B1 BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@ oridaweekly.comWellington is known for its equestrian pursuits. There are show jumpers, dressage champs and polo players. And it is polo that reigns supreme in this village about 10 miles west of West Palm Beach. Heck, even Prince Charles took to the Wellington polo fields a few decades ago. But who knew that for the past nine years, Wellington has been a hub for gay polo? Thats right gay polo. The Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament, set for April 7 at International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington, promises to bring out some of the sports best players regardless of sexual orientation. What stands out for me is that every year our event develops a deeper, more polished culture, which enhances the experience for people who participate and support it, said Chip McKenney, founder and president of the Gay Polo League. The tournament itself attracts around 4,000 people from across the country Mr. McKenney said he alone had 15 family members arriving to watch.

COMMENTARY Man enoughMy uncle, B.F. Nash, used to post this sign on the rough road gates in the barbedwire fences he stretched across the Colorado cattle ranch where he made his life: Either be man enough to come to the house and ask us if you can hunt, or STAY OUT. B.F. Nash. Be man enough. Many a chromosome-Y wonder has spent a significant part of his life trying to define that imperative. Implicit in my uncles words are two certainties: One, that everyone knows what it means, and two, that it usually requires doing what is right and honorable facing up to whatever it is especially if theres a downside. How to be man enough while driving your Ferrari or sailing your yacht or starting a new business or teaching your children to hit a baseball, catch a fish, survive in the bush, treat other people kindly, travel the continents, complete their homework, read for pleasure, save their money, dance, scuba dive, shoot, negotiate the web, ride a horse, identify flora, fauna and stars, make their beds, do what they said they would do, help neighbors, love passionately, survive tragedy, or knock down a charging water buffalo at 450 yards with a slingshot in a strong wind while humming Beethovens Pastoral Symphony in tune (a la Walter Mitty) thats an important question. One in which courage figures significantly. But not just any courage. Both the good guys and the bad guys may have physical courage, a virtue without allegiance to any cause, religion or country. The Japanese who faced us in the Pacific during World War II, for example, did not lack courage, a fact my uncle became intimately and unhappily familiar with on Guadalcanal and several other islands. The same is true of some of our enemies today. Being man enough in the sense he meant it, however, also required moral courage, and still does. Thus, the fundamental notion of manhood in American culture remains unchanged even if the trappings, the etiquette or the choices are sometimes different. In that spirit, I can claim fairly that some of the best men Ive ever known have been women. My mother and my mother-in-law, both. My aunts, every one of them. My own sister, my own wife and my cousins. A couple of my friends. All of them had or have physical coupled with moral courage. Genetically, though and culturally in some ways its just us guys who have to be man enough. That begins with how we think about women and children, in my opinion with how we treat them. Not just the women we sleep with or the children we raise, but friends, relatives, colleagues, employees and people with different opinions or educations. Its also true that how we treat other men reveals our characters, especially those weaker, less healthy, not as smart, poorer or more burdened not to mention those with differing political convictions or religious sensibilities. In my own life, Ive seen man enough defined a number of ways: in elderly blacks who endured terrible privation at the hands of whites, and refused later to tolerate any bitterness in themselves. In reporters, lawyers, teachers, firefighters, truck drivers, doctors, cowboys, old people, football players, soldiers, guitar players, immigrants, poets and even boys, trying to make somebody elses life a little better, show them due respect or resist their iniquity or callousness. My fathers example was unequivocally clear. He wasnt always easy to live with, but he had physical and moral courage in abundance, a loving, fiercely loyal devotion to my mother and his children, and both kindness and tolerance without weakness. He was also passionately curious about the world, with its new ideas and its various peoples. And I recall other examples, as well: Two Marines who were man enough outside of war, one as competent as they come. He happened to be (privately) gay. The other was a young man who did nine weeks of Officer Candidate School at the top of his class, survived the platoons dropout numbers from 60 to 50 to 40 to 30 into the 20s, and then coolly told the drill instructors that hed decided not to be a Marine, because peace was more valuable than war. (Officer candidates could drop out in disgrace or from injury up to the ninth week without becoming privates in a four-year enlistment. Part of the effort of drill instructors at OCS was to make candidates quit.) The only two veterans I still know well who fought in World War II, each combatwounded and decorated and both turning 90 this summer, have been man enough since they were 17. But like my late relatives, they beat no drums, march in no parades, speak only reluctantly about war, see themselves as no better than any other man or woman and think, write and carry on families or friendships with a fullness that defies age or small-hearted myopia. They wage peace and love, in other words, with the same tough-minded intent they once waged war. To their last breaths, they will be man enough. Here, finally, is a bit of what the late writer Raymond Chandler said about it in The Simple Art of Murder. Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world. If there were enough like him, the world would be a very safe place to live in, without becoming too dull to be worth living in.

Suffice it to say, a bunch of people took part. In Washington, the spat is over just how many hundred thousands flooded the nations capital, to say nothing of those who turned out in hundreds of cities and towns throughout the United States and around the world. The organizers rank amateur teenagers who rose up from Parkland after the massacre at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School did an amazing job. They ignited an outrage-fueled wildfire that spread to students at thousands of schools nationwide. They also captured the imagination of the logistic professionals financed by sympathetic adults. The result was an immense turnout and a well-choreographed and telegenic outpouring of angry frustration at a political system that is unresponsive and unable to cure our nations illnesses, like the blight of deadly weaponry, that has so infected America. In no way is this a criticism of the kids who put this together. It is skepticism over whether this immense show of force is enough to overcome the entrenched special interests that will do whatever it takes to protect their prosperity. One of the most perversely successful is the gun lobby, led by the National Rifle Association. Like a threatened monster, the NRA brutally lashes out whenever threatened. It didnt disappoint this time, derisively calling the enormous rallies a March for Their Lies, heaping scorn on the Stoneman Douglas leaders whove become celebrities, charging that if their classmates had not died, no one would know your names. So, the battle lines have been drawn. The problem is, the NRA has always won these battles. Each time the country is shocked to our core after a deadly slaughter of innocents by gunfire, the armsmerchant lobbyists swing into action and stifle any meaningful progress with bullying and demagoguery. What will it take for the chants of enough is enough to become more than just a feel-good mantra? The purity of this outpouring must now dig into the dirt of politics to accomplish anything more than catharsis. Obviously. So there were voter sign-up spots throughout the rallies, but will those who are easily distracted actually sustain their focus on the campaign process and hold the candidates accountable by slogging nonstop for the several months before the midterm elections? Will they work for candidates who declare themselves in favor of meaningful gun-control measures and, more importantly, against those who receive support from the NRA? We in the media are fickle. Between gun bloodbaths, there are distractions everywhere. Some of them are consequential, such as the intrigue of the Robert Mueller investigation into whether Trump and his associates sold out the last election and our country to the Russians. There also is our siren song of seedy sex stuff, featuring Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal and lots of others. The Stormy Daniels interview on Minutes may have been just unworthy hype, but it got huge ratings. The challenge for the hundreds of thousands who turned out for the March for Our Lives will be to maintain the enthusiasm and public focus on cutting back guns, which are Americas real obscenity. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly bob FRANKENSpecial to Florida Weekly The teenage demagoguesAll you needed to know about student activist David Hoggs speech at the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., was that he affixed a price tag on the microphone to symbolize how much National Rifle Association money Sen. Marco Rubio took for the lives of students in Florida. The stunt wasnt out of place. Indeed, it perfectly encapsulated the braying spirit of the student gun-control advocacy in the wake of the Parkland school shooting. These young activists are making our public debate even more poisonous and less civil, and are doing it as teenagers. They are precocious that way. The Stoneman Douglas students experienced a horrific trauma. No one can deny their grief or blame them for being impassioned. And allowance has to be made for the fact that they are teenagers, who universally believe that they know better than their hapless elders. Yet none of that excuses their scurrilous smears of the other side in the gun debate. The student activists presume that there is a ready solution to mass shootings that everyone knows, and the only reason why someone might not act on this universally accepted policy is malice or corruption. This makes the other side the equivalent of murderers. In a video interview with The Outline, David Hogg said that the NRA and its supporters want to keep killing our children. Not that they inadvertently enable people who carry out school shootings via misconceived policy, but they themselves kill children and want to keep doing it. Lest he be misunderstood, Hogg added, they could have blood from children spattered all over their faces and they wouldnt take action because they will still see those dollar signs. In accusing their opponents of being bought off, the students deny the sincerity and legitimacy of supporters of gun rights. They treat the Second Amendment as an inkblot on the Constitution, and dismiss all counterarguments as transparent rationalizations. This juvenile view of the gun debate ignores Supreme Court jurisprudence, the genuine support of the NRA by millions of people and the serious, practical objections to gun-control proposals, and it removes all possibility of a middle ground. Tellingly, it is Marco Rubio who is the foremost object of the ire of the students, when he has been notably open and accommodating. He showed up at the CNN town hall to get abused, and has shown remarkable forbearance in handling political attacks that are shameless blood libels. He sponsored incremental school safety legislation that is becoming law, and for his trouble he is deemed a moral monster who doesnt care how many people have to die as long as he gets a few more campaign contributions. Maybe all of this can be written off as the work of overenthusiastic, underinformed 17-year-olds. But the student activists arent acting alone. They are promoted and praised by adults who should know better. Since the kids serve a useful purpose in promoting gun control, though, it is practically forbidden in much of the media to dissent from anything they say. It was hard to believe that our public debate could get even more sophomoric. The student activists are here to say, Yes, it can. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Janet Cohen and others are helping to make our museum a very special place for the community to come together against bigotry, hatred and violence, Ms. Suarez said. The new building will allow the museums extensive collection of Holocaust artifacts to be presented in refreshed, professionally designed displays. There is plenty of parking and also room for a classroom, library and offices in addition to the exhibit area. Opening is anticipated late this year.About the museumFounded in 2001, the Holocaust Museum & Education Center started as classroom project about the Holocaust at Golden Gate Middle School.

Get the home state advantage. Door to Door or convenient drop off at SW FLorida Airport Bats in your attic? Give them the boot now FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION COMMISSIONIf you have bats roosting in your attic, eaves or chimney spaces, now is the time to give them an eviction notice. Bat maternity season when bats give birth and raise their young until they can fly and feed themselves begins April 15 and lasts through Aug. 15. Removing bats, a process called exclusion, is illegal during the marsupials maternity season in order to prevent young bats that cannot yet fly from being trapped inside structures and dying. It is illegal to harm or kill bats in Florida. Differentiating between bats and other animals that can also take up residence in your home can be difficult. A sure sign of birds is the appearance of loose feathers and nesting materials such as grass and sticks. And while frog droppings can look like bat droppings, they commonly occur under porch lights and in places that could not support a colony of bats. To determine if a colony of bats is roosting in a building, look for this evidence, as suggested by the Florida Bat Conservancy: Sighting of bats: At dawn or dusk, you may see bats entering or leaving the building. This is easiest to see at dawn, because bats swarm and fly around the entrance hole a few times before entering the roost. You can also watch for bats exiting near the roofline of a building at sunset. Sighting of bat scat: Piles of black, dry guano are usually found under the main exit hole bats use to get in and out of a building. Bat droppings look somewhat like mouse droppings, but differ in several characteristics. First, mouse scat isnt found in large piles, but bat guano often is. Second, individual pieces of mouse scat are a little smaller than bat guano. Third, bat droppings will crumble into powdery dust when crushed, but mouse droppings wont. Lastly, you may see pieces of metallic insect wings in bat scat, but not mouse scat. Sighting of bat stains: Rub marks might be present along the edges of exit holes used by bats on the exterior of buildings. These stains are a slight brown discoloration that is a mix of body oils and dirt left behind as bats squeeze through tight entry points.Bid bats goodbyeExclusion of a bat colony is a multistep technique where all potential bat entry and exit points in a building are identified. One-way exit devices are installed to allow bats to leave the structure but not re-enter. Finally, all potential bat entry points are permanently sealed to prevent re-entry by bats. For detailed instructions on how to rid your building of bats, visit www. myfwc.com/bats. You can also look for How to Get Bats Out of a Building on YouTube. Here are the basic steps of bat exclusion: Find the entry points for bats. Bat-proof all other openings. Bats can enter any hole that is inch in diameter or any crevice of 3/8 inch or more. Install exclusion devices. Several exclusion methods have been developed over the years, and no one method is best for every situation. Netting or tubing are among the most common and have been recommended by the Florida Bat Conservancy, Fly By Night Inc., Bat Conservation International or IFAS/ University of Florida. Allow time for the bats to leave. Florida regulations require the netting or tubing be left up for at least four warm nights without rain or high winds to assure all of the bats have left. Bats tend not to forage on cold or rainy nights, so if the weather turns bad, it will be necessary to extend the exclusion an additional four consecutive nights. If bats are still coming out after four nights, it means they have either found another way back in or the exclusion system is not working and needs to be revised. If exclusion materials become loose or detached, the bats will be able to re-enter, so make sure it remains secure throughout the process. Bats will check continually to see if they can reenter their roost. Permanently seal the openings. After the bats have been successfully excluded, the netting or tubes can be removed during the day and the openings permanently sealed. Do not leave the netting down without sealing the openings, or the bats will move back in the following night. If the openings cannot be sealed immediately, the exclusion devices may be left up longer, but there is a risk that wind, storms or failure of fasteners could allow the bats to re-enter. Another approach is to take the netting down and temporarily cover the openings with plywood or hardware cloth until permanent repairs can be made. Clean up. If a colony of bats has been in a roost for a long time there will likely be an odor and an accumulation of bat guano. In most cases, the odor is from the scent glands, not the guano, of the bats, and it disperses shortly after the bats are gone. Accumulated bat guano should be removed. The Centers for Disease Control recommends people wear respirators whenever in a confined space with bat guano. Consider building a bat house. Before the exclusion, it is a good idea to determine the flight path of the bats as they exit your house. Then you can put the bat house in the flight path or as close to the existing roost as possible. Putting up a bat house is not a substitute for exclusion; bats are highly unlikely to leave an occupied building to begin using a bat house unless forced out of that building. COURTESY PHOTOBat maternity season is April 15-Aug. 15, during which time it is illegal to remove the marsupials from their nesting place.

Participating in Lets Feed Collier is easy: Just go to a Publix store, purchase one or more nonperishable items and give them to food bank staff and volunteers waiting outside as you leave the store. Any donation of pantry food is welcome, but the items most needed are breakfast bars, canned fish or chicken, beans (dry or canned), other canned vegetables, cooking oil, pasta, pasta sauce, tomato sauce, dry milk, jelly, rice, cans of soup and beef stew. The Harry Chapin Food Bank distributes food to 30 partner agencies in Collier County, where about 38,000 people are food insecure, which means they often dont know where their next meal is coming from. About 13,500 are children. In addition, about two-thirds of public school children in Southwest Florida are eligible for or receive free or reduced-price meals from their school because of their families low income. When school is out during the summer months, these daily meals arent available. Combine that with the fact that food donations generally decrease during the summer months, and its harder for the food banks partner agencies to help feed those in need. About the Harry Chapin Food BankAn affiliate of Feeding America and a United Way partner agency, the Harry Chapin Food Bank solicits, collects and stores food for distribution to families and others in need through a network of more than 150 nonprofit agencies in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties. In fiscal year 201617, the food bank distributed 22.3 million pounds of food and other grocery items, including 6.6 million pounds of fresh produce. The food, valued at $37.3 million, is the equivalent of 18.6 million meals for people in need. For more information or to make a donation, call 334-7007 or visit harrychapinfoodbank.org.

Mr. Lauritsen is staring across a halfmile or more of wet prairie flanked by distant cypress the last significant stand of old-growth bald cypress left on earth, a deeply valuable Florida treasure with some trees that pre-date the arrival of Ponce de Leon on the lower west coast in 1513. But thats not what hes looking at, nor does he spend a lot of time taking in the splashes of pink among scores of wading white birds a couple of football fields away roseate spoonbills fishing with herons and ibises. Such wading birds together once numbered about 2.5 million across the southern Everglades. Now, roughly 5 percent of the birds John Jay Audubon himself might have seen in the early 19th century exist south of Orlando, experts estimate. The French-born naturalist and painter traveled deep into the northern or central Everglades himself on a single torturous occasion, became lost for about six weeks, and finally made his way out, later expressing a strong dislike for the peninsular climate and watery landscape; no other North American settings inspired a similar lack of affection. Although the Audubon Society has claimed Corkscrew since 1954, Mr. Lauritsens views are the antithesis of Corkscrews famous namesake. Like a religious supplicant, he lifts his eyes above the wading birds, finally pointing to the magnificent spectacle overhead. High in the faultless blue of midday, big birds wheel at various altitudes, open-winged, writing their wandering circles on the sky. Do you see? he calls breathlessly. Do you see that? They have white legs! His excitement is so palpable he can hardly speak. A reporter notices that many do, indeed, have white legs and a few others have dark legs. So? Theyve fledged, theyre up. The young birds have white legs thats the most Ive seen!Wood storksWood storks. That theyve fledged (taken on their feathers) and gotten up flying this early in the dry season roughly the beginning of March is promising for their survival, Mr. Lauritsen explains. And when wood storks do well over time, the entire Everglades ecosystem may be doing well, too. But that has not been the case for years. The system is sensitive, and it works roughly like this, says Mr. Lauritsen: The wet and dry seasons create hydroperiods, months in which water floods the land then slowly recedes. How fast that happens how fast the standing water shrinks to big pools, then in turn to small isolated pools determines whether fish and crayfish with other aquatic organisms washed across the entire landscape during the wet season, can reproduce and populate the many pools left in the dry, to become the highly nourishing food source growing birds must have. When that works when water is not inhibited by man-made canals, ditches, roads and developments, for example fish, crayfish and other water organisms feed not only the wading birds but a food chain that includes raccoons, otters and alligators. Once that happened not only at Cork-SWAMPFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYSeven distinct habitats exist at Corkscrew, most underwater in the deepest of the wet season. Jason Lauritsen shows visitors the dry prairie with invasive willows in the distance. George and Joy Rathmann, Minnesotans and co-founders of the Rathmann Family Foundation, loved Corkscrew. The foundation has helped restore part of the sanctuary. In the 1960s, the bald cypress at Corkscrew supported more than 5,000 wood storks hatched, fledged and flying each year. In recent years, the average is about 250. Wood stork health is an indicator of western Everglades health.We know how to restore this ... But we cant do it unless I can stop the water coming from this north side of the sanctuary.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 NEWS A11SEE SWAMP, A12 screw but east across Hendry, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Not now, either there or in Collier at the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, which lies some 15 miles east of I-75, a distance pocked with houses and condominiums, a golf course, shopping malls, schools, fire and sheriffs stations and the like, along with agricultural fields. Thats part of a pattern too easily tolerated by Collier County officials, and by a legislature that has allowed counties to move away from their comprehensive plans and develop properties without careful analysis to determine their impacts, says Thomas Hawkins, policy and planning director for 1,000 Friends of Florida. In 2013 and 2014 we did an analysis of the Rural Land Stewardship Program in Collier County and to sum up, from our perspective: In those rural lands (surrounding Corkscrew) Collier has allocated too much development potential.Larry, and other visitorsMeanwhile, the swamp appears to be popping with life, not only the birds and fish visible in pools and ditches, but in big predators. A truck approaches the buggy from the other direction, and stops. Dr. Ralph Arwood, a general surgeon who has become an expert panther tracker and monitor, and a workhorse Corkscrew volunteer who started cutting fallen trees off broken boardwalks two days after Hurricane Irma, jumps out to chat with Mr. Lauritsen and his visitors. We have a dominant male out here now, Larry we call him, and two females, one with three kittens, he announces. Dr. Arwood not only has crawled, long-sleeved, gloved and carefully, deep into saw-palmetto bush to locate panther dens and kittens (you can get a glimpse at ralpharwood.com), but he has placed game cameras along trails throughout Corkscrew so he knows who comes and goes. Larry, for example. Larry was here last week on a hot date there was a lot of squealing. The cameras show him all the way from the Frank property to the highlands. What difference does such a creature at Corkscrew make, other than as a rare amusement? Theyre an apex predator, he explains. They maintain the whole system. Without them there are too many other creatures including raccoons and wild hogs that create terrible damage to native habitats. Raccoons, for example, can become a significant threat to wood stork nests, eggs and fledgling birds, but to get to them they often have to move through alligator holes where females protect not only their young, but the wood stork nests in the trees above, Mr. Lauritsen says. Spotted by the score from his big buggy, the gators appear to be having a good year, as well as the wood storks. By March the standing water that covered even the hard-pack buggy trail threading canals created in the 1930s and s has shrunk to some sizeable pools. There, both large and many small alligators move restlessly when the vehicle passes, especially if it pauses. The wood storks, meanwhile, appear disconnected from hundreds of feet above the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, but nothing could be farther from the truth.The connectionsEverything is connected, announces Mr. Lauritsen, turning a clich into empirical fact. A century ago, ornithologist Thomas Gilbert Pearson estimated the oldgrowth bald cypress in and around Corkscrew (the very trees standing majestically in the distance) hosted 100,000 wood storks; in recent years, according to Audubon data tracked for six decades at Corkscrew, fledged chicks dropped from an average of 5,450 in the 1960s to less than 300 in the last decade or so, with no nesting and no chicks on a number of years. If is the operative word in predicting whether these wood storks, emerging from more than 400 nests, Mr. Lauritsen estimates, will survive this year. Scientists watch their numbers with both great interest and great trepidation. They will survive if the adults build nests in the cypress; if the adults lay the eggs in time not too late, as they sometimes do if conditions arent proper, earlier; if those conditions for water and therefore food progress at the natural rate; if the young birds can get out of the nest and begin flying early enough; if they can continue eating in the sanctuary late into spring, before flying northward. As wading birds who feed in part by touch, they do best when water subsides to levels of about 18 inches in depth. Sometimes they take flight from their nests beginning too late to stay here long enough to eat to eat enough to develop the strength they need to fly north, explains Mr. Lauritsen. Theyll start the (migratory) journey but they wont make it. And well never see them again. It might just take a philanthropistTheyre considered canaries in the coal-mine of Everglades restoration or even just survival, says Jim Rathmann, a Neapolitan whose Rathmann Family Foundation has helped restore part of the Sanctuary a part, in fact, where wild turkeys appear suddenly to observers from the buggy, ignoring the wood storks or seemingly any other creatures except the humans to race swiftly from one cluster of scrub to another, in the distance. The first time I came here with my mother in the 1960s, there were thousands of wood storks, Mr. Rathmann recalls of his arrival in the Sanctuary from his native and very frigid Minnesota. She loved it. And so he loved it, and continued to love it while working first for IBM and then as a venture capitalist in life science enterprises through a career that finally allowed him to move to Naples about 15 years ago. After his father died six years ago and his mothers health declined, the place resonated with me in a way I couldnt describe. I had deep memories, and in some sense (restoring the marsh) was a way of recapturing my mother. But I could see when we came back (Mr. Rathmann arrived in Naples with his wife and daughter), the wading birds had in many ways left. Wood storks, in particular. So the question becomes what, if anything, can be done? More than any other maintained preserve, perhaps, naturalists at Corkscrew have kept meticulous records for decades, not only of birds but of water levels; thus, they can understand why and how the landscape and its creatures have changed. Singularly, says Mr. Rathmann, its due to loss of habitat. So, first they had to understand how to get the water under control (that took years, and the job is still unfinished), and then they started to understand how to reclaim the habitat. But as caretakers begin to restore habitat, they have to face doubt. Theres always that question: if you do this, what will happen? Will (the birds) come back? Its a leap of faith. That really resonated with me. So through our family foundation, we got involved. So did others.The damn willowsUnfortunately, the willows got involved, too. The storks circling above them, or wading and fishing in the restored marsh flanking the willows dont look threatened, anymore than they appear endangered when they arrive in number along ditches in suburban neighborhoods or beside the ponds on golf courses. But thats never a good sign, says Mr. Lauritsen. It means they arent finding food in the swamp, where they prefer to be. One of the biggest challenges now facing all wading birds are willows, with other species that may be either native or exotic, but are profoundly invasive. On one section of the trail Mr. Lauritsen follows northward through the sanctuary, the landscapes have been restored over many years of effort, the willows ploughed or chopped up and burned off, with the help of philanthropists and volunteers; now again there are pine flatwoods, wet prairies, freshwater marshes and of course the bald cypress swamp itself. I called the pine flatwoods at Corkscrew exquisite because of the wonderful diversity within them, says George Wilder, a botanist at the Naples Botanical Garden. In a research project he undertook to count species within Corkscrew, the pine flatwoods had the second largest numbers of types of plants, of all seven habitats there. We counted 344 different kinds, including some rare ones. (A disturbed habitat he calls ruderal land, included the most species, he noted, simply because so many invasives or exotics had piled into them with the native species.) Among the many plants in the pine flatwoods at Corkscrew are three species of orchid, Mr. Wilder says: Spiranthes lacera, Platanthera nivea and Calopogon tubeosus.The boardwalk at Corkscrew takes visitors past trees that were standing in the swamp when Ponce de Leon sailed up the Gulf Coast in 1513.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYIn other sections of the sanctuary, however, especially in the north of the property and where the land remains disturbed, little could be described as exquisite. Willows are the most prominent of the invasive plants, clustering in some places right up to the trail, but in others appearing in thick armies across open marshes, at a distance. They thrive in part because they benefit from nutrient-laden water flowing out of citrus and other agricultural fields north of the property. Willows significantly change the water levels and naturally balanced hydroperiods. Theyre very thirsty, explains Mr. Lauritsen, who has spent a significant part of his career recovering sections of the sanctuary from willow invasion. They suck water from the aquifer, it courses through their leaves, and it evaporates into the atmosphere. With willows, you can lose a foot of water a year, or as much as 1.6 feet in a dry year. This is not just at Corkscrew, but everywhere. If the water is down 3 to 6 inches below the naturally balanced level at a low point in the hydroperiod, therefore and where willows exist en masse it will be fish and crayfish may not survive. And if they dont survive, animals that eat them wont survive and neither will anything else in the food chain including gators, who need the water and the pools to raise their young.A view of everything then and nowOn the north end of Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, the trail crosses out of Collier to enter Lee County along a canal some 20 feet wide with deeper water 4, 5, 6 feet, perhaps flowing over a weir. Mr. Lauritsen unlocks a tall gate, drives off the sanctuary a hundred or so yards, and stops the big machine, again. Everybody dismounts to take in the view, a view of everything Florida was and is, it seems. Behind the big buggy, visitors can see both the once upon a time swamp that might not have appeared much different 1,000 years ago, and the invasive willows, thick as hair for a mile. On either side of the road, agriculture is king, with citrus on one side and a vast cleared field waiting for new crops on the other; beyond that to the east, the headquarters of the South Florida Water Management District and the office of the CREW Trust, a large preserve stretching into the Big Cypress. Mr. Lauritsen watches the water coming out of the farm fields, into the ditch, over the weir in a lively frothing little waterfall, and down into the Audubon sanctuary. That water is the bane of his existence, he says. Even in the deepest days of the dry season water is flowing over that weir and into Corkscrew both day and night, feeding the willows about as unnatural a condition as Florida can offer. We know how to restore this, Mr. Lauritsen says, gesturing to the willows behind him stretching southward into Corkscrew as far as they eye can see. The cost is about $2,000 an acre to eradicate the willows and bring back Floridas once upon a time. But we cant do it unless I can stop the water coming from this north side of the sanctuary. And to do that, he would need to purchase 7,000 acres of citrus prospering in the afternoon sun across the road, beautifully cultivated and fully irrigated, land now owned by Floridas largest citrus enterprise, the Texas-based King Ranch.Were talking to them, he says. So far, they havent shown any interest in selling.If he could take out the ag, he could change the unnatural flow of nutrientladen water into Corkscrew. And if he could change the water, he could eradicate the willows. And if he could do that, he could restore the marsh. But what a job. In the ditch water itself, Mr. Lauritsen and his visitors stare at something none of them have ever seen: a massive school of fish. The fish fill the ditch to a depth of 3 or 4 feet in a school that stretches about 150 yards downstream from near the weir. Tilapia, fish that feed on algae and plants, which come from a lot of nutrients. Invasive. Probably a half-million of them, he guesses. Mr. Lauritsen and his visitors climb back onto the big buggy, glance north up into Lee County. Then he turns the machine around and heads south, back into the swamp toward the distant, floating birds above it. Mr. Rathmann, learning of the sight, hearing of the fledged and flying wood storks, has the last word. If people can figure out how to get out of the way, nature will come back. Its unstoppable. Thats what this piece of land has demonstrated: If you can make the habitat conducive, if you can restore it and we know how to do that they will return.

BEHIND THE WHEELMercedes AMG S63 Cabriolet the best for a privileged fewThis is the one car that does everything well. Its a technology-filled luxury car. Its a grand touring convertible. Its a 577 horsepower supercar. And with a price approaching $200K, Mercedes ensures that the AMG S63 Cabriolet will always be in exclusive company. Mercedes-Benz is the kind of company Floridians love. While that might read more like an advertisement, with six different convertible model lines, the company is a friend to sunny weather. With this much diversity, a top dog like this S-Class needs to be distinct, because it can easily cost four times more than another droptop sharing the same dealership space. There is a family resemblance across the Mercedes line where the S-Class Cabriolet has a similar face with the wide lower air openings, sweeping LED driving light feature and dual bulges in the hood inspired by the classic 300 SL. But this larger vehicle lets its size known with more dramatic body lines that are given more time to develop, and an overall wide body look that announces its the daddy to the other Benz droptops. The roof also shows Mercedes is thinking about premium appeal. It can be raised while still doing 35 mph. Thats a decent speed in an era when many companies are starting to requite complete stops before raising the roof. And buttoning-up while in motion has its advantages. After all, this car can even make the drive to a business meeting exciting, but its hard to look ready for a stern corporate takeover when arriving with a big grin and an open top. There are more thoughtful touches awaiting inside this Benz. The door panels are unique to this car, and they do a terrific job of enveloping the driver without consuming him/her. Plus, while Mercedes offers some hardtop convertibles, its not missed on this car. The thick insulation and soft micro suede headliner feel like a real roof when in place. Mercedes has already been one of the best at integrating infotainment screens in their interiors, and this one takes it up a notch. It comes standard with a 12.3-inch central screen and a companion 12.3-inch unit that goes directly in front of the driver. These two displays can control nearly every aspect of the vehicle, and the new upgraded steering wheel package now contains dual thumb pads. It means the driver can control the entire vehicle while never removing a hand from the steering wheel. As the technology flagship of the Mercedes family it also has everything available from semiautonomous driving features to a night vision camera displayed in front of the drivers gauges (a $2,260 option.) Of course, its the luxury that really sells these upper class Benzes. The seats are made of Nappa leather, and because this is based on the shortened wheelbase of the full-sized S-Class sedan, there is even room to carry rear passengers without complaint. However, its the front seats that make the most of this luxury machine. Comforts abound with everything from electronic massaging to the Air scarf system that blows warm air on the driver and passengers neck. But even with this much standard opulence, there are some irresistible options. For example, since this car is open to the world, there are some vivid packages that can really make this Benz stand out. The S63 Cabriolet starts at $180,495, and so adding a bold Designo color scheme to the leather seems like a paltry sum at $3,250. However, theres the aforementioned night vision, premium audio system ($6,400), and more. So checking a few more of option boxes like these can quickly get the price above $200K. More than just luxurious, the AMG part of this name ensures that this convertible is fast. The AMG S63 has a 5.5liter twin-turbocharged V8 motor that produces a huge 577 horsepower. Thats nearly 25 percent more power than the base S560 Cabriolet, but its seven percent less than the V12-powered AMG S65 Cabriolet (a quarter-million-dollar machine.) The middle power rating would make it seem like the AMG S63 is a slower machine, but actually its the quickest of the trio. Its due to the standard all-wheel drive system giving superior traction, and the larger torque of the S65 bigger brother can only be utilized through rear-wheel drive. Fast, luxurious, and cutting-edge the Mercedes AMG S63 Cabriolet is an all-around stunner with thoughtful details. So if youre comfortable driving what others pay for a home, this is the Florida car that will leave you wanting for nothing.

The citys resulting plumbing bills have totaled between $2,000 and $3,000.OopsA man playing with a baseball on the roof of a parking structure in Honolulu on March 23 had to be rescued by firefighters after he fell into the space between two buildings and got stuck, KHON2 TV reported. Security guard Ray Rodrigues was dispatched to the roof to run the 55-year-old off, but found the man had fallen into a 7to 9-inch-wide space between the cement walls. When pulling him out with a rope failed, firefighters resorted to using drills and saws to cut through the concrete to free him. He was taken to a hospital in serious condition.Questionable judgments Shoppers at the Miracle Mile Shopping Center in Monroeville, Pa., got more than they bargained for on April 8, 2017, as model Chelsea Guerra, 22, of Indiana Borough and photographer Michael Warnock, 64, of Point Breeze conducted a nude photo shoot around 11 a.m. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, as Warnock took photos and families looked on, Guerra walked around and posed wearing only thighhigh black stockings and high-heeled shoes. In early March of this year, Guerra and Warnock pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct after other charges were dropped, and paid a $300 fine. My nude modeling is honest work, Guerra said, and I use it mostly to fund my college career. A dairy truck driver lost his job in early March after being caught on a surveillance camera urinating near dairy cows in a barn at Tremblay Farm in Highgate, Vermont. While no charges were filed, Monica Massey of the Dairy Farmers of America said the drivers behavior was unacceptable. We saw the videos. What we saw was deplorable, Massey said told WCAX TV. Darleen Tremblay said she was shattered by what she saw on the video. I couldnt move. I froze and I shook, she added.Bright ideaRuan Rocha da Silva, 18, was caught in late March trying to steal five cans of deodorant from a supermarket in Sao Paulo, Brazil. His prominent tattoo might have given him away: A year ago, after Silva tried to steal a bike from Maycon Wesley Carvalho, 27, and Ronildo Moreira de Araujo, 29, the two men forcibly tattooed Silvas forehead with the words I am a thief and an idiot. The Daily Mail reported that Carvalho and Araujo were caught after filming themselves inking Silvas forehead and sending the video to friends; both were sentenced to jail time. Silva is out on bail, awaiting trial for shoplifting.InexplicableEastern Michigan University student Andrew (who didnt give a last name), 22, wasnt making any kind of statement or protesting any government action (or lack thereof) on March 12 when he filled a pothole in Trenton with a whole box of Lucky Charms and a gallon of milk. Andrew then lay on the road with a spoon and ate the cereal out of the pothole. I dont know where the inspiration came from, but when it hit me, I knew it was a good idea, Andrew told MLive.com. It tasted great. If I was blindfolded, I wouldnt know if it was a pothole or a bowl.International relationsItalian chef Fabio Picchi has offered three American exchange students in Florence a four-hour cooking lesson after the women tried to cook pasta in a pot without water on March 18. The pasta burst into flames within minutes, and firefighters were summoned to put out the fire. We thought it was cooked like that, one of the students told La Nazione. They will have lunch in our restaurant with two of my extraordinary cooks, Picchi said. I think this can be useful to them, but also to us. Understanding is always ... what is beautiful and necessary.Weird powerIn Didcot, England, known as the countrys most normal town, one resident creatively tried to change peoples perceptions with additions to road signs along local highway A4130. The prankster added destinations such as Narnia, Gotham City, Middle Earth, Emerald City and Neverland to roundabout signs, telling the BBC (on condition of anonymity): To me theres nowhere that is normal, theres no such thing. He said hes been making creative interventions all over the country for about 20 years. The Oxfordshire County Council responded that while the additions were amusing, theyll be removed as soon as the countys potholes are fixed.

BY DR. TERRY MCVANNEL-ERWINSpecial to Florida WeeklyIn the aftermath of the devastating school shooting in Parkland, many are calling for removing gun access for the mentally ill. According to a CBS News Poll, 68 percent of Americans agreed that better mental health screenings would curb gun violence. In Gallup polls, almost 46 percent of respondents said that people with mental illness were dangerous. Despite the widespread belief that mental illness has a key relationship to gun violence, research does not support this theory. Jeffrey Swanson, a medical sociologist and professor of psychiatry at Duke University, studied individuals mentally healthy and mentally ill to examine the relationship between violence and psychiatric disorders. His group found that serious mental illness alone accounted for only 4 percent of cases. Violence was more closely associated with whether someone was male, poor, or abusing drugs or alcohol. Additionally, Professor Swansons team found that those three factors could predict violent behavior with or without any signs of mental illness. If someone fit all three categories, the likelihood was high that they would commit a violent act. In a follow-up study of individuals with severe mental illness, Professor Swanson found that 13 percent of the participants with severe mental illness had committed a violent act in the past year. Substance abuse, history of victimization, and exposure to violence each played an important role in violent behavior among the severely mentally ill; however, it was the combination of all three factors that resulted in the most substantial increase in assaultive behaviors. For individuals with none, or only one of these factors the risk of violence was only 2 percent the same risk found in the general population. Adding one additional risk factor doubled the probability of violence and adding all of the factors resulted in a 30 percent risk. A study of mass murderers conducted by Michael Stone, professor of clinical psychiatry at the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, found that 75 percent of mass murderers studied did not appear be mentally ill at the time of their rampage. Professor Stone noted that 25 percent of mass murderers studied were under the age of 25, had no previous arrest record and no record of psychiatric hospitalizations. He concluded, The mentally ill should not bear the burden of being regarded as the chief perpetrators of mass murder. These finding suggest that comprehensive mental health services addressing the multiple factors that play a role in predicting violent behaviors may be the best intervention for curbing gun violence. According to Mental Health America, Florida ranks 44th in the nation for access to mental health care. Moreover, Florida has a dismal record in terms of funding for mental health care and addiction treatment. The most recent data shows Florida ranking 51st out of 52 jurisdictions behind 49 states and Washington, D.C. And the current opioid crisis adds fuel to the fire. According to Lee Health, opioid overdoses in Lee County have increased from 171 in 2013 to 955 in 2017 an 800 percent increase. And the Florida Medical Examiners Commission reported 5,725 opioid-related deaths in Florida in 2016, a 35 percent increase from the previous year. The Social and Human Service Program at FSW has heard the call to action. This program prepares students to address many of the factors that play a role in all violent behavior poverty, victimization and alcohol and drug abuse. Students graduate with the knowledge required for national board certification as well as many state-level certifications, including certified addiction counselors. In addition, formalized agreements with local colleges and universities allow students to smoothly transition into higher level degrees in mental health. In the aftermath of the shooting in Parkland, we are all searching for solutions. While many have called for stricter mental health screenings, research suggests that other factors may play a more important role in preventing gun violence. To address the dearth of mental health care services in Florida, the Social and Human Services Program at FSW is working to prepare students to provide much needed services in our local community.

More than 200 guests enjoyed a cocktail party, dinner and keynote address by Kamela Patton, superintendent of Collier County Public Schools, who stressed the ongoing need for early and regular access to books for local students. Guests also heard from student recipients via a short video, which is now viewable at www.booksforcollierkids. org. Originally launched as First BookCollier County, the nonprofit partners with more than 20 local organizations to put new, age-appropriate and personalized books into the hands of pre-K, kindergarten, firstand second-grade students in need. Books for Collier Kids partners include Fun Time Early Childhood Academy, Grace Place for Children and Families, Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida, The Shelter for Abused Women & Children, Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, Friends of Foster Children Forever, the Boys and Girls Club of Collier County and Guadalupe Center. For 13 years weve addressed the need for access to books in the homes of at-risk children in Collier County, Joanne Wyss, founder of the organization, said. It is our passion to provide area students books that engage their minds, ignite their imaginations and help them develop the reading skills they need for success in school and throughout their lives. Books for Collier Kids reports that 63 percent of Collier Countys 22,000 elementary students are economically needy; CCPS has designated 64.38 percent of students across all schools as economically disadvantaged. Eighteen 18 of the countys 30 elementary schools are Title I schools where a majority of students are from low-income families and at least 50 percent of students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program. An average of 90 percent of children in Title I elementary schools are economically disadvantaged children and benefit from Books for Collier Kids. The organization: Addresses one of the most important factors affecting literacy access to books by providing children from low-income families a new, high-quality, age-appropriate book, complete with their name inside the cover, once a month throughout the academic year. Ensures more than 7,500 pre-K through second grade children who live below the federal poverty line have access to books and can build their home libraries. Addresses summer slide reading concerns through a summer program, ensuring students dont fall behind in their reading skills during the break. Books for Collier Kids is an all volunteer-run nonprofit organization that depends on support from the community. A gift of $50 buys one book a month for every child in a Head Start pre-K or Title 1 classroom; $100 buys one book a month for every child in two classrooms; $250 buys one book a month for every child in five classrooms; and a $500 donation supports an entire classroom (more than 200 new books) for a full year, providing each child with a book a month to take home, cherish and share. Current board members are: Sallie Williams, chair; Nora Kolmer, vice chair; Mary Henrikson, secretary; Donna Eskra, corresponding secretary; Ray Kalich, treasurer; and Mary Polizzotto, Erika Aron, Marcie Charles, Hina Sanghvi and Emily Watt.

A24 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYIt is a diverse group. Every year, we have players from all over, said player Phil Tremo, who helps organize each years tournament. This year, we have players not just from the states and Canada, but from Argentina, and one of our players is a Russian guy from Georgia. South African 6-goal professional Stuart Sugar Erskine will lead Caroline Morans Goshen Hill team. Hes a world-class polo player and he reached out to us, Mr. McKenney said. So is Argentine professional 6-goaler Ignacio Nacho Badiola, who will serve as the frontman for RSM US, LLPs team, while 4-goal pro Matt Coppola will serve as point person for the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek team. Catherine Malones team, Cedar Crest Stables, will be led by local polo professionals Joey Casey, owner of Palm City Polo, near Boynton Beach, and fellow pro Tiffany Busch, manager at Vero Beach Polo Club. There are players of all levels. Mr. Tremo, who divides his time between West Palm Beach and Washington, D.C., is a fairly recent devotee of the sport. He always had a passion for horses but developed a passion for polo after seeing the first gay polo matches in Wellington in 2010. The next winter season, we all kicked into gear with lessons, and thats when I started learning polo, he said. It took practice it wasnt until 2015 that he played well enough to participate in the tournaments. Now, hes hooked. I play January through April in Florida and I play June through September in the Washington, D.C., area, he said. Just going to watch the polo tournament, I never even would have thought it would be a huge passion. Its part of my work and its my main sport activity. Thats the human component. Then theres the equine component. I love the horses, Mr. Tremo said. I think people say the horses are what bring people to polo. But it does not compare to dressage and other equestrian sports. Theres a big difference between perfecting your form in the arena versus the excitement of polo, Mr. Tremo said. There are so many layers. You need to be a good rider, but you need to hit the ball well. Then there are strategies among teams, in which participants play off one anothers strengths and weaknesses. Thats the beauty of polo, Mr. Tremo said. Its inclusive. Men and women compete together. Also, because every player has a specific handicap levels, we can mix them up to play four equal teams. The pros can help lesser experienced players think quickly. Its a very exciting sport because it is fast-paced and there is so much to think about, Mr. Tremo said. Mr. McKenney agreed. Theres this incredible adrenalin rush because youre running 35 miles an hour hitting a 3-inch ball with a 6-inch mallet head, he said. Within that adrenalin, theres this sense of calm. You stay in the moment. Its this wonderful silence in your head. Its as much about the ponies as anything. The ponies used for polo tend to be smaller than the horses used in jumping. Mr. Tremo will be debuting a new horse, a 7-year-old named Paris, at gay polo. He says there is a bond between horse and rider. I dont want to say its like a pet, because its not, but you have that connection with your horse, he said. We look for horses that are very responsive because there is so much we ask from them in polo, in terms of the speed and the agility. But its not all about the game, because whats a game without a party? There are tailgates, then there are tailgates. And its the latter you will find at this years gay polo. Forget the grills, and the pickup truck beds you see at football games and concerts across the country. At gay polo, the tailgates housed in tents will have gone condo. The people who buy tailgates and decorate them, thats a lot of work, and I understand that it adds a lot of value to our event, Mr. McKenney said. How many people really contribute to making this a quality event. Some are private parties, but others are open to the general public at the tournament. Its a blast, said Rand Hoch, a West Palm Beach mediation attorney and founder of the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council. The first year I went, there was a bunch of people in their little tailgates. Now, on one side, its the polo match, and its all these wonderfully imaginative tailgate parties people hold for their friends, and often for strangers. I have a fun tent, with gorgeous bartenders who are not wearing shirts, and I want to keep it fun, said Don Todorich, a Realtor with Corcoran in Palm Beach, and resident of Lake Worth, who donates the liquor for a tailgate sponsored by the human rights council. Competition can be fierce among tailgaters. Organizers expect this years tailgates to build upon past themes, some of which have included God Save the Queen!, Brunch at Tiffanys, Gerts Cut & Curl and Ros All Day, among others. Its all in good fun, but the tailgates do offer an opportunity for networking and education. Its all about supporting the LGBTQ community, says Mr. Todorich. It helps promote my business, and it helps people know I am a supporter of diversity and all aspects of supporting the gay community. After all, polo itself is about coming together as a community, even if the game sometimes is beside the point once the parties get going. Its really special to have friends and family caring for you during the tournament and that makes this day really special, Mr. Tremo said. Its always fun every weekend that I play, but having all those folks supporting us means a lot to me.

Zehr, M.D. CEO Medical Director Southwest Floridas premier outpatient surgery facility, designed specically for joint replacement239.592.4955 SeasideSurgeryCenter.com1879 Veterans Park Drive, Suite 1101 Naples, Florida 34109 HEALTHY LIVING AGRONIN The ultimate book for seniors, senior health care providers REVIEW BY PHIL JASON The End of Old Age: Living a Longer, More Purposeful Life by Dr. Marc E. Agronin. Da Capo Press. 227 pages. Hardcover, $27. This book should be on the desk of every geriatric specialist, senior living facility staff member and senior citizen caretaker. Most senior citizens will also benefit from its wisdom, compassion and sensible guidelines for successful living at an advanced age. Carefully organized into four easily digested parts, each containing two complementary chapters, Dr. Marc Agronins book is nothing less than a manual for moving beyond the negative connotations of aging. We must learn, he writes, how to age in a creative manner that is both the antidote to feeling old and the elixir of aging well. It is a philosophy aimed not at recapturing youth but rather exploiting the gifts of advanced age. Dr. Agronin is an accomplished writer whose experience and empathy generate positive vibes as well as practical planning advice. One of his key points concerns the accumulated wisdom of the elderly. He offers many examples, stories of patients and others, of how this wisdom has value not only for others, but as a resource for the person going through the aging process. He articulates five categories of behavior, vividly defined and exemplified, to explore the growth and use of an individuals wisdom in old age. Presented as five jewels in the crown of wisdom, they are: savant, sage, curator, creator and seer. Though the categories overlap somewhat, they are useful concepts. They are not meant to pigeonhole people but to find the ways in which aging is useful, to counter the customary dread and denigration of aging and to build new habits of identity. Dr. Agronin defines a concept he calls age points as periods of adversity, struggle or despondency along the aging journey. Age points threaten our ability to cope; Dr. Agronin guides readers through a series of stages to work through the trauma of an age point. First is recognizing the precipitating event, after which comes a sense of suspension of not being able to respond to a crisis productively. Next comes a multifaceted evaluation of how to reconcile the gap between what we have and what we need. Finally, comes the action of resolution and forward movement, usually attached to an altered perspective and sense of positivism. Further chapters reveal and illustrate similar tools. Each is filled with carefully crafted case studies that are as uplifting as they are informative. Readers will recognize themselves, their parents and their friends in these vignettes. They will see how others have pushed away the blocks that seem to stand in the way of a fruitful, worthwhile passage through lifes final decades. They will understand how fear and loathing can be transformed into celebration, indeed, even celebrations with new rituals and the refinement/renewal of habitual ones. Aging well requires creativity, and Dr. Agronin pursues this important ingredient in the chapter titled Renewal, Reinvention and Creative Aging. Once again, he designs a conceptual frame, in this case an action plan that leads to performance and accomplishment. Its steps, each clearly articulated and exemplified, are reserve, resilience, reinvention, legacy and celebration. Sample charts and grids help readers to get started on the path to building and maintaining an aging process that will bring the best possible experience and outcome. Bolstered by the findings of other professionals in the field, Dr. Agronin provides well-tested roadmaps for successful years and decades of aging. He is a fine stylist whose thoughtfulness, clinical experience and caring nature will give readers confidence in new, attractive possibilities for their aging selves. But there is much work to be done. Parkinson association welcomes patients and caregivers The Parkinson Association of SWFL Inc. offers numerous classes and support groups to help those at various stages of the disease as well as their caregivers.

Roxie, who was off-leash, ran off, right into an ambush. Lucky for her, she escaped with only bites around the eye and on her paw. Coyotes are no longer a symbol of rural living. They live in Americas largest cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago and New York, where they make a fine living off garbage, pet food left outdoors, rodents and, yes, dogs and cats. Coyote attacks on pets, like the one Zappala experienced, usually occur during the wild dogs courting, mating and pupping season: late fall, winter and early spring. Mating season begins as early as November, with pups on the ground typically between April and June. Often, an individuals or communitys first response to the presence of coyotes is to want to trap and relocate or kill them. While that might be satisfying in the short term to people who fear the animals, its not a viable or desirable solution, says coyote biologist Jacqueline Frair, Ph.D., of State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. Coyotes have a suite of biological mechanisms that kick in to rapidly grow their populations when they are under threat from hunting or other reduction efforts. Studies have shown that when coyote numbers are reduced, a higher proportion of females become pregnant, litter sizes become larger and the offspring of those litters have higher survival rates, Frair says. What should you do if you are walking your dog and encounter a coyote? A good offense is the best defense, as the saying goes. If you live in an area where you know there are coyotes, stay alert when walking your dog onor off-leash. Carry a walking stick, mace or bear spray that you can use to ward off a coyote that seems menacing. If you use mace or bear spray, be aware of the winds direction so you dont suffer blowback. If you dont have any of those items with you, throw rocks or yell at the coyote, and wave your arms or a hat at it. Most coyotes are shy and fearful and will run at any sign of aggression from you. Stand your ground. Running away will only incite the coyote to chase you and your dog, which is not the reaction you want. Even if you and your dog dont mean any harm, a coyote will be extra-protective if you and your dog unknowingly come near a den with pups. Be watchful during pupping season. Other strategies to keep coyotes at bay and pets from becoming prey: Secure garbage cans so that coyotes cant knock them over or knock the lid off. Feed pets indoors or take up food as soon as the animal is finished eating outdoors. Empty outdoor water dishes in the evening. Never offer food to coyotes. Cover or remove other sources of food that could attract coyotes, such as compost heaps, fallen fruit and birdseed spilled from feeders. Install motion-sensitive lighting to startle coyotes that enter the yard. Put up a solid, well-maintained fence at least 6 feet tall. A high fence with a roll bar on top is even better. Even in a fenced yard, accompany small or medium-size dogs outdoors if its very early in the morning or after dark. Trim shrubbery so it offers little cover. If you see a coyote lurking near your yard, shoo it away. Coyotes simply shouldnt learn to get comfortable around us, Frair says.

Always Ready To Take Home With You or Next Day Delivery! @alisoncraighome If you fight for whats right, do it your wayOccasionally, Southwest Florida stories are featured in the national news and its usually for something weird that the rest of the world decides to make fun of. Last year, some FGCU students brought a dead alligator into their dorm room for a photo shoot. In the fall, a Fort Myers woman was arrested in the school pick-up line for snorting cocaine off her iPhone screen. Meanwhile, in Naples, a 78-year serial bra thief was put in the pokey for stealing hundreds of dollars worth of bras from Nordstrom. Internet news outlets love to pick up these stories and see them go viral, as Floridas reputation for weirdness grows. But I dont see why it was so weird when a Fort Myers woman, Karen Cooper, married a tree in an effort to keep it from being cut down. Her betrothed, a lovely 100-year-old ficus tree in a small public park on the Caloosahatchee River, was in danger of being removed by city officials when the new land owner next door expressed concern that the tree would spread its branches onto his property. For years, children had climbed and played in the tree, families had enjoyed picnics under its shade and it had been the backdrop for countless graduation, engagement and wedding photos. By marrying the tree, Karen helped the cause garner a plethora of free publicity the story was picked up in Miami, Jacksonville, and even by Newsweek and People magazines online. Karen and the trees wedding took place on Saturday on Monday, the Fort Myers City Council decided the tree was off the executioners block and would remain where it has stood for the past century. But when reading articles like this online, I have to remind myself not to read the comments below the stories because people can be brutal: What a whack job! Mentally incompetent, She must be a brain dead liberal, People in Florida get crazier every day. OK, I get that photo shoots with dead alligators, cokeheads in carlines and bra thieves set themselves up for ridicule, but why are we so quick to condemn people for standing up for what they believe in and trying to make a difference? I remember years ago, maybe the late s, when a woman in Key West tried to save a tree that was to be cut down to make room for a parking lot. She climbed it, chained herself to it and went on a hunger strike she was up there for days. Firefighters had to forcibly remove her, and the tree was cut down anyway. I tried to search for news reports to get details, but this was before internet news and social media, so other than some friends who lived in Key West telling me about it, Im not sure theres any record left of the incident. Karen Cooper held a peaceful marriage ceremony and got attacked online. The woman who chained herself to a tree 30 years ago would have been roasted. These days, when you stand up for a cause, you really have to put yourself out on a limb (sorry, I couldnt help it). To those who marched last Saturday for gun control and allowed your image to be on the news, I applaud you. If you were part of the womens march, I applaud you. If youve ever held a sign in support of clean water, I applaud you. Its so easy to pound on a keyboard from the four walls of your living room and bully those who try to change the world but what people dont get is that the ones who are out there fighting, marching and even marrying trees are the strongest of us all. stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

More specifically, the group looked at the relative performance of two market sectors today and before the dot-com crash in 2000 to see if another stock market crash was likely today. What sectors did The Leuthold Group compare and can this analysis predict a future market meltdown? The Leuthold Group believed that in the final stages of a bull market, investors pile into very popular stocks that continue to make new highs and dump safe conservative stocks that are more defensive in nature. First the company compared the rate of return of tech stocks, the trendiest stocks before the 2000 crash, to utility stocks, the most conservative and least purchased. What the analysts found was that the corresponding rates of return stayed very consistent, around 1:1 until around 1995. Then the returns of IT sector and dot-com stocks started rising much more rapidly. By 1997, the ratio was 2:1 favoring the tech sector. In 1999, the ratio was 4:1. And in the months right before the stock market meltdown, the ratio exploded to over 6:1. After the crash, the returns on tech stocks compared to utility stocks dropped back to around 2:1 and the ratio stayed constant between around 2:1 to 3:1 for the next 15 years. This is normal, as an investor would demand to earn a greater return on more risky technology companies compared to boring utility companies that are more predictable and are owned more for their incomeproducing ability. However, starting last year, the ratio started to spike again. In the first months of this year, the ratio jumped to 5:1. Most of this increase was driven by the FANG stocks (Facebook, Apple, Netflix and Google) as well as depressed returns from utility stocks due to climbing interest rates. This is very similar to what happened in 2000. Does this mean that a stock market crash is imminent? The author of the report explains, While this does not suggest a massive collapse similar to the aftermath of the dot-com era is forthcoming, it is another reminder that the character of the current bull market has changed. An astute investor will understand that it is dangerous for a narrow sector of the market, dot-com stocks in 2000 and FANG stocks today, to drive so much of stock gains and so outpace the rest of the market. We saw this a couple of weeks ago when concerns about Facebook privacy drove the entire market down significantly. Just like the banking sector drove the total stock market into a significant correction, The Leutold Group is pointing out how tech stocks today can once again cause panic within all equities. Even if you dont own tech stocks, I would keep a close eye on how all these stocks are faring.

BUSINESS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY | A31 WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM SEE TV SHOW, A32 BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com In one episode of Great Neighborhood Cooks, Rob Kircher and his friend amble up the path to a big, pretty home in Bonita Springs where they are welcomed by Sherri DuPont and Dave DuPont. You may not know the DuPonts, but you know people like them: excellent home cooks whose recipes are largely unknown outside their circle of family and friends. Mr. Kircher is changing that with his new television show, which started airing across Southwest Florida on FOX 4 in January, each Sunday at 10 a.m. He is the executive producer and host of each half-hour episode about local, unheralded foodies in our midst, people who live down the street and around the corner.

Moderated by Tasheekia Perry, founder of Crowning Daughters for Success, inSights into Business Productivity Strategies will focus on the strategies three successful Naples business women Kathy Bingham, owner of Bingham Jewelers; Sharon Hood, founder and publisher of eBella Magazine; and Rebecca Seitz, founder and CEO of SON-TV & Film Studios have employed to improve their own productivity at critical business junctures. This is a common challenge for women entrepreneurs, who often must balance the demands of raising a family with the exigencies of building a thriving business. inSights programs are designed and produced by the women members of SCORE Naples to inform, motivate and energize a key segment of the local economy by building a sense of community and support for women entrepreneurs. No matter the topic, panelists transparently share the ups and downs of their own journeys, focusing on the things they learned in moving from a start-up to an established enterprise. Previous programs inSights into Successful Business Strategies, inSights into Business Growth Strategies and inSights into Business Marketing Strategies have been highly interactive, requiring participants to reflect on their own strengths and areas for improvement and come away with specific ideas and commitments for moving forward.

A32 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYand for revenue sells ad space to local businesses himself. His agreement with the network calls for him to produce 52 episodes through 2019, after which the shows could become syndicated, possibly through a digital television station or other TV affiliates. Aside from a bare-bones camera and sound crew, he creates the show himself, finding and interviewing qualified candidates, preparing them for what to expect, and usually spending about an hour or hour-and-a-half shooting each episode in their home. He edits that down to 29 minutes and 30 seconds to meet FOXs deadline each Thursday at noon. On the show featuring the DuPonts, Ms. DuPont, who runs a noted interior design firm, whips up a favorite easy artichoke dip in a beautiful kitchen. Thats followed by Mr. DuPont preparing marinated venison steaks on the grill. Finally, she makes an Apple-Nut Depression Cake from a recipe that was passed down the generations on her husbands side of the family, which can be traced back to early 16th century Spanish settlers in St. Augustine. It was actually one of his grandmothers recipes that Ive been making since he and I have been married, she said (45 years this year). Part of the pleasure of seeing them cook is being invited into their interesting kitchens and lives. Mr. Kircher looks for cooks who are characters, have a story to tell, and reflect the regions cultural diversity. For one up-and-coming episode, he paid a visit to the home of LJ Bury in Estero, where she and a group of friends from her neighborhood discussed how cooking helped her recover from the death of her husband, Ron, 2 years ago. Cooking was a love they shared, but baking was her specialty. She started delivering the goods to friends and neighbors who had been trying to help her regain a social life and pull her out of depression. On the show she makes their most-requested item, LJs Chocolate Almond PB&J Raspberry Squares. True to her Italian heritage and childhood on Long Island, they are served with Prosecco (also because she didnt have an espresso machine.) I thanked (Mr. Kircher) for doing the show because for me it was a thank you back to my friends and neighbors, she said. And a tribute to my husband who I believe was watching from above somehow. On one past episode at Cape Coral Yacht Club, Mr. Kircher visits Rey Irizarry, a Puerto Rican man who lives on a 38-foot boat with his better half, two children, and a little mighty stove where he cooks up spaghetti with lobster. Made in a small space with maximum efficiency, its prepared with a fragrant broth made with part of the lobster shell and garnished with fresh cilantro and asiago cheese. Its like I tell my friends, this will not be an authentic Italian plate, this will be an authentic Rey plate, he says. Great Neighborhood Cooks is an offshoot of Mr. Kirchers earlier cooking shows. A former TV news copy writer, sales manager and later ad agency owner in Rochester, N.Y., he and his wife moved to Florida in the late 1990s. Unhappy in retirement, he went back to freelance ad work and finally began producing a TV show called Better Health, Greater Wealth. It was inspired by his efforts to lose weight after his doctor warned he was obese, telling him, youll be lucky to see your next birthday. Mr. Kircher shot the episodes in his outdoor kitchen at home in Bonita Springs. He also dropped more than 50 pounds and says his energy is through the roof. With the new show, health is not a focus; one episode features an apple pie baked inside a cheesecake. Other dishes reflect healthier habits. At a fire station in Naples, the crew cooks up butternut squash lasagna; another guest prepares dishes based on a Paleo diet. His approach to the show is unique, he said, in a cooking show world full of how-to programs shot in a studio or cooking competitions. Mr. Kircher calls his an eavesdropping model or honest television, a more casual approach designed to be like going to visit a friend. Do not get gussied up, he tells cooks on the show. Do not go to the hair dresser the day before the show The other things is please, please, please, do not clean up your kitchen. And of course they always do. The show is scheduled to run for 52 episodes, through 2019. It airs on 10 a.m. each Sunday on WFTX-TV Fox 4 (HD 434, Direct TV 36). Full recipes and earlier episodes can be found on GreatNeighborhoodCooks.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 BUSINESS A33MEETINGSFrom page 32 I trace my roots b ack to 1955, w hen the United Business Services company, run by two Kansas City, Missouri, brothers, offered tax preparation services to its clients. Revenue more than tripled in a year. I started offering my services in cities where the IRS was discontinuing free tax prep services and soon adopted the franchising model. My services became more computerized in the 1980s, especially after I bought CompuServe. Now based in all 50 states and with about 12,000 offices and 70,000 tax pros worldwide, Ive prepared more than 720 million tax returns. I offer taxprep software, too. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Understanding Profit MarginsFor best results when evaluating, investing in and following stocks, you should know your way around the income statement (sometimes called the statement of operations), which summarizes sales and profits over a period of time, such as three months or a year.Consider McDonalds income statement for 2017. At the top, youll find net revenue (sometimes called sales). For McDonalds, its $22.8 billion. As you work your way down the income statement, various costs will be subtracted from revenue, leaving different levels of profit. The item youll find just under revenue is cost of goods sold (sometimes abbreviated as COGS or called cost of revenue), representing the cost of producing products or services sold. For McDonalds, its $12.2 billion. Subtract the COGS from revenues, and youll get a gross profit of $10.6 billion.To find the gross margin, which reflects the costs of production relative to revenue, simply divide the gross profit by revenue. Dividing $10.6 billion by $22.8 billion yields a gross margin of 0.46, or 46 percent. Its often illuminating to compare the results with peers. For example, gross margin is 58 percent for Wendys and 60 percent at Starbucks.Next, the remaining costs involved in operating the business, such as support staff salaries, utility bills and advertising expenses, are subtracted, leaving the operating profit. McDonalds operating profit is $9.6 billion. Dividing this by revenue yields an operating margin of about 42 percent. Crunching older numbers reveals that McDonalds operating margin is up from 28 percent two years earlier, reflecting great improvement. (Both Wendys and Starbucks sport operating margins of 18 percent.)Finally, after items such as taxes and interest payments are accounted for, we arrive at net income, near the bottom of the statement. McDonalds is $5.2 billion. Dividing that by revenue yields a hefty net profit margin of 23 percent. This number reflects how many pennies from every dollar of sales McDonalds keeps as profit. (Wendys net margin is 16 percent, and Starbuckss is 13 percent.) When it comes to profit margins, McDonalds is strong. Holding On, HopefullySo far the dumbest investing move Ive made has been investing in Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Israels largest drug manufacturer and a specialist in generic drugs, right before its recent freefall. (I lost around 50 percent of my $10,000 investment.) Despite this, I decided to dig in and hold on. I still think it will eventually rebound, at least to more than I paid for it. Im hoping the market overreacted, its new management will be effective and it will get some new medications approved. M.L., onlineThe Fool Responds: Teva has certainly been struggling recently, but plenty of investors remain hopeful about its future, some because they believe that generic drugs will be taking market share from non-generics in the coming years. You shouldnt be invested in the company, though, if you dont believe in its future and especially if there are other stocks that you believe will perform better from this point on. Dont think about holding on just to gain back your losses. You can always do that via stocks in which you have more confidence.Teva is still facing challenges, such as a heavy debt load due to acquisitions. It has also eliminated its dividend. On the other hand, its still generating a lot of cash and has cut costs significantly, in part by shrinking its workforce. One interesting development is that Warren Buffetts company has recently been buying shares of Teva. More Than a Phone CompanyThe days of seeing Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) as just a phone company are long gone. Its now a telecom giant with the biggest network of wireless customers, and its expanding its fiberoptic network and television services to increase value for customers. Increasing competition in the U.S. wireless game has taken a toll on market leader Verizon, however, shrinking its stock price. But that offers an opportunity for value investors. While many Verizon subscribers jumped ship in early 2017 in favor of rivals unlimited plans, Verizon reversed that trend by finally launching its own unlimited deal, which helped it add 1.2 million net customers in the fourth quarter. The super-fast wireless 5G network that Verizon is building out right now will drive the next phase of its growth, allowing consumers to connect home wireless devices to Verizons network, enabling self-driving cars, and perhaps even making virtual reality a mobile platform. Verizon also started its Oath media business, including the assets of internet acquisitions AOL and Yahoo. Offering both connectivity and content could prove to be a winning combination for Verizon as it looks for revenue streams beyond wireless. Telecommunications isnt a highgrowth business, but its a valuable and profitable one to be in for the long term. Verizons dividend recently yielded about 5 percent. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Verizon.) I trace my roots back to 1972, when a guy founded me as a mail-order business to sell small telescopes. Over time, I offered more and more products for amateur astronomers. Im known for innovation, such as my telescopes that feature auto-guiding systems to easily align on objects of interest. Today, based in Irvine, California, Im the worlds leading designer and maker of telescopes, and I offer many binoculars and optical accessories, too. In 2013 I merged with Sunny Optics, a subsidiary of a Chinese company. My brands include Coronado, SolarMax, LightBridge, LightSwitch, Wilderness and Astro. Who am I? (Answer: Meade Instruments) Low Price, High DividendQI found a stock thats priced at less than $1 per share, but it pays out more than $1 per share in dividends. Good buy? Bad idea? E.P., Sacramento, CaliforniaABad idea. Stocks trading for less than about $5 per share are penny stocks, which tend to be volatile and risky. With dividend payers, you want them to be generating more in earnings per share than theyre paying out in dividends so that their payouts are sustainable and unlikely to be reduced or eliminated. Hefty dividends are great, but a company needs to be strong enough to sustain them. ***QA stock I own nearly tripled in value before pulling back, leaving me with a double. Should I have sold it when I could have reaped that big gain and rebought it when the price dropped? Or am I right to just wait, hoping to gain more in the long run? O.M., onlineAIf you knew that it had temporarily peaked and was about to fall, then selling would have been a good move. But you cant know precisely what a stock is going to do. When you buy a stock, you should have an idea of the degree to which its undervalued. Ideally, youll have estimated its intrinsic value. If the stock surges well beyond that value, then sell, because its reasonably likely to fall from that point. If a stock keeps rising within reason, though, and the company remains healthy and growing, then over time its intrinsic value will rise, too and you can do well by just hanging on for the long term. Measures such as P/E (price-to-earnings) ratios can give you a rough idea of valuation. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.com.

Even with the increase in activity, however, the index is 4.1 percent below a year ago.Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says the housing market has gotten off to an uneven start so far in 2018. Contract signings rebounded in most areas in February, but the gains were not large enough to keep up with last Februarys level, which was the second highest in over a decade (112.1), Mr. Yun said. The expanding economy and healthy job market are generating sizeable homebuyer demand, but the miniscule number of listings on the market and its adverse effect on affordability are squeezing buyers and suppressing overall activity.SEE NABOR, B31
B4 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYRemaining Seaglass residences to feature designer-selected finishesWith its 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower at Bonita Bay on schedule for completion this summer, The Ronto Group announced it is finishing the buildings remaining tower residences in high-end finish packages and color schemes selected by awardwinning interior designer Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, President and Principal Designer of Renee Gaddis Interiors. Seaglass features fully-completed residences with premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Three furnished models are open for viewing with a sales associate.

Ten-foot ceiling heights are included per plan. Gaddis has created three on-trend finish and color palette designs that will appeal to luxury homebuyers. The first design is anchored by a palette that features shades of grey. The wall tones will be a soft grey presented against plank style wood-look tile flooring in the living areas and on the terraces. Off-white kitchen counter surfaces with subtle grey speckles will contrast the designs darker grey cabinetry and sleek brushed nickel hardware. The cabinetry and counter surfaces will be repeated in the owners bath where beautiful offwhite tile flooring will include soft grey veining. The baths in the guest bedrooms will feature elegant charcoal grey cabinetry with contemporary hardware and topped by soft grey counters with delicate accents. The floors and shower walls will be finished with light grey tile with understated darker highlights. Gaddis second design features neutral cream tones that will compliment a diverse array of furniture selections. Light wall tones will bring softness to the look and play against creamy tile flooring in the living areas that will include delicate highlights. The den will showcase medium-toned wood flooring. In the kitchen, Gaddis has selected light creamy cabinetry with a uniquely shaped inset that will be topped with cream-toned counters with randomly shaped speckled accents and contemporary brushed nickel hardware. The owners bath will feature darktoned cabinetry contrasted by off-white countertops and ultra-soft cream tile flooring and shower walls with faint highlights.

B6 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThe healthy lifestyle at MediterraJust what the doctor ordered!I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and that youre continuing to enjoy our glorious winter season in Naples! As youve probably noticed in my weekly missives, Ive discovered that life at Mediterra is all about choices. Think about it lushly landscaped streetscapes, soothing water features, a majestic clubhouse, and luxurious residences set against golf course, preserve, and water views all reflect Mediterras award-winning history. No wonder Mediterra has been named Recipient of The Collier Building Industry Associations Sand Dollar Award for Community of the Year Over $1 Million 11 times over the past 15 years! That said, what I believe truly sets Mediterra apart is that it offers the very real possibility of living a healthy, active lifestyle. We all know how important that is. At Mediterra, it just seems like every aspect of life presents another opportunity to stay focused on improving my personal health and well-being. For example, whether Im enjoying lunch or dinner at the communitys clubhouse, or at the Beach Club on Little Hickory Island, The Club at Mediterras menu offers options for maintaining a healthy diet. Carmen Mauceri is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, a winner of the American Culinary Federation Award of Excellence and has served as a Chef de Cuisine for a Presidential Dinner. Under his direction, the Club creates dining concepts that include a doctors orders menu with healthy items. I love that! Of course, the clubhouse has turned into one of my favorite places. It has both formal and informal dining, the Tavern outdoor lounge experience that my new friends and I love, and an outdoor terrace with firepits that overlooks the communitys golf courses. The clubhouse is never stuffy. Its a place with a relaxed atmosphere where informal attire is always welcomed. Theyre going to be expanding the clubhouse this year with 24,000 square feet of additional covered outdoor terrace and lounge areas and enhancements to 7,000 square feet of the existing clubhouse. Whats amazing is these great things are happening without a member assessment. Every amenity at Mediterra supports an active, health-oriented lifestyle. The Sports Club has a fitness center with all the newest equipment and offers fitness classes ranging from aerobics to Zumba, wellness programs, personal trainers, aesthetic services, three spa rooms, and a swimming pool with a sunning deck and smoothie bar. The tennis program includes a tennis pro shop and eight Har-Tru tennis courts. A lot of the tennis players Ive met love cardio tennis. Its awesome! We run and hit tennis balls while listening to upbeat music. Its a cardio workout more than a tennis activity, but the ball striking lets beginners get more comfortable with the game while working on their fitness. Im looking forward to getting involved with Mediterras new pickleball program. Three new pickleball courts have a Laykold masters gel surface that reduces the force of impact by 17%. Thats huge for older knees like mine. Im also planning on being one of the more than 600 members who compete on the Clubs bocce ball courts. Bocce has become a huge way of staying active and socializing. Walking is another great way of staying active. Mediterras beautiful parks are connected by nearly eight miles of walking and biking trails. The peaceful parks will be a great place for some quiet me time. Speaking of peaceful, they have group yoga sessions on the lawn in front of the clubhouse during season. Youve probably read about my first golf experience at Mediterra. What a wonderful staff and the two golf courses designed by Tom Fazio are amazingly beautiful. The courses weave their way along sparkling lakes, wetlands, and nature preserves. As beautiful as they are playable, each of the courses presents design characteristics and unique challenges for golfers of every skill level. Theres also a Golf Learning Center. They only allow 225 members per 18 holes, so there are plenty of tee times. Ive raved about Mediterras private Beach Club many times. I love it and have never seen anything quite like it anywhere else. No other community that Ive visited in Southwest Florida can match it. In addition to casual indoor and outdoor dining Ive already mentioned, the Beach Club offers an elevated swimming pool, a huge sundeck, and cabana service for beach chairs and umbrellas that make it easy to enjoy the Clubs beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Swimming in the pool or Gulf, and paddle boarding through the surf are terrific exercise activities. As part of a recently completed renovation, the Beach Clubs bar area took on a sportier feeling with large screen televisions. It also morphed into a wine bar overseen by Mediterras two sommeliers. An extensive wine list includes 20 wines for $20 per bottle. The chefs vary the menu while keeping all the favorite healthy dishes, like seared ahi tuna with a glass-noodle stir fry, and a smoked-chicken pasta offering with sun-dried tomatoes. The place is beautiful and conveys the magic of the beach with soothing colors and a South Beach-style casual elegance. You need to check Mediterra out for yourself. Theyre having a special Model Showcase event the next few weekends. Its a perfect opportunity for you to see why I love this place so much. Dont miss it! Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Parkway two miles north of Immokalee Road. The Sales Center and model residences are open daily. Call (239) 298-7600.

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYEven more to love at London Bay Homes second Port Royal estate modelSpeechless. I cant even tell you how many times my husband and I just stood in silence taking in the views or only simply could get out the word wow as we toured London Bay Homes custom estate model at 4375 Gordon Drive in Port Royal. It started the moment we stepped inside and saw right out to the glistening water of Cutlass C ove, the mangroves of Keewaydin Island and the picturesque foliage-framed pass that provides quick access to the Gulf of Mexico. Hello, boat, I thought as I walked up to the great rooms floor-to-ceiling windows, my eye diverted to the pools shimmering mosaic gray tile. I imagined the parties and overnight guests we could host throughout its 6,394 square feet either in the formal dining room or on the large patio, which has an outdoor kitchen. Then, I followed the steps down to a secluded firepit, my husband and Toby Cloutier, our London Bay Homes sales executive, trying to keep up. I soaked in the view then turned to look at the pool, noticing the two water features on each side of the steps and three water spouts in the wall above the pool. All finished in the same beautiful mosaic tile. Although the model is under construction, I could easily envision the calming sight and sound of the water. Toby pointed out the rounded tiled edges of the spa bench. Its very comfortable, he said. I marveled at that obvious attention to detail something Ive never seen before and how the pools water will be flush with the deck surface. Inside, we discovered more features and finishes weve come to recognize as an enhanced luxury of a London Bay home, with interior design by Romanza. Details like an opaque glass window between the dining room and floating staircase, light ash wood flooring, lacquered kitchen cabinets, and the sheen of gold subway tiled walls in one guest shower and the blue in another. Our love affair with Naples has reached the point where were very serious about buying a new home, and London Bay is our first choice. Weve been exploring the many opportunities offered by its Naples Collection, which features fully furnished custom models and the option to build on a homesite of our choice. London Bays downtown estates were just a quick stroll to Fifth Avenue South and our favorite bartender at Bar Tulia. Then, Toby introduced us to the two models on Gordon Drive, near the southern point of Port Royal and our vision became even grander. At 4375 Gordon Drive, wed have membership eligibility at the beachfront Cutlass Cove Beach Club and a larger private dock for a 37-foot boat. This estate has four guest rooms on its second floor and amenities that would accommodate our many visitors an elevator, loft and lounge sitting areas, a wet bar and a terrace overlooking the pool and cove. One VIP suite has a large bay window with glorious cove views; another is a guest apartment with its own morning bar. Each has a resort-style bathroom. The first-floor master suite is also incredible, and the bedroom has a floor-toceiling bay window overlooking the cove. There are also two large walk-in closets with plenty of room for my new designer outfits from Marissa Collections on nearby Third Street South, a lovely shopping and dining district we recently discovered. The estate also has a study for my husband to work from home, although he recently confessed hes rethinking that plan.Theres just so much to do in Naples I dont think I could concentrate. I cant let you have all the fun, he joked. Ah, so the plot thickens: It looks like well be buying a home pretty soon.

B22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays clubhouse a phenomenal amenityStrong 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 fourbedroom/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 adultsonly pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a fitness center, 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 Delnor-Wiggins 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.

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.

With the spring buying season in full swing, Mr. Yun believes that one of the top wild cards for the housing market in coming months will be how both buyers and potential sellers adjust to the steady climb in mortgage rates since late last year. Prospective buyers continue to feel the strain of swift price growth up 5.9 percent so far in 2018 and the higher borrowing costs will only add to the pressures placed on their budget. Meanwhile, more would-be sellers deciding to balk at listing their home for sale out of uneasiness of losing their low mortgage rate especially if they refinanced in recent years would not be good news for any alleviation of the ongoing supply shortages in much of the country. Homeowners are already staying in their homes at an all-time high before selling, and any situation where they remain put even longer only exacerbates the nations inventory crunch, Mr. Yun said. Even if new home construction starts picking up at a faster pace this year, as expected, existing sales will fail to break out if these record low supply levels do not recover enough to meet demand. Mr. Yun forecasts existing-home sales for 2018 to be around 5.51 million flat from 2017. The national median existing-home price is expected to increase around 4.2 percent. In 2017, existing sales increased 1.1 percent and prices rose 5.8 percent. The pending homes sales index in the Northeast surged 10.3 percent to 96.0 in February, but is still 5.1 percent below a year ago. In the Midwest the index inched forward 0.7 percent to 98.9 in February, but was 9.5 percent lower than February 2017. Pending home sales in the South rose 3 percent to an index of 125.7 in February this year, which was 1.5 percent lower than last February. The index in the West climbed 0.4 percent in February to 96.9, but was 2.2 percent below a year ago.

How about ourselves and our countrys general lack of self-awareness in these trying times? Lucky for us, Naples artist John Carroll Long has created something that might just save us from ourselves in his new book of illustrations, Adorables and Deplorables: A Creative Look at the World. Drawing mostly in Prismacolor pencils, Mr. Long compiled 230 images featuring 50 characters that call out how silly our current attitudes are about a variety of topics. Its up to the viewer, however, to decide whether each character is either an adorable or a deplorable. I decided to take on all the subject matter no artists in their right mind wouldnt want to take on, like the NRA, bigotry, religion. The characters are actually waiting to be judged, he said. But this is not heavy-handed stuff. By blending surrealism, frenetic movement, jokes and poems, Mr. Longs goal of pointing out the absurdity of modern attitudes results in only a gentle ribbing or sympathetic nod that he doesnt pro-Artist John Long delivers humor with teethSEE WEIGHT, C4 EORGE HARRISON called The Band the best band in the history of the universe.

Collier Blvd. Suite 303, Marco Island, FL 34145 Tedeschi Trucks Band now a well-oiled unit BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIOFlorida Weekly CorrespondentAutomobile magnate Henry Ford once said, Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. And while this may be an odd source to reflect how far the Tedeschi Trucks Band has come, understand that since Susan Tedeschi and her husband, Derek Trucks, decided to join creative forces in 2010, theyve attained quite a number of milestones. Since merging their bands, the TTB has blossomed into a 12-piece group, released three studio albums, two live albums and had its 2011 debut album, Revelator land a 2012 Grammy for Best Blues Album. The group plays April 12 at Barbara B. Mann in Fort Myers. At a time when the music industry is fragmented and the current trend seems to be about minimizing and having an artists output be more singles-driven, the idea of being a large touring outfit very much committed to recording complete albums can be a scary proposition. And Trucks admits he and his wife received plenty of cautionary advice when they decided to join their bands after watching the 1971 rock documentary Mad Dogs and Englishmen. I remember seeing that, thinking about having a horn section and saying we should give it a shot. Our manager and all the people that are our devils advocate asked if we were sure and if we wanted that many people on the road, Trucks recalled with a laugh, during a recent phone interview. We decided we were going to do it and we did. There were some headwinds for the first few years because I think people wanted it to be her band or my band. For the first few years, we avoided songs from her catalog or my catalog. We did tunes that the band was writing or tunes that we had not played before. We wanted it to stand on its own and sink or swim. And if we got through those first few years, the momentum would hopefully start carrying it. Suffice it to say, the Tedeschi Trucks Band has evolved into a well-oiled unit that fuses Tedeschis bluesy playing and soulful phrasing with Trucks biting slide work and extended jamming thats on full display on Live From the Fox Oakland, the recently released 2-CD/1-DVD set that is also the bands second live outing. Not unlike the aforementioned Mad Dogs set, this Tedeschi Trucks set mixes in originals, while also pulling from the canons of a wide array of artists including Sleepy John Estes, Miles Davis, The Beatles, Santana, and in a nod to that other Joe Cocker live double-album, a riveting reading of Leonard Cohens Bird On a Wire. For Trucks, its an accurate reflection of the current state the band. The band was in a great spot late last year. There had been some personnel changes over the last handful of years and it had evolved into this place where the music was getting more exploratory, he said. We were starting to hit on things that we hadnt hit on before and maybe some of the tunes had started to open up. Originally we were just going to film it and then we decided to record the whole tour and do a live record as well. We happened to catch a great night on film that we thought should also be a record. I thought it was nice that it all lined up. Interestingly enough, the Tedeschi Trucks Band took the inspiration behind that legendary 1971 Cocker caravan tour that nearly destroyed the late singer and went so far as to re-create a substantial amount of Mad Dogs in September 2015 at Virginias Lockn Festival. And while Cocker was originally supposed to participate, he pulled out in 2014, eventually succumbing to cancer in December of that year. The show became a tribute to the late English vocalist, and included a number of musicians that had participated in the initial Mad Dogs tour, including keyboardist Leon Russell, keyboardist Chris Stainton and singers Rita Coolidge and Claudia Lennear. Trucks admitted uncertainty about how things were going to go, but felt better once Russell was on board. When we were asked about doing it as a Cocker tribute, we didnt know at COURTESY PHOTOSSince merging their bands, the TTB has blossomed into a 12-piece group.
first, Trucks said. But then we reached out to Leon Russell and once he was in then it felt right and all of the original cast was gung ho. That was a special few days of rehearsal and then the show. With both Tedeschi and Trucks having so much material from which to draw, fans can expect a rich mix of songs from different points of the duos musical journey in the groups current live show. The group is also working up material for a new studio effort that could quite possibly emerge by years end. We recently got back from about a month in Europe and had a little break, Trucks said. At some point, the band is going to stay in the studio to revisit about eight or 10 tunes that are floating around in various states of completion. But were going to go in and keep writing because everybodys mind is on the next studio record right now. At this point (in our live shows), we feel like this band is now a part of our history and musical life to the point where well play tunes from her catalog or mine. Or even an Allmans tune (Trucks was a member of the Allman Brothers Band from 1999 to 2014) here or there things that weve been a part of. We dont have to keep it all separated. For us, its this is what were doing. Its all fair game.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 5-11, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYCripple Creek, Rag Mama Rag, Stage Fright The Shape Im In and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down all are songs intricately woven through the fabric of our individual and joint histories. So you cant blame Jim Weider for wanting to continue the legacy of The Band. He and The Weight Band will do so in a concert Saturday night, April 7, at the Center for the Performing Arts in Bonita Springs. Weider, a master of the telecaster guitar who also plays a killer mandolin, joined The Band when it regrouped in 1985, replacing Robbie Robertson as lead guitarist. (Robertson and organist/ accordionist/saxophonist Garth Hudson are the only original members of The Band still alive. Drummer/mandolin player Levon Helm, bassist/fiddler Rick Danko and keyboardist/percussionist Richard Manual are gone.) We worked hard on the road, constantly, Weider recalls. It was night after night. We never stayed in the same city. We drove. We did some flying. Mostly it was just a lot of hard road work, and great times, too a lot of laughing, a lot of war stories in the back of the bus. Those guys were always about the music. At the end of the night, while on the road to the next city, theyd listen to how they had sounded that night, having recorded it. The experience, he says, was inspiring. It was always about playing 110 percent. Weiders first tour with The Band was with Crosby, Stills and Nash. The group also played with Dylan, Mavis Staples, Roy Buchanan, Lonnie Mack, Emmylou Harris, Steve Winwood. Any stories? A few I could probably tell thats legal, he says with a grin. Helm, he says, was just a down-toearth guy. He took the time out to talk to the local carpenters or butchers and other musicians. He was really generous with his time and always had your back. You didnt have to worry. If you had a problem, you could say, This is not working, really. Can we fix it? He had amazing strength of character He was very kind and took the time for everybody.ContinuingA year after Helms death in 2012, Weider and his bandmates began performing The Band catalog around the country, wanting to keep the music going because there had always been such a positive response to it. The Weight Band is not a cover band or a tribute band, Weider stresses, adding each of its members Marty Grebb (keyboards, sax and vocals), Albert Rogers (bass, vocals), Brian Mitchell (keyboard, vocals) and Michael Bram (drums, vocals) has a deep connection to The Band. Weider played with The Band for 15 years; between them, the others have played in The Band, the Levon Helm Band and the Rick Danko Group and the Garth Hudson Band. Bram has also played at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, N.Y., drumming with an offshoot of Helms band, The Barnburners. As The Weight Band, the five trade off vocals, and many of them play multiple instruments. We mix up the music the way The Band did, Weider says. We have the raw rock n roll thing The Band had, and the vocals and the harmonies.The fathers of AmericanaIronically, though The Band is known for playing roots Americana music, the original line-up consisted of four Canadians and a lone American (Helm, who was from Arkansas.) And though the group longer exists, Weider saw a need for its music to continue. A native of Woodstock, where he still lives, he remembers the first time he heard The Band perform. It was at New Paltz (a state university in upstate New York.) It was about 7 or They were fantastic. They were my hometown heroes. They lived here (in Woodstock), Dylan and The Band. And when they made a record, Music from Big Pink, it was great. I loved it. I would see them around town once in a while. Then I actually got to see them perform at the Woodstock Festival. I got to see my favorite bands of the time. What a period of music, from Joe Cocker to Sly Stone to The Who to The Band to Hendrix. Those people laid the groundwork. Nothings come close to surpass it; theyre just copying it. The Band is Americana. They started it. Theyre the fathers of it. Its rootsy sound, a gumbo of gospel, country, folk, blues and rock, has influenced many of todays bands, including The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons and the Avett Brothers. Theyre a little slicker, Weider says of those groups. The Band was that raw, really raw live musical sound. In addition to guitars, drums and bass, its instrumentation included organ, accordion, saxophone, mandolin and fiddle, creating an organic sound not commonly played on rock radio.The WeightThe Weight Band, of course, takes its name from the classic song by The Band. Its like a comfort zone, Weider says about The Weight. When we play it, everybody sings along. Ive been playing it for almost 45 years, if not longer. It means help your brother out, take a load off and help each other out. Its a positive tune with very smart lyrics. The Anna Lee mentioned in the song was good friends with Levon, he adds. Shes from Arkansas too. Though the opening line I pulled into Nazareth, I was feeling bout half past dead sounds biblical, songwriter Robbie Robertson has revealed in interviews that its really a reference to Nazareth, Pa., where Martin guitars are made. More than 100 others have recorded The Weight, including The Staple Singers, Aretha Franklin, Joe Cocker, The Chambers Brothers, Jackie DeShannon, Cassandra Wilson, the Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band and Diana Ross and Supremes with the Temptations.Originals and classicsAt the upcoming concert in Bonita Springs, The Weight Band will play original songs from its new World Gone Mad album as well as classics by The Band. We wanted to write an album that sounds like The Band, so we could transition from Band songs into our songs, Weider says. The whole idea is to sound like The Band, and we play like that (naturally.) In our shows, we do the classic songs, then we go into our new tunes off the album. Its like wearing an old shoe. Itll be comfortable, it wont be like its a totally different thing. As the Chicago Sun-Times has said, The Weight Band carries on where The Band left off. Its albums title song comments about the craziness of todays world: Lions and elephants running around/Looks like the circus is back in town/Screaming and hollering like chimpanzees/ Fighting one another on my TV/Living in a world gone mad. Another tune, Youre Never Too Old to Rock and Roll, stresses that, though somewhat older, the musicians dont plan on stopping: Your hair turns silver/Your teeth turn gold/Come on, get up, get out of control/Youre never too old to rock n roll. Every night I go out to play, I try to play the best I possibly can. Thats one of my drives, Weider says. And as long as he can play, hell keep performing. I have to practice a little more, to keep my hands in shape, the 66-yearold confesses. You have to keep your muscles in shape. So far, so good. When people hear us, theyll say that theres no doubt that these guys were in The Band, he promises. Were carrying on the legacy.

Perhaps its his experience as a syndicated cartoonist that lends him his knack for observing the absurd, but in his mind, humor is one of the best vehicles for communicating with viewers. Hes an accomplished fine artist who works in many mediums, from painting to installations to photography, but books of his illustrations give him an outlet for his fun side while still allowing him to tackle serious subject matter. Combining the two sides requires that Mr. Long is educated on all the topics he wants to tackle, which isnt easy. Many artists take a facile approach to topics they present, but he puts in the work to have an understanding of science, religion and politics so his works have the intended effect. My interests aside from art are science, physics, religions ethical aspects and humans need for it, he said. Youve got to know your subject. And when I do humor, I like it to have some teeth. And his illustrations do nibble at the edges of viewers natural attitudes. For instance, in Adorables and Deplorables, Smoggy the Clown says whatever he wants and its just a part of his character. Viewers dont have to like him, but hes also a useful vehicle for letting it rip, Mr. Long said. Another character, a bum based on a person the artist knew when he lived in Detroit, has moments of insight in one illustration and goes off the rails in his next appearance. Smoggys very bright, he said. But the bum can be smart sometimes and whacked out other times. He peppered the book with people who are close to him, like his brother and mother, or characters everyone is familiar with, like Einstein. There are representatives of all walks of life, he said. Theres a politician I love thats just a cutout board. And theres a cow gotta have a cow, I love cows. And Darth Mickey, hes an interesting character. Despite Mr. Longs long career as a cartoonist with King Features where he made regular appearances in illustrious publications including the Chicago Tribune and The Washington Post, he doesnt consider these drawings to be cartoons. Its not a giggly, goofy, silly cutesy kind of thing, he said about Adorables and Deplorables. If its not heavy on one page, you turn the page and it is. Some of these characters could be pulled out of the book, painted life-size and be shown at a museum.The silver liningDamages delivered by Hurricane Irma in September forced the temporary closure of Up Art & Design Contemporary, the downtown gallery/studio Mr. Long and his architect wife Andrea Clark Brown shared. The closure allowed him the opportunity to work on Adorables and Deplorables, which he plans to follow up with a sequel and a book of poetry. In the meantime, Mr. Longs fine art projects are on exhibit at ArtisNaples. Visitors can see Unlimited: the MultiFaceted Work of John Carroll Long through Saturday, April 21.

NAPLESZOO.ORGCome meet these playful African Penguins before they leave town! At Naples Zoo now through April 29, 2018. PENGUINS PARADISEINPENGUINS PARADISE ARTS COMMENTARYMiss Keller a precious commodity at Gulfshore PlayhouseWhen Stephen King wrote about fictional author Paul Sheldon held captive by his No. 1 fan, who chops off one of his feet and demands he write more books in the series she loves, readers were horrified. (The novel, Misery, was later made into a movie starring Kathy Bates and James Caan.) But what fan hasnt wished their favorite author would just write the damn books faster? They might not consider going as far as the captor in Misery does, but might have fantasized about housing the author in the attic or a spare bedroom to churn out books for their personal pleasure. After all, not every writer is as prodigious as Joyce Carol Oates or Alexander McCall Smith, who seem almost superhuman with the speed with which they write. Game of Thrones fans are clamoring for George R.R. Martins next book, and the TV series based on his novels surpassed his storyline in print. And what lover of The Catcher in the Rye wasnt upset when JD Salinger became a recluse and refused to keep publishing? Fans can even grow perturbed if they feel their favorite authors (or musicians or actors) are being stingy with facts about their personal life, as if we need to know or own everything about them. So you cant blame author Agnes Keller for wanting her privacy in Miss Keller Has No Second Book, the humorous and insightful play enjoying its world premiere at the Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples, where it was originally a reading (and audience favorite) in the professional companys 2016 New Works Festival. Fifty years ago, Agnes (a delightfully curmudgeonly Amy Van Nostrand) wrote a book that achieved worldwide fame. But the novel also caused her to be alienated from her family, with the exception of her younger sister Ramona (Maureen Silliman), who has faithfully stuck by her side over the years. Agnes and Ramona share a house in Iowa. Ramona is the one who takes care of their bills, gets the groceries and interacts with the outside world. She deals with the business side of Agnes writing career and also serves as her editor/ sounding board/cheerleader. She protects Agnes from unwanted intrusions. Ms. Silliman plays this role perfectly, sunny and good-natured, thoughtful and helpful. The actress imbues her character with a basic, simple goodness that almost shines. She is as endearing as Ms. Van Nostrand is prickly and off-putting, the sugar to her sisters salt. These two actors have a chemistry together and its easy to believe theyre sisters. As Agnes, Ms. Van Nostrand is as welcoming as a porcupine, quills out at the slightest hint of provocation. And, I admit, its wildly entertaining to see a character of a certain age just boldly speak her mind and say what she thinks. (She says New Yorker as if its a curse word.) Ms. Van Nostrand doesnt overplay the role and also allows us to see Agnes vulnerability. Agnes is obsessing over her second novel, wanting every paragraph, every sentence, every word, to be right. She cowers from the world, peering at it occasionally from behind her curtained door. When outsiders show up on the doorstep, demanding her time, not even Ramona can help her. Alex Grubbs plays Jackson, a relative who returns to the nest, trying to make amends. Full of ambiguity and struggle, Jackson has not made the best decisions in life. Hannah Mae Sturges plays a neighbor, 19-year-old Katelyn, full of herself but ignorant of how little she truly knows. Like many her age, she lives her life on social media and doesnt understand or respect others need for privacy. James Lloyd Reynolds rounds out the cast as Darryl, a slick New York literary agent. He tells Agnes hes there to help her, but hes condescending and as selfcentered as Katelyn. It is difficult to talk about this play without giving away its many surprises. Playwright Deb Hiett knows how to seesaw between humor and pathos, reveling in the quirkiness of humans while also showing us their heartache. She raises the question: What does an artist owe her public, if anything? She also manages to address the themes of forgiveness, familial and literary obligation and dealing with change. In addition, her play examines the contrasting worlds of various generations, and the difference between those raised on print and those born into a digital society. With the exception of Agnes, she gives each character one or more monologues throughout the play, little snapshots into their personalities. The only negative note I have is that I wish some of the characters had been fleshed out more. But perhaps I just wanted to spend more time in their company. Director Emilie Beck stages this play creatively with many magical moments, putting her innovative mark on this brand new offering. David L. Arsenaults set is a typical writers house, filled with piles of books and notepads. The backdrop is a wall of boxes, books and filing cabinets. Mr. Arsenault somehow manages to make it simultaneously minimalist and crowded. Lighting designer Jimmy Lawlor makes creative use of light throughout the play, ending some scenes in a way that made the audience gasp. Miss Keller Has No Second Book is one of those rare things in theater: a new play that works on all levels, has a superlative cast and grabs your heart and wont let go. It reminds us that time is our most precious commodity. Im glad I spent some of my most precious commodity with Miss Keller. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Miss Keller Has No Second Book>> Who: Gulfshore Playhouse >> When: Through April 15 >> Where: The Norris Center, Naples >> Cost: $20-$59 >> Info: 866-811-4111 or www.gulfshoreplayhouse.org COURTESY PHOTOThe Keller sisters: Agnes (a delightfully curmudgeonly Amy Van Nostrand, left) and Ramona (the good-natured and helpful Maureen Silliman) in the house they share in Miss Keller Has No Second Book.

CONTRACT BRIDGEFamous handBY STEVE BECKERThis deal, from the 1956 U.S.-Italy world championship match, became famous not because it was brilliantly played, but because it wasnt. The American team gained 750 points when it bid and made a grand slam in diamonds while the Italians stopped in a small slam. Both declarers made all the tricks on identical lines of play, but the fact is that they each missed the correct way to try to score 13 tricks. At both tables, declarer won the club lead with the ace and cashed five diamonds and five spades, leaving South with just the Q-10 of hearts. On the last spade, West, who held the queen of clubs and K-8 of hearts, had to discard in front of dummys A-9 of hearts and jack of clubs. Both Wests discarded a heart, and declarer won the last two tricks with the ace and queen of hearts. This line of play succeeded only because West, who was marked with the queen of clubs, also had the king of hearts. However, a method of play was available that would have succeeded even if East had the king. The best chance for 13 tricks is to win the club, ruff a club, cash the K-Q of diamonds and ruff another club. Declarer then leads a spade to the jack and ruffs dummys last club with the ace. A heart to the ace followed by the jack of trumps allows declarer to discard the heart ten and then run his spades to make seven. The recommended play works whenever the diamonds break 3-2, a 68 percent probability. The approach adopted by both declarers wins only when West has the heart king, a 50 percent chance, and is still available if the diamonds divide 4-1. At this level of competition, it is surprising that neither declarer found the line of play that offered the maximum chance of scoring 13 tricks. Even worldfamous experts, it appears, have blind spots.

Director Steven Spielbergs latest delivers great visuals and action, but the retro pop culture references, along with the classic rock soundtrack, are what make this an absolute blast. Rated PG-13.Unsane (Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Amy Irving) A woman (Foy) moves to a new town to avoid a stalker (Leonard), but soon finds him working in the mental hospital to which shes involuntarily committed. Its the first time director Steven Soderbergh has ventured into psychological thriller territory, and the results are creepy enough to call it a success. Rated R.The Hurricane Heist (Maggie Grace, Toby Kebbell, Ralph Ineson) A U.S. Treasury officer (Grace) must stop a $600 million heist as a Category Five hurricane hits the fictional town of Gulfport, Ala. The action is merely adequate, and there are ample gaps of logic and reality. Its not even so bad its good, which makes it even worse. Rated PG-13.Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyongo) King TChalla (Boseman), a.k.a. the Black Panther, must defend his country against Erik Killmonger (Jordan), who has a mysterious tie to TChallas past. The action is creative, the story is solid, and its darn fun. Why cant all Hollywood blockbusters be like this? Rated PG-13. The Party (Kristen Scott-Thomas, Patricia Clarkson, Timothy Spall) A seven-person dinner party goes awry when long held secrets are exposed. The solid cast does what it can with the material, but theres too much going on in the scant 71-minute running time for any of it to register. Rated R.7 Days In Entebbe (Rosamund Pike, Daniel Bruhl, Eddie Marsan) Terrorists hijack an Air France flight to Tel Aviv in the hope of embarrassing the Israeli government in negotiations. Sadly, theres little suspense and its almost always dull. Rated PG-13.Peter Rabbit (Voices of Margot Robbie, James Corden, Daisy Ridley) Peter Rabbit (Corden) likes to steal food from poor old Mr. McGregor (Sam Neill), but Peter gets more than he bargained for when McGregors nephew (Domhnall Gleeson) moves into the house. Will children enjoy it, and will parents find it tolerable? The answer for both is: More than youd expect, but not as much as youd like. Based on the stories of Beatrix Potter. Rated PG.Happy End (Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Mathieu Kassovitz) In the northern French city of Calais, the Laurent family struggles with business and one another in writer/director Michael Hanekes (Amour) latest. Its intentionally confounding at times, but its also a fascinating look at the good and bad of life and the secrets we keep hidden. Rated R.

YesEdward Ted Kennedy was the youngest son of business tycoon Joseph Kennedy, a man who valued money, power and the prestige of the Kennedy name above all else. Ted no doubt felt immense pressure to follow in the footsteps of his highly successful (and tragically assassinated) older brothers John and Bobby, and to his credit, Ted was a United States senator for more than 47 years before he died in 2009. And yet in his fathers eyes, Ted was a disappointment. Chappaquiddick tells the story and tells it well of how it all went wrong for Ted. In July 1969, he got into a car accident in Chappaquiddick, Mass., and lost two things: the life of his companion in the car, Mary Jo Kopechne, and his chance to become president of the United States. What happened, how it went down and who was responsible for Mary Jos death forms the core of Chappaquiddick. Its a solid drama that wisely doesnt take sides. Instead, director John Curran presents the events that led to Mary Jos death in a way that feels straightforward given all we could possibly know without being there, which is as much as we could ask. July 1969 is roughly a year after Bobbys assassination, and Ted (Jason Clarke) misses his brother dearly. Already a senator, Ted is letting the pressure of a possible presidential run in 2 get to him. Hes drinking, and its implied hes womanizing as well. As the story begins, he invites a bunch of his buddies, including his cousin Joe Gargan (Ed Helms) and former U.S. Attorney Paul Markham (Jim Gaffigan), to Chappaquiddick for the weekend. He also invites Boiler Room girls, women who worked on Bobbys presidential campaign who just happen to be single. The cover story is that theyre there for a sailing competition, but really its just an excuse for debauchery. Fair enough as long as all are willing participants, and that appears to be the case. Late one night, and after too many drinks, Ted takes Mary Jo (Kate Mara) for a drive. He speeds down a dark dirt road, loses control of the car and goes over the side of a small bridge, flipping the car in the process. Ted escapes, Mary Jo does not; he insists he went back to try to get her out multiple times. We can only take his word for it. With the help of Taylor Allen and Andrew Logans thoroughly researched script, Curran assembles the clearest and most likely version of events based on what we know as facts. Obviously, only two people really know what happened that night, and theyre both dead. Whats fascinating is not just the circumstances surrounding the events, but also the extent to which Ted uses the power of the Kennedy name, his status as a senator and his fathers team of experts to create, and subsequently manipulate, the narrative to suit his benefit. To his credit, Clarke plays Ted as a lost soul in need of guidance, and in doing so elicits sympathy at a time when what hes doing (distorting the truth, and perhaps his responsibility for, an innocent womans death) is really quite evil. Theres a fascination with the Kennedy family that pop culture cant seem to escape. Theyve been called the closest thing to royalty the United States has ever had. The tragedy that has befallen the family is, arguably, equal to the scandal and melodrama that have also impacted its legacy. This wasnt just a rich and powerful family; its also three generations of high profile headlines for the media. Chappaquiddick tells only one such tale, but heres hoping it will lead to more of the same. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Teds sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver founded the Special Olympics in 1968.Did you know?

After damage in a hurricane in 1926, Vizcaya was restored and eventually conveyed to Dade County along with the extensive art collection it housed. Still today, it contains one of the most significant collections of Italian furniture in the United States.

Its a word from the wine world, and like most of them, its French. And like most French words, it means more than just the limited definition of earth, land or dirt. In wine-speak, terroir refers to the specific place where the grapes are grown. But, as mentioned above, its much more than that. In the widest sense, it means everything about that specific place: the soil, elevation, drainage, the direction the vineyard faces, how the fog from the ocean keeps the grapes cool in the morning and what time it burns off. And in a way, even the winemaking traditions of the particular area. In many regions, the soil is very sitespecific. My vineyard may have a vein of limestone running beneath it, which imparts certain qualities to the grapes grown there. My neighbors vineyard, just a few feet on the other side of the cart path, doesnt have any limestone. Thats why I get $5,000 a ton for my grapes, and he has to sell his for only $2,000. The concept of terroir varies in importance and significance depending on the country and region. In France, Spain, Italy and Germany, its critical. Grapes grown in a certain region, vineyard and even a particular part of a vineyard are carefully and precisely classified. In fact, wine is the very first product in history to establish and promote geographic indications. We dont do it with broccoli or asparagus. In Florida, we do it with oranges. But theres some indication that the idea of giving winegrowing regions specific geographical indications is more a marketing ploy than a designation of quality. According to a recent article in Forbes magazine, this whole idea of a link between location and quality is a big sticking point in international trade disputes. The question is, should we, as wine lovers, care about this? Yes, we should. As far back as 1756, in Portugal, wealthy vineyard owners lobbied for special designations of quality for their own properties, of course. From this, regulations were established about which grapes could be grown where and how the wine must be made. Today, its much more complex than that. In Europe, and especially in France, there are government ministries, like wine police, that decree which vineyards are in the St. Julien appellation, for example, and why the vineyards 100 feet away across the cart path arent. And these decrees are strictly enforced. In the U.S., the delineation of American Viticultural Areas is controlled by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. This gives me the giggles every time I think about it. Nevertheless, knowing where your wine comes from can be important. Certain grapes grow best in certain areas, and it makes a difference (especially in the price) whether your Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Napa or Noplace. Its the climate, the fog off the river or ocean, the kind of yeast that grows on the grapes its everything. Here are some new favorites. Guigal Ctes du Rhne Blanc 2015 ($10) The Guigal family doesnt make every single wine in the northern Rhone, it just seems like it. This value-priced white is the traditional blend of Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne. Hugely aromatic, with flavors of pear, flowers and a pronounced note of minerality. The floral notes are a bit on the sweet side, but quite pleasant. Great value. WW 88. Guigal Ctes du Rhne Red 2013 ($9) Very true to type, this traditional blend of Grenache and Syrah (and perhaps a few others) give you a light-bodied treat of black cherry, blueberry and leather with a medium finish. A good selection for weekday enjoyment. WW 89.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Ive heard that a coffee filter can remove sulfites from wine. Is that true? Steve N., New YorkA: Sorry, no. Sulfites occur naturally as a byproduct of fermentation, so youll find them in all wines. Winemakers often add more sulfites as a preservative, and in fact only about 1 percent of the population is actually allergic to them. More people experience headaches or other discomfort from histamines in wine, and of course from the alcohol. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

Please call for pricing.Super Saver Lunch Specials $10 $10 $10 CUISINEReap the charms of al fresco dining at Garden Caf Manys the time Ive turned south onto Old 41 Road where it veers off from new U.S. 41 in Bonita Springs and glanced over at the Bernwood Centre on the right, where a curtain of potted plants shields the umbrella-shaded tables of The Garden Caf. One of these days Im going to try that place, Ive told myself year after year. That day finally arrived, sunny but cool, perfect for dining al fresco, one of the coveted pleasures of living in Florida. Not that patrons have a choice at Garden Caf all of the dozen or so tables sit outside on the cafs paver-lined patio. Indoors is a warren of catering equipment and supplies the owners have 30 years of experience in the business where they might squeeze in a few tables during inclement weather. We seated ourselves under a red umbrella and immediately noticed that the sounds of traffic faded into the background, thanks to that buffer of greenery. Then we noticed that the breakfast and lunch menus differ significantly from those posted on the restaurants pretty basic website. Updating the online information with new dishes and better pictures would be a smart marketing m ove, but I got the feeling over the course of our meal that the folks behind Garden Caf have better things to do with their time and budget. Such as sourcing the finest ingredients, perfecting new iterations of breakfast and lunch classics and generating an ambience of gracious hospitality. Cant argue with those priorities. Mugs of steaming water and a selection of Tazo teas ($1.95 each) with a cute mini mason jar of honey arrived quickly, as we wrestled with the difficult choice of ordering breakfast or lunch. The former entails enticing prospects such as eggs benedict with pork belly or fried chicken, b uttermilk biscuits with gravy, eggs in purgatory or Dr. Seusss green eggs and ham featuring a hollandaise sauce verdantly tinted by spinach and fresh herbs. Lighter fare includes a smoked salmon frittata, anyway you like it omelets and a fresh berry parfait. If you opt for lunch instead, selections include homemade soup of the day and salads ala chicken with caramelized pears and Grand Marnier-glazed salmon over greens. Craft sandwiches are on trend: short-rib sliders garnished with cherry compote or shrimp po boy sliders with pineapple slaw; mahi tacos with jicama-mango slaw. Sides include pesto truffle fries and crispy potato tots.We noticed quite a few plates of fried chicken with waffles ($13.50) coming out, so we took that as a hint. Ive never really understood the popularity of this combination, but Im beginning to appreciate it. Boneless planks of buttermilk chicken breast sat atop crisp triangles of golden Belgian waffle, all of it glazed with a delicious bourbon caramel sauce and crumbled bacon. The booze and the salty bacon helped mitigate the sweetness of the sauce, and the chicken was lightly battered and moist within. My pepper-sensitive dining companion appreciated the fact that it was mildly seasoned, too. She chose fresh fruit as her side and was served a good plate of ripe melons and berries.From the salad section, we shared the crab-avocado martini ($11), a sumptuous cocktail of sweet blue crabmeat, creamy avocados and diced tomatoes dressed with fresh lemon juice and diced scallions. The simplicity of the combination allowed the quality of the ingredients to shine, and they really dont skimp on the crab, either and its the pricey jumbo lump grade. We remarked on it to the chef when he stopped by our table, and he said that its picked and prepared fresh as its ordered. For some of the creamiest grits youll ever spoon into your mouth, try the Cajun shrimp and grits ($12.50 full order, $9 half). The corn porridge is enriched with cheddar cheese and gets a mild kick from poblano chilies. About a halfdozen jumbo shrimp were tossed with bits of Andouille sausage, bell peppers and onions, all of it enveloped in a highly seasoned Cajun gravy. For my side, I upgraded ($1) from hash browns to chorizo-Gouda hash, which was simply hash browns with bits of sausage and a slice of cheese on top that didnt melt; it would have been better if they had run it under the broiler long enough to liquefy the cheese and crisp the potatoes, but this is a minor quibble and the only one we had about Garden Caf. We never got around to inquiring about desserts, but check the chalkboard menu that features daily smoothie flavors and other specials. And make a point to discover this notso-secret garden now before the daily rains and sweltering temperatures of summer tarnish the charms of dining outdoors. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Garden Caf has about a dozen tables under umbrellas.
