Not even the Great Depression or World War II can compare to the threat that could end life here as we know it by 2100, 82 years from now. Were on the verge of an ecosystem collapse our young children will inherit. While climate change and the warming oceans will flood some of our most populated coastal communities in the next few decades, we have a more pressing problem: Our own toxic freshwaters now extend throughout Florida, but in particular through the southern half of the peninsula. From Orlando and Tampa south almost 200 miles to Florida Bay, weve poisoned ourselves. This is the current picture: The 143-mile dike surrounding Lake Okeechobee cant contain the water flowing into it each year. The water cant filter southward to Florida Bay as it has for the previous 5,000 years without flooding the 741,000-acre Everglades Agricultural Area, created in 1948 and still supported by U.S. taxpayers, and surrounding towns. Water in the lake is already polluted by decades of Orlando-area runoff, agricultural runoff and back-pumping from the EAA, no longer a common practice. The lakes managers release water east and west when the depth threatens the dike. The already polluted water picks up more pollutants from old, unregulated septic systems and both sewer and city runoff on its downstream course to the sea. Marine life and humans along the river and at the coasts suffer the consequences. So do the southern Everglades and Florida Bay, where about 95 percent of the bird life that existed in 1900 is gone, scientists estimate. Meanwhile, 6 million residents of southeast Florida who depend on the vast Biscayne aquifer underlying the southern Everglades are at risk of losing their drinking water because fresh water no longer filters through the system in sufficient quantities to push back the intruding saltwater. The current devastating algal blooms both in fresh water and salt east and west of Lake Okeechobee, therefore, are bell-ringing notifications: Were on the verge of rendering Florida uninhabitable. While fish-killing toxic red tide, a salt-water algae, and the blue-green bacterial algae that can sicken or kill people sometimes years after theyve encountered it in fresh water are natural occurrences, both seem to explode in warming waters when fueled by agricultural and septic pollutants, natural or not. Worst of all, weve continued to pollute our waters while fully recognizing a coming disaster we had chances to stop especially in the last eight years. In 1960, when both air conditioning and mosquito control became widespread, there were 5 million Florida residents. Since then, Florida leaders have tended to put in place regulations that managed growth, reduced pollution, and sought to avoid the crisis that now confronts us as our population exceeds 20 million. But that bipartisan tendency changed in 2010. Republicans led by Gov. Rick Scott have disassembled the old model for living that required enforced regulation of development and protection of water, instead creating a state the governor calls business friendly. I am sorry to say, Republicans have allowed most of the current catastrophe by willfully avoiding opportunities to head it off. The reason I am sorry to say it is personal: Some of the brightest, most vibrant people I know are Republicans (or Libertarians) and a few have been stung by my comments. One friend responded bitterly this way, in a Facebook post: You must be right, cause eight years ago none of the vectors were in place leading to todays disaster, the Caloosahatchee was pristine, and that $1.8 billion dike repair hadnt even been imagined. Clearly, only one group of miscreants were involved in creating the problem. Theyre all the same, those Republicans. Not even really human, like you, at all. How can you stand even sharing facilities? Time for separate drinking fountains and bathrooms, for a start. So I am sorry, but the facts, now widely reported, remain these: Gov. Scott killed the Florida Forever conservation program established by Gov. Jeb Bush. In 2012, he backed off the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, claiming with fellow Republicans it would create undue burdens to business owners by enforcing clean-water standards that might have prevented or at least greatly reduced the severity of the current devastation. He defunded and weakened the states Department of Environmental Protection, firing 58 DEP employees. He dropped enforcement cases against polluters from about 2,300 to about 800 in his first two years as governor. He cut the budgets of Floridas five watermanagement districts roughly in half, letting go longtime, knowledgeable employees and bringing in real estate lawyers, developers and business people to manage the districts. He weakened standards for toxic chemicals allowed to flow into state waters. He signed a law preventing local governments in Florida from banning Styrofoam and polystyrene in products. He supported offshore drilling while pretending he didnt, as an email exchange between Gov. Scott and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke revealed. He dismantled the Department of Community Affairs that tracked and controlled big development in the state, monitoring and measuring the potential effect of any proposed development on wetland and water resources. And he resisted and ignored proposals to restore the Harmful Algal Bloom task force that was decommissioned in 2001; that single failure to act, alone, likely played a prominent role in the algal explosion weve faced along the Caloosahatchee River to the gulf at Charlotte Harbor, and along the St. Lucie River to the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic, at Stuart. And now he wants to be a U.S. senator. What are the many Republicans who care about Floridas future going to do?

A4 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONWith apologies to Dr. SeussA note from your writer: So much of what happens these days in the political realm is utter nonsense. Why not tell it in verse? At least there will be rhyme with no reason. Every Who in Whomerica likes freedom a lot, But the Trump who lives here in Washington, Does Not! The Trump hates democracy, to the point of malfeasance. Now please dont ask why, we all know the reasons. It could be his head isnt screwed on just right, It could be, perhaps, that his pants are too tight. But I think the most likely reason may be That he has a brain thats the size of a pea. Whatever the reason, his pants or his brain, He manages to be a perennial pain. Hes teamed up with his Russian friend Putin, Although he insists that there was no collusion. He fires angry tweets at many questioning Whos; He lets fly with charges that theyre spreading fake news. If he could hed attack them, perhaps with an ax Instead of relying on alternative facts. He rages and rages to all he may face, And riles up the yay-Whos who make up his base. Hes often at rallies; theres no limit where hell go To sop up the l ove, sa tisfying his ego. His most rabid of followers think hes just great. They adore what he says, as he spews out his hate Against immigrants, media, other critics hed silence, Whipping them up to a frenzy until theyre near violence. Never mind its all lies, misrepresentments, He pushes their buttons, the politics of resentments. His supporters are not just these deplorable souls, His true power comes from the internet trolls. They would steal our democracy, and not only a Russian heist, Theres a real danger here coming from the alt-right. They call themselves that, but theyre fascists and bigots. When it comes to the hate, they would turn on the spigots, Theyre fanatics and crazy, but also effective, After all, one of their own has gotten elected. The Trumps stealing democracy, taking it away inch by inch. Hes not like Dr. Seuss and his wonderful Grinch Seuss wrote a classic, a true snappy rendering Our saga may not have any such happy ending. It is possible that unless we resist Whomericas freedoms will no longer exist. Bob Franken is an Emmy Award-winning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Elizabeth Warrens lieElizabeth Warren is branching out. The Massachusetts senator, who has made a career of unfairly maligning bankers and other alleged capitalist malefactors, is now smearing the criminal justice system, too. In a speech at a historically black college in New Orleans, she declared that the hard truth about our criminal justice system: Its racist ... I mean front to back. Her riff is a sign that the Democrats are going to leaven their lurch toward socialism with a condemnation of America as fundamentally racist. The U.S. criminal justice system is obviously a legitimate topic of debate. But the contention that U.S. law enforcement is a product of racial hatred is a paranoid lie. The basis of the racism charge is the obvious disparities in the numbers. Blacks are 13 percent of the population, yet they account for 38 percent of state prisoners, and for more than roughly 30 percent of fatal police shootings. The driver for mass incarceration, we are always told, is a racist war on drugs. But this is a myth. In his book Locked In, John Pfaff notes that at its height in 1990, the share of state prisoners serving time for drugs was just 22 percent. The proportion fell to less than 16 percent in 2014. So you could release all drug offenders and still leave mass incarceration intact. And you wouldnt just be releasing black prisoners 33 percent of white inmates in state prisons are drug offenders, It is true that the incarceration rates for drug offenses are much higher for blacks. This may be a product of enforcement bias, or other factors such as whites are more prone to use private, as opposed to open air, drug markets. The biggest reason for the overall disparity in incarceration is different rates of offending. Blacks account for about 50 percent of homicides. Its not that the police are simply making up these crimes. The numbers for violent crime accord with reports from crime victims of the race of their assailants. The same applies to police shootings. Joseph Cesario, a professor of psychology at Michigan State University, writes that the differences in involvement in criminal situations between black and white citizens fully explains the population level disparity in fatal police shootings. Now, its entirely fair to argue that different rates of offending are a function of the vestiges of racism, and that it is urgent to pursue criminal justice reform given how the status quo affects black families and communities. But the idea that we are living in a latter day apartheid South Africa, with a system designed to jail and immiserate blacks out of sheer maliciousness, is contemptible, poisonous and wrong. It is telling that Elizabeth Warren is going there. There are two reasons. One is that she has a Bernie Sanders problem: She is a white politician who has overwhelmingly devoted herself to economic issues. She needs to play identity politics catch-up. Two, in reaction to Donald Trump, the left is embracing a sweeping indictment of America as undemocratic and racist at the core. Warrens performance shows that the party is prepared to consider no critique of America too radical or out of bounds.

The #1 cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood flow due to blocked or hardened blood vessels. Unlike pills, needles and creams that DO NOT treat ED, only the symptoms, Acoustic Wave Therapy is a treatment that will OPEN existing blood vessels and STIMULATE the growth of new blood vessels, making it possible to achieve a full and rigid erection. At Southwest Florida Medical Group, we treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction with our proprietary FDA cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy. This type of treatment may provide long-term results and allow men to stop injecting or orally consuming chemicals to receive an erection. The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that Acoustic Wave Therapy aimed outside the body is a revolutionary treatment of ED. The physicians and professional medical staff at Southwest Florida Medical Group will assist and manage your treatment protocol. Paid AdvertisementSAY GOODBYE TO ED As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood flow cannot enter into the penis, thus creating ED. Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSanibel. They werent even going to Fort Myers Beach, said Marty Harrity, owner of iconic restaurants in both locations. Its more of a disaster for the hotel guys than the restaurant guys. But it all goes together. Without heads in beds were not going to have the business. Likening it to a hurricane or an oil spill in the magnitude of disaster relief needed to offset millions in losses and direct costs, communities from Sarasota to Naples are coping with the effects of toxic water from blue-green algae but mostly red tide that has disrupted business as usual. Described as the worst eruption of red tide in more than a decade, the 100-mile coastal disaster has become a national story, reported by The New York Times, The Washington Post, Forbes, National Geographic, among other publications, and major television networks. Its the center of political debates for state and national campaigns. For businesses, local governments, tourism and chambers of commerce, its a dilemma of advocacy versus marketing. John Lai, president of the Sanibel & Captiva Chamber of Commerce, said the phones have been keeping staff busy with inquiries about beach conditions on the world-famous islands. Our July call volume was up 73 percent and our August call volume is up over 300 percent, year over year, he said. Mr. Lai is keenly aware of the doubleedged sword the water crisis has created for the chamber. Were in a precarious position operating in advocacy and marketing capacities, he said. With advocacy comes PR thats not so positive, but it gains traction. Were not portraying the islands in the light we want to for the marketing aspect. he said. We need to judge when to amp up and when to wind down. Our members agree, though, that this is a time when advocacy is key. To provide informed advocacy, Mr. Lai created a survey to gauge the economic impact among chamber members. Since the bad water made national news, he says 5-10 percent losses turned into double-digit drops. On Friday, Aug. 10, Mr. Lai reported: For just July, the lost revenue across all industries was $4,004,122, and the combined total number of jobs represented was 2,116. His survey showed a 27 percent decrease in hotel revenue for the month: $421,388 from cancellations and $39,124 from early departures. Christopher Westley, director of the Regional Economic Research Institute at Florida Gulf Coast University, said, We probably wont have a good handle on the ongoing economic effects of these events for our region until later this fall. Reporting on key economic indicators, like airport traffic and tourist tax revenues, is lagged, so its hard to assess yet. On Aug. 9, the Lee County Tourist Development Council recommended that Lee County provide funding necessary to cover emergency beach cleanup expenses through the end of fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30; spend up to $1 million for a marketing campaign to launch after current conditions improve; and purchase two Surf Rakes ($61,000 each) machines for beach and shoreline cleanup. All would be funded from existing tourist tax funds. Numbers may not yet speak for the volume of the impact, but heartfelt response to the dearth of marine life that has washed up dead on the shores is roundly proclaimed as unprecedented. From a 26-foot whale shark on Sanibel, to more than 110 sea turtles, plus manatees, dolphins and millions of fish, the death toll is so tragic that it has made international news. Some may be able to put an economic value on the effect of these algal blooms on our area, but you cant put a price tag on what the devastating impact to our water quality and the tre-TIDEFrom page 1We see the blue-green algae at the yacht club area and behind our chamber building ...

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2018 NEWS A9mendous loss of sea life is having on the multitude of people who depend on a healthy environment for their livelihood and quality of life, said Paul Tritaik, manager at Sanibels J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, which experienced major fish kills.A coastal catastrophe begins Boca Grande endured the first nationally televised onslaught in late June and early July, when a toxic patch of red tide washed up goliath grouper and massive amounts of fish on Gasparilla Island. The tourist office director in that region sums up the cost beyond just the cold, hard numbers. We understand the disappointment, frustration, economic loss and heartbreak this red tide bloom has caused our community and those who love the area as much as we do, said Sean Doherty, interim director of tourism for the Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach Visitor & Convention Bureau. The heartbreak was especially intense for anglers, as fishing captains used language like Armageddon and looks like a bomb went off to describe the marine mortality. Treasured species such as snook, tarpon, black drum, Spanish mackerel and cobia floated belly up in the famed fishing grounds of Charlotte Harbor and washed ashore the normally pristine beaches of Boca Grande. Capt. Ralph Allen, owner of King Fisher Fleet in Punta Gorda, assessed the impact to his business while sharing his gratitude that most of his back-bay business hadnt been affected. Weve lost thousands of dollars of business due to trips that weve cancelled, and due to cancellations on the part of our customers who are concerned about experiencing the effects of red tide, he said. Fortunately, much of what we do in upper Charlotte Harbor and in the Peace River takes place in an area which so far has been free from red tide. Aside from the fish kills, which not only stink, but also can be hazardous due to catfish barbs that can cause puncture wounds and infections, red tide also causes respiratory irritation when the surf breaks open the naturally occurring dinoflagellate and neurotoxins become airborne. People with respiratory distress or asthma are especially sensitive to the brevetoxin, meaning that medical costs figure also into the financial ledger sheet of the toll. The effects of the red tide have also been felt on other barrier islands in Charlotte County, reminding business owners of the Deep Horizon Oil Spill in 2010. The ironic part of this is that the economy was on fire right before this occurred. It reminds us of the oil spill that was not, says Robin Madden, owner/broker at Islander Properties Inc. We have 33 high-end vacation rentals on Don Pedro-Knight-Palm Island. Our owners and our company have lost almost $100,000 thus far in gross rental revenue. We handle high end real estate sales as well and thus far, this has not impacted sales.Toxic blue-green algaeShortly after the first wave of significant fish kills from the red tide bloom, which has been lingering off the shore of the Southwest Florida coast since November 2017, made national headlines, blue-green algae in the Caloosahatchee River tested positive for toxic cyanobacteria. The presence of the toxin led the city of Cape Coral to post signs advising against swimming at the yacht club beach and against eating fish from algae-infested canals. Massive releases of water from Lake Okeechobee due to heavy rains on Memorial Day weekend from Subtropical Storm Alberto carried the algae from the lake, down the river. We see the blue-green algae at the yacht club area and behind our chamber building, said Donna Germain, president and CEO of the Cape Coral Chamber. Swimming at the yacht club beach is closed, but the swimming pool has waived fees and everything else, including the restaurant, is open. I havent heard of any other closings. PURE Fort Myers, which operates a nature cruise on the Caloosahatchee River out of downtown Fort Myers, reported significant impact to business. In June, as billions of gallons of polluted Lake Okeechobee water were dumped down the river, and the image of a huge plume of brown water at the Sanibel Lighthouse showed the waters reach from the mouth of the Caloosahatchee, people failed to seek out river cruises. The sales of our nature and eco-tours were down 50 percent in June, said Harry Julian, CEO of PURE Fort Myers. In July, we were down about 35 percent over last year. You can feel some eye and lung irritation. But, its not so bad that were cancelling any trips.Peak disaster strikesThe extensive fish kill at Boca Grande and toxic blue-green algae in the river had already wreaked havoc on the publics perception of summer season for coastal Southwest Florida when strong west winds started to blow fish kills from red tide onshore coastal Lee County in late July. On Sunday, July 22, a rare occurrence on Sanibel stunned the scientific community, broke hearts and attracted national attention. While leading visitors on a daily shell walk, staff from the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum were stunned to see a 26-foot whale shark floating belly up in the surf. The beached whale was a harbinger of horrific fish kills yet to come. With the strong west winds persisting over the next week, the extent and duration of fish kills on Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach raised the bar significantly on what Armageddon looked and smelled like and what it was costing. By Saturday, July 28, the city of Sanibel began what would turn into a two-week stretch of extensive fish kill cleanup on beaches and in canals, costing $75,000 per day. By Aug. 9, beach collections alone had yielded 267 tons of fish carcasses, including 72 goliath grouper and 14 tarpon. As of July 30, some beachfront restaurants on Fort Myers Beach closed for several days due to the excessive stench as dead fish were piled up awaiting removal and the health effects of red tide, which often causes bouts of coughing and sneezing. Mr. Harrity, owner of three restaurants on Fort Myers Beach, reacted by shutting down The Beached Whale early for annual renovations and closing outdoor seating at Doc Fords, but keeping open Dixie Fish Co., which has no indoor seating. It is what it is depending how the wind is blowing, sometimes its OK, he said at the time, before the fish kills had been cleaned up and the stench dissipated. But then as the tide comes in, here comes the odor. John G. Heim, a leader in the South Florida Clean Water Movement for the last five years, is an employee at the Junkanoo restaurant on Fort Myers Beach and lives at Red Coconut RV resort right on the beach.

Restaurants that are open are taking a hit, he said during the first week of August. Before the west winds shifted, he said dead fish continually washed onshore.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYlapse. We need the federal government to provide a FEMA-type platform.Ground zero for impactOn Tuesday, Aug. 7, Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane, representing the countys mayors, took the need for disaster relief to the Lee County Board of Commissioners, and they voted unanimously to support issuing a second state of emergency for red tide. Their initial state of emergency declaration was for blue-green algae on July 27. The red tide declaration opened up the bureaucratic pipelines for funding to offset the cost of cleanup and loss of business throughout the county. I spoke with the governor and he put me in touch with the head of emergency management who told me Lee County had to expand their declaration so we could access funds, said Mayor Ruane, adding that Small Business Administration grants and PR and marketing dollars will also be sought to offset economic losses, which cant fully be assessed yet. Businesses on Sanibel and Captiva are tallying their losses and anticipating more to come. Richard Johnson, co-owner of Baileys General Store, expressed concerned that the water crisis has brought Sanibel to a point of no return for visitors. Our guests have told us that they will not be back, he said. They have been telling us for years to clean up our coastal waters or they are going to take their visitor dollars to other vacation countries and cities from now on. And, he believes, the economic loss is just starting to be felt. We have not yet begun to feel the real impacts of this crisis. The first week we were down 10 percent. This is compared to the same time of the year last year. The next week we lost the opportunity to do business at a rate of 20 percent, he said. We expect that before this subsides we will see an impact of 30 to 50 percent business losses. This will continue to compound until permanent measures are taken to eliminate the actions that are causing this disaster.Managing expectationsFor beachfront resorts on Sanibel, the cancellations and losses have been significant. Brett Lindsay, director of sales and marketing at the Sundial Beach Resort, said Sundial is down about 30 percent. We have a link located on the homepage of our website that will direct the guest to information regarding red tide. Our guests experience is our No. 1 priority. We feel it is our responsibility to educate them on the current conditions and allow them to make the decision to cancel without penalty or proceed with their reservation, he said. As with many accommodations in Southwest Florida, generations of families have visited over the years and guest retention is paramount for the resort. At the cir ca-1895 Island Inn, the impact has been crushing. General manager Chris Davison prepared a letter that apologizes to guests for the circumstances. Our business, like many in Southwest Florida, is on life support and going backwards faster than we can count, he admits. The best figure I can give over seven to 10 days since the crisis is weve lost over $100,000 in cancellations and early departures. Tony Lapi, president and CEO of Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts, which includes Tween Waters Inn on Captiva and three resorts on Sanibel, says July numbers were down at all four resorts. In terms of loss, yes, were taking a hit. In July were down overall across the board a good 10 percent. As far as lost revenue, thats another issue, were seeing probably $250,000 in losses throughout the properties, he says. To manage expectations of guests and provide official sources for beach conditions and water quality, the resorts launched www.clear-purpose.org, which features links to updates on red tide forecasts, water clarity, presence of dead fish and respiratory irritation. To boost the morale of locals and visitors, Tween Waters was waiving the usual $50 guest day pass fee. People who used to pay to come here are taking advantage of being able to use our pool and beach. We have happy hour at the pool bar all day long, trying to keep people in good spirits, he said. As far as local attractions, impact is mixed. Most of the state parks, for instance, report drastic drops in attendance year-over-year during the first week in August from 7,121 in 2017 to 885 at Gasparilla Island State Park and 16,808 to 7,897 at Lovers Key State Park, according to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Non-beach attractions such as the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum and Ding Darling Visitor & Education Center on Sanibel Island and the Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers, however, see steady numbers and even slight increases in visitations. Our visitation numbers have not decreased from the norm for this time of year, said Leigh Gay, outreach coordinator at the shell museum. We are an alternative to the beach, so people can escape the red tide inside the museum.On the waterThe actual cost of the plethora of fish TIDEFrom page 9 Our July call volume was up 73 percent and our August call volume is up over 300 percent, year over year ... Were in a precarious position operating in advocacy and marketing capacities. John Lai, president of the Sanibel & Captiva Chamber of Commerce, who said the phones have been keeping staff busy with inquiries about beach conditions on the world-famous islands. Our owners and our company have lost almost $100,000 thus far in gross rental revenue. We handle high end real estate sales as well and thus far, this has not impacted sales. Robin Madden, owner/broker at Islander Properties Inc.Some may be able to put an economic value on the effect of these algal blooms on our area, but you cant put a price tag on what the devastating impact to our water quality and the tremendous loss of sea life is having on the multitude of people who depend on a healthy environment for their livelihood and quality of life. Paul Tritaik, manager at Sanibels J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, which experienced major fish kills.The sales of our nature and eco-tours were down 50 percent in June ...

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2018 NEWS A11killed by the pervasive red tide is yet unknown, as the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is still assessing the numbers. As one would expect, fishing charter captains have seen a loss of business in Lee and Charlotte counties. In Punta Gorda, Capt. Ralph Allen of King Fisher Fleet had to cancel his gulf fishing trips for two weeks due to red tide. Were sending a boat offshore to check on the status of our fishing grounds and will decide how to proceed after we make that test trip, said Capt. Allen. While he expects the excursion business to rebound relatively quickly as soon as water conditions return to normal, he doesnt know how long that will take. And, he has concerns for the long term regarding fisheries. Our fishing business can be impacted over a longer term if fish stocks are severely depleted, but the extent of the fish kills will not be known until after the blooms subside and fishery managers have a chance to evaluate, he said. On Sanibel, Capt. Ben Biery went a whole week with only one booking. And, that trip was heart-wrenching for the visitors. His group was a family with two young kids, and they all had to experience seeing dead sea turtles, giant snook and thousands of bait fish. A pretty hard view of Southwest Florida, said Sierra Hoisington, speaking for Bierys Cast About Charters. People keep canceling on him because of what they see on TV. He had a charter yesterday where they had to go pretty far north, but they still managed to catch a good number of fish, said Ms. Hoisington on Aug. 3. He even told his clients he was supposed to take out today that, but they didnt seem to care. From what you see on TV and on the beach, the idea of going out on a boat is pretty unappetizing to people. On Pine Island, the perception of tainted fish has impacted seafood markets. Katie Fischer, owner of Island Seafood Market in Matlacha, says business is down 50 percent. Obviously our seafood industry has taken a hit, especially since its become so big in the media the last few weeks. Weve owned the business for five years, and this is the worst since owning the business, she said. People dont think its safe to eat seafood, when its actually caught a hundred miles offshore. Were trying to educate people all the seafood purveyors are getting it that we wont sell you seafood that isnt safe to eat. Jim Roach, of the Pine Island Chamber of Commerce, says they are just starting to survey members on financial and health impacts. We certainly saw it in the south end of Pine Island. All the canals had dead fish just solid dead fish in St. James City canals, he said. At the Tarpon Lodge on the northwest side of Pine Island, general manager Rob Wells reported business is down approximately 11 percent over the same time last year. Weve received calls about the water conditions and have done our best to provide guests with up-to-date and accurate information and resources. Weve encouraged rainchecks in hopes guests rebook, but if another date cant be found, weve canceled their reservation without penalty, he said. Capt. Emily LoCicero, owner of Island Girl Charters out of Bokeelia, said she had several cancellations the previous week, but was grateful for a lunch cruise to Captiva the first Sunday in August in spite of the stench of dead fish on the bayside of the island. Capt. Nelson Diaz, a member of Captains for Clean Water who runs charters out of Captiva, was thankful that he didnt have any cancellations. He said he managed to find good fishing spots where the red tide wasnt so bad for his clients. If youre in an area where theres red tide in the air, were all coughing and you can feel it, he said, adding that hes been a guide for 17 years and has never seen a red tide kill off so many fish. The Sanibel Sea School had to divert a whole week of activities indoors for the first time in its 13-year existence due to the red tide. We have not cancelled any of our programs or classes, said Leah Biery, communications director. However, our education team has had to do some quick, creative thinking to modify our camp plans and lesson plans based on the conditions each day.Collier toll not as badCompared to the intensity of impacts on the tourism industry in Lee and Charlotte counties, Collier County was faring better last week. Jack Wert, executive director of the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention & Visitor Bureau, said some dead fish had washed ashore around the Naples Pier and Vanderbilt Beach, but nothing thats taken a substantial toll on business. Collier County has so far not been impacted as heavily as our neighboring counties to north. Really, beachfront hotels only have experienced visitors who have questions and some cancellations, but not wholesale, he said. Beth Preddy, representing Naples Originals restaurants, said business was fine last week, even as NOAA issued another forecast for high impacts due to red tide through Aug. 13 from Sarasota to Naples. Its way too soon to feel any effects. The hotels are seeing a few cancellations, but beach conditions in Naples arent that bad, Ms. Preddy said. Fortunately, we have had a large amount of group business recently, said Frank Cavella, director of sales and marketing at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. They mostly were in meeting sessions throughout the day. Our leisure guests staying at Naples Grande enjoyed our pools and spa. We also had a DJ by the pool to add entertainment. Guests were happy and have enjoyed their time in Naples. Amanda Cox, director of sales and marketing at JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, reported that some weekends, weve actually picked up reservations from guests who already had flights into RSW, and didnt wish to stay on beaches to the north. There has been a touch of red tide noticed on the Marco River and along the island beaches but nothing like whats being experienced north of Naples, said Bob McConville, owner of Dolphin Explorer boat excursions out of Marco Island. There are just a few fish floating in the river and intracoastal waterways, and friends of mine have walked Marco beaches from north to south with no coughing or throat irritation in the last few days. As the red tide persisted to the north, Mr. McConville, too, gained business. I had four people on our boat today who drove from Sarasota for our trip to get away from the bad conditions up there, he said. From what I hear, Marco Island is the least affected beach area in Southwest Florida right now. Harry Julian, CEO of PURE Naples, which runs a fleet of boats out of Tin City, has seen about a $60,000 loss in business between his boats in Naples and Fort Myers. Weve seen a little evidence of red tide up at Naples Bay and the entrance to Gordon Pass, but we havent had to cancel any trips, said Mr. Julian. Real time realityBusinesses have learned over the past couple months that they are at the mercy of the winds and currents when it comes to how badly red tide impacts will continue to hurt business. Since this red tide has persisted through the summer and grown to include a 100mile stretch of coastline, the outlook is that its not going away in the near future. Right now, it gets worse north of the Naples Pier until you hit ground zero at the Sanibel Causeway, said Mr. Julian early last week. But, its constantly changing. It depends on the way the wind is blowing. Southwesterly wind patterns push dead fish on shore. Other sectors of the economy, such as retail, have also seen impacts, especially on Sanibel. MaryBeth Greenplate, co-owner of Sanibel Seashell Industries, reported a 20 percent decrease in business over last year. Definitely less people around Sanibel than usual. August is usually pretty quiet, but business has dropped off drastically since the red tide started. The few tourists that are here tell us they came because they had nonrefundable accommodations, she said. The real estate industry promises to provide real economic indicators on lasting impact. Its unclear how much this will affect our economy in the long-term, but we have already started to feel the impact, said Dustyn Corace, president of the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors. David Schuldenfrei, a long-time island Realtor, lost a $7 million sale due to the bad water. Hes working on numbers to quantify the impacts to island real estate. They will be eye popping. The lost business is astronomical, he said. Chris Wittman, program director at Captains for Clean Water, believes the economic impact will have a tremendous ripple effect. Water quality absolutely affects our entire economy in Florida both regionally and statewide. And, it affects every person in our community one way or the other, says Mr. Wittman, who has booked 20 years on the water with his Fort Myers-based Stillwater Charters. Every aspect of our economy from fishing guides, to hotels, to restaurants to real estate sales and retail were all in this together. Were sending a boat offshore to check on the status of our fishing grounds and will decide how to proceed after we make that test trip ...

Schulberg to the post of executive director. Mr. Schulberg, whose background merges film, television, marketing and fundraising with hands-on civic engagement and community organizing, will bring a new global set of tools to Calusa Waterkeepers mission: to protect and preserve the Caloosahatchee River from Lake Okeechobee to the coastal waters. Following years of advocacy and education on the issue of harmful algae blooms that currently plague area waterways, CWK has emerged as a leading voice on this issue and Waterkeeper John Cassani has become the go-to source for credible science-based news on this crisis. Given the heightened health and economic risk to Southwest Florida residents, tourists and sports enthusiasts, it is critically important that CWK expand its efforts and continue to produce the hard, scientific data that drives public debate, policy, legislation and civic engagement. The appointment of Mr. Schulberg at this juncture will help CWK fulfill its mandate to become a leading organization working towards the restoration of the Caloosahatchee River all the way from Lake Okeechobee to its coastal estuaries in Captiva, Sanibel, Cape Coral and Fort Myers, organizers said. I first fell in love with this ecosystem when my father and uncle produced Americas first ecologythemed motion picture, called Wind Across the Everglades, starring Oscar-winner Christopher Plummer for Warner Brothers in 1957. Now I have come full circle and am honored to join the CWK team in their efforts to rescue the Caloosahatchee and draw national attention to the remarkable beauty of Southwest Floridas waterways and estuaries while we work to restore them to their once pristine glory, Mr. Schulberg said. The Caloosahatchee River Watch Association was cofounded in 1995 by Mr. Cassani. In 2015, it became an affiliate of the international Waterkeeper Alliance founded and run by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., changing its name to Calusa Waterkeeper. In 2016, Calusa Waterkeeper became a full-fledged member of the Waterkeeper Alliance. SCHULBERG

Early voting ends on Aug. 25. Registration for voting in the primary closed July 30. During the Primary Election, electors will vote for state governor, the states cabinet, as well as state and federal representatives within their party affiliations. If opposed within their own parties, U.S. senators, representatives in congress, state representatives and state senators will be on the ballot. Also if opposed within their party voters may also see county commissioners on their ballot. Because Florida is a closed primary state, voters may only vote within their party. The winning candidates of the Primary Election, who see opposition from another party, will then move on to the General Election in November. As of Aug. 6, registered voters eligible to vote in the primary in Lee County included 187,831 Republicans, 118,320 Democrats and 131,031 others. The elections office reported a total of 437,182. In Collier, those numbers are 106,349 Republicans, 49,423 Democrats and 53,338 others. The reported total was 209,110. Numbers reported by the Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections office, as of Aug. 6, were 59,825 Republicans, 36,501 Democrats and 36,755 others. The office reported the total as 133,081. The deadline to request a mail ballot is 5 p.m. on Aug. 22, elections officials say. The ballot must be physically back in the hands of the elections office by 7 p.m. Aug. 28. Postal officials recommend mailing the ballot back a week before election day to account for unforeseen events like weather delays that could delay delivery. A postmark by the deadline isnt good enough if its received after the polls close on Aug. 28. The number of mailed-in ballots received by the Lee County elections office totaled 25,836 as of Aug. 6. Thats a percentage of 5.92 of eligible voters. A total of 15,003 ballots were Republican, 6,815 were Democrat, 3,936 no party affiliation, and 82 other. In Collier County, 10,953 mail ballots had been counted as of Aug. 6, a 5.24 percent turnout. The breakdown included 7,020 Republican ballots, 2,241 Democrat, 1,662 no party affiliation and 30 other.

People think wigs are cheap, but they cost a fortune to make, wig-maker Jahangir Hussain said. In fact, he had borrowed more than $17,000 to buy hair last month from South Indian wholesalers. India exports wigs and hair extensions to the tune of $300 million a year; much of the raw materials are collected at Hindu temples where people shave their heads as a religious sacrifice, a practice called tonsuring.The (im)perfect seatmateChicago cellist Jingjing Hu, a student at the DePaul University School of Music, found herself being escorted off an American Airlines flight on Aug. 2 after trying to return to Chicago from Miami with her instrument. Hu paid in advance for an extra seat for her cello, worth almost $30,000 and housed in a hard case, and had no trouble on her flight from Chicago to Miami, where she participated in a music festival. But on her return trip, after boarding the Boeing 737 and settling herself and her cello into their seats, a flight attendant approached her and told her she would have to leave the plane because the aircraft was too small for her instrument. Hu was booked on a flight the next day on a 767. American blamed the incident on a miscommunication, according to WBBM TV, but Hus husband, Jay Tang, said, I dont think we did anything wrong here, and I think the way they handled it was humiliating. So many questionsWhen an employee of Sarabeths restaurant in New York City opened the walk-in freezer door on Aug. 5, a man jumped out, yelling, Away from me, Satan! and grabbed a knife from the kitchen, which he used to threaten restaurant staff. Carlton Henderson, 54, of Cave Creek, Ariz., struggled with workers but eventually fell unconscious and was transported to Mount Sinai St. Lukes Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the New York Post reported. Authorities dont know (1) why and how he entered the freezer and (2) why he died, but they did determine he was charged last year with two 1988 cold-case murders in Boston. He had been released on bail the week before the freezer incident and was scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 14.RipeWest Valley City, Utah, has a malodorous mystery on its hands. The community stinks, and for the past year, officials have been fielding complaints about the smell, which city communications director Sam Johnson described as a musty sewer smell ... that you can smell in certain parts of the city stronger, according to FOX 13. The city has now launched a campaign recruiting residents to help pinpoint the source of the odor: If you smell something, say something. Theyre hoping more complaints will spur Salt Lake County and Utahs Department of Environmental Quality to investigate and take action.Bright ideaZemarcuis Devon Scott, 18, of Texarkana, Ark., wanted to attend a rap concert in another state, so on July 4 he executed his plan to get there: Scott was seen by Texarkana Regional Airport security officers around 2:30 a.m. jumping a fence and trying to get into an American Eagle twin-engine jet parked there. When police arrived, Scott was inside the cockpit, sitting in the pilots seat, the Texarkana Gazette reported. Scott, not a licensed pilot, told officers he thought there wasnt much more to flying a p lane than pushing buttons and pulling levers. On July 31, he was charged with commercial burglary and attempted theft; hes been grounded at the Miller County jail.

Offer Expires 8/23/18 HEALTHY LIVINGFaculty member shares experience of student nursesA few weeks ago I received an email from Donna Johnson, DNP, RN, and adjunct member of the FGCU nursing faculty, in which she shared insights from 10 FGCU nursing students after their first experience with live patients. First, though, Ms. Johnson had this to say about her experience with the students: For the past 10 weeks, I have had the pleasure working as a clinical nursing adjunct for FGCU with the Adult 1 nursing students on the sixth floor at North Collier on Thursdays and Fridays. This was their first acute care experience. I would like to convey how outstanding of a unit this floor has been in displaying professionalism, teamwork and a positive nursing role model for these students. Two days a week these students and I have been well received as team members caring for patients on the sixth floor. All of your staff, including the nurses and techs, work together in tandem ensuring patient safety and positive patient care outcomes. My students have decorated the staff lounge bulletin board as a gesture of appreciation with their thoughts and comments about this experience, noting key concepts they have learned over these past 10 weeks. Some of these include patient advocacy, professionalism, positive atmospheres, always being welcomed as a student, excellent patient safety, safe medication administration, no passing zone and, of course an atmosphere of true teamwork. With this being our last week, I wanted to convey these thoughts of appreciation to a higher level on behalf of these students. Each week has been an exceptional learning experience. NCH should be very proud of this unique unit and the outstanding mentorship of these future SEE WEISS, A21 Use U.S.-made sunscreens, cancer society says AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETYThe American Cancer Society recommends the use of sunscreen as one way to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. UV rays from the sun and from tanning beds and lamps damage the skin and can cause skin cancer. But some health groups, consumer groups, and environmental groups have raised concerns over ingredients found in some sunscreens and their potential effects on people and nature. Len Lichtenfeld, MD, deputy chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, recommends people buy and use sunscreens that are sold and marketed in the U.S., because of limited information about the safety and effectiveness of sunscreens produced in other countries. Each person should make an individual decision thats most appropriate for themselves, says Dr. Lichtenfeld. But the experts who have looked at the data have concluded that the potential risk of not using sunscreen far outweighs the risks of using sunscreen. Dr. Lichtenfeld, who has had skin cancer himself, says he uses sunscreen on his face every day. The US Food and Drug Administration considers sunscreen to be a cosmetic. This means companies that make sunscreen need to share their data about safety and effectiveness with the FDA. It also means there are certain rules about how the products are marketed and labeled. Sunscreen labels should list their active and inactive ingredients. All sunscreens contain inactive ingredients, such as water or oil. There are also acceptable active ingredients, which are necessary since they actually protect your skin from UV rays. Because some sunscreen active ingredients may be absorbed through the skin and enter the body, its important to have data from studies to find out if sunscreen products may have any harmful effects. For example, infants have a higher risk of side effects such as a rash, therefore, sunscreens are not recommended for infants. The FDA checks that active ingredients in sunscreens do not cause serious problems including cancer, reproductive harm or endocrine effects. But the FDA does not test sunscreen products themselves unless the manufacturer requests a test or if a new ingredient is included that has not yet been recognized as safe. Sunscreen is required to have an expiration date. The FDA recommends not using sunscreen past its expiration date because you cannot be sure it is still safe and effective. If you cant find an expiration date on the product, consider the expiration date to be three years after you purchased it. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in sunscreen active ingredients that have been used in products marketed in European countries. In Europe, there are different requirements for regulating and marketing sunscreen products. The FDA says it is working on ways to recognize some of these other ingredients as safe and effective. Oxybenzone is one of the common active ingredients in sunscreens that are sold in the U.S. The FDA says it is safe. But some environmental and health groups single out oxybenzone as potentially unsafe for some people and the environment. This is because some studies have shown oxybenzone can cause skin allergies. In addition, studies in animals and in human cells in laboratories show that oxybenzone can interfere with how some hormones work. Other evidence suggests that oxybenzone may be hazardous to coral reefs. As a result, Hawaii is banning the sale of sunscreen products that contain oxybenzone beginning in 2021. The jury is still out, says Dr. Lichtenfeld. Im concerned about the human impact to limiting the use of sunscreen. I personally accept the FDAs advice that available sunscreens are safe. But I encourage people to read the reports for themselves and make an individual decision on the type of sunscreen and what ingredients they should use. The American Cancer Society recommends using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 30. It is very important to read the label on sunscreen to know that is it both broad-spectrum and water-resistant. Reading the label will also tell you how often to re-apply the sunscreen based on how water-resistant it is. Some need to be re-applied as often as every 40 minutes, and after swimming or sweating. In addition, when you are out in the sun, wear clothing and a wide-brimmed hat to protect as much skin as possible. Protect your eyes with sunglasses that block at least 99percemt of UV light. Limit your direct exposure to the sun, especially between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are strongest. And avoid tanning beds and sunlamps. Both can cause serious longterm skin damage and contribute to skin cancer. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org

Ms. Johnsons email went on to quote student Melanie Brewer, who grew up in Naples and had worked in a few offices as a medical assistant. Among the ways Ms. Brewer described her time on the sixth floor at North Collier: fantastic, exciting, great mentorship and just like the textbooks and classroom explanations described, but better and more exciting in real life. NCH mentor RN Dawn Saeger loves helping nervous students out of their comfort zones and seeing their faces when they see something new such as a large surgical wound. She knows these first 10 weeks of nursing will never be forgotten as these students careers progress. Nurturing the young has been a hallmark of NCH as we grow the next generation of caregivers. Extending to outpatient areas, FGCU physical therapy student Mitchell Todd is just finishing a semester with Joshua Lewis as his mentor. Mr. Todd shared that the patients respect for Mr. Lewis rubbed off on him as he progressed. While the students and teachers share mutual education, patients benefit, too, thus helping everyone live a longer, happier and healthier life. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

PET TALESInside heartworm BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationClimate change, failure to give preventive products, and the beginnings of resistance to preventives are among the reasons why veterinarians are seeing more cases of heartworm disease in dogs and cats. When the American Heartworm Society performed its triennial incidence survey last year, it found that while the highest incidence remains in the southern United States, no state is free of the harmful internal parasites, spread by the bite of an infected mosquito or, in the case of states such as Alaska, arriving by way of already-infected dogs brought from out of state.Dogs are natural hosts for heartworms. Once an infected mosquito injects microfilaria microscopic baby heartworms into a dogs bloodstream, the worms begin to mature and reproduce. As they get larger heartworms can achieve a length of 1 foot during their 5to 7-year lifespan and increase in numbers, they clog the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels, causing heart failure, lung disease and other organ damage. Cats are more resistant to the parasites, but they can acquire them. Clinical signs include weight loss, exercise intolerance, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, gagging, difficulty breathing and wheezing. Even indoor cats are at risk. Approximately 25 percent of indoor cats are heartworm positive, according to the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm disease is easy to prevent with a monthly pill or topical treatment, and its comparatively less expensive than treating a pet with heartworms. But people forget to give preventives, or they dont give them year-round, giving infective mosquitoes a shot at spreading the parasites. Cool or dry weather slows transmission, but it doesnt eliminate it. Most people think they dont need to give it in the winter, says Craig Prior, DVM, owner of Murphy Road Animal Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. For instance, he says, dogs should stay on preventives for two months after the last exposure to mosquitoes and go on them one month before mosquitoes become active again. With climate change, some species are staying active longer throughout the year and venturing into new areas. For those reasons, parasitologists recommend treating pets with parasite preventives year-round. An associated concern is the beginning of resistance to preventive products. Some populations of heartworms, primarily in the Mississippi Delta area so far, are becoming resistant. By keeping pets on year-round preventives, we decrease the risk of developing more resistant populations and increase the effectiveness of the preventives, says Leni K. Kaplan, DVM, community practice service lecturer at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, New York. Adding a dog-safe mosquito repellent (avoid anything containing DEET) to your dogs arsenal against mosquitoes can beef up his protection. Research published in 2016 found that the combination of a heartworm preventive with the mosquito repellent in the study, Vectra 3D, was 100 percent effective in blocking transmission of immature heartworms from dogs to mosquitoes one of the stages of the heartworm lifecycle and more than 95 percent effective in repelling and killing mosquitoes for 28 days after treatment. The addition of a topical product that prevents mosquito feeding adds a second element of protection to the pet, says Byron Blagburn, Ph.D., a parasitologist at Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. So not only do you prevent heartworm infection if the pet is on prevention, but you prevent the likelihood that the pet will see a mosquito.While Vectra 3D isnt safe for cats, the good news is that if the repellent is used on a dog in the same household, the cat will share in protection because fewer mosquitoes will be present.

Since that time, crypto currencies have plummeted in value, many falling 75 percent or more. These digital currencies have been mostly forgotten about by a large percentage of the general population as a result. Yet the debate remains about the future of Bitcoin and whether it or one of its many peers will rebound in value and re-emerge as a popular investment choice. So what has caused the recent drop in value for cryptocurrencies and will they ever rise to their highs seen at the end of last year?Bitcoin, and the other cryptocurrencies like it, are simply a form of money that exists electronically. Bitcoins are mined where they are created by computers performing complex calculations, which limits the number of coins that are available. They are verified via a block chain, which is basically a record of every transaction that the bitcoin has been involved with. These cryptocurrencies are bought and sold on various exchanges and are stored either on the cloud or in digital wallets. The first Bitcoin was created in 2009 and was valued at around 30 cents per coin. The digital money had no real use outside of black market websites like Silk Road. Over the next five years, early adapters in the tech sector started to buy Bitcoins and the price rose to several hundred dollars per coin. However, it wasnt until 2017 when cryptocurrencies entered the mainstream consciousness that the prices of these currencies rose exponentially. By December, the price had exploded to over $19,000 per Bitcoin. But since that time, the price of a Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has fallen back down to earth with a coin now priced at around $6,500. Several factors contributed to this decline. First, many analysts and investors identified the parabolic rise in Bitcoin pricing as a bubble and once the price started to decline, no one wanted to be the last one to the exits. As a result, a small decline in price led to massive selling and cryptocurrency prices plunged dramatically. Second, there were several high-profile cases of digital coins being stolen from various exchanges and digital wallets. It is estimated that over $1.1 billion worth of cryptocurrency was stolen in the first six months of 2016, leading to the bankruptcy of two major exchanges including Mt. Gox, which was the largest Bitcoin exchange in the world. Because of these hacks, many owners of cryptocurrencies sold their holdings as they did not have confidence that they could keep their money safe. Third, cryptocurrencies have fallen as both national and local regulators across the world have clamped down on buying these digital monies. Dozens of these agencies have started investigations or brought criminal charges regarding illegal investment schemes dealing with cryptocurrencies or cases involving outright fraud. The publicity around these activities have scared off many potential investors.Most recently, digital currencies fell around 10 percent as the Securities and Exchange Commission announced that it would delay its decision to approve a Bitcoin ETF. This was important as it would enable individuals and institutional investors to more easily own and trade Bitcoin. In 2017, Bitcoin fell by 30 percent when the SEC made a similar announcement regarding a proposed ETF developed by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. Going forward, I believe that the downward trend of cryptocurrency prices will continue, especially among the lesser-known digital monies. I cannot see any near term catalyst to stop the bleeding, so I would continue to advise any investor to stay away from any type of digital money until they become more secure and regulated.

In 2016, lenders approved about $1 trillion worth of home refinancing loans in the U.S. That dropped by 40 percent in 2017 to $600 billion and is expected to fall to $460 billion by the end of this year.

And now were in a situation where about 80 percent of homeowners no longer have that incentive. Fewer people are refinancing now primarily because they already did or they bought their home during that period of unprecedented low rates. But while refinance loans as a whole have gone down, new or purchase money mortgages have for some ticked up. The majority of people that have owned their homes for a while already refinanced a few years ago when the rates were really low, said Kim Nyberg, vice president of professional and executive banking with Edison National Bank in Fort Myers. She estimated that Edison Nationals loan originations are roughly 80 percent new or purchase money and 20 percent refinance loans now, while at the height of refinancing, when interest rates were at their lowest, that equation was a closer to 50/50. In the U.S., MBA data shows a similar story: refinance loans as a total share of home loans reached 45 percent in the second quarter of 2016 and fell to 26 percent in the second quarter of 2018. Marisa McDougall, president and owner of Naples-based Southwest Florida Mortgage Solutions, is seeing the same trend in Collier County. Right now, its about an 80 percent purchase market and the reason being is rates have gone up, so people are not refinancing unless they need to pull cash out from the equity of their property, she said. Or maybe they want to buy another property, and they want to pull the cash out and purchase that property on a cash transaction. Lenders knew interest rates would have to go back up eventually. Part of the reason the refinance loan market shrunk so much is not just that rates were at all-time lows, but that they remained that way for so long. The average interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage fell from more than 6 percent in 2007 to 4.45 percent in 2011. It reached an all-time annual average low of 3.65 percent in 2016. In July the rate rose to 4.53 percent, Freddie Mac reports. Even really back as far as 2011 we saw rates dipping below 5 percent and then they just kept falling, said Greg McBride, West Palm Beach-based chief financial analyst for Bankrate.com, which provides financial analysis and comparison services. A good part of the last six years was below 4 percent. What happened was anyone who bought a home during that time got a really great rate, certainly lower than the one thats out here today, and anybody who had a higher rate was able to refinance as rates dropped. Ms. McDougall pointed out that while the refinance business has started to lag, those higher rates may also signal a healthier economy. Because the economy is doing so well, rates have gone up, she said. It was predicted that would happen as the economy recovered. My philosophy is with the new (presidential) administration it has begun to recover and rates have gone up. So were definitely in a purchase market right now. Mortgage Bankers Association chief economist Mr. Fratantoni reflected that opinion. The increase in mortgage and interest rates more broadly is reflecting the strong economic growth were experiencing so thats positive, he said, with the Federal Reserve increasing rates because of a stronger job market and lower unemployment. Interest rates are still historically low even though theyre rising, he said, which makes some types of refinancing attractive. In our area, if someones refinancing its usually one of two reasons, said Connie Ritchhart, senior vice president of residential lending with Charlotte State Bank & Trust in Charlotte County. They have an adjustable-rate (loan). Or they want to do a bill consolidation. Most people, they refinanced when the rates all went down, so now the rates have increased so theres no reason for them to refinance unless theyre doing it for a specific reason. Adjustable-rate loans include home equity lines of credit that may be combined with a mortgage to achieve a lower interest rate. Im still doing my share of refinances, because people have a home equity line of credit whose rates are increasing, said Jeff Brown, a Fort Myers-based mortgage loan originator with Synovus Mortgage Corporation. They want to take that home equity line of credit, combine it with their mortgage, and have one fixed rate. People may also look at refinancing for other reasons besides just locking in a lower interest rate, as well, such as shortening the term of their loan or because they used to have bad credit but their situation has improved. But refinancing a mortgage loan comes with closing costs for the homeowner as well. Its a personal calculation. I think the biggest take-away when considering a refinance is to have a mortgage loan originator analyze the numbers with a client individually to determine if a refinance is best, Mr. Brown said. For Darren Lynch, a Fort Myers-based loan officer with First Florida Financial Group and president of the Southwest Chapter of the Florida Association of Mortgage Professionals, debt consolidation is the top reason why clients refinance. Thats become more popular, he said, as home prices also continue to rise and people have more equity in their home. They are able to combine other loans with a mortgage. People will also do cars and student loans, you name it, he said. It just boils down to how much money youre saving per month. Debt consolidation and cash-out refinancing, which are typically also popular when interest rates are relatively low, may bid well for retailers, Bankrates chief financial analyst Mr. McBride pointed out. Home Depot and Lowes love that, he said. If people are paying off other debt theyre freeing up room in the household budget so theyve got more discretionary income.

If You Lose Your Job It happens to many of us, and often at an unexpected time. Whether you were fired for cause or fell victim to a recent round of layoffs, finding yourself out of a job is a tough spot to be in. As you regain your bearings and start seeking a new position, here are some tips. Keep in touch with your former colleagues even those with whom you werent very close. Theres a good chance that some of them will hear of job openings in your industry that might be right for you. They might not only inform you, but sometimes they can put in a good word for you, too. They might also provide helpful references once youre being considered for a new position. Aim to do a lot of networking instead of just mailing out resumes. You want to stand out among the many applications companies receive for each position, so it can help a lot if someone at a company can vouch for you. According to LinkedIn.com, between 2015 and 2016, fully 85 percent of open jobs were filled via networking. Good ways to network include reaching out to all your professional contacts from past positions, as well as any other well-connected people you know. Inform them that youre looking for a new position and ask them to keep you in mind and to connect you with anyone they know in fields or companies of interest to you. Its smart to build a strong network well before you need it, by cultivating lots of professional relationships and tending to them over the years, through occasional meals, sharing articles of interest and so on. Dont bad-mouth your former employer on social media or during interviews, as youll come across as unprofessional. Instead, say little or just stick to some simple facts about your separation from the company. Losing a job can be painful, but your next position may be even better than your last one. So freshen up that resume and start being active on sites such as LinkedIn.com, Indeed.com, Monster.com and CareerBuilder.com. Doubled DownBack in 1980, I invested in a limited partnership involving domestic oil exploration. My broker recommended it, and it seemed like a good idea. For several years, this investment was successful and paid me well in dividends. But by the mid-1980s, domestic oil production started to drop, along with oil prices. The Wall Street Journal ran an article warning that my company was in trouble. I expressed my concern to my broker, and he pooh-poohed it, suggesting I should invest more money in it. So I invested another $2,500. By 1987, the partnership was out of business, and I was left with nothing. I learned that your broker should never be your sole source of information and that you should rely on sources that have no financial stake in your investments. B.W., onlineThe Fool Responds: Even the best brokers can make bad calls, and some investments do implode, which is why you should aim to spread your money across at least eight to 15 different investments. (Or just park much of it in one or a few low-fee broad-market index funds.) Its also smart to think twice or thrice before adding money to a plunging investment.The company you invested in was overly optimistic about oil prices and borrowed heavily. Thus, it was in big trouble when prices fell. Meanwhile, in 1985, the Securities and Exchange Commission charged it with defrauding investors by issuing false statements. Microsoft Has Been ChangingIf youre still thinking of Microsoft as mainly a producer of the Internet Explorer browser and software for your personal computer, you need to catch up. Microsoft has been reinventing itself, focusing on the cloud and the corporate market, and the results have been substantial. The companys recently reported fourth-quarter results exceeded analysts expectations, with total revenue growing by 17 percent year over year to $30 billion. Thats pretty good for a company with a market value recently topping $800 billion! Revenue from Microsofts commercial cloud computing businesses surged by 53 percent to nearly $7 billion, representing about a quarter of the companys total revenue. The more personal computing division saw revenue grow by 17 percent, while LinkedIn, which Microsoft acquired in 2016, posted revenue growth of 37 percent. Microsoft has been good to its shareholders, too, returning $5.3 billion to them via dividends and share buybacks during the fourth quarter. Its dividend recently yielded 1.65 percent, and it has been regularly increasing its payout by an average of about 13 percent per year. You can find higher dividend yields elsewhere, but not all companies offer Microsofts stability and long-term growth potential. (Teresa Kersten, a member of The Motley Fools board of directors, is an employee of LinkedIn, which is owned by Microsoft.) Down Payment SavingsQIm saving for a down payment on a home. How should I invest that money? C.S., Kinston, North CarolinaAIt depends. If your home purchase is many years away, your money is likely to grow fastest in the stock market, perhaps via a low-fee, broad-market index fund (such as one tracking the S&P 500) that delivers roughly the markets return. The stock market can be volatile over the short run, though, so if you expect to buy your home in, say, five or fewer years (or 10, to be very conservative), avoid stocks. Keep short-term dollars invested in safer places, such as CDs or money market accounts or bonds, to protect your principal. Learn about the best savings rates, credit cards, mortgages and more at theascent. com. ***QWhat does it mean if a stock market halts trading in a particular stock? G.D., Madison, IndianaAA trading halt can be imposed when theres some big news coming out about the company, such as a merger, a product recall or the dismissal of the CEO. It often lasts about an hour or less and is meant to give investors a little time to hear and digest the news. Halts also occur if theres a big imbalance between buy and sell orders. Another kind of trading halt involves the entire stock market shutting down. Thats called a circuit breaker or trading curb, and its triggered by extreme volatility. On the New York Stock Exchange, for example, if the S&P 500 index drops by 7 percent or 13 percent between 9:30 a.m. and 3:25 p.m., trading will be halted for 15 minutes. If theres a 20-percent drop, trading will stop for the rest of the day. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2018 REAL ESTATE B13Second tower under construction at Kalea BayClub amenity center popular with residents The construction of the second tower in Kalea Bay, the gated, luxury high-rise community located in North Naples, is now well underway. Since the sellout of the communitys first tower in early Spring, the sales effort on Tower 200 has grown even stronger. From January through May of this year we sold 24 residences in Tower 200, totaling more than $52 million, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. 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. Call (239) 793-0110 or visit KaleaBay.com.

LONGEST TRACK RECORD OF FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY SUCCESS IN COLLIER COUNTYTo thin my books, Im consulting a de-cluttering tomeWe all know that hoarding is unhealthy, but I say it depends on what you hoard. I dont hoard cats or trash or old newspapers. One cat is plenty, trash is gross and recycling newspapers helps the environment. But I cant get rid of any of my books. There are plenty of wonderful nonprofit organizations where I could/ should donate all but my most sentimental favorites, but as I look at my crowded sagging bookshelves, Im overwhelmed they all hold sentiment for me. For instance, A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. The memoir about addiction shot to the top of bestseller lists in 2005 when Oprah Winfrey made it famous by selecting it for Oprahs Book Club. But when Frey was exposed as a fraud (the book was marketed as nonfiction and it turned out that he made much of it up), his career took a huge hit and book sales plummeted. It was a compelling book, but what I remember most is reading it on a plane when I flew up to Ohio to visit my mom after she first moved there. It was a memorable trip full of good times, beautiful autumn weather and reuniting with friends from childhood. So, every time I see A Million Little Pieces on my bookshelf, I dont remember anything about the book just my mom, the smell of leaves and being curled up on her sofa reading it. I have a copy of The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. I bought it in a used bookstore in the early s. I tried to read it, but the classic novel just wasnt my style and the more I learned about Rands politics, I became even less interested in trying to plod through it. I still have it though, because my dearest friends middle name is Ayn when I catch a glimpse of it on the third shelf, I think of her. It might look random to anyone pressing my bookshelves, but theres a title tucked away named Palmistry. When I was a single mom in my 20s and struggling to pay the bills, I got the idea that I could be a psychic to make extra money. Reading palms would be a lot more fun than say, washing dishes in a restaurant or cleaning hotel rooms. So, I spent a hard-earned $7.95 on a book that promised to teach me the art of palm reading. Alas, palmistry was more difficult than I bargained for and I ended up with a weekend job washing dishes in a restaurant. But that book reminds me that hopefully Ill never have to empty a bus pan full of dirty dishes ever again. Then theres the entire Diana shelf. I have countless books about the late Princess Diana. When I was a teenager, I woke up at 5 a.m. to watch her wedding I followed her marriage, the births of her sons, her divorce and I woke up at 5 a.m. when I was in my 30s to watch her funeral. As a result of my Diana fandom, there was a period when friends and family only gifted me Diana books for special occasions. Turns out, there are a lot of Diana books out there and Im pretty sure I have most of them. Some arent even that good but I cant bear the thought of getting rid of a single one. Theres a small pocket-sized paperback that Ive actually never gotten around to reading. I keep it, though, because my friend Melissa gave it to me about 15 years ago a couple of years before she died of cancer when she was only in her 40s. It was a gift, it was from my sweet Melissa and it doesnt take up a lot of space. The title? Clear Y our Clutt er With Feng Shui. I dont need to read my own palm to know that Melissa is up in heaven, shaking her head at my piles and piles of books. I sense a weekend project coming up. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

Theatre Conspiracy season opens with a world premiereWhat would happen to our world if anyone could choose to remix and rewrite his or her memories and personalities? Find out when Theatre Conspiracy at the Alliance for the Arts kicks off its 25th season with the world premiere of Repossessed, Aug. 16-26. The play by Greg Lam is the winner of Theatre Conspiracys 19th annual Janet and Bruce Bunch New Play Contest. Stephen Hooper directs the cast that includes Rachel Burttram, Brendan Powers, Lauren Drexler, Joanna Haley, Tamicka Linstead and Patrick Day. Rich (Mr. Powers) and Gretchen (Ms. Burttram) seem to have the ideal marriage until they learn it was manufactured and installed in their brains by a mysterious biotech company. But now, because the couple can no longer afford this service, the company must repossess their lives. Repossessed explores questions of morality and authenticity amidst a world of rapidly changing technology and the ethics that come with it. The playwright has created a piece of theater that will generate conversations about who we are and who should be able to alter those traits that make us, says Bill Taylor, Theatre Conspiracys founding artistic producer/director. Mr. Lam will join Mr. Taylor on stage for a talkback with the audience following the Saturday, Aug. 18, performance. For theatergoers who are blind, or have moderate to severe vision loss, an audio-described performance will take place during the Sunday, Aug. 26, matinee (headset reservations must be made in advance).

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYtransformed into an automobile, hed probably look just like the cars you see at Rick Treworgys Muscle Car City in Punta Gorda. These are cars on steroids. Muscle Car City opened in 2009. The cars belong to Rick Treworgy, a car enthusiast and former commercial real estate developer. A car collector since 1973, he purchased an old Walmart and renovated it to house much of his massive collection of GM muscle cars. You enter through the immense gift shop, an almost seemingly endless space filled with metal signs, vintage signs, T-shirts, clocks, books, toy cars and baseball caps most all having to do with cars or car culture. They even sell DVDs about Route 66. The museum itself is one big bright showroom of shiny sports cars almost 200 of them. Its paradise for anyone going through a midlife crisis. Lined up sequentially by year, the Corvettes run from 1954 to 2018, all in tight formation like a regiment of soldiers. The lights gleam off the chrome and polished paint. Its a bit overwhelming. Long rows of Corvette Stingrays, some with hard tops, some with soft tops, some with the top down. Ermine white, roman red, jewel blue, tuxedo black. These cars are undeniably phallic, with exaggerated protruding hoods. They cars drip with testosterone the way clunkers drip engine oil. By comparison, the Chevrolet Novas are boxy, and come in colors such as rally red and dover white. A pale yellow 1965 Chevelle Malibu SS with a black top turns on a revolving wheel as if its a new model in a car show. In some places, the cars are so tightly packed its impossible to pass between them. Theres minimal signage, so you dont really know any history or information about the cars. (Two exceptions: theres a sign for a 1963 Corvette Stingray, explaining that its only one of 10,594 produced, and that that was the only year it had the split window design. And a sign by a 1936 Chevrolet Phaeton explains that it was one of seven built and is the last known to exist.) The museum is a salute to American car making. The space showcases Corvettes, Impalas, Novas, Bel Airs, Nomads, Oldsmobiles, Cameros and Pontiac GTOs from the s. A 1948 four-door Woody Wagon looks as if it belongs on an early Beach Boys album cover. (And, coincidentally, the museum plays s music over its loudspeakers: The Beatles, the Supremes, and yes, the Beach Boys.) The sides and rear of the car are a light, pretty wood, which complements the navy or black paint of the car. Lined up against one wall you can find a handful of arcade games, including The Fortune Teller and the Love Tester, which suggests that you measure your sex appeal on this love meter. However, as with the cars, signs caution you not to touch the machines. A row of Schwinn bicycles took me back to my childhood, especially when I saw a sparkly green one with a banana seat and U-shaped handlebars. Muscle Car City holds a car show from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every third Saturday of the month and an Auto Flea Market from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. the last Sunday of every month. A diner is scheduled to open in the fall.Muscle Car City, 10175 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda, 941575-5959 or musclecarcity.net. Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Prices: $12.50 plus tax for adults, $6 plus tax for children 12 and younger, children under 2 free.Trains, (planes and automobiles)The Naples Depot, the citys former railroad station, is a museum that does double duty: it tells the history of the railroad in Naples, as well as the history of Naples, which grew from 390 residents in 1930 to more than 12,000 in 1970. (Actually, the depot does triple duty; theres a small art gallery in the back.) The museum, which is privately operated, opened on Jan. 7, 2011, the anniversary of when the first train, the Orange Blossom Special, came into the station in 1927. A nonprofit group got together in the 0s to save the station and it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The buildings owned by Southwest Heritage; the county leases it for $1 a year. Railroad enthusiasts may be disappointed there isnt more railroadiana on display. But the depot houses navy conductor uniforms with golden buttons, train schedules and tickets, a ticket puncher, a lantern, a telegraph machine and a spittoon. Also on display: various patterns of dining car china and silverware, with accompanying menu. (The most expensive meal is the steak, for just $5 and change.) You can walk through three railroad cars housed outside. The 1947 streamlined combination observation car and bar has just been restored to its former glory. Inside, theres more than railroads. An entire corners devoted to the Naples Airport, with a propeller hanging from the ceiling. And there are even a couple of cars: the DoodleBug from the Swamp Buggy Races and a two-tone, sky-blue and white 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air, a Reubenesque car with a trunk so big it could house your entire family and your pets. The car sits under the red neon Trails End Motel sign. The museum shows the good and the ugly. The good: the building of the Naples Hospital and the Naples Airport. The ugly: radio broadcasts warning of category 4 Hurricane Donna in 1960 and photos of its destruction, and a placard explaining how slave owners allowed their slaves to be used to build tracks, in exchange for the owners receiving shares in the railroad. A small track outside encircles the Spanish-style depot, but be aware: train rides for kids and adults arent always available. The Lionel model train exhibit is housed in a different building. It is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. until November. Tickets are $7 for adults, $3 for children 3-14 and free for children under 3. Ticket price includes a ride on the outside train. In their heyday, train depots were a thriving center of activity for towns and cities across the U.S. Now many are no longer used and are in disrepair. The Naples Depot Museum is an opportunity to see one brought back to its former glory.

The world of your imaginationIMAG History and Science Center in Fort Myers is a true hands-on museum: you can touch a cloud, touch a stingray and touch a meteor thats traveled through outer space. On a recent weekday morning it was bustling with children and adults, the kids running from exhibit to exhibit, pushing buttons and cranking wheels. One interactive section shows how gears, screws, levers and pulleys work. Another shows how Newtons Laws of Motion work, using billiard balls on a wire track. The most exciting thing, for me, was Virtual Fort Myers, which uses virtual reality to tell you more about the town. You can choose a tour or a battle. I chose the tour. Wearing a headset that gave me a three-dimensional, 360-degree view, I was able to see Fort Myers when it was an actual fort. Using virtual hands, I was able to interact with the environment I saw, feeding a horse a carrot, lighting a fire, and knocking a basket into the river where an alligator floated. It was almost like being on a Star Trek holodeck, but much more primitive. And Fort Myers itself was much more primitive in those days. A new exhibit, Sewing a Native Truth: Seminole Fashion and Culture displayed the colorful patterns of Seminole clothing with outfits and dolls. Two 3-D films are currently showing at IMAG: Return to the Lost World with dinosaurs and Hurricane. A T-shirt in the gift shop with a Neil deGrasse Tyson quote says it all: The good thing about science is that its true whether or not you believe in it.IMAG History & Science Center, 2000 Cranford Ave., Fort Myers, 243-0043, theIMAG.org, Hours: Tues-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday noon-5 p.m., closed Mondays.

Starting in Unsinkable ON THE WATERFishing guides on the frontline for promoting clean water BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentFishing guides such as William Faulkner and Chris Wittman are on the front lines in the battles against toxic algae blooms and releases of water from Lake Okeechobee. They see it. They smell it. They speak out. The befouled water affects their livelihoods and Floridas economy and environment. Its spinning out of control, said Capt. Faulkner, an Everglades fishing guide who has guided for more than 25 years. The problem of toxic algae blooms extends far beyond the Southwest Florida coast and the Caloosahatchee and its estuaries. The stench of the dirty water has infested Cape Coral canals. Its also a problem on Floridas east coast in places such as the St. Lucie River. Capt. Wittman is on the board of directors of Captains for Clean Water. He knows what the toxic algae blooms means to what he and other fishing guides do for a living. It definitely impacts our business, Capt. Wittman said. Both guides know the impact extends far beyond their own wallets. The first paragraph of the 13-paragraph Captains for Clean Water founding statement on its website spells out the problem in stark words: On average, billions of gallons of nutrient-laden fresh water flow into our lower estuaries via the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers every day. ... The nutrients, and other pollutants, enter our waters through agricultural and urban areas in the center of the state, mostly north of Lake Okeechobee. Fishing guides spend a great deal of time on the water, both saltwater and freshwater. They cant help but see what is going on. There have been undeniable signs of diminished water quality all along the coast, Capt. Faulkner said.Fishing guides know their customers are well aware of the blooms and red tide. In many cases potential customers far away from Florida know about it through news reports and social media posts.They dont want to go out and be around it, Capt. Wittman said of potential tourists thinking about visiting a state where the algae blooms and red tide soils Florida waters. If the situation doesnt keep people away it may have another long-term impact on tourists. Cutting visits short, Mr. Wittman said. Fishing guides worry about what it will mean to their profession in particular and for Floridas prime tourism energy tourism. Its just a nightmare for fishing and tourism, Capt. Faulkner said. But, he added, his fishing business doesnt depend on random folks popping in or visiting his website. My business does not rely on tourism. Thats not the case with all guides. A big portion of fishing guide business is tourists, Capt. Wittman said. So, what is the future? The future is trying to identify a clear path to Everglades restoration, Capt. Faulkner said. He sees an example far to the north that could be encouraging. That example is Lake Erie. The Lake Erie Waterkeepers website notes that in the 1970s that Great Lake was said to have died. Lake Erie is now alive and vibrant and known as the Walleye Capital of the World. It was a wasteland, Mr. Faulkner said. Not now. That was just through proper management, Capt. Faulkner said. It certainly wasnt easy cleaning up Lake Erie but Capt. Faulkner is heartened to know how that body of water and its ecosystem were revived. Desperate measures have to be taken, Capt. Faulkner said. CAPTAINS FOR CLEAN WATER FACEBOOK PAGE PHOTOCapt. Chris Wittman stands on the bow for this photo from Captains for Clean Waters Facebook page. Pretty obvious that no real fishing was happening, they say.

COLLIER MUSEUM AT GOVERNMENT CENTER3331 TAMIAMI TRAIL EAST, NAPLES COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org My grandparents neighbors thought they were so lucky. They had bought nice antiques in the 1930s and s, kept them for a halfcentury, then sold everything for more than was paid for it 50 years before when they downsized from their Fort Myers home to a villa at Sun City Center, the retirement community in the Tampa Bay area. And you know what? The neighbors, Edith and Huntley Casey, were lucky. But they were lucky in part because they had chosen well to begin with. All the pieces the Caseys had, from an 1820s Federal-style cherry hutch to a pair of twin four-poster beds, fit as well in their California ranch bungalow as they had in the couples larger traditional-style former home in Alexandria, Va. That meant the furniture had a broad range of appeal and was of a scale that could be used anywhere from a condo to a manse. Then there was the quality if these pieces were not the best of the best, they were close to it, with original finishes and hardware. Over the years, they had done the scholarship on their antiques, going to quality shows and visiting with reputable gallery owners and antiques dealers so they knew what they were seeing. The market of today is very different from the market in which the Caseys were selling off their antique furnishings. I dont know that we necessarily can consider our antiques as investments, but I can promise you that you will receive a higher return on rarer, better quality art and antiques than you will on lesser pieces. Quality almost always wins out the Fostoria, Cambridge and Heisey department store-quality glass I collected in the 1990s has plummeted in value, with the more commonly found pieces that once fetched $50 and $100 sitting on the shelves of resale shops for months priced at one-tenth of that. But many of the Steuben and Tiffany pieces that were available at the same time have retained a much higher percentage of their value, often fetching at least half, if not all, of their 1990s prices. And even rarer pieces of the aforementioned department store-quality wares still command higher prices at specialty glass shows. So it goes in the world of collecting, where we downsize and edit, making room for more and better. That brings me back to the Caseys. They always chose well.

Paid: $250 The Skinny: So-called Vaseline, or uranium, glass glows when placed under a blacklight. This piece transports me back to my childhood, where each antiques show had at least one dealer who displayed the glass under a blacklight, so customers could see it eerily glowing from his or her booth. This 15-inch vase has a glow all its own, from its thick, pressed base to its outstretched rim. It was made by one of the Ohio or West Virginia glass companies in the 1920s or s my money is on Tiffin or Cambridge, though even the Depression glass experts arent sure. Its color is bright and light-grabbing, and its one of the largest pieces of the genre Ive ever seen. In collecting, value often is all about something being the largest, the smallest or the rarest. Ive never seen another piece quite like it, and that earns it a spot in my collection. THE FIND:A Vaseline glass vaseSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Vaseline glass vase stands an impressive 15 inches high. It dates from the 1920s or s. been doing some judicious pruning of my own, weeding out treasures that no longer interest me or no longer justify their space in my collection, often wishing I had been more judicious in my purchases. Some objects, like one of the largest Vaseline glass vases Ive ever seen, will make the cut. Others, like the fabulous Parian figure I since discovered has multiple repairs, probably will not make the cut after all, there is only so much room, and it is damaged goods. Still, Ive had much enjoyment from the piece, and it reminds me to examine objects in proper lighting that will highlight any damage and to remember that there often is a reason why that piece is still sitting in a shop at a ridiculously low price.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYClever covers, artfully designedI read an essay online a few weeks ago about book covers. The writer claimed she was seeing a new trend for womens novels: large, oversized sans serif type, as if the design was boldly shouting the titles. (And Id give you the reference if only I could find it again, so you could read it too, if you want.) But Ive been noticing a new trend lately, as I look at books online and in my local library and bookstores: titles covered over by objects in the background and/or foreground. Im not sure what the first one was that I noticed. Maybe it was The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin. The cover shows a tree whose limbs and branches weave through the title and authors name. Around the same time, I read Grist Mill Road, a creepy book about three friends and a childhood incident that scars them for life. (One friend ties another to a tree and shoots at her with a BB gun.) The stark cover shows the title and authors name wrapped in thick rope, as if the lettering themselves have been tied to a tree. When I was reading Tayari Joness An American Marriage, I studied its cover: a golden tree on a blue background. Like The Immortalists, some of the boughs covered over parts of the black-colored title, but unobtrusively. Then I began noticing this trend in other titles. The Chalk Man by CJ Tudor with its red background and black lettering has slanted slashes of white chalk marks over the title. Shobha Raos Girls Burn Brighter shows an explosion of red flames against a white background, the fire partially covering and beginning to consume the title. The Woman in the Window, by AJ Finn, is about an agoraphobic woman who spies on her neighbors, watching them from her windows. The cover has blue horizontal lines, like blinds, with the title in red behind them. The blinds near the word woman are slightly bent, as if a hand has pushed them down for a better view. Many titles have nature overtaking the words. The Honey Farm, by Harriet Alida Lye has what looks like sunflowers bursting through the white letters of the title. Then She Was Gone, by Lisa Jewell, The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy and The Queen of Hearts by Kimmery Martin all also have flower petals or flowers overlapping the titles. Some of Ms. Jewells other novels also have the same effect: The Girls in the Garden shows the white title being overgrown with ivy and bushes and The Third Wife, with a dining table post-meal the foreground, has dollops of whipped cream or pudding thrown at the title and wall. And her novel Before I Met You, whose cover shows a blue fire escape running down the front of a redbricked apartment building, plays with the yellow lettering, with stairs and a ladder, respectively, partially covering the first and last words of the title. Its bright and bold, using primary colors, and the way the designer made the background the foreground gives it dimension. Eden, by Andrea Kleine, looks as though moss or bark is growing over the title. Liz Nugents Lying in Wait shows a dead hand poking out of dirt; the dirt on the front and the leaves in the background peek over the titles white letting subtly, as if it too is almost coming out of the ground. Ive even seen the effect in a nonfiction book. Kirk Wallace Johnsons The Feather Thief: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century, has a cover filled with a close-up of iridescent feathers, some of the individual feathers slightly overlapping the white letters of the title as well as a label on which the subtitle looks as if its been typed on an old manual typewriter. Another beautiful cover is The Italian Teacher, by Tom Rachman. A story about the son of a master painter trying to find his own way in the world, the cover is an abstract swirl of thick, luscious paint over the white canvas lettering of title and authors name. The only touch that wouldve improved this cover is if the publisher had used canvaslike material for the book jacket, so you would feel the texture, as if the original canvas is exposed. These covers all do what great book covers are supposed to do: catch our attention, give us a sense of what the books about, and draw us in to read it. Our Kind of Cruelty, by Araminta Hall, is one of the more disturbing covers. (Yes, even more than the dead-handpoking-out-of-the-dirt cover of Lying in Wait.) Part of whats so chilling about the cover is that Im not sure how to interpret whats going on. Silvery objects slither about on the sinister cover as if theyre snakes, but they might be silvercolored metallic coils with blood on them. Its difficult to tell. Im betting on the latter, as some of the white lettering of the title and authors name are cracked, as if theyve been struck with the coils. Charles Finch in the New York Times Book Review called it a searing, chilling sliver of perfection May well turn out to be the years best thriller. I might have to read it. But only in the daytime.

COME TO OUR CONTRACT BRIDGEThinking things throughBY STEVE BECKERWhenever you enter the bidding, there is always a hidden risk. If your side fails to buy the contract, the information provided by the bids you have made may be used against you by the declarer. This, of course, should not be construed as advice against bidding; it merely states a fact of life that every bridge player must learn to accept. Take this case where Easts opening bid guided declarer to a successful line of play that he surely would not have found had East remained silent. After East had taken the K-A of spades and shifted to a club, South could see two more potential losers, one in diamonds and one in hearts. Ordinarily, he would have tried to avoid the heart loser by attempting a finesse against West. But since East had to have the heart king for his opening bid only 14 points were missing from the North-South hands the finesse was sure to lose. Declarer therefore chose a method of play that was not guaranteed to work, but at least offered some chance of success. He won the king of clubs at trick three, then cashed the ace of trumps and A-Q of clubs. Next came the A-K of diamonds, after which he exited with a trump. The situation South was hoping for now materialized. East won the heart but had to return a spade or a club, allowing declarer to discard his diamond loser as he ruffed in dummy. As a result, South made his game, losing only two spades and a heart. It is true that in order for this play to succeed, East had to have started with just two hearts and no more than two diamonds. But the welcome assist from Lady Luck would not have been possible had declarer failed to take advantage of what he had learned from the bidding.

BACK TO SCHOOL SPECIALSRelax and Refresh with our Full Range of Spa Treatments Buy a gift card for your favorite teacher or student FILM CAPSULES BY DAN HUDAKChristopher Robin (Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Bronte Carmichael) An adult Christopher Robin (McGregor) tries to keep his job, and his family together, when his old friend Winnie the Pooh (voice of Lee Cummings) finds him in London in need of help. The visual effects are impressive, but the story isnt really for kids or adults, and its pretty dull. Rated PG.Generation Wealth (Limo Bob, Tiffany Masters, Florian Homm) Documentarian Lauren Greenfield examines societys obsession with wealth, image and material possessions in this cautionary doc that raises more questions than it can answer. Still, its an intriguing watch for its naked honesty, especially from those who greatly desired wealth, had it, lost it, and now understand it didnt make them happy. Rated R.Mission: Impossible Fallout (Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson) Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team botch a mission, then have to save the world to make up for their mistake. The action is once again top notch, and the story has more twists than youre expecting. This is one of the best action franchises in movies today! Rated PG-13.Leave No Trace (Ben Foster, Thomasin McKenzie, Dale Dickey) A father (Foster) and daughter (McKenzie) live off the grid in Oregon, but things change when he is arrested for living on public land. Its a minimalist, fascinating study of an unusual but healthy father-daughter relationship that features solid performances from Foster and McKenzie. Rated PG.Skyscraper (Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Pablo Schreiber) A security expert (Johnson) must save his wife (Campbell) and kids from a fire on the 96th floor of the tallest building in the world. Its a clear riff on Die Hard and The Towering Inferno, but its entertaining enough to be worth a look. Rated PG-13.Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, James Cromwell) Claire (Howard) and Owen (Pratt) return to the setting of Jurassic World to evacuate the dinosaurs when a volcano threatens the island. The premise may be a bit different, but not much feels new, or fresh. Its a downer when you spend 128 minutes watching a movie and leave feeling like youve seen it before. Rated PG-13.American Animals (Evan Peters, Blake Jenner, Barry Keoghan) Four college students steal rare books from a university library in 2004. Watching these normal guys plan and execute a heist, and wrestle with their consciences along the way, is a fascinating expos of otherwise good people doing a bad thing. Rated R. Its a date!

YesOn its own, BlacKkKlansman is nicely acted, dramatically engaging and visually interesting. Its a good movie. This review is on the basis of those attributes, though it is clear director Spike Lee is aiming for far more profound (i.e., anti-right) social commentary, and he no doubt alienates half of the potential audience as a result. Many movies are intended as escapism; BlacKkKlansman is the exact opposite. Set in the early 0s, it follows a police officer in Colorado Springs named Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, Denzels son). Trying to prove himself as a detective, he calls the phone number included in a newspaper recruitment ad for the Klu Klux Klan. Hes convincing. They like him. They want him. Hes African-American. The ruse begins: Ron and his Jewish colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), attempt to join the KKK. Ron handles the phone calls, Flip appears in person. Their sergeant (Ken Garito) and chief (Robert John Burke) agree to the investigation in the hope of exposing potential crimes before they happen. The bulk of the suspense lies in Flip hanging with the KKK, hoping they dont find out hes not who he says he is, and hoping they dont find out hes Jewish. The KKK guys arent dumb caricatures, which is important: If they were fools we wouldnt be able to take them seriously, and if we couldnt do that there would never be a sense of danger for Flip when hes with them. Thankfully Walter (Ryan Eggold), the head of the local chapter, and the fastidious and untrusting Felix (Jasper Paakkonen), are all business (there is one buffoon among them, however the portly Ivanhoe (Paul Walter Hauser) is depicted as little more than a racist goof). Eventually Ron on the phone, and Flip in person, get to meet Grand Wizard David Duke (Topher Grace), and when they do the plot twists and danger amp up to an explosive ending. Lee includes his standard stylistic flourishes, such as the floating camera, and obviously the racism were used to in his movies is omnipresent. More importantly, he imbues the proceedings with a cryptic sense of fun, not at the KKKs members expense, but at the absurdity of the entire situation. Youll like Ron and Flip, and because you can laugh with them as well, the movie works. To those who say BlacKkKlansman is important, and that everyone should see it, check yourself. Whats important to you may not be important to others, and the reasons you think someone should see it may be the same reasons someone else hates it. Historically, movies have had the power to sway social belief, at least to some extent, but rarely has society been this politically polarized. And when theres such a stalemate that one side doesnt want to listen to the other, let alone believe anything the other is saying, its a stretch to assert that seeing BlacKkKlansman will have an impact on politics. It may, but its more likely that it will not. So what are we left with? A movie that is legitimately well made and acted, and tells a compelling story. Just dont expect it to be an escape from anything. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The lm won the Grand Prix award at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival; it is the second most prestigious award (after the Palm dOr) that the festival offers.

Now at his Pirate Palms wellness retreat in Golden Gate Estates, he offers people the opportunity to stay at his guesthouse to relax, eat well and learn how to shed pounds with healthy, delicious food. Read on to find out more. Q: What is your culinary background? A: I grew up with a mom who was an amazing cook. I was born in a small town in Texas and my mom had been raised in New Jersey and dined in the best restaurants in New York. I grew up with boeuf bourguignon and canard a lorange, but also with chicken fried steak and fried green tomatoes. I left home at 18 to live in a commune in Yakima, Wash. Thats where I really learned to cook for masses with very little. I learned to improvise and also became keenly aware that people have varied tastes and comfort zones. Pleasing the masses was a challenge that I loved. Q: How were you inspired to become a chef? A: I left the commune at 21, moved to Seattle and worked in a few restaurants. However, I found I needed a different venue to really utilize my skills. I opened two restaurants in Seattle, one called Mames, which was a cabaret with two seatings each evening, and Speedy Gonzales, where we pioneered homedelivered Mexican food in Seattle. Q: What brought you to Naples? A: My parents had been coming to Naples since the early 1970s, and I even had the opportunity to spend a year here as a kid. I loved it here. I collected coquinas for hours, and my mom would make me a cup of coquina broth. I learned to scuba dive and, of course, went to St. George and the Dragon for special occasions. We decided to move here in 2012 after my father died. Q: You have a varied culinary career that includes owning restaurants, writing books and hosting cooking shows on several networks. Why did you shift to offering a nutrition-based retreat such as Pirate Palms? A: As much as I love great food and wine, eventually it took a toll on my health. I thought I was just normal for being older and decided to go to the doctor for an annual check-up. I left that appointment holding prescriptions and a warning that I was obese with high cholesterol, high blood pressure and the risk of having either a stroke or heart attack. I began taking the blood pressure medication, which I was told I would have to take for life. I had some really nasty side effects from the medication and went on the internet to find an alternative. I received an email from a doctor who suggested a less restrictive diet so I could lose a few pounds and I could get off my medication in about 10 days. This made me mad. I had been on a diet since the age of 9 years old and I was tired of skinny people telling me what to do to lose weight. But I followed his regimen for 10 days and was taken off my blood pressure medication. During the first year I ended up losing 80 pounds eating lots of mashed potatoes and gravy. I just cut out dairy, meat, fish, eggs and oil. Q: How do guests benefit from a few days at Pirate Palms? A: We have different types of guests. We have guests who just want to stay in the private guesthouse and not utilize any of the culinary delights. We have guests who hire me for private chef services and they come to my home with a group for dinner. Its similar to what we did in Spain, but everything is whole food and plant-based with no oil. We also have guests who come to stay and want to eat our healthy menu for a few days. Lastly, we have guests who come for an afternoon with a group for a cooking class. Its all hands-on, and they get to enjoy the fruit of their labor. Q: Can you explain how starches support weight loss? Do you have to be selective about what kinds you consume? A: Many people have been taught that starches are bad for us and this is not true. The more rice, corn, potatoes, sweet potatoes and beans you eat, the trimmer and healthier you will be. You will help save the Planet Earth, too. All large populations of trim, healthy people throughout verifiable human history have obtained the bulk of their calories from starch. Only a few small isolated populations have eaten otherwise. Thus scientific documentation of what people have eaten over the past 13,000 years convincingly supports our claim. Q: The dishes you offer guests contain a wide variety of fresh vegetables and proteins. How do you create menu options that support health and wellness during a guests stay?A: People who come to Pirate Palms are on vacation. I interview our guests to ask what kinds of food they enjoy and their spice tolerance. My favorite was a guest who requested a bean burger that looks like hamburger and bleeds. This was accomplished by using a combination of beans and buckwheat flour and adding beetroot powder to create blood.Q: What do you find challenging? A: The challenge for me is creating food such as a non-fat cheese that still stimulates the brain receptors to cause pleasure. I have a Macaroni and PLEASE dish that even kids love. People say it tastes, looks and smells exactly like mac-and-cheese. What is missing is the oil. Q: What are your favorite culinary resources (books, blogs, etc.)? A: I mention several online resources in my third book, Confessions of a Starchivore. My second book, Kitchen Disasters, Solutions and Substitutions, has great resources for what to do when something goes wrong. Q: Who or what are your greatest culinary influences? A: Hands down, Julia Child. I would watch her every day after school and admired how easy she made seemingly complex meals. Also, when she had a souffle fail on air, she declared: Should your souffle fail you, you simply can declare it a mousse and none will be the wiser.
