Jenkinson Is Steinbeck At BIG ARTS
by Di Saggau
C lay Jenkinson has delighted BIG
ARTS audiences with his his-
torical portrayals of J. Robert
Oppenheimer, Theodore Roosevelt and
Thomas Jefferson. He's back again on
March 10 as author John Steinbeck.
I had an enjoyable conversation with
Jenkinson recently and he said a lot was
involved for him to portray Steinbeck.
"If I had thought about it, I might
not have taken on this role. It involved
reading all his books, and going into
Steinbeck country. I made a trip to
Salinas and Monterey, to his museum
and to his house. Part of understanding
the character is getting the feel of their
world."
Jenkinson said Steinbeck's Grapes of
Wrath is one of the world's top novels.
"It's pretty hard to beat it. When doing
my research I saved it for last because I
had read it a couple of times. It was eas-
ily so much better than anything else he
wrote. It was the right story for the right

Council Cuts
Number Of
Meetings By Half
by Anne Mitchell
In another round of cost-cutting, the
city council is to hold fewer meetings
half as many starting in April.
That means the five elected council
members will meet just once a month
instead of twice.
Department heads have been identify-
ing ways of saving money for more than
a year, including reducing staff by attri-
tion and asking contractors to lower their
rates and prices and tightening up on
expenses.
"You finally decided to cut us,"
Councilman Peter Pappas joked to City
Manager Judie Zimomra.
Exceptions are the months of
September 2010 and March 2011. Two
meetings will be necessary in September
to comply with the statutory budget
schedule and the staff is recommending
two meetings in March 2011 to accom-
modate the annual election of mayor and
vice-mayor, Zimomra said.
Mayor Mick Denham noted that any
time council needs to, it can call a special
meeting.
Sanibel's charter requires council to
meet at least once a month.0

Sanibel Historical Museum And Village
Docent Profile:
Alan And Helene Smith
by Ray Buck
ocents Alan
and Helene
Smith offer an
accent that makes New
York City visitors to
the Sanibel Historical
Museum and Village feel
right at home. Their
working life before
Sanibel was among the
skyscrapers. They asked
to be photographed "in
the vicinity of Morning
Glories," the Sears a Rlf"
Roebuck house ordered
from the catalog. M--
"We both love the
house," wrote Alan, "but
for different reasons and
our tour spiel tends to
reflect those differences.
Helene welcomes visi-
tors into 'her' house and
shows them through as
if it were, or had been,
'her' home over on Bird
Lane, looking out into Helene and Alan Smith
the bay. Someone usu-
ally figures out that she looks remarkably well-preserved to have lived there in the mid
1920s.
I, on the other hand, am fascinated with the construction aspects of the house, the
thought given to comfortable living design and some of the anecdotal material about
the Messers Sears and Roebuck, as well as the Sears Corporation itself."

Morning Glories is one of the seven structures in the Sanibel Historical Museum
and Village. The home was ordered from a Sears and Roebuck catalog and came to
the island in the early 1920s in 30,000 pieces by train and barge. It was one of two
bought by two brothers and brought to Sanibel at the same time.
Alan and Helene met while working for NBC, Helene with the John Cameron
Swayze and Steve Allen shows, among others. As you might imagine from his descrip-
tion of how he handles Morning Glories, Alan was in the news division. Life changed
some when the first of three children arrived. Helene left NBC and Alan went to The
Today Show, eventually reaching managing editor/associate producer, followed by a
stint with the NBC News Election Unit.
When the youngest child entered college, Helene went to law school. She was a
corporate lawyer with the likes of General Foods until she went into private practice
specializing in trademark law. Alan left NBC in 1976 for a new career with Broadcast
Music, Inc., one of the world's largest music licensing organizations. He retired in
1995 as vice president.
Away from the village, the Smiths are active in Senior Center activities, kayaking
whenever possible. Also of note to Sanbellians who read local newspapers, Alan is fel-
low docent and feature article writer Jane Hogg's brother

City Seeks To
Expand
Outdoor Dining,
Curtail Smoking
by Anne Mitchell
Concerns about smoking, noise
and the high cost of sewer impact
fees were raised Tuesday as the
Sanibel Planning Commission set about
amending an ordinance that would give
more restaurants an opportunity to
apply for outdoor bonus seating.
Currently, only restaurants and take-
outs in Sanibel's commercial district can
have bonus outdoor seating, while those
in the resort district don't have that ben-
efit.
Sitting as the Land Development
Review Committee, the seven commis-
sioners on Tuesday largely appeared to
favor an amendment but wanted to make
sure that non-conforming restaurants
would not be given carte blanche. They
would have to apply for variances that
would be considered on a case-by-case
basis.
The Twilight Cafe, whose owner
Robert Parks had approached the city last
year about outdoor seats, is a non-con-
forming use in the resort housing district.
If an amendment is passed, it would still
need variances for parking and setbacks.
Both Twilight Cafe and the Mad
Hatter have the same limitations, said
Planning Director Jim Jordan, "of the site
being overdeveloped."
That prompted Commissioner Chuck
Ketteman to wonder whether, if none of
the restaurants could meet the codes, it
would be "a fruitless exercise" to pass an
amendment.
"At least it offers them the opportunity
to petition the city for outdoor dining,"
said Jordan. He acknowledged, how-
ever, that it would be "a high standard to
meet."


It was determined two weeks ago that
rather than look at one specific case, the
commission would consider a broader
approach that would include other res-
taurants, including Gramma Dot's and
the Mad Hatter. Jordan listed other res-
taurants outside the commercial district,
noting that only those open to the public
would be considered under the current
proposal.
Chairman Mike Valiquette said some
small restaurant owners have told him
they cannot afford the $3,000 sewer
impact fee required for the bonus seat-
ing. The commission asked staff to report
back on how that sum was reached.
Commissioner Tom Krekel wondered
if nearby residents would have a chance
for input if they were worried about
noise from the outdoor dining area. The
hearing process would put neighbors on
notice, Valiquette said.
Also, the proposed amendment
includes a city review of each applicant's
outdoor dining in the first two years and if
noise was an issue, it could be handled.
Adding restrictions against smoking
close to other diners was also proposed
and supported by several commission-
ers. "We stay away from the outdoor
tables because of the ashtrays," remarked
Valiquette.
City Attorney Ken Cuyler was asked
to research whether Sanibel can be more
restrictive than the state regarding smok-
ing and report back at the committee's
March 9 meeting.
Commissioner Phillip Marks said he'd
like to see more open air dining.
"I am definitely in favor of bonus seat-
ing because we are a semi-tropical island.
We have a dearth of outdoor dining," he
said.

Commission To Stick
With Its Meeting Schedule
by Anne Mitchell
W while the Sanibel City Council has opted to cut its number of meetings in
half just one a month instead of two the planning commission doesn't
plan to follow suit in this cost-saving measure.
"We pretty much go with our own schedule. I don't think we need to make any-
thing official at this point," said Commission Chairman Mike Valiquette.
Commissioner Paul Reynolds said he hoped the meeting cutback "doesn't lead to
criticism such as, There you go again, conducting city business when people are out
of town.' We heard it and I hope you don't hear it."
Mayor Mick Denham, this week's council liaison to the planning commission,
responded, "My answer is always the same. The city runs 12 months a year. We have
spent great effort to have a very comprehensive email system and (meetings are) well
represented in the newspapers."
Commissioner Phillip Marks wondered how reducing meetings saved money.
Denham said there was a lot of paperwork involved and Planning Director Jim Jordan
said a lot of staff time is spent preparing for meetings.
Denham added that any time council had important business to conduct it could call
a special meeting.,

Jenkinson
At BIG ARTS
moment for the right people, the Great
Depression, the dust bowl, the California
dream. He found the magic pill, and that
makes the book really remarkable."
Jenkinson said Steinbeck believed that
there are only a handful of basic plots.
"He believed that most of the great
stories are told in the Bible, the King
Arthur stories and the Arabian Nights.
If you rework them for your world, that
is basically all a novelist can do. He was
very influenced by the Bible and the
Arthurian tales. He was a very moralistic
man who wanted to write about these
basic human struggles. That's why he is
still so widely read."
Grapes of Wrath is one of the most
read books in America, read by genera-
tions of students and adults. Of Mice and
Men is another.
"Faulkner and Hemingway might say
he's overrated, but he's still very well read
so his place in American culture is a very
prominent one," Jenkinson said.


In spite of his interesting books,
Jenkinson says Steinbeck was not a very
interesting or nice man. "He married
three times, had a violent temper, was
very self-centered, and morose because
he didn't feel he was being taken seri-
ously. His life is not as interesting as his
books. I talk mostly about his books and
his outlook on America."
I asked Jenkinson what he wants the
audience to experience from his show.
"I want them to leave with an eagerness
to read. I want them to be aware of the
commonality of human experience that
we all share.
Everyone in the audience in some way
shares the same story: jealousy, sibling
rivalry, insecurity, anger at God, grief,
lust, ambitions, et cetera. Regardless of
what your income might be, everyone is
basically running the same software and
Steinbeck was on to that."
Jenkinson has been hailed as "A lead-
er in the revival of chautauqua, a forum
for public discussion about the ideas and
lives of key figures in American history."
His performances are always humor-
ous, educational, thought-provoking and
enlightening.


See him as John Steinbeck on
Wednesday, March 10, 8 p.m. in Schein
Hall at BIG ARTS. It's an On Stage
presentation. Tickets are $35, $15 for
students and are available by calling
395-0900, or stop by BIG ARTS, 900
Dunlop Road, Sanibel.

Kiwanians Support Theater
Members of the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club have dipped into their own
pockets to support the Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theater and possibly ben-
efit their own club. Kiwanians John Morse, Jerry Edelman, Tom Uhler, and
John Schubert each contributed to purchase a Schoolhouse raffle ticket on behalf
of Kiwanis. If the club's ticket is drawn, Kiwanis will receive the first place prize of
$20,000 or second prize of $5,000.
Morse, Kiwanis Club president, said, "This is a great opportunity for Kiwanians to
show support for the Schoolhouse Theater while also creating the possibility that our
club might win a significant amount of money that could be used to further promote
Kiwanis' mission, primarily helping kids." Rich Green, a Schoolhouse board member
and also a Kiwanian, said he hoped other service organizations and groups will do
the same. The winning tickets will be drawn on March 3 at the theater's fundraiser at
South Seas Plantation. For more information contact the theater at 472-6862.4

SCCF Docents Aboard Cruises
Captiva Cruises and The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF)
recently completed a cooperative training program for docents to conduct
natural and cultural history programs aboard Captiva Cruises' vessels. The
docents went through an intensive program covering the ecology and history of
Pine Island Sound and Charlotte Harbor region. This course also covered environ-
mental interpretation exercises, techniques and principles.
Docents have regularly represented SCCF and Captiva Cruises with narration on
the daily Dolphin and Wildlife Adventure Cruise. Now they will also be aboard the trip
to Cayo Costa and Cabbage Key to offer an added program on the history and ecol-
ogy of the area.
Cayo Costa State Park, only accessible by boat, has eight miles of pristine beaches
and live oak ridges, making it a diverse and fascinating destination. Cabbage Key, also
only reachable by boat, is an historic Florida Inn.
These docent-led programs take place on Saturdays for Cayo Costa and Thursdays
for Cabbage Key.
For more information, call Captiva Cruises at 472-5300.
New Environmental Cruises
C aptiva Cruises has added three new naturalist-led environmental cruises. They
are:
Science at Sea
Be a Marine Biologist! This 90-minute hands-on scientific inquiry is for all ages.
Crab traps and plankton nets will be hauled for a look at some of the components of
the food chains. The guides use magnifying viewers to see the things we can't usually
see. The actual scientific research will be utilized by The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation's Marine Lab.
Shoreline Discovery
Travel to a secluded beach for a guided shoreline walk to discuss coastal sea life and
beach dynamics. Explore mudflats and use nets within the shallow sea grass beds for
an up-close look at some of the smaller yet amazing inhabitants of the back bay estu-
ary ecosystem. Bring wading shoes.
Sailing Under The Stars
Watch the sunset, experience day turning into night, linger out on the water and
sail under the stars. Planets, stars and constellations will be identified along the way.
Mythology, mysteries and features of our Milky Way galaxy, as well as the greater uni-
verse, will be studied under the magic of the night sky.

Power Squadron
Performs Change
Of Watch
submitted by Bob Allen
T he Sanibel-Captiva Sail & Power
Squadron just completed its annual
Change of Watch in which the
past leaders are given well deserved
kudos and are relieved of their duties.
The newly elected leaders then take an
oath to pick up the flag and do their
duty. It is truly a case of out with the old
and in with the new.
It is a tradition that the top leadership
turn over every year opening the door to
new enthusiastic members wanting to try
their ideas.
As this occurs at the national, district,
and ultimately at our local squadrons, it
creates a plethora of ideas. One clue is
the wealth of education requirements and
programs which have been identified and
must somehow be put in place in our
squadron organization.
There were several awards given dur-
ing the program. Past Commander Steve
Abbott was accepted as a junior member
of the Silver Tridents (all past command-
ers). Jim Strothers, as our co-op chart-
ing leader, accepted multiple awards for
our squadron's excellence within the
district in checking marker maintenance.
John Carney was awarded the 'bent
prop' award for finding, in an extremely
low tide, a sandbar on the Intracoastal


eft: Vicki Ross, Chap Vail, District Commander Scotten, New

and Steve Abbott. Not pictured: Sami Lucas, David Ross and

Waterway. Joanne Heroy-Giller received
an award for educational excellence for
her many years in organizing the begin-
ner boating classes.
That is old and the new is just begin-
ning. The squadron's new Commander,
Carol Allen, was given the oath of office
by District Commander Gregg Scotten.
Commander Allen then called forth the
new members of the bridge and executive
committee.
At the end of the evening it was asked
that the squadron be blessed with fair
winds and calm seas.#

Author To Speak At Shell Museum
If you love
nature and live
on Sanibel or
enjoy time on
the island as a
one book that is
a "must have"
for your personal
reference library,
Living Sanibel,
a Nature Guide
to Sanibel & Sobczak
Captiva Islands Charles Sobczak
by renowned
resident author Charles Sobczak. There
is something to "tickle everyone's
outdoor world fancy" in this amazing,
comprehensive field guide that includes
540 full-color photographs, illustrations
and trail maps.
On March 2, at 10 a.m., Sobczak
will speak at The Bailey-Matthews Shell
Museum. He will share his experiences
compiling the material for his most
recent book which not only provides a
pictorial guide of Sanibel's critters but
also includes identification tips, anec-
dotal field experience and practical information about the island's kayak and hiking
trails. The emphasis of the program will be shells, which hold a special fascination for
Sobczak. The program is free with admission to the museum.
The shell museum has more than a passing interest in Sobczak's new release -
Sobczak's son Blake spent several days at the museum taking photographs of Sanibel
shells in the museum's holdings. Dr. Jos& H. Leal, director/curator of the museum,
contributed a number of photographs from the online guide to the shells of Southwest
Florida and served as the project's shell expert.
"Living Sanibel reminds us once again of the vast natural treasures and biodiver-
sity so well preserved on Sanibel, and will remain the definitive treatise on the islands'
natural history and environment for years to come," said Leal.
"Charles is sure to captivate the audience," said Kathleen E. Hoover, the museum's
public relations manager. "You only have to be with Charles for a few minutes to expe
rience his unbridled enthusiasm for Sanibel and its unique biodiversity. His passion for
sharing the island's story is contagious!"
A book signing will take place immediately following the program. For more infor-
mation call Diane Orvis Thomas at 395-2233.0

CROW Case Of The Week:
Gopher Tortoise
Sby Brian Johnson
O/ n October 25, 2009 members of the Santana family
S were at their home in Alva when their young Labrador
-, retriever came bounding into the yard with a baby
fr gopher tortoise in his mouth. They were able to rescue the
little 500-gram creature and contact CROW.
The tortoise became Patient #3660.
"The tortoise was about the size of my hand that is, the
size of a sandwich," said CROW Vet Dr. Amber McNamara.
/ "There were punctures in his carapace, and the cranial end of his
S plastron was fractured in four places. There were pieces of shell
missing around his left shoulder."
Staff gave him pain medication and antibiotics and began to clean away the grass,
dirt and other debris. However, they had to be careful of the puncture wounds, which
may have penetrated as deep as his lungs. "These can be life-threatening injuries," said
Dr. Amber.
The tiny tortoise spent the night in an incubator in ICU. Staff covered his wounds
with bandages.
"He was quiet the first 24 hours, but after that he became quite active," said Dr.
Amber. "He did not want to sit still for his dressing changes."
Staff soaked the turtle in a tub every other day, and kept him in a warm environ-
ment while managing his wounds and fractures.
On November 11 he made the trip with the other animals to the new hospital; he
is now one of a small number of patients who made the crossing from the old hospital,
and is a little bit of walking history.
The tortoise spent seven to eight weeks in bandages.
"We often took him out to the lettuce garden (a 6-foot x 3-foot structure), which he
really enjoyed it served as his own private suite," said Dr. Amber. "Many of the tor-
toises like to sleep off their injuries and stay hunkered down inside the clinic, but this
one liked to wander around. He has been a mover and a shaker from Day 2."
The intrepid little tortoise is nearing release now. He still sleeps in the reptile room
in the hospital, but he will soon spend evenings in an outdoor cage to get acclimated
to evening temperatures.
"He had a lot of trauma for a little guy, but he's doing great and we're hopeful for a
spring release," said Dr. Amber.

Shell Museum
In Search Of
Volunteers
Adocent is an indispensable mem-
ber of a museum team. Their role
is designed to educate, intrigue
and assist visitors and to participate
in various public outreach programs
designed to generate interest in the
mission of the museum and encourage
future generations of researchers, educa-
tors, and collectors.
In The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum,
Great Hall of Shells docents provide guid-
ance to visitors, answer questions and
give guests a general overview of exhibit
features. Docents receive extensive train-
ing about the collection, exhibits, the
types of questions people ask, and how
to deal with a variety of social situations.
After completing training, the docents are
given a museum nametag that identifies
them as a valuable museum resource.
In exchange for their time, docents
receive ongoing education, invitations to
special events, a copy of the newsletter,
bridge toll reimbursement, and a museum
store discount. Generally, docents volun-
teer several hours a week but their sched-
ule is totally determined by their interest
and availability.
Potential docents submit an applica-
tion and are interviewed by a member of
the staff about their interests and avail-
ability. Docents must be 18 years of age.
Unique skills such as the ability to speak
a foreign language are valued but are
not a requirement. Enthusiasm, a desire
to learn, an appreciation for the natu-
ral world, and commitment are valued
docent characteristics.
If you have an interest in becom-
ing a Great Hall of Shells docent, come
to the museum for an open house on
Friday, March 19 from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
Attendees will take a tour, hear about the
mission and history of the museum and
watch an informative mollusk video. Light
refreshments will follow the program.

If you have an interest in becoming a
docent but are unable to attend the event,

Attention
Sanibel-Captiva
Gardeners
he 42nd Master Gardener Lecture
Series will be held on Thursday,
March 4 at 10 a.m. at the Sanibel
Library. The speakers will be Holly
Downing and James Evans of the City
of Sanibel's Department of Natural
Resources. They will discuss the status
of current projects and outline future
programs for the city.
The main topic will be Restoring
Sanibel Ecosystems such as the Sea Oats
Restoration Project (essential to the sta-
bility of the dunes on Sanibel's beaches)
and other initiatives such as continued
removal of exotic invasive species.
Cities that are many times larger in
population and area do not have the
benefit of a full-time staff of three profes-
sional biologists who also partner with
SCCF and "Ding" Darling making pres-
ervation of this remarkable ecosystem the
highest priority.
The recent creation of a city fertilizer
program and an educational DVD by the
Department of Natural Resources has
become the model for Lee County and
most of Southwest Florida. Their pro-
gram will be enhanced by a remarkable
Power Point program and a Q&A session
for the attendees.
The lecture is free and open to the
public but seating is limited.#

Students Perform Shakespeare


me sruaenrs reaa mneir scripts


The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theater welcomed children from the after-
school program Fit4Life to its stage Friday, February 19.
The group, from The Sanibel School, wanted to experience performing on
an actual stage. Led by volunteer Judith Jones, the third graders tackled a scene from
Shakespeare's A Midsummer Nights Dream. The children donned costumes and took
turns playing the various roles, which included a ferocious, yet adorable, lion.
"We love having children come to the theater. They are the future of the arts." said
marketing director Madison Mitchell. "With budgets being cut in schools across the
nation it is great to see the students on the island embracing Shakespeare at such a
young age and having fun with it."
After rehearsing the scene for about an hour, Schoolhouse artistic producer Victor
Legarreta and Mitchell took the children on a tour of the theater, including the back-
stage production area.
"They loved it!" said Legarreta. "Hopefully some of these children will be a part of
our summer program or even come back when they're a little older and work with us
as actors. "


Songwriters Blend To
Headline Wendy Webb
O n March 10 at 7 p.m.,
The Community House
will present another in /
its monthly Songwriters Blend
Series. "After trying for sev-
eral months to match schedules
with Wendy Webb, we did it
and expect another packed .
house," said Danny Morgan,

Productions, books the songwrit
ers. In a casual coffee house
atmosphere, Webb, who is a
local songwriter and musician,
will entertain the audience with
original songs including those
from her recently released solo
album, Moon on Havana.
Webb's folksy jazz and piano
blues have received rave reviews,
including one by Steve Dougherty
of People Magazine, who wrote
that she is a "stunning, undiscov-
ered secret." She is no secret to
many islanders and the Jensen
brothers of Jensen's on the Gulf
and Jensen's Twin Palms Resort
and Marina appreciate her tal- Wendy Webb
ent and music so much, they are
sponsoring the concert.
So join your friends and neighbors, sit back and enjoy a glass of wine, a mixed
drink, a soda or a cup of coffee and maybe even a homemade treat from Salli
Kirkland's kitchen. As always, The Sanibel Bean will provide the coffee to complete
the coffee house ambience. Tickets are $12 and should be purchased in advance by
contacting The Community House at 472-2155.0

On a Sidewalk on a Hill in Rome
by Raymond Buck
Her face soft pressed into sidewalk stone
her rusted cup thrust forward at the tip
of bronzed gnarled fingers reaching
toward a road where cars streamed past
those fingers the only part of her body
exposed to a sun that treated her gently
warming ancient bones beneath torn
cloth
layered from head to prayer bent back
her prayer like many prayers a begging
for sustenance for the capacity to con-
tinue
whatever life a gypsy crone might fancy
when lifted from an unforgiving surface
on a steep Roman hill where Rome
passed
her by while casual clad tourists heading
from the Trevi fountain to posh via
Veneto
dropped coins into the waters of her
need.
Anniversary Waltz
by Raymond Buck
Going and coming back twice
the same melody over and over
a never ending Anniversary Waltz
an American tune in an Italian tunnel
played by a boy of eleven or twelve
a gypsy perhaps with soulful eyes
a child who should be at school
not in a long winding pedestrian tun-
nel
on the tiles huddled fingers racing over
the keys of a small shiny accordion
his face with big eyes the face of the
boy
Caravaggio immortalized holding a
lute
this child reads the faces of passersby
far beneath the surface of ordinary life
he draws their eyes to the cap before
him
a meager collection of coins within
is there but one song in his tunneled
world?
Poet Ray Buck, who has read his
poetry often at Open Mics at The Bean
and at the semi-annual Writers Reads,
is enjoying a series of solo readings and
book signing for his new book of poetry
South Of Providence on the island this
season.
Buck is the Sanibel Historical Museum

publicist and article contributor to the

nent loan. Some of the shells that will be
highlighted in the presentation include:
Lyncina broderipii, Barycypraea fultoni
amorimi, Zoila perlae perlae, Umbilia
capricornica, and Umbilia armeniaca.
Dr. Leal also will discuss the
Macleaniella moskalevi, the deepest-
found mollusk on record. It is one of
many mollusk types that are part of the

Documentaries, Drama, And

Music Showcased In March Films

new releases, documentaries, and drama in the Monday Night Film Series.
Refreshments and lively discussions on Gainer Veranda follow each film.

March 1 Throw Down Your Heart (2008) U.S., Not rated
March 8 Everlasting Moments (2008) Sweden, Not rated
March 15 no film
March 22 Paris (2008) France, Rated R, sSubtitles
March 29 Selections from this year's Black Maria Film & Video Festival
Winner of numerous awards, Throw Down Your Heart follows American banjo
virtuoso Bela Fleck on his journey to Africa to explore the little known African roots
of the banjo and record an album. It's a boundary-breaking musical adventure that cel-
ebrates the beauty and complexity of Africa an Africa that is very different from what
is often seen in the media today.
Based on a true story, Everlasting Moments centers on a young, poor woman
who in the early 20th century wins a camera at the lottery an event that allows her
see the world through new eyes and changes her life. The film won numerous awards
and was nominated for two Golden Globes.
The 2008 French film Paris is a cinematic love letter to the city of light. It is full
of romantic angst and crisscrossing storylines. While waiting for a heart transplant
that could save his life, Pierre has his world invaded by his sister, played by Juliette
Binoche, and her children. The growing awareness of his impending mortality, as well


as the rediscovery of his sister, gives Pierre
a very different sense of how to live his life.
Named after the world's first motion
picture studio built by Thomas Edison in
1893, Black Maria Film + Video Festival is
an annual, international, juried competition
and award tour, which features bold con-
temporary work. Since 1981, the festival

Black Drum Are Everywhere
-. by Capt. Matt Mitchell

| halfway decent conditions out there. Braving the cold and
the wind last week, we caught some fish but it was not on
fire by any means.
Black drum were the highlight of the week with fish up to 28
1 i inches and 12 pounds taken. We did catch sheepshead, rat reds,
S trout, ladyfish and a few pompano too but finding a good bite
A' J took work.
On the bright side, once you did find fish feeding it was win-
tertime mixed bag action with four or five species caught out of
one hole.
Downsizing the bait to small pieces of shrimp is what it took
to get the action going. Using these tiny little baits caught the largest fish of the week.
Double-hooking the shrimp chunk on a lead 1/4 oz. jig head then working it slow,
bouncing and dragging the bottom in deeper channels, really did the trick catching all
species of fish. With the water so stirred up from the wind, fish are feeding more by
scent then sight. Also with colder than usual water temperatures the slow moving fish
find it easier to eat just a little snack-size chunk than chasing down a whole, live, frisky
shrimp.
I have caught more black drum this winter than I can ever remember. They seem
to be everywhere that I target redfish and sheepshead. Though in the same family as
the popular redfish, they only seem to be caught during the winter months. Younger,
smaller black drum are often mistaken for sheepshead as they have black and white
vertical stripes. These stripes fade as the fish get larger.
Upon closer inspection, black drum have a totally different mouth than a sheep-
shead with no teeth and a crusher in their throat just like a redfish. When lifted out of
the water they often make a drumming noise. They are fun to catch but do not make

the 15-inch minimum but there have been a few bigger ones in the mix. Our big trout
for the week measured 23 inches and was caught on a soft plastic shrimp jig. Some
of the bigger sand holes on the east side of Macever Keys and Regla Island have been
loaded with trout and ladyfish. Drifting through these sandholes while bouncing jigs on
the bottom has made for some of the best action in town. There have also been lots
of the smaller silver/sugar trout in the mix too.
Redfishing was tough last week with most of the reds on the smaller side of the
slot. Deeper mangrove shorelines on the low tides held a few but redfishing for me has
just not been good. Places I have caught tons of the rat reds this month in previous
years have producing few. Areas around Blind Pass and Wulfert Keys have held some,
with only an occasional keeper.
Luckily these same redfish spots have been loaded with sheepshead and the unex-
pected black drum.

Monday Night Movie

Throw Down Your Heart
by Priscilla Friedersdorf
Ssn't that what we all want, desiring something so much, lov-
J ing something so much, believing in something so much that

splendidly photographed BIG ARTS film for this week is a look
at just such a man, Bela Fleck, who is passionately involved
in finding the roots of his music. It will be shown at 7 p.m.
Monday night, March 1 in Schein Hall.
A gentle documentary travelogue, Throw Down Your Heart
takes us with Fleck, an American banjo virtuoso, as he journeys
to the African countries of Uganda, Tanzania, Gambia and Mali.
In these disparate lands, Fleck attempts, and succeeds in discov-
ering the musical African roots of his instrument. .. ....




.i ........... .. . .


.. .... .
Bela Fleck playing his banjo outside of a brick hut in a small village
In each country he finds other gifted musicians; banjo players who have local banjo
traditions which represent their particular styles of playing and individual talents. He
........... learns of musical innovations and changes to stringed instruments that have developed
in each of the countries through the ages. These African artists combine their styles
-...... .. and join Fleck as he plays along with them; recording and filming their sessions for this
highly praised documentary released in 2009.
... ....Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at BIG ARTS in advance or on the evening
S..... .. ... of the showing. Refreshments will be served following the film on the Gainer Veranda.
.. ..... Terry Nagle will introduce the film and lead the discussion afterwards. Phone 395-

36 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 26, 2010

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF MARCH 1, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Having
second thoughts could be a good thing, even
if you're determined to go through with your
plans. You might find it worthwhile to take a
fresh look at how things have been set up.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Financial
matters could continue to be a problem until
you're able to straighten out some of the
more pesky situations. Once that happens, the
rest should be easier to unsnarl.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family
matters once again take center stage, and
should be dealt with competently and quickly.
And, again, insist on others taking on their
fair share of the responsibilities.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your cre-
ative pursuits seem to be running into a road-
block. But rather than blame outside factors,
look within to see if you might be holding
back your efforts for some reason.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Keep that
keen Cat's Eye focused on relevant aspects
of this new situation in your life. Don't be
distracted by trivial matters. You need the
pertinent facts before making a decision.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
As much as you prefer doing things on your
own, continue to accept help if you still need
to resolve the problem affecting your project.
Some cheerful news is about to come your
way.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
While you might begrudge the added time it
will take to get your project from point A to
B to C, etc., you could benefit from the facts
that will emerge over this expanded time
span.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Regarding your workplace suggestions, be
prepared to produce the facts to counter reac-


tions from skeptics who feel your approach is
unreasonable or even impossible.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Savvy Sagittarians will look
for work-related answers on their own rather
than rely on unproved assumptions. It might
take more time to do so, but the payoff is
worth it.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Your aspects continue to favor family
issues, with special emphasis this week on
changes in and around your home. Get every-
one to suggest what he or she would like to
see done.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
A matter you thought had been settled might
still produce surprises. Best advice: Continue
to gather facts to bolster your position just in
case you need to produce them quickly.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
While your instincts are usually right when
discerning twixtt truth and deception, you
could benefit from doing more research on
the new "prospect" that you've been pitched.
BORN TH IS WEEK: Your wisdom is
only matched by your generosity, making you
the sort of friend everyone hopes to have.


On March 6, 1475, Michelangelo
Buonarroti, the greatest of the Italian
Renaissance artists, is born. His most impor-
tant early work was the Pieta (1498), a sculp-
ture that showed the body of Christ in the lap
of the Virgin Mary. Demonstrating masterful
skill, Michelangelo extracted the two perfect-
ly balanced figures of the Pieta from a single
block of marble.
On March 3, 1873, Congress enacts the
so-called Comstock Law, making it illegal
to send any "obscene, lewd or lascivious"
book through the mails. The law was named
after Anthony Comstock, a salesman from


Connecticut, who devoted his life to fight-
ing what he perceived as vice, particularly
obscenity and gambling.
On March 4, 1888, Knute Rockne is
born in Voss, Norway. He would go on to
become one of the most successful coaches
in the history of college football. In his 13
years as coach of Notre Dame, he recorded
105 wins, 12 losses and 5 ties for a winning
percentage of .881, the highest in the history
of college or professional football.
On March 1, 1897, the Winton Motor
Carriage Company is organized in Cleveland,
with Alexander Winton as president. A year
later, Winton won a race at Daytona Beach,
Fla., driving his Winton Bullet to an average
speed of 68 mph and becoming the first per-
son to break the mile-per-minute barrier.
On March 2, 1925, the first nationwide
highway numbering system is instituted to
minimize confusion. Later, interstate highway
numbering would be improved by colored
signs and the odd-even demarcation that dis-
tinguishes between north-south and east-west
travel, respectively.
On March 7, 1955, the first Broadway
play to be televised in color, featuring the
original cast, airs. The play was "Peter Pan,"
starring Mary Martin.
On March 5, 1963, the Hula-Hoop, a
hip-swiveling toy that became a huge fad
across America when it was first marketed by
Wham-O in 1958, is patented. An estimated
25 million Hula-Hoops were sold in its first
four months of production alone. Following
the Hula-Hoop, Wham-O produced the
Superball, Water Wiggle, Silly String, Slip 'n'
Slide and the Hacky Sack


It was British journalist Jeremy
Campbell who made the following sage
observation: "Computers are good at swift,


accurate computation and at storing great
masses of information. The brain, on the
other hand, is not as efficient a number
cruncher and its memory is often highly
fallible; a basic inexactness is built into its
design. The brain's strong point is its flex-
ibility."
In 1911, it became illegal in China to
wear a pigtail.
One of Ernest Hemingway's early
English teachers claimed that the future
Nobel Prize winner would "never learn to
write."
More from the files of hangover cures
from around the world: In Japan, pickled
plums are reputed to ease the morning-after
ails; in Italy, it's (quite sensibly) coffee. The
Chinese drink strong green tea, while in the
Netherlands it's the hair of the dog the
Dutch advocate beer as a remedy. Danes eat
salt, while Mexicans eat shrimp (I'll take the
Mexican remedy any day). Perhaps the odd-
est remedy is practiced in Russia: Sufferers
there head to the sauna, where they proceed
to whip out the toxins with leafy birch
branches. No word on what they do in winter,
when the birches are, presumably, leafless.
The Dwight D. Eisenhower National
System of Interstate and Defense Highways
-- better known as the Interstate Highway
System -- is the largest public works project
in the history of the world. At 46,876 miles,
it's also the world's largest highway system.
Stephen Foster, known as the Father of
American Music, originally got paid a grand
total of 2 cents for each of his musical scores
that was sold.


"There is no nonsense so arrant that it
cannot be made the creed of the vast major-
ity by adequate governmental action." -
Bertrand Russell

38 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 26, 2010

Sanibel's Croc
Memorialized
On Canvas
by Brian Johnson
ike many other islanders, artist
Myra Roberts had a visceral reac-
ion when she read the front page
news in the Island Sun about the death
of Sanibel's lone crocodile. The animal
gained fame for living the furthest north
of any crocodile in the United States.
With her home bordering the Sanibel
River, Roberts frequently saw the croco-
dile with her own eyes.
"Sometimes I would see her on the
bank, and I would take binocoluars and
watch her -- with her mouth open for
half an hour," said Roberts. "There was
the tale that she was taken off the island
at some point, but came back on her
own. I think that's fascinating."
Roberts felt a strong impulse to
sketch the iconic reptile, and began to
gather material. She happened to be in
Arundel's Hallmark around that time and
noticed a man, a Mr. Schultz, making a
print of his photo of the crocodile; she
asked him if she could use it as a refer-
ence point for her upcoming painting,
and he readily agreed. She also used a
photo taken by Blake Sobzcak, a friend
of the family.
Working on the oil painting in her
studio, she sought to capture the croc's
trademark expression. "I wanted to do
a close-up of her face her teeth, her

In the tradition of Toulouse-Lautrec
and other French artists, she decided to
include lettering in the painting and used
the story written by Island Sun reporter
Anne Mitchell as the backdrop together
with a mustard hue. It took her seven
hours to transpose the first part of the
article by hand with her paint brush.
"I thought Anne did an amazing job
with the story, and the title said it all,"
said Roberts.

Public Joins In Graffiti Art Project


Giant collaborative drawing in a non-judgemental atomsphere
by Erin O'Brien
This year at Edison State College (ESC), many new events, activities, and clubs
are available for students, staff, faculty, and the public. One of ESC's new stu-
dent clubs is called Cafe, Arts and Media (CAM). During the week of February
8 to 11, CAM hosted Graffiti Art! in the Rush Collections Gallery of the newly-
renovated Rush Library.
CAM encouraged non-artists and artists alike to join in the project and express
themselves with drawing, painting, writing, whatever they'd like, on a huge collabora-
tive mural. The atmosphere was non-judgmental, relaxed, and positive. This activity
has encouraged social interactions and provided an opportunity for students to speak
with each other and talk about art.


People of all ages participated
Dr. Maria Cahill, Dr. Eileen Deluca, and Professor Elaine Schaffer are faculty advi-
sors to CAM (Professor Dana Roes-Kern also assisted) and they are thrilled with the
outcome.
Cahill said, "It's about having fun and expressing ourselves. We wanted students,
faculty, staff, and the public to come draw even if they think they can't -- let loose,
play with color, let their imaginations go."
On the mural there are several doodles and drawings that students have created as
representations of themselves and a way to be heard. References to the recent Haiti
tragedy, music, politics, philosophy, and religion as well as some very skilled drawings
and paintings are just some of the things that can be found on the mural.
Graffiti Art! had over 200 participants, including children from the Edison State
College Child Care Center.
The mural will hang in the Rush Cafe (the campus coffee shop), next to the library,
on the second floor of building J, at ESC, until the semester's end. The public is invit-
ed to see it.
Erin O'Brien is a student at Edsion State College in Fort Myers, Florida.4

Royal Entertainment
At Broadway Palm
by Di Saggau
The King
and I, in
nmy opin-
ion, is a must-
see production,
no matter how
many times
you ve seen
it before. It's
playing at the
Broadway Palm
Dinner Theatre
with a terrific
cast, exquisite
costumes, glori-
ous sets and
superb, memora-
ble tunes written r
by Rogers and -
Hammerstein.
The show
er sdon The King and Anna
premiered on
Broadway in
1951 and won five Tony Awards. This production deserves one too. The show is
based on the book Anna and the King of Siam by Margaret Landon, which itself was
based on the memoirs of the real Anna Leonowens, the Englishwoman who taught
the royal children in the palace.
Galloway Stevens is terrific in the role of the King of Siam. He combines authority
and a touching vulnerability. He is appropriately staunch and commanding but also
shows the king's soft side. His A Puzzlement number is excellent.
Amanda Morgan is spunky and vivacious in the role of Anna. Her singing voice is
lovely, and suited to her character. I Whistle A Happy Tune and Getting to Know
You are just two of the songs she delivers so well.
Stevens and Morgan bring splendid star quality to their roles. The interaction
between the two is quite engaging, especially during the scene where the king insists
her head not be higher than his. Shall We Dance is another favorite where Anna
teaches the kKing to dance. It is delightful watching the connection grow between the
two in conflicting cultures of east and west.
Supporting players deliver wonderful performances, with Yoon Jeong Seong in
great voice as Tuptim, and Ya Han Chang as Lady Thiang. Jose Sampedro as Lun
Tha, sings beautifully and powerfully with Seong in their duet of I Have Dreamed. The
ensemble performers and the corps of adorable children are excellent.
The Small House of Uncle Thomas, is a standout presentation with superb chore-
ography by Amy Marie McCleary. The lush costumes are another highlight of this pro-
duction, gorgeous and resplendent in color and fabric. By now you can tell that I really
liked this show. It was so professional and enjoyable, et cetera, et cetera and so forth.
The King and I plays through April 10 at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. You
can reserve tickets by calling 278-4422 by visiting www.BroadwayPalm.com, or stop
by the box office at 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers.

Speaker Sees
No End To
War On Terror
by Max
Friedersdorf
r. Francis
, Fukuyama,
S' r" professor
.t .." of international
"" political economy
at the Johns
Hopkins School
of Advanced
International
Studies and an
influential voice in American foreign
policy, sees no end to the so-called "war
on terror."
Speaking before The Forum at BIG
ARTS lecture series on February 14,
Fukuyama predicted the struggle against
worldwide terrorism will "go on for a
very, very long time, so long as the politi-
cal causes exist that motivates it."


An outspoken opponent of the war
in Iraq, Fukuyama charged that the Bush
administration militarized the war on ter-
ror, and neglected military spending on
the long term strategic threat from China.
During the question period, Fukuyama
was asked, "How the invasion of Iraq
and Afghanistan contributed to world
order?" The speaker responded that, "We
misused our position as a superpower; it
went to our heads; we are too ready to
use our military power which feeds anti-
Americanism."
Fukuyama took his Sanibel audience
on a "tour of the world," discussing the
challenges posed to the U.S. by radical
Islamics and China, and the breakdown
of international institutions, and the threat
from advanced technology.
Fukuyama explained that many of the
Muslim terrorists were living in Europe,
the sons and grandsons of traditional
Muslims. Caught between their traditional

Island Cinema & BIG ARTS Academy Award Matinee Series

Precious And A Serious Man
by Priscilla Friedersdorf
he series of films which have been -n
chosen from the list of nominees for
this year's Academy Awards contin-
ues at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 3 at
the Island Cinema. The Island Cinema has L _
been able to obtain two of this year's nomi-
nees, Precious and A Serious Man. They
will be shown simultaneously in adjoining
theaters so patrons can choose which film
to attend.
The Oscar nominated directors give us
a close look at two very separate cultures.
Diverse, and as presented, both in some
ways mentally punitive.
Precious by Director Lee Daniel is
brutally honest about the life of an obese,
illiterate Harlem teenager; physically and
mentally abused by her parents. Pregnant
with her second child, she enrolls in an
alternative education program where she
finds acceptance and expression through
writing. Gabourey Sidibe, who plays
Precious Jones, has been nominated for
Best Actress. Other nominations for the
film include; Best Picture, Daniel for Best
Director (the first black director of a Best
Picture nominee), Mo'Nique for Best
Supporting Actress and Best Adapted
Screenplay (from the novel Push by
Sapphire) for Geoffrey Fletcher.
Another Oscar nominee for best picture
is A Serious Man, a dramatic comedy
from the Coen Brothers who were also
nominated for Best Original Screenplay. Above: Gabourey Sidibe stars as Claireece
A humorous retelling of the Book of Job; "Precious" Jones; below: Paula Patton as
Larry, (Michael Stuhlbarg) is a kindly, Ms. Rain in Precious


harmless, physics pro-
fessor, worried about
earning tenure, who
must also cope with the
sudden unraveling of
his home life. He seeks
advice from several
levels of rabbis, and an
attorney; all displaying
traits of consuming self-
interest and coldly oblivi-
ous to Larry's religious
and legal needs. As AO
Scott observed in The
New York Times, "You
don't have to be Jewish
to like this movie, but
it will hurt more if you
are." This is my person-
al choice for one of the
top films of the year;
the Coen Brothers have
their stiletto sardonic
humor honed to its fin-
est blade.
Both films are rated
"R." Tickets are $7.50
and can be purchased
at the Island Cinema.
Everyone is invited to
attend a joint discussion
of the films at 3:30 p.m.
at The Sanibel Bean
following the films. The
Bean is located at 2240
Periwinkle Way.

Film Festival Brings Award
Winning Shows To Alliance


Pat Shortt as Josie and Conor Ryan as David copyright Element Pictures
The upcoming film in the Theatre Conspiracy and Alliance for the Arts Film
Series was described by the Sunday Independent as "Excellent, heartbreak-
ing, an oddly hilarious performance." The powerful story Garage is showing
in the Alliance's Foulds Theatre on March 5 at 7:30 and March 6 at 7 p.m.
Josie (Pat Shortt) has spent 20 years as the caretaker of a crumbling gas station in
small-town Ireland. Despite loneliness and the fact that his neighbors treat him as a
figure of fun, he's always good natured, absurdly optimistic and, in his own peculiar
way, happy; he has his place it might not be great, but it's his. Garage is the story
of Josie's hapless search for intimacy over the course of a summer which sees his little
niche threatened, and his life changed forever.
As well as winning the CICAE Art and Essai Cinema Prize at the Cannes Film
Festival and the Best Film Prize at Turin Film Festival, Garage has been an official

her living as an anchorwoman on TV back in Omaha; Smith was a writer and pro-

company in Michigan; and Maryanne Daly, gave her life to kids and grandkids and she
isn't finished yet collecting stories from that world.

After the featured storytellers, in the second half of the program members of the audi-
ence can tell a story as well.
Dr. Sid Simon is the MC of the event, which runs from 1 to 2 p.m. in Meeting

evening, March 3, 7:30 p.m. at BIG
ARTS' Schein Performance Hall, as part
of the "Ding" Darling Bookstore's 2010

In his groundbreaking epic biography,
Brinkley draws on never-before-published
materials to examine the life and achieve-
ments of "our naturalist president."
By setting aside more than 230 mil-
lion acres of wild America for posterity
between 1901 and 1909, Theodore
Roosevelt made conservation a universal
endeavor. Tracing the role that nature
played in Roosevelt's storied career,
Brinkley brilliantly analyzes the influence
that the works of John James Audubon
and Charles Darwin had on the young
man who would become the 26th presi-
dent.
His 940-page opus what The New
York Times called a "vast, inspiring and
enormously entertaining book" is avail-
able at the "Ding" Darling Bookstore now
and will be sold at BIG ARTS the evening
of the presentation. Tickets are on sale

religion and modern Europe, some have
become alienated and radicalized by
such leaders as Bin Laden who opposes
American policies.
"China is a much more serious chal-
lenge," Fukuyama asserted, "because
it has mastered the modern world and
made great progress under an authoritar-
ian regime. China gets it done and has
made rapid growth because they have an
advantage under their system."
However, Fukuyama explained, the
Chinese have a "very deep problem"
because at the local level the peasants
are arbitrarily moved or their land stolen
which generates huge social discontent.
Fukuyama believes the Chinese leader-
ship is sitting on a potential powder keg
because of its "unequal society" which is
generating 6,000 local protests yearly...
they have a history of getting rid of bad
emperors, Fukuyama noted.z

First Grader
Skates To
Second Place
The excitement of the
Winter Olympics figure
skating competitions was
heightened for seven-year-old
Osa Nuenlist-Zavala, a 1st grader
at The Sanibel School. Osa
took up figure skating about 14
months ago and on February 15
she found out what it's like to
show off her moves. She placed
second in the Presidents' Day
U.S. Figure Skating basic skills
competition in Basic 5 and 6 for
skaters age seven. The event was
held at Germain Arena, Estero.
She had to complete various
moves including skating back-
wards on the outside edge in a
cirlce, crossovers, one-foot spin
with three revolutions, a forward
arabesque and a lunge.
Osa is the daughter of Willi and
Silvia Nuenlist-Zavala. She attends
classes at Germain Arena.

Osa Nuenlist-Zavala, age 7


Shooting An Eagle On The 13th Hole
.


The approach


n eagle at The Dunes is one thing
when it's a golf score but this
was an actual eagle, an immature
bald eagle keeping its eye on the ball. The pick-up
Ann Humphrey shot these photo-
graphs on February 16 on the 13th hole
at The Dunes Golf Club on Sanibel.
"After my playing partner Cantor Eagleson hit her drive, the young bald eagle
decided to check it out and after playing with it, picking it up and holding it in its tal-
ons, it dropped it and flew away," said Humphrey.
"We thought it was much more exciting than our golf."


Fashion Show
And Auction
A Big Hit
T he Sanibel Historical Museum
and Village luncheon, style show
and auction, held on Tuesday,
February 16, was a big success. The
pink and green theme was carried out
at the Captiva Island Yacht Club with
bougainvillea, greens, and pink napkins
and bows on the tables. Also decorating
the tables were fanciful ceramic shoes
designed by JoAnne Bedient, a local
clay artist. The mostly female attendees
were dressed elegantly for the occasion.
Allan Hall entertained with his piano
music which highlighted the featured
eras.
Special thanks goes out to all those
who made this event such an overwhelm-
ing success. The funds raised will enable
the museum to purchase audio/visual
equipment to enhance the visitor's experi-
ence while touring the seven historical
buildings. From all the volunteers, a
hearty thank you goes to:

2B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 26, 2010
Third in a series
Show Me
The Money
by Arlene Knox, Director of Relationships,
Good Neighbor Community
Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva
What motivates a person to freely
give to a nonprofit? Is it an
image on television of extreme
suffering? Is it a phone call from a
grandchild asking for your help with
a school fundraiser? Is it because you
volunteer for a group and want to do
more? Or is it because of tax incentives
to help preserve wealth for future gen-
erations? Is it a feeling of compassion
and desire to help improve an area of
society that needs attention?
In truth, it is all of these things.
Donors are motivated by a variety of
reasons to give to their favorite charities.
The reasons are as unique as the person
making the gift and all are valid expres-
sions of philanthropy in our society.
Gifts from individuals by volume make
up the largest source of donations for
charities, followed by corporate and foun-
dation gifts. While there are a greater
number of individual gifts, the size of the
gift is smaller. Corporations and founda-
tions usually provide more significant dol-
lars. Sometimes, nonprofits will depend
solely on individual dollars and overlook
the more substantial foundation grants
that can provide much-needed support
for innovative or new programs.
And that is focus of Part Three in our


series on philanthropy on the islands.
How does a nonprofit find foundation
funding to carry out its mission?
Nonprofits seek funding in a variety of
ways: event fundraisers, mailing appeals,
bequests, grants, sponsorships, and user
fees are some of the most common.
When seeking funding from foundations,
island nonprofits can utilize the following
resources:
1) Foundation Center Cooperating
Collection. Wouldn't it be great if you
could magically type in a word to
describe your nonprofit's work and find
a list of funders who will actually sup-
port your mission? Look no further than
the Foundation Center Cooperating
Collection. Send a volunteer, staff
member, or board member to visit
the collection, located in Fort Myers
at the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation offices. The Cooperating
Collection is an in-depth, comprehensive
database of grantmakers from all over the
United States. The database includes the
grantmakers' fields of interest, their grant-
making history, contact information, as
well as application and grantmaking pro-
cess information. You can search online
for private, corporate, and community
foundations that may fund your mission,
or you may check out books or maga-
zines about nonprofit management.
2) Apply for grants from the commu-
nity foundation. Community foundations
offer many types of competitive and
non-competitive grant cycles. A competi-
tive grant cycle is one that is open to all
nonprofits by application throughout the
year. The Southwest Florida Community


Foundation grants for project-specific,
capital, and technical assistance purposes.
A non-competitive grant is distributed
from designated and donor-advised funds
for a specific purpose. Once all of the
applications are received, the foundation
engages staff and community volunteers
to review the project, budgets, narrative,
background materials, and conducts site
visits when necessary.
Do you need to train staff, bring in a
consultant, conduct a board retreat, or
purchase a piece of equipment? Capacity
grants are offered each quarter for up
to $1,500 for these types of needs. The
next deadline for a capacity grant applica-
tion is March 15. Are you launching a
new program or project?
Are you collaborating with other non-
profits on a new or improved initiative?
A Major Annual Grant may provide up to
$25,000 for this type of need. The dead-
line for application is May 7.
3) Community Focus Funding.
Sometimes the community foundation will
have funds available for a grant cycle but
will invite specific nonprofits to apply for
funding. Usually, this occurs when there
is an urgent or pressing community need
that is best addressed by comprehensive
funding approach. In the fall of 2009, the
Good Neighbor Community Foundation
of Sanibel- Captiva (GNCFSC), a division
of the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation, administered a grant cycle
that focused on the social service needs
of island residents. The focus of the fall
2010 grant cycle will be determined by
the GNCFSC grantmaking committee.
Island nonprofits may utilize all of


the grant-making opportunities avail-
able at the community foundation. At
the same time, the Foundations Center
Cooperating Collection will reveal new
sources of funding.
The Southwest Florida Community
Foundation has been supporting the
communities of Lee, Charlotte, Collier,
Glade, and Hendry counties for over 33
years. Through 331 endowed funds, the
community Foundation has provided
more than $45 million in grants and
scholarships. For more information, call
274-5900, or log onto www.floridacom-

Zonta Home Tour To Feature
Historic Kinzie Property


The Kannrys' kitchen with bar
On a quiet street on Sanibel's west end is a spacious property that was part
of the islands' historic farming and fishing area called Wulfert. It was owned
in the early 1900s by the Kinzie family who built a homestead and estab-
lished Sanibel's first steamship mail service between the island's east end and Punta
Rassa. With minor interruptions, the steamship service continued into the 1950s
when plans for a causeway were launched. In 1956, a one-way ferry ticket cost $1
for an automobile, 47 cents for an adult and 25 cents for a child.
When Jim and Marsha Kannry acquired the property in the mid-1990s, they pre-
served the original cottage, with its distinction of having survived the devastating hur-
ricane of 1926, and refurbished it, with minimal updates, as a guest retreat. Nearby,
they designed and built a gracious, low-country style home to take advantage of the
sweeping view of Dinkins Bayou.


Exterior of the Kannry home
The Kannry home and the cottage will both be featured on the ninth annual A
Peek at the Unique, the principal fundraiser for the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva.
This unique "two for one" will allow tour guests to step back into the past, savoring
the quiet pace of life in the early 20th century, then tour a stylish, modern home
with every amenity. Peekers will also appreciate the extensive native plantings that
have been nurtured by the Kannrys as an appropriate setting for the unique piece of
Sanibel's history on which their home stands.
The new home is generously proportioned with spacious porches, rocking chairs,
tall windows and high ceilings. Features include solid cherry custom cabinetry, over-
sized art on the walls and a luxurious master bathroom. Marsha Kannry selected the
candy-hued palette of pinks, aquas, peaches and greens. The Kinzie cottage is simply
furnished and is believed to have the original ceilings.
On the tour, Alex F. Werner, Jr., Sanibel history enthusiast who spearheaded the
incorporation of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, will discuss at the cottage


You are passionate about Southwest Florida. You spend
your winters here. You love the sandy beaches, the sound of
a breeze playing in the palms, the art festivals, the shopping,

high quality of life in Southwest Florida. We do it with you
through endowed funds, building sustainable solutions to

Deli Delivers

For The Sanibel

School Fund
Jeff Weigel really wants to sell you a
lucky ticket and give you a free cup
of coffee.
Weigel, the owner of Sanibel Deli &
Coffee Factory, has joined other island
businesses to sell tickets to the annual car
fundraiser to benefit The Sanibel School
Fund. You get a free cup of gourmet cof-
fee when you buy a ticket at the Sanibel
Deli.
The winner of the raffle will drive away
with a 2009 GEM e4, four-passenger
electric car or $7,500 in cash.
"Businesses benefit from having a
vibrant school on the island, so it makes
sense to help out," says Weigel, whose
children attend The Sanibel School. In
fact, many of the children who attend the
school have parents who work at island
restaurants, hotels, shops and other busi-
nesses.
Other businesses on the island sell-
ing tickets include Bank of the Islands,
Congress Jewelers, The Blue Giraffe and
Sanibel Surveys.
The school fund provides educa-
tional opportunities such as the foreign
language program, technology, arts
and music resources not funded by the
county school system. Since its incep-
tion in 1998, the fund has supplied
the school with classroom audio-visual

The Web


Sanibel Alliance for Renewable Resources (SARR) has launched its official Web
site at www.sanibelenergy.com. The new site has been designed as a resource
for Sanibel residents and property owners to explore renewable resources, in
particular solar hot water heating systems. The site contains cost and payback infor-
mation of these systems, as well as explanations of the systems and processes and
links to licensed contractors who meet strict industry guidelines as well as SARR's
criteria.
"We've looked carefully at each of these contractors to ensure that they will provide
the right level of service and support to our community," said Kathy McCabe, SARR
chair and owner of Island Renewal, LLC and a Sanibel green homeowner. "Each of
these vendors is local, licensed by the City of Sanibel and is more than willing to sit
down with homeowners to aid the learning process."
SARR is open to all Sanibel and Captiva residents and property owners; businesses
licensed to perform work on Sanibel who offer environmentally-conscious services
(solar, water, electrical, landscaping, consulting, etc.); and homeowner and condomini-
um associations.
SARR is currently seeking a treasurer who is knowledgeable in 501(c)3 tax exemp-
tion, as well as individual volunteers. Those interested in serving on the executive com-
mittee should contact McCabe at kathmccabe@comcast.net.
SARR was formed in June 2009 to "...educate and encourage the residents and
property owners of Sanibel Island to become leaders in the use of renewable resourc-
es." Supported by the City of Sanibel, membership in SARR is free and open to any
Sanibel resident, homeowner or business licensed on Sanibel. If you would like to join
SARR, or for more information, visit www.sanibelenergy.com.

Rotary

Happenings
submitted by Shirley Jewell
Gosh, our Rotary meetings lately
have been so chock full of Rotary
business that sometimes we have
to hold back on what goes in to print.
I recently had to put an article on the
back burner from early February. It is
included in this week's article, along
with great information from Sanibel
Police Chief William Tomlinson, guest
speaker this week.
An understanding of what we are
now, what we are planning and where
we have come from helps us stay
grounded as people and as a com-
munity. History gives us a benchmark
from which to measure ourselves and
helps us understand not only our past
but gives us insight for future possibili-
ties... learn from the past, plan for the
future. Alex Werner, president of the
Sanibel Historical Museum & Village
and president-elect of our Rotary club,
gave us a small glimpse into Sanibel's
history. Folklore, oral history, or written
history all are represented at the museum
and village a glimpse of Sanibel from
the 1880s through the 1940s. What
a remarkable treasure the village is a
wonderful place where you can step back
in time and experience how our early
settlers lived their lives during several
decades of agricultural production on
the island. The Rutland House, Bailey's
General Store, 1926 Post Office, old
Sanibel Schoolhouse, Morning Glories


Cottage, Miss Charlotta's Tea Room,
Burnap Cottage, and the Packing House
are all restored and opened to the public.
However, Werner focused his history
lesson for the day on Sanibel's more
recent history, so he started in 1957...
go figure. He brought with him an aerial
photograph of Sanibel in 1957. The
island looked bleak in this picture. A
very destructive hurricane in 1926 had
brought 14-foot tides of saltwater over
the island, destroying the once fertile
farming areas of the 1800s and early
1900s. The natural vegetation survived
but nothing more. The beaches were still
beautiful and the shells were plentiful so
to provide an income for their families
the women turned their farmhouses into
bed and breakfasts. Tourism has replaced
farming as the economic engine of the
island. During WWII the U.S. Army Air
Corps brought in troops to train on the
islands and many returned after the war
to buy property. Land was cheap and
and taxes were low. The island became
a tourist destination and a retirement
paradise for those from the North. In the
1950s, Hugo Lindgren bought a gulf to
bay parcel of land to develop on Sanibel,
now called Shell Harbor. In addition, in
1963 Lindgren was responsible for con-
struction of the Sanibel Causeway, much
to the dismay of many residents. The
year 1967 brought the threat of high-
rise buildings, heavy density construc-
tion, and a possible four-lane highway
on Sanibel. To fight this development,
citizens formed the Sanibel-Captiva
Planning Board and, with the Sanibel-
Captiva Conservation Foundation, both
groups worked diligently to stop this


Alex Werner


development. To assure this would never
happen, Sanibel residents organized and
petitioned the state to become a self-
governing city. On November 5, 1974,
84 percent of Sanibel's registered vot-
ers went to the polls, 63.6 percent to
vote in favor of incorporation. In 1976,
the City of Sanibel formulated its own
Comprehensive Land Use Plan, control-
ling future development of the island.
In 1978 the Sanibel Preservation
Committee was formed to preserve
Sanibel's history. The committed ran the
historical museum until 2007, when the
Sanibel Historical Museum and Village,
Inc. 501(c)3 and its board of directors


took over the operational responsibilities
of the village. If you would like to learn
more about the history of Sanibel, go to
the village on Dunlop Road and maybe
you will be lucky enough to have Werner
as your docent guide. He will no doubt
impress you with his knowledge of the
past on Sanibel, but also an insight of
Sanibel today.
Now for this past week's speaker,
Sanibel Police Chief William Tomlinson.
Who of us is not impressed with a
man in uniform? Even our most manly
Rotarians snap to when they see a uni-
form. Tomlinson is a 25-year veteran of
the Sanibel Police Department. In 1985,
he took his first job in the department as
a part-time traffic aide and in 2002, he
was sworn in as Sanibel's chief of police.
Tomlinson, sort of like Sergeant Friday, is
a stick to the facts fellow. He got straight
to the point with the presentation of
crime facts about Sanibel. As the chief
said, "Sanibel is definitely a low-crime
community." Violent crimes are non-
existent, once in awhile there is a domes-
tic violence investigation, and break-ins
of both residential and vehicles have
increased slightly (mostly of unlocked
residents and cars). Traffic violations
have increased over the last two years to
around 357 this past year, and suspended
license arrests have definitely increased
(mostly non-residents). Calls to the depart-
ment have risen to about 32,000 over
the last year, but, unfortunately, along
with that demand has come a decrease in
personnel to answer the calls. There were
words of caution regarding Internet

this strong advice: do not give your credit
card number out to anyone, especially
over the phone.
Just a couple of additional notes from
Chief Tomlinson: hurricane passes -
there will not be new hurricane passes
issued this year. Last year's passes are still
in effect. "A" beach parking stickers are
now issued to residents and any property
owner on Sanibel. This is an upgrade
for non-resident property owners. Traffic
has increased lately on the island so be
courteous. This helps with traffic flow and

Portraits In Print
Master Of The
Medium, Shell-
Crafter Supreme
by Jane Vos Hogg
A s you head .
to the main
desk at the .
Sanibel Library it
is quite likely you'll
notice an immense
floral display. I'd
seen it for two
years (always won-
dering how they
kept the flowers
so fresh) before I
realized they weren't real flowers at all;
they were shells and fish bones! Large,
medium and tiny ones made petals, in
countless all-natural colors, and then
there were the leaves.and the stems and
branches.What a work of art!
But where did it come from? Enter
Goz Gosselin, shell artist par excellence.
In his working life he was a florist.
He was known for his attractive floral
displays in the Hartford, Connecticut area
where he and his wife lived. In fact, for
more than a decade he had his own shop
but when he and his wife Terri retired
22 years ago they joined the flock of
snowbirders that winters here in Sanibel
(and later Fort Myers) and summers back
home at the lake in Connecticut.
"When you were growing up what


did you think you wanted to do or be in
life?" I asked. "I'd been brought up in
the Christian faith and always assumed
I'd enter the religious life, not as a monk
but somehow formally committed After
several years I discovered I didn't have a
vocation in that area so I sought advice
from my older brother.
Knowing Gosselin's interest in flowers,
his brother suggested he investigate those
possibilities. This path led to his enrolling
at a Boston school specializing in floral
design. Course completed, he not only
got his certificate but a number of high
awards, too. He looked good enough
on paper to get a job with a local florist
immediately, a job he kept for 15 years
until he opened his own shop.
When I talked with him, Gosselin was
at The Community House where the
shell-crafters meet each Monday. Three
long tables of them were busily preparing
for their annual shell fair. He and his wife
Terri sat petaling their posies together
which brought me to my next question.
"How did you two meet? Was it an
interest in flowers, or shells?"
"No. We met at a singles square dance
group in Hartford. Terri had spotted me
and was grooming me for her daughter.
Silly. The person who really interested
me was Terri. But before he proposed to
her he went back to his older brother to
seek advice. "Don't do it. It won't work
out,." was his opinion. Gosselin smiled
at this point and shrugged. "Glad I didn't
listen that time. We celebrate our 35th
anniversary this February."
But now back to shells.


"What shell might you want to be if
you could be one?"
He laughed. "How about the Sanibel
pen. It's ugly. Everyone just steps on
them and they crack easily. The first floral
shell piece I ever did used them because,
to me, they resemble a flower petal.
Are they used often? I wondered.
"One judge told me that while a few
crafters used them I was the only one
who did it successfully. Now I like to think
of myself as the pen shell perfectionist.,"
he said.
During the 20 years Gosselin has been
a volunteer with the Community House
shellcrafters he has also been a member
of the Southwest Florida Craft Guild. Ten
years ago he entered his floral arrange-
ment (in shells) in the annual fine-craft
show, held each year at BIG ARTS.
Since it was uncased, and quite fragile,
he'd placed his entry on a pedestal set
in the corner for protection. When the
judge entered the gallery her first reaction
was, "Why are those fresh flowers in the
room. Get them out of here." The piece
stayed and yes, it won first place.
Creating intricate shell-based floral
designs and helping other crafters do
the same is where Gosselin is at these
days. Each Monday you'll find him hard
at work sharing skills and encouraging
crafters as they create the myriad entries
which will augment the annual shell fair
held here each March.
His own 120 pieces will be part of this
year's fair sale. Of particular note is the
large shadowbox flower picture he has
designed and donated for the shell fair


raffle. Done all in black and white, it's
a color scheme often thought of as his
trademark. Crisp and clearly punctuated,
it articulates the perfection of his
pieces.,

Around The Islands With Anne
A Feast Of Antique Jewelry, Paintings
And Objets D'Art On Captiva
by Anne Mitchell
T his season's big story at Albert Meadow Antiques
on Captiva is bangles and bracelets, says Josephine
Anderson, who handles that section of the store. "We
have art nouveau and Victorian bangles in gold; diamond
and platinum straight line bracelets; retro '40s tank track and
chunky gold bracelets, so if you are looking for a bracelet, this
is the place to be," she says.
I like to call Albert Meadow Antiques a moveable feast of pre-
cious items because in
the summer months,
owner David Doherty
moves the business back to Bar Harbor,
Maine.
This store specializes in antique and
museum quality jewelry, American paint-
ings, glassware including Tiffany and
native Indian rugs. There are bangles galore at Albert
The store has no less than six Georg Meadow Antiques, Captiva
Jensen of Denmark silver bracelets from
the 1930-40 period. "It is kind of exciting
to have this many," said Anderson.
There is much to see. I am always
drawn to the bold Mexican antique jewelry;
others might prefer the delicate cameos,
like one carved in white sapphire sur-
rounded by diamonds; or a selection of
mysterious-looking scarab pins and ornate
cloak brooches.
For those who'd like to learn more
about period jewelry, Anderson is giving
a talk at Captiva Library on Wednesday,
March 10 at 4:30 p.m. as part of the
library's Cultural Festival. With the aid of A collection of period jewelry at Albert
live models, she will show jewelry from Meadow Antiques

Hidden Treasures
Amethyst And Aquamarine:
Gemstones For February And March


by Dan Schuyler
d and Karen Bell
ix times each
year, this col-
umn features
Athe history mythol
i ogy, and facts sur-
rounding various
birthstones. February celebrates the
lavender and purple hues of amethyst,
and March enjoys the ocean blues and
turquoise of aquamarine.
Amethyst
Legend tells that Bacchus, the Roman
god of wine, was in a terrible mood and
decided to vent his ire by commanding
his pet tigers to attack the first person


Marya Dabrowski amethyst and aquama-
rine lariat necklace

that crossed his path. An unfortunate
young girl, named Amethyst, was
attacked and cried out to the goddess
Diana for help. The goddess obliged by
turning the girl to stone, and Bacchus
spilled an offering of wine over the girl's
petrified form, creating the deep purple
gemstone that we know as amethyst.
The word amethyst comes from
the Greek word "amethystos," or "not
drunk," referring to a magical attribute.
For many years, drinking from an ame-


thyst cup was thought to prevent drunk-
enness. Amethyst was also supposed to
cure emotional intoxication associated
with love as well as guarantee success in
sports, war, and business.
The colors of amethyst range from
light to dark purple, violet, and purple-
red. The color has long signified royalty,
dignity, and justice. The stone appears in
crowns, scepters, and other regalia from
ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome as well
as the crown jewels of Great Britain and
Russia.
Amethysts are regularly found in sizes
as large as 20 carats or more and can be
featured in a variety of cuts. The stone
is reasonably hard and durable enough
for daily wear. Some amethysts fade if
exposed to intense light for a prolonged
period of time.
Along with being the birthstone for
February, amethyst is a talisman for
Pisces as well as the gem that celebrates
sixth wedding anniversaries.
Aquamarine
The Romans believed that if the figure
of a frog was carved on an aquamarine
gem, it served to reconcile enemies and
make them friends. An aquamarine was
considered the most appropriate morn-
ing gift for a groom to give to his bride
following the consummation of their mar-
riage. The Greeks and the Romans also
associated the aquamarine as the sailor's
gem, ensuring the safe and prosper-
ous passage across stormy seas. And in
medieval times, the stone was thought to
reawaken the love of married couples and
to render soldiers invincible.

The Sumerians, Egyptians, and
Hebrews also admired and valued aqua-
marine greatly. It was a symbol of hap-
piness and everlasting youth. The aqua-
marine was also used as an antidote for
poison. Because there was an extensive
amount of poisonings amongst royalty at
the time, there were many rings and pen-
dants designed with this gemstone.
Aquamarine has been credited with
curing belching and yawning. It was
considered especially effective for curing
ailments of the jaw, throat, stomach and
liver, as well as toothaches. Aquamarine
was also used in ceremonies in the belief
that it would bring rain when needed, or
bring down drought upon enemies.
The name aquamarine comes from
Latin or "water of the sea" and is a gem-
stone-quality transparent variety of beryl,
having a delicate blue or turquoise color,
suggesting the tint of sea water. Shades of
aquamarine can range from the light blue
of the sky to the deep blue of the sea
with all shades of blue and turquoise in
between. The stone rarely has inclusions
and has good hardness and toughness,
making it an ideal gem for daily wear.
The largest aquamarine ever mined
was found in Brazil in 1910. It weighed
over 110 kg, and its dimensions were
48.5 cm long and 42 cm in diameter.
Along with being the birthstone for
March, aquamarine is a talisman for
Pisces and Scorpio as well as the gem
that celebrates 19th wedding anniversa-
ries.

All Island Glass Shatters Royal Shell's

Hopes for An Undefeated Season


Royal Shell
by Nick Brown
The Sanibel Softball League kicked off its first week of games with some stun-
ning results last Wednesday and Thursday.
All Island Glass shined up to the new season with a hot opening win against
the heavy favorites to win this year's league Royal Shell. During the off-season All
Island did some restructuring of the team that seemed to pay off. Captain Jeff Weigel
stated, "We have a new star benchwarmer named Jared Vanegas. It's a crucial role
to play during these cold nights." Whatever the changes were, it seemed to work. All
Island Glass dethroned Royal Shell 24-8. Of special note: Billy Lees of All Island Glass
hit the first home run of the season.
The Sanibel Grill Rec'N'Crew clogged up Aztec Plumbing in a potent first win
27-7.

Beachview Women's Golf
he following ladies managed to beat Beachview's head golf professional
Scott Hatto this past Wednesday:
Rhoda Dickinson, Ann Marie Sprotte, Mary Jane Proctor, Sally Lichtenstein,
Jane Fredericks, Alice Fournier, Linea Sadd, Sue McDermott, and Tina Tober.
Hatto took on the ladies for Beat the Pro Day. The ladies, armed with their handi-
caps, would each get to play Hatto on a single hole in which they would get to use
their net scores against his gross score. Hatto had quite a task in front of him in
some cases he would need to give two a two-shot advantage on a par 3. He was up
for the challenge though and managed to fare rather well with only a small portion of
the field getting the better of him. Congratulations to all the ladies who were able to
humble the head pro a little.M


Highlights from Week 20:

Sanibel 8-Ball
Pool League
Rich McCurry, Jack Dalton, Pete
Mindel, and John Earle each post-
ed two wins to lead bottom dwell-
ing Sanibel Cafe to an 8-8 tie with first
place Bunt's Ball Busters. The tie ruined
the Ball Buster's bid to win 21 straight
matches in this year's league play. The
tie also moved Sanibel Cafe to within
12 games of third place Fresh Legion
Crew and sets up a final battle for third
place next Monday night, the final night
of the 2009-2010 season.
Joe Mason's perfect 4-0 night led sec-
ond place One Ball Wonders to a 10-6
victory over the Fresh Legion Crew. His
efforts helped the Wonders clinch second
place. Next Monday the Wonders will try
to hand Bunt's Ball Busters its first defeat
of the season to partially erase the sting
of sitting 64 games behind the league
leaders.
With the late entry of Tom Hensel
and Kip Buntrock, the league's year-end
Singles Tournament now has 20 play-
ers who have paid their $20 entry fee.
The tournament is set for Monday night,
March 8, 6 p.m., at American Legion
Post 123. The game is 8-Ball, single
game, double elimination. Spectators are
welcome.

18B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 26, 2010

Stell Wins Beachview Men's
Golf Championship In Overtime
by John Boynton
Bill Stell stood on the 18th fairway shaking an electronic distance finder and
muttering to himself. He was in a dog-eat-dog sudden death playoff with Bill
Fellows for the 2010 Beachview Club Championship and nothing was coming
up on the display screen. He knew he would need to get his approach shot close to
a difficult back left pin, but Stell had no choice but to toss the technology into his cart
and go with his gut. He pulled out a 7 iron, played the ball back in his stance, and
punched a low shot under the wind that rolled up six feet short of the pin. A lag and
tap-in later, he was the 2010 champion, a coveted title which has been repeatedly
denied him over the years by former Beachview champions Fellows, Rich Rompala,
Bobby Hodoski, Orion Nunn, Don Hummel, and Jerry Kohmescher. Rompala finished
3rd in the Championship Flight and Tony Baldino finished 4th after improving his
flukey first round score by an amazing 19 strokes.
Fred Zimmer stood up to the pressure and made precious few mistakes in two solid
rounds of golf to walk away with A Flight honors. Jim Mulka raced from back in the
pack to finish 2nd with an impressive 84, and this writer held on to finish in 3rd place.
Tom Ware's even temperament and precise short game were keys to his dominating
win in the B Flight. Jay Allen finished 2nd and Guy Tober came in 3rd. Jack Tukey
won the Gold Flight with a net score of 13 under par, despite skulling three consecu-
tive wedge shots into the pond for an 11 on the 7th hole. How did he ever find the
courage to launch that 4th wedge shot? Jerry Mader finished 2nd, 7 strokes behind
and Ed Grosse was in the money again at 3rd.
P.S. The great Jack Nicklaus believed in the power of positive thinking. Any bad
shots, disappointing rounds, or other failures were immediately purged from his mem-
ory bank. In comparison, the Beachview golfers who finished out of the money this
year were asked to justify their performances and here is a sampling of their rational-
izations: "I wanted to let someone else win for a change;" "their handicaps were way
too high (Gold Flight);" "I lack talent;" "it's a different game when the pressure is on;"
"how am I supposed to win without my three-foot 'gimmes?"'; and "Those guys are
good!"4

Spring Training Likely To Determine
Future Roles For Boston Veterans
Wakefield And Varitek
by Ed Frank
S7 P|he Boston Red Sox begin their 18th spring training
I schedule next week at the City of Palms Park in down-
j town Fort Myers with arguably the best pitching in base-
Sball six proven veterans fighting for five starting spots.
The pitching is so good in fact that the early line on the Red
Sox calls for a 100-win season.
The six include Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, John Lackey,
S Daisuke Matsuzaka, Clay Buchholz and the venerable 43-year-old
/ knuckleballer Tim Wakefield.
Back for his 16th season with the Red Sox, Wakefield is a
story all its own. Just four months removed from back surgery,
he bluntly said last week that he intends to be in the starting rotation.
"My job here as a starter is to last the whole season and make 30 starts. My goal
every year is to give them 200 innings and make all my starts," he told Major League
Baseball.com.
With 189 Major League victories, 175 with the Red Sox, it's hard to argue his
point. He has made 30 starts or more in five of the last seven seasons, last year being
the sole exception. He started the 2009 season in All-Star fashion, reeling off 11 wins.
But he suffered a back injury after the All-Star game and made just four starts the
remainder of the year.
Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein made several key changes during the off-
season to strengthen last season's squad that recorded an impressive 95-67 record.
He acquired pitching ace Lackey, along with shortstop Marco Scutaro, third-base-
man Adrian Beltre, center-fielder Mike Cameron, outfielder Jeremy Hermida and Bill
Hall who can play third base as well as the outfield.
Gone are outfielder Jason Bay, reliever Billy Wagner and first-baseman Casey
Kotchman.
In addition to Wakefield, spring training undoubtedly will shed light on the future
role of another Red Sox veteran, catcher Jason Veritek, the team captain.
For the first time in his 12 years with Boston, Varitek enters spring training as the
backup catcher.
He has been replaced by Victor Martinez, who has greater power. Varitek likely will
be a part-time catcher who will fill in for Martinez on occasion.
All that Red Sox manager Terry Francona would say regarding his captain is that "if
his playing time changes, he will remain a very strong influence on our team."
Prior to last season, Varitek owned a .263 batting average, but fell to .209 last year
with only 14 homes runs, his least productive season as a pro.
For the Red Sox Nation, the names of Wakefield and Varitek have long been syn-
onymous with winning baseball. Just what their roles will be in the future will likely be
decided here in the next month.
Everblades Host First Place South Carolina this Weekend
If the Florida Everblades are going to make a late-season move on first-place South
Carolina, the opportunity is here this weekend.
The Stingrays hold a 12-point lead over the local hockey team with 16 games
remaining in the regular season and seven of those games are between the two ECHL
South Division rivals.
The Everblades enter this weekend's two-game series at Germain Arena with a
28-19-9 season record. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and at 5 p.m. Sunday
in a special matinee.
Florida and South Carolina face each other for five straight games next month,
three at South Carolina March 12 to 14 and two back here March 19 and 20.

Former Super Bowl Coach To Speak
At Lifeline Family Center Dinner
T he Southwest Florida Christian
Couples Club has announced its
annual dinner on March 13 at
Pelican Preserve beginning at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $35 and may be purchased
by phone at 242-7238 or email helpline-
4teens@mindspring.com. B
The event honors The Lifeline Family
Center which since 1996 has been provid-
ing young women in crisis pregnancy a safe
home and learning environment along with
educational training, job training, profes-
sional counseling, parenting classes, and
spiritual direction during this important time
in their lives.
Lifeline will be the recipient of donations
taken at the event.
The motivational keynote speaker will
be renowned Head Coach Bobby Ross
discussing life's many victories. After gradu-
ating from Benedictine High School, Ross
attended the Virginia Military Institute,
where he started at quarterback and defen- Bobby Ross
sive back for two seasons and served as
captain of the football team as a senior.
Following a tour of duty in the U.S. Army as a first lieutenant, Ross coached
high school football at Colonial Heights High School, and at his own alma mater of
Benedictine. He then moved on to coaching at the college level, starting with assistant
coaching stints at William & Mary, Rice, and Maryland before accepting his first head
coaching position at The Citadel. After five seasons his coaching record was 24 wins,
31 losses, and 0 ties, ranking him seventh at The Citadel in total wins and 16th in
winning percentage.
Ross then spent four years as an assistant coach with the Kansas City Chiefs
before returning to the collegiate arena as head coach at Maryland. He won three
Atlantic Coast Conference Championships while at Maryland. After four years, he left


Maryland to coach Georgia Tech where as head coach he led the Jackets to an 11-0-
1 record and the ACC championship -- the school's first conference title since 1952.
The school also won the national championship by finishing first in the final Coaches'
Poll. Ross has won the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award and the Bobby Dodd Coach of the
Year Award.
He went on to become the head coach of the San Diego Chargers, winning an
AFC Championship and San Diego's first trip to the Super Bowl. In his five seasons
with the Chargers, they won two division titles and made the playoffs three times.
In 1996 Ross left the Chargers to become the head coach of the Detroit Lions, a
position he held until the middle of the 2000 season when he resigned due to a medi-
cal condition

Tennis Basics
Four Main Areas
Il by Louis Voslo


To Focus On
0


r he four main areas to focus on in the tennis game are
Mental, strategic, physical and technical.
T Some examples of mental toughness are the ability
to stay cool under pressure during difficult points, overcoming
nerves in tight situations, playing in front of a crowd, and han-
dling unwanted distractions.
Strategic development is knowing what shots to play in certain
situations. Where do you position yourself in the court between
shots? How do you disguise your own weaknesses? How do you
exploit your opponent's weaknesses? These are all strategic vari-
ables to consider.
Physical skills include your stamina, reflexes, speed, agility and hand-eye coordina-
tion.
Last but not least is the technical aspect to your game. This is your stroke mechanic
and footwork. Are you smooth when you move or are you all over the place? Does
your swing have a hitch?
With these four components you will become a complete player. If you are lacking
one of the four, then you might want to schedule a lesson with your local pro to work
on your weakness or work on disguising it.
Louis Vosloo is director of tennis at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club and
Sundial Beach and Golf Resort.0

Will Power

It Depends!
by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA


potential cli-
ent called to
ask a ques-
tion that he claimed
was "simple". After
a 10-minute dis-
sertation outlining
a very complicated
fact pattern all I
could say was, "It
depends."
He wasn't very
thrilled with my answer, and I can under-
stand why. It would seem that lawyers
sell more "Depends" than Walgreens and
CVS combined!
And that leads me to today's column
topic, which is why so much of what you
put into an estate plan depends upon
your particular facts and how every-
one's different fact pattern when applied
against the same law results in different
outcomes.
What do I mean by this? Take, for
example, two couples, both of whom
have a net worth of $4 million. Both of
those couples are Florida residents, in
their first marriage and have two children
with four grandchildren. Let's even throw
in that both couples share the same rec-
reational interests and socialize on the
weekends.
The first couple's assets consist of a
Florida home, a northern lake front cot-


tage residence and some stocks, bonds
and mutual funds. The second couple's
assets are composed largely from a family
business and 401(k) plan.
Even though the couples share the
same marital history, the same number
of children and grandchildren, and may
even socialize together on the weekends,
the first couple's estate plan should look
very different than the second couple's
estate plan. This is due to a variety of
factors. Even though they have the same
net worth and the federal income, estate
and gift tax laws are not different for both
couples, the effect that those same laws
have on the different types of assets that
the couples own usually will result in a dif-
ferent estate plan.
State laws that apply have different
results as well. Some states have estate
and inheritance taxes while Florida does
not. When one owns real estate in a state
that has such taxes, then one's estate
plan may be drafted with the anticipation
of minimizing or deferring those state
taxes.
And it's not just about taxes. The cou-
ple that owns the family business might
be restrained from certain types of plan-
ning avenues due to internal corporate
agreements, leases, vendor agreements,
employment agreements and the like. All
of these should be considered when fash-
ioning a proper estate plan.

So when the couples go out to din-
ner together and compare notes on what
their estate planning attorneys are recom-
mending, they are likely to discover that
one says something very different than
the other. This doesn't mean that one is
wrong and the other right. The attorneys
are probably giving good advice, based
upon the factual circumstances (and dif-
ferences) between the couples.
It's not very often that you find two
couples with so much in common. Throw
into the mix different degrees of net
worth, different medical histories and
problems, second marriage situations,
children from different marriages, chil-
dren with varying degrees of need and
ability, different estate planning objec-
tives, charitable intent (or lack thereof),
and the list goes on it's pretty easy to
see why two couples who share the same
amount of wealth may have vastly differ-
ent estate plans.
How do you begin to understand what
you might need? In my office we use a
Client Organizer. You can find it on our
Web site www.sbshlaw.com click on
Estate Planning in the left menu bar then
scroll down to where the client organizers
are mentioned. You'll find that we ask a
lot of detailed questions. These questions
lead us to understand what issues your
plan might address.


South Florida

Decorating Style
by Jeanie Tinch
T he South
Florida deco-
rating style
incorporates some
of the richest and
most beautiful ele-
ments available
in home d&cor.
Although the cur-
rent design trend
can be described as a "return to nature,"
South Floridians have been incorporat-
ing the lushness of our environment into
their home d&cor even before this trend
gained so much popularity.
It may be because many of our resi-
dents have established new or second
residences in South Florida after many
years of living "north" and enduring
many long and cold winters. These hom-
eowners now embrace the warmth of the
South Florida climate and try to bring bits
of it home. Another reason can be found
in the rich cultural influences present in
our lives in South Florida. South Florida
has also welcomed people of many ori-
gins, most notably from the Carribean
as well as from many other countries in
Latin America. Their influence can be
seen in the "spicy" mixture of colors that
permeate our lives and find expression
in our decor in anything from subtle
accent pieces to more emphatic displays
of colors and textures in our walls and
our furnishings.
However, probably the most impor-
tant influence in South Florida decor is
our natural environment itself. In South
Florida nature will not be ignored. The


We ask all of our new clients to com-
plete an organizer. Sometimes we meet
resistance as the new client doesn't
understand why we're asking them to
complete the detailed list. But as you can
see from the few previous paragraphs, if
we don't know what the particular issues
are for any given client, we can't give
proper advice.
Do you know what's it like when you
visit your estate planning attorney but
refuse to tell him anything about you?
It's like going to the doctor and saying,
"Doctor it hurts!"
The doctor asks, "Where does it
hurt?"
And then you reply, "Guess!"
Your factual situation and your goals is
what should drive your estate plan. If you
haven't spent enough time talking about
your unique set of circumstances with
your estate planning counsel, then you
may not have a plan that is right for your
situation.
Next time you're out to dinner with
friends and they try to tell you that what
they've done is what you should do with
your planning pause and reflect on how
different we all are and how those dif-
ferences add up when putting together
something as unique as a personal estate
plan.

sub-tropic heat and relentless sun have
influenced our architectural styles and
choices. High ceilings in our homes come
with impressive, tall, majestic windows.
Window treatments, therefore, are a key
focal point of our decor. We do not want
to cover our windows and close them to
the outside. We, however, need to protect
our furnishings from the strong ultra-vio-
let light while at the same time, we want
to preserve our views and dress our win-
dows beautifully. Fabrics that are rich in
texture, and for those bolder homeown-
ers, are also rich in color, are the favorite
choice of South Floridians.
Even nature's neutrals have an impor-
tant influence in our homes: creamy-
whites and tans of our sands, the cap-
tivating terra cotta of our corals, and of
course, who in South Florida can ignore
our amazing azure blue sky color and the
blue-greens of our oceans? Green, the
color that will dominate interior decorat-
ing this decade, is a strong influence in
our South Florida decor. We not only
bring the color into our homes, from the
green majestic palm trees to the many
varying hues of green of our rich plant
life, we bring in the plants themselves.
Whether it is live or a "permanent
botanical," every South Florida home is
accessorized with beautiful greenery from
potted plants to grand, tall trees. Natural
raffia, hemp, and abaca fibers also adorn
a lot of the furnishings and accessories in
our homes.
Whether your style is traditional, con-
temporary, or eclectic, if you live in South
Florida your decorating choices and style
are most likely influenced in one way or
another by our environment: rich cultural
influences and Mother Nature.

Nominations

Sought For New

Chrysalis Awards
T he Lee County Visitor &
Convention Bureau (VCB) and the
Greater Fort Myers Chamber of
Commerce Inc. are seeking nominations
for the first annual Chrysalis Awards to
honor businesses and individuals who
have positively impacted the local com-
munity.
Award nominations are due on March
12, and are open to any member of the
local business community, regardless of
whether or not they are directly a part
of the tourism industry. Award recipients
will be announced at a jointly hosted
Celebration of Business & Tourism
Awards Luncheon and Trade Show on
May 20 from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at
the Harborside Event Center in down-
town Fort Myers.
The event, co-produced by the VCB
and the Greater Fort Myers Chamber and
held to commemorate National Travel
and Tourism Week, celebrates the value
of tourism and the community teamwork
involved in maintaining and enhancing
tourism as a major economic engine for
the county. The event also is part of the
VCB's year-round Team Tourism infor-
mational program to strengthen destina-
tion teamwork.
The awards will honor recipients in
the categories: Business Development,
Eco-Innovation, Cultural Achievement,
Education, Sports and Sales and


3,'
^~ ^


Marketing. A seventh award category is
the VCB's long-standing Junonia Award,
created to recognize those individuals
who have positively impacted the local
tourism community by demonstrating
unique capabilities, leadership, commit-
ment, and dedication.
A panel of local business community
leaders will judge nominations and select
one award recipient in each of the six
categories; and, as in past years, the
Junonia will only be awarded at the sole
discretion of the VCB. Business and
individual nominees for the six Chrysalis
Awards will be judged on their innovation
in their respective category, how they
have distinguished themselves in the com-
munity, the results of their efforts to pro-
mote the destination, their contributions
to business and tourism partnerships for
the overall benefit of the county, and their
work to foster growth and sustainability.
"Destination visitors often spark future
leisure visits, conventions, relocations
and other business opportunities. The
Chrysalis Awards signify an ongoing part-
nership between the business and tourism
communities to ensure that continues
to happen," said Tamara Pigott, interim
VCB deputy director.
Pigott said the awards committee
chose the name Chrysalis for the new
program because it signifies the final
stage before a butterfly emerges from
its cocoon, the metamorphosis in which
its growth and differentiation occur.
Committee members see it as an appro-
priate symbol of the desire to build and
foster a stronger strategic partnership
between tourism and the larger business
community.


She added that the junonia is a highly
treasured shell, so it was selected as a
symbol of the VCB's ongoing annual
award due to its rarity. Past recipients
have included: Sally Tapager, owner
of Tropic Star; DT Minich, CDME,
former executive director of the VCB;
Chris Pendleton, president and chief
executive officer of the Edison & Ford
Winter Estates; Roxie Smith of Pink
Shell Development and a member
of the Tourist Development Council;
Steve Tutko, biologist and consultant to
Babcock Ranch; Fran Myers, owner of
Red Coconut RV Resort and a member
of the Tourist Development Council;
Elaine McLaughlin, former executive
director of the VCB; Brian Holly, general
manager of the Holiday Inn Gulf Coast
Town Center; Tom Cronin, owner of
the Shell Factory; Steve Greenstein, for-
mer executive director of the Sanibel &
Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce;
and Jay Kinzer-Halcrow, former sales and
marketing director of the West Wind Inn.
While the VCB has always pooled its
resources with those of local chambers
for the common good of the destination,
this is the first such alliance between the
VCB and a local chamber. In addition, all
local chambers are involved with the new
program.
"We're celebrating our work together
to create stronger relationships that
encourage new visitors and ultimately
new businesses for our area," said
Marietta B. Mudgett, executive director
of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of
Commerce, whose organization initiated
the joint program. "Tourism and business
partnerships improve community growth,

Myra Daniels
Receives LIFE
Award
Myra Janco Daniels, founder,
chairman and CEO of the
Philharmonic Center for the
Arts in Naples, has been awarded the
2010 Holland T. Salley Leadership in
Fostering Education (LIFE) Award.
The award was presented at a lun-
cheon held by the Edison State College
Foundation at the Naples Grande Beach
Resort. It recognizes individuals who have
made outstanding contributions toward
advancing educational opportunities in
the community. Close to 200 community
members attended the event.
"Mrs. Daniels has provided outstand-
ing educational opportunities to so many
at Edison State College and in our com-
munity," said Collier Campus President
Dr. Jeffrey Allbritten.
"Mrs. Daniels has been instrumental
in developing major musical programs in
Collier County such as the Philharmonic
Youth Chorale, Philharmonic Youth
Orchestra, Philharmonic Youth
Symphonia, Family Fun and Learning,
Kindermusik Adventures Camp for new-
borns through age six and Master Classes
for adults.
During her acceptance speech, Mrs.
Daniels commented on the evolution of
Edison State College as an institution.
"When I came to this community, Edison
was a store front. This school has grown
so much. When you have 20,000 stu-
dents who can get affordable educations,


HAVE YOUR
POLICIES BEEN
UPDATED AND
REVIEWED...
LL FOR
AUTO QUOTE


there is no reason for anyone not to be
educated in this community."
Education has been a priority in
Daniels' personal and professional life.
She was the first woman to be named
professor of marketing at the School of
Business at Indiana University. She held
a six-year associate professorship in mar-
keting, taught in the University's MBA
program and directed an internship pro-
gram in publishing sponsored by the Ford
Foundation. Daniels was also instrumental
in inaugurating the marketing and adver-
tising programs now offered at Indiana
State University.
Past recipients of this recognition are
Holland Salley (2003), Edward A. Morton
(2004), Fred Pezeshkan (2005), Judy

Wellness Center of Cape Coral since it opened. So when Lee Memorial Health
System announced its Healthy Brain Initiative memory classes, it was only natural
for her to join up and exercise her mind, too.
"I had kind of slipped into some bad memory habits," Jimmerson said. "Everyone
develops some lazy memory habits over time, but the classes taught me some tools
and tips to help me remember things better."
The Healthy Brain Initiative was started by Lee Memorial Health System's Lee
Memory Care division to provide ways for residents of Southwest Florida to boost
brain power and fight the onset of memory disorders. It's based on a program by
the UCLA Center for Aging. Participants follow activities in The Memory Bible: An
Innovative Strategy for Keeping Your Brain Young, a book by Gary Small, PhD,
director of the UCLA Center.
Jimmerson feels people of all ages can benefit from the memory classes and
computer-based modules. The class series begins by exploring individuals' learning
styles and as it progresses, participants are asked to share the techniques they used
to remember information. Jimmerson says every person in her class had different
methods for remembering, which she found interesting. She learned that simply being
aware and paying more attention to people and things could help power her memory.
The computer-based modules are also self-paced and adjust to participants' strengths
and pace, so there's no competition or comparing with others in the class.
"One of the other most helpful tips I learned was to associate numbers and letters
when I'm trying to remember things like names or phone and license plate numbers,"
Jimmerson said. "For example, if the first three digits of someone's number are 224,
I think, 'two plus two equals four.' Some numbers also look like letters, and vice versa,
so you can make a game out of remembering."
While the system's program is the only one of its kind in Southwest Florida, mem-
ory classes and spas are catching on across the country. Programs in seven states use
The Memory Bible including California, Texas, Illinois and Florida.
Memory classes are starting up on various days all around Lee County. A six-week
session of two-hour classes once per week costs $90. For the current class schedule,
visit www.healthybrainfl.org or call the SHARE Club at 239-772-6765.0

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
So by Constance
Clancy
Q: I am in the
process of quitting
smoking and I am
feeling quite anx-
Sious. Are there any
suggestions you can
offer to help getting
through this over-
whelming feeling?
A: Congratulations on your efforts
to become a non-smoker! This is a very
difficult addiction to break and the fact
that you are breaking free of this addic-
tion is something to be so proud of. Your
anxiety is typical and breaking free of this
addiction is stressful. Stress releases the
brain chemical epinephrine, and this is
responsible for your ability to think and
focus clearly. I do have some suggestions
on reducing your anxiety while you com-
plete this process:
1. Be gentle on yourself. Kicking the
habit is tough enough so just be prepared
that you will experience some stress. Just
keep in mind that becoming a non-smok-
er is the important goal.


2. Clear away as many stressful events
in your life as possible. You have heard
the term, "clear the clutter," and when
you can clear up the clutter in your life,
you will experience less stress in it.
3. Be aware of the signs of stress that
creep up. That feeling of being over-
whelmed and not knowing coping skills
can multiply into sleeplessness, agitation,
anger and even feelings of hopelessness.


ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 26, 2010 29B
4. Take time out to be calm and quiet.
Don't burden yourself by unnecessary
worry. Learn to relax and stay focused on
this moment.
Dr Clancy is a licensed mental
health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public
speaker You may email Dr Connie at
connie@drconstance.com or call
239-472-3797.0

Pet Supplies Needed
supplies of dry cat
and dog food are
critically low again
for Lee County Domestic
Animal Services' (LCDAS)
Community Pet Pantry.
The agency needs dona-
tions to continue assisting
pet owners facing tough
economic times.
Through the
Community Pet Pantry,
LCDAS distributes pet food
and supplies to owners that
would need to surrender
their pets to shelters due
to their inability to provide
food and care. LCDAS is
currently providing food for
more than 800 pets direct-
ly and also helping several
low-income neighborhoods
supply pet food for their
residents' pets. Rex ID#A463150 is a two-year-old Basset mix looking for a
family to love


ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 26, 2010 31B
Anyone who can assist may bring donations to the shelter at 5600 Banner Drive,
Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff's Office off Six Mile Cypress Parkway.
Donations may be left at the door any time the shelter is not open.
Pet owners receiving public assistance may contact LCDAS at 533-7387 (LEE-
PETS) to be placed on an approved list to receive pet food. A Spay/Neuter And
Vaccine Program is also available for those on public assistance.
For more information visit www.LeeLostPets.com.0




Pet Microchip Clinic New Hours
L ee County Domestic Animal Services (LCDAS) has announced new hours for
its weekly Pet Microchip ID Clinics for Lee County residents. Staff Veterinarian
Peter Davis will be available from 10 a.m. to noon every Friday. Microchip
IDs will be offered for $15, or $5 with proof of public assistance.
This service is being provided by LCDAS to give Lee County pet owners the option
of having their pets microchipped in order to qualify for reduced pet license fees. Prior
to January 1, 2010 pets were only required to be sterilized for the reduced fee. A list
of private veterinarians and low-cost clinics is available online at www.LeeLostPets.com
for anyone who wants their pets sterilized and microchipped.
For more information about pet licensing, microchip clinics, or pet sterilization call

38B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 26, 2010


Hi, my name is Farrah. I
am a one-year-old white
female hound mix. You may
remember me, I was the skinny little
puppy that was nearly dead when
I arrived at Animal Services this
past July. You know the real heart-
wrenching story of animal abuse and
neglect. I've gotten healthy. Now
I'm all grown up. Can you believe
how feminine and graceful I am? I
found a good home with someone
who loved me but unfortunately is
no longer able to care for me. I've
graduated from obedience school
so I already know all the good stuff
everyone wishes their dog knew.
I don't like to brag but the shelter
staff thinks I have that desirable
combination of beauty and brains. I
guess you could say I'm a "catch!"
Come meet me and we'll find out if
we can play together. My adoption
fee is $50, that's with the $25 off
the regular adoption fee of $75 due
to February's Sweet Deals adoption
special.
Hey, my name is Bud. I'm a two-
year-old male classic orange tabby.
Valentine's Day may be over but
February is still a good time to find
true love. I'm a real charmer and
before you know it I will steal your
heart. I'm loving, playful and definitely
know how to snuggle a soft shoulder.
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,
please refer to the animal's ID num-
ber. 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 adop-
tions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Monday through Saturday, located at
5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next
to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, off
Six Mile Cypress Parkway.
All adoptions include spay/neuter
surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations,
rabies vaccination and county license
if three months or older, flea treat-
ment, worming, heartworm test for
dogs six months and over, feline AIDS
and leukemia test for cats, training
DVD, 10-day health guarantee, and a
bag of Science Diet pet food.
The adoption package is valued at
$500.
