MYERS11750 S CLEVELAND AVE 239.275.3968 BRING YOUR FLORIDA LIFESTYLE HOME COMMENTARYThe living bluesI knew a man in a Mississippi town who watched his mother shoot his father and lay a bad man down.A sharecropper working cotton for a white farmer in the mid-1930s, his father had beaten up his mother one time too many, he recalled. She used a .38 pistol and buried him in the corner of a farm field.That was the black experience in America for Willy Foster, a fine blues harmonica player who grew up before civil rights was even a scent on the wind. He wore patent-leather shoes as black as obsidian, like him, and pointed to his foot to explain the blues. Thats the blues, he said, tapping out a rhythm like a distance runners pulse, less than 60 beats a minute, built for the long haul. Mr. Foster used a 10-hole harp to run a slow train up that track into a future he never saw. What once happened is not through happening, as so many people know: the people who insist on celebrating statues of Robert E. Lee or Stonewall Jackson in public places, for example. Or the people who created the new National Monument for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Ala., with 800 hanging steel columns, each inscribed with the name of an American county and the victims lynched there. The sound of that history is blue and personal, a music born in hard living out of Southern fields and hills, in heat and deprivation, from slavery and segregation a music shaded in field chants and gospel hymns and old fiddle tunes creased with living, loving, leaving and dying. Hot and haunted, blues worked its way up rivers and railroads, up dirt or asphalt ribbons on busses bouncing into northern cities, finally swelling into our national consciousness in the 1960s. White folks hear the blues come out, but they dont know how it got there, observed the famous bluesman Son House. So my 16-year-old son, Nash, explained, in a year-end school paper a teacher said he wouldnt have time to read. For a year now hes been listening mostly to Hill Country blues, along with American music by such white masters as the late finger-style guitarist John Fahey. The blues has been loved, loathed and misunderstood since its beginning in American culture, just like the African Americans who first played it, Nash wrote. The blues is every living persons music, a music as organic and raw as the emotions behind it; and thanks (in part) to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, its available for our enjoyment today. Aint that the truth. Taking on many forms, the blues was played by dark geniuses like Skip James, who shaped and melded the blues into something far more than music, playing sounds that incited raw dread, anguish, and suffering, or a void of any emotion whatsoever. The few who could truly uncork the visceral spring were often forgotten, cast aside into the shadows, until they werent. It happened this way, Nash said: As the movement picked up momentum, a few intrepid whites ventured into the deep South, a territory unfamiliar for many of them, to locate and rediscover the once-great bluesmen of the 1930s. No one knew their whereabouts, or even if they were still in the land of the living, but the hunt began regardless, fueled by a fervent love for the sound, and the promise of monetary gain if the bluesmen would play under their record labels. Adventurers like musicologist Alan Lomax beginning in 1936 and John Fahey in the 1960s, were in the forefront of the search. Sexually abused by his father, Mr. Fahey first began to hear the music, adopted by white artists, as a suburban, Washington, D.C., teenager. Eventually he found Skip James battered but still vibrant, in a hospital. I think Faheys deep connection and instant recognition of what the blues really is, was because of the terrible things he dealt with as a young child, Nash said, after reading Mr. Faheys autobiographical account. I believe he could hear some of the struggle and pain he felt on a nearly daily basis as a boy pouring forth from the music, and instantly developed a connection with it. Meanwhile, the ongoing struggle for civil rights continued to rage in mainstream America. The Vietnam War continued. Many young white Americans became upset and disillusioned with the things the established system had to offer, like Jim Crow, and the draft. They began to seek progressive change by the side of their black brothers and sisters. Such a shift in the cultural paradigm, Nash suggested, brought a much greater attention to the original artists than they had ever before dreamed of. Rock bands and the era of protest had a far-reaching effect that shined a light on the old men who were to thank for this new, and rapidly growing music. Muddy Waters once famously said, the Blues had a baby, and they named it Rock n Roll. So much of what made the civil rights movement successful allowed the blues to make its return. As America shucked off an old shell of bigotry and stupidity, people became more comfortable with the idea of black culture. As a result, their priceless material gushed into the lives of Americans who had been previously deprived of it, all at once. Big Bill Broonzys 1922 song, This Train, summed it up for Nash, and for me, too: This train, you know, dont fit no transportation, no Jim Crow, and no discrimination, oh, this train, is bound for glory. This train dont care if youre white or black on this train, oh, this train is bound for glory. Lets hope it gets there. roger

Now imagine receiving the same diagnosis, and then learning a promising new treatment exists that could save your life but you cant get access to it thanks to governmental obstacles. That is the nightmare that befell Andrea Sloan, an Austin lobbyist who gave up her job at a high-priced law firm to advocate for victims of domestic violence. In 2007, Sloan was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and for more than six years tried every Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment for her disease. All failed. With Sloans health rapidly deteriorating, her doctor at MD Anderson Cancer Center told her she had one last hope: a new drug that inhibits DNA repair in cancer cells, which had shown great promise in clinical trials with patients who had her specific genetic mutation. But Sloan did not qualify for a clinical trial. And while the drug had passed safety trials, it was not yet approved by the FDA. She would have to seek compassionate use. After months of lobbying (and being turned down by one manufacturer), she finally convinced another to grant her access. She was ready to begin treatment, but then she hit a deadly roadblock: Before she could obtain the drug her physician recommended and that a manufacturer was willing to provide, she had to beg the FDA for approval. Her doctor was forced to spend around 100 hours filling out FDA paperwork (a requirement that has since been streamlined, thanks to public pressure). Then, the FDA took 24 days to review the application. As Sloan waited, her health deteriorated further. In an interview for the book The Right to Try: How the Federal Government Prevents Americans from Getting the Lifesaving Treatments They Need, which I co-wrote, Sloans best friend Michelle Wittenberg told me about Sloans anguish as she waited on the green light from Washington. She would say, Michelle, whats going on? Whats the delay? The drug companys agreed to give it, why is it taking so long? When the FDA finally relented, the drug worked. Scans showed it beating back her cancer. But it was too late. Shortly after getting the scans, Sloan came down with pneumonia. Thirteen days later, she died. The delay in getting that drug that was working killed her, Wittenberg said, The extra month tacked on because of the FDA process? Too long. Wittenberg formed Andis Army to lobby the Texas state legislature to pass a Right to Try law that would grant those in Texas with terminal illnesses (and who have exhausted all FDA-approved treatments) access to investigational drugs so long as they have been proven safe in clinical trials, are part of the FDAs ongoing evaluation process and the company developing the medication is willing to make it available. In 2015, Gov. Greg Abbott signed the Andrea Sloan Right to Try Act into law. Today, 40 states have passed similar laws. President Trump has signed a national Right to Try Act into law. In the states, Right to Try has not been a partisan issue. In most instances, it passed without a single dissenting vote. The issue brought together politicians who never worked together on any other issue. In Illinois, for example, the bill was co-sponsored by state Sen. Mike Connelly, a socially conservative Republican, and state Rep. Greg Harris, a liberal Democrat who is HIV-positive. As Connelly told me, This is the first bill Ive ever encountered that is both pro-life and pro-choice. It gives people the freedom to choose to fight for their life. But, sadly, this spirit of bipartisanship did not translate to Washington. Only 22 House Democrats voted for the final bill that Trump will sign. In August, a version introduced by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., passed the Senate by unanimous consent, but stalled in the House, which eventually passed a more limited bill from Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore. Last week, Senate Republicans tried to accommodate Democratic objections by bringing up the Walden bill for a vote, but Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer blocked it from coming to the floor. So the House passed the Johnson version, with Democrats nearly united in opposition. In other words, Democrats in Washington managed to take an issue that unified thousands of legislators from both parties in 40 states, and turned it into a divisive, party-line vote. Thanks to Trump, Americans facing terminal diagnoses will now have a new chance at life. How tragic and pathetic that Democrats refused to join him in making that happen. The big hysteriaOne of the rules of our politics is that its permissible to accuse the Trump administration of anything, and the claim that it lost 1,475 migrant children fits the bill. It has lit up social media and made the debate over a new Trump policy of zero tolerance at the border even more hysterical than it would be otherwise. The 1,475 factoid makes it sound as though the Trump administration had these children in its custody and then one day couldnt find them. Instead, Health and Human Services had placed them, along with thousands of others who showed up at the border as unaccompanied children, with sponsors in the United States, usually parents or close relatives. HHS recently added 30-day follow-up phone calls to the longstanding program. At the end of last year, HHS called 7,635 sponsors and couldnt reach 1,475 of them. Since many of the sponsors are illegal immigrants themselves who dont want to be in contact with authorities, this isnt surprising. But this misleading story has been spun into a tale of shocking Trump administration callousness and used as a hammer against his border policy. Prior to 2011, almost all illegal aliens at the border were single adult males, overwhelmingly from Mexico. Now, 40 percent of illegal aliens at the border are families and children, and almost half from Central America. This presents challenges we havent faced before, made all the worse by gaping loopholes in the law. The past policy was to allow adults traveling with children into the country. Hoping to stem the flow which briefly diminished after his election, before increasing again Trump now wants to prosecute all adults. This necessitates, at least briefly, the separation of adults and children. The U.S. Marshalls take custody of the adults, while the children are held by HHS. The prosecution of an adult for illegal entry usually happens quickly. Then, if the adult wants to return home, he or she is reunited with the child and sent back together. Where it gets more complicated is if a migrant claims asylum. The Trump administration wants to hold migrants pending adjudication of their cases; if they are released, there is a good chance they will abscond. But even if the cases are handled quickly i.e., in a couple of months the government has to release the children sooner thanks to a 20-year-old consent decree and associated legal rulings. Its just one of the distortions that makes a rational policy at the border impossible. Trump is right to want to get a handle on the border. According to the Justice Department, over the past 2 years, more than 250,000 migrants who came here as unaccompanied children or part of a family group have been released into the country. But separating parents and children at the border is a significant downside of the Trump policy. Congress can help by fixing the consent decree that makes it impossible to detain kids, even if they are with their parents, and by spending more on detention space. Theres no reason we cant handle these cases quickly and humanely, except for our insanely self-sabotaging immigration system.

More than 400 wear orange events took place around the country on June 2 and 3, which were tracked on the website. Local officials from many majors Floridian cities, including Naples, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and others, joined more than 250 mayors nationwide participating in the wear orange campaign this year.Moms Demand Action held the Naples event at Lowdermilk Park, organized by Naples leader Kate Cunningham, MDA education lead Tina Ottman, Collier Students for Change organizer Emma Sullivan and Esther Flannery, a gun violence survivor. The idea of wearing orange was, in part, inspired by Nza-Ari Khepra, founder of Project Orange Tree. Five years ago, a group of friends and I came together to create Project Orange Tree to honor our dear friend Hadiya and the countless others who have been affected by gun violence, said Nza-Ari Khepra. Since then, it has truly been an honor to watch this movement continually grow and touch every corner of our country with events and landmark lightings. This year, Wear Orange reminds us that we are an unstoppable force that is well on its way to creating an America that will be free of gun violence. Orange is the color that Hadiya Pendletons friends wore in her honor after she was shot and killed in Chicago at the age of 15 just one week after performing at President Barack Obamas second inaugural parade in 2013.

But what about your soft skills or your emotional intelligence? How do they impact your ability to be successful? Lets define what is meant by soft skills. Employers not only look for the skills needed to do the job (hard skills), they are also searching for professionals who have soft skills like problem solving, teamwork and communication. Emotional intelligence, or EQ, is defined as the capacity to be aware of, control and express ones emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. These two skills sets are critical for career success. When our employees undergo an annual review, their hard skills are evaluated, but just as important are the soft skills. In our annual reviews, the majority of the areas are within the area of soft skills and EQ. Categories in our review form are in the first section called critical success factors. Areas that employees are evaluated on include approachability and responsiveness. In this area we are looking at their willingness to help, a positive attitude, a high level of dedication and meeting expectations. In our case, the customers are our students. We also evaluate our employees on ethics and values with how they embrace differences in others and professionalism. The emphasis here is on the importance of understanding and respecting each others view of the world, personalities and working styles. In the area of communication, we evaluate our employees on their abilities to read, write, speak and listen effectively, and to successfully communicate and collaborate with BRONSTEIN

As a college, critical thinking is something we emphasize to our students and employees. We evaluate employees by looking at how well they demonstrate the skills necessary for analysis, provide an intellectual atmosphere conducive to the stimulation and interchange of ideas, make decisions in a timely manner and can look at situations and make recommendations for improvement. In the area of work effectiveness, were looking at how well our employees demonstrate the skills and use of technology needed to collect, verify, document and organize information from a variety of sources. How well do they understand their job duties, the college processes and related work? Are they dependable when it comes to getting their work done not only accurately but on time? Can they adapt to changing goals and work requirements? Our last area for evaluation is leadership. How well can they manage conflict? How much do they invest in others to assist them to reach their potential? For us, this can mean not only with colleagues, but also the students we serve. Another important area is fiscal accountability. Not all of our employees are evaluated in this area, but for those who are, we look for effective and efficient use of financial resources while also following our policies and procedures. Whether you are looking for a job, or wanting to advance in your current position, its important to keep in mind how soft skills and EQ can help you. They can make or break your career goals.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 7-13, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYdecades. Or until they cant. Sometimes they want professional gardeners like Mr. Hecker and others to mount them in public places where a lot of people can admire their whimsical majesty. A lot of these were donated to us when they get too big and people want to see them, still, explained Matt Boyson, head horticulturist at Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County. Our favorite way of mounting them is in the crotches of trees, but we have one hanging from a chain they love our climate. Hes not the only one who takes donations. They call us and say, Its getting too big. Can you take it for the Estates so we can still come and see it? said Debbie Hughes, horticulturist at the world-renowned Edison-Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers. The Edison-Ford Estates has often accommodated such requests, which means visitors from Europe, Asia and the Americas have all been startled and awed by staghorn ferns, as well as the folks living a block away in Thomas Edisons old neighborhood. Little old ladies would call you all the time and say, Honey, can you come get my staghorn fern? Its about to pull my tree over, recalled Mr. Hecker, now the executive director of Everglades Wonder Gardens in Bonita Springs, where he has a number of venerable plants as big as cows. Youd have to get a truck, a pickup, and have it stationed below (the fern) when you removed it from the tree. Origin, species and careIts a sure bet that staghorn ferns were not part of the vast array of botanic novelties spread out along the Gulf Coast of Florida for Spanish explorers who first arrived about 500 years ago, when they may have seen cypress trees, for example, that still exist to this day, along with flora or fauna no longer in the world. No one seems to know exactly how these spectacular ferns reached the Sunshine State, but one thing is certain: When they did, they thrived. So botanists would define them as invasive exotics, said Mr. Hecker. But invasives that do no seeming hurt to the environment. As epiphytes or air plants, they attach themselves to the bark of trees not to take nutrients from the tree, but from the air, falling debris or from the rain and wind. Especially in the southern half of the peninsula where freezes are infrequent, of extremely short duration or non-existent, and the most common staghorn species, an Australian native called platycerium bifurcatum thrives, a plant hardy enough to endure temperatures that can drop to 30 degrees Fahrenheit, briefly. But in any sharp cool spell anywhere in the state, they should be moved inside, say their keepers. A member of the Polypodiaceae family, staghorns produce two fronds: basal, which cover the roots and some people call shields; and the foliar fronds the big leaves that sometimes contain a soft brown covering on the tips the sporangia. Spores are released to the wind and settle to propagate in the wild. Since few Floridians seem to live in the wild, the ideal planting spot for staghorn ferns is mounted: on a slab of wood, some tree fern fiber or a rock, according to the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences ( Although it does well in shade or partially shaded locations, it cant tolerate low-light conditions without risking disease, the experts say. And it requires only a bit of liquid fertilizer in a 1:1:1 ratio, or even pieces of banana peels occasionally once or twice a year for the fertilizer, and weekly or less for the peels tossed into a big plant along with periodic watering, to grow robust.Big and biggerThey can get heavy over time as much as a couple of hundred pounds, maybe more in the rain, with lengths of 6 feet or more, and 3 feet or more wide. At the Edison-Ford Winter Estates, Ms. Hughes continues to restore damage caused by a rude 2017 visitor named Irma. The hurricane denuded the grounds and destroyed some trees but not the grand old staghorns, capable of living as long as a human. Several remain on the ground waiting for trees to regain the strength to support them, ferns so big that cherry pickers or forklifts will be involved in their resurrections. But not all are down, and summer is their growing season, when fronds turn FERNFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOTom Hecker, executive director of the Everglades Wonder Gardens in Bonita Springs, with four of his favorite staghorn ferns.COURTESY PHOTOAt Sundance Orchids, owners Jacki Garland and Elijah Spurlin have two staghorns shes watched grow since 1989. Staghorn ferns>> Family: Polypodiaceae. Genus: Platycerium. Species: 18 known. >> Leaves: Basil (the layers surrounding the root system, sometimes called shields); Foliar (the more distinct fronds that give Staghorns their name). >> Native habitats: Philippines, Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Australia, Africa, America (one species is a Peruvian native). >> Interesting facts: The ne hairs that cover some leaves protect them from insects and blight. The felt-like brown fuzz on the tips of leaves produce spores that can reproduce the plant, at rst becoming windborne to settle in a new location. They grow to weigh hundreds of pounds and stretch as much as 10 feet across and 8 feet high. >> Most common, and the easiest to grow: Platycerium bifurcatum, native to Australia and New Guinea. This species creates a big pack of pups; the plant eventually becomes very large. >> Longevity: Roughly 70 years for the most long-lived. >> Basic growing conditions: Platycerium bifurcatum is hardy enough to withstand temperatures as low as 30F, if such freezes have a duration of only a few hours or less. They thrive in heat and humidity, with some sun and shade, water on an every-other-day basis or a little less, liquid fertilizer once or twice a year, and a strong hold on some surface. >> Cost in nurseries: from $25 to hundreds of dollars or more. >> Best info: The University of Floridas IFAS Extension service tells you everything you need to grow and enjoy staghorn ferns in, Staghorn Ferns at a Glance. >> Go here: http://edis.ifas.u .edu/mg015 Source: Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida

Im looking at one right now surrounding the whole tree a branch is covered with staghorn growing right on the trunk. It loves it that way. Visitors love it that way, too.The number one question we get is, What IS that? explained Ms. Hughes. Theyre all epiphytic (so-called air plants, taking their nourishment from rain and air). They dont hurt the trees. The whole process just floors me. They call them staghorns, but there are some that arent staghorns in appearance; they look more like lettuce. Theyre beautiful.And big. Although no formal accord exists to recognize the largest staghorn in the world, there are vague claims to the title made from warm American climates, from time to time California, Louisiana, Florida, which may resemble climates in Malayasia, Australia or some other South Pacific locations where staghorn ferns are native. A family living near New Orleans, the Becnels, had half a ton of staghorns in six big plants, according to a 2012 report in The Times Picayune. And a claim with photos by one admirer that a staghorn in Melboune, at the Rossiter House and Museum, may be the biggest in the world a 5-foot by 10-foot monster so large a live oak would no longer support it, so the groundskeepers built a cinderblock platform was quickly questioned by write-ins, in 2011. I have a staghorn fern in my backyard in St. Pete that is bigger than this. It encircles a large pine tree, one woman wrote. Another woman staked a claim to the title and tried to sell hers, at the same time: I actually have one larger and fuller for sale, its very healthy, worth over $3,000, will sell for less, she wrote in Melbourne-Palm-Bay-Living. com. To be sure, these are staghorns to die for. But not to die from, suggests Mr. Hecker. The staff at Everglades Wonder Gardens keeps a close eye on the trees where they hang to insure branches arent about to break and fall on visitors, or on Mr. Hecker. Hes been known to just stand outside under his big beauties grinning out at the world from an obviously happy place. Once, Mr. Hecker considered himself a staghorn fanatic and made an effort to collect all the species in existence, he said which is much easier said than done. I had about 10 or 12 species and the most fascinating I had came from the Andes mountains in Peru its the only one native to the New World. Just like theres only one cactus and one bromeliad native to Africa, because the continents split once. But theres another species he never acquired, to his regret, he admits and neither have many others: Platycerium Alcicoine Madagascar, with less waxy leaves of a richer green and black dots on the shield fronds around the roots Its in a complicated symbiotic relationship with orchids and ants, Mr. Hecker explained. Its from Madagascar. Its the holy grail that no one can grow, easily. They call them Myrmecophyte plants plants evolved to live with ants inside them. But the most common staghorn, the Australian native, is not only one of the biggest, but also the ferns namesake because it projects leaves that resemble the horns or antlers of a stag (some people call it the elkhorn fern as well).Wild and cultivated fernsIn the wild, the experts say, they grow at the tops of trees sometimes 100 feet above the earth, way up in the sun thats in such locations as Malaysia or Madagascar. Here, they appreciate both sun and shade, and when they get large they require chains, sometimes, to keep them in the trees. Theyre a fern, explained Mr. Hecker, so they have spores. The spores are like dust, they float on the wind and have to set in the right place. There are wild populations in Florida. Since their sheer size becomes a serious problem for trees themselves, and also their increasing monetary value in a culture that now seems to treasure them, gardeners who intend to keep them look for solid, safe ways to give them homes. We build these special stands because you cant hang them from trees. People will drive up, back their trucks under them and cut the chains to steal them. Theyre worth hundreds of dollars, explained Jacki Garland. With her partner, Elijah Spurlin, Ms. Garland is co-owner of Sundance Orchids in South Fort Myers, where she offers a wide range of orchids, ferns and bromeliads, among others. People such as Ms. Garland dont just have staghorn ferns; they also have staghorn fern stories. Ive been watching two of these grow since 1989 they were my old neighbors, she said. My neighbor gave it to a neighbor and when that neighbor moved, she gave it to somebody else, who gave it to me, Ms. Garland explained. Theyre like children, but they dont talk back.Ms. Garland had another neighbor with a rare variety shed never seen, who wouldnt share it with her. (Its easy to take a pup from a big plant and give it away or mount it and sell it, the experts say.) I offered to buy a piece, and she wouldnt sell it to me, Ms. Garland said. But when she passed away, she left it in her will for me to have. People are like that about their staghorns, sometimes. Which is why you can see that one, too, at Sundance Orchids.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationLoud wind and hail attacked the house. Branches crashed onto the roof and deck. The power flashed on and off. Tim became hyperalert, trembling and glassy-eyed. Nothing Christie said got through to him. He bolted off the bed, tore through the house and ran outside. Christie found him huddled in a corner of the yard, behind some trees, as far away from the house as he could get. She had to crawl on the ground to reach him and then wrapped him in her coat and carried him back to the house. I dried him off with a towel, put him in my bed, wrapped him in blankets and gave him some alprazolam and trazodone that I had. He huddled against me while I waited for the drugs to kick in. It was hours. It was awful. Tim, a silken windhound who was 7 years old when his fear began, belongs to Christie Keith of Davisburg, Michigan. He had come to live with her from eastern Washington, where thunderstorms are uncommon.Storm fear factsStorm phobias like Tims are common in dogs and can occur in cats as well. Dogs, however, are more likely to exhibit fear in a destructive or dangerous way, such as Tims escape from the house through a dog door. Not every animal who lives in thunderstorm-prone areas becomes fearful of them, but those who do may have heredity to blame. Some have a genetic predisposition to anxiety, fear or phobia, says Lisa Radosta, DVM, a veterinary behaviorist in West Palm Beach, Florida, and one of the co-authors of the book From Fearful to Fear Free, released in April. Based on some studies, sporting and herding dogs are at higher risk of developing storm phobias. Theres not a single quick fix or cure, but a combination of environmental management and medication can help most animals ride out a storm safely and comfortably. Work with your veterinarian to try different techniques, supplements and medications to see what works best. Individual pets may need a customized regimen depending on lifestyle, owner schedule, and mildness or severity of their fear.What to try Ask about medication sooner rather than later. I think we tend, as owners, to wait until the dogs really bad to try to actually intervene, says Lore Haug, DVM, a veterinary behaviorist in Sugar Land, Texas. Then it makes it harder to get the dog under control. A drug called Sileo, introduced in 2016, is FDA-approved for dogs with noise-related fears. Keith calls it a gamechanger for Tim. Other medications and supplements that may help include alprazolam (Xanax), gabapentin and diazepam (Valium), as well as natural products such as Zylkene and Anxitane. Provide a safe space. This can be as simple as a crate with a blanket thrown over it or a dark closet or bathroom without windows. Dont close your pet inside it; you dont want him to feel trapped. Try calming clothing. Gear such as Thundershirts, Calming Caps and Mutt Muffs can help to relieve a pets anxiety or reduce exposure to visual and sound stimulation. Many resources are available for people whose dogs (or cats) are fearful during storms, and most pets respond best to a combination of environmental management and medication.

Most people think theres going to be a thing thats going to turn your dogs thunderstorm phobia around, Ms. Keith says. And what Ive learned is that for Tim, its everything in combination and it has to be the right combination. PET TALES

A16 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 7-13, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY and coastlines, Florida is also number one in the nation in boating accidents. There were 766 accidents including 67 deaths across the state in 2017. Florida boaters also racked up $8.5 million in property damage in 2017. The counties with the most mishaps also typically had among the most boaters, and were located on the coast in southern Florida with the longest boating seasons. In order in 2017, those were Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, Pinellas, Lee, Palm Beach, Okaloosa, Collier, Hillsborough and Duval. In 2016, Charlotte made the top 10, but avoided the list in 2017. There were 52 more accidents in 2017 than in 2016, but the same number of deaths. We had a higher number of accidents, but they were less severe, the injuries werent as bad, said Lt. Seth Wagner, FWCs assistant boating safety coordinator. Were having more accidents where people bump and grind for lack of a better (term). In 79 percent of accidents, no one got hurt. But there were still 437 injuries in 2017. Among the most common were lacerations, contusions, broken bones and head injuries. When youre operating a boat, like driving a car, keep your eyes on the water, Lt. Wagner said. And life jackets are like seatbelts anyone getting into a boat should get used to wearing one. Although boaters sometimes have been distracted by their phones, a GPS system or other technology, Lt. Wagner finds that more often the problem is they were talking with other people or got too relaxed about keeping a lookout. You get in a relaxed state because youre out recreating, its your day off, whatever, and you may not be identifying whats in front of you, he said. You may not see that post, that boat, that swimmer. Youre multitasking and not really paying attention to what youre seeing. Youre not staying diligent, and thats when something happens. The report also suggests that young people are wearing life jackets more than middle aged and older boaters. Its a cultural thing, Lt. Wagner said. The number of people that are falling overboard and sadly losing their lives are in general my age, 35 and up, 40 some-odd range, where were not required to have the boater education. Boat operators born on or after January 1, 1988, are required to hold a Florida Boating Safety Education ID Card to operate a boat with 10 or more horses powering it. Of the 67 who died in 2017, 54 were not wearing a lifejacket, 48 had no boater education, and 18 could not swim. Lt. Wagner points out that any boater education helps, even just going online to brush up on the rules of the water. A more comprehensive option is the 8or 12-hour Americas Boating Course offered by United States Power Squadrons, a nationwide network of boat clubs. The courses are taught by local experienced boaters, said Ron Jones, executive officer of Peace River Sail & Power Squadron. At Peace River they generally cost $45 and $65, respectively, but may vary slightly for different chapters of the group throughout Florida. The courses help people learn the area and all the basic rules and safety guidelines, as well as network with other local boaters. The whole goal is to improve boater skills and boater confidence out on the water, Mr. Jones said. So the end result is safer boaters. He also pointed out that life jackets are much more comfortable now than when they were kids. There are light, inflatable belt-pack or over-the-shoulder life jackets available, FWC says. The top location for accidents was a bay or sound, followed by the ocean or gulf, and rivers or creeks. Mishaps also often occurred in crowded marinas. Its people who have larger boats or newer boats and their ego gets in the way and theyre not asking for help when theyre moving around or docking in the marina, Lt. Wagner said. Theres nothing wrong with asking somebody to throw you a line when theres wind or current. Besides operator inattention, other top causes of accidents include alcohol and drug use, operator inexperience, careless operation, and speeding. FWC and other law enforcement agencies issued 13,427 citations in 2017, including 388 for alcohol or drugs. Accidents are listed in the report only if they cost more than $2,000 in property damage or if there is an injury that requires more than first aid.

The tax would be temporary, sunsetting after seven years. The forum discussing the tax is sponsored by the Collier Citizens Council, Collier County League of Women Voters, Greater Naples Leadership, Collier County Presidents Council, Greater Naples Better Government Committee and Naples Press Club. Several local speakers will discuss the referendum and debate the pros and cons. Patrick Neale, a local attorney, will provide the background. Michael Dalby, CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, will argue in favor of the tax. Ron Kezeske, chairman of the Collier County Republican Executive Committee, will oppose the tax. Mike Reagen, a prominent civic leader, will serve as moderator. The forum is free and no reservations are required.

Zehr, M.D. CEO Medical Director Southwest Floridas premier outpatient surgery facility, designed specically for joint replacement239.592.4955 SeasideSurgeryCenter.com1879 Veterans Park Drive, Suite 1101 Naples, Florida 34109Teamwork saves livesSuccessful medical events are always the best; this one shared by Dr. Tom Cook, a senior anesthesiologist, confirms teamwork saves lives (lightly edited for brevity and HIPAA compliance). An amazing story of system teamwork appeared recently. A patient came in with intense abdominal pain to the North ER. A workup ensued with a CT scan and other diagnostic tests. During an ultrasound study the patient stopped breathing, but was quickly resuscitated. A surgical team at North with Dr. David Lamon noticed declining blood pressure and hemoglobin counts. Dr. Lamon then consulted Dr. Santiago Chahwan, who was downtown at Baker Hospital and together they reviewed the studies and diagnosed splenic artery aneurysm with a retroperitoneal leakage. Dr. Chahwan recommended a procedure to place a catheter into the patients groin to stop the hemorrhage. Previous abdominal surgeries made traditional surgery risky. However, Dr. Chahwan and the sophisticated radiology equipment for this procedure were downtown. With blood transfusions, the patient was rapidly transferred by EMS downtown where the nurses and operating room techs had readied the room. Dr. Chahwan and assistant director John Rogers prepared to identify, isolate and treat the splenic artery aneurysm. The patient was evaluated in the operating room and noted to be in hypovolemic, hemodynamic shock with no peripheral pulses palpable, in extreme pain and still conscious basically bleeding to death. Using a glidescope (an instrument to see the entrance to the lungs), the patient was placed on a ventilator. There was no blood pressure by cuff and no palpable pulse. All extremities were cold and pulse oximetry further failed to detect a pulse. Cold redpack cells were transfusing through large-bore multiple IVs. The pulse returned slowly at a rate of 60 per minute despite vascular volume shock. The anesthesia team immediately gave several ampules of Sodium Bicarbonate IV, which resulted in even more improvement. Meanwhile, the surgical team had prepped the surgical site, and Dr. Chahwan began to utilize fluoroscopy to find the splenic artery. The operating room nurses and radiology helped Dr. Chahwan locate and treat the splenic artery bleeding. The patient had to remain perfectly still and relaxed on the operating room table so that Dr. Chahwan could focus on the splenic artery and stop the bleeding. The anesthesia team was then able to catch up and treat the low blood volume vascular system with blood products and then place monitoring equipment to facilitate post-op care. The case was finished, and the patient was then transferred to the surgical intensive care unit where Dr. Howard Cohen and his colleagues took over and continued to manage the patient with excellent care by the surgical intensive care unit RNs. The complex workup and treatment of the hemodynamic blood loss shock involved both hospitals, diagnostic personnel, EMS, operating room personnel and SICU personnel, all combined with nursing and medical teams of anesthesia, radiology, ED physicians, surgeons and intensivists. Together, everyone helped this patient not only survive but also live a longer, happier and healthier life. HEALTHY LIVINGNaples Senior Center at JFCS leads the charge against Alzheimers, dementia SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNearly 10 percent of all seniors in Florida have been diagnosed with Alzheimers disease, and that problem is about to get worse. That was the warning that Alzheimers and dementia expert Dr. Sean Morrison gave those in attendance at a recent gathering organized by Naples philanthropist Patty Baker. Research shows that by 2025, there will be an estimated 720,000 individuals living with Alzheimers disease in the state of Florida, said Dr. Morrison, who is professor and chair of the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. Dr. Morrison commended the work of the Naples Senior Center at JFCS, which offers dementia respite support groups and caregiver boot camps to help patients and caregivers alike. These services allow individuals with dementia the safety, community and care that they need to live as well and as long as possible, Dr. Morrison said. Families and caregivers throughout the Southwest Florida community are offered respite, relief and reassurance that both they and their loved ones are experiencing the best quality of life during what would be an otherwise very difficult time. The senior center facilitates eight weekly groups around the county that provide socialization and wellness for Alzheimers and dementia sufferers. The groups work on language skills, memory techniques, relaxation techniques, socialization and self-esteem building through concentration and memory activities, art and music therapy and more. Alzheimers patients require caregiver assistance 24 hours a day, especially in the late stages of the disease, Dr. Morrison said. Each patient averages two caregivers many of whom are female family members and go unpaid for their services. Caregivers learn the tools they need to provide better support for their loved ones, relieve stress and manage daily activities through the senior centers new caregiver boot camps, modeled after programs designed by UCLA researchers. The first boot camp held earlier this year was well received. Ms. Baker put together the luncheon to promote awareness of the resources available through the Naples Senior Center at JFCS. About 35 local influencers attended and met with Dr. Jaclynn Faffer, president of the center. I invited people who could spread the word about the program and Dr. Faffers extraordinary work with establishing the center and this program in particular, Ms. Baker said. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law both had issues, the former with dementia, the latter with Alzheimers, so Ive had up-close and personal experience and watched the effects it had on family and friends. That personal connection led Ms. Bakers husband, Jay, to join the Naples Senior Center at JFCS board of trustees. We are so proud to have the support of the Bakers, Dr. Faffer said. They truly care about the issues affecting seniors, as we do, and together we are committed to tackling the problems that Alzheimers and dementia pose in our community. To learn more about the dementia respite support groups offered through Naples Senior Center at JFCS, call geriatric social worker Rhonda Eisenberg at 325-4444 or email For more information about the centers caregiver boot camps, call and ask for Anne Chernin.

Its a dead languageIn Charleston, S.C., Cara Koscinski and her whole family were looking forward to her son Jacobs May 19 graduation party. The Post and Courier reported he had excelled in his Christian-based homeschool program, earning a 4.79 GPA and the summa cum laude distinction, an honor Koscinski included in the wording on the cake she ordered online from her local Publix store. When the software informed her profane/special characters (are) not allowed, Koscinski made clear that phrase was Latin, meaning with the highest distinction, and even included a link to a website explaining it. Still, when the cake arrived, it read: Congratulations Jacob! Summa --laude Class of 2018. Jacob was embarrassed, and Koscinski had to tell her 70-yearold mother why the store had censored the word. Publix offered to remake the cake, but as Koscinski noted, You only graduate once.IroniesPolice officers in North Ridgeville, Ohio, were sure the man who called them at 5:26 a.m. on May 19 to report being followed by a pig was impaired and hallucinating. But sure enough, the Associated Press reported, officers on the scene found a completely sober man, walking home from the Elyria Amtrak station with a pig trailing behind him. The departments Facebook page reported that Patrolman Kuduzovic wrangled the oinker into the back seat of his cruiser and later secured it in the stations dog kennels, where the owner later retrieved it. Also, the post noted, we will mention the irony of the pig in a police car now so that anyone that thinks theyre funny is actually unoriginal and trying too hard. Touche.Oops Lyons, N.Y., resident Jesse Graham, 53, must have been surprised when deputies of the Wayne County Sheriffs Department appeared at his door on May 11. WHEC TV reported that Graham, a fugitive wanted by the Mooresville (North Carolina) Police Department, had apparently accidentally dialed 911, summoning the deputies himself. Graham was charged with being a fugitive from justice and possession of marijuana, and he awaits extradition to North Carolina. In Lawrence, Kan., architecture students designed a new bike rack for the Prairie Acre Ribbon Classroom, the first outdoor classroom at the University of Kansas. The metal rack features the letters P-A-R-C, but viewed from another vantage point, they spell C-R-A-P. Social media lit up after a photo was posted May 13, including, Itll make a fine bike rack. Crap a diem! Project PARC KU responded: The photograph shown is not the intended vantage point, nor is it the message of our project, but at press time, the university had not announced any action, according to the Wichita Eagle-Beacon.Anger managementFrustration with the cable company boiled over in Ridgewood, New Jersey, on May 7, when a dispute between an Optimum employee and a woman left the cable worker stranded on high. While the employee was in an elevated bucket working on lines, reported, a 59-year-old woman turned off the truck and took utility property before walking away, making it impossible for the worker to lower the bucket. Ridgeview police charged the woman with harassment, false imprisonment, disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.Least-competent criminals Comrades in arms Mike Mulligan, Michael Martin and Emma St. Claire made the mistake of leaving their burglary booty visible in their car in Nevada City, Calif. So, on May 16 when they were stopped by a Grass Valley Police officer, the prosthetic arm officers spotted pointed the finger at them as the perpetrators of a Nevada County home burglary the previous week. On its Facebook page, the Nevada County Sheriffs office described the limb as the exact arm that was stolen in the burglary. All three were booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility in Nevada City, Fox News reported, and the arm has been returned to a very appreciative owner.What a crockAs it negotiated a roundabout in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland, a dump truck filled with manure lost its balance on May 21 and tipped over, spilling its load onto a Peugot 208 with the driver inside. A witness said he couldnt believe anyone got out alive, but the male driver was able to crawl through the pile of excrement and was unhurt, if stinky, Metro News reported. The car, however, was crushed, according to a Police Scotland spokesman. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

The airport was down 93,000 passengers or 9 percent in April 2018 compared to April 2017 due to the early onset of Easter, spokesperson Victoria Moreland said. A typical marker of the end of the busy winter season for RSW, Easter came in early April. During those first four months of 2018, a total of 4.3 million passengers came through RSW. We set records in January, February and March, all-time records in 35 years of the airport, Ms. Moreland said. Were one of the most seasonal airports in the nation so the majority of traffic flows from Christmas through Easter. Certainly, the hoteliers, attractions and restaurants are all reporting a really good winter season and that was reflected here at the airport as well. In recent years, RSW exceeded its prerecession record of 8 million passengers in 2007 with continued yearly growth. In 2017, the airport accommodated 8.8 million passengers, an increase of almost 238,000 passengers or 2.8 percent compared to 2016. During the first four months of the year, Southwest Airlines led at RSW carrying 19 percent of passengers, followed by Delta Air Lines with 18.5 percent, and American Airlines with 14 percent. JetBlue and Spirit were about split for fourth place, while Frontier carried fewer passengers but was one of the fastest growing airlines at RSW during that time period.Carriers ramped up service during the busy season to meet demand, Ms. Moreland said. Especially throughout the Midwest, the Northeast corridor, people want to come down and they want to come down to the beaches, and (for) the eco-tourism that we offer. Besides RSW, the Lee County Port Authority operates Page Field, a general aviation airport in Fort Myers. Operations were down 18.4 percent in April. One of the reasons is we have been undergoing a significant runway rehabilitation project since early last year, Ms. Moreland said. We should be finished with the entire project in August of this year, weather being on our side.Punta Gorda Airport (PGD)During this decade, growth at Punta Gorda Airport in Charlotte County skyrocketed as it became known as a lowcost, no-frills hub for vacation travel in the United States. In 2010, PGD accommodated 182,000 passengers; last year, close to 1.3 million, a 22.5 percent increase from 2016. The discount, Las Vegas-based airline Allegiant is the airports sole carrier as of April 2017 when Frontier Airlines pulled out. At PGD, Allegiant caters mostly to a growing number of smaller or medium-sized airports throughout the Midwest and northeastern United States. PGD continues to be one of the fastest growing airports in the region, though it has started to slow from its steep upward trajectory in recent years, with passenger counts up 88 percent in 2015, and 34 percent in 2016. During the first four months of 2018, counts grew by 126,175 passengers or 26.4 percent compared to the first four months of 2017. I think well start to level off, said CEO James Parish, but adds that the airport could add another carrier to accommodate continued growth. And Allegiant, which is an airline as well as a travel company, plans to break ground on a massive 25-plus acre Sunseeker Resort on Charlotte Harbor this summer that could fuel more passengers at the airport. It is expected to be finished in early 2020. The resort will include a hotel, nine condo towers, restaurants, bars, marinas, a grocery store and other facilities. It could increase tourism by 300,000 visitors annually, Allegiant reports. I think itll definitely be an increase of air traffic or at least passengers because theyll try to feed their resort as much as possible, Mr. Parish said.Palm Beach International Airport (PBI)Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, where Air Force One often lands when President Donald Trump pays a visit, accommodated a total of 2.7 million passengers during the first four months of 2018, an increase of more than 51,000 people or 2 percent compared to the first four months of 2017. Last year in all, PBI accommodated 6.3 million passengers. While the Midwest is traditionally among the biggest markets for RSW in Fort Myers, PBIs east coast location captures more passengers coming from the Northeast. Our biggest market by far is the New York market, its roughly in the order of New York, Boston and Philadelphia, said Mike Simmons, director of finance and administration for Palm Beach County Department of Airports. Those are probably our big three. (And) when I say New York Im kind of including the Newark airports as well. Palm Beach County has sometimes been called New Yorks sixth borough because the county is known as a popular place for New York area residents to visit, live part time or have a vacation home, including President Trumps Mara-Lago resort. The presidents visits tend to disrupt general aviation operations out of PBI and Palm Beach County Park Airport in Lantana, Mr. Simmons said. Thats because general aviation flights, including private business, corporate jets and civil operations, dont have the same strict security screening process as commercial flights, many are grounded when the president is in town. But his visits have little or no impact on the number of regularly scheduled commercial flights coming in or out of PBI. Mr. Simmons estimates Air Force One has landed in Palm Beach a halfdozen times from January through April. So, what happens is when Air Force One is several minutes away, in flight and about to land, commercial flights do have to stay out of the air security zone, he explained. And then once Air Force One lands and the president is off the airport, the flights are clear to land. And that operation typically is about a 15 or 20-minute freeze on the airport for all other traffic. During the first four months of 2018, JetBlue led all airlines at PBI, followed up Delta Air Lines. American Airlines was the third largest carrier. JetBlue has really grown here in the last several years, Mr. Simmons aid, And a lot of that is the strength of their market in the New York and Boston areas. Among PBIs other carriers, Frontier Airlines with 73,330 passengers in the first four months of the year saw a 14.1 increase and Spirit Airlines with 87,331 saw a 42.3 percent increase. But Southwest Airlines with 256,655 passengers was off 11.5 percent after a mid-air engine explosion in April, killing one person, forced the company to ground aircraft and check itssystems. They appear to be back to pretty much normal, Mr. Simmons said.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Warren Buffett WisdomThe annual meeting of super investor Warren Buffetts company, Berkshire Hathaway, was held in Omaha, Nebraska, in early May, and, as usual, Buffett and partner Charlie Munger held forth for many hours, answering questions in front of tens of thousands of shareholders. Here are some nuggets, paraphrased: On the big picture: Buffett reminded the crowd that when it comes to investing, we shouldnt get too distracted by the current state of the economy. The overriding question is how American business is going to do over your investing lifetime. If you are bullish on America and believe that its businesses will grow and prosper over time, then investing in the stock market should pay off. (A great way to do this is simply to invest in an S&P 500 index fund for many years.) On bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies: Buffett and Munger made it clear that theyre not big fans. Buffett explained that cryptocurrencies are not productive assets to invest in unlike companies with growing sales and profits or a farm that produces crops and will come to bad endings. When you want to sell, Youre just hoping the next guy pays more (than you did), said Buffett. Munger added, ... its just dementia, explaining the popularity of cryptocurrencies this way: Its like somebody else is trading turds, and you decide (you) cant be left out. On health care in America: Buffett noted that health care costs make up around 18 percent of Americas GDP, up from just 5 percent in 1960, repeating that medical costs are the tapeworm of American economic competitiveness. Munger noted that once Democrats have more control in Washington, a single-payer health care system will likely result. Meanwhile, Berkshire is teaming up with and JPMorgan Chase to try to develop a better and lowercost health care system for their employees.Well offer more on Buffett next week. In the meantime, read his educational (and often entertaining) annual letters to shareholders at (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.) Out of the Frying Pan and Back in AgainMy dumbest investment experience was when I couldnt place some trading orders I wanted to make because of problems with my brokerage. It required me to go into the office to sign a couple of forms. I got mad and transferred two of my accounts to two other well-known brokerages. Unfortunately, the other brokerages caused me grief, too, as it took a long time until I got the options trading rights that I wanted. One brokerages online trading screen didnt allow for larger text to accommodate my poor eyesight, and the other brokerage surprised me with lots of extra fees while having a confusing and hard-to-use trading platform. I ended up moving those accounts back to my original brokerage. J.B., Camano Island, WashingtonThe Fool Responds: Youre right to move your account if youre displeased with your brokerage and believe that a different one will serve you better. Most major brokerages get good marks on a host of factors.Be sure you assess many factors before settling on which brokerage to use. Consider trading commissions, but also think about whether you want a brick-and-mortar location and about minimum investments and fees youll face, among other things. It can be a good idea to call each candidates customer service, too, to see how responsive and helpful it is. See if you can get a good look at how easy-to-use their online trading system seems to be, too. A River of (Nasdaq: AMZN) has seen its stock soar more than 2,000 percent over the past decade and more than 60 percent over the past year. From its thriving e-commerce business to its ridiculously profitable Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-computing segment, along with its acquisitions of Whole Foods Market and video-doorbell leader Ring, Amazon is truly firing on all cylinders. (Last year, AWS contributed 10 percent of Amazons revenue and some believe the business could triple over the next five years.) Amazons revenue last quarter skyrocketed 39 percent year over year (on a constant-currency basis) to a staggering $51 billion, with operating income jumping 92 percent. Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has confirmed that the Amazon Prime service sports more than 100 million members. Those members not only enjoy the fast, free shipping on millions of items for which Prime is best known, but also have access to Prime Music, Prime Instant Video, discounts at Whole Foods and other littleknown benefits. In fact, Amazon recently used those benefits to justify increasing the price of Prime by $20, to $119 per year, marking its first price hike in four years. With significant and accelerating growth drivers, is well worth considering as a long-term investment. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, an Amazon subsidiary, is a member of The Motley Fools board of directors.) I trace my roots back to 1906 and a family that bought the Batesville Casket Company and started a hospital furniture company. Ive grown over the years, in part by acquiring other businesses. Today, with a market value recently near $3 billion, I have two focuses: I design and produce engineered industrial equipment, and Im also a top North American death-care company. My businesses include Red Valve flow control products, ABEL pumps, Coperion industrial equipment, Rotex screeners and TerraSource Global, with its Pennsylv ania Crusher, Gundlach Equipment and Jeffrey Rader brands. My ticker symbol is very friendly. Who am I? (Answer: Hillenbrand) After Doubling, What?QWhen one of my stock holdings doubles in value, would it be smart to sell it and buy a different stock that looks more undervalued? D.B., St. Joseph, MichiganAMaybe but maybe not. Focus more on how o vervalued or undervalued you think the stock is and what you think of the companys growth prospects than on how much it has grown. Do you believe it still has a lot of room to grow? If so, consider hanging on to all or some of your shares. The stocks of many great companies have doubled and doubled repeatedly over the years. On the other hand, if, after doing some research, youre not so sure about it, you might sell some or all of your shares, thereby locking in at least some gains. If you dont understand the companys business very well, selling is smart. Meanwhile, if the stock has grown so much that it now makes up a significant chunk of your portfolios total value, consider selling at least some shares so that you dont have too many eggs in that one basket. Even seemingly terrific companies fall on hard times you dont want too much of your money tied up in one stock. ***QWhat do brokerages charge to buy or sell a stock? R.L., onlineAIn the old days, each trade could cost several hundred dollars. Today, though, many major brokerages charge commissions of around $7 or less per trade.

This is positive news for Naples Realtors, according to NABOR, as they transition from a very busy high season to what broker analysts believe will be a very strong summer.Summer buyers are going to be very happy this year because there will be plenty of choices, said Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager for Downing-Frye Realty Inc. Inventory growth has been good across all price ranges and geographic territories.Cindy Carroll, of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll Inc., said the rate of inventory loss is declining and she predicts the Collier housing market will become even more stable before the end of the year. Ms. Carroll considers a 12-month supply of inventory a stable market for Collier County. Nationally, a stable market is reflected as having a six-month supply of inventory.Even though Aprils inventory fell 2 percent to 5,793 from 5,920 in April 2017, its actually rebuilding from an annual low of 4,608 properties in inventory at the end of September 2017. The reality is, the real estate market is doing much better this year than in 2017, said Mr. Hughes, considering the 2018 statistics includes the period of time when Hurricane Irma stalled home sales activity for nearly six weeks starting in September (and as reflected in the 4Q 2017 Market Report).Condominium inventory grew 2 percent in April to 3,003 units, over half the entire market, from 2,934 units in April 2017. The $300,000 and below price category experienced the highest increase in inventory (7 percent) to 1,472 units from 1,378 units in April 2017. Pending and closed sales of condominiums in this low-end price category were also strong, with a 17 and 14 percent increase, respectively. Interestingly, the median closed price of condominiums in April dropped House Hunting26473 Doverstone St., Bonita Springs SEE INVENTORY, B3 Imagine morning breaks with a sunrise over the lake and soft natural light slowing flowing into your home.

8 percent to $271,000 from $296,000 in April 2017. Sellers are pricing properties to sell and it shows, said Adam Vellano of BEX Realty Florida. Overall closed sales increased 8 percent (month over month) in April to 978 properties from 902 properties in April 2017. And just like the first three months of the year, the high-end of the market continued to outpace other price categories tracked by NABOR in April. As shown in the report, the number of closed sales of homes between $1 and $2 million increased 34 percent, while closed sales of homes over $2 million increased 15 percent in April. Closed sales of single-family homes in April were up 11 percent with an increase in every price category except the $300,000 and below range, where there are only 300 single-family homes on the market, said Brenda Fioretti, managing broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty. Geographically, real estate activity was strong across the entire county, but closed sales of single-family homes in South Naples were most remarkable with a 51 percent increase to 62 closed sales in April 2018 from 41 in April 2017. North Naples was also a shining star in April, said Ms. Fioretti.

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JUNE 7-13, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Second tower under construction at Kalea BayCommunitys Club Amenity Center popular with residents Just months after the successful sell out and move-ins of all developer units in Kalea Bays first tower, construction on the second tower in the gated, luxury highrise community located in North Naples is well underway. Weve had record-breaking sales in Tower 200 during the first quarter of 2018, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. To be more specific, from January to May we sold 24 residences in Tower 200 totaling more than $52 million. However, since launching sales in July 2017, we have sold more than 50 percent of all residences in the tower for a total of $120 million. Like its predecessor, Tower 200 is also 22-stories with 120 residences. Specifically, 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 are 4-bedroom/4.5 bath plans with 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans with 3,919 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Like the first tower, Tower 200 will also have rooftop amenities including a pool, open-air fitness center and a sky lounge. Prices in Tower 200 begin at $1.4 million. The residents of the first tower, along with their family members and friends, are already enjoying the communitys Club amenity center. It opened in early January and is now the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. The 88,000-square-foot club amenity center is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, stated Lodge. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. She added, Purchasers in Tower 200 can start using the club and its amenities the day they sign their contracts, affording them an unprecedented opportunity to utilize this amazing $25 million world-class amenity center. The clubhouse itself features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, bistro, a fitness center, and lakeside fire pit. 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 and lounge chairs 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 can be reserved by members to accommodate overnight guests and are located on property. Residents also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse, and takes them to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay, visit the onsite sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile north of Wiggins Pass Road.

B18 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JUNE 7-13, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY DIVCO Custom Homes and Marco Island: a marriage engineered in paradiseFor the home owner, island living in Florida means almost sanctuary-like living and tranquil evenings away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. For the home builder, producing a peaceful existence for island-loving residents means engineering construction standards specifically suited for island living. DIVCO Custom Homes Island Collection designs have been carefully crafted with the water-loving homeowner in mindthose who crave spacious, stately layouts and sweeping seascape views. While engineered specifically for island living, these designs may be modified for inland sites as well. Home buyers know and trust DIVCO Custom Homes, which has over 30 years of home building experience on Marco. The company is large enough to offer the structure, support, and services home buyers on the island demand, but small enough that it allows DIVCOs ownership and management to be hands-on with each home built on the island. The newly completed and furnished Caxambas model, located at 446 Kendall Drive, is an excellent example of the quality of homes DIVCO constructs on Marco. The model was designed by MHK Architecture & Planning of Naples and is part of DIVCOs Island Collection, a series of homes that are carefully crafted to maximize the opportunities for waterfront living. With the opportunity for a custombuilt boat dock, and being just minutes from open water, this home is the perfect design and location to showcase a waterfront lifestyle, said Alan Foster, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for DIVCO Custom Homes. The two-story home offers four bedrooms, four and one-half baths with 3,937 square feet under air and a total of 5,983 square feet in a spacious open plan oriented to take full advantage of the exceptional waterfront location and views. The interior features interior design by Kathleen Scanlan Interiors who developed a casual island theme for easy coastal living. The model is open every day for touring. We have found that home buyers are attracted to the quality, value and design they see in our Caxambas model home, adds Foster. We also have strong relationships with area Realtors, who like bringing their clients to an established, trusted and financially stable builder. Jerry Knight is the DIVCO New Home Consultant on Marco Island. He can be reached at (239) 642-5355.

Construction is expected to be completed in eight months.

C10 New Miracle menu a home run with foodiesAt every ballpark in America, youll find baseball fans with a hot dog in one hand and a draft beer in the other. Hammond Stadium, however, is unlike every other ballpark. Yes, we still serve plump Kayem hot dogs and cold beer (more than two dozen brands, at last count), but the Fort Myers Miracles food and beverage team is managed by a pair of distinguished chefs Kevin Bush and Loren Merrigan known for their culinary genius, creative flair and never-ending quest to create the next big ballpark sensation. This season might just be their best, as evidenced by growing crowds of foodies making a beeline for the concession stand at Hammond Stadium. The Miracle Menu is ever-evolving, but two months into the 2018 baseball season, these are the hottest five new dishes being served at Hammond Stadium, according to Bush and Merrigan.

COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS If theres one thing you can count on with me, it is this: Im always hunting for treasure. I never know where Ill find it or what form it will take, but I will find it. That happened recently at my friendly neighborhood Goodwill store. I dont spend a lot of time in the resale shops I do a quick pass of the shelves, then retrace my steps. It was on my second lap that I spotted a framed 8by 10-inch black and white photograph in a simple frame. The photo appeared to depict a significant event, and one of the folks in the image looked just like Judy Garland. Turns out I was right. But the great Garland is not the only famous person in the picture. To the left of Garland is seated an elderly man, who turned out to be great Connie Mack, manager and an owner of the Philadelphia Athletics. And farther left, near the edge of the image, is actor Peter Lawford. Historian and author Ginger Pederson tracked down a news story on the event. According to a report in the March 9, 1952, Palm Beach Post, Garland was the guest of honor and first batter at the Society Ball Game between teams sponsored by the Everglades and Bath and Tennis clubs. Mack was to throw out the first pitch. Lawford played for the Everglades Club team. The lineups read like a whos-who of Palm Beach society of the day dime-store heir Woolworth Donohue (his wife was Mary Hartline, a pioneer of television), Jimmy Dykes of the Athletics, along with coaches Willy Moses and Bing Miller, as well as members of the Dempsey and Phipps families. No admission was to be charged, The Post noted in its story. But donations were to be accepted on behalf of the Palm Beach Police Christmas fund. Ms. Pederson encouraged me to offer the image to the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. I reached out to the societys historian, Debi Murray, who said she never had known about that game and that shed be delighted if I were to donate it. Looks like I hit a home run this time.

Dont eat, drink or smoke around originals. Wash hands before handling paper and dont apply lotion as it can stain paper. Handle photographs and negatives with gloves. The lower the temperature the longer your items will last, because cooler temperatures slow the rate of chemical decay and reduce insect activity. Keep the temperature below 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep the relative humidity (rH) below 65 percent to prevent mold growth and reduce insect activity. Avoid very low relative humidity because relative humidity below 15 percent can cause brittleness. Automatic feed scanners are not suitable for fragile, weak, bent or valuable papers. Exposure to all light can cause fading, darkening and other changes. The best protection from light is to display copies of the originals and keep the originals in a box.

He was born in Fort Myers in 1922 and that is where he died in 2010. He told me that whenever the circus came to town, the white circus owners would go into the black area of town looking for children. They would offer the children a nickel to get in cages and pretend to be monkeys. The white people would gather around the cages at the circus and the announcer would say, Take a look here! Half boy and half ape! My friend told me that the dehumanization of black people and comparing them to apes has a long history that surpasses America, but it is still deeply American. So, its disappointing to me that I have acquaintances who are standing behind the sitcom celebrity Roseanne Barr after her bosses at ABC cancelled her TV show in the wake of her racist tweet comparing Valerie Jarrett, an African-American woman in the Obama administration, to Planet of the Apes and the Muslim Brotherhood. A Facebook group called Conservative Women posted a meme with a photo of a grinning Barr and the words We Stand with Rosanne SHARE IF YOU DO TOO! As of this writing, it had nearly 22,000 shares. How does one proudly stand with someone for making racist comments? How did conservatism versus liberalism become racism versus equality? It doesnt add up. Ive lived in Southwest Florida for most of my life. This area is overwhelmingly Republican and mostly conservative, so I have quite a few conservative friends and none of them are racists. If they were, we wouldnt be friends. So, to stand behind Barr because youre conservative is tone deaf. Rosanne Barrs show wasnt cancelled because shes a Trump supporter or because shes conservative. It was cancelled because shes an outspoken racist. And this wasnt her first racially tinged tweet. #TimesUp on a lot of unacceptable behavior, and ABC proved that racism is included. Incidentally, Ive always liked the actor John Goodman, who played Dan on Roseanne. Hes talented and hes been in some really good films Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, and if youve never seen Barton Fink you should; he does some of his best work in that movie. I also enjoy Laurie Metcalf, who played Jackie on the show. Shes won a bunch of awards including a couple of Emmys, a Tony for her work on Broadway, and shes been nominated for an Oscar. Other cast members I like are Sara Gilbert, Sandra Bernhard and Estelle Parsons. Its a shame that Barr didnt think of the rest of the cast or the crew when she compared a black person to an ape on Twitter. Which is why I suggest they just write her off the show. I mean, they killed Dan off at one point, right? Maybe the Rosanne character could leave her family to go find herself, or to join a white nationalist cult. Either way, Jackie could become the matriarch of the family and Dan could get more screen time. They could change the title to Jackie and everybody involved could keep their jobs. Id watch that show. stephanieDAVIS COURTESY PHOTOThe cast of the TV show Roseanne lost their jobs when ABC cancelled it after racist remarks by the shows star, Roseanne Barr


der warmers for hours. Our concessions team starts with 16-inch Richs pizza dough and lathers it with olive oil, Italian seasonings, garlic salt and pizza sauce, then tops it with a thick layer of mozzarella cheese. Guests can select from cheese, pepperoni and cheese, sausage and cheese or the Triple Play, which has pepperoni, sausage and cheese.The most interesting part about the Triple Play Pizza is how the pie got its name. In 1990, the Twins became the first Major League team to turn two triple plays in one game, so our 5-4-3 Triple Play Pizza Parlor pays homage to this amazing feat third base to second base to first base, said Mr. Merrigan, catering director for the Miracle. Its a unique way to celebrate an achievement that still hasnt been duplicated 28 years later. Hammond Stadium added a new twotier Lincoln Impinger conveyer oven that bakes pizza pies as customers wait in line, sending a tantalizing, aromatic pizza scent throughout the concourse. PANCAKE BACON BURGER Price: $6.75 Is it breakfast? Is it dinner? Who cares? Its delicious. The pancake bacon burger isnt made for the timid and isnt really an entre suitable to eat at your seat partly because you might need a knife and fork, but mainly because your friends will all want a bite. The entre starts with an all-beef hamburger patty topped with American cheese and crispy applewood bacon stuffed between two golden brown pancakes. The suddenly robust entre is topped with maple syrup and powdered sugar, both of which also are poured into small serving cups in case you choose to add more. The trend in culinary arts is to mix flavors, and a lot of our first-time pancake burger customers arent sure what to expect, said Mr. Bush, the Miracles director of food and beverage. Once you take a bite, though, you cant stop. MAC & CHEESE CHILI DOG Price: $7.25 It starts innocently enough, with a juicy Kayem hot dog and bun, but then the fun begins. A ladle oozing with white cheddar macaroni and cheese coats the hot dog before being topped with ground beef-based, steaming hot chili. At this point, the hot dog essentially disappears. Much like the pancake bacon burger, the macaroni and cheese chili dog is pretty much impossible to eat with one hand. We added tables in the concourse near concession stands so fans could start eating right away and be close to extra napkins, Mr. Bush said. Its been great seeing families and friends buy a couple of different menu items, gather around a table and share dinner. C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 7-13, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSEE MIRACLE, C9 something similar to his solo acoustic shows when hes leading his four-piece band by getting his words and vocals to be the focus and have the other instruments complement and enhance those central elements of his songs. Im trying to merge the same feeling with the band show and the solo show, Keb said in a mid-May phone interview. What Ive been working on is toning down the band show to have the feeling of the solo shows, you know what I mean, just kind of pull it back as opposed to coming out, Were gonna rock the house. We can do a little bit of rocking around the end of the show, but we try to create that same experience with a textured layer of tones that are just as inviting and lovely.This is a notable shift from how Keb Mo was approaching his live shows earlier in the decade. At one point, he was touring in a six-piece format, which brought plenty of sound and energy to the proceedings, but also presented some challenges.The six-piece was really fun. It was really a cool band. (But) it was very hard to wrangle that band. Getting that band to understand that theyre an ensemble, and (need to be) cohesive, you find out you have to march through egos and a lack of understanding about what youre looking to do. This particular ensemble I have (now) is very professional, very sensitive, very cohesive. Keb will have his opportunities to keep refining his band shows later this year, when he does a run of full band gigs in September. For now, hell complete a short run of his solo acoustic dates (including three more shows in other Florida cities) and then join up with his mentor, fellow roots musician Taj Mahal, for a run of 15 concerts in July and August. Those shows will be another chapter in what has been a high point in Keb Mos 25-year career. He is touring with Mahal in support of TajMo, the collaborative album they released last year. That highly acclaimed effort in January won the Grammy for best contemporary blues album, and just recently added Blues Foundation Blues Awards for best album and best contemporary blues album to the list of honors. Keb Mo also took home the Blues Award for best contemporary blues male artist. Keb Mo first encountered Taj Mahal in high school when in 1969 Mahal, then a rising star on the scene, played a concert at his high school. Mahals brand of gritty acoustic-centered blues, mixed in with country, folk, jazz, as well as African, Caribbean and other world music influences was an eye opener for the young Kevin Moore. You had Motown, and it was the s and it was hippies, Keb Mo said. But this was just, it just woke me up. Wait a minute. Get up, get up. Get out of your bed. Eventually Keb Mos own music would come to incorporate a good number of the influences that have flavored Mahals work in his 50-plus-year career. But it took Keb Mo a good while to find his musical voice. A native of Los Angeles, he spent time in a calypso group (playing steel drums and upright bass, no less) as well as an assortment of cover bands before he got his first taste of national exposure in 1973. Thats when Keb Mo was hired by Papa John Creach, the late violinist who recorded with Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship, for what became a three-year stint of touring and recording. But his first chance to release a solo album fizzled when his 1980 release, Rainmaker, stiffed. After that setback, Keb Mo joined a group founded by producer Monk Higgins called the Whodunit Band that introduced him to blues music. This came in handy when in 1990 he was invited to portray a musician playing Delta blues music in a play produced by the Los Angeles Theater Center called Rabbit Foot. The role enabled Keb to delve into the acoustic Delta blues of artists like Big Bill Broonzy and Mississippi John Hurt. It was not long after that production that Keb got to meet Mahal and begin what has turned into a lasting friendship and now a collaborative musical relationship.In 1993, Mahal and his producer, John Porter, were in the studio working on Mahals Dancing the Blues album. A friend of both artists, Chic Street Man, wanted Keb Mo and Mahal to meet and took Keb to the studio to hang out. That meet and greet happened, but perhaps more importantly, Keb was able to give Mahal and Porter his self-made demo tape. Porter liked what he heard and shopped the tape to record companies. Epic Records, which was relaunching its Okeh imprint, signed Keb Mo. The next year his self-titled debut album earned considerable acclaim for Keb Mos contemporary take on acoustic-based blues. He followed that debut effort in 1996 with Just Like You, and saw the album win him the first of his four Grammy awards. Keb has gone on to release another 10 studio and live albums, solidifying his reputation as a talented blues/roots artist and building a sizeable fan base. The TajMo album figures to introduce him to even more fans. Keb Mo and Mahal first got to work on music together when they guested on Lee Ritenours 2010 album String Theory. Then when the two friends crossed paths in 2014 at a Gregg Allman tribute concert, Mahal brought up the idea of doing the collaborative album. Where both Keb Mo and Mahal have been known for the traditional elements in their music, TajMo strikes a bit of a different note. Yes, there are old-school tunes, such as the acoustic cover of the Sleepy John Estes song Diving Duck Blues, and She Knows How to Rock Me, a funky bit of blues spiced with some New Orleans-ish reverie that could fit on either artists solo albums. But much of TajMo features a more contemporary, full-band sound. Dont Leave Me Here blends blues and Memphis soul complete with the horn parts associated with the latter style. All Around the World has a decided pop element in its sunny horn-laced sound. The smooth pop-soul of Om Sweet Om wouldnt be out of place on a Boz Scaggs or Michael McDonald album. There are also a couple of surprises in the Afro-beat of Soul and a grooving accordion-tinged version of the Whos Squeeze Box. It was my idea to have, we needed something fun on this, Keb said of the latter tune. I wanted the album to be fun, not just low down (blues), and whats more fun than Squeeze Box? Both Keb Mo and Mahal were pleased with the album. Winning the Grammy and other honors has only added to the good vibes. Its really nice, Keb said. We worked really hard on it (TajMo). We just wanted it to be good for the people. We put in a lot of hours. The fact that people are getting it is really rewarding. Were really grateful.

ON THE WATERA surge of peer-to-peer boat rentals arrives BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.comJust as Airbnb pushed its way into the hotel industry, companies that facilitate boat rentals directly from owners to users, a peer-to-peer service, are bringing new options to the boat rental and charter marketplace. Fort Lauderdale-based Boatsetter and San Francisco-based GetMyBoat both say they are fast growing companies that will open up the sport of boating to a wider range of consumers and allow boat owners whose vessels often sit unused to make money by renting them out through the companys websites. The companies, in turn, collect a commission for their service. Since GetMyBoat launched in 2013, it has amassed more than 90,000 boats available worldwide through its website, said Bryan Petro, the companys chief operating officer. That includes both peer-to-peer rentals as well as charter operators who advertise their boats through the platform. It has always been our philosophy to have a truly great experience on the water and off the water you have to have a lot of options, he said. Florida boat owners have signed up to use the site more than any other state. Florida is number one, the top state in the U.S., Mr. Petro said. The whole state is great for us, but Miami in particular is a prime destination. Cape Coral, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa. Im trying to think of all the cities there. You could run up and down the coast there Key West and youll see booming business everywhere.Boatsetter is also growing by leaps and bounds, said co-founder and chief executive officer Jaclyn Baumgarten. After operating for a few years as a pilot company, Boatsetter officially launched in 2015 before buying out a competitor, Boatbound, a year later. We have completely disrupted the marine industry in creating a platform that legally and safely allows private boat owners to rent out their boat in the same way Airbnb has done it in the home market, Ms. Baumgarten said. The vessels available through the website range from deck boats to fullfledged yachts. Like Airbnb, renters can see reviews, features of what theyre renting, and rules to abide by. Typically, the renter pays for fuel in addition to the advertised cost per full or half day. In addition to boats, Boatsetter gives owners the option of offering a captain to operate it for you. In Naples, Rand M. lists a 51-foot Sea Ray with a captain for up to 12 people, for $2,300 per full day. The company abides by U.S. Coast Guard regulations and works with local officials, such as marina operators or parks and recreation departments, to create permits for peer-to-peer use. Mike Bagley, general manager of Tarpon Point Marina in Cape Coral, is not aware of any boat owners at the marina who rent out their vessels through a peer-to-peer platform. If they do anything that generates revenue on their own boat theyre supposed to register with us, he said. We dont want to get somebody thats competing with our business. Boatsetter and GetMyBoats peer-topeer platforms are part of the so-called sharing economy ushered in by companies like Airbnb. But traditional rental as well as boat club operations have long offered people who cant afford or dont want to be boat owners a lower-priced, relatively hassle-free alternative to getting out on the water. One of the oldest and largest, Venicebased Freedom Boat Club, has 16,000 members in 29 states with its many franchise locations. The club concept is much different than the peer-to-peer, or other rental models, explained president and chief executive officer John Giglio. And the big difference is as a boat club we own all of our own boats, we maintain our boats, and we have a different level of service than the Boatsetter group. Members pay monthly dues for access to boats in any Freedom location. They also offer a more limited range of vessels. We kind of live in the 18to 25-foot space, single engines, he said. We train our members, they operate the boats themselves. We dont want to be in the big boat business. Thats by design. Whether a traditional rental, peer-topeer, or club business model, boat dealers and manufacturers have often seen them as unwanted competition, Mr. Giglio said. Thats a stigma he aims to disprove. Our hope is (our members) someday graduate to boat ownership, he said. About 20 percent of our members when they leave the club purchase a boat, which is a pretty remarkable statistic. Thats the stigma with the industry were trying to overcome. Were not competition, were a compliment.

POUTINE Price: $7 While Hammond Stadium is home to the Fort Myers Miracle, its also home to thousands of Minnesotans during spring training and the Miracle season. Our food and beverage team continuously surveys fans to see which items theyd like to see added to the Miracle Menu, and this spring we debuted poutine. If youre not from the Upper Midwest or Canada, youve probably never heard of poutine, Mr. Merrigan said. But Twins fans went crazy over poutine this spring, and its been steadily catching on with Miracle fans this summer. The Miracles poutine starts with Cavendish-brand French fries and Wisconsin cheese curds cooked to golden perfection, then piled high into a serving basket. A ladle of thick, brown gravy is artfully spread over the mixture, offering a tastier, unique alternative to ketchup. BEEF TACOS Price: $6.25 Tacos are one of the simplest dishes on the Miracle Menu: two flour tortillas are filled to the halfway point with seasoned ground beef and topped with shredded cheddar cheese. There is nothing fancy or innovative about these tacos, but theyre amazingly popular. And tasty. Our loyal fans, though, know how to capitalize on a promotion. The Miracles 2-for-1 Tuesday promotion essentially has turned that day of the week into Taco Tuesday at Hammond Stadium, Mr. Bush said. For $6.25, you get four tacos instead of two, and our domestic beer and soda also is two-for-one all evening. Its the best bargain in town. Chris Peters is president and general manager of the Fort Myers Miracle, the ClassA Advanced Affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 7-13, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYCash is king at Broadway PalmHe was known as The Man in Black. Musically, he was a boy named Sue, a traveler whos been everywhere, man, and a guy who killed a man in Reno, just to watch him die. He had a voice as deep as being depressed in the bottom of a well. And hed open his concerts by simply saying, Hello, Im Johnny Cash. His musics being re-created at the Broadway Palm Theatre in the jukebox musical, Ring of Fire. It takes 10 performers to portray the singer/songwriter, and even then, they dont always come close. (Sunday Mornin Comin Down is presented much prettier than it has a right to be, considering the lyrics.) At the top of the show, one by one, they say to the audience, Hello, Im Johnny Cash, as if fellow warriors of Spartacus, or contestants on To Tell the Truth. And then were off and running. The performers feed us little snippets of biography inbetween songs, sometimes talking in the first person as though its Cash himself telling you his story, and then sometimes in the third person. They act out little vignettes from his life, with everyone playing multiple roles. (Sometimes that can lead to strangeness, such as when the same actress portrays his mother and then portrays the love of his life, June Carter.) Sometimes those vignettes succeed, such as during the song Five Feet High and Rising, when floodwaters threaten the family and they have to keep moving to higher ground. My mama always taught me that good things come from adversity if we put our faith in the Lord, says a Johnny Cash from the stage. We couldnt see much good in the flood waters when they were causing us to leave home. But when the water went down, we found that it had washed a load of rich black bottom dirt across our land. The following year, we had the best crop wed ever had. Or, the vignette at the very start of his career, when he goes to see Sam Phillips at Sun Records in Memphis. Cash and his two back-up musicians are stiff and unremarkable as they perform a gospel song for their audition number. But Sam Phillips challenges Cash to write a song of his own a sad love song, none of this gospel stuff that wont sell and Cash comes back the next day with the catchy Cry, Cry, Cry. And his career is launched. (Phillips hands him a contract to sign, saying, Welcome to Sun Records. Dont read that too carefully!) But the musical takes liberties; in reality, the song Cash and the Tennessee Two, his back-up duo, played for Phillips was Hey, Porter. This song is played later in the show. This musical presents over 30 Johnny Cash songs, including well-known tunes such as Ive Been Everywhere, If I Were a Carpenter, Folsom Prison Blues, I Walk the Line, Jackson, Sunday Mornin Comin Down and Ring of Fire. Sometimes the harmonies and arrangements are moving, but sometimes you miss Cashs rough-hewn voice. The singers all play instruments and most all of them play multiple instruments. (I think I counted three different people on the upright bass, including one who does tricks with the large instrument, playing while on his back.) They switch back and forth with ease. Someones playing piano, and then all of a sudden they have an accordion in their hands. But the performers are not served well by the theaters playbill, unfortunately. It doesnt list who plays what instrument, nor does it name who sings lead on the songs. To make matters more complicated, the four young women performing are all brunettes and look similar. For the record: Alexander Kosmowski plays rhythm guitar, Matt McClure plays electric guitar, Justin Droegemueller, whos also the music director, plays bass for most of the show. Jonah M. Martin plays banjo and harmonica, Tim Drake plays washboard and guitar, Emily Woods plays fiddle. Andrea DeVriendt plays autoharp, Allison Fund plays ukulele and guitar, Danielle Barnes plays keyboards and accordion and Gary Leone plays drums. Things get moving at the end of Act I with Ms. DeVriendt and Mr. Martin singing Ring of Fire, and then Ms. DeVriendt and Mr. Canty performing the rousing Jackson, which are definite highlights of the show. Act II continues on a high note, with Ms. Woods showing off her fiddling skills on Orange Blossom Special. The staging is clever for Ive Been Everywhere, (direction by Curt Wollan, choreography by Candice Lively) with eight of the performers dressed in black, all in a row like a chorus line, all playing acoustic guitar, the names of cities and states ping-ponging among them as the tempo grows quicker and quicker. A tilted round turntable center stage is also put to good use throughout the show. Opening night had sound difficulties. Vocals werent loud enough for the first number, so they were then cranked up. But they werent adjusted for each individual voice, so some performers were too painfully loud. The soundboard operator was also slow to turn on mikes when a new number would begin, so the opening lines of a song would be inaudible. As you might expect, theres a lot of plaid and denim, and of course, black, in this show. But costume designer Katrina Benedict has a chance to shine with some of June Carters dresses, especially with a red print dress and a glittery black one. The musical (created by Richard Maltby Jr. and conceived by William Meade, with orchestrations by Steven Bishop and Jeff Lisenby) doesnt delve too deeply into Cashs life; it just hits some of the highlights. It adds a novelty song in the first half (Ms. Fund singing Flushed From the Bathroom of Your Heart as Minnie Pearl at the Grand Ole Opry.) And it ends with another novelty song, Cashs A Boy Named Sue. And toward the end of Act II, just when you think things will be ramping up, it all comes to a dead halt with the spoken-word piece, Ragged Old Flag which ruins the pacing and seems out of place. The music itself is a highlight of this jukebox musical. Theres even a percussion solo played on a corrugated metal wall in Folsom Prison Blues and of course, the wonderful mariachi-like trumpet opening of Ring of Fire. This jukebox musical will please you if youre a Johnny Cash fan and entertain you even if youre not. And it might drive you to read Robert Hilburns biography, Johnny Cash: The Life, or listen to Cashs music all over again, from his early Sun Records days to the Rick Rubin-produced American Recordings series of albums made at the end of his life.

That is the nature of the game, and all that can be done in these cases is to exercise your best judgment and hope everything turns out all right. Take this deal where youre in four hearts and West cashes the K-Q of spades, on which East plays the 4-8. West shifts to the club deuce, and you follow low from dummy, losing to the king. Back comes the nine of spades, which you trump as West follows with the three. The only problem remaining is to avoid a trump loser. Normally youd play the A-K, hoping to catch the queen on the first or second round. Granting that thats what you usually do with nine cards of a suit missing the queen, playing for the drop is something you should always think about twice. Sometimes it is right to abandon the so-called percentage play in favor of a finesse, and in this case, you should do a bit more investigating before deciding what to do. Accordingly, after playing a trump to the ace, you cash the A-K of diamonds and ruff a diamond, on which Easts queen falls. When you now lead a second trump and East follows low, you are faced with the crucial decision. West almost surely started with the A-K-Q-3 of spades, given Easts failure to play high-low on the first two tricks and Wests discontinuing the suit after the second trick. The clubs appear to be divided 4-4, judging from Wests fourthbest lead of the deuce. Finally, since East seems to have started with three diamonds to the queen, it follows that his original distribution was 3-3-3-4, making the trump finesse likely to win. Maybe you shouldnt bet the old family homestead on it, but the finesse has now become the percentage play. THIS WEEK ON WGCUTVTHURSDAY, JUNE 7, 8 P.M.

Some of the humor and drama connects, but often its too listless to ignite the screen. Youre left with the feeling that youd rather see this extraordinary cast perform the play on stage. Rated PG-13.Solo: A Star Wars Story (Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Joonas Suotamo) Young Han Solo (Ehrenreich) meets Lando (Glover) and Chewbacca (Suotamo), and flies the Millennium Falcon for the first time, in this Star Wars story. Ehrenreich doesnt have Harrison Fords boyish charm in the title role, which is a shame. Worse, though, is the labored story and murky color scheme. Rated PG-13.Deadpool 2 (Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Julian Dennison) After a horrible personal tragedy, Deadpool (Reynolds) tries to protect a young mutant (Dennison) from a futuristic soldier (Brolin) out to kill the kid. Brash and meta wit are on satisfyingly full display amidst all the action, but an underdeveloped villain makes it a weaker film than the 2016 original. Rated R.Life of the Party (Melissa McCarthy, Matt Walsh, Molly Gordon) After her husband (Walsh) leaves her, Deanna (McCarthy) returns to college where her daughter Maddie (Gordon) is a senior to get her degree. Youll think its going in predictable directions, but it is delightfully surprising and funny. Rated PG-13.Godard, 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.

YesHereditary is notably uninterested in horror movie conventions, and is much better because of it. Its R-rated, yet never gory. It has adult themes and super-freaky supernatural stuff happens, but never in a predictable way. Best of all, there are zero jump scares. None. The timehonored, woefully overdone trope of surprising an audience with sudden peril is pleasantly absent here, as is the only thing worse than a jump scare: a fake jump scare. If nothing else, this film is to be appreciated for not being cheap and easy. To be sure, writer/director Ari Aster isnt reinventing the genre, but he does demonstrate impressive poise in his feature film directorial debut. As it opens, we learn of the death of 78-year-old Ellen. Her daughter, Annie (Toni Collette), grandchildren Peter (Alex Wolff) and Charlie (Millie Shapiro), and Annies husband, Steve (Gabriel Byrne) prepare for Ellens funeral. As can happen, the family seems perfunctorily sad shes gone. In fact, Annie comments that she thinks she should feel worse. No one cries. Ellen was liked, but was also a cold person with whom only Charlie felt close and at 13, and likely dealing with her first death, Charlie probably doesnt know what or how to feel. Annie does ultimately end up in grief counseling, where she meets Joan (Ann Dowd), who coincidentally once purchased a welcome mat from Ellen. Small world, indeed. Whats catching is how the story evolves from a family melodrama to disturbing horror over the course of its 127 minutes. Initially, we feel for the characters, sympathize with their pain and understand that the type of loss they experience could happen to anyone. And then odd things happen, things that you dont expect, all of which befit the narrative and work dramatically. For example, its not entirely unusual for a bird to fly into a window and die. It is unusual, however, for Charlie to then cut the birds head off and use it as part of her figurines. Taking after her mother in a way, we presume, because Annies job is to create miniature models. Be sure to pay close attention to the little details, like food allergies and what faces you see at the funeral in the beginning. Youll be surprised at how these seemingly insignificant elements pay off later. Youll also be terrified and engaged as the plot unfolds, to the point that youll leave with the desire to see the film again to ensure you didnt miss any of its nuances. Leaving the theater, I was struck with the immediate impression that repeat viewings will yield greater understanding and appreciation of the layers Aster has so skillfully crafted here. Ordinarily, horror movies are one-and-done sensations, rarely inspiring another thought, let alone another look. Hereditary is anything but ordinary in the best ways possible. dan >> In April, families attending the PG-rated Peter Rabbit in an Australian theater were horri ed when the trailer for Hereditary accidentally started to play, leading to a small panic that prompted parents to cover their childrens eyes and ears.

C18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 7-13, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELGMC Acadia is a family-style hustlerThis crossover is a con man. In fact, it could be a perfect pool hall shark. Thats because the GMC Acadia is hiding something from you. It has a nice design that has sleek lines and extra wide fender flares. So, like a Hollywood movie star, it has broad shoulders and a winning smile to appeal to both the sexes. Beneath its disarming charm is room for six to seven people (depending on seating configuration). So, its also the kind of con man who gets invited into many homes. Plus, because the interior folds flat, this one can clean out the whole house, including small appliances. Anyone spot why the Acadia is such a good hustler? Its really a minivan in disguise. The GMC badge makes many of us think of all the professional grade vehicles that its marketing has been promoting over the years. And while the GMC Yukon can carry the same number of passengers and tow the toys at the same time, there are a lot of people who want something more comfortable and fuel-efficient for everyday use. Plenty of us need people movers in our lives. Children, grandchildren, or even just large projects dictate a need to carry extra people and their stuff. The problem is right before signing on the dotted line for a minivan, theres a little part our brains that often revolts. It remembers the fun cars in our history the coupes, convertibles and 4x4s that were bought purely for enjoyment. It subconsciously wants to muzzle the part of us that needs a vehicle with versatility as its best virtue. Thats how we get seven-passenger vehicles with big tires and beefy lines like this GMC. Our lives no longer require leaving the urban jungle, but outwardly, the rest of the world doesnt need to know it. Plus, the Acadia does a better job of hiding the minivan appearance than many others. The Dodge Journey, Toyota Highlander and Hyundai Santa Fe are just a sliding door away from this stigma. GMC is not out to fool us all by making a truck-like minivan. They are just giving us what we want. The Acadia is not so tall that elementary school kids need a ladder to board, and its brawny enough that their parents dont have to make excuses to co-workers. While we might willingly invite this masked minivan into our homes, its not alone. The Acadia represents a midpoint in the General Motors three-row crossover family. The Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave bracket it in the market place. The Traverse even comes with the 310 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine. The Acadia starts out for the same money, and is a little more luxurious, but it only gets a 193 horsepower 2.5-liter motor as standard. It takes a few option packages (totaling about $37K) to step up to the 3.6-liter in the Acadia. Buicks Enclave also gets the 3.6-liter and even more premium features all starting at $41,385. The V6 seems a good fit for a crossover like this. As the minivan stand-in, all three rows are often filled with people and/or cargo. Also, the extra power also combines with the Acadias heavy but sharp handling to add some real confidence and a hint of fun to soccer practice runs. This is the deceptive vehicle that wants to look like a rough off-roader but in reality, its a family coddler. The GMC Acadia is a con man, and it can help you trick the world into thinking its not a minivan.

Theres valet parking and a thoughtful staff whose aim is to ensure guests have a great evening. Booths are most distant from the band so you might land one if you want it. Most people the night of our visit were more interested in proximity to the band and dance floor. There are no surprises on the New England-themed seafood menu, but it offers lots of choices for meat and seafood lovers. Salads were fresh and the New England clam chowder was laden with clams and potatoes. A surf and turf special included a tasty onepound lobster, corn on the cob and a big baked potato along with the steak, which needed more seasoning. Both the wine list (bottle and glass) and cocktail menu contained a wealth of choices. And the band played almost the whole time we were there.

Count on flawless French cuisine and impeccable service, a Wine Spectator Grand Award-winning wine list (one of 88 in the world) and a sommelier and servers who enthusiastically guide you through it. House-made smoked salmon with strawberries, grapefruit and arugula sprouts was a delicious starter. A baked goat cheese salad, with julienned snow peas, radishes and walnuts in honey mustard mayonnaise dressing topped with a warm round of breaded goat cheese was equally creative. Pompano in lemon beurre blanc and rack of lamb with eggplant puree and potatoes au gratin were nightly specials worthy of the designation.

True to the Tommy Bahama aesthetic, there are a half-dozen rum concoctions blended with pineapple, coconut and citrus. With food prices topping out at $12, its easy to try a broad sampling of the brief menu. So-called snacks include craft beer cheese and guacamole; salads and rice bowls are topped with proteins that make them substantial enough to serve as entres; and handhelds constitute a couple of sandwiches and tacos with assorted fillings. The world famous coconut shrimp with mango-papaya chutney elevates a culinary clich, and those rice bowls are colorful, bountiful and relatively healthful. Full bar.

Troll king salmon encrusted in pumpkin seeds came atop a stellar sweet potato gratin and the zinfandel braised short rib was fork tender and devoid of fat, made even better by a wild mushroom veal jus.

The Menu: The Details: If youre anything like me and have watched Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern (a man I desperately wish could be my Durian fruithating uncle) gamely tasting a variety of bugs, fermented meats and plant matter, you too lament the lack of protein diversity our culture embraces. So with the image of Mr. Zimmern taking down a rancid dish of Moroccan goat and eggs, I knew I was in far better hands at 21 Spices when I spied the same clovenhoofed mammal on the menu. The dish was visually impressive and since I was expecting a plate of rice, I got all worked up when the biryani arrived encased in a thick crust. After piercing the seal, an aromatic blend of mystery spices, rosewater and saffron hit my nose. The dish at this point was already such an extraordinary sensory experience I would have been satisfied I had my moneys worth and then I took a bite. The goat and rice mixture was rich and heady in a way that Ive never experienced. Now Im afraid 21 Spices has ruined all other attempts at goat I may undertake. If only I could thank Mr. Zimmern for helping me find the nerve. Lindsey Nesmith THE DISH

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 7-13, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINESwiss German Bistro captures Old World flavorsStephans German Bistro was one of those establishments that sat on my to-do list for a long time, passed over for more buzzed-about Bonita Springs restaurants time after time. Well, as luck would have it, Stephan went back to Germany last year, and the space at The Prado at Spring Creek turned into Swiss German Bistro last fall. While there are quite a few options to explore the world of German schnitzel and spaetzle in Southwest Florida, Swiss cuisine remains somewhat of a neglected cousin and a mystery to those whose experience may be limited to fondue and raclette both worthy delicacies but hardly representative of an entire countrys dining habits. Swiss German Bistro doesnt dive too deeply, either, into a cuisine that mixes influences from German, French and northern Italian food. The menu helpfully identifies Swiss items with little flag icons: rosti basically hash browns with toppings such as ham, eggs and cheese; Swiss-style bratwurst paired with onion gravy; and Zrcher geschnetzeltes, which Ill explain shortly. The remainder of the menu is probably more familiar territory, including various schnitzel preparations, beef rouladen, stuffed peppers, gulasch and several kinds of sausages. Sauerbraten was on special the night we visited. There are imported wines and beers to accompany a Teutonic tasting, including Warsteiner, Birburger, Radeburger and Koestritzer in bottles. Preferring tap beer, we ordered light, crisp Pilsner Urquell, which is actually a Czech brew ($5.95 for 16.9 ounces) and was served in boot-shaped glasses in a nod to a German custom dating to the mid-1800s. Aside from a few flags and posters, theres not a lot else in the dining room that speaks to the owners European heritage (although the TV was playing Mary Poppins in German during our meal). The dcor and table settings are sparse. Appetizer options are few, so we asked for cabbage rolls as a starter instead of a main course, which our friendly and efficient waitress said we could order without the usual sides (for $9 instead of the entree price of $13.99). Kohlrouladen is a quintessential comfort food in Germany and neighboring countries like Poland, where theyre called galumpki. Here they are stuffed with moist ground beef, modestly seasoned as a lot of comfort dishes are, and draped with a thin tomato demi-glace that added a tad more flavor. Braised to fork tenderness, the cabbage leaves were delicate and juicy. Potato pancakes, also known as reibekuchen or kartoffelpuffer ($5.95), are another German staple, typically served with applesauce and sour cream. The thin cakes of grated potato with a hint of onion were uniformly golden brown and crunchy. Appetizers and entrees were delivered with remarkable speed we spent barely more than an hour on three courses at Swiss German Bistro. This meat-and-potatoes fare is of the kind that largely needs to be made ahead and can be quickly plated. In the case of the spaetzle that accompanied our Holsteiner schnitzel ($15.50) this can be a detriment. Tiny dumplings made with a flour-and-egg dough thats grated and boiled to create little sparrows, fresh spaetzle are usually tender with just a slight bite; our serving here had some chewy, tough morsels that suggested they had been made earlier in the day and reheated. We liked the rest of the dish, though. The schnitzel consisted of two thin, palm-sized pork cutlets that were breaded and pan-fried to come out evenly brown and crisp. You can order schnitzel several ways; the Holsteiner version adds a fried egg, which amps up the richness of the thin cutlets. The braised red cabbage on the side was authentically sweet and sour. And now back to that Zrcher geschnetzeltes ($16.50), or sliced meat Zurich style. According to several online sources, veal traditionally is the protein used (as is often true with Wiener schnitzel). For whatever reason, Swiss German Bistros geschnetzeltes uses pork cutlets instead, sliced and sauted with b utter, onions, white wine and fresh mushrooms and finished with cream. The sauce was lush without being overly rich, and the mushrooms added considerable texture and flavor to what otherwise was a fairly one-note dish. The rosti on the side more of a free-form shredded potato hash than the more structured potato pancakes were crisp, golden and delicious. For the most part, Swiss German Bistro offers a fairly good representation of its regional cuisine through most of the meal. When it comes to dessert, however, it could do better than just a so-so apple strudel ($4.95) served at room temperature with ice cream. Considering Germanys rich roster of tortes, pastries and cakes, the owners would do well to find a local source among bakeries in the area. Like its Swiss offerings, that would be a welcome addition to the European dining category. drew Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor Holsteiner schnitzel is a breaded pork cutlet topped with a fried egg.

Agencies and organizations offer emergency helpHindsight is always a dishonest voice for the present. Storms on the west coast had been few since Hurricane Wilma during the 2005 season but, last year Hurricane Irma ripped through Southwest Florida and officials expect more this year. But no one wants to walk down the street and see fallen trees and power lines scattered along the road, and wonder what to do next. Yet, this scenario is a reality we should prepare for during every hurricane season. Floridians know from experience that neighbors, churches and local businesses come together in unprecedented ways to help with recovery efforts. Nevertheless, weve compiled some of the contact information for the big organizations that can serve as a starting place for either volunteerism or for your own recovery once the weather system has passed. From reporting downed power lines to who to call about clean water, canned food and local shelters, these accredited contacts will help with your questions and needs.

Wind and rainEvery year since 1953, the National Hurricane Center has generated an alphabetical list of names for the seasons tropical storms and hurricanes. At first, the lists consisted of only female names; since 1979, the names alternate between male and female. There are six lists that continue to rotate, changing only when there is a hurricane so devastating that its name is retired. These names have been retired2001 Allison 2001 Iris 2001 Michelle 2002 Isidore 2002 Lili 2003 Fabian 2003 Isabel 2003 Juan 2004 Charley 2004 Frances 2004 Ivan 2004 Jeanne 2005 Dennis 2005 Katrina 2005 Rita 2005 Stan 2005 Wilma 2007 Dean 2007 Felix 2007 Noel 2008 Gustav 2008 Ike 2008 Paloma 2010 Igor 2010 Tomas 2011 Irene 2012 Sandy 2013 Ingrid 2015 Erika 2015 Joaquin 2016 Matthew 2016 Otto 2017 Harvey 2017 Irma 2017 Maria 2017 Nate Alberto Beryl Chris Debby Ernesto Florence Gordon Helene Isaac Joyce Kirk Leslie Michael Nadine Oscar Patty Rafael Sara Tony Valerie William2018 Storm Names BridgesTravel across the areas bridges becomes unsafe once winds reach gale force, or in excess of 34 mph. Even if physical barricades are not present, drivers should exercise common sense when pre-storm travels involve crossing bridges. Evacuation orders for Southwest Floridas barrier islands will be issued well in advance of a storm, and those affected should promptly heed such orders, before travel across bridges becomes unsafe and roads are closed off. e n i

Many pets were abandoned after Hurricane Charley hit Florida and Hurricane Katrina lashed Louisiana. In recent years emergency management officials have done more to help pet owners protect their pets. The officials urge pet owners to include their pets in emergency preparations. Charlotte, Collier, Lee and Palm Beach counties all offer emergency shelters for people and their pets. Space is limited in these shelters. Space and access is restricted to those in spots where evacuation is mandatory. Most counties offer just one shelter to take in pets. Its important that pet owners check early and get on reservation lists if they are required. In Lee County, for example, the shelter set aside for pets is at South Fort Myers High School. It is managed by Lee County Domestic Animal Services and is on a first come, first served basis. In 2017, Charlotte County specified Kingsway Elementary School as a site for dogs and cats. Collier Countys pet shelter is North Collier Regional Park. It is first come, first served and is for Collier County residents only. People bringing pets to county-run shelters will need to stay there with their pets. They will also need to care for their pets. Animals must be current on immunizations and have sufficient food, water and an approved crate. The best option is for people to leave the area and take their pets with them. Dont expect local veterinarians or boarding kennels to accept animals. They will fall under the same guidelines and conditions as residents. And, should a hurricane strike, they are likely to be without power as well. To prepare their pets for hurricane season, owners should attend to the following: Vaccinations: Make sure pets are current on these now. It takes a couple of weeks for most immunization to become protective so its too late once a storm approaches. Identification: Put pets county licensing tags on their collars, as well as an ID tag with your phone number. Make sure your address and phone number is current on ID tags. A microchip ID (available through most veterinarians as well as Animal Services), is highly recommended because collars can be lost during storms but the chip will remain implanted and owners can update the company as to their whereabouts. Hurricane kits: Gather up pet supplies. (See accompanying segment.)Pet hurricane kit Leash and secure collar Pet food (in waterproof containers), enough for at least one week Water for one week Manual can opener Bowls for food and water Impact-resistant crate of sufficient size (no soft-sided or homemade models and one for each pet.)

14 JUNE 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY HURRICANE ISSUE IS E E I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I H H Florida oldtimers may recall how it used to be after hurricanes struck. It might have meant candles, lots of sweating and a virtual news blackout. Well, except for tinny little transistor radios. That was then. Now. Science and technology march on and thanks to Google searches Florida Weekly found nifty devices that will help you get through the dark times after the next hurricane. Google sure as heck wasnt around when Hurricane Donna slammed into Southwest Florida in 1960. Neither were high-tech gizmos Florida Weeklys Google search uncovered on the Internet, which also wasnt around in 1960.CLEAN H2OClean water is the most essential need for all humans. If a hurricane knocks out water systems and stocks of bottled water dwindle what can one do for more water? Fortunately, science has found ways. Florida Weekly found helpful devices with a Google search. For example, there is something called an Etekcity Portable Water Filtration Device. In May it could be purchased for $18.99 through Amazon Prime. Preparedness is critical before hurricanes. One way to prepare is stocking up on clean water. Our Google search found a product on Amazon called Datrex Emergency Water Pouches for disaster or survival. They come in pouches and the price range is $10.20 to $89.99, depending on quantity. Finally, here is this tip from weather. gov under the category Food and Water Safety During Hurricanes, Power Outages, And Floods: Freeze containers of water for ice to help keep food cold in the freezer, refrigerator, or coolers in case the power goes out. If your normal water supply is contaminated or unavailable, the melting ice will also supply drinking water.This Isnt A Crank IdeaHand-cranked radios might sound like something from the early days of automobiles when one needed a crank starter. But a quick Google search shows hand-cranked radios can be useful during and after hurricanes. Florida Weekly found on the Red Cross website something described as an emergency radio with weather alert and smart phone charger. It can charge smartphones with via USB and includes an emergency LED flashlight. The listed price is $39.99. Sharper Image offers an emergency solar hand crank radio for $89.99. The Sharper Image website notes that the device never needs batteries and runs on solar power. A company called Epica offers a digital emergency solar hand-cranked radio for $21.95. The listed Amazon Prime price in mid-May was $21.95.Let There Be LightIts bad enough with no air conditioning but when youre stuck in a hot house without electric lights the heat feels worse. But there are numerous products out there to help light the darkness. This includes lanterns and flashlights. Florida Weekly found the Etekcity 2-Pack Portable LED Camping Flashlight. It requires six AA batteries and the Amazon Prime price range in midMay was $13.59 to $19.99. The AYL Starlight battery was listed then at $20.99. The choice of flashlights is enormous. Here are two that might work for some stuck in a post-hurricane blackout: The J5 tactical V1-Pro flashlight was listed on Amazon Prime at $11.95. The MagLite Mini incandescent flashlight sported a $9.99 Amazon Prime price in mid-May.PowerGenerators can be wonderful gadgets to have when power is knocked out by a hurricane. The Red Cross on its website,, offers advice on choosing a generator and the safe use of generators. The Red Cross makes these four points about choosing the right generator: 1. What size? Add up the power requirements of the appliances and devices you will want to use. (Check the back and sides for a label with this info.) 2. Add up the wattage of all the light bulbs you will want to use. 3. Find the total amps you need by dividing watts by volts. 4. Choose a generator that produces more amps than you need. Finally, safe use of generators is critical. The Red Cross offers more safety tips than we have room for here but the organization points out the primary hazard from generators is carbon monoxide poisoning. There are also the possibilities of electric shock, electrocution and fire.Disposable GrillsMany people likely recall what was it like last September in the wake of Hurricane Irma. With no power it wasnt possible to cook so people ate what they could out of boxes and cans until the power returned and they could grill up some chicken or do something as simple as boil water. Well, disposable grills can help provide some comfort food in the wake of the next hurricane. Numerous brands and prices are available. On Wal-Marts website, for example, Florida Weekly found a Rankem Instant Grill for $12.01 and a Grill-It-Kit one for $6.15. The Target website offered in mid-May a Kingsford portable grill for $19.95.Protecting Your Communications DevicesMany people have likely dropped cellphones into sinks that are filled with water. That is not a good thing. Imagine what could happen to cellphones or tablets or laptops during hurricanes. A company called DryCASE: Waterproof Cases and Accessories offer helpful products. A review of the companys website finds that it offers products to protect all sorts of devices. A Smartphone case, for example, can be purchased from the company for $39.99. More information is available at www. Is PowerWhen Hurricane Donna slammed into Florida in 1960 information wasnt as readily available as it is now. Even when Hurricane Charley barreled into Southwest Florida in 2004 the information network was different than it is now. There were no cellphones in 1960 and there werent any phone apps in 2004. The first phone apps didnt come out until 2008. Now, 10 years later more information about hurricanes and their paths and power can be found on cell phones. There are many excellent apps that can be helpful. Here are some organizations offering apps residents and visitors may find useful when the next hurricane approaches and after it leaves: Red Cross.

16 JUNE 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY HURRICANE ISSUE IS E E I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I H H Answering your insurance questionsFlorida Weekly emailed 11 hurricane insurance questions to Gray Davis, senior vice president of BB&T Oswald Trippe & Co. in south Fort Myers. With another hurricane season upon us and only nine months removed from Hurricane Irma roaring through Southwest Florida countless homeowners and business people no doubt have more than 11 insurance questions. Florida Weekly also talked by phone with Bud Hornbeck II, the president of Gallagher Lutgert Insurance in Naples. A point Mr. Davis emphasized is that one shouldnt delay in securing the right insurance for a home or business. Florida Weekly: Do most homeowners know once a tropical storm or hurricane watch has been issued that insurance companies will not allow homeowners to obtain new or additional coverage? Mr. Davis: As tropical storms approach the coast line, at some point, insurance companies make the determination that the storm is in the box and they will no longer issue certain types of insurance coverage until the storm passes and the limitations are lifted. The box is a geographical area determined using latitude and longitudinal coordinates that often resemble a box in shape. The insurance company uses internal and external models that tell them that the storm is likely to come ashore and cause damage. The result is not unlike trying to insure your home when it is already on fire no insurance company is willing to do that. Unless you speak with your agent, you would not know that the storm is in the box making additional insurance unavailable at any price. Mr. Hornbeck: He said that once a storm or hurricane is in a box its too late to change or add coverage. Once its in the box theres nothing we can do, Mr. Hornbeck said. Florida Weekly: Is it correct that there is no such thing called Hurricane Insurance? Mr. Davis: That is correct. Your property policy probably has wind coverage which is normally included with most homeowners policies (exceptions being coastal properties that may require a separate windstorm policy) which is required by Florida law. You will have a separate hurricane deductible which only applies if the National Weather Service declares that a storm is a hurricane. That is accompanied by a statement stating that the policy contains a separate hurricane deductible for hurricane losses, which may result in high out-of-pocket expenses. You need a combination of wind, home and flood insurance to come close to covering all of your possessions in the event of a hurricane. Dont wait until too late. Florida Weekly: Do you often get people asking about hurricane insurance and how do you explain why it doesnt exist? Mr. Davis: Not enough people ask important coverage or what if questions regarding their insurance policies. However, in many cases, the answers to important coverage questions is it depends. Generally speaking, even with a standard homeowners policy that includes wind and a flood endorsement, if the wind forces rain inside your home with resulting water damage, your policy will only reimburse you if the wind (the covered part of loss) created a hole or opening in the outside structure of your home which allowed the rain inside. If you lose power to your home which allowed the rain water inside. If you lose power to you home in the aftermath of the hurricane, any resulting loses are not covered if the power station was damaged and your entire neighborhood lost power. However, if the hurricane damaged the transformer to your home which was the reason you lost power, those ensuing losses are probably covered once the deductible is exceeded. Florida Weekly: Is a combination of wind, flood and homeowners insurance the closest thing to Hurricane Insurance? Mr. Davis: There is no hurricane policy, however; the combination of the other policies to include homeowners with wind and a flood policy provide coverage for much of the hurricane exposure. Other, optional coverage enhancements may be available so it is important to ask your agent. Florida Weekly: What lessons did the insurance industry learn from Hurricane Irma? Mr. Davis: On a positive note, new construction standards in Florida prevented Irma losses from being worse than they were. We learned that clay tile roofs did not seem to fair well as compared to well-maintained asphalt shingle roofs. We learned that even when the phone system was down, we could still communicate via text. Florida Weekly: What lessons do you think Hurricane Irma taught homeowners? Mr. Hornbeck: He urged homeowners to meet with their agents before storms are on the horizon. Waiting until after will be too late, Mr. Hornbeck said. Mr. Davis: Irma taught us many lessons. Perhaps the most important is that when a storm the size and scope of Irma makes landfall, no amount of resources are adequate to deal with the damage and resulting claims in a timely manner. The system is overwhelmed. According to the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, as of April 12, 924,439 Irma claims were filed worth an estimated $8.6 billion in insured losses. According to one study, the average primary recovery period when most of the remodeling and repairs are done after a natural disaster is about 14 months. Irma also called attention to loss assessment coverage. These are nasty surprises that home owners and condo members found out about when the golf course they live on or the condo association had damage to common areas. This is your share of the costs that exceed the limits purchased by the golf course or condo association. If you have a qualifying HO-6 condo unit owners policy, you will have at least $2,000 in loss assessment coverage and the deductible can be no more than $250. Mr. Hornbeck: He noted that all these months after Irma there are still open claims. Florida Weekly: Do you recommend people take photos of their homes and possessions before storms approach? Mr. Davis: Absolutely take pictures of your property before and after the storm. There are a number of home inventory apps you can download to your phone that help you document your property.

Make a plan to protect your boat during a major storm The key to protecting your boat from hurricanes or any severe weather is planning, preparation and timely action. The following precautions and checklists are meant as guidelines only. Each boat owner needs a plan unique to the type of boat, the local boating environment, the severe weather conditions likely to occur and the characteristics of safe havens and/or plans for protection. Listen to your local Emergency Management office for specific evacuations related to boats. Do not stay aboard. Winds during any hurricane can exceed 100 mph, and tornadoes are often associated with these storms. First and foremost, protect human life. Develop a detailed plan of action to secure your vessel in the marina. If permitted, remove your boat from the threatened area, or take your boat to a previously identified hurricane refuge. Practice your plan to ensure it works. Arrange for a friend to carry out your plans if you are out of town during hurricane season. Check your lease or storage rental agreement with the marina or storage area. Know your responsibilities and liabilities as well as those of the marina. Consolidate all records, including insurance policies, a recent photo of your vessel, boat lease agreement with the marina or storage area, and telephone numbers of appropriate authorities harbor master, Coast Guard and insurance agent and keep them in your possession. Maintain an inventory of both the items removed and those left on board. Items of value should be marked so that they can be readily identified, if dispersed by the storm. When a hurricane is approaching, and after you have made anchoring or mooring provisions, remove all moveable equipment such as canvas, sails, dinghies, radios, cushions, Biminis and roller furling sails. Lash down everything you cannot remove such as tillers, wheels, booms, etc. Make sure the electrical system is cut off unless you plan to leave the boat in the water and remove the battery to eliminate the risk of fire or other damage.Trailerable boats Be sure your tow vehicle is capable of properly and adequately moving the boat. Check your trailer: tires, bearings and axle should all be in good condition. Once at a safe place, lash your boat to the trailer and place blocks between the frame members and the axle inside each wheel. Owners of lightweight boats, after consulting with the manufacturer, may wish to consider letting about half the air out of the tires, then filling the boat one-third full of water to help hold it down. (The blocks will prevent damage to the springs from the additional weight of the water.) Secure your boat with heavy lines to fixed objects. Try to pick a location that allows you to secure it from all four directions, because hurricane winds rotate and change direction. It can be tied down to screw anchors secured into the ground. Remember that trees are often blown over during a hurricane.Boats in dry storageWhen selecting a safe location, be sure to consider whether storm surge could rise into the area. Never leave a boat on davits or on a hydro-lift.Boats in wet storageThe owner of a large boat, usually one moored in a berth, has three options: Secure the boat in the marina berth. Moor the boat in a previously identified safe area. Haul the boat. Each action requires a separate strategy. Another alternative, running from the storm, is not encouraged except for large commercial vessels unless there is enough time to get your boat beyond the storms projected path.Boats at marinas Double all lines. Rig crossing spring lines fore and aft. Attach lines high on pilings to allow for tidal rise or surge. Make sure lines will not slip off pilings. Inspect pilings and choose those that seem strongest and tallest and are properly installed. The longer the dock lines, the better a boat will be at coping with high tides. It is also essential to double up on all lines and use chafe protectors at any potential chafe points. Install fenders to protect the boat from rubbing against the pier, pilings and other boats. Cover all lines at rough points to prevent chafing. Wrap with tape, rags, and rubber hoses, etc. Assess the attachment of primary cleats, winches and chocks. These should have substantial back plates and adequate stainless steel bolt sizes. Batteries should be fully charged and checked to ensure their capability to run automatic bilge pumps for the duration of the storm. Consider backup batteries. Cut off all devices consuming electricity except bilge pumps.

These disasters affect everyone. Relief supplies and other aid will be arriving as quickly as possible, but may take several days. Try to remain calm, patient and understanding. Your attitude affects you and everyone around you. Remember that the longest and hardest part of dealing with a hurricane is the recovery. There may be residual flooding and roads may be blocked for days or weeks, making damaged areas inaccessible. This may mean that you will not be allowed back to your home for days or weeks. Emergency workers want your return home to be as safe as possible and need time to clear safe access and secure hazards. Listen to local media for reentry information and do not go into unsafe areas. Drive only if absolutely necessary and avoid flooded roads and washed-out bridges. Do not go sightseeing. Gaining access to your residence or business will require a form of identification (drivers license, electric bill, etc.). Sanibel/ Captiva and Fort Myers Beach require hurricane passes obtained from the city. If you evacuated out of the area, consider staying away for a few extra days. Before you decide to return, consider the following: Power will be out for an undetermined period of time. This means no air conditioning, no lights, no refrigeration, no water pump toilet flushing and, in many cases, no stove. Telephone service will be out or limited. This includes 911. Lack of power and damaged facilities will affect both landline and cellular telephone service. Even if your phone works, use it only for emergencies. Texting may be more successful than voice calls. County and municipal water supplies may be unsafe to drink without boiling or chemical treatment. Treat all water as unsafe until you are notified that it is safe. Sewer lift stations may not work, meaning toilets will not flush and sinks will not drain. They may back up into your home or property. When you do return, some damage may not be readily apparent. Inspect your home for damage. Start at the outside and work your way inside. Check for water and sewer line damage. Check the electrical system. Turn off the main breaker until you are sure the system is safe. Check for natural gas and/or bottled gas leaks. Do not enter or stay in a structure if you smell gas. Be careful when you go outside. Pay attention to where you walk and stand. Avoid any downed wires or standing water. Report downed wires to your utility company or to emergency services. Check above you for low-hanging objects or things that could fall. Beware of wild animals that might be dangerous. Fire ants, bees, wasps, snakes, rodents and other wild animals will be seeking high ground. They can create health and safety hazards. Be careful of domestic animals; even ones you know. They may be frightened or injured and more dangerous than you expect. Take pictures of the damage to both the house and its contents for insurance claims. Be sure to date-time stamp the photos. Have all insurance documents ready and be patient. Residents and property owners are encouraged to register for FEMA Disaster Individual Assistance as soon as it is made available, even if the extent of the damage is not immediately clear. The days following a major storm are busy, and the FEMA deadline may pass quickly. Property owners can always update their information with FEMA as the recovery continues. When help does arrive, some may be in the form of the unscrupulous fortune seekers. Do not sign repair contracts until you have verified that the contractor is licensed, bonded and insured. Do not pay for any services until the work has been completed. Does the price seem fair? Are highpressure tactics being used? Report suspicious contractors to authorities. If you see unfairly high prices being charged, report it. Local authorities want to help our residents by requiring competence and fairness. Get additional information at www.
