Not All Cataract Surgeries Are Created Equal “I had surgery on both eyes, two weeks apart. Both surgeries went great. I didn’t realize how bad my vision had gotten until afterward – I can’t believe how much better I can see and how bright colors are! Dr. Gutti is a great guy! I definitely recommend him.” – ANGELO SENO

No one should have to sacrifice a moment of life’s grand adventure to the clouding, blur or double vision caused by cataracts. When you’re ready to enjoy clear, crisp vision again, you should know about the next-level cataract services provided by Lake Eye Associates, a vision care leader in Central Florida for 40 years. Board-certified Ophthalmologist Dr. Vinay Gutti has performed thousands of state-of-the-art procedures, including LenSx® laser cataract surgery, the safest and most accurate cataract system ever created. Dr. Gutti also utilizes the revolutionary ORA™ System for optimal selection and positioning of the world’s most innovative replacement lenses, including the extended-range-of-vision Symfony® lens. “The Symfony® lens operates much like the natural eye, focusing seamlessly from near to far and all distances in between,” says Dr. Gutti. “It is a huge advance in permanent lens replacement, not only restoring clear vision to cataracts patients, but freeing many from glasses altogether.”

A lot of my work is free form and relaxing to me and those I teach. Things I’ve gone through in my life inspire me. —CARRIE KNUPP

hen it comes to motivation, any artist can truly aspire to be like Carrie Knupp. Carrie suffered an injury in June 2015 on the night of the grand opening of her studio. She tripped while carrying dishes and severed an artery in her right hand, paralyzing three fingers. This did not stop the Leesburg artist, however, as she created 138 paintings during the three months of her recovery. “After surgery, I was supposed to paint 100 paintings for the Mount Dora Craft Festival. I asked the Lord, ‘How am I going to paint all these paintings? I’m right-handed,’” Carrie says. “The reply I got was, ‘You paint with your brain, use your other hand.’ So, I painted 138 paintings with my left hand.” Though she has used most of the familiar mediums—watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, pastel, cartooning—Carrie has a unique style of painting now. “I paint in molten beeswax. It is called encaustic, which is the Greek word ‘to burn in.’ I use a blowtorch to fuse each layer of wax,” Carrie says. “When I paint, I lose myself in what I am doing. Things happen I may not have planned but I believe were meant to be there.” Carrie spends most days at her studio, Encaustic Guru, on Main Street in downtown Leesburg. “A lot of my work is free form and relaxing to me and those I teach. Things I’ve gone through in my life inspire me. Those pieces are most important to me. They offer an avenue to help others. If I can help just one person, it is all worthwhile,” she says. Carrie often receives positive feedback about her artwork. “I remember when the Holocaust piece won the Award of Excellence and the People’s Choice for three straight months at the Maitland Jewish Center Holocaust Museum. It was for the 75th anniversary of the Holocaust,” Carrie says. “I had a price on the artwork, but a Jewish lady came up to me and said, ‘You must not sell this piece. This piece is of God; you must teach with this piece.’” The woman’s words touched Carrie, who took the price CARRIE WITH HER AWARD-WINNING off the painting. HOLOCAUST PAINTING, NEVER AGAIN “I began traveling and teaching with it, and so many people have thanked me for doing it. Some were descendants of Holocaust survivors, and some were experiencing hatred in their lives, as I have. Forgiveness is a big part of what I teach. My late husband taught me that a long time ago.”

ature seduces motorcyclists, and few Florida journeys are as seductive as a brief, but engaging, ride along the Gulf of Mexico between Pensacola and Apalachicola. From the Florida/ Alabama border, the road east alternates between white sands and open turquoise waters, azure blue skies and tunnels of trees that immerse you in the world known as Old Florida.

Day One: Pensacola to Grayton Beach In 1559, six years before Pedro Menéndez de Avilés established a permanent settlement in St. Augustine, Don Tristan de Luna came ashore at Pensacola Bay. A hurricane blew away his plans, but left Pensacola with a Spanish imprint still visible in the Seville Square Historic District that encompasses a complex of museums and historic homes known as Historic Pensacola Village. After exploring this district, ride to the Naval Air Station where, between late March and November, visitors watch the elite Blue Angels rehearse their breathtaking aerobatics free. While on the base, don’t miss the National Museum of Naval Aviation, where more than 4,000 artifacts ranging from biplanes to space capsules reveal

the evolution of Navy pilots and their aircraft. To head east, you’ll ride south across the three-mile Pensacola Bay Bridge that connects the mainland to Pensacola Beach. Slip onto County Road 399, a fantastic two-lane road where nothing lies between you and the placid waters of the Gulf of Mexico except a strip of glistening white sand. Beyond your handlebars, you’ll see the ink-black ribbon of highway, shift to Escambia Bay on your left, and drift out to sea to soak in views of

Trip Tip Few places in Florida capture a feeling of nostalgia like Apalachicola, especially at night when you park your bike, walk the quiet streets, and tune into silence broken only by the cooling pings of your engine. endless Gulf waters. The 15 miles to Navarre Beach offer pure riding pleasure along the Gulf Islands National Seashore. You may want to pull over for a swim. A bridge at Navarre connects to the mainland and Highway 98, your main road from here on out. Low and level, you ride into the heart of Fort Walton Beach and into a type of time machine. The small hill opposite a row of eclectic shops is an Indian mound that was the center of religious, political, and social activity thousands of years ago. A small museum showcases Native American artifacts, weaponry, and information about the tribes. A high bridge leaps over sparkling waters, and from the road you’ll see the Gulfarium, an aquatic attraction, next to shops and restaurants. Assuming it’s near lunchtime, there are multiple choices for dining with a waterfront view. Even more impressive is the view from the pier that reaches a quarter-mile into the Gulf and frames the coastline’s wide, arcing sweep. Buy

a pass to walk the pier or stop by the small bait and tackle stand for everything you need to grab the catch of the day.

The coast is clear FWB’s twin town, Destin (“Florida’s Luckiest Fishing Village”), is a charming place with marinas, resorts, restaurants, attractions, and soft sugar sands. While you may want to stay over, ride a few more miles, navigating unwelcome congestion through the planned community of Sandestin. Ahead, drop south from 98 to hook up with Highway 30 and then 30A to Grayton Beach, a secluded community frozen in time. Cottages and seaside shacks are largely hidden beneath a canopy of oaks. There’s a downtown, but not by much, and people live here because they can’t imagine living anywhere else. The Old Florida feel is everywhere, and is emphasized when you enter Grayton Beach State Park. The pristine 2,200-acre park’s sand dunes and sea oats open to brilliant views of the Gulf, and here is where you’ll find one of your best lodging options—fully equipped cabins just a short walk from the protected shore. Sleeping six and affordably priced, they’re a perfect place to rest before another day of riding.

Day Two: Grayton Beach to Apalachicola Back on 30A, you cruise past planned communities with recurring frequency. Though each lacks Old Florida authenticity, you’ll probably stop in Seaside, the standin for Jim Carrey’s surreal hometown in the movie, “The Truman Show.” Back on the road, 30A returns to Highway 98 just west of Panama City Beach. Traffic here can be stubborn, especially along Front Beach Road, yet the powdery sands and clear, crystalline waters are energizing. You’ll need all the inner strength you can muster to handle the traffic in Panama City. However, once you clear it and reach the grounds of Tyndall Air Force Base, you return to tranquil riding. Like Eglin Air Force Base, Tyndall protects a huge swath of coastline and forests that makes this stretch of road a great place to throttle through a straightaway of pines. When you reach Mexico Beach, a sleepy beachfront town hitched to the border of the Central Time Zone, the community kick-starts a nearly unbroken chain of fine riding and interesting places. After crossing into Gulf County, Port St. Joe is well worth a stop: first, for the Florida Constitution Convention State Park, where delegates framed and signed the first constitution in 1838; second, for a retrocool shopping district refreshingly absent of chain stores; and third, for a ride out to sea. Cape San Blas wraps its arm around St. Joseph Bay, and from the mainland to the cape, you ride along the waterfront before threading the needle between the bayside and Gulf on a narrow strip of land. Coming in from the north, the road curves in before sweeping up from the south to T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph State Park. If you love the outdoors, three miles of paved parked roads are notched with pullouts, beach/bay access points,

061-124_STY0417.indd 71

and nature trails leading to quiet coves and inlets. The road ends with several miles of hiking trails going to remote campsites on the northern tip of the cape. Far from civilization, this is the rare place to experience Florida circa 1880. Traveling in a group? As in Grayton Beach, eight waterfront cabins are outfitted with kitchens, fireplaces, bathrooms, heat, and A/C for around $100 per night. As the ride nears its end, two more highlights await. From Cape San Blas, 30A leads south to Indian Pass, a place you may not know but will never forget. In a former Depression-era filling station/general store, the Indian Pass Raw Bar is a motorcycle-friendly destination serving fresh-from-theGulf oysters. A few miles farther south, Indian Pass Campground is yet another throwback to Old Florida, with a general store, campsites, and a ferry that goes to the undisturbed world of St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge. You can camp here, on Cape San Blas, or find a room in Port St. Joe. Or you can press on to Apalachicola, the cotton/ timber/oyster town that is now a resort destination of bed-and-breakfasts, art galleries, and fine restaurants. Few places in Florida capture a feeling of nostalgia like Apalachicola, especially at night when you park your bike, walk the quiet streets, and tune into silence broken only by the cooling pings of your engine. You’ll pass historic buildings that are now microbreweries and boutiques and sense such quiet and tranquility that you feel even further from the rush of the modern world. Your motorcycle brought you here. The Emerald Coast takes you back in time.

If it’s fun, it’s done in The Villages! STORY AND PHOTOS: PAT JOCELYN

It seems the older we Villagers get, the less time we spend worrying about what other people think and the more time we spend doing what brings us joy, inspires us, makes us laugh, and tickles our fancy.

f you have seen the Blue Collar Comedy Tour—popular in the early 2000s and starring Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall and Jeff Foxworthy— you know the majority of their comedy routines were based on some exaggerated form of real-life experiences. They were successful because everyone in the audience could relate to their jokes. Overbearing mothers-in-law, embarrassing bodily function mishaps, and outrageous stories of “your cheating heart” are just a few of the subjects they covered. It seemed nothing was off-limits to these guys, and the audiences ate it up like buttered popcorn on movie night. That brings me to The Villages and the folks who call it home. Let’s face it: We would have provided a wealth of material for these guys. The fact is, we’re a 55-plus retirement community whose residents are very willing to laugh at themselves. We would have made the Blue Collar funnymen as happy as ticks on a hound if they had been given the opportunity to transform and incorporate some of our shenanigans into their routines. Case in point: Villagers love any excuse to dress in crazy costumes during parades and special club events. Some of the costumes can be rather naughty

but funnier because of it. I’ve seen bare-chested men dressed in grass skirts and coconut-cup bras dance the hula at Hawaiian Night. At Halloween parties, you’re apt to find a nun dancing with the devil, a policeman dancing with a hooker, or an angel sharing an off-color joke with a biker dude. At a recent Villages Christmas parade, a mischievous senior was dressed in a modified elf costume. He wore a pair of boxer shorts cut out in the back to prominently display a fake derriere. A female Villager was seen moving in for a closer inspection. That outfit received a lot of laughs and more than a few goodnatured wolf whistles from the ladies. Why there’s even a club called the Village Idiots. They admit to having no specific purpose other than to gather together to make each other laugh and meet new friends. In years past, they’ve been known to go out to breakfast still dressed in their pajamas. You can’t make this stuff up. It seems the older we Villagers get, the less time we spend worrying about what other people think and the more time we spend doing what brings us joy, inspires us, makes us laugh, and tickles our fancy. That’s why, like so many others who live here, I absolutely love this place.

he Villages’ on-the-go lifestyle virtually demands it. If there’s a day to celebrate, a competition to be waged, or a venue to be filled, Villagers and district staff will create an event for it and make it their own.

The big, sprawling community holds big events, from sports to entertainment to holiday festivals. One of the biggest events, The Villages Senior Games, is being staged April 24-30 at venues throughout the area. In their 17th year, the Olympic-style athletic games continue to expand. The 28 different competition categories include track and field, swimming, golf, billiards, bocce, pickleball, tennis, team sports, archery, and more. This year, organizers added fencing, racquetball, bocce golf, quoits, a game similar to horseshoes, and two new disciplines in trap and skeet shooting, 5-stand and Crazy Quail. The 2016 Senior Games included 1,730 participants, and likely attracted a similar number of spectators to the area, says Lisa Parkyn, lifestyle events

manager for the Recreation Department and one of the coordinators of the games, which are popular with healthconscious Villagers. “I think it partners nicely with the whole feeling in the area of staying healthy and active, and that kind of lifestyle,” Lisa says. “People are trying to stay fit, they use the facilities, and they want to show off what they’ve learned.” Separating the athletes according to age groups also contributes to the lure of the games, she says, because participants are competing directly against their peers rather than someone who’s out of their league. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to the top three finishers in each age division in each event, and The Villages Senior Games serve as a local qualifying event for the state

surround each hole, making it a unique event, Tim says. The annual Women’s Golf Expo is scheduled for Dec. 2 at Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf & Country Club. The expo is a one-day version of The Villages Golf Festival held during two days in March at The Villages Polo Club. The Golf Festival is the largest nontournament golf event on the East Coast, THE VILLAGES SENIOR GAMES Tim says, drawing an estimated 10,000-15,000 visitors for contests, demonstrations, and clinics by professionals. This year’s lineup featured former LPGA star Annika Sorenstam and current tour standout Paula Creamer. The Villages’ three town squares are best known as entertainment venues, but they also anchor the routes for the yearly 5K Road Race Series. The races usually are run in the fall at Brownwood Paddock, the winter at Lake Sumter Landing and the spring at Spanish Springs, this year on April 15. Runners compete individually the larger events include the Ladies by age group, or in teams. Village Cup from April 27-May 11, the With 384 runners in last spring’s race Men’s Village Cup from Aug. 27-Sept. at Spanish Springs, 759 at Brownwood, 8, the Men’s Resident Cup from May and 472 at Lake Sumter Landing, these 2-19, and the Ladies Resident Cup from are typically the largest foot races in The Aug. 14-17.

He has run at each of the squares and won the past two races in his age category. A team from the Running Club often finishes near the top, too, and those runners aren’t just competing against fellow Villagers. The races are open to all ages, including teens and 20-somethings, from all areas. Families, church groups, and youth groups participate, Steve says. “They encourage people to come from Leesburg, Ocala, wherever,” he says. “They bring people in.” In fact, the race results reveal runners’ hometowns from Miami, Georgia, North Carolina, the Midwest and East, and even out west in Arizona. The Villages Championship Softball Tournament, scheduled for Oct. 20-22, also brings in elite competitors from around the state. Men’s and women’s teams are divided into age groups, and the field typically includes several dozen teams and hundreds of participants playing games at The Villages’ three softball complexes. Anyone who has driven through The Villages has spotted dozens of bicyclists on the streets. The community is home to The Villages Bicycling Club, and the Sumter Landing Bicycle Club, whose members often gather for long-distance rides around the region. One ride coming up is We Bike for Kids, an April 8 benefit for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lake and Sumter Counties and the Sumter County Youth Center.

Cyclists have their choice of 10-, 20-, 34-, or 65-mile routes as they start in Wildwood and pedal through The Villages, Sumter County or around Lake Panasoffkee. The Hearts for Our Hospital Bicycle Challenge takes off Nov. 11 from Spanish Springs Town Square. More than 300 cyclists are expected to ride routes of 17, 32, 64, or 100 miles throughout Sumter, Lake and Marion counties to benefit The Villages Regional Hospital. The third annual Big Bike Weekend also includes a free Cycling Expo & Health Fair on Nov. 10 at La Hacienda Recreation Center. Villagers love a parade, and Spanish Springs is overrun with several thousand spectators during the Oktoberfest, Italianfest, and St. Patrick’s Day parades. The parades have been organized for the past four years by the 12-member Resident Parade Committee, with the help of the Recreation Department.

5K ROAD RACE

The committee puts together all the participants and volunteers. “It’s worked out very well. The Recreation Department is extremely cooperative with us,” says Sally Canna, volunteer coordinator for the committee.

with lots of polkas, is slated for April 17 at Brownwood. Cinco de Mayo is celebrated May 5 at both Spanish Springs and Lake Sumter Landing, and Fourth of July festivities are planned for all three squares. Sleepy Holloween, complete with treats and a haunted house, will be set up Oct. 30 at Brownwood. Each of the three squares host holiday Tree Lighting Festivals (Nov. 27, Spanish Springs; Nov. 29, Lake Sumter Landing; Dec. 1, Brownwood), and the Recreation Department also hosts an annual Christmas Parade in December at The Villages Polo Club, and New Year’s Eve bashes at five recreation centers. “We tell them what we need and, of course, the Recreation Department is more than happy to help us out with that.” The St. Patty’s Parade is the largest, both in turnout and the number of volunteers, requiring about 100, Sally says, while the other two parades use about 60 volunteers each. “The response is wonderful. People come out and do support us,” she says. This year’s Italianfest is set for Oct. 3

at Spanish Springs and Oct. 5 at Lake Sumter Landing, while Oktoberfest will be held Oct. 17 at Spanish Springs and Oct. 19 at Lake Sumter Landing. The squares are home to a number of other seasonal celebrations as well. The Scottish-themed Tartan Day Celebration is set for April 6 at Lake Sumter Landing, and Dyngus Day, an annual Polish event

Various arts and crafts shows fill the squares throughout the year, and two of the largest are both 21st annual festivals, one April 15-16 at Brownwood, and the other Nov. 4-5 at Spanish Springs. Classic cars line the squares during weekly and monthly showcases, such as the Friday Night Car Club Show at Lake Sumter Landing, and the Cruise In Classic Car Show the third Saturday of each month at Spanish Springs. During peak season, the Cruise In brings in 300 or more cars from 1980 and later, and the shows are open to anyone. Beyond the entertainment at the squares, The Villages offers several venues for professional theater and shows. The Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center opened in April 2015 at

10 001-016_VSTY0417.indd 10

3/24/17 4:29 PM


Spanish Springs. The Sharon seats just more than 1,000 guests in a multi-level theater with state-of-the-art production systems. Performances include concerts, dance, musicals, and operas, and the theater has hosted everyone from the sublime Johnny Mathis to the ridiculous Jerry Lewis. “The Sharon can only augment what we already have,” says Brian Russo, The Villages director of entertainment. “It brings in high-level entertainment, including Broadway shows. It’s been a fantastic addition to what we do.” Another marquee star is coming to the stage April 23. Fans can break out their leather jackets and poodle skirts or leg warmers and leotards for “Grease” star and “Physical” singer Olivia Newton-John. Also this month at The Sharon, The Villages Philharmonic Orchestra wraps up its 2016-2017 season April 4-5 with an Opera Celebration, and the Frontmen of Country Music, featuring Tim Rushlow (formerly of Little Texas), Larry Stewart (of Restless Heart) and Marty Roe (of Diamond Rio), are scheduled to appear April 19. The venerable Savannah Center also stages an eclectic lineup of shows: Brian Hoffman’s “Remembering Red: A Tribute to Red Skelton,” April 5; the Central Florida Lyric Opera Presents “Fiddler on the Roof,” April 7-8; and “Jesus Christ Superstar,” April 10-13. On April 3, The Villages MS Walk Fundraising Committee presents the eighth annual MS Benefit, starring singers Mary Jo Vitale, Clark Barrios, Dawn DiNome, and Mark Schmidt. “Our success at Savannah is built around variety and affordability, while still having high-caliber entertainment,” says Brian, adding that patrons of the shows don’t have to be Villages residents.

Yearlong schedules for The Sharon and Savannah Center were not available, but Brian hinted that several bigname concerts are in the works. The 2017-2018 roster of shows for The Villages’ newest theatrical venue, The Studio at Tierra del Sol, will be announced May 10. The 99-seat “black box theater” is staging “Proof,” with previews April 3-6 and a run from April 7-30.

Playwright David Auburn’s story about the daughter of a brilliant but mentally disturbed mathematician has won a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award, and is the longest-running Broadway play of the 21st century. The Studio has presented four plays during its inaugural season, selling out every performance and showing that some of The Villages’ big events come in small packages.

Circling the Sun

By Paula McLain. Life in Africa for a bold woman who thrives on adventure, passion, and scandal STORY: DIANE DEAN

O

ne of the 17 books author Paul McLain researched in order to write her bestseller, “Circling the Sun” was “West with the Night.” It’s the story of risk-taker, trailblazer, daredevil, and a self-destructive woman named Beryl Markham. She was the first licensed female horse trainer in Africa and a bush pilot who flew solo across the Atlantic Ocean. “West with the Night” was Markham’s memoir, written in 1942, and reprinted in the 1980s. This fictional autobiography follows Beryl’s life as she was raised more by the tribal village than her parents in colonial Kenya. She had many romances, but none matched her obsession with big-game hunter Denys Finch Hat-

ton, though he was not hers to have. He belonged to Karen Blixen, who, under the pen name Isak Dinesen, wrote “Out of Africa.” Beryl encounters many people and influences in her life. As a friend, Blixen’s words of wisdom were, “We’re all of us afraid of many things, but if you make yourself smaller or let your fear confine you, then you really aren’t your own person at all—are you? The real question is whether or not you will risk what it takes to be happy.” Beryl took many risks. She is quoted as saying, “You can live a lifetime and, at the end of it, know more about other people than you know about yourself.” It did not seem Beryl thrived on adventure. While the Spanish flu, droughts, and wars were part of the times, Beryl and her friends used cocaine and said, “Pass the brandy.” Her friends advised her on many things, but Beryl consistently defied society’s expectations. Judy Linker and Ann Schooley conducted the book club discussion. Members were asked to consider the many windows of Markham’s life. Abandoned by her mother as a child and living with a detached father in Kenya, she survived an attack by a lion. This may have made her feel invincible. As a teen,

her father forced her to marry a man she didn’t love. Her second husband, a Brit and a mama’s boy, may have allowed the Queen of England to pay Beryl to leave. Her third husband divorced her for infidelity. One book club member described Beryl as, “Someone you would invite to your party, but hang on to your husband.” Along with Africa, Beryl’s love affair with Finch Hatton (played by Robert Redford in the movie) dominates the story. He shared “Leaves of Grass” by Walt Whitman with her because it expressed the “self-sufficiency and free-spiritedness” that he saw in her. Beryl relished that wildness in both of them.

Games: A Novel

About the Author

BY DANIELLE STEEL

Paula McLain is quoted as saying, “The title ‘Circling the Sun’ thus refers not simply to flying, as I thought at first, but to Markham’s whole go-for-broke approach to life.” Abandoned by her own parents, McLain and her sisters were wards of the court in California. She could relate to some of Markham’s feelings and knew the experience of trying to support herself. Eventually, McLain received a master’s of fine arts degree from the University of Michigan. She resides in Cleveland with her family.

Member Comments This book is historical fiction with the author’s interpretation of the characters, the conversations, and events. I found the writing itself incredibly engrossing, and the Britishhistorical fiction makes me want to read the true story. —Pam Sherman, Santo Domingo

9 Without

Another well-written, absorbing story by Paula McLain! Beryl Markham is an author’s dream character, so full of life and yet utterly flawed. I would love to spend an evening or two with Beryl, but she could never become a close friend. —Kathy Porter, Rio Ponderosa

1. EMPLOYEE RECRUITMENT: Social media is a low-cost tool that four out of five Americans use each month to communicate with other people and organizations. In particular, companies can use social platforms to publish job listings, correspond with candidates and complete applicant background checks. Also, organizations can monitor social feedback to estimate the success of recruiting programs.

86

lakeandsumter

061-124_STY0417.indd 86

2. MARKET RESEARCH: Organizations employ social media platforms to learn about consumer lifestyles and opinions, pro and con, which influence their purchases says Stephen Rappaport, author of Listen First: Turning Social Media Conversations into Business Advantage. Based on its findings, a company can create a target market profile on which to base a marketing strategy.

WAYS TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO IMPROVE BUSINESS PERFORMANCE

About 10 years ago, social media arrived on the business scene. Today some adopters spend tens of millions of dollars on social media strategies while others commit relatively small amounts of cash to simply establish a social presence on the web. But even now, some businesses remain on the sidelines trying to make sense of it all. Although it’s true that the social media scene can seem light and entertaining, and on occasion, somewhat tumultuous or disorderly, adopters can capture economic value from social platform investments. So before you decide to remain on the sidelines, consider these 10 ways that social media might improve your company’s performance.

3. COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE: Social media channels allow organizations to monitor competitor marketing messages and possibly achieve a competitive advantage by interacting with suppliers, customers and investors. An organization can use competitor messages that relate to marketing initiatives, including new store locations, pricing strategies or products, to formulate its own marketing strategy and tactics. Due to the relative cost effectiveness of this approach, a company may achieve a cost advantage.

4. CUSTOMER BASE: An organization can transmit marketing messages and relay positive feedback to millions of existing and potential customers and clients over social media platforms. Also, for-profits can reinforce print or broadcast advertisements and convert third-party endorsements to purchases using social platforms.

5. MARKETING CAMPAIGN: With social platforms, companies can market products directly to customers. Also, messages that are originally transmitted using print media, such as press releases or advertising campaigns, can be reinforced with social campaigns.

M

orris Realty & Investments has three values that guide their work: integrity, experience, results. By putting service first, you know this is a real estate company with your best interests at heart. This includes personal service, quality agents, and complete knowledge of the local area. 2016 Realtor of the Year, Lena got her license in June 2000 at age 18, and has been selling houses ever since. Though she is extremely proud of her many accomplishments, Lena was humbled by receiving this prestigious award from The

061-124_STY0417.indd 96

Realtor Association of Lake and Sumter Counties.

“We wanted to use Lena Williams because of a positive past experience. She’s Honest, smart, and not pushy!” – HANNAH AND JAMIE EMILY

“We have some amazing Realtors in this community, so this was a surprise and a true honor to receive this award,” Lena says. “There are many de-

serving agents out there. I am humbled and very grateful.” Theresa Morris, Lena’s mother and broker of Morris Realty & Investments, founded the company on the principles of integrity, relationships, and trust. She is a leader in the local real estate community, and truly understands the market in this area and the tools she needs to make a difference with her customers. Lena feels like she learned from the best. Morris Realty and Investments can help you understand the complex issues surrounding the Real Estate industry. They have the leading agents with extensive area

knowledge who are attentive and provide individualized service. “I feel honored to have the opportunity to work side by side with some of the best agents in the industry at Morris Realty,” Lena says. Morris Realty and Investments was among the top 10 real estate firms locally with only 12 agents. Morris Realty and Investments has the leading agents with extensive advertising and advanced marketing tools. All of this equals a better team with a better plan and a strategy for success. Theresa ensures that her agents provide professional advice and recommendations that lead to the right decisions for clients, whether they’re buying or selling. Lena is a Lake County native and a graduate of Leesburg High School, and she offers that as one of the reasons she loves her job so much. “I love living here, and I love selling people their homes here. This year I closed more than $17 million in real estate, but the important number is 77 transactions,” Lena says. “Each transaction represents a family or person I was able to help. I owe being Realtor of the Year to all my clients from the past 17 years.” There’s another reason she has such a deep appreciation for the award—part of the recognition is due to community service. “I am passionate about this. I think everyone should dedicate some time to the betterment of the community,” Lena says. “I volunteer for several organizations, including the Boys and Girls Clubs. It is very important to me to give back. I cannot stress that enough. I encourage every

person to choose something to do to make your community better,” Lena says. “Being able to help the children in our area is my passion. They are our future, which means they will

directly impact our community for many years to come. What I invest in the Boys and Girls Club will strengthen and vitalize our community.” Lena freely admits it’s the personal connection she makes with each client that really appeals to her. She’s delighted when she runs into clients years later and they share how much they’re still enjoying the home she helped them purchase. “When you help someone with what’s often the largest purchase of their lives, they are trusting you. I don’t take that lightly.” She’s also very pleased when a past client recommends her to friends or family, but no matter how the client comes to her, the dedication to pleasing that client is the same. “I approach every client with an open mind, listening to their concerns, and trying to guide them in the right direction.”

Real estate in this area is thriving, according to Lena. Prices are on a slow upswing, and buyers are not scared of the market. It’s still possible to buy a home with mortgage payments that are less than rent. If you are renting, Lena says, it’s always a smart move to buy, and now is also a good time to upgrade to a larger home. Family is very important to Lena. She and her husband Craig have two lovely daughters—Hannah is 8 years old and Haley is 6. Their favorite family activity is camping at Disney World and getting away for weekend trips to enjoy some quality time together. “My family is my strength, and my husband is my biggest fan. He is always there to encourage and support me,” Lena says. “My family knows how hard I work so when we have our time together, we play hard.” That little girl who used to tell her mother she’d never work in real estate has done quite well. Whether you’re looking for your family home, needed someone to manage a property you own, or want to purchase commercial real estate in the perfect place for your business, Lena is the Realtor you need. “In the end, becoming a Realtor is the best decision I ever made and, honestly, I owe it all to my mother. She is my inspiration.”

Time for animal crackers April 18 is hailed as National Animal Cracker Day, according to nibble.com, and animal crackers, or cookies as we call them today, date to 19th-century England. They were initially imported, before U.S. bakers made them for the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. In 1902, they were re-created as Barnum’s Animal Crackers and packaged in a circus cage box with a string—all with the idea that the box could be hung on a Christmas tree for children to enjoy. Several companies make animal crackers today.

Make a cheese ball National Cheese Ball Day is April 17, and here’s a recipe for Pineapple Cheese Ball from Villages resident Amelia “Amy” Lednak. Ingredients:

2 packages (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

Saved by the bell

1 can (8 ½ oz.) crushed pineapple, drained

It’s bell pepper season in Florida, and these tasty vegetables can be used in a variety of recipes. They also taste good eaten raw with or without dip. When you’re buying your peppers look for smooth skin that has a gloss and is tight. Be sure there are no watery spots or wrinkly places. Remember, green peppers are less sweet than the yellow or red ones. You can store them in the refrigerator for a week or chop them up, put them in the freezer and just get out what you need to put in soup, spaghetti sauce, or other great recipes. Tip for seeding: Hold the pepper tightly and slam the stem end on the counter. This loosens the seed core and makes it easy to pull out.

2 cups chopped pecans ¼ cup finely chopped green pepper 2-3 tablespoons minced onion 1 tablespoon seasoned salt Directions:

Cream the cheese. Add all ingredients using half of the pecans. Shape into a ball or log. Roll in remaining pecans. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Amy suggests garnishing the ball with pineapple rings, cherries, and parsley.

Building a better tomato Looking for a tastier tomato? A global team of scientists is on the case. Harry Klee, a horticulture professor with the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, along with researchers from China, Israel and Spain, have identified chemical combinations that contribute to better tomato flavor. Modern tomatoes lack sufficient sugars and volatile chemicals critical to flavor, traits that have been lost over the years because breeders haven’t had tools to screen for flavor, Harry says in a UF/IFAS news release. “We’re just fixing what has been damaged over the last half-century to push them back to where they were a century ago, taste-wise,” Harry says in an IFAS news release. “We can make the supermarket tomato taste noticeably better.” Because breeding takes time, Harry says the genetic traits from the study may take three or four years to produce new tomato varieties. Florida growers produced 33,000 acres of tomatoes worth $437 million annually as of 2014, according to UF/IFAS research.

aster is such a beautiful time of the year. For those who observe, it’s a beautiful symbol of hope and all things new. I love the flowers, the adorable dresses, and let’s be honest, the food! I think back to Easters as a kid and the same delicious, comfortable foods come to mind. Glazed ham, deviled eggs for days, and coconut anything. I took those familiar flavors and turned them into an upscale brunch. Because, honestly, who doesn’t love brunch? Now don’t get scared, this brunch is upscale for sure, but we’ll keep it easy and simple. A brunch isn’t complete without mimosas, so my advice is pour yourself a nice cold glass of champagne, throw on a spring-y apron, and let’s head to the kitchen.

Easter Brunch Menu Shaved Asparagus, Roasted Tomato, & Prosciutto Tart Coconut, Granola, & Yogurt Parfaits Smoked Salmon Platter Mimosas To round out this delicious brunch, we are going make one easyto-assemble dish that also can serve as your table’s centerpiece. No need to turn on the oven, and the ingredients can be prepared hours in advance, which is my favorite part. The stunning Smoked Salmon Platter will look great: Silky, cold, smoked salmon sliced thin, and surrounded with a whipped cream cheese spread, bagels, flatbreads, and tons of fun and classic toppings in which to indulge.

Smoked Salmon Platter Ingredients

2

lbs. thinly sliced smoked salmon

1

English cucumber, sliced thin

16

oz. jar of capers

16

oz. whipped cream cheese Fresh dill (2-3 packets of the fresh herbs you buy in the store)

A variety of bagels (I love to use small bagels) 1

red onion, sliced thin

2

tomatoes, sliced thin Radishes, sliced thin Lemons, sliced thin (for garnish)

Flatbreads Directions

The idea is simply to arrange the platter however you like and how it best fits your table. No combination on the salmon bar is wrong, but my personal favorite is a bagel spread with cream cheese, then I finish it with a little cucumber, red onion, capers, and pile on the salmon! Those who don’t indulge in the smoked salmon still can have an amazing spread without it. Or, if you prefer, use a hot smoked salmon.

For an extra special touch you can serve your desserts in decorative glasses.

My nod to the classic Easter ham in this recipe is the thinly sliced prosciutto. This delicacy is an Italian dry-cured ham now found in most supermarket delis. The salty bite from the ham along with the buttery texture is the perfect addition to this tart.

Shaved Asparagus, Roasted Tomato, & Prosciutto Tart Ingredients

lb. asparagus, woody ends removed

Coconut, Granola, & Yogurt Parfaits

1

pint grape tomatoes

Ingredients

1

tablespoon olive oil

8

oz. shredded coconut

3

pints fresh berries

4

oz. prosciutto, sliced into thin ribbons

32

oz. vanilla yogurt

6

cups of your favorite granola

¼

cup all-purpose flour ½ (for your work surface)

1

sheet frozen puff pastry

2

cups Swiss cheese, shredded Salt and pepper

Directions Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. To prepare roasted tomatoes, spread the pint of grape tomatoes on a small sheet pan. Toss lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside while you prepare your tart dough so they can cook at the same time. On a floured surface, roll the puff pastry into a 16x10-inch rectangle. Transfer your puff pastry to an ungreased baking sheet. Lightly score the dough an inch from the edge of the pastry to mark a rectangle. This allows an outer crust to form. Next, use your fork to pierce the dough inside the markings, about every inch or so. Bake the puff pastry until golden, about 15 minutes. The tomatoes go in at the same time and should be stirred once. When they start to pop and shrivel up at 8-10 minutes, remove them from the oven. Now it’s time to top your tart. Sprinkle the shredded Swiss cheese over the inside rectangle of the tart. Next, using your vegetable peeler, peel long flat strips of the asparagus. Sprinkle the shaved asparagus over the Swiss cheese, top the asparagus with roasted tomato jewels and finish with the ribbons of asparagus. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Bake until toppings are lightly golden and cheese is melted, 10-12 minutes.

I love this recipe best with toasted coconut. However, this is an optional step. To toast the coconut, stir coconut in a dry nonstick skillet until it begins to get golden brown. This is not the time to make a phone call or turn your back on the pan. It will go from pale white to golden very quickly. Stir the coconut frequently, then transfer it to a different container. This can be done up to three days in advance. To assemble the parfaits, start with ½-cup of yogurt in the bottom of each wine glass. Top the yogurt with your berry blend; this can be done the day before, just keep the glasses covered. Just before serving, sprinkle granola over the berries, and garnish with toasted coconut and a few fresh berries. To finish off this delightful brunch, pour mimosas for your family and loved ones. Making them is easy; just pour equal parts of champagne to any juice you love. The classic is orange juice, but you also could use cranberry juice, peach nectar, mango juice— the possibilities are endless. So, turn off your phones, dine with your loved ones, and be thankful for all new beginnings. Happy Easter and Happy Spring!

arm, handsome décor of rich dark leather and a burning fireplace offer old-world ambiance at Palmer Legends Country Club in The Villages, where a spectacular view of the golf course makes this a “must” for fine dining and a delicious meal. Palmer Legends does not disappoint. The proof was when a friend and I noticed a large overflow of people willing to wait two hours for a table—on a Monday night!—and soon we understood why: Succulent Maine lobster cooked to perfection was the day’s special well into the night. After our server Amanda arrived carrying a warm loaf of bread with tasty herb butter, we chose a Surf and Turf meal of 7-ounces of bacon-wrapped filet mignon and Maine lobster tail—both featuring melt-in-yourmouth tender goodness—accompanied by fresh green beans and potatoes. My friend ordered the baked potato—served with the wonderful herb butter—and I had garlic redskinned mashed potatoes. Our perfect dinner was capped off with delectable desserts of Bourbon Pecan Pie served warm and a la mode with vanilla bean ice cream and sweet bourbon drizzle, and Chocolate Trilogy, featuring stacked layers of white milk and dark chocolate mousse. Palmer Legends is definitely the place to impress visitors, and casual attire is accepted.

’m not exaggerating my tale—this is a great place to eat. We had a late lunch on a Saturday, so it wasn’t crowded, but customers were coming in steadily. We began our meal with a cup of New England clam chowder. It was hearty and creamy and loaded with chunks of clam and potatoes. Served with oyster crackers, it was the perfect starter. I enjoyed the catfish basket with fries and coleslaw, while my husband had the seafood duo with trout and scallops garnished with onion rings. His two sides were boiled red potatoes and coleslaw. The slaw was very good because it was fresh and crispy and not smothered in mayonnaise. We both enjoy our meals fried, and the breading was perfect. It was light and crispy and didn’t overwhelm the fish. Both meals came with hush puppies that reminded me of my mother’s. I’m kind of picky about tartar sauce because sometimes there’s too much sweetness to it, but this was excellent and just enhanced the flavor of the fish. The atmosphere is very casual, but nice and comfortable. Service was quick and attentive, and we truly enjoyed ourselves.

n 1968, Dionne Warwick released the popular song, “Do You Know the Way to San Jose?” Yep, I most certainly do. And going there is well worth the trip. No, I didn’t drive to the scenic city in California, I dined at San Jose’s Original Mexican Restaurant in Clermont. Three friends and I sat in a spacious booth, with an overhead lamp that nicely illuminated the restaurant’s extensive menu. Mexican music played softly in the background and didn’t drown out conversation. Our waiter, Andres Ortega, brought out chips and salsa, and the chips were warm and the salsa was flavorful with a nice kick—but not too hot. For an appetizer, we ordered the Sampler Platter, featuring a diverse selection of quesadillas, chimichangas, flautas, nachos, and tamales. I particularly enjoyed the tamale because of the tender, shredded chicken that is steamed to perfection in a cornhusk.

If you’re craving scrumptious Mexican food, it’s time to find your way to San Jose.

For my entrée, I went with the tried-andtrue chimichanga. It did not disappoint. The golden brown, pan-fried exterior was smothered in a delicious cheese sauce, and the inside was loaded with seasoned ground beef and savory spices. Next time, I’ll likely try the California Burrito Jr. That’s what my friend ordered, and it looked delicious. It comes with grilled steak, sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, rice, and refried beans. Another friend selected an enchilada and taco combination, which looked equally tasty. We rounded out our meal with delicious fried ice cream. If you’re craving scrumptious Mexican food, it’s time to find your way to San Jose. Fortunately, the trip won’t be far for residents of Leesburg because the restaurant’s owners recently opened a new location there.

Cruising beyond M the port

Portugal’s Douro River Valley is getting an international reputation for its distinctive red wines created in some unlikely rocky vineyards. STORY: MARY ANN DESANTIS, WSET

any people think the only wine that Portugal has to offer is port, the fortified sweet wine that is a delicious accompaniment to desserts. Up until a few years ago, finding a dry red, unfortified Portuguese wine in the United States was tough. Now they seem to be everywhere. For the first time, they’ve even cracked the prestigious Top 100 Wines list from Wine Spectator magazine. Located west of Spain on the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal’s Douro Valley—the country’s major wine-growing region—seems an unlikely spot for vineyards, with its rocky crystalline “schist” (called slate in other European regions) and harsh summer sun. However, the Portuguese

The Grape: Touriga Nacional Used mainly in port wines, the Touriga Nacional grape is native to the Douro and Dão regions of Portugal, where winemakers are creating some interesting red wines. The grape, often used as a building block in blends, is to Portugal what the Cabernet grape is to France. The rich color creates dark wines with complex aromas.

Pairing Suggestion: Game meats and/or strong cheeses It takes strong food flavors to stand up to Portuguese dry red wines, which have complex tannins and can be quite concentrated. Red meat and game are good pairing choices, as is French foie gras.

knew best what would grow on those vertical sloping hillsides—the Touriga Nacional grape. While other countries rushed to plant French vines, Portugal stuck to the indigenous grape variety and now is giving Bordeaux-style blends a little competition with complex wines of its own. Red wines made from the Touriga Nacional grape can seem harsh with the first sip. All the Portuguese wines I tasted needed to breathe for at least 30 minutes or be decanted. Only then did the softer flavors emerge. “When trying Douro wines for the first time, the taste can be very different,” explains winemaker Miguel Roquette, whose family has owned Quinta do Crasto for more than a century. “They also have lots of minerality because the vineyards are planted in rocky schist.” Roquette conducted a master class at last year’s Atlanta Food and Wine Festival, where his Crasto Superior wines were tasted alongside varietals from other countries, including France. He described the Portuguese varietals as new wines made with old traditions. “Everything is handpicked and hand-crushed,” the fourth-generation winemaker says. After sampling several Portuguese wines from the Douro region and one from Dão, south of the Douro River, I was surprised at the differences among them. I also learned that many Portuguese wines have the word “Quinta” as part of the name. Though the word means large house (think “Chateau” on French labels), it is an official designation to show the grapes came from that specific estate. “Superior” in the title means the grapes are from the Upper Douro, the flattest, driest area that produces some of the best grapes. Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard many misconceptions about wines from Portugal. The most common was that Portugal doesn’t produce good red wine except port. I wouldn’t describe the red unfortified wines as poolside sipping wines. After all, they tend to be like a sledgehammer in your mouth if they haven’t had time to breathe or haven’t been decanted.

As I opened the bottles, I was reminded of a quote that winemaker Roquette shared from his grandfather back in Portugal: “Anyone who says they know everything about wine is a fool, because wine is constantly evolving.” That was certainly the case when it came to discovering these Portuguese wines:

CASA ERMELINDA FREITAS TOURIGA NACIONAL RESERVA 2013: This full-body, concentrated wine screamed “licorice” on the first taste. After it had time to breathe, the bouquet became more floral and the taste evolved into jammy fruit. It was excellent served with flank steak pinwheels stuffed with spinach and provolone. (Suggested retail: $14.99) FEUERHEERD’S DOURO DOC RED 2013:Tearing through the bright white wrapper that comes around this bottle was like opening a surprise gift. I didn’t know what to expect. The aroma was very pleasant—more fruity than earthy—but the taste was definitely minerally, like slate. However, there was a party in my mouth when I paired it with chocolate cookies. Those sweet treats brought out the dark fruit flavors. (Suggested retail: $13.99) BARÃO DE VILAR RED DOC DÃO 2011: The Dão region is south of the famous Douro River, but it also claims the Touriga Nacional grape as its own. The medium-bodied wine is blended with two other grape varieties, which gives it a smoother taste, and a little spice. I paired it with a meatball sub. (Suggested retail: $11.99) QUINTA DO CRASTO SUPERIOR DOURO DOC 2013: Also a blend of several grape varieties, this deep purple wine has elegant aromas of violets and delicate hints of cocoa. It paired nicely with cured meats and manchego cheese. (Suggested retail: $23) QUINTA DAS CARVALHAS RESERVA DOC 2014 : I had this wine on my birthday with a Brazilian steak. I was so happy to find it locally because it is an excellent alternative for more expensive Bordeaux blends. Just as with the others, this wine must be decanted and needs to be paired with a strong dish or game. (Suggested retail: $19.99)

Feline Politics One is black; the other is white and gray. One is conservative and quite picky about his food. He’s also quite selective about the people he lets get close. The other is liberal about everything, including treats (one is never enough) and people. Anyone who comes to the door can pick her up. STORY: MARY ANN DESANTIS

M

eet my rescue cats: Ernie, the conservative, and Whitney, the liberal. Both were abandoned kittens, refugees more or less. Even after they were cleaned up and displayed at a local pet store, no one wanted them. Ernie had too much long hair and was solid black, a symbol of bad luck for many superstitious souls. Whitney, on the other hand, would have been adopted sooner had she settled down. She liked to dart whenever she had the chance, chew cable wires, and was even known to hide jewelry. If ever a cat had an ADD personality, it was Whitney. She was returned once to the rescue organization by an elderly woman who wanted a calm “lap cat,” a trait that Whitney didn’t possess. I fell in love with that bundle of energy immediately, though the rescue manager tried to steer me in another direction. When my husband, Tony, looked over and saw Whitney snuggled into my neck, he said to himself, “That cat is going home with us.” Tony, on the other hand, couldn’t resist the huge gold eyes staring at us down from the next cage, which was labeled “Hemingway Cat.” We brought them home together thinking there would be a period of adjustment. For unknown reasons, these two cats loved each other from the moment we opened the carrier door. When Ernie hid under the bed upon his arrival at our house, it was Whitney who went to fetch him. It’s almost as if she told

him, “Hey, Buddy, we have a good thing going here.” That’s not to say they don’t have disagreements. Despite being friends, neither cat likes to share or compromise. No matter how many toys are strewn around, there’s only one they both want and it’s at the same time. Turf battles are common, especially when it comes to sitting with Dad in his recliner. Their friendly wrestling matches can turn into war with lots of hissing and posturing. Just as we think one is going for the other’s jugular, they stop. The one that walks away usually has a smirk that says, “OK, you can be in control now…for a while.” At the end of the day, however, Whitney and Ernie forget their differences and settle down together in peaceful harmony, knowing that life is still good no matter which one has the position of power.
