The 24-hour fundraising campaign spearheaded by the Community Foundation of Collier County raised $3,917,731. The fourth annual event tallied 2,303 donations, an almost 25 percent increase over last years number of gifts, slicing away doubt that many smaller contributors to the campaign might be hurting too much after Hurricane Irma to donate. Thirty-eight local nonprofits will benefit from the campaign. Habitat for Humanity of Collier County received the most donations and dollars raised, with 372 gifts producing $780,895. All of the participating nonprofits eclipsed the $2,500 matching threshold, meaning each received a minimum $2,500 from a $500,000 matching fund courtesy of the Community Foundation and the Richard M. Schulze Foundation. This years event was a huge success, said Eileen ConnollyKeesler, president of the Community Foundation. We are continually amazed at how our community comes together to show love and support for Collier County. 24-hour power: Give Where You Live raises $3.9 millionSEE GIVE, A17 The OscarsFilm critic Dan Hudak opines on who will and who should win.

COMMENTARYGunsense Wisdom is a hard thing to come by, which is why I want to share the thinking of Sidney Burris, a wise man born and raised on the Virginia-North Carolina border in a little town called Danville. He grew up with guns, moonshine, muscle cars and Jimi Hendrix. Now hes a professor of English at the University of Arkansas, where he headed the Fulbright College Honors Program for 23 years. Heres what he wrote in his blog, Gunsense (www.readwrite.typepad.com/gunsense/), the day after a wacko with an AR-15 killed 17 people and wounded 15 more, in Parkland. After every mass shooting, a steadily growing number of Americans concerned, activated, enraged ask the inevitable and necessary question: What can I do? Professor Burris gives you an answer: The organizations listed have laid out ways to help that will fit both your schedule and your level of commitment. My guess is each one of you has wondered how our country has arrived at this particular place more guns than citizens, more mass shootings per capita than any other developed country, more legislators opining about the horrific nature of these slaughters while piously claiming that now is not the time to discuss them. The NRA and America have a long and complicated history, but there are two mini-histories, if you will, deeply relevant to our current problem with guns. Two articles detail those histories. The first is an NPR commentary, The NRA Wasnt Always Against Gun Restrictions. Heres the link: https://www.npr. org/2017/10/10/556578593/the-nra-wasntalways-against-gun-restrictions. In 1971, a Texas lawyer named Harlon Carter turned the NRA into a conservative, pro-gun, anti-immigration lobby, Professor Burris notes. If youre a fan of the Drive-By Truckers, youll want to have a look at the video of the bands single, Ramon Casiano, that details the murder of Casiano by Carter. Carter is never mentioned by name, but its a powerful send-up of the founder of the NRAs violent campaign, as well as the racism that powers it. The second piece comes from the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership that promotes hunting and fishing. Titled A Confirmed Decline in Hunter Participation Should Be a Call to Action for Sportsmen, it tracks the decline in sales of traditional hunting firearms. Heres the link: http://www.trcp.org/2017/09/07/ confirmed-decline-hunter-participationcall-action-sportsmen/ Faced with this declining revenue, arms manufacturers had to appeal to another demographic simply because Americans have been steadily losing interest in hunting and the firearms that traditionally accompany that sport. The argument the gun lobby made was fairly simple: you dont buy shotguns nowadays to shoot quail; you need military-style weapons to repel the hordes of heavily armed invaders currently planning to trample the borders of our country, our homes, our schools. An essentially militaristic advertising campaign, along with the fear-baiting that provided its fuel, struck home with many Americans. The gun industry began to recover its losses. So lets sum this up: We have a growing lack of interest in hunting, which led to a drop in traditional firearms revenue, corrected by an NRA thats not only increasingly militaristic in its appeal to self-defense but closely aligned with the gun manufacturers, whose bottom line they have made their number one priority. They buy the politicians who will support their agenda. We have learned, sadly, many of our legislators will simply work for the highest bidder. That is old news, but it is always tragic news. In Florida last week, Republicandominated House legislators voted 71-36 against banning assault-style rifles used in the largest school massacres, and others. Rep. Matt Caldwell, R-79, now campaigning to become the next commissioner of agriculture responsible for managing the states concealed weapons licensing program, said the problem isnt assault rifles, its lone-wolf terrorists. Almost all 71 legislators, including Rep. Caldwell, who voted not to consider the ban, have been rated A-plus by the NRA, which has liberally distributed campaign money to Republicans. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, standing within feet of students and parents from Parkland, refused to propose an assault weapons ban, or to say he would accept no more money from the NRA. In 2013 he voted against an assault weapons ban after the massacre at Sandy Hook. Hes received more than $3.3 million in contributions from the NRA and guns rights groups and he won an A-plus rating from the NRA. As the week drew to a close, House Republicans, Sen. Rubio and Gov. Rick Scott talked for the first time about raising the legal age for gun purchases, creating more security in schools and paying more attention to mental health. But none would consider a ban on high-capacity magazines or assault rifles. What should we make of this, asks Professor Burris? Were confronting an unholy alliance between the NRA and the new demographic they have spent more than 40 years creating to bolster a revenue problem. The gun lobbies have a head start, and they are very good at what they do, but reasonable solutions appeal to reasonable people, and I still believe we are ultimately a reasonable nation. We will prevail in this struggle because more and more Americans are becoming involved every day, and they are not giving up. Patience and commitment at a sustainable level are the keys to success. Moms Demand Action, for example, has grown from a fledgling group of women seeking to end mass shootings to a broader-based organization that now has representation in many places. They have become accomplished activists in only a couple of years. One other thing to remember, he says: Voting is activism in its purest form. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Its a Saturday. Itll be a test for the up-and-coming generation. For that matter, it will be a test for the United States of America and a system of government that gets many failing grades because it has corruption baked in. March 24 is the day that student organizers have announced a rally in Washington March for our Lives. Anything short of an enormous turnout will reinforce the craven politicians belief that they can wait out the outrage that accompanies each regularly occurring mass gun slaughter, such as the latest one in Florida, by uttering a few thoughts and prayers statements. That way, they avoid the wrath of the National Rifle Association and its accomplices, who combine intimidation with campaign contributions to those who cower before them. Only crowds that are even bigger than those that attended President Donald Trumps inauguration can begin to cure Americas sickness: our irrational attachment to weapons of mass destruction. Even such an outpouring might not be enough. This is a nation with up to 300 million privately owned weapons, many in the hands of millions of people who feel they must jealously guard them with their lives or more accurately, the lives of the victims of the latest massacre. It also will be a test for a country where most of us have the attention span of a gnat. Our thinking, or lack thereof, is shaped these days by social media, where its easy to take full advantage of our inherent superficiality. A certain president uses Twitter to great effect. Others prefer Facebook, like the Russian government. The latest indictment from Robert Muellers special counsel operation nails Vladimir Putins henchmen by detailing the highly organized ways they distorted the 2016 election. Trump, as always, did some distorting of his own. For instance, he insisted that these indictments did not accuse his forces of collusion. That is sort of true, but premature. He chose to ignore the probability that more indictments will be coming that hit closer to home, maybe even his home, the White House. Trump also refuses to address the gun issue even in the wake of the horror over the Parkland high school bloodbath. His people now grudgingly allow that hed support improved background checks, but hes stayed away from the subject for the most part, emphasizing instead the usual platitudes about mental health. In one tweet, Trump tried to conflate the tragedy and his ongoing disdain for the Russia investigation. Critics charged that what he said on Twitter was astonishingly self-centered, even for Donald Trump. You decide: Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. But wait, theres more: In still another tweet he contended They are laughing their asses off in Moscow. Perhaps they are. However, this rally, which is another attempt to take American democracy back from all the foreign and domestic malefactors, can succeed only if it produces a gargantuan turnout in late March. If it is not huge, the Russians will have more reason to laugh. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. The Russian bot hysteriaIf only Joe McCarthy had lived to see this moment, when it is suddenly in vogue to attribute large-scale events in American politics to the hand of Russia and to inveigh against domestic subversion. Robert Mueller released an indictment of 13 Russians for crimes related to their social-media campaign to meddle in our internal affairs in the run-up to and aftermath of the 2016 election. Mueller obviously isnt a McCarthyite, and cant be held responsible for the hysteria and hopeful expectations of an impeachment-level event that has built up around his work. His indictment is, as far as anyone can tell, rigorously factual. Thats probably the point of it to create a record of an episode that we should want to know as much about as possible and prevent from ever happening again. The Russia campaign was a shockingly cynical violation of our sovereignty. President Donald Trump would do himself and the country a favor by frankly denouncing it. But the scale of the operation shouldnt be exaggerated. In the context of a hugely expensive, obsessively covered, impossibly dramatic presidential election, the Russian contribution on social media was piddling and often laughable. The Russians wanted to boost Trump, but as a Facebook executive noted, most of their spending on Facebook ads came after the election. The larger goal was to sow discord, yet we had already primed ourselves for plenty of that. Does anyone believe, absent Russian trolls on Twitter and Facebook, that we were headed to a placid election season involving an incendiary, mediagenic former reality TV star bent on blowing up the political establishment and a longtime pol who had stoked the enmity of Republicans for 30 years and was under FBI investigation? If you read the Mueller indictment, you might think the Russians were everywhere, not only advertising on Facebook (Trump is our only hope for a better future; Ohio Wants Hillary 4 Prison), but organizing rallies around the country. But its not clear these rallies even came off. The Russians didnt do anything to us that we werent doing to ourselves, although we were doing it on a much larger, more potent scale. The Russians are just aping the arguments we are already having with one other, and the sewerish level of much of the discussion on social media. The New York Times ran a report the other day on Russian bots, in the immediate aftermath of the Parkland school shooting, posting on Twitter about gun control. Its hard to believe that this is going to rip apart the American body politic when many perfectly respectable, red-blooded Americans themselves advocate for gun control, and often in the immediate aftermath of shootings. In a better world, Trump would be less defensive about the Russian investigation, and his opposition would be less obsessively invested in it (at least until such time that it produces a genuine bombshell). We should seek to shut down Russian influence as much as possible, without losing perspective. We arent divided because of Russia; were divided because we have genuine, deeply held differences. The fault, to the extent there is one, isnt with the bots, but with ourselves. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly bob FRANKENSpecial to Florida Weekly

Door to Door or convenient drop off at SW FLorida Airport GUEST COMMENTARYWe all must choose to be a powerful agent of change BY SCOTT BURGESSOn Feb. 14, 2018, the day devoted annually to spreading love, the world learned of a yet another hateful school shooting that killed 17 people and injured dozens more. A football coach, an athletic director and young, innocent students in the prime of their lives were among those gunned down at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.The shooter has been described as troubled. He lost both of his adoptive parents and was in a foster home. He was expelled from school last year for fighting and other problems. A 2016 Florida DCF report indicated he engaged in self-harm by cutting his arms, announced plans to buy a gun, put racial slurs and hate symbols on his backpack and reportedly suffered from various mental illness conditions. In the time leading up to the shooting, he made disturbing social media posts.With Parkland being less than a twohour drive across Alligator Alley, along with headlines of arrests for threats made to our own schools in recent weeks, this tragedy, and these issues, hit far too close to home. When tragedies like the Sandy Hook, Columbine and Parkland school massacres occur, journalists and the community turn to psychiatric professionals for help understanding why such things happen. Experts look at genetics, psychiatric disorders, early childhood experiences, social challenges, devastating traumas and triggers, etc. While often times there are some striking commonalities, there are always unique differences as well. No two situations are ever exactly the same. Many are digging deeper to understand the root causes of these situations. While this investigation continues, our communities, reeling in pain, also need comfort. These horrific incidents remind us of how precious and fragile human life is and move us to appreciate our loved ones that much more. They remind us of the importance of friends, community and religious institutions. People are gathering together in vigils, prayer meetings are happening and marches are being planned. Of course, such communal bonding cant change what has already happened. But when tragedy occurs, a community weaves itself together to form a feeling of safety and give everyone a sense of stability and purposeful direction. Studies tell us that when individuals are able to find some meaning in suffering, they are more likely to recover with fewer emotional scars.These tragedies also need to raise public consciousness about the facts around mental illness. Experts agree that individuals who engage in mass shootings suffer some sort of mental health challenge. That being said, the public might be led to believe that every person who has a mental health issue is at risk for becoming a mass murderer. That is absolutely not the case.The vast majority of people with a mental illness care about human life as much as anyone else and have no desire to hurt or be hurt by another human. In fact, they are more often the victims of violent crime rather than the perpetrators.The real question to be raised is not Should we be scared of people with psychological problems? but How can we help people who are affected by mental health issues? David Lawrence Center is just one mental health center among hundreds in the country dedicated to helping those who have a psychiatric challenge, and help is only one phone call away. At DLC, recovery from mental health challenges is the expectation and not the exception. We partner closely with the Collier County Public School system and the Collier County Sheriffs Office to care for those in need. We applaud their responsiveness to the recent incidents in our community by developing the Keep Collier Safe initiative to make reporting threats easier than ever. While incidents like the Parkland shooting should never take place, the heartbreaking reality is that they do and are happening more often, continuing to reinforce the need for communities to look at root causes and to mobilize solutions. This is an opportunity to advance conversations as a country, as a state and locally, to better support mental health care.We must stand with the brave students of Parkland and others around the country who are demanding change and action. There are reasonable measures and interventions, such as those Sen. Kathleen Passidomo proposes in SB 2502, and we ask her fellow colleagues in the state legislature to pass that bill. The solutions include enhancing school security measures and embedding mental health professionals in schools to assist with teacher and student education on mental health prevention, early intervention and treatment. These are measures we can all get behind. Sen. Passidomo has been a determined champion in leading these efforts. We appreciate her leadership and vision; SB 2502 was filed well before the Parkland tragedy because she knew these were critical issues to address. We all must choose to be powerful agents of change. Lets not just talk this time. Lets ACT. #NoMore #NeverAgain #SeeItSayIt Scott Burgess, president and CEO of David Lawrence Center, co-authored legislation that became law in Illinois to develop its first-ever, five-year statewide mental health strategic plan. He is working with Collier County on the development of a mental health strategic plan, and he advocates at the state level through his board involvement with the Central Florida Behavioral Health Network and Florida Council for Behavioral Health.

We are One set to celebrate unity, solidarityIn the 2017 Best Of issue of Florida Weekly, the Shabbat of Solidarity at Temple Shalom in Naples was designated as the Best Show of Unity. The spirit of solidarity that drew hundreds of community members and clergy representing many faiths to the shabbat continues with We are One: A Musical Celebration at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 11, at Temple Shalom. The celebration of unity, solidarity, brotherhood and the spirit of America will showcase a professional New York cast joined by local talent along with local clergy and community leaders. The show is directed by Jamibeth Margolis and includes Mark Sanders from the Broadway national tour of Fiddler on the Roof. Students from the Guadalupe Center Tutor Corps will be the guests of Temple Shalom as Phil Beuth receives the Temple Shalom Social Justice Award. Mr. Beuth is an author and a former entertainment executive at ABC-TV. The inspiration for this celebration was the show of support that Temple Shalom received last season, when more than 1,200 people of all faiths came together after the sign outside the temple was vandalized. Over the past year, the temple has presented numerous programs emphasizing social justice and cooperation among people of all faiths. Its Beading for Betterment initiative, for example, brought temple members and others in the community together to make necklaces for children at the Guadalupe Center to give to their mothers for Mothers Day. A limited number of general admission tickets to the We Are One celebration are available for $45 for adults and $18 for students. Sponsorships for $125 include the show and a dessert reception with the cast. Additional sponsorship opportunities that include a dinner on March 10 are also available. A keepsake journal containing poems, excerpts from famous documents and messages of solidarity and congratulations to Mr. Beuth will be given to attendees at the March 11 event. For tickets or more information, and to send a message of solidarity for the journal, call Temple Shalom at 455-3030 or visit www.naplestemple.org.

Though hundreds of exotic palms have been imported to Florida, only a dozen are native to the state, including sabal or cabbage palms (Sabal palmetto), the official state tree. Its hearts were once often used to make swamp cabbage, a traditional Seminole Indian and old Florida vegetable. The Miami palm (Sabal miamiensis) may already be extinct in the wild while the shrubby saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) is as common as a weed, its berries or drupes providing food for hundreds of species of wildlife as well as a common remedy to treat an enlarged prostate and other conditions. Out-of-state varieties includes coconut palms (Cocos nucifera), which may be native to Asia, though exact origin is unknown. At least a few dozen exotic palm varieties are grown in nurseries and used in landscaping; $592 million worth of palms and tropical foliage grown in the Sunshine State were sold in 2015, a University of Florida study found. In the cities and urban areas we see primarily ornamental palms planted, said Brian Bahder, an assistant professor specializing in insect vector technology with the University of Florida/IFAS in Davie. But in the Everglades and in a lot of the natural habitat we have a handful of native species of palm that are just as beautiful (and) since theyre native here theyre an important species from an ecological standpoint. They are also an indelible part of our past. The Historical Society of Palm Beach County recounts the history of the Spanish brig Providencia, which in 1878 wrecked on the shore of what is now the town of Palm Beach, home to the many-palmed Mar-a-Lago resort.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 NEWS A11and city their names. On the southwest coast, Fort Myers nickname City of Palms is rooted in the towering royal palms (Roystonea regia) planted along McGregor Boulevard, their smooth, majestic trunks like freshly-poured concrete. Thomas and Mina Edison were responsible for their first planting along what was then a cattle trail. After 1906, the Edisons paid for the palms to be planted along about a half-mile stretch starting at their winter estate, and the city agreed to care for them in perpetuity, explained Ms. Hughes with the Edison & Ford Estates. The city has since planted many more, further out along McGregor, and replaced others lost in time. We probably have a couple that are still I would say originals so that means theyre over 100 years old, Ms. Hughes said. Theres quite a few new ones, of course, because of disease or old age or cars hit them. One of the most serious diseases to affect palms in recent years is called Texas Phoenix Palm Decline, ravaging a handful of Phoenix varieties including Canary Island date palms (Phoenix canariensis) and the state tree, the cabbage palm. First discovered in Florida in 2006 in the central coastal region from Sarasota to Tampa, it is a fatal, systemic disease caused by bacteria spread by a still unknown insect vector. Since then, it has spread to at least 22 counties in the state, including Lee, Charlotte and Palm Beach. It seems that the Phoenix palms are the most susceptible and those are the high value trees and those are the ones that the state (is) planting along the highways, said Dr. Bahder. Unfortunately, its one of the prettier palms but its highly susceptible. Its predominantly in the central part of the state but it is moving further north and further south, slowly creeping in those directions, Dr. Bahder said. He is working to identify the vector, collecting insects from the trees when there is a known outbreak and trying to identify which one is spreading the disease. There is currently a short list of five or six candidates. He expects to pinpoint which is the vector over the next few years and help create management strategies so the disease is not causing significant economic loss or significant ecological damage. While palms are often referred to as trees, they are monocots instead of dicots, making them closer in nature to a grass. Its not a grass, and its not a tree either, said Stephen Brown, horticulture extension agent with the University of Florida/IFAS in Lee County. So when you say palm tree, its a misnomer; its actually just palm. Similar to grasses, palms have a fibrous root system like a thick, matted carpet and parallel instead of crisscrossing leaf veins, said Larry Noblick, palm biologist at Montgomery Botanical Center in Miami. I kind of like to think of palms as being like grasses on steroids, but they are really in a different family altogether, he said. Their grass-like root system is also one of the features that helps make them naturally resistant to hurricaneforce winds. They have a fanning root system that radiates out from the center, and then theyre also limber, said Joel Crippen, horticulturalist with Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach. Now some palms, like a royal palm, arent limber at all and it has a mechanism where it will abort the fronds in high winds. Usually the only times youll see a palm go over is if the ground gets super saturated and soggy.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYEdwin Everham, a professor of marine and ecological sciences at Florida Gulf Coast University, studied roughly 1,200 sabal palms in the wild after Hurricane Charley in 2004. He found that less than 2 percent had been killed by the storm. The fronds from the palms will get shed in high wind almost like theyre being pruned by the wind and that then leaves them with a bare trunk thats pretty resistant to the wind, he said. Although the total number of palm types worldwide is kind of controversial, biologist Mr. Noblick said, he estimates there are around 2,800. One of the rarest, Copernicia ekmanii, which are endemic to Haiti, can be found at Naples Botanical Garden. It is disappearing in Haiti amid natural disasters and deforestation. It to me is just the most elegant palm, said the gardens vice president of horticulture, Brian Galligan. That is one we really want to go to Haiti and collect more of. PALM From page 11 I kind of like to think of palms as being like grasses on steroids, but they are really in a different family altogether. Larry Noblick, palm biologist at Montgomery Botanical Center in MiamiSince 1967, a Swamp Cabbage Festival has been held in LaBelle in Hendry County. It includes a parade, armadillo races, live music and plenty of swamp cabbage vendors. This year the festival was Feb. 24-25. Recipes from LaBelle Community Womens Club 1984 Swamp Cabbage Festival Cookbook are below.Cooked swamp cabbage Place 2 or 3 meaty pieces of ham hock or other seasoning meat in a stewing pot and cover with water. Simmer for a half-hour or so to create a stock. Add the meat from 2 to 4 swamp cabbage (or 2 to 5 cans of the canned product). The amount of cabbage used depends on the number to be fed. Add water, if necessary, cover and salt to taste. Tasting is necessary because some salting will be derived from the meat. Add a little garlic salt or a lot to your taste. Add black pepper, again according to taste. In the matter of black pepper in swamp cabbage, let me refer you to Mark Twains statement pertaining to the amount of Bourbon to put in egg-nog. Too much is just exactly enough. Regardless of the amount used, it is essential that the pepper be cooked with the cabbage. The mixture should be brought to a slow boil and the heat reduced to allow it to simmer for half an hour or longer until the cabbage meat is tender. If the amount of cabbage meat is limited, or if you prefer your cabbage without much juice, or if unexpected company shows up, simply add a cup or two of rice to the pot after the cabbage is brought to a boil. If you use rice to thicken or extend a pot of cabbage, stir occasionally to prevent sticking and add a little water, if necessary, to maintain the desired texture. About two minutes before serving, add just a dash of Tabasco Sauce and stir well.Swamp Cabbage Fritters Cracker Style4 cups swamp cabbage cooked and drained 1 cup chopped onions 2 eggs Salt and pepper to taste Self-rising flour mixed into above sufficient to give it the consistency of mashed potatoes. Drop by teaspoonful into -inch hot fat and fry to golden brown. The addition of to cups of beer to recipe just prior to cooking and the addition of flour makes a really tasty, man-sized treat, often prepared by hunters and woodsmen. This recipe, one of LaBelles favorites, is from Mary Dyess, daughter of a LaBelle pioneering family, the Forreys, whose restaurant, Flora & Ellas, was an area landmark. Variations of this recipe are served by a goodly number of LaBelle families for special cookouts or party occasions. Palms so good you could almost eat them?

Brown, M.D.World Renowned Cataract Surgeon Wait, what?Police in Mainz, Germany, responded to an apartment building after cries were heard from within one unit early on Feb. 17, The Associated Press reported. When they arrived, officers found two men, the 58-year-old tenant and a 61-year-old visitor, hopelessly locked up with a mannequin dressed as a knight and a large remote-controlled car. The men were too drunk to explain how they had become entangled, and one officer remarked that the whole thing would have remained a funny episode if the younger man had not become more than impolite. He now faces a charge of insulting officers.People different from usMetro News reported on Feb. 20 that travelers remained silent for 20 minutes while a fellow passenger on a Ural Airlines flight from Antalya, Turkey, to Moscow used the air vent above her seat to dry a pair of underwear. Witnesses reported that the woman showed no shame and that everybody was looking with interest and confusion. Debate raged later, however, after video of the woman was posted online, with one commenter speculating that maybe the takeoff was sort of extreme, so now she has to dry those.Least-competent criminals Shanghai, China, police posted a video on social media of two men trying to break into a business on Feb. 14 by using bricks to shatter the glass storefront. But as United Press International reported, when Suspect As brick bounced off the glass, he bent to retrieve it and ended up squarely in the path of Suspect Bs brick, which struck him in the head and apparently knocked him out. In the video, Suspect B can be seen dragging Suspect A away from the store. Police remarked: If all burglars were like this, we wouldnt need to work overtime. A drug smuggler from Brazil apparently didnt know he was under investigation by the National Anti-Narcotics Trafficking Unit in Portugal when he arrived on a flight Feb. 12 wearing a set of false butt cheeks, filled with 2.2 pounds of cocaine, reported United Press International. The 32-year-old unidentified man was detained at the Tax and Customs Authority and searched, where his unusual derriere aroused suspicion. An accomplice, waiting for him at a Lisbon train station, was also arrested and charged with drug trafficking.The litigious societyCrestline, Calif., resident Claudia Ackley, 46, has teamed with Discovering Bigfoot filmmaker Todd Standing to sue the state of California, requesting on Jan. 18 that state agencies acknowledge the existence of a Sasquatch species. Ackley and her daughters, 11 and 14, say they were hiking a trail at Lake Arrowhead in March 2017 when they spotted a large figure braced in a pine tree. I ran into a Sasquatch a Bigfoot. We were face to face, Ackley told the San Bernardino Sun. Forest rangers insisted at the time that Ackley and her daughters had seen a bear, and Ackley fears that by not acknowledging the presence of the legendary creatures, the state is putting the public at risk. People have to be warned about these things, she said. They are big.InexplicableFirefighter Constantinos Danny Filippidis, 49, from Toronto, was the subject of a weeklong search by more than 250 people using drones, dogs and helicopters starting Feb. 7, when he disappeared from Whiteface Mountain ski resort in New Yorks Adirondacks. When he finally turned up in California at the Sacramento International Airport on Feb. 13, he was still dressed in his ski pants and ski boots, and he still had his helmet, along with a new iPhone and a recent haircut. But, according to the Syracuse Post-Standard, Filippidis couldnt tell officers anything about how he had traveled across the country, other than he rode in a big-rig-style truck and slept a lot. The truck dropped him off in downtown Sacramento, but he was unable to explain how he got to the airport. He was taken to an area hospital.Compelling explanationA woman claiming to be on a mission from God led a Kentucky State Police trooper on a chase at speeds up to 120 mph on Feb. 10, stopping only when another trooper pulled in front of her car. According to the Elizabethtown (Kentucky) News-Enterprise, Connie Lynn Allen, 52, of Goodlettsville, Tenn., told officers that she was Mother Mary, en route to pick up Baby Jesus, and that God had given her permission to speed. She also said that she had died six years ago. She was charged with several offenses and is being held in Hardin County.AwesomeStaffers at a Bangor, Maine, day care called Watch Me Shine were happy to receive Valentines cookies made by a parent until those who ate them started to feel high. Within 15 minutes, teachers were reporting they had concerns about those cookies, Tiffany Nowicki, director of the center, told the Bangor Daily News. About 12 staff members felt the effects of the treats, which were confiscated by the police and are being tested.

The 29th annual show returns Thursday, March 1 through Sunday, March 4 at the Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track in Bonita Springs. Displays from dealers across the country and more than 300 boats of every style will be present at the show, as well as accessory exhibits to include boating products from engines, electronics, boat lifts, hardware, marine contractors, clothing and more. It has been a very good year for the marine industry in Southwest Florida, said John Good, show manager for the Southwest Florida Marine Industries Association. Now, as the last major show of the winter season and as the industry gears up for summer boating, this show presents real buying opportunities for both seasonal and year-round residents. Fishin Franks Fishin Village will have its own mini-fishing show at the event. The Boat Show will also feature tackle displays with factory reps, a seminar area with local charter captains discussing inshore and offshore fishing, and a fishing simulator allowing visitors a virtual battle trying to catching anything from bass to marlin. There will be a casting tank to show attendees how to cast like the pros, with daily casting and net demonstrations. More than 70 boat lines will feature jet skis, skiffs, bay boats, flats boats, center consoles, pontoon boats, deck boats, cruising boats and performance boats. A number of services companies will be present, from insurance and marine financing to educational information, to aid attendees through the process of purchasing a marine vessel. The show is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 10 to 5 on Sunday. Admission is $5, and parking is free. Children 15 and younger are free with a paid adult admission. This show is very consumer and family friendly, said Mr. Good. There is simply no substitute to see, feel, and compare boats and marine products up close and to actually talk to industry experts about your interests and needs. It would take days to travel up and down Floridas west coast to see all the boats that will be on display in Bonita Springs. The SWFL Florida Marine Industries Association, which owns and organizes the event, has a membership that includes most area boat dealers and marine-related companies, and according to its website, has protected the rights of boaters and promoted boating and the marine industry in Southwest Florida for more than 40 years. The Naples Fort Myers Greyhound Track is located at 10601 Bonita Beach Rd SE in Bonita Springs, at the intersection of Bonita Beach Road and Old U.S. 41. For more information about the Bonita Springs Boat Show, call 656-7083 or visit www.goboatingflorida.com.

Conservancy volunteers host free nature walks at Clam Pass, Rookery BayFor locals and their guests looking to enjoy the great outdoors during Floridas seasonal months, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida offers free guided nature walks through April at Briggs Boardwalk at Rookery Bay and at Clam Pass, both in Naples. In an immersive eco-experience for participants, Conservancy naturalists share information about each areas unique flora and fauna. At the beachfront Clam Pass just north of Naples city limits, a scenic boardwalk traverses a vibrant natural habitat dominated by special trees. Birding enthusiasts often catch sightings of shore birds, pileated woodpeckers and yellow-crowned night herons along the way. Clam Pass guided nature walks, which take about two hours, set out from the tram stop gazebo near the parking lot at the Collier County park at 9 a.m. Monday-Saturday. On Sundays from 9-11 a.m., a tour guide wearing an orange vest strolls the pass and welcomes queries from walkers. The Briggs Boardwalk, just south of Naples, is a Great Florida Birding Trail site open from dusk to dawn, yearround. The -mile boardwalk is a selfdirected nature trail passing through five unique habitats, including scrub and brackish ponds. Signs along the walk describe the flora and fauna in each community and volunteers help visitors identify plants, birds and other animals they may encounter while out on the trail. A spotting scope set up on an elevated observation platform also overlooks brackish ponds. Conservancy volunteers staff the walk from 9 a.m. to noon seven days a week, January-April, except in inclement weather and on holidays. Guided tours take place at 10 a.m. daily from January-March. For more information on either tour, call the Conservancy at 262-0304 or visit www.conservancy.org/offsite/ nature-walks. Clam Pass is just north of the Naples city limits at Seagate Drive and Crayton Road. COURTESY PHOTOSBriggs Boardwalk at Rookery Bay is south of Naples on the way to Marco Island.
BEHIND THE WHEELExecutive business cards on wheelsCars start out as basic transportation, but not everyone drives an appliance. We pay a little more each time to increase the power, luxury and size to get something special in our driveways. But by the time it reaches the $100,000, we expect one more element: personality. It might be a reflection of who we are, or who we want to be, but a six-figure car is expected to be part of the persona we want the world to recognize. Two executive-level sedans that do it particularly well to very different ends are the BMW 740e xDrive and Cadillac CTS-V. The BMW is the unification of two points that were featured in this column recently. First, its a plug-in hybrid, which means it has a range of pure-electric driving. When the battery power runs out, there is a 2.0-liter turbocharged gas motor powering the large sedan. And so as we saw with the Jaguar F-Type review a couple of weeks ago, 2.0-liter engines are expanding their footprint well-beyond economy cars. Plug the large BMW into a Level 2 charging station for three hours, and the range will be about 13 miles. Turn on the air conditioning, and the gas motor will likely need to take over in 10 miles. That makes it difficult to go even from the beach to the country club under pure electric power, but this BMW wasnt really built for us. Europe is becoming particularly keen on plug-in hybrids. A city like London now has a Congestion Charge for entering its central areas, but an electric-option vehicle like the 740e qualifies to have that tax eliminated. In fact, from Berlin to Beijing, many major markets across the globe are giving electrified vehicles large subsidies and annual registration tax breaks. At home, the 740e currently qualifies for a one-time tax credit of nearly $4,700 (Londons daily charge would nearly eat that away in a commuters year.) Plus, it should quali its way home purely on electric power. Thus, the appeal is not about being the best electric car, but instead its about being able to utilize a green image along with the 7-Series international symbol of opulence. Plus, theres a certain panache when telling people that this is, really the model meant for Europe. The Cadillac CTS-V is the exact opposite. Its the American-made, Americanstyle muscle car with a back seat. With a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 borrowed from the Corvette Z06, it has a raw spirit and 200 mph top speed thats irresistible to enthusiasts. The 640 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque give it the kind of thunderous power that even the pricey Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires cant contain in all situations. The result is a bravado perfect for bosses who thinks its a good idea to hang their bullfighting photos on a life-size office mural.Still, the CTS-V walks a much finer line than just its wild side. After all, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is a large sedan thats even more powerful. But the luxury features expected in a Cadillac help give it more credibility than just being able to outrun the chairpersons $120K Mercedes AMG GT. Its also this need for luxury that makes both the 740e and the CTS-V interesting stablemates. The base price for these vehicles are $91,965 and $88,490 respectively. They both are exceptionally well-equipped, but as executive-level persona vehicles, there will be some irresistible options. For example, the upgraded Merino leather will appeal to those who think of this as the true European BMW. The carbon fiber package is quite expensive on the Cadillac, but if the Corvette Z06 has it, then the CTS-V needs it, too. These kinds of options can easily push both cars to the six-figure mark. And yes, the additions are often about adding to the style more than the overall substance. But thats the point of a $100K car. No matter if youre the corner-office greenie or the CEO of extreme sports, your car needs to be a rolling business card.

Sometimes the selfdescription morphs into, I feel tired all the time, and experts say thats when extreme tiredness becomes better known as fatigue. Fatigue, when someone lacks energy and feels exhausted mentally or physically, can negatively impact performance at work, in family life and in social relationships. Often, it is not a medical issue but one that can be reversed by a lifestyle change. People would be amazed at how much energy theyd have and how much better theyd feel if they treated themselves better, says Dr. Raj Gupta, author of Wellness Center Solution: How Physicians Can Transform Their Practices, Their Income and Their Lives, and founder of Soul Focus Wellness Center. We all have busy lives, but there are simple ways to not let your schedule overwhelm you and make your health suffer as a consequence. Stress, Dr. Gupta says, can lead to fatigue symptoms such as a craving for sweets and salty foods, difficulty sleeping and irritability. He suggests five ways to fight fatigue and regain energy: Run on the right fuel A busy lifestyle can lead to fast food or carryout. Therefore, preparation is important, Dr. Gupta says. Your energy and production are directly proportional to how you fuel your body, he says. Always be thinking about what you will be eating later. Ideally, your diet should consist of eating approximately five times a day with a combination of complex carbohydrates fruits and veggies and lean protein. Cut caffeine, add water Research indicates too much caffeine causes fatigue in some people. The stimulation wears off and more caffeine is needed to produce the feelings of energy and clear-headedness. Dr. Gupta recommends cutting back on all things containing caffeine coffee, tea, chocolate, soft drinks. Also, water should be the preferred liquid. A person is recommended to drink half their weight in ounces per day, Dr. Gupta says. You can be dehydrated and not even know it. Stop burning the candle on both ends Dr. Gupta says fatigue is often directly related to sleep deprivation. When you sleep is when most of your healing takes place, Dr. Gupta says. Without enough sleep, your immune system breaks down. Its recommended you get six to eight hours of sleep per night. Get regular exercise Dr. Gupta stresses that no matter how busy people are, they need to make time for exercise on a regular basis, ideally for 20 to 30-minute sessions a minimum of four times per week. Regular exercise helps regulate your mood, makes you sleep more soundly and erases the little mistakes in our diet, Dr. Gupta says. Body adjustments The body can come more alive with a chiropractic alignment that provides proper functioning. Chiropractic adjustments to the spinal column relieve the pressure of a choked or pinched nerve caused by the rotated vertebra, Dr. Gupta says. A chiropractic adjustment increases ones vitality and turns up their energy. He concludes that, Living life with zest, vitality and complete health is easier than you think. By managing these five simple aspects, one can maintain a healthy, fulfilling life. Dr. Raj Gupta (www.drrajgupta. com), who has more than 20 years experience as a chiropractor, is the founder of Soul Focus Wellness Center. He also is the author of Wellness Center Solution: How Physicians Can Transform Their Practices, Their Income and Their Lives, and of the forthcoming book, From Health Club to Health Care: How Gym Owners Can 10X Their Income. He has been featured in US News and World Report Health, Womans World Magazine and The New York Daily News. He has a doctorate in chiropractic from Life University. GUPTA

NCH adopts a grand tradition of academic medical centersNow at NCH, we have grand rounds at 7:30 every Thursday morning in the Telford Building on the Baker Hospital campus. More than 100 colleagues attend, including thirdand fourth-year medical students, internal medicine and pharmacy residents, senior clinicians, medical professors, nurses, non-physician practitioners, pharmacists and even some lay folks all with the shared purpose of learning. Here are a few topics and presenters we look forward to in the coming weeks: ENT for the Internist by Dr. James Hadley Breast Cancer, 2018 by Dr. Adam Riker, chief section of surgical oncology professor of surgery, Louisiana State University Case Records from NCH by Dr. Rachael Pyngoli, NCH medical residency Myelodysplastic Syndrome by Dr. Alan List, CEO at Moffitt Cancer Center Last month Dr. Sajan Rao, who did his cardiology training and fellowship at Washington Hospital Center/ Georgetown University, shared an outstanding presentation about A Practical Approach to Congestive Heart Failure. As Dr. Frank Astor, our chief medical officer, and I left the auditorium, I commented that Dr. Rao would have been well received at Columbia Universitys College of Physicians and Surgeons in the City of New York where I trained. Dr. Astor shared similar thoughts about Cleveland Clinic where he trained. Another equally educational grand rounds featured Dr. Doug Harrington, director of our critical care program, who conducted a learning session for first-year medical residents and a review for all with the intentionally provocative title, Do We Need to Examine ICU Patients? The answer, of course, is an emphatic yes. Dr. Harrington began with a summary of historic icons in medicine: inventor of the stethoscope Ren Laennec, father of modern medicine Sir William Osler and all-time most skilled practitioner of auscultation (listening) Dr. Proctor Harvey. Bedside examination, which can be life-saving in the setting of critical illness, is a core competency in postgraduate medical education. Sharing the advantages and disadvantages of various physical diagnostic techniques including the most modern bedside ultrasound helps everyone learn. One of our new academic hospitalists, Dr. Ricardo Franco, is an expert with bedside point-of-care ultrasound and is sharing his knowledge and skills with our internal medicine residents, showing them at the bedside how best to utilize this technology. As the crowd dispersed after Dr. Francos presentation, a few of us older clinicians reminisced about some of our great physical examination findings from decades past. Now, the next generation will be even better prepared as we help everyone live a longer, happier and healthier life.

PET TALESCat rehab BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationUnderwater treadmills, exercise balls, wobble boards, range of motion exercises: Im not talking about the offerings at your local gym, but about rehab options for cats. Yes, cats. While you might have trouble imagining a cat powering through an underwater treadmill workout, it turns out that given the right motivation and handling, cats respond well to rehab therapies that help to relieve pain and heal injuries. Thanks to their anatomy being loose jointed and light on their paws cats are less likely than dogs to suffer traumatic injuries such as broken bones from falls, but with age they begin to develop stiff hips, elbows, stifles (knees) and tarsi (ankle) joints. Back arthritis is common, too. In cats older than 6 years, 61 percent show signs of degenerative joint disease, a figure that rises to 90 percent in cats older than 12 years. If you have a cat thats middle-aged, this cat most likely is going to develop degenerative joint disease, said Carolina Medina, DVM, in last months VMX presentation Purrfect Rehab: Mobility and Pain Management Techniques for Cats. Cats can also suffer nerve damage, such as vascular or compressive injuries to the spinal cord, or deformities that make it difficult for them to use their limbs. An example would be a heritable condition called sacrocaudal dysgenesis, seen in Manx cats. This malformation of the vertebrae of the lower back and tail can cause them to have trouble using their hind legs. Obesity puts pressure on already painful joints and decreases quality of life. These conditions and more can respond to rehab techniques. If your cats behavior has changed, she may be in pain. The most common signs of pain in cats are reduced activity, especially at night, when cats tend to be more active; decreased frequency of jumping; resisting handling or petting, especially on the back; and a stiff gait. If your cat shows these signs, ask your veterinarian about physical rehab exercises and other techniques, such as acupuncture and cold laser, which can help. Passive and active range of motion exercises help to improve joint integrity, decrease pain and lubricate joints. Walking over unsteady surfaces such as wobble boards and exercise balls build core strength and balance and improve the cats perception of where his limbs are and how theyre moving. Stepping over cavaletti rails improves stride length and range of motion. Among Dr. Medinas patients, a paralyzed kitten gets a workout by chasing a ball and an 11-year-old cat with intervertebral disc disease walks over cavaletti and performs assisted activities on exercise equipment. For the latter cat, the reward for her efforts is to walk into her carrier and go home. Ways to help cats enjoy their workouts or at least relax during them include the use of synthetic calming pheromones in the environment, heat lamps and warming blankets to provide a cats preferred ambient temperature of 84 degrees Fahrenheit to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and barring barking dogs from the room. At home, help cats by providing cat trees with lower perches, steps to furniture, soft bedding and shallow litter boxes. For instance, a long, shallow seed tray is easy for a cat to enter and exit. Decreasing the amount of litter in the box provides a more stable surface for unsteady cats to walk on. The main thing to know is that unlike dogs, cats arent people pleasers. They will do the exercises and sometimes even seem to enjoy them, but when theyre done, theyre done. Dont try to push them further, Dr. Medina says. Short sessions are critical. Even foodmotivated cats are going to get bored. Pets of the Week>> Aria is an affectionate 3-year-old boxer mix who loves a good romp in the play yard.

Expires 3/31/18.Being ill is inconvenient, but its much worse without insuranceI never realized what a luxury getting an upper respiratory infection was until I contracted a mild one a couple of weeks ago. Getting sick is expensive and timeconsuming. How do people who dont have money, insurance and plenty of time on their hands manage it? It all started with me being terrified of getting the flu the nightly barrage of news reports about young, healthy people dropping dead from the virus had me fretting every time I sneezed. So, when I woke up one morning with swollen glands, shortness of breath and a pounding headache, I made an appointment to see my doctor. Im lucky. I have a primary care physician who has been my doctor for a number of years, so when I called first thing in the morning and described my symptoms, an appointment was made for 11 a.m. that same day. Had I not had the luxury of a physician who knows me and my history, I would have had to have gone to a walk-in clinic and waited my turn. Still, when I arrived at my doctors office, I was told there would be a 45-minute wait another privilege at least they let me know so I could go sit in my air-conditioned car and answer some emails on my iPhone. Alas, 45 minutes turned into over an hour for a doctors visit that lasted 10 minutes. She was able to call in prescriptions for an inhaler, nasal spray and antibiotic but Id have to hand-deliver the prescription for cough medicine with codeine to the pharmacy since its a controlled substance (and, yet, you can buy Tide Pods right off the grocery shelf to eat on YouTube the world confounds me). Again, Im lucky the folks I work with are understanding about me being away from the office for hours to take care of my health needs and I have the luxury of being able to drive a car to my appointment and to the pharmacy. Plus, my exam was included in my medical insurance so I didnt pay a dime. But I couldnt help wondering what if I had a less flexible job? What if I had small children home? What if my car wouldnt start? What if I was disabled? And what if I was a 26-year-old Millennial who worked in the arts? A talented, smart young woman who I met a couple of years ago when she was doing a theater internship locally now lives in Atlanta and makes her living as an actor. Weve kept in touch via Facebook and she recently posted that she suspected she had a kidney infection she said she was in pain and running a fever. She put out a plea to her Facebook friends: I dont have insurance, but I need antibiotics. Does anyone know where I can buy some at a discount? A Googled self-diagnosis and trying to buy black market antibiotics its heartbreaking and frustrating that healthcare has come to that. Then again, she had the luxury of a WiFi connection. She later reported that a friend saw her post and shared her leftover antibiotics. Meanwhile, my doctor ordered a chest X-ray to rule out pneumonia, which meant a trip from her offices to Radiology Regional and another 90-minute wait. Then a drive to CVS where the pharmacist told me that they no longer take my insurance, and another drive to Publix where they do, but that it would take a couple of hours to fill my order. When given the $180 bill for the medications, I was at least relieved that I didnt have the flu I had heard on the news about a 38-year-old teacher in Texas who died a few days after she balked at the $116 cost of Tamiflu. When getting sick in this country is a time-consuming luxury that few can afford it means that something is terribly broken. stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org When you donate items like furniture, cabinets, and appliances, you help hardworking families help themselves.

BUSINESS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY | A31WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM SEE AHOY, A32 UST AS AIRBNB PUSHED ITS WAY INTO THE hotel industry, companies that facilitate boat rentals directly from owners to users, a peer-to-peer service, are bringing new options to the boat rental and charter marketplace. Fort Lauderdale-based Boatsetter and San Francisco-based GetMyBoat both say they are fast growing companies that will open up the sport of boating to a wider range of consumers and allow boat owners whose vessels often sit unused to make money by renting them out through the companys websites. The companies, in turn, collect a commission for their service. A surge of peer-to-peer boat rentals arrives BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOSBoatsetter and GetMyBoat are offering thousands of new options to get people out on the water.JPort Royal Jewelers celebrates five decades in Naples BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comWho says advertisements dont age well? Port Royal Jewelers owner William Boyajian was in a downtown barbershop a few weeks ago when he started perusing a 1972 copy of Naples Today. As he sifted through the brittle pages, he came across an ad for Landmark Gems, a company his parents, Sunny and Leo Boyajian, opened on Marco Island in 1968 and relocated to Fifth Avenue in 1974. I hadnt seen the ad before, William recalled with a laugh about the ad that prompted him to reflect on the path the business has taken. This year marks the familys 50th year in business in Southwest Florida. If you think its seasonal now, Mr. Boyajian recalled a much slower-paced Southwest Florida as a young man. There was absolutely nothing in the summer everyone would just come down for season, he said. My dad traveled around the world a lot. When he established the store on Fifth Av enue, he didnt sit there day to day. With ties in the jewelry industry dating back to 1905 in West Hoboken, N.J., it was natural for him to continue SEE JEWELER, A32 William Boyajian stumbled across this 46-yearold ad about his parents former jewelry store in Naples while getting his hair cut.
A32 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSince GetMyBoat launched in 2013, it has amassed more than 90,000 boats available worldwide through its website, said Bryan Petro, the companys chief operating officer. That includes both peer-to-peer rentals as well as charter operators who advertise their boats through the platform. It has always been our philosophy to have a truly great experience on the water and off the water you have to have a lot of options, he said. Florida boat owners have signed up to use the site more than any other state. Florida is number one, the top state in the U.S., Mr. Petro said. The whole state is great for us, but Miami in particular is a prime destination. Cape Coral, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa. Im trying to think of all the cities there. You could run up and down the coast there Key West and youll see booming business everywhere. Boatsetter is also growing by leaps and bounds, said co-founder and chief executive officer Jaclyn Baumgarten. After operating for a few years as a pilot company, Boatsetter officially launched in 2015 before buying out a competitor, Boatbound, a year later. We have completely disrupted the marine industry in creating a platform that legally and safely allows private boat owners to rent out their boat in the same way Airbnb has done it in the home market, Ms. Baumgarten said. The vessels available through the website range from deck boats to fullfledged yachts. Like Airbnb, renters can see reviews, features of what theyre renting, and rules to abide by. Typically, the renter pays for fuel in addition to the advertised cost per full or half day. In addition to boats, Boatsetter gives owners the option of offering a captain to operate it for you. In West Palm Beach, for instance, Alex M. advertises an 85-foot Pacific Mariner Motor Yacht for $5,000 per full day, complete with a captain. With space for up to 12 guests and sleeping arrangements for six, this is the perfect choice for a Palm Beach day cruise or a week in the Bahamas, the description reads. In Punta Gorda, Christopher L. advertises a 21-foot Hurricane Center Console deck boat to take to the beach or play in the bay, for up to 10 people, for $240 per day. No captain included. In Naples, Rand M. lists a 51-foot Sea Ray with a captain for up to 12 people, for $2,300 per full day. Boatsetter updated its website in February with new features such as instant booking, with a lightning-flash symbol that Airbnb users will recognize. It is also working on a mobile app to be released this year. Our mission is to make boating accessible and available to anyone, anywhere, Ms. Baumgarten said. The company abides by U.S. Coast Guard regulations, and works with local officials, such as marina operators or parks and recreation departments, to create permits for peer-topeer use. Mike Bagley, general manager of Tarpon Point Marina in Cape Coral, is not aware of any boat owners at the marina who rent out their vessels through a peer-to-peer platform. If they do anything that generates revenue on their own boat theyre supposed to register with us, he said. We dont want to get somebody thats competing with our business. A Realtor and property manager who lives in Cape Coral, Volker Eckhoff lists his 27-foot SeaRay 270 through Boatsetter for $350 per full day, for up to eight passengers. After renting his boat to seasonal occupants of homes he manages, he started using the website for Boatbound (now Boatsetter) in 2015. Somehow I came across Boatbound and signed up to see if I could get a few more rentals out of there, he said. While Mr. Eckhoff buys his own rental insurance for the boat, he said it is also available directly through Boatsetter. Although he has not made income from the site, he said, it helps pay for the cost of owning the boat. His only complaint is that Boatsetter raised the commission since it acquired Boatbound from 5 to 15 percent. Im thinking of leaving them because of the high commission, he said. I raised my rate and dont know if I will still be as successful as I was in the past. Boatsetter and GetMyBoats peer-topeer platforms are part of the so-called sharing economy ushered in by companies like Airbnb. But traditional rental as well as boat club operations have long offered people who cant afford or dont want to be boat owners a lower-priced, relatively hassle-free alternative to getting out on the water. One of the oldest and largest, Venice-based Freedom Boat Club, has 16,000 members in 29 states with its many franchise locations. The club concept is much different than the peer-topeer, or other rental models, explained president and chief executive officer John Giglio. And the big difference is as a boat club we own all of our own boats, we maintain our boats, and we have a different level of service than the Boatsetter group. Members pay monthly dues for access to boats in any Freedom location. They also offer a more limited range of vessels. We kind of live in the 18to 25-foot space, single engines, he said. We train our members, they operate the boats themselves. We dont want to be in the big boat business, thats by design. Whether a traditional rental, peerto-peer, or club business model, boat dealers and manufacturers have often seen them as unwanted competition, Mr. Giglio said. Thats a stigma he aims to disprove. Our hope is (our members) someday graduate to boat ownership, he said. About 20 percent of our members when they leave the club purchase a boat, which is a pretty remarkable statistic. Thats the stigma with the industry were trying to overcome. Were not competition; were a compliment.

Jaclyn Baumgarten, Boatsetter CEO the business. Following an educa tion at the Gemological Institute of America and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., William Boyajian returned to Naples and opened Port Royal Jewelers in 1992, focusing on unique artisan jewelry designs. Landmark Gems, the parent company, continues to operate as a wholesaler today, while Port Royal is now the retail fine jeweler storefront arm of the business. Mr. Boyajian has also taken an interest in aiding local causes. People dont know how much need there is in this community, he said. For the last decade or so, he has designed a piece of jewelry meaningful to a different charity each year. Its typically auctioned off at a fundraising event to raise money for the cause. Past pieces have fetched as much as $30,000, according to Mr. Boyajian. It started as helping out local childrens charities, he said. Then when we had the oil spill, I got involved through the Audubon Society and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Animal rescue nonprofits, the Guadalupe Center and Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, among others, have also benefitted from his talent and generosity. Port Royal Jewelers is at 623 Fifth Ave. S.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Stock Market ShockThe stock market has been quite volatile recently, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropping 666 points on Feb. 2, 1,175 points on Feb. 5 and 1,033 points on Feb. 8. There have been some up days, too, but a downward trend could continue for a while.What should you do? Well, the worst thing you could do is panic and sell. Any money you park in the stock market should be long-term money that you can leave there for five, if not 10, years, in order to ride out sharp downturns that happen at least every few years. Selling means youll be on the sidelines when a recovery begins in earnest, and youll miss out on many gains. The days with the biggest stock market gains often follow big drops. Indeed, the day after the 1,175-point drop, the Dow surged 567 points.The media is not helpful when it reports market drops in points instead of percentages. The 1,175-point drop might have sounded horrifying, especially compared to 1987s Black Monday, when the Dow fell 508 points. But in percentage points, the recent drop was a meaningful but not catastrophic 4.6 percent decline while 1987s drop wiped out a whopping 22.6 percent of the markets value at the time. Stocks can rise or fall in a single week, month or year, but theres never been a 20-year period during which stocks lost money. If your time horizon is long enough, betting on stocks has always been a winner especially if you have the courage to buy after a big drop. Thats what many of the best investors do. They maintain lists of stocks theyd like to buy at a good price, and then they wait for an opportunity. You might reduce your jitters by investing in healthy companies that pay dividends, because those regular payouts tend to continue no matter what the stock market is doing. Dont let a market correction turn you against stocks. Expect occasional surges and plunges, and know that the markets long-term trend has always been upward. Put DownMy dumbest investment was selling put options on WorldCom stock a year before fraud was detected. It seemed like a great growth story at the time, and I couldnt imagine the stock falling over the next few months. The $15,000 I collected in put premiums was nice, but ultimately I ended up paying a lot more in tuition to the School of What Can Go Wrong, as WorldCom headed toward bankruptcy. I had tax-loss carryovers that Im finally ridding myself of just this year. F.U., Gig Harbor, WashingtonThe Fool Responds: Options can be very risky and costly, especially to the inexperienced. A put option gives its holder the right to sell a specified asset at a specified price at any time, until the option expires. The seller of the put must buy the asset at that price, no matter what its going for in the market. (Call options are the opposite: They give their holder the right to buy a certain asset at a certain price until expiration, with the call seller required to sell it.) If youre pretty sure a particular stock will soar or fall within a certain period, you can make money off those who think otherwise but you can also lose much more than you ever expected if things dont go your way. You were smart to put your tax loss to work, though. General Motors Firing on Many CylindersGeneral Motors (NYSE: GM) stock has been trading at rock-bottom valuations for a long time. The fear that a slowing of demand for vehicles would ravage GMs bottom line has been holding back the stock, but whenever the next downturn occurs, GM will be a leaner and more efficient company than it was last time around. Investors also dont seem to be giving GMs innovation initiatives enough credit.While Tesla currently manufactures Americas top-selling electric vehicle, GMs Bolt claims the second-place position on the sales chart, and GMs production capabilities mean that its in much better position to capture growth in the category as demand increases at the consumer and fleet levels. GM also seems to be at the forefront of autonomous-vehicle technology, having recently unveiled a car for ride-sharing use, on track for a 2019 debut, that doesnt have a steering wheel or pedals. GM shed its money-losing European operations last year, and it expects its 2018 results to be in line with its 2017 results, with new full-size pickups set to launch later this year, helping to accelerate earnings in 2019.With a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio recently near 6.5, a healthy dividend that recently yielded 3.7 percent, seemingly exaggerated risk factors and underappreciated growth prospects, GM stands out as an attractive, undervalued income opportunity at recent prices.

I employ some 35,000 people in more than 25 countries. Who am I? (Answer: Textron) Lagged DisclosuresQHow can I find out which stocks my mutual fund is invested in? R.M., DallasAYou generally cant know what any managed fund owns at the moment, but most funds will publish lists of holdings as of the end of each month or quarter. Youll likely find these reports on fund company websites and also at sites such as morningstar.com, which offer lots of information on a wide range of funds. Dont assume that the lists are still 100 percent accurate. While a fund may have many shares of a company as of the end of last quarter, it might have sold off most of them by the time youre reading the report. Some fund managers engage in window dressing, loading up on hot stocks near the end of a quarter, so that theyll look good. ***QWhats a golden parachute? L.B., Binghamton, New YorkAIts deployed when a company gives a hefty payout to a departing CEO or top executive. Some executives contracts stipulate that if they are dismissed or the company is sold, theyll receive a certain payout, potentially including cash, stock, options, continued travel allowances, health care coverage and more. Many may seem reasonable given the performance of the executive and the company, but others are rather outlandish, and sometimes go to bigwigs who havent done stellar jobs or been in their positions long. A classic example is former Pfizer CEO Henry McKinnell, who left his position in 2006 after about five years with more than $100 million in severance and an $83 million pension at a time when the company was losing money and its stock had plunged. As you might imagine, shareholders dont love golden parachutes. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.com.

A34 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGIntervention needed to cure affordable housing crisisIn free market capitalism, supply and demand should dictate what goods and services are produced in an economy via price movements. For example, if a good is in short supply, the price of that item should increase, whereby the demand for it will drop or the supply will increase as producers enter the market to capture that higher price. However, one area where we have seen the free markets fail us is in affordable housing. For years, the demand for affordable housing has outpaced supply and this serious issue seems to only be getting worse, not better. Why is there a lack of supply of this critical resource and what can be done to reverse this trend? Since the end of the financial crisis several years ago, there has been no lack of home construction taking place across the country. Today, home-builder confidence is at an all-time high and buildings are being constructed as fast as possible. However, the vast majority of these projects are geared toward high-end and luxury products. Very few homes and rental units geared toward lowto middle-income Americans are being constructed. In large cities, it is estimated that 75 percent to 80 percent of new construction are upscale and luxury buildings despite the fact that this market is already saturated. The first reason given for this phenomenon is the high cost to build. Land costs, material costs and labor expenses are all at very high levels today. Builders say that with these high input costs, it is simply impossible to construct affordable housing and still make a profit. Only by producing a higherend product and charging a premium price can these projects make economic sense. The second cause of a lack of affordable housing is the current state of the banking sector. Post financial crisis, banks are less willing to underwrite marginally profitable projects and so are more willing to lend for highermargin, higher-market projects. In addition, the fixed compliance costs to lend money have skyrocketed so banks prefer to fund large city condo projects rather than small starter homes. The third basis for limited affordable housing is that many investors in the real estate sector are putting their capital to work transforming affordable housing into high-end homes. With the lack of raw land in many parts of the country, large funds are buying lowincome homes and rental units and either tearing them down to build luxury units or rehabbing them for the same result. The effect of this is even fewer affordable places to live. The lack of affordable housing has significant affects on our economy and society. It leads to increased homelessness. It prevents people from easily moving to a new location to find a better job. It adds stress to families, as now half of American renters have to utilize one-third or more of their paycheck just on their housing expense. The solution to this problem is a joint private and public partnership. Local governments, even when they have funds available to support affordable housing, often are pressured by NIMBY (not in my back yard) constituents to reject housing units that cater to lowto middle-income people. This often has a negative affect on a community as employers cannot expand due to a lack of manpower available. In addition, state and federal assistance is needed to encourage developers to start lower-margin affordable housing projects. This is one case where capitalism needs a little nudge in the right direction.

NAR numbers reflect shortage of inventory NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSExisting-home sales slumped for the second consecutive month in January and experienced their largest decline on an annual basis in more than three years, according to the National Association of Realtors. All major regions saw declines in monthly and annual sales. Total existing-home sales completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops sank 3.2 percent in January to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.38 million from a downwardly revised 5.56 million in December 2017. After the January decline, sales are 4.8 percent below a year ago (largest annual decline since August 2014 at 5.5 percent) and at their slowest pace since last September (5.37 million). Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says Januarys retreat in closings highlights the housing markets glaring inventory shortage to start 2018. The utter lack of sufficient housing supply and its influence on higher home prices muted overall sales activity in much of the U.S. last month, Mr. Yun said. The good news, he added, is that Realtors in most areas are reporting buyer traffic is even stronger than the beginning of 2017. Sales failed to follow course, however. Its very clear that too many markets right now are becoming less affordable and desperately need more new listings to calm the speedy price growth, he said. The median existing-home price for all housing types in January was $240,500, up 5.8 percent from January 2017 ($227,300). Januarys price increase marks the 71st straight month of year-over-year gains. Total housing inventory at the end of January rose 4.1 percent to 1.52 million existing homes available for sale, a figure that is still 9.5 percent lower than a year ago (1.68 million) and has fallen year-over-year for 32 consecuWEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 | B1WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMCOASTAL REAL ESTATE GUIDENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY SEE NAR, B35 COURTESY PHOTOS

Closed sales of luxury properties (homes above $1 million) increased 123 percent this year over January 2017, according to the least market report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Thank goodness for the luxury properties for sale; they are driving the market, said Bill Coffey, broker manager of Amerivest Realty Naples. Pending sales of homes priced above $1 million increased 67 percent in January compared to last year, he added. Broker analysts reviewing the report agreed that many of the high-end speculative homes that had been on the market for over two years, especially in desirable locations like the Naples beach area, were sold in January. I think we had a lot of pent-up demand from wealthy buyers who waited to see how the new tax laws would affect them, said Jeff Jones, managing broker for Engel & Vlkers Naples and Bonita Springs offices. Once they understood the law, they obviously felt confident in making a big purchasing decision. Januarys median closed price decreased 19 percent in the $2 million and above price category. For the entire market, the overall median closed price increased 19 percent in January. Overall median prices in January decreased for homes up to $1 million compared to last year. For example, median closed prices for properties in the $300,000 and below price category decreased 6 percent in January to $205,000 from $219,000 in January 2017. For a long time we saw double-digit increases in median closed prices for single-family homes in the $300,000 and below market, said Cindy Carroll of Carroll & Carroll Appraisers and Consultants LLC. For January, however, the report showed only a 4 percent increase year over year (or a 5 percent increase month over month), she added. Overall inventory in Collier County decreased 5 percent in January to 6,071 homes from 6,393 homes in January 2017. SEE NABOR, B30
B4 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays clubhouse a phenomenal amenity Strong sales recorded in Tower 2 If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays clubhouse will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular main amenity area, which includes our community clubhouse. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot main amenity area, which opened in early January, is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an openair bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, a lakeside fire pit, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools 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 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. We have the perfect place for all three, said Lodge. The indoor/outdoor restaurant serves incredible meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts. Guest suites that can accommodate overnight guests and family members are also located nearby. Residents also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse and takes them to the beach. Two of the top-rated beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Lodge. They include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and DelnorWiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. The completion of the main amenity area at Kalea Bay coincided with the completion the communitys first residential tower. Closings in Tower 1 started at the beginning of January, stated Lodge. To date, weve closed approximately 100 of the towers 120 residences. The completion of Tower 1, and the commencement of closings, came just weeks after the buildings rooftop amenities were completed. Those amenities include the rooftop pool, which is surrounded by comfortable chaise lounges, dining tables and chairs, and plush conversation areas, the sky lounge, and an open-air fitness center with cantilevered roof that opens and closes. Whether lounging poolside or enjoying the company of friends in our community room, the views from the rooftop can only be described as spectacular, stated Lodge. From up here, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, several nature preserves and even two of the highest ranked beaches in the United States. Theres not another place like it in Southwest Florida. She added, We had very high expectations for our sky amenities and I must admit that those expectations have been exceeded on every level. A few residences remain in Tower 1, however more residences are available in Tower 2. The 22-story tower, with 120 homes, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. 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.

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. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units 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. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2, which will have similar rooftop amenities as the first tower.

PARK SHOREAria #704 $3,125,000 (FURN.) The Useppa Island Butterfly Society began several years ago, when the island donated a sandy and unbuildable 1/3 acre to the care of volunteer islanders for a butterfly sanctuary. Six years later, we see significantly more and varied butterflies fluttering in the warm sun. We find eggs the size of pencil points, as well as understand why leaves disappear overnight as caterpillars munch through them. These are all signs that the butterflies approve of our efforts! Butterflies alight on almost any flower for nectar. However, each butterfly species selects a very specific host plant for laying its eggs, and can detect them from as far as five miles away. This is the same plant these butterflies-turnedcaterpillars will use for food. So, what began as simply planting pretty flowers, has turned into spread sheets to cross reference nectar versus host plants, in the correct proportion, to successfully attract less migratory butterflies, while attracting more that will happily reside with us for generations. Of the many butterflies, we have our favorites. Black and yellow Swallowtails search out Dutchmans Pipevine (which can grow over a foot a day) as visiting butterflies lay clusters of yellow eggs. When hatched, these larva/caterpillars quickly devour the vines dense foliage that has hidden them so well. Orange Gulf Fritillarys tiny tan eggs are found on the underside of Lady Margaret Passion Vine. The hatched orange caterpillars then travel in packs, voraciously eating the vine before curling up into a chrysalis from which a beautiful butterfly will emerge. The most rewarding aspect of caring for the garden is sharing it with visitors of all ages. The Butterfly Garden encapsulates what life on Useppa is about. Creating a place of beauty, wonder, refuge and learning, while relaxing and sharing a space with family, friends and those who wander the island. All are welcome here!

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYIm loving the indoor/outdoor lifestyle at Mediterra!I hope everyone is enjoying Winter Season here in Paradise! As you know, Mediterra held its 2018 Model Home Showcase over the past three weekends. I hope you were one of the literally thousands of people who attended and toured London Bay Homes eight amazing furnished models. Because Im about to finally choose which home Im going to purchase at Mediterra, I actually visited the Showcase all three weekends. I wanted to be a fly on the wall and listen to what other folks had to say about each of the models. Not surprisingly, I heard one person after another remark about how London Bay has perfected the art of creating the indoor/outdoor lifestyle that so many of the people Ive met at Mediterra absolutely love! That was one of the things I immediately noticed the first time I visited the models, too. The interiors and outdoor living areas at every London Bay home just flow together seamlessly and offer an ambiance that is luxurious and exceptionally livable. During the Model Showcase, I was able to speak with Jennifer Stevens, the Senior Design Director at Romanza Interior Design. Jennifer and other designers at Romanza created the interiors and selected the features and furnishings for the outdoor living areas at London Bays models. Heres what she told me about how London Bays design process takes the indoor/ outdoor lifestyle into consideration. The indoor/outdoor lifestyle is a strong point of conversation during the design development phase of any project under the London Bay Homes umbrella, she said. How and how often the space will be used, the number of people the outdoor spaces need to accommodate, lighting, air circulation, various activities, lifestyle preferences, and finishes and furnishings are all discussed early on. From what Ive seen, London Bays outdoor living and outdoor kitchen designs are right in line with the latest design trends that are cleaner lined than the designs of the past. The materials and finishes they use are beautiful and extremely functional. Jennifer shared with me that Naturekast cabinets, a resin product available in a variety of door styles and faux wood textures, are a popular choice for outdoor kitchen designs. Danver by Brown Jordan, a line of stainless steel cabinetry, is available in a variety of powder coat finishes. Brushed steel, Sapien stone, Dekton, and Geoluxe slab materials can be used outdoors and offer visually quieter outdoor countertop textures and a more modern approach than many of the natural marbles and granites that have long been in vogue. I love having an outdoor fireplace and curling up in front of the fire on a cool winter evening. When I told Jennifer that, she said a wide variety of outdoor fireplaces available from Brown Jordon, Cooke, and Eco-Smart are available in modern styles. Of course, the pool, spa, pool deck, and landscaping are all part of the outdoor experience, too. The covered lanais and pools at London Bays models overlook Mediterras beautiful setting. The outdoor kitchens are beautifully designed and finished and the outdoor dining and conversation areas are really spacious. The pools by London Bays award-winning Acquatico Pools design company are surrounded by expansive pavered decks and include amazing fire and water features. Three of London Bays eight models at Mediterra the Bettina model in the Cabreo neighborhood, and the Capriano and Catalina models in the Cortile neighborhood feature pools by Acquatico that were named recipients of 2018 Design Awards from the Florida Swimming Pool Association (FSPA). Thats pretty remarkable. The FSPA Design Awards program recognizes the top designs in pools, spas, and water features. The outdoor living areas at London Bays models are truly beautiful. What makes it all work for me, though, is how the indoor spaces and outdoor spaces are so perfectly integrated. Its as if theres no separation between the inside and outside. The indoor and outdoor color schemes compliment one another perfectly and create an overall look that is visually appealing. It all just flows together and allows the homeowner to enjoy every facet of their home. Im already looking forward to being able to invite my new Mediterra friends over for parties, cookouts, or just hanging out by the pool, fireplace, or fire pit. Creating such an appealing indoor/outdoor lifestyle obviously doesnt happen by accident. Its all the result of some wonderfully thought out design concepts. Heres what Jennifer had to say about it. The continuity of the design theme and the materials included in the outdoor living area design is extremely important, she said. As designers, we consider the interior and exterior spaces as one cohesive element rather than two distinctly separate entities. Were able to achieve that cohesiveness through the use of materials that have similar textures, colors, and tones, but not necessarily by using the exact same materials or colors. Furnishings in the indoor and outdoor areas need to complement one another in terms of layout, the number of pieces, and the color palette. If youd like to see the amazing indoor/outdoor lifestyles that London Bay is creating at Mediterra, stop by the Sales Center. Im sure my Sales Executive, Lisa, or one of the other members of the sales team will be glad to help you. Thats it for me! Im off to the Mediterra Beach Club for lunch. Enjoy your week!

Inventory has been on the rise over the past few months, and while the nation continues to experience declining inventory levels that resulted in a 3.4 months supply for January, the Naples area market saw its inventory levels increase to 8.2 months of inventory for January. The NABOR numbers also indicate a 21 percent decline in inventory for single-family homes in the Naples beach area, which Carroll says can be attributed to a rush of speculative homes sales in that area. Ms. Carroll said the south Naples (34112, 34113) and East Naples (34114, 34117, 34120, 34137) single-family home markets continued to see the strongest increases in value in January, as reflected in 8 and 9 percent increases in median closed prices, respectively.As confirmed by several broker analysts reviewing the January report, a closed sales anomaly transpired in January that, while impacting figures for the month, does not influence the markets activity trend on a 12-month ending basis.Basically, and as explained by Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager for Downing-Frye Realty, a newly constructed luxury high rise in North Naples delayed the closings for 79 of its units that were previously pending until January. This in turn, influenced NABORs closed sales, median closed price and days on market statistics for the month, Mr. Hughes said. As reflected in the report, there were 150 closed sales of condominiums in the North Naples area in January (a 150 percent increase over January 2017). By the same token, because the 79 condominiums sold between $1.8 million and $2.5 million, the median closed price in this geographic area increased by 428 percent. The data also showed 0 days on the market for the 79 units. The closings were apparently postponed as a result of disruption from Hurricane Irma in September. This type of anomaly is why its best for real estate professionals to also review the 12-months ending data that accompanies each monthly report, said Brenda Fioretti, managing broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty. We feel a long view of the statistics reflects the markets true behavior better and helps Realtors educate both buyers and sellers on how the market is really performing.

tive months. Unsold inventory is at a 3.4-month supply at the current sales pace (3.6 months a year ago). Another month of solid price gains underlines this ongoing trend of strong demand and weak supply, Mr. Yun said, adding the underproduction of singlefamily homes over the last decade has played a predominant role in the current inventory crisis that is weighing on affordability. However, theres hope that the tide is finally turning, he added. There was a nice jump in new home construction in January, and homebuilder confidence is high. These two factors will hopefully lay the foundation for the building industry to meaningfully ramp up production as this year progresses. First-time buyers were 29 percent of sales in January, which is down from 32 percent in December 2017 and 33 percent a year ago. NARs 2017 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, which was released late last year, revealed that the annual share of first-time buyers was 34 percent. According to Freddie Mac, the average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mortgage moved higher for the fourth straight month to 4.03 percent in January from 3.95 percent in December. The average commitment rate for all of 2017 was 3.99 percent. The gradual uptick in wages over the last few months is a promising development for the housing market, but theres risk these income gains could be offset by the recent jump in mortgage rates, Mr. Yun said. That is why the pace of added new and existing supply in the months ahead is worth monitoring. If inventory conditions can improve enough to cool the swift price growth in several markets, most prospective buyers should be able to absorb the higher borrowing costs. Properties typically stayed on the market for 42 days in January, which is up from 40 days in December 2017 but down from a year ago (50 days). Forty-three percent of homes sold in January were on the market for less than a month. Based on time-on-the-market data and listings views per property, the hottest metro areas in January were San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, Calif.; San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif.; Vallejo-Fairfield, Calif.; Midland, Texas; and Colorado Springs, Colo.Regional breakdownJanuary existing-home sales in the Northeast declined 1.4 percent to an annual rate of 730,000, and are now 7.6 percent below a year ago. The median price in the Northeast was $269,100, which is 6.8 percent above January 2017. In the Midwest, existing-home sales dipped 6 percent to an annual rate of 1.25 million in January and are now 3.8 percent below a year ago. The median price in the Midwest was $188,000, up 8.7 percent from a year ago. Existing-home sales in the South decreased 1.3 percent to an annual rate of 2.26 million in January and are 1.7 percent lower than a year ago. The median price in the South was $208,200, up 4.3 percent from a year ago. Existing-home sales in the West fell 5 percent to an annual rate of 1.14 million in January and are now 9.5 percent below a year ago. The median price in the West was $362,600, up 8.8 percent from January 2017.Looking aheadNAR President Elizabeth Mendenhall, a sixth-generation Realtor from Columbia, Mo., and CEO of RE/MAX Boone Realty, said Realtors in several markets are reporting that the spring buying season appears to be starting early this year. Those planning to buy a home this spring should look into getting preapproved for a mortgage now and start having those serious conversations with their real estate agent on what theyre looking for in a home and where they want to buy, she said. With demand exceeding supply in most areas, competition will only heat up in the months ahead. Beginning the home search now could lead to a successful and less stressful buying experience.

Creator of modern legal thriller tops SWFL Reading Festival BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.comSomewhere, someone should create a statue of novelist Scott Turow and erect it in a public space because the man achieved the near-impossible: He took the dusty, regimented, micro footnotehappy law and transformed it into something fascinating for us non-lawyers to enjoy: the modern legal thriller. He certainly wasnt the first lawyer to write novels about his profession, but his 1987 debut novel, Presumed Innocent, kicked the door open for the genre. It spent 45 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List and spawned a 1990 movie of the same name starring Harrison Ford, Brian Dennehy, Greta Scacchi, Bonnie Bedelia and Raul Julia. Lawyers for decades since have followed in Mr. Turows footsteps, penning their own novels: John Grisham, Lisa Scottoline, Robert Rotenberg, Stephen L. Carter, David Balducci, Alafair Burke and even Marcia Clark, who was lead prosecutor in the OJ Simpson murder trial. Some have gladly left the profession for the writing life, while others, like Mr. Turow, do both. Mr. Turow, who began his writing career with a One L, a memoir about his first year in Harvard Law School, has written 10 novels so far; theyve been translated into more than 40 languages. Hes sold more than 30 million books worldwide, and four of his novels have been adapted into movies or TV projects. His most recent novel, Testimony, has just been released in paperback. In it, he sends protagonist William ten Boom to the International Criminal Court in the Hague to look into the mass slaugh-SEE TUROW, C26 SEE OSCARS, C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTNAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY | SECTION CWWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 CHAOTIC YEAR IN HOLLYWOOD HAS CHAOTIC YEAR IN HOLLYWOOD HAS led to a fairly bland awards season, led to a fairly bland awards season, as many of the favorites in major as many of the favorites in major categories have dominated the categories have dominated the early accolades.

Collier Blvd. Suite 303, Marco Island, FL 34145 philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com FLORIDA WRITERSHas Stone Barrington come unbound or just untethered? Unbound by Stuart Woods. Putnam. 318 pages. Hardcover, $28What do you call a Stone Barrington novel in which Barringtons role is severely diminished? Some might call it edgy and inventive. I call it an unnecessary gamble unless author Stuart Woods is toying with the idea of a new series focused on the film industry. The central figure in Unbound is a former CIA operative once known as Teddy Fay, who has also established an identity for himself as Ted Shirley. Teddy has been long established as a Hollywood producer named Billy Barnett, his CIA days relevant only in terms of special skills he can bring to bear to suit special circumstances. The special circumstance here is Teddys need revenge himself upon the husband of the loony woman who killed Teddys wife in a hit and run. It helps if the man is in general an SOB who ruins the lives of almost anyone he deals with. Such a man is Dax Baxter, a movie industry climber whose path would be likely to cross with Teddys anyway. In fact, Teddy incognito movie business Jack of All Trades Ted Shirley easily attaches himself to a Dax Baxter project. The scenes that follow the Ted Shirley escapade not only bring Teddy in proximity to his unwitting nemesis, they develop engaging insights about how movie deals and actual movies are made. Indeed, they reveal how careers are made in a cutthroat world in which loyalty is bought and sold. The still-grieving Teddy travels to Santa Fe to spend time with good friends Stone Barrington and Ed Eagle. Suddenly, Unbound feels like a Stone Barrington novel for a while: the gorgeous woman, the gorgeous residences, the lifestyles of the wealthy and the networks of power. It doesnt take Teddy long to rebound from his sadness and latch onto an attractive new lady friend named Sally Ryder. It hasnt taken Stone Barrington long, following the death of his wife, to develop a new, hot relationship with the appropriately wealthy and exotic Anastasia Bounine. Some guys are just lucky, I guess. This thread of the novel, familiar Stuart Woods territory, allows us to imagine the pleasures of exclusivity. However, plot development lags as Barrington has little to do besides offer Teddy advice and favors. As the story proceeds, Mr. Woods develops many characters, often in teams, to flesh out Teddys revenge plot and its ramifications. Its useful that a crime story look into the related worlds of criminality and law enforcement. Thus, we meet thugs employed by Dax Baxter, menacing Russians and someone called The Bear among them. We meet partnered policemen, one of whom has a flirtation with a woman who works for Baxter. We meet the partners superiors and receive understandings about how law enforcement operations work. Among these secondary characters, Sergeant Carlos Rivera and office assistant Chita Romero are the most convincing and enjoyable. The authors structural technique is to bounce back and forth between miniscenes, never staying too long in one place or interval of time. On many occasions, this device generates energy; but sometimes it merely seems improvised to build the page count. Essentially, readers are alternatively focused on and distracted from the matter of Teddy working his revenge. This involves learning enough about Dax Baxter to enjoy his eventual demise and how cleverly it is accomplished, and to feel the mounting suspense generated by the risks Teddy takes. I have been a big Stuart Woods fan, but I dont think this title is going to add to the authors reputation. Most readers, however, will likely find it an engaging way to spend a few hours among the rich, famous and malicious. For movie fans, it will have special interest. About the authorStuart Woods is the author of more than 70 novels, including 50 hardcover bestsellers. A native of Georgia, he began his writing career in the advertising industry. Chiefs, his debut in 1981, won the prestigious Edgar Award. Other awards include the Edgar Allan Poe prize and Frances Prix de Literature. He maintains residences in Florida, Maine and New Mexico. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

You may recall him financially settling sexual misconduct allegations made against him during production of his film Im Still Here (2010), so he voluntarily bowed out of the obligation. Similarly, James Franco was thought to be a shoo-in for a Best Actor nomination for his great work in The Disaster Artist, but sexual misconduct allegations by five women shortly before Oscar balloting closed likely eradicated his chance at a nomination. Speaking of the acting categories, theyve been a foregone conclusion for months. This year is the first time the same four actors won all the main precursors that foretell Oscar glory: The Critics Choice, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and British Oscars. SAG and BAFTA, the British Oscars, are the most important because theyre comprised of industry professionals, and some members also vote for the Oscars. However, this doesnt mean all those nominated should be the winner; below Ill go through the big six categories and tell you who should win and who will win each. For Best Actor, Gary Oldman has been winning all season long for his work as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. It took him three hours every day to have his makeup and hair applied (the film will win an Oscar for that, too), then another half hour to get him into costume. Then hed go shoot for 16 hours. This is a tour-deforce grand slam performance, one to be admired as a career-topping achievement most actors only dream of. Hes competing against Daniel Day-Lewis (going for a record-tying fourth Best Actor win) for Phantom Thread, Daniel Kaluuya for Get Out, Denzel Washington with his ninth career nomination for Roman J. Israel, and the tremendous Timothee Chalamet for Call Me By Your Name. Will win: Oldman. Should win: Oldman. Similarly, Frances McDormand is the strong favorite for her force-of-nature turn as an angry, grieving mother in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. She is phenomenal here, and if/when she wins it will be her second Best Actress Oscar after Fargo (1996). Her opposition is Sally Hawkins from The Shape of Water, Margot Robbie for I, Tonya, Saoirse Ronan for Lady Bird and Meryl Streep, with her 21st career nomination, for The Post. Will win: McDormand. Should win: McDormand. Sam Rockwell has been on a streak of Supporting Actor wins for Three Billboards, and many expect the streak to continue. To win hell have to defeat his co-star from the film, Woody Harrelson, who brought much-needed humor and poignancy to the story. Also nominated are Christopher Plummer for All the Money in the World, Richard Jenkins for The Shape of Water, and Willem Dafoe for The Florida Project. Will win: Rockwell. Should win: Harrelson. If theres an upset to be had in the acting races, its in Supporting Actress Allison Janney is the favorite for her unforgettable work as Tonya Hardings mother in I, Tonya, and shes campaigning hard to add an Oscar to her stash of seven Emmys. She faces stiff competition from Laurie Metcalf as a struggling mother in Lady Bird, as well as Lesley Manville in Phantom Thread, Octavia Spencer in The Shape of Water, and Mary J. Blige in Mudbound. Will win: Janney. Should win: Janney. The Shape of Water director Guillermo Del Toro won the Golden Globe, Directors Guild and BAFTA, so hes a lock for Best Director. The film is bold, visionary, and given that its about a woman who falls in love with a sea creature, yes, a bit strange. But its also beautifully made and wholly impressive. Christopher Nolans accomplishment with Dunkirk was so technically proficient in terms of sound and editing that its truly a filmmaking marvel. Greta Gerwig is only the fifth woman in Oscar history to be nominated for Director; only Kathryn Bigelow has won (for The Hurt Locker in 2009). Similarly, Jordan Peele is only the fifth African-American to be nominated for Director; no African-American has ever won. Paul Thomas Anderson rounds out the five nominees for Phantom Thread. Will win: Del Toro. Should win: Nolan. Thankfully, the most prestigious category of the night is also the most competitive. The early awards split fairly evenly among three of the Best Picture nominees: Get Out, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards. Get Out won the Writers Guild, which Moonlight also won last year on its way to taking Picture. The Shape of Water won the Producers Guild and DGA, but was not nominated for the SAG Ensemble won by Three Billboards; the last film to win Picture without at least a SAG Ensemble nomination was Braveheart in 1995. Three Billboards also won the BAFTA, but it doesnt have a Director Oscar nomination, which can be a kiss of death: Only four films in 89 years of Oscars have won Picture without a Director nomination, the last being Argo in 2012. Could another film slip in for an upset? Call Me by Your Name will likely win Adapted Screenplay; Darkest Hour will win Best Actor and Makeup; Dunkirks eight nominations are the second most this year; Lady Bird could ride the #MeToo movement to victory; Phantom Thread came out of nowhere the morning of the nominations, and could do so again when it matters most; and The Post was made by Hollywood heavyweights (Spielberg, Streep, Hanks). Its a tough call, so Im going with my No. 1 film of 2017, Three Billboards, to win it all. Will win: Three Billboards. Should win: Three Billboards.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 COLLECTORS CORNER A find that offers more than a whiff of whimsy scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org If there was one thing you could say about Ann Humphries, it was this: You knew exactly where she was and what she was doing. Ann had an instantly recognizable voice it was a Southern cackle that carried well above the din of any meeting or show she was attending. She also was one of my mothers dearest friends. Ann had a fine doll and toy collection, and the historic Bonita Springs home she shared with her husband, whom we called Shot, was stuffed to capacity. She also was a keen artist and seamstress who could clothe antique dolls in costumes you would swear were authentic originals she was that good. Ann had more than bit a knowledge of just about everything, and always was happy to share it. Oh, how we loved her. One of the things she owned that always fascinated me was a porcelain jar in the shape of a babys head. The baby had a pacifier in its smiling mouth. It had laughing eyes and curly blond hair peeked around its bonnet, the top of which lifted off to reveal a container. Ann assured me it was a pacifier holder and would have been an accessory in a babys nursery. At the time, I had no reason to think otherwise. But, bless Anns heart, even experts can learn a thing or two. I now know it was a humidor for storing tobacco a damp sponge would have been placed inside the lid that formed the top of the babys bonnet to keep the tobacco moist. The piece was old even then, dating from the 1880s or so, and almost certainly was made in Germany by one of the companies that also made dolls heads, hence Anns interest in the jar. Victorian consumers loved whimsy Ive seen humidors in the shape of dogs, sleeping children in highchairs (the kid lifts off) and racecar drivers. The humidors were an opportunity Bought: Great Stuff, 901 George Bush Blvd. (Northeast Eighth Street), Delray Beach; 561-243-0010. Paid: $45 The Skinny: I first questioned whether this bisque humidor in the shape of a childs head actually was a humidor because, at 3 inches high, it was smaller than most Ive seen. But my friend, Jacksonville antiques dealer Jim Antone, confirmed that it is indeed a petite humidor, designed to hold a moistened sponge in its hat. It bears no markings, but was made in Germany, probably around 1890 by Heubach, which was known for its dolls, piano babies and other figures and utilitarian items. At one time, this humidor would have been priced around $200. Prices for pieces such as these have fallen as the next generation of collectors has shunned these pieces of whimsy.

THE FIND:A bisque Victorian humidorSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYThis handpainted Victorian bisque porcelain humidor is pictured larger than its actual size of about 3 inches high. Its unmarked, but possibly was made by the Heubach company of Germany. BONITA SPRINGS HISTORICAL SOCIETYAnn and Hudon Shot Humphries stand at the rear of their home, which was donated after Anns death in 2010 to the Bonita Springs Historical Society. The building now is known as the McSwain/Humphries House. for the middle-class to have a little bit of beauty in their lives. Its so like Ann to have that little bit of vintage wit and whimsy. I think of her and her generous spirit whenever I see one of the pieces. Its a nice memory to have.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 1-7, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYMafia madness in Naples at Gulfshore PlayhouseWhat do you do when you attend a comedy but dont laugh? Is it the fault of the actors? The playwright? Just an off night? Has my sense of humor gone on vacation or into hibernation for the winter? I pondered all those questions on my drive home from seeing Scapino at Gulfshore Playhouse the other night. Id been looking forward to the production. Others have adapted Molieres classic Scapin and called it Scapino. This adaptation, in its world premiere, is by Jeffrey Binder, Gulfshore Playhouse associate artistic director, and is conceived and directed by Zaljko Djukic. I have great respect for Mr. Binder and his comedic acting. I love seeing him on stage. But despite my immense desire to laugh, Scapino failed to tickle my funny bone. Advertising for the play claims: The funniest family comedy since The Godfather! and youll laugh so hard, your bada-boom will be sleeping with the fishes. But the play left me feeling disappointed, rather than giddy from too much laughter. Mr. Binder has moved the 17th century French play from Naples, Italy, to Naples, Fla. The heads of two Mafia families Don Albert (Gerrit Vandermeer) and Don Geronte (Larry Paulsen) have decided to mend the rift between the families by having Don Alberts son, Octavio (Jack Berenholtz) marry Don Gerontes daughter. But while the fathers are away (taking care of business in the Keys, I believe), Octavio falls in love with Chloe (Monica Rae Summers Gonzalez) and marries her in a flash. Besides, he reasons, hes never seen Don Gerontes daughter and has no clue what shes like. Hes madly in lust with Chloe. And she has fallen for him, too. Curse my irresistible manliness, he says, one of the few lines that made me laugh out loud. Now he and his personal assistant, Sylvester (Phillip Taratula) are scared Octavios father will kill them both when he returns. They turn to Scapino (Mr. Binder) for help. I can twist the truth like a pretzel, he tells them, explaining, Im a lawyer. (However, hes a disbarred one, due to the time he spent in prison.) He presents himself as a fixer who can smooth things over with the fathers. Of course, he plans to do so for his own advantage. Mr. Berenholtz plays Octavio with slack-jawed simplicity, a young man who knows nothing but his own desires. You suspect he may have fallen in love because his best friend Leo (Grayson Powell), a surfer/stoner kind of guy with no more brain cells than Octavio, has recently become involved with a girl, Feather (Jade Radford). Leo happens to be Don Gerontes son. Chloe is a whining, spoiled princess, all false nails and oversized golden purse. Feather, raised by hippies near Woodstock, talks of crystals and auras and fighting the patriarchy. Mr. Binder has updated the characters and transported them to current times. There are references to Starbucks, Lollapalooza, mansplaining and VW vans. But the humor too often falls short. Weve seen these scenarios before: dimwitted Mafiosos. New-Age type women. (Though Ms. Radford does give a strong performance, despite her characters stereotypes.) Mr. Binder plays Scapino as dapper and slick; his best moments are when he has long, rambling, tongue-twisting monologues, just lines and lines of clever speech. His character is at his best when hes fast-talking. I wouldve welcomed more word play and less slapstick. And Mr. Taratula, as S ylvester, stands out, his character growing more and more anxious as the action progresses. The actor also manages to rise above the material, or somehow make the most of it. (And he looks like Gene Hackman in The French Connection, complete with the porkpie hat.) Mr. Taratula was recently in The Hound of the Baskervilles at Gulfshore Playhouse, but unfortunately, Scapino doesnt match that productions humor. This play is silly and goofy, in a Jim Carey/Adam Sandler kind of way. If thats your level of humor, then you should love Scapino. (Sample scene: Chloe telling Octavio, Come here, only to repeatedly reject him and tell him to go away. Sample dialogue: Chloe saying, Love is a bummer. What a disappointment after Scapinos lovely rivers of word play.) The play is just all over the place, comedically. It aims at madcap but is merely silly and goofy. Im surprised they didnt use cartoon sound effects. There are a few moments when the characters begin dancing, and that has a lovely absurd effect. I only wish that absurdity had been evident throughout. The costumes by Natasha Dukich (with assistance by the Milwaukee Repertory Theater) are outstanding, particularly the ones at the end. Patrons left the theater raving about them. Kurtis Boetcher has created a simple set, with a lone palm tree and a blue backdrop with white fluffy clouds. There is also a series of three white borders that frame the action. Jimmy Lawlors lighting does wonderful things to this minimalist set, changing the tenor of the sky. For those familiar with Molieres original script, Mr. Binders adaptation might be more amusing, as youre aware of how hes changed and updated it while adhering to the skeleton of the play. Gulfshore Playhouse had a terrific production of The Liar a few seasons ago, adapted and updated by David Ives. It was a stellar theatrical experience, mixing old dialogue with modern references, chock full of clever word play and dialogue. The characters dressed in glam rock star costumes, and even though they were archetypes, we believed in them as people. I had hoped Scapino would be every bit as good as The Liar. Mr. Binder does have some great moments and clever dialogue. And the audience did chuckle more than I did. (One of the funniest moments was unplanned: A woman in the front row, given an opportunity to hit one of the Mafia dons with a rolled-up magazine, gave him such a good hard whack you could hear it in the back rows. Wow. Are you upset youre missing Dancing With the Stars? Mr. Binder ad-libbed.) But it was not, as Id hoped, an uproarious evening.

If you believe in it, then it has worth and is, therefore, worth staying with. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You could have some problems with doubters who dont share your enthusiasm for that new project youre supporting. But use the facts to win them over to your side. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Someone is impressed by how you managed to get your case to the right people, despite attempts to keep you on the outside looking in. Expect to hear more about this. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good for you your gift for seeing both sides of a dispute helps cool down a potentially explosive workplace situation. Some family-related tensions also begin to ease. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your determination to prove yourself is put to the test by midweek. Counting all the positive factors you have going for you will help you get over your self-doubt. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Several co-workers are still determined to resist coming over to your side. But dont let that stop you from presenting your proposal to the people who count. Stay the course. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might prefer to be taken on faith and not have to prove yourself. But the truth is, you need to offer more facts if you hope to persuade people to accept what you say. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A family situation takes an unwelcome turn. While others might be looking around for answers, youll soon sort it all out logically, and the matter will be resolved.

But your reputation and your colleagues long-standing faith in you saves the day. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) An unexpected change of plans forces you to come up with an alternative by the end of the week. Look for colleagues to offer valuable suggestions. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Nothing upsets the Goat as much as broken promises. But before you vent your anger, consider that this could ultimately prove to be a blessing in disguise. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An old workplace problem you thought you had solved for good resurfaces. But this time, co-workers will take a more active role in helping you deal with it.

CAR SERVICE You deserve our elevated service. CONTRACT BRIDGEAn honorable decisionBY STEVE BECKERHow to make the most effective use of your honor cards is an important concern on almost every deal you encounter. Electing to play or withhold an honor card may be the key to making or breaking the contract. For example, take this deal where West led the eight of hearts against three notrump. Declarer very properly covered the eight with dummys ten, and East now had to decide which heart to play. After considerable thought, he chose to cover the ten with the queen. This play would have proven eminently successful if South had taken the trick with the king. In that case, whenever declarer tried to score his ninth trick by leading a club toward the king, West would rise with the ace and return a heart, allowing East to run his hearts. But South also had a decision to make at trick one, and he very smartly refused to win the first trick with the king, thereby gumming up the EastWest defense. After the queen held, there was no way to stop South from scoring three spades, four diamonds, a heart and a club for a total of nine tricks. Subsequent analysis revealed that if East had allowed dummys ten to win the opening trick, retaining both his ace and queen, he would have fared much better. When West later gained the lead with the ace of clubs, his heart return would have sunk the contract. In refusing to play either of his honors at trick one, East should conclude that defensive prospects are very poor unless he can run his hearts, and that this can occur only if West has another heart to lead. Once East credits West with a second heart, the play of the six or nine on the opening trick requesting a later continuation is clearly correct. t-michaels.comSunday-Thursday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. 4050 Gulf Shore Boulevard North Take US 41 to Park ShoreReservations Taken 239.261.0622 WATERFRONT DINING IN VENETIAN VILLAGE Make you reservations today for the best waterfront view in Naples!

The show will be audio described and signed, with 15 headsets available for visually impaired patrons and a section of seating held for hearing impaired patrons. According to the American Council of the Blind, audio description involves the accessibility of the visual images of theater, television, movies and other art forms for people who are blind, have low vision or who are otherwise visually impaired. Provided at no additional charge to the patron, the narration service guides the listener through the presentation with concise, objective descriptions of scenes, settings, costumes, body language, and sight gags, all slipped in between portions of dialogue. Stephen Hooper, last seen in Florida Reps production of Angry Men, will be the audio describer present for this performance. Two signers from the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Center of Fort Myers will interpret in sign language. We are very appreciative to the Alliance for the Arts and to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Center of Fort Myers for helping to make this possible, says Brendan Powers, community outreach coordinator at Florida Rep. It is a wonderfully rewarding collaboration. William Gibosns The Miracle Worker tells the inspiring true story of how a determined teacher was able to save young Helen Keller from her isolated silence. Just before the turn of the 20th century, desperate for help, the Keller family hires a young woman to help their blind and deaf daughter learn to communicate with the outside world. Annie Sullivan sees that Helen is more than a violent child trapped behind a wall, and against tremendous odds, she frees Helens spirit and opens her mind. The Florida Repertory Theatre production, which ends its run on March 7, stars Betsy Hogg as Annie Sullivan and Liza Jayne Longenhagen as Helen.

ABBA SALUTELY 70S CELEBRITY EXTRAGoods news about Famous in Love BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Last year I was really into this show about a group of friends trying to make it in Hollywood, and one of the girls lands the lead role in blockbuster YA fantasy movie. Can you tell me what that was called and if/when it will be back? Rhiannon G., via emailA: You are thinking of Famous in Love, w hich airs on Freeform. Ive just learned it will be back for its second season at 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 4. Theres time to catch up before the premiere, either on Netflix or On Demand, which I highly recommend because this is a fun, enticing and completely bingeable series. Based on the novel by Rebecca Serle, it follows ordinary college student Paige (Bella Thorne), who got her big break after auditioning for the starring role in a Hollywood blockbuster, and her friends and co-stars as they navigate the bumpy waters of stardom and fame. The show also stars Carter Jenkins, Charlie DePew, Georgie Flores, Niki Koss, Pepi Sonuga, Keith Powers and Perrey Reeves. Q: You wrote some time ago that Timeless had been canceled but then, in a rarity, was un-canceled by NBC. I keep looking for its premiere but havent seen anything about it. Margaret H., Madison, Wis.A: Dont worry: The network powers that be have not gone back on their word. The exciting time-travel fantasy series that stars Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett and Goran Visnjic makes its season-two premiere at 10 p.m. Sunday, March 11. The first episode has Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus traveling back to World War I, where a new character is introduced: Nicolas Keynes plays an injured American soldier who seems helpless at first but is more formidable than he seems, according to producers. This season also will visit the Salem Witch Trials and Hollywood in the 1940s. Q: Is it true that there's a sequel to March of the Penguins? Bobbie F., via emailA: Yes! Premiering exclusively March 23 on Hulu, the second installment of the Oscar-winning documentary offers the tale of a father and son as they embark on their first journey together and overcome unimaginable challenges along the way. Like the original film, March of the Penguins 2: The Next Step is narrated by Morgan Freeman and promises to continue to tug on the heartstrings.

Mr. Turow takes the stage at 1:20 p.m. Saturday, March 3, at the Fort Myers Regional Library as part of the Southwest Florida Reading Festival. The free festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Other authors attending include Jessica Shattuck (The Women in the Castle), Janet Beard (The Atomic City Girls) and Alex Berenson (The Deceivers). Mr. Turow, a Chicago native, is avoiding his hometowns frigid temperatures and snowstorms by working on his 11th novel in Naples. Well be back next year as well, he said, adding he and his wife are drifting toward becoming permanent residents; that will happen slowly. Theyre enjoying it tremendously, he says. His work in progress, The Last Trial, deals with the pharmaceutical industry. Hes usually up by 7 a.m. After his morning coffee and a look at the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune, he begins writing. I dont set specific number limits on what Im writing, but I have in mind something Ive got to do every day, he said. Right now, theres something I wrote yesterday that I want to move to another spot in the novel. Also, theres some research I started to do last week Its pretty freeform, but its purposeful, he adds about this daily writing routine. I always keep in mind what (teacher and writer) Wally Stegner told me: If you put your behind in a chair every day, youre going to get somewhere in a novel, and if you dont, you wont. A lot of life is showing up, and thats true in writing a novel as well.Sweet successMr. Turow wrote much of his first novel, Presumed Innocent, by hand on the morning commuter train every day. I stopped because I couldnt figure out the ending, he said. Then back in I bought one of the first personal computers: a portable computer that weighed only 40 pounds. A Columbia. It had been used by the U.S. Postal Service. It was the size of a suitcase. He wrote the ending of Presumed Innocent on floppy discs, finishing it in the summer of 1986. Then he left the U.S. Attorneys office, where he had his first job as a lawyer, and had a three-month break from the law before he would start his new job. I knew I could work on (Presumed Innocent) a little more and make it perfect, or paint the porch I could always look at the porch and think I accomplished something. So I painted the porch. Nevertheless, his first novel was an unmitigated success around the world. That success, he said, was a stupendous change for a guy writing in his basement and on the morning commuter train I was 38. I said to myself, Dont make any hasty changes. He always enjoyed being a lawyer, and his partners were flexible, willing to let him be a part-time partner. I owe a large debt to the women who had come before me, he said. My firm was one of the first to allow part-time partners, to let women who had kids work three-quarter time. So they didnt freak out when I said I wanted to be a part-time partner as well. Even the windfall from writing didnt lure him away from the law. When money fell from the sky with Presumed Innocent, I thought I was incredibly rich, he says. Then I signed the contract for the second novel I remember thinking Id never going to have to work another day in my life. I was financially independent I was making 40 times what I was making as a lawyer. But I still wanted to practice law. Very few people have that good fortune in their life. As for his work-in-progress, the one about the pharmaceutical industry, Mr. Turow said he expects to have a draft completed by the end of the year, with an estimated publication date of late 2019 or early 2020. The story is told in a more meandering voice, he said, explaining that he always searches for the most natural voice for his writing. The Last Trial is about an 85-year-old man, he said. So it will be naturally discursive, not unlike the recent best-sellers The Gentleman from Moscow by Amor Towles or The Nix by Naples resident Nathan Hill, he added. I remember reading Marilynne Robinsons Gilead and thinking to myself: There is no damn reason this book ought to work. You go on, and you eventually realize that youre not going to learn how the narrator ended up marrying his barely literate wife, so what you think the book seems to be about originally, is not. Again, the prose is lovely, but the book itself seems to wander. You have no idea where the hell its going for the longest time, yet its captivating. Thats hard to explain. Why is that? So as he enjoys the Florida sun, Mr. Turow writes about the intricacies of law, weaving mystery with lawyers, moving sections around to see how they best fit, creating, by intuition and persistence and a mind equal parts lawyerly and literary, his next best-selling page-turner.

NEWSFrom page 32Sails launches diners on a voyage of culinary delights BY KAREN FELDMANFood and Wine EditorIt took months longer than expected, but Sails Restaurant has opened at last and it was well worth the wait. The lush new establishment at the corner of Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South opened just before Valentines Day and is quickly becoming a darling of Naples discriminating diners. Hurricane Irma set the opening back by about two months, says owner Veljko Pavicevic, and some 11 fire inspections added on a few more weeks. But thats all behind them now. Mr. Pavicevic is an alumnus of The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort. His business and life partner, Corinne Ryan, is a highend procurer of meats and seafood from around the world. Chef Jacob Jasinski comes from the acclaimed Ocean House in Rhode Island, where he worked with sommelier P.J. Alexander. Their shared excellence and experience appears to have spread through the rest of the front of the house staff as well. The restaurant is full of noteworthy elements, from the sail-shaped marble bar to the plush leather chairs to the eye-popping display of fresh seafood (much of which is caught by a Greek fisherman who puts it on a plane each night in Athens, from which it is flown to Miami, picked up and delivered to Sails less than 24 hours after being plucked from the sea). Theres a cozy private dining room that seats 8 to 11 people who are surrounded by the restaurants red wine collection. Its not simply the freshness of the fish thats impressive but the variety. Ever had alfansini? Its a bright red deepwater fish from New Zealand thats big enough for two people to share. Theres turbot and durade and trevally and tiger prawns from Australia that are almost as big as lobsters. Select whatever youd like and then have it cooked on a woodburning grill or prepared la plancha (seared on a metal plate). The rest of the menu features quite a bit of seafood, too, including crudo, tartare and carpaccio preparations, raw bar selections and house-made pastas. For carnivores, there is Little Joe grassfed prime tenderloin and beef tartare. And for dessert, consider a chocolate souffl with Grand Marnier anglaise. Even seating comes with choices. Select a spot at the roomy bar near the piano player, outside along Third Street, at a table in the bar area or in a second dining room that faces the open kitchen. Although its only been open a few weeks, the restaurant appears headed for smooth sailing from here on in.

The expansive view of boats, mangrove islands and birds makes the bayside deck a hot spot, and Big Hickory enjoys a reputation for award-winning dishes that play with local seafood and fruit. Think plantain-crusted grouper with bananainfused sauce and shrimp tacos drizzled with Key lime aioli. The popularity of such signature items might explain why the menu has not changed much over the years. But we can report that the mahi coco loco (coated in coconut and topped with pineapple and buttery rum sauce) and apple-mango grouper (with salsa and passion fruit sauce) are as good as ever. Service can be leisurely, so sit back and enjoy the view. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2016 Fuse Global Cuisine, 2500 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 455-4585 Chef/owner Greg Scarlatos has a deft hand with flavors and textures, creating dishes that are imaginative and appealing. A huge bowl of sauted Prince Edward Island mussels bathed in garlic, white wine, herbs and spiced, topped with red pepper rouille and grilled crostini is a great starter. So, too, is a hearty version of the Thai soup, tom gha, a coconut-infused shrimp stock with mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes and plump Gulf shrimp. The nightly fish special, corvina, was prepared with sauted Swiss chard, almond-jasmine rice, coconut green curry, tamarind coulis and fiery green papaya slaw. The various textures and flavors worked well together. For a Latin flavor, consider the pan-seared diver scallops and mojo pork belly with black bean ragout, roasted poblano crema, roasted maduros and tomato-avocado-corn relish. This dish was a bit more complex than it needed to be, but everything was expertly prepared. For dessert, consider the brown butter Bulliet, a brown butter cake laced with bourbon topped with thick cinnamon praline sauce and vanilla ice cream. Nice wine list and creative craft cocktails here, too. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2017 Martin Fierro Argentine Steakhouse, Marquesa Plaza, 13040 Livingston Road; 300-4777 If you are feeling carnivorous but dont want to go to a fancy steakhouse, consider trying Martin Fierros, where the atmosphere is more laid-back and so are the prices. There are moderately priced wines, comforting empanadas (we liked the ham and mozzarella but theres also beef, chicken and just-plain mozz) and Argentine Provoleta, a large skillet of melted cheese with tomatoes, basils, garlic and wine just right for dipping a piece of bread (plan to share). You can have pasta or even seafood, but steaks are the stars, specifically parrilladas, or grilled meat medleys. We tore through one containing beef short rib, churrasco steak, pork tenderloin, chicken breast, chorizo and two sides. Id suggest sharing this bounty, too. All the meat was tender and well flavored, the mixed veggies lightly dressed in balsamic vinegar and the yucca crisp like French fries. A platter of lamb chops was excellent, too. For dessert, try the dulce de leches crepes, two tender crepes rolled around sweet caramel finished with whipped topping. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2017 Meridian Caf, Meridian Marketplace, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 280-5536 Corned beef hash crafted from housemade corned beef, fresh-squeezed orange juice, just-baked cinnamon rolls that are as big as your head. This and more is quickly attracting a loyal following to Chef Raena Hobsons Meridian Caf at where else? the Meridian Marketplace. The aforementioned hash contained generous chunks of just-salty-enough corned beef, potatoes, onions and secret spices, accompanied by two fried eggs and toast. Lunch here is no slouch, either. A grouper sandwich on a slightly pink brioche bun (beet juice gives it that pink hue) came with a side of lemon tartar sauce and hot, crisp, lightly salted fries. Service was friendly and warm throughout the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2017True Food Kitchen, Waterside Shops, 5375 Tamiami Trail, Naples; 431-4580While I dont typically review chain restaurants, this one warrants making an exception for its healthy but hugely appealing menu, beautiful sun-washed dining room, immaculate open kitchen and knowledgeable, friendly staff. Based on Dr. Andrew Weils anti-inflammatory diet, the menu is full of imaginative items at reasonable prices that will thrill vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free diners and confirmed carnivores equally. Dont miss the cauliflower in harissa tahini, medjool dates, dill, mint and pistachios. You will never look at cauliflower the same way again. Other winners included: a wild mushroom pizza, grass-fed steak tacos, lasagna Bolognese with house-made chicken sausage and Scottish steelhead with smoked onion farro. A dessert of coconut chia seed flan with caramel sauce, blueberries and blackberries tasted indulgent and satisfying. So did a Thai grapefruit martini and a ginger margarita. Full bar.

CUISINE REVIEWMykonos Kuzina conjures up tastes, sensations of Greek islandsIts been a while since Ive visited Greece, but I clearly recall a brief sojourn to Mykonos, one of the Cyclades islands, where there were loads of tavernas filled with people eating with gusto, drinking with even greater appetite and yelling opa! as plates of saganaki were flambed tableside. I thought Id been transported there on a recent evening when I visited Mykonos Kuzina, a lively establishment tucked back from U.S. 41 just off Wiggins Pass Road in North Naples. In both the dining room and the adjoining enclosed patio, clusters of people were speaking in animated Greek, laughing, drinking Greek wine and shouting opa! as servers flamed cheese and, in some cases, shrimp, tableside. Inside there were wood tables, a long bar with high-top black chairs and red seats over which sat a little balcony with woven rugs whimsically flung over the sides. Greek art hung on the walls and a television played continuous travel videos displaying stunning vistas of Greece. The patio was a bit less decorated but pleasant nonetheless with colorful little lights, Greek scenes on the walls and plastic windows to keep out the heat and humidity. Of course, Greek music played, the owners greeted customers warmly, whether or not they knew them, and everyone appeared to be having a fine time. This is a departure from the more staid, upscale establishments for which Naples is known. (And its a far cry from the spot at the far end of this strip center, The Palate, at which I attempted to dine a few weeks earlier but fled after waiting two hours for entrees that never arrived.) Mykonos Kuzina offers some of the Greek items youve likely seen elsewhere in these parts: fried calamari, falafel, dolmades (stuffed grape leaves), avgolemono (chicken lemon soup), gyros, moussaka, pastitso and souvlaki. But it also has a variety of selections you might not have had before, such as marithes (fried smelts), keftedakia (fried meatballs), Greek-style spaghetti with browned butter and cheese as well as bronzino in lemon-caper sauce and lamb cooked in a clay pot. There are even several dishes for vegetarians. We started with a Greek wine, a 2013 Nemea The Land of Hercules Agiorgitiko, a red wine aged in small oak barrels for a year. The agiorgitiko grape is among the most widely planted in Greece and, while not the most complex wine Ive ever had, it was a respectable table wine that went well with the lamb I ordered. It wasnt bad with my appetizer, skordalia ($8), a dish of potato and garlic puree paired with beets. The puree was very garlicky, the beet slices were sweet and crunchy chunks of cucumber and slices of red onion served to moderate the bite of the garlic. A little oregano on the beets was a nice touch. My companions falafel ($8) were small and crisp. The six chickpea balls were golden brown and flavorful on their own but even better with a spritz of fresh lemon, slices of red onion and a dip in tzatziki sauce. We werent quite done with our appetizers when our enormous entrees arrived. Seated at a table for two, we were a bit space challenged with our appetizers, wine bottle, wine glasses, water and entrees. Clearly, the appetizers had to go. My companion faced the shrimp Mykonos ($21), a bountiful clay pot filled with orzo, feta, tomatoes, onions, green and red bell peppers and shrimp all baked in a casserole. There was enough food in that pot for two or three people, and we wound up taking what seemed like most of it home. What we ate, however, was hearty and comforting, although Id have liked a few more shrimp in the mix. The lamb shank ($25) was what youd expect: a large piece of meat that was so tender no knife was needed. The delicate flesh was delicious in a rich brown sauce accompanied by orzo in a light tomato sauce. This was too big to finish as well, and about half of it went home with us. A satisfying piece of baklava ($5) and an even better one of galactoboureko ($7), phyllo pastry filled with homemade custard, finished the meal off perfectly. Our server, though not Greek herself, had embraced the spirit of warm hospitality and was gamely trying to learn the names of all the dishes. She was friendly and attentive throughout the meal. And, as befits this homey sort of place, the owners made sure to stop by before we left to make sure wed enjoyed our meal and to invite us back. We did. And its a good bet well be back.

2 MARCH 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly Correspondent Friday night was the traditional gathering time for the live-aboards and marina employees. It was the brief quiet time before the weekend rush, when they came together as a community. When they drank and laughed and complained and lied, with no one around to hear, just them, and the marina became a private thing, like a secret. The Heat Islands, by Randy Wayne White In Randy Wayne Whites popular series of thrillers, a marine biologist named Doc Ford lives at a fictional marina on fictional Dinkins Bay on the real Sanibel Island. Many of his neighbors are live-aboards, folks who reside on boats. Doc Ford is more than a marine biologist. Hes also a secret agent who sometimes kills bad guys who need killing. All in a days work, of course. At the end of the day he often hangs out with his neighbors at Dinkins Bay, reveling in their friendship. The live-aboard lifestyle sounds seductive. Sometimes people think living on a boat is all martinis and drinks, said Joe Moran, who resides with his wife, Connie, on a 36-footer named Chesapeake that is moored at the Fort Myers Yacht Basin. Its very much like owning a home. Theres something to be done on it every day. Bob Wise and his wife, Kathy, reside on a 55-foot Novatec Islander called the Sea Wise. The boat is moored in Punta Gorda. But they can change their address quite simply. If youd like a change of scenery untie your lines, Mr. Wise said. Real life live-aboards such as the Wises and Mr. Moran reside on boats sprinkled all through Southwest Florida, up and down the coast, snugly hidden away between islands or moored at marinas on bayous or in the heart of bustling downtown Fort Myers, mere steps away from vibrant nightlife. The boats are anchored or moored on bays and inlets and rivers and even the Gulf of Mexico. Its unlikely youll find a secret agent just returned from killing terrorists at any of them. Live-aboards say it doesnt matter what one did before joining the community of live-aboards. Well, unless that something involved being a terrorist. Russ and Janice Pouliot, who will celebrate their 47th anniversary in October, live on a 36-foot boat called Dream Chaser that is docked at the Fort Myers Yacht Basin, which is nestled downtown between the Caloosahatchee and Edison bridges. The retirees from New Hampshire dont have a house to go back to in the Granite State. Were not homeless, Mr. Pouliot, 71, pointed out. Just houseless. Ms. Pouliot said they dont miss owning a home, particularly in New Hampshire. No! Ms. Pouliot, 66, said. And worry about snow load? Thats not a worry at their home on the Caloosahatchee. A recent winter morning, when the temperature dipped into the 30s, didnt faze the Poilets. You dont shovel that, Mr. Pouliot said of the nippy weather. This is the life for these retirees. Your winter last three days, Mr. Pouliot said of Floridians. Quite a contrast to New Hampshire. Our summer lasts three days, Ms. Pouliot said. The boat is their home. Other liveaboards are their neighbors, some of whom may also have houses in distant states. What matters most, the Pouliots have learned, is not the status of a neighbors land-based residence or occupations, either current or previous. One thing that really surprised me was no one asks what you did, Ms. Pouliot said. No one cares if you were a lawyer or a maintenance man. It isnt a topic of discussion. Were all retired. Live-aboards revel in the camaraderie of their communities. Kim and Randy Kalisik and their 13-year-old son, Corey, have lived for nearly six years on a 40-foot DeFever Passage Maker at Salty Sams Marina on Fort Myers Beach. Their trawler is named Blue Turtle. Its opened up so many opportunities, Ms. Kalisik said of the nautical lifestyle. For starters they dont always need a car. We take the dinghy to restaurants, Ms. Kalisik said.Ms. Kalisik has embraced the nautical lifestyle so profoundly that she blogs about it at blueturtlertrawler.com. It might sometimes seem to land-locked folks that live-aboards are not merely leaving the 21st century behind but also the 20th. Thats not the case, as Ms. Kalisik points out under the FAQ portion of her blog.Many folks think we are moored out in the middle of nowhere, however, that is not the case, she wrote. Live-aboards have access to the amenities expected in houses, condos and apartments. Our electric is metered through the marina and we have water, cable and WIFI access as part of the slip package, Ms. Kalisik wrote on her blog. Ms. Kalisik said she and her family have discovered a greater sense of community in their marina than in the Lee County neighborhood where they once resided. It just seems we lead a more active lifestyle, Ms. Kalisik said. The lifestyle is downright addictive to many live-aboards. Janice Pouliot joked about the Dream Chaser being moored at a Velcro dock. Once we get in we cant leave, she said one recent morning standing at that Velcro dock next to the Dream Chaser. What does one need to become a liveaboard? The Pouliots talked about the will to do it and how both partners in a marriage or any relationship need to embrace the lifestyle. From the downtown yacht basin liveaboards such as the Pouliots see many people strolling by along Edwards Drive. And some passersby wonder about living on a boat. We say you dont need to go by, Ms. Pouliot said. Come by and have a drink with us. A lot of people have questions about the boat life. They think you need a lot of money. You dont need a lot of money to live on a boat. Janice said she is often asked what they do all day on the boat. Its like what do you do all day at home, she said. Its the same thing. We have to do dishes and cook meals, clean the windows, clean the outside. Mr. Pouliot pointed out one critical difference. I dont have to mow the lawn, he said. Well, there is that. The live-aboards at the downtown Fort Myers Yacht Basin have plenty available within walking distance. There is the downtown library and the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, Centennial Park and Harborside Event Center. And more. You have the art show, said Mr. Moran. Youre going to have a film festival. Youre going to have a book festival. And then its a short walk back to the marina and home aboard the Chesapeake. It was Friday night, clean-up and cocktail time. Live-aboards were beginning to circulate among neighboring houseboats, drinks in hand, smiles fixed, everybody smelling of shampoo and looking for a party. Somebody had put speakers out on the dock so that Jimmy Buffett seemed to be erupting from the water singing. Sanibel Flats, by Randy Wayne White After the work is done. After the dishes are washed and the deck scrubbed, and the grocery shopping is completed and all the countless details that go into caring for a boat have been taken care of for that particular day, live-aboards can kick back. Definitely here a traditional thing that happens at 5 oclock is docktails, Mr. Moran said. A get-together. Youll have six, eight, 10 boats, People just come up and have a glass of wine or cocktail and you get to know your neighbors. Thats not just in the fictional world of Dinkins Bay. Thats also in the world of real liveaboards, sprinkled through Southwest Florida. The life of the live-aboardCOURTESY PHOTOSKalisik family Kim, Randy and 13-year-old Corey.

4 MARCH 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Learn to sail in paradise BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentMove the thing! Move that other thing! Vizzini, on a sailboat, to his crew in The Princess Bride. In the beloved film, The Princess Bride, Vizzini is the bad guy who has kidnapped Princess B utter cup and is sailing through eel-infested waters to the Cliffs of Insanity. Vizzini, as portrayed by Wallace Shawn, claims to be utterly brilliant about everything. Well, except sailing. He doesnt know anything. He likely doesnt know bow from stern, port from starboard and windward from leeward. Or one thing from another thing. Sailing to novices can seem overwhelming. Just ask Vizzini. There are so many terms, from abaft to yawl. How do you make a boat turn? How do you make it go when it is pointed straight into the wind? Winches? Tacking? Cockpit? It sounds like an entirely different language, said Doris Colgate, who owns Fort Myers-based Offshore Sailing School with her husband, Steve. It sure does. Heeling. Jibe. Jib. So much to learn. To sailing novices that movie scene may sum up how they feel when thinking about learning to sail. Maybe Vizzini should have enrolled at a Southwest Florida sailing school before kidnapping Princess Butter cup and setting off through eel-infested waters. Thats what Naples resident Buck Lloyd did. No, he didnt kidnap a princess. He signed up for sailing lessons at the Offshore Sailing School, driving about 45 minutes one way from his home to the Pink Shell Resort on Fort Myers Beach for lessons. Mr. Lloyd has an advantage over many sailing novices. Hes an experienced power boater and knew his way around marinas, boats and waterways before first venturing out on one of the Offshore Sailing Schools 26-foot Colgate keelboats. Steve Colgate and marine architect Jim Taylor designed the boats. Mr. Colgate and his wife, Doris, own and manage the sailing school. It was the school Mr. Lloyd selected to learn sailing. Before he ventured out on the water, Mr. Lloyd said, there was classroom preparation and homework. He said students are sent manuals ahead of time to help get them up to speed when they step on one of those 26-foot sailboats. Mr. Lloyds boating background includes two vacations on Bareboat cruises. So he has likely started class with a more knowledgeable boating background than many students. He and other students need some basic knowledge, stuff that Vizzini lacked as he plowed through eel-infested waters with Princ ess Butte rcup. Soup to nuts anatomy of a boat, Mr. Lloyd said. Much of that anatomy comes in reading and what Mrs. Colgate calls a classroom session. Thats where sailing instructors get rookies up to speed. It was time well spent, even for people such as Mr. Lloyd. Been around boats my whole life, Mr. Lloyd said. Phil Brittain of Charlotte Harbor Sailing also encourages his students to prepare for time on the water by familiarizing themselves with basics through the American Sailing Association. Then they go out on his 31-foot Catalina named the Eliora. What should students know ahead of time? Rules of the road, said Mr. Brittain, who operates out of the Isles Yacht Club. He makes it sound like learning to drive. Before student drivers get behind the wheel, they need to know stop signs mean stop and red lights mean stop and green lights mean go. There are similar rules for boaters. What I like to do is have them read the book, Mr. Brittain said. As in the case with Offshore Racing School and its locations, Mr. Brittain believes knowing basics before leaving the dock is helpful to his students. Most of the time people dont have a background in sailing, Mr. Brittain said. Sometimes they do. That is the case with Sarasota resident Susan Garrett, who signed up for lessons with Charlotte Harbor Sailing along with her boyfriend, Brian Anderson. Ms. Garrett said she wants to learn more, specifically to enhance her safety when sailing. Im thinking of doing longer journeys in the future, said Ms. Garrett, a nurse practitioner who owns a 37-foot sailboat. She said the time with Charlotte Harbor Sailing was well spent. We enjoyed our time, Ms. Garrett said. We really learned a great deal. So sailing lessons arent always for beginners. Even for boaters such as Mr. Lloyd, who has power boating experience, learning this other method of moving boats provides challenges. Mr. Lloyd, who is an attorney, said he likes the intellectual challenges of sailing. You have to deal with critical thinking, problem solving, Mr. Lloyd said. There is so much, one must monitor on sailboats, he added. You have to keep track of the wind, Mr. Lloyd said, pointing out merely one factor to track. He realizes his sailing skills are not to the level of sailing veterans. He doesnt immediately know how to respond to wind changes, for example. The more you do it the more you develop an intuitive sense, Mr. Lloyd said. The learning for students starts swiftly, according to Mrs. Colgate. In two days, she said, students are ready to steer the boat and trim the sails. She said her school has had students from every state and other countries. She mentioned Germany, England and Spain as the homelands of some of her students. She added that students are taught more than what to do on sailboats. We dont just show them, Mrs. Colgate said. We explain why. There is a great deal to learn, from the classroom to the dock to the water. The most dangerous place to be is the marina, Mr. Brittain said. So he has his students practice docking. Then comes the fun. Then you learn the wind direction, Mr. Brittain said. Then you learn how to set your sails. Mr. Lloyd liked the Offshore Sailing School course so much he wrote the following review for the company: The course was a great introduction to sailing by increasing my confidence and knowledge. The course teaches the essentials of sailing and efficient sailing techniques. (The instructor) did a great job of providing examples to help understand some of the more technical aspects which are difficult to grasp for the new sailor. Mr. Lloyd isnt done with sailing. I would like to keep going with it, Mr. Lloyd said. But maybe not all the way to the Cliffs of Ins anit y.

8 MARCH 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Boating has always been a call to adventure, exploration and discovery. When you are aboard a vessel that is as durable, seaworthy and safe, as well as comfortable, it is natural that distant ports will beckon. So, cast off for Bimini, the Bahamas, Mexico, the Tortugas, or even to a neighboring state, but be sure you understand and stay compliant with the rules and regulations for each place you visit even if just passing through. Follow every rule to the letter including those regarding possession, size and bag limits for fish.Safety firstSmart boating travel is largely a matter of planning and paying attention to common sense safety practices. Make certain that your boat is properly equipped for the voyage, that you have plenty of supplies including food and water aboard, and that you have a contingency plan for weather. Some rules of thumb: Be sure you have all required or needed safety gear and that your safety gear is in excellent working order. This should include routine Tips on trips: visiting other places on your boat inspections of your life raft and EPRIB or PLB if applicable. Make certain life jackets are serviceable and appropriately sized for all crew. PLAN, PLAN, PLAN. Make a realistic, detailed float plan and dont travel alone. Solo passages are for experts and can be dangerous. In the absence of local knowledge, proceed with caution, and carry backups for navigation and charting in case your primary fails. Consider fuel stops, docking accommodations and food/water needs when planning your travel. Discover Boating has excellent, detailed tips on boating travel and safety. Additionally, many books have been written about navigation through certain areas specifically the Keys, Bahamas and Dry Tortugas. Consider talking to someone who has voyaged to your destination before for hidden tips.Boating/fishing outside of your own state watersIf you cross into and fish adjacent state waters, nonresident fishing licenses are required. The Take Me Fishing website is a great source of information on obtaining both resident and non-resident licensing across the U.S. You can also contact fish and wildlife offices directly in the states you plan to fish. Transiting through the Intracoastal Waterway or around the Great Loop is pretty straightforward, but if you decide to stop and fish along the way be sure you know the rules and regulations in the areas you intend to enjoy. And bear in mind that things can get confusing when you cross into federal waters (3 miles) due to the lack of uniformity between states. Some states allow continuous transit, but others do not; for almost everywhere that allows continuous transit, fishing gear must be stowed and the burden of proof is up to the boaters. The Bahamas require a cruise permit and some research of their own including restrictions on how fish can be taken. Plan your trip and get the licensing and information BEFORE you leave your dock. Visit the Take Me Fishing (www.takemefishing.org) website for information on how to get a fishing licensing in any U.S. state. Visit the Captain John (http://www. captainjohn.org/GL-ICW2.html) website for good information on the Intracoastal Waterway including the Great Loop.International tripsThe entire crew must have valid passports, and you must clear customs and immigration when entering foreign waters including Mexico and Canada. In the Bahamas, you will need a Bahamas cruising and fishing permit (costs are based on vessel size and trip length). On any international trip, get the latest fishing and cruising regulations in your transit areas and at your destination and follow them to the letter. This site has excellent information for any boaters planning any international trip: https://www.getmyboat. com/resources/tips-for-renters/305/ tips-for-boating-in-international-watersSo, when the distant ports beckon, research everything you can about relevant safety equipment, fishing laws and licensing laws before you cast off your home dock. Whether youre exploring the adjacent state with your family, or voyaging the Atlantic, Caribbean, or Gulf with fishing buddies, stay safe and have fun.

10 MARCH 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY SW FLORIDAS LARGEST SAILING CATAMARAN BOOK ONLINE: www.SWEETLIBERTY.com DAILY CRUISES SAILING SUNSETS RECOMMENDED BY THE NEW YORK TIMES Alcohol and boating: Think before you drinkAlmost half of all boating accidents involve alcohol. That should be reason enough to leave alcohol consumption for when you are safely ashore with no plans to travel. Operating a boat while intoxicated is a federal offense, subject to a $1,000 fine. In addition, criminal penalties are as high as $5,000 and may even include jail time. State boating under the influence laws are becoming more stringent. In most states, the standards for determining whether an individual is intoxicated matches its state highway laws for operating a vehicle. Please consider: In most states it is illegal to operate a boat with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or greater. Some states will suspend your boating license or privilege. In some states your driving record could be affected. Your boat could be seized or sold at auction.The effects of alcoholAffects balance Balance is critical on a boat. Simply falling overboard and drowning accounts for at least one in four boating fatalities. Impairs judgement Alcohol reduces inhibitions, causing normally cautious people to try stunts or enter high-risk situations a sober person would avoid. Slows reaction Alcohol severely diminishes your ability to react to several different signals at once. It takes longer to receive information from your eyes, ears and other senses, and still more time to react. Reduced night vision and the inability to distinguish red from green makes the intoxicated night boater an even greater hazard. Boating stressorsStressors, such as exposure to noise, vibration, sun, glare, wind and the motion of the water, affect boat operators and passengers, thus making drinking while boating even more dangerous than drinking and driving. Research shows that hours of exposure to boating stressors produces a kind of a fatigue, or boaters hypnosis, which slows reaction time almost as much as if you were legally drunk. Adding alcohol or drugs to boating stress-factors intensifies their affects each drink multiplies your accident risk.Alcohol myth or fact?Myth: Beer is less intoxicating than wine or distilled liquor. Fact: One 12 ounce beer contains the same amount of alcohol as 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor. Myth: A cold shower, coffee, physical activity or fresh air will sober you up. Fact: Cold showers and coffee will only produce a clean, wide-awake drunk. Only your liver can detoxify alcohol and only time can sober you up. Myth: A shot of brandy or whiskey will warm you up. Fact: In moderate amounts, alcohol dilates the blood vessels close to the skin, giving a deceptive glow of warmth. In fact, the dilated blood vessels reduce your bodys ability to guard against heat loss. BEST HAPPY HOUR! BRUNCHSATURDAY & SUNDAY 11-2150" HD BIG SCREEN!

14 MARCH 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Raft-up 101 There are a number of reasons that you might have to raft-up with another boat nearby. If your boating weekend includes a trip to Keewaydin Island, or if you have considered taking in July 4th fireworks from the water with friends, rafting up can be easy and fun if you remember a few tricks.The following is a short list of items to remember when rafting two or more boats.First, what to bring. Plenty of fenders for both sides of your boat. Fenders can never be too big or too many. Consider ball shaped fenders for ball sections, and make certain that fender whips (lines) are adequate in length to reach a nearby cleat. Plenty of dock and spring line is also important. At least, as much as you would need to tie up at a dock. Keep in mind also that if you are rafting to a boat smaller than yours, your large dock lines may not fit their smaller cleats. A good anchor is critically important as the whole raft generally secures off the anchor of the largest boat which is usually positioned in the center. If the raft has to break-up unexpectedly, make sure you are ready to deploy your own anchor.Procedure The biggest boat is generally the anchor boat. Usually, only one anchor is set as multiple anchors can get tangled. The captain of the anchor boat should have enough experience with his anchor and should also remember to let out plenty of rode with a minimum scope of 7:1 meaning 7 feet of rode length for every one foot of water depth. When in doubt, pay out a little extra. Communicate (by VHF radio) with the raft-up boat and ask which side the captain wants you. Generally, the anchor boat captain will want to balance out the raft-up and will have a preference on what side you come up on. Usually you want the bigger boats in the middle and the smaller boats on the sides so that the height of the boats gunnels is nearly the same. Have your fenders deployed on the proper side at the beamiest part of your boat and lines ready to hand to the boat you will be coming up along side. Normally, the boat that is already tied up should deploy its fenders for the next boat joining the raft. Set your stern and bow lines so that the boat is straight and even alongside the boat next to you. You want to balance the distance of your stern and bow with the boat next to you, allowing the beamiest part of your boat (usually amidships) to touch with the boat next to you (this is where the fenders come in handy). Make sure these lines are tied tight, and be mindful of hand placement when bringing the boats together. You need to tie your boat as tightly as possible to the others; as slack will allow excessive movement in a wake. Repeat these steps if someone is rafting up on the other side of you.Raft-up etiquetteBe respectful of the boats next to you. If you are in a large raft-up, getting from boat to boat can be cumbersome. Take your time. Normally the party or gathering is on the larger boat(s) in the center of the raft. Please be considerate when crossing other boats and ask permission. Boat shoes or bare feet are a must. Make sure you have plenty of lines and fenders. No one likes a boat whose captain doesnt come prepared. Loud noise/music may offend other boaters nearby. Last, be prepared to spend the day. Having to break the raft to let someone out from the middle means a lot of coordination and work for the remaining crews. Raft up carefully, and your next boating adventure can be that much more fun!

20 MARCH 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Crew overboard Falling out can happen on any size boat BOATUSPreventing an overboard situation is relatively easy when you use a little common sense. Sadly, one of the most common causes of crew overboard and subsequently drowning is a crew member relieving himself over the side of the boat in a standing position. Avoid this disaster; go below and use the head.Three points of contact good advice for all boatersWhile on board you should always strive to have three points of contact with the boat. This means, you should have both feet planted and holding on with at least one hand. Or, if you are moving about, hold on with both hands to something firm like a grab rail or stanchion and take one step at a time. If seated, have your feet touching the floor, or holding on with both hands. Having three points of contact assures that your body is positioned in such a way that most of your body is in contact with the boat, and you wont be set off-balance easily.Additionally, avoid standing and sudden movements whenever operating your boat. Plan ahead to avoid unsafe operating and environmental conditions like bad weather or rough water. This goes for your passengers too. If your boat is operated while standing, such as a center console, assure solid footing and brace yourself if it has a leaning post or bolster chair. Always wear your engine cut-off lanyard so that the engine stops if you go overboard. Crew-ov erboard victims face a number of dangers, including panic, injury during the fall, and hypothermia. For those aboard the boat, quick thinking and coordinated action are essential to an effective rescue.The importance of COB drillsUnfortunately, despite all preventive efforts, accidents can still occur. The need for crew-ov erboard drills cannot be emphasized enough. Your entire crew should practice the maneuver until recovery is second nature. Before you depart, show everyone where the lifesaving gear is located and how to use it. Practice first with a floating cushion, then with a swimmer and another boat standing by. These drills can often make the difference between a tragedy and a mishap on the water. Its always a good idea to practice throwing a life ring or cushion. They are quite a bit harder to throw than you might think. With practice and the right equipment, you can safely and quickly recover someone who has fallen overboard. Crew over board procedures should be practiced at the beginning of every boating season and from time to time over the course of the boating season. Doing so may save someones life even your own. Crew overboard prevention tipsOn small boats Board one person at a time Step into the middle of the boat Keep weight low and centered Add non-skid or grip tape in strategic areas Keep pets like large dogs from moving about On large boats Assure solid footing and keep decks uncluttered Always sit in areas designated by the operator; never on the gunnels, bow or swim platform Check life lines and railing devices that keep passengers aboard for wear or weakness Boats over 16 feet in length must have a Type IV throw-able safety device like a horseshoe buoy ServicesWe provide 2 1/2 hour guided tours through some of the 10,000 Islands.

Buy a boatWhen it comes to having fun on a family outing, you cant beat a Hurricane deck boat. Specifically, these boats are great for island hopping and cruising the coast on a sunny day. If youre planning on doing some island exploring around Marco, Sanibel or Captiva islands, or the Thousand Islands, hop in a boat and enjoy the versatility and advantages it offers. Southwest Florida offers an abundance of relaxed entertainment options. From the areas world renowned golf courses to luxurious resorts and spas, rest and relaxation has been thoroughly integrated into local culture. While expensive amusement options are definitely the most well known in the area, plenty of affordable choices exist for people of all income levels. The easiest, and perhaps cheapest, of these is shelling. There isnt much to collecting shells. A sheller simply has to head to the beach and pick up any uninhabited shells that interest them. The most difficult part of the activity is actually getting to the beach. Of course, plenty of beaches are accessible by car or on foot, but some hidden gems are only accessible by boat. For those planning on doing some island exploring and shelling around our many islands, a versatile boat is a necessity. The professionals at Naples Boat Mart suggest a Hurricane deck boat, for its spacious layout and dynamic, shallow draft design. These boats allow drivers and passengers to stay comfortable and get right up next to the beach to scout for shells before having to get off the boat. Owning a boat provides a distinct advantage when it comes to shelling. Being able to reach remote beaches drastically reduces competition for more desirable shells. Additionally, having a boat gives one the chance to reach more popular shelling destinations before the competition, by avoiding traffic and getting to locations like Cayo Costa or Gasparilla Islands ahead of everyone else. Experienced shellers suggest that low tides during the new and full moon bring the best shells. Boat owners can make the most of these times by knowing when they occur and cruising to the best spot before they fill up with other shellers. Boats also allow you to carry more gear and, thus, more shells. Boats have plenty of storage space for shelling tools, such as mesh and canvas bags, backpacks, sifters, nets and any necessary beach accessories. A deck boats clever layout offers storage options perfect for hauling shells and people, while also providing the ease and versatility necessary for one to reach as many beaches as possible in a day. From hard core shellers to individuals tagging along on a casual outing, owning a boat will almost always elevate a day of shelling. Better yet, boats are available at every price point, making it possible for nearly anyone to experience the calm, cathartic fun that shelling brings. Of course, shelling would likely be a small percentage of what an individual would likely do with a boat, since there are hundreds of other reasons to own one, but it is a simple and relaxing activity that nicely compliments high energy water activities. There are plenty of websites available with in depth information on shelling, as well as different stores and museums that can teach an amateur enthusiast more about the craft. To learn more about how a boat can positively impact shelling adventures, contact Naples Boat Mart.
