embracing the journey

Every summer we dedicate this issue to the joy of travel, hailing the unbridled bliss of getting away from it all, whether that means a day trip to Doral to take a swing on new links or a month spent meandering in Monaco. This year, however, although we remain enthusiastic about great escapes, we invite you to view travel not just in a literal sense—trains, planes, and automobiles, if you will—but also through journeys of perspective. The Paradise Coast continues to pilgrimage forth in kindness and collaboration as it emerges from the pandemic, and Neapolitans are channeling wanderlust into virtual pursuits, cerebral distractions, and treks to help their neighbors. Starting on page 19 in Insider and also on page 74 in Eat + Drink, we salute just a fraction of the…

hometown heroes

Cooperation and kindness define the Paradise Coast, but altruism has become even more apparent as neighbors respond to a pandemic with unparalled generosity. Alliances include Community Foundation of Collier County grants to the Hunger & Homeless Coalition, Noah’s Ark Family Services Food Bank, Brighter Bites produce program in Immokalee, and many more through the Collier Comes Together Fund. Neapolitan largesse also is woven into masks made by local fashion designers Peter Jean Marie and Dominic Lacquaniti; reflected by advice and encouragement on Naples Strong social media pages; and demonstrated through countless collaborations between food suppliers and businesses determined to keep first responders fed. For more examples of grassroots grace, please turn the page…

from saddles to stem kits

Neapolitan nonprofits rallied to respond to the crush of needs created by COVID-19 and continue to be both creative and caring as the community moves forward. The League Club, for example, gave $16,500 to the Naples Therapeutic Riding Center, which provides riding lessons and equine-facilitated group services for children and adults with physical, social, and mental needs. The grant will provide scholarships as well as overall support for the center, which lost revenue after programming was suspended. Although the gift originally was earmarked for riding lessons, The League Club, which has awarded virus-related grants totaling more than $400,000 to 44 area nonprofits, made an exception. “Nearly all of our region’s nonprofits are experiencing disruptions to their programs and projects caused by the pandemic,” says League Club President Gigi Stewart. “Making these…

throwing shade: fpl solar canopies in naples

Those giant parking structures at the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens and North Collier Regional Park are shady business, to be sure, but they’re also doing much more than helping to keep your car cool. They’re generating energy. “People love solar, but most never get the opportunity to see what it looks like,” says Matt Valle, vice president of development for Florida Power & Light Company (FPL). “That’s because solar panels are typically out of sight at our 28 large solar energy centers located in rural areas. By integrating solar technology in urban settings, we’re inspiring millions of people to familiarize themselves with the renewable energy source that is playing a big role in how we power our state.” The two local high-visibility locations are among numerous Collier County sites participating in…

island exploration

Antique maps are treasures in and of themselves. While the passage of time can change topography, maps illuminate the mysterious pasts of places we thought we knew. Naples marine engineer Todd Turrell unpacks the geographic legacy of one of the state’s most beloved destinations in his new coffee-table book, The Florida Keys: A History Through Maps (Island Map Publishing, $120). A founding principal at the marine and environmental consulting firm Turrell, Hall, & Associates, Turrell has previously published two other books, Naples Waterfront: Changes in Time and A History of the Bahamas Through Maps. For his Keys tome, which was released in early March, he joined forces with professional map collector Brian Schmitt of Marathon and South Florida archaeologist Robert S. Carr. In addition to historic photographs and artifacts, the book showcases…
