A2 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYThe AR-15 sports rifleIve never fired an M-4 or an AR-15 rifle the weapons of choice for United States Army and Marine Corps infantry units, or increasingly (in the case of the AR-15) for mass shootings by domestic terrorists. But Ill bet theyre a lot of fun. Maybe more fun than firing anti-tank weapons, shoulder-held anti-aircraft missiles, .50 cal. and 7.62 mm machine guns, M-16s (firing 5.56 mm rounds, like an AR-15 in .223), M-14s (7.62 mm, like a 30.06), and M79 grenade rifles firing 40 mm rounds. That last one in particular is a blast, a shotgun of sorts that will take down not just a goose, a duck, a pheasant or a quail, but a whole flock of geese along with a passing Piper Cub airplane or two and whatever hapless deer happen to be wandering the landscape below when they all come down in flames. And not just at 80 or 100 yards, but at almost 400 yards. Like I said, a blast. I cant for the life of me understand why more hunters arent using them, or why they arent part of every citizens home security arsenal, especially since theyre no longer standard-issue weaponry for infantry units, which have updated versions. So they could be recycled. Oh, I know; its the f---ing liberals, trying to take our guns away. Trying to prevent us from our constitutional right to keep and bear arms in case the government invades our neighborhoods, destroying our freedom to go to fast food restaurants, which are bad for our health. As a highly-paid professional opinionater, I draw the line right there: Im totally opposed to the government telling us we cant continue to be ignorant, overfed and unhealthy. You can pry my Big Mac from my cold dead well, never mind. The weapons Ive described all of which Ive fired, repeatedly, along with a couple of others would have been invented and constitutionally enshrined by James Madison, who authored the Second Amendment, if hed just thought of it. But he didnt because he wasnt farseeing enough to recognize we wouldnt always have to rely on powder and ball. Which makes him something of a dim bulb. Our forefathers were imperfect, yes, but we cant blame them for their failings. They had sex and used outhouses with no toilet paper and fired muskets and kept slaves and came up with the Constitution. What are you gonna do? Thank God we have the National Rifle Association to save us from their shortsighted ineptitude. The NRA used to be a bunch of harmless old pissants, teaching boys and the occasional girl with skinned-up knees how to clean their single-shot, bolt-action .22s after they fired a few rounds at tin cans or rabbits. Im not sure whether those old boys used toilet paper or not. Now, though, the NRA is a sleek, fit, ultra-modern, toilet-paper-hungry lobbying machine that stepped up to the plate well, theyve stepped up to the firing line. Employing both the First Amendment (to scare the crap out of the gullible) along with the classic Art of Lobbying Politicians in America (to woo the greedy), the NRA has rescued us from James Madison and those other wig-wearing rich guys. Not constitutionally, of course, but fear-atutionally. Terrorists might get us. The government might get us. A neighbor might get us. A spouse might get us. Only-a-goodguy-can-stop-a-bad-g uy-with-a-gun might get us. So now fortunately, and thanks to the NRA, we have a lot of AR-15s and a lot of copy-cat, mass-murdering, homemade terrorists running around shooting the countryside up with assault rifles designed for rapid semi-automatic fire that can be upgraded to automatic, put out rounds traveling at almost 3,000 feet per second, kill you at 50 feet or 500 yards, or more, and be modified to perform all kinds of other fancy tricks. Various models were banned for a decade, from 1994 to 2004, before President George W. Bush and Republicans in Congress let the ban expire. The NRA says a lot of people use them for sport. And now weve seen them employed effectively in many places, including just in the last year or so at an Orlando nightclub (49 killed, 58 wounded), a Las Vegas country music concert (58 killed, 546 wounded), and a Texas church (26 killed, 20 wounded). In the gun literature, the term of art for base model AR-15s made by companies such as Smith & Wesson, Armalite, Colt, and so on, is platform. The rifle is a platform you can custom-fit to your needs. Say, for example, you want to take out a whole herd of deer at night and maybe a bear or two on the side, while firing from the waist like Rambo. You can custom fit the laser sights, the high-capacity magazines, the bump stocks if you need to go full-auto (Rambo would have), and so on. Ammunition for these rifles isnt cheap, but its not a deal-breaker, either. For example, you can get a box of 500 .223 Remington Gold Dot rounds for $360, and prices vary from there. The rifles themselves run very roughly in the $800 to $1,200 range for the base platform, and they go up from there into the $2,500 range. So theres money in it. The NRA estimates more than 8 million Americans have AR-15s, and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced 3.7 million were sold in 2015. At an average price of $1,000, AR-15 rifles alone brought arms manufacturers $3.7 billion in 2015. If each buyer purchased $300 worth of ammunition in a year, thats another $1.1 billion. Throw in a few accessories like gun lockers and cleaning equipment and range fees and youre well up over $5 billion just for a 12-month period. I can draw only one conclusion from this: Those deer better look out. p t m i r a roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com M A T T E R momentsTheres no place like home on the holidays. matterbrothersfurniture.com Its that deep breath of contentment as you fluff that last pillow right before the doorbell rings and your guests arrive.

They had started achieving a less restricted, independent role where they could choose to make their mark in the professional world. The cigarette manufacturer celebrated this new glimmering of freedom by creating a Virginia Slims brand that was promoted for women with the slogan Youve come a long way, baby! The cynical message, of course, was that females were now liberated, so they could proudly inhale their own toxic fumes from their own cancer sticks. Almost a half-century later, they have continued to inch forward. Their progress, however, has been littered with ongoing discrimination obstacles. Even in this day and age, we have pay disparities, gross unfairness when it comes to hiring and promotion, and that lingering poison of sexual assault and harassment. With that one, women definitely have not come a long way, not just over 50 years, but from when we lived together in caves. We still have an opportunity to figure things out. By we I mean men, since the vast majority of offenses are from males directed at females 80 to 90 percent, depending on the source compiling the statistics. That is just the reported incidents. Perhaps when we look back we will thank movie mogul Harvey Weinstein for raising our consciousness a perverse gratitude, to say the least. The public charges of his sexual brutality over decades, allegedly assaulting women whose performing careers could be enhanced or destroyed by his powerful whim, have created an avalanche. It has buried not only him, but a growing list of other prominent men. They deserve, in my opinion, to be ostracized. Its that black and white. Discipline should be harsh going forward for various gross and demonstrably unwelcome propositions that women endure on the job from the horn-dog men who saturate the workplace. But now we get to that gray area, and the various shades of gray. Ill pause for a moment while everyone yuks it up about Shades of Grey. Are we done? Lets proceed: Also surfacing are lots of reports about the unintentional but ignorant forms of harassment frankly, stuff that I believe should not be considered harassment at all. Does an off-color remark of any kind qualify? Should we ban any sort of tactile behavior, such as touching someone on the arm in a purely nonsexual way? How do we define all that? That would be the shades of gray. Do we really want a place of employment that would make the Church Lady ecstatic? Are we to make the same mistake that academe has made, by overdoing protections against anything that might be considered politically incorrect. Safe places dont work on campuses, and they are unrealistic in the adult workplace. We can become safer, however and civilized and, might I add, productive. Obviously, we need to encourage prosecution yes, criminal prosecution of assault, and dismissal for those who act boorishly. Beyond that, we can candidly communicate with one another and agree on realistic guidelines. Only then will women and men really have come a long way. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Two very American heroes in TexasBefore the Texas church shooter encountered any police officers, he was run off a highway and dead. He had been shot and chased by two private citizens who took it upon themselves to respond to a heinous crime when no one with a badge was anywhere to be found. The church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, is another heartbreaking chapter in the countrys epidemic of mass shootings. Devin Patrick Kelley shot and killed 26 people and wounded another 20, accounting for nearly everyone in the small church. The senseless cruelty is hard to fathom. The response by the two bystanders who refused to stand by is something else entirely. It was a characteristically smalltown American act of self-reliance that shows, no matter how tattered our civil society may be, it still produces people who will risk life and limb for others without hesitation, unbidden by anything other than their own sense of obligation. When Stephen Willeford, 55, heard of the shooting, he left his house barefoot with his AR-15 and started exchanging fire with Kelley outside the church. An expert shot, Willeford hit Kelley and reportedly aimed for the gaps on his body armor. When Kelley got in an SUV and sped off, Willeford jumped in Johnnie Langendorffs truck and told him to give chase. Langendorff, 27, didnt ask any questions. He followed Kelley at 95 mph down the highway, until the perpetrator ran off the road. Willeford jump out of the truck and rested his rifle on top of Langendorffs hood and shouted for Kelley to get out. The murderer apparently took his own life with a gunshot. In his interviews, Langendo rff, with a scraggly beard and a tattoo of a bull skull on his neck, invariably wears a cowboy hat. He is polite and matter of fact (he said chase him and so thats what I did I just chased him), implying that anyone would have done it. This isnt true, although it is almost certainly more true in Americas outof-the-way places. Self-help is imperative in these areas because the alternative is no help, at least not on a timely basis. Small towns might not even have a police department. This gets to one of the root causes of Americas gun culture: In swaths of the country, a gun isnt an optional extra layer of self-protection, but a necessary first defense. Rates of gun ownership are highest in remote, sparsely populated states like Alaska, Idaho, West Virginia and North Dakota. In a poll of Texans a few years ago, nearly half of the people said they or a family member owned a gun. Any gun-control measure that is sweeping enough to make a dent in the countrys gun stock and render gun ownership difficult enough to, at the margins, keep firearms out of the hands of psychopaths will inevitably affect law-abiding people as well. In places like rural Texas, that would rightly be considered a serious imposition. Without a gun, if something goes wrong, the only option is sitting and waiting for the authorities to show up. And the likes of Stephen Willeford and Johnnie Langendorff, obviously, arent the waiting kind.

IDS. 239-778-4243 GUEST OPINIONDont expect much help for Floridas waterways BY DAVE TRECKEROur lawmakers would have us believe there are better days ahead for the environment. We are told big money is about to be unleashed to control pollution in and around Lake Okeechobee, rebuild our beaches, restore the Everglades and buy more conservation land. Something for everybody. Gov. Rick Scotts 2018-19 budget has $1.7 billion earmarked for state conservation projects. Thats up from $1.4 billion this year. And President Donald Trump has pledged federal money to help shore up the Herbert Hoover Dyke around Lake Okeechobee. But dont get too excited. Not much is going to happen. Why? Federal promises have no credibility. The feds are already $1 billion behind on promised funding. And there will be lots of competition for state money next year. Sen. Kathleen Passidomo (R-Naples) says the state will advance about $665 million for Irma-related repairs. And there will be increases in health care to cover a spike in Medicaid costs. And a continuing push to upgrade our lagging public schools and universities. And more incentives to spur business growth. Whats left for conservation will go in many different directions. Its like scattering money from an airplane. No single expenditure will make much of a difference. Lets look at the impact on water pollution, a worsening problem in south Florida. Due largely due to fertilizer runoff, pollution promotes algae blooms that choke waterways and kill fish and other marine life. The problem is particularly bad around Lake Okeechobee, a receptacle for runoff from the Kissimmee River to the north and farming areas to the south and west. To prevent a breach in the surrounding dyke, the lake water must be periodically lowered, sending the pollution west into the Caloosahatchee River and the gulf and east into the St. Lucie Canal and the Atlantic. Beaches are fouled. Fishing is impacted. Tourists go elsewhere. Gov. Scott says the answer is to speed up repair of the Herbert Hoover Dyke. Since 2001, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has spent more than $870 million on the ancient earthen dam. The corps says another $930 million is needed. The governor included $50 million in this years budget, and Trump agreed to chip in an additional $82 million. At this rate, the job wont be completed until 2025. And thats assuming all of the funds are delivered. There are other approaches. Environmentalists have been pressing for reservoirs to be built on all sides of Lake O, most particularly to the south to control discharges to the Everglades. And earlier this year, the legislature actually delivered something. Senate Bill 10 calls for building a small reservoir on state-owned land to go with an existing nearby reservoir. Together the two would provide 360,000 acre-feet of storage capacity. Unfortunately, that would handle only a fraction of the 2.3-million acre-feet the lake discharged in 2016. And at a cost of $1.5 billion, half from uncommitted federal funds, the new reservoir wont be ready for at least five years. A reservoir to the north is another possibility, a place to store the Kissimmee water before it reaches the lake. The Army Corps is waiting for a report that will spell out options. Funding hasnt been discussed, and reservoir construction is years away. Storage to the east and west is also being considered, and Gov. Scotts budget has $105 million for a reservoir to capture runoff before it reaches the Caloosahatchee. But matching federal funds are needed, so dont hold your breath. There are other problems. None of these projects have any provisions for cleaning up the polluted water, just for containing it. There are plans for regulating the flow but not for removing the pollutants. Costly filter marshes or the equivalent are needed downstream of the reservoirs. And theres more. Virtually nothing has been done to deal with leaky septic tanks, a problem in rural areas and another major cause of pollution. Thats slipped below the radar altogether. Finally, the easiest fix of all has been ignored: toughening statewide water standards for nutrients. The Department of Environmental Protection could do that immediately and at little cost. Put the onus on the polluters to stop runoff pollution. Set tough specs for soluble nitrogen and phosphorus in our waterways and enforce the standards, particularly in the sugar cane fields, phosphate-mines, vegetable farms and other areas where the worst pollution occurs. This is a no-brainer. But business interests oppose it and it probably wont happen. Put it all together and its pretty discouraging. The fact is there wont be meaningful cleanup of Floridas waterways until our elected officials treat it as an imperative, a top priority that must be fully funded. Money off the top, not money thats left over. Elections are coming. We as voters will have a chance to deliver that message.

A10 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYWalk of shameA presumably humiliated opossum ran off in late October after three Pennsylv ania men posted photos on social media of themselves giving it beer and kissing it. The Pennsylv ania State Game Commission was unamused by the antics of Michael Robert Tice, 18, of Newport; David Mason Snook, 19, of Reedsville; and Morgan Scot Ehrenzeller, 20, of McAlisterville, and charged them on Nov. 2 with unlawful possession of wildlife and disturbing wildlife. According to TribLive, Tice kissed and held the animal while Snook poured beer on its head and into its mouth. The men couldnt be reached for comment.Be kind to animals Donna Byrne, 53, of Polk County, was charged with driving under the influence on Nov. 2, but it was her mode of transportation that earned her an animal neglect charge. Byrne was riding her horse, Boduke, down a busy road in Lakeland in the middle of the afternoon. When officers reached Byrne, she was staggering and had red, watery eyes explained by her breath alcohol level, which was more than twice the legal limit, Polk County Sheriffs Office spokesman Brian Bruchey told the Orlando Sentinel. Boduke got a ride to the sheriffs Animal Control livestock facility, but Bruchey said hed most likely be returned to Byrne, whose rap sheet includes cruelty to animals and drug possession. In Darmstadt, Germany, police detained a 19-year-old man on Nov. 7 after they noticed a significant bulge in his trousers and discovered he was carrying a baby python in his pants. The unnamed man was carrying on a loud, drunken argument with another man when police were called, reported The Guardian. Officers took the man and the snake to the police station, where the snake was put in a box, and authorities considered whether the non-speciesappropriate transport could be a violation of animal protection laws.Nakedly weirdA family of three were taken from their home and forced into a car on Nov. 7 in Leduc County, Alberta, Canada, by five naked people. The man, who was placed in the trunk, quickly escaped, and his wife and baby also managed to get away, according to The Canadian Press. A passing truck driver picked up the three victims, but then the naked kidnappers car rammed his truck from behind, sending it into a ditch. Royal Canadian Mounted Police caught up with the criminals; of the five, two were minors and were not charged. The adults faced charges of kidnapping and resisting arrest. The RCMP gave no explanation for why the five kidnappers were naked, but posited that drugs or alcohol may have been involved.Smooth reactionsTempers flared in Minot, N.D., before 33-year-old Cornelius Marcel Young was charged with terrorizing after attacking his fiances brother at a trailer park on Nov. 3. The Minot Daily News reported that Young yelled at the brother, punched him in the face and knocked him into a wall after he had turned up the thermostat in the trailer, according to a Minot Municipal Court affidavit. When the brother threatened to call police, Young brandished a knife, as his fiance jumped on his back and bit his ear to distract him. Two children were in the trailer during the fight but were uninjured.Ow ow owA Chicago wiener stand was the scene of a crime gone south on Oct. 31 when Terrion Pouncy, 19, accidentally discharged his gun, which he was trying to conceal in his pants, and shot himself in a most sensitive location. The Chicago Tribune reported police were called to the Original Maxwell Street Polish at about 6 a.m., after a hooded man threatened employees with a small-caliber pistol. One of the employees gave him money from the cash register, according to the complaint against Pouncy, after which the robber stole the mans cellphone and wallet, and ran outside, stuffing the gun in his pants, but it went off twice, striking his groin and thigh. Pouncy kept running and eventually called 911 to report that hed been shot. He was charged with two counts of armed robbery with a firearm, but couldnt appear for his bond hearing, as he was recovering at a local hospital.Compelling explanationThe Stardust Ranch in Rainbow Valley, Ariz., has a lot to offer potential buyers: Just an hour west of Phoenix, the property boasts a 3,500-square-foot home with a pool, 10 acres, barns, a gated entry ... and two portals to another dimension: one at the back of the property, and one in the fireplace. Owner John Edmonds and his wife bought the property, now listed at $5 million, 20 years ago to run a horse rescue, but he says hes killed more than a dozen extraterrestrials on the property (using a samurai sword) and has suffered many injuries in his encounters with them. Edmonds told KPNX TV in October that aliens tried to abduct his wife: They actually levitated her out of the bed in the master chamber and carried her into the parking lot and tried to draw her up into the craft. (She wont enter the room anymore.) Listing agent Kimberly Gero notes: This isnt the type of property that you can just place in the MLS and wait for a buyer to come along.Unusual hobbiesKung fu master Li Weijun used his bare hands to smash 302 walnuts in 55 seconds on Nov. 1, breaking a Guinness World Record. The previous record, held by a man in India, was 212 walnuts in one minute, according to United Press International.

Businesses and individuals with physical damages caused by Hurricane Irma have until Friday, Nov. 24, to apply for an SBA low-interest disaster loan. As of press time earlier this week, SBA officials reported 8,474 disaster loans had already been approved in the amount of $308,838,300 in the Sunshine State. The SBA encourages anyone who has not applied to take action right away. Our mission is to help businesses and residents rebuild and resume their normal lives as quickly as possible, said Frank Skaggs, director of SBAs Field Operations Center East in Atlanta. The need for SBA disaster loans is as unpredictable as the weather. In fiscal year 2016, the administration approved more than 25,235 new loans for more than $1.4 billion; since the programs inception in 1953, more than 2 million loans have been approved for a total of more than $56 billion in the wake of hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfire, tornadoes and other physical disasters. The Hurricane Irma-related disaster declaration covers 48 counties and includes Collier, Lee and Charlotte in Southwest Florida. All are eligible for both physical and economic injury disaster loans. SBA disaster loans are available to businesses of all sizes, most private nonprofit organizations, homeowners and renters to cover uninsured losses from the disaster. Interest rates are as low as 3.305 percent for businesses, 2.5 percent for private nonprofit organizations and 1.75 percent for homeowners and renters. Loan terms can be up to 30 years. Economic injury disaster loans are available to provide disaster-related working capital to small businesses and most private nonprofit organizations. These loans can be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that could have been paid had the disaster not occurred. The filing deadline for economic injury disaster loans is June 11, 2018. To be considered for all forms of disaster assistance, applicants should register online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or download the FEMA mobile app. If online or mobile access is unavailable, applicants should call the FEMA toll-free helpline at 800-6213362.

Farm City BBQ of Collier returns for 62nd editionIn an effort to help Southwest Florida residents rebuild and replant after Hurricane Irma, Keep Collier Beautiful (KCB) and the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) have partnered with Farm City BBQ of Collier County to give away 3,000 trees at this years event. The 62nd Annual Farm City BBQ, held at Cambier Park in downtown Naples on Wednesday, Nov. 22, from 11:30 a.m. 2:30 p.m., is expected to bring thousands of business and agricultural leaders together in support of the next generation of local leaders. Proceeds from the event benefit the 4H Association, Youth Leadership Collier, Junior Deputies and Kiwanis Key Clubs. Read more about the afternoon on page C39. In past years, Keep Collier Beautiful has given away the trees each year at the University of Florida iFAS Extension office as part of the annual Southwest Florida Yard and Garden show. Damages from the hurricane have forced cancellation of this years show, so BBQ organizers have agreed to host the tree giveaway at their upcoming annual event. Farm City BBQ attendees can choose from 3,000 Florida native trees to help restore the vital environmental ecosystem that we cherish. One thousand Southern Red Cedar, Live Oak and Slash Pine trees of each variety will be available for giveaway to replace area trees lost from the storm. Earlier this year, Collier County was officially certified as a Community Wildlife Habitat by NWF. Collier County is the 96th community in the country to receive this honor and is currently the sixth largest community habitat in the state of Florida. The trees were generously donated to the residents of Collier County through the National Wildlife Federations Trees for Wildlife program, which is dedicated to educating youth and communities about trees and their importance to our environment, as well as inspiring communities to plant and care for trees.

Know the signsNot everyone who has an eating disorder is dangerously overor underweight NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHHow do you feel after you eat? Satisfied? Too full? Or maybe even guilty? Being too focused on food can sometimes turn into an eating disorder. People with eating disorders have severe, persistent and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors about food. As a result, they might eat way too little or way too much. Eating disorders are not a lifestyle choice. They are serious illnesses that affect your bodys ability to get proper nutrition. This can lead to health issues, including heart and kidney problems or even death. The three most widely recognized eating disorders are binge-eating disorder, bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa. Binge-eating disorder is the most common eating disorder in the United States. Binge-eating is not just a lot of overeating, explains Dr. Cynthia Bulik, an expert on eating disorders at the University of North CarolinaChapel Hill. Theres this sense of loss of control. You start eating, and you feel like you just cant stop. People with binge-eating disorder eat well beyond being full. They often eat until they feel very uncomfortable. Afterward, theyre usually overcome by feelings of guilt, shame and distress. They are often obese. When binge eating is followed by purging, its called bulimia nervosa. People with bulimia nervosa might follow binge eating by vomiting or taking laxatives to purge, by fasting or by over-exercising. Theyre often able to maintain a normal weight because their purging compensates for the extra calories, but bulimia nervosa can cause other health issues, like heart irregularities or problems with the digestive system. On the other extreme, people with anorexia nervosa eat very little. They see themselves as overweight, even when they are dangerously underweight. Its the least common of the three eating disorders, but is often the most deadly. An eating disorder can develop for anyone, at any body weight or shape and at any time. But most eating disorders start in the teen or young adult years. When young people show signs of an eating disorder, there is this tendency to think that they might outgrow it or that its just a phase, Dr. Bulik says. But the most likely path is in the direction of developing a full-blown eating disorder. What causes eating disorders isnt known. Genes and family history, mental and emotional health, as well as environment and culture can all influence whether someone develops one of these complex conditions. Some NIH-funded researchers are studying possible genetic causes for eating disorders. Others are looking for changes in the brain. They hope their studies will help guide how eating disorders are diagnosed and treated. Because many people with eating disorders might not think they need treatment, family members and friends can be very helpful. Express concern. Say youre there to listen. If youre concerned that you or a family member might have an eating disorder, the key is really to see a health professional with expertise in eating disorders for an evaluation, Dr. Bulik says. Treatment plans tailored to individual needs can include talk therapy, nutritional counseling and medications. Unhealthy eating habitsYou cant tell by someones size if they have an eating disorder. But you can look for certain signs: >> Skipping meals. >> Making excuses for not eating. >> Eating in secret or separately. >> Persistent worrying or talking about healthy eating, exercise, being overweight or losing weight. >> Eating much more food in a meal or snack than whats considered normal. >> Eating large amounts of sweets or high-fat foods. >> Leaving during meals to use the toilet. >> Expressing depression, disgust, shame, or guilt about eating habits. >> Frequently checking the mirror for perceived aws.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 A21 New FGCU program focuses on careers in senior living industryAs baby boomers retire and growing numbers move into senior living facilities, the need for trained staff will increase exponentially. In anticipation of that need, the Office of Continuing Education & Off-Campus Programs at Florida Gulf Coast University offers the Senior Living Leadership Certificate, a new program that prepares learners for careers in this growing industry. Certification includes a blend of gerontology fundamentals classes taught by health-care professionals and FGCU faculty; leadership and professional development classes taught by senior living industry executive leaders and regional/national subject matter experts; and classes about senior living operations taught by facility practitioners. The program begins Feb. 24, 2018, at FGCU and will meet from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for 33 Saturdays over 10 months. (As an alternative, registered students can view the class from anywhere via the internet.) In addition to the classes, participants complete a one-week externship at a senior living facility or do an approved independent study to earn the noncredit-bearing certificate. Those who wish to take individual classes are welcome to do that as well. The cost for the complete certificate is $2,999; individual classes are $109 each. The Senior Living Leadership Certificate is designed for students with at least two years of college or equivalent appropriate experience. The program provides senior living career-seekers the comprehensive foundation needed to work in a senior living environment, and affords those already working in the industry an opportunity to enhance their skills and productivity. The industry anticipates a shortfall of qualified workers in a field where starting salaries for professional, administrative and executive personnel range from $50,000 to more than $65,000, and with experienced leaders commanding upwards of $200,000. A complete list of the classes and program instructors can be found here at fgcu.edu/leadershipcertificate.

Hes not a sightseer at least not in the usual way. Train detects the scat, or feces, of jaguar, puma, ocelot, oncilla and bush dog. What he finds helps Washington University researchers analyze the paths the animals travel. This allows them to plan habitat corridors that protect the ability of wildlife to travel through territory while limiting their impact on surrounding environments, which include public and private wildlife reserves, privately owned plantations and farms, and roads and pathways.Conservation dogs like Train hold jobs around the world. Besides sniffing for scat, they seek out turtle nests that need protection, detect pests that attack plants and monitor the presence of invasive fish species in streams and other waterways. The dogs are employed by wildlife researchers; local, state, and national agencies; and international organizations where they help to track poachers by finding the scent of ammunition or contraband such as rhino horn. You may also see them at work in airports, where they hunt for smuggled products or animals such as bear bile and gallbladders, snakes and even baby monkeys.At Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) in Namibia, a border collie named Finn and a Malinois/German shepherd cross named Levi search for cheetah scat. What they find is analyzed in CCFs genetics laboratory. We can do DNA and understand more about population structure and find out what the cheetah has eaten, so we have prey analysis that we can use as well, says Laurie Marker, Ph.D., CCFs founder and executive director. Finn has been on the job for approximately eight years and is still active at 10 years old. Levi is his younger understudy, capable of covering more ground. They work off leash in the bush, accompanied by a handler who rewards them with a toss of a ball or toy when they give an alert. They wear tracking collars in case they range out of sight. Despite facing risks such as leopards and baboons, Dr. Marker says theyve had only one injury. An English springer spaniel named Tiger, now retired, broke a leg from falling in a hole. The traits that make a good conservation dog are not what most people look for in a companion, so its no surprise that many dogs who excel in these careers were pulled from animal shelters, Train among them. The then-2-year-old dog was selected for his high energy level and ball-driven spirit, says his handler, Karen DeMatteo, a biology research scientist at Washington University in St. Louis. Dogs suited to these types of jobs cant simply focus on a ball or toy, though. They must also be willing to pay attention to the handler and have the stamina and drive to work for long periods without getting bored. They work for play, Dr. Marker says. The dogs are capable of learning to identify multiple scents, making them valuable in a number of situations. In addition to identifying cheetah scat, Levi trained in South Africa knows rhino horn and ammunition and is being trained on leopard. Together, the scents give him a wellrounded skill set. In addition to his work in Argentina, where his repertoire odors include tapir, white-lipped peccary, collared peccary and paca, Train has helped with mountain lion surveys for Nebraska Game and Parks and the Missouri Department of Conservation. DeMatteo is planning to expand his repertoire to include spotted skunk to help find this endangered species in Missouri, where she and Train live. Even at 10 years old, he shows no sign of wanting to slow down, she says. Pets of the Week>> Guy is a 10-year-old Domestic Shorthair mix that is very friendly and sweet.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 NEWS A23 Vampires should not be forced to change their body clocksFor the past two weeks, Ive been conducting an elaborate science experiment on my body and my brain and Ive found that as a subject, science, much like math, doesnt appear to be my forte. Im attempting to answer the age-old question can you teach a not-so-new (I refuse to use the word old) dog new tricks? Basically, Ive been trying to reset my body clock which at this point is like trying to set the leaning Tower of Pisa upright, or changing the ending of The Titanic so that Jack actually fits on that floating door with Rose, or attempting to change a Fox News viewers mind about Donald Trump on a Facebook thread some things are just not possible. Still, Im trying. After an entire life of being a dedicated night owl, Im doing everything in my power to become an early bird. After all, the early bird gets the worm; Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise (hopefully, that applies to women as well); The key to success is getting up early. I dont know if all thats true in fact, I know a few early-risers who arent particularly wise, successful or healthy but, still, I want to see if resetting my body clock will make a difference in getting a better nights sleep, exercising more and having better clarity. Two of my friends motivated me. They want me to join them on early morning walks at 6 a.m. which means I have to be bright-eyed and bushytailed by 5:30 in the morning. And quite frankly, unless Im scheduled for surgery or I need to catch a plane, my bodys algorithms struggle with rising when its still pitch black outside. I was daunted about being able to change my vampire-like ways when I read a study conducted by the genetics company 23andMe that stated that whether youre a night owl or an early bird can be genetic and that I might not be able to change my sleeping habits any more than I can change my height from my dwarf-like 5 feet 2 inch size to a more willowy 5 feet 10 inches. I looked back at my mothers side of the family. My Grandma Ya Ya was an artist who painted her most vivid abstracts late at night. I remember staying with her when I was little, waking up in the middle of the night, and finding her in her studio in her nightgown, a cup of hot coffee steaming on the table next to her, a cigarette between her lips and a paintbrush in her hand as she covered the canvas in bright acrylics. Whenever my father got up early and took me to church on Sunday mornings, my mother would pull the covers up over her head and mumble drowsily, If anyone wonders where I am, tell them that I worship at a chapel called Saint Mattress. Mom was always a night owl she loved to write and wrote by hand in her journal after everyone else had gone to bed. I remember her telling me, I can think better when the rest of the house is sleeping. For me, it doesnt matter how early I wake up, how hard I exercise in the morning or work during the day, or even stress out about the dishwasher breaking, paying the bills or forgetting to make my annual mammogram appointment I come alive at 11 at night. Thats when I suddenly feel creative, energized and inspired. I want to rearrange my closet, write a short story, binge watch Stranger Things, pluck my eyebrows and Skype with my friend who lives in Taiwan. So, Ive been trying to trick my body and brain by going to bed at 9 p.m. I take my trusty ZzzQuil and melatonin supplement along with some hot Sleepy Time Tea and indeed, I fall asleep until about 1:30 when my eyes pop open and my mind starts racing. Knowing that my alarm is going off in a mere four hours does not seem to help my case. Its been a challenge and even though Im achy and bleary-eyed, Im determined to rise early, get that worm, and be healthy, wealthy and wise. But, I cant help but wonder whats so great about worms anyway? stephanieDAVIS sdavis@floridaweekly.com Millennium Physician Group Welcomes Charles Anderson, M.D.HAVE YOU HEARD?

In Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties, the effect of 111 to 130 mph winds, and extensive flooding and power outages, SEE BRIDGING, A27 LJohn Greene pushes Harley-Davidson brand forward with value-based leadershipDid you know roughly 3 percent of the population ride motorcycles? Contending with that other 95 to 97 percent, along with the many preconceived notions of riders and the industry, is one of the biggest challenges faced every day by John Greene, chief branding officer for Naples Harley-Davidson and Six Bends Harley-Davidson. The Naples location was recently honored as a business of the month by the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Collier County Commissioners. Mr. Greene was on hand to accept the award on behalf of his team and co-owner of the dealership, Scott Fischer. They also co-own the Six Bends location in Fort Myers and several dealerships in New Mexico. These are want products, certainly not a need, Mr. Greene said of his companys motorcycles. Some consider it a luxury there is also a component of safety that bothers some people. The Naples Chamber recognizes a business each month that has enhanced the community through financial, volunteer and active involvement in organizations and programs that assist in creating a better quality of life for all citizens in Collier County. So how does a dealership known for selling the most iconic two-wheeled vehicle in the industry become so well respected in the community? It starts with the litany of initiatives Naples Harley-Davidson employs to promote rider education, according to Mr. Greene, as well as monthly bike nights that get people to come out in the name of charity. At the beginning of the year, the staff said they wanted to add a charitable component (to our bike nights), he said. So every month theres a different charity or individual that benefits. Thats what got the chamber thinking about us. They saw were a business that gives back to the community. Naples Harley-Davidson has supported a local Blessings in a Backpack program and consulted and raised funds for Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida, among other local initiatives through their monthly Bike Nights. Despite the obvious national brand name, Mr. Greene says he and Mr. Fischer like to keep their charitable efforts local whenever possible. The Collier commissioners were there recognizing employees for decades of service among other commendations, so it was cool to get that (recognition), he said. The Naples Harley-Davidson has been a fixture in the community for over a decade, sporting a 27,000-squarefoot store just off Pine Ridge Road. Mr. Greene said he and his staff are mindful Some businesses were hammered by Irma, others fared OK. Bridge loans are helping.

Valiantly Hanging On to ValeantMy dumbest investment was buying shares of Valeant Pharmaceuticals or, rather, holding on to them through the stocks collapse. I am now trying to use options to make back some of the loss. C., onlineThe Fool Responds: Many people buy stocks that seem promising but then end up cratering. When a stock falls, its valuable to investigate why its falling: If theres a temporary issue, such as a fire at a factory that will delay shipments of a new product, its often best to just be patient. But if there are deeper and potentially longer-lasting problems, such as a major scandal, spiraling debt or a competitor running away with market share, selling may be the best response. Valeants shares traded for less than $10 apiece in 2008, only to pass $250 in 2015 before plunging again. They recently sold for less than $12. What happened? Well, the company was slammed with allegations of improper behavior and faced intense criticism over its steep drug prices. Its debt soared to more than $30 billion, too. At recent levels, some feel its fairly priced now and that its future is potentially bright, due to lots of new products.If you agree, it can make sense to keep hanging on. Otherwise, move your money into one or more stocks in which you have more confidence. Dont try to recoup your losses in a stock in which youve lost faith. This Stock Is Going PlacesThe stock price of The Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN) recently topped $1,900, but dont let that scare you. The stock has surged some twentyfold over the past decade, but its likely to keep growing and you can always buy just one or two shares. Priceline has become the leader in the online travel industry through its unique combination of pricing power and global coverage. Offering hotels, rental cars, airline tickets and more, Priceline aims to be a onestop shop for all of its users travel needs. It has made smart acquisitions, with its 2005 purchase of Booking.com having been a prescient move that dramatically increased the international scope of its hotel network. Competitors have attempted to mimic Pricelines success, but none has managed to match the company. The online leader has also done a good job of fighting against the rise of new up-and-coming travel options such as Airbnb, listing private home rentals and similar properties alongside traditional hotel options in order to give its users as many choices as possible. Pricelines premier brands include Kayak, Agoda, OpenTable and Rentalcars. com. It now generates more than 80 percent of its revenue from outside the U.S., in large part due to the strength of Booking.com. With its demonstrated ability to adapt to changing conditions, Priceline is likely to serve your portfolio well for many years. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Priceline.) I trace my roots back to the 1911 merger of a tabulating machine company, a meat slicer and scale manufacturer, and an industrial clockmaker. Ive been a progressive employer, paying my workers by the hour when others paid by the piece, and in 1958 making them all salaried. My punched cards once dominated data processing, and my Selectric typewriters dominated offices. Today Im a tech titan employing more than 400,000 people globally and offering services such as cognitive computing technology, cloud platforms, big data processing and financial services. I rake in close to $80 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: IBM) Stocks vs. FundsQI have mostly individual stocks in my IRA account. Is that reasonable, or should I stick with mutual funds instead? T.N., Elyria, OhioAIt depends. Mutual funds offer convenience and instant diversification. They can also expose you to industries or regions you dont know very well, such as the international arena. (If you invest in mutual funds, favor those with low fees and talented managers, or just stick with low-fee index funds such as one that tracks the S&P 500.) Carefully selected individual stocks, meanwhile, can deliver bigger returns than most mutual funds can, but thats far from guaranteed. Plenty of stocks dont perform well.For maximum simplicity and market-tracking performance, just use inexpensive broad-market index funds. If you want to try to top that performance, you might park a portion of your portfolio in some carefully selected managed mutual funds and/or individual stocks. Healthy and growing dividend-paying companies can be powerful contributors to a portfolio, and dynamic small-cap companies can come through for you, too.You can learn more about investing in stocks and funds at fool.com and morningstar.com. ***QI own a bunch of dividend-paying stocks, with dividend yields ranging from around 3 percent to nearly 10 percent. The underlying companies all seem to be in good shape, so should I move all the money into the higher-yielding stocks? P.G., Naples, FloridaALook beyond yields and focus your money on the most promising investments you see. A company with a stock yielding 7 percent might be growing very slowly, w hile another, with a 3 percent yield, might be growing more rapidly and significantly boosting its dividend each year. After some years, the second company might be giving you bigger payouts. Want more information about stocks?

A26 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? Development of autonomous vehicles. The U.S. car rental industry may very well be one of the early adopters of autonomous vehicles. Many drivers experience new automotive technologies for the first time in rental vehicles at Enterprise, we call them extended test drives. Enterprise Holdings fleet of virtual cars is well positioned to quickly and efficiently introduce millions of consumers to new fuel and vehicle technology, especially as transportation infrastructure and alternatives, including autonomous vehicles, evolve in the future. As a result, in late 2016, Enterprise Holdings submitted comments on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations Federal Automated Vehicles Policy. Among other things, Enterprise Holdings urged NHTSA to recognize the rental industry and fleet management operators as key stakeholders in the development of state and federal policies. As TheInformation.com news site reported in early 2017: Enterprise, a 60-year-old company that owns and rents more cars in the U.S. than anyone else, is gaining newfound attention in Silicon Valley and Detroit, judging by conversations with tech executives lately. The reason is simple: Enterprise is one of the few companies that can manage large fleets of cars at scale. Thats a skill likely to be in demand as more companies launch ride-sharing services using self-driving cars.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?Our adherence to a set of guiding principles established by our founder, Jack Taylor, when he started the business with a fleet of seven cars in the basement of a St. Louis Cadillac dealership in 1957. These founding values have served as the foundation for our growth and success for nearly six decades. As a privately held company, we are in a unique position to make decisions for the long term. Our philosophy is that business is a marathon, not a 100-yard dash. We approach new opportunities conservatively, always placing a higher value on the longterm impact on our business than on the potential for short-term gain. As the leading employer of college graduates, each year Enterprise hires thousands of smart, motivated men and women into our Management Training Program. This program teaches employees how to run a business and serves as our pipeline for future leadership. This promote-fromwithin culture is a driving force behind our success and our need to hire so many college-educated individuals each year. In fact, nearly all of the companys current senior management started their careers as management trainees.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?Enterprise Holdings heritage is unique: We pioneered and developed significant market demand for convenient, affordable car rentals away from the airport right in the neighborhoods where customers live and work. That market segment then evolved into an insurance replacement business for consumers whose vehicles were in need of repair and, under the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand, grew into a robust neighborhood business that currently rivals the airport market. The acquisition of the Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental brands in 2007, as part of one of the largest acquisitions in car rental industry history, nearly tripled our companys airport U.S. market share overnight and enabled us to begin offering a diverse portfolio of brands to serve the unique needs of leisure and business travelers. Today, Enterprise Holdings three car rental brands consistently rank above the industry average for customer satisfaction at North American airports, and weve also taken the lead in market share at U.S. airports. We also continue to expand globally and establish our customer-service values at a growing number of airport locations worldwide. Enterprise Holdings diverse network now offers a total transportation solution at that includes extensive car rental services, as well as car sharing, truck rental, corporate fleet management and retail car sales.Whats your superpower? Our uncompromising commitment to customer satisfaction. That is the principle that has guided our company along our journey since the beginning, and it remains our goal today. Since 1957, we have focused on providing customers with a level of service that keeps them coming back to our flagship Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand as well as to our National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands.How are you growing and developing your employee skills?Enterprise Holdings network of independent regional subsidiaries has earned a reputation as a great place to work, offering an attractive mix of hands-on training; opportunity to advance; and a strong, values-based culture. The Enterprise Management Training Program helps new employees learn and advance their careers in a highly respected management development program. And their promote-from-within culture means significant opportunity for personal growth, professional advancement and performance-based compensation. Some of the best training in any industry is offered, teaching employees the skills needed to run a business and prepare for long-term success, including a thorough grounding in highly respected service standards for Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car customers. And employees are provided a chance to advance their careers at a faster pace than many other entry-level management employers.How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? Through a national recruiting strategy that is executed at the local level, Enterprise Holdings network of 200 talent acquisition specialists work diligently to communicate the companys culture of opportunity to job candidates. Enterprise Holdings recruiters remain active on campus, attending career fairs, facilitating seminars, coordinating mock interviews and working with student organizations. To find qualified candidates for our management training program, Enterprise also uses several online career resources such as job boards (CareerBuilder, Monster), job aggregators (Indeed, Simply Hired) and social media in addition to posting jobs on the Enterprise Holdings careers website, go.enterpriseholdings.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 BUSINESS A27 left many businesses closed for six to 10 days, or longer. But others, especially in Lee Countys Island Park and Alico Road areas, and the southern portion of Collier are still struggling to find a path forward. At the opposite end of the spectrum was Palm Beach County, which avoided a direct hit and the storms full wrath when Irmas cone shifted to the west. Damage there was minimal, said Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of public-private Business Development Board of Palm Beach County. We were prepared for something that we thought would be extremely devastating ,and I think that we fared extremely well, said Ms. Smallridge. Cumulative data on economic damage in Lee, Collier and Charlotte was not available. However, Suzanne Specht, of the Florida Small Business Development Center at Florida Gulf Coast University, pointed to interest in Floridas Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program as a barometer. Bridge Loans provide interest-free, 90-or-180-day loans to businesses with two to 100 employees that experience disaster-related property or economic damage. After Irma, the state allocated $10 million for the program, which has a $50,000 maximum per application. The loans are intended to bridge the gap between when the damage occurred and when other funding can be secured, such as insurance payments or low-interest Federal Small Business Administration disaster loans, which have a longer-term and a $2 million maximum. We were incredibly busy after the storm, said Ms. Specht, assistant director for the SBDC, which also includes Glades County and facilitates the Bridge Loan Program in its coverage area. Ive never, ever seen it so busy. The hurricane impacted everyone. It was just unbelievable. Some businesses totally need this program to survive. She said that as of Nov. 6, at least 130 small businesses from the four-county coverage area had received Bridge Loans. And many more are in the pipeline, Ms. Specht added. Thats a little over $4.6 million for businesses in our Southwest Florida area. Mike Duncan of Marco Island, in Collier County, is one of the recipients. Duncan owned the Marker 8.5, a seafood restaurant in nearby Goodland, a rustic fishing village located in southern Collier County, for four and half years. His ownership stint ended with Irmas arrival and the four feet of wind-driven storm surge that washed out the small, waterfront eaterys porch dining area and bar. Mr. Duncan said the building has been condemned and the structures owner intends to rebuild and open a restaurant there, rather than renew his lease, which had six months remaining. So Mr. Duncan, a trained and experienced chef, is now searching for a new location. He has received a $50,000 Bridge Loan that he intends to put toward opening a new restaurant, preferably in the Naples area, but failing that, elsewhere in Southwest Florida. They basically saved me, Mr. Duncan said of the SBDC and the Bridge Loan program. I cant put it any other way. God Bless is all I can say. He said he felt as if hed been sucker punched, knocked out after seeing the damage, but with the low-interest loan, some private financing and his culinary skills, hes determined to resume operations as soon as possible. Whether its seafood, whether its fine dining, Im going to make it happen, Mr. Duncan added. Cathy Haworth is a certified business consultant for the SBDC and the Naples Accelerator. The accelerator is a public-private partnership between Collier County and non-profit Economic Incubators Inc., which was converted into the countys Business Recovery Center after Irma to assist small businesses with applying for Bridge Loans and SBA loans. Activity was brisk at the center in the storms immediate aftermath, and while the pace has slowed, inquiries are still being received two months later. Ms. Haworth said that in reviewing the means of repayment portion of applications, she noticed two trends. People in retail are saying seasons almost here, she said. September is a slow month for me anyway, so even though I was closed for two weeks, it wasnt traumatic. However, I dont have the revenue to purchase my inventory for the season. So what were doing with the Bridge Loan is providing them with the means to purchase their inventory now and then be able to repay that loan at the end of the season. It was a different and darker experience for Colliers restaurants. The problem there is their inventory was destroyed, said Ms. Haworth. They didnt have any refrigeration and they had to start from scratch. In some cases, the physical damage was to a leased facility and they have to relocate and its really, really traumatic. According to a Lee County Economic Development Office, post-storm survey, about 96 of businesses are open and more than 95 percent of businesses reported experiencing a business interruption of more than five days due to power outage, which was the primary problem reported. Coming in second was flooding, which damaged buildings and equipment and limited access to facilities. In addition, 84 percent of businesses reported Irma-caused economic damage or damage to facilities and the Lee EDO is working with companies that request help in a variety of ways. The surveys organizer, Rachel Busch, the Lee County EDOs strategic projects manager, said the agency is assisting businesses with finding temporary digs or new locations because of storm damage. Warren Baucom, a business assistance specialist with the Lee EDO, said the agency has been assisting companies whose operations were interrupted by the storm by finding temporary work for displaced employees by referring them to CareerSource Southwest Florida. There are a lot of the temporary jobs in hurricane recovery through the SBA and other agencies that can allow these people to have income until their employer is back up and running, he added. He said he noticed more physical damage to businesses after Hurricane Charley, which struck the area in 2004. I think, all in all, the impact on the business community wasnt quite the same it was with Charley, Mr. Baucom added. Anecdotally, Ive heard from a couple businesses say that at least it didnt hit Lee later, during the season. Their concern was that people know that were still open for business so that we can still have a regular season. If theyd had to close down during high season, they would really lose cash flow. If theres silver lining, its that came in the off-season. Power outages of up to one week disrupted Charlotte Countys retail and service industries, but those losses were offset by pre-Irma purchases by people preparing for the storm, said Lucienne Pears, the countys director of economic development. Charlottes c onstruction industry bounced back immediately after the storm, she added, and the tourism industry actually received a boost because of Irma. Due to mass evacuations ordered for the Keys and the East Coast, and recovery workers arriving after the storm, hotel occupancy was up more than 37 percent in September 2017 vs. September 2016, which is typically one of the slower months of the year, said Ms. Pears.

In some cases, the physical damage was to a leased facility, and they ha ve to relocate, and its really, really traumatic. Cathy Haworth, a certified business consultant for the SBDC and the Naples AcceleratorHARLEYFrom page 24of the preconceptions people have about motorcycles and their riders. He cited the hit television series Sons of Anarchy as, for many, the only exposure they have to the realm of motorcyclists. A lot of nonriders think thats what Harley is about. That club-type activity its really not, Mr. Green said. As the baby boomer population continues to age and move on from riding, Harley-Davidsons corporate arm is pushing to create 2 million new riders. Theyve carried the consumption side of Harley for a long time, Mr. Greene said. How do we create more riders? Thats why they make every effort to make members of the community, clients and their staff, alike, feel at home. Three years ago, Fischer and Greene decided to take a big leap by investing in the Six Bends Harley-Davidson, a dealership twice the size of Naples, along with the accompanying Top Rocker Field, equipped to handle all types of events. Its taken time to find the right balance of events. We still have our core customers, but we find people that would rather come to Naples, and some that come to Six Bends, Mr. Greene said of the two dealerships. They both have an entirely different feel. Some like the entertainment up there, others like the smaller store with fewer staff on hand. Every Saturday morning free coffee and donuts are offered in the Naples dealership. It offers a number of educational opportunities to learn how to ride as well as getting the necessary motorcycle endorsement. We train over a thousand students per year between both stores, Mr. Greene said. Im always surprised by how many people take the class that already own and ride a motorcycle. You get people that have never ridden, but many who having been riding a long time without that endorsement who decide its time to get it. Please get it! he implored current and future riders. Mr. Greenes mission is to try to expose the vast majority of people who dont ride to what Harley is all about. Top Rocker Field helps with that, attracting people from all over the region for events of all shapes and sizes, including food truck rallies and concerts. Theyve got their own thoughts on what (Harley) might look like, Mr. Greene said of nonriders. Theres some who are intimidated that theyre not part of the club. How will I be received? Some of it is a lack of awareness about how accessible and affordable the product really is. He admitted that the danger aspect is what attracts some riders, but it also shies people away. Theres so much training and safety classes out there to educate and protect yourself. At events, the Jump-Start simulator is used. Anyone can jump on a real motorcycle and go through the motions in an entirely safe environment. We put a real bike on it, strap the rider down, and they can go through the gears completely safe and confined, Mr. Greene said. Mr. Greene credits his father, John, and two mentors in the motorcycle business, Harry Friedman and Ed Lemco, for helping him develop his business acumen. You learn about the proper amount of risk that youre comfortable with starting a business. I think my big takeaway from all of them is employees, culture, morale, internally, if you can get that right the ability to take good care of your customer becomes a lot easier. Proper culture and process allows customers to get well-served, and the finances take care of themselves. A Q&A with John Greene: What was your first job? A cart attendant at a Target in Littleton, Colo. I used to shag carts there. In the winter time it wasnt that much fun. Things you look for when hiring: We have three core values. Reliability, commitment and attitude. When we first adopted the organizational health model, theres a series of questions you have to ask and answer as an ownership group. Some come down to, What does your business do? Then it gets deeper: Why does your business exist? How do you behave? Favorite business book? The Advantage. Its the culmination of all the Patrick Lencione books. We use it regularly. Business words of wisdom? Theres a line of choice. Above the line is ownership, personal responsibility. Below you have blame, excuses, denial. Its tough to have a good business if you or anyone on the team is operating below the line. Any job openings now? None right now.

A30 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY of observations and data points aimed at helping prospective buyers and sellers make informed decisions that positively impact the region. They come out with a quarterly review of the real estate market in the form of a book available to anyone for free on their website, landsolutions. net. Market Trends 2017 was a culmination of the research, with the tone of the evening being mindful of uncertainty regarding the effects of Irma, but cautious optimism about the sustained growth in Southwest Florida since the Great Recession in 2008. Our 2017-18 market is very similar to a hurricane, Mr. Thibaut said to a smattering of chuckles from the crowd. Theres things we need to watch for. If were not prepared, we could get slammed. Mr. Thibauts stat-based observations provided a big-picture look at some of the reasons for the current growth trajectory of Southwest Florida real estate, and a window into what went wrong before the crash. Residential building permits issued provides context to the state of affairs a decade ago, and according to Land Solutions, an encouraging sign that current growth is sustainable. According to Land Solutions data, the total number of residential building permits issued in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties hovered around 10,000 in the year 2000, then ballooned to 44,000 in 2005 amidst the real estate boom. That number plummeted to just over 2,000 permits in 2009. The number of residential permits has ticked upward ever since, returning to pre-recession levels with just under 13,000 permits projected through the end of 2017. Whats different this time? Many factors, according to Mr. Thibaut, but a big one is the shift from smaller home builder outfits to national powerhouses such as DR Horton, Toll Brothers, Pulte Homes and Lennar. Mr. Thibaut says the Board of Lee County Commissioners focus on keeping impact fees low and the lower price of land in Charlotte County has allowed these national outfits to focus on the value-conscious buyer: people looking for homes in the $300K and less range. We found the value-seeking retirement buyer show up in numbers we did not expect, said DR Horton division president Jonathon Pentecost. He lent Mr. Thibaut a video interview, along with several other local builders, detailing their thoughts on the Southwest Florida scene. Land Solutions data also showed a remarkable rise in apartments and assisted living facilities in Southwest Florida, boosting the number of permits in Lee County by 33 percent year over year. Mr. Thibaut attributes this, low Lee and Charlotte impact fees, and the rise in development of Cape Coral and Lehigh, as reasons these builders are able to continue offering affordable homes. Financing has been a bit of a challenge since we recovered from the downtown, said Mr. Pentecost, citing new lending requirements and buyers renewed focus on their monthly payment. (Buyers) want their payment to fit their lifestyle. Mr. Thibaut said Collier Countys high impact fees keep builders from investing in affordable housing, pushing them toward Lee and Charlotte. We saw Colliers residential permits flatten out last year, he said. That million-dollar buyer will always be there, but how do you produce that under-$300K price point? You have to keep in check the cost to do business. That includes impact fees and permit fees. Another video from Mike Timmerman of Meyers Research, a national real estate data firm, provided another positive insight to the real estate scene. Pricing has leveled off than in prior years moving forward in these markets, we expect to continue seeing solid, slow growth, which is what we really want to have, he said. Mr. Thibaut cited a number of significant land deals occurring across Southwest Florida that should continue to have lasting, positive effects on the region. He cited Stock Developments purchase of a land parcel near the Ritz-Carlton off Vanderbilt Beach Road; DR Hortons land investment past Winkler Road in Fort Myers and Tuckers Grade by Tuckers Point in Charlotte County. He mentioned the Whole Foods currently being constructed in Lee County as a game-changer for the area. Right now, weve got a healthy market and blue skies, Mr. Thibaut said near the end of his presentation. Despite all the positive signs, Mr. Thibaut admitted its still very difficult for the value-conscious buyer to find a good deal without sacrificing location. The dynamics of our market are rapidly changing. Baby boomers are coming with less money in their pocket thanks to low interest rate portfolios, low income, theyve tapped into their equity instead of buying that $400K retirement home, theyre targeting $250K, Mr. Thibaut said. For Millennials, the future is uncertain for their ability to afford a new home. With interest rates expected to rise in the near future and impact fees projected to rise throughout the area in 2018, Theyll be forced into apartments and/ or renting, unless theyre willing to forgo location. He cited several factors to watch as the regions positive trend continues to tick into one of the longer periods of growth in recent memory, including interest rates, being mindful of using home equity for cash, changes in the local political climate, and the increase of impact fees. The statistics and the natural order of things are telling us that we need to be careful. Mr. Thibaut says it goes back to the effects of Hurricane Irma on the builders ability to operate affordably. You never know whats going to come from this storm, said Darin McMurray, regional vice president of Lennar Homes. Not only did we have power issues, we had sod issues, screen enclosure issues. The storm will continue to affect usis it months or is it years? Labor shortage and a lack of affordable land also comes into play according to Mr. Thibaut. With materials and laboring going toward massive recovery efforts in Florida and Texas, coupled with rising fees and interest rates, the long-term outlook is murky. Matt Walsh of Observer Media Group opened the program by highlighting some potential dilemmas with the population growth Southwest Florida has seen of late. A lack of diversity of the economy, and housing affordability, Mr. Walsh said. He cited Dr. Chris Westley of Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Regional Economic Research Institute with providing housing statistics. They provided a daunting picture for the average SWFL resident: the cost of housing in Collier consumes fifty percent of a workers paycheck, nearly 40 percent in Lee, Charlotte and Saraosta, yet only 20 percent in Hillsborough County. Mr. Walsh is optimistic that the population growth will create an environment forcing local elected officials to act accordingly. Local governments will be challenged to create the right economic and regulatory climate to let the marketplace work. No one can stop Floridas growthso rather than fight it and make it prohibitive to live here, why not embrace it?

COURTESY PHOTOSFannie Mae, Freddie Mac conservatorship takes center stage NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSNearly a decade after the federal government took control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac through conservatorship, little progress has been made in finalizing housing finance policy that can take the secondary mortgage market beyond the status quo. Leaders on the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance took steps to change that earlier this month with a hearing titled Sustainable Housing Finance: Private Sector Perspectives on Housing Finance Reform. Industry leaders, including the National Association of Realtors, testified at the event. Kevin Brown, chair of NARs Conventional Financing Committee, told members of Congress during his testimony that Realtors have two key objectives in the housing finance reform discussion. First, Realtors want to ensure that in all markets affordable mortgage capital will always remain available for creditworthy Americans, Mr. Brown said. And second, Realtors believe that taxpayer dollars should be protected. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both considered government-sponsored enterprises, are responsible for providing liquidity to lending institutions through a secondary mortgage market, where loans are securitized and sold to investors. This activity affords banks and other lending institutions the liquidity to continue making loans, while incentivizing them to make mortgage products like the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage available to middle-class consumers. NAR has argued that it is time to move Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac out of conservatorship, which Mr. Brown said is unsustainable in its current form. Instead, he offered a clear vision for a government-chartered, non-shareholder owned system that puts its service to homeowners and SEE FANNIE, B3 Naples TOP 1 % Our Experience Counts.

taxpayers ahead of profits. NAR believes this structure, with clearly defined roles and enhanced safeguards, is the best model for the new authorities because it establishes a separate legal identity from the federal government while serving a public purpose, he said. Unlike a federal agency, government-chartered organizations are established to be politically independent and often are self-sustaining not requiring appropriations from Congress, he added. The ability of the authorities to focus on their mission, without the need to chase risky profitdriven opportunities, is an important criteria for Realtors. As part of the reformed system, Mr. Brown outlined some important criteria for success including: An explicit government guarantee of the new authorities. Putting profits toward capital reserves to alleviate losses that occur during market fluctuations and economic downturns. Converting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into the new authorities to utilize existing infrastructure and capabilities and minimize market disruption. The government-chartered authorities are preferable to nationalized or fully privatized systems, Mr. Brown said, because they could respond to market downturns effectively, while also minimizing taxpayer exposure to losses. He also suggested that the new authorities should utilize a regulated, retained portfolio, which could be tapped during a downturn or to test innovative mortgage products. The stakes have never been higher for the housing market and the broader economy, Mr. Brown told members of Congress. Yet there are sizeable challenges and risks associated with the ongoing conservatorships of the enterprises. Comprehensive housing finance reform enacted by Congress will help address many of these issues.

B8 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYRonto creating legacy in Southwest FloridaWith different communities in development, The Ronto Group continues to create an impressive legacy within Southwest Floridas luxury homebuyer market. From TwinEagles classic country club ambiance, to Naples Squares walkable lifestyle, the glittering Seaglass tower at Bonita Bay, a new project on Central Avenue in downtown Naples that will launch this month, and the gated resort-style Naples Orange Blossom community, Ronto is shaping how people live in one of the most desirable locales in the world. Ronto was named recipient of the Gold Award for Best Developer in the Naples Daily News 2016 Peoples Choice Awards. When the real estate market collapsed in late 2008, growth at TwinEagles subsided. In September 2010, Ronto acquired TwinEagles and focused on enhancing the communitys amenities, enrolling a group of Preferred Builders, and introducing new product offerings and neighborhoods. Under Rontos leadership, six neighborhoods have sold out, and three new neighborhoods have been introduced. After just 28 sales in Rontos first two years at TwinEagles, things shifted in 2013 when 65 sales were processed. That was followed by 95 sales in 2014 and a similar number in 2015. In 2016, 184 new construction sales contracts worth $120,844,552 were processed. This year, sales have topped $50 million and the community is nearly 90% sold. A tranquil natural setting and an array of world-class amenities, including two championship golf courses, continue to attract homebuyers. The 1,115-acre gated community was recognized by Boardroom magazine as a Distinguished Emerald Club. TwinEagles Talon Golf Course will host the Chubb Classic PGA Champions Tour in February. The 2018 event will mark the seventh consecutive year and 12th time overall TwinEagles Talon course has served as the Tournament site. The communitys Eagle Course was named Best New U.S. Private Course of the Year by Golf Magazine. A 47,000 square-foot clubhouse pays homage to St. Andrews where the game of golf was born. The Clubhouse offers an unparalleled dining experience created by the 2015 ACF Presidents Medallion recipient Chef Chas Tatigian. The Clubhouse is complemented by a community swimming pool and fitness center. The complex includes a 2,500-square foot pool with a spa, a zero-entry feature, and a sunning deck overlooking a lake. An outdoor lounge, dining venue, and lighted Har-Tru tennis courts are located adjacent to the pool. The 6,430-square foot fitness center includes locker rooms, areas for aerobics and yoga, as well as an expansive fitness hall. At Naples Square, Ronto embraced the trend toward transforming downtown areas from serving as attractive destinations to places where people are fully engaged in city life. This new form of urbanism presents an opportunity to live in a way that puts every aspect of life within walking distance, including dining, grocery shopping, retail stores, entertainment venues, theater, healthcare and specialty services. Naples Square is being developed by Ronto at the corner of 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples and has transformed the downtown district. The communitys walkable lifestyle is bringing a sense of cohesion to downtown by connecting 5th Avenue to Bayfront with access on 10th Street via 3rd Avenue South. The walkable lifestyle and the availability of one and two-story, two and three-bedroom plus den floor plans with open-concept living areas and open-air terraces continue to generate strong sales and luxury homebuyer traffic. Phase I was sold out before completion. The Phase II building has two units remaining. Phase III purchase agreements worth more than $36 million have been processed. Ronto expects to start Phase III construction this year. Ronto has announced plans for the Shoppes at Naples Square. The project will be a combination of retail and restaurant space on the eastern edge of the Naples Square site. Ronto anticipates retail openings in 2019. In addition, Gulfshore Playhouse is poised to close on its purchase of a three-acre tract within Naples Square and is developing plans for the construction of a multimillion-dollar 56,000 square feet complex that will include two theaters and an education wing to support programming for children, adults and families. With nearly $143 million in sales processed and construction scheduled for completion next summer, sales continue to expand at Rontos 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower within Bonita Bay that was named one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions. With the combination of the buildings tower floor plans, Bonita Bay Club membership opportunities, and an array of world-class amenities, Seaglass is redefining the luxury high-rise experience in Southwest Florida. A choice selection of tower residences priced from just over $1 million remains available. Ronto is developing an 8.8-acre site formerly home to the Naples Daily News on Central Avenue two blocks north of Naples Square. The development is approved for 212 residential units and approximately 8,000 square feet of commercial space fronting Central Avenue. Scheduled to launch this month, Ronto has indicated it will embrace the walkable, bikeable characteristics that will continue to unify Naples downtown district. Located at 1948 Oil Well Road, Orange Blossom Naples offers an affordable resort lifestyle with amenities that include a new Community Center with a fitness center and catering kitchen, multiple swimming pools, a spa, hammocks, a shade pavilion, cabanas, beach chairs, tennis courts, sand volleyball, bocce ball, and basketball courts. Stylish, energy efficient new residences by Lennar Corporation and Pulte include Executive Homes priced from the mid-$200s and Manor Homes priced from the $300s.

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bay offers dramatic Gulf ViewsTower 1 approaching sellout The first residential tower at Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, is 90 percent sold. Of the 120 residences in the 22-story tower, only 12 remain. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2 earlier this year, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. Currently, the number of residences already under contract in the second tower exceeds the $60 million mark. 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/4.5bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. 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 Lodge. 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, Lodge 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 Lodge. 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 openair 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 Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. 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 when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. 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-theart fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. 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. 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, said Lodge. 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. The Club at Kalea Bay will be in excellent hands when it opens. Thats because Stephen G. Jones, CCM, has been hired as the Clubs General Manager. The same holds true for its tennis program with the recent hiring of the clubs new Director of Tennis Nestor Nunez. Kalea Bays Inga Lodge and Lori Pheasant are also among the best in their industry. During the recent Sand Dollar Awards, sponsored by the Collier Building Industry Association, Lodge was named the Sales Manager of the Year and Pheasant took home the Sales Person of the Year award. The three furnished models at Kalea Bay, which are located in Tower 1, also received several prestigious Sand Dollar Awards in a multitude of categories including, two for Interior Design of the Year and two for Best Specialty feature. One of the models also won in the category Best Closet Design. 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, twotenths of a mile.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 REAL ESTATE B15Pre-construction incentives top list of reasons to visit Babcock RanchSolar-powered town has full calendar of holiday eventsBabcock Ranch is serving up plenty of reasons to spend some time at in the solar-powered city over the next few weeks. In addition to pre-construction incentives being offered by builders through the end of the year the new town is offering up a full calendar of activities and a sweet new destination at Founders Square for its very first holiday season. Located off State Road 31 north of the Lee County Civic Center, the environmentally-friendly town being built by Kitson & Partners will eventually include 19,500 homes, nearly 50,000 residents and six million square feet of commercial space. The very first residents will be settling into their new homes in the Lake Timber neighborhood in early January. But there is already a bustle of daily activity at the heart of the new town, and the latest addition to Founders Square seems destined to quickly become a favorite gathering place. Some of my fondest memories of growing up in a small town revolve around the ice cream shop. Every Friday night after a football game, families would walk over for ice cream, said Syd Kitson, Chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners. I want to deliver that same kind of experience for families who make their home at Babcock Ranch. Square Scoops Ice Cream served up its first cones and sundaes as part of the Make the Move event November 4th that kicked of pre-sale of homes in two new neighborhoods at Babcock Ranch with prices starting in the $190s. Located on Founders Square just across the street from Babcock Neighborhood School, its quickly become a favorite for students and parents alike. In addition to 16 flavors of ice cream, sorbet and sherbet for an after-school treat, its selection of craft coffees makes it a handy place for parents to get their morning caffeine jolt. Sweet deals planned for the official Grand Opening Celebration on Friday, November 17th from 3-5 pm include $1 Double Square Scoops and $1 Coffees. Holiday lighting tours this year should definitely include a stop at Babcock Ranch. Founders Square will flip the switch season on December 2nd with a tree-lighting celebration featuring the Whispering Pines Clydesdale Horses, photo opportunities with Santa, and performances by the Babcock Neighborhood School chorus, the Alva School Chorus and Charisma from Charlotte High School. All are invited to participate in the free event which will get underway at 6:30 pm. On December 9 starting at 7:30 am, running enthusiasts can get ahead of their holiday calorie intake at the Jingle Bell 5k and 10k at Babcock Ranch. Later that day, a Classic Car Cruise will bring car enthusiasts out to showcase their collections at Founders Square. The free event will run from 4-8 pm. Other events on the calendar include live music at Table & Tap December 3, 9 and 10. The lakefront farm-to-table restaurant will be serving from its special brunch menu December 16 and 17. Curry Creek Outfitters is adding some evening activities to its offerings including full moon nature hikes and sunset cruises on Lake Babcock aboard an electricpowered boat. The great thing about Babcock Ranch is that you dont have to live here to be part of what were doing, Kitson said. Were creating a real hometown, an inviting place where people from all around the area can connect with nature and with each other. Its exciting to be able to estab lish traditions that will carry forward and create give our town a true sense of place. Pre-construction incentives being offered by homebuilders through the end of the year are spurring rapid growth for Babcock Ranch. Builders came away from the Make the Move event with full calendars of appointments with prospective buyers. Model homes at Lake Timber are open daily for tours. Those interested in homes in the Trails Edge and Parkside neighborhoods can meet with representatives of Lennar and Pulte at the Hatchery, the collaborative workspace located upstairs from Slaters Goods & Provisions. Weve got an outstanding roster of builders who are helping to deliver on the promise of a real, multi-generational home town. The two new neighborhoods now under construction bring in a variety of floorplans in the price ranges where weve seen the greatest demand particularly from young families and empty nesters, Kitson said. The season got off to an early start and were excited to see what the rest of the year brings. All three neighborhoods currently under construction at Babcock Ranch are within easy walking distance of Founders Square. Babcock Ranch will celebrate its official grand opening on March 10, 2018, when the final building at Founders Square, the health and wellness center, will open for business.

B20 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYMy first visit to the models in Caminetto at MediterraIf youve been reading my missives every Friday, you know Ive been searching for a new home in a community where I can live the way I choose to live. After checking out just about every place in Naples, a couple of weeks ago I visited the Mediterra community on Livingston Parkway in North Naples for the first time. Do you believe in love at first sight? If I didnt before, I do now. Mediterra is a beautiful place with every amenity on my checklist: a private 10,000 square-foot beach club, two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses, a magnificent clubhouse with an outdoor terrace and lounge, a fitness center, spa, pool, tennis, bocce, hiking trails, need I go on? Even with all the things to do, though, what impresses me the most is the feeling I get when I drive through the gate. Its as if I immediately decompress. To me, thats a priceless feeling! Im back at Mediterra to visit the model homes in the Caminetto neighborhood with my Sales Executive, Lisa. Heres what shes told me: there are two completed Caminetto models, and a third is planned. Its the newest of the Lake District neighborhoods developed by London Bay Homes, an award-winning homebuilder and developer in the Southwest Florida luxury home market for more than three decades who manages all new home construction sales and marketing for Mediterra. Singlefamily villa homes are priced from the high $1-millions to the low $3-millions. When Lisa and I first drove through Caminetto, I was struck by how its so peacefully connected with its natural surroundings. Its as if life celebrates the neighborhoods views of lakes and nature preserves along with short walks to the Parterre Garden, a sanctuary of formal gardens, sitting areas, and a reflecting pond. Suffice it to say, Caminetto is a place that felt comfortable to me. Naturally, Ive been looking forward to seeing the models, both of which have interiors by Romanza Interior Design. We started in the Carmela model. I was immediately taken by the openness of the floor plan, how it flows so easily, all the natural light, and how every area of the home seems to gravitate to the outdoors. The great room and a caf off the island kitchen have pocketing sliders that open to an outdoor living area and outdoor kitchen overlooking a pool, spa and a fire table. A French door in the master suite leads to the pool patio. To top it off, a private yoga garden is accessible from the master bathroom. I would say the interior design style is transitional classic lines, textures, and patterns punctuated by soft contemporary art and accessory selections. The whole look is upscale, and conveys a romantic, inviting feeling. The designer chose a sophisticated on-trend color palette that mixes white and grey tones with blush, gold, and bronze. Really stunning! Beautiful beamed ceiling details work beautifully in the foyer, great room, dining room, and kitchen. The beams and the baseboards and crown molding throughout the home are painted grey. I love how the kitchens white and gray painted cabinetry works with the polished quartz countertops and a mixed-size horizontal mosaic backsplash. Long-plank driftwood-toned oak flooring really ties everything together and has a rustic feeling. Oh, the Carmela is 3,835 square feet under air and has three bedrooms, a study and a butlers bar off the kitchen that has a wine refrigerator. I looked at Lisa. She smiled and said, Its $2,850,000 with the furnishings. It was my turn to smile! Next up was the Sonoma model. Its a two-story home with plenty of room: 4,421 square feet under air, four bedrooms, a big great room, a bonus room, and an upstairs with a lounge, wet bar, and guest suite. My first thought was, Wow! What a great floor plan! So many places to go. Its perfect for entertaining or having out-of-town guests! This plan also makes it pretty easy to incorporate the outdoors in your lifestyle. The great room opens to an intimate covered terrace, and the outdoor living, dining, and kitchen area. Zero-corner pocketing sliding glass doors in the bonus room also open to the covered outdoor spaces. French double-doors in the master suite lead to the pool patio overlooking a pool with a sun shelf and spa. A private garden shower is accessible from the master bathroom and the pool patio. Everywhere I went it seemed as if I could be inside and outside all at the same time! The interior designer really got the Sonomas connection with the outdoors. She created what I say is an organic contemporary design with natural materials, including limestone, natural oak, grass cloth, and bark cloth. The look is highlighted by 36 by 36-inch honed limestone flooring finished in a distinctive champagne tone. The flooring is complemented by ivory-toned walls and slateblue and chamois accent elements. The design is sophisticated, but the use of all the natural materials really connects the home with Caminettos beautiful surroundings. I wanted to touch all the materials and textures! This time when I looked at Lisa, her smile was even bigger. Its $3,125,000 furnished, she said. All I could do was nod my approval! Stay tuned Ill let you know about the models in the Cabreo neighborhood next time! Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Parkway two miles north of Immokalee Road. The Sales Center and model residences are open daily. Visit Mediterra online at MediterraNaples.com.

According to Darline Hillard, director of sales at AQUA, the contemporary and coastal interior designs show the versatility of how residences at the boutique marina front high-rise tower community can live. People love that they can see several ways the residences can be furnished, explains Ms. Hillard. In fact, many people buying at AQUA have been visiting the models for decorating ideas, she adds. Both models have a great room and a living room floor plans that appeal to people moving from a single-family home to a maintenance-free waterfront lifestyle. Each model reflects the modern architectural style of the high-rise and showcases several features of AQUAs sophisticated and refined design, while offering distinctly different floor plans and finishes. The contemporary model spans 4,171 square feet under air and includes three bedrooms, a den and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The fully furnished model is priced at $2.545 million.The model has a great room, kitchen and living room that line up against large windows overlooking the nearby marina. Design elements are very modern: a table with a center cutout, black coffee tables in three layers with smaller black tables, shimmering wallpaper and a linear fireplace.Jerilyn Antonacci, president of Antonacci Design Group, created the interior design. She was inspired by the curves of the building and the views of the water.The view is what we are always striving for, so we kept the open floor plan and created a palate of modern colors, she says. Finishes are important, she says. I brought in different metals. Golds have become very popular. Mixing metals has become very popular. The master bedroom overlooks the water, so Antonacci boosted the view with a large oval mirror over the bed to reflect that scenery. She used lots of white and gold colors, and unique design elements. The wall behind the bed features a wallpaper starburst. Modern artwork is placed throughout. Textured artwork and a little bling has been popular, Antonacci says. The master bathroom features a twoperson built-in tub nestled against a big picture window that overlooks the water. A silk hand-knotted throw by Ann Gish styles the bed in one of the guest rooms. The second guest room is a blush pink. The den has a long built-in desk and cubbies nestled in the wall. Everything in the residence features texture and the textures are varied: smooth glass flooring next to marble flooring, warm wood floors in the bedrooms, and wallpaper of various textures. The coastal model mixes Florida and California styles. At 3,940 square feet, this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath condo is listed at $2.445 million.It has the shells and the colors of the sand and the water and the sky, says the designer, Renee Gaddis. But we put in some very simple transitional furniture pieces. The lines of the pieces have a little more of the California clean feel. So it was a mix.The layout sweeps from a sunrise terrace to a sunset terrace, and Gaddis uses this expanse to create rooms that make the most of those views. The family room is near the sunset terrace, the kitchen in the middle and the living room by the sunrise terrace. Gaddis adds her own distinctive touches, such as a glass wine closet by the entry and a butlers pantry in a nook in the kitchen. One of my favorite things that they allowed me to do was change the layout of the kitchen, Gaddis says. I believe when people relocate to Florida they arent formal. They arent entertaining in a formal setting, so the more open kitchen feel can allow someone to work in the kitchen while people are hanging out. The sunrise terrace features what Gaddis refers to as the orb. It is an oversized rounded couch with a canopy on top. It is a very welcoming seating area. Gaddis added some rustic touches such as wood beams in the ceiling and barn doors on a storage area mixed with beach elements. The wooden shell of a kayak hangs on the wall near the entry. Turtle shells cover another wall. The master bedroom has black coral framed in shadow boxes along with a spray of white coral on a circular table. The guest area has a private entrance with a wet bar between the two rooms. Both guest suites have doors to the sunrise terrace, and both have white cottage-style ceiling planks. Aqua opened its first 11-story tower with 38 condos in December 2008. The second 32-unit tower opened in May. Prices range from $1.995 million to $4.850 million. Contracts for AQUA Tower II are ongoing, with Naples-based PACT Realty serving as the exclusive listing agent. The two furnished models are available for purchase and open daily for viewing.

B22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYAffordable, social lifestyle within reach at Naples ReserveNaples Reserve has attracted homebuyers with its affordable, social lifestyle and resort-style community of Southern Coastal-inspired attached villa, single-family and custom estate homes. The time is right to discover your new home and casually awesome lifestyle in this best-selling South Naples community. A select number of move-in ready lakefront homes are still available in Naples Reserves Sparrow Cay, Savannah Lakes, Egret Landing and Mallard Point neighborhoods. When Felipe and Cristina Duran started their new home search, Naples Reserves amenities and value set it apart from other communities. The look and feel of the community really appealed to us, said Cristina. The lot sizes and affordable and comprehensive HOA fees were added incentives. The Durans, who purchased a lake view home in the Savannah Lakes neighborhood, said they regularly take advantage of the Island Clubs fitness center and pool. We also enjoy Fire Pit Friday! said Cristina. Naples Reserve residents enjoy a full social calendar planned by Lifestyle and Fitness Director Carri Adam, who themes many of the events around activities and amenities offered in the community. Our events are a great way for residents to get to know their neighbors as they familiarize themselves with Naples Reserves amenities and all of the social opportunities offered within the community, said Adam. Adam also regularly hosts educational and entertaining presentations. During these events, residents have learned paddleboard basics, practiced bocce ball and brushed up on their CPR technique. Adam, who also manages Naples Reserves clubhouse, has planned a tennis expo at Naples Reserves newly opened Match Point complex and a Hydro Bike demo on Eagle Lake. Upcoming events include a Holiday Lights trolley tour, with dinner at Mercato followed by a tour of Victoria Park and other holiday light displays. Residents are already filling their 2018 social calendar with a Polynesian Luau in January, Casino Night in March and an R&B Night to celebrate the end of another fun season at Naples Reserve. From ladies Lunch Bunch to weekly mahjong games and community ice cream socials, Naples Reserve makes it easy to get to know your neighbors and make new friends. All of the experiences residents share make it a close-knit community, said Adam. Naples Reserve residents Tom and Sue Marquardt lived in Annapolis, Maryland, for 36 years prior to moving to Naples Reserve. A year ago, the couple selected the Minorca, a three-bedroom, three-bath Ashton Woods home with 2,663 square feet of living space in the Sparrow Cay neighborhood. As new residents, the Marquardts took getting social into their own hands and organized progressive dinners with their Sparrow Cay neighbors. It was something we enjoyed doing with our friends in Maryland, and its a great way to bring people together, said Marquardt. A year later, the dinners have grown to a quarterly event for eight couples. Their next dinner? A complete meal planned around a regional theme. Retired from the newspaper publishing industry, Marquardt now has more time to devote to activities like kayaking on Naples Reserves Eagle Lake, swimming laps in the pool and biking, but he enjoys more social pursuits as well. He and Sue havent missed one of Adams community events. In fact, Marquardt an oenophile who has a website and writes a weekly syndicated column, Wine Etc. helped coordinate a wine tasting event in the spring at the Outrigger Center that was attended by more than 50 Naples Reserve residents. Weve never been in a community that has been this active. There is high energy here and a thriving drive to get to know each other. Weve made so many new friends, said Marquardt. Moving to Naples Reserve was the smartest thing we did in retirement. iStar has completed the communitys initial lakefront resortinspired amenities, including the $7 million Island Club social center featuring a 5,160-square-foot clubhouse and an adjacent 3,500-square-foot fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment and a movement studio for spinning, Zumba and yoga. Outdoors, an expansive, resortstyle, zero-entry pool offers dedicated lap lanes and ample room for relaxation. Indoor and alfresco gathering areas at the Island Club include a lakeside fire pit, and casual beverage and dining options at Chat n Chill Tiki Bar and Latitudes Cafe. At the Outrigger Center, a variety of watercraft options are available for resident use, while Duffy electric boat cruises departing from the docks offer opportunities to explore Eagle Lake and Kontiki Island. The centers flex-space is available for game days, special events and other activities. Additional planned amenities include Kids C ove, a playgr ound and picnic area, an additional dog park and a meandering linear park for biking, hiking and jogging. Navigating a loop road circling Naples Reserve, the park is designed to engage residents with their natural environment and provide an alternative mode of transportation throughout the community. Naples Reserve residents receive complimentary one-year social memberships at Walkers Hideaway Marina of Naples, a yacht club along the Gordon River offering a marina, indoor storage for 600 boats, two waterside restaurants, outdoor pool and sauna, and access to Naples Bay. Naples Reserve was created by iStar, which was named 2015 Developer of the Year by Builder and Developer magazine for its commitment to creating exceptional communities and lifestyles with an emphasis on energy efficiency and environmental stewardship. Created amongst 22 lakes, Naples Reserve offers scenic vistas of Eagle Lake, as well as a mile-long stretch of lakefront to explore by water, nestled against the Picayune Strand State Forest, a 76,000-acre state park with protected pinelands, cypress swamps, marshes and abundant wildlife.

Curating a glorious new home at highly advantageous terms. Deriving substantial income from your investment property. Or creating an extraordinary getaway experience in your most desired destination. Clients routinely entrust us with daunting objectives like these. And we wouldnt have it any other way. *Awarded by Lee County BIA What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year? As with most industries, the shift to digital services and the online presence that retailers have presented the consumer have left them very empowered. From the comfort of your living room or your desk, you can shop, compare, negotiate and be as stern as youd like, as you have complete anonymity sitting behind that keyboard. However, when it comes to certain things, like buying or selling a home, owning a rental property or planning your next dream vacation experience, it is still essential for the consumer to have professional guidance and service regardless of whether it is online or telephonically. Hence the power of reviews and social media comments. Again, the consumer is extremely brave when he or she has anonymity from behind that keyboard. The most significant change is actually a constant: The consumers need and desire to talk with someone who is local and not in another state managing their vacation or rental experience. They want to know that the guidance that is being given is first-hand and not being read from a script. Online companies simply cannot provide the same or better level of service and knowledge as a company whose local team works, lives and plays here in our paradise. While we and other online companies grow, we still interact with each guest and owner personally. Our housekeeping and maintenance teams with their fleet of 50-plus vehicles ensure each guest receives the treatment they expect; the treatment they deserve. For Royal Shell companies, customer service is not just a buzz word that is part of some mission statement or core values that sits in a desk drawer. It is a calling, a way of life and a belief that our staff embraces from years of serving our clients, many of them multi-year repeat clients. We like to tell folks that with Royal Shell you can buy, sell, rent and vacation all under one shell.Whats your superpower? I learned a long time ago you can accomplish great things when you surround yourself with great people. I wouldnt call it a superpower but maybe a super-purpose. I enjoy seeing others grow and succeed. I enjoyed that with my first internet company, when we were paving the way in the early s. I enjoy it more than ever today.What will you base your success on for 2018? The satisfaction of our buyers, sellers, owners and guests will be the measure of our success. We base everything on showing our appreciation for their trust in Royal Shell. Also, our continued growth and investment in our community. In 1997, Royal Shell began with four employees. Today we have 160 and were celebrating our 20th anniversary of being in business in Southwest Florida. How are you growing and developing your employee skills? One of our core values is the belief that we must continually learn to keep an advantage. For our real estate team, we encourage advanced training from our industry associations and industry experts. When it comes to vacation rentals were bringing in trainers for guest services, customer service and our reservations staff. Were purpose driven and our trainers have worked with the Atlantis in Nassau as well as resorts in Las Vegas. Our goal is to always seek a better experience for our customers. How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? For real estate associates, we look for individuals with experience, values and a proven track record. Were not a training ground for new agents. Our associates represent the finest in the business. Our rental team has a broad range of hospitality and real estate experience. We use online job boards and are always looking to hire from our local colleges. What do you truly love about working here in Lee County/Collier County? I get to work where people from around the world come to vacation. I love the variety of Southwest Florida from shopping on Fifth Avenue in Naples to no stop lights on Sanibel. Baseball, golf, fishing, boating, the beaches there is never a lack of opportunity to enjoy the area. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate? I believe you either wake up inspired or you wait to be inspired. We wake up inspired and look for ways to take advantage of any business climate. Opportunity is always there to succeed it just changes the way it looks from time to time. I do find inspiration daily when we help families find their own place in our paradise. Weve helped buyers find a multimillion dollar beachfront compound. Weve also heard from families who have visited our area for years and share the memories of their childhood with their parents vacationing here. And now they want to keep those memories alive for their children. Thats the nature of our business and inspires us each day.What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today? Stay focused and just keep working. Its not what those around you are doing that will be responsible for your success. Take responsibility for your failures and successes. True success only comes from you and Ive never met a successful person who did it working 9 to 5.

Oceanview Publishing, 368 pages. Hardcover, $26.95.Remember 2011, the year of the Arab Spring? That turmoil in the Middle East provides a backdrop for Patricia Gussins fastpaced thriller, Come Home. Plastic surgeon Ahmed Masud, middle son in a wealthy Egyptian family, is called back to Cairo from his home in the U.S. to help prepare for his familys future after the Mubarak regime collapses. Their wealth derives favor from Mubaraks son, who has handed them an Egyptian cotton empire. Also, Ahmeds parents wish to see his 5-year-old son, Alex. Succumbing to their pressure, and unsettled by medical malpractice lawsuits, Ahmed steals Alex away to Cairo, rashly jeopardizing his marriage and the American Dream lifestyle he and his wife, also a plastic surgeon, have shared. Readers will be puzzled by Ahmeds sudden sense of family duty, as was his wife, Dr. Nicole Nelson, who is outraged and crushed by his behavior. Wanting her son back, she rallies the support of her twin sister Natalie and their accomplished, successful brothers. Then a second crisis hits Natalie, who is in charge of a major program at a large pharmaceutical company. Its cancer drug has tested well and is saving lives with the promise of saving many more. However, people are dying of constipation. The FDA insists that this serious problem be cleared up. The drug itself is not deadly; rather, the painkillers prescribed to lessen the patients suffering are causing the problem. Her career in the balance, Natalie has a difficult time juggling the needs of her company and her desire to aide her sister who is reeling from Ahmeds behavior. Natalie, however, is up to the task. The Nelson family hires a major security agency to work on rescuing Alex. The chief of the security team has extensive connections and immediately puts them to use. The plot runs back and forth among happenings in Egypt, Philadelphia, Uruguay, Belgium and Liberia. The Masud family is under great stress, and Ahmeds older and younger brothers are powercrazed psychopaths driven to extremes by the threats to the elite Mubarak establishment and by their own greed. There is a race to solve the pharma problem, another to control and relocate the Masud family, and through it all, the chase after Nicoles missing son.The author creates some interesting symmetries in the character blocks. The Nelson family has three sons and two daughters, and so does the Masud family. In the Nelson family, all three children are successful in a variety of ways, with the women having prestigious careers. The two Masud daughters seem more highly respected than one would expect in a society in which women seem limited by design. Just as Ahmeds career as a surgeon is in jeopardy, Rob Johnson Natalies husband is struggling with a failed business. This leaves each sister with similar additional worries and responsibilities. Constantly exciting, Come Home is filled with detailed information. We get an inside look at the drug industry, the security business, plastic surgery and, though with less detail, the Egyptian cotton industry. The characters are in and out of various countries, the airports that serve them and the airplanes mostly private that whiz them about. All is portrayed with vivid detail. Similarly, the inner details of characterization are convincingly drawn: the balance of confidence and self-doubt, fear and bravado, hope and despair. Though we understand the pressures on Ahmeds brothers and the specific causes of their destructive behavior, they seem a bit overdrawn. These are people without any redeeming qualities, and that absence makes them less credible. All in all, Ms. Gussin delivers an amazing ride with this original, suspenseful and high-powered story.About the author New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Patricia Gussin has practiced medicine and has worked in medical research as worldwide vice president for a leading health-care products company.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYblack woman sitting at a kitchen table, smoking cigarettes, the wisdom of the universe at her fingertips.) You might be surprised to learn that God is 5-foot-4-inch, 41-year-old Latino named Miguel Cintron who grew up in the tough Bushwick section of Brooklyn, N.Y. At least thats how it is in An Act of God, up next at Laboratory Theater of Florida. Mr. Cintron who calls himself a Nuyorican, which is Spanglish for a Puerto Rican from New York didnt even have to audition for the lead role in the off-kilter comedy. Annette (Trossbach, artistic director and founder) from LAB, she was like, This part is yours if you want it, the actor says. She really felt like it was me. Does that mean hes especially godly? He laughs. The shows irreverent, he says. I think thats why she wanted me to play this part; Im good at irreverence. I grew up in the church. Both my father and grandfather were Pentecostal pastors which is why Im an irreverent person. He saw the hypocrisy behind the scenes, he says, but still definitely believes in God and plays the drums every Sunday morning at his church in Fort Myers. He doesnt want to reveal its name. I dont want any of them to come, he says of his fellow worshippers. Hes not sure theyll get the humor. While his wife and daughter are very supportive, he says, his sister is a different story. My sister, shes asking, Why are you playing God? Why are you being in a show thats irreverent like that? You know better than that. But shes still going to come and see it. And shell laugh. Shell huff and puff, but shell laugh, he predicts. He says An Act of God is irreverent in many ways as it pokes fun at the ridiculousness of organized religion. Its kind of like God coming down and making a joke about how people take everything so literally, Mr. Cintron says. Certain things make sense, and thats OK. But certain things in the Bible dont make sense, and we poke fun at it. The premise of the show is that God comes down, chooses a local celebrity and inhabits his or her body in order to communicate. God goes into my body, but I have no idea that Im actually on stage at the Laboratory Theater, he says. God then proceeds to hand down 10 new commandments and talk about certain things that happened in the Bible, explaining what really happened. For example, he says, God actually did create Adam and Steve first, but had to change things around, because Adam and Steve ate from the Tree of the Knowledge That Your Lifestyle is Sinful. Thats what its called in the script. And once they ate of that, then God decided to make Adam and Eve. It pokes fun at the whole idea that God is anti-gay, he says. Its not making fun of gays, but of the whole idea that God would be anti-gay or anti-any human being. Dave Yudowitz and Rob Green play his archangels, Gabriel and Michael, respectively. Theyll be dressed to the nines in white suits and wings, he says, while God wears white robes and sneakers. The show was a hit on Broadway with Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) and then Sean Hayes (Will and Grace) playing God. The script, written by David Javerbaum, multiple Emmy-Award winning head writer on the original The Daily Show, jokes about everyone and everything, says Mr. Cintron Christians, Jews, Muslims, racists. The play was originally a series of Tweets (Life would make a lot more sense if you could hear the laugh track: @TheTweetofGod), and then a book, The Last Testament: A Memoir of God. Its possible people will come in and be uncomfortable, but if they stick it out, theyll see it all comes together in the end and its very funny, Mr. Cintron says. Its basically God telling them to believe in themselves, and in all the things they can do, that humanity can do. GODFrom page 1 An Act of God>> When: Nov. 17-Dec. 9 >> Where: Laboratory Theater of Florida, Fort Myers >> Cost: $23 for adults >> Info: 218-0418 or www.laboratorytheaterorida.com COURTESY PHOTOGod (Miguel Cintron) in the center, with his archangels Gabriel (Rob Green) on the left and Michael (David Yudowitz) on the rig ht.We decided to do an interview with Miguel Cintron in character. Because really, when would we ever get the opportunity again to interview God? Somebody call the Pulitzer Prize committee, because this is a major journalistic coup. This interview is, of course, edited for space, because thats what editors do. (If theyd had their way, they probably would have shortened the Bible too, at least that whole list of begats. Probably to make room for ads.) What is up? What is going on in the world today? Were all so scared. God: Its because people have in many ways, misconstrued what I said. They talk for Me, they pretend to talk for Me. They pretend they know what My mind is thinking. They misconstrue My words. And then they go out and commit all these terrible atrocities, and they think theyre doing it in My name, whether in the Muslim religion or the Christian religion, or any other religion that looks up to a higher power. The zealots, I would say. They try to pull me into arguments I have nothing to do with. Things like the gun debate. I have nothing to do with that. There is no God-given right to guns. Dont pull Me into that. Why did you decide to come up with 10 new commandments? God: Because I didnt want the old ones to completely define me. Ive written all these other things, and I didnt want the original ones to just define who I am. The first one still applies, though: Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. But in the new ones, the second is: Thou shalt not tell others who to fornicate. Its none of your business. Be with whomever you want to be with. Number three is: Thou shalt not kill in My name. Another one is: Thou shalt separate Me and state. God, with all thats going on with climate change and flooding, its scary. I dont understand, because after Noah, you promised youd never again destroy the world with another flood. God: I promised you I wouldnt do it, but I never promised you that you wouldnt do it. Why are we so messed up? God: I made you in My image, and maybe Im a little messed up, too. But I also gave you free will as well. Because youre all-seeing, is there anything that you especially like to watch? God: I like to watch plays. My favorite is Cabaret, the Kander and Ebb musical. And I love jazz music. I view overseeing the universe a lot like jazz music. Its all about the realities you dont create. So basically I like to go with the flow. There are a lot of things that are planned and foreseen, but I also like to go with the flow. Just like jazz music. If you know everything, does that mean we never surprise you? God: Thats what people dont understand about being omniscient. I dont know everything, but Im capable of knowing everything. But I can choose not to. I like to be surprised. Do we ever surprise you in good ways? God: Of course. You surprise Me with all of the ingenious things you do on your own. You have free will. You build rocket ships, communication networks. The things you come up with on your own, with some inspiration and guidance from your Heavenly Father! Youre able to take this free will, intelligence and talents Ive handed down to you and come up with some beautiful things. Why do you feel so far away sometimes? God: I dont know if I want to have a strong personal relationship with you as most would believe. I feel like perhaps there are too many people doing things in My name that people are getting the wrong idea of who God is, who I really am, and what My job is. Sometimes I want to step back and see what mankind is going to do. Ill come in and save everybody at the end, like I always do. What do you want from us? God: I want people to believe in themselves like they believe in Me. And love the people theyre around and respect the things that are tangible, the evidence thats around them. I want people to know that basically, belief and faith are no excuses for abandoning sound judgment. When I die, am I going to hang out with you? Are we g oing to have fun? God: Oh, yeah. Its going to be fun! BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com An interview with God

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 *Restrictions apply. See server for full details. COLLECTORS CORNER Try to serve up a helping of memories this Thanksgiving scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com I must be one of the most fortunate people anywhere. Half of my family is from the Midwest. The other half hails from Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. And miraculously, they all got along, especially when it came to sharing grandchildren and holidays. Add to that, food. I remember the food the squash casseroles and scalloped potatoes, all made with Velveeta, but heaven-sent nonetheless. Green bean casseroles, generally made with pole beans grown at local farms, and desserts of freshbaked pound cakes and prefab pumpkin pie. Turkey was the one constant at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sometimes, we brined it. Other years, we simply rubbed it with butter and sage. Occasionally, I would get fancy. I remember one holiday in which I stuffed the bird with apples and made gravy with Calvados, the French apple brandy. Grandma happily indulged herself that year, eating all of the Calvadossoaked apples. By that time, I had learned to check the top of the turkey for the offal bits I was used to finding them jammed in the turkeys rear, but one year, I found no neck, gizzard, heart or liver, so I shrugged and stuck the turkey in oven. When I went to carve the bird, I found them neatly tucked in a pouch above the breast. It was embarrassing then, but I can laugh at the memory now. Decades earlier, it was Aunt Cleos turn to bring the turkey. She got up early and roasted half a bird yes, it was split from stem to stern and brought it from Pahokee to Fort Myers. It looked pretty funny on the platter, but was Cleos way of being thrifty why cook more than necessary? She also tricked the family into eating oyster dressing everyone wondered why the dressing that year was so much richer than usual. Grandma always deemed Ocean Spray canned cranberry jelly to be sufficient, but Cleo made a wonderful relish of fresh cranberries, celery and pecans from the family farm. Im sure gelatin was a key ingredient, but in the palate of my mind, it was ambrosial. We served the meal on Grandmas Lenox china the set had been her mother-in-laws. I remember she fretted that the service for 12 had been divided when Grandma Bolender died in 1949. That meant she only had six dinner plates and had to set a second table with luncheon plates. To reduce the risk of breakage, only a couple of us were allowed to help wash and dry the dishes because the pattern had been discontinued and it was impossible at the time to find additional pieces. She would sigh as she recounted how her mother-in-law had entertained so elegantly and so effortlessly, and had died too young. Now, I have a service for 16 in the pattern, and I smile at the memory of Grandma, Cleo and the rest as I set the table and wash the dishes after a meal. Those rituals are so vital, and theyre something that is missed in a world of dishwashers and disposable plates. We need to take the time to thank the pot that cooked the meal, I remember reading somewhere. Theres a lot of truth in that. For me, there are few things more powerful than bonding over cooking or cleanup and pausing to remember the times spent. The food, the recipes and the rituals all remind me of the love I have shared. Bought: T he Chur ch Mouse, 378 S. County Road, Palm Beach; 561-659-2154. Paid: $10 apiece The Skinny: The markings on these Spode dinner plates suggest they date from the early 20th century. By the time these plates were made in England, flow-blue transferware had been popular with consumers for the better part of a century. To create these dishes, the design was stamped onto a piece of paper, which was applied to the pottery plate. After that, they would have been glazed and fired. On these dishes, the turkeys and greenery in the centers and the flowers around the border have been handpainted and fired again for durability. You can see the brushstrokes around the turkeys wattles. The dishes also have been used there are a few utensil marks here and there, but that only adds character, and were not just talking turkey. THE FIND:A set of five Spode Gadroonshape turkey platesSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYSeveral of these Spode turkey plates are impressed with an F above a 12, suggesting they were made in February 1912.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYCast of Gulfshore Playhouse Leading Ladies elevates farceIn Shakespeares time, men would play both the male and female roles. In Ken Ludwigs Leading Ladies, a pair of Shakespearean actors are once again pretending to be women but they do so in attempts to swindle a dying woman out of her money by claiming to be her long-lost nieces. The two men, Leo (Willam Connell) and Jack (Zach Martens) assume the identities of Maxine and Stephanie, respectively. Theyve been bumming around for 10 years, acting, but are still at rock bottom. If their scene at the local Moose lodge is any indication, we can understand why. The two have a sword fight while quoting a hodge-podge of lines from various Shakespearean plays. When they learn that a dying woman, Florence (Mary Stout) is looking for her relatives, Max and Steve, in order to leave them her millions but hasnt seen them since their childhood, they decide, out of desperation, to deceive her. But then, they learn that Max and Steve are actually Maxine and Stephanie. The lure of millions is too strong, and they pull a couple of dresses and wigs from their womens costumes. Leading Ladies is a souffl of a play light and fluffy, without a lot of substance but plenty of laughs. It is, perhaps, the perfect show for Gulfshore Playhouse to open its new season, after a rocky beginning. Hurricane Irma caused the venue to cancel its New Play Festival as well as its first play of the season. It has opened now, with Leading Ladies, rushing the opening a week early. (It runs through Dec. 10.) Its a farce, something frivolous, and just the type of thing we need after the horror of Irma and the craziness of the world at large. Its this cast of very able actors that put flesh on these characters and elevate the material. Mr. Connell and Mr. Martens play off of each other very well, and make well, not beautiful women, but humorous ones. Think of it this way: theyre not as ugly as Milton Berle in a dress, but not as beautiful and glamorous as RuPaul. Theyre maybe in the category of Some Like It Hot. Mr. Martens character, who is deaf and mute, looks like Harpo Marx with his curls and angelic face. He gestures wildly in made-up sign language. Mr. Connell is the dashing male lead who always gets the girl; as a woman, hes well, handsome. Their dresses? Wonderfully horrendous. Even in York, Pa., of 1958, no normal woman dressed like Cleopatra or Titania. Of course, there are complications. This is a farce. There are always complications. Erin Davie plays Meg, Florences other niece who will also inherit $1 million upon her death. Shes a good-natured, flamboyant woman who loves the theater. Unfortunately, shes engaged to Duncan (Phillip Taratula), a minister. Duncan is greedy, intolerable and analretentive. Plus, he looks like Beaker from the Muppets. He doesnt believe in engagement rings. He doesnt believe in honeymoons. What he does believe in is the millions Meg stands to receive. Hes horrified that her cut will be reduced by two-thirds when Max and Steve show up. Duncan has no sense of humor. And he hates the theater. Thats how you know hes a villain. Mr. Taratula plays him so perfectly you love to hate his character, waiting for his comeuppance. Ms. Stout, as the dying Aunt Florence, almost steals the show. She doesnt have a lot of scenes, but she sure makes the most of the ones she does have, bellowing her lines and bringing a fresh energy to the stage every time she appears, even though shes allegedly dying. She snaps out lines such as, Old: smart! Young: nitwit! while referring to her fellow characters, accompanying her pronouncements with a withering glare. Shes a powerhouse, a horror in pink, with white plastic-framed glasses. Doc (Mike Lawler), whos continually misdiagnosing Florence, is another great character actor in this production. Hes an adorable fumbler and mumbler. His young son, Butch, (Alex Michael Albrecht) is engaged to Audrey (Hanley Smith), a dumb blonde who wants to further her education. Ms. Smith plays against stereotype with this performance, and its wonderful to see a more three-dimensional character than how others might play her. She makes you realize that theres more there to her. There are some wonderful scenes: a group of them rehearsing Twelfth Night, with comically bad acting, men wooing Jack when hes dressed as Stephanie. And anything with Aunt Florence in it. At one point, during Act II on opening night, the actors actually broke character, unable to contain their own smiles and laughter at the action onstage. It was endearing. If youre up for something silly and light and frothy, Leading Ladies might just be what youre looking for.

The action and visual effects are top notch, and best of all its hilarious from start to finish. Rated PG-13.Wonderstruck 1/2(Julianne Moore, Millicent Simmonds, Oakes Fegley) In separate storylines set 50 years apart (1927 and 1957), deaf 12-year-olds (Simmonds and Fegley) in New York City search for what they feel their lives are missing. Strong performances, great visuals and masterful direction from Todd Haynes (Carol) make this one of the nicest and most fulfilling movie experiences of the year. Rated PG.Suburbicon 1/2(Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac) In a perfect 1950s American town, a home invasion kills Gardners (Damon) wife (Moore), leaving him with his son (Noah Jupe) and sister-inlaw (Moore again) to care for. Theres much more to the story that than, but it doesnt matter because nothing about this movie is in the least bit entertaining. Rated R. Breathe (Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Tom Hollander) Paralyzed in his prime from polio, Robin (Garfield) finds new meaning in his life thanks to his wife (Foy) and other loved ones. Garfield and Foy are strong as the leads, and its ultimately a hopeful story thats not as depressing as it looks. Rated PG-13. Happy Death Day 1/2(Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine) Sorority girl Tree (Rothe) is murdered, then relives the day until she can find the killer. Its illogical and lame, with few original ideas and plenty of logical gaps. Rated PG-13.Victoria & Abdul (Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Michael Gambon) The friendship between Queen Victoria (Dench) and an Indian servant (Fazal) late in her life is chronicled in director Stephen Frears latest. Its a bit scattered in terms of narrative tone, but overall the touching, symbiotic friendship is a welcome sight to see. Rated PG-13.American Made (Tom Cruise, Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright) Airline pilot Barry Seal (Cruise) is recruited by the CIA to take pictures over Central America, then becomes involved in drug and gun smuggling. Its a captivating story that will keep you rooting for the anti-hero, but it doesnt have the visual panache this kind of film should feature. Rated R.Only The Brave (Miles Teller, Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges) Firefighters in Arizona bond and battle wildfires in this dramatic true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Its not perfect, but its moving enough to do the real people justice. Rated PG-13. FILM CAPSULES

For more info visit CollierMuseums.com Sponsored in part by LATEST FILMSDaddys Home 2Is it worth $10? YesDaddys Home (2015) was a predictable lark of unfunny gags, faux machismo and pandering sweetness. To our surprise, Daddys Home 2 is just the opposite: The gags (except for one) dont play out the way we expect, the machismo is Mel Gibson-ed up to a new level and the pandering sweetness is Christmas-themed, which Im admittedly a sucker for. If youre looking for something fun to do to inspire holiday spirit with the family this year, look no further. At the start of director Sean Anders sequel, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Ferrell) have the co-dad thing down pat. Brad is still married to Dustys ex, Sara (Linda Cardellini), and together the three of them are raising Dusty and Saras kids, Dylan (Owen Vaccaro) and Megan (Scarlett Estevez). Theres no tension or awkwardness because they got that out of their system in the first movie. Also, Dusty is now married to Karen (Alessandra Ambrosio), who previously had daughter Adrianna (Didi Costine) with Roger (John Cena). Dusty understands the situation from all sides. After Megan complains of having to split her time on Christmas at two houses, the family decides to have Christmas together this year. Then Dusty gets a phone call: His father, Kurt (Gibson), is coming for the holidays, and hes a worse version of the insensitive, womanizing and unlikeable Dusty from the first movie. Add to this Brads father, the lovably chatty Don (John Lithgow), also coming to town, and you have a house full of wildly different personalities and craziness.If youre worried about not keeping all of the familial relationships straight, dont. In fact, you dont even have to see the loathsome first movie to enjoy this one, as everything is pretty self-explanatory, and more importantly, consistently funny. Some comedies telegraph their jokes long before they arrive, making the punch lines inevitable rather than surprising and humorous. With Daddys Home 2 the execution of the jokes comes in ways you dont expect. For example, in the opening moments Brad bends over to pick something up near a swing set, and theres a cut to the swing coming right at him. He swiftly moves out of the way. Good. The joke we knew was coming didnt come. Then out of nowhere, and with no way for us to expect it, a flying ball hits him in the face. Thats funny. The only bit that doesnt work is the one with the house lights, mostly because it feels forced and too outlandish. There are also lame plot points the film introduces and then skillfully avoids. At one point, Dylan asks Brad for advice on women and insists that Brad not tell Dusty. Lesser movies would have developed tension around the secretive nature of the scene, leading to a tedious payoff later. Thankfully, Dusty and Kurt overhear Brads terrible advice and Dusty is able too help. Then the pig Kurt takes it too far. Again, humor coming in the right places the right way. Its fascinating how Mr. Anders could have co-written and directed the original, which was so bad, and return in the same capacities for the sequel, which is so good. Credit to him for learning from his mistakes, because Daddys Home 2 is a winner. c e b a s m w dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> In case youre wondering: Scarlett Estevez does not appear to be related to actor/ director Emilio Estevez.Did you know?

But that doesnt prevent the group from spanning eras and musical styles, sometimes within the same track. The variety of Six Pack: Volume 3 is no accident, and in fact, was meant to reflect what Straight No Chaser tries to achieve any time the group performs or goes into the studio. Thats kind of what we try to do in our live shows, Steve Morgan, one of the groups nine vocalists said in a recent phone interview. Its what we try to do on our (full-length) albums. We want to have something there for everybody, so something new, something old. We never want to skew too young or too old. We want to give you a spectrum of things because ultimately I think the consistency is thats its a cappella. The consistency is the sound and trying to surprise people with what you can do without instruments. In the case of Six Pack: Volume 3, theres something truly retro in the 1962 version of the Sam Cooke, Twistin The Night Away, something new in the versions of Bruno Mars Thats What I Like, Jon Bellions All Time Low and a Beyonce Medley featuring Ms. Knowles hits Put a Ring on It and Crazy In Love. In addition to the R&B/hip-hop stylings of those songs, theres countrytinged pop in the rendition of Bonnie Tylers 0s hit, Total Eclipse of the Heart and pure pop in the groups mashup that brings together the Eurythmics s signature song Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) and Fitz and the Tantrums recent hit HandClap. As with all of the groups music, the songs on the new EP are rendered entirely with voices, as the nine members of Straight No Chaser harmonize, vocalize percussion and sing signature instrumental parts to the songs. The group began as a college project at Indiana University, with its 10 vocalists banding together under the Straight No Chaser name to perform around campus. For almost a decade, it looked like Straight No Chaser would remain strictly a college group. But then came a 10th anniversary of the original group in 2006. To generate enthusiasm for the occasion Straight No Chaser alum Randy Stine

It went viral and became 2007s most viewed video. One person who saw the clip was Craig Kallman, the chairman and CEO of Atlantic Records, who tracked down Stine and eventually signed the group. Todays lineup includes Stine, Morgan, Dave Roberts, Walter Chase, Jerome Collins, Michael Luginbill, Mechling, Tyler Trepp and Seggie Isho. The immediate future involves a tour that will have the group on the road right through the end of the year. The Nov. 17 show at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers falls right around the time Straight No Chaser may start to shift its set to include some Christmas tunes along with non-holiday material. In the past, thats normally how its been, Morgan said. We start putting in Christmas music right around a week or two before Thanksgiving, mixing those in. And then come the week after Thanksgiving, the whole second set is pretty much Christmas.

How would you play the hand? It may be tempting to finesse the queen of hearts, but this is demonstrably the wrong play and in the actual deal would prove fatal. Instead, you should go up with the ace, reasoning that if West has the king of hearts and has led the jack from a suit headed by the K-J-10, dummys queen will serve as a second stopper later on. And if East has the king, the queen is surely the wrong play. After rising with the ace, you should then attack clubs, forcing out the ace. In the actual deal, West has the ace, but he cannot harm you, whatever he returns. If he shifts to a spade, you win and take the diamond finesse. East has the king, but, whatever he leads next, you have nine tricks in the till. If West returns a heart after taking the ace of clubs, you are on perfectly safe ground. If he leads the ten of hearts, you cover it with the queen to establish a second heart trick with your nine; if he leads a lower heart instead of the ten, you follow low from dummy to accomplish the same result. For practical purposes, the contract can be guaranteed by going up with the ace of hearts at trick one. You assume from the opening lead that West has the ten of hearts, and that he also is the one with the heart length. If these suppositions are correct, nothing can stop you from making three no trump. The deal demonstrates once again that you dont take a finesse merely because its there.

I remember these words from my earliest days of team building exercises and I imagine many of you have participated in something similar. In order to build trust among a team, members are asked to stand with their back to their colleagues and perform a blindfolded free fall into their arms. You cant see them back there but you have to trust that they will catch you. You have to know they will have your back in both the exercise and the work that is to come for the team. The theme of this years Southwest Florida Community Foundations Annual Report to the community is Weve Got Your Back, Southwest Florida and I couldnt help but think of that trust building exercise. The Foundation wants to be a trusted resource and partner to our region and residents, someone you can count on when it comes to creating your vision for positive change, generosity and community involvement. In this report, you will see the impact YOU have helped create through establishing funds to guide your giving, supporting others in times of disaster and joining us in community initiatives like workforce transformation and attainable housing. You will also read about our record assets and strong investments, grants to empower nonprofits, and scholarships to assist students in completing college and certifications, as well as our community leadership work. Go ahead, fall back. Weve got you and we love working with you. Here we go OCIn Gratitude, Sarah OWENPresident & CEO Southwest Florida Community FoundationBuilding Trust to Create Change Were working with philanthropists to design different types of giving strategies ... always looking to the next chapter in philanthropy and giving. Sarah Owen, CEO and president of the Southwest Florida Community FoundationPHOTO BY BRIAN TIETZ The Southwest Florida Community Foundation has your back on all the causes you care about.Has someone ever told you, Ive got your back? Its a powerful statement of loyalty and support, knowing someone cares and is watching out for you. Think about a mother holding the arms of a toddler just taking his first step. Its a beginning to bigger things. If someone didnt have our back, would we dare to try something new? Test an idea? Pursue our big dreams? When someone has our back we become more courageous, more inspired and more inclined to step outside our comfort zone. We dare to face the unknown when we have support. Support can also be a catalyst for change. And it takes on many forms financial, emotional, social and physical. The Southwest Florida Community Foundations mission is to cultivate regional change for the common good and on any given day, were involved in got-your-back moments made possible by donors, partners, neighbors, nonprofits and businesses. For the longest time, the Community Foundation was primarily perceived as a granting and funding organization for nonprofit organizations and awarding scholarships to college-bound students. Its all a very important part of what we do. Our donors generosity makes that possible. Last SEE BACK, 4 NO MATTER THE NEED, WEVE GOTYOUR BACK

McFadden Jim Nathan Steve Pontius Karson Turneras of November 2017year we awarded $4.3 million in grants and scholarships plus nearly another $750,000 in programs and partner support, bringing our total investment in the region to $5.4 million. Weve found an effective way of granting funds through a competitive process that develops interagency collaboration and provides data-driven accountability. However, the Community Foundations back-watching goes much deeper than grantor and funder. Over the past year, weve responded to immediate needs, establishing relief funds to help those impacted by Hurricane Irma, the Club Blu shooting and the flooding in Bonita Springs, said Sarah Owen, president and CEO. Weve helped some of the largest employers in the region define their corporate philanthropy and as a backbone organizer we continue to bring together diverse groups around the FutureMakers Coalitions goal of transforming Southwest Floridas workforce. We have the willingness, resources, expertise and partnerships to drive change by convening and facilitating important conversations in the region, including access to affordable housing, workforce development and behavioral health care for children. A Bold New Future The next chapter is already taking shape in the historic neighborhood of downtown Fort Myers with the renovation of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad depot and the creation of a Regional Collaboratory & Tech Hub where ideas for social, economic and sustainable change will be born and fostered. The Collaboratory is a game-changer, Mrs. Owen said. What will be happening inside that building will lead to ideas, people and funding coming together to make social and economic change for our region. The renovated train station and a 15,000-square-foot addition designed and built to earn LEED Gold certification will be home to the foundations new regional offices and the Collaboratory, offering meeting and tenant spaces, social gathering and special events venues, and shared working and collaborations space all powered by state-of-the-art Florida LambdaRail broadband internet. The project was funded through a $10 million New Market Tax Credit deal which encourages economic development in distressed neighborhoods. Mrs. Owen hopes the Community Foundations use of New Market Tax Credits, will encourage nonprofits to take advantage of the financial tool. The Foundation has also signed a longterm lease with the city of Fort Myers for the Jackson Street depot. This is a true public-private partnership in which the city is not funding the entire infrastructure. Its a perfect example of impact investing by getting everyone at the table. Long-time community benefactors David and Linda Lucas successfully challenged the community to match their generous $2.5 million Collaboratory endowment, resulting in $5 million, not for infrastructure, furniture or office supplies, but for the transformational collaboration, community convening and philanthropic work that will take place on the 3-acre campus. We believe people coming together is one of the most powerful ways to strengthen our region, said Dr. Larry Hobbs, chairman of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation board of trustees, in announcing the endowment and matching gifts from 83 individuals. Collaboration works best when it evolves organically through conversation and working together. When people find themselves together theres an energy that just happens, said Mrs. Owen. What happens in the Collaboratory depends on you, the community. And we have great expectations. Beyond Granting and Funding During the past year, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation responded to immediate needs in the community, state and nation by increasing our number of emergency relief funds following Hurricanes Irma, Harvey, Maria and flooding in Bonita Springs. Our donors helped establish the funds which were also supported by caring citizens and businesses throughout the country. We were the portal for this global community that wanted to help. One hundred percent of the donations supported agencies working on the frontlines to assist the victims and to restore a degree of normalcy to individuals and families. By connecting our donors to community needs, we have helped many nonprofit programs such as the United Ways expansion of its 211 hotline to veterans programs and services to overcome challenges. The Community Foundation also worked with Hertz to provide disaster relief for its employees impacted by flooding in Louisiana and Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. We responded to the heartbreaking Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando and created a relief fund for another that hit too close to home the Club Blu shooting in Fort Myers. WINK TV sports reporter Bill Halter, who knew one of the victims, Lehigh Senior High basketball player Stefan Strawder, felt he had to act after the random shooting which also killed Sean Archilles, 14. I had to do something about it, he said.Mr. Halter promoted the Foundations Together Fort Myers Fund, urging the community to donate and conducted fundraising at local bars. Supporting New Ideas, Challenges During the last year, the Community Foundation helped philanthropists start 43 new funds, many identifying emerging challenges and earmarked for specific causes. The Land of Opportunity Fund provided support for immigration legal services and the El Camino webpage helping to foster a path toward legal permanent residency for immigrants and a five-county collaboration of supporting nonprofit representation. We helped Foundation fund holder Bob Martin establish Bridge to a Cure upon learning his granddaughter was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. By letting us handle the administrative tasks, serving as the nonprofit for his fundraising and granting, Mr. Martin can focus on his mission of providing children with lifesustaining treatments until a cure is found. What the community foundation has done in terms of effort and support has been outstanding, he said. The convenience and benefit appear endless. Support Jobs, Educational Initiatives As the backbone organization for the FutureMakers Coalition, the Community Foundation has the regions back in developing a qualified workforce for well-paying jobs now and in the future. This past year, more partner organizations joined the conversation and one of the coalitions efforts to fill long-vacant positions for certified nursing assistants have been highly successful and is a replicable program for other in-demand jobs. One of our grants $45,000 to pay the salary of an instructor at the Clewiston Industrial Mechanics model has resulted in a 100-percent success rate for the inaugural class of nine. Im really pleased with the results, said Mike Swindle, director of workforce development who fully expects the program to be funded by the Florida Department of Education based on the success and reportable data. The mechanics program is a great example of educators talking to local businesses and identifying a need, Mrs. Owen said. Mike discovered there were a lot of job openings for farm and industrial mechanics and developed a solution that is helping to address Hendrys high unemployment and poverty levels. Residents of the Gulf Harbor community in Fort Myers and its yacht club have long supported AMIkids Southwest Florida, a program designed to break the cycle of failure and poverty for high-risk kids often in trouble at school or with the law. Annual dinners and auction events raise money for scholarships, a donoradvised fund and endowment overseen by the Community Foundation. The Foundation gives us somewhere to put our money with someone to manage it, said long-time AMI supporter Craig Anderson. We dont have to form a nonprofit and they oversee the fiduciary responsibilities. The Community Foundation also assisted the Shadow Wood Country Club Foundation establish a multi-year scholarship program for employees and their children of the Bonita Springs club. We support eight charities and have talked about offering a scholarship program for a while, said resident Chet Hobert. The Community Foundation was wonderful in helping us get it off the ground. We kicked off the scholarship program last year with the Foundations great assistance. By working with us, the scholarships were a tax deduction for the Shadow Wood foundation but not considered a taxable gift for recipients. Leadership for Philanthropists Fort Myers-based Chicos FAS enlisted the Community Foundation in spring 2017 for advice in relaunching its national and regional corporate giving strategy. We wanted a strategic approach that aligned with our customers and the companys goals, said Jessica Wells, principal, corporate giving. Sarah and her team helped guide us through the process of how we think about local giving and ensure we are supporting the organizations and events that tie into our philanthropic mission as a company. It was a philosophic conversation, as well, said Ms. Wells. They offered us an outside perspective of why companies need to have a sense of purpose and community and gave us the tools to look at executive involvement by aligning executives passions with local organizations. It was a holistic approach to corporate giving and philanthropy. Our Many Meaningful Purposes Having Southwest Floridas back requires some multitasking. At times the Community Foundation is the traditional grantor and funder. Other times were bringing together people for meaningful, status quo-changing conversations. As stewards of the social, economic and environmental fabric of the region, were dedicated to finding out what its going to take to make meaningful change and to keep going until we get there. I like to think of it this way: We cant be one single thing because one single thing has never been able to solve a problem, said Mrs. Owen. We cant do it by ourselves but we can through collaboration. O CFROM PAGE 1WELLS HOBBS SWINDLE

Damian R.A: "Nashville" will indeed return to TNT this coming January for its sixth season (no exact date as yet). And don't forget, if you don't have TNT, you can catch each new episode of the show the day after air on Hulu. I also have some casting news: Josh Stamberg has been cast in the recurring role of Darius, the extremely charismatic founder of a self-actualization movement that has transformed many lives. Also, musician/songwriter and acting newcomer Jake Etheridge has been cast in the recurring role of Sean, who is a recent military veteran suffering from severe PTSD who has yet to embrace his talent and passion for music. Also of note, in season five, Jake co-wrote six songs featured on the show, including "Burn to Dark" and "As the Crow Flies." Rainee Lyleson has been cast in the recurring role of Alannah, a beautiful singer-songwriter who starts out as a backup singer but soon will be discovered for the star she is meant to be. Nic Luken has been cast in the recurring role of Jonah Ford. Jonah is a famous male pop star who's handsome, extremely confident and charming, exuding all the qualities of a superstar. And finally, Dylan Arnold has been cast in the recurring role of Twig, a childhood friend/entourage member to Jonah. Twig navigates this lifestyle by guarding his anxiety and pain with a caustic, brilliant sense of humor. Q: Now that "The Catch" has been canceled, can you tell me what Mireille Enos is up to? Christina M., via FacebookA: Mireille has been cast as War, one the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, in Neil Gaiman's upcoming television adaptation of his novel "Good Omens." There's a boatload of talent already on board for this project, including Michael Sheen, David Tennant and Jon Hamm. The series, which is now shooting in the U.K., is set for a 2019 premiere on Amazon Prime. The versatile actress also is filming the HBO movie "My Dinner with Herve," with Peter Dinklage, Jamie Dornan, David Strathairn and Andy Garcia. Peter portrays Herve Villechaize, co-star of "Fantasy Island," the hit fantasy/drama series that ran on ABC from 1977 to 1984. Mireille plays Kathy Self, Herve's longtime girlfriend.

But the ultimate perk of Florida winter is being able to dine outside. In January. With little more than a sweater to ward off a chill. Its why even restaurants that arent on the water figure out a way to cluster some table outside. In places like Old Naples, downtown Fort Myers and Punta Gorda, sidewalk tables afford great spot from which to people watch while dining. At the beaches, there are spectacular water views, often with sunset vistas as a bonus. And just in case the air gets a bit brisk, most establishments have outdoor heaters to keep you toasty. That said, its always a good idea to take a sweater with you. Here are four of my favorite spots for dining al fresco. NaplesWhen it comes to a restaurant in which the view and the food are both memorable, M Waterfront Grille has few peers. This Naples favorite offers a stunning view of Venetian Bay along with excellent food and exceptional service. And as if thats not enough, the wine list is exemplary as well. The management describes the cuisine as cuttingedge continental a term coined by former executive chef Brian Roland and still used by current chef John Berry. What that means is food that isnt fussy but is fresh and carefully composed. The kitchen makes its own b utter a nd you may be tempted to make a meal of the bread as a result. Fresh fish selections and steaks are expertly executed but vegetables get their due as well. Try to save some room for dessert as these are all house-made and superb as well.

C30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBoca Grandes grand dameThe Gasparilla Inn is ready for its 104th season BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@ oridaweekly.comWith a storied history including notable visitors like Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Katharine Hepburn and the George H.W. Bush family, Gasparilla Inn & Club opened its door for its 104th season this fall. We are thrilled to welcome guests back for another memorable season, said Jon Reecher, general manager of The Gasparilla Inn & Club in Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. Our new guests discover the gracious hospitality and gentility of our resort whether they seek an unforgettable golfing experience or a relaxing getaway at our beautiful Beach Club. A member of Historic Hotels of America and listed on The National Register of Historic Places, the grand resort offers 142 accommodations in the heart of Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island, between Sarasota and Fort Myers on the Gulf of Mexico. Anytime is a good time to go, but the holidays Thanksgiving and Christmas offer special events to make a vacation even more appealing. A special turkey dinner on Nov. 23 is always a hit; and in December, the inn will host its annual Twelve Days of Christmas package. Besides typical resort activities, guests will be treated to Old World hospitality and festive merriment as they prepare for the arrival of Santa. Festive activities include gingerbread house decorating, tree-trimming for kids, Christmas caroling and even Christmas Eve in The Living Room of the inn, complete with milk and cookies. Damage from Hurricane Irma was minimal, Mr. Reecher said. We had some trees down, lost some shingles on cottage roofs, some siding here and there, but in general, we were really lucky. The island has 2,400 households, 600 year-round residents, and during peak season the population swells to 5,000. Part of the Boca Grandes charm is that there are no traffic lights and no chain restaurants. Dont look for a McDonalds here! And at the inn itself, a very civilized resort, expect a dress code during the social season, Dec. 21 through March 31. No jeans or shorts in the dining room after 6 p.m., and men are required to wear a jacket. Fishing is hugely popular. Anglers find themselves reeling in redfish and trout, and in Charlotte Harbor, tarpon. In fact, Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande Pass are often referred to as the Tarpon Capital of the World. Bridge is king at the resort. There are large groups that will get together and bring in an expert and play for three or four days straight, Mr. Reecher said. The Pete Dye 18-hole championship course on pretty Charlotte Harbor keeps golfers happy and challenged, and a daytrip to the two-story, circa-1890 lighthouse and museum that explores the islands fishing and railroad heritage is always a good bet. But the island has another lighthouse called Gasparilla Island Range Tower Light, too. Both are open to the public. Guests never have to travel far for good food. The inn has four restaurants, including the popular Pink Elephant downtown, and a lounge. New in the past few years is The Inn Bakery (downtown). If you go, be sure to order a doughnut (or a dozen). We recommend one topped with a citrus glaze. Mr. Reecher agrees: Its the best doughnut youll find in Florida. The Gasparilla Inn & Club, 500 Palm Ave., Boca Grande, 800-996-1913 or 941-9642201, www.gasparillainn.com. Resort offers 142 accommodations in a pristine environment in the heart of Boca Grande, located on Gasparilla Island. Special seasonal offers: Thanksgiving package, good Nov. 21-26, has rates starting at $285 a night and includes deluxe room and a host of special activities for guests of all ages: sand sculpting, beach games, teddy bear tea parties, a family-fun football game, Inn Bingo, The Inns optional famous Thanksgiving dinner and more. Optional meal plans are available upon request. 12 Days of Christmas package, good Dec. 20-Jan. 1, includes deluxe room and a host of special holiday activities that include: Christmas caroling, gingerbread house decorating, beach games, sand sculpting, Inn Bingo, a countdown to the New Year in BZs and more. Optional meal plans are available upon request. The Gasparilla Inn & Club offers 142 accommodations in the Heart of Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. The Pete Dye 18-hold golf course offers fairways with a view of Charlotte Harbor. Try a citrus-glazed doughnut at The Inn Bakery. Guests can relax at a pool or join in bridge. AM PM AM PM

C36 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE NEWSAnyone else out there who doesnt feel inspired to slave for days in a kitchen to serve the most commercially mutated and flavorless bird on the market? You have a few options, but only two are appealing. First, you can suck it up and martyr yourself for the sake of family tradition. This is a terrible option and the one us turkey-haters are most likely to take. The second is to pay professionals to use all their expertise and fancy equipment to make a belligerent and aggressively stupid bird palatable for your family (well get to that in a minute) and the third is to simply serve something else. There are many other festive and labor-intensive holiday options that are worth the hassle so much more than turkey, like crown roast of lamb or beef wellington. Duck or goose are exponentially more flavorful poultry options than turkey because they arent bred to over-deliver lean white meat, and who wouldnt want to collect the rendered fat for an amazing potato side? If youre interested in options for your Thanksgiving meal, weve provided a recipe for inspiration and information on several local establishments who are aching to cook (and clean!) for you on Turkey Day. Ingredients 2 5-pound whole Pekin ducks 2 large onions, quartered 1 bunch large rosemary, divided Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 3 pounds small Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled 2 pints fresh black Mission or Turkish figs, halved Recipe preparation Preheat oven to 425. Set ducks, breast side down, on a work surface and score fatty areas along backs and thighs with a paring knife, being careful not to cut into flesh. Turn over and score fat, concentrating mainly on breasts but extending to tops of legs. Poke a few holes around extra-fatty areas of cavity. Stuff ducks with onions and all but 4 sprigs rosemary; season generously with salt and pepper (much of the seasoning will melt away as the fat renders). Place ducks, breast side down, in a large roasting pan; pour in cup water. Roast, rotating pan occasionally, until duck fat starts to render, water is evaporated, and skin is golden brown, about 40 minutes. Remove pan from oven and transfer ducks to a platter or baking dish. Carefully pour rendered fat into a heatproof measuring cup. Toss potatoes and cup duck fat in roasting pan (save remaining fat for another use); season with salt and pepper. Scoot potatoes to perimeter and return ducks to pan, breast side up. Roast until potatoes and dark meat are tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted into breasts registers 155, 50 minutes. Transfer ducks to a cutting board; let rest at least 10 minutes before carving. Meanwhile, add figs and remaining 4 rosemary sprigs to pan; toss well. Roast until figs are soft and juicy, 5 minutes. Serve duck with figs and potatoes.Restaurants serving Thanksgiving feasts: Real Macaw, 3275 Bayshore Drive: Family-style dinner from 4-8 p.m. with items like b utternut squash soup, stuffed turkey, lamb shank and honeynut glazed rum salmon with a selection of traditional sides, desserts and wines. $39 for adults, $12 for children.

When Angelinas Ristorante opened in April 2008, it unquestionably raised the bar for Italian cuisine in Southwest Florida. Other Italian innovators have followed yet none can compare to the complete dining experience here: food that honors yet elevates Italian ingredients and flavors; an award-winning wine program; elegant, sprawling dining rooms; and a highly trained service staff eager to accommodate and enlighten diners. Its worth indulging in both the primo course of small pasta portions and the secondo of heartier entrees; the handmade pastas are so sheer that they wont leave you too full for such stellar entrees as scallops paired with slowly roasted pork belly or classics such as veal Marsala. Angelinas is still in a class by itself. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2016 Another Broken Egg Caf, 670 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 300-0696. While Another Egg offers traditional items, theres lots of unusual fare, too. Crab cakes topped with poached eggs and Andouille-infused Hollandaise, for example. Omelets with lobsters and Brie and even some breakfast appetizers. I can personally attest to the deliciousness of the Baked Brie Delight a slab of warm cheese served with apples, raisins and pecans lightly sauted in Grand Marnier butter sauce paired with toasted French bread. Other winners were a large bowl of house-made granola, fruit and quinoa with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, coconut and vanilla Greek yogurt; the Bacquezo, an omelet with cream cheese, bacon, chorizo, Monterey Jack and green onions; and the Hey Lucy! omelet with chorizo, sauted onions, green chiles and cheddar. A Belgian waffle and gluten-free pancakes were top-notch as well. A bonus: The staff is uniformly welcoming and efficient. Lunch served, too. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Flacos Mexican Specialties & Steak House, 2371 Vanderbilt Beach Road; Naples; 431-8733. This long-time purveyor of Mexican fare recently relocated to spacious new digs at the Shoppes at Vanderbilt. While the space is large and bright, its also extremely noisy. Mercifully theres an outside patio for those who need a more tranquil setting. The menu remains wide ranging, with an array of combo dishes as well as ceviche, mole and other Mexican favorites. Zesty salsa came with fresh chips as soon as we arrived. The ceviche and drunken shrimp appetizers, however, could have used some more heat. A cheese enchilada and beef burrito combo was a good choice while the seafood taco turned soggy when combined with a chicken enchilada with green tomatillo sauce. A gluten-free cake made of nuts with chocolate icing and Nutella was a good finish to the meal. Service was on the brusque side throughout the meal, giving us the impression that we should eat up and move on. Full bar.

Born in Northern India, he brings his well-developed talents for art and cooking to this elegant and innovative newcomer where youll find some of the standards as well as intriguing offerings such as lobster mulligatawny soup, dumpukhy goat biryani and jhinga prawns. The ghehra paani diver scallops were plump and delicious atop a mound of black lentils with orange tomato jus and yellow pepper coulis. Palawaka chaat consisted of crisp fried baby spinach leaves intermingled with dates, tamarind and yogurt. A trio of baby lamb chops were moist and seasoned with a touch of mint and mustard.

Never mind the somewhat drab exterior. Theres valet parking and a thoughtful staff whose aim is to ensure guests have a great evening. Booths are most distant from the band so you might land one if you want it. Most people the night of our visit were more interested in proximity to the band and dance floor. There are no surprises on the menu, but the New England-themed seafood menu is solid with lots of choices for meat and seafood lovers. Salads were fresh and the New England clam chowder was laden with clams and potatoes. A surf and turf special included a tasty one-pound lobster, corn on the cob and a big baked potato along with the steak, which needed more seasoning. Both the wine list (bottle and glass) and cocktail menu contained a wealth of choices. And the band played almost the whole time we were there.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-22, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C39 CUISINEPre-Thanksgiving Farm City BBQ tradition heads to Cambier Park SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Farm City BBQ of Collier County moves to Cambier Park in downtown Naples for 2017. Hosted by the Marine Industries Association of Collier County and with deep roots in the local business and agricultural communities, the 62nd annual feast is set for 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22. Over the years the pre-Thanksgiving tradition has raised more than $300,000 for nonprofit organizations that benefit local youth leadership development programs. The National Farm City Council was formed 62 years ago in an effort to help bring together business and agricultural communities. Their goal was to demonstrate the interdependence of a vibrant network of farmers and business owners that help support the economy and provide the basic essentials that every citizen needs. From the truck driver to the rancher, the fisherman, the futures broker and the biotechnology scientist, they all play an important role in making sure that Americans have access to a healthy and abundant supply of food. In Collier County, the Farm City BBQ was formed in a similar way. Event volunteers remember when area farmers had a bad year of crops. The business leaders reached out to the farmers, inviting them for a barbecue and sharing in the little produce that was available so that their families wouldnt go hungry on Thanksgiving Day. A year later, the Immokalee farming community wanted to reciprocate the hospitality, so they invited the business leaders for a BBQ in the country. Since then, the event has rotated from city to country locations; last years site was Seminole Immokalee Casino, and the year before was Naples Municipal Airport. Beneficiaries of the 2017 barbecue are the Collier County 4-H Association, Youth Leadership Collier, the Collier County Junior Deputies League and Key Club International. About the beneficiaries The Collier County 4-H reaches more than 7,600 students every year. In addition to participating in traditional agricultural programs, Collier County 4-Hers learn how to build and program robots, create maps using drones, write and deliver speeches and become leaders through numerous other hands-on experiences. Programs take place in Collier County Public Schools during the school day, in after school settings and in traditional 4-H clubs throughout the community. Youth Leadership Collier, a summer program of the Leadership Collier Foundation, empowers high school students to become leaders, showcases Collier County through field work with key organizations and encourages students to come back to (or stay in) Collier County to begin their begin careers and civic involvement. Farm City BBQ proceeds help keep YLC tuition accessible to all qualified candidates regardless of socioeconomic background. In cooperation with the Collier County Sheriffs Office, the Collier County Junior Deputies League helps prepare local youth to become responsible, lawabiding citizens. The leagues 34-acre site in eastern Collier County is used for youth activities throughout the year, and plans are underway to add a pavilion, camp centers with restrooms, six campsites with fire rings and a fishing dock to expand programs for Collier youth. Twelve Collier County high school Key Clubs provide more than 600 members with opportunities to perform community service and be mentored in leadership, communication and other vital development skills. Funds from Farm City BBQ help send students to the annual District Leadership & Education Conference in Orlando. The 2017 Farm City BBQ >> What: Steaks from Shulas Naples, the traditional Immokalee Salad and corn provided by Lipmans, baked beans from Russells Clambakes, complimentary beer, wine and soda >> When: 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22 >> Where: Cambier Park >> Cost: $20 >> Tickets and more info: www.FarmCityBBQ.com Take a chanceThe Leadership Collier Foundation sells raf e tickets every year at the Farm City BBQ to raise money for local youth programs.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY2 GROWTH NOVEMBER 15-16, 2017 ASPECIALREPORT GROWTH BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com South Florida, he said. Thats not good for the eco-system, obviously. And its not good for property owners and taxpayers now, or Floridians in the not-so-distant future. This week, Florida Weekly offers readers a sobering panorama of sometimes shortsighted environmental and urban planning that will inevitably lead to profound community challenges throughout Florida in the next few decades. Those challenges those now apparently inescapable difficulties stem from man-made environments in real estate and agriculture, and the influence of humans on climate. Nearly all growth planning in the Sunshine State begins with water; if done foolishly or unwillingly, it may end with water, too. Only time and perhaps the Florida leaders voters choose in 2018 or 2020, and beyond are likely to tell. TROUBLEFrom page 1But the regulations, based on growth planning, more or less succeeded, in the eyes of those who were there to see it happen at the beginnings of their careers. Now many of them are still fighting near the ends of their careers fighting to make growth work by saving the environment. It cant be done any other way, they say, and that means not everybody can get rich whenever and wherever they want to. This is their story the story of a decades-long planning fight. In the eyes of Wayne Daltry, a retired planner and former Smart Growth director in Lee County who worked to harness a regional vision that would help everybody, the planning history started a long time ago with the Calusa Indians, who built the first canal on the west coast of Florida across Pine Island, connecting Charlotte Harbor on the islands west side with the mangrove-mottled waters on the east, not far from the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River. The canal allowed them quicker and much easier access to the mainland and inland upriver. The earth-scrape of its western terminus arguably the first real example of transportation planning and man-made alterations of natural water systems in the lower Florida peninsula is still visible to any visitor in a little thumbprint of a park at Pineland, complete with a commemorative sign. Although it offers only the tiniest hint of what would come, nearly every aspiration of Floridians, Indian or European, from the 15th through the 20th centuries and beyond seems to lie in that shallow Pine Island trough. When the Calusa were doing their planning and engineering, Mr. Daltry said, Dr. Robin Brown (a retired medical doctor and expert in the Calusa civilization) estimated the population to be 40,000. Their kingdom stretched across Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties, and at least as far to the east as Lake Okeechobee. After the Spanish arrived five centuries ago, the Calusa population dropped to roughly 1,000; ultimately, they disappeared from the planet. Not until the advent of World War II did the population of the southwest coast regain the 40,000 mark. Then the Americans moved in suddenly, not just as scrappy pioneers or Crackers, but as military personnel preparing for war. And now climate change is here with the Americans, pounding on the door, but not only climate change: Floridians also face the consequences of reconfiguring land and water systems beginning in the 1880s in Florida in ways that might have horrified the Calusa. The energetic new Floridians completely altered a Florida environment at once low-lying, porous, subtropical and wet across a vast block of the southern peninsula stretching roughly 200 miles south from near Orlando across Lake Okeechobee to Florida Bay, and roughly 120 miles west from Palm Beach to Fort Myers or Naples. The contemporary face of the Sunshine State grew in large part from a day in 1881 when Philadelphia industrialist Hamilton Disston purchased 4 million acres of southcentral Florida for 25 cents an acre said to be the single largest land purchase in history. Although it didnt happen in his lifetime, Disstons massive move ultimately led to a growth explosion: to the draining of the Kissimmee basin and straightening of the river north of Lake O; to the connection of the lake with both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean; to railroads created by Henry Flagler and other development that brought more people; and finally to contemporary Florida. Only within the last 150 years, since the height of the Industrial Revolution in Europe and America, have humans significantly reshaped the geology and hydrology of Florida and, almost without recognizing it until recent years, changed the climate of the world, the continent, the country and the Sunshine State. Disston was the Sunshine State spearhead of those people and those changes. They did it for profit by accommodating cities, towns, suburbs, sub-suburbs, and fields for citrus, vegetable crops, sugar cane and both dairy and beef cattle. Almost incidentally, their profit planning resulted in the loss of an Everglades so profoundly rich and lustrous that now its almost hard to imagine and at less than half the size of its once grand north-to-south stretch, it never can be regained, says Michael Grunwald. He described it this way in his widely celebrated 2007 book, The Swamp: The Everglades was the only place on earth where alligators (broad snout, fresh water, darker skin) and crocodiles (pointy snout, salt water, toothy grin) lived side by side. It was the only home of the Everglades mink, Okeechobee gourd, and Big Cypress fox squirrel. It had carnivorous plants, amphibious birds, oysters that grew on trees, cacti that grew in water, lizards that changed colors, and fish that changed genders. It had 1,100 species of trees and plants, 350 birds, and 52 varieties of porcelain-smooth, candystriped tree snails. It had bottlenose dolphins, marsh rabbits, ghost orchids, moray eels, bald eagles, and countless other species that didnt seem to belong on the same continent, much less in the same ecosystem.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com NOVEMBER 15-16, 2017 GROWTH 3 ASPECIALREPORT GROWTHplatting bandwagon, either as buyers of tiny lots or as sellers of huge expanses of tiny lots, Mr. Daltry explained. For Southwest Florida, platting land was like placer mining for gold: You struck it rich or you went busted. In the mid-to-late 1950s, before most communities ever heard of growth management planning, the big-money developers arrived. The contemporary face of Florida emerged suddenly, equipped with mosquito control using the now banned DDT, and with affordable air conditioning, both of which hit the Florida scene about 1960 or a year or two earlier. The dream (of these developers) was to exceed the usual platting of a few acres, or even a few square miles, Mr. Daltry said. Instead, they platted vast tracts of land and sold them to northerners on the installment plan. Cape Haze, Cape Coral, Port Charlotte and North Port, Port Labelle, Golden Gates Estates, Remuda Ranch, Lehigh Acres, Deltona at Marco, all gave promise of land, water, and exclusivity at a small down payment and small monthly installments for a set period of time. For example, $10 down and $10 a month, for 10 years, was an offer that became an advertising jingle. For $100 an acre, a platter could buy land from a lumber company, divide each acre into 4 lots and ulimately gross $4,800 (minus some labor and machine costs) if he put in a street and drainage, explained Mr. Daltry and creating those lots also created a lot of jobs, the bottom line in any planning in those days. Perhaps its true: The more things change, the more they remain the same. Once again more than half-a-century later, jobs and the economy are the primary reasons cited by Gov. Rick Scotts administration and many county commissions for expanding development with less regulation. Its jobs, more jobs, they say. Its good for the economy, a weather-worn phrase that has echoed almost unquestioned across the decades. Those backhoes, and those sales pitches, and those resort hotel rooms (for speculating visitors) created jobs, said Mr. Daltry. From local governments, there was no immediate demand or much interest in regulatory controls. Heck, the counties werent even authorized to regulate without a special act of the legislature. By 1960, the population of Collier, Lee and Charlotte Counties combined was 82,000. In gigantic Palm Beach County with its 1,972 square miles, the western portion remained predominantly agricultural, some of it in the Everglades Agricultural Area; but the eastern half had begun to develop like a tropical storm, serving as home to 228,000 residents. By 1970, the population of the southwest coast was 170,000 and of Palm Beach County, 349,000; local governments then had the power, from the legislature, to do some regulating and controlling if they wanted to. And they began to. Too many septic tanks discharging poorly, too much road congestion, too much flooding, too many homes and their wreckage blocking beaches, and too much land clearing, Mr. Daltry said, explaining the inclination to regulate, even a little.Changes blowing in the windAbout that time Mr. Daltry, a newly minted graduate of The Citadel, was going to Vietnam, before coming home to Bradenton and embarking on a career as a planner. And counties were beginning to demand change across the state. Gov. Reubin Askew, after his election in 1970, took the problem seriously and established the Task Force on Resource Management to look at it, Mr. Daltry recalled. Thus were born modern times. The commission developed a set of recommendations, the most memorable being demanding a serious set of coordinated state, regional and local planning programs (they included land use, transportation and public services); an environmental land management program; an air and water quality management program; a coastal management program; and a statewide system of water management. Then and now, these are the core issues for communities, and they create a sense of regional and state identity. Ray Judah, Lee Countys first environmental planner who went on to serve as a commissioner for 24 years, helped create major environmental protections of water and land in the county. He described three governors Reubin Askew, Lawton Chiles and Bob Graham as true visionaries. They understood in planning for the future that were a high-volume growth state. Thankfully those three gentlemen helped form the landmark growth management laws that were beneficial for decades. Developers themselves were not always the problem, as Jim Beever remembers it. A longtime county planner who arrived in the mid-1980s, Mr. Beever is now senior planner at the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council, created to analyze the effects of new development across a six-county region from Sarasota south. Development changed because of the states Growth Management Plan (1975), which improved to the State and Regional Planning Act of 1984, which was a big watershed. The requirements for concurrency were improved, he said. Mandated by the state Legislature at the time, concurrency required county governments and planners to produce County Comprehensive Plans and update them every five years, showing what had changed and how their goals might therefore change. Levels of service had to be met, said Mr. Beever, with parks, with fire and police protection and schools. Local governments could do more than the bottom line and some did they set their goals higher, to make a better standard of living. This occurred from Sarasota to Naples. Almost nobody thought the state was spiraling out of control not the planners, at least. So it looked like we were on a good track we had a good rate of growth, we were prepared or preparing for what was coming, and agriculture was still doing well, explained Mr. Beever. He was sitting in a small suite of offices filled with maps and planning charts at the heart of an aging outdoor shopping and commercial center in Fort Myers, where shop-front glass windows, some with for-lease signs in their corners, peer out on pools of water and mechanical fountains flanked by narrow walkways. Some developers embraced these ideas a compact urban core, some areas set aside for agriculture and some for preserves but not all, Mr. Beever said. While those approaches were good for almost everybody, we did have resistance from what I call speculative real estate, as opposed to real real estate. The difference is significant, in Mr. Beevers view. Existing, legitimate, ongoing real estate development is a good thing. But speculative real estate goes like this. A speculator One: finds land for the least possible price. Two: obtains permits to do the most possible development on that land. And three: then lets the public pay for the infrastructure. Such an approach occurred on a large scale in such communities as Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres and Golden Gate, for example, with such companies as the Gulf American Corp., the General Development Corp. in Charlotte County and the Mackle Brothers on Marco Island. There, taxpayers have to retrofit the infrastructure, Mr. Beever said. They used finger canals to promise everyone waterfront. And once built, you have no finances to support services. To a large extent, communities in those places had to play catch-up. But with such companies as WCI in Pelican Bay or Bonita Bay Properties, the infrastructure was done in advance, and the companies had to recoup the money they spent doing it, he said. That was doing it the right way. The regulations were challenged in increasingly sophisticated or forceful ways, planners say but often they held up in court.How it looked on the groundSome people experienced Floridas planning and growth struggles from a boots-on-the-ground perspective or boots in the mangrove swamp, in the case of Rae Ann Wessel. Ms. Wessel started with what was then called the Department of Environmental Regulations. Now 39 years later a voluble apologist for water, mangroves and wetlands with a still-scrappy willingness and the fitness to wade into the political or geographical swamp, either one shes the natural resource policy director for the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation. I cut my teeth chasing Robert Troutman out of the mangroves, in the corridor known as the estuary development (near Punta Rassa), 7,000 acres where the Kennedy-Shriver Trust had bought cheap land in the 1950s and s and designed a building plan, she said. They were going to name it after something they were about to destroy. Such naming characterized Florida development for half a century or more: Gray Oaks, Bonita Bay, Quail West, Twin Eagles, Pelican Preserve, Garden Oaks, Gardenia Islas, Magnolia Bay, Sandpiper Cove, Wildcat Run and scores more.VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYFormer Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah, helped create major environmentl protections for Florida waters.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY4 GROWTH NOVEMBER 15-16, 2017 ASPECIALREPORT GROWTHSo we took it to the state Supreme Court and won a landmark case. For the first time, the state could claim jurisdiction above the mean high-water line because of plants and soils that were biologically tied in as buffer areas the mangrove areas, the (brackish) areas. Her visit to the Supreme Court, probably a wondrous adventure to a young environmentalist working for state government, proved to be far from the end of that fight, or of a larger one on-going across the region, the state and the decades, she said. So the Kennedy-Shriver Trust hired Robert Troutman, an Atlanta attorney who managed the lands. He was very unhappy when the Florida Supreme Court identified these lands as being jurisdictional. This landmark decision allowed us for the first time to identify critical wetlands above the mean high tide line and protect them. Everything we understand about mangroves today was codified in that decision. Mr. Troutman didnt like it, and he was a man of action, apparently. He was outraged, Ms. Wessel recalled. He made a commitment to cut down all the mangroves they owned, and he made it to my face. It happened during a hard rain when I gave him a ride in my car to his thats when he told me. He was going to cut them all down. He wasnt kidding. I had an old green Valiant the state issued. So I parked and walked up to the site one day, and Troutman was out there with some work guys, and he had a chain saw in his hand. They were cutting mangroves, but they couldnt hear me coming up in the muck with those saws going. Since the DER had injunctions against the trust, she began to take pictures. Of the trusts Atlanta attorney wielding the chain saw with the goods, as she put it. And when they paused and the sound went down, I called out. Hey, Robert! Mr. Troutman took off running. He ran down through one of the ditches and ended up over by Punta Rassa, where a guy was fixing crab traps. When she drove over, saw the fisherman, and asked if hed seen anybody, the man looked surprised, she remembered. He said, Yeah, this old man just jumped out of the woods That was about 1974, the year before current Lee County Commissioner Frank Mann first put his boots on the ground of the state legislature in Tallahassee, to which he was elected by local voters in 1975. Reubin Askew was still governor, and in those days there was no such thing as planning, he recalled. Large scale development had begun the Gulf American Corporation and General Development were just two of the hundreds running amuck all over Florida with no thought of how communities would look, of how many lots you could assemble and how fast you could sell them, with no thought whether there would be room for commercial or industrial uses, with no set-asides for police or fire stations none of that existed prior to the mid-0s. Taxpayers are still paying for that lack of foresight, he said. Its expensive to retrofit to locate commercial or industrial zones or put a police station or school in an area already filled out.Growing now, shaping the futureBy the mid to late 1970s, however, nearly a million lots had been sold as part of the platting vision of life, only about 10 percent with construction. So retrofitting would prove to be inevitable. The population of Southwest Florida reached 348,000 by about 1980, just after Bob Graham was elected governor for the first time, it hit 600,000 a decade later, and by 2000 residents in Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties numbered 833,000. And still, only about 33 percent of the platted lots sported homes. In Palm Beach County, meanwhile, the population jumped from 577,000 in 1980 to 1.13 million in 2000. Then came the problem of success, said Mr. Daltry. The lots provided a relatively cheap source of land for a runway housing market that dominated the first part of the 21st centurys first decade. And the bubble burst. Rampant speculation caused the collapse, not the lack of services nor the investment in the communities and region. The response by contemporary governments was shortsighted, to say the least, in Mr. Daltrys view. They gutted most management programs at the state and regional level, and politicized what was left, he said. By 2010 that process was well underway, the population of the three counties was 1.17 million (in Palm Beach it reached almost 1.3 million) and more than half the lots had buildings on them. Not only that, he added, but the demand for transportation, water supply, public services, hazard planning, and buffering with open space has never been as great. And now the population is about 1.5 million in the three counties (and 1.35 million in Palm Beach), and county commissioners are about to do away with regional planning of any sort, a move that will likely raise no questions from Gov. Scotts administration or the state legislature, Commissioner Mann suggests. He echoes the opinions of many others, including former Commissioner Judah. It gets worse on a state and local level, Mr. Judah said. Now theres an effort to eliminate the regional planning council (Jim Beevers outfit). The state has done its level best to weaken the DRIs the Development of Regional Impacts (in which communities with updated comprehensive plans must show what impacts a development will have before it can be permitted). So, by eliminating the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council, the commission is putting us back in the Dark Ages. And not just the Lee County commission. The Sarasota County commission kicked off the elimination of regional planning, he said, followed a month later by the Lee County Commission, both of which voted to pull out of the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council of six counties next year, withdrawing funding and support. Planning Councils provide close analyses of every aspect of a given development, transportation plan or water plan for local governments. That allows governments to work together to control and direct growth for the benefit of everybody. But now, Collier County and others also are considering abandoning regional planning. Why is that bad? asked Mr. Judah. Because the planning council was put in place recognizing that roads, water and development-impact in general does not recognize political boundaries. For instance, flow ways: Summer rains and runoff dont just stop at a county boundary. Without the Regional Planning Council to review developments on a regional basis, you run the risk of severing the flow ways that have a huge impact on rivers, estuaries and aquifers; you have a road system of six lanes than can suddenly result in two lanes if you dont look at the big picture. Another example: You even have aquifers that dont abide by political lines; so if you have one development in one county with a lot of straws in the aquifer, it affects the next county. The Department of Community Affairs managed much of this in the state, but its gone, just as many regulators for the Department of Environmental Protection and researchers who once worked for the states water management districts are gone, part of Gov. Scotts reductionist notion of government, in the eyes of Commissioner Mann. The legislature has undone much of the progress made in the early 1970s, beginning with abolition of the Department of Community Affairs, followed by the fact that were not requiring developments of regional impact, he said. Those efforts used to be a significant part of Florida development. So its been a huge reversal, where the growth industry is now the beneficiary of far fewer requirements and regulations that protect everybody. For Commissioner Mann, I have great and grave concerns about what will happen in the next 25 years. In Lee County, his fellow commissioners have given the green light to a number of developments that would have been restricted by the countys old comprehensive development plan, usually by a vote of four to one. Less restricted development is a detriment to protecting water quality and resources, says Commissioner Mann, often the dissenting vote in board decisions to allow leapfrog development on wetlands or in rural areas beyond the reach of current infrastructure, for example. The Lee commissioners also hugely reduced impact fees that pay for infrastructure, putting that burden back on taxpayers who already moved into the region and paid those impact fees once. Mr. Judah explained it this way: The Lee County Commission reduced impact fees by 80 percent, and then a couple of years ago implemented a slight increase so its a reduction of 55 percent from what it once was. If you look at the total dollars this community has forfeited leading up to March, 2018, it will be about $80 million. So not only have we lost $33 to $35 million in road impact fees, but another $45 million that would have gone to schools. Collier County, meanwhile, did not reduce impact fees through the recession or after that was just a red herring developers used, and the Building Industry Association used, in Lee, Mr. Judah said. Lee commissioners instead, with the strong support of the Building Industry Association, have voted to use incremental funding money taken from property taxes to make up some of the difference. In Collier, however where Naples ranks as one of the best-designed and wealthiest cities in the state the judgment of county officials has sometimes been far from prescient, in the eyes of Collier Commissioner and Board Chair Penny Taylor. One example is beach parking. In (early s planning) the county commission did not plan beach access in terms of growth. So now I think we have six or seven beach accesses in the county, and the city of Naples has 42 beach accesses. The way the city of Naples was planned was to understand that people were coming here to enjoy the beach. So, at the end of every street was an access. And when a developer or Realtor came who wanted to condo-ize south of the Beach Club, all the way down to the shoreline, the people said, Youre not going to do this. They had a vision, a relaxed residential feeling that was welcoming. The county, instead, had a vision of money, she suggested a vision that exists today, as well, even when it comes to developing new communities in sensitive wetlands. The business of Collier County is the buying and selling of Collier County.

But its not true if were looking to the future and the gr owth butt on is on. The pressure to develop, though, is enormous. Just as it was when Naples restricted high-rises and created beach access. In the county they let properties go, the commissioners at the time sold the access in condo after condo from Vanderbilt going north even at Pelican Bay, said Commissioner Taylor. Its private, and they allowed it. It could have been different. Thats a very sad story, and were facing problems with that today. For any region of the state, the Big Picture planners still strongly recommend regional not just local planning and development aimed at accommodating growth. Local communities are starting to understand the realities, but sometimes the politicians refuse, Democrat or Republican, noted Steve Bourassa, professor and director of the School of Urban and Regional Planning at Florida Atlantic University, one of the most celebrated planning departments in the United States. Id say this about planning in Lee County or anywhere, he added: Whats needed is a broadly regional approach to planning. One issue is transportation. Theres a real need to integrate land use and transportation more effectively and on a regional scale. So doing away with a regional planning council is not a good move. Also, we need to think about land use patterns consistent with public transportation, with walkable communities, with community water and sewer infrastructure, not septic, which is so much worse for the environment with something other than traditional suburban track housing. But thats what most development in recent decades has consisted of.Modern timesA great deal the shape of the future in Florida depends on who takes the reins in Tallahassee and what future governors and legislatures may require of local governments and of citizens. Florida has been pinched between two definitions of What is Florida? said Bob Graham, the states 38th governor and retired U.S. senator, who stepped out of Washington in 2005 after 18 years in the Senate. He now heads the Florida Conservation Commission. One group says its a commodity of no distinctive value, and therefore undeserving of our protection. If you want to fill in a wetland to build a shopping center, or build a marina on a dry land, you can do it. The other group sees it as a treasure, and serves each generations efforts to protect and pass it on to the next generation. The commodity side was in control for most of the 20th century, and is now in control again. Elections in 2018 and 2020 will decide how Floridians see their state going forward either as a commodity, or as a treasure, he added. Many hope for a return of the sometimes feisty, sometimes careful system optimists of once upon a time who could work across party lines in government to make decisions that would help future Floridians, they say. Commissioner Mann, now a Republican, was a Democrat and state legislator at the time who helped implement state rules that controlled growth at the county level for decades a witness to those heady planning days. In one case when he was governor, Bob Graham recalled, a group of legislators backed by prominent business owners made a strong bid to build a crossstate canal project that would have started near Cedar Key and infused major aquifers with salt water, ultimately destroying part of the Everglades. We killed that sumbitch, Commissioner Mann said, describing how he worked closely with Republicans to do the right thing including the late Sen. Warren Henderson, from Sarasota. Meanwhile, growth development continues anew, sometimes with little seeming regard for whats about to happen in the next 30 years. About 230 new condominium buildings came under construction last year in Miami-Dade alone, many along Miami Beach, noted Dr. Wanless. Across the state, high-rise condominiums continue to appear on the Caloosahatchee riverfront in downtown Fort Myers, where streets were completely submerged at the end of August after a few inches of rain (that was before Hurricane Irma); in Collier County north of Naples, where commissioners for years have permitted high-rises and other development on or near the beach; and at such massive development sites as Babcock Ranch in Charlotte County, where the first of 1,900 homes are rising east of I-75 on a 17,600-acre sprawl that will include 6.5 million square feet of commercial space but all of it wrapped into less than half of the development footprint. Although Babcock Ranch is a self-sustaining town in design, it will nevertheless require huge changes to regional roads, among other accommodations for infrastructure. At build out, Babcock could include 50,000 residents. Whether the planners have anticipated its full impact on regional infrastructure remains to be seen; but taken at a glance, observers say, its the bestplanned development in Florida history, with sophisticated infrastructure and state-of-the-art technologies including solar and smart-vehicle use built into the plan. But in any development, the proof is in the pudding, suggested Mr. Daltry. It doesnt matter how high you are in a condo building, or how well designed it is. If it floods below you, youre in trouble, he said.On deckAdam Putnam, the leading candidate for governor next year, a Republican and now Commissioner of Agriculture, did not respond to Florida Weekly requests for an interview to ask him how he planned to manage money, water resources and growth if elected governor. A Democratic opponent, former state legislator Gwen Graham, daughter of Sen. Bob Graham, said planning is essential. Thats the key word planning. Its the responsibility of the governor to look forward and anticipate challenges a state will face. Rick Scotts dismantling of our growth management laws has resulted in a failure of planning. A healthy economy in Florida goes hand-in-hand of with a healthy environment. That may be where the problem becomes complicated. We have to get back to making smart state government decisions, she said. Were going to have 15 million more people in Florida than today in the notso-distant future. We have to plan this so we arent overwhelming Floridas unique quality of life. Water, beaches, springs, state parks I am proud to be someone who recognizes that growth is positive. But we need to be managing this growth in a smart way, with regulations that have buy-ins from those being regulated so we have benefits for all. And time is pressing. You only have one chance to do this right, in terms of reversing some of the damage thats been done. Were not going to stand in the way of growth, but we wont let it (destroy) us. For Dr. Wanless, the first step in good planning is to face reality. All the evidence points to what is now an inescapable tsunami of environmental change and growth bearing down on the Sunshine State. Nothing like this has happened either in the memory or the history of any humans here. Not, at least, since the first Europeans arrived and ultimately destroyed the Calusa. In fact, he insists, some contemporary beachfronts will become future shallow marine environments, as hard as that may be to accept, now. And they can have the potential to spawn a healthy ecosystem if theyre cleaned up starting now. Without intense and responsible effort (those waters) will become highly polluted from inundated waste disposal sites, polluted ground on industrial sites, and pollution released from inundated buildings and infrastructure, he predicted. We are too late to alter the inevitable change, but we can adapt to it if we confront the realities now and with transparency: Our state and regional growth planning must become more rigorous and better coordinated. And our on-going efforts to clean and prepare the environment elsewhere, especially across the entire Everglades system from Orlando south, must be hastened, experts say. Im almost 81, and I have been an optimist all my life, said Sen. Graham, who grew up on a dairy farm near Coral Gables. I have seen Florida when it was on its knees, particularly after devastating climactic events, primarily hurricanes. And Ive seen it on its knees after economic collapses that have seemed to occur on roughly 20-year intervals, he recalled. In all these cases its recovered with a stronger sense of its future and a stronger economy. But I am concerned now. Things are different. CAROLYN ALLEN / FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESGov. Rick Scott in Miami in 2015. Jobs and the economy were the primary reasons cited by his administration and many county commissions for expanding development with less regulation.

A halfmile or more has just disappeared in the last three years. All thats left is riprap and rocks where the dune used to be. Every major storm started taking swipes at it. And that was before Hurricane Irma took out a 200-foot section of Manasota Beach Road. Mr. Blisss home, a vacation rental built in 2011, is safe. Its on the eastern side of the islands major roadway and built to stringent hurricane codes. The owners of condos and a single-family home right on the beach havent been so lucky. After Tropical Storm Colin and Hurricane Hermine dealt a one-two punch last summer, their homes were deemed uninhabitable with cracked foundations and waves lapping at the back door. It was ground zero, Mr. Bliss said. Storms come in, breach the seawall and trash the place. My house is designed to take the flood. Its new construction. But the 1950s homes are way below the flood zone and people cant afford flood insurance. Along Southwest Floridas beaches, erosion is one of the many sides of climate change caused by growth and the hardening of the coast seawalls, riprap and other structures designed to protect multi-million dollar manses, waterfront businesses and municipal recreational facilities. Scientists say climate change will lead locally to increased hurricane events, extended droughts and shorter but more intense rainy seasons and the introduction of tropical diseases to livestock and humans. Those flooding rains in August and Irma in September were just a harbinger of whats to come. Southwest Florida and Florida, for that matter, are among the most susceptible areas in the world threatened by rising seas. The Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council has been tackling climate change for two decades, studying the areas vulnerability and how policy changes can reduce the acceleration of the inevitable. Back in 2009, when Jim Beever, a geobiologist and the councils principal planner, began assessing the impact of climate change, the general consensus estimated a 1.2-degree temperature increase and a 12to 18-inch rise in sea level by 2100. The acceleration to higher temperatures seems to be coming on faster than previously thought, he said. It looks like well get there sooner, around 2080. Its getting hotter sooner. The rate of sea level rise for our region has been about the thickness of a Velveeta cheese slice, each year. It doesnt seem like much, but stack it up and you get a Velveeta box before long. Internationally, the just-released and most comprehensive study of climate change ever, the Climate Science Special Report, outlines in over 600 pages a 1.8 degree Fahrenheit increase in global temperature since 1902 and a sea level rise of 7 to 8 inches during the past 117 years with a 3-inch increase since 1993. It also attributes these changes to human activities. Just as growth is inevitable for Southwest Florida, so too, is a changing climate which will unleash a range of complications and challenges. While its impossible to stop this natural process, it can be slowed down through smarter planning, better building codes and land development, an emphasis on green building, reduced vehicular emissions and a host of other measures. Its important to make it clear you cannot stop this, Mr. Beever said. But we can adapt. We can slow the acceleration. The only thing humans can affect is manmade.Left to run its course, Mother Nature would shift barrier islands and deal up beach-claiming storms, redepositing them elsewhere. But now, cities and counties are shelling out millions of dollars to keep beaches in the same place, reactively re-sanding them to stay on top of storm surge and armoring the shoreline with seawalls, which impact turtle nesting and pose other adverse environmental consequences.Collier County renourished its shoreline to the tune of $3.9 million in 2016. Charlotte County is facing a potential $30 million project to save its shoreline, part of which could include reclaiming Manasotas disappearing beaches and creating a natural underwater barrier to tame waves. Storms have scraped away sand, leaving four acres of bare, hard limestone. Nearly 44 miles of Southwest Floridas beaches are critically eroded, according to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Erosion is considered critical if theres a threat to or a loss of upland development, recreation, wildlife habitat and important cultural resources. Threatened beaches remain on the list despite renourishment projects to aid the state in acquiring future federal funding for larger scale projects. More than 14 miles of Colliers beach fall in the category. In Lee County, 22.4 miles of its 47 miles of coastline is considered critically eroded and those portions of former beachfront along Manasota Key toward Charlottes northern boundary are among the countys 6.5 miles of shoreline rated as critically eroded. Eight critically eroded areas in Palm Beach County span 33.6 miles, with a 1.5-mile section from Tequesta and Jupiter Inlet Colony threatening private developments and recreational facilities at Coral Cove Park.NE MORE MAJOR STORM AND DRAKE BLISSS Manasota Key home likely will be a little closer to the beach.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com NOVEMBER 15-16, 2017 GROWTH 7 ASPECIALREPORT GROWTHThe rate between renourishing and renourishing again is getting shorter and shorter, Mr. Beever observed. Weve spoken up in meetings but engineers, renourishers and some politicians deal with facts not approached by science. The regional planning council cites three reasons why communities have failed to address climate change: uncertainty over or denial of climate change and its implications; failures to include the true economic, social, and environmental costs of present policies that encourage, allow and subsidize such risky development; and legal tenets of private property rights. On the flip side are the naysayers who believe the environment-friendly agendas of liberal state and national government are crying wolf. During the administrations of former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and President Barack Obama, the Environmental Protection Agency generously doled out grants to fund climate change vulnerability studies and money for resiliency implementation. At one time the federal government was much more interested in this, Mr. Beever said. But then we changed governors and we changed presidents. There were mandates and programs encouraging planning and funding that planning but they went away. Climate changes impact on Southwest Florida wont be the stuff of an apocalyptic movie. No coastal cities underwater or high-rise towers swept into the ocean (although it might make it easier for some to step out their door and fish, Mr. Beever quipped). The issue of doom is overdone on this, he said. We want to be able to live in a way that makes sense. According to the planning councils research, climate change impacts of sealevel rise are already evident throughout the region salt marshes have moved inland about the length of a football field since the 1950s, coastal flooding has increased and storm surge is more pronounced during tropical storms. And its not just coastal communities that will incur the complications of climate change. Inland, Labelle is experiencing major water-quality issues, Mr. Beever said. Its water supply, increased droughts and shifts of temperatures will affect agriculture and the types of crops that will grow. We anticipate more tropical products and also increased tropical diseases in cattle. Zika, dengue fever and other tropical diseases are showing up in small amounts in all communities of Southwest Florida. Mr. Beever sees evidence some local cities and counties are taking climate change seriously. Municipalities are more a leader on this than the state, he said. One reason is mayors have to get things done. They cant just sit around and talk philosophy. Hes completed 15 climate control resiliency studies, having just wrapped up one for Cape Coral. The regional planning council has presented to Charlotte County and completed the Lee County Resiliency Plan in 2010. The latter included more than 70 suggestions for educating the public, reducing fleet emissions, incorporating climate control measures in building and land codes, and protecting and enhancing key environmental areas. In November 2010 the county also lauded its involvement as one of the eight inaugural adaptation communities in the country to participate in the Climate Resilient Communities program. Yet despite all the fanfare, the county has yet to implement a single recommendation or take steps toward adopting a climate resiliency plan and reducing its vulnerability, which were also outlined in its CompleteLee sustainability plan. Jonathan Romine, a principal for EnSite, a Fort Myers design firm specializing in sustainable planning, civil engineering, urban design and landscape architect, worked on the plan, which took three years to develop. He reads aloud the recommended actions outlined in the document. Nope, that didnt get done, he said. No, that one didnt happen either. They didnt do that We prioritized goals, conducted public workshops on climate adaptation and the steps they could do to adapt. There was also funding available to help with implementation, Mr. Romine said. Coastal communities need to be doing things to address climate change, he said. One thing the county was supposed to do as a priority was to improve facilities so they would be better prepared for a natural disaster. There were things they could have been doing that would have better prepared the community for Irma. Imagine if it had landed in Estero, Cape Coral or Fort Myers. Charley wasnt the hurricane. It was just an example. Collier County has been taking steps to address climate change. Before breaking for summer recess, commissioners learned the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration had approved a $1 million grant for Florida Gulf Coast University Professor Michael Savarese and his colleagues from the University of Florida to map out and analyze sea-level rise risks throughout the county. Its a way of providing Collier County, its municipalities and managers of urban and natural resources an understanding of what our region might look like in the future as sea level rise continues and as storms continue, Mr. Savarese told the board. Funded by BP monies under the RESTORE Act following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the three-year webbased project will create maps, simulations and animations illustrating and predicting the impact of sea level rise in 2030, 2060 and 2100 using a variety of magnitudes and storm scenarios. It provides a suite of possibilities for what the future might hold for us, said Dr. Savarese. Its $1 million in new science available to us. It requires the county and its municipalities to have some kind of planning effort ... that moves in concert with this project. The Naples-Based Southwest Florida Nature Conservancy is also actively involved in climate change, conducting a systematic internal assessment to identify existing gaps in Southwest Florida and use its expertise in policy, science and education to develop solutions, said President and CEO Robert Moher. We have core expertise in critical ecological infrastructure, notably mangrove forests that are essential bulwarks against sea level rise. In October, a summit on sea rise organized by Naples City Councilwoman Linda Penniman and Commission Chairwoman Penny Taylor attracted 200 and included presentations by government officials from Miami-Dade County. The South Florida county, along with Palm Beach and Broward counties, formed the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact in 2010 to coordinate mitigation and adaptation activities across county lines. Its ninth annual climate leadership summit in December will focus on engaging businesses and the community in critical decisions on adaptation, climate and energy solutions, and resilience. Of the three counties, Palm Beach has the highest elevation, at about 15 feet. Miami-Dade and Broward average six feet. The Breakers rises 13 feet above sea level; the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts towers at 33 feet. Punta Gorda is well ahead of the climate change curve, its city council unanimously approving the incorporation of the Punta Gorda Adaptation Plan into its comprehensive plan in 2009. The city was able to piggyback onto the regional planning councils comprehensive vulnerability assessment of Charlotte Harbor through the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program, which targeted Punta Gorda as among the first regional cities likely to suffer negative effects of climate change. It identified 246 management adaptations that would help the entire Southwest Florida region and also noted the loss of mangrove forests along the harbor, the degradation of water quality and geomorphic changes to barrier islands. Jim was looking for a partner for his estuary work and came to us, said Joan LeBeau, Punta Gordas interim urban manager, who was the citys chief planner at the time. We thought it was a great idea and an important planning tool. As a small city, this wasnt something we could do on our own. They planned the majority of the work. It makes sense if youre near water; you have to plan for issues.

From the beginning of its climate change discussions the city involved the public who knew all too well the power of the sea and hurricanes. About 100 people attended the first of a three-day workshop. A lot of times you start talking climate stuff and people start politicizing, Ms. LeBeau said. You have to introduce and explain the science first and start with baby steps to help move and get people realizing this is coming. Having buy-in made a world of difference. The plan came to council with the backing of the community. The citys final adaptation plan identified several strategies for addressing climate change at little to no cost. The city has implemented all but two or three. Components of the document call for building infrastructure on higher ground, restoring oyster bars and mangrove fringes to add structural integrity to weakened shorelines, and trumps federal and state building codes to push foundations an additional .25 inches higher. There are both positive and negative impacts, Ms. LeBeau said. Updating the building codes and raising the base flood elevation is more costly to developers who have to add another quarter of an inch but in the long run it buys you time. She points to Tangier Island, Virginia, as a dramatic example of sea level rise. Since 1850, the islands landmass has diminished 67 percent, cemeteries are underwater and moderate sea-level rise models project the town will likely be abandoned in the next 50 years. Ms. LeBeaus department also is working with the Southwest Florida Conservancy to determine the feasibility of creating a living shoreline on the northwestern side of the city and hopes to present the project to council soon. Implementation would help soften wave action on sea walls. The reason were pushing ahead on this is because one of the businesses in town is excited by the stuff were doing in climate change and sea level rise, she said. We want something more natural that helps soften the hard edge. We spent a million dollars on Harbor Walk and want to protect it. Fertilizer, however, remains the citys and the entire Southwest Florida regions most challenging panacea, contributing to algae blooms in waterways throughout the area and impacting overall water quality. Punta Gorda was named one of the most progressive cities in the world by the 2014 National Climate Assessment and the CHNEP was cited by the EPA as one of the six initial Climate Ready Estuary pilot programs in the country. Punta Gorda is the very best example, Mr. Beever said. When a critical facility reached the end of its life, it was moved to a safer inland location. The city has a whole new building code everyone is doing and being consistent. There are no exemptions. One of the things that will make a plan not work is if everybody can get out of it. A living document, the plan will be updated continuously. Any course we take, were going to vet first and make sure its the right thing for Punta Gorda, said Ms. LeBeau. Were dealing with things our current population might not see in their lifetimes. We have a group here that is progressive and sees it as: My kids will be here and I want to do something. Meanwhile, Charlotte County is dealing with the plight of its shoreline, putting together a 10-year feasibility and management plan after state legislators denied funding. How and who will pay for beach restoration is one of the key unknown factors. Were in the public workshop stage right now, said county spokesperson Brian Gleason. Were working through identifying the scope of the project and funding. Charlotte Countys comprehensive plan doesnt reference climate change specifically, however it does address coastal erosion and sea level rise through zoning and its coastal management plan, Mr. Gleason said. The only way property owners can circumvent the countys prohibition of hardscaping on its barrier islands, is by emergency declaration from the state, likely after a significant storm. We dont allow any type of construction or development in areas susceptible to storm surge, he said, adding its simply impossible for builders to bypass codes or flood-level requirements. Buildings are inspected by the county several times before a certificate of occupancy is issued. Its inconceivable that much of an epic fail could occur. Without enacting climate control measures, coastal communities could be forced to armor up against flood waters and sea level rises or retreat to higher ground. Back in 2009, Mr. Beever priced out alternative climate change controls for Punta Gorda, estimating construction of a surge-blocking bulkhead at $381 million; a view-blocking earthen dike with pumps as high as $3.8 billion; and the Venice approach of raising buildings above storm surge zones at $1.2 billion and already underway in Galveston, Texas. The take home message is there is time to do a climate adaptation plan and if you plan ahead youll be happier, said Mr. Beever. Those that dont do anything arent necessarily doomed but theyre going to be pretty miserable. They could become communities left behind. The Toll of Climate ChangeEven under the least impactful scenario, Southwest Florida will experience: Increased climate instability Increased coastal erosion Continuous sea-level rise Wetter wet seasons Drier dry seasons More extreme hot and cold events Shifts in fauna and ora Increased tropical diseases in plants, wildlife and humans Destabilized aquatic food webs including increased harmful algae blooms Increasing strains upon and costs in infrastructure Increased uncertainty concerning variable risk assessment with uncertain actuarial futures.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com NOVEMBER 15-16, 2017 GROWTH 9 ASPECIALREPORT GROWTHThe local flood will be repeated many times elsewhere in coming years, just one of many environmental challenges Floridians have never faced in such large degree, he predicts. One of the biggest problems: the nearly half-million acres of sugar cane planted mostly south and west of Lake Okeechobee in land known as the Everglades Agricultural Area, a barrier roughly 20 miles deep that blocks the traditional flow of water southward into the Everglades. The 143-mile, 30-foot-high dike around Lake O that protects the big farming interests and some 40,000 people living near the lake is crumbling and it offers no major southern spillway. Without a spillway on the south, water cant pass southward into the now off-limits Everglades Agricultural Area, the Everglades and Florida Bay, as it once naturally did. Since the dike was built, when water in the lake was held at or below 15 feet, the lakes marshes generally thrived, according to Audubon Floridas official account. When water goes higher to a consistent 16 feet, plants begin to die in the 65-square-mile submerged marsh zone. Ultimately, that kills everything else up the food chain, including wading birds and alligators and even tourism, on which resident human life here sometimes depends. After hurricanes raised the lake levels in 2004 and 2005, reports Audubon, the crappie fishery took about eight years to recover. Meanwhile the dike continues to be ranked one of the most dangerous sites in North America one of the most likely to fail, a one on a scale of one to five by the international insurance firm, Lloyds of London. Since 2000, Americans have spent $870 million to repair that 80-year-old dike in an ongoing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project likely to cost at least another $1.5 billion, officials now say, ranking this at the high end of the most expensive jobs ever shouldered in North America by the Army Corps. As things stand now, those challenges and others will paint the Florida landscape of the near future far and wide with scores of local and regional floods resulting not just from rainstorms but from normal or king tides not to mention more significant floods from future hurricanes that resemble Charley (2004) or Irma (2017) but worse: they are likely to bring lifealtering storm surges. Over time, not a long time, theyll defeat infrastructure and hugely reduce the quality of life in the Sunshine State. Buying a Prius and planting a couple of trees isnt going to change this. Its going to happen, Professor Wanless said. Those floods may come with a flip side, as well but the flip-side of a proverbial coin with no heads, only tails: Hugely destructive droughts, to name one. Polluted or salt-spoiled drinking water and compromised wastewater treatment facilities near the coasts, to name another. Lacking restorative quantities of fresh water inflow from the north, Florida Bay is dying. Its alarming increase in salt now twice the traditional natural level coupled with rising sea levels also now threatens the vast Biscayne Aquifer, the subterranean source of drinking water for roughly 8 million residents of the southeast coast and the Florida Keys. Unfortunately, thats not all. Nightmarish blooms of algae also infest Lake Okeechobee and its tributaries a suffocating cyanobacteria that kills plants and animals from Charlotte Harbor on the west to the once super-fecund Indian River Lagoon on the east, which stretches south more than 150 miles from the Ponce De Leon Inlet in Mosquito Lagoon to the Jupiter Inlet north of West Palm Beach. Not only did that entire water system endure the lost summer of 2013, it suffered a disastrous algae bloom in 2016 that covered almost 240 square miles of Lake O as well, threatening the fisheries on both coasts, along with the tourist industry. Now as 2017 winds down, the specter of such catastrophes looms large again. This is Florida so we average 60 inches of rain a year, but it isnt that. Its 40 inches or 80 inches and sometimes theres only a 30-mile distance between them, said Marty Baum, born and raised in the region to a long line of pioneering Florida families, and now Riverkeeper on the Indian River Lagoon. So the water has to go somewhere and now its polluted, and the system is overloaded. The effect is dire from east to west and on both coasts. The problem is neither parochial nor local. Its regional and peninsular. The water management in Florida absolutely defaults to agriculture, specifically Big Sugar, which holds the plug to solving our discharge problems, Mr. Baum said. There is no other viable solution than to buy some land south of the lake, put the water in the system, and send it south, clean. The management of dirty water is killing us. The algae is the new normal. Its here to stay. And its only going to get worse. Almost a month after Hurricane Irma early in the second week of October water levels in Lake O had risen to more than 17 feet. And that was after the Army Corps had been releasing vast quantities of polluted, nutrient-rich water downstream, both east and west, a fact many seemed to ignore as October waned and the sunny, cooler days of November approached.

The last time so much water came down the estuaries was July, 1973, said John Cassani, the Calusa Waterkeeper. Unfortunately, the water is untreated after decades of environmental, agricultural and urban growth planning that created the problem, and then subsequent decades of planning that has failed to solve the problem, he explained. So, its polluted with high-nutrient agricultural waste and leeching septic systems, the powerful stimulants of cyanobacteria. Like Marty Baum, Mr. Cassani an affable water scientist and 60-something distance runner for whom marathoning is a form of meditation represents the Waterkeeper Alliance (www. waterkeeper.org), an international nonprofit organization of experts and activists based in the U.S. aiming to protect water in various regions of the world and the nation. The Alliance has 11 waterkeepers working in Florida (sometimes called riverkeepers or coastkeepers). Those include the Indian Riverkeeper, Marty Baum, a Miami Coastkeeper, and a Collier County Waterkeeper, among the others north to south. At this rate of flow, Mr. Cassani noted of post-Irma water releases from Lake O by the Army Corps, the C-43 reservoir would fill in just 5.5 days, assuming it was empty to begin with. The C-43, a companion idea to the C-44 on the east of Lake Okeechobee, doesnt exist. Like the recently approved SB10, a reservoir fast-tracked by the legislature and governor to someday store water on public lands south of Lake O, the C-43 is merely a plan a waterstorage reservoir yet to be built along the Caloosahatchee in Hendry County. Meanwhile, the dirty water keeps coming. Its a long downward spiral that can stretch from boyhood into manhood. The kind of fishing Capt. Daniel Andrews, a guide, did as a boy in the Caloosahatchee estuary and Charlotte Harbor over prolific beds of sea grass and oyster banks is all but gone, he told Florida Weekly. Now he often has to take his clients 25 or 30 miles offshore just to find fish. The experience encouraged him to co-found the organization that champions the cause, Captains for Clean Water. It makes good economic sense, to start with: Sport fishing alone in Florida stimulates $9.3 billion in economic activity and creates 123,000 jobs, according to the American Sportfishing Association.Rising sea level warningsOn that wet August morning when Prof. Wanless stood in a sunny, flooding Miami Beach neighborhood, the $500 million effort of taxpayers to stiff-arm flooding with seawalls and pumps had failed. And not after a king tide or big storm, he said, but following a merely energetic rain squall. It put everything in perspective, for him and others. The mayor of Miami Beach told us were going to fix Miami Beach so you can enjoy it 1,000 years from now as you do today, he said. Thats almost criminal, to say that. Thats buying into it. Miami Beach wont survive the century, maybe not the middle of the century. But government officials are concerned about holding on to tax rolls. And nobody wants to needlessly scare people. On the other hand, he added, its also a horrible thing to lie to them. The underlying reality of flooding and infrastructure collapse isnt complicated: By 2048, sea level rise on the planet is expected to be two feet above the current level, with three feet of rise by 2063, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration which issued an addendum to that estimate in January that could take it higher. And by 2100, when this years crop of newborns turns 83 men and women destined to live with the consequences of todays decisions conservative estimates put sea level rise at 6.6 feet (NOAAs addendum now says it could go to more than 8 feet). Heres what that means. A twoto three-foot rise of sea level will make nearly all of the barrier islands of the world uninhabitable, initiate inundation of a major portion of the worlds deltas, and make low-lying coastal zones like south and central Florida increasingly challenging communities in which to maintain infrastructure and welfare and to assure protection of life and property during hurricanes and other extreme events, Professor Wanless wrote in July. Such infrastructure failure, therefore, is destined to happen many other places besides Miami Beach in the next three or four decades, he warns, noting that Marco Island, Naples, Fort Myers and Sarasota are particularly vulnerable on the west, along with many oceanfront and island communities along the east coast. And not just after a major storm event such as Hurricane Irma. Bottom line: Things are going to get rougher than they have been; were going to leave our children with that reality. Planning therefore becomes essential, say the experts. The decisions of voters and current political leaders will either inhibit the worst of this outcome, or let it happen in ways that chang e Florida forever. What can we do?So what can we do? asks Mr. Cassani, who spent a first career as a hydrologist in Lee County. Now as the Calusa Waterkeeper he finds himself working at the crossroads of the lower west coasts three greatest planning challenges: First, to overcome pollution from decades of agricultural waste flowing into Lake Okeechobee, most of it from cattle ranches and dairy farms north of the lake in the nowrestored Kissimmee River basin, and from the vast cane fields around the lake owned by Florida Crystals Fanjul brothers, and by the U.S. Sugar Corporation. (Added to that legacy pollution are toxins from old septic systems and urban drainage in the Caloosahatchee basin.) Second, to encourage elected and appointed officials to aggressively protect the waters, and thus the land, the people and the economy, with sensible development that preserves wetlands and water. And finally, to restore sufficient quantities of timely fresh water flowing from Lake Okeechobee west down the estuary and south into the southern Everglades, thereby maintaining a healthy estuarine system and bay on the Gulf of Mexico. The same challenges exist for waters in the St. Lucie estuary flowing east out of Okeechobee and into the southern terminus of the Indian River Lagoon on the Atlantic coast, Marty Baum points out once one of the most fecund fisheries on the planet. And so does the same question: What can we do? No one works in a vacuum. No one produces crops and meat, or builds new developments, or serves visitors in restaurants and hotels, or fishes, or lives here as a permanent resident, in a vacuum, he explains, echoing the opinion of many others. Fixing the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries will also require connecting other fixes in the Everglades system and restoring both water quality and appropriate seasonal quantity not just along the Kissimmee River north of Lake Okeechobee to the lake itself, but throughout the Okeechobee basin and all the way south through public and private lands to Florida Bay. Thats not happening now at a pace that can accommodate growth, even though the fixes have been identified. The Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan enacted by the U.S. Congress 17 years ago has made little progress in water storage, acknowledged as the key to Everglades and estuary restoration. We have the know-how, but not the political willpower, Mr. Cassani said, adding his voice to a chorus of observers citing the same problem. The problem is our elected government, added Mr. Baum. The current administration (of Gov. Rick Scott) has gone out of its way to support agriculture and big oil and all of these polluting entities. They deregulated, so the state isnt really managing our natural treasures in a manner that is sustainable. They chip away and chip away, and theyre not alone. The federal government is dismantling the EPA as we sit here. As a waterkeeper, I find that pretty grim. Those opinions have been echoed in part by many others, including the University of Florida Wa ter Instit utes Dr. Wendy Graham, co-author of a seminal 2014 study analyzing water problems and solutions in Florida a study disputed by virtually no one. Water storage that does not now exist is the key to the practical side of the COURTESY PHOTOAlgae blooms in May 2016 killed marine life for miles along the Caloosahatchee River.Everyone now acknowledges that Floridas water problems and the Everglades have to be fixed, and restored.

Our report said, this is a big problem with hydrologic, legal, and infrastructure constraints, and there is no silver bullet that will solve the problem. Well need storage north, south, east and west and probably more storage in the lake to make it work. As for water moved south, into the Glades, into Florida Bay assuring that 8 million people with more coming can keep drinking from the Biscayne Aquifer not only do you have to store it, but you have to convey it to where you want and treat it to legal standards, explained Dr. Graham. Ingenuity coupled with greedMichael Grunwald is an Everglades expert and heir to the environmental legacy of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, who published the most celebrated book in the history of environmental apologists here: The Everglades: River of Grass. That was 70 years ago, in 1947. Mr. Grunwald, who wrote the forward to the 60th anniversary edition of her book, authored a groundbreaking book of his own now a decade old: The Swamp: The Everglades, Florida and the Politics of Paradise. A senior staff writer for Politico Magazine, he lives in the Miami area with his wife and two young children. That fact shapes what he sees now, he says which includes a darkly comic and troubling interpretation of Floridas growth appearing under his byline on the cover of the November-December edition of Politico. He calls his piece, The Boomtown That Shouldnt Exist, explaining a classic Florida story in the subtitle: Cape Coral, Florida, was built on total lies. One big storm could wipe it off the map. Oh, and its the fastest growing city in the United States. Mr. Grunwald spoke with Florida Weekly not long before his story appeared in print. Central and South Florida used to have this fantastic water control district it was called the Everglades, he said. It rained a lot, water sat on the wetlands and trickled down, in the dry season there was enough and in the wet season it didnt cascade on top of everything. But that changed. Then half the Everglades was paved and drained, much of the rest was dammed and ditched and diverted, and now you have 2,000 miles of levees and canals and engines cannibalized from nuclear submarines for pumps, theyre so powerful. That screwed everything up. Decades of American ingenuity coupled with greed has not resulted in our control of the water; on the contrary, it controls us, he acknowledged. Now in the wet season when Lake O gets high you have to blast it out (down the estuaries east and west). And in the dry season you get these horrible droughts. None of thats natural, thats for sure. Like Dr. Graham and John Cassani, Mr. Grunwald suggests everyone knows the practical answer to the problem. The answer to all of this is storage, he said. So you dont have to dump water where you dont want to in the wet season, and you have enough in the dry for agriculture, bugs and bunnies, and the 8 million people who live around here. Mr. Grunwald is an optimist, he insists in part because of his children, ages 9 and 7. Everyone now acknowledges that Floridas water problems and the Everglades have to be fixed, and restored. On every political side of the issue the left-wingers, the right-wingers and the Buffalo-wingers they know theres no other choice. So the pressure to make the fixes will mount and mount because his children with many others may encourage voters to pay more attention, and elected leaders to do the right thing. If thats not a justifiable cause for optimism, theres another: Some progress has been made, he said. The water is cleaner than it used to be. Its still not quite clean enough, but over 30 years, and continuing over the last 10, there has been real improvement. Thats something people should feel really good about. In a sense, were poisoning the Everglades a little more slowly. But thats real progress. Pocked by terrible periods of regress. The obvious moment that showed how dysfunctional the ecosystem is was the sort of stinkification of the Treasure Coast (first, in 2013). One of North Americas most bio-diverse estuaries looked like guacamole and smelled like crap. Thats (a result of) the main plumbing problem in Everglades, which the massive restoration project now 17 years old was supposed to fix. And it has done virtually nothing. We still have the same problem. Mr. Grunwald was describing the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, first presented in 2000. So now, the Everglades is a $16 (to $20) billion water-storage project going on for 17 years, that has provided nothing. Not one reservoir has been completed. Storage wells? There were supposed to be 330 (many north of the lake). Were no longer even thinking of them. There are other missed opportunities staring at the sky, too. The rock quarries you see when you fly into the Miami airport? The idea was, when were done mining for highways and driveways well provide storage for water in those quarries. But thats not going to happen anymore. So, it comes down to politics, he says. At least in part. Were getting nothing done, and its partly because of politics, and partly bureaucratic inertia. There are powerful interests standing in the way of getting things done the way you might want to. Know-how isnt willpower, it seems. The real solution to the environmental problems in Florida is something besides knowledge and technical savvy, longtime observers agree. The solution is political and we have a broken political system in which big money has corrupted policy making at the state level and other levels, said Mr. Cassani, again echoing the voices of other scientists who have realized politics, not just science, is the answer to a better quality of life, and a less expensive way of life, for future Floridians. But in politics, Mr. Cassani concluded, the greater public interest is often subordinate to the interests of the biggest water consumers and biggest polluters.

Fast forward 20 years and Estero is now an incorporated village, gated communities and neighborhoods have popped up in the exurbs miles east of the interstate, and a drive along any major roadway or backroad is likely to reveal a new community under construction, sometimes where it once seemed impossible. Examples of such development: The 20-home Hill Tide Estates being built on nearly 10 acres on the southern tip of Boca Grande and plans for a restaurant, retail, 148 residences and a hotel that will forever erase a slice of old Florida at the historic Placida Fishing Village. Arden, just east of Twenty Mile Bend in rural Palm Beach County, is planned for 2,000 homes and dubs itself as naturefriendly and an agri-hood because of its onsite community farm. Since the Great Recession spun Southwest Florida into a real estate downfall, the building boom has returned with a vengeance. Floridas continued growth is creating the need for more homes; however, todays building frenzy is pricing many out of homeownership. Home prices are up. Rents are also on the rise. Salaries arent. And the majority of these planned new developments are well beyond the means of the average employee. The issue is particularly pronounced in Naples and Collier County, where luxury homebuilders cater to an affluent clientele of second-home and vacation-home owners. Except for teardown properties, theres no real buildable land in the city limits. In the county, upscale gated golf communities have risen out of abandoned quarries several miles east of I-75 and an entire town Ave Marie is some 20 miles farther out. Commercial corridors have followed. And with all this demand theres little reason for developers and builders to reinvent their business model, although, as Palm Beach County Mayor Paulette Burdick points out, their own employees also are priced out of the market. Affordable housing is Palm Beach Countys No. 1 legislative issue, says Mayor Burdick. Every county in the state has a desperate need for workforce housing. Its a crisis situation in the state of Florida. Thats also how the Urban Land Institute and the National Association of Home Builders categorize the dire need for affordable housing. Prices in Naples Park, once the neighborhood for the working class, have more than doubled since buyers discovered its proximity to the beach. Resident and builder Edward Armstrong remembers when lots sold for $1,200 in 1971. Hes built as many as 75 homes in the neighborhood, including one that sold for $28,000, as well as the first house with a swimming pool. While he expressed some surprise at $800,000 sales in the community, he calls Naples Park a sleeping giant. Its so close to the water. Locally, the inability to afford a home close to their workplace is forcing midlevel employees, firefighters, teachers, law enforcement and other professionals to live elsewhere. Some Collier County firefighters commute from as far away as Fort Lauderdale, said Christopher Spencer, president of the North Collier Professional Fire Fighters & Paramedics Local 2297 and a long-time advocate for affordable housing. Some of the younger guys live with their parents, he said. Others are living out in Lehigh or Cape Coral and have to calculate what theyre saving versus tolls, time and fuel. Its painful to see how expensive it is to live in Naples and how far behind the curve we are. Theyre making their money here and investing it back in Lee County, Arcadia and Hendry County. They can work in Lee County and make less but they dont have the tolls or travel time. A dollar in Lee County goes further than a dollar in Collier County. Not only does Collier County miss out on the economic impact of workers spending their money in the county and paying taxes, those daily drives by an estimated 16,800 commuters increase traffic congestion and physically strain infrastructure and roads. Affordable housing is one of the larger barriers to economic prosperity were going to experience, said Eric Berglund, executive director of the Southwest Florida Economic Development Alliance. Teachers, firefighters, police officers and nurses cant afford to buy houses. That impacts what the community looks like. Our hospital CEOs are expressing their concerns because they cant hire nurses and other healthcare professionals, said Mayor Burdick. The top tier for workforce housing in Palm Beach County is $120,000 for a household. I dont know too many planners, firefighters or nurses who make that kind of money. Schools are having a tough time recruiting teachers because they cant afford to relocate here. Groups in Southwest Floridas three counties ranked among the fastest growing areas in the country according to recent Census data are researching options to include workforce development in the mix. Previous attempts have failed. During the height of the last building boom, Collier County required developers to pay into an affordable housing trust based on the size of their proposed new development. The county collected $604,581 of an anticipated $8 million from 2005 to 2007, and then stopped as the market collapsed. In 2011 it ended the program and refunded developers for homes or lot sales that never happened. Palm Beach County adopted a workforce housing program in 2006, requiring developers who were granted increased density to allocate a percentage to workforce housing. There also was a buyout option. They have an $80,000 buyout when the median price of a home is $340,000, Mayor Burdick said. Since 2006, zero workforce homes have been built. Collier County is delving deeper this time around, tasking nonprofits, city and county officials, affected employees and citizens to devise solutions based on recommendations from a visit earlier this year by ULI planners who outlined the economic impact and human toll on communities that lack affordable housing. The organization made 35 recommendations, including zoning changes, increased density, improved access to transportation, creating revenue streams, using available public land or vacant and underused retail sites, and forming a housing trust fund. Affordable housing impacts nearly every element of the local economy, said committee member Michael Dalby, president and CEO of the Greater Naples Area Chamber of Commerce. It impacts businesses ability to attract and retain workers. Its the chambers No. 1 priority. For affordable housing to happen, many contend solutions must involve a concerted effort between public, private and nonprofit initiatives addressing policy changes, incentives for developers and out-of-the-box thinking ideas as novel as converting long-vacant strip malls into affordable housing and increasing the emphasis on mixed-use development. One ULI recommendation rejected by the commission called for increasing minimum wage, a concept TS NOT UNCOMMON TO HEAR LONG-TIME LOCALS REMInisce about the days when Corkscrew Road was lined with sweeping ranches, Estero was just a blip on the Trail between Fort Myers and Naples, and how unlikely it was for development east of U.S. 41 to continue its eastern march past I-75.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com NOVEMBER 15-16, 2017 GROWTH 15 ASPECIALREPORT GROWTHsupported by Mr. Berglund and others intent on preventing brain drain.We have to develop a high-quality workforce to make sure everyone gets a step ahead in life, he said, referencing the FutureMakers Coalitions goal of increasing college degrees, certifications and quality credentials in Southwest Floridas workforce. Quality of life begins with a good job. After 18 months of exploring the issue, Collier Countys Community Housing Plan Stakeholders Committee presented its recommendations to a lukewarm commission in late October. The committee is advocating for establishing an affordable housing trust financed by linkage fees, a square footage-based assessment representing the additional housing needs created by new or redeveloped commercial property. It would generate an estimated $2.5 million annually to provide grants and awards to developers building workforce housing. Key components of the recommendations also include developer incentives such as increasing certainty of approval, streamlining the permitting process, reducing development costs and adopting an affordable housing density program. The proposal calls for a mixed-income ordinance to promote developments identified by the ULI as vibrant and attractive to a variety of demographics. It would also continue the countys efforts to reduce reliance on impact fees. Members of the committee expected some of the recommendations to be controversial and require courage from commissioners to make difficult and unpopular decisions for the countys future and ultimately the greater good. Affordable housing whether mortgage or rental payments is defined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development as 30 percent or less of a households gross annual income. Those spending more than 30 on housing costs are considered cost-burdened while a household shelling out more than 50 percent is considered severally cost burdened. Entry-level employees and those earning median incomes in healthcare, public safety and professional sectors are more likely to experience a cost burden than are the people holding executive, management and supervisory positions, the ULI noted in its Collier County study. Collectively the employment sectors that are the most at risk to incur a significant cost burden represent more than 50 percent of the local labor force. More than 61 percent of jobs in Collier County pay less than $33,250 a year. The affordability spectrum covers a wide range of people, said Nick Kouloheras, president of Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, whos the chairman of the stakeholder committee. The public has the perception that affordable housing is for those working in the hospitality or farming industry or construction labor force. But housing affordability in Collier County touches everybodys life. Its employees who provide services like first responders and landscape maintenance. Theres a huge lack of decent affordable housing for retirees and people with disabilities. Under current housing scenarios, a household needs to gross about $128,000 annually to afford the countys median home price. There are stereotypes but the reality is that affordable housing in Collier County is a household making a six-figure salary, Mr. Kouloheras said. Committees in Palm Beach County also are researching options for attracting workforce housing and are expected to report to the board of commissioners by summer. In areas that need affordable housing were considering increased density, said Mayor Burdick. Were looking at waving permits fees and hookups to bring down the costs for a developer to build workforce housing. It costs $10,000 to hook up to water and sewer. Were sitting down with everyone at the table to come up with new solutions as a county to this significant problem. Because developers often have little to gain financially in creating workforce housing, any plan in any county is almost guaranteed to include sprawl-containing higher densities and government subsidies. Speaking before the U.S. Senate Finance Committee in August, Granger MacDonald, chairman of the NAHB and a Texas developer and homebuilder, urged passage of the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act to promote construction of affordable rental apartments. He cited a Harvard University Joint Center of Housing study which determined the number of renter households considered severely cost burdened is at an all-time high of 11.4 million or more than one in four U.S. renters. Fees, regulatory compliance, modern building and energy codes, building materials, land and labor costs determine whether a project is financial viable, he said. If we want to provide affordable rental housing for lower-income households, we cannot do so without a subsidy. In Florida, money to create workforce housing is already in place, according to Mayor Burdick. For the last 10 years Tallahassee has been swiping money from the Sadowski Trust Fund to balance the budget, she said. I am hoping all of our 67 counties will support workforce housing as the No. 1 legislative priority and let Tallahassee know we need those Sadowski funds. The William E. Sadowski Affordable Housing Act was established in 1992 in honor of the Florida Department of Community Affairs secretary who died in a plane crash. The act increased the state documentary stamp tax collected during a real estate sale and channeled the additional revenue into trust funds overseen by the Florida Housing Finance Corp. Ideally all the extra doc stamp money should benefit programs that lead lowto moderate-income families to home ownership, help senior citizens age in place, retrofit homes to accommodate those with special needs and create competitive incentive loans for developers to build low-rent apartments. Legislators, however, have swept out nearly $1.3 billion since March 2007. Fighting these annual decisions is the Sadowski Housing Coalition, comprised of 30 statewide organizations, including Florida Realtors, the state home builders association and advocates for the homeless, elderly, veterans and people with special needs. The coalition projects $314 million for fiscal year 2018-19, noting a full allocation of the trust to affordable housing would create 30,000 jobs and a $4 billion economic impact in just one year. It could result in over 12,700 homes been built and housing for over 93,000 people. Since the recession, more Florida households are renting. Homeownership fell from 71 to 65 percent between 2007 and 2014 and included lowand high-income families, according to a 2016 Florida rental market study. About 32 percent were costburdened by rents. The average rent is $1,900 in Palm Beach County. Southwest Floridas three counties dont have enough affordable rentals to meet the growing demand. A study by Esterobased John Burns Real Estate Consulting determined Charlotte County needs to add 219 market-rate apartment units during the next five years. County commissioners took steps last year to make that happen, revising a portion of the 2050 comprehensive plan to allow incentive density to speed up the construction of moderate income, workforce housing as well as units for those with low and very low incomes. Already underway is Charlotte Commons, a 50acre development along Peachland, Loveland and Veterans boulevards which will add 256 apartments and 119 townhome villas. The countys lingering Murdock Village is also planned for 2,400 residences. John Burns also projects a 4.4 percent increase in rental households nationally during the next five years due to demographic changes, convenience, mobility and the lack of financial commitment. Punta Gorda recently turned over city-owned land and earmarked four vacant commercial buildings to nonprofits, which have created affordable housing units, said City Manager Howard Kunik. Affordable housing remains an issue, Mr. Kunik said. In order to attract working families, this is something we have to do in the long run to be sustainable. As development consumes land closest to the urban core and coast, its shifting to the east in Southwest Florida and the west in South Florida, where agricultural lands have been abandoned and those that arent include zoning for ranchettes and offer the potential for subdividing plots. Of course, a pro-development board of commissioners or city council could approve zoning changes that forever impact community character. A number of rural properties in Southwest Florida currently on the selling block include the zoned 154-acre Coral Creek South on Burnt Store Road approved for up to 999 housing units and 20,000 square feet of commercial development; 37 acres in Alva that under its current rural zoning allows one home per acre; a 78-acre palm farm on Pine Island; and in Collier Countys rural fringe mixed-use district, the 956-acre HHH Ranch, three miles east of CR 951 with a maximum density of 115 units. In Palm Beach County, growth is creating pressure to develop in the west, including the 21,000-acre Agricultural Reserve and the rural central western Loxahatchee region, said Commissioner Steven Abrams. The Ag Reserve was established in the countys comprehensive plan to preserve unique farmlands and wetland with provisions for low-density residential development. The challenges to support development have always involved having infrastructure in place, Mr. Abrams said. Its been a particular challenge over the past several years since the legislature has greatly loosened growth management laws. Because of existing high-end residential in the southern portion of the Ag Reserve, the infrastructure is already in place to support development, including the mega swap of development rights between the reserve and Loxahatchee being proposed by GL Homes. The developer wants to build 2,315 homes on 738 acres in the reserve in exchange for saving nearly 2,900 acres in Loxahatchee as farmland. Its an interesting proposal the board will be considering at the beginning of next year, Mr. Abrams said. GL Homes has holdings in both areas and is willing to give up development in a more rural area. Farmers will tell you farming is more productive in the central western region. Its not a question of if its going to be developed but when. Property owners have a constitutional right to do it. Lee Countys comprehensive plan mentions affordable housing 29 times, allowing for increased density near Florida Gulf Coast University for student housing, identifying potential sites for pilot and demonstration projects, incentives for mixed-use development and forming public-private partnerships. The latter is being spearheaded by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation which has assembled an attainable housing coalition comprised of community stakeholders. Members Kitty Green and Mike Quaintance say policy change is necessary to make it a reality. Were going to have to intensify builder incentives to provide product 20 percent below market value, said Mr. Quaintance, a professor at Keiser University. We have to make it financially palpable to garner support from the private sector. As a college professor I see students struggling every day to work full-time, pay for college and find affordable housing. We have to figure out how to incorporate affordable housing into the urban centers to reduce the impact on transportation. We continue to perpetuate the problem by pushing (development) out to Lehigh. Affordable diverse housing is among the 10 principals the Urban Land Institute touts as essential to smart development as growth impedes on the urban fringe. Of critical importance is a mix of housing types, price points, and uses offering a more vital and diverse community. The need to direct growth to walkable mixeduse neighborhoods rather than to conventional subdivisions offers the opportunity for more diverse housing types. Rental and ownership single-family houses with yards, townhouses, and multifamily apartment buildings are all needed to meet the varied lifestyles of people living in the suburbs. Providing these options, it concludes, will entice those teachers, service workers and first responders to live where they work. Those trying to shape the future of affordable housing in South Florida are hopeful of a resolution, although caution its going to be a long time in the making. This is one of the few times there has been so much interest from so many areas, said Ms. Green, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties. Its going to take all areas in the community to make any kind of impact. Theres no one answer, added Mr. Quaintance. Its not going to be easy. We have to look at multiple solutions to embrace the new economy and what it takes for someone earning a living to survive in Southwest Florida. We have to be openminded and work together to resolve this issue. Affordable housing remains an issue ... In order to attract working families, this is something we have to do in the long run to be sustainable. Howard Kunik, Punta Gorda city managerKUNIK

Besides its dark-humored, hard-times wisdom, it suggests the inextricable relationship between transportation and real-estate, a relationship that determined how we grew in the past, and how we will grow in the future. Petroleum-powered cars are the raison detre for vast swaths of suburban real-estate and roads after World War II. Suburbia is out of fashion but still blankets South Florida and other parts of America such as Denver and Los Angeles, with sprawling oases of singlefamily homes and condos disconnected from shopping malls and employment destinations. To get where we wanted to go required ever more and wider roads supported by business, financial, and government systems that took deep root. Now, the center cannot hold, urban and transportation planners warn. The old way is not sustainable. The new relationship between transportation and real-estate should look something like this: a mix of residences and businesses in compact, pedestrian-friendly communities that offer multiple, connected transit options such as trains, trolleys, buses, connected and driverless cars, bikes, and your feet. One example of such communities are New Urban and transit-oriented developments or TODs, with homes and amenities clustered within a half-mile of transit services. Were kind of hitting a capacity issue with automobiles, said John L. Renne, director of the Center for Urban and Environmental Solutions at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. So, the growth of our region does depend on finding alternative solutions to compliment cars, not replace cars. In fact, planners have been warning us to contain sprawl at least since the 1970s when Floridas Growth Management and later Smart Growth and Complete Streets policies were created, and often ignored by political leadership and developers. So Florida has always been in the vanguard of not only growing badly, but trying to control and manage better growth, said Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, an urban planner and architect based in Miami who is renowned as one of the parents of the New Urbanism, an anti-sprawl movement that began nearly four decades ago. Evidence of its effort to remake suburbia, urban and downtown areas and even build entire cities can be found in places such as Cape Corals entertainment district, Punta Gordas Sunloft Center, 5th Avenue South in Naples, CityPlace in West Palm Beach, and the city of Seaside in northwest Florida. Now with new people flocking to regions such as Southwest Floridas coastal Collier, Lee, and Charlotte counties, an area that could rocket from 1.2 million residents toward the 2 million mark in the next quarter century, those warnings to change the way we build transportation infrastructure and living spaces have become more urgent. On the east coast in Palm Beach County, more than 300,000 new residents are expected during that time to boost the population to 1.7 million. Adding to the influx will be seasonal travelers. The number of people coming and going from Southwest Florida International Airport, for instance, is projected to rise from 8.6 million in 2016 to 14.3 million in 2040. Without public and private investment in new types of transportation and urban development, planners tell us, we face increasingly congested, dangerous intersections, long commutes and loss of the natural beauty and resources that make South Florida special. The question is, where do we build and what kind of communities do people want to live in? asks FAUs Mr. Renne, who in addition to his position at the school is managing director of the TOD Group, a private real-estate development company that builds and invests in transit-oriented development. The research and the data about where people want to live is beginning to say that people want walkable communities where they can have transportation options to be able to get to other places, he said. And it could be jobs, it could be places for recreation, to go out to dinner, to go shopping, wherever. But South Florida is really built around automobiles and low-density, single-family communities and weve separated shopping from living. So if we look to the future, in several decades down the road, what were starting to see is theres a great opportunity to rebuild South Florida to try to create more of these transitoriented development opportunities. And while widening and building new roads has helped ease congestion, it is by itself a failing long-term solution, said Bill Spikowski, a veteran urban planner on Floridas southwest coast. He believes passenger rail will be a key addition here as it was on the east coast years ago. Mr. Spikowski adds that widening surface roads to more than four lanes can increase congestion because it creates more conflict between drivers, and is unappealing and dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. The truth is they (public transportation planners) cant afford to keep doing what theyre doing because its more expensive to build roads to serve sprawl, he said. The pain isnt immediate, but the long-term cost is actually more. It happens 10 years from now when the roads go from congested to really congested. Official county Metropolitan Planning Organizations or MPOs are required to develop long-range plans that look ahead 25 years at transit plans. The most recent were created in 2015 and look to 2040. Among the challenges they and other planners face are creating genuinely competitive alternatives to cars; paying for expensive new high speed transit such as trains and busses; and building transit-oriented or New Urban-style developments with affordable housing for families on working-class wages. Driverless and connected car technology is also being widely studied and developed, but how it will affect practical transportation planning is at this point largely conjecture, said Gary Harrell, principal planner for the Charlotte County-Punta Gorda MPO. He speculates that one day self-driving cars could illuminate the need for parking garages. Michael Masanoff disagrees. The developer of a planned TOD in West Palm Beach called Transit Village, he says they could worsen traffic if fleets of empty, driverless cars are roving our roads in between picking up passengers. Collier MPO executive director Anne McLaughlin says the cars could mean fewer crashes, fewer injuries, fewer fatalities It could be a marvelous change of direction. Fortunately, MPO officials, Smart Growth and New Urban advocates, developers, politicians, and other planners all have plenty of ideas about how to build better living spaces and transportation, even if they dont all agree on how to get there. Heres a look forward at how theyre planning the future.LANNERS SAY WE NEED MORE TRANSPORTATION OPtions that lessen our reliance on cars along with affordable homes in compact, mixed-use communities to preserve our quality of life in a fast-growing region.BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com Getting thereIts about where we live and work, and creating alternatives to get therePRENNE PLATER-ZYBERK

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com NOVEMBER 15-16, 2017 GROWTH 17 ASPECIALREPORT GROWTHA Complete Streets philosophy that purports to accommodate all modes of transportation has been widely accepted. But state and local governments have often not aligned when it comes to policy, and cyclists and pedestrians have gotten most of the attention. (C)onventional wisdom of widening streets and adding lanes is under strict scrutiny right now with Complete Streets and other programs going on, said Bonita Springs Mayor Peter Simmons. So the city of Bonita Springs is looking at all the approaches to not only move cars, because thats where everybody wants to start, but we also need to look at how to move pedestrian traffic and bicycles and walkers and joggers, so were taking that holistic view on everything. Controlling sprawl and congestion in fast growing regions of South Florida, planners such as Mr. Renne and Mr. Spikowski say, also involves greater investments in passenger rail, busses, and the dense realestate that makes them financially viable. With Lee County alone set to welcome some 300,000 new residents by 2040, Mr. Spikowski urges taking steps now toward developing commuter or light rail. Doing so could in turn spur the density of homes and businesses built near such a rail line that is needed to sustain it.There is an ideal opportunity to do that, he said, on the CSX/Seminole Gulf Railway line where it runs for through the heavily traveled heart of Southwest Florida: from northern Collier County through the historic centers of Bonita Springs and downtown Fort Myers in Lee County. The line continues across the Caloosahatchee River, though Charlotte County and up to Arcadia. Mr. Spikowski analyzed state employment data showing how the CSX line runs directly through Lee County job centers, a rail road in the most perfect place youd want it to be for commuters, he said. He envisions the line with stops in key areas including downtowns, transit-oriented developments, park-and-ride lots, and feeder bus lines that could move riders across the county and connect to places like the airport and Florida Gulf Coast University. While it is not the sole solution to transportation growth, Its one essential part, he said, and theres really no like second choice for that. We need better bus systems and we probably have some places for street cars, but those run on roads and as the roads get crowded those slow down, too. This is one way to make transit fast, without adding to the roads. Lee Countys MPO in 2013 completed a rail feasibility study which recommends that the county and state purchase the right of way along a 37-mile stretch of the CSX/ Seminole line that could at some point be used for commuter or light rail, as well as bus rapid transit, and a multi-use bicycle and walking path. Lee County commissioners, mayors and city council members, who make up the MPO board, roundly endorsed the studys conclusion but have yet to work with the state to purchase the right of way. I think certainly (the Florida Department of Transportation) will be open to looking at that purchase and developing passenger rail, said FDOT spokesperson Zac Burch. Like we said, theres a limit to how many roads and how big a roads you can build. Anything to take pressure off the state highway system is certainly something were willing to have a conversation about. Buying CSXs rail corridor is complicated by the fact that the property is leased to Seminole Gulf Railway for the next 30 years, which allows them to use it for freight and The Murder Mystery Dinner Train. The county and state have several options, including buying the right of way and negotiating with Seminole Gulf to add passenger service. Otherwise theyd have to wait until Seminoles lease runs out to use it. Lee County commissioner Larry Kiker said he has not approached CSX or Seminole Gulf about the rail line. But our board, from what I am able to gather, is very interested in looking into those possibilities and I think it would be very exciting to do something like that, he said. The idea is intriguing, its exciting and it would certainly help our transportation model. It would absolutely be beneficial in my opinion. Buying the right of way is not especially expensive; it could cost up to $15 million, the study found, and at least allow the public to hold on to what planners consider an irreplaceable asset. On the other hand, building a commuter rail along it could cost $10 million to $20 million per mile. The Denver modelThe first rail line in the Denver, Colo. areas Regional Transportation District opened in 1994. It now serves a population of 2.9 million in an eight-county region with 87 miles of commuter and light rail track connected to a fleet of more than 1,000 busses with 9,000 stops. Mr. Renne and others point to it as a model for how fast-growing areas with large swaths of suburbia develop and pay for rail or other new, potentially pricey modes of transportation. Like South Florida, the Denver area was blanketed with suburbs after World War II and has experienced rapid population growth. Later, rail spurred billions in private development along its line, and proved an indispensable way to reduce congestion on roads, said RTD spokesperson Nate Currey. Its not something youre going to see immediate dividends, he said, but the economic development that goes along with these (rail) lines is unreal. Like areas of South Florida, the sprawling 2,342-mile RTD was originally built out for cars. We were built on the automobile postWorld War II, Mr. Currey said. Thats how this place really expanded. But weve still done it. Weve built out a ton of rail and people are using it really well. Denvers a growing city and it has been since the s. People thought the first section of light rail we built that we were crazy. No one was going to invest in it, no one was going to ride it. But once ridership was there, interest really picked up. Public sentiment went along with it as well as investment along the corridor. Officials here, especially on Floridas west coast, are also skeptical that rail is financially viable. They contend that people and businesses in the region are too spread out and low density to support rail or even significantly expand the bus system, while others contend that if you build it, the population density will take care of itself. Weve looked at (passenger rail) and well continue to look at it, Bonita Springs Mayor Simmons said. We continue to hear that we simply dont have the density of people on the Southwest coast of Florida to make it economically viable. In Collier County, In the transportation world, were at the baby steps stage, said MPO director Ms. McLaughlin. We just dont have the density to be talking about light rail unless someone wants to bring it here and add a few stops for Collier. But that could change as Southwest Floridas population grows. You can induce higher density, said urban planner Ms. Plater-Zyberk. The transit and development is always a chicken and egg thing. You wait for development then theres no place to put the transit; you put the transit in and nobodys riding it for a while so you subsidize it; you never get it exactly right. Mr. Spikowski believes developers would be willing to build along a planned passenger rail line in a fast-growing county such as Lee, as they have in Denver, on Floridas east coast, and elsewhere. They flock to those areas to build higher density housing even if its not going to be there for five years, he said. Because if its something thats in the works, first of all they can use it as a sales point. Thats why its so frustrating when people talk to me here: well, no developer would Well, actually they would if theres a reason to. The streets and developments around the stations would also need to be pedestrian friendly to gain ridership, said FAUs Mr. Renne, as many people would walk or bike the last quarter or half mile or more to and from home. (The station areas) need to be places where people feel comfortable walking and dont feel like theyre taking their life in their hands when theyre walking across the street, he said. The last leg of your trip needs to be a pleasant experience and if its not people will revert to driving their cars.Unaffordable housingTransit-oriented developments around stations, and other New Urban, mixed-use types of communities that have popped up around Florida, have been criticized for not offering affordable housing for families. You look at something like Coconut Point (a mixed-use shopping mall with residences in Estero), said Lee MPO executive director Don Scott. But those places arent where its that affordable for a family to live and work. Mr. Renne says home prices in New Urban and TOD developments remain high in large part because not enough of them have been built yet, a matter of supply and demand. Coconut Point is also an example of how many trendy developments built on New Urban principles have also failed to offer one of its key elements: alternative transportation options. Surrounded by a huge parking lot, Coconut Point is still built mainly to be visited by car. Mr. Renne adds that if developments offer truly multi-modal options, people could end up saving money even if they pay more for housing. The average American spends around 20 percent of their income on transportation cost, he said. But if you dont have to have a car you can cut that down to like SIMMONS PASON GADDIS / FLORIDA WEEKLYTraffic in Collier County on Immokalee Road and Interstate 75 is just one place that gets extremely congested during peak times in Florida.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY18 GROWTH NOVEMBER 15-16, 2017 ASPECIALREPORT GROWTHRepresentatives from Brightlines parent group, All Aboard Florida, are reluctant to project a start date for Phase I of the passenger train service the West Palm Beach to Miami route. The launch has been delayed from late July, to September, and now, to the end of 2017. Stations and tracks are still under construction, though all five of the trains that will make up the Phase I service in South Florida have been delivered to the Workshop the railroad operations center in West Palm Beach. The three-story stations are brightly lit, with meeting space, WiFi and work areas. Miamis station will have retail shops and restaurants in its larger terminal. Ticket prices have not been announced, either, though officials say there will be a promotional fare to start, and later, monthly, weekly and weekend passes will be available, as will other incentives, possibly through area businesses or city promotions. A spokesperson for the train said the ticket price would be comparable to operating a car for the trip. Up to 32 trains daily will deliver passengers from downtown West Palm Beach to Fort Lauderdale in 30 minutes, and to Miami in about an hour. Trains are scheduled to run hourly from early morning to late night. West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio is anxiously awaiting the first ride. She sees Brightline as a huge addition to the growth of the city, and the region, with the trains bringing businesses, workers, and tourists to the area. The city has been working with Brightline since it was planned in 2012. Im very optimistic about the effects of Brightline on West Palm Beach. I think its really going to add so much to our city. Its good for businesses, and offices and their workers, she said. Business owners shes talked to expressed interest in opening offices here or moving here, while maintaining offices or extending their business to Broward or Miami-Dade. I spoke with some young people with an engineering firm in Lauderdale looking to open an office here, she said. Its the kind of movement Brightline planners and the cities it reaches are hoping to achieve. The exposure for the area will be significant, she said. West Palm is ready for additional visitors coming for culture to the Kravis Center, the Norton Museum of Art or the many playhouses. She also sees the potential for event visitors SunFest, the Palm Beach International Boat Show, and more baseball fans coming for spring training. The city is getting ready for lodgers with more accommodations adding to those already in and near downtown. We have a lot of hotels in the proposal stage, and some already under construction. Brightline is building a parking garage and a 290-unit apartment complex at the station, as well another boon to the growing downtown that has dozens of cranes visible on its skyline. Rick Rose, co-owner of the Grandview Heights Bed & Breakfast in West Palm Beach, is optimistic about the train, as well. Hes active in the tourism and hospitality areas of the citys plans. He sees a significant boost in visitors coming for short stays during Phase I of the train line. Theres going to be two different groups of people. The Europeans, who might not rent a car they are used to trains. They fly in and go to Miami Beach by taxi. And a lot of New Yorkers take a shuttle to Miami Beach and never see a car while here. Theyre going to say, Lets go to Palm Beach for a couple of days. Maybe theyll catch an act at the Kravis, or go to a museum, or an exhibit at the Norton. Those visitors have been to Key West or Fort Lauderdale maybe to party and want a bit more culture or more mature crowds offered here, he said. They will do an overnight or two days here, he said. Already many of his guests come up from Miami; the train will make it that much simpler; they can be here in half an hour, and then, We can pick them up, or they can even walk over. But the real potential, he says, the second group of riders. Theyll come when the Orlando route opens and families come north to go to Disney World, or south to fly out of Miami after going to the theme parks. Right now, people fly into Miami and to get to Orlando, rent a car and take the Turnpike or I-95. They see West Palm Beach on a highway sign thats it. When Brightlines Phase II opens, its going to be a different ball game. West Palm Beach will be their first tropical stop (southbound). Were right in the middle of the route, he said. People have read about it, maybe, and now theyll see it and want to stop over. The potential for longer stay-put vacations, especially for families, is huge, he said. Palm Beach County is the No. 1 family destination on the Gold Coast. Miami and Fort Lauderdale are more for singles and couples. Were family-friendly. The ability to walk and get around near the station is a part of that appeal for riders, he said, so he expects some hotels and some bed and breakfast rooms to fill those needs. Because theyre more rapid-transit savvy, The international folks and families will definitely use this service, he predicts. Raphael Clemente, executive director of West Palm Beachs Downtown Development Authority, agrees. Hes a big supporter of the train system for dozens of reasons. First of all, I think its a huge amenity for West Palm Beach and for the region not just where it ends in the north in Phase 1. Having the South Florida region and major population centers connected with a major rail system is a tremendous step forward in smart growth plans, he said. Its incredibly well designed, and from the user perspective, its going to be a great success. The modern trains, with level boarding, are equipped with wide seats, touchless restrooms, high-speed WiFi and a select (reservation) option for prime seats and food and beverage service. Luggage storage and bike racks are onboard. Mr. Clemente, an urban planner, sees the privately funded train as a long needed answer to some of South Floridas unique traffic and congestion problems stemming from its booming growth. He explained the areas layout. Unlike most metropolitan areas, we are a linear metropolis. Chicago, other major metropolises are more circular with different patterns. Our connectivity as a region is limited to the Turnpike and I-95 and TriRail. Rebuilding, expanding, and maintaining roads is an expenditure, while building mass transit is an investment, he says. Do we spend, or do we invest in our future? He believes the era of single-occupancy vehicles is ending, making the question moot. Increasingly people are making that decision not to drive, he said. Generational or because of cost or time in traffic, the reasons are many. He acknowledges there will always be those who want to drive their personal vehicle, HOUGH THE DATE FOR THE LAUNCH OF THE $3 BILlion Brightline, the high-speed passenger rail system connecting Miami to Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and ultimately Orlando, is still unknown, anticipation is growing.BY JAN NORRISjnorris@ oridaweekly.com Transportation options.Cities hope Brightline transforms rail service along east coast TCLEMENTE MUOIO

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com NOVEMBER 15-16, 2017 GROWTH 19 ASPECIALREPORT GROWTHand some have a need. But the clogged roads are inadequate in moving people efficiently, he said, and theyre only going to get worse with South Floridas growth. I talked to a businessman from Fort Lauderdale just today who was at a meeting in downtown West Palm. It took him an hour and 40 minutes in his car from Fort Lauderdale to get to downtown West Palm Beach. Thats a lot of wasted productivity, he said. Add to that the parking costs and tolls, it makes little sense for one person to drive their car in between the cities, he said, when theres an opportunity to have the system like Brightline in place. The North-South traffic corridor cries for a rail system, he said. And while there will be drawbacks and growing pains backups on roadways at the rail crossings that are undesirable chief among them, They are more desirable than building more and bigger roads and having more congestion. We have to create opportunities for multi-modal transportation. We are giving people mobility options. Its not a luxury its a necessity. Another component Brightline adds is socio-economic and its long overdue as well, he says. Its a chance at affordable housing and economic equality, especially once feeder systems are in place to connect with Brightlines hubs, he said. If were going to have true urban neighborhoods, where people live and work, transportation is critical. When we start talking about housing affordability, it cant be separated from transportation. If youre forced to live 10 or 15 miles from where you work, youre spending so much to live outside on transportation, its not economically feasible. He points to service sector jobs a core in South Floridas hospitality industry. Most of those jobs are in the urban centers, in or near downtowns. They have to get to work somehow. Im standing in front of Roccos Tacos (on Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach). They employ 70-plus people. Lots and lots of those dont have a car, or dont drive. Or some do and wish they had another option. Now, he says, they have a shot at possibly even a better job, as long as the cities step up with connective transportation options to the trains. Key will be connecting the western communities and the airport. We have to look at our regional systems, he said. Hopefully there will be great support. The downtown trolley is a perfect example of a go-between in the area. The city is changing the route to stop at Brightline. Heres a stat for you: 500,000 people rode the trolley last year. They use it to access Tri-Rail, hotels, shopping areas. Now were adding in the Bikeshare program, and there will be a rack there (at Brightline). Hes looking forward to riding for both business and pleasure. I frequently go to Miami for work, and take Tri-Rail. I take my laptop and work on the train, or just chill out with music or watch a video. On Brightline, though, Ill take my family to Miami just for fun, he said. And eventually to Orlando to see the grandparents. He acknowledges it may take a while for people who are skeptical about how efficient it can be versus the cost of the ticket. But that will change once they get aboard, he says. From a user perspective, I think its going to be a great success. Once they ride it, it will be a big Aha! moment. 5 percent. Although there are numerous New Urban-style developments in Florida, there are few genuine examples of TODs, Mr. Renne said. A West Palm Beach developer named Michael Masanoff hopes to change that. For the last two decades he has been working on creating Transit Village on the western edge of downtown, a half-billion dollar planned community on seven acres. It would, he says, connect commuters to the Tri-Rail line, buses and the downtown trolley, as well as offer affordable workforce housing that a city employee or teacher could afford, with units located in the same downtown apartments with market rate homes. The project was nearly green lit this year, but Mr. Masanoff and city officials have not come to an agreement on how much public financing should go toward the Village. The municipalities and counties which get a tremendous amount of tax dollars for the TOD have to participate in creating a better system for their people, Mr. Masanoff said. Having people understand thats tough.How to pay for transitEven if governments dont have the money or political will to fund expensive new transit projects that could take decades before they begin to pay off and potentially cost hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars, in some cases the private sector does. In an article this year for the journal Housing Policy Debate, FAUs Mr. Renne suggests that partnerships with the business world could be transits future, taking some of the risk of a major investment off the publics shoulders. All Aboard Floridas Brightline project on the east coast and the Denver RTDs new $2.2 billion Eagle P3 line, he pointed out, are two modern rail projects innovate for their private sector funding. Brightline, which is scheduled to open with stations in Miami, West Palm Beach, and Fort Lauderdale this year, and eventually connect to Orlando, is entirely privately funded with public sector support through low-interest bonds. A key part of its profit margin, Mr. Renne notes, are apartments and other real-estate the company is building around its stations in Miami and West Palm Beach, areas that used to be forgotten places. The problems have shifted from blight to fears of overpriced housing and gentrification, he wrote. All Aboard Florida declined to make executives available for an interview because they were traveling. Brightline is setting a new national standard for the introduction of privately funded express intercity passenger rail service and the development of mixeduse real estate around the transportation hubs, the company said in a statement, and will serve millions of business and leisure travelers. Denver RTDs Eagle P3 project will cover 36 miles of new commuter rail lines. Its funded with a combination of a federal grant, sales tax, fares, and Denver Transit Partners, a consortium of private investment firms and other companies that will be responsible for building, maintaining and operating the Eagle line for close to 30 years. Everybodys looking at us right now to see if its going to work or not, Mr. Currey said. And I believe that it will. Its a good model. Its going to enable cities to look at different ways of funding infrastructure. In Charlotte County, help from private businesses could be a route to developing public bus service, Commissioner Bill Truex said. (The county currently operates a Dial-A-Ride system that offers curbside pickup service but must be reserved days in advance.) He envisions a bus line possibly connecting Punta Gorda to areas such as Englewood, Deep Creek, and Murdock Village. Near the main road off (U.S.) 41 and offshoots, you could probably get some pretty good usage out of it, he said, but still the ridership is going to be too weak and it would definitely be a taxpayer subsidy to keep it operational without a public-private partnership It would be important to try to make sure we had a private investor on board, because they make sure that they pay their own way. So in the past, transportation in some areas of New York for example were done via this method and advertising and things like that on the busses helped to pay for (it). He added that shared public bicycle programs that have been instituted in Punta Gorda as well as larger cities around the United States could have potential as a form of daily public transportation in growing areas of Charlotte. (P)ark-and-ride bicycle programs could become a potential for areas like Murdoch Village and maybe even Parkside in the future, he said. Ive brought that up as a potential for Englewood Beach. I think we just have to start looking at avenues to bring in alternatives that are not break-thebank type things. FDOT is also looking at ways to ease traffic while saving money on expensive road-widening projects. Suggesting just how overfed our road system is, the state is this fall planning to put a congested, dangerous stretch of U.S. 41 near downtown Fort Myers on a temporary road diet. Theyll use construction barrels to take it from six lanes down to four lanes for a couple of months to see how drivers and pedestrians react. Could it function with four lanes and if so then what can we look at doing? asks FDOTs Mr. Burch. Can we look at adding on-street parking? Can we look at adding bike lanes? Medians with landscaping to make it more attractive looking? Roughly north of Hansen Street to downtown, one lane in each direction will be blocked. Sound fun? Not to worry, Mr. Burch said: If after a week its total gridlock and its horrible we can just go pull the barrels, he said. Or do people adapt? Do they look at different ways to get where theyre going?

Galliano Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.S.C.R.S University Surgical AssociatesWhat is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?The most significant change in the surgical arena over the last year has been the emergence and specialization of robotic surgery. More and more patients, through the internet and social media, have been educated as to the advantages of robotic surgery. Patients who have undergone this type of surgery are spreading the word and giving testimony regarding this minimally invasive procedure through one or more dime sized incisions. They realize that such surgeries result in less pain, less discomfort and minimal scarring. I joined the bandwagon from the very beginning and now can claim having performed over 500 DaVinci robotic procedures within Charlotte County. As a board certified colorectal surgeon, I have performed the most robotic surgeries in Southwest Florida.What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry?Personally, as a general surgeon/ colon rectal surgeon, I am proud of helping the community to face one of their greatest fears finally bowel control problems are coming out of the closet. There are sayings that ring true, such as the reference to a pain in the ass. Patients are suffering in silence from painful anorectal disorders. Incontinence, irritable bowel syndrome and constipation problems are causing individuals to avoid social situations with family and friends from fears of having discomfort or an accident. I offer an ever growing array of diagnostic procedures and nonsurgical and surgical treatments for fecal incontinence. For example, I have extensive experience with the InterStim therapy for Bowel Control, which uses an implant of a pacemaker like device that stimulates sacral nerves, which strengthens the pelvic floor and sphincter complex. The list of treatment options are various including TEM Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery, Solesta gel injections, and anorectoplasty, to name a few. Patients are so grateful to regain normal living without having to GPS the nearest bathroom.How are you responding to changes in the local economy?The population of Charlotte County has expanded significantly. The census has grown by 11.6 percent since 2010 with approximately 38.8 percent of the population being over 65. With increasing population comes greater demands for health care. As a surgeon in an independent practice, I am becoming a dinosaur in the universe of expanding group practices. That only makes me more resilient and eager to keep up with the pace and diversity of my patient population. I welcome the opportunity to expand my practice. I am constantly seeking out the most up to date medical equipment so that I can more efficiently test and treat my patient population. My patients treatment depends on a correct diagnosis. In my office, we have a variety of GI/ GU tests and rectal physiology studies that are available in house to correctly diagnose a patients condition and then set a course of action. An excellent staff and highly trained technicians allow me to service the growing needs of our local community.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business.Diversity: I am a board certified in three different areas: general surgery, colon and rectal surgery, and surgical critical care. That allows me a comprehensive understanding and a vast surgical knowledge base to address any of my patients medical issues from head to foot. Newest surgical advances: When not in the office or operating room, I am often attending national and international conferences being educated and trained in new surgical procedures. The community will see me often in the newspaper advertising my talks on such topics as IBS, fecal continence, hemmorhoids, GERD and gastrointestinal disorders. I pride myself on striving to be the first surgeon to introduce various technological advances to Charlotte County. Marketing: A comprehensive and continually updated website is mandatory for todays businesses. In my case, a user-friendly website allows my patients to review my credentials and gain information on the various procedures my practice offers. Doctors are typically not good business men or women. For me, business is all about staying on the top of your game. Whats your super power?My superpower lies in my passion for surgery. This is what I was born to do. Everybody has a gift they were born with. As a young kid, I would hang around my father who was a surgeon and his job seemed pretty exciting. I couldnt imagine wasting my life in a job that I didnt love. People tell me to slow down because I work so hard. They dont realize that each day is an adventure. For me, the learning curve is endless because science is moving at an incredible pace. Domingo E. Galliano Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.S.C.R.SWHO AM I?NAME: Domingo E.

He completed his Vascular Surgery fellowship at DartmouthHitchcock Medical Center and is certified by the American Board of Surgery in Vascular Surgery. HOMETOWN: Fairfax, Va.Dr. Joseph MagnantDr. Joseph Magnant Board certied vascular surgeon and owner of Vein Specialists (239)t694-VEINttt tttWeKnowVeins.com +65;:,;;3,-69040;(;065b 05:0:;65;/,690.05(3 W hat is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?We have seen the development of new technology to treat veins with medical adhesive (VenaSeal) and the application of intravascular ultrasound to diagnose pelvic congestion syndrome, iliac vein compression syndrome, and pelvic vein obstruction. Additionally, we have continued to witness a surge of interest by nonsurgeons adding vein treatment to their service line. This has led to a confusing landscape for patients who are seeking expert care for their venous health issues. We believe specialists should treat what they were formally trained to treat. Vein Specialists has responded to this change through continued dedication to physician and public education to increase awareness regarding venous disease, its manifestations and presentations, and the appropriate and ethical treatment of the disease.W hat improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? I believe that improvements in public education and awareness regarding the myriad presentations of vein disease will be ongoing and forthcoming. Regarding improvements of therapy, the most significant improvement in our treatment armamentarium in venous disease has been the FDA approved VenaSeal, a medical adhesive for the treatment of venous insufficiency. Although not currently reimbursed by insurance, we anticipate receiving a code for the reimbursement for VenaSeal in 2018. In 2017, we expanded our scope of services to include intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) as we saw a need among our patients. IVUS is the most cutting edge catheter based ultrasound technology which allows precise identification and measurement of pelvic vein blockage from within the actual veins. IVUS is used to diagnose and treat patients with signs and symptoms of pelvic congestion syndrome, iliac vein compression syndrome, and pelvic vein obstruction. We have already witnessed the importance of IVUS in diagnosing more central vein problems in patients who have not had complete relief from their previous vein treatments. I predict IVUS will be the most critical development in vein evaluation and catheter directed therapy since endovenous ablation was introduced in 2000.H ow are you responding to changes in the local economy? Vein Specialists has expanded our professional and support staff to meet the needs of our areas population growth through the addition of Dr. Patrick Nero in the Bonita Springs/Naples office and the addition of registered vascular technologists (RVTs) to the vascular lab staff.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?Expanding our team to include two board certified surgeons focused 100 percent on vein evaluation and treatment. Staying on the cutting edge of new treatments. Serving as a center of excellence and training center for other doctors. W hat are things youd like to change about your industry now? Y our organization or business?I would like to see the medical industry return to specialization in medicine and encourage physicians to practice what they are trained to do rather than branching out into areas they have little knowledge of other than the technical skills of vein access.W ithin the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?We differentiate ourselves as the original vein specialists with board certified vascular and general surgeons focused 100 percent on the scientific and objective evaluation and treatment of vein disease. Our focus is to educate patients, physicians and the community regarding all aspects of venous disease. W hats your superpower? Our staff is our superpower. They are incredibly passionate about patient care and continually strive to ensure each patient has a positive experience. Our team likes to have fun with our patients and make the best of what otherwise can be an inherently stressful experience for patients. W hat will you base your success on for 2018?In 2018, we will continue to measure success based on our effectiveness at educating the community about the various presentations of vein disease. We aim to increase the awareness and recognition of venous disease as a medical condition rather than a cosmetic condition.H ow is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Facebook? Twitter? E tc.We use social media as a tool to allow the community to get to know Vein Specialists beyond what they can find on our website. We want to give them a glimpse into our company culture and showcase our amazing team. You can find our Facebook page at Facebook.com/ weknowveins.Can you tell us about a new hire who will make a positive impact this coming year?With the addition of Dr. Patrick Nero to our team near the end of 2016, we have been able to fully staff our Bonita/ Naples office and are now open five days a week. We are consistently feeling the benefit of his presence and are excited to be able to serve patients in the Bonita Springs/Naples office on a full-time basis.
