1. Is there a way to compress or optimize a web font file (.woff)? It takes the longest to download by far of all assets.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Open_Font_Format talks about .woff format, which is already highly compressed via zlib.
It's 47kb - but take note it gets cached so your visitors only get that download that one time. You have it hosted locally and you get a A grade for browser caching. You are loading in just over 2 seconds, you really got no problems. Only 22kb isn't getting cached out of all of it.

You've done a excellent job of optimizing this.
Thanks for the responses, I appreciate it. Even though we're a medium-sized state agency, I try hard to "do it right".

Next on the agenda is a redo to a responsive website that is actually accessible and not just hacked together...job security. :-)
For browsers that support it, woff2 gets 30-40% better compression than woff. You can have the browsers that support it pick woff2 automatically: https://gist.github.com/sergejmueller/cf...bcb3e2f64a
Why not try reducing the file size ?

Most people don't use it all so it can be reduced a fair bit.
Thats what i did here http://www.chambresdhotes.org/
i got it down to 7.5kb but could probably have gone further
