ACouncil tried piggybacking onto Lee
County's contract, expecting a reduc-
tion for economy of scale. But when
the county's bids came in, that wasn't
the case. The lowest of the four bids
was almost 40 percent higher if Sanibel
were included with the rest of the
county and was two percent higher than
Sanibel's stand-alone bid.
r Resident Claudia Burns asked council
why that would be and council members
were just as puzzled as she.
"We can't fathom what the reason is,

it?" said Burns. "Seems like it," replied

The change he recommends on behalf
of these people was to increase land use

Mayor Mick Denham, who was also at
the sub-committee meeting, said he was
concerned and "a little surprised" by the
presentation as it was not on the agenda.
When the time came for public com-

she was at the sub-committee meeting but
didn't say anything at the time "because I
didn't see any surprise or puzzlement on
the land development code committee.
Mike Valiquette, who chairs both the
sub-committee and the planning commis-
sion, said, "We allowed him (Anderson)
to speak as long as we usually do, which
is untimed." He said the committee is
informal and doesn't have a three-minute
limit like the council.
Valiquette added that he requested
the secretary, Susan Beck, to forward
the minutes of the meeting to the five

Senior Center Becomes Center 4 Life
by Anne Mitchell
Island Seniors is changing its name to Center 4 Life to more effectively market
The Sanibel City Council on Tuesday approved the name change at the request
of the senior center board which in January voted to take the request before the Parks
& Recreation Committee. The committee agreed, said Chris Deal, director of parks
and recreation, in a memo.
"Recent research indicates that the title 'senior center' doesn t adequately reflect the
high activity level found in most centers today, and it makes it difficult to market cen-
ters to younger seniors," Deal said. He added that the board felt the new name also
fits into the city's Fit 4 Life theme.
This name will be used on the newsletter and changed on the outside of the Civic

Catholics devoted to the church were
energized by Vatican II with the release of
rigid, outdated strictures of the past Mass
was celebrated in their own language,
other faiths were welcomed as partners,
ministries were expanded to the poor
and disadvantaged and altar girls and
women readers were introduced. This
opened their minds to endless possibili-
ties. Catholics were told they had rights
and responsibilities and were encouraged
to move forward with the changes of
Gradually, what they gained was
withdrawn as the traditionalist hierarchy
retrenched back to pre-Vatican II practic-
es. Only speakers who preach party line
are allowed to speak. Groups who lean
toward more liberal views are forbidden
to assemble on church property. Catholic
employees and volunteers are dismissed
without recourse if they are perceived to
deviate from approved practices.

During his talk, Stevens references the.. ,

Home Again Sailors Valentine
On March 23 and 25, artist Constance Miller will lead a Sailors Valentine
Workshop at The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum. You can join the class for
Oone day and complete the project on your own or return for the second day.
The cost of the class is $30 per day which includes the kit. Attendees are encour-
aged to bring their own small shells to augment supplies provided in the kit. The
class will be held at the museum from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations are required.
There will be a minimum class size of six participants.
Contrary to myth, Sailors Valentines were not made by sailors in order to pass time
at sea. These very special Valentines are a magnificent shell art form developed in the
early 19th century by the women of Barbados and other Caribbean areas. They were
sold to English and American sailors on their way home from a long journey at sea,
sailors who wanted to take something special home to their loved ones.
Octagonal boxes made of Spanish cedar served as frames for symmetrical and well-
balanced compositions that artists created, in pointillist-like fashion, using small shells

of different colors and shapes. Historians
believe the Valentines were made with
local shells or hells brought to Barbados
Miller is a native of Lewes, Delaware.
After a long, rewarding teaching career,
she retired in 2004 to pursue and further
develop her passion with art.
Drawn to shells as a young child,
Miller explored fine art through shells
early on and that is more than apparent
in her creations. Those talents were fine
tuned while studying at the University of
Delaware where she received a BA and
masters in art with a major in printmak-
That graphics background is evident in
her black and white pen and ink drawings
and scratchboards loaded with whimsy,
much like the artist herself. It was a trip
to Sanibel that took her love for shell art
and led to the craft of Victorian Sailors
Valentines and shell mosaics.

have not started to
reappear yet and
when they do that
will really mark the beginning of spring-
time fishing. Our water temperatures
have finally started to creep back up so
we should be really close to some of the
best fishing all year.
A 70-degree water temperature is usu-
ally the magic number for everything to
start happening but with such a long cold
winter things might pick up a few degrees
coredfish fishing was good last week
with decent mid-day high tides. Redfish
could be caught both under the man-
day. This area gets really good tide flow
from the passes and has lots of healthy
gash' 'tldts derp aun al channels and
Clear winter water makes the area
easy to navigate as a ot ofit is realn
shallow when you get out of the tidal
channels. I suggest fishing the edges of
the flats and drifting through the deeper
channels with the tide. Once you locate
fish simply drop the anchor. Throwing
soft plastic jigs is the way to go if you re
going to drift as you can cover a lot of
ground. Live shrimp under a poppn
cork will also do the trick but be rayt
go through a lot of bait.

in 1 980 and has fished local waters for
more than 25 years. He now! lives in St.

Redfish fishing picks up

on the smaller side but there were a few
quality fish mixed in too. The big redfish

after another. Pot holes around Cork Key
and Panther Key also held good numbers
of redfish but these fish were not quite so
quick to take a bait as the ones around
oyster bars. Chumming them with chunks
of shrimp and waiting them out produced
a few slot-size fish.
While working mangrove islands all
over the sound this week I have been
noticing some of the biggest trout I have
seen all year. These big gator trout are
laid up over sandholes and are often very
spooky. Trout over 20 inches are getting
more and more common and April is
about the best month to catch a really big
one in our area. One of my favorite ways
to trout fish is to work the deeper edges,
sand potholes and drop-offs of grass flats
with soft plastic jigs and shallow running
plugs. Most of the really big trout are lon-
ers and are often more spread out than
the average size ones.
Foster's Point in the middle sound has
been a good area to fish if you're look-
ing for a mixed bag of fish and just good
action. This section of the sound from
Redfish Pass to Captiva Pass is a great
place to spend a few hours if not a whole

Polar Ice In A Climate Change:
Are We Waking Sleeping Giants?
B ~IG ARTS will host Dr. Waleed
CCAbdalati to lecture at 7:30 p.m.
I Wednesday, March 24. Scientists
worldwide have reported the risk that
global warming will cause the polar ice
cap to melt with disastrous results. But
what is really happening to earth's ice
cover, and what does it mean?
Dr. Abdalati, director of the Earth
Science and Observation Center at the
University of Colorado and a global leader
in earth science research, will answer
these and many other questions. He has
worked with NASA to develop satellite
and other remote sensing technologies to
provide groundbreaking information on
the changes to polar ice caps.
Tickets are general admission $25;
students $15. BIG ARTS is located at 900
Dunlop Road, Sanibel. Call 395-0900.
From 1996 to 2008 Dt. Abdalati held
various positions at NASA in which he
conducted and oversaw NASA-funded
research efforts and on glaciers, ice
sheets, sea ice, and polar climate. He Dr. Waleed Abdalati
continues to be heavily involved in the sci-
entific development of several Earth observing-satellites.
He received his masters and Ph.D. from the University of Colorado in 1991 and
1996 respectively, and a B.S. form Syracuse University in 1986. From 1986 to 1990
he worked as a mechanical engineer in the aerospace industry. He has received vari-
ous honors and awards for his research and service to NASA including the NASA
Exceptional Service Medal and the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and
Engineers from the White House.

toxins and reduction of oxygen in the

the ocean's food web, human illnesses,
and economic losses to communities and
It was clear during the hearing this
morning that both witnesses and commit-
tee members were concerned about the
increase in the frequency and duration
of harmful algal blooms in both fresh
and salt water. These increases can be
attributed to changes in water quality,
temperature, sunlight and the increase in
the amount of nutrients in the water. All
of these are challenges found in water in
and around Sanibel.
Mack pointed out that HABs don't
just affect marine life but the very quality
of life for residents and visitors and can
even cause death. He remembered grow-
ing up virtually "on the water" in Sanibel,
Captiva and Fort Myers Beach when red
tide disturbed life for maybe one week out
of a year now and then. "Not long ago,
we had 13 straight months of red tide.
Clearly something is happening, and I'm
not sure we can trust the research that's
out there," Mack continued.
Baird returned to the podium to con-
clude his remarks in dramatic fashion: "If
you're a hotel owner and you get notice
that a red tide is forming off your beach,
you can kiss your season goodbye."
The bill now heads to the Senate
where a similar bill is pending. PURRE
hopes passage in the House will improve
chances for Senate consideration.M
Bloom Bill Passes
The H O SeU
submitted by Michael J. Valiquette,
Chairman PURRE Water coalition
On Friday, March 12, the U.S.
House of Representatives passed
Other Harmful Algal Bloom and
Hypoxia Research and Control Act of
2009. The PURRE Water Coalition has
been pushing for this legislation for the
last two years and was involved in com-
menting on the draft prior to its intro-
duction on September 25, 2009.
During the debate on the House
floor earlier in the week Subcommittee
Chairman Brian Baird from Washington
State mentioned the support of the
PURRE Water Coalition as one of a
"broad group of stakeholders." Prior to
final passage, Sanibel Island was men-
tioned in remarks by Representatives
Connie Mack and Kathy Castor.
"There is simply no more beauti-
ful place to vacation than Sanibel and
Captiva," Castor said. "But tourists simply
don't want to visit polluted beaches, and
word spreads. It is directly tied to jobs,
and if that happened in this economy, it
would be very detrimental."
This legislation would establish and
maintain a National Harmful Algal Bloom
and Hypoxia Program. This program
would develop and coordinate a compre-
hensive strategy to address harmful algal
blooms and hypoxia. It would provide for
the development and implementation of
comprehensive regional action plans to
reduce harmful algal blooms and hypoxia.
It would go a step further and provide the
ability to fund research in technology to
help communities like Sanibel control and
mitigate harmful algal blooms.

Captiva Erosion Prevention District
As the climate change debate
heats up, a related subject of
great interest is sea level rise;
a topic which cannot be ignored by
those living on the coast. The Captiva
Erosion Prevention District (CEPD), as
an entity, is not choosing to enter into
that contentious debate. But, CEPD
monitors the subject and attempts to
keep us apprised of this and other fac-
tors which concern our community
One example comes from authors Orrin
nwP cold de LevlR e p rshd
in 2009... "Despite strong evidence of
global warming and attendant sea level
rise, many communities, governments
and developers continue to ignore the
inevitability of a continued rise in sea
level and the corresponding increase in

"Last month (Februaly) a manuscript was
published in Shoreline: Outside the bub-
ble on Sea Level Rise by Todd L. Walton
Jr. and Robert G. Dean comments face-
tiously about Floridians heading to the
mountains. But, in all seriousness, they
share significant facts of sea level rise
which can be measured; you can weigh
the significance. Walton and Dean's
analysis of The Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change (IPCC) consensus
would place the rise in sea level globally
at about one foot per hundred years. The
IPCC first reported assessments in 2001,
with Dean and Walton providing some of
this in the February issue of Shoreline.
"In the IPCC (2007) Fourth Assessment
Report, there are six families of 'global'
sea level rise scenarios for each scenario
family of climate models with ranges in
value from seven to 23 inches through
2100. If one takes the average of these
scenarios we find that the most likely sea
level rise from 2000 to 2100 is 34.3cm/
century or 3.4mm/year. Although the
IPCC scenarios don t take into account
some catastrophic scenarios incorporat-
ing substantial melting of the glacial ice
sheets... the above can still be considered
as the consensus "most likely" projections
of hundreds of scientists." To read Walton
and Dean's perspective, link to the full
article in FSBPA's Shoreline: http://
tr BPA' S reline continues in the
March issue stating, "We are now pre-
senting another quite distinct perspective
on sea level rise: Bursting the Bubble of
Doom and Adapting to Sea Level Rise
by Randall W. Parkinson, PhD, PG and
Joseph F. Donoghue, PhD. On the sub-
ject of future sea level rise, Parkinson and
Donoghue wrote that the IPCC report
does not factor in important prospects
of glacial meltdowns and the effects of
greenhouse gas emissions. "During the
past two decades the most widely report-
ed sea level forecasts were published by
the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC)... This estimate of sea
level rise was immediately regarded as
too low by many scientists because the
models used... ignored the rapid disinte-
gration of Antarctic and Greenland ice...
IPCC's estimate also failed to account
for two other phenomena likely to affect
sea level rise... such as release of the
potent greenhouse gas methane from
thawing permafrost... and greenhouse
gas emissions from China and India that
have grown far faster than anticipated...
The need for a revised forecast was
also supported by satellite altimeter data
that tracked rising sea level along the
upper boundary of IPCC model predic-
tions." To read more from Parkinson

FSBPA's Shoreline and CEPD's intent
is solely to provide alternative assess-
ments of sea-level rise. The opinions and
conclusions set forth in both of the arti-
cles cited are solely those of the authors
and do not represent the positions of
the Florida Shore & Beach Preservation
Association nor of the CEPD.
However, in the exclusive opinion of
this author, optimistic sea level rise of
only an inch every eight years or so may
be imperceptible to most, but still provide
to ano ethf i tho er otsn aong u gulf
coastlines. One can read of Captivans
concerns for sea level rise as far back as
the 1970s and 1980s when unbridled
erosion plagued Captiva's shores. Google
research easily verifies the disappear-
ance of islands in areas from the Florida
panhandle to Chesapeake Bay and the
Outer Banks of North Carolina. Such
indications suggest coastal property own-
ers should become more involved and
more motivated to increase our aware-
ness of the potential for future sea level
rise and should be thinking hard about it
now. Planning for greater involvement
and consideration of alternative solutions
makes eminent good sense. Many of
you who have attended CEPD meetings
should be familiar with the following man-

The Everglades Foundation has
long advocated land acquisition in the
Everglades Agricultural Area as the most
cost-effective option available for Florida
to fulfill its commitment to Everglades
restoration. In addition, the foundation
expects the revised proposal for U.S.

acreage to launch promising water quality
projects and allows for the acquisition of
additional land for restoration purposes in
the near future.
The foundation's position is that the
health of the Everglades is not only vital
to the environment, but also to the econ-
omy and quality of life in South Florida.
The organization has assembled a team
of scientists, policy experts and commu-
nications professionals and works with
partners on several fronts to educate,
advocate and litigate -- when necessary
-- to advance Everglades restoration. In
addition, the foundation provides grants

Paris is in French with English subtitles

Great Books (abridged) is a comedy by
Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor. The
show is done using the audience as stu-
dents preparing for graduation, taking
a make-up course for those who didn't
pass their literature course.
The Coach (Jesse St. Louis) bounds on
stage in all too tight shorts and informs
the students (audience) that they better
pay attention because graduation is in
one hour, 45 minutes. Next comes the
professor (Christopher Brent), who is also
the drama teacher, and then racing down
the side of the aisles comes Matt (Jordan
Wilson) who is late because he has been
reading Lord of the Rings. He exclaims,
"Can you believe they wrote a book
based on the movie?
St. Louis is tall and as physically fit
as a man can be. Wilson is of average
height and build and a master of facial .
expressions and body language. Brent is
directed by Rachael Endrizzi and it plays

Society, the event will commemorate the
10th anniversary of Sanibel's annual trib-
ute to poetry.
Ten years ago, poet Marianne
Strickland invited Sanibel s poets to the
art gallery now known as Hirdie Girdie
to celebrate National Poetry Month.
Sanibel PoetlyFest will feature the follow-
ing poets: Jim Brock, Don Brown, Ray
Buck, Carol Drummond, Vince Faraone,
Sandy Greco, Tanya Hochschild, Bob
Maxeiner, Russell Miller, Joe Pacheco,
Katie Pankow, Joyce Rand, Sid Simon,
Lorraine Vail, and special guest and
PoetryFest founder Marianne Strickland.
Members of the public are invited to
participate by reading their own work or
a favorite poem by other poets.
A reception sponsored by tl e library

115 pounds soaking wet, and seems to
float from one part of the stage to the
other. The contrast between the three
is a riot and they know exactly how to
play off one another. They start out with
Dickens and throw in a few soap operas
and TV shows to liven things up.
Parts of Don Quixote are recited in
Spanish by St. Louis and Brent and trans-
lated by Wilson. Homer's Illiad is hardly
recognizable with all the characters that
flit through the scene. War and Peace
becomes involved with Superman and a
few other heroes, along with audience
The second act is non-stop action with
a myriad of characters invading the great

actors can move so fast.
For example, Wilson comes on stage
as Count Dracula, and seconds later
comes back on as the Wolfman. I'd love
to see how the props are arranged off-
stage. Timing is crucial in this comedy
and these three gentleman are experts in
that department. The energy they show
on stage almost wears out the audience.
I must admit the play is silly but in
these capable hands silly works.

policy on Cuba and decide whether it has
helped or hurt.
Recalling the fall of the Berlin Wall and
the collapse of communism in Eastern
Europe, the ambassador said that the

drug-related violence in Mexico is rising
because the cartels are being squeezed,
the rival drug gangs are fighting for
the routes into the U.S., including tun-
nels under the border," the ambassador
The ambassador hailed the North
American Free Trade Agreement
(NAFTA) between the U.S. Mexico and
Canada, as a success with $1 billion daily
in American goods entering Mexico.
Ambassador Sarukhan also discussed
the illegal immigrant issue, estimating that
300,000 to 350,000 illegals enter the
U.S. each year in search of jobs.
"We need to anchor these men and
women in Mexico by generating more
jobs," the ambassador commented.
"In the past 10 years, the pattern has
changed. The workers used to go to
Washington for the apple-picking sea-
son, then to the East Coast as roofers,
and return home for Christmas. Now
the smugglers are charging $3,000 to
$5,000, so more and more workers are
staying put (in the U.S.).
Artura Sarukan (far right), the Mexican ambassador to the United States, was the final
speaker on March 7 for the 2010 season of the FORUM at BIG ARTS lecture series. Grand
Patron sponsors L. Dean Chavis (left), vice president of Northern Trust, and Sue and Tom
Pick welcomed the ambassador to a reception in Phillips Gallery.

Citing an old saying about the drug

in the development of
a more sustainable future. In order to do so, young people need education, political
support, resources, skills, and hope. This volume offers a global perspective on educa-
tion initiatives by and for young people that promote a transition to sustainability. It
includes 38 essays co-authored by 68 contributors from 25 nations, representing a
diversity of geography, gender, and generation.
James Gustave Speth, formerly of the United Nations Development Programme
and Dean Emeritus at Yale University, says of the book, "This important and skillfully-
prepared book comes at a critical time... A great strength of this volume is that it
blends together theoretical and practical insights regarding education for sustainable
development by and for young people. It is written from diverse cultural perspectives
from all world regions. Readers from many fields, especially young people and their
teachers, will find it timely and relevant. I hope that it will inspire the younger genera-
tion to get involved in seeking solutions to the challenges we face.

McLouth captures his sister's perspec-

their family trips to Sanibel Island. "I was
smitten by Southwest Florida as a kid,
recalls the author who begins the story
with the family's return to a dismally
gray and muddy Corfu from an Easter
vacation at beautiful Sanibel Island. His
mother wishes to combat the ugliness
of the unkempt yard by stating, "I want
a Florida room. From the Florida room,

Limited scientific research exists
regarding the impact of snowbirds on
the charitable community, both in terms
of donations and volunteers. However, a
201std dcou tn e m o satons saa-
sonal residents in Florida provide insight
on this very special population.
The seasonal resident is usually afflu-
ent, retired, interested in leisure activities,
and increasingly chooses Florida and
other Sunbelt states as a part-time or full-
time residence. Snowbirds begin as part-
sonally here, the more likely a gift will be
given to support a local charity. Soon,
the seasonal resident becomes a full-time
Floridian, and they have reversed their
travel itinerary to spend the majority of
their time in Florida.
What does this mean for local chari-
ties? Opportunities exist for charities to
cultivate and steward snowbirds.
1) Snowbirds are social. Charities
should emphasize the social, as well as
the practical, benefits of volunteering.
Volunteer opportunities should include
the opportunity for volunteers to talk with
each other and create friendships.
2) Make it easy to give. Did the wom-
en's club take up a collection of blankets
for the non-profit nursery for babies in
intensive care? Did the men's club volun-
teer to paint the house for children with
disabilities? Be grateful and thankful for

3) To establish domicile in Florida,
many legal documents must be changed,
including wills and estate documents. This
is a good time for many donors to recon-
sider how they want to make a lasting
gift, especially if they have built relation-
ships with charities here. Remind your
volunteers and donors about planned

If you visit or live on Sanibel or
Captiva island on a part-time basis, you
probably think of us often when you are
away. Our communities exist year-round,
which means that our needs exist year-
round. Your support and generosity for
island charities is hugely beneficial to the
health of our entire community.

Eventually, they conclude that Florida is
a good place to establish permanent resi-

and detailed process should involve good
legal and financial counsel, since there
are many tax and legal considerations.
From a charitable perspective, snow-
birds generally follow a similar pattern.

Around The Islands With Anne
Whether You Go Fast or slow,
It's Always A Thrill To Be On The Walter
by Anne Mitchell
Unless you own a boat, it's unlikely you have the opportu-
nity to circumnavigate Sanibel and Captiva islands. And
even if you do, it's a long haul in the average boat.
But now you can make the trip in about one and a half hours
aboard the Sanibel Thriller, a beautiful, new, fast, safe, diesel
powered 55-foot motor yacht. It's the best way to complete your
island experience and get the true feeling of our beautiful islands
and their unspoiled beaches.
n This supercatamaran with twin 440 hp Yanmar engines
can hold up to 43 passengers. It's piloted by a USCG-licensed
Merchant Marine officer.
It's a smooth ride, I'm told, and you're unlikely to get wet except on really windy
days. You will cruise the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound, circling
Sanibel and Captiva.
It's a narrated tour and the bonus is that dolphins seem to like the sound of the
engines and will follow in its wake. So take your cameras and sunscreen and get ready
to be thrilled.
Price is $38 for adults, $25 for children age three to 12.
The Sanibel Thriller also offers a trip to Boca Grande, where you can go to the
beaches, go shelling, shopping, have lunch, or explore.
Sanibel and Captiva's only high speed tour boat departs from Sanibel Marina,
home of Gramma Dot's Seaside Saloon, 634 North Yachtsman Drive, Sanibel. Call
472-2328 for reservations or log onto www.sanibelthriller.com for more information.
If you prefer a slower pace and you enjoy kayaking or plan to take it up you
might be in the market for a new kayak. If so, you will want to check out the Heritage
Kayaks at Adventures in Paradise at Port Sanibel Marina, which is offering free
demonstrations on Mondays in March at 10 a.m.
These snappy looking kayaks have stability and friendly features and are lightweight
for their size, which makes them easy to transport. They're available in double and
single set-ups, sit on top or standard seating and are available in red, blue, mango, yel-
low, and khaki. Prices range from $526 to $986 before any discounts.
"Port Sanibel Marina has one of the largest and most expansive marked trails
around and these kayaks move through our backwaters with impressive efficiency and
are a joy to paddle," says Evelyn Stuart, Adventures in Paradise owner.
Take a free demo in these or several other kayak models at Port Sanibel Marina
"We also offer one of the most exciting activities in Southwest Florida kayak fish-
ing at Port Sanibel. Stalk snook, redfish, trout and many other shallow water sport
fish species through our vast maze of mangrove trails where only kayaks can reach.
Our guides are true local fishermen with experience and passion for kayak fishing. We
gladly accommodate any experience level," Stewart said.
Adventures in Paradise/Port Sanibel Marina is at 14341 Port Comfort Road, Fort
Myers, just east of the Sanibel toll booth. Phone 472-8443 or 437-1660 for more
information or log onto www.AdventuresinParadise.com.

a young man s Bekele, Denbele, and Adane
life was changed
-how he was given health, and hope when he was about Mohammed's age.
Bekele is the tall boy, on the left, in the photograph. To his left is his sister, Denbele,
andyougerbrother, Adane. Today's Bekele is tall, strong, the best football (soccer)

Bekele's family lives in the mountains, above where Project Mercy is situated. The
life is harsh, unyielding as the mountains themselves. Farming plots are small and
rocky. Yields are low. Temperatures get colder the higher in elevation that one lives,
and the huts leak rainwater. Bekele spent his younger years crawling around, extreme-

ly weak. By the grace of God, he was accepted into kindergarten at Project Mercy.
There is a lottery system, based on a percentage of students from each of the local vil-
lages. Bekele won this big prize.
But he couldn't walk or get to school. What good was winning the lottery?
However, God had set things in motion. His older sister, Denbele, began carrying him
back and forth to school each day. This caught the attention of the project founders,
Marta and Deme. Marta had Bekele looked at by a doctor, and it was believed that
poor nutrition was the root cause of his weakness, and that lack of milk had hurt the
growth and strength of his bones.
Bekele was given milk. Eventually he, his brother and sister, became "house kids,"
living in a barn-like building with the children of Project Mercy workers. His father was
given a job in the compound. By the time I arrived in Yetebon, Bekele was a strapping
8th grade student a guy who could run the field all day, and even knew how to pass
the ball, be it a soccer ball with his feet, or a basketball with his hands!
Bekele finished 10th grade. During his school days, he attended church, and gave
his life to Christ. His body was healed, and he was blessed physically. And he knew
who was the ultimate provider, his Heavenly Father. Not a top student, he did not pass
the test for college preparatory after 10th grade. But, he scored high enough to get
into nursing school. Next year, he'll graduate. He will return to the mountainous coun-
tryside to be a community health care worker, helping his people physically, but also
sharing his own story of hope, peace, and eternal life found through Jesus Christ.
Mohammed a street kid by no choice of his own deserves this chance, as do
other children, boys and girls, who live on the streets of dangerous cities in Ethiopia.

Talkes Over As Manager Of The

batting titles, gold gloves and most valuable player.
That Mauer, of course, is the Minnesota Twins prized catch-
er, Joe Mauer, who many believe is the most talented and excit-
ing player in the game today a player who soon will become
the highest paid catcher in the history of baseball.
But today we're going to tell you about another Mauer who
.soon will be riding busses on long treks with young players earn-
Sing a few hundred dollars a month as members of the Fort Myers
Class A Miracle baseball team.
Jake Mauer, 32, is six years older than his famous brother, but
in his own right is fast becoming an important part of the Minnesota Twins baseball
organization. This season he will take over the managerial helm of the Miracle after
two successful years as manager of the rookie-level Gulf Coast Twins where he com-
piled an impressive 69-42 record.
Poised, articulate and obviously baseball smart, he jumped from a rookie league
manager's job to high Class A, bypassing low Class A which would have been the next
logical stop as manager.
As Minor League youngsters gathered for spring training this week at the sprawling
Lee County Sports Complex, we talked with Mauer about his new responsibilities as
Miracle manager. He replaces Jeff Smith who moved up to manage Double A New
Britain, Connecticut, after taking the
Miracle to post-season play both years
by winning division titles in the tough
Florida State League.
Mauer is no stranger to the FSL or
the Miracle as he played here in both
2003 and 2005 during his five-year
Minor League career with the Twins.
"I'm excited about the opportunity.
It's a big challenge. My job is to make
these players better. And once the ros-
ter is set, I will have most of them with
me for the entire season."
Just as Minor Leaguers strive to /
some day make it to the big leagues,
Jake Mauer left little doubt that he has
the same ambition as a coach or man-
ager. He spoke of the Twins new sta-
dium, Target Field, which opens next
month -- a sparkling outdoor stadium
where someday he hopes to wear a

millions on the baseball field, but graces
the covers of magazine, endorses products and is hounded for autographs, interviews
and TV appearances.
"There's no jeolousy. "We're close. I'm proud of Joe," he said.
In fact, once the school year is completed, his wife Rachel, a school teacher in he
Minneapolis area, and their 14-month-old daughter Lauren will live with brother Joe in
his Fort Myers home.
When Jake Mauer's Minor League playing days ended due to injury, there was
a coaching opportunity at the rookie level Gulf Coast Twins, thus beginning a new
career teaching very young players the nuances of professional baseball. Obiously, the
Twins' organization quickly recognized his instructional abilities by promoting him to
The life of a Minor League manager is far different from the life of a Major League
player, coach or manager. There are no charter flights between cities, no fancy hotels
or lavish meals. It's often late-night bus rides and midnight snacks.
Smiling, Jake said, "Florida State League travel isn't too bad. The furthest is
Daytona, about eight hours away.
In the off-season, Jake joins a third Mauer brother, Bill, who also played in the
Twins Minor League system for three years, who now owns a Chevrolet dealership in
the Minneapolis area. "I'm sort of the assistant to the owner," he said.
The long-running success of the Minnesota Twins has been the result of the devel-
opment of Minor League players nearly all of whom played here at one time for the
Miracle. Jake Mauer's challenge is to continue that success.

The Bike Rodeo will be held
Saturday, March 20 at The
Sanibel School pavilion. Attendees
can come by anytime between 10 a.m.
and 3 p.m. to participate. Admission is
free to all, however a signed parent per-
mission slip is required for children.
Children will be able to learn about
and practice safe cycling skills. The rodeo
includes a bike safety inspection and a
series of supervised skills training exer-
cises directly related to everyday cycling
situations. Participants will practice start-
ing and stopping, learn how to safely
exit a driveway, how to look for traffic,
negotiate an intersection and avoid com-
mon road hazards, all under the watchful
eye of adult instructors. Kids of all ages
Participants can bring their own
bicycle and helmet or use the equipment
provided. In addition to learning safe bik-
ing skills, they will have a chance to try
out larger size bikes to find see if they are
ready for upsizing their ride.
Parents can have fun too. Those who
have not been on a bike for a while can
try out various adult size bikes, including
recumbents and the increasingly popular
adult trikes. And adults can take the bike
safety quiz to test their knowledge of the
"rules of the road.
All participants will receive safety-
related giveaway items. Hot dogs and
ice cream, provided by Bailey s General
Store, will be served to those who com-
plete the activities.
The organizations sponsoring and
staffing the event are: The Kiwanis Club
of Sanibel-Captiva, the Sanibel Bicycle
Club, Billy's Bike Shop and Billy's
From page 17B
The facility has four lighted fields with
spectator seating that includes a covered
grandstand on the main field. The sta-
dium also is known as the Park T. Pigott
Memorial Stadium, named for the family
that donated the land in the 1920s.
The historic Tery Park was once
home to Major League Baseball spring
training, hosting the Philadelphia
Athletics, Cleveland Indians, Pittsburgh
Pirates and Kansas City Royals. It saw
baseball greats such as Babe Ruth, Ty
Cobb, Roberto Clemente, Jimmy Foxx,
Bob Feller, Tris Speaker and George
Brett to name a few.
The Gene Cusic Collegiate Classic is
in its 20th year at the park, with many
teams such as St. Lawrence University
and University of Scranton competing
in every year since its inception. "The
Gene Cusic is a fiercely competitive
college baseball tournament featuring
many great rivalries such as U.S. Coast
Guard Academy vs. the U.S. Merchant

Peyton, Gary, Maxine, Norma and Jerry Dinnan
by Di Saggau
The third annual Night for Life was
15 at the Broadway Palm Dinner
Theatre. Sponsored by Organ Transplant
Recipients of Southwest Florida, the
evening included a celebration of life for
Jerry Dinnan, who received a heart trans-
plant in 1999. Jerry died July 30, 2009.
Many of his family members were there
to remember his life well lived. Mike Terry
called Jerry a great man who always had
a smile on his face, someone who always
cared about others rather than himself.
Betsy Edwards of LifeLink of Southwest
Florida and George Kearns with Organ
Transplant Recipients of Southwest Florida,
gave moving tributes to their friend talking
about evengthing he accomplished during craig Bamberg and Jeanne Rohland
A silent auction and a live auction raised
funds to benefit transplant recipients. Items ranged from an NFL signed football by
Terell Owens, to a signed book, Waterbirds by the late Ted Cross, and an original play
bill from the Odd Couple signed by Neil Simon. Auctioner Max McAninch, a heart
transplant recipient, led the audience as they placed their bids.
Entertainment included BJ Odom and Joey Evans Comedy and Magician Show,
and Barry Newman's Memories of Gold Show.M

While our archi-
tects and builders
.... provide us these
beautiful design ele-
ments for our year
we are still faced with the decorating
challenges they present: How do we fill
all that empty space above our heads,
and how do we treat those floor-to-
You can imagine what we saw when
we first walked into this enormous room.
There was nothing to work with but the
bare wood floors, the fireplace, the built-
ins, and a beautiful view. All we could see
was rectangles and more rectangles in
the windows, in the built-ins, in the fire-
To offset the boxy feeling of the
architecture, the addition of curvilinear
furnishings and accessories became the
underlying plan. The sexy curvaceous
sofa, the circular accessories and the
round drapery hardware all worked magic
towards softening the hard right angles of
Twenty-foot ceilings present a chal-
lenge of their own. Left undecorated,
they can cause the room's inhabitants to
feel insignificant in the setting. It is always
necessary to keep scale in mind when
selecting the accessories for a room of
this volume. A lot of small items would
work against the drama of the ceilings
and windows, and would probably fail to
hold their own against the overall size of
the room. This room had to have over-
sized and curve-shaped furnishings for the
balance, scale and harmony to be satisfy-
ing. The walls and windows were treated
all the way to the ceiling to avoid that
feeling of "nothingness" above you. The
large, dark ceiling fan played its part in
bringing down that ceiling to a comfort-
The high ceilings of this room, com-
bined with all the glass and stone, also
caused an echo effect that made conver-
sation less than pleasing. We used luxuri-
ous textiles, wood, plants, books, and a
heavily textured area rug all excellent
sound absorbing materials to tame the
echo problems. Even the grass woven
into the fan blades again plays its part to
make the acoustics more pleasing.
And finally, the sculptural effects of
the d&cor, including the lamp base and
the metal sculpture, gave the eye many
places to land rather than to be over-
whelmed by all the rectangles we faced at
the beginning of this project.

.ch, t's all finally com-plne etn
.. ing true, you've
" -sively, picking out
every little aspect of
your dream home,
From the tile in the
.I i grand entryway to
'the color of the
paint in the formal
dining room. You ve
been involved every step of the way,
giving your input on every aesthetic
nook and cranny of this your dream
There is one aspect of your new home
that you most likely were never consulted
about. This is your home comfort system.
It always amazes me that here you have
a very high end home being built with the
best of everything. This usually applies
only to things that you can see. When it
comes to your home comfort system I
have seen multi million dollar homes with
some of the cheapest equipment on the
market. This is often a mistake, contrary
to popular belief that all heating/cooling
systems are created equal not by a long
shot. There are many things to consider:
all systems don t have the same decibel
ratings, all systems don t last the same
amount of time, all systems don t dehu-
midify or cool at the same rate and all
systems don t cost the same to operate.
As you may have guessed the cheap
builders grade is not the quietest, most
effective or the most efficient. The
reasons that these cheap systems are
allowed to be put in to new homes is
twofold, one being price. If the builder
can put in the cheaper equipment and
have a larger profit margin, he is ahead
of the game. The second reason is mis-
information. If the builder believes that
there is no difference between Brand X
and Brand Y, then why should he pay for
the more expensive brand? Please don t
get me wrong, there are plenty of new
homes that are having top notch equip-
ment installed. There are also builders
out there who really know their stuff, and
go to great lengths to provide their client
with the best option, and do understand
the value of great equipment. And as a
quick side note, we have the great fortune
this day and age of instant information,
options aren t given and we still see the
cheap stuff going in. So all you builders
out !here h din' giv oyosurdcousttom rs
me saying I wrote bad things about you.
The choice is yours.
As always, thank you for reading and
keep cool. Regards, Blyan

Tim Ficker, executive director at
Cypress Cove, could not have been more
touched at the outpouring of love and
compassion from the residents and staff.
"I am just so proud to be affiliated with
such a compassionate and generous com-
munity as we have here at Cypress Cove.
We are all praying for the families of our
employees that they will recover from this
tragedy," he said.M

wait staff at Cypress Cove, all had
one thought in mind to help the
Haitian relief effort. In a residents' town
hall meeting, a check was presented to
The Salvation Army in the amount of
$17,865 to assist with needs on the
Tea hu k tes efor knIc n ed residents,
employees and management. About
50 of the Cypress Cove employees
are Haitian and most of them have
families that were affected by the quake.
The "family" atmosphere that exists at
Cypress Cove brought action to raise
funds to help in the relief effort.
"I am totally awestruck by the generos-
ity of everyone here at Cypress Cove,
stated Major Ann Penhale, corps officer
for Lee, Hendry and Glades counties. "It
is because of these great people that we
will continue to help rebuild the lives of
the Haitian people. We will continue the
work of community development proj-

PETA's Urges Animal Lovers
To Leave Pets Home
Spot public service'sToHo o
ring this adorable animated
pup, reminds people about
the danger of leaving their
dogs in hot cars even for
just a few minutes and
urges everyone to leave
their canine companions
safe at home on warm IC 1
days. 'i L
Hot weather is often
deadly for children and
animals, who are unable to
protect themselves when .
exposed to rising tempera-
tures. This important mes-
sage comes on the heels of
news that an 18-month-old
Fort Myers girl died after
being left alone in a car
when the temperature out-
side was only 71 degrees.
When left in a hot
vehicle, a child's body tem-
perature can increase three
to five times faster than an
adult's, and because dogs
can't perspire and can only Alhough some pets are like children, their body tempera-
cool themselves by panting, ture increases dramatically while in a car with its windows
they can succumb to heat- rolled up
stroke in just 15 minutes
and suffer brain damage or
death as a result. PETA receives alarming reports about dogs who succumb to heat-
stroke within minutes when owners are delayed in shopping malls and fail to realize
how little time it takes for a car's interior to heat up. On a 78-degree day, the temper-
ature inside a car can climb to 97 degrees in just 10 minutes. For more information,

Pets Of The W~eek
Tanya ID# 464077
Princess ID# 461464
H i, my name is Tanya and I'ma one-year-old female Lab mix. I'm certainly not Irish, but I'm
Looking for a little luck of the Irish. Until recently things haven t gone so well for me in this
1 world. I was wandering around a neighborhood when an officer found me. I was picked up
and brought to the shelter, and I was so scared. He thinks I was abandoned, but that doesn t depress
me because I know I could have a bright future with you. I'ma young dog that s friendly, loves to
play, and best of all, I'm smart. I know almost all the basic commands, and I can learn anything you
would like to teach me. Oh, and I'm really cute, so I've got that going for me too. My adoption fee
is $30 and I just know it will be money well spent. Come and meet me as soon as you can. I'm so
excited to meet you!
Hi, my name is Princess. I am a three-year-old female brown tiger kitty. Everyone from the veteri-
narian to the volunteers here at the shelter are enamored with my loving personality. I love to snuggle
and be petted. I would be a great companion and fit right in to most any family since I get along with
everybody! No worries, I won t scratch your furniture, shred your drapes, or eat your carpet. I'ma well
mannered little lady. My adoption fee is $30 that s with a savings of $20 off the regular adoption fee
of $50 during March s Find Your Lucky Charm adoption special.
Are you feeling lucky? You can find more than a pot of gold at Lee County Domestic Animal
Services this March. In fact, you could find your next best friend, unconditional love, or a companion for
life. All month long adopters will receive $20 off the regular adoption fee for all pets plus a complimen-
tary green T-shirt. The reduced adoption fee will still include the complete package of services.
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 number. The Web site
updates every hour so you will be able to see if these or any other pets are still available.
The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday 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 treatment, 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 $500.0
