Dancing With The
Islands' Stars Wows Sanibel

















Liddy Johnson and Brad MacDonald Billy Kirkland and Suzanna Vogel

by Brian Johnson
ancing with the Islands' Stars packed The Community House with a sold-out
audience this past Saturday night in one of the most innovative and best pro-
duced fundraisers ever held on the islands.
"I moved to Sanibel in 1982 and I've never seen anything like it," said Craig Albert,
president of Sanibel Captiva Community Bank and one of the celebrity dancers. "It
was the wildest thing I've ever been a part of."
As of press time, the event had raised over $75,000 for The Community House.
The funds will used to launch the remodeling of the historic building.
Billy Kirkland, owner of Billy's Bikes, won first place based on the combination of
scores by the judges and his personal fundraising total in excess of $19,000. Kirkland Brad MacDonald and Karen Bell photos by Rusty Farst

Sanibel's Only Crocodile
Is Found Dead
by Anne Mitchell
anibel's rare and famous crocodile the northernmost of its species has died.
The female croc, who was a sensation every time she showed up in the JN
"Ding" Darling Wildlife Refuge, was found dead Tuesday following a prolonged
period of extreme cold.
For many years, visitors from around the world would frequently head to the refuge
to see if she was basking in the sun along Wildlife Drive, often with her mouth wide
open to cool off.
Her long snout and protruding teeth distinguished her from Sanibel's alligators.
The American crocodile, a rarity north of the Florida Keys, is an endangered species.
For several years she laid eggs on Wild Lime Drive on Sanibel's west end and would
rest under Janie Howland's piling home. Howland "adopted" the crocodile, which
favored her secluded driveway until a few years ago when she nested in Gulf Shores and
other places.
Howland said Tuesday that she was saddened by the croc's demise.
"She was my girl," said Howland, who recalled one summer night setting her alarm
clock for three-hour intervals to check whether the croc's eggs had hatched and to see
her carry the young to the water behind her home.

The crocodile was about 11 feet long

Sanibel Historical Museum And Village
Docent Profile:
Betsy Cox
by Ray Buck
Welcoming folks from over-
seas, from other parts of the
Americas, and from Sanibel and
Captiva into Sanibel's past always has
been a pleasure part of the docent expe-
rience at the Sanibel Historical Museum
and Village.
"I enjoy greeting the visitors when they
first arrive," Docent Betsy Cox says, "and
showing them the Rutland House because
it was the first house that started the
museum in 1984. It is such a well built
dwelling of cracker architecture which I
knew nothing about before becoming a
docent.
Now, Cox feels confident sharing
her extensive knowledge of that and the
Calusa Indians as long as she senses the
guests are interested. "I also knew noth-
ing about the Calusa. Many visitors have
never heard of them and are fascinated
by the descriptions of the 40-foot shell
mounds they built to live on."
"Except for the 11-year-old boy," she
is quick to add, "who was dragged to the
museum on a sunny day to do a school
report. Understandable. Every other
visitor I chatted with enjoyed the tours
and particularly the atmosphere of the
museum.

Sanibel and its histori-
cal museum are a long way
from the island of Guernsey
in the English Channel
where she lived for 20
years after growing up in
Washington, D.C., higher
education at the University
of Wisconsin, and marriage
to an Englishman.
"Not many of my friends
knew anything about
Guernsey until the new best
selling book The Guernsey
Literary Potato Peel
Society was published," Cox
said.
"My husband and I found
Sanibel first by luck in 1985.
After five years of vacation
on the island, we loved it
so much we retired here,"
she said. "My husband
was an avid fisherman and
loved having a boat in the
backyard on a canal. I don't
remember seeing anything
like this in England."
Betsy's husband passed
away 11 years ago. "I can Betsy Cox
think of no nicer place
to live on my own than
Sanibel," she said. "I spend
four months in Center Harbor, New
Hampshire during the summer. I enjoy
my golf and bridge and all my friends
here."

IL


Planning Board
Holds Firm To
Sign Ordinance
by Anne Mitchell
bid by CVS drug store to have a
second business sign was unsuc-
cessful Tuesday when the Sanibel
Planning Commission unanimously
denied the request.
The commissioners heard that JEC
Funding Inc., of Woonsocket, Rhode
Island, which operates CVS, was slapped
with a code violation last summer for
attaching a sign to the building in addi-
tion to the ground sign at the driveway
on Palm Ridge Road. The company
has since paid the $472 fine that was
levied at the violation hearing, said Terri
Cummins, code enforcement officer.
City codes stipulate that single unit
buildings are entitled to just one sign.
Cummins provided minutes from a 1983
Sanibel City Council meeting when the
then tenant of the building, Eckerd Drugs,
made a similar application and was
turned down.
The applicant, represented by Gary
Hicks of International Sign and Design
Company, argued that because of the
road and driveway configuration and the
thick vegetation, it's hard for drivers to
see CVS until they are upon it or almost
past it.
Planning Commissioner Paul Reynolds
remarked that a wall sign would not help
the situation. "The only way you would
notice it is if you were already in the
driveway," he said.
Said Commissioner Tom Krekel, "If
we allowed all businesses on the island
to increase signage, total profitability (of
businesses) would decline. The fact we
have small signs... is the unique appeal to
people who come here. Property values
on the island would decrease."

Local Artists
To Paint The
Historical Village
painting the Village will be the
goal of artists from the Sanibel-
Captiva Art League as they gather
on Wednesday during the month
of February at the Sanibel Historical
Museum and Village.
Artist Neil Glaser heads up the "artist
in residence" paint-outs and called it an
opportunity visitors to observe the cre-
ative processes as they unfold.
The seven buildings, from the 1880s
through the 1940s, are popular subjects
of artists on the islands, and the village
has become a favorite place to paint.
Participating artists will interact with visi-
tors and offer their artwork for sale.
The Sanibel Historical Museum and
Village is a non-profit organization dedi-
cated to preserving and sharing Sanibel's
history. The Village is located at 950

Lions Clubs Join
Forces To Help
Out In Haiti
ions Club International and Lions
Club International Foundation
(LCIF) are working together to
provide relief and hope for the people
of Haiti. Following the devastating
earthquakes, Lions around the world
have responded generously and quickly
to the Lions' fund. Lions in China have
given $20,000: Lions from Ontario
have established a medical clinic in Haiti
and so far treated 600 people: Lions in
Sweden are sending large tents to house
the homeless.
The Lions Club of Sanibel and Captiva
has donated $2,000 from cash raised
by members to the Haitian disaster fund.
"We wanted to move quickly to help the
people of Haiti recover from this appall-
ing disaster," said Lions President Tom
Rothman. "We have an emergency fund,
raised by members, for just such events
and our board decided to make an imme-
diate grant."
Anyone can donate to the Lions Club
Hope for Haiti Fund. One hundred per-
cent of every donation will go directly to
Haiti as Lions administrative costs are
paid by interest earned on past invest-
ments.
Donations can be made using any one
of three options:
Donate online at www.lcif.org/


donate. Select Disaster and include "LCIF
Haiti Earthquake Relief" in the comments
section.
Make a credit card donation with a
MasterCard, Visa or American Express.
Fax the following information to LCIF:
name, address, phone number, credit
card type, credit card number, expiration
date, and amount of the donation. If you
are a Lions member, provide your club's
information. LCIF's fax number is 630-
571-5735.
Mail a check to LCIF. Make the
check payable to Lions Club International
Foundation, noting LCIF Haiti

Fire District, Power
Squadron Mission
recently the Sanibel Fire and
Rescue District and the Sanibel
Captiva Sail and Power Squadron
combined forces to provide NOAA a
report of a possible submerged wreck
near the Miserable Mile in San Carlos
Bay.
Jim Strothers, co-op chart chair-
man for the squadron, and Tim Barrett,
training officer for the Sanibel Fire and
Rescue District, planned a trip to the site
using Sanibel's Fire and Rescue boat. The
boat is equipped with a sonar unit as well
as an underwater camera, which would


enable the team to investigate the loca-
tion of the reported wreck using various
underwater observation techniques. This
investigation would allow members of
the fire department to practice using this
equipment to simulate a real emergency.
On December 28, Fire Captain Tom
Tracy, EMT/Firefighter Brain Howell
and Jim Strothers launched the boat with
Firefighter/Paramedic Rob Doerr operat-
ing the vessel. The coordinates of the site
were entered into the vessel's GPS unit
to provide navigation to the exact spot
indicated on the chart and the team pro-
ceeded to the reported site.
Upon arrival at the area of the report-
ed wreck there was no visual sign of any
wreckage. A detailed search pattern was
performed over the entire area using
both visual observations and sonar. The
sonar did not detect any abnormal feature
of the bottom that would indicate a wreck
or other obstruction. Based upon this
information the crew determined it did
not warrant the deployment of the under-
water camera for this mission.
Satisfied that the reported wreck is
no longer present the crew returned to


ISLAND SUN JANUARY 29, 2010 7
the dock completing the assignment.
Strothers took the information obtained
and filed the necessary report with
NOAA.
This mission provided training for the
fire department personnel as well as pro-
viding a community service in keeping the
local nautical charts updated.,

A Green Evening
For The Lions Club
S abrina Lartz, research assistant at
the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation (SCCF) and Sarah
Ashton, chair of the Sanibel Alliance
for Renewable Resources (SARR) and
realtor with Royal Shell Preferred
Properties, both presented to the
Sanibel-Captiva Lions club last week.
Lartz spoke about the renewing of
the oyster beds in a bayou off Pine Island
Sound. She explained that oysters, as
well as being an important food source
for many hundreds of years, are a key
factor in keeping sea water clean. Each
oyster can filter up to 50 gallons of water
a day, removing debris, sediment and
other substances. They can be a crucial
factor in keeping our local waters really
healthy. Oysters need a hard surface to
bind to and the work being done by Lartz
and SCCF involves placing hard shell in
the bay to serve as habitat for the oysters.
Ashton presented the results of some
recent research to the club. The pre-
sentation, entitled Enhancing the Green
Appeal of Your Home, explained the fea-
tures that buyers want and are prepared
to pay for, but that sellers are not provid-
ing them as frequently as they might.
In July and August, Ashton conducted
a survey that looked at features such as
EnergyStar appliances, low-flow plumb-


ing, solar hot water heating and native
plantings.
"The results are extremely useful to
home owners, all of whom are potential
sellers at some stage" said Ashton. She
added, "Moreover, homeowners can
have a major impact on their utility bills
by making the sort of changes that the
research shows are highly desirable, as
well as making an important contribution
to keeping our island green." Ashton
also explained that the non-profit Sanibel
Alliance for Renewable Resources was
highlighting the value of solar power for
heating hot water. Not only does this
conserve energy, and reduce the use of
fossil fuels, but it also can generate major
savings for households.
"They were very interesting presenta-
tions," said Tom Rothman, Lions Club
president. "Our members enjoyed hearing
about the work being done on Sanibel to
preserve our environment for both the
short and the long term."
More information about SARR and
Ashton's survey is available from: www.
sanibelenergy.com and sarah@sarahash-
ton.biz.
Founded in 1917, Lions Clubs

CARD OF THANKS
On behalf of CROW's board
of directors, staff, volunteers,
and especially on behalf of
our patients, I would like to thank
the Companies of Royal Shell (Royal
Shell Vacations, Royal Shell Preferred
Properties and Royal Shell Property
Management) for their generosity.
Their sponsorship of the official
debut for Visions of Beauty-Fort Myers,
Sanibel & Beyond, the newest in a series
of art books by Alan S. Maltz, official
wildlife photographer of Florida, was a
wonderful opportunity for everyone to
understand and appreciate our remark-
able wildlife through the lens of a true
talent.
We would also like to thank Alan
for his generosity in donating so many
unique and beautiful pieces of his work
that were sold at auction with 100 per-
cent of the proceeds going to CROW. We
look forward to working with Alan again
in the future in joint pursuit of his passion
for wildlife and our mission to save their
lives through care and education.
Thank you as well to everyone at RLR
Investments, Ellington's, the Sanibel-
Captiva Chamber of Commerce, and
everyone who attended the event. All
of us at CROW are deeply honored and
extremely proud to be part of such a car-
ing community.

gram on the topic Five Wishes/
End of Life Planning, to be held
Tuesday, February 9 from 1 to 2:30
p.m. at the Sanibel Congregational
United Church of Christ, 2050
Periwinkle Way.
Five Wishes is an easy to use legal

that lets adults of all ages plan how they
want to be cared for in case they become
seriously ill. It is America's most popular
living will with more than 14 million cop-


ies in circulation. It is a legal document in
42 states, including Florida.
Five Wishes helps you express how
you want to be treated if you are seriously
ill and unable to speak for yourself. It is
unique among all other living will and
health agent forms because it speaks to a
person's every need: medical, personal,
emotional and spiritual. Five Wishes also
helps structure discussions with your fam-
ily and physician.
The Five Wishes addressed in this
document are:
Wish 1: The Person I Want to Make
Health Care Decisions for Me When I
Can't
Wish 2: The Kind of Medical
Treatment I Want or Don't Want
Wish 3: How Comfortable I Want to Be
Wish 4: How I Want People to Treat Me
Wish 5: What I Want My Loved Ones

Christian
Women's
Connection
Betty Huizenga, author of Apples of
Gold (applesofgold.org), will be the
featured speaker for the Sanibel-
Captiva Christian Women's Connection
dinner at The Dunes Golf and Tennis
Club on February 11. The evening begins
at 5:30 p.m. and dinner is included with
the $18 cost.
The primary purpose of Apples of
Gold is for older women to nurture
younger women in the Word of God, the
Bible and to encourage them to obey that
word. The six lessons come from Titus
2:3-5 which instructs the older women
to teach the younger women life lessons
including kindness, loving your husband,
loving your children, submission, purity
and hospitality.
This ministry teaches and pampers
young women as, together we learn
about cooking and hospitality, about what
God's word teaches us as women, wives
and mothers, and encourages friend-
ship and fellowship among women. The
younger women are served with joy,
which in turn teaches them to serve oth-
ers.
Huizenga has also written Gifts of
Gold, a handbook for mentors and
a compliment to Apples of Gold;
Appleseeds, a mentoring book for pre-
teens; and Apple of His Eye, a how-to
guide for daily, personal worship and
prayer. The Apples of Gold cookbook
is a compilation of recipes from many of
our classes.
Apples of Gold is translated into
Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese; Italian
and Chinese are in process. Each month
hundreds of Apples of Gold classes for
women are being held around the coun-
try and in many parts of the world.
Huizenga and her husband Lee are
residents of Sanibel and spend summers
in Holland, Michigan. They have four
children and eight grandchildren.
Huizenga enjoys playing the piano and
organ. She also enjoys knitting, cooking,
reading, boating and golf, especially golf.
She has been a guest on Focus on
the Family with Dr. James Dobson and
has been a conference speaker for Focus
events. Other radio broadcasts include:
Renewing the Heart with Janet Parshal,
Midday Connection with Anita Lustria
on Moody radio. She has recorded four
half-hour programs with Nancy Leigh De
Moss for Revive Our Hearts. A one-hour
Apples of Gold television program was
produced for TCT Christian television.
Huizenga's current writing proj-
ects include: Purposeful Hospitality
and Remarkable, the story about her
son Mark who was born with Down
Syndrome.
All are invited but reservations are
required. Call 481-1957. The program
is sponsored by the Sanibel-Captiva
Christian Women's Connection, and
Stonecroft Ministries.0

Safe Boating At School


Back row: Emily Minoui, Tess Nader, Scarlet Price, Peggy Drennan and Breanna Anderson.
Middle row: Marti Squitieri, Nicolas Smith, Erik Howell, Mariela Portilla, Jordan Olson,
Grace Ann Paul and Leah Bordiuk; kneeling: Michael Stufano, Joey Aulino, Alexandra
Cloutier, Lauren Lockard and Sophie Gruss.

Each year the Sanibel-Captiva Sail & Power Squadron members conduct a
nine-week Safe Boating class for The Sanibel School 6th graders. The objec-
tives of the Safe Boating Class are to teach students safe boating habits, to
educate them about the Florida boating laws, and to train them in making emer-
gency calls to the United States Coast Guard.


Nicolas Smith, Michael Stufano, Scarlet Price, and Mariela Fortilla being timed by Dick
Squitieri to see how long it takes to don and fasten a preserver. Then, think of emergen-
cies where there is not much time. Even worse, try to don a preserver, if still alert, in the
water.

Marti Squitieri, Power Squadron member, and Mrs. Peggy Drennan, Sanibel School
middle school teacher combined efforts to coordinate the teaching of a variety of top-
ics including Aids to Navigation, Knot Tying, Rules of the Road, Safety Devices, PFDs,
using a VHF Radio, and using a Global Positioning System.
During class the students are grouped by "boat crews" and earn points through a
variety of activities and quizzes. Class drills include finding and putting on life jackets
in a timely manner and reporting an emergency situation to the United States Coast
Guard.
The winning 6th grade crews earn a ride on the Sanibel Fire Department boat.
Squitieri said, "Learning and practicing safe boating habits is similar to buckling your
seatbelt when riding in a car. It saves lives."
For responsible boating, sign up for the next public boating course (all ages). Dates
are Saturdays, February 6 and 13 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Sanibel Public
Library. To register or for more information contact Jeanne at 395-3299.0

Following Fish Kill;
Plenty Of Trout
Remain
by Capt. Matt
Mitchell
he extent of
Sthe cold water
fish kill has
been much worse
than expected,
with thousands of
dead fish floating in
canals and all over
the bay this past
week. I do not ever
remember seeing
so many large snook dead from any one
single event. The water temperature
in the canal I fish from one day was a
chilly 43 degrees, which is way too cold
for some of our subtropical fish to live
through.
Talk about depressing. One deep
water mangrove canal I fish during the
winter months was lined with hundreds
of floating dead snook of 30 inches and
larger. Snook take years to grow to that
size so it could take a few years for our
snook fishery to bounce back to what it
just was just a month ago. Nature works
in cycles and this kind of kill-off has hap-
pened before and will happen again. For
whatever reason this was the year to thin
out the snook population and only the
strongest survived.
The Florida Wildlife Commission did
take emergency action on January 15 by
closing spring season on snook which is
now not planned to open until at least
September 1. This should help out the
snook and should buy some more time
for research and to give scientists a better
idea of the damage done to the stock. If
needed the FWC could close snook sea-
son for even longer. Whatever it takes to
bring back the numbers of this premier
gamefish should be done in my opinion.
As most people have known for a long
time, snook are a much more valuable
resource than just a food fish.
Sea trout fishing has really picked
up this week with lots of slot-sized fish
caught all over the sound. Working edges
and drop-offs of deeper channels that run
through or up to grass flats has been the
pattern to get on these fish. One of my
favorite winter time trout channels is the
deep channel that runs on the east side of
Chino Island. Either drift fishing or sitting
on the anchor have both been productive
ways to fish it.
When drift fishing I have been using
soft plastic shrimp on a 1/4 oz. or big-
ger jig head depending on the speed of
the tide. The faster the tide the larger
the jig head you will need to bounce the
bottom. When anchored, live handpicked
shrimp fished on the bottom have worked
best. The trout have been hanging near
or close to the bottom. There have been
some real big ones in the mix with a
26-inch "gator" being the trout of the
week on my boat.
The traditional way of drift fishing
trout on the flats using a live shrimp
under a popping cork has also been a
good way to go. Generally live shrimp


fished on the flats get stolen quickly
by pinfish and catfish but with most of
the bait stealers killed off by the cold all
you're going to catch is trout and ladyfish.
For kids and not-so-experienced anglers
this is easy fishing with hits almost every
cast once you find the trout.
The Cajun Thunder popping cork rigs,
which came out the last few years, are
also an awesome method for catching
trout. The rig consists of a popping cork
with a soft plastic shrimp/Berkley Gulp
shrimp rigged about three feet under it
on a jig head. This rig produces almost as
many fish as the traditional live shrimp/
popping cork rig and you don't go
through a ton of live bait. Loudly popping
the bobber draws the trout in close.
Trout are without a doubt one of the
more angler-friendly fish and popular
gamefish in the state of Florida. They can
be targeted year-round but winter time
fishing produces some of the biggest ones
of the year. Cold clear water and bright
sunny skies make for an ideal time to
trout fish.
Another joy of the seatrout is that
they can be caught by fishing so many
different ways from top water to live
bait and just about any way in between.
What trout lack in fight they make up for
in sheer numbers and they have a very
aggressive strike. They are a great species
for learning how to fish with artificial baits
or even a fly rod. Soft plastics are at the
top of the list for me when I target trout.
Even if you have never fished soft plastic

CROW Case Of The Week: White Ibis
Sby Brian Johnson
O n January 11 Coby Pawlowski, an 8th grader at
Lexington Middle School, came across a white ibis in
trouble in the yard of his San Carlos Park home in Fort
Myers.
"He acted like he was drunk," said Coby. "He couldn't walk
or fly and was trying to get through a fence."
Coby scooped him up and drove to CROW with his mother,
.. Cathy. The bird was quiet on the trip to Sanibel, and they were
Happy to transport him to the clinic, which undoubtedly saved his
life. "It was pretty cool," said Coby. "I learned a lot, it was a neat
experience."
"It was an unusual case," said Dr. Amber McNamara. "We don't get many ibis, but
the ones that do arrive are most often victims of vehicle collisions or entanglement in
fishing line and fishing hooks. We were not sure what happened to this particular bird,
probably some type of trauma as he had a little bit of dried blood on his right shoul-
der. "
The bird stumbled as staff examined him. He seemed to suffer from ataxia, defined
by Wikipedia as a "non-specific clinical manifestation implying dysfunction of parts of
the nervous system that coordinate
movement, such as the cerebellum." In
other words, he may have banged his
head and was feeling dizzy.
"He was even more wobbly the
next day, often falling over," said Dr. -
Amber.
Staff gave him pain medication,
vitamins, and the herbs Body Sore and
St. John's Wort. Over the next couple
of days they offered him an assortment
of kitten chow, scrambled eggs, super ........
worms, crickets and fish. "He nibbled "'
here and there," said Dr. Amber.
On Day 4 she put him a tub with p
two inches of water. "He seemed to ..1
enjoy his time in the bathtub, he may White ibis being given pain medication and
have felt more at home," she said. vitamins


ISLAND SUN JANUARY 29, 2010 25
As he was not eating sufficient amounts
on his own, staff began tubing him a fish
slurry along with his medications.
It concerned Dr. Amber that on Day 8
the ibis was "still quite wobbly." She decided
to turn to a potent tool in her medical kit:
the Chinese herb Stasis in the Mansion of
the Mind. "There was stagnant Qi in his
brain, and this herb helps to move the stag-
nation and restore balance" said Dr. Amber.
Over the next few days the bird finally
emerged from his dazed condition. He is
now much more stable on his feet, living in
a double-wide in ICU, but will soon be ready
to go to an outdoor cage.
"He's eating crickets mostly," said Dr.
Amber. "I don't know how many bugs
he's eaten, probably over 100 per day. I
see him looking at his mirror for much of
the day, he is anxious to get back with the
flock."
The ibis is expected to be returned to the White ibis standing in one inch of water in
wild sometime in February. the bathtub

by Brian Johnson
The 3rd graders from the classes of Ranae Atkinson and Julie Wappes led an
Arbor Day ceremony for family members at The Sanibel School on January
15.
Led by Jake Mann, who did a superb job orchestrating the event, the 3rd graders
shared poems, essays and fun facts about the importance of trees to the Sanibel and
worldwide ecosystem.
"It was just wonderful, we had a lot of parents and grandparents join us," said
Wappes. "I was so proud of the students they have such a strong sense of conserva-
tion, and they are the best singers we have ever had!"
After the ceremony, the 3rd graders planted a slash pine, donated by Doc Ford's
owner Marty Harrity, next to the new boardwalk in the parking lot fronting the school.
The slash pine grows quickly and thrives in humid climates with moist soil.


Each child was given a longleaf pine as a gift by parents Mark and Heidi Marinello.
Here are some of the things the 3rd graders had to say in tribute to trees:
"A cypress tree is beautiful, even when one thousand years old," said Camilo
Lilleslatten.
"It takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup," said Kaitlyn
Rothwell.
"Trees combat the greenhouse effects of global warming by turning carbon dioxide
into oxygen this process is called photosynthesis," said Maria Angelino.
"If you see someone cutting down a tree, say stop, because it's less oxygen in the
air," said Megan Lomano. "I like to climb in trees, and they keep us alive."
"If you plant a tree when you're in 3rd grade, by the time you are in college it will
be 10 times taller," said Ricky Youschak.0

Audubon Presents:
Photographing Birds Of South Florida


Tricolor roseate spoonbills
Program entitled Photographing the Birds of South Florida: How, Where and
the Ethical Implications to be Considered will be presented by the Sanibel
Captiva Audubon Society on Thursday February 4 at 7:30 p.m.
Award winning photographers Sara Lopez and Dick Fortune will talk about how
they photograph Southwest Florida's Wildlife
Fortune's outlook and thirst for adventure have given him a different perspective
when looking through the lens. He has an uncanny eye for raw beauty that is more
fine art than photography. Lopez's intuitive sense of what is beautiful when she looks
through the camera allows her to capture her subjects' essence as they come alive in
her images.

Dancing With
The Islands Stars
came on stage riding his trademark
Segway, and The Community House
turned into bedlam when his professional
dancing partner yanked off his overalls to
reveal a white disco dance suit.
Karen Bell, a realtor with VIP and co-
owner of Lily & Co., won the People's
Choice Award for her elegant perfor-
mance in the tango. "I was so honored to
be a part of such a wonderful event for
Sanibel," said Bell. "We were all winners!
We all worked very hard and deserved to
win. The award was for all six of the 'win-
ning island stars."'
The dance performances started with
a video clip, often humorous, about the
training sessions at the Fred Astaire Dance
Studio in Fort Myers leading up to the
show, and included candid interviews with
the dancers. Island celebrities Susan Scott,
Liddy Johnson, Linda Naton all had their
fan favorites in the audience and drew
enthusiastic applause for their dancing. Craig Albert and Lyndsay Ridenour













Linda Naton and Steve Wilkie

The professional dancers from Fred
Astaire Dance Studio were brilliant and
donated their time to prepare the island
celebrities. Guests to the show received a
free dance lesson.
Event chairs Marge Meek and Sanibel
Community Association (SCA) President
Salli Kirkland spent four months leading a
group of 75 volunteers in creating an event
that proved so popular that it may become
an annual event. The celebrity dancers
from the islands were frequently stopped,
here and even in Fort Myers, by perfect
strangers asking them questions about the
gala fundraiser.
A wood dance floor, a high-tech sound
and lighting system, and bleachers trans-
formed The Community House into a
Hollywood theater. At the last minute,
as demand grew for tickets, off-site loca-
tions at The Sanctuary, Doc Ford's, Lazy
Flamingo, Beachview and The Dunes
hosted parties with live video feeds of the
dancing hooked up Rusty Farst and Gene
Rogers of Attic Chat Productions. Farst Susan Scott and Steve Wilkie
also filmed the event.
Richard Johnson, the general manager
at Bailey's, dressed in a black tuxedo, served as master of ceremonies along with
hostess Evette Zubriggen. On the panel of judges were Rick Zubriggen of Zubriggen
Financial, Marjorie Nordstrom, and Bobby Logue.
The support of the business community started with Title Sponsor Al Hanser and
the Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, and also included Melissa Talmage from Sweet
Melissa's Cafe, John Talmage of Island Pizza, Jenny Edgar of the Mermaid Restaurant
and Bar, and catering by Leslie Adams.

Turkish Students
Join Locals For
Shoreline Trip
On Tuesday, February 2 The
Canterbury School in Fort
Myers along with students visit-
ing the United States from Istanbul's
Koc and Istek Belde High Schools will
join Captiva Cruises for a three-hour
Shoreline Discovery program. Carl
Melamet, environmental education
director and biology professor at The
Canterbury School, and Richard Finkel,
environmental educator with Captiva
Cruises, will lead the students on a
hands-on learning experience. The trip
will take the students to Cayo Costa
where they will have the opportunity to
explore shallow sea grass beds and pris-
tine gulf beaches for an up-close look at
the inhabitants and importance of these
habitats.
This is the second year the students
of The Canterbury School and Turkish
students have been involved in this
Bridges program that has also enabled
The Canterbury School students to visit
Turkey last year to study the environ-
ment there. This collaboration enables
students from both countries to study the
impact humans have on their environ-
ment in a very unique and meaningful
way. The object of this partnership and
Bridges program is the study of inter-
national relations and the discussion of
issues of international importance such as
nuclear proliferation and environmental


degradation, in an international forum.
Additional information about this and all
other Captiva Cruises programs may be
obtained by calling 472-5300.A

Farce Extended At The Schoolhouse Learn How To


Theater has extended the run
of its current hit Unnecessary ,
Farce. Due to popular demand and
sold-out houses, Unnecessary Farce.
will now play through Saturday, .
February 13. The show was original- I 1
ly scheduled to close a week earlier. ...
"The response from audiences has
been fantastic," said Madison Mitchell,
marketing director. "It's a great show
and it's really wonderful to see the
community coming out like this."
The cast of seven makes up a
company of zany, colorful charac- ^
ters. Jennifer Smith and James Lane
play Billie Dwyer and Eric Sheridan,
two inexperienced (and clumsy)
cops. They are sent to a motel by
their chief to catch Mayor Meekly
(Dave Yudowitz) in an embezzlement
scandal. Too bad Sheridan can't
think about anything except the cute _
accountant, Karen Brown, (Mindy Kay Francis
Montavon) in the next room. Things
turn crazy when Agent Frank (Marcus
Kiehl) appears to warn Ms. Brown of the Highland Hitman (played by the hysterical
Matthew Edwards). Add in the comedic talents of Kay Francis as Mrs. Meekly and you
have two hours of high quality entertainment.
Artistic Producer Victor Legarreta said, "I'm glad the audiences have thought the
script's as funny as I do! It's been a great season and this show highlights that."
Unnecessary Farce is one show that shouldn't be missed so take advantage
of this extended run. All shows are at 8 p.m., sponsored by 'Tween Waters Inn.
The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theater is at 2200 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. For
more information call the box office at 472-6862 or visit the Web site at www.

See, And Not
Just Look At Art
by Kevin Filiowich
local artist and retired biomedical
engineer, Don Maurer, has devel-
oped a cure for color blindness. To
clarify, his workshop at the BIG ARTS
alleviates blindness of composition in
two-dimensional art. In Interactive Art
Appreciation, Maurer offers students an
opportunity to experience art by experi-
menting with the methods practiced by
master painters.
Maurer's students study paintings
and drawings to extend their aesthetic
understanding of art beyond seeing super-
ficially. The untrained, or "blind," eye of
such an afflicted museum-goer may focus
attention on subject matter and miss the
intention of the artist. But the educated
eye sees more.
The synthesis of art and engineering
are as evident in Maurer's creations as in
his instruction. Students study the effects
of light on color and form by drawing
charcoal shadows on various outlines
to shape three-dimensional figures.
Meanwhile the instructor lectures on the
effect of light on our eyes to describe
underlying grayscale of all color. He
explains that specific cells in the retina
allow us to identify color, while others
only recognize gray scale to distinguish
lines and form.


This scientific explanation of the effect
of color composition on the eye and
brain justifies the aesthetic accomplish-
ments of the masters. Our eyes respond
to the painting in a predictable way and
separate the art of skilled masters from
the amateurs. When converted to black
and white, a properly balanced paint-
ing will still have distinguishable form. A
poorly composed painting, on the other
hand, loses composition as forms are
washed to indistinguishable gray.
Maurer's classes also include color
painting, Matisse cutouts, and a study of
masterworks synchronized with emotion
evoking music, for example. Although
Maurer may not really be curing color
blindness, his class serves as a breeding
ground for local art critics.
Classes meet Thursdays from 1 to 4
p.m. from February 4 through 25. To
join his next class call BIG ARTS at 395-
0900.0

34 ISLAND SUN JANUARY 29, 2010

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF FEBRUARY 1, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You need
to be certain that all the right conditions are
in place before you take that first step. It can't
hurt to listen to good advice from those who
have your best interests at heart.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Be careful
not to get involved in other people's disputes
unless you know the facts behind the disagree-
ments. That's the best way to be assured of
making wise and honest decisions.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You still
need to be careful about how you're going to
spend those energy reserves you finally got
around to restoring. Best advice: Avoid over-
doing it. Let things take their course.
CANCER (june 21 to July 22) Your
aspect continues to favor travel -- alone or
with that special person. So if you've been
putting off making those getaway plans, it's
still a good time to get started on them.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Those so-
called golden opportunities that continue
to dazzle the Lion still need to be carefully
checked out. Be suspicious about anything
that looks like the "perfect" prospect.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Changes at the workplace could make it more
difficult to do things the way you prefer. But
the wise Virgo who shows some flexibility
could find it paying off in a big way.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
You might want to check out the explanation
you were given for a sudden shift in your
duties. There's a possibility that you haven't
been told all the facts that you deserve to
know.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Having confidence in your abilities is impor-
tant, especially when you could be facing a


new challenge, whether it's in the workplace
or in a personal relationship. Good luck.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) A new work-related opportuni-
ty might not be all that it seems. Before mak-
ing any decisions, you might want to check
with others who have had some experience in
that area.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) A situation involving someone close could
benefit from your timely intervention. Avoid
being judgmental. There'll be plenty of time
later for those "little talks" you like to have.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February
18) Travel could be a surprise element in that
new project. Be prepared for other previously
undisclosed aspects that also might come to
light as you proceed with the work.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Try to
balance your work-related responsibilities with
the time you're spending on your recently
revived social life. An old friend might be
planning to return after a long absence.
BORN TH IS WEEK: Your sensitivity
makes you aware of the needs of others. Have
you considered a career as a counselor?


On Feb. 2, 1847, the first woman of a
group of pioneers commonly known as the
Donner Party dies after they become snow-
bound while crossing the Sierra Nevada
mountains. The disastrous trip west ended up
killing 42 people and turned many of the sur-
vivors into cannibals.
On Feb. 1, 1884, the first portion of the
Oxford English Dictionary is published. Plans
for the dictionary began in 1857 when it was
estimated the project would take 10 years
to finish. In fact, it took more than 70 years
before the 125th and final portion was pub-
lished in 1928.


On Feb. 6, 1911, Rolls-Royce adopted
the "Spirit of Ecstasy" mascot, the silver-
winged hood ornament that has become the
company's symbol.
On Feb. 3, 1944, American forces invade
and take control of the Marshall Islands, long
occupied by the Japanese and used by them as
a base for military operations. The Marshalls,
east of the Caroline Islands in the western
Pacific Ocean, had been in Japanese hands
since World War I.
On Feb. 4, 1959, Lawrence Taylor, one
of the greatest defensive players in NFL his-
tory, is born in Williamsburg, Va. Taylor went
on to play his entire 13-season professional
career with the New York Giants and is cred-
ited with redefining the position of outside
linebacker and terrorizing a generation of NFL
quarterbacks.
On Feb. 7, 1964, "Beatlemania" arrives
at New York's Kennedy Airport. It was the
first visit to the United States by the Beatles,
a British rock-and-roll quartet that had just
scored its first No. 1 U.S. hit six days before
with "I Want to Hold Your Hand." The "Fab
Four" were greeted by 3,000 screaming fans,
who caused a near riot when The Beatles
stepped off the plane and onto American soil.
On Feb. 5, 1989, the last Russian troops
withdraw from the capital city of Kabul.
Soviet armed forces entered Afghanistan in
December 1979 to support that nation's pro-
Soviet communist government in its battles
with Muslim rebels. By the time the Soviets
started to withdraw in early 1989, more than
13,000 Russian soldiers were dead and anoth-
er 22,000 had been wounded.


It was American political scientist,
economist, psychologist and professor Herbert
Simon who made the following sage observa-


tion: "What information consumes is rather
obvious: It consumes the attention of its recip-
ients. Hence a wealth of information creates a
poverty of attention, and a need to allocate that
attention efficiently among the overabundance
of information sources that might consume it."
Those who study such things claim that
the act of licking a stamp bums one-tenth of
a calorie.
The shortest song in the world is "You
Suffer," recorded in 1986 by the British band
Napalm Death. It lasts precisely 1.316 sec-
onds.
Stanley Mason was an inventor who
really got around, in a manner of speaking.
In addition to coming with the idea for the
granola bar, he also created the squeezable
ketchup bottle, the disposable diaper, heated
pizza boxes and the dental floss dispenser.
There are more Polish people living in
Chicago than in any city on Earth except for
Warsaw, Poland's capital.
Studiers of statistics say that in any
random group of 23 people, the chances that
at least two of them share a birthday is more
than 50 percent.
In the Commonwealth of Virginia, a
statute contained within what's known as the
Code of 1930 prohibits bribery or corruption
by anyone other than a political candidate.


"I think the biggest mistake most people
make when they pick their first job is they
don't worry enough about whether they'll love
the work, and they worry more about whether
it's good experience." -- Steve Ballmer

A groundbreaking folk ensemble with a rich, robust vocal blend, The New
Christy Minstrels have entertained millions of fans around the world since they were
first assembled by visionary folk singer Randy Sparks more than 40 years ago. Under
Sparks' astute leadership, the Christies have scored major success in recordings, on
television and on the concert circuit. Their innovative sounds were a major influence
on popular and folk music in the 1960s.
In 1962, their debut album, Presenting the New Christy Minstrels, earned a
Grammy for Best Performance by a Chorus. With weekly appearances on the debut
season of The Andy Williams Show, they soon attracted a legion of fans across
the country. Their Ramblin' album went gold and featured their first major hit
single, Green, Green. The group enjoyed other chart successes with This Land is
Your Land, Denver, and Chim Chim Cher-ee, which the group preformed on The
Academy Awards ceremony the evening the song won Best Song of 1964.
With Randy Sparks at the helm, the group continues performing with the refresh-
ing Christy sound that has left an enduring legacy on the music world.

From page 1
Crocodile
Found Dead
They never did hatch, probably
because she was infertile, but she nested
every May 1 on a regular basis. Howland
photographed the crocodile and even vid-
eotaped its movements along her drive-
way from the safety of her Jeep.
Her neighbors formed a vigilante
group to protect the endangered creature.
Howland would place barricades across
Wild Lime Drive at night so vehicles
wouldn't run into the croc if she rested
her approximately 11-foot length in the
road.


Howland recalled one occasion when
her Sunday newspaper was "delivered" to
the bottom of her stairs with teeth marks
through it. She surmised that the croc,
having no offspring to carry, had instinc-
tively picked up her paper instead.
The croc sometimes appeared to have
been in fights with alligators. It's not
known why she ventured so far from oth-
ers of her kind.
She is believed to be at least 50 years
old. Average life span in the wild is up to
70 years. The only other crocodilian that
gained as much notoriety because of his
large size of about 13 feet was an alli-
gator known as Marshall. He was found
dead in a canal off Venus Drive, probably
from old age, in the early '80s.

Crocodile
Howland went to say a last good-
bye to "momacroc" Wednesday,
walking along the East River Trail on
Conservation Foundation land. With her
was Mark "Bird" Westall, a local naturalist
and her former husband, and Tara Wertz,
of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
Refuge staff followed shortly after, led
by Manager Paul Tritaik, to salvage the
croc's remains for study. Tritak said he
wants the croc's entire skeleton returned
to the refuge as a memorial.

Oyster
Restoration
The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation's Marine Lab needs
help with the oyster restora-
tion effort in Clam Bayou on Tuesday,
February 2, 16 and 23, from 9 a.m. to
noon.
Helpers will bag shell at Bowman's
Beach to readyit for deployment in the
spring. By deploying oyster shell, SCCF
is providing hard surface substrate for
young oysters, called spat, to attach to.
Oysters can filter up to 50 gallons of
water per day. That would be like the
average person drinking over 800 gallons
of water in a 24-hour period.
The oyster restoration effort in Clam
Bayou is funded by grant and in-kind
support from the City of Sanibel among
others.


Interested participants, including clubs
and groups, must register with Sabrina
Lartz of the SCCF Marine Lab at 395-
4617 or by email to slartz@sccf.org.4

Florida Rep To
Hold Reception
For Playwright


Joanna McClelland Glass
F lorida Repertory Theatre will hold
an exclusive, catered reception
featuring the Tony-nominated
playwright, Joanna McClelland Glass, at
the Sanibel Harbour home of Gholi and
Georgia Darehshori on Monday, January
25 at 5:30 p.m.


Author of Florida Rep's April produc-
tion, Trying, Glass is an award-winning
author and novelist, and was recipient of
the Rockefeller Grant, NEA Grant and
the Guggenheim Fellowship.
Her autobiographical play, Trying,
chronicles the year she spent as secre-
tary to Judge Francis Biddle, the former
Attorney General under FDR and judge
at the Nuremberg Trials. The gripping
and life-affirming drama is set against
the backdrop of 1960s political unrest
in Washington, D.C., and finds two very
different generations struggling to find
common ground in the midst of very
uncertain times.
Glass will talk about her play, her life
and her career. She will be joined by
Florida Rep Producing Artistic Director
Robert Cacioppo, Chris Clavelli, the
play's director, and Florida Rep regular
Rachel Burttram, who will portray Glass'
fictional counterpart, Sarah.
While this event is open to the public,
space is limited. For more information on

The Sanibel Beet
Aunt Nan's Cheesecake
by Jean Baer and Betsy Ventura
Stop by Aunt Nan's at the
Farmers Market this Sunday, & L2 a
8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at
Tahitian Gardens and meet Julie
and Brad Kiltz and learn more k
about their exciting backgrounds t* U o t -f
and delicious treats. Julie is a
graduate in illustration from the Ringling School of Art and Design while Brad has
a background as a 1994 Olympian bobsledding competitor. With a love of cooking,
together they began baking their cheesecakes and formed their own company, Aunt
Nan's (a name bestowed upon Julie from nieces and nephews). Their Cheesecakes
have truly become a work of art which is part of their intrigue. They do not have
your standard graham cracker crust placed in aluminum, but rather they come com-
plete with creamy, dreamy delectable fillings. Stop by and try a Banana Cabana
with banana liqueur, coconut rum and a macadamia nut crust.
How about the Orange Express, with orange liqueur and Italian espresso in choco-
late fluff? Have a special request? Just ask them and they will bring it along. See you
at the market... we'll know it's you because of the cheesecake in your h i'i,

Rotary Club Of Fort Myers Donates
10 Shelter Boxes To Haiti Relief
The Rotary Club of Fort Myers has donated $10,000 to provide 10 Shelter
Boxes that will assist up to 100 individuals impacted by the earthquake in
Haiti.
ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter,
warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide
At the heart of every ShelterBox is a 10-person tent. Every box contains a chil-
dren's pack containing drawing books, crayons and pens. For children who have lost
most, if not all of their possessions, these small gifts are treasured.
The boxes also contain a life-saving means of water purification and a basic tool kit
containing a hammer, axe, saw, trenching shovel, hoe head, pliers and wire cutters.
As well as a host of other essential items, the ShelterBox contains a multi-fueled cook
stove and eating utensils.
The ShelterBox team has already established three operation centers in Haiti to
facilitate and manage the distribution of these vital supplies.
For years, Rotary International has supported ShelterBox and been a vocal advo-
cate to provide these most basic supplies at various disasters around the world.
The Rotary Club of Fort Myers is Southwest Florida's oldest and largest Rotary
Club, chartered in 1922 and presently has 183 members.
For more information about the ShelterBox program visit www.shelterboxusa.org.

Poetry Reading
anibel poet Ray Buck moves from
his usual setting in the Sanibel
Historical Museum and Village
schoolhouse to his first reading and
book signing for his recently published
book of poetry, South Of Providence,
at the Sanibel Island Bookshop on
Wednesday, February 3, at 5 p.m.
Buck, who has read his poetry on
island at the semi-annual Sanibel Writers
Reads at BIG ARTS Phillips Gallery and
for his ArtPoems, is also known for his
articles on the Sanibel Historical Museum
and its corps of dedicated volunteers and
other general interest articles published in
island newspapers.
South Of Providence, with its more
than 90 poems, covers the poetic land-
scape from the rocky New England coast
to the soft sands of Sanibel, with stops in
between. Buck writes his verse in blank
free flowing lines and in rhyme.
He begins his book with a section
titled From Providence with Love, and
it is evident he enjoys writing about love
and the providence of love as well as
Providence, the capital of Newport and
the Providence Plantations, otherwise
known as Providence, Rhode Island.
From his poetry, it is obvious that
Buck's affection clings just as much to
the tropical delights of Florida as to his
northern origins: the royal poinciana/
proclaims its majestry/extensions touch
my home/as it reaches for my heart.
His poetry grasps the mystery of the
gumbo limbo tree, takes the reader to the


Ray Buck
small cemetery on the bike part between
Algiers Road and Middle Gulf Drive, plays
games with the gopher tortoise.
He writes poetry about Sanibel's
history as found in the buildings in the
Historical Museum and Village; he writes
about the pelicans, hawks, ospreys,
redheaded woodpeckers, vultures, and
frigatebirds of the Sanibel skies; he writes
about the trees and the bushes and the
lizards and the flowers. Buck's poetry
embraces nature.
Buck's poetry also sings of history.
The longest poem in the book, Easter
Eve Eighteen Sixty Five, won't be
among those read at the bookshop. It


takes 24 minutes. However, it will be
given a dramatic reading in its entirety at
the Sanibel Library at 2 p.m. on Monday,
February 8 followed by a discussion on
the friendship of the 14th president of
the U.S., Franklin Pierce, and the novelist
Nathaniel Hawthorne.
The Sanibel Island Bookshop is at
1571 Periwinkle Way, at the intersec-
tion of Dixie Beach Boulevard. For more
information call 472-5223.0

Monday Night Movie
Every Little Step
by Priscilla Friedersdorf
k 'T| he title of this week's
Monday Night Movie
S at BIG ARTS, Every
Little Step, produced in
2009, is also an analogy
for the arduous process of
auditioning. It will be shown
on February 1 at 7 p.m. in
Schein Hall. This delightful,
music filled documentary
tells the stories of danc-
ers striving to be chosen for the cast of a new
production of A Chorus Line which was itself
a reflection of dancers auditioning. The original
production of the musi-
cal opened in 1975
and ran on Broadway
for 15 years and won
nearly every theatrical
prize.
This is a film about .
dancers auditioning for .- '
roles as dancers audi-
tioning. Thousands of
hopefuls show up for
the first casting call and
are eventually reduced
in number to a group
that we become familiar
with as they perform
and are interviewed by
a panel of judges. Their
life stories are woven
together with music and
performance.


* U3


Directors James D. Stern and Adam Del Deo capture all the angst and joy of these
professionals accompanied by the music of Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward
Kelban. One Singular Sensation and What I Did for Love are songs now familiar to
nearly all of us.
This joyous, sometimes poignant film will be introduced by talented dancer Marsha
Wagner who herself appeared in Broadway productions. Refreshments will be served
after the film and Wagner will lead the discussion on the Gainer Veranda. Tickets are
$7 and can be purchased at BIG ARTS in advance or on the evening of the showing.

In states with water riches,
whether now or in the past,
that liquid runs unendingly,
no thought to future fast;

while lands next door lie sterile,
the soil a long-gone wealth.
Starving people feed the flies.
They die for lack of water.
Each one of us is limited
by attitudes of mind.
We see what our filters let us,
a private prism our guide.

Military Threat
From China In
Distant Future
by Max Friedersdorf
J ames Fallows,
regarded as
"the preemi-
nent U.S. journalist
on China," believes a l
that any military
threat to America
from the Chinese is
a very, very long
way away.
Speaking before
another capacity
Sanibel audience James Fallows
in Schein Hall on
January 24, Fallows, a national corre-
spondent for The Atlantic Monthly, lik-
ened the Chinese military to a "Sargeant
Bilko" organization.
Instead, Fallows told the FORUM at
BIG ARTS lecture audience, China's big-
gest challenge "and the gravest threat to
itself" is the environmental issue.
Fallows expects the Chinese economy,
propelled by a population (1.3 billion)
four times that of the United States,
to soon be larger than the American
economy.


Fallows and his family recently
returned to the United States after living
in China for three years, and has been a
regular visitor there for the past 25 years.
Despite a competitive built-in friction
between the U.S. and China, Fallows
added, he believes there is a general
sense among the Chinese people regard-
ing America as neutral to positive.
Fallows says he expects "difficulties
ahead" in the relationship as China sur-
passes America, "but, if we become natu-
ral enemies, that will be disaster for all."
During the question period, Fallows
was asked about the possibility of the
U.S. imposing tariffs on Chinese imports.
Fallows said, "it may become necessary.
Fallows said there is still poverty in
China, "but there are no slums in China"
and you don't see "packs of children"
running about like in India "because of
the one child per family rule."
Fallows said the pension system in
China is underfunded, and there is "an
aging and poor society... there is no
health insurance and when you go to
the hospital you take the money and the
patient and when the money runs out the
patient is out."
Asked about his chief impression since
returning to the states, Fallows said, "My
main surprise is the comfortable way
Americans are living, but the high degree
of worry." The Chinese aren't living as
well, but are very confident," Fallows
added.A

New Island Cookbook Released


Children show off the new cookbook at the Children's Education Center of the Islands

Book Signing
With Randy
Wayne White
Doc Ford's enthusiasts will be
happy to hear that The New
York Times best selling author
Randy Wayne White will be signing cop-
ies of Deep Shadow, his latest novel
in the Doc Ford's series. Booksignings
will be held at Doc Ford's Sanibel Rum
Bar & Grille on Sunday, March 7 and
Monday, March 8, and at the Fort
Myers Beach location on Saturday,
March 27. There will be two appear-
ances each day, from noon to 2 p.m.
and 4 to 6 p.m.
Signings on March 7 and 8 will take
place in the Dinkins Bay bungalow
(named for one of the locales in White's
writings), just off the porch and patio
of Doc Ford's on Sanibel, 975 Rabbit
Road. The affable author will be on break
between signing and, if history repeats
itself, fans will be taking that time to relax
and enjoy the great food and rum drinks
for which the establishment is known,
while waiting for the next book signing.
Deep Shadow is the 17th in the series
and if you listen to the devotees of the
Doc Ford's series, they are looking for-
ward to being hooked from the first page
to the last.
The March 27 signing will be held at
the Doc Ford's Fort Myers location, 708
Fisherman's Wharf, where it all began
for White. In fact, the author reminisced


I l I











about his first book signing right near the
Fort Myers Beach site, and he prayed
that people would show up. His prayers
have certainly been answered and the
throngs of fans are still lining up for a
signature.
Call 472-8311 or go to www.doc-
fords.com for additional information
about this event or upcoming events at
Doc Ford's Bar & Grill at the corner
of Rabbit Road and San-Cap Road on
Sanibel.


Monday Night Movie
Academy
Award Series:
It's Complicated
by Priscilla
Friedersdorf
T he series of
films thought
cbto be con-
Stenders for this
year's Academy
Awards contin-
ues at 1 p.m.
on Wednesday,
February 3, at the
Island Cinema with
It's Complicated.
This film is directed by Nancy Meyers
of whom it has been said, "She makes
movies set in beautifully appointed hous-
es (but not opulent) about attractive (but
not perfect-looking) people in which the
(unintentionally seductive) middle-aged
woman always triumphs."
Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin are
cast as Jane and Jake Adler, divorced
Happenstance finds them back in each
others lives (and beds). The ultimate irony
is achieved: stealing a husband back from
the person who stole him away gives this
a slant and humor that will please most
every woman.
Alec Baldwin's girth fills the screen;
smoothly fat but not flabby he looks not
like the product of gym workout but
the ministrations of hours at the hands
of a masseur plus a steady diet of steak
and scotch. Baldwin's bulk and his self
assured, uninhibited performance nearly
upstages Streep.
Baldwin is now married to a trophy
wife, complete with panther tattoo and
strung out rom over activity at the gym.
She is looking for a sibling for her undis
ciplined tousled-haired boy, Pedro. As
her reproductive time clock is ticking,
the pressure to conceive closes in and
Baldwin must endure the humiliation of
an older man in a fertility clinic. Streep's
cooking, grown children, and a quiet
house beckon him home.
Steve Martin, in his role as an archi-
tect and Streep's budding love interest,
is kind, subdued, diffident and wan but
believable as a man still suffering emo-
tionally from a fairly recent divorce.
The film is fast-paced, hilarious, with
insightful commentary on our present life-
styles and their emotional accoutrements.
I saw it three times and enjoyed it
more each time. Women will find more
to cheer about than men and if your
husband or partner is on the stodgy side,
go alone or with an open-minded friend.
Yes, men, this is a test.
The film is rated R for one marijuana
cigarette and amusingly ribald adult situa-
tions. Tickets are $7.50 and can be pur-
chased at the Island Cinema. Everyone
is invited to attend a discussion of the
film at 3:30 p.m. at The Bean, 2240
Periwinkle Way. The discussion leader is
Mary Snyder.4

Sanibel Adult Softball League
Bailey's Double Bags Championship;
Wiley Veterans Upset Both
Beachview And Great White Grill


Bailey's Baggers


by Nick Brown
he Bailey's General Store softball team the Baggers has done what only
one other team has done in Sanibel softball history won two back-to-back
games to win the post-season tournament.
What makes the win even more remarkable is the team's average age 66.5 years.
When compared to the other teams in the league, whose overall average age is 38, the
Bailey's Baggers seemed a long shot to win this contest of endurance. But they pulled
off two remarkable upsets, defeating in their first round the 2nd seeded Great White
Grill and in the finals the number 1 seed, the Beachview Rec'N'Crew.
"In the end, treachery and guile overcame youth and strength," said team master-
mind Jack Koc, whose devious plan, dubbed Fresh Produce, was what spoiled the Great
White Grill. It was a pickle of a game as the teams exchanged blow for blow. By the top
of the 7th and final inning, the score was 10-10. Bailey's scored a solid five runs that
inning thanks to the hitting of the father-son combo Harold the Hammer and Damon
the Destroyer Law. Then it was Great White's turn to make one final attempt. Needing
five runs to tie and keep the game going, the Great White Grill (who won last season's
tournament) fatally let their Great White teeth bite into the bait set by Bailey's.

Around The Islands With Anne
Beauty Salon Makes Historic
Change Of Location
by Anne Mitchell
By Sanibel's historical measures, the news that Sanibel Beauty Salon has
moved is, well, monumental.
The salon had been a fixture in Bailey's Shopping Center since 1951, founded
there by Mary Kontinos Aleck in the days when there was no running water on Sanibel
except for the rainwater that was collected as it ran off the roof. Today her daughter
Mary Anne Banta runs the salon and one day it will pass to Banta's daughter Deena.

Making Peace With The Ocean
At The Sanibel Sea School
by Leah Biery
D during winter break, some people
curl up under a blanket, sip hot
chocolate and watch movies. At
Sanibel Sea School, we do things a lit-
tle differently. Every year, we brave the
cold to host Holiday Camp, where we
spend two weeks exploring our island's
cold-weather ecosystems. This year was
particularly cold!
Our program was called Peace
Camp, and it was all about relationships.
We bonded with friends while study-
ing symbiosis interactions between
creatures in the sea, and how they help,
harm, and ultimately coexist peacefully
with one another. There are thousands
of examples of symbiosis in the ocean,
and we found many right here on
Sanibel, like barnacles taking up resi-
dence on other shells. Alex Duvin shows off her tie dye while looking
for creatures at Bunche Beach
continued on page 8B

Banta's move to a spacious new location, at 2330 Palm Ridge Road, has been a
great boost for her and her daughter and their six stylists, she said.
"We are still the same old salon, just in a new place. It makes us feel good, like a
new lease on life," Banta said. "We may be the oldest established salon on the island but
it is new and cool and big and bright and wonderful."
Banta inherited the lovely warm caramel wood floors left behind when Chico's
moved out of the space. The addition of sleek black styling stations, black wash basins
and modern d&cor has brought the business right up to the present day. March 25 is
Sanibel Beauty Salon's 59th anniversary.
The salon caters to men, women and children. Services including cutting, shampoo
and set, blow drying, coloring, braids and wraps, hair extensions, manicures, pedicures,
waxing, make-up and ear-piercing. Ladies' haircuts start at $35 and men's at $20. The
salon has the same phone number as always, 472-1111.

START Project For
Lee Schools Well
Under Way
re you as smart as a 7th grader
on marine science?
The Sanibel-Captiva Chapter of
START (Solutions to Avoid Red Tide) has
made progress in producing an electronic
teaching module to be provided to The
Lee County School District for use by sci-
ence teachers to teach various topics on
marine biology.
Dr. Bruce Neill, who heads up the
START team that is producing this teach-
ing aid, presented the prototype for the
module to the San Cap START board at
its January meeting. Neill is president of
the local chapter, on START's state board
of directors and is the founder of the
Sanibel Sea School.
Neill indicated that the project will
include approximately 12, 22-minute
electronic modules (podcasts) targeted
to 7th graders, each covering a different
topic on marine biology. For instance one
of the podcasts will cover micro harmful
algal blooms (HABS) which is the clas-
sification that red tide falls into. Each
module will include a teacher section
providing background information for the
teacher and a student section that covers
the topic in text, in video and includes
interactive teaching tools such as the
crossword puzzle in this article, to rein-
force what the student has learned.
Work the crossword puzzle using


words related to red tide. The first one
to bring the completed puzzle to the
Bait Box with the correct answers wins
$50 worth of bait compliments of Ralph
Woodring, owner of the Bait Box and
founder of the local START chapter.
Woodring is also a member of the
START state board of directors.
Deadline for entries is Febaury 5.
Like all schools across the country,
The Lee County School system's budget
has been severely reduced due to budget
restraints, which has resulted in elimina-
tion or reduction of teaching materi-
als and programs and even teachers.
Environmental sciences have been hit
very hard and have few dollars to work
with. The San Cap START chapter raised
funds for this project at the Cracker Fest
November 6. The prototype has been
shared with local teachers and they have
expressed enthusiasm for forthcoming
teaching modules.
Henry Natchsheim, START board
member and owner of Soon Come on
Sanibel, after seeing the presentation
said, "If we have any hope for preserving
our marine environment, it is vital to pro-
vide this kind of information to our youth
so that they will become good stewards
of these natural resources. They will also
help educate their parents."
START is a partner in the Red Tide
Alliance with Mote Marine Laboratory
and the Fish and Wildlife Marine Institute
(FWRI). This alliance maintains continu-
ous monitoring of the Gulf of Mexico for
outbreaks or blooms.M


Complete this puzzle and take it to the Bait Box on Sanibel. The first correct puzzle
wins $50 of free bait.

Highlights from Week 15:
Sanibel 8-Ball Pool League
Oh what a difference a week makes! One Ball Wonders shooter Joe Mason
won the last four matches in his team's match against Sanibel Cafe and led
the Wonders to its 10-6 win. His efforts helped the Wonders move into sec-
ond place in the league standings.
Last week Mason played second and managed only one win out of four games.
This week he brought his gal pal, Josey, and prevailed upon Wonders' Captain Kip
Buntrock to put him in the pressure-packed anchor position. The result: four big wins
over Joel Lohns, a top player imported by the Sanibel Cafe for the match. Josey was
suitably impressed.
Doug Gentry held up his faltering Bunts Ball Busters team mates and posted a
perfect 4-0 score. His efforts enabled the Ball Busters to squeak out a 10-6 win over
the Fresh Legion Crew and pushed the Crew into third place in the league with only
five weeks remaining. Carmen Senese went undefeated for the Legion Crew and won
the last two games for his team over Ball Busters Captain Bob Buntrock. Senese just
arrived from Texas to once again enjoy a Sanibel vacation with his wife. Last year
Senese placed second in the league's year -end singles tournament

The spacious interior of Sanibel Beauty Salon on Palm Ridge Road


From page 1B
Around The Islands
In honor of Women's History Month,
Watson MacRae Gallery presents its
new exhibit, Women's Stories: Love, Life
and Dreams, which opens on Tuesday,
February 2 with a reception from 5:30 to
7:30 p.m.
This exhibit brings together the work
of five artists from different parts of the
country (two from Sanibel) that through
their art tell stories of women both per-
sonal and archetypical.
Houston artist Sandra York's dream-
like abstract paintings are quiet medita-
tions on aging and unexpected change.
Ceramists Melisa Cadell from Penland,
North Carolina and Kim Alderman from
Woodstock, New York, employ their clay
very differently. Cadell creates evocative
figurative work, while Alderman builds

Hidden Treasures
The Four Cs Of
Diamonds: Parts II

And III
by Dan Schuyler
and Karen Bell
alentine's
Day is right
Around the
corner. So there
li are just a few more
weeks for you to
learn how to select
the perfect diamond for your sweet-
heart. Every diamond is unique, but all
diamonds have certain characteristics
that affect their value: cut, carat weight,
clarity and color.
Of the four Cs, clarity is one of the
easiest to discern. A diamond's "flaws"
or inclusions are visible and easy to see.
Clarity is defined as the diamond's free-
dom or lack of features that are classified
as blemishes or inclusions. Blemishes
are irregularities in the surface such as
scratches, and inclusions are internal
irregularities such as tiny crystals of other
minerals.
The Gemological Institute of America
(GIA) developed a system of descriptive
terms for clarity that includes abbrevia-
tions such as WS, VS SI and so on.
While VS doesn't stand for very shiny
(it is an abbreviation for Very Slightly
Included), the range of classifications from
F for Flawless to 13 for Included, are a
good way to describe the characteristics
of the diamond. Sometimes the flaws are
visible to the naked eye, such as in an 13


Polished diamonds
(Included level 3) diamond, but many such
flaws would only be visible with several
degrees of magnification.
The clarity of a diamond's effect
on value is based directly on the rarity.
Almost all diamonds have clarity char-
acteristics. The less significant they are,
the higher the clarity grade will be. The
higher the grade, the greater the rarity,
and the more expensive the diamond.
However, in most grades, the characteris-
tics will have no effect on the diamond's
appearance.
Perfect or flawless diamonds are very
rare, and it is the inclusions and blem-
ishes that make each diamond unique.
These unique characteristics help to
separate a natural diamond from the
synthetic. After all, when choosing a dia-
mond for that special someone, you want
a stone that is as unique as they are.
Another of the four Cs, color, is a
straightforward concept. Many people
think that diamonds are colorless, when
in fact diamonds occur in a wide array of
hues from nearly colorless to light yellow
or light brown.
The GIA developed a system of 23


ISLAND SUN JANUARY 29, 2010 7B
letter grades running from D or color-
less to Z, which is light yellow or brown.
Anything classified beyond Z is consid-
ered fancy and may be almost any color
of the rainbow.
Like clarity, color's effect on value
is based directly on natural rarity. The
higher the color grade the greater the rar-
ity and cost. To determine a diamond's
color, a trained grader compares it to
diamonds of known color called master
stones under carefully controlled con-
ditions. This permits extremely precise
color distinctions. An instrument known
as a colorimeter can grade color in many
diamonds as well. However, they are not
as accurate and consistent as the expert
human eye.
To get a good idea of the variety of
colors, ask to see a few different grades
of gemstones side by side. The differenc-
es are subtle, sort of like the differences
between white paints. Plus, the larger the
diamond, the more obvious any tint of
color will be. Color can also be easier to
see in some cuts of stones than in others.
The setting of a diamond can help
the color too. Yellow gold masks traces
of yellow or brown and enhances darker
tones. Platinum and white gold dramatize
colorless diamonds, but can make yellow
or brown tints stand out.
So now we've taken you through
three of the four Cs. Cut, clarity and
color. Stay alert for our fourth and final
installment on how to choose the perfect
diamond carat weight. That column will
be heavy!

Sea School Peace
Thanks to a
storm that passed
over the island a
few days before
camp, there were
fabulous shell-
ing opportunities
throughout the
week. Campers col-
lected huge buckets
of Lucine bivalves to
use for art projects,
and we used the
white shells to cre-
ate a "Peace, Love,
and Symbiosis"
mosaic that is now
proudly displayed
on the front of our
building.
The weather was
cold and rainy, so
we bundled up for Olivia Frejka and Christine Cahill try to warm up in the sun after
beach walks and surfing
boat rides. Some
fearless campers even donned wetsuits and braved the chilly water to go surfing. We
always returned to a toasty building and cups of hot chocolate to warm us up.
In the spirit of mutualism (interactions where both organisms benefit), we played
teamwork games that required everyone to help out. We had a three-legged race at
SCCF and we played tug-of-war on the beach. We also played clothespin tag, a game
where campers competed for clothespins like sea creatures compete for resources.
Captain Dave from the Bait Box helped us dissect fish and squid in search of para-
sites, and some of us made squid ink drawings. The same day, we grilled eggplant,
onions, and mushrooms for lunch and sampled fried fish along with our hamburgers
and hotdogs. For many of us, it was a fun opportunity to try foods that we normally
wouldn't eat.

During the second week of
camp, campers sat down with
Miss Evelyn to write about their
worst parts of 2009. We ceremo-
niously burned our bad experi-
ences and sent the ashes out to
sea on December 31 so we could i .
begin 2010 with a fresh start the
next day. In celebration of the
New year, we also released all of
the creatures from our aquaria.
Peace Campers were given
journals at the beginning of
camp, and each day they
answered fun prompts, wrote
about what they learned, and
drew sketches of what they saw
in the field. Some were skeptical
about writing over winter break,
but after a few days everyone
began to enjoy journal time, find-
ing cozy spots around the school
to think and write. Campers
composed ocean carols for our
performance at Bailey's, wrote
poems and stories, and sketched
beautiful fish. At the end of the
week, they submitted their best
work for the Sanibel Sea School Henry Crater writes in his journal at Sanibel Sea
blog. SX3 staff members were Henry ter writes n hs ourna at anbeea
very impressed by their literary S
and artistic skills, and we invite
you to view their work online. You can access the young authors blog by visiting www.
sanibelseaschool.org and clicking the Sanibel Blog link at the top of the page.
The success of our camp programs would not be possible without support from the
Sanibel community. We would like to thank Bailey's for inviting us to perform ocean
carols, Captain Dave and the Bait Box for helping us with fish dissections, and The
Community House for hosting our milk and cookies slideshow at the end of camp.
We would also like to thank the Lazy Flamingo for frying us up some fish that our kids
loved.
Sanibel Sea School is a non-profit foundation whose mission is marine conserva-
tion through experiential education, open year-round. We offer vibrant adult and youth
educations programs centered on the marine resources of Southwest Florida. Visit us

From page 1B
Sanibel Softball
In the midst of their great comeback,
a Bailey's outfielder lost a pop-up in the
lights. The Great White player left the
bag early trying to score too late find-
ing out it was a feint. The ball was caught
and the runner was thrown out at third
base to end the game in an exciting dou-
ble play. Trickery overtook strength.
Final score: 15 Bailey's, 13 Great
White Grill.
In the other semi-final match up, the
number four seeded Sanctuary Island
Electric challenged the top seeded
Beachview Rec'N'Crew. Beachview
took a quick and early lead that they
kept for the entire game. With their
high voltage style of game, Sanctuary
Electric was starting to catch up when
Beachview pulled out their secret weapon
- the Surge Protector. Corey Webb of
Beachview hit a historic grand slam that
left Sanctuary's batteries dead. This grand
slam will go down in Sanibel folklore as
the first one ever in the post-season tour-


nament.
Final score: Beachview 17, Sanctuary
Island Electric 7.
The final contest between Bailey's and
Beachview is a story too epic to tell in
mere words. It was an Iliad of the soft-
ball world a timeless battle to be sung
about for ages past. The gods themselves
seemed to take sides in this struggle. Let
it be said that there were heroics on all
areas of the field. To name but a few:
Deb Gleason, Luke Sweeney, John S.,
Matt Palfri, Harold Brunner, Billy Lees,
and many, many more than are listed
here.
Entering into the game fired up,
Beachview scored a quick 10 runs to
Bailey's one. It appeared that the final
game was going to be a blow out.
Like the Iliad, it took an Odysseus and
his Trojan Horse to penetrate the city
walls of the Beachview's 9-point lead.
Jack Koc, the ever crafty, again outwitted
his opponents. This time the plan was
called Operation: Bakery. Details of the
plan have since been hidden from pub-
lic view labeled "top secret" but widely

speculated to involve some pounding and

The two round President's Cup wrapped

in which net scores were used. Taking

Dickinson, and Minnesota native Judy
Maurer took first place for the 9 Holers.
Let us only hope the Minnesota luck con-
tinues for the Vikes road to the Super

Then again maybe it is not luck but sim-
ply skill.
Jose Baden posted the low gross single Judy Maurer
and two round totals for the event. Jane
Fredericks and Mary Jane Bolon would tie for the best two round totals for the 9
Holers. Unfortunately, their low handicaps didn't help them post winning net scores.

4-Club Triumph
by John Boynton
ith temperatures finally climb-
ing toward Sanibel standards,
Beachview golf professional
Scott Hatto sent his golfers out to com-
pete on Saturday morning, January 16 in
the annual Four Club Tournament.
The best two net balls were counted,
but each player had to choose just four
golf clubs to play with.
The team of former club champion
Rich Rompala, Roger Triftshauser, Dave
Smith, and Frank Klepacki came in with
the low score of 109 to take first place
honors. "I didn't do much to help," said
team captain Rompala, but Trifthauser
disagreed. "Rich hits a reliable long ball
and played his usual solid game," he said,
"but I have to say Smith and Klepacki
carried us most of the day."
Starting with two net eagles on hole 2,
these golfers took full advantage of the,
some would say, overly generous strokes
assigned to them by handicap chair Tony
Baldino. More than a few competitors
could be heard muttering in the clubhouse
after the results were announced.
"We thought we played well enough
to win," said a shocked Mark Ryan, who
came in second, just 3 strokes back,
with teammates Bill Stell, Terry Myers,
and Roger Cogswell. Third place went

and Dick Codair standing on the first
tee. Joined by irregulars Marty Gallagher,
Bjorn Olsson, Dave Baird, Tom Ware,
this writer, and others, Russ and Dick
head out at 7:30 a.m., the first legal
tee time, every weekday morning. They
waste little time over their putts and get
around the course in 3 to 3-1/2 hours.
It's a nice way to start the day. The com-
petition is tough, barbs are flying back
and forth, and those clever Gallagher
comeback lines never quit. Olsson slept
in one memorable cold fall morning, but
he was there in his driveway by the 14th
green to meet the Bilgore/Codair frigid
foursome with Swedish aquavit served in
fine crystal aperitif glasses presented on a
silver tray.M


to Barry Humphries, Rich Croce, Dick
Chocol, and Jerry Tucker with a team
score of 117.
Many expected the talented team of
Dave Wiseley, Jim Mulka, Bill Sartoris,
and Bob Byrne to top the field, yet some-
how they managed to finish dead last, an
astonishing 22 strokes behind the win-
ners.
"What went wrong? Who dropped the
ball?" this writer asked in messages left
on Wiseley and Mulka's voicemails.
Neither man responded as of press
time.M

When Is The

Right Age To

Start Tennis?
by Louis Vosloo
any parents
I wonder
w when is the
best age for their
child to start with
tennis lessons? I
believe when the
child expresses
some hand/eye
coordination and
an interest in ten-
nis (sports) is a good time to start. Most
children's fine motor skills are in the
process of being developed by the age
of six. So, when they are learning at the
age of four, they are able to learn the
simple basics of throwing, catching, bal-
ancing a ball, and listening to directions
from the tennis teacher in a fun environ-
ment. If by the time they are eight years
old and still express an interest in ten-
nis, then their motor skills and muscles
should be in full bloom and they should
be able to learn all the strokes in tennis
and learn to play from the baseline.M


Cubs Play Age-Old Game To

Get New Spring Training Facility -

But It Won't Be In Florida
by Ed Frank
Chances are that the Chicago Cubs are just using Collier
County as a ploy and a bargaining chip to force Mesa,
Arizona, to build them a new spring training complex.
"No," that's not true, the Cubs brass says. And Florida
Governor Charlie Crist says a decision has not been made.
Don't believe it.
Once the dust has settled in the Arizona desert, Mesa will
spend about $84 million to build the Cubs a new 15,000-seat
stadium, practice fields and training facilities, and the Cubs will
remain there as they have for the last 50 years.
The Mesa City Council voted unanimously Monday night to
approve a preliminary agreement to finance the project via a bond issue. The matter
will then be subject to voter approval in November.
Yes, it's possible, but not likely, that the voters could reject the bond issue. Spring
training baseball is a major economic force in Arizona, just as it is here.
Earlier this week, Governor Crist said he and several Florida legislators are spon-
soring legislation to provide $15 million in state sales tax revenue to lure the Cubs to
Southwest Florida with a new training complex.
"I had the opportunity to chat with the owner," the Governor said last weekend,
"and he told me no decision has been made."
But, as the Chicago Tribune reported last week, the Mesa proposal will be consid-
ered by the Cubs' board of directors this week.
Let's face it. The give-and-take exercise by the Cubs is an old, old game in profes-
sional sports. Every franchise in every sport that has sought a new stadium or arena
threatened to move out of town if they didn't get their wish.
We need only go back to last year when the Boston Red Sox made overtures to
Sarasota for a new spring training complex. Within months, Lee County agreed to
build the Red Sox a new facility in order to keep them here.

16B ISLAND SUN -JANUARY 29, 2010

Will Power
Family Travel Expenses
Sby Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills,
Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA


.A common
Question that
I'm asked
S involves which
expenses the estate
can and should pay
when a loved one
dies. The question
sounds something
like this: "Craig, my father just died and
I'm his personal representative. I'm fly-
ing in my wife and children, my sister
and her family are all coming too. Can
I pay for all of the travel, hotel, food
and other expenses from Dad's check-
ing account? That's what he would have
wanted."
Sounds reasonable, but unfortunately
one has to be careful when paying for
family travel expenses to attend a loved
one's funeral. First, let's discuss what
expenses are properly paid from the
estate. Any reasonable travel expenses
incurred by the representative/trustee are
proper tax deductions from the estate,
and so long as the will and/or trust does
not conflict can be paid from estate
funds.
Cleaning up the deceased's home,
costs associated with taking care of the
remains, paying clergy for the service
and other such expenses are also all valid
items that can be paid from the estate.


Same with costs associated with a rea-
sonable reception for those attending the
funeral or related services. This is true
even in situations where there is a service
in two different locations, which may be
common for those who maintain two
residences.
Paying for other family members'
travel expenses, however, is generally not
a valid charge against the estate and is
therefore not a valid tax deduction item
either. Many times, this result strikes the
family as unfair. In these situations, I sug-
gest that the beneficiaries can agree to
use part of their beneficial interest pay
for these types of expenses, although it
should be agreed upon in writing before-
hand. The agreement should lay out
specifically whose beneficial interest will
pay for which travel expenses. Everyone
should understand that the payment of
these expenses for anyone other than a
personal representative or trustee is not
tax deductible. Each beneficiary would be
paying for these items with "after tax"
dollars.
Can a will or trust be drafted to
include a provision to pay for travel
expenses of family members? It can. If
you want such a provision I would sug-
gest a cap on the expenses be put in
place. Even if such a provision exists, the
dollars would still be "after tax" expenses.


In other words, the provision does not
make these amounts tax deductible.
Allow me to elaborate on the payment
of expenses for a reception or a wake.
The IRS generally does not challenge
"reasonable" expenses for these items.
What's reasonable is subject to interpreta-
tion. One would rightfully expect Walter
Cronkite's funeral reception to be more
expensive than, let's say, mine. Therefore
his family would likely be able to deduct
a greater amount for a reception (so long

the point.
..We received
a whole bunch of
calls these past
a weeks about it
Being cold and the
1 heat not working.
What sometimes
happens is we dis-
patch a tech only
to find out that the heat is working, but
can't keep up.
The problem is that most of the heat-
ers that we have in this area are not
designed for outside temperatures this
cold. We usually experience temps in
the low to mid 50s and our heaters are
designed to take the chill out and that's
about it. But when it gets into the high

spent) than my family would be able to.
But one should always exercise conser-
vative discretion to make sure that you
don't raise IRS scrutiny.
If you are faced with these issues it's
always advisable to consult with the fam-
ily estate attorney or CPA.

30s and low 40s it can be tough to heat
your home to where you don't need your
Snuggie.
We are often asked, "why isn't bet-
ter heating installed in the first place?"
It comes down to cost. For the number
of days that we normally experience
extreme cold it is not worth the extra
cost. It also comes down to memory. We
often replace our comfort system in the
summer time after a failure of our cool-
ing equipment. When it is 95+ degrees
outside and all we want is to have relief
from the heat, it's very easy to overlook
heating options, especially when they can
add thousands of dollars to the bottom
line. So the long and short of it is, hang
in there, it will be my favorite season very
soon, hot and humid with those a/c units
humming along. Oh, wait, what was that
loud clonking noise?

Making A

Grand Entrance
by Marcia Feeney
Y You never get
y a second
,chance to
make a good first
impression an
old saying that is
also applicable to
your home. Foyers,
grand or modest,
set the stage for
your entire home
d&cor. This is a keynote area that should
say "welcome" to family and friends
reflecting your personality and introduc-
ing the mood and style of the remainder
of your home.
How can so much be achieved in what
is usually a limited space? Indeed, it is the
very limitation of this area that permits
the greater scope for your ingenuity and
imagination. Since it is a transitional area,
where one seldom lingers, you can use
unusual objects and striking colors with
little danger of their becoming tiresome.
Here is where you can indulge your deco-
rating fantasies.
A vital consideration in planning an
entrance is that it is a high traffic area.
Floors should be durable and easy to
maintain, furniture usually compact and
wall-hugging. Space permitting, a small
bench and an umbrella stand are handy
accessories. Small permanent botanicals
will help transition from outdoors to in.

Newer homes with very large entries
can accommodate a beautiful round table
centered below the chandelier with a
large floral or statuary. Seasonal plants
can be grouped around its base. A lovely
round area rug under the table will also
serve to lower the "echo" problem in
those tall foyers.
Mirrors are good choices, especially in
a foyer with no windows or limited light.
A sconce on either side of the mirror or
one directly opposite will brighten a too-
dark area. Reflective paint or wall cover-
ings will also brighten the room. If you
choose to use chandelier lighting, make
certain that the scale is appropriate to the
area and that the direction of the light (up
or down or both) will be as you need it.
Entrances come in countless shapes
and sizes. If yours is rather small, you
will want to make it look as interesting as
possible. If it is unusually large, you will
want to create warmth and friendliness.
Either way, some careful planning can
assure that your home's foyer will make
its own very grand entrance.

Deli Firm Donates To Komen For Cure Sanibel Flag
S-.- *- Football League
l .. by Eric Pfeifer


Philadelphia-based Dietz & Watson, a deli meat and cheese company, donated $5,000
to Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Southwest Florida for breast cancer research last
week. Above, Mike Griffin, representing Dietz & Watson's distributor in Southwest Florida,
presents a check to Miriam Ross, regional executive director of Komen. Dietz & Watson
president and CEO Louis Eni has more than doubled the amount that was raised at the
five charity events through sales of the company's gourmet franks. Bailey's General Store
and Jerry's Market on Sanibel and the Sandy Butler on Fort Myers Beach were among the
locations holding the charity events.


Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
by Constance Clancy
Q: I have been
under a lot of strain
lately with my hus-
band (second mar-
riage) and some-
times I have heart
palpitations and I
think I am going to
have a heart attack.
I know we need
counseling but he
refuses to go. I feel
helpless. What should I do?
A: The most important thing you do
right now is seek some professional help
for yourself. Schedule an appointment
with your internist or family physician
and let him/her know what you are going
through along with your symptoms. It is
possible you may be experiencing anxiety
or panic attacks, but you want to rule out
any physical complications first. You may
have to go for a stress test. Then, seek
out the services of a counselor who can
work with you and give you guidance to
cope through this difficult time. While it
is natural to have occasional arguments
and spats with your spouse, studies show
that people who report chronic strain and
stress with their spouse are at greatest
risk for heart disease. To help offset heart
disease and heart attacks, women need
to speak their mind and express emotions
during these spats. A trained counselor
can assist you with this and guide you
into making decisions in your highest
good.
Dr Clancy is a licensed mental
health therapist, certified hypnothera-
pist, life coach, author and public


speaker. You may e-mail Dr. Connie at
Connie drconstance. us.

This year, 120 kids are playing
Friday Night Football under the
lights at the school fields. If your
favorite team did not advance to the
Super Bowl, please come out this Friday
and cheer on the youngsters. The
league is broken down into three divi-
sions of four coed teams.
In the six- to 8-year-old division the
Steelers maintained their first place
standings with a 24 to 6 win over the
Chargers. Will Strange ran for a long
touchdown for the Chargers but Steelers
Tanner and Liam Deal both scored touch-
downs and Cameron Ashton threw a
touchdown pass to win the game.
Zachary Farst and Megan Brown tried
to pull the Dolphins to second place,
each scoring a touchdown over the
Giants, but Sean Shackford scored the
winning interception touchdown to keep
the Giants tied for second with a 20-14
win.
In the nine- to 11-year-old division the
Raiders' Jacob Lemmon tried to end the
Rams' winning streak by catching a long
pass for a touchdown and running anoth-
er in, but the Rams' Grant Reel scored
the first touchdown, Pierce Hobbs caught
the game-tying touchdown and Olin Peck
ran in the extra point for a 13-12 win.
In the 12- to 14- year-old division,
the Panthers remained undefeated. Josh
Olson, Brodie Burns and Dylan Kropp
all had long touchdown plays while


Katherine Strange, Taylor Strange and
Madison Weigel played great defense to
hold the Titans to a 26-13 victory. The
Bengals finally got their act together
and stopped the Cowboys 24-13. Mark
Thomas and Laura Chenciner both
scored touchdowns and the "Killer B"
defense stifled the "Bill Belichek Wanna
Be" mastermind coach, Mike Stufano.
There is one more regular season
game on January 29 and then the playoff
games and trophy ceremonies take place
on Friday February 5. You won't want to
miss the game.4

interim VCB deputy director. We had
such an overwhelmingly positive industry
response to our 2009 annual meeting
that we decided to partner once again
with Master Connection Associates for
this upcoming workshop; and, with our
area's abundance of Atlantic bottlenose
dolphins, this program is perfect for our
destination."
At the workshop, participants will take
part an interactive atmosphere in which
they will explore each dolphin lesson
through stories and videos about dol-
phin training and by playing interactive
training games both individually and in
groups. The dolphin training techniques
can be applied to any department in any
company and will even positively influ-
ence personal relationships with friends
and family.
There is no charge for the Lessons
from Dolphins workshop, but registra-
tion is requested. To attend, sign up by

Lee Memorial Lecture Takes A
Look At Arthroscopic Joint Surgery
southwest Florida's sunny, warm climate makes nearly every day a great day for
a ball game, tennis match, round on the links or jaunt on the water, but not if
you're suffering from painful injuries like torn ligaments and tendons to worn
cartilage and bone spurs. John Kagan, MD, will discuss ways to treat these ailments at
Lee Memorial Health System's Well Informed Lecture on Tuesday, February 2 from 5
to 6:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Place Coconut Point, 23120 Via Villagio in Estero.
"Though it was introduced several decades ago, arthroscopy is still one of the
best ways to treat these injuries," said Kagan, a Fort Myers orthopedic surgeon.
Arthroscopy is a minimally-invasive surgical technique. Doctors insert a small camera,
called an arthroscope, into a joint to see what's causing trouble and pain. Then, they
can use other small instruments to repair, reconstruct, cut or shave bones, cartilage or
muscles to correct the problem. Because the surgeon can see the joint and only use
tools at the point they are needed, incisions can be very small and take less time to
heal.
"In addition to less scarring, patients who have arthroscopic procedures often have
fewer complications and less pain than those whose surgeries are done using tradition-
al methods," Kagan said. "These procedures are very safe, so patients should definitely
consider having arthroscopic surgery when the option is available."
Aside from injuries common among athletes, arthroscopic procedures can also be
used to treat ailments like carpal tunnel syndrome.

That's just the way the game is played. It always has been and it always will be.
Everblades Win Five Straight; Improve Season Record to 22-15-6
It has been an up down year for the Florida Everblades, but the local hockey team
is suddenly on fire having won five straight as the week began.
The Everblades swept the Gwinnett Gladiators 5-1 and 3-2 last weekend at
Germain Arena to grab second place in the ECHL South Division with a 22-15-6 sea-
son record.
The local hockey team is home again this week hosting the Trenton Devils at 7:30
p.m. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Through 19 home games this season, the Everblades have drawn 98,190 fans
averaging 5,168, seventh best in the 20-team hockey league
Player and Trevino Commit to Ace Group Classic
Two of the most popular golfers ever to play the game Gary Player and Lee


ISLAND SUN JANUARY 29, 2010 23B
Trevino will compete in the February 8-14 Ace Group Classic at The Quarry in
north Naples.
"Gary Player and Lee Trevino are two of the most recognized and entertaining golf
icons that the sport has ever known," said Tournament Director Jason Camp. "They
rarely compete on the Champions Tour any more, and to see both of them together
in Naples is something that golf fans will not want to miss," he added.
Player, 74, was the inaugural winner of this tournament in 1988. In a six-decade
career, he won an amazing 163 tournaments throughout the world, including nine
majors.
Trevino, 70, won back-to-back titles in Naples in 1990-91. He totaled 29 PGA vic-
tories, including six majors and 29 Champions Tour wins.
Both are members of the Golf Hall of Fame.3

P ets of the week for January
25 at Lee County Domestic
Animal Services are:
Name: Pluto
Breed: pit bull mix
Sex: male
Age: two years
Color: brindle and white
Comments: Hi, my name is
Pluto and I'm known around the
shelter as a "great dog." I am very
calm and well-behaved. I'm a good
listener too, so if you tell me some-
thing I'm going to listen, especially
if it is followed by a treat. My own-
ers have given me up because of
allergies but it shouldn't be a prob-
lem for most people; so why don't
you come on down to the shelter
and meet me in the play yard?
Adoption fee: $20.
Name: Skeezix
Breed: domestic medium hair
Sex: neutered male
Age: four years


Color: orange
Comments: My name sounds like
a sneeze but the only noise you'll hear
from me is purring which I do a lot. I
guess it's because I'm such a happy cat.
I love to be petted and brushed. When
I'm not being groomed I like to spend
my time playing and sleeping. I'd be
an even happier cat if I could go home
with you.
Adoption fee: $50
For information about these and
other animals available for adoption,
call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS), log onto
www.LeeLostPets.com or visit the cen-
ter at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers.
