Keys within 10 days. Some oceanogra-
phers predict that traces of oil could reach
Key West as early as Sunday, May 23.
The Gulf of Mexico basically has a sin-
gle entrance and a single exit. Most salt-
water enters the gulf from the Caribbean
Sea through a narrow passage between
the Yucatan Peninsula and Cuba called
the Yucatan Channel or the Straits of
Yucatan. The water that flows through this
passage is called the Yucatan Current.
Much of the Yucatan Current roughly
follows the shoreline of the Yucatan
Peninsula north and west and continues to
the western gulf; the eastern part of the
Yucatan Current flows along the north-
ern edge of Cuba; it is called the Florida
Current.
A third, central portion of the Yucatan
Current flows northward, then to the
east, eventually turning south towards the
Florida Keys. This is the now famous Gulf
Loop Current.


The loop current and the Florida
Current combine and flow between the
southern tip of Florida and Cuba as the
Gulf Stream. It is joined and pushed
along by an Atlantic current (the Antilles
Current) to flow northward along the east-
ern seaboard of North America, eventually
flowing to Europe.
By now, you've probably realized that
ocean currents are very complex. Oceans
are better thought of as a series of fairly
discrete rivers flowing in their own direc-
tions stacked on one another between
the surface and the ocean floor. To make
things more complicated, not only do cur-
rents flow differently at different depths,
they vary horizontally over space as well.
So we have a series of adjacent rivers
flowing in separate directions, stacked
on even more rivers flowing in their own
directions.


The loop current is a surface current,
typically 100 to 200 miles offshore at the
latitude of Lee County, although prevailing
weather patterns can cause it to meander
significantly. However, it is rarely less than
100 miles from our shores, so it is likely
to bypass Lee County and deposit oil in
the Tortugas, the Marquesas and the Keys.
You may be thinking, whew, we lucked
out but not so fast.
BP is releasing oil from a pipe 5,000
feet below the surface of the ocean. It
is not simply rising to the surface where
we can scoop it up. Remember all those
stacked currents? In all likelihood, a sig-
nificant amount of oil is being transported
below the surface on deeper currents in
other directions. It is likely that oil car-
ried by deeper currents will end up in Lee
County over the coming weeks or months.

Mired in the morass of the gulf
oil blowout is the Gulf Loop
Current. Over the course of the
ongoing disaster in our backyard, you've
probably heard reports that oil could
enter the loop current and make its
way to the Florida Keys, where it could
impact fragile mangrove, seagrass, and
coral reef ecosystems.
After hearing that something "could" or
"might" happen, it is easy to assume that
it probably won't, but on Tuesday, May
19 officials at the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration announced
that surface oil has entered the loop cur-
rent and will likely arrive in the Florida

ISLAND SUN MAY 21, 2010 9
Actually, if the city attempted to pre-
vent conversion to residential use, resort
owners might then have legal claims
against the city under the Bert Harris
Private Property Rights Protection Act.
That's the state law which subjects local
governments to claims for damages for
"inordinately" burdening an existing use
of real property.
"Existing use" is defined to include
"reasonably foreseeable" as well cur-
rent uses. Since owners of properties in
the Resort Housing District are not now
restricted from converting to residential
use, imposing such a restriction might
be considered grounds for damages in a
lawsuit.
Referendum not required
There is one final point. Some hold
that the city charter would require a
referendum to permit non-conforming
structures to be replaced at their current
density. But a referendum is not required
for reasons of density alone. Council is
specifically granted that authority under
City Charter Section 3.10.2.
Your input on this subject is impor-
tant to the city. There is ample time for
you to become informed and make your
feelings known to those in city govern-
ment. There is an opportunity for public
comment before important decisions are
made at both city council and the plan-
ning commission. Meeting times are post-
ed on the Internet and in the newspapers
usually Tuesdays at 9 a.m.
The Committee of the Islands also
invites your comments and ideas on this
important subject. You can email us at
coti@cot.org and/or check our Web site
at cott~org.M


days or fewer) are permitted.
We think this approach makes sense.
It should help ensure that council and the
commission are "on the same page" and
will increase the likelihood that council
will find the commission's eventual pro-
posals acceptable. Council's guidance
document covers six elements:
Density
Lot coverage and impermeable sur-
faces
Setbacks
Height limits
Green technologies
Relocation of the footprints of exist-
ing structures in redevelopment.
Determining density
Our comments today will focus on
the element of density, which, in this
context, means the number of dwelling
units that may be built on a given parcel
of land. Under the Sanibel Plan, that is
determined on a parcel-by-parcel basis,
based on the ecological zone in which the
parcel is located (with more density being
permitted in zones that are less ecologi-
cally sensitive).
Many of the structures in the Resort
Housing District were built before the
adoption of the Sanibel Plan and contain
more units than would now be permit-
ted for new construction. Thus they are
classified as non-conforming. City council
has determined that it is in the interest of
residents and businesses to:
Maintain a block of daily and weekly
short-term rental units on Sanibel
Encourage property owners/inves-
tors to maintain their hotel/motel use.
Sanibel's economy is tourist driven,
and short-term rentals are a vital con-
tributor to that economy. As much as
we might like to see fewer cars on the


road and fewer beachfront structures, we
believe it is reasonable today to focus on
limiting further density increases, rather
than attempting to turn back the clock
by reducing density. This is especially the
case when to do so would come at the
price of substantially burdening the eco-
nomic health of our community.
Council has devised an approach,
which we think has merit, regarding the
redevelopment of hotels, motels and
resort condominiums that exceed today's
density limits. It would permit these struc-
tures to be redeveloped at their current
density with the following restrictions:
Redevelopment could not exceed
existing square-footage of habitable area,
so that a small motel, for example, could
not be replaced by a much larger one.
Short-term occupancy (rentals for
28 days or less) would have to be main-
tained. Conversion to other forms of
occupancy, such as residential, while
permissible, would have to be at today's
density limits.
Short-term rentals incentivized
This approach incentivizes the owners
of such structures to keep their short-term
rental status by allowing them to rede-
velop without losing their present density;
they would lose that density protection if
they converted the structures to residenc-
es that permitted only long-term rentals,
or no rentals at all.
Even given such incentives, it's difficult
to predict how many short-term rental
units would be retained if this plan were
adopted. But we think council made the
right choice. No one would benefit if
Sanibel's resort structures became sub-
standard. And the outright prohibition of
conversion to traditional residential use
would not appear to be a realistic option.

What Density

Allowed In Resort

Redevelopment?
by Larry Schopp,
... Committee of
the Islands board
member

reported that
1 hat wek city was
addressing the
problem of aging
resort structures
~- condominiums,
hotels, and motels
that would require major upgrading or
replacement, without which they would
face issues of safety, functionality, or
gradual deterioration.
We had pointed out that the problem
with redeveloping or replacing these
structures is that many of them are non-
conforming. They were legally built and
entitled to continue until they are eventu-
ally removed, but may not be redeveloped
at their current density. So owners may
be reluctant to redevelop them if they
face reduced density.
To address this problem, city council
recently sent a guidance document to the
planning commission. This document
sets the parameters for the commission's
deliberations on redevelopment in the
Resort Housing District, the only district
on Sanibel where short-term rentals (28

Haiti Mission trip


FTom May 25 to June 1 Sanibel Community Church sent seven men to St.
Marc, Haiti. The trip was a success on many different levels. With the inten-
tion of offering aid through construction, distributing food, furthering a water
project, relationship building and sharing faith, each expectation was far exceeded.
SCC partnered with Missionary Enterprise Inc. and Many Austin School in St. Marc
in what may be the beginning of a long-term relationship. The goal is to help the peo-
ple of Haiti, continue to learn from them and offer assistance that will lead to helping
them use their own gifts, talents and resources.

Junior Achievement of Southwest
Florida is hosting a one-week program
the third week of June at Florida Gulf
Coast University (FGCU) campus called
JA s CEO Academy-Growing Florida s
Future Business Leaders, presented
in conjunction with Lutgert College of
Business at FGCU. Thirty high school
juniors and seniors from the tri-county
area of Lee, Charlotte, and Collier coun-
ties will be selected to attend. In project
teams, the students will create business
plans and marketing packages for case
studies of specialized international corpo-
rations. Visit www.JASWFL.org for more
information about this program.


JA asks questions like: What are you
going to be when you grow up? What
skills will you need to get a job? Will you
need a college education? Where will you
live? What are you going to drive? How
much will all of this cost? These questions
provoke discussion, thinking and planning
for the future. Classes are taught by a
core of truly dedicated volunteers.
JA has 245,000 classroom volunteers
nationwide who come from all walks of
life and have a common vision: sharing
a message of hope and opportunity with
each and every young person they reach.
JA volunteers believe they can make a
difference and teach eight million stu-
dents a year that they too can make a
difference.

Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida
President Victoria Stephan
submitted by Shirley Jewell

of Southwest Florida President
Victoria Stephan and Board
Member Butch McGovern reminded us
of the mission of Junior Achievement
(JA) and the purpose and values of that
organization.
JA Worldwide is a partnership
between the business community, educa-
tors and volunteers all working together
to inspire young people to dream big
and reach their potential. JA s hands-
on programs teach the key concepts of
work readiness, entrepreneurship and
financial literacy to young people all over
the world. Stephan stated that more than
ever, it seems that we need to teach the
younger generation that there is a future
for them. They are experiencing firsthand
the fallout from the economic strife in our

Remembering my high school experi-
ence in JA, I can state that the education-
al model of business and personal success
has matured way beyond the teaching of
business principles and entrepreneurship.
Today JA is involved with classroom pro-
gramming for kindergarten through 12th
grade. It helps students understand the
importance of work readiness, entrepre-
neurship, and financial literacy. In recent
years, the financial life of the typical
American family has become increasingly
complex.
Did you realize that Florida has man-
dated the teaching of financial literacy
to our students, but this mandate is not
funded? Did you realize that around
60 percent of the student body in Lee
County is classified as coming from low-
income families? Economic family situ-
ations can stifle dreams for a successful
future. The basic economic principles of
making a budget, balancing a checkbook,
and credit card risks have to be taught.
Not only does JA teach basic financial
skills, but also what steps you need to
take to achieve financial success.

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




Landing 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.

RES IISE- Agencies Continue To Monitor
Walter Quality To Prevent
Unnecessary Fishing Bans
S tate agencies in Florida as well as several federal agencies involved in the
~response to the Deepwater Horizon Incident in the Gulf of Mexico continue to
Conduct tests, including sampling of water, fish, shellfish and habitats along the
Florida coastline and into the Gulf of Mexico.
Officials with the Florida Department of Agriculture, Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) and Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have indicated they
have no intention of halting commercial and recreational fishing in Florida until there is
evidence that the action is necessary.
"Florida seafood has not been impacted by this oil spill at all and is completely
safe," said Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Charles Bronson. "There
a is no reason to take any action at this point and numerous agencies continue to moni-
tor the situation and take test samples and will ensure the integrity of any seafood
product being sold."
While the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has tempo-
rarily closed off portions of federal waters from Louisiana to Pensacola to offshore fish-
ing, inshore waters have not been impacted by the action. The closure in the Florida
Panhandle impacts waters at least 20 miles from shore.
Currently, numerous species of seafood including grouper, shrimp, flounder and
swordfish as well as shellfish are safely being harvested in Florida waters and federal
waters not included in the temporary closure. At this time, there are no indications of
any health risks to Floridians due to the Deepwater Horizon incident. The Department
of Health (DOH) and DEP are closely monitoring health and environmental impacts to
: ~Florida s beaches and will notice an advisory if conditions become unsafe.
The movement of the oil spill is heavily dependent on weather conditions so it is
: difficult to predict what will happen beyond about 72 hours. However, response agen-
cies have indicated that weather conditions have improved enough to facilitate resum-
ing applying dispersants and skimming operations.
" The federal and state governments have strong systems in place to test and monitor
seafood safety and to prohibit harvesting from affected areas and keeping oiled prod-
ucts out of the marketplace. NOAA Fisheries is working closely with the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration and the states to ensure seafood safety, by assessing whether
seafood is tainted or contaminated to levels that pose a risk to human health.
Agency leaders are concerned that misconceptions about the status of seafood

became a battle of will power in this
marathon of a fight. This unstoppable tar-
pon towed us back and forth across the
intercoastal three different times trying to
wrap the line on a channel marker while
flirting with big boats running up and
down the channel.
Forty-five minutes into the fight the
estimated 120-pounder was still jump-
ing. About a hour and 10 into the fight I
decided to hammer down the drag on the
big spinning reel to the almost breaking
point of the 50-pound braided line. The
fish immediately responded by making
two greyhound style jumps like it was just
hooked and it peeled off another 50
yards of line bringing the angler almost to
his knees.
My clients fought the fish as hard as
they could for 15 minutes or so then
they would hand off the rod back and
forth. With an almost fresh set of hands
and arms giving the optimum pressure
on this big tarpon it was bound to wear
out soon. After a hour and 20 minutes,
the tarpon ended up towing us up onto
a shallow flat just south of Cabbage Key
where I thought we had it whipped. I
power-poled down so we could drag it up
close to the boat for a quick photo and
release. The fish would get within 20 feet


of the boat then pull out another
20 feet of line while making
circles around the now stationary
boat. Holding the spool of the
reel and giving the fish the down
and dirty would not make this
tarpon give it up.
When a tarpon fight goes on
more than the usual half hour
or so you start to worry about
all the things that can go wrong
and possibly break. The leader
can fray and chafe through if the
fish has the hook deep inside its
mouth; the main line can break
from being tail-whipped or from
just bumping across the tarpon's
dorsel fin; a mackerel or shark
can swim into the line and cut it;
the hook can loosen up and pull
out, etc., etc.
I knew we were on borrowed
time at a hour and a half into the watch o
battle.
Then it happened; the rod
popped up and the tarpon was gone. As
the line came in there it was the tar-
pon's bony mouth had snapped the barb
off the shank of the heavy duty circle
hook. It had won the battle and my two
exhausted clients sat down on the gunnels
of the boat dripping sweat and drinking
cold water in disbelief of how strong this
fish was. They did everything right and
just could not close the deal.
We motored a mile or so back to my
anchor buoy and jumped another two fish
we could not get to stick before calling it
a day.


,ut for that rogue tarpon

When your first tarpon ever is jacked
up on steroids with super fish strength
all you can do is book another couple of
trips for your visit next year and hope for
just a regular tarpon.

The Sanibel School will celebrate more than 100 years of educating children on
June 6 from noon to 4 p.m.
The cost is $15 for adults and $10 for children and includes food, beverages, and
birthday cake. There will be fun on the beach and games for the children, a chance to
soak "special guests" in a dunk tank, and a birthday party-themed silent auction.
As part of the ticket price, YOLO Watersports owned by Sanibel School parents
Marcel and Betsy Ventura is sponsoring Banana Boat rides for children over 48" tall.
In addition to YOLO, sponsors to date include The Mucky Duck, South Seas Island
Resort, and RED Salon & Spa.
The fundraiser will benefit the Sanibel School Fund, a nonprofit organization that
raises money to pay for programs such as foreign-language instruction and technol-
ogy 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.

Plant Smart:

Sunshine Mimosa
by Gerri Reaves
Do you want relief from the never-
I ending cycle of mowing, irrigat-
L/ing, and fertilizing the lawn?
Sunshine mimosa (Mimosa strigillosa)
can help.
This fast-growing native groundcover
thrives in full sun, tolerates foot traffic,
and grows to several inches high.
The showy flowers that appear in
spring and summer give the plant the
common name powderpuff. About one
inch in diameter, they are comprised of
pink stamens tipped with yellow pollen
and are a nectar source for butterflies.
This member of the pea family
spreads via underground stems called
rhizomes, creating a thick mat of fern-like
blue-green leaves.
A deep root system makes this species
highly drought-tolerant and useful in ero-
sion control as well.
Once established, sunshine mimosa
needs no irrigation and is virtually mainte-
nance free.
Despite the plant s toughness and
resilience, it also has the common name
sensitive plant because the leaves fold
upon being touched.
Propagate this native groundcover
with cuttings or seeds found in the brown
pods.
And then give the lawn mower a rest.

CROW Case Of The Week:

Least Bittern
by Brian Johnson

Kimberly
O a Easton was
driving on Veterans
Parkway in Cape
Coral when she
spotted a least bit-
tern out of the cor-
ner of her eye.
He was standing
on the shoulder of
the road, a bit dazed and definitely out of
place. She turned back to get him.
"I keep a towel in my car," said
Easton. "I knew he was in trouble
because he let me pick him up... but he
was a feisty little guy and had kind of a
long beak for a little bird."
She made a phone call and learned
that South Trail Animal Hospital had
someone heading for CROW and Sanibel
Island shortly. She immediately drove 30
minutes in the opposite direction to catch
the transport opportunity to fast medical
attention.
"He squawked underneath the towel
once in a while on the drive," she said.
At CROW staff found that the least
bittern had no fractures from the pre-
sumed collision with a car, but did have
a ruptured air sac, creating an air bubble
under skin.
Staff gave him Arnica (for trauma)
and Yunnan Paiyao (to stop any potential
inner bleeding). With pink mucous mem-


The least bittern at CROW
branes and an energetic disposition, he
seemed in good condition other than the
air sac
Staff created a hiding place of palm
fronds and seagrapes in a cage for the
61-gram bittern, who would spend most
of his time at the clinic quietly keeping
out of sight. Generally speaking, it's not
easy to detect these reclusive creatures in
the wild.
Dr. Amber McNamara created a menu
for the little bird of smelt, crickets, blood
worms, meal worms and mice, but he
did not want to eat a thing. "I gave him
about every food product we have, but he
thought it was a waste of time!" said Dr.
Amber
They tube-fed him cat chow slurry to
provide caloric intake.


The least bittern in threat mode


On Day 5 Joe Stahl caught live min-
nows in the water adjacent to the CROW
driveway and brought them in a bowl to
the least bittern, who plucked them out
at once. "That really jump-started his
eating," said Dr. Amber. "Within a few
days he was eating 12 whole smelt." His
weight rose from 61 to 66 grams.
"This bird did fantastic," said Dr.
Amber. "He was very pokey with his
beak the whole time, and quick to go into
his threat displays, and very talkative for
such a little heron."
The least bittern was released back to
Cape Coral on May 17. "That makes me
so happy," said Easton on hearing the
news.


The least bittern is one of the small-
est of the herons. The Cornell Lab of
Ornithology gives the following "cool
fact" about this species: "Thanks to its
habit of straddling reeds, the least bittern
can feed in water that would be too deep
for the wading strategy of other herons.

ISLAND SUN MAY 21, 2010 25


by Rae Ann Wessel, SCCF Natural Resource Policy Director
SIince April the Caloosahatchee has been receiving summer volumes of flow out
~of Lake Okeechobee. On Tuesday, May 11, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
JJacksonville District Commander, C~olonel Alfred A. Pantano, Jr., came to Lee
County to address local residents and the Lee County Commission regarding these
unseasonably high flow releases being discharged from Lake Okeechobee.
On Wednesday and Thursday, the South Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD) Governing Board and Colonel Pantano heard public comment on the effects
of those releases on the estuaries at the governing board meeting in Stuart. The mes-
sage they heard from both Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie advocates was loud and clear:
find alternatives to blowing out our natural resources.
SCCF policy staff carried the concerns of our stakeholders to these meetings, urging
the agencies to find additional emergency options for storage and commenting on the
decision matrix used for making lake release decisions. Unfortunately, the man-made
flood control system created over 60 years ago in South Florida was built upon dump-
ing massive quantities of water down the two rivers to their coastal estuaries. Changing
the status quo will require our continued involvement and communication with the dis-
trict and the corps.
In 2005, then-Sanibel-Mayor Carla Brooks Johnston challenged the SFWMD to
find 450,000 acre feet of emergency, alternative storage an amount equivalent to
one foot of water off the lake -- to relieve the estuaries. At the governing board meet-
ing in Stuart, the district announced it has 126,350 acre feet of water storage already
online and is working on another 366,700 acre feet of storage. A map of these sites
and tables of the storage acreage can be viewed on our website at: www.secf.org/con-
tent/1 81 /caloosahatchee-and-estualy-conditions .aspx.
The crushing reality is that none of the storage for lake water is south of the lake,
where it all flowed historically. The storage that currently exists south of the lake is
being used up by agricultural land owners for their own runoff. So until alternative stor-
age is available and the U.S. Sugar purchase moves forward, there are few alternatives
for the amount of water being dumped out the estuaries to tide.
The releases have made a difference in the lake's level, which has fallen from a high
of 15.1 feet to its current 14.6 feet, levels characteristic of the rainy season. These high
levels going into the rainy season are a serious concern for the corps because water
levels in the lake can rise six times faster than water can be released and the rainy sea-
son is just weeks away. Trying to balance these conflicts between the safety of the dike
and damage to the estuary, Colonel Pantano has committed to being as conservative as
possible, holding water in the lake longer if it can help reduce estuary releases.
However, at the current discharge rate to the Caloosahatchee and St Lucie, it will
take 40 days to drop the lake one foot, the target the corps will try to meet before rainy
season begins on June 1. At this time of year, the greatest discharge of water out of the
lake is to the air, through evapotranspiration, commonly called ET. The current ET rate
is more than both discharges combined. Therefore, the more land we can saturate and
spread the water on, the greater the ET, resulting in less water dumped to tide. So we
continue to press for sites throughout the system north, south, east and west to be
saturated or flooded to the greatest extent possible.
On Wednesday, May 12, the Corps began a 10-day Caloosahatchee pulse release
that will continue the exceptionally high releases that began in April. These flows are
10 times greater than healthy flows, dis-
charging out to the gulf on average 3.2
billion gallons per day of freshwater the
equivalent of a 60-day water supply for the BIRE EA EDEE
600,000 residents of Lee County. H M E
The ultimate solution to these high
flows is recapturing land to store and treat BEST KIDS MIENU,

led an entertaining presentation about
Tarpon Bay s marine life.
Dr. Jackson is an expert on birds and
other wildlife and created an exciting
and informative afternoon for the group.
There are hundreds of birds nesting at the
rookeries in Tarpon Bay now, including
egrets, herons, pelicans, and cormorants,
so there was a lot to see during the tour.

Calvert was introduced to the art of photography growing up a block away from
Des Moines Art Center where work from artist such as Hopper, Wood, Bresson and
Rauschenberg regularly adorned the gallery walls. His largest influence and formal
training occurred under photographer Archie Lieberman. Today, Calvert lives blocks
away from downtown Fort Myers where he is inspired by the aesthetically and philo-
sophically pleasing subjects and landscapes of the area.
An artist living in the Fort Myers, Myers is best known for his photography which
has been published in magazines and displayed in galleries around Florida and the
U.S. Myers received the Merit Award from Black & White Magazine's Single Image
Contests in 2005 and 2009 and has received additional awards in gallery competitions
around the state. He currently serves on the board of directors of two local art orga-
nizations and is passionate about donating time and artwork to local charitable events
and causes, notably those that support cancer research and treatments.
Rodino explains his work as, "A sum of all the individual items, colors, shapes and
experiences I ve witnessed up 'til now and represent the magic I find in the everyday.
Rodino s past influences span from pop culture during The Beatles era to the introduc-
tion of the Walkman, Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid camera. He describes his inspira-
tion with photography as, "Collecting moments in everyday life. Each one becoming
its own keepsake, these slices of time are what I hold dear in my ever-expanding curio
cabinet of photography.
The exhibit will be on view Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and
Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. While on campus visit the Alliance Members Gallery
showing work by Roy Rodriguez.
The Alliance for the Arts is at the corner of Colonial and McGregor boulevards.
Visit www.ArtInLee.org or call 939-2787 for more information.M


Somewhere by Joshua Myers


Get a behind-the-scenes look at the artwork shown in the Alliance for the Arts
exhibit Under the Influence featuring Daniel Calvert, Joshua Myers and Paul
GRodino at a gallery Walk & Talk on Tuesday, May 25 at 9:30 a.m. The com-
munity is invited to meet the artists, see their work and learn about the ideas and
processes that are used in developing the artwork.
This exhibit will be display on through May 29.
Under the Influence encompasses three artist's work concentrating on the photo-
graphic image. Calvert, Myers and Rodino initiate their artistic process with a single
digital image then apply manipulation, layers and rendering to further represent their
vision.

Theatre Conspiracy will present the Southwest Florida premiere of the comedy
This comedy, written by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, directed by Bill Taylor and
starring Christopher Brent, Virginia Grace and Tera Nicole Miller is one of the hottest
plays across the country. "Sex to change the course of the world..." is part of a grad
student s personal ad that lures a randy journalism coed to his subterranean biology
lab, where he studies the sleep cycle of fish for signs of the end of the world. Will their
"intensely significant coupling" lead to another big bang, will meaningless sex have
meaning, or is mankind s fate in the hands of someone outside the fishbowl?
Boom had its world premiere production at Arts Nova in New York City in March
of 2008, subsequent productions have been held at Wooly Mammoth Theatre in
Washington, DC and Seattle Repertory in Seattle, Washington.
Nachtrieb is a San Francisco-based playwright whose other works include Hunter
Gatherers, Colorado, TIC.(Trenchcoat In Common), and Multiplex. His work
has been seen off-Broadway and across the country at Actors Theatre of Louisville,
Brown/Trinity Playwrights Rep, the Bailiwick Theatre and Cleveland Public Theatre.
Hunter Gatherers received the 2007 American Theatre Critics Association/Steinberg
New Play Award for best new play to premiere outside of New York and the 2007
Will Glickman Prize for best new play. Nachtrieb is under commission from South
Coast Rep and is a resident playwright at the Playwrights Foundation, San Francisco.
He holds a degree in Theater and Biology from Brown and an MFA in creative writ-
ing from San Francisco State University.
Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. with one Saturday matinee
on June 12 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults and $10 for students. Opening night
May 28 is "pay what you will" where you name the ticket price. Thursday perfor-
mances are "buy one ticket, get the second ticket half price." For tickets call Theatre

The rise of a gold standard was meant
to stabilize the global economy, dictating
that a nation must limit its issued currency
to the amount of gold it held in reserve.
Great Britain was the second country to
adopt the gold standard in 1821 and by
the 1870s the rest of Europe followed.
The system remained in effect until the
end of World War I, after which the U.S.
was the only country still honoring the
gold standard.
After the war, other countries were
allowed to keep reserves of major cur-
rencies instead of gold. The arrival of
the Great Depression marked the end
of the U.S. export of gold in the 1930s.
By mid 20th century, the U.S. dollar had
replaced gold in international trade.
As gold's popularity waned as the
standard for trade, and continued as the
standard for the creation of beautiful
jewelry, the use of gold for use in sci-
ence and industry increased. A standard
touch-tone telephone would not function
without the 33 gold contacts found in
every one. Air bag systems in more than
30 million cars around the world rely on
gold-coated electrical contacts. And every
time you touch a key on your computer it
strikes a gold circuit that relays your com-
mand to the computer's microprocessor.
Gold is one of the most effective con-
ductors of electricity known to man, and
its reliability compared with other metals
such as palladium or copper is increased
by the fact that gold is also an excellent
conductor of heat. Gold is also inert and,

Hidden Treasures Part 2 of 2

Gold Is Part


by Dan Schuyler
and Karen Bell

fontier days
o rngtef the United
States, news of the
discovery of gold
in a region would
result in thousands of new settlers,
many risking their lives to find the pre-
cious metal. The first recorded discovery
of gold in the U.S. was in 1799 in
North Carolina, with the uncovering of
a 17i-pound gold nugget in a creek. This
started a gold rush in the state, with
North Carolina becoming the supplier
of all of the domestic gold coined by the
U.S. Mint in Philadelphia.
The most famous of all gold rushes
occurred in California at Sutter's Mill in
1848. Elsewhere, gold rushes happened
in Australia in 1851, South Africa in
1884 and in Canada in 1897. These
discoveries and supplementary increase
in gold supply marked a turning point.
Gold, once a rare metal afforded only
by royalty was now more attainable by
people of all classes.
In 1787, the first United States gold
coin was created by goldsmith Ephraim
Brasher. Five years later Congress passed
the Coinage Act, placing the country
on a bi-metal silver/gold standard that
defined the value of the dollar as being
equivalent to a certain amount of silver
or gold.

ing at Cornell
University and

higl rtgad d warren woessner
literary maga-
zine Abraxas as well as the Madison,
Wisconsin radio station WORT-FM. '
His new collection, Clear All The Rest
Of The Way, contains poems which are
ruggedly individualistic in their style and
phrasing. They recall tough times; some
remembered with regret. Letter To Hilton
From Madison is particularly compelling
in its representation of a down day, the
litany begins, "It s Saturday. The light that
never got to work is falling down drunk on
a stormy afternoon. ...and ends "I'm not
sure if I'm lonely, But I'm going to stick
around and find out.
Most of Woessner s poetry tells stories
in a few short but clear phrases, The Men
Who Fish work in a paint factory; "...tet-
raethyl lead. Shorted their nerves... years
back... but Uncle Dupont keeps them on
though all they do is clock in and fish." It
was my first day at the plant... I milled dye
samples from the vats... On break, when
I spit green, they kidded "the new colored
boy." Good dye, it stuck to skin... we
scrubbed... then bleached purple skin with Clorox to get white again...
What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life? has a wrenching first stanza, "I
hear you're gone, and know the answer to that song for you, wrapped in vibes, adul-
tery, charm and magic.
And the coarse reality of Gun Control Means Aiming Right tells of a robbery of
an NRA enthusiast, "Real rifles hung on the walls like bars, strong enough to keep
whole races out." Amusingly he is robbed, cops said his NRA decal "...was more like
an ad for a gun shop, open twenty-four hours. They made a list, shook their heads
and left...
Newu York Saturday recalls a day ... "So cool and gray I really mean to stay in and
clean up but a cardinal lands on the balcony..." He buys a "black not-too-shiny jacket...
probably made in some not-so-free corner of the free world." As readers we cheer and
identify with his perfect pitch in capturing New York (or any big city) when "a cardinal
lands on the balcony.
December Blues is.a word picture of a mind-crossing moment when a siren
screams on an "early dark" evening, "House gone up with tree and presents, maybe
tahreal atby lost as well. They are always so poor to begin with, and no one ever gets
In his most introspective poem Late Wife Dream he begins, "You come back and
ask what s not new." And he recalls the old pieces of furniture and where they came
from "but you ve vanished from the photos replaced by another face... don t say I
can t speak for you, now it s what I do.
And lastly, his title piece, Angel, about following a beloved mentally in a road trip
cross country, "...on the other side of the Alleghanies lights are on in all the small
towns. Love, it s clear all the rest of the way.

Former Dodgers Player

Presents Little League Trophies






















Jim Sprankle signing Marissa Thomas' glove
by Eric Pfeifer
S anibel Little League culminated the g y
season with a jamboree on Saturday,
SMay 15. A Home Run Derby, Pitching
Contest and Running Contest were held for .-
each age division with prizes going to the top
three finalists. One hundred seventy island
kids, ages four to 14, played baseball, softball ..'.
and T-ball this spring.
The kids received their trophies from Sanibel
resident and retired Major League Baseball.
Player Jim Sprankle. Sprankle played for .. .
the Brooklyn Dodgers and was donning his
World Series Championship ring from 1955
which was the only year the Dodgers beat the
Yankees. Although many of the kids had not heard of the Brooklyn Dodgers, Sprankle
gave them some great advice when he told the kids, "Never let anyone tell you that
you can't do anything in life." He also said that sports are a great part of life because
players learn to work with each other as a team, and they learn about winning and los-
ing.

we want to use a little bit of wrist action
to take the club back, this will allow the
club to "dig" into the grass a little through
impact and propel the ball into the air.
For this lie we want to only go down
through the grass enough to get the ball
out, do not let the club strike the ground
at impact.
Lie #3: Buried
This is the one where the ball is sitting
all the way down to the ground and you
can barely see the top of it if you find it
at all!
On this one we want to use a lot of
wrist action on the backswing so the club
will come down steeply through the grass
into the ball. We want to make sure on
this one that we strike the ground firmly
to get the ball to pop out. Also, make
sure you follow through to a complete
finish, do not let the grass stop the club!
These shots just take a little practice
to get the feel for how hard to swing the
club to get your ball to go the distance
and trajectory you want.#

PGA Tips

PION/ing FFOm
Bermuda Rough
by Matt Oakley
PGA Golf '
Professional
'" n Florida we
have a type
'' Iof grass called
Bermuda that is
prevalent at most
golf courses. When
this grass grows
long it can be very
difficult to hit solid and straight shots
towards your target. In my opinion,
there are three types of lies in this
Bermuda rough. Here is a tip for play-
ing out of each of these three lies:
Lie #1: Fluffy
This is the one where the ball is sit-
ting up in the rough on top of the grass
completely.
Because the ball is sitting on top of
the grass we do not want the club to hit
the ground, rather we want to brush the
grass. To do this, choke down on the club
several inches at address and make prac-
tice swings only brushing the grass, not
going all the way to the ground. Hit the
shot with the brushing stroke and it will
fly right out!
Lie #2: Middle
This is the one where the ball is not
quite fluffy, but also not all the way down
to the ground.
This lie demands that we go back to
the full length of the club at address. Next

frAmenmcaontLh au hs aiss reveal why the Rays have been the best in baseball the
Infielder Evan Longoria is second in the league with 31 RBIs. Right-hander Jim
Shields, with a 4-1 record, tops the league with 59 strikeouts. And reliever Rafael
Soriano is 10 for 10 in save opportunities, tied for second in the AL.
Tampa Bay acquired the hard-throwing Soriano in the off-season from the Atlanta
Braves and signed him to a one-year, $7.25 million deal. It's an investment that has
paid dividends already.
Madden said that Soriano's sterling performance has improved his entire bullpen
which compiled a 1.28 ERA this past month.
No question that the Rays' starting pitching is as good as it gets in baseball. That
rotation is anchored by Matt Garza, Shields and David Price. They were 14-3 begin-
ning this week.
But it's their fourth starter, Jeff Niemann, who is getting the accolades.
"I'm probably more impressed with him than I am anybody else on the whole
staff," Rays pitching coach Jim Hickey said recently.
Just his second year in the majors, the 6-foot-9-inch right hander is 12-2 with the
3.37 ERA over 173 2/3 innings since last June. He was 3-0 this season when the
week began.

Tampa Bay Has Baseball's Best
Reod But Wher Ar The F SCfGe1 nU *
by Ed Frank
rhey started the week with the best record in baseball at
S26-11 yet they average little more than 23,000 fans a
Game, one of the lowest in the Major Leagues. They play
just about 100 miles north of here, but it appears that few
here in Florida care little about the Tampa Bay Rays.
It's a puzzling fact, and it has been year after year despite the
fact that the Rays field a competitive team season in and season
out.
Their pitching is solid, their offense is strong and they have
one of the best managers around in Joe Maddon. But where are
the fans?
Tampa Bay increased its payroll this year to $71,923,000, up from $63,313,000
last season. That's still about $135 million less than the New York Yankees whom they
led by two games in the tough American League Eastern Division as the week began.

Chef Greg Nelson visits with diners
Sanibel's Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille was recognized in a Newu York Times
Magazine food feature by Sam Sifton. The dish that got attention was Yucatan
Shrimp; fresh, boiled shrimp tossed in garlic butter with Indonesian sambal,
and jalapeno, with a touch of lime and cilantro.
The article featured chef Greg Nelson's recipe and restaurant co-owner Randy
Wayne White's 17-book series of Doc Ford's mysteries. Doc Ford is portrayed as a
former government agent who has "retired" to Sanibel Island as a marine biologist. As
he yearns for the contemplative life of science, he finds himself regularly involved in
intrigue with crimes and miscreants.
Sifton points out that food plays a role in White's mystery novels. Doc Ford and his
off-sider, Tomlinson, frequently are found in Doc Ford's Sanibel stilt-house cooking and
talking. "Cooking not only whets the appetite, it sharpens all our senses, which makes
it the best possible time for honest talk, factual and fanciful," according to an email
from White that Sifton quoted.
Co-owner Marty Harrity added, "As Sam Sifton has identified and aptly shared with
thousands of readers on Sunday, the food at Doc Ford's is where it starts. You've got
to have great food, ambiance and service to deliver a memorable dining experience."M

many ways, from
redefining spaces to
reshaping awkward
floor plans.
While the Chinese are thought to
have originated the folding screen, the
Japanese soon embraced the idea with
their rendition; a rigid framed paper style,
the shoji. In the 17th century, the screen
became an important design feature in
Europe.
Before selecting a screen, determine
the function it is to fulfill. Will it hide
an unattractive view? Divide a too-large
room into two spaces? Perhaps create a
foyer area where none exists? It can even
serve to protect your rugs and furnish-
ings from the damages of the sunrays.
The folding multi-panel style is the most
versatile. This screen can be extended or
compacted as needed and is easily trans-
portable. A four- or six-panel screen can
be divided in half and installed as indoor
shutters for sliding patio doors.
SWhen the only purpose of a screen
is to add drama and beauty to a room,
your choices are endless. While there are
many sources for beautiful screens, you

Gold
therefore, does not react when it comes
into contact with other substances. In
addition, gold does not corrode or tar-
nish, so it is much more reliable than
other metals in electronic applications.
From the wearable standpoint,
modern-day Italy has remained at the
forefront of the gold jewelry industry. The
Italian Renaissance coincided with the
discoveries of the new sources of gold,
and wealthy Italian patrons supported
goldsmiths as they did painters and sculp-
tors. Today, factories that automate hun-
dreds of machines that "knit" gold wire
into chain flourish in towns and villages
throughout the Italian countryside. Still of
value after 5,000 years of use, is there
gold in your future?

Center understand how frightening
and confusing a diagnosis of can-


cer can be. That is why they developed
a Cancer Nurse Navigator Program.
Navigation is a process of care man-
agement that begins when a person
receives a suspicious finding or a cancer
diagnosis. This one-on-one assistance
helps to ensure timely diagnosis and treat-
ment by addressing needs that may arise
during this experience.
Dedicated cancer navigators are
nurses with specialized knowledge of
specific cancers and a great compassion
for those struggling with cancer. The
Nurse Navigator functions as a liaison
to enhance the quality and continuity of
care and help guide through all of the
complexities that a diagnosis of cancer
can create.
Navigators help you understand your
diagnosis and the treatment options you
have. They may coordinate tests and
medical appointments and will assist you
in accessing appropriate resources and
referrals.
Cancer Navigation Services are free
to individuals who are currently undergo-
ing treatment or have a history of breast
cancer. For more information call 343-

Carroll. "Encouraging stories are endless.
We even have one director who was able
to quit by her whole department cheering
her on.

From page 39
Ed Frank
The Rays moved their spring training base to
nearby Port Charlotte last year and have drawn well,
averaging more than 100,000 fans during these two
Grapefruit League seasons.
But it's sure a different matter once they break
camp and return home to St. Petersburg for the regu-
lar season.
If you know the reason for the lack of support, I'm
certain their management would like the answer.
Mutt and Jeff Duo Reunited with Miracle
The Minnesota Twins last week assigned Loek Van
Mil, the tallest pitcher in professional baseball at 'i-foot-
1, to the Fort Myers Miracle. He was moved to the
Miracle from extended spring training where he was
recovering from an arm injury.
Van Mil recorded five saves in 25 games for the
Miracle last season while posting a 2.86 ERA. He is
reunited with the shortest player in baseball, Miracle
infielder Chris Cates who is only 5-foot-3.
Also named to the Miracle squad from extended
spring training was left-hander Andrei Lobanov, a
20-year-old native from Moscow, Russia. The Miracle
roster now has players from six different countries.
Fort Myers is home this weekend at Hammond
Stadium opposing the Daytona Cubs at 7:05 p.m.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a 1:05 start
Sunday. They started the week with a 16-20 season
record, 4V/2 gameS back of first-place
Bradenton.4

Foundation Allocates $755,000
For Lee Memorial Cancer Facilities
L ee Memorial Health System Foundation has allocated over $755,845 to pro-
Svide health system improvements and purchase life-saving equipment in its
-ospitals.
An allocation of $500,000 was approved to refurbish Lee Memorial Hospital's
North Inpatient Oncology Unit. Funds will go to replace carpets, paint, furniture and
woodwork to provide a more appealing and comfortable environment for cancer
patients being treated in the 24-bed unit.
The sum of $101,527 was approved to purchase a Stryker Tower for pediatric
laparoscopic surged). The new technology will provide specialty instruments and equip-
ment for use in the pediatric general and orthopedic emergency room areas. The spe-
cialized scopes provided with the tower measure only 2.9mm.
Three new EKG machines will be purchased for $35,626. They will be placed in
the HealthPark Medical Center emergency room areas where over 150 EKG proce-
dures are performed daily.
Two new GE Giraffe Omnibeds were approved for purchase with $86,692 allo-
cated from The Piper Buckley Memorial Fund. These beds serve as an environment
that closely replicates the womb for infants born prematurely. The beds will be housed
in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at The Children's Hospital of Southwest
Florida and will reduce diversions to Tampa and Miami and keep babies closer to
home for treatment.
An further $32,000 was approved for the purchase of a Gambro Prismaflex
System for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) from funds raised through the
SWFL Wine & Food Fest. The new equipment will support dialysis in children and
will be primarily utilized by a pediatric nephrologist a new addition to The Children's
Hospital staff. This new system and pediatric specialist hire will help provide care that
was previously only available in Tampa and Miami.
All funds allocated were generated through philanthropic dollars and the ongoing
support of the Southwest Florida community. For information on current needs within
Lee Memorial Health System or to make a personal or corporate gift, contact the
foundation office at 985-3550.

Brisk morning walks! If you adopt me we can
start a summer fitness program together. It's aevn w-erodbidemxadIlv
great way to stay in shape and bond at the same
time. That's what I want most to find someone
special that can be my best friend and companion.
We can always be there for each other whether
we are playing or just hanging out. My adoption
fee is only $37.50 (half off the regular adoption
fee of $75 during the May Madness Adoption
Promotion at Lee County Domestic Animal
Services).
My name is Sasha. I was just a wee little kitten
when I came to Animal Services. I ve practically
grown up here at the shelter so I'm very anxious
to get my forever home. While I ve been here
everyone has been very nice and given me lots of
love. In fact, I love to give hugs! I could share all
my hugs you if you'd adopt me. My adoption fee
is also only $37.50 (half off the regular adoption
fee during May).
For information about this week's pets, call
533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal
Services' Web site at www.LeeLostPets.com.
When calling, please refer to the animal's ID num-
ber. The Web site updates every hour so you will
be able to see if these or any other pets are still
available .
The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort
Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, off
Six Mile Cypress Parkway.
All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery,
age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies vaccination
and county license if three months or older, flea
treatment, worming, heartworm test for dogs six
months and over, feline AIDS and leukemia test
for cats, training DVD, 10-day health guarantee,
and a bag of Science Diet pet food.
The adoption package is valued at $500.0

Canine Parvo Virus On The Rise
Lee County Domestic Animal Services (LCDAS) is urging all pet owners to vaccinate their dogs
for parvo-virus. Animal control officers have seen several cases among stray dogs in the com-
muiyand local clinics have reported an increase in cases as well.
"The parvo-virus is highly contagious, expensive to treat, and often fatal despite treatment," warns
LCDAS veterinarian, Peter Davis.
PAWS Lee County, a low-cost clinic in North Fort Myers, has seen quite a few dogs with the illness
recently. "We took six calls over just one weekend," said PAWS owner Theresa Ink, "and some of
the dogs had never been to a vet." These owners learned a lesson the hard way and that's something
Animal Services and local clinics want to see change through preventive pet care, especially vaccina-
tions.
Parvo-virus is spread from dog to dog by direct or indirect contact with their feces. It can be espe-
cially severe in puppies that are not protected by maternal antibodies or vaccination. The common
signs are severe vomiting and diarrhea. The virus can live in organic matter, such as soil, for over a
year. Victims of this virus die of dehydration as the virus attacks the intestinal lining.
It is extremely important to animal shelters that the public vaccinate their pets, as these are the same
pets that might end up at the shelter if they get lost. LCDAS has taken a proactive role in the commu-
nity and, as always, vaccinates all dogs entering the shelter against the parvo-virus.
More information about proper pet care is available at www.leelostpets.
com.
