A Photographic Legacy
by Di Saggau

era. I'm referring to Waterbirds by photographer Theodore "Ted" Cross. The
344-page volume is part visual encyclopedia and part memoir of a nearly half-
century pursuit of birds. It could well be the most gorgeous book of bird photogra-
phy in print, with spirited storytelling that spans four decades and four continents in
one man's journey of capturing on camera the world's most beautiful birds.
Cross said, "It's a labor of love, designed partly for my children and grandchildren
to encourage their love of nature and of these remarkable waterbirds. The birds are
extraordinarily beautiful, they do magnificent acrobatics in the air, and they are very
courageous in the sense that some of these little guys can fit in a tea cup and migrate
8,000 miles every year from Patagonia to the Arctic. One of these birds is the red
knot, which is among the many featured in the book. This bird lives seven years and in
that time it flies the distance of the moon, so it's a very impressive little guy.
To capture the 179 color photos in the book, Cross traveled to Siberia, Christmas
Island in the South Pacific, India and beyond. It's the quality of the photos that makes
Waterbirds unique. "They show birds at peak action rather than sedentary pictures.
The birds are flirtatious, imperial, ill-tempered, courageous, outrageous and even
comical. The text is an intimate personal relationship of my feelings about birds. The
memories of them help me accept the brevity of the time that lies ahead," he said.
Cross, who is 85, had to fend off KGB agents in 1989. "The pink gull nests in
an area of Eastern Siberia, right in the middle of Stalin's death camps. The Russians
are very sensitive about having people in that area, especially people with cameras. A
KGB agent had to go with me, but a guide said the agent would leave as soon as he
saw the gigantic mosquitoes in the area. He was absolutely right. The first sign of the
mosquitoes the KGB agent took off."
Cross comes to Sanibel every year with his wife and two dogs. He introduced his
daughter Amanda and her late husband Torpey to the area.

Docent Bill Bachman's head is
filled with so much Sanibel his-
tory to share with visitors to the
Historical Museum and Village, it's hard
to imagine he was in the rough and
ready world of business in the years
before 1998.
It's not hard to imagine his favorite
building on the village campus on Dunlop
Road, next to BIG ARTS, is the hand-
some 1898 island schoolhouse. He says
he's fascinated with the one-room school-
house and how the one teacher taught
(with student help) and how the students
were seated from smallest to largest (1st
through 8th grades). He recounts the
stories that have come down through the
years about snakes in the teacher's desk
and about the over-active boys assigned
the job of keeping the stove going on
cool January mornings.
The old Sanibel schoolhouse has the
same front blackboard since 1898. For


Sh


1926 hurricane, was found in the move
to the village six years ago, and now sits
up there in a new belfy waiting for chil-
dren to pull the rope and give it a ring.
Bachman enjoys explaining the history
of the school and the fact that Sanibel
was one of the first school systems in
Florida to become integrated.
He's surprised at the number of visi-
tors who attended one-room schools. Few
visitors, he says, link Brown vs. Board
of Education to integration of schools
in the U.S. and how long it took some
school systems to comply with the U.S.
Supreme Court mandate.
Bachman was 30-plus years with a
management consulting firm. Baltimore
remains his primary residence, but in the
summers you'll also find him up on the
Maine coast in South Bristol. Bill and his
wife Gail have great coastlines for winter
and summer, and in between, three chil-
dren and eight grandchildren.
He has all that and the pleasures of
being a Sanibel Historical Museum and
Village docent too. Doesn't get any better
than that.#

Stages Of Faith
nitarian Universalists of the
Islands will meet on Sunday,
February 7 at 7:30 p.m.
in Fellowship Hall at the Sanibel
Congregational United Church of
Christ, 2050 Periwinkle Way. The pub-
lic is welcome to attend.
Rev. Allison Farnum, minster of the
Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort
Myers, will lead the service. Sanibel resi-
dent Michael Finley will provide music
accompanying the service.
In her sermon, entitled Stages of
Faith, Rev. Farnum discusses the concept
that religious life is an ever-renewing pro-
cess of faith development, not a singular
event. Unitarian Universalism affirms
that revelation is ongoing, that religious
adventure is an evolutionary and human
project.
Farnum is a graduate of Meadville
Lombard Theological School and received
her Bachelor of Science in speech at
Northwestern University. She is on the
steering committee for the UU Legislative
Ministry of Florida and also on the board
of Interfaith Action of Southwest Florida,
in partnership with the Coalition of
Immokalee Workers.
Finley, a Karma Yogi, is a musician

one-man jazz quartet.

was done at Sedgemoor at 2549 West
Gulf Drive, which was to build 12 units
3,500 square feet in size. One sold last
June, according to Pappas, for more than
as me ther side, we have a terrible
reality, Pappas said. "We must do some-
thing because nobody can do anything
with these old properties and get their
investment back unless they move in the
direction of Sedgemoor.
Mayor Mick Denham agreed with
Pappas, adding that his concern was the
supply of short-term occupancy "which is
an advantage to businesses. Larger con-
dos tend to have owners who live in them
part-time, whereas smaller units accom-
modate vacationers year-round, adding
up to more business for restaurants and
stores.
Density kept coming up, even though
Denham said that was not the only issue,
others being height, setback, imperme-
able coverage and footprint. Councilman
Marty Harrity said Sanibel became a
city because its citizens didn't want Lee
County to allow 90,000 units on the
island. However, flexibility was in order.
"We used to have a 35-foot height limit.
In fairness to the condo people we went
to 45 feet (when council passed the
buildback amendment some years ago).
That allows condos destroyed by a storm
to rebuild the same number of units as
before. However, flood regulations call
for building in flood zones to be elevated,
hence the extra 10 feet in height council
approved.
Resident Herb Rubin asked about the
legal ramifications and Denham said City
Attorney Ken Cuyler was already working
on that. Sonja Smith, representing CASI
(Condominiums Association of the Island)


said she had met with several associations
this week and "their goal was modern-
ization. Smith added, "I know at least
78 percent of the resort housing stock
ow r sha itd W lank t also
think about land development and special
issues of non-conforming properties. That
means greening up, more energy-efficient
operating systems, and if a state or fed-
eral agency says you must do (something)
the city can t say it doesn't fit code.
Denham said he expects council to
have at least two more meetings to set
criteria before handing the issue off to the
planning commission for more detailed
scrutiny. He acknowledged that such
far-reaching amendments might require
citizen approval. "There may be parts of
this on which we have to have a referen-
dum, Denham said.

ROCOSS TO Help

Ag ing Resorts
by Anne Mitchell
How to encourage the renewal of
Sanibel's mostly old and outdated
resort housing and hotels was
the question before the city council on
Tuesday as its members took the first
steps towards getting the process under
way. The problem is that most of the
properties were built before the city was
chartered and before it set strict devel-
opment rules, so they do not conform
to current codes.
One fear voiced by several council
members was the possibility that Sanibel
could lose short-term accommodations -
crucial to keep the island's economy and
its businesses healthy if owners opt to
replace hotels and small rental units with
residential condos, which can prove more
profitable.
However, it was generally agreed that
council's task was to set broad param-
eters to be honed and expanded by the
planning commission rather than to
concern itself with specific properties.
One particular property came up
several times in discussion Bert Jenks'
Waterside Inn, which has 27 units but
under current codes is entitled to just 13.
The city has to come up with incentives
for people like Jenks to renovate some-
thing that currently would cause him
to lose 14 units. As Councilman Peter
Pappas noted, with 200 feet of gulf-front
property on 2.5 acres, it might be more
economically viable "to replicate what

FOr Savings Ideas
by Anne Mitchell
anibel City Manager Judie
Zimomra gave the city council a
warming Tuesday that revenues
from property taxes are likely to drop
even more.
"There is no doubt that we have yet to
travel through the lowest ebb of the cur-
rent economic downturn, she wrote in a
memo. Our ability to sustain through this
do strong has t ceno e tsourndo te
our government within our means.
Zimomra added that each director and
the police chief are currently preparing a
list of prioritized budget reductions. She
said each employee has received a note
in their paycheck seeking suggestions and
recommendations to save mone .
As evidence of further loss o rev-
enue, Zimomra pointed to the Sanibel &
Captive Islands Association of Realtors
multiple listing service records show-
ing that between 2008 and 2009, the
average sell price for Sanibel residential
properties (not including condominiums)
has decreased by 21 percent, in addition
to the 10.5 percent drop from 2006 to
10and the 6.5 percent decline in
She also attached a report tracking
foreclosed, pre-foreclosed and homes sold
through foreclosure auctions on Sanibel.
"Most noteworthy on this chart is the
long-term upward trend, she added.
Records show that as of January 4,
there were 43 properties in pre-fore-
closure, seven up for auction and 11 in
bank-owned foreclosure.

n response to the earthquake in Haiti,
the Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva
held an emergency special joint
meeting of its club board of directors
and the board of trustees of its chari-
table foundation on January 15 (three
days after the earthquake hit Haiti). At
the direction of both boards, the club
has sent $5,000 to ShelterBoxUSA
($2,000 from the Rotary Club of
Sanibel-Captiva, $3,000 from gener-
ous donors) and another $1,000 to
Rotary District #6960 designated to the
Haiti Earthquake Fund set up by Rotary
International. We will be giving $1,000
in the near future for medical supplies
and as soon as we have, a definite loca-
tion of safe medical facilities supplies
will be sent to our Rotary operative for
distribution.
Although the club's budget for this
year's donations has been somewhat
depleted, our upcoming Rotary Arts
& Crafts Fair on Februay 13 and 14
hopefully will provide additional funding
to continue to help the people in Haiti.
Beyond the initial donation, the club also
set forth a long-term plan for assistance.
Tony Gropp, the immediate past presi-
dent and trustee chair, said, "The need
will be greatest after many other organi-
zations have packed up and gone home."
To that end, the club will designate part
of its trust be set aside for Haitian relief
and is accepting donations from the
public for this giving. These funds will
go to groups of volunteers sponsored by

Rotary, which will provide much needed
help directly to those who need it most.
Rotary ShelterBox has already estab-
lished three separate operational centers
in and around Haiti to help distribute
assistance to the estimated one million
people left homeless by this devastating
earthquake.
The ShelterBox Response Team
(SRT) in Haiti has set up an operations
base in the capital, Port au Prince, with
the assistance of local Rotarians to co-
ordinate the delivery of aid in the country.
They are working with the French aid
agency ACTED to determine the areas
in most need of assistance and are train-
ing personnel to put up tents ahead of
their arrival into the devastated county.
The Haiti operation is being supported
by logistical hubs set up in Miami and
the Dominican Republic capital, Santa
Domingo. ShelterBoxes have been flown
to both cities for onward transportation
to Haiti.
ShelterBox head of operations, John
Leach said, "This is the largest, quickest
and most complex deployment in our
history. We are now very well organized
across four countries to get ShelterBoxes
to the people of Haiti quickly. We are
now set up to channel aid to those in
need efficiently and effectively in the days
and weeks to come. This is a long-term
commitment from ShelterBox and we
have to sustain our initial push."
Warehouse volunteers continue to
pack ShelterBoxes day and night. More
than 3,300 ShelterBoxes have been
committed so far, enough to help up
to 33,000 people. Given the enormity
of the disaster, more boxes are being
packed, ready to be sent to the Caribbean
country. Hundreds of ShelterBox tents
are providing emergency shelter in and
around Port au Prince and hundreds
more boxes are being sent.
ShelterBoxes have been distributed
at Bernard Mews hospital in Freres, a
suburb of Port au Prince and at a sec-
ond hospital in the capital. ShelterBox
Response Team (SRT) member and
General Manager Lasse Petersen (U.K.),
says the use of the tents by hospitals is


already helping save lives. SRT members
Lasse, David Eby (U.S.), Wayne Robinson
(U.S.), Mark Pearson (U.K.) have now
been joined by Ian Neal (U.K.) and John
Mackle (U.K.) on the ground in Port au
Prince.
Pearson said, "We've been working
really hard setting up tents in two sepa-
rate hospitals that are having an immedi-
ate impact and saving lives. As soon as
the tents are up at the hospitals there
are patients moving into them. Small
camps have already been set up in dif-
ferent locations. Fifty boxes have been
distributed in Delmas, 50 in Petion-Ville,
50 in Carrefour and 100 in Leogane,
one of the worst affected areas. Rotarians
in Haiti have been working with the
response team to coordinate the distribu-
tion.
The 700 ShelterBoxes and 100
ShelterBox disaster relief tents sent from
Newquay Cornwall Airport landed in
Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic and
are now traveling over land to Port au
Prince. Another 200 ShelterBoxes, flown
from Vatry, France by the French Red
Cross, landed in Santa Domingo and are
travelling over land to Port au Prince. A
further 400 ShelterBoxes, sent from the
U.K. to Miami, with the help of Virgin
Atlantic, have already landed in Port au
Prince. Petersen and Pearson loaded a
helicopter with ShelterBoxes to be sent to
an orphanage in Port au Prince. Pearson
is traveling with the boxes to oversee the
distribution.
Leach said, "The situation is still
constantly changing but we now have a
good number of boxes in use and a large
number set are arriving. The support
we've had across the board has been
fundamental in making this happen but
the job has only just begun. We are in
this for the long haul and could not do it
without the continued commitment of our
supporters, volunteers and, of course, our
amazing response team members and the
generous support of the public." Petersen
said, "We're doing everything we can to
ensure immediate aid reaches the people
of Haiti. The process of getting our team
on the ground is well under way.

out to the people who have been affected
by this disaster.

item." The etched glass lighthouse orna-

signed by the artist and is available now

To celebrate Valentine's Day, the
first 36 customers who purchase a Luc
Century ornament, a Gisela Dimandl pine

Sanibel Historical Museum and Village
The Sanibel Historical Museum
and Village is showcasing a trio
of gift ideas that are perfect for
Valentine's Day and only available at
the museum. The Village Gift Shop,
located in the 1927 Bailey General
Store, is offering miniature Sailor's
Valentines handcrafted by Jim and Rose
Prestigiacomo in Texas. Paula Newton,
museum volunteer and gift shop man-
ager, said the quality of these Valentines
is exquisite and incomparable for the
price, which is $53 (including tax). Rose
is an award-winning shell artist and Jim
builds the custom cherry wood display
frames that encase Rose's beautiful shell
designs.
According to the Prestigiacomos, the
initial interest in shell mosaics seems to
have followed on the heels of the early
Victorians' fascination with shells. It is
easy to imagine a lovesick seaman taking
a collection of shells and an empty com-
pass case or candy box and fashioning
his own style of shell art. By the 1830s,
the octagonal shell mosaics were being
made by craftsmen in the British West


Indices, mostly in Barbados, and sold to
sailors whose ships were in port there. By
the 1930s, these special shell creations
were being called Sailor's Valentines.
The Village Gift Shop also has a
new selection of hand-woven, colorful
pine needle basketry from Naples artist
Gisela Dimandl. Damandl learned her
craft from an old world artisan and has
been creating beautiful baskets for many
years. She compares her work to that of
the Seminole tribes in Florida who wove
baskets from the long pine needles they
gathered in the forests. Damandl teaches
pine needle basket artist} at BIG ARTS
workshops and her work is exhibited in
galleries in the Northeast. Her baskets are
priced according to size and complexity.
"Another possible Valentine's Day gift
is the Luc Century ornament/suncatcher
featuring the Sanibel Lighthouse," said
Newton. "Luc is a well-known glass
artist on Sanibel and these ornaments
are exclusive to the Sanibel Historical
Museum and Village. The Sanibel
Lighthouse is the oldest and most recog-
nizable structure on the island, and this

BrOWn PeliCOn
by Brian Johnson
Several calls
came into
CROW on
December 27, 2009
..; about a brown
pelican with a slashed
pouch at the docks
' 7, around Punta Rassa.
Later that after-
noon island residents
Tony and Marissa Rizzo were cleaning
their boat at Jensen s Marina on Captiva
when they spotted what may have been
the same bird.
There were a whole bunch of peli-
cans there, but we noticed this one with a
huge gash, said Marissa.
They alerted Stephen Safranek, a
Jensen s employee, who brought over a
large net, towel, and cage.
Tony Rizzo tossed a frozen fish in the
water, and soon the group of pelicans
were competing for the morsel. Together
Rizzo and Safranek tried to hold back the
other pelicans and isolate the injured one.
After about 10 minutes they were able to
net the bird and haul him in,
They transferred the pelican to the
carrier, and the Rizzos drove him to
CROW. "He was very feisty in the cage,
she said.
There was blood everywhere in the


carrier and on the bird, said Veterinarian
Dr. PJ Deitschel, who admitted him at
the clinic. "The curved tip at the end of
his top beak had broken in the carrier,
i .hung at a ninety degree angle to the
Everyone was surprised at the strange
sight of the bird s displaced beak and
wondered what on earth could possibly
be done.
Ever innovative and intuitive, Dr. PJ
popped the tip of the pelican s beak back
into place. "Let s not bump it she said.
"The bird was quite rambunctious and
stressed, said Dr. PJ. "The gashes in the
pouch were huge but we d seen worse.
Staff gave the seven-pound pelican
pain medication, anti-inflammatories, sub-
cutaneous fluids, and Yunnan Paiyou to
reduce the bleeding. They took a radio-
graph to make sure he had not swallowed
a fish hook.
The following morning the bird was
still in a wild mood, but they were able to
place him the tub where he could scoop
herring out of the water without putting
pressure on the tip of his beak.
"For our students and volunteers it was
enlightening, said Dr. PJ. "The instant
reaction was to suture the pouch in order
for him to eat.--
When Dr. PJ arrived at CROW in
1998 it was the practice at the clinic to
suture ripped pouches even though the
suture line often opened. But one case
turned logic on its head and give them
a new treatment strategy. After three
surgeries failed to securely sew up a peli-
can s pouch, Dr. PJ decided to let the
bird try to heal on his own. It worked -


Brown pelican with a slashed pouch


the skin contracted around the large hole,
and eventually the pouch was restored to
full working condition.
Their pouches are very elastic, said
Dr. PJ. "With supportive care, there is
usually no need for surgery.
In the wild, pelicans probably sustain
minor gashes on a regular basis from the
hazardous business of swallowing dozens
of fish. Major gashes, however, very likely
compromise their ability to hunt, and
may be fatal. Supportive care at CROW
-- eating fish out of a tub or bowl -- allows
them to maintain normal nutrition levels
while they heal.
On January 3, CROW staff moved
the pelican to an outdoor cage, where


he flew beautifully between the platforms
on either side of a large pool. Dr. PJ s
improvisational treatment for his beak
had succeeded, and they had no further
problems with it.
CROW released the bird with a group
of other pelicans on Januany 21.

cat Island
Travelers seeking a quiet, secluded vacation with crystal clear water, pristine
pink sand beaches, and 50 miles of rolling hills will fall in love with this des-
tination. Those interested in near shore coral formations, spectacular deep-
water drop-offs, beautiful shells, and nesting sea birds might consider joining Anne
Joffe and Dr. Harry Lee, who are leading this Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum natu-
ral history trip to Cat Island. The seven-day trip will depart from Fort Lauderdale on
April 8.
Untainted by tourism, Cat Island is the sixth largest island of the Bahamas. It is
known for the variety of shells that dot the beaches, including the queen conch, speck-
led tellin, yellow cowrie, and helmet shell notable for its use as cameos. Those intent
on viewing marine life won't be disappointed as green sea turtles, nurse sharks, and
fresh water turtles are frequent visitors.
"This will not be just a trip to the beach, but a natural history adventure, said
Coffee. "This will be a very personalized tour," she adds. Habitat excursions will be
preceded by slide programs highlighting marine and terrestrial life. A snorkeling trip to
a nearby reef and a land snail collection outing are planned along with trips to several
beach and shallow water sites. Shell identification workshops will be offered for partici-
pants requiring assistance identifying specimens.
Accommodations will be at the Greenwood Inn, a resort and dive center on the
southeast side of Cat Island, on the Atlantic Ocean, with an eight-mile stretch of fine
pink sand. Conch shells and red corals are responsible for the unique pink colored
sand. The island's thick green vegetation is comprised of coconut palm trees and tropi-

22 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 5, 2010

T t Th B tfO 6 OSU
A tC | "
This week fish-
ing was a vast
improvement
over what it has
been. Not only has
the water tempera-
ture warmed up to
... mid-60s the major-
ity of the dead fish
that were floating
around all over the
bay have either
sunk to the bot-
tom or washed out to sea on the tide.
It's still hard to forget the devastating
cold water snook kill we just had as I
have not caught a snook in weeks, even
by accident. This time of year I always
catch a few snook while throwing jigs or
targeting redfish against the mangroves
and oyster bars
Trout and redfish fishing were con-
sistent all week with lots of trout caught
every time out. When I was able to locate
the redfish, action was good with five or


six taken out of one spot before moving
on. The reds were all on the smaller side
with rats measuring 16-20 inches on
average. The area around Foster's Point
on North Captiva held some much bigger
reds but I was just not able to get them to
eat a bait.
Trout was without a doubt the best
action in town this week. Even when not
trying to catch trout while targeting man-
grove shorelines for redfish, there they
were.
I have been catching the trout with
a few different methods depending on
the water depth I'm fishing them in.
Throwing soft plastic jigs on the flats has
been a no-brainer with trout caught on
almost every cast. Shallower flats and
edges seem to be holding the largest
numbers of trout with the fish running
14 to 20 inches. In deeper water a live
shrimp fished close to the bottom has
been the better method.
I did make it out a few miles offshore
one day this week on a charter targeting
sheepshead. Most of our nearshore reefs
are starting to load up with these tasty
fish. We did not have a great day due to
windy conditions but did manage about


10 nice keepers. One sunken barge out a
few miles from Redfish Pass was the hot
spot of the trip with the bite going off for
about 20 minutes before shutting down.
We caught some other mixed bag fish
including grunts, flounder, red grouper
and mangrove snapper. This run and gun
reef fishing can really be a blast as you
never know what you're going to find.
What amazed me while offshore was the
lack of the usual bait and birds over the
reefs. I think the cold really pushed all the
bait out to deeper, warmer water.
Just a heads up to all you grouper fish-
ermen, both recreational and commercial:
fishing on the species closed February 1
and will stay closed through March 31.
Closing this recreational fishery does not
make any sense at all. With such strict
limits on grouper already set for the rec-
reational angler what's the point? With
commercial fishing responsible for rough-
ly 95 percent of all total grouper taken in
the gulf, just close commercial and give us
recreational guys a chance.
Then to make it even worse for us
recreational types out there, they lowered
the minimum size of red grouper for
commercial fisherman from 20 inches to
18 inches. How can that help anyone but
the commercial guy?

Capt. Matt Mitchell moved to Sanibel
in 1980 and has fished local waters for
more than 25 years. He now lives in St.
James City and has worked as a back
country fishing guide for more than 10
pears. If you have comments or ques-
tions email captmattmitchell@aol.com.0

Boats in the recent Sanibel-Captiva Sail & Power Squadron headed south past
the causeway C-span and turned ESE to Mantanzas Pass for a recent luncheon
outing. They stayed south of the causeway shoals. After the pass they had to
find the northerly channel and go under the bridge to Fort Myers Beach to the rendez-
vous and luncheon. Docking was stern-in, another challenge.
All was accomplished in good fashion with lots of boats and boaters having fun on
the water. Over 80 squadron members attended.
The squadron had its monthly dinner meeting that included speakers Chris Kockritz
and Bill Jennings.
The presentation covered courses available to the general public. The function of
SCSPS is to promote safe boating through education. A combination of some of the
courses can lead boaters to a certificate being issued, something required by some
states and foreign countries. Call Dick Squitiere at 395-9039 for further information.#

Researcher To Discuss
Caloosahatchee 'Lunar Lander'


Brooke Denkert and Marijke Noens, graduate students at FGCU, wait for sun to set
before sampling zooplankton off Sanibel
At 2 p.m. on Februany 10, the Shell Museum will host Dr. Tolley, a former shell
museum trustee and professor of marine science at Florida Gulf Coast University. Dr.
Tolley will present a program titled, The Importance of Freshwater In-flow To Coastal
Ecosystems; the Goldilocks Approach.
"Larvae respond very quickly to changes in the environment, sometimes within
hours," said Tolley, the founding Director of Florida Gulf Coast University's Coastal
Watershed Institute. "This characteristic makes them ideal for this type of study," he
added.
The research is designed to determine the ideal mix of freshwater in the river and
the best timing for the release of fresh water from Lake Okeechobee. He will describe
how the timing, amount and quality of freshwater delivered to estuaries can influence
the physiology of estuarine organisms, the structure of oyster reefs, and zooplankton
assemblages. The importance of oyster reefs as essential fish habitats will also be
addressed.


University of South Florida graduate student Greg Ellis recovers the sampling tripod with
instruments that take measurements and collect plants living on the river bottom
Dr. Greg Tolley's "lunar lander" doesn't settle on the surface of the moon
but rather on the floor of the Caloosahatchee River. This electronic device
measures parameters such as water temperature, salinity, and color. Dr.
Tolley's interest is in the larval stage of fishes, a distinct juvenile form many animals
undergo before becoming adults. The larva's appearance is different than the adult
phase and they often live in environments that are very different than their adult
counterparts.3

M
Y Sta rs AAA
FOR WEEK OF FEBRUARY 8, 2010
ARI ES (March 21 to April 19) Your
natural Arian leadership qualities make you
the person others will follow in tackling that
important project. But don't get so involved
in the work that you neglect your personal
life.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Aspects
favor sorting through your possessions, both
at work and at home, to start giving away
what you don't use, don't need or don't like.
Relax later with someone special.
G EM IN I (May 21 to June 20) The
issues are not quite as clear as they should
be. That's why you need to avoid getting
involved in disputes between colleagues at
work or between relatives or personal friends.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You'll get
lots of support from others if you own up to
your mistake quickly and include a full and
honest explanation. Leam from this experi-
ence so that you don't repeat it.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) There might
be some early confusion over a major move,
whether it's at work or at home. But once
you get a full breakdown of what it entails, it
should be easier to deal with. Good luck.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Creating order out of chaos, even in the most
untidy spaces, should be no problem for orga-
nized Virgos. So go ahead and do it, and then
accept praise from impressed colleagues.
LI BRA (September 23 to October 22)
Whether it's for business purposes or just for
leisure, a trip might be just what you need
right now. You would benefit both from a

Photographer
James Corwin Johnson
At Audubon Lecture
James Corwin Johnson, director of photography for Yosemite
National Park for 12 years, will present a Sanibel-Captiva
Audubon Society-sponsored lecture entitled Adventures in
Imaging on Thursday, February 11 at 7:30pm at the Community
House.
Johnson has specialized in professional photography for over 35
years and is a graduate of Glen Fishback School of Photography.
Glen Fishback was a contemporary of both Ansel Adams and
Edward Weston and is best known for simplifying the Ansel Adams
Zone System, a technique determining optimal film exposure and
development.
Johnson's career has spanned the gamut of photographic spe-
cialties and taken him to Canada, Mexico, Africa and Europe. His
work has appeared in publications for Eastman Kodak, Paramount
Pictures, textbooks and other consumer industrial media. He is now
the director of Safari Ventures Imaging which is the photographic
arm and educational division of Safari Ventures, which was declared
the best travel adventure company by National Geographic for
2009. However, it is his 12-year Yosemite experience that is the
focus of this lecture.
Yosemite is the third US national park which spans eastern por-
tions of Tuolumne, Maripose and Madera counties in east central
California. The park covers an area of 761,266 acres and reaches
across the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain chain.
With an elevation range of 2,000 to 13,113 feet encompassing
five major vegetation zones, Yosemite is visited by over 3.5 mil-
lion people each year. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984,
Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite
cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, Giant Sequoia groves and biological
diversity
This is the sixth of eight lectures to be held in 2010 on
Thursday at 7:30 p.m. The Community House is at 2173
Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. As always, all are welcome to attend.

Capt. Phil Pica (far right) and his charter showing their gag grouper catches


This coming Tuesday, February 9,
be holding its monthly meeting.
The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.
in the north room of The Community
House located at 2173 Periwinkle Way.
The featured speaker will begin his
presentation at 7 p.m. sharp. There is
no admission charge for the event and
the angling public is cordially invited to
attend.
This month's speakers are two
renowned Lee County fishing guides,
Capt. Phil Pica, who specializes in off-
shore angling and Capt. Sean Davis, who
runs a back bay charter. Both captains
run their guiding operation out of the
Fish Tale Marina on Fort Myers Beach
as well as the Punta Rassa boat ramp
directly off island.
Pica focuses on near shore gag grou-
per during the winter months and pur-
sues tarpon, cobia and permit during the
spring, summer and fall months. He fish-
es near beach ledges and Lee and Collier
counties' artificial reefs. Pica's tower boat
gives his anglers a distinct advantage in
the open waters of the gulf, allowing him
to spot tarpon and permit from a consid-
erable distance.
Davis specializes in inshore angling.
He targets redfish, snook and trout in
his flat's boat. He has been living in
Southwest Florida since he was five years
old and has extensive experience in

Vince Giordano


Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks bring their classic big-band sounds to BIG
ARTS Schein Performance Hall Saturday, February 13 at 8 p.m.
In his 30 years as a bandleader, Giordano has become the authority on rec-
reating the sounds of 1920s and '30s jazz and popular music. His love of re-creating
the music has led to performances at the Smithsonian, Carnegie Hall, the JVC JaZZ
Festival, Lincoln Center, and the Breda Jazz Festival in Holland. Described by one crit-
ic as a "poet of the jazz repertory frozen by time... the authenticity of the music cou-
pled with his firsthand knowledge of the original material provides him with insightS,
experiences, and an integrity that is unique to the musical world."
Giordano also lent his talents to Bix: An Interpretation of a Legend (RCA), the
original soundtrack from the 1990 film. He was typecast as a bass player in Sean
Penn's band in Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown, and he and the band are fea-
tured in Gus Van Sant's film, Finding Forrester.
A critic from the New York Sun called The Nighthawks "the undisputed masters of
syncopated sounds from the pre-swing era, a period when even the much-disparaged
sweet bands" were incredibly innovative.
Tickets are $46 loge, $41 floor, and $15 student.
Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks concert patron sponsor is Ocean's Reach
Gulf Front Condominiums Resort.

romantic story about the life and love affair between artist Salvador Dall and writer
Garcia Lorca.

Priceless follows the amoral high jinks of Irkne, played by Audrey Tautou and her jour-

Winner of seven Caesar Awards, including Best Film, S&raphine is the stoy of a

She was guided through William

ft be performed at
: BIG ARTS with
( > Annette Miller
portraying Israel s
Prime Minister
;,f Golda Meir. Miller
has received rave
reviews for her
portrayal of Meir, saying she makes her
10 times more human, 50 times more
intimidating and altogether too real.
During a recent intewiew with Miller,
she told me that she first performed
the show in 2002 for Shakespeare &
Company in the Berkshires.
It was quite an honor. Originally I
worried whether I would have the chutz-
pah to play this woman. Each time I
do the show I find new things. That s
the wonderful part about live theater,
you find something new all the time. It
becomes richer and richer for me and for
the audience. In the show Meir is telling
her story. It goes back and forth in time.
It starts out with a crisis dealing with the
nuclear bomb.

Glorious! Debuts

In Fort Myers
Theatre Conspiracy will open
Sthe hilarious and musically tone
Sdeaf comedy Glorious! (The
true story of Florence Foster Jenkins,
the worst singer in the world) at the
Foulds Theatre on February 5 at 8
p.m. Directed by Bill Taylor and writ-
ten by Peter Quilter, Glorious! is about
an unlikely and ill-fitting diva, set in the
America of the 1940s.
This Southwest Florida premiere is a
heart-warming new comedy that high-
lights the improbable but true story of a
phenomenally talentless eccentric. Jenkins
(1868 -1944) was an American soprano
and socialite who became famous for her
complete lack of rhythm, pitch, tone, and
overall singing ability. Despite her lack of
ability, Jenkins was firmly convinced of
her greatness. She became tremendously
popular and was the toast of New York in
the 1940s. Her credo was, "People may
say that I cannot sing, but no one can say
that I didn't sing.
She sold out Carnegie Hall for her
concerts while the public roared with
laughter. Produced around the world,
Glorious! has brought the same reaction
from audiences everywhere.
Peter Quilter's plays have been trans-
lated into 18 languages and produced in
27 countries around the world. He has
had two plays in London's West End and
hit shows in major cities, including Cape
Town, Prague, Amsterdam, Helsinki,
Toronto, Warsaw, Rio de Janeiro and
Chicago. _

warming evening in the uplifting
company of the world's favorite

Burns. Say Goodnight Gracie

From page 41
Meir At BIG ARTS
"Something visceral happens to the
audience, they think and learn and mull
over her life. It makes them want to know
more about her. The audience will gain
knowledge and experience her drama
her conflicts, the world she came frog
and grew up in, and how she left the
world changed, because she did. She was
an important woman and I'm privileged
toplay h r

a sense of immediacy and reality to all
of this that it is almost as though we live


within her; we feel her pain and we expe-
rience her joy; we know her thoughts and
we are gripped by her emotions.
Miller has been an actress her entire
life and she said playing the part of Meir
is her favorite role. "This play gives an
insight into the woman not known by
many before. It's extremely pertinent for
today and it gets more and more impor-
tant each time I do it."

Lunch With Best-

Seln 116 |

Elizabeth Berg
Fans of Elizabeth Berg are invited
to join the Sanibel Public Library
Foundation, Inc. for Lunch with the
Author on Thursday, February 11, at
noon at The Sanctuary Golf Club.
Berg made her mark as a promising
writer with the publication of her first
novel, Durable Goods (1993), the story
of Katie, a 12-year-old girl reeling from
her mother's death while her abusive
father drags her from town to town. The
book, like Katie, was tough but tender,
and the American Library Association
named it a Best Book of the Year.
Berg is the author of several bestselling
novels as well as two works of nonfiction.
Open House was an Oprah's Book Club
selection, Talk Before Sleep was short-
listed for an Abby Award. Her bestsell-
ers also include The Year of Pleasures,
The Day IAte Whatever I Wanted, and
Dream When You're Feeling Blue. Her
newest book is Home Safe (April 2009).
Before she became a writer, Berg
was a registered nurse for 10 years, and
considered that her "school" for writing.
"Taking care of patients taught me a lot
about human nature, about hope and
fear and love and loss and regret and
triumph and especially about relationships
- all things that I tend to focus on in my
work," she says.
The event is sponsored by the Bank of


Elizabeth Berg
the Islands.
Berg's appearance is part of the
Sanibel Public Library Author Series
which this season also features Jane
Hamilton and Pulitzer Prize-winner
Elizabeth Strout. Jodi Picoult and Clive
Cussler kicked off the series.
Lunch with the Author tickets are
available at the Library through February
8 at $45 per ticket of which $20 is tax
deductible.
Proceeds from Lunch with the Author
will be used by the Library Foundation
to continue its support for the Library
Author Series. Call 472-2483 for tickets
and more information.

Fulcrum
by Warren Woessner
The edge of the sun
is a warm orange disk
pushing through a web
of bare branches.
For a moment, I can look
right at it, and turn
and find the rabbit
in the still-bright moon
setting in the west.
It is the exact day
of the middle of winter.
I am the high priest,
checking the alignment
of the altar and the two stones,


feeling the earth tilt
toward the light,
right then and there.
I know new life will arise -
water will flow, crops
will grow, I know
I'll be right again.
This poem is from Woessner's
new book, Clear All the Rest of the
Way. Woessner conducted a poetry
workshop and read at BIG ARTS in
1988. He has been published in many
reviews and anthologies over the last
40 years including PoetryThe Nation,

The first portion of that poem,
included in his recently published book
of his poetry, South Of Providence,
will be read, followed by a discussion on
Pierce and his lifelong friendship with one
of America's greatest writers, Nathaniel
Hawthorne. The poem, written for dra-
matic reading, takes about 24 minutes,
depending on the extent of Buck's stage
reading on any given day.
Easter Eve Eighteen Sixty Five takes
place in the home of Pierce, known in
the 1852 election that made him presi-
dent as Young Hickoy from the Granite
Hills. It is the night after the assassina-
tion of Abraham Lincoln. The people of
Concord, New Hampshire descend upon
his home to hear what he has to say
about this unhappy event.
After the poem there will be a discus-
sion on the president usually considered
by historians to be at the bottom of the
presidential list, and the friendship of
two men who were educated at Bowdoin
College in Maine and whose friendship
also tells the stoy of their times and their
fields of endeavor.0

Monday Night Movie
L/' 9 v

by Prlscilla Friedersdorf
his recently released film, Little Ashes, is based on the
F friendship of three important figures in the arts: Salvador
Dali (Robert Pattinson), Federico Garcia Lorca (Javier
? Beltran) and Luis Bunuel (Matthew McNulty). It will be shown
on Monday, February 8, at 7 p.m. in Schein Hall.
Reviews of the film have not been particularly glowing; one
viewer found it "haunting, elegantly made with fascinating
actors... and was enchanted by the music of the guitar, violin and
piano." However, A.0. Scott of the New York Times termed it
a period-costumed highbrow soap opera... heady and earnest
and excmciatingly dull."


Dali exhibits his budding artistic flamboyance and the three men form an artistic tri-
angle which evidences some homosexual leanings. There are beautiful images of Spain
and we learn more about the era prior to the Spanish Civil War as witnessed by the
three famous artists in their youth,
Little Ashes will be introduced on Monday night by Di Saggau. Refreshments will
be served after the film and Saggau 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.
BIG ARTS is sponsoring a visit to the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg on February
19; this film would be an interesting and informative prelude to that world-renowned
art collection. Contact BIG ARTS at 395-0900 to learn more about the trip.0

Leading Researcher Gives Optimistic

Update On Kanzius Cancer Project,
Appeals For Continued Funding
Introduction by Jirn George

research scientist for the John Kanzius cancer research project at
the MD Anderson Cancer Research Center in Houston, has provid-
ed the details of the status of the project in order that local residents
see the progress that has been made.The Island Sun has provided
continuous coverage of the project over the past five years which has
generated significant interest in the technology. Many local residents
have financially supported the research.
Kanzius, wlho died in February 2009, developed a radio wave device
that destroys cancer tumors by heating gold nanoparticles embedded
inside them. The device works on the principal that while radio waves
pass harmlessly through the body, they "cook" any metals in their path.
The key advantage of the system compared to treatments such as che-
motherapy is that it can "precisely target" gold nanoparticles placed
inside the cancerous cells, so the tumor is destroyed while healthy tissue
is left unharmed.

by Steven A. Curley, MD, FACS Professor of Surgery,
Chief, Gastrointestinal Turnor Surgery, MD Anderson Cancer Research Center
We currently have a laboratory group consisting of 13 people. This will
increase with the addition of another two post-does who will be joining the
lab over the next three to four months, as well as the addition of another
PhD with expertise in molecular biology and cancer cell targeting. I am also work-
ing to recruit a full-time PhD to replace Dr. Cherukuri and we will be interviewing
some excellent candidates with expertise in bioengineering, chemistry, and nano-
particle generation over the next two months. I hope to have somebody in place for
this position by summer of 2010.
The laboratory is almost completely self-sufficient at this point. We purchased a
new dynamic light scattering (DLS) unit which allows us to measure accurately the size
and charge of nanoparticles. This includes nanoparticles alone or nanoparticles that
are conjugated to antibodies or other cancer targeting molecules. Currently, the only
two things we are not doing ourselves in the lab is electron microscopy and ICP mass
spectroscopy. The first technique is used to demonstrate the presence of nanoparticles
in cancer cells and the second technique is used to measure (in even tiny amounts) the
amount of gold or other nanoparticles we actually get into cells. We do not perform

Around The Islands With Anne

Cricket Shop Makes
A Colorful Comeback
by Anne Mitchell
After a hiatus of about five years, the Cricket Shop is back on Sanibel and
not only has excellent resort wear, but here's the best part: practically all
the merchandise has 30 to 70 percent off. There is also a rack stocked with
items at $5, $10, $15 and $20, including novelty Sanibel T-shirts and other tops
for $5.
Owner Jeff Johnson said when he closed the Cricket Shop in Naples last year, he
had merchandise still boxed as well as all the inventory from the racks. So he is selling
it at a discount and there are some great deals.
Rhea Redin, who runs the Sanibel store, said the intention is to make the sale a
permanent feature so customers won't have to pay full retail, even for Dotti cover-
ups, SeaSuns separates, Gottex bathing suits, long and short jump suits by Bay Breeze
and jazzy Jams Wear. I also noted some gorgeous layered dresses and skirts from





2B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 5, 2010

CROWV Hires New Executive Director


Greenstein is no stranger to the islands, having retired to Sanibel in 1992. He
served as a board member of numerous local organizations including the Kiwanis, the
Old Schoolhouse Theater Foundation, the Good Neighbor Community Foundation,
and was a charter member and vice-chair of the Hodges University President's
Council. He also served as a board member and president of the local synagogue Bat
Yam, and as a member and chairman of the City of Sanibel Planning Commission.
In 2000, Greenstein became the Executive Director of the Sanibel & Captiva
Islands Chamber of Commerce and held that position through 2006, guiding the
Chamber through challenging times, including the ordeal of Hurricane Charley in
2004. In 2006, he was awarded the Walter Klie Lifetime Achievement Award for
service to the community and also named as one of the first recipients of the Junonia
Award, given by the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau for his outstanding con-
tribution to local tourism.
Prior to moving to the islands, Steve was an attorney in private practice and also
served as assistant city solicitor for the mayor and city council of Baltimore and general
counsel for the Baltimore Economic Development Corporation. During his tenure, he
was given mayoral proclamations by three different mayors and upon his retirement
was designated as an Admiral of the Inner Harbor by the city comptroller for his work
on numerous redevelopment projects that changed the face of downtown Baltimore's
Inner Harbor area.
For the past 18 months, Greenstein has been providing consulting services to local
non-profits, including The Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the Sanibel
Community Association, and for the last five months has been a board consultant for
CROW.
"I appreciate the Board's confidence in me and together we will be developing
strategies for improved governance, communications, development, and facilities man-
agement," Greenstein said. "The construction of the new hospital, student housing
complex and visitor education center has changed the way CROW operates on a daily
basis. But we also need to ensure that the one thing that will never change is CROW's
commitment to deliver quality care to sick, injured and orphaned wildlife and to help
prevent future injuries through education.
Several new ideas have already been implemented at the visitor education center,
including bringing back the daily presentations that are led by volunteers. "We need
to make sure we are giving people a quality experience that is both educational and
inspirational." said Greenstein. "Volunteers have always been the heart of CROW and
their passion and commitment are contagious. When you combine that with the talent
and dedication of our staff and the generous and continued support of our community,
we will continue making a difference in the lives, health and well-being of our wildlife
neighbors.


Dr. Amber McNamara, CROW staff veterinarian; Steve Greenstein, executive director; Dr.
PJ Deitschel, staff veterinarian and clinic director; and Susan Peterson Tucker, president,
Crow Board of Directors.

CROW's board of directors has announced the appointment pf Steve Greenstein
as executive director.
S"We are excited to have Steve join our team, said Susan Petersen Tucker,
president of CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife). "He brings a wealth of
talent and experience to CROW and we are looking forward to working together as an
organization to further our mission of saving wildlife through care and education.

quantum dots and some magnetic nanoparticles heat in the Kanzius RF field. This is
exciting because these nanoparticles can also improve diagnosis and identification of
cancer cells. We have also demonstrated that silver nanoparticles have RF induced
heating characteristics. Silver is particularly interesting because silver itself can be toxic
to cancer cells or to certain types of bacteria. These projects are being completed and
we anticipate submitting a manuscript regarding this by mid-Spring 2010.
Enhancing heat injury to cancer cells. We are studying a number of interest-
ing compounds to make cancer cells more sensitive to the effects of heating in the
Kanzius RF field. We have found a number of molecular agents that alter the sensitivity
of cancer cells and improve the killing in the RF field. I am currently editing one manu-
script on this topic and it will be submitted in January 2010 and we have an additional
project that should be completed by March 2010 with another manuscript submitted
at that time.
One of my colleagues in the Urologic Surgery Group is working with
new targeting antibodies to treat prostate cancer. We have received permis-
sion to proceed with use of these antibodies which will soon be ready for use in clinical
trials. Once we demonstrate that, we can use these to treat prostate cancer cells in
culture dishes and in animals, both within the prostate gland and cells that have metas-
tasized at other sites in the body.
Animal models. We are using both mice growing human cancers and rabbits with
a type of rabbit cancer called VX2 to study the effects of targeted nanoparticles in the
Kanzius RF system. We have run into a few problems with excessive heating of the
ears or legs of the animals and we are currently working to make modifications in the
grounding system to prevent any heat injury to normal tissues. Nonetheless, we are
seeing heating in the tumors and this work will be critical to present to the FDA before
we can proceed with any type of human trials. We have already made several modi-
fications in the grounding device and we believe we will be able to proceed with full
speed with animal testing by February or March 2010.
Targeting melanoma cells. We have two antibodies that target melanoma (the
most aggressive skin cancer) cells. We have demonstrated marked uptake of the tar-
geted nanoparticles in the melanoma cells and killing of the melanoma cells in the
Kanzius RF field. These studies are being completed and we should have a manuscript
ready for submission by Spring 2010.
Treatment of leukemia. I am pleased to report that we have had success in dem-
onstrating that we can target different types of leukemia cells with antibodies conju-
gated to gold nanoparticles. The nanoparticles are taken into the cancer cells and then
when the cells are treated in the Kanzius RF field there is heating and cell death. We
are still fine-tuning this system since we have learned that different types of leukemia
cells have different sensitivities to heat. This will be important data in designing treat-
ment protocols in the future. We have accrued a significant amount of data and I

These manuscripts have been published or accepted in 2009 and we are currently

paper in Cancer will be particularly important because this will be the first paper that
documents that when we deliver the targeted nanoparticles to cancer cells and then
treat them in the Kanzius RF field, the cancer cells are killed, while cells in the same
culture dish that do not take up the nanoparticles are not killed by the treatment. This
is important data showing that the uptake of nanoparticles by cancer cells is critical

We are currently working with a number of cancer types and have a number of
projects ongoing. Specifically:
Modeling of delivery of targeted nanoparticles to cancer cells in vivo
(cancers growing in live animals). As I have noted many times previously, the "so
what" question in all of this is can we be as specific as possible in delivering nanopar-
ticles to only cancer cells? We are now doing some complex mathematical modeling
and designing experiments to prove the models are correct so that we can optimize
delivery of targeted nanoparticles to cancer cells while avoiding uptake by normal cells.
Heating a variety of types of nanoparticles. We have demonstrated that

anticipate a manuscript on the treatment of the leukemia cells in the Kanzius RF field
will be submitted by March 2010.
Treatment of human pancreatic and liver cancers. We have obtained several
antibodies that are highly specific for human pancreas or hepatocellular (liver) can-
cer. These two cancers are critical in that these will be the first two cancers that we
will propose to the FDA to treat when we go to clinical trials. Both of these types of
cancer are particularly deadly with well over 95% of patients diagnosed with this type
of cancer dying as a result of the cancer progression. Both the National Institute of
Health and the FDA are very interested in novel treatment approaches for these can-
cers because they are so lethal and we do not have good treatments at this time. We
have just obtained these new antibodies and I anticipate that this work will be ongoing
at a rapid pace, both in cells in culture and in these cancers implanted into animals.
We hope to complete these studies in the next 4-6 months with a manuscript to be
submitted in Summer 2010.
Biodistribution of gold nanoparticles. We have just completed rabbit stud-
ies showing that gold nanoparticles are not toxic and do not cause side effects when
injected into the veins of rabbits. The nanoparticles are readily cleared in the kidneys.
This demonstrates that these nanoparticles alone are fully safe, it is only when they
are targeted to cancer cells and treated in the Kanzius RF field device that cell death
occurs. A manuscript on this work will be submitted January 2010.
Treatment of VX2 liver cancers in rabbits. We are studying injection of gold
nanoparticles and an oil-based contrast agent (already used in human patients with
liver cancer) into the blood vessels going directly to VX2 liver tumors. These studies
should be completed in the Spring once we solve the grounding issues with the RF
machine, and a manuscript will be submitted by late Spring 2010.
U54 Primary Science Oncology Center Grant
As many of you may have heard, a large $12 million project grant that was sub-
mitted from a team at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the
University of Texas Health Science Center Medical School here in Houston was one
of only 12 centers granted by the National Cancer Institute. This was an extremely
competitive grant with over 80 centers (including six with Nobel prize winners) apply-
ing for funding. The Kanzius RF research project portion of this very large grant was
awarded $2.3 million over the next five years. This money will be used to pay for
postdoctoral fellow salaries, equipment, cells, animals, and supplies we will need dur-
ing that timeframe. I am happy to report that the section of the grant that I wrote
that was entirely devoted to the Kanzius RF field treatment received the single highest
score of any of the applications. This is an excellent validation of the importance of
John's discovery and the potential for this novel treatment approach.

Human-sized Kanzius RF
Treatment Device
I continue to work with the Rutowski
family in Erie, Pennsylvania on design
and ultimately building of a human-sized
treatment device. This will be critical
for us to take this design to the FDA to
perform large animal testing to demon-
strate safety of the RF field treatment.
This entire process is being performed
in Pennsylvania and I am sure updates
will be forthcoming as progress is made.
I know the Rutowski family is work-
ing closely with scientists at Penn State
University and other sites and I eagerly
await successful completion of design
and construction of a larger device so we
can proceed with this testing in concert
with our ongoing cancer cell and animal
treatments.
Ongoing Fundraising
The lab group continues to expand
and our abilities continue to expand.
The U54 grant will be a great help but Dr. Steven curley
will provide just under $500,000 a year
over the next five years to support our
lab functions. Our current annual laboratory budget is approximately $1.5 million so
we continue to be dependent upon the fundraising efforts of multiple groups, includ-
ing those of you receiving this letter. Your support and concern regarding this project
is critical and we will not succeed without continued financial support and fundraising
efforts on multiple fronts. I deeply appreciate your individual and group commitments
to this project, and together we will succeed in getting this treatment to human clinical
trials.

HOppen| g
submitted by Shirley Jewell
The third Monday in January is a
very significant day for Rotarians
and for retired clergyman Ed
Vanderhey, our recent Friday morning
speaker. January 18 was Martin Luther
King Day. Vanderhe said there certainly
wasn't a lot of recognition for this holi-
day nor was there much to remind us
in the press or on television of the life
of this leading civil rights leader and
advocate of non-violent protests against
segregation and racial discrimination.
Vanderhey took part in the epic Selma
to Montgomely protest March in 1965
and he recounted his experiences.
Rev. Martin Luther King was assas-
sinated on April 4, 1968. Born in to
a family of preachers, there was little
doubt he would someday lead his own
congregation and deliver the message of
his faith with the dedication of his grand-
father and father before him. In 1954,
he was selected as pastor of the Dexter
Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama
and the rest is history.
Back then, segregation was an
accepted practice. Races were not to mix
and each was to know their accepted
station in society. There was a growing
unrest toward this attitude and the Jim
Crow Laws within the black community.
Jim Crow laws were state and local laws
in enacted between 1876 and 1965.
They mandated de jure racial segrega-
tion in all public facilities, with a sup-


posedly "separate but equal" status for
black Americans. The separate but equal
did not reflect what truly was going on.
There were growing numbers of boycotts
organized against these laws in restau-
rants, hotels and colleges by blacks. King
led many of the protests while practicing
the non-violent action of Gandhi and
Thoreau.
In 1955 Rosa Parks, a black seam-
stress in a Montgomery department store,
refused to obey bus driver James Blake's
order that she give up her seat to make
room for a white passenger. The bus
driver had her arrested. She was tried and
convicted of violating a local ordinance.
Her act sparked a citywide boycott of
the bus system by blacks that lasted
more than a year. The boycott raised
an unknown clergyman named Martin
Luther King, Jr. to national prominence.
In 1955 to 1956, King led the suc-
cessful effort to desegregate buses in
Montgomery.
Fast forward to 1965. Ed Vanderhey
was a young clergyman in Syracuse, New
York. At the time, George Wallace was
governor of Alabama. Wallace refused
to let black people register to vote on
Alabama even though President Lyndon
B. Johnson had just signed the Civil
Rights Act into effect. King called for the
people to walk beside him on a march
from Selma to Montgomery to show
support for registering black voters in
Alabama. The nation took notice and
clergy from all religions were invited to
participate. In Syracuse, there was a lot-
tery to select those that would be going
to Selma to participate in the march with
King.


on the inside and they marched down dirt
roads and through the black ghetto. They
chanted, "What do you want? Freedom.
over and over. As soon as the marchers
crossed the railroad tracks, they saw the
National Guard, Confederate flags and a
vicious crowd. The more the crowd yelled
the louder the marchers sang.
Vanderhey said he felt euphoria, he
was walking on clouds, and as a person
and a pastor he was proud of his partici-
pation in this march against segregation.
The marches got to Montgomery and
King spoke these words, "We are on a
march now, march to the ballot box and
march to school."
Tired and hungry, they could not find
any place to eat or buses or transporta-
tion to take them back to Selma, so the
black farmers came with horse-drawn
wagons and took them back. On the way
back Vanderhey said you could hear gun-
shots in the distance.
These marches drastically shifted pub-
lic opinion about the Civil Rights move-
ment. This was a turning point.
Although Vanderhey did not become
a close friend of King's, he did become
quite friendly with Mrs. King and
exchanged Christmas cards with her. He
believes King was an American hero. He
gave his life for his country and advanced
the American Dream for all Americans.

Ed Vanderhey


Vanderhey's number was drawn and
he flew to Montgomely meeting fel-
low marchers in the St. Jude's Hospital
parking lot, the only place that would
allow the marches to congregate. They
were told this was to be a non-violent
march. Everyone had to take a pledge
not to fight back in any way to the ver-
bal and physical abuse that they might
be exposed to. If they could not take
the pledge, they should walk away.
Vanderhey took the pledge.
The marchers were taught self-protec-
tive actions. The group prayed and about
10,000 strong, they divided into rows of
five abreast, men on the outside, women

John Grey Painting and Decorating Den Interiors have joined forces to pro-
vide a team approach to coordinating paint colors and finishes with interior furnish-
ings, flooring, and molding. As part of this collaboration, Decorating Den Interiors will
offer a complimentary one-hour paint consultation to clients of either company.
The goal is to assist with color selections, sheens, products and color flow through-
out the home, a process which Decorating Den Interiors Owner Cliff Welles says can
be daunting for homeowners. "There s quite a bit more to a successful project than
just choosing a color without first having a complete plan in place," he said. "Doors,
frames, base and crown moldings can be very important in framing the colors of walls
and ceilings, all of which are essential elements of the palette upon which furnishings,
art and draperies will be placed."
The decorating team will coordinate those details with John Grey Painting s team of
faux artists, muralists and craftsmen.
"Hurried color choices can be disastrous and costly," Grey said. "We think this joint
effort will be popular with many homeowners who realize they would benefit from
some professional help.

landscape varieties, tillandsias (air plants),
and spectacular decorative kinds that
have been hybridized mostly for the florist
trade. She claims to have a yard that is
way past overgrown. Bromeliads require
little fertilization or water and tolerate
colder temperatures. They favor bright,
indirect light which is often the case
under pool cages. Their preferred grow-
ing temperature is 68 to 86 degrees.
Bring some color and beauty into
your life today and treat yourself to a
wonderful tropical bromeliad. See you at

The Sanibel Beet
Bromeliads
by Judy


Mr
byJeanBaerandBetsyventura
Stop by and meet Judy Hicks,
one of the regular vendors at the
Sanibel Island Farmers Market.
You can t miss her because of the
beauty of her booth and her smile.
After moving to Sanibel in 1985 from
Cincinnati with a couple of dozen
tropical plants, Hicks has since become
know as a bromeliad expert on the
island. Although not native to Florida
(like Hicks), bromeliads thrive here dur-
ing our tropical summers. In the winter
they almost go into hibernation which
is the reason their inflorescence lasts for
mont s. h


Shell Point is located in Fort Myers, 2 miles before the Sanibel Causeway.

Sanibel Path Clean-up Day
Clean-up workers sepa-
rated the trash from recy-
cling items, using shopping
bags donated by Bailey's
General Store and Jery's
Foods. Billy's Bike Rentals
helped by picking up and
hauling away filled bags of
ltte ndrpr vdng ref eh-s
Rentals also provides free
bicycles for volunteers who
need them.
This year's clean-up
found the usual types of
roadside trash, such as
cans, bottles, Styrofoam
cups, food wrappers.
However, it is the unusual
and exotic items that the
volunteers find most inter-
esting. In past years, oddi- "S CC-.' -- -
ties such as shotgun shells, -
a black rotary-dial phone,
a gallon container of paint
thinner, a girl's lone shoe
and the carcass of a baby Helen Flemington encounters a piece of PVC pipe
horned owl were reported.
This year, the most curious item was found on the east end: a ladies' engagement
ring, which a local jeweler judged to be not a real diamond (maybe that's why she
threw it out!).
One of the most troubling things seen was the high volume of cigarette butts
thrown from cars along Periwinkle Way and San Cap Road. From the evidence seen,
people are not only tossing lit cigarettes out the window but also dumping the contents
of their ashtrays. In addition to the immediate fire hazard this presents, it also creates a
lasting environmental problem.


Locals To Host Fundraiser For Animals

1Shefts, who
run a non-profit
organization
for animals
called The Onyx
and Breezy
Foundation,
are hosting a
fundraiser for
animal welfare -
on Sanibel and -
Captiva, and
Lee County on The Shefts' labs Tuxie, Rio, and Shadow
Sunday, March
14 at Ellington's Jazz Club and Restaurant.
The evening will feature a live performance by famed comedian Elayne Boosler,
who has appeared on Larry King Live, The Tonight Showu, and Good Morning
America, among other shows. Booster has a passion for animals, said Wanda, and is
coming to Sanibel to support the animals in this area.
"Animals do so much for us, and bring us so much joy they have an impact on
our lives," said Wanda.
"There are a lot of good causes out there, but this one is closest to our heart,"
added Mark Shefts. "It's important."
The night will include a full cocktail hour and open bar, four-course meal, jazz
music, dancing, and a live and silent auction in Ellington's new location in the former
Dolce Vita building on Periwinkle Way. Tickets for this gala evening are $150 with
100 percent of donations going directly to benefit the welfare of local animals.
The Shefts, who split time between Sanibel and New York, started The Onyx
and Breezy Foundation in 2004 in memory of their two Labrador retrievers. It
has grown into a national presence that funds medical treatment, equipment and
research, and supports local organizations devoted to animal care. To learn more, visit

audio visual enhancements, computers, art supplies, musical instruments and library
book shelves, in addition to the Spanish language program. The cost of these un-fund-
ed programs and resources exceeds $100,000 per year.
"This year we have an urgent need to replace the computers used by middle school
students," said Sanibel School Fund President Craig Holston. "The tremendous sup-
port of the community is essential for the continued, outstanding success of our island
school," he said.M

Contrary to popular belief, cigarette butts are not biodegradable. Cigarette filters,
which are made of the synthetic polymer cellulose acetate, do not decompose and only
break apart after many years, persisting in the environment as long as other plastics.
They are a danger to birds and marine animals, who often mistake them for food. In
addition, as they are carried into the water supply cigarette butts can leach toxic chem-
icals into the aquatic ecosystem endangering water quality.

The Super Bowl Is This Weekend


The Browns


The Cardinals


by Eric Pfeifer
Actually there are three playoff games this weekend on Sanibel. In the younger
Division of the Sanibel Flag Football League, the Steelers and the Dolphins
will square off for the championship while the Giants and Chargers will battle
it out for third place. In the middle division, the Rams and the Raiders will fight it
out for first place while the Cardinals and the Browns will determine who finishes
third. In the older division, Bill Strange and his undefeated Panthers will go for a
perfect season against the Cowboys, while the Bengals and Titans play the consola-
tion game. All 120 kids will celebrate another successful season this year by receiv-
ing trophies from a surprise Miami Dolphin this Friday night.
We would like to thank our league sponsors for making football possible for
the island youth: Cooper Construction, Doc Ford s, Hungry Heron, Island Pizza,
Lazy Flamingo, Nick Adams Photography, Pfeifer Realty Group, Sanibel-Captiva
Community Bank and the Sanibel Captiva Trust Company.M

Prior to the start of play, Beachview
golf professional Scott Hatto reminded all
golfers that the club championship and
Beachview/Dunes tournaments are com-
ing up, so "play the ball as lies and hole
out all putts." These simple and classic
rules of golf create more difficulties on
the course than one might think. How
many times have we skulled or chunked
balls close to the green, but buried deep
in the "Murray grass?" And how many
easy two-foot gimme putts have we
pulled or pushed off the mark under pres-
sure?

Large Beachview
Field In Shambles
by John Boynton

threatening as a large field of 48
Beachview warriors went to war
Saturday morning, January 30. It was a
"shamble" format, with each man playing
his own ball in from the spot of the best
team drive. The lowest two net scores
were counted on each hole.
The winners with an amazing 48
under par score of 92 were Helmut
Peters, Tom Ware, Dave Bugby, and
Rene Lohser. President Bill Fellows, Bill
Sartoris, Dick Chocol and Jack Tukey
came in second at 94, and Dan Keys,
Jay Allen, Bill Blankenship and a blind
draw finished third with the same score
through a match of cards. .
Bugby, past Beachview Men s Golf
Association president, attributed his
team's win to solid contributions from
Ware and Peters, but particularly a clutch
7 iron shot to two feet by Lohser on the
final hole. Team captain Peters had chal-
lenged his teammate to execute such a
shot from the par 3 16th tee, and Lohser
delivered like a Swiss watch. The two net
eagles that followed provided the margin
of victory.
Handicap chair Tony Baldino's string
of wins was broken, but incredibly
Lohser was on the winners' stand again.
When asked how he was able to win so
often, Lohser gushed, "I owe it all to my
beautiful wife Terry. She inspires me to

What?
This situation
~depends on one
thing: were you on
the tee box? If yes,
then there is no pen-
alty (like when you
accidentally tap it off
the tee while getting
set up). If you are anywhere but the tee
box (fairway, green, etc.) there is a one-
stroke penalty and you must replace your
ball to where you accidentally hit it from.
So, if you accidentally hit your second
shot with a practice swing in the fairway,
you would replace it and hit it again and it
would be your third shot.

They're Not Basketball Players,
Just The Taillest Pitchers In
Professional Baseball


by Ed Frank
W hen pitcherser fo
and catch-
Minnesota Twins
report here in two
yj weeks for spring
training, you won t
have any problems
spotting Jon Rauch
and Loek Van Mil,
the two tallest pitch-
ers in professional baseball.
In fact, at 7-feet, 1-inch, Van Mil is
believed to be the tallest ever to hurl in
professional ranks. Rauch, just two inches
shorter, was obtained by the Twins from
Arizona last August for the stretch run.
Van Mil was named to the Twins
40-man Major League roster when "he
became the talk of the league," said Jim
Rantz, the veteran director of minor
leagues for the Twins.
We wrote about Van Mil, whose full
name is Ludovicus Jacobus Maria Van Mil,
four years ago when he was first signed by
the Twins out of the Netherlands.
The right hander is a sight to behold on
the mound. When he winds up and delivers
his fast ball in the mid 90s, his lanky frame
appears to reach half-way to home plate.
Van Mil has advanced steadily through
the Twins minor league organization. Local

Jon Rauch
fans of the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team will remember him from last season when
he appeared in 25 relief appearances compiling a 2.86 ERA before being promoted
to Double A New Britain.
There he lowered his ERA to 2.45 in eight appearances.
Why would Van Mil be named to the Major League roster when he has yet to even
pitch in Triple A ball?
As Rantz explained, Van Mil has completed four years in the minor leagues and to
prevent him from being taken by another team in the Rule 5 Draft, he was placed on
the 40-man roster.
Obviously, the Twins feel the seven-footer has great potential with a blazing fast
ball and a hard slider, his two basic pitches. It is likely, according to Rantz, that the
25-year-old will return to Double A New Britain to start the regular season.
There have been few professional baseball players from the Netherlands with one
important exception, that being former all-star pitcher Bert Blyleven.
Now a Twins television broadcaster, Blyleven hurled in the majors for 23 seasons
and narrowly missed admission to the Baseball Hall of Fame in last month s voting.

Minnesota Twins will again lend its time and talents to raise awareness and
Funds for local cancer patients treated at Lee Memorial Health System's
Regional Cancer Center.
The Minnesota Twins Celebrity Golf Classic, being held this year at Fiddlesticks
Country Club in Fort Myers with a shotgun start at 1 p.m., marks the event's 12th
year. Players will fill Fiddlesticks' Long Mean and Wee Friendly courses both well-
regarded as two of the most challenging courses in Southwest Florida.
The 2009 American League MVP and perennial All-Star Joe Mauer is scheduled to
play in the tournament. This year's auction includes travel and ticket packages where
guests can bid to attend the 2010 Masters in Augusta, sit atop TD Bank Garden in the
Chairman's Suite for a Boston Celtics vs. San Antonio Spurs game, watch a Tampa
Bay Lightning game from some of the best seats in St. Pete Times Forum, and dine
at some of the most popular restaurants in this area. Also featured will be luxury island
getaways, one-of-a-kind artisan jewelry and hand-signed memorabilia from sports and
entertainment stars.
Net proceeds from the event will support programs and treatments at the new free-
standing comprehensive Regional Cancer Center located at the corner of I-75 and
Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers. This center consolidates outpatient services, provid-
ing easier access for cancer patients and their families, and incorporates the newest
technologies in cancer treatment, including a trilogy linear accelerator equipped to pro-

The skyscraper tandem of Van Mil
and Rauch will tower over other players
when the Twins gather this month at
the Lee County Sports Complex in Fort
Myers.
Rauch, however, is a proven quantity,
having pitched successfully as a relief
specialist for eight Major League seasons.
He was a vital cog last year in the Twins
late-season race to the American League
Central Division championship when
he compiled a 1.72 ERA in 17 appear-
ances.
Yes, there have been other huge
pitchers that have been successful in the
Major Leagues, probably none better
than the recently retired 6-foot, 10-inch
Randy Johnson. But there hasn't been
a team with two the size of Van Mil and
Rauch.
Fifth-Third Bank Customers Have
Free Admission to Final Round of
Ace Group Classic
All Fifth-Third Bank customers with
ATM or credit cards will receive free
admission to the final round of the

Customers need only to present
their cards at the main gate for entry.
The popular tournament is being held
February 8 to 14 at the Quarry in north
Naples.
Twins Obtain Slugger Jim Thome
Once arch-rival Chicago decided not
to resign slugger Jim Thome, the Twins
moved immediately to obtain the five-
time All-Star with a one-year contract in
excess of $2 million.


Thome has a career batting average
of .277 and has hit 30 or more home
runs in 12 seasons, including a career-
high 52 in 2002. He has a total of 564
home runs.
He will be used primarily by the Twins
as a designated hitter.
Everblades Win Streak Snapped,
Drop Two of Three to Trenton
The Florida Everblades five-game win-
ning streak came to an end last week
when they lost two of three games to the
Trenton Devils at Germain Arena.
Despite the losses, the Everblades
clung to second place in the ECHL South
Division, just one point ahead of third-
place Charlotte. They face the Checkers
on the road this week.
With a season record of 23-17-2,
Everblades will return to home ice at
7:30 p.m. next Tuesday and Wednesday
when they host Gwinnett.
Everblades goalie Barry Brust leads
the ECHL allowing only 2.24 goals per

AT MIROMAR DESIGN CENTER



JASON CHAMPION,
HGTV "DESIGN STAR" FINALIST Chip Lesch, Al Hanser and Dick Pyle

CATEINGPROVDEDBY:T he Sanibel Captiva Trust Company held an investment outlook seminar at The
CATEINGPROVDEDBY:Sanctuary on January 22 to provide commentary and analysis on the stock
market and global economy.
"MAD CUISINE, A SWANKY CEO Al Hanser welcomed guests to the annual event and announced the trust
LIFESTYLE COMPANY" company has added a new range of financial services for its clients.
"We continue to focus on our clients' full wealth management needs rather than
just their portfolio," said Hanser. "These are the times you really need to have a pro-
fessional adviser who understands the complete financial and estate picture of their
clients."
ACCOMMODATIONS
PROVIDED BY:














SSteve Brown and Craig Scott Timothy Vick and A.J. Scribante

Hanser introduced lead speaker and co-chairman of the trust company, Chip
i~ii Lesch, who fashioned a Cash and Courage investment strategy that helped shield cli-
Sents from the worst of the financial crisis.
Lesch quickly recapped the causes of the meltdown, citing "extensive and impru-
I dent use of debt that inflated asset values. He noted that U.S. debt of $53 trillion
exceeded the GDP of the global economy. Close to 80 percent of that debt had arisen
since 1990 due to a culture increasingly magnetized by borrowing and leverage.
~He highlighted three key points to understanding the economic outlook and devel-
Soping an investment strategy:
S1) The unsustainable level of federal debt,
2) The shift of spending from the individual consumer to the government; and
3) Opportunities in the stock market to profit from the unwinding of leverage.
,g Although Lesch warned that unemployment levels and the housing market will take
i: ;JP~r Itime to improve, he noted that corporate balance sheets outside of the financial sector
4, =.are healthy, and that "international liquidity is at an all-time high." There is approxi-
,'i t mately $3.5 trillion in cash and cash equivalents sitting on the sidelines, waiting to be
'* deployed.
Net pr.:.ee >eIhace ::.:- .jll.;r:.~ FedJ fir '.l.ment. pa~~ngr My greatest suggestion is to be patient and stay with fundamental principles," said
Lesch. "This simply takes time."
Hanser then addressed a series of questions posed to the trust company panel,
which included President Terny Igo, chief investment officer Richard Pyle, and portfolio
managers Timothy Vick, Jim Young and Craig Holston. The seminar concluded with
questions from guests.

Igo provided an update on tax mat-
ters, mentioning the estate tax, which
previously had a $3.5 million exemption
per spouse followed by tax at a 45 per-
cent rate, has lapsed for 2010 but the
prevailing thought in Washington is to fix
it at the 2009 rate with some adjustment
for inflation.
Pyle cautioned of a bubble in U.S.
Treasuries and said the trust company
has found better values in corporate
bonds. He projects 4 percent GDP
growth in 2010.


Vick encouraged investors to take a
long-term view of stock market returns,
noting the sevenfold increase in the
standard of living in the past century and
championing a buy-and-hold strategy that
"requires constancy of purpose.
Young sees investment opportunities
in the high growth rates of China, India
and Brazil. Despite gold's spike in the
past year, he still rates the metal a "buy"
due to the federal government "printing
money at a decidedly fast pace.
Holston said inflation is not a near-
term risk and advocated a long term
investment horizon rather than short
term trading tactics.M

descendants in your estate plan wheth-
er or not those bequests are to occur
before or after the death of the surviving
spouse .
When you have amounts that are left
to grandchildren, those bequests are usu-
ally limited by a formula related to the
generation skipping tax exemption. The
generation skipping tax is a "penalty tax"
for leaving too much to grandchildren
and more remote descendants.
The generation skipping tax exemp-
tion formula is also often used when you
leave amounts to your children in a con-
tinuing trust. The reason you may leave
amounts to your children in continuing
trusts is to protect it from divorce, credi-
tors... and from estate tax at your child's
death.
When you leave amounts to your
children this way, the child's share is
often subdivided into an exempt share
and a nonexempt share. These shares
are divided via you got it a formula
that is tied to the generation skipping tax.
Since there is no generation skipping tax
this year (as far as we know) then any
amounts that are to be distributed under
a formula tied to that tax exemption cre-
ates more questions. How much of your
child's share is exempt from tax in his
estate when he dies? We don't know!
This does not mean that your plan-
ning is bad. What it means is that you
might want to review your plan to make
sure that the formulas don't result in
unintended distributions.
Charitable trust planning could be
thrown into disarray. Many charitable
trusts call for the distribution of a portion
of the proceeds to a charity and another
portion to surviving family members.


Sometimes the income is paid to char-
ity for a term of years with the balance
distributed to the family upon the termi-
nation of the trust, and sometimes vice
versa. In both instances, the amounts
that are distributed are tied to the estate
tax formulas. When you have a decedent
who dies this year, there could be several
issues as to who is entitled to what.
Gift tax laws are also in a state of
flux. Consider an irrevocable life insur-
ance trust where the parents contribute
amounts to the trust that are intended to
be used to pay life insurance premiums.
Each beneficiary is provided a Crummey
power, which is a power to withdraw
their portion of the contribution to the
trust in order for the contribution to be
considered gift tax free to the extent
that each portion is less than $13,000.
Where grandchildren are also beneficia-
ries or potential beneficiaries of the life
insurance trust, an allocation of genera-
tion skipping tax exemption generally
occurs automatically. Except now due
to the 2010 rules. So what happens?
These are issues you might want to
address with your estate planning coun-
sel.
Even though the current law abolishes
the federal estate tax for this year, it does
not abolish state death taxes. For those
of you who reside in another state, or
who own property in states that have a
state death tax, there might be additional
problems lurking in your plan.
If all of this isn't confusing enough,
the step-up in tax cost basis rules are in
a state of flux for 2010. You may know
that under the prior law beneficiaries
generally inherit assets at the current fair
market value rather than at the dece-


Sid you ever
I have a
L/ teacher that
answered all of
your questions with
a question of her
own? That's the
way I felt sitting in
the nation's largest
annual professional
estate planning conference held in
Orlando last week. Attending this con-
ference is like taking a full semester's
course load of post-graduate level tax
law in just five days. But I will tell you
this I've been here for the better part
of 20 years and haven't seen anything
like what I saw this year.
At issue is whether there is going to
be a federal estate tax this year (2010)
and what will happen if any of our clients
are unlucky enough to die this year. I say
this because the repeal of the estate tax
law for one year causes untold problems
(and questions) in many estate plans.
Most of you reading this could be affected
one way or another.
You may recall that under the current
law, absent any action by Congress and
the president, there is no federal estate
tax for decedents who die this year.
Before you pop the champagne on the
demise of the federal estate tax, allow me


to elaborate on the multitude of problems
this repeal may cause in many of your
estate plans.
Married couples who have wills and
trusts with estate tax planning built into
them usually have something known as
a "formula clause" in their documents
that divides the estate at death into a
credit shelter trust and a marital trust.
This is also sometimes referred to as an
"A/B Trust." The purpose behind these
formula clauses is to effectively use, to
the extent possible, the first decedent
spouse's federal estate tax exemption.
Here's one problem if you are
counting on a certain amount of money
and assets to be funded into each "por-
tion" of your estate, the repeal of the
estate tax throws this all into question. In
other words, the formula clause found in
your plan could inadvertently cause more
(or less) assets to be distributed to your
children, grandchildren or spouse than
what you had originally intended should
you or your spouse happen to die this
year.
Of particular concern are folks who
have a current distribution to children
even if a spouse survives. This is more
common in second marriage situations,
or in larger estates.
The same holds true when you have
named grandchildren or more remote

the two.
Crown moldings are a wonderful
way to lift attention to ceilings. For a
low ceiling, crown molding can extend
more on the ceiling than on the wall by
simply having the molding reversed when
installed. Paint the molding only a shade
lighter or darker (but with more sheen)
than the wall to avoid defining the ceiling
too sharply.
Don't overlook the effects of lighting.
Chandeliers and sconces, which reflect up
onto the ceiling and are just a bit brighter
than the rest of the room, will give you
the feeling of a larger space.
Ceilings should be an important and
attractive part of your design plan. A little
bit of thought and creativity can add a
whole new dimension to your rooms.

dent's tax cost basis. What this means
in layman's terms is that when I inherit
appreciated property or stock from my
father at his death, and I sell that asset at
the date of death value, I do not recog-
nize capital gain.
Well, this step up in tax cost basis
goes away for 2010. There is a limited
step up in tax cost basis for up to $1.3
million of assets. In order to comply with
this law, beneficiaries will have to know
the historical tax cost basis of the assets
held by a decedent. Married couples get
up to a $3 million step up. Both of these
step-up laws are complex and the report-
ing requirements are not yet understood.
The IRS has not issued forms to file to
comply with this 2010 law.
And all of the above is just a very
small synopsis of the 2010 law's effect.
There are band aids that you can put into
your documents to take care of many of
these problems. If any of this rings a bell,
it makes sense to consider meeting with
your estate planning attorney to ensure
your documents won't lead to unintended
surprises.
So in 2010 we have a lot of ques-
tions. And it's likely to remain that way
until we get a new tax law passed.

too bright of a color in a smaller room,
as it may become oppressive. Light the
lower areas of the room more intensively
so that attention remains closer to eye
level.
Drapery and window treatments in
these rooms need to be carefully designed
to ensure the decorative interest of the
design is at an optimum height. Framed
wall art, mirrors, and tapestries serve to
focus interest at a mid-level height, while
corner voids can be filled with well lighted
trees for softening, texture, and interest.
Volume ceilings in bedrooms can be
transformed into a cozier scale through
the careful use of canopy bed treatments.
An actual canopy bed is not necessary to
accomplish this trick.
Kitchen ceilings can be brought into
a more human scale through the careful
use of wall coverings, borders, and acces-
sories. The inclusion of crown moldings
at the top of cabinets serves to suggest
that the ceiling is at that level. A slightly
darker color than the walls will again help
to fool the eye.
The reverse of the ultra-high ceiling
situation is the standard eight-foot ceil-
ing needing an updating "lift." Vertically
striped wall coverings lead the eye to the
ceiling where bordering can be used to
further expand the feel. Next, paint the
ceiling the background color in the bor-
der to give it the feeling of extending the
space by minimizing contrast. Borders
can also be placed directly on the ceiling
abutting the wall rather than on the wall
itself. This will make the ceiling seem
higher by appearing to be part of the wall

residential furniture

what to do with all the "nothingness"

always more comfortable when the scale
is felt to be more relative to the human
form.
One solution ceiling height can be
visually lowered by applying a molding
on the wall below the ceiling. A rule of
thumb is to place the molding at about
the nine-foot level. The wall above this
detail is then painted the color of the ceil-
ing, thus lowering its perceived height.
This can even be done on the gable end
of a vaulted room.
Since light colors appear to recede
and dark colors advance, a ceiling will
also look lower if painted a deeper hue of
the wall color. But don't use too dark or

Insurance Tip,
Loss of Use
by Mar e Meek


Wedeclaa-igrea- h
tion page of your
homeowners (or
unit condo owners)
insurance policy
you Y will find a line
item Part D loss
Sof use. It looks like
something you
didn't ask for, but
was added. Thanks
to our legislature, certain line items are
automatically added and in most cases
are a percentage of your dwelling cover-
age. This is a valuable coverage in case
of disaster, but needs to be understood
when disaster strikes.
This additional living expense cover-


age so m e outwh irr pda sh ae mde.
Or in the case of rentals, it covers the
income that you would have received
if the disaster hadn't shut down your
property. You will receive the necessary
increase in living expenses required to
maintain your family s current standard of
living while the dwelling is being repaired,
like hotel bills, food bills in excess of
normal grocery/restaurant bills, cooking
supplies and the cost of moving your
property into storage.
Expenses are typically paid until the
coverage amount is used up, even if your
policy expires, until the home/condo
are habitable again. It is worth repeating
that the expenses are paid only until the
amount in your Part D loss of use line
item is used up.
Usually a loss specified by your insur-
ance policy must occur in order to col-
lect loss of use. However, if you are not
allowed back on the island due to a gov-
ernment mandate created by a disaster,
you might be able to collect on loss of
use.
Unit condo owners often ask for more
loss of use, which is especially important
when income stops due to a hurricane or
fire in their complex. After Charley, near-
ly all companies stopped allowing custom-
ers to buy up their loss of use coverage
and defer to the state mandated amount.
How do any of us know how long
our dwelling will be uninhabitable? With
slow response reconstruction time due
to a widespread disaster plus code and
permitting time factors, moving back in
could take a lot longer than you thought,
so use you loss of use money wisely. It is
a valuable coverage, but it is definitely not
infinite.

Captiva insurance agent, wlho can be

Screening For
YOung Children
She Children's Hospital of
wit th eeRono ld cionoatn Hosoie
Charities of Southwest Florida, offers a
free monthly autism spectrum disorder
(ASD) screening for toddlers 18 months
to five years of age.
The next screening will be held
February 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in
the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, locat-
ed in the parking lot of Miromar Outlets
at 10801 Corkscrew Road in Estero. The
Care Mobile will be parked by the lake-
side playground. Another screening will
be held March 5 at the same location.
It is estimated that one in every 150
children is diagnosed with some form
of ASD, making it more common than
childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and
pediatric AIDS combined.
Medical consultants for the project
stress that an early diagnosis can make a
vast difference for toddlers and their fami-
lies. They say early intensive behavioral
intervention can make an immense differ-
ence not just in the development of the
child, but in their families as well.

Love Your Neighbor Event Triples

Proceeds For Heights Foundation


An evening of deca-
dence and delight fea-
turing Norman Love
Confections, wine and cheeses,
innovative sushi and other savo-
ries greeted a crowd of over
200 to benefit The Heights
Foundation. The event, in its
second year, brings together
neighbors of the Harlem
Heights community. Proceeds
from the event support family
development, educational sup-
port, and outreach efforts in
Harlem Heights.
Presenting sponsor and
founder of Norman Love
Confections, Norman Love,
was honored to once again sup-
port the Love Your Neighbor
Event. "My wife Mary and I are
proud to be associated with an
organization that is committed to
building a much needed cultural
arts and community center in
Harlem Heights that will benefit
so many," Love said. "We are
honored to play a small part
in contributing toward the well
being of our community.
Caroline Cunningham opened
her riverfront home to host
the event, bringing together
neighbors from communities
including Gulf Harbour, Palmetto
Point, McGregor Woods, Crown
Colony, and Reflection Lakes.
Victor Mayeron, owner of
The Mucky Duck, and president
of The Heights Foundation, is
one of those neighbors. "As
a business owner, I realize the
challenges families have faced
recently. Those who were
already struggling are feeling the
pinch even more. But I believe
that when you give, you re paid
back tenfold in ways you don t
even know," said Mayeron.
Proceeds from the event
tripled the prior year, with the
addition of a silent auction and
summer camp sponsorships.
Sponsored in part by Craig
Feinberg of Alliance Financial,
the culinary team led by Norman
Love included 55 Degrees, Blu
Sushi, The Flying Pig, Coastal
Wine, and Chef Martin Murphy
of Creative Catering/Robb &
Stuckey Culinary Center. The
riverfront, sunset scene with
live music and auction items
from Mark Loren, Cru, and The
Aesthetic Center created a fes-
tive environment for fundraising.
Funds raised directly support
The Heights Foundation, which
works to break the cycle of
poverty in the Harlem Heights
neighborhood through family
and community development '
support of education and well-
ness, and outreach programs. r
