by Ray Buck


"Of course, I said yes, and here I am," Newton said. Fittingly for this profile, the
quilus howt hher n umet iin nrc i full han ingalso works with the Bailey Packing
House crew one day a week, currently inventorying every building for the city to
update its records. She and docent Christel Heidecker with the help of the crew deco-
rate Morning Glories each year for the toy show.
Her other favorite village spot is the Rutland House kitchen where she can play
games with the children. "Where is mom's vacuum cleaner? Where's her crockpot?
How does she make toast?"
Paula is a Hoosier born and raised. She met her husband John at Butler University
in Indianapolis. She has two children, four grandchildren and came down to the island
for visits in the 80s and 90s, then 10 years ago they became Florida residents. She
loves her painting classes at BIG ARTS, the Sanibel Library, the view of the beach
from her lanai... Paula Newton obviously loves Sanibel.4

"I like to tell our visitors Baily Store
about the early days on the
island, the hurricanes, the whole Bailey family, the packing house, the farmer hitch-
ing his mule to the wagon for the trek to the store and the journey his tomatoes must
make to New York City hotels," she says.
The aisles between the old display counters at the Bailey Store are ideal for a
docent wanting to tell that much of the island's history, because the history is all there.

Frank Bailey's handsome roll-top desk.
The "island drug store" in one small display case. It's all there. Plus a gift shop.
Her involvement with the museum began in hanging quilts for the annual show.
She was helping docent and fellow Hoosier Kay Wightman who said to her, "You've
done the work, would you like to become a docent?"

But the event could not take place
without the generosity of our entire local
artist community. We want to thank all
the artists for giving us something special:
a piece of themselves. They gave CROW
personal expressions of their creativity,
their passion, their spirit, their imagina-
tion and expressions of their hope for the
eternity of art, beauty and nature.
For more than 40 years, CROW s
supports have also demonstrated pas-
sion, spirit, imagination and their hope
for the eternity of our remarkable wildlife.
Thank you to all the contributing artists
for helping us further our mission of say-
ing wildlife through compassion, care and
education.
We also want to thank the entire team
at Traders Cafe for the sumptuous buffet,
the fabulous wines and their usual impec-
cable service.
Special thanks to our auctioneer Jean
Baer and congratulations to Philip and
Roberta Puschel on their winning bid for
our live auction featured piece, an origi-
nal Darryl Pottorf entitled Unintended
Consequences.
And the final thank you comes from
our patients. Over the next year, we
anticipate treating over 4,000 sick,
injured and orphaned wildlife patients at
CROW and they do not have Medicare!
But it is heartwarming to know that so
many others do care!

Outdoor Dining
In Resort Area

Moves Forward
by Anne Mitchell
Sanibel s seven-member plan-
ning commission, sitting as the
SLand Development Code Review
Subcommittee, on Tuesday approved
a draft amendment that will open the
door for more restaurants to have out-
side dining.
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-
e it.
At its meeting two weeks earlier, the
committee made it clear they were not
suggesting carte balance for outdoor seat-
wnterd no offthremngpoetsuniy a sd
for any variances needed. Each would be
decided on a case-by-case basis once an
application was made.
Pushing the move is Robert Parks,
who wants outdoor tables at his Twilight
Cafe on West Gulf Drive.
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 restau-
rants. Planning Director Jim Jordan said
Gramma Dot's and the Mad Hatter might
be able to apply. Jordan listed other res-
taurants outside the commercial district
noting that only those open to the public
would be considered under the current
proposal
Owners of nearby property will have
their chance to speak at a series of public
meetings that will follow. The next step is
for the ordinance to be approved by the
same seven people when they sit as the
planning commission on March 23. Then
it will go to the city council for a final
decision.M

r.Marc Rowe will be teaching tai
16 and 22 from 11 a.m. to 12 '
p.m. at the Sanibel Senior Center
Tai chi is an ancient Chinese form
of "soft-style" martial art exercise based
on slow, fluid movements. Dr. Rowe's
instruction focuses on maintaining one's

ty and muscle tone. Tai chi is an excellent
way to reduce stress and generate mental
calmness and clarity.
Participants are encouraged to wear
loose fitting clothing and comfortable
shoes. Call the Senior Center in advance
at 472-5743 for registration and fee

STANLEY JOHNSON, JR.
Stanley (Stan) Johnson, Jr. was born
and raised in Mt. Vernon, Ohio,
Sthe son of Stanley and Dorothy
Johnson.
As a member of the "greatest genera-
tion," Stan proudly served in the U.S.
Navy during World War II from 1943 to
1946. As a commissioned officer (LTJG),
he commanded an amphibious ship
and crew at the age of 23 in the South
Pacific. These were formative years for
the values of integrity, loyalty, and regard
for others that Stan carried and built
upon throughout his life. Stan attended
Denison University from 1940 to 1943,
later officially graduating as a member of
the class of 1944, following his naval ser-
vice. Stan then attended the University of
Michigan Law School, obtaining his law
degree in 1949.
Stan practiced general law in Mt.
Vernon for two years before join-
ing Cooper Industries (then Cooper-
Bessemer, also in Mt. Vernon) in 1951
as assistant treasurer. Serving in various
management roles, he contributed to the
major growth and expansion of Cooper
during the 1950s and '60s. In addition
to overseeing business diversification
and acquisitions, he eventually became
president of the largest division, Cooper-
Bessemer Corporation. Stan served as a
corporate officer and board member dur-
ing his 20-year tenure with the company,
and perhaps his most enduring legacy at
Cooper was his commitment to employ-
ees. He emphasized that corporate-level
decisions "weren't paper decisions, they
were human decisions.
After leaving Cooper Industries in
1971, Stan moved to Florida to become
owner and president of Priscilla Murphy
Realty on Sanibel Island, from 1971 to
1986. Stan was a founder and investor
in the Community Bank of the Islands,
started in 1988.
Stan was a member of the Unitarian
Universalist Church of Fort Myers and
the Fort Myers Congregational United

Cha is sCre .by his beloved wife
Gaye Johnson, six children (and their
spouses), and 10 grandchildren: Mark
Johnson (wife Nina Mende); Scott

12 ISLAND SUN MARCH 12, 2010


Ted Cross was a man of herculean
talents and human passion, quietly gener-
ous, and profoundly special in his love for
his family, his friends, his birds and his
special islands of Nantucket and Sanibel.
Born in 1924 he grew up in
Wellesley, MA, attended Amherst College
and joined the navy serving as an officer
in the Pacific Theater for two years. After
the war, Ted returned to Amherst and
receiving his bachelor's degree in 1947.
He went on to receive his law degree
from Harvard University in 1950.
After a successful career as general
counsel for Sheraton Hotels, he went
to work in Washington in the Office of
Economic Opportunity. He eventually
became an advisor to the Johnson admin-
istration and later to the Nixon White
House.
With his two brothers he founded the
company, Warren, Gorham and Lamont,
a publishing firm that produced peri-
odicals for the banking and accounting
worlds. He later founded The Journal of
Blacks in Higher Education, that traced
the successes and failures of American
educational institutions in appointing
black faculty and admitting black students.
Ted remarked, "Looking back on my life,
this is probably the most important thing
I have done.
In the early '70s, amid the frenetic
enterprises of his varied careers, Ted
Cross discovered shorebirds, and with the
passion that ruled every one of his proj-
ects and enterprises, he went in search
of perfection in trying to photograph
these waterbirds that he came to admire
so much. He took to a pursuit of pho-


tographing these marvels
of nature with a passion
which took him hundreds
of thousands of miles
around the globe, covering
five continents and half a
lifetime .
But he always returned
to Sanibel and his and
the birds' sanctuary at the
"Ding" Darling National
Wildlife Reserve.
During the '70s he
started coming to Sanibel
with his wife Mary, an
extraordinary photogra-
pher in her own right,
to join his dearest friend,
Roemer McPhee, a class-
mate at Harvard Law. Ted
first bought a property on
the gulf, but the birds drew
him back over to Tarpon
Bay.
His daughter, Amanda
Cross, and her husband,
Torpey, were looking for a
place to raise their young Great blue her
daughter, Lindsay, and
Ted suggested they come and experi-
ence Sanibel. They decided on a beautiful
property down the bay from Ted and
Mary's house. All along this shore Ted
erected osprey poles and platforms and
delighted in the pairs of ospreys that
came and built their wattle nests, breed-
ing and raising their young, screeching
along this gorgeous stretch of water and
shoreline.
Ted Cross would come to Sanibel
each winter to marvel at all he found in
the wildlife along these shores. He and
Roemer would go out on their expedi-
tions, he the teacher, Roemer the enthu-
siastic pupi hn a pen tobirds andr-

the shoreline and the mangrove islands,

His pursuit of perfection in his pho-
to rsooy wt' Linethe ntr ong athe questn
of his birding friends in Texas once
remarked that Ted Cross' tombstone will

birds of the shoreline. Guy, like Roemer,

si natecteachings a b camedasT pert

would travel the entire gulf and east coast
with boat and equipment in tow in pursuit
of Ted's quarry: to marvel at these sin-
gular examples of nature's fortitude and
vicissitudes and vagaries.
The result of this 20-year quixotic
adventure is Ted Cross's remarkable
book, Waterbirds, published last fall. Guy
Horner said, "Ted was driven for the last
two years to get the book done and done
right. "-

In his book, all his birds come alive
with such dazzling performances that
one envies Ted this journey, this seeing,
this patience to pursue the spectacular.
He says in the book, "I revisit these
islands most every day. The memories of
them helps me accept the brevity of the
time that lies ahead. He quotes William
Wordsworth: "Bliss it was in that dawn to
be alive," and in his following of the red
knot on its annual migratory voyage from
Patagonia to the Arctic tundra, Ted s
voyage of discovery was to find these
extraordinary miracles in nature and pres-
ent them humbly to us.

F. LOWELL DEVASURE

at t~he age of 87 on February 21,
He was born in Neodesha, Kansas
on November 19 1922. During the
Great Depression the family relocated to
eastern Nebraska where Lowell grew up
on a farm. He earned his BA degree at
Dana College in Blair, Nebraska and at
Doane College in Crete, Nebraska under
the U.S. Navy V12 program and was
commissioned an ensign at Columbia
University, New York. He attained the
rank of LT jg while serving as navigator
and weather officer on a PCE based in
Guam in WWII.
He returned to farming and in
1948 married Dorothy Granlund in
Minneapolis.
He enjoyed farming, always willing
to try new methods and products and
keenly aware of the role weather played.
The children became involved as they
grew and at times the entire family would
attack weeds in corn and soybean fields.
The reward for their work would be
camping trips to National Parks in the
Western U.S. and Canada.
On winter vacation Lowell and Dotty
discovered Sanibel Island and fell in love
with seashells. Eventually this led to shell-
ing trips on many continents and islands,
combined with sightseeing jaunts to many
of the world's wonders.
Lowell is survived by Dotty, his wife
of 61 years, three children, Ann Buland
(Pastor Rod), John, and Jane (Keith
Siebrandt); three grandchildren, Steven
Siebrandt (Tina), Shannon Schlabs
(Ronnie) and Sarah Siebrandt; sister
Glennis Nicolai (Art), sister-in-law Grace
Granlund Anderson (Carlton) and many
nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held March
19 at the Sanibel Community Church
at 11 a.m. Memorials may be made to
the Sanibel Community Church, Bailey-
Matthews Shell Museum, Hope Hospice
and the Dubin Alzheimer's Resource

Bill Hammond, deputy county manager

ity will be paid for by Lee County and
the Red Sox will sign a 50-year lease.
Although Hammond did not speak about
the cost, timing, or financial return of this
endeavor, there seems to be a confidence
in the economic benefit to our area. Time
will tell. Lee County is currently looking
to lure another team to City of Palms. He
didn't mention the cost of this.
Hammond spoke fondly of the
Minnesota Twins organization and the
family feeling around the team. He
said although it has a smaller economic
market as compared to the Red Sox,
Minnesota had a very loyal base and a
facility that benefits the community year-
round. The sports complex is the home
to two of Minnesota's minor league
affiliates, housing both the Miracle of the
Class A Florida State League and the
Rookie-level Gulf Coast League Twins.
The complex also features two soc-
cer fields, a softball complex and other
athletic facilities for use by Lee County
organizations, plus an eight-acre water-
management lake for public fishing.
Hammond mentioned a few other
economics sport related happenings:
*The Roy Hobbs Adult Baseball
World Series will bring 181 teams to Fort
Myers in November 2011 and thereafter
with a contract to run to 2019.
*Art of the Olympians Museum in
recently opened with visits from dignitar-
ies across the globe. This is our county's
newest sports tourist attraction.
*Lee County is also mentioned as a
candidate for a pretty impressive aquatic
complex
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club
meets at 7 a.m. every Friday morning at

Rotary

Happenings
submitted by Shirley Jewell
With the generous support of indi-
vidual Rotarians, some of the
proceeds from this year's suc-
cessful arts and crafts fair, and support
from members of the community; the
Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club has supplied
funding to Rotary International's Shelter
Box program (now focusing on Haiti and
more recently Chile). Our club has also
been able to collaborate with Missionary
Enterprises, Inc., led by Rotary Club
member Harold Hanson to send a pallet
of food and building materials to repair
earthquake damage (earmarked to be
used for rebuilding schools). Missionary
Enterprises is sending a 20-foot container
to Haiti that holds 36,000 pounds or 18
tons of needed supplies. When the con-
tainer arrives in Haiti and passes through
security checks, John Grey, our newest
Rotary Club member, is flying to Haiti to
oversee distribution of our Rotary pallet.
From reports we have received from our
Haiti connections, there are many obsta-
cles that our shipment may incur along
the way and we will have to wait for word
of the arrival of the container and evalu-
ate safety conditions in Haiti before John
will leave.
Just a few words about John Grey -
the name may be slightly familiar to some
of you, after all, his name appears on
his company truck; John Grey Painting
Ltd. Co. John only became an official
Sanibel-Captiva Rotary member a few
weeks ago but even while he was under
consideration for membership he showed
the true spirit of a Rotarian and Rotary
International's motto, Service Above Self.
He jumped right into the fray of working
alongside of us at the arts and crafts fair
and volunteered to go to Haiti and rep-
resent our Rotary club. That really does
tell you something about the character of
this man.
Fellow Rotarian Lee County
Commissioner Bob Janes arranged to
have Deputy County Manager William
H. "Bill" Hammond speak to us last
Friday. Hammond wanted to get right
in there and talk a little ball. Recognize
the name Bill Hammond Lee County
Sports Complex, Bill Hammond Stadium.
The main stadium was renamed Bill
Hammond Stadium late in the 1994
spring season in honor of the deputy
county manager who was instrumental in
getting the complex built for the Twins
sports complex. The complex is home
of the Minnesota Twins Spring Training
Camp and two of Minnesota's minor
league affiliates. The Twins are spending
their 20th spring training season at the
Lee County Sports Complex.
Hammond's topic for the day revolved
around the economic impact that our
professional baseball team spring training
has on Lee County. The Boston Red Sox
organization brings the larger dollar share
of revenue to Lee County with its sold-
out games and large fan base. The City
of Palms Park, which was built in 1992
in Fort Myers, with a seating capacity of
around 8,000 per game, will be replaced
in 2012 with a new facility. The facil-

why he is so committed to helping the
youth inLee Couny Hs fa hrn ea
County and Parks has been involved
for many years. They currently help
more than 3,000 kids in Lee County.
Gunnin stated that many of these kids
do not want to leave the center and go
home for fear of abuse from a parent or
guardian.
There are seven centers in Lee County
and on any given day more than 600
kids are using the facilities. Parks and
Gunninl said the goal is to teach kids
about character, leadership, arts, sports,
health and "fun with a purpose." Their
greatest feeling of satisfaction has been
watching one of the kids graduate from
college. These ideas match up so well
with the mission statement of Kiwanis
International, and we are proud to sup-
port them
Kiwanis would like to thank evenjone
in the community who helped make our
annual Spaghetti Dinner another great
success this year. Tom Sharbaugh, our
"big toe" this year was very grateful for
everyone s hard work as well as our
approval of him being in charge for the
next 10 years.

Every waking hour our thoughts are
always of you. There's not a day that
goes by without tears, as we reflect on
the memories of a caring and gentle soul
- a soul that no longer shares our mortal

hearts. Memories stir such wonderful
thoughts, yet at the same time, leaves us
hurting and sensing your loss.
Some people say that "things will get
better with time," but thus far, time has
only proven the opposite. Only those
who have lost one so loved know such
grief. We love you and miss you with all
our being.
Bill you will always, always be in our
hearts and we will never let you go. You
may be gone but you will never ever
be forgotten. Your memory will never
fade, as you 11 live in our memories and

you are sadly missed by your loving wife

You are now well on your way to
becoming a good responsible boater. See

Class boat trip
remember that," Now that I know this
item my family and friends will be at less
risk." The material builds confidence and
knowing what one is doing makes boat-
ing more fun. What a feeling of satisfac-
tion when one neatly docks the boat or
handles a rough wake.
The course includes two sessions in
classes of four hours each. This makes for
an interesting experience because the stu-
dents are divided into very small groups,
each with their own certified proctor/
instructor. The more complex material is
explained. Experiences of fellow group
members are exchanged and are usually


very enlightening. It is amazing the great
stories people keep within. One now has
friends in learning. At the end of class
time one should know required and rec-
ommended safety equipment and how to
use it.
They say that a picture is worth a
thousand words. But sometimes see-
ing a live picture is even better. One
can talk about ranges, channel and

location for many birdwatchers. Much
of what we know about the distribution
of birds in the gulf and throughout the
rest of Florida comes from information
contributed by birders participating in a
variety of citizen science projects.
What can citizen science tell us about
the status of Florida's birds, past, present,
and future? And how can birdwatchers
help us learn more?
Bonney, co-founder of the lab's
Citizen Science Program and co-editor of
the Cornell Handbook of Bird Biology,
will explain how ordinary citizens can
become involved in research projects such
as backyard bird counts, NestWatch, and
eBird (http://ebird.org/content/ebird) .
The latter is an online, nationwide bird
checklist where birders can enter their
sightings.
In addition to offering home com-


puter listing opportunities, Cornell places
eBird reporting kiosks in prime birding
locations, including JN "Ding" Darling
National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel. That
education center kiosk became opera-
tional last year.
Admission is free to the event, which
is sponsored by the "Ding" Darling
Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge, as
part of its Thursday Afternoon Lecture
Series. Seating is limited and available on
a first-come basis.
DDWS is a non-profit, friends-of-the-
refuge organization that supports the
"Ding" Darling Education Center, "Ding
Darling Days, and other educational pro-
grams at the refuge.

large concentration of snook I have seen
in months. With the water still cold at 58
degrees the snook were not moving really
fast but it sure is a good sign to see so
many after thousands died less than two
months ago.
Large schools of ladyfish could also be
found in these deep water, sheltered man-
grove creeks. They were packed tight and
made for some non-stop action on both
live shrimp and plastic jigs. This time of
year these ladyfish will stay put in these
same creeks and canals just waiting for
the water to warm up before they move
out. They are a great way to start a char-
ter or a day's fishing, getting evenjone in
on the action often with double and triple
hook-ups. Mixed in were also a few trout
even though the ratio is about 10 ladyfish
to every trout caught.
The sheepshead spawn is really in
full swing with the majority of of the
bigger fish caught being filled with roe.
There are plenty of them out there,
many over the 15-inch mark. Scouting
around before a charter this week I saw
thousands of good size sheepshead in
the clear water from the tower. The most
productive time I have found to catch


these fish is on the higher water
with a slow moving tide. One good
hole will often produce a dozen
or so decent size sheep. Chunks
of shrimp double-hooked on a
jig head with a sharp hook catch
more than live whole shrimp. I
also like to sharpen the hook on
my jig head after a few fish; keep-
ing it razor sharp will hook these
hard-mouthed bait stealers If you're
looking for a fish dinner, sheep-
shead are hard to beat.
As temperatures slowly
warmed, trout could be not only
found in mangrove channels but
also out on the flats. Drop-offs
around Picnic Island were some
of the hottest action around for
big trout. Shrimp and soft plastic
shrimp fished under a popping
cork caught trout almost every
cast. All of these trout were over
the 15-inch minimum along with
four or five a trip over the 20-inch
max. I did best working the sand
holes and drop-offs. With the Molll
water so clear, work your baits
right on the edge of the flat where it falls
off into to five to six feet of water.
Fishing this week with long time cli-
ent Nick Basilio from Pennsylvania, we
had a great day of non-stop action and a
cooler full of fish at the end of the day.
Nick s son and grandchildren were in
town and they just love to fish. Despite a
cold windy afternoon and never ventur-
ing far from the sheltered warm creeks
around St. James city, Molly Basilio,
Nick's granddaughter, caught everything


ell


F fishing this l bte
week sure got
than it has been.
Warmer afternoon
temperatures
really had the fish
more fired up than
they have been in
weeks. No trophies
this week but day in day out consistent
fishing finally.
Sheepshead and trout were the major-
ity of the fish caught on my boat last
week along with a few reds and the first
few snook I have caught since the big fish
kill. I was not targeting snook but they
sure were a welcome surprise.
One mangrove channel I have been
fishing in St. James City had hundreds
of 18- to 24-inch snook in it along with
a few real bruisers too. This is the first


y Basilio with her big sheepshead of the day
that swims along with some of the bigger
sheepshead of the trip. It's great to see
children really enjoy fishing and all the
nature out on the water that we start to
take for granted. .

Florida Keys are from the same or differ-
ent populations than those caught as far
north as Tampa. And if research findings
from tarpon and bonefish are any indica-
tion, it's not to be assumed that permit
are homebodies; tarpon tagging research
has shown migrations as far north as the
Chesapeake Bay in the Mid-Atlantic, and
bonefish tagged in the Florida Keys have
been recaptured 150 miles away in the
Bahamas much farther than ever antici-
pated.
"Anyone who has permit-fished before
can tell you about the art and skill needed
to catch them," said Al Perkinson, vice
president of marketing for Costa. "It s
something we want to make sure future
anglers have a chance to try, which is
why the data from this tagging program
are so important. We want to help form
policy that protects and conserves permit
for our children and grandchildren to
enjoy.
Costa is supporting the program
through a grant to the BTT, and is donat-
ing a portion of proceeds of its new sun-
glass style Bomba to the permit tagging
project.
All recreational and sport anglers may
participate in the permit tagging pro-
gram. The initiative officially kicks off at
the March Merkin Permit Tournament in
the Florida Keys, March 15-18. There,
anglers will be able to pick up tags and
learn more about the BTT's initiatives.
Anglers can also request permit tags
by e-mailing the Bonefish Tarpon Trust
at bonefish@mote.org, or call 283-1622.
Learn more about the program at www.
projectpermit.com.M


Sunglasses maker Costa and the
Bonefish Tarpon Trust (BTT), a non-
profit organization dedicated to scientific
research and policy support to ensure
healthy populations of bonefish, tarpon
and permit for future generations, have
teamed together to launch the first known
extensive permit tagging program in
Florida.
Working with anglers and conservation
partners statewide, the group hopes to
tag and monitor data of more than 6,000
permit over the next five years, with
hopes to expand Caribbean-wide.
"There's never been a stock assess-
ment of permit in Florida," said Aaron
Adams, president of the Bonefish Tarpon
Trust. "The research
results we receive
... from this tagging
project will allow
scientists to uncover
never-seen-before
data, and help us
form policy recom-
mendations with
the Florida Fish &
Wildlife Commission
to ensure we pro-
tect permit and

Plant Smart:

Sea Lavender
by Gerri Reaves
Sea lavender (Argusia gnaphalodes)
is a multi-branched evergreen
Shrub listed as endangered by the
state of Florida.
Other common names include sea
rosemary and bay lavender.
Ecologically, this perennial is valuable
for preventing beach erosion; however,
the rampant development of its native
coastal habitat has placed it in peril,
despite its hardiness.
That hardiness is partly attributable to
dense tiny hairs on the leaves that slow
the loss of moisture and protect the plant
from intense sun.
Resilience and erosion prevention are
not at sear gla d er h 01 of er, e tver.
- and all the more eye-catching because
it is seldom seen in the residential land-
scape.
The silvery leaves look beautiful in a
mass planting, as a tall low-maintenance
ground cover, or as a border.
Fleshy with a velvety texture, the
leaves are shaped like a very narrow
spoon. They can be more than five inch-
es long, clumping near the branch ends.
Five-petaled small white flowers with
rosy throats appear in the center of the
leaf whorls. Flowering occurs throughout
the year in South Florida.


In South Florida, evergreen sea lavender can develop into a
small tree with woody branches


The velvety, silvery leaves and emerging flowers of sea lavender, listed
as endangered by the state of Florida


The plant prefers well-drained sandy
soil and full sun and can grow well in low-
nutrient soil. In fact, too much moisture
can encourage root rot, so avoid placing
it where it will be subjected to regular
irrigation.
Once established in the landscape, sea
lavender is highly drought tolerant and
requires no maintenance.
In South Florida, the species can reach
up to six feet in height, taking the form
of a small tree with woody limbs.


Usually, though, it takes on a lower,
sprawling form, spreading via limbs that
develop roots and mounds when they
touch the ground and accumulate sand.
Therefore, sea lavender is usually wider
than it is tall.
Salt-spray resistance makes it ideal for
coastal landscapes.
Propagate this endangered beauty with
seeds or cuttings.
The seeds are contained in the small
oval fruit that becomes black when


mature. The corky nature of the fruit
ensures seed dispersal by water.

Florida's Native Plants by Rufino Osorio

CROW Case Of The Week:

Red-Shouldered Hawk
by Brian Johnson
Youngster Lindsey Mullin, 13, with the help of Tom Allen,
rescued a red-shouldered hawk from a retention pond in
r ~C the Sanctuary Estates in Cape Coral on January 23, say-
ing the bird from a near certain death.
tg~ The problem with this bird is that his head was upside down.
"Im not sure I can do justice to this case," said Dr. PJ
Deitschel, calling it one of the odder cases she s seen in her
11-plus years as the head veterinarian at CROW. "He was
F.I extremely ataxic and uncoordinated. He had a dramatic head tilt
to the left and staggered off-balance when stressed.
Staff admitted the bird, and he was given subcutaneous fluids,
the Chinese herb Body Sore, homeopathic remedies, and detoxification herbs.
The bird s symptoms were somewhat enigmatic. Did he have head trauma? A toxi-
cosis? An inner ear infection/disorder? Some combination of the above?
"It was a complex presentation," said Dr. PJ. "The next day his ataxia was worse,
and we noticed a head tremor for the first time. He did a flip in the cage when we
opened the door. There was a yellow coloration to his mucous membranes.
CROW staff added Vitmain B-complex to his medicines and started a program of
supportive care. The treatment strategy was to keep the bird warm, fed and in a non-
threatening environment and monitor his condition. "He was hand-fed mice, which he
took quite well, which was a blessing," said Dr. PJ. "He was hyper-reactive, which is
unusual for a red-shouldered hawk and may have been caused by a toxin.
Most toxicosis cases at the clinic involve a pelican or shorebird who arrives in a
state of near paralysis. The hawk was bright, alert and responsive and could stand and
walk around, Dr. PJ said if a toxin was the cause of the hawk s problem, it was a type
not frequently seen at CROW, though many varieties exist.
The bird was able to perch on Day 3 and was eating on his own by Day 4. Dr.
Amber McNamara noted around this time that his ataxia was improving.
But the bird became frantic when touched and so they decided to place him in a
double wide cage and cease all handling. "The animal could 'foot' very well," said Dr.
PJ, meaning that he was aggressive with his talons.
Staff transferred the hawk to the outdoor burrowing owl complex for more privacy
on Day 23, but it turned into a bit of a disaster. "He was flailing all over the cage,
said Dr. PJ.

Captiva registered voters alone can
vote in the upcoming CEPD referendum
to decide the beach outcome. Only regis-
tered voters alone decide whether main-
taining CEPD's beach program is worth
the investment. Only registered Captiva
voters determine whether to continue
beach re-nourishments.
Issues affecting Captiva:
Should SCOTUS decide against exist-
ing state legislation, will beach-front deeds
and titles survive intact?
Who owns the beach? Where will my
property line be?
After the decision, might this case
affect my property value?
Will the CEPD beach nourishments
continue?
Will Captiva's beach again face a criti-
cal state of erosion similar to pre-1988?
Will ancillary government funding for
CEPD become a distant memory?
Come to the CEPD Town Hall meet-
ing, to learn more about erosion, re-
nourishment, Blind Pass and the critical
SCOTUS case which determines the
ownership of Captiva's beach. Join
CEPD's email list at mycepd@gmail.com

Captiva), retract property lines landward.
The DEP fixed seaward property lines
to the ECLs after Captiva's beach was re-
nourished. Under the BSPA, the replaced
sand became public land. Historically, the
public could walk only on the wet sand,
seaward of HWM, but the BSPA allows
the public to walk on dry sand between
the new HWM and the fixed property
lines. Warning of possible chaotic out-
comes from the case, a lawyer represent-
ing New Jersey Land Title Association,
said, "... title insurance companies simply
cannot do business if precedent regarding
real property is ...nothing more than win-
dow dressing."
Why re-nourish Captiva's beach? Our
beaches erode. Beach renourishment is
critical to our beach survival FEMA
claims 25 percent of homes within 500
feet of the coast may fall victim to erosion
before 2060. Since Redfish Pass opened
in the 1920s, erosion has imperiled our
beach. Without the beach and dunes,
Captiva Island itself becomes imperiled.
In the past, Captiva was constantly threat-
ened by erosion. Erosion was so severe
by 1959, Captiva's Erosion Prevention
District (CEPD) was formed to address
the problem. Our first nourishment in
1961 proved inadequate. Over 500
feet of Captiva's width had vanished -
one casualty, the Old Gulf Road ran
seaward of Captiva Drive. In the early
1980s, South Seas Resort privately
renourished the beach adjacent to the
resort, but the remainder of Captiva's
beach increasingly eroded. Erosion prob-
lems confounded Captivans for years, as
CEPD pursued prevention measures. In


the mid-80s Captivans remained divided
over approaches and then Captiva Drive
washed out, crippling Captiva. The state
officially defined the beach as "critically
eroded." Captivans at last reached con-
sensus; only 25 years after having been
formed, CEPD was empowered to nour-
ish the beach island-wide. This precarious
period known as "the sand wars" was
over; beach nourishment prevailed.
In the decades following, has re-nour-
ishment worked? The most recent project
occurred in 2005/06 and replaced 1.3
million yards of sand on Captiva and
northern Sanibel. Exacerbated by unusual
storms and hurricanes, the project cost
$25 million. Your CEPD board funded an
unprecedented $1 million from reserves
- property owner assessments were sub-
stantially reduced to $5.6 million. CEPD
obtained an additional $18+ million from
federal, state and county funding sources.
Without further assessments from Captiva
property owners, your CEPD, Lee
County and Florida DEP funded $3.5
million for the Blind Pass restoration.
Property owners paid only 20 percent of
the aggregate cost of both projects, while
CEPD reserves were reduced approxi-
mately $2.3 million. But Captiva and the
beach were again protected.
CEPD, with the island-wide renourish-
ment in 1988 and two subsequent nour-
ishments at about eight-year intervals,
replaced over three million cubic yards of
eroded sand. Still, beach erosion remains
an ongoing critical problem; albeit con-
trolled, it has not been prevented. Yes,
beach re-nourishment is involved and
costly, but our beach requires such ongo-

Janss (cello) has received acclaim for its
individual sound, inspired artistic deci-
sions and unique cohesiveness. They
were selected in 2006 for the prestigious
CMS Two residency at the Chamber
Music Society of Lincoln Center. In
2007, they joined the faculty of Stony

in a unique relationship with the world-
renowned Emerson String Quartet.
Pianist Wu Han, a festival favorite, will

at the Aspen Festival.
Han said, "This concert will offer two
great discoveries for the Sanibel audience.
The first is the young Escher Quartet,
which I am so honored and excited to
introduce. They remind me of a young
Emerson Quartet, filled with virtuosity
and energy. The second is experiencing
live the great Piano Quintet of Sergei
Taneyev, who was Rachmaninoff's teach-
er. This work is an absolute masterpiece,
filled with Russian spirit, and is one of the
most difficult and virtuoso piano quintets
in the chamber music repertoire (which
is why it is so rarely heard on the con-
cert stage). As you listen to the Taneyev
Quintet, you can imagine the devilish
virtuosic passages in the piano as the
sound of the great gate of Kiev about to
explode. I am excited to return to Sanibel

Island Inn painting

Art League Show
At Island Inn
Once again this year the historic
Island Inn has invited the mem-
Obers of The Sanibel Captiva Art
League to show their artwork for four
weeks March 2 through April 6. Framed
paintings will hang on the walls near the
restaurant entrance and in the lobby.
Matted work can be found in bins.
Inn guests enjoy the Florida subjects,
Sanibel birds, shells, palms, and island
scenes, and find framed and matted
works easy to purchase and transport
home. The art includes watercolor, acryl-
ic, oil, pastel and batik.
The Island Inn has been a popular
location for San-Cap Art League mem-
bers at their Thursday morning paint-outs
due to the spacious beaches, older quaint
buildings, huge trees and lovely plantings,
all of which add to its elegance and old
Sanibel charm. The management felt the
guests enjoyed talking to the painters and
looking at their work as well. This marks
the fourth year for this show.
The artists have been delighted with
the response and grateful for another
opportunity to display their work.,

Guests dressed up in 1950s fashions,
the men wearing leather jackets, black
shoes and white socks, and the women
mostly in pink. A James Dean movie b
played silently on a large screen during ,=
dinner while hits songs from the era put
everyone in a Mickey Mantle/Marilyn 1
Monroe mood.
The raffle, silent auction and dinner
tickets provided windfall revenue.
"The support the theater has received susan Chrenc and Dc
from our island community this year
has been overwhelming," said Board
President Steve Klug. "The people of
Sanibel and Captiva really love the Herb
Strauss Schoolhouse Theater and they
have shown it by attending our produc-
tions in record numbers and providing
financial assistance at levels we've never
seen before. On behalf of the theater
staff and our board, I want to thank the
community for supporting us.

went on to cover the decade with num-

Ian took a hiatus from the visible music
world, studying acting with the legend-
ary Stella Adler. During that period, she
married and divorced, suffered two emer-
gency surgeries, lost all her savings and
home to an unscrupulous business man-
ager, and moved to Nashville, Tennessee
in 1988 "penniless, in debt, and hungry
to write." She returned to the music
business with 1992's Breaking Silence,
which immediately garnered her ninth
Grammy nomination.
She recently released her autobiogra-
phy, Society s Child, with an accompa-
nying double CD, The Autobiography

autobiography will be available for pur-

book, "It's a hugely readable autobiog-
raphy of an artist who has lived through
success and crushing hardship but knows
that 'you can't sing and cry at the same
time.' Sing on!"
Many people have contacted lan to tell
her how they were touched by her autobi-
ography on a very personal level. "People
relate to what happened to me in my life,
and they tell me about their own similar
experiences. It is a cathartic experience,
when you hear someone else's stone you
can verbalize your own story.
Ian and her partner Pat love Sanibel
and Captiva and are looking forward to
returning. "When we were on vacation,
we were there during a time that a comet
was visible," she said. "We went outside
at 2 a.m. to see the comet and enjoy the
many visible stars; it was a lovely time."

from one side to the other. -
He remembers, 35 years ago, keep-
ing his kids from annoying the watchman

the beached riverboat Algiers from the
public. In more recent years he watched
the Burnap Cottage, his favorite at the vil-
lage, go past his Dixie Beach Boulevard
home on a flatbed truck on its way from
its old site on Woodring Point peninsula to
its present location in the village. He has
a wealth of information about old Sanibel.

the Future through Art
produced by Dorothy
Mackevich Marks, and

Weaving the Future I'
through Art is the story
of a courageous and
powerful woman, Janina

in Lithuania, and demonstrated the vital relationship between art and freedom.
Weaving the Future through Art is the story of a survivor, artist, and activist.
Mary Keogh began painting in abstract forms and gradually adopted a style that
incorporates more recognizable forms. Her works reflect her admiration of Richard
Diebenkorn and the Bay Area figurative movements. The Art of Mary Keogh will
explore her belief "that a work of art, especially painting, must seem spontaneous,
even though the artist may have slaved over it for many hours. This means days of
great exasperation, but some of exultation, when a painting looks right."
Filmmakers and film students interested in showing their films on the big screen
in Schein Performance Hall should contact BIG ARTS for further information. Film
submissions in DVD format will be reviewed by the Movie Maker's Showcase Film
Selection Committee who will select the films for next year's screening.
A sound-enhancement system for the hearing impaired is available.

Book Review

Raymond Buc-k s
South Of Providence
by Priscilla Friedersdorf
ome books
say more South of Providen~c
about our
life on these
islands than sight-
seeing guides and
overviews of flora
and fauna. South
of Providence, a
collection of poet-
ry by Raymond
Buck, reminds Mr..mqan..man,
us of why we ..all~
live here: peace
and contentment
found both in our s
daily and remem-
bered lives. RyBc
Buck splits his poetry into seven chapters giving
his readers the pleasure of experiencing the emotions
brought forth by each of his poems representing differing views of life.
He has visions imagined with quiet reflection through his poetry. They are clear;
never contrived or forced. From Providence with Love is romantic and erotic; it con-
tains Night Whispers; "I cling to you in the night, I kiss your shoulder... you move I
move, our darkness dance... ; The Cup of Love begins, "My gentle hand cups your
silk covered breast, my arm rests heavy across your side... ; Nineteen Sixty Nine
remembers early images, "O do you still prance sweet dancer mine with aery but-
terfly wings and and gazelle limbs... does your love still come and go on whims... a
blissful fleeting love so sweet held fast within a heart that knew it could not last;" and
some sad contemplation in Holding Hands on the end of life: "... each day we move
together toward those minutes when life for you or me will slip away forever from your
hand or mine... I too seldom kiss your hands.

Traveling Museum Stops On Sanibel


A replica cargo truck from the recent slavery operation was part of the exhibit

The mobile museum was conceived of by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers
(CIW), the human rights award-winning farmworker organization that has aided in the
prosecution by the Department of Justice of six farm slavery operations and the libera-
tion of well over 1,000 workers. The museum is endorsed by Amnesty International
(USA) and Anti-Slavery International (UK) the world's largest and oldest human rights
organizations, respectively.
"Slavery in Florida agriculture today is not separate from the past indeed, its roots
extend deep within our state's history. Farmworkers have always been, and remain
today, the state's poorest, least powerful workers," said Gerardo Reyes of the CIW. "If
we are to abolish slavery once and for all in Florida agriculture, we must pull it up by

The museum consists of a cargo truck outfitted as a replica of the trucks involved in
a recent slavery operation (U.S. v. Navarrete, 2008) accompanied by displays on the
continuous history of slavery in Florida its roots, the reasons it persists, and its solu-
tions. The exhibits were developed in consultation with ex-captives as well as leading
academic authorities on slavery and labor history in Florida.

Modern Slavery
the roots by addressing farmworker pov-
erty and powerlessness.
Dr. Patrick Mason, a professor of
economics and director of the African
American studies program at Florida
State University notes, "For too long,
political representatives and ordinary citi-
zens have ignored the recurring instances
of enslavement in contemporary Florida.
Indeed, for too long, there has been
insufficient light shining in on the low pay
and indecent working conditions of agri-
cultural workers in this state. The mobile
Florida Modern Slavery Museum is an
impressive and imaginative approach to
shedding new light on these old issues.
Dr. Kevin Bales, the Pulitzer-
nominated author and president of Free
the Slaves, an internationally-respected
anti-slavery advocacy organization, adds,
"There is real slavery in the fields of
Florida. This is not about lousy jobs, but
violent control, vicious exploitation, and
the potential for serious harm and even
death. Even more heartbreaking is the
fact that there has never been a day in
the history of Florida agriculture without
some amount of slavery tainting the food
grown there. That food leaves the hands
of slaves and ends up in the meals we eat
with our families.
The museum tour will culminate as the
cargo truck leads the CIW's Farmworker
Freedom March from April 16 to 18,
when hundreds of farmworkers and their
allies will march from Tampa to Lakeland,
headquarters of the Publix supermarket
chain,
Sanibel residents who support the
anti-slavery effort welcome others to join
them for the upcoming Freedom March
on April 16 to 18. More details about the
coalition and their fight to end slavery can
be found on their Web site at www.ciw-

Rita Skoczen, Neil Glaser and Pat Smart
Three award winning Sanibel-
Captiva Art League artists are
exhibiting in the Sanbiel Library
this month. Stop by to see the work of
Neil Glaser, Rita Mach Skoczen, and
Pat Smart. Glaser's colorful watercolors
are always popular with people on the
island. Skoczen has beautiful paintings
of Sanibel's birds, and Smart is showing
mostly batiks, many of which feature
her favorite feathered friend, Gabby.


White Ibis, batik by Pat Smart
Glaser is a realistic watercolorist who
draws his subject matter from everyday
life. His work is clear in design with an
emphasis on the play of light and shadow
on the environment. His subjects range


from rural Ohio landscapes to the rug-
ged coast of Maine to the backcountry of
Florida. By painting exclusively with trans-
parent watercolors, he takes advantage
of the subtleties inherent in the medium
whether it be the soft neutral shades of a
winter landscape or the dazzling colors of
a Florida sunset.
Skoczen has won numerous awards
locally and nationally. She was well
known as a portrait artist in Michigan for
20 years before she decided to devote
her time to her own personal pursuits in
art. She has been a resident of Sanibel
for 28 years and spends her summers
back in Rochester Hills, Michigan,
Smart is from the Albany, New
York area. A former elementary school
teacher, she retired early to pursue an art
career. She spends summer in Upstate
New York and lives on Sanibel from
November to May. Nature and travel
provide inspiration for her many artistic
endeavors. While she has done collage,
and paints in oil and acrylics, printmaking
was a major focus for a while. Watercolor
and monotype continue to be favorite
activities, and she recently returned to an
early love: batik.

you've talked with them, you may have

Urges Long Term
U.S. Commitment
by Max Friedersdorf
Citing Pakistan's
60 years of
support for
America's battles
in the Middle East
against the Soviet
Union, Al Quaeda
and the Taliban,
Ambassador Husain
Haqqani told The
Forum at BIG ARTS on February 28
that Pakistan needs reassurance "this
time around" that the U.S. won't leave
after the fighting is over.
Haqqani described his country's rela-
tionship with Washington as "a strategic
partnership with the new U.S. leader-
ship," and expressed hope there will not
be a repeat of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and
80s, when the U.S. came in militarily
and left without assisting Pakistan's social
development and infrastructure.
The ambassador recalled Pakistan pro-
viding the "staging ground" for U-2 spy
plane flights over the Soviet Union in the
1950s, culminating in the shooting down
of Gary Powers, and the launching pad
for "Charlie Wilson's War" in the 1980s
when U.S. stinger missiles supplied to the
Taliban helped drive the Soviets out of


Pakistan was created in 1947 when
it was born out of the partition of India
by the British. The division of India and
you anrnedhtow, codn orAbssadsodr

""is'tan has fallen behind India eco-
nomically, the ambassador explained,
because India wisely invested in education
which was neglected by Pakistan, "a criti-
cal mistake," he added.
The Taliban is not popular with the
Pakistani people, he added, but has a
"hardened cadre that can maximize its
impact with minimum numbers. With
opium revenue, the Taliban can pay its
foot soldiers more than the Afghanistan
Army can pay its troops," Haqqani
stated.M

Husain Haqqani, Pakistan ambassador to the United States, addressed The Forum at BIG
ARTS on February 28 and was honored at a reception in Phillips Gallery where he was
greeted by Jean Marshall, a BIG ARTS Forum subscriber photo by Charles Simms


Afghanistan.
In the the present U.S. conflict against
the Taliban and Al Quaeda, Haqqani said
that Pakistan has 140,000 troops along
the Afghanistan border "working closer
than ever with the U.S. militarily.
Haqqani also cited the "tremendous
success in eliminating the Al Quaeda
leadership with the unpiloted drone mis-
siles," but added, "It is difficult to sustain
this relationship (with the U.S.) when
there is a suspicion that you like to use us
and leave.


During the question period most of the
queries touched on the tense relationship
between Pakistan and neighboring India,
both possessing nuclear weapons.

South Of Providence
Sanibel Historical Village contains poems about island lore, Buck ponders the
story of the man who owned the Algiers in The Ballad of the Riverboat Algiers:
"Dead man dead man you beached the riverboat a queen afloat her name Algiers...
you turned the Algiers into a palace what she once was then forever lost...
Italy is a chapter which recalls images of that country. Lucca Anfiteatro describes
a daylong vision from the old amphitheater: "The windows... opened to morning sun
to sounds of sweepers in the piazza..." then later "... another hot night of mid summer
ends and simple wonders of living continue as the bells of nearby St. Frediano toll."
South of Providence is available at island book stores and the Historical Museum.M


Democratic Club Program
n Thursday night March 18, at 7 p.m. at The Sanibel Library, the
Democratic Club of the Islands will be presenting a program featuring Dr.
ORobert Hilliard speaking about the declining impact of newspapers and the
rising impact of alternative media and its ownership on our politics and political dis-
course. His talk can best be titled, Political Coverage: It's the Ownership, Stupid!
Dr. Hilliard, a professor emeritus, was formerly the dean of graduate studies and
dean of continuing education at Emerson College. He has taught numerous courses on
media programming, The Media and the Holocaust, Hate.com, and communication
law.
He will be sharing his insights on the impact on politics and political discourse as
the traditional 'Big Dogs' newspapers, network TV and weekly news magazines -
are declining and are being "dumbed down." Alternatives competing and increasingly
ideological 24/7 cable with its blurred lines between reporting and commentary, large-
ly-unedited blogs, ubiquitous talk radio bloviating, "friendings" on Facebook, 140-char-
acter tweets on Twitter are capturing more eyes and ears today.
Dr. Hilliard was formerly chief of the Public Broadcasting Branch of the Federal
Communications Commission and chair of the Federal Interagency Media Committee
for the White House: he is frequent lecturer on media and education, speaking all over
the world. He is the author of more than 30 books on communication, including sev-
eral leading media texts.#

In his book, Bringing Nature Home,
he passionately argues that it isn t too

that we all have a significant role in the
process. If you want to create ecosystems
with a diversity of animal species, we first
have to encourage a healthy diversity
of plants. It s simple: By gardening with

munities.
An engaging speaker, Tallamy has
criss-crossed Florida over the past year
speaking on the importance of natives
and diversity. Dr. Richard Baker, an ento-
mologist and president of Pelican Island
Audubon, supports this view. He states
that insects represent 85 percent of all
animal species (mammals 4,000, birds
9,000, reptiles and amphibians 5,500
and fishes 18,000). There are more spe-
cies of dragonflies than mammals and
almost twice as many butterflies as birds,
emphasizing the vital role insects play as
food sources on the food chain.


Doug TallamY
At 1p.m. Saturday, March 13
in the Sanibel Library, Sanibel-
ACaptiva Audubon will host
Doug Tallamy to speak on the critical
importance of insects and native plants.
Tallamy is currently professor and chair
of the Department of Entomology and
Wildlife Ecology at the University of
Delaware in Newark, Delaware, where
he has written more than 65 research
articles and has taught insect taxonomy,
behavioral ecology, and other subjects.
Chief among his research goals is to
understand the many ways insects inter-
act with plants and how such interactions


Tallamy's book
With few exceptions, neither we nor
anyone else can live without plants.
Plants are a primary producer on the
food web. Nearly all terrestrial bird spe-
cies (96 percent) in North America rely

Film Series
Features David
Lean's Classics

ents the annual Director Series host-
ed by Sanibel resident Sid Picker. The
director chosen this year is the British
writer/director David Lean, who contrib-
uted to a plethora of highly successful
films of varying genres, both in the U.K.
and Hollywood, over the course of a
long career.
Acclaimed and praised by directors
such as Steven Spielberg and Stanley
Kubrick, Lean has four films in the top
11 of the British Film Institute's Top 100
British Films
Picker will lead an educational dis-
cussion before and after the screening
focused on the director and his classic
films. Admission is $5
The series opens with the 1945 Brief
Encounter Wednesday, March 24, at 1
p.m
Break out the handkerchiefs for this
Oscar nominee, a wondrously warm and
weepy story of an unconsummated love
affair between two married, middle-class
middle-aged people. The screenplay was
adapted and based on a short one-act
stage play by No 1 Coward and features
Rachmaninoff s Piano Concerto No. 2
Hobson's Choice, winner of the
British Film Institute Best Film award of
1954, will be shown Wednesday, March
31, at 1 p.m. Charles Laughton delivers

a bravura performance as a self-impor-
tant alcoholic bootmaker who attempts to
dictate his daughter s choice of husband,
only to find that she marries his down-
trodden and simpleminded employee and
starts a rival business.
Summertime is a variant on Lean's
middle-age romance theme. A school
teacher, played by Katharine Hepburn,
spends her summer in Italy. Her lack of
romantic experience makes her insatia-
bly vulnerable to the lush beauty around
her, and leaves her wide open to the
charms of a handsome Italian man. So
intoxicated is Jane by their whirlwind
affair that she is reluctant to relinquish
her new love, even after discovering that
he is married and has a family. A touch-
ing performance by Hepburn and stun-
ning Technicolor scenes of Venice make
Summertime an enchanting classic. Lean
won a Best Director Oscar nomination


Films will be shown with surround
sound in high definition using a high-qual-
ity screen and projector in Schein Hall. A
sound-enhancement system for the hear-
ing impaired is available. Mini-series film
tickets are $5.

My Friend
by Osama Alomar
When you feel, my friend,
That your spirit is empty,
More empty than the insubstantial universe,
I am your wishing cap.
When you think that man's experience in evil is greater
Than the night's experience in silence,
Call me to give back to you trust in the good of mankind.
When you see that silence over betrayals of friends is greater
Than the silence of the mute on a planet with no air,
Motion to me to spread optimism in your soul.
When the revolution rages within your self like
An addicted man gambling away with his cards
Masses of money,
When you feel that the hearts of all mankind
Are powerless to bear the knocking of your heart,
And the fire of anger colors your face at the betrayal of friends
As fire colors the piece of steel,
My friendship is a thousand genies in lamps held between your hands.
When you are convinced that love and smiles are
Condolences in deserts of barren life where
E wIn tchane u~abl to enter happiness into your heart.
Osama Alomar is a Syrian poet and short story writer He has published three
collections of short stories and one volume of poetry in Arabic. Hie is a regular
contributor to various newspapers and journals in Syria and the Arab world. A
prominent practitioner of the Arabic "very short story,, he is a past winner of the
Najlaa Muharam Short Story Contest in Egypt (2007). His work is regularly heard
on the BBC Arabic Service. Born in Damascus, Alomar currently lives in Chicago
and had an opportunity to spend a week on Sanibel this February. Seven of his
short stories in translation will appear in the forthcoming 2010 edition of the lit-
erary annual Noon.0


Michele Albion


Author Michele Albion will discuss
her book The Florida Life of
AThomas Edison at the Sanibel
Public Library on Wednesday, March 17
at 2 p.m.
Albion grew up in Maine with a great
respect for the past. She has degrees
from the University of Maine and George
Washington University. Before becom-
ing a writer, Albion worked at a number
of museums including Fort Western
Museum, The Maine State Museum, The
U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and
The Edison & Ford Winter Estates.
While curator at the Edison & Ford
Winter Estates, Albion was fascinated
by both Thomas and Mina Edison. The
Florida Life of Thomas Edison was
published in 2008. Her second book,
tentatively titled, The Quotable Thomas
Edison, is in the process of being pub-
lished. She is currently working on her
third book, The Quotable Henry Ford.
While Albion has found both Edison and
Ford fascinating, she is seeking to do
her next major project on a significant
American woman.M

The Sanctuary members raised the money through sales of a cookbook at the club
and to the public. Sanctuary members offered 400 recipes for use in the book, and
enthusiastically backed the project.
"This means so much to us, and we can really use the money for technologies like
computers and surround sound," said Von Harten. "We are so fortunate we can pro-
vide this to the students because of the generosity of the community."
The Sanctuary has developed a tradition of supporting the school, playing a major
role in the capital campaign that provided technological enhancements when the
middle school was built.

Breezy Foundation. Plans are under way to make this a one-of-a-kind evening,
not to be missed. All of the proceeds will go to the welfare of domestic ani-

The Onyx & Breezy Foundation, a non-profit organization, was named in honor
and in memory of two beloved black Labradors owned by part-time Sanibel residents
Mark and Wanda Shefts. They have raised money for the welfare of animals nation-
wide and want the focus of this event to be on raising important support for Lee

had to raise her voice to be heard.
"I also have a handheld mike for the
children so others can hear them," she
says. Many children are soft spoken,
especially when they have to read aloud.
But the sophisticated technology came
with a hefty price tag. For example, the
Sanibel School Fund paid $40,000 seven
years ago to install the audio-enhance-
ment system in all the classrooms. The
installation cost $1,600 per classroom.
Because the audio enhancement sys-
tem wasn't in the school budget at the
time, parents and friends gave generously
to the school fund to pay for the system.
This included the annual car fundraiser,
which this year features the electric vehi-
cle parked in front of Bank of the Islands
on Periwinkle Way.
The nonprofit organization provides
educational opportunities such as the for-
eign language program, technology, arts
and music resources not funded by the
county school system. Since its inception
in 1998, The Sanibel School Fund has
supplied classroom audio-visual enhance-
ments, computers, art supplies, musical
instruments and the Spanish-language
program. The cost of these unfunded

aloud in class.

School, students can hear Kamosa even
when the first-grade teacher s back is
turned to them.
The audio system, paid for by gener-
ous contributors to the nonprofit Sanibel
School Fund, connects microphones with
speakers strategically situated throughout
every classroom.
"If I don't have my microphone, my
kids do not pay attention to me," says
Kamosa, who has been teaching children
for 35 years, including 26 years at The
Sanibel School. "If I put my microphone
on, they do."

As anyone relegated to the back of
the class can appreciate, hearing well is a
key to top performance in school. That's
backed up by university research, which
shows that an audio-enhanced classroom
reverses the trend of failing scores.
With the audio enhancement in each
classroom, children can hear their teacher
as well as if she was right behind them.
"The children often don't know where
I'm standing," Kamosa chuckles. "I could
be right next to them.
What's more, teachers don't have to
use a stage voice to be heard. "I would

deceased loved one. Often, as the conver-
sation progresses, donors find that they
will also consider other types, such as
community funds to be used where most
needed or field of interest funds.
Some examples include:
*City of Sanibel Employee Dependent
Scholarship Fund, created in 2005, for
dependents of Sanibel employees to
attend a college or university.
*Jane H. Berktold Scholarship Fund,
created in 2008, for graduates of Lee
County public high schools.
*Love of Bonita Empowerment
Scholarship Fund, created in 2002, for
books, tuition and /or course fees for
Bonita Springs residents to attend a col-
lege or technical school.
You can find examples of other schol-
arship funds by visiting our Web site at
www.floridacommunity.com. It also has
links to some university and community
foundation scholarship Web sites, and
Lee County Public Schools and the Cape
Coral Chamber of Commerce have
partnered on a local Web site www.col-
legescholarship4u.com. To donate to an
existing scholarship fund or if you would
like to speak to someone about creating a
legacy, call the foundation at 274-5900.
The Good Neighbor Community
Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva is a divi-
sion of the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation. Through 331 endowed
funds, the foundation has provided more
than $45 million in grants and scholar-
ships. For more information, call 274-
5900, or visit www.floridacommunity.
com.0s


First, a few reminders:
*The majority of funds at the
Community Foundation are endowed,
meaning a percentage of the principal is
paid out each year to 501(c)3 organiza-
tions. Endowments are invested for per-
petuity and grow over time.
*The Community Foundation works
with donors from Sanibel and Captiva as
well as all communities within our five-
county service area of Lee, Charlotte,
Collier, Hendly, and Glades.
*The Good Neighbor Community
Foundation is a division of the Southwest
Florida Community Foundation, and is
guided by 14 advisory board members
who live on Sanibel and Captiva.
*Scholarship funds are only one
type of fund offered at the Community
Foundation. Donors can consider other
types as well, including community funds
(to be used where most needed), designat-
ed funds (to support a specific agency(s)),
field of interest funds (to support a gener-
al area of interest like the environment or
the arts), donor-advised funds, and agency
endowment funds (for agencies that wish
to place their endowments with us).
The scholarship program is a year-
round endeavor. The Community
Foundation has approximately 60 dif-
ferent endowed scholarship funds.
Depending on the size and criteria of the
fund, some will provide more than one
scholarship. Out of those 60 funds, we
are able to offer 150 awards!
Promotion of the program begins in
the fall, when scholarship applications are
mailed to high schools and universities,
included on our Web site, and distributed


at college fairs and workshops. Typically,
students will submit their applications by
a pre-determined deadline in February.
The applications are first pre-screened for
completeness and to see if the student
qualifies for the scholarship criteria. This
year, the Community Foundation received
over 3,000 applications. (Compare that
to 1,700 applications received in 2009
and 1,000 in 2008.)
Then, community leaders, who have
been screened and trained, review each
scholarship and select the students who
are the most qualified for the particular
scholarship for which they applied. This
year, over 100 community leaders will be
taking part in the review process.
The finalists then go through a third
review by staff and trustees on the schol-
arship committee. Recommendations
are submitted to our board of trustees
for final approval. Award recipients are
notified in May and may participate in a
recognition dinner in June.
Throughout the year, staff members
communicate directly with each college
and university that the students attend
and submit the scholarship funding direct-
ly to the school (not the student). In addi-
tion, if there are any grade point average
expectations or additional standards, staff
ensures that the student has met these
required goals before issuing checks.
New scholarship funds are created
each year when donors approach the
Community Foundation to discuss their
philanthropic goals. The motivations
for establishing a scholarship vary from
wanting to recreate an opportunity that
they received as a student to honoring a

rowed. Overnight, it seems, my daugh-
ters are closer to graduation than they
are to the day they were born. For all
parents, these childhood years require
much financial and emotional prepara-
tion to send a child off to college.
Some parents are willing (and able) to
provide for all the tuition and educational
expenses for their children. Others will
take out loans or second jobs to supple-
ment for the expense. I've often heard
that parents and children should aim
for the concept of thirds; a third of the
expense will be paid for by the parents, a
third will be earned through scholarships,
and a third will be provided directly by the
student via their own employment.
A few essential facts:
Scholarships are a critical part of
today's college experience. This article
focuses on the scholarship funds offered
by the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation and how the program is
administered and operates.

h,-.~ Fw Massima collection featuring one-of-a-kind jewelry created
-with diamond slices, rutilated quartz or agate. A Di Massima
designer will be on hand to answer questions and introduce
their newest designs.
Diamond slices occur when rough, uncut diamonds are laser cut and polished,
allowing you to see the innermost beauty of their natural color. These colors include
white, black and shades of cognac. The 18kt gold frames set with brilliant white dia-
monds create a beautiful contrast to these natural colors.
Rutilated quartz occurs when the natural mineral quartz forms needle-like crys-
tal inclusions inside the stone in unique,
one-of-a-kind patterns. This stone is said
to enhance creativity, relieve depression
and loneliness and slow down the aging
process. Agate has been embraced by col-
lectors, artists and designers for its bright
color and fineness of grain. Many cultures
look to agate as a source for calming one s
spirit, improving memory and providing
emotional healing.
Both collections include necklaces, ear-
rings and rings framed in 18kt gold sur-
rounded by sparkling white diamonds and

"You'll Appreciate the Difference





























The Triquetra is a triangular shaped piece that intertwines three leaf shapes held
together by a circle. This is a symbol for the holy trinity and is often carved into stone
blocks used in churches, signifying the continuous rebirth of souls.
The Triskelion is based on the Greek term meaning "three legged." The sign looks
like three legs running. The Celts used it as a symbol to indicate progress and competi-
tion. The wearer of such a symbol would be well esteemed within the community and
would be seen as someone who was going somewhere and would achieve good things.
The five-fold pattern is a series of intertwined links in the shape of a circle. It repre-
sents balance, with the four outer circles again representing the four elements: earth,
fire, water and air. This balance was something all Celts worked towards achieving, in
this life or the next.
Whether the Celtic symbol you choose is selected to demonstrate your understand-
ing of the various spiritual levels in the search of purification of the soul, or because
you just like the way it looks, Celtic jewelry is timeless.

Hidden Treasures

Celtic Jewelry A Treasure For Immortals
by Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell
Jewelry from Celtic times traces its roots from the second
Millennium B.C. to the first century B.C. The Celts were
Members of an early Indo-European people that had
spread over much of Europe. Celts believed in reincarnation
until complete spiritual fulfillment was achieved and this theme
is reflected in their jewelry.
Celtic craftsmen made outstanding jewelry such as rings,
bracelets, pendants and brooches that were sought-after across Europe and the
Mediterranean. Many of the ancient religious beliefs that gave rise to various designs
have survived. These silver and gold pieces featured Celtic symbols such as crosses,
Claddagh, triquetra, triskelion, and five-fold.
The Celtic cross had its start in the British Isles, appearing primarily in Ireland. This
symbol has long represented the bridge or passage between heaven and earth. The
four arms may also be connotative of the four elements: fire, earth, air and water.
The ring in the center of the Celtic cross is a symbol of infinite love, specifically, the
endlessness of God's love. The center ring may also represent a halo emanating from
the Christ. This symbol represents the very highest ideals and aspirations of the Celts,
and this piece of jewelry is one of the most timeless.
Another timeless piece is the Claddagh ring (pronounced klla d ii), named after an
ancient village just outside Galway City in Ireland. The ring gets its origin from Richard
Joyce. Captured and taken from his homeland, Joyce was held as a slave in the West
Indies. Eventually, he was sold to a Moorish goldsmith, where Joyce learned the art of
jewelry making. He eventually gained his freedom and immediately went back to his
homeland and settled down in the village of Claddagh. Here he continued his gold-
smith practice by making Celtic jewelry specifically producing the Claddagh to cel-
ebrate his return home and to have a symbol for his love of kin and country.
As seen today, the Claddagh has become quite popular as a sign of betrothal as
well as friendship and love. Celtic symbols are evident in the Claddagh as they are
commonly seen in all jewelry. The heart of the Claddagh represents love, the crown
is symbolic of loyalty, and the hands represent friendship. If the Claddagh ring is worn
on the right hand with the crown facing the base of the finger, the ring-wearer is not
in a serious relationship. Worn on the right hand with the crown facing away from the
base of the finger indicates someone is in a serious relationship. According to some,
if a Claddagh is worn on the left hand with the crown in either direction it means that
the wearer is married.

Sundial's Time

ba N C~Ome

Two years is a long time to wait.
Luckily, with a name like the
Sundial, time is on their side. Last
Thursday night the Sundial s softball
team claimed their first victory in two
years by defeating the Bailey s Baggers
in a thriller.
Sundial team captain, "the Notorious
Joe Notarian slugged his team s first ever
recorded homerun during the game.
Many Sanibellians will recall that Wilma,
Sanibel s only crocodile, sadly passed
away recently. It is reported by establish-
ment news media that the cold weather
caused the ailing and aging creature to
die. The truth is known by those of the
Sanibel Softball League Joe Notarian s
homerun flew deep into "Ding" Darling
striking Wilma as she peacefully devoured
swamp critters.
During the game, the Sundial took
an aggressive 19 to 4 lead by the third
inning. However, Bailey s Baggers dug
their cleats in and narrowed the gap
between the teams to just four runs. It
was, however, too little too late as the
Sundial s time had come. Victory was
theirs. Final: Sundial 23 Bailey s 16. Sam
Bailey was heard saying, "Back in my day
we had to use coconuts as softballs."
In the other games of the week the
Great White tossed the Lazy Flamingo
onto the grill with a 16-6 win, the Sanibel
Grill Wrecking Crew sent shock waves
over Sanctuany Island Electric with a 20-9
win, and the Aztec Plumbing Warriors
buried their hatchet into the skull of All
Island Glass by winning 27-13.
The Sanibel Adult Softball League
plays every Wednesday and Thursday
night at The Sanibel School ball fields.

ation center at 472-0345.e

It s rare to find something parents and

percent of the points, so this was close and very competitive.

The ladies played luck of the roll
this week as they headed out in gale
force winds as yet again another cold
front swept down from the north. The
game was one in which each player was
assigned a player number, one to four,
and upon completing each hole the ladies
would roll dice to see which ladies' score
would be used for the team. Roll a "1"
and player 1's score would be used, roll
a "2" and player 2 would be used, etc.
A "6" would allow the team to select the
best score for the hole.


dil3th the gool a rtdhe rollin o he
ets constricted golf swings and numb
hands made rolling the dice more dif-
ficult. Although there were few if any
left-handers, many right-handed gloves
left the pro shop simply to keep hands
warm. Eventually the ladies would make
it through the harsh conditions and return
their dice which by which time they
resembled small ice cubes.
The 18-holers were all extremely close
with only two strokes separating the first
and last place teams.#

Mason's win over league organizer

the first game but lost the second when
he tried a break out and left an open

Mental, strategic, Physical
And Technical Aspects
Of The Tennis Game
by Louis Vosloo

he four main areas to focus on in the tennis game are
of mental toughness are the ability to stay cool under pres-
sure during tough points, overcoming nerves in tight situations,
playing in front of a crowd, and handling 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 coordination. And 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!M

The 17-Year-Old Son Of Two

Professional Ballet Dancers Is Prized

Rookie Of The Minnesota Twins
by Ed Frank

Sports Complex in Fort Myers 150 Minor League
ballplayers from 18 countries in the farm system of the
Minnesota Twins.
Behind nearly every one from 16-year-olds to veteran minor
leaguers is a story of its own, all chasing the same dream of
making it to the Big Leagues.
SOne most interesting is that of Maximilian Kepler-Rozycki, a
1' strapping 17-year-old outfielder from Berlin, Germany, who goes
simply by the name of Max Kepler.
Standing six-foot-four and weighing 180 pounds, the young-
ster speaks three languages (perfect English) and already has been tagged as the 10th
best prospect in the vast Twins organization by Baseball America. That is the reason
why the Twins gave him an $800,000 signing bonus last July.
This was a stunning sum for a teenager out of Europe and a record for an ama-
teur position player outside the U.S. and Latin America. Officials from a dozen Major
League teams, including the New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs, came to Berlin to
check out the versatile outfielder. They compare his compact, graceful swing to that
of Shawn Green, who retired in 2007 with 328 home runs. Scouts say he possesses
baseball s five "tools" speed, arm strength, glovework and the ability to hit for both


1. In 1965, Boston's Tony Conigliaro became the youngest home-run champion in Ameri-
can League history. How young was he?
2. Adam Dunn hit 40-plus home runs in five consecutive major-league seasons (2004-
'08). Who is the only player to do it in seven consecutive seasons?
3. Who is the career passing-yards leader at Auburn University?
4. Name the first NBA coach to win 1,000 games with the same team.
5. Who was the first European player to be taken No. 1 overall in the NHL Draft?
6. Dale Earnhardt and Darrell Waltrip combined to win six of the 10 NASCAR Cup Series
championships during the 1980s. Which drivers won the other four?
7. The Roger Federer-Andy Roddick fifth set at Wimbledon in 2009 set a Grand Slam
final men's tennis record of 30 games. What had been the mark?

"He was just 16 when he
came over here and he sure
held his own in the Instructional 4
League," said Jim Rantz, the ~
long-time senior director of the sq 41;, ~ ~ '
Twins Minor Leagues.
Kepler s family background
provides strong clues to the teen--
ager s talent and prized athleti-*
cism.
His mother, born in Texas, I
and his father of Polish descent,
are both professional ballet danc-
ers. Although his mother has
retired from ballet, his father
still teaches at a ballet school in
Germany.
Baseball is not as popular in
Germany as soccer, but young
Max started playing baseball at
the age of seven. He later com- -
peted in several public leagues
until signed by Twins scout Mike
Ratcliff. Jim Rantz, left, senior director of the Minor Leagues
Not surprising, when he for the Minnesota Twins, with promising rookie Max
enrolled in South Fort Myers Kepler from Germany
High School he was recruited
to play baseball. Already under
contract with the Twins, he was
told he could not. But the high school is directly across from the Lee County Sports
Complex so Max would cross the street after school to work out in the Twins training
rooms.
Rantz has been with the Twins organization for 50 years, 24 as head of their farm
system, so he knows talent when he sees it. There is a gleam in his eyes when he talks
about this German-American youngster who both bats and throws left handed.
Rantz said that it is likely that Kepler will start his professional career right here with
the rookie Gulf Coast League Twins who begin their season in June at the Lee County

As ead wh ter he has other athletic siblings, Max said his 14-year-old sister plays

Beachview-

Dunes Clash

Gets Underway
by John Boynton

Rain washed out Day 1 of the
ment on Tuesday, March 3, but
betterweather the next day saw 22 two-
man teams square off at The Dunes in
a scramble format. The Dunes golfers
prevailed on their home course, winning
217 out 396 holes played (55 percent).
If the game was baseball, The Dunes
would be the Yankees and Beachview
would be the Red Sox. The Red Sox/
Yankees rivalry is one of the best in
American sports, but is it really a "rival-
ry?" The sad fact is that since infamous
Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold Babe
Ruth to the Bronx Bombers in 1919 to
finance a Broadway show, the Yankees
have been World Champions 27 times,
while the Red Sox have reached the pin-
nacle just twice.
Similarly, The Dunes has beaten
Beachview 18 out of 23 times since their
rivalry began in 1987, including 14 in a
row from 1990 to 2003 and four out of
the last six years. So why continue such
a lopsided competition? Any Red Sox
fan will tell you that last year s failure is
a distant memory by the time pitchers,
catchers, rookies, and flashy free agents
show up the next year for spring training.
Hope and optimism cary fans into the
new season.

Space At Home
by Cindy Malszycki
W ith the
\ \/technology
VVrevolution
more and more '
people today rely
-s r on computers for
t' 1 work and play.
Because of the
computer, many
former commuters
are now working
from their homes.
A growing number of homeowners
regularly use their computers for every-
thing from paying bills and doing taxes
to staying in touch with family and
friends. Coupled with the fact that even
small children are spending more and
more time with computer educational
programs and games, a workspace has
become an important area of the home.
For some, the workspace is right at
the kitchen table. While this is fine from
time to time, when mealtime rolls around
and you have papers spread from one


end to the other, this means sorting and
stacking in a hurry. So, look around your
home with an eye for finding an adequate
area to set aside for your workspace. For
some, it might be a spare bedroom. For
others, the task calls for a little more inge-
nuity such as using an extra wide hallway
or a corner of the family room.
When space is at a premium, a com-
puter armoire may be the answer. Indeed,
several manufacturers are outfitting these
cabinets with everything you need to
house all your technical equipment. In
this way, almost any room of the house
can do double duty. An armoire, when
closed, looks as though it might house
precious china or silver.
When planning your workspace, don't
forget the importance of aesthetics. The
area would be pleasing to the eye think
about the amount of time you will be
spending there. Combine aesthetics with
function by installing blinds or shades.
Light control is important since comput-
ers should never receive direct sunlight.
You'll also want to prevent glare on a
computer screen.
For better illumination, install track
lighting over your workspace. In addition'
of course, a desk lamp is a must. Proper
lighting is more than just a source by


which to see; it also affects our frame of
mind. Good illumination encourages pro-
ductivity and concentration.
If you thought there was no room
in your home for an office, look again,
With imaginative space planning, you can
come up with a workspace solution that
doesn't include the kitchen table.

rator on Sanibel. She can be reached at

man aory open-
ing protection to
get wind insurance.
Many other cus-
tomers had an additional year to com-
ply. This is the year that everyone must
make the decision on how to meet the
opening protection rules. And there are
options, not always with Citizens, not
always as expensive as people think.
Opening protection means all win-
dows, doors, sky lights, etc. must meet
the guidelines covered on #8 of the uni-
form mitigation form. Citizens will only


accept the box marked "basic" or better
in providing wind insurance to high value
homes. By looking at the form's explana-
tions of what each category means, the
typical customer has no idea which open-
ing protections will satisfy the require-
ment. Therefore, a contractor or other
licensed individual is brought in to fill out
the form. Even then, there is disagree-
ment, as these individuals have been to
different classes to get certified and the
issue goes on.
Shutters, impact glass and even cer-
tain rated films will allow a home to be
insured with Citizens. However, there are
companies who don't require those same
rules be followed on opening protection
to get coverage, thus giving the insured
more options. Additionally, homes over
$2 million are going to be non-renewed
this year as well, unless the agent fills out
documents showing no other coverage
is available, and then up to a three-year
extension will be given. Once again,
there are options. Too often high value
homeowners are self insuring when alter-
natives haven't been explained to them.
Be informed before you discontinue such
important coverage.
Take the time to ask your agent to
explain the various options available, ask
your neighbors what they are doing and
ask local suppliers what different types of
opening protection they provide. This is
an expensive decision that also affects the
ability to sell your home, if that is your
goal.

Captiva insurance agent, wlho can be

Volunteers Created 13,000 Hearts

The Huggie Hearts volun-
residents who hand-sew
pillows for cardiac patients in
Southwest Florida, recently,
created their 13,000th pillow
which will be on display in the
Gulf Coast Medical Center to
honor the many years and pil-
lows that have been given to
cardiac patients.
The pillows allow patients to
have something to hug as they
recuperate from heart surgery.
Coughing to expel fluid is very
important and hugging the pil-
low to the chest is very helpful. it ] 3, O0 0
The fact that the pillow displays
the shape of a heart is a bonus
as the volunteers send loving
wishes on to patients with each
pillow. Huggie Heart pillow
"The patients who receive
pillows are so excited to know that volunteers work diligently to give them a thoughtful
gift to help them through a tough ordeal," said Judy Bolton, Shell Point resident and
current Huggie Hearts Group leader. "I recently met a resident at Shell Point who still
has her Huggie Heart pillow from 20 years ago. It has meant so much to her, and she


susan Crowe, director, Volunteer Resources & Auxiliary Development for Gulf coast
Medical Center; Nancy Stanfield, volunteer president, Gulf coast Medical Center
Auxiliary; Judy Bolton, Shell Point resident, and June Schneider, nursing director, Gulf
coast Medical Center

still remembers the great feeling she had in receiving that gift."
Shell Point resident Hebe Henderson started Huggie Hearts at Shell Point in 1989.
Reaching the 13,000th heart pillow has been a very rewarding process for the resi-
dent volunteers as well as the heart patients of Lee County. Shell Point residents Janet
Plume, Martha Ryckman, Winona Whitehead, Virginia Brown and Betty Muench
assisted Judy Bolton with the stuffing of this memorable pillow. Resident Peg Glosser
also participates regularly with the group, but was not available when this group met to
create the 13,000th pillow.
"Volunteering is a gift to the community, and the rewards are profound," said
Susan Crowe, director of Volunteer Resources & Auxiliary Development for Gulf Coast
Medical Center.#

"These are our priorities, and when

"They all agreed Jay and I were on the
right track with these two organizations,
and we're excited to have 100 percent
participation."
The agents now make a contribution
with each transaction, and Richter and


Mondelli as owners match it. Since May
of 2009 when the program started, the
agents and owners together have donated
$5,000 to PURRE
"I see the total ramping up each quar-
ter," Mondelli said. "Our realtors are step-
ping up even when our market is difficult.
We have great people who work for us. I
just can't say enough about our agents."
John R. Wood agents volunteer for
PURRE as well, teaming up for the July

booths at events.M

Last year, John R. Wood owners

"We said from the very beginning

do that in a meaningful way." Individually,

booking agency and tour man-
agement company, he never imagined
that it would be a 35-year adventure.
"I grew up in the San Francisco Bay
area in the '60s and was involved with
music and musicians since I was 15 in
1965. It was really the start of garage
bands and music technology. I began
lifelong friendships with the guys in
Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) by
booking them before they were CCR
and were known as the Golliwogs. One

wh h beaatdsed S edieNi s ad Lnitdsey
Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac when
they were teenagers. It was an extremely
exciting time in my neighborhood: the
Doobie Brothers, Jefferson Airplane
Dead, Tower of Power, Steve Miller '
Moby Grape and quite a number of'
one-hit wonder bands like Syndicate of
Sound and Count Five," said Irving. "I
got to work a Rolling Stones concert in
San Jose when I was 15 and my job was
keeping girls off the stage. I was hooked
on the business

kids, Vinnie and Rita Ann. They began
to provide services such as location man-
agement for film crews shooting major

and USA due to her skills and contacts,"
said Tim. "It was a fun time for many
island families and the first job for many
of the young models."

A Survival Story
As told by his hurnan friend Margaret L.
Johnson

This is an amazing story of survival and
human compassion. Chance was found in
very bad shape in the Fort Myers area. The
experts who evaluated him are certain he had
been used as a bait dog for dog fighting purpos-
es. How he escaped is anyone s guess. A sweet
soul came upon him roadside, scooped him up
and took him to an animal hospital for much
needed medical attention. As he recovered with
aid from a personal attendant, Chance s story
quickly spread throughout the state.
Touched by the idea of a battered life forever
changed through pure kindness, and wanting
to help, strangers sent money for his vet care
expenses. The rescuer set up a fund at the animal
hospital in Fort Myers and there remains almost
$500 tagged with his name. Chance has recov-
ered beautifully as seen in this photo and now is
in need of a permanent new home and second
chance at life.
The best testimony to Chance s demeanor
comes from his rescue team.
Chance loves lying around and he is a big
mush. He is very easy to take care of since he
doesn t require anything but love. He is a great
dog with low maintenance. Just meeting him in
person you can see that he is so calm and sweet.
Even as bad of a shape as he was in when I found
him, he tried his hardest to wag his tail and lick
my hand.
