Sanibel Historical Museum And Village
Do cent Profile: John Le fever
by Ray Buck

John Lefever, like many of the
Historical Museum and Village,
likes the Burnap Cottage best in
"sharing Sanibel s short but interest-
ing history with island visitors and
residents. g
"This former fishing camp reminds
me of the determination and resource-
fulness of the residents of the island,"
Lefever says, "especially after their
farming-based economy was destroyed
overnight by a devastating tidal wave
hurricane in 1926.
The Burnap Cottage, unlike the
Bailey Packing House, Store and _,...,
Ferry dock, survived that great blow
and others before and after as well.
"Many islanders found it necessary to
leave for the mainland," Lefever said, John Lefever in front of the Burnap Cottage
"and those who chose to stay had to
find new sources in income quickly."
The business of guiding those who wanted to take advantage of Sanibel s location
for sport fishing, as well as commercial fishing, became more important. "I think the
Burnap Cottage, formerly used by a fishing guide to house customers, represents the
spirit of the islanders who were forced to adapt to a new economy that didn t include
farming," Lefever said.
The collection of photographs of the fish catches of those days on display at the
Burnap Cottage is ample evidence of their success at using the sea s resources to their
advantage. Also in the cottage is an introduction to two of the more colorful fishing
guides of that period. Sam and Esperanza Woodring. Their life story is in many ways
the stony of Sanibel itself.
Lefever and his wife Nancy have been visiting Sanibel for about 20 years. He
retired in 2004 from a career in medical sales in Virginia Beach, Virginia. "After tray-
eling on our boat for three years," he said, "we decided to make Sanibel our home.


He has been a docent at the Historical Museum and Village for two years and is
also a volunteer at the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce.M

'Bad Blood'

Behind Council I
COmm'Iss S Q

by Anne Mitchell
Feelings are still running high over
the issue of the hour-long presen-
tation made by a local contractor
during the public comment period at a
meeting of Sanibel's Land Development
Review Committee two weeks ago.
Some people believe such a presenta-
tion should have been on the agenda so
that the public could have input.
Planning commissioners and several
members of the city council were not
ready to let it drop, continuing to argue
for one side or the other during Tuesday's
commission meeting. The seven planning
commissioners sit as the review commit-
tee.
Bad feelings dating back to the city
council's rejection of the 18-month-
long efforts of the planning commission
to draft changes to section 86-43 of
the land development code (relating to
large homes) may be behind this latest
skirmish, which began last week when
Councilman Peter Pappas criticized the
chairman, Mike Valiquette, over what he
called "a trust issue.
theci MavorbK vin Ruane sihd, "It
to rise above this and not get into per-
sonal attacks. We personally appointed all
of you, so it is not a matter of trust.
Valiquette started off Tuesday's meet-
ing with a statement about why he
allowed Mark Anderson, flanked by a
consultant, Bruce Rogers, and two other
experts, to give a Power Point presenta-
tion urging the city to allow an extra five
percent land coverage for energy-saving
or "green" developments.
Valiquette said, "I don t know where
citizens should start a code amendment


requeet te epti b acopd review con s
council meeting "made a number of
accusations." He said, "I am not going to
take insults and accusations from council
members on the use or non-use of the
time clock." Neither the commission nor
the code committee has a time limit on
public comment, though the city council
allows three minutes.
Commissioner Tom Krekel says he
wants to be able "to bring somebody in I
would like to hear, too."
Commissioner Chuck Ketteman said
he was reluctant to take any step that
would limit public comment.
Pappas said by allowing that forum to
Anderson, the commissioners were actu-
ally denying the public's right to comment
by not having the presentation on the
agenda. "Those builders can build green
whenever they want. They don t need
more (coverage). They want more."
Mayor Mick Denham said in
Valiquette's situation, once he saw the
extent of the presentation he would have
recommended bringing the matter up at
the next commission or code review com-
mittee and put it on the agenda.0

Sanibel Mayor
Withdraws

COmmission Bid
by Anne Mitchell

he ever-growing list of people
Commissioner Bob Janes briefly
included Sanibel Mayor Mick Denham.
But Denham changed his mind and has
since withdrawn his name.
He said Tuesday that the prospect of
having to campaign in the Republican
primary in August was not feasible.

Sandy Ham with Flat Stanley
Fat Stanley gets an introduction to the Early Literacy Station in the Children's
Area of the Sanibel Public Library from Tech Services Supervisor Sandy Ham.
Flat Stanley is visiting Sanibel from the Terrace Elementary School in Des
Plaines, mlinois.M


ity legislation has given him exposure in
Lee County and beyond.
Two other Sanibel city councilmen,
Vice Mayor Kevin Ruane and Jim
Jennings have ruled out a bid for the
appointment, which would initially be
made by Gov. Charlie Crist to cover the
period until the November election.
Ruane said a number of people have
urged him to run "but it's just not appro-
priate at this time and not something that
was right for my family.
"We still have an awful lot of things to
finish on Sanibel. Let me finish the job I
was elected to do," Ruane added.


Jennings said he "probably could have
applied... people know me enough but
my first love is with the City of Sanibel."
He acknowledged that it would be good
for Sanibel to have a representative on
the county commission and that most of
the applicants are from Cape Coral and
even south Fort Myers.
The time frame of the primary is an
obstacle for some. "It is a county-wide
race and to gear up for the August run
would be very time consuming. They
would have to raise at least thirty grand
and really need $60,000," Jennings
added.M

S anibel Alliance for Renewable

~Sanibel Spring Sunshine Swap on
Saturday, April 10 from 12 to 3 p.m.
at Bailey's Center. The swap, a popular
type of event, will offer Sanibel residents
and guests a chance to share household
items that are no longer needed. Spring
cleaning often reveals such items.
"The idea of the swap is to bring any-
thing that you no longer need or want
and would like to see go to someone who
would find it useful: and browse the items
that others have brought to find items
that might be useful to you" said Kathy
McCabe, SARR chair. "All are welcome
to come and take a look, even if you
don't have anything to bring or don't
plan on taking anything home.

care for more people than ever before
through a growing number of programs,
we remain focused on the needs and the
choices of each person. Every program,
every service we provide, everything we
do at Hope has a common focus: quality
of life. Each member of our Care Team
endeavors to answer one all important
question everyday, 'What more can I do
to help the person in my care have a bet-
ter day?
As anyone who has used Hope
Hospice/Hope HealthCare Semvices
knows, this organization is remarkable.
The loving care given to each individual
in need of their services is beyond expec-
tations. If you would like to volunteer

and helping with fundraisers, community
activities, special events, and working at
the Hope Chest resale store.

Intdysworld we're
I oa'faced with
many challeng-
es, including ter-
rorism and war. J li
Many people
have found that r
prayer is a suc-
cessful starting
point to solving
these chal-
lenges. National -
speaker, Ryder Ryder Stevens
Stevens says,
"Prayer is a
practical, effective, reliable system of
healing. In my experience the applica-
tion of God's law reveals infinite grace
and blessing which heals, brings free-
dom, and transforms."
Stevens, a full-time prayer-based
healer using the Christian Science system
of healing, will present a talk titled Peace
and Reconciliation on Thursday, April
1, at 7:30 p.m. at the Sanibel Public
Library.
During his talk, Stevens references the
original sourcebook on Christian healing,
the Bible, along with Science and Health
with Key to the Scriptures by Mary
Baker Eddy, a book of universal ideas on
practical spirituality. Speaking from his
own experience, Stevens helps the audi-
ence discover that prayer is a practical,
effective means of conquering fear and
resolving conflict individually and in the
world. He explores universal spiritual laws
you can rely on for unity and healing.
Stevens, a member of the Christian
Science Board of Lectureship, has a
masters of divinity degree from Boston
University with additional doctoral studies
from Harvard Divinity School. In his work
as an army chaplain he worked with
the military organizations of Sub-Sahara
Africa and played a part in founding a
humanitarian/peace keeping force for
that region with religious considerations
recognized as individual rights."

pelican sus-
~ C pended from
a tree over water
,beside Middle Gulf
Drive on Sanibel
was very lucky that
Shis finder was a
Mountain climber
who has scaled 35
peaks in Colorado
soaring over 14,000 feet.
Greg Jennings, who lives in Sea Pines
with his wife Linda, made one of the
most daring rescues of the year when
he scrambled up an Australian pine and
sawed off a branch from which the peli-
can dangled 30 feet above the water, to
save the bird from certain death.
Linda Jennings had seen the pelican
trapped in fishing line and hanging from
the pine on March 2. She called CROW
and Cat Turner and Joe Stahl arrived at
the scene.
Greg Jennings had just arrived home
and volunteered to go up the tree, which
veered out over the water. Stahl boarded
a neighbor s boat and waited below the
pelican.
It took some doing to finally get the
bird released.


Jennings spent over 30
minutes trying to saw down
the branch without making
any progress on the hard pine.
Turner and Stahl returned to
CROW to get a better saw.
This time the work went
more quickly and Jennings i
was able to cut off the branch
in less than 10 minutes. Stahl
was there to scoop up the
pelican and haul him into the
boat.
"The bird had no fight, he
was absolutely exhausted," said .
Turner.
"It was neat the way it
all worked out, it was lucky
he didn t drown or break his
neck," said Jennings. "It was
fulfilling (to save him).
The juvenile pelican was in
dire condition as he arrived at
the clinic.
"He was cold, wet and
exhausted," said Dr. PJ
Deitschel. "The line had
wrapped around his radius and
ulna and there was trauma to
the soft tissue around his left
wing and right leg. The hook
had lodged under his jaw. He
must have been struggling Bonp
quite a while.
Staff put him in a cage
with a heat lamp after administering pain
meds, vitamins, anti-oxidants, Chinese
herbs, and subcutaneous fluids.
"He was quite content to sleep all day
and into the evening," said Dr. PJ.


"You never want to see the tissue
change color," said Dr. PJ. "It was great
that he was still alive, but it was going
to be a challenge to treat his soft tissue
trauma. We decided to add antibiotics as
his wounds looked worse.
The bird ate a small herring for break-
fast.
At first his symptoms continued to
deteriorate. He became more lame and
his wing drooped.
Yet he ate well and maintained a
scrappy attitude. "He is just bossy, even
with the adult pelicans, which is unusual,"
said Dr. PJ.
CROW staff fashioned a booty for his
foot, which began to knuckle due to the
leg trauma. They removed it for his baths
and when he walked around the clinic
with the other pelicans, but kept it on for
the night. They gave him massage treat-
ments to reduce the pain and loosen his
muscles.
The bird is making flapping motions
and is anxious to go outside. He will stay
in ICU a little bit longer as staff manages
the treatment of his leg, but he is now
out of danger and on his way to recovery.
"It' sa good case," said Dr. PJ. "It s
incredible he s alive.

already emerging. Staff noted bmuising

Award-winning filmmaker Rusty Farst invited 13 former
Sanibel mayors to gather at The Community House
on March 22 to talk about the 1974 incorporation of
Sanibel.
The distinguished group included Sanibel's first mayor Porter
Goss, who went on to become CIA Director under President
Bush, island icon Francis Bailey, and current mayor Mick
Denham. Their comments served as kick-off to the production of
Sanibel Inc., a documentary that will capture the events leading
up to the historic vote for incorporation on November 5, 1973.
The mayors were delighted to get together for the discussion
of Sanibel history, as many noted in their remarks; it was the first Nola Theiss, Steve
time so many had been together in one place.
"There was truly a vision," said Goss. "The Sanibel Plan is much discussed around
the country. It is a unique story, a wonderful story about democracy.
Goss said the principles behind the Sanibel Plan have been tested in courtrooms
around the U.S., and have remained intact. He saluted the community spirit and the
effort of a large group of islanders to bring incorporation to pass.

More Consistent

FIShing Is Finally Here
by Capt. Matt Mitchell

/ ~out on the water have sure gotten a lot more consistent.
Going back to the same areas several days in a row and
catching fish, what a concept! Most of our winter was so chilly
with cold front after cold front, you could just not do this, and
fishing is all about patterns. The only thing we are missing out
2-J there is baitfish which should come back any time time now as
,the water slowly warms.
Trout and redfish are still my main targets. This week I saw
some larger redfish around and even caught a few over the slot.
Most of them remain the rat reds of winter but more and more
slot size fish and better are appearing.
The outside shorelines of the "Ding" Darling Refuge are holding redfish and with
the water so clear they are easy to spot, just not quite so easy to catch. Anchoring way
out from where I had seen the reds working in previous days and making long casts
with live shrimp caught some of the bigger ones of the week. Usually this time of year
I do really well inside the refuge fishing all the feeder creeks, but this year the fish don't
seem to be in there. I think the lack of bait has the reds bunched up on the outside
mangrove shorelines where food is more plentiful.
On higher tides I have been working these outside shorelines on the trolling motor
while throwing soft plastic baits. Any place where the bottom has some oyster shell
mixed in with it and it's not just grass seems to be where the redfish are gathering. For
the most part they have been hanging out with the sheepshead. Live shrimp still is the
bait of choice but if you're looking for that one quality fish and need to cover some
ground to find it, soft plastics have been the way.

Smaller sandholes
from Flamingo Bay to

great places to drift fish
for trout with 90 per-

As the water tem-

warming and it gets
closer and closer to the i
magic temperature of
70 degrees, Spanish Tom Desantos with a big seatrout
mackerel have been
showing up in the sound. There have not been any huge numbers of them yet but
expect to catch a few while trout fishing on the flats. Big schools of ladyfish are already
here and they are so thick it's hard to catch anything else when they show up. On
one trip this week, almost every spot we fished was just loaded with ladyfish. Sure they
are fun to catch but they get old after a while and it's hard to keep a bait in the water
without catching one or having one steal your bait.
It's really great to see our fishing start to finally pick up again. This winter was far
from our usual winter time fishing and consistently catching quality fish was tougher
than I can ever remember while guiding over the last 10-plus years. Spring is finally
here and things are only going to get better with every warm day bringing more and
more life back into our waters.

more than 25 years. He now! lives in St. James City and has woorked as a back coun-
try fishing guide for more than 10 years. If you have comments or questions email

Shell Club Meeting To Feature
Images Of Micronesia Coral Reef
The Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club will hold its final monthly meeting of the season
on Sunday, March 28 at 2 p.m. at The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum. The
museum is located at 3075 Sanibel-Captiva Road.
With greatly appreciated help from Anne Joffe, past Shell Club president and cur-
rent shell chairmen, Jeff Oths, club vice president, announced that James M. Wedge
will make a presentation entitled Micronesia, Life on a Coral Reef. The discussion will
include images of the various forms of marine life found around a coral reef in the
tropical Pacific. The show will include many photos of live shells as well as other color-
ful fish and invertebrate life.
Wedge's interest in nature photography began as a SCUBA diver while living
with his family in the Marshall Islands where he worked as an engineer on U.S.
Government defense projects.
He spent 12 years photographing the various fish, corals and invertebrate life of
the coral reefs of the Pacific. After returning to the U.S., he continued his focus on
nature by photographing wildflowers, butterflies, amphibians and birds. Over the years
he has given slide presentations to various SCUBA clubs, malacological groups, nature
clubs and natural science groups. In addition, he has frequently given presentations to
camera clubs as well as acting as a judge for many photographic competitions. His bird
images are currently marketed by the Academy of Science in Philadelphia.
Wedge's photographic credits include a 5 Star rating in the Nature Division of the
Photographic Society of America (PSA) with over 140 nature photos accepted for dis-
play in the international photography salons. Wedge has also been published in several
magazines such as Oceans, Sea Frontiers, Smithsonian, and National Wildlife.
There is no charge to attend the meeting and the general public is welcome. The
Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club will reconvene its monthly meetings in October.0

was your boat, what would you
do? The fire looks very advanced,
it is the wrong kind of fuel to fight with
water, and your options are all bad. Do
you get burned or jump overboard.? The
best solution; have the proper fire fighting
equipment on board and properly main-
tain your boat. In other words, don't have
a fire on your boat, or if by chance you
do, be able to put it out.
The Sanibel-Captiva Sail and Power
Squadron offers free vessel safety checks.
They will determine if you have the
minimum required safety equipment. Yes,
they check that you have the proper fire
extinguishers in a size and condition to
fight wood, electric, or fuel fires. They
check other fire issues such as flame
arrestors and clean bilges.
For safety, with ownership, your boat
should also have life preservers, a sound
device, running lights, a first aid kit,
and much more. The examiner, beyond
checking minumum requirements, will dis-
cuss your use of the boat and may recom-
mend some additional safety equipment.
Anything in need of repair or mainte-
nance will be called to your attention.
If you pass the examination you
receive a sticker for your port window.
Other boaters and law enforcement will
know that you made an effort to be a
responsible boater. A report is not sent
to anyone even if safety issues are found

Beach Sunflower


As beach sunflower's
(Helianthus debilis)
name suggests, its
ideal habitat is the seaside,
where it's valuable in sta-
bilizing dunes.
However, this abun-
dantly flowering plant has
much to offer any well-
drained sandy landscape,
coastal or not. :- .i_
A member of the aster ~ -
or daisy family, beach sun-
flower is a multi-branched,
sprawling perennial that *
produces abundant flowers
all year in southern Florida. .
Pest-resistance and high
salt- and drought-tolerance
render it low maintenance.
In fact, it suffers if over-
watered or planted in soil
that's too rich.
The oily seeds provide
food fr birs andother Bright flowers attract a variety of butterflies Becsu
small animals, and the flower as c
bright yellow flowers attract
a variety of butterflies.
The blooms are fairly large about three inches across and have 10 to 20 pale
yellow rays surrounding a brown or purplish center.
The coarse heart-shaped leaves are dark green and lobed.
Beach sunflower typically grows to about two feet in height and spreads to a width
of three to four feet.
Also called dune or cucumberleaf sunflower, this excellent re-seeder spreads exuber-
antly. Use it as a fast-growing dense groundcover or in a mass planting.


tower is nard to beat for low maintenance. Use mhis pest-resistant, highly arought-tolerant
a groundcover or in a mass planting.

The trailing stems make an attractive cascade of foliage on a wall.
Put this robust wildflower in a well-drained sunny spot and enjoy the butterflies.

COMMUNITY BASED OYSTER
RESTORATION EFFORT ON SANIBEL
Every Tuesday in March the Sanibel-Captive Conservation Foundation (SCCF) will be moving
Bagged Oyster Shell to Clam Bayou Habitat from 8am-Noon at Bowman's Beach on Sanibel Island
WHY BAG AND DEPLOY SHELL IN CLAM BAYOU?
Oysters form living reefs that provide a nursery habitat for adult and juvenile fishes. shrimp and crabs, as well as feeding
sites for many larger animals (fishes, birds. reptiles mammals).0Oysters also filter significant volumes of water improving
water clarity, sta bilize sediment a nd shorelines AdulIt oysters release mil lions of fertilized eggs; May to October which then
develop in our waters over 2-3 weeks They then must attach (now called'spat's to a hard substrate;ideally other oysters)
or they die By building reefs in the spring we are providing critical settling material to continue the cycle.Restoration of
oyster and mangrove habitats will benefit many important fish species. Including; Snook, gray snapper, mullet, spotted
sea-trout, red drum, tarpon, wrath g rouper and nu merous ecolog icalIly-importa nt invertebrates that support the fishery
resources. Enhanced habitats will provide feeding areas for endangered species such as wood storks, piping plovers. Lease
terns, snowy plovers, Florida manatees and small-tooth sa wish.
Clam Bayou was once connected to the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound Storms and other human activities (road
construct on) isolated it from the above resulting in declining mangrove, sea-grass and oyster habitats. In 2006, The City
of Sanibel ,with numerous funding partners began a restoration effort installing box culverts, reconnecting it with Pine
Island Sound. The SCCF Marine Lab is continuing this effort having received 2009-11 funding from NOAA, TNC and other
partners such as the City of Sanibel.

survived to leave the nest. That was the
first time since 2003 the number topped 9''

The keynote speaker will be Marti
Daltry of North Fort Myers, a proponent of improved water quality. Daltry, an organiz-
er for the Fort Myers office of The Sierra Club, will discuss red tide, red drift algae and
other harmful algal blooms. She will talk about their impact on our health, economy

caused by excessive nutrient runoff into our waters.

There were no roads or railroads, but
lots of sea commerce. Thus the light-
house on Ybel Point. The actual light was
made in the northeast and was shipped
here. Unfortunately the ship carrying the
light went aground and sank in the shoals
to the south of Point Ybel. Therefore,
Sanibel's light was reclaimed from the
gulf.
Mention was made of the Sarasota
Assassination Association. Probably it was
wise that this subject was not pursued in
more detail as we would not care to give
Sarasota a black mark.
The Spanish-Cubar war went on
for about 30 years. Cuba s "fire water
rum" was smuggled in and arms were
smuggled out to Cuba. The U.S. had one
revenue cutter in all these waters. Spain
stepped in to control this trade which was
not a good arrangement.
Tarpon fishing became a large area
drawing card with the wealthy and
became so significant that the use of
currency then became common. At this
time Thomas Edison arrived as a seasonal
resident and his proclivities brought many
scientists. Fort Myers became a "silicon"
valley of it s time.
We were fortunate to sit at the dinner
table with Macomber. He mentioned that
he had been taking saber dueling lessons
so that he can more accurately reflect a
duel that will occur in his next novel. With
eight at the table we had two other duel-
ists. No, it was not planned.M

In its seventh year, the project involves loading fossil oyster shells into wire mesh
bags, transporting them and placing them in strategic points in the estuaries that
attract natural oyster spat (larvae) and eventually form reefs.

place immediately following the final segment of the tour on March 13. Thanks to
everyone who purchased tickets.

is a hoot each time he comes on stage completely inebriated. In one scene he raids
the fridge and stuffs a six-pack of beer in his undershirt and a few in his pockets. Amy
Marie McCleary plays Kate, Jon's girlfriend, or is she Leslie's? It's a toss-up.
Donna Schulte plays Jon's mother, and she too takes to the sauce as she tries to
piece together whether or not her son is married, and to whom. Rounding out the
cast is Rachael Endrizzi as Connie, Leslie's on-again off-again girlfriend, and Rich
Sebastian as a justice of the peace. The cast does a superb job creating characters that
are a stitch to watch.
All the action takes place in a bachelor apartment in Manhattan in 1979, during
one spring day. The play is written by William Van Zandt and Jane Milmore. There
are some very funny one-liners and comical situations that keep the audience howling
with laughter.
The show plays through May 2 at The Off Broadway Palm Theatre. For tickets

and one wayward college student then begin getting picked off one by one in surpris-
ing and astonishing ways while the survivors tn} to uncover who the murderer is.
Under the direction of Victor Legarreta and Justin P. Cowan, this off-kilter musical
will keep you guessing. Who will die first? Who will be left standing?

The IRS man pays a visit
by Di Saggau

cal farcical production involving two young men who try to deceive the IRS.
Leslie (Sean Riley) and Jon (Brendan Cataldo) are roommates. Jon does their
taxes and unknown to Leslie, in order to save them money, he has filed their tax
return as a married couple. Jon says for four years he's been cheating the govern-
ment out of money they shouldn't have anyway. He had not planned on an investi-
gation by IRS agent Mr. Spinner, played by Paul Bernier.
Against his better wishes, Leslie agrees to dress up like a woman in the hopes of
avoiding a costly audit. There's no fooling the audience with his transformation, but by
plying Mr. Spinner with enough drinks, the hoax works, at least for awhile. Bernier
is a riot as the intoxicated investigator. He plays a good drunk, if there is such a thing.
He is also wears the hat of director. Playing the landlord, is Dick Westlake, and he too

"That young man who played Vittorio
really nailed the character." Ursula (Katy
Gibble) shuffles her way across the stage
and into the arms of Vittorio. Her walk
is reminiscent of Morticia Adams from
The Adams Family and is equally as
funny. Helene (Allison Scott) and Nickie
(Natasha Poinciano) portray a very real-
istic friendship. The Frug dance, lead
by Frenchy the Pony Tail Girl (Eden
Shelton), hasstyle, poise and grace.
Daddy (Joey Whitesman) has an afro
that goes on forever as he preaches his
message to followers, and Herman s (lan

the Year), have developed the cast and
crew of Swueet Charity from a pool of
talented artists to this year s prominence
in the arts. Many of this year s cast and
crew evolved from the 2008, and 2009
Best High School Musical Awards win-
ners, All Shook Up and The
Producers.M


Computer-generated images are a feature of Cypress Lake's production of Sweet Charity


cased in Morsani Hall at the David A.
Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts
(formerly the Tampa Bay Performing
Arts Center).
This is the first time in Lee County
History a school has received such an
honor. Also an historical first, Cypress
lead actress Kacie Phillips was nominated
(1 of 3) as Best High School Actress in
the state by the Florida State Thespian
Society.
Sweet Charity was the first Lee
County High School production to
employ computer-generated imagery
(CGI). The CGI technology added by
Theater Director Jason Loete, added life,
dimension and a sense of realism to the


sets and reduced the number of set pieces
needed to complete the scenes.
Sweet Charity takes the audience
on an emotional roller coaster ride the
minute the curtain opens, beginning with
Charity (Kacie Phillips), who captures the
hearts of the audience. You 11 laugh with
her and cry for her.
Oscar (Jeremy Miller) has great come-
dic timing. Susan Niekamp, President
of Advanced Mentor Pro Voice Studio
said, "I laughed so hard, I cried" during
his elevator scene. It is one of the most
memorable scenes in the show. Vittorio
(Mike Nance) manages to be smooth,
debonair and funny all at the same time.
Bob Thompson of Sanibel Island said,

Florida Rep; A Comedy
Of M is understanding
by Di Saggau
If laughter is truly good for the soul, a lot of theater-goers,
After seeing Relatively Speaking, are leaving Florida Rep
Feeling a whole lot better than they did when they came
in. The play is by Alan Ayckbourn, who has been called The
Einstein of Farce. Farce is often described as a play that uses
ribald humor, exaggerated characters, absurd situations, split-
second timing and improbable plots. The good thing about this
play is that Ayckborn has refined this technique by turning his
middle-class English characters into people who fall into the
realm of reality. The key word being realm.
SThe plot focuses on marital infidelity. Two couples, one
youthful and the
other middle-aged, are completely confused
about each others identities. Ginny (Kim
Morgan Dean) and Greg (Jason Parrish) are
a young couple in love. Ginny has had an
affair with a much older married man. Greg
is jealous; she says, "Tmust me." Greg is a
gentle, sweet soul and Ginny realizes he is
the man she wants to marry. He remains
suspicious about her fidelity and decides
to pay a visit to her parents' house. That's
when the real fun begins.
The older couple Philip (Chris Clavelli)
and Sheila (Carrie Lund) live in a luxur-
ous English country house surrounded by
a beautiful garden with wisteria hanging
against the brick walls. There is quite a con-
trast between the two sets. Ginny's London
flat is cluttered with clothes hanging every-
where and '60s posters on the walls. When
the transformation takes place from the flat
to the glamorous country manor, it elicits
applause from the audience. Very clever. Jason Parrish, Kim Morgan Dean, Chris
It s easy to see that the spark has gone clavelli and Carrie Lund in Relafively
out of Philip and Sheila s marriage. They Speaking

gh through thhe otin but Philip more interested in where he placed the garden
Lund plays her role with great dignity, often ignoring her husband.
Clavelli is a master of the pregnant pause and the double take. He's a Brit with a
strong, stiff upper lip. All of the actors play their parts well and make it easy to identify
with their character.
To say more about the plot would be saying too much. Relatively Speaking direct-
ed by Robert Cacioppo offers an evening of solid entertainment and lots of laughs. It
runs through March 28 at Florida Repertoly Theatre in the Historic Arcade Theatre
on Bay Street between Jackson and Hendry. For tickets, call 332-4665.0


PIay On Stage

Eli Johnson, Andy Francis, and Caren Zarpelon star in the Edison State Theatre production
of Good
What makes us happy can't be bad. Can it?
That's the question Edison State College Theatre's play Good poses to
theater-goers in a sophisticated mix of humor, music and drama. Centered
around bookish professor John Halder during the rise of the Nazi Party in pre-World
War II Germany, Good examines how a series of small, expedient decisions can lead
to things terrible and totally unimaginable. Halder's journey from simple man to villain
is a poignant, witty, and sometimes surreal expedition into ethical marshes that begs
the question: what is good? And how can good men do evil things?
The show muns March 25 through 28 at Edison State College, in L119 B in the
Humanities Hall. Curtain is at 8 p.m., tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for
students. For tickets, call the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Center at 481-4849
or go to tickets@bbmannpah.com. Due to adult language, those under 17 years of
age will not be admitted.

Renee Fleming With The Royal

Opera Company In Lar Trarviata

BIG ARTS has penned a partnership
ration to bring international per-
forming arts companies to the big screen
in Schein Performance Hall.
On Tuesday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m. BIG
ARTS and DigiScreen/Opus Arte will pres-
ent La Traviata with The Royal Opera d "
Company captured live at the Royal Opera .(
House Covent Garden.
Opera megastar Rende Fleming's sump-
tuous Violetta will be on screen in high I
definition. P
"Nothing cautious about Ms. Fleming's
performance here! Tumultuous ova-
tions!" The Newu York Times' Anthony
Tommasini said of her performance. Eddie Wade and RenBe Fleming in La tra-
Grammy Award winner Fleming plays viata
the alluring courtesan Violetta Valery, who
breaks society's conventions for a life with
Alfredo Germont. Alfredo convinces Violetta to elope to the countryside, leaving the
tensions of Parisian society behind, but their arrangement threatens to bring scandal
on Alfredo's family. Facing a mortal illness, Violetta knows their love is doomed and
attempts to free Alfredo from burden by returning to Paris, a decision that comes with
dramatic results. Giorgio Germont, Alfredo's stern father, eventually discovers that
Violetta's love is truly noble while, only too late, Alfredo discovers the tmuth of her self-
less sacrifice.
A star cast including Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja (Alfredo) and American baritone
Thomas Hampson (Giorgio), join the company of The Royal Opera in this revival of
Richard Eyre's highly acclaimed 1994 production.
La Traviata, one of Guiseppe Verdi's best loved works, is an opera in three acts
based on Alexandre Dumas' La Dame aux Camblias.

set-ups, preemie car seats and preemie car beds. And there were treasures gotten as
well as given a beautiful wood carving of goldfinches by Sanibel's own Jim Sprankle,
and two original works of art by Captiva's own Darryl Pottorf, one that was auctioned
and a second that was donated by Pottorf directly to the hospital. Not to mention the
Name that Drink at Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille. Can you believe the concentration
of talent and generosity on these islands?
Heidi and Mark Marinello, honorary chairs for this 10th year, expressed their grate-
fulness: "It consistently amazes us that this community has given and continues to give
so much to The Children s Hospital." The Marinellos' son Matthew was the recipient
of life-saving care as an infant. In fact, Matthew's illness 10 years ago was the inspira-
tion behind the creation of Sanibel-Captiva Cares. "We are proud to give back and so
veny thankful to others who have joined this island group to make excellent medical
care for our children a goal and a mission. Our son Matthew is a happy, healthy child.
That speaks for The Children s Hospital in a way we never can," they said.

Department of Education last year in part
because of the programs such as Spanish
instruction supported by the Sanibel
School Fund. The nonprofit 501(c)3
organization raises money to pay for
school enhancements with a car fund-
raiser in addition to a golf tournament in
late spring.
"We all know this is a tough year
to make a donation, but consider it an
investment in our children s education
and support for the top-notch teachers at
the school," said Craig Holston, president
of the Sanibel School Fund. The Sanibel
School is known for its strong parent
involvement and that is a big part of its
success.
Tickets for the car fundraiser are $20
(or three for $50) and a maximum of
2,000 tickets will be sold. For last minute

Ten Years Of Sanibel-Captiva Caring
I A BSg | i Fo ( p '| p 's Ho |
by Evelyn Neill

I f you ever needed proof that this is a very special community, the generosity
ment. Over 350 folks came to celebrate 10 years of contribution and to usher in
the next decade of giving raising $450,000 old island style. Once again, Marty
Harrity served as the master of ceremonies or, should we say, doctor of ceremo-
nies? Doc Harrity was in good form with his own Nurse Julie on hand to dole out
lollipops and take donations from the good "patients" in the audience. And donate,
they did!
Thanks to Sanibel-Captiva Cares this year, The Children's Hospital of Southwest
Florida can now buy a state-of-the-art laparoscopic tower that will make less invasive
operations on small children possible what a great thing, indeed. And that's just the

Passion Activated Equals

A Community Served
by Arlene Knox, Director of Relationships Southwest Florida Cornrunity Foundation
P anigs by Robert Rauschenberg. Music by Kat Epple. Writings of Randy
Wayne White. These are just a few examples of how creative Southwest
Floridians express their passion for life and share it with others. But do you
know that philanthropy is also an expression of passion?
Every time you give to a favorite nonprofit, either on Sanibel or Captiva island, or
in your hometown, you express passion for an ultimate vision: to improve the lives
of others. Philanthropy is a deliberate and selfless act of giving your own resources to
meet the needs of others
A donor's financial contribution is similar to the artist's brush, the musician's instru-
ment, or the writer's pen; it is a wonderful tool to create a larger and more meaningful
masterpiece. It is a natural extension of a feeling and a desire to help others.
In this series on philanthropy, we talked about the unique nature of community
foundations and their emphasis on the creation of endowment funds. Community
foundations are experts at creating sustainable, long-term funding solutions for the
needs of a community, both through the creation of endowed funds and through stra-
tegic collaboration with other leaders to effectively address community issues.
It's a simple concept. An endowment fund is established for the current and future
needs of the community in a permanently held fund. Distributions made from an
endowment fund go directly to a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization to be used for pro-
grams, scholarships, and community initiatives. Funds are managed for long-term
sustainability
Donors may establish a fund today and continue to give to it throughout their life-
times or through their estate plans. Or, donors may simply create a fund through their
estate plan by using simple legal language with a "letter of request and direction." Over
time, the endowed fund grows, and thus the amount of the payout grows, which cre-
ates a permanent income stream for the benefit of the whole community.
A Reflective Process
As a prospective donor, you may wish to consider the following questions for creat-
ing an endowed fund (or for donating to any nonprofit organization):
What are the organizations to which I have given in the past? Why are they
important to my family and me?
*What type of legacy do I want to leave in Southwest Florida? If I create an
endowed fund, what specific agency or agencies would it benefit, or what field of inter-
est would I want to support (arts, environment, social justice, community development,


etc.)? Do I prefer to simply set up the funds so that they can be used where they are
mot dedlnes hre npmurtn nt to me? What programs have I witnessed that have
helped others or that I have used in my lifetime that I would like to see continued?
In as little as one meeting or over a series of visits, the community foundation will
work with each donor, couple, or family to help create options for charitable giv-
ing. The donor can then work with his/her professional advisor and provide written
instructions on how their philanthropic wishes will be carried out through a "Letter of
Request and Direction" and legal language. All visits are confidential and we work dili-
gently to create a philanthropy plan that is right for each donor.
Passion Matters
Whether it is a feeling, a hope, a wish, a dream, or a vision of better things to
come, your passion can be expressed for the greater good through the Southwest
Florida Community Foundation and our two divisions. Consider some the follow-
ing ways that nonprofits throughout Southwest Florida have benefitted from grants
received by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation just this past year:
*CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife) was able to purchase caging for
the new hospital.
*JN "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge was able to update nameplates for the
Recent Sightings board that lists bird, mammal, and reptile species seen at the refuge.
*FISH of Sanibel (Friends in Semvice Here) was able to hire its first paid staff posi-
tion a program director who provides case management services, client and commu-
nity need analysis, and acts as a liaison for volunteers and community organizations.
*CARES Suicide Prevention was also able to hire a program director who oversees
the organization's educational, outreach, and awareness programs.
*ECHO was able to hire a second-year intern who acts as a resource for partner-
ships with local nonprofits and for the establishment of edible gardens in the commu-
nity.
*The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools was able to serve an additional 50
students through ArtSpeak, a program for autistic students in Lee County schools.
These rants were made possible by the generosity of donors who established
endowed fnds with the community foundation. This is only a partial listing of the non-
profits that have received recent grants. For a complete list, visit our Web site at www.
floridacommunity.com. If you are interested in leaving a lasting legacy in Southwest
Florida, consider answering some of the reflective questions above. Then, bring the
answers to your next appointment with your professional advisor or to us at your com-
munity foundation.
The Good Neighbor Community Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva is a division of the
Southwest Florida Community Foundation, which has been supporting the communi-
ties of Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Glade, and Hendry counties for over 33 years. Through
331 endowed funds, the foundation has provided more than $45 million in grants and
scholarships to the communities it serves. For more information call 274-5900.0

FGCU Scholarship
by Brian Johnson
Amanda Podlasek, 14, the daugh-
ter of Island Cow owners Brian
Aand Elke Podlasek, has won a full
scholarship to FGCU for her project
at the Thomas Alva Edison Regional
Science and Engineering Fair.
Amanda, an avid naturalist who loves
to explore the marine life around the Gulf
of Mexico on Sanibel Island, submitted a
study of red tide entitled Comparing Filter
Feeding of Karenia Brevis by Tunicates
and Oysters.
The Canterbung School 8th grader

Batch 1 Student

Assignment
COmplete
approximately 14,300 students
participated in the Lee County
School District s Student
Assignment lottery, which was conduct-
ed the evening of Thursday, March 18.
Following a second year of lower than
expected student growth, nearly 84 per-
cent of students who applied between
January 19 and March 5 received their
first choice. More than 94 percent
received one of their top three choices.
Last school year, approximately 79
percent of applicants received their
first choice and 95 percent received
one of their top three choices after the
first batch was conducted. There were
approximately 900 fewer applicants pro-
cessed this year as compared to 2009.
"Im pleased that we could place that
many in their first choice schools," said
Leila Muvdi, director of student assign-
ment. "Over the next several months,
we will process the eligibility pools as
vacancies occur, which will move many
students into their first choice schools.
We often find that many are well satisfied
with their second or third choice, how-

"We will begin mailing notices to fami-
lies March 26," said Muvdi. "We want
everyone to read the information sent to
them very carefully.
Any student who did not receive their
first choice is automatically placed in the
eligibility pool for their first choice school.
There is no need for parents to call
requesting placement in an eligibility pool
- it's automatic.
The second open-enrollment period
for fall classes began March 8and con-
tinues through Tuesday, June 15 (the
last day of the 2009/10 school year.)
Once school ends, the district will make
administrative assignments for students in
grades six and nine who have not made
their own school selections for next year.

program can call the Student Assignment

industry and they also can have negative
impacts on human health," she added.
"The effects of naturally occurring filter
feeding organisms might be able to mini-
mize the extend of red tide outbreaks and
help reduce the irnpacts of red tide on
the environment.
Amanda has a passion for science
and nature, and has many animals at her


home. Her entry at the science fair was
not required by her school; she did it on
her own because she was inspired to do
so.
"She loves it, she likes to help," said
her mother, Elke. "It s incredible that she
won first place. What is really good about
it is that she is even more determined

They went with donated vaccine,

"To see the smiles of the children from

Dr. Thomas during vaccination sessions.
Thomas said the group wants to

enlist help from doctors and nurses. "We
want to make a more personal contribu-

FitZgefald And Fitzgerald Defy
The Odds In Mernber-Guest Victory
by John Boynton

Guest Tournament it would be 50-1 odds against a 32 handicapper with a stiff
back playing from the gold tees playing with his 26 handicap son. But that's
exactly the win Tom Fitzgerald and his son John pulled off on March 16 in a two-
man shamble format. When head professional Scott Hatto opened in the final
scores on his display board, the Fitzgeralds were at the very top with a net score
of 48. "I wasn't sure I could go 18 holes with my bad back," said Tom, "but my son
wanted to play so I gave it a shot. It turned out to be just one of those days where
everything clicked and one of us just happened to come up with a good shot when we
needed it." On par 3 hole #6, Tom hit a shot he didn t think was going to clear the
water, but "it just made it over, hit hard ground, and kept on rolling toward the hole.
It wasn t an ace, but it was good enough for an important par on the way to victory.
Congratulations to the Fitzgeralds! Second place went to Bary Humphries and Dunes
golf captain Skip Richards, who tied for second at 51 and fought off Anthony Baldino
and another Dunes golfer, Mike Hnatow, in an exciting 3 hole playoff. Cocktails,
award presentations, and a fine Beachview Steakhouse dinner sent all participants and
spouses home tired, but happy.
On Saturday, March 20, 32 Beachview men squared off in a two-man scramble
format. Don Hummel came out of semi-retirement to win with a score of 44.4, aided
by his brother-in-law Jack Tukey. Tom Ware and Dick Chocol (49) finished second,
and Dick Waterhouse and Terry Myers (49.4) were third. Solid Fall Classic winner
Mike MacKay and his partner, oil magnate and stand-up comedian John Moores, sur-
prised everyone in the field by finishing dead last at 60. "We would have won if Mike
had made 16 more putts," quipped Moores.
P.S. Just as Dick Codair and Russ Bilgore have established the tradition of teeing
off every weekday morning at 7:30 a.m., there is a group of Beachview men golfers
who tee off every Wednesday at noon. Golf balls are thrown in the air on the first tee
to determine the teams for the day, and there is also an individual competition for
net skins (i.e. the lowest score on a hole net of handicap, with no ties). Three to five
groups play on a given Wednesday, various team matches are negotiated, verbal barbs
are flying throughout the afternoon, and the day ends in the 19th hole over drinks and
popcorn where skins and team match results are reported and contested vigorously.
Members of this jovial group include Bill Stell, Bill Fellows, Jack Tukey, Rich Croce,

creation of cultured pearls in the early
1900s.
Pearls occur when mollusks such as
oysters and mussels coat tiny intruding
irritants with lustrous nacre made primar-
ily of microscopic calcium carbonate
engstals. Once found in waters around the
world, natural pearls are now very rare
due to over-fishing and pollution. Natural
pearls have been replaced in the industry
by cultured pearls.
A cultured pearl is created when a
technician introduces the irritant in the
form of a small bead made of plastic,
shell or flesh from other mollusks into
the host mollusk. The artificial irritant
becomes the nucleus of the cultured
pearl, with the nacre building around it.
This process takes approximately two
years and does not always result in a per-

Twins Invest $3.1 Million In
1 6-Year-Old Rookie Shortstop
From The Dominican Republic
by Ed Frank
You re 16 years old, you're in a strange country where
you don't speak the language and you're homesick
for your family. However, you are blessed with rarified
baseball skills and talent that rewarded you with a record $3.1
million signing bonus the most ever paid by the Minnesota
.Twins to a non-drafted rookie.
This is the complex and challenging life of Miquel Angel
Id Sano, a strapping six-foot-four, 195-pound youngster who is
considered the No.1 prospect in the baseball-rich Dominican
Republic.
A slick-fielding shortstop with offensive power, Sano has been
scouted by the Twins since he was 14. They forged a close relationship with his family
while conducting an exhausting examination of his background to verify his age.
We talked to Miquel through his interpreter, Christian Martinez, who also is his
English teacher.
"I'm blessed and thankful to be here. I've made a ton of new friends. Minnesota is a
wonderful organization and they will help me develop my skills," he said.
Asked what a 16-year-old does with $3.1 million dollars, he replied quickly that he
doesn't handle the money and that he is happy to be able to help his large family with
nine brothers.
To understand the vast complexities involved in the signing of Sano, one must also
understand that birth, school and family records in the Dominican Republic are not
what they are in the United States.
A year ago, baseball was thrown into turmoil when it was discovered that the
Washington Nationals had paid a bonus of more than $1 million to a rookie in the
Dominican Republic who used a fictitious name while claiming he was 19 when it was
later found he was actually 23.
At 23, a player should be at or near Major League level, not starting out at the
rookie level. That episode cost the Washington general manager his job along with
several others.
As a result, Major League baseball tightened its investigative standards even further
to present such fraud in the future.

Rookie Shortstop
7-5-1 against the Stingrays for the season.
With just six games remaining in the regular season, four on the road and the final
two at home, it is unlikely that the Everblades can overtake South Carolina which held
a nine-point advantage as the week began.
But the local hockey team does have the opportunity to gain a higher seed in the
post-season playoffs by moving ahead of second-place Charlotte in the ECHL South
Division
Four of the Everblades remaining six games are against Charlotte, two this week
on the road and the final two games here at Germain next weekend.
Charlotte had a four-point lead on Florida entering the week.
The three division winners in the ECHL American Conference qualify for post-sea-
son play along with the next five teams with the highest point totals. Florida's season
record of 35-22-4 (79 points) placed them third among the five.
Following the midweek games at Charlotte, the Everblades travel to Gwinnett for
two weekend games.

Aztec Plumbing Sits Upon Its
Porcelain Throne
by Nick Brown
With a crucial 12-11 overtime win against the Bailey s Baggers last week,
the Aztec Plumbing Warriors have taken the lead in the Sanibel Softball
League. This is the first time they have led the league since the days of
their empire around the year 1200 A.D. The Great White Grill, which has an equiv
alent record, is ranked below Aztec because of its head-to-head match up where
Aztec Plumbing clogged the Great White Grill's late rally back in week two.
Aztec Plumbing Warrior Tommy "Can t Touch This" Hensel leads the league with
in-the-park homeruns, primarily due to his speed. He said, "Aztec will build a pyramid
of victories this season over the corpses of our opponents.-
Another big match up last week was the Game of the Grills Sanibel Grill
Rec N Crew versus the Great White Grill. Sanibel Grill took a quick 10-run lead but
Great White stoked the fire up late in the match with an unanswered 19 runs to win
19-13.
In the other games, the Sundial cracked All Island Glass in a close 11 to 10 game
and Sanctuary Island Electric tasered Royal Shell with a shocking 25-10 score.
The Sanibel Adult Softball League plays every Wednesday and Thursday night at
the Sanibel Ball Fields. For more information, contact the Sanibel Recreation Center

CF"I bg
TOurnament

At The Le 89I
submitted by
Bob Buntrock


Ifyou are a cribbage player here's orcactobcowdSnbl-
Captiva's Cribbage Champion of
Champions.
Four cribbage mini-tournaments will
be run on four consecutive Monday
nights March 29, April 5, April 12, and
April 19 at American Legion Post 123.
Sign up starts at 5:30 p.m. and matches
begin at 6. Entry fee for each night is $5.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top
three weekly winners with 60 percent of
the pot going to first place, 30 percent
to second place, and 10 percent to third
place. The tournaments are open to the
public to play or kibbitz.
Each player will play five games of


cribbage in the mini-tournaments with
opponents selected by blind draw.
On Monday, April 26, at 6 p.m.,
all the money winners from the four
mini-tournaments will meet in a round-
robin tournament to determine Sanibel-
Captiva's Cribbage Champion of
Champions for 2010. Again the entry
fee will be $5 with the top three places
paid 60 percent, 30 percent, and 10
percent.
You can contact American Legion
Post member and tournament organizer
Bob Buntrock at 274-7881 or bobbun-
trock@comcast.net with any questions or
to indicate your interest in competing. Or,
just show up at Legion Post 123 at 5:45
each of the Monday nights and pay your
entry fee to play.
If you are planning to enter one or
more of the mini-tournaments, it is
strongly suggested that you play a few
practice games with your friends or rela-
tives prior to March 29 because Donn
Daus, Pete Mindel, and Scott Marcelais
have already stated loudly and publicly
that they are by far the best cribbage
players on the islands and that no one
else stands a chance of being named
Sanibel-Captiva's Cribbage Champion of
Champions.
Enter the competition for good fun
and to show these three gentlemen that
they are blowing smoke. The American
Legion Post 123 is at mile marker 3 on
Sanibel-Captiva Road.O


Make sure at the beginning of the
match to mix up your passing shots with
lobs. This way the opponent will not
know what you are going to hit and it will
keep him or her back a bit thereby open-
ing up the court more.
Also, make sure to use the natural ele-
ments around you. If the sun is shining
bright on one side, make sure you take
advantage of the sun and lob so they
lose the ball in the sun. Also, if the wind
is behind you this will make it easier for
you to hit a deep lob in the court forcing
them away from the net.
By mixing it up you will keep your
opponent doing the guesswork and on
their toes.


by Louis Vosloo
any times
your oppo-
Mnent rushes
the net and gets
better and better
at reading your
passing shots.
Therefore, we start
to resort to the lob,
which they might
start putting away,
too, because they are expecting it.

TWinS' Mauer Becomes Highest

Paid Catcher In Baseball History
by Ed Frank
T ith the same pen he used when he first
\ signed with the Minnesota Twins nine
V ears ago as a teenager, Joe Mauer
inked a $184 million eight-year contract before 1
a packed press conference Monday night mak-
ing him the highest paid catcher in the history of
baseball.
"I love putting on a Mirmesota Twins uniform. *
This is where I want to be," Mauer said, emphasiz- &
ing he made it clear to his agent and the Twins
organization that he wanted to remain playing
baseball just seven miles from where he grew up.
The eight-year, no-trade deal is not only base-
ball's biggest contract for a catcher, but is the third
highest contract ever signed in baseball.
Only 26 years old, Mauer is the reigning
American League batting champion, American
League MVP, a gold glove winner, three-time All-
Atarecaim ne an sa rt theA batnbcB m in- Twins player #7 2009 AL MVP, Joe
Mauer waves to the crowd at a
ship three of the last four years, only one of 10 Twnhoegm
players in Major League history to win three or
more batting titles.
The 6-foot-5, 230-pound catcher was selected by the Twins as the first pick in the
2001 baseball draft upon his graduation from Cretin-Derham Hall High School in
Minnesota.
Twins General Manager Bill Smith told the press gathering that it took less than 60
days to hammer out Mauer's contract once it became clear that his All-Star wanted to
remain with the organization.
Asked whether he considered testing the free-agent market, Mauer said "I was curi-
ous but I wanted to stay here.

Upon BIG ARTS


Lee Ellen Harder and Maryann Bell


John M. and Mary Jo Boler


Thanks to support from sponsors,
volunteers and the community,
BIG ARTS' annual benefit on
Monday, March 15 was a huge success.
More than 400 revelers were proud in
their "wearing of the green" as they
had cocktails, Irish beer and appetizers.
Irish fare also included cheeses imported
from Ireland, poached salmon, shep-
herd's pie, Welsh eggs, and corned beef
and cabbage.
Event chairs Andrea Gainer and
JoAnn McKelvey helped mobilize an
army of more than 40 volunteers, who
cooked, served and helped transform
Boler Garden into an Irish village. The
evening was topped off with a perfor-
mance of Irish ballads, Irish jokes and


JoAnn McKelvey and Andrea Gainer in
traditional Irish frocks
step dancing by Dublin's Traditional Irish
Cabaret, followed by desserts and Irish
coffee in the garden and a spirited sing-
along in Phillips Gallery.

Twins Mauer
Mauer makes his off-season home
here in Fort Myers and played his early
professional career with the Twins Class
A Fort Myers Miracle where he hit .335
in 62 games in 2003. His older brother
Jake will manage the Miracle this year.
The contract will take Mauer through
the 2018 season. "The chance to spend
15 seasons with my home town team
means a lot to me," he said.
Smith said that the Twins organiza-
tion has always been family and when a
player says he wants to stay, the Twins
will work toward that end.
"Twenty-five of our 40-man Major
League roster came up through our farm
system and have played only with the
Twins," he said.
The opening of the Twins new sta-
dium, Target Field, next month has
produced vast new revenues. The Twins'
payroll this season approaches $100 mil-
lion and will far exceed that figure next
year when Mauer's $23-million-a-year
contract kicks in.
Both Smith and Mauer told the
Monday night press conference that they
wanted to reach agreement before the
beginning of the season so as not to cre-
ate a team distraction.

Se ec ing The Right Trus ee?

aren t properly attended to. Consider
naming the most responsible person for
the job of successor trustee. And make
no bones about it, acting as a successor
trustee is a job. It is not an honor. It is
rife with responsibilities and deadlines.
Finally, you should have a conversa-
tion with those that you have named as
your successor trustee. Don t let them
find out about it when the time actually
arrives. They should be prepared to act
and should know basics, such as where
you keep your financial statements and
legal documents. They should know who
your CPA is, who your lawyer is, who
your financial advisor is.


Sales Leaders


In the best of all worlds they ve actu-
ally met your advisors and had a chance
to talk to them, even if that talk is five
minutes. Don t risk having a "transition in
a time of crisis The better prepared and
knowledgeable those who you ve named
to fill important roles are, the easier it will
be for everyone.

has a revoca-
b eyn hle living trust
3 has named a trust-
ee of their trust.
Typically you name
yourself which
means that you
have total control
over all of the trust
assets. Your trust will also name some-
one or some institution to administer it
when you die and ultimately make dis-
tribution of the trust assets to your loved
ones named in the document.
But what happens if you get sick and
are unable to manage your own affairs?
If a certificate of deposit comes due and
needs to be rolled over, who is going to
make that decision for you? Who decides
how much of your trust assets should
be budgeted for long term care and
whether your assets can support in home
nursing care? Who s going to make deci-
sions regarding the sale of a property or
continuing lifetime gifts to support a child
or grandchild?
All of these issues and more are
addressed by your successor trustee. The
trustee who acts in the event of your dis-
ability can be the same person or can be
different than the trustee who administers
your estate when you die. If you have dif-
ferent types of assets a family business,
for example you might want to name a


person as a separate trustee to run that
in the event you are not able to but you
are still alive.
Let s say that you ve named a bank
or trust company to manage your invest-
ment assets. Those types of financial
institutions are well equipped to decide
what investments you should have and
how to maximize the income that you
will need for your care. Those same
financial institutions, however, do not
generally prefer to manage real estate
investments or small businesses. There s
nothing that prohibits you from naming
different parties to manage the different
types of assets that you may own.
Carefully consider the family members
that you name to act for you in the event
of your disability. Many prefer to name
their spouse. But if your spouse has
never managed assets before, or is failing
physically or mentally her(him)self, then
you might want to add a supporting co-
trustee to act with your spouse, or con-
sider bypassing your spouse altogether.
I ve had several conversations with my
clients about naming their children as a
successor trustee or as a co-trustee. Often
they 11 want to name the eldest child, sim-
ply because he or she is the eldest, even
if another child might be more adept at
handling things. "I don t want to offend
my eldest child," the refrain might go.
Here I advise caution. Too much can
go wrong if your legal and financial affairs

by Cindy Malszycki


Some says a~ th us
lot about you, your
lifestyle and your
personality. One of
the most important
decisions you'll
make about your
home is what to do
with your windows.
Once you have fully considered the
functional requirements as discussed in
last week's article, you can begin to look
at designs that meet the decorative needs
of the window and room as a whole. A
well-designed window fashion harmonizes
with the rest of the room and adds to
the sense of unity. It is in scale with the
room and its furnishings and is well-pro-
portioned. To determine the design of the
treatments, consider your preference in
decorating style, the degree of formality
you want and the overall mood you want
to achieve.
Do you want to make a bold, deco-
rative statement, or use your window
treatment as a subtle background to your
furnishings? Sometimes it's very impor-
tant to design your windows not only to
hide an unpleasant view, but to allow
for plenty of sunshine. Be sure to think
through all the needs of your room before
deciding on a specific window treatment
design.


Another reason for more effective
filtration is that the slower you draw air
across a filter, the more effective it is.
When it comes time to have air condi-
tioning equipment changed, you might
want to consider the benefits of variable
speed technology.
After a long cold winter, it finally is
warming up.
Thanks, as always.
Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air condi-
nioning contractor: He als, owns, ulith
his brother Todd, an electrical busi-
ness on Sanibel. He can be reached at
Bryan@Sanibelair:com#


Some practical considerations might
be:
What is the size of the room?
How many windows are there? Are
all the windows in the room the same
shape and size?
*Are the windows in scale with the
room and its furnishings?
*Are there architectural flaws that
need to be disguised?
*Are the window proportions pleasing
or should they be altered with the window
treatment?
*Should the windows play a starring
role or act as a background element?
*What other furnishings (furniture,
wallcovering, flooring, accessories) will be
in the room?
*What colors, patterns and textures
are used in the room?
*What can/should the window fash-
ions contribute to the decorating scheme
(achieve better balance, repeat lines and/
or colors to add to rhythm, unify other
elements, provide a focal point for an
othenvise uninspiring room, etc.)?
The answers to these questions will
narrow your window fashion choices
further as you now have determined both
your functional and decorative needs.
One final aspect to consider is, of
course, your budget. It is really not the
last item but one that should be consid-
ered throughout the designing process.
In summary, to ensure successful win-
dow fashion design, carefully consider
these elements: functional, decorative,
emotional, and budgetary. And remem-
ber, the window treatment design you
select must be practical as well as beauti


ful. Nothing can give your room that
sparkly designer look better than a cus-
tom designed window treatment.

Ssignificant o t
advancment
v. ienolg nmi air conditioning
~opinion is the vari-
able speed air han-
dler. A definition of
what an air handler
is would be benefi-
cial at this point. In
most air conditioning systems you have
two major components that comprise
your a/c system. The outside unit is
referred to as the condensing unit this
is where the heat that was absorbed in
the conditioned space is dissipated. The
air handler on the other hand is the part
that absorbs the heat.
What makes variable speed air han-
dlers so special is their ability to run at
different speeds depending on the cooling
needs. Most air handlers have one or two
speeds at best. With a variable speed air
handler you have many advantages over
single speed units. Humidity control is a
major one. As your a/c system runs you
are dehumidifying the conditioned space
more effectively this is achieved because
the initial start-up is slower, allowing the
coil in the air handler to get colder much
faster. This allows a tremendous amount
of heat and humidity to be removed at
an exaggerated rate. This is beneficial for
both your comfort level and your energy
bills.
There are two different ways that the
homeowner can run their variable speed
air handler. The system can be run in the
auto mode where the system starts and
slowly ramps up to 50 percent of the
rated speed in two minutes, then it will
ramp up over the course of eight minutes
to 80 percent of the rated speed and only
reach 100 percent of the rated speed if
necessary.
The alternate way to run a variable
speed air handler is to run it in the "on"
setting. What will happen is the air han-
dler will run at 50 percent of the rated
speed at all times. It will only ramp up
and down when cooling needs mandate
it. There are several things that are
being accomplished. The first is an even
temperature throughout the conditioned
space this is accomplished by the con-
stant air movement. This is very beneficial
for those back rooms that are always too
hot or to cold. The second major benefit
iS the continues filtration of the air in the
conditioned space. By running the system
continuously you are constantly bring-
ing contaminants back to the filtration
system.

Freshwater pearls are the most afford-
able of all cultured pearls. The come in a
wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors.
Most come from freshwater streams, riv-
ers and lakes in China, with others com-
ing from the United States and Japan.
Pearls are traditionally used for wed-
dings, anniversaries and other celebra-
tions of romance and love. Their colors
and delicacy are symbols of purity and
love.
Pearls are delicate and should not be
cleaned with steam, ultrasonic or com-
mercial solutions. It is best to simply wipe
the jewelry with a soft, clean cloth after
each wearing. Cultured pearls can be
damaged by most chemicals including
makeup, hairspray and perfume; they
are also easily scratched. So use cau-
tion when handling them. Store them
separately from other jewelry and if worn
often, be sure to restring them every few
years.
So whether you are looking for a
romantic creamy white pearl to go with
your wedding gown, a sophisticated sil-
ver to complement your favorite cocktail
dress or a simple white to help celebrate
your anniversary, cultured pearls are the
perfect touch of class for any occasion.

the Democratic Club of the Islands at
the The Community House. "I mean
revive, remake and revitalize Florida's

In order to put people back to work

the state needs to build a new founda-

on tourism and development, she told the

is creating and saving jobs, she said, by

jobs is also a priority.

worked tirelessly behind the scenes to promote the sport of showing purebred dogs.
Their hard work will pay off this May as exhibitors from throughout the southern
United States will travel to Fort Myers for an official American Kennel Club (AKC) event.
This year's event will draw more than 150 different breeds to Southwest Florida. The
show will include conformation, obedience and rally trials, junior handling and a puppy
match. There will also be vendor booths that will be filled with treats, toys and trinkets
targeting man's best friend. Show organizers are optimistic that the show will have
approximately 1,200 registered exhibitors.
"One of the main goals of the Greater Fort Myers Dog Club is to promote respon-
sible dog ownership," said Lesley Peterson, show chairwoman for the GFMDC. The


other priority of the club is to educate the public about the do's and don't of selecting
the right family companion.
The show will be held at the Lee Civic Center, 11831 Bayshore Road in North Fort
Myers, at the junction of State Road 31 and 78, on Saturday May 22, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.,
and Sunday, May 23, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with judging beginning at 8:30 a.m. each day.
There will be an $8 per car per day entn} fee, or $15 for both days. Due to
AKC regulations, dogs not entered in the show will not be allowed into the building.
Additionally, no children's strollers are permitted in the buildings.

PETA Urges Animal Lovers
TO Leave Pets Home

for just a few minutes and urges everyone to leave their canine companions
safe at home on warm days.
Hot weather is often deadly for children and animals, who are unable to protect
themselves when exposed to rising temperatures. This important message 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 outside was only 71 degrees.
When left in a hot vehicle, a child's body temperature can increase three to five
times faster than an adult's, and because dogs can't perspire and can only cool them-
selves by panting, they can succumb to heatstroke in just 15 minutes and suffer brain

46B ISLAND SUN MARCH 26, 2010


Hi, my name is Pepper and I'm
a one-year-old male red-nose
HAmerican Staffordshire terrier.
I was found in December by an animal
control officer who was kind enough
to bring me to the shelter where I have
received great care. I really like the
people here but every night I dream
of my own home. My friends on both
sides of me have come and gone into
their forever homes and so I get lonely
at night. I'm a good boy, very loyal
and extremely capable. I think that I'm
learning obedience commands quickly
and I'd like to show you how well I
can behave. I can sit, stay, come and
lie down. Maybe you could teach me
to roll over, or to give you my paw. If
you have room for a strong, healthy
boy in your home, just ask for Pepper.
I'm sure to spice things up. I'll watch
for you. By the way, my adoption fee
is $55 during March's Find Your Lucky
Charm adoption promotion.
Hey meow, I'm Garth. I'm a three-
year-old big friendly boy and I'd love Pepper ID# 460781
to be part of your family. In fact, my
dream life is to be the best friend to
someone like you. I also double as a
Confidant or a counselor depending on
the situation. Whenever you need some-
one to talk to, I'll be there. I'm a really
good listener. When I'm feeling sad I
just think about getting a new home or
being petted and brushed and suddenly
I'm purring up the place. I could be
happy with, and I promise not to disp-
point you. So why don t you come and
get me and take me home. I just want 1
to go home. > -
My adoption fee is $30 during
March's Find Your Lucky Charm adop-
tion promotion. -
Through the end of the month
adopters will receive $20 off the regular
adoption fee for all pets plus a com-
plimentary green T-shirt. The reduced
adoption fee will still include the com- ,
plete 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, Garth ID# 466069
refer to the animal's ID number. The '
Web site updates every hour so you will
be able to see if these or any other pets are still available. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers,
next to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, off Six Mile Cypress Parkway. All adoptions include spay/
neuter 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
