three extraordinary people have
in common? The Community House
presents a new series over the next
three months Neighbor to Neighbor.
"We have an enviable array of outstand-
ing individuals living on our islands,
said Marge Meek, chair of the event
committee for the Sanibel Community
Association. "Showcasing their tal-
ents not only demonstrates what The
Community House is all about, but
also introduces the community to some
amazing neighbors.

Sanibel Historical Museum And Village
Docent Profile:
Dorothy
Donaldson
by Ray Buck
Docent Dorothy Donaldson is a
good one to have as your guide
when you get to the old post
office. She's done her homework.
"The post office at the museum village
represents the true pioneer spirit of early
Sanibel," she reports. From 1896 until
1926, the Post Office was operated out
of the Reed bay front residence. After
his home was destroyed in the 1926
hurricane, the postmaster, William Reed
Jr., went about collecting wood from the
also destroyed packing house to build the
'new' post office.
"If you look closely at the building,
you'll see that the sizes and widths of the
wood used in the building are not uni-
form. The history of the postal service on
island also mirrors Sanibel growth from
the 1880s to the present. During that
time there have been eight post offices
on the island," she notes.
"Most visitors when they see the post
office are amazed at how small it is,"
Donaldson says. "I try to let them know
that most of the business conducted
there was a one- or two-person opera-

most folks didn't come to
the building. I'm amazed
that the building survived
at all since it was replaced
by another building in the
1940s.
Dorothy and her hus-
band Aaron "discovered"
Sanibel in 1997, although
they had first visited in
1989, and began winter
renting a vacation that
made the rest of the
winter months in New
York City bearable. They
looked forward to retire-
ment and a house on the
island.
That happened, in
part, two years ago when
Dorothy graduated from
work, buying a house,
with her staying eight
months (Aaron's still
working but gets down for
the small town experience
they both love as often as Dorothy Do
n
work allows).
"This is a place where
you can be part of anything as long as
you are willing to volunteer your time,
Dorothy said. And she does. In addition
to her docent hours, she volunteers at

Lee County's methodology for deter-
mining the size of a home was highly
contentious during months of hearings
on a controversial application for a large
home in Chateaux Sur Mer. Some argued
that the county data cited by opponents
to the proposed Mimms' home was not
consistent with the way Sanibel measures
living space.O

Lee County May
Cut Six-Month
TOil PfOg ram
by Anne Mitchell
ee County is proposing to
eliminate the six-month Sanibel
Causeway toll discount program,
which would mean part-time residents
would have to buy the annual program.
In a letter to Sanibel Mayor Mick
Denham, Paul Wingard, deputy direc-
tor of Lee County Department of
Transportation, says the move would
"eliminate our renewal spike in April and
it allows us to pursue a rolling renewal
enodinIn doin r hhi sensonermu
any time, for one year, thus leveling out
the renewal spike we currently get in
October.
As of October 9, 1,959 people were
in the six-month discount program, while
1,881 were in the annual program,
according to data from LeeWay, which
administers the toll system.
The proposed change will be discussed
at the Sanibel City Council meeting on
January 5. The county also proposes
eliminating the motorcycle discount so
that motorcyclists will pay the same as


automobiles and other two-axle vehicles.
"This makes us consistent with the bal-
ance of the state of Florida and allows us
to provide transponders for motorcycles,
Wingard said.
Mayor Denham wrote to Wingard that
the city council would discuss the pro-
posed changes, adding, "I remain inter-
eshid fu@ discussion agt ding an
tively impact the bridge and roadways.'G

Erosion Project
Starts Monday
n order to avoid bird and turtle nest-
ing seasons, the City of Sanibel's
Lighthouse Beach sand placement
project will begin on Monday, January 4
at the bayside beach of the Lighthouse
Beach Park adjacent to the fishing pier
and includes placement of approxi-
mately 5,000 cubic yards of sand on
the bayside beach. In order to minimize
inconvenience to the public, the proj-
ect is scheduled to be completed in 20
days.
Due to the dangerous nature of the
sn ep m ne ktthheedbu d ach
the project, and the road from the fish-
ing pier parking lot to the lighthouse will
need to be temporarily closed to all traffic
during certain construction activities.
The city has contracted with Eastman
Aggregate Enterprises LLC to perform
this work at a cost of $175,222.92
(fully funded through a Lee County
Tourist Development Council grant).
Construction hours for this work are 7
a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday
and some Saturdays.

COnC6f ROS60fCh Foundation
by Jim George
Pennsylvania Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper announced last week that the
Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation in Erie, Pennsylvania has been awarded
$700,000 in funding through the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS) to help develop the novel radio frequency wave cancer treatment
championed by the late Pennsylvania and Sanibel resident John Kanzius.
"John Kanzius envisioned an innovative treatment for cancer that has the potential
to save thousands of lives," said Dahlkemper. "I am proud to support the mission of
the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation and help secure federal resources for the
Kanzius non-invasive radiowave cancer treatment project. Radio frequency treatment
research brings hope to millions of people diagnosed with cancer.
The funds will be used to purchase critical laboratory) equipment for observing cells
before and after using the Kanzius radio frequency device and for confirming labora-
tory results. Some of the laboratory equipment includes a dynamic light scattering
instrument, cellometer, flow cytometry laser upgrades and ICP mass spectroscopy.
Recent weeks saw a spate of growing support for this new technology:
In October, the National Cancer Institute announced that it would allocate $2.1 mil-
lion over five years for research on the Kanzius machine, which has been shown to
completely kill cancerous tumors in animals. The NCI grant is intended to spur innova-
tive cancer research.
Collaborative research at Rice University, MD Anderson Cancer Research Center,
the University of Texas and Harvard University/Massachusetts General Hospital will
target liver cancers.
Earlier this month, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic
Development awarded $500,000 to help build the machines for use on humans.

These islands are fortunate to have
people who want to make a dif-
ference. Craig Albert is one of
those people. Somehow, he finds time
between work as the president of The
Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, his
family, and sports, to be one of the six
people stepping up to dance for votes
(donations) for this season's fundraiser
Dancing with the Islands' Stars. His
dedication (his friends call it craziness)
reminds everyone to participate to sup-
port The Community House by voting
(donations add up to 50 percent of each
star's score now through to the event
night, Saturday, January 23.
His arch rival Billy Kirkland is his main
focus. Albert says he is not going to lose
to Billy. In order for that to happen, he
has to raise a lot of money.
His instmetor Lindsay Rindenour from
Fred Astaire Dance Studios has chosen
the West Coast Swing for him. She said,
This is not an easy dance to learn, in
fact this is the most difficult to perform
when compared to the other perform-
ers, but Craig has really picked it up. He
is turning into a vey good dancer and
he has surpassed my expectations for a
beginning dancer.
Fred Astaire Dance Studios has donat-
ed many, many hours of instruction to
make sure the six dancers are prepared
to compete. The dancers have been driv-

Once again I want to thank the

Friday Are

For Grownups
The once a month-special event,
First Friday Stories for Grownups,
is set for the first Friday of the
month in season. Since the New Year
holiday is on the first Friday, the group
will meet on Friday, January 8.
Join in for Stories for Grownups at
2 p.m. in the Sanibel Public Libray.
This month, the featured story teller is
Dr. Sidney B. Simon, professor emeritus
from the University of Massachusetts, and
an internationally known authority in psy-
chological education.
Author of 15 books in the areas of
values clarification, getting unstuck and
forgiveness, Simon is also the author of
two children' books, written for his own
kids when they were little. WW Norton
published them in the late '60s.
Simon has appeared on various talk
show programs, including oprah and
the donahue show. He tells good stories
because he is witty and wise, and he also
has the knack for drawing stories from
people in the audience. That's half the
fun, and half the program. Come and just
listen, or come with a story you might get
a chance to tell.
It's a friendly place to be. You will be
greeted by two story lovers, Beth Gillis
and Sylvia Chamberlain, members of the
Stories for Grownups Committee. Come
early. Some months, it's standing room
only. Call the library if you have any
questions at 472-2483.4

to nurture the mind and comfort the soul.
Religion in the second half of life is
not just for shoring us up against the fear
Pf dying. It is the time to turn toward
inner and spiritual life and develop a spiri-
tual practice, which is a good prescription
for any stage in one's life.
Asked about the gloomy subject mat-
ter, Morrow said, "It's already in our
psyche. The American fascination about
death is all around us. We watch sev-
eral deaths an hour on prime-time TV,
including high definition human corpses
in disarray and decomposition. A great
number of the top ten best selling books
are mysteries involving death. It is as if
we must revisit the great mystery of death
over and over in order to get our brains
around the disturbing idea. Every brand of
religion has a central theme about death.

children, Erin Miley, Meggie Miley, and
Daniel Decina. All of his family, friends
and devoted former employees will
remember Lutz with love and respect.
The zoological community will
remember Lutz Ruhe not only for his
own achievements, but as the last of the
dynamic Ruhe family.
Memorials in Lutz' name may
be made to Hope Hospice, 9470

Interment will be in Missouri. O

from all over the world before they were
shipped to zoos and parks.
The Ruhe family firm's branch office
in New York City had been managed by
their Uncle Heinz Ruhe and in 1953,
upon Heinz' death, Lutz and his brother
Heiner came to the states to run the
branch office. They created a travel-
ing baby zoo in the early '60s which
opened with much success in Boston,
Massachusetts. They were approached
by the movie industry to bring the Baby
Zoo to the west coast (Van Nuys and
Los Angeles.) They partnered with Louis
Gobel in 1962 to operate Jungle Land in
Thousand Oaks, California. While there,
Lutz supplied animals for movies and TV
shows, such as The Beverly Hillbillies
and Mr Ed. Later, they moved the mobile
Ruhe Baby Zoo to San Francisco where it
was a great success. In 1965, the broth-
ers negotiated a contract with the city of
Oakland, California to build and operate
a permanent Children's Zoo in Knowland
Park. Five years later, they acquired a
300-acre parcel of land and opened
Safari World in Coarsegold, California. In
1973, Lutz rebuilt the City of San Jose's
Children s Zoo in Happy Hollow Park


ROBERT GEORGE BAUMLER, JR.
Robert George Baumler, Jr., of
Sanibel, Florida and Spring
Lake, New Jersey, husband of
Joan Tobin Baumler, passed away on
December 21, 2009, after a brief battle
with lung cancer. He was 82 years old.
Bob was born in Glen Ridge, New
Jersey, son of the late Robert G.
Baumler, Sr., and Katherine Mehrtens

outstanding high school athletics career.
He played three sports football, bas-
ketball, and baseball, but excelled in
baseball. Bob was sought after by many
major league teams and signed with the
Boston Red Sox during his junior year at
the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton
School, from which he graduated in
1951. At Penn, he was a member of
Beta Theta Pi fraternity.
He spent three years in the Red Sox
organization, fitting in college in between
the baseball season, until a rotator cuff
injuy cut short his baseball career.
Publisher Walter Annenberg then
asked Bob to join his new magazine, TV
Guide, then in its infancy. He spent 35
exhilarating years in New York City, help-
ing to build the magazine in to a giant
success. At one time it was #1 in both
advertising sales and circulation, and at
his retirement was its director of advertis-
ing sales.

IT S NOT JUST A CHARM


LUTZ RUHE
utz Ruhe, husband of Donna
Ruhe, passed away peacefully at
his home in Sanibel, Florida, on
December 17, 2009, after a long strug-
gle with congestive heart failure.
The care and preservation of ani-
mals was Lutz' passion in life. His vast
knowledge was gained from hands-on
experience: catching animals in Africa
and other parts of the world; transporting
them by ship and plane to zoos all over
the world; and operating children's zoos
that allowed children and adults close up
and personal interaction with the animals.
He was a builder, designer, and a vision-
ary.
Lutz was the fourth child born to
Hermann and Christa Franke Ruhe on
July 5, 1935, in Hannover, Germany. He
was preceded in death by his parents, his
sister Christel Ruhe Wormit, and brothers
Hermann and Heiner Ruhe. He was the
fourth generation of the prominent firm
of Ludwig Ruhe, exotic animal dealer
in Alfeld/Leine, Germany. His great-
grandfather Ludwig Ruhe started the
firm as a canary business in the 1840s
in Gruenenplan, Germany. In 1865, his
grandfather established an office in New
YorkInCilty9 d the jmf ous Ruhe,
Reiche's animal business in Alfeld and
the business moved from Gruenenplan
to Alfeld. That same year, the Ruhes
bought a "farm in Queens, New York
to further expand their firm into a world-
wide import and export animal business,
supplying animals to zoos worldwide.
Also, in 1904, a large two-block animal
compound was built in Alfeld to accom-

Mize said the diary is a valuable addition
to the Holocaust Museum.
"Up until 2003 in the simplest terms
4 a possible, the world was ignorant of pre-
cisely what is an unrecognized American
hero of the Holocaust."
McDonald was convinced years before
many of his contemporaries that Hitler was
/ not just a passing phenomenon, but was a
--' great danger to the Jews. I asked if anyone
listened to him? "To an extent. He certain-
ly told President Roosevelt about it while
he was still governor of New York and run-
: ning for president. The diay entries reveal
that when Roosevelt was running for the
presidency, McDonald visited him and gave
a briefing as to what he felt the situation in
Germany was.
Mize explained what he hopes people
will learn from his talk. "I would like
them to understand that the situation is
extraordinarily complex, and one cannot
understand the Holocaust or World War II
without looking at the historical context as
both the war and the Holocaust.

makers, especially with regard to keeping

driven by economic fears. There was con-
cern that the U.S. would be taking on masses of unskilled labor and that these people
would become wards of the state and create economic pressure. It's important to know
that there were Americans who did understand what was going on and did everything
in their power to alert high ranking officials. There were Americans who did behave in
heroic fashion.
The first two volumes of McDonald's Diary have been published with a third to fol-
low soon. The talk by Stephen Mize is sponsored by Congregation Bat Yam Temple
of the Islands, Sanibel Congregational Church, and the United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum. Mize will take questions following his talk.

History: The Diary of James G. .
McDonald.
As the first U.S. ambassador to Israel, McDonald
witnessed many of the defining moments of the 20th
century and meticulously recorded his extraordinary
insights in a diary that eventually filled more than
10,000 pages. During a recent phone conversation
with Mize, he spoke about how the diary was discov-
ered. "It came by way of an unsolicited donation in
May 2003. A Washington, DC lawyer for the U.S.
court system stumbled upon a small part of the diary
while cleaning out her basement. Knowing it dealt
with the Holocaust, she gave it to us."
Mize talked about how the diary affected him
historically, after reading it. "I was flabbergasted,
thunderstruck, even reading the small fragment. James McDonald and his daug

NOW YOOf'S ROSO UtiOns At The Market
by Jean Baer and Betsy ventura
Each year we find
it harder and
harder to live up
to all of the resolu- '
tions we make, so we
thought that just maybe
we could all cut our-
selves some slack and
create some resolutions
that are certain to stick and to make us happy and healthy in 2010
1. We will talk with a produce vendor to select a different vegetable each week and
learn how to create an exciting and healthy new dish.
2. We will add color to our lives with a bouquet of fresh cut flowers or a beautiful
blooming plant.
3. We will travel by bike enter the drawing and keep our fingers crossed that we
will be the winner of a new two-wheeler from Billy s Bike Shop.
4. We will stop by the friend s of the market booth and support local businesses,
not just those at the market, but all businesses here on the islands.
5. We will support the weekly non-profit and learn about its mission and what
it does to better serve the residents, wildlife and precious land here on Sanibel and
Captive. We will ask how we can help.


6. We will try new foods like freshly made basil pasta, crab cakes, homemade pota-
to salad r i plants with a fresh dose of worm poop.
8. We will remember our dog and bring him/her home a treat. Maybe our families
too.
9. We will treat ourselves to a frozen latte, a scrumptious cupcake, or a fresh slice
of cheesecake. (After all, we did ride our bikes).
10. Lastly, we will enjoy the beautiful weather this season, the camaraderie of
friends, and the privilege of living on these beautiful islands.
Happy New Year!#

as an opportunity to promote conservation while fishing. He encourages his guests to

to escape fish-eaters like dolphins and
cormorants. This gives the fish a bet-
ter chance of survival and prevents the
dolphins and cormorants from relying on
fishermen for food.
One of the species Capt. Tom loves to
catch in Tarpon Bay is the snook which
he says fight like no other backwater fish.
He prefers fishing in the refuge on an
incoming or outgoing tide. He suggests
finding a deep hole on the bottom of
the bay or a place where there is deeper
water close to the shoreline. Of course,
Capt. Tom likes to fish outside the refuge
as well, he enjoys offshore trips in the
gulf and even heading up to Canada to
catch walleye.

fish, he chooses a simple, but delicious
way to grill it up for dinner He likes to

When asked for a good fish tale
Capt. Tom says he could write a book.
The one tale that stands out in his mind is
about an 82-year-old woman who came
along with her family on a fishing excur-
sion just for the ride. He encourages all
of his passengers to join in on the fishing,
and was able to persuade the woman to
give it a try. She quickly tied into a good
size snook which she fought for about 20
minutes, asking for help the whole time.
Capt. Tom likes to give guests the thrill
of landing their own fish so he simply
offered her verbal assistance and reassur-
ance. He joined the woman in an exuber-
ant celebration and they are still friends
- exchanging Christmas cards even to
this day.

Tamiami Trail Project Ushers In
New Era Of Everglades Restoration

to the right in the photo (which would be to the north) but that the land to the left, the
Everglades, is dry.
by Rae Ann Wessel, SCCF Natural Resources Policy Director
Twenty years ago, in December 1989, Congress approved the Everglades
National Park Protection & Expansion Act authorizing improvements to
restore natural hydrologic conditions and water flows to the park. On Friday
December 4, 2009, I was able to attend the project groundbreaking to celebrate '
progress that is fundamental to changing water flows throughout the Greater
Everglades including the Caloosahatchee and estuary.
Tamiami Trail was built in the 1920s, the first cross-Florida road to link Tampa
and Miami. The Trail was seen as critical to the future growth of South Florida and

the region, especially the fledgling city of Fort Myers. The road's name Tamiami -
is a contraction of the two metropolitan areas it links. The construction of the road
through the historic Everglades was, like so many things of that time, an engineering
marvel that was celebrated as a major achievement.
The unanticipated consequence of the road is that it is an enormous barrier to
water flow south and greatly reduced water flow into Northeast Shark River Slough,
located in the northeastern corner of Everglades National Park. Other impacts of the
road include changes to flora and fauna from changes in water flow and staging of
water The redistributed flows have also deprived Taylor Slough, located to the south,
of water needed to feed eastern Florida Bay.

Water Delivery Restoration Project. This
involves building a one-mile bridge to
elevate a portion of the trail and raise and
reinforce an additional 9.7 miles of road-
bed to allow higher water levels in the
adjacent L-29 Canal. Higher water levels
in the canal will drive flows into the park
when water is needed most. The remain-

ing 9.7 miles of roadbed will be elevated
in a future phase of the project
Removal of the barrier created by
U.S. 41 must be accomplished so that
water flow can be restored south out of
Lake Okeechobee. This, in turn, will help
to reduce damaging discharges to the
Caloosahatchee and St Lucie estuaries.
In attendance to celebrate this
momentous event were Secretary Ken
Salazar, U.S. Department of the Interior;
Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary
For The Army For Civil Works Terrence
(Rock) Salt; Commander of Jacksonville
District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Colonel Al Pantano; Secretary of the
pirortidatiDep cmeentSoole nvi r2en1f the
South Florida Water Management District
Governing Board Eric Buermann; Florida
Representative Mario Diaz-Balart and Lee
County Commissioner Ray Judah.
In 2008 the project was projected to
cost $200 million. However one bright
side of the economic downturn is the
project was able to be contracted for less
than half that, at $81 million. The proj-
ect is funded by the Department of the
Interior and construction will be managed
by the Army Corps of Engineers. It is
anticipated the project will take four years
to build.#

Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Society
Kicks Off 2010 Lecture Series
The Sanibel Captiva Audubon
Society launches its 2010 lecture
season on Thursday evening,
January 7 with a presentation entitled
A Marriage for Nature: Archie and
Marjorie Carr and Their Fight to Save
Wildlife and Wild Lands. Join Florida
State University Professor Frederick
"Fritz" Davis as he enlightens the audi-
ence on the Carrs' fascinating lives.
Illustrated with numerous photographs,
the lecture will celebrate the unique part-
nership between two of Florida's great-
est advocates for the environment.
Married for 50 years, Archie and -
Marjorie Carr have been called "Florida's
First Couple for Conservation." As a
professor of biology at the University of
Florida, Archie Carr studied the ecology,
migration, and conservation of sea turtles.
He advocated for their conservation in
Florida, the Caribbean, and beyond with
the Caribbean Conservation Corporation.
Also a biologist, Marjorie Carr conducted
research and traveled with her husband.
However, she is best known for her Frederick "Fritz" Davis
efforts with the Florida Defenders of
the Environment to save the Ocklawaba River from a proposed Cross-Florida Barge
Canal
With a PhD, M.Phil and MA in the history of science and medicine, a MS in biol-
ogy and a MA in the history of science, Fritz Davis is an associate professor of history
at Florida State University. Fritz's parents, Dan and Judy Davis live on Sanibel and are
recognized by many conservation organizations for their unselfish participation and
appreciation of all conservation objectives. It is no wonder that their son has followed
in their footsteps. Even more amazing, Fritz has found time to write many academic

The data collected during the annual counts which span North America and
beyond are critical to studies of the long-term health and status of bird populations.
Such data is used to protect birds and identify environmental issues with implications
for people as well, according to Audubon. The STAs, managed by the SFWMD, also
provide the public with a variety of recreational opportunities, such as hiking, biking
and excellent bird watching.
During the 109th Christmas Bird Count, Audubon teams in STA-5 and the sur-
rounding area documented 112 species and more than 92,600 birds.
If you plan to attend RSVP to Margaret England at 863-517-0220 or by email at
sta5birding@embarqmail.com. For more information on recreational opportunities visit
www.sfwmd.gov/recreation.4


Join in for the 110th Christmas Bird Count beginning at 7 a.m. Saturday
January 2 at storm water treatment area (STA) 5. STA-5 is located on
Blumberg Road in Hendry County, 12 miles south of the intersection of
Blumberg and County Road 835. Blumberg Road ends at the gate after 10 miles of
asphalt and two miles of dirt. Everglades stormwater treatment areas are renowned
bird-watching havens
Stormwater treatment areas (STAs) are the water-cleaning workhorses of Everglades
restoration. They have also become renowned havens for wildlife and outdoor enthu-
siasts alike. The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is joining with
the Hendry-Glades Audubon Society as the group conducts its portion of the 110th
Christmas Bird Count in STA-5. This is the Hendry-Glades Audubon s third year con-
ducting the count at STA-5.

The newly engaged David Rubinow and Jamie Tepper return to shore after their romantic
paddle through the mangroves at Tarpon Bay
Looking for a romantic place to spend the day with your sweetie or maybe
even pop the question? That's exactly what David Rubinow from New York
as doing when his search brought him to Sanibel. He was looking for a nice
place to take his girlfriend Jamie Tepper from Miami for a romantic post-holiday
vac o nday December 27, the couple headed out to Tarpon Bay Explorers in The
JN "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge to paddle a kayak through the mangrove
tunnels of the Commodore Creek Trail. While they were out there, Rubinow found a
quiet, out of the way place for a picnic lunch in their kayak. During lunch, he asked
Tepper to marry him. She said "Yes" and when the newly-engaged couple returned to
shore, they shared their happy news with the Explorers' staff.
The couple met a year and a half ago in California, and in August Rubinow moved
from New York to Miami to be with Tepper.
The Explorers wish them the best and thank them for celebrating such a happy
moment in Tarpon Bay.0

The opening of trout season does not
bring the same anticipation for me as
the opening of snook season, but trout
continue to be the most popular species
of game fish in our state. The harvest of
trout is closed in our area November and
December.


Trout regulations are: Not less than
15 inches or more than 20 inches except
one fish over 20 inches per person with
four per day per person being the limit.
Trout can be caught with a variety of
baits/artificials and the colder months
seem to be the better months to fish for
this species. Clear days with clear water
seem to be the best days to catch trout
out on the flats. Look for flats that are
between three and five feet deep with a
mix of grass and sand bottom. Drifting
the flats throwing a soft plastic jig is usu-
ally how I locate these fish.

What a catch! Eight-year-old Jesse Burns from Salida, Colorado caught
this snook (number five) fishing in the bay waters of Sanibel Island on
November 24. He used light spinning gear and live minnows for his prize
catch. Jesse, along with his father, Brian Burns, and grandfather, Bill Burns, were
fishing with Captain Jeff Zasadny of Gulf Pro Charters from Jensen's Marina.
At 4:30 p.m. on that clear and sunny afternoon, the snook were hitting all the

4: True or false: Artificial reefs to be
constructed in federal waters must be
permitted by the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers.
Answer: True. The U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers is responsible for permit-
ting artificial reefs in federal waters; these
permits can take six to nine months to be
approved. Individual state agencies may
have their own permitting processes as
well. Among items included in the permit-
ting plan are placement, size and design
of the reef.
5: True or false: Artificial reefs are the
solution to our beach erosion problem.
Answer: False. Artificial reefs are
designed to absorb the impact of large
ocean swells, allowing sand to fall out of
suspension behind the reef. While they
are not a magic bullet solution for all
beach erosion problems, they can be use-
ful to curb erosion at specific hot spots.

ing, diving and fishing. Another benefit is
that reefs are mostly submerged underwa-
ter and do not degrade the natural beauty
of the beach.
2: True or false: The U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers considers artificial
reefs an innovative approach to retaining
sand.
Answer: True. The corps has recently
OK d the use of artificial reefs in Solana
Beach, California as part of efforts to
preserve the adjacent sandy shoreline.
Although this concept has been gaining
in popularity around the world, the U.S.
has been slow to implement it. One of


the most famous artificial reefs in the
world is the Narrowneck artificial surf reef
at the north end of Surfers Paradise on
Australia s Gold Coast.
3: What kinds of materials are artificial
reefs made of?
a) Geotextile fabrics.
b) Natural rocks.
c) Artificial rocks.
d) All of the above.
Answer: D. Due to environmental and
public safety concerns, artificial reefs must
be constructed of heavy, stable, durable
and nonpolluting materials. They are
often constructed from geotextile contain-

Artificial Reefs. *

Artificial reefs serve as more than
simply habitats for oceanic creatures.
They also provide shore protection and
enhance the surfing experience. Take
this ASBPA quiz to see how much you
know about artificial reefs.
An artificial reef is an underwater
structure made by man. Many
people think artificial reefs are
only for fish; although they used to be,
times are changing. Artificial reefs are
now being utilized to slow beach erosion
and, as coastal scientists and engineers
have discovered, the benefits are numer-
ous. Read on and take this quiz to learn
more
1: What are the benefits of artificial
reefs?
a) Reefs provide increased shore pro-
tection.
b) Reefs enhance surfing, fishing and
diving.
c) Reefs enhance marine life.
d) Reefs are submerged and located
offshore.
e) All of the above.
Answer: E. Artificial reefs do more
than simply provide habitat for marine
life. Coastal engineers have learned
through experimentation that, if engi-
neered properly, artificial reefs can also
reduce shoreline erosion and enhance
recreational opportunities, including surf-

BIG ARTS opens an exhibit
Wednesday, January 6, which
celebrates art created by sculptor
Charles Reina. Sculpture for Public
and Private Spaces exhibit will show-
case original maquettes and final instal-
lation photographs of Reina's sculp-
ture. An artist's reception will be held
Saturday, January 9, from 5 to 6:30
p.m
Reina, professor emeritus in the
art department at Nassau Community
College and former director of the
Firehouse Galley there, is well estab-
lished in the Long Island arts community
and beyond through his extensive record
of exhibitions and public commissions.
It has been said that Reina's bronze
sculpture with its echoes of organic form,
seem to become part of the environment
it inhabits.
He has created large scale sculpture
for many schools and other public build-
ings as well as sculpture for many private
collections. Among his better known
works is the 12-oot Bronze Helix cre-
ated to honor Dr. James Watson on the
occasion of the 40th anniversary of the
discovery of the DNA molecule. Recent
public works include four sculptures cre-
ated for the Schnormeier Gardens of
Gambler, Ohio, and one for the new lab-
oratoy building of Molecular Innovations
of Novi, Michigan, completed in 2008.

Playing
Shakespeare
Writers, poets and drama buffs
are invited to open meetings at
Lexington Country Club in Fort
Myers on January 7 and 21 to view an
extraordinary film, Playing Shakespeare,
written and narrated by John Barton of
the Royal Shakespeare Company in the
'80s. It features famous actors such as Ian
McKellen, Judy Dench, Patrick Stewart
Signed Cusack and Ben Kingsley. '
Soon-to-be stars, these actors meet
and face the challenge of performing
Shakespeare's 16th century verse and still
strike a balance with contemporary lan-
guage. We learn how metaphors provide
clues for interpretation and listen to two
different actors as Shylock and to several
versions of famous soliloquies. It is thrill-
ing and instructive to see and hear how
these young players bring memorable
poetrytolife.
Admission is free. If you plan to attend
both or only one session, call Hal Cantor


482-5097 or Joe Pacheco, 472-1280
to resente and/or get directions to the
Lexington clubhouse. Screening on both
days begins at 1 p.m. Arrive at 12:45 or

The Cast of Opus photo by Chip Hoffman


Florida Repertory Theatre announc-
es the area premiere of Opus,
gripping new drama by Michael
Hollinger. Opening Januay 8, Opus
focuses on a world famous string quartet
during the tense days leading up to their
most important performance. It is a play
about art and artists that exposes the
flesh and blood behind all great art. "This
is one of the finest plays I have read
in the past five years," said Producing
Artistic Director Robert Cacioppo, "on
top of it being a very compelling story,
it is set against the backdrop of some of
Beethoven's finest music. The combina-


tion will be a very moving and beautiful
night at the theater."
The struggle at the heart of Opus can
be boiled down simply to "four chairs
and five people." It is a familiar struggle
to playwright Michael Hollinger, a for-
mer violist, who spent much of his youth
training to be a professional musician.
Hollinger used that unbalanced equation
to touch off what becomes 90 uninter-
rupted minutes of tense drama and inti-
mate character study.
The ensemble cast features five actors
with extensive bodies of work both at
Florida Rep and around the country. In


the quartet are Elliott playing 1st violin
(Giles Davies), Alan playing second vio-

Discover Southwest Florida's m

Cultural Hub At Edison State College ,
ARTS Edison is the latest edition to the world class offerings at Edison State
College. From the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall to the only gallery
outside of New York City's Guggenheim to bear the name of the great Bob .
Rauschenberg, ARTS Edison is a hub of artistic inspiration right here in Southwest
Florida. e w-
The arts are an integral part of the human experience; serving as windows into
diverse cultures, bringing new ideas to the forefront and offering new experiences and
appreciations, said Ron Bishop, curator of the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Edison z at
State. "Edison State College has embraced that concept for many years; ARTS Edison
is one more step the college has taken for our students and the community alike. I
think it is the leadership the community expects of Edison State, and it carries a pow- 1 -- r *
erful message acknowledging the importance of art and culture in learning and in
our lives. Im vey proud of this initiative and what it symbolizes.
ARTS Edison has a dedication to excellence, offering programs that create oppor-
tunities for students and the community alike to experience various traditions in the
visual and performing arts, while gaining a richer understanding of life. ARTS Edison
offers an array of affordable cultural opportunities designed to appeal, and be acces-
sible to all. By providing an inspirational setting where regional, national, and interna-

tonal cultural activities educate and entertain, ARTS Edison embraces the diversity of
Southwest Florida.
Discover the one-of-a-kind events and films offered during the Black Maria Film
Festival, check out the annual Pops Concert, delight in an Edison State Theatre pro-
duction, or take one of Edison State s new Arts Academy courses. Step inside the new
Richard H. Rush Library and visit the Special Collections Gallery from the Sanders and
Rush families. While on campus, take a break and enjoy the Koi pond in the Mary Jo
Sanders Garden of Inspiration.
It s vey refreshing that Edison State sees the importance of promoting art and
culture on our campus for the students as well as the community. It's exciting to
see students, who may never have actually taken the time to go check out a museum,
wander into one of the galleries on campus and really be intrigued by the art show-
cased here, said Michele Di Rocco, a recent graduate of Edison State College.
To further the college's commitment to arts and education Edison State plans to
begin offering an AA degree in the fine arts in the coming year.
Students are showing great interest in our newly developed theater, music and arts
classes, said Dr. Noreen Thomas executive vice president and Lee Campus president.
Participation and interest has reached a level that warrants the new option.
For more information about ARTS Edison contact Ron Bishop at Edison State
College, 489-9314.

Since its introduction
in June of 2007,
Apple's iPhone has
become one of America's
most popular "smart

hhno e e 0 e
combines three digital
tools in one: a revolu- iPhone photo courtesy of www.apple.com
tionary mobile phone, a
widescreen iPod, and a breakthrough Internet device. There are more than 85,000
downloadable applications known as "apps," which allow you to customize, and
expand the functionality of your phone. By April of this year Apple boasted that it
had delivered its one billionth application download from the App store.
The latest model of iPhone, the 3GS, features a digital compass which not only
looks and acts like a traditional compass, it also rotates maps to match the direction
that you are facing. Other new features include voice control and a digital video cam-
era.
With all of its power and potential, some find the iPhone to be a little daunting.
It does not come with instructions (although a 216-page manual can be downloaded
from the AT&T Web site). To help demystify this powerful pocket device, The Gladys
G. Land School of Art at the Lee County Alliance for the Arts has begun offering
iPhone workshops. The next class will be held on Thursday, January 7 from 6 to 8:30
p.m.
Taught by visual artist and Macintosh enthusiast Gerard Damiano, the two-and-a-
half-hour class begins with the very basics of the iPhone for newbiess," and progresses
through the more advanced functions for all levels of iPhone user. Damiano teaches
the class with an emphasis on visual example. Through the use of a video camera and
projector, he demonstrates the many functions of the phone live in class. Students are
asked (but not required) to bring their phones to follow along.

Around The Islands With Anne
Make Fitness Your Resolution For 2010
At The Sanibel Health Club
by Anne Mitchell


If your New Year's resolution is to get fit, tone up or lose some weight, you're probably looking for ways to get moti-
vated. Joining a gym where you can get expert help in tech-
nique and choosing the type of exercise that is right for you is
a good way to start.
Tim Shevlin, owner of the Sanibel Health Club, would be
an excellent motivator. Shevlin says of training and fitness: "I live
it; I work it; I love it."
Besides a passion for health and fitness, Shevlin, 31, has some
education in orthopedic medicine. He studied medicine at the
University of Florida with a goal of becoming an orthopedic sur-
geon. After suffering a herniated disc in his back, he found a new career path. "I knew
enough about the body where I rehabilitated my back and strengthened my muscles
and didn't have pain any more. Now I am into preventive medicine so that people
don't have to have surgery (for such conditions)," he said.
Shevlin, who grew up on
Pine Island, has worked in
gyms since he got out of col- z
lege and has worked as a per-
sonal trainer both in gyms and *
in people's homes.
With his own fitness cen-
ter, Shevlin wants to promote
good nutrition as well as fitness
- more of a fitness lifestyle
'instead of just doing your
thing and leaving."
The Sanibel Health Club
has a full array of exercise and
weight equipment and also
offers Butts-N-Guts, Flow Yoga
and Power Yoga classes and
will add more as the season
progresses. The classes are free Tim Shevlin, owner of the Sanibel Health Club
for members. Local residents
and seniors receive a 10 percent discount on membership.
For visitors and part-time residents, Shevlin offers day, week and month passes as
well as annual membership. A day pass is $10 and a weekly pass is $50.
Working with Shevlin is his significant other, Jenna Hoyt, who is studying to
become a physical therapist, along with Karen Stone and Kris Brown. In addition,
Shevlin has incorporated Brian Healy's Sanibel Wellness operation into the center.
Healy offers yoga classes and massage.
Sanibel Health Club is at 975 Rabbit Road, phone 395-BODY (2639).
Duet, the new show at the Watson Macrae Gallery, opens with a reception on
Thursday, January 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The show pairs the large ceramic jars
of Paul Chaleff with the early abstract paintings of Hollis Jeffcoat, creating a harmony
between aint and clay. -
Chale is a pioneer -
and recognized expert in .
the technique of Japanese
wood-fired pottey and r :
the creation of large-scale .* -
ceramic vessels. This 4
exhibit will feature both -- 9

Jeffcoat spent her early
career painting in France, Porcelain jar in celadon by Paul Chaleff and La Ferme II,
where she lived with Joan oil on linen by Hollis Jeffcoat from the Duet show at Watson
Mitchell for three years, Macrae Gallery
and in Montreal. The paintings in this exhibit chronicle these years and reflect her sur-
roundings and influences.

Massage for Health, owned and managed by Peggy Lynn Parnell, has relocated

Founded in 1982, Massage for Health provides advanced therapeutic massage and

pist and facial specialist, took over the business nine years ago. Massage for Health

EV-1 was the best-selling electric consumer
car of its time.


It was Soviet-bom American professor
and science-fiction author Isaac Asimov who
made the following sage observation: "The
saddest aspect of life right now is that science
gathers knowledge faster than society gathers
wisdom.'
If you ever travel to the British territory
of Bermuda, you might want to stop off in
Ely to see the world's smallest drawbridge.
Somerset Bridge is less than 20 feet from
one embankment to the other, and when the
draws are raised, there's barely enough room
for a single small sailboat to pass.
Early in its history, the Catholic Church
decreed that imbibing coffee was sinful.
It was Pope Clement VIII who, in 1592,
declared it to be a Christian drink.
When George Eastman sold the pat-
ent to his Kodak camera, he received only
$5,700.
The world's best long-distance swim-
mers are Alaskan seals. In order to avoid
the brutal northem winter, every fall these
aquatic mammals leave their calving grounds
on islands off the coast of Alaska and don't
return until spring. For eight months they
remain in the ocean, never touching land and
sometimes traveling more than 6,000 miles
before resuming home as the weather warms.
Ancient Egyptians believed that jackals
would lead human souls to the afterlife.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November
21) While a long-deferred decision suddenly
might take on some urgency after news on
a related matter, you still need to weigh all
factors carefully before deciding one way or
the other.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) This is a good time to reassess
the earlier plan you made for the New Year.
Some elements you felt you could depend on
to make it work might no longer carry that
assurance.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Forming a renewed connection with a
former associate is only the first step toward
working out your new plans. Be prepared for
problems, and deal with them as soon as they
arise.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Romantic situation that was going smoothly
not too long ago might take a new tum. Be
honest about your feelings before you decide
whether to follow it or take another path,
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The
wise Pisces (that's you, of course) will make
sure everyone knows you plan to keep your
options open and listen to all sides of the situ-
ation before making any decisions.

approach to life and living is always an inspi-

make a major career or personal move. But
as always, get all the facts before rushing into
any sort of deal or commitment.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) What
seems to be a great opportunity could cause
even usually practical Taureans to ignore
their inner caution cues. Best to move care-
fully to avoid falling into unseen traps.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Need a
holiday now that the seasonal festivities are
behind you? Good idea. Plan to go to some-
place wonderful. You'll retum refreshed and
more than ready for a new challenge.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Progress
continues to be made on that pesky work-
place problem. Meamshile, don't assume a
personal situation will work itself out. Best to
get more improved earlier than later.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Catnaps
are definitely recommended for Leos and
Leonas 1460 had been going at a hectic pace
over the holidays. Adding relaxation time to
your schedule helps restore your overdrawn
energy reserves.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Sure, some of the new friends you made over
the holidays might move out of your life at
some point. But at least one might show sig-
nificant "staying power" with some encour-
agement.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Encourage family members to join you in
supporting a relative who could be facing a
difficult emotional challenge in the New Year.
Showing your love and concem helps keep
his or her hopes up.


On Jan. 10, 1901, a drilling derrick
at Spindletop Hill near Beaumont, Texas,
produces an enormous gusher of crude oil
signaling the advent of the American oil
industry. The geyser flowed at an initial
rate of 100,000 barrels a day. Within a year,
there were more than 285 active wells at
Spindletop. Today, only a few oil wells still
operate in the area.
On Jan. 6, 1936, Porky Pig makes his

"Gold Diggers of '49." When Mel Blanc

On Jan. 7, 1959, six days after the fall of
the Fulgencio Batista dictatorship, the United
States recognizes the new Cuban govem-

tect American interests in Cuba, but less than
two years later, the U.S. severed diplomatic
ties and unleashed the Bay of Pigs invasion.
On Jan. 8, 1966, rock-and-roll TV

Sherlock Holmes
by Priscilla

Again this
year the
Island
Cinema in coop-
eration with BIG
ARTS is featuring
a series of films
thought to be .
Academy Award
contenders. The 7-
films are shown
at the theater in
Bailey s Shopping ".
Center at 1 p.m. ==
ery ednlesday
March. The first
film for January
6 is Sherlock
Holmes. Robert
Downey, Jr. has
received a Golden
Globe nomination
for Best Actor for
his portrayal of
Holmes. Starring
opposite him as
Dr. Watson is
Jude Law and Mark Strong as Blackwood and Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock
Rachel McAdams Holmes in action/adventure mystery Sherlock Holmes
is Irene, an old Photo by Alex Bailey
flame of the
famous detective.

British director Guy Ritchie has invented a different persona for Holmes than that
portrayed by earlier actors Basil Rathbone, Jeremy Brett, John Cleese and Michael
Caine. This Holmes as interpreted by Downey and Ritchie is still, as one reviewer put
it, brilliant but now "...a kind of butt-kicker to boot. Violence has partially replaced
intellect in crime solving.
Holmes and Watson plot and conspire through the foggy streets of Victorian
London as they attempt to solve a diabolical criminal plot. While the sleuths like girls
there is a barely disguised attraction between the two longtime roommates. Sherlock
Holmes is rated PG with parents strongly cautioned for the violence.
Tickets are $7.50 and can be purchased at the Island Cinema. Everyone is invited
to attend a discussion of the film at 3:30 p.m. at The Bean, 2240 Periwinkle Way.
The discussion leader on Januay 6 is Priscilla Friedersdorf.0


Monday Night Movie

Julie And Julia
by Priscilla
Friedersdorf
ne of
the most
delightful
films of 2009 and
a current Academy
Award contender,
Julie and Julia is
the first movie of
the New Year at
BIG ARTS. It will be shown on Monday,
January 4, at 7 p.m. in Schein Hall.
Meyl Streep captivates you immedi-
ately with her high, flutey trill and gawky
posture; she IS Julia Child. Director
Nora Ephron combined two books for
her screenplay; Julia Child's My Life in
France, which she co-wrote with her
nephew Alex Prud'homme, and Julie
and Julia by Julie Powell. The former
book was set in Paris in 1949, and the
latter in Queens in 2002.
As the film opens Julia/Streep stands
with her husband Paul Child gazing at
their new apartment building in Paris.
Oh, Paul, it's Versailles! and Streep
immediately defines yet another film as
her own.
Stanley Tucci is perfect as Paul Child,
a foreign service officer, who encour-
ages Julia every step of the way in her
newfound vocation as a chef, author and
television personality.
Julie and Eric Powell (Amy Adams
and Chris Messina) are a young married

Book Review
Shore Lines:
Reflections Beside The Wide Water
by Priscilla Friedersdorf
In the introduction by Mari Messer to her
thoughtful book Shore Lines she writes,
"In the pages that follow, you're invited to
join me in a sabbatical by the sea... I hope
these sea stories will stir your wondering and
remembering, and inspire you to explore
your own inner sea-space. B.@eutom amur she whames.*..
The short vignettes of remembrance that
Messier includes in her book are taken from
her experiences along the sea shore. One of .
my favorites is A Bouquet of Gull Feathers.
As she walks along the beach viewing a newly
risen sun she meets an elderly woman stooping ,
to retrieve something, possibly shells, but no,
she holds up a small gray feather. "I've made a
bouquet of them... I know it sounds goofy... but
it's really pretty. You should see it."
Feathers, dead brown flowers in a bridal
bouquet, and each of us probably has a favorite 1- i.
old coffee mug which is required to enhance
our early morning experience. "These ordinary -
objects possess the power of attachment that can't always be explained."
Messier tries to locate the spot on Sanibel which Anne Morrow Lindbergh described
in her book Gift from the Sea but she can only guess at the specific stretch of beach
as she reconstructs Lindbergh's message:"To be alone is to have an opportunity to
shape uniqueness, to process experiences, to heal brokenness; to feed the soul."
We are drawn back to the sea and its beaches by "...the need to remember some-
thing that's often absent from our everyday lives." Messer concludes with thoughts for
us on solitude; "...by setting aside and protecting precious moments of solitude... (we
can) take time to play, to dream, to be ...listen to the song of the sea in your soul."
Shore Lines is available in Sanibel book stores and gift shops.#

several years. Kanzius, 64, had become a promi-
nent national figure during the past five years as
a result of his development of a new potential
treatment for cancer. Currently in the develop- sp
ment stage, it kills cancer cells by non-invasively
directing radio waves at a tumor which heats the
cancer cells to a temperature that destroys them .

debilitating side effects.

The Periwinkle Partnership celebrated the
completion of its project to restore vegetation
along Periwinkle Way. It has taken almost five
yearsbut the last plantings have been made to
beautify the island's main street after it was dev-
astated by Hurricane Charley in August 2004. March 21, Jeri Magg becomes the
With a 54 percent voter turnout, Sanibel first woman commodore
returned three incumbent candidates to their
city council seats on Tuesday. Mayor Mick Denham, Vice Mayor Kevin Ruane and
Councilman Marty Harrity kept their seats by wide margins over opponents David
Bath and David Berger.
The Sanibel Island Farmers Market made its debut on Sunday in the parking lot at
Tahitian Gardens shopping center. The market is being operated on a five-week trial
basis by two longtime island women, Jean Baer and Betsy Ventura. If it's successful,
they will bring it back next winter for a longer period.
Some of the royal palms that have been planted around the Sanibel toll plaza and
boat ramp have turned brown and a Sanibel master gardener says they're dying of
thirst. Paul Wingard, deputy director of Lee County Department of Transportation,
which has overseen the entire causeway project since it began, said, "They (royal
palms) have a certain amount of salt water tolerance and some have turned brown and
we are not sure whether it is salt water intrusion or what is the problem.
Sanibel Recreation Center established a new one-day attendance record on
Tuesday, March 24 when 599 people visited the center.

Children playing on the swings and slides in the new Community Park now have


shade. The umbrella-like shade structures,
funded by the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club,
are now in place. The covers are made from
a special fabric and is attached to metal posts
wrapped with batting to soften them.
The nesting season for snowy plovers
has begun on Sanibel. Sanibel-Captiva

the monitoring of this state listed, threatened
species on Sanibel. Estimates indicate that
around 200 pairs of snowy plovers remain -
along the west coast of Florida, from the ,
Panhandle through Cape Sable. As of last
week on Sanibel, there were three nests, each ,
with three eggs.

Anyone planning to build or expand a Charlotte Seldon, age one, on one of
home on Sanibel will have to make it no big- tchae pla go nd slides during the dedi-
ger than the biggest home in their neighbor-
hood or else the application will have to go
the long form, public hearing route.
That's what the planning commission decided Tuesday after more than three hours
of discussion in yet another of a long series of meetings held to seek a clear and fair
way to prevent very large homes from altering the rhythm and harmony of island com-
munities. The plan will need city council approval to go into effect.
In response to the current economic climate, the City of Sanibel's full-time work
force continues to be reduced. The number has been cut by seven percent this fiscal
year, which began on October 1, 2008, said City Manager Judie Zimomra. Nine full-
time jobs have been eliminated by attrition.
Non-resident property owners will now enjoy the same beach parking benefits as
residents thanks to an ordinance passed 4-1 by the Sanibel City Council on Tuesday.
Council agreed that ad valorem taxpayers should also be able to buy the annual "A"
decal for $12 instead of $90, allowing them to park at beach accesses as well as other
locations.

6B ISLAND SUN JANUARY 1, 2009
From page 4B
2009 Year In Review
June g
John Scott of Inverness,
Illinois, and his son-in-law a .
Bill Farmer of Sanibel and 4, 4 .
Palatine, Illinois, caught -,
an endangered sawfish .
while fishing for tarpon off k -
Knapp's Point in approxi- *
mately 20 feet of water, .-- -'
fishing with cut catfish tails ..
on the bottom. It was esti- ,-.*;
mated at approximately 12 .
feet long and 300 pounds. *
The smalltooth sawfish -- .
population has dwindled to
about five percent of what Crowd at toll structure OL
it once was. The National meeting in July
Marine Fisheries Association
proposes to designate shallow areas around Sanibel
and beyond as endangered habitat for the juvenile
smalltooth sawfish.
Lee County is closing in on final plans to construct a fishing pier adjacent to
the middle bridge (Span B) of the Sanibel Causeway. Lee County Department of
Transportation, engineers are finishing the final design and the county expects to offer
the project for bid in the next two months.
The use of Segways on Sanibel's paths and roads by people with disabilities has
been given the blessing of the city council. However, for the able-bodied, Segway use
is limited to guided tours on a small section at the east end of the island.
Since the city council put a $20 bounty on the head of every iguana on the island
in 2007, trappers have moved over 1,300 of the invasive creatures at a cost of nearly
$31,000 in fiscal 2008 and over $9,000 this fiscal year so far.
July
A big, vocal crowd heckled county transportation officials when they outlined a plan
for a new Sanibel toll structure. Despite a last-minute change that would set a $400
annual cap on the cost of crossing the bridge for daily commuters, island residents
would face a 50 percent increase from $2 to $3 on the cost of each bridge cross-
ing if the unlimited toll programs were eliminated.
Days later, Lee County dropped its toll increase plan.


The first of the prefabricated

insd swemh dottstheplst F ->
below market rate housing project .*
at Center Street begins to take
shape. The 14 dwellings two- a I
and three-bedroom duplex homes ,- 7 I
- should be ready for occupancy [ 1
by mid to late November.
August z
A thunderstorm with high
waves caused Blind Pass to open July 17, Sam Bailey questions Paul Wingard of Lee
last Friday night ahead of county Department of Transportation over the pro-
schedule by eroding the beach posed toll hike
around the Sanibel side of the
remaining sheet pile wall.
"This area was the last to be dredged and the remaining beach berm was not
strong enough to hold," said Robert Neal, coastal engineer with the Lee County
Division of Natural Resources.
The pass, blocked by sand for more than eight years, has been dredged in a $3.2
million project financed by the state, Lee County and the Captiva Erosion Prevention
District. This weekend a 3-knot current was flowing between the Gulf of Mexico and
the bay.
The sheet pile wall that has blocked Blind Pass for many months was to have been
removed Saturday. Its removal was postponed until the week of August 5.
A permanent medical center is planned for the site on Tarpon Bay Road where a
temporary center recently stood.
Dr. James Frizzell, a gastroenterologist from Frederick, Mangland, said he is under
contract with Sam Bailey, owner of the land, to purchase it for a medical center to
house specialists that currently aren't available on Sanibel.
September
The concept of a pilot program to provide re-charging stations on Sanibel for solar-
powered vehicles is being discussed by a citizen group.
The move runs parallel with another grassroots effort to offer solar water heating
systems at reduced cost to island homeowners.
Mayor Mick Denham talked Saturday at a city council meeting about the two proj-
ects after Councilman Jim Jennings had mentioned the possibility of the city applying
for grants for solar panels for garages.
An 11th hour village rate reduction voted by the Sanibel City Council on Tuesday
night will lop about $74 off the average island tax bill.

2009 Year In Review
At the urging of Vice Mayor Kevin
Ruane, who led the budget meeting, the
council adopted a village rate of 2.1561,
a reduction from the 2.2808 set at a pre-
vious meeting. "We owe the taxpayers,
Ruane said. He added that Sanibel is "a
destination island and many people come
as visitors and ultimately as homeown-


ers." He said he doesn't want to give any-
one thinking of buying a home here the
impression that Sanibel is raising taxes in
these tough economic times.
October
The city council accepted a shared
use path and rest area easement from
Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation
that will make way for widening the
Rabbit Road path. Most of the widen-
ing will take place to the east side of the


path except for an area near the lakes,
which would require extensive loss of
native vegetation. Widening that section
on the west side won't require as much
vegetation to be moved but it requires
an easement from SCCF. The project will
increase the path width from six to eight
feet.

being done by Dr. Stephen Curley of the

Patty Sprankle has resigned from the
Sanibel Planning Commission effective
December 31, citing "family priorities
that require extra time and attention.
On Tuesday, the city council discussed
the procedure for filling the remain-
ing 12 months of Sprankle's term.
In addition, the three-year terms of
Commission Chairman Mike Valiquette
and Commissioner Les Forney will expire
in January. Both have requested reap-
pointment.

the name of the
game these days
To make your game
more modern and
to keep up with the times you will have
to re-assess your own grip and swing.
Most of you veterans have between a
continental and eastern forehand grip.
This is where your palm on the side
plane of your handle is parallel to the
plane of your strings. For a classic swing
style, this is the most natural and physi-
cally most secure relationship between
body, racquet, and point of contact.
However, because of people using the
heavier topspin to make the ball kick
up higher and move away from the net,
pushing the opponent further back in the
court, the popularity of the eastern grip is
not as common today. Therefore, if you
are interested in advancing your skills, by
moving your grip to a semi-western or
western grip you will be able to handle
the high kick of the bounce.
This western grip rotates the pointer
finger knuckle 90 degrees clockwise
(for a right-hander), so that the palm is
underneath the handle rather than behind
it. And the semi-western grip is halfway
between the two. The swing path on the
western grip is sharply upward, generated
by rotational forces, and the ball is hit
more in front of the hip than the eastern
grip. Before tying these new grips and
swings meet with your tennis pro and ask
him to show you the differences between

In fact, it was the first perfect night shot
.
by any Sambel Cafa shooter this year.
Dalton's perfect score came after he
completed a two-hour intensive lesson
with a local pro just last week.
In addition to being a valuable Sanibel

Wednesday night he puts in an additional
four hours of practice during free pool

Incidentally, Dalton's victim in his 4-0
match was none other than Fresh Legion
Crew s Tom Hensel who grabbed head-
lines several weeks back with his first 4-0

12B ISLAND SUN JANUARY 1, 2010

Florida's Urban Meyer Makes

The Right Decision That's The

TOp Sports Story Of The Year
by Ed Frank
Very newspaper, every magazine, every radio and televi-
sion station, hundreds of blogs, every media imaginable
are listing the top 10 events of the year, the top 10 sto-
ries of the decade, the worst, the happiest, the deadliest, the
funniest, etc., etc., etc. adnausia.
Sure, here in Florida we ve had national college football and
1 basketball champions, a World Series champion, Super Bowl
\4 champion, champions of all sorts. But this is one reporter who
1 will not succumb to the mindless listing of top 10 sporting events
of the year or the decade.
To my way of thinking, the biggest story occurred just this
past weekend with the sudden, unexpected resignation of Florida football coach Urban
Meyer, who less than 24 hours later rescinded that decision in favor of a leave of
absence from the Gator Nation.
The psychoanalysts of the world have prescribed in lengthy detail Meyer s reason-
ing from first stepping down from that pressure-cooker of a job, and then reversing his
announcement.
I don t think you need a degree in medicine or psychology to understand Meyer,
recently voted the College Football Coach of the Decade by Sports Illustrated and
Sporting News.
He is a workaholic, under a great deal of stress and tends not to delegate authority.
He has a history of medical problems as far back as 1998 when he was an assistant
coach at the Notre Dame. He has a young family and realizes their formative years are
racing by without the devoted attention a loving father should provide.
Yes, his physician and Florida Athletic Director Jeremy Foley recommended, per-
haps even demanded, that Meyer step down, at least temporarily, from his sideline
duties. But in the end it was Meyer s wise decision alone.
Just how long he will remain away from his Gator responsibilities, or if he will ever
return to that job, is a matter of conjecture.
The NCAA has rules on the hours of team practice, spring and pre-season schedul-
ing, and other restrictions. Maybe it is time to establish similar limitations for coaches
and their staff.


,,,LebsMeyer

gd cd il nsithatld
have been
made sooner.
Tomorrow,
Friday, he will .
coach Florida
for perhaps his
final game when
the Gators face --
Cincinnati in the
Sugar Bowl. ...
And let us
also applaud him
for his amazing Urban Meyer photo courtesy AP Mario Casales
accomplishments
in Gainesville over the last five years: two national championships, a 56-10 record
including a 32-8 record in conference play, and a 22-game winning streak that ended
earlier this month when Florida lost to Alabama in the SEC championship game.
Let us also remember that when he assumed the Florida job in 2005, the Gators
had a 7-5 record the year before, and he had them winning a national title by 2006.
Overall, he has a 95-18 career record at Bowling Green, Utah, and Florida.
Meyer was making $4 million a year, he is the most sought-after college coach in
the nation, and he brought pride and gloy to Florida.
But he has made the correct decision to walk away, to restore his health, and to
care for the needs of his family. And for these reasons, he earns the respect from all
of us.
Everblades Begin Long Road Trip With Split
The Florida Everblades hockey team began their longest road trip in franchise his-
toy last week with a split, a 3-0 victor over Charlotte and a 3-2 overtime loss to
Gwinnett.
The 11-game road journey continues this week with two more games at Gwinnett
and one at South Carolina.
Florida began the week with a 15-12-2 season record.0

Beachview Men's

Golf Association
by Ed O'Neil
Every experienced golfer, even the
best in the world, knows you can-
not have a lot of different thoughts
running through your mind as you play
the game.
For example, when Tiger Woods saw
his wife swinging a nine-iron at his head,
he had only one thought, Gotta get
outta here.
An old friend, neighbor and golf
companionPau Recknagel was great at
holding only one thought in his mind.

In hoeoon pal wed onee oougshwi
ing.
One year it was What trees?
Knowing he would be faced with many
moments when a tree or trees blocked his
path to a flag, he minimized their scare
value. What trees? reminded him that a
tree is 95 percent air and thus can be
conquered.
This 95 per cent rule only applies
to trees growing north of Chattanooga.
Florida trees are 90 percent concrete and
10 percent golf ball eaters.
Another year Paul s mantra became
Oily. He explained that he was tak-
ing all the jerkiness out of his motion by
thinking this one, slick word as he swung.
The last time I saw him I inquired
about the swing thought of the year.

ns a p in an ,1 theo /ticed
all good golfers hit the ball then shade
their eyes for a long time as they watch
it fly? That s what Im doing... looking
long.
That day he was definitely looking
long, but it was apparent to everyone else
in the foursome that his oily swing had
resulted in the ball crashing into a what
tree that happened to be in his path, 50
yar s utinajority of members of the
Beachview MensGolfassociationhad
one key word in their mind it must have
been Sanibel No matter where their
holiday travels took them, the weather
was bad and worse. They 11be back soon.
In their absence the members who
decided not to refresh their memories of
snow and ice played a couple of tourna-
ments.
On December 22 it was a variable
better ball event (one score on par 5s,
two on 4s and three on the par 3s). Rich
Rompala may have locked up the captain
of the year title when he led a foursome
to his fourth straight victory.
This time Jim Mulka, Guy Tober and
Mark Ryan helped him to a 118 total.
The two-man best ball on December
26 saw Bill Stell and Jack Tukey take
turns doing heroic things as they regis-
tered a winning 7 net.#

Stay On Top Of Your Estate Plan In 2010

changed in its entirety. The law is, for
the most part, better than the law we
had before. Nevertheless, the law is com-
pletely different than what it was. Even
if you have Florida trusts, if they haven't
been updated to take into consideration
the various elements of this new law,
you should visit with your estate planning
attorney.
Now in 2009/2010 we have other
big changes with the federal estate
tax laws. Depending upon what the
Congress decides to do and the president
agrees to sign, trusts may need updated
tax language. Moreover, which assets
you've put into your respective trust may
need to change. Many married couples
"balance" their trusts by putting some in
to husband's and some in to wife's trust.
To the extent that the tax laws change
rebalancing the assets that you've deckled
to place into each spouse's trust might be
necessa
A finTchange that occurs is not due
to any law change, rather it has to do
with changes to your residence. If you
own a Florida residence and declare it
as your Florida homestead, at that point
in time (the declaration as Florida home-
stead) very specific rules regarding how
it can be left to your beneficiaries come
into play. Those same rules didn't apply
the minute before you became a Florida
resident. That's another big change that
can affect an estate plan.
The year 2010 is likely to be a year of
hange. Let's hope it's for the better. But
I any event, don't lock your estate plan-


ning documents in a drawer and forget
about them. Now more than ever you

Last week I
wrote about
he uncertainty
surrounding wheth-
er and how the fed-
eral estate tax might
be extended into
2010 and beyond.
As of January 1,
without further leg-
islation being enacted, the federal estate
tax disappears for one year, only to be
replaced with a capital gains tax system
that is difficult for lay people to both
understand and to comply with.
It is likely that 2010 brings sweep-
ing changes to the federal estate and
gift tax system. The law which we have
operated under for the last 10 years was
originally passed in President Bush's first
term in the White House. By design, that
law will sunset at the end of 2010 as
the Congress could not get the 60 votes
required to make the tax cut permanent
for more than 10 years.
My experience as an estate planning
attorney is that too many clients shove
their plans into their safe deposit boxes
never to be looked at or reviewed again
until someone gets sick or worse dies.
Especially in today's ever changing world
it is important to remain vigilant and to
review your estate plan on an annual
basis.


In the last several years alone, here
are a few of the changes that have
impacted many estate plans:
In 2005 the federal estate and gift
tax system decoupledd" from the state
death tax system. In other words, the
federal government no longer provides a
credit for state death taxes paid. Because
the states are looking for more money
everywhere they can, many states have
lowered their state death tax exemption.
This means that when someone's estate
planning documents are not drafted to
accommodate this 2005 change, there
is a possibility (for decedents who die in
a state that imposes a death tax or who
have property in such a state) that state
death tax will be assessed upon the first
spouse's death which would obviouslV
impact the surviving spouse;
In 2005 and in 2006 there were
many changes impacting the way that
IRA and 401(k) accounts are taxed and
required to be distributed after the death
of the account owner. Actually, the laws
here can work to the beneficiaries ben-
efit allowing them greater leeway in
achieving continued tax deferred growth.
The pension plan laws are ever changing,
and these assets are among the tough-
est to plan for as one wrong move could
result in the recognition of the previously
untaxed income. A beneficiary who is
unaware of the complex rules surround-

Hanny New Year
MM J *
by Marcia Feeney
This year,
instead of
making that
same old New
Year s resolution
of losing those 10
pounds or going
to the health club
three times a week,
resolve to give your
home a New Year's
face lift.
These design tips should serve you
well as you move towards an updated,
fresh new look for your home:
Start a file of magazine pictures of
rooms that you like. Even if you can t
exactly pinpoint why you find a room
setting so appealing, by reviewing your
file, your decorator will be able to quickly
understand the feel that you want for
your home.
Involve your professional decorator
at the very beginning of your project.
Doing so will help you avoid the costly
mistakes that many homeowners make.
The most successful decorating projects
are those where the decorator and hom-
eowner are vey candid with each other
regarding tastes, priorities, budget, timing
and goals.
Your first goal should be to design
your home to suit the way you and your
family actually live. Analyze all the rooms


of your home are some underutilized
and some just exhausted from use?
Maybe it s time to relocate some activity
centers and redirect some traffic patterns.
Be realistic when determining the
amount you plan to invest in the project.
If you haven t redecorated in several
years, you may need to acquaint yourself
with today s pricing to determine your
budget range.
Resist the urge to repaint your inte-
rior as the first step in your new look.
There are myriad beautiful paint colors to
compliment your final fabric selections but
painting your walls first will severely limit
your choices in fabric selections. Color
schemes should flow smoothly from room
to room, especially in the adjoining living
areas. This means some detailed attention
needs to be paid early to the long range
overall color plan.
Forget matching sets of furniture and
mono-chromatic "safe schemes. A far
more interesting look is a room of com-
plementing wood pieces and companion-
able fabrics in exciting complement
colors.
Something slightly whimsical in every
room will ensure that your rooms don t
take their new look too seriously. Lamps,
area rugs, candles and other accessories
are all opportunities for a novel touch to
keep rooms feeling light and welcoming.
Use many different textures, materials
and surfaces. Combinations of met-
als, woods, glass, woven reeds, fabrics,
ceramics and stone will provide depth and
interest to your decorative theme.


Insist upon good lighting. A well
planned room will have lighting at vary-
ing levels and intensities appropriate to
the activity of the area. Close attention
should be given especially to task lighting
for activities such as reading, dining, and
cooking and desk top work.
This is one New Year's resolution that
you and your family will be pleased you
kept for years to come.

InSurance Tip.

Who Has Theft
COVerage?
by Marge Meek
ore and
more inci-
dents are
being reported
of theft from
5 ] businesses. Our
economic times
have undoubtedly
increased the num-
ber of crimes and
our islands have
been relatively quiet when compared to
other communities in Lee County.
The islands are so quiet that most busi-
ness owners don t examine their insur-
ance policies to see if theft is covered.
The vast majority of businesses don t


have coverage and that is because most
don t have central alarms. Insurance com-
panies typically don t write theft coverage
if there is no security service that moni-
tors a break-in. It is that simple.
If your business does have a monitored
central alarm, be sure your agent knows
about it and it is part of your policy. The
effect often isn t noticeable on your pre-
mium, but it is your responsibility to be
sure your policy reflects your current situ-
ation if you want to have your claim be
processed quickly. Talk to your agent to
review coverage and endorsements.
During your agent review, go over
other important details, like how much
inventor coverage you have. With a
slower economy many businesses have
taken their inventories down and you
want your policies to reflect your current
economic environment.
What about expansion into other lines
of business or product. If you are offering
expanded services, does your insurance
policy reflect that change in business
direction?
As season starts up, be sure that your
insurance policies, including liability,
property or business interruption, have
been reviewed and brought up to date.

Captiva insurance agent who can be

attract overwhelming piles of stuff. If
you commit to throwing out one or two
things a day, it really helps. And if you're
one of those people who needs to see
your papers spread around you as you
work (I am), just contain the surface area
you allot to this.
Keep Asking Yourself If You'd
Rather be Happy or Right
A lot of stress is generated for our-
selves and others by our need to be
right, show we're right, prove we're right.
And really, so what if we establish we're
right? We cleanse our psychic pallet and
de-gunk our day by letting go of an issue
and moving on. Mind you, this is not the
same as being a chump. It's about taking
care of ourselves, and therein lies right
relationship, clear focus and, yes, happi-
ness.
Don't Be Proud Get Support
When the Chips are Down
Sometimes talking things out with
someone you trust will allow you to safely
acknowledge your feelings, let off some
steam, get you away from circular think-
ing and rearrange your mislaid perspec-
tive. Sometimes friends even have helpful
advice to give. Sometimes they actually
stop us from doing something really
dumb.
Practice Staying in the Moment
By mindfully going about your day,
putting your awareness into what you are
doing at the moment, you will be using
even mundane, everyday activities as the
focus of meditation, and simple
continued on page 22B


and relax you. If possible, start and end
the day with guided imagery, yoga, medi-
tation, relaxation, deep breathing, petting
the cat in a rocking chair or listening to
soothing music. Even five minutes, twice
a day, will give you some protective bal-
last against the day's stresses. And if you
can't manage this daily, do it whenever
you can.
Take a Mini-break When You're
Getting Crazed
When you find yourself starting to lose
it, or butting up against your own rigidity
or circular thinking, take a quick break.
Step away. Go outside for a walk, do
some guided images, snuggle your favor-
ite toddler, play some music, call a loving
friend or do a couple of yoga stretches.
Five minutes of conscious AWOL can
clear your mind and give you back your
perspective, flexibility and common sense.
Dose Your Day with Humor
Humor, by its nature, provides instant
distance, balance and perspective, if even
for a moment. As long as it's not aimed
at mocking others, it allows us to step
back and take everything, including our-
selves, less seriously. So practice the art
of finding the ludicrous, paradoxical and
nonsensical in daily events. And laughing
itself is priceless. A belly laugh changes
biochemistry and clears out emotional
gunk like little else.
Be Realistic And Know Your
Limits
It's a wonderful thing to know what
you can and cannot do. Wrestle your
perfectionism to the ground and don't
let idealized expectations press you into
doing more than you can realistically
manage. Say no. Set limits. Work smart.


This is especially important around holi-
day time, when tying too hard to do too
much creates the exact opposite of the
holiday feeling you're striving for, and you
morph into the cranky, resentful, mar-
tyred, ovenvorked nightmare you swore
you'd never be.
Manage Your Time
A corollary is to try not to over-com-
mit. If you do, make a list and prioritize.
Just getting these things out of your head
and onto a piece of paper will reduce
some stress. If the list is out of control,
look it over and assess what has to go
and then cancel, with apologies. Then
tackle things you can finish, one at a
time if at all possible. Work mindfully at
it, and enjoy the satisfaction that comes
with getting it done. Procrastination can
be a terrible stressor. We're always aware
of what we should be doing while we're
not doing it, and it's a real joy-killer and
energy-sapper. Do a piece of it and check
that sucker off!
When Scheduling, Give Yourself
Room To Breathe
If you find you're scheduling yourself
with back to back meetings, consider the
possibility that you're an adrenaline junk-
ie, running from appointment to appoint-
ment to feed your addiction. Leave time
between things, to catch your breath,
reflect on what's next, acquaint yourself
with a calmer class of neurohormones
that return you to equilibrium. Once you
get out of the habit of racing, you won't
be so eager to go back to it, I promise.
Throw Something Out Every Day
Useless clutter is another low level,
subliminal stress-producer. And we all
know how quickly a clean surface can

Got A Problem?
CDr Onn'I
I I
by Constance
Clancy
Q: Once more
it's that time of year
when we aspire to
stay calm, sane and
steady in the face of
demands piling on
from the holidays. I
know you've prob-
ably seen most of
these tips before,
but just for a reminder, here's a compiled
list of how to reduce stress:
Take Care of Your Body
Try to do all those things you know
are good for your physical well being:
get regular exercise; take it easy on the
caffeine, sugar and alcohol; get enough
sleep; eat healthy food you know this
stuff. This is the baseline of stress reduc-
tion.
Track Your Physical Comfort
Take time to check in and see how
your body is feeling. Once you notice,
you can make small corrections to relieve
discomfort before it takes over. Breathe
into tight places; stretch and move when
your back or neck feels stiff; look out the
window when your eyes are straining at
the computer screen; massage your neck
and press the acupoints when a headache
is lurking. But you have to notice what's
amiss first.

To kick-off this year's event, Arden
Courts Alzheimer's Assisted Living is
sponsoring a Tribute Tree during the
month of December. Individuals can
make a $10 donation, which includes an
ornament for their loved one on the tree
at Arden Courts and a luminary in the A
Light To Remember event in Centennial
Park. All donations benefit the Dubin
Alzheimer's Resource Center.
Approximately five million Americans,
including more than 22,000 Lee County
residents, currently have an Alzheimer's-
type dementia. Another person is diag-
nosed with Alzheimer's disease every 70
seconds.
All funds raised by the Alvin A. Dubin
Alzheimer's Resource Center are used to
benefit local families and caregivers.#
From page 21B
Dr. Connie
as it sounds, you will regain peace and
balance. Yes, peeling potatoes can be a
route to spiritual attainment and inner
peace.
Notice Little Moments of Beauty
and Sweetness
This sounds hokey but it works. Notice
beauty around you and take a moment
to breathe it in... same with a smile, a
gracious act, a loving gesture. Practicing
gratitude for these lovely bits and pieces
of daily life is a potent way to de-stress,
and it's contagious too.
Dr Clancy is a licensed mental
health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public
speaker You may email Dr Connie at

Shore Fishing:
Don't Harm The Fish
by Capt. Matt Mitchell




a 3


Landing a big fish from the beach can be hard on the fish. Dragging a fish up onto the


sand if you're going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the fish.
Hold the fish in the water while you un hook it if you're going to release it.
The less you can touch a fish before release the better for the fish.
If you want a picture with the fish, support it as you lift it out of the water -
and do it quickly.
Before releasing, revive the fish while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back are
forth so water goes over its gills. The fish will let you know when it's ready to swim off.
Florida just recently changed the regulations on fishing from shore. Florida residents as
well as out of state visitors need a fishing license to fish from shore.
