looking to locate in or expand in
Lee County now have the option of
using tax-exempt Economic Recovery

that would normally not qualify for tax-
exempt debt.
Applications are being accepted now
and will be processed on a first come,
first served basis until the $56.1 million
is exhausted or through September 30,
2010, whichever occurs first.
Typical projects might include:
Commercial build/lease project
(medical office building/strip mall)
For profit healthcare project (doctor-
owned surgery/diagnostic center)
Otherwise disqualified manufacturing
facility project (e.g. $20 million capital
expenses)
Profit/non-profit new businesses
(bank/pharmacy/gas station/big-box
retail)
Expansion of existing business (new
warehouse/showroom/office space)
Reimbursement of expenses related
to the above after a Recovery Zone is

Sanibel Sea School
want to play, watch the local papers for
weekly clues.
Since it began four years ago, Sanibel
Sea School has taught thousands of kids
and adults about the ocean. Summer and
holiday camps in 2009 had waiting lists
nearly as long as the rosters of attend-
ees. Enrollment was as large as we could
make it in our small building.
Adult classes had a promising begin-
ning last spring with a class called
Wonderful Wednesdays. We are continu-
ing our adult offering this spring.
We also had the opportunity to
teach a group in the coral-rich waters
off Tortola and have decided to offer
a Sanibel Sea School excursion to the
British Virgin Islands later this spring.
We have a rich and robust relation-
ship with a Fort Myers organization that
teaches at-risk high school girls. Our
PACE at Sanibel Sea School program
encompasses a marine education cur-
riculum and regular field trips to Sanibel.
In addition, Sanibel Sea School has never
turned down a family or student for lack
of funds, thanks to the generosity of our
supporters.
Sanibel Sea School received the State
of Florida Volunteer of the Year award for
its efforts in collecting water quality data
to keep watch over harmful algal blooms.
We have also received a grant from the
Gulf of Mexico Alliance to educate the
public about our local watershed and a
grant to purchase more Gheenoes (a sta-
ble boat that can be paddled like a canoe)
and outboard motors to teach boating
safety classes to local kids.
This year Sanibel Sea School is also
pleased to have formed a partnership
with BIG ARTS to bring some truly amaz-
ing environmental features to the island.
On April 13, we arranged for Dr. Carl
Safina, Pew scholar, MacArthur Grant
recipient, award winning author and
co-founder of the Blue Ocean Institute,
to speak on Sanibel as part of the BIG
ARTS speaker series and that same week

All of this is to say that Sanibel Sea
School is a thriving 501(c)3 with lots of
good stories to tell and many more to
come. We work very hard to make our
support go far and wide. Together, we
are making a difference in the lives of
people and we are doing our best to pr
serve our ocean planet.

I promise you that this will not happen next year.
Of all what life could give me,

Sanibel Historical Museum And Village
Docent Profile: Marianne Jardine
by Ray Buck
D ocent Marianne
Jardine, who loves to
Stalk about the historic
home Morning Glories,
as many of the Sanibel
Historical Village guides do,
can also give a first-hand
account of the first condo
on Sanibel, purchased by
her father.
Jardine also likes having
folks in "her" kitchen in the
Rutland House, where she
chose to be pictured.
"The kitchen is the heart
of the house," she says,
and this particular kitchen
is so warm and sunny. It Marianne Jardine
reminds me of the kitchen I
grew up with."
She has lots of memories about post-World War II Sanibel, a time when the agri-
cultural past was giving way to the tourist-oriented present. It was 1967. Her parents
Martha and Stan Brown were looking for a place for Stan to recover from surgery.
The story became big news on the island. However, the article and photographs are
so interesting and so full of a sense of Sanibel life just after the causeway was built and
before the island became a city, that it is kept in the back room store at the museum
for those who wish to read it.
Jardine inherited Unit 1B and she and her husband Len retired to it in 2004. By
then the unobstructed ocean view and sunsets were long gone. Two years later they
bought their present home "with lovely deck and view" on Dinkins Bayou where they
"expect to live happily ever after."
e Jardine loves all the buildings in the Historical Village... "but Morning Glories is at
the top."
Morning Glories is the farthermost of the seven structures in the Sanibel Historical
Museum and Village. The home was ordered from the Sears Roebuck catalog and

Rotary Arts
And Crafts Fair
Congress Jewelers is the Gold sponsor
of this year's fair. "The fair is such a won-
derful community tradition that we could
not pass up the opportunity to support it
in a big way," said Scot Congress, presi-
dent of the family-owned fine jeweler.
"This is another way we can celebrate
Congress Jewelers' return to our Sanibel
Island roots and, as a 25-year Rotarian,
I appreciate the great work the organiza-
tion does in our community and beyond."
The club hopes to raise in excess of
$50,000 which will be used to benefit
local organizations providing food and
educational services, Rotary sponsored
international projects providing clean
water and polio immunization, and to
maintain the club's two endowed universi-
ty scholarships awarded to local students.
In addition, the club intends to increase
its effort to assist Rotary affiliated relief
efforts for those affected by the devastat-
ing earthquake in Haiti.
Club President Lee Almas said, "we've
already sent $5,000 to ShelterBox USA
which is providing temporary shelter to
displaced Haitians. We hope to have
additional funds available in the near
future to provide wheelchairs to those
who've suffered the loss of limbs through
amputation and spinal injuries."
The Wheelchair Foundation is a chari-
table organization which partners with
Rotary International to manufacture and
distribute durable wheelchairs for children
and adults at a low cost.
The fair hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
Sunday. Admission is a suggested dona-
tion of $4. The club's trust foundation is
a 501(c)3 charitable organization and all
donations are tax deductible. Donations
for Haitian Relief may be sent to San-
Cap Rotary Trust, PO Box 686, Sanibel,
FL, 33957. For more information, www.

Looking For Owls
m- wurt R


Baby screech owl peeking out of a hole

The nesting season for great
horned, barn, and screech owls of
the islands has begun. The great
horned owl does not make its own nest
but uses one built by an osprey, hawk,
or eagle. The screech and barn owls
nest in tree cavities made by wood-
peckers, or nest boxes. There is a nest
box on the side of the Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation nature center
where barn owls have nested off and on
since 1980.
Will they return this year? Island
screech owls are in the courting phase
with males guarding territory and calling
to females.
On Wednesday, February 17 at 10
a.m. the public is invited to SCCF to
learn more about the Owls of Sanibel and
Captiva. The cost of the program is $5,
free for members and children.:

Affordable Home Community
Is Ready For New Residents
by Anne Mitchell
W hen their baby boy is born in
May, Sara and Dan Nilsson will "
have a home of their own in
which to raise him, a rarity for young
working people on Sanibel. Both work as
managers at Billy's Bikes, which happens
to be just a short walk away.
Most homes on this affluent island of
mostly wealthy retirees and snowbirds run
about half a million dollars and up. Wages
among those in the island workforce don't
qualify for mortgages so large.
The Nilssons are lucky. Instead of hav-
ing to move off-island to buy their first
home, theirs will be a three-bedroom, two-
bathroom duplex in Centre Place in a small
enclave of 14 brand new, attractive piling
homes. Eight are in the equity ownership
program and six are for rent. All are spo- Dan and Sara Nilsson in front of their new
ken for and the first occupants should be in three-bedroom duplex in Centre Place
within a month. three-bedroom duplex in Centre Place
That brings to 98 the number of below
market rate homes on Sanibel. There are a few other equity ownership homes in the
program, but these are the only brand new ones.
Community Housing & Resources (CHR), which manages the city's below market
rate housing program has made it possible for the people who keep the island's busi-
nesses and services running to own a Sanibel home for a fraction of the market price.
To sweeten the deal, those who purchase by June 30 will receive $8,000 in tax credits
from the federal government.
They will never own the land it sits on, but they will build equity in the home itself
at three percent a year for 10 years. When they want to sell, they must sell the houses
back to the land trust which owns most of the CHR properties, so the homes will
always be in the affordable housing pool.
Saturday's grand opening coincided with CHR's 30th anniversary and a crowd of
well-wishers turned out for the occasion, including Bob Duffy, former Sanibel planning
director, who was involved in the earlier stages of the Centre Place project as it went
through the permitting process. Duffy traveled from Washington D.C. for the occa-
sion.
The prefabricated homes were purchased from Nationwide Homes
and CHR Project Manager Rick Kennedy and his crew put in the pil-
ings, built the metal roofs and did the site and finish work. A


Dr. Phillip Marks talks about the project. With him are, from left: Ray Pavelka, CHR board
member; Mike Cuscaden, CHR president; City Manager Judie Zimomra; Councilman Jim
Jennings; Vice Mayor Kevin Ruane; Armand Ball, CHR board member; and Mayor Mick
Denham.
Centre Place is the first Florida Green and LEED-certified project on Sanibel
(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) a federal designation. The features
are expected to reduce utility bills by 30 to 40 percent. All the utilities for the develop-
ment are underground and all the native plants were retained on site.
Mike Cuscaden, president of CHR, said Saturday he felt as proud a father as he did
when his four daughters were born.
Dr. Phillip Marks, president of Coast & Islands Community Land Trust, said the
project had been four years in the planning although the trust has owned the land for
20 years.
The 2.4-acre site was purchased by CHR from a private owner in 1990 with a
$100,000 loan from the city, since repaid. Financing for the project came from a
grant from the State Housing Initiative Partnership (SHIP) for $500,000, a grant from
the HOME Investment Partnership Program for over $98,000, and a construction
loan through the Sanibel-Captiva Community Bank.
Before grants, the three-bedroom homes are $218,000 and the two-bedroom
$198,000.
"All the mortgages are 30-year fixed so there are no surprises," Marks said.
He added, "This is a neighborhood of families who work on Sanibel. It adds to the
vitality of Sanibel so that it is not just a resort island."
Mayor Mick Denham called the development "beautiful" and "a place people can
be proud to live in."

Outdoor
Dining May

Be Expanded
by Anne Mitchell
While restaurants in Sanibel's
commercial district can have
bonus outdoor seating, those
in other areas of the island, such as the
resort district, don't have that benefit.
Now the Sanibel Planning Commission
is going to look at the ordinance, passed
several years ago, to see if and how it
could be amended to restaurants outside
the commercial district.
According to Planning Director Jim
Jordan, Robert Parks, owner of the
Twilight Cafe on West Gulf Drive, wants
to allow his customers to dine al fresco -
but the current code doesn't permit this.
Jordan said rather than look at one spe-
cific case, he wants to consider a broader
approach that would include other restau-
rants.
He told the planning commission on
Tuesday that there are probably only two
others that would be affected: Gramma
Dot's and the Mad Hatter. The planning


commission's next meeting is Tuesday,
February 23.0

Born To Be Wild
CROW Fundraiser

: :. ::. :.. '. .. :? '



Tickets are going fast for CROW's
Woodstork Art and Wine Fest to
be held on Sunday, February 28 at
Trader's Cafe from 4 to 7 p.m.
The event celebrates the birth of
CROW and the original Woodstock
Festival, both of which happened in the
same era over 40 years ago.
"Our patients are born to be wild, and
we thought having this themed event
with music from the 60s would be a great
way for our supporters to let their hair
down (literally and figuratively) and help
us return our wildlife back into the wild,"
said Susan Petersen Tucker, CROW
president.


HAPPY 94TH BIRTHDAY


Carol Rothman flashes the peace sign

Many acclaimed artists have donated
their work for the event, and most will be
available for bidding at a silent auction.
Investment grade collectibles from the
original Woodstock Festival and a rare
collection of Audubon prints never before
offered in this area will be in the silent
auction. A live auction where a few spe-
cial works such as Darryl Pottorf's paint-
ing titled Unlost Consequence, valued at
$20,000, will be up for bids.
"CROW is also pleased to announce
that the business community has gener-
ously come forward to sponsor and sup-
port the event," said Carol Rothman

Wanted, Shells,
Dead Not Alive
submitted by Kathleen Hoover, Bailey-
Matthews Shell Museum
Sanibel is often referred to as the
shelling capital of North America.
Strolling the beaches and shallow
water surrounding Sanibel and Captiva
over 300 species of shells can be dis-
covered. These treasures are what lure
many island visitors.
To protect this important economic
and biological asset, in the late 1980s,
the city of Sanibel petitioned the Florida
Marine Fisheries Commission (MFC) to
restrict live-shelling and the MFC passed a
special Sanibel Shelling Rule limiting live
collection to two specimens of any one
species per day per person. In addition,
non-residents were required to purchase
a state saltwater products fishing license.
This rule remained in effect for six years,
but it was difficult to enforce.
In 1994 the city asked MFC to estab-
lish a complete ban on live-shelling for
Sanibel beaches to one-half mile from
shore. This rule prohibits the harvest
and possession of live shellfish as well as
sand dollars, sea stars and sea urchins.
Also, all shelling was prohibited within
the waters of the J.N. "Ding" Darling
National Wildlife Refuge. A first offense
could result in a fine of $500 and up to
60 days in jail. This went into effect on
January 1, 1995. In January 2002, Lee
County proposed a county-wide ban on
the collection of all live shells. This ban


took effect March 1, 2002. The ban
remains in effect and is strictly enforced.
The first question that generally fol-
lows awareness of the live-shelling ban
is, "How can I tell if the shell is alive or
dead?" The sniff test is where you begin.
Hold the shell carefully in your hand and
take a whiff; if you experience a rather
obnoxious odor, it is highly likely that
the mollusk responsible for building the
shell is no longer living. Another method
involves placing the specimen gently at
the water's edge or in a tidal pool and
watch for any movement. If the specimen
is a gastropod (one piece whorled shell)
check to see if there is an operculum, or
trap door and if there is any movement.
There are many joys associated with
shelling beyond "the hunt" for a junonia,
lions paw, or even better, a new species.
One of them is observing live mollusks in
their natural habitat and learning more
about what form of locomotion they
employ, what they eat, which species
they fall prey to, how they reproduce and
whether they leave "trails" that help find
and identify them.
There are some "rules of the road"
if you have an interest in observing
live shells in their natural environment.
Always put the shell back where you
found it by gently placing it on the sea
floor. Gastropods should be placed with
the aperture or opening down. Do not
throw shells back into the sea as this
will cause injury and probable death. If
objects in the environment like rocks, or
branches are moved during observation,
put them back where you found them.M

League Of
Women Voters
submitted by Dr. Carolyn Gray
Fair Districting was the topic of the
Sanibel League of Women Voters
meeting on Monday, February 8 at
the Sanibel Library. Caroline Emmons-
Schramm of the League of Women
Voters of Florida (president 2003-05)
presented the case for the two Fair
Districting amendments that will appear
on the Florida ballot in November.
Its purpose s to provide clear, non-
political standards that will require dis-
tricts to be fairly drawn, compact and
community-based while preserving equal
opportunities for minority voters.
Emmons-Schramm explained district-
ing in Florida. Every 10 years, after the
US Census, the boundaries of our con-
gressional, state house and state senate
districts are redrawn. This was originally
intended to be sure that districts are
roughly equal in population to make
sure that every vote counts equally.
However, politicians from whichever
party was in charge at the time of re-
districting have been drawing up districts
that are "safe districts" for their party. In
effect, "politicians are choosing their vot-
ers rather than voters choosing the politi-
cians," remarked Emmons-Schramm.
Legislators use sophisticated comput-
ers, voter registration data and other
demographics to "pack and stack" dis-
tricts to favor the political party in power.
Currently, the only regulations the re-
districting legislators are required to follow
are: 1) the district must be contiguous and
2) every district must have roughly the
same number of people. This has resulted
in a number of districts that either stretch
across the state, from Palm Beach to Lee
County, for instance, or look like a crazy
quilt stretching across several counties.
This is difficult for constituents and is dif-
ficult for the legislator. The constituents
often don't know their legislator and the
legislator may have multiple counties and
municipalities to represent which stretch-
es them in terms of being able to provide
services needed.
Emmons-Schramm announced that
the amendments will be on the ballot
in November as Amendments 5 and 6.
For them to pass requires a 60 percent
majority of Florida voters.
To end this practice, The Florida
League of Mayors, the Florida League
of Cities and the Florida Black Caucus
of Local Black Elected Officials have all
endorsed the amendments.

FALL PREVENTION

AND BALANCE

with RACHAEL TRITAIK, PT

Tuesday, February 23 at 1:00 PM

Saint Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church Parish Hall
2304 Periwinkle Way 239-472-2173

Many factors can contribute to loss of balance as we
age, including joint problems, neurological problems,
visual and inner ear problems, weakness in the legs and reduced
endurance. Bone loss that occurs with osteoporosis can increase
the risk of fracture from seemingly minor falls. These fractures
can have a devastating impact on quality of life and the ability to
live independently.
Rachel will discuss how to minimize factors contributing
to loss of balance and thus reducing the risk of falls. She will
provide tips to improve balance and safety in your home. Please
join us for an informative and engaging discussion.

Pearl Harbor.
At the luncheon a video of the service,
including interment at Arlington National
Cemetery will be shown. The family

Spencer be given to Sanibel Community
Church or Hope Hospice.

at 1740 Periwinkle Way, next to Jerry's

ANNOUNCEMENT


A joyful day it was when Kimberly
Berg, daughter of Susen and
Jim Berg of Captiva Island,
became the wife of Eric Sanders. They
were united in marriage in Chapel
By The Sea this past fall. Many fam-
ily and friends journeyed from Illinois,
Massachusetts, California, New York,
Belgium and even Norway to help cel-
ebrate in this wonderful paradise. They
now reside in Crystal Lake, Illinois.3

Community
Program On Haiti
anibel Congregational United
Church of Christ invites the com-
munity to a program on the topic
In it for the Long Haul: The Politics
and Religion of Haiti.
Most any school child knows the old
mnemonic about Columbus sailing the
ocean blue in 1492. Some know that
he landed on Hispaniola, but many are
unaware that that land is now divided
between two countries; the Dominican
Republic and Haiti.
Recently, much attention has been
focused on Haiti due to the devastating
earthquake that hit, but those who know
Haiti's history know it is only the most
recent blow to the poorest nation in this
hemisphere.
On Thursday, February 18 and
Thursday, February 25, from 10 to
11:30 a.m, the Reverend Dr. John H.
Danner will offer a two-part presentation
at Sanibel Congregational United Church
of Christ, 2050 Periwinkle Way. Danner
will explore the rich and complex history
of this nation.
Danner is the new senior pastor at
the church. He was educated at Bradford
College, the University of Maine, and
Bangor (ME) Theological Seminary.
His PhD is in religious studies, and was
awarded by Boston University. Danner's
studies focused on American church his-
tory. He has had articles published in The
Christian Century, and he is a contribu-
tor to Touch Holiness, edited by Ruth
Duck and Maren Tirabassi. Before mov-
ing to Sanibel, Danner served as senior
pastor of the Saugatuck Congregational


Church in Westport, Connecticut.
For further information, or to reserve
your space in this course, which is free
and open to the public, call the church
office at 472-0497.4

cal supplies and tents to the Haitians.
Two thousand dollars has gone to the
Christian Missionary Alliance which rep-
resents 150 churches in the devastated
land and a similar amount was sent to a
mission in Quanniminthe on the border
of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
"They began seeing people come to
their town right after the earthquake,"
Livermon said of the residents of
Quanniminthe.
The young missionary is planning to
go to Haiti himself, with volunteers from
Sanibel Community Church. But they're
waiting for the right time because flights
in and out are restricted and they want to
be able to do as much good as possible.
The remaining money about $1,500 -
will help pay expenses for that trip.
The shirts, in children's and adult sizes,
are printed with colorful artwork done by
students at The Sanibel School depicting
Independence Day. They were donated
by the Fourth of July Parade Committee.
Ted Tyson of Sanibel, a member of
the Community Church, acted as liaison
between Livermon and Rob Lisenbee, a
member of the parade committee.
"People forget that the Haitians need
clothing as well as food and medical
supplies," said Tyson. "Everything they
owned is buried under rubble. "

Reach Out With
Aid For Haiti
by Anne Mitchell
About 300 T-shirts left over from
last year's Fourth of July Parade
on Sanibel will not go to waste.
They're on their way to Haiti to help
clothe earthquake victims.
In addition, the Sanibel Community
Church has already sent $16,000 in aid
through its missions program, said Brad
Livermon, missions-based contemporary
worship leader. He said the first donation,
$10,000, came from offerings by mem-
bers of the congregation on the Sunday
after the earthquake.
"Our pastor put a bucket in the court-
yard and the people gave $10,000, and
another $3,000 came in a week later. A
couple of days before that, our mission
team sent $3,000," Livermon said.
He said of that, $3,000 went to the
Salvation Army and another $5,000
went to a mission in St. Mark, Haiti, with
the assistance of Harold Hansen from
Shell Point. The church sent a further
$3,000 to the Nations Association in
Fort Myers which is supplying medi-

t's the fourth week of Sanibel Sea School's annual ocean celebration and the
scavenger hunts continue! The Sea School's winter fundraising event begins with
a series of Sea Fandango scavenger hunts. This year, as with last year, Lily & Co.
Jewelry Gallery is the Master sponsor. Each week a clue will be published in the
paper and posted online at sanibelseaschool.org. The first person to find the loca-
tion of the Sea Fandango token will be rewarded with a true treasure from Lily &
Co. and the winner is posted online. The prize is free to the winner and there is no
obligation. That's the spirit of this ocean celebration.
This year Sanibel Sea School's ocean celebration will culminate on February 20
with the Sea Fandango event at The Community House. Join the fun of searching,
finding, getting and giving, or just come to Sea Fandango without scavenging.
Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3 dedicated to marine conservation through experi-
ential education. All proceeds from Sea Fandango will go to scholarships and operat-
ing expenses.
So on to clue number four. Last week, we felt so bad for all the folks working and
going to school that they couldn't join the scavenger hunt early. So, we asked you to
email us to get the clue. That worked so well that young Rachel Wexler, a 6th grader
at The Sanibel School was able to play and win. Let's do that again. Email clue@

San-Cap Orchid


Society Meeting


Dendrobium orchid
ummering Your Orchids will be
the topic of the Monday, February
15 meeting of the Sanibel-
Captiva Orchid Society at St. Michael
& All Angels Episcopal Church, 2304
Periwinkle Way at 1:30 p.m. Jim
Roberts, owner of Florida SunCoast
Orchids in Bradenton, will discuss vari-
ous techniques to get orchids ready for
summer's heat and humidity both for
those who live in Florida year-round or
keep plants here while they head north.
Roberts has been a popular speaker
on Sanibel over the past several years.
He began his all-consuming passion for
growing orchids after a trip to a doctor's
office for a routine physical. While in
the office, Roberts noticed a large cat-
tleya on the physician's desk. Answering
Roberts' question, "What kind of flower is
that?" the doctor laughingly replied, "You
do NOT want to know." Unfortunately
the doctor only piqued the then college
student's curiosity and Roberts not only
began a lifelong hobby but a career in
managing and later owning orchid nurser-
ies.
Novices are encouraged to come to
the meeting at 1 p.m. to hear Deborah
Whittman discuss Orchids in Hawaii.
Participants are also encouraged to come
early to purchase plants or to do so dur-
ing intermission. Anyone with questions


or an ill orchid that needs diagnosis can
bring their plants to the meeting during
show and tell. Orchid society members
are invited to participate in a monthly
show. Ribbons are awarded for best
hybrid and best species orchids. Members
and guests are also invited to participate
in a monthly raffle. Society membership
is $20 annually, guests are $4.

Sanibel's Beloved
Crocodile: Gone
But Not Forgotten


A plaster imprint of the crocodile's front
foot taken from Janie Howland's driveway

by Anne Mitchell
They toasted her memory with
Gatorade and remembered the
good times. Sanibel's only saltwa-
ter crocodile is gone but not forgotten
- a likely victim of the prolonged and
unseasonably cold weather.
More than a hundred people gath-
ered on the porch of Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation (SCCF) last
Thursday to say farewell to the 11-foot


People gather to sign their names to the croc(
eight-inch American crocodile that some
say helped people realize that man can
live in harmony with large and, to some,
frightening animals if they give them the
respect they deserve.
For some reason, this American croc-
odile chose to live on Sanibel for nearly
30 years, far from others of her species,
establishing the island as the northern-
most limit of its range. She was moved
south a couple of times, but made her
way back.
"Where else but Sanibel would such a
beautiful but scary creature be protected
for 25 years plus," said Dee Serage of
SCCF, who found the croc dead January
26 just off one of the trails alongside the
Sanibel River.

Refuge, toasts the crocodile's memory with Gatorade
A lifesize photograph by Denny
Souers was displayed to show the croc in
all her glory, her narrow snout and pro-
truding teeth identifying her as a croco-
dile, not an alligator. Afterwards, people
were invited to sign the edge of the
photograph, which will go on permanent
display at SCCF.
Her skeletal remains, once preserved,
will have a home in the "Ding" Darling

Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center.
Paul Tritaik, refuge manager, said the
crocodile was an icon and a tourist attrac-
tion in the refuge, where she would bask
near Wildlife Drive. "We didn't give her
a name," he said, "but some refuge vol-
unteers called her 'madam.'" Tritaik, who
has spent a lot of time around alligators,
said he'd never seen an American croco-
dile before and was honored to have her
in the refuge. "She was in her element.
She was regal."
Tritaik said about a hundred crocodiles
in Florida Bay also perished during the
cold weather leaving big questions as
to what effect the loss will have on the
breeding population of this threatened
species.
Janie Howland, who spent at least
four summers with the croc resting up
under her piling home in the Sanibel
Bayous and nesting nearby, told how
she would sometimes miss appointments
because the animal was blocking her
driveway and she couldn't get her car
out. "Luckily people know (about her) so
they believed me when I called to say I
would be late because there was a croco-
dile in my driveway," she said. Howland
was an ambassador for the croc, manag-
ing to reassure even the most skittish
neighbors that she would not harm them
if left alone.
People crowded into the SCCF audi-
torium to watch a video Howland shot
of the crocodile some years ago, seeing
close-ups of her webbed rear feet and the
missing scutes at the end of her massive
tail and marveling at how much effort it
took for her to walk even short distances
on land.

Although Howland probably spent
more time than anyone in close proxim-
ity to the crocodile, many people came in
contact with her. When the audience was
asked how many people had "baby sat"
her, more than a dozen hands went up.
Said Serage, "She helped define our
community as one dedicated to living
with wildlife, even the big, beautiful scary
ones."

Blind Pass
Beach Tilled
As a requirement of the State
Department of Environmental
Protection permit for the beach
renourishment completed at Blind Pass
Beach this past summer, the beach
was tilled by tractor prior to the start
of sea turtle nesting season. This work
was done Monday to ensure that the
beach is not overly compacted and is of
the appropriate compression to enable
female sea turtles to excavate nest
chambers in the beach sand to lay their
eggs.
According to a spokesman for the
City of Sanibel, this work was done by a
contractor hired by Lee County as part
of the Blind Pass Opening Project. The
work must be done this time of the year
to avoid any interference with shorebird
nesting season, which starts February 15
and runs until July.

San-Cap Audubon Presents
Planets Of Our Solar System


Jupiter


O n the heels of his previous lectures
on the sun, moon, lunar eclipses,
the green flash and asteroids,
John Hicks returns to discuss Planets of
Our Solar System at the Sanibel-Captiva Title slide
Audubon lecture on Thursday, February
18 at 7:30 p.m. In his remarkable presentation, Hicks will pose questions such as:
Which planet has a giant spinning storm, the great Red Spot that has been
observed for more than 300 years?
How many rings are around Saturn and what makes up the rings?
Which planet has 27 moons?
He will then answer these questions and many more utilizing exquisitely beautiful
photos done by a master of astronomical photography.
Hicks, a senior landscape architect from Ontario, Canada, who visits Sanibel every
year, is an amateur astronomer who has designed and built refracting and reflecting
telescopes. His interests outside of landscape architecture are managing his 20-acre
forest and wildlife area (under a managed forest agreement) and studying astronomy.
He has a professional observatory (self designed) which he markets to astronomers
worldwide and has written a book entitled Observatory Design and Construction.

The Schoolhouse is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way


He recently published a new book entitled Building a Roll-off-Roof Observatory: A
Complete Guide to Design and Construction, Springer Publishing, New York, 2008,
which is available on Amazon. Utilizing his telescopes and observatory Hicks has
become proficient in solar photography, successfully capturing solar and lunar eclipses
in addition to the Sanibel green flash. Calling upon the best of his enormous photo
collection, Hicks will provide the audience a different perspective of our solar system.
He may also revisit the mysterious green flash and provide an update on the science
of global warming, both topics discussed in past lectures. Also incorporated into his
presentation will be suggestions on astronomic photographic techniques.
This is the seventh of eight lectures to be held this year on Thursday evenings
at 7:30 p.m. at The Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way. As always, all are
welcome to attend. Doors open at 6:30, and parking is available at The Community
House and at The Schoolhouse Theater. A $5 donation is appreciated with proceeds
being used to promote conservation on Sanibel and in Florida. For additional infor-
mation, call Elaine Jacobson at 395-1878 or visit the San-Cap Audubon Web site at

CROW Case Of The Week:
Wild Turkey
by Brian Johnson
T he wild turkey who arrived at CROW on November
17 last year, just days before Thanksgiving, has been
Sa Jo released.
It was only the second wild turkey CROW Veterinarian Dr. PJ
Deitschel had seen at the clinic since taking over in 1998. Staff
were elated by the success story, as the turkey arrived in grave
condition from a probable dog attack. The bird had four puncture
wounds across his back,
one of which fractured
his pelvis.
For the first two
weeks the turkey sat quietly in his cage, unable
to walk much. With many of his tail feathers
pulled out, he had a forlorn look. Staff cleaned ,'i
the wounds, applied SSD cream, and changed
his bandage daily. Pain medications, herbs and ,
antibiotics facilitated his recovery.
On December 3 staff transferred him to
the large walk-in cage in the Bailey quiet
room. "He perked up then," said Dr. Amber
McNamara. "He stood up, making use of the
space. We didn't have to handle him every
time we cleaned his cage."
The wild turkey dined on duck chow, seeds, 4 i
scrambled eggs, and worms.
By the middle of December some new
feathers were starting to grow in as the
wounds healed. "They looked nice," said Dr.
Amber.
Next staff moved him outdoors to the
Cannon Flight Cage. "He liked to peck the
dirt, though he still did not move very much,
you could still see the lameness," said Dr.
Amber. Wild turkey on his perch

One month later they took him to the Large Flight Cage, where he thrived. He
spent much of his day preening or relaxing on a shelf; eventually, he flapped up to the
25-foot high perch to "roost." His gait improved, and his spirits brightened.
"When he vocalized you could hear the turkey gobble all around the property that
was a treat for everyone," said Dr. Amber.
On February 4 the wild turkey was released back to Alva to a property belonging
to a friend of CROW's. The bird will have plenty of acreage to roam, and other wild
turkeys are seen regularly on the land.

Low Water Basics
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
t's great to see
that fishing is
slowly getting
back to normal out
in the sound. We
are still experienc-
ing cold fronts
every week to 10
days but they do
not have close to
the punch of the epic cold temperatures
of January. Action out on the bay has
really picked up with lots of trout and
redfish in the mix. Most of the fish I am
catching are on the small side right now
but what they lack in size they make up
for in sheer numbers.
The low tides of winter really offer
some great fishing opportunities out
there. Big minus tides are caused by a
big or new moon and add in a north or
northeast wind and the water can get
super low out there. If you know where
to look during these low water conditions
you can find some great winter action.


There are many different areas to target
on low water. Making the choice just
depends on the weather conditions and
which kind of fishing you prefer.
During winter months the water in
the sound is as clear as it gets all year.
Combine this clear water with super low
tides and we have prime conditions for
shallow water sightfishing. Push poling
or wading are the two basic ways to go
if you want to do what I call "hunt fish."
Fish are very spooky in shallow water
and need to be approached with stealth
if you want to be succsesful at this. Sure,
you have to put in your time and learn
which flats are productive and hold fish
but nothing is more satisfying than land-
ing a well placed cast at a tailing redfish
or laid-up trout and watching the fish eat
the bait.
The best conditions to fish these shal-
low areas are on low wind days with
bright sun and no clouds. The higher the
sun the better your visibility.
Weedless baits, either soft plastic or
weedless rigged live shrimp, are best for
this shallow water action. Gold spoons
work great for this along with powerbaits
rigged on a bass-style weedless bait hook.
Some things I look for to give me a better


idea if a flat is going to be productive
or not are wading birds/feeding birds
and mullet working. Generally flats
that have more life and bait on them
hold more gamefish.
As you slowly check out and
explore a flat, look for the natural
tidal channels, drop-offs and sand
holes in the flat to hold laid-up fish.
These channels and holes only need
to be a few inches deeper than any-
thing else to be used by the fish. As
the water slowly comes up higher
with the tide, gamefish will push up
further onto the flat to feed. I gener-
ally start out on the lowest part of the
tide by working the deeper edges of
the flat until the tide starts to flood in
and I can move up more on top of it.
Boat basins and canals are not
often the prettiest places to fish but
can and do hold tons of fish all winter
long. Low tides are a great time to
give these areas a try. Deep dead-end
canals and deeper channels let the
water stay warm longer and are areas
the fish really bunch up in. Seawalls
in canals work like solar panels and
warm up the water during the day.
Having a water temperature gauge
on your boat is a real fish finder this
time of year. Three to five degrees
warmer water temperature than any
other water around can make all the T
difference in finding active fish. I like
to target these areas on the coldest
days just after a cold front has passed
through. They are also great places to
hide from that strong north wind of win-
ter.

Natural mangrove channels and deep-

high and dry flat in close proximity are a
winter time hot spot. As the flat dries out
on the low tide, all of the fish from the
flat have to fall off into the deeper water
or channel. Add in some good tide move-
ment either the last part of the outgoing
or the first part of the incoming tide and
the fish will feed. The "Ding" Darling
Refuge is loaded with shorelines and
channels like this.
Deep holes and channels around and
through oyster bars can be very produc-
tive too. Any place there is an oyster bar
there is always really good tide flow and
usually a ton of life. Learning the layout
of the bar and how the fish relate to the
bar and the stage of the tide is the key to
catching these fish.
Get out and take advantage of these
winter low tides. If you have never tried
shallow water sightfishing before it will
only take stalking and catching one
spooky redfish to be hooked.
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

Society for the past two decades, presented the refuge with an anhinga
carved by Jim Sprankle.
Kloosterman on February 5 gave the wood carving in memory of her husband,
Win, also a staunch volunteer for "Ding" Darling. The anhinga is a gift from the
Kloosterman family.
"We are very pleased to display this work of art in the Education Center," said
Refuge Manager Paul Tritaik. "It's a fitting tribute to Win and Marilyn and their contri-
butions over the years.


Historical Museum Benefit
ily & Co. Jewelers is a sponsor of the Then and Now on Sanibel event to ben-
efit the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. The luncheon includes a style
show featuring the jewelry of Marya Dabrowski.
Dabrowski's couture collection is offered exclusively at Lily & Co., featuring award-
winning ensembles of beautiful colored stones set in 18-karat gold and sterling silver.
Each piece is woven of a myriad of colorful gemstones in a number of complexly
clustered structures that are the perfect adornment for the sophisticated and fashion
conscious.
The fundraiser will take place at the Captiva Island Yacht Club, 15903 Captiva
Drive on February 16 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased by con-
tacting Gayle Pence at 472-0433.0


ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 12, 2010 27
The anhinga will
be perched at the
entrance, where -
visitors will see it
the moment they
walk through the
front door.
Sprankle had
long wanted to
carve an anhinga in
the pose featured in
the "Ding" Darling
logo, and he did
so last March and .
April.
"Oh, I think
it's great, and
this is the perfect V
place for it," said
Kloosterman as the
carving was moved
into its new loca-
tion.
"I'm proud
to have it here,
simple as that," Anhinga carving
said Sprankle. The
Education Center
also is home to Sprankle carvings of an osprey, yellow-crowned night heron and a tri-
colored heron.
Hahn Construction donated the wooden pedestal underneath the anhinga, and
John Grey Painting volunteered to lacquer the wood and match it to the colors in the
Education Center.0

Nationally Recognized Painter
To Give Workshop On Sanibel


Paul George oil painting


The Sanibel Captiva Art League will offer workshops from March 8 through
12 by artist Paul George. George will give a plein air oil painting workshop
at various island locations on March 8, 9 and 10, and an in-studio watercolor
workshop on March 10 and 11 at the Sanibel Public Library.
He will be visiting Sanibel from Gloucester, Massachusetts, where he lives.
Gloucester, situated on Cape Ann, has been a well-known home to a colony of
American landscape and marine painters for over a century. George is primarily a


landscape painter. He has a BS from Northwestern University and studied at the MFA
School in Boston. He is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society and is
a member of the Cape Cod Art Association and New England Art Association. He has
won important national awards for his paintings and his work is collected in the US
and Europe.
The three day oil painting workshop is an opportunity to learn how to paint out-
doors (en plein air) in what is known as direct painting or "alla prima" painting, the
goal of which is to finish a painting in one outing. Painting in such a manner is meant
to create a spontaneous and impressionistic image of what one is painting, whether it
is a bridge or cottage or stand of trees, without the laborious modifications or addition
of detail in a studio that can ruin such art work.
George's Web site is www.pgeorge.com. For more information about the work-
shops call Karen Berger at 395-2275 or Peter Zell at 395-2122 or log onto www.
sancapart.com.5:



Last Chance For Farce
At The Schoolhouse
T Tnnecessary Farce, which has been playing at The Schoolhouse Theater since
U early January, will close this Saturday, February 13. The show was originally
set to close on February 6 but, due to popular demand, the run was extend-
ed.
This rollicking show brings two inexperienced police officers together on a mission
to catch the mayor in an embezzlement scandal. However, the accountant involved
is also "involved" with one of the police officers. Not to mention the local mafia, the
Scottish Clan, might kill anyone who tries to find the missing money. Add in the may-
or's wife, the head of Town Hall security, and two motel rooms and you have a plot
that puts all of these characters on a path for disaster.
Unnecessary Farce stars a bevy of talented actors; Schoolhouse business manager
Dave Yudowitz, and house manager Jennifer Smith, local actor James Lane, LA resi-
dents Marcus Kiehl and Mindy Montavon-Kiehl, returning actor Matthew Edwards, and
Schoolhouse newcomer Kay Francis.
Unnecessary Farce is sponsored by 'Tween Waters Inn.
Call the box office today for tickets, 472-6862. The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse
Theater is at 2200 Periwinkle Way. Visit the Web site and sign up for e-newsletters to

Reception


Bill and Laverne Phillips
Chamber Orchestra Kremlin will
grace the stage at BIG ARTS on
Thursday, February 25, 8 p.m.,
with a pre-concert reception celebrating
the life of William "Bill" Phillips. All are
invited to attend the sculpture dedication
ceremony in Boler Garden at 6:30 p.m.
and share in a time of remembrance
with the Phillips family.
Chamber Orchestra Kremlin has
earned national and international recogni-
tion as one of Russia's leading ensembles.
Comprising some of Russia's finest young
string players, the orchestra has carved a
niche for itself under the creative baton


I W
Chamber Orchestra Kremlin
of Music Director Misha Rachlevsky.
Chamber Orchestra Kremlin's warmth
and high energy create addictive perfor-
mances that stay with listeners long after
the last note has been played.
Of their performance, a 2008 New
York Times review stated, "Misha
Rachlevsky, the ensemble's music direc-
tor, elicited warm, full-blooded and virtuo-
sic playing with colorfully-shaped, gleam-
ing phrases." The Kremlin will have the
audience choose the second half of their
program from several selections.
The concert celebrates the life of
founding BIG ARTS member Bill Phillips,
who passed away in August 2008. He is


survived by his wife of 65 years, Laverne.
Both husband and wife were instrumental
in the creation of BIG ARTS.
As a philanthropist, Bill supported and
volunteered for the arts and other non-
profit organizations, serving on nearly
30 public service and business boards.
During its formative stages, he served for
13 years as treasurer of BIG ARTS, lead-
ing efforts in the construction of Schein
Performance Hall, as well as Phillips
Gallery. The couple graciously lent their
name and support for the Laverne and
Bill Phillips Endowment Campaign. As
a long-standing member of the board of
directors, Bill served in many capacities.

Photography
ing in ethereal, yet organic forms which
look as though they come from another
world.
Photography is not a new medium
for Century; he has been experimenting
with the process of developing images for
many years, incorporating photographic
techniques in his etching works. He says,
"I love to see people's reaction when
they see the images, each person tells
me a story about what they are seeing,
the pictures seem to emerge from their
unconscious mind."
The talk will be in the Phillips Gallery,
900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel,
ARTSalon is an opportunity to talk
with artists to better understand their
creative process. Bring lunch if you wish
to continue informal discussion in Boler

Island Cinema and BIG ARTS Academy Award Series
Nine
by Priscilla Friedersdorf
T he series of films which
have been nominated for
SAcademy Awards contin-
ues at 1 p.m. on Wednesday,
February 18 at the Island
Cinema. This week's film is I
Nine, an extravaganza from
Rob Marshall, who also directed
the award winning film Chicago.
After It's Complicated, which
amused most women, we now
have something for the men.
A bevy of beauties of all ages Penelope Cruz in Nine
and all looking gorgeous per-
form individual routines: Marion Cotillard, Judi
Dench, Fergie, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman,
Sophia Loren, and Penelope Cruz, who has
been nominated for an Oscar as best supporting
actress for her role. Cruz should have received
an Oscar nomination for Broken Embraces but
then how much dark-eyed loveliness can we
stand?
Based on Federico Fellini's film 8U which
was also made into a Broadway musical, this
treatment is a visual feast but otherwise a bit of
a bore. Daniel Day Lewis is a superb actor but
becomes tiresome with his thin role as Guido
(Fellini) a lecherous, chain smoking impresario.
Focus on the women scantily clad and belting
out tunes which describe their lives or attitudes.
The film is rated PG 13. Tickets are $7.50
and can be purchased at the Island Cinema on
the day of the showing or in advance.
Everyone is invited to attend a discussion of Daniel Day Lewis and Marion Cotillard
the film led by dancer and theatre columnist in Nine
Marcia Wagner at 3:30 p.m. at The Sanibel
Bean following the film. The Bean is located at 2240 Periwinkle Way.M

Speakers To Talk
About Art And
Grizzly Bears
Watercolor painter David King
and basket weaver Sheila King
will speak at the general meet-
ing of the Sanibel-Captiva Art League
at The Community House, 2173
Periwinkle Way, on February 18. The
meeting begins at 1 p.m. and refresh-
ments will be served. All are welcome.
David paints transparent watercolor
mostly on nature-based themes, and
Sheila has been weaving baskets for 30
years and was the subject of a PBS docu-
mentary in 2006.
The Kings will talk about their shared
transformative experience as artists in res-
idence at Alaska's Denali National Park,
in an arts program sponsored by the
U.S. Department of Interior. They lived
43 miles off the road, in the woods, in a
100-year-old cabin. Their nearest neigh-


bor was a mother grizzly bear with her
three cubs, and they had occasional visits
by packs of wolves. The government was
interested in the relationship between the
wilderness and art. After a stringent appli-
cation process, all the Kings had to give
the National Parks Service was a lecture,
a painting and a basket in exchange for a
profound adventure.
The Kings' remarkable story highlights
the interesting and off-the-beaten-paths
that are available to artists who seek the
unusual for their art.4

36 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 12, 2010

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF FEBRUARY 15, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) All that
flattery and fawning shouldn't affect any
decision you have to make. Keep your focus
on the facts and ignore all the hyperbole,
especially if it gets uncomfortably personal.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your
Bovine instincts are on the mark about that
"favor" you're being asked to do. Agree to
nothing unless you get a full explanation --
which you would check out first, of course.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A some-
what unsettled recent period should give way
to a smoother time going through the week.
Use this quieter time to catch up on matters
you might have had to let slide.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Feeling
a little confused is understandable with all
those mixed messages. Take time to list the
questions you have. Then present them and
insist on answers that make sense.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Cupid can
be very helpful for Lions seeking a love con-
nection. The chubby cherub also brings warm
and fuzzy feelings to paired Leos and Leonas
who already share a special love line.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Travel is favored this week, whether you'll
be globe-trotting or taking a trip to a nearby
getaway. You might be surprised (or maybe
not) by who wants to be your traveling com-
panion.
LI BRA (September 23 to October 22)
Getting advice on your next business-related
move is a good idea, but only if your advisers
are trustworthy. Get references that you can
check out before you make any decisions.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November
21) Getting a boost in your self-esteem is
one benefit that comes with a job well done.
There are other plusses as well, including


being noticed by all the right people. Good
luck.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Make time to deal with family
matters, especially where they concern your
elderly kinfolk. Being there for them from the
start can help resolve problems sooner rather
than later.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Getting a project started can often be dif-
ficult. But the good news is that you won't
want for lack of assistance from colleagues
who would like to work with you. So, let
them!
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
A lot of work-related issues might be raised
this week, and you need to be prepared for
whatever comes along. Things should be
easier when it comes to matters in your pri-
vate life.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
What might appear to be a very much
unwanted change in your life right now could
turn out to be a very welcome event after all.
Give yourself a chance to see where it might
take you.
BORN THIS WEEK: You exercise your
strong leadership qualities well, which is why
people believe in you and feel reassured by
you.


On Feb. 20, 1792, President George
Washington signs legislation creating the
U.S. Postal Service. The federally funded
postal services included 75 regional post
offices and 2,400 miles of postal routes. The
cost of sending a letter ranged from 6 cents
to 12 cents.
On Feb. 18, 1885, Mark Twain publish-
es his novel "The Adventures of Huckleberry
Finn." Twain (the pen name of Samuel
Clemens) first introduced Huck Finn as the


best friend of Tom Sawyer, hero of his tre-
mendously successful novel "The Adventures
of Tom Sawyer" (1876).
On Feb. 17, 1915, after encountering a
severe snowstorm, the German Zeppelin L-4
crash-lands in the North Sea near the Danish
coastal town of Varde. One month earlier, the
huge airship had taken part in the first-ever
air bombing raid on Britain.
On Feb. 15, 1933, in Miami, Giuseppe
Zangara shoots and fatally wounds Anton
Cermak, the mayor of Chicago. Zangara pled
guilty to the murder and died in Florida's
electric chair on March 20. Today, such a
swift outcome would be practically unheard
of, particularly where the death penalty is
concerned.
On Feb. 19, 1954, the Ford Thunderbird
prototype is bor. The T-Bird was a scaled-
down Ford built for two. It came with a
removable fiberglass hardtop and a convert-
ible canvas roof. With its V-8 and sporty
looks, the T-Bird was an image car costing
$2,944.
SOn Feb. 21, 1965, black nationalist
leader Malcolm X is assassinated while giv-
ing a speech at the Audubon Ballroom in
Harlem in New York City. Malcolm X, born
Malcolm Little, had split from the Nation of
Islam almost a year before and had escaped
several other attempts on his life.
On Feb. 16, 1979, the Bee Gees receive
the Grammy for Best Album of 1978 for
"Saturday Night Fever" and also win the Best
Pop Group award. The group had dominated
the charts in late 1977 and 1978 with three
consecutive No. 1 hits from the "Saturday
Night Fever" album.


SIt was American writer Cullen
Hightower who made the following sage
observation: "Laughing at our mistakes can


lengthen our own life. Laughing at someone
else's can shorten it."
If you were asked to name the north-
ernmost of the United States, I'm sure you'd
have no trouble naming Alaska. And you
probably also know that Alaska is the west-
ernmost state of the union. You might be
surprised, however, to learn that Alaska is
also the [SET ITAL]easternmost[END ITAL]
state. Yep. The Aleutian Island chain crosses
the International Dateline, placing a few of
the islands in the Far East.
Thanks to the fact that their eyes are
placed on the sides of their heads, rabbits can
see behind themselves without turning their
heads.
In the town of Arcadia, Calif., there is
a law on the books that grants peacocks the
legal right of way when crossing any street or
driveway.
Those who study such things claim that
there are 293 different ways to make change
for a dollar.
In 2002, a research firm conducted a
poll on Americans' beliefs about the exis-
tence of alien life in the universe. It seems
that a whopping 68 percent of us feel that the
U.S. government knows about alien life but
refuses to publicize that knowledge.
The Russian Space Agency has a full-
fledged space tourism program -- and a popu-
lar one, at that. Despite the $20 million price
tag, all the available trips were fully booked
by (wealthy) civilians in 2009.
If you and your spouse are like the aver-
age modem married couple, you spent more
than $2,500 on photos and videos of your
wedding.

The Sally-Jane Heit Show Is Coming
T he multi-talented Sally-Jane Heit,
singer, actor, writer and comedian,
will perform live at The Community
House on Wednesday February 24 at
7:30 p.m. Sanibel's own actress, whose
career has spanned the theater, televi-
sion and film, is presenting her one
woman show entitled Before I Forget...
A Memoir with Music. This show will
encompass her stories and remembrances ..
of a lifetime, drawn from her experiences,
collaborations and connections with peo-
ple she has met along the way.
Songs will help tell the story. Some are
familiar, some have been written for her to
demonstrate the love and laughter that will
resonate with all of us. Accompanying her
will be Uel Wade on piano, as he has done
in past productions of her one woman
show, when they worked together in New
York.
Also, visiting from New York, will her
long-time friend Daniela Varon, the cre- Sally Jane Heit
ative consultant on this production.
Heit trained at the New York High School for Performing Arts, Hunter College and
Yale Drama School. She raised three daughters, and says now they are raising her.
Her credits include movies, television, Broadway (on and off), regional theater, tour-
ing companies and cabaret. She left her life in New York behind recently to move to
Sanibel.
Heit reflects, "I came to Sanibel as a tourist many years ago and through the years
it stayed with me. Like so many of us islanders, I started to rent on Sanibel. First
a month, then two months, then three months, and last year, I bought a house...
Hooray. I sing now with the Island Jazz Dance Band with Harry Reiner and Tom
Cooley and the gang. I also sing with a group called the Dixielanders, who have been
playing at the Historical Village; it has all been such a joy. The secret to my happiness
is that I get up in the morning...check my pulse... it's working. It doesn't get much
better than that. This perspective doesn't rule out spontaneity or vivacity."

BIG ARTS Is
Swingin' This
Saturday Night
Vince Giordano and The
Nighthawks bring their classic big-
band sounds to BIG ARTS Schein
Performance Hall at 8 p.m. Saturday,
February 13.
In 30 years as a bandleader, Giordano
has become the authority on recreating
the sounds of '20s 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. Giordano
was described by one critic as a "poet of
the jazz repertory frozen by time... the
authenticity of the music coupled with
his first-hand knowledge of the original
material provides him with insights, expe-
riences, 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 featured 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
students $15.

As a foil to Irene's charmed life, enter comic actor Gad Elmaleh with his sad, hang-

Priceless, filmed in 2008, is a winner from start to finish; the acting, the dialogue,
the clothes, the scenery and the wry humor. There are sexual innuendos but it is all
discreet and inoffensive. A perfect Valentine for BIG ARTS filmgoers.
Refreshments, including Valentine chocolates, will be served after the film on the
Gainer Veranda. Priscilla Friedersdorf will introduce the film and lead the discussion.
Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at BIG ARTS in advance or on the evening of

Madden Day
At Florida Rep


John Madden of Captiva
aturday, February 13 is John
and Marjorie Madden Day at the
Florida Repertory Theatre.
The Maddens have contributed enor-
mously to Florida Rep's outreach and
education programs over the past 12
years through Madden Charities, and
on Saturday Madden and over 40 of his
guests will have VIP status for the 2 p.m.


"In the 20th century, a visual canon
was established for Caribbean art that
focused on male artists making iconic
paintings defining and illustrating sweep-
ing issues of newly emergent national
identity," said Fay. "In the 21st century,
women artists from the region are pro-
ducing intensely personal interpretations
of Caribbean heritage in a range of media
including photography, video, perfor-
mance, mixed media, sculpture and instal-
lation of art. These works highlight an
acute awareness of the social and psycho-
logical complexities of this post-colonial
landscape, whether as perspectives on
island life or reports from the diaspora."
FGCU's ArtLab will also open the
same night featuring the textile works of
artists Muffy Clark Gill and Nuch Owen in
an exhibition of their work titled Dyeing
Arts: Batiks and Silks.

Living Sanibel: A Nature Guide

To Sanibel & Captiva Islands


by Priscilla Friedersdorf
How to describe author Charles
Sobczak? Sanibel's renaissance
writer, the island's most singu-
larly inquiring mind. Not for Sobczak
the lure of repetitious formulaic themes.
He has delved through his writings
into many subjects: the end of life
on this island with Six Mornings On
Sanibel; foretold shady practices involv-
ing commercial real estate scammed
by government officials in Way Under
Contract; and recounted his own family
history without fear of being the pariah
at reunions with Chain of Fools. Now
with Living Sanibel, another total depar-
ture for him wildlife from a completely
new perspective a thorough, well-
researched, unique, yet sensitive personal
accounting of birds, animals, insects and

plants; our native island abundance.
Sobczak in a recent interview gave two
reasons for writing this book, "First, for
us, for them; all the plants and animals
that don't speak, there is so much we
don't know about them, and second, for
the inspiration I received from a second
edition of The Nature of Things on
Sanibel by Sanibel Naturalist George
Campbell purchased shortly after I arrived
on Sanibel in 1985." He recalls in the
foreword, "I came to appreciate the fact
that Sanibel and Captiva are not just spits
of sandy beaches and swaying palms, but
are two tiny arks filled to overflowing with
life... microcosms of all life on earth..."
He quotes an article from National
Geographic which listed Sanibel and
Captiva as ninth on the list of the most
endangered natural environments in
North America and warns that our islands
are "being loved to death".
We gain a new appreciation of the
unique aspects of our islands; 291 species
have been observed here or "just under
30 percent of all the birds found in North
America." Sobczak has divided the sec-
tion on birds into resident (50) and migra-
tory birds (55) and includes a list of the
291 species at the end of the migratory


chapter with Accidentals, Vagrants and
Casuals noted. His comprehensive detail
on each variety of bird is astonishing,
"[the White Pelican] can be seen regularly
off the third culvert along Wildlife Drive...
especially during a midwinter low tide."


Charles Sobczak will have a
debut signing of his new book,
Living Sanibel: A Nature Guide
to Sanibel & Captiva Islands,
at SCCF Wednesday, February
17, from 4 to 6 p.m. Wine and
cheese will be served and 50
percent of each sale will ben-
efit SCCF.


We all have our favorite wild creature
and will turn there first; we learn the life
span of the marsh rabbit (seven years),
how it survives and that because it swims
is most in danger from alligators but
"appears to be adapting to the automo-
bile".
Sobcjak includes an informative
section on Reptiles and Amphibians.
"Florida", he reminds us, "leads the
United States in the number of native
reptiles and amphibians living within its
borders." His chapter begins with alliga-
tors and crocodiles and some fearsome
photos of same and in descending order
concludes 70 pages later with the tropical
house gecko and the little squirrel treefrog
which is in danger of extinction.
Shells, fish, butterflies and bugs, yes,
even the Florida stinking roach and the
American cockroach "...a survivor, able
to stand all manner of lethal doses of
chemicals... makes the future secure for
this enduring insect." Sobcjak does have
an amusing way with words.
The final chapter of this comprehen-
sive book describes and enumerates The
Plants of Sanibel and Captiva. Sobcjak


writes, "Without plants, not a single liv-
ing creature in this book could survive."
Indigenous and exotics plants on our
islands number... near 2,500 species,
second only to insects in diversity..." He
urges us to plant or encourage native
vegetation in our yards; saying, "a lawn
is a monoculture desert... planting natives
helps every living organism on the
island."
This is undoubtedly the definitive vol-
ume on wildlife and the flora and fauna
of our islands. Each chapter of the 500-
page Living is beautifully illustrated with
650 maps, diagrams and color photos,
many taken by Sobczak, his son, Blake
and other exceptional photographers.
Blake Sobczak's two-page color preface
photo of a crocodile is particularly aston-
ishing.
Sobczak will have a debut signing of
Living Sanibel on the deck at Sanibel-

A Longer
Writer's Read
by Di Saggau
O often some of the talented island
writers are not able to read
their pieces during the annual
December or March Writers' Reads
at BIG ARTS because they are longer
in length than the guidelines per-
mit. Here's the good news. Monday,
February 22, from 10 a.m. to noon,
in the downstairs meeting room at the
Sanibel Library, a number of writers will
delight the audience with their writing
pieces that vary in length from six to 10
minutes.
Titles include On the Bike Path,
Busy Corner, The Word of God, Peter
Pan Child, Callaloo Soup, The Case
of the Small Uterus, Mama Carmen
Suite, Important People I've Met in
Washington, DC, and Whiskey, all
written by members of the five writer's
groups on island. You can tell by the titles
that it'll be an interesting read.
The event is free and open to all writ-
ers, aspiring writers and the general pub-
lic. That includes anyone vacationing in
the area who would enjoy hearing some
talented writers read their pieces. Hope
to see you there. If you have any ques-
tions call Di Saggau at 466-4707 or Joe
Pacheco or 472-1280.'

February Book Discussions

At Sanibel Public Library


R leaders are invited to discuss the Fiction Book Group selection Olive
Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout, the focus of the Wednesday, February 24 book
discussion meeting at the Sanibel Public Library. The 2 p.m. meeting is free
and open to the public.
Olive Kitteridge is a series of linked stories that revolve around Olive and her fam-
ily and world. She is a retired school teacher in a small coastal town in Maine, and
the book explores her diverse roles in many lives, from her family to a lounge singer.
Strout won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in fiction for this work.
The group discussion will be held in the library ground floor meeting room across
from the elevator (Meeting Room 4). It is preferable to come having read the book to
be able to join in the lively discussion, but all are welcome. If you have questions, call
the library at 472-2483.
Strout will be speaking as part of the Author's Series presented by the Sanibel
Public Library through the sponsorship of the Sanibel Public Library's Foundation. Her
presentation at the library will be on Thursday, March 11 at 7 p.m., and is a ticketed
program with a reception following.
The Non-fiction Book Discussion Group will meet on Thursday, February 25 at 2
p.m. to discuss Katyn: A Crime Without Punishment by Wojciech Materski.
The 14,500 Polish army officers, police, gendarmes, and civilians taken prisoner
by the Red Army when it invaded eastern Poland in September 1939 were held in
three special NKVD camps and executed at three different sites in spring 1940, of
which the one in the Katyn Forest is the most famous. Another 7,300 prisoners held
in NKVD jails in the Ukraine and Belarus were also shot at this time, and many others

disappeared without trace. The murder of these Poles is among the most monstrous
mass murders undertaken by any modern government. Three leading historians of the
NKVD massacres of Polish prisoners of war at Katyn, Kharkov, and Tver now sub-
sumed under "Katyn" present 122 documents selected from the published Russian
and Polish volumes credited by Natalia S. Lebedeva and Wojciech Materski. The docu-
ments, with introductions and notes by Anna M. Cienciala, detail the Soviet killings,
the elaborate cover-up, the admission of the truth, and the Katyn question in Soviet/
Russian-Polish relations up to the present.4


Special Events

With Library Staff
T he talented staff of the Sanibel

Shadow's Pack: a Wolf Pack
Revisited
Wessels has been employed by the

tation given last year on the wolf pack
at the International Wolf Center in Ely,
Minnesota and her personal experiences
as a "wolf nanny." Pups Aidan and
Denali have matured into adult wolves
- each having gained more than 100
pounds since she held and bottle-fed
them. Wessels will talk about how they
have developed their own personalities
and how they fit into the center's existing
wolf pack as young adults.

Committee of the Islands gathered at (incumbent), Dick Curtin, Armand B
BIG ARTS Thursday evening to celebrate
COTI's 35th anniversary.
The celebration was held in the Phillips Gallery and garden areas at BIG ARTS,
where the guests had food and wine and heard music by the Island Jazz Band, as they
mingled and heard remarks and presentations touching on COTI's history and pur-
pose.
To help commemorate the occasion, COTI's board of directors honored Milena

Eskew is also unique in that she was a signatory to the group's articles of incorporation
on July 21, 1975.

Around The Islands With Anne
Love Is In The Air As Island Merchants
Help You Celebrate Valentine's Day
by Anne Mitchell
Love may make the world go 'round, but this year practicality may be the key
ingredient when it comes to Valentine's gifts.
The National Retail Federation predicts that personal and practical gifts like
sweaters and clothing will be up there with sexier items such as jewelry for sweethearts.
The good news for retailers is that total spending should be around $17.6 billion,
3.3 percent higher than last year, and that consumers are planning to spend more on
small gifts for friends and family.
The federation says couples will spend an average of $63.34 on gifts for each other
which is a bit down from last year's average of $67.22. Men surveyed will spend about
twice as much as women.
More than 35 percent of consumers will have an evening out probably dinner.
Which brings me to island restaurants, many of which are putting out the red carpet
for couples. Here are some of them:
Old Captiva House at 'Tween Waters Inn on Captiva, has stunning views of the


n Harries, Wayne Ponader, COTI Incorporator Milena Eskew, Mike Gillespie, Jim Lavelle
all; front row: Jack Thomas and Larry Schopp
Seven past COTI presidents were also in attendance, as well as current president
Jim Lavelle, all of whom were recognized and thanked for their efforts on behalf of the
organization and the island community.
COTI was founded by Eskew and others who had helped incorporate Sanibel as
an independently governed city within Lee County. Their efforts were in response to
county development plans that envisioned Sanibel with a population of 90,000.

tions to the first 100 sweethearts on February 14. If that doesn't grab you, maybe the

risk of having an accident by four
times, the same risk as a drunk driver,
and texting while driving increases
the risk of an accident by eight times,

Directors have launched the No Phone
Driver campaign to raise awareness.
Teenagers across Florida will encour-
age their own members, school mates,
family and the public to sign a pledge to
be a No Phone Driver, to stop risking the
lives of everyone on the road, including
themselves.
Junior Civitan is a community service
club organization of 12,000 teen volun-
teers in 400 clubs in the USA, Canada,
Europe, Asia and Africa, helping seniors,

6B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 12, 2010
First in a series

Today's

Philanthropy,

Tomorrow's Hope
by Arlene Knox, Director of
Relationships, Good Neighbor
Community Foundation of
Sanibel-Captiva
Consider "Ben." He is single man
with no family. In December of
2008 his doctor found a large
tumor on his colon, and he had surgery
to remove the tumor and had a colos-
tomy. He had no medical insurance.
When he returned home, he needed
help with food and money to pay his
rent and utilities. He had used all of his
savings and could not go back to work
for six weeks. He did not know what to
do or where to get help. A friend called
FISH (Friends in Service Here). A repre-
sentative from FISH came to his home
and talked to him about medical, food,
and transportation assistance. FISH
appealed for funding from a local fund
to help him get back on his feet.
Consider a struggling college student.
In 2005, the City of Sanibel Employee
Dependent Scholarship Fund was cre-
ated to assist dependents of Sanibel city
employees to attend a college or univer-
sity.
Consider the island wildlife. In 2000,
an agency endowment fund was created
for the Clinic for Rehabilitation of Wildlife
(CROW). This endowment fund was cre-
ated to help the agency maintain a long-
term outlook on building a sustainable


future.
Consider Hurricane Charley. This dev-
astating event caused millions of dollars
of losses for all of Southwest Florida, but
particularly for the island communities.
Funds were made immediately available
to assist disaster nonprofits as they pro-
vided food, water, and tarps to stunned
residents.
Now consider this. The unifying
nonprofit organization that links each
of these funding success stories is the
quiet, behind-the-scenes Good Neighbor
Community Foundation of Sanibel-
Captiva (GNCFSC). Through a variety
of endowed funds and grant cycles, the
Good Neighbor Community Foundation
of Sanibel-Captiva provides impactful and
sustainable funding to ultimately improve
all facets of island living.
The GNCFSC, a division of
the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation, is comprised of 14 local
advisory board members who meet quar-
terly to strategically discuss the best use
of endowed funding for island needs.
Donors may establish endowed funds
that will benefit the needs of Sanibel and
Captiva islands and beyond. In addition,
each year, the division reviews grant
applications and awards funding to those
agencies that propose valuable programs
and services for the islands.
What is a community foundation?
Simply put, it is a 501(c)3 nonprofit
public charity that provides community
funding to nonprofit organizations and
community leadership within a specified
geographic region.
Community foundations have three
core functions. First, they work with
donors to establish endowed funds for


community needs like human services,
the environment, the arts, animal welfare,
education, disaster assistance, and health.
Second, they are expert builders, stew-
ards, and managers of endowed funds for
long-term and sustainable growth. Third,
they provide funding to nonprofit organi-
zations through grants, scholarships, and
fund distributions.
Community foundations differ from
other nonprofits in that most nonprofits
assist a specific cause or group of people.
For example, the mission of BIG ARTS is
"to provide quality cultural and education-
al experiences to the residents and visi-
tors of Sanibel, Captiva, and neighboring
communities." The mission of FISH is for
"volunteers to share their time, resources,
and talents with residents and visitors
who need a helping hand, a caring friend-
ship, and needed services." And the mis-
sion of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation is "dedicated to preserving
natural resources and wildlife habitat on
and around Sanibel and Captiva islands."
However, the mission of the com-
munity foundation reflects its overarching
funding and leadership role in a commu-
nity. Our mission is to "connect donors
and their philanthropic aspirations with
evolving community needs." We fulfill this
mission through grant workshops to non-
profits, one-on-one philanthropy discus-
sions with donors and their professional
advisors, regional and local leadership
initiatives, and partnerships with other
funders.
In the coming weeks, you will learn
more about community foundations,
philanthropy, the nonprofit sector, and
how the Good Neighbor Community
Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva plays a


critical role in building funds for sustain-
able growth for years to come.
The Good Neighbor Community
Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva, a division
of the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation, promotes philanthropy and a
spirit of community to enhance the qual-
ity of life for residents and employees of
Sanibel and Captiva islands and beyond,
now and for generations to come,
through the stewardship of permanently
endowed funds. Since 2000, the com-
munity foundation has distributed over
$3 million in grants and scholarships. For

Zinni Predicts
Three To Five
More Years Of
Afghan War
by Max Friedersdorf
nthony Charles Zinni, a retired
four-star general in the United
States Marine Corps, predicted
another three to five years of war in
Afghanistan during a lecture on January
27 before The FORUM at BIG ARTS.
"It's not going to be over next July,"
General Zinni commented, "it will be
three to five years at best to stabilize the
country and for their government to have
the ability to take over."
Speaking before another capacity
Sanibel audience in Schein Hall, Zinni
said the U.S. has adopted a counter-insur-
gency strategy in Afghanistan to "win the
hearts and minds of the Afghans."
"Will it work?" Zinni added, "it's
50-50 whether we will have the stomach
to stick it through. But, we have to make
that commitment."
Speaking on the general subject, U.S.
National Security issues, Zinni referred
briefly to America's other on-going war in
Iraq with the comment, "Iraq was a ter-
rible mistake to go in there with such few
troops."
Zinni complained that every issue in
the U.S. becomes politicized, including
climate change. The military has looked
into the environmental changes in the


Dick Wright, founder and moderator of The FORUM at BIG ARTS with Marine General
Anthony Zinni photo by Charles Simms


Arctic, "and one thing for sure, they are
melting."
Zinni also harshly criticized the last
three presidents for not devising a
National Security Strategy, as required by
law, to define the nation's priorities; what
threatens us; explain to the American
people why we are in Afghanistan, decide
what we can afford, and "realize we can-
not do everything for everybody."
"After half a century," Zinni asked,
"Why do we have U.S. troops stationed
in Japan, Germany and South Korea?
Those countries should be able to take
care of themselves. Their economies are
better than ours."


"Our own federal government is "a
bloated bureaucracy Zinni added. "Every
time there is a problem, instead of solving
it, they create a new department, com-
mittee or commission, adding more layers
of government. They should follow pri-
vate business and learn to streamline."
During the question session, General
Zinni defended the use of Drone aircraft
in Afghanistan where the deaths of civil-
ians has become an issue. Zinni said the
Drones are a "good tactic and reports of
civilian casualties are not true and exagger-
ated. Collateral damage is also lighter (from
Drones) than air strikes or artillery; we are
being as precise as we can make it."


Zinni served two tours in Vietman and
was severely wounded. His son is now
serving as a company commander with
the marines in southern Afghanistan.
General Zinni was considered as a run-
ning mate last year for President Obama,
but declined, commenting he would never
run for a political office.4

Feature Zen Home On Captiva


II


Shower


View from the Sherman home
Arriving at the Captiva home of Don and Joan Sherman, one's first indica-
tion that this will be a unique adventure is the red lacquered Torii roadside
sign. From that point, guests of Zonta's A Peek at the Unique home tour,
set for Saturday, March 13, will be charmed throughout their visit to a home that
combines traditional Japanese and contemporary Western elements with style and
warmth.
At the entry, dark river stones contrast with creamy travertine steps to the front
door. Inside, visitors find their gaze going immediately to the expansive view of the
Gulf of Mexico the goal, Joan Sherman says, when she and her husband embarked
on a major remodeling project: "We wanted to ensure that no interior elements inter-
fered with that marvelous view the design concept was to focus on the view, and to
create an interior that brought the outside in."
She worked with interior decorator Kym Nader on this light-filled home. Touches
of red and black enliven a sea of creamy custom colors and natural materials, reflective
of the Japanese culture that influenced the couple during many visits to that country.
A lamp over the breakfast table depicts the Japanese tea ceremony. The calm, unclut-
tered rooms, with a mix of antiques and contemporary furniture, and the classic lines
of cherry wood cabinets, all combine to create a feeling of spaciousness and peace.
Works of art paintings, ceramics, wood and other media reflect the Asian
theme and the couple's love for Japan. Upstairs, the gulf view is again the main fea-
ture, including a glorious vista of sky and sea from the master bathroom. The master
suite with its relaxing, pale decor is luxurious yet comfortable, with a fireplace that
adds visual, if not actual, warmth year-round.
Outside, a curving path leads from the pool past a Japanese sand garden to a
beachfront, paved patio. The eco-friendly outdoor shower of bamboo and ipe wood,
built by contractor Dan Budd as a birthday gift to Don from Joan is reminiscent of a
Japanese pagoda.

its authentic French fabrics.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily
through Monday, February 15 in the
space formerly occupied by Video Scene.
Michael Newburg, of Lyme,
Connecticut, the owner, said this is his
first sale in Florida, although he holds
them on the east and west coasts. He has
relatives on Sanibel and decided to give
the island a shot.
Many of the fabrics depict Provence's
signature honeybee motif, others are
emblazoned with sunflowers, lavender
and olives. Tablecloths start at $49 -
about 40 percent below regular retail.
Newburg, who spent part of his child-
hood in Provence, said his late wife fell in
love with the fabrics when she first saw
them. She added them to the couple's
organic farm store in Connecticut and
was always being asked for more. "We
started having them made up for us,"
Newburg said.
The tablecloths are much coveted for
their ability to shrug off stains, including
red wine. "People don't believe it until
they try it," he said. They are washable

Hidden Treasures
The Four Cs Of Diamonds
Part IV Of IV: Carat Weight
by Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell
T he time for procrastination is
over. Valentine's Day is immi- Solitaire Stack
nent, and it is time to learn about
the heaviest of the four Cs carat weight.
Of the four Cs, carat weight is the easiest to understand. The
standard unit of weight for diamonds is the metric carat, which
equals 1/5 gram. That's approximately 7/1,000 ounce. For
even greater precision, the carat is subdivided into 100 equal
units called points. In the United States, diamond weight is
measured to 1/1,000 and rounded to the nearest 1/100 carat. This means that the
weight is accurate within 1/2 point or 35 millionths of an ounce. Both industry stan-
dards and the Federal Trade Commission require this extreme measurement precision.
Carat weight is usually stated in decimal numbers like 0.50 and 1.25 carat or in
common fractions such as half, quarter, three-quarter, etc. A retailer of diamonds may
describe the fractions by saying "point four eight carats" or "forty eight hundredths" of
a carat or "forty eight points," or round up by saying "about half a carat." (All of these
are different ways of saying the same thing about a stone.)
A carat's effect on value depends on natural rarity. A 1-carat diamond is much
more rare than two 1/2-carat diamonds of similar quality. Therefore, the larger dia-
mond may be more expensive than the two smaller diamonds combined.
Other differences in rarity are reflected by a diamond's per-carat price, which is
the cost for each carat. This can be helpful in comparing two or more stones. One
diamond may cost $2,000 per carat while another costs $3,000 per carat due to the


FlooR&DEcOR
SANIBEL DESIGN CENTER


other qualities of the stone such as color, clarity, and cut.
Standards for an engagement ring seem to be leaning towards a stone of 1 carat
or more. In recent years, this standard has crept toward rings of 1.5 carats or more,
meaning that the center stone may be 1 carat, but the supporting cast of stones will
weigh /2 carat or more.
Proposing or honoring an anniversary is a weighty decision. Be sure to consult your
jeweler for advice on how to make the most of your intentions. Happy Valentine's
Day!

Author To Address Gulf Coast Writers
On Saturday, February 20, 10 a.m., Gulf Coast Writers Association will con-
tinue its acclaimed Professional Writers Series with a presentation by best-
selling author Charles Sobczak on self-publishing letters. The meeting will
take place at Friendship Hall, Zion Lutheran Church, 7401 Winkler Road, Fort
Myers.
Sobczak lives and writes on Sanibel Island. He formed Indigo Press, LLC in 1999
with the publication of his first novel, Six Mornings on Sanibel. From the original
print run of 3,000 copies the novel went on to become the best-selling book on
Sanibel. It is currently in its sixth printing with more than 25,000 copies sold.
His second novel, Way under Contract, a Florida Story, published in 2001,
went on to win the coveted Patrick Smith Award for Best Florida Literature, 2001. In
2005, Sobczak won the Alliance for the Arts Writer of the Year Award in Lee County.
His third novel, A Choice of Angels, earned a starred review in Booklist, the official
publication of the American Library Association, as well as a National Bronze Award
from Foreword Magazine for the Best Work of Religious Fiction, 2003. His non-
fiction book called Alligators, Sharks & Panthers: Deadly Encounters with Florida's
Top Predator Man, went on to win a second National Bronze IPPY Award and was
also a finalist in the annual Florida Publishers Association nonfiction book awards,
2008.
He has just released his field guide to Sanibel Island titled Living Sanibel, a nature
guide to Sanibel & Captiva Islands. It is a full color handbook to the flora and fauna
of Sanibel Island as well as a complete reference guide to all of Sanibel's bike paths,
hiking and kayak trails.
Admission is $5 for non-members, $3 for members. First time visitors are free.

Rotary
Happenings
submitted by Shirley Jewell
One of the things that Rotarians
have in common is that all care
about their communities. It is
almost without exception that upon
entering a city, town, or village around
the globe you will find the familiar
Rotary wheel logo posted as notice that
Rotary meets somewhere, sometime
within the boundaries of that munici-
pality. They contribute and support a
plethora of community activities, organi-
zations, schools, and recreational areas.
The Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva is
no exception. If you are a regular reader
of our Rotary articles, you no doubt are
aware of our support of our island com-
munity. On Saturday, February 13 and
Sunday, February 14, the Rotary club will
hold its annual Rotary Arts and Crafts
Fair at the Sanibel Community House on
Periwinkle Way. This is our club's main
fundraising activity and we invite all of
you to come help us support our commu-
nity, national, and global programs. More
information about these programs will be
displayed at the fair; including informa-
tion about Haitian relief. Hope to see you
at the fair!
Last week at our regular Rotary
meeting, we had a great speaker, a fel-
low Rotarian, Pam Bowman, from New
Brunswick, Canada. She is president of
the Southeast New Brunswick's Breast
Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat Team.


She had a very personal ..
and inspirational story to tell. L
A story that begins with a .-,
diagnosis of breast cancer. She 7
had lost her husband to cancer
and now was convinced she .
might face that same outcome.
Bowman said, "I had never

special exercises and training programs,
women could still be athletically active

introducing a clinical trial with 20 breast

spread this message by competing in

iCOTI's 35th Anniversary
After succeeding in
1974 at the enormous ,-
task of establishing .
Sanibel's independence,r hl t
the founders organized
COTI to help preserve the
principles and protections
they had worked hard to
secure. Among these was
the central goal of preserv-
Dale and Di McGinley ing Sanibel as a barrier
island sanctuary commu-
nity, where development
was limited and where the n
residents lived in harmony
with the environment and
wildlife.
Today, COTI's mission
p still reflects the group's
purpose as set forth in
its founding documents:
To ensure a continuity of
good local government; to
help promote and main-
Former Mayor Louise Johnson with Jim tain an enduring standard
Lavelle of living consistent with
the environmental quality Mardi Ponader helps sign in the birthday guests
of the island; and to assure
harmonious and integrated
planning to preserve Sanibel's unique and natural characteristics.
Recent highlights of COTI's efforts in pursuing this mission were cited at the event,
including the following:
Wrote and sponsored the People's Choice charter amendments, which require
voter consent to any changes in the basic land use codes that protect against overde-
velopment.
Helped passage of the city's post-disaster buildback ordinance, ensuring that even
non-conforming properties may be rebuilt after a disaster.
Supported and lobbied for the Forever Green charter amendment, requiring voter
approval before the city can dispose of certain city lands.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony


Coffee Bar at Bailey's staff, chamber of commerce members, Sanibel government officials, and friends help Blanaid Colley (center) cut
the ribbon for the grand opening
Coffee Bar at Bailey's held its official grand opening and Sanibel and Captiva Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting cer-
emony on January 27. Coffee Bar at Bailey's is located inside Bailey's General Store.
"We're so pleased to welcome the coffee bar to the chamber of commerce," said chamber President Ric Base. "Richard
and Blanaid have always been great chamber members, and we're so happy for their success with the coffee bar."
Chamber of commerce board members and local officials, including Mayor Mick Denham, Vice Mayor Kevin Ruane and
Councilman Jim Jennings, were at the ribbon cutting. Coffee, smoothies and refreshments were served, and guests were able to
sample some of the menu items.
"We've been open for several weeks now, and we wanted the community to celebrate that with us," said Richard Johnson,
Bailey's General Store general manager. "The ribbon cutting was our official grand opening."4


Local Jeweler To

Island, and we hope to see many old
friends and to meet new islanders and vis-
itors. Being able to help Sanibel-Captiva
Cares is another reason to celebrate."
Several pieces of jewelry from the visit-

Beachview Men's
Golf Association
by Ed O'Neil
T o be absolutely correct, this was
what those of us in the science
field call a meteoroligical mess. It's
a time when nothing works the way it
was designed.
First we had dry weather that left the
bountiful fruit crop undersized on island
trees. Then it rained too little and too
late. Altogether we were more than 14
inches short of water when 2009 ended.
This would, we figured, cause the
water bosses to order us to make ice
cubes out of beer by Valentine's Day.
Instead, the perverse Weather Czar
gave us a severe set of rains in February's
first few days that dumped more water
than all of '09 up to Mother's Day.
Through this confusion sloshed the
Beachview Men's Golf League. Their
February work started on a showery, cool
morning on the second day. By the time
the flooding rains really turned loose they
were off the course.



Beachview

scorecard playoff
The Beachview Ladies danced their
way through golf last week, well at least
sort of anyway. The event was one in
which teams consisted of three ladies
each and alternated which player's score
would count for each hole. First hole
would be one in which player one's score
would count, player two's score would
count on the second, and finally player
three's on the third, They then repeated
the pattern throughout the round.

Then the monthly Saturday scramble
came hours after another summerlike
soaking left parts of area golf courses
looking like places to hold the Olympic
canoe races. Balls stayed where they
landed. The first "hop" just made a
squishy sound. Finally, a strong breeze to
help the drying process moved approach
shots far off course.
The good news is that this much rain
concentrated in a few hours would have
meant three feet of snow if we hadn't
been smart enough to catch it on sub-
tropical soil. Washington, DC had only
had 13 snowfalls of over a foot since


1870 until this winter when two mon-
ster blanketings hit in seven weeks.
The Beachview scramble on February
6 saw Fred Zimmer, Guy Tober and Gholi
Darehshori weave their way through the
wet spots to post a net 44 and beat out
the largest field of the season.
Bjorn Olsson came off the ski slopes
of Colorado to lead his team of Joe
Barbieri, Stan Sheft and Al Krause to
second place with a 44.25. The blan-
ket finish saw Rich Rompala, Roger
Triftshauser, Terry Myers and Frank
Klepacki finish third after a sterling 45.
On showery February 2 it rained more

bogie is worth a point it can get hec-
tic early in the day. Don Hummel and
Terry McDermott, left high and wet by
companions who ducked the rain, used
a blind draw to win the nine-hole section
with a 55.
Helmut Peters, Olsson, Dick Chocol
and Rene Lohser sat atop a pile of
163 points to win the 18-hole section.

Rec Center Member Of The Month
T he City of Sanibel Recreation
Department has recognized
Maureen McClintock as the Member
of the Month.
McClintock has been a permanent resi-
dent of Sanibel Island since 1990 and rou-
tinely swam laps at the old recreation cen-
ter. As soon as the new recreation center
opened in 2007, she joined immediately.
Now she is one of the 6:30 a.m. "regulars"
that keep each other motivated to get their
workout in each morning.
You may find her swimming laps,
strength training, taking one of the over-40
inclusive fitness classes or getting in a car-
dio workout on the machines in the weight ",
room.
McClintock says, "The recreation center
has given me the opportunity to improve
my strength and endurance after complet-
ing chemotherapy treatment. Not to men-
tion, I sleep much better after a good work-
out. The beautiful new recreation center Maureen McClintock
and its dedicated staff are among Sanibel's
abundant treasures. The center offers something for everybody. If you aren't involved,
you are missing a great opportunity to improve your health and well being."

World's Best Skier Lindsey Vonn A Top
Attraction In The Winter Olympics
by Ed Frank
T he Super Bowl last weekend in Miami, the Ace Group
Classic golf tournament this weekend in Naples, the
Daytona 500 this weekend in Daytona; Boston Red Sox
and Minnesota Twins players start arriving next week it's a
jam-packed sports calendar in Florida.
But we turn our attention nearly 3,500 miles away to the
Distaff side of athletics and today's start of the 2010 Winter
Olympics in Vancouver where the world's greatest skier, Lindsey
SVonn, is certain to capture the hearts of Olympic enthusiasts.
Just as Danica Patrick, who will be making her NASCAR
debut tomorrow at Daytona, has stirred the emotions of race car
fans, Vonn is out to prove to the world that she is much more than a pretty face.
Congenial, attractive and oh so talented, she could be to the 2010 Winter Olympics
what Michael Phelps was to the 2008 Summer Games.
She has recently appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated and has advertising
deals with at least 10 corporate sponsors including Rolex, Proctor & Gamble, Vail
Resorts and Alka-Seltzer. She is also featured in this months swimsuit edition of Sports
Illustrated.
Here's what David Neal, NBC's executive producer for the Olympics said:
"Lindsey is authentic. She's very telegenic. She's the best woman skier in the world.
Lindsey has the whole package athletic ability and personality."
She is considered a medal contender in five events downhill, super-G, combined,
giant slalom and slalom, and is the prohibitive favorite in downhill and Super-G.
The 25-year-old has already been called the greatest woman skier in U.S. history.
She has 31 World Cup victories and an amazing nine just this season.
Yes, she's America's sweetheart of the slopes, but like all great athletes it didn't
come easy. When 13, her family moved from Minnesota to Colorado so she could
have better training. She commits to a brutal daily workout program explaining that
"talent can only take you so far."
She has been severely injured on the slopes a number of times, but always came
back with grit and determination.
In a 70-mile-an-hour downhill training crash two days before the 2006 Turin
Olympics, Vonn suffered serious back and pelvic injuries, but she returned to compete
in four events. Her tongue was cut open when her knee bounced up into her chin as
she won a World Cup title just last December.
That same month she received a deep bone bruise in her left wrist in a giant slalom
crash in Lienz, Austria, when her skis caught in the snow and threw her into the air.
For the average skier it would take months to recover, but not for Vonn.
And there was one comical injury that she would like to forget. She nearly severed
her right thumb when grabbing a broken champagne bottle after winning two gold
medals in the 2009 World Championships in France. She bristled at comments that
she was a party girl.


"It was a freak accident. It was 6 p.m.
right after the awards ceremony. I had
zero alcohol," she was quoted as saying
recently.
Lindsey Vonn is certain to take center
stage at the Winter Olympics. And she's
likely to be center on the medal stand as
she receives Olympic gold.
Everblades To Play Five Games This

The Florida Everblades split with the
Charlotte Checkers in two games in
Charlotte last week. They claimed a 4-3
shootout win last Thursday and lost 3-2 the

Tuesday began a busy week for the
Everblades as they played host to the
Gwinnett Gladiators for two games
Tuesday and Wednesday in Germain

North Charleston to face first-place South
Carolina. The Everblades finish the week

The Return
Of Serve
by Louis Vosloo
She return of
serve is a key
to component
to starting and
s. dictating the point
c a of play. When
returning a serve
you want to stand
further back of your
contact point for
striking the ball.
When the server hits the serve, you
will want to split step and move forward
into the return. This will allow you to get
forward momentum and add pace into
the shot. Also start to get your racket
back as soon as you can tell which side


ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 12, 2010 27B
the serve is going to go. By the time the
ball comes to you, all you will have to do
is swing through the shot. Remember,
on a fast paced serve you want to have
a short backswing and a long follow
through. One more key thing to remem-
ber is to have a plan on where you want
to hit the ball before you hit it. This
will allow you greater accuracy on your
return.M

Will Power

What's Your Family
Business Succession Plan?
by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills,
Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA


M ore than
90 percent
of all U.S.
businesses are family
businesses, account-
ing for over 78 per-
cent of our country's
employment and
150 of the Fortune
500 Companies.
Yet only 30 percent
of these family busi-
nesses will survive
into the family's second generation, 12
percent will make it to the third genera-
tion and only 4 percent survive to the
fourth generation!
The number one reason why fam-
ily businesses don't survive has nothing
to do with estate taxes, but instead has
everything to do with the lack of family
business succession planning. There are
a variety of reasons for this, which I 'm
going to explore in today's column.
Business experts have identified six
difficult transitions that a family business
must navigate in order to successfully
survive from one generation to the next.
The first is to identify the current family
leader's business and professional direc-
tion after transferring the business. Will
he or she have independent financial


resources outside of income flow from the
business? Will the family leader have the
ability to actually give up something that
he has built and controlled from its begin-
ning? What steps will the family take to
review and implement the family leader's
vision of retirement? Is that vision realis-
tic? If not, what steps will the family take
to address that problem?
The second transition involves the fam-
ily's transition. How will the roles, power
relationships and family dynamics change
after the succession? Consider the estate
plan of one family businessman who
turned over the company to his eldest son
who worked in the company for the son's
entire life. The other children thought that
their father favored the eldest son, which
led to conflict and resentments between
the son and his siblings, who controlled
the other family assets (land and buildings)
on which the business relied. The family
harmony was ruined, as was the smooth
interplay of assets necessary for the busi-
ness' success.
What are your family's dangers along
these lines?
The third transition involves the busi-
ness' strategic plan. To what extent will
the business plan change when the next
generation takes over? Change is always
required in order to keep up with the


times and remain competitive, while at
the same time the business' core values
must be identified and followed. The JM
Smucker Company serves as a great
example of this, as it is now in its fifth
generation of family ownership. The core
values of the Smucker Company are to
remain independent and provide qual-
ity food products. How they do this, of
course, changes with new technology,
production, marketing and distribution
techniques. Has your family business
identified its core values and how it will
remain competitive over the next several
years?
Management's transition is the fourth
element. When the family patriarch or
matriarch retires, will management consist
solely of family members or will it also
involve selected key employees who are
not family? What plan has been put into
place to retain these key managers when
the family leader retires? Is there a danger
of a key manager leaving and becoming
aligned with a competitor? Along the lines
of family managers have they gained
the necessary knowledge and experi-
ence required to effectively do their jobs?
Is there a likelihood of sibling conflict
that could get in the way of a smooth
management transition? Psychological
experts tell us that conflict is a necessary
part of human relationships. They say
that humans cannot spend any significant
amount of time together without having
differences and that these differences
are normal. How does the family intend
to plan for the inevitable conflict without
ruining the business?
Ownership structure is the fifth transi-
tion. Who will own the company and in


what capacity? Will it be equal ownership?
Will there be common voting shares for
some members of the family while others
receive preferred non-voting shares that
share in the profits but not in the man-
agement? If so, what safeguards will be
built in to ensure that the voting members
of the company don't take advantage of
the non-voting members?
The sixth transition includes the family
leader's estate plan. How exactly will the
transition occur? Will it occur with lifetime
sales/transfers/gifts or at death? What are
the liquidity requirements to ensure that
the family leader and spouse will have the
necessary funds to live in retirement while
at the same time not bankrupting the
business? In other words, what estate plan
structure needs to be put into place in
order to ensure a smooth transition from
one generation to the next?
Families are reluctant to tackle these
problems. In the short run, it's easier
to put all of these questions and issues
off for tomorrow. No one wants to deal
with these issues in a time of crisis and
obviously the earlier the six transitions
are dealt with, the easier it's going to
be for everyone, and a more thoughtful
approach will likely occur.
Family characteristics and business
characteristics are at odds. Families focus
inward on themselves and their relation-
ships while businesses must focus outward
on serving customers, clients and referral
sources. One becomes a family member
through birth, marriage or adoption while
businesses recruit based on resumes and
experience.

Insurance Tip:
Ordinance And
Law Coverage
by Marge Meek
C certain insur-
ance poli-
cies, namely
"homeowners"
S, policies, are man-
dated by Florida
state law to include
ordinance and
law (O&L) cover-
age. This is a very
important coverage
and just the wording makes our eyes
glaze over, so let's try to understand
what we are getting.
Your property insurance puts your
building back in the same condition it was
prior to a loss up to your replacement
coverage. But say you had a significant
fire and your house is not up to current
building codes, because those codes have
changed since your house was built. Your
contractor cannot get a building permit
unless he brings you up to those codes,
which undoubtedly means a higher cost
to rebuild. This is where the O&L portion
of your policy kicks in.
Insurance companies give you a choice
of either a 25 percent or 50 percent (of
the dwelling) O&L coverage. A few com-
panies even allow you to reject ordinance
and law coverage, so owners of newer
homes built after 2002 may choose to


delay taking this coverage until new build-
ing codes are enacted.
Florida is unique in offering this valu-
able insurance. If the damage to your
home in the fire mentioned before was
over 50 percent, then the whole building
must be rebuilt to code or demolished.
With this coverage your insurance could
cover either 125 percent or 150 percent
of your insured value which is money you
need as you rebuild to code. Especially on
older homes facing our comprehensive
building codes, this is a much needed
part of our insurance policies. As with all
insurance there are some restrictions that
apply.
Your insurance carrier must provide
you with a notice of this coverage at least
once every three years, so take a look at
it when your receive your renewal infor-
mation. For more information, call your
agent.

The Finishing
Touch
by Jeanie Tinch
H ave you ever
noticed that
when you
take down your
holiday decora-
Stions, your home
looks surprisingly
bare? It might be
that you need to
add accessories to
make your room
look festive all year round, to give it that
"finishing touch."
Accessorizing is the way we put our
personality stamp on our homes. It can
be considered an embellishment on the
theme of our lifestyle an extension, not
only of our personal decorating taste, but
also of our personal lives.
Once relegated to only the very
wealthy who displayed curios that looked
like they belonged in a museum, home
accessorizing caught on with the general
public some time ago. To a great extent
this is due to magazines that show exqui-
site close-ups of tabletops and decorated
walls. Every tabletop becomes a still life,
every wall a vista.
Hopefully, the memorabilia displayed
in your home includes a collection of
meaningful items, accumulated over time,
with special significance for you. Mix your
cherished pieces among your current dec-
orative items for a look that will please. If
you are fortunate enough to have a very
large assortment of special keepsakes,
try putting away half of them for a few
months, then exchange them with the
ones on display for a fresh look.
The arrangement of your collections
ican be just as interesting as the collection
itself. Some people arrange by subject:
a medley of jade turtles or a grouping of
horse pictures together. Others arrange
by what we call predicate, the most com-
mon being in size and color. Books are
perfect example. Analytical personalities
will classify their books by subject. The
more visually oriented person tends to
sort by predicate size, color, etc.
The next step is to determine how to
arrange accessories. Some prefer sym-
metry, for example, two candlesticks and
two objets d'art flanking an oil painting
over a mantel would be suitable for a
formal arrangement. Others prefer an
asymmetrical grouping, as in variable-
sized framed photographs, next to a floral
arrangement. Place accessories in uneven
numbers, arranging items in threes, fives,
or sevens for a more interesting group-
ing.
So put your personality stamp on
your home decor and make every day a
holiday.

tor on Sanibel. She can be reached at

Don't Over


Ventilate


by Bryan Hayes


"^*S r o you had
., a hard day,
-. t finally home
and ready for a hot
relaxing shower.
My mother would
always say to me
1 "Take a shower,
you'll feel bet-
ter." I guess I was
a miserable kid,
who knows. Anyway, you get ready for
your shower and turn on the bathroom
exhaust. After you finish your shower
you figure it's still humid in the bath-
room area and decide to leave the fan
on a while to help clear the air. This is a
good thing, right? Well yes and no. The
"yes" part is that it is advantageous to
remove heat and humidity from an inte-
rior space. It helps to limit the amount
of microorganisms that can grow.
The "no" comes into play when we
over ventilate. What happens is you leave
the exhaust fan on too long or just plain
forget. During the time that your exhaust
fan is on doing its job, air is being pulled
out of the bath area and deposited out-
side. The problem that arises is while
you are taking heat and humidity out
of your home, you are also taking air.
This creates a negative pressure in your
home. This will cause outside air to enter
through every little crack and crevice
throughout the dwelling. So it can be
counterproductive. During the summer
you are pulling hot/humid air into your
cool house and the same rings true when
you are running your heat.
During the non conditioning months,
i.e. when you are not running cooling or
heat, this is not a problem. You usually
will have windows open somewhere in
the house to enjoy that clean fresh air of
the outside world. Please note: do not do
this too often, for no other reason that I
have four kids to support. Anyway back
to the task at hand.
When we are running air condition-
ing/heat is when over ventilation is a
problem. So what is the answer. Well,
the Home Ventilation Institute recom-
mends running your bath exhaust for 20
minutes after you shower. This can easily
be accomplished one of three ways: you
can try and remember to come back in
20 minutes; you have a timer installed
on the bath exhaust; or have a humidity
sensor installed, that will shut down the
fan when the humidity is below a certain
set point.
You never knew that bathroom ventila-
tion was so exciting did you? Thanks as
always for reading.

tioning contractor He also owns, with

Islands Take Prize At State Fair


The winning exhibit
The Sanibel-Captiva exhibit received the first place award at the Florida State
Fair in Tampa. The booth was designed by Sam Bailey, the Sanibel-Captiva
Chamber of Commerce and Sabra Brown, whom Bailey hired to put the
booth together.
Sanibel has been represented at the Florida State Fair since the 1930s, ever since
Bailey's General Store entered its grapefruits into the produce competition and domi-
nated the citrus category many times.
The exhibits are judged by the Florida State Fair Authority. Typically, these pro-
motional exhibits must represent a county, not a city or municipality, but since Lee


County does not participate in the fair, Sanibel and Captiva are represented as their
own entity, according to information from the chamber.
The Florida State Fair runs through February 14 at 4800 Highway 301 North.
Gates open at 9 a.m. Closing time varies. For more information about the fair, log
onto www.floridastatefair.com/state-fair.0

SWFAS Grant Will Improve Access
To Substance Abuse Treatment
Southwest Florida Addiction Services (SWFAS) is one of 25 organizations
selected to participate in a national program to prepare communities for antic-
ipated health care reform.
The program, called the Accelerating Reform Initiative, is designed to help health
care organizations develop closer working relationships to reach more people in need
of substance abuse treatment. SWFAS will partner with Lee Memorial Health System
(LMHS) to identify patients in need of substance abuse services earlier and help them
to access SWFAS treatment in a more seamless manner.
"We are very excited to join with colleagues from across the country and from Lee
Memorial Health System to participate in this important project," said SWFAS CEO
Kevin B. Lewis. "Staff from both SWFAS and Lee Memorial Health System worked
very hard on this effort. It offers a chance for us to improve access to care for individu-
als with substance use disorders."
Lewis said the grant provides technical assistance and guidance from national
Experts to assist SWFAS and LMHS, and covers travel costs for required workshops.
The grant was awarded by the Network for the Improvement of Addiction
Treatment (NIATx), a partnership that includes the Center for Substance Abuse
Treatment at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
(SAMHSA), and several independent addiction treatment organizations, including
SWFAS.
"With expected health care reform, we anticipate that there will be more people eli-
gible for substance abuse treatment services through their new health insurance plans,"
Lewis said. "Currently, patients often turn to hospital emergency rooms for substance
abuse treatment. This is the most expensive option and hospital emergency rooms are
not equipped to offer this type of specialized care.
"Not only will this help alleviate hospital overcrowding, but it will ensure that
patients with addictive disorders receive the specialized care that can effectively meet
their needs," Lewis said.
LMHS will work with SWFAS to improve the system of referring those patients to
SWFAS for treatment, when needed.
SWFAS opened a new state-of-the-art Detoxification and Outpatient Treatment
Center last April on Evans Avenue in Fort Myers with p to 40 beds for detoxification
and outpatient and prevention services. The 44,000 square foot facility is comparable
to other primary health care facilities and is part of efforts to define addiction as a
chronic and treatable disease and reduce the stigma for those who seek treatment.0

lions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted
international educational and media campaigns, launched the Karama program in
the Middle East, reopened shelters, and funded over 11,000 community-based anti-
violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic Of Congo, Haiti, Kenya,
South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq. V-Day was named one of Worth magazine's 100 Best
Charities in 2001 and Marie Claire magazine's Top Ten Charities in 2006. The 'V

Sanibel Relay For
Life Joins In
Fort Myers Effort
he Sanibel Captiva Relay for Life
Committee is still an active group
of dedicated islanders raising
money to find a cure for cancer and to
help the American Cancer Society.
In past years, much of its time and
energy was consumed by organizing and
administering the Relay itself here on
Sanibel. After much discussion and con-
sideration, the Committee concluded it
might be more effective in achieving the
ACS major objective raising money -
by participating in the Fort Myers Relay
for Life event as the Sanibel-Captiva
Relay for Life Team, known as Sanibel
Captiva Fighting Conch.
"In so doing, we can redirect the
time and energy previously required to
establish our own relay event and focus
100 percent of these efforts to achieving
greater fund raising results," committee
officials said in a prepared statement.


"To date, a few successful fundraising
events have already been held on the
island and others are scheduled to follow.
The Fort Myers Event is April 23 and
24 at the Lee County Sports Complex.
Go online to http://main.acsevents.org/
site/TR?fr_id=21075&pg=teamlist to
sign up. Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grill of
Sanibel is the presenting sponsor this
year in Fort Myers.
"Come join us for a new level of
excitement by participating in the Sanibel
Captiva Relay for Life Team in the Fort
Myers Relay for Life event," the commit-
tee members said.
Meetings are held monthly at Bank of
the Islands at 6 p.m. Dates are February
22, March 29 and April 19.

Family Business
Succession Plan
Many harmonious families offer uncon-
ditional love and acceptance while the
best businesses reward responsibility and
performance. Family matters tend to be
emotionally oriented while business mat-
ters are best approached analytically.
Family members aren't supposed to judge
and evaluate one another while constant
evaluations are an ongoing requirement
for the successful business.
We tend to encourage our loved ones'
educational and career choices based


upon their interests and aptitude while
training for a particular task is important
in the business setting. Families don't like
change whereas businesses must.
The best business succession plans
take into account these differences while
addressing the six transitions. Has your
family business considered these issues?

Pets Of The Week
Sove is in the air the entire month of
February at Lee County Domestic
animal Services (LCDAS). If you've
been looking for love in all the wrong
places or you just need a new best friend,
LCDAS has a sweet deal for you. All
month long the agency is offering $25 off
the regular adoption fee for all adult pets.
The reduced adoption fee will still include
the complete package of services.
My name is Nino. It's almost
Valentine's Day and I'm looking' for some
good lovin'! I'm only four months old and
my first owner didn't treat me very nice.
The police found me when they took my
owner to jail. He had cropped my ears
himself without taking me to a vet. It hurt
a lot but I feel much better now that the
shelter doctor took care of me. So even
though I might look a bit like a tough guy
now, I'm really a little sweetheart. Won't
you please be my valentine?
My adoption fee is only $95.
Love is in the air this month so I sure
hope it's my turn. I'm Belinda and when
I came to the shelter I was ready to give
birth to my kittens. We spent the next



Spay Day USA
Myth: Cats have nine lives.
Fact: Cats are lucky if they
have just one life. In Lee County
over 3,000 cats were euthanized in 2009
due to pet overpopulation. Spaying and
neutering can prevent the unnecessary
and tragic deaths of thousands of cats
every year.
During February Lee County Domestic
Animal Services (LCDAS) will join the
national organizers of Spay Day USA
in promoting the importance of spaying
and neutering to save the lives of millions
of pets each year. Locally, Lee County
residents are fortunate to have programs
available year-round that will help reduce
pet overpopulation. LCDAS would like to
draw particular attention to Lee County's
cat overpopulation problem and "bust
the myths" associated with spaying and
neutering.


couple of month in a very nice foster
home. My girlish figure has returned and
I'm ready to find that special someone
meant just for me. I have lots of love to
lavish on someone so you won't want to
miss an opportunity to take me home.
My adoption fee is only $25 this
month.
For information about this week's
pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log
on to Animal Services' Web site at www.
LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to
the animal's ID number. The Web site
updates every hour so you will be able
to see if these or any other pets are still
available.
The shelter is open for adoptions
from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday
through Saturday. The shelter is located
at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next
to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, off Six
Mile Cypress Parkway.
All adoptions include spay/neuter sur-
gery, age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies
vaccination and county license if three
months or older, flea treatment, worming,
heartworm test for dogs six months and
over, feline AIDS and leukemia test for
cats, training DVD, 10-day health guaran-
tee, and a bag of Science Diet pet food.
The adoption package is valued at
$500.


Information is available online at www.
LeeLostPets.com about LCDAS's free
spay/neuter services for owned and out-
door community cats. For those who do
not qualify for this program, other low-
cost options are available. To schedule an
appointment or for additional information
about spay/neuter programs for both cats
and dogs, call 533-9234. Making a call
today can save the lives of animals tomor-
row.
Tax-deductible donations are gladly
accepted to offset the costs of spay/
neuter programs so more animals may
benefit from these life-saving programs.
It is estimated that Lee County has
98,000 feral and community cats. Your
$25 donation will help spay or neu-
ter one more. Donate online at www.
LeeLostPets.com or mail your tax-deduct-
ible donations to: Animal Care Trust
Fund, 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers,
FL 33912.'
