Sanibel Historical Museum And Village
Docent Profile: Carol Kaplan
by Ray Buck
D ocent Carol Kaplan,
who has a Ph.D.
in French language
and literature, isn't called ....
upon to speak French
often on her Sanibel
Historical Museum and
Village rounds, but it i
could happen any day.
Describing her favorite
room in the Rutland
House, the dining room,
in French could be a chal -
lenge.
"I adore telling the story
of Annie Meade and Frank
Bailey." (Frank's sons, Sam
and Francis, are still around
the family store that began e
on the island, along with a
packing house and wharf.
"The china from Mary
Bailey and of Ruth Rutland Carol Kaplan
inspires me to imagine their
private lives so long ago." Kaplan said.
The Rutland House, home for so long for the assistant lighthouse keeper and his
family (he was also a fishing guide and farmer) is the introduction to the seven struc-
tures in the Historical Museum and Village. Built in 1913 as the island began to move
from isolation to small community, the Rutland House is a typical "cracker" house with
walls of lasting pine. The house, as simple as it is, also shows a sense of artistry and
taste in its interior walls. The house shows in many ways how the Rutlands and ear-
lier occupants, the common folk, bested the elements to find their paths in life on an
uncommon island.
Kaplan is a professor emerita of California University of Pennsylvania and a special-
ist in the 20th century French novel. She is married to Dr. Peter Kaplan; they have

two married children and two grandchildren, all of whom share their love for Sanibel.
Most of her work has been in French, as well as literary criticism. She began writing
poetry, in English, on Sanibel and has had some published in Don Brown's column in
the Island Sun.
Back in Pittsburgh she volunteers her teaching and French skills. On Sanibel she
loves BIG ARTS, especially for regional shows in art, and just about everything else on
the island, especially the people.M


From The Historical Museum And Village
Local Poet To
Read At Museum
anibel poet Raymond Buck will
have a repeat performance read-
ing his verse at the 1898 Village
Schoolhouse at the Sanibel Historical
Museum and Village at 2 p.m. on
Friday, January 22.
Buck, known as the village poet for his
poems celebrating the museum's seven-
building complex of island history, will
read many of those poems, as well other
Sanibel-related poems from his recently
published book, South Of Providence.
He has been a docent at the village for a
number of years. His reading last spring
at the schoolhouse was standing room
only.
There is no admission charge to the
village for this occasion. The public is
invited.
The reading will be followed by an
iced tea and cookies social at the village's
historic Miss Charlotta's Tearoom, and a
book signing.
Buck is known to many for his read-
ings at the Sanibel Island Writers Reads
at BIG ARTS and the Open Mics at The


Bean. Before returning to the island in
October Buck read before audiences in
Connecticut at the public libraries in Essex
and Old Saybrook.
Last spring he gave a special reading
at a monthly meeting of the Fort Myers
chapter of the Sons of the American
Revolution. Also across the bay, this
October he was the finalist judge for the
Fort Myers school system's poetry com-
petition for children from grade school to
high school who would read their work at
Veterans Day ceremonies at Barbara B.
Mann Auditorium.4

Captivans Take A Storm-Ready
Trip To National Weather Center
by Phyllis Gibson
What will it take to keep Captiva's Storm Ready designation this year? While
the island community was the first barrier island in Florida to achieve this des-
ignation, it will need to continue its planning and vigilance to maintain it.
Next year Captiva will need to reapply for the Storm Ready status. This year
Captivans need to do two things: visit the NOAA facility of the National Weather
Service in Ruskin, Florida and conduct a SkyWarn training on the island. While any-
one is welcome to visit the facility in Ruskin, Phyllis Gibson and Doris Holzheimer
from the Captiva Hurricane Preparation and Response Committee, traveled there to
officially meet this requirement. They were hosted by Todd Barron and Rick Davis who
demonstrated the technology and sophisticated forecasting systems of the National
Weather Service at the site. They were particularly helpful in explaining the progress
of the current cold weather in Florida.
Gibson and Holzheimer toured the facility and reviewed current plans for Captiva
with the forecasters. The meteorologists were pleased with the work and the We site
and made a few suggestions for enhancepments. Gibson and Holzheimer more fully
understand the marine forecasting capabilities of the center and hope to incorporate
these capabilities in both educational programing and on www.mycaptiva.info.
S That Web site is a one-stop center for weather information for Captivans and all
interested in weather on the islands throughout the year.
The forecasters were pleased to see the Web site's access and links to the NOAA
weather forecast which is continually updated with current information and more fre-
quently updated when there is severe weather or threat of a hurricane.
All Captivans can participate in the SkyWarn training on February 8 at 'Tween
Waters Inn and help us fulfill this requirement. The basic training is from 10 to 11
a.m. and the advanced training from 11 a.m. to noon. It will be conducted by Daniel
Noah from the Ruskin National Weather Service. All are welcome, whether attending
for the first time or refreshing their skills. We ask that you register at the Captiva Fire
Department 472-9494 for the training.
This is fun, informative training and we will offer a weather radio to one of the
participants via a raffle. You will come away from the training better able to under-
stand what you see in the sky and how to report weather incidents. Better informed
Captivans will be safer and make better weather decisions.
If you are interested in learning more about the committee and/or would like to
volunteer to help reapply for Storm Ready status for Captiva, contact Holzheimer at
472-1978 or Gibson at 472-6179.4

Dancing With The
Islands' Stars Is
Next Weekend


Liddy Johnson, with her dance instruc-
tor Brad MacDonald, prepares for the big
fundraiser ahead
iddy Johnson, a well-known vol-
unteer around the islands, is the
last in the series to spotlight as
one of the six star dancers who will be
competing for the coveted ball trophy
for Dancing With The Islands' Stars on
January 23 at The Community House.
Johnson never missed a beat when
asked to take dance lessons, canvas her
friends for donations, and show her fox-
trot to hundreds of people. Her enthu-


siasm and joy spills over to the more
than 75 volunteers adding the final
touches on a trend-setting fundraiser.
Johnson said, "What an exciting event
that has energized so many people to
gather together to watch us dance and
get on the bandwagon in support of
The Community House. It's time for
the house to have a new face and new
space as it is the home for all island-
ers and will continue to be well into the
future."
She further adds her compliments to
the Fred Astaire Dance Studios, who has
graciously given six stars the time, les-
sons and expertise needed to learn these
ballroom dances. All the dancers join
Johnson in expressing appreciation for
making the dance lessons fun and urge
the community to support this dance
studio.
It is not too late to get tickets to the
dress rehearsal on Friday, January 22.
The cost is just $25 and you will also get


to vote for the People's Choice dancer.
Stop by The Community House to get
your ticket or place your vote (dona-

Mimms: Gone
But Not Forgotten
by Anne Mitchell
Week after the Sanibel City
Council voted 4-1 not to pass an
ordinance that would have made
it harder for anyone to build the largest
home in a neighborhood, some mem-
bers of the planning commission are still
smarting.
The commission spent 19 months
coming up with a formula to prevent
homes new or expanded from
destroying the rhythm and harmony of
Sanibel's residential communities. But the
council with Mayor Mick Denham dis-
senting vetoed the proposed changes.
Commissioner Paul Reynolds said at
Tuesday's meeting that with the council's
rejection the burden for making decisions
on home construction applications is back
on the planning staff.


Reynolds said anyone who thinks the
existing section 86-43 of the ordinance
is working just fine "should make their
first call to David Mimms... meanwhile,
we await the next Mimms family to have
the rug pulled out from under them. It is
a shame."
Mimms has become the embodiment
of the shortcomings of 86-43, having
spent a lot of time and money trying to
build his dream home in Chateaux-Sur-
Mer. Mimms' application caused much
controversy and led to neighbors' protests
and a series of heated public hearings.
Mimms eventually dropped his plans
and put his gulf-front land on the mar-
ket when city officials, lacking any legal
guidelines, were stumped for solutions for
dealing with the issue.
As for the 86-43 revision, it wasn't
until early January when the council held
a public hearing on the commission's
recommendations that they saw details of
the square footage of the largest home
in each neighborhood numbers that
seemed to influence council members'
denial.
Vice Chairman Phillip Marks doesn't
want a repeat of 86-43 when the com-
mission soon begins a new task: revamp-
ing the rules for resort zone redevelop-
ment and he wanted council members to
attend the hearings or read the minutes
of the meetings.
"I have some reservations about put-
ting in a year or more of work to have it
basically emasculated at the city council
level," Marks said.
Commissioner Holly Smith said before
embarking on resort redevelopment, she
wants "a complete list of all the proper-
ties that will be affected" by any new
laws.


New Planning
Commissioners
Are Seated
by Anne Mitchell
he Sanibel Planning Commission's
first meeting of 2010 included the
seating of two new planning com-
missioners and the election of a chair-
man and vice chairman.
Christopher Heidrick and Chuck
Ketteman were welcomed Tuesday to the
seven-member board and the commission
expressed thanks to Patty Sprankle, who
resigned, and to Les Forney, who was
not reappointed.
It was status quo for the chairman and
vice chairman, with Mike Valiquette and
Phillip Marks being returned for the
third time to those positions.
Valiquette and Heidrick will serve
three-year terms and Ketteman will serve
the unexpired portion of Sprankle's term,
which is one year.C

At Centre Place
Submitted by Community
Housing & Resources, Inc.
When Sanibel's shining example
of limited-equity homeowner-
ship celebrates its opening next
month at Centre Place, it will be an
achievement for the entire community,
thanks to many volunteers and work-
ers on behalf of Community Housing &
Resources (CHR) and its subsidiary, the
Coast & Islands Community Land Trust.
"Our board members didn't really
have any idea of the work involved and
the obstacles we would run into when we
set out on this project to offer affordable
homeownership to qualified island work-
ers," said Land Trust President Dr. Phillip
Marks. "It's never been done before, and
we set the bar high to make the homes
not only as affordable as possible but as
environmentally responsible, community-
friendly, attractive, and in keeping with
Sanibel's vision. We are grateful to the
many people who made this remarkable
project possible."
Board members Emilie Alfino, Mike
Cuscaden, JoAnne Fedele, Richard
Johnson, Mark Norman, Tom Rothman,
Dennis Simon and Dorothy Simpson
took on the complicated tasks of writ-
ing, re-writing, and then writing again


the lease covering the land on which the
new homes sit (referred to as a "ground
lease"); developing a homeowners asso-
ciation and writing bylaws and codes,
covenants and restrictions.
"The CHR staff, too, have been work-
ing double-time processing paperwork,
talking one-on-one with prospective
buyers, researching requirements and
crunching endless numbers," Marks said.
The staff includes Executive Director
Scott Marcelais, Administrative Manager
Patti Bohm, and Administrative Assistant
Cyndie Hoggatt. Maintenance staff-
ers Dennis Minten and Robert "Doc"
Lubinski have also taken on extra duties
as construction of the new homes and
rehabilitation of Beach Road and Sanibel
Highlands continues.
Among the others deserving thanks,
Marks stressed, is the City of Sanibel, the
city council and the planning commis-
sion. The projects required city approvals
and hearings and code changes covering
everything from allowable density to plat-
ting, vegetation, and tax assessments.
The projects had the city's full support
and cooperation from the start, making
the process much easier, Marks said.
Three local attorneys volunteered
their time and expertise to meet with the
potential homeowners and discuss the
details of the ground lease with prospec-
tive purchasers. Tim Murty of Murty &
Monk, Jason Maughan, and David Platt
of Henderson & Franklin will be meeting
free of charge with each of the 14 home
buyers and answering their questions
prior to closing.
"These lawyers are not the only mem-


bers of the community to put themselves
out to assist us," Marks continued. "We
have been very fortunate to have the
patience and understanding of both our
residential and commercial neighbors at
the Centre Place project." Marks said.
"Construction is messy and noisy by
nature, and the residents and businesses
surrounding the new homes could not
have been more gracious."
The homes at Centre Place sit behind
Billy's Rentals bike shop, owned by Billy
Kirkland, who not only endured the noise
and inconvenience but even granted
ingress and egress to the project through
his property
"I feel honored to be able to help the
below market rate housing program,"
Kirkland said. "They're providing a great
benefit for this island with projects like
this that give workers and employees a
place to live on the island. Whatever I can
do is a small part compared to what CHR
is doing."
Two local banks, Bank of the Islands
and Sanibel Captiva Community Bank,
are working with CHR and its land trust
subsidiary to provide mortgages for home
buyers, while supportive Sanibel residents
are coming forward with private mort-

gage money to complete the rest of the
sales.
"We're grateful, too, to our island
newspapers for publishing articles and
notices about this exciting new venture so
we could keep the community informed
and educate people who might be inter-
ested in taking advantage of this new
opportunity," Marks said.
Centre Place is the first Florida Green
and LEED-certified project on Sanibel
(Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design, a federal designation). In addition,
the project was built using subcontractors
and suppliers that have a long history of
working on Sanibel, something CHR is
proud to have been able to do, Marks
added. Kennedy Construction is manag-
ing the project, a family-owned company
that's been on Sanibel for 33 years.
"It speaks volumes about this special
community that even in a recession,
islanders come together to get something
done that will help people," Marks said.
A public dedication and open house is
planned for early February, in combina-
tion with a celebration of CHR's 30th
anniversary. Watch for information in
future issues or call CHR at 472-1189

Sea School

Scavenger

Hunt Begins


by Evelyn Neill
t is time for Sanibel Sea School's
annual ocean celebration, which
means it's time for scavenger hunts.
Now in its third year, the Sea School's
winter fundraising event begins with the
gift of true treasure. And this year, as
with last year, Lily & Co. is the Master
Sponsor of six Sea Fandango Scavenger
Hunts. Each week a clue will be pub-
lished in the paper and posted online.
The first person to find the location of
the Sea Fandango token will be reward-
ed with a true treasure from Lily & Co.
This is Sanibel Sea School's launch of
a season that will culminate on February
20 with the Sea Fandango event at
The Community House. Join the fun of
searching, finding, getting and giving!
Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3 dedicated
to marine conservation through experi-
ential education. All proceeds from Sea
Fandango will go to scholarships and
operating expenses. Sanibel Sea School
has never turned down a student for
lack of funds thanks to the generosity of
donors.
You can call me ray
The first Sea Fandango scavenger
hunt winner will receive a sterling silver
18" Larimar sea ray pendant as blue as
the sea and as beautiful as its creatures.
This Lily & Co. treasure is valued at
$220.
It begins with Clue 1
The Sea Fandango begins like so
With playful games that encourage
you to go
Explore our island's nooks and cran-
nies.
You might need to know history or ask
some grannies.
You might need to know science or
navigation
You might get wet, hot or cold have
patience!
Let's start nice and easy on a cold
winter's day
To find the token that will win the ray.
Like a nursery, it seems, without any
babies
Approaching the island, four empty
cradles.
Happy hunting! Happy Sea Fandango!
Call us when you have the token in your
possession. Or call us to purchase tickets
to Sea Fandango at 472-8585.4

RICHARD HAMILTON
Richard Hamilton died January 10
at midnight, at home with his chil-
dren Jessica, Caitlyn and Spencer,
wife Debra, brothers Mike and Pete,
sister Debra, sister-in-law Linda, and
Brando by his side.
Those that had the pleasure of know-
ing Rick knew a man who was fiercely
proud of his family; he could fix anything,
talk about everything and made friends
everywhere he went. He exemplified
patience, compassion and unconditional
love.
Rick and Deb came to the islands 26
years ago after buying Cafe Captiva,
which they owned and operated for four


Preceding him in death were his
parents, Albert and Mildred (Greenley)
Halweg; his wife of 42 years, Jeanne
(who fought cancer for 15 years); his
brother, Raymond and his grandchild,
Rachel. He is survived by his sons: John
(Jane) Halweg of New Bern, North
Carolina; Gerald (Debbie) Halweg, Jr. and
their children, Sarah and Gerald III (Trey)
of Naperville, Illinois; and, James Halweg
of Cornelius, North Carolina. He is also
survived by his beloved partner of the
last eight years, Elizabeth (Beth) Miller of
Sanibel.
Gerry was born on October 25 1930
in Waukegan, Illinois, the youngest of
three brothers. The family later moved
to Joliet, Illinois. He graduated from
Joliet High School in 1949 and attended
Joliet Junior College for two years. He
completed his education at the University
of Illinois in 1953 where he received a
bachelor's degree in business manage-
ment. He married Jeanne Viola Fant of
Rockdale, Illinois in 1953 and spent the
next two years in the U.S. Army before
joining the civilian workforce.
He returned to Joliet, where he
was employed by Blockson Chemical
Company. The corporation was later
acquired by Olin Corporation where
Gerry remained until his retirement in
1992. While working for Olin he rose
in the executive ranks to national sales
manager as well as to CEO of an Olin
joint venture. Advancement meant mov-
ing, and over the years the family lived

years. He also graced the islands with
his artistic talent as a graphic designer
and sign maker from the 1980s on,
Periwinkle Way became decorated with
countless examples of his creative ability.
Rick spent the last 15 years as a certified
financial planner and the fix-it man for his
wife's property management business.
His life was truly awesome and he will
be greatly missed.
In lieu of flowers, the family would
appreciate expressions of sympathy
through donations to the Dana-Farber
Cancer Institute (https://www.dana-
farber.org/how/gifts/).
A memorial service will be held at
Saint Michael and All Angels Episcopal
Church, 2304 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel,
on Saturday, January 16 at 10 a.m.0

avid fisherman, hunter, marksman, and

he developed an interest in biking, riding
20 to 30 miles daily.
He took great pride in his collection of
bikes; a carbon composite, a Cannondale
and a recumbent. He also spent time
and energy volunteering at the Red Start
Fishery Project and the "Ding" Darling
National Wildlife Refuge. Gerry was an
active member of the Sanibel-Captiva
Lions Club and recently completed his
term as secretary. He was a member
of the Sanibel Congregational United
Church of Christ. Gerry and Beth trav-
eled throughout the world in their eight
years together; from Moscow to Beijing
to Scotland to Antarctica. Their next trip
was in the planning stage.

Island Properties
Help Refuge
The "Ding" Darling Wildlife Refuge
needs help. Its budget, when
adjusted for inflation, falls well
below 2004 levels; staff has been cut by
a third; and needed repairs have been
delayed.
Island accommodations are stepping
up to the plate to provide that help.
The following island properties and
rental agencies have joined the "Ding"
Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the
Refuge's (DDWS) new Guest Contribution
Program (GCP), whereby guests have the
option of contributing $1 per night to
support the refuge:
Cottages to Castles of Sanibel &
Captiva
Island Vacations of Sanibel &
Captiva, Inc.
Jensen's on the Gulf
Kona Kai Motel & Cottages
Mitchell's Sand Castles and Forty/
Fifteen Resorts
Parrot Nest
Periwinkle Cottages of Sanibel
Sandy Bend Condo
Sanibel & Captiva Accommodations
Shalimar Resort
Tarpon Tale Inn
DDWS' GCP is a pilot program for
national wildlife refuge friends groups
across the country. It is modeled after
successful programs based in several
national parks. The program's 11 charter
accommodations partners have paved the
way for an island-wide effort.
"We are excited to be a ground-level
partner for such a wonderful project,"
said Fran Peters, Island Vacations of
Sanibel & Captiva, Inc. "The refuge is an
important part of Sanibel, and we're sure
our guests will feel positive about making
a contribution."
Accommodations participants, whose
home pages are linked directly to visitors
through the heavily visited DDWS (www.
dingdarlingsociety.org) and refuge Web
sites (www.fws.gov/dingdarling), have
already begun reaping benefits from the
unique partnership.
"The Parrot Nest can boast 100 per-
cent guest participation in this worthy
cause since we began this summer," said
Brenda Consentino, the inn's general
manager. "What I found most interest-
ing is the fact that when travelers who
are not familiar with 'Ding' Darling hear
about the contribution program, they are
motivated to check out the refuge for
themselves.
"Many come back with stories of
ospreys and eagles and, as one little girl
from Germany told me, 'we saw many
pink birds with faces like a duck together
in one tree, and when all together they
look like cotton candy!' My guess is that
she was enamored by the roseate spoon-
bills."
Federal budget cuts over the past five
years have meant diminished staff and
funding for "Ding" Darling, which brings
more than 700,000 visitors to the islands
each year. Programs such as this hope to
strengthen weakening refuges and their
wildlife habitat nationwide, according to
refuge administration.


"We are excited about this new way to
partner with local accommodations and
extend the good-neighbor relationship
we've enjoyed in the past with our ultra-
supportive business community," said
DDWS President Jim Scott. "The com-
munity support is heartening. Businesses
realize the great value of our refuge to
their livelihood and are helping us in our
mission to raise awareness of the refuge
and preserve and protect its wildlife habi-
tat.


"The refuge Web site alone receives
more than 16,000 hits each month, so
our partners do receive valuable added
exposure through participating in the
program," said Wesley Fay, GCP coor-
dinator. "In addition, they'll be listed
on signage within the refuge Education
Center, which welcomes 250,000 visitors
throughout the year."

Captive Cruises will be offering a
special educational program enti-
tled Science at Sea on Thursday,
January 28 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
This two-hour cruise will be aboard
Captiva Cruise's 24-passenger sailing
catamaran and will be a hands-on scien-
tific inquiry suitable and fun for all ages.
If you have ever dreamed or wondered
what it would be like to be a marine biol-
ogist, this trip will answer those questions.
Scientific equipment will be used to mea-
sure the salinity, temperature, dissolved
oxygen and clarity of the water. Crab
traps and a plankton net will be hauled in
for observation and there will be discus-
sion about some of the inhabitants of the
waters surrounding Sanibel and Captiva.
This program is an excellent way to
learn about the impacts to water quality
and how marine biologists measure the
health of the back bay estuary ecosys-
tem. The data and observations that are
recorded on this trip will be added to
the cumulative research of the Sanibel-
Captiva Conservation Foundation's
(SCCF) Marine Laboratory. A portion of
the proceeds will help The Marine Lab in
its ongoing research. Richard Finkel, envi-
ronmental educator with Captiva Cruises,
will be conducting this program. Space
is limited so reservations are required.
Reservations may be made by calling
472-5300.0

Foundation will present a program about
the life cycle of these and other native
butterflies including the plants they need

snazzy stage style, producing the jump,
blues, and boogie sounds of "swing that is
king and jive that's alive."
The band, some of whose amazing
musicians have played with the group for
decades, uses original vintage orchestra-
tions, creating an authentic brand of hot
Cotton Club-style music and hijinks.
Tickets are $46 loge, $41 floor, and
student $15.
The concert is sponsored by John M.

Weather Seminar
Sanibel-Captiva Sail & Power
Squadron is offering a public semi-
nar on weather from 10 a.m. to
12 p.m. on January 30 at the Sanibel
Public Library. Rather than being caught
out in bad weather, take some preven-
tive steps. TV channel 25 provides
the more current conditions fron the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) or check on the
Internet at www.intellicast.com.
Did you know that if the dew point
and temperature are within a few degrees
of each other, you are very apt to have
fog?


If you have a VHF radio, newer mod-
els have a NOAA weather channel. If
conditions look questionable, tune it in.
Channel 16 will also warn of bad condi-
tions.
On the water, forecasting is a learned
art. Learn what various cloud formations
and wind direction changes can mean.
The instructor for the course is Dan
Himebaugh. Himebaugh is a chemist and
an experienced engineer who, as a boater
and pilot, has had significant interest and
experience with understanding weather.
The safety conscious vessel opera-
tors should not miss the opportunity.
Call Roger Heider at 395-0959 or Dick
Squitieri at 395-9030 to reserve a place
or to obain additional information.M

Shell Wreaths Available At Museum


Docent and volunteer, Peggy Henward, admires the display of shell wreaths at the
Sanibel Historical Museum and Village
]r those who are just now returning to the islands, there are still a few shell
wreaths available in the Rutland House at the Sanibel Historical Museum and
Village.
These lovely, heirloom quality wreaths are created year-round by Joan Emilius
and Peggy Henward, who spend about a week fabricating each wreath.
According to Henward, "The weaths are not just for the holidays. They are
a welcoming symbol for a front door, a lanai or a kitchen and suggest a casual,
island atmosphere."
For more information, call 472-4648 during business hours
The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village wishes to thank Bank of the Islands,
the Sanibel Public Library and Big Arts for helping the Village sell 40 of its unique,
one-of-a-kind, handcrafted shell wreaths during the holidays.O

To Speak


A red clay study model of the 25-foot breaching whale by sculptor Skip Wallen
culptor Skip Wallen will speak at the general meeting of the Sanibel-Captiva
Art League at The Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way, on January 21
at 1:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Wallen's huge sculpture projects are a dizzying change from the subject of the
league's last presentation about miniature paintings.
Wallen is perhaps best known on the island for a WGCU Public Television docu-
mentary chronicling his creation of commemorative 10-foot cast bronze monument
statues of American and Russian WWII pilots currently standing in Fairbanks, Alaska.

The dedication was attended by notables from both nations, including the U.S. sec-
retary of defense. Wallen worked on the red clay maquette, or clay study model,
used later to create the mold from which the bronze was cast, on Sanibel. Hurricane
Charley briefly interrupted his work. Local resident Luc Century was reportedly the
model for the American airman.
Wallen's current project is a life-size 25-foot statue of a breaching humpback whale,
complete as a red clay maquette at this time. The bronze Leviathan will eventually be
in an infinity pool with fountain waterworks. It will celebrate Alaska's 50th anniversary
as a state, and it will be located in Juneau at its waterfront.
Wallen is a part time resident of Sanibel. He has monumental sculptures in diverse
places including Switzerland, the Netherlands, Washington DC at The World Bank,
and the University of Houston.0

Visiting Curator Will
Share Tree Snail Expertise


Jeffrey C. Nekola has been
awarded the 2009 RT Abbott
Visiting Curatorship at the Bailey-
Matthews Shell Museon on Sanibel.
For the last several weeks, Dr.
Nekola has conducted land snail field
surveys across South Florida to obtain
records for as many species as possible.
Native habitats from Sanibel South to
the Florida Keys have been studied.
This material will be processed, with a
complete reference set of all encoun-
tered species, being accessioned into
the Shell Museum collection.
Since no systematic inventory of
this fauna has been accomplished in
over three quarters of a century, this
collection will provide vital insights into
the impact of urbanization and climate
change. It is hoped that this research
will increase public interest and knowl-
edge of this important group of species,
which as a result might help spur their
study by local residents as well as visi-
tors.
Dr. Nekola will share his land snail
expertise with the community over the
next several weeks and teach field col-
lection techniques. The following pro-
grams are open to the public.
Land Snail Biodiversity
This overviews the 10 most impor-
tant ecological patterns of land snail
diversity, and provides an overview of
how this group of animals is best pro-
tected.

An introduction to North American pupillids and biodiversity in the family
Pupillidae with lots of interesting pictures and ecological stories.

Field Trip
Location: Fort Myers Beach area
A once in a lifetime opportunity to learn about land snail identification and the art
or science of collection. Land snails may be found almost anywhere, occasionally in
dry places, but damp woodland is perhaps their favorite habitat. They may be found
crawling over vegetation or tree trunks. Even an amateur has a chance to discover
something new and original. Join an expert in the field. Learn proper collection proto-
cols so you can continue advancing the state of the local fauna.
Date: January 31, 9 a.m. to noon (meet at museum). Lunch is noon to 1 p.m. at
your own expense.
Cost: free
Dr. Nekola received his B.A. in biology from Coe College and his Ph.D. in ecol-
ogy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is a research associate
in the Biology Division of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in
Albuquerque, New Mexico, an adjunct associate professor for the University of New
Mexico, and research associate in the Section of Mollusks at the Carnegie Museum of
Natural History.

Port Lincoln Parrot in tree


The next Bailey-Matthews Lecture
Series presentation will take place
on Wednesday, January 20 at 2
p.m. Dr. Gary Schmelz, president of the
board of trustees for the Shell Museum,
will present Exploring The Flora And
Fauna Of Western Australia, with a spe-
cial look at wildflowers.
The state of Western Australia occu-
pies the entire Western third of the
Australian continent. It is Australia's larg-
est state and is the second largest subna-
tional entity in the world, with 2.2 million
inhabitants, most of whom live in the
southwest corner of the state. Perth is the
capital of Western Australia and the peo-
ple are often referred to as sandgropers,
the common name of an insect found on
sand dunes around Perth.
The presentation will begin with a
35-minute Power Point travelogue of
the coast and interior regions of Western
Australia. Spectacular images of land ani-
mals, corals, and marine life will be high-
lighted. The program will culminate with
a vivid musical sound-collage featuring 80
species of wild flowers.
Dr. Schmelz has an undergradu-

Fish Die-Off
Due To Cold
On Tuesday, Sanibel City Manager
Judith Zimomra authorized the
public works department to
collect fish on the beach killed during
Monday night's record cold tempera-
tures. The priorities for collection are
public beaches, public beach accesses
and then beaches adjacent to private
properties.
No tractors are being used. All fish are
being collected by hand and transported
off the beach by city trucks.
"The volume of fish lost during this
event is unfortunate. However, we are
fortunate that we are not in turtle or bird
nesting season at this time," Zimomra
noted.#

Team Up
For Wildlife


In the Moment


Maltz's new book, Visions of Beauty -
Fort Myers, Sanibel & Beyond, contains
128 full color pages of natural beauty in
Lee County. In a recent interview Maltz
said, "For me, the natural beauty is what
separates Lee from a lot of other places."


Maltz explained what he tries to cap-
ture in his photos. "It's the essence of
my subject, whether it be architecture,
wildlife, nature, landscape, sort of like the
magic of the moment for that subject, to
bring out the best and tell a story in one
image."
He said every scenario has its chal-
lenges. Synchronization played a great
hand in the gorgeous photo that graces
the cover of his book.
"Early in the morning I went out look-
ing for images to capture. At sunrise
I wound up in Fort Myers Beach near
Lovers Key. On the left hand side on
Estero Bay the scene was happening.
"The sun was rising, birds feeding,
lots of spoonbills and others along with a
dramatic sunrise. I had to tredge across
the mud flats to get to the scene and
even had to abandon my boots when
they became stuck in the mud. I believe
I caught the essence of that moment,
which is reflected on the cover."
Maltz, will shoot several rolls of film
per subject. "I try to take as many images
as I can for that given moment in time.
I wait for the perfect moment. I see
my subjects as paintings in my mind's
eye. The process happens naturally
and instantaneously with little conscious
thought. I have an intuitive sense of
knowing what to do and when to do it.
This is my gift, my passion, my dream."
An interesting introduction to the
book is written by local author Charles
Sobczak. His words include, "This book
is an intimate portrait of Lee County,


In Light of the Journey
Florida at the turn of the 21st century. A
treasured keepsake of color and light that
will stay with us forever while Alan Maltz
packs up his easel and his camera and
quietly moves on.
In addition to the book signing, Victor
Mayeron of The Mucky Duck will lead
a live auction featuring $11,000 worth
of Maltz's museum-finished works with
custom framing included. All proceeds
from this portion of the auction will go
to CROW. Also up for bid will be one of


Maltz's three-panel fine art screens valued
at $12,000. Twenty percent from that
sale will benefit CROW. There will be
myriad silent auction items as well, includ-
ing vacation rentals, a golf weekend,
jewelry, Segway tours, charter sightsee-
ing tours and restaurant gift certificates.
Even more items will be awarded dur-
ing a raffle drawing. The Companies of
Royal Shell and Ellington's have created
a signature drink for this event, served in
a commemorative glass for $10, with all
proceeds going to CROW. Reservations
are requested by January 21. Call 333-
3575 or email Barb Harrington at barb.
harrington@rlrllc.com.
Maltz has been designated the Official
Fine Art Photographer for the State of
Florida by Visit Florida and the Official
Wildlife Photographer of Florida by the
Wildlife Foundation of Florida. Sixty of his
fine art images are on permanent exhibi-
tion at Southwest Florida International
Airport in Fort Myers. His book is avail-
able at most book stores on island as well
as other locations. His Web site is www.
AlanMaltz.com, and his gallery is located
at 1210 Duval Street in Key West.0

CROW Case

Of The Week:

Sea Turtles
by Brian Johnson
r If you think
it's cold walk-
ing around

swimming in the
S Gulf of Mexico.
The cold wave
that has frosted
Citrus trees across
Florida and chilled
residents has given
sea turtles a jolt.
As of press time, CROW had received
six sea turtles during a span of a few
days from January 6 toll. Most had
been found floating in the water offshore,
unable to paddle, dive or protect them-
selves.
A hawksbill that arrived on Monday
registered a temperature of 51 degrees.
"The sea turtles have been stunned by
the cold," said Dr. PJ Deitschel. "This is
not a common occurrence this far south."
The northern blast put the heaters
in the 900-gallon sea turtle tanks out
of commission at some point Saturday
night, forcing staff to haul two of their
turtles back inside the clinic, where they
still remained as of Tuesday. The heat-
ers are up and working again but staff
must monitor each turtle's condition and


A hawksbill turtle wrapped up for warmth

weather forecasts to determine when they
can go outside. "We're taking it one day
at a time," Dietschel said.
CROW received a Kemps Ridley on
November 8 of last year suffering from
toxicosis. The turtle had made a nice
recovery and was ready for release when
the cold front swept into Southwest
Florida.
On January 6 the Sanibel Police
brought in a 30-pound green sea turtle
discovered floating in the gulf. The fol-
lowing day Captain Steve Maddux from


Tarpon Bay Explorers rescued a seven-
pound Kemps Ridley. A steady stream of
phone calls regarding lethargic sea turtles
began to pour into the clinic.
Tarpon Bay Explorers pulled a
20-pound green from the water on
January 10 and the next day Sanibel
Captiva Conservation Foundation staff
and volunteers delivered a 30-pound
hawksbill from Woodring Point, a
60-pound green from a city dock, and
another 30 pound green from Tarpon
Bay.

"You need to warm them up slowly,"
said Dr. PJ. "There is not a lot of
research about how to warm up reptiles,
but we use the existing guidelines and
attempt to bring their temperature up five
degrees per day."
The turtles are stabilized and the out-
look is good for all of them. They are
currently housed in the Reptile Room and
the ICU and spend much of their day in a
shallow bathtub or a plastic tub.
Out of danger now, they should be
ready for release as Florida becomes
Florida again.

Audubon Society
Presents Wings
Over Water


E ver wonder why birds undertake
perilous migratory journeys over
countless miles of open water? The
Sanibel-Captiva Audubon program on
Thursday, January 21 at 7:30 p.m. enti-
tled Wings over Water: Migratory Land
Bird Flights over the Western Atlantic
and Gulf of Mexico will provide some
answers and insights.
It will be presented by ornithologist
Steven Reinert. This lecture will describe
and contrast the wondrous flocks of
migratory land birds as they wend their
way over the western hemisphere's larg-
est water bodies. The focus will be on the
flights of immature birds over the Atlantic


and how these wayward travelers survive
their first daunting journeys.
In 1996, Reinert visited the Block
Island Bird Banding Station where he
discovered shelf after shelf of three-ring
binders with data on migratory land birds
dating back to 1967. In all, there were
eighty thousand records. It took seven
years to compile all the information, and
he even wrote a computer program to
enable volunteers and, later, trained orni-
thologists, to enter the information into
a computerized data bank. It is this data
which serves as the basis of his lecture
Reinert has studied birds in
Massachusetts and Rhode Island for
over 30 years and has authored several
scientific papers, monographs, and book-
chapters on the region's avifauna. His
specialty areas are coastal and estuarine
bird ecology and land bird migration.
Having received both a BS degree in
zoology (1968) and a MS in wildlife biol-
ogy (1978) from the University of Rhode
Island, he has worked as an ornitholo-
gist for URI and the Lloyd Center for
Environmental Studies.
In addition, he has served on the
boards of the Rhode Island Audubon
Society and the Barrington Land
Conservation Trust. He is a master-band-
er, and has served as the volunteer data
manager for the Block Island Banding
Station since 1996.
This is the third of eight lectures to be
held in 2010 on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.
at the Sanibel Community House, 2173
Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. As always, all
are welcome to attend. Doors open at
6:30 p.m. and parking is available at
the Community House as well as across
Periwinkle Way in the Schoolhouse
Theater parking area. A $5 donation is
appreciated with proceeds being used to
promote conservation on Sanibel and in
Florida. For additional information, call
Elaine Jacobson at 395-1878 or log onto
www.sancapaudubon.org .


Nile Monitor Lizards





Nile monitor lizard
allowing documented sightings of a Nile monitor lizard on Sanibel, the city
of Sanibel implemented the Exotic Lizard Management Program in 2007 to
protect bird, gopher tortoise and sea turtle nests. In 2008 a seven-foot Nile
monitor lizard was found dead floating in a Sanibel lake. SCCF herpetologist, Chris
Lechowicz, performed a necropsy on the male lizard, but the cause of death was
not determined. There have been no other documented sightings of this invasive
lizard on island, but according to estimates, the population of this swimming, tree-
climbing, egg- and bird-eating lizard in Cape Coral could be 2,2000 individuals plus.
On Friday, January 22 at 10 a.m. Conny Spurfeld will present herself as the lead
in a German documentary (in English) about Nile monitor lizards which was filmed in
Cape Coral and the lizard's native Africa. Spurfeld is presently an intern at "Ding"
Darling Wildlife Refuge. She previously worked with the Cape Coral Nile monitor
eradication program.
The program will be at 10 a.m. on Friday, January 22 in the Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation auditorium. Cost is $5 with SCCF members and children
attending for free.#


Honeybells


ARE NOW,IN


Get Them While They Last!!
H oneybell oranges are exceptionally sweet
andjuicy citrus fruits which only reach peak
S ripeness during
the month of January. '
Also known as Minneola
S tangelos, Honeybell
oranges are not actually
oranges at all. They are a hybrid or cross
between the Darcy variety of tangerine
and either the Duncan or Bowen variety
of grapefruit. This hybridization process,
which some sources say can be traced
back to the ancient Orient, yields a tangelo
with the coloring and size of a grapefruit
and the sweetness and juiciness of a tangerine. Honeybell oranges
are prized for their sweetness and relative scarcity, along with their
abundant supply of juice.

Record Cold Is
Bad For Snook
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
Sast week I
only got out a
few times due
to the extreme con-
ditions. What was
going to be a fully
booked week of
charters turned in
to lots of cancelled
trips. A few brave
clients did stick with
the plan, wrapped up, and had some
pretty good days of fishing.
Sheepshead, redfish and trout still ate
well even though the water was at 58
degrees. With even colder temperatures
on the way the next few mornings, I
fear a big snook kill this year. There are
a lot of snook around right now but I
have not been fishing them at all. Snook,
with such cold water temperatures, are
in a hibernation mode and under what
is called cold stress. With season closed I
don't even mess with them and am keep-


ing my fingers crossed that they make it
through to fight another day. Nothing is
more depressing than to see snook killed
by the cold.
Sheepshead fishing was the best thing
going last week with fish up to 5 pounds.
Every mangrove spot we fished trying for
redfish produced sheepshead too. Fishing
deeper channels in the five- to six-foot
deep range with bottom structure made
for non-stop action on the striped bait
stealers. Once anglers got the hang of
how sheepshead bite we caught fish after
fish. For bait we used pieces of shrimp
double hooked on a 1/8 oz jig head with
a #1 hook. On one trip this week we
ended up with 16 keepers.
With a limit of 15 sheepshead per
angler, this really allows you to fill a cool-
er. With all the tight regulations on other
species, sheepshead is one of the only
options to bring lots of filets home for
that neighborhood fish fry. Sheepshead
have to measure 12 inches to the fork
of the tail to be legal size but unless they
are 14 inches plus there is not really
very much meat on them. The meat is
firm and white but they have a very large
rib cage and sharp fins and should be
handled with care when fileting or even
dehooking.


Send Us Your Fish Tales
The Island Sun would like to hear from anglers about their catches. Send us
details including tackle, bait and weather conditions, date of catch, species
and weight, and include photographs with identification. Drop them at
the Island Sun, 1640 Periwinkle Way, Suite 2, Sanibel, or email to

Sea trout fishing was feast or famine
last week with either one after another
caught or none at all. During cold windy
conditions I look for deeper channels and
basins that are out of the wind to hold
these fish. Cold snaps really move the
trout off the shallow flats and into deeper
sand holes or channels. These channels
can either be canals, canal basins or deep
creeks back in sheltered mangroves. The
Chino Island channel held lots of keeper
size trout one day, then none the next.
When the wind is out of the northwest
and it's sheltered, it was good action but
when its switched to the northeast, it
really turned off. Five- to eight-foot deep
channels in the "Ding" Darling refuge
also held lots of trout this week with the
majority coming right from the middle of
the channels.
We did find a few redfish, most on
the small end of the slot. The big red for
the week only went 21 inches and was
caught mixed in with the rats. Fishing
small narrow feeder creeks in the refuge
on live shrimp with the bait right on the
bottom and tight to the mangroves was
the pattern that worked for the reds, as it
will be in all winter long. When you find
these reds it's not unusual to pull 20-plus
fish from one hole but only one or two of
the 20 will be keeper size. I love catching
these little reds as they make for non-stop
action.
Hopefully this week conditions will
warm back up to normal. Cold snaps are
a regular part of winter fishing but snook
are just not used to such extended cold
periods. They are more affected by cold
than any other fish in our area. During
extreme cold periods they will appear
lethargic and can be seen on the surface


where the water may be warmer from
the heat of the sun. All fishing regulations
still apply and these snook cannot be
harvested even if they are dying or dead.
Enjoy seeing them but leave them alone
- they are the future of our great local
snook fishery.
The Florida Wildlife Commission asks
the public to report dead and dying fish
to the Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511.
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.0

Relive The
Sounds Of Sinatra


Steve Lippia


teve Lippia and his Big Band will
transport you back to the days
of the Rat Pack as they perform
Frank Sinatra's pop standards at BIG
ARTS Schein Performance Hall on
Saturday, January 23 at 8 p.m. Lippia's
Simply Sinatra is a glamorous evening
of jazz, swing, and Sinatra-style big band
sound.
Tickets are $41 loge, $36 floor, and
free for student/child with paying adult.


Lippia is not only a nationally promi-
nent, in-demand vocalist, but vocally, he's
a dead ringer for Frank Sinatra. He cre-
ates a perfect blend of classic with today
as he introduces a new generation to this
timeless music, while appealing to long-
time listeners.
His great voice, excellent stage pres-
ence, and charisma have thrilled audienc-
es where he headlined at major venues in
Las Vegas, Atlantic City, New York City,
Europe, and symphonies across the U.S.
Lippia has recently performed a high-
ly-successful, extended engagement at
The Rio in Las Vegas and has appeared
on many network television shows includ-
ing EXTRA, FOX's Good Day New
York, CNN's Showbiz Today, and the
BBC. Lippia combined his acting skills
and vocal stylings to the light comedy-
musical hit show, The Rat Pack Is Back!,
at The Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas for a
14-month run.
Headlining numerous times at the
legendary Birdland Jazz Club in New
York City, he was backed by the Nelson
Riddle and Woody Herman orchestras.
His much acclaimed, self-titled CD was
recorded with a 41-piece symphony.
Steve Lippia Live is a collection of some
of his live performances. He is currently
in production for this third CD.

Monday Night Movie
Bottle Shock
by Priscilla

TR Pascall,
Director of the
IF a J BIG ARTS
SFilm Society, has
Planned a spe-
cial evening on
Monday, January
18, in coopera-
tion with The Grog
Shop in Bailey's
Shopping Center. There will be a wine
tasting of a variety of wines including
Chateau Montelena, which is featured in
Bottle Shock, at 5:30 p.m. prior to the
showing of the film at 7 p.m. Tickets
for the wine tasting and the film are
$15; tickets for the film only are the
usual price of $7.
Bottle Shock is a tale of comeup-
pance for the French at their annual blind
tasting known as the Judgment of Paris.
A Brit wine merchant (Alan Rickman)
exhibiting snobbery associated with wine
connoisseurs (and some British) also fig-
ures in the 1976 occasion when Napa
Valley wine made good internationally.
Director Randall Miller has woven
a fictional treatment of the occurrence
around a family attempting to perfect
their chardonnay in a rustic, dusty
California valley. Bill Pullman plays the
dad, Jim Barrett, who tries to gain accep-
tance for his wine, motivate his boys and

Stephen Hunter wrote in his review
in the Washington Post last year, "The
movie... offers a lot of fun for those of us
who like our wine cold, our Rickman tart
and our pickups rusted out."
Bottle Shock will be shown at 7 p.m.
in Schein Hall at BIG ARTS. A discus-
sion following the film will be led by Stan
Gembicki on the Gainer Veranda. Tickets
can be purchased in advance at BIG

An Evening With
Edgar Allan Poe
- by Di Saggau
have long been
fascinated with
Sthe writings of
fI Edgar Allan Poe.
I've even wondered
what it would be
like to go back
in time and meet
the man. Last
week at Theatre
Conspiracy, I was
able to do the
next best thing. Edgar Allan Poe comes
alive on stage thanks to the talents of
actor and playwright Will Stutts. In his
one-man-show, A Journey Through
the Mind... Edgar Allan Poe, Stutts
becomes Poe. He enters the stage with
a flurry of his long cape speaking to an
imaginary journalist who is there to hear
Poe's story. He talks about his parents,
the father who abandoned him, and his
mother, an actress, who died during a
performance of Julius Caesar.
He was taken in by a wealthy family
who sent him to the best schools, but Poe
became bored and eventually found him-
S self heavy in debt due to his involvement
with games of chance. No one would bail
him out.
Penniless and with shattered dreams,
he joined the military. At this point Poe
talks about coming across a coffin in a
mausoleum where he decides a man had


IjE 4
IF-
ISLAnDIflf


been buried alive. He says to the journal-
ist, "What do you mean is it a true story?
What does it matter?"
Poe wanted to write and create
images in one's mind greater than any
words could tell. It's been said that Poe
languished over every word he wrote, try-
ing to give purpose to each one. Stutts
has done the same in this play. All of
the dialogue is meaningful and gives us
an insight into Poe's genius and possible
madness.
He talks about marriage to his
14-year-old cousin Virginia, the only per-
son to give him purpose in life. After her
early death, he spent more time with the
spirits of the bottle, because they never
die. It's clever the way Stutts incorporates
a few works of Poe into the show.
He talks about Fortunato and The
Cask of Amontillado as if he had just
sealed up the wall. His reference to
The Tell-Tale Heart, and Annabel Lee
also lend credence to Poe's ability to
spin a tale. The many bells chiming in
Philadelphia were apparently his influence
for The Bells.
Stutts captures the essence of Poe
in this carefully crafted show. It was
easy to feel that we were in his study
listening to him talk about his life and
works. I highly recommend this show.

Renowned Pianist

Performance
And Reception


Pianist Barbara Nissman


internationally renowned pianist
Barbara Nissman will grace the stage
at BIG ARTS Thursday, January 21.
The concert begins at 8 p.m. with a
champagne reception with the artist fol-
lowing the performance.
Nissman's career has taken her all
around the world, from being launched
by Eugene Ormandy in Philadelphia, to
performing the first complete cycle of
Prokofiev's piano sonatas in London,
to working with Argentine composer
Alberto Ginastera. She continues to be
passionate about performing after more


than 30 years.
Tickets are $41 loge, $36 floor, stu-
dents free with paying adult. Nissman will
perform in Schein Performance Hall.
Well known for her definitive record-
ings of the complete piano music of
Alberto Ginastera, and the complete
piano sonatas of Sergei Prokofiev,
Nissman was hailed by a New York
critic as "one of the last pianists in
the grand Romantic tradition of Liszt,
Rachmaninoff, and Rubinstein."
She has performed with the
London Philharmonic, the Royal
Philharmonic, the BBC Symphony,
the Rotterdam Philharmonic, and the
Munich Philharmonic; in the U.S.
she has appeared with the New York
Philharmonic, the Pittsburgh Symphony,
the St. Louis Symphony, the Philadelphia
Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony, the
National Symphony, and the Cleveland
Orchestra. She has worked with some of
the major conductors of our time includ-
ing Eugene Ormandy, Riccardo Muti,
Stanislaw Skrowaczewski and Leonard
Slatkin.
In 1989 she made history by becom-
ing the first pianist to perform the com-
plete piano sonatas of Sergei Prokofiev
in recitals her recordings of this reper-
toire represented the first complete set
of Prokofiev sonatas made available on
compact disc. A noted Prokofiev scholar,
Nissman collaborated on a detailed study
of the Prokofiev manuscripts, and was
invited by the Moscow Conservatory for
concerts and master classes on Prokofiev.
She also presented master classes at the
St. Petersburg Conservatory.
Nissman is the dedicatee of Ginastera's
final work, the Third Piano Sonata. She
was invited by the composer to play his


Piano Concerto No. 1 with I'Orchestre
de la Suisse Romande in celebration of
his 60th birthday.
She recently appeared on stage with
Don Henley and Billy Joel, performing in
a fundraiser at Lincoln Center. She was
also one of the participants with Leonard
Slatkin at the Kennedy Center's 25th
Anniversary Gala Concert broadcast on
PBS Television.
The concert is sponsored by Helen
Demetrios and Michael Stadther. The
reception is hosted by Andrea and Phil
Gainer.

Children's

Touring Theatre
F lorida Repertory Theatre's
Children's Touring Theatre Series
is now open and accepting book-
ings for schools and venues throughout
Southwest Florida.
The series features two unique plays
for students of all ages, The New Kid for
grades K-5 and And Then They Came
for Me, a new take on the Anne Frank
story for grades five through 12.
"We are breaking new ground with
our touring shows this season," said
Education Director Rachael Endrizzi.
"Both are topical, issue-based plays, and
for the first time we have a play whose
target audience is middle and high school
students. And Then They Came for Me
combines theater and documentary to tell
the Anne Frank story in a new way, and
ties in with required Holocaust Studies
curriculum."
Each year Florida Repertory Theatre's
Education Department produces at least
two plays for children in kindergarten
through 6th grades, and is expand-
ing the program this season to include
high school students. These shows are
high-energy, educational and perfect for
almost any space.
In addition to the performance, each
school gets a talkback with the actors,
and receives a study guide packed with
additional information about the play,


Jackie Schram, Emily Ryan, Daniel Benzing
and Adam Jones in And Then They Came
for Me
discussion prompts and activities for
students. Educators have the option to
choose just one, or both plays, to be per-
formed on the same or different dates.
Tour dates are available through May
28. "These plays bring the magic of live
theater in to the classroom," Endrizzi
said. "All you need is an auditorium, gym-
nasium or cafeteria."

Author To Speak Program On
At Sanibel Library Afghan-Pakistan
Conflict


Nancy R. Koerner
uthor Nancy R. Koerner will
make an appearance at the
Sanibel Public Library on
Wednesday January 27 at 2 p.m. She
will discuss her personal story Belize
Survivor: Darker Side of Paradise.
There is no fee to attend the program
and it is open to all.
Koerner was born in eastern Ohio and
raised in northwestern Pennsylvania. In
1976, she and her husband and infant
son moved to the rainforests of Central
America as modern-day pioneers seek-
ing what should have been a utopian jun-
gle paradise. But instead, Koerner expe-
rienced untold hardships in a primitive
land including earthquake, flood, fire, and
hurricane. There she learned about the
darker side of human nature and survived
unspeakable domestic violence at the
hands of her husband. Although Belize
was a country of rare tropical splendor,
she was completely isolated in a foreign
land with no options for escape. Only her
inner spiritual strength and exceptional
resourcefulness would get her through.
Her story is inspiring and empowering
- a story for all women who have faced
and triumphed over impossible odds. The
Sanibel Public Library is at 770 Dunlop
Road. For more information call 472-
2483.

On Thursday, January 21, 7
p.m., the Democratic Club of
the Islands will present a pro-
gram featuring Joyce Ramay speaking
about Afghanistan and Pakistan at the
Sanibel Public Library. Ramay is both
well-informed and steeped in the history
of this vital and volatile part of today's
world. Ramay will give her insights on
the complexities of the Afghan-Pakistan
situation, enlighten the group on the
events leading up to today and discuss
how past decisions and actions have had
negative consequences.
Ramay lived in Pakistan for 10 years
from 1988 to 1998. She was adminis-
trator and founder of Hajvery University
of business administration, engineering,
fashion design, and computer science in
Lahore, Pakistan. She wrote a weekly
political opinion column for a leading
progressive newspaper in Pakistan.
From 1998 to 2006 she lived part-time
in Fort Myers and part-time in Lahore,
Pakistan. Now she is a full-time Fort
Myers resident. She was married to the
late Haneef Ramay, a founding member
of the Pakistan People's Party, speaker
of the assembly and chief minister of the
Punjab, and a federal senator. Ramay
is presently chairperson of All Faiths
Unitarian Congregation. She is a gradu-
ate of the University of Minnesota, with
majors in world and diplomatic history,
anthropology and psychology.


The event is open to all. The Sanibel
Public Library is at 770 Dunlop Road.A

owed Helen Ames and her 27-year-old
daughter Tessa as they discover that
money has disappeared in several big
withdrawals from the Ames' retirement
savings. What Helen's husband did with
all their money turns out to be provoca-
tive, revelatory, and leads Helen and her
daughter to embark on new adventures,
and change.
The group discussion begins promptly
at 2 p.m. library ground floor meeting
room across from the elevator (Meeting
Room 4). It is preferable to come having
read the book to be able to join in the
lively discussion, but all are welcome. If

Berg will be speaking as part of the
Author's Series presented by the Sanibel

Book Signing


Mary Alice Monroe will be at the
Sanibel Island Bookshop, 1571
Periwinkle Way, Sanibel on
Friday, January 23 at 11 a.m.
Monroe has written stories for as long
as she can remember. As a child she
could always be found curled up with a
book or writing. One of her strongest


Mary Alice Monroe
memories is her first trip to the public
library. She couldn't believe all those
books were there for her! When they
gave her her first library card, she felt as
though she'd been given the keys to a
candy shop for her imagination. She still
feels the same thrill in libraries and book-
stores, just browsing through the books.
She claims much of her creative spark
came from her large and very close fami-
ly. Growing up, she and her nine brothers
and sisters wrote and performed in their
own plays and musicals. Some wrote,
painted, sang or played instruments.
Her teachers recognized her talent and
encouraged her to write. She first pur-


l~i '..A.1
%le


sued nonfiction and studied journalism.
Later, she was the assistant to the gen-
eral editor for Encyclopedia Britannica
and worked with world famous artists,
authors, composers, and scientists.
Not until years later did fate intervene.
When her doctor confined her to bed
for the final months of her pregnancy,
Monroe's husband handed her a yellow
notepad and pencil and urged her to
write the novel she had always dreamed
about. Knowing she might never again
have that gift of time, she wrote and
wrote. "I gave birth to a baby and a
book," says the author.
A dozen books later, Monroe has
found her voice in fiction. Although
known for her intimate portrayals of
women's lives, her writing has gained
added purpose and depth with her move
to the Lowcountry. An active environ-
mentalist, she draws themes for her
novels from nature and the parallels with
human nature, thus drawing attention
to various endangered species and the
human connection to the natural world.
Monroe is involved with several envi-
ronmental groups and is on the board of
the South Carolina Aquarium. Her work
with these groups provided the inspira-
tion for her novels The Beach House,
Skyward, Sweetgrass, Swimming
Lessons, Her Children's Book, Turtle
Summer, Time Is A River, and Last
Light Over Carolina. She is currently
working on a new novel, due out in
spring 2011.

Author To Appear
At The Library
Author Tim Jacobs will speak on
his book HE Heitman: Early
Entrepreneur of Fort Myers on
Monday, January 18 at 6:30 p.m. The
author will discuss his book based on
local history.
In late October 1888, a young man by
the name of Harvie Earnhardt Heitman
arrived in Fort Myers. Little did the citi-
zens know that this stranger, all of 16
years old at the time, would change the
look of Fort Myers.
A short 10 years later, Heitman
secured the corner of Jackson and First
streets and built the first brick building in
town. But he didn't stop there. He went
on to build numerous brick structures
along First Street, including The Bank
of Fort Myers, The Arcade Theatre, The
Bradford Hotel, The Bradford Annex,
and the Earnhardt building.
Jacobs was born in Connecticut and
moved to Fort Myers in 2003. His writ-
ings have appeared in numerous papers,
magazines including Gulf & Main and
Lighthouse Digest, and he has written
four other books. He is a member of
the Sons of the American Revolution,
Gulf Coast Writer's Association, and is
the editor for Patriots of the American
Revolution a bimonthly publication
about the revolutionary war.0

speakers on Thursday, January 21.

for women's rights around the world. She
is the cofounder of Thirty Four Million
Friends of the United Nations Population
Fund, was one of the Women of the Year


for Ms. Magazine, one of the 21 Leaders
of the 21st Century for Women's eNews,

articles, as a regular contributor to
MaximsNews Network for the United
Nations and published her book, 34
Million Friends of the Women of the
World in 2005. She tells powerful stories
of women in developing countries who
suffer with no access to health services.

the New York Times has written about
her in his column and in his book, Half
the Sky.
Known to Sanibel residents as a past
mayor of the Sanibel, Theiss is now the
executive director of Human Trafficking
Awareness Partnerships, a non-profit
organization she founded three years ago.
The organization has brought awareness
to the issue of modern day slavery and
has helped community leaders form coali-
tions to fight human trafficking. Theiss
has written and co-authored articles and
presentations on human trafficking, and
her work has been featured in numerous
newspapers and magazines, and at aca-
demic forums in the U.S. and around the
world. She will discuss the many faces of
human trafficking and the progress made
to combat it in the U.S. and Canada.
Both women are true forces for
change and proof that one person can
make a difference.
The public is invited to join the discus-
sion in BIG ARTS Phillips Gallery at 10
a.m. Tickets are $5 at the door.

Sanibel Snapshots
by Francesca Joyce
Happy sight today:
The white pelicans are back,
with grace, clean water.
Reading a poem by our bayou-
the heron rises,
herself a poem.
Nature's red in tooth and claw;
yet how close we live
with alligators.
By the sea, by the beautiful sea-
red tide comes in, a wake of death.
Charmed by red sails in the sunset;
saddened to see
red tide on the beach.
Canopy of trees
shades this island; hurricane
carves a path for sun.


On this island, Time
is never of the essence.
We sway like palm trees.
Francesca Joyce was born and raised
in Brooklyn, spent the '70s, '80s, '90s
in Park Slope, a beautiful brownstone
neighborhood on Prospect Park. She
and her husband, artist Dennis Joyce,
moved to Sanibel from Upstate New

member of Writers' Group 5; her co-
writers are talented, supportive and
encouraging; she loves working with
them.4

42 ISLAND SUN JANUARY 15, 2010

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF JANUARY 18, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Use that
Arian charm to help make a difficult work-
place transition easier for everyone. News
about a long-awaited decision can be confus-
ing. Don'tjump to conclusions.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
Although you might well be tempted to be
more extravagant than you should be at this
time, I'm betting you'll let your sensible
Bovine instinct guide you toward modera-
tion.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) An
opportunity for travel could come with some
problems regarding travel companions and
other matters. So be sure you read all the fine
print before you start packing.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Make
an effort to complete your usual workplace
tasks before volunteering for extra duty.
Scrambling to catch up later on could create
some resentment among your colleagues.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) A finan-
cial matter could have you rethinking your
current spending plans. You might want
to recheck your budget to see where you
can cut back on expenses until the situation
improves.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
One way to make your case for that promo-
tion you've been hoping for might be to put
your planning skills to work in helping to
shape up a project that got out of hand. Good
luck.
LI BRA (September 23 to October 22)
Be careful about "experts" who have no solid
business background. Instead, seek advice
on enhancing your business prospects from
bona fide sources with good success records.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Standing up to support a colleague's view-


point -- even if it's unpopular -- can be diffi-
cult if you feel outnumbered. But you'll win
plaudits for your honesty and courage.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) While progress continues on
resolving that recurring problem, you might
feel it's taking too long. But these things
always need to develop at their own pace. Be
patient.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Someone close to you might have a
financial problem and seek your advice. If
you do decide to get involved, insist on see-
ing everything that might be relevant to this
situation.
AQUARI US (January 20 to February
18) A personal matter takes an interesting
turn. The question is, do you want to follow
the new path or take time out to reconsider
the change? Think this through before decid-
ing.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Moving into a new career is a big step.
Check that offer carefully with someone who
has been there, done that, and has the facts
you'll need to help you make your decision.
BORN THIS WEEK: Your warmth
and generosity both of spirit and substance
endears you to everyone.


On Jan. 18, 1778, English explorer
Captain James Cook becomes the first
European to discover the Hawaiian Islands
when he sails past the island of Oahu.
He named the island group the Sandwich
Islands, in honor of John Montague, who the
earl of Sandwich.
On Jan. 21, 1789, "The Power of
Sympathy: Or, the Triumph of Nature.
Founded in Truth" is printed in Boston. The
book was the first novel by an American
writer to be published in America. The


first editions of the book did not carry the
author's name, but it was later attributed to
William Hill Brown.
On Jan. 24, 1927, young director
Alfred Hitchcock's first film, "The Pleasure
Garden," is released in England. While the
film marked an impressive debut, Hitchcock
considered his next film, "The Lodger"
(known in the United States as "The Case of
Jonathan Drew"), to be his first true accom-
plishment.
On Jan. 19, 1940, the Three Stooges
film "You Natzy Spy" is released.
Anticipating Charlie Chaplin's "The Great
Dictator" by nine months, Moe Howard
played a Hitler-like dictator of a fictional
country, "Moronica."
On Jan. 23, 1957, machines at the
Wham-O toy company roll out the first
batch of its aerodynamic plastic discs -- now
known to millions of fans all over the world
as Frisbees. The story of the Frisbee began
in Bridgeport, Conn., in 1871. Students from
nearby universities would throw the empty
pie tins to each other, yelling "Frisbie!" as
they let go.
On Jan. 22, 1973, in a historic deci-
sion, the U.S. Supreme Court rules in Roe v.
Wade that women, as part of their constitu-
tional right to privacy, can terminate a preg-
nancy during its first two trimesters.
On Jan. 20, 1981, minutes after Ronald
Reagan's inauguration as the 40th presi-
dent of the United States, the 52 U.S. cap-
tives held at the U.S. embassy in Teheran,
Iran, are released, ending the 444-day Iran
Hostage Crisis. The crisis began on Nov. 4,
1979, when militant Iranian students seized
the embassy.


It was American humorist Evan Esar
who came up the following definition:


"Statistics: The only science that enables dif-
ferent experts using the same figures to draw
different conclusions."
The Emperor Charlemagne, who con-
quered much of Western and Central Europe
during the first century, had an unusual
relationship with his daughters. He refused to
allow them to get married, but he evidently
had no objections to their forming, shall we
say, less formal relationships. He doted on
his illegitimate grandchildren and even gave
money and gifts to their fathers.
If you look at a list of the names of the
50 states, you'll find every letter of the alpha-
bet except Q.
You won't be surprised to learn that the
most dangerous device that is common in the
modem world is the automobile. You might
be surprised to learn, though, that the second
most dangerous is the stair step.
You've probably never heard of
Countess Rosa Branicka, but she accom-
plished an amazing feat. In the mid-19th
century, at the age of 63, the wealthy Polish
noblewoman became ill. The diagnosis given
by experts in Germany was breast cancer,
and immediate surgery was recommended.
For reasons unknown, the countess declined
the treatment, then set about purchasing her
own surgical instruments. Once all the tools
were assembled, Branicka checked into a
hotel in Paris and removed the tumor herself.
Reports indicate that she healed well and
quickly, and lived to the ripe old age of 82.


"I have not failed. I'vejust found 10,000
ways that won't work." -- Thomas A. Edison

Book Review
How Rome Fell
by Max
Friedersdorf
t the peak of
its power, in
the times of
Julius Caesar and
Marcus Aurelius,
Rome ruled the
known world. North
Africa, Europe north
to the Rhine, the
British Isles and Asia
Minor were all occupied territory and paid
allegiance to the Roman emperors.
Vast coliseums, military watchtowers,
paved roads, aquaducts, lengthy boundary
walls and beautiful columned government
buildings were constructed throughout the
empire; the ruins still stand 2,000 years
later in modern-day England, Italy, Spain,
France, Germany, Tunisia and throughout
the Mediterranean basin.
Rome lasted for 500 years, but in 476
AD, it all collapsed. Invaders from north-
ern Europe and Asia swept through the
previously-invincible Roman Legions all
the way to the heart of Rome itself. The
city was pillaged and looted, much of the
population slain or enslaved.
For centuries, historians have been
speculating on the causes of the sudden


demise of Rome. Many theories have
been advanced and these suppositions
applied to modern empires as cautionary
tales to avoid.
Corruption of the Roman Senate and
its abdication of political power to suc-
cessive emperors has been advanced as a
chief cause of collapse.
Other theories are the corruption of
the third and fourth century emperors
themselves; debasing of the Roman mon-
etary system; excessive cost of the military
to defend the farflung boundaries of the
empire; destruction of the Roman middle
class by excessive taxation; dependence
on a disloyal, mercenary army; debauch-
ery and moral collapse of the citizenry,
and revolt of enslaved and conquered
peoples and religions.
Historians have even pointed to the
presence of lead in the pipes of the
Roman water supply system which caused
lead poisoning among the city elite and
drove them crazy.
However, a provocative new book,
entitled How Rome Fell, by British histo-
rian John Goldsborough, makes a strong
case that constant civil war was a major
cause for Rome's collapse.
Goldsborough, author of CAESAR, a
prize-winning biography of Julius Caesar,
maintains that more Roman soldiers were
killed fighting each other than all the casu-
alities from foreign wars.
Rome had a very casual system of suc-
cession for emperors. Incumbents were


constantly assassinated, setting off lethal
battles for the throne among usurpers and
pretenders, usually from the ranks of the
military. Factions in the army lined up
with the contenders and fought civil wars
to gain power.
By 476 AD, Goldsborough observes,
the military had been bled white by the
civil wars and proved easy prey for the
war-like Germanic and Asian invaders.
How Rome Fell, by John
Goldsborough, hardback, 2009, illus-
trated, 482 pages. Available at the Sanibel
Public Library and all fine Sanibel book-
stores.

Around The Islands With Anne
Longtime Store Makes Crafty Move;
And McT's Is Reclaiming Its Niche
by Anne Mitchell


hree Crafty
Ladies has
made a move
that gives the long-
time store an extra
300 square feet of
retail space and
room to start adding
some workshops.
The move is just a
few doors to the west
from its prior location in Heart of the Island
shopping center at 1628 Periwinkle Way,
Sanibel.
Part-time island resident Johanna
Felberbaum purchased the business in
September from Trudie Prevatt, one of the
original owners. Felberbaum has been a
customer at the store for over 20 years and
has always been an active crafter.
She says she won't change much, but
would like to add some activities.
"A lot of things will stay the same. We
will continue to carry wonderful fabrics,
quilting patterns, shelling items and beading
supplies," she said. "Since we have more
space, we are looking to do some work-
shops." Just what type of workshops is yet
to be determined.
The regular demonstrations and "make it a
take it" sessions will continue.
One big step has been "to bring the store
into the 20th century" by starting a blog that
includes news, pictures and a calendar of ever
It was be accessed at threecraftyladies@blogsr
com.
Felberbaum said what she loves about the
new space is all the natural light, "which is
important when you're looking at colors and
fabrics." The store is noted for its specialty fat
rics depicting just about any object under the
Sanibel sun.
The store also has an exclusive line of
quilt patterns designed by the manager, Carol
Decesare.
For more information about Three Crafty
Ladies, call 472-2893.

eran of the restaurant business, McT's Shrin

groove back.
White, a former general manager of the
Audubon Country Club in Naples, came out of 4
retirement to help owners Paul and Margareta
Gaeta return McT's to its place as one of
the most popular seafood restaurants on the
islands.
The changes began about five months ago
and include new high top tables and high stools
in the bar, and a lighter, brighter look to the bar
and restaurant, including new, colorful plates.
"The lobster tank has been repaired," said
White, "and we will bring back the tavern lob-
ster at $19.95."
As for the rest of the menu, there will be
a renewed emphasis on shrimp and seafood Restaurateur Brenda Biddle is a dis-
dishes and the raw bar but in addition, White tributor for a local line of weight loss,
is adding a selection of "comfort food" specials nutrition and skin care products
such as meatloaf with mashed potatoes, liver
and onions, stuffed green peppers and baked chicken.
"Shrimp has always been McT's niche. We are just going to do it better," he said.
There will be more attention to detail, the finishing touches, presentation and conti-


-------a






tinuity. "My theory is that people eat with
their eyes," he explained.
But for all that is changing, many
things will remain the same, such as the
ever-popular Mud Pie for which McT's is
well known, and the All-you-can-eat snow
crab. Also, there will still be many familiar
faces among the employees, some of
whom have worked there for over 20
years.
If you haven't been in for a while,
you'll notice that the bar has been recon-
figured as a rectangle with stools all
around. The booths are gone but the
upside-down trees remain firmly in place.
McT's seats 160 in the restaurant and
26 in the bar. It is at 1523 Periwinkle
Way, Sanibel, phone 472-3161.
After losing 45 pounds over the sum-
mer, Brenda Biddle, a local restaura-
teur, decided to start selling the line of
products that contributed to her success
in shedding those pounds.
She and her husband Andy are dis-
tributors for Isxperia, which specializes
in nutritional, weight loss, skin care,
health benefits, computer protection
and even vacations. Together they own
Biddles Bucket on Sanibel and Biddle's
Restaurant & Piano Bar in Fort Myers.
Being a business owner and mother,
Biddle says the great thing about Ixperia
is how flexible the work is. "I do most of
it by email and I can do it any hour of the
day if I choose to or not. I have no one
to answer to, little to no obligations, and
being that I see a lot of people, I can tie
it into my businesses very easily."
She added, "I am building a network
quickly here in Fort Myers and Sanibel
for one reason only and that is our prod-


ucts speak for themselves and they are
good for you. The owners of the compa-
ny, Christopher and Michael Bratta, have
resided right here in the lona area for the
past three years."
The company is three years old
and held its first convention at Sanibel
Harbour Resort in October, which Biddle
attended before joining the company.
She takes two nutritional OPC+ which
contain grape seed extract, acai berry and
Resveratrol, and Aloe Red as well as two
weight loss products, Is Lean & Calorie
Free, and B-12.
Every Thursday, there's a busi-
ness reception for Isxperia at Biddle's

give a presentation on the products and

Sanibel Adult Softball League
Great White Chomps Their
Way Into 2nd Place, Aztec
Sends Bailey's Down The Drain
by Nick Brown
One week remains in the Sanibel Softball League and the post-season tourna-
ment brackets are shaping up.
Last Wednesday night the Great White Grill cooked up their opponents, All
Island Glass, in a critical game. They cracked All Island Glass in a 28-10 victory.
Later on in the evening the Great White received some help that allowed them to
clinch second place.
That help came from the Aztec Plumbing Warriors. The Aztecs donned their war
paint and flushed away Bailey's Baggers' hope for second place with a decisive 28-10
win. Aztec pitcher Steve Gibson noted, "We shall build a burial mound of our defeated
opponents."
Thanks to the combination of the Great White win and a Bailey's loss, the Great
White clinched 2nd place for the season and Bailey's clinches 3rd place.
In the other game of the evening, the Beachview Rec'N'Crew rolled the bulldozer
over yet another opponent Sanctuary Island Electric 28-18. It was the first game in
league history to have a total of four over-the-fence homeruns.
Beachview, who already had 1st place clinched, sorely hurt the post-season tourna-
ment chances of Sanctuary Electric. Despite their loss, Sanctuary still controls their
own destiny.
Sanctuary and Aztec Plumbing Warriors are now tied for the final playoff spot
with one week left. Sanctuary's game next week will be against a determined Bailey's
Baggers team whereas Aztec Plumbing will square off against the formidable Great

White Grill. Should the two teams end the season with a tie, Sanctuary Island Electric
would take fourth place because they have the edge over Aztec in head-to-head games.
Thus, Aztec Plumbing in effect needs to win their game and have Sanctuary Electric
lose theirs.
It should be an exciting week of softball next Wednesday!O

Rotary Happenings
submitted by Shirley Jewell
W we're back, back to regular Rotary meeting protocols, opening rituals,
updates on committee work, reports on fundraising activities, and outstand-
ing speaker presentations.
Last week Rotarians were pleased to have as our guest speaker Carol Rothman,
development assistant of CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) on
Sanibel. Carol is a fantastic representative of this extraordinary non-profit wildlife
rehabilitation/veterinary hospital facility (one of the oldest of its kind in the United
States). This organization has a remarkable mission of rehabilitating injured, sick,
and orphaned native and migratory wildlife; not only on our islands, but all over
Lee and Collier counties. When first opened in 1970 the clinic could care for about
500 patients; those numbers grew exponentially over the years. They are now ser-
vicing somewhere around 4,000 patients a year. Last year CROW opened a new
4,800-square-foot facility through the generous support of donors. The new building
includes a state-of-the-art veterinary hospital and the Healing Winds Visitor Education
Center.
Anyone familiar with our islands power outages will envy the new backup generator
at CROW, with a 15-second kick-in response and capacity to run for up to nine days
- $100,000 funded by an anonymous donor. There's also a digital x-ray machine, a
new elevator that can transport the larger patient, i.e. sea turtles, up to the treatment
area. The new surgical room's glass window allows observation by staff and visitors.
Patient cages have been upgraded, one being a stand up cage for taller birds such as
blue herons. There is even a new climate control reptile room. Carol was rattling off
the features of the new building and I'm sure I missed some of the details, but all this
serves one purpose; to rehabilitate wildlife. The updated equipment and increased
square footage allows the patients to be treated quickly, effectively and provides a bet-
ter chance of recovery for CROW patients.
Twenty-five percent of the patients brought to CROW have been struck by a vehicle
and 25 percent are orphaned; the remaining percentage have mostly had encounters
with some form of human callousness. CROW seeks to prevent these hazards and
environmental ones through a variety of educational programs designed to help us
respect and protect our native wildlife populations and to preserve the delicate natural
balance required by the habitat they must share. If you haven't visited the new CROW
facility yet, why not put it on your New Year's list of must dos.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday morning at
Beachview Steakhouse, 1100 Par View Drive. If you have any questions regarding
Rotary call 337-1099.0

Tennis Basics
Two-Hand Vs. One-
Hand Backhand
by Louis Vosloo
T here has been
an ongoing
Ii battle between
S which backhand
. a is better to use in
today's game; the
one-hand backhand
or the two-hand
backhand. There
is no right answer.
There are several
advantages and disadvantages to both.
The two-hand backhand can have
more pace and control on certain shots
because you are using two hands. The
return of serve is usually easier with two
hands as your racket is more stable and
hitting high balls is easier (especially on
the second serve). On the other hand,
the one-hand backhand allows you to
have more variety in your shots. For
example, the chip and charge is easier
to hit because you are able to get under
the short ball and slice. And when you
are out of position the one-handed
backhand allows you extra reach on
your shot.
It is normally a personal preference
in choosing which backhand you want
to establish. If you are a two-handed
player it is very beneficial to learn to hit
the one-handed slice as this covers all the
bases. Then you can play a high ball, low

Highlights from Week 14: Fresh
Conaway's four straight wins at
the end of the match enabled
the Fresh Legion Team to stay within
one game of the second place One Ball
Wonders. The teams tied 8-8 in their
battle for second place. Wonders lead
off shooter Kelly Greten kicked off the
match with four wins over Doc Lubinski.
His teammates then managed only four
more wins over the next 12 games to
allow the Legion to remain only one
game behind in the standings.


Rich Ennis and Dave Doane had 4-0
nights for Bunt's Ball Busters. But after
winning their first eight games the Ball
Busters came apart at the seams. Sanibel
Cafe's John Earle pounded Buster's
rookie Kip Johnson 3 to 1 and the Cafe's
Pete Mindel again surprised Buster's
Captain Buntrock with a resounding 3-1

and his opponent's advancing old age.

Frigid Florida

No Problem For

Loren Roberts
by Max Friedersdorf
On a recent, cold, ugly, windy
south Florida day, Loren Roberts,
top golfer on the Senior PGA
Tour, was out on the golf course prepar-
ing for the ACE Golf Classic February 8
to 14.
"I'm different than a lot of guys on the
senior tour; I don't put my clubs away at
the end of the season," Roberts explained
after his wind-swept round in 38-degree
weather at the Quarry, a championship
course just south of the Lee County line
off Immokolee Road, four miles east of
1-75, (exit 111).
"I love to play golf. I try to play golf
every day. I never get tired of it," added
Roberts, who had the season of a life-
time in 2009, winning the ACE Group
Classic, the British Senior Open, the
Charles Schwab Cup as the best senior
golfer, and $1.9 million in prize money.
"Very impressive, a great golf course,"
Roberts opined about the Quarry, a
three-year-old course on the site of an old
stone quarry in northern Collier County.
The 400-acre layout features a mag-
nificent clubhouse, ample parking, and
fan-friendly inside-the-rope access and
clubhouse veranda viewing.
Despite the unseasonal weather,
Roberts said, "I love south Florida," recall-
ing his one-stroke victory last year when


-I-


Champion Tour golfer Loren Roberts
will defend his ACE Group Classic title
February 8 to 14 at the Quarry champion-
ship course on Immokolee Road. Roberts
won the Senior British Open and $1.9 mil-
lion prize money in 2009.


he birdied the last three out of four holes.
This year, Roberts will be up against
six World Golf Hall of Fame members,
including Nick Price, Lanny Wadkins,
Hale Irwin, Curtis Strange, Larry Nelson
and Isao Aoki.
Other big-name competitors will
be Peter Jacobsen, Fred Funk, Mark
McNulty, John Cook, Paul Azinger,
and Champion's Tour newcomers Fred


Couples, Mark Calcevechia and Mark
O'Meara.
Nicknamed Boss of the Moss, Roberts
is known for his putting ability. He fin-
ished the 2009 season ranked second on
the Champions Tour in putting average
(1.71) and first on the tour in sand-save
percentage (67.4 percent).
Asked about his putting ability after
the frigid round at the Quarry, Roberts
replied, "The best putting tip in the world
is to remember that the important thing
35 feet or less is to get the right distance.
No putter is going to be off line more
than two feet, right or left. But, it's amaz-
ing; I see amateurs go past the hole 10
feet, or leave the ball 10 feet short. Work
on your distance!"O

It Was Oh So Close To Cooperstown
For Fort Myers' Popular Dutchman
by Ed Frank
Tust five votes shy 74.2 percent of the 75 percent needed
and we could have celebrated here with the Dutchman
who lives in Fort Myers.
SWe're writing, of course, about Bert Blyleven, the popular
Minnesota Twins television analyst, who missed by a whisker last
week of being voted into Baseball's Hall of Fame.
Only Andre Dawson was elected this year, garnering 420
votes, 77.9 percent in his ninth year on the ballot.
If anyone deserves admission to Cooperstown it's Blyleven
S. who ranks near the top of nearly every all-time pitching category.
Yet this was the 10th year since he became eligible that the
Baseball Writers Association of America failed to give him the
key.
But he was oh so close 400 of the 405 votes needed and an increase from 62.7
percent last year. He has two more years of remaining eligibility.
"Five votes short is a little on the sad side," the Dutchman said from his home in
Fort Myers. "I was hoping that three us would be elected. Congratulations to Andre
Dawson. But I thought that Roberto Alomar would go in as well. I thought it would be
cool to go in with him because I watched him grow up when I played with his dad in
Texas. Hopefully we'll go in together next year."
Many throughout the baseball world
are puzzled why Blyleven has not been
elected to the Hall of Fame.
A native of Zeist, Holland, he hurled
in the Majors for 23 years, 11 with the
Twins, and is only the second in Major
League history to win a game before his
20th birthday and after his 40th birthday.
Here are some of his other career
records:
287 wins 27th on the all-time list.
Fifth in career strikeouts 3,701
Ninth in career shutouts at 60. Of
the top 20 pitchers in shutouts, only
Blyleven is not in the Hall of Fame.
Double figure wins in 17 seasons.
A no-hitter against the California
Angels in 1977 as a member of the
Texas Rangers.
Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer
said it best when he told Major League
Baseball.com, "Blyleven should be in. It's
almost like they (the baseball writers) for-
got how good Bert was." Bert Blyleven
Blyleven said he received a call from
an official in Cooperstown that he was
five votes short. "I'm happy for Andre. I've come close. I'm getting closer. Maybe next
year will be the year.
Let's hope so. Then we can all celebrate with our hometown hero.
Twins Annual Youth Clinic
The Minnesota Twins Annual Youth Clinic for elementary and middle school boys
and girls will be held this Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at Hammond Stadium in the
Lee County Sports Complex.
Hitting, fielding, pitching instruction will be provided by Twins players and staff.
Admission is free and no experience is required.
Everblades in Final Week
Three games this week, one against Reading and two this weekend against
Trenton, will bring a close to the longest road trip 11 games in the franchise his-
tory of the Florida Everblades.
The local hockey team began the week with a 17-15-6 season record after losing
three in a row last week to Reading and Elmira. They did pick up one point in a 5-4
overtime loss to Elmira last Saturday.
With a total of 40 points, the Everblades were tied with Charlotte for second place
in the ECHL South Division.
Florida will return to home ice at Germain Arena next weekend when they host
Gwinnett.0

Hidden Treasures
A Look A The Four
Cs Of Diamonds
by Dan Schuyler
and Karen Bell
Si hen it
\ comes to
v v ring"-ing
in the New Year,
it pays to know
all you can about
selecting the best
diamond. Every
diamond is unique, but all diamonds
have certain characteristics that affect
their value: cut, carat weight, clarity and
color. Valentine's Day is near, so our
next four columns will be devoted to
cutting to the heart of the matter -- how
to purchase the perfect diamond.
Of the four C's, cut is considered to
be the most complex. But, it can also be
a top factor in beauty for most diamonds.
The term cut has two distinct meanings.
One refers to the diamond's shape and
faceting style round, brilliant, princess
cut, marquise and so on. The other refers
to the quality of proportions and finish,
or the relative sizes and angles of the
diamonds parts and facets. What are the
diamond's table size, crown angle and
pavilion depth? Finish includes symmetry
and polish, or the precision of the cutting
and the smoothness of the diamond's
surfaces.
Diamonds that are well cut gather light
from many directions and then reflect the


light outward again. This dazzling display
is described in three components: bril-
liance, dispersion and scintillation.
Brilliance is the total intensity of white
light reflected from the interior and sur-
face, dispersion is the prism effect of
light splitting into rainbow colors giving
the diamond its fire, and scintillation is
the dance of reflections that is seen as
the diamond or the observer moves, also
known as the diamond's sparkle.
Proportions and precision in the cut-
ting process govern the performance of
the light and brilliance described above.
Each facet and angle count towards
enhancing the display.
Cutting for optimal light performance
usually means sacrificing much of the
original diamond crystal's weight. This
can increase the per carat price of the
finished diamond. The time and trouble
needed to produce a high-quality finish
also adds to the cost of the stone. But the
result is a diamond of exceptional beauty
and craftsmanship.
On the converse, proportions can be
adjusted to save extra weight allowing
diamonds to be sold at lower per-carat
prices. But the tradeoff can be a darker
or watery looking diamond. Major varia-
tions from the accepted cutting propor-
tions can also create a diamond that
looks small for its weight or is more likely
to chip or break.
To accurately grade diamond cut qual-
ity takes advanced training, as many of
the measurements are taken by computer
programs and sophisticated instruments.
To best discern whether the cut of a dia-

Along the way he's met people team-
ing with vigor at age 100 and beyond.
Working with the National Institute on
Aging, he identified four small popula-
tions with the world's highest life expec-
tancy. Then, working with a second team
of scientists, he isolated the common
denominator that explains extraordinary
longevity. What is the optimal diet for
making it to a healthy age 90? What
about certain types of exercise and sup-
plements? Does stress really shorten your
life? Buettner debunks the most com-
mon myths and offers a science-backed
blueprint for the average American to
live another 12 quality years. Join The
New York Times best selling author as

Selling Your
Home? Avoid
These Mistakes
by Bridget
Vandenburgh
1. Avoid plac-
ing large pieces of
furniture across the
corner of a room.
Rather, place large
pieces on an angle.
Why? Your room
will appear to have
move visual move-
ment. This will give
a potential buyer the
idea that your room might be a bit larger
and easier to work with for their own fur-
niture placement.
2. If your home features a vaulted wall,
place large pieces of furniture close to the
highest wall. This calls attention to the
wall's architectural interest, and creates
balance in your room.
3. If your home features smaller
rooms, remember less is more. An under-
furnished room is preferable to an over-
furnished room.
4. Change your lampshades. This
quick fix" can give any room an updated
appearance especially if you select dra-
matic black or textured shades.
5. If need a smaller room to seem
more expansive, consider purchasing a
large wall mirror. Mirrors definitely give
the illusion of more space. Just be sure to
take special care in placing your mirror.
You want to be sure that what it reflects is
a pleasing sight.
6. Add some texture. Throws, tasseled
pillows, even an inexpensive area rug can
create a warmer, cozier feel in any room.
7. Let there be light. Be sure your win-
dow treatments are in the "open" posi-
tion, flooding as much light as possible
into each and every room in your home.
8. Add some permanent florals and
greenery. Don't go overboard, but add-
ing a silk tree in a bare corner, or a floral
arrangement on a dining room table adds
lots of ambiance to any room.
9. Go crazy with color... or not! When
selling a home, neutral shades are always
the best. It's difficult for a buyer to see
beyond the colors they see when they
enter a room.
10. Re-accessorize. Your cherished
mementos, while precious to you, might
actually create a barrier in the mind of a
buyer. Think about simple accessory plans
with minimal clutter. Perhaps a display
of leather bound books paired with small
greenery, and a small picture on an easel.

Florida Coast," said Al Hanser, CEO
of the Trust Company. "It was wonderful
to see over 200 people come to honor
her and grace us with their presence. It
was an event to remember. Myra is truly
an island treasure."
The exhibit spanned the top floor of
the library and featured Roberts' most
recent work, including her new Sanibel
& Captiva series. Roberts spent much of
2009 researching the historical buildings
and personalities of the islands. Her new
paintings bring to life, in her trademark
1920s and 1930s vintage-style, famous
figures such as Anne Morrow Lindbergh,
J.N. "Ding" Darling, and Thomas Edison.
Roberts also put on canvas histori-
cal edifices such as Tween Waters Inn,
Casa Ybel Resort and Island Inn; local
non-profits such as the Bailey-Matthews
Shell Museum, CROW and SCCF; and
restaurants such as Traders, Doc Ford's,
and Gramma Dot's.
"It was a truly magical night for me,"
said Roberts. "I greatly appreciate the
generosity and kindness of Al Hanser,
Terry Igo, Linda Mason and the rest of
the Sanibel-Captiva Trust Company, who
created such a wonderful event to launch
my new collection of paintings. I also
want to thank Margaret Mohundro and
the Sanibel Public Library staff."
The evening formally kicked off the
publication of her new book, Myra
Roberts: Retro Images From The
Florida Coast, written by Brian Johnson.
The limited edition hard cover, restricted
to 1,000 copies signed by Roberts, will
be available in local stores in the middle
of January. The book contains 71 color
plates of her oil paintings.
The Trust Company presented guests
with newly released copies of the book as
a gift. "It's a fabulous book," said Hanser.
"It really showcases Myra's talent."
"The new book is a real treasure for
people who are familiar with the wildlife,
historic characters and popular landmarks
on our islands," said John Schubert, a
member of the Trust Company's board of
directors. "Myra is not only a wonderful
artist and asset to our community, she is
a generous philanthropist in supporting
many island organizations. "

Will Power
No Estate Tax This Year
- Or Maybe There Will Be
Sby Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills,
Trusts & Estates Attorney, CPA


adison, my
youngest
lI daughter,
asked me if she
could go over to a
friend's house. I told
her that she could
only to be vetoed
by Patti. "She didn't
clean up her room
like I asked her to," Patti said. "And I
don't think that she should be able to
go over to her friend's house when she
didn't listen and do what she was sup-
posed to."
This, of course, was met with cries
of derision and anguish that one might
expect from a much more traumatic


event. "But Dad said I could go!" Madi
protested through tears. "Dad! ...you said
it was okay!" Madi even threatened the
"I'll hold my breath" routine.
"Go ahead. Hold your breath," I said.
"When I said it was okay I didn't know
that mom told you to clean up your room
and that you didn't do it," I explained.
"So I change my decision. No going to
your friend's house."
Anyone who has children has been
through a similar conversation. We all
make decisions and then have to renege
on them. Usually though, to change
one's mind one needs some sort of justi-
fication. The justification might be caused
by another's actions or failure to act (as
in the case with Madi) or for changes in
circumstances.
This apparently isn't the case when
we are historically dealing with the United
States Congress, the President and the
tax law. Allow me to explain.
Under the tax law signed into law by
President Bush back in 2001, the estate
tax was scheduled to expire in 2010,
only to be revived in 2011 with a much
smaller estate tax exemption ($1 million).
Congress was going to act to "bridge"
2010 by passing a law that would retain
the 2009 tax exemption ($3.5 million
per person) into 2010 as a "stop gap"
measure. The intent was for Congress to
reexamine the estate and gift tax system


and come up with something more per-
manent.
Well, along came the great
ObamaCare debate. Estate tax reform
got shoved to the back burner. So what
do we have now? We have a system
where there is no federal estate tax for
this year. Or do we?
Like the parent that changes his mind
(whether or not for good reason) the
Congress could, conceivably, retroactively
pass legislation that imposes an estate tax
for those decedent's dying after January
1, 2010.
Some have made the argument that
in so doing, Congress would be acting
unconstitutionally. This is known as a
"due process" argument. In other words,
no one had proper notice or even the
ability to alter one's conduct before the
law changes. Therefore any such change
shouldn't be applied retroactively.
You might suggest that when taxing
the value of an estate, that value exists
whether the estate is taxable or not,
and therefore due process shouldn't be
considered. Aside from the concept of
due process being a cornerstone of our
constitution, I would counter that there is
a lot even a large estate could do to mini-
mize taxes. But if there is currently no tax
imposed, then reasonable people could
therefore assume that they wouldn't be
affected and would do nothing. On the
other hand, if they knew that a retroac-
tive law might be passed, they might act.
That's where due process comes in rela-
tion to estate tax planning.
Unfortunately, those knowledgeable
in the law suggest that the unconstitu-
tionality challenge to a retroactive tax law
change would not hold water. They point
to another United States Supreme Court


case decided in 1994 on a similar issue,
United States v. Carlton.
In a nutshell, that case involved the
disallowance of an estate tax deduction
that was legal in 1986 when the events
causing the deduction occurred, but by
the time the estate tax return was filed in
1987 the deduction was no longer legal.
Congress and the President passed had
passed a law that denied the deduction in
the interim.
The taxpayers argued that they should
get the deduction because the law indicat-
ed that the deduction was legal and prop-
er. Only later was another law enacted
that resulted in no deduction. The United
States Supreme Court in essence said
that the Congress and the President could
take away tax deductions retroactively -
and that we all had to abide by it whether
or not we could foresee in our crystal ball
what future tax law would look like.
In other words, our President and
Congress can tell us that we can't go to
our friend's house, even if they earlier
said we could. Worse yet, we cleaned
our rooms. In Carlton the taxpayers did
nothing wrong other than reporting a
deduction that was legal when the events
leading to it occurred. There doesn't
appear to be any reason justifying the
retroactive imposition of tax other than
"the United States government needs the
money," which, incidentally was a reason
cited in the text of the opinion justifying
why Congress and the President could do
such a thing.
So for those of you who believe
that there will be no federal estate tax
imposed on decedent's estates who die
this year, don't hold your breath.

Academy at Shell Point.
The event will take place
on Wednesday, January 20
from 10 until 11:30 a.m. in
the Grand Cypress Room
located in The Woodlands
at Shell Point Retirement
Community.
The scheduled speak-
ers are Barbara Linstrom,

and news new media with
WGCU Public Media, and
David Plazas, community
conversation editor with The Barbara Linstrom David Plazas
News-Press.
"Both The News-Press and WGCU have longstanding histories in Southwest
Florida and have weathered many storms," said Teri Kollath, manager of academy and
volunteer services. "This presentation will allow attendees the chance to take a glimpse
into the daily activities that have helped both organizations strive for so long in the
varying economies."
This presentation will explain how a 25-year-old award-winning public media station
and an award winning newspaper that has also survived and thrived for 125 years, are
dealing with the multiple challenges of a recession and the rise of Internet news. These
presenters are knowledgeable and engaging and both will share real innovations that
each organization has put into effect. Attendees will hear how important the public's
role is in the supporting the community's local media.
This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited and a ticket will be

Mom And Me


by Lizzie and Pryce
Sizzie 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,
I have been a widow for over 40
years, a widow longer than I was married
My friends are always asking me when
am I going to give up my apartment and
go to a retirement living complex. I am
happy living alone; I drive my own car,
walk a mile each day and play bridge at
least three times a week.
I am not ready to go and live around
all those old people. I know I am 92
years old because my one knee tells me
so. But, I am going to have that replaced
in three weeks and when it heals I will be
able to walk two miles each day.
Why do others go into all of these
places?

Dear Agnes,
I wish I could meet you! You are an
inspiration and younger people should
listen to your philosophy of life.
Some people find aging to be a very
difficult adventure and depend on others
to meet their needs. I wish there were
more people like you!

Dear Agnes,
Hats off to you! Living as you want
without caving in to the pressures of soci-
ety that if you are of a certain age you
should do or not do certain things or live
in a certain place... blah, blah, blah. Life
is meant to be lived... continue living and
setting a wonderful example for younger

Florida Children's Hospital Cancer
Fund, will celebrate its 15th
anniversary on January 31 from noon
to 3:30 p.m. at the Miromar Design
Center, 10800 Corkscrew Road, Estero.
The public is invited to join the
Haskells and others at the celebration. In
an event themed after Barbara Haskell's
favorite song, Somewhere Over the
Rainbow, attendees are invited to toast
the organization's mission at a cham-
pagne brunch, hear performances by
local youth artists, and bid on a wide col-

continue to paint the rainbow for cancer-
stricken children.
Founded by Fort Myers residents
Frank and Betty Haskell to honor their
daughter, Barbara, who died of breast
cancer in 1995, the organization has
raised more than $8.7 million since its
inception. This money has helped build
and equip a pediatric hematology and
oncology center and other facilities pro-
viding therapy and support to children
battling these diseases in our community.
The fund also helps cover some treat-
ment expenses for uninsured or underin-
sured patients.
"Today, the Barbara's Friends Pediatric
Hematology & Oncology Center treats
more than 100 children each week and
averages one new patient each week,"
Haskell said. "No child is ever turned

Greetings and
Happy New
Year!
As we enter
2010, we are most
likely either setting
goals for the year
.or have already set
goals. Often we set
common goals to
lose weight, stop
smoking, be a better spouse, partner,
save money and exercise more. Writing
your goals down, whatever they may be.
Including action steps to attaining those
goals might make it seem more realistic.
Keep these steps attainable so you don't
set yourself up to fail.
I have written a few goals that I would
like to share with you and perhaps by
sharing them, I can better follow through
to attain them:
1. Live in the Present Moment. Yes, it
is quite the challenge, but I find if I am

The Sanibel Beet
The Temperature Is Cold,
But It Is Hot At The Market
by Jean Baer and Betsy Ventura
Don't let the cool weather keep you from the Sanibel Island Farmers Market,
because each Sunday it just keeps getting hotter and hotter. A few blazing
highlights to warm you up include:
The French Artisan has a terrific bisque made from our local waters; gulf shrimp,
blue crab from Charlotte Harbor and locally harvested clams. These seafoods added
with a variety of spices taste so very similar to the style of bisque from the North of
France, home to Thierry Devisse, owner of The French Artisan.
Big C's Salsa is the place to shop for tortilla chips and Olga's new hot sauce
made from jalapefios, habaneros, serranos, onions, stewed tomatoes, and spices, all of
which she purchases from her market neighbor, Farmer Mike.
Hungarian goulash was this week's special from Elfie, made from pork, beef, red
and green peppers, potatoes, pasta, and spices. We were lucky enough to try some on

Better Sleep
Insomnia affects at least a third of
American adults, according to the
National Sleep Foundation. For mil-
lions, it is a chronic problem. Fatigue
affects memory, so sleep is an impor-
tant component of brain health.
The connection between sleep and
memory and tips for sleeping better
are the subject of a 90-minute educa-
tional workshop on Sanibel on Tuesday,
January 19, sponsored by LEAF Ltd., a
private foundation devoted to intellectual
wellness and brain fitness. The class costs
$15 and begins at 10:30 a.m. at The
Community House, 2173 Periwinkle
Way. Pre-registration is not required. For
more information, call Penny at 482-
0356.0

Sunday and yum, yum! It was so good
and had just the right amount of spice to
warm us up.
For those wanting a quick hot snack,
stop by the Magic Cauldron for some
kettle corn, Nuts R Us for some hot
boiled peanuts, or a steaming latte from
On A Roll.
So, don't let the weather get you
down and just come on down to the mar-
ket. See you Sunday from 8 a.m. to 1
p.m. at Tahitian Gardens.

From page 60
Dr. Clancy
constantly out in the future, I get too
overwhelmed and when I stay present,
I feel a much better sense of calm and
peace. When I catch myself not in the
moment, I will stop, breathe and hit the
delete button.
2. Work on Being More Grateful for
What I Have. It is far too easy to whine
about all we don't have instead of being
grateful for what we have. Every day,
stop and be grateful for the everyday
gifts.
3. Be Involved in Health and Wellness
for Mind, Body and Spiritual Health.
This includes balancing physical exercise,
meditation practice, and reading material
that helps me continue to learn and raise
my consciousness.
4. Healthy Cooking and Eating
Practices. It is just as easy to cook and
eat healthy as it is not to. No excuses.
We all know that we feel better when we
are at an optimal weight and we eat what
we know is best for us. Moderate and
don't deprive as it leads to binging.
5. Connect with Those I Care About.
Spend quality time with friends, family
and new friends. Take some opportunity
to volunteer and do something good for
our troops.
6. Keep Fun on the List. Do some-
thing fun and laugh daily. It is easy to
get so serious and bogged down with the
everyday stuff. Do what you love and love
what you do.

Free Leg Vein

Screening At
Lee Memorial
nTuesday, January, 26, Lee
Memorial Hospital will take part
in the country's largest, most
comprehensive national screening pro-
gram for venous disease. Sponsored
by the American Venous Forum, the
screening is an early detection program
dedicated to improved vascular health.
The hospital will conduct free, com-
prehensive vein screenings for Lee
County residents.
While many people are aware of the
severity of heart disease, few people
know about the seriousness of major
venous diseases, including the following:
Diseases of the leg veins kill and
cripple thousands every year in America.
Dangerous blood clots form in
the leg veins of more than 2.5 million
Americans each year. These blood clots
can break loose and travel to the lungs,
killing up to 200,000 people.
Ten to 35 percent of adults have leg
veins that do not work properly.
Half a million Americans have ulcers
in their legs caused by diseased veins.
Simple, non-invasive tests are widely
available to detect these diseases. The
American Venous Forum has created a
screening program to educate the pub-
lic about venous health care problems,
risk factors, prevention and treatment
options.
Lee Memorial Hospital is one of more
than 100 health care facilities that will
participate in this program.
The screening is non-invasive, pain-
less and risk-free. It will include a medical
questionnaire, a professional examination
of the legs and an ultrasound scan of the
leg veins. Educational materials on venous
diseases, prevention and treatment will
be distributed to participants at the time


of the screening. Each participant will
receive a report card to share with his or
her personal physician.
For more information about venous
disease, tests and treatments, call 336-
6948 or 332-6426.4

Help Refuge
Judy Michie of Cottages to Castles of
Sanibel & Captiva, sees the program as
a win-win for everybody."
"It gives a bit of extra nationwide cov-
erage to 'Ding' Darling because our visi-
tors come from all over the U.S. and the
world," she said.
Dawn Ramsey, who was one of the
first to enroll Tarpon Tale Inn in the
program, explains her reasoning for
jumping aboard: "It's obvious to us how
important the refuge is to our business.
We're happy to give back, and so are our
guests."
"I don't know why anybody wouldn't
want to do it," said Kathy Lewis with
Periwinkle Cottages.

Your Brain
n Wednesday, January 20,
from 1:30 to 3 p.m., the public

your brain some exercise. Trained staff

this highly entertaining experience. No
computer experience is necessary. The
cost is $10. The Community House
is at 2173 Periwinkle Way. For more

64 ISLAND SUN -JANUARY 15, 2010


aelle Iuvf 40 oIY
M y name is Belle. I am two years
old and was found by a very nice
lady in Lehigh. In fact, I thought
she was so nice I jumped right into her
car. She saved me from possibly being Mila ID# 454927
run over or starving since I was really lost.
Now I just need a new home. I am very
friendly and playful. After all, I am a hound dog and we make great family pets. I'd
love to jump in your car and go home with you! My adoption fee is only $25 during
January's adoption special celebrating Elvis Presley's birthday (all hound dogs and
hound mixes are $50 off the regular adoption fee).


I'm Mila and although I'm a very young girl myself, I was found and brought to the
shelter with my six babies. We were all fostered until my babies were old enough to be
adopted. Now that they have found homes I would like one too. My foster mom says
I'm really a sweet, quiet, couch potato. I'd love to cuddle with you while we watch TV
whether it's HGTV, ESPN, or the Food Network. I can be very flexible. My adoption
fee is $50.
During January Animal Services is celebrating Elvis Presley's birthday by offering a
$50 discount off the regular adoption fee for all hound dogs and hound mixes. With
the discount, puppies will be just $45, adult dogs $25, and senior dogs (six years and
older) will be free. There are endless varieties among the hound breeds which include
everything from beagles, bassets, greyhounds, bloodhounds, coonhounds, foxhounds,
and dachshunds to afghans, basenjis, borzois, and elkhounds. Among the hounds you
will find dogs that are clever, lively, and loyal, making them very popular family pets.
They are an excellent choice for children and bond with the whole family, including
other pets.
For information about this week's pets call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to
Animal Services' Web site at www.LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to the ani-
mal's ID number. The Web site updates every hour so you will be able to see if these
or any other pets are still available.
The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through
Saturday. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee
County Sheriff's Office, off Six Mile Cypress Parkway.
All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies vac-
cination and county license if three months or older, flea treatment, worming, heart-
worm test for dogs six months and over, feline AIDS and leukemia test for cats, train-
ing DVD, 10-day health guarantee and a bag of Science Diet pet food.
The adoption package is valued at $500.0

MISC FOR SAl F


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.
