the power of nature

As you gear up for summer with the kids (or grandkids) out of school and seasonal residents back up north, there is plenty of outdoor fun to plan. A wide and lush natural landscape surrounds us in Naples, and it’s always worth remembering that there is an added bonus to soaking it all up. Whether it’s gliding in a kayak through the mangroves or swamp-walking in the Everglades, spending time in nature has long been shown to help tamp down stress levels. Simply being among the greenery seems to deliver a restorative breath of fresh air that’s as good for the soul as it is for our health and happiness. In fact, among the several studies over the years that have touted these benefits, a small one conducted a few years ago…

NI: Do you have a connection to Southwest Florida? Grimes: My grandmother lived in Naples for a long time and we would visit when I was younger. I love Florida. My favorite animal is the manatee. How did your love of manatees come about? My grandma would send manatee postcards from Naples, so I started reading up on them. I loved that they were these bumbling, beautiful sea cows without any natural predators. I connected with their plight [protecting them from boaters] and it became a love for me. I even have a manatee painting in my room. My No. 1 goal when I get there [Marco Island] is to find the nearest manatee. I didn’t get to see one last time. What do you love most about your work? I love soaps. I think…

While movies have been filmed in Southwest Florida before, Rebeca Seitz is looking to build a film industry from the ground up in Naples. As president and CEO of SON Studios (sonstudios.org), she led the charge to film a TV pilot in Naples. The Neapolitan was shot last fall and, at press time, was being shopped around to networks with the expectation of a summer deal. The storyline is based on a novella Seitz wrote called First Blush. In the meantime, Seitz announced she has also entered into a first-look agreement with writer and director Brent McCorkle for the TV series Starlight, a follow-up to I Can Only Imagine, a film he co-wrote, co-edited, and scored, which hit theaters in March. Seitz expects to begin shooting the fantasy series pilot in…

heart of gold

While the Special Olympics is long known for empowering athletes with intellectual disabilities, Immokalee High School teacher Kelly Stevenson says it goes far beyond that for her students. Over the past 18 years, the Ave Maria resident has been a driving force in growing the Special Olympics in Collier County (specialolympicscollier.org). Stevenson was recently honored for her efforts when she was selected among 135,000 coaches as the Special Olympics North America Coach of the Year. Her passion and commitment, she says, comes from the big difference she sees in students with intellectual disabilities once they get involved in the Special Olympics. “When they walk down the hallway, they have friends and they don’t feel excluded anymore,” Stevenson says. “They are recognized at pep rallies and receive the same varsity letter, pin,…
