A Murder Mystery i"/dr The New Frontiers Lecture Series
Musical At The

Schoolhouse
by Di Saggau

l expected to enjoy Something's
Strauss Schoolhouse Theater, but to
my delight I was overjoyed. This British
musical mystery comedy is a delight
from start to finish, a fast-paced flawless
production. The woman next to me said
it was the best thing she s seen while dl
visiting our area. - -----
Set in 1935, the show is about six
guests who are invited for the weekend
to Lord Dudley Rancour s retreat on an .i
island in the middle of a lake. As a raging.
storm washes out the bridge causing the
phones to die, so do the characters. The .- \
guests, three servants and an uninvited Rachel Miller and Kevin Rose
college student start biting the dust in Dr. Carl Safina filming Saving Our Oceans
quick fashion.

Shell Museum Earns

Highest National Honors
The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum has achieved accreditation from the American
Association of Museums (AAM), the highest national recognition for a museum.
Accreditation signifies excellence to the museum community, to governments,
funders, outside agencies, and to the museum-going public.
AAM accreditation is the field s primary vehicle for quality assurance, self-regulation,
and public accountability, and earns national recognition for a museum for its com-
mitment to excellence in all that it does: governance, collections stewardship, public
programs, financial stability, high professional standards, and continued institutional
improvement. Developed and sustained by museum professionals for 35 years, AAM s
Museum Accreditation program strengthens the profession by promoting practices that
enable leaders to make informed decisions, allocate resources wisely, and to provide
the best possible service to the public.
"The accreditation process and affirmative result demonstrate the commitment
of a relatively young institution to professionalism and the highest standards in the
museum field. Preparation was labor-intensive for the staff and board. However, their
dedication to the process over the last three years has positioned the museum well to
compete for shrinking corporate, individual, and grant funding. But, most of all, the
self-evaluation and protocol development that led to this stamp of approval helped us
to become a much better institution," said Dr. Jos& H. Leal, director/curator for The
Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum.
Of the nation s estimated 17,500 museums, 775 are currently accredited. The
Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum is one of only 48 museums accredited in Florida.
"Accreditation assures the people of Lee County that their museum is among the
finest in the nation," said Ford W. Bell, president of AAM. "As a result, the citizens

Sanibel Historical Museum And Village

Docent Profile:

Dale van Haase
by Ray Buck

Docent Dale van Haase was an
before retirement and island life,
but he has a down-to-earth preference
for the Burnap Cottage at the Sanibel
Historical Museum and Village and all
the wonders it contains for visitors.
Why does Dale like the Burnap
Cottage?
For many of the same reasons I do.
The Burnap Cottage provides the
docent guide with an opportunity to talk
about many island things:
*The lighthouse that sank offshore
an Tahdetoprt fsf ren and the guides
in the early days.
*The SS Algiers (including letting visi-
tors ring its bell).
*The itinerant preacher who came
across the bay to use the cottage for his
services and left behind his little organ
(still there).
*The photo showing the cottage on a
barge and showing how it made its way
from the bay to the village.
Dale says he enjoys meeting people
from all over the world. "I've traveled
some myself and often know something
about where a visitor is from. That can
help put things into perspective for
them."

Captiva Beach
Re nourishment

Meeting
The restoration of beaches can be
a misunderstood subject. At a spe-
cial town hall meeting, the Captiva
Erosion Prevention District (CEPD) filled
the meeting room at 'Tween Waters Inn
with island residents to discuss the issue
of beach nourishment and the Blind
Pass Restoration Project.
According to guest speaker and Senior
Coastal Engineer Steve Keehn, erosion
on Captiva beaches has been attributable
to storm damage and to the opening of
Redfish Pass in the 1920s.
About a hundred attendees viewed
pictures from the 1980s of a virtually
non-existent Captiva beach and an infra-
stnicture and habitat defenseless against
a major storm. Clearly, beaches were not
surviving when left alone.
As the audience sat in a meeting room
overlooking the beautiful Captiva beach
at 'Tween Waters Inn, CEPD Senior
Consultant Kathy Rooker cautioned
everyone not to take the current state
of Captiva beaches for granted. CEPD
Commissioners Doris Holzheimer and
Mike Mullins then spoke about results of
the engineering solution to the erosion
problem, beach renourishment, which
imitates nature by bringing beach quality
sand by dredge and pipeline to restore
critically eroding beaches.
Pursuant to the Florida Beach and
Shore Presewvation Act, the CEPD has
managed three renourishment projects
on Captiva since 1986.
CEPD Chairman Mike Mullins spoke
about a U.S. Supreme Court case that
may pose a threat to Florida's beach
management program and the future of
beach nourishment projects.
A referendum enabling the CEPD
to borrow funds for the next renourish-
ment project is set for November 2.
Commissioners encouraged the public to
exercise thi rigDt pd vtofaurl

aot t B ind ns sRebs raticon sPp ect.
Neal displayed a stability curve of the
pass and indicated that the opened pass
remains stable. Neal indicated that moni-
toring of the pass will need to be a con-
tinuing process. The next monitoring is

How To Care For
Coconut Palms

Damaged By The
Cold Weather
Along Sanibel's roadsides, at parks
and in residential yards, the
Impacts of the extended period of
cold weather this winter to the tropical
coconut palm can be observed.
Most of these trees are damaged
but will survive. City of Sanibel Natural
Resource Director Robert Loflin advises
property owners that if there are even
small areas of green on any fronds at the
top center of the tree, the palm has a
good chance to recover. The dead fronds
on these trees can be trimmed safely
without causing further damage to the
tree only if none of the fronds with any
green remaining are cut or trimmed.
If there is no green whatsoever on any
frond, then the tree is dead and should
be removed if located in a place where it
could injure someone or damage a struc-
ture or vehicle if it falls.
This cold weather damage to coconut
palms should not be confused with lethal
yellowing disease and there is no need to
inject the tree to treat this.
Lethal yellowing is a bacterial disease
spread by leaf hoppers that has been a
problem on the island for over 25 years.
However, all coconut trees here are now
either proven to be resistant by the fact
they survived the infestation, or are natu-
r ntyredsistant varieties that have been
plne moercnly.

The New Frontie rs

Lecture Series
Safina's childhood by the shore
launched a life-long 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 fish.
Safina saw fish as wildlife and brought
ocean conservation issues into the wild-
life conservation mainstream. He has
helped lead campaigns to ban high-seas
driftnets, re-write U.S. fisheries law, use
international agreements toward restoring
tunas, sharks, and other species, achieve
a United Nations fisheries treaty, and
reduce albatross and sea turtle drownings
from commercial fishing lines.
Safina co-founded Blue Ocean Institute
in 2003. He now works mainly to help
highlight and explain how the ocean is
changing and what that means for wildlife
and for people. He is author of more
than one hundred publications. His most
recent book, Voyage of the Turtle, fol-
lows the struggles of the ocean's ancient
leatherbacks and other sea turtles.
He was inspired to write the book
when he saw sea turtles laying eggs for
the first time. He said, "I had seen them
in the ocean a number of times and they
always struck me as extremely graceful
and just really lovely. There is something
about the magisterial slowness of their
movements, and many of them get to
be rather old, so they seem like vener-
able citizens of the deep. I thought that
it would be nice to follow them around,
write a book about how the oceans are
changing sort of through the eyes of sea
turtles.
His prime goal, he has said, is to
develop a "sea ethic" similar to the land
ethic of Aldo Leopold, and a scattering
of success stories has convinced him
that a balance is still possible between
exploitation and conservation of marine
resources. Safina is also working on the
development of a public television series,
Saving the Ocean.
His conservation work has been
profiled in the Newu York Times, on
Nightline, and in the Bill Moyers televi-
sion special Earth on Edge. He is a
recipient of the Pew Scholars Award in
Conservation and the Environment, the
Lannan Literary Award for nonfiction,
the John Burroughs Medal for literature,
the National Academies Communications
Award, and a MacArthur Prize. Safina
is an adjunct professor at SUNY's Stony
Brook University.
BIG ARTS science and health lecture
series continues Sunday, April 18, with
Dr. Irving Weissman, who will speak
on the topic of advances in stem cell
research.M

guests and last Friday morning's
speaker was a member of our
extended Rotary family here on Sanibel.
Sanibel-Captiva Rotarian Dr. Richard
Salerno invited his son Kirby Salerno,
senior director of Outside the Classroom
Needam, MA to speak on the topic of
The Forgotten Epidemic of College...
Binge Drinking. For nearly 10 years
now, Outside the Classroom has under-
taken the task of alcohol prevention on
college campuses by developing educa-
tional tools for the academic environ-
ment.


Kirby brought along with him a brief
slide show and I think the first slide was
a Higher Education Memorial List, name
after name of young college students who
died of alcohol related deaths on campus.
This particular list was only of students
who were found dead in their beds,
alcohol-poisoning victims. This amazing
statistic will surprise you there has been
something like a 40 percent rise in heavy
drinking on college campuses from 1979
to the present.
Here are some more sad statistics
from Kirby: 1,825 college students die
each year from alcohol-related injuries;
approximately 600,000 students are
injured from alcohol-related activities;
approximately 696,000 student assaults
are alcohol-related; 97,000 students are
victims of alcohol-related sexual assault or
date rape; and 2.1 million students drive


puses has been somewhat replaced by
the "party on" mentality, and 20 percent
of college students are high-risk drinkers.
College administrators are now taking
notice and taking active steps to educate
themselves as well as their students.
Many schools are finally addressing this
issue and are now including mandatory
alcohol-drug prevention classes for their
students. Along with mandatory educa-
tion comes accountable action by school
administrators. The president at a former
party school, University of Rhode Island,
banned alcohol on campus. Alumni were
not in favor of this action at first, but
this has eventually led to better quality
students applying to the university, admis-
sion application numbers are up, and
alumni giving has increased. Great for the
students, great for the school.
Outside the Classroom focuses on
changing the college administration mind
set. They provide information and mate-
rial needed to educate themselves and
their student body. This issue should be a
priority on all campuses; everyone has a
role to play including parents of incoming
freshmen. Ask questions of your college
administrators and recruiters regarding
alcohol policies on campus. Prevention is
the key. You do not want your student to
be part of an alcohol related statistic.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club
meets at 7 a.m. Friday at Beachview
Steakhouse. If you have any questions
regarding Rotary, call 337-1099.4

under the influence of alcohol. These
numbers do not include other alcohol
related problems such as unsafe sex,
academic problems, vandalism, property
damage, and on and on.
Kirby made an interesting point; binge
drinking does not necessarily start at our
high school level but starts early on in
the college experience. The emphasis
on academic education on college cam-

suffering amputations due to injuries are
now ready for prosthetic limb fittings.
Various prosthetics companies around the

assistance devices still remains, however,
and those with leg injuries or amputations
are completely dependent on others for

service will focus on the contributions
made by all those who, over the past
150 years, have made Captiva Island
the special place and community that it
is today.
From the earliest times of pre-history,
the Calusa indians built a barrier island
empire that hearty land-stake pioneers
later developed as a farming and fishing
center, and passed on to modern times,
in which we have seen the recent emer-
gence of a spectacular vacation resort and
leisure spot for thousands from all over

that possible leaders and builders, ras-
cals and mavericks. All will be honored
and recognized for their part in shaping
the goodly heritage that is now ours to
claim.
Special guests will include community
leaders, commercial and property own-

will be appreciated for the good work
that they do for us all. At a service-ending

can take considerable pride in their home-
grown institution, for its commitment to
excellence and for the value it brings to the
community.
Accreditation is a rigorous process that
examines all aspects of a museum's opera-
tions. To earn accreditation, a museum
first must conduct a year of self-study,
and then undergo a site visit by a team r
of peer reviewers. AAM's Accreditation
Commission, an independent and autono-
mous body of museum professionals,
review and evaluate the self-study and visit-
ing committee report to determine whether
a museum should receive accreditation.
While the time to complete the process
varies by museum, it generally takes three
years.
Established in 1995, The Bailey-
Matthews Shell Museum is the most
comprehensive museum in the Western
Hemisphere dedicated solely to shells with
over 30 exhibits devoted to shells in art and Jose H. Leal, director/curator of The Bailey-
history, shell habitats, rare specimens, fos- Matthews Shell Museum
sil shells, and common Southwest Florida
shells. A children's learning lab features a hands-on play area and a "live tank" with
indigenous mollusks.
Check the museum Web site (www.shellmuseum.org) for a complete listing of
weekly demonstrations and workshops, craft classes, beach walks, group tours, chil-
dren's camps, and special events. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Admission is $7 for adults age 17 and up, $4 for youth five to 16 years of age and
children four and under are free. The museum is located at 3075 Sanibel-Captiva
Road, on Sanibel Island. For additional information call 395-2233.
The American Association of Museums has been bringing museums together since
1906, helping to develop standards and best practices, gathering and sharing knowl-
edge, and providing advocacy on issues of concern to the entire museum community.
With more than 15,000 individual, 3,000 institutional, and 300 corporate mem-
bers, AAM is dedicated to ensuring that museums remain a vital part of the American
landscape, connecting people with the greatest achievements of the human experi-
ence, past, present and future. For more information, visit www.aam-us.org.M

Periwinkle Way vegetation and the famous tree canopy was destroyed.


submitted by the Periwinkle Partnership
On August 13, 2004, Sanibel was dev-
astated by Hurricane Charlie. Winds in
excess of 150 miles per hour toppled
the majestic Australian pines, which had pro-
vided a lacy canopy above Periwinkle Way, and
left the entire roadway in shambles..
Immediately after the storm, Sanibel
Beautification joined with the Sanibel Captiva
Chamber of Commerce and the Sanibel
Captiva Conservation Foundation to form the
Periwinkle Partnership with the goal of assist-
ing the city with the restoration of vegetation on


Because Sanibel Beautification was already registered as a non-profit, it was
determined that the restoration effort should be organized as a project of Sanibel
Beautification. To implement the project, a board of directors was formed includ-
ing representatives of many community organizations including Lion's Club, realtors,
Master Gardeners and city staff.
The city chose the landscape design company of Vanasse Daylor, with designer
Bob Mitchell, to plan the restoration of Periwinkle Way. Community workshops were
held to gather suggestions and input from residents.
The Periwinkle Partnership developed a fundraising campaign, and successfully
applied for a matching funds grant from Lee County. It was especially gratifying that a
large portion of the contributions came from non-residents who love Sanibel but are

suggested at the community workshops.
At the completion of the project, a
celebration was held to thank the com-
munity forits support, and a bronze
plaque mounted on stone was dedicated
in the garden at The Community House.
The largest of the gardens contains 29
different varieties of native plants, trees,
shrubs, and grasses which have been
identified with signage giving the names
of plants and their function in the eco-
system. Members of the Master Gardners
are available to give informational tours
of the garden upon request, and local
school children have been given such

tounibel is well known for its popu-
lat system of shared use paths and the
Periwinkle Project has added immensely
to the comfort, convenience, and beauty
of these areas. The system of garden/rest
areas created by the Periwinkle Project
will eventually be included on maps and
brochures at the Chamber of Commerce
and at bike rental businesses.
The familiar and beloved vegetation
and towering trees are gone forever from
Periwinkle Way, but they were invasive
non-natives which crowded out native
plants. They have now been replaced
with native trees and plants which will
provide habitat for wildlife, birds, and
insects, and will better able to withstand
future storms.
It is gratifying to know that the plant-
ings of the Periwinkle Project are thriving,
that people are using and enjoying them,
and that they will only grow more beauti-
ful with time.#


Giant Australian pines fell like tinker toys blocking the roadway for days


not fortunate enough to live here.
The city also was the recipient of
grants to aid in the replacement of trees.
The Department of Forestry and Lee
County grants enabled the planting of
7,500 trees, but limited the size to 15
gallons, so the Periwinkle Partnership
was able to augment their plantings with
some larger trees to help replace the
Periwinkle canopy sooner.
The project underwent many revisions
as issues such as safety concerns along
the shared use path, relocation of utili-
ties, and drainage problems had to be
resolved. The original plans were modi-
fied which would have had 16 gardens
with distinctive intersection plantings, to
a plan with nine garden/rest areas, one
larger native plant demonstration garden


and understory planting for the many
trees the city planted along Periwinkle
Way. All of the plant materials used are
native, as required by the City of Sanibel.
The community responded with amaz-
ing support as volunteers turned out
to do the planting. There were serious
concerns after planting due to a severe
drought and the expenses and logistics of
watering the establish the plants. There
was also an infestation of scale which
caused additional concern. At this time,
however, we are pleased to report a 97
percent survival rate for our plantings.
The garden rest areas contain
benches, bike racks, picnic tables, trash
receptacles, or three-tiered fountains
which accommodate adults, children,

Brown out of Fish Tale Marina on Estero
Island. Campell will speak first and give
the club an update on the proposed
nine-square-mile marine protected zone
(MPZ) Lee County is currently planning.
The zone will provide a catch-free habitat
wherein scientists can study the natural
biology of grouper, snapper and pelagic
gulf fish to better understand their behav-
ior and growth patterns.
Marine protected zones are a growing
trend throughout the world, with New
Zealand currently boasting more than two
dozen of them.
Immediately following Campbell s
presentation will be a back bay angling
demonstration by Capt. Brown, who
has been fishing since he was a boy. He
relocated to Florida 15 years ago, and
has been fishing Estero Bay for over 10
years. He has been a part of several fish-
ing tournament circuits, making a name
for himself with Team of the Year in the
local Fa ts Masr Selivs or e 200n8t

daily adventure. As he often says, "I love
heading off to 'the office!" For anglers
interested in honing their skills on inshore
angling, this will be a presentation not to
be missed.
The Sanibel Island Fishing Club meets
monthly through season and sponsors
several group outings as well as lending
support for various fishing related chari-
ties and organizations such as START,
PURRE and the Sanibel Sea School. For

G rowing Cattleyas will be the
S-topic of the Monday, April 19
~meeting of the Sanibel-Captiva
Orchid Society. Lee Behrhorst, owner
of Sundance Orchids in Fort Myers'
will discuss these popular orchids and
their care during the presentation at St.
Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church,
2304 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel.
Behrhorst became interested in
orchids when he and his wife first
moved to Fort Myers 12 years ago from
Pittsburgh. An avid gardener, he found
little outlet for his green thumb in his
Southwest Florida community. He began
dabbling in orchid culture and soon his
collection grew to over 700 plants.
Needing room for his collection,
Behrhorst found a dilapidated greenhouse
in 2001, renovated it and Sundance
Orchids was born. The business has
grown from its original three greenhouses
with a few thousand orchids to six green-
houses with over 25,000 orchids, as
well as a large variety of tillandsias and
bromeliads.
Novices are encouraged to attend
the meeting at 1 p.m. to listen to Tom
Uhler, the society s vice president, discuss
Fungicides and Pesticides the Good, the
Bad and the Really Ugly".
Participants are also encouraged to
come early to purchase plants or to do so
during intermission. Anyone with ques-
tions or an "ill orchid" that needs diagno-
sis can bring their plants to the meeting
during Show and Tell.
Orchid Society members are invited to
participate in a monthly show. Ribbons
are awarded for best hybrid and best spe-
cies orchids. Members and guests are also
invited to participate in a monthly raffle.
Society membership is $20 annually,
admission for guests is $4.4

see open-mouth breathing by a bird, you
need to stop treatment right away," said
Dr. PJ.
Dr. PJ saw the bird the next morning
and offered him a fish, which he con-
sumed on the spot. His eyes were bright,
and she could tell that he had refreshed
himself with water from a bowl. He ate
fish throughout the first day.
Staff monitored him for signs of
internal injuries, which fortunately never
appeared. "We put a perch in his cage,
and he exhibited typical baby behavior,
said Dr. PJ. "He would get up on the
perch for a short period of time, then lay
down on his chest."
Within a few days the eaglet was
powering down 16 herring, one chick
and four mice per day. He was happy to
sit quietly in his cage, and the staff rarely
heard any rustling or vocalization.
On March 4, however, he became "a
bit agitated" so staff moved him outdoors
to the 40-foot small-flight cage. Here he
had a choice between a perch and an
enclosed wooden nesting area. He started
off spending most of his days lying in the
shelter of the nest, but came out to the
perch in incrementally larger amounts of


time.
On March 25, the eaglet earned a
transfer to the large-flight cage. In a short
time he was making impressive flights
from front to back.
Cat Turner, CROW's senior rehabilita-
tor, returned the eagle to Devonwood on
April 1. When she opened the carrier,
he did not zoom for daylight. In fact, he
stood perfectly still for a while. Cat began
to disassemble the cage so he could
simply fly straight up, but just as she was
about to finish he walked out of the car-
rier onto the grass.
The bird's sibling peered at him from
the nest, and within a minute or two an
adult swooped onto a nearby branch,
chatting with the youngster.
The eagle made a flight toward the
nest, but the angle of ascension was too
extreme and he dropped into a bush.
"He was able to catch one foot on
a branch, and then hung upside down,
like he had in the flight cage," said Cat.
"Flying is like riding a bike, it takes a
while to get it right."
Cat backed away from the scene and
the eagle subsequently made a successful
return to the nest.

Stanford University's Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, one
of the nation's top stem cell programs.
Weissman has directed the institute since its founding, providing vision and leader-
ship to build one of the nation's top stem cell programs. In 1988, Weissman became
the first to isolate in pure form any stem cell in any species when he isolated the
hematopoietic or blood-forming stem cell in mice. His work has opened up an entirely
new area of scientific research with enormous potential for life-saving therapies.
Weissman recently made an exciting step toward the goal of transplanting adult
stem cells to create a new immune system for people with autoimmune or genetic
blood diseases. As published in the November 2007 issue of Science, his lab found a
novel way to transplant new blood-forming stem cells into the bone marrow of mice
without the tissue-damaging radiation or chemotherapy usually required, thereby effec-
tively replacing their immune systems. Many aspects of this technique will need to be
adapted before it can be tested in humans, but when those barriers are surmounted,

Traditionally the play opens with the
King of Navarre and three noble compan-
ions taking an oath to devote themselves
to three years of study, promising not
to give in to the company of women.
However, the king and his men comically
fall in love with a princess and her three
ladies.
The main story is assisted by many
other humorous sub-plots. At the end of
this play within the play, there is a bitter


twist in the story, providing an unusual
ending for Shakespearian and Elizabethan
comedies.
Loete said that at least half of his stu-
dents, at this point, are thinking about
being Broadway bound. Even if they
don't, theater offers so much. "Any
career you could imagine, theater is going
to prepare you. Be it lawyer, doctor, tile
craftsman, or construction, theater is a
living art that encompasses everything."


He said his favorite thing to hear follow-
ing a performance is when audiences say
they can't believe that was a high school
group, and he hears that a lot.
If you have not yet experienced the-
ater at BIG ARTS, this is the perfect
opportunity. Tickets for Love's Labour's
Lost are only $10 for adults, $5 for
students. Call BIG ARTS at 395-0900

Shakespeare

thought of as Shakespeare's most
flamboyantly intellectual play. It
contains sophisticated word play, puns,
literary allusions and clever contempo-
rary poetic forms. Cypress Lake High
School Center for the Arts will present
this play at BIG ARTS on Saturday,
April 17, 7:30 p.m., in Schein Hall. It's
an OnStage presentation. Head of the
theater department at Cypress Lake,
Jason Loete, said he thinks this work
has more tongue-in-cheek humor and
innuendo than most of Shakespeare's
works.
His students will put a different twist in
their production and it sounds quite inter-
esting. "We are taking the play and set-
ting it in the early '60s. Part of the inspi-
ration is TV's Mad Men. I was inspired
by the sexism of the show because there
is also a lot of sexism in Loves, Labour's
Lost. It's set up that men do this and
women do that and it's got all those
devices that shake things up. In one case
it comes down to what woman is wearing
which bracelet. The guy's a fool because
the girls have exchanged a bracelet.
Loete said the students have had the-
ater history which has brought them up
through the works of Shakespeare. "They
aren't afraid, which makes me happy.
Many kids are afraid of Shakespeare.
These kids are able to jump right in and
say they can conquer t~his."

ISLAND SUN APRIL 9, 2010 25


was on fire with almost as many redfish
out there as you would see in the fall.
Most of the reds we caught were in the
slot with a few bigger ones up in the
30-inch class in the same areas. The
schools of reds were so thick on certain
mangrove points they could not all hide
under the shade. Schools of 20 to 50 fish
were common.
The key to getting these reds to eat
is being there at the right time. The last
hour or so of the incoming tide and the
first part of the falling tide is when they
have been feeding. Most of this water
around these northern keys is so shallow
that you can only get in when the tide is
up anyway. It's great to see the cold had
no effect on our redfish population at
all. Any mangrove key north of Demiere
Key is worth checking out as odds are it's
holding redfish.
As we get closer to spawning time
for snook, it's going to be interesting to
see how many made it through the cold
winter. With so many dead, things looked
really bleak for a while but while I was up
in Pelican Bay on Cayo Costa last week I
saw a school of a few hundred snook of
all sizes. I don't think the fish kill will be
as devastating to our snook fisher; as we
first thought but only time will tell. Sure,
we lost a lot of fish but does anyone
really know how many were here before?


During the next month, as the
snook move closer to the passes
and the beaches to spawn, we will
get a much better idea of the state
of the fishery.
This week I had a few reports of
the first tarpon of the season being
caught. Some of the first places
these fish show up every year
never change. Marker 4, the trench
between marker 18 and 22 and
Captiva Pass are usually the early
season hot spots. I did see a free-
jumping tarpon last week around
Captiva Rocks which was more
than enough for me to get my
tarpon gear ready to go. Last year
was one of the toughest tarpon
seasons I can remember for fishing
the poons in the sound; hopefully
this year is much better.
Bait has really showed up thick
over this last week with shiners and
pinfish now easy to catch on your
favorite bait flat. After shrimp fish-
ing all winter, it's really cool to have
a mix of baits when you head out
again. The majority of the fish I'm
catching are still on live shrimp but
any day now the fish will make the
switch over to that baitfish pattern.
It really says a lot about our fish-
ery when you see how fast things
rebound after a long cold winter.
Capt. Matt Mitchell moved to
Sanibel in 1980 and has fished
local waters for more than 25
years. He now! lives in St. James
City and has woorked as a back
country fishing guide for more
than 10 years. If you have com-

Conditions on t e

Last week we caught the highest num-

If you were looking for non-stop action

Flats from three to six feet deep near
Redfish Pass, Blind Pass and Captiva
Pass all had lots and lots of fish. Spanish

Snowy Plover Nesting Update
As of Friday, April 2, there were three
snowy plover nests with a total of six .
gg.All are on Sanibel's east end. ^4
Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation
coordinates the monitoring of snowy plover
nesting on Sanibel. These birds nest on the
beach and SCCF stakes protective exclosures
around their nests.
Please do not enter the staked exclosures
and keep dogs out, as well. When snowy Snowy plover female on her nest
plovers are not moving, they are extremely photo by Hugh McLaughlin
well camouflaged. If a snowy plover is flushed
from its nest, it takes veny little time for the hot sun to damage the eggs.
The snowy plover is a state-listed, threatened species on Sanibel. The most recent
estimate indicates that around 200 pairs remain along the west coast of Florida,
from the Panhandle through Cape Sable. Snowy plover nesting season runs through
August, and they can nest two or three times in one season.

construction of Disney caused some
home displacement for a Florida native
bird, the red tail hawk. The hawks, how-
ever, made new homes inside the Disney
Parks. Just outside one of the Disney
hotels was a popular place for couples
to have their wedding ceremonies. At
the end of the ceremonies, Disney would
release "doves" (actually pigeons) into the
air, giving a beautiful finish to the event.
Because of the displacement of the red
tail hawks, however, and the regularity of
the pigeons being released, the red tail
hawks now had a nightly routine for din-
ner -- catching the pigeons right above
a captivated wedding party. Needless to
say, this "wild" act created a horrifying
wedding event, rather than a beautiful
one. Thus Hiaasen's all-time favorite
newspaper headline came to be: "Disney
seeks homes for about 200 surviving
pigeons.
Carl Hiaasen graced Edison State
College with his humor, charm, and
environmental awareness. What a terrific
addition to our Year of the Environment!
Erin O'Brien is completing her sec-
ond creative writing class at Edison
State College and is interested in pur-
suing journalism in the future.M

Hiaasen, Author,




submitted by Erin O'Brien,
Edison State College student
ward winning, hilarious, and
a Florida native, author Carl
Hiae visited Edison State
College in Fort Myers on Thursday
March 17 sharing stories from his life,
and (surprisingly wild) experiences as an
author. Hiaasen expressed that most of
his stories are inspired by the beauty of
Florida and sometimes contain political
messages.
Edison State College has titled 2010
as The Year of the Environment; in addi-
tion, the college has a small but growing
creative writing program, so it comes as
no surprise that Hiaasen was a perfect
choice to speak for Edison students.
One of his most popular books, now a
major motion picture, is Hoot (a Newbery
Award winner). Hoot was inspired by
an event that took place when Hiaasen
was growing up in his hometown of Fort
Lauderdale. Hiaasen told his audience
that he and his friends watched as the
construction of buildings destroyed the
habitat of several Florida owls. This was
a traumatic event for a young soul and,
indeed, contributed to Hiaasen becoming
environmentally aware.
Another major motion picture that
was based on one of Hiaasen's books
was a film released in 1996 titled Strip
Tease starring Demi Moore. This story
had political undertones, the story's char-
acters were inspired by real people.
In addition to writing best-selling nov-
els, Hiaasen also writes for the Miami
Herald. It is this newspaper where
Hiaasen sees bizarre news headlines,
which he then uses as inspiration for
characters for his books.
During his presentation at ESC,
Hiaasen also made sure to stress the
importance of preserving Florida's
environment. He stated that saving the
Florida Everglades is of grave importance
-- not a money-making project. He asked
his audience, "How did we let this hap-
pen?" and stated that he "will die fighting
for Florida."
The author's side-splitting humor
never failed to shine through the entire
evening, closing with a comical story

New Commodore Of
Captiva Island Yacht Club
by Jeri Magg
Captive Island Yacht Club
(CIYC) asked its 24th com- +
Cmodore to take the helm on
March 20. Doug Morton, a native
Scotsman, is a retired vice-president
of Eli Lilly and Co. After earning
his doctorate in London, he was
lucky enough to land a position at
Eli Lilly s headquarters in England. -I;
In 1974 he was offered the posi- 4..
tion of director of research at the
Indianapolis headquarters where he
stayed until retiring in 2001. "They
sent me to the U.S. a couple of
times in the 1960s to learn the lan-
guage," he jokes, "and then decided
to let me stay longer.
Now consulting for small pharma-
ceutical firms, the new commodore
has been an active member of CIYC
for five years where he has chaired
many committees and been a member
of the board. "I ve never gone to the
club and not enjoyed myself," he said.
His wonderful sense of humor and Commodore Doug Morton
leadership skills will help him navigate
any rough seas ahead. Commodore Morton intends to concentrate on membership at
CIYC old and new. "New members are the club s future especially those living on
the islands year around.
This year, for the first time, CIYC is offering a summer membership program. The
new commodore invites anyone interested in learning more about this program or the
club in general to contact the office at 472-9627 or check out the Web site: captivais-

Th|s Wek

area, the Fort Myers Symphonic
Mastersingers will present Great
Moments in Opera which will feature
the most beloved opera choruses and
arias from familiar operas. There will
be two performances; Saturday, April
10 at 7 p.m. at Moorings Presbyterian
Church in Naples, and Sunday, April 11
at 4 p.m. at Riverside Church in Fort
Myers. Tickets are on sale now. Opera
lovers from all over the area will have
the chance to hear many of their favor-
ite selections all in one concert.
The popularity of opera in recent
years has soared with the simulcast


broadcasts of the Metropolitan Opera and
the increase in local opera companies.
"We believe anyone who loves opera
in particular and good music in general
will enjoy these performances," said Jim
George, president of the Mastersingers.
"Nothing like this has ever been done
in this area. Operas such as The Flying
Dutchman, Don Giovanni, the Magic
Flute and Carmen are among the many
operas familiar to most people and music
from them is instantly recognizable.
Opera is an art form populated by the
celebrated names of composers such as
Verdi, Bizet, Wagner, Mozart and Puccini,
among others. Many people unfamiliar
with opera may know the music but
might not know who wrote it or which
opera it comes from.
The excitement of Habenera from
Carmen, La Dona e Mobile from
Rogoleto and The Drinking Song from


Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers
La Traviata, to name a few of the selec-
tions, will offer audiences a sampling of
their favorite operas. Jeff Faux, artistic
director of the Mastersingers, will con-
duct the orchestra and chorus. "By doing
the performances concert style we can
offer a broad array of opera selections,"
Faux said. "In addition, we'll be doing all
selections in the language in which it was
written so the audience will hear Italian,
German, French and Russian. We even
included some selections from Gilbert
and Sullivan which, of course, will be in
English."
Soloists for the two performances will
be soprano Beth Wininger, mezzo sopra-
no Kathy Moffett, tenor Robert Beane


and baritone Ron Bowman.
The 70-voice Mastersingers, in its
ninth season, is comprised of experi-
enced singers from all over Southwest
Florida. Its performance of the Brahms
Requiem last season was characterized
by the Naples Daily Newus as one of the
four most memorable performances in
Southwest Florida, and a performance
with the Naples Philharmonic in October
was met with a standing ovation and criti-
cal acclaim.
Tickets for the concerts are $20. Call
770-8447 for information and or go to

Twenty-First Century Technology
Comes Alive At BIG ARTS
by Jim George

The emphasis was strictly small time last week at BIG ARTS when Dr. Paul
ogy which he defined as "the engineering of functional systems at the molecu-
lar level." In other words, small, very small.
The program was part of the currently running series New Frontiers, Health and
Science Lecture Program at BIG ARTS. Cherukuri is a scientist in the Bio X program
at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base and is also
with the Department of Surgical Oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Research Center
in Houston.
The tiny nanoparticles, a billion times smaller than a meter, are at the heart of the
possible new cancer Radio Frequency Treatment developed by islander John Kanzius
who passed away last year.

Chuck Ketteman with Dr. Paul Cherukuri at BIG ARTS


After introducing the audience of some 200 to the early development of nanopar-
ticles and describing how they interact within the cell structure of the human body,
Cherukuri described how nanoparticles work with the radio frequency technology
developed by Kanzius. He credited Kanzius with recognizing a simple concept that
escaped the attention of the scientific community as it might relate to cancer treat-
ment... that metal when exposed to high frequency radio waves tends to heat up.
Kanzius later made the connection that nanotechnology might be the key to his inven-
tion. He approached Dr. Richard Smalley at Rice University who had had received a
Nobel Prize for his development of nanoparticles. Smalley agreed to help. Over the
past three years research focused on carbon and gold nanoparticles as the target of
the radio waves.
The nanoparticles must go only to the cancer cells which means that scientists must
find molecules (or proteins) that are common to cancer cells and not to healthy cells.
Nanoparticles are then attached to those molecules common to the cancer cells and
injected intravenously into the body. This combined molecule then attaches to the
cancer cell where it is then exposed to the RF Therapy. The nanoparticles then release
heat which destroys the cancer cell
Cherukuri has been working with Dr. Steven Curley, principal researcher at MD
Anderson Research Center, on the development of the Kanzius technology. He said
cancer is the major killer in all age groups above age 35 and that most drugs are
expensive, ineffective and take decades to test. The answer is to develop new tools
such as RF technology.
Cherukuri said several minor miracles have occurred that have spurred the progress
of this potential new treatment: the development of nanoparticles, the Kanzius tech-
nology, creating target proteins to attach to nanoparticles, delivery of the combined
molecule to the tumor and the ability to direct the radio wave to the particle to destroy
the tumor.
RF Therapy could be used to treat many kinds of cancer: liver, lung, pancreatic,
prostate, kidney, thyroid, lymphoma, brain, melanoma, sarcoma, adrenal and bone.
There are also early indications that the technology might be applied to infectious dis-
eases.
Researchers are currently working with the Food and Drug Administration to obtain
approval to proceed to human clinical trials. It is expected that it will take at least three
years for approvals.Q

The Royal Ballet Company's Swan Lake
Captured live at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in High Definition,
BIG ARTS and DigiScreen/Opus Arte presents Swuan Lake performed by
CThe Royal Ballet Company, Thursday, April 15, at 7:30 p.m.
Swuan Lake is one of the best loved of all classical ballets and one of the most
popular in the Royal Ballet repertoire. It has that magical combination of Tchaikovsky's
music, a compelling story of tragic romance, and choreography that allows the very
best dancers to show just how impressive they can be.
Director Anthony Dowell's legendary production was inspired by designs of Imperial
Russia in 1895, when the ballet was first performed. Dance fans will experience the
thrill of seeing The Royal Ballet's production with its wondrous choreography, moonlit
images of ethereal swans, palace balls, and breathtaking dancing.

steve Wilkie and Susan Scott
usan Scott, who gave Billy Kirkland a good scare in Dancing with the Islands'
Stars is now going big time to compete in Las Vegas. Her partner, Steve
SWilkie and the owner of the Fred Astaire Studio in Fort Myers, approached
her at the end of the event in January and asked if she would like to continue to
dance with him. He offered her a one-day competition in West Palm or as he said,
"The most expensive and outrageous is the Nationals in Las Vegas." As she recalls
he pushed her two hot buttons expensive and fun. Outrageous she is. They depart
for Vegas next week.
Scott has been tirelessly training with Wilkie for the past 12 weeks, learning 14
dances. She will be on the dance floor 152 times. During their breaks, Wilkie is also
coaching her in blackjack.
Wilkie is the holder of many national titles and his Fort Myers studio is ranked num-
ber two in the country. Scott feels ven; fortunate to be selected by Wilkie and coached
as one of his amateur partners.
She did not succeed in bringing the Sanibel dancing trophy back to Captiva but she
hopes to bring a big trophy back from Vegas. If so Billy's Bikes will be her first stop.#

Omar Sharif and Peter O'Toole in Lawrence of Arabia
B IG ARTS presents the annual
~Director Series with film discus-
r sion led by Sanibel resident Sid
Picker. This year's series features films
by British writer/director David Lean,
who worked on a plethora of highly suc-
cessful films of varying genres over the
course of a long career.
Lawurence of Arabia will be shown
Wednesday, April 14, from 11 a.m. to 3
p.m. Considered Lean s masterpiece, this
winner of seven Oscars tells the story of
Lawrence's fabled flight-and-fight during
World War I, and brought Peter O'Toole
to stardom. This film has been called "the
most visually stunning movie ever made"
and has made many "top films of all
time" lists. Admission is $5.
Film critic Roger Ebert calls the film
a bold mad act of genius," and said, "To

Fate and circumstances intervene to
intenrupt his quiet, pipe-smoking, soli-

adventures draw him out of his settled
routine of regret and reflections into a
series of comic and poignant occurances.
Actor Owe, the supporting cast of excep-
tional character actors, and lovely wintery
scenes filmed in the environs of Oslo
make this droll tale a delight.
The film is in Norwegian with English
subtitles and has a running time of 89
minutes. It is rated PG-13. Tickets are $7
and can be purchased at BIG ARTS in
advance or on the evening of the show-
ing. Refreshments will be served on the

Darkening light, April night
before what would have been
your birthday, father

You who believed
women were meant
for marriage and babies,
never believed I should aspire
beyond high school
Your straight A student
what did you think I'd do?

I married for what I thought was
love ad iomake my own way, too.
A te chlren came,


two, I love beyond belief ,
but a love lost marriage cannot
renew.

So, on this eve of your birth,
spring earth musty, lengthened light,
I remember you.

Father, these lines long in coming,
years distilled and kept within.
I was the child who
held the snaked hose,
watered the garden we had
hoed, sown the seeds in rows.

How our garden grew, and you,
dear father did not live to know
the seed you planted grew
more than a marriage and babies, too.

That seed grew words,
and the poem that's born
of those April gardens
fresh with spring-
a gift to you.
Lorraine A. Vail received the 2009
Literary Artist of the Year Awuard from
the Alliance for the Arts, Fort Myers
and wuas a Pushcart Prize nominee.
She is the recipient of two Geraldine
R. Dodge Foundation Grants in
poetry and in December 2009, one
of her poems wuas selected for the
International Museum of Women's
Web site. Gulf Coast Writers and
FGCU Sanibel Writers Conference
have awarded her first place in their
poetry contests. Her poems are pub-
lished in numerous journals. Vail is the
creator of the collaborative ArtPoems
Project (2007-10). She is the author
of Between Land and Sea, Near Water
and Paradise Found. Her latest book is
Fire in the Grass which may be found in
local bookstores and online. She calls

Riddle was able to stop working in the
fields when she was in the 9th grade.
She is prime example of the enormous
benefits of one of our most successful leg-
islative programs, the GI Bill, as she was
able to finance her education at Indiana
University (BA, 1981) and Indiana
University Law School (JD, 1984) by
virtue of her army service.
President Obama, cognizant of the
political clout of the Latino vote, is
expected to fulfill a campaign promise
to put immigration reform on the front
burner, after the economic crisis, the wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan and healthcare
reform dominated the first 15 months of
the president s attention. Job creation,
financial regulatory legislation, deficit
reduction, education reform, climate
change, and energy production/usage
will be vying to be addressed immediately.
Even with all that, the president has
promised to seek that elusive bipartisan
consensus for a comprehensive bill to fix
what he has called a "broken immigration
system," citing the problems with today's
immigration system that produces families
being torn apart, employers gaming the
system and police officers struggling to
keep communities safe.
As Riddle's life story so poignantly sets
up as a counterpoint, the U.S. ends up
with thousands of our best and brightest
students, brought to this country as small
children, with limited access to higher
education and legal employment. Noting
that President Obama won 67 percent
of Latino voters and carried states he
could not have won without their ballots,
including Nevada, New Mexico and most
importantly, Florida, Riddle has spoken of
the economic, political and moral impera-
tive to reform the immigration system,
as we are less secure because millions
of people are living in the shadows with
illegal immigrants laboring in an under-
ground economy, essential to our work-
force, but vulnerable to exploitation.
The club will provide information to
assist those attending to make their views
on immigration reform known to elected
representatives.
All are welcome.M

the committee's annual meeting last

The award was presented to Feiner

address the group on the many ways in
which FISH works to provide various
services, as well as food aid and financial
assistance to Sanibel residents who are in
need.
The committee's board of directors
felt the Citizen of the Year award was
especially appropriate for Feiner and her
group this year in view of the extraor-

Felo II SI de O OSW
by Robbie
Roepstorff
Good Neighbor
Community
boudea on olva

-y ince its
creation in
2000, it has
been my honor to
serve as an advi-
sory board mem-
ber of the Good Neighbor Community
Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva
(GNCFSC), a division of the Southwest
Florida Community Foundation.
Islanders truly benefit from the rela-
tionship that our GNCFSC has with the
larger Southwest Florida Community
Foundation, which has been support-
ing our five-county region for more than
three decades. In a nutshell, we have the
benefits of their first-rate staff and their
larger pooled investment portfolio, but
still keep our focus squarely on helping
fellow islanders in need. That's what I call
having our cake and eating it, too.
The GNCFSC could not have effected
the positive changes it has on Sanibel and
Captiva without being part of the regional
Community Foundation, and for that we
are most grateful. Following are just a few
examples of ways we have helped our
island neighbors over the last decade.


Hurricane Charley
We initially became known for the
needs we address through our Good
Neighbor Fund, a fund set aside to help
islanders with small, urgent, one-time
needs. The Good Neighbor Fund made
a tremendous difference after Hurricane
Charley, providing grants totaling
$30,000 to nonprofit agencies helping
island families.
Sanibel School
Many island families remember when
the Sanibel School had equipment and
building needs that simply could not
be met by the School District of Lee
County. With the GNCFSC's help, the
Sanibel School established a Community
Foundation fund that was used to launch
a capital campaign for the enhancement
of school facilities where our children
learn. The fund provided islanders with a
means of making charitable contributions
to support our local public school.
Tuition Assistance
Meeting the educational needs of our
local children doesn't stop there. The
GNCFSC was exceedingly pleased to
launch the ongoing scholarship program
for children of our city employees. Many
children of city employees have received
tuition assistance through this program.
Golf Tournament
Through the generosity of The
Sanctuary Golf Club, its members, spon-
sors, and community friends, the Good
Neighbor Community Foundation of
Sanibel-Captiva's eighth annual Sanctuary
Community Golf Challenge on January
23 grossed over $75,000. Support for
this annual event helps GNCFSC to
bring critical resources to area non-profit


than $1.5 million in grants and scholar-
ships to assist families and individuals who
live and work on Sanibel and Captiva
through the stewardship of permanently
endowed funds.
For that proud track record, I say,
"Happy 10th anniversary to all of us


FG CU Fundraising

Series Workshop

and Consensus Building is a two-hour
workshop from the Florida Institute of
Government's Non-Profit Series Session

The second of a three-part fundraising
series builds upon lessons learned in the
first session and takes them to practical
applications. For an organization and/
or community to be successful in capacity
building and fundraising, it is essential to
understand the important role community
awareness plays in achieving positive
growth. Participants will learn to incorpo-
rate a multi-faceted community awareness
campaign and consensus building strategy
to enhance positive outcome.
Debra Lynne is instructor for the
series. The workshop runs from 8:30
a.m. to 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, April 13 at
FGCU's Atrium Executive Center, 8695

organizations, enhancing local education,
the environment, arts and culture, animal
welfare, historic preservation and human
services.
FISH of Sanibel
For many of us, the economic down-
turn of the last two years has been a
sobering reminder of how fragile the
social safety net can be. We can some-
times forget that our island neighbors
are perilously close to not meeting their
basic needs. During our fiscal year 2008-
09, the GNCFSC was able to provide
$20,000 in grants to FISH of Sanibel
(Friends in Service Here). With that fund-
ing, FISH reached out to neighbors like
the 82-year old man who was living on
Social Security and learned he had been
denied food stamps. FISH helped him
pay for his utilities and groceries and ulti-
mately helped him to secure senior hous-
ing. It feels good to be able to respond to
such heartbreaking needs.
A Shared Mission
The mission of the GNCFSC is to
bring together people in need with
people who care. We hope to promote
philanthropy and a spirit of community
to enhance the quality of life for residents
and employees of the islands, now and
for generations to come. We welcome
full- and part-time residents, as well as vis-
itors, who may want to help their island
neighbors by supporting our work. For
more information, please call 274-5900
or visit our Web site at www.floridacom-
munity.com.
I am most pleased to conclude by
sharing that over the last decade, the
Good Neighbor Community Foundation
of Sanibel-Captiva has distributed more

tors and numerous friends of Zonta who
found creative ways to contribute finan-
cially and othenvise to the event," said
Shimberg. A complete list can be found
at the Zonta Web site, www.zontasancap.
com.
A feature introduced in 2009 involves
asking Peekers to bring items of non-
perishable food for the pantry at FISH
of Sanibel. This year, Peekers were very
generous and the club thanks those who
participated.
Members gathered March 24 at the
home of club President Carolyn Gray
for the traditional post-Peek potluck din-
ner to relax and enjoy the success of
their efforts over the preceding months.
Every member of the club, 70-strong,
is expected each year to contribute her
time, influence and talent to the event.
More than two dozen members headed
up the various areas, including food and
beverage, sponsors and marketing, print-
ing, transportation, publicity, ticket sales,
home base logistics (special thanks to the
Sanibel Community Church), bus guides
and parking. Several Zontians were
posted at each unique home to serve
as docents and assist each arriving tour
group.
Funds raised by the Peek go toward
programs that enhance the status of
women, and over the next few months
the club will determine exactly how this
year's proceeds will be distributed.#

Docents Honored At Luncheon


Mark and Karen Saunders, Barbara Eisenberg and Alan Smith


"I am glad Sam Bailey is here to correct
my errors!" said McCullough, as he began
his talk.
McCullough began photographing on
the islands as a young boy in 1935. Since
then he has created a massive library of
black and white images that tells the story
of Sanibel Island from its earliest years to
its present time.
His subjects include the Sanibel
Lighthouse, striking cloud formations, sail-
ing, the ferry, dolphins, beaches, pelicans,
clams and the goat who used to live next
door. He was the only allowed to photo-
graph the legendary Esperanza Woodring,


Karl Rodman, Annette Cantalupo, Ann Rodman and John and Nancy Lefever
and he captured her in a series of powerful pictures.
"She was tough she could walk across an oyster bed barefoot!" said McCullough.
The event concluded with remarks by Gayle Pence and Alex Werner.
Volunteers recognized for 15 Years of Service included Janet Halliday, Shirley
Hoch, Mardi Ponader, and Mary Ann Sagebarth,
Volunteers recognized for 10 Years of Service included Adrienne Cross, Elise Hall,
Peggy Henward, Marcia Leslie and Margaret White.
Volunteers recognized for 5 Years of Service included Barbara Eisenberg (who also
won the raffle for a McCullough photo of the lighthouse), Nanette Laurion, Stephanie
Rahe, and Susan Schmidt.
The welcoming of new docents included Jeanine Allen Bradford, Maryann
Czarnecki, Alan Lessack, Melva Riedl, and Peter Zell.#

Tennis Basics

Get A Grip
by Louis Vosloo


Oand strokes
q ..v cacnge sig-
ago, when wooden
rackets were used,
th cont nnal and
ve ry dpuoptulatr This
heaviness of the racket and the lower
bounces of the balls. These players also
did a lot of serve and volleying, there-
fore not needing to change their grip.
Also, these two grips enable a player to
hit the ball quite effectively by their hips
and lower. But topspin is very difficult to
execute .
Now, people have taken to hitting
a lot of topspin, and therefore with the
lighter rackets, the grips have changed
to the popular semi-western grip. This is
used effectively for high bouncing shots
from the hip and higher, and gives the
player lots of power and spin. But low
balls are difficult in this semi-western and
western grip.
If you feel you are struggling to hit
certain shots at certain heights it could be
due to your grip. Consult an expert to see
how to change the grip or work on your
foot work to get into position to hit the
ball at the right height for your grip.#

Baileys Baggers


by Nick Brown
The Sanibel Grill Rec'N'Crew got sweet revenge last Thursday night in a nar-
row win over Bailey's Baggers. The last time these two teams met, Bailey's
eliminated the Rec'N'Crew from the post-season tournament in a major
upset.
The road to victory for the Crew was an uphill climb the whole way. The Sanibel
Grill trailed Bailey's right up until the end of the game, at one point by as many as six
runs. Finally, in the bottom of the 6th inning, the Sanibel Grill put on the charcoal and
lit it up with three runs to take the clinching 10-9 lead.
Sanibel Grill captain Luke Sweeney said, "We roasted them alive! How do you like
your Bailey's with pickles and ketchup?"
The other games this week were not so climactic. The Lazy Flamingo made a lot of
"flocking" mistakes against Sanctuary Island Electric leading to a 24-8 loss; the Great
White Grill put on a sizzling win over All Island Glass 22-7; and Royal Shell looked fos-
silized with a 26-7 loss to the Aztec Plumbing Warriors.

bought a home here and in 1999 officially became Sanibel residents. Professionally
she has pursued a career as a science writer and communications manager, in addi-
tion to strategic planning and work on behalf of environmental and community
organizations both here and in her native state of Ohio. Efforts of this kind led to her
being awarded the Distinguished Leadership Award of the National Association of
Community Leadership Organizations.
She has also served as chairperson of the Sanibel Shared Vision public informa-
tion committee and is a member of the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva, the Sanibel
Congregational United Church of Christ, and the Sanibel League of Women Voters.
She assisted the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation and the Committee of the
Islands in establishing their first Web sites, and she was Webmaster for the Zonta Club
of Sanibel-Captiva. She has served as president of the Gulf Pines Property Owners
Association and currently assists in managing its Web site.

The general membership also elected new members of the Committee of the
Islands board. Elected for their first two-year terms were: Barbara Joy Cooley, Mike
Gillespie, Mickie Kaplan, Claire Mallon,
Susie Marks, Bud Reinhold and Larry
Schopp. Allan Silberman was elected to a
second two-year term.
The Committee of the Islands was ',I.
founded in 1975 by those who helped
incorporate Sanibel as an independently
governed city within Lee County. Today
its mission still reflects the group s purpose
as reflected in its founding documents: To
ensure a continuity of good local govern-
ment; to help promote and maintain an
enduring standard of living consistent with
the environmental quality of the island;

planning to preserve Sanibel's unique and
natural characteristics. Information about

assistance with rent and mortgage payments, utilities, and medical and dental services.
FISH serves over 600 people on Sanibel, including 75 families and individuals who in the
past year have received emergency assistance totaling $74,000.
Feiner, who has a nursing degree and was responsible for a law firm specializing in
elder law, moved to Sanibel in 1994. She became a FISH volunteer in 2000, joined the
boar eidde yar ag200 served as president in 2006 and 2007. She was again elected
FISH was founded in 1981 by four couples who lived on the island and felt there was
a need to help islanders who were alone, elderly, disabled or were housebound and not
able to get to their medical appointments without help.
In its early days, the organization enlisted the support of the Sanibel Police
Department; the FISH helpline was actually linked directly to the police dispatcher. At that
time the phone service (a key part of the original and still continuing services of FISH) was
handled by volunteers out of their homes and records were passed fr-om home to home.
FISH meetings were held in at the Congregational Church at the time, and many
of the Sanibel churches hosted the monthly Friendly Faces lunches, which are still held
today. Church members would cook the food for the lunches.

organic brands on the market here.
Owners Trasi Sharp and Liza Clouse
do their research on pet foods and only
carry those they would feed to their
own pets those with little or no fill-
ers. In fact, they are whittling down and
discontinuing at least one line and have
replaced it with another. New are dog
and cat bagged food by Fromm, which
contains salmon and duck for cats and
pork and fish for dogs along with healthy
fruits and vegetables. Another is Orijen,
which consists of 70 percent protein and
30 percent fmuits and vegetables. Only
human quality meats are used.
There's a new oral care line for dogs
called Tropiclean that can be added to
their water bowl, and to keep the skin
and coat in tip top condition, there's
Dermagic containing natural ingredients
such as aloe, peppermint and tea tree oil.
As I said, it's a boutique, so there are
many cute and useful pet items such as
toys, collars, lifejackets, picture frames
and bowls. And for their humans, there
are T-shirts and even doggy bracelets
made from canine-theme charms, by
local dog walker Mary Laser Demik.

FPL Encourages Customers To

Treat Every Day Like Earth Day

activities encouraging Floridians to treat every day not just April 22 as
SEarth pi 1 lrd oer&LgtCman ikdofa ot fat Day.
Throughout April, FPL's Earth Day Is Every Day campaign will offer a series of
daily tips 30 tips in all for families who want to incorporate environmental steward-
ship into their regular routines and save money on their monthly utility bills. FPL will
also host a number of community events in its service territory to boost environmental
awareness and encourage adoption of environmentally friendly, energy-efficient prac-
tices.
"FPL is proud to be an industry leader in environmental stewardship, and we invite
our customers to join us this month in implementing environmentally responsible life-
style choices to help preserve our natural resources. ... many of these actions can also
save money on utility bills, so these really can be win-win actions for customers," said
Randy LaBauve, FPL's vice president of environmental services.
Phase One is Green All Around: Ten Tips to Help the Environment and Your
Bottom Line.
For the first 10 days of April, FPL reviews appliances and common habits in homes
and businesses that can have a large impact on utility bills. Simple changes can also
help conserve natural resources.
*Avoid hand-washing your dishes (as if you need an excuse) automatic dishwash-
ers consume one-third less water than hand-washing so you'll reduce both your water
usage and water-heating costs.
*Turn the ceiling fan off when you leave the room. Diligence at preventing fans
from running unnecessarily can save you up to $7 a month in energy costs.
*Adjust your washing machine to the appropriate water level for each load, and
use cold water to wash and rinse your clothes when possible. You'll reduce your water
usage, and you'll also save the energy you would be using to heat the water.
*Replacing that old porch light with an energy-efficient compact-fluorescent bulb
can save you up to $50 over 2 V2z yearS.
*For a standard one-horsepower pool pump, reducing the mun time by two hours a
day can save you about $9 a month in electricity. For larger pumps, the savings could

The launch party brought together
members from all of John's community
and allowed for those interested to learn
more about John's wish and find ways to
volunteer. John's mother Joanie Halgrim
thanked all the orphanage supporters
saying, "John was an ordinary boy fac-
ing extraordinarily tragic circumstances in
life, and his driving desire to think beyond
his own pain and do something for oth-
ers inspired an entire community. John's
wish is now a reality in the bricks and
mortars of a safe home in a small part of
Africa.
The John Halgrim Foundation was
established to support underprivileged
children throughout the world, fostering
their well-being, health and education
through a variety of forms. The founda-
tion seeks to provide financial support to
the John Halgrim Orphanage in Nairobi,
Kenya, and establish a scholarship fund
to enable a local area student attend col-
lege. The foundation believes in giving
each child it takes into its care the secu-
rity of food, home and education as
well as hope for the future.
The John Halgrim Foundation is a
registered and accredited 501(c)3. For

ways to give visit: www.johnhalgrimor-

share recent news of the John Halgrim
Orphanage and the goals and mission
of the John Halgrim Foundation.
Following the diagnosis of an
inoperable, malignant brain tumor
in 2006, 15-year-old John Halgrim
was approached by the Make-A-Wish
Foundation, offering him an opportunity
for one last wish. John told the volunteer
that he would like to open an orphanage
in Africa. The Make-A-Wish Foundation
was not sure that they could facilitate
John's wish, however, he carried on and
pursued other channels. When his pas-
tor heard about John's desire to help
needy children in Africa, it was met with
great enthusiasm from his local church
community. Through support and dona-
tions from his community, family and
friends John's wish was granted and


one year to the date of his passing, the
John Halgrim Orphanage was opened in
Nairobi, Kenya. Now home to 60 chil-
dren, the wish of a 15-year-old boy with
a big heart for others became a reality.
The launch party was also timed in
conjunction with the airing of a PBS
documentary entitled John's Wish, which
aired this Easter weekend on WGCU.
Board members also shared news about
upcoming fundraising events and activi-
ties, including an annual golf tournament
on October 2 at Fort Myers Country
Club. Also present at the launch party
was Executive Director of Uncommon
Friends Arlene Roth, who announced
that John Halgrim will be posthumously
given the Uncommon Friends Award on
June 3.

The report also highlights partnerships with other international organizations. For
example, Nobel laureate and founder of Green Cross International Mikhail Gorbachev
reflected on the center's anniversary: "I congratulate the Center for Environmental
and Sustainability Education on its fifth anniversary. I am glad that Green Cross
International and the center have been successfully cooperating on a number of proj-

to continuation of this partnership.
Contributors to the center's recent successful fundraising celebration received

Haffenreffer also continued an annual tradition of energizing donor participation with
The Haffenreffer Challenge. In addition to their generosity as hosts of the fundraising
celebration, the Haffenreffer's will match any new donations offered to the center up

Did You Know... Electricity
Prevents Mildew And Mold
by Laura Zocki Puerto, LCEC Public Relations Specialist
Mildew and mold are as common as oranges and palm
trees in Southwest Florida. Not only can mildew and
mold affect your health, they can cause major damage
to your home. If your home is vacant for any extended period,
= 7 LCEC energy advisors recommend the following steps to pre-
vent costly damage as well as maximize energy efficiency.
*Be sure to keep a small amount of air conditioning on. If the
air conditioner is completely shut off, mildew damage may occur
due to humidity build-up in the home.
*Install a timer on your air conditioner to cycle the air for two
hours per day. Or install a humidistat on your air conditioner. Set
it to cycle your air conditioning whenever indoor humidity exceeds 65 percent.
*To minimize humidity in the air, you may want to shut off the water supply to toi-
lets and flush them. Another step is to cover them with cling wrap. This will ensure no
additional humidity is brought into the home.
*Leave all interior doors open to promote airflow and guard against mildew. Space
out clothing, shoes and other stored materials for the same reason.
Other helpful tips:
Save electricity by unplugging the water heater, since it won't be used.
A full refrigerator/freezer will use less power than an empty one. Use jugs of tap
water to fill the unit. If you unplug the refrigerator, prop the door open and be sure it's
clean.
*Just to be safe, you may want to have a neighbor, friend or professional house sit-
ter check your home periodically during your absence.M

furniture sports the same fabric, break
the monotony by recovering one or two
pieces.
When stuck with a suite of bedroom
furniture, you can make a striking dif-
ference by changing the bed. Introduce
a sumptuous padded headboard or an
impressive iron canopy bed. Break the
set of night tables and replace one with
a rectangular skirted table, a round-tiered
table, or a painted chest.
In your dining room, replace the two

Accent Prone
by Bridget
Vandenburgh
Although a
supporting
plyrfor
years, accent fur-
niture has recently
taken spotlight
status as the star
in home decor.
Certainly, it still
serves the purpose
of providing interest in an already func-
tional room, but more often these days
designers are using accent furniture for
all their furniture needs.
Gone are the days of the matching
suite's dominance. In fact, the seeming
consensus holds that the matching suite
of furniture is a somewhat dull design
option. Intriguing designs in a wide range
of prices make accent furnishings the
perfect choice for those homeowners
seeking a change.
If you usually play it safe by having
everything match, now is the time to
step out of your comfort zone and dare
to be eclectic. In the living room, if you
have matching tables, chairs and lamps
- divide and conquer. Remove one or
two of your wood tables and replace with
a glass-topped, iron-based table. Add a

*Don't forget to clean or change your air-conditioning filter once a month. Your
unit won't have to work as hard, and you'll keep your indoor air cleaner.
*When using air-conditioning, the average home can save $4.50 a month just bV
raising the temperature a single degree.
*Replacing your showerhead with a water-efficient model can cut your hot water
usage in half and save up to $50 a year on your electric bill. Don't forget to repair
dripping faucets and leaky toilets. According to FEMA, one drop per second wastes
2,700 gallons of water per year.
*Keep warm with a blanket... for your pool. Two-thirds of a pool's heat escapes
from the water's surface. Use a pool blanket to cut the amount of energy used to heat

38B ISLAND SUN APRIL 9, 2010


H i, my
Names is i
I Austin and
I'm an American
bull dog mix. I'm
only 18 months
old and I'm a very
handsome young --
boy. Iwas lost
and the officers
found me and
brought me to the
shelter. Now I'm
hoping you will
find me irresist-
ible and take me
home. I'm very
smart and know
how to sit already.
I will be glad to
learn anything
you want to teach
me. I'm not real
fond of cats but I
love people a lot.
My adoption '..1 r
fee is $75 minus .-'
a discount when
you draw an egg Austin ID# 465882 Joe ID)#463827
from Animal
Services' adoption basket containing a coupon worth $20 to $75 off the regular price of all pet adoptions
during April's Adoption Egg-stravaganza promotion.
I'm Joe and I'm a five-month-old domestic short haired kitten. I like playing a lot whether it's with other
cats or people and, as you can tell by my photo, I really get into it. I especially like toys I can pounce on. I
also enjoy spending quality time with people. Please come visit me at the shelter and see if we're made for
each other
My adoption fee is just like Austin's: $75 minus a discount when you draw an egg from the basket
which contains a coupon worth $20 to $75 off.
Throughout April at Lee County Animal Services, anyone adopting can draw an egg from the basket
for a coupon worth $20 to $75 off the regular price of all pet adoptions. The reduced adoption fee will
still include the complete package of services.
For information about this week's pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Semvices' Web
site at www.LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to the animal's ID number. The Web site updates eve y
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


said Adam Leath, LCDAS operations manager.
"Identification saves lives, reduces shelter over-
crowding, and saves millions of taxpayer dollars
currently spent to house and care for homeless
pets "
In fact, permanent identification, that can't be
lost or removed, is so important that Lee County
discounts pet license fees for pets that are micro-
chipped as well as sterilized. This is because steril-
ization reduces the number of pets that end up in
shelters and identification reduces the amount of
time, if any, pets will spend at the shelter.
LCDAS offers microchipping for Lee County
dog and cat owners every Friday from 10 a.m.
until noon at the shelter, 5600 Banner Drive, Fort
Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff's Office off
Six Mile Cypress Parkway. The cost is only $15 or
$5 with proof of public assistance. The one-time
cost of the microchip saves pet owners 77 percent
off the cost of a license and ensures they can be
identified should their pet become lost. "It's a win
for pets, pet owners, the shelter, and the taxpay-
ers," said Ria Brown, public information officer for

LFoA more information call 533-7387 or visit
www.LeeLostPets.com. Photos of lost pets are also
available online.M

ID Promotion
T~he scene doesn't quite play out like an epi-
Ssode from CSI or the latest police drama.
SOn TV, an identity mystery can be solved
in under an hour. However, in a true-life reality
show playing out in Lee County and thousands
of shelters across the nation, most stray pets are
never identified and never reunited with their
owners. There is a simple solution though one
that Lee County is making available to every pet
owner regardless of income.
The solution is microchip identification and the
agency believes it is the key to improving the coun-
ty s dismal 12 percent owner return rate. Only 12
percent of dogs and less than one percent of cats
in Lee County are reunited with their owners.
Each April, Lee County Domestic Animal
Services (LCDAS) joins the American Humane
