Clarence Rutland, as a young man, helped
build the house in 1913 and later he was
able to buy it for his family.
The Rutland House was the first build-
ing brought to the village. Around it the
museum village of Sanibel Island's history
"I also feel privileged to have toured the
village a couple of times with Sam Bailey,
and I use his stories a lot when talking to
visitors. One humorous story is about Ruth
Rutland's 'mood barometer' at the front
entrance. When it was vertical, she was
accepting visitors; when it was horizontal,
she was resting.
When asked about his life before
Sanibel and the village, Strobel said, "In
my former life I was manager of photog-
raphy for Chrysler Corporation in Detroit.
During my employment, I was a member
of a committee that tried to convince the
company to establish a much-needed auto-
mobile museum. After 15 years, it was
finally opened in 2000 after I did most
of the benchmarking in the United States
In the summers Strobel and his wife
live in northern Michigan where he
enjoys his two classic cars and nearby
lighthouses. "We have two daughters and
seven grandchildren," he says, "who love
to come to Sanibel each winter to swim,

somewhat partial to Kiwanians because
we were her first venue during her first
year here on Sanibel. An important fact
that we learned was that the city acknowl-
edged the downturn in the economy
quickly and started making adjustments.
A few things she addressed immediately
at the helm were: escalating the payoff ,
of the city s debt load, reducing the city s
portion of the property taxes, freezing
city employees' salaries, reworking the
pension system, hiring part time employ-
ees to reduce benefits, and contracting
out work. You will notice that nowhere
in her plan did she mention adding to
the debt by writing landmark bills heav-
ily laden with pork. I think I speak for all

thank her for all of the great work she

redefines the definition of a clinic. It
serves as a community and education hub
When Lyons was a little girl, her
grandfather Raymond Dix was a journal-

great friends with a Nicaraguan journalist,

pendent daily La Prensa and the leader
of an opposition alliance campaigning
for the removal of President Anastasio
Somoza Debayle; he was jailed and even-

the community. We asked ourselves, why
don't we build a medical clinic?"
Nicaragua is the second poorest coun-
try in Latin America and has one of the
highest rates in the hemisphere of both
adolescent fertility and maternal mortality.
One in five Nicaraguans are malnour-
ished. State hospitals are lacking in both
equipment and supplies. The need is
ClinicaVerde rethinks the idea of clinic,
serving as a community hub as well as a
site for care and education. When families
comee, they find a sustainable garden,
demonstration kitchen, small cafta, library
with Internet access, playground for
children, and opportunities for financial
education and micro finance.
The Lyons have many contacts in
Nicaragua and in the States and they
know how to express their passion for
the mission of building ClinicaVerde
Health & Hope and how to call on
their contacts for help. Serving on
ClinicaVerde, Boaco's board of directors
is Margarita Gurdian, former Minister
of Health of Nicaragua; Kenneth B.

In the early 2000s she and her husband
had the opportunity to visit Nicaragua as
volunteers with fellow St. Helena resident
Jake Scheideman at his extensive human-

Nicaragua. While there, the Lyons visited
a hospital in Boaco, and were moved by
the dire need for medical equipment and
supplies at the hospital. They returned
home and started raising money and
working with international organizations
to fill shipping containers with medical

American Saints Course
At Sanibel Congregational Church
The Rev. John H. Danner, PhD, will offer a three-part course, American
Saints: People You Should Know, at the Sanibel Congregational United
Church of Christ in April.
Throughout the history of the church, various men and women have provided
examples of what it means to live Christian lives. While some faith traditions canonize
certain folks label them as saints others simply acknowledge that certain people
provide good role models.
In America three such "saints" are: Sojourner Truth, Reinhold Niebuhr and Martin
Luther King, Jr.
*Sojourner Truth was a slave who, after her emancipation, became a very vocal
spokesperson for the rights of women and people of all races. Her courage and con-
viction led to many interesting stories.
*Reinhold Niebuhr has been called the most important modern American theolo-
gian. His writing on war and peace, in particular, has often fueled debates and conver-
sations in times of crisis.
*Martin Luther King, Jr. is probably the best known of the three. A prolific writer
and campaigner for Civil Rights, King was first and foremost a preacher. His religious
works are sometimes unknown, and provide an interesting insight into this important
figure in modern history.
The American Saints course is open to the public and will be held on three con-
secutive Wednesdays, April 7, 14 and 21, from 10 to 11:15 a.m. in Fellowship Hall at
Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, 2050 Periwinkle Way.M

of faith over the illusion of this world s false powers. Hymns of freedom and praise will
mark what is, for all Christian people, the central event of human history.M

Joseph Caulkins will conduct the Sanctuary Choir and Handbell Choir of First
presentation called Portrait of Grace on Good Friday, April 2, at 7 p.m. at First
Baptist Church of Fort Myers, 1735 Jackson Street.
Also featured will be soloists Jeana Malone, Michelle Caulkins, Vincent Gonzalez,
and Rev. Dr. William Smith, former pastor at First Baptist Church, who will serve as
narrator for this new cantata.
"From poets and painters to singers and sculptors, the human spirit has always
sought to convey through artistic expression the richness of faith," Caulkins said.
Joseph M. Martin's new cantata, Portrait of Grace, was inspired by centuries of
art based on Christ's passion. In addition to the cantata, the professional orchestra will
perform several selections and so will the First Baptist Ringers handbell choir.
Baritone Vincent Gonzalez will join the choir for Lloyd Larson's Calvary, Jeana
Malone will sing the popular Via Dolorosa, and Michelle Caulkins will perform the
dramatic conclusion of Martin's Portrait of Grace, the Pieta.
Following the cantata, Pastor John Daugherty will lead a short service of Tenebrae,
which is Latin for shadows. This is an ancient service in which candles are extin-
guished one by one until all candles are out as soloist Anthony Contino, the choir and
orchestra present Berthier's All You Who Pass This Way. The purpose of the service
is to recreate the betrayal, abandonment, and agony of the events, and it is left unfin-

years ago. Carlene Brennen and Ralph Woodring during the Tarpon
Brennen, who has Bay ceremony
co-authored a book with
bestselling writer Randy Wayne White about the history of tarpon fishing, told the
assembled crowd that in 1855, William Halsey Wood, an architect from Dansville,
New York, was the first person documented to bring a tarpon to the boat by rod and
He had tried before many times and lost many a tarpon, said Bremnen. He kept
redesigning his tackle but his biggest breakthrough may have been when he came to
the conclusion he had to let this massive fish run and not try to hold it back. "He got
two more that day and two more at the mouth of the river," Brennan said. His feat
was reported in the Newu York Times and the Fort Myers Newus-Press.
The event spawned an industry in the area, bringing boat designers and builders
and tackle companies. Local guides were much sought after by wealthy visitors. Fish
camps and hotels sprung up to accommodate them. Even writer and outdoorsman
Zane Grey came here to practice on these mighty warriors before heading to Nova
Scotia to try for a big fish record.
The book, titled Randy Wayne White's Ultimate Tarpon Book: The Birth of Big
Game Fishing, a 400-page tome, will be out in October. Besides giving the history
of the sport, it will contain a tarpon stories from some of the best outdoor writers in
the nation, including Zane Grey and Ernest Hemingway, interspersed with chapters
and comments from White, who was a fishing guide out of Tarpon Bay Marina before
he became a novelist. Brennan is also an accomplished tarpon angler and has been
president of several local tarpon hunters clubs, which were represented at last week s
Ralph Woodring, son of a pioneer Sanibel family, said tarpon scales found in
Indian mounds prove that the Calusa caught tarpon before Wood and ate them. For
commercial fishermen, hooking a tarpon was "the worst thing that could happen,
Woodring said. "They tear up your gear.
Paul Tritaik, manager of the JN "Ding" Darling Wildlife Refuge, of which Tarpon
Bay is part, admitted to becoming hooked on hunting the silver kings.
He said Wood s first tarpon was caught on a five-foot bamboo pole, 21-thread line
and a side of mullet fwired on for bait.
"It took 26V/2 minuteS from the first leap to bringing him to the skiff. The tarpon
was five feet nine inches and 93 pounds," Tritaik said.M

showed up all over
from the beaches and passes all the way

is still going on, trout have really moved
out onto the flats and I even had a
report from a friend of a few rolling tar-
pon in the middle sound this week.
This week Boca Grande Pass has
been loaded with Spanish mackerel. I
have been trolling spoons and small div-
ing plugs along the channel edges while
looking for diving birds to cast into. This
makes for some of the easiest fishing
there is. The macks can be spotted jump-
ing all the way out of the water as they
slash through schools of small baitfish.
These Spanish mackerel should be thick

them on the edges and drop offs and
right up close to the sandbars where the
current is really moving.
Ladyfish and a few kings are mixed in
with these mackerel too. Sure the mack-
erel are far from the best eating fish but
they are a great fight and just to go out
and catch such high numbers of fish after
such a drought this winter is an awesome
thing. There should be sharks on these
mackerel schools too if you're looking
for a little larger game. I personally have
not seen any sharks on them yet but with
so many mackerel the sharks are not far
Long-shanked hooks rigged on your
spoons and plugs will save you a lot of
tackle and make these fish much easier
to unhook. I remove the treble hooks and
replace them with long shanked J-hooks

Redfish fishing has still been a little
tougher than usual with it either being

All the deeper channels around the
sound have produced good action on
trout. Rocky Channel and the Chino
Island channel have both been holding
some bigger trout on the low incoming

all the way around. These pointless no-
wake zones don t help the manatees and
really seem to be more enforced this first
month of April than at any other time so
watch out and don't get a ticket.
On a brighter note April 1 also marks

On Tuesday, April 13, Dr. Carl Safina
will discuss the state of our oceans.
Safina's lecture is sponsored by John H.
and Susan W. Freund.
Safina's childhood by the shore
launched a lifelong passion that led to
his bachelor's degree in environmental
studies at SUNY Purchase, then to sci-
entific studies of seabirds and fish for his
PhD in ecology from Rutgers University.
During his research and his recreational
and part-time commercial fishing, he
noticed rapid declines in sea turtles, mar-
lin, sharks, tunas, and many other fishes.
Safina saw fish as wildlife and brought
ocean conservation issues into the wildlife
conservation mainstream. He has helped
lead campaigns to ban high-seas driftnets,
re-write U.S. fisheries law, use interna-
tional agreements toward restoring tunas,
sharks, and other fishes, achieve a United
Nations fisheries treaty, and reduce alba-
tross and sea turtle drownings from com-
mercial fishing lines.

The BIG ARTS New Frontiers
Health and Science lecture pro-
grams began March 24 with Dr.
Waleed Abdalati, who studies high lati-
tude glaciers and ice sheets using satel-
lites and airborne instruments, as well
as ground-based data from field expedi-
He said most of today's satellites are
past their design life, living on borrowed
time. New ones will be going up but only
about half as many.
He is director of the Earth Science and
Observation Center at the University of
Colorado in Boulder. His talk was titled,
Polar Ice in a Changing Climate: Are We
Waking Sleeping Giants?
Abdalati showed many slides of the
changing ice cover, saying some of the
icebergs are as tall as the length of a
football field. The ice acts as a blanket,
a barrier flow of energy exchange to the
ocean. The ocean ice cover affects ocean
circulations, climate, atmospheric circula-
tion and weather. It reflects a lot of the
incoming solar energy from sunlight, and
when it melts it exposes a darker surface
"The weak underbelly glaciers are
speeding up, getting thinner, losing mass,
all consistent with the story of 'collapse,
which in glaciological language means a
few hundred years. Melt is going up 10
percent a decade and that is compelling.
The ice is changing much more rapidly
than our models have predicted. Arctic
sea ice has been shrinking at a rate of
three percent per decade, the thick ice
has been shrinking at a rate of 10 per-
cent per decade. Meanwhile in Antarctica
it has been growing about one percent
per decade. It' sa complicated story," he
"We used to think it took centuries for
ice to respond to warming temperatures.
Turns out it takes hours." As to green-
house gases, he said the world's ice cov-
ers are responding dramatically and the
key to our success depends on society.
He used a quote from Socrates to
explain what he does. "The earth is a
mosaic of stories. Man must rise above
the earth, the top of the atmosphere and
beyond, for only thus will he fully under-
stand the world in which he lives.
During a question and answer session,
Dr. Abdalati reassured Floridians that they
don t need to sell now. "The best projec-
tions for the next 100 years show on the
low end about half a foot of sea rise. On
the high end about five feet. Realistically
it's reasonable to expect between two to
three feet in the coming 100 years.
The next speaker is Dr. Paul Cherukuri
on Wednesday, March 31, 7:30 p.m.
at BIG ARTS. He will talk about
Nanotechnology Big Things Come In
Small Packages and how it is changing

"That is why ice is really one of the
most sensitive aspects of the climate sys-
tem. Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets
hold the equivalent of 223 feet of sea
level rise. That's not all going to melt into
the sea tomorrow and cause oceans to
rise catastrophically, but the question is
how much is flowing into the sea causing
our oceans to rise?
For the coming centuries, he said the
high end of predictions is not off the
charts but there are areas that would be
adversely affected. He showed a slide of
Florida featuring outlying areas that would
be affected by a meter of sea level rise.
"Over the last 15,000 years, sea levels
have been going up by about three and a
half millimeters a year, not much until you
add it up over time. In 50 years it really
starts to matter. Eighteen thousand years
ago oceans were 120,000 meters lower
which absorbs the sunlight, causing the
surface to heat up, causing more ice to
melt and more energy to be absorbed.

Shaffer is a self-taught textile artist
specializing in fine art batik, a focused
method of applying dye to fabric, usu-
ally cotton or silk. Batik is the reverse
of painting. Instead of painting an area
where you wish there to be color or a
design on a piece of fabric, wax is applied
to the area to keep it color free. The fab-
ric is then immersed in dye, coloring all
the areas of the fabric that are wax free.

A scene from Good by Edison State College Theatre
to Switzerland. Halder is drawn to Freddie (Eli Johnson) an SS officer who finally con-
vinces him to join the party. He leaves his wife Helen (Lisa Kuchinski) for one of his
students, Anne (Caren Zarpelon). He also lets his mother (Rebekah Smith), who has
dementia, become a victim of the system.
There is a lot of music in the play. Director Brown told me he considers the perfor-
mance a play with music, rather than being a musical. He said, "Through this experi-
ence the students internalized a piece of history that they might have studied before,
but they now have insights into the society that they could not ever approach without
this kind of experience.
Brown selected the play to coincide with Holocaust observance at the school. It was
a collaborative effort with the music department.
Director Dale Hoover provided a quartet of musicians to accompany the singers
and also provide background music. Several of the singers gave stand-out performanc-
es, this included Connor Zerilla, Eli Johnson, Lisa Sidoran and Shadoe Valentin. When
the cast sang the Drinking Song from The Student Prince, I almost joined them. It s
one of my favorites.
Hitler was played by Abigail Smith in a Charlie Chaplin fashion. Justin Ramos
played both Eichmann and a doctor. Others in the cast were Tiffany Smith, Cristian
Corrales, Jerome Joseph, Amanda Fife, Malyssa Grose and Rachel Ferrera. My hat is
off to the entire cast.

Tphe production Good, by C.P. Taylor, played at Edison State College March
S18-28. It was one of the most powerful plays I have ever seen.
SThe fact that it was put together by college students totally amazed me. This
is a challenging play in the hands of the most experienced actors. The focus of the
play is how people who consider themselves good could be swept into the furor of the
Nazi movement and soon believe that they are doing the right thing. It reveals how the
Nazis approached the 30- and 40-year old decision makers of Germany.
Directed by Stuart Brown, professor of theater at Edison, the play follows Professor
John Halder, played so well by Andy Francis. He is transformed from someone who
thinks the whole Nazi anti-Jew mentality will go away, to someone who thinks perhaps
the Jews are at fault. His best friend is Jewish. Maurice (Connor Zerilla) keeps telling
him that it's a serious situation and begs him, to no avail, to provide his family passage

Herbert and Dorothy Vogel met at
a dance in 1960, married and began
collecting art with money they saved
from his job as a postal worker and
hers as a librarian. They began cram-
ming every available space in a small
Manhattan apartment with their shared
passion for contemporary art; works of
now renowned artists. Among them; Sol
LeWitt, Donald Judd, Richard Tuttle,
Robert Mangold, Lynda Benglis and
dozens of others found their place in
a burgeoning collection representing
Minimalist and Conceptual art.
This documentary, filmed by Megumi
Sasaki, contains interviews with the cou-
ple in their apartment and with some of
the artists whose work they collected.

extra special treat. They will take part
in one of local artist Leoma Lovegrove s
interactive, multimedia art projects
called Painting Out Loud. During the
exhibition, Bridge kids will dress in dis-
posable paint suits and throw paint onto
a giant canvas under Lovegrove s direc-
tion. Music, lights and special effects will
add to the magic of this event.
"We are so excited about this wonder-
ful opportunity for our kids to work with
such a creative and well-known local
artist. Leoma s willingness to come and
mentor local youth is so inspiring and
very much appreciated by both the staff
and the kids," says Melissa Terry, direc-

Author Steve Rajtar continues
his research into the history of
Florida with his photographically
spectacular new book Historic Photos

ously bound book would grace any cof-
fee table but it is so very much more
Rajtar, now an attorney, grew up in
Ohio and became enamored of Florida
and its history during his student days at
the University of Central Florida and the
University of Florida. As a historian he
has written over 20 books; among those
several particularly on Florida's history.
Rajtar takes us back to even more
recent days when our travel horizons
extended past the confines of coastal
resorts and I-75. A time when we would
often venture down back roads through
some of these now deserted crossroads
and tumbledown post offices to swamp
cabbage festivals, rodeos, county fairs,
and would buy our Plant City strawber-

Stephanie See with the Island Sun's
graphic arts department said it best,
"The photos are magnificent and tell the
story of the past almost without saying a
word. As a young native to Florida I am
intrigued by the past of my home state.
But what makes the book a treasure
trove of our state's past is the historical
research and well written text by Rajtar.
He clearly describes the settlements
shown in the photos, their origins and
their ultimate destinies. Particularly illu-
minating is the chapter Blame It On The
Railroad. He writes, "In the opinion of
many, the construction of railroad lines
was the most important factor in the set-
tlement of Florida. Large portions of the
peninsula were located too far inland to
be reached by boats, and until the arrival
of the railroads, they were essentially ina-

director David Lean, who worked on a plethora of highly successful films of
varying genres, both in the UK and Hollywood, over the course of a long career.
Summertime, starring Katharine Hepburn, will be shown at 1 p.m. Wednesday,
April 7. Shot on location in Venice, Summertime is a variant on Lean s middle-aged
romance theme. An American tourist lacking romantic experience, Jane is insatiably
vulnerable to the lush beauty of Italy. She is charmed by a handsome Italian man. So
intoxicated is Jane by their whirlwind affair that she is reluctant to relinquish her new
love, even after discovering that he is married and has a family. A touching perfor-
mance by Hepburn and stunning Technicolor scenes of Venice make this a favorite for
film buffs. Lean was nominated for a Best Director Oscar for this classic. Admission is

town. The town suddenly comes alive as
two best friends, local merchant Mariah
Linley and island psychic Moonbeam, find
themselves in the middle of some pretty
strange business. When their friend, a
popular elderly boat captain, does not

find out what really happened. As events
begin to unfold, the two novice sleuths
are drawn into a web of murder, decep-
tion and drugs that stretches as far west
as Mexico and as far south as the Keys.

World War II was the most destructive
war in history and caused the greatest dis-
location of cultural artifacts. Hundreds of
thousands of items remain missing. The
main burden fell to a few hundred men and
women, curators and archivists, artists and
art historians from 13 nations. Their task
was to save and preserve what they could
of Europe's great art, and they were called
the Monuments Men. Edsel has presented
their achievements in documentaries and
photographs. He and Witter (co-author of
the bestselling Dewuey) are no less success-
ful here. Focusing on the organization's
role in northwest Europe, they describe the
Monuments Men from their initial mission
to limit combat damage to structures and
artifacts to their changed focus of locating
missing items. Most had been stolen by the
Nazis. In southern Germany alone, over a thousand caches emerged, containing every-
thing from church bells to insect collections. The story is both engaging and inspiring.
In the midst of a total war, armies systematically sought to mitigate cultural loss.
The Fiction Book Discussion Group will meet on Wednesday, April 28 at 2 p.m.
to discuss Bleeding Kansas by Sara Paretsky. The story revolves around wo families,
linked by their midwestern pioneer pasts and dark family secrets, threaten to be torn
apart when the son of one of the families is killed in Iraq.#

Mets giving high fives to the opposing team at the end of a game
Little League Highlights
submitted by Eric Pfeifer
Sanibel-Captiva Little League is well under way and approximately 170 kids are
playing ball at the fields. Thirty kids are playing tee ball every Saturday morn-
Sing at 9 a.m. This is our feeder system for the older leagues, so we encourage
all four- and five-year-olds to come out even if they haven't already signed up.
The Minor League Boys division has four teams: Pirates, Red Sox, Cubs and Mets.
The returning champs from last year, Mets, have gotten off to a strong start, but a
couple of teams are hot on their trail. These guys play Friday nights at 6 p.m. under
the lights. The Minor League Girls have only two teams this year, the Thunder and
Heat. Maybe we would have had more girls sign up if they knew they would be wear-
ing the newest and coolest sleeveless uniforms. The girls play Saturday mornings at 9
In the Major League division, the girls have four very competitive teams. Last year,
the girls all finished within one game of each other, and this year looks like we will
have a similar situation. The Dodgers are in the lead, but the Mets, Phillies and Blue
Jays could catch up by the end of next week. Come watch the girls play Tuesday
nights at 6 p.m. The boys have two very strong teams this year, so the Angels and
Red Sox are locked up at 3-3 each. We have a plethora of strong pitchers this year
with Taylor Williams and Thomas Coyne leading the Sox while Joey Aulino, Dylan
Reel and Nick Atkinson share time on the mound for the Angels. You can watch these
great hurlers play Tuesday nights at 6 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.
As always, none of this could be possible without the coaches and sponsors.
Thanks to all of you who are making Little League possible on Sanibel. Play ball!M

Annual meetings are usu-

Association Cocktail and Awards Night!
The Beachview Steakhouse dining room
was overflowing with a genial crowd of
golfers and wives, an assortment of deli-

vided by Carrie Dillis and her staff, and
a busy bar in the corner.
President Bill Fellows stood up and
complimented Dillis for her food and

chairs were recognized for their hard

P.S. Rain or shine, good round or bad,
you can always count on a friendly hello
and a big smile from Bill Blankenship. An
Indiana farmer until he retired three years
ago at the age of 79, Blankenship spent
his first winter on Sanibel in 1977 and
became a founding Beachview member
that same year when the course was built.
He says there was no clubhouse at that
time, just nine holes in play, and golfers
had their choice of 12 pull carts. He's
still an active and competitive golfer who
can hit the long ball and get up and down
around the greens. He and his old friend
Doral Luce enjoyed fishing the waters
around Sanibel together for many years,
and they used to catch and clean enough
fish to feed the whole club at the annual
Beachview Fish Fry. He s been married
to his wife Thelma for 61 years and has
three daughters, one son, 12 grandchil-
dren and six greats.#

The Butler Bulldogs Are The Real-Life
Version Of The Movie Hoosiers
by Ed Frank
est sports movie ever made. A true-to-life version of that
famous film unfolds this weekend in Indianapolis just six
miles from where that movie was filmed when the upstart,
~underdog, never-say-die Butler Bulldogs vie for college basket-
ball's national championship.
For the first time in Butler's history, their road to the Final
Nod Fou dSrcs ndte assSaeaN.2se.or was completed last weekend when they first knocked off
In actuality, how-
ever, that road for the
Bulldogs, winners of 24 straight games,
the longest in the nation, is from their
ancient home court on the north side of
Indianapolis to the brand new Lucas Oil
Stadium in downtown Indianapolis where
the NCAA championship will be played.
In case you don't know, the film
Hoosiers, starring Gene Hackman, por-
trayed a tiny school, Hickory High, defeat-
ing a large South Bend high school on a
last-second shot by the fictional character
Jimmy Chitwood. N
Don't be surprised if the script writers
already are at work penning a new version
of Hoosiers, this time comparing Butler s
amazing hometown run to the Final Four
to the original 24-year-old film epic.
The images are indeed similar in so
Hoosiers was filmed in the Hinkle
Field House, originally called the Butler
Fieldhouse. Built in 1928, this basket-
ball relic remains today the home of the
Bulldogs. In 1966, it was renamed in
honor of Butler's legendary coach and ath-
letic director Paul D "Tony" Hinkle.
This classic facility has withstood the
test of time maintaining the character
and atmosphere that made it one of the
nation's most famous basketball arenas
mohith od' lsc tec da hroics in
Hoosiers draws comparison to Butler's
silky-smooth forward Gordon Haywood,
who scored a game-winner in the final
seconds to earn Brownsburg High School
the Indiana State Championship two years
While the Bulldogs are compared as
the college version of Hickoly High (10
players are from Indiana), the fact is their
young coach Brad Stevens is amazing and
Butler is for real. They were undefeated
in Horizon League play and haven't lost
a game since December 22, 2009, when
they fell on the road to UAB.
Other Interesting Bulldog Tidbits
Butler is 15-0 this season in games
played in Indianapolis.
Butler is the smallest school, enrollment
4,438, to reach the Final Four since seed-
ing began in 1979.
Butler is the first team to reach the Final
Four in their home city since way back in
1972 when UCLA won the title.
At 33, Stevens is the youngest coach
ever to take a team to the Final Four sur-
passing Bob Knight for that honor.
A Final Four ticket has always been one
of the toughest to land. Now with Butler's
hometown ride to the Final Four, the scalp-
ers and the ticket brokers have a bonanza.

Sanibel Grill Rec 'N' Crew
by Nick Brown
Tphe air was full of electricity last Thursday night when Sanctuary Island Electric
Sand the Great White Grill sparred on the Sanibel ball fields.
SThis is one of the oldest rivalries in Sanibel Softball history these two teams
have met 18 times over the past three years. Before this game, Great White held a
slight two-game lead in the series. However, Sanctuary Electric came into the game
energized thanks to team spark plug Joey Gill. "I had to use shock therapy to charge
my team up," commented Gill.
Whatever the method used, it was effective because Sanctuary Electric stunned
Great White Grill in a narrow 12-9 victory.
In the other games: Sanibel Grill Rec'N'Crew bulldozed over All Island Glass in a
13-4 win. The Lazy Flamingo flocked over Royal Shell 22-13 and Aztec Plumbing
strengthened their first place position with an impressive 25-13 win against the
Sundial. Sundial star Frank Graham Jr. said, "That game was a real clogger.

A Hodge Podge
Of Home Tips
by Bryan Hayes
-"s- Jhome for
More than a day
-or two, turn off the
IJ main water to your
home. The dam-
.7) age that a leakigp o using
hot water heater
can do to a home
can be devastating. Please note: when
turning the water off in preparation for
your departure, make sure to turn off
the breaker that feeds the water heater
as well to avoid any damage to the heat-
*Clean those fridge coils. Doing this
will cut down on energy use, heat added
to your home and extend the life of your
appliance. This should be done every
couple of months. Check out YouTube,
they have some good videos on how to
*Clean the filters for your a/c. An
air conditioning filter should be cleaned
or replaced monthly during the heavy
use times and less often when only used
occasionally. To do this, looks at the filter
and see how dirty it is. A good tip is to
hold it up to light, if you can't see the
light through it, its time for a new one.
*Electrical breakers quit often. When
we receive calls in regards to part of a
home's electrical system not working,

,~ thinks their dining
room is the easiest
Sof all rooms to fur-
Snish. Once they've
.. made the decision
on their table and
chairs, they tend
to think that's all
there is to it. Not
so. While that may be one of the big-
gest decisions to be made, it's far from
You still need to consider providing for
the comfort of guests as well as the con-
venience of the hostess. I find that there
are often problems unique to this room
that make it a design challenge. With that
in mind, it does take some considerable
planning to create and design a dining
room that will take center stage in your
Chairs alone are a far from simple
choice. Massive ones take up too much
space, so it's important to search for well
designed chairs that are comfortable as
well. Don't worry about having enough
dining room chair shapes and sizes to
pick from there are so many it's bewil-
dering, unless, of course, you have pro-
Tables, too, come in all shapes and
sizes. The size should fit both the room
ande yur hm i and ideally be designed
Expandable tables, with drop leaves,
built-in extensions, and inserts/leaves are
all practical. Today's table design options
can convert from a small cozy table to
one that can be instantly enlarged when
company is expected.
The lighting above your table should
be carefully selected to assure the right
wattage and the best light direction for
the diners. The height of the chandelier is
another important decision.
It's also more convenient to have sil-
venvare, linens, and serving pieces stored
right in the room. A sideboard, or chest
will help to give you the storage you
need, and can also handle the food for a
sit down buffet. If you opt for this addi-
tional furniture piece, consider its top. It's
best for these pieces to be covered in a
moisture and stain resistant material such
as marble or tile. Other storage options
to consider are cabinets or armoires. A
very attractive unit might also become
the room's focal point an added design
You'll find it helpful to think through
the many uses of your dining room
because our modes of entertaining are
many and ever changing. Ultimately, this
means that your dining room design plan
should be one that features flexibility.
Whether you're hosting a Sunday brunch
for six or a midnight snack for 20, ver-
satility and comfort should guide you
toward the best furniture and design plan.

the breaker is tripped.
A service call may have been avoided
by following this simple procedure. Go to
your electrical panel, physically turn off
and then back on each and every breaker,
go back and check the power in the area
in question and see if that fixed the prob-
lem, More times than not a breaker will
look fine when in fact it is tripped, Please
note: shut down any computer that may
have programs open before doing this.
*Last but not least, have your air con-
ditioning serviced. Even newer systems
need some love as well. Most people
are under the impression that because a
system is new that no service is required.
This is a mechanical device with moving
parts that need regular routine service.

support from island businesses and orga-

was able to complete the landscaping of
both the causeway intersection and the
Lindgren medians by the end of 2003.
Dedicated Sanibel Beautification vol-
unteers continue to maintain these areas,
working for two hours the second and
fourth Saturdays of every month from 8
to 10 a.m. More volunteers are always
needed. No experience is required, and
no commitment is involved.
Just show up at the causeway intersec-

After receiving a positive response
from the Sanibel city manager, public
works director, and director of natural
resources a group of enthusiastic vol-
unteers met for the first time on May
30 at the Sanibel Library to discuss the
improvement of Lindgren Boulevard.
At that very first meeting the volunteers
decided that they did not want to be
a one-project committee. Instead they
wanted to form a new organization dedi-
caseddto the ongoing beautification of the
They voted to incorporate as Sanibel
Beautification, Inc., and in the next
few months they incorporated, filed for
5013C tax exempt status, created a logo,
developed a Web site, obtained a phone
line and PO box, developed a member-
ship program and brochure, a power
point presentation, presented programs
to island organizations, participated in the
city's Shared Vision Program,and worked
with the city to develop a procedure for
approval of plantings.
When these organizational were
accomplished, the group began looking
for an interim project, as the city had
scheduled Lindgren for sewer work in
At this point, Bill Blauvelt of Southern
Traditions Landscaping joined the orga-
nization and volunteered the services of
his landscape designer, Welles Jones,
to design a landscape plan for the four
corners of the causeway intersection.
Blauvelt also generously provided use of
his equipment, and the purchase of plants
and landscape materials at cost.
