MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA AND TARPON SPRINGS matterbrothersfurniture.com COMMENTARYBoomers, babySo its come to this, they say: Were selfish. Were spoiled narcissists. Were too greedy to insure the generations following us will be comfortable, safe, healthy or as wealthy as weve been. We arent going away quickly, either. Boomers will continue to insist on dessert after dinner just like we always have and well throw a hissy-fit if we dont get it. Thats what they say, some of them. And they might be right. Boomers have been leading the nation, more or less, since the 1980s. Yes, we protested the Vietnam War and Watergate, we did Woodstock and Im OK, Youre OK, but it wasnt us who did the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or the Peace Corps or the Moon Landings or Environmental Protection that was the leadership of the so-called Greatest Generation, our parents. On our part, weve offered three leaders to the American cause so far, and were going to offer more before were through: Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald J. Trump, boomers all. Boy-O-Boy. I hope we get another chance to make it right. And given the numbers, we probably will.In 2010 the U.S. Census counted 76 million still living who were born between 1946 and 1964, one of several date-parameters used to describe us. In that 18-year period when the nations young adults were stepping out of the Great Depression, then out of war, and then into the suburbs where they became middle-aged, some 76 million babies were born in the United States of America. By 2012, 11.2 million had given up this world for another. But our ranks remain swollen because we had reinforcements. It happened like this. Following the Immigration Act of 1965 the year Martin Luther King Jr. organized the march from Selma to Montgomery, the year of the Watts riots, the year the Vietnam war got bloodier, the year (I Cant Get No) Satisfaction hit number three on the charts for the Rolling Stones all these funny-looking people started flooding the country. You know the ones: Your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore And now, more than 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. are at least 53 years old, but no older than 71 or 72. Theyre boomers, too. Dont you wonder who the last baby boomer will be about 60 years from now? I hope shes well-spoken and thoughtful when they come to her and say, Whats it like to be the last boomer, Grandma?Likely shell smile and share a thunderous timpani flatulence, making her final contribution to greenhouse emissions by Boomers.Whats that, honey, whadchusay? BOOMER whats it like to be the last BOOMER, Grandma? WHADCHUSAY? THE. LAST. BOOMER! theyll shout. OHHHHH, Grandma will yell. THE FAST ZOOMER! HERE, BABY DOLL, LEMME SHOW YOU!Then shell jam the pedal to the medal of her normally silent Elon Musk-mobile retrofitted with a 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 engine cranking 330 horsepower with 370-pound-feet of torque to move from zero to 60 in 5.7 seconds and covering a quarter mile in 14.1 seconds, all while reaching 100.6 miles per hour a feat performed with gasoline so heavily leaded that a single burst of speed from a single Boss 351 could probably reduce the lifespan of major glaciers by two or three millennia. Grandma will likely go through the far wall of the Independent Living establishment in a then-illegal piston-engine roar, never to be seen again and drawing the curtain on an entire generation. I expect her to depart with a single final shout, accompanied by an evil cackling laugh: NEVERTHELESS, SHEEE PERSISSSTTEDDDdddd! What, you dont like the she persisted thing because youre a Republican and you dont like Elizabeth Warren, a boomer herself? Shes the senator ejected from the Senate chambers by a power-sniffing addict named Sen. Mitch McConnell (at 75, no boomer himself). He said it, not Sen. Warren. But neither of them define a generation. In the end, the facts dont always lend themselves to an easy truth about who we are as Americans, not in any generation. The facts are these: The Greatest Generation struggled through the Depression as children, they faced the immense challenge of World War II head on as adults, they condoned continuing segregation and racism, continuing environmental degradation and brutal pit-stop wars, while also creating a stronger, more equal society and treading with some gentleness in the world. They passed the Civil Rights Act but not the Equal Rights Amendment. The facts are also these: Baby boomers fought wars our parents got us into, or protested them when they were wrong. Baby boomers insisted on greater equality among races and sexes, we were present and supportive, somewhat, when regulations protecting the environment became part of public life, and we helped take the hobbles off our social horse, making divorce an easier and gentler process when its called for, or establishing some safeguards for gays and others who dont fit traditional societal norms. We also degraded the environment, reduced taxes and the responsibility we place on the rich, failed to invest in infrastructure, education or health, got ourselves and a younger generation into unnecessary wars fought by less than 1 percent of the population, treated immigrants like horse manure, bought into fear-mongering by such groups as the NRA or such movements as the so-called alt-right, and continued to put in swimming pools or buy second houses or wave the American flag and claim were patriots. So who are we? Were Americans boomers, baby. Some of us are selfish and greedy, some of us arent. As individuals, we can always get up in the morning and do better. So in true boomer fashion, lets keep on keepin on. w p o b w w roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

The collections featured are chosen from among a variety of authors. I always check it out. Librarians have an inside scoop on subject matter often off a readers beaten path. It is an opportunity to savor an author or a subject you might miss had you not the wisdom of the librarians choices as a guide. My tastes run to the habitual nonfiction, American history, cookbooks, Florida lore, politics and sci-fi. Occasionally, I take a safari into book genres unexplored. My reward for being venturous is discovering a gem or two. The experience repeats itself every library visit. I learned early your library card is a passport for mind travel. So, I go home with more books than I will ever have time to read. It is a guilty pleasure and an indulgence I have no interest in breaking. My last visit, I made several picks from among the books selected for Februarys display. They included two of special note: Henry Louis Gates Jr.s epic work, Life Upon These Shores: Looking at African-American History, 1513-2 008; and The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks, by Toni Tipton-Martin. Gates is an accomplished historian, filmmaker, author, literary critic and academician. He is also the past host of the television series Finding Your Roots, on PBC. It featured expert genealogists and researchers who enabled Gates guests to discover their ancestral history. Oprah Winfrey, Chris Rock and Andrew Young were among his recruits. Gates is now at Harvard University, as the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research. With such a resume, you expect Life Upon these Shores to be a historical tour de force, and it is. Gates explains his approach to writing the book in its introduction: In Life Upon These Shores, I set out to picture AfricanAmerican History, to find a way of looking at its full sweep. I imagined a book with an abundance of images of the great and small events and of the significant individuals who shaped the heritage of African-American people and the history of our nation. Gates also wanted to illustrate the richness of this history through ancient maps, manuscripts and documents, portraits, posters, sheet music, cartoons, drawing and photographs, and even film stills. The result is an encyclopedic text, beautifully written and visually compelling, encompassing 500 years of African-American history. The texts chronology begins with origins and concludes in near-present day. For example, in 1513, and again in 1514, Fountain-of-youth seeker Ponce de Len is joined in his Florida adventures by Juan Garrido, a black conquistador. At the other end of the timeline, read about the 1960 sit-in by black students at Jacksonvilles downtown Woolworths and the race riots that followed. The in-between separating those two milestones contains a stunning, historical narrative. The geographic dimensions of the book are global. But its revelations are grounded in the shared experience of what it means to be human and suffer the yoke of injustice. The stories impress deeply how profoundly our present is still affected by this past. By second choice that day was less intimidating. Nonetheless, The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks had an instructional mission of no less gravity. But it went down easily. She woos her readers by going through their stomachs. Its a tried and true tradition. The Jemima Code is about cuisine, culture, cooks, cooking and cookbooks. The literary entrees are served from a tantalizing buffet prepared by women of African descent and contributed to American cuisine and food culture. As a native southerner, I am mindful the region owes a huge debt to AfricanAmerican culinary arts. The magis of this tradition introduced many a white folk to the glory of down-home cooking, food for the soul, myself included. This charming and substantive history began first with the author amassing one of the worlds largest private collections of cookbooks produced by African-Americans. From their pages, she teased out the mostly untold history of African-American cookery. The Jemima Code features more than 150 of the cookbooks from her collection, from the rare to the classic, from modest booklets to the celebrated sources of revered chefs. Reading this book whips up the appetite corn bread and cracklings, mustard and turnip greens, short ribs barbecue, fried okra, corn pudding, and shrimp and grits. My, oh, my. But before I swoon, I must tell you, Ms. Tipton-Martin is an advocate of healthier eating habits. Modern AfricanAmerican and/or Southern cuisine is lighter on the salt, more miserly with the fat, more veggie-nutritious, and still, oh-so-delicious. Still, a cast iron skillet and a slab of fatback are all it takes to summon me home. It isnt just the food. Southern author Pat Conroy put it this way: Recipes are stories that end with a good meal. I couldnt agree more. Whats happening in SwedenAs if on cue, riots broke out in a heavily immigrant suburb of Stockholm as soon as the media mocked President Donald Trump for a vague warning about immigration-related problems in Sweden.At a campaign rally, Trump issued forth with a mystifyingly ominous statement. You look, he declared, at whats happening last night in Sweden. What? Had the president invented a nonexistent terror attack? As it turned out, the reference was to a segment on Sweden he had watched on Fox News the previous night rather than to any specific event in the Nordic country. The ensuing discussion quickly took on the character of much of the debate in the early Trump years a blunderbuss president matched against a snotty and hyperventilating press, with a legitimate issue lurking underneath. By welcoming a historic number of asylum-seekers proportionate to its population, Sweden has indeed embarked on a vast social experiment that wasnt well thought out and isnt going very well. The unrest in the Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby after police made an arrest underscored the problems inherent in Swedens immigration surge. Swedens admirable humanitarianism is outstripping its capacity to absorb newcomers. Nothing if not an earnest and well-meaning society, Sweden has always accepted more than its share of refugees. Immigration was already at elevated levels before the latest influx into Europe from the Middle East, which prompted Sweden to try to see and raise the reckless open-borders policy of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Sweden welcomed more than 160,000 asylum-seekers in 2015, and nearly 40,000 in October of that year alone. For a country of fewer than 10 million, this was almost equal to 2 percent of the population in one year. Predictably, it isnt easy to integrate people who dont know the language, arent highly skilled and come from a foreign culture. There is a stark gap in the labor-force-participation rate between the native born (82 percent) and the foreign born (57 percent). As the Migration Policy Institute points out, Sweden is an advanced economy with relatively few low-skills jobs to begin with. On top of this, high minimum wages and stringent labor protections make it harder for marginal workers to find employment, while social assistance discourages the unemployed from getting work. None of this is a formula for assimilation or social tranquility. In a piece for The Spectator, Swedish journalist Tove Lifvendahl writes, A parallel society is emerging where the states monopoly on law and order is being challenged. And the fiscal cost is high. According to Swedish economist Tino Sanandaji, the country spends 1.5 percent of its GDP on the asylum-seekers, more than on its defense budget. Sweden is spending twice of the entire budget of the United Nations High Commissioner responsible for refugees worldwide. Pressed for housing, Sweden has spent as much on sheltering 3,000 people in tents as it would cost to care for 100,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan. It is little wonder that Sweden, where so recently it was forbidden to question the openhanded orthodoxy on immigration, has now clamped down on its borders. Sweden is a unique case, but clearly one of the lessons of its recent experience is: Dont try this at home. u o w w u a e rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly A G t f t R leslieLILLYllilly@floridaweekly.com

For no reason other than sheer stupidity. I know youre thinking: Um, Lindsey. Maybe youre the problem. I assure you Im not, which is why I was so excited to find a press release from Collier County Sheriffs Office announcing its new Just Drive traffic campaign. Can you guess what its about? Driving! Just driving! Not texting, not fumbling with the radio and certainly not talking to Siri about how to ignore traffic signs so you can cut straight across Immokalee Road from the I-75 off-ramp to the opposing on-ramp. Forgive me, readers, but run-on sentences help me feel better. I can tell you with this latest incident, I was quite satisfied to tell the officer that I was not on my phone when it happened. I couldnt have been, because the kids were grappling over it in the backseat. That cursed device is never on my person when those two iPhone hogs are commuting with me. My best guess is that the other driver was doing something in addition to applying pressure to his gas pedal when he struck me, only because the squeal of my breaks and the blast of my horn was not enough to alert him to the slow-speed collision about to happen. Because he didnt see the accident (and hes at least a little bit of a jerk), we are in a dispute over liability because the officer couldnt determine fault. Distracted drivers cause 10 percent of traffic accidents in Collier County, a statistic that surprises no one, not even children. Just yesterday, my son asked, Why is that car doing that to us? as a driver hovered in and out of his lane, almost grazed my passenger side as he did. It creeps me out that people drive around here during the height of tourist season, no less with their eyes on something that is not the road. Apparently, the CCSO feels the same way, because motorists now see lighted message boards on our busiest roads reminding them to Just Drive. Posts on their social media accounts deliver the same message. For a little perspective on the dangers of distracted driving, a motorist driving at 55 miles per hour can travel half the length of a football field in five seconds, which is also the average amount of time their eyes are off the road while texting. Fortunately, the vast majority of drivers are aware of the small percentage of dimwits who cruise around town staring at their smart phones in their laps. One of my favorite maneuvers is the protective bubble people often give an offending vehicle: Everyone surrounding the car gives it a wide berth, preventing themselves from getting grazed and the drivers behind them from getting too close. Most often, the errant driver returns to his senses and the danger is past. For now, Ill do what the rest of the smart drivers do and limit my time on the road as much as I can until May. While technology is a hazard when youre behind the wheel, one of the blessings of living in the 21st century is that it allows us the means conduct much of our business at home. I bet the deputies at CCSO would appreciate it. When someone suggests that you dont contact the police or your insurance company after an accident, Lindsey Nesmith suggests you do the opposite. lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com One o f m y f avorite maneuvers is the

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY transportation is provided by airports. Not just international behemoths such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Orlando or Southwest Florida International, either, but by niche airports that serve both public and private interests. Without these smaller-scale general aviation meccas, many communities might falter, or at least be significantly less wealthy and vibrant. Here, three such hubs are not only prominent in the lives of their communities, but are so well managed they pay for themselves while creating regional wealth: Naples Municipal Airport, Page Field in Fort Myers and Punta Gorda Airport in Charlotte County. These airports weave history and romance into a dynamic and responsive economic fabric that supports hundreds of planes in leased hangars or tie-downs at each airport; private and business traffic as well as commercial traffic in Naples and Punta Gorda; aircraft maintenance services; law enforcement, emergency medical or military flights; mosquito control operations; car rental agencies; and businesses that offer pilot lessons and other aviation-career training. Each of these airports has won awards or been selected as operations at the top of their game in recent years. In a country where roughly 3,000 general aviation airports or Fixed-Base Operators exist, according to Aviation Research Group International, thats promising for the future and flexibility of Southwest Florida. Especially since some other airports dont break even, instead costing their communities money. Hangar and land leasing, as well as fuel sales, provide much of the revenue in these parts. At Naples Municipal Airport, the most lucrative operation in the region, the airport logo is not much of an exaggeration. The best little airport in the country, it reads. In fact, Professional Pilot magazine named NMA No. 23 in the nation for Best FBO and No. 12 in the nation for Best Independent FBO (not supported by taxpayers) last May. An FBO provides fuel and hangar space or parking with other services for private and corporate aircraft and, for the past year in Naples, also for commercial jets operated by Elite Airlines. For NMA, the bulk of commerce and profit is private, says Diane Terrill, director of strategy and communication. The year-old commercial effort by Elite has struggled against the competitive proximity of Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) and now offers a couple of flights a week to Portland, Me., and Islip, N.Y.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 NEWS A9of Long Island). Elite has halted its Newark service for the time being. Outside of public agencies, private planes is primarily what we do we service private transportation, explains Ms. Terrill. NMA also houses a number of flight schools that provide flight training and other aviation training, she adds. An in Naples, private air transportation is robust. Last year NMA saw more than 95,000 takes-offs and landings. The airport has 363 based aircraft, of which 224 are single-engine, 70 are multi-engine/pistondriven, 55 are jets and 15 are helicopters. The busiest times of the year at NMA are around the Naples Winter Wine Festival and Presidents Day. During this years NWWF, 1,511 aircraft arrived or departed in a five-day span in late January. Over Presidents Day Feb. 16-20, airport officials say, the number reached 1,851. But the biggest single day? That happens to be the day after Christmas. On Dec. 26, 2016, the airport accommodated 510 arrivals and departures. All of them rely on two runways that are sufficient both for current and future needs in terms of length: the 6,600-foot main runway, and a 5,000-foot crosswind runway. When the airport embarks next year on a two-year study to look at needs and development through about 2040, lengthening those runways will not be on the table, Ms. Terrill says. But using all the newest technology to create the lowest possible impact in noise abatement, in pollution, in visibility to the residences near the airport will be a prominent part of the planning. This was a World War II-era airport as Page Field and Punta Gorda were, and when they developed it and then later (in 1969) turned it over to Naples, no one imagined there would be so much development around it. But there is, so our room is limited. On the heels of its two busiest weekends of the year, no one should be surprised that NMA is considered the second-busiest contract air traffic control tower for IFR operations (the acronym stands for Instrument Flight Rules) in the United States. Ms. Terrill explains it this way: Air traffic control towers are controlled by the FAA and mostly operated by FAA personnel. But contract towers are for smaller but still busy airports with complicated air space. Theyre operated by contractors to the FAA. One of the most complicated of all is Naples the No. 2 busiest. So many other aircraft use this airspace and there are so many different types of aircraft, everything from little two-seaters to major types of aircraft that this can seem like a major international airport, Ms. Terrill says. Some people come here to work from places like OHare (in Chicago and famously busy), and when they get here theyre blown away by how busy and how complicated it is. Like both Page Field and Punta Gorda Airport, Naples Municipal Airport does it all: offers flight schools, air charter operators, car rental agencies and corporate aviation and non-aviation businesses, as well as fire/rescue services, mosquito control, the Collier County Sheriffs Aviation Unit and other community services, according to officials. Even the train depots and hubs of once upon a time couldnt come close to that. And independent it is, too: NMA relies on no property taxes, instead maintaining and improving the airport with money from its operations, including hangar and land leases with fuel sales, and the occasional help of a federal or state grant. As a result, the airport generates more than $283 million each year in impact to the community, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.Past and presentNiche airports, especially, are marriages of both the past and the present thus, they celebrate the past as they move toward the future in ways larger airports might not. Naples includes a vibrant and expanded Museum of Military Memorabilia, for example. And at the Punta Gorda Airport this month, you can see something unlikely ever to occur at RSW: Starting March 26, as many as 36 World War II airplanes will fly in for eight or nine days as part of a formation clinic held by the North American Trainer Association, PGA spokeswoman Jennifer Smith says. The clinic will certify that participating pilots are trained and prepared to fly in formation and not just anywhere, but at the largest air shows in the United States, including the Sun N Fun International Fly-In and Expo in Lakeland (coming up April 4-9). Basically, a bunch of war-bird pilots gather to get their hours in for certification to fly in formation at air shows, and they do it at the Punta Gorda Airport, Ms. Smith says. The clinic wont be the first time those planes have landed in the region. Page Field famously hosted the late Gen. Jimmy Doolittle, then a lieutenant colonel, early in 1942 when he flew into the field with his squadron of B-25 bombers to practice takeoffs and landings on a short runway in preparation for the raid on Tokyo. On April 18 of that year, only 17 weeks after Pearl Harbor, those planes struck at Japan in a surprise attack launched from the deck of an aircraft carrier deep in the western Pacific. On permanent display at Page Field for todays pilots, passengers and visitors to admire are a P-51 Mustang (the premier U.S. fighter plane in World War II) and an AT-6 Texan (a training plane). Its a wonderful first impression for someone flying in on their own plane from elsewhere, says Jeff Mulder, executive director of the airport that is part of the Lee County Port Authority (which also operates RSW). Naples, meanwhile, has its eye on the future as well as the past. The airport also serves as home for the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 1067, which recently brought the Ford Tri-Motor to town a 1929 aircraft that was the first commercial plane developed. The EAA is an energetic promoter of aviation as a career path for young people a way of looking forward by looking back, one more thing niche airports do better than anybody else.

Panther, manatee population counts going in the right direction FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE COMMISSIONThe number of Florida panthers in South Florida and manatees in state waters increased in recent counts, encouraging news for conservationists, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission reports. FWC AND The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have updated the estimated number of endangered Florida panthers in the big cats breeding range south of the Caloosahatchee River. The updated population estimate is 120 to 230 adult and sub-adult Florida panthers, according to a February report from the agencies collaborating on conservation and recovery efforts. The previous Florida panther population estimate, in 2014, was 100 to 180 adult and sub-adult panthers. The estimates do not include kittens, which are still dependent on their mothers. This latest Florida panther population estimate is good news, an indication that conservation efforts are on track in helping recover this endangered animal, said Kipp Frohlich, FWC deputy director for the division of Habitat and Species Conservation. In the 1970s and 1980s, it was estimated only 20 to 30 panthers remained in Florida. Larry Williams, USFWS Florida State Supervisor of Ecological Services, believes the new numbers indicate things are trending in the right direction due in part to a strong partnership with the state of Florida. Continued recovery will require a long-term concerted effort by many partners committed to finding common-sense solutions that balance many different and competing interests, yet are grounded in a shared purpose of conserving the lands that support Floridas native wildlife and its ranching heritage, Mr. Williams said. The report emphasizes both the importance and difficulty in obtaining accurate panther population estimates, which is similar to estimating other puma populations in western states. Currently, Florida scientists are evaluating several methods to refine their ability to estimate the panther population size, including the use of trail cameras and panther road mortality data. The current numbers, developed jointly by USFWS and FWC scientists, use annual counts of panthers primarily conducted on public lands. Density of panthers on these areas is then multiplied across the larger area that makes up the primary breeding range in South Florida.Manatee numbersThe FWC said it was encouraged by a third straight year of a minimum count higher than 6,000 manatees. A team of 15 observers from 10 organizations counted 3,488 manatees on the east coast and 3,132 on the west coast. Researchers conduct synoptic surveys annually, weather permitting, that cover all the known winter habitats of manatees. This years counts were aided by warm, sunny weather with low winds and good visibility. Successful conservation of manatees is a product of the commitment made by many different organizations over multiple decades, said Gil McRae, head of FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. The relatively high counts for the past three years underscore the importance of warm water habitat to COURTESY PHOTOThe FWC used aerial views to count manatees in February.

manatees in Florida, he added. Aerial surveys provide information about manatee distribution throughout the state. Manatees use warm water sites, like springs and power plant discharges, during the winter. Sustaining adequate winter habitat for manatees remains a statewide conservation goal and a key factor in the long-term recovery of manatees.How to helpTo help support manatee research and conservation, the state sells manatee license plates at www.BuyaPlate. com and a manatee decals at www. MyFWC.com/ManateeSeaTurtleDecals. For more information about manatees and synoptic surveys, visit www. MyFWC.com/Research and click on Florida Manatee. To report a dead or distressed manatee, call the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at (888) 404-3922. The panther population report is available at www.floridapanthernet.org. The public is encouraged to report sightings of panthers or their tracks, and in particular photos, to www.MyFWC. com/PantherSightings to help with panther research and management. Biologists are especially interested in pictures of panthers north of the Caloosahatchee River, which runs from Lake Okeechobee to Fort Myers. Floridians also can help panther conservation efforts by purchasing the Protect a Panther vehicle tag from local tax collectors offices.

In honor of the largest gift from an individual in the history of the FGCU Foundation, the college has been renamed the Elaine Nicpon Marieb College of Health & Human Services. In 2012, Dr. Marieb, who lives in Naples, donated $5 million when the building that houses the college was named in her honor. After receiving her PhD in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Dr. Marieb joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College in 1969. Many of her students were studying nursing, and she developed a strong interest in the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and nursing. When she realized that most of the textbooks available at the time were extremely difficult to understand, she decided to start writing her own. She has written more than a dozen textbooks on her own and with others, including Human Anatomy & Physiology, Human Anatomy and Brief Atlas of the Human Body. FGCU President Wilson G. Bradshaw said Dr. Mariebs historic gift to the university epitomizes the term transformation and will enable the Marieb College of Health & Human Services to reach greater heights of excellence, and provide an even more comprehensive education to our students. The $10 million will be given over a five-year period and will continue to enhance the activities of FGCU faculty, students and staff to achieve a level of superior education, research and community outreach. Among the ways in which the gift will help elevate the colleges work are the following: Enable the creation and support of faculty-led clinical health centers on-campus and elsewhere, providing comprehensive rehabilitation services, behavioral health services and primary care. This will provide a service to the community as well as afford students the opportunity to train in a professional setting. Further support faculty development in teaching and research. Provide funding to ensure stateof-the-art clinical technologies that are current and cutting-edge, ensuring an optimal learning environment that produces exceptional health-care professionals. Provide for tuition waivers and stipends to attract and retain eminent graduate students across all programs. Attract and retain high-quality faculty and visiting scholars. Support global health-care missions to underdeveloped and underserved regions, which will provide students with unparalleled experience in applying their skills, helping them gain confidence and cultivating civically minded health professionals while also benefitting recipients who lack access to regular care. Mitchell Cordova, dean of the Marieb College of Health & Human Services, described Dr. Marieb as a leader among leaders in higher education and said she impacted millions of students and faculty throughout her career. As the pre-eminent author of undergraduate anatomy and physiology textbooks and laboratory manuals, he added, Dr. Marieb continues to guide students in the most critical and foundational courses as they prepare for careers in nursing, rehabilitation sciences and medicine. To have her name now associated with our college is an absolute honor and privilege. Our students, faculty and staff will forever cherish the role she has played in shaping our college into one of the best in the state of Florida. Dr. Cordova added he believes that after Dr. Mariebs $5 million gift, the $10 million gift validates the confidence she has in FGCUs faculty and staff in preparing students to be exemplary practitioners and professionals in all aspects of health care. We hold this confidence in the highest regard as we strive each day to honor her legacy with nothing short of excellence, he said.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELThe Infinti QX30 is your bargain MercedesIf a rose by any other name would smell so sweet, would a Mercedes by any other name be just as prominent? The new Infiniti QX30 is quietly trying to find that answer. Nissans premium brand is used to being on the top of the food chain. It might share many components with other more mainstream vehicles, but it also gets to keep many of the best materials for itself. But the QX30 is different. Beneath the Infiniti badge lies the heart of a Mercedes GLA. Park the two crossovers side-by-side, and from appearance its hard to tell that they are siblings. QX30 has exclusive sheet metal elements like the fenders, doors and rear hatch. And the face is the same panther-like squint that is shared across the rest of the company lineup. They have created enough differences that its difficult to see the Mercedes DNA in the silhouette, and in fact, there is an argument for calling the Infiniti the more attractive one in this blended family. Inside, the first impression of the QX30 definitely feels like it has a German accent, but not from Stuttgart. The clean layout where the gauges flow into the infotainment screen feels like a BMW. Even the interface control feels like the iDrive system. This gives the QX30 an exclusive feeling, because it isnt shared with the rest of the Infiniti lineup. But after taking a bit more time inside, the experience becomes much less individual. Those who know Mercedes-Benz vehicles will feel like they are looking at the Hocus Focus section of the Sunday comics as they spot all the shared components. The climate control knobs, the gear selector, power window switches, steering wheel controls, the speedometer/tachometer gauge package and much more is lifted directly from the Mercedes parts bin. Furthermore, the way the power seat controls are mounted on the door and the shape of the ignition key are hallmarks that Mercedes has been using for decades, and they are unashamedly repeated on the QX30. None of this sharing is necessarily a bad thing. The QX30 is the lowestpriced vehicle in the Infiniti lineup, and yet it shops for its components at one of the worlds best-recognized premium retailers. And this approach is utilized right down to the motor. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is the same one that comes is the GLA. In fact, its not hard to spot some tristar emblems in the stampings under the hood. So it should come as no surprise that the Infiniti and Mercedes both produce 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The seven-speed doubleclutch automatic transmission is even the same. At this point, the idea of having an Infiniti with a Mercedes motor might make some owners a bit nervous. After all, is it going to cost more and/or be difficult to have the QX30 serviced at an Infiniti dealer because its really just a German in disguise? The answer is likely, no. Nissan and Mercedes have entered a partnership that includes sharing this motor. The 2.0 turbo is already in other Infiniti cars, and thus, the dealer has the parts and knowledge about whats under the hood. And since we all know that Germans dont like boring cars, it means this QX30 is also quite lively on the street. Both the Infiniti and the Mercedes are two of the most car-like vehicles in the compact crossover segment. In fact, in other parts of the world, both companies sell a hatchback car based on these vehicles that look strikingly similar about an inch of ride height and some body cladding makes the difference. Thats why they feel nimble on the road and are some of the most sporting vehicles in their segment. With this Infiniti so close to the Mercedes, the real decision for most people should be about value. The QX30 starts at $30,945, nearly $3k less than the GLA. The price gap narrows as the option packages keep stacking up, including adding all-wheel drive to either crossover. But in the end, the main difference is that the Infiniti can get the key features covered for a lower cost, and the Mercedes has a longer list of luxury add-ons for a premium price. So, is value measured by paying less money or adding more prestige? Thats up to you. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

The free program is at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, March 5, at St. Ann Jubilee Center, 525 Ninth Ave. S. On display will be A Blessing to One Another, an exhibit that highlights the steps taken by St. Pope John Paul II to dramatically improve Catholic-Jewish relations.

The walk is approximately two hours. Meet at the tram stop gazebo near the parking lot. From 9-11 a.m. every Sunday, a volunteer naturalist from the Conservancy walks the beach (look for a bright orange vest) at Clam Pass to answer questions about shorebirds and give visitors a look through a spotting scope. The entrance to Clam Pass is at the end of Seagate Drive in Naples. Briggs Boardwalk on the way to Marco Island Although the boardwalk is open from dawn to dusk all year, volunteer guides man the walk from 9 a.m. to noon seven days a week (except on holidays and in inclement weather) through March. Tours set out at 10 a.m. The -mile boardwalk is a self-directed nature trail passing through five unique habitats from scrub to brackish ponds. Signs along the walk describe the flora and fauna in each community, and Conservancy volunteers are eager to help visitors spot and identify plants, birds and other animals and provide a spotting scope on an elevated observation platform overlooking brackish ponds.

U-S-A!Although discouraging the marriage of children in developing nations has been U.S. foreign policy for years, a data-collecting watchdog group in America disclosed in February that 27 U.S. states have no minimum marriage ages and estimates that an average of almost 25,000 children age 15 and under are permitted to marry every year (estimates because some states do not keep records by age). Child marriage is often allowed in the U.S. if parents appr ove, although no such exemption is made in foreign policy, largely to curb developing nations family honor marriages which often wreck girls chances for self-actualizing. (However, family honor is still, in some states, the basis for allowing U.S. child marriages, such as with shotgun weddings.)Compelling explanations Glenn Schloeffel, vice president of the Central Bucks school board in a Philadelphia suburb, recommended that science books be viewed skeptically on climate change because teenage depression rates have been increasing. Surely, he said, one factor depressing students is reading all that alarming climate-change data. Seattles Real Estate Services rental agency has informed the family of the late Dennis Hanel that it would not return Hanels security deposit following his January death because Hanel had not given the lease-required notice giving up his apartment. (He had cancer, but died of a heart attack. Washington state law requires only that the landlord provide an explanation why it is keeping the deposit.) Runaway math John Haskew, who told investigators that he was self-taught on the banking industry, evidently thought he might succeed making bogus wire transfers to himself from a large (unidentified) national bank, in the amount of $7 billion. He pleaded guilty in February in Lakeland. (He said he thought he deserved the money.) The highest bail amount ever ordered in America $4 billion for murder suspect Antonio Willis was briefly in play in Killeen, Texas, in February, set by Bell Countys elected Justice of the Peace Claudia Brown. Bail was reduced 10 days later to $150,000 by a district court judge, prompting Brown to acknowledge that she set the $4 billion to call attention to Texas lack of bail standards, which especially punishes indigent arrestees with little hope of raising even modest amounts when accused of minor crimes.Wait, what? Researchers including Rice University biochemist John Olson revealed in a February journal article that one reason a man avoided anemia even though he had a gene mutation that weakened his hemoglobin was because he has been a tobacco smoker that the carbon monoxide from smoke had been therapeutic. His daughter, with the same gene mutation, did develop anemia since she never smoked (although Olson suggested other ways besides smoking to strengthen hemoglobin, such as by massive vitamin C). Several death-penalty states continue to be frustrated by whether their lethalinjection cocktails make death so painful as to be unconstitutionally cruel, and Arizonas latest solution, announced as a Department of Corrections protocol, is for the condemned to supply their own (presumably less unpleasant) drugs. (There was immediate objection, noting that such drugs might only be available by black market and questioning whether the government can legally force someone to kill himself.)People with underdeveloped consciences Just before Christmas, Tammy Strickland, 38, was arrested in Polk County, and charged with stealing 100 toys from a Toys for Tots collection box. In February, thieves unbolted and stole a PlayStation from the childrens cancer ward at Wellington Hospital in New Zealand. Judith Permar, 56, who was found dead, stuck in a clothing donation dropoff box in Mount Carmel, Pa., in February (a result, police said, of trying to steal items), had driven to the box in her Hummer.Unhappy endings Clifford Jones, 58, was killed in a one-vehicle crash in Detroit in January, having lost control of his car because, according to Michigan State Police, he was distracted by watching pornography on his cell phone. He was also not wearing pants. Leslie Ray Charping, 75, of Galveston, Texas, lived much longer than he deserved, according to his daughter, in a widely shared obituary in February, in a life that served no obvious purpose. The death notice referenced his bad parenting and being generally offensive, and closed with Leslies passing proves that evil does in fact die.Least-competent criminalsWillie Anthony, 20, and Jamarqua Davis, 16, were arrested in Kannapolis, N.C., in February after, police said, they broke into a Rent-a-Center at 2 a.m. and stole a big-screen TV. After loading the set into one car, they drove off in separate vehicles, but in their haste, smashed into each other in the parking lot. Both men subsequently drove the wrong way down South Cannon Boulevard, and both then accidentally crashed separately into other vehicles, allowing police to catch up.

The company specializes in foreign exchange programs for secondary students visiting from China, Vietnam and South Korea. Host families are needed for the 201718 academic year. While most host families have teenaged kids themselves, local coordinator Jen Brauer says empty-nesters also love hosting exchange students. Host families and students both have input into their match to help ensure everyone gets the most out of the experience. Participating families have to meet a number of requirements, such as providing two daily meals and making a private room available to their student. In return, AnB Education Services pays for the familys background check, provides orientations for the student and the family and makes the local coordinator available for support and consultation throughout the students stay. Families also receive a tax-deductible stipend each month. Sue French has hosted exchange students, including several arranged through AnB Education Services, for 10 years in her hometown of Springfield, Mass. She started hosting students while her own children were still living at home, but they have grown and moved away, allowing Ms. French to continue providing a home base for students who are far from home and often hoping to attend college in the states. I like (learning about) the different cultures and they get to learn about us, Ms. French says. American children get a lot out of learning about different cultures and even becoming friends (with exchange students). Host families dont have to hover over their charges. Sometimes, though, the student and family choose to do everything together after school and on weekends, while other students only join the host family for meals. AnB Education Services plans and oversees outings and gatherings for students, and the kids are free to travel on their own for weekend trips. Everyone leans on everyone else for support, Ms. Brauer says about visiting students and host families in the same schools/towns. AnB Education Services exchange students must attend a private school, and the company recommends that host families have children in the same school. For more information about the program or to apply, email Ms. Braur at jenbrauer@anbeducation or visit www. anbeducation.com.

Drawing from research in the ALICE report and from work being conducted by local United Ways, Floridas 32 United Ways have developed a consensus legislative agenda to advocate during the 2017 Florida Legislature to help working families. United Ways introduced ALICE Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed two years ago to place a spotlight on a large population of residents who are working and earning more than the Federal Poverty Level, but who still have difficulty affording the basic necessities of housing, food, child care, health care and transportation. The first report found that 2.6 million households in Florida were ALICE. The updated report uses data from a variety of sources, including the American Community Survey and Bureau of Labor Statistics, to quantify the number of households in Floridas workforce in each county that cannot consistently and independently afford the basics. Among the findings: The rise in the Household Survival Budget in Florida was driven primarily by a 20 percent increase in housing costs since 2007. Wages have improved; however, when adjusted for inflation the percent of low-wage jobs is the same as in 2007. Households with children are more likely to struggle, particularly those with a single parent, with 79 percent of female-headed households and 65 percent of male-headed households not being able to consistently afford the basics. The Florida population is shifting significantly and quickly. The number of households headed by people under 25 fell by 29 percent since 2007, while households over 65 increased by 24 percent. Surprisingly, the more vulnerable of both populations are often vying for the same housing and jobs; nearly half of those over 65 are now in the workforce. The gig economy continues to move more jobs from full-time positions with benefits to part-time, on-demand or contingent employment. This creates opportunities for ALICE to fill shortterm gaps in standard employment, but also transfers many costs and risks from employers onto individuals. Florida United Ways have joined United Ways in 14 other states to to provide statewide ALICE Reports.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 A33 One of the biggest misunderstandings that the public has about cosmetic surgery is that the facelift is the be all, end all of procedures. Public perception is that a facelift is all you really need. The reality is a little more complicated. Yes, absolutely, a facelift can produce remarkable results and is an essential part of a facial rejuvenation! However, if you just leave it at that, your rejuvenation will be incomplete. Rejuvenating one area can actually draw attention to the other areas that havent been treated, especially the neck. the body where skin will start to lose comes to showing early signs of aging, the neck has the face beat, hands down. As you age, the skin around the neck starts to become loose as collagen is lost. This sagging skin can really impact your appearance, making you look years older than you actually are. A graceful neckline is one of the marks of youth and good health. This is one of the reasons that neck lifts are fast becoming one of the most requested cosmetic surgery procedures today. SURGICAL NECK LIFT Personally, my preference is to do a neck lift at the same time as a facelift, as the two surgeries perfectly complement each other. These two surgeries are at the heart of the Azul Natural Lift. Before we schedule your neck lift, Ill sit down with you to discuss your goals for the operation and explain the most likely outcomes. The procedure itself is very simple, and it takes about 2 hours. Before we begin, as in most surgeries, youll be administered anesthesia. Ill make incisions behind the ear and in the hair line to start to reposition the skin. The excess, sagging skin around your neck will be cut away. Then we simply close up the incisions and the procedure is complete. Generally, the recovery time for a neck lift is about 7-10 days, during which you will experience some swelling, pain and bruising. This is normal and will subside as the tissue heals. You can take general painkillers to help with the discomfort. I say with some pride that Im a master at placing incisions to avoid visible scars, so you can expect your incisions to fade over the course of a few weeks, until they seem almost invisible. You should keep in mind that the results of a neck lift technically arent permanent, as nothing can stop the aging process. However, it can be a part of an incredible, long-lasting rejuvenation that restores the appearance of youth for years to come. ULTHERAPY If you dont feel quite ready for surgery yet, or you simply prefer a less invasive option, weve had some great results with Ultherapy; essentially a non-surgical neck lift. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into the skin, promoting the formation of new collagen. This new collagen helps lift and support your skin, reducing sagging and restoring a more youthful appearance. One of the great things about Ultherapy is that theres no downtime associated with the procedure. Its completely non-invasive, and the procedure only takes between 60 and 90 minutes. Youll be in and out of the experience some minor bruising, but thats about it. As the new collagen is formed over the next few days and weeks, youll begin to notice a gentle lift in the skin around your neck. I must point out that theres really no replacement for a surgical neck lift or facelift. These procedures remain the gold standard of cosmetic rejuvenation. But if you wish for something a little more subtle, with less recovery time involved, Ultherapy can provide results you will love. ANTI-AGING SKINCARE PRODUCTS The effectiveness of a surgical or non-surgical neck lift can be greatly enhanced with advanced skincare products, such as those produced by Trilogy Laboratories. After a neck lift, I especially recommend the Azul Blue Diamond Neck and Dcollet Sculpting Complex. This fantastic skinfor Azul, was formulated at Trilogy Laboratories by my wife, Dr. Kristen ibly potent skincare ingredients to give the neck and dcollet areas an and sculpting. (And heres a little sederrire!) All of Trilogys products meet my exacting standards, so you can always be sure that you will be purchasing the best in skincare at Azul. No matter which route you take, surgical or non-surgical, choosing to have a neck lift is a wonderful way to reclaim your youth and start to look just as young on the outside as you feel on the inside.

ART GALLERY. DESIGN STUDIO. Complimentary Interior Design Team approach is changing the outcome of strokeStroke care has evolved from, Grandma had a stroke and she is going to get a feeding tube before she goes to a nursing home, to, Grandma had a stroke, was treated with the clot-busting drug in less than an hour at NCH, and then had the clot removed from her brain by NCHs wizard neuro-interventional radiologists and neuro-vascular surgeon. She is going back home almost good as new. These sentiments were shared at a recent educational event led by our stroke team to, at times, an SRO audience in the Telford Auditorium. The agenda was packed with facts, diagnostics, therapies and inspiring success stories about how far we have come in our community. National stroke statistics are alarming, with 795,000 people each year experiencing a new or recurrent stroke, resulting in 137,000 deaths. Stroke is the leading cause of disability in our nation, the second leading cause of hospital admissions among older adults and the third most common cause of death (behind heart and cancer). Early recognition, rapid diagnosis and effective treatment save lives and avoid long-term disability. Getting care quickly matters, which makes recognizing the symptoms of a stroke paramount. Public education can change outc omes. Here are the warning symptoms of stroke: asymmetrical face drooping, arm weakness and/or speech difficulties. When you see these signs, come to the ER or call for help immediately; time is brain. Stroke care at NCH is a team approach. Quickly recognizing stroke and stroke-like symptoms and transporting patients by Emergency Medical Services to one of our three ERs is first. There, within six minutes of arrival, a neurologist, with help from a Facetime/Skype type of robot and a specially trained stroke R.N., diagnoses the patient, orders a CT and MRI of the brain and, as appropriate, begins clot-busting medication all within 45 minutes. About 50 percent of stroke patients need intervention such as a coil to physically remove the clot or a stent in the vessel. Last year at NCH we had 1,200 stroke alerts resulting in 837 diagnosed strokes. The American Heart Association awarded us the AHA Elite Award in recognition of our having a door-to-administration time of the clot-busting drug of less than 45 minutes, always (actually, we are closer to 32 minutes).Much more important than recognition by awards and certifications, however, is our record of avoiding the devastating, life-changing results of stroke by providing rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke. Adding years of quality life helps everyone in Southwest Florida live a longer, happier, and healthier life.

A34 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Vanderbilt Beach Rd 91st Ave N Tamiami Trail N Tamiami Trail N9132 Strada PlPelican Ridge BlvdStrada PlaceMercato Dr for Cosmetic Dentistry Naples Center PET TALESPaying for pet care BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWhen Tiffany Gere of Butler, N.J., was considering getting a new puppy recently, she called her pet health insurance company to ask about the cost of adding a new pet to her policy. The advice she received surprised her. They said to purchase (coverage) beforehand and call to activate it two weeks before I brought the puppy home, she says. It takes two weeks to go into effect, so that way the first vet visit would be covered. If you are planning to get a puppy or kitten soon, a young adult pet, or even a fully grown adult animal, pet health insurance can be a good buy. The uptick in companies offering pet health insurance (there are at least 11) has improved coverage, which in the past was criticized for caps on payouts, exclusions for hereditary or congenital conditions, or poor customer service. Competitive pressure means that companies have a greater variety of plans that meet the different needs of pet owners, from the person who wants emergency coverage only to the one who wants help with everyday expenses such as wellness exams, vaccinations and nail trims. When I did the math, it was stupid not to have a policy, Gere says. Here, a dental exam is $500 or more. Bix, a 15-month-old standard poodle who lives with Janine Adams of St. Louis, Mo., has had several problems covered in his life so far. He had to have eight baby teeth pulled that didnt fall out on their own. Then he chipped a couple of permanent teeth, which had to be sealed. He also got neutered, had some ear issues and had surgery for an eye condition called entropion. In his first year, we paid $744 in premiums and got back $1,406, Adams says. That doesnt count the entropion surgery, which happened in his second year. We got back 90 percent of the $625 that cost. Whats covered can surprise you. One plan pays up to $500 for boarding if an owner is hospitalized for more than 48 hours, and up to $500 for ads and reward offers if a pet goes missing. Other costs that may be covered, depending on the plan, include microchipping, massage therapy, therapeutic diets prescribed by your veterinarian and pet activity monitors. Its always a good idea to check your policy to see if an incident is covered. Barbara Saunders of Berkeley, California, had an accident policy on a previous dog. She didnt realize it covered instances of dogs ingesting foreign objects, and failed to use it on the two occasions when it would have paid off. Submitting claims is easy in the digital age. Theres an app for that. Snap a photo of the invoice with your phone, and the app does the rest. Even without an app, taking a picture of the bill and emailing it is usually all you need to do. Depending on the company, reimbursement usually shows up in two to four weeks. Gere decided to wait on getting a puppy, but shes happy with the coverage she has on her collie, Jake. She pays approximately $100 a month for a wellness plan with a $200 deductible, and has been reimbursed $1,261 in the past year. It has paid for exams, bloodwork, medication, heartworm testing and prevention, flea control, and diagnostics and treatment for a urinary tract infection. If needed, her plan also covers laser therapy and acupuncture. Concerned about the cost? You may work for a company that offers pet health insurance as a benefit. Some 5,000 employers provide it, including EMC, HewlettPackard, IKEA, Levi Strauss, Microsoft, T-Mobile, Xerox and Yahoo. What I love is that it takes the money out of veterinary decisions for Bix, Adams says Pets of the Week>> Little Libby is an adult spayed female who will be most comfortable in a quiet house with gentle, loving humans. >> Lovely Lindy is a young adult, medium-sized spayed mix. Just like Little Libby, shes a bit shy and needs a family she can trust and feel safe with. >> Lucky Penny is a beautiful spayed mix who is deaf. She has started to learn hand signals and is working on her puppy manners. She loves to play and be with people and other dogs.To adopt or foster a petThis weeks adoptable pets are from Brookes Legacy Animal Rescue, an all-volunteer, foster home rescue organization.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 NEWS A35 THE DIVA DIARIESWhen the waves and waves come for wavesThey come in waves. Northerners, that is. And anyone who has lived in Southwest Florida for any length of time knows how it works: First we get the Canadian snowbirds who, because theyre often limited to only six months, typically arrive as early as October; then there are the traditionalist northeastern snowbirds who usually take advantage of the joys of a colorful autumn to spend Thanksgiving with their families before taking to the interstate the Monday after turkey day; and then there are the Midwestern snowbirds who stick around Ohio, Michigan and Indiana to experience Christmas with the grandchildren before they hop on I-75 to head down to our little subtropical paradise. Finally, theres the fourth and final wave the spring break snowbirds. And really, thats the wave that affects us the most because theyre actually coming inside our HOMES. The influx starts around the first part of March and continues with a vengeance until Easter Sunday and we cant be too annoyed or impatient with this wave because its made up of kin and close friends who are coming because we have guest rooms. Also, due to our close personal ties and/or shared genes with them, we are obligated to fetch them from the airport and drop them back off again. But, what else are we expected to do? I try my best to be a good hostess when friends and family descend from the frozen tundra, but Im not nearly as organized and hospitable as many of my uber hostess-withthe-mostest girlfriends. I have one friend that never fails to prepare a welcome basket for her spring break visitors (and she has plenty her husband has a big family from Pennsylv ania and she has tons of relatives from Indiana). She fills it with coupons and brochures for local attractions like the Naples Zoo, the Edison Ford Winter Estates, and the Key West Express. She throws in sunscreen, beach towels and flip flops she even leaves Norman Love chocolates on her guests pillows. Another friend prides herself on being a hands-on tour guide and takes the time to drive her guests all over she takes them to the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers, and then to airboat rides south of Naples all in one day (traffic does not daunt her a bit). One of my girlfriends is a champion shopper and the minute her family members hit the tarmac at RSW, she has their whole trip planned from the outlet malls of Sanibel and Miromar to Mercato and Waterside Shops. Frankly, though, Ive never understood the spring breakers who spend their week here shopping I mean, a mall is a mall is a mall, right? Although, I have a friend who, whenever she visits from Manhattan, would rather hit Ross Dress for Less than the beach. Well walk through the aisles of Ross as she fills her arms with clothes, Theres NOTHING like this in New York City Ross is amazing! Never underestimate the allure of discount designer shopping for someone who lives in the fashion capitol of America. The thing is, you just never know exactly what your spring break visitors will want when they head south. For instance, it could be quite simple the first thing my son who lives in Ohio craves when he comes down every April is a Pub Sub (a sub sandwich from Publix) he claims there is no sub on earth as fresh and delicious as a Pub Sub. I have a friend from Minnesota, who whenever she and her family come visit in March, makes a beeline for Sanibel Island in the dark before sunrise on her first morning here just to experience day break on the gulf. And, of course, there are those of us with family and friends who want nothing more than to be delivered to any random beach tiki bar where they can drink margaritas from plastic cups while listening to guitar players in Tommy Bahama shirts singing Jimmy Buffet songs, as they stare at other spring breakers doing the exact same thing. Get your guest rooms ready and start spring cleaning, Southwest Floridians theyre on their way and make a CVS run, too, because trust me they forgot their sunscreen. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com CHAD MCDERMOTT / SHUTTERSTOCK.COMCaptiva beach is a great place for vacationing snowbirds.

The Boston native realized as a youth that he wanted to be a business owner, but that entrepreneurial drive was unfocused. That changed when he was in his late 20s, when he stumbled upon a bankrupt hotel in Maine that he purchased and revived, launching a career thats still thriving more than four decades later. Its a career that ultimately brought Mr. McCabe to Naples where, since the mid-1980s, hes made a name for himself as a restaurateur and hotelier. He is perhaps best known as the developer, general manager and CEO of downtown Naples Inn on Fifth and Club Level Suites, which has received four out of five stars from the Forbes Travel Guide for the third consecutive year. Some people end up being doctors, attorneys, lawyers or professional athletes, he said. My passion was to start a business and to build that business. I really liken it to DNA I was born with A lot of entrepreneurs have that drive to start a business and the vision to figure out everything about it. Mr. McCabes first Collier County project was the Inn of Naples, a boutique hotel along U.S. 41 North that opened in 1986. In 1992, he opened the Inn at Pelican Bay off Vanderbilt Beach Road. Six years later, the Inn on Fifth debuted in a space formerly occupied by a bank. Expanded and transformed, the luxury hotel today boasts 87 rooms, 32 suites and first-floor retail shops.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYits animal hospital by more than three times, from 5,000 to 18,500 square feet, including new patient intake rooms, a larger treatment area and an on-site MRI. The practice is open 24/7/356. In addition to after-hours care, demand for daytime specialty services such as cardiology, neurology and canine rehab are a big part the hospitals growth. Dr. Eisele said the clinic will remain open during construction, which is expected to be completed Dec. 1. Besides new people moving to town, pets status as loved ones, an improving economy and greater awareness of relatively affordable ER services for pets have all played a role in more often keeping doctors and technicians up late to treat fuzzy family members under trying circumstances. Sometimes people use pet emergency rooms after hours instead of day-time clinics when theyre busy with work or other activates. For a lot of people, its the weekend and after-hours availability that helps them get their pets problems taken care of, Dr. Eisele said. More customers are also aware of specialty services such as putting in pacemakers or repairing torn ligaments, said David Zammit, hospital administrator for Southwest Florida Veterinary Specialists in Bonita Springs, which is open 24 hours a day, every day. When they know for a fairly nominal cost they can prolong the life of the pet that they love, theyre willing to make that investment, he said. Among other services, the Bonita emergency hospital offers a pet ambulance equipped with oxygen, a defibrillator, and everything else needed to transport a large dog under duress. For customers, costs at night are higher because of the need to pay staff a premium, keep surgeons on call, and to be ready for unpredictable emergencies. In our case, we do have to be prepared for just about anything, Mr. Zammit said. But the price for late-night care is often not prohibitive, and the difference between what you might pay during daylight hours is often nominal, unlike in ERs for people, in which just walking through the door can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars above visits during regular business hours. At Dr. Eiseles practice, a routine overnight exam is $85. From there, costs can be as unpredictable as the cases he works on. He might be able to remove an object from an animals esophagus relatively easily but an abdominal surgery could run to $3,000 or more. Unlike 24-hour hospitals that offer a range of day-time specialty services, Naples-based Dr. Erik Madisons practice focuses solely on after-hours emergencies. It is open from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. during the week and 24 hours on weekends. The owner of Emergency Pet Hospital of Collier County, Dr. Madison has been treating patients in the wee hours since 1993. Although an ER is not a substitute for a regular, day-time family practice, he points out, many of his patients have come to know him as their after-hours family doctor. And 2016 was a record year for business. We continue to be in a growing community, he said. I think the economys prospering again so more people are likely to seek help for their pets than maybe when the economy was bad seven, eight, nine years ago. One of the common cases he works on are large-breed, usually older dogs that suffer from a life-threatening condition known as bloat, or gastric dilatationvolvulus. Most owners think theres not much that can be done, he said. In reality, we work hard and very, very fast on them and we save over 90 percent. Throughout my career thats probably one of my favorite cases. Dr. Erin Ramsdell of Veterinary Emergency Clinic in Port Charlotte, which is open 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. weekdays and 24 hours on weekends, started at the clinic right out of veterinary school in 2012. During the winter season business can almost double, she said, and February has generally been the busiest month. The amount of patients were seeing now in 2017 than I was seeing in 2012 has grown pretty exponentially as well, she said. Were seeing a lot more people that say, I just moved to the area, not saying Im just here for the winter time. Especially up in North Port were getting a lot of people that say, weve moved here. Even in the summertime were busier than we were five years ago. Late night work can be stressful and unpredictable, but is also especially gratifying for Dr. Ramsdell. I love this profession and I love this little niche we have here, she said. Its invaluable to the clients in the area that someone is here to help them after hours. She and other vets compare working with animals to being a pediatrician, handling patients who cant explain in human language their need for care or where it hurts. Its always a very emotional experience at the emergency clinic where were dealing with peoples babies, and without them knowing whats going on a lot of the times its scary, she said. The pet cant talk and tell them how they feel. Sometimes it doesnt work out and she and her staff end up being grief counselors. Many times, it does go well. I had a case last night where I was here for a couple hours for a dog that came in for not being able to have a puppy, she said. We talked about having to do a C-section but with some medical management and a little time she ended up having eight healthy puppies and got to go home a happy mom. Those are some of the cases that make you happy and make you want to keep doing what youre doing.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY the Garden Court Caf, Windows on the Water, McCabe Brothers Steak House, McCabes Irish Pub & Grill, Bostons Restaurant & Sports Bar and Avenue5. Construction is expected to be completed in December on his latest project, a mixed-use structure at Fifth Avenue and Fifth Street with retail space on the first floor and 11 condos on the second and third floors, to be known as the Residences at Fifth and Fifth. Mr. McCabe was raised in the working class Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, the youngest of five children born to Bernard and Mary McCabe. After high school, he spent four years in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War, stationed primary in Pakistan and Afghanistan. He worked in intelligence, specializing in the analysis of the Russian missile space program. After being discharged, Sgt. McCabe joined the CIA, working in Iran prior to the overthrow of the Shah. He saved every penny he could during that four-year stint, amassing a $25,000 nest egg. It was a very, very interesting job, and the pay and benefits were good. I could have stayed, he said of the CIA. But I think I was born with this entrepreneurial DNA, so I was anxious to get out and own my business. He resigned from the CIA in 1972 and returned to New England, settling in Maine, where he could indulge a fondness for skiing while plotting his next move. He was 27 years old. While traveling around the state, he spotted a for-sale sign on the small, beachfront hotel that would provide a springboard for his career. After 12 years of operation, Mr. McCabe sold the hotel and his other now multimillion dollar Maine holdings and moved to Florida. After exploring other locales around the Sunshine State, he decided to put down roots in Naples. Since then, he has made an impact on the charitable front, awarding 85 scholarships through the Take Stock in Children program of Champions For Learning. He is also a major donor to Community School of Naples and a supporter of such nonprofits as the Community Foundation of Collier County, Gulfshore Playhouse and the Sugden Community Theater. My interest is first of all, to give back to the community, and in how the city of Naples evolves, he said. As far as my giving to nonprofits, my focus has been on children at risk. I dont know why, but I can identify with them. I have a large amount of compassion for children who are struggling or are at risk of failure for whatever reason.Interview with Phil McCabeBusiness mentor: My mentor has not been a person as much as a business operation. For example, when I was building my first hotel in Naples, The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort was just opening. I did much study of the Ritzs interiors, construction and operation while building my hotel When I built McCabes Irish Pub, I studied the operation of national chains such as the Olive Garden and Bonefish Grill. I would analyze the set-ups, the operation, the management, etc., and try to apply their successful principles. First job: As a caddy when I was about 12 years old. I made $2.50 for 18 holes. Business words of wisdom: Passion, compassion, tenacity, integrity. Favorite business publication: The Wall Street Journal. Ive read it every day since I was about 18 years old (now on my iPad). Love to read about the subject of business. Any job openings now? No. My operations are fully staffed, thank the Lord. Last time you had to fire someone, and the reason: Typically my managers terminate employees. I personally terminate managers and most recently had to do it last fall. It was an unfortunate situation where the manager was not performing to my expectations and to the standards of Forbes as a four-star hotel. I expect all to give their best, and to conform to the highest of standards in our business of hospitality and service to our guests. MCCABEFrom page 1 MONEY & INVESTINGMcDonalds hopes to maintain profits by discounting soft drinksMy wife and I are pretty much in synch in most ways but we disagree on really stupid things. For example, we both like to go out to eat but she always likes to get a soft drink with her meal and I tend to stick with tap water (or a vodka martini if it was a bad day). My point is that by ordering a soda, you are basically just giving money to the restaurant as it costs them almost nothing to produce it. It piques the value investor in me. She makes the point, however, that you are only adding an extra few dollars to your bill so why not add a Coke? Probably the big picture person in her. Well the worlds largest fast food company, McDonalds, just announced a new promotion to cater to both my wife and me. This new marketing push is centered on driving store traffic by focusing on drinks and lowering the cost to customers. So why is McDonalds embarking on this path and what does this mean for McDonalds and the fast food industry in general? McDonalds has had a stellar performance record over the last several years. Since 2003, the stock has appreciated by over 1,000 percent. The company has boosted sales through such innovative ideas as serving breakfast foods all day. But now the company, and really the whole fast food industry in general, is facing tougher headwinds. First, grocery prices have fallen dramatically, making cooking dinner at home even more economical than eating out. Second, people are more focused on healthy eating, which does not lend itself to eating at McDonalds. Third, the company is facing higher commodity and labor costs, which are expected to eat into earnings. And finally, McDonalds faces stiff competition from both traditional and new competition in the fast food market. Last year, McDonalds attempted to drive sales through food promotions such as the for $3 menu and other discounts. But the company needed something different to increase store traffic, and promoting soft drinks seemed like a logical choice. Gross margins on soft drinks are north of 90 percent compared to 60 percent to 70 percent for food. So even if the soft drink and McCafe promotions put a small dent in these margins, the company still will be able to boost margins and revenue by selling more high-profit drinks. So, while I can certainly understand why McDonalds is promoting drink sales through discounts and marketing, I do question whether this will be successful in driving higher profits. Slashing margins on your companys most profitable product may boost sales in the short run but what do you do next when customers just get used to lower drink prices? Slash prices on fries? Lower prices combined with higher labor costs due to rising minimum wages, higher beef, chicken and even gasoline prices all point to trouble for the American fast food leader. But the stock price is at all-time highs with a very healthy P/E ratio of over 23. To justify this high multiple, the company must continue to deliver both revenue and profit growth. I just dont see this happening, as consumers turn away from high caloric soda and food. So I would avoid this stock until it pulls back to a cheaper valuation or proves it can grow sales without slashing margins.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. A Buffett HeroWarren Buffett isnt the only investing master we can learn from. Meet Philip Carret, a hero of Buffetts, who died in 1998 at age 101. His investment career spanned 70 years, and he beat the market soundly. Carret started Pioneer, the third-oldest U.S. mutual fund, in 1928. Over 55 years, his average annual return was an impressive 13 percent. (The overall stock market has averaged annual gains of close to 10 percent over long periods.) Here are Carrets famous Commandments of investing, slightly paraphrased: 1. Never hold fewer than 10 different stocks covering five industries. 2. At least once every six months, reevaluate every stock you own. 3. Keep at least half of your money in income-producing securities, such as dividend-paying stocks. 4. Consider dividend yield the least important factor in analyzing any stock. 5. Be quick to take losses and reluctant to take profits.6. Never put more than 25 percent of your money into securities about which detailed information is not readily available.7. Avoid inside information as you would the plague. 8. Seek facts diligently, advice never. 9. Ignore mechanical stock-picking formulas. 10. When stocks are high, interest rates rising and business prosperous, keep at least half your money in short-term bonds. 11. Borrow money sparingly and only when stocks are low, interest rates low and falling and business depressed. 12. Set aside a moderate proportion of available funds for the purchase of longterm options on stocks in promising companies whenever available. Carret also advised: Always stay fully invested. Keep your portfolio well diversified. And noted, Traders rarely die rich, patient investors often do. When asked, What is the single most important thing that you have learned about investing over the past three quarters of a century? he answered: Patience. We can learn a lot from Carrets investing and life. He didnt spend every available minute investing. He made time for things he enjoyed, such as viewing eclipses around the world. IPO WipeoutA few years ago, I bought shares of Castlight Health, a software company focused on health care management, right after its initial public offering (IPO), for around $40 per share. The stock started falling, and I kept adding shares as it plunged. I figured that the more I averaged down, the less the stock would have to rise in order for me to break even. My average purchase price dropped to $21, but shares have been in the $3 range recently. Its a lesson learned. Ive built up my portfolio with better companies that make this holding seem insignificant. D.R., Morristown, New JerseyThe Fool Responds: Castlight has indeed been quite volatile. Part of the problem is that the stock started out overvalued it debuted on the market priced at a valuation of about $1.4 billion only a year or so after it posted just $13 million in annual revenue. Then the stock soared over 140 percent on its first trading day, reaching a market value of more than $3 billion. Clearly, the stock was way ahead of itself and likely to eventually fall closer to its intrinsic value. IPOs are often disappointing investments, as they can soar at first, only to fall back to earth later. Its best to give them a year or so to settle down. Averaging down is a risky move, too, as st ocks often fall for good reasons. Watch This StockShares of AMC Networks (Nasdaq: AMCX), the network behind the hit show The Walking Dead, has acted somewhat zombielike, falling 30 percent in 2016 and drawing the attention of value-oriented investors. The companys third-quarter earnings results feature operating income down year over year, while critical advertising revenue for its national networks fell nearly 10 percent and restructuring expenses increased. Think twice before assuming that AMCs recent woes are a cause for long-term concern, though. Its management team is executing its strategic growth plan with precision. For example, AMCs licensing and distribution revenue as a percentage of its total annual revenue is on the climb. Licensing and distribution revenue is considerably steadier than advertising revenue, which should help alleviate some of its cash flow volatility. Also, AMC Networks has a healthy blend of successful programming and new content. Go-to programs such as Mad Men and Breaking Bad still bring in viewers, while its pipeline of new content is gradually rolling out, including shows such as Preacher. Some, however, worry about the decline in viewership for The Walking Dead. With a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio in the single digits recently, the stock is an appealing portfolio candidate especially if the company delivers another big hit. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended AMC Networks.) I trace my roots back to California in 1940, when a barbecue drive-through was founded by two New Hampshire brothers. In the 1950s, milkshake-machine salesman Ray Kroc was impressed with the places limited menu and speedy service and became a franchising agent. He bought out the brothers in 1961 with $2.7 million and spread the concept around the country. Today Im a global giant in the quick-serve industry. I boast more than 36,000 restaurants worldwide, which employ close to 2 million people. More than 80 percent of my restaurants are franchised. I rake in about $25 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: McDonalds) Overvalued or Undervalued?QDoes an annual report show how overvalued or undervalued a companys stock is? C.C., Madison, IndianaAAnnual reports dont focus on companies valuations. You can see what value the market is ascribing to a company via its market capitalization (or market cap). Youll find market caps online at sites that offer data on stocks. For example, click over to finance.yahoo. com, type in a companys name or ticker symbol, and youll find its market cap. Its arrived at by multiplying the current stock price by the number of shares outstanding. A companys intrinsic, or fair, value is harder to determine, and different smart analysts will have varying estimates based on different assumptions about the companys growth prospects, among other things. Still, its well worth reading the annual reports of any companies that interest you. If youre a beginning investor, at least read the CEOs letter to shareholders, which offers a sense of management character and the companys strategic plan.The financial statements are even more informative. The balance sheet reflects the companys financial health at one point in time, including its cash, money it owes, money owed it, etc. The income statement (sometimes called the statement of operations) shows sales, costs and profits over a period of time, while the statement of cash flows will list all of the companys cash inflows and outflows during the period. The more familiar you become with financial statements, the better youll understand companies.***QWhats the big board?

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYFor sale: Baseball legend Ted Williams fishing retreat in the Keys TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMFor most people, the first day of spring is March 20, but for baseball fans spring starts about a month earlier when Major League Baseball pitchers and catchers report to their spring training camps in Florida. This spring, the fishing retreat of one of baseballs alltime best hitter is for sale. Seventeen-time all-star Ted Williams spent his entire major league baseball career with the Boston Red Sox, with time out as a Navy pilot in World War II and the Korean War. A six-time batting champion, Ted was twice the American League Most Valuable Player and Triple Crown Award winner with a roster of nicknames that described his playing style: Teddy Ballgame, The Thumper, The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived and Splendid Splinter. By the end of his career that ran from 1939 to 1960, he had a lifetime .344 batting average, 521 home runs, last player to hit over .400 and a career 0.482 on-base percentage the highest in MLB history. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966. Baseball wasnt Mr. Williams only interest. He was an avid sports fisherman, hosted a television fishing show, did Sears fishing commercials and was inducted into the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame. Fishing was always a great hobby and diversion from his baseball career, and during his downtime he enjoyed casting practice off his dock at his home in the Florida Keys. Now for sale is the home where he lived and honed his fishing/casting skills until the early 1990s. He found the ideal location in Upper Matecumbe Key on Islamorada in a protected cove surrounded by deep tropical landscape. Totally private, the site has bay views and is also in walking distance of Islamoradas quaint restaurants and shops. Its a short boat ride to some of the states best fishing spots. Positioned on 1.38 fenced and gated acres, the 3,193-square-foot home has four bedrooms, four baths, a separate gym and a guesthouse with three bedrooms. The exterior has an infinity pool and spa with a protected dock. Cheri Tindall of Ocean Sothebys International Realty has the listing for $4.2 million.

Whether your interest lies in selling your existing property or acquiring a new primary or second home we would be honored to assist you.2017 shaping up as a model year in Mediterra for London Bay Homes SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYLondon Bay Homes has accelerated its model home program at Mediterra in response to buyer demand for move-in ready residences in the North Naples 10-time Community of the Year. The builder has seven single-family villas and estate homes in various stages of construction, with another seven starts planned for 2017. Five model homes are open for viewing. The 14 new homes and five models all are part of LBHs collection of custom estate and luxury villa homes available in Mediterra. Designs offer an array of lifestyle options, including expanded lanais with resort-inspired living areas, studies, butlers bar, wine cellars, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, outdoor kitchens and architectural elements including porticos, trellises and arbors. The homes also will showcase LBHs emphasis on outdoor destination spaces, with elements including award-winning pool and spa designs. More than ever, a number of homebuyers are realizing they want a movein ready home without compromising upscale appointments and designer touches, said Mark Wilson, LBH president and CEO. The company manages all new home construction sales and marketing for Mediterra. Featuring interior designs by awardwinning Romanza Interior Design, the 14 new model homes will be in five Mediterra neighborhoods, including the newest enclave of Caminetto. Introducing Caminetto was a unique opportunity to reinforce our commitment to environmental stewardship in Mediterra by blending 15 homesites into a nature preserve and creating floor plans that seamlessly integrate into the environment, Mr. Wilson said. Coupled with our robust building schedule in several other neighborhoods, we are also ramping up construction in Caminetto with two models that will showcase our custom home features, such as a garden shower and yoga garden situated off the master baths. Mr. Wilson said the models reflect new trends that align with the vision of luxury homebuyers. Our clients today have higher expectations, he said. They are well educated in all aspects of design, architecture and style. They know what they like, and they know quality when they see it. In addition to the two models in Caminetto, three maintenance-free villa residences are under construction: the Palermo in Lucarno and the Bettina and the Clara in Cabreo. The homes are situated near the signature parterre garden, the communitys largest neighborhood park with formal gardens, lake views, sitting areas and a large reflecting pond with decorative stone frog waterspouts. Two single-family models, the Catalina and the Sardinia designs, are underway in Cortile, a neighborhood of single-family estates and maintenance-free villas. Models open for viewing include the recently completed Capriano models, one in Lucarno and one in Cortile, each with four bedrooms, studies, four full baths and second-floor lounge areas with wet bars and large sundecks. The open floor plans meld great room, dining area and kitchen, and flow through pocket sliding glass doors to outdoor living, dining and kitchen areas.Cabreo offers two furnished model homes now open for viewing. The threebedroom, three-bath Angelica includes designer finishes and accents of burnt oak, crimson and oak throughout its 2,810 square feet of living space. Shades of blue and taupe against white and beige backgrounds emphasize the relaxed contemporary design of Cabreos Bettina, a 3,110-square-foot model featuring four bedrooms (one shown as a study), four baths, a dining room and built-in cabinetry.London Bay Homes fifth open model is the four-bedroom, five-bath Isabella, a two-story home in the Serata neighborhood. Interior elements include a transitional design, travertine and wood flooring, and a palette of white, neutral gray, black and teal. Overlooking a lake, the models outdoor areas include an awardwinning pool with dancing streams of colored water emerging unexpectedly from the pool deck. Priced from $1,330,000 to $4,295,000, the models are available for purchase on leaseback. LBH is also offering new homebuyers the exclusive opportunity to purchase a golf membership in The Club at Mediterra without the delay of what otherwise is approximately a one-year waiting list. For more information, call 949-8989, go to www.MediterraNaples.com or visit the Mediterra sales center at 15836 Savona Way, off Livingston Road two miles north of Immokalee Road.

Using data on mortgages, state-level income and listings on www.realtorcom, the Realtors Affordability Distribution Curve and Score is a new monthly research effort of NAR and www.realtor.com designed to examine affordability conditions at different income percentiles for all active inventory on the market. The Affordability Distribution Curve examines how many listings are affordable to those in a particular income percentile. The Affordability Score, which varies between zero and two, is a calculation equal to twice the area below the Affordability Distribution Curve on a graph. A score of one or higher generally suggests a market where homes for sale are more affordable to households in proportion to their income distribution. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says a top complaint real estate professionals have been hearing from clients is a notable imbalance between what they can afford and what is listed for sale. Home prices have ascended far past wage growth in much of the country in recent years because not enough homeowners are selling and homebuilders have not boosted production enough to meet rising demand, Mr. Yun said. The new affordability measure confirms that buyers arent exaggerating about the imbalance, he added. Amidst higher home prices and now mortgage rates, households with lower incomes have been able to afford less of all homes on the market last year and so far in 2017. Reflecting a growing shortage of accessible inventory for most income groups, the entire Affordability Distribution Curve in January was below the equality line and the gap was generally wider at lower incomes, which indicates even tighter supply conditions. A household in the 35th percentile could afford 28 percent of all listings, a median income household (50th percentile) could afford 46 percent of listings and a household in the 75th percentile was able to afford 74 percent of active listings.Consistently strong job gains and a growing share of millennials entering their prime buying years are laying the foundation for robust buyer demand in 2017, said Jonathan Smoke, chief economist at www.realtor.com. However, he added, buyers with a lower maximum affordable price are seeing heavy competition for the fewer listings they can afford. At a time of higher borrowing costs, this situation could affect affordability even more as buyers battle for a smaller pool of homes and bid prices upward.Calculating last months Affordability Score further highlights the disjointed rate of accessible supply on the market across the U.S. Swift price growth and higher mortgage rates caused Januarys Affordability Score (0.92) to shrink nationally from a year ago (0.97) and also in many states. Only 19 states had a score above one (conditions that are more favorable) and just three North Dakota, Alaska and Wyoming saw year-over-year gains in their score.

Heading into the beginning of the spring buying season, available supply is more reachable for aspiring buyers in the upper end of the market and specifically in nearly all Midwestern states, Mr. Smoke said. Meanwhile, many states in the West and South have seen deteriorating supply levels over the past year. Buyers in these areas should know that it may take longer to find the right home at a price they can afford. The states last month with the highest Affordability Score were Indiana (1.23), Ohio (1.22), Iowa (1.18), Kansas (1.17), and Michigan and Missouri (both at 1.14). The states with the lowest Affordability Score were Hawaii (0.52), California (0.60), District of Columbia (0.65), and Montana and Oregon (both at 0.67). This shortfall of inventory at a time of healthy job gains in most states is one of the biggest reasons for the depressed share of first-time buyers and the inability for the homeownership rate to rise above its nearrecord low, Mr. Yun said. The only prescription to reversing this adverse situation, he added, is to build more entry-level and mid-market housing that aligns with current household incomes. The Realtors Affordability Distribution Curve and Score eventually might include metro-level data. It is updated on an ongoing basis at www. nar.realtor/topics/realtors-affordability-distribution-curve-and-score.

Imagine life on an untamed barrier island, with no bridge, and long before running water, electricity or the luxury of a hot shower. Hard to relate? This was Useppa Island at its earliest. The Footprint of Jose Caldez Caldez, one of the most noteworthy fishermen of his time, first visited Useppa (then Toampa) in 1772. Returning 12 years later, he established Useppa as the base of his seasonal fishing operation and incorporated several other fishing hamlets, from nearby islands, employing both Cuban and Native American laborers. The local catch, mostly Mullet, would be smoked or dried, packed in salt and shipped to Cuba aboard the schooners of Joseph Ximenez. In exchange, Ximenez would return with valuable supplies for Caldezs continued operation. After Spain ceded Florida to America in 1821, Caldez continued to build his Useppa-based operation to 15 homes, storage facilities, and about 50 men, women and children, free of any real regulation or restriction. In 1832, the first US Customs Officer arrived on Useppa, with responsibility to deter smuggling. Caldez continued to operate, but sold the Island to Ximenez in 1833 with the first recorded Deed: purchase price $373.00. The second Seminole War (1835) brought much upheaval to Useppa and its fishing industry. When the resident customs officer became a casualty of that war, Caldez found his fishing operation and his employees in grave danger. Caldez sought safety and returned to his native Cuba in 1836, at the age of 75. His tenure of 44 years on-island, makes him the longest owner of record. Today fishing on Useppa has greatly evolved. Whether flats fishing or offshore, while regulated, we have fast boats, efficient and effective fishing equipment, outstanding amenities and the unmatched Useppa Lifestyle. ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS!

Black Opal Books. 388 pages. Trade paperback, $16.99.Sarasota author Jane Jordan was born in England and returns imaginatively to the Exmoor area she knows very well. Set in the late 1860s, The Beekeepers Daughter is a novel of grand passions that lead to ruthless actions and of hidden secrets slowly revealed. As she learns the truth about herself, Annabel Taylor, the title character, hopes she can find the strength to use her untested, mysterious talent to save herself and those she loves from disaster. This includes the further development of her ability to influence the behavior of bees, for better and for worse. Annabel, who lost her mother at a young age, grew up as best friends with the son of the local blacksmith, her fathers good friend. As they grew older, their feelings blossomed into a strong, overwhelming passion. Jevan Wenham often could not keep his feelings in check; they would burst into violence. Though meant for each other, these two could lose control in unfortunate ways. When Jevan reluctantly decides to spend time with his mother in London in order to get an education and improve his chances for a prosperous future, Annabel is outraged. Her feelings of betrayal overwhelm her common sense. Her waves of attraction and repulsion are ferocious. Vulnerable Annabel is manipulated by a wealthy young suitor, Alex Saltonstall, who pursues her and eventually traps her into accepting his marriage proposal. Now Jevan, who has been imprisoned by the Saltonstalls as part of that trap, feels betrayed. It doesnt matter to him that Annabels consent to marry Alex saves his life. Gothelstone Manor, the Saltonstall estate, becomes Annabels prison. It is also the place in which the novels paranormal or supernatural dimensions exhibit themselves. Haunting voices and images suggest a relationship between the restless, agonized spirits of the dead and the destinies of the living. The history of women married into the Saltonstall family reveals a pattern of early deaths and bouts of madness. It is a pattern encroaching on the present and perhaps the future. Witchcraft is part of the lineage and legacy of the key families, sometimes exercising beneficial power, sometimes bringing only evil. The authors stage setting is enormously powerful. Her descriptions of nature, architecture, furnishings and garments are vivid and evocative. As characters scurry back and forth to meet one another, they move against a very real, if remote, landscape. They are defined by their meeting places and by their emotiondriven actions. Suspense is maintained through the ups and downs in the relationship between Annabel and Jevan, in the battle for power in and out of the marriage between Alex and Annabel, and between Alexs father and anyone who stands in his way especially Annabel. This ultimate battle is on the supernatural plane, and its sensory pyrotechnics are amazingly vivid. While the windings of hope and despair are dramatized in ways that are somewhat repetitious, Ms. Jordans luxurious prose keeps readers enticed, as does the bravado of her heroine. This title could be the beginning of Ms. Jordans second trilogy, the first being a gothic vampire saga comprised of Ravens Deep, Blood & Ashes and A Memoir of Carl.About the authorJane Jordan grew up exploring the history and culture of London and surrounding counties. After some time spent in Germany in the 1990s, she immigrated to Detroit and eventually settled in Southwest Florida. After a 15-year absence, she returned to England to spend six years in the southwest of England living on Exmoor. A trained horticulturist, she spent time working and volunteering for Britains National Trust at Exmoors 1,000-year-old Dunster Castle. This experience inspired The Beekeepers Daughter, a combination of the age-old struggle between good and evil with the passion and romance of the characters she creates.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYlargest witch hunts in American history. It lasted for decades. Sen. Joe McCarthy, who headed the red scare, claiming there were cardcarrying Communists in our government, also insisted we should root out gays, or sexual perverts and deviates, as he called them, reasoning that they were highly susceptible to blackmail and were a threat to national security. Others took up the attack. Not only did several thousand gay people lose their jobs, but many lost their livelihoods, their families and their friends. Some also lost their lives, committing suicide. At one point, the government was firing gays at the rate of one a day. The total number of people adversely affected is unknown. I happened to come across this book and was really surprised, says Mr. Howard. David Johnson, a professor at the University of Tampa, was the first person to put together information about how widespread (this witch hunt) was. He was working on a different project in Washington, and came across a lot of documents that had just been declassified. At the time he discovered Mr. Johnsons book, Mr. Howard was happily retired from a career as an Emmy Award-winning producer at Minutes and CBS, where one of the exciting parts of his job had been finding a story that people didnt know that had interesting characters and social significance. And while he was reading The Lavender Scare, he says, I got my old Minutes feeling: This was an incredible story and no one knows it. It pulled him out of retirement. I was enjoying life, until I came across this book, and found myself back at work, he says. He met with Mr. Johnson and obtained the rights to the book. The end result, almost eight years later, is The Lavender Scare, a full-length documentary that will be screened at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, March 11, as part of the seventh annual Fort Myers Film Festival. Even people who were right in the middle of it werent aware of how many people (were affected) and just how systemic it was, says Mr. Howard. There was a real conspiracy of silence on both sides: The people being fired wanted to stay in the closet, so frequently they didnt tell people why they were fired. And the government was embarrassed that they were still finding gay people (in government jobs) because people would say, Why did you hire them in the first place? Just simple suspicion alone was enough to start an investigation, with government workers reporting that a female colleague dressed in mannish clothes or that a supervisor walked funny. Mr. Howard hopes the film helps educate people about the extent to which The Cold War Persecution of Gays and Lesbians in the Federal Government (the books subtitle) happened. This has really not gotten a huge amount of attention, he says. Mr. Howards interviews with former investigators revealed how theyd link one person to another, and the types of questions theyd ask. One thing I found interesting was that a gay person would be investigated, and if they found out a straight person was friends with them, they would investigate him, too, because there was a question of what was the relationship there, he says. Frightening, frightening stuff. His research uncovered a 1990s interview with a government investigator by an historian who was doing an oral history of the time period. About the audiotape he says: (The government investigator) was saying, I was happy to find these people, throw them out of town and put them on a breadline. Ironically, Mr. Howard says, according to a report looking at World War II to 1991, the number of gay people who were blackmailed and betrayed their country was zero. There were 117 cases of people caught spying for foreign governments, but none involved gay people, he says. In light of these facts, I think really what they shouldve done is throw all the straight people out of the government, Mr. Howard jokes. In a way, he says, our own government was blackmailing gay people. Investigators frequently told someone under investigation that if they gave them the name of five other people who were gay, they wouldnt reveal that the informer was gay. You could say that our government was blackmailing them, Mr. Howard says. Give us the names of people, or were going to your family and tell them youre gay. A lot of people were allowed to resign, but no indication was made in their personnel file. Because of such deals, the total number of gays who lost their jobs is unknown. The government was aware, however, that gays were committing suicide over the persecution against them, Mr. Howard says. One investigator that was the one thing he expressed remorse about, he says. He had one guy who left his office and then shot himself right on the sidewalk. The documentary includes the last extensive interview with Frank Kameny, who lost his government job and fought back; he founded the Mattachine Society of Washington in 1961, a gay and lesbian civil rights organization. Members made history in the mid-1960s by picketing in front of the White House for gay rights. That took enormous courage, Mr. Howard says. They deserve the recognition they havent received for the contributions they made and getting the ball rolling. People refer to Stonewall (in 1969) as the beginning of the gay rights movement, but that doesnt honor the sacrifices and hard work of the people who came before.Continuing the vigilance The Lavender Scare is just beginning the film festival circuit. The Fort Myers Film Festival is the third or fourth public showing, with 25 more festivals to follow, and hopefully more after that, Mr. Howard says. He would also like to get it on television or Netflix or DVD. The film surprises many who see it, he says, adding the reaction he often receives is, How come I didnt know about this? And as a former newsman, That is the reaction that you want, he says. President Eisenhowers executive order wasnt repealed until 42 years later. In 1995, President Bill Clinton issued an executive order that reversed the 1953 order and gave federal employees civil rights protection. Specifically, until 1995, you couldnt get security clearance if the government knew you were gay, Mr. Howard says. People are surprised to hear that. Now were going to have to fight to keep the rights we already have. The prosecution of the 1950s and successive decades was a backlash to the more permissive time that preceded it. There is historical precedence of historical progress followed by reaction, he says. I think its important we keep that in mind and stay vigilant. I think its important that we know this part of history, and for two reasons. Its important to keep in mind that history can repeat itself. Im not predicting we will go back to the witch-hunt days, but I think we have to be vigilant about the rights weve won and work to preserve them and move forward. And second, he says, I think the film is a cautionary tale beyond just the gay community. It really looks at, in times of concern over national security, how easy it is to target a specific minority group and blame them. From time to time we have done that. He points to the internment of Japanese-Americans in World War II. And during the Depression, over a million Mexicans were deported; they were supposedly to blame for the Depression, he says. And today, theres a lot of discussion about Muslims. I think its important to keep in mind that there are people who, for political reasons, in some cases, unfairly target minority groups. And I think thats an important message to get across. Editors note: ancy Stetson writes about another Fort Myers Film Festival entry on page C10.

WWW.NAPLESZOO.ORG SUNNY DAYS,CLOUDEd LEOPARDSSUNNY DAYS,CLOUDEd LEOPARDSFort Myers Film Festival selection examines poetrys part in our livesPoetry matters. Im not sure if poetry is something people find essential and necessary, but I know that they want it, says poet David St. John. And I believe that theres something essential in a poem (like theres something) essential in a song, and its the same thing thats essential in a movie (or) a novel that you love. That essential something, he adds, is giving you the world in a context that makes your world larger. Mr. St. Johns quote comes early in the film, A Late Style of Fire: Larry Levis, American Poet, a 92-minute documentary that will be screened at the Fort Myers Film Festival at 10:30 a.m. Friday, March 10, at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers. It should come as no surprise that Michele Poulos, who directed and produced the film, is a poet herself. (Even the name of her production company, 13 Ways Productions, is named after a Wallace Stevens poem, Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.) The documentary itself is like a poem, or a series of poems, opening with lyrical landscapes and close-ups of the Southern California region and the ranch where Mr. Levis grew up. Thats what we were going for, says Ms. Poulos, who wants the viewer to enter a kind of meditative state while listening to the words of the poems. The film, which has a soundtrack by Iron & Wine, also contains readings of Mr. Levis poems (including a video of the late poet reading his work); interviews with his family, friends, colleagues, ex-wives and former girlfriends; as well as interviews with more than a dozen poets including Carolyn Forche, Philip Levine, Stanley Plumly and Charles Wright. The impetus to make the film began back in 2005 when Ms. Poulos went to Richmond, Va., for her MFA in creative writing at Virginia Commonwealth University. Shed been going to school in New Orleans, but Hurricane Katrina hit. They took me in as an orphan here at VCU, she says. As she was immersed in the literary there, I heard Larry Levis name all the time. I knew he taught here and died here, she says. Id been vaguely familiar with his work. But when I came here, I sensed his presence. There were a lot of students, friends, ex-girlfriends, all kinds of people with all kinds of ties and connections here. His presence was really strongly felt. And then, one night, she had the dream. It was a disembodied mans voice, she recalls. It woke me up, really startled me. It was like an instruction; it said I was going to make a film about Larry Levis. Making a film was not on my radar at that time, she admits. Id gone to film school (at New York University) and it was nothing I was thinking about. I ignored it, I kept ignoring it, but it kept coming back at me. I couldnt quite shake it. I cant explain it. It was one of those nagging notions I couldnt escape. She began interviewing people. Maybe a year into it when I created a Kickstarter campaign and we raised over $12,000 thats when it struck me, she says. I said, OK, I guess I am making a film. It took three or four years of filming, she says, followed by two years of editing. She initially edited approximately 200 hours of footage down to seven hours, before hiring an editor who worked on it for another year to bring it to its current hour and a half. Mr. Levis died an untimely death at age 49 in 1996. It was originally thought he died of a heart attack, but the film reveals he died from cocaine. It was a real shock to a lot of people, including some close friends, she says. Ms. Poulos says A Late Style of Fire asks the question: What is required of those who make a serious commitment to a life in art? Some people do have this sort of romantic, misguided notion that you have to be drunk and high to make art. For some people, perhaps thats how it is for them. The film offers multiple perspectives on that, she says. It doesnt necessarily answer the question, but a lot of the poets weigh in. To me, that was one of the most exciting questions in the film. I think for Levis, the answer about what was required, in the end, was his life story: the fact that he died so young answers that question, sadly and tragically. He did use drugs, but many of the poets who knew him argue that he was using drugs to stay up all night so he could write his poems. Not so he could obliterate himself, but so he could really have the energy to do the work. In addition to being a profile of the poet, the documentary is a look at why we need poetry in our lives. The whole film serves as an argument for the importance and necessity of poetry, says Ms. Poulos. Not only poetry, but the arts, more generally. In light of the threat of government cuts to the NEA and PBS, that message is even more important than ever, she says. In terms of what this film can do, I think and hope the audience walks away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of poetry. The film is really an introduction to the work itself. Ms. Poutos hopes audiences will be inspired to go out and buy a book of Mr. Levis poetry or poetry from one of the other poets in the film. As Ms. Forche, one of the poets in the film, explains at the end of the film: We turn to poems when we need them. Poems are read at funerals and at weddings for a reason. We turn to poems when our expression is not commensurate with the world, when the world exceeds what we can say and know. I also think that writing poetry and reading poetry allows us access to a kind of knowledge that isnt accessible by any other means. Poetry allows us to discover things writing it and reading it that we wouldnt know otherwise. While great masses of people may never read poetry, she goes on to say, she still believes its a critical part of human subjectivity and the experience of humanity Poetry is part of human life. The arts are a reflection of a society, says Ms. Poulos. When a society is healthy, we have a robust expression of that through the arts. Poetry is necessary.

Their great lead singing, tight harmonies, dazzling instrumental breaks and dead-on timing puts them on a par with some of the foremo st nationally-known bands. The band has a great on-stage personality. They make the audience feel that they are included in the fun the band is having on stage. They have a repertoire of songs and instrumentals that draws from traditional and contemporary Bluegrass, Country and other genres to create a show that is a treat for any bluegrass fan. Herb Washburn, President, Southwest Florida Bluegrass Association CONTRACT BRIDGEThe better way BY STEVE BECKERIn many deals, a favorable result can be achieved simply by going through the motions. Thankfully, for those who appreciate the challenges the game offers, there are many other deals where going through the motions will not be good enough. Consider this case from a regional team event. Both Souths wound up in three notrump after East had pre-empted in spades, and both Wests led a diamond. Both Easts won with the king and returned a diamond to Souths queen. A low club was then led toward dummy, both Wests rising with the ace and returning a third diamond to establish their suit. It was here that the paths diverged. At the first table, declarer was certain that West had the king of clubs, since it would have made no sense for him to take the ace on the first club lead rather than allow East the chance to win and return a third diamond. Afraid correctly as it turned out that West could win the next club lead and cash two diamonds to defeat the contract, South saw no choice but to play the A-K-Q of hearts and hope for a 3-3 split. After the suit failed to divide evenly, South led a spade to the king, took a spade finesse, cashed the spade ace and finished down one, losing the last three tricks a club, a diamond and a heart to West. At the second table, South also concluded from Wests ace-of-clubs play that leading another club would be fatal. But he saw no advantage to test the hearts at this point. Instead, he took his three spade tricks first. Superficially, this might seem to make no difference, but in fact it made all the difference in the world. West had to find three discards on the spades, and after letting go two low clubs, he was without recourse when the third spade was cashed. In practice, he pitched a heart, handing declarer four heart tricks and the contract.

Its crass and unrealistic, but worst of all, its an unfunny mish mash of a high school that is truly out of this world. Rated R.The LEGO Batman Movie (Voices of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Jenny Slate) Bruce Wayne/Batman (Mr. Arnett) adopts an orphan (voice of Michael Cera) and fights The Joker (Mr. Galifianakis) and other Gotham City villains in this spinoff of The LEGO Movie (2014). Its more than DC Comics characters who come into play (Sauron, Voldemort, etc.), which is part of the fun and it is a heckuva lot of fun. Rated PG. The Comedian (Robert De Niro, Leslie Mann, Edie Falco) Struggling stand-up comic Jackie Burke (Mr. De Niro) bickers with his agent (Ms. Falco) and finds a kindred spirit in a woman he meets in a soup kitchen (Ms. Mann). The jokes are hit and miss, the story labors and ultimately, Jackie is too pigheaded to root for. Rated R. 20th Century Women (Annette Bening, Lucas Jade Zumann, Elle Fanning) In 1979, a singer mother (Ms. Bening) asks two female friends (Ms. Fanning and Greta Gerwig) to help her 15year-old son (Mr. Zumann) become a man. Ms. Bening leads the stellar ensemble in this wonderful coming of age story that sublimely captures the travails of adolescence and the spirit of the 0s. Dont miss it! Rated R.A Dogs Purpose (Britt Robertson, Dennis Quaid, voice of Josh Gad) The soul of a dog (Mr. Gad) is reincarnated over four lifetimes, touching different humans in the process. It might appeal to kids, but anyone else even dog lovers will find the manipulative, forced drama tough to stomach. Rated PG.Silence (Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson) Director Martin Scorseses latest follows two priests (Mr. Garfield and Mr. Driver) as they travel to Japan to find their mentor (Mr. Neeson). It notably lacks Mr. Scorseses dynamic style, and as a result is a dull bore of 161 minutes. Rated R. Hidden Figures (Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae) African-American women and brilliant mathematicians Katherine (Ms. Henson), Dorothy (Ms. Spencer) and Mary (Ms. Monae) play integral roles in launching astronaut John Glenn into outer space in the early s. It hits the racial plights you expect and have seen before, but the performances are solid and it tells a great (true) story about three tremendous women. Rated PG.Fences (Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Jovan Adepo) In 1950s Pittsburgh, Troy (Mr. Washington) is an unhappy father and husband who blames racism for derailing his promising baseball career. Washington does double duty as actor and director, and his performance alongside Davis is tremendous. Both are shoo-ins for Oscar acting nominations. Rated PG-13.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 2-8, 2017 C15 239.591.3837 799 Walkerbilt Road, Naples, Florida 34110 BayHouseNaples.com Bloody Mary Pitchers & Endless Mimosas Sunday Brunch on the River 10:30am-2pm The Claw Bar Daily 4pm The Dining Room Daily 5pm LATEST FILMSBefore I FallIs it worth $10? NoWhat you do today matters, the narration in the beginning of Before I Fall tells us. We soon learn the reason for urgency: The main character, a teenager named Sam (Zoey Deutch), is about to die in a horrible car accident with three of her friends. If its your last day on earth, how would you spend it? Its certainly a compelling question, and one that director Ry Russo-Young only does a so-so job of answering. Imagine Groundhog Day as a teenage girl drama and you have the premise: Each time Sam and her friends Lindsay (Halston Sage), Ally (Cynthy Wu) and Elody (Medalion Rahimi) die in the accident, Sam wakes up in her bed to start the day all over again. Why shes only one to do so is never explained. You cant help but want to know why Sams friends dont experience the same phenomena, but this is where we must allow the premise to work on its own terms. It does work to an extent. Sam goes through the expected process of discovery, frustration, trial and error, freedom and then liberation. There are curves along the way but no huge surprises, leading to an ending that is neither logically consistent nor satisfying. Youre always engaged while watching Before I Fall, but that alone doesnt make it good. Some of the disconnect for this middle-aged male reviewer comes early on upon realizing these are bratty rich girls who love one another and their boyfriends, yet apparently hate everyone else. Theyre catty, spoiled and nasty to most everyone, all while calling one another bitches and having drinking and Sam losing her virginity as their utmost priorities. This might ring truthful for teenagers, but theyre not exactly redeeming qualities that endear us to protagonists. For example, theyre downright awful to Juliette (Elena Kampouris), a girl they refer to as psycho because she dresses like a vagabond and doesnt speak. The only gay character in the film, Anna (Liv Hewson), is ostracized for being different. At the start Sam prefers bad boy Rob (Kian Lawley) to the cute/geeky guy (Logan Miller) who has a crush on her, so you know where thats heading as she seeks redemption. And we might expect Sam to be mean to her parents (Jennifer Beals and Nicholas Lea), but shes even mean to her little sister (Erica Tremblay). The importance of the various characters has anywhere from a small to big payoff, but when you know whats coming its hard for it to feel fulfilling. The film is based on the popular YA novel of the same name by Lauren Oliver, and it screened at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Surely somebody somewhere saw virtues in Before I Fall, and when making the case that teenage girls could benefit from seeing it, Im inclined to agree. I just dont think theres much here for anyone else. a g s s f f p dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> In Lauren Olivers book, Sam relives the day of her death for a week; the movie gives the impression she relives it for much longer. naplesclubsushi.com239.261.43322555 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL 34103 6 6 MUST PRESENT COUPON.

Recently announced by Artistic Director Bryce Alexander, the lineup spans family musicals to lean-in dramas and disco divas to dueling nursing-home roommates. Well explore societal pressures like money, status and self-image and what we sacrifice to fit in, Mr. Alexander says, adding theatergoers of every age and creed will have plenty to engage with. Heres what audiences can look forward to: Sister Act: The Musical, June 29-July 30 in Blackburn Hall When disco-diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in a convent, where she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior.

She Kills Monsters, Oct. 11-Nov. 5 in Blackburn Hall This high-octane dramatic comedy by Qui Nguyen transports audiences into the world of the Dungeons & Dragons playbook left behind by Tilly Evans when she dies suddenly at the age of 15. Packed with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres and some of the nerdiest and most heroic characters to be found outside of a video game, its a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all. Maple & Vine, Oct. 25-Nov. 19 in the Tobye Studio In this drama by Jordan Harrison, Katha and Ryu have become allergic to their 21st century lives. After they meet a charismatic man from a community of 1950s reenactors, they forsake cellphones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties.

Miracle on 34th Street: The Musical, Nov. 29-Dec. 23 in Blackburn Hall: When neighbor Fred Gailey tries to woo single mother Doris Walker by taking her 6-year-old daughter to see Santa Claus at Macys, Doris is not impressed.

Charles Ives Take Me Home, Jan. 17-Feb. 11, 2018, in Blackburn Hall This poignant comedy by Jessica Dickey explores dissonance, defense and devotion through the story of a fathers love of music and a daughters passion for basketball.

To a car collector or soldier, it is a special kind of vehicle that can travel over all sorts of rough terrain. But to a comic collector, it is a brightyellow animal that looks a little like a dog walking on its two hind legs. It has a large red nose, tiny ears and is magical. Eugene the Jeep first appeared in 1936 in the comic strip Thimble Theater, along with Popeye and Olive Oyl. Eugene the Jeep wanted to help humans and always told the truth, although the only word he said was jeep. There were other characteristics, too. Eugene ate orchids only, could predict the future, could teleport himself and walk through walls. Jeep was so popular that he was included as Popeyes pet on and off in animated cartoons, comic strips and animated television shows from the 1930s and 1940s to 1987. Jeep memorabilia was plentiful, but a lot was not saved. There are old stuffed or wooden dolls, figurines, plaster carnival statues, toys, games and textiles. In 2012, a new Popeye comic included Eugene, and new Jeep collectibles were made. An old 13-inch tall composition and wooden doll made by Cameo Doll Co. was recently sold. He has a label on his chest that reads Jeep, (c) King Features Syn, 1935. A fan spent $1,044 to take Jeep home. An 8-inch version of the doll in the same auction sold for only $297. Q: I have a cameo vase with carved flowers, leaves and stems, some snails and bugs. It is about 11 inches high and looks like my other French cameo glass. The foot is marked A. Reyen, but I cant find out who that is. Can you help? A: Alphonse G. Reyen was an engraver and decorator of cameo glass in France. He lived from 1844 to 1910. He worked for several glass factories and artists. He is not in the most available lists online or in old books, but several of his cameo glass pieces have been in recent auctions. A vase the size of yours would sell for about $10,000. Q: When I was growing up, my grandmother had a strange lamp in the breakfast room. It looked like an 8-inch high cylinder that had a light bulb inside. The heat of the light made hot air that turned the paper or plastic cylinder. There was a picture of Niagara Falls on the side, and as the shade turned, it made it look like the water was flowing over the falls. I want to get a similar lamp for my son, but I dont know where or what to call it. A: Your grandmother had a motion lamp, probably made by the Scene-inAction Company of Chicago. The company made the lamps from 1925 to 1936. They were the first, but several other companies made similar moving lamps. They were interesting, but gave very little light. Ten years ago, the lamps sold for about $200 to $250, but today they are

Many World War II soldiers think the vehicle called a Jeep was named for him, because with his magic powers, he could travel the most treacherous terrain. worth about half that much. Q: I have a Walborg black beaded evening bag Id like to know the age and value. Its lined with thick black satin and has one small pocket on the inside. The mark inside reads hand beaded in Belgium. The beading on the outside is quite intricate, with a sort of lotus design on the front. Any information about this bag would be welcome. A: Walborg beaded purses were popular during the 1950s. Hilde Walborg Weinberg founded Walborg Co. in New York City in the late 1940s. Purses were designed by Hilde and handmade in Belgium, France, Italy and West Germany. The label on your purse suggests a 1950 date. By the late 1950s, some Walborg purses were made in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The company was in business until the 1960s. Copyrights for several of Hilde Weinbergs designs for Richere, Inc. were registered in 1967. The labels in some of Walborgs beaded bags read Richere Bag by Walborg. The estimated value is $110-$200. Q: Our church owns an 1892 German Bible signed by Kaiser Wilhelm. Its been stored for many years in a safety deposit box at the local bank. Its now on unprotected display in our church. I believe it has some value and should be protected, if only for the historic value of the Kaiser personally giving it to the church. I would appreciate any information you can give me about the Bible.A: Most old Bibles arent worth a lot of money, but Kaiser Wilhelms signature could make it very valuable. It would have to be seen by an expert to authenticate the signature. Wilhelm II (1859-1941) was Germanys last Kaiser. He reigned from June 15, 1881 to Nov. 9, 1918, when he abdicated and left Germany. If the church is going to display the Bible publicly, you may want to get an idea of its value for insurance purposes. If the book has a leather cover, it should not be displayed on a wood surface unless the surface is covered by acid-free paper. Wood is acidic and can damage leather. The pages should not be left open and exposed to light or they will discolor. Special archival display cases are available that allow the book to remain open, but they are very pricey. If an autograph expert determines the book is not very valuable, it can be kept on display as long as it isnt exposed to light for long periods of time.Tip: A hair dryer set for cool can be used to blow the dust off very ornate pieces of porcelain.

At one time, everyone knew someone who belonged to a spiritually based group like the Masons and the Eastern Star. George Washington was a Mason; so was Mozart. It was a big deal back in the day. But Masonic membership in the United States has dropped from postWorld War II highs of more than 4 million to well below 2 million, according to the Masonic Service Association of Burtonsville, Md. My own family can attest to that. Both of my grandfathers were Masons my paternal grandfather, Fred Simmons, never left home without wearing his Masonic ring and watch. My maternal grandfather, George Bolender, did not attend the mystical meetings the 42 years he lived in Florida, but he was proud to say he marked 50 years as a Mason.

Cost: $20 The Skinny: The railroads revolutionized travel. How else could Shriners from Pittsburgh have attended an Imperial Council Session 388 miles away in Louisville back in 1909? There were few paved roads back then. It would have taken days each way by horse. But even with the railroad, it was quite a novelty for people who had not set foot outside their own county to travel 400 miles or so to another state. Naturally, you wanted something by which to remember the event. Each year, the Syria Temple of Pittsburgh would commission a piece themed to the city they were visiting. This pressed-glass goblet, made by U.S. Glass, has a horseshoe on one side in honor of Louisvilles equestrian tradition. The base bears a motif of tobacco leaves (Kentucky grew shade tobacco) and Masonic scimitars. The glass is flashed with amber and trimmed with white enamel and gold, which show the wear of 108 years of use. One of the scimitars has a chip. The souvenirs were traded like baseball cards among Shriners, according to The Phoenixmasonry Masonic Museum and Librarys website. That takes us back to another time, one in which our grandparents traveled for the first time and no doubt marveled at the speed of change. THE FIND:A 1909 Shrine champagne glassthe calling, I always appreciated the work they did, from laying cornerstones to caring for sick children. I remember my Grandpa Simmons driving to Fort Myers from Belle Glade for meetings at the Scottish Rite temple that stood on Fowler Street, where a black-glass county building now stands. I have no doubt that he spent many an hour at the newer Scottish Rite temple just up the street from me in Lake Worth. I think of him each time I pass it. I remember Grandpa taking me to potluck dinners at the Masonic Lodge on Main Street in Belle Glade. Hed say to me in front of the crowd, Son, youre making me old. Id say, I think youll get old with or without me. And everyone would laugh before tucking into the meal. His lodge helped dedicate the 1928 hurricane memorial in Belle Glade. His wife, Miss Beula, wore an Eastern Star ring that sparkled in the sunlight, each of its points a different stone. Grandpa joined the Amara Shrine Temple in Palm Beach Gardens, where the swords and stars on this goblet I found would be right at home. It reminds me of a world in which my ancestors gathered in a quest for spiritual truth and unity.

Is that true? I really hope so! Lydia F., via email A: There will be a sequel of sorts in the form of a short film that will air May 25 for the Red Nose Day special, in support of the childrens charity that helps provide meals to feed hungry kids in America, safe places to live for homeless children, essential medical services for children and much more. (Go to rednoseday.org for all the details.) Red Nose Actually revisits the characters of Richard Curtis beloved 2003 romantic comedy to see what they are up to in 2017. Curtis original script will reunite Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Thomas BrodieSangster Martine Mc Cutcheon, Andrew Lincoln, Lucia Moniz, Olivia Olson, Marcus Brigstocke and Rowan Atkinson. Unfortunately, because of last years passing of the great Alan Rickman, fans wont get to see the 2017 version of Harry and Karen, played by Rickman and on-screen wife Emma Thompson. Q: How long is Outlander going to be on hiatus? Please dont tell me its been canceled. Teej M., via emailA: The Outlander drought or Droughtlander, as fans affectionately call it is going to last a bit longer. Starz recently announced that the 13-episode season three wont premiere until September (noooo!). Cast and crew recently finished production in Scotland and are set to start filming in South Africa. But good things come to those who wait: The powers that be dont want to skimp when it comes to filming the series adaptation of Diana Gabaldons third book in the Outlander series, Voyager. Starzs president of programming, Carmi Zlotnik, said in a statement: While Droughtlander will last just a little longer, we feel it is important to allow the production the time and number of episodes needed to tell the story of the Voyager book in its entirety. The scale of this book is immense, and we owe the fans the very best show.Q: Will Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt be back for another season? Scott H., Port St. LucieA: The 13-episode third season of this hilarious series my favorite comedy series by far these days will drop May 19 on Netflix. While we dont have many details as of this writing of what to expect next season, there is a hilarious promo video that you can watch online of series star Tituss Burgess doing his own version of Beyonces Hold Up video.

Project HELP has been caring and advocating for local female trauma victims since 1986, and at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, March 5, the organization celebrates the joys and hardships of womanhood with its sixth annual production of Eve Enslers The Vagina Monologues. First performed in 1996 at New York Citys Off Broadway Westside Theatre, The Vagina Monologues was hailed by The New York Times as probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade. Through a series of monologues, the playwright explores different aspects of the female experience love, sex, violence, birth and more by making the vagina a tool for female empowerment. Audiences for 20 years have laughed, cried and laugh-cried their way through performances. The show inspired the global V-Day movement, when organizations stage benefit performances like Project HELPs local production. As a fundraiser, the event has been a roaring success for the organization that has produced money, volunteers and a host of actresses clamoring each year to participate. Some, like Lucy Sundby, have performed since the first show six years ago (audiences have become attached to her rendition of the racy monologue The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy). Ms. Sundby has many reasons for returning each year, ranging from appreciating Project HELPs contribution to the community to growing up with a mother who worked as a victims advocate in Indiana. In this time of our nations history, its important that women feel empowered, she said. Its really important that people know there is help out there. I think the monologues are all beautifully written, and I like that theyre about real women who have dealt with real issues. This years guests will have a taste of director Jessica Walcks ambitions for next years performance when she introduces an original monologue featuring a local woman who depended on Project HELPs services. Over the course of the next year, Ms. Walck intends to put more focus on the organizations local impact by working on short scenes and monologues based on local womens experiences with sexual and physical abuse to present as part of the 2018 fundraiser. Its going to be pretty incredible, she said. These arent just stories that are at a distance from us, its something thats happening locally as well. People should realize that this is something thats happening in this community. Administrators at Project HELP want the show to evolve in such a way that audience members continue to be intrigued every year. By incorporating the stories of past clients, they hope to shatter the illusion that Naples is a vacationland whose inhabitants are insulated from misfortune. We live in a place where people think, Its Naples, its beautiful and nothing bad happens here, but thats not the case, said Nicole Pigford, the organizations advocacy and outreach VAGINAFrom page 1

These women are living here. People forget and one in six women in the country will be the victim of sexual or attempted sexual assault in their lifetime. Thats a lot of women in our county. While the rhetoric surrounding sexual assault escalated during the past presidential election, Project HELP saw an increase in women seeking its services because they were unwillingly reliving their own assaults. Weve definitely seen an increase in individuals who were triggered because of the increased conversation, Ms. Pigford said. Some were triggered because of the highly controversial comments going on in the campaign, (and some suffered) anxiety because of the responses to those comments. The benefit of that situation, however, is that sexual assault is a hot topic around the globe and has heightened awareness about its lifelong effect on survivors. Like cancer, people used to talk about it in whispers with their hands over their mouths, and that seems to be changing, Ms. Pigford said. I think it definitely has brought it to the forefront of conversation, she said. The fact that the whole entire country and world is talking about it on a global stage is a wonderful thing. The Project HELP production of Eve Enslers The Vagina Monologues starts with beverages and sweets at 6:30 p.m. followed by the show at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 5, followed by the show at 7:30 p.m. at the Sugden Community Theatre. Tickets are $60, with proceeds benefitting the organizations efforts to provide crisis counseling and services to victims of physical and sexual assault.

HOME OF THE FAMOUS IRISH NACHOS!HOSTED BY SPECIAL ED! VINODoing what comes naturallyIn a recent article, I introduced a relatively new phenomenon (or trend) in the wine world: natural wines. The piece profiled Peter Rizzo, who operates a wine store in Naples that specializes in nothing but wines that are made in the most natural way. Much to my surprise, delight, and personal vindication, the most recent issue of Wine Spectator devotes quite a bit of ink to exactly this issue, but specifically as it relates to how natural wines are becoming more widely accepted (and purchased) in France. As we all know, France is what you might call the mistress of wine. Most of the wines we enjoy have French names. Cabernet Sauvignon. Sauvignon Blanc. Chardonnay. So when the French start making a fuss about natural wines, we might want to pay attention. In an article entitled France Tries to Define Natural Wine, writer Susan Mustachich observes that wine bars in Paris that carry only natural wines have proliferated, and this type of wine has been enthusiastically adopted by young professionals, Millennials, and other major wine consumers. The problem is this: there is no legal definition of natural wine, neither in France nor the US. So what exactly are we talking about here? In France, the growing, production, and sale of wine are controlled by a government bureau known as the INAO. Right now theyre trying to sort out the terminology that denotes organic wine versus the words that are being used for natural wine. No easy task. We dont have anything like the INAO in the US. Here, the trade is governed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, which gives me the giggles every time I think about it. But the INAO is a powerful agency, and according to Wine Spectator, theyve more or less agreed that natural wines must be made from grapes grown organically or biodynamically, that theyre made only with indigenous yeast, and that winemakers make no adjustments to acidity or sugar levels. Plus, the grapes must be picked by hand. However, natural winemakers themselves cant agree on the rules. The article reports that natural winemakers avoid adding sulfites, a preservative that helps keep the wine from spoiling. Others say they do add some, but only in difficult years. And whats more, the INAO cant define any way to judge whether one winemaking process is any more or less natural than any other. So if the French, who have been doing the wine thing for thousands of years, cant figure it out, what chance have we got? The solution if there is one seems to be the standards and processes cited in my previous article, and supported by Peter Rizzo and other natural wine proponents. Natural wine is (more or less) organic wine with no additives and no external manipulation. Then the question is, how much difference does it actually make? People sensitive to sulfites and other normal wine additives might be better off seeking out natural wines. And certainly, a direct and non-interventionist approach to winemaking cant be a bad thing. Meanwhile, allow me to suggest that we all sample natural wines alongside our other favorites. The suggestions below may not be natural in the way we discussed above, but are naturally pleasing in any case, and well worth a try. Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 ($40) Aromas of earth, plum, and black cherry pay off with flavors of dark fruit, oak, vanilla and more. Medium-bodied and elegant. WW 90 Cambria Bench Break Pinot Noir Santa Maria 2013 ($17) A favorite, and unmistakably true to type. Smoke and lavender aromas lead you to flavors of raspberry, black cherry, and a delicate balance of acidity and tannin. Really nice. WW 92. Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2013 ($30) Medium translucent in the glass, but fuller-bodied than the color would indicate. Wildly aromatic and perfumy, with big aromas of plum, brine, and forest floor. On the finish, you should taste blueberry, red plum, and cherry, and a solid note of tannin. WW 94.Ask the Wine Whisperer What part does yeast play in the making of wine? Ken C., Parkland FLNo yeast, no wine. Yeast grows naturally on grape skins, and when it comes in contact with juice, fermentation occurs. This is when yeast digests sugar and spit out alcohol, though its much more complicated than that. Problem is, that naturally-occuring, or indigenous, yeast often isnt enough to complete the process, so winemakers add specially-grown strains during fermentation.

James Fraser, accomplished culinary artist that he is, does not own a restaurant or a catering company. Instead, he uses his vast talents to teach future hospitality professionals at Florida Gulf Coast University how to keep the rest of us fat and happy once they embark on their own careers. In addition to working in restaurants around the world, performing agricultural and culinary research and working as a restaurant consultant, Mr. Fraser also runs the nonprofit Institute for Culinary Awareness, Research and Education with his wife, Courtney, to increase community engagement with food. Read on to learn more about Fraser and his work. Q: What inspired you to become a chef? A: It was necessity rather than inspiration. Originally, after leaving college I anticipated working with outdoor expedition outfitters for teens. But I was unable to pin down paying opportunity and ended up relying on previous food service experience. Working food service was always a blast. I never went hungry, always found work in great locations, usually ate well and often was compensated in the most unique ways. While interviewing at a Dallas hot spot, The Greenroom, the executive chef asked me if I was a freak, and without hesitation I said, I suppose it depends on who you ask. He said, Food, because we only hire freaks. He was one of the best Ive worked for; his creativity affected all around him. I made enough cash working for him that after three months I moved to Paris for three years. Q: What motivated you to move from the restaurant industry to academia? A: I was weary of working with others, and I tried for several years to move to academia From Rhode Island I followed my wife, who was hired as a rock DJ, to Miami and ended up working at Le Cordon Bleu in Miami Eventually, I followed my wife to another gig at a station in Fort Myers. Shortly after relocating, I was invited to teach as a paraprofessional at FGCU. Three years ago it led to a full-time faculty position. Its greatly satisfying. Q: How do your describe your typical classroom and assignments? A: There is nothing typical about my class or the assignments given to the students. I break each class into groups of five or six students who rotate through six positions in our kitchen lab and executive dining room. There are cooks, servers/bartenders, dishwashers and three lucky groups that serve as guests. The objective is to prepare, serve and report on a fine dining lab exercise My students skills are recognized by many of our local industry leaders. Youll find our students in most of the areas fine clubs, restaurants, resorts and spas. Q: You worked as a guest lecturer at Southern Royal Hotel in Madras, India, where you also learned how to prepare Indian cuisine. How would you characterize that period on your career? A: I had already been living outside the U.S. for several years, but nothing could have prepared me for what I encountered while in India. Living in Madras and visiting the surrounding areas, I was profoundly touched by the connection between the people and the food. I formed a deeper appreciation for the energy transferred from the food we eat. I am forever changed and grateful for the revelations I had while immersed in the rich cultural heritage and identity of Southern India. Q: Are your students particularly interested in any specific topics? What do you think they find challenging that you address in the classroom? A: Our students are extremely eager to learn about a variety of topics and with limited experience, they are curious about the nature of the hospitality industry. I believe they are most challenged with reporting in an objective nature and engaging during lectures, so we usually prepare a coffee and snack service as a part of the daily lesson plan during lectures. This practice tends to stimulate their attention and creates some comfort in the professional environment of the classroom. Q: You and your wife, Courtney, run the Institute for Culinary Awareness, Research and Education out of FGCU. What is your organizations mission and work? A: We established ICARE to promote civic engagement through community impact initiatives. We have had significant effects in the Pine Manor community (in Fort Myers), where we used grants to develop a commercial kitchen to create scholarship opportunities in food service, training and certification for teens and adults. We also have a community garden that provides fresh vegetables and fruits to a community identified as a food desert. The garden also generates revenue from the sale of surplus vegetables at local farmers markets. Most recently, we are developing a food forest corridor between a recreational park and the community center. Although ICARE is not a FGCU program, we run a series of professional and personal development classes through the universitys continuing education program. We are developing initiatives within the FGCU School of Resort and Hospitality Management that embrace and share many of its core values to address a critical need for professional food service training in our local area. Q: Which dishes are you particularly proud of? A: At our house, menus range from roasted chicken and rice to Vietnamese spring rolls and pho. However, if you were going to pick a night to have dinner with us, you would want to have osso bucco in a red wine demi-glace with lentils and shaved Brussels sprouts. I am also particularly fond of my hollandaise sauce. Q: What do you find challenging? A: I just dont understand why such severe disconnect from food is occurring and why we havent revised our approach to food systems, food choices and meal times. I have met several people who have food phobias and limit their food choices to five items or even fewer usually rice, French fries, chicken nuggets and maybe a fruit or specific vegetable. Also, mealtime in other countries is a cherished ritual to connect with families and friends and celebrate food that is never to be abused, wasted or discarded without purpose. Q: What has been one of your favorite culinary experiences? A: Without doubt the four-hour, 12-course meal I ate at Guy Savoys restaurant in Paris. At about $800 per person, its also the most expensive meal Ive eaten. As the main course, a double bonein, center-cut pork chop was cut tableside from the center of an eight-bone roasted rack. I wept with contained jubilee. I often wonder what happened to the other ends of the roast.

Kalea Bay releases second tower as first tower approaches selloutPrices start at $1.3 millionKalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, highrise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, announced the communitys second tower has been released for sale. Our first tower, which is under construction and scheduled to be completed this fall, has already surpassed the 80 percent sold mark, stated Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. All residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Wilson. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Wilson. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Wilson said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Wilson. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed this fall. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Wilson. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. The amenities at Kalea Bay rival some of the finest in the world, said Wilson. Our indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico. The custom kitchens feature Wolf and SubZero appliances and an oversized island. Kalea Bay residences have very open floor plans. The 88,000-square-foot clubhouse features three separate pools, a deck bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant and an Internet cafe.

6 MARCH 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES-BONITA SPRINGS FLORIDA WEEKLY Thewater schoolSW Floridas team of boating and fishing expertsThey have four sets of eyes. As professionals, they come with a combined 120 years of close observation and experience. Theyre curious and analytical by temperament, people born to live, work and play on Gulf coast waters, either fresh or salt. And one more thing: They have the gift of gab, so to speak a willingness to share what they know in person as guides, and in print, online or on-air as outdoor writers and educators. Who are they? Here, Florida Weekly introduces you to the 2017 Water School, as we call it: Capt. Ralph Allen, owner of the King Fisher Fleet based in Port Charlotte; Betsy Clayton, longtime boating and outdoors writer for The NewsPress and Florida Weekly and now a communications director for Lee County; Capt. Rob Modys, host of Reel Talk radio (99.3 FM) and a not-quite-retired spin and fly-fishing guide; and Byron Stout, an award-winning, 35-year outdoors and sports fishing columnist at The News-Press in Fort Myers. These men and women, arguably, have cast the widest net of knowledge on the southern Gulf coast aimed at introducing Floridians, Americans and international visitors to boating and fishing in the region. From Port Charlotte to Marco Island a mere 85 miles or so as the seagull flies theyve spent many years teaching countless individuals how to love and understand water, fish and boats. Theyre not merely guides or media personalities, either. Theyre also and informally scientists and teachers deeply knowledgeable defenders of the water world who continue to explore, to gather knowledge, and to share what they learn every single day. Its likely not much of an exaggeration to say that, between them, they know every square mile of both fresh and salt waters in Southwest Florida. And thats saying something. In Collier, 307 of the countys 2,305 square miles, or 13.3 percent, are water, according to the U.S. Census Bureau; within Lee Countys 1,212 square-mile expanse, 428 square miles are water, or 35.4 percent; and in Charlotte, 178 of the countys 858 square miles, or 20.7 percent, are water. The members of our 2017 Water School started boating and fishing here as children or as relatively young men and women coming from other careers or experiences. Capt. Allen, raised in Missouri, arrived on the Southwest coast at 16. After earning a college degree in oceanic engineering, he helped design the interiors of Los Angeles class nuclear submarines at a Virginia shipyard for a few years. But the Gulf coast kept calling him, he says, so he returned to take the helm of the business his father had started, King Fisher Fleets. That was 25 years ago. Now the Southwest Florida Field Editor of Florida Sportsman Magazine and a past president of the Florida Outdoor Writers Association, he is the author of the University of Florida book, A Tackle-Box Guide to the Fishes of Southwest Florida.

8 MARCH 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES-BONITA SPRINGS FLORIDA WEEKLY owned since they were about 20. (They have a variety of other boats, too.) They used it to fish and explore even before they married in the Pacific Northwest decades ago. They raised their daughter, Junco, in their Mad River canoe and 17-foot Mako. Although shes studying at the University of Southern California these days, the various boats remain an active part of the Claytons Floridaloving household. Capt. Rob Modys, who grew up fishing Clearwater beaches, had an ascending career in IT for a big bank before (long ago) he was laid off; so he became a licensed captain and fishing guide and now the owner of SoulMate Communications. Capt. Modys hosts Reel Talk on 99.3 FM, hes the immediate past president of the Florida Outdoor Writers Association, and hes endorsed by Bass Pro Shops. Byron Stout, born into a long line of Southwest Florida pioneers on the Caloosahatchee River, started fishing these waters when he was about 5 (as youll learn below), before becoming one of the most widely experienced and capable writers about water and fish in the Sunshine State. Hes anchored generations of readers of The News-Press in Fort Myers to a solid understanding and growing awareness of the joys and responsibilities of fishing on the Gulf coast. A U.S. Army veteran of Vietnam, he once ran an advertising agency before turning his first love (fishing) into a vocation instead of just an avocation. Here, the members of Florida Weeklys 2017 Water School share some thoughts about what theyve seen in their years on salt and fresh.Capt. Ralph Allen:I caught every fish you could catch in Missouri until I was 16, so Id seen it all, there. Then I came to Florida. Ill never leave here again. Here you can get 15 species of fish in an hour, and Ive done that the diversity of habitats, the size range, the odd-ballness it far exceeds things a Missouri boy would ever see in the Midwest. And even the same fish can be approached in different ways here, so catching it once is a different experience than catching it again. You can catch snook while looking at bikiniclad girls on a beach or go back into the black waters while swatting mosquitos. Youre just never going to do it all down here. Asked if he considers himself a scientist, since good guides develop a detailed knowledge of marine geography and biology by spending years watching, gathering empirical data and comprehending what they see on the water, as scientists do, he said: Im not sure where to draw the line between scientist and observer, because a good scientist has to be an observer, and so does a good guide. Ive chased fish a lot, observed where they go, how they move, what makes them tick, including some subtle things that play a big part in your ability to predict where and how they will be caught. As a guide, you have to be at least a student of the fishes. But I think of a scientist as someone who may advance the knowledge of the fishery. If you include all the little wee stuff that never gets more than an inch long there are hundreds and hundreds of species here, so theres always something new. If you catalogue an anglers catch in saltwater, you have to work at it but you can get the list up to 100 or 150 species without too much trouble. And if you jump over to fresh water and count the non-natives, too, you can get another 20 to 25 species.Betsy Clayton: The first story I ever told about boaters and the outdoors here described how even seasoned boaters run aground. Everybody thinks newcomers are the only ones who dont realize it gets shallow real quick around here. But I interviewed lots of new boaters as well as longtime boaters, and it happens to everybody. So you have to kind of pretend it was for a different reason. I remember one longtime boater, and after he had the unfortunate experience of running aground, he said hed had some spray on his sunglasses, and thats why he didnt see those wading birds on a sandbar wherever you see wading birds, you know its shallow. That was kind of funny. When Stan and I moved here in 1993 looking for jobs in journalism, we had only looked at places situated on estuaries. We love bird watching (from a boat). So we had an 11.5-foot skiff with a 7.5 horsepower Mercury engine. But now we have your basic 20-ft Seacraft center console for fishing and bird-watching and going to waterfront restaurants and visiting places you cant get to by car, like Cayo Costa. If you have a boat in Lee County, youre a lucky person. A lot of people think you have to have a lot of income to have a boat, which is pretty much the case if you live on the east coast in the condo canyons. But here you can have a small boat and enjoy the same activities people elsewhere have to have big, expensive boats to enjoy. Here, its not an issue of income; its an issue of desire. Since boating is affordable here, you can have different boats for different things, like a woman having different shoes for different outfits. So we have a canoe, a tandem kayak, single kayaks, we have a skiff, a power boatCapt. Rob Modys:Ive always loved fishing from the time I was a young boy. I grew up in Clearwater, and we fished the beach up there and an old bridge converted to a pier. I had grandfathers who liked to fish, so the addiction carried on if I went to visit one of my grandfathers in New Jersey or in Virginia, we went fishing. I lived in Louisville, Kentucky, once, some of the nicest people I ever knew, and met a guy named Garry Beckley. Garry introduced me to creek fishing marching into the woods, which in Florida you dont do unless you want to get eaten by something. We were targeting smallmouth bass, and I fell in love with it. I went back to Florida figuring Id retire at 62 and become a fishing guide, but when I got laid off (from Bank of America), I got my captains license. I was in my middle 40s. When that happened to me, I took a loved hobby and turned it into a job. To completely switch gears, and to go from the IT to the fishing world, is an amazing thing. I approached the job of fishing like all other jobs, by learning everything about it, including marketing how to build a clientele. I still love fishing. I learned a lot about back-bay systems, how they function, how all creatures get along. Being a guide was like taking a 15-year science class. The person with the eyes on the water is going to be more knowledgeable about how it works. (Capt. Modys was forced into a semi-retirement by cancer; hes gotten ahead of it now.) I have fished with parents and their young children, and the children later came back with their girlfriends or wives and they started on their first fishing trips when they were seven or eight. As far as giving away my best fishing spots by talking about it and telling other people, Im not worried about it. A fishing guide goes out every day and has spots he fishes, but every spot has a window of only about 45 minutes or an hour where fish will be there. The only way you can learn that is time on water, or TOW, we call it. You have to be out there a lot to learn the science, what weather pushes the fish, what makes them do what they do. (Asked if high-tech fishing aids reduce the need for longtime knowledge and experience): Offshore yes: a GPS, depth finders, they paint a sophisticated picture. But inshore, good old-fashioned, onthe-job knowledge works best. Google Earth has been a boon to fishing. Where we used to go out and explore the backcountry, say Estero Bay with all these hidden creeks, you can pop up Google Earth and see whats there. Knowledge is still key, though: Im sure thats why the radio show is popular. People tune in to learn from me and my guests.

time on the Caloosahatchee River. I can remember swatting tarpon with a cane pole from a seawall. I used to catch things you cant now: One day a friend of mine gigged two sawfish, now a critically endangered species. I really believe in family fishing for food, because I think that is what inspires great conservationists. Its wellknown that fishermen are the great conservators of fisheries, and recreational fishing in particular. Now in Florida its an $8.9 billion a year economy, according to the Fish and Wildlife Commission. Most of that is saltwater fishing. There certainly are problems with the environment degradation of the environment is a big factor in fishing, and fisherman fight to protect the environment. Unfortunately now, there are a lot of well-meaning people who want to ban even family fishing in great swaths of water. Thats just shooting conservation in the foot in my mind. For kids to go catch fish and then get to go home and eat it, just strengthens their appreciation of the value of the environment, and makes them champions of it. Unfortunately our best days on the water may be behind us. But a lot of things have made comebacks because of the (1996) net ban: mullet for instance. Everything feeds on mullet throughout their lifetimes, from the time theyre fry and food for pelicans until the dolphins and sharks are after them. Theyre a prey species they feed at the bottom of the food chain but provide food for all the rest. Mullet have made a comeback, and there are other stories like that. But King Mackerel have never come back, though you can still go out there and catch one. On the biggest bass he ever caught, a couple of weeks ago in his urban neighborhood pond: I was testing snook lures in my neighborhood pond. I have a friend, a good captain, and he convinced me that putting tails on lures really adds to their fish-catching ability, their attractiveness. So Ive modified some lures. A She-Dog is a good one to begin with. I did one zig and one zag with that lure, and it looked like a toilet flushed underneath it. 10 MARCH 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES-BONITA SPRINGS FLORIDA WEEKLY Byron Stout remembersThey say you never forget your first, and in my case, truer words were never spoken. I was five and excited from the moment Dad had rigged up a couple of cane poles in our carport. We were going fishing! Whatever that was. We ended up on the Moody ranch in North Fort Myers, at a cattle pond recommended by Mr. Moody. Dad threaded a worm on a hood, showed me how to swing it into the murky water, and set me to the task. Im still a little vague on the details these 64 years hence, but the next thing I knew, something was trying to pull my pole from my frantic little hands. Dad did exactly the right thing, which was nothing, except to cheer me on. But try as I might, given a pole several times my own height, I could not lift whatever demon was trying to pull me into its watery lair. Finally, I just started backing up, and to my everlasting wonderment, a fat brown fish soon was thrashing on the slippery slope of the pond. It was quite a large yellow bullhead, slimy and bewhiskered, and simply more amazing than anything Id ever experienced. If I wasnt hooked (to pile on the triteness) by the battle, Moms cornmealbreaded-and-fried spoils of victory sealed the deal that night. And even now, when Im not fishing, I still dream about it. The only thing I can think of that could be more satisfying than fishing as a recreational pursuit is fishing and writing about it for a living. Some folks, as they say, have all the luck.

12 MARCH 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES-BONITA SPRINGS FLORIDA WEEKLY SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe boating lifestyle in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties is one for people who are passionate about varied waterbased 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. 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 many boaters do: 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 you 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, 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 SW Florida offers many ways to enjoy water-based recreationLifewateron the

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-toaccess 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, such as 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 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.

18 MARCH 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES-BONITA SPRINGS FLORIDA WEEKLY Boats charted course for Southwest Florida development BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentTheir names evoke a long-ago America, a time before planes, helicopters and air-conditioned 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 bigcity 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 eraIn 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 COURTESY PHOTOSTop left: Kinzie Brothers Steamer line. Top center: Ferry Catherine, Boca Grande to Placida. Top right: Smallwood store.

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. 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 NewsPress. 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. Loading oranges on the Caloosahatchee
20 MARCH 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES-BONITA SPRINGS FLORIDA WEEKLY BY NANCI THEORETSpecial to Florida WeeklyTheres a good reason some Southwest Florida islands are lesser known. Although they occasionally get ink from the national media, many are reachable only by boat; others by car only after plunging into nothingness to reach seemingly cant-get-there-from-here locations. Discover these islands and youll enjoy a little more elbow room on the beach, a friendly and relaxed lifestyle and nature untouched by man. Manasota KeyIt often surprises visitors, and some locals, to learn Charlotte County does indeed have beaches. This 11-mile long island starts in Englewood and stretches north into Sarasota County, where beaches are staffed with lifeguards and offer free parking. With Lemon Bay to the east and the Gulf to the west, the island boasts older cottages and oneand two-story inns holdouts from another era mixed with mid-rise condominiums, new Old Florida homes and grand estates hidden behind thick natural landscaping and mangroves in Sarasota County. Englewood Beach offers the only commercial businesses on the key, a handful of restaurants, boutiques and beach provision shops at the intersection of Beach Road (its access road from 776) and Gulfshore Boulevard. Its one of Floridas most undiscovered islands, with beaches along most of its span, including the ultra-secluded Stump Pass Beach State Park, offering a mile of undeveloped beachfront that becomes more secluded the farther south you walk toward the channel separating Manasota Key from Palm Island at its southernmost tip. The park encompasses two small islands to the east where boaters often congregate in flotillas during weekends in the Peterson Cut and calm waters are wellsuited for paddleboarding. Stump Pass Park also offers crushed-shell and sand hiking and nature trails through five distinct habitats and the opportunity to see manatees, gopher tortoises and other protected animals. Englewood Beachs business district contrasts the quiet of the park with a scaled-down version of Fort Myers Beach. The public beach here offers a privately operated beach spa, daily yoga and a Sunday sunset drum circle. Tiki bars and alfresco dining are practically a prerequisite for restaurants. Theres plenty of island music, island cocktails and island food. Palm IslandA residential and resort community of Old Florida homes, practically a stones throw from the mainland, Palm Island offers the ultimate in public beach seclusion. Because water is the only way to get here and its water taxi and car ferry cast off from marinas along the less-traveled Placida Road, few happen to find the island. The resort offers overnight accommodations, leisurely and active recreational pursuits and a restaurant that welcomes daytrippers with its signature Rum Bay Smash cocktail and full menu. Winding sandy paths meander around dunes of tall sea oats, revealing just snippets of its sugary-white beach and Gulf waters until the end of the path. Day visitors board the water taxi at Leverocks Restaurant, which also has a pool for resort guests. Those staying on the island will want to drive onto the ferry a block north. The taxi whisks guests to a dock and scenic boardwalk that lead to Palm Islands Rum Bay restaurant, a gift shop and ice cream shop. Weekend events include morning nature walks and beach yoga.Gasparilla IslandCheck the Facebook feed of recent Gasparilla Island visitors and youre bound to see similar snapshots showing turquoise water and snippets of land taken while crossing its three bridges. The nothingness of Gasparilla Road once it passes Rotonda West creates an inevitable giddiness of leaving civilization behind. The $6 toll deters many day visitors, and beaches during high season arent crowded. The islands northern tip, actually located in Charlotte County, offers rental condos and private residences and a small shopping center with a boutique hotel, tiki bar, restaurant and grocery store. There are no gas stations on Gasparilla, where golf carts often decorated are the preferred mode of transportation along the former railroad tracks, now an island-spanning walking and biking trail. Boca Grande proper, with its old railroad station offering a restaurant and boutiques in the heart of a small downtown, boasts a certain Nantucket-meetsFlorida vibe evident in the Vineyard Vines, Lilly Pulitzer and preppy attire of its fulland part-time residents. The century-old Gasparilla Inn hosts dignitaries, celebrities and former presidents who come here for privacy. Local newspapers snap their arrival and departure, leaving them alone throughout their visit.

The landmark offers a gift shop and museum documenting Gasparillas history as a port for phosphate ships and a strategic location during World War II. The wide beach overlooks the unswimmable Boca Grande Pass, celebrated for its tarpon fishing. Useppa IslandUseppa is about as exclusive as they come and an anomaly among Southwest Floridas islands. Accessible only by boat, this private island community is devoid of roads and beaches and allows the general public just two hours to lunch in its courtyard dining room and explore what they can, on foot, of the famed pink path and the Useppa Island Club. However, there is some wiggle room for visitors interested in real estate or friends of members who can stay in one of the Collier Inns seven suites or single-family cottages and homes, some of them dating back to the early 1900s.A resort destination for the wealthy since the late 19th century, lucky guests and homeowners enjoy a setting steeped in nature, where residents get around on golf carts and boats, gather for happy hour at the Tarpon Bar or a friends Old Florida-style home, don all white for croquet, and enjoy gourmet dishes in the Barron Collier Dining Room.

26 MARCH 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES-BONITA SPRINGS FLORIDA WEEKLY Ten tips to make boating with children safe, fun SEA TOW FOUNDATIONThe 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 http://www.seatow.com/boatingsafety/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. COURTESY PHOTOBoating enthusiasts set to lead Congressional boating caucus BOATUSThe Congressional Boating Caucus was formed in 1989 as an informal, bipartisan group of U.S. Senators and Representatives to advocate for the interests of the recreational boating industry. Recreational boaters have also benefitted from the caucus leadership on shared issues such as restoration of the Everglades, fisheries management reform, flood protection efforts, and projects that support waterway access. The Boat Owners Association of The United States joined with the National Marine Manufacturers Association welcomed the new co-chairs of the House of Representatives Recreational Boating Caucus, Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Florida) and Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-New Jersey). Rep. MacArthur is an active New Jersey shore boater and tourism advocate, while Rep. Frankel, a House Infrastructure and Transportation Committee member, hails from the No. 1 boating state in the nation and is a boating and angling enthusiast. This is exciting news for boaters, said BoatUS Government Affairs Senior Program Manager David Kennedy. Representatives MacArthur and Frankel will provide great leadership on issues that matter for those of us who love to spend time on the water. To enable boating to continue to be a $121 billion industry in this country, we need smart long-term sustainable policy on everything from the ethanol mandate to dredging. BEST HAPPY HOUR!

Sounds like you may have already narrowed down your choices to two choices that are among the fastest-growing segments in the entire boating industry: pontoons and deck boats. Since the very first aluminum pontoon was introduced in 1958 at the Chicago Worlds Fair (it was a Sanpan), boaters have been drawn to their unapologetically simple design, ease of use and the no-frills ability to get lots of folks aboard to get the party started. Back in those days, you broke out the folding lawn chairs, fired up the charcoal grill, and slowly putt -putted y our tiny outboard to the nearest cove of like-minded revelers. Similarly, the deck boat concept really started in 1974 when a company called Hurricane started building a fiberglass V-style hull to add better performance and handling, but still retain the a pontoon-style topside and wide-open floor plan that people loved so much about pontoons. It was so popular, in fact, that the first deck boat (called FunDeck) has been in constant production ever since. But my, how times have changed. These two boat types have come a long way and have been refined to the point that they really stack up against any other powerboat style. And today, they really go head-to-head when families are in the market for a new boat. Lets examine the pros and cons of each.StyleThis is perhaps the most subjective part of comparing pontoons and deck boats, and it all comes down to your personal tastes and what turns your head. Todays pontoons are tricked out with coordinated graphics, a choice of rail skin colors, high-quality vinyl seats, and tough and attractive marine-grade carpet. But since every inch of a pontoon is built for maximum seating and storage, some folks find them a little utilitarian. Todays deck boats are designed similarly to other fiberglass runabouts, but with the bow section carried as far forward as possible to accommodate more folks in the forward seating area. Youll see coordinated upholstery accents, bimini tops and carpet, and the exterior graphics tend to be a little bolder. Many deck boats also have integrated wake tower options, which adds a distinct watersports profile.HandlingWith a fiberglass, V-style hull, you typically would compare the handling of a deck boat to a similarly sized openbow boat. Look for a stable ride at all speeds, little or no bowrise, and superior turning at higher speeds. The option of outboard or I/O propulsion is a big plus for deck boats as well, depending on your needs. Even with a full load, pontoon boats (by design) are going to plane easily with less horsepower than a deck boat. Sharp turns are helped by the addition of hydraulic steering systems, but you will still cut a wider swath in a pontoon, unless you choose a performance model with triple (center) tube system, which provides extra buoyancy and stability.VersatilityBoth styles of boats truly shine when it comes to the ability to do a lot of different things on the water. Fishing, watersports, cruising, camping, entertaining, etc. are all right in the wheelhouse of pontoons and deck boats. In fact, depending on your familys needs, there are all sorts of different packages to dial in your preferred activities, such as rod holders, tackle storage and livewells for more hardcore anglers. If youre like most folks considering one of these boats, though, you will find that the basic features will serve you well, and allow you to fish in the morning, pull the kids on tubes in the afternoon and finish the day with a beautiful sunset cruise.Ease of operationIn the world of trailer boating, you really cant get much easier than pontoons and deck boats. With their stable platforms both are fairly easy to master when it comes to everything from launching and retrieving to cruising out on the water. Look for a raised helm or a captains seat that features a fold-up bolster to increase visibility. Pull-up cleats conveniently installed around the deck will make it a cinch to pull up and dock from any angle. Make sure youve got docking lights for bringing the boat in safely in the evening, and an all-off master switch to make sure you dont run down your battery when you leave the boat. COURTESY PHOTOS
