stroke and other crucial scenes. These audio snippets work with a network of flashing and strobe lights to disturb, disorient and hook the audience. Kudos also to Technical Operator Rose DeLeon for keeping up with the frenetic pace throughout the show. Kate Dirrigl excels as Emilys therapist Amy, and Louise Wigglesworth, Patrick Erhardt and Steven Coe are unforgettable in the group therapy scene in which their characters celebrate every breakthrough in regaining their mastery of language. Wings reminds us that our sense of self is tied inextricably to language and memory. If we lose either, we lose all or a part of ourselves.

We asked the price of something. The dealer replied, Well, if you have to ask, you probably cant afford it. Well, then! Looking back, the dealer probably was right. Her price probably was more than we wanted to pay or closer to reality more than we could afford. But antiques tended to be more expensive back then, too, both by comparison to what wages were and by comparison to today. For example, I never would have found a 19th-century French majolica plate for $5 at a high-end auction gallery like the one I found recently. It easily would have been priced at 10 times that at a show 20 years ago. It probably still is worth a good amount more than the $5 I gave, SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis 8-inch French majolica plate was made in the 1870s or 1880s.

Cost: $5 The skinny: The brightly glazed earthenware pottery called majolica has been popular decorative and utilitarian wares for more than 800 years. Its named for the Spanish city of Majorca, but virtually every country of Europe made some form of the pottery. In England, Wedgwood and Minton were renowned for their majolica. In France, any number of companies made the pottery. But I am in love with the shadings of this 8-inch plate, made by Choisy-leRoi, a company in operation from 1850 to 1910. This piece draws inspiration from Japan, right down to the cherry blossoms that fade into the rim. Those Japanese influences became more common in Western design after markets opened there in the mid-19th century. Based on the mark of this plate, which bears the initials HB for Hippolyte Boulenger, a director of the company it was made before the 1890s, and probably was part of a series. I love the carved effect the glaze has on the relief of the design, and it will be lovely as art, preferably on my kitchen wall. Scott SimmonsTHE FIND:A 19th-century majolica plate by Choisy-le-Roibut not the $75 or even $100 it might have been worth in the heyday of traditional antiques. Thats because values have shifted. Simply put: What was treasure 35 or 40 years ago no longer is treasure to the collectors of today. But that doesnt diminish the quality of the piece or the enjoyment I receive from looking at it. In fact, the lower prices on these treasures make them more accessible than ever to own and to use. Thats all the more timely as the holidays near and we debate whether its too much work to use the good dishes or silver. Why limit their use to the holidays? Fine china? Yeah, you cant put it in the microwave, but use it every day and enjoy it. Life is too short to eat off of plastic. Use a gentle cycle and liquid detergent in the dishwasher. The same can be said for silver-plated and sterling flatware. Get it out and use it. It will glow with everyday use no polishing necessary. Sterling silver can go in the dishwasher, though the knives fare better with hand-washing. I hear over and over again how someone has this set of china or that set of silver but never has used it. Get out the good crystal. Treat it gently, but raise a glass and toast the hope and happiness of being together with loved ones. Then do a quick hand-wash and put it away someplace where its easily accessible, because youll want to use it again and again. And, perhaps with the patina of time and use, it will become even more of a treasure than you previously thought.

It is made of a composition material and has glass eyes and metal wheels. Stored inside the turkey are parts for a skittles game, a variety of bowling. Skittles remains popular in many European countries and is played out or indoors. The game uses nine or 10 pins and, of course, a ball. The painted wooden pins often were made in fancy shapes such as soldiers, sailors, spelling blocks, clowns, penguins, vegetables, frogs, ducks and other figures. The figural packages online this year include a large frog, parrot, rabbit, vegetables, pumpkin, clown and many hens with chicks. There is even an airplane that holds pilots. Modern skittles games often are made of plastic instead of wood. This turkey sold for $2,124 at a Bertoia auction in New Jersey. Q: Is it true that Benjamin Franklin invented the rocking chair? I know he invented bifocal glasses, but some say the rocking chair story is a myth. A: The rocking chair story, like the one that claims George Washington chopped down a cherry tree, is the result of an early book by an author who never gave a source for the information. Legendary figures, like the Founding Fathers, often were glorified in paintings and books created more than 100 years after they died. The earliest recorded rocking chairs date from the 17th century in This turkey an antique part for a game of skittles that brought more than $2,000 at auction.

A 1928 book credited the idea of the rocking chair to America and Mr. Franklin, not an unknown Englishman. Ads show that chair makers were selling Windsor rocking chairs after 1776 or adding rockers to existing chairs. The famous Boston rocker with the large wooden seat and shaped back crest was first made about 1825. Although still popular, antique and vintage rockers that were made by unknown makers or companies are selling for $100 to $500, much less than they did 10 years ago. Q: My mother bought a used vacuum cleaner in 1950, and we just discovered it in the attic. Its an Electrolux that is a long, horizontal cylinder of chrome and black metal. It had runners like a sled, not wheels. She held a long rubber hose with a brush to sweep the carpet. Someone told us that old vacuum cleaners are collected. What can you tell me about ours? A: The Electrolux vacuum cleaner was first made in 1924 and redesigned in 1937 by industrial designer Lurelle Guild. His vacuum was a revolutionary modern design that delighted housewives and became a best seller. Minor changes were made in later years and the tank type has remained in production. The 1937 machine already is part of museum design collections. The other early versions with runners are of limited interest as examples of design. Later machines with wheels are bought to use for very low prices. Q: I have some china with a beehive mark. There is another mark with two faint intertwined letters that look like PK between Karlsbad and Made in Czechoslovakia. The plates have a painted classical scene with a gilt band, a cobalt blue border, gilt rim and handles. I have about 70 pieces in excellent condition. Someone told me they were made in the 1790s. Could this be true? A: First, the beehive mark really is an upside-down shield. It was first used in 1744 by the Royal Porcelain Manufactory of Vienna, the firm that made Royal Vienna porcelains. The firm closed in 1864, and many companies have reproduced Royal Vienna wares and the beehive mark. Your dishes were made in Karlsbad, Czechoslovakia, in the Royal Vienna style. Karlsbad was part of Bohemia until 1918 when it became part of Czechoslovakia. Karlsbad was a center for china decorating and exported many products to the U.S. The initials PK imply your pieces were made by Paul Kuchler, a small porcelain decorating studio that was one of many operated in Karlsbad during the 1920s and 1930s. Its hard to price 70 pieces as a set, but your two-handled cake plate could be worth about $150, and a set of eight cups and saucers about $225.

A discussion with the actors, director and crew follows the Nov. 19 show. Having been forced into exile, a mother and daughter are stranded on an enchanted isle. Mother learns the islands magical secrets and uses them to conjure a storm that will bring her enemies to shore. Many scholars believe that The Tempest is the last play Shakespeare wrote alone. The FGCU production celebrates the master writers threadbare and well-worn love affair with the magical world of the stage. Professor Barry Cavin directs the classic Shakespearean piece with a modern twist in honor of the 400th anniversary of the playwrights death. Eleven FGCU students play more than 20 characters. Tickets for $10 ($7 for students) are available at the door and also at www. theaterlab.fgcu.edu. The TheatreLab is in the Arts Complex on FGCUs main campus at 10501 FGCU Blvd. S. Parking is available in Lot 7 for patrons of the theater. COURTESY PHOTO Mutation 3, a sculpture of Styrofoam, rope, pine and oak by Roger Chamieh, serves as the focal point of the set for The Tempest at FGCU.

Can you give me an update on it? Genie P., via emailA: According to FX, Taboo is set in 1813 and based on an original story by Tom and his father, Chips Hardy. Tom plays the lead role of James Keziah Delaney, a rogue adventurer who returns from Africa with 14 ill-gotten diamonds to seek vengeance after the death of his father. Refusing to sell the family business to the East India Company, he sets out to build his own trade and shipping empire, and finds himself playing a very dangerous game. Now we know a little bit more about it: It will premiere simultaneously on FX in the U.S. and BBC One in the UK in early 2017 (as of this writing, an exact date had not been revealed), and it will consist of eight one-hour episodes. Along with Tom, the series also stars Oona Chaplin (granddaughter of Charlie Chaplin, and great-granddaughter of playwright Eugene ONeill), David Hayman (Sid and Nancy), Michael Kelly (House of Cards) and Jonathan Pryce (Jurassic Park, Game of Thrones). Q: Ive heard Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be the first movie in a series. Is that true? Linda E., Port Charlotte, Fla.A: Opening in theaters Nov. 18, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be the first in a series of five films. It was recently announced that none other than Johnny Depp will play a major role in the second movie. In fact (SPOILER ALERT), word has it that he has a cameo in the first film. The next installment has secured a Nov. 18, 2018, premiere date. Q: I hope you have some scoop on what to expect for season three of Lifetimes Unreal. Kallie Y., via emailA: The snarky, sexy and downright scary series will be back for another go-round on the set of Everlasting, the fictional Bachelor-type dating competition show that reveals all the behindthe-scenes machinations that propel these kinds of reality series. Everlasting broke new ground last year by featuring the first African-American suitor, and this year itll shake things up even more by featuring the first female suitor.

Schools hard! was one constant refrain, as was Can I stay home? While Im always sympathetic to the complaint, they both know that attendance is mandatory regardless of how grinding they find their schedules. But I thought a lot about them after carline and figured a sweet treat upon pick-up could help them keep their chins up. A little encouragement and positive reinforcement go a long way with little guys, so I snagged some fancy cupcakes to brighten their day. It always works. They both selected a mudslide cupcake, which features devils food cake baked between two layers of Oreo crumbs and topped with chocolate b uttercr eam. They finished their treat with hugs and smiles and while the mood might have been shortlived, it helped. I needed a pick-me-up, too, and enjoyed my longtime favorite, the caramel brown sugar, and saved the caramel mudslide for their dad, who we can always count on to inject some optimism into the day when we need it. One more thing: Grace & Shelleys Cupcakes takes special orders for giant specimens and while Ive never seen one, I love thinking about it.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Bar Tulia, 462 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 228-7606 Do you love Chef Vincenzo Bertulias Osteria Tulia? Then try his second concept: Bar Tulia, a gastropub right next door. Here you can dine on small plates, pizzas, house-made sausage and other items that appeal to the creative chef in a rustic yet hip atmosphere thats clearly gained a following. Even the drinks are creative; try a Pigalle (a refreshing blend of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, prosecco, soda and lemon) or a Hurricane (three kinds of rum, passion fruit, bitters, grenadine and lime). Graze your way through the menu as we did: a generous plate of fresh ceviche; grilled octopus on greens and fingerling potatoes; a perfectly rendered pizza with house-made mozzarella and tomato sauce with fresh basil; grilled house sausage atop stewed white beans; deviled eggs with smoked trout roe; and a full-sized entre of salmon with roasted carrots and beets. For dessert, try the Sicilian waffle with caramelized bananas and maple bourbon almond truffle. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015 Fernandez the BullMidtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 653-9097 Local lovers of Cuban food have twice as much to thank the Fernandez family for now that theres a second Fernandez the Bull to patronize. For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling is operating on Pine Ridge Road with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a well-chilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari, and then then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 Ristorante Farfalla, 21301 Tamiami Trail, Estero; 495-9912 Chef-owner Michael Fattah has maintained his commitment to top-shelf ingredients, freshly made pasta, lighter sauces and handmade desserts since opening Farfalla in 1998. No garlic knots or meatball subs here; calamari and penne alla vodka are the closest things to culinary clichs. Fattahs fresh pasta is a must-have, and it might be as dazzling as a special of squid ink and saffron fettuccine with littleneck clams, green mussels, shrimp and lobster. From the regular menu, you cant go wrong with one of the half-dozen veal dishes, the risottos or the handmade gnocchi. Dont pass on dessert, which are served with chilled forks (the cannoli and cheesecake both are filled with an ethereal blend of ricotta and triplecream mascarpone). Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 7th Avenue Social, 849 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 231-4553 A lot of Naples restaurants offer great food, but few do it with the fun and funky vibe that 7th Avenue Social has achieved. In the spot formerly occupied by Flava, owner Colin Estrem offers a menu featuring 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: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This restaurants name aptly describes its mission: serving as much farmand seato-table food as can be procured locally. Run by chef/owner Jeff Mitchell, a Culinary Institute of America alum, it has a creative menu, an unfussy setting and a friendly, accommodating staff. The menu changes frequently, depending on what products are available. I recommend starting with the Pine Island clams in red curry if they are offered. The sauce is sweet and spicy, redolent of basil and studded with scallions. Its good enough to drink on its own. Pan-seared triggerfish was expertly cooked, enhanced by a mango and avocado salsa. Mustard-roasted all-natural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, soft-boiled 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 is homemade.

CUISINE REVIEWM Waterfront Grille brings together great food and beautiful views If theres one thing people ask about regularly, its where to go for a great meal on the water. While there are a fair number of establishments bordering water, not all serve food that equals the view. One notable exception is M Waterfront Grill, which boasts a stunning view of Venetian Bay, excellent food and an exceptional service staff. Its a combination tough to find. In fact, its been my experience that far too many waterfront spots feel entitled to serve less-than-stellar food, perhaps thinking diners wont notice because they are mesmerized by the scenery and so wont mind paying hefty prices anyway. While M Waterfront isnt inexpensive, I believe that, in most cases, it provides good value for the money. Many ingredients are organic, there are gluten-free menus for lunch and dinner, and they even churn their own butter (w hich was so good it was difficult to prevent myself from wolfing down the whole basket of bread). The extensive wine list contains a great many interesting selections, although you wont find any bargains. We chose a 2011 T-Vine Grenache from Napa that had luscious aromas of pepper and cocoa with plums, apricots, dark chocolate and raspberry on the palate. The cuisine style cutting-edge continental is something conjured up by chef Brian Roland, who departed the kitchen here several years ago. He was succeeded by Adam Nardes, and now John Berry heads up the kitchen as executive chef. He has worked at the restaurant for 23 years, since it was Maxwells on the Bay, so he understands its culture and clearly grasps the concept Mr. Roland introduced. The menu isnt fussy, but it is clear that each dish has been carefully composed. A bowl of New England clam chowder ($9.95) was simple but satisfying with big chunks of clam and potatoes in a creamy but not overly thick soup. It was topped with a littleneck clam and a sprinkling of chives. It could have been served warmer but was otherwise excellent. There was nothing ordinary about the seasonal butternut squash salad ($10.95), which began with slices of cooked squash topped with baby greens, dried cranberries, cucumber, goat cheese and walnuts and a very light application of honey lemon vinaigrette. My companion and I were in agreement that it could have used a bit more dressing. Entrees are about evenly divided between meat and seafood, but there are also a couple of vegetarian dishes and three pasta options as well. We passed on the jumbo Maine lobster tail, which at $46.95 was the priciest item on the menu. I know lobster prices have risen of late, but that seemed steep to me unless it was a really huge tail. The grilled Scottish salmon ($35.95) proved to be a fine alternative, the fish flaky and flavorful with little seasoning on it, resting atop goat cheese and basil roasted fingerling potatoes, English cucumber, dill and lump crab salad, roasted tomato and garlic crme. This dish was beautiful, with plenty of flavors and textures. The steak frites ($29.95) consisted of several thin filet medallions that were tender and subtly seasoned so not to obscure the flavor of the meat. They came with crisp, super-thin fries and a topping of aged Maytag blue cheese fondue that was tasty but lighter than it sounds. We shared a side order of organic chefs vegetables ($8.95), a delicious assortment of Brussels sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, fingerling potatoes and mushrooms, all cooked through but neither soggy nor overly crisp. We managed to save room for one dessert and settled on the Swiss chocolate gateau ($9.95), a heavenly little round of warm chocolate cake topped with sea salt caramel gelato and pistachio cream anglaise. We left not a crumb. Throughout this lovely meal, our courses emerged in flawless progression at just the right intervals. Our server stopped by often enough to keep our water and wine glasses full and to ensure that we were satisfied with each course. A manager stopped by as we ate our entrees to see how things were going as well. And because we timed our meal well this was just before the time change we arrived early enough to land a table right along the bay and were able to enjoy about 40 minutes of the sparkling waters and beautiful homes across the water and then watch as the sky shifted colors and the sun sank beyond the horizon. This is a choice view, and I suspect its part of what has made the restaurants at the Village at Venetian Bay so popular for so long. M Waterfront seems to go the extra mile in terms of service. How far? Well, I received a call the next day to see how we had enjoyed our meal. No, it isnt because Im a reviewer. It was more likely because Id made a reservation and left a phone number. Its seeing to details like this that makes customers feel valued. Its a practice others might do well to emulate. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com M Waterfront Grill Village at Venetian Bay>> Hours: 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5-10 p.m. MondaySaturday.

Kalea Bays First Tower Hits Construction MilestoneClubhouse also taking shapeKalea 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. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/fourbath 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. They are perfect vantage points to watch 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. Thats because the towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. That includes 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 also 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.

Mintos ultraluxurious Tamarind Grande model at The Isles of Collier Preserve also won for Best Specialty Feature for its unique guest casitas. The design of The Isles Club was inspired by the charming coastal cottage style of the original Naples Beach Hotel built in 1888 as a 16-room inn.

Overlooking the sparkling Cypress Waterway, The Isles Club includes an array of active lifestyle and wellness amenities.

Buyers at Allure revitalize their lifestyle and enjoy all of the benefits of purchasing a brand new homeFor buyers at ALLURE, the new, luxury 32-story condominium to be developed on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River in the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District, the benefits of purchasing a brand, new home far outweigh those of buying a previously-owned residence. One of these benefits includes significant savings on energy consumption, since new homes are held to much tougher national code standards than those that were built years ago. Residences at ALLURE feature energy efficient walls, windows, doors, air-conditioners, and Energy Star appliances, as well as the latest wiring needed for highspeed electronics and communication, and entertainment and security systems. Another benefit of purchasing a new home versus a resale is the savings on replacement costs because everything in a new residence is brand new. This includes all of the appliances, the air conditioning system, water heater, and the roof, doors and windows, most of which also come with a warranty. In addition to the above benefits, buying a new residence provides owners with the latest safety features such as high-impact resistant windows and slider doors, fire retardant carpeting and insulation, and hard-wired smoke and carbon monoxide detectors with battery-powered back-up in case of electrical outages. Finally, if and when residents of ALLURE decide to sell their new home, the resale value will be greater than that of an older residence, making it a smart investment. ALLURE is situated in a tropical, urban paradise with over 50 cafes, bars and restaurants just blocks away. The pedestrian and pet-friendly historic downtown offers unlimited options for dining and nightlife to suit any taste. Arts and culture abound in the River District where the cobblestone-streets are lined with eclectic boutiques and art galleries, historic landmarks and architecture, museums, and even a professional theater. ALLUREs resortstyle amenities include: a private screening room with theaterstyle seating; state-ofthe-art gym; pool deck with heated cascading infinity-edge pool overlooking the water; social gathering rooms with fireplace, billiards, game tables; Bocce Ball and barbeque grills on the rooftop, Pickleball by the pool, and many other luxury features. Luxurious residence features include porcelain flooring, natural gas ranges, double ovens, and quartz countertops in chefinspired kitchens. All residences feature private entrance with high-speed elevators and include covered garage parking with 24-hour controlled access. A variety of thoughtfully-designed, open floor plans priced from the high $300s to over $1 million offer one, two and three bedrooms.
