CELEBRATING MOMS.

“My mother—who was nicknamed ‘Red’ by my father for her auburn hair—

was such an incredible influence in my life,” said Harris Rosen, President &

COO, Rosen Hotels & Resorts. “It was she who encouraged my brother and

me to become the first in our family to attend and graduate college. The

value she placed on education is what later prompted me to dedicate much

of my charitable endeavors to helping others achieve their own higher

learning dreams. Where would we be without the love of our moms?”

Mom. She’s taught you so much. She’s been your cheerleader, your

confidante. She’s home.

Moms are special, so Rosen Hotels & Resorts wants to make sure she

experiences a day to rival her greatness. Rosen Plaza, Rosen Centre and

Rosen Shingle Creek are all offering lavish Mother’s Day buffets and

unbeatable overnight packages where Mom can enjoy a truly stress-free

night. Relaxing spa packages at The Spa at Shingle Creek and The Spa at

Rosen Centre pamper her with the same gentle touch she shows to everyone

in her life.

This Mother’s Day, let Mom radiate as bright as the Orlando sun by treating

her to the ultimate local getaway. Whether for an hour, a meal or a day,

our Rosen family is eager to spoil your family’s matriarch like she was our

own. Raise a glass to Mom in one of our award-winning restaurants, fuel her

adventurous side with fun outdoor amenities, or simply wrap her in exquisite

luxury with exclusive menus and signature events.

Thank you, Orlando, for allowing Rosen Hotels & Resorts to be a part of your

family. It’s our turn to make sure your family has the perfect Mother’s Day.

Florida peach season is in full swing

this month and, depending on the season,

generally lasts until the end of

May or early June. While some may

argue that the best way to enjoy a

perfectly ripe peach is standing over

the kitchen sink with juice dripping

down your chin, there are almost endless

ways to savor one of the Sunshine

State’s favorite fruits. Slice them on flat

bread with arugula and goat cheese,

toss them into salads with grilled

chicken and avocado, pair them with

jalapeños in salsa or jam for an addictive

sweet-and-spicy combination,

or break out the ice cream maker for

a good old-fashioned taste of summer.

Selecting Your Fruit

Your nose is one of the best tools

for selecting peaches; that enticing

floral aroma is one indication of a

flavorful peach. Avoid peaches with

a green tint (under-ripe), wrinkled

skin (over-ripe) or bruises. Next, try

the touch test. A very hard peach

likely will never ripen. If it gives to

gentle pressure, it’s an excellent

choice for eating soon.

FOODIE FOR

How to Store

For peaches to ripen properly, store

them on the counter (not the refrigerator)

until the desired ripeness is

reached. To speed up the process,

place peaches in a brown paper bag.

When peaches reach the desired ripeness,

they can be stored in the refrigerator

to make them last longer. Allow

them to warm up to room temperature

before eating for full flavor. If you

are lucky enough to have too many

peaches to enjoy right away, freeze

them by cutting them into slices, giving

them a quick dunk in a lemon-water

bath to preserve color (1 cup water

to 1/4 cup of lemon juice), and placing

them on a cookie sheet. Freeze for

one to two hours so slices don’t stick

together, and then transfer to freezer

bags to be stored for up to one year.

Florida Fruit Shines in Both Sweet & Savory Dishes

& Excellence

THOUGHT

by Kirsten Harrington

Sweet or Savory

People tend to think of these luscious

fruits primarily for baking into pies and

cobblers, but peaches are delicious

in savory dishes as well. Try them layered

with turkey and white cheddar in

grilled cheese sandwiches or

diced and added to a chicken

stir-fry. Grilling peaches

intensifies their sweetness;

simply brush peach slices

with a neutral oil like canola

or grapeseed and grill on

medium heat until grill marks

appear, one to two minutes

per side. Serve them as a

side dish to grilled pork or

top with ice cream or ricotta

cheese and a drizzle of honey

for an easy dessert.

Drink It Up

The juicy, bold flavor of

peaches lends itself well

to refreshing cocktails and

smoothies. Whirl frozen

peaches in a blender with

vanilla yogurt and orange

juice or coconut milk at

breakfast time, or top peach

puree with sparkling water

and a dash of simple syrup

for a refreshing afternoon drink. Add

thin slices of peaches to your favorite

sangria recipe, or add 1 to 2 ounces

of peach puree to a champagne flute

and top with Prosecco and a mint

sprig for a perfect, sparkling, spring

cocktail.

Grilled Peach &

Mozzarella Salad With

White Balsamic Glaze

This beautiful salad is a twist on

the classic tomato-basil caprese salad.

Serve on individual plates with

a glass of sparkling wine for an elegant

appetizer or make a larger

version to serve on a platter.

Ingredients:

1 peach, cut into five slices

4 slices fresh mozzarella —

1/4-inch thick

1 slice prosciutto, torn into two

pieces

1 small handful of microgreens

or baby lettuces

1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped

For the white balsamic glaze:

1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon honey

Fresh peaches can be eaten in a variety of ways,

including on flat bread with arugula and goat cheese.

To make the glaze:

Heat balsamic vinegar and Dijon

mustard in a small saucepan over

medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring

often until thick and syrupy, and

liquid is reduced by half. Whisk in

honey. Set aside to cool.

For the salad:

Brush grill with oil and heat to

medium. Grill peach slices 1 1/2

to 2 minutes per side. Remove from

grill and arrange peach and mozzarella

slices in an alternating pattern

on plate. Lightly season with

salt and pepper. Top with torn prosciutto

pieces, baby lettuce and mint.

Drizzle with white balsamic glaze.

Serves one. ª

Guardianship Fraud - Elder Abuse Is On The Rise

by: Kristen M. Jackson / Attorney

According to the United

States Census Bureau, due

to the large number of baby

boomers, America’s 65-andover

population is projected to nearly double over the next three decades,

exploding from the current 48 million to over 88 million by 2050. And based

upon the population within each state, Florida has the largest percentage of

elderly persons.

Florida is already one of the largest strongholds for elderly abuse in

the US and because of the exploding elderly population one such abuse,

guardianship fraud, is on the rise. According to Florida Statutes, prior to

the appointment of a guardian, the court must find there appears to be an

“imminent danger” that the physical or mental health or safety of the person

will be seriously impaired or that the person’s property is in danger of being

wasted, misappropriated or lost unless immediate action is taken.

Imminent danger being the foundation of the fraud, is the con artist’s

or abuser’s tool to gain control over and exploit the elderly victim. So why do

these abusers do it? They do it for profit, of course. And what are some of

the signs of imminent danger used by such abusers?

The abuser, such as a family caregiver, may fabricate a belief that there

is a relative, a neighbor or even a stranger who is trying to take advantage

of the victim. Next is to convince the victim to execute a durable power of

attorney prepared by a lawyer so the caregiver can help the victim protect and

manage his/her assets. Likewise, the caregiver may convince the victim to

sign a durable power for health care to make medical decisions or acquire

prescriptions on behalf of the victim. The caregiver then may begin to

deplete the victim’s assets while simultaneously providing an overdose of

prescriptions in order to cause the elder to exhibit a lack of clarity by or

appear mentally incapacitated.

At this time, the caregiver may request an emergency temporary

guardianship which gives complete temporary control over the victim.

Why? Because the caregiver provided the means to demonstrate that the

victim exhibits signs of mental incapacity and is unable to make financial

and medical decisions and therefore manifests an imminent danger. An

emergency temporary guardianship expires 90 days after the date of

appointment and may be extended up to an additional 90 days provided

the caregiver can demonstrate emergency conditions still exist. Just

enough time to embezzle most if not all, of an elderly person’s assets.

In the initial stages of guardianship, an alleged incapacitated person

must be represented by an attorney. While the attorney may have had

good intentions in representing both the victim and the caregiver, the

entire legal system as a whole, including attorneys and the courts, is often

defrauded by an experienced elder law abuser.

Don’t let this happen to you. Avoid

elder abuse and guardianship fraud by

meeting with an estate planning and elder

law attorney today.

Imagine going to work every day

in beautiful surroundings with customers,

colleagues and clients who are

just like family. That’s what Connie

Emmerson says she has the privilege

to do each day. And, you’re invited

to come visit her outdoor oasis.

Connie is president of Royal

Landscape Nursery, a 6-acre,

outdoor garden facility owned and

operated by the Emmerson family. It

is Central Florida’s largest outdoor

plant and patio landscape showcase

and located at 2204 Hempel Ave.

in Gotha. Royal Landscape sells

both wholesale and retail-priced

foliage at 20 to 30 percent less than

the nurseries at big chain stores. The

company also delivers plants, trees,

sod, mulch and pavers directly to customers

in town or across the country.

Connie runs the business office

while her husband, Steve, is “the

creative one.” Steve Emmerson

handles commercial products and

installations for large properties, including

new housing developments

and apartment homeowner associations.

Royal Landscape Grows and Sells Foliage With a Personal Touch

Connie and Steve Emmerson (center) own and operate Royal Landscape Nursery.

They are joined by their daughters, Sophie (left) and Mia.

Mia “upped the business” and supervises

commercial maintenance.

It is uncertain whether college student

and younger daughter Sophie

will follow her sister, but ever since

she was able to reach the counter,

Sophie has helped out in the office.

The entire family is very hands-on.

When asked if working with your

spouse can be a challenge, Connie

replied, “We are celebrating our 25th

wedding anniversary this year, so you

decide.” She was quick to add, “It

helps that Steve is in the field a lot.”

Royal Landscape grows approximately

80 percent of what it sells,

thus enabling the company to keep

its prices low. The foliage is lovingly

grown on-site, and all plants are nurtured

to flourish in Florida’s climate.

Before leaving with their plants, customers

receive advice on care, installation

and design.

“Don’t take the baby home unless

you know how to feed it,” Connie

said.

The nursery also provides what

Connie calls “hardscape.” This service

features a variety of brick and

stone pavers for driveways and walkways,

pool areas, retention walls

and fire pits. The nursery even showcases

practical treatments for pavers

on its grounds. The use of these landscape

design accessories can’t help

but improve property value. In fact,

Royal Brick Pavers continually

wins accolades for its creative installations

and unrivaled ingenuity.

“As a person with fine attention

to detail myself, [Royal Landscape

Nursery] gets my vote of approval

and recommendation to anyone

with landscape needs,” Harold

and Patsi Peacock said. “We

are extremely happy with the beautiful

results of our new front and

backyards.”

Other services include commercial

landscape maintenance, new construction

installation and irrigation

services.

The nursery is a proud member

of the Florida Nursery Growers

and Landscape Association and the

Apartment Association of Greater

Orlando.

Visitors to the gardens are encouraged

to join the Royal Landscape

computer mailing list, which delivers

special discounts and pop-up,

secret offers directly to inboxes. If

you don’t have time to spend a few

relaxing hours in Gotha, gardeners

also can sign up for discounts by

visiting the company’s website at

www.royallandscapenursery.com.

There, guests can enjoy a virtual

stroll of the gardens thanks to stunning

photos of the nursery’s great

variety of plants in its showroom.

Website visitors also receive notifications

of special events and gardening

presentations. This year’s

2018 Spring Customer Appreciation

Weeks begin April 20 and run

through May 12. Those who join the

mailing list receive access to VIP discounts

during this sale.

The community-minded Emmerson

family lends its support and donates

to several local causes, including

Orlando’s yearly Taste of the Nation

“No Kid Hungry” event in support

of the Coalition for the Homeless of

Central Florida and Second Harvest

Food Bank of Central Florida.

Royal Landscape Nursery’s hours are Monday

through Friday from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. and

Saturday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. For more information,

PremierMED Family & Sports

Medicine isn’t just another cookiecutter

medical practice that filters patients

in and out, seeing as many as

possible. Instead, the physicians are

PremierMED’s providers include Dr.

Gary Visser; Heather Sheldon,

ARNP; Carolyn Knopfle, ARNP;

and joining the team is Dr. Ferdinand

Britts. Dr. Britts specializes in family

medicine and grew up in the Dr.

PremierMED focuses on general

medical needs, as well as sports medicine,

or joint injuries/pain. Most of

these joint injuries/pain can be treated

with specific therapeutic exercises,

which is why PremierMED has added

a new physical therapy service. The

physical therapy program is directed

by another local to the Orlando area

and a University of Florida Gator,

Beth Visser. As an avid runner and

physiotherapist, she understands the

importance of maintaining optimal

health and physical well-being.

To maintain a personalized and individual

experience, PremierMED increased

its available appointments,

is expanding in size and services,

and moved across the street from its

previous location to 2940 Maguire

On Feb. 21, the Central Florida

Hotel & Lodging Association recognized

Southwest resident and Orange

County Mayor Teresa Jacobs as the

association’s 2017 CFHLA Public Servant

of the Year. This annual honor recognizes

elected leaders who have championed

Central Florida’s tourism economy and

worked to advance hospitality industry

priorities.

During the course of her eight years

leading Orange County, Mayor Jacobs

has played an integral role in revising

the Venues Agreement to enhance essential

tourism and community projects, such

as Camping World Stadium, Dr. Phillips

Center for the Performing Arts, and the

Orange County Convention Center.

Additionally, Mayor Jacobs recently

spearheaded the development of both the

Orange County Tourist Development Tax

Grant Application Review Committee and

the Orange County Tourist Development

Tax Sports Incentive Committee. These

advisory boards will serve as important

checks and balances on the future

expenditure of Orange County Tourism

Development Tax funds, working to promote

the Central Florida destination.

During Mayor Jacobs’ time in office,

Orange County has experienced

record levels of visitation, with more

than 68 million visitors traveling to

Landis’ biggest

We knew Landis might come early. When

the day came, six weeks early, Dr. Gregor

Alexander came in and said, “I’m here with

my team to take care of you and your son.”

And as I watched him care for Landis,

I remember thinking, ‘If I’m not the first one

that gets to hold my baby, I’m glad that he is.’

For the next month, our life was the

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and an

extraordinary, compassionate team of
