The Simplicity Of A Movie Reminds

Us Of The Legacy We Can Leave


by Arlene Knox, Director of
Relationships, Southwest Florida
Community Foundation

Forrest Gump?
I never tire of Forrest, his
lifetime journey, and the eventual circle
to his beginnings. Most folks have seen
this movie at least three times. If you
are like me, you clutch a pack of tissues
and alternate between tears of laughter
and sadness. And you probably cry at
the same scenes, even though you know
what's coming.
One touching scene highlights the
universal sentiment of humanity. Forrest


Gump is called home to his dying mother.
In their final conversation, Forrest (Tom
Hanks), asks his mother Mrs. Gump
(Sally Field), "What's my destiny, Mama?"
to which she famously replies, "You're
gonna have to figure that out for yourself.
Life is a box of chocolates, Forrest. You
never know what you're gonna get."
Is it really true that our life path is
determined by chance choices? Can we
create our own destiny, or is it already
determined by our surroundings, luck,
and circumstance? What are destiny and
its close companion, legacy?
Webster defines a legacy as "some-
thing transmitted by or received from
an ancestor or predecessor or from the
past." It's a talent, a gift, a custom, or a
way of life that is delivered from the past
to the future. A destiny is a "will of force
or a determining cause by which things
in general are believed to come to be as
they are." It's what will happen.
Perhaps we can determine our destiny
by creating a legacy.
For some of us, to find our legacy
we look no further than our children.
Parents, caregivers, teachers, daycare
workers, pediatricians, and other adults
who work with children understand that
they are glimpsing into the future and
that they have some control (albeit lim-
ited) as to the outcome. They love chil-
dren, train them, teach them, and point
them in the right direction. They have
helped create a new being that will enter


the future and carry on.
For others, a legacy is created through
some time-honored family tradition.
Think about a family-owned restaurant
operated by three generations of the
same family a rich work ethic carried
from family to family. Or a promise made
by a grandfather and carried out by his
grandchildren to always have an empty
place at the table for a guest or person
in need. These actions are carried out for
the good of a future recipient.
We help build legacies at the Good
Neighbor Community Foundation of
Sanibel Captiva when an individual
wants to help a nonprofit or a segment
of society. An individual can change the
future, even after death, by establishing
an endowed fund. Legacy gifts, gener-
ally defined as gifts through your will or
estate, can be used to establish the fund
for perpetuity. And he or she can cre-
ate a legacy for their own family; future
generations can contribute to the fund
and grow it to meet community needs.
The fund can be earmarked for a specific
nonprofit, a general area of need in the
community, or left to be used where most
needed in Southwest Florida.
Creating your own legacy begins
by thinking about important moments
in your life. Military service, a difficult
childhood, witnessing injustice, caring
for a disabled sibling, living with a drug-
addicted family member, and other life
experiences shape our perspectives of
how we want to change the future for the
better. Conversations with family, clergy,
professional advisors, or close friends
can also help define a future legacy. Of
course, you can always reflect on Mrs.


Gump's wise advice to Forrest: "I happen
to believe you make your own destiny.
You have to do the best with what God
gave you.
The destiny of your community is
determined by the legacy you leave to
others.
The Good Neighbor Community
Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva is a divi-
sion of the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation, which has been support-
ing the communities of Lee, Charlotte,
Collier, Glade, and Hendry counties for
over 33 years. Through 331 endowed
funds, the foundation has provided more
than $46 million in grants and scholar-
ships to the communities it serves. For

Miss Florida
Climbs Sanibel
Lighthouse For
Cancer Research


Megan Clementi about to begin her climb
of Sanibel Lighthouse's 135 steps
by Anne Mitchell
Miss Florida, 26-year-old Megan
Clementi, climbed the 135 steps
of Sanibel's historic lighthouse
on Tuesday and scratched one more
lighthouse off the 30 she plans to visit


and climb before her
reign ends July 10.
Clementi's Climb for
the Cure, which she cre-
ated, is to scale all the
climbable lighthouses in
the state, a total of 30,
to raise money for breast
cancer research for the
Susan G. Komen fund.
She began her challenge
in January and is closing
in on her goal.
"I thought it would
bring new attention to
the cause and to high-
light the need to restore
our Florida lighthouses,"
she added.
After Sanibel,
Clementi went on to
Port Boca Grande and
Gasparilla Island light-
houses. The previous
day she had climbed
Hillsboro and Cape
Florida lights.
With her on Sanibel
was John Kennedy, Megan Clemenl
treasurer of the Florida
Lighthouse Association.
"Quite a few lighthouses are not climb-
able," he said. "Cape Canaveral is under
construction until August," he added.
There are also reef lights that aren't
physically climbable.
"I wish I could spend more time in
each city," said Clementi. I have made so
many contacts. Her personal favorite was
the Old St. Joe Lighthouse "because a


ti with U.S. Coast Guard officers Smith and Toval, who accompanied her on the climb


person actually lives in it and he showed
us around."
Upon her graduation from Jupiter
High School, Clementi auditioned for
Tokyo Disneyland's only dance show,
Once upon a Mouse. Before she knew it,
she moved halfway around the world to
perform for seven months.
In the fall of 2004, she became an


Orlando Magic dancer and was named
captain for 2006-09 and was a game
emcee during the past two seasons.
Clementi attended the University of
Central Florida where she received her
bachelor's degree in electrical engineering
and minored in engineering leadership.4

Local Lions Donate To Florida Camp


Wally Cain, a Kiwanian; George McKinnell; Barb Cage, camp administrator; Dick Travas;
Dean Skaugstad and Liz Cage, camp director
he Sanibel Captiva Lions Club presented a $5,400 donation to the Florida
Lions Camp.
Established in 1974, the Florida Lions Camp is a private non-profit, inclusive
camp dedicated to serving the needs of youth of varying ability levels, and adults with
physical and developmental challenges. The camp is considered to be one of the lead-
ing inclusive facilities of this type in the United States.
Between October 2008 and September 2009, the Florida Lions Camp sponsored
136 campers from Lee County, of whom nine were from Sanibel. The camp provides
a variety of traditional summer activities such as swimming, outdoor camping and
sporting events adapting them to the age and ability of each camper to ensure maxi-
mum participation, safety and fun. In addition to other seasonal programs the Florida
Lions Camp provides year-round respite services for the campers' caregivers.
For more information about the Florida Lions Camp, visit: www.lionscampfl.org.
"We would like to thank all those who have contributed," said Tom Hoover, the
Lions Club's incoming president. "Your ongoing support is essential to the Sanibel
Captiva Lions Club and to our commitment to serve such worthwhile causes in our
own community, as well as around the globe. "

Keep Eyes On

Okeechobee
by Barbara Joy Cooley,
President, Committee of the Islands
It is good to have
friends and allies;
lit is good to
know we are not
alone.
That thought has
come to me often
lately, especially in
my role with the
Committee of the
Islands. So many
people here pitch in
to help protect our
sanctuary island. That has been borne
out most recently in our efforts to help
prevent the brutally polluting effects of
Lake Okeechobee water releases on our
bay and estuarine habitat. The island
press has bloomed with articles about the
efforts of city council and various groups
and individuals committed to this task.
I was reminded of all this again on
June 16 as I sat at my desk reading the
latest "conversation" among my Lake
O community of email friends. This is a
group of people who have been shar-
ing emailed information, concerns, and
ideas about the Lake O water releases for
years.
I had just learned that one among us
lost a son to a car accident the previous
weekend, and I was struck by the endur-


ing nature of the relationship that we
have.
We all felt it, as if the victim were a
member of our neighborhood, although
almost none of us has ever met the
young man. We felt the pain of our col-
league who suffered that horrible loss, the
loss of a child.
This email community began in 2005,
when the waters around those of us to
the east and west of Lake Okeechobee
were suffering from nasty algae blooms
that were caused by massive releases of
Lake O water in 2004 and 2005. Oyster
and sea grass beds, scallops and fish were
dying. Some water managers hoped we
would never bond; they hoped instead
to pit the east against the west, and vice
versa.
Instead, we united. "We" are the
community leaders, some local officials,
activists and environmentalists who have
a common need to be informed about
everything having to do with the causes
of the polluting releases. We watch Lake
O like hawks. We crave information. We
provide it to each other, via an ongoing
email group that refuses to die. We want
to save our estuaries, east and west. We
want to send the Lake water to the thirsty
Everglades instead.
And in addition to sharing informa-
tion, we converse about it every time
someone hits the "reply all" button and
offers his or her two-cents. That happens
often. We learn a lot from each other.
Sometimes our "conversations" become
slightly heated, because we care.
There are about four dozen of us. We
are the kind of people who don't mind
reading 33-page reports and hundreds

of news articles that relate to the vexing
problem we share.
Send the Water South
In the west, we are empathizing with
those who are now seeing toxic blue-
green algae re-appear in the St. Lucie
River to the east of the lake. Today, as
I write, we are starting to see that blue-
green algae coming out of the lock at
Moore Haven, into the Caloosahatchee,
flowing westward. We all push together
for ways to send the water south all of
which seem to be taking way too long.
In the beginning of our community,
there were two email lists I created one
on the west, and Ted Guy created one on
the east. Ted and I had slightly different
methods for searching for and presenting
news articles, commentaries and other
information of interest to our groups.
My initial main goal was to educate and
inform local officials, who prior to 2004
did not seem to be very aware of the way
the broken water management system
worked. We had been, after all, through
years of drought when the problems
weren't so apparent.
In the early days, Ted's group was
more focused on activists who were mad
as heck, and ready to file a lawsuit. Our
groups overlapped there were east
coasters in my group who were also in
Ted's, and west coasters in Ted's group
who were also in mine.
By sometime in 2008, it was clear
to me that my goal had been achieved.
Local officials were now all painfully
aware of the problem and its causes.
There was no need for me to duplicate
Ted's efforts any longer. The die-hards
among us remained in Ted's email group,
and I put my Lake O email list of about
50 addresses to rest. The two email
groups merged.
Four Years After Charley
I sent a last email to my group on
August 14, 2008 on the fourth anniver-
sary of the day after Hurricane Charley.
Upon hearing that I was ending my email
news service, Commissioner Bob Janes
wrote, "You have performed an excellent
service to us all." A former Clinton White
House official wrote, "Your news clipping
service has been such a gift. Thanks for
doing this for so long." Members of the
board of the Committee of the Islands
wrote to thank me for the service as well.
Sanibel Natural Resources Director
Rob Loflin wrote, "Thanks for the info
over the last several years! Your emails
were often the first I'd heard of a particu-


lar development and very useful in plan-
ning strategy and pushing buttons." A
former Sanibel mayor wrote, "You have
no idea how extraordinarily useful your
clipping service has been. It has served
many people working on this issue from
many different perspectives; and I know
that our jobs would have been much
harder without your combing the press.
Those of us already occupied more hours
than there are in a day really benefited
from your service!!"
I gave instructions to my former list
members on how to set up Google and
Yahoo news alerts to take the place of
my service. But Ted's group continues
on. We owe a debt of gratitude to Ted
Guy for continuing the email news service
for the die-hards.
We've been together in cyberspace for
years now, and we show no signs of fad-
ing away, just as the perplexing problem
of Lake O water going the wrong ways
shows no sign of letting up soon. We are
scattered across the state, from east to
west, and we remain in touch almost
daily. Sometimes some of us see some
of the others in the flesh, for example
at meetings of the South Florida Water
Management District's various commit-
tees. But mostly we talk via email.
Who are we? We include scientists,
leaders of environmental groups, marina
owners, lawyers, former elected officials,
magazine publishers, boat captains, com-
munity activists, realtors, and many more.
We are information-hungry people who
love our south Florida environment, and
we won't give up.
If you are interested in joining a similar
news service, try Eco-voice.org, a public
service to facilitate the flow of informa-
tion about environmental issues and
events in South Florida.
So we, here on Sanibel, in the city
government, on the Committee of the
Islands, on the other fine groups that
seek to protect our environment, have
friends and allies across the state advanc-
ing our ideas, our causes.
We are not alone.
Note: If you have ideas or opinions
on this subject, Committee of the Islands
welcomes your input. Please email it to
coti@coti.org. To see other commentary
on the Lake O water releases, visit our

Happenings
submitted by Shirley Jewell
Afew weeks back we had Suzanne
Specht, assistant director at
the FGCU Small Business
Development Center (SBDC) speak
to us about programming of provid-
ing counseling, low-cost seminars,
workshops, and on-line training for
those that would like to start or educate
themselves about starting and succeed-
ing at running a small business. As sort
of a companion speaker, this week we
had the director of Girls Going Places
of Southwest Florida, Lynne Tarman,
and Stefanie Ink from Alliance Financial
Group, Fort Myers speak about a pro-
gram that supports, encourages, and
educates young women ages 12 to 18
about entrepreneurship and financial
independence. The program in Fort
Myers was a pilot program, which has
since gone national. This particular pro-
gram is directed to female students and
helping them realizes their dreams of
business ownership and entrepreneurial
adventures.
Each year Girls Going Places focuses
in on two important areas of encourage-
ment. First, they award cash scholar-
ships of approximately $30,000 to
three top winners and 12 finalists in the
Girls Going Places Entrepreneurship
Award contest. This contest is designed
to encourage young women that have
already shown entrepreneurial spirit (ages


12 to 18) and have
already become
involved in success-
fully demonstrating
that drive to make
their imprint on
society. The three
top winners last
year were: Jessica
Cervantes, 18,
Miami, Florida, for
creating an innova-
tive new generation
of children's treats,
Popsy Cakes;
Christina Johnson,
18, Bronx, New
York, founder of
Homestyle Caterers,
co-founder of Lynne Tarman and S
Hamilton Art Gallery
and the non-for-
profit organization
Bring it On to promote youth leadership
and community involvement; and Carly
Houlahan, 14, Devon, Pennsylvania,
who co-founded the nonprofit, Hives
For Lives, with her sister producing
honey and other hive derived products.
Within five years they have donated
over $125,000 to cancer hospitals and
research centers to help find a cure for
cancer.
The second focus has a particular local
application. Alliance Financial Group,
Florida Gulf Coast University and The
Small Business Development Center
have just sponsored a Girls Going Places
Entrepreneurship Conference at FGCU.

states, "The event joins approximately
140 female students from middle school
and high schools form the Lee, Charlotte,
Hendry and Collier counties along with
local women business owners, career
executives and entrepreneurs for activities
and discussions that introduce entrepre-
neurship and business ownership. School
administrators select girls that they feel
would most likely benefit from the infor-
mation and the experience. The best
conferences involve a diverse audience of
girls; hence, the program is not limited to
high academic achievers. The Girls Going
Places conference is a day-long workshop
designed to mentor and educate young
women ages 12 to 18 about entrepre-
neurship and financial independence, and
give local women in business a platform
to mentor and inspire future female entre-
preneurs.
According to Tarman the Girls Going
Places conference is a high-energy fun
day that is designed to focus on the skills
and discipline necessary to have a suc-
cessful financial future whether in busi-
ness or in life. The girls take part in a
number of fun exercises that demonstrate
the trials and tribulations of becoming
financially responsible for their business
successes.
A game has been designed for the
program, titled Hot Company, somewhat
fashioned after Monopoly and LIFE, with
pitfalls and challenges of running a real
business entity; finding challenging and
thought-provoking solutions. There is a
Product in a Box challenge. Teams have
one hour to design a product from the
content of their box, make a business
plan and develop a marketing and sales
strategy. The girls also experience an
extremely meaningful meet and greet ses-
sion with women business owners in our
community. This allows the girls to ask
questions of these successful women and
involves the mentors in sharing knowl-
edge and encouragement to these young
women.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club
meets at 7 a.m. every Friday morning at
Beachview Steakhouse, 1100 Par View
Drive. If you would like further informa-
tion regarding the Sanibel Rotary or

CROW Case Of The Week:

Gopher Tortoise
by Brian Johnson
ome patients
stay at CROW
,d1 rfor an extraor-
dinarily long period
of time. Patient
S #08892, a gopher
tortoise from Cape
Coral, arrived on
blo cl April 1, 2008 and
was just released
this summer on
June 17, 2010. That's 808 days in resi-
dence.
She as a long timer, and she's a suc-
cess story," said Dr. Amber McNamara.
The tortoise, presumably hit by a car,
came to the clinic in woeful shape. She
had a punched ind fracture over her hip
with a blood clot, and fractures on her
upper carapace.
tShe did not want to move at all,
which was pretty understandable,r said
Dr. Amber. She had substantial deficits
in both legs."
Staff provided her with two types of
pain medication as well as antibiotics, and
swabbed her wounds with saline dressing.
Dr. Amber jumped in with an acupunc-
ture treatment on Day 2 to tAy to jump
start the flow of energy through her legs.
The gopher tortoise survived the first
week, and over the next two months her
wounds and fractures healed over. She
received a total of four acupuncture treat-
ments in April.


Tortoises feeding in ICU


"Compared to what we did when I
started here as a student, we have found
that employing acupuncture gets them
started on a path to recovery more quick-
ly," said Dr. Amber.
In addition, they placed her on a phys-
ical rehab program consisting of range of
motion exercises, acupressure, and walk-
ing on grass, gravel and up the ramp to
the Roberts Cage.
Through the summer and autumn of
2008 the tortoise continued to gain

thing happened.
"She became really dull, with dis-
charge from her nose, edema and
increased respiratory effort," said Dr.
Amber. "She looked awful, we really
thought we would lose her. She had
wounds on her elbows, so she may have
been bitten by fire ants. We still don't

months to come out of this depressed

35. You will be provided with detailed
directions and questions you find the
answers along the way. The route takes a
little over two hours. This year, start and
finish will be at the Timbers Restaurant,
703 Tarpon Bay Road. You may pre-
register and request a preferred start


time. All entrants will be able to see the
parade first. Entry forms will be available
from The Sanibel Cafe, Bailey's General
Store, American Legion Post 123 and
the Sanibel Grill/Timbers Restaurant.
Following the rally, the Sanibel Grill
(at Timbers Restaurant) will be open for
a post-rally party for everyone. Prizes will
be awarded for time and distance closest
to the race committee's target plus points
for answers to the questions, and for the
best decorated vehicles. There will also be
a 50/50 drawing.
Members of the business community,
co-workers, individuals, groups and fami-
lies can join in. Make your entry check
payable to the Sanibel-Captiva Optimist

Wolff's love of birding and aspirations
to become a lead environmental educator
eventually brought her to Sanibel.
"I'm a birder at heart, so it is so amaz-

the biggest challenges facing her at this
point. She's happy to be leading a sum-

the swing of things plans to "try out new
things and ideas.... add some 'Becky

main goal is to be worthy of the honor of
working at such an amazing refuge."

Beyond Petroleum And
Into Snappy Shrimp Week


Jamison Hayduk gets a warm hug from Erika Millstein, new lead educator at Sanibel Sea
School
by Evelyn Neill
You want to know one of the best things about being four or five or six years
old? Today is what matters. And today, there's no oil on the beach and it's
hot and the water is cool. You can bury your counselor in sand or do an
obstacle course or put on a mask and find a shell. Even "riding on the fish bus" is
a good thing when you're that young. So, I've come to the conclusion that Snappy
Shrimp Week at Sanibel Sea School is downright therapeutic for my oil-worry-wea-
ry self. And maybe it's good for you too.

Plant Smart:

Florida

Fiddlewood


This Florida fiddlewood has both ripe and
unripe fruit photos by Gerri Reaves
by Gerri Reaves
lorida fiddlewood (Citharexylum
fruticosum) gets its catchy com-
mon name because the strong
wood supposedly is desirable in con-
structing stringed musical instruments.
Plant experts disagree, however, on
whether the plant was actually harvested
for such a use.


In any case, this
native tree's value as
a low-maintenance
landscape plant,
butterfly attractor,
and food source for
wildlife argue against
cutting it down for
that purpose.
In coastal pine-
lands, Florida fiddle-
wood usually grows
to only shrub size,
but in hammocks it
might reach over 30
feet in height.
This tree with
dense evergreen foli-
age is usually multi-
branched, although it
sometimes develops
as a single-trunked
specimen. The shiny
green spatulate
leaves are five to
six inches long with Fiddlewood's ripene
notched or pointed
tips.
The tiny white tubular flowers are five-
lobed and fragrant. Both flowers and later
the fruit cluster at the leaf axils.
Flowers appear intermittently through-
out the year and attract butterflies. The
delicious honey that bees produce from
the flowers makes the plant a friend to
both beekeepers and humans.
The fleshy globular fruit of only one-
half inch in diameter is edible and sweet
but not palatable for humans. However,
the fruit is a desirable food source for
birds and other wildlife.


*d purple-black berries are a food source for birds and other wildlife


One of fiddlewood's most outstand-
ing ornamental features is the fruit's
color transformation from unripe shiny
orange, reds, or bronze shades to a rip-
ened glistening purple-black. Orange or
pinkish leaf stems and major veins also
add color.
Florida fiddlewood is highly drought-
and salt-tolerant once established, and it's
pest-resistant too.
Plant it in sun to partial shade. Use
it as a screening plant, hedge, or shade
tree. Pruning for shape is optional.


Propagate fiddlewood with seeds or
simply let the mother plant self-sow.

Students Learn Art Of Shellcrafting


The most popular student choice was to make snakes out of shells
hellcrafters from The Community House visited Debbie Riley's and Deanna
Evans' 4th grade classes at The Sanibel School before the summer vaca-
tion. The visit was a follow-up to the students' previous trip to Cayo Costa
on Captiva Cruises. While on Cayo Costa, the students found a live sea urchin in
addition to other live organisms in the grass flats and gathered broken shells on the
beach for donation to the Shellcrafters.


Another popular choice was to make
turtles
By showing some completed crafts,
the shellcraft volunteers demonstrated
how broken shells, sea urchins, and other
shells are used by crafters to make dif-
ferent items. The students then chose to
make necklaces, snakes, or turtles out of
shells provided by the volunteers.Q

Human Trafficking Awareness
Partnerships, Inc. (HTAP) will
host an event on July 19 from 7
to 9 p.m. featuring artwork created by
girls involved in the HTAP's Artreach
Program. This program educates girls
about the dangers of human traffick-
ing, the statistics and facts concerning
human trafficking and the occurrences
in Lee County. The girls, from varied
backgrounds, have created four canvas
wall hangings expressing their knowl-
edge and understanding of modern-day
slavery, especially as it potentially affects
their peer group.
The event will also feature select
vignettes from the play, Selling
Innocence that was researched, written
and performed by Cypress Lake Center
for the Arts 9th grade drama students.
A student involved in each project will
present a brief program about the paint-
ings and the play. HTAP plans to make
these projects available throughout Lee

One Step
Forward, Two
Steps Back
by J. Bruce Neill,
PhD
R recent media
coverage has
a H drawn atten-
tion to the fact that
bacteria are capable
of consuming crude
oil so, you might
ask, why don't we
release massive
quantities of it into the gulf for a feast of
monumental proportions?
It is indeed true that bacteria will con-
sume the massive amount of oil that is
pouring into the Gulf of Mexico. Because
the waters of the Gulf of Mexico are very
warm, they will do so very efficiently. The
rate of bacterial degradation is much more
rapid in warm water than in colder, more
northern waters. One step forward but
it's not that simple.
After a closer look at bacterial degrada-
tion and its ramifications, we end up tak-
ing two steps back.
When large amounts of organic matter
are present in the ocean, bacterial popula-
tions that consume that organic matter
grow rapidly and reach very high popula-
tion densities.
Like fish, mollusks, copepods, and
crustaceans, these marine bacteria breathe
dissolved oxygen from water, which is a
healthy part of ocean chemistry at normal
levels. The problem occurs when bacteria
reach such high population densities that
they extract all (or at least most) of the dis-
solved oxygen in the water they occupy.
Such areas of oxygen-depleted water are
known as hypoxic zones. Hypoxic zones
kill other creatures that need oxygen to
survive: the fish, copepods, crustaceans
and mollusks that now unsuccessfully
compete with the bacterial populations
for oxygen. Hypoxic zones are known as
dead zones, which are areas with no liv-
ing organisms. The bacterial breakdown
of the massive amounts of oil will create
huge dead zones in the waters of the Gulf
of Mexico. Take one step back.
Nitrogen, a crucial marine nutrient,
makes up between 0.1 2.0% of many
gulf crude oils by weight. When bacteria
break down and consume crude oil, they
release nitrogen from the oil into the sur-
rounding water, where microscopic plant
cells called phytoplankton rapidly take it
up. Phytoplankton densities are normally
limited by a scarcity of nitrogen in the
ocean, but when large amounts of nitro-
gen are available to phytoplankton, their
populations increase very rapidly. These
rapid population explosions are known as
phytoplankton blooms. Some phytoplank-
ton blooms produce toxins that kill marine
animals and cause significant human
health impacts. These are especially com-
mon in the Gulf of Mexico during the
summer and fall months. Take a second
step back.
To make matters worse, when a phy-
toplankton bloom eventually dies, the
individual cells sink and are consumed
by bacterial populations. This bacterial


decomposition consumes oxygen and
causes more dead zones, which brings
us back to step one. The dead zones kill
marine life and the bacteria release you
guessed it nitrogen; which of course, will
be taken up by phytoplankton. Do you
see the pattern emerging here?
So, if you hear the good news that
bacteria will take care of cleaning up the
oil spill, don't be lulled into complacency
by believing that all is fine and dandy.
Realize that the impacts of this event can
cascade through our oceans long after the
last beaches and birds are cleaned and the
cameras have moved on to another story.

Mixed Bag
Flats Fishing
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
l rarpon last
week could
S. A be found
S' anywhere from
Fort Myers Beach
all the way up to
SGasparilla Island.
The largest con-
centrations of fish
I found were gulf-
side. However, three to four hours after
sunrise, the bite was over.
Tarpon south of Redfish Pass fed
better on live threadfins either freelined
or fished under a float. The schools of
tarpon north of the pass were hungrier
for small crabs, either pass crabs or blue
crabs. The few tarpon I found in the bay
were from Cabbage Key to Foster's Point
on North Captiva and not responsive to
any baits pitched right in front of them.
I did see a few hook-ups in the bay but
the gulfside fish just seemed to be more
cooperative.
Redfish fishing on the higher tides was


a good bet. As long as the tide was high
and moving, they fed well. Mangrove
shorelines on Cayo Costa and North
Captiva were productive on both cut and
live baits pitched deep under the trees.
Redfish fishing has been getting better
and better every week with lots over the
slot now in the mix. Closer to home,
around the southern sound, there were
a few reds but not in the larger numbers
found in the middle to northern sound.
One of my favorite trout spots over
the last month has been the western side
of the power lines. It seems no matter
what the tide, if you find three to four
feet of water you can catch keeper size
trout. This area is mostly grass with sand
potholes and then drops into deeper
water close to the intercoastal. Small pin-
fish and shiners drifted under a popping
cork caught limits of trout just about any
time.
When the tide is in a lower phase I
like to fish closer to the no-wake buoy
line or nearer the intercoastal where the
water is a little deeper. On a higher tide
get right on top of the flat and throw into
the white visible sandholes. On light wind
days, drift fish this area, while on stronger
wind days, anchor up. When anchored
simply lift the anchor if the fish are not
biting and drift another 20 yards or so

THEUGREAT WMITE GRILL










23 BEERS ON TAP
2440 PLM fnIDe rD. saNIBeL (239)472-0212 (239)472-0323


Beach side tarpon were feeding better last week


before re-anchoring. This method lets you
cover almost as much water as drifting
until you locate the fish.
First thing in a morning or during
low light conditions, top water plugs also
work great here. A skitterwalk or a chug
bug will get smashed on the surface.
As the sun gets up higher a subsurface
mirrordine will do the trick. If there is a
lot of floating grass, try a weedless soft
plastic bait. Pretty much anything that is
the same size and colors as a greenback
shiner will get hit as that's the pattern the
fish are on.
If you are looking for mixed bag
action, any deeper grass flat in the sound
is worth fishing right now. I look for
feeding birds, either pelicans, gulls or cor-
morants in four to eight feet of water. A
good area to get started is anywhere from
Chino Island north to Demiere Key on
the outside of the north south sandbar.
Anchor up and pitch a few handfuls of
live shiners out every five to 10 minutes
and watch for fish to break the surface. I
like to cast with the shiners rigged freeline
and simply jig them back in slowly just
like you're fishing a jig. This method
keeps them from ending up in the grass
and the rising and falling of the shiner will
trigger the bite.
The variety of fish out on the flats
right now is awesome. Expect to catch
trout, ladyfish, bluefish, Spanish mack-
erel, blacktips and jacks. Keep a ladyfish
or too because it won't take long until


one of these fish you're bringing in to the
boat gets cut in two by a bigger shark.
Once this happens cast out a half a
ladyfish and hold on. Any kind of activity
quickly will bring in the sharks.
Now we are in the summer time pat-
tern of hot and humid conditions strong
afternoon thunderstorms become an
almost daily event. Early out and early in
become the best way you can avoid the
sizzling heat and generally the quick mov-
ing bad weather. These dangerous thun-
der storms often pack strong winds and
lots of lightning. Keep your eyes open
for building storms; they can be a scary
thing when out on the water and should
be respected.
Capt. Matt Mitchell moved to Sanibel
in 1980 and has fished local waters for
more than 25 years. He now lives in St.
James City and has worked as a back
country fishing guide for more than 10
years. If you have comments or ques-

Owners of seven island businesses, known as Merchants Who Care, gathered
at Three Crafty Ladies on June 22 to toast a recently-revised version of The
Wildlife Coloring Book. Sponsors of the project include Macintosh Books
& Paper, Nanny's Children's Shoppe, She Sells Sea Shells, Suncatchers' Dream,
Tarpon Bay Explorers, Three Crafty Ladies, and Toys Ahoy!
The Wildlife Coloring Book features cartoons created by Dave Horton in 2001
to depict, in a humorous way, guidelines for human interaction with the abundant and
approachable wildlife on Sanibel and Captiva.


Merchants Who Care
have banded together to
cover the expense of print-
ing The Wildlife Coloring
Book, which includes
sponsor ads and coupons.
Participants provide the
book to visitors free-of-
charge, so they will learn
how to act (and not to act)
toward wild animals.
The book is avail-
able at Lighthouse Cafe',
Macintosh Books & Paper,
Nanny's Children's Shoppe,
Over Easy Cafe', She Sells
Sea Shells, Suncatchers'
Dream, Three Crafty
Ladies, and Toys Ahoy!
Supporters of the color-
ing book recognize and
appreciate the synergism
of sponsoring/distribut-
ing educational coloring
books that showcase our
unique environmental assets
and encourage visitors
to respect and preserve
these resources. Recipients
develop loyalty toward par-
ticipating establishments as
well as learn the ethics of
interacting with wildlife.
Wild animals suffer less
stress when humans give
them their space rather
than harass them. And par-
ticipating businesses sustain

Public Preview
Of New Play
Contest Finalists
Theatre Conspiracy is adding a new
element to its new play contest
this year and inviting the public
to attend a preview party on Saturday,
July 17 and vote on which script will
win the company's annual contest. Now
in its 13th year, Theatre Conspiracy's
new play contest has grown to attract
hundreds of scripts from dozens of
countries around the world. "Last year
we received 487 scripts from play-
wrights in the United States, Canada
and Europe were submitted," said Bill
Taylor, the artistic director and founder
of Theatre Conspiracy. "This year we
should match that same amount of
entries but we're still sifting through the
stacks of scripts piled up in my office,"
said.
The new play preview party, a fun-
draiser for next season, will feature
readings from the top three scripts that
have been submitted. The evening will
start with a pre-show reception featuring
refreshments and hors d'oeuvres followed
by a scene reading from the first script
then a short intermission while the stage
is reset. The second reading will also
be followed by an intermission. At the
completion of the third scene the audi-
ence will have the opportunity to discuss
the scenes with Taylor and then vote for
their favorite script. The winning play will
be announced that night and produced in
October.
Tickets are $50 and will include
refreshments during the intermissions
and a voucher good for one ticket to a
performance of the winning play in

Around The Islands With Anne
Temporary Tattoos Are Fun;
July Sales Are In Full Swing
by Anne Mitchell
lina Daubenspeck of Head
Sto Toes by Tina is just
I back from a major hair, skin -
a and nail trade show in Orlando,
where she was on the lookout for _
new products and ones that relate OhI
Especially to her island clientele.
She's excited about Shellac, the
latest in nail polish from Creative ...
Nail Design, which lasts for at least .
14 days without chipping. It dries
to a mirror finish in no time and contains no odorous
formaldehyde or other nail-damaging ingredients.
While a regular manicure at Head to Toes by Tina is
$25 and lasts about a week, the Shellac costs $45 and
lasts about two weeks.
"It's the ultimate polish we nail techs have been wait- Tina Daubenspeck with
ing for," observed Daubenspeck, who has been in the some of the nail polish
in for selections in her salon
business for 15
years. She has strict
personal rules about
treating people's
nails. She said while
cutting people's
cuticles is banned C.
in Florida, it is still
practiced and can
lead to infections
and other problems.
She's happy to
explain to clients the An example of a tempo- Some of the many temporary glit-
best ways to deal rary glitter tattoo by Tina ter tattoo designs available at
with their nails and Daubenspeck Head to Toes by Tina
skin.
Glitter temporary tattoos are another
product she thinks will be popular on
Sanibel among all ages and both sexes.
Those who prefer not to have a real tattoo
but want to give it a whirl can try one on 5e
for size and style at little cost and no per-
manent mark.
The tattoos come in many colors and
dozens of designs including always-popular .
sea life motifs such as seahorses (The -
Sanibel School's mascot), sharks, turtles,
frogs, starfish and dragonflies. There are
also patriotic designs which can be done
in red, white and blue. Show off your true
colors at this weekend's Independence Day
events.
The tattoos are $5 to $10 each depend-
ing on size and take just a few minutes to
apply. With care they can last a week to Stars and Stripes ice cream from
10 days. Daubenspeck will also do these Pinocchio's
tattoos at children's and adults' parties.
Blinc is another of her recent "finds." It's a line of mascara and eyeliner that won't
run, snudge, clump or flake. The mascara forms "tubes" around your lashes and slides
off when you're ready to remove it, without the use of harsh solvents. Each product is
$20 and lasts about six months.
Head to Toes by Tina is in The Village Shops, 2340 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, just
before the Palm Ridge Road turnoff, phone 395-2400.
It's that time of year again the much awaited blow-out shoe sale at Comfort by
Design in the Lime Tree Center off Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. It will begin Saturday,
July 3 at 10 a.m. and continue most of the summer.
Discounts will be 15 to 75 percent on quality shoes and sandals by top makers such
as Ecco, Mephisto and Birkenstock. This represents huge savings that local folks wait
all year to reap. Don't worry if you can't get there on the first day, new sale merchan-
dise is brought out on a regular basis.
If you thought you'd missed the storewide 50 percent off sale at Why Knot and
Why Knot Relax, here's another chance. Starting Friday, July 2 and running all
month, everything in the store is half price.
Designer labels such as Flax, Free People, Habitat and the exclusive Why Knot
Relax line are in breathable, comfortable fabrics that are perfect for island living.

Double Your
Fun At The
Schoolhouse
by Di Saggau
T wo excit-
S. | ing musical
J i l revues are
.playing at The
S Herb Strauss
C .- Schoolhouse
Theater on Sanibel.
S The 70s Show
Just opened, and
it's another highly
entertaining show
that whisks the audience back to the
marvelous music of the '70s. You can't
go wrong with songs like I'll Be There,
Stayin' Alive, Proud Mary, SOS,
Dancing Queen, Get Down Tonight,
I Will Survive, and YMCA. And that's
just a sampling of the 30 songs of an
era gone by that you'll enjoy revisiting.
The talented cast consists of Lexie
Dorsett, Gina Gloria, Kevin Todd
Murphy, Geoffrey Nelson and Samantha
Rotella. Musical direction is by Sarah
Lawing with Miguel Cintron on drums.
The show is directed by Victor Legarreta
with choreography by Bobby Logue. I
saw the show last Saturday evening and
there was a good size crowd to join in the
fun as the energetic cast took us through
so many memories. Chances are the
songs will take you back exactly to where
you were in the '70s. The disco songs
brought back great memories for me.


Gina Gloria, Lexie Dorsett and Samantha
Rotella


Geoffrey Nelson, Samantha Rotella, Gina Gloria, Sarah Lawing, Miguel Cintron, Kevin


Murphy and Lexie Dorsett

The cast works well together. Most
songs are a collaboration of all five, but
solo parts are also worked in so that
everyone has their chance to shine. Their
voices and personalities truly do justice to
the great music of the '70s. With all the
fancy dance moves, you'd think the cast
might slow down for the second act, but
they come out with gusto and even more
flashy movements. It was quite amazing.
The costumes and outrageous wigs also
add to the overall feel of the show. By


photos by Nick Adams Photography
the close of the show the audience was
standing up and singing along.
The 70s Show plays Wednesdays
and Saturdays through August 14. If you
missed the other show 80s to the Max,
it runs Tuesdays and Thursdays through
August 12. Showtime is 7 p.m. for
both shows. For tickets call 472-6862.

is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way on

To a blend of faded color.

From unsettled immigrants,
To those who willingly contribute.

To a chance of making good.

From vigorous, bustling millions,

With vast dreams.

These poems are from Eugene

available from iUniverse.com. Eighteen
pages are devoted to Sanibel Island.
Mahoney and his wife Rosemary vis-
ited here fifteen times in as many

Wisconsin and Marquette University.
He served in Korea and Japan as sec-
retary to General Garrison Coverdale.
He later taught, trained teachers and
became administrator in Milwaukee

away July 20, 2007 and was given

married to another, to the clandestine
affair that shocked Chicago society.
Discussion begins promptly at 2 p.m.

Black Pelicans
by Christine
Lemmon
s Tt was spring
in Florida
,and I was as
much a part of the
spring day as the
roseate spoonbills
flying overhead and
the hot pink peri-
winkles covering
the ground and the
pale pink coquina
shells burying themselves beneath the
sand. I was shy too, like those coquina
shells."- excerpt from the book Portion
of the Sea
When my boys were little, we would
sit by the shore at the Lighthouse Beach
and I would teach them their colors by
way of the coquina shells. Each time one
of the tiny shells surfaced in the sand,
my boys had to call out its color before
it slipped back under. My son asked why
the little shells disappear so quickly and I
remember telling him they are shy, and
we went on to discuss shyness. I went
home that morning and added to the first
line of the novel I was writing: I was shy
too, like those coquina shells.
I get an abundance of inspiration
while wading in the Gulf of Mexico with
my children or watching sunsets with my
family. It's why all three of my novels
take place here on Sanibel where I live.
Recently, my husband and I went for a
weekend to New York City and I won-
dered whether fresh ideas might come
to me while in the city. But looking up
at those skyscrapers when the tallest
structure I'm used to seeing is Sanibel's
Lighthouse, and gazing into those store
windows at the colorful designer hand-
bags when the most colorful objects I
notice back home are seashells, I told my
husband, I'm not getting ideas for writ-
ing, but maybe I could get a new purse
and some clothes instead."
But then I passed a kiosk of a major
New York newspaper and its enormously
bold headline reached out and grabbed
me: Welcome to Florida! The doom and
gloom of that headline, related to the oil
spill, stopped me in my tracks. I had been
with my children at our beach a few days
ago playing waist-high in the water and
there was no oil. The headline made it
look as if all of Florida was seeing oil, and
if you visit, oil is what you get.
The truth is, most of Florida has not
seen oil and it is my hope that we never
will. In the wake of this oil tragedy, I
appreciate life and nature like never
before while at the same time deeply
mourn and feel angry for what is hap-
pening in the waters where the oil has
reached the loss of life right on down to
the mollusks living unseen and unheard
within the intricate interior kingdoms of
the seashells.

press@islandsunnews.com


Since the spill, it is my son who keeps
inquiring about the wellbeing of these
slimy little beings because he has a heart
for all creatures great and small. Last
summer he spotted someone taking a live
shell from the water. I stood watching,
ready to count how many live ones she
planned to take, but my son put an end
to it after the first, walking up to the lady,
telling her it was wrong, taking a live shell
from the water. I told my boy he was a
hero for having spoken out, and for hav-
ing saved if even a single, miniscule form
of life. There is as much to learn from a
child as there is from the sea.
Back in New York we took a nar-


rated bus tour of the city, but with those
Welcome to Florida headlines on every
corner, all I could think of was the
oil. And when people heard we were
Floridians, they gave us condolences,
asked whether they should cancel travel
plans, and one asked whether we had
seen black pelicans. "No," I told them.
"Our coastline remains unspoiled. There
is no oil where we live." And the last time
I noticed, the roseate spoonbills, periwin-
kles and coquina shells were all still pink!
As the bus passed by the New York
Public Library, the narrator pointed out
two marble lions guarding the entrance
and told us the lions were named

ISLAND SUN JULY 2, 2010 35
Patience and Fortitude at a difficult time
in New York's history when those virtues
were needed the most. Of course I scrib-
bled this all down and my husband asked,
"Getting ideas for a book, dear?" No,
darling, but it had me thinking if there
were lions (or maybe sea lions) stand-
ing guard on the causeway bridge, what
would we name them? Truth and Hope
came to mind but I'm sure everyone has
their own thoughts as to what Sanibel

Book Review
The Doctor
Is In (sane)
by Priscilla Friedersdorf
Dr. Dave Hepburn, who writes
a weekly column, Dr Dave for
the Island Sun and The River
Weekly, has recently published a book
the Doctor Is In (sane)." He subtitles it
Indispensable Advice from Dr Dave
and bases the chapters on his medical
practice and advice which is generously
laced with humor.
Hepburn first relates something
bizarre, hilarious, outrageous and then
"BAM" now that I have your attention,
here is my diagnosis and my advice; a
"carrot and stick" approach to medical
practice, e.g. speak with levity but carry a
big tongue depresser. And it works, you
remember the vignettes he relates with
more clarity than listlessly turning the
pages of a medical manual filled with sci-
entific terms and ailments.
Although Dr. Dave does not subscribe
to the theory that "laughter is the best
medicine," this book will at least lighten
your mood and alleviate your anxiety until
your condition improves. The index gives
a ready reference allowing you to browse
through your particular medical interests
without searching through the entire
book.
The chapters are short and succinct,
as is his weekly column in the newspa-
pers. In the introduction he admits to a
wanderlust which has often taken him
out of the confines of his office and into
the wider less developed world to treat
patients.
In his chapter Kicking Death in the
Head Hepburn deplores the supersizedd
sedentary society" which has led to
obesity. He prescribes a dog and "...ten
thousand steps every day" in addition to
an exercise program, sitting less than 7.5
hours per day and using a waist-hip ratio
as a predictor of having "the Big Mac
Attack."
We are reminded that average life
expectancy in 1900 was 48 years and
now is 76 in America (80 in Japan) with
projections anticipating 125 for later
generations. And Hepburn continues his
speculation on longevity with his light-
hearted mix of sage advice, ending with a
quote from a Dr. Ivan Popov, "Wouldn't
it be great if we all died young... late in
life." We are warned, "...the big three risk
factors for cardiac disease are smoking,
high blood pressure, and high choles-
terol."
A special chapter, On the Wild Side,
compares how personality and attitude
can affect mental outlook but also physi-
cal well-being. He quotes a psychiatrist,
...personality style only becomes a dis-
order when it is taken to the extreme.
Then it begins to interfere with day-to-day
functioning."
Hepburn's cover photo shows him to
be a handsome man; his patients have
no doubt noted his resemblance to actor
George Clooney, and he often slyly refers
to the famous movie star; writing "...
if you have any doubt about a lump or
bump, be sure to have it checked out by
a professional such as George Clooney.

Miracle Start Second-Half Red Hot;
Big Fireworks Show Saturday
by Ed Frank
after a rough season's first half when the Fort Myers
Miracle finished 28-42, they began the second half last
weekend with a three-game sweep of the Charlotte
Stone Crabs, the first-half champions of the Florida State
League South Division.
The 3-1, 7-6 and 13-inning 5-4 wins jumped started the
Miracle into first place in the early going of the second half in the
tough South Division as this week began.
Local baseball fans can celebrate the Miracle's recent success
tomorrow, Saturday, at the annual fireworks show that will follow
the 7:05 p.m. game against St. Lucie at Hammond Stadium.
The Saturday night game will conclude a three-game series with St. Lucie that
began Thursday.
The Miracle also was honored this week when it was announced that outfielder Ben
Revere, a Florida State League All-Star last season, and current Miracle pitcher Liam
Hendriks have been selected to participate in the 12th annual All-Star Futures Game
July 11 in Anaheim, California.
Revere and Hendriks join the likes of former Miracle players, now major leaguers
Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Jason Kubel and Francisco Liriano who previously partici-
pated in a Futures Game.
Hendriks, from Perth, Australia, is a top pitcher in the Minnesota Twins organiza-
tion. He leads the Miracle with a 5-2 record and a low 1.86 ERA. The 21-year-old
right-hander joined the Miracle in May after starting the year at Low A Beloit.
Revere, now in his first season with Double A New Britain, was a first-round draft
selection of the Twins in 2007. He is currently hitting .307 with the Rock Cats.
Selection to the Futures Game is made by the Major League Baseball Scouting
Bureau and the 30 Major League baseball teams.
Rumors Abound that Twins May Trade for Former Cy-Young Winner
Cliff Lee
The baseball rumor mill was buzzing last week that the Minnesota Twins were
courting left-hander Cliff Lee to bolster their pitching corps for the stretch run.
Lee was the National League 2008 Cy Young Winner with the Philadelphia Phillies
who traded the hurler to Seattle last year. Sidelined for the start of this season, Lee
has gone 6-3 with a league best 2.39 ERA since returning from the DL. He leads the
American League in four complete games.

A free agent at the end of this season, the Twins could likely sign the lefty to a
long-term deal now that their coffers are enriched as a result of their new stadium,
Target Field.
If the Twins are successful getting Lee, look for the trade to include their talented
catcher Wilson Ramos who is stymied behind All-Star catcher Joe Mauer.
Groundbreaking Set for new Red Sox Stadium
Construction will begin soon for the new spring training home of the Boston Red
Sox on Daniels Parkway in Fort Myers.
The ceremonial groundbreaking is scheduled for August 27 to coincide with the
Red Sox playing the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg in the hopes that Red Sox
officials will attend.
The facility is scheduled to be completed for the 2012 spring training season. The
Red Sox will return to the City of Palms Park for the final time in 2011.0

Sanibel Recreation Department
Recognizes Volunteer Of The Month
The City of Sanibel Recreation Department recognizes Volunteer of the Month
Avice Lindstrom.
Lindstrom spends her winters on Sanibel and has been volunteering with
the youth programming at the recreation center for the past two years. When
not on Sanibel, she and her family reside in the seaside community of Duxbury,
Massachusetts. Her husband was a commercial lobsterman and fisherman while she
was an elementary school teacher.
After retiring from a 30-year career as an elementary school teacher, she missed
working with children but not the responsibilities of a classroom and paperwork.
Through volunteering, Lindstrom still has the opportunity to work with children and
enjoy their enthusiasm and love for learning. She said, "My favorite part of being a
volunteer is having the ability to go on field trips with the children and watch as they
are exposed to new experiences and discover new things."
Volunteer opportunities are now available. For information on joining your friends
and neighbors who serve as recreation center volunteers call 472-0345.
The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Daily,
weekly, semi-annual and annual memberships are available. For more information visit

Josh and Doug at Rickwood Field, Birmingham

by Doug and Josh Congress
edited by Ed Frank
The first week of Chapter Two in our journey to visit every Major League
ball park is complete Sanibel to Denver with stops along the way in
Birmingham, Memphis and Oklahoma City.
Our 8,000-mile venture this summer will take us to 10 Major League stadiums in
the western United States, a venture that will complement the 20 stadiums we took in
last summer from Kansas City eastward.
Of course, baseball is the primary objective, but feasting is a close second.
In Birmingham, we visited the oldest professional baseball park in the United States,
Rickwood Field. Built in 1910 (two years before Boston's historic Fenway Park), it had
been the home of the Black Barons of the Negro League. Today, the field is used for
high school tournaments and some annual throwback games.
Of course, no trip to Memphis would be complete without a stop at Graceland
where the temperature must have been 1,001 degrees with 99.999 percent humid-
ity. That didn't stop us from dining at two famous rib joints Interstate BBQ and the
Rendezvous.
The next day it was onward to Oklahoma City where we checked into an ancient,
flea-bitten hotel where I quickly canceled the room and called my administrative assis-
tant (my wife) and requested she find us a more hospitable option. She quickly found
us a wonderful Sheraton just minutes away from Bricktown Ballpark, where the Triple
A Oklahoma City Redbirds were playing the New Orleans Zephyrs.
Bricktown Ballpark may not have been part of our Major League tour, but it is the
real deal. This $34-million stadium built in 1998 is nicer than half of the big league
parks we have seen. Josh said he liked it better than the new $1.5-billion Yankee
Stadium.
Its classic red brick exterior blends perfectly with neighboring buildings, and the
13,000-seat park provides perfect vantage from every location. We bought Row 4
seats behind home plate for a total of $26. In the bigs, this would not buy you a third

We cheered the home team to a 6-2

us a room in a Fairfield Inn just off the
interstate.
The next day was a long drive to
Denver filled with vast miles of green
prairies, dirt roads, hay fields and aban-
doned farm houses all the reasons we
completely opposed flying. To pass the
time, Josh finished two 400-page books.
After 33 hours and 2,100 miles of
driving, alas we arrived in Denver.


We started the next day with a brisk
two-mile walk to Coors Field for a 10
a.m. tour. Coors Field, located in down-
town Denver, was opened in 1995 and
was constructed using 1.4 million bricks.
Because it is a mile above sea level, the
game balls are kept in a humidor to
counter the low oxygen level of the high
altitude.
Coors Field is a top notch facility, but
this Florida boy was gasping for breath
when we trudged to the third level of the
facility. We loved the open concourses
that allow you to order food while not
missing a pitch. The field is impeccable
with rock and water formations in center
field and a manual scoreboard in right
field that adds a classic touch.
Because it was a night game, we had
time in the afternoon to locate a well-
known greasy spoon known as Duffy's
where we consumed half-pound burgers
smothered with onions, mushrooms,
Swiss cheese and bacon along with a
large order of Frings French fries and
onion rings. I failed to mention we started
the meal with orders of atomic chicken
wings.
One hour after the meal, I had to
make my first and second visits to the
Tums bottle.
But this was far from our only food
adventure of the day. Colorado is known
for a peculiar dish known as Rocky
Mountain Oysters. Perhaps you know
their content.
Back at Coors Field for a night game
between the Rockies and the Milwaukee
Brewers, we abided by our credo to taste
the local cuisine. For $7.50 we ordered
a batch from a food vendor who smirked


and stated, "You are he first to order
them today." That was not the type of
recommendation we were looking for.
Hastily we made our way to our seats
along with a beer chaser for me and a
coke chaser for Josh.
Verdict? Well, the good news was they
were not spherically shaped, rather they
were thinly sliced (sounds painful), a bit
thicker than potato chips and deep fried.
The bottom line: Rocky Mountain
Oysters should not be consumed by
humans. They are really bad. They are
chewy, strong flavored and smell lousy.
We both ate one and then I immediately
had Josh take them to a far away gar-
bage can.
Aside from the oysters, we had a great
time cheering the Rockies to a 2-0 win
over the Brewers. Three cheers for Coors
Field.
Next Week: Week Two begins with
Day Two in Denver.#

Good rules
.J w question this
week:
You are playing
golf and hit this
beautiful shot right
onto the green. As
you walk up to the
green, a dog comes running out of one of
the houses and grabs your ball and takes
off! Now what?


ISLAND SUN JULY 2, 2010 43
1. This falls into Rule 18-1 "Ball at
rest, moved."
2. The rule reads: "If a ball at rest is
moved by an outside agency, there is no
penalty and the ball must be replaced."
3. What is an outside agency?
4. According to the definitions of the
Rules of Golf: In stroke play an outside
agency is any agency other than either
the competitor's side, any caddy of the
side, any ball played by the side at the
hole being played or any equipment of
the side.
So, the dog is an outside agency and
you may replace a ball on the green (Fido
isn't giving your ball back) as near as you
can figure to where it was and play on
with no penalty.#

Getting Casual
by Cindy Malszycki
easy-going
as they
appear,
Casual decorat-
ing schemes don't
dejust fall into place.
There's a world of
difference between
the casual room
that has evolved
haphazardly and
one that is well decorated. Good casual
decorating takes into account both com-
fort and style.
Starting with comfort factor, furniture
should look inviting. But more impor-
tantly, it must feel good. Deep-seated
sofas and overstuffed arm chairs with
ottomans send the message, "Come, sit
here." Certain fabrics and materials lend
themselves to the casual style. Leather is
an excellent choice, as are chenilles and
textured fabrics. Save your elegant florals
and silks for your formal room.
Refer to nature for ideas. Natural
materials are inherently pleasing to the


senses and always at home in a casual
setting. Exposed wood beams, hard wood
floors, and rustic tile give a room an easy,
relaxed feel. Add an area rug to soften
the look and absorb sound. Bring the
outdoors inside with a few houseplants. If
you're not much of a green thumb, con-
sider some of the authentic-looking per-
manent botanicals. A texturing paint or
wall covering will add depth and warmth
to your casual setting.
Asymmetrical furniture arrangements
are perfect in an informal room. Pull your
furniture away from the walls and experi-
ment with angular arrangements. Avoid
the predictable look of sets of matching
end tables and coffee tables.
Casual design applies to wall and
tabletop accessories as well. Accessory
pieces should be in odd numbers and of
varying sizes and shapes.
When looking for a respite from the
hustle and hustle of your daily routine,
your casually decorated room will offer a
relaxing retreat.

Insurance Tip:
Watch For
Your Renewals
by Marge Meek
after many
customers
inquired
about not receiving
a wind renewal over
S the last month, it
was apparent there
was a problem larg-
er than too much
mail or people
moving between
winter and summer homes. Citizens did
respond last week that the problem has
been fixed. The issue was that some,
not all, of wind renewals from mid-April
onward had not been mailed. To date
no official notification has been given,
but informally the cause was given as a
systems issue.
Whatever the reason, if your wind
policy renews during the next couple of
months, watch for your renewal and if
you don't receive it, call your agent. The
invoices are available online along with
the declaration page The agent's first
notification that the renewal hasn't been
paid is a cancellation notice that comes
out on the effective date. There is a
15-day grace period for you to get your
payment in, so it is important to open
any mail from Citizen, and your agent
can help by notifying you about the can-
cellation notice as well.
Another government insurance issue
can affect your insurance coverage. Since
the beginning of the year, federal fund-
ing for the flood program has not been
passed by Congress. There have been
two extensions, but as of this date, there
is no extension in place, so no new flood
insurance can be issued. Home closings
with mortgages have been continuing by
transferring the active flood policy from
the seller to the buyer.
Again, watch your renewals because
during this period without an extension of
the program and without passage of the
flood bill, insurance providers cannot send
out your flood renewals. This means that
when the funding is passed, all the renew-
als that are being held up will be released.
Flood invoices are sent out a couple of
months in advance, which should give
you plenty of time to pay your bill. Flood
insurance does give you a 30-day grace
period after the effective date.
Your insurance agent has been kept
informed of what is happening and what
options are available, so contact her/him.
There are many media stories going on
about the ramifications of Congress not
approving the flood bill, but your agent
gets the latest information directly from
FEMA and can give you an accurate
update.
Marge Meek is a local Sanibel-
Captiva insurance agent, who can be
reached at mmeek@rosierinsurance.

LEAPP Event Calls Attention To
World Elder Abuse Prevention Day

I- JwA~aru.P~i !


Dan Daniels of Department of Children and Families Adult Protective Services and Dotty
St. Amand of the Dubin Alzheimer's Resource Center
See Elder Abuse Prevention Partnership (LEAPP) held a public gathering on
Tuesday, June 15 to commemorate World Elder Abuse Prevention Day. The
event was held near the Uncommon Friends Fountain in Centennial Park in
downtown Fort Myers.
The program gave an overview of the importance of recognizing and address-
ing the issue of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. During the ceremony, LEAPP
members read letters and proclamations of support from Congressman Connie Mack,
Governor Charlie Crist, Lee County commissioners and City of Fort Myers Mayor
Randy Henderson.


Helen Fallert and Marilyn Gregory of the Area Agency on Aging of Southwest Florida
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is held each year on June 15. This designated
day serves as a call-to-action for individuals, organizations, and communities to raise
awareness about elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
Approximately 24 percent of Lee County residents are in the age range of 65-plus
and 12 percent are 75-plus. As older adults experience age-related illnesses and
changes in physical abilities, the risk for isolation and potential self-neglect increases.
These individuals may also be vulnerable to exploitation and abuse as their social sup-
port network slowly deteriorates. According to the National Council on Elder Abuse
(NCEA) 2005 Facts Sheet, "for every one case of elder abuse, neglect, exploitation, or
self-neglect reported to authorities, about five more go unreported."
Lee Elder Abuse Prevention Partnership (LEAPP) is a newly established coalition
committed to creating community partnerships that effectively promote awareness of
abuse, neglect, and exploitation of older adults in Lee County. The coalition's mis-
sion is dedicated to providing education, services, advocacy and support to vulnerable
adults.
LEAPP is a collaborative effort with participating agencies and leaders including:
Lee County Sheriff's Office, Department of Children and Families Adult Protective
Services, United Way of Lee, Hendry, & Glades County, Area Agency on Aging

Nursing School
Approved At
Edison College
The Edison State College Board of
Trustees unanimously approved
the School of Nursing within
the college. The new school provides
students and faculty a greater sense of
camaraderie and also provides more
visibility and oversight for the variety of
nursing programs at ESC.
Programs offered include:
Associate Degree Nursing (RN) -
enrollment for fall is expected to be more
than 500 students
Advanced Placement Nursing (LPN
to RN) Current enrollment is 60 stu-
dents and 60 new students will begin in
the fall
RN to BSN (Baccalaureate comple-
tion degree program) Current enroll-
ment is 130 students and the school
expects to add 70-100 in the fall.
Certified Nursing Assistant -
Certificate training program.
"This new organizational structure
positions the college to continue to devel-
op the baccalaureate mission," said Dr.
Mary Lewis, director of nursing.
Edison State nursing students remain


above the state and national averages
consistently (Edison 93 percent, state
88 percent) on the state licensure exam.
Edison State College has consistently
ranked 13-15 percent in the number of
nursing graduates in the country for com-
munity and state colleges, and student
interest in pursuing the nursing profession
continues to grow.
In 2008, 248 students graduated from
the program, 260 students in 2009, and
it is anticipated that Edison will gradu-
ate over 300 nurses in 2010. In addi-
tion, student enrollment for the Nursing
Associates degree will surpass 650
students in 2011 and more than 200 stu-
dents in the RN to BSN program.
In July 2010, a new 58,000 square
foot nursing annex will be completed.
This addition will consist of a large audi-
torium and medical museum on the first
floor and a simulation hospital on the sec-
ond floor. The implementation of simula-
tion on this large scale offers opportunity
for instructional design changes. These
changes will offer interdisciplinary train-
ing opportunities and hospital employee
integration for clinical and documentation
training.
The Nursing program is accredited by
the NLNAC (National League of Nursing
Accrediting Commission).
Edison State College serves more than
20,000 students in five counties with
campuses in Lee, Collier and Charlotte,
and a center serving Hendry/Glades.
Many classes are available online at www.

Grace Robinson shows off her surfing skills


From page 20
Beyond Petroleum
And Into Snappy
Shrimp Week
Sanibel Sea School kicked off the
2010 summer camp season with Snappy
Shrimp Week for the younger crowd:
Thirty-four little four- to six-year-olds
attended the week-long session. And
if you see a very young Sanibel Sea
School graduate at Bailey's or the Lazy
Flamingo, ask them: What causes waves?
(wind) What's the funny name for the
group that shrimps belong to? (The four-
year-olds may need a prompt crust....
crustaceans!) But you know, the facts
will come with time. What really mat-
ters is that some of them looked in the
ocean for the first time with a mask on.
It matters that they met a group of col-
lege age kids who are dedicated to the
ocean. It matters that they played outside
on the beach. It matters that they stood
up on a surfboard and slid across the
water. That's good enough for today.
Because today the beach is lovely, the
ocean is blue and it's a fine day to fall in
love with the ocean. And when they are
older, they can worry about oil at oil spill
conferences like Doc Bruce and test the
water, and listen to hearings, and worry
about relief wells and all that stuff.0
