Coming or going, the area code staysMud, the former program director and talent on Arrow 94.5 FM, still has a phone number with a Southwest Florida 239 area code, even though he moved away 10 years ago. After spending 10 years at WNRQ in Nashville, the man known as Michael Gross off the air now works at WBBG FM in South Florida. He still has the same 239 number. Why would I make a change? Why would I go through the hassle? asks Mr. Gross, whose voice carries all the weight and humor of a barrel-chested, hysterically SEE AREA CODES, A22 COURTESY PHOTO POWER90UPBY THE NUMBERSINSIDE: Amount of kwh the average American used in 2014.

COMMENTARYThe Ronald-McDonald sloganMake America great again, Donald Trumps sloganeering insistence that perhaps we are not great, is just one little bur under the saddle of a bucking election-year horse that has pitched the Republican party of Ronald Reagan on its head. Can the Grand Old Party climb back in the saddle, at least in Florida? Were about to find out come Tuesday, March 15, when Florida Republicans finally go to their primary polls to help pick their partys presidential horseman. Whether the GOP manages to dust itself off, tape its broken ribs and remount its traditional conservatism and I dont think it can one thing is clear: Republicans are fazed, dazed and amazed. So is everybody else. Why, even The New York Times (the Great Gray Lady of sober, progressive ink) has begun printing op-ed laments that praise Mr. Reagan. David Brooks, the Times conservative standard-bearer, and Reagan historian Jacob Weisberg both celebrated the Trailblazer of Trickledown last week in terms that could make even Bernie Sanders like him. Mr. Weisberg recalled that Mr. Reagan supported the biggest amnesty bill in history for illegal immigrants, advocated gun control, used Keynesian stimulus to jump-start the economy, favored personal diplomacy even with the countrys sworn enemies and instituted tax increases in six of the eight years of his presidency. He forgot to mention that President Reagan also took down a wall (Berlin) rather than bragging he would put one up (Mexican border). What a Republican! And what an irony. The irony is this: Lets make America great again was President Reagans campaign slogan, which means that at least one more name could be added to the long string of incriminating labels pasted to Mr. Trump: plagiarist. But I disagree with the Ronald-McDonald idea; theres no again about it. This is still the greatest great country on earth. Great for putting so many different people in so singular a place (e pluribus unum). Great for giving Americans freedom of religion and speech, along with equal rights for women and blacks (finally). Great for setting aside public lands for all of them and public educations for each of them. Great for letting them grow up together and work or travel together and buy homes in the same neighborhoods together and be buried in the same cemeteries together. Great for finally insuring that Americans can marry anybody they please, and raise their children together. Whats not great about any of that? The Ronald-McDonald slogan, therefore, should have been, Keep America great. Or better, Make America greater! But it wasnt, in the same way that some other presidential-race slogans werent what they should have been, either. My colleagues the pundits, mouthing off happily in print, online or on the air from both the left and right, have taken to braying about the downfall of American values and the collapse of our greatness, as if one plagiarizing windbag could actually alter the character of American society. Perhaps theyve forgotten what previous Americans have had to endure from previous presidents, challengers and windbags a significant amount of claptrap. Like this: The pimp of the coalition. It was coined in 1828 by Andrew Jackson to describe his opponent, John Quincy Adams. Trump-like, the genocidal general (he tried to kill every last man, woman and child in the Seminole tribe) likened his challenger to a man running prostitutes and it stuck. Or this: Free soil, Free speech, Free labor, Free men, Frmont, as former Gen. John C. Frmont promised, in 1856. What, he wanted to just give away the whole damn country, like the Republicans claim Bernie Sanders wants to do? That sounds downright pinko, but not as pinko as this: Vote yourself a free farm! A free farm for a vote! They wouldnt put up with such a promise today, especially not the Republicans, unless it was a free corporate sugar farm, perhaps. But that happens to be the 1860 campaign slogan of the Blue-Ribbon, Grand-Champion, GreatestRepublican-of-All-Time, the Great Emancipator himself, President Abe Lincoln. Sloganeering hyperbole went on for years like that in presidential races: Vote as you shot, proclaimed Ulysses S. Grant in the election of 1868. Four more years of the full dinner pail, promised William McKinley, in 1902. A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage, insisted Herbert Hoover, arguably the first fully modern Republican, who then left it to Franklin Roosevelt to try to put that chicken in every pot, starting in 1932. Happy days are here again, proclaimed Mr. Roosevelt that year, before hed even organized soup lines, let alone chickens in pots. It was John F. Kennedy who quit the giveaways and the feisty slogans (Give em hell, Harry, 1948), to ask what citizens could give to their country, not what chickens, cars or farms their country could give to them. This is, he said in 1960, A time for greatness. The slogan helped him defeat I like Ike Vice President Richard Nixon, who coveted the White House. But Kennedy was killed and Nixon came back in 1968 (This time, vote like your whole world depended on it was his slogan that year) and Reagan was followed by the last of the old-style Republicans whose power was assured: The Bushes. A kinder, gentler nation, was George H.W. Bushs 1988 campaign slogan oddly peaceful for an old warrior followed by his sons compassionate conservatism in 2000. But the curtain has fallen rather suddenly on that stage of American history. Now, Sen. Ted Cruz has given up compassion for courageous conservatism and Sen. Marco Rubio wants a new American century. Well, sure. The new century will happen no matter who gets elected, just like it always has.But it wont happen for the traditional GOP. Theyll be a long time climbing back on that horse. o g t c roger A2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 3-9, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY matterbrothersfurniture.comMonday-Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 12pm-5pmNaples, Ft.

Oh, I said to myself. Tell me more. This is serious business. The article declared the three feminists were so-yesterdays news, the put-down sparked by recent comments made by Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright. Hillary got roped in as a party to their sins because she is seeking to become the first female president. The bad girls remarks spawned a raging political debate about whether women should vote for Hillary because she is a woman. Steinem and Albright are both Hillary supporters and all things being equal which they are not for women gender loyalty is fealty to the cause of womens equity. Men have been playing gender-based politics since Adam wised up, courtesy of Eve. Women have had to play the long game ever since. It apparently is never fair to adopt your opponents tactics. Thus the cry of foul ball! from the feminists critics. So, just how awful was what they said? The Judge Judies accused the naughty duo of being totally out of touch with the next generation of millennial superwomen rising up to rule the world in their place. Albright introduced Hillary at a campaign rally in New Hampshire, observing that some young women fail to get the importance of why they their gender matters in supporting Hillary. She cautioned women ecstatic for Bernie to get with the program. Women helping women is where its at, especially if its to help elect a woman as president. She finished with a warning to the women abandoning Hillary for Bernie that there is a price to pay for jumping ship to support his candidacy. Said she, Theres a special place in hell for women who dont help other women. Albright knows a little something about the importance of a hand-up to other women. She is 78 and has had a long tenure in a decidedly mans world. Sixty-three men served as secretaries of state prior to her nomination and appointment in 1996 as the first female in that job. The milestone took 220 years to accomplish, long after the Founding Fathers wrote in invisible ink in the U.S. Constitution that only white men are created equal. She was nominated and unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate. At the time, only five of the 50 senators were women. Albright has enough history under her garter belt to know more than a thing or two about gender politics. For all the feigned outrage, her remark came from a knowing place and was delivered as a punch line with the worn edge of bitter experience. After all, she has been face-to-face and gone toe-totoe with the worlds most powerful, testosterone-driven egomaniacs. So to the outraged out there, some deference is owed to a political superior and elder, even if it is not your groove or comfort zone. Ms. Madeleine has spoken often of women helping women. Woman power is the political clout to accomplish positive change on a litany of issues affecting only women or women disproportionately. The holy grail of the womens movement is electing a woman as president of the United States. The office is democracys toughest glass ceiling women could make it happen. From the perspective of gender, it is a right time to call the question. About the time Albright offended those holier-than-thou, Steinem embroiled herself in another controversy. She is on a tour promoting a book she has written about her experiences as a lifelong advocate of womens equity. She was asked in an interview by talk show host Bill Maher why Clinton failed so spectacularly to win the Millennials womens vote in the Vermont primary. The ladies flocked to Bernie Sanders like bees to honey, trouncing Hillary by the margin of their support. Steinem replied, When you are young youre thinking, Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie. What an unexpected reply. It was the kind of remark a parent makes when their adult child is hostage to behaviors their older and wiser parents disapprove of but know they are helpless to change. It is ludicrous to think anyone is going to tell Millennial women what to do. We raised them that way. Guilt-tripping and instructing our daughters how to vote? In your dreams. Steinem made her remark in the gently patronizing tone elders reserve for the wet-behind-the-ears. Its the tone that infuriates young people already convinced they know everything there is to know. As soon as Steinem spoke, you knew she had stepped in it. Even Maher was shocked that the Mother Teresa of feminists would accuse todays young women of thinking the boys with Bernie were sexier than Hillary. This was a kind of a Clarence Thomas moment when out of a persons mouth comes something you cant believe the person actually said. Theres a lot of that going on lately.

Email her at OPINIONUnlock terrorists phoneThe FBI wants access to the iPhone of San Bernardino terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook, and Apple CEO Tim Cook is resisting and putting his refusal in apocalyptic terms. Should Apple comply with a judges order to help the FBI, were supposed to believe, it will have created the privacy equivalent of a doomsday device, making everyone vulnerable to the intrusions of government and depredations of hackers and criminals. This is trite marketing only Apple can save us from Big Brother, and by the way, please keep buying our phones masquerading as bravery. In the San Bernardino case, one wonders whose privacy Apple thinks its protecting. As former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy notes, Farook is dead. There is no doubt that the government has probable cause to search his phone. And the phone in question didnt even belong to him. It is the property of his former employer, the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, which had the right to search it at will and is fine with the FBI gaining access to it. Apple wants to give the impression that the key to Farooks phone is the key to the kingdom, but its not so. As Timothy Lee explains on the website Vox, the FBI doesnt need to defeat the encryption on Farooks phone and thus, in theory, endanger the encryption on other phones. It just needs to get INTO the phone. For that, it needs to get past the first line of defense, the devices passcode. This is possible through what is called brute force. A robot can punch in every possible combination until the phone unlocks. Except the iPhone has security features to defeat anyone who doesnt know the passcode. The FBI wants Apple to change the software on Farooks phone so it can force the device open. This isnt Armageddon. As Lee writes, Apple has tacitly admitted that it can modify the software on Farooks iPhone to give the FBI access without damaging the security of anyone elses iPhone. No one is going to have his or her privacy compromised because the FBI, in this one instance, with heroic technological exertions, gets into a dead terrorists phone. Apples position is basically, dont worry about ISIS, dont worry about tracking down every possible lead in a terrorism case. Worry about what cooperating with the government might do to the companys reputation, and about a parade of horribles that might ensue if we slide from here several miles down a slippery slope. If Apple wants to avoid getting coerced by Congress into building a real backdoor to all its software, a much larger and more fraught proposition, it has embarked on a foolish course by choosing such an unsympathetic test case. The chances are high that Apple will be seen to be acting unreasonably since it is acting unreasonably. Apples contribution to American life is a product that is almost impossible to live without. The company is synonymous with sleek and cool, and has an enormous reservoir of goodwill. It shouldnt diminish it by staking out an indefensible position and elevating it to faux high principle.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 3-9, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PROFILE IN PARADISEBusy restaurateur manages to make time for family, tooMost Tuesday nights you can find Linda and me at Weekend Willies, enjoying great food and live music by the blues band Mudbone. Weve developed the acquaintance and friendship of many of the other regulars who are there to enjoy the same experience. Weve also grown to admire Rick Scafidi, an owner and the restaurants managing partner. Hes also the owner and managing partner of Tropic Chill, a breakfast and lunch spot. Hes there to greet guests most of the time at both businesses, which means he works almost all the time. Sleep is overrated, he says. Rick grew up in Hudson, Mass., one of five children of Italian immigrants. His father, Richard Sr., was one of 17 children; his mother, Rose, had 10 brothers and sisters. Rick graduated from Hudson High School in 1980 and the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth in 1984. He earned a bachelors degree in business management and was a four-year starter on the varsity baseball team. His first job out of college was as a cost accountant with Data General in Southboro, Mass. He subsequently became the controller for a financial planning firm before completing his securities and insurance licensing. He then spent 17 years recruiting wire house brokers from large firms to become independent producers with his firm. Eventually, however, he gravitated to food and music. Growing up in an Italian family where both parents were great cooks, I learned to cook at an early age and always enjoyed good food. My kids all call me the food snob, he says. And he was always a music buff, he adds. Im the go-to guy for music trivia. He bought Tropic Chill in July 2012 and Weekend Willies the followingJanuary. They were both existing businesses that I put my imprint on, he says. Though he had no experience in the restaurant industry, his 30 years in the financial services industry served him well in making the transition to his new profession as a restaurant owner. Rick offers high praise for his business partners and good advice for business owners: It is important to note that in any business, having partners who respect each other, trust each other and are not out to screw each other is imperative to success. I am fortunate in both restaurants to have those great partners: Michelle Lang, Tom English and Willie Brice. Rick met his wife Sue in a statistics class in college. Shes a CPA and a personal trainer, and she also does the books for both restaurants. The couples four children are all doing well in Florida colleges, their proud father says. Rick doesnt have much free time these days, but he enjoys golf, boating and family time when the kids are home from school. Mentors: My parents and my college baseball coach.As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A professional baseball player.What would you be doing if you werent doing this? Making time for my Original Halloween Tricks and Treats invention. Its ready to go. Im looking for the right strategic alliance to bring it to the retail world.Guilty pleasures: Pasta, bread and popcorn.One thing on your bucket list: Traveling Italy not just for tourist spots, but for authentic cuisine in the obscure cities.Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish could play the guitar and/or that I had the patience to learn it.Advice for the younger generation: Two things: Never burn a bridge. And always remember that what can take weeks, months or years to build in a relationship can be destroyed in just a few seconds, so think before you speak or do. Something that makes you laugh: Family Guy is brilliant, and old Rodney Danger eld bits are timeless. Last book you read: Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson. Something youll never understand: Why common sense does not prevail in a courtroom. Pet peeve: People who smoke.Something people might be surprised to nd out about you: Freddie Mercury was my idol. I saw Queen live numerous times. What are you most proud of? My wife and four kids. I lucked out. What the paradise coast really needs: More beachfront restaurants and cabana bars with music. What you miss about the Paradise Coast when youre away: The slow, relaxed pace.

(Voltage is pressure from a power source pushing charged electrons through a conducting loop, in one definition.) You can see with it, cook with it, get warm or get cool with it. You can open a refrigerator and find food that hasnt spoiled. You can recharge a computer or a mobile phone and communicate across cities or countries or cultures. So where does that power really come from? Not just the switch on your wall or the outlets in your home, thats for sure. At Florida Weekly, were as dependent on electricity as most other American businesses and households, which is why we asked Florida Power & Light, the biggest provider of electricity in the Sunshine State, to give us a glimpse of their newest power plant. That way, we figured we might gain a simple sense of the source of our power. Set to come online April 1, the Port Everglades plant is the newest in a latest-technology trio of three-to-one combined-cycle plants one in Cape Canaveral, one in Riviera Beach, and one in plain view of the Fort Lauderdale docks where cruise ships and freighters come and go. No, we arent superstitious, says engineer and General Manager Rudy Sanchez, who is also responsible for the Turkey Point nuclear power plant. From his point of view, firing up the plant for customer use on April 1 is better than doing it on April 2, for example, since the sooner Port Everglades begins operations, the sooner it will add almost 1,280 megawatts to the grid. That contribution is capable of providing power to about 267,000 households, he notes.Megawatts, kilowatts, plain wattsHeres what that means. A megawatt of power is measured as 1 million watts. In terms of hours of use, a megawatt hour is 1,000 kilowatts of electricity used for an hour. In practical terms, a large TV or a desktop computer may use about 250 watts per hour. Dishwashers or washing machines use 2,000 to 3,000 watts. Meanwhile, the average American home used almost 11,000 kwh or kilowatt-hours in 2014, or more than 910 per month. Louisiana had the highest rate 15,497 kwh, with Hawaii the lowest, at 6,077, according to numbers provided by the U.S. Energy Information Department. Florida users consume an average of 12,972 kwh yearly. This American use compares to an average of 6,400 kwh in France, 4,600 in the UK, and 1,300 in China. The new natural gas and steam plants provide this energy much more cleanly and efficiently than older ones, company officials say, using natural gas delivered through three combustion turbines each turbine includes a 150-foot stack and steam through one steam turbine, all of it combining to put a hell of a lot of power in the hands of customers. How much power can the Port Everglades plant produce? Were doing 1,277 megawatts, says Chris Carmona, production manager at Port Everglades. A fit-looking, focused head of a team of just 34 other employees who will run the plant in day-to-day (and night) operations, Mr. Carmona, a Miami native, graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from Georgia Tech almost 15 years ago. Now, he operates a $1.3 billion power plant. Everything the Port Everglades plant produces will go to the the grid for distribution and use anywhere required, he says. The grid is the system of electric lines beginning literally at the edge of each power plant and moving to substations, then to neighborhoods, then to streets in those neighborhoods, and finally into homes or businesses on those streets, all of which are connected directly or indirectly to the entire system. As it turns out, Americans are the second most-powerful people on earth, when it comes to using electric power. The Canadians have us beat, but only by a little. Canada shows the highest per-capita use in the world, with 11,879 kwh per household or 4,700 kwh per year of use for each person, trailed by the U.S. with 11,698 per home or about 4,500 per person, per year, according to page 1SEE POWER, A12 SCOTT SLEEPER / FLORIDA WEEKLYMuch of the emission from natural gas power plants is steam.

A CLOSER LOOKFPLs next generation power plants: A positive step forwardPort Everglades Next Generation Clean Energy CenterOn July 16, 2013, Florida Power & Light demolished its 1960s-era, oil-burning Port Everglades Power Plant and began building the Port Everglades Next Generation Clean Energy Center. The new plant reduces air emissions by more than 90 percent and cuts carbon dioxide emissions in half. Thats like removing 46,000 cars from the highway each year.The new energy center uses the same footprint as the previous plant and will require no additional cooling water, no additional land and will use existing transmission infrastructure facilities. The plant is one of three new FPL facilities on Floridas east coast using the same system. Maintenance Workshop Stack Heat Recovery Steam Generator Heat Recovery Steam Generator Air Inlet Steam Turbine Generator Turbine Hall Generator Offices Control CenterAll functions of the plant are sent to computer servers in this building and monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. High Voltage SwitchyardWires coming from the generators conduct the flow of electricity out to the switchyard, where the electricity is stepped up the voltage is raised so that it can be sent to customers. Transmission LinesThe electricity leaves the switchyard and is sent out to the grid to be further prepared for use by customers. Reserve fuel storageContains ultra-low sulfur diesel which can be used to run the gas turbines if necessary. Water storage Water inletWater is pumped in from an access canal and filtered to cool steam in the condenser. Water OutflowWater used to cool steam in the condenser is released into a separate canal. The water is approximately 10 degrees warmer than the intake. The 3-on-1 Combined-Cycle System1 Air Inlet: Air is drawn into this large air lter by the compressor. 2 Electric Generator: As with common home electric generators, this larger version uses a spinning shaft to produce electricity. 3 The Compressor: Draws air into the engine, pressurizes it, and feeds it to the combustion chamber at speeds of hundreds of miles per hour. 4 Turbine: As hot combustion gas expands, an array of rotating aerofoil-section blades perform a dual function: they drive the compressor to draw more pressurized air into the combustion section, and they spin a shaft connected to the generator to produce electricity. 5 Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG): Generates steam at 2,600 psi by capturing heat from the turbine exhaust. Also called recuperators, they are essentially giant boilers. 6 Stack: Basically, the exhaust pipe of the system. The greatly reduced nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide emissions coming out are virtually invisible. 7 Steam Transmission Pipes: These pipes carry high-temperature, high-pressure steam from the HRSG to the steam turbine and returns it to the system after leaving the condenser. 8 Steam Turbine: High pressurized steam from the HRSG passes through sets of rotating blades causing the shaft, or rotor, to spin. The rotor is connected to a generator to produce electricity. 9 Condenser: Exhaust steam from steam turbine is condensed with cooling water to lower back pressure from the steam turbine, making space for the steam behind it.The Port Everglades plant relies on a combined-cycle system. The system uses steam produced by its three gas turbine generators to power a steam turbine generator which boosts efficiency. The combustion system is similar to that of a jet engine and burns at temperatures more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 Natural gasSOURCES: FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT, ENERGY.GOV SCOTT SLEEPER / FLORIDA WEEKLY NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 3-9, 2016 NEWS A11


How it startedAt Port Everglades, it all started three years ago. Until then, you could see the waterfront Fort Lauderdale location from many miles away, since four candycane-striped stacks rose 400 feet in the air. They pumped out the production exhaust that characterized the old, much dirtier, much less efficient production methods. But in about 10 minutes on one fine morning in 2013, those stacks came down forever, part of a process of getting clean and more modern that had begun roughly a decade earlier at FP&L, said Roxane Kennedy, vice president of power operations in Florida. Now, more than 90 percent of the power delivered from FP&L plants in Florida is considered clean, which means 10 percent still comes from the old sources, oil and coal. FP&L maintains no coal operations itself, but partners with two plants in north Florida that do, Ms. Kennedy explains. As for oil, much of what the company has sits in standby readiness in case a problem occurs with natural gas delivery. You have to maintain diversity in your portfolio, she says which means if one source falters, others will be available. Since 72 percent of the companys energy now comes from natural gas, says Ms. Kennedy, Were running a third pipeline into the state. We have two now, one across the gulf and one from the Panhandle area in the center of the state, so we have different fuel sources one more offshore and one in shore. The new line will be from shell gas type areas, so were making sure we have fuel diversity. Also, fuel efficiency. The new plant, says Mr. Carmona, can produce as much or more electricity using a heat rate of about 6,200 BTUs per hour, as the older plants could produce at a heat rate of 10,000 per hour. A BTU is an acronym for British Thermal Unit, which is the heat required to raise the temperature of 6 ounces of water one pound of water exactly one degree.Almost ready for operationAt Port Everglades, on a dazzlingly clear day in February, the new plant sparkles like a kids complex toy. Both men and women employed by the specialty subcontractors who can do such work some coming from as far away as Texas with special equipment and skills are busy from ground level to 100 feet in the air welding or running pipes and tubes or, in the quiet control center, studying large-screen computers that monitor every square inch of this complex system. In the command center, a visitor may be reminded of NASA. Out in the plant, however, Mr. Sanchez responds to an incredulous question about maintenance, repair and safety, this way: This is much, much more than any person could do. This depends on computers. Perhaps, but it also depends on both the big-and-small-view understanding of engineers such as Mr. Sanchez and Mr. Carmona. There are noteworthy additions to this plant that might not have existed in previous generations for example, a small, inconspicuous shack that houses elaborate monitoring equipment placed there by the federal government. Every molecule of exhaust released into the atmosphere is recorded and measured for content, and with the date is delivered to federal clean-air regulators, says Mr. Sanchez. The massive pumps and pipes that bring in 93,000 gallons of seawater per minute, or about 570 million gallons a day used to create steam and to cool it are now built with filters and different intakes. One pipe filters out all the trash that can come in, and the other filters fish. A long pipe circles the plant from the pump side around to the canal that feeds out to the Intracoastal Waterway. There, where water is discharged to return to the sea, and where manatees may come in cold weather, fish pumped gently and swimming through the pipe are returned to their natural habitat, alive. We protect them here, says Mr. Sanchez, but we dont promise anything once they go back into the ocean. Key buildings and positions in the plant are protected for category 5 hurricanes but if and when a hurricane hits, some damage can be expected, one of the vagaries of power production in Florida, he notes.How it worksTo understand how it works, first understand that the system needs a fuel source and it needs oxygen, explains Mr. Carmona. And each engine (if you will) in the three-to-one plant includes a generator; a combustion turbine (or steam turbine in the case of one) that consists of both an air compressor and the turbine itself; and an elaborate tangle of pipes or tubes where heat from that engine is recovered. Thats known as a heat recovery steam generator. This plant has three. There is also a condenser that cools steam and returns it to the plant or the ocean as water. So, says Mr. Carmona, natural gas is piped into the site at about 800 pounds per square inch and then reduced in pressure to about 300 pounds per square inch, which is how the equipment is designed. As compressed air is forced into the turbine where the gas enters, its ignited, and the process begins in full. Once you have a stable flame in the combustion turbine, its self-sustaining, the engineer says. Youre continuing to add air and fuel, and the combustion turbine is emitting hot gas. Thats what produces the torque to rotate the generator. None of it starts without electricity in the first place, though. When the a machines are at a standstill, you dont light off, he explains. You bring it up to speed electrically to get the right firing conditions, and initiate the first spark. At this point, you start creating power. And at that point, he says, the engineers monitor both voltage and frequency to synchronize the system with the grid. To the casual observer, the grid begins in a series of towering steel poles and wires located on the edge of the plant, just beyond the canal where hapless but not hopeless fish are probably swimming back out to sea, to be greeted by any predators who have learned that they emerge in the warm water there. With the turbines running at 3,600 revolutions per minute, their exhaust gas travels out a duct and into the big heat recovery steam generators. There, the hot gasses (about 1,150 degrees F) have to pass through a series of tubes a tangle of pipes, if you will some containing water and others steam. That hot gas is recovered and used to create steam from the water, which is channeled to the steam turbine to provide even more power, says Mr. Carmona.Water and powerIn all this process, water is still key, not just air and natural gas. The cooling water for the circling water system, we get from the intake canal and intracoastal, explains Mr. Carmona. It passes through a condenser, through titanium tubes. You want to convert steam back to water using cool ocean water, and pump it back to the generators. Then its put into a discharge canal and put back into the Intracoastal Waterway. Finally, electricity is about to begin its seemingly magical journey. Each generator is connected to the switchyard through rigid lines that come out of the generator and attach to a step-up transformer. What that means, the engineers say, is that electricity coming out of the generators is running at 19,000 volts, and the step up increases it to 230,000 volts. This is like engineer sex, Mr. Carmona agrees where what happens when you flip a switch in your home is conceived and born. Once you put it on the switchyard, thats where the grid begins. The generator is the inception where it all begins but the switchyard is part of the grid. Thats where transmission begins, and its what I think of as the beginning of the grid. Now, using voltages high enough can transmit power over sometimes long distances, electricity travels from the big plant at Port Everglades to substations, which have switches and more transformers, and they drop the voltages to lower voltages so you can bring it to a neighborhood, and drop it to a usable level. FP&L officials describe it this way, says Bill Orlove, a company spokesman: The big transmission lines are like I-95 and the turnpike, the substation is the exit ramp, and then the distribution system is the main boulevard and side streets, bringing energy to business and residences. Its nothing more complicated than that, every time you flip a switch. POWER UPFrom page 10KENNEDY In Florida so far, natural gas has become the most consequential cleanerenergy source for the masses. At FP&L the use of natural gas combined with steam-powered turbines has reduced polluting emissions by 90 percent in 15 years, including a 50 percent reduction in carbon dioxide at the newest plants, according to company officials. In 2001, says Roxane Kennedy, vice president of power operations, we used to burn over 40 million barrels of oil. Now we burn less than one million (per year). The company also uses nuclear power and a small but increasing percentage of solar. At the Babcock Ranch site in Charlotte County, for example, solar fields with hundreds of thousands of glass panels (all that have to be cleaned) will ultimately power 19,000 homes and many businesses the biggest such solar enterprise in the United States. For FP&L, its a lucrative business with state-mandated returns on equity at the top end of a 9.5 to 11.5 percent range and it may get more lucrative (thats after a 28 percent profit jump of $368 million in the fourth quarter last year, company figures show). In January, the company asked the states Public Service Commission of men and women appointed by the governor a commission responsible for watchdogging power providers so they dont gouge the public with excessively high rates to boost its rates by almost 24 percent, by 2019. No decision has yet been made. That would happen in phases beginning next year for roughly 4.8 million FP&L customers, ultimately adding about $13 a month to the average residential bill of about $94 on 1,000 kilowatt hours of use. The money would be used to help pay for the new, cleaner plants, among other things, officials say.

Those brief encounters become all the more fascinating when I stop to think that these moments when a marine turtle ascends a beach to nest represent only a tiny fraction of her 80to 100-year lifespan. For biologists who want to better understand sea turtle life history, nesting emergences are windows of opportunity. Because sea turtles live such a long time, studying them over many years is the only real way for us to learn what they have to tell us so we can appreciate the lives they lead and understand how to protect them for future generations. To this end, 2016 marks the 34th consecutive year the Conservancys Sea Turtle Research & Monitoring Project has been piecing together the stories behind the lives of the of the loggerheads that nest on Keewaydin Island each summer. The project takes time and persistence. Like the nesting loggerheads we encounter, we are in this for the long haul. How do we do this? Our first priority is to protect the turtles nests from predation by caging them. Otherwise, raccoons would destroy 85-90 percent of the nests and few if any hatchlings would ever reach the Gulf of Mexico. We also measure and identify each turtle with a numbered tag so we know whos who and which turtle laid which nest. As the season progresses, staff documents the fate of each nest by excavating them and counting the hatched and unhatched eggs so we know how many eggs and hatchlings result from the efforts of individual females. Since sea turtles typically return to the same beach to nest every two to four years, we now have reproductive life histories of some Keewaydin turtles that go back more than 20 years. In fact, we expect a turtle we first encountered in 1988 to return again this summer. If so, it will mark her 12th visit to Keewaydin. Since we first met her, shes laid more than 40 nests, which have resulted in over 4,000 little loggerheads reaching the water. That sounds like a lot, but only one in 1,000 survive to reach adulthood 25-30 years later, so very hatchling counts. It is life history records like this that highlight how important it is to protect these animals so they can live out their lives and contribute to the next generation of sea turtles. Over the years, Ive found that their many stories are full of surprises. In 2015, the turtles had two really two big surprises in for us. Previously, we only encountered an occasional green turtle nest on Keewaydin; last summer, however, we documented a record 17 nests, most of which hatched successfully. But the biggest surprise was our finding a leatherback turtle nest. Its 97 eggs resulted in 47 little leatherbacks leaving the Keewaydin beach. Leatherbacks are the largest of all sea turtles, reaching lengths of 6 feet and weights approaching 800 pounds. This was the first time leatherback nesting had been confirmed in Collier County. Who knows what 2016 will bring? The Conservancys Sea Turtle Research & Monitoring Project relies on funding from people who support sea turtle conservation and the work we do each summer. Without such generosity, we wouldnt know and wouldnt have been able to share with the public many of the things weve learned about the Keewaydin turtles over the past 33 years. There are also the stories the 125 young biologists who have worked on the project over the years have to tell about their summer with the turtles. It is often a formative experience for the interns, and the project has launched many careers in conservation. Finally, our ability to collaborate with scientists from many universities and state and federal agencies on many research projects has added to scientific knowledge about sea turtles which in turn benefits conservation efforts. All of this protection for the thousands of hatchlings that begin their lives on Keewaydin Island, monitoring and research to enhance knowledge and conservation of the species, and opportunity and mentorship for young interns would not be possible without donations from the public.

BEHIND THE WHEELBMW M4 convertible is all your dream cars rolled into oneChoose one car to drive for the rest of your life. Chances are this is it. The BMW M4 convertible is a droptop for the sunny days, a coupe for the wet ones, a luxury commuter and a 425 horsepower sports car. It can replace nearly any kind of car because it is every kind of car. It starts with the design. This car is obviously related to the 4-Series coupe/ convertible (formerly 3-Series coupe.) But the M4 has a much more aggressive stance than its more common siblings. It is instantly recognizable in places like the larger, front cooling ducts, wide wheel arches and quad tip exhaust. Overall, this car acts like a form-fitting T-shirt. It doesnt hide its muscular physique, but it does not want to be overbearing like a cheap tank top. The interior is also directly related to the standard 4-Series. Anyone who has spent time in BMWs more budget-friendly cars will recognize the layout, but the feeling is far more premium. Most of the major options come standard, including iDrive infotainment satellite navigation system, HD stereo and automatic climate control. The leather seats are power adjustable for every type of support to make sure the driver is both comfortable and stays planted. The three-spoke steering wheel has just the right amount of thickness to perfectly fit all hands. Just like the interior and exterior, the ride starts out like driving any other BMW 4-Series. This means a tight-handling car that fits nicely in urban areas as it easily weaves in and out of traffic. The driving position sits high with no obvious blind spots and the ride is firm without being harsh. So this is everyday comfortable. The hardtop convertible makes this extra-enjoyable with a three-section roof that stows neatly in the trunk while still leaving space for weekend getaway luggage. But thats far from the whole story. The real trick of the M4 is that it has all of these convincing features of a practical and attractive everyday kind of car. In reality, there is a supercar just waiting to be unleashed at a moments notice. Let the revs get above 4,000 rpm and the exhaust comes alive with an added roar, and the 3.0-liter twin-turbo motor will begin to unleash the fury of its 425 horsepower. At the same time, the M4 instinctively knows to hunker down and hold the road even tighter like it knows this is time for triple-digit speeds. This is a car for enthusiasts, so a six-speed manual transmission comes standard. Theres a double-clutch automatic gearbox available for $3K, but that takes away some of the driving fun. Theres a bit of ego in feeling like the driver is still part of the equation in a car like this. It is a very well engineered machine with plenty of technical and mechanical elements happening all at once, but the six-speed is a nice reminder that a car needs a human touch to keep going forward. Despite being a turbo motor, it makes 406 lb-ft of torque. This is important because having passing power doesnt even mean needing to shift gears. So if theres a small gap in traffic or if it is just time to leave everyone behind, theres no delay in asserting the M4s dominance. Then when it is time to be just another regular commuting machine again, this BMW happily settles back into its role as daily transportation. Now comes the bad news. The M4 convertible costs $75,195 and BMW has a very long options sheet. Our tester was loaded with features like metallic Marina Blue paint, performance carbon ceramic brakes and neck warmers for when the top is down on a cool day. These add-ons quickly raise the price closer to $90K. That kind of money can buy multiple dream cars. The difference is the M4 is already all of those vehicles conveniently packaged into one parking space.

Cat cultureLongtime National Symphony cellist David Teie announced in November that his crowdfunding project was hugely successful, freeing him to produce an album of music meaningful to cats. (Cats, for example, relax in response to the earliest sound of their mothers purring, which Teie clocked at 23 harp notes a second.) Teies work, according to an October Washington Post feature, includes examining waveforms of realtime purrs and creating an organ sound to mimic the opening and closing of a cats vocal chords. His KickStarter pitch raised so much money that he might also try creating music for bored zoo elephants or stressed-out whales. In tests, cats responded well to Teies music, according to a 2015 journal article (but with less curiosity at the Washington cat cafe Crumbs & Whiskers).Leading economic indicators has riled up Buddhist temples in Japan, according to a January Associated Press dispatch, by offering traveling monks rentable online to conduct funerals and other rituals. The monk would go to a home, grave or funeral home, at fees and upgrades ranging from the equivalent of $300 to about $8,500. (Many of Japans 75,000 Buddhist temples are struggling financially and destined to close. Complained a spokesman for the Japan Buddhist Association, what Amazon is facilitating is allowed in no other country in the world.) In February, introduced the semi-serious Lube Crude Index as a poignant indicator of how far the price of oil has fallen. Comparing the world price of a standard 42-gallon barrel of crude (about $31) with that of a 55-gallon barrel of Passion Natural Water-Based Lubricant (retailing as, when packaged in smaller quantities, a sexual aid) shows that sex lube is more valuable than crude oil by a factor of 28 a barrels worth of the lube recently priced at $1,175 versus crudes barrel-adjusted $41. As recently as June 2014, the Lube Crude Index was near 1. (Gawker reported that only two actual barrels of Passion Natural could be found and that the price would likely rise further if one of them were sold.)Unclear on the concept(1) Angel Rivera, 49, was arrested in December in Orlando on allegations that he punched a child in the face because the boy was not getting dressed for church fast enough. (The boy was wearing an ankle brace, which slowed him down.) (2) Ryan Dailey, 28, was arrested in Las Cruces, N.M., in February on several charges after, police said, he beat his mother by pounding her with a Bible. His explanation, police said, was that when he asked her who her soul belonged to, she repeatedly declined to answer.Who knew?The much-maligned pigeon was recently found by researchers to be as skilled as humans at distinguishing between slides of benign versus malignant human breast tissue. Writing in the journal PLOS ONE, specialists from the University of Iowa and University of California, Davis lauded the birds processing of color, contrast, brightness and image compression, marveling that pigeons see more wavelengths of light than humans, even though their brains are one-thousandth the size. (Birds are already known to distinguish hostile humans in celebrated dive-pecking incidents.)Police report A near-certain robbery of the PNC Bank in Zebulon, N.C., on Jan. 28 was prevented, with employees treated to an almost-slapstick scene in which the bank manager kept the suspect outside by winning a tug-of-war for control of the front door. The manager had grabbed the door after noticing an armed, masked man approaching from the parking lot just after the bank opened. (The frustrated perp fled empty-handed, but was at large.) Awkward Moments Ahead in Lockup: (1) Joel Sloan, 51, was booked into jail for DUI by a sheriffs deputy in Birmingham, Ala., in February. Sloan was dressed head-to-toe as a clown. (No explanation was offered.) (2) Vaughn Tucker, 23, was booked into jail in Tulsa, Okla., in February on drug charges. He was wearing a T-shirt with large lettering on the front: I Would Cuddle You So Hard. Didnt Think It Through: The robbers of the electronics store Compucell in Springfield, Mass., in December came up empty, but are still at large. A man with a gun jumped the counter and demanded that the employee give him money from the locked cash register. The gunman moved to the back door to let in his accomplice, but that merely allowed the employee and two customers to run out the front door, and the accomplice fled, too, sensing that, with no one to unlock the register, the robbery was going nowhere.PerspectiveAmerican hunters are so trophy-killobsessed that, in the decade ending in 2014 (according to Humane Society figures), they averaged nine imported carcasses a day among the Big Five African species (lions, elephants, leopards, rhinos and African buffalo) most of which require special U.S. and foreign permits, with conservation conditions. Some countries endanger their own dwindling herds just to sell the lucrative permits, and South Africa even offers 150 captive lions a year to make trophy kills easier.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 3-9, 2016 A21 Vi at Bentley Village residents form charitable foundationThe residents of Vi at Bentley Village have formed the Bentley Village Foundation Inc., a Florida not-for-profit organization with the mission to enrich the lives of Bentley Village residents, employees and others within Collier County and Southwest Florida and to enhance their cultural, intellectual, emotional and/or physical well-being through philanthropic programs and educational scholarships. Many of the staff members with whom we interact every day at Vi at Bentley Village work multiple jobs to finance their higher education, resident Diane Halas, who spearheaded the foundations formation, said. We value their efforts and we feel this foundation will provide us a vehicle through which we can demonstrate our appreciation in a practical way. The foundation also will allow residents to reach beyond the gates of Bentley Village and fulfill needs in the local area, she added. In partnership with the Community Foundation of Collier County, the new foundation has begun work to establish endowments and to acquire the necessary funding to offer educational scholarships to the workforce of Vi at Bentley Village. The goal is to fund the first student scholarship by the fall 2016. In addition to Ms. Halas as president, the foundations charter board of trustees consists of Karen Rosenstein, secretary; Diane McNulty, treasurer; and trustees Dr. Horace Bud Bernton, Jeannette Boucher, Janys Foley, Harlan Parrish, Gene Blanchard, Dr. Ira Dash and Murray Hendel. Although the foundation will be funded primarily through donations by residents of Vi at Bentley Village, it does not impose limitations on contributions. The group has begun work to establish a website and other marketing materials to promote its efforts. In the meantime, anyone who is interested in making a donation or learning more about the foundation can contact Ms. Halas by calling 592-9969 or emailing Hope Chest resale shop celebrates first anniversaryShoppers can enjoy popcorn and complimentary blood pressure screenings when Hope Chest in Bonita Springs celebrates its first anniversary from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 5.

Just the idea of having to change his number makes him nuts. People have cell phones from all over the country. You have a 913 or 212 New York City number. Im 239. I would never change. I still use AOL like Im a putz. If there are people behind my back, laughing, because they say I still have a 239 number or I use AOL well I live in a world of constant change. Theres no need to make this change. Its unnecessary. It turns out, Mud isnt the only person whose buttons g et pushed when you talk area codes. When the North American Numbering Plan was first cooked up by Bell Labs in the 1940s, all of Florida was the 305. Today, that legacy code belongs to the Miami area. With the emergence of cell phones and Internet VOIP phone lines, area codes may be less significant as a means of determining ones physical location. But they often tell a story about where somebody has been a place where a heart still lingers long after a landline has been disconnected. From the 941 to the 561 and points above and below, people hold on to their cherished digits for various reasons. Four-forty. Its the west side of Cleveland, Ohio. Ive had this number since high school. I feel that in some ways its part of my identity, says Jennifer Trammell, director at NewsBank in Naples. Chris Wadsworth, a former reporter and managing editor at NBC2, moved from the 239 to the 703 suburbs of Washington, D.C., area six years ago. He kept his Florida number. Initially, it was for convenience. All our friends and family had a 239 number, he says. But over the years its become almost like a souvenir, like keeping a picture in my pocket We hope to get back down there some day, maybe for retirement, and keep the number all the way throughout. Other people are less sentimental, but no less calculated in their attachment to their numbers. I returned to Florida and the question came up, do I change my number? says Richmond Schmidt, a professional butler based in West Palm Beach. He spent three years in New York City, where he received the tony 917 area code that encompasses Fifth Avenue, where he worked. When he returned to Florida, he kept the number. I did not keep it as a status symbol, but I know some people who have done that. Its not a vanity code for me. Rather, Mr. Schmidt was being practical, keeping the number to maintain business and personal connections, but also, as a courtesy. People would change their numbers as a convenience to friends and acquaintances in their area so that they wouldnt have to pay long distance bills, he says of the time eight years ago, when cell phones were taking hold but more people remained tethered to their land lines. But thats obsolete. Even from home, people are using cell phones. Its more of a convenience now not to change. The numbers bear out Mr. Schmidts logic. According to the National Health Institute Survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control, two in five households, or 44 percent, rely only on cell phone service. More than half of American children live in a home without a landline but with cellular service. AREA CODESFrom page 1WADSWORTH SCHMIDT TRAMMELL

But now, excessive amounts can be found in our everyday foods and beverages, and its taking a toll, according to recently published studies. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center exposed high-sugar diets as major risks for cancer, especially breast cancer. The Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience journal indicates that sugar may cause not only diabetes and obesity, but also brain defects similar to those triggered by stress or abuse. Sugar accounts for much of our countrys weight gain and the rise of fatty liver disease. We already knew it was very bad for us, but alarming new evidence just keeps pouring in, says nutritionist Cherie Calbom, who is known as The Juice Lady. Despite the case against excessive sugar intake, Ms. Calbom says, its p revalent use remains in things like ketchup, yogurt, canned soup, salad dressing, tomato sauce, bread, granola bars not to mention soda and dessertstyle coffee beverages. Thats why she suggests taking full control of the sugar in your diet by making your own meals, snacks and drinks. Her most recent book, The Juice Ladys Sugar Knockout, offers recipes for overcoming sugar. Here is the formula for a juice Ms. Calbom recommends to help curb your craving for carbs, followed by some alternative takes on some very traditional desserts for those times when you simply must acknowledge and assuage your sweet tooth. These recipes let you know that, once you decide to live without sugar, its deliciously possible, she promises. Jerusalem Artichoke Juice Cocktail 3-4 carrots 2 celery ribs 1 Jerusalem artichoke 1 cucumber (peeled if not organic) 1 lemon (peeled if not organic) green apple Wash produce first and, once juiced, drink as soon as possible. Knockout Chocolate Mousse 1 medium avocado, ripe 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder 2 Tbsp. coconut nectar (or tsp. stevia) 6 Tbsp. almond milk Optional: pistachios, strawberries, raspberries or goji berries Put large chunks of avocado flesh in the blender. Add the cocoa, sweetener and almond milk. Blend, starting on low and then moving to high speed until smooth. If the avocado is larger, you will need a bit more of each ingredient. If the mixture is too thick, drizzle in a bit more almond milk. Add more cocoa or sweetener to taste. Refrigerate the mousse and serve cold, topped with nuts or berries if desired. Beet Brownies cup mashed silken tofu, medium firmness cup beet juice, vegan milk or water cup maples syrup or coconut nectar cup coconut oil 1 tsp. vanilla cup garbanzo flour cup cocoa powder 1 tsp. baking powder cup beet pulp or finely grated beets cup unsweetened chocolate chips cup chopped nuts or cacao nibs Combine tofu, beet juice (or other liquid), maple syrup or coconut nectar, coconut oil and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, and baking powder. Mix well. Add beet pulp or grated beets, and mix to distribute evenly throughout the flour. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Add blended mixture to flour mixture. Mix well to combine ingredients and form a batter. Transfer the batter into an 8-inch-by8-inch baking pan that has been generously oiled and floured. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Let cool in pan before slicing and removing.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 3-9, 2016 A29SWEETFrom page 28 PATRICK M. FLAHARTY, MDTrust Your Face To Experience (239.415.7576Naples location!NEW NOW WELCOMING NEW PATIENTS Handful of almonds each day improves health, study shows UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAJust add a handful of almonds: a University of Florida study suggests that improving ones diet can be as simple as that. Researchers studied the effect that the addition of almonds can have on a persons diet quality, based on data collected from 28 parent-child pairs living in north central Florida. The parents were instructed to eat 1.5 ounces of whole almonds each day during the three-week intervention portion of the research period, and the children were encouraged to eat half an ounce of whole almonds or an equivalent amount of almond b utter each day. Although only one parent and one childs habits were analyzed in the study, which was published in the Journal of Nutrition Research, the researchers encouraged the whole family to participate and provided enough almonds and almond butter for everyone in the family to eat. At the beginning of the 14-week research period the research subjects average Healthy Eating Index scores were 53.7 1.8 for the parents and 53.7 2.6 for the children. The Healthy Eating Index is a measure of diet quality that assesses conformance to the USDAs Dietary Guidelines for Americans. A score below 51 is reflective of a poor diet, a score between 51 and 80 reflects a need for improvement and a score greater than 80 indicates a good diet. After the almond intervention, the average Healthy Eating Index score for parents and children increased, with parents average increasing to 61.4 1.4 and childrens average increasing to 61.4 2.2. They increased their Healthy Eating Index component scores for total protein foods and decreased the intake of empty calories. The researchers believe the parents and children were replacing salty and processed snacks with almonds, said Alyssa Burns, a doctoral student in the UF/IFAS food science and human nutrition department who conducted the study. Over the past 20 years, per-capita consumption of nuts and seeds has decreased in children 3 to 6 years old, while the consumption of savory snacks like chips and pretzels increased. Researchers were interested in studying the addition of almonds into 3to 6-year-old childrens diets, because encouraging healthy eating habits during early childhood can have numerous lifelong benefits. The habits you have when you are younger are carried into adulthood, so if a parent is able to incorporate almonds or different healthy snacks into a childs diet, its more likely that the child will choose those snacks later on in life, Ms. Burns said. They were also interested in learning how easy or difficult it is to incorporate almonds into the diets of preschool-aged children an age when food preferences are developed. Some of the challenges that we saw were that the kids were getting bored with the almonds, or they didnt like the taste of the almonds or the almond butter, Ms. Burns said. To counter that, she said they came up with creative ways for the parents to incorporate the almonds into their childrens diets for instance, adding them to familiar foods like oatmeal, smoothies or sandwiches. The studys results suggest whole food approaches, like adding almonds to ones diet, may be an achievable way to improve overall public health. Adding a variety of fruits, vegetables and nuts to your diet can improve your overall diet quality, Ms. Burns said.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickThe No. 1 complaint of pet owners is shedding, sometimes aptly referred to as blowing coat. And while you can reduce the risk of a fur-nado with regular brushing and some other basic strategies, theres no magic solution to put an end to the hair flying around your home as dogs start to shed their winter coats and new hair comes in. The dirty little secret about dogs is that they all shed, but some share more falling fur than others. Double-coated dogs such as Alaskan malamutes, chow chows, Shetland sheepdogs and Siberian huskies are the most obvious shedders. Other breeds that can leave your furniture and clothing coated with hair include German shepherds (commonly nicknamed German shedders), Labrador retrievers, beagles and pugs. One of the interesting facts about canine hair loss is that shedding is affected by the type, intensity and duration of light exposure. As the days grow warmer and longer, dogs doff their heavy winter coats and replace them with a lightweight summer version. Depending on the individual dog, shedding season can last for up to two months. Dogs who spend most of their time indoors are still influenced by the natural light that comes in through windows, but they typically shed small amounts year-round rather than having a seasonal heavy shed. Since these are usually small breeds, they normally wouldnt shed as much fur as a larger dog anyway. Hormones also affect the amount of hair dogs shed. Females who arent spayed usually shed twice a year, at the same time theyre in heat. Spayed females dont have that periodic surge of hormones, so they develop a full coat that sheds year-round. First-time owners of thick-coated dogs may think their pet has a skin condition when his fur starts coming out in big clumps. Unless he has actual bald spots, though, this is normal. The shedding process is a healthy, natural cycle, but we know that sometimes it can have you pulling out your own hair. Weve gathered some tips to help you keep shedding under control, or at least manageable, until Mother Nature delivers your dogs new coat. Brush your dog every day with a rubber curry brush or nubby shedding glove. That allows you to get loose hair out at the time and place of your choosing, preferably outside or in your garage. For a dog with a double coat, purchase an effective undercoat rake and use it regularly to thin the winter coat. This allows air to circulate and helps to prevent skin issues and mats, says groomer Barbara Cole Miller of San Juan Capistrano, California. Using a slicker brush, start with the hind feet and work your way up to the front of the dog, recommends groomer Julie Ellingson of Sacramento, Calif. Be sure you go all the way through the fur, but be careful not to dig into the skin. Use a metal comb to check for tangles as you go. A warm bath followed by a thorough blow dry can help to loosen outgoing fur. Brush out as much hair as possible while the wet coat still has shampoo in it. Fur will come out more easily when its lubricated with shampoo, Ms. Ellingson says. Outsource defuzzing to a professional groomer. He or she has the skill and tools to accelerate removal of the winter accumulation of undercoat. A high-powered professional dryer wielded by an experienced groomer will loosen and release undercoat more easily and quickly than you can at home. If all else fails, put a bodysuit or T-shirt on your dog to help contain the hair, stock up on sticky-tape rollers and remember that it probably wont last more than a few weeks.

THE DIVA DIARIESYou say tomato, and I say pass the wine, pleaseIt must be that time of year because I start to get a little prickly as we approach the end of snowbird/tourist season. Now, before any of my Midwestern neighbors start tapping out any angry emails, know that I truly appreciate our visitors from the chillier climates and I am grateful that they keep our Olive Gardens and Red Lobsters in business. Yes, the traffic is painful, but without tourists, our outlet malls would surely become ghost towns. And maybe navigating the Southwest Florida roads during high season is good for not only keeping our reflexes keen, but also keeping our heart rates up. So, Im not bashing our lovely guests. Its just that when folks who arent from around these parts butcher the pronunciations of some of our towns, or misspell them, I feel compelled to correct them. Even if they are strangers. Recently, I was in Publix waiting to buy my box of wine (I seem to drink more during season; its a medicinal thing) when the gray-haired lady in front of me wearing turquoise Capri pants and Crocs asked the cashier how far away BONE-ita Springs was. Before the cashier could even open her mouth, I chimed in, Its only about 20 minutes away and just to be helpful, its pronounced BUN-ita. Thats odd, she said. Are you sure? Am I sure? Ive lived here since I was a very wee diva and attended Bonita Springs Middle School. Of course, Im sure. But I didnt say that. I just smiled politely and nodded (I smile politely often during season; thats where the medicinal Pinot Grigio comes in). I received my own schooling in regional pronunciation the first time my husband took me to visit his home state of Tennessee. When I called Knoxville, the town where he grew up, KnoxVILLE, he corrected me. No, darlin, he said. Thats not how we say it. Its KNOX-vull. I also learned that a neighboring town to the south was not MaryVILLE. According to Todd, it was MUR-vull. Down here, we have the visitors who enunciate Punta Gorda, so that it comes out all wrong: POONTah Gorda. Drop the T and the poo, please its simply Punnah Gorda. Boca Grande is not Boca Grahnd-day, its just Boca Grand and Matlacha is not too confusing its simply Mattluh-shay. The worst offense however, is when our little corner of the state makes national news (which is rarely for anything good, unfortunately) and the reporters spell Fort Myers as Fort Meyers. The hairs stand up on my arms when that happens. And just as a general note, yall, down here a sweet carbonated beverage is not pop, its soda. Thank you and please enjoy the remainder of your stay (Im smiling politely). Ciao for now, my lovelies!

The Seasons: Spring by James Thomson Alarmingly, for Floridians and Americans as a whole, the dream of retirement is becoming less likely to happen. Retirement savings continue to decline, and most households fall short of recommended savings targets that will allow retirees to maintain their standard of living once theyve stopped working. A new program called myRA is trying to do its part to reverse that trend and help put people who otherwise wouldnt be saving for retirement on the path to freedom and relaxation in their golden years.

MONEY & INVESTINGInvesting in emerging markets has risk, but upside worth itChildren are expensive, frustrating, time consuming, and carry almost every pathogen known to man, which they are happy to pass along to you. But the joy of watching your kids grow into adulthood somehow makes it all worthwhile. I often find myself wondering what my boys will be like in 10 years or even 20 years. It makes me smile just imagining the possibilities. In investing, countries that have not quite developed into true mature and developed economies are known as emerging market countries. In the past week, there has been a lot of debate about buying stocks in these countries. One prominent research report even called investing in emerging markets today quite possibly the trade of the decade. So what are emerging markets investments and what are the potential benefits and risks in putting money in these areas?A more precise definition of emerging market countries are those nations that share some characteristics of more economically developed countries but still lack in some areas. Examples of emerging market countries include Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Korea and Mexico. Directly buying individual stocks and bonds in these countries companies is often difficult and sometimes even prohibited by governments, so investors gain exposure to these countries through either mutual funds or Exchange Traded Funds. An example of this is the IShares Emerging Market ETF, ticker EEM. This is a very large Index ETF that holds stocks in companies like Samsung, China Construction Bank and Taiwan Semiconductor. So why is emerging market investing getting a lot of attention? The primary reason is that many of these countries stock prices have been beaten down as of late, and several prominent analysts now believe that they are ready for a dramatic rebound. The Chinese stock market problems are often in the news because the market is so large, but other emerging markets have also been sharply lower in recent months. The cause of these downturns is mainly a dramatic slowdown in economic growth. Countries like China, Mexico and South Korea all rely on exports to drive their economies and they did well when the U.S. and Western Europe were consuming their products. But now that many of the developed countries are no longer growing, many emerging market countries have too much capacity and too few customers. The big question now is whether cheap emerging market valuations are a true value or a value trap? On one hand, emerging market valuations are now trading at an almost 30 percent discount to developed stock prices and only at 10 times prices to earnings multiple. In fact, emerging markets have only been this cheap six times in history and in each of the previous instances, emerging markets have rallied dramatically. So by looking at valuations, both absolute and compared to developed countries, an investment in emerging markets looks like a good bet. In addition, many analysts believe that some developing countries like the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia are still experiencing tremendous growth and have significant upside potential buy are still incorrectly being penalized by Chinas weakness. But there is a lot of risk in putting money in less developed countries. For one, there is risk that exports from emerging markets will fall further and their economies will experience further negative growth. Exports from China and South Korea fell by double digits in January. In addition, many emerging market companies have borrowed heavily to fund their growth and without a growing economy, some could default. If this occurs, even liquid companies in these countries will be hurt as investment dollars flee the country. And finally, the unpredictability of emerging market governments, especially in times of recession, makes investing in these countries especially risky. One never knows what rules or regulations these states will impose at the expense of outside investors. So are emerging markets a good investment? I am a believer in both diversification and value plays, so I think a part of any portfolio should contain emerging market stocks and bonds. But it is definitely not for someone with a short investing timeframe nor for a conservative investor. And it should make up a relatively small portion of a portfolio, in my opinion. But there may be some significant upside here and I am willing to take the chance.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 3-9, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY (800) 246-1129 www.bluecapitalcleaning.comOf ce Cleanings | Construction Cleanup | Floor Care ber and describes it as a starter retirement savings account for people without access to a retirement savings plan at work. The myRA program provides a very easy sign-up procedure to establish an account. Visitors to the myRA website only need their Social Security number and an ID, like a drivers license. New account holders determine how much they want to contribute. They can decide to put in just a couple of bucks a month. They can have the money taken directly out of their paychecks or from a bank account. There are no minimum investment fees and there are no penalties for taking out the money you put in. The money is invested in a U.S. Treasury Bond fund, earning a modest albeit reliable return. The fund earned 2.3 percent in 2014 and earned an average annual return of 3.19 percent over the 10-year period ending December 2014. Members of underserved communities, employees of small businesses and people who work part time can begin saving with myRA to lay the foundation for retirement, said myRA Executive Director Richard Ludlow. Setting up a myRA account is free, and contributing even a small amount each paycheck is an important first step to financial security in the future.The looming crisisFlorida businesses fall short of the national average when it comes to providing retirement benefits to their employees. Nationally, an average of 66 percent of private businesses provide retirement benefits, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In Florida, the number is about 46 percent. That leaves more than half of the states workers on their own when it comes to figuring out how to save for retirement. Its one indicator of a looming retirement savings crisis. Its estimated that the collective savings gap among working households throughout the country is somewhere between $7 trillion to $14 trillion. Most households fall short of recommended savings targets that will allow retirees to maintain their standard of living after theyve retired. To maintain its standard of living in retirement, the typical working American household needs to replace roughly 85 percent of pre-retirement income, according to the National Institute on Retirement. Steve Zakarias and Erica Carroll, who we found while taking their 1-year-old baby Owen for a stroll in a Cape Coral park, are a rarity. At 28 and 30, respectively, the young couple is socking away money in an employer-provided 401k plan. Theyve got a five to 10 year financial plan, too. At their relatively young ages, they have the long game in their sights. Its scary, because Social Security isnt going to be a great plan when I get older, says Ms. Carroll. A few miles away, Keith Holquist, a 27-year-old graveyard shift warehouse worker, takes advantage of the afternoon lull at the market. He loads plastic bags filled with bread, meat and other basics into the trunk. He recently moved to Florida from Maryland for a fresh start, he says. He doesnt have any savings. Ive just been trying to work and make money. Its getting harder to retire, he says. If I have an extra $100, thats still gas and tolls. If Im lucky I might have a couple of bucks left over. Mr. Holquists employer doesnt offer retirement benefits. While hes the perfect candidate for the myRA program, he says he wont participate in the federal program. I dont trust em. Id be a fool too. Id rather hold on to my money. Save early, save oftenFinancial planners for their part say theyre confident in the security of the government investment. Theyre just not sure its the best idea for even novice investors. I like the concept of trying to at least get people in the habit of savings.It (myRA) is an interest-bearing account that is extremely conservative, so it has some risk although no equity exposure, says Scott Schatzle, owner/president of Mutual Trust Advisory Group in Fort Myers. The risk, as he explains it, is in putting money away without getting a good enough rate of return on it. The myRA fund earned 2.3 percent in 2014 and earned an average annual return of 3.19 percent over the 10-year period ending December 2014. At those kinds of rates, the money and the interest it earns barely keeps up with inflation.Anybody who has money in retirement, the goal is to have a return two times the inflation rate. It would be very difficult for someone to live on a 2 percent return I think it comes down to, whats the goal for that money? Once weve identified that theres a bucket of money for retirement, and we want to try to grow it. The worst thing you could do is take that money and grow it at 1 or 2 percent, said Mr. Schatzle. While myRA is trying to make signup simple, many private online services like Scottrade, Ameritrade or Etrade also provide alternatives for people who want to start saving. Although the sites might require a few more steps, they do offer IRA investment accounts. Many of the funds they offer dont charge transaction fees. However, novices might be a little put off by having to put some thought into which fund to buy. The myRA program eliminates this layer by offering solely the U.S. Treasury Bond. Whatever its plus or minuses, the myRA program aims to have people start getting into the habit of savings. Eventually, participants are expected to transfer their myRA funds into a higher-yielding plans. But in the meantime, novice investors should get in the habit of tracking the fundamentals when it comes to their money. Everybody needs to start with a budget and they need to track their cash flow, said Mr. Schatzle. See if you have discretionary income. Then you have to have the behavior to set aside those funds. Creating a mechanism that will keep you saving month after month is key. If youre not saving money, theres no investment thats going to get you where you need to be for retirement, said Brian Simon, a financial advisor for Alliance Financial Group in Fort Myers. The good thing about a 401(k) at work is its systematic. You get used to getting it taken out so you dont miss it. But you can still save on your own systematically. Whether you do it in an IRA, an investment account or a savings account. If you have it auto-deducted, it will actually happen. RETIREFrom page 1SCHATZLE SIMON

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Single and Childless? You May Still Need Life InsuranceYou might think that if youre single with no children, you dont need life insurance. You might be wrong, though. First, remember that life insurance is meant to protect those who depend on your income when youre no longer able to provide for them yourself. It comes in two primary forms: whole and term. Whole life insurance is part insurance and part investment, but for many people its not the best choice for either. Term insurance is generally better, covering you for whatever period you need it to. For example, someone might buy a 20-year policy to cover them until their kids are on their own. Even if you have no children and are supporting no dependents in your home, there might still be loved ones you support or may want to. For example, if you have young nieces or nephews, and youre planning to contribute to their educational expenses one day, you may want to ensure that such funding is available for them in case youre not around when they need it. Similarly, you can make money available to help support your parents if you die prematurely. Think, too, of any loved ones who are currently helping you for example, by co-signing loans. If youre paying off hefty student loans that your parents have cosigned for, then theyre on the hook for a lot of repayments if you die young. A life insurance policy can protect anyone who would suffer financially if you die. It can also help pay off your mortgage and help keep a business you own running until its future is determined. Meanwhile, death can be costly, too. Getting at least a small life insurance policy can pay for a funeral and other expenses. With interest rates currently very low, insurance costs less than usual. If marriage or parenthood is looming, you might lock in good rates now. Finally, dont assume that you wont die anytime soon because youre young. Terrible things happen dont leave your family in the lurch. Life insurance isnt pleasant to consider, but many of us need it. Dead BatteryI fell for the old pump-and-dump scheme on a penny stock. I read unreasonably positive reviews of a hightech battery company many years ago. I bought near the bottom price and accumulated 5 million shares purchased mostly for a fraction of a penny each. Once I recover my investment, I am out of it. Yes, I fantasize about the stock moving up to $0.50 per share, which would bring me $2.5 million it has been to that price and much higher in the past. Yes, I should move the money to a legitimate stock and I may end up doing that, but I am a bit of a gambler deep down, so I probably will hold on to it and keep an eye on it. I stare at this investment every day in my portfolio to remind myself how dumb I have been. Probably the dumbest part of it is that Im still invested in it! My 5 million shares were recently worth a total of $2,000. B.H., Airmont, New YorkThe Fool Responds: Danger, danger! You stand a very good chance of losing whatever is left in this investment. Youre right that youre really gambling here, not investing. The company is not generating sales and profits, but is burning through cash and selling more and more shares to stay afloat diluting the value of shares held by people like you. Its time to sell. Get Your Kicks and ProfitsWarren Buffetts company, Berkshire Hathaway, bought $1 billion worth of stock in Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) in the past few months, and he now owns about 14 percent of the company. You might want to consider it for your portfolio, too. Phillips 66, the largest refiner in the U.S. by market share and with a market value recently near $40 billion, is the result of ConocoPhillips spinning off its oil refining business back in 2012. Why would a midstream and refining giant be appealing in our current environment of low oil prices? Well, because while oil drillers and producers are suffering, refiners are enjoying low feedstock prices and solid gasoline demand that keeps them profitable. Phillips is also investing in future growth, building more pipelines, expanding its storage capacity and constructing a new export terminal in Texas. Demand for natural gas and products made from it (such as fertilizer, rubbers, plastics and synthetic fabrics) is growing faster than demand for refined products, so Phillips 66s investments in natural gas pipelines, gathering and processing, along with petrochemical manufacturing, bode well. Phillips 66s coffers hold nearly $5 billion in cash, and the stock recently yielded 2.9 percent, with that payout having increased by about 80 percent over the past three years. Its a cyclical stock, so expect volatility as well as significant dividend income and likely long-term growth. I began some 30-plus years ago as a small telecommunications company in England. Today Im a global leader in mobile telecom, with more than 440 million customers and operations in more than 25 countries. I enabled the worlds first international mobile roaming call in 1991 and offered Internet access on the move in 2002. My moneytransfer program is allowing customers in emerging markets to send and receive money via their mobile phones. I used to own 45 percent of Verizon Wireless. In 2014, I transmitted 290 billion text, picture and video messages and 1.2 trillion minutes of calls. Who am I? (Answer: Vodafone) Time to Buy?QIs this a good time to buy stocks, with the market having dropped? N.P., Tucson, ArizonaAIt sure is. Smart investors buy when prices are low, even though many others may be panicking. A struggling economy can offer more stock bargains than one firing on all cylinders because many stocks get bid up beyond their intrinsic worth during bull markets, while falling below their intrinsic value in bear markets. Just remember that not all stocks are equally promising. Get to know very well any company youre considering investing in, since youll essentially be buying a piece of it and its future. Study its annual and quarterly reports, evaluating its debt load, profit margins, free cash flow and growth rates. Superinvestor Warren Buffett considers the following questions when evaluating stocks: (1) Can I understand the company? (2) Does it have sustainable competitive advantages? (3) Is the management exceptional? (4) Is the price attractive? Theres rarely a wrong time to buy stocks. You just have to find healthy, growing companies trading at compelling prices. ***QWhat does rebalancing a portfolio involve? M.D., Newark, New JerseyAHeres a simple example: Imagine that three years ago you invested half your nest egg in stocks and half in bonds. If you want to keep that balance, but your stocks have grown to become 65 percent of your portfolio, you might sell some stocks and add to your bond holdings.Rebalancing means adjusting the percentage of your portfolio represented by various kinds of assets (such as stocks, bonds, cash, etc.) by reallocating your money. Dont overdo it, though. If your portfolio changes from 50 percent stocks to 52 percent, thats not yet worth incurring trading costs. Want more information about stocks?

The couple will share some of the stories they uncovered about the history of Naples most iconic beach homes. A reception and book signing hosted by MP Interiors will follow the presentation. The event is free and open to the public. Newcomers to the Naples area often wonder about the beachfront homes along Gulf Shore Boulevard and Gordon Drive that range from modest singlestory cottages built decades ago, to modern multi-story mansions towering high above the sand. Each one looks out over the beach to the sparkling Gulf of Mexico, and each property has a story to tell. Curious themselves, the Lehers spent three years talking with homeowners past and present and gathering their stories about living on the beach. Enhanced by the original artwork of Naples artist Paul Arsenault and highlighted with current and vintage photography, their book offers an overview of beachfront homes and homeowners whose legacies live on in the lore of Naples. Normally retailed for $65, the book will be offered for sale at the Miromar Design Center event for $50, with net proceeds going to the Naples Historical Society. Because seating is limited, reservations are required. Sign up at or call 390-8203 for more information. o,tomodern

Closed sales of single-family homes statewide totaled 16,529, up 2.7 percent over the January 2015 figure. Floridas housing market remains on a steady path, said Florida Realtors President Matey Veissi, broker and coowner of Veissi & Associates in Miami. While inventory levels are tight, the months supply of homes for sale remains stable and distressed property sales continue to fall, Ms. Veissi adds. The current market offers a great opportunity for sellers, who are getting nearly 94 percent (for existing single-family homes) of their asking price at the closing table; existing townhouse-condo sellers are getting more than 93 percent of their asking price. And while mortgage rates are inching higher, they remain historically low, which gives consumers more buying power. The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes in January was $199,000, up 13.7 percent from the Luxury models open at LaMorada Naples Three single-family model homes are open for viewing in WCI Communities LaMorada Naples, a new community planned for 343 residences with views of lakes and nature preserves and amenities and a clubhouse on scale with a much larger country club community.

Call Diane Cox 239-986-9139 $219,000 OPEN HOUSE MARCH 6TH 1-4PMprevious year, according to data from Florida Realtors Industry Data and Analysis department in partnership with local Realtor boards/associations. The statewide median price for townhouse-condo properties in January was $152,000, up 10.9 percent over the year-ago figure. January marked the 50th month in a row that statewide median sales prices for both single-family homes and for townhouse-condo properties rose yearover-year. The median is the midpoint; half the homes sold for more, half for less. According to the National Association of Realtors, the national median sales price for existing single-family homes in December 2015 was $226,000, up 8 percent from the previous year; the national median existing condo price was $209,900. In California, the statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes in December was $489,310; in Massachusetts, it was $345,000; in Maryland, it was $260,453; and in New York, it was $240,760. Looking at Floridas townhouse-condo market, statewide closed sales totaled 6,942 last month, down 4.8 percent compared to January 2015. However, the closed sales data reflected fewer short sales and cash-only sales in January: Traditional sales in Florida rose 21 percent for single-family homes and 7.1 percent for condo-townhouse properties. Closed sales typically occur 30 to 90 days after sales contracts are written. Overall, statewide sales growth remained slow in January, but its important to note that this trend has not been uniform across all price points, said Florida Realtors Chief Economist Brad OConnor. Taking a closer look at the data, what we are seeing are large yearover-year declines in properties selling for less than $150,000. Sales in this price range, which comprised over a third of Januarys total sales, were down by nearly 17 percent compared to January 2015. Sales of homes in price tiers of $150,000 or more, on the other hand, were actually up over 14 percent, yearover-year. An overall rise in home values is partly responsible for these contrasting trends, but the real culprit is a lack of inventory in lower price tiers that has resulted from high rates of investor activity and conversions into rentals. Inventory was at a 4.5-months supply in January for single-family homes and at a 5.9-months supply for townhousecondo properties, according to Florida Realtors. According to Freddie Mac, the interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.87 percent in January 2016, up from the 3.67 perc ent average recorded during the same month a year earlier.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 3-9, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSMalicious murder makes for most delicious reading Murder Most Malicious by Alyssa Maxwell. Kensington Books. 304 pages. Hardcover, $25. Coral Springs writer Alyssa Maxwell begins a new series with this title. Judging from what it has to offer, I predict the Lady and Ladys Maid Mysteries series will be as well received as the authors Gilded Newport Mysteries. Readers now find themselves in England on a grand estate shortly after the end of World War I. The western world has undergone significant change in the early decades of the 20th century, but relationships between aristocrats and their servants as well as relationships among those in the dizzying hierarchy of below-stairs staff, with all its petty distinctions are changing quite slowly. Though rank has its privileges, true character good or bad peeks through the lines of social class. So it is that 19-year-old Phoebe Renshaw (Lady Phoebe) and her somewhat older maid Eva Huntford enjoy a friendship that breaks through the restrictions of class while allowing those restrictions a modicum of respect. It is a transformation in process, the women feeling their way. Another transformation is the post-war rebuilding of a nation severely damaged by war, both materially and psychologically. It all begins on Christmas at Foxwood Hall. There are many guests at the imposing mansion, most of them anticipating the engagement announcement of Phoebes older sister, Julia, to Henry Leighton, Marquis of Allerton. Certainly his mother, Lady Allerton, expects such an announcement. Members of the Allerton clan and others are gathered for the holiday and the engagement, but Phoebe overhears an argument between Julia and Henry that clearly suggests there will be no such thing. Each is threatening the other. Henry vanishes. And then strange gifts come into the hands of several people each accompanied by a finger from Henrys hand. Murder? Motive? Culprit? Not satisfied that the professionals, Inspector Perkins and Constable Brannock, are up to the task, Phoebe enlists her Eva in a dangerous sleuthing adventure. The pros just cant be right in suspecting a longtime employee, footman George Vernon. Given the many rooms and outbuildings at Foxwood Hall, readers get to enjoy abundant scenes of whispered conversations, surprise encounters and attempts to spy. Possible suspects come into focus and then fade from serious attention. Much of the investigatory work centers on finding the cutting implement used to sever Henrys fingers from his hand. The weapon should point back to its wielder. Again, there are many candidates, with the possibilities closely evaluated and sifted. Of note are footprints that run from the mansion to a property demarcation and then back again. Who was in transit? Which was the first part of the circuit: away from or toward the mansion? Are the prints from the same walker? Is Henry captured, his wounds abated, or are his remains hidden somewhere on the estate? Possible hiding places are theorized. Once the mansion is explored many times over, it seems that an outbuilding is more likely, especially one not in constant or frequent use. Who would have access to these buildings? Who would know their secrets? Who has spent enough time at Foxwood above or below stairs, or around the outbuildings to choose an effective hiding place for Henrys corpse? Such are the reasoning processes that lead the professionals and our courageous amateurs into action. Reading personalities, motives and access comprise a related line of inquiry, and the author handles it with care and cunning, mostly through conversations between Phoebe and Eva. Briefly, even Lady Julia falls under suspicion. The authentic feel that Ms. Maxwells fiction conveys has much to do with establishing the material culture of time and place. The architecture and ornamentation of the building, the modes of dress, the fabrics, the meals, the methods of heating and illumination, even the motor vehicles of the time all contribute to a sense of historical accuracy. Murder Most Malicious is also a splendid family drama, bringing into play Lord and Lady Wroxly, Phoebes grandparents, whose estate she lives on; Phoebes younger siblings, Lady Amelia and Viscount Foxwood (Fox); other relatives; the extended family of the myriad servants; and the several holiday visitors. Ms. Maxwell fills the readers imagination with the hustle and bustle of a home that is a sizeable community in itself. Vicariously living in this world is an experience that rivals and complements the suspense of the suspected murder plot and the dangers that threaten Phoebe and Eva. All in all, it makes for a delightfully engaging package.

feeding ourselves. Wed resort to either a throw-together dinner of salmon on the grill with roasted veggies and fruit or, more often, wed head out to eat. The result was that we ate out three or four times a week not counting the restaurant reviews I do for Florida Weekly. Even when going to relatively inexpensive places Thai, Chinese, neighborhood Italian the expense quickly adds up. When I stopped to figure out what we were spending, I was horrified: upwards of $200 a week on dinners out, not to mention what we threw away in the form of food that went bad in the refrigerator. Then my stepdaughter, who lives in Boston and juggles a high-pressure job and single motherhood, told me she had started using Blue Apron, a subscription meal plan service, and she really liked it. I was dubious. Id tried another one Plated about a year ago and had been disappointed by the results. But she sent me an invitation to try Blue Apron, and so for a discounted price I think the first one was $20 I received our first three meals. The box was delivered to our door filled with a bounty of fresh vegetables and some fresh fish that was carefully tucked between packs of dry ice. There were large, full-color recipe cards, too, with pictures of what we were going to eat: cod and potato brandade with watermelon relish salad and garlic toasts; b utternu t squash and Gouda casserole with rigatoni, Brussels sprouts and chestnut breadcrumbs; and creamy lemon linguini with caramelized onion, chard and walnuts. It felt like Christmas. I could hardly wait to start cooking.Costly but convenientSubscription meal boxes have become popular among working folks who have more money than time and energy. They cut down on the amount of time you spend shopping and digging up recipes. Instead, all you have to do is open your box, pull out the ingredients, choose a recipe and get started. They arent inexpensive. Most of the plans run $10-$15 per person per meal. Two of the most popular Blue Apron and Hello Fresh, the ones Ive been testing over the past couple of months run about $9-$10 per meal per person. Compare that with what the USDA estimates to be the cost of most home-prepared meals somewhere between $1.80 and $3.60 per person per meal (that seems to be the extreme low end) and its clear that these arent meant to be money savers. But depending on your dining habits, they might actually save you money. And there are a number of other advantages as well. Arlene Knox of Fort Myers has a demanding job in Naples and two teenaged daughters, resulting in a hectic, fast-paced life, particularly during the winter season. So she started ordering Blue Apron. I absolutely love it, Ms. Knox says. I love to cook, and its relaxing for me, but during season is our busiest time. Im often working weekends, and then there are the kids and all their activities. For me to make this type of meal takes a level of planning I just dont have the time for right now. In the summer, she adds, she has more time to spend cooking. But right now, this is brilliant. Its worth the money. Were not wasting food. We are eating everything. Its just enough. The kids like it, and were getting to try new stuff. Its wonderful. She says that before Blue Apron, she frequently found herself headed to the supermarket after work. I can go to the grocery store and blow 60 bucks and still not have three meals prepared. Sometimes its too much for me to think about. Although the meals run about $10 each per person, Im saving money because I only buy the staple stuff when I go to the store. And Im not going to the store every other day. Its a lot of food. Its often dinner with some left over for lunch. When the three of us are home, its enough for all of us. (That drops the price to less than $7 per person.) Ms. Knox has selected the omnivore version for her family; you can also pick one with fish and vegetarian options or just vegetarian dishes. Last weekend, she was making chicken cutlets and was planning pork chops for the following night. Michael McNally and Beth Drouin have been receiving the fish and vegetable box once a month for about four months now and have been enjoying them. Because Ms. Drouin isnt a big fan of butternut squash, she substitutes another dish via their online account when she sees that coming up on the menu, an option she likes. In general, the couple has enjoyed the dishes they have tried, especially some of the unusual combinations such as the warm grain salad made with farro, radishes, beet, avocado, orange, tarragon, walnuts and gorgonzola cheese. At first, they say, the process felt somewhat labor intensive, but then they learned to conquer and divide. Initially, it was a whole lot more trouble than I expected, says Mr. McNally. But weve gotten better at it. We dont need to read each recipe three times anymore. Now one of us does the prep and the other picks it up from there. Theres very little waste, and with a lot of the dishes, theres enough for two meals and another lunch. Joann Haley has been subscribing to Blue Apron for about three months and says she and her husband, Mitch, have really enjoyed about 80 percent of the meals. When they didnt care for them, it was mostly because they prefer their food with a lot of seasoning and heat and these dishes were on the blander side. The Haleys had been getting a weekly package but just cut back to every other week of the fish and vegetable option. Ms. Haley says although some of the recipes take a bit more preparation than estimated on the recipe cards, in general she has found them easy to prepare. And the savings on their grocery bills has been tremendous. I think the amount were saving on groceries equals what the Blue Apron box costs, she says. Another plus is that its introduced them to a broader range of ingredients. Id never even seen black rice before, she says. I probably would never have purchased faro, but now I love farro (an ancient strain of wheat growing in popularity because of its high protein content). And I never thought to use fruits in dishes, but some of the recipes add an orange or clementine to the recipe and it brightens it up. And Ive never eaten this much kale ever. It encourages me to cook more frequently, Ms. Haley says, because I have all the ingredients and a recipe already there.An appetizing optionOur experience has been much like that of the others quoted in this story. Ive cooked with ingredients such as freekeh (a protein-packed wheat) as well as with Medjool dates, sumac, labneh and tatsoi. Weve loved the variety and the ease of knowing we could come home and there would be something to cook with all the ingredients ready and waiting. For those who eat meat my husband eats fish but not meat, so we subscribed to the vegetarian option with Hello Fresh and the fish and veggie one with Blue Apron there are other interesting dishes. Recent offerings for carnivores on the Hello Fresh menus have included chicken paillard with mustard potato and green bean salad; Korean-style beef stir fry with broccolini, brown rice and sesame; and bone-in pork chops with roasted pear, collards and shallot cream sauce. Its hard for me to say which of the services I like better. They run about the same price, and both are delivered midweek to my door. (Both also offer a larger box for families that are priced accordingly.) You can stop and start your deliveries whenever you want. Both give you a rough estimate of prep time. Hello Fresh packages each meal in a separate box (all contained in a larger cardboard box delivered to your door) thats labeled and can be slipped right into the refrigerator as-is. Then all you need to do is pull it out when you are ready to use it. Thats a big plus. The recipes also clearly state if there are any allergens in them (soy, gluten, etc.) and rate the recipes degree of difficulty. Blue Apron sends its ingredients for all three meals in one large box, so you do have to do a little sorting when its time to cook. But the ingredients are usually in plastic wrappers that are labeled, and the smaller items are grouped in a bag marked knickknacks with the recipes title on them, so it isnt that tough to gather them. If you eat fish but not meat, Blue Aprons weekly selections include one fish dish and two veggie dishes, whereas its either all veggie or meat and fish on the Hello Fresh plan. We like having a fish dish. Hello Fresh has been featuring one dish a week created by well-known chef Jamie Oliver. While I was initially excited at the prospect of trying some of his offerings, they have been the least flavorful ones and in last weeks package, Jamies Squash and Penne Bake with Golden Bread Crumbs packed 886 calories a serving, including a whopping 23 grams of fat, 11 of those the saturated variety. For a chef known for being health-conscious, this seemed extreme. After having tried about a dozen dishes from each service, I may be slightly more favorably disposed to Blue Aprons recipes and the fact that it offers the mix of fish and veggies. But both deliver top-quality products fresh produce and eggs and no processed foods. The only packaged items Ive received are some beans, and they typically come in a carton rather than a can. The result is that I look forward to cooking each night and weve had no repeats yet in the two months that weve been subscribers. Also, our dining out has been considerably reduced. We go out about once a week now, so the money we save from staying home just one night a week pays for three Blue Apron or Hello Fresh meals. Add to that the fact that our supermarket bills are about half what they used to be, and we rarely throw out any rotten fruit and vegetables anymore, and it equals savings for us. The best part: We are eating healthy meals at home and without having to battle our way into restaurants that are teeming with winter visitors. These plans arent going to work for everyone, but for time-impoverished people who like from-scratch meals and those looking to broaden their repertoires, meal kits by mail are likely to be an appetizing option.

The production is in collaboration with the Florida Gulf Coast University Chamber Choir, the Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers Chamber Chorus, a core ensemble of eight soloists and the Gulfshore Opera Orchestra and Chorus. Gulfshore Opera will bring the Gospel of Matthew to music through J. S. Bachs sacred passion play. Usually performed as a concert, this production will be staged. The Evangelist, Matthew, will sing from memory in costume and in English, as will Jesus and the other disciples, said Steffanie Pearce, Gulfshore Opera founder and general director. It will be a sung passion play. The Saint Matthew Passion requires two choruses and a double orchestra, and is usually performed in large metropolitan areas due to its complexity and the number of artists required. This is the first time it has been performed in Southwest Florida. Gulfshore Opera has many collaborative partners, Ms. Pearce said. For this production we are very happy to be working with the FGCU Chamber Choir and the Fort Myers Mastersingers Chamber Choir. Both choirs have been working on their parts for several months. Bachs Saint Matthew Passion was first heard on Good Friday, 1727, in Leipzig, Germany. It is exceptional for its musical richness and its grand scope. Bach wrote his Saint Matthew Passion to present the Passion story in music at Good Friday services. In 1829, it was revived by Felix Mendelssohn, creating renewed interest in Bach that grew throughout the 19th century and still continues. With great drama, Bachs Saint Matthew Passion retells the story of the events leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus. Thomas Glenn will perform the role of narrator Matthew the Evangelist. Mr. Glenn, a Canadian tenor, brings much experience to this role, having performed it in numerous productions. The role of Jesus will be performed by Colin Ramsey, bass-baritone. The FGCU Chamber Choir and the Gulfshore Opera Orchestra and Chorus are directed by Dr. Trent Brown of the Bower School of Music and the Arts at FGCU. The Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers Chamber Chorus will be led by artistic director Jeff Faux. Performing the Saint Matthew Passion will forever change the lives of the students in the Chamber Choir. It will create an affinity for Bach that will stay with the singers forever. Im thrilled that Gulfshore Opera is bringing this work to Southwest Florida and involving community groups in collaboration, said Dr. Brown. The Gulfshore Opera Orchestra is made up of the best professional musicians from three counties, including musicians who regularly perform with the Charlotte County Symphony, Southwest Florida Symphony and the Naples Philharmonic. The Gulfshore Opera Orchestra is very excited to be playing this great master work. Several section leaders have agreed to memorize their instrumental solos so they can move out front with the vocal soloists to perform in duet style. This along with costumes and staging of the principal soloists and English translations of all recitatives (narrations and dialogue) will make the production accessible to new audiences. We are working very diligently to get word out about this profoundly inspiring sacred work composed by Bach to be performed during the season of Lent, Ms. Pearce said. With a mission to be inclusive and accessible, Gulfshore Opera offers a limited number of $25 sponsored seats to those who otherwise would not be able to attend.

Music icon Justin Hayward reflects on a long run with the Moody Blues BY KENT WOLGAMOTT Florida Weekly CorrespondentJustin Hayward has a featured position in the Moody Blues, as its singer, guitarist and main songwriter. But that latter talent looks like it wont get any further use within that group. The Moody Blues last released an album in 2003 the holiday CD December. There hasnt been a studio album of new, original music since 1999s Strange Times. Mr. Hayward said that its likely to be the bands final studio album. I think this is probably it, he said. People want DVDs from us now. I think any product we do will be along that line. Even if the Moody Blues is done making albums, they leave fans with an impressive discography. The group started out in 1964 as a rhythm and blues-flavored pop outfit, and scored its first hit, Go Now, a year later. The song put the Moody Blues on the map with other British Invasion bands. But Merseybeat wasnt the Moody Blues sound at least after Mr. Hayward joined the group in 1966. He and bassist John Lodge came on board in time to make the album that saw the Moody Blues evolve from an R&B-based pop band into a far grander style of pop rock with 1967s Days of Future Passed. Featuring Nights in White Satin, the album is considered by many to be the first progressive rock album, and its lush, melodic and expansive songs gave the Moody Blues a stylistic template from which to build. I came to the group, actually, as a guy who wrote songs, Mr. Hayward said. Mike Pinder of the Moody Blues called me because hed heard my songs (via Eric Burden of the Animals). I sort of see myself as a guy who writes songs who got to be in a band that plays them. Nights in White Satin was originally a fairly modest song, the songwriter said. I was at the end of a love affair and starting another one, Mr. Hayward said. I was 19-20 years (old) and I just had this simple song. They didnt think much of it when I played it. Then (Moody Blues thenkeyboardist) Mike Pinder, who had one of the first mellotrons, said, Play it, again. He played it with me and there it was. The band immediately began playing, recording and releasing Mr. Haywards songs. But the Moody Blues didnt get a hit right away. Nights in White Satin didnt connect when Days of Future Passed was released in 1967. But when it was re-released five years later, it was a different story, as Nights in White Satin reached No. 2 on the Billboard magazine singles chart. By that time, The Moody Blues had released six more albums, establishing themselves as a true classic rock band with their inclusion of classical music concepts and sounds in their music. But it was Nights circa 1967 that made The Moodies. It was the song, along with Tuesday Afternoon, that defined us and our sound, Mr. Hayward said, mentioning another cornerstone track that was also on Days of Future Passed. It gave us a unique kind of style. Thats still important for groups today to clearly define their own style and sound. Go Now was a cover song. When we started doing our own stuff is when we really became The Moody Blues. The half dozen albums that followed Days of Future Passed firmly established the Moody Blues as a force on the rock scene. Those albums include the groups first top 20 album in the United States, 1969s On the Threshold of a Dream, a second 1969 album, To Our Childrens Childrens Children, and 1972s chart-topping album Seventh Sojourn, which featured the hits Isnt Life Strange and Im Just A Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band). The Moody Blues then took a hiatus that stretched on for six years. During that period, Mr. Hayward and Mr. Lodge teamed up to release the 1975 album, Blue Jays, while Mr. Hayward followed that with his first solo effort, 1977s Songwriter. When the Moody Blues returned in 1978 with the album Octave, the group had a new keyboardist, Patrick Moraz, who stepped in for the departing Pinder. And while Octave featured the hit single Steppin In A Slide Zone, the band members have frequently said the group didnt really hit its stride artistically again until the 1981 album Long Distance Voyager. The 1980s saw three more studio albums and hit songs such as Your Wildest Dreams and I Know Youre Out There Somewhere, before the pace of studio recordings slowed in the 1990s. People think the s were our best time, Mr. Hayward said. But to be honest, the most fun was that time in the s to have that opportunity to be on TV and have all the times of having hit singles in your early 40s. I was a kid in the s, with my head down and a little too stoned. In the s, I was able to enjoy it. Believe it or not, a lot of our audience today came from that time, not the s. Today, Mr. Hayward, Mr. Lodge, who penned Im Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band), and drummer Graeme Edge, who has been with the band from the beginning, make up The Moody Blues. And if the groups recording days are over, that probably means Mr. Hayward will pick up the pace on making solo albums. He has released four solo albums since Songwriter Night Flight (1980), Moving Mountains (1985), The View from the Hill (1996) and Spirits of the Western Sky (2013). Mr. Haywards solo dates are smaller affairs than a Moody Blues concert, but he said hed still be playing, even if to passersby on the street. I kind of feel a duty to do it, he said. Number one, its a lot of fun doing it. I wouldnt want to give that up lightly. But I do feel a duty to the music. Ive got a feeling Id be doing it somewhere no matter what. Nights in White Satin, however, has ensured that Mr. Hayward will continue to have a large audience for as long as he continues to play. He wouldnt have guessed that when he wrote the song. If he had, The Moody Blues singer and guitarist says, I would have run a mile if youd have told me what would happen. I would have been scared.

CONTRACT BRIDGETaking out insurance BY STEVE BECKEROnly rarely does declarer elect to play a game or slam contract in a 4-3 trump fit. This is as it should be, since holding only seven trumps to the opponents' six is not the type of trump superiority one yearns for at a high-level contract. Normally such contracts, which carry with them the inherent danger of losing control of the trump suit, are avoided by finding a longer trump suit or by playing in notrump. However, there are times when there is no better alternative than to choose a 4-3 trump fit as in the present case. Contracts that are based on a 4-3 fit often require special handling to compensate for the trump deficiency, and this is where South fell from grace. West started with the K-A of spades and continued with the queen. South ruffed and played three rounds of trumps. When the opposing trumps turned out to be divided 4-2 instead of 3-3, he began to play diamonds. West ruffed the third diamond with his remaining trump and cashed the 10-3 of spades to defeat the contract two tricks. Declarer erred when he trumped the third round of spades. By doing so, he put himself in a position where anything but a 3-3 heart division would endanger the contract. Instead, South should have discarded a club on the third spade in order to retain full control whether the trumps were divided 4-2 or 3-3. No return by West could then have hurt declarer. Another spade would be trumped high in dummy as South kept all four trumps in his hand, while a diamond, club or heart return would allow him to win, draw trumps and collect the 10 tricks he had started with.

FILM CAPSULESTriple 9 1/2(Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie, Casey Affleck) A rookie detective (Mr. Affleck) unwittingly gets caught in the middle of a Russian mob boss (Ms. Winslet) and the corrupt detective (Mr. Mackie) and his band of thieves who are part of her payroll. The story has some predictable twists, but it lacks surprises. Its decent overall, but dont expect much. Rated R.How To Be Single (Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie) New York City singles find themselves among friends not romantic partners in this smart comedy. Ms. Wilson gets the biggest laughs with Leslie Mann coming in a close second. Best of all, this film allows people to be single and happy, which is a rarity in movies. Rated R.The Finest Hours (Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Eric Bana) In the winter of 1952, f our men in the Coast Guard set sail near Cape Cod, Mass., to save the survivors of a shipwrecked oil tanker. Its a harrowing action drama with solid visual effects and action. Rated PG-13.45 Years 1/2(Charlotte Rampling, Tom Courtenay, Geraldine James) In the week leading up to their 45th anniversary party, Geoff (Mr. Courtenay) and Kate (Ms. Rampling) discover surprising news from Geoffs past that shakes the foundation of their marriage. The story feels honest and realistic, and Ms. Rampling deserves her Oscar nomination (note how she emotes with her body and face, not just her words). Rated R. The Witch (Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie) In Puritan New England circa 1630, a family that lives on its own in the woods is tormented by witchcraft. Its minimalist and moody, though not altogether enticing. Shocks come, but there are too few. Rated R.Deadpool 1/2(Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller) Diagnosed with terminal cancer, bad boy and reluctant hero Wade Wilson (Mr. Reynolds) undergoes treatment that makes him a mutant (the story takes place in the X-Men universe). The problem is hes now deformed, seeking revenge and worried his girlfriend (Ms. Baccarin) will no longer want to be with him. Sex, violence, profanity, great action, lots of laughs its everything a superhero movie should always be and almost never is. Except now. Rated R.Hail, Caesar! 1/2(George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin) In 1950s Hollywood, a studio boss (Mr. Brolin) struggles to find his star actor (Mr. Clooney) after he goes missing. Neither funny nor smart, its a major disappointment from the Coen Bros. (The Big Lebowski). Rated PG-13.Kung Fu Panda 3 1/2(Voices of Jack Black, J.K. Simmons, Angelina Jolie) With the villain Kai (Mr. Simmons) stealing the Chi of kung fu masters everywhere, its up to Po (Mr. Black) to save the day. Its a by-the-numbers sequel thats silly and fun enough to keep kids entertained for 95 minutes. Rated PG. C14 WEEK OF MARCH 3-9, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Be A Part of the Show!

LATEST FILMSWhiskey Tango FoxtrotIs it worth $10? YesThe biggest problem with Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is that it stars Tina Fey and was written by Robert Carlock, who along with Ms. Fey created the TV hit Rock. Anyone familiar with their work will expect this movie to be a straight-up comedy and understandably so, given their track record and the humor-driven trailers. But this is not a straight-up comedy; it has funny scenes, but theres also a serious tone that belies the levity. If youre expecting nonstop laughter, you will assuredly be disappointed. None of this is Ms. Feys fault, mind you. She plays her character well in both dramatic and comedic moments. You can, however, blame Mr. Carlock and directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Focus) for the unbalanced tone. And boy ,does this matter: Selling the audience one thing (a comedy) and delivering another (funny moments accompanying deadly serious elements) doesnt work for positive word of mouth. For example: Last fall Crimson Peak was in some ways sold as a horror movie even though it was actually a gothic period piece, and it grossed only $31 million on a $55 million budget. That said, the biggest shame of all with Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is this: The movie is actually good on its own terms, yet people might not appreciate it if they go in with misguided expectations. Based on the book The Taliban Shuffle by Kim Barker, Ms. Fey plays Ms. Barker, a television news journalist in New York City whos sent to Afghanistan in 2003 to cover Operation Enduring Freedom. In Kabul she meets similarly displaced journalists from around the world, including the gorgeous and British Tanya (Margot Robbie) and the Scottish lothario Iain (Martin Freeman). She has a hunky bodyguard (Stephen Peacocke), a helpful guide (Christopher Abbott) and a working relationship with a Marine Corps general (Billy Bob Thornton) and the future attorney general of Afghanistan (Alfred Molina). Kim is only supposed to be in Kabul for three months, but ends up staying three years. The film is at its best when the humor and dramatic elements work in unison. Kim is a professional woman in a dangerous area that treats women like secondclass citizens, so its both funny and a social commentary for her to be called a shameless whore upon arriving in Kabul with her head not covered. Kims attractiveness is also played for laughs when shes told by men and women that shes close to a 0 in Kabul, whereas shed be more like a five or six back home. A man wouldnt be spoken to like this, so its an alarming indication that the way we socially and culturally view women is omnipresent even in the midst of wartime conflict. Aside from being an odd mix of comedy and drama with a smattering of explosive violence thrown in for good measure the story lacks a clear narrative thrust. With not much pushing it forward besides Kims adventures in Kabul, the plot meanders along without urgency, episodic in structure rather than building to a climax. Things happen, but they rarely feel essential. This is partially redeemed in the conclusion when various threads come together, but by then it feels too late. And yet, it all works. Ms. Fey is fallible and likeable, an appealing presence were happy to root for even when she makes questionable decisions. The film opens with the song Jump Around (always a crowd favorite) and has a peppy pop soundtrack throughout. In its totality, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is enjoyable, even if its not what you had expected. a a C t ( t dan >> No joke: In its March 2011 review of the book The Taliban Shuf e, The New York Times wrote that Kim Barker depicts herself as a sort of Tina Fey character.

Collier Boulevard, Marco Island Bene ts St. Marks Church For Information, Call 732-682-3230 Craftsmanfrom acrossAmerica KOVEL: ANTIQUESAd signs in good condition, with great graphics bring top dollar BY TERRY AND KIM KOVEL In the 1980s, a series of restaurant chains started decorating with old advertising signs, figures, bottles and boxes to promote the idea of old-time menus and traditional food favorites. There were already serious advertising collectors searching for signs that pictured authentic examples of past lifestyles, choices of merchandise and printing technology. Metal signs were the most expensive. A method of printing on tin was developed in 1876. One popular but rare sign is the 16-by10-inch Egg-O-See cereal self-framed, lithographed tin sign. Egg-O-See was a processed wheat cereal created in 1906 that was well advertised. The sign pictures a boy in overalls eating at a Mission oak breakfast table in an upto-date 1910 room. There is a potted fern on the windowsill of a leaded glass window. On the table is a blue-green box of cereal, a glass sugar bowl and a glass of milk. With the boy are his dog and two cats hoping for some scraps. The slogan on the frame reads Dere aint goner be no leavins. Four of these signs sold for announced prices at large auctions between 2007 and 2015. All were in excellent condition with only a few flaws in the paint or a slight dent. The earliest sold for $664 and five years later, another brought $750. Then a year later one sold for $950, and last year, $2,250. Advertising signs have been going up in price, but only when the graphics are great and the condition is excellent. Q: I have a table that was passed on to me by an aunt. It is 27 inches high and has three tiers, a round one in the center and two lower ones on either side. The table has four legs, flared, under a harp pedestal. There is a mark stamped on the bottom, a triangle within a triangle and the name Mersman. Can you tell me how old this table is and what it is worth? A: J.B. Mersman owned sawmills in northeastern Indiana, moved to northwest Ohio in 1876, and began to make tables. By 1900 he had opened a factory in Celina, Ohio, and was making dining and library tables and beds. Mersman turned the company over to two of his sons and by 1927, after a series of name changes, the company was known as Mersman Brothers Corp., with warehouses in about eight major cities. The company specialized in medium-quality occasional tables they made millions and radio cabinets. Mersman Bros. was bought by Congoleum in 1963, sold to a private investment group in 1977, and stopped production completely in 1995. Your table was made in the 1940s and is worth $100 to $200. Q: My 11-inch high copper colored vase has iridescent abstract flowers and squiggles as decoration. The bottom is marked with a cluster of five skinny towers in a dotted line circle. The words Zsolnay Pecs are inside the circle. Can you tell me how old it is and some history? A: Zsolnay Pecs is part of the mark for a Hungarian pottery started in 1853. The Art Nouveau pieces often with three-dimensional women were made in the 1900s until about 1930. Today a figural vase can bring thousands of dollars. A large, less elaborate piece as early as yours also will sell for thousands. Modern pieces that are marked with the 1996 and after mark that includes the symbols and words of your vase, plus the founding date of 1853 sell for hundreds of dollars. Egg-O-See was a popular cereal about 1910 and this tin sign was an ad found in the general store. The self-framed tin sign made by Meek Co. of Coshocton, Ohio, sold for $2,250 in June 2015 at a James Julia auction in Fairfield, Maine.


Is this or is this not the best time to be in Florida? The weather is perfect, the beaches are crowded and the collector events are plentiful. Feel like travel? Its a great time to see whats out there. Southwest Florida does not seem to be the mecca for shows that it once was. Other than last months big show in Naples, theres not a lot going on. But you can drive east for the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival, set for March 4-6 at the South Florida Fairgrounds. Its about two hours from Fort Myers, and we routinely see folks who drive over for the day from Naples and Pine Island. The March show should be a good one, with plenty of seasonal dealers offering a variety of antiques and decorative accessories. Or, why not make a weekend of it and hang around March 5 for Evening on Antique Row, which benefits the Historical Society of Palm Beach County? Its a fun event along South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach, with food trucks and music. Shops will be open and the champagne will be flowing. I may make a trip of my own the weekend of March 12-13 to check out the Vintage and Collectibles Fair at Sarasotas Municipal Auditorium. Heres the skinny: West Palm Beach Antiques Festival 9 a.m.-5 p.m. March 4-5, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. March 6 at the South Florida Fairgrounds, Southern Boulevard just east of U.S. 441, West Palm Beach.

Next sale is March 12-13; Cost: $50 for the pair. The Skinny: This weeks find is decidedly middle class. Or at least it was when new, probably in the midto late 19th century, when women and children labored in the factories of the West Midlands of England to make these pieces of decorative pottery for the countrys burgeoning middle class. The colorful pottery, made throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, often was used as prizes at carnivals and such. But pieces came to be popular in the 20th century. My antiques dealer friend Ed Pry remembers seeing warehouses full of reproduction Staffordshire figures in the 0s in England. Many were being aged by being left out in sun or had soot rubbed into the glaze to make them look like they had crazing acquired over decades.

Mr. Sondheim and John Lapine created Into the Woods in 1985. It debuted on Broadway in 1987 and won several Tony Awards, including Best Score, Best Book and Best Actress in a Musical for Joanna Gleasons role as The Bakers Wife. A film adaptation starring Meryl Streep was released in 2014. The musical blends the plots of several Grimm fairy tales and follows the characters quests to fulfill their dearest wishes. The plot centers on an original story about a childless baker and the consequences his family endures for stealing from a witch a generation earlier. Familiar characters include Rapunzel, Cinderella, Jack and Little Red Riding Hood. Mr. Danni has decided to present the play differently from the original in order to take advantage of the small venue TheatreZone calls home at The Community School of Naples. G&L Theatre is a 250-seat space that Danni uses for professional productions of musical theater. Audience members can count on seeing a different take on how the narrator presents his story. Musical Director Michael Horsley edited the score to accommodate Mr. Dannis changes, which he found to be challenging because Sondheim is a notoriously specific composer. (Sondheim) likes nothing that is extra everything has a specific reason to support whats happening in the staging, Mr. Horsley said. We had to take his musical phrases and splice them so they make musical sense and still carry the impact of the story. Both he and Mr. Danni are proud of the end product. It took every second of last week to do this, but we did get through it, he said. Mr. Danni also successfully reinterpreted Sweeney Todd last year to appeal to theatergoers who avoid the show because the original production is so bloody. After a good run in Naples, Opera Roanoke caught wind of his concept and used it last summer. TheatreZones 13-member cast for Into the Woods includes Billy Sharpe (The Baker), Laura Needle (The Bakers Wife), Megan Jimenez (The Witch), Kara Konken (Cinderella), Jessica Daniels (Little Red Riding Hood), Lauren Davis (Rapunzel), Wesley Slade (Jack), Daniel Schwab (The Narrator), Patti Gardner (Jacks Mother), Danae DeShazer (Stepmother), Gerrit VanderMeer (Cinderellas Prince/Wolf), Elliott Needle (The Boy) and Steven Geyer (Rapunzels Prince). Karen Molnar is the shows choreographer. The companys 11th season concludes with the tap-dancing comedy Dames at Sea, on stage April 28-May 8.

Opera Naples casts classic romance La Traviata in a whole new lightOpera Naples presents La Traviata on Friday and Sunday, March 18 and 20, in the newly designed grand lawn pavilion at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. Director James Alexander has traveled from Georgia to oversee the staging of the performance. Mr. Alexander is the founder of a company called Symphony V that realizes presentations for symphony orchestras and opera companies using pioneering lighting effects, 3D mapping and innovative sound technology. Symphony V is collaborating with Media Source Solutions in Miami to execute the complex technology specifically designed for this production. Its a combination sure to have the audience looking at Verdia 163-year-old opera in a whole new light. Patrons who are not operatically inclined will still recognize many of the arias in La Traviata from countless television commercials. To help make the evening even more memorable, The Ritz-Carlton is offering patrons a four-course, gourmet dinner in the hotel immediately before each performance. Appetizers and entre with wine will be served before the show and champagne and dessert will be served during intermission. Ramon Tebar, who conducted the London Philharmonic at the Royal Festival Hall last month, will conduct for Opera Naples. Tenor Andrej Dunaev will sing the role of Alfredo, and soprano Elizabeth Caballero has been cast in her signature role of Violetta. The role of Germont will be performed by Cuban-American baritone Nelson Martinez. Opera Naples is offering those who purchase tickets to La Traviata free tickets to one of two upcoming concerts at The Da vid and C ecile Wang Opera Center: the Grammy Award-winning Ying String Quartet (8 p.m. Tuesday, March 8) or An Evening in the Palacio de Zarzuela (8 p.m. Monday, April 18).

CELEBRITY EXTRABusy actress likes new role BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ : I was watching Castle the other day, and there was a blond actress who looked really familiar. She played a lawyer who started a nonprofit for disadvantaged women, and it turned out her husband accidentally killed one of the women. Can you tell me about her? Bridget G., West Palm BeachA: You are thinking of the gorgeous and talented and super-sweet Fiona Gubelmann. Shes best known for costarring with Elijah Wood in Wilfred, but shes done a ton of stuff before and since. In fact, shes guest-starred on many of my favorite shows, including Castle, Californication, Dont Trust the B---in Apartment 23 and Modern Family, as well as the feature films Blades of Glory and Employee of the Month. You can catch Fiona at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 19, in the original Lifetime thriller Mommys Little Girl. Fiona plays Theresa, a woman whose husband died shortly after they were married, so she left her infant, Sadie, in the care of her grandmother, unaware that the bitter, resentful woman isolated the girl, never allowing her to socialize with other children, leaving Sadie ill-equipped to handle real life. Fiona had fun playing this different kind of role, telling me: Whats so great about the film is that it could be just silly, like, Would a kid really do this? But what the writers did so brilliantly and as well as under the direction of Curtis Crawford and Pierre David, our producer is that they made sure the story was motivated by true feelings and emotions of this little girl just wanting to be close to her mom. Q: Please tell me that Outlander is returning soon! I cant take the wait! Pauline T., via emailA: Youll have to wait just a little longer. Season two of the historical time-travel fantasy premieres April 9 on Starz. This 13-episode season will transport viewers to France during the Jacobite uprisings.

THE DISH The Dish: Bratwurst The Price: $5 The Place: Johnsonville Marketplace 6355 Naples Blvd. The Hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday The Details: Is there anything that goes better with beer than a brat? We were at Bonita Brew Fest last weekend and it took until the very end of the evening for us to realize we were starving, thanks to all those delicious empty calories in craft beer. We could have lined up at one of the several food trucks that were selling ceviche and other casual delicacies, but could we have paired any of it with sauerkraut? Nope. Luckily, if youre in the mood for German sausage in a bun, the Johnsonville storefront is happy to oblige and will provide you with a number of interpretations without forcing you to search out food fairs or parking lots.

VINOHow heresy, crusaders and a pope led to some excellent wineNot long ago, a friend conned me into splitting a case of red from the Languedoc. It turned out to be clean, tasty and inexpensive, so I hauled out my trusty wine atlas and asked some serious questions. Where is the Languedoc, anyway? Whats the weather like? Do they have any good Mexican restaurants? As it turns out, the Languedoc is in the south of France (I actually guessed France right away), running roughly parallel to the Mediterranean coast. There are pitifully few enchilada establishments, but the inhabitants compensate by growing sensational grapes and making wonderful wine, which they insist on selling at comically low prices. They all live in tiny villages with names like Nissan-lez-Enserune, which means Your Japanese car has leaked brake fluid on my new Reeboks, and Aspiran, which means either heavy breathing or headache relief, depending on the local dialect. The big discovery: sometimes wine is the way it is not just because of the grapes, or the ground, or the guy or gal who made it, but also because of long-ago historical events and imperatives. The Languedoc is a perfect example, thanks to the Albigensian Crusade, which was so named because it was centered around the town of Albi, the birthplace of Toulouse-Lautrec, though he was not home at the time. The Albigensian Crusade was a wave of religious persecution, a common pastime back then (and still today), and it had a direct effect on what was in the case of wine I was forced to buy.Lotario di Segni was elected pope in 1198, and took the name Innocent III, which just shows what a puckish sense of humor he had, because innocence was far from his most distinguishing character trait. He immediately set about convincing everyone in Western Europe that the pope was superior in power and authority to any earthly or lay ruler. This, unsurprisingly, did little to endear him to the kings and princes of Europes many city-states, most of whom Di Segni excommunicated on a depressingly regular basis. He threw the Count of Toulouse out of the church 12 times.And thats why the wines of the Languedoc are so good. During that era a bunch of Christians around the town of Albi decided that traditional Catholicism wasnt exactly blowing their collective skirts up, and adopted some pretty weird beliefs that were far outside of Catholic orthodoxy. The beliefs of the Cathari, as they were known, spread fairly rapidly because they preached incessantly until people converted just to make them go away, and they quickly rose to positions of influence. Remains of their castles can still be seen in the Languedoc. Anyway, Innocent III finally got fed up with the fact that there were people running around the south of France believing in weird stuff. To get them to mend their ways, he sent St. Bernard of Clairvaux, wandering friars, papal legates everybody but the Vienna Boys Choir to preach around Albi and gently show the Cathari the error of their ways. Didnt help. Finally, Innocent declared the Albigensian Crusade, which sent throngs of knights and soldiers into the area to root out the heresy once and for all. Not surprisingly, the crusaders quickly directed their efforts toward political and economic, rather than spiritual, ends, and spent their days doing what most invading armies of the time did looting and burning. Thats why the wines of the Languedoc are the way they are. Because of the burning. Winemaking villagers in the Languedoc mostly didnt give the crusaders the right answer when questioned about their beliefs, so the crusaders would kill every living thing in sight and then burn the vineyards. Over time, as the vineyards were restored, new and exciting grape varieties sprouted up. Today, the area grows mainly carignan, cinsault, grenache, syrah and mourvedre. There is also a healthy amount of chardonnay. The wines of this region are spectacular bargains. My favorites are: Domaine Gardies Cotes du Roussillon-Villages Les Milleres Plum, raspberry and plenty of red currant with a firm tannic structure. Should age well. Cave de Roquebrun Coteaux du Languedoc Terrasses du Frigoulet 2011 Dont let the polysyllabic name scare you off. This one is powerful and concentrated, with plum, cherry pie and dark chocolate. It should be widely available. M. Chapoutier Cotes du Roussillon-Villages Les Vignes de Bila Haut 2010 Chapoutier is a major quality producer. This bottling was a Wine Spectator Top 100 selection, it costs $13 and they made 35,000 cases. We get ours from B-21 in Clearwater. Sample widely. Write me. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group, and his new book, Secrets of the Wine Whisperer, is available through his website or on Amazon. Read his other writings on his website, o h r b d w jerry Remains of fortified homesteads, now called Cathar castles, can still be found in some areas in Languedoc, surrounded by orchards.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 3-9, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 CHEF Q&ADriven by a lifelong passion for Italian food BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comChef Vincenzo Betulias authentic and meticulously crafted rustic Italian fare at his namesake restaurants, Osteria Tulia and Bar Tulia, have sent up a flare to the mainstream culinary world that Naples is a place to watch. Read on to find out more about Chef Betulia and what makes his food so good and so popular. Q: What is your culinary background? A: After growing up in an Italian household and eating common food of southern Italy, becoming a chef was not a hard decision for me. I have worked in the business for 27 years now, and have always had a drive and an endless passion to cook Italian cuisine and educate the public on the Italian kitchen and culture, which go very much hand in hand. The food at Osteria Tulia is like you get in Italy, not like Olive Garden. The majority of my food style was shaped by Paul Bartolotta at Spiaggia in Chicago and also at his restaurants in Milwaukee, Wis. I have worked side by side with many of todays great chefs, including Michael White (Marea, New York City) Mark Mendez (Vera, Chicago) Michael Carlson (Schwa, Chicago) Mark Weber (Lake Park Bistro, Milwaukee) and Rhys Lewis (American Club in Kohler, Wis.). Q: How were you inspired to become a chef? A: My grandmother lived with us and I watched her cooking 24/7, everything from pizza doughs, pastries and pastas to canning garden vegetables in the fall so we could eat tomatoes in February. I got a job with my fathers childhood friend who was a chef in a mom-and-pop restaurant on the east side of Milwaukee. I washed dishes and made salads. Then I went to San Francisco and met a guy at my cousins restaurant who was attending the California Culinary Academy. Culinary school became an option after high school graduation. On my return to Milwaukee, I got a job with Bartolotta and the rest is history. Working with Paul and Joe Bartolotta was quite inspiring. Q: What brought you to Naples? A: My girlfriend broke up with me. I was crushed, so I moved. Naples has such a strong Midwest connection I love the sun and hot weather and I saw an opportunity down here where I could do my food and educate a well-traveled public. The ultimate compliment for me is when my guests tell me they just returned from Italy and my food is better. Q: Please tell us about your time in Milwaukee and you relationship with Paul Bartolotta and Michael White. A: Paul was a mentor to me. He talked me out of going to the Culinary Institute of America and to work at Spiaggia instead. I worked in both the caf and the dining room. As a young cook just out of high school, I was working 80-90 hours a week getting paid $6.25 per hour and I had no time to enjoy the city. By then Paul was at celebrity status, so we did many functions where I met and cooked next to great chefs like Charlie Trotter, Rick Bayless, Emeril Lagasse. I quickly turned into a cooking monster, always behind the eight ball and being pushed to the culinary edge of no return, where most cooks give up and jump. I didnt. Another young cook who didnt jump was Michael White. I met him after his first return to Spiaggia from Italy We became friends, just two guys out of Wisconsin cooking like crazy men for an amazing restaurant that shaped us to be who we are today. Q: Youre known for meticulous sourcing of ingredients for both Bar Tulia and Osteria Tulia. Which ingredients do you insist must be imported? Which do you insist must be local? A: The Italian staples are imported. Olive oil we direct import from the region of Puglia, balsamic vinegar and saba from Modena, San Marzano tomatoes for the sauces are imported as well, along with all the cheeses. We import lots of black and white truffles only from Italy with government stamped documentation. For the local fare we bring in, we start with relationships with farmers and growers Oakes Farms, Collier Family Farms, Calusa Farms, Harpke family farms for vegetables and micro greens. Fresh-caught fish is from the Keys, and local beef from Jackman Ranch. Q: Why did you feel the need to add a gastropub to a fine dining establishment? A: It was inspired by the physical space a long narrow room with not a whole lot of room Bar Tulia (is where) one can dine as much as they want, whether small bites or a full meal. That was the intention of the restaurant: casual, full of energy, edgy, warm and inviting. Q: Your restaurants are jam-packed this time of year. What is tourist season like for your and your employees? A: Were very fortunate and thankful to be busy all year long. Winter season comes hard and heavy, but we all work as a team to please everyone. Im proud to say that we grind it out all year long. My employees dont see a major drop in business or personal income in the off-season. Q: What do you find challenging? A: Finding employees with passion. Also, getting people to understand what is in your head and hands and getting them to recreate it. Q: Who or what are your greatest culinary influences? A: My grandmother, Paul Bartolotta, Daniel Boulud, Mario Batali, Thomas Keller, Giorgio Locatelli, Gualtiero Marchese, Massimo Bottura, Valentino Marcattilli There are too many to mention. Q: What has been one of your favorite culinary experiences? A: Eating my way through Italy and seeing how the different regions kitchens and cuisines vary so much from one another. France is a close second. Q: What are your favorite culinary resources (books, blogs, etc.)? How do you keep your dishes relevant? A: I dont rely on books or blogs much. I observe culinary trends, like which ingredient is hip and designing around it, seeing what other chefs are up to in their worlds and really just going out to eat. That is where the true learning experience and inspiration is found. 700 Fifth Avenue South, Naples, Florida 34102 239.659.7008 Visit For Our Menu THE STAR OF GREAT DINING IN NAPLES Featuring Local Seafood & Florida Fresh Produce$19.95 PER PERSON Nightly from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.Daily Lunch Specials$9.95-$13.95 PER PERSON Daily from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Half Price Beverages & Tapas Selections$5.00-$6.00 EACH Daily from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.Live EntertainmentMELVIN & OTHER MUSICIANS PERFORMING LIVE, REFINED MOTOWN TUNES Nightly from 8:30 p.m. to Closing


YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA The construction site is extremely busy at Kalea Bay, the high-rise community being developed by Soave Real Estate on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. The onsite sales center is also very active as potential buyers discover what the gated, resort-lifestyle, high-rise community has to offer. According to Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing, sales have been phenomenal. During the week of February 15 alone, we sold five tower residences which represented more than $10 million in sales, said Wilson. That brings our total sales volume close to the $120 million mark. According to Wilson, recent sales in the first tower now means its 60 percent sold, which is ahead of original projections. The fact construction on the residential tower is well underway, with the eighth floor now visible from Vanderbilt Drive, has helped propel sales, stated Wilson. The communitys clubhouse is also under construction which is prompting buyers to see the value of purchasing now. Both the tower and clubhouse are slated to be completed in the summer of next year. The 22-story tower, with 120 luxury residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths have 3,835 total square feet while residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence, 9 high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens feature Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island. The master bedroom has an oversized walk-in closet and the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Additional 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. Spectacular views are available to every single resident at Kalea Bay, no matter which floor they choose to live. Thats because the towers amenities are located on the rooftop, including a sky lounge, gorgeous pool and open-air fitness center. The residents and their guests will have quite a view from the towers roof, stated Wilson. Not only will they see the Gulf of Mexico and the nature preserve that surrounds our site, but also two of the best beaches in the country. Those beaches include, Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. Construction of Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse began earlier this year and is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. Upon completion, it will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. Nearby will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse area, to a designated Gulf beach. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of Kalea Bay, said Wilson.

Mangrove Bay: coastal style at its finestLiving along the Gordon River in Old Naples sets the tone for the home designs at Mangrove Bay, modeled in the Old Florida cottage style, yet with every modern amenity. The perfect interior design complement to the architectural style of Mangrove Bays 53 luxury single-family homes is best described as coastal style. Faith Fix, ASID, of Freestyle Interiors, describes it as a range of influences that reference the organic colors and textures of coastal nature, and signature styles associated with different coastal areas around the world. The Florida coastal style is an amalgam of influences from different cultures and people coming from different areas, so in some places you might see a lot of Mediterranean influence, and in others, a more traditional New England sense of style. We think of it as a combination of the traditional and the whimsical, light and bright environments, and interiors that reflect color and playfulness. When a homeowner is starting anew, Ms. Fix recommends focusing first on flooring, which then gives a basis for cabinetry finishes and the other tones and finishes throughout the home. Many of the new oak floors have a beachy look that really works with this style. White cabinetry is very in now and works well with it, but it is WHAT white that works with that particular floor choice, whether it is warm or cool, and the white may range from pure to creamy to grey cast. We then typically move from that into the baths and choose tile that works with that same range of tones and brings in personality. Designing these backgrounds is key before picking the furnishings. For homeowners who want to bring coastal-style influences into existing dcor, lighting, accessories, artwork, paint, and texture can turn a home into a coastal retreat. Ms. Fix referenced the interior dcor in the three models at Mangrove Bay as examples. The interiors of the Amelia III model are influenced by a classic New England seaside cottage, with turned legs, painted pieces mixed with antiques, watery shades of blue, and crisp whites. The heart pine floors bring in a more casual feel, as do the traditional bead board accents and bench seat reading nooks. With the Sanibel III, we created a more organic feeling with beautiful toneon-tone choices, soft neutrals, grass cloth, whitewashed woods that have a wirebrushed look, knotted rugs, and lighting that provides an earthy quality. The finishes and textures are coral, woods, sand, and other beach-themed accessories. With the Keewaydin II, the interior design choices were contemporary coastal, with a palette of platinum, stainless, chrome, and creamy tones with pops of color. The coastal palette is generally watery blues, sand tones, greens. That said, weve done earth tones, and then brought in tangerine, coral, and other stronger tonalities, lighter to darker shades, to get another effect that still feels coastal. Coastal style has never been more elegantly refined than at Mangrove Bay. There are 20 different oneand twostory floor plan designs offeredas well as four soon-to-unveil three-story Cove Residences with unique built-in boat garages. This is the perfect time to consider a dwelling with these unmatched views. The Amelia III Waterfront Residence model, temporarily the Mangrove Bay Sales Center, is a four-bedroom plus den, four-andbath home with all primary living spaces (including the master suite, two guest suites, and a private den) located on the ground level and a private-entry guesthouse above the garage. The guest cottage features a generous sitting room, scaled-to-fit kitchenette, private bedroom and bath area, and private balcony. At approximately 3,640 SF under air, The Amelia III evokes a classic seaside cottage, with intricate trim details, a grand beamed, tongue-and-groove ceiling in the great room, cottage-style barn doors, and built-in upholstered bench seats which flank the whitewashed brick fireplace. A second fireplace creates a cozy intimacy in the outdoor living area. This gorgeous model home is available for purchase. The two-story Sanibel III Courtyard Residence offers a four-bedroom, fourandbath design with approximately 3,331 SF under air, including a privateentry guest cottage with its own spacious deck above the rear-entry garage. The respite reclaimed beachthemed aesthetic of the Sanibel III offers dark, light, and weathered wood appointments that perfectly complement its limed oak wood floors, reclaimed wood accents, tongue-and-groove ceiling detail, barn doors, two-story cupola, French doors, transom windows, and custom moldings and cabinetry. Its ground-floor master suite includes corner-pocketing sliding doors, which open to the lanai surrounded by tropical landscaping, a soaring 1 -story covered outdoor living area with fireplace, and a pool and spa with a gently flowing water feature. This spacious model is also available for sale.

Its soaring two-story great room with a unique nickel gap wood ceiling has a focal point stone fireplace balanced by a stained entertainment built-in bar at the opposite end of the space. The kitchens exposed stainless steel hood boasts a quartz backsplash, the same quartz used in its island countertop. The Keewaydins ground-floor master suite offers an oversized sitting area with corner-pocket sliding doors overlooking the lanai, outdoor living space, pool, spa, and Gordon River. The master bath has a free-standing tub, oversized shower, and a separate makeup vanity and morning kitchen.

Livingston Lakes: the best of location and lifestyle Homebuyers in WCI Communities Livingston Lakes find different reasons for choosing the new community. For some, it is the home designs, with flexible spaces for personalization. Others like the idea of living among nature preserves and lakes and enjoying alfresco dining on the lanai. And of course, the easy, maintenance-free lifestyle appeals to everyone. But for Livingston Lakes homebuyers John and Allyson Loos, the communitys premier location on the east side of Livingston Road, just south of Immokalee Road, was key in sealing their decision to select a Carriage Home as their next residence. The Loos family has long-standing ties to the area. As a young boy, John attended elementary school in Naples. He returned to Naples with his own family in the early 2000s, and again, most recently, so their son could complete high school at The Seacrest Country Day School. We love Livingston Lakes for its ideal location, with proximity to the North Collier Regional Park and I-75, said John. And of course, being close to the Childrens Museum was also appealing, he added. Many in the area know the Loos family through their connection to the Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples (CMon). John and Allyson lost their daughter, Bianca, to bacterial meningitis in 1999. In 2001, Allyson dreamed that Bianca told her to start a childrens museum. The beginning of the Childrens Museum was a wonderful example of the heart making a decision without the brains permission, John said. Ally mentioned the dream to a dear friend, and the idea took root. Ten years and hundreds of meetings later, the museum doors opened in 2012. When we moved back to Naples for our son, Ally asked me if I would serve on the museums board of directors. Understandably, the museum means a lot to us, said John. The community feels the same way. In the three and a half years since it opened, nearly half a million children and family members have enjoyed the museum. Livingston Lakes fits John and Allyson lifestyle perfectly. With their son set to graduate this spring, they will move into their Carriage Home in August. We like the size of the homes and the size of the community, John added. Close to Naples premier shopping and dining destinations and the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico beaches, Livingston Lakes Garden, Coach and Carriage Homes offer maintenance-free living for residents who want to easily come and go, enjoying all the area offers. Livingston Lakes is only five miles from the pristine beach and recreational activities at Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, including swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Shopping, dining and entertainment are just as close at the upscale Waterside Shops and Mercato, which also boasts a 12-screen premier-style theater. But with Livingston Lakes community amenities, residents wont have to go far for fun. The newly opened lakefront clubhouse offers a central location for resident events, aerobics and yoga classes, and neighborly gatherings planned by the communitys lifestyle director. The clubhouses gated entry opens into a paved courtyard with seating oriented to a fireplace perfect to enjoy with new neighbors. The club room is a large gathering space with seating areas, a catering kitchen and a freestanding island bar to provide a staging area for parties and events. The fitness center, which offers state-of-the-art cardio and strength training equipment, overlooks the expansive 2,000-square-foot resort-style pool. Mindful of maintaining an intimate environment for community residents, WCI has created Livingston Lakes two-story buildings with 10 residences in Garden Home buildings, six residences in Coach Home buildings and four Carriage Homes per building. Most homes overlook one of the communitys two large lakes. Livingston Lakes six Coach Home designs offer open kitchen, caf and great room plans oriented to lake views. Several designs feature tray ceilings in owners suites and sliding glass doors at great room and caf. The two-bedroom, twobath homes have 1,786 to 1,831 square feet of living space, single-car garages and a private entry. The communitys lake-view, twobedroom, two-bath Carriage Home designs are the largest Livingston Lakes residences. The first-floor Carnoustie design has 1,833 square feet of living space and coffered ceilings in its flex room and owners suite. Located on the second floor, the 2,152-square-foot St. Andrews design features a loft overlooking its first-floor foyer. Carriage Homes offer two-car garages. Coach and Carriage Homes provide spacious owners retreats with large walk-in closets and bathrooms offering showers, private water closets, and vanities with dual sinks. Kitchens feature freestanding island breakfast bars, granite countertops, recessed-panel cabinet doors and pantries. A Whirlpool appliance package offers a range, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator with icemaker. Double-compartment stainless steel sinks have Moen faucets. Coach and Carriage building features include concrete tile roofs, decorative raised-panel garage doors with remote openers and keyless entry pads, and brick paver driveways. WCI also offers twoand three-bedroom, two-bath Garden Home designs with opportunities to personalize planspecific flex spaces and dens. Offering views of lakes and nature preserves, Garden Homes feature an open great room design in 1,168 to 1,258 square feet of air-conditioned living space. Home prices at Livingston Lakes start in the mid-$200,000s. Now, its even easier to imagine your Livingston Lakes lifestyle. A newly completed Garden Home model joins four beautifully furnished Coach and Carriage model homes. Featuring interior design by award-winning Kay Green Designs of Winter Park, Florida, the models embody the possibilities provided by Livingston Lakes great room designs and airy lanais.

Minto announces three new large-scale communities solidifying long-term commitment to Florida while growing existing communitiesMinto Communities announces plans for three new communities in Florida, expanding the company into new markets, and totaling 17,900 lots and 4.2 million square feet of commercial space. The new communities are located in Naples, Daytona Beach and Palm Beach. Minto has a long history in Florida. Over the past 35 years, Minto has built more than 25,000 new homes in 44 communities throughout the state. Minto is committed to Florida which is evidenced by our long positions, notes Minto Senior Vice President William Bullock. Minto Communities and Collier Enterprises recently announced plans for the new Naples area community in eastern Collier County referred to as Rural Lands West that includes 10,000 lots and two million square feet of commercial space. Mintos first phase of this community will be an agerestricted 55-and-better neighborhood with 4,000 homes, a golf course, parks and a town center with commercial, retail, entertainment and dining. The golf cart friendly community will have miles of trailways and kayakways. Planning is underway for Mintos age-restricted 55-and-better community in Daytona Beach, located just west of I-95 off LPGA Boulevard. This new resort-style community will offer 3,400 residences and 215,000 square feet of neighborhood commercial space, along with an array of world-class amenities. The golf cart-friendly community will include a private Beach Club on the Atlantic Ocean for homeowners and guests. With a prime location in Daytona, the community is in close proximity to world-famous beaches, championship golf at LPGA International, Daytona International Speedway, the new Daytona One entertainment, dining and shopping destination, and new Tanger Outlets with more than 80 retailers. Westlake, Mintos new community located in western Palm Beach County, is approved for 4,500 homes and two million square feet of commercial space. This innovative 3,800-acre community will feature a town center with shops, restaurants, entertainment, professional offices and recreational amenities. The community includes more than 2,000 acres of lakes, trails and open spaces. Plans call for employment centers, college campus and medical facilities. Minto also recently completed its third phase of The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples. The Isles is off to a great start. With more than 1,300 lots still remaining to be developed we look forward to a great future, adds Bullock. The Isles of Collier Preserve is located just four miles east of downtown Naples. Based on customer feedback reflecting a desire for larger homes, Minto recently announced Stock Signature Homes as a builder at The Isles of Collier Preserve. Stock will offer home plans on 90-foot wide lots that are in keeping with the contemporary coastal style of the existing community. We selected Stock to build the larger luxury homes because the company shares Mintos commitment to integrity, quality and excellent customer service, notes Bullock. Another of Mintos newest communities is LakePark at Tradition in Port St. Lucie. After selling out in the TownPark neighborhood at Tradition, Minto developed LakePark based on customer feedback for an age-restricted 55-and-better Minto community in Tradition. Minto recently held a grand opening for six new furnished models and a new sales office. The LakePark community will feature 644 singlefamily homes and paired villas. Founded in 1955, Minto is a familyowned business that has grown over the last 60 years into one of North Americas leading builders, with more than 80,000 homes built. Additional Minto communities throughout Florida include TwinEagles in Naples, Harbour Isle in Bradenton, Sun City Center in Tampa Bay, Laureate Park at Lake Nona and Festival in Orlando, Artesia in Sunrise, and Villas By The Sea in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.

Sienna Reserves three models propel sales success community hits 75% sold mark Its been a phenomenal couple of weeks for Sienna Reserve, the intimate enclave of 45 luxury custom single-family homes being developed by Zuckerman Homes on Livingston Road, between Vanderbilt Beach Road and Immokalee Road. The community recently held the grand opening for its three models and the public response has simply been extraordinary. Sienna Reserve is probably one of the busiest communities in the Naples area, stated Andy Zuckerman, President of Zuckerman Homes. Since we announced our models grand opening in mid-February, more than 700 people have visited our sales center and toured our homes. According to Zuckerman, visitor comments have been overwhelmingly positive. A number of visitors even walked into the sales center with checkbooks in hand and were anxious to put down a deposit immediately, he said. Our models, as well as the community itself, were exactly what these new homeowners were searching for. As of early March, 75 percent of the communitys 45 homes were sold. However, some of the best homesites are still available. But, time is of the essence considering the high interest in the community and the rapid rate of sales. Every visitor loves the open floor plans whether theyre looking for a single-story or two-story home, state Zuckerman. The three models, the Hibiscus and the Magnolia Flex, which are furnished, and the Rosewood, which is unfurnished, perfectly represent the quality and attention to detail found in every home built by Zuckerman Homes. The two-story Rosewood, the largest home offered at Sienna Reserve, is an incredible five-bedroom plus study and clubroom/five-and-ahalf-bath home with 4,971 square feet under air and 5,997 total square feet. The Magnolia Flex is a two-story, four-bedroom plus game room and media room/three full-bath/two half-bath home. It has 4,004 square feet under air and 4,855 total square feet. The Hibiscus is a single-story, threebedroom plus study/three-bath home with 2,566 square feet under air and 3,378 total square feet. A total of eight floor plans are available at Sienna Reserve. Prices start in the mid-$600s. For a limited opportunity, Sienna Reserve purchasers are eligible to receive complimentary temporary privileges to all Tiburon Golf Club amenities, and Sienna Reserve homeowners are eligible to become members of the exclusive Tiburon Golf Club, which is located only minutes away. In addition to the completion of its three models, Sienna Reserve also recently completed its grand entrance. It includes a palmand flower-lined brick-paver drive, an impressive gatehouse and a majestic stone and marble privacy entry wall with cascading water feature and glistening fountains. Several brick-paver roundabouts with water feature centerpieces are also positioned throughout Sienna Reserve. Buyers are also thrilled to learn only 14 of the communitys 30 acres are being developed. The remaining 16 acres comprise a freshwater lake and untouched nature preserve. The fact that no two homes back up to each other is another reason people love Sienna Reserve. According to Zuckerman, Sienna Reserves North Naples location has been a major selling point. Sienna Reserve is close to downtown Naples and its world-renowned shopping districts of Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South, said Zuckerman. Its also within minutes of Mercato, one of the most popular upscale shopping, dining and entertainment areas in town. In addition, the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, the Naples Pier, fine restaurants, Germain Arena, the site for many sporting and entertainment events, and the Southwest Florida International Airport are also in close proximity to the community. But the closest attraction is actually right next door to Sienna Reserve and just a brief walk or drive away. North Collier Regional Park, located immediately to our north, is one of the countys premier parks, stated Zuckerman. It features walking trails and boardwalks, fishing lakes, a fitness center complex, a world-class childrens museum and soccer and softball fields. This amazing park is an attraction every member of the family can enjoy. Sienna Reserves location isnt the communitys only major selling point, according to many purchasers. Its size is also playing a big role. Bigger is not always better, stated Zuckerman. Our research indicates buyers are looking for a more intimate community to call home.

boat 6 MARCH 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY With a father in the U.S. Navy, Scott Qurollo lived someplace with water whenever the family relocated. The 47-year-old Cape Coral boater says, though, This is probably the best boating area Ive ever lived in because of the variety of boats and natural beauty. Couple miles of undeveloped shoreline with destinations to cruise to and you find Southwest Florida lets visitors and residents alike choose from kayaks to cruises as well as fishing skiffs to offshore rigs. This is my seventh boat, Mr. Qurollo confesses about his 16-foot flats boat. Hes not atypical. The boating lifestyle in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties is one for people who are passionate about varied water-based interests fishing, diving, paddling, waterfront dining, nature photography and more. This region is not only a year-round experience for boaters, but also an affordable one. Its also one they can keep enjoying, regardless of which of lifes phases they are in. I still enjoy seeing the dolphins, says Van Hubbard, 67, of Placida. Known as Captain Van, he used to spend 300 days a year on the water and today is down to about every other day with his Venice Fishing Charters, and yet he can still find himself caught up in awe watching a bottlenose jump the wake of his 25-foot center console. The loons in the wintertime are mighty pretty, too. Retiree Bill Ring, of Naples, says, Even on a windy day, you can always find a place to fish in the backwaters and its always fun. Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties offer inland waterways, most of which are tucked behind sugar-sand islands that create a buffer and calm backwaters. Whereas Floridas east coast boaters need well-powered, expensive, large boats for blue-water Atlantic or crowded canal experiences, Southwest Florida boaters have it easy for any size craft. They can anchor out in an estuary, paddle up a creek, fish a grass flat or sail in the bathtub-like, blue-green Gulf. Plus the bottom here is forgiving, not that any boaters would want to cop to running aground. Instead they might phrase it like Mr. Qurollo does: The shallow water can be a challenge to navigate. Captain Van put it another way: Stay in the channel or go slow! Oh, and wear polarized sunglasses so the glare on the surface doesnt disguise a slightly submerged sandbar. Even if you do bump and get stuck, though, its likely a fellow boater will stop to help floats your WhateverSEE BOAT, 8 BY BETSY CLAYTONFlorida Weekly Correspondent SW Florida offers range of ways to enjoy water-based recreation I still enjoy seeing the dolphins ...

8 MARCH 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY BOATFrom page 6you out. From snowbirds and tourists to year-rounders, people here remark repeatedly how friendly the on-water experience is. Boaters are fortunate enough to find ample open space and less-crowded areas while also finding boating friends. Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties combined boast 87,850 registered vessels. And that doesnt include the non-motorized paddlecraft and small sailboats the state doesnt require be registered. The watery geography is not the only reason why, says Justin McBride, an Iowan turned Floridian who uses his 19-foot center console to fish with his sons or take his wife cruising to restaurants. Its the weather, Mr. McBride says. The climate is 24/7, 365 days a year. When I have people come from out of town, we put in at Pineland Marina, buy some shrimp, go out and cast-net some baitfish, then do a little fishing for trout or redfish, he says. After that, we go to one of the passes for grouper or maybe run to a restaurant for lunch. Then, after the afternoon, you finish the day off on the waterfront with cocktails. For people from the Midwest, thats a great day even for me, its a great day. His story tells it like it is: Pair the weather with easy boating access, and youre set. Boatlifts and docks throughout the region join ample boat ramps, marinas and waterfront properties. Residents here get a boating lifestyle that rivals anywhere else. An abundance of waterfront restaurants and parks with docks that accommodate all sizes of vessels buttress the regions status. A boaters paradiseTheres a reason images and articles about Southwest Floridas watery wonderland frequent national publications and websites. Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound and the Caloosahatchee, and the Ten Thousand Islands are showcased for both their natural, remote feeling and also their abundance of amenities for boaters, which makes things a lot easier to plan for an outing, regardless of whether a boater is a visitor, a newcomer or old-timer. BoatUS magazine, which has more than 500,000 subscribers, featured an island on the Intracoastal Waterway here on its cover with an article about affordable waterfront real estate for boat lovers. Field & Stream magazine the most legendary of outdoor sports and fishing publications named Pine Island Sound among its top North American fishing destinations. Ive had clients from all over the world and from Alaska to Hawaii, Captain Van says. Im trying to think of a state Ive not had people from and I cant. The Intracoastal Waterway meanders through these parts. That 3,000-mile route brings exposure to Southwest Floridas gentle waters, particularly during winter months. The Intracoastal runs for most of the length of the Eastern Seaboard, from its unofficial northern terminus at the Manasquan River in New Jersey, where it connects with the Atlantic Ocean at the Manasquan Inlet, then around the Gulf of Mexico to Brownsville, Texas. If boaters traveling down Floridas east coast dont want to navigate around South Florida and the Keys, then up the Gulf Coast, they cut across the state and Lake Okeechobee, ending up cruising down the Caloosahatchee River before heading north into Charlotte County and beyond. So even if youre not a boater, boat watching and checking out the port names on sterns is a pastime here. Heck, its a pastime everywhere if youre an avid boater. Check out your boating options in Southwest Florida:World-class fishingSouthwest Floridas waters offer an unrivaled fishing experience, thanks to the massive, shallow grass flats, brackish and saltwater opportunities, bountiful access and most importantly a trophy case of gamefish species anglers worldwide seek. The passes are home to the largest tarpon migration in the United States. Mr. Qurollo recalls a day his then-13year-old son hooked two consecutive tarpon while fishing the back bay, which surprised both of them since they were trying to catch pompano. I heard him yell, Dad! Dad! Dad! and I moved to start the engine because I knew wed have to chase it down. Then the fish jumped three times and took off, breaking the line. And that was just the first hook-up. The second tarpon jumped right in front of the boat five or six times you could almost touch the fish before it broke off. No one says fishing Southwest Florida is dull. Offshore reefs and the Gulf bring charter fishing and spearfishing fun all while surrounded by a huge concentration of protected goliath grouper. The sandy shores and barrier islands offer pier and beach fishing for flounder; the estuaries behind those islands feature crafty snook, redfish and sea trout as well as sought-after cobia, tripletail and again those tarpon. Tournaments happen regularly for inshore fish, tarpon and even for fish caught solely from paddlecraft. The premier kayak fishing tournament of the Gulf Coast, the Calusa Blueway Kayak Fishing Tournament, is an annual draw that brings in anglers from across the Southeastern United States. Anglers also have ways to get involved in introducing underprivileged children to fishing or various tournaments with charitable focuses. Mr. Ring, whose Bonita Bay Fish Club frequently helps children experience the water, lately has also been helping out his congregation. At church, the kids who read a childrens Bible from beginning to end get to request a wish when they finish and right now two of them want to go fishing. A good week for Mr. Ring? Taking his 23-foot Parker out two to three times, and making sure one of those trips is for fishing on a Saturday with a smiling youngster. Dive into adventureAlthough most people think of the Keys for diving in Florida, locals know the more than 20 artificial reefs here offer easy-to-access dives that put you face to face with massive goliath grouper as well as rare whale sharks. Its kind of an undiscovered reef source, Mr. McBride says. Many love the artificial reefs here. Lee County has its own reef guide and smartphone app to help tell divers and offshore anglers not only where to go but also what theyll find. Collier and Charlotte boaters can find equally appealing artificial reefs. A popular reef to dive is what locals refer to simply as The Mohawk. The U.S. Coast Guards Mohawk WPG-78 launched in 1934 and retired to its final resting place in the Gulf of Mexico on July 2, 2012. The ship, which had been docked in Fort Myers Beach, was towed 30 miles off Sanibel Island before being scuttled in 90 feet of water by six strategically placed charges meant to allow it to rest upright. The 165-foot vessel played a part in World War II combat operations, serving U.S. naval forces in the North Atlantic; during the war the ship was named the USS Mohawk CGC. In order to ensure no negative environmental impacts from its aging equipment, experts cleaned and prepared the ship prior to sending it on its last voyage. The USS Mohawk CGC Veterans Memorial Reef is the first military ship artificial reef to be a dedicated memorial to all United States veterans.Paddling pleasuresTheres the Paradise Coast Paddling Trail in Collier County, the Calusa Blueway in Lee County and also Charlotte Countys Blueway Trails system. All are encompassed in the Florida Paddling Trails network of watery adventure that spans the Sunshine State. Myriad options await canoeists, kayakers and stand-up paddleboarders (SUPers). A network of paddling clubs, regional race events and speakers series help connect newcomers and visitors alike. The explosion of paddle sports here is due in part to the intricate mangrove islands and shallow estuaries. Paddlers navigate tunnels through the mangroves that meander into lagoon-like areas a la Robinson Crusoe, with blush-colored roseate spoonbills feeding as if you werent even there. When people kayak here, they have more than a 360-degree experience: They can see into the water and watch for gamefish, starfish, lightning whelks and blue crab. They can look overhead and see frigate birds that soar like albatrosses and osprey and pelicans that plunge from skyscraper heights into the water. Waterfront diningPerhaps this is the most carefree of boating pastimes take the boat to a restaurant, enjoy a low-key atmosphere and waterfront view, then boat home. My boys love Cabbage Key for breakfast, Mr. McBride says. We like to go to Parrot Key (on San Carlos Island) for its great menu and they make a really good pepper sauce in small batches. Ask a boater to recount his or her recent outings and it sometimes sounds like a restaurant guide: Rumrunners in Cape Coral, Doc Fords at Fort Myers Beach, North Fort Myers Three Fishermen and on and on. Captain Van loves Stump Pass Marinas casual tiki bar atmosphere. I love to take out a 5to 10-year old, he says, then see them get their first fish and take it to Stump Pass Marina and the kid gets to eat what they caught for the first time in their life. Toward the South, Mr. Ring finds himself at Backwater Jacks on the Imperial River tucked into Bonita Bay or docked up at the end of Vanderbilt Bay. The Turtle Club Restaurant and the Lighthouse Restaurant are prime destinations. I like getting in the boat and going to one of those places for early dinner, then putt-putting to the pass to watch the sun set into the Gulf, he says. Nature-watchingIf there is one thing all boaters be they sailors, paddlers or powerboaters tend to mention, its the dolphin. Southwest Florida is home to one of the nations highest concentrations of bottlenose dolphins, and finding Flipper surface next to you is commonplace. Southwest Florida also is a bird-lovers delight. More than 300 species live here year-round, winter here or migrate through. Showy and huge white pelicans arrive in November, for example, and number in the flocks of 30 as they float near the Intracoastal Waterway, herding fish with efficiency before departing around Easter. Their cousins, brown pelicans, live here 365 days a year, with the males adding lovely yellow colors to their stately heads during breeding season. We keep a log book of what we see, says Mr. McBride of his two sons, ages 11 and 9. Sea turtles, rays, dolphins, manatees. We mark date, place, time. Even cool little things like crabs. Every day is different, and there is always something to see.Just joyridingHalf the fun is just powering up and hitting the throttle to watch the horizon unfold and feel the salt spray on your face. Counties offer boaters resources for getting around. In Lee, for example, the Natural Resources Department updated and reprinted the Lee County Boaters Guide. The countys smartphone app, which is free for Anroid and iPhone users, also is being upgraded. It will work faster and provide more functionality, said Lee Countys Justin McBride. We added tides, improved the weather function, and other items. Still, Southwest Floridas waterways are easy to navigate, Capt. Hubbard says. In fact, there are so many options, its difficult to consider doing anything else. You better like boating and fishing if you coming down here (to visit) that or golf; those are your two choices, he says. But forget the golf part. I dont see how you can beat boating. The beaches, the frequency you can go boating, birds and fish, and the shorelines variety from mangroves to McMansions. COURTESY PHOTOWorld-class fishing is to be had in Southwest Florida waters.

If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or another, cherish very nearly the same feelings toward the ocean with me. Ishmael, MobyDickPeople move to boats, it seems, for as many reasons as they move anywhere, but choosing life on the water suggests practical and less-tangible personal and philosophical differences. Ishmael goes to live at sea on a whaling ship for one because he has run out of money, but also because of these feelings he has about the ocean: (W)henever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. Others have their own reasons. A retired couple, Jerry Anderson and his wife, Betsy, for years snowbirded on their boat at Burnt Store Marina during the winter. But after their home south of Chicago was destroyed in a fire, they moved year-round onto Poulet de la Mer (Chicken of the Sea), a 44-foot, 1987 DeFever trawler. Yeah its a lot different but its better, Ms. Anderson said. We have no yard to mow, no snow to shovel. Taking care of all the lovely teak on the deck, the rails and doors is a lot of work. Thats another thing live-aboards have in common; theyre often working on their boats. You could spend 40 hours a week teaking, Mr. Anderson said. Also, live-aboard communities at Burnt Store and all over, at Marco Island Marina and the Fort Myers Yacht Basin and Marinatown Yacht Harbour, tend to watch out for each other. A group of live-aboards at a marina might be a little country of their own, and the docks little cities. Mr. Anderson, who is 73, is known as the mayor of R Dock since hes been there the longest and keeps neighborhood watch. I know whos supposed to be there and who isnt and, I should add, Im obnoxious enough to ask, he said. And live-aboards have backgrounds as diverse as their reasons for calling a boat home. We dont find out much about Ishmaels background in Moby-Dick. He describes himself as another orphan. Back in the Chicago area before they retired, Mr. Anderson said he was just a businessman, thats all, nothing really exciting. Ms. Anderson worked to raise funds for a university. They occasionally take Poulet de la Mer out for a cruise but often remain at the marina. Mr. Anderson describes it as kind of a two-bed, two-bath condo that floats.Cruising Thats another thing live-aboards will sometimes say, that there are two kinds: those who for the most part live at a marina and those like the Smiths who prefer cruising. One of the most challenging moments Rick and Deb Smith recalled was traveling in their trawler from Florida to the Bahamas through 12to 14-foot confused seas, with waves coming from different directions. Its horrifying, said Ms. Smith, 63. Especially in the dark at night. The boat is seaworthy to that and larger seas, said Mr. Smith, 72. Its the comfort of the occupants thats the issue. Stuff just gets thrown all over. Getting exercise while traveling by boat can also be an issue, so they use weights, exercise videos and a step machine on board. And Ms. Smiths sister helps collect their mail and forwards it to them periodically. The Smiths and their black lab Izzy cruise mid-November through April on Broulee (Australian aborigine for island in the sea), a 1994 42-foot Kadey-Krogen trawler. Summers they spend living on land in Minnesota. Marco Island Marina has been their home base for the last few years, but the freedom to cruise wherever they want to go by water was one of the things that pulled them aboard. We both grew up on the lakes, Ms. Smith said. We both love water. Water is in our DNA. Mr. Smith added, Its the challenge I think also of being proficient in handling a journey and the vessel so it functions properly it gets you to your destination. Formerly custom homebuilders and general contractors in the Twin Cities area, they bought the boat in 2001 and three years later decided to make it their home for the greater part of the year. It was two things, Mr. Smith said. The economy was questionable. It was time to get out of the business, and in our words work was getting in the way of cruising. The Smiths neighbors, Jacquie and Marc Wertzberger, live on Bad Kitty, a 1997 50-foot Carver motor yacht. One of the two cats they travel with, Mr. Kitty, leaped gracefully over their welcome mat onto the dock and relaxed by a piling. Key West is one of their favorite locations. There, you might find them at Capt. Tonys Saloon. Both from Indiana, Mr. Wertzberger, 60, is full-time retired. Being at home, he does most of the cooking. Ms. Wertzberger, 45, is a nurse practitioner.

FLORIDA WEEKLY MARCH 2016 11 They spent a few decades together living in a house in Indiana. Downsizing from the 4,500-square-foot space to about 1,000 square feet on a boat was a challenge, Ms. Wertzberger said. She missed the closet space. But they agreed to give it six months and both decided We wish wed have done this before. Some three years later, they are happy to stay afloat. A few boats down, in the Nolls trawler, a freshly baked apple pie sat cooling on the kitchen countertop. Andy Noll, 63, prefers the oven on Barracuda, their 49-foot Grand Banks trawler, to the one she had in their house on Marco Island. The Nolls lived there for 16 years before selling their house last year. Their dogs Harley, Hunter and Minnie make their love of ocean-going travel clear, jumping aboard enthusiastically before settling down. The Nolls formerly lived in upstate New York, where she was a schoolteacher and he a plumber. People say, Where do you live? said Mr. Noll, 67. I can say Anywhere I want.MarinatownRoughly half the boats docked at Marinatown Yacht Harbour, which stretches for a half-mile along an inlet on the Caloosahatchee River, are live-aboard. On the morning of Feb. 18, Debbie Hall had just gotten home to the boat from her shift as a school bus driver. Fresh flowers and tomatoes grow in pots out on the dock in front of their trawler. She and her husband were also celebrating their 38th wedding anniversary that day. Ms. Hall, 57, and her husband Jon, 62, live on Jonny Angel, a 38-foot Gulfstar named for their two children. The water is my favorite place in the world, Ms. Hall said. The ocean actually. A retired steamfitter from Indianapolis with long-standing family ties to Florida, Mr. Hall said living on a boat was something he envisioned long ago. When youre young and dont have any money you say, one day, one day, he said. Well 40-some years later I had that day. Mark DeCicco, 58 on March 5, lives a walk down the dock from the Halls. Personal upheaval in his life, including a divorce and the loss of his brother to cancer, led him to consider pursing a dream deferred. So two years ago he bought Osprey, a Her-Shine trawler. Its a welcome contrast to the years he spent in an office as a banker. I do have a necktie in my boat, he admitted. He has cruised along the The Great Loop, which, not unlike the Appalachian Trail, is a well-known journey for boaters. Altogether it draws a watery line inland around the Eastern United States from the tip of Florida up to the Great Lakes. One fall after the leaves had turned he cruised through the Dismal Swamp Canal. A hand-dug waterway with ties to George Washington, it connects Chesapeake Bay with Albemarle Sound. He appreciates the celestial view on dark nights away from any city. I had a friend on the boat, he recalled. She said, Whats going on with the sky? Theres something wrong with the sky. Shed never seen the Milky Way.Fort Myers Yacht BasinOne of the largest live-aboard communities in Southwest Florida, the city Yacht Basin is downtown on the Caloosahatchee River. Roughly 70 or 80 vessels are under live-aboard status here at any one time, estimates dockmaster Leif Hans Lustig. He calls it a great place, a really fun, public-access, workingmans marina. It was built in 1937. Mr. Lustig has been dockmaster for going on 25 years now. Just getting my feet wet, he said. Chris and Rick Hood epitomize the self-sufficiency and sense of freedom that many live-aboards share. Theyve docked their sailboat at the Yacht Basin, for now, while Mr. Hood is fighting cancer. Before that they lived on a hook, dropping anchor offshore as some live-aboards prefer. When youre living on a hook you dont accumulate, but when you tie down to a dock you start to accumulate things you dont need, said Ms. Hood, 59. Out there on the hook you dont have any stress. You dont let the world bother you. It also allows for unplanned travel. We dont make plans, never make plans, Ms. Hood said. Solar panels and a wind generator on The Fair Catch, their 1976 37-foot Irwin sailboat, also help generate electricity. It has a diesel engine but Ms. Hood prefers not to use it. Crossing the Gulf you just throw up the sails and have at it, she said. The Hoods grew up in Detroit, together since they were teenagers. He went into the Marine Corps at 17 and put in 21 years in the service. Wherever they were stationed she worked odd jobs such as a welder, and once drove a cab in Okinawa, Japan. After his retirement they pursued adventures as gold prospectors in Alaska and California. Theyve been living on a boat off and on for the better part of the last two decades now. Their daughter Penny Hood-Price, 40, moved down from Dallas to help out her dad. She, too, plans to live at the Yacht Basin. She is both nervous and excited about getting her own boat, a fixer-upper. Its all about TLC when it comes to boats, she said. She described her parents stories as epic adventure throughout many episodes of a single life. Thats probably true of many liveaboards, but few as much as the Hoods.

Its all work, no play for someLong before most of our morning commutes, some local residents have already put in nearly half a days work, pulling nets, pots and lines from the water to inspect the days catch. Come lunchtime, they might be heading back to fisheries in Isles of Capri, Fort Myers Beach and Everglades City loaded or not with a bounty of pink Gulf shrimp, stone crab claws, blue crabs and fish that will appear on the nights menu at local restaurants. Some, especially shrimpers, might not return home for days, even weeks. Its all part of the job. Those who make a living on the water are at the mercy of the sea, earning wages not by the hour but by the catch. It can be a tough life for some; a fun day on the water for others who have worked hard to build a business as a fishing guide. Every year from Oct. 15 to May 15, Trulucks fleet of boats pingpong from pot to pot around local waters, checking for legal-sized stone crabs lured into the traps by pig scraps. Crabbers remove just one claw from each creature. The delicacy (pound-per-pound its more expensive than lobster) will later be sorted by size from medium to colossal at the fisheries, then steamed to red perfection with a black tip, packed in ice and sent to the Naples restaurant and its handful of affiliates throughout Florida and Texas. Some years are good, others not so good. The 2014-15 stone crab season was one of the lowest yields on record; the highest in terms of what diners shelled out (over $31 million). A good year is considered 3 million pounds; however, crabbers in Florida harvested just 2.2 million pounds last season. About 20 percent of the annual statewide harvest occurs in Collier County and crabbers concentrated in the Ten Thousand Islands and Everglades City. Trulucks is so committed to fresh stone crab it bought its fleet, ensuring a 24-hour window from trap to table.A captains lifeEnglewood fishing captain Jamie Allen may not work as hard now as he did when he moved to Florida in 2000. He spent the first few years fishing with other captains and learning the water. In this business, it takes a good five years to get to the point you know every day you can get fish, he says. You put a lot of pressure on yourself. After all, its not good for anglers to pay hundreds of dollars without a fish tale to relay afterward. Capt. Allen jokes his wife tricked him into moving to Florida from Colorado, where he owned a telecommunications company after two tours of duty with the Coast Guard. Long story short, she was out looking at real estate while I was on a boat, he says. We met in California and she wanted to be back by the water. I asked her what I would do in Florida, and she suggested I become a fishing guide. I tell everybody, Im the oddball: an electrical engineer whos a fishing captain. Capt. Allen bought a skiff soon after the familys arrival in Florida and spent nearly every day on the water. Hes been fly fishing since age 6 in Vermont and now specializes in saltwater fly fishing, even caught a 110-pound tarpon in Pine Island Sound during his first few months here. Ive never caught anything that big before, he says with a laugh. Tarpon are what a lot of my customers want to catch but it varies throughout the year depending on the water temperatures. Id say tarpon is the meat and potatoes of my business. They start jumping and it makes your heart pump. Capt. Allen now has a 17-foot flats boat, launches from Boca Grande and guides 200 days a year. Most of his excursions are to clear back-bay waters. He spends another 50 days on the water scouting, finding new spots and seeing what the fish are doing. I was working really hard and before I knew it I didnt have to call anyone. They were calling me. The majority of his clients are fly fishermen and 95 percent catch and release. Being a captain means recognizing a customers casting skills and positioning the boat for optimal angling. Capt. Allen has established a loyal customer base; some book the same time each year. Among his well-known clients are golfer and 2016 European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke, former Baltimore Colts quarterback Bert Jones, and the owner of the Cleveland Indians. We fish for snook, cobia, albacore, flounder, jack, pompano and tripletail whatever makes the client happy, he says. The goal is to have fun and try to catch some fish. My office has a very nice view, Capt. Allen says.

Big-water communities cater to sailors, paddlers, boaters, skiersLiving largeMany Southwest Florida residents enjoy a waterfront lifestyle miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. A select few Southwest Florida communities provide a rare opportunity to live on big water hundreds of acres of freshwater lakes offering sailing, paddling, motorboating and water-skiing right in the backyard. Among the newest water-centric communities is Naples Reserve, located 1.5 miles away from the explosive growth at the intersection of U.S. 41 South and Collier Boulevard. Originally planned as a golf course community, developer iStar reimagined the propertys 688 acres, creating a lifestyle dedicated to open water. Not only are most homes, which take a step back to Old Florida, Key West and traditional Southern coastal architecture, on the water, many of the communitys amenities are geared to life on the lake 22 of them. Naples resident Jim Dill saw the potential during his initial visit to Naples Reserve. Most of its 245 acres of manmade lakes were built, as were a handful of model homes. For Mr. Dill, the community was a nostalgic return to his childhood, growing up north of Chicago near Lake Michigan. I was intrigued by what I saw, he says. I could tell that this was a very special piece of property. I sensed the tranquility of the water and the positive impact on mood and well-being, and now that were here I feel it. Wife Wanda also thought Naples Reserve was a great find. The couple built a new home and relocated from another community in November, becoming Naples Reserves first residents. Their miniature golden-doodle, Chelsea, is the communitys first canine. The Dills home is just a block from the 125-acre Eagle Lake, which offers a destination island complete with tiki hut and provides ample shoreline for a clubhouse, tennis center and kayak docks. The communitys largest lake also borders a milelong stretch of the 76,000-acre Picayune Strand State Forest to the north. Kayak and paddleboards will be available for use at the Outrigger Center. The Dills had their first opportunity to experience Naples Reserve on the water in early February. We kayaked around the island and it was nice out there, says Mr. Dill. Were looking forward to paddling along the edge of the forest and seeing whats out there. Living along the waters edge also has its benefits, including plenty of wildlife sightings, big sky moments and a calming effect. Theres no question in my mind that water de-stresses, Mr. Dill says. It has a positive effect on your mental, emotional and physical well-being. Its so peaceful and restorative. Because of the open water we get big sky. Its probably better than living on the ocean because its private and not congested. I feel like Im 100 miles away from everything even though were five minutes from Collier Boulevard, Publix and new restaurants. People are always pleasantly surprised how nice it is once they get in here. The couple has captured the wildlife and many of those big sky moments in photos rainbows and moonrises reflected in the Eagle Lake and the small lake behind their home, dramatic dusk skies and eagles, alligators and possibly a Florida panther. We recently saw a roseate spoonbill and an osprey flying overhead with a fish, says Mr. Dill. This is our happy place. Its why we live here. IStar is currently building Naples Reserves waterfront amenities, which will include a clubhouse with a beachfront, two swimming pools and sand volleyball courts, and a tennis and pickleball complex along Eagle Lake. The Quarry on Immokalee Road was also created around big water 230and 90-acre lakes used for swimming, boating, fishing, water-skiing and wakeboarding. The community has three lodges, including the Lake Lodge along the waters edge, and offers a white-sand beach, two pools, waterfront dining and bars. The 18-hole golf course meanders along the lakefront. Like the Dills, Andy and Jill Visinski experienced an aha moment when they discovered Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club and its 700 acres of freshwater lakes four years ago. The Sandy Hook, Connecticut, couple, often joined by their daughters, 20 and 22, spend most of their time at Miromar water-skiing, a pastime they also enjoy during Northern summers. The Visinskis originally purchased a Florida vacation home on Longboat Key but soon discovered the Gulf of Mexico wasnt exactly the best venue for one of their favorite activities. They scoured Central to Southwest Florida in search of a community more conducive to their water needs. We looked around Orlando but the area didnt really agree with us, says Mr. Visinski. We decided to look farther south in Fort Myers. We visited Miromar Lakes and saw the activities, amenities and lifestyle and couldnt look back. Every community we looked at after, we always compared to Miromar. Eventually we asked ourselves why we were even bothering to look anymore. The Visinskis purchased a coach home in Valencia and enjoy the easy access to Miromars lakes, three miles of beachfront and a water-based lifestyle. Getting on the water is as simple as calling marine services and their boat is awaiting their arrival. Its such a social community, says Mr. Visinski. We often stop, have a drink and chat with other residents, then work our way out to the water. Miromar caters to a waterfront lifestyle for its residents and members. Its Beach Club and open-air, under-roof Blue Water Beach Grill overlook the water. Residents also enjoy a private dining room with French doors opening to the beach and Lake Como. The communitys main amenity areas offer beachfront cabanas and docks for residents who arrive on their boat or take the water taxi from the Marina on the Peninsula to the beach club. The open water is a popular destination for swimmers, kayakers, paddleboarders and anglers. Miromars marine services watersports concierge offers guided fishing excursions, sunset cruises and rentals, including motorboats, sailboats, kayaks and paddleboards. Some of Miromars neighborhoods offer private beachfront and many provide the opportunity for a dock for a boat-in-the-backyard lifestyle. For water-skiers like the Visinskis, theres also a freestyle slalom course near the Florida Gulf Coast University campus. We have fun water-skiing, says Mr. Visinski. Its also great exercise. I figure I can go to the gym for 45 minutes or get a full-body workout on the water in five minutes. The couple is also eager to re-experience windsurfing on the clubs recently acquired equipment. I cant wait to get back down and try it. We never get tired of being on the water, says Mr. Visinski. From the moment we bought a home in Miromar weve probably spent more money changing our airplane tickets because we always get here and decide to stay another day or two. Its like a little oasis and we enjoy all the sports the community offers.

Weighing extended warranties on boat engines BOATUSIts acknowledged among boat owners that boat engines have improved in quality and reliability over the years, and backing that up are recent surveys from J.D. Power reporting a steady decrease in the number of reported problems in marine engines. So is buying an extended-service contract worth the money today? The Boat Owners Association of the United States looked at the issue and has these tips: An extended warranty really isnt a warranty: An extended warranty is not a warranty at all but rather an insurance policy that pays for repairs if the breakdown, failure or failed component is specified as covered by the policy. On the other hand, a new boat warranty covers much more, is included in the cost of the boat, and offers legal protections to the boat buyer. Not everything is covered: An engine extended-service contract covers specific items only. One BoatUS member found this out the hard way when his third-party extended-service contract left him $1,300 short after paying out of pocket for an engine control unit replacement job on his 30-foot powerboat. The ECU was deemed consequential damage and not covered as a result of the original problem, an overcharging alternator. The real cost of repairs could be higher: Extended-service contracts typically come with deductibles, some dont cover engine removal, and they often limit haul-out coverage or, in the case of manufacturer-backed programs, will only pay if you purchased higher levels of coverage. Check the contracts details on how the company handles deductibles and consequential damage. Kill the overlap: If you decide to buy an extended-service contract, find one that begins after the manufacturers warranty expires and never be pressured into buying one the same day you buy the boat. Youve usually got up to at least nine months to make a decision. It should also be transferable, which adds to the boats value. Manufacturer benefits: Consumers often get a better deal on engine service contracts that bear the name of the manufacturer because the dealers markup is limited. And while these service contracts take their name from the engines manufacturer, independent companies could underwrite them. However, you still are likely to get a better deal regardless because manufacturer programs often have substantially better coverage and more flexibility. Dont forget prices are negotiable, and some engine manufacturers sell contracts direct, bypassing dealers. Approval needed: While it is an extra step, extended-service contracts require preauthorization before work begins. Fuel for thought on gassing up your boat BOATUSUnlike an automobile, recreational boats have special safety needs when it comes to refueling. Stern-drive or inboard-powered boats have closed engine compartments where volatile gasoline vapors dont easily dissipate, and older gasoline powered boats are the riskiest to refuel as their brittle fuel hoses can crack, leaving gas in the bilge after a fill-up. Boat Owners Association of the United States has these tips to ensure a noneventful refueling: Disembark: As soon as youre safely tied up to the fuel dock, everyone should hop off the boat. Turn off everything: Shut down all engines, electric motors and galley stoves and turn off the battery at the main switch. Button it up: Close all compartments, cabin doors, ports, windows and hatches. Dont smoke: Ensure all smoking materials are fully extinguished and dont leave a stogie smoldering up on the bridge. No static: Keep the fuel nozzle in contact with the fuel deck fill to prevent static sparks (and dont confuse the fuel fill with a rod holder, water tank or holding tank fill, which happens more often than you think). Stay with your boat, and dont use the hands-free clip. Portable tanks should be removed and placed on the fuel dock before filling. Dont overfill: To prevent fuel from spewing from the fuel tank vent, dont fill the tank to the very top try to know how much fuel you need, and keep an absorbent pad handy. A tank that is overfilled can allow fuel to blow back or expand and be forced out of the tank vent as temperatures rise or seas kick up. Clean up: Replace the tank cap, open all hatches and doors, wipe up any spills and dispose of any fuel-soaked absorbents properly. Hanging them on a rail to allow the gasoline to evaporate may seem like a good idea until a guest decides to smoke. Use the blower: Operate the bilge blower (if equipped) for at least four minutes. Sniff test: Smell the bilge and engine compartment before starting the engine. Note that a bilge blower wont remove vapors from spilled gasoline, so use your nose first before you turn the key. Investigate any issues: If the engine wont start right up after refueling, stop cranking and investigate. In most cases of refueling-related accidents, the operator tried multiple times to start the engine before an explosion occurred.

For boaters, the best things in life are free the serenity of open water, a breeze filling a sail or a fishing hole that beckons. And best yet, even the BoatUS Foundations online state boating safety course wont cost you a penny. As boating season continues here in Southwest Florida and ramps up in more Northern climates, the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators and the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water encourage boaters to take a no-cost boating safety education course as part of the Spring Aboard Campaign. The foundation offers online courses approved for 34 states. Its central to our mission that boating safety education be accessible to anyone, so offering this free course is vitally important to what we do, said Amanda Perez, BoatUS Foundation director of education. The Spring Aboard Campaign is a great way to raise awareness. More than a million boaters have taken the foundations courses since 1997. We realize that the costs of our passion can add up quickly and we want to do what we can to make it easier for boaters to get on the water, Ms. Perez said. The BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is a national leader promoting safe, clean and responsible boating. Funded primarily by donations from the more than half-million members of Boat Owners Association of the United States), the nonprofit provides innovative educational outreach directly to boaters and anglers with the aim of reducing accidents and fatalities, increasing stewardship of Americas waterways and keeping boating safe for all. A range of boating safety courses including 34 free state courses can be found at If you havent freed up time to fix the important things on your recreational boat, such as having a fully working VHF radio on board, do it. If you have a basic VHF, checking the connections for corrosion, inspecting the antenna and doing a simple radio check may be all that it takes. But if you have a newer Digital Selective Calling VHF, this is be the time to ensure its lifesaving, onebutton mayday feature is fully working. This allows anyone on the boat to simply press a button that gives rescuers near pinpoint location and identification information, greatly speeding rescue times. However, the DSC functions on new radios only work if a Maritime Mobile Service Identity number has been entered into the radio. Further, the U.S. Coast Guard Reports that approximately 80 percent of the one-b utton distress calls from DSC VHF radios it gets each year do not contain vessel position information, meaning that rescuers cannot effectively respond. Boaters can take two simple steps to make sure their DSC radio will provide rescuers with the information they need, according to the Boat Owners Association of the United States: Connect the DSC-VHF to the GPS/ chartplotter. While some of the newest, handheld DSC VHF radios have GPS built in, most fixed-mount DSC VHF radios must be connected to an external chartplotter in order to broadcast location information. This single, critical wired connection increases your margin of safety a thousand times over by allowing rescuers to find you quickly. While there have been challenges with a uniform, industrywide plug-in connector to make it easy for do-it-yourselfers, having both the radio and chartplotter of the same brand and each manufactured within several years of each other makes it easier. Taking the time to open up both operating manuals is also a good first step you likely wont need to know how to read a wiring diagram as instructions are in plain text. Most electronics manufacturers also have customer support phone lines ready to help. And if youre still having trouble? Get a professional electronics installer to do the job. After all, arent your familys lives worth a relatively small $150 service fee to have a pro do it right? To find one near you, ask at your local marine electronics retailer, marina or go online at www. Get a free Maritime Mobile Service Identity number that identifies your boat. The MMSI number is a bit like a phone number for your boat. Having one helps verify an emergency, identifies your boat to rescuers, and cuts down on the instances of false alarms, ensuring that critical rescue resources will be available when you need them. BoatUS offers MMSI numbers for free at, along with an easy-to-download tutorial on DSC VHF radios and how this drastically improved technology is saving lives as a part of the U.S. Coast Guards Rescue 21 System.

Environmental organizations in Charlotte County offer plenty of eco-adventures and the opportunity to make a splash while learning about the unique ecosystems along Lemon Bay and the back-bay waters between Englewood Beach and the mainland. For paddlers and boaters, the 10-mile stretch of Placida Road between McCall and Gasparilla roads is a water wonderland, offering numerous public park and marina launch sites, some providing immediate immersion in scenic mangrove tunnels. Join a wading, snorkeling or paddleboard tour and youll learn all about the Lemon Bay, Cape Haze and Charlotte Harbor aquatic preserves and the creatures that inhabit them.Splash in the seagrassIf second-graders in Charlotte County could take the plunge into Lemon Bay, I figured so could I. But instead of being the creepy interloper on a school field trip, I joined the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center on one of its public seagrass wading eco-adventures last summer. I didnt even mind getting a little wet or a possible encounter with a spider crab or giant red hermit crab scurrying across my feet in the murky brackish water (thank goodness for water shoes). CHEC offers several seagrass wading programs monthly, occasionally at Ponce de Leon Park in Punta Gorda and other county parks, but most of them from Cedar Point Park in Englewood. Lemon Bay, part of the larger Charlotte Harbor Estuary the second largest in Florida is a nursery for creatures that will one day grow to be bigger creatures and venture to deeper waters. Would-be waders in my group ranged from tots to seniors, including a large group spending a family reunion thighand waist-deep in the bay. Before earning our nets and buckets, CHEC naturalist Martha Clemente introduced us to the plants and creatures that favor the warmer temperatures of the shallow waters, including the very territorial dwarf and lion seahorse that spend their lives camouflaged within a few square feet of the same seagrass bed. She also talked about the importance of mangroves, marshes and grasses that serve as natural filters and determine the health of the water. The bay is home to sea cucumbers, urchins, horseshoe crabs, 400 different types of fish and gooey soft-bodied animals and live scallops with iridescent blue eyes, she told us. Finding a diversity of species tells us its a healthy place. Earlier in the month, waders netted a juvenile sea trout and an Atlantic spadefish. We never have seen them before in the bay, Ms. Clemente said. Its always different each trip. The park is located on a peninsula formed by Ainger and Oyster creeks and after a short walk along a sand and shell path from the main building we arrive at the wading site a wooden deck with steps disappearing into the water, stirred up from recent storms. Before stepping in, Ms. Clemente reminded us: Youre about to meet these creatures firsthand. Be gentle. Theyre little and some are babies. The water is bathtub-warm and the sun is hot on the skin by 10 a.m. Scoop and swirl, inspect and scoop again. My net glides through the water. Nothing. Others are squealing with delight after discovering shrimp, lightning whelks, a juvenile flounder and sea squirts in their nets. I feel like Charlie Brown, nothing but net and some rocks. Oh my gosh Daddy, its a crab, one child screamed, as if rubbing it in. Ms. Clemente placed each creature in magnifying viewers that are passed around.

Cedar Point Environmental Center, 2300 Placida Road, Englewood, (941) 475-0769, Fun fact: The copper-based blue blood of the horseshoe crab was once used to test drug purity.Snorkeling the soundTwo days after my wading excursion Im on a motorboat. Destination: Gasparilla Sound. During the quick trip from Gasparilla Marina to the turquoise waters near the old Boca Grande railroad trestle, staff from the Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserve and its affiliate state organizations discuss the variety of seagrasses turtle, shoal and manatee and the importance they play in the preserves health and habitat. The conversation is momentarily halted by a trio of dolphins breaking through the surface. CHAP introduced its snorkeling ecoadventures last summer to test the waters, so to speak. This year its planning to offer public snorkeling trips weekly from May to September, weather permitting, according to Heather Stafford, manager. Dates and fees will be determined soon. The program provides participants with an opportunity to explore a portion of the 180,000 acres of submerged land from Lemon Bay to Matlacha Pass. As the boat glides to a stop at our destination between the Boca Grande Causeway and the trestle-cum-fishing pier, we exit the boat into water thats as close to crystalclear as its going to get. The gentle ebb and flow of the sea stirs up the sand slightly but its possible from the surface to see 4 feet down to sand and seagrass beds, some permanently scarred by boat propellers. The sea isnt quiet, either, playing its own soundtrack, graveling and crackling above the sand and silent over the grass, the sunlight seemingly swaying with the soft waves. A school of pinfish shimmer momentarily before suddenly changing direction in sync. Barnacles have found a home along the wooden pilings of the water-worn trestle. A spider crab scurries out of sight and Im a little awed and creeped out by its alien appearance. You quickly learn to be patient, wait and study the sand and the grass. Like chameleons, crabs and other creatures blend in with their backgrounds and decorator urchins collect shells to hide their rich red color from predators. I dig out a 1-pound quahog clam from the sand and take home a treasure an old glass bottle covered with tiny shells.

Boats charted course for Southwest Florida development BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentTheir names evoke a long-ago America, a time before planes, helicopters and airconditioned cars with stereos. There was the Anah C. and the Uneeda, the Dixie, Gladys and the Thomas A. Edison. They were steamboats that plied Southwest Florida waters in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, stitching the area together. They were used for commerce, tourism and transportation. Even before the Wright Brothers built the first airplane in 1903 or the first railroad chugged into Fort Myers in 1904, steamboats chuffed up and down Floridas west coast. They huffed and puffed into ports from Punta Gorda to St. James City, from Fort Myers to Naples, and points north and south and even east. Boats have always been supremely important in Southwest Florida. The ancient Calusa, who resided in the region before the arrival of Spanish explorers in the 16th century, used canoes to get around their coastal empire. Early Europeans such as Ponce de Leon arrived here by sailboats. The supremacy of boats remained the case after the Calusa died off and Spain no longer owned Florida. That was certainly the case as Southwest Florida began developing in the late 1800s. The development wouldnt have been possible without steamboats, which began traveling the Caloosahatchee on a regular basis in the 1880s. Boats of other types were also important in those years. A sailboat named the Wallowy brought a big-city writer from Harpers Monthly to Southwest Florida in the 1880s on an adventure that helped spread the word about this area. Thomas A. Edison, the man and not the boat, first came here in 1885 via a boat. But it was a yacht called the Jeannette and not a steamboat. Steamboats flourished in Southwest Florida for a few decades straddling the turn of the 20th century. As in any industry, whether cars or planes or computers it takes spunk and know-how and drive to build a company. Thats where the Menge Brothers and Kinzie Brothers came into the picture. Both sets of brothers operated lines of boats delivering everything from oranges to postcards to people.Southwest Floridas steam era In 1971, a News-Press reporter named Pat Ammann profiled local steamboat history in a series of articles. At that time there were still people alive who remembered the steamboats. Even then, 45 years ago, the steamboat days evoked nostalgia, a vision of a distant past. That was the case with Dorothy McLaughlin, who sounded downright poetic talking about the Gladys, one of those steamboats. A pretty boat so graceful it looked like a gull coming down the river, Ms. McLaughlin told the paper in 1971. Although trains were commonplace elsewhere in America around the turn of the 20th century, that wasnt the case in this corner of America. The Transcontinental Railroad linked Americas east and west coasts together in 1869. But rail service didnt reach Fort Myers until 1904, 35 years later. Early settlers and visitors needed boats. Steamers such as the Clara and the St. Lucie started working Southwest Florida waters in the 1880s. The St. Lucie had previously operated on the body of water most commonly associated with steamboats the Mississippi River. Ms. Ammann noted in her 1971 series on steamboats that the St. Lucie was a 0-foot sternwheeler with two slim smokestacks by its pilothouse. It had 24 staterooms, a dining hall and running water. Steamboats need people to operate them and manage their cargo and sell tickets and load and unload freight. They needed entrepreneurs to succeed. The Menge Brothers, Conrad and Fred, fit the description. They were smart and hard-working and formed the Menge Brothers Steamboat Line in 1888. It became the biggest line on the Caloosahatchee. A historian named Lawrence E. Will once wrote of them as the king bees of the Caloosahatchee River trade. In 1971, Conrad Menge Jr. talked about trips on the river in the 1920s with his father. He referred to the river as the highway from Fort Myers to Lake Okeechobee. Steamers would stop along the river for wood, Mr. Menge told The NewsPress in 1971. We had contracts with people to pile the wood along the banks for pickup. The Menge Brothers owned a steamer named the Suwanee, which was spelled slightly different than the Suwannee River.

Connie Menge 22 MARCH 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY

The Suwanee was used for sightseeing excursions all the way to Miami. The route took the boat through Lake Okeechobee. While the Menge Brothers focused on river business, the Kinzie Brothers Steamer Line worked the coastal trade. Their business included delivering mail for the U.S. Post Office. George and Andrew Kinzie knew the boat business. A third brother, Eric, started a nursery. The nautical Kinzies could take everything of nearly everything in their line of work. Both had earned Masters mariners licenses, author Karl H. Grismer noted in his 1949 book, The Story of Fort Myers. Their fleet included, Mr. Grismer reported, boats named the Success, Gladys and the Dixie. The Dixie could carry 200 passengers. That wasnt all their boats carried. Mr. Grismer wrote that at its peak, the Kinzie Line carried more than 150,000 crates of vegetables annually in addition to thousands of cases of fruit. Eventually, of course, cars and trucks and highways came and bridges were built and that meant the end of the steamship lines.Thomas A. Edison, the steamerThe arrival in 1901 of a steamboat called the Thomas A. Edison was big news in Fort Myers. The weekly Fort Myers Press trumpeted the news with this headline: Queen of the Caloosahatchee. In a story dated Nov. 14, 1901, a reporter wrote about traveling on the boat. We took a trip to Alva on the new steamer last Saturday to see how she would conduct herself on the crooked river with its sharp turns, the reporter wrote in a story that did not carry a byline. Capt. Connie Menge was at the wheel, and although a little rusty in piloting steamers on the river, had little difficulty in making the bends, the Edison answered her tiller nicely. The run was made to Alva under slow bell in three hours and 10 minutes, making every landing between the two places, and her regular running time can easily be reduced to 3 hours. The Thomas A. Edison was an impressive sight. On account of her length, 92 feet, it was predicted that she could not make the sharp turns of the river between Denaud and Thompson but she waltzed around those short bends, The Press reported on her maiden voyage, It remained a fixture on the river until Jan. 30, 1914, when it was destroyed in the Lee County Packing House Fire. A boy named Robert Dupree watched it go up in flames and 58 years later, in 1972, he shared his memories of that night with The News-Press. I was watching a merry-go-round run by a steam engine, Mr. Dupree said. Suddenly someone yelled fire. Flames were coming out through the side of the packinghouse. The fire spread onto the Thomas Edison which was docked next to the building.National publicityAn intrepid reporter from Harpers New Monthly magazine visited Southwest Florida in the 1880s and wrote a story that was published in the January 1885 issue. He couldnt fly here. The airplane hadnt been invented yet. He couldnt drive a car here because there werent any cars. He couldnt take a train here because no train service extended to Southwest Florida. No, the reporter sailed from Cedar Key in north Florida on a boat called the Wallowy. He and his traveling companions first had to reach Cedar Key and find the boat. After very little trouble we found her a little schooner of 17 tons, the reporter wrote. She was not a very neat or jaunty craft; her white paint was dingy; still, she seemed staunch and serviceable. Indeed she was, taking the group down to Southwest Florida. Here are highlights from the Harpers piece: Charlotte Harbor I should recommend as one of the best places as an objective point. Coming in by Cayo Costa, you take it all in at one delightful gulp all the pleasures of this country. Here on Pine Island was an Indian mound, and the party, with strong archeological tendencies, scrambled through thickets, and found an ancient tumulus (ancient burial mound). It was hard digging in a blazing sun with inefficient tools. We took three fine skulls after an hours work, and carried them off. They could not have been ante-Columbian, because we turned up a bit of rusty iron. Fort Myers, with its perhaps 200 inhabitants, is the last populated place on the Gulf side. It has the real tropical look. Here were orange trees, the cocoa-nut, and the date palm. Soon, Fort Myers would have more than 200 inhabitants. Far more. It wouldnt have happened without all those boats.

Marine electronics are constantly becoming more functional and powerful, yet researching and buying the latest onboard equipment can be frustrating and expensive. By the time you install that new multi-function display, radio or entertainment system, it seems like theres already a newer, better one on the market. While that simply may be the nature of consumer electronics, there are ways to ensure you have all your boats electronic bases covered. Here are tips on everything from upgrading your VHF radio to installing the latest in navigation, audio and connectivity features. Whether youre doing it yourself or using a qualified marine service yard or electronics outfitter, getting your boat electronically fit is a great springtime goal. Multi-function displays feed your data needs. Todays new MFD systems gather all your boats engine, system and entertainment information and display it on a big, easy-to-read and use touchscreen. You can divide the screen into halves, quarters, eighths or more, so information in front and center for you to use. An MFD also can be used to replace old analog gauges, opening up your dash. Add even more instruments. With more room available on the dash, now you can add more electronics equipment you may not have, such as a radar or depth sounder and transducer. With the new advances electronic charting, it also may make sense to start fresh with a new chart plotter and charts. Night-vision cameras increase safety. Handheld and fixed-mount thermal imaging cameras from FLIR and IRIS allow you to run more safely at night. These cameras read the different in temperature between the water and floating objectslike boats or people and let you see those images through the cameras. Prices on these cameras are continually dropping, plus the handhelds are useful on land as well. Enhance audio fun through more powerful units. A number of manufacturers and dealers offer stereos and speakers that are specially designed to take the rigors of the marine environment. Look for systems that have compatible ports for iOS and Android devices. Also be sure any new unit you are considering is NMEA 2000-compliant, meaning you can get audio control on your MFD screen. Connect music devices to the boats sound system via Bluetooth. Just about every new music storage device and player has Bluetooth connectivity nowadays, but it makes sense to be sure by reading the product literature, as there are still some less expensive audio systems on the market that are not Bluetooth-enabled. VHF radio upgrades are worth it. Having a working VHF radio onboard your boat is a must, but todays new radios offer much more than just the usual channels. Fully waterproof, these new units are loaded with additional features such as GPS. In addition, fixedmount radios now have Digital Selective Calling (DSC). With DSC, a radio can send and receive digitally encoded distress calls on channel 70, and if your radio is connected to a GPS, the distress call also will include the precise latitude and longitude of the vessel. Use Sea Tows Automated Radio Check service. Dont forget to try this out to ensure your VHF is in working order. The Automated Radio Check Service uses one of VHF Channels 24, 26, 27, 28. Simply tune your radio to the proper channel for your community (available at seatow. com/tools-and-education/ automated-radio-check), conduct a radio check as you normally would, and upon releasing the mic, the system will replay your transmission, letting you hear how you sound. Replace old wiring. If your boat has a few years on it, its a good idea to replace all the back-end wiring for your electronic instruments in order to eliminate this as a potential source of failure. It is a shame to see expensive electronics fail because of a wiring problem. Download the Sea Tow App. Available for iPhone and Android devices, the Sea Tow App is the No. 1 boating accessory to keep with you at all times. Its a powerful navigation app, weather app, tides app, and an emergency call service app, all for free.

The Sea Tow Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to boating safety and education, offers the following list of 10 tips for boating with kids. 1. Life jackets save lives: Be sure all kids on board are wearing a life jacket whenever the boat is moving. This is not just sound advice; its the law. The U.S. Coast Guard requires that all children younger than 13 must wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket while the vessel is being operated unless the child is below deck or in an enclosed cabin. 2. Make sure the jacket fits: Childrens life jackets come in different sizes appropriate to the childs body weight. Make sure you have one that fits each child onboard, and that the kids havent outgrown their life jackets over the winter. Infant life jackets have a strap that runs between the legs and extra flotation behind the head to ensure the baby floats face up at all times. Keep an extra childs life jacket or two on hand in case a friend comes along. 3. No exceptions: Kids often complain about having to wear their life jackets on board. Get them invested in theirs by letting them pick it out for themselves. Make sure the life jacket fits the child properly, both for comfort and safetys sake. Be a good role model. If the kids see you wearing your life jacket, theyll be more likely to wear theirs. 4. Safety starts in the parking lot: Get the kids in the habit of putting on sunblock, a hat and their life jacket even before you walk down to the boat. That way, theyll be protected if they accidentally tumble off the dock into the water. 5. Keep everything shipshape: When you board the boat, have everyone stow their gear and any water toys away neatly. Be sure there are no loose lines, mops, buckets, etc. on deck that someone might trip over. 6. Pre-cruise check: The adult who is driving the boat should give the kids a safety lesson before leaving the dock. Make it a point to tell them that there can only be one captain, and its important to follow his or her orders quickly and quietly. Set a few basic rules, including: No running or sitting on the side rails, foredeck, aft sunpad or swim platform when the boat is under way. 7. First mate: Kids will get a bigger kick out of a boat trip if you make them your first mate. Before you leave, show them where youre going on a chart. While under way, have them keep a lookout for marker buoys. Teach older kids how to work the chart plotter and find your GPS coordinates. 8. Radio check: Be sure everyone knows how to operate the boats VHF radio in case of an emergency. A good way to practice is to call Sea Tows Automated Radio Check service. This free service not only shows the kids how to key the microphone and talk over the VHF, it also lets you be sure the radio is in good working order. To find the Automated Radio Check VHF channel in your boating area, visit automated-radio-checks. 9. Tow for two: When you tow kids behind the boat on inflatable water toys, water skis or a wakeboard, be sure to designate an adult or teen to be the official watcher, keeping his or her eyes on the towed rider at all times. Teach the kids hand signals they can use to tell you to speed up, go slower or stop. Be sure they wear their life jackets while skiing, boarding or riding. 10. Places, please: Give the kids assigned seats on the boat while docking, so that they dont accidentally block the drivers view. Make sure they know to keep their fingers and toes inside during this process! These basic guidelines will help you ensure everyone stays safe on board. But the most important tip for your family boating adventure is this: Have fun out there.

G26 Online course teaches boaters weather basics BOATUS For boaters, sailors or anglers, know ing the forecast and understanding the weather can mean the difference between smooth, sunny sailing or slogging through uncomfortably rough seas. Weather for Boaters, a new online course from the United States Power Squadrons and the BoatUS Foundation, aims to teach boaters the basics of weather and forecasting so they can recognize and prepare for storms coming their way, inter pret cloud formations and wind shifts, learn when to prepare for lightning and thunderstorms and more. Weather for Boaters follows the tradi tions of USPS to prepare boaters to make informed decisions on the water. said Robert Baldridge, chief commander, US Power Squadrons. The course is an easy-to-follow boaters guide to forecasting, winds and storms that will help any boat owner decide when its time to go out, head back in or seek cover. Included is an understanding of weather elements such as air masses, fronts and winds, storms, squalls and fog. The infor mation also helps boaters know the early signs of changing weather and how to use a barometer and weather map. The course can also help race committees reduce risk. Additional USPS/BoatUS Foundation online learning courses such as Partner in Command, which is great for first mates; and Boating on Rivers, Locks and Lakes are also available. The United States Power Squadrons is a nonprofit, educational organization dedicated to making boating safer and more enjoyable through teaching boaters courses and seminars covering dozens of topics. To date, more than 4 million boaters have taken a USPS course or seminar. The partnership with the BoatUS Foun dation aims to increase the accessibility to boating education courses by tapping into the foundations expertise at present ing engaging and effective course mate rials for online study at home. United States Power Squadrons have more than 30 advanced courses and seminars taught by local squadrons that will be made available online in the next two to three years. What springtime boat buyers need to know BOATUS With the newest boat-buying season kicked off, springtime customers are on the prowl. The nations largest recreation al boating advocacy and services group, Boat Owner Association of the United States (BoatUS), has some must-do tips before you sign on the dotted line. The Internet is your friend and foe: Of course its always good to research a boat youre considering online first. While the Internet is not always 100 percent accurate, you may learn about serious problems other owners have had. Check owners group chat boards or online boat ing, fishing or cruising discussion groups for the kind of boat youre looking at. BoatUS has the only national consum er complaint database for boats as well, searchable by members. Also be aware of Internet scams if youre buying online. Any whiff of something odd and you should proceed with caution. Always get a professional marine survey: Surveys will uncover potential problem spots and can help with price negotiations. On a boat with expensive engines or generators, a separate engine survey could save huge headaches later. Make any purchase contingent on the sur vey. For a list of accredited surveyors, visit Take the boat on a sea trial: You wouldnt buy a car without taking it for a drive, and you should treat buying a boat the same way. It doesnt matter whether its 16 feet or 60 feet. Give yourself some reasonable pro tections: Make sure that any deposit is 100 percent refundable if any contingencies such as a survey, financing or insurance are not met. Get it in writing. If there is a warranty or promise to fix something as part of the sale, get it in writing. Did we say get it in writing? Who am I talkin to?: Before getting too serious about a boat, verify that the owner (or brokerage/consignor) has the title and registration on hand. Any liens will have to be paid before transferring title. BoatUS has additional resources at, including a free buy ing guide and boat evaluation checklist.

BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.comJohn Crowe and John Giglio run competing businesses that defied every stereotype coming off the assembly line of economic disasters during the Great Recession their businesses did better, not worse, when times were hard. That may be why Mr. Crowe, manager of the Carefree Boat Club at Cape Harbour in Lee Countys watery Cape Coral, with sister locations at Port Sanibel and elsewhere in the state and country, doesnt mind telling this joke (which often isnt a joke): Question: What are the two best days in a boaters life? Answer: The day he (or she) buys a boat, and the day he sells it. Our business is designed to prove that wrong, he explains. Carefree and other boat clubs offer similar terms and conditions: the Southwest Florida Boat Club based in Marco Island and Naples, for example, or Mr. Giglios Freedom Boat Club with 100 locations across the country, including 16 situated on the southwest coast between Marco Island and Bradenton. They invite members to put down a one-time fee and monthly dues to use the clubs boats anytime, at no additional costs to themselves except for fuel. Mr. Giglio, the franchisor for the Freedom Boat Club nationwide and the owner, president and CEO of the companys Southwest Florida clubs, opened a brandspanking-new club site on the Caloosahatchee River in fort Myers, close to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, last week. He explained his business goal this way: When a new member comes aboard we give them hands-on boat training, we teach them the rules of the road and we make them comfortable. They know how to handle a boat; they know the regulations. Mr. Crowe operates with similar care for the club member at Carefree. Every new member goes through a training period of a minimum of four hours, to make sure they understand the marking systems, the waterways, the safety equipment, everything. And for boaters who dont have experience, well give them all the additional training they need to operate a boat. The second part is this, explains Mr. Giglio: We try to provide a hassle-free boating experience. Hence the clubs monikers, Freedom and Carefree. If your starter goes out, thats $800 but you dont have to pay a penny of it, says Mr. Crowe. You dont have to pay insurance. If the boat breaks down, you dont have to pay the sometimes significant towing fee to get back off the water. You dont have to do anything, for the most part, except boat a verb that for some boaters doesnt mean simply float around and have fun; it can also mean maintaining, laboring over and worrying. But not at these clubs. When a member makes a reservation and comes to the club, we have a boat ready, explains Mr. Giglio. A dockmaster grabs their stuff, gets them on the boat, they go through the checkout, and they have all the equipment from a safety standpoint that they need. Then they head out for the day. On the way back in, they contact the dock, and the dockmaster is standing dockside. They dont even have to fuel the boat.

fuel flow meters so we charge them right at the dock. The upfront language on the website for the Southwest Florida Boat Club, with sites on Marco Island, in Naples and in Bonita Springs, sums it all up as if even breathing in and out or walking down the street were no more difficult than taking out a boat: Boats require an endless amount of upkeep, docking and storage fees, insurance fees, repair bills, and cleaning duties. Being a member of the Southwest Florida Boat Club, you will get to enjoy our boats and also not take on any of the expenses or hassles that owning a boat brings on. The Naples location of the Southwest Florida Club at Docks on Fifth Avenue near Tin City advertises two offshore boats and 12 Hurricane deck boats, including a 22-foot Sea Hunt center console with a 225 horsepower motor, and Hurricane fun decks and sun decks and jet skis, kayaks and paddle boards. In any of these clubs, members may reserve and use any boats in any sister locations. At Freedom, for example, that creates a lot of opportunity: the company has 16 locations up and down the coast with a fleet of about 450 boats, says Mr. Giglio any of which are available to all club members at any of those locations. We have a wide variety, he notes. Boats from 17 to 25 feet: sailboats, deck boats, pontoon boats, bow riders Theyre clean, well-maintained, and new or mostly new boats, too. Each boat, he explains, is turned over for a new model every three years, which means at any one time a third of the fleet is new. Not only that, but Freedom and Carefree both allow members to make arrangements in other cities with clubs four or five times a year at no extra cost Tampa and Miami, for example. Boston, Chicago, or L.A., depending on the club. And the clubs work to make sure boats are available, by having enough boats. We dont let our boats-to-members ratio go above 10 to 1, says Mr. Crowe. Which pretty much insures availability all the time. There are other amenities, too, for members: Some clubs will prepare food for members reserving a boat. Theyll supply the boat with ice or bait for those taking out a fishing boat (inshore fishing, nearshore fishing or offshore fishing, with models available for all). That leaves the question of cost. For some boaters especially those with tools, time and the knowledge and ability to make their own fixes and do their own repairs, including on the water when something breaks down boat clubs arent worth it for working people. If youre rich and you dont want to deal with a boat, its fine, says ardent boater Kent Cary, a longtime firefighter and U.S. Army veteran who was trained as a mechanic in the service, and can likely fix anything, anywhere. But if youre a normal working person, its highway robbery, he adds, describing his aversion to membership fees and monthly costs. So you pay all this money and they put the boat in the water for you, and then they wash it and put it away for you. I dont see an average person doing that, especially if you can buy your own boat on say a 20-year loan, and youre paying about $60 a month. But many people cant or dont want to spend the time fixing boats, or maintaining them. At a club, they dont have to. Members pay a one-time entry fee to get into the club: its $5,900 at Freedom, says Mr. Giglio. There are different plans, but the full plan is the most popular, thats $279 a month, the monthly fee. That cost is fixed for the customer for the rest of their lives. As our price increases, which it does every year, theirs does not. At Carefree, Mr. Crowe explains that the upfront fee is $4,995 for a three-year commitment of $299 per month, or $1,000 less than that $3,995 for a five-year commitment, at $299 per month. But he adds what may be music to a consumers ear: I always have promotions available. And the likelihood is that these clubs will remain in place and ready to serve boaters who dont like hassles through thick and thin. Thats what happened during the Great Recession, even when Lee Countys home foreclosure rates were the highest in the nation, explains Mr. Giglio. In 2010 and 2011, our business absolutely took off, he recalls. People couldnt get financing for boats anymore the recession decimated the boating industry, in general. They used to use home equity lines to buy boats, but that went away. So people were losing homes, selling existing boats they couldnt afford and that made it easier to be part of a boat club. There are no credit checks, theres no bank financing, its a reasonable fee and a fixed fee so who is our biggest competitor? Its not another boat club, he says. Its time. Whether youre younger or older, when you look at the ease of boat clubs and see how much more time our members spend on a boat, as opposed to getting it ready and cleaning it and maintaining it, you can see why they like us. Perhaps for boat clubs, therefore, time is not only the biggest competitor, but the biggest friend.

Preparation critical for responsible boat owners BOATUSIn the weeks after hurricanes or other major storms strike, orphaned boats can litter streets, block traffic and interfere with access by emergency vehicles, and sailboat masts snagged in overhead wires can delay the return of much-needed electrical power. Keeping boats contained in storms facilitates recovery efforts on every front. The more boats you have in the way of recovery or needing salvage after a hurricane, the longer the delay in returning to normal, said Scott Croft, BoatUS vice president public affairs. With the Atlantic Hurricane season starting Sunday, June 1, BoatUS offers boat owners, public and private marina operators, boat club and community resiliency managers free information on preparing boats, marinas and boat clubs at the online BoatUS Hurricane Tracking and Resource Center ( Included are: 1. The easy-to-download, print, post and share BoatUS Tips for Protecting Boats in Hurricanes (www.BoatUS. com/hurricanes/tipsheet) is a basic twopage primer on hurricane prep for all boaters in a hurricane state. 2. Boaters Guide to Preparing Boats and Marinas for Hurricanes ( prep_guide.pdf) is the boaters guide on Hurricane prep 101, and has more details on protecting your boat and a marina. 3. What Works: A Guide to Preparing Marinas, Yacht Clubs and Boats for Hurricanes ( is a helpful resource for community resiliency managers, local government, marina and boat club staff that focuses on facilities. Local emergency managers, marina or club fleet operators can also download a sampling of marina hurricane preparation plans to see how their local marinas compare, learn about the value of strapping down boats stored ashore, and view features on why some marinas fare better than others. When a storm approaches, BoatUS. com/hurricanes also has up-to-the-minute storm tracking tools with live satellite images, as well as checklists for what to do before and after a hurricane strikes. Much of the information provided comes from BoatUS and its Marine Insurance Catastrophe (CAT) Team, a national leader in hurricane preparedness that has over 30 years of storm salvage experience. Go to hurricanes for more. Dont let scammers sink your boat transaction BOATUSIts not uncommon for boat buyers and sellers to get ripped off, says the Boat Owners Association of The United States. The national boater advocacy, safety and services group outlines the top boat-selling scams reported to its Consumer Protection Bureau and offers some ways to greatly improve your chance of a smooth sale or purchase and when to walk away. Getting a cashiers check or money for more than asking price: Anytime a buyer offers to pay more for the asking price of the boat your are selling run away. Today, its easy for criminals to print counterfeit bank checks, and by the time your bank figures out the loss, the bad guys are far away, and you will be liable for the lost funds. Always contact the financial institution on which the check was drawn to verify the account, but dont dial the phone number printed on the check, if possible. The amount of the bank check should also match in numerals and words, and the account number should not be shiny in appearance. Official checks are generally perforated on at least one side. A twist on the same for the electronic age: Recently, PayPal has become a target for scammers. A phony buyer again asks to send substantially more than the asking price. Later, you get a fake confirmation email from PayPal with your user ID for more than the agreed purchase price with instructions from the buyer advising you to send the extra money to a shipper. The scam can seem even more legit if you refuse, you may receive additional fake email notices from PayPal threatening to close your account if you dont transfer the extra money as per your agreement. An escrow service scam: A bogus seller advertises a boat on a website at a low, but not scam-worthy price. When the scammer finds a buyer, they will tell them to use a legitimate-sounding, yet fictitious escrow service, such as But once the funds are transferred, youll never hear from the seller again. Its wise to use an escrow service for a long-distance purchase, but be very cautious with escrow services youre not familiar with, and go with established providers such as eBays Email red flags that mean you may be taken for a ride: Poor grammar, spelling and language use; no phone number for the buyer/seller; generic references (ex. merchandise) to the boat being sold; changing names and locations in emails; a buyer who shows no interest in haggling over price or seeing the boat firsthand; a buyer or seller who has no interest in discussing titling or verifying the boats Hull Identification Number (HIN).
