City Plans To Use Booms
To Protect Shores From Oil
by Anne Mitchell
Tphe continuing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and its potential to wash up on local
Beaches weighed heavily Tuesday on the Sanibel City Council and staff.
SHowever, city officials are already making plans to place booms along the
beaches aniddmatn oves to keep the crude oil from damaging Sanibel s environment and

Mand t Kse llRun said, "i rea cni ung ro rko whsour partners, both federal
After the Florida governor s office on Monday extended the state of emergency from
the Panhandle to Sarasota, Ruane and City Manager Judie Zimomra participated in a
conference call with the governor.
So far the city manager has ordered the finance director to prepare cost tracking
forms and has met with representatives of the JN "Ding" Darling National Wildlife
Refuge and Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation to coordinate efforts and docu-
mentation of pre-disaster conditions.
Additionally, the city is coordinating with local partners to document pre-disaster con-
ditions and coordinating identification of environmentally sensitive areas.
At the council meeting, Ruane held up various maps as Zimomra described the
potential movements of the oil slick and how to combat it. Natural Resources Director
Rob Loflin said the gulf loop current is 20 to 80 miles offshore. If oil were to get into the
current it would move quickly down the coast, Loflin said.
He recommended that Sanibel place booms along 30 miles of beaches and about
eight miles of mangroves and openings to the the refuge.
"If you get this (oil) in the mangroves, there is nothing you can do," he added. "We
have snowy plovers nesting on the beaches and it s the start of turtle nesting season.
Ric Base, executive director of the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce, is stress-
ing to the public that "there is little chance of the spill coming this far east and south,
Our beaches are open and clean.
Meanwhile council members were wondering why oil companies drilling in the U.S.
are not required to use cut-off valves to stop the oil from spewing out of the sea bed.

City Plans To
Use Booms
Vice Mayor Mick Denham said such
valves have been mandatory in Norway
since 1993 and are required in most
other countries. He said Sanibel should
lobby elected officials and send a letter to
Senator Bill Nelson, who is encouraging
communication.
"We as a council should begin to lobby
for the ultimate in safeguards," Denham
added.
Councilman Peter Pappas noted,
"Nobody in the world is operating deep


water rigs except here in the Gulf of
Mexico and other parts of America.
Business monitoring is minimal.This hap-
pens everywhere in every segment of our
society and at some point we are going
to have to catch up, whether it's in the
investment banking system or oil rigs."
Mike Valiquette, chairman of PURRE
(People United to Restore our Rivers and
Estuaries) said he has not been able to
get answers from legislators as to why
massive untapped oil fields in North and
South Dakota are not being drilled. "Two
thousand years of oil is underground," he
sa id.O


What is not clear is why we are putting hundreds of thousands of gallons of dis-
persants into the Gulf of Mexico when a series of pipes is gushing 8,000 gallons of
oil an hour 5,000 feet below the surface. The only logical reason I can find is that we
are more comfortable killing the millions of plants and animals that support our life on
these gulf shores as long as we can't see it.
We are more comfortable taking it out on the little guys: the bottom of the food
chain the microscopic organisms that support all the other living things in the Gulf of
Mexico and our planet. We can't see them, so we can poison them at will. So long
as less oil washes up on our shores.
This strategy is similar to spilling a strong radioactive dust in your home. Rather
than removing the radioactivity from your home with a vacuum, all you need to do is
to sweep it under the mug. Now that all the dust is out of sight, you can go about your
activities, not too terribly bothered by the whole little unpleasant incident. Never mind
that the harmful effects of the dust under that mug are just as powerful as ever, emanat-
ing deathly radioactivity. What we can't see won't hurt us right?
If we can make the sight of the oil go away, beneath the calming surface of the sea,
everything will be all right. There will be less oily birds to look at and clean up after.
We can get back to normal. If indeed, we are the stewards of this planet, and our main
concerns are the shoreline, who are the stewards of the ocean? Or does stewardship
really just mean we will protect only what we immediately see and walk along?
Another thing I know. It is clear to me this cataclysmic environmental assault by
an international corporation on our public ocean resources should not be chalked up
as just another case of profit over public interest: An unavoidable and unforeseeable
"accident" necessary to advance our society. We should not let it be so.
What is most clear is that this should be a loud, ringing and final clarion call. It is
past time we sat by and let our leaders allow us to continue down the fossil fuel lane to
environmental hell. It is time for us to break the fossil fuel addiction.
Maybe you may choose to not believe the atmosphere is changing because we
burn fossil fuels. Maybe you choose to pretend that atmospheric change is not rapidly
warming the planet. Maybe you don't know that increased carbon dioxide will change
the acidity of our oceans. All of your choices are valid and fine by me. But, can you
choose to pretend what we have done to the Gulf of Mexico has no real significance?
If so, I wonder if you will be able to do that in two months?
If John F. Kennedy could launch a 10-year campaign to put a man on the moon
with little more technology than a slide rule, we can do the equivalent.
It is time for the leader of our country to tell us we must use alternative energy. It
is time for the leaders of our sanctuary island to tell us that we must use alternative
energy. It is time for us to be unhappy and uneasy and use our regrets to launch our
community and nation forward to a sustainable future.
I don't know how to clean up the mess. I will work as hard as I can to help.
But, I mostly want to make sure we avoid it in the future.
Leaders, it's a great time to lead; we are ready to follow.M

HOW O We Cean Up Ocean Cl UOOil?
submitted by J. Bruce Neill, Ph.D.
What o'tcan we do to minimize the devastating effects of what may well be the
world's largest oil contamination in history? I wish I knew the answer.

But here are a couple of things I do know. Let's stop calling it a "spill." Over
200,000 gallons of oil are pouring into the Gulf of Mexico each day. The size of the
surface oil slick has tripled in the past few days; it is larger than the state of Rhode
Island. Broken pipes are spewing 8,300 gallons of oil in to the gulf each hour 138
gallons per minute. This is hardly a spill.
Our mediation seems to be limited to two strategies. One is to use booms and
adsorbent pads to isolate and soak up the oil on the surface so that it can be safely dis-
posed of The second is to use dispersants to make the oil "go away; this one sounds
great.
The problem with dispersants is that oil and water don't mix. Dispersants break
up the molecules of oil so they no longer float on the water. Instead, the smaller oil
globules are free to be distributed throughout the water column, poisoning creatures
that live in the water and eventually settling on the bottom of the sea where they then
destroy the ocean life on the bottom. They spread the toxicity to all parts of the ocean.
We have quit using dispersants in marinas for tmue oil spills not pipes spewing
8000 gallons per minute, but true spills, where a little gasoline or oil spills out of a
tank when it is being filled. Why have we quit using them in marinas? Because we find
that by allowing the petroleum products to eventually settle to the bottom we create a
much worse, toxic dead zone on the bottom. The "clean-up" causes more harm than
good.
It seems logical to me that we can't use dispersants on oil spills in marinas because
we know their use greatly magnifies the environmental damage caused by small acci-
dental spills. We convert small problems to big ones.

10 ISLAND SUN MAY 7, 2010

Who I ThO 6

COmmI ite

Of The Islands?
by Barbara
Cooley, President
Cornrittee of the
Islands


Inarcn o-versation, a friend
asked, "Who are
the members of the
Committee of the
Islands? Who joins
and why?"
The answer is rooted both in history
and in the present. The Committee of the
Islands is as old as the City of Sanibel. It
emerged from the effort to incorporate
Sanibel as an independent city to protect
it against overdevelopment by the county.
In fact, the two groups that were clamor-
ing for the city to incorporate actually
merged to form the Committee of the
Islands after their incorporation efforts
succeeded.
Before incorporation, there was a
Sanibel Planning Board whose members
were concerned about Lee County plans
to allow for 10 times more housing units
on Sanibel than the number that currently
exists. Under these plans, the total popu-
lation of the island was projected to be
90,000.
At that time (1974), a group called
Sanibel Tomorrow had formed to work
actively for Sanibel's incorporation.


the city of Sanibel was not able to col-
lect taxes and nearly went bankrupt. But
124 people, many of them members of
the Committee of the Islands, gave over
$300,000 to the new city to keep it
afloat.
The new city was swamped with appli-
cations for building permits, mostly for
single-family houses. By April 1976, over
300 permits were issued. The new City
of Sanibel was feeling ovenchelmed.
On April 21, 1976, Col. Edwin Reed,
the chair of the Committee of the Islands,
wrote to Goss to say that the committee
was willing to help the city "make the
islands a better place to live."
To deal with the initial swamp
of requests for building permits, the
Committee of the Islands developed and
promoted the Rate of Growth Ordinance
in 1978. In 1979, Goss addressed the
board members of the committee to
urge them to play a strong role in the
November 1980 election. The committee
did so; in fact, at that time it went so far
as to place an advertisement in the Island
Reporter to endorse candidates for Lee
County property appraiser, tax collector,
county commissioners, school board, and
hospital board.
In the years since, the Committee of
the Islands has continued to develop and
promote political and governmental tools
for protecting Sanibel: the Dark Skies
ordinance, Forever Wild, Pond Apple
Park, and the People's Choice Charter
amendments, to name just a few. The
Organization also continues its govern-
ment "watchdog" role; you can always
find active committee members at impor-


It was led by a woman named Zelda
"Zee" Butler. The group succeeded on
November 5, 1974 when 84 percent of
Sanibel's electorate went to the polls and
63.6 percent of them voted for Sanibel
to incorporate. The next week, on
November 1, Zee resigned from Sanibel
Tomorrow so that she could run for the
first Sanibel City Council.
The new chair of Sanibel Tomorrow,
Bill Kimball, appointed Arthur Hunter as
Sanibel Tomorrow's Special Campaign
chairman, and the group endorsed five
candidates for council. By the end of the
year, the Sanibel Planning Board dis-
solved and pledged $5,000 of its funds
to Sanibel Tomorrow to assist with the
campaign.
By July 21, 1975, Sanibel Tomorrow
and the Sanibel Planning Board no
longer existed; instead, the active partici-
pants of both groups incorporated as the
Committee of the Islands. It functioned
as both an advocate for island preserva-
tion and a political committee, right from
the start. As founding Committee of the
Islands board member Milena Eskew says,
"The businesses had a group, the cham-
ber of commerce, to represent their inter-
ests. The realtors had an organization
to represent their interests. We needed
a group to represent the interests of the
residents of the islands, and that is what
the Committee of the Islands became."
On December 3, 1974, Porter Goss,
Vernon MacKenzie, Zee Butler, Charles
LeBuff, and Francis Bailey were elected
to the first Sanibel City Council.
In its first year, due to lawsuits and
actions of the Lee County Commission,


tant city council and planning commission
meetings. The committee then often
reports on key issues addressed at such
meetings in email alerts to members, on
its Web site, and through articles in local
papers.
Protecting Sanibel from overdevelop-
ment while allowing for development
that honors the city's Vision Statement
and the Sanibel Plan requires vigi-
lance and effort by all islanders. The
Committee of the Islands has sought,
throughout its 35-year history, to provide
an organization through which these
efforts can be focused, to help ensure the
continuity of good local government and
to preserve the island's unique and natu-
ral characteristics. To help achieve these
goals, the committee has in the past and
continues today to seek out and support
candidates and ballot questions that con-
tribute to that effort. For that reason, it is
duly registered as a political committee,
which permits it to publicly provide such
endorsements and support.
So the past and present both answer
the question, "Who is the Committee of
the Islands?" The answer: Residents of
Sanibel who want to keep Sanibel spe-
cial.
The Committee of the Islands meets
regularly and encourages Sanibel resi-
dents to join and become active in its
committees which focus on land use, the
environment, and various aspects of city
government. For more information, go to

Donna's gift for "doing hair" was rec-
ognized early and developed throughout
her life. She truly loved her work! She
began her career as a stylist at J Gordon
Designs in Chicago. Her love of the
water and all things Florida brought her
here in 1994 to open the Harry Ruby
Salon, first on Sanibel and later relocated
to Fort. Myers.
"To know Donna was to love her for
being Donna all Donna." Her kindness,
caring, generosity and playful spirit were
known to many over the years. She was
proud to be a "dog-person," never hav-
ing met a dog she didn't like. In addition,
Donna was a lifelong Cub fan and in true
form, she never gave up hope.
There will be a memorial at
Lighthouse Beach on Sanibel Island on
Saturday, June 5, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. to
celebrate Donna's life, laughter, and love.

firmed that the State of Florida
will receive a $25-million block
grant for the initial state and local
preparation and response costs for the
Deepwater Horizon Response oil spill.
"We will use the block grant from
BP to take proactive measures to help
prevent the devastating impacts of the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill," Gov. Crist
said. "We will continue to be vigilant and
take every possible action to protect our
beaches and the health and well-being of
our residents and visitors.
The guiding principles of the use of
these funds will be:
*Consistent with spirit of Oil Pollution
Act of 1990 to protect the coastal zone
(to include shoreline, near shore, state
waters and subsea zones).
*Coordinated and facilitated for an
effective response to protect the sensitive
marine environments of Florida threat-
ened by the spill.
*In coordination with the efforts of
the responsible party, BP, and the Unified
Command, the funding will provide local
governments the ability to protect areas
not included in the Area Contingency
Plan that they believe to have local signifi-
cance.
To deliver preparation, mitigation,

Zonta Club Is Inspiring
And Helping Island Women


issue end p dun rs in F~odidMyr and
hHoee et sthai eplnn ng exeo is
that members wanted to have a more
direct relationship with island women in
need. The result was the formation of
SWOTI and a partnership with two island
non-profit organizations; CHR and FISH
of Sanibel, and with The Sanibel School.
The club made local grants from its
2009 Peek at the Unique proceeds,
which included $7,500 to CHR, some of
which will help women access the equity
home ownership program; $4,500 to
FISH for food and emergency help for
women; and $5,200 in scholarships for
the rec center s after school program.
When CHR s new Center Place opened
in March, the SWOTI team assembled
and donated welcome gift baskets con-
taining essential household items. Island
businesses are also involved; recently, the
Watson MacRae Gallen} hosted Women s
Stories: Love, Life and Dreams, which
raised funds for SWOTI projects. Special
thanks to Maureen Watson, co-owner of
the Watson MacRae Gallery.
According to team member Nancy
Dreher, more such events are planned
during the coming year. Top priorities
include workshops on legal matters,
personal finances and computer literacy.
Dreher said: "Events such as these make
use of our members' talents and help
expand our club s involvement with the
community closest to home.

"I was so excited," said Kanzius'
widow, Marianne Kanzius, when advised
of the results of the contest. "I think it
shows that people are connecting. There
were so many people behind this to
make this win possible, not just locally but
all over the world. So many people have
been touched by cancer. It shows we can
make this happen."
The money will pay for two new
Kanzius researchers: a molecular biolo-
gist and a physicist. Both will work for
the project's lead researcher, Dr. Steven
Curley, at the MD Anderson Cancer
Center in Houston. Curley already has 14
people working on the radio-wave tech-
nology designed by Erie, Pennsylvania
native and Sanibel Island resident John
Kanzius, who died in 2009. In an inter-
view with the Island Sun last month,
Curley said if they won the money his
plan was to add researchers. "The more
people we have on the project the quick-
er we get to human trials," Curley said.
According to the Kanzius Foundation,
the rest of the Pepsi money about
$70,000 will be used to brand the
Kanzius effort on a global stage. The
foundation said it plans to add text-mes-
saging and a system for mobile-giving.
Kanzius, a radio engineer, developed
a technology that uses nanoparticles and
an external radio-wave generator to tar-


get cancer cells which heat up to a tem-
perature that kill the cells. Unlike current
treatments that cause nausea, weakness,
hair loss and damage to healthy cells, the
Kanzius treatment, according to research-
ers, would have no collateral damage to
healthy cells and no side effects.
The Kanzius fund operates with an
annual budget of about $1 million.

Salon Recycles Hair Clippings
And Pantyhose To Combat Oil Spills
by Anne Mitchell
The Sanibel Beauty Salon's ongoing policy of recycling hair clippings has
Gained a new urgency amid the frantic efforts to clean up the massive oil spill
Sin the Gulf of Mexico.
Owner Mary Anne Banta is appealing for hair stylists, pet groomers and anyone
else who has access to hair clippings and fur to drop them off at the salon at 2330
Palm Ridge Road (across from CVS Drugs), phone 472-1111. Nylon stockings and
pantyhose are also needed. The hair is stuffed into the legs, sausage-style, to create
booms that gather up oil.
The salon saves all its hair clippings for Matter of T rust, a 501(c)3 charity estab-
lished in 1998 following the Exxon-Valdez oil spill in Alaska. Hair stylist Phil McCroly,
a partner with Matter of Trust, invented the hair mat. Thousands of salons nationwide
collect clippings which are used to help decontaminate watennays, prevent soil erosion
and create green jobs.
Banta says her salon is an approved drop-off point for Matter of T rust. She added
that she will try to arrange pick-up for those who can't drop them off.
"Hair is very efficient at collecting oil out of the air off surfaces like your skin and
out of the water, even petroleum oil," says McCroly. "There are over 300,000 hair

ment specific numeric standards based on
sound science. We understand the devel-
opment of numeric nutrient criteria is a
process that will and should evolve over
time and believe the EPA s pending pro-
posal is a good start. Of great importance
is the fact that enforcement is much more
difficult without numeric standards; who
is to say whether someone is adhering to
a narrative standard that merely uses the
word "reasonable," a subjective term that
begs for argument?
Some are complaining about the cost
of complying with the new regulations,
but the cost of complying is relatively
small by comparison to the damage to
our economy and the jobs crisis caused in
great part by the effects of the deteriora-
tion to our water and our beaches. And
the costs are successfully being borne
elsewhere and successfully; for example,
in the Chesapeake Bay area.


Cost-effective solutions exist, and
where they do not, PURRE believes that
these regulations will breed innovation.
Those who deny it and cry, "This will
put us out of business," are simply using
scare tactics to prevent the EPA from
doing what it must to begin the process
that will help save Florida s invaluable
lakes and waterways. What s more, the
cost of cleanup after the damage is done
is incalculably higher than the cost of
prevention. The sooner we act, the less
expensive this vital endeavor will be for
everyone.
For all these reasons, and simply
because it is the right and ethical thing
to do, PURRE asks the EPA, without
delay, to adopt its Proposed Numeric
Nutrient Criteria (Proposed Water Quality
Standards for the State of Florida s Lakes
and Flowing Waters; Federal Register/
Vol. 75, No. 16/Tuesday, Jan. 26,

submitted by Michael J. Valiquette,
Chairman, the PURRE Water coalition
Last week, the PURRE Water
Coalition submitted written com-
ments to the Environmental
Protection Agency in support of its
proposal to assign specific numeric stan-
dards to the amount of nutrient pollu-
tion that is allowed to flow into Florida s
lakes, rivers and other flowing waters
(standards for estuaries will be developed
in the near future).
Florida has 7,700 lakes, 50,000 miles
of rivers and streams, 4,000 square miles
of estuaries, and more than 700 freshwa-
ter springs. So far, over 500 waters are
identified as impaired because of phos-
phorus or nitrogen pollution, representing
approximately 1,000 miles of rivers and
streams, 350,000 acres of lakes, and
900 square miles of estuaries.
Today, only a narrative statement
exists in state regulations to protect our
waters. There is no specific language
setting forth standards and really no way
to enforce such a subjective regulation.
Setting numeric criteria will provide a
target and a way to enforce that target to
restore waters to a healthy condition and
to limit nutrient sources before problems
start so that currently healthy waters do
not become impaired.
Below is the letter PURRE submitted
in support of these proposed new regu-
lations. We recognize that the science
behind the numbers must be sound and
work remains to be done, but the EPA
proposal is a good start.
PURRE s Letter to the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency:
I am submitting these comments on
behalf of the PURRE Water Coalition

degradation of our marine environment
- which inevitably destroys our quality of

proof? Water that years ago was azure
and teeming with marine plant and

covered with algae; we suffer regular fish

of uncommon beauty,
you'll like Bahama senna A.
(Cassia chapmanii). )?
The flowers have five FiL
curved petals and appear :~
in clusters throughout the
year, peaking in autumn
and spring. Bright golden
yellow in color, they are
about one inch across.
Bahama senna's value
is not only ornamental, -
however. It's a nectar
plant for a range of butter- Bahama senna's bright yellow flowers attract several native
flies and the host plant for butterfly species
the cloudless sulphur and orange-barred butter flies.
Those attributes make it all the more important to cultivate this shrub listed as
threatened by the state of Florida.
Plant this a drought- and salt-tolerant butter fly attractor in full sun where it will be
protected from the wind.
This multi-stemmed shrub can grow to about eight feet tall and nearly as wide, so
leave room for it to spread.
The compound leaves have three to five pairs of oval leaflets of one- to two-and
one-half inches long.
This member of the pea family produces a slender brown pod with several seeds
that can be used for propagation. It will also moderately self-seed.
Maintenance involves occasional pruning for neatness and the optional removal of
old flowers.
Bahama senna is also classified as Senna Mexicana var. chapmanii, and has the
common names of Chapman's wild sensitive plant and Chapman's senna.

A One-For-One Start

To Talrpon Fishing
by Capt. Matt Mitchell

of the season. They are definitely here, just not in the
large numbers that will be coming soon. Usually the fish
that show first are on the large size and are either resident fish
St mgain i wn ms a ti e md ihmoving out to meet the migration or some of the first few of
.. ==fishing for rolling tarpon almost impossible. Though not quite
the thrill of throwing at rolling fish, a cut bait on the bottom
gave you better odds.
The tarpon was caught while fishing with clients from
Wisconsin on my first scheduled tarpon fishing trip of the season.
After scouting a few mornings before the trip I had low expectations after seeing only
a few scattered fish while running all over the bay. I knew there were not going to be
many around so my plan was to spend our time sitting on the anchor soaking cut baits
while my anglers floated live baits around the boat rather than running around looking
for pods. I opted to camp out in a large sandhole just west of Demiere Key, one of my
favorite early season tarpon spots.
After cutting up large chunks of mullet, I baited the 12/0 circle hooks and heaved
the rods off the back of the boat placing them in the rod holders. Before I could even
set up the live bait rods, we saw our first free-jumping tarpon. Tarpon fishing can really
be a waiting game. If you are seeing fish in the area it generally pays off to be patient.
The fishing was pretty slow with a few sharks and stingrays caught to pass the time.
We threw live pinfish out on floats letting them drift. Over the next few hours we had
several shark cut-offs on the the cut bait rods and saw a few more tarpon all roughly a
hundred yards or so behind the boat. I decided to pick up the anchor and slide over to
where I had seen a few fish roll.
Within 15 minutes of re-anchoring the boat we had a tarpon come up and miss a
live bait under a float about 30 feet behind us. The big five- to six-foot-long silver flash
followed by a giant hole in the water was like someone had dropped a bathtub in from
20 feet up. It was a sure sign that we were hopefully in a for few fish.
After another hour and only a few more sighted fish, I started to watch the clock
knowing we were almost out of time. As usual with tarpon fishing, just when you don't
think it's going happen a rod doubles over and before you can even pull it from the
rod holder the tarpon is up in the air jumping, leaving no question of what you have
hooked up.
It was Todd Clanin's turn on the cut bait rod. After a few hours of slow boredom
and just waiting, now it was on "the real deal." We finally got that one hard-earned
bite. It was followed by a few minutes of chaos as we frantically cleared lines, dropped
the anchor buoy, put the rods away and gave chase to the angry tarpon.
Chasing the tarpon down we gained most of the line back on the big spinning real
before I could catch a breath. It had been a while since I had done this drill but it's
something you never forget. At one point during the fight the tarpon did the dreaded
triple jump which makes it all but impossible to bow and lift the rod back up before the
fish jumped again but Clanin managed to keep it hooked up. After a 35-minute fight
the tarpon came boatside where it rolled over on its side. I grabbed it by the lower
jaw and quickly removed the circle hook. The hook was perfectly placed right in the

unhooked.
We snapped some pictures as I started to revive the big fish. Moving the boat
slowly fonvard on the trolling motor forces water through the tarpon's mouth and out
the gills. The 100-pound plus tarpon quickly revived and kicked hard, swimming off
unharmed to fight another day.
Everyone on board was all smiles as we idled back to the anchor buoy before calling
it a day. With so few tarpon around I was as thrilled as my clients for pulling it off and
going one for one to start my tarpon season.

"The Earth Charter is... calling humanity to join forces and act collectively to pro-
tect our planet, which is definitely in danger The Earth Charter is a global move-
ment... we should make it grow to guarantee that the world will continue to be a
hospitable home, a safe place for all people and all for ms of life with which we
share (Earth)."
The primary focus of the event was the tenth anniversary celebration of the Earth
Charter, an international declaration of shared ethical principles for creating a just, sus-
tainable, and peaceful future.
Corcoran, who directs FGCU's Center for Environmental and Sustainability
Education, spoke at an Earth Charter conference at the University of Guanajuato.
According to Corcoran, "Universities must take a much stronger leadership role _
indeed, they have an ethical responsibility to do so. I believe that mainstreaming sus-
tainability is an urgent matter."

Shore Fishing:
Don't Harm The Fish
by Capt. Matt Mitchell






ending a big fish from the
Dragging a fish up onto the
sand if you're going to release it is
not an option as it usually damages
or kills the fish.
*Hold the fish in the water while
you unhook it if you're going to
release it.
*The less you can touch a fish
before release the better for the fish.
*If you want a picture with the
fish, support it as you lift it out of the
water and do it quickly.
*Before releasing, revive the fish
while holding it in the water; moving
it slowly back are forth so water goes
over its gills. The fish will let you
know when it's ready to swim off.
*Florida just recently changed
the regulations on fishing from shore.
Florida residents as well as out of
state visitors need a fishing license to
fish from shore.

society in the 21st century.
This year marks the 10th
anniversary of its launching
at the Peace Palace in The
Hague, Netherlands.
An Earth Charter meal
is one in which all elements
are carefully chosen to reflect
these principles, including
locally-grown and organic
items, especially those that
are produced in a sustainable
manner. Chip Hoffman's culi- '
naly skills were evident in the
delicious meal, which included
curry carrot soup, mixed fresh
vegetable salad, Thai eggplant
with coconut peanut butter Pine Island crab cake, shrimp, grit triangle and green
sauce and brown rice; or Pine beans
Island crab cake and shrimp
with grit triangle and green beans; Key lime mousse with shaved white chocolate,
organic wines and fresh-squeezed juice.
WGCU-TV's Curious Kids Ambassador Rosie Emery provided musical entertain-
ment, and Dr. Bill Hammond made a brief presentation on the history and future
hopes of the Calusa Nature Center. Sanibel School teacher Tylor Stewart encouraged
everyone present to join in reading Earth Charter principles from artfully prepared
cards. Proceeds were enhanced by sales of Hoffman s photographs and Charles
Sobczak s new book Living Sanibel.
ECOSanibel is a non-profit, non-partisan, island-based educational or ganization
dedicated to providing opportunities for studying, advocating, and upholding those
principles of the Earth Charter that are appropriate for Sanibel. Members are those
who care not only about the sanctuary nature of Sanibel Island but also about the well-
being of the entire human family, now and in the future, and the lar ger living world.

From lef: Nature center Executive Director Jennifer
Cleary accepts check from Donna Roberts


Earth Charter of Sanibel (ECOSanibel) board members Donna Roberts and
Chip Hoffman recently hosted an event at Roberts' home in Fort Myers to
beefit the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium in Fort Myers. A capacity
crowd of 17 guests attended the event, which was billed as an Earth Charter meal.
The outcome was a check for $1,260 which Roberts later presented to Nature
Center executive director Jennifer Cleary.
Roberts explained: "In 2003, our group held a successful Earth Charter summit at
the Nature Center, and due to our shared goals, we have had a positive relationship
during the years since. When I read last fall that the center was having financial dif-
ficulties, we conceived the idea of hosting an Earth Charter educational program that
would raise funds to help them.

demand with an expanded offering. Campers will create a 3-D paper mache
version of their mollusk cartoon character. During week two, children will dis-
cover the interdependent relationships of the many creatures in the ocean biome.

eaters while others filter nutrients through the water or dine on plant life. The third
camp was added after an enthusiastic educator and philatelist, Don Pattison, visited
to explore the museum s interest in the subject of shell stamps and their value as
teaching tools. Shells will be linked with lessons in world geography and math. The
children will design their own stamps which will be displayed in the museum lobby.

or coffee was due by the end of the day
but I wasn t stressed. I knew exactly what
I wanted to write.
Today it would be about mothers pass-
ing things on to their daughters. Recipes,
rituals, lullabies, stories, a crooked nose,
voluptuous hips or no hips, ladylike man-
ners or no manners, a dainty way of
walking or a sporty way of walking, a crit-
ical way of viewing others and the world
or a loving way But what can they pass
down that might truly say who they were
or where they had been or how they had
felt or what they loved or experienced
during their escapade called life?
I thought about my mama teaching
me the word of God. I still remember the
scripture verses she had me memorize
and I'm glad I can grab onto those when
I need something to cling to. And my
grandmother instilled in me the notion of
giving thanks to the Lord, even in times
of despair. I also believe blessings upon
children are a good thing to give. I ve told
each of my children I believe in them and
know they will accomplish great things
in life. This sort of gift makes its way
through the generations.
But there is an age a woman reaches
in which she wonders about her own
mother, and longs for something that
might put an intimate character descrip-
tion on her, on what she loved and felt
passionate about in life. I recall the day
we stepped foot on Sanibel for the first
time. "It's paradise," my mother had said.
And in her eyes, I did indeed see a spar-
kling I had never seen in her before. So
why can' ta mother hand down a special
place to her children? Sanibel is the place
my mother and grandmother both loved,

Florida Rep Closes Season

With Zany Musical Comedy
F lorida Repertoly Theatre's final offering of its 12th season is a zany musical comedy
Sof epic proportions, The Big Bang.
SOpening May 7, the show is an hysterical romp that follows two wannabe pro-
ducers as they retell the history of mankind as the most lavish and expensive Broadway
musical ever written.
Written by Boyd Graham and Jed Feuer, The Big Bang~ is a deliriously funny musical
that the Newu York Daily Newus called "Inspired Nonsense!" It unfolds in the elegant Park
Avenue apartment of Dr. Sid and Sylvia Lipbalm, a proctologist and his wife, as Jed
and Boyd pitch a musical they have written, The Big Bang, to a houseful of prospec-
tive investors. With a budget of $83.5 million and a cast 318, it is the most expensive
and most lavish musical ever conceived, and over the course of the evening, Jed and
Boyd pull out all the stops as Florida Rep audiences sit in as the potential backers. The
dynamic duo hits all the historical highlights, from building the pyramids to Napoleon's
France and the antebellum South. Jed and Boyd give investors a taste of the impending
extravaganza and play all the parts along the way from Adam and Eve to Caeser and


A MII 'r i gL.gg lilith'~i"U; a, MFM

his Soothsayer, Mrs. Ghandi, Attila the Hun, Columbus and Isabella, Pocahontas and
Minihaha, Tokyo Rose and Shanghai Lil, Eva Braun and more keeping audiences in
stitches as they turn the Lipbalm apartment and history upside down.
The production stars Jason Parrish and Galy Marachek as Jed and Boyd. Parrish is
now in his fifth season with Florida Rep, serving as associate director and was seen most
recently in this season's Relatively Speaking and The Santaland Diaries. Out of New
York, Marachek is no stranger to The Big Bang, having appeared in the show three
times before. A four-time Carbonell Award-winner (the South Florida Tony), Marachek
has appeared extensively around the country and in Florida, chiefly with Actor's
Playhouse in Miami.
Joining Parrish and Marachek for the historical mayhem is musical director and
onstage pianist, Edward Reichert. A professor with the University of Souther n Maine,
Reichert has worked extensively with Florida Rep (Company; I Love You, You're
Perfect...), in Southwest Florida and spent four years working with the Zonta Club on
Sanibel and Captiva.
Producing Artistic Director Robert Cacioppo directs the production and is joined by
choreographer, Amy Marie McClealy, resident choreographer with the Broadway Palm
The Big Bang plays May 7-23, with discounted previews May 4 at 8 p.m,, May 5
at 2 p.m. and May 6 at 8 p.m. Per formances are Tuesday through Saturday at 8 p.m.,
with 2 p.m. matinees on Wednesday, Sunday and selected Saturdays with a special twi-

meant as a turning point in the Civil
War but remembered instead as one
of its greatest failures. Most accounts

a broader perspective. The Crater
was intended to draw on the Union's
strengths, like the master} of indus-
trial technology, and the physical
energies liberated by black emancipa-
tion. A regiment of coal miners dug a
500-foot tunnel under a Confederate
strong point and packed it with four
tons of blasting powder. A division of No Quadfer: The Battle of the Crater 1864
African-Americans was to exploit the
blast to open the way to the Confederate capital, Richmond. The Civil War might have
ended by Christmas. Instead, Slotkin describes a fiasco. Jealousy, intransigence, incom-
petence, and even cowardice among Union generals resulted in a combination massa-
cre and race riot, as white Union and Confederate troops turned on the blacks.#

CRow case Of The Week:

C'attle Eg ret
by Brian Johnson
On March 6
Kelli Haick
Oand her
daughter, Ava, 2,
were driving home
on Six-Mile Cypress
Parkway after a day
of errands in Fort
Myers when she
saw a cattle egret
moving erratically on the side of the
road.
An animal lover, she decided to make
a U-turn at the next opportunity and
circle around to see if the bird needed
help. When she located him again, she
pulled off onto the grass and took a look.
She could tell by the wing droop and the
blood that she had guessed correctly.
Kelli asked Ava if it would be okay to
take her "blankie" for the bird rescue.
Ava did not think twice about making this
sacrifice, and happily handed her blanket
to her mother. "Birdie! birdie!" she kept
saying.Kelli scooped up the bird, and


took him to the Humane Society, where
she was directed to the CROW drop-off
point at South Trail Vet Clinic on Route
41.
At CROW, the staff found that the cat-
tle egret suffered from an open mid-shaft
fracture of two bones, the radius and
ulna, in his right wing. There was blood
on the creature's beak and feathers, mild
swelling, and bruising.
Staff cleaned and stabilized the wound
and started him on antibiotics,Y(unnan
Baiyao (to decrease bleeding) and pain
medication.
On Day 2 CROW Staff Veterinarian
Dr. PJ Deitschel took a look at the injury
and decided surgery was the only realistic
option.
Dr. PJ placed a pin in the ulna and
sutured the incision site. The radius was
too small for a pin, but was fixed with
sutures in parallel alignment with the
ulna. The bird woke up quickly from sur -
gery and even ate a meal that night.
Staff continued his Fortaz (a broad-
spectrum antibiotic) and added anti-
inflammatories, calcium, and vitamins B
and C. They also began the herbs Body
Sore and Jie Gu San to move stagnant
Qi and aid in bone healing.


Dr. Amber McNamara
changed the wrap two days
later to make sure there was
no infection at the wound -.
site or problems with the pin.
Everything looked good.
After one week staff
removed much of the wing
wrap and began passive range
of motion exercises to keep
the tendons supple. By Day 14
they removed what remained
of the wrap while continuing
physical therapy.
On Day 17 there was
enough of a callus at the site to
remove the pin. "Fantastic no
problem," said Dr. PJ.
Staff transferred the cattle
egret to an outdoor cage on
Day 20, and a few days later to
the Shorebird Cage, where he
mixed with other birds.
"By April 5 he was extreme-
ly well-flighted," said Dr. PJ.
"This was a textbook case. No
glitches, no setbacks. I kept
saying to the students follow-
ing this case: 'It doesn't always
go this well!' This bird was a
great patient, and progressed
through treatment at a flawless
tempo." CROW released him 5g
that day.

Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Ctl
Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife

Twins' Last Two Top Draft Picks

Have Spectacular Season Starts
by Ed Frank
Two~ highly-touted first-round draft picks of the Minnesota
Twins are probably on a two-way street one going and
one coming right here with the Fort Myers Miracle
baseball team.
And as we've written so many times, the stars of tomorrow
play here today a fact proven when you look at the T wins
Major League roster.
a a Let's first discuss last year's first-round pick, Kyle Gibson.
A six-foot, five-inch hard-throwing right hander out of the
University of Missouri, he already has gained headlines when last
week he took a per fect game into the sixth inning before giving

up a controversial infield single that was wiped out by a double

the mini o f u 7 db nsa t t ssma dehitrc plet gme 2-0
Miracle shutout over the Jupiter Hammerheads.
Gibson began this week with a 2-1 record and a sparkling
1.76 ERA, which placed him among the top three pitchers in
the Florida State League.
He was scheduled to start again Tuesday of this week when
he faced the Hammerheads once more only this time at home at
Hammond Stadium.
The Twins no doubt have Gibson on a fast track to the big
leagues as evidenced by starting his professional career here with Kyle Gibson
the High A Miracle of the tough Florida State League. Nor mally
a rookie would start at a rookie-level league.
The big 20-year-old hurler was grabbed by the T wins as the
22nd pick of the first round when he had expected to be a top-
10 pick. However, a stress fracture in his forear m scared off
other teams.
While recovering from the injury, the T wins sent him to the
instructional league where he dazzled the coaches, ear ning him a
spot with the High A Miracle.
After last week's near per fect game, Miracle Manager Jake
Mauer said, "You can definitely see why he was a first-round pick.
He's pretty smart and has a pretty good idea what he's doing out
there.
But it wasn't on the baseball field where Gibson had his best Aaron Hicks
outing. A week before he shot a career -best two-over-par 74 at
Heritage Palms Country Club in Fort Myers.
He rises early most days when the Miracle are home to get in a round of golf
before going to the stadium.
Should Gibson continue his blazing start, look for the T wins to promote the young-
ster to Double A New Britain at mid-season. Y es, his days here are probably limited
so you better get out to Hammond Stadium soon if you want to see this future major
esAu rn Hicks, ranked by Baseball America as one of the 10 best Major League
prospects, was the first-round draft choice of the T wins in 2008 (14th overall pick).
Drafted directly out of high school, the gifted outfielder also is a scratch golfer who
considered a career in professional golf.
His first season of professional baseball last year was divided between the rookie
Gulf Coast Twins and the Low A Beloit Snappers where combined he recorded a .278
batting average.
Hicks, just 20, was sent back to Beloit this year to gain further experience. He
started the 2010 season poorly, going just 2 for 34 (.059).
But suddenly his bat became alive as he averaged an astounding .514 (18 for 35)
over a 10-game stretch to raise his season average to .316. His scorching bat is a
major factor why Beloit started the week
with a 15-9 record and a first-place hold on
l ab utYO the Western Division of the Midwest League.
a out 0 U .While the revolving door of minor league

romances that are closely held to the
heart but relinquished through the years,
"Soon I became like any other woman...
as she "...wonders how his life tur ned
out."
The section on quotes from Lemmon s
book Sand in my Eyes reveals the stress
of motherhood, "A woman ovenchelmed
for too long becomes miserable" is a
wonderful sentence, particularly when
followed by an amusing sub-section, The
House Is Falling Dowun (Motherhood &
Feeling Overwuhelmed). And the truisms
continue, "There is nothing a mother
longs to hear more than that her grown
daughter is living a life she loves." And
I had a good chuckle over the often
debated philosophical question, "Who
would you save first in time of peril?" She
writes, "T'd throw myself into the mouth
of a shark to save my children. I don t
know whether I would do that for my
husband, or not." Lemmon is at her most
introspective in this section; she ponders
loneliness, regret and growing older
(although her jacket photo shows a lovely
young woman in the prime of life).
The final section recalls her book,
Sanibel Scribbles; she ponders, "There's
so much I once wanted to do in life, and
now I just want to savor life." And later
"There is no place I would rather be at
this given time!" The reader wants to say
"Bravo, Christine" for your literary jour-
ney and sharing it and your philosophy
with devoted readers.

but I was wrong; Lemmon has compiled
thoughts, truisms and reflections in this
slim volume which serve as important
nudges toward self acceptance.
Capturing the gist of her collected
thoughts in "Author's Note," she writes,
"There are those times when a woman
fears she is on the brink of extinction..."
and "Even when in the midst of chaos...
I have learned how to tap into my inner-
most depths" and this is what she has to
impart to us.
Lemmon is reassuring in her passages
from Portion of the Sea "There are cer-

lose her mind... It's okay for women to
do that..." She understands insecurities
and self doubts of women, "Dig, dig

The trunk show is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day and besides individual beads
and charms, there are pre-made starter bracelets from $150 and fully loaded ones
from $350.
This is no ordinary bookstore. There are books of course books galore but styl-
ish owner Hollie Schmid loves to add other items that take her fancy. She recently
brought in a collection of SwitchFlops, sandals with interchangeable thongs. The
sandals include flats, wedges and kitten heels. Just think of the possibilities when you
go on a trip. There s no need to lug around many pairs of shoes to match all your dif-
ferent outfits just toss in some extra straps. Sandals run $35 to $55 and additional
straps start at $12.

safety awareness and action. May is a
great time to ensure that you and your
loved ones are plugged into safety. LCEC
recommends that you devote time this
month to check your home for indoor
electrical safety hazards:
*Outlets and Plugs Check for
outlets that have loose-fitting plugs, which
can overheat and lead to fire. Never
remove the ground pin to make a three-
prong plug fit a two-conductor outlet, this
could lead to an electrical shock. Never
force a plug into an outlet if it doesn t fit.
*Power Cords and Extension
Cords Make sure all power cords
and extension cords are not frayed or
cracked. Do not place cords in high traffic
areas or under carpets, rugs or furniture.
Extension cords should only be used on
a temporary basis, not as permanent
household wiring.

Chairs, too, have vastly improved in
terms of aesthetics as well as comfort.
This is one place you can really put a per -
sonal stamp on your home office. Once
you've determined you style preference,
you next need to give careful consider-
ation to the ergonomics. If you spend a
majority of your time working at a com-
puter, you may want to opt for a chair
with separate adjustments for lumbar
and lower back support, arm width and
height, seat back angle and seat height.
Another important consideration is
storage. Books, files, mail, magazines,
and other papenvork are all essential to
any full-fledged office and as we all know,
every piece of paper deserves its own
home. Take stock of how many linear
feet of open and closed storage you need
right now, then multiply that figure by
25-50 percent to allow for future growth,
Once you've come to a comfortable con-
clusion, consider various storage options
- everything from conventional steel files
to traditional wood cabinetry.
And finally, don't forget those furnish-
ings that will put the "home" in home
office. Decorative lighting, an ottoman for
put-your-feet-up comfort, even a home
entertainment unit can add up to an
office ready for any job. And those finish-
ing touches custom window treatments,
area rugs, artwork and collectibles will
all help to say, "This is my space."
Given the right decorative approach,
you'll find it hard to leave work when 5
o'clock rolls around!

Home Office
by Marcia Feeney
one are the
days when
Gyou only
had the choice of a
4 desk and chair for
C your home office.
Today's home
sJoffice furnishings
Options are all but
endless. So, first
things first. As
with any decorat-
ing project, you
first need to deter mine what you want
to accomplish in your new home office,
and then match those needs with the
right furnishings.
While many people purchase a
conventional desk, more and more are
requiring extra space. If you fall into this
categon), you might consider a worksta-
tion. An L-shaped configuration should
provides approximately twice the work
space of a traditional desk. Plus, the stor -
age options are virtually endless cub-
byholes, drawers and cabinets are all
designed to store office essentials.
Another popular workstation option is
the office armoire: two tall doors open to
reveal a pull out work sur face and plenty
of storage space. Available in a multitude
of design styles and fur niture finishes,
these popular pieces can easily fit into
any decor.

Portraits In Print

A Ie At The Ark
by Jane Vos Hogg

ost Sanibelians know Noah's Ark. It's wonderfully
one, or just somewhere to go, it's a nice place to start.
Buried in the bustle is always the possibility of a back story.
That's how this began.
: ~Dianne Leonardi, a long-time volunteer, was on the cash
Register. It was chilly that day.... call it a ring-slipping-off-day...
and that's just what happened to her. She remembered packing
up someone's purchase; four table mats with matching napkins,
and the woman mentioned she was heading north. "These will
go really well with my daughter's dishes." Since the items would
be traveling they had been packed in a paper bag rather than the usual plastic. (That's
another charming Ark characteristic... chit chat back and forth between the wanderers,
the workers, the people on line... details overheard and often remembered.)
Later Dianne looked down at her hand and realized her ring, her wedding ring,
had disappeared. Too late, she realized it must have slipped into the bag she'd packed
minutes ago. The volunteers were all abuzz... the word went out... there was even a
HELP!! WEDDING BAND LOST notice taped on the shop's front door asking anyone
who heard of someone finding a ring to please contact the Ark.
Always on the hunt for a tale to tell, when I saw that sign I mentioned my interest
to Betty Carr, the shop's current chairperson. "If it ever turns up let me know," I told
her. "It just might make a good story.
A week later at the Ark Betty greeted me holding a page out of the local paper.
Called Island Faces it had a dozen or so pictures...one coincidentally happened to be
me with my husband... but Betty was pointing to another face, this one down below.
"I'm sure of it. She was with the woman who bought the table mats. Do you think you
could find her?" "Not immediately," I explained, because Rose Minar, the woman in
question, had, like many of the snowbirds, flown north. "She's a friend of mine. Not
to worry." I promised to e-mail her in a few days because by then she'd be back in
Wisconsin.
This must have circled through the Ark's volunteer community because the next day
Dianne telephoned me. (She didn't know me, just knew my name, found me in the
phone book.) But she added yet another batch of ingredients to to the mix.
First... the ring. It wasn't her original wedding ring because that had grown too
small years ago. The one she wore now had belonged to her husband's mother who,



ISLAND PHARMACY

The ONL Y Independently owned Pha~rmaccy on Sanibel


when she died in 1984, had passed it on to Dianne. Clearly, it had lots of special
meaning... so much so that last November, when the Leonardi's renewed their wed-
ding vows for their 50th anniversary, they had asked their minister to bless the ring.
"Oh, you must feel awful," was my immediate response. "Not really. I know it will all
work out. God knows and God shows," she assured me.
And guess what? She may have been right! (Understand, by now I'd written this
article and, just to be sure it was correct, I e-mailed it to Rose.) Hours later I got mail
from her complete with her version. So here we have the facts.
"My friend found the ring in the bottom of the brown bag. She mentioned it in
passing days later while she was closing up her place for the season. The next week I
saw the posting of the lost ring on the Ark door not really putting it together until I
was at the check-out and saw a duplicate taped to the cash register. A light bulb went
off in my brain and I chatted with the cashier about my friend who had recently found
a ring in a bag perhaps it was that one. I asked for the phone number of the woman
who lost it and told her I would call my friend, now home in Michigan." She did.
Friend called Dianne. They talked. "It was indeed the lost ring. End of story, really."
Still fact-checking, I stopped by the Ark to meet Dianne. She showed me the enve-
lope the mailed ring had come in which tied it all together in one more of my small-
world packages. The return address was from Mary Mechtenberg, one more of my
neighbors/friends.
Yesterday, I heard from Dianne. She was sending both women thank you notes
along with a special bit of appreciation. What else? Gift certificates to Noah's Ark. I
assured her that two smiling shoppers will be returning to Sanibel next fall as they do
every year.#
From page 32

Long Story Short
and now I am here, so yes, a mother can most certainly pass a place on to her chil-
dren. Of course there are geologists out there warning that sea islands shouldn't be
considered permanent and immutable objects, but natural phenomena such as storms
and tides and currents and evolution are too much for me to worry about. Tea sets
break, too, but we still pass those on.
Hmmm maybe this particular column should finish in an open-ended manner in
the form of a question, for each mother has her own wonderful ideas of the things she
wants to pass on. So I will ask now:
What meaningful, eternal gift can a mother pass on to her children, grandchildren,
great grandchildren and so on?

Name: Tammy
Breed: shepherd mix
Sex: female
Age: four months
Color: brown
Comments: I was dumped off on the side of the
road and a kind Animal Control Officer brought me
to the shelter. Being dumped was very scaly so I've
been in a foster home until now so I could gain some
confidence. Now I am back at the shelter and ready
for my permanent home. In my foster home I lear ned
my house manners and how to use a doggy door I still
may want to hide sometimes because I'm shy but will
warm up quickly to you. I'm going to be a lar ge dog


and I am growing
fast. I had lots of
dog company in
my foster home
and would love to
be someone's lov-
ing companion. So
what do you think?
Are we a match? .
