From the Publisher

It’s hard to believe it’s May. To all the year-rounders on the Paradise Coast, in years past the month used to signal what we considered the end of the season—and along with it, the longawaited opportunity to drive down Pine Ridge Road in less than an hour, a chance to get in to your hairdresser on a whim and find a parking spot within walking distance of the entrance to your grocery store. What May brings now is just the end of the major events of the social season. There is so much more to this area that has captured the hearts of our visitors that many are increasingly switching their part-time status to become full-time Neapolitans. Many have discovered what we’ve known all along, that Naples and the surrounding area have a great deal to offer when the charity events wind down. All of the fabulous restaurants (several new ones opened just this year), world-renowned golf courses, breathtaking beaches, exclusive art galleries, pristine parks and unlimited access to retail therapy are still here. Why would anyone want to leave? May also brings a very special holiday: a chance to celebrate mothers. As a mother myself, my pride comes with each and every one of my children’s accomplishments. My younger daughter, Alleigh, will graduate from Florida State University this month. And as we watch her accept her diploma, we realize that another phase of her life is about to begin. My husband, Michael, and I could not be more proud of the beautiful, caring and sensitive young lady she has become. As she continues her education in the medical field, we know that she will touch many a life along the way as she has ours. Congratulations to all those parents with graduating children, whether it be from kindergarten, boot camp or college. Every step is an accomplishment to celebrate.

From all of us at Naples Illustrated

Fast Forward

It is hard to believe this month marks two years since the passing of our beloved publisher

and friend, Ron Woods. Though his absence has left an enormous void, his vision is still very much a part of our culture. Since acquiring this company in 1991, Ron had big plans. Under his guidance, all of our magazines became leaders in their respective markets—thanks to an unyielding commitment to lofty production values, captivating and superbly illustrated content, and successful advertising partnerships—and remain firmly on that track today. Another of Ron’s goals was to continue to grow and to invest in the future—both through our products and our people. Just as he did, we cherish the team of creative individuals

who make this company what it is, and we enjoy watching them grow, both personally and professionally. As for our products, they’ve never been better or more prolific. We now publish 12 glossy magazines and three editorial websites and continue to explore new opportunities every day. But perhaps Ron would be proudest of our sustained commitment to the communities we serve. We live by Ron’s mantra that giving back goes hand in hand with success—in fact, in many ways

Words to live by Success is not what you have; it is what you give away.

it defines success. Since establishing the Naples Illustrated charitable program two years ago, we have made meaningful contributions to a variety of causes, from child advocacy to health to animal welfare. We see it as a beautiful, everlasting tribute to the man who gave generously yet quietly, and who touched the lives of so many. When looking to the future, it is imperative to bow to the past and learn from those who came before us. As we chart a course for going forward, Ron’s enduring legacy informs our actions and, more importantly, warms our hearts. Some things will never change.

Don’t let an ugly screen ruin your view of Paradise!

Outdoor Screens at the Touch of a Button!

Automated roll-up screens for residential and commercial applications are the newest technology for large openings. At the touch of a button they provide the ideal environment for insect, sun and/or privacy control. When the screens are lowered there is minimal reduction in ambient light, outward visibility and air flow while keeping out windblown debris, insects, and other pesky critters. When not in use they vanish to leave a completely unobstructed view of nature.

Riding the wave of victory, Hap Fauth, an accomplished sailor and Naples resident, heads back to the sea for the next of several worldwide regatta events planned this year aboard his Maxi 72 yacht, the Bella Mente. In February, Fauth and his international team of 26 sailors were declared the overall champions of the 2015 RORC Caribbean 600, a 600-mile race around 11 Caribbean islands. After tackling Les Voiles de St. Barth in the Caribbean in the spring, Fauth will take Bella Mente to the United Kingdom, where he and his team will set sail on the challenging waters of the Solent, the strait separating the Isle of Wight from England’s mainland, for two more races before starting the world-class Rolex Fastnet Race in August. “We finally have a rig in that is to our satisfaction and a crew that has been put together very carefully in terms of chemistry, ability and commitment, so it should be a good year for us,” Fauth says. “The Fastnet is a particularly hard and unpredictable race with cold-water conditions and a very difficult sea state, so it will take 100 percent of our efforts to be victorious.” —Anna Bjorlin

Steven Leonard

In his far too brief life, Steven Leonard, who perished in a fire in February, created a lasting, positive effect on countless lives in and around Naples. As his good friend and colleague William Boyajian, owner of Port Royal Jewelers, recalls, it was Leonard who initiated a kind of charity dossier years ago, amassing a broad list of local nonprofits that their company would support, from the Humane Society Naples, to the Sunshine Kids, the Naples Zoo, the Guadalupe Center, Opera Naples and many others. “He said, ‘We can’t be the biggest jeweler in town, but we can have the biggest heart,’” Boyajian says. Following Leonard’s tragic death, Boyajian felt the need to make something good out of a very sad situation, so he founded The Steven Leonard Diamond Award Program to honor and remember his friend and continue his community involvement. Each year, the program will award a sizable diamond to a different charity. The first was a 2-carat radiantcut diamond donated to raise money for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida’s Magic Under the Mangroves gala in March. “One of the things he really wanted to do was inspire people to do more in the community,” says Boyajian. “His scope ranged from doing a tiny event for a group that was very small to one that would raise hundreds of thousands of dollars. He never saw a difference. It was always about the charity. In a way, he’s still living through this legacy.” —Kat Smith 36

panther rescue

This summer, the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens (239-262-5409, napleszoo.org) will open a new Florida panther exhibit as part of an effort to provide care for injured panthers. Visitors will be able to see a 2-year-old male named Uno, who was blinded by a shotgun blast in Collier County and rescued by Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists. Since Uno cannot return to the wild, the zoo is creating a permanent home for him that will help expand awareness of Florida panther issues. Courtney Jolly, a spokesperson for the zoo, says, “It’s a great education tool for us to have Uno here, to show people how beautiful an animal he is, and impress on them the fact that something needs to be done to save this endangered species that’s native to our state.” The zoo’s plan also includes a habitat space designed to provide temporary care for injured or orphaned panthers, along with an all-new large animal veterinary clinic. “The goal for our habitat space is to rehabilitate panthers,” Jolly explains. “For instance, if we find dehydrated panthers, they can come here for 24 hours and we’ll take care of them before releasing them back into their natural habitat.” —A.B.

Team Work Amanda and Roy Clark

Great relationships can flourish with a certain degree of tension, as illustrated by husband-and-wife artists Roy and Amanda Clark, who specialize in a unique form of artistic collaboration. Amanda paints vibrant landscapes on sculpted brass, aluminum and stainless steel, and Roy uses a grinder to remove some of the paint to reveal the glimmering metal underneath. The finished work creates the illusion of depth and movement. The two showcase their original works of art in their new gallery, the Clark Art Studio (616260-1533, clarkartstudio.com) in Mercato. Their combined effort creates a dynamic tension that translates to beautiful works. “It’s definitely a challenge,” says Roy, “but there’s also a release in power involved. I trust her to do her thing, and we both empower and encourage each other.” The Clarks moved from Grand Rapids, Michigan, after several people suggested they bring their artwork to Naples. “We took the chance and moved here, and it’s been nothing but success and new opportunities for us,” Amanda says. “I hope Naples continues to embrace our artwork, and I want our marriage to be a testimony that hard work, communication and a common love can create something beautiful that truly affects others.” —A.B.
