Farmers Market
To Return With

Council Blessing
by Anne Mitchell
After its first full year of operation,
the Sanibel Farmers Market has
bendeemed a success and an
asset to the island and on Tuesday it
was given the city council s blessing for
another season on the city hall grounds.
Jean Baer, co-organizer of the market,
said she may want to adjust the hours
of operation somewhat. Currently, the
Sunday market is from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
but as it s often still busy at 1 p.m. a 9
a.m. to 2 p.m. period might work better.
Baer said she would poll vendors Sunday,
the final market day of the season.
With a 5-0 vote, council gave permis-

"A few years ago I was head- ._
ing a tour through the village
grounds when I spied an alligator /fl~ _
lying beside the Burnap Cottage. c.. .
I halted the tour and notified the r
police to come and capture the rC J"1-
alligator as the Sanibel police are =C
trained to do. Margaret White
"However, they could t cap-
ture the alligator. It had retreated
under the cottage. But there was an Orkin man on the property. He sprayed the poor
creature and it was captured. The tour was given an added treat that day.
"Morning Glories has a particular charm," she says, "due to its former position on
San Carlos Bay, and being furnished with wicker furniture of the early 1920s. I can
picture myself relaxing on the porch and facing the wild morning glories that border
the beach.
Margaret goes on to say, "The fact too, that these homes were purchased from a
book (Sears Roebuck catalog) and were delivered with every brick, nail, and clapboards
needed to build in the fireplace, china cabinets, and chair rails in the dining room and
a cozy built-in table and benches in the kitchen, etc. Amazing to me!
Margaret took to her docent role at the historical museum after being trained by
one time resident Mary Bell. Margaret and her husband are active in church work and
FISH. She enjoys senior aerobics, tennis, gardening and walking the beach.
All that and an alligator sighting in the village make for a total Sanibel experience.#

ost people are not aware of the
Sanibel. From the "lost" settle-
ment of 1833 founded by the Florida
Land Company, owned by a group of
men in New York State, to the 1957
Algiers houseboat which was the first
mansion on Sanibel, owned by Lathrop
Brown from New York State, to Hugo
Lindgren from Jamestown, New York,
builder of the causeway in 1963, and
finally to the owners of the Pirate
Playhouse/Old Schoolhouse theater, all
from New York, New York played a sig-

Karl Rodman, docent at the museum

produce and fruits going to FISH) has
been presenting the glorious scenery,
history and culture of his home valley in
New York for the past 25 years. This
year, from September 19 through 24
he is offering a specialized tour which is
available only to the first 25 people who
sign up. Full cost of the tour (excluding
air-fare), which begins on the banks of
the Hudson River is $1,875. Included in
this fee is a tax-deductible contribution

Nancy Dreher, resident, said the mar-

Newus-Press and draws people to Sanibel
"to have breakfast on our island and shop
in our stores, go to Tarpon Bay and use
"Ding" Darling."
Judy Dix, a resident and a vendor at
the market, told council that selling bro-
meliads there "has really kept me in my
home on Sanibel." She said she's retired
and it's hard to find a job." She said other
vendors feel this is "the best run, cleanest,
nicest and most honest" market of the
ones they attend. "Many of my custom-
ers are from off-island and I hope the city
will continue to support this because it
is very good for the businesses and the
residents."
Mayor Kevin Ruane commented, "I
have had several businesses tell me they
buy produce at your market."O

on Sanibel. Two thousand and ten could
be down as much as 39 percent for the
first quarter," Ruane said. Other factors
of concern are that the hurricane season
is expected to be more active than usual
and with above average rainfall there's
the potential for brown algae already
being seen in the bay washing up on
the beaches.
Councilman Peter Pappas praised
Denham for his service as mayor saying,
"He has received accolades of apprecia-
tion everywhere for the job he has done
here for us. He also noted the "enor-
mous amount of work" Ruane did as vice

he next time the east end canal
cess should be quicker and easier
for all concerned.
The Sanibel City Council on Tuesday
agreed to modify the 80 percent rule to a
simple majority of 51 percent of property
owners to approve projects. In addition,
the city will continue to pay a third of
the cost of dredging and evaluations and
waive in-house costs as well as secure
funding for dredging the internal canals.
The decision was in response to a
request and presentation by Dick McNeill,
president of Shell Harbor Property
Owners Association and the East End
Canal System Task Force.
"Together we have an opportunity to
replace crisis management with crisis pre


vention," McNeill said. He was represent-
ing nine homeowners associations, six
condo associations and Sanibel Marina,
which has 71 slips. McNeill said like
death and taxes, dredging in inevitable,
unlike road paying projects which can be
optional. However, a small minority of
people can block the will of the major-
ity with a requirement for an 80 percent
approval.
"If we didn t dredge the (canal system)
entrance last April, the system would
have been inoperable," he said.
"Mr. McNeill has actually created effi-
ciences here," said Mayor Kevin Ruane.
"I applaud your efforts because we will
benefit as a city.
Next step will be for the association to
petition the city council to create two spe-
cial assessment districts and if all goes as
planned the petitioning process will begin
next October and conclude by the end of
March 2011.M

tion of operations at the board level.
"This is a huge plus for our com-
munity and for the arts," said Chuck
Bonser, president of the BIG ARTS
board of directors. "At a time when non-
profit organizations all over the country,
particularly the arts organizations, and
even including the public schools arts
programs, are suffering cutbacks and pro-
gram eliminations, BIG ARTS, The Herb
Strauss Schoolhouse Theater, and the
Sanibel-Captiva community all owe John
and Mary Jo Boler and Steve and Debbie
Klug a great debt for their willingness to
step forward with these leadership gifts to
our citizens and visitors.
The members of The Schoolhouse
Theater Foundation will be sent a let-
ter outlining the proposal this week and
members will be asked to vote on the
proposed structure change at a spe-
cial meeting of the members on April
30 at 10 a.m. at The Herb Strauss
Schoolhouse Theater.
No immediate changes to staff have
been planned during the transition in
management, according to BIG ARTS
officials. The current members of The
Schoolhouse Theater Foundation will
become automatic members of BIG
ARTS until the annual renewal deadline.
"We welcome broadening our offer-
ings and look forward to the collaboration
of our staffs, volunteers and benefac-
tors to make the BIG ARTS programs,
and the theater program in particular,
as strong as possible," said BIG ARTS
Executive Director Lee Ellen Harder. "We
look forward to the synergies afforded by
this talented group of theater staff, volun-
teers, actors and Artistic Director Victor

the Klug Family Foundation, pledged to
match the first $500,000 of the Boler's
gift to secure the $1 million endowment
to specifically support the theater opera-
tions in perpetuity. The second half of the
matching grant ($500,000) will be raised
by BIG ARTS and used to support the
full range of BIG ARTS programs. Steve
Klug is also current president of the board
of The Schoolhouse Theater Foundation,
the supportive organization of The Herb
Strauss Schoolhouse Theater. The condi-
tions of the gift include that the annual
earnings of the $1 million endowment
will support theater operations and the
direction of the theater will be under
Art Cassell, former president of The
Schoolhouse Theater Foundation.
The Schoolhouse Theater Foundation
board of directors approved the proposal
with an overwhelming majority at a board
meeting held on April 19.
"Little change to the high quality
theater experience will be noticed by the
patrons of The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse
Theater," said Klug. "This consistency
of quality comes with the added guar-
antee that live theater will continue on
the island with a stronger financial base,
more efficient operations and broader
reach to members of BIG ARTS, and
island residents and visitors." Klug said
ballots have been sent out to the nearly
300 members of the theater to vote on
the proposal. "If you love live theater on
Sanibel, vote yes," said Klug, after the
press conference at BIG ARTS.
The move will combine the man-
agement, marketing, fundraising and
volunteer program operations into one
collaborative effort making the orga-
nizations more efficient and financially
stable. Upon approval, assets of The

transferred to BIG ARTS. Klug will join

Library on Dunlop Road.
The last meeting focused on the newly
passed federal health care bill. The guest
speaker was Dr. Samuel Hahn, a gradu-
ate of the University of Pennsylvania and
Harvard Medical School and the Hawvard
- MIT Joint Program in Health Science
Technology. He followed this with an
internship, residency and a fellowship
at Massachusetts General Hospital. He
is currently a practicing cardiologist and
the managing partner of Health Care
Associates in Connecticut, as well as an
associate professor of clinical medicine
at Yale University s School of Medicine.
Dr. Hahn has also just been asked by the
Hospital of St. Raphael s in New Haven,
Connecticut to be the director of out
patient cardiology.
Dr. Hahn gave an ovewview of the new
legislation from the perspective of the
medical field, and said that the bill primar-
ily addressed not so much health care but
health care insurance. He said that for
the first several years Medicare will prob-
ably not feel any significant change, but
sooner rather than later government must
find ways to fund its programs and/or
cut costs substantially. He then spoke of
a coming trend in which more and more
private medical practices will be absorbed
into hospitals.
As the hospitals will be compensated
by Medicare at a higher rate. Any reg-


istered Republican voter is invited to
attend meetings of the Sanibel-Captiva
Republican Caucus. Call Robb Moran at

policy issues, and influences public policy
through education and advocacy.M:

Headed This Way
by Anne Mitchell
The last time the level of Lake
Okeechobee reached 15 feet, the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
began dumping massive volumes of
lake water polluted by agricultural
runoff down the Caloosahatchee
River. That was several years ago and
it caused widespread algae blooms and
destruction of sea grasses in and around
Sanibel.
Today, after a particularly wet winter,
the lake is at 14.75 inches and there is
concern that more lake water is headed
this way.
Rob Loflin, Sanibel s natural resources
director, told the city council on Tuesday,
"Unless we have evaporation of the


There was a temporary medical office
building on the Tarpon Bay Road side
but that doesn t count. "They never
really built it," said Jordan. The prefabri-
cated buildings were moved off site as
required by the city when the develop-
ers decided not to build a permanent
structure.
Frizzell's project will have units for
lease for primary or satellite offices, full
or part-time, according to a company
flyer. Frizzell, a gastroenterologist from
Frederick, Maryland, has a home on
Sanibel. He also owns Huxter s and
Sanibel Spirits. He has said he plans to
have medical space for himself in the new
center.
Meanwhile, permits for residential
projects are picking up, said Jordan. "We
have two or three homes that are pend-
ing and we are ahead with new home
permits this quarter compared with a year
ago.
Jordan said the planning department
is handling as many as four applications
for new single-family homes. "Some are
awaiting additional permitting from the

the potential for some of that ending up

"We have our preparations in place
if there is a release," noted Vice Mayor
Mick Denham. Loflin replied that he was
taking part in weekly meetings with the
army corps of engineers to try to make
any releases less damaging and to discuss

would be in harm's way if the crumbling

Loflin told council, "That will take time

it comes to running up against the dike s
public safety issues, that is where the
estuary is bound to lose. M

because of medical reasons. Brick and
mortar Blood Centers (Lee Memorial,
Health Park, and Cape Coral) and the
Lee Memorial Blood Mobile are the best
sources of blood donations today. Many
service organizations, city governments,
businesses, and local high schools regu-
larly schedule LMHS Blood Mobile visits.
High school blood drives are highly suc-
cessful; recently Cape Coral High School
yielded 374 units of blood and continues
to challenge all of the other high schools
in the area to beat their record. Our own
community of Sanibel has regularly blood
drives throughout the Island. Check the
City of Sanibel and LMHS Blood Mobile
Web sites for their schedules.
Now a little information about paying
it forward and giving blood:
Typically, each donated unit of blood,
referred to as whole blood, is separated
into multiple components, such as red
blood cells, plasma, and platelets. Each
component is generally transfused to a
different individual, each with different
needs. Accident victims, people under-
going surgery, and patients receiving
treatment for leukemia, cancer, or other
diseases, such as sickle cell disease and
thalassemia, all utilize blood. More than
23 million units of blood components are
transfused every year. What a small gift to
give with such a large impact on the lives
of others.
It doesn t take very long to give this
gift of life. The whole process takes about
an hour. It starts with registration, a
health history and a mini-physical. Then
comes the actual donation, which usually
takes 10 to 12 minutes. Aftenyard, you
will be asked to spend a few minutes in
the canteen where you can have light
refreshment before returning to your nor-
mal activities.


A blood donation equals approxi-
mately one pint of blood. The average
adult body has 10 to 12 pints. The vast
majority of people will not feel any differ-
ent because of the donation. A very small
percentage may experience temporary
dizziness, but some rest and fluids help
them feel better quickly. The body will
replace the lost fluid within 24 hours.
"When are blood donors needed
most? While blood donors are needed
throughout the year, they are most need-
ed during holidays and in the summer. It
is during these times that the number of
donations declines while the demand con-
tinues or even increases.
So here s an action plan for all of us:
donate blood. You don t have to be rich
to make this type of donation, it doesn t
cost anything except a little of your time.
I guarantee you; you will feel great after-
wards knowing you have helped someone
in his or her time of need.
Rotarians help out in many ways;
giving blood is only one of them. The
Rotary motto is "Service above Self" and
our members take that very seriously.
When another non-profit on the Island
asked us to help them raise funds for
their organization, we were there. This
past weekend, John Carney took on a
special challenge as Rotary's contestant
in the first annual Edible Mollusk Festival
and their Oyster Eating contest rais-
ing funds for the Bailey-Matthews Shell
Museum. He slid down 25 oysters in 90
seconds. Unfortunately, he didn t win
but he did raise $630 in pledges for the
museum. Kudos to John.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary club meets
7 a.m., every Friday at the Beachview
Restaurant, Par View Drive, Sanibel.#


As of Friday, April 16, there were
five snowy plover nests with
total of 15 eggs. All are on
Sanibel's east end.
The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation (SCCF) coordinates the
monitoring of snowy plover nesting
on Sanibel. Snowy plovers nest on the
beach. SCCF stakes protective exclosures
around snowy plover nests. Please do
not enter the staked exclosures and keep
dogs out as well. When snowy plovers
are not moving, they are extremely well
camouflaged. If a snowy plover is flushed
from its nest, it takes very 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 of snowy plovers remain along the
west coast of Florida, from the Panhandle
through Cape Sable. Snowy plover nest-
ing season runs through August, and
they can nest two or three times in one
season.
You can learn more about snowy
plovers on Sanibel at a program offered
on Friday at 10 a.m. at SCCF's Nature
Center, 3333 Sanibel-Captiva Road.
After a talk about "snowies," the group
will carpool out to the beach to learn how
to spot these elusive shorebirds in their
native habitat. For more information, visit

How important is it to give blood?
Well 4.5 million Americans
would die each year without
lifesaving blood transfusions. That
is a dramatic hard fact delivered by
Rotary s Friday morning speaker, Nancy
Hendrick, community relations director,
Lee Memorial Blood Centers.
Hendrick said, "The Blood Centers
of Lee Memorial Health System (Lee
Memorial, Gulf Coast, and Lee s Cancer
Centers) need 500 pints of blood per
week to keep up with medical demands.
Service Clubs were the mainstay of blood
drives in past years, but the members of
these organizations are aging and fewer
members are able to give blood

tion for the contributions of teacher Lu Sares, who has been a beloved figure
at the school for the past 20 years.
A generation of island children have enjoyed having her as a teacher. "Miss Lu is
very special to all of us," said Director Jana Yates. "She s an excellent teacher. She
can talk to children at their level, and she is veny kind and caring. She has become one
of my closest friends.
Miss Lu, who teaches pre-k, moved to Sanibel from Toledo, Ohio in 1989.

Originally she planned to retire, but her builder, Rick Cunningham, encouraged to go
see the Children s Education Center of the Islands. The visit inspired her to keep her
teaching career going and she has been at the heart of things at the Casa Ybel loca-
tion ever since.
"I have met many wonderful parents and children during my 20 years of teaching
here," said Miss Lu. "My philosophy is to treat the children as I would want my own
children and grandchildren treated. I not only want to prepare the children for kinder-
garten scholastically, but I want to develop self-confidence, independence, and give
them lots of love.
Miss Lu has taught in each classroom in all of the buildings and serves as the assis-
tant director, too. She has been a steady hand and problem solver for more than half
of the school s 35-year history.
"I ve worked for five directors and believe we are doing just great at present," she
said. "I was pleased when Larry Thompson helped complete Thompson Hall, making
a great addition to our facility.
Some island families have had the privilege of seeing Miss Lu during the entire span
of her career at the center. The Hall family, for example, is now entering their third
decade with Miss Lu and the Children s Education Center: first JD and Conner in the
1990s, then Madison in the 2000s, and now Will Hall in the 2010s.
"She is an engaging, loving teacher and we feel lucky each of our children had the
opportunity to learn with her," said their father, Jim Hall.M

Scientists Fish For Facts About

Walding Bird Foraging In Everglades
The South
SFlorida Water
SManagement
District (SFWMD)
Governing Board
recently approved
continuing support for
a unique study that
is helping scientists
protect and restore
wading bird colonies ,
in the Everglades. The
ongoing study is being
conducted by biolo-
gists at Florida Atlantic
University.
"Wading birds are
the iconic image of
the Everglades, and
they tell us a great deal
about the overall health
of the ecosystem," said
SFWMD Governing Great egret taking flight
Board Chairman Eric
Buermann. "This study will help provide the science necessary to make sound ecosys-
tem management and restoration decisions as we move fonvard."
The governing board's investment of $978,500 allows the study to continue for
another five years and helps the district meet an objective of the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP), which calls for restoring nesting colonies of wad-
ing birds in the Everglades.
Conducted by the university's Dr. Dale Gawlik, the goal of the study is to gain an
understanding of how dry season hydrologic patterns across the landscape affect fish
concentrations and corresponding bird foraging. By determining optimal water depth
to increase the availability of fish, water managers may be able to make operational
changes to water levels that better support and increase the success of wading bird
populations, while continuing to meet water supply, flood control and other environ-
mental needs.
The study involves sampling fish and invertebrates throughout freshwater marshes
located within Everglades National Park boundaries, the eastern portion of the Big
Cypress National Preserve, the littoral zone of Lake Okeechobee, the Pal-Mar and JW
Corbett Wildlife Management Area and the Water Conservation Areas.
The Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan is a framework for restoring, pro-
tecting and preserving the water resources of central and southern Florida. CERP is a
50-50 partnership between the state of Florida and the federal government. The state
of Florida and the South Florida Water Management District have invested approxi-
mately $2.4 billion toward this effort, including approximately $600 million in con-
struction. Through December 31, 60 percent or approximately 233,277 acres of
the estimated lands needed to implement CERP have been acquired.M

Community Panel

The Captiva Community Panel -- an
land use and zoning issues -- has
undertaken a number of islandwide
efforts to benefit Captiva. The panel is
the island's official planning organization
and catalyst for developing a compre-
hensive Captiva Plan. Its efforts include:
*Facilitating funding of more than
$1.5 million from Lee County and other
governmental entities for numerous
Captiva planning and implementation


*Providing a public forum for all
islandwide land use and zoning issues.
But improving the waters surround-
ing Captiva island may prove to be the
most important achievement of all. It is
hoped all of Captiva will follow the results
of thepanel's water quality study closely
and participate in any solutions the data
shows are needed.
A perceived severe decline in water
quality in fall 2007 sparked the tempo-
rary closure of two Sanibel beaches and
inspired residents of both islands to take a
closer look at the conditions of their near-
shore waters. The panel, through its long-
standing water quality committee, decided
to launch a monitoring study to assess
the quality of nearshore waters, identify
potential pollutants and their sources, and
develop ways to ensure cleaner waters
surrounding the island.
To undertake this, the panel obtained
funding from the county's Tourist
Development Council (TDC) to support a
two-year water quality monitoring effort.
Given the tourism value that clean water
conveys and the damaging headlines
sparked by the beach closures in 2007
-- the panel believed the TDC would
agree finding the source of the problem
was critical. The panel partnered with the
Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation
(SCCF) Marine Lab, which developed a
monitoring proposal.
In October 2008 the panel received
$122,925 in Year 1 TDC funding for a
water quality study. First, SCCF scientists
summarized previous collected water qual-
ity data from various organizations into
a database. Lab staff also summarized
historical violations for all wastewater
treatment plants on Sanibel, Captiva and
areas surrounding Pine Island Sound.
Based on this, areas of potential con-
cern were identified, sampling points
were selected and a monitoring plan
was initiated. Sampling began in fall
2008. Despite tight funds, the panel and
SCCF were able to secure an additional
$99,294 in October 2009 to complete
the work of identifying potential pollution
sources.
The monitoring included results from
other concurrent SCCF research efforts,
some of which were tied to the Blind
Pass opening; sampling was conducted
on both the sound and gulf sides of the
island and areas on the north end of
Sanibel and the national wildlife refuge.
Full details on the data collected for Year
1 are available online at the panel Web


projects.
*Developing the Captiva Plan (part
of the countywide Lee Plan governing
land use) and drafting Captiva-specific
language for the Lee County Land
Development Code;
*Securing implementation of the
Captiva Drive safety shoulder from the
county's Department of Transportation;
*Facilitating the construction of com-
munications tower to improve cell phone
use on Captiva;
*Working for creation of a golf-cart
zone in the Village area and for passage
of rules allowing night-time use of appro-
priately equipped carts within that area;
*Obtaining six-figure grants for
extensive native vegetation planting after
Hurricane Charley;
*Providing funding and a forum for
the Captiva hurricane committee;


site, www.captivacommunitypanel.com,
and have been presented to Captivans at
numerous meetings.
Initial results indicate rainfall and
associated runoff was a driving force in
pushing pollutants into the water. But
where were those pollutants generated,
and what could reasonably be done about
that? That is the focus of Year 2 testing,
which will rely on Year 1 data to identify
possible sources.
What's the goal? Simply, to keep the
island's waters cleaner by lessening the
pollutants coming off the island itself.
What comes down the river or in from
the gulf is another matter, and something
islanders need to be vigilant about. But
water quality has to start in our own back-
yards, and the panel hopes this study will
provide Captivans hard data upon which
to make decisions to improve nearshore
water quality.
The panel took this approach to put
science first; to develop rigorous data
and proven facts gathered by respected
scientists well versed in the islands; to
define actual conditions and then decide
what steps should be taken to change this
situation. If no further action is necessary,
great; if some tough decisions are called
for, great -- but, either way, Captivans will
have facts to back up whatever comes
next.
The panel welcomes public input
and volunteers, and invites the public to
attend its monthly meetings, typically
held on the second Tuesday of the month
beginning at 9 a.m. at 'Tween Waters
Inn. More information is available online
at www.captivacommunitypanel.com.

Her sister had to stay
behind. "Obviously she was
bruised and sore," said Dr.
PJ. "Even with the encour-
agement of watching her sib-
ling fly, she didn't want to.'
However, she soon began
eating herring and ladyfish on
her own. Sta f noted her glid-
ing down from a high perch
on Sunday, April 18.
The next day the osprey
was seen flying in the cage,
and is now days from getting
her visa back to the Palms of
Sanibel.

CROW Case Of The Week:

Osprey
by Brian Johnson
The wild
Weather of
i C; Ithe past two
r~f~weekends brought
down dozens of
palm fronds on the
Sanibel Causeway
and stirred up at
/ -1 least one osprey
S-nest on Sanibel.
On Sunday, April
11, Gloria from the
Palms of Sanibel, a collection of cottages
on the east end of Sanibel, contacted
CROW about two grounded ospreys.
CROW volunteer Renee Keller and
her daughter Hailey went to the scene,
captured the pair and took them back to
the clinic.
"They were wet and a bit bedraggled,"
said CROW Vet Dr. PJ Deitschel. "We
dried them off, gave them arnica and
fluids, and got them into a dark cage to
rest. "
The larger juvenile weighed 1.67 kilo-
grams while her sister weighed 1.27 kilo-
grams. The larger one had broken blood
feathers, possibly from a collision with a
fence at the cottages.
The next day the birds were pretty
alert and showed no signs of internal
injuries. Dr. PJ and Dr. Amber gave them
subcutaneous fluids and hand-fed them
pieces of fish. They looked good enough
to go outside to the osprey compound, so
the two vets carried the osprey folded up


Close up the osprey looks very alert

in towels out of the hospital and across
the CROW grounds.
By the following day the smaller one
was flying happily around the osprey
compound and ready for release. She
went back to the east end on Wednesday,
April 14. Staff rehabilitator Cat Turner
reported an excellent release: the bird
immediately flew to the top of a roof and
was in striking distance of the nest.

Oxbow And Riverlore Cruises Return


River cruise looking down Oxbow
Take the Caloosahatchee Oxbow and Riverlore Cruise in May and learn about
May 2 and also on Mother's Day, May 9, explores the meanders of the his-
toric upriver Caloosahatchee. We follow the river back to a time when a waterfall
served as the headwaters of the Caloosahatchee and settlers braved living amongst
the wilderness.
The 2.5-hour adventure begins by locking through the WP Franklin Lock in Olga.
Heading east toward Alva, you'll enter the historic bends of the river and revisit the
activities of the pioneers who traveled the same river to find paradise. Stories of the
settlements and their adventures are blended with an understanding of the river's
oxbows, the wild creatures that call it home and the challenges the river faces.
The tour is guided by Rae Ann Wessel, a river researcher, long-time river advocate,
historian and SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation) natural resource policy
director. The vessel is the stable and spacious 47-passenger Manatee Rover pontoon
boat that runs daily manatee tours. All seats have a great view for photographs and
bird watching.
Cruises depart from the WP Franklin Lock & Dam off SR 80 in Olga at 1 p.m. and
return by 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 per person, with advance reservations required
by calling SCCF at 472-2329 by 3 p.m. on Friday, April 30 for the May 2 cruise and
by 3 p.m. on Friday, May 7 for the May 9 cruise. Space is limited.#

The Be I + I
OfT t O ThfOGU

YerAr HO [ 66
by Capt
Matt Mitchell

has been the
T otfshitaple this
last month and just
when I thought
it could not get
any better, it did. I
have been catching
good sized trout on
shrimp and shrimp-
pattern lures but last week the bigger
trout really started to respond to live
white bait some of the biggest trout
caught I have seen in a long time.
One real pig this week measured
26 inches with a 12-inch-plus girth. It's
amazing how fat trout get when they
reach this size. This fish must have
weighed over five pounds. Watching the
trout pop and chase the big white baits


around is almost as much fun as catching
them.
Most of the bigger trout I have been
catching are in relatively shallow water
of roughly two to three feet. Finding the
right bottom has been the key. I look
for what I call salt and pepper bottom:
healthy grass with sandholes. Close prox-
imity to deeper water seems to help too.
I've been targeting flats or humps close to
the intercoastal. These big trout are much
more spooky than their smaller broth-
ers so sit way off and make long casts.
Freeline live white baits or fish them
under a popping cork. These fish seem to
be feeding better on the incoming tide but
I'm catching them on both tides.
Along with the trout out on the flats
there have been jacks, bluefish, big
Spanish mackerel, sharks and a few
pompano. Keep your eyes open for birds
working to find hot action and a mixed
bag of fish. While doing the trout thing
one day we saw birds down close to the
water and motored up to see what was
going on. As we got closer we could see
huge splashes on the surface. Throwing
baits into the commotion we imediatley
hooked up on a 10-pound-plus jack


which ran 100 yards of line off the light
trout tackle in about 30 seconds. These
big jacks will eat just about anything
thrown at them and are a great way
to learn how to fight a big fish on light
tackle.
While running in from a charter in
the bay this week I saw two tripletail.
One small fish was on an old plastic
bait bucket that I almost hit; then not a
quarter-mile later there was a keeper on
a crab pot buoy. After shutting down the
boat and coming back up on the marker,
I tossed a live shrimp on a bobber up
close to the tripletail which the fish imme-
diatly ate.
It's always nice to have the heads up
of seeing a small tripletail to make you
say, "Maybe I should keep my eyes open
for tripletail." After a great day fishing
the tripletail was a tasty bonus fish to end
the day for my clients. With stone crab
pots only out on the gulfside for another
month, make some time to go run them
a few last times before they are gone.
Although I have not done any tarpon
fishing yet this season I have been seeing
more and more poons around the bay.
While riding by marker 20 this week I
saw a boat hooked up with a jumping
tarpon which looked to be around 100
taro' "Jsioe we noew St. James City and a few rolls between
the Flamingo Bay channel and the clam
leases. I also heard reports this week of
pods of tarpon off Knapps Point on the
gulfside of Sanibel.

watch for working birds to find big jacks

have started bringing a few bigger sticks
in case I run across a pod of tarpon.
Usually my first tarpon of the season
comes unexpectedly while trout fishing
on the flats and is over after just a few

juSh rk fishing continues to improve
with tons of little blacktips invading the
flats. Twice this week I had hungry sharks
grab the trout an angler was bringing in
to the boat. These four- to five-foot black-
tips gave us no chance on the light trout
tackle and light leader, quickly screaming

will be the House speaker next year.
The referenced article (below) provides
some highlights of this week's presenta-
tion of the council's risk assessment.
The committee's draft reflects efforts of
the Captiva Erosion Prevention District
(CEPD) and the FSBPA (Florida Shore
and Beach Presewvation Association)
which brought up an important issue
regarding the protection of offshore sand
sources for necessary beach nourish-
ments.
The draft bill will, as Debbie Flack of
the FSBPA said,"...no doubt serve as the
foundation for any future legislative con-
sideration of the issue.
Lee County, local municipal govern-
ments and responsible private organiza-
tions provided resolutions and contacted
their opposing drilling. Important par-
ticipants in the process included BPA,
CEPD, CCP, COTI, Fort Myers Beach,
Sanibel, SCCF, The League of Women
Voters, as well as many other local friends
of the environment and the Florida econ-
omy. With this short-term achievement
under our belts, the overriding concern
still remains; our vigilance re this impor-
tant issue must remain and increase in
intensity as well.
Captiva and Sanibel organizations and
individuals who sat on the sidelines while
others did the heavy lifting will wake up
only with the encouragement of member-
ships. Have you written your local organi-
zation, legislators or newspapers lately?

Florida's beaches, coastal econo-
mya olage n rinsom and waters:
The Obama administration's recent
support of oil drilling in federal waters
represents new challenges and threats to
Florida's environment and tourist econ-
omy. However, a decision in the Florida
House offers some near term encourage-
ment that there will be no oil and gas
drilling legislation approved in the 2010
legislative session.
Just yesterday, Winter Park
Representative Dean Cannon (R), chair
of the House Select Policy Council, made
an important announcement re offshore
drilling in Florida waters. With less than
two weeks left in this session, Cannon
expressed, "It is not the right time to vote
on this issue. This is a bicameral process
and I haven't seen any evidence that
would suggest that our counterparts in
the Senate have an appetite for this issue
this year."
The select committee began a review
of the draft that, if passed, would have
allowed drilling rigs in State waters within
three miles of our shores. However,
before we conclude our waters are safe,
please note that Rep. Cannon has stated
this draft will be the house's starting
position in the next legislative session in
2011. Should House Republicans retain
their majority, it is expected that Cannon

Johnny Cash
fr and his music
at Broadway Palm
Dinner Theatre,
C and that translates
to a memorable
evening of ener-
1 getic song and
1 ~dance during Ring
of Fire. Every actor
comes on stage and says "I'm Johnny
Cash," including the women. Even the


wait staff says the same thing as they
lead you to your table. Through Cash's
songs, the actors take us on a musical
tour through the spirit of Cash's life,
"ork innteheC con fi Ids his rloe afair
lems, and his prison experiences.
The show features eight talented
singers and a terrific six-piece orchestra
right on stage, performing over 30 musi-
cal numbers. Cast members are Adam
Clough, Kelly Cusimano, Diana Fox,
Mike Long, Todd Meredith, Margie Mills,
Scott Moreau and Marija Reiff. There's
very little dialogue in the show. Long,
in the Ragged Old Flag number speaks
passionately about Cash's thoughts on
patriotism. It grabs you.
Reiff is a hoot as a contender at the
Grand Ole Oply singing Flushed From
the Bathroom of Your Heart. While


Ring of Fire cast members and musicians
the show is about Cash's music, not
his voice, Moreau comes the closest to
sounding like the revered man in black,
especially in Folsom Prison Blues and
Cocaine Blues.
Meredith puts a clever comical twist
on A Boy Named Sue, Reiff, Cusimano,
and Fox are great in the spirited Sunday
Morning Coming Dowun. The surprise
musical number is All Over Again, sung
passionately and beautifully by Mills. A
real audience pleaser. Man in Black, fea-
turing Long and company, explains why
Cash always wore black.
You feel his grief. The show ends
with the entire cast singing I've Been
Everywhere, playing guitars and bringing
down the house.


The musicians play a huge role. Jason
J. Labrador on fiddle, John F. McCarty
and Tom Weaver on guitar, Chris Rose
on bass, and Loren Strickland at the key-
board, perform right along with the sing-
ers and also have their own toe-stompin
solo number. The job of percussion is
shared by Tim Capel, Rich DeGenero
and Gary Leone.
Ring of Fire is directed and choreo-
graphed by Ann Nieman. It plays through
June 5 at Broadway Palm, 1380 Colonial
Boulevard. For tickets call 278-4422, or

Showing In

Naples I 1
T~he colorful paintings of Sanibel
Artist Barbara Z. Lipman are being
Introduced to the art world of
Southwest Florida at a major showing
at the Sweet Art Gallery in Naples. The
opening reception is on Friday, May 14
from 6 to 9 p.m.
Lipman will now divide her year
and her art presentations between I 5 1
the Baltimore area and south Florida.
She has shown in various galleries in
Washington, DC, Richmond, Virginia,
Vail, Colorado, Hong Kong, and, of L J
course, Baltimore. She has had many
one-woman shows.
Her sense and statement of her art is
simple: "The exuberance of life, through
color, and my feelings and impressions on
paper of the objects I am reacting to. To
me it is all about color, color, and more
color... and movement... and pattern!"
In Lipman's small studio in a condo
on Sanibel, color becomes poetry on
canvas. The walls of her home are a stu-
dio presentation of her talent. Now, the I
art-loving public is invited into her world.
The Sweet Art Gallery is at 2054 Trade
Center Way, Naples.M

a recent report stating the glaciers in the

He said, "It's perfectly OK to use the
ocean and what's on the planet, it s not
OK to use things up, to demolish what
we found when we got here. "More and
more I'm starting to realize that nature
and human dignity require each other." In
addition to taking a lot out of the oceans
we also put a lot in, nutrients, chemicals,
fertilizers, things that pollute the ocean
and affect mankind. "The incredible rates
of cancer that we see, are to a large
extent, the inevitable results of what


we've been doing to pollute the world
around us.
Safina said there's a third more carbon
dioxide in the atmosphere now than 300
years ago, and it's changing the heat bal-
ance of the atmosphere. The oceans are
absorbing the majority of the extra heat.
"If they didn't, the air would be warm-

April 13 at BIG

The institute
uses science, art, and literature to inspire
a closer bond with nature, especially the
sea. Safina was twice named one of the
100 Notable Conservationists of the 20th
Century. He took the audience on a tour
of the oceans saying they have changed
greatly. The population of blue tuna
off the coast of the United States and
Canada has plummeted 90 percent since
the 1970s and is now at the lowest level
in history. The orange roughy that we
used to enjoy in restaurants is no longer
on menus because we ate them all.
Safina said people have become a
force of nature affecting everything.
We are the dominant source of how

what will happen in the future including

offer rides in a a vintage British sports car from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a $5 donation

Tea is not just a beverage in England, it' sa traditional between-meal treat, usually
served mid-afternoon. It consists of homemade scones, clotted cream, strawberry jam
and you guessed a cup of tea. Drink it hot with milk and sugar if you want to do as
the English do. And if you re wondering what clotted cream is, don t be put off by the
name. This is an extra thick cream with a consistency somewhere between butter and
ice cream. It s considered a delicious treat in England, where it s also served with fresh
strawberries instead of preserves.
East End Deli is at 459 Periwinkle Way, phone 472-9622.

Around The Islands With Anne
Sanibel Home Furnishings Presents
Turnkey Package In New Space
by Anne Mitchell
Sanibel Home Furnishings has just launched a 10 per-
cent off floor model sale on everything in the store. This
Sis a wonderful opportunity for a real savings on an accent
piece, a new chair or sofa or one of the many painted furni-
ture items that have a true Sanibel flair.
"" I One of the best aspects of shopping at Sanibel Home
Furnishings is that you can have your purchases right away.
The owners keep lots of items on the floor so they re available
a ~for immediate delivery. So unless you have a custom order, you
...= won t have to wait to add that special new piece to your decor.
If you want the Sanibel style, start here. The buyers are always
bringing in sea life- and animal-themed accents to complement the casual-but-elegant
furniture. Paint colors reflect the hues of the gulf, of sea glass and seashells. Even
chandeliers are crafted from Sanibel seashells.
Sanibel Home Furnishings has added a new feature in the recently-acquired space
formerly occupied by Three Crafty Ladies (which moved down the block). It is able to
present a condo setting complete with living room, dining area, master bedroom and
guest bedroom to show off the range of products available.
"It shows customers our kind of decorating, the complete, turnkey package," said
Rusty Souers, manager.
Souers said sleeper sofas are always in high demand on the islands therefore the
store keeps plenty in stock, opting to carry the Wesley Hall brand with 7-inch thick
mattresses so that even unexpected guests can have a good night s sleep. The sofa
fabrics come in countless combinations of pastels and brights that can be mixed and
matched with prints such as seashells, flamingoes and abstracts.
Customers are going ga-ga over the new collection of Herend fine porcelain figures
from Hungary, a craft that dates back to 1826 when the company catered to royalty.
Herend s trademark hand-painted fishnet design lends itself beautifully to many local
seashell species such as the conch and the tulip plus other critters, even an alligator.
To complete the line-up, the store carries several collections of rugs, including
Company C, which come in many sizes and countless designs and color combinations.
There is also a large selection of bed linens in sherbet colors to mix and match.
Sanibel Home Furnishings is atl618 Periwinkle Way in Heart of the Island Shops,

to a quiet, kindly man whose trade is the preparation of the dead
for cremation.
Daigo goes from. the esoteric idealism of a classical musician
to the practical realities of a husband and prospective father; in that transformation he
perhaps finds an understanding and less resentment of his own long absent, neglectful
parent.
We are witness to acceptance at the end of life of what is important: humanity, love
and the reality of human failings in ourselves and others. Forgiveness and understand-

ing, though often coming too late and surrounded by the finality of death, are better
balms to the soul than if not experienced at all. A catharsis culminates in the quiet sol-
emn beauty of a caring Japanese cultural ceremony honoring life in death.
This is sometimes not an easy film to watch, but it is a masterful representation of
the universal philosophical compromises with which we are often confronted. While
this film captures the unique Japanese way of death, we can identify from our own
experiences the gratitude we feel toward those who furnish comfort and caring in their
professions of arrangements for the deceased.
The film is in Japanese with English subtitles and has a running time of 130 min-
utes. It is rated PG-13 for subject matter. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at BIG
ARTS in advance or on the evening of the showing.
Refreshments will be served on the Gainer Veranda following the film. Hyde Tucker
will introduce the film and lead the discussion afterward. Phone 395-0900 for further
information.M

Meet The Artist Reception


Book Signing And
Poetry Giveaway
Sanibel poet Ray Buck will make a
second appearance at the Island
SBook Nook on Friday, April 30,
1:45 to 3:45 p.m. Buck will be giv-
ing away copies of his poetry, as well
as signing copies of his new book of
poetry, South of Providence. At 4 p.m.
Buck will join fellows writers and poets
for the Open Mic at The Bean, where he
will read some of his newest poetry.
Buck, who read a number of his
poems at the Sanibel Library's celebra-
tion on National Poetry Day, gave away
sheets of his poetry at the Island Seniors
Book Fair, and found many takers stand-
ing around reading his verse.
It was at his first book signing at the
Island Book Nook several months ago
that he got the idea of giving away, as
well as selling, his poetry. "Poets," he
said, "know they are not going to make
money, get rich. They just want to be
read. Of course, having someone take
awa the 90 plus poems in South of
Providence to read and enjoy, as well as
the free sheets, would be nice too." The
Island Book Nook is at 2330 Palm Ridge
Road.#

Autism Speaker

Patrick O'Sullivan, manager of
The Autism Fund, Inc., spoke to
local members of the Sanibel-Captiva
Chamber of Commerce at the monthly

appear on the autism spectrum.
The Autism Fund is a Sanibel based
501(c)3 charity that raises money for
children living in Lee and Collier coun-
ties who have symptoms on the autism
spectrum and whose families are unable
to afford treatment. O'Sullivan explained
the benefits of ABA (applied behavioral
analysis) therapy, especially for children
under the age of five who have symptoms
on the autism spectrum.
Despite the effectiveness of this vital
treatment, many insurance companies
do not cover its cost because they deem
it as educational rather than a medical
treatment, and also because self-funded
insurance plans are not required to follow
the Florida law mandating coverage for
autism treatment, leaving many families
with the financial burden of providing
treatment for their children. The Autism
Fund was created to help alleviate this
burden for families with the greatest need
through grants paid directly to therapy
providers.
The Autism Fund board thanks all the
chamber members in attendance for the
opportunity to meet and speak to them,
and would particularly like to acknowl-
edge Scott Thompson of Servicemaster
for donating to the fund an advertising
space in the chamber of commerce visi-
tors' bureau for the next month.

research, on how you can help, or to

As they took the course, approximately 100 members of The Sanctuary watched

Tphe Sanctuary Golf Club held an exhibition on April 12 to benefit the South
SFlorida PGA Foundation.
SSanctuary club members responded enthusiastically to the appeal as it offered
a venue to watch their golf pros in action and support the foundation at the same
time. The exhibition raised over $7,500 for junior golf initiatives.
Designed by Ed Lockard, director of golf, the event featured Lockard and Head
Golf Pro Drew Donnelly versus staff professionals Laura Tereby and John Pazdera
in three formats: a six-hole better-ball, a six-hole scramble, and a six-hole alternative
scramble .
The day started with lunch at The Sanctuany Clubhouse followed by bidding for the
caddy positions. Bob Chrenc, Steve Klug, Diane Knight and John Schubert made suc-
cessful bids to caddy for the pros, netting over $4,000.

Lazy Flamingo

Flamingo was all feathered up for the game but they could t quite recover from
an early 9-2 deficit they fell into at the hands of Bailey's Baggers.
Despair never clutched the Flamingo heart though. The Lazy Flamingo picked up
their beaks and began pecking away at the Bailey's lead. By the last inning the Lazy
narrowed the score to a 2-mun difference. Some great fielding made by the Bailey's
however, stopped the Lazy Flamingo in mid-flight.
"We flocked up," said Lazy Captain Tracy Bmunner. "Those first two innings really
clipped our wings.
The final score was 15-13 with Bailey s pulling out the victory. For the Baggers
it was a must-win. Now with a .500 record, they are still in the hunt to make the
post-season tournament. The odds are stacked against them though being two games
behind the other teams and only four weeks left in the season. The league is rampant
with rumors of the return of Harold "The Hammer" Law. If twue, such an event could
be the tipping point in favor of the Bailey s team. "Beware of the Baggers," warned
veteran Scott Conway.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 23, 2010 45
Never in ECHL history has a team come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series.
In fact, only one team has come back to win three straight after losing three straight
games. That team was the Cincinnati Cyclones against Atlantic City in 2003.
Interestingly, the Cincinnati coach that year was Malcolm Cameron, the present
Everblades coach.
After losing 7-6 and 5-4 in Games One and Two in Reading, Florida was defeated
2-1 on home ice last Saturday.
Long Homestand Welcomed by Miracle
The Class A Fort Myers Miracle began a nine-game home stand this week at
Hammond Stadium after struggling to a 2-7 season start.
Fort Myers faces Charlotte for three games, Monday through Wednesday, two
against Bradenton Thursday and Friday, and then the Palm Beach Cardinals provide
the weekend opposition, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Offense has been the big early season problem as the Miracle failed to score more
than three runs in any of those first nine games.M


The jump
start had the Twins in first place in the
American League Central Division with
a 1-1/2-game lead over the Detroit
Tigers. We should add, however, that
the Twins are strong favorites to repeat
as Central Division champs.
It s also obvious that the three big
bats in the Minnesota lineup have
adjusted well to their new digs. Through
those first 13 games, Joe Mauer, the
reigning American League MVP was
hitting .378; Justin Morneau, .319, and
Michael Cuddyer, .340.
No question that Mauer is earning
the $184 million in his new eight-year
contract.
The beautiful Target Field has cre-
ated a vast new revenue stream for the
Twins despite the fact that its 39,500-
seat capacity is 16,000 less than the
Metrodome a site hated by most
opposing teams.
More than two million tickets had
been sold weeks before the 2010 sea-
son even began.
"The revenues to the Twins from
the Metrodome were extremely low. It
was time to get a baseball park that is
designed specifically for baseball fans
and baseball players. We re going to
have some weather challenges, but I
think we have technology on our side.
The ballpark is built to handle weather,
Twins General Manager Bill Smith said
recently.
These new revenues allowed the
Twins to increase last season s payroll
of about $65 million to nearly $100
million this year. That 50 percent
jump propels their payroll into Major
League s top 10
The question is asked often why the
new stadium does not include a retract-
able roof in view of Minnesota s well-
known bitter weather? It took nearly
a decade of difficult wrangling and
negotiations to arrange financing for the
$550-million Target Field.
Another $150 million would have
been required for a retractable roof and
that money was just not available.
A new stadium, sold-out crowds, a
.692 record through the first two weeks
- it was a great season start for the
Minnesota Twins.
Everblades Need Historic
Comeback to Avoid Elmination
Down three games to none in their
best-of-seven playoff series against the
Reading Royals, the Florida Everblades
faced crucial Game Four Tuesday night
at Germain Arena. All three losses were
by one goal each.

Janice smart, Jane Parker, Alex Weiner, Birdie Anderson, Liddy Johnson, and Shirley
Miller

Young described today's global invest-
ment arena as a giant three-dimensional
jig-saw puzzle with constantly moving
parts. Importantly, while the basics of
investment decision making have not nec-
essarily changed much, it has become a lot
more important to understand diversifica-
tion within a more global context. Young
stressed that investment success begins
with creating the appropriate structure
aimed at meeting each individual's goals,
while following a consistent process and
discipline to carry out that plan.
During the Q&A period, he discussed
the trust company's current investing strat-
egy with regard to corporate and municipal
bonds, equities, and gold. He talked about
the importance of asset diversification, Jim Young and Adria Starkey
preservation of capital, and growth oppor-
tunities in markets such as Brazil, India and China.
"I can't adequately describe how much I enjoyed speaking to such a wonderful
group," said Young. "Their interest level and enthusiasm for wanting to know more,
not just about financial and investment matters, but issues and concerns of a more
glbalh ntre is clearly evident and indeed
"We look forward to expanding upon
this educational concept that was started
several years ago by our director and
today's hostess, Ginny Fleming, Terry Igo
and now Adria Starkey.
Marlene Donaldson, a participant,
enjoyed receiving a certificate. "I am
very appreciative to the Sanibel Captiva
Trust Company for sponsoring the series Barrier Island
- I learned a lot, and have a homework
assignment that will take me most of the Title Services, Inc.
summer to complete!"M Yul e(ci t 4 -6D8i eec

The ladies attending

ated" on April 13 after
completing a series of
financial seminars this

Trust Company CEO
Al Hanser congratulated

Jim Yung, enior Sylvia Hutchinson presents Marlene Donaldson with a cer-
portfolio manager at trust tificate
company, talked about
essential investing strategies
and the current climate in the global equities markets.
Young noted the increasing number of women in the work force and their role in
managing household finances and assets.
Young went on to suggest that since, statistically, women live longer than men, they
must ask themselves three important questions: Do I have enough money to last my
lifetime? If not, what I can do to make that better? And what can I do to preserve the
wealth I already have?

Becky Skog took first place honors on April 19 in the final qualifying mini-tour-
uled for Monday, April 26, 6 p.m. at American Legion Post 123. Runner-up
was Scott Marcelais and third place winner was Pete Mindel.
By placing in the final qualifying tournament, Marcelais and Mindel join Butch
Bouchard, Bob Buntrock, John Earle, Matt Hall, Darlene Rizzo and Becky Skog on
April 26 to determine the best cribbage player on Sanibel and Captiva.
Multiple winners in four qualifying tournaments were Becky Skog, Butch Bouchard
an Bob Buntrock. This makes them the favorites to win the Champion of Champions
Hands of 24 points were posted by Pete Mindel and Joan Davey in the April 19
mini-tournament. Davey also won four games in a row and seemed to have a lock on
first, second, or third place. Her hopes were dashed, however, when she suffered a
crushing 78-point skunking at the hands of John Earle.

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

with your windows.
Once you have fully considered the
functional requirements, you can begin
to look at designs that meet the decora-
~tive needs of the window and room as a
ovierswhole. A well-designed window fashion
rovidersharmonizes with the rest of the room and
adds to the sense of unity. It is in scale
with the room and its furnishings and is
well-proportioned.
To determine the design of the treat-
~ments, consider your preference in deco-
* rating style, the degree of formality you
want and the overall mood you want to
achieve.
Do you want to make a bold, deco-
rative statement, or use your window
treatment of a subtle background to your
furnishings? Sometimes it's veny impor-
tant to design your windows not only to
hide an unpleasant view, but to allow
for plenty of sunshine. Be sure to think
through all the needs of your room before
deciding on a specific window treatment
Design.
