Dealers Give CPR
Training Manikin
To Rec Center
On Tuesday, July 20, the Sanibel
Recreation Center received a
donation of a Resusci Anne
CPR training manikin from the
National Automotive Dealers Charitable
Foundation and the Florida Dealers
Association.
In presenting the training manikin,
which is essential for cardiopulmonary
resuscitation training, Neale Kuperman,
NADA director said, "If the right kind of
treatment can be given to a heart attack
victim within seconds after he or she is
stricken, the chances are good that the
life can be saved. CPR training teaches
a person how to keep the heart beating
while waiting for professional help to
arrive."
The Sanibel Recreation Center holds
CPR/AED, First Aid and Lifeguard cer-


tification courses throughout the year.
Other safety programs held at the Sanibel
Recreation Center include American Red
Cross Water Safety Instructor Course,


"If the right kind of treatment
can be given to a heart
attack victim within seconds
after he or she is stricken,
the chances are good that
the life can be saved..."


American Red Cross Babysitter Training
and Pet First Aid classes. In the upcoming
year, the goal is to train over 300 staff
and citizens in life saving skills.
For over 30 years, through the
NADA Foundation, dealers have contrib-
uted nearly $10 million to communities
throughout the nation.,

How It Really Isn't Fair
by Barbara Joy Cooley, President, Committee of the Islands
B y now, just about every resident of Lee County has heard
about how unfair it is that our estuary's waters have
received the lion's share of polluted water releases from
Lake Okeechobee whenever the lake reaches a certain level.
And our estuary is starved of fresh water during droughts.
But until now, there has never been one place where just
about all the inequities that lead to this unfair burden are delin-
eated.
Recently, James Evans of the city of Sanibel's Natural
Resources Department and Rae Ann Wessel, the Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation's natural resources policy director, took
on the task of delineating those inequities. They did so at the request of Mick Denham,
the vice mayor of Sanibel.
Denham gave me a copy of their excellent, but technical, document. Now I am
going to summarize the work of these two scientists for you.
Basically, the inequities fall into two categories:
1. High flows, or what happens when there is a lot of rain, and
2. Low flows, what happens when there isn't enough rain.
High Flows
What happens during and after high flows is the most dramatic and noticeable to
even the untrained eye. Because the Army Corps of Engineers can only send excess
lake water either to the east, to the smaller St. Lucie estuary, or to the west, to our
larger Caloosahatchee estuary, we receive up to 70 percent of the unwanted, excess
dirty lake water in our lovely estuary.
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), which makes the deci-
sions about how all this water is managed, seems to care about protecting the lake
ecosystem during high flows. They try to protect the aquatic plants in the lake and the
apple snails around the lake. But mysteriously, the SFWMD does not seem to care too
much about the oysters, sea grasses, and fisheries of the estuaries to the west and east.
Also, far more important to the SFWMD than the ecosystems of the estuaries are
the interests of agricultural operations, whom we'll call "Ag." Ag could be asked by the
SFWMD to store their own excess water during high flows, but they aren't. Instead,
they're allowed to send their excess water into the publicly funded Water Conservation
Areas, filling them up so that they cannot accept the excess lake water, which is then
sent you guessed it into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries.
The SFWMD also allows Ag to pump its excess water into canals. When the canals
fill up, this water is then pumped back into the lake, exacerbating the problem of high
water in the lake, which means yet more lake water is sent into the estuaries.
Lawsuits Stand In The Way
While it is physically and theoretically possible to send excess water to the south, as
Mother Nature did originally, we now have laws and lawsuits standing in the way. Why
there have been no laws and lawsuits to stop excess water from going east and west,
where Mother Nature did not intend for it to go (for the most part), is a question that
goes unanswered.
One law says that the Everglades National Park can only receive water that con-
tains no more than 10 parts per billion (ppb) of phosphorus. That's great for the
Everglades, but the ecosystems of the estuaries also cannot bear high nutrient levels
(nitrogen and phosphorus from the lake are the nutrients that together can limit the
production of sea life in the estuary). Yet no law is being applied to protect them.
The Water Conservation Areas were supposed to be used to clean the excess lake
water so that it could legally be sent south. But instead, those areas are filled up during
high flows by Ag's excess water.
Laws protecting the lake's endangered snail kite and the glades' Cape Sable seaside
sparrow are observed, and therefore excess water is not allowed into their habitats; but
curiously again, the endangered smalltooth sawfish and its critical habitat in our waters,
as well as the West Indian manatee, are ignored when the SFWMD and the Army
Corps make their decisions about where to send water during high flows. The U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service would have to explain why the law is applied to protect some
endangered species, but not others.
More water could be sent out through canals to the southeast, but that affects the
water tables in the Ag area. Once again, Ag does not take the hit but the estuaries to
the east and west do.
Lawsuits have resulted in stopping water flows to the south, into the Miccosukee
lands, although Mother Nature originally sent that water south. Sure, the Miccosukees
do not like the quality of that water coming out of the lake, but neither do the ecosys-
tems of the estuaries.
Litigation has also kept water from going east into urban areas, where there are lots
of people and therefore lots of voters.
Low Flows
Now that we've gone over how our estuaries are mistreated during high flows, let's
take a look at the abuse that they endure during low flows, or times when there is not
enough rain.
Evans and Wessel stated the problem succinctly when they wrote that the "deep-
rooted and entrenched policy of the SFWMD" penalizes natural systems like our
estuaries by benefiting water users who get permits, a policy that "sacrifices the public
crop (sea grass, oysters, shrimp, fish and crabs) by allocating the public water resources
for the benefit of private users, i.e., municipal water supply and agricultural crops.


Wait just a minute here isn't the whole idea of "permitting" to protect the envi-
ronment? That's how we think and operate on Sanibel, but evidently that is not the
driving motivation of the SFWMD. Instead, its policies and decisions routinely cut off
water for natural systems like our estuaries while those who have "permits" suffer no
cutback at all. That's right; 100 percent of their demands are met while nature takes
all the hits.
That hurts our estuary by increasing salinity levels to the point where freshwater
grasses and fish larvae die.
Inexplicably, the SFWMD renews permits and issues new permits despite the
fact that its knows there isn't enough water. This policy was aptly nicknamed by the
SFWMD's governing board: "no farmer left behind."
Infrastructure Woefully Inadequate
There is a policy, called Minimum Flow and Levels (MFL), that is supposed to pro-
tect the Caloosahatchee estuary. But it has been violated many times since its incep-
tion in 2001. The infrastructure planned to make the MFL more workable is really
woefully inadequate, and hasn't been built yet.
Also during times of low flow, instead of allowing the water in the Caloosahatchee
to trickle on down its natural path into the estuary, the SFWMD steals the water by
shutting the lock at Ortona, and letting our water flow back into the lake instead. Why?
To benefit Ag.
Can all of these inequities be resolved by implementing new policies? Yes they can,
and Evans and Wessell have explained how. That will be the subject of future articles
that I'll present to you, but let me just say this in closing:
The environment is our economy in Southwest Florida. But there is enormous eco-
nomic inequity exercised by the SFWMD. Taxpayers on the west coast pay the same
amount as those elsewhere in south Florida for the management of all this water. Yet
the basis for our economy is not only ignored by the SFWMD policies, it is damaged
so that the economy of Ag and the urban east coast will suffer no harm.
And that's how it really isn't fair.
If you have comments about the Lake 0 releases, the Committee of the Islands
would like to hear from you; email us at coti@coti.org. You can also review past

ST ook but don't touch." That's
the instruction given to
L approximately 200 people
who have volunteered for the City of
Sanibel's Coastal Watch program which
is part of the city's emergency manage-
ment plan.
Coastal Watch was initiated as a result
of BP's Deep Horizon oil well disaster
in the Gulf of Mexico a little over three
months ago which released millions of
gallons of oil into the gulf. Although the
well has been capped, it has not been
plugged and the released oil still remains
an environmental threat to Florida, not
to mention the impact on the $60 billion
tourist market. The oil sheet remains 300
miles north of Sanibel but the city is tak-
ing no chances.
Coastal Watch volunteers will patrol
the island beaches in the event the oil
spill threatens our shores. This reporter,
a volunteer, went through the city's train-
ing, testing and orientation program
last week which was conducted by city
officials, police and fire personnel and

Shell Museum
Training Program
Captivates Kids
ast fall, several Sanibel School fifth
and sixth grade students attended
he Shell Museum's Junior Docent
training program.
Over the course of three weeks they
took part in a structured curriculum,
spending six hours learning about mol-
lusks, discovering that mollusks are inver-
tebrates with soft bodies covered by a
shell of one or more parts. But the quest
for new knowledge didn't stop there. In
order to provide live tank demonstrations
in the Children's Learning Lab, they
needed to know where different species
of mollusks live, what they eat (and what
eats them), and if and how they move
from one location to another.
Madelyn La Bar, Danny Young, Emily
Minoui, Rachel Wexler, Alexis Councilor
and Isaac Bender completed the train-
ing program. During the course of the
year, these junior docents served as camp
counselors, decorated the museum's
Fourth of July float, represented the
museum in the parade, helped put up
decorations for Under The Sea, the
Museum's annual fundraiser, and provided
live tank demonstrations in the Children's
Learning Lab. Not only did museum with
programs, the students were able to fulfill
their community service requirement.


Isaac Bender
Over 200 hours were logged, with
Emily leading the group with over 80
hours and Isaac Bender contributing over
23 hours.
The museum's public program spe-
cialist, Diane Orvis Thomas, praised the
students' efforts. "Their assistance really
makes a difference as we prepare for
major events," she said. "Their work
in the Children's Learning Lab is really
special as children learn well when new
information is shared by a peer. This pro-
gram really lives out the educational mis-
sion of the museum and hopefully even
influences career decisions and future
adult volunteerism," added Thomas.

Emily Minoui
Twelve-year-old Emily's infatuation
with the shell museum began when her
class went there on a field trip. It was
during that visit she first became aware of
the fact that a living creature is responsi-
ble for making a shell. In fact, before that
she thought that shells were made out of
sand. Two years ago she increased her
knowledge even further by attending the
museum's cartoon animation camp led by
cartoonist Dave Horton.
"Camp was so much fun. Shells were
interesting and I realized how much there
was to learn about them. That led to my
decision to complete my community ser-
vice hours at the museum," she said. "I

love teaching. It is so much fun watching
people's expressions as I take the mol-
lusks out of the tank and they see a live
animal with a foot that comes popping
out. The funniest thing that happened
was when a scallop shell squirted a five-
year-old boy in the face and he started
laughing."
Emily went on to say, "When I com-
pleted the required 30 community service
hours I didn't want to stop because teach-
ing is a joy." Maybe that accounts for the
fact that on her museum days she is often
the very first person to arrive at work.
Isaac Bender's first experience with
the museum was two years ago when he
attended the museum's Video Production
Camp. "What got me excited about shells
was the chance to design my own video
and figuring out what kind of information
to put in the video so I could teach other
kids what I was learning," Isaac said.
"After camp was over I wanted to
learn more about mollusks like how they
act and how they live." he said. "The
Learning Lab is cool because I get to
teach other kids by letting them touch,
feel and respond."
Unlike Emily, who has lived her whole
life in Florida, Isaac has also called Illinois,
Connecticut and Michigan home. "I like
everything in nature like trees, animals,
and birds but the beach and shells are my
favorite," he said.

Service organizations signs on the causeway


After several months' absence, a new sign with the logo of Zonta International
(ZI) has joined the signs for other island service clubs on the board which
greets thousands of visitors and residents coming to Sanibel every week.
An earlier sign had endured numerous hardships including damage by Hurricane


ISLAND SUN AUGUST 6, 2010 9
Charley, fading from the sun and inevitable aging. The new sign conforms to ZI regu-
lations for color and wording and features reflective tape to make it easy to see at
night.
The sign was created by FastSigns of Fort Myers and installed by Kiwanian Ed
Ridlehoover, husband of Zonta board member Lynn Ridlehoover, who said, "Ed is our
Z-man of the week."
While men are certainly welcome to join Zonta clubs, the local club has no official
male members. Z-men are club members' husbands and partners who willingly volun-
teer when their special talents are needed heavy lifting, parking duty, and occasional
handyman tasks.
The Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva is proud to be a member of the island group of
service organizations Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, Optimists and American Legion all
appearing on the causeway welcoming board.#

any environmental impact with wildlife or
vegetation. Volunteers are not qualified
to handle the oil or affected wildlife due
to the toxic nature of the substance. The
city has contractors standing by for quick
mobilization to protect Sanibel should oil
be spotted.
According to City Manager Judie
Zimomra, the chance of the oil reaching
Sanibel shores is highly unlikely based
on all forecasts of its movement. The
Coastal Watch program would not be
activated unless oil comes within 75 miles
of Sanibel.
"It probably will never happen but we
want to be ready if it does. We learned
a lot about preparedness and response
with Hurricane Charley," Zimomra said,
and we're putting that knowledge to work
now.

Police Department is the emergency

manager for the city. Murray said the
emergency plan is a partnership between
police, fire and J.N. "Ding" Darling
Wildlife Refuge (a federal agency). He
added that 67 percent of the island is
owned by the federal government and
therefore the wildlife sanctuary is a key
element in the emergency plan.
Paul Tritaik, refuge manager, said the
refuge has been taking baseline measure-
ments in the waters around Sanibel so
they can measure the impact of any spill
if it reaches here. "These waters are the
cleanest of anywhere in the gulf," he said.
He went on to say that the refuge will
continue to work with the city.
The City of Sanibel won many
awards for its planning and response to
Hurricane Charley in 2004 and has a
reputation for its proactive approach.
Major Murray said it was likely that
there will be continuing training of the
Coastal Watch volunteers since they are
now an integral part of the city's emer-
gency management plan. Coastal watch-
ers were issued brightly colored T-shirts
and hats so they will be readily identifiable
on the beach. The city has divided the
island into zones that the volunteers will
patrol if they are activated.
Even though the beaches here are
pristine, local hotels have received cancel-
lations based on apprehension about the
oil spill. The local chamber of commerce,
the Lee County Visitor and Convention
Bureau and the State of Florida have
been conducting a massive communica-
tion campaign to deflect concern about
the oil. More than 2,200 closings, advi-
sories or notices were issued by state
and local authorities for upper gulf coast
beaches during the three months since
the spill.#

Bayside Owners
Push For Speedy
Dock Decision
by Anne Mitchell
Small group of bayside property
owners are "bearing the full bur-
den of protecting the seagrasses"
by not being allowed to have docks,
their attorney Steve Hartsell stated at
the Sanibel City Council meeting on
Tuesday.
He said it's needless, because "85 per-
cent of the seagrass is gone" as a result
of Lake Okeechobee releases. Hartsell
represents seven property owners who
claim the city has "taken" their property
without compensation by banning docks
for them, even though dozens of bayside
docks already exist.
Hartsell said 15 of 16 waterfront
properties west of Dixie Beach Boulevard
have built docks since the ban. "That
doesn't include the dock the city built for
itself with four slips, including one for
Natural Resources."
The council, at the suggestion of City
Attorney Ken Cuyler, had asked the plan-
ning commission to draft an ordinance
lifting the 1983 ban from Woodring Point
to the Sanibel Lighthouse.
On Tuesday, Cuyler sought more
input from the council, which agreed
unanimously to keep the ordinance on its
current path through the planning com-
mission to the city council. Cuyler said he
had also consulted an outside law firm for
further feedback on legal aspects of the
case.
Cuyler called a halt to discussions
several weeks ago when commissioners
wanted to add various conditions. Some
voiced misgivings about an action that
could result in 60 more docks in that
area.

"I know that Mr. Hartsell's clients are
not happy that I stopped the process,
Cuyler said.
Faced with the possibility of a lawsuit
if they don't lift the ban, council members
voiced their feelings.
Mayor Kevin Ruane said, "It seems
we did something wrong; it seems hypo-
critical. This just tastes wrong, it feels
wrong.
Councilman Peter Pappas said he'd
like to see an expeditious restoration of
the owners' right to have a dock.
Councilman Jim Jennings said docks
could be built in those locations without
harming the seagrasses.
And Councilman Marty Harrity said
while personal property rights are fore-
most with him, he "can't make a decision
today."
Vice Mayor Mick Denham said a
public hearing was needed to resolve the
issue.

Council To Discuss
'Missing Map' Case Next Month
by Anne Mitchell
anibel Mayor Kevin Ruane told the city council on Tuesday that he has asked
staff to provide more information regarding resident Steve Maxwell's assertion
that city maps did and do exist despite sworn statements to the contrary by
city officials.
Ruane said he'd like to address Maxwell's complaints at the next council meeting
September 11.
"At our last meeting Mr. Maxwell came up with an awful lot of information and
some compelling statements. It is my intention to make a very comprehensive
response. I have asked staff to get more information for me," Ruane told the council.
Two weeks earlier, Maxwell produced copies of a city map that city officials -
including the city attorney have maintained don't exist for the past eight years.
Maxwell, who lives on Raintree Place, off Island Inn Road, has claimed since 2002
that Raintree Place was shown in city maps to have an extended private roadway ease-
ment connecting to Twin Ponds. City officials said it was a cul-de-sac.
The city allowed a home to be built too close to the easement, Maxwell maintains,
then said it was a cul-de-sac to avoid being sued by the homeowner.
Maxwell sued the city and planner Ken Pfalzer but after investigation, the case was
dropped by the state attorney's office due to insufficient evidence.:

No Warranty Included
In City Hall Roof Bid
by Anne Mitchell
he $233,000 contract for a new metal roof at Sanibel City Hall does not
include a warranty.
Mayor Kevin Ruane told the city council on Tuesday he wants to learn more
before moving forward with the project with the low bidder, Advanced Roofing and
Sheet Metal.
Public Works Director Gates Castle said, "They will not warranty a roof of the type
we were planning, which is a painted Galvalume, within half a mile of a saltwater
body. The only one they will warranty is a painted aluminum. This changes everything.
"I certainly would not recommend having a roof with no warranty," Castle added.
Two weeks earlier, some council members had questioned the high cost of the job
and the fact that, in these tough economic times, only two firms bid on it. Council
asked staff at that time to look into the possibility of rebidding the job.4

Sex Trafficking A Danger To
Young Residents Of Lee County


Richard Johnson speaking to students and parents
When Richard Johnson, as a representative of The Sanibel School, attended
the Lee County School Board's Citizen Advisory Committee meeting in
May, he saw excerpts of a play presented by students at Cypress Lake
Center for the Arts. He was impressed by what he learned and realized that the
work had been initiated and sponsored by a Sanibel-based non-profit, Human
Trafficking Awareness Partnerships (HTAP).
He contacted Nola Theiss of Sanibel, executive director of HTAP, and together
with BIG ARTS and Zonta, they planned a presentation of excerpts of the play and a
showing of artwork produced by local students which was held on July 19.
At the program, Johnson explained his interest and support of this educational
work and Theiss reported on the widespread instances of this crime as well as local
cases. Nori Ann Reed, co-chair of the Zonta Anti-Trafficking Team, spoke about her
experience as a Navy captain visiting foreign ports and seeing young girls involved in
sex trafficking. She is now an active member of the Lee County Human Trafficking
Task Force and understands that this is a local crime as well. Gari Lewis, a Zonta
volunteer and art instructor talked about her experience working with the girls who
painted the canvases.

Noia ineiss speaking to me group; artworK Dy local stuaenrs is in me oacKgrouna
Two students, Jackie Benetiz and Caroline Farrell from Cypress Lake Center
for the Arts, presented monologues of actual victims and a short film was shown of
excerpts of the play they wrote and produced. They also discussed what they learned
from their involvement in this project. Theiss discussed plans for continuing the
Artreach projects and the need for funding for both of these projects.
The US government reports that sex trafficking accounts for 83 percent of this
modern form of slavery in the U.S. Thirty-two percent of these victims are American
children. Formerly called "child prostitutes" a misnomer since the law says that no
child under the age of 18 can choose to prostitute herself these children are now
identified as "domestic minor sex trafficking victims."
Runaways are the most vulnerable. In Florida, 68 percent of all runaways are 15
or younger and most are female. These children often fall under the influence of older
men and women who trick them into sex trafficking. This group of young American
citizens has been overlooked or misidentified previously and when discovered, they
are treated like criminals or delinquents, rather than victims. Since the average age
of entry into the sex trade in this country is between 12 and 14, it is important that
young people learn about the dangers of trafficking at an early age.
Until recently, few people realized that sex trafficking affects Sanibel as well as
other parts of Southwest Florida. Due to a proactive police team and intense edu-
cational and awareness efforts, 28 victims of severe trafficking have been identified
since 2007 in Lee County, a 78 percent rise over the previous two years. These cases
increasingly involve young American children.
For more information or to make donations toward the continuation of this work,
please contact Theiss at 395-2635 or HTAP, PO Box 1113, Sanibel, FL 33957.#

This year's event features a one-day competition for anglers who catch and release
snook, redfish, sea trout and other species. All fishing must take place on Lee County
waterways. Captains' meeting, weigh-in and awards take place in Matlacha.
The first-place winner will receive the fully rigged Hobie Adventure kayak, which
has a retail value exceeding $2,000. The second-place winner will receive $500,
based on 50 participants. The third-place finisher gets $300; the fourth-place angler
earns $150; and the fifth-place finisher wins $50.
"It's significant to have a kayak of this caliber donated as our grand prize this year,"
said Josh Harvel, tournament committee chairman who also is a Hobie Fishing Team
member and Lee County Parks & Recreation volunteer. "The Adventure is one of the
best-performing kayaks on the water today. I'm very excited that Hobie and Estero
River Outfitters have come together with the Calusa Blueway to help promote the
great sport of kayak fishing."
The November 5 captains' meeting will include a reception sponsored by Angler's
Inn and Bert's Bar. The digital weigh-in, a seminar with Kayak Charters' Dominick
Greco and the awards presentation will be November 6 at Matlacha Park with a cel-
ebration afterward for anglers and kayakers at The Sun & The Moon Inn, Matlacha.
Tournament proceeds benefit the Great Calusa Blueway and the Society for Ethical
Ecotourism, which is hosting the event with assistance from Lee County Parks &
Recreation volunteers. Sponsors include Hobie, Bending Branches, Estero River
Outfitters, West Marine, Sea Tow, Angler's Inn, Bert's Bar, The Sun & The Moon Inn,
Kayak Excursions, Kayak Charters and other local businesses.

Mote Marine Laboratory
Returns Sea Turtle To Tarpon Bay


Mote's Andrea Bowman readies a Kemp's ridley sea turtle for release after it was rescued
during the January 2010 cold-stunning event
While Monday July 26 was a typical hot summer afternoon for most of us, it
was anything but ordinary for the young sea turtle who was returned to the
warm waters of Tarpon Bay in the J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife
Refuge on Sanibel Island.
When the turtle was rescued in January those waters were much colder as a result
of the record low temperatures much of Florida experienced this winter. The juvenile
Kemp's ridley (Lepidochelys kempii) is a member of a critically endangered species


Bowman returns the turtle to the waters of Tarpon Bay, where it was rescued in January

of sea turtles and was saved from a chilly fate by the concerned folks at Tarpon Bay
Explorers, CROW, and Mote Marine Aquarium Laboratory in Sarasota.
On January 7, the Explorers pulled the lethargic turtle from the icy waters and
brought it to CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife). The turtle arrived at
Mote Marine Aquarium on January 17 to complete its rehabilitation in Mote's Sea
Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital. After over six months of care, the turtle made the long
journey back to Sanibel.
Mote's Andrea Bowman gently placed the turtle in the water at Tarpon Bay as the
Explorers' staff and guests watched.
It was a happy ending to the cold-stunning event that affected over 4,500 sea
turtles throughout the state of Florida. Thirteen turtles were rescued here on Sanibel
with the help of Tarpon Bay Explorers, CROW and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation.0

Snowy Plover Nesting Update
s of Friday, July 30, there are two chicks from Nest #14 and five fledglings.
Nest #15, found last week, had two eggs but both were predated this week.
All the nests are on Sanibel's east end.
Snowy plovers nest on the beach and SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation) coordinates the monitoring of snowy plover nesting on Sanibel. Protective
exclosures are staked around snowy plover nests. Please do not enter the staked
exclosures and keep dogs out as well. When snowy plovers are not moving, they are
extremely well camouflaged. If a snowy plover is flushed from its nest, it takes very
little time for the hot sun to damage the eggs.
The snowy plover is a state-listed, threatened species on Sanibel. The most recent
estimate indicates that around 200 pairs of snowy plovers remain along the west coast
of Florida, from the Panhandle through Cape Sable. Snowy plover nesting season runs
through August, and they can nest two or three times in one season.
For more information, visit SCCF's website: http://sccf.org/content/80/Snowy-
Plover-Project.aspx.4


Take Care When Photographing
Nesting Snowy Plovers
by Joel Caouette, SCCF Snowy Plover Technician
It has come to my attention that there have been some issues with people photo-
graphing the snowy plover chicks on the beach this season.
First and foremost we must remember that the snowy plover is listed as threat-
ened by the state of Florida and any disturbance of nesting or preventable harassment
to chicks or adults can lead to prosecution of a misdemeanor crime in the state. The
following guidelines should be strictly followed when viewing or photographing these
birds.
When photographing a bird on a nest:
Make a thorough check of the area that there are no avian or mammalian preda-
tors nearby that may be attracted to human presence or scent.
The photographer should remain behind the staked off area. No part of the body,
camera, or lens should go beyond the string.
Photographing at the nest should not exceed one hour. After that the photogra-
pher should leave the nest area and wait at least three hours before returning.
When photographing birds away from nests or birds with broods:
Care should be taken not to "push" the birds around the beach. Birds need to be
able to forage/rest without disturbance beyond the usual beach traffic.
Plover chicks when born weigh only 6.5 grams and must constantly forage to
gain an average of 1.5 grams per day to reach their target weight of 45 grams in a
matter of four weeks. Any time taken away from foraging is detrimental to their sur-
vival.
The photographer should instead approach no closer than 100 feet and wait for
the birds to approach them for closer shots.
It is very important that these guidelines be strictly followed to ensure the safety and
success of the plover chicks. In years past we have had very successful fledge rates,
fledging 14 plovers in 2009. This year's numbers are on the lower side where we
have only fledged five birds with the possibility of seven by the end of the summer.
The condition of the plovers is a precarious one. We have had 15 nests this season
with only nine of them hatching. Those nine nests have hatched 23 chicks of which
only seven remain as of July 28. With roughly a 21.5 percent fledge rate for 2010
you can see how difficult it is to fledge these chicks.
As viewers and photographers of wildlife, we must stick to the above-mentioned
criteria. If these guidelines are adhered to we can ensure the enjoyment of beautiful
photographs as well as the survival of this species for years to come.#

SCCF Gives Tour
Of RECON Water
Quality Sensors
Sanibel City Councilman Jim
Jennings and U.S. Senator Bill
Nelson's Regional Director, Diana
McGee, had the opportunity to see one
of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation's (SCCF) RECON water
quality sensors firsthand on Thursday,
July 29. SCCF Lab Technician AJ
Martignette explained the sensor's capa-
bilities while SCCF Natural Resource
Policy Director Rae Ann Wessel talked
about RECON and water quantity moni-
toring.
RECON stands for River, Estuary and
Coastal Observing Network. SCCF main-
tains a system of six water quality sensor
arrays that span almost 90 miles, from
Lake Okeechobee to the Gulf of Mexico.
Water conditions are sent hourly from
each array to SCCF's website (www.
recon.sccf.org), giving other scientific
organizations, educators, policy mak-
ers and concerned citizens rapid, easy
access to water quality data. The data
helps them make informed decisions in
the management of the health of the
Caloosahatchee River, Pine Island Sound,
San Carlos Bay, Estero Bay Aquatic
Preserve, Tarpon Bay and Charlotte
Harbor. You can find the latest near real-
time RECON data at www.recon.sccf.

Try Pass Fishing
When Bay Water
Is Too Warm
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
T ast week I
., I spent the
S' I majority of
my time on the
Water fishing the
N passes. Blind Pass,
Redfish Pass and
Captiva Pass all
held good numbers
of gamefish. The
strong moving tides made for good
action on several species of fish. The
main players were snook, redfish and
trout.
Learning the techniques to fish the
passes takes a little time but pays off big
once you have it down. Many local guides
make their living in our local passes just
about year round. In most of the tourna-
ments I fish, the winning fish come out of
these passes.
Like any other type of fishing it's
knowing where in the pass and what


stage of the tide the fish feed.
With our water temperature so high
the passes have the most waterflow and
are generally cooler than the shallow bay.
Most of the snook, redfish and trout are
caught around the edges of the passes.
Sit back and watch how the other boats
are drifting and what areas they are work-
ing before you jump right in the crowd
and mess it up for everyone.
Drop offs and ledges can often be
identified by the tide rips. The seawall
off South Seas Island Resort has always
been, and remains, one of the hottest
places to catch snook in our area. After a
few drifts you can generally narrow down
where the fish are and not have to drift
the entire edge of the pass.
Positioning the boat while drifting to
keep the lines in the strike zone is the
key. When the tide is really screaming
through the pass it's best to keep your
motor running and have one person
operate the boat while others fish. You
will have to bump the boat in and out of
gear to keep the drift nice and smooth
and not get pushed in or out too far.
Drifting lets you cover more ground and
gives your baits the natural presentation
of being swept on the tide. While drifting,
keep your baits uptide and let them drag
at the same speed the boat is moving on

the tide. If you start fishing down current
you will lose a lot of rigs in the bottom.
Live bait fishing is the most effective
method. Pinfish and grunts are at the top
of the list. Use enough weight so that
the bait will bounce the bottom; this will
vary depending on how fast the tide is
moving. It could be anything from a small
split shot up to a 12-ounce egg sinker. My
usual pass rig consists of a spinning rod
rigged with 20# braid, a 30# fluorocar-
bon leader, a 3/0 hook and a large split
shot crimped on the leader about two
feet above the hook. I like to hook the
baits in the mouth as they stay down bet-
ter in the fast moving tide.
Certain areas in the passes are some-
times better to anchor and fish. The
docks and stumps on the north side of
Redfish Pass and the stumps and rips on
the north side of Captiva Pass can be
fished either way. When anchored, throw
your bait upcurrent and let it drift back in
the tide. At the end of the drift on a fast
moving tide the bait will come up from
the bottom and skip on top. Fishing from
the anchor does not keep your baits in
the water as long but some days can be
more effective.


On either an incoming or outgoing
tide there are fish to be caught in all our
local passes. It's a matter of putting in
your time and working out which pass
and which drift is better on that stage of
the tide. Some days one pass will just be
better than the others, Luckily, within 10
miles we have three passes that all hold
good numbers of fish.
Pass fishing has paid off for me all
week with pretty consistent action and a
few really good fish. Within an hour one
morning this week we caught a 33-inch
redfish and a dozen or so snook up to 30
inches along with losing a snook in the
15- to 20-pound range.

teria this year included a focus on regional efforts, innovation, and collaboration. "We
were looking for projects that had regional scopes, especially ones that could reach
into underserved communities such as those in Hendry and Glades counties. We also
wanted to see newly developed pilot projects where innovation and collaboration
between several community partners was evident."
Thanks to the large grant, Harry Chapin Food Bank will now be able to implement
its Mobile Distribution/SNAP Outreach Program. The mobile distribution component
of this program will enable Harry Chapin to distribute meat, dairy, and fresh produce
from a mobile food pantry to areas with smaller food pantries that do not have the
capacity to handle perishable foods. They will also be able to increase their reach into
areas such as Clewiston, Moore Haven, Immokalee, Lehigh, and parts of Charlotte
and Cape Coral.
The SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Outreach component of
the program will provide a part-time SNAP Outreach worker who will help clients to
access food stamp benefits via two laptop computers with wireless access at each dis-
tribution site. SNAP helps low-income families to access healthy food that is not other-
wise available to those with a very limited budget. Many individuals are not even aware
that they are eligible to receive these benefits, which then remain unclaimed, so SNAP
provides an important educational service as well.

Plant Smart:
Varnish Leaf
by Gerri Reaves
Varnish leaf's (Dodonaea viscosa)
most notable feature is its winged
fruit, which on first glance resem-
bles shimmery flowers.
The seed pods with three (and occa-
sionally four) rounded papery wings
undergo several color transitions that
endow the plant with ornamental value.
They emerge pale green, turn yellow-
green, then shades of pink and red, and
eventually turn pale brown.
By comparison, the actual flowers are
somewhat inconspicuous and greenish
yellow, emerging in terminal clusters.
This fast-growing native shrub or small
tree can reach up to 15 feet tall, although
usually only six to 10 feet. It is typically
multi-trunked but can be trained to a
single trunk. The bark is brown.
The three- to six-inch leaves vary from
spatula-shaped, to elliptical or oblong,
varying in texture and shape according to
habitat. They are sticky with under-curled
edges.
The common name derives from
the shiny coating of resin on the leaves
that give them a varnished appearance.
The resin also makes this evergreen tree
highly drought tolerant.
This hardy plant's natural habitat is
dunes, pinelands, and hammocks. It will
tolerate sandy or rocky soils, wind, or salt
spray and is generally pest resistant.

WRDA and Caloosahatchee Reservoir Project
Last Thursday the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee approved
a $6 billion Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) that authorizes 300 nation-
wide water projects. While the bill includes much needed funding for Kissimmee River
restoration, it does not include three critical Everglades projects; the Caloosahatchee
C43 reservoir, the C- 11 canal to restore flows to Florida Bay and the Biscayne Bay
Coastal Wetlands that would restore freshwater flows to Biscayne National Park.
For the past seven years the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) has
been working to get the C43 reservoir project on a WRDA bill. This project would
provide storage to help address excess flows to the Caloosahatchee estuary. Without
this project included in this year's WRDA bill it will be at least two years at a minimum
before there's another chance to get the project authorized. Although designed to be
passed every two years, the last two WRDA bills were authorized in 2007 and 2000.
So the timing of this bill is important.
This year, Republican leadership pressured its members to abandon "earmarks."
Despite past support of the C43 project, Representatives Tom Rooney and Connie
Mack pulled their support of the C43 project and it was dropped from the list.
However, WRDA is not an earmark, it is a process for authorizing projects only.
Projects then are eligible for and have to get appropriation funding before construction
can begin.
SCCF had this conversation on the Hill this spring at the Everglades Summit when
representatives met with congressional offices asking for their support of the reservoir.
In the work on this bill, Chairman James Oberstar argued that WRDA projects should
not be considered earmarks stating, "Never in the history of this committee have these
projects at the corps of engineers been considered earmarks,"
The House bill, HR 5892 faces an uphill battle and as yet there is no companion
bill in the Senate. SCCF encourages you to call Representatives Rooney (DC: 202-
225-5792) and Mack (DC: 202-225-2536, local: 573-5837) to express your disap-
pointment in their rescinding support for the C43 project. Remind them that WRDA
projects are just authorizations, not earmarks and ask them to reconsider and support

Eleventh Annual Grouper Grab
he annual Grouper Grab dates have been changed from August to October
22-24, due in part to back to school preparation, lobster season, potential
bad weather, heat and uncertainties concerning the oil spill.
The new October date should welcome more teams, spectators and possibly better
weather, said Kristi Riley, event planner.
Nervous Nellie's on Fort Myers Beach is the new home of the Grouper Grab. It
allows for all aspects of the tournament to take place in one place. It is located just
over the Fort Myers Beach bridge (bayside) at 1131 First Street.
Besides food, drinks and live entertainment, the location allows for rooftop views of
the weigh-in from the second floor open air bar, Ugly's. Spectators will also be able to
watch teams weigh in on the ground level and browse vendors who will be set up in
the courtyard.
Sponsors are needed.

Captiva Cruises Takes Summer
Recreation Campers To Cayo Costa


Captiva Cruises' Richard Finkel (front) with rec campers and counselors
The City of Sanibel's Summer Recreation campers were treated to a fun filled
afternoon aboard Captiva Cruises' motor catamaran. The destination was
Cayo Costa State Park. On the way out, campers got an up-close look at a
dolphin surfing and jumping alongside the boat.
Captain Sean McGarry and Educator Richard Finkel of Captiva Cruises guided the


campers and their
counselors to the
state park where they
used seining nets in
the shallow sea grass
beds to observe some
of the critters that
inhabit the back bay
estuary. They col-
lected shells and, of
course, had a blast
cooling off in the
clear waters of Cayo
Costa.

Theatre Conspiracy's Upcoming

Season Announced; Prices Lowered
T theatre Conspiracy has announce its 2010-11 season of plays at the Foulds
Theatre in Fort Myers.
"For this upcoming year we have lowered our ticket prices and moved
our matinee performances to Sundays," says Bill Taylor, producing artistic director.
"Affordable entertainment has always been important to us. I think this will keep live
theatre as an option for people during this economic downturn. I am very excited
about what we have coming up.
"Once again we have put together a season that covers a wide range of theatre for
our audiences to enjoy. We have a world premiere, one Florida premiere and three
Southwest Florida premieres. There will be plenty of laughs and excitement this year."
The line-up includes:
Searching For Eden: The Diaries Of Adam And Eve, a romantic comedy by
James Still. August 20 through September 4 at 8 p.m. and August 29 at 2 p.m.
More than a hundred years after Mark Twain wrote his own short stories about
Adam and Eve, James Still combines those stories for Act One of Searching for
Eden, and then imagines Adam and Eve in the present day for Act Two to create this
original and contemporary play about the world's first love story.
Cynthia's Lament, a comedy by Paul J. Lawrence, October 8-23 at 8 p.m. and
October 17 at 2 p.m.
Winner of the annual New Play Contest, this play tells the story of wildly successful
romance novelist, Cynthia Silver, who seems to have it all. In fact, she even has a little
extra, namely a penis. The truth is she is the fabrication of Taylor, a talented writer
who couldn't get published. As time has passed Taylor has grown tired of restraints
Cynthia has put on him artistically and has dreams of making it as a writer without
wearing a dress.
Dead Man's Cell Phone, a comedy by Sarah Ruhl, December 3-18 at 8 p.m. and
December 5 at 2 p.m.
When Jean answers the cell phone of the corpse at the next table, she unwittingly
embarks on a quirky odyssey that takes her from grief to the black market to the after-
life. With unfailing empathy, she sets the dead man's bizarre life to rights and on the
way resurrects her own.
Frank Lloyd Wright, written and performed by Will Stutts, January 7-22 at 8 p.m.
and January 16 at 2 p.m.
Will Stutts, who thrilled audiences last year with his performance as Edgar Allan
Poe, returns to Southwest Florida in this intriguing and fascinating one-man show.

32 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 6, 2010

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF AUGUST 9, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Avoid
adding to the tension around you. Even a well-
meant reaction against something you perceive
as unfair could be misunderstood. Let things
calm down, and then talk about it.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It's a good
time for romance for unattached Bovines, and
a good time for reinforcing the bonds between
partners. Children's needs are important during
the latter part of the week.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A com-
pliment from a surprising source sends you
wafting way up into the clouds, where -- sorry
to say -- your view of what's going on is
obscured. Come on down and face some real-
ity.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Even
a family-loving person like you sometimes
can feel you're at the end of the line with
contentious kinfolk. But things can work out.
Remember that it's better to talk than walk.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) A job-related
move might hold more positive surprises than
you'd expected. Go into it with confidence,
and look for all the advantages it offers. Then
decide what you'll do with what you find.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Driving yourself too hard to get something
done on a deadline you set up can backfire.
Ease into a more realistic finish date, and add
more breaks to your work schedule.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Your sense of humor can brighten any dark
period, and your laughter can dispel those gray
clouds swirling around you. The weekend pres-
ents a surprising but welcome change.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Be careful about the words you use, especially
in touchy situations. The old Chinese saying


that the spoken word is silver, but the unspoken
gold could well apply here.
SAGITIARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Some facts could emerge to
shed light on unresolved past problems. What
you learn also might help explain why a once-
warm relationship suddenly cooled down.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Don't let your pride get in the way of
checking into what could be a great new oppor-
tunity. Get the facts first, and worry about pro-
cedure and protocol later.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
A health problem in the family might have
other relatives assuming that, as before, you'll
take over the health-care duties. Surprise them
and insist they share in the caretaking.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A
series of changes can be unsettling, but in the
long run, it can pay off with new perspectives
on what you plan to do. Keep your mind open
to the possibilities that might well lie ahead.

Long Story Short
by Christine
Lemmon
ear
Grandma,
h c I'll call
him Rafael de
SI Espana. He trans-
forms Spanish into
more than grammar
off the pages of a
book. He brings it to
life for me and takes
the language barrier away. As he speaks
to me slowly and without shouting, I feel
beyond culture shock and am no longer
homesick. I love this country now that
I have Rafael as my friend. This sounds
dramatic, Grandma, but I know you love
reading romance. And I don't mind liv-
ing it!" -excerpt from the book Sanibel
Scribbles
After my grandfather died, my grand-
mother Betty Jann remained migratory,
spending winters on Sanibel and sum-
mers in Saugatuck, Michigan where she
nested in a cottage behind my family's
ice-cream shop. An eccentric bird wear-
ing dark sunglasses and red and purple
silk dresses from the Orient, my grand-
mother would sit on the pink radiator of
our shop and chat with me as I worked.
After work I would go to her cottage and
because I was a teenager and she a night
owl, we would stay awake all hours listen-
ing to Elvis Presley while burning sandal-
wood incense. I loved settling beside her
on the twin bed as we ate Kit Kat bars
and talked about the Nora Roberts novels
she was reading, and about life!
My sister and I spent our high school
and college spring breaks visiting our
grandma on Sanibel and we discovered
how lonely she was with nothing but her
seashell projects and romance novels to
keep her company. And so I began writ-
ing her letters not ordinary "how are
you doing? I'm doing fine" letters, but
juicy ones about the boys I was dating
- those I liked and didn't. I left nothing


Book Discussion

Group To Meet
R leaders are
invited to
Sediscuss Deaf
Sentence by David
Lodge, the focus
of the Wednesday
August 25 book
discussion meet-
ing at the Sanibel
Public Library. The
meeting is free and
open to the public.
The discussion will
begin at 2 p.m. in
the meeting room across from the eleva-
tor, Meeting Room 4. Eliot Sugerman will
be leading the group's discussion of the
book.
Deaf Sentence is a novel of coming
to terms with late middle age in which
Desmond Bates a retired professor in his
mid-60s, struggles with the monotony
of retirement while his wife works, and


out, writing consistently to my grandma
about the adventurous details of my life.
She called me one night at college and
said, "Keep writing those letters. They're
adding spice to my life and they keep
me going waiting for the next. In fact,
your letters are so good I just know you'll
become a novelist one day." I'll never
forget those words because I wrote them
in my journal.
My last letter never arrived to
Grandma. She died before it reached
her. But in an effort to "keep her going."
when I wrote my first novel, Sanibel
Scribbles, I made my grandmother one
of the characters and interwove letters to
her throughout the book. I am now living
with my husband and children on Sanibel
less than a mile from where she lived and
bike past her old place, feeling blessed
for the unique influence she had on my
life. When mothers or grandmothers tell
me their children want to be writers, and
ask what they can do to encourage it,
I tell them this: When your child writes
something and wants to read it to you,
stop everything! Turn the faucet off. Pull
the car over. Stop folding laundry and
listen! Listen as if their written words are
what you've been waiting for. And tell
them you can't wait for more. Oh, and
no need to critique it. There are plenty
of other people in the world who will do
that later on.
I hop off my bike and walk up the
pathway to my grandma's old place,
wishing she were still alive so I could go
inside and see if she has put her Nora
Roberts novels aside, if she's reading one
of my three novels instead.
Dear Grandma,
You once told me that the letters I
wrote added spice to your life and kept
you going. Well, the encouraging words
you once gave me have kept me going,
too." -Sanibel Scribbles

Have I lost the eyes of a child
when fireflies captured my attention
with a jar filled with pulled grass
and a popped lid?
Have I touched the hand of a child
as she babbled to the ocean
so the sea understood?

Do I hear the rumpled bubbling
of the running stream on rocks
I merely sit upon?

Have I felt the warm sand sift
between my toes leaving tracks
the wind whispers clean?

Permits Highest

Since 2006
Sanibel City Manager Judie
Zimomra has announced that the
city has received the 20th single-
family home permit application for the
current fiscal year, which runs October
1, 2009 through September 30, 2010.
In comparison, for the entire fiscal
year of 2005, 16 single family home
permits were issued on Sanibel; there
were 19 in 2006; 17 in 2007; and 11 in
2008.
Zimomra stated, "As a community
Sanibel offers an excellent quality of life
to our residents. As our city continues to
reach build-out the remaining lots on the
island are very desirable, perhaps even
more so during the current economic
climate.
"We are especially pleased that our
new construction is not confined to a
single neighborhood but is occurring
island-wide," she added.0

PGA Tips
Which Type Of
Golf Ball Should
You Play?
by Matt Oakley,
PGA Golf
Professional
.r I believe it or
not, not all
golf balls are
made the same.
Some are made to
fly far, some are
made to spin a lot
around the green,
some are relatively
cheap and some are really expensive.
Which one is the right one for you and
your game? Here are a few things to con-
sider the next time you buy golf balls.
1. Distance
Basically, golf balls have two charac-
teristics, distance or feel. Golf balls made
for distance will have a harder cover and
will not spin very much. This reduction in
spin allows the golf ball to fly further and
straighter. Also, because there is less spin
you will get more roll. These distance balls
are typically cheaper. The trade-off is that
the ball will go further, but once you get

around the green they are difficult to stop.
You are trading straight and long for cre-
ativity and feel.
2. Spin/Feel
Golf balls made to spin will have a
softer cover, hence the term "feel." When
you hit them they feel soft. This softer
cover allows the ball to stay on the face of
the club longer, run up the grooves which
produce back spin. These balls are great
around the green. They allow you to hit
shots close to the hole and will stop as
soon as they hit if struck crisply. However,
they also produce much more spin off the
driver and longer clubs which accentuate a
slice or a hook.
These golf balls are usually for better
players who can control the ball off the
tee and desire that feel and spin around
the green. Be prepared to spend a little
more because of their desirable character-

Changes Needed In Dominican
Republic; Free-Wheeling 'Buscones'
Control Prospects As Young As 12
by Ed Frank
A bout 10 percent of Major League baseball players hail
from the Dominican Republic. But is the system flawed
that brought these athletes millions? What are the living
conditions and training facilities in this poverty-stricken coun-
try? And what is Major League baseball doing about the busi-
ness of baseball in the DR?
These questions and many more were raised recently in an
investigative article by Time magazine writer Sean Gregory.
The heart of the prospect system there is dominated by infor-
mal business agents known as "buscones." These free-wheeling
buscones scour the countryside for promising youngsters, some
as young as 12 years old, and bring them to antiquated training grounds where they
are often housed and fed in cramped quarters.
If a Major League scout is interested in signing an athlete a prospect must be at
least 16 years old under Major League rules he must deal with the buscone who con-
trols the teenager. And often, the buscone garners a large share of the signing bonus.
We talked with Mike Radcliff, vice president of player personnel for the Minnesota
Twins, who reiterated that if a team wants to do business in the talent-rich DR, you
have to deal with the buscones.
'It's not a controlled, disciplined system. There have been discussions for change for
years," Radcliff said.
The annual signing window opened this year on July 2, and already four play-
ers from the Dominican Republic have signed contracts in excess of $1.5 million.
Buscones were involved with every one.
While the Twins did sign several prospects this year, they are not involved with
these four high-priced athletes.
However, last year, the Twins invested $3.1 million to sign then 16-year-old Miquel
Angel Sano, who was considered the No. 1 baseball prospect in the Dominican
Republic. The slick-fielding infielder is now playing here in Fort Myers with the rookie
Gulf Coast Twins.
And yes, the Twins did deal with Sano's buscone along with an American agent,
Radcliff said.
The Time article also was critical of the conditions of some of the Major League
baseball academies where players train and are housed and fed. Twenty-nine of the 30
Major League teams operate academies in the DR.
Radcliff said the Twins' academy is a modern facility where dorms, a dining room
and several baseball fields are shared with other Major League organizations.
In March of this year, Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig hired Sandy Alderson, for-
mer vice-president of baseball operations for Major League baseball, to clean up the
player-signing system in the Dominican.
Alderson said in the Time article that the system is flawed and that change is com-
ing.
Most likely the change would be in the form of an international draft which would
eliminate the buscones. Obviously, the buscones bitterly oppose this idea.
Although the dream of baseball riches is the foundation of baseball in the
Dominican, just two percent of Dominican players who signed contracts in the last 10
years have made it to the majors.
"We need to provide educational opportunities for players who have signed con-
tracts, who are in these Major League Baseball academies. We also have to figure
out a way to provide similar opportunities to kids before they sign their contracts,"
Alderson was quoted.
When much-needed improvements are made in the DR, you can be certain the
buscones won't like it.

Twins Acquire All-Star Closer Sending Top Prospect to Washington
As the 2010 season moves into the final two months, the Minnesota Twins
acquired right-handed closer Matt Capps in exchange for catcher Wilson Ramos and
pitcher Joe Testa.
Once again in a tight race in the American League Central Division, the Twins
moved to bolster their relief pitching. In 47 appearances with the Nationals this year,
Capps converted 26 of 30 save opportunities. He was selected to this year's National
League All-Star team.
Ramos is considered one of the top catching prospects in baseball. However, with
MVP Joe Mauer signed to an eight-year contract, the Twins could afford to trade
Ramos who was batting .241 with Triple A Rochester. He hit .288 in 126 games with
the Fort Myers Miracle in 2008.
Miracle Remain Two Games Out of First Place
Despite a sub .500 second-half season record of 16-18 as the week began, the
Fort Myers Miracle baseball team remained just two games out of first place in the
Florida State League South Division.
The Miracle split a four-game series last week on the road against Dunedin and
then lost the first game Saturday in a home series with the Tampa Yankees. Sunday's
game was suspended in the 11th inning due to rain.
The local team is on the road this week at Clearwater, returning home to
Hammond Stadium Monday for three games hosting Jupiter. The first pitch each
game is 7:05 p.m.0

Avoid Downed
Power Lines
by Laura Zocki
Puerto, LCEC
Public Relations
Specialist
power lines are
an essential
Sp part of the
electric system. In
addition to serving
a vital role in the
S distribution of elec-
tricity, power lines
can be extremely dangerous. Coming
in direct contact, or even in close vicin-
ity of a downed power line or anything
touching it can be deadly.
Southwest Florida's severe summer
storms are a main cause of downed
power lines. LCEC energy experts rec
ommend the following tips to help you
stay safe around downed power lines:
If you see a downed power line, stay
away from it!
Call your local electric company or
dial 911 to report the location of the
line, and remember that only trained
line workers who are protected by safety
equipment should touch power lines.
The proper way to move away from
the line is to shuffle away with small
steps, keeping your feet together and on
the ground at all times.


If someone comes in contact with a
live power line, do not attempt to move
the victim or the line yourself. Efforts to
pull an electric shock victim away could
make you a second victim. Call 911
immediately.
Do not attempt to move a downed
power line or anything in contact with
the line by using another object such as
a broom or stick. Even non-conductive
materials like wood, if slightly wet, can
conduct electricity and electrocute you.
Be careful not to put your feet near
water where a downed power line is
located.
If you are in your car and it is in
contact with a downed power line, stay in
your car and call for help.
Do not drive over downed power
lines.

safe around power lines, visit www.lcec.

Insurance Tip:

More Condo

Insurance

Changes
by Marge Meek
continuing on
about the
condo insur-
ance changes that
the state legislature
S approved July 1,
there are a couple
more worth noting.
The earlier article
on this subject
covered that the
regulation saying condo owners had to
carry the association on their own insur-
ance policies has been terminated, thus
saving a lot of work for all.
The bonding requirement remains the
same for the condo association, which is
the bond must be adequate to cover the
maximum amount of funds in the custody
of the association or property manager.
This is true for non-residential condomini-
ums as well as residential condominiums.
An interesting ruling is that hazard
insurance deductibles, uninsured losses
and other damages in excess of hazard
insurance coverage on insurance main-
tained by the condominium association
are the expense of the association. This
means that if the damage is less than
the deductible, and even if the damage
is localized to one unit, the association
unit owners in total must pay for the loss.
If the association by-laws are amended
properly, this rule can be avoided and the
unit owner would bear the expense, thus
making the amount of dwelling coverage
for the unit owner even more important.
July 1 always brings about some
interesting and sometimes controversial
insurance legislation. This year laws were
passed that have been discussed for the
past two years. Some actually make insur-
ance issues a little less difficult to under-
stand and will be appreciated by associa-
tions and insurance agents alike.

Captiva insurance agent, who can be

This will be a critical election year
for Floridians, with decisions
which will impact our com-
petitiveness in education, healthcare,
coastal drilling, protection of our water
resources, growth management, and the
list goes on. Voters will face an historic
number of state offices up for election,
with no incumbents running. In addition,
voters have to navigate as many as 10
complex ballot amendments, with their
choices having a major impact on every-
thing from class size to property taxes.


For the August 24 Florida primary,
the League of Women Voters of Florida
encourages voters to vote the easy way.
There are three ways to cast your ballot:
Vote by mail
Vote early at designated sites in your
county
Vote on Election Day

Will Power
Don't Name Minors As Beneficiaries
To Insurance, Annuities And IRAs
Sby Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills,
Trusts & Estates Attorney, CPA


S oe", a
Widower,
Recently
passed away own-
ing an IRA and life
insurance policies
that named his
daughter as a pri-
mary beneficiary,
with his daughter's
children (Joe's grandchildren) as contin-
gent beneficiaries. Unfortunately, Joe's
daughter predeceased him, so his grand-
children stepped into the role as primary
beneficiary.
When the children's father went to col-
lect the IRA and life insurance benefits for
his children, the financial firms said that
they wouldn't pay the benefits directly
to the children. This is due to the fact
that the children were minors, and they
cannot legally sign for the money. The
children's father offered to sign on their
behalf, as the legal guardian.
Not good enough under the law.
The financial firms are concerned that
if the father were to collect the proceeds
and were to use them for his personal
benefit, then the grandchildren could
later successfully sue the financial firm for
recovery. Believe it or not, this concern is


well founded in the law.
So how does a minor beneficiary col-
lect the benefits from a life insurance pol-
icy, IRA, annuity or other similar financial
instrument that names the minor as a
beneficiary? The usual course of action is
to file a legal guardianship with the court.
The child's parent can be named as the
guardian over the property (in this case
"property" refers to the insurance and
IRA monies), and the court will oversee
the distribution of the proceeds. The
guardianship will last until the minor child
becomes an adult.
Every year the guardian of the proper-
ty will have to petition the court to spend
the money on behalf of the minor ben-
eficiary. The guardian will also have an
obligation to file formal accounting with
the court, detailing income, expenses and
distributions.
Sounds time-consuming and expensive
doesn't it? One can certainly see how
a guardianship proceeding will serve to
protect benefits that could be improperly
consumed by a child's parent or other
guardian, so the law makes sense.
But isn't there an easier way?
There is. The easiest way to avoid an
expensive court administration over the
minor beneficiary issue is much the same


method used to avoid probate. I'm talking
about the use of trusts.
Assume, for example, that Joe instead
created a trust. Instead of naming his
grandchildren as contingent beneficia-
ries to his IRA and life insurance policy,
he names his trust. The trustee that he
appoints in the trust following Joe's death
(could have been the grandchildren's
father, could be some other trusted friend,
relative or even a bank or trust company)
would have the legal authority to collect
the insurance proceeds and IRA monies
and would then distribute those monies
to or for the benefit of the grandchildren
pursuant to the trust provisions.
If Joe were to want those proceeds
held until the grandchildren reached col-
lege, and to pay for the college education
using those proceeds, Joe could specify
this in the trust.
Because the trustee of the trust has a
fiduciary responsibility under the law to
the trust beneficiaries, the financial firms
can make the payment to the trustee
without fear of their own liability under
the law. Instead, the legal liability transfers
from the financial service firm to whoever
is serving as trustee of the trust proceeds
for the grandchildren.
When dealing with IRA accounts, the
trust that serves as the beneficiary needs
to be drafted with a careful eye towards
preserving the tax deferred benefits.
Often the trust needs to have special
provisions concerning the beneficiary's
minimum required distributions" (MRD).
You may be aware that owners of IRA
accounts have MRDs upon attaining the


ISLAND SUN AUGUST 6, 2010 41
age of 701/2. What you may not know
is that EVERY beneficiary of an IRA
account (including Roth IRAs) also will
have MRDs even if the beneficiary is
younger than 701/2. So the trust needs to
include the five requirements for a benefi-
ciary to be considered "identifiable" under
the tax laws, and therefore be entitled to
preserve the tax free growth associated
with the IRA account.
I won't bore you with the five require-
ments here. If you would like to read
them for yourself, look up Treasury
Regulation Section 1.401(a)(9)-4. Then
tell me how long it took you to get cross-
eyed!
Failure of a trust to meet those five
requirements will often result in the IRA
income being wholly taxed in the year
following the IRA owner's death. This
would normally be considered a very bad
tax result.
So if you have named minors as ben-
eficiaries or as contingent beneficiaries
to life insurance, IRAs or annuities, you
should consult with your estate planning
attorney to ensure that all of these issues
have been properly addressed.

Hidden Treasures

Silver, The Other Precious Metal,

Need Not Take Second Place
by Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell
part of culture
for more than
4,500 years,
silver has not always
been considered "
second fiddle to its W,~- "
more illustrious cous- /
in, gold. Its simple
elemental composi-
tion, malleability, and brilliant sheen have
made it a popular precious metal since
the Sumerians first used it in burial cer- r
emonies in 3000 BC. -
Romans used silver in common house-
hold items and for coins in 100 BC and
fine silversmithing techniques used for jew-
elry and other implements became popular
around the same time-frame worldwide.
Proof of this has been found in North ,
America, South America, Europe and Asia.
In the 19th Century, silver became
more affordable because of advances in
technology. Electroplating, or the ability to Perroquet collection is an example of silver
cover another metal with silver, was invent- jewelry
ed. Tiffany and Company began produc-
ing silverware in New York in the mid 1850s and the Navajo tribes of the American
Southwest began working silver (learned from Mexican artists) around the same time.
In England, Queen Victoria's fancies dictated fashion in almost every aspect. She
started the revival of ancient Celtic motifs in jewelry design that began in the middle of
the century and at the end of the 19th Century, she started a movement that entailed
a love of beautiful and individual pieces that lasted until her death in 1901. During
this period, fashions in silver jewelry began to move away from the mass produced
pieces that were prevalent at the beginning of the industrial revolution and to focus on
detailed, individually wrought and hand-crafted items.
Initially, silver and gold were valued relatively equally as they were both considered
attractive and rare. Silver was the only white precious metal until the discovery of plati-
num in the late 1800s and the development of white gold in the 1940s. At this point,
silver suffered an eclipse that lasted for decades.
Today silver dominates the "fashion" market segment of jewelry and it has recently
returned to fine jewelry too. It is considered to be more affordable. Because of this, sil-
ver is often used by creative artisans that are just getting their start, meaning that many
fine and unique silver jewelry items are available at a reasonable price.
So don't think of silver as second to anything. It is simply another material for the
creator and the wearer of a piece of jewelry to use in their celebration of culture that
extends across time.
Today, many of the historical techniques are being revived by contemporary jewelry
designers and artisans and are available at fine jewelry retail locations.

Crafty Lady
The Sticky

Topic Of Glue
by Johanna
Felberbaum
here is a
wide variety
of glues and
adhesives on the
market, seemingly
one for every differ-
ent craft. For paper
crafts, shells, jew-
elry repairs, which
glue do you need?
First of all, when crafty with kids, non-
toxic glues are key. The products will be
marked. Your nose can tell you, too; if
the strong chemical smell is present, that
is a strong glue best for adults.
The strong glues, such as E6000 and
Bond 527 will give you the strongest,
most permanent hold. For adhering
heavy items, such as the bigger focal
shells on your post-beach projects, these
work best.
For general craft gluing, white craft
glue like Elmers and Aleene's Tacky Glue
are good. We like Crafters Pick for our
shell crafting projects covering boxes
and frames with our treasures.

Decorative

Fabrics
by Marcia Feeney
STothing in
Siyour home
will generate
Rr warmth and appeal
more than the
S decorative fabrics
used. A review of
available fabrics will
assist the home-
owner in the some-
times confusing
selection process.
Is any fabric as rich as silk? Imported
from the Orient for centuries, the very
word silk generates opulence in one's
imagination. How can a room not feel
elegant with the incomparable sheen, tex-
ture and depth of color that silk offers?
While there may be no more beautiful
designer fabric, there are certain cautions
to be taken when using silk, primar-
ily its sensitivity to direct sunlight. Your
decorator will specify not only a quality
lining but also an interlining for protec-
tion from the strong Florida sun. When
used for upholstery, silk should always be
enhanced with a knit backing.
Cotton Is Still King
Originating in Egypt, cotton is one of
the most versatile and appealing of all
fibers, natural or man-made. In the home,
cotton is a decorative fabric mainstay. It
dyes beautifully, and when finely spun,
combed, and tightly woven it is both
beautiful and sturdy, lasting for years.
If opulence is your goal, but budget
and durability are important, choose a
high quality cotton fabric in a rich hue or
fabulous print.


Hot glue guns are good for directing
the glue just where you want it and hav-
ing it dry quickly. Because you can build
up the glue a bit and it dries quickly and
clear, it can be good for gluing larger or
irregular sized items such as faux flowers.
There are different size and temperature
glue guns on the market.
If you have had the pleasure of watch-
ing the shell crafters, you may have seen
them use the hot glue pots. Same mate-
rial as the glue guns but kept in a little
pot for dipping. Allows you to control
where you want your hot glue to go and
eliminates the glue "string."
For adhering paper to paper or
another flat surface, glue sticks can be the
easiest, least messy method. There are no
lumps and ripples once dried. There are
sticks that allow you to reposition your
papers before it dries, so it reduces goofs.
Spray adhesives for covering large sur-
faces, fabric glues for fabric, even glues
for foam, flip flops and fancy embellish-
ments, are available for your craft cabinet.
Still unclear about which glue you
need for that project, just I l.








Pre-historic Linen
Long before anyone thought to
unwind a silkworm cocoon or plant a row
of cotton, linen was being woven into
fabric. While dimensionally stable and
easily bleached, linen generally does not
take dyes well thus limiting the range and
depth of colors available.
Since linen is readily recognizable and
tends to be expensive, it immediately
lends prestige to any room it adorns.
However, linen is prone to wrinkling and
does not iron easily so those who enjoy
perfection should make another selection.
Man-made Fabrics
The 1950s brought man-made fabrics
but they lacked many of the features that
were so desirable in the natural fabrics.
But chemists persevered until today we
have many beautiful choices in the man-
mades.
Still, there are a few drawbacks. No
synthetic fabric will have the depth of
color as silk nor the ability to be woven
into the complex patterns available in
cottons. Yet, these fibers and what they
offer in appearance and price extend to
a greater population the pleasure of hav-
ing their home make a strong statement
about quality and opulence.
Your decorator will guide you to the
right fabrics for your home and lifestyle.

Kids Racing For
Life Fundraiser
he 12th annual Kids Racing For
Life fundraiser is scheduled for
Saturday, August 7 at 6 p.m.
at Victory Lane Cafe, 4120 Hancock
Bridge Parkway. North Fort Myers. The
fundraiser will include raffles, an auc-
tion, live sports and entertainment.
The goal is to raise money to pay for
up to 200 children with cancer and their
families to go to Sebring International
Raceway on the September 10-12.
For the past 11 years Kids Racing For
Life has enabled families that have a child
with cancer to go to a race track some-
where in the Southeast for a weekend to
meet drivers, crews, officials, get T-shirts
and other "goodies" and top it off with a
ride in a real road racing car driven by a
qualified professional race car driver.
"This may be the only fun these
families get all year long because of the
cost of medical treatment," said Stephen
Zoeller, spokesman for Zoeller Ministries,
which organizes the event.
"This not only helps the child with
encouragement and hope, but helps the
parents knowing they are not alone going
through this.
"We are at this time $20,000 short of
our goal," Zoeller added.

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
by Constance
Clancy
Q: Is there any
kind of mental
exercise out there
to help prevent
Alzheimer's?
A: If you learn
to keep your mind
and body active as
you age, research
shows that the old
adage "use it or lose it" does in fact apply
to your mental power as much as to the
rest of your body.
We will be hearing more and more
about age-related cognitive decline
(ARCD) for as a whole we are living lon-
ger.
The more education you have, the less
likely you are to develop ARCD; if you
do get this, it will appear later in life than
in less-educated people. It has to do with
neural redundancy and plasticity the
total of extra connections and new con-
nections between nerve cells in the brain.
Combining physical and mental exer-
cise can be helpful; walk and sing, read
while riding a stationary bike, try to recall
plot lines in movies and plays while doing
yard work.
There are even cognitive classes you
can take to keep your mind more active
and mentally alert. Also, living an overall


active and healthy lifestyle will contribute
to ARCD.
Dr Clancy is a licensed mental
health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public
speaker You may email Dr Connie at
connie@drconstance.com or call

New Telephone
System Helps
Patient Care
See Memorial Hospital and the
adjoining Medical Office Center
now have all new telephone
numbers thanks to a state-of-the-art
telephone system that was installed on
August 2. Lee Memorial Health System
replaced the facilities' 25-year-old system
with a new telephone system by Cisco
that will provide more advanced com-
munication capabilities and better patient
care, said Mike Smith, chief information
officer for the health system.
The new telephone system provides
the capability to create an automated
patient room directory for those trying
to contact patients, meaning nurses and
other caregivers will not have to answer
the telephone at their units to transfer
calls to patients' rooms.
"This new telephone system will help
bring Lee Memorial Hospital and the
Medical Office Center into the future of
health care by streamlining the flow of
information throughout the facilities,"


Smith said. "Keeping nurses at the bed-
side also falls in line with our SafeLee ini-
tiative, which is a cultural transformation
throughout our health system to reinforce
that patient safety is our number one
priority."
The new telephone system also pro-
vides the ability for daily reports that
will help identify which departments are
receiving the highest volumes of calls
at what times of the day, so staff can
be adjusted during peak call times to
decrease wait times and improve cus-
tomer satisfaction.
The Cisco system also has more
advanced features that will be activated
over time. All of the new telephone num-
bers will have a "343" exchange, such as
343-5555.
If a person calls one of the old tele-
phone numbers at Lee Memorial Hospital
or the Medical Office Center, one of
three things will happen depending on
the number called:
The call will automatically be for-
warded to the new telephone number if
someone calls the old main line for the
hospital or Medical Office Center, or any
of the old main department numbers.
The caller will receive a voicemail
message stating the new telephone num-
ber for a department or individual.
The caller will receive a notification
that the number is no longer in service. If
this occurs, the caller should contact the
main department number or the main
number for the hospital or Medical Office
Center to be transferred. The new num-
bers are listed at: www.LeeMemorial.org/
phones.


ISLAND SUN AUGUST 6, 2010 47
Fax machine numbers have also
changed and will automatically be for-
warded to the new number. All numbers
will be forwarded for at least 90 days dur-
ing the transition period.
Gulf Coast Medical Center, the
Information Systems offices on College
Parkway, the Regional Cancer Center,
the Outpatient Center at The Sanctuary
and Lee Physician Group at College
Pointe already have the new Cisco
telephone system. HealthPark Medical
Center is scheduled to receive the new
telephone system by December and Cape
Coral Hospital's phones will be updated
in 2011.M

Adoption promotion,

Pet bio
Name: Tinkerbell
Breed: Hound mix
Sex: Female
Age: 9 months
Color: Tan and white
Comments: Even though I'm
still a young pup I've already
done most of my growing. I
love going outside to play with
the volunteers at the shelter but
having a real home is at the top
of my wish list. I would be an
ideal companion for someone
who likes to go for walks, likes
outdoor activities, and who just
needs a good ole buddy.
Adoption is free during
August.
Pet bio
Name: Berlin
Breed: Domestic short hair
Sex: Female
Age: 4 months
Color: Black and white
Comments: I was a little stray
kitten when I arrived at Animal
Services back in May. I hope I
get a new home soon, especially
since kittens are only $25 this
month. My favorite things are
playing, napping, playing, eating
treats, playing, and being a fun
companion. Did I mention that
I love to play? If you have any
other cats I'd love to play with
them too!
