Right off the bat it proved to be a free spirit. You could drink it, sail it, fish it, swim it, or irrigate crops with it long enough to get you and your children through a life. You could even mistreat it pee in it, throw your garbage in it, put your pesticides or herbicides in it and it might put up with the abuse. Until it didnt. Always, water gave us what we gave to it in a marriage consecrated at the dawn of time. If we offered it protection, if we respected its properties and loved it, it gave us protection most times, and a sustaining love in return. If we poisoned it long enough, we suffered for it. The marriage arrangement between water and humanity is immutable. So, I was singularly disturbed when Calusa Waterkeeper John Cassani broke the news last month that a creek winding through the backyards of densely packed Fort Myers neighborhoods for several miles before emptying into the Caloosahatchee River in downtown Fort Myers contained off-the-charts counts for enterococci, a bacteria found in feces. The EPA beach advisory level for enterococci is 70, which means a count above that becomes a health hazard. But Mr. Cassani, a water scientist whose affable outward demeanor disguises his determined desire to halt the precipitous decline of water quality west of Lake Okeechobee, measured the count at the mouth of Billys Creek at 97. Upstream through three or four miles of urban neighborhoods, he registered climbing counts of 203, 282, 292 and 471. That water is flat-out dangerous, which is the case elsewhere, too. Mr. Cassani is one of 12 Waterkeepers in Florida who recognize the lethargy that has overtaken taxpayers and leaders who still dont insist this be cleaned up now. As leaders in the not-for-profit Waterkeepers Alliance of national and international jurisdictions, these Florida Waterkeepers (aka Riverkeepers or Coastkeepers) have only a single goal, like the volunteers who join the organizations: To monitor, protect and improve their waters, along with the marine and wildlife those waters nurture, no matter what actions governments do or dont take on behalf of water. Marty Baum, Riverkeeper on the 150mile Indian River Lagoon stretching south to the Jupiter inlet near West Palm Beach, and Mr. Cassani, the Calusa Waterkeeper for a river watershed emptying 60 miles west from Lake O into Charlotte Harbor at Sanibel Island, have been wrestling for several years with the frequency and intensity of algal blooms in their waters, among other problems. The (mis)management of dirty water is killing us. The algae is the new normal. Its here to stay. And its only going to get worse, Mr. Baum told me a few months ago. But the new normal is a terrifying prospect, especially when officials dismiss algal blooms unheard of when they once occurred naturally, as normal. Thats like saying cancer and Alzheimers disease, both of which are linked to harmful algal blooms, is normal or natural, Mr. Cassani says. Cyanobacteria, the toxic threat in algal blooms, is among the original life forms on the planet. Its always been here in one form or another, and its never been benign to animals or humans. So its particularly galling to me that we would add this to our problems. And we have. For the 12-year period of a recently published study by researchers at Ohio State University, cyanotoxins persisted in the water of four Florida counties where the death rates from non-alcoholic liver cancer were twice as high as the national average, Mr. Cassani says. The counties: Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee. Those toxins have also been linked to such diseases of the nervous system and brain as Alzheimers, Parkinsons and ALS. All this compelled me with my youngest son to volunteer in the Calusa Waterkeeper organization. The outfit needs volunteers, and it needs money to do the monitoring or testing government organizations arent doing sufficiently. (To volunteer or contribute on either coast, go to Indianriverkeeper.org or Calusawaterkeeper.org.) My son and I are now watchdogs of sorts watch-waters is more accurate. From the bank or a canoe we look at water near us in a creek or a river on a regular basis. We measure its clarity, we locate the coordinates of potential problems such as fish kills or algae blooms, and we share that data with the Calusa Waterkeeper, who can make maps and nudge public officials. This reminds me uncomfortably of the two ferocious cholera outbreaks that killed tens of thousands of Londoners in the late 1840s and early s, most of them dying in agony within 48 hours of taking ill. In a 2006 book, The Ghost Map: The Story of Londons Most Terrifying Epidemic and How It Changed Science, Cities and the Modern World, writer Steve Johnson recounts how Dr. John Snow and the Rev. Henry Whitehead discounted popular notions that the air in certain London neighborhoods was killing people. They made a map of the cholera cases, house by house. Thus, they recognized that people in neighborhoods using the Broad Street pump were the ones dying in great numbers. In those days each London neighborhood had a pump where residents walked for their water. The Broad Street pump drew directly from the nearby Thames River flowing through London, a river so polluted by humans that it began killing them. Although the two heroes had never heard of bacteria, they used their map to discover that the killer cholera came from water, not air. Now almost 170 years later, were very nearly down to such map-making again in the Sunshine State. We should know better. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

So wheres the outrage over Kerry?Democrats routinely express outrage over claims of collusion with a foreign power to undermine our democracy. So where is the outrage over revelations that former secretary of state John Kerry held not one but two secret meetings with Irans foreign minister to strategize over how to undermine President Trumps plans to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal? An Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman confirmed the meetings after the Boston Globe broke the news, declaring, We dont see the U.S. just as Mr. Trump; the United States is not just the current ruling administration. Think about what this means. Iran is a terrorist state responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans in Iraq, whose leaders hold rallies where thousands chant Death to America! Kerry was working with a sworn enemy of the United States to try to undermine the foreign policy of the elected president of the United States. I thought we didnt like Americans who colluded with our enemies. Kerrys meetings with Irans leaders were not isolated incidents, but part of a formal lobbying campaign that included phone calls with European Union leaders and meetings with the presidents of Germany and France in which, the Globe reports, he discussed the details of sanctions and regional nuclear threats in both French and English. On Twitter, Trump suggested that Kerry might have violated the Logan Act, which says: Any citizen of the United States ... who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government ... with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government ... in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. In fact, no one has been prosecuted under the Logan Act in more than 160 years, and most conservative legal scholars consider it unconstitutional. Although what Kerry did was probably not illegal, it was deeply hypocritical. Recall that in 2015, when Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and 46 other Republicans wrote to Irans leaders informing them of the Senates constitutional role in approving international agreements, Kerry was incensed. My reaction to the letter was utter disbelief, he said at the time. To write leaders in the middle of a negotiation ... is quite stunning ... (and) ignores more than two centuries of precedent in the conduct of American foreign policy, Kerry said, adding that he would never have interfered in that way no matter what the issue and no matter who was president. What a difference three years make. Cotton is a sitting United States senator. The Senate has a constitutional role in foreign policy. Kerry is a private citizen. He has a constitutional role in nothing. Kerrys defenders compare him to Henry Kissinger and other former secretaries of state who regularly meet with world leaders. Secretary Kerry stays in touch with his former counterparts around the world, just like every previous Secretary of State,a Kerry spokesman said. But Kissinger does not conduct rogue diplomacy. When he meets with foreign leaders, he usually coordinates with the White House, often carrying messages for the president, and then briefs administration officials afterward. Kerry did none of this. This is not the first time Kerry has interfered in U.S. diplomacy as a private citizen. In 1970, he flew to Paris and met with the North Vietnamese while they were in the midst of negotiating the Paris Peace accords with Kissinger. Kerry admitted then that his actions were on the borderline of private individuals negotiating. What he did last month was not on the borderline. Kerry would not have had to resort to rogue diplomacy if he had negotiated a better deal. The agreement he struck could not even muster the support of a simple majority in the Senate, much less the two-thirds majority needed to ratify a treaty. As Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., correctly points out, the Obama administration made a bad deal with Iran without support from Congress. ... American foreign policy makes lasting progress when it is led by the President, approved by Congress, and presented honestly to the American people. Kerry has no one to blame but himself for Trumps decision to withdraw. And he certainly has no business colluding with Americas enemies against Americas president. Follow Marc A. Thiessen on Twitter, @marcthiessen.Rosenstein has botched the Mueller probeRod Rosenstein is doing a star turn as principled defender of the law, but hes performed abysmally as deputy attorney general, and President Donald Trump would be fully justified in firing him. The leaked questions that special counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask Trump in a prospective deposition are, if accurate, a sign that Mueller has spun out of control on Rosensteins watch. The questions (drafted by Trumps legal team after consultations with Muellers investigators) suggest a free-floating investigation of the presidents motives, undertaken by a subordinate of the president. This is unlike any special counsel investigation weve ever seen and represents a significant distortion of our system. Per the questions, Mueller wants to know how Trump reacted to news stories in The Washington Post. What he thought of FBI Director James Comey during the transition. How he feels about his attorney general. These questions grow out of an obstruction-of-justice probe centered, as far as we can tell, on Trumps exercise of the legitimate powers of the presidency. What makes Mueller different is that his predecessors were given the mission of investigating specific alleged crimes. As my National Review colleague Andrew McCarthy has repeatedly pointed out, Rod Rosenstein mentioned no crimes in his initial order to Mueller, a violation of the special counsel regulations. This amorphous, wide-ranging guidance appears to have allowed Mueller to effortlessly slide from an amorphous, wide-ranging investigation into Russian meddling into an amorphous, wide-ranging investigation into obstruction of justice. (Rosenstein followed up later with a more specific memo to Mueller.) Now, judging by the leaked questions, obstruction is the lions share of Muellers work. Absent smoking guns that we arent aware of (always possible), this is bizarre and disproportionate. We now have an extensive obstruction investigation carried out by investigators who havent been obstructed. Theres been an intense focus, for instance, on Trumps Oval Office discussion with thenFBI Director Comey about going easy on Michael Flynn. But as Andy McCarthy also notes, no one went easy on Flynn, who pled guilty to lying to the FBI. Regardless, current Justice Department guidance says the president cant be indicted. If Mueller takes heed, he is limited to indicting underlings and writing reports on his findings, with Congress the most important consumer.This means Mueller is, in effect, the lead investigative counsel for a prospective House impeachment committee. Its an important position, just not one that should be housed within the executive branch. Rod Rosenstein is ultimately responsible for the state of this investigation. On the merits, he should be fired and replaced by someone willing to exercise proper oversight of the special counsel. A more practical lever would be to push for Rosenstein to recuse himself. As a party to the firing of James Comey, he shouldnt be overseeing a probe in which hes a witness. To this point, the White House posture toward the Mueller investigation has been to cooperate and hope it goes away, when a root-and-branch legal and constitutional challenge to Muellers work is now whats called for. Surely, Mueller will want to ask questions about such an effort, too because hes the unbounded investigatory ombudsman of the Trump era.

FALLENFrom page 1 Coalition shines light on the revival of MLKs Poor Peoples CampaignThe SWFL Justice4All Coalition shines the spotlight on local and national issues of poverty and disadvantage at a panel discussion and audience Q&A from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, May 17, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples. The event is inspired by the recent revival of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s Poor Peoples Campaign, which stalled after his assassination in 1968. The new Poor Peoples Campaign multi-faith, multi-racial and non-partisan demands equal treatment for all under the law, and extends to issues such as wages, health care, criminal justice reform and clean water and air. At the upcoming meeting, panelists with local experience and expertise in tackling systemic racism, poverty, homelessness, anti-LGBTQ bias, food insecurity and environmental degradation will debate how to answer this new call for a moral revival. Speakers include Dara Albert, Dr. John Capece, Micaela OBrien, AbdulHaq Muhammed, Zac Vega and Derek Perry. Leading the revived Poor Peoples Campaign are the Rev. Liz Theoharis, a white theologian originally from Milwaukee, and the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, a black civil rights leader from North Carolina whose Moral Mondays movement challenged limitations on voting rights and helped unseat a governor. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples is at 6340 Napa Woods Way, off Pine Ridge Road. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the program will start at 6:30 p.m. The event replaces the SWFL Justice4All Coalitions monthly Moral Monday Meetup series program for May. Admission is free.

Olive the owl is newest animal ambassadorMeet Olive, the newest addition to the Conservancy of Southwest Floridas family of animal ambassadors. An adult barred owl, Olive was admitted to a Sarasota-area wildlife center in late 2017 before being transferred to the Conservancy for further examination. She had sustained multiple injuries to the left wing that doctors ultimately considered permanent, leaving her unable to fly. She cannot return to the wild and now makes her home at the Conservancy Nature Center. Olive is already becoming a star on our animal ambassador team, said Heather Skaza-Acosta, education director at the Conservancy. Our ambassadors serve a vital role in helping to educate visitors about a species, and having Olive at the von Arx Wildlife Viewing Pavilion provides guests with an up-close connection to the species with whom we share our home. Barred owls are robust with round heads, light yellow bills and dark brown eyes. Their feather patterns alternate white and brown, and they emit loud, piercing calls, almost like a scream. Barred owls typically live in dense, mature forests or wooded habitats in both rural and urban areas, conducting much of their hunting at night. Olive was named following a social media campaign this spring, and Conservancy staff revealed the name during the centers Earth Day Festival in April. Other ambassadors at the Conservancy include Horatio, a red-tailed hawk, and Aquila, a bald eagle, along with several alligators and multiple species of snakes, turtles, fish and more. The Conservancy, which has a goal of protecting the areas water, land, wildlife and future, incorporates ambassador animals into its education programs to inform visitors about native and non-native species that call Southwest Florida home. The Conservancy Nature Center is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Admission is $14.95 for adults and $9.95 for youth ages 3-11; children 2 and under are free.

The FGCU board of trustees voted in April to award Mr. Schmieding a doctor of science degree in recognition of his exceptional scientific innovations and contributions for benefit to the public good. FGCUs highest academic recognition, the honorary doctorate has been awarded to seven other distinguished individuals since 1997. I have known Reinhold Schmieding personally and professionally for 15 years and believe him to be an exemplary leader in business and education advancement in Southwest Florida, said Blake Gable, chair of the FGCU board of trustees and CEO of Barron Collier Companies. His legacy will reflect the caliber of character of Florida Gulf Coast University. Gov. Rick Scott said, I have had the great fortune to watch Arthrex grow in Florida thanks to the innovation and leadership of Reinhold Schmieding. Reinhold and his company have created thousands of jobs for Floridians, and I am proud that this global company calls Southwest Florida home. While saying he greatly appreciates the recognition from FGCU, Mr. Schmieding expressed his deep respect for those who have devoted years of study to earn doctoral degrees and acknowledged the synergy that exists between the universitys and his companys missions. In parallel, we seek to make contributions in making people better and providing a stronger cultural and economic impact to our Southwest Florida community, he said. Arthrex has a perpetual need for skilled employees as we continue to grow and invest in Southwest Florida. FGCU is a great resource in providing educated students seeking a career in the medical device industry and who wish to live and contribute to our community. To those who supported Mr. Schmiedings nomination for the doctorate, noteworthy individuals themselves, he represents the embodiment of leadership, innovative thinking and community engagement that FGCU fosters. A man of great character, generosity and vision, former FGCU Trustee J. Dudley Goodlette wrote in a supporting letter. The most progressive leader I have met in many years, added Naples philanthropist Myra Janco Daniels. Reinhold lives an exemplary life and has a passion for his business that provides an excellent example for our students. A world-class inventor, business leader and entrepreneur, wrote Richard Behr, dean of FGCUs U.A. Whitaker College of Engineering.Born into a family of physicians, Mr. Schmieding has led the development and marketing of more than 12,000 surgical orthopedic products and techniques and overseen more than 1,100 patents and patents pending that have enhanced quality of life for countless people around the world. Established in 1981 and headquartered in Naples since 1991, Arthrex started with two employees and rapidly grew into a worldwide leader in sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery and orthopedic surgical implant and device design and manufacturing. It now employs 3,000-plus in corporate and manufacturing operations, and 1,000 in worldwide subsidiaries across 13 countries. And yet, Arthrex remains significantly committed to individuals, institutions and causes close to home. While continuing to experience exceptional corporate growth and demand for its products worldwide, privately held Arthrex has repeatedly ranked among Fortunes list of best places to work. In addition to employing more than 20 FGCU bioengineering graduates, Arthrex provides opportunities for undergraduates to complement their classroom learning with hands-on industry experience that helps ensure their success. The company also supports the universitys outreach to the next generation of scholars in science, technology, engineering and mathematics by sponsoring annual programs such as the FGCU Coding Academy for elementary, middle and high school students. With its impact on campus and off, academically as well as economically, Arthrex and its founder are pillars of the Southwest Florida community and beyond, according to Mr. Behr. We have an outstanding working relationship with Arthrex. This would not exist without the clear support of Mr. Schmieding, the dean said. Arthrex engineers regularly serve as industry mentors to groups of bioengineering students who complete yearlong capstone design projects in their senior year. Arthrex also provides summer internship opportunities for our bioengineering students and hires our graduates as full-time employees. Helping surgeons treat their patients better is how the company states its mission. But in pursuing that calling, Arthrex also is helping FGCU prepare students better for rewarding careers that benefit all of society.

Shriver to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, has received a $300,000 grant from the Golisano Foundation to expand its work in Southwest Florida to serve more individuals with IDD. Three members of the local area have committed to serve on the local Best Buddies advisory board: Samantha Clark of Caring Transitions in Bonita Springs and Naples; Suzanne Tocci of Tortuga Preserve Elementary in Lehigh Acres; and Jodi Suskind of Thrivent Financial in Fort Myers. Best Buddies area director Melanie Musick says the organization will focus on developing one-to-one friendship opportunities in schools (elementary to collegiate levels) in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties, with hopes to expand into Glades and Hendry counties. Best Buddies began operations in Southwest Florida in October 2017. Funding from the Golisano Foundation provided for office space and operations at 5237 Summerlin Commons Blvd. Ms. Musick and program manager/school liaison Katie Vasquez are the only two full-time employees. Best Buddies chapters are in place at Florida Gulf Coast University, Fort Myers High, Ida Baker High, Lehigh Senior High, Manatee Middle, Gateway Charter Intermediate, Varsity Lakes Middle, Tortuga Preserve Elementary and Babcock Neighborhood School. Each chapter is supported by a faculty advisor and/or special education advisor plus a chapter president, in addition to Ms. Vasquez as program manager. We are so pleased to support the launch and expansion of Best Buddies in Southwest Florida, said Ann Costello, executive director of the Golisano Foundation. The success we achieved opening Best Buddies in Western New York has enabled us to replicate that in Southwest Florida. We had some delays launching due to Hurricane Irma, but the team in Southwest Florida made up for that and picked up a lot of steam in a short period of time. Best Buddies has an exceptional track record for focusing on the next generation, changing attitudes and fostering inclusion and friendships that transcend differences. We are excited that we are able to expand this work building inclusive communities in Southwest Florida. In conjunction with presenting sponsor FGCU Best Buddies, the local Best Buddies office will coordinate its inaugural Southwest Florida Friendship Ball, a prom-like event for high school and college members, set for Saturday, Nov. 3, in the Cohen Center Ballroom at FGCU. Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information, call Ms. Musick at 275-2510 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A14 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Program about Muslims available Lubna Alam of Fort Myers is a Muslim who grew up in Pakistan. To share knowledge about the Islam faith and culture, she presents programs to churches and groups throughout Southwest Florida. To request information or a program from Ms. Alam, contact her by email at email@example.com or call her at 920470-2394. Her facebook page is Muslim Women Council of SWFL. Muslim facts Islam is the name of the religion. A person who practices Islam is known as a Muslim. The adjective Islamic usually refers to objects and places, not people. The term Mohammedanism is an outdated term for the faith and is usually considered insulting. Mohammad ibn Abd Allah was born around A.D. 570 in Mecca, Arabia (present-day Saudi Arabia) and died on June 8, 632, in Medina, Arabia. He claimed that when he was 40 years old, he received his rst revelation from God. Famous Muslims in America include Janet Jackson, Muhammad Ali, Shaquille ONeal, Mara Brock Akil (writer/producer of the series The Game and Girlfriends), Mos Def (Yasiin Bey), Mike Tyson, Kareem AbdulJabbar, Ice Cube, Akon, and Anousheh Ansari, the rst Muslim woman in space. violence is what shades thinking. But Muslims living in Southwest Florida and experts of the Islamic faith will say these notions are misconceptions, misunderstanding and stereotypes based on mass media or lack of education. And it shows an ignorance that hurts everyone. To better understand the life and challenges of the Southwest Florida Muslim community, Florida Weekly spent nearly two months speaking with residents and clerics and attending religious services at area mosques. Trust needed to be gained. This meant meeting in coffee shops, stores, businesses, restaurants and religious centers or mosques. It meant late-night phone conversations as Muslims jockeyed the time between work and family life. It also meant checking personal biases and fear. It meant giving respect and compassion. But most of all, it meant being humble and human. For meet-ups I wore modest attire, as the Muslim faith and culture is one based in humility and modesty. At one of the mosques I visited I wore a scarf and removed my shoes before entering the prayer area for women. Though some of these activities were at first a bit uncomfortable, a few moments of discomfort are not much compared to a daily life of looking behind you, worrying about being accepted because of ones attire or being on edge because national media just reported a terrorist event involving a Muslim individual. Knowing faith, cultureJUST AS MUSLIMS HAVE A LONG-INVOLVED and enmeshed history in the nation, they are sewn into the fabric of the Southwest Florida community. They come from different parts of the globe, including the U.S. They are proud of their heritage, faith and of being Southwest Floridians. Their careers and lives are as varied as the countries and cultures from which they come. Local Muslims work in the medical field, finance, education, business, cuisine, technology and the clergy. Less than 1 percent of Florida residents are of the Muslim faith, according to a Pew Research Center report. But numbers in the U.S. are growing. As of 2015 there were 1.8 billion Muslims in the world about 24 percent of the global population, according to the Pew Research Center estimate. Islam is the worlds second-largest religion behind Christianity, and it is the fastestgrowing major religion, according to the Pew report. This means chances of getting to meet someone who is Muslim are increasing. And area Muslims would like to have the chance to get to know their nonMuslim neighbors and to share who they are and what their faith is about. Muslim residents from Fort Myers, Naples and Port Charlotte have differences and commonalities within the Southwest Florida community. Some are from the Arab nations while others hail from Southeast Asia, Europe and the U.S. While all share a common thread with their faith in God and adherence to the scriptures in the Quran, their cultures are unique and diverse. Culture and religion, theres a line between the two, said Yolanda Mohammed, a Port Charlotte resident. Ms. Mohammed said its important to understand the distinction between ethnic culture and the Islamic faith. According to Imam Mohamed AlDarsani of the Islamic Center for PEACE in Fort Myers, the Islamic faith is the scripture and how Muslims adhere to God. That is fixed and not interchangeable. But culture varies from country to country and ethnicity. For instance, there is no scripture in the Quran specifically saying a woman needs to wear a head covering, but in different countries the culture often dictates this practice. Culture aside, faith to the Muslim community is everything. Mehfuza Harmon is as passionate about making well-executed and delectable Indian dishes at her Fort Myers restaurant, Le Gourmet Indian, as she is about practicing her faith. During a recent visit to her simple but cozy restaurant, Ms. Harmon stirred a large pan of rice and talked about standing up for women and being strong. She worked as a banker before operating her restaurant that caters to judges, lawyers, reporters and all walks of life. The petite, dark-eyed beauty from India is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to standing up for her beliefs and what she feels is right. She does not wear a hijab, but rather a simple black skullcap atop her dark, thick hair. She and her husband Richard Harmon, a Muslim convert and self-described hillbilly, spend their time running their business. I proudly tell people I am Muslim, she said. Ms. Harmon is fiery and caring. She talks about a homeless man who comes by. She said hes just having a hard time and needs some help. She allows him to stay and makes sure he gets something to eat. I dont judge, she says.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 NEWS A15Mr. Harmon, 58, who quietly works at the restaurant making coconut peanut butter, conv erted in 2001 before marrying Ms. Harmon. Initially the decision to convert it was a challenge, he said. But it did not take long for Mr. Harmon to acclimate and learn the prayers and Muslim way of life. The process was not hard, he said. A lot of it made sense. Soon the warmth and camaraderie that he gained with his newfound brothers as Muslim men consider them connected him, he said. As we spoke, Hana Ahmad, an awardwinning Lee County schoolteacher, entered the restaurant to chat with Ms. Harmon, a dear friend. Ms. Ahmad is a member of the Nation of Islam and hails from New York. She is warm and devoted to her career as a teacher. She said she has never met with any discrimination in Southwest Florida and puts her effort in helping her students develop confidence and inner strength. A few moments later, Imam Al-Darsani came by and we all sat at the table and talked about life. There was laughter, frank discussion and the imbibing of a sweet coconut drink in essence it was like eating at the family dinner table. This is my homeZAYNAH BAKIR, 36, IS MARRIED TO AN emergency room doctor, is the mother of two children and works as a real estate businesswoman in Lee County. While I visited her mosque in downtown Fort Myers she spent time explaining Muslim culture to me. She showed me a poster on the wall at the humble mosque depicting the tenets of the faith. Her emerald green-hued eyes sparkled as she spoke in soft notes about her faith and people from Baghdad, Iraq. Though Ms. Bakir grew up in the U.S., her parents both are from Baghdad. She strives to help the Southwest Florida community understand the Muslim faith and correct any misunderstandings. And like Ms. Bakir, Hasan Kajtezovic wants to share his faith and compassion for the community. Mr. Kajtezovic, 32, is a Bonita Springs resident and member of the Islamic Center of Naples Inc. The soft-spoken young man has lived in the U.S. for nine years. He is from Bosnia. Mr. Kajtezovic, who is in the medical supply business, is married and has a 2-year-old son. He is best known for his love of cars and playing soccer, he said laughing. I am very happy to be in this country, he said. I have practically grown up here. This is my home. For 32 years, Haffeza Sattar has lived and worked in Punta Gorda. She and her late husband ran an auto repair shop in the city. During her work at the shop she had frequent contact with customers from all walks of life. Ms. Sattar, 68, connected with people because of her zest for life and big, bright smile. Though she would not allow bad language in her shop, she was liberal with love and compassion for everyone. I love to smile, she said. I love to say hello. I am always breaking the ice and that makes everyone mellow. Razia Usman, who has lived for 25 years in Naples, said being Muslim in Southwest Florida has been for the most part a positive experience. I have been very fortunate, she said.Finding common groundIMAM AL-DARSANI REFERRED ME TO Lubna Alam, and we texted and spoke on the phone a few times. Ms. Alam agreed to meet with me to help educate me about the Muslim faith. I found a spot to park in downtown Fort Myers, grabbed my notebook and padded off to the Starbucks coffee shop at Broadway and First streets. The thumping of my heart matched the quick pace of my walk. I have to admit I was nervous. What were we going to talk about? My worries dissipated as soon as we met. Ms. Alam, a beautiful woman who moved here with her family last August from Appleton, Wis., flashed a smile and we began to talk. It was clear that we had much in common and chatter flowed easily. Ms. Alam, who grew up in Pakistan, has an MBA in finance and is married to a local gastroenterologist. She has four children and is an activist for human rights. She runs an informative and exciting class about Islam at area churches and community centers. Her work is insightful and scholarly. Everything was on the table during our conversation. We discussed fashion, religious modesty, prayer, God and life. We also chatted about our families and work and causes we have taken on to better the world and ourselves. Though I have four dogs and no children and am Jewish and not Muslim, we felt a kindred spirit in our way we choose to see the world and our role in it. That evening we covered much material and ideas. Time seemed to evaporate. We laughed, compared stories of families and lives but mostly we just connected as two 40-something women.

activities such as grocery shopping, going to the beach and even buying a cup of coffee often comes with extra challenges for members of the Muslim community. Some of these challenges are in the modest clothing attire and head wraps that many Muslim women choose to wear as a sign of their faith. The decision to wear a head covering is a personal choice made at any time in a womens life. It is a choice for deeper piety and modesty and a Muslim womans connection with God. And though wearing a head covering varies from culture to culture, it is a decision made by the woman not anyone else. According to Imam Al-Darsani, donning a hijab is personal, spiritual and a decision to be made by the woman wearing it. Its an act of worship, he said. Imam Al-Darsani said that often people confuse religion with culture. Certain countries, for instance, are more conservative and might impress upon Muslim women to wear a head covering while other countries let it be. It is not considered a must in the Quran to wear a hijab, Imam Al-Darsani said. In the Quran, men and women are 100 percent equal, he said. Imam Al-Darsani, 61, said he never pushed his daughter to wear a head covering. And his wife Paulette, a convert to the Muslim faith, does not wear a hijab, either. But the decision does not always come easily. And in Southwest Florida, the decision to wear a hijab is often fraught with challenges of fitting in, being ostracized and even becoming a target. Dina Abedrabbo gets questions about her hijab, such as, Are you hot? The Fort Myers resident and business owner handles the questions and stares she gets from time to time. No matter what, I see people looking at me, she said. But Samera Musallet said she chose her faith over fear. I put (the hijab) on (on) New Years Eve, she said. I worried what will (others) think about it. It was very hard. I felt like everybodys staring at me. Ms. Musallets voice falters a bit when she recalls the first time she wore a head covering to a Port Charlotte Publix 13 years ago. Ms. Mussallet said she felt so unnerved that she left her shopping cart in the produce section. But the next day she mustered the courage to go back and face the public and any scrutiny that could follow. Ms. Mussalet said she feels so strongly about how she is seen in public because it not just her as an individual that the world is seeing. On her mind, and the minds of many other area Muslims when they go outside of their homes, is that they are not just representing themselves, but the entire Islamic faith. Its hard for us, she said. The need to put ones best foot forward, is a duty that many local Muslim residents feel compelled to do in order to curb and soften the fear and misunderstanding often connected with the Islamic faith and culture. Since 9-11 its been a challenge, Imam Al-Darsani said. You have to go out of your way to prove that your religion is about peace and harmony. Facing IslamaphobiaAT THE CRUX IS THE FEELING THAT ONE must answer for the actions of radical extremists who twist sacred scripture and God for dark deeds. Experts say that if the U.S. doesnt stem Islamaphobia, the fear of Muslims, it will get worse. Islamophobia is getting worse, said Dr. Craig Considine, a sociology professor at Rice University. Hate crimes are going up. I link it to the racialization of Islam. Dr. Considine teaches a course about American and Islamic relations. His book Muslims in America: Examining the Facts is to be released in July. Dr. Considine said that to improve relations and correct misunderstanding about the Islamic community at large, Muslims and non-Muslims need to be aware of cultural bias and ignorance. It goes both ways, he said. Just having a name that sounds Arabic or in some way Muslim can cause challenges. Imam Al-Darsani recalls being detained at the airport for two hours after an international flight. He said he was picked up at the door by two authority figures and questioned about every book and publication he had in his possession. In another instance he was invited to speak at an area church by a local pastor. But some of the congregants were less than accepting and had to be asked to leave by the pastor. They were not happy about me being there, Imam Al-Darsani said. Ignorance is always a problem within and without the culture. And if there is a bombing or some other deadly event on the news, local Muslims hold their breath and hope the deed was not committed by one of their own. Lets pray its not a Muslim, Imam Al-Darsani said. At the Islamic Center of Naples, President Mohammed Usman said that after living in Naples for 45 years he has learned to take much with a grain of salt. He has found support and peace within the Southwest Florida city. But still he longs for change in the overall picture. We want to live in peace the same way you want to live in peace, he said. And peace is still but a dream to many. A local Muslim woman recently contacted Imam Al-Darsani because she was forced to quit her constructionrelated job. Apparently some co-workers were allegedly threatening to hit her. He and his friends and members of the Muslim community face various challenges most of which they just brush off because they keep hoping to inspire the true tenets of their faith peace, harmony and compassion. Sometimes you have to help make people (see), said Razia Usman, a Naples resident. At her work at an upscale kitchen and cooking store in Naples, Ms. Usman, who wears a hijab, has faced a couple of people who refused to speak with her and acted like wasnt there. She tried in vain to explain to the customers but they ignored her anyway. They acted like I didnt exist, she said. Young Muslim residents who already must navigate the often-choppy waters of youth have the additional weight of their faith to bear as well. For Salaar Alam, 17, contending with ignorance toward his faith landed him a suspension for in-school fighting.

Ms. Mussalet and others like her are convinced that love and kindness will bring everyone together despite differences. There is such good people in the world, she said.Muslim facts The basic beliefs one must have in order to be considered a Muslim include a belief in the One God; all the prophets of God; the original scriptures revealed to Prophets Moses, David, Jesus and Muhammad; the angels; the Day of Judgment and the Hereafter; and the divine decree or destiny. Although Muslims are often associated with the Arab world, fewer than 15 percent of Muslims are Arabs. Muslims are found among virtually all ethnic groups, nationalities and countries. Five million to 8 million Muslims live in the United States, and there are over 1,200 mosques. Muslims have been a part of the cultural landscape in America for the past 200 years. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the rst revelation of the Quran to Muhammad. Muslims celebrate two great Islamic holidays. The rst is Eid al-Fitr, the Feast of the Breaking of the Fast of Ramadan, and the second is the Eid al-Adha, the Feast of Sacri ce. Muslims believe there are ve actions that they should perform. These are known as the Five Pillars of Islam: Shahada (the declaration of faith), Salat (the duty to pray ve times a day), Zakat (giving to charity), Siyam (fasting during the month of Ramadan) and Hajj (making a pilgrimage to Mecca). factretriever.com A16 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY

The Fort Myers High School senior said the teacher who had knowledge of the fracas refused to call it racially motivated, which would have mitigated the punishment. I feel like my religion is nothing but a joke, he said. Now after the suspension Mr. Alam just keeps to himself instead of mingling and connecting with many of the other students. Educating othersSOME MUSLIM RESIDENTS SAY THEY GIVE of their time, resources and hearts in order to help people understand that being Muslim is not akin to being harmful or negative. Dina Abedrabbo and her daughter, Layla Abedrabbo, a Dunbar high school student, say they face stereotypes. Ms. Abedrabbo and her husband, Omar Abedrabbo, are from the Middle East. They still have to field misconceptions that Muslims in the Middle East all have an oil well, sleep in the desert in a tent, ride camels and all have dark, swarthy skin rather than a rich medley of hues and features that make up Muslims. But the Abedrabbo family would rather be kind and forgiving than rigid and vengeful. After Sept. 11, life for the members of the Muslim community became challenging and uncertain at times. A Fort Myers resident threatened the Abedrabbos two years ago at their business, the Sahara Market, in Fort Myers. The man, James Benjamin Jones, had threatened the local grocer as well as another local grocer. The man pleaded guilty to the threats. Though the action didnt push the Abedrabbos out of their business, it was disconcerting and unnerving to the parents of five. So they try to create a positive environment for their children, the customers and the community. I try to give them a smile to break the wall between us, Ms. Abedrabbo, 38, said. Ms. Abedrabbo can be spotted at her family-owned business that includes a hair wig shop, helping people select hairpieces or food for Islamic families. She flutters around her shops wearing her hijab and calling after her young daughter who plays with her toys in the back of the store. Fighting the fearMS. ABEDRABBO, DURING A CONVERSAtion at her shop in Fort Myers, spoke of her choice to wear a hijab, and the joy of being able to relax with her female friends. Her daughter Layla was coming to the shop to talk about having difficulty registering for classes at Florida SouthWestern State College. Dina said she was busy as her husband was out of the country for a few weeks. Women have to be strong, she says. Layla, 18, said most of her friends understand her faith and accept her for her. She scrolled through her cell phone showing me pictures of her and friends goofing around and enjoying their youth. But she said she stills gets a little scared to wear a hijab at an area grocery store. And she must deal with classmates who get leery with the Arabic term Allahu akbar or God is great. A young man in her class connected the phrase with meaning someone has a bomb. Dina just shook her head. There are some ignorant people, she said. But Dina detailed how she and other Muslim friends look forward to sharing their faith and lives with others in the community. During Ramadan which starts in mid-May, people are often invited to break the fast at area mosques and homes. Fear is everything, Dr. Considine said. We have to overcome our fears. You have to be brave. He suggests something as simple as eating together within communities. He said his students benefit greatly from participating in a dine and dialog program. The first step in forming better relations with people is breaking bread, he said. Its got to happen at a very human level. It has to start there. Some area Muslims are giving a dose of love in their day-to-day interactions within the community. Ms. Mohammed, 70, works two days a week in a gastrointestinal clinic in Port Charlotte. Originally from Trinidad, the bubbly, soft-spoken medical provider is quick to laugh and share stories. She shakes her head when she recalls some of the experiences of living a Muslim life in Southwest Florida. Her voice is punctuated with sighs as she talks about a female patient who upon seeing her hijab told her youre scaring me. The woman went on to tell Ms. Mohammed about how hard American women fought for rights to not have to wear a head garment, or in her eyes, not be oppressed. Ms. Mohammed asked her if she would like to see another nurse. The woman told her she didnt scare her that much to require a different care provider. In another patient interchange, Ms. Mohammed attended to a big, burly male motorcyclist covered with tattoos who looked at her as if she was from another planet. He point blank asked her why she was wearing a head covering? When she told she was Muslim and explained a little bit about her faith he responded with surprise. He gave her a big hug that encompassed her tiny frame and said, I will never again believe everything I see on TV. And at this, Ms. Mohammed said this is what its all about showing the world that Muslims are good people. Were not what you see on TV, she said. This is what were trying to do is reach out to the community. Rabbi Stephen Fuchs, the senior rabbi at Bat Yam Temple of the Islands on Sanibel and a lifelong social activist, author and teacher worldwide, has worked with Imam Al-Darsani on interfaith work. The two stood sideby-side protesting at a local Wendys fast food restaurant this past season. They were supporting Immokalee farm workers. Were walking together, Rabbi Fuchs said. It doesnt matter that hes Muslim and I am Jewish. Respect for difference and finding a common thread is what weaves the community together. This planet is getting smaller and smaller, Rabbi Fuchs said. We all have to live together. Learning about each other is vital to creating harmony. For some, like Lubna Alam of Fort Myers, the need to educate is compulsory and almost a religious obligation. She has created a kind of basic Islam 101 PowerPoint program that she presents at area churches and community centers. Her program is straightforward, detailing facts and information about the Islamic faith with a question and answer session afterwards. The class seems to draw the curious and the questioning. During a recent session at All Faiths Unitarian Congregation in Fort Myers she fielded questions about Muslim life and the faith. Questions ranged from modesty and dress to Islamic radicalism. Ms. Alam answered all questions with patience and detail even the ones that were a bit rattling. When one gentleman peppered Ms. Alam about Muslim women in relation to being oppressed she expressed that most Muslim women choose to wear a hijab or head covering and that most feel free and not oppressed in their Muslim womanhood. Along with the educational programs, Ms. Mussalet and others believe in helping the community better understand the inherent goodness of the Muslim people by showing them through charity and acts of kindness. After Hurricane Irma, Ms. Mussalet and friends gathered emergency supplies and delivered them to people hard-hit in Immokalee. On a regular basis Ms. Mussalet, her family and fellow friends and congregants in Port Charlotte donate blood, feed the homeless and help build homes for the needy with the Habitat for Humanity organization. Giving of yourself and your resources is a tenet of the Muslim faith. We try very hard, said Ms. Mussalet. I want people to love each other.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family High timesA Florida Highway Patrol trooper arrived at the scene of a crash in Orlando on April 29 to find Scott Ecklund, 32, uninjured but highly agitated. Trooper Glaudson Curado arrested Ecklund after Ecklund helpfully told the trooper he could get more meth than had been found in the search of Ecklunds wrecked Chevy Impala if the trooper would allow him to leave the scene. Mr. Ecklund was making no sense during our conversation, Curado wrote in his report, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Ecklund, who was arrested earlier in April for crashing a truck into a house and claiming to be an FBI agent as he brandished an assault rifle, was charged with meth possession and driving with a suspended license and taken to the Orange County Jail.Indecent exposureNeighbors of the Pooperintendent, a New Jersey school superintendent nabbed for repeatedly defecating on a high school running track, were nonplussed by the news. Thomas Tramaglini, 42, superintendent of schools in nearby Kenilworth, was charged April 30 in Holmdel, N.J., Municipal Court for defecating in public, lewdness and littering after being caught on surveillance video relieving himself on a daily basis during his run at the Holmdel High School track. The track is about three miles from Tramaglinis home in Aberdeen. But neighbors told NJ.com that Tramaglini always struck them as a nice guy Except for pooping on the field, one added. Another dismissed all the attention: If he wasnt a super, this wouldnt even be news.Smooth reactionsJose Arreola, 49, of Bellflower, California, was more angry than scared when a police officer drew a gun on him March 16, mistakenly thinking Arreola had stolen a roll of Mentos, which retails for $1.19. A security camera at an Orange County service station captured the incident, showing Arreola placing the Mentos on the counter along with a $20 bill. As he waited for his change, Arreola put the mints in his pocket, which is when an off-duty officer behind him pulled a gun out of the pocket of his hoody and ordered him to put the mints back on the counter. When the clerk confirmed Arreola had paid, the officer said, My apologies. It was traumatic, the whole incident, Arreola told the Orange County Register. Are you seriously pulling a gun out over a pack of Mentos?Questionable judgmentAngelique Sanchez, 26, of Denver was asked to provide a urine sample for a prospective employer on May 3, so, of course, she stopped off at a 7-Eleven store in Aurora to apply the final touch: She put the urine-filled bottle in a microwave and turned it on, whereupon the sample blew up. A 7-Eleven clerk, who observed a yellow liquid ... and the smell was unquestionably urine dripping from the microwave, confronted Sanchez, who wiped the liquid out of the microwave and onto the floor, then walked out. KUSA TV reported that police caught up with her at a nearby clinic and issued a summons for damaged property. Medical expert Comilla Sasson guessed that Sanchez was trying to restore the sample to body temperature.Ooohhhh-kkkaaaayyyVisitors to New Yorks Fort Ticonderoga were in for a special treat as locks of hair from Revolutionary War general turned traitor Benedict Arnold and his first wife, Margaret, were put on display during the seasons opening weekend of May 5-6. Curator Matthew Keagle told The Associated Press Arnolds hair was recently rediscovered in the museums collections and had been preserved by the family. The private historical site obtained the hair in the 1950s. Saving a lock of a deceased family members hair was a common practice during the 1700s. Arnold helped capture Fort Ticonderoga from the British during the opening weeks of the Revolutionary War.Weird clicheDrivers along I-70 outside of Indianapolis thought it was raining money for them May 2 as $600,000 in cash tumbled out the back doors of a Brinks truck and onto the highway, the Indianapolis Star reported. State police spokesman Sgt. John Perrine said an undetermined amount of cash has not been accounted for, as people were jumping over fences and crawling on the ground to pick up loose bills flying around. In a tweet, he warned: Finding a large sum of money is no different than other property. If a brand-new car fell off a semi, would the 1st person to find it get to keep it? It belongs to someone else.Thats one way to do itWhen Leroy Mason, 68, of Barton, Vermont, takes care of a problem, he doesnt do things halfway. On April 30, as his smoke detector blared yet again, Mason aimed his 20-gauge shotgun at the cursed piece of electronics and fired twice. Unfortunately, the shots also hit the adjoining wall of an occupied apartment. Fire and EMS crews called to the scene had been there before, according to a Vermont State Police news release quoted by Boston25 News, as Mr. Mason has complained in the past about frequent false alarms ... and was upset that fire crews would not relocate the detector. Mr. Mason took it upon himself to relocate the smoke detector ... When first responders relieved him of his shotgun, Mason rearmed himself with a Colt .45 handgun and demanded his shotgun back. Mason was finally subdued and charged with aggravated assault with a weapon and reckless endangerment. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

The 300 sedan in sporty S model trim is one of the best examples. It continues a blocky retro-style design with accessory and suspension upgrades to make it a more contemporary machine. For those familiar with Chrysler history, the 300-series is quite legendary. The name start ed in 1955 as a way to advertise that the top-of-the-line car made 300 horsepower a big feat at the time that made it a NASCAR darling. Chrysler would continue to use the designation for its top cars into the s and 0s. When the line was reintroduced in 2005, the trapezoidal grille and bulldoglike stance were original pieces. Still, it was obviously inspired by the large and imposing 300 sedans of the mid60s. The sheet metal has been updated since then with more defined creases, but overall, the design has continued for an extended time. This hasnt weighed too heavily with Chrysler, as sales have remained steady for the last half-dozen years. Like a wide-lapel suit, it never has lost that Frank Sinatra level of retro cool. The S model is one of the newest trim lines. Exterior chrome is traded for black around the grille, lower air dam, behind the headlights, and around the windows. This gives it a less fussy appearance that makes a very Americanstyle sedan feel a little more European. Inside, there is a similar level of bright work elimination. Nearly everything that was polished silver color has been traded in for an equally glossy piano black. Aside from the blackout, and paddle shifters on the steering wheel, the interior is basically the same as any other Chrysler 300. Thats not a bad thing. Chryslers have one of the best infotainment interfaces in the industry for both the number of features and their logical layout. This leaves room for separate essential switches (like climate control) to have their o wn clean and uncluttered space. In fact, separate space is what the 300 really does well. More than the retro styling, it upholds the idea of the classic American sedan by offering good rear seat room. Its the kind of space reminiscent of a time when adult-sized room was needed so that both couples could ride together to the Friday night supper club. Also, just like the classic s sedans, this is powerful. The 300S has a base 3.6-liter V6 engine that gets a boost over the other trim level. It produces 300 horsepower, which is a great nod to the cars famous namesake. Additionally, all-wheel drive is an option with the V6 engine. But for modern times, the 5.7-liter V8 is the true powerhouse. After all, it even carries the muscle car famous Hemi name. The 363 horsepower V8 is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission to give it better economy. The result is a nice growl when the accelerator is pegged to the floor and plenty of oldschool torque gets unleashed. Plus, the S models firmer suspension and Sport mode steering make the car feel tighter in turns and more predictable in traffic. But people who are looking for a true muscle car experience can trade in some luxury to go over to the related (and cheaper) Dodge Charger. Price for the Chrysler 300 is more than just about its siblings. Our V8 test car is loaded with nearly every option available, and that gets the window sticker close to $50k. This is a solid entry, but it isnt up to that price class. Chrysler knows it, too, because the company traditionally offers one of the most generous rebate programs. So its really closer to a $40k car out the door a much more accurate reflection on the value. For those who like the sporty looks of the S package, and want to save even more, a V8-powered version with only standard features can fall below $35,000, after incentives. This same rebatebased pricing means the first rung of the 300 ladder with a V6 can often be had for around $25,000. Thats a particularly nice deal for people looking for a traditional large rear-wheel drive sedan from an American brand. The Chrysler 300 is old-school, and the S trim is a modern makeover. So while the supper club might be gone, this at least makes the ride to Applebees feel chic. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Mayo created the care network to promote collaboration with like-minded organizations and physicians, share expertise and improve the delivery of health care to patients. Mayo and NCH believe that by working more closely together, we can increase the value of health care and make a difference for patients and our community. Solving the most serious and complex medical challenges one patient at a time is a core competency of Mayo Clinic. We admire that culture and want to learn from and emulate Mayos best practices. Chief Medical Officer Dr. Frank Astor, Chief Strategy Officer Michael Riley and I recently convened at the Mayo campus in Jacksonville with more than 100 colleagues from 43 care network member organizations that collectively ha ve 23,623 beds, 18,415 physicians and 97 hospitals around the world including China, Saudi Arabia and the Philippines. Our goals: to continue to learn best practices from each other, to drive better outcomes, to diffuse knowledge, to enhance quality and to network with peers. Dr. Gianrico Farrugia, Mayo CEO in Jacksonville, shared that the medical-scientific-industrial campus is in the midst of disruption on multiple fronts: novel treatments, new medicines, innovative technology, unlocked computer power, disintermediation of payers, and global suppliers all of which create opportunities as blind spots are uncovered. Working with trusted colleagues who have different viewpoints facilitates seeing around corners, anticipating changes and maximizing opportunities, he said.SEE WEISS, A27 SEE #STANDUP, A27 Join David Lawrence Center and #StandUp for healthy minds, safe kids BY SCOTT BURGESSSpecial to Florida WeeklyThe Parkland school shooting is still fresh in our minds and hearts, a sobering reminder of the importance of students mental and emotional well-being. Sadly, our children are more at risk than ever before. At risk of being bullied in person or in cyberspace. At risk of suicide. At risk of being exposed to deadly opioids. And in todays culture, they are at risk every time they walk onto a school campus. With 50 percent of all lifetime cases of mental illness beginning by age 14, the time is now to intervene to help our youth grow healthy minds and learn effective coping strategies. Thats why this month, in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, David Lawrence Center is launching #StandUp, a community-wide campaign to help keep our kids healthy and safe. The goal is to bring attention to the issues of mental and emotional health so we can intervene earlier and avoid tragedies like in Parkland and far too many other schools. In Southwest Florida, there are 46,000 youth age 17 and younger who have a serious, debilitating mental illness; thats 20 percent of the youth population who need our help. Yet currently, on average, it takes eight to 10 years from the onset of symptoms to the time of intervention, with many waiting until adulthood to seek help. We must #StandUp to prevent this unnecessary suffering and the damaging, lasting effects of untreated mental illness, which include jail, unemployment and death. Untreated mental illness and addictions lead to more deaths than traffic accidents, HIV/AIDS and breast cancer combined. We need to #StandUp for our young people those in high school, college or entering the workforce who are dying in the primes of their lives largely due to preventable causes. For example, The rate of suicide in the United States has increased an alarming 24 percent in the last 20 years and today accounts for 18 percent of deaths among people ages 15 to24 years old. Homicide is the third leading cause of death among this age group, 87 percent of which were committed with firearms. At 15 percent, the fourth leading cause of death for adolescents and young adults involves drugs or alcohol. We can and must do better. The #StandUp movement is about education, raising awareness, developing collaborations and increasing screening and follow-up care. Together, as neighbors, we can #StandUp to help identify troubled children at risk early and to ensure easy, direct access for them to expert counselors. At David Lawrence Center, accessing help is easy and immediate. For crisis situations, counselors are available 24 hours a day through the Emergency Services Assessment Center. Same-day, walk-in assessments for all new clients are available five days a week through our access center. Already our team of professionals is taking action to help keep kids safer at school, at home and in the community. By collaborating with educators, youth organizations, churches and law enforcement, we are working hard to better protect our kids, save lives and connect children with the care they need, when and where they need it. allenWEISSallen.email@example.com BURGESS
We now have two mental health liaisons working full time in local schools, coordinating with teachers, coaches and counselors to identify kids in crisis and ensure they receive help. This year, we also embedded a DLC clinician with the mental health intervention team of the Collier County Sheriffs Office, whose members respond to emergency calls that are suspected to have a mental health concern. This team responded to the many threats in our local schools following the Parkland shooting and will continue to respond and monitor all future threats. All we need now is the community to join us by supporting those around us. We need you to show compassion, understanding and support for mental health and to #StandUp to help. By doing this, we will make Collier County healthier, happier, stronger and safer one child, one family at a time. Scott Burgess is president and CEO of the David Lawrence Center.

Virtual reality and life-size 3-D printed models assist surgeons with complex repairs, an example of which was the successful separation of conjoined twins. Immuno-viral therapeutics are now being used to treat cancer. Viruses were first observed destroying cells years ago in the cure of Burketts lymphoma, a rare form of cancer endemic in Africa. Nothing happens when you stay home is an adage my parents stressed to my brothers and me when we were growing up. It certainly rings true in regard to our trip to Jacksonville to learn from the best Mayo and our fellow care network members.

You look online or go to the shelter, walk through once or twice, and, hey, that one in the third cage to the right looks like what you had in mind. But is he really the right choice? Adoption counselors and volunteers at shelters and rescue groups say people dont ask enough questions about the pets theyre interested in, leading to mismatches in personality and lifestyle. I do Abyssinian rescue, says Linda Kay Hardie of Reno, Nevada. Some people are attracted to the beautiful looks of the Aby, but they dont realize the high activity level and intelligence of the cat. One of my Abys came to me after he was returned to the breeder by someone who didnt know that Abys are high energy and need a lot of attention. Ask about health needs, especially if you are interested in a particular breed. Veterinary care isnt one-size-fits-all. Nicole Morrison of Houston, who was rescue coordinator for her local cavalier King Charles spaniel club, says cavaliers, for instance, need regular teeth brushing and dental cleanings, as well as weight control to prevent obesity. A breed rescue coordinator should be able to fill you in on specific needs of the breed and an individual dog or cat. Think about your lifestyle and how you enjoy spending time with a dog or cat. More important, ask what the animal youre considering likes to do and whether that matches your activity level and what youre looking for in a companion animal. Common questions potential adopters ask include Is she housetrained? How much does he shed? Is she a lap cat? Those are good questions, but be aware that appropriate house manners or desired behaviors such as lap sitting may not appear until the pet is comfortable in new surroundings. Maryanne Dell, one of the founders of Shamrock Rescue Foundation in Orange County, California, says even well-trained animals may have accidents in a new home because environmental changes can be upsetting. Its important to give them time to settle in and ensure that they dont have opportunities to make mistakes. Many rescue pets have been turned over by their owners because they are old or have medical or behavioral issues, Dell says. Others are saved from kill shelters by rescues for the same reasons. A good rescue will disclose any and all of the issues that might affect an animal and how he may act in the new home. Former shelter adoption counselor Sharon Melnyk of Berkeley, California, suggests some more in-depth questions to ask: Is this animal well-socialized or accustomed to interacting with people? How does this animal react to children? Does this animal get along with other cats or dogs? Are there any dogs or cats I should consider who havent caught my attention? Consider behavior and personality, not just looks. Melnyk says it can be heartbreaking to see sometimes shy or reserved cats pawing at people as if trying to get their attention, only to be ignored. Even if a particular animal isnt what you had in mind, give him a look. You may find a friend for life. Laura Anne Gilman of Kenmore, Washington, recalls going to a shelter with the idea that she wanted a black kitten. A large orange adult cat reached out to grab her arm both times she walked by. She stopped to see him, and he snuggled his face into her neck. She and Boomer have been together for 15 years now. Pets of the Week>> Cassidy is a cute, spayed adult calico who has a loving disposition and beautiful coloring. >> Gypsy is a sweet, adult spayed mix who wants to know she is loved and safe. >> Henry is a handsome neutered domestic shorthair who has a sweet demeanor. >> Uma is a young adult spayed mix who loves people, toys and other dogs.

Ive written before about how much I love a good gadget and I truly enjoy modern technology; what I would do without my iPhone, my iPad and the allknowing voice of Alexa, I do not know. But the health features on my Apple watch are beginning to make me decidedly unhealthy. I used to have a Fitbit, but then my gadget-loving husband upgraded me to an Apple watch as a gift. At first I loved how it would vibrate on my wrist whenever I got a text or a phone call. So snazzy, right? But then I downloaded a sleep tracking app to my iPhone, which connects to my Apple watch, which reads my heart rate and somehow tells me exactly what time I fell asleep, how many times I woke up and how restless I was throughout the night. According to my all-knowing watch, I am the walking dead. Take last night for example. Apple watch tells me I only slept for six hours and 10 minutes and that only four hours of that sleep was restful. It then shows me a battery-like symbol that says Im only a little over halfway charged to get through my 16-hour day. Immediately, I feel sleepy and cloudy plus, Im anxious that I might run out of life by 2 p.m. and collapse into darkness like a phone that hasnt been plugged in long enough. But what if I didnt wear my watch to bed? I tend to think Id be blissfully ignorant about how much of my sleep was restful and how much juice I had left in my battery. One night when I didnt wear my watch to bed, I checked my sleep app just for kicks. Not enough data, it simply read, and my body battery was at 0 percent. So, if we dont electronically track our sleep, does it really count? My watch also tells me that my average heart rate is 78 beats per minute. What does that even mean? So, I Google a chart that tells me its below average for my age. Great. Thanks, Apple watch and Google. Thanks a lot. But, wait. I forgot to wear the watch on a couple of random days so is this average truly accurate? I Google low heart rate and the Internet informs me that I may have hypothyroidism or hemochromatosis or Hashimotos Disease all of which sends me down a World Wide Web rabbit hole of looking up symptoms for diseases that start with H. Just once, Id love to Google a symptom and have a screen pop up that says, Youre fine. Dont worry so much. Calm down. Have a glass of wine. Call your best friend, and if she thinks you really need a medical opinion, make a doctors appointment. Love, Google. Apple watch also informs me how many calories Ive burned each day. My goal is 1,200 and yesterday I only burned 633. This makes me depressed. My watch might be snazzy (reader, it can take PHOTOS), but if it makes me feel depressed, anxious and tired by giving me too much information about my health (or apparent lack thereof), is it making my life better or worse? By the way, Ive never actually used my watch to take a single photo. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. When Too Much Is BadOne way that many investors set up their portfolios for trouble is by keeping too many of their dollars in too few investments. That can happen if youve accumulated gobs of shares of stock in the company you work for. Yes, its great when you can purchase it at a discount and when you can easily dollar-cost average, regularly buying more shares, no matter the price, in order to build a big stake over time. You probably know more about your employer than any other company, too, which gives you an edge. Too much of a good thing is still too much, though. Just think of Enron: When it imploded, it wiped out many employees savings. Remember that you already depend on your employer for all or most of your income. Its risky to depend on it for the bulk of your investments, too. You might also invest too heavily in an industry you know very well, especially if you expect great growth from it. It is indeed good to understand your holdings very well, but even if you have great confidence in them, they can disappoint you. Plenty of great companies have surprised many people, going out of business or declaring bankruptcy. Finally, you might end up too concentrated in one or a few holdings if they grow in value much faster than your other holdings with, for example, one company going from representing about 5 percent of your portfolio to making up 20 percent of it. Thats risky, as it leaves you vulnerable if disaster strikes. Companies do sometimes fail. They may end up in scandals. Great technologies become obsolete (think of typewriters and VCRs). Excellent managements give way to mediocre managements. Competitors show up and grab market share. When it comes to your hard-earned dollars in stocks, dont put too many eggs in too few baskets. A good rule of thumb is to try not to let any holding make up more than 5 percent of your overall net worth. Apple RegretsMy dumbest investment was Apple yes, one of the worlds most valuable companies. I bought shares of it back when they were trading in the teens, held for several years while the stock moved sideways, and then sold when the stock moved into the $20s. I had originally bought into the company after my wife gave me an iPod for my birthday I was so impressed that I thought it would change the world. The shares have split 7-for-1 since then, too. Doh! R., onlineThe Fool Responds: Lots of investors have regretted selling their shares of Apple over the years. The company may seem untouchable now, with its recent market value north of $800 billion, but it didnt always look that way. Apple was struggling in the 1990s, losing money and with low market share for its computers. The 1997 return of Steve Jobs (who had been ousted in 1985), along with the introduction of the iMac and the iPod in 1998 and 2001, respectively, marked a turnaround. Following the 2007 debut of the iPhone, things really took off. Since Apple went public on Dec. 12, 1980, its stock has soared more than 42,000 percent. Yet even today, investors dont fully agree on how well it will perform from here. You can ignore the stock splits, though: They do increase your number of shares, but they decrease the share price proportionately. Booking ProfitsIn 1998, a travel website called Priceline.com debuted, featuring a Name Your Own Price service. While many dot-com era startups never reached profitability and failed, Priceline prospered. Today, it has rebranded itself Booking Holdings (Nasdaq: BKNG), which includes not just Priceline.com but also the Asia-based travel site Agoda, KAYAK, Rentalcars.com, restaurant reservation site OpenTable, and its biggest brand (and smartest purchase), Booking.com. The business of online travel and accommodations searching and booking has grown huge, and Booking is the world leader with 2017 revenue of $12.68 billion, up 18 percent over 2016. Management expects its double-digit growth trajectory to continue.Consolidation within the industry has put a huge portion of the overall online travel business in the hands of just a few companies. Booking Holdings does face challenges, as rising competition has led some to fear that hurdles to further revenue gains could prove difficult to overcome. Yet through smart acquisitions, the company has been able to answer past competitive threats.With solid economic conditions across much of the globe and a rising interest in travel, the outlook for the industry is bright, and Booking Holdings has established itself as a key growth leader. Its likely to hold on to that role for years to come and deserves consideration for a berth in your long-term portfolio. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Booking Holdings.) My name came about due to a 1929 merger of two aviation companies. One was founded by a guy who beat the Wright brothers at an international aviation meet in 1909. During World War I, that guys company became the worlds largest aircraft maker, employing thousands. Over the years I was influential in developing air-cooled engines, early flight simulators and innovative propeller designs. Today, based in Davidson, North Carolina, and with a market value near $6 billion, Im a global company, employing about 8,600 people and serving the commercial, industrial, defense and energy markets. Who am I? (Answer: Curtiss-Wright) Temper That TradingQIm thinking of investing in some volatile stocks. Would it be effective to sell them after they go up a bit and then buy them again after they drop, holding them for a few weeks or months at a time? S.L., Pleasanton, CaliforniaAThats risky. For best results when trying to build wealth through the stock market, aim to hang on for many years, not weeks. Remember, legendary investor Warren Buffett has said his favorite holding period is forever, and that he would be fine if the stock market opened for trading only once a year. Some stocks will rise relentlessly for a stretch, and if you exited them, you could lose out on a lot of gains while waiting on the sidelines for a dip in price. Also, frequent trading will rack up lots of trading commissions. Even if youre paying just $5 per trade, trading 20 times a month will cost you $1,200 a year. Meanwhile, while gains from stocks held more than a year get a lower tax rate (15 percent for most of us), shorter-term gains are taxed at your ordinary income rate, which could top 30 percent. Its better to invest in companies you believe in, aiming to hang on for years. Otherwise, youre just guessing. ***QI want to invest in fast-growing stocks that are priced below $10 per share. Where should I start? J.C., Gainesville, FloridaADont focus on a stocks price. A $5 stock can be worth 50 cents (and may fall to that soon), while a $200 stock can be a bargain that will triple in value over several years. Seek healthy, profitable companies trading for less than their shares are worth, and be patient. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

In some cases such revisions go with zoning changes in Naples, a fact that could ultimately create a sea change in Neapolitan urban design, with an even wider emphasis on residential up and commercial below, she suggests. The downside of that: Some service businesses are forced out as lease prices race upward, forcing residents of these appealing communities back into their cars for laundry or groceries or maintenance needs, she points out. Like Ms. Brown, who opened her firm in Naples more than three decades ago, 50 miles up the road in Fort Myers architect Christopher Lee has also chosen not to expand his manyyear firm, Christopher J. Lee Architects Inc. simply as a reaction to boom-times in a boomtown. Instead, he focuses only on work he and his four-person team want to do. That includes specialized medical-building design and such sparkling new community jewels as the Westin banquet center at Tarpon Point in Cape Coral. For a four-person firm to do a job of that magnitude is unusual and speaks well of us we had to compete against some big firms from outside the area. So the workload (for architects) across the region has grown but weve resisted the urge to grow the firm with it. We only take on work we can handle which put me back into the profession, more handson, something I love, he s aid. Part of that focus stems from Mr. Lees caution; he and the firm, bigger then, lived through the recession. We had to take some drastic measures, and we did that and stayed the course but now hes much more cautious. But not everybody is small, or as cautious. Some architectural firms grow with the growth. Architect Damon Romanello, founder and CEO of Studio+, just hired 10 new architects and designers for the companys headquarters office in Fort Myers. With satellite offices in Tampa and Irvine, Calif., now the integrated architectural and interior design firm with a sister surfaces company doing specialty ceilings and floors includes more than 60 employees. Mr. Romanello started with eight in 2011. The expansion has created challenges of its own, including finding skilled trade labor to meet the many on-the-job demands. So instead of subcontracting, which is typical in the field, he brings his own fully employed talent to the jobs. That works. Business has only gotten better. Right now theres a diversity of projects occurring that play to our strong suits, he explained. Those include hospital clients, a variety of senior-living and independent-living-facility clients, and designing K-through-12 schools. The opportunities come in markets created by a strong economy and the arrival of new residents who will drive up the population of the region from Naples to Port Charlotte to more than 2 million people by or before mid-century, demographers predict. Am I worried about the future economy or the firm? he said. We try to create our future, but as a business owner Im always worried. The competition is coming all the time well-educated, widely experienced architects and designers hungry for work. Lotus Architecture, for example, with offices in Naples and Fort Myers, includes 25 creative and experienced professionals feted in the March issue of the national Commercial Architecture Magazine, for rebuilding both the inside and outside of the 24-story Campo Felice independent living tower on the Caloosahatchee River in downtown Fort Myers. Its a very sound building, welldesigned, all concrete, said Michael Sheeley, who partnered his Fort Myers firm with Don Stevenson Design in Naples to form Lotus beginning about 18 months ago. Mr. Sheeley and Mr. Stevenson are copresidents, with offices in Naples and Fort Myers. We completely gutted Campo Felice, removed all glass, put in new impact glass, which was a big project in itself. And the proof is in the pudding: It came through Irma without any problems. Thats what quality materials and quality design can do. It turned an old building nobody knew what to do with downtown around 180 degrees which in turn offers a massive and robust economic injection to the City of Palms, and its historic downtown. We formed Lotus to overcome challenges in this market, and to accommodate a heavy workload. As resoundingly strong as the market is its very competitive, very hot one of the challenges is finding project managers and CAD people. Were advertising for them now. And were doing thousands of multi-family units: Between the Dunes in Naples, with a giant new clubhouse addition, to luxury family projects in Naples, to workforce housing near downtown Fort Myers and in Cape Coral, were busy. Its a vibrant, strong economy. Among the newest arrivals to step into the creation-chamber of a sizeable new future is architect Chad Terwilliger, a Hoosier by birth and upbringing who has opened a new office, Pier 76 Architects, in Port Charlotte. Mr. Terwilliger followed in his fathers footsteps as an architect, doing custom home designs in the Midwest but earning his first architectural license in the Sunshine State. He spent much of his youth vacationing with his family in Florida, and fell in love with it, he says. After working with his father, Dick Terwilliger, in Indiana and in Nashville for six years, he has now realized a dream by opening the Florida office of the firm, he says. The firm will concentrate on custom home design, with images at the website, www.pier76architects.com. My father is more conservative in his sense of design, and Im probably the newer, edgier designer, Mr. Terwilliger said. He has a lot of experience designing around problems Floridians may face, such as rain or flooding and other natural challenges, he said. Those problems seem to be increasing in the Midwest, as well as in Florida. There are more restrictions on building here than in Indiana, he noted in materials, such as all types of glazing, that might be lighter in color, that dont attract as much heat, that kind of thing. In the end, much of their design is aimed at customer need and customer want, but working architects also have a sense that theyre working for the future, and for the hearts and minds of the people who inhabit it. When you think of a hospital or medical facility, youre going there to transform your state of mind, to transform yourself mentally or physically, explained Mr. Romanello. In education, youre going there (to a school) to transform your life for the better. And in church work, which we do, youre seeking a spiritual transformation. To do that well and widely requires three things, perhaps: wide experience, deep education and an economic boom. Then the knowledge of fine architects can work to the good. Our knowledge, says Ms. Brown, supports the making of Architecture of sensibility, sensitivity and delight. You probably cant do better than that.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 BUSINESS A33 MONEY & INVESTINGDemand for labor is up yet wages remain stagnantAccording to all the economic indicators, it is a great time to be an American worker. The unemployment rate is at a historical low of 3.9 percent, down from 10 percent in 2010. The number of job openings is currently at an alltime high of 6.6 million jobs. The U.S. Labor Department reported that the number of workers quitting their jobs to find new ones is on the rise. And the National Federation of Independent Business stated that their members top problem was finding qualified workers. Yet wages in the U.S. remain stagnant. So why is workers pay not increasing when there is such an apparent acute labor shortage? Economics 101 teaches that wages are simply the result of the supply/demand for labor. If there is a shortage of labor or and increase in the demand for workers, wages should rise as businesses are required to pay higher salaries to attract new workers to their company. And the converse is also true when there is an increase in the supply or labor or decrease in the need for workers. In this situation, employers can deny raises or even cut wages knowing that that competitors probably wont be stealing their workers and even if they did, there are many other workers to take their place. However, today, the Federal Reserve and many economists are perplexed because there clearly is a labor shortage yet wages are not rising. The last time the unemployment rate was this low, wages were growing at almost double the rate that they are increasing today. There are four major theories as to why this is the case. The first involves skill mismatch. Some analysts believe that the jobs that are being created today are ones that typical Americans looking for work are not trained for. This includes everything from engineers to computer programmers to electricians and plumbers. As a result, these higher-paying positions do not get filled and wages remain stagnant. The second reason given for low wage growth is the globalization of the labor pool. Historically, goods and services were produced within the local market where these products were sold. However, with improvements in transportation, communications, and technology, it has become very easy to produce goods and services from anywhere across the globe. Today, very few of the goods and services consumed in the U.S. are produced here. So even though U.S. labor remains scare, global labor is not. Therefore, companies do not feel pressured to raise wages of jobs that can easily be outsourced to another country. Third, robotics and other technologies have limited worker pay increases. As computers become smarter and as people become more comfortable doing everything from shopping to banking online, there is less demand for human workers. Business owners and managers are frequently filling job openings with a technological solution rather than a person. This has inhibited many employees ability to demand higher wages.And finally, Wall Street has contributed to limited worker pay increases. Historically, when a company had increased profits it would invest a bulk of this money in more plants, employees and higher wages. Today, investors and analysts reward executives who return more money to shareholders in the form of dividends and stock buybacks. Therefore, more companies today are giving more money to investors than employees.Unfortunately for most U.S. workers, these four factors affecting wages are not going away any time soon. But there are things that people can do to improve their financial well-being. Foremost, learning a new in demand skill can be a big help. While this is clearly easier said than done, the hard work will certainly pay off. In addition, being flexible as to location can also help. Each state and city has different work demands and an employee who can relocate will always be in a better position. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com Awards & Recognition Dawn Montecalvo, president of the Guadalupe Center in Immokalee, was among 26 community leaders selected by Gov.

If approved by members of both boards, the combined entity would serve more than 7,000 active members in Collier County. The plan-of-merger document has been approved by both NABOR and MIAAOR boards of directors but requires majority approval by members in order to proceed. If approved, members will be served by a single MLS system and enjoy greater networking, expanded services and increased professional development. In early January, we formed a merger task force consisting of members from both groups who discussed features of the consolidation that would produce best outcomes, Gary Elliott, MIAAOR board president, said. The move to merge is consistent with a trend occurring among independent boards in other geographic areas of the country, including Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. This is a great benefit for brokers and members alike as it will simplify their day-to-day processes, said Rick Baranski, NABOR board president. With consolidation, he added, brokers will no longer be required to pay for access to two MLS systems, two board membership fees and two separate IDX fees. MIAAORs approximately 550 members are encouraged to vote online from May 21-30. NABOR members will cast their votes at the May 31 membership meeting.

B6 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays clubhouse a hit with residentsSecond tower now under construction If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays clubhouse will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular main amenity area, which includes our community clubhouse. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot main amenity area, which opened in early January, is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adultsonly pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a fitness center, a snack bar, a lakeside fire pit, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Lodge. The indoor/outdoor restaurant serves incredible meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts. Guest suites that can accommodate overnight guests and family members are also located nearby. Residents also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse and takes them to the beach. Two of the top-rated beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Lodge. They include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. The completion of the main amenity area at Kalea Bay coincided with the completion the communitys first residential tower, which is sold out. For the past five months, the sales effort at Kalea Bay has been focused on the communitys second residential tower. To date, it has recorded over 50 sales and surpassed the $100 million mark in sales volume, said Lodge. In fact, earlier this month, we actually started construction on Tower 200. Like Tower 100, Tower 200 has 120 residences. Its also 22 stories in height and will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. 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 of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Like Tower 100, Tower 200 will also feature a rooftop pool, open-air fitness and sky lounge. Whether lounging poolside or enjoying the company of friends in our community room, the views from the rooftop can only be described as spectacular, stated Lodge. We had very high expectations for our sky amenities in our first tower and I must admit that those expectations have been exceeded on every level. Prices at Kalea Bay currently start at $1.4 million. For more information regarding Kalea Bay, visit the onsite sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile north of Wiggins Pass Road. Call (239) 793-0110 or visit KaleaBay.com.

B16 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY The Baywood showcases DIVCO Custom Homes in-house DESIGN-BUILD capabilities, taking a custom home from concept through construction with greater ease and homeowner peace of mind. License #CGC052793 NAPLES | MARCO ISLAND | ESTERO301 West Street, Pine Ridge Estates For more information or to schedule a model tour, call Jennifer Lofstrand at 239-300-1531. Be our guest AT THE BAYWOOD IDEA CENTERdivcohomes.comDESIGN-BUILD: A modern universal design approach Five decades in the making, Universal Design is one of the most important concepts in modern architectural theory and practice. According to The Center for Universal Design, the term means creating spaces that meet the needs of all people young and old, able and disabled. From the arrangement of the rooms to the choice of colors, many details go into the creation of accessible spaces. Traditional architecture tends to focus on accessibility for people with disabilities, but Universal Design is the philosophy behind accessibility. Like any successful idea, Universal Design has evolved and improved. Today, DIVCO Custom Homes is at its forefront, introducing clients to the latest luxury residential solutions for their current generational needs and allowing them to plan decades ahead. DIVCO has always prided itself on staying at the cutting edge of design and construction, said Alan Foster, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for DIVCO Homes. One of the things we have been most excited about over the past few years is expanding our DESIGN-BUILD philosophy to a new level, recognizing the importance of Universal Design, a way of maximizing home access and livability for everyone, regardless of age or capabilities. According to Foster, custom home building is one of the most demanding areas of the construction industry and modern Universal Design principles provide solutions to persistent architectural problems. No matter how beautiful, your home will not be comfortable or appealing if you cannot move freely through its rooms and independently perform the basic tasks of life, said Foster. Physical Therapists have a phrase called Activities of Daily Living (ADL). Universal Design addresses this. Designing and building Walker/Wheelchair accessible showers where one can just roll in is basic and simple and benefits everyone. Able-bodied persons have nothing to trip over and those with a special needs re-gain the simple dignity of accessing a shower unaided. DIVCO Custom Homes commitment to the DESIGN-BUILD philosophy means the company designs and builds environments that are usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for large-scale adaptation or specialized design. At DIVCO Custom Homes, we pride ourselves on giving our customers the home that fits their needs perfectly. Our DESIGN-BUILD approach utilizes Universal Design to the full extent of its possibilities. It is not a question of simply lowering counters or of having hallways 4 feet wide. It goes deeper into the architecture of the home. Universal design is not only functional, it can be beautiful. For more information about Universal Design as it relates to DESIGN-BUILD, contact DIVCO Homes New Home Sales Consultant, Jennifer Lofstrand, at 239300-1531 or JLofstrand@ divcohomes.com. Top: Every detail of a DIVCO Custom Home is considered and planned early in the DESIGNBUILD process, then meticulously carried out. Abo ve Left: The final result is not just beautiful, it is also ADA-compliant with spacious, accessible parking. Above Middle: In Universal Design, carefully placed and tastefully-disigned elevator access provides multiple floor usage for all. Above Right: Walker or wheelchair-accessible showers benefit everyone. Able-bodied persons have nothing to trip over, and those with special needs can roll in. ADVERTORIAL

B24 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYLondon Bay Homes Port Royal Estate is a boaters paradiseI can already picture it morning sunrises with coffee in hand ready to take on the day. The home weve been eyeing at 4395 Gordon Drive is finally complete and ready for us to take the final leap. It seems like we had just begun the journey of finding our island paradise when our friends first told us about London Bay Homes. It didnt take long before we scheduled our first visit with Toby Cloutier, sales executive for London Bay Homes. It was still under construction during our first visit but we could already see it taking shape. We were so impressed by Romanza Interior Designs selection of 36-by-36-inch honed stone flooring; sapele, anigre and wenge woods; an extra-large kitchen island with a galley sink, and a wideplank wood floor in the study. And we loved the idea that we could move in right away. No need to pick out furniture or even artwork. Romanza had selected everything, creating a clean-lined modern aesthetic that suits our personalities. The home even has three guest rooms one on the first floor and two on the second and a luxurious wine room that can house our collection. Adding to the resort-style ambience of the home on the second floor is a full morning kitchen amenable to our visiting friends and family staying in the VIP Suite. Our friends can also make themselves at home in the downstairs guest room, with its own private full bathroom and built-in wardrobe, dresser and shelves with wood and lacquer finishes. Jennifer Stevens of Romanza has truly thought of everything for the interiors. The Lighting design paints rooms in different moods, highlights art and complements the airiness of a wood and tempered glass staircase. The home also offers a large great room with two sitting areas for formal or casual gatherings. And, of course, the master suite is just spectacular. Located on the second floor, the room is designed so the bed faces a wall of glass sliding doors showcasing the cove and mangroves. I can imagine it would be the best way to wake up. It also has a large private terrace with a fireplace, and motorized shades that can be controlled from the bed. But the real selling point is the pool and spa overlooking the cove. The first time we saw the view, it took our breath away: The quiet little cove and the beautiful greens of mangroves on Keewaydin Island just across the water. Its right on Cutlass C ove, perf ect for our 29-foot boat and incredibly close to Gordon Pass and the Gulf of Mexico. And on days wed prefer a dip in the ocean without the boat, we can simply go down the street to the beach with our membership eligibility to the Cutlass Cove Club a private beach park with a tiki hut. I think well make our final decision this evening over drinks just down the street at Sea Salt on Third Stret South another perk of living so close to downtown. I really cant wait to enjoy our new life in Naples thanks to London Bay. London Bay Homes newest model at 4395 Gordon Drive in the exclusive Port Royal neighborhood is open for viewing. To jump in on this exclusive downtown opportunity, call Toby Cloutier at 239-280-7367 or visit LondonBay.com.

B26 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYMy choice: A home by London Bay in Caminetto at MediterraIm excited to tell you Ive made my choice. After working with my fabulous Sales Executive Lisa and getting to know how captivating Mediterra is in every respect, Ive purchased a beautiful homesite in the communitys Caminetto neighborhood. London Bay Homes will be building my new home. I fell in love with their Carmela floor plan. Its perfect for me. Ive already worked with Alena and the people at London Bays incredible Selection Studio to select the finishes and options I want. They took the stress out of the selection process and made it a lot of fun. London Bay will be starting construction soon and I should be moving in late next spring. When I first started my home search, Lisa introduced me to Mediterras newest neighborhoods, all of which are being developed and built by London Bay. We actually started in Caminetto. Its the newest of London Bays Lake District neighborhoods. As we drove through Caminetto the first time, I was struck by the way it is so peacefully integrated with its natural surroundings. Its as if life in Caminetto celebrates the neighborhoods exquisite views of glistening sapphire fountained lakes and nature preserves along with short walks to the Parterre Garden, a sanctuary of formal gardens, sitting areas, and a large reflecting pond with waterspouts. Its a place with an intimate feeling that felt comfortable to me. I visited London Bays furnished models in Caminetto, including a Carmela model that sold earlier this season and the two-story Sonoma model. Visiting the models, getting acquainted with the floor plans, and seeing the beautiful views really gave me a sense of what it would be like to live in Caminetto. Just so you know, buildable homesites and the Sonoma model are available for purchase in Caminetto. We could be neighbors. There are so many things about the Carmela floor plan that I absolutely love. It has 3,835 square feet under air. Thats perfect for my husband Fred and me. The plan is one of London Bays new openconcept plans that are presenting a new way of living at Mediterra. The flow of the plan is exactly what we wanted big open spaces, tall pocketing sliding glass doors that open to the outdoor living area, and plenty of room for entertaining both indoors and outdoors. The plan embodies what open-concept living is all about. Well have a spacious great room that flows into a gourmet-inspired kitchen with a butlers pantry and caf. With the cabinetry, countertops, and lighting and plumbing fixtures I picked out at the Selection Studio, the kitchen is going to be beautiful. Im already envisioning sitting at the kitchen island while I enjoy my morning coffee. Everything about the plan feels both elegant and livable. Thats a great combination. We love entertaining and the Carmela plan will give us an ideal setting for welcoming all of our new friends and neighbors. Outside, the pool deck, pool, a big covered terrace with a comfortable seating area, a spacious outdoor dining area, and a fabulous outdoor kitchen will make having company outside fun and easy. Keeping the sliders open on beautiful evenings during season will allow everyone to move back and forth between inside and outside. Thats a neat feature I found in every London Bay floor plans. Theyve created an opportunity for a terrific indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Were planning working with London Bays Acquatico pool and outdoor living design company to create a custom outdoor living area that includes fire features and beautiful lighting in and around the pool. It will be great. If we want to have a more formal dinner, the Carmela plan includes a formal dining room. Dinner parties will be fabulous. Were expecting our friends up north to visit once our new home is completed. Well have two guest bedrooms for visitors and a study in case anyone needs to keep up with how their companies or the market are doing. The master suite is beautiful, and the master bath is huge. The suite opens to the pool patio. Well have two huge walk-in closets. The team at the Selection studio worked with me to pick-out the finishes for a light, bright, modern looking bathroom that will have a luxurious standalone tub and a glass shower enclosure. It will be like having a private retreat. The bathroom will even open to a private yoga garden. I love that. So there you have it. Ive enjoyed working with Lisa through the entire process. Shes introduced me to a lot of people at Mediterra and made sure I had an opportunity to experience the communitys amenities. Theres so much to do golf on two Tom Faziodesigned golf courses, one of the best tennis programs in the country, bocce ball, pickle ball, the fitness center at the Sports Club, the hiking and biking trails, the private Beach Club on Little Hickory Island, world class dining both at the amazing Clubhouse or at the Beach Club, or socializing with wonderful people at the Tavern, an outdoor lounge adjacent to a terrace with tables for al fresco dining and a fire pit. Im still pinching myself. Having a beautiful new home by London Bay and living in a community like Mediterra is going to be wonderful. Have a great week.

The combined MLS system will provide members access to more than 18,000 listings totaling more than $10 billion in inventory. Homebuyers and sellers both will gain increased market exposure. If accepted, MIAAOR will become the Marco Island Area Chapter of NABOR and receive full access to all NABOR member services and benefits. With a merger, Marco Island members involvement in and commitment to the island community and its residents will continue, MIAAOR CEO Shirley English said. This includes participation in the city of Marco Islands Fourth of July fireworks display and the towns annual prayer breakfast, she added. The Marco Island staff and offices will remain in tact, she said. Key benefits of the merger include: Reduced dues for MIAAOR members from $369 per year to $157 per year; Increased educational opportunities, many at no cost; Increased networking opportunities; Shared technologies; A larger referral base; Greater collaboration for community service and public recognition; and Stronger political advocacy. The merger will provide no geographic restrictions for members within the county, Mr. Elliott said. As such, members will not be required to input data into two separate MLS systems, and there will be considerable cost savings for MIAAOR members as their MLS and membership fees will be greatly reduced, he added. NABOR is one of the only boards in the country that offers several important classes for free, Mr. Baranski said. Recently, NABOR started live streaming many of its classes and meetings so members could access training from the comfort of their offices. Marco Island members will be encouraged to take advantage of NABORs extensive training courses. We also offer mediation services at no cost to members, Mr. Baranski said. NABOR CEO Marty Manion said another great advantage of the merger will be stronger political representation in Marco Island. Our government affairs director will attend many of Marco Islands City Hall meetings so we will have a better understanding of their unique real estate matters and, as a result, work to strengthen advocacy and the protection of private property rights for Marco Island residents, Mr. Manion said. To foster adequate representation, Mr. Elliott will join the NABOR board of directors nominating committee. Collaboration amongst the two boards is not a new venture, as many MIAAOR members already volunteer on NABOR committees. For more information, call NABORs Mr. Manion at 597-1666 or Ms. English at MIAAOR at 394-5616. MERGERFrom page 3

The Israel Scouts Friendship Caravan is a singing, dancing and storytelling troupe made up of five girls, five boys and two caravan leaders from all over Israel. The 16and 17-year-old performers went through a highly competitive selection process and were chosen based on their maturity, fluency in English and their performance skills. Founded to bring a message of hope and peace for Israel, the first caravan came to the U.S. in 1973. Since then, the program has grown to three different caravans that travel and perform across the country. Naples audience members will be able to meet and pose for photos with the performers after each of the shows.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 COLLECTORS CORNERNew malls offer new opportunities for collectors scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org The antiques business has been in decline since the turn of the new millennium. But a couple of places in Fort Myers are bucking that trend. First is the Paris Market Antique Mall (2161 McGregor Blvd.; 239-4768817). This mall, set in a strip of former offices, offers room after room of attractively displayed objects from the past two centuries. It struck me that there was a lot of midcentury treasure, and a Drexel Chinoiserie chest from the 1960s has my name on it now, to find the space. I relish an opportunity to visit a retail space in which the dealers have thoughtfully arranged and lighted their merchandise after all, we collectors are an aging group, so proper lighting is essential. I loved the variety of dishes and glassware, and it was a treat to meet the friendly staff, human and otherwise while youre there, be sure to say hi to Paris the Siamese cat. His personality is as large as he is. Give him a scratch from me. Also fun is the new Wildwood Antique Mall (5100 S. Cleveland Ave.; 239-703-7151). Folks whove traveled the state know the name of this mall it has six other locations across the state, from Wildwood to Melbourne, Lakeland to Vero Beach, Eustis to Titusville. Its huge, with a mix of dealers who have space in its other malls, as well as local dealers from Southwest Florida. I saw lots of Fiestaware, both old and new, as well as a mix of furniture, china and dolls. One of the dealers is quite witty, creating steam-punk nightlights from doll heads that are funny and creepy all at the same time. The great thing about clusters of antiques businesses is that there rarely is competition having multiple shops and dealers is a draw for customers. The two new malls are minutes apart, and theyre not far from another favorite, Gannons Antiques & Art (16521 S. Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers; 239-4892211), one of the nicest antiques malls anywhere. I love the selection of art and silver here, and the spacious, well-lit aisles and cases make for easy shopping. Naples has some of the best thrift shopping in the state, and some of its antiques malls also are quite tempting. Ive been shopping at Treasure Island Antiques (950 Central Ave., Naples; 239-434-7684) for the better part of two decades, and always find it to have the right mix of vintage and antiques. In Charlotte County, the Galleria Mall Antiques & Collectibles (5260 Duncan Road, Punta Gorda; 941-3478044) is smaller than some of the stores to the south, but I generally find something in the space, which has lots of china, glassware and linens. Hope to see you next time Im out and about. Happy hunting! Bought: P aris Market Antique Mall, 21 61 M cGregor Blvd., Fort Myers; 239476-8817. Paid: $7.50 The Skinny: My grandmother bought a set of this china in 1962 for her 25th wedding anniversary while visiting friends in Ohio. She thought she was getting a service for eight for $65, but when it arrived at her house, it was a service for 12. But she never could find additional pieces at Maas Brothers, our local department store. Grandma died 10 years ago, and I filled in her set and sent pieces off to a cousin. But I kept the core pieces my grandparents used for everyday. The dinnerware is not worth much on a secondary market, but knowing my grandparents savored meals together on these dishes is priceless.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 17-23, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYWerewolves, vampires and mummies. Oh, boy.Mix a horror story with broad comedy and throw in a little cross-dressing (OK, a lot of cross-dressing) and you have The Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful, a send-up of Victorian melodramas. Playing at Gulfshore Playhouse through May 20, the two-man play is what an Alfred Hitchcock movie might be like if hed had a gay sensibility and been fed a steady diet of Monty Python. Its a crazy concoction of English moors and Egyptian crypts, fluttery maidens, rainy windswept nights and werewolves, vampires and mummies. Dont expect me to explain the plot, because its so convoluted it makes that steep, crooked switchback street in San Francisco look like a straight path in comparison. Initially, were introduced to Jane (Scott Greer), the maid at Mandercrest Estates, and Nicodemus (Jeff Binder), a groundskeeper/handyman who has a wooden leg. We learn theres a new lady of the manor, Lady Enid (also Mr. Binder), whos recently married the widowed Lord Edgar (Mr. Greer again). But Lord Edgar still carries a torch for his dead wife, Miss Irma. In fact, a large portrait of Irma hangs above the mantle, and a never-extinguished candle flickers in front of it, in tribute. To explain any more would be like explaining a soap opera with all its twists and turns, betrayals and ludicrous plot changes. Plus, I confess, there was a point where I stopped being able to follow what was happening. You have to be willing to break from reality to enjoy this play, because it piles ridiculousness upon ridiculousness. In fact, its ridiculous to the nth degree. If thats not your cup of tea, this might not be the show for you. But if you revel in such silliness, be sure to see the Gulfshore Playhouse production. This is, by my calculations, the fourth time this play has been staged locally, and this production is one of the more sophisticated ones. In fact, I liked it even before the curtain rose. Scenic designer David Arsenault has captured the era perfectly with a red curtain topped with scallops of gold and turquoise and gold tassels. You feel as if youre in a theater in Victorian times. Lighting designer Jimmy Lawlor and sound designer John Kiselica also add to the mood, the former providing mysterious shadows and the latter ominous music and humorous sound effects. In fact, there are more than 400 sound cues in this play. Many of them add foreshadowing, while others emphasize a comedic moment. As Lady Enid, Mr. Binder places the back of his hand to his forehead in a highly dramatized display of despair and flits about the stage, enveloped in voluminous flouncy dresses. Mr. Greer, as the maid, Jane, is buxom and solid, and constantly fighting off Nicodemus advances. The two actors change characters throughout the play, rushing offstage to change costume and return as someone else entirely, only to have to exit in order to change back into a previous character. Mr. Binders Nicodemus is gruff and scowling, hobbling about on his wooden leg. But it is in the Egyptian scenes where hes best. With his kohl-tinged eyes and fez, he disappears into his role as a guide in Egypt, leading Lord Edgar to a sealed tomb. He is also quite spectacular as a disco-dancing mummy. (Kudos to costume designer Robin L. McGee for the Madonna-inspired costume.) For the most part, Mr. Greer switches back and forth between playing the lord of the house and its maid. At one point, he (as Lord Edgar) and Mr. Binder (as Lady Enid) get into a clinch and say each others names repeatedly, a verbal display of a sexual encounter. The humor is broad this is a farce, after all and the action intentionally over-the-top melodramatic. (The play was written by Charles Ludlam and first produced by his Ridiculous Theatrical Company off-off-Broadway in 1984.) The list of things Irma Vep spoofs includes the Hitchcock film Rebecca, Jane Eyre, various vampire and werewolf movies and, I believe, Edgar Allan Poe and Shakespeare. Director Kristen Coury throws in the whole megillah of comedic tricks here, with no joke or sight gag too silly or obvious. If you dont laugh at one, youll laugh at the next three or four that come along. And she has two prime comedic actors who willingly throw themselves wholeheartedly into their roles. If anything and I realize this is a strange thing to complain about the actors are almost too good, too perfect in their roles. I never had the sense that they might not make their costume change in time, or that the wheels were in danger of falling off this thing. To me, that wouldve added to the humor. If you dislike farce, or are allergic to wackiness, this isnt your show. But if you thrive on camp and are in desperate need of some silliness, a ticket to Irma Vep is exactly what you should get. At one point in the middle of all this craziness, Lady Enid declares, Somehow, it just doesnt make sense! We totally agree. But what fine nonsense it is.

Though experts still debate whether Singers should officially be classified as a wild or domestic species, and the change in status for practical purposes may simply mean acquiring a license or permit for ownership, everyone agrees these animals are something special. A species native to the New Guinea Highlands on the island of New Guinea and dating to the Stone Age, they are beloved by a small number of owners across the United States who appreciate their intelligent personalities and unique vocal expression, which has been compared to a cross between wolves howling and whale song.

BEACH BURGER CONTRACT BRIDGEKeep your eye on the ballBY STEVE BECKERA declarer occasionally becomes so engrossed with trying to make the maximum number of tricks in a particular suit that he loses sight of the far more important goal of making the contract. For example, take this deal where West leads a low club against three notrump. Declarer plays low from dummy, losing to the king, whereupon East shifts to the ten of hearts. It does not matter what South does on this trick the damage has already been done. His ace of hearts is forced out, and whenever South gets around to leading diamonds, East takes the ace and continues hearts to put the contract down one. Declarer winds up losing a diamond, a club and three hearts. South can make the contract very easily by taking the ace of clubs at trick one and immediately establishing four diamond tricks. The most he can then lose against any distribution of the cards is the ace of diamonds and three clubs. Going up with the ace of clubs at trick one should not be a hard play to make, since nine tricks are then certain. Nevertheless, many declarers would automatically play low from dummy on the opening trick without giving the matter much thought. The more cautious declarers would not risk losing the contract in order to try to gain an extra club trick or two by playing low from dummy. Rather, they would recognize that the contract was assured if they put up the ace, and would proceed accordingly.

FILM CAPSULESGodard, Mon Amour (Louis Garrel, Stacy Martin, Berenice Bejo) The late s personal life of famed French director Jean-Luc Godard (Garrel), including his marriage to a young actress (Martin) and social activism, is chronicled in this nudity-filled drama. Director Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) has crafted the most unflattering homage to a great director that one could imagine, to the point that Godard is easily the least likeable character in the film. As a result, theres not much to enjoy. Rated R.RBG (Ruth Bader Ginbsurg, Gloria Steinem, Bill Clinton) The life and career of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg takes center stage in this revealing tell-all documentary. We learn about RBG both personally and professionally, and by the end its hard to not have immense respect for her accomplishments. Rated PG. Avengers: 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 selfesteem (Schumer) bangs her head and now views herself as beautiful even though she looks the same to the rest of the world. Its got a great message and will be perfect 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, U.S. Sen. 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 it happened 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.

YesFear and excitement pervade ones emotions entering Deadpool 2. The 2016 original was so brash, hilarious and enjoyable that itd be easy for its sequel to try too hard (think Anchorman 2), which would suck all the fun out of it. Thankfully, Deadpool 2 is as vulgar, self-aware and outrageous as we expect. Its also bigger and better than its predecessor in a variety of ways, with one notable exception: They bungled the villain. Director David Leitchs (Atomic Blonde) film begins with Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) more righteous than ever, slaying bad guys all over the world. Hes still happy with Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), and theyre planning to have a child. Yep, things couldnt be better for our favorite superhero who insists hes not a superhero. But then something bad happens and sends Deadpool into a horrible tailspin. Ordinarily the main villain of this type of movie would commit this atrocity, thereby providing the hero motivation for revenge. But Cable (Josh Brolin, who also played Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War) has nothing to do with this. In fact, Cable has nothing to do with the movie for far too long. He appears early on in an out of context scene, looks angry, and vanishes. Literally. Then nothing from him for a half hour, to the point that the mind starts to wonder who the random guy in the burned-out apartment was, and what he has to do with anything. Quite a bit, it turns out, but you dont learn his motivation until the beginning of the third act, which is far too late. All we know before then is that hes a super soldier from the future who wants to kill a 14-year-old mutant named Russell (Julian Dennison). You simply cannot structure a villains arc in this way and have it work dramatically too much is unsaid for too long, rendering the narrative uneven. Its also unfair to Brolin, who handles the role well in spite of the filmmakers doing him no favors. As for Deadpool, he loses all sense of purpose and wants to die, but literally cant. Hes convinced to join the X-Men as a trainee, and its on his first mission that he meets Russell. Although he doesnt really like Russell, Deadpool nonetheless does what he can to protect him, which becomes relevant once Cable shows up wanting to kill the young mutant. The plot imbalance is especially a shame given that the rest of Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Reynolds script is a doozy, full of funny pop culture references (hint: make sure you know what dubstep is before you go) and a knowing embrace of other comic book movies, including multiple shots at the Avengers. And there are cameos. Theyre quick, but super cool. Deadpool 2 is both self-aware and an all-out fantasy, with a lead character who literally talks to the audience at the same time he does things that could only happen in a movie. The end effect is that it draws viewers in, essentially making us part of the unrealistic world in which the movie plays out. And isnt this kind of escapism why we go to summer movies? dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Stay for the credits to enjoy one of the lms biggest laughs.Did you know?

The DAmicos presence is definitely not gone from downtown Naples, however. The Continental is a Prohibition-era inspired restaurant, complete with oldschool craft cocktails and a glamorous vibe, especially on the outdoor patio with private terraces and vine-covered tables just steps away from Third Street. If youre on the lookout for an affordable night downtown, The Continental offers an early dining menu from 5-6 p.m. (and $7 craft cocktails from 3-6 p.m.). Steak and lobster, which my companion ordered, is one of several mouthwatering options for early diners; I chose the beef tenderloin brochettes. The tenderloins were cooked to perfection, and the accompanying potato gratin was a perfect blend of creamy and crispy. An underrated aspect of any dish is how the vegetables are cooked; the asparagus did not disappoint. One More Thing: The early menu comes with an elaborate Caesar salad or beautifully dressed continental salad with tomato, cucumber and ricotta. My companion and I tried one of each and were not disappointed. The greens were fresh, and the croutons on the Caesar sealed the deal for me. Also, if you have a sweet tooth, you must try the Key lime blackberry pie for dessert. -Robbie Spencer firstname.lastname@example.org ROBBIE SPENCER / FLORIDA WEEKLY

ESCARGOT TOO PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries from previous restaurant reviews: Bonita Brunch, 26381 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 405-7415 When you open the menu, the numbers are overwhelming: 25 omelets, six eggs benedicts, five burritos, six skillets. And thats just the breakfast menu. The lunch list is equally staggering: 14 salads, 13 wraps and stuffed pitas, eight sandwiches, 15 burgers and melts. We sampled just a fraction of the all-encompassing menu, including an impressive crab eggs benny and a platesized waffle smeared with Nutella. A corned beef hash was less noteworthy, but all of our food clearly was made to order with fresh, quality ingredients and served in generous portions. Service is efficient and exceedingly warm. Soft drinks only. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2017 Escargot 41, Park Shore Plaza, 4339 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 793-5000 Sold by its founder, Patrick Fevrier, to current owner Stoyan Panayotov a couple of years back, this cozy little restaurant retains its French menu, charm and most of its many snail appetizers. I can recommend the Fricassee 41 snails in scrambled eggs, tomatoes and herbs with a puff pastry top as well as the sea-salt-cured hickory smoked salmon coated in coffee, two long-time signature dishes. The house pate, a country style studded with pepper, is a winner, too. Entrees of tournedos lesdiguiere, beef tenderloin in a marsala mushroom sauce, and a flaky, bronzino in an elegant almond beurre meuniere sauce were first rate. The duck, however, was disappointing, as the skin as not crisp as described on the menu and somewhat fatty. A chocolate souffl was right on point while the raspberry version seemed less vibrant. Service was vigilant throughout the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2017 Incas Kitchen, Pavilion Shopping Center, 8955 T amiami Trail N., Naples; 631-5954 Chef/owner Rafael Rottiers Peruvian cuisine beguiled me from the time he opened his first Incas in a hole-inthe-wall in Golden Gate Estates and it continues to lure me back now that his upscale spot at the Pavilion matches his beautiful well-executed food. Start with a pisco sour and then try any of the excellent versions of ceviche Ive not found one I didnt like. The tiradito and sushi are great starters, too, as are the scallops on the half shell topped with melted Parmesan cheese. The traditional tacu tacu with boneless ribeye is a great choice for beef lovers, consisting of a 12-ounce steak and Peruvian rice and lentils, served with plantains and salsa criolla, marinated red onions and peppers that added crunch and flavor. The Inca macho fish, a signature dish, consists of grilled corvina topped with assorted shellfish and a creamy yellow pepper sauce and is also a good choice. Dont miss dessert here, especially if you like caramel. Pick something with lucama, a Peruvian fruit that tastes like caramel and that Mr. Rottiers transforms into delectable sweets. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2017 Mediterrano, 336 13th Ave. S., Naples; 261-7498 There arent many places in which the owner himself greets and seats you but thats the level of hospitality found at this lovely little restaurant filled with soothing aquamarine hues that bring to mind the beauty of the Mediterranean waters. I enjoyed a refreshing mojito sangria but theres an extensive wine list from which to choose. Warm pita triangles come with balsamic reduction, sundried tomato butter and olive oil as a starter. Try not to gorge. An appetizer of grilled octopus with baby spinach, preserved lemon, roasted garlic cloves, heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika was smoky and delicious. Lamb keftedes and falafel was a classic and hearty pairing that Id recommend two share. The cioppino was bountiful, full of sea bass, mussels, shrimp and clams in a roasted Roma tomato sauce. Mediterranean sea bass arrived in a bamboo steamer filled with Moroccan spices, lavender, golden raisins and pomegranate seeds. It was the star of the meal. A limoncello parfait, a potent mix of icy lemon and soothing vanilla, was a refreshing end to the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016True Food Kitchen, Waterside Shops, 5375 Tamiami Trail, Naples; 431-4580 While I dont typically review chain restaurants, this one warrants making an exception for its healthy but hugely appealing menu, beautiful sun-washed dining room, immaculate open kitchen and knowledgeable, friendly staff. Based on Dr. Andrew Weils anti-inflammatory diet, the menu is full of imaginative items at reasonable prices that will thrill vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free diners and confirmed carnivores equally. Dont miss the cauliflower in harissa tahini, medjool dates, dill, mint and pistachios. You will never look at cauliflower the same way again. Other winners included: a wild mushroom pizza, grass-fed steak tacos, lasagna Bolognese with house-made chicken sausage and Scottish steelhead with smoked onion farro. A dessert of coconut and chia seed flan with caramel sauce, blueberries and blackberries tasted indulgent and satisfying. So did a Thai grapefruit martini and a ginger margarita.

Amy Peters, food services director at David Lawrence Center, has her work cut out for her in providing nourishing meals to patients in recovery and also creating outreach initiatives that benefit the entire community. Read on to see how Ms. Peters manages nutrition and budgets to get patients back on their feet and on the road to robust health. Q: Tell us about your culinary background. A: I started working when I was 13 years old in restaurants and have been in them ever since. I have owned two catering restaurants and been a manager in restaurants most of my adult life. I started managing food services for another local recovery center in 2006 and knew I really liked helping people with the food I created. Even though that wasnt my final destination in my career, it was part of my journey to David Lawrence Center, where I am extremely happy. I believe that if you have a passion for something, it isnt a job. I have been blessed to be able to do what I love and enjoy my career. Q: In providing meals for the centers inpatient and residential programs, which elements of nutrition do you emphasize to assist in patients physical and emotional recovery? A: Our clients needs always come first. We are a sugar-free campus so that their blood sugar levels stay low. We stick to a heart-healthy diet: low sodium, low-fat protein and a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of our clients have special dietary needs, such as diabetes, various allergies, vegan/vegetarian, religious needs and many other special cases that are on a client-by-client basis. We want to make sure the client has everything they need while they are here so they can focus on their treatment while we focus on their total health and wellness. Q: What role do you think food plays in the patients perspective on treatment? A: I think the food plays a very important role in the patients perspective on their treatment while they reside with us. When they come to David Lawrence Center, they come to recover and heal. If the food can be comforting and make them feel good, that can play a huge role in their recovery. That is always my ultimate goal, and I strive to instill that in my staff as well. Also, clients can be here on their birthday or on a holiday such as Christmas or Thanksgiving. We always make meals extra special on those days because we realize it would be tough to be in treatment on a special day like that without friends or family to celebrate with you. Q: David Lawrence Center just earned its Blue Zones certification. How does that shape your menus and options for patients? A: The clients always have a few Blue Zones options when they order their meals. We have amazing salads and soups that are made fresh every day. We use a lot of whole grain pastas and breads, fresh beans, feta cheese, nuts, quinoa, lean meat, fresh vegetables and fresh fruit when preparing many of the daily meals, salads, snacks, soups and sandwiches. Many of the salad dressings are also made from scratch. Q: How is preparing staff meals different than cooking for patients? A: Staff meals are often the same as our client meals, especially on days when our treatment beds are full and we are extremely busy. I do, however, get a tad more creative with staff meals because I dont have to stick to a heart-healthy diet thats on a four-week cycle. Ill do homemade calzones, Cuban sandwiches, chimichangas with fresh guacamole, chicken cordon bleu with twice-baked potatoes, quesadillas, garlic parmesan chicken wings I also do a salad of the week that is usually Blue Zones-inspired. This is where I use my creative side. Q: Harry Chapin Food Bank donates a lot of food to David Lawrence Center. How does that affect your meal planning and budget? A: Harry Chapin Food Bank has been such a huge blessing to us. I cant even tell you how grateful I am to have their weekly donations. Our meal planning isnt really affected, as we stick to a four-week cycle menu and just plug in the donations that we get from Harry Chapin for the meals and snacks we already have planned out. It works out perfectly, because what Harry Chapin offers and what we need are one in the same. We greatly appreciate any donations that we get, whether it be monetary or food. Being a not-for-profit, every donation helps. Q: Your role extends beyond feeding the denizens of the center, like maintaining a relationship with Harry Chapin Food Bank, holding cooking classes for patients and the outside community and catering functions for the center. How do you approach these responsibilities in a way that conveys David Lawrence Centers commitment to community health? A: No matter what function I am catering or class that I am teaching, I always try to incorporate healthy options. In all of my catering events, I keep in mind that people have varied tastes and diets. This is sometimes a challenge, but I feel my team and I make it work. When I teach a class for the Crossroads residential rehab clients, I show them foods like quinoa, flax seed, whole grains, veggies, fruits, Greek yogurt and all kinds of beans. I show them how these foods can taste good if made the right way with simple spices like cumin, dill, garlic, onion powder, cayenne and even non-caloric sweeteners like stevia. Q: What are you particularly proud of? A: I am proud of overcoming many obstacles in my life and persevering on this journey as an honest, kind, hardworking, generous person with a good heart who loves to cook and bake. That includes raising three wonderful children as a single mom and always being there for them and providing for them. I am very proud of the job I do at David Lawrence Center every day, helping people and feeding them great, healthy food that tastes amazing. Q: Who or what are your greatest culinary influences? A: My family. I loved watching my grandmother, great-grandmother and my father cook and bake. My dad, who recently passed away, was my biggest culinary influence. He worked so hard six days a week and would spend his one day off cooking all day, making homemade spaghetti sauce or something he had been dreaming up all week. I would sit on the counter and watch him. Cooking was his way of relaxing from his hard week. Having worked in this field since I was 13 in many different restaurants, everyone has taught me something. Good or bad, I learned something. Q: Tell us about one of your favorite culinary experiences. A: The David Lawrence Center has been the best place I have ever worked in my life. I get the best of both worlds. I get an opportunity to use both of my passions: to help people and use my culinary skills and creative side to cook and bake. Q: What are your favorite culinary resources (books, blogs, etc.)? How do you keep your dishes relevant? A: I am a huge fan of the internet and researching when I have an idea. I usually take something I see or read about and make it mine by adding other ingredients. Even old-school recipes can be updated with new spices and fun ingredients. I have a huge collection of old cookbooks and my Grams old recipes. I also have learned from everyone else, too, past and present. Im not a huge fan of TV cooking shows because its just not real life in a kitchen. Anyone who has been in one knows what I mean. I do like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, though. Thats my kind of cooking. Finally, my staff is very diverse and its fun to see how they create dishes from their family recipes as well. I teach them, but I love to learn from them, too.
