Nor was he off-put by the hard reality of kids either abused, neglected or abandoned by their parents and of what that could mean in the mind of a child. Ad litem means for the suit, so Mr. Shotwell joined the Guardian ad Litem program in Floridas 20th Circuit on the southwest coast to represent the best interests of children in court, as the court decides their fate. To reunite them with biological parents who can demonstrate a reinvigorated capacity to raise their children properly is always Option 1, but not always possible. Placing them with relatives, in orphanages or in foster homes where their real parents might or might not be allowed to see them is Option 2.

Changement climatique (French). Cambio Climatito (Spanish). Il cambiamento climatico (Italian). Qhu binhu (Chinese). But how do you say it in English as spoken by the official representatives of the nations third largest state, with 20 million residents and more than 6 percent of the United States population? Like this (repeat after me): CLIMATE CHANGE! As everybody now knows, back in 2013 or so, Gov. Rick Scott forbid his minions in state government, especially in the Department of Environmental Protection, to use the term climate change (and he threw in the term global warming for good measure). Then he denied that he had suggested any such thing when his reality check was discovered a couple of weeks ago. I think its important to pause here and note that the governor did not ask state officials to quit using the word round when describing the planet earth. Let me point out one other fact in his favor, as well: Gov. Scott did not tell his people they couldnt use klimawandel (German) or mudana climtica (Portuguese) or a handful of other exoticinvasive terms, which is why Im expecting them to turn up in a host of email exchanges between the governor and his staff someday soon unless hes figured out how to hide those emails, like he did others in the past. And I would hope in a less clumsy fashion than Hillary hid hers. One wonders what this means for Floridians, and I cant tell you. But I can tell you that I find the governors vocabulary restrictions sort of cute. The man is trying to help us, after all trying to make us feel better about the world and God knows somebody needs to. Besides, Im fairly fed up with the term, just like the governor. Climate change, climate change, climate change, bleh! Who really cares, anyway? Look at it through the governors eyes: Worrying about climate change is like worrying about night, or mortality, or ice cream melting in the sun. Sure, itll happen, so why talk about it? You gotta lick that cone while the lickins good and worry about the melt later. Thats been the governors attitude, an ice cream attitude, about nearly everything. Even the word climate itself bothers me, just as it probably bothers him. Its a heavily overused word that should be dropped from contemporary English like a dead rat. The thing dates back to the Middle Ages, if not farther back than that, for Gods sake. So its just too old. Climate (n.) Late 14c., horizontal zone of the earth, Scottish, from Old French, climat, region, zone of the earth, from Latin clima (genitive climatis), region, slope of the earth, from Greek klima, region, zone, literally an inclination, slope, thus, slope of the earth from equator to pole, from root of klinein, to slope, to lean.You see? The word climate didnt even start to mean weather until about 1600, according to etymologists that was back when Willy-boy Shakespeare was commenting on the weather, too, and Elizabeth I was queen of England, where they spoke plain English, Im told, just like they still do in Florida. Unless theyre told not to speak plain English in Florida by the governor. For never-resting time leads summer on/ to hideous winter and confounds him there, the bard wrote in Sonnet 5. I assume Willy-boy wasnt referring to his queen, because she wasnt confounded by anything, including time or hideous winter. Though the sex to which I belong is considered weak, she said, you will nevertheless find me a rock that bends to no wind. Floridians can understand Shakespeare, all right: hideous winter. Some of them are here where the ice cream is melting because of hideous winter. And they can understand a rock like Gov. Scott, too, a leader who bends to no wind, especially the wind of science, knowledge and demonstrative reality. Science, knowledge and reality are not going to change our governor, or any of his fellow Republicans who insist they will not bend to the now compelling evidence at hand: that CLIMATE CHANGE! is real and the ice cream is melting. Frankly, I think the governor understands the majority of the citizens he represents in Florida better than any politician in recent years. We actually like CLIMATE CHANGE! down here. We want CLIMATE CHANGE! In a lot of cases, thats why we showed up in the first place: for a change of climate. Cant these liberals and whiners who are always complaining about CLIMATE CHANGE! get that? Thats why we bought waterfront houses and built golf courses and fought our way past county plans that restrict development to create more gated communities and more shopping malls and more growth we like CLIMATE CHANGE! We like it when the weather gets hotter and sunnier and brighter. And if I may speak frankly on our behalf, we dont really care if South Beach disappears under the waves, or if most of the coastal regions of Pinellas County vanish into Tampa Bay, or if we lose North Captiva or southern Marco by the middle or second half of the century. Most of us dont live in those fancy coastal communities, anyway, and most of us wont be around when it happens. So who cares? CLIMATE CHANGE!, Jack. If you dont say it, you cant see it. And if you cant see it, you wont face it. Thats how we do things in the Sunshine State. roger This column first appeared in March 2015.

No matter the intent of the founders, we have evolved into a pay-to-play oligarchy, where money rules. I have to say, I appreciate it when someone is so honest about his or her own dishonesty. Rarely, however, is someone so candid as Mick Mulvaney. He now heads the Trump administrations Office of Management and Budget, and even more damagingly, has been appointed by the president, on an interim basis, to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The CFPB was formed out of the rubble of the economic debacle in 2008 to, as the name suggests, protect the consumer, particularly against the excesses and outright thievery of the financial industry. Over consistent Republican objections, the agency issued regulations that would offer some federal protections against these behemoths whose executives ran the monetary system into the ground with their greed. Until Trump. Donald Trump came into office demonizing regulation, and he certainly has lived up to his campaign rhetoric by gutting the rules that were set out to create a greed shield. Mulvaney is a willing executioner. He had already established a harsh record as a South Carolina GOP congressman, a tea party favorite for his limited-government extremism except when it came to protecting the rich, particularly those who threw crumbs of their illgotten gains at politicians like him. Now in his new role, there he was, speaking to a group of bankers (what else?) when he took his amazing detour into remarkable candor: Speaking of his days as a congressman, he said that, when it came to scheduling meetings: If youre a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didnt talk to you. If youre a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you. Theres no might about it, actually. Like just about every American politician who wishes to get elected and re-elected, a huge amount of time is spent fundraising which is to say groveling for campaign contributions, which is another way to describe legalized bribes. This corruption saturates our political system. It is bipartisan; Democrats are as guilty of selling their souls as Republicans. Its just that the Trumpsters are more blatant about it. Scott Pruitt is the latest one to wallow in the self-created muck. His public life has been lavishly subsidized by energy companies that dont want to be bothered by government limitations. In Pruitts native Oklahoma, where he was a state senator and later attorney general, he had a reputation of opposition to anything his private-industry benefactors disliked. Naturally Donald Trump picked him to head the Environmental Protection Agency, where after being barely confirmed by the U.S. Senate, he has been hellbent on gutting rules long established to protect the planet from corporate profiteering. He also has been hellbent on living a cushy life in Washington, financed by these same fat cats (think of his lowcost condo accommodations) and more egregiously, the taxpayers (think of prohibited first-class airfare, etc.). Again, Pruitt and the other Trumpsters conduct is not unique and certainly not limited to Republicans. The Clintons have faced similar accusations. It was Will Rogers who described Congress as the best that money can buy. Regrettably, that stain covers our entire political system. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Trumps Nobel can waitWho would have guessed that a Trump crowd 15 months into his presidency would be chanting, Nobel! Nobel! Nobel! As in Alfred Nobel, the Swedish inventor and philanthropist who created the prizes, including one for peace. The prize was on the minds of Trump fans thanks to developments on the Korean peninsula, where Kim Jong Un has stopped testing missiles and started love-bombing the South. Donald Trump has a typically modulated view of how much he had to do with this. Everything, he told his Michigan rally. If thats too boastful, the president deserves credit for breaking with Barack Obamas policy of strategic patience that effectively meant accepting North Koreas march toward a nuclear-tipped ICBM. Trump tightened up on a sanctions regime. And he undertook a Trumpian pressure campaign consisting of insults, fiery rhetoric, extreme ambiguity about his true intentions and braggadocio about the size of his nuclear button. If many in the United States were freaked out, it stands to reason that Kim took notice. This is all to the good, but nothing we have seen so far from Kim is inconsistent with the decades-long North Korean diplomatic pattern of selling us the same fake concessions in exchange for sanctions relief and economic benefits. Inspiring talk with the South Koreans about a breakthrough to a new era of peace? To paraphrase Barack Obamas famous put-down of Mitt Romney, 1992, 2000 and 2007 all want their foreign policies back. High-flying joint declarations in each of those years proved meaningless. Mothballing nuclear facilities as a sign of good faith? Kim is inviting the press to witness the sh uttering of a tunnel complex used to test nuclear weapons. His father destroyed a cooling tower in front of the international media in 2008. Promises to the U.S. to disarm? Pyongyang said it was ending its illicit plutonium program in the 1994 Agreed Framework. It said it was giving up all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs in 2005 as part of the so-called Six-Party Talks. It said in 2007 that it was agreeing to specific steps to follow through on its 2005 commitment. All came to naught. This is why the ultimate test of Trumps mettle isnt getting Kim to the negotiating table, but being willing to walk away from it. Hed do well to familiarize himself with Ronald Reagans high-wire summit with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev at Reykjavik in 1986. They audaciously discussed eliminating all nuclear weapons, before the Soviets demanded an end to the SDI missile-defense program. Reagan walked away. The summit was considered a failure, but Reagan had convinced the Soviets that we werent going to give up our technological advantage over them. Trump should conceive of his meeting with Kim as a continuation of his campaign of coercive diplomacy. Should it (in all likelihood) fail to elicit a credible decision by the North to give up its nukes, it should be the pivot toward an even harsher clampdown on the North. None of the great and good are going to shower Trump with accolades for being clear-eyed and tough-minded, but thats what his negotiations with Kim require. The Nobel can wait.

Screenings at 1 and 3:30 p.m. daily through Sunday, May 13, are included in the regular cost of admission. Victory in Europe Day took place on May 8, 1945. David Nelson, education assistant at the museum and education center, created the short film from newsreel footage of the period. It provides an overview of the major events of World War II, from the Declaration of War by Neville Chamberlain on Sept. 3, 1939, through to the celebration of Victory over Japan Day in the U.S. on Sept. 2, 1945. Mr. Nelson captioned the footage and set it to a specially edited soundtrack featuring Saint-Saens Symphony No. 3 (organ). The film has had just two previous screenings: at a 60th anniversary VE Day celebration in Birmingham, England, and at a special group tour at the Holocaust Museum & Education Center last year. In addition to the short film and the museums permanent collection of more than 1,000 original photographs and artifacts related to the Holocaust and WWII, visitors can see Resettling and Rebuilding: The Displaced Persons in Post-War Europe. When World War II ended, millions of refugees were on the move, ha ving had their homes destroyed in the fighting, or having fled their homes in war-torn territories. The end of the war also brought the liberation of concentration camps and ghettos where Jews and others considered as undesirable by the Nazis had been sent; now they, too, needed places to live. Since the lack of housing made governing enormous transient populations difficult, the Allies created Displaced Persons camps to address the issue in their Occupation Zones. Resettling and Rebuilding also looks at the various governmental and charitable organizations that helped administer and supply the DP camps. It took Europe a long time to recover from the physical damage caused World War II. Some people remained in DP camps for years after the war ended. The exhibit remain up through May 27. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center at 4760 Tamiami Trail N. is open from 1-4 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. Docentled tours are offered at 1 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for ages 12-18 and free ages 11 and under with parent/guardian approval.

Pr o m o Ra te with with minimum minimum 11M O NTH C D Help Stamp Out Hunger before leaving for summer SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Saturday, postal workers in Collier County will deliver something other than mail as they go along their routes: hope, in the form of food. Saturday, May 12, marks the National Association of Letter Carriers 26th annual Stamp Out Hunger, the nations largest single-day food drive, when postal customers are asked to leave donations of non-perishable pantry items for their carriers to pick up. Collier food donations are delivered to Collier Harvest Foundation, which has partnered with the NALC since the food drive began. The drive occurs just as Southwest Floridas seasonal residents leave; its success is critical to the efforts of feeding those less fortunate in the area throughout the summer. Collier County Public Schools reports serving, on average, 21,369 free or reduced meals a day. Many locals also see reduced work hours in industries that provide seasonal services, further straining already stretched budgets. Stamp Out Hunger donations are sorted, boxed and stored at the Collier Harvest warehouse for distribution to dozens of local agencies, such as Providence House, Youth Haven, Collier Senior Resources, NAMI and other nonprofit organizations and churches. The goal is to collect enough food to see these agencies through the summer, as well as have enough food to aid in the event of a hurricane or other disaster. Letter carriers last year collected 263,000 pounds of food donated by their customers. Stamp Out Hunger is a community-wide event in which resident can participate on many levels: Seasonal residents who are leaving before the May 12 collection day can take unopened, non-perishable items to the closest postal branch or give them to their mail carrier. Businesses, schools and other organizations can collect food ahead of the drive. On Saturday, volunteers are needed to help unload, sort and box food at the warehouse. Volunteers are asked to commit to two-hour shifts. To sign up to volunteer or for information about other opportunities at Collier Harvest, call 455-3663 or visit Postal customers can leave unopened, nonperishable food items at their mailboxes for pickup on Saturday May 12. Those who will head north before that day can deliver items to their closest post office during business hours.


A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthe first six months of 2017, according to the latest interim report from the Florida Medical Examiners Commission. Thats a 27 percent increase from the year before. A snapshot of the epidemic shows: In the first six months of 2017, the number of Florida deaths caused by synthetic forms of fentanyl increased 479 percent compared to the same time in 2016, the medical examiners commission reported. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, which provides EMS services to a population of more than 900,000 in a county recognized nationally as an epicenter of the epidemic, reports that spending on Narcan increased from $17,341 in 2012 to $307,648 so far in 2018. In 2014, Collier County EMS administered 104 doses of Narcan, the same number administered in the first four months of 2018. Last year, Collier EMS administered 617 doses. At four Lee County hospitals operated by Lee Health, the number of opioid overdoses rose from 171 in 2013 to 955 in 2017, a 458 percent increase. Lee Health reports there have already been 440 overdoses and five deaths in the first six months of fiscal year 2018 (October through March). A lack of follow up care has led to a revolving door at places like SalusCares detox facility in Lee County, an epicenter of the epidemic in Southwest Florida, with the same patients often coming back again and again. The regional alcohol and drug rehab treatment centers budget included 4.4 million in funding from Lee County for 2017-18. So you take them off the street and put them in detox for seven to 10 days and send them right back out to the street, what are they supposed to do? said Kari-Anne Spiller, who holds weekly group meetings at the detox facility and is founder and director of The Surrender House Recovery Residence, a FARR-certified facility in Cape Coral and Fort Myers. We see so much need in the community for continual care after detox. Specialists point to too little funding for medication-assisted treatment (MAT) which is defined as a combination of behavioral therapy and medication and other resources, for many addicts who do want to get help. People also face the stigma of addiction, a chronic illness often seen as a moral failing when in fact as with heart disease or diabetes patients bear personal responsibility for managing it, but are also affected in ways beyond their control, experts say. And many people who suffer from addiction are not ready or willing to get help. Eileen Kappenman, who is in recovery, now three years clean, manages Surrender House residences and works at SalusCares detox. There are so many people out there who want to be clean, but it has such a pull on them, such a strong hold on them that they cant. And they tell you until theyre blue in the face, she said. I can tell theyre telling the truth because Ive been there, but they just cannot get (clean) There are not enough resources for help. Theyre not in detox long enough, in my opinion. Todd Cordisco, a SalusCare spokesperson, said in an email that additional funding is needed. SalusCare recently applied for a federal grant to help with follow-up care that includes Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT), MAT and other services. It does use MAT for some patients, treating them with the drug naltrexone. The agency plans to expand in the coming months by using buprenorphine as well. Effective substance disorder treatment requires the availability of a complete continuum of care, so use of detox alone can be a revolving door, Mr. Cordisco wrote. And the 20 beds at SalusCares 28-day residential drug and alcohol rehab facility in Fort Myers are not meeting the demand for people who want to get help. We have people who are waiting to come in, just waiting for bed availability, said Steven Hill, director of residential programs. Across SalusCares recovery residences, which includes a facility for adolescents and an adult halfway house, an estimated 55 to 70 percent of the people there on any given day meet the criteria for severe Opioid Use Disorder, Mr. Hill said. I think the community as a whole needs to really educate people on understanding that addiction is really a chronic relapsing brain disease, he said. Right now the community need is just kind of continually going up and were seeing more and more getting thrown at us with the types of addiction that are going around, the intensity of the overdoses. Its really a mess. The overdoses and deaths have farreaching implications for mental health and substance abuse as well. Valeries House, a Southwest Florida nonprofit that helps grieving children and families work through the loss of a loved one, formed a new support group for those who have suffered a loss due to OPIOIDSFrom page 1An Opioid Family Grief Support Group is running for 12 sessions, every other Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. at Valeries House at 1762 Fowler Street in Fort Myers. Guest speakers will represent the Lee County Sheriffs Office and those in the addiction treatment field. Valeries House is a nonprofit that helps grieving children and families work through the loss of a loved one It began on April 29. Emails and calls from people interested in joining have continued to come in. A licensed therapist will be on hand for each meeting. At the first one, there were seven children who came from Lee and Collier counties, including two 4-year-olds. Both lost their mothers to drug overdose. One came with grandparents, and the other with dad. Older children ages 10, 11 and 12 split into a separate group. Executive Director Angela Melvin said the older kids especially had a lot of questions and concerns. Nothing was off the table. Some were angry at the person who gave their parents the drugs or used with them. They recognized that their loved ones had personal responsibility but that they also may have been sick in some way. They talked about lying and covering things up, secrets, and guilt. The adults had their own concerns as well. The number one fear that they have is that their children will follow in the footsteps, because the statistics are so high for that, Ms. Melvin said. Jeff Lampila, 33, attended the group with his 4-year-old daughter and 8-yearold son. They lost wife and mom Ansley, a Lee County elementary school teacher, to a drug overdose in 2015. She had struggled with an addiction to prescription pills for years. After surgery following a car accident she was prescribed opioid and other pain medication and later turned to illegal drugs. Mr. Lampila said after the group meeting his son said, Theyre all like me. And I said, everyone there has lost someone to some kind of substance, so thats one of the things we talked about on the way home.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 NEWS A9the opioid epidemic. Its open to anyone in the community who is raising a child after the loss of a loved one due to drug abuse. Last October, executive director Angela Melvin started to see a trend in one or two families each week coming to them because a loved one had died of an opioid overdose. The children, they are the silent victims, she said. They are the ones who are growing up without a parent or possibly a sibling and the impact that has on their life going forward is tremendous. Opioids are a class of drugs that includes prescription medication such as oxycodone and illicit heroin and fentanyl. People who were once addicted to prescription opioids often turned to illicit drugs after efforts to stop the influx of pills. More recent waves of overdoses and deaths continues to be fueled by illicit fentanyl that has been used to cut a variety of street drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and counterfeit pills, making them exponentially more powerful and deadly. The revolving door at the detox facility is seen by others at the front lines of the opioid epidemic, including county Emergency Medical Services responders and ER doctors. Only about 20 percent of patients treated for an overdose at Lee Health hospitals in Lee County request help with addiction, said Dr. Aaron Wohl, an emergency physician who has studied solutions to the crisis and been on its front lines for several years. Although the epidemic requires a host of solutions, he feels one of the most acute is a lack of access to MAT, used to help wean people off opioids all together, such as methadone, buprenorphine and naltrexone. Communities, statewide and federally, thats what we need, Dr. Wohl said. That is happening, its just very slow and the trend is going to continue to be very slow as the money sort of trickles down into the communities. Because right now our communitys access to medicationassisted therapy, its just woefully inadequate. Many treatment centers have not adopted MAT. A recent appropriation of $65 million in state funding to address different aspects of the opioid epidemic, including emergency care, reducing the supply of prescription opioids and MAT, is not enough, Dr. Wohl argues. Still, the model that has been the most popular has been detoxifying the patient and then abstinence, which is completely inadequate for opioid use disorder. So the gold-standard among addiction specialists is undoubtedly access to MAT. At the federal level, $6 billion was appropriated in February to fight the opioid epidemic, a small amount compared to the more than $124.6 billion allocated to fight HIV/AIDS in the U.S. from 2013-2017. For fiscal year 2018, the federal government has requested another $26.6 billion to fight HIV/AIDS. We need to throw so much money at this as a nation, Dr. Wohl said. We did it for HIV and we havent even gotten close to that kind of spending concerning the opioid epidemic and I believe thats because of the stigma that still surrounds addiction and mental health. In February, The New York Times asked 30 experts in the United States to imagine they had $100 billion to spend on the opioid crisis, less than domestic spending on HIV/AIDS over the last five years. Out of four main categories aimed at stopping the epidemic treatment, harm reduction, supply and demand the panel allocated the most money for medication-assisted treatment. They also allocated money for harm reduction strategies such as syringe exchange programs (only one is currently being used in Florida, in Miami) and the use of the Narcan. Since July 2016, Narcan has been available to the public through CVS pharmacies. Narcan is the brand name of naloxone HCl nasal spray. Its the first and only FDA-approved nasal form of naloxone for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose, according to the maker. The spray counteracts the life-threatening effects of opioid overdose. The U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams issued a statement this year encouraging more Americans to carry naloxone: For patients currently taking high doses of opioids as prescribed for pain, individuals misusing prescription opioids, individuals using illicit opioids such as heroin or fentanyl, health care practitioners, family and friends of people who have an opioid use disorder, and community members who come into contact with people at risk for opioid overdose, knowing how to use naloxone and keeping it within reach can save a life. First responders armed with Narcan are saving lives but not preventing people from using, and the increase in emergency care is increasingly expensive. Lee Countys Emergency Medical Services responds to hundreds of calls each year in which naloxone is administered. Some Lee County Sheriffs Office deputies also carry it, a county spokesperson said. A county spokeswoman said Lee EMS does not talk to the media about opioids. A Sheriffs Office spokesman said the office declined to discuss it as well. Lee County Commissioner Cecil Pendergrass said, We need to provide more services afterwards, we need to provide rehabilitation and maybe even housing. A lot of these people get into a position in life where they dont have anywhere to go afterwards... Yes, if (naloxone) is saving a life its priceless, were going to continue doing it, its worth it. The problem is were having the same patients over and over again. After EMS technicians give a patient a dose or more of Narcan, they often receive more at a hospital emergency room because the increasing strength of various types of fentanyl which can be 100 times more potent than morphine is overriding the antidote. Like before we would give Narcan and somebody would come right out of the high and kind of come up fighting, said Tabatha Butcher, Collier County EMS chief. Now theyre not responsive at all or it takes another dose just to kind of barely arouse them. For patients, suddenly coming off their opioid high from naloxone can be an awful feeling that leads some to be aggressive or even violent. When the patient is revived, about 70 percent of them can become a little bit aggressive and frustrated and theyre profoundly embarrassed and a bit incredulous and they oftentimes want to leave immediately, Dr. Wohl said. ER staff tries to keep them there when possible to monitor them because they are often on multiple drugs, not just opioids, and the effect of the naloxone could wear off after about an hour while the narcotic drug still in their system lasts longer. Lee Health is beginning to look at trying to link patients identified in the ER with opioid use disorder with recovery specialists and provide services such as a call back the day after to see if they made an appointment.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY selves cast adrift in a sometimes-hostile universe. There are now 1,298 such children under court supervision and assigned to the Guardian ad Litem program in the 20th Circuit. But because there are not more volunteers like Mr. Shotwell, less than 60 percent actually have a Guardian. The 20th Circuit has 518 Guardians, so far. If you have a little time on your hands and you want to do some real good in the world before its too late, consider joining them, suggests Mr. Shotwell. He just turned 69 but swears, I dont look a day over 70. The only purpose we have, he says, is to decide and then recommend to a judge what is best for the child. Only that child. Not what is best for parents, or the lawyers, or anybody else. The 20th Circuit Court includes five counties: Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry, where the number of children under court care and in need sometimes desperate need of a guardian has risen in each of the last several years, but the number of volunteers has not. In Collier County, about 90 percent of kids who need guardians can get them, but that figure drops to roughly 50 percent in the other counties. Mr. Shotwell, who retired from a career with FP&L, did the training, accompanied a veteran of the all-volunteer program for a time a mentor and jumped in. Not only with both feet, but with the blessing of his wife, Katie, too. Hes been at it for three years, and I believe I can see Gods hand moving me to where I am now, he says. Brandi Chapman feels the same way, having been surprised by the extraordinary need and her self-assumed responsibility in the face of it. A member of the Florida branch of Kappa Alpha Theta, a sorority she joined during her college years in Missouri, she explains, she found the Guardian ad Litem program by attending a sorority event where a GAL official came and spoke. The GAL program, which occurs under different names out-of-state, had been the focus of the sororitys philanthropic work for 25 years, both in and out of Florida. It touched my heart. I needed to pick something to give back, and this was it. Now two years into her volunteer service as a guardian, Ms. Chapman has three cases, one of them with three kids, all with special needs. By talking briefly about it with a reporter she offers a glimpse of how important the need for guardians can sometimes be. All three of my cases look like they will go to adoption. My youngest case, shes four months old, and the oldest is 6 years old. The 6-year-old has some brain trauma. But the care shes received and the love and support shes received from her amazing foster parents is inspiring. So many of these children come from drug-dependent parents. They have not been cared for, they have not been fed proper food. All of my three kids (on this one case) had to have almost all their teeth pulled. The 3and 6-year-old both had to have dental surgery because of severe decay. You cant even imagine a child going into a two-hour surgery, and bone grafts and all this work done on the inside of this little bitty mouth. These things are out of the realm of our imagining. And when you see it, you wonder,personally: What would these kids ever do without a guardian ad litem? And one more thing, Ms. Chapman says: I knew I would care when I got into this. But I care a lot more than I thought I would. They call that, love. Ms. Chapman was never able to have children of her own shes spent a career singing with orchestras around the world and in 2016 she decided to travel less, feeling both blessed in life and interested in the greater community good. Mr. Shotwell, as it turns out, is the Good Samaritan, at the least. These little people and young teenagers they need somebody to look out for them. Its more moving and more rewarding than you would ever guess, he says, beginning his own story. After retiring from FP&L he went to work for a consulting company that tried to help the states massively overworked Department of Children and Families improve its methods and processes. So he knew where the children came from and how they are named to the Guardian program. Then he became a guardian and met Joshua, a young teenager who case he accepted (guardians are offered cases and get to choose to take them, or not). He was a really good kid and I kind of felt he was getting jacked around in the system. So, Id come home to my wife, Katy, and complain about how I couldnt get him in a shelter, and one day she just said, Why dont we bring him here? Now Joshua is my foster son, hes been here two years, and hes a sophomore at Naples High School. Hes doing well, says Mr. Shotwell, who has children and grandchildren of his own. Usually it doesnt happen like that, nor is such an outcome ev er expected of volunteers. But they seem to get more out of it than the children sometimes. The Guardian program is explained in full at; you can also call 533-1435 for more information. Training for volunteers includes two days of classes, a webinar, and work with a mentor for three weeks, officials explain. Volunteers must see their cases, the children, at least once a month many do it more frequently, taking young ones to movies or restaurants, sometimes getting them items they need such as clothing or books, in part with help from the Guardian ad Litem Foundation, a nonprofit organization established to raise money and provide support for the programs in each circuit in the state. And guardians get to know the children, the parents and the family situation before they make recommendations to a judge. The need for volunteers now is intense, said Holly Rodriguez, program director. Unfortunately, the number of children appointed to Guardian ad Litem has grown and across the circuit only about 57 percent have actually been assigned a guardian there arent enough volunteers. Roxanne Dyer, the director of the Guardian ad Litem Foundation, puts it this way: Why join as a guardian? This specific type of volunteering is not a simple or easy type. It requires a specific commitment and the ability not only to have an open heart and mind but apply logic and make hard decisions, as it relates to what is best. You ask a child what they want, they want to go home, no matter what the circumstances, even if theyre abusive or unhealthy. Those are viewed as express wishes, as opposed to best interests. Volunteers work only in the best interests of these children. They create meaningful, powerful impacts, not only in a childs life, but in what that does for the community as a whole. Its transformational. GUARDIANSFrom page 1CHAPMAN COURTESY PHOTOKatie and Chip Shotwell, a Guardian ad litem, flank 16-year-old Josh, now their foster child and a student at Naples High School.

SEAGATESUITES.COM (239)774-7300 LUXURY HOME BUILDING AND REMODEL SERVICESCOVELLIDEVELOPMENT.COM (239)774-7300 Unrivaled Style and Elegance GUEST COMMENTARYRed tide rising BY DAVE TRECKERWhen visitors come to Florida, the first thing most want to do is go to the beach. We had some guests recently, and they were no exception. So we packed up the requisite towels, sunblock, sand toys for the kids and reading material for the adults and set off. But we didnt stay long. The red tide was debilitating. Some sneezed. Others got watery eyes. Some had itchy skin. Everybody coughed. So after toughing it out for an hour or so, we picked our way between the dead fish and left. We werent alone in the exodus. Expecting a fun time at the beach in Florida? Not when theres red tide around.What is red tide? Its a toxic algal bloom thats naturally occurring, but fed and spread by nutrients, primarily nitrates and phosphates from fertilizer runoff. However, humans arent entirely to blame. Natural forces play a role; temperature (its worse in hot weather), the tide and winds that spread the toxic spores.The guilty algae is called Karenia brivis, and its especially prevalent in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. It thrives in brackish water bays and harbors and in offshore waters near passes and inlets. It can cover vast areas. The current red tide stretches from Manatee County all the way down to Collier. While troublesome to humans, particularly those with respiratory problems, red tide is devastating to marine life, killing fish in huge numbers along with turtles and water birds. We see the effects via jacked-up prices at the supermarket. Commercial fishermen are forced to go farther offshore to find clean catches, and shellfish suppliers are harvesting fewer and fewer uncontaminated beds. Then theres the impact on tourism as word gets out that you cant go to the beach in Southwest Florida. The sad fact is were bringing this on ourselves. Red tide is but one form of algal bloom were spreading by misusing fertilizer, over-irrigating and turning a blind eye to farms and ranches that dump polluted water into our lakes and streams. And the pollution runs downhill into the Gulf of Mexico. A report card by the Conservancy of Southwest Florida showed the extent of damage. Nearly all of our watersheds are contaminated to some extent, the worst being the Caloosahatchee River fouled by discharges from Lake Okeechobee and Naples Bay, a cesspool of waste from canals to the west. Nutrient pollution is not just a Florida problem. The entire western end of Lake Erie is choked with algal blooms, fed by years of unchecked fertilizer runoff. Even worse is a vast portion of the Gulf of Mexico, which has become the largest marine dead zone in the world. Adding to the bad news is a finding that the nutrients dont go away. Chemical & Engineering News quotes scientists, Over the years, a body of water accrues a vast store of phosphorus, nitrogen and carbon that can recycle from sediment to algal blooms and back again. Algae is bound in sediments at the bottom of waterways sediments that release the stored nutrients in the spring, driving yet another years algal blooms. (We recently measured phosphorus releases from lake sediments in Pelican Bay.) And there are other problems. Irrigation feeds the algae. Because cleanup of reclaimed water leaves behind huge amounts of nutrients, irrigation runoff can foul waterways as badly as fertilizer itself. The outlook is grim, and its not getting any better. Can anything be done about it? Yes. To start with, officials can enforce the rules already out there. For example, SB 2080, passed by the Florida legislature in 2009, restricts fertilizer use by mandating best landscaping practices. Collier County has a similar ordinance (2011-24). Communities can do a great deal on their own. All neighborhoods can and should follow best management practices for fertilization and irrigation. The common sense guidelines can be accessed at http:/ Perhaps most importantly, Tallahassee should tighten water standards for nutrients; put the onus on the big polluters. The Department of Environmental Protection could do that immediately and at little cost. Impose statewide numerical limits, tough specs for soluble nitrogen and phosphorus that apply to all of our waterways and enforce the standards, particularly in the sugar cane fields, phosphate mines, vegetable farms and other areas where the worst pollution occurs. Nobody is crazy about more regulations, but in this case, its justified. Red tide is a powerful wake-up call.

The Walt Disney Co. sent two statues of the superhero to Busan to celebrate Marvel Studios filming along Koreas southern coast. But on March 17, according to The Korea Herald, a 32-year-old drunk man was arrested after he vandalized the statue in the Gwangbok-ro shopping district, and on April 21, the statue near Gwangalli Beach was toppled and part of its head broken off. An official from the Korea Film Council thought someone had probably tried to climb the statue, despite numerous offlimits signs.Look-alikesDolores Leis, 64, of Nanton in Galicia, Spain, is a modest wife and potato farmer. But thanks to the internet, she has found fame as Trumps Galician sister. The Associated Press reports that a journalist researching farming posted a photo of Leis at her farm on Instagram, and the striking resemblance between her and the U.S. president caught the attention of the web. I say that it must be because of the color of the hair, Leis told La Voz de Galicia on April 24. She added that shes not overwhelmed by the sudden attention because, unlike her doppelganger, she doesnt use a mobile phone and isnt much interested in online chatter. I look at everything that my daughters show me, but it never stung my curiosity to have (a phone), she said.MisguidedGreyhound Bus passengers were frustrated on April 19 after their trip to New York was delayed by mechanical trouble and navigational challenges.

About 400 personnel participated in nearly 150 hours of real-life training scenario simulations using the structures slated for demolition. The Greater Naples Fire District ignited small fires inside the structures to allow firefighters the opportunity to recognize the changing fire conditions in a controlled environment. All exercises were planned and closely controlled by certified Live Fire Instructor trainers. When given an acquired structure to train at, it is a huge blessing, said GNFD Capt. Rusty Godette, who coordinated the training efforts. Having a structure we dont have to be careful with creates a more realistic atmosphere that translates to quality training. We truly appreciate our first responders and firefighters, and with this contribution, we wanted to provide them with the ability to have reallife training situations, said Michael Greenberg, Southwest Florida regional president for Neal Communities. The company made a similar donation four years ago, he added, because we recognize how important this training is. Emergency first responders from Lee and Collier counties held field-training events for several scenarios recently with the GNFD, including firefighter search and rescue, forcible entry, hoseline operations, firefighter survival, new recruit orientation, fire investigations and SWAT and bomb operations. Participating agencies included the Collier County Sheriffs Office, Collier County Emergency Medical Services, Marco Island Fire Rescue Department, North Collier Fire Rescue District, Florida State Fire Marshal's Office, Naples Police Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Lee County Sheriffs Office and Lee County Port Authority. Marquesa Isles encompasses approximately 38 acres and is part of Neal Communities south region, which includes Collier and Lee counties. Entrance to the community is off County Barn Road. Construction is underway on the site and model homes. Upon completion, there will be 156 villa residences, an amenity building, a resort-style pool and a dog park.

SE HABLA ESPAOL FANTASTIC SAMS NAPLESADULT CUT FREE SHAMPOOHED Retired teachers make the grade at Guadalupe Center Resale Shop SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYTheir time in the classroom might have ended, but locally, a contingent of retired educators still finds a way to enhance learning for young students. Guadalupe Resale Shop in North Naples counts more than a dozen retired teachers among its corps of 70 volunteers. The former educators process donations, price items, stock shelves and work the cash registers, all to help raise money for the education-based, nonprofit Guadalupe Center in Immokalee. These ladies spent their professional careers making a difference in the lives of their students, so its only fitting that in retirement they still carry that same passion for education, said Dawn Montecalvo, pr esident of the Guadalupe Center. The resale shop is an extremely busy place, she added, and the tireless work ethic of our volunteers certainly is appreciated. Proceeds from the shop help fund the Guadalupe Centers Early Childhood Education, After-School Tutoring & Summer Enrichment and college preparatory Tutor Corps programs. For Sue Morgan of Naples, a visit to the shop as a customer introduced her to the Guadalupe Center and its mission of breaking the cycle of poverty through education for the children of Immokalee. I immediately thought it was a match, Ms. Morgan, who taught preschool in New Jersey, said. What were doing to help the Guadalupe Center is phenomenal. I kind of fell into it, and I love it.

Study shows need for keeping better score of pitches thrown in high school baseball UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA HEALTHFor high school baseball pitchers, limiting throws during a game helps to prevent fatigue and injuries. But nearly half the number of pitches ones thrown during warm-ups and in the bullpen are typically not counted, adding significantly to a pitchers risk of injury, new findings by University of Florida Health researchers show. Excessive pitching is one of the main risk factors for elbow and shoulder injuries among high school baseball players. Thats why the Florida High School Athletic Association limits 17and 18-year-old players to 105 pitches a day. After observing and counting nearly 14,000 pitches by 115 starting pitchers in North and Central Florida during the 2017 high school baseball season, the researchers found that 42.4 percent of the players throws were unaccounted for in teams pitch counts. This is how uncounted pitches add up: The typical player threw about 69 pitches during game action, the researchers found. When warm-ups and bullpen activity were counted, the mean number of pitches per game swelled to more than 119. The findings were published recently in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine. All of those extra pitches should be counted to determine the true number of pitches thrown and to possibly reduce the risk of overuse injury, said Dr. Jason Zaremski, an assistant professor of orthopedics in the UF College of Medicine and the studys lead author. The study is the first to reveal the true volume of pitches that players throw, he said. The stakes are high for pitchers. Previous research has found they suffer the majority of shoulder and elbow injuries among high school players, typically from overuse. Dr. Zaremski and his colleagues wanted to know why pitching injuries havent decreased despite pitch-count limits enacted in 2016 and better awareness of other known risk factors. The volume of pitches being thrown is much greater that what is being counted. Its not just the effect of one game. Overuse has a cumulative effect over the course of a month, a season or a career, Dr. Zaremski said. In addition to making pitchers more susceptible to injury, excessive throwing can have other effects, such as changing their pitching motion, reducing their pitch velocity or reducing their ball control, he added. The study did not make a correlation between pitch counts and injuries. Next, Dr. Zaremski plans to begin studying the forces that are put on pitchers arms based ZAREMSKI SEE PITCHERS, A17

Knowing pitchers true workloads, he said, can be a useful tool for making changes to their regimens that will help them avoid injuries. This re-emphasizes the importance of preparing your arm in the off-season and preseason for the rigors of the regular season. If you dont do that, your arm is going to break down particularly as you get older and can start throwing harder, he said. One possibility is building up pitchers more in the off-season so their arms are better prepared for the regular season. Another potential approach is having pitchers build themselves up more sl owly at the beginning of the season. Dr. Zaremski said this idea might be bolstered by data from Major League Baseball, where the lowest injury rates occur in August and September, when the season is winding down. Their bodies have become used to the season, he said. Theyve become used to the workload. For high school athletes, their coaches and parents, Dr. Zaremski stresses several things: Prepare players arms for an upcoming season with a comprehensive pitching program. Participate in a full-body, kinetic chain training program that optimizes energy transfer and efficient, effective movement. Use high-speed video or video analysis of the pitching motion. While resources can be scarce at the high school level, Dr. Zaremski said the above practices could reduce injuries that result from chronic overuse. Coaches, players and parents also need to be keenly aware of the total number of pitches on game day not just the ones during game play. Still, monitoring a players pitches is just one part of avoiding injuries, he noted. Other factors also are at work, including players participation in other sports that can limit their time to prepare for baseball season. Likewise, overuse injuries can be more of a hazard in warm-weather states where high school-age athletes play baseball nearly year-round.PITCHERSFrom page 16Free screenings offered for autism spectrum disorderGolisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, in partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida, offers free autism spectrum disorder screenings for toddlers 18 months to 5 years of age.

Still waiting for your carrier to pick up your vehicle? CALL AMERICAN! PET TALESAdopting a pet? BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationThese days, its not How much is that puppy in the window? but Where did that rescue dog come from? Last month, the Washington Post reported that some rescue groups pay large sums to purchase adult dogs and puppies from commercial breeders that auction them off. The rescue groups say they are saving the dogs from a life of misery, but opponents say they are simply putting dollars into the pockets of puppy mills, encouraging them to breed more dogs for the auction go-round. No matter which side youre on, transparency is the name of the game. Anyone choosing to adopt a pet from a breed-specific or general animal rescue group should ask questions about the organization first. Heres what to consider. What are the rescues bona fides? A rescue organization should be able to provide references from a veterinarian, past adopters or trainers with whom they have worked. People should be as wary about rescue groups as they are of breeders, and do due diligence in their search for a rescue dog, says Renee Bruns of Oklahoma City, national director of American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Rescue Trust. What is the animals age? Kittens are typically easy to come by, especially during kitten season in spring and summer, but puppies are less commonly available from shelters and rescue groups. A rescue organization that regularly has puppies available may be purchasing oops litters or puppies from commercial breeders. Theres nothing wrong with wanting a puppy, but acquiring one this way is not necessarily a rescue; its a purchase. Where does the animal come from? Many shelters and rescue groups, when short on animals in their own areas dogs, in particular import animals from shelters in other states or even from out of the country. That eases pressure on shelters and rescue groups with too many animals, but it can also spread disease and parasites to parts of the country where they arent typically found. Cornell University virologist Ed Dubovi, Ph.D., says two recent canine influenza outbreaks in the United States are linked to viral sequences of influenza viruses that exist in Korea. Several rescue organizations bring dogs in from Korea and other Asian countries. Reputable rescue groups have stringent health and safety protocols to prevent disease and parasite transmission. Ask if dogs six months or older were tested and treated, if necessary, for heartworm disease and other conditions before relocation. How much is the adoption fee? Some rescue organizations charge hundreds of dollars, especially for purebred dogs. For a purebred dog in good health, $400 isnt unreasonable, says Maryanne Dell, founder of Shamrock Rescue Foundation in Orange County, California. For that fee, though, she would expect a rescue organization, at a minimum, to have had the dog temperament-tested, checked by a veterinarian, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. If we get into much over $300 or $400 for a dog, Im going to ask if the rescue is going to auctions and buying purebreds, and why, she says. I would want to have that high adoption fee itemized. If this is a dog who was hit by a car and the rescue paid $4,000 to fix it, and the dog is awesome and they showed me the bills, I might not balk at a $500 adoption fee.Her own organization charges a $200 adoption fee. It doesnt recoup her costs, but it assures her that adopters value the animal. Any red flags? Instant gratification isnt necessarily a good thing. Be concerned if a rescue group tries to push an animal on you or doesnt make any effort to check out what kind of home you would provide. Easy access to a dog, no in-home interview, willingness to ship dogs, and frequent availability of puppies are all signs that you may be dealing with a dog flipper who is selling animals for profit instead of an actual rescue group. Next week: what to ask about an animal youre considering adopting. Pets of the Week>> Moon Pie is a polydactyl orange tabby and Binx is solid black. The bonded brothers are about 2 years old and need to be adopted together. Both are front declawed. >> Nutmeg is a 2-year-old terrier bully who weighs about 40 pounds.

No, I do not want to marry someone new Ive been married for 12 years to the same man and were both too old to train someone new. And I dont want to renew our vows. Im not a fan of vow renewal ceremonies I always assume that couples who renew their vows with a big weddinglike soiree are probably on the verge of divorce (no offense to vow-renewing couples). What I want is a huge, sparkling affair in a cathedral and a reception at Buckingham Palace. And, yes, you better believe Ill be up by 3 a.m. on Saturday, May 19, to watch royal wedding coverage as Prince Harry marries his beautiful, black, American princess Meghan Markle (just as I woke up before dawn to watch his mother get married and his brother get married. I will sip mimosas and I may even speak with a British accent all day). But, its not just the royals its officially wedding season and I have wedding fever. Since I cant have another wedding of my own, I want to attend all of the weddings. My husband and I went to a particularly gorgeous one last weekend on Marco Island with a beautiful first-time young bride and groom. They married on the beach on a lovely Saturday with stunning weather that was clearly ordered in by the father of the bride. My friend Melindas daughter Sarah married her love, Ashton, after a 16-month engagement and with 16 months to plan, everything was breathtaking. They got hitched without a hitch. There was a live band, an open bar, and delicious food I had not one, but two slices of cake. The dcor was all ocean-themed (Sarah and Ashton love being on the water) and the colors were blues, purples and greens. The bride and groom took dance lessons and tore up the floor expertly. Chris, the father of the bride, gave a toast that brought tears to every parent in the room. I kicked off my shoes and danced until past midnight. You can count on me to always be the last to leave a wedding. And, indeed, Ill admit, I have crashed a wedding. About 15 years ago, a girlfriend and I were staying at a hotel in Miami and as we were coming back from dinner we heard music and merriment in the main ballroom. Due to the influence of wine, we happily moseyed out to the dance floor and joined the crowd in the Macarena. No one batted an eye and we had a fabulous time. I stopped just short of joining the single ladies for the bouquet toss. I cant help it I love weddings. I love the dresses, the tuxedos, the music, the cake all of it. I have three weddings coming up one in Atlanta and two in Tennessee and come hell or high water, Im going to make it to all three of them. I often wonder if Elizabeth Taylor wasnt actually unlucky in love maybe she was just addicted to being a bride. Alas, in other news, I keep checking my mail for my invite to Meghan and Harrys wedding, but Im assuming it got lost somewhere over the Atlantic. Snail mail is so undependable these days. stephanieDAVIS

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Consider ETFsMany people havent heard of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), but theyre worth learning about, as they can serve investors very well. An ETF is a lot like a mutual fund, but it trades like a stock. Many are based on indexes and, like index mutual funds, they will instantly have you invested in the securities that make up the index they track. Here are the ticker symbols for a few ETFs of major indexes: S&P 500 (SPY), Nasdaq 100 (QQQ), total U.S. stock market (VTI), total world stock (VT), Dow Jones Industrial Average (DIA), Russell 2000 (IWM) and Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond (AGG). Like index mutual funds, ETFs are among the simplest and easiest investing strategies. If you want to manage some or all of your money passively (i.e., not studying and then buying and selling individual stocks), ETFs can provide significant advantages. For example, ETFs will often feature lower fees than corresponding mutual funds, and they can be more tax-efficient, too, with less frequent trading than their mutualfund counterparts. While many mutual funds require minimum investments of $1,000 or more, you can buy as little as a single share of an ETF through your brokerage account, with many costing $100 to $300 per share. Like stocks, ETFs can be shorted, optioned and margined. This isnt necessarily a good thing. Neither is the fact that since they can be easier and less expensive to invest in than mutual funds, some people jump in and out of them frequently. Doing so can eat up any cost benefit by racking up trading costs and buying and selling any stocks or funds rapidly can also hurt your performance. Before buying any ETF, read up on it to understand exactly what its holdings and fees are. To learn more about ETFs, click over to or visit and enter ETF in the search box.

They immediately took a nose dive, sharply falling in value. What should I do? Cash it all out and claim a loss on my taxes? L.W., Elk Gr ove, C aliforniaThe Fool Responds: That investment experience stings, but it might not be as bad as you think. Many stocks and industries can be quite volatile and technology-oriented ones can be especially so. Many solid companies and mutual funds will head south for a while, and savvy investors should expect occasional downturns and be ready to be patient.If you have faith in the mutual funds managers or in the companies in which its invested, you might want to hang on. If you dont, then its best to cut your losses and move your money to investments in which you have more confidence. That said, understand that IRA accounts work differently than regular brokerage accounts, and you dont realize taxable gains and losses in them. You can still buy and sell various holdings in them and then cash out parts or all of the IRA in retirement. At that time, funds withdrawn from a traditional IRA will be taxable income to you, while Roth IRA withdrawals will be tax-free. Taking money out of an IRA early can lead to penalties and taxes. Pfizer for Your Pfortfolio?Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) is arguably one of the best health care stocks to own right now. Besides sporting a mountain of cash and a top-notch shareholderrewards program, the company has developed one of the richest oncology pipelines in the business. The drugmakers PD-L1 inhibitor avelumab brand name Bavencio that it co-develops with Merck KGaA, tends to grab the headlines, but Pfizer also has an earlierstage oncology pipeline thats home to a slew of high-value experimental drugs and biologic therapies. Over the next decade, these under-the-radar drug candidates could very well transform Pfizer into a top dog in oncology. Meanwhile, the company is looking to sell or spin off its consumer health care unit. By shedding this business, Pfizer should have yet another significant source of funds with which to boost merger-and-acquisition activity and shareholder rewards. The companys dividend payout recently yielded 3.7 percent, with more room to grow. Between 2017 and 2022, the company thinks it can win approval for as many as 15 new drugs or new indications for existing drugs with blockbuster potential.With its robust clinical pipeline and exceptionally strong balance sheet, Pfizer is worth considering for a berth in your long-term portfolio. I trace my roots back about 150 years, to when John D. Rockefeller and others formed me.

For example, people might put off buying refrigerators or cars during a recession, but theyll still buy groceries, socks, soap, gas, medicine, electricity and diapers. Food, tobacco, energy and pharmaceuticals are some defensive industries, seen as more stable than their cyclical counterparts, such as the homebuilding, steel, automobile and airline industries. You dont have to avoid cyclical industries, but know that they can move sharply in relationship to the economy. ***QCan I match the performance of Warren Buffetts company, Berkshire Hathaway, by buying the same stocks it owns? M., Midland, MichiganANot at all. Many people mistakenly think of Warren Buffetts company as a kind of mutual fund, since it does own stock in a bunch of companies, such as Apple, American Express and Coca-Cola. We might buy or sell the same stocks that Buffett or his money managers do, but we cant do so at the same time, as their moves are only revealed via occasional required filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.Also, Berkshire Hathaway is much more than a portfolio of stocks. Its a conglomerate with strong focuses on insurance and energy, and it encompasses dozens of entire companies, such as Forest River, GEICO, Sees Candies, Fruit of the Loom, Benjamin Moore, Clayton Homes, Johns Manville, sneaker maker Brooks, boot maker Justin Brands, Dairy Queen, Pampered Chef and the BNSF railroad, among many others.

A22 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYhuge percentage declines in the last few years. Conversely, crossovers based on these sedans have seen double-digit sales increases. Fords sedans have also been sidelined during this market shift. Of the four it sells today, the youngest is the Fusion with six years since its last full redesign. The Taurus is the oldest with nine years looking nearly the same. In this same period, Toyota has fought to keep the Camry relevant and successful by going through three generations. So, Ford is at a critical point where it needs to sink significant money into cars or hang up its four-door spurs. Its also a lot easier to abandon this market right now. A few weeks before Ford announced its product shift the EPA relaxed its fuel efficiency targets. Thus, all car companies can now ignore the lightest/smallest part of the market. For example, the Ford Focus sedan and Escape crossover share a platform and similar components. The most efficient gas-powered Focus is rated at 27/38 mpg city/highway. The most efficient Escape is currently a 23/30 mpg city/highway. Still, the current Escape is about 18 percent more efficient than what was available at the end of the last decade when American car companies saw gas prices climb and sales plummet. Its part of a lesson learned. For example, the 2008 Ford Expedition SUV had a combined rating of 16 mpg. If prices surge to $4 a gallon again (unlikely, but rates are climbing) the same dealership can now showcase a new Expedition that gets 20 mpg. And Ford will also invest in more electric and hybrid crossovers to offer vehicles that break 30 mpg. Basically, Ford wont be a fuel economy superstar, but it also wont breathlessly watch the gas pumps. Besides varying fuel prices, this decision to give up sedans does make Ford more vulnerable. If cars exited its lineup today, the lowest price vehicle would go from $15K to $21K. This alienates young people looking for starter cars a key factor in building brand loyalty. Also, every other car company out there sees that trucks, SUVs and crossovers are where the growth is. So, the market is steadily crowding with more competition. And with Ford fully involved, what happens if tastes change? Crossovers are basically cars with tall bodywork. If Americans start flocking to sedans again in droves, Ford will just need to re-skin its platforms. It will take a couple of years and have large costs, but its hardly the kind of time and money required if starting from scratch. This scenario would likely have Fords finances in the red for a few years, but the coffers could be filled with cash from suspending sedan production when theyre unpopular. Thus, its risky, but there is potential for an overall winning strategy. Business decisions dont often get so much attention, except this one is especially ne wsworthy bec ause theres an emotional element. Ford giving up cars in North America is a symbol that our country is no longer looking to be the mightiest manufacturer. Elsewhere in Detroit, General Motors gave up Opel/Vauxhall. This was essentially exiting mass-production in Europe, and its a larger signal that GM has no desire to regain its number one position globally. Where the companys pride was once firmly tied to its supreme manufacturing status, its now focusing on being a leaner operation that maximizes shareholder profits. Thats not necessary a bad thing. Producing a glut of cars is what helped send them into bankruptcy 2009. In fact, GM will also be scaling back new sedan production, but not entirely. Chevrolet is giving the ax to the subcompact Sonic, and one or more of the Cruise, Malibu and Impala lines will likely also disappear. But the Buick Regal has been redesigned with an interesting sedan-like hatchback, and the LaCrosse was recently refreshed with a sporty new look. Plus, Cadillac is using its CT6 sedan as a flagship for new technology like the semi-autonomous Super Cruise. Premium brands like Cadillac also highlight a place where the sedans will likely continue to find a secure home. A lengthy leather-clad four-door has been long-standing symbol of wealth. In England, the sedan (saloon) used to be seen as a show of frivolousness design for those who could afford to waste space, because wagons (estates) offered more versatile packaging. Today, were just catching up to that standard with a preference for compact crossovers that are little more than tall wagons. Ford doesnt want to be your car company anymore, and you dont want its cars anymore. Its an aim small, miss small strategy for shareholders, and tugs the heart of the car communitys core. And if you dont like it, trade in your crossover for a sedan. BOLDFrom page 20 COURTESY PHOTOSFord Fusion assembly will cease at Ford moving forward.

According to the results of a survey by the National Association of Realtors as part of its Realtor Sustainability Program, 61 percent of Realtors report consumers are interested in sustainability. Consumers continue to make it clear that environmentally friendly features and neighborhoods are an important factor in deciding where and what home to buy, said Elizabeth Mendenhall, NAR president and the CEO of RE/MAX Boone Realty in Columbia, Mo. When asked what they consider to be the top market issues and considerations regarding sustainability, agents and brokers listed understanding lending options for energy upgrades or solar panels (36 percent), improving the energy efficiency of existing housing stock (34 percent) and the lack of information and materials provided to real estate professionals (30 percent). To account for growing consumer interest, 40 percent of respondents reported their MLS had green data fields. Among those same respondents, 37 percent said they use those fields to promote green features, 27 percent to promote energy information and 16 percent to promote green certifications. A majority of respondents (80 percent) said solar panels are available in their market, and 39 percent said solar panels increase the perceived property value. Twenty-three percent of brokers indicated that tiny homes (600 square feet or smaller) are available in their market. Among transportation and commuting features survey respondents said are very or somewhat important to their residential clients are: easy access to highways (82 percent), short commute times and distance to work (81 percent) and walkability (51 percent). The most recent NAR Sustainability Program survey also included questions about commercial real estate for the first time. Seventy percent of agents and brokers indicated that promoting energy efficiency in their commercial listings was very or somewhat valuable. The top building features clients specified as very or somewhat important are utility/operation costs (80 percent), efficient use of lighting (64 percent) and indoor air quality (62 percent). NAR initiated the Sustainability Program as a platform for dialogue among Realtors, brokers, allied trade associations and consumers. The programs efforts focus on coordination and articulation of NARs existing sustainability resources, while also supporting a growing area of interest for consumers and helping members to better assist home buyers and sellers.

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Kalea Bay offers sensational high-rise residencesClubhouse a phenomenal amenity Its been more than four months since the first residents of Kalea Bay, a gated, luxury residential high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, moved into their beautiful new homes in Tower 100, which recently sold out. That milestone prompted the main sales focus to be transferred to the communitys Tower 200. Like its predecessor, the second tower is also 22-stories with 120 homes. Specifically, 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Sales in our second tower have also been spectacular, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. In the past four months weve recorded over 50 sales in Tower 200 and surpassed the $100 million mark in sales volume. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,919 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all 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. Like the first tower, Tower 200 will have rooftop amenities including a pool and sun deck, open-air fitness and a sky lounge.Prices in Tower 200 begin at $1.4 million.The residents of the first tower, along with their family members and friends, are already enjoying the communitys main amenity area, which includes the clubhouse. It opened in early January and is now the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. The 88,000-square-foot main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, stated Lodge. 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. The clubhouse itself features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, a fitness center, 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.For more information regarding Kalea Bay, visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile.

B18 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYIntroductory pricing has ended at Eleven Eleven CentralPeople who know downtown Naples are capitalizing on the value at Eleven Eleven Central. With its location in the center of the emerging Design District along the 10th Street corridor, and with the attractions of 5th Avenue South just five blocks away, The Ronto Groups new walkable/bikeable Eleven Eleven Central community to be built on Central Avenue between 10th Street and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples is generating unprecedented homebuyer interest. Just five months after announcing the availability of 62 Phase I residences, Ronto is beginning the process of converting reservations worth more than $27 million to sales contracts. Buyers are captivated by the communitys location, amenities, floor plans, and pre-construction pricing starting in the mid-$500s. Only three of the five light-filled two-bedroom, twobedroom plus den, and three-bedroom open-concept Phase I plans remain available. Square footages range from 1,407 to 2,297 of total living space, including covered outdoor balconies. Permitting for Phase I construction is in process. Permitting to begin construction of the permanent sales office has been approved by the City of Naples and will commence over the next several weeks. With its proximity to Fifth Avenue South, Eleven Eleven Central residents will enjoy access to downtown Naples shopping, dining, and entertainment attractions, and to the new eateries, galleries, and specialty shops in the burgeoning Design District. Naples worldrenowned beach is just three-quarters of a mile from the community via the sidewalks and bike lanes on Central Avenue, or a short ride on the planned community beach shuttle. The communitys location provides ready access to Baker Park and the Gordon River Pedestrian Bridge and Boardwalk on the east side of Goodlette-Frank Road that connects Central Avenue and downtown to the Gordon River Greenway along a pedestrian and bicycle friendly route. We have experienced extraordinary homebuyer traffic since January 14th when we announced reservations were being accepted, said Wanda Cross, director of sales for The Ronto Group. Reservations for every plan and view have been processed. The appeal of the walkable/bikeable downtown lifestyle has been reflected in virtually every demographic category, including forty-something professionals, empty nesters, and retirees. Even more telling is the interest weve seen from those who know the value of a downtown location and the caliber of Eleven Eleven Centrals amenities. People who work downtown, real estate professionals who recognize the emergence of a unique, fully-amenitized community like this is long overdue, and people who want to be in the middle of downtowns excitement have secured their reservations. The reservation activity over the past two months has been extraordinary. Ronto has clearly struck a chord that is resonating throughout the market. Eleven Eleven Central will feature amenities that no other downtown community can duplicate.

B28 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Healthy Lifestyle at MediterraJust What the Doctor OrderedI hope everyone has had a wonderful winter season and that youre continuing to enjoy our glorious spring time 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 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 smokedchicken 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. Furnished models designed and built by London Bay Homes are open every day. Like me, youll love them. The interior designs by Romanza Interior Design are spectacular. Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Road two miles north of Immokalee Road. The Sales Center and model residences are open daily. Call (239) 298-7600.

C22-26 A haunting debutBook reviewer Phil Jason pleasantly surprised by new psychological thriller. C2 Sixteen albums later, Steve Earle still a maverickSBY DAN HUDAKFlorida Weekly Movie Critic Steve Earle is a maverick. Anyone who has passing awareness of the Texas native, his music and career trajectory is well aware of this. So it goes with So You Wannabe an Outlaw, his 16th solo studio outing. He and backup band, The Dukes, cut a dozen songs that return Mr. Earle to his country music roots for the first time since The Mountain, his 1999 bluegrassinspired collaboration with the Del McCoury Band. Mr. Earle and his band take the stage Wednesday, May 16, at the Southwest Florida Event Center in Bonita Springs. The seeds for the Outlaw album were planted when T-Bone Burnett and Buddy Miller, who were consecutive music directors for TVs Nashville, reached out to Mr. Earle about tapping into his songwriting skills for a couple of songs. If Mama Coulda Seen Me was used in a season one episode of the popular drama; the shows producers rejected Lookin For a Woman for season two. With a pair of songs in his pocket and a schedule that found him putting the finishing touches on last years Colvin & Earle with Shawn Colvin, Mr. Earle didnt give the Nashville tunes too much thought. But halfway through the Colvin & Earle tour, the singer-songwriter recalled in a recent phone interview, I realized that I had alimony to pay and I had to work and make another record. So he dusted off the Nashville numbers and heard a thread that runs through both of them and it dawned on me what it was, he said. The songs reminded Mr. Earle of a fa-BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIOFlorida Weekly Correspondent SEE EARLE, C10 SEE SIZZLE, C4 UMMER MOVIE SEASON STARTED A WEEK EARLY THIS year, with Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters the last week of April rather than the first week of May, which is the traditional start of the season.

Call us today.800.591.3376 (DERM) Free screenings are for new patients and by appointment only. FLORIDA WRITERSA haunting debut novel with spirited pacing and surprising twists The Bricklayer of Albany Park by Terry John Malik. Blank Slate Press. 342 pages. Trade paperback $16.99. A psychological thriller with a strong dose of procedural detail, Mr. Maliks debut novel is the surprisingly solid achievement of a man who had never before attempted fiction writing. Its success is largely dependent on an impressive amount of well-integrated research, a masterful understanding of Chicago, and an equally keen grasp of extreme mental illness. The author provides plenty of surprises for his readers, as well as a torrent of suspense. Most of the novel is presented through two alternating perspectives. One narrative voice is that of Detective Francis (Frank) Vincenti, a once-aimless young man who has become a stellar investigator for the Chicago Police Department. In this way he is quite unlike his childhood friend, Tony Protettore, who was constantly preoccupied with thoughts of joining the police force. Readers learn of Franks odd friendship with and training by ex-cop Thomas Aquinas Foster, his CPD partnership with Sean Kelly and his disastrous marriage to Beth, an aspiring lawyer. The other narrator is simply known, through much of the novel, as Anthony. A serial killer who hunts down, punishes and eradicates child molesters, hes a meticulous planner (though sometimes his plans go wrong). Mr. Malik provides the gory details of Anthonys crimes and stresses the killers interest in being celebrated for his work in cleansing Chicago of those who exploit children. Anthony stages his murders and the places where the mutilated corpses will be discovered. He thrives on publicity, and he bates the police officers whose efforts to protect children are insufficient. While Anthony understandably lives and works alone, Frank has his place in the company of his police department colleagues. Frank is part of the team pursuing the serial killer, and it is Franks attention that Anthony seems most drawn to attract. And Frank has gained a reputation for being adept at entering a killers mind though his special talent brings him no pleasure and often puts him on the edge of mental breakdown. Both men seem to have been victims of abuse and parental deprivation. And both are out to bring criminals to justice or to their demise. In spite of their demons, or perhaps because of them, the author manages to allow some sympathy for Frank and Anthony to color the novel. Thomas Aquinus Foster is both a confidant and mentor. He carefully guides Frank (and Sean as well) and suggests various ways of understanding the wily serial killer they all wish to bring down. In the last major segment of the novel, Foster becomes the third narrator. As his insights and voice convey the concluding stages of the narrative action, the relevance of his background and needs emerges more clearly. The backgrounding that sets the plot and characters into motion remains relevant as the author complicates the investigatory and psychological aspects of his carefully honed tale. The Chicago neighborhoods (one in particular), restaurants and residences are wellestablished factors in the novels overall impact. Though there are many gruesome scenes in this hard-pulsing story, its just about impossible to put the book down. About the authorTerry John Malik is a Chicagoan to the core. Born and raised in the city he loves, son of a Chicago fireman, he now explores the dark back streets and alleys of the citys imagination. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where he majored in English, and of Loyola University School of Law, he brings to his work a wide variety of life experiences. He taught English for several years in the Archdiocese of Chicago School System; designed computer systems for an international accounting firm; worked with distressed borrowers as a banker for the largest bank in Chicago; practiced law for 28 years, appearing in federal courts across the nation; became the president of a financially troubled high school; administered a foundation that provided scholarship funds for disadvantaged inner city girls; and created websites for local merchants and non-profits. Throughout his many careers, he has continued to hone his writing skills. A Sanibel Island resident since 2012, he has two other thrillers in the works. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

To borrow from one of this summers titles, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again! IN THEATERSOverboard The gender roles are reversed from the 1987 Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell original, but the premise of shamelessly taking advantage of another persons memory loss remains the same. And were supposed to laugh about it. These are not good people.TullyCharlize Theron did well in the Diablo Cody scripted, Jason Reitman directed Young Adult (2011), and the team returns here with the story of a struggling mother (Theron) and her new nanny (Mackenzie Davis).

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Exceptional quality for less than you might think Come see for yourself. ON THE WATERLive-aboards can change scenery by untying lines BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentEven the least nautical of people have likely noticed the boats and the people who live aboard them. They are everywhere in Southwest Florida, from Punta Gorda to downtown Fort Myers to Naples and beyond and on just about every body of water larger than a bathtub. What is it like living on boats? Why do it? Do folks known as live-aboards miss anything about living on land say in condos, houses or apartments? Over the winter Florida Weekly spoke with a few live-aboards about their lifestyle. They all revel in the freedom and the atmosphere and camaraderie. Miss owning a house? We asked Russ Pouliot that question at the downtown Fort Myers Yacht Basin on a sunny winter morning. He lives on the Dream Chaser with his wife, Janice. They dont miss owning a house. Were not homeless, Mr. Pouliot said. Just houseless. But what homes they have. Liveaboards enjoy mobility not available to people with homes, condos and apartments. Just ask Bob Wise. Mr. Wise lives with his wife Kathy on a 55-foot Novatec Islander named the Sea Wise. When Mr. Wise spoke with Florida Weekly the boat was moored in Punta Gorda. That could change any day. If youd like a change of scenery untie your lines, Mr. Wise said. Try doing that with an eighth-floor condo or two-story, fourbedroom house. Florida live-aboards also enjoy benefits over their counterparts in the North. Especially in the winter. Russ and Janice Pouliot used to own a home in New Hampshire. Do they miss it? No! Ms. Pouliot said quite emphatically. And worry about snow load? Thats never a problem in Southwest Florida. Even the occasional winter morning when the temperature dips into the 30s doesnt bother these transplants from the Granite State. You dont shovel that, Mr. Pouliot said of temperatures dipping close to freezing. The Florida boating lifestyle suits Russ and Janice, despite the occasional chilly morning. Your winters last three days, Mr. Pouliot said of Floridians. Thats quite a contrast to what they were used to in New Hampshire. Our summer lasts three days, Ms. Pouliot said. Several miles away from where Russ and Janice keep their boat in downtown Fort Myers the Kalisik family was living the live-aboard lifestyle at Salty Sams Marina on Fort Myers Beach. Kim and Randy and their 13-year-old son, Corey, reside on a 40-foot DeFever Passage Maker named Blue Turtle. Ms. Kalisik has encountered misconceptions about their life. She sets them straight on a blog that can be found at Many folks think we are moored out in the middle of nowhere, however, that is not the case, Ms. Kalisik said. Far from it. They often take a dingy to nearby restaurants for meals. The Kalisik family and other liveaboards have all the conveniences common to 21st century Americans. As Ms. Kalisik noted on her blog, Our electric is metered through the marina and we have water, cable and WIFI access as part of the slip package. Thats true at other marinas throughout the region. Joe Moran resides with his wife, Connie, on a 36-footer named Chesapeake that is moored only steps away from the Pouliots. He knows that the reality of living aboard can be markedly different from a perception many nonboaters may, er, harbor. Sometimes people think living on a boat is all martinis and drinks, Mr. Moran said. Its very much like owning a home. Theres something to be done on it every day. But then, when the work is done, liveaboards are on the water and if they want to, as Bob Wise said, can enjoy a change of scenery simply by untying their lines and motoring or sailing away to a new port-of-call.

vorite Waylon Jennings album, the 1972 Honky Tonk Heroes. His Nashville songs had the same vibe, he said, and theyre both based on riffs. From that point on for his new album, he decided to write for electric guitar. Its a country record, but its a very electric country record, he said about So You Wannabe an Outlaw. I couldnt have made this record if I hadnt made all the records I made between Guitar Town (his 1987 debut album) and this one, he said. I joked when somebody earlier asked me what this record was before I actually made it, and I said it might be the record I might have made if (label executive) Jimmy Bowen hadnt pissed me off after Guitar Town. It was funny, but the deal is that with all the stuff that Ive done, I dont have a single record that Im not proud of or any musical wave Ive ever made that I regret. All my regrets have to do with my personal life and not my career. With the wounds from his 2014 divorce from fellow singer-songwriter and seventh wife Allison Moorer still fresh, Mr. Earle used some of this pain for fodder in this collection of songs infused by a sense of love, loss and recovery. This Is How It Ends, a mid-tempo duet with Miranda Lambert (who had her own breakup with Blake Shelton in 2015) offers some degree of hope amid its self-explanatory title. The new albums title track (with fellow rebel Willie Nelson as a guest) and the Texas Two Step-flavored Walkin in LA both grapple with not letting society define you and getting through a rough patch respectively.Fueled by an array of established artists including Mr. Jennings and Mr. Nelson along with Jessi Colter and Tompall Glaser, the mid-1970s outlaw country movement was a reaction against the homogenized and slickly produced material getting churned out by Music Row. Mr. Earle experienced that movement and then a dozen years later became part of another resurrection against the country music mainstream alongside the likes of Dwight Yoakam, k.d. Lang and Randy Travis.I was really kind of the kid around the outlaw thing, but the door just closed before I got a record deal. Its funny I think it was (critic Robert) Christgau who decided me, Randy Travis and Dwight Yoakam were the same thing, Mr. Earle said. Somebody said Christgau liked this record and thats funny because he hasnt liked a record of mine since Guitar Town. I dont read reviews anymore. Its just a recovery thing and its not that healthy. As he continues a busy 2018 tour schedule, Mr. Earle is actively inviting opportunities to work in musical theater. Ive hung up my shingle as a composer for musical theater, he said, but Im available for hire to write lyrics and songs or to write a musical. To tell you the truth, for my own output, what Im interested in are old-fashioned musicals, where the play holds up and each and every one of the songs holds up on their own when you take them out of their environment, he added. Its starting to happen again. Dear Evan Hansen is really good and thats pretty inspiring. I loved Hamilton, which I saw three times. Its everything that its cracked up to be. But its still an opera and not a book musical. Im just fascinated with book musicals because its an American art form. We kind of invented it.

Classes begin with the basics and work toward a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of theatrical skills. Singing, dancing, diction, volume, terminology, character, costume and plot are all introduced and developed as children progress through the program. Teamwork, confidence building and fun are the goals of the program. Registration is open now for four summer sessions: June 4-15, June 18-29, July 9-20 and July 23-Aug. 3. The following programs are offered at each session: KinderAct for children in Pre-K and kindergarten; First Act for firstand second-graders; Third Act for those in grades 3-8; and Acting for Autism Spectrum Disorder/ Sensory Processing Disorder (all ages). TNP partners with The Naples Art Association so that students can enjoy theater and art on the same day. They attend a theater class in the morning and have a supervised lunch followed by a supervised walk to the NAA for an afternoon art class. Get in on the ACTTNP also offers two summer sessions of its Advanced Conservatory Theatre program for middle and high school students. Dates are June 4-29 and July 9-Aug. 3. Classes meet from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Taught by TNP staff and guest artists of TNP, ACT core classes in acting, voice and movement are emphasized along with specialized electives. Students spend the day in one core class and one elective. Along with performance classes, all students receive backstage access to learn about the technical elements of theater. Core ACT classes are: Acting is Doing Through monologues and scene work, instructor Jessica Walck guides students in how to bring truth to their acting. This class is an intensive workout for the actor to become more comfortable performing as they understand what drives their character. Voice for Musical Theatre In a master class setting with instructor Charles Fornara, students receive independent coaching and feedback in audition repertoire and work on refining the skills necessary to participating in musicals as a cast member. They explore sight-reading and harmony holding and review and polish all facets of auditioning. Dance for Musical Theatre Dawn Lebrecht Fornara introduces students to a wide variety of dance styles featured in musical theater by exploring the choreography of iconic and lesser-known numbers from Broadway shows. The class includes significant work on technique and terminology to improve dance skills, physicality and confidence. We were thrilled with the response from our spring ACT program, says Craig Price, TNP education director. Students called the classes life changing. We are thrilled to continue this level of performing arts education for them throughout the summer.

Walter Lee Younger in A Raisin in the SunEveryone harbors dreams, secret desires and tiny hopes they hold close in their heart. Sometimes those dreams come true. But what happens when they dont? How do you keep living day after day when nothing gets better, when life closes in on you? What do you do when your dreams evaporate? In Lorraine Hansberrys iconic A Raisin in the Sun, the Younger family knows all too well about unfulfilled dreams. Their ancestors were slaves and sharecroppers, but here they are, living in the south side of Chicago, struggling. Theres more mouth than paycheck, with four adults and a 10-year-old boy all squeezed into a small apartment and sharing a common bathroom with other tenants on their floor. Theres not enough space, so Travis, the grandson, sleeps on the couch in the living room. It seems salvation is on the horizon, however, in the form of a life insurance check for $10,000. (Thats approximately $85,000 in 2018.) The patriarch of the family died, and now theyre getting the insurance money. But everyone in the family has differing ideas about what to do with the check. Mama (Patricia Idlette) has a dream: that she and her two grown children could live in a house. And shed like a little garden out back. But her children have different ideas. Daughter Beneatha (Rose Thomas) dreams of going to medical school and becoming a doctor. Son Walter Lee (Derek Lively) wants to become part owner of a liquor store. The conflicting dreams cause much conflict. Mama, a religious woman, refuses to give her son money for a liquor store. Hes enormously put out by that, insulted and frustrated that she wont even listen to his plans. Mr. Lively plays Walter Lee as a man with a very short fuse, about to explode. He feels abused by the world, misunderstood by his wife, Ruth (Cantrella Canady), and family. He struts about like a bantam rooster, boasting about all he could do if only he had the money. The others, he claims, dont understand about business, they dont know how the world really works. Im a giant and Im surrounded by ants who cant even understand what Im talking about, he complains. Walter pouts, he throws temper tantrums, drinks too much. Hes verbally abusive to the women in his life. Shut up, he tells his sister. Who cares about you? he lashes out at Ruth. Blut Ruth is struggling too. The spark has gone out of her marriage, because the spark has gone out of her man. She doesnt know how to reach him, how to fix the relationship. Shes like her mother-in-laws potted plant: surviving, but barely. College student Beneatha is experimenting with various interests and ideas. Shes seeing two men: George (Peter Lange), a pretentious, rich mans son, and Joseph Asagai (Kenneth Jones), a fellow student who is from Nigeria. Both men smooth talking, good looking and sexist. Neither sees Beneatha as who she is or who she can become, only what they want her to be for their own desires. Beneatha tells her family that shes trying to find herself, explore her blackness, a concept that puzzles them. When she decides to let her hair go natural, her family and friends are horrified. Ms. Thomas has her moments as Beneatha especially when she dons African garb and energetically demonstrates a Nigerian village dance. Her family thinks shes drunk or crazy. Her character would be even stronger if she pushed just a little more and spoke more boldly. For a character with such strong opinions and feelings, she comes across a little timid. Others have small but important roles. James Robinson is despicable as Karl Linder, a white man who wants to keep the Youngers from moving into his all-white neighborhood. Hes polite, yes, but hes also racist, through and through. Keehnon Jackson plays young Travis, full of youthful energy and observant of all thats going on around him. Lemec Bernard has a small role as Bobo, a friend of Walters. And Sandra Dixon provides much comic relief as Mrs. Johnson, the nextdoor neighbor. Everyone has lived next to a Mrs. Johnson at one time or another: a busybody who knows everyones business and feels free to lecture you about yours. Ms. Dixon plays her to the hilt, insulting the Youngers with her comments. But it is Ms. Idlette who turns in a tour-de-force performance as Mama, with all her layers, faith, hopes and dreams. She is epic, rich with complexity. The temptation could be to portray Mama as a simple woman with oldfashioned ways and a blind faith, but Ms. Idlette gives us someone with depth, a matriarch whos trying to hold her family together and forge a way forward without her husband. Her scenes are electrifying, and had me in tears at one point. There are sparks whenever Ms. Idlette and Mr. Lively are on stage together. And while this is a competent cast, ably directed by Sonya McCarter (who has also directed two August Wilson plays for Theatre Conspiracy), these two actors raise the performance to new heights. Though set in the late 1950s, A Raisin in the Sun is, sadly, still relevant for our times, with the chilling rise and outspokenness of white supremacy groups and a president who was sued in the 1970s by the U.S. Department of Justice for systematically discriminating against blacks in his housing rentals. Weve come so far only to realize we havent come that far at all. The Youngers want to move out of their tiny apartment into a house in a white neighborhood. Doing so will solve some of their problems, but also present them with new ones. (If you saw the play Clybourne Park, this is the family thats going to move into the house.) The original Raisin opened in 1959 and was the first Broadway play written by an African-American woman and the first to be directed by an African-American. Nominated for four Tony Awards, it was named Best Play of 1959 by the New York Drama Critics Circle. It was subsequently made into a 1961 film, a 1973 musical, a TV film (in 1989), a 1996 BBC Radio play and at least two Broadway revivals. Theatre Conspiracys production of the play takes us on a journey, an intense emotional ride. It is a triumph of the soul.

NAPLES ARTASSOCIATION C14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ANTIQUESWhats in a name when it comes to furniture? BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELThe major furniture styles used in the United States have names, some for royalty, others for talented designers and cabinetmakers. But by the 1900s, furniture was named for styles of art. Starting in the 1600s, there was Pilgrim, William and Mary (English King and Queen); Queen Anne (also English royalty); Chippendale (Thomas Chippendale, an English cabinetmaker); and American Federal, which included the American designs and pieces similar to Sheraton and Hepplewhite (Thomas Sheraton and George Hepplewhite, English cabinetmakers). By the 1800s, furniture was designed and named for political changes, including Empire, Victorian and many revival styles that copied earlier ones. The 1900s had Mission (also called Arts and Crafts), Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, and Modern (also called Contemporary). The United States had many other less important design influences, and these were named for the countries that inspired them: Japan, Egypt, the Shakers and even what is called Moorish style, a mixture of Turkish, Spanish and Arabian designs. Decorators today like to have an accent piece in a plain contemporary room; something that is unique or at least very unfamiliar. Recently, a pair of Moorish chairs were in an auction in New Orleans. They were made in the unfamiliar style and were carved, ebonized and had mother-of-pearl inlay. The backs were pierced with scrolled crests, and seat fronts that looked like small picket fences. The pair of unusual chairs were estimated at $1,200 to $1,800. Q: In the early 1950s, I paid 25 cents each for small boxes of playing cards that have only been printed on the picture side. They are blank on the other. I traded them with other girls. I still have many of the cards. I just took them to a licensed appraiser and he had never seen any before. I need the value. Can you help? A: You and I are smarter than the appraiser. Trading cards were a popular pastime in the 1940s and s just as sports cards are today. I remember getting the jokers from all the decks of cards used by my mother's bridge game to trade with other girls. Since there is little to no interest in this activity today, there is almost no one to buy the cards. There are several playing-card clubs that meet, have printed publications and collect old playing cards, some going back 100 years. Members might be interested, but it depends on what the printed side looks like. Q: Help me find information on my mothers dishes. The name of the company is Vanity Fair Dinnerware, the pattern is Nancy Lee. The dishes have pink and blue flowers on the edge and gold trim. My parents were married in 1938 and these were a wedding gift. Id like to fill in the set. Can you help? A: The maker of your dishes is hard to find, although the dishes in Nancy Lee pattern are available online from matching services and shops that advertise on the major shopping sites. One site suggests they were made by Canonsburg Pottery in Pennsylv ania, which was open from 1909 to 1978. We found a vegetable bowl with imperfections marked down 50 percent to $16. Vanity Fair may be a name used on dishes made for a special customer like a store to sell or to use as a promotion gift. Q: My son bought a Knights of Pythias ceremonial sword and scabbard at an estate sale several years ago and gave it to me in the 1970s. The handle is black leather with some gold wrap. A helmeted head with a lion on top is at the end of the hand. The shield has U and R with a lily between them. FCB is on the blade cover with a figure of Hercules below it. The blade is in beautiful condition, silver with gilt paint designs. It says The E.R. Armstrong Co., Detroit, Mich. near the hilt. Its 39 inches long. Im downsizing, and I wonder if it has any value. A: The Order of Knights of Pythias is a fraternal organization founded in 1864 in Washington, D.C. It was the first fraternal organization chartered by Congress. The letters FCB stand for Friendship, Charity, Benevolence, the motto of the Knights of Pythias. U and R stand for Uniform Rank, a uniformed group that was formed in 1878 and marched in parades and processions. The lily was the symbol of the Uniformed Rank. The U.R. was removed as an official branch of the Knights of Pythias after 1950. There were different swords for different ranks. The end with a knights head and a lion on top (the pommel) indicates you have a sword for a Sir Knight E.A. Armstrong Co. was a manufacturer of military equipment and regalia for fraternal organizations in Detroit. The value of the sword is $250.

The design was inspired by furniture from many countries and would make a good accent piece in a plain modern room.

Cavi-Lipo reduces fat cells, improves cellulite areas and tightens skin. Naples First Medispa$199 Introductory Offer Includes Consultation and ONE 30 Minute Session 5 5 6 6 FILM CAPSULESAvengers: Infinity War (Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin) The Avengers and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe unite when villainous Thanos (Brolin) tries to take over the galaxy. Be prepared for anything, MCU fans, and rest assured the action, effects, and humor are all top notch. Rated PG-13.I Feel Pretty (Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams, Tom Hopper) A woman with low self esteem (Schumer) bangs her head and now views herself as beautiful, though she looks the same to the rest of the world. Its got a great message and will be a great for a group of girl friends to enjoy together, but its not consistently funny for the rest of us. Rated PG-13.Truth or Dare (Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Sophia Ali) College seniors enjoy spring break in Mexico, but return to school cursed to play Truth or Dare; if they dont play, they die. Its a fun idea to put real lifeor-death stakes on a game so many of us have played, but the filmmakers dont do quite enough with it to keep us entertained throughout. Rated PG-13.Beirut (Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris) A U.S. diplomat (Hamm) in early s Beirut must negotiate the release of an old friend whos been taken hostage by terrorists. Its laborious to the point that you stop caring whether the hostage, diplomat, or anyone else comes out alive. Rated R. Chappaquiddick (Jason Clarke, Kate Mara, Ed Helms) In July 1969, Senator Ted Kennedy (Clarke) drives his car off a small bridge, killing passenger Mary Jo Kopechne (Mara) and putting his political career in turmoil. What happened, how, and the cover up that followed makes for compelling drama that presents the information as objectively as possible. Based on a true story. Rated PG-13.The Death of Stalin (Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Jeffrey Tambor) Following his death in March 1953, Josef Stalins underlings scheme for control of Russia in this highly effective farce. Its silly, absurd and biting, and as darkly, morbidly funny as it aspires to be. Rated R.Ready Player One (Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn) In 2045, people use avatars to search for an Easter Egg in a virtual reality world. The visuals and action are great in director Steven Spielbergs latest, but its the retro pop culture references, along with the classic rock soundtrack, that 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.

YesWhen she was a child, Ruth Bader Ginsburg enjoyed playing with the boys, and shared their interests she was as far from a girly-girl as one could imagine. Little did she know how indicative this would be of her future, in which shed ascend to the predominantly male highest court in the land and earn a fierce reputation to boot. In 97 minutes that fly by, RBG tells Ginsburgs life story in a way that venerates her from the start, and its a credit to filmmakers Julie Cohen and Betsy West that by the end we believe she deserves the accolades. The film is not trying to be objective its sole focus is to champion a life and career well lived. So yes, it shamelessly adores, but the facts are what they are and Ginsburg made the facts a reality. What can be argued is her impact in a larger context, but thats a debate for another time. Ginsburgs legal career is traced from her being one of nine women accepted into Harvard Law School (out of 500 enrollees) in the mid s to her ultimate ascension to the Supreme Court in 1993. In between was a notable legal career in which she argued six cases and won five before the Supreme Court. As the director of the Womens Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union, she focused on cases related to gender discrimination, and in doing so was a forerunner in tackling the equality issues still present today. In addition to Ginsbergs professional accomplishments, Cohen and West also share trinkets from her personal life. Her two children and granddaughter are interviewed; we learn about her late husband, Marty; and her friendship with longtime court adversary Antonin Scalia is discussed, as is her love of opera. Through it all, her extreme intelligence and ability to reason emerge as her strongest qualities. Interviews with other notables, including Bill Clinton, who appointed her to the court, also lend perspective to Ginsburgs accomplishments. But whats constantly striking is the subject herself. Now 85, shes small in size and nothing about her is physically imposing. Shes always the smartest person in the room, able to see and comprehend things that others dont or cant understand. More importantly, she is able to convey her arguments in convincing ways. Watching her is not just a lesson in the law, its a lesson in diplomacy and a tutorial in how to bring others to your side. The end of RBG chronicles Ginsburgs recent health struggles and pop culture popularity, highlighted by her becoming known as the Notorious RBG. Darn right. She may shy away from the spotlight, but how appropriate that after years of hard work she begins to enjoy the reputation of a notably influential American. dan >> In 1999, Ginsburg won the American Bar Associations Thurgood Marshall award for her contributions to gender equality and civil rights.

Delivery Drivers Wanted CONTRACT BRIDGEAn anti-percentage playBY STEVE BECKERAssume that in a given case you have three low clubs in dummy and A-J-9-8 in your hand, and that your aim is to lose only one trick in the suit. When you lead a club from dummy and the next player follows low, is it better in the long run to play the eight or the jack? The answer is very clear. The eight is a far better play than the jack because your right-hand opponent will be dealt Q-10-x or K-10-x twice as often as K-Q-x. However, in a particular case such as the present one it may be better to play the jack than the eight. All rules have exceptions, and todays hand provides an illustration. West leads a spade against five diamonds, and South can tell from the bidding that East is highly likely to have the ace of hearts. Consequently, after taking the spade with the ace, drawing a round of trumps and leading a club from dummy, on which East follows low, South should play the jack. As it happens, the jack wins the trick, and when declarer then plays the ace and another club, he winds up making the contract because he can later discard one of dummys hearts on his fourth club. All he loses is a club and a heart. The reason declarer abandons the usual percentage play is that he cannot afford to lose a club trick to West, which would then subject him to a killing heart return through the king. Given the circumstances, Souths best chance to avoid two heart losers is to assume that East has the K-Q of clubs, and he shapes his play to cater to that assumption.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 C27 42nd ANNIVERSARY AFTER PARTY! CANOE RACE 80s and 90s | DANCE TOP 40 | REGGAE | ROCK 5.12.18 @ NoonAbsolut Vodka Presents 489 Bayfront Place, Naples 239.530.2225 VINOA bouquet of lovely ros makes a sweet Mother Days giftEvery year around the first week in April I receive samples of ros wines along with emails from winery marketing people telling me what a great idea it is to celebrate Mom with a festive bottle of pink wine. Im sure other wine writers are similarly besieged. This year, I came to a conclusion: why not? Ros wines are easy to enjoy, they come in still and sparkling versions, and theyre just so darn pretty in the glass. And, although Ive written about them in the past, Im devoting this column to the many ways you can show Mom how much you love her by adding a gorgeous glass (or two) of ros to your Mothers Day festivities. Then theres the seasonal aspect. Its May, the beginning of our traditionally toasty summers. Ros wines are great choices for warmweather sipping, because theyre generally lighter-bodied, and as they are best served around 41-45 degrees, theyre very refreshing. The samples offered here are made in several ways. Some ross are made by simply blending red and white wine until you get the color and flavor profile you want. The Mumm Napa Brut is an example. Others are made by a more complex method that involves crushing red grapes and leaving the juice on the skins for a brief time, until the proper color is achieved. As you decide on the many ways youre going to thank Mom for bringing you onto the planet, consider one or two or more of these favorites. Martini & Rossi Sparkling Ros NV ($12) Ive reviewed this wine before, but its worth a Mothers Day mention. It comes in a fourpack of 187 ml. bottles. It is a light salmon color in the glass with a perfumed nose of strawberry candy. Fun stuff in a handy package. WW 89. Chapoutier BilaHaut Ros Pays dOc 2017 ($15) This blend of Cinsault and Grenache is a dark rose pink with intense aromas of rose petals. On the palate, the blend delivers crisp mineral and pink grapefruit flavors. WW 88. Moet & Chandon Ros Imperial Champagne NV ($42) Very fine bubbles (mousse) in this traditionally made Champagne, with minerality on the nose, along with peaches and white fruit. Beautifully refined and balanced. We finished the whole bottle. WW 92. Mumm Napa Brut Ros NV ($16) A California sparkler, it is a festive light rose coral color, with a nose of peaches and stone fruit. There are piquant flavors of yellow peach, and a slightly off-dry finish. Made from 80 percent Pinot Noir and 20 percent Chardonnay. WW 89. Villa Gemma Cerasuolo dAbruzzo Ros 2015 ($18) From Abruzzo on Italys east coast, the Cerasuolo grape makes a ros wine with a deep rich ruby color, an earthy complex nose and a palate of tart cherry. Very refreshing, and definitely not your typical pink wine. WW 89. E. Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rose 2017 ($13) A blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, this wine from the Southern Rhone offers a mixed array of light fruit flavors and a touch of spice. Very pale pink, with straightforward flavors of strawberry. WW 86. Bonterra Rose Mendocino County 2017 ($11) Pale salmon color, aromas of strawberry and perhaps a bit of pineapple. The nose carries through on the palate, adding characteristic notes of white peach, watermelon and pomegranate. A dry style, matching well with Asian dishes, grilled fish and salads. WW 89.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: I recently received a bottle of a wine called Cannonau. Ive never heard of that grape. Can you tell me what it is? Fran K., New YorkA: Cannonau is grown and made on the island of Sardinia, which lies about halfway between Naples, Italy, and the Spanish island of Mallorca. The grape is known elsewhere as Grenache. Many of these wines from Sardinia, while not all that well known around the world, can be tremendous values. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

Unfortunately, I was so distracted by all the mouthwatering descriptions on the restaurants menu that I took a very long time to get down to business. It was go-time after I decided to tag an order of Tims Broccoli Toast onto my order as an appetizer. Then, as soon as it arrived at the table, I had to clean my plate. Sorry, friend. We had yet to accomplish any party planning. I was, however, very helpful once I polished off the plate of the roasted broccoli served atop toasted ciabatta and dressed in sheeps milk feta and white wine, finished off with a fried egg and Calabria chili paste but only until my entre arrived. One More Thing: Be sure to try the restaurants homemade ravioli. My wild mushroom dish was topped with a Madeira cream sauce that made my guilt over the indulgence disappear. Totally worth it.

CUISINESunburst Caf offers lots of tasty reasons for its longevityIn the more than 20 years that I have been writing about the Southwest Florida restaurant scene, Ive watched hundreds of establishments come and go. Some very good ones lasted less than a blink of an eye, while other mediocre or worse operations inexplicably stayed with us for eons. But a deserving few have kept going through the years because they have earned the right to do so by offering good food at reasonable prices and managing to serve it with a smile. On top of that, they keep up with the times and with customers ever-changing tastes. Sunburst Caf ranks among those that has earned its success, with its baker/ owner Jerome Tocio at the helm producing impressive muffins in a wide array of flavors and the rest of the crew whipping up omelets, eggs Benedict, big fluffy pancakes, sandwiches and wraps and coffees and teas in a wealth of styles and flavors. We didnt have to request pure maple syrup for the blueberry pancakes or pay an upcharge for it. It was right there on the table among the rest of the condiments. Almond milk is available as a substitute for cows milk for those who want it as my companion did in his caf latte ($3 for a single). But Im getting ahead of myself here. Lets first discuss the place that describes itself as a Costa Rican-inspired coffee house. This delightful little oasis wedged into a standard strip shopping center Pine Ridge Crossings is easily recognizable from outside because of the tropically hued chairs scattered around tables with large aqua umbrellas for shade. The color scheme continues inside, with wooden tables, more colorful chairs and some painted benches with throw pillows on top around tables built for six or eight people. They are perfect for large groups or for twos and threes who enjoy chatting with others. For singles or couples who want to keep to themselves, there are some two-tops as well. A large mural depicting a rainforest complete with wild parrots covers much of one wall. Place your order at the counter and someone will deliver it to your table as soon as its ready. It didnt take long for ours to arrive and, since my companions latte and my chai tea (with an espresso shot $3.50, plus $2 for the espresso) arrived first, we were happy to wait. The aforementioned pancakes two in a short stack ($6) were large, fluffy, crisp on the outside and tender within. They were studded with juicy blueberries and the maple syrup soaked into them nicely. Meanwhile, I was tucking into a plate of salmon Benedict ($12.95), two perfectly poached eggs atop English muffins and slices of smoked salmon slathered in creamy Hollandaise sauce. A side of delicately seasoned and lightly browned home fried potatoes (fresh fruit is another option) was equally good.My companion also ordered a spinach feta wrap ($10), which contained spinach, feta, tomato, mushrooms, olives, onions, tzatziki and Greek dressing. It, too, was fresh, taste and nicely constructed, accompanied by crisp potato chips and fresh fruit. After standing in front of a glass case containing dozens of tantalizing muffins, I felt compelled to sample one. I really wanted the Nutella one or perhaps the pineapple coconut but went for something I thought was a little healthier: the lemon poppy seed ($3.50). Each one is big enough for two to share, although you probably wont want to once youve tasted them. The muffin was moist, extremely lemony and packed with poppy seeds. It might have been even better with b utter, but I enjoyed it just fine without any. Although I didnt speak to him myself, I did see Mr. Tocio making the rounds, talking with regulars and making guests feel welcome. The rest of the team did much the same thing, from those who took your order to the nice young man who delivered it. If you check out Trip Advisor, youll find such accolades as little gem, perfect little spot, an unexpected treasure and delicious bakery among the comments. Should you be seized with the desire for breakfast at 2 p.m. or a great muffin and coffee at any time between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. any day of the week, Id recommend finding your way to the Sunburst Caf. It wont take you long to find out why its been around for 20 years.

4 LUXE LIVING MAY 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentNaples is just getting to a spot where a majority of homes built in the 1980s and 1990s are in need of a little nip and tuck. Such was the case when Nancy Wolff bought this 2,000-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath home in Pelican Bay. It was all gold and mauve gold walls, gold tile flooring, heavy gold planta tion shutters on all the windows, ornate moldings on everything, Ms. Wolff says. But I saw the bones and I loved the lot. When you can park 10 cars on the street and not be in front of anybody elses house, thats a really nice feature. Theres a lot of outside space for the size of the house. She reached out to interior designer Nan Wright of Wright Interior Group, and together they set out to create the stunner you see here. I envisioned a contemporary, clean, sleek, Miami Beach look, but warmer, says Ms. Wolff. And orange has been my favorite color all my life. I never really used it except for maybe an accent wall up north, but down here you can get away with it. What Ms. Wright designed is a home thats beautifully current, clean and comfortable. It was one big open space, which was a little too open, the designer says. We brought in more of a flow. Its now more delineated, with a clear dining room and a clear living room. We added the fireplace to create the divide. Before, it was like one long railroad car. The fireplace is, in fact, a genius element that serves as both a space-defining partition and a functioning decorative unit. And because its two-sided (and at the perfect height for Ms. Wolff to look through), you can see straight through to the lake from the living room or, conversely, from the dining area into the living area. That was a great move, the homeowner says. The renovation also involved replacing 8-foot-high sliders with 10-foot-high ones and topping them with a custom laser-cut cornice, a detail that matches up with trim that was added throughout the space to break up the wall height (the home has 18-foot ceilings at the vaulted peaks). Top: Vaulted ceilings can create some design challenges. Interior designer Nan Wright of Wright Interior Group added a fireplace to break up the space. Above and rigth: Ms. Wright added some covered area to the rear elevation for shade and protection from the elements, but most of the expansive area remains wide open to the pool and lake beyond.

6 LUXE LIVING MAY 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY COVER STORYA warm taupe-finished maple flooring throughout the interior helps balance the light blues and whites as well as the contemporary furniture. Orange accents pop inside and out, most noticeably to a pair of whimsical metal giraffe (with bobbing heads, no less) Ms. Wolff purchased at a Naples art show. I made a very spontaneous purchase, she says with a laugh. She first bought only the smaller giraffe, but when the artist delivered it, the sculpture seemed out of scale with the trees in the yard. So we negotiated a price for the bigger one. They were not inexpensive, and I was having a little heart failure thinking, Oh Nancy, what did you do now? The artist delivered the larger giraffe, with both he and Ms. Wolff fully expecting that he would take back the smaller one. But they looked so cute together, she says. I thought, Oh my, how can I split them up? They belong together. So I ended up negotiating a price for both of them.The long-necked pair look perfect in the garden overlooking a lake thats filled with largemouth bass. The original pool area was, like the rest of the home, heavily Tuscan and was surrounded by mulch and overgrown grass. And there also wasnt any covered outdoor area. To accommodate the owners desire for shade and protection from the elements, Ms. Wright designed a gorgeous open outdoor seating area that perfectly melds with the rest of the elevation. A fire pit holds court on the patio. Its a wonderful entertaining space, says Ms. Wright. There is tons of room and so many spaces where people can sit. Its meant to be a really happy space a retreat and a resort. Thats what we tried to do. Heres hoping more owners of aging homes make renovation decisions equally as smart. Wright Interior Group 6001 Taylor Road 260-4850; Alley Design to Build 997 3rd Ave. N, 793-6800; www.alleydesigntobuild.comIn dining chairs, throw pillows, art glass vases and even happy giraffe yard art, orange adds awesome pops throughout the clean, contemporary residence. Warm maple flooring balances blues and whites that dominate a bedroom and bath. All in all, its a perfect combination of whimsy and worldly.

10 LUXE LIVING MAY 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY LUANZA MAITLAND and SYDNEY WARRENThey say two heads are better than one. And if thats the case, it makes perfect sense that two talented interior designers are also better than one. To that end, Luanza Maitland and Sydney Warren create gorgeous interiors together through their work at Norris Furniture & Interiors. Luxe Livings Michael Korb sat down with them to discuss how they collaborate and how they handle their craft. Q: How is hiring designers who work as a team better than getting just one designer to work on a project? A: Working as a team, we are able to give our clients the best and most creative ideas because we research, discuss and modify things together. We have different strengths and tastes, which in turn means our clients get a broader approach to the many design dilemmas that can arise. Our clients seem to enjoy the team approach. Together with our clients, we make it a fun and pleasurable experience. Q: Do you have a certain way you build out a room? What are the steps? A: We begin each project 100 percent inspiration based. Our inspiration can stem from many different things. It can be a clients cherished piece of art, a gorgeous fabric or a piece of stone or granite. We just seem to get it at the same time and then run with it. After we have our inspiration piece, we design a furniture layout, select the furnishings and finishes and then add the jewelry to the home window treatments, artwork and accessories. Q: What do you ask clients when you first meet them? A: We ask them to please tell us about themselves and their family. We want to know how they live in their home. What is important to them? What has worked in past homes and what they want to do differently? For most of our clients, their Florida home is the beginning of bring teamwork to interior designBLAINE JOHNATHAN PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOSCHARLIE MCDONALD / COURTESY PHOTOSDESIGNER Q&AA stunning faux paint technique created by multiple layers of mica and capiz shell chips applied to the custom entertainment wall by Allure Cabinetry of Naples adds depth and drama.

Q: Is there a trend right now that youre very excited about (or one that you want to see go away immediately)? A: We love the neutral palettes of the transitional look as well as the contemporary coastal looks that work so well in our area. With soft neutral colors as a background, the homeowners artwork and personal treasures or the stunning views of the outside surroundings can become the true focal points of a room. The navy and white palette is also a beautiful and classic look. N orris F urniture & Interiors5015 Tamiami Trail N., Naples 263-0580 14125 S.
