its 100th year on the island with
birthday party at the Mucky Duck
on Captiva on June 6.
The fundraiser will benefit the Sanibel
School Fund, a nonprofit organization
that raises money to pay for programs
such as foreign-language instruction and
technology enhancements. Fundraising
by parents and friends to pay for these
programs earned The Sanibel School the
Blue Ribbon designation from the U.S.
Department of Education.
Victor Mayeron, the owner of the
Mucky Duck, is hosting the event. "T've
had children graduate from the Sanibel
School and it s been an integral part of
our island community," Mayeron says.
Mayeron purchased an electric car that
the School Fund recently auctioned at its
annual car fundraiser. Joanne Ciancio of
Lakewood, New Jersey, won and chose
to accept the $7,500 cash option instead
of the car. "T've had my eye on that
red electric car and buying it helps the
school," Mayeron says.
"Victor and the staff at Mucky Duck
have always been big supporters of the
public school," says Craig Holston, presi-
dent of the Sanibel School Fund. "We're
thrilled to have a party at the world-
famous beachfront restaurant.
The celebration will start at noon and
will last until 4 p.m.. Cost is $15 for

Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane promised,
"We will be great stewards of this."O
Ruane said that Sanibel is much better off than many other cities, having $3.6
million above budget in the coffers. He explained that the city has taken steps to live
within its means by reducing staff, first by attrition and, if necessary, by pay reductions
and staff cuts. The outsourcing of some tasks previously performed by city workers,
such as the maintenance of the sports fields, has reduced expenses.
The meeting was also attended by Dick Ripp and Cecil Pendergrass, Republican
candidates for the District 2 seat on the Lee County Commission. Each candidate gave
a presentation expressing his views on local and county issues.
The next meeting of the Sanibel-Captiva Republican Caucus will be held on May 22

He said that while nationally the economy is slowly starting to recover, municipal

declining property values and the decrease in valorem taxes, as well as shrinking reve.

just make its way to our November
ballot, offered to the voters by
legislative leaders in Tallahassee. It is
proposed by Rep. Dorothy Hukill under
the leadership of Speaker-to-be Dean
Cannon, and Senate President-to-be
Mike Haridopolos. The legislature will
shortly vote on whether to offer voters
this fall a deviously packaged tempt-
ing treat in all-American wrapping: the
UNFair Districts amendment.
This amendment wrapped in apple
covering will essentially undo all the hard
work by Sanibel citizens and citizens
across the state, and the 1,700,000 sig-
natures of Florida voters gathered over
past months and years to finally rescue
our election process from the jaws of
political gerrymandering and deal making.
The amendment contains language which
allows the legislature to substitute the
words "communities of common interest

in the Lee County schools. The scholar-
ship is $1,250 per year ($5,000 total).
The competition is open all graduating
seniors. Applications are available at most
Lee County high schools (see your guid-
ance counselor) and at Sanibel City Hall.
Applications must be postmarked no
later than June 11, 2010. The scholar-

selection later in June.
Applicants should be aware that aca-
demic records, financial need, extracurric-
ular activities and civic/community service
records are integral parts of the selection
criteria. The application package gives
look at standards that would make docks
environmentally sound and would not be
placed over sea grass and would have
adequate depth at the end of the dock.
Jordan said he doesn t expect to see
a very big change in standards and would
want to see mitigation such as rip-rap
to establish habitat. Permits from other
agencies will still be required.

( m moving to Sanibel." My Mom
announced that to me on the
"phone one day about 12 years
agShe hd vsite er friend Edith Rood
only once and bought a condo within
what seemed like days. "How will I see
you? How will I take care of you?" I
asked. "You'll see more of me than you
do now," she said. We lived only five
blocks apart in Brooklyn but were often
too busy with our lives to get together.
Then like a mistrusting parent whose
child has been impulsive yet again, I took
a trip down here to explore the damage.
It was then that I understood her. Sanibel
was indeed overwhelmingly gorgeous and
had no winter. What could be better? I
helped her fix up her fixer-upper condo
in hat hed it tansfor int a taste e l
was happy. I was too. I felin love w t
the place and her new life and it became
my home away from home. Our new
ho% Mom was right about spending
more time together. I came here often
and we had fun. We photographed anhin-
gas in "Ding" Darling, marveled over the
beauty of Tarpon Bay, and I swam in
that delicious warm gulf every day where
miraculously around sunset everyday
there appeared a group of dolphins on
the horizon. We danced to
steel drum bands at the art
fair and ate great ice cream ...
for a treat at The Bean. We
drew closer and closer. .
My Mom had been diag- ..=A
nosed with breast cancer in
October, 1988 two weeks .
before my wedding. She
struggled with this disease
bitterly, yet courageously
for more than 20 years,
choosing alternative treat-
ments to help her. Sadly,
she died on Tuesday, April
You will never meet
anyone who loved life more Meri Wallace
than she or who fought so
hard to stay alive.
Niravi Bernice Payne was a passion-
ate woman in everything she did. She
had been a civil rights leader, an anti-
war activist and a feminist in the '50s.
Unheard of. I grew up in a home where
we learned to question everything that
was going on and we stood up against
injustice. This was not easy in the '50s. It
made my childhood very different and in
retrospect I thank her for it.
My Mom s profession was a fertility
expert and she helped women to over-
come their emotional blocks to concep-
tion. She was extremely successful in
helping countless couples to have babies.
She wrote a book called The Whole
Person Fertility Solution, which was
later translated into German and Spanish.
Over the years, my Mom and I discov-
ered that there were so many things we
ing care of someone you love also brings
Two years ago, when my Mom
became very ill, my husband and I came
down to Sanibel and stayed with her for
14 months to support her living in her
home. Finally, with tremendous sadness
for us all, I had to take her with me up
to New York so I could continue to care
In the end, my Mom realized her life
as she loved it would never return and
it saddened her. A bout of pneumonia
weakened her and she never regained
her strength. I am now bringing her back
here as she wished. My mother lived a
really good life and made a huge differ-
ence in so many people s lives. She was
my best friend and I will miss her dearly.
I am forever grateful to Sanibel and
the wonderful gift of happiness it gave to
her and to myself. I particularly want to
thank her friends, Sara Jane, her home
care nurse, Claire Lundgren, her Hospice
nurse, her aides, particularly Gina and
Ester. Gina Campbell cared for my Mom
in Florida and New York. These people
gave my Mom, my husband and myself
tremendous love and support particularly
over the last two years. My special thanks
to Dr. LaMotta (and his staff) who repeat-
edly raised our spirits and cared for my
mother with warmth, respect and humor.
I will miss Sanibel but will come here
to visit with Mom over the years. I believe
my Mom is now in Sanibel heaven.

had in common. We loved to photograph
nature, dance to Motown, and watch
sunsets. We travelled to England, Mexico
and a spa. We both got book contracts
at the same time, appeared on TV and

She would call me in the morning in an

Most of us feel secure living on
the islands a very safe and
protected environment for our
families throughout life and well into
our retirement years. Well folks, things
are a changing. We're being attacked,
not physically but via our personal or
business Internet transactions. Are you
keeping any personal data on your com-
puter, are you doing online banking or
investment transactions via computer or
PDA, how about on-line shopping? Are
you filling out computer generated regis-
tration forms with personal information,
such as your Social Security number,
address, birth date, credit card numbers,
information that accesses bank accounts
or brokerage accounts? Our speaker
last week, Matthew Reed, president
of Zebis, Inc., Technology Service &
Consulting headquartered on Sanibel,
has some very important advice for all
of us... maybe it's time to think about
the security of this information.
We are in an information technologi-
cal and audio-visual world. We are using
our computers and PDA devices ran-
domly without much thought about the
personal information we are storing on or
distributing via our computers. Matthew
talked a great deal about keyloggers. He
explained this pretty well. "A keylogger
is a small software program that can sit
on your computer and send anything you
type to a third party. Keystroke logging
(often called keylogging) is the practice of
tracking (or logging) the keys struck on
a keyboard, typically in a covert manner
so that the person using the keyboard is
unaware that their actions are being mon-
itored. There are numerous keylogging
methods, ranging from hardware and
software-based to electromagnetic and
acoustic analysis. Keylogger programs cir-
cumvent encryption security. When you
type in your credit card information for
a purchase, such as your billing address,
security code and actual credit card num-
ber, this information is easily captured
and sent to a third party if a keylogger
program exists on the computer you are
How do keyloggers get on to your
computer? Pretty easily. Someone will
send you something, when you click it, a
keylogger will be installed on your com-
puter directly. Portable flash drives can
carry a keylogger from one computer to
another, computer networking, open-
ing a bogus computer alert, insecure
software Web browsers, public comput-
ers (libraries, cruise ships), and the list
goes on. Keyloggers present a threat to
every unprotected computer user. Cyber
criminals can get account numbers, PIN
codes, email addresses, and user names.
Keyloggers are used not only for personal
information but also as tools in both
industrial and political espionage.
Here are some data protection tips
from Matthew: "Erase sensitive data from
your computer. Delete is not synony-
mous with erase. You will need to utilize
software that will erase your informa-
a : l-T Z rbrda
and Nortel offer the most robust protec-
tion. Use a strong encryption program.
Avoid saving passwords for banking,
PayPal in your Web browser. Use strong
passwords for access to important Web
sites and information. "Strong" includes
numbers, symbols, upper and lower case
letters. Use fictitious answers for security
questions. Do not give in to "phishing"
schemes. Know that reputable companies
will not request personal information via
e-mail. Be careful when you are redirect-
ed to another Web site. Using one-time
passwords is completely keylogger-safe
because the recorded password is always
invalidated as soon as it's used. When
using off-site storage or cloud computing,
encrypt all data or do not store sensitive
data on those servers.
Matthew s presentation was eye open-
ing. It seems that as we go forward in the
computer age, it is and will be a necessity
to protect our private and business infor-
mation from cyber criminals. Companies
such as Zebis, Inc. are there to help us
understand how to utilize computer tech-
nology, maximize the technology, and
protect important information from cyber

Beachview Steakhouse. If you would like
information regarding Rotary or how to

tion. This is completely necessary if you
donate or sell your computer. To be safe
always assume any computer that is not '
your own has a keylogger installed, and
avoid performing any sensitive tasks that
would be attractive to a thief. Establish a
separate network for casual users in your
office and for your guests at home. Use
the keyboard to close any unrequested
windows that appear on your computer
instead of clicking. Closing a window with
the keyboard can generally be done by
pressing alt+f4 when the window is dis-
played. Upgrade to Opera or Firefox for
your Web browsing. Firewalls from Cisco

The club also welcomed back Doris
Trowbridge, a past president of the
club, who is rejoining after several years'
absence; Trowbridge was unable to attend
the induction event.

Children Celebrate Ealrth Day
Tphe Children's Education Center of the Islands has welcomed park rangers
From the JN "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge three times this month.
SPark Ranger and Environmental Education Specialist and Refuge Supervisor
Toni Westland and Park Ranger Intern Cindy first visited the children and educated
them about turtles on Sanibel. They brought props for the children to look at, read
stories and taught the children songs.
The second visit was made by Volunteer Christina Starkey and Park Ranger Intern
Cindy. On this visit, the children were taught about birds on Sanibel. They sang the
song Five Little Ducks,and were able to look at many feathers, props, and pictures of
native species of birds.
The third visit was also made by Volunteer Christina Starkey with Park Ranger
Intern Brooke. The Children learned all about raccoons on this visit.
The Children's Education Center is so appreciative of the park rangers, volunteers
and interns and their support for the school to educate
the children and to donate their time to events such as the Spring Festival.
April's theme at the school has been learning about Sanibel's geography, beaches,
animals, sealife and plants. This theme coincided with the celebration of Earth Day and
was a chance to educate the children about the importance of taking care of mother
earth. Special Earth Day art projects were made by every class, and all classes deco-
rated "litter bags" and cleaned the front and back of the school. Pre-K painted Earth
Day shirts and made a Sanibel model map of the island.M

self insure, Heidrick recommended raising
the deductibles to the highest amounts.
Regarding property insurance, in Florida
in 2009, two thirds of the insurance com-
panies lost money and 10 percent went
insolvent or into receivership.
"Florida is a risky place to live and
therefore insurance is expensive," said
Heidrick. Since 2007, non-catastrophic
losses increased 65 percent while premi-
ums have gone down by 30 percent. This
trend will lead to more companies failing
and lack of availability of insurance prod-
Regarding wind insurance, the state-
run Citizens Group has recapitalized so
it is now prepared again for the 25-year
storm, but not the 100-year storm. Three
bills are in state legislation this week which
will hopefully pass and provide more con-
sumer protection. If they don't pass, I rec-
ommend they just get added to the back of
the health care or cap and trade bills. No
one will ever know.

National Safe Boating Week
A startling number of boating accident deaths occur each year because peo-
ple are not wearing a life jacket. The leading cause of these deaths was drown-
ing. Rear Admiral James A. Watson, the Director of Prevention Policy of the United
States Coast Guard, stated that in over two thirds of fatal boating accidents, people
weren't wearing life jackets.
During National Safe Boating Week (May 22-28) the United States Power
Squadrons will encourage all recreational boaters to wear a life jacket. It is also recom-
mended that the over 70 million recreational boaters in the U.S. without boating train-
ing register for a safe boating course to protect them and their families.
Greg Scotten, chairman of the USPS Marketing/PR Committee, said, "This year,
in the weeks leading up to and following National Safe Boating Week, over 450 loca-
tions will be offering programs in America s Boating Course 3rd Edition as well as criti-
cal seminars and demonstration days.
Scotten encourages all recreational boaters to take personal responsibility for their
safety and that of their passengers. Go to www.usps.org and click on Take A Boating

TOurney A Test Of
by Capt. Matt Mitchell
Months Ir th is
spent time fish-
ing and scouting
for snook for the
Cabbage Key 2010
week. With some
of the best snook
anglers in town
entered it was going to be a good indi-
cation of how our snook stocks held up
after the freeze.
In general there were more quality fish
caught than I expected. Even though the
bite was pretty slow with 15 of the 46
teams entered not catching a snook of
any size on the first day, there were still
good numbers of fish over the 33-inch
slot caught and released.
anTrhe tourn tment smapewadsaall catch
team to be measured, photographed
and carefully released unharmed. The
most total inches for two fish over the
two days of fishing was the winner.
The usual format of this tournament is
to bring in two-slot sized fish per day
which are weighed and then released,
but with the emergency closure of our
spring snook season, the format had to
Day one of the tournament we got
on a pretty good bite catching five
snook within a half hour of pulling up
at our first spot. Over the two days we
caught three slot sized fish and only
seven snook total. Our biggest fish
measured only 32 inches. Fishing was
not on fire by any means. I did see good
numbers of snook when I was out scout-
ing but the fish seemed to be very spread
out and were on the move. Though not
in the big numbers of previous years, I
still saw more snook than I expected scat-
tered all over our area.
Congratulations to Team Lake and
Bay Boats which won the tournament
with a total of 78 inches. Day One they
measured a 37-incher, then a monster
41-incher on day two that turned out to
be the biggest fish caught over the two-
day tournament. Thanks again to the
Wells family for another great time at
Trout fishing remains the best I have
seen in years with some real "gator trout"
all over the area. While trying to catch
snook over the last few days we caught
many big trout all of the 23-inch-plus
variety. The trout are simply all over,
from mangroves and flats to the passes
and the beach snags. Use live baits includ-
ing big live shiners and medium-small
pinfish if you're looking for the really big
ones. Both freeline and fishing under a
float work depending on the depth of
water you are targeting them in.
Tarpon fever is really starting to heat
up with reports of fish both gulfside and
in the bay. While I was running around
the sound this week searching for snook I
saw quite a few free-jumping fish. Reports
from other fishing guides were of good
numbers of tarpon in all the usual places
though the majority of the fish reported
were in the south end of the sound and
down south between Knapp's Point and
Fort Myers Beach. With the water tem-
perature at least five degrees cooler than
it was this time last year I am surprised
there are so many tarpon around already.
I am very excited about changing it up
and chasing tarpon this week.
After months of trout, redfish and
sheepshead, my favorite type of fishing of
the year is about to be in full swing.

Season Hatches On Sanibel
On Thursday, April 22 Earth
Day the first snowy plover
O chick hatched on Sanibel. The .*,
mother will remain on the nest until all yl ~~
three of her eggs have hatched. Snowy '
plovers nest on the beach.
As of Friday, April 23, there were six
snowy plover nests on Sanibel, with 17
eggs. Nest #1 hatched all three chicks
on Thursday, April 22. All the nests
are on Sanibel's east end. A Wilson's
plover nest was also staked but it is not
included in the counts.
The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation (SCCF) coordinates the
monitoring of snowy plover nesting on
Sanibel and stakes protective exclo-
sures around the nests. Please do not
enter the staked exclosures and keep
dogs out, as well. When snowy plovers
are not moving, they are extremely .. rJ s
well camouflaged. If a snowy plover is
flushed from its nest, it takes very little *r
time for the hot sun to damage the -
The snowy plover is a state-listed, "l
threatened species on Sanibel. The a
most recent estimate indicates that
around 200 pairs of snowy plovers *. a
remain along the west coast of Florida, *
from the Panhandle through Cape The first snowy plover hatchling of the season
Nesting season runs through August, and they can nest two or three times in one
You can learn more about snowy plovers on Sanibel at the weekly program offered
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 elu-
sive shorebirds in their native habitat. For more information, log onto http://secf.org/

Learn About The Living Things
Under Foot At The Shell Museum
Have you ever wondered what you are walking on or what habitats your feet
are invading as you wade through a lake? Did you know that if you wear
size 10 shoe, it's likely that you are treading on as many as 20,000 critters
beneath each foot, things like midge larvae, scuds, water fleas, crayfish, sponges,
snails, worms, leeches, and nymphs of mayflies, dragonflies and damselflies. These
critters are called benthic invertebrates, organisms without an internal skeleton that
live on the bottom of lakes, ponds, wetlands, rivers, and streams among aquatic
On May 5 at 2 p.m., The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum will host Maran Brainard
Hilgendorf, the communications manager for the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary
Program (CHNEP). Hilgendorf will deliver a program titled, Deep Water Invertebrate
Species Richness and Diversity In Charlotte Harbor Habitats.
Given that these benthic communities are sensitive to changes in the quality of the
water or sediment, they are often used as an environmental indicator to determine the
impact of pollutants, hydrologic alterations, and sediment disturbances. Only in very
severely polluted or disturbed areas are benthic invertebrates absent. Benthic inverte-
brates are critical to environmental health
and yet so little is known about many of
these species. The best known species
are those consumed by humans, including
shrimp, crabs, clams, mussels, and squid.
The CHNEP is a partnership that pro-
tects the estuaries and watersheds from
Venice to Bonita Springs to Winter Haven.
This partnership gives citizens, elected
officials, resource managers, and commer-
cial and recreational resource users in the
4,700-square-mile study area a voice to
address diverse resource management con-
cerns including fish and wildlife habitat loss,
water quality and water flow. The water-
shed in the study area includes all or parts
of Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, Manatee, Polk,
Hardee and Desoto counties.

In the new hospital at CROW there is
a private and quiet Rabbit Room removed
from the other animals. They use a milk
formulated especially for cottontails, and
a salad-blend hay from Oxbow, among
other custom-designed features.
By Day 7 the rabbit was "eating evely-
thing" in sight, including monkey biscuits,
greens, and hay. They discontinued the
pain medication and put him in a minimal
On Day 10 they took another radio-
graph, which revealed healing bones. A
callus had formed to stabilize the fractured
The very next day the cottontail was
sitting happily on top of his hide box in
his hutch. "It was unbelievable to see him
jumping around in such a short time," said
Meanwhile Tina and Tyler called in for
updates, and Drs. PJ and Amber were
able to give them favorable news.
On April 25 CROW released the rabbit
back to Fort Myers. "They let you know
when they're ready," Dr. PJ said. "If you
keep them too long, they can hurt them-
"CROW is a huge blessing," said Tina.
"We are so grateful. They love the animals
enough that the vet was able to get on the
phone and talk, which is a special learning
experience about caring for animals."
CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation
of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife
hospital providing veterinary care for
native and migratory wildlife from the
Gulf Coast of Florida. The hospital
accepts patients seven days a week from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to PO
Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-
3644 or visit: wwwu~.crowulnclinic.0r
On Day 3, after giving him time to
stabilize, Dr. Amber McNamara put him
under anesthesia and took a radiograph.
Looking at the x-ray, they could see that
the front fracture was so displaced that it
required a splint.
The back fracture was in an area that
made it im practical to splint, but they felt
confident, from past cases, that it would
heal well by itself.
The key to recovery would be providing
the right type of supportive care. Success
rates with rabbits tend to be less than with
other animals in many wildlife hospitals
around the U.S. because these creatures
are so high stress; they don't feel ve y
relaxed sitting in a cage when there is a
hawk across the aisle, and a raccoon, per-
haps, ambling around on the floor above.
Over the years Dr. PJ and the CROW
staff have developed a system that
improves the recovery rate, and CROW
has become a model for other organiza-
tions in Southwest Florida.
"The key is good husbandly," Dr. PJ
said. "It s important to provide the right
food and the right environment. That s

Mastersingers Selected To Sing
Starr Warrs Event At Germain Arena
Snow as the greatest film saga of all time, Star Wars will be shown in concert
Sat Germain Arena on May 13 and will feature the Fort Myers Mastersingers.
SThe local group was selected by the producers of the show, which is on a
worldwide tour and will be coming to the United States for a 15-city tour, with Fort
Myers being the first stop.
Star Wars in concert is a unique event that combines John Williams' unforgettable
music performed by symphony orchestra and chorus with specially edited footage
from all six Star Wars movies. Through each piece audiences will experience the key
themes, characters and story elements of the epic Star Wars saga from a new per-
spective. The editors of Lucasfilm have created an original montage on a giant multi-
media screen to accompany each of the musical sections.
"The Mastersingers are already in rehearsals for the show," said Jeff Faux, artistic
director for the group. "We'll be ready. Our singers are experienced enough to handle
this engagement and we look forward to it with excitement."
"It's a huge honor to be selected to participate in a production of this magnitude,'
said Jim George, president of the Mastersingers. "It will be a once-in-a-lifetime expe-
rience for our group. This past season we sang in languages as diverse as Russian,
French, German and Italian, and now we'll be doing alien.
The 70-voice Mastersingers are known for their versatility and innovative program-
ming which was a key factor, according to the producers of the show. The group
appeared with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra in October and recently staged two
opera-in- concert performances in Naples and Fort Myers.M

.ou ve just
of jewelry and are
eager to wear it
and share its bril-
liance with others. But what do you
need to do to ensure than its brilliance
lasts indefinitely? We ve included a few
tipsG nd jewelry, especially colored
gemstones, can be vulnerable to scrapes,
bumps, heat, and chemicals. Some gems
are especially delicate and can be dam-
aged by intense light, extreme dryness,
and sudden temperature changes. The
best way to care for your jewelry is to
recognize these threats and avoid them
Store your gems in cloth-lined com-
partments, preferably with each item in
its own space. Pieces can be wrapped
separately in soft cloth or stored in the
cushioned box or cloth pouch that pro-
tected it when you brought it home from
the store. Do not wrap jewelry in tissue
because you may forget that the item is
stored there and throw that wadded-up
piece of tissue away along with your
precious jewe ry.
When wearing jewelry, avoid rough
wear and chemicals. Put your jewelry
on last, after applying cosmetics and
fragrances. Consider removing jewelry
before cooking, cleaning, gardening, car
repair, swimming, and sports. Household
items contain harsh chemicals, dirt and
rocks can cause scrapes, and chlorine
in water can attack silver, karat gold and
somehk jwelry regularly to ensure that
the settings aren t becoming worn or
loose. Before cleaning jewelry, examine
it closely for damage. Your jeweler will
happily inspect and clean your gems and
jewelry for you at least once every six
months and will make any recommen-
dations for repair. Do not use chemicals
to clean your jewelry unless specifically
recommended by your jeweler because
many gemstones can be damaged and
scarred by even the gentlest of deter-

tain it. Your gems will sparkle for much

Patricia Cable Deeder wrote her first
poem in 1995, a sensitive tribute to her
paternal grandmother wuhom she never
met, as she embarked on a journey
searching for family history. Deeder
writes about discovering southern kin,
men, women, family, love and relation-
ships wlith honesty, taken directly from
the heart. Several libraries in North
Carolina and Tennessee have a collec-
tion of her genealogy-related poetry
available for people wuho are research-
ing their heritage.

~Buell Lee Whitehead. This book,
Buell Lee Whitehead, A True Southern
Treasure, contains exquisite color reproduc-
tions of the artist's work which spans 50
Newsom writes, "He (Whitehead)
excelled in charcoal, oil, pastels 'and engray-
ings to name a few, however his love was
The book, in representing the artist's
works dlso traae his life; e asaborn in
City in 1919 and very early on his family
migrated to a little farm near Fort Myers.
Buell and his family suffered many setbacks:
a hurricane destroyed their home; work
was hard:and hard to come by during the
Depression; and he nearly died from a farm
accident. Possibly his long recuperation dur-
ing childhood enabled him to develop artistic
powers of observation. These were fostered
during his teen years in the Fort Myers
The author, Ronald Newsom, began
collecting the artist's work when he found
a print of Pig Snatcher at a Fort Myers
garage sale. "My love for art and the old
south helped me realize the true quality of
Buell's work," he says.
Buell's art was not static or predictable
like the work of many famous artists; he was
continually exploring different techniques
and representations. This is what makes this
book such a treasure. It is hard to believe
that the same artist in the year 1946 cre-
ated such disparate painting styles: pale
ghostly images of Seminole Family contrast
with Wood Choppers, which has a George
Bellows ruggedness, and his Western litho-
graphs are reminiscent of Georgia O'Keefe.
Travelling the country, he began selling
his work door to door and Newsom docu-
ments his emergence as a successful and
well known artist whose lithographs were
displayed in galleries and purchased by-
major hotels. Nevertheless he continued his
cross-country sales route.
"At the age of 32 he had sold more
pictures than any other artist his age in the
Buell's life as so careful-
ly researched by Newsom a~
is a fascinating-story of
man from humble begin-
nings who attained nearly
everything he sought in
life: artistic excellence and
education in our country's
finest universities and art
academies. He was the
first graduate from the
University of Florida to
earn a Masters of Fine
Arts. However, his cam-
paign to become a Lee
County judge was his last
attempt at public office.
This vey/ readable and
beautifully illustrated book
by Ronald Newsom will be Copra Time
enjoyed by artists, histori-
ans and those of us who appreciate a well
written and carefully researched biography.M

that comes knowing your Sanibel home is well looked after"

One-of-a-kind miniature Sailor's
Valentines are beautifully handcrafted

Prestigiacomo is an award-winning shell
artist and her husband builds the custom
wood display frames for the shell designs.
According to the Prestigiacomos, the
initial interest in shell mosaics followed

PGA Tips For Beginners
Golf A Game
by Matt Oakley,
; hear, there was
J y dd'an amazing fin-
ish to the weekly
PGA Tour event
at Harbour Town,
South Carolina on
April 18. Brian
Davis, a journey-
man pro, was in contention looking for
his first win on tour. On the first playoff
hole against Jim Furyk, Davis hit his
second shot into a hazard. He pitched
his ball towards the green from the
hazard. After the shot he stopped the
event and told everyone that he needed
to call a penalty on himself for touching
a loose impediment in the hazard during
his swing. The two penalty strokes cost
him the playoff and the winner's share
thaeda dwaa $1066milo 00mam ed
ence of $411,000! I don't know about
you, but that kind of money would make
a difference in my life.
The rule that was broken was Rule
13.4-c, Prohibited actions in a hazard:
touch or move a loose impediment lying
in or touching the hazard.
Only in golf would something like this
happen. Can you imagine in the NBA
finals a player stopping the game in the
last seconds saying, "I have to admit I
fouled him during the shot?" How about
during the Super Bowl a lineman stop-
png it e gam and s yinhe sIhave t I'
knewo sfe l ita g tat theh ud lwa ys
know and then have that on his con-
science the rest of his life. CBS even
admitted during the telecast that it took a
magnifying glass to witness the penalty.
No one would have ever known.

Sanibel Softball League
Great White Grill Chomps Royal Shell
by Nick Brown
The Great White Grill eviscerated yet another victim last Thursday night. This time
Their unlucky victim was Royal Shell. Giving up 19 runs in the first three innings,
SRoyal Shell dug themselves into a hole they couldn't recover from. "We got fos-
silized out there," said Shell captain Jesse Orsino. The final score was Great White 22,
Royal Shell 7.
The win keeps the Great White one game behind the first place Rec'N'Crew and half
a game behind Aztec Plumbing.
"The second one of them slips up... the moment we smell blood in the water we will
go in for the kill," said Great White star Brandon Hall.
In the other games of the week, the Rec'N'Crew swooped down and plucked the
feathers off the Lazy Flamingo 16-8; Bailey's Baggers etched All Island Glass 22-6; and
Aztec Plumbing poured Drano down on the Sundial 27-11.
The Sanibel Adult Softball League plays every Wednesday and Thursday night at the

As Red Sox Falter, Rumors Abound
That Ortiz May Be On Trading Bloc
by Ed Frank
Struggling, falling six games out of first place after just 19
in desperate straits.
So don't be surprised if the Red Sox part ways with David
Ortiz if a trade can be made for the big slugger who began the
I2 week batting a measly .160 with only one home run and four
Big Papi, once a hero in the Red Sox Nation with those mon-
strous home runs, is in the final year of a four-year deal that pays
him $12.5 million a year with a club option of another $12.5
million in 2011.
It's a foregone conclusion that Boston will not exercise that option. More likely,
they will seek a trade for the big man this year. But with that big salary, and unless
Ortiz starts hitting, his value is questionable.
There were reports last week that the Red Sox were shopping for a catcher after
allowing 38 of 39 attempted stolen bases. That includes 14 in a three-game series
against the Texas Rangers.
As the week began, the Red Sox had an 8-11 record, six games behind the Tampa
Bay Rays who owned the best record in baseball at 14-5. They also trailed arch-rival
New York by 4-1/2 games in the American League Eastern Division.
Perhaps it's too early in the season to drop the curtain on Ortiz as he started poorly
last year, but ended the season batting.238 with 99 RBIs and 28 home runs. That
type of run production cannot be ignored.
However, his slumping start this year caused Red Sox manager Terry Francona to
pinch-hit for him last week when the game was on the line. Then, with the Rangers
throwingdleft-netdbpi ching thheh ext twosgames hOrtiz wa n't ndteL that it
was the first time it had happened since he came to the Red Sox in 2003.
"It was my first embarrassing moment wearing this uniform. We were looking for a
win and I wasn't swinging the bat very good. The manager sometimes has to make a
decision," he said.
Big Papi came to the Red Sox when the Minnesota Twins let him go after the
2002 season. Former Twins general manager Terry Ryan admitted later that it was a
Ortiz came up through the Twins organization and played here in 1997 for the
Fort Myers Miracle when he advanced all the way to the majors in that single season.
His booming bat was a major factor in the Red Sox World Series titles in 2004
and 2007. From 2003 through last season, Ortiz hit a total of 259 home runs and
knocked in 713 runs.
But those figures are yesterday's news. The Red Sox need help today, and it will
come as no surprise if Big Papi is traded.
Miracle Continue to Struggle
The Fort Myers Miracle started this week with a 5-11 season record after a tough
weekend series at home when they lost two straight to the Palm Beach Cardinals.
The lack of hitting has been the principal problem for the Miracle in this young
After completing a nine-game home stand Monday, the team is on the road this
week, returning to Hammond Stadium next Monday for six games three against

Most amazing is that Herb is nurs-
ing a bad knee that requires a brace and
sometimes leans on a cane for support.
He has qualified for the senior menu for a
few years now, but the win had to be one
of his tastiest.
The veny modified stableford point
tournament of April 20 saw Tom Ware,
Dick Waterhouse, Dick Chocol and Gus
Young roll up 159 for a breezing vic-
tory. Bill Steil, Dave Bugby and Roger
Triftshauser finished second at 151.
Triftshauser will remember the day for his
marvelous net 22 on one nine.M
blessed crows. Half of them have a call
that sounds like laughter. The rest keep
cawing "oh-oh, oh-oh."
Either way it is very disconcerting
when they make those noises in your
backswing. Who elected them golf critics?
If a guy wants an appraisal of his swing
he can ask his wife or the club pro.
But it was all washed away by a lovely
reminder of another spring on the final
round of the season. Hunting a ball that
went close to a pond alarmed a mother
mallard who watched the search and
summoned her "family." Out of tall grass
and weeds on the shoreline suddenly
popped nine fuzzy chicks, quickly forming
a line behind momma and paddling to a
new safe spot. Now the other birds, the
snow variety, are packing and leaving .
In the final full week of a long season
the Beachview Men's Golf league got a
lesson in humility in a two-man shamble
The pairings put Guy Tober and
Herb Goldenberg together for 18 holes.
It was a team that didn't pop out as a
contender, but the two matched up nicely
and wound up with a net 50. They won a
scorecard playoff from Fred Zimmer and
Roger Cogswell, who also tallied a 50.

W whether pur-ne hm
or redecorating an
existing one, most
the age-old ques-
tions of "Where do
I begin?" and "How
do I turn this house into my home?"
Strangely enough, when homeowners
need work done in the home, profession-
als are immediately called in plumbers,
electricians, landscapers and roofers. Why
then do so many still shy from using the
services of a professional interior decora-
tor when making important decorative
decisions and purchases for their home?
Once considered a luxury for only the
ven) wealthy, decorating services are
more of a necessity for today's busy hom-
cowner who simply can't afford to make
Selecting the person you want to
decorate your home is a combination
of compatible personalities and tastes.
During your initial consultation, ask to
review the portfolio of the decorator to
assure yourself that (s)he is capable of
working in diverse styles. This is also the
time to judge whether your personali-
ties are a good fit. You will be working
together for several weeks, if not months.
Working with a professional designer
should be an enjoyable experience. Since
interior decorating projects are highly
personal and collaborative, the final
results are more successful when the lines
of communication are open and ideas are
freely discussed. Be candid with your dec-
orator regarding such important elements
as priorities, timing, budgets and tastes. If
a style, color or item is suggested that you
do not like, feel free to tell him or her.
To ensure that you get off to the right
start with your decorator and also get the
results you are looking for, keep in mind
the following tips:
*Be a keen observer. Consciously
make note of what catches your interest
as you peruse decorating magazines and/
or the internet for interesting rooms and
make-overs. Start a file of colors, patterns
and designs that appeal to you. You may
notice a chandelier, mirror, color combi-
nation or window treatment that you like.
Once you clip and track these for a brief
period, you will be better able to draw a
conclusion as to your personal style; then
communicate these tastes to your interior
decorator at your first opportunity.
*Take an honest inventory of your
existing decor to determine which pieces
you want to keep, Assess your furnish-
ings the way you periodically review your
wardrobe. Plan to keep the pieces you
truly love and put all others on the to-be-
Based upon your initial consultation,
your designer will present you with fabric
samples, sketches and pictures for your
evaluation. Since professionals have
access to a world of options unavailable
in retail stores, be reasonable about ask-
ing to see more and more of everything
available. Remember that the first two or
three designs you are shown will, in the
decorator's opinion, be the best looks for
your home. One of the most important
services a professional offers is sparing
you the confusion of the myriad choices
*Trust your designer's advice and stay
focused on the overall design goal. Once
your design plans are finalized, you will
quickly derail your project if you begin to
question your decisions because you are
heeding the outside opinions of neigh-
bors, friends and relatives. While well
intentioned, these people have no con-
cept of the complete overall design and
will focus on one phase of the project to
*Give your decorator some latitude to
decide for you the small details such as
trims, pillows, accessories and botanicals.
Your project will move forward more
smoothly if he or she doesn't have to
get your approval on every button and
*The last piece of advice is to give
change a chance. The most dramatic
changes usually come from introducing
a strong new color or a different pat-
tern. Don't panic. Just remember that all
change, even for the better,- requires a
period of adjustment. Most homeowners
who have redecorated will be quick to tell
you, "I should have done it sooner!"

HFereComes A New Mitigation Form 1
by Marge Meek
was validating mitigation credits by auditing 500 homes
o see how accurately the mitigation forms were filled
a out. Because over $700 million in credits had been given to
Citizens policy holders due to mitigation forms and because
there were reports of fraud, the subject gained much atten-
*tion and the result is a new Uniform Mitigation Verification
A few insurance companies have already turned on the new
program and, effective last week, they will not accept mitiga-
tion forms nor give credits unless the new form is used. Citizens
is drawing up its rules and will shortly issue the same edict,
although no date has been announced.
Looking at the form, which is now four pages instead of the two pages that we
had before, it is easy to see several items are new, most items are more detailed and
many will have a direct impact on each of us. The permit application date or the date
of installation of your roof needs to be entered. Keep your receipts. The inspector
will need to take at last one photo of each mitigation attribute. Inspection costs will
be going up. If a flat roof shape is greater than 100 square feet or 10 percent of the
entire roof, it must be noted. Many houses, that have a seemingly flat roof across the
top, were created to meet Sanibel's height restrictions and will be designated as flat
unless the inspector can show that the proper slant specifications were followed.
The largest section of new questions concerns opening protection. Instead of noting
large or small missile impact as before, now those categories are further broken down
into four additional categories depending on the weight of the missile. Glazed exterior
openings have five categories. Inspectors surely will need to have education on how to
fill these forms out correctly and will need to know where to get the correct informa-
According to the proponents of this new action, by listing more criteria, points can
be given that more accurately reflect the wind protection rating of a home. Those
points will translate to savings/expenses when purchasing the wind portion of your
insurance package and supposedly will give a more equitable rating system.
Some obvious concerns come up regarding what happens to policies that have
used the current mitigation forms. It appears we are going to have another bumpy
road ahead when it comes to wind insurance. Stay tuned.
