New Farce Brings
Laughter And
Good Times i


What do you get when you mix
two inexperienced police offi-
cers with a political embezzle-
ment scandal? Unnecessary Farce,
the new comedy at The Herb Strauss
Schoolhouse Theater, directed by
Artistic Producer Victor Legarreta.
Written by Paul Slade Smith,
Unnecessary Farce is self-described as
a "contemporary, American farce, in
the tradition of Lend Me a Tenor (but
contemporary) and Noises Off (but
American!)." With a crazy cast of char-
acters, everything that could go wrong
certainly does.
Stepping on to The Schoolhouse stage
are: Business Manager Dave Yudowitz;
House Manager Jennifer Smith; return-
ing actors James Lane, and Matthew
Edwards; local favorites who are now liv-


ing the Hollywood lifestyle in LA, Marcus
Kiehl and Mindy Montavon-Kiehl; and
newcomer Kay Francis.
Don't miss the opening night recep-
tion Thursday, January 14 at 7 p.m.
Opening nights at The Schoolhouse are
a who's who of the island. These special
showings sell out quickly so make your
reservations early. Unnecessary Farce
plays through February 6, with show time
at 8 p.m.
The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse
Theater is located at 2200 Periwinkle
Way. For more information call the box
office at 472-6862 or visit the new Web
site at www.TheSchoolhouseTheater.

G ood tidings came early
to Jeffrey P. Oths on
Christmas day when he
found an unusual shell while
on his morning beach walk at
Point Ybel. Oths was hunting
for his favorite Sanibel shell,
the angulate wentletrap, but
there were precious few to be
found, so he decided to check
the drift lines for whatever he
could find by digging through
the narrow piles of shells.
An avid sheller familiar
with local shell species, Oths
knew when he picked up a
star-shaped shell, measuring
approximately 22mm in diam-
eter, that it was very different
and unlike any he had found
before. So, until he could posi-
tively ID it, he would call it The
Christmas Star.
After sharing his find with
a close friend, Oths pored Long-spined star shell
through his shell books and
found the shell. It is called the
long-spined star, Astralium
phoebium (R5ding, 1798).
The distribution range is rela-
tively close to Sanibel but pri-
marily west and south of the
island. "'
It being a holiday weekend, .
Oths had to postpone his
usual first visit when finding
interesting shells with Dr. Jose
Leal, director of The Bailey-
Matthews Shell Museum. Three
days later Dr. Leal was excited
to see the shell and agreed that
it was indeed a long-spined
star shell. But the best news
was yet to come. First of all,
the shell had never been docu-
mented on Sanibel before and
secondly, it would make the
three hundredth named Sanibel
shell in The Bailey-Matthews
Shell Museum database. It was
an exciting time for both Dr.
Leal and Oths.
After cleaning the shell Jeffrey P. Oths with his Christmas Star
ultrasonically to remove some
scale Dr. Leal photographed it and it can now be seen on the shell museum Web
site homepage under the category: On Line Guide of SWFS, click photo or species
name or go to: (http://shellmuseum.org/shells/shellspic.cfm). Needless to say, Oths
was pleased with the exciting news and appreciative of Dr. Leal's help establishing it
as a new species on Sanibel. For this and many reasons, it truly was one of the best
Christmas days ever.Q

I visited Sanibel
oand returned to
.a place in my heart.
very summer I visited my grandmother's
ottage. It was always warm and inviting. Our
favorite pastime was to open up an old chest
'she had slashed in the attic, put on all of her
intakee clothes and drape ourselves in her
welry. We would dance and sing for hours.
Now they're all gone. I thought I'd lost all
ose great memories until I walked into
ily and Company and saw a collection that
transported me right back to that attic. I closed
my eyes and for a few seconds I was that little
dancing girl again.

Docent Profile: Adrienne Cross
by Ray Buck
ocent Adrienne Cross
especially enjoys chatting
with visitors at the Bailey
Store. The 1926 Bailey Store,
that is. ., "
She says they like hearing that
two of the young boys pictured T
in a 1930s photograph on the 7
shelf near the magnificent roll
top desk where their father ruled
are still seen walking about in the
Bailey store. The "new" Bailey's
General Store, that is.
"They're very interested that
the Baileys are still actively pur-
suing business interests on the
island for more than one hundred
years," Cross said.
"The old store gives a good
picture of what the life was like Docent Adrienne Cross
on Sanibel back then. The Bailey
Store was the center of island
activity in those early days," she said. "I tell the ladies who just love to shop what it
was like... if Bailey's didn't have it, you didn't need it."
"The visitors ask so many questions," she adds, "so many varied questions, never
dull as they all seem to have different things that interest them. The children too get a
kick out of a lot that's there for them to touch as well as see. They love the typewriter,
the cash register, the old telephone on the wall, the old toys.
"The adults love the story of the enormous safe, a survivor of the 1926 hurricane,
that was found way out in San Carlos Bay," she notes. Other docents bringing groups
into the store (and new gift shop) seem to like telling their own versions of the story
about the old safe in the corner, she said
Cross was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. She taught kindergarten
after graduating from Dominican College. After many family moves, she arrived on
Sanibel full time in 1987. She's had (and has) an active life in island activities. In addi-


tion to being a parishioner at St. Isabel's, she served two terms on the board of the
Captiva Yacht Club and was past president of The Dunes Women's Golf Association.
Her other interests include Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, gardening and
quilting.
She likes to remind the Village guests who buzzed over on the causeway that once
not that long ago it wasn't quite that easy to get on and off this lovely barrier island.0

Rotary

Happenings


submitted by Shirley Jewell
Happy New Year from the Sanibel-
Captiva Rotary Club. Last year
was such an unsettling year for
most of us not knowing where the
American economy was going and what
might happen to the financial stabil-
ity of family and friends we eagerly
looked forward to 2010. Maybe it


N2IN TU RES IN IM )SIE

would change the karma of the uni-
verse. Maybe last year made us realize
how important the simple things in life
are; the importance of family, friends,
health, the environment, our com-
munity. Service clubs and non-profits
across our nation and around the globe
have identified these same life issues as
important avenues of focus and service,
so it is even more important for Rotary
International to continue its service in
these challenging times.
Since our Rotary club here on the
islands hasn't had regular meetings
for the last two weeks and and we
have not had any meeting or speaker
news, I thought I'd take some of this
column space to tell you about Rotary
International and what we are about.
Rotary is one of the largest and most
influential international humanitarian ser-
vice organizations in the world. Rotary's
1.2 million members worldwide belong to
more than 33,000 Rotary clubs in more
than 200 countries and geographical
areas. As volunteers, Rotary members
have been serving the needs of communi-
ties worldwide since 1905.
Rotary is a global network of business,
professional and community leaders.
Through volunteer service, the women
and men of Rotary build friendships and
enlarge their circle of business, profes-
sional and community acquaintances.
Participating in international service proj-
ects allows Rotary members to connect
with people from around the world and
promote cross-cultural understanding.

Rotary promotes peace and inter-
national understanding through its edu-
cational and humanitarian programs.
Rotary sponsors the largest privately
funded international scholarship program
in the world. Since 1947, Rotary has
contributed roughly $500 million to fund
38,000 students from 100 countries.
These cultural ambassadors use the skills
they acquire through their studies abroad
to help their communities. Rotary clubs
promote peace by initiating thousands
of humanitarian projects every year that
address the underlying causes of social
instability and conflict, such as hunger,
poverty, disease and illiteracy.
Rotary's top philanthropic goal is to
eradicate polio worldwide. Since 1985,
Rotary members have donated their time
and money to help immunize more than
two billion children in 122 countries. To
date, Rotary has contributed $800 mil-
lion and countless volunteer hours to fight
the disease. In 2007 and 2009, the Bill
and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded
$355 million in grants to The Rotary
Foundation. In return, Rotary is commit-
ted to raising $200 million by June 30,
2012.
Rotary International President John
Kenny speaks directly to the enormity of
the responsibility every Rotarian bears
early in this second century of service.
Each of us has the opportunity to make
the coming Rotary year one in which
the framework of the organization will
be strengthened through membership,
meaningful service projects and strong
support for The Rotary Foundation.

Boys And Girls

Club Fundraiser

Set For March
he date for the fourth annual It's
Twilight Time event to benefit
the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lee
County has been set for Sunday, March
28 from 6 to 9 p.m. This year the
event will once again be held in the Fort
Myers River District downtown. Again,
the Sydney & Berne Davis Art Center
will be the sponsor/VIP venue.
The event is an extravaganza, cel-
ebrating great food and fine wines from
around the world, specialty cocktails, des-
serts, and chocolates from Norman Love.
Live music will play in both the general
and sponsor/VIP areas.
Approximately 30 of the area's finest
restaurants will be participating many
of which have been supporting the event
since its inception. A number of new res-
taurants in the area will also be support-
ing the event for the first time.
"We are very excited about the venue
for our event. Last year was our first in
the River District and it is perfect for
the It's Twilight Time concept. Four
years ago at our first Twilight Time, we
had about 600 attendees each year it
has grown, and having it in downtown
Fort Myers allows us to accommodate
larger crowds without limitation. This
year we expect close to 2,000 to attend.
Downtown offers an ambience that
enhances the whole experience. We are
very pleased to have the support of the
Downtown Redevelopment Agency and
the use of the Sydney & Berne Davis Art
Center as our VIP hospitality area again
this year," said Greg Brock, co-chair of
the event.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Lee
County offer after school and summer
programs at seven club facilities to almost
2,000 youth members age six to 18 most
of whom come from single parent, low
income families.

Peek At The
Unique Sponsors
Are Needed
As the Zonta Club of Sanibel-
Captiva plans the ninth annual
A Peek at the Unique, the club's
major fundraiser set for Saturday, March
13, it's important to note that the club
relies on support from island businesses,
organizations and individuals for the
growing success of the event, a guided
tour of exclusive island homes.
"Last year the generosity of over 170
sponsors, individual donors, and busi-
nesses made the Peek a record-breaking
success," said sponsor co-chair Lynne
Campean. "We are all so grateful and
hope our generous supporters will join us
again this year to make our annual home
tour another fabulous success.
During January and February, club
members will visit businesses on Sanibel
and Captiva, describing the sponsor and
advertiser opportunities, and explaining
that the dollars raised support programs
that advance the status of women,
locally and globally. The club also aims to
expand its base of support, and has intro-
duced several creative ideas for recogniz-
ing and encouraging first-time advertisers
and sponsors. These will be explained
individually by Zonta members as they
visit the businesses. The event also
includes a raffle, A Chance at the Unique,
with tickets available later this month.
Sponsorship opportunities include:
House Sponsor ($2,000, four only):


Zontians Nancy Dreher and Lyne Campean, sponsorship co-chairs for the ninth annual A
Peek at the Unique

tisement in the keepsake program book

Council Again
Fights County
Toll Changes
by Anne Mitchell
Confident of its legal standing in
an interlocal agreement with Lee
County, the Sanibel City Council
has decided not to


even discuss the proposal of the Lee
County Department of Transportation
(DOT) to eliminate the six-month discount
toll program.
Instead, the city will send a letter to the
five Lee County commissioners with cop-
ies to DOT Deputy Director Paul Wingard
and to the county attorney stating that
any such change would violate the interlo-
cal agreement made when the bond was
issued to build the new causeway.

The Perfect Trip
by Paige Palmer
Paige Palmer is the 10-year-old
granddaughter of Marianne Kanzius
and John Kanzius, a Sanibel winter res-
ident who died in February 2009. Paige
attends elementary school in Chagrin
Falls, Ohio. She earned an "A" for this
essay class assignment.
The wind gently blew through my
hair. I could smell the salty air of
the canal water's distinct odor
fill my nostrils. I did not yet know this
would be my last boat ride (with my
grandfather). As always, when my Papa
was getting ready, my brother and I
would sit on the pink and green rock-
ing chairs watching my Papa raise the
boat with the crank. I looked back to my
grandparents' house. It was white stone,
three floors, big but not huge. They had
the canal in the back in which their two
boats, the fishing boat and the house
boat, were tethered to the dock. Their
small backyard had a small palm tree
from which hung a small wind chime
which I had given them. They had a
gravel driveway, three cars, a large
grassy front yard and stairs leading up
to the front door.
I remembered one time when my
brother and I were playing and found a
snake in the small palmetto in the middle
of the yard. When we were ready to go
on the boat, my Papa went on first. He
took off his shoes so they wouldn't scuff
the white floor, went to the driver's seat
and took out his sunglasses. He put them
on and went down into the house area
to look for life jackets for my brother and
me. We put our jackets on and jumped
on the boat with my grandma, mom,


and dad. Papa said we were going out to
The Green Flash, a restaurant on nearby
Captiva Island.
My Papa started up the boat and went
slowly through the canal. At that point,
my brother and I would go down into
the house part of the boat and play. We
were always nice to each other in Florida,
but not at home. There was a small toilet
which we weren't allowed to use, because
no one wanted to empty it. There was
a microwave, an oven, a small kitchen
area, a couch, and a small mattress. My
mom called us up when we were allowed
to drive faster and I followed my brother
up onto the deck. My Papa reed the
engine and everyone flew back in their
seats. I was used to it and just watched
the wake.
I loved the feel of the salty air whip-
ping my hair and filling all my senses
with its excited but calming essence. As
always, I looked out for dolphins. After a
while, I decided that I would try out my
dolphin call. So I clicked and whistled but
no dolphins came.
When we arrived at the restaurant we
sat down and had lunch. As we exited
into the canal leading out from the restau-
rant my Papa stopped the boat quickly.
"Hey guys look over there. There's a
manatee that I almost ran over!" he said
in that hurried way he talked. I ran to
the front of the boat and he let me out
on the front. The canal wasn't crowded
so he didn't worry about being yelled at.
I took many pictures of the manatee's
brown smooth round shape.
After we left the canal I tried my dol-
phin call again. Well, this time it worked
really well and a pod of dolphins swam
toward us. Some of them stuck their
heads out of the water; some stuck their
dorsal fins in the air. One swam under the
boat over and over again. I took so many


Mortality And Spirituality
Sanibel Congregational Church invites the community to a program on the
topic Mortality and Spirituality on Wednesday, January 20 from 11:30 a.m. to
1 p.m., presented by William R. Morrow.
Mortality is not a theoretical issue. It is the great mystery of life. But even the litera-
ture about death and dying has little to say about one's own death. As we move into
that inevitable phase of life called "elderhood," we can choose to do it consciously,
with all the spiritual supports available.
At the frontier of faith and reason, what guidelines are there for growing our spiritu-
al self? This program, led by Dr. Morrow will help us look at what resources, including
Biblical, are available 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 of
dying. It is the time to turn toward inner and spiritual life and develop a spiritual prac-
tice, which is a good prescription for any stage in one's life.
Asked about the gloomy subject matter, Morrow said, "It's already in our psyche.
The American fascination about death is all around us. We watch several deaths
an hour on prime-time TV, including high definition human corpses in disarray and
decomposition. A great number of the top 10 best selling books are mysteries involv-
ing 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. The spiritual practices presented in this program are a collection
of the best from all faiths."
The program, sponsored by the Health Ministries Team, will be presented in the
Fellowship Hall of the church, 2050 Periwinkle Way. There is no charge and everyone
is welcome.
Morrow is an ordained Presbyterian minister, a practicing psychotherapist and an
associate member of the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ. He has
devoted his career to counseling and teaching at the "flash point" where religion and
psychology intersect. He is a graduate of Yale Divinity School and Andover Newton
Theological School. He has been in private practice in Fort Myers for over 20 years.

pictures and I felt as if I were one of the
dolphins.
I really felt that day was special. I
didn't know it was my last boat ride nor
did I know it was one of the last times
I would see my Papa. He was in good
health that time before he died. I loved
that trip to Florida. We went to all the
good restaurants, and had Pinocchio's
Ice Cream most nights. That was truly
the best trip to Florida I ever had. My last
where the dolphins came up to the shore
made it extra special.
I just felt like I was an ocean animal
myself.A

principal of The Sanibel School,
Barbara Von Harten, has won a
NCTE Student Achievement Award in
Writing. A total of 1,783 high school
juniors were nominated by their schools



School Fundraiser
And Art Display
he first fundraiser of the year for
The Sanibel School will be hosted
by Cheeburger Cheeburger in
Tahitian Gardens on Tuesday, January
11 at 3 p.m.
A portion of that evening's check will
be donated to the school to supplement
the curriculum.
Across the shopping center between
Wilford & Lee Home D&cor and
Adventures In Paradise Outfitters to the
Outsiders, hangs the latest Sanibel School
Art Gallery display. Mrs. Stewart, The
Sanibel School art teacher, changes the
display monthly. Tahitian Gardens began
showing the student's work last year to
give parents the opportunity to view their
child's artwork on the fundraiser eve-
nings.
This month's art is mixed medium
and features the following young artists:
Nichole Benzrihem, Samantha Biddle,
Jacqueline Cloutier, Lochlainn Kane,
Laurwen Lockard, Chris McDonald, Gina
Radicchi, Dania Rodriguez, Deanna Taub,
Orianna Vargas, David Wright.O

from across the U.S., and Carl was
selected among the 544 winners for the
prestigious national award.
"Carl Von Harten is recognized by the
National Council of Teachers of English
to be among the best student writers in
the country," stated the letter he received
in the mail.
"I'm a proud mom!" said Barbara.
"He's always been a talented writer. I
remember in Mrs. (Jan) Manzella's class
in 1st grade he was given assignments
to write a one-page story, and his stories
would go on for 10 pages. She sparked
an interest in writing.
"He also credited his middle school
teacher Carol Smith. I think it's really
cool to be able to point to teachers who
made a difference."
In his Golden Apple nomination form,
Carl wrote of Carol Smith: "She helped
me prepare for the rigorous writing
assignments in the IB program and I have
won two awards in writing prior to win-
ning this national recognition because of
her early influence on my writing."
As a 4th grader at The Sanibel
School, Carl won the DARE essay prize;
as an 8th grader, he won the Sanibel &
Captiva Association of Realtors essay
contest.
Yet the amazing postscript to his
NCTE achievement award is the fact that
English isn't even his best subject!
Math is.
Carl recently received a perfect
800 on his math SAT test, a rare feat.
And last summer, as a member of the
Fort Myers High School Math Team,
he placed high in calculus and discrete

Carl wants to go to medical school to
pursue a career as a surgeon, and his first
choice is the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill, which has a distinguished
medical department.
"His real love is math, and his desire is
to be a physician," said Barbara. "Part of

Sanibel Fire Department Chief Dan Duncan

submitted by Eric Pfeifer
Happy New Year from Kiwanis.
It is always nice to start off the
New Year with some camarade-
rie at The Dunes and a hearty breakfast
with the brothers. That sentimental feel-
ing quickly ended when Past President
Mark Tesoro ask to be serenaded
operatically for his birthday. The warm
fruit and cold eggs quickly turned my
stomach. Roger Heider, Rob Lisenbee
and Bob Wigley all aged a little bit as
well this week. We are all geared up


for the annual Spaghetti Dinner taking
place Saturday, February 27 at The
Community House. You can't find a bet-
ter meal at a lower price.
This week, we were honored to have
the fire chief, Dan Duncan, speak to
us about the Sanibel Fire Department.
You may have a different outlook on the
pinup boys if you have seen their new
calendar, but I can tell you from a per-
sonal experience that you will not find a
more efficient response team in any city
around the country. It is not like what you
see on The Simpsons with the police and
firemen waiting outside of the 7-Eleven
stores for the fresh batch of doughnuts
to arrive. These guys are professionals
who are certified and prepared to treat
the next emergency victim. They are not
part of the City of Sanibel or Lee County.
They were created by a special taxing
district and governed by three local board
members. They are so efficient, they have
won 14 Phoenix Awards recognizing
local emergency responders who were
involved in the rescue and treatment of a
patient who has suffered sudden cardiac
arrest and was brought back to life after
being found without a pulse.
The two fire stations are staffed by 14
credential paramedics and others ready
to help. You may wonder what would
happen if their one ambulance is being
utilized and another emergency happens.
In this case, Lee County would provide
backup to help if needed. Chief Duncan
also told us that his crew is also part of
MERT (Marine Emergency Response
Team), a local team including the coast

Looking For Owls


Baby owl Melissa


The nesting season for great
horned, barn, and screech owls of
the islands has begun. The great
horned owl does not make its own nest
but uses one built by an osprey, hawk
or eagle. Screech and barn owls nest in
tree cavities made by woodpeckers or in
nest boxes. There is a nest box on the
side of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation's nature center where barn
owls have nested off and on since
1980... will they return this year? Island
screech owls are in the courting phase
with males guarding territory and calling


to females.
On Friday, January 15 at 10 a.m. the
public is invited to SCCF to learn more
about the Owls of Sanibel and Captiva.
The program is free for SCCF members
and children, $5 for others.

Orchid Society
Meeting
submitted by Nannette Lehr
Rules of Orchid Growing and How
to Break Them will be the first
topic of the New Year at the
Monday, January 18 meeting of the
Sanibel-Captiva Orchid Society. The
program will be presented by Bill and
Susan Fender of Fenders Orchids in
Venice. The meeting will take place at
1:30 p.m. at St. Michael & All Angels
Episcopal Church, 2304 Periwinkle
Way.
The Fenders began their love affair
with orchids after Bill received his first
orchid from Susan's mother in 1969.
That gift eventually led the Fenders to
open their own nursery, Fender's Flora
in 1974 in Apopka. Missing Florida's
West Coast where Bill was born, the
couple moved to Venice in 2000 where
they established their primarily Internet
business. Through the years their orchids
have received many awards from the
American Orchid Society.
Orchid novices are encouraged to
come to the meeting at 1 p.m. to hear
a member of the orchid society dis-
cuss fundamentals of orchid growing.
Participants can purchase orchids or to
do so during intermission. Anyone with
questions or an ill orchid that needs diag-
nosis can bring their plants to the meet-
ing during Show and Tell. Orchid society
members are invited to participate in a
monthly show. Ribbons are awarded for
Best Hybrid and Best Species orchids.
Members and guests are also invited to
participate in a monthly orchid raffle.
Society membership is $20 annually,
guests are $4. For more information call

Shark On The Beach


Bobcat Sighting Near Beach


photo by Graham "Got-the-Shot" DeYoung
There was a little excitement on the island Monday, December 28, on a cloudy,
cool afternoon, when Taylor "Trouble-hook" DeYoung, a 21-year-old avid fisher-
man, snared a six-foot bull shark off the beach in front of 3649 West Gulf Drive.
A crowd of about 100 onlookers applauded after Taylor fought the shark for over an
hour and finally got it to the beach. Photos were taken and children were wide-eyed
with wonder before the shark was released back into the gulf. The shark was caught
on a ladyfish about 75 feet off the shore at 3 o'clock in the afternoon.0


This bobcat was photographed in the beachside front yard of Dianne G. Murphy's Sanibel
home in the early morning of December 28.

CROW Case Of The Week:

White Pelican
by Brian Johnson
Sn December 30 Cape Coral resident Fred Weidig was
Boating in the waters near North Captiva and enjoying
the sight of a flock of white pelicans. But as he looked
more closely he noticed that one of the pelicans, in a disabled
posture, seemed stranded on a sandbar.
Weidig successfully captured the 11-pound bird and took him
to Jensen's Marina on Captiva Island, where he was soon trans-
ported to CROW.
"It was a classic presentation of toxicosis that we have seen
over and over again," said CROW Veterinarian Dr. PJ Deitschel.
"He had no blink and the beginnings of a corneal ulcer, and full
body weakness."
This bird marked the 4,200th patient of the year for CROW, the first time they had
reached that number. "It's not a number to celebrate, but if wildlife are in distress, we
want to help them," said Dr. PJ.
By New Year's Eve, the final tally for the year was 4,219 patients.
Staff gave the white pelican a homeopathic liver detox spray, artificial tears, sub-
cutaneous fluids, vitamins B and C, and Chinese herbs Qi Performance, Ginseng,
and Four Gentlemen. The theme of the treatment protocol was to support the body's
efforts at detoxification and revitalize with an infusion of energy.
CROW housed the bird in the spacious walk-in cage in the Bailee Quiet Room.
The pelican had no blink the following day nor could he hold his head up. But
they seemed to have stopped the downward spiral, and were happy that he was no
worse than the day before, as it is not uncommon for a toxicosis patient to crater after
arrival.
On January 1 the white pelican was able to hold his head up and staff noted the
beginnings of a blink; they continued to give him artificial tears every two hours. They
gave him herbs and fluids twice per day.
On January 2 he began to stand on his hocks.
"This was a huge sign in terms of his prognosis, but we know these toxicosis cases
can be a roller coaster so we monitored him closely and did not push him too hard,"
said Dr. PJ.
They held off on offering him food, as his GI-tract may not have had the capacity
to digest food properly.


His strength
seemed to surge
back on January 3
- he moved around
his cage on his
hocks and snapped
at the staff. They
offered him a fish,
but he ignored the
little meal.
The white
pelican has now
passed out of the
most dangerous
phase and is poised
to stand up and
complete his recov-
ery. Staff will move
him to an outdoor
cage in the near
future.
Looking back
on 4,219 patients
and the milestone
events at CROW,

Take What The
Day Gives You
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
S. rhis week
winter really
Asset in hard

S, | than normal tem-
-m- peratures and no
warming trend in
sight. After a week
of mornings in the
40s and daytime
highs in the 60s, fishing really slowed
down. Fishing in these cold conditions
can be tough but here are some things I
do to improve my odds:
SSome species of fish are not as
affected by the cold weather as others.
Target sheepshead, trout and grouper.
Snook fishing all but shuts down as the
water temperatures plummet. Redfish
can be caught all year in all seasons but a
sudden cold snap will quickly shut the bite
down; luckily a day or two later redfish
will turn right back on.


Use live shrimp and soft plastic
shrimp imitations. As the water in the bay
cools bait fish move out to warmer, deep-
er water and the shrimp get bigger and
more numerous. This is the time I switch
my pattern from baitfish to shrimp. The
live bait shrimp that are available right
now are some of the biggest of the year.
Fish your bait slow. Slow presenta-
tion in cold water is key as fish are mov-
ing slower and are not as aggressive. Jig
heads and split shot will help slow your
bait down in moving water. Fishing your
bait close to or on the bottom helps too
as the surface of the water is usually cool-
er than it is down deep during periods of
cold air temperatures.
When fishing jigs, a slow retrieve is
key; use short little hops and take your
time. The metabolism of fish slows as
water temperature drops. Sure they have
to feed but don't feed as hard as they do
during warmer periods.
Fish with lighter tackle, lighter line,
leader and rigs than you usually do. With
the water so clear the lighter the line the
better. I switch up to 8-10# braid and
15-20# fluorocarbon leader. Downsizing
hooks to 1/0 light wire helps too. You
will be surprised at how many more bites


you get just by downsizing.
Plan your fishing trip during the
warmest part of the day. Not only will
you be warmer but this is when fish are
generally most active during cold condi-
tions. Fish areas that are out of the wind
and warmed by the sun. If it's a pleasant
temperature to you it's probably pleasant
to the fish too. Bring warm clothes and
dress in layers so as the day warms you
can remove one layer at a time. I like to
wear rain gear over the layers when I'm
running so I can stay dry. Without the
waterproofs, one wrong wave can make
the rest of your day cold and unpleasant.


Use the winter minus low tides to
your advantage. Any time we get a strong
or prevailing north wind we will have
even more extreme low tides. These big
low tides really bunch up the fish and
with some of the clearest water of the
year some mangrove channels and deep-
er holes on the flats are like aquariums.
The "Ding" Darling Refuge is a great
example of this.
Fishing with a client right after the
first part of this cold snap, we worked
hard to get anything going but once we
found the fish we did OK. One dead-end
deeper mangrove channel produced lots
of action with rat reds and trout and even
one 27-inch snook. The extreme low tide
had put all the fish in one very small, out
of the wind area. Ninety percent of our
fish caught that day were caught on one
100-yard shoreline.
Changing your fishing tactics is never
as important as when it gets cold here in
Southwest Florida. You're generally not
going to have those stellar days of fishing
like we do in the spring and fall but a few
warm days can really turn things back on
fast. Go with the flow and take what the
day gives you. Once you do locate the
fish, a few dozen trout and rat reds and
a bonus unexpected snook make for a
great winter day on the water.
Capt. Matt Mitchell moved to Sanibel
in 1980 and has fished local waters for
more than 25 years. He now lives in St.
James City and has worked as a back
country fishing guide for more than 10
years. If you have comments or ques
tions email captmattmitchell@aol.com.

Squadron Safe Boating Course
-


Capsized boat with two survivors holding onto life rings


boat typically capsizes when not properly loaded and is hit broadside by a
wave or wake. It is a shame the survivors were not wearing life preservers.
Try sometime to put on a life preserver while in the water. How long can you
hold on to a life ring?
With the gulf water temperatures now in the 60s, boaters must be aware of the risk
of hypothermia a condition of being colder than is safe for your body. Heat loss in
the water is much greater than when dry and out of the water. At current gulf temper-
atures your survival time can be just two hours, with loss of muscle control and mental
confusion occurring earlier. Stress, shock, and low core body temperatures may cause
cardiac and respiratory failure.


ISLAND SUN JANUARY 8, 2010 21
If in the water, get out as soon as possible, shed wet clothes, get dry, and if exposed
for long, get medical attention.
Every boating captain, whether of a canoe or cruiser, should take a course in safe
boating and take pride in a properly equipped vessel and skill in its operation.

2009 was a tremendous year on many
levels: the opening of the Healing Winds
Visitor Education Center, the opening
of the new Hospital. I never would have
imagined 10 years ago that we would
have come this far. We're pleased and
proud, and have a sense of wonder for all
that has happened. The new hospital is
a joy to work in, and so much better for
our patients."

Gary Mormino
T he astonishing growth of Florida,
swelling from 500,000 residents
at the onset of the 20th century to
some 15.9 million at its end will be examined at the second 2010 Sanibel-Captiva
Audubon lecture. Entitled Land of Sunshine, State of Dreams, the lecture will be
on January 14 at 7:30 p.m., led by Dr. Gary Mormino, the author of the book of
the same name. Acclaimed as a "brilliant compilation of Florida historical data,"
Mormino's path-breaking book is the basis of this timely lecture.
With the assistance of numerous unique, historical photographs, Mormino will
probe the great social, cultural and economic forces driving modern Florida's transfor-
mation. As recently as the eve of Pearl Harbor, Florida was the lowest populated state
in the south. At the dawn of the millennium, it was the fourth largest in the country, a

Museum Hosting
Pastel Workshop


Lion's paw


On Friday, January 29, renowned
artist Karen Margulis will pres-
ent a pastel workshop exploring
the color in shells and their surround-
ings. Various pastel techniques will be
introduced and participants will learn to
build a painting with layers of color. The
workshop will continue with a demon-
stration of how to paint a shell on the
beach along with techniques for special
effects. Students will work on their own
shell paintings.
Those interested in attending must reg-
ister by January 22. The workshop will
take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the
museum, 3075 Sanibel-Captiva Road.
The workshop cost is $15. Registered
participants will be provided with a list of
supplies they will be required to bring to
the workshop.


Beach Treasure
From the time she was five and won
her first art competition, Margulis was
hooked on art. She grew up in south
Florida and spent summers in the moun-
tains of western North Carolina. Both
places have fostered her love of the
mountains and the seashore, which she
expresses in her paintings. After receiv-
ing her bachelor of arts degree from the
University of Florida, she went on to
study for her masters in art education at
Florida Atlantic University. Although she
spent the next 18 years raising her two
children, she continued to find a creative
outlet with photography. The family trav-
eled extensively throughout the U.S. and
Caribbean during this time and many of


Margulis' paintings are inspired by her
memories and photos from her travels.
She loves to paint on location, en plein
air, whenever she can. These outdoor
painting experiences help give life to her
studio work. She likes to finish a painting
in one sitting so that she can capture that
flash of inspiration which attracted her
to the subject. Pastels, with their vibrant,
immediate color suit her style perfectly.

Award Winning
Ensemble To
Take The Stage
he N-E-W Trio will perform at BIG
ARTS Thursday, January 14 at 8
p.m. Hailed by the Washington
Post as a "polished" and "ravishing"
piano trio, the N-E-W Trio has emerged
as one of the nation's most promis-
ing young ensembles after winning
the grand prizes at the 2008 Fischoff
National Chamber Music Competition,
the 2007 Coleman National Chamber
Ensemble Competition, and the string
division first prize and audience choice
award at the 2007 Plowman National
Chamber Music Competition.
Tickets are $41 loge, $36 floor, stu-
dent/child free with paying adult. The
trio will perform in BIG ARTS Schein
Performance Hall, 900 Dunlop Road,
Sanibel.
The trio performed at the
Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York
City as part of a series on Beethoven
and Schubert. In February of 2008, the
N-E-W Trio represented The Juilliard
School at the annual Conservatory
Project held at the John F. Kennedy
Center for the Arts in Washington, DC.
The trio returned to the Kennedy Center
in April as part of the inaugural concert
for Pro Musica Hebraica, an organization
dedicated to the revival of rare Jewish
classical music works, performing along-
side renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman. In
April 2007, the ensemble was honored


The N-E-W Trio


to perform at the memorial of famed
political historian Arthur Schlesinger,
where actress Lauren Bacall, Henry
Kissinger, Ted Kennedy, and former
President Bill Clinton spoke.
The N-E-W Trio's members Andrew
Wan, violin; Gal Nyska, cello; and Julio
Elizalde, piano are currently pursuing
graduate, artist diploma, and doctoral
degrees at The Juilliard School. They
have worked regularly with members of
the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio,
The Francesco Trio, The Weilerstein Trio,
and the Brentano String Quartet. As solo-
ists, each member has individually won
Juilliard's concerto competition leading to

performances at Lincoln Center.
The N-E-W Trio is an ensemble that
not only derives its name from the first
letters of the instrumentalists' surnames -
but also lives up to the "new-ness" with a
fresh approach to the trio format through
inventive playing and musical program-
ming. A Reading Eagle critic called them
a trio made in heaven."

Malacologists
To Meet At The

Dr. Jose H. Leal, director/curator
of The Bailey-Matthews Shell
Museum, has announced that
the first meeting of the Florida United
Malacologists (FUM) will be on Monday,
February 1 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at
The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum.
The one-day gathering is designed to
enhance communication among profes-
sional, amateur, and student malacolo-
gists, with topics including but not lim-
ited to biology, ecology, paleontology,
archaeology, and conservation.
FUM follows the pattern estab-
lished by similar informal gatherings
such as BAM (Bay Area Malacologists),
SCUM (Southern California United
Malacologists), MAM (Mid-Atlantic
Malacologists), and OVUM (Ohio (River)
Valley United Malacologists). There is
no formal membership and there are no
dues, officers, nor publications. However,
presenters were required to submit a
brief abstract limited to 150 words or
less. Seventeen abstracts have been
received. Abstracts will be posted on the
museum Web site. The gathering will be
free of charge to presenters and museum
members. Non-members will be asked to
donate the museum admission fee of $7.
The public is encouraged to attend.
Participants are strongly encouraged to
ask questions and discuss data, compare
notes on methods and problems, and get
acquainted with presenters and members
of the audience. Presentations, limited
to 15 minutes plus five minutes for ques-
tions, will be informal and will cover cur-
rent research and collection efforts and
issues.
The FUM program including abstracts,
times, and sequence of presentations will
be posted on the museum Web site at
www.shellmuseum.org.

Tolls
Vice Mayor Kevin Ruane researched
the agreement last July when the DOT
proposed to eliminate all the discount
programs on the Sanibel Causeway. That
plan was dropped by the county after
much opposition from islanders and a
reminder from the city of its legal stand-
ing. Any changes would need the approv-
al of the county commission.
He said, "I read the bond and saw
we had a settlement agreement that we
would give up our 21 percent of tolls
(in return for the discount program).
We gave up about $800,000 a year to
purchase the discount program until the
junior lien is paid off between 2012 and
2016. I can't believe that six months later
we are at the same juncture. We have a
written document, a written settlement
agreement. It is in black and white -
honor it." he said.
Ruane said if Sanibel allows the DOT
to barter it will weaken the city's argu-
ment.
Wingard says the move would "elimi-
nate our renewal spike in April and it
allows us to pursue a rolling renewal peri-
od. In doing this someone could come in
and purchase a program at any time, for
one year, thus leveling out the renewal
spike we currently get in October." The
change would mean part-time residents
would have to pay the annual fee.
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.
Wingard also proposes eliminating the
motorcycle discount so that motorcyclists
will pay the same as automobiles and
other two-axle vehicles.4

Store Owner Says
Farmers Market

Hurts Sales
by Anne Mitchell
he Sanibel Farmers Market has
proven highly popular with the
public but Kip Cote, owner of The
Cheese Nook, says the weekly market is
hurting her business.
She told the Sanibel City Council on
Tuesday that she and her husband moved
here from Michigan in 2007 and bought
a home, which they put up as collateral
to buy the long-established Periwinkle
Place business in 2008.
"I have had the worst economy in
history to deal with and I am now com-
peting with the farmers market for busi-
ness." She said her sales were 38 percent
lower in 2009 than in 2008 and since
the start of the farmers market foot traffic
has declined. "I will get a pity sale of a
$1.99 jar of jam" after the market ends,
she said, but such sales won't help her
pay her rent.
Cote asked council to allow the market
just once a month and limit it to items
not sold on the island. "They take money

out of our pockets," she said.
Cote made her plea during public
comment and since the item was not on
the agenda, council did not debate it.
However, Councilman Peter Pappas told
her she would not be ignored.
Later, in an agenda item, Jean Baer,
co-manager of the farmers market,
received council's permission to use
overflow parking on vacant property
at Periwinkle Way and Purdy Drive.
However, council denied her request for
funding for an addition $6,880 for addi-
tional police duty needed. Pappas said
while he thinks the market is "wonder-
ful," he could not allow public money to
be spent on businesses competing with
others on the island.
Mayor Mick Denham said the city has
made a commitment to the farmers mar-

Baer said island businesses are wel-
come to participate in the market and
several do. She said farmers markets

studies show 25 to 60 percent of people

Back To Square
One For Big
Home Ordinance
by Anne Mitchell
It took nearly two years to create -
and less than an hour to tear down
to its foundation. The draft ordinance
amending section 86-43 of Sanibel's
land development code failed Tuesday
by a 4-1 vote with Mayor Mick Denham
dissenting.
However, some of the work the
planning commissioners put into craft-
ing changes that would limit the size of
homes on the island in keeping with the
rhythm and harmony of each neighbor-
hood may be salvaged in the form of
guidelines for planning staff to use when
dealing with applications.
Several speakers said the existing
ordinance has worked well for years.


Jack Samler, a realtor and former plan-
ning commission chairman, said less than
one-tenth of one percent of homes go
through the variance process. We are try-
ing to address it with this massive, correc-
tive ordinance."
Vice Mayor Kevin Ruane said under
the proposal, 50 of the 83 properties
listed as the largest in their subdivision
are less than 3,700 square feet and 71
are less than 4,300 square feet. "I really
struggle with requiring (such) people to
pay a long form permit fee and maybe
going to an architect and an attorney."
Ruane also wants broader notifica-
tion for neighbors in the permitting
process for new homes and expansion
and remodeling of existing homes. Lack
of notification was a big factor in com-
plaints from residents, who want to be
forewarned of what's planned in their
neighborhoods.
He also wants to set a dollar amount
that would trigger neighbor notification
- but not a long form permit for con-
struction permits.
The planning commission had pro-
posed to require new homes larger than
the largest house in established subdivi-
sions to go through the public hearing
process to obtain a permit, a lengthier
and more costly process than usual.
But in studying square-footage under
air data provided by the Lee County
Property Appraiser at Sanibel's request,
some council members feared that the
amendments could be too restrictive in
some neighborhoods and in others might
encourage more large homes. That data
shows the size of the largest home in

From page 29
Home Ordinance
each of the island's more than 80 neigh-
borhoods.
"One of the most island streets on
Sanibel is Cardium yet the largest home
is over 5,000 square feet, so are we pro-
tecting the neighborhood?" said Samler.
No. We are going in the other direction."
Councilman Marty Harrity noted that
according to the data, the largest home
in Periwinkle Pines is 1,708 square feet
under air, a very modest size but one that
would set the threshold for those to fol-
low.
Some interesting details emerged from
the square-footage figures:
The home with the most air-condi-
tioned space on Sanibel is 10,452 square
feet on West Gulf Drive
A home in Chateaux-Sur-Mer with
a previously stated volume of around
12,000 square feet has just 5,482 square
feet under air
On Main Street, an older neighbor-
hood of mostly small cottage-type homes,
the largest house is 2,653 square feet
The largest home in Sea Loft on
Middle Gulf Drive is just 1,424 square
feet
Not all planning commissioners are
in agreement with the proposed amend-
ments and some council members have
expressed concerns.
Earlier data provided by the property
appraiser regarding the size of island
homes included features such as lower
level storage, cathedral ceilings and decks.
Lee County's methodology for determin-
ing the size of a home was highly con-


tentious during months of hearings on a
controversial application for a large home
in Chateaux-Sur-Mer last year.

Blind Pass
Ribbon Cutting
January 15
by Anne Mitchell
lind Pass, which was dredged
open last summer, will be officially
opened at a ceremony at 10 a.m.
on Friday, January 15.
The pass, which is between Sanibel
and Captiva, was closed for eight years
due to storm induced shoaling and infill-
ing, disturbing the historically pristine
marine ecosystem.
The Captiva Erosion Prevention
District (CEPD) Board of Commissioners,
Sanibel Mayor Mick Denham, mem-
bers of the Lee County Board of
Commissioners and officials from the
Florida Department of Environmental
Protection will attend the event.
Free parking will be available at the
Bowman's Beach parking lot and South
Seas Island Resort with free trolley ser-
vice to Blind Pass. There will be no park-
ing on site.
The pass had an unscheduled open-
ing at the end of July 2009, just days
before the project was complete, when
gulf waters burst through the containment
cell wall.
For more information about Blind Pass
or the ribbon cutting event, call the CEPD
at 472-2472.

Abigail was deeply involved in the poli-
tics of her time and extremely outspo-
ken about her opinions.
While John Adams represented
Massachusetts and the country, his wife
manned the homefront, taking care

their children. And yet the relationship
between her and John was surprisingly
romantic.

by Priscilla Friedersdorf
F lorida author Charlie Diemer com-
bines his writing skills with his legal
background in a new action adven-
ture novel, Pearl of Tao. Diemer was a
county prosecutor for 25 years before
retiring to Florida. Diemer will sign cop-
ies of his book on Wednesday, January
13 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Island Book
Nook, 2330 Palm Ridge Road.
A body is found on Lover's Key,
"Dead, very obviously dead," Frank
Johnson observes as Lee County deputies
arrive on the scene. There are numer-
ous bite marks indicating death by a
large animal attack; but Johnson notes
the absence of blood or animal tracks.
Johnson has recently been hired as a
consultant by a wealthy family living on
the key; his duties include keeping the six-
tyish and well-preserved Monique Moritz
reassured, calm and not bored.

romantic tie to Stephanie, a beautiful
woman he left behind in Saint Paul in
order to become a ski bum in Steamboat
Springs, and a budding relationship with
ski-bunny Angeline, the persistent daugh-
ter of his new employer.
In response to a question from
Angeline, Frank describes the precepts of
Taoism and its founder Lao-Tzu; among
them the history of the Pearl of Tao
which was found after two centuries in
the sea near the Philippines. The chief
judge of the federal court in Colorado had
ordered The Pearl held in a bank vault
in Colorado Springs until ownership is
determined.
Diemer weaves amusing dialogue
with intrigue as the mystery progresses.
Monique displays the traits of a matronly
mother, rich, spoiled and self-centered;
her daughter, Angeline is bored and in
hot pursuit of the handsome Frank.
Another body is found by Frank, a
man apparently dead after being tortured;
are these two deaths related, is a wild
animal at large, possibly a man-eating
bear? Frank is now considered under
suspicion by the local sheriff, as a person
of interest having some part in this crime.
The plot becomes more involved when
two Pakistani citizens, Muslims named
Haquan and Faroque, are missing as
well as the Pearl of Tao which has been
stolen from The Museum of Art in Ft.
Lauderdale.
A Chinese interest in the pearl is evi-
denced by a wealthy believer in Lao-Tzu;
Lingbao Chang. Thus zealots from two
of the world's major religions, Taoism
and Islam, seek this precious and prized
religious artifact. Chang has had a divine
vision that he must be the savior of The
Pearl, "It must not be delivered into the
wrong hands." Chang is instrumental in
finding The Pearl but is it The Pearl? A
mystery which has been well-crafted by
Diemer with a surprise ending.

Grownup Stories
Return To Library
stories for Grownups at the Sanibel
Public Library will be back again
this season starting January 8 at
2 p.m. with storyteller Dr. Sidney B.
Simon leading the group. The series is
on the first Friday of each month in
January, February and March.
Stories For Grownups has been a
highlight at the Sanibel Library for at least
a dozen years. Started by Maggie and
Steve Mullins, it continues with the help
of a volunteer committee that includes
Beth Gillis, Sylvia Chamberlain and
Sidney B. Simon.
Remember how you loved story hour
when you were a kid. Maybe you were
lucky enough to be in a family where the
stories were passed around the dining
room table. Perhaps you have memories
of a roaring camp fire and the stories that
went with it, or maybe you had someone
tell you stories before you fell asleep.
Well, we're not kids anymore, so now
we have Stories for Grownups. Often,
they're about memories of childhood,
sometimes funny stories about rearing
children, and because Sanibel is Sanibel,
there are stories about grandchildren
doing grandchildren sorts of things.
Some stories are about the issues of
getting older, and about waiting in doc-
tors' waiting rooms. There are about
marriage and divorce and making sense
out of the chaos and confusion of being a
Grown Up. Frequently, there are stories

Lost Combinations
by Sidney B. Simon
There's a bike chain, blue as sky,
unrusted, strangely,
but no one knows the combination,
three numbers, lost.
A minor frustration in the day, except
it conjures,
haunts, combinations I have lost that
weren't on chains.
You have any of those? Relationships
that started
with a sacred flare of newness and
whimpered.
The combination wasn't right, three
numbers got lost,
complaints, whining, passion dry as
dust, those three.
Only they weren't just minor frustra-
tions in a routine day.
Sometimes, it takes a year, once six-
teen years, to get unchained.
Sidney B. Simon is Professor
Emeritus, University of Massachusetts.
His books on Values Clarification made
him internationally famous, and took
him to the Oprah show and got him on
Phil Donahue. He's finishing up a book,
View From The Gulf, about people in
some mythical Florida condo, growing
old, and sometimes with all their values
clarified. This year, before he gets too
old, is the year he hopes it will be pub-
lished.
On The Island, Simon is active
in The Island Writers, a member of
On Stage At BIG ARTS. He emcees
the popular First Friday Stories For

Monday Night Movie
The Secret
Of The Grain
by Priscilla
Friedersdorf
1r v A recent film,
J The Secret
of the Grain,
Swill be shown on
Monday evening,
January 11 at BIG
ARTS. It takes
place in the French
Mediterranean port
of Sete. We see
this town not from a tourist perspec-
tive but from the viewpoint of first and
second generation Tunisian immigrants.
The economy they have always relied
on, the fishing industry, is in decline and
those on the bottom rung suffer most.
Sixty-one-year-old Slimane (Habib
Boufares) is the patriarch of an extended
family; he suffers the indignity of being
fired from his job in a boatyard after
working there 35 years. His plight has
repercussions through his extended fam-
ily; his ex-wife, their feisty daughters and
a son, a compulsive philanderer with a
Russian wife.
Slimane lives on his own in a rundown
hotel and has a new lover, Latifa, with a
vivacious young daughter, Rym. Based
on the Tunisians' love of eating, "When
there's couscous, the world disappears for
me," someone says Slimane rehabs a
derelict fishing boat to feature his former
wife's renowned fish couscous. In spite




j ^ "


;

of the racism of French bureaucrats, long
festering family squabbles and various
pitfalls, Slimane with Rym as his assistant
eventually prevails.
Director Abdellatif Kechiche won
France's Cesar in 2009 for best picture
and also top prizes at the Venice Film
Festival. Hafsia Herzi as Rym also won
top prizes at these film festivals.

38 ISLAND SUN JANUARY 8, 2010

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF JANUARY 11, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) That
lower-than-acceptable performance you're
getting from others in your group might be
the result of miscommunication. If so, correct
it before serious problems arise later on.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unex-
pected situation could call for a change of
plans. If so, you might feel that this is unfair.
But it's best to make the needed adjustments
now. There'll be time later for rescheduling.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The new
year brings opportunities you might want to
look into. Some might be more interesting
than others. But take time to look at all of
them before you make any decisions.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It's a
good idea to be careful about expenses until
you've worked out that pesky financial prob-
lem. You might find it advisable to get some
solid advice on how to proceed.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Romance
looms large over the Leonine aspect. Single
Lions looking for love should find Cupid
very cooperative. Paired Cats can expect a
renewed closeness in their relationships.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Making contact with a former colleague
might not be high on your list of priorities.
But it could pay off personally as well as pro-
fessionally. Avoid bringing up any negatives
about the past.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A
personal relationship could face added stress
because of a situation involving someone
close to both of you. Be supportive and,
above all, try to avoid playing the blame
game.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
You might well find some lingering uncer-


tainties about a decision. If so, take that as a
warning that you might not be ready to make
that move yet. More study would be in order.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Music is a dominant theme for
Sagittarians right now, and it should remind
you to make a greater effort to restore some
much-needed harmony in that very special
relationship.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Although family matters might demand
much of the Sea Goat's attention this week,
you'll want to try to make time to handle
those all-important workplace situations as
well.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February
18) A recurring unresolved issue might need
to be revisited before you can move forward.
Consider asking someone familiar with the
situation to act as an impartial counselor.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Ignore pressure to make a decision. Keeping
your options open is still the wisest course, at
least until you're sure you've learned all you
need to know about the matter at hand.
BORN THIS WEEK: You're capable
of great loyalty to those around you, which is
one reason you can count on devotion from
friends and family.


On Jan. 12, 1888, the so-called
Schoolchildren's Blizzard kills 235 people,
many of them children on their way home
from school, across the Northwest Plains
region of the United States. The storm came
with no warning, and the temperature fell
nearly 100 degrees F. in just 24 hours.
*On Jan. 16, 1919, the 18th Amendment
to the U.S. Constitution, prohibiting the
"manufacture, sale, or transportation of intox-
icating liquors for beverage purposes," is


ratified and becomes law. Large-scale distri-
bution of alcoholic beverages and organized
crime flourished anyway.
On Jan. 11, 1949, on Connecticut
Avenue in Washington, D.C., the comer-
stone is laid at the first mosque of note in
the United States. The Islamic Center was
complete with a 160-foot minaret from which
prayers were to be announced.
On Jan. 17, 1950, 11 men steal more
than $2 million from the Brinks Armored Car
depot in Boston. It was almost the perfect
crime, as the culprits weren't caught until
January 1956, just days before the statute of
limitations for the theft expired. Only a small
part of the money was ever recovered; the
rest is fabled to be hidden in the hills north of
Grand Rapids, Minn.
On Jan. 14, 1969, an explosion aboard
the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, the first-
ever nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, kills
27 people in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. A rocket
accidentally detonated, destroying 15 planes
and injuring more than 300 people.
On Jan. 15, 1974, the first episode of
"Happy Days" airs, portraying the comic
antics of 1950s Milwaukee high-school stu-
dent Richie Cunningham and his pal Potsie
Webber. A minor character, super-cool biker
Arthur "the Fonz" Fonzarelli, soon came to
be the show's central character.


It was British author Douglas Adams,
best known for writing the science-fiction
comedy series "The Hitchhiker's Guide to
the Galaxy," who made the following sage
observation: "Human beings, who are almost
unique in having the ability to learn from the
experience of others, are also remarkable for
their apparent disinclination to do so."


The original Colonel Sanders earned a
grand total of 5 cents for every chicken sold
in his early stores.
The ubiquitous holiday tune "Jingle
Bells" was written in 1857 by James L.
Pierpont, music director of a Unitarian
church. It was written for a Thanksgiving
performance, though, not for Christmas.
Interestingly, it became the first song broad-
cast from space on Dec. 16, 1965, when
Gemini 6 astronauts Tom Stafford and
Wally Schirra used a smuggled harmonica
and sleigh bells in a rendition for Mission
Control.
The katydid hears sounds through spe-
cial holes in its hind legs.
During Prohibition, a bootlegger was so
called because many smugglers of illicit alco-
hol stored their liquor in flasks hidden in the
upper part of their boots.
After many years of success in
Hollywood, actor, director and screenwriter
David Arquette tried his hand at professional
wrestling, becoming World Championship
Wrestling's World Heavyweight Champion
in 2000.
It's not widely known that iconic
American author Mark Twain was also an
actor -- albeit briefly. He played himself in
the 1907 film "A Curious Dream."
Benjamin Franklin advocated for the
turkey to be our national bird rather than the
eagle. He argued that the turkey was a "bird
of courage," while the eagle was of "bad
moral character" and didn't "get his living
honestly."


"I never hated a man enough to give him
his diamonds back." -- Zsa Zsa Gabor

A Yankee Doodle
Dandy At
Broadway Palm
by Di Saggau
Gleorge M! is
a fast-paced
SBe uJ Dmusical spec-
tacular about the
life of George M.
Cohan, the first big
giant of American
musical theater.
It's showing now
at Broadway Palm
Dinner Theatre, star-
ring John Ramsey, as the unforgettable
George Michael Cohan. Ramsey has
caught my eye several times at Broadway
Palm. I loved him as the emcee in
Cabaret and now I can say the same about
his role in George M!.
The show pretty much belongs to him
because he is almost always on stage sing- John Ramsey is George M
ing or dancing, or both. Ramsey exudes
the enthusiasm and arrogance of Cohan. He glides about the stage in perfect control,
treating the audience to all those wonderful songs. This includes Give My Regards to
Broadway, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Harrigan, You're a Grand Old Flag, and many
more. The production draws on the 1942 Jimmy Cagney biopic.

George Cohan is a man full of confidence, probably too much. He starts out with
his parents's vaudeville act, and quickly works his way up to Broadway. Sure, he gets
knocked down a few times, but he's always able to get back on his feet. In his mind
he's moving faster then Broadway.
He reigns as the man who owns Broadway, for 25 years in the early 1900s. Then
along come some other names to remember, like Jolson, Durante, Cantor and Benny.
He has to eat humble pie, and that isn't easy for a man with his ego. Cohan makes a
comeback in a 1937 musical about President Roosevelt, which was a triumph for him.
The choreography in this show is exceptional and credit goes to award-winning
Ann Neiman. The sets and costumes are also well done and important to the produc-
tion. As always, the ensemble is as good as it gets with many taking on multiple roles.
Jenny Hollander is someone I've enjoyed for years. In the first act she plays Madame
Grimaldi, owner of a boarding house, and she really makes the most of the role.
She is also Ma Templeton, and I know it was her in a red wig playing the piano
for rehearsals in another scene. Whenever she's on stage she's in full character and a
delight to watch.
The Cohan family is played by Tommy Vance, Kristen Marie, and Allison Fund.
Cohan's wives are played by Kara Farmer and Chelsea Witiak. They and all the others
make this show one not to be missed.
George M! plays through February 14, at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, 1380
Colonial Boulevard, in Fort Myers. For tickets call 278-4422, or visit

Island Cinema Academy
Award Series: Ul in the Air


George Clooney and Vera Farmiga
by Priscilla Friedersdorf
he series of films thought to be contenders for Academy Awards continues at
1 p.m. on Wednesday, January 13 at the Island Cinema with Up in the Air.
This film by director Jason Reitman stars George Clooney as Ryan Bingman,
a corporate hired gun whose job requires that he travel continuously around the
country; his expertise is firing people. His organization has found a booming niche
market among companies too squeamish to do their own dirty work.
Bingman has piled up air miles and established a relationship with another frequent
flyer (Vera Farmiga) and they cozily coordinate their hotel stayovers. Bingman's idyll
is upset when his company hires a fresh, bright, full-of-ideas recent Cornell graduate
(Anna Kendrick) to accompany him on his trips.
This film is near the top of every list of Academy Award contenders. 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 January 13 is Nancy Carlile.A

Sleigh Bells Ring,
Are You Listening
% I by Bryan Hayes
O .K., enough
is enough.
I love the
holidays as much
as the next guy,
but... anyway. I am
going to ease into
2010 very slowly.
This week's article
is not going to
cover air condition-
ing, heat or even electrical. It's going
to cover what it's like to be married to
yours truly.
God bless my wife. I came up with this
idea about three weeks ago that it would
be great if immediately after Christmas
day we drove to N.J. When I proposed
this to my wife she gave me that look.
You know the look I am talking about,
the look that conveys amazement, disbe-
lief and are you stupid and out of your
mind? All at the same time, in the same
look. Now let me defend myself here. I
ask you, what is so crazy about hosting
a bunch of people for Christmas Eve,
then going to a gathering at friends for
Christmas day and then loading up four
kids at four in the morning into the family
truckster with all the cold weather gear
that we had to purchase and drive for


two days just so the kids can see snow.
And seeing snow is a gamble at best. It's
not at all unusual for it to be the end of
January for a good snow to happen in
Northern New Jersey. I will not bore you
to death with all the details, just some of
the highlights.
We left Sanibel on Saturday the 26th,
arrived in NJ. on Sunday the 27th. Side
note: I had plugged the address of where
we were staying into my phone for
Mapquest,= so upon arrival we could go
straight to the house; only problem was
no phone service, therefore no map. Our
friends were out of town until the next
day, so we couldn't call them. Needless
to say my wife was not happy after two
days of travel, we are now driving around
the mountains of Jersey and do not know
where we are going and it's getting dark.
We finally make it to our gracious
friend's house. They live on top of a ski
mountain. You can sit there and sip hot
cocoa and watch the chair lift spin around
for hours. We had a great time, it snowed
and was beautiful, we saw lots of deer
roaming around in the woods, we made
snow angels and snow men (my daughter
wanted a snow penguin, so we made
one of those), we had snowball fights, we
went to a bonfire, we watched fire works,
the kids tried snowboarding, I pretended
I still knew had to ski and in the end did
a great deal of reminiscing with friends
and family over old times and made some
new memories that will last a lifetime.

Mini Golf Winners


4ia \


* 4


John Britton and Jack Uhlman won first
place

ack Ulhman, 14, is a lucky young
man. He has spent Christmas vaca-
tion on Sanibel with his family ever
since he can remember. Escaping the
cold winter in Ohio, the family comes
here to bike, visit the beach and play
miniature golf. When the family found
out about the holiday indoor miniature
golf course set up at The Community
House, they made playing a few rounds
each visit a family tradition.


Ed Lockard and Drew Donnelly of the
Sanctuary Golf Club team won second
place
The miniature golf course is set up
by islander Tony Lapi, who designed the
course and business sponsorship idea 15
years ago as a way to raise funds to offset
the operating costs of The Community
House. This year Lapi added a new event
to the usual four days of play; a two-
person Best Ball tournament on the fifth
day, December 29. For a $50 team entry
fee, a cash prize of $500 for first place,
$300 for second place and $200 for
third place would be paid out to the win-
ning teams. Twenty teams registered to
participate in the 6 p.m. shotgun start.


Participant Randy Faber with Brian
Cunningham, third place winner along with
team mate Tom Hensel (not pictured)

Jack and his uncle John Britton
teamed up to play and visited the course
to practice their putting in the days
prior. Jack knew the course well and is
a good putter even on a real golf course
according to his uncle. The two took
first place with an incredible score of 33.
Jack was undecided when asked what
he will do with the money, but the team
was all smiles. Second place went to the
Sanctuary Golf Club team. Ed Lockard,
director of golf, and Drew Donnelly, head
golf professional, took the prize with a
score of 35. Third place was taken by


local Brian Cunningham (who helped
organize the event) and his team mate,
Tom with a score of 36.
The Sanibel Community Association,
would like to thank all the business
sponsors that supported the 2009 mini
golf season. The funds raised help the
association in its mission to enrich com-
munity spirit through educational, cul-
tural and social gatherings in the historic
Community House.#

Best Of The Best In High School
Basketball Played While Worst Of
The Worst Drew Guns On Each Other
by Ed Frank
wo events of the past week one here in Fort Myers and
one involving two players, or shall we say two thugs, of
the NBA Washington Wizards provide a true dichoto-
my in the world of sports.
The best in high school basketball came here for the second
City of Palms Classic featuring future collegiate athletes who
dream of stardom in the NBA.
For the second straight year, Winter Park's Austin Rivers, the
son of Boston Celtics Coach Doc Rivers and the younger brother
of Jeremiah Rivers, a starting guard at Indiana University, was
voted the tournament MVP.
Rivers and dozens of other youngsters who played here are teenage role models
who have bright futures on and off the basketball court.
But can the same be said for the characters making millions playing professional
basketball, football and to some degree other sports?
The shocking episode last week where Wizards teammates Gilbert Arenas and
Javaris Crittenton drew guns on each other in the Wizards' locker room after arguing
over gambling debts is a disgusting example of the negative culture of the NBA.
It should not be tolerated. Both should be suspended without pay for at least the
remainder of this season. And both should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Arenas' career has been marked by turmoil and trouble. But bringing three guns
in to the team locker room to settle a card-playing dispute reaches a new low in igno-
rance.
The bleeding hearts will cry that his troubled youth's loose cannon behavior is a
result of abandonment by his mother.
Perhaps so. But is this the image the NBA wants to convey? The league reached
an all-time low a few years ago as the result of the riot at the Piston's Palace at
Auburn Hills. Heavy fines and suspensions were leveled by the NBA. But at least guns
were not pulled during that mayhem.
We would hope that NBA Commissioner David Stern will act quickly and strongly
in the latest matter. But it's doubtful that anything he does will restore the once-proud
image of the NBA.
The Maurer Watch Already Has Begun
The Minnesota Twins' Joe Mauer, who could become baseball's greatest all-time
catcher, has a year remaining on his contract, but already the dollar signs big dollar
signs are dangling before his eyes.
The current American League MVP is entering the final year of a four-year $34
million contract, but that figure pales in comparison to what he will get the next time
around.
The word is out in baseball circles that the New York Yankees will offer the Twins
two promising catching prospects as part of a trade to bring Mauer to the Big Apple.


Should he become a free agent at the end of the 2010 season, it is likely he will
fetch a multi-year contract in excess of $100 million. And if history is any indication,
the Twins will not open their bank vault that wide.
The home-town Mauer has said he wants to remain a Twin. And it would be a
major public relations blunder if Minnesota doesn't re-sign this future Hall of Famer.
We'll hear plenty about the Mauer watch in the weeks and months ahead.
Everblades Two and Two on 11-Game Road Trip
In the midst of a grueling 11-game road trip, the Florida Everblades won two and
lost two last week to retain a second-place hold in the South Division of the ECHL.
Florida won two of three from Gwinnett and lost a 4-1 decision to first-place South
Carolina.
Over the next nine days, the Everblades face Elmira for two games this weekend,
Sunday and Wednesday at Reading, and next weekend at Trenton. They began the
week with a 17-13-5 season record.
Three Florida players, two of whom are no longer with the team, were named
recently to the ECHL All-Star Game.
Forward Jacob Micflikier was named as a starter. Also selected was forward
Brandon Buck and defenseman AJ Thelen. Micflikier has been called up by Albany of
the American Hockey League and Thelen by Rochester by the AHL.M

Up For Golf

S T see people every
day come to
S.play golf at The
Dunes. Some arrive
well before their
tee time and some
screech into the
parking lot with
just enough time to
run to the first tee. Here are a few tips
to get loose and ready to play your best
golf more often.
1. Arrive at least 30 minutes before
your tee time. There's nothing worse than
adding time pressure to your brain before
trying to relax and have a smooth tempo
to your golf swing.

2. Do some light stretches. Stretch
your hamstrings, back, shoulders, fore-
arms, hands and fingers.
3. Hit a maximum of 25 practice balls.
Start with a wedge and move up to driver,
about five balls apiece. We only want to
loosen up here, try not to focus on swing
technique.
4. Chip and putt for 10 minutes. We
want to learn the speed of the greens and
get a feel for the short putts that will be
crucial in a few minutes on the first hole.
If you do not have enough time for #1,
#2 or #3 at least do #4!

Golf Tournament
To Benefit Island
Community
The Good Neighbor Community
Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva
(GNCFSC) will host the eighth
annual Sanctuary Community Golf
Challenge on Saturday, January 23 at
the Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the
Good Neighbor Community Foundation
of Sanibel-Captiva.
The event begins at 10:30 a.m.
with brunch, followed by a 12:30 p.m.
shotgun start with a Florida Scramble
format. The event will conclude with
drinks and hors d'oeuvres and a chance
to win big in the popular helicopter ball
drop. This year's honorary chairpersons
are John and Donna Schubert. The
2010 Tournament Committee members
are Ann Arnoff, Francis Bailey, Bob
Chrenc, Drew Donnelly, Terry Igo, Brian
Johnson, Martin Packard, and Arlene
Knox.
Participants may sign up by calling the
Sanctuary Golf Shop at 472-6223. Event
partnerships are also still available, includ-
ing Diamond Level $5,000, Platinum
Level- $2,500, Gold Level- $1,500,
and Silver $150. Diamond, Platinum,
and Gold levels of partnership include
several benefits, including four player
spots in the event, special recognition,
and additional rounds of golf and dining
at the Sanctuary Golf Club. Contact Drew
Donnelly at the Sanctuary Golf Club at
472-6223 for more information.
Last year's event was a huge success.
The sold-out field raised over $74,000
for the Good Neighbor Community
Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva. These
funds were used in three ways: in direct
community grants to help islanders in
need; in the GNCFSC competitive grant
cycle to help nonprofits that serve island
residents by enhancing local education,
the environment, arts and culture, animal
welfare, historic preservation, and human
services; and in endowment building of
GNCFSC's Good Neighbor Fund. In
total, the seven previous golf events have
raised over $449,000 to benefit the
island communities.
The Good Neighbor Community
Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva was
established in 2000 as a division of
the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation to assist island non-profit
organizations and individual island resi-
dents and workers in crisis. The mission
of the Community Foundation is to
promote philanthropy and build a spirit
of community to enhance the quality of
life for residents and employees of the
islands, now and for generations to come,
through the stewardship of permanently
endowed funds. Since 2000, the local
foundation has distributed nearly $3 mil-
lion in grants and scholarships.0

Define real cold. Ask that question
in a variety of places and you'll
get many answers.
To outdoor workers in South Florida it


may be 66 degrees... that's the point you
see the parka hoods go up among lawn
and golf course crews.
Attitudes change with the latitudes, as
one state auto license proclaims.
Kids raised around the bottom end
of Florida think the south suburbs of the
North Pole begin in the middle of Tampa
Bay. They can work all day in summer
heat that wilts a Yankee, but coagulate
at temperatures some northerners call
warm.

Golfers are a different breed. They will
plod through rain, thunder and mud in
their pursuit of a little white ball. And they
will keep swinging their clubs on morn-
ings sane people are adding blankets.
Maybe it is because many of them
just returned from places where the tem-
peratures were at or below zero, but fully
one third of the Beachview Men's Golf
Association roster showed up on January
2 to greet the New Year on a morning in
the 40s.


ISLAND SUN JANUARY 8, 2010 47
It is possible that antifreeze taken
aboard in the celebrations surrounding
the start of 2010 strengthened some.
In any event, everyone survived the
18 holes of a Shamble tournament. The
Shamble is a game in which you all drive,
select the best ball and everyone plays
their own ball from that point.
Because ordinary golfers get to launch
their attack from spots much closer to the
green the scores can get pretty low.

Member Of

The Month
The City of Sanibel Recreation
Department recognizes Member of
the Month Kerry Cooper. Cooper
started visiting Sanibel in 1968 with his
parents and has resided on Sanibel since
1980. Upon its opening, Cooper joined
the recreation center due to his family's
love for working out. His wife, Carolyn,
has been a group fitness instructor at
the recreation center since its opening.
Cooper said, "Being a member of the
recreation center has been beneficial to
my overall health through the education-
al offerings on various health concerns
such as body composition analysis,
blood pressure checks and even skin
cancer screenings. Now having the rec-
reation center open means that I can
workout when it fits my busy schedule.
Another benefit of the recreation center
is the youth after-school program for
our children. It has enabled my family to
create those extra hours of work for our
jobs. Overall, the opening of the recre-


Kerry Cooper
ation center has been a positive attribute
for the community."
The Sanibel Recreation Center is
located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road.

Sanibel 8-Ball Pool
League
H highlights from Week 13:
Captain Kip Buntrock's One
Ball Wonders crept into second
place in the league's standings with a
solid 10-6 win over Sanibel Cafe. The
Wonders are now a game ahead of
Captain Doc Lubinski's Fresh Legion
Crew and the two teams meet next
Monday. Much trash talking has already
begun and both captains are expected
to field their top players for the contest.
Spectators are invited to view the battle
at American Legion Post 123, 6 p.m.,
on Monday, January 11.
Again, only two players achieved per-
fect 4-0 scores in the night's play. Jimbo
Gaubatz from the One Ball Wonders
racked up his second 4-0 in a row and
Rich Ennis from Bunt's Ball Busters
bounced back with a 4-0 after a disas-
trous 1-3 outing last week.
Sanibel Cafe recruited a new player to
their roster. His name is Randy Carson


but after astounded viewers watched him
make several almost 90 degree cuts he
was renamed the "Cut King." Randy's
four games were the first he's played in
two years and his cutting miracles earned
him two wins out of four games played.#

So low in fact that a one-point spread
separated first from fourth in this particu-

were necessary to determine the photo
finish.
Helmut Peters, Bill Sartoris, Rene
Lohser and Jack Tukey had the win-
ning 100. Barry Humphries, Guy Tober
and Dave Bugby (plus a blind draw) also
scored 100.
A point behind in third were Mike
MacKay, Jim Mulka and Bob Cushman
who took a playoff from Rich Rompala,
Roger Triftshauser and Russ Bilgore.
The final tournament of '09 saw
Triftshauser and Jerry Mader win a playoff

Will Power
Do I Need A Trust?
Sby Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills,
Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA


Set me start the
new year off
I- ith one of
the most common
questions I encoun-
ter in my practice.
That question goes
something like this,
I'm not a million-
aire and my estate is not taxable, so I
don't need a trust do I?"
Whether you would benefit from a
revocable living trust does not really have
any relation to whether your estate might
be subject to tax. A revocable living trust
helps you if you should become disabled,
for example. In the event of your disabil-
ity, or if you are simply unable to man-
age your investments or pay your bills
because of age or infirmity, the successor
trustee of your revocable living trust can
step in and do these things for you.
Revocable living trusts are also private
documents. In contrast to wills, which
are filed with the probate court after your
demise, and are available for anyone to
review, trusts are not filed with any public
court in the event of your disability or in
the event of your death.
Further, new Florida statutes enhance
the privacy of your revocable trust
when transferring assets into your trust.
Brokerage firms have, in the past,
requested a copy of your trust when


you transferred your brokerage account
into the trust. The new Florida statutes
provide that the brokerage firm may rely
upon a brief "certificate of trust" and a
"trustee's affidavit" to verify the trust and
trustee.
Many of you already know that trusts
help avoid the probate process for the
assets that have been transferred into
the trust. If you own real property in
more than one state, trusts help avoid
not only the domiciliary proceeding here
in Florida, but also avoid the necessity
for an ancillary proceeding in the states
that you own real property. If you own a
home in Indiana, commercial real estate
in Ohio, and your primary residence is
here in Florida, a revocable living trust
could help your family avoid a probate
process in three states.
The types of assets that you own also
speak to whether a trust may assist you
and your family. If most of what you own
is in an IRA account, for example, then
you have a beneficiary designation and a
trust may not be as useful.
The ages and relative condition of
your beneficiaries speaks to whether a
revocable living trust would benefit you or
your family. If you have minor children
or grandchildren, for example, it is easy
to create provisions inside of a trust that
take care of them until they become old
enough to handle their inheritance. If you

want to provide asset protection features
for your surviving spouse, children or
grandchildren, trusts are often easier than
wills.
If you are concerned about someone
challenging your will, then a trust could
benefit your family. Trusts are harder
to challenge than wills are because you
operate under the trust during your life,
as opposed to a will that doesn't have
legal significance until your death. Since
you have been operating under the provi-
sions of your trust for your lifetime, the
theory goes that you had a greater under-
standing of the trust contents and that it
was likely consistent with your intent.
So all of the above reasons speak to
the benefits of a revocable living trust
without consideration to whether you are
a millionaire or have a taxable estate.

Human Trafficking

Awareness Event


S students in the honors program
at Florida Gulf Coast University,
together with The Florida
Coalition Against Human Trafficking,
Global Child Rescue and Klass Kids
Foundation, invite the public to a free
training program about domestic traf-
ficking awareness. The course will be
held from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday,
January 12 in Academic Building 5,
Room 112 on campus.
Keynote speaker is Mark Klaas,
president of Klaas Kids Foundation.
The training will be led by Brad Dennis,
Search and Rescue director at Klaas Kids
Foundation.
Domestic minor sex trafficking is
the commercial sexual exploitation of
American citizens or lawful permanent
resident children through prostitution or
pornography or sexual performance for
monetary or other compensation (shelter,
food or drugs).
The Trafficking Victims Protection
Act (TVPA) 2000, including subsequent
reauthorizations, has defined all minors


involved in commercial sex acts as human
trafficking, including minors who are U.S.
citizens or lawful permanent residents.
However, many domestic minor sex traf-
ficking victims, instead of receiving the
services they need, are detained in the
criminal justice system under charges of
prostitution.
The Florida Coalition Against Human
Trafficking, Shared Hope International,
Global Child Rescue, Klaas Kids and
Kristi's House are the only agencies in
the state of Florida that provide services
to domestic trafficking victims.
Parents, guardians, law enforcement,
prosecutors, judges, teachers, school
administrators, government officials, DCF
Child Protective investigators, victim and
child advocates, medical and counseling
professionals are encouraged to attend
this event.
For more information about domes-
tic sex trafficking, contact The Florida
Coalition Against Human Trafficking at
(239) 390-3350, or (239) 947-2452.#

The event reached 150 children and
adults living in Harlem Heights. The
unique partnership of many organizations
created a special event for families. Said
one mother, "It's nice to be able to spend
some family time with the people you
love the most. Thank you to the volun-
teers and the people that took the time
to make all the cookies, etc. Everything
was beautiful."
The Heights Foundation is a grass-
roots, hands on organization that works
to break the cycle of poverty. Its pur-
pose is solely charitable and educational.
Approximately 1,200 children live within
the boundaries of Harlem Heights. Over
one-third live below the federal poverty
level, a rate that is 100 percent greater
than the Lee County average.0

Shell Point Begins

Construction Of

Rehab Center
S hell Point Retirement Community held
a groundbreaking ceremony for the
new Rehabilitation Center that will be
part of the Larsen Pavilion, Shell Point's
skilled nursing facility. On December 22,
members of the management team and
Wright Construction gathered to commemo-
rate the beginning of the $5 million project.
The new free-standing facility will be on
The Island at Shell Point and will feature
7,465 square feet of space dedicated to pro-
viding the most advanced therapy, restorative
programs, and equipment available for assist-
ing residents in building strength, regaining
agility, and recovering movement and the
highest function possible following an injury, From left: Timothy Stephenson, executive
illness, or surgery. The original rehabilitation ing; Tim Lochridge, vice president of finan
center is 1,375 square feet. The new facility services; Peter Dys, president; Fred Edmar
will offer a significantly expanded program of vices; Bob Southern, director of project de
equipment and services, project manager at Wright Construction
The facility will have state-of-the-art equip-
ment for assessing and improving balance to provide stability and reduce falls. With
this equipment the individual's progress can be recorded and monitored to track
improvement. The larger gym will allow more people to utilize the services, and indi-
vidual treatment rooms will provide privacy. The Occupational Therapy Transition
Suite will allow for better preparation in a real-world environment as patients prepare
to return home or to their normal routines. An aqua therapy pool will enhance thera-
py opportunities while decreasing impact with water buoyancy. In addition there will be
a private rooftop patio on the second floor that will provide residents of the memory
care unit access to a protected and secure garden environment.
"We have been conservative and deliberate in our planning to make sure the funds
were already available before the construction of the project began," said Peter Dys,
president of the retirement community. "Our residents have been involved from the
very beginning and offered their generous support in our recent capital campaign for
the new facility."

Last year Shell Point completed a $24 million renovation to expand and enhance
the skilled nursing facility, known as the Larsen Pavilion. Originally built in 1971,
the Larsen Pavilion is licensed for 219 beds, including a nine-bed hospice unit which
serves both residents of Shell Point and the outside community. The facility is fully
staffed with two full-time on-site physicians, a nurse practitioner and a trained nursing
staff. It accepts Medicare patients who need short term rehabilitation as well as skilled
nursing services for long term care.
"This has been a banner year for health care at Shell Point," said Steve Minniear,
vice president of health care services. "In addition to completing the renovation, our
facility was also accredited by the CARF-CCAC, with certifications in Person-Centered
Long-Term Care for Specialty Programs in Dementia and Stroke care, making Shell
Point the only facility in the nation that holds all three."
According to Bob Southern, director of project development, site work for the new
Rehabilitation Center will begin immediately and is anticipated to take approximately

Redecorating?
Here's A Word
To The Wise
by Bridget
Vandenburgh
Decorating a
SB|room is like
any other
.- complex project.
It's best to start
with a plan and
take it one step at
a time. The tighter
your budget, the
more important it
is to stick to your plan, A professional
interior decorator can help you allocate
your decorating dollars wisely; spending
more where it counts and economizing
where it doesn't!
First things first. Before you make your
plan, decide what items you will keep and
what will be replaced or refurbished. Take
a careful look at your walls and floors.
Then discuss your priorities with your
decorator. If the walls look dingy and the
carpet is worn, putting a beautiful new
sofa in the room will only make it look
shabbier.
Next, discuss your color preferences.
Confused about selecting your color
scheme? Take a look around your home.
Many times, decorators have designed
whole rooms around a client's favorite
china pattern or floral arrangement, or
even an area rug. Finding the right color


scheme is vitally important to your over-
all project. And with today's open floor
plans, color planning is critical to not
just one room but all the rooms in your
home.
Once you've locked in your color
scheme, it's time to discuss your overall
floor plan. Consider the scale and place-
ment of furniture and the balance of color
and pattern in your room. Remember
that patterned fabric should be repeated
and an accent color should be carefully
placed around the room. Accent colors
are vital to creating visual movement in
any room decor.
When your basic decorating plan has
been established, it's now time to con-
sider window treatments. They can truly
be the focal point of any room and with
just the right design, the end result prom-
ises to be absolutely spectacular.
Next, consider the proper lighting for
the mood you've created in your new
room and let's not forget those very
important accessories. Accessories can be
likened to a wonderfully delicious dessert
after a fabulous meal. They add spark
and personality and are an excellent way
for you to express your lifestyle.
Fulfilling all your decorating dreams
and desires at one time might not be pos-
sible, But in the meantime you can live
comfortably and happily in a beautiful
room if you plan wisely. A professional
decorator can be invaluable when it
comes to helping you make your fondest
decorating dreams reality.

rior decorator on Sanibel. She can be

Mom And Me
I I ia


by Lizzie and Pryce
izzie and Pryce answer your ques-
tions and give advice about aging
concerns from a two-generational
perspective. A mother and daughter
team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health
educator, and Pryce is a licensed psy-
chotherapist in private practice who
specializes in the care of elders and
people with chronic illnesses.
Dear Mom & Me,
We retired from the cold north to the
warmth of the south. There are thou-
sands of people just like us living in this
area.
It is very disturbing to read in the
newspaper complaints from the younger
people about our driving and what a
menace we are on the roads. I am sorry
that they feel this way, but we who are
driving have passed the required licensing
procedure.
What is disturbing to us is why we
should have to pay school taxes for your
children when our children are long gone
and we don't benefit from the schools.


Have you ever thought that maybe
you have jobs because of our needs?
What do you think Lizzie and Pryce?
Seymour
Dear Seymour,
Young people have a very valid com-
plaint about some older citizens' driving.
I am amazed at how some seniors were
able to pass the licensing procedure.
Older people hate to give up their
wheels and independence. Stricter tests, I
personally think, should be enforced.
However; taxes for schools is a dif-
ferent matter. Our new longevity is
directly related to more educated people.
Dentists, doctors, engineers, pharmacists
and therapists have all made their contri-
bution and they all got their start in grade
school.
Each generation has their own physi-
cal and emotional needs. Try if you can
to show an example of a person aging
with dignity and grace.
Lizzie
Dear Seymour,
Who cares what the younger gen-
eration is saying about your driving.
Everyone has something or someone to
complain about. Let the comments go in
one car door and out the other.
I absolutely do not agree with age-
based driving tests. I think it is discrimina-
tory. Also, before there is a wholesale
retraction of older individuals' driving
privilege, there needs to be more thought
into how dependent individuals will
become, not being able to go to the
grocery store, the drug store or for their
appointments.
Pryce
Lizzie and Pryce's email address is

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
by Constance
S: Clancy
Q: It is under-
stood and accepted
that children can
"bully" other chil-
dren. Can adults
abuse their power
and bully other
adults in the work
place? What are
some of the charac-
teristics? Is there a definition?
A: Childhood bullying can turn into
adult bullying and too often it does, espe-
cially if the offender never learned the
lesson in childhood and got away with it.
The work setting is a prime example of
where adult bullying can take place, and it
can make someone's life miserable to the
point of quitting.
Underneath the bully is someone who
is insecure and easily intimidated so they
will attempt to ride those who are getting
positive attention and who are well liked
so they can try and gain the attention
they so desperately crave. Once they
succeed, they will target the next person
who comes along who intimidates them
and thus, there is not an end until swift
action is taken.
Bullies need to realize (through a supe-
rior at work) that they need to put more
positive energy into themselves rather
than destroying themselves. At the core


level, they really don't like who they are.
If you are victimized by a bully, assert
yourself and let this person know that this
is unacceptable behavior and you refuse
to tolerate it. If it does not stop, report
them to the person in charge. No one
should have to be talked to in a conde-
scending way.
Dr Clancy is a licensed mental
health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public
speaker You may email Dr Connie at
Connie@drconstance. us.

Remembering
Names Workshop
he number one memory com-
plaint among adults is the inability
to remember names. For some
people this is a lifelong problem, while
for others it begins when they enter
late middle age. Fortunately, there are
memory techniques to help mitigate
this problem. A 90-minute class on
Remembering Names and Faces will be
offered at the Community House on
Tuesday, January 12, from 10:30 a.m.
to noon. The class is part of a series
of brain fitness workshops offered by
LEAF Ltd., a private foundation devoted
to educating the public about how to
remain mentally sharp as we age.
Cost of the workshop is $15; regis-
tration is at the door. The Community
House is at 2173 Periwinkle Way. For
more information, call Penny at 482-
0356.0

Shore Fishing:

Don't Harm The Fish
by Capt. Matt Mitchell









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 unhook 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.
