Unanimous -
No More Docks
On The Bay
by Anne Mitchell
In one of the most defining issues of
the decade, the city council stood firm
on the environment Tuesday in vot-
ing 4-0 to uphold the ban on new docks
on the bay to protect the seagrasses.
Councilman Jim Jennings was absent.
It was a complete turnaround from
last April, when council directed the plan-
ning commission to devise an ordinance
that would lift the 17-year-old dock ban.
The planning commissioners, after hours
of debate over several months, were
divided on the issue with three of the four
opposed to lifting the ban. The council
members also seemed torn until Tuesday
when, confronted with a roomful of citi-
zens adamant about maintaining the strict
codes on which Sanibel was founded in

1974, decided principals overcame the
threat of a lawsuit from a number of prop-
erty owners.
If the ban had been lifted, 59 new
docks could be constructed between
Woodring Point and the lighthouse.
Steve Hartsell, attorney representing
owners of seven bayfront properties, had
argued that docks can be built to stringent
standards without harming seagrasses
and that his clients should at least have a
chance to apply for permits. All of them,
he said, already had Florida Department
of Environmental Protection permits for
Hartsell represents Robert and Diane
Williams, Richard Brown, David and
Susan Kentner, Terry Spillane, Chip
Roach, Gerald Paulsen and Jerry's Foods.
A major clincher appeared to be the
new information provided by city staff
regarding, among others:
* Report from Natural Resources
Department on condition of seagrasses in
vicinity of bay beach zone
* Date of purchase of all bay beach
* Bay lots with existing docks;

* Pre-ban bayside lot purchases without
currently existing lot;
* Memo from planning director about
other occasions when amendments were
made to the Sanibel Plan; and
* The process for review and approval
of the police dock on the bay and the
safety reasons for its approval.
The police dock, said Planning Director
Jim Jordan, also serves as a barge bulk-
head in the event of a hurricane as well as
a dock for the fire department boat. Also,
no seagrasses were evident when it was
Rob Loflin, natural resources director,
said a snorkel and mask review of the area
showed "extensive seagrass beds" and that
74 percent of the observation points had
seagrass present. "The total acreage suit-
able for seagrasses was determined to be
about 9.5 acres," he added.
Hartsell questioned the small area sur-
veyed by Loflin rather than the entire bay.
The data from a bigger survey would show
an impact on seagrasses of less than half
of one percent, he said.

the 1990 Baileyfest T-shirts
When you join in the fun at the
25th annual Baileyfest this
Sunday, you can purchase one
of the commemorative T-shirts created
especially for the event. The design was
originally created for the 15th Baileyfest
in 1990. It will be recreated as a tribute
to Baileyfest founder, Sam Bailey.

The artist who created the original
design is Boomer Carroll, who is a
firefighter at the Sanibel Fire & Rescue
District. Carroll was pleased to hear
that his art was chosen for this year's
Baileyfest. I'm honored. I can't believe
that," he said. "I love Sam to death. He
was a really cool guy. It's really cool to
even be associated with an event like
The shirts will be printed in limited
quantities in two styles; a basic T-shirt and
as ringer T-shirts, with the design featured
on the back. Any surplus from the sale of
the T-shirts and all donations at Baileyfest
will benefit Sanibel and Captiva non-profit
Baileyfest will be hosted by Bailey's
Center Merchants Association (BCMA),
on Sunday, October 24 from 1 to 4
p.m. at Bailey's Center on the corner of
Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road.
There will be lots of food and bever-
ages, crowning of Baileyfest King and
Queen, mule and wagon rides, a bounce
house, pony rides and a variety of tradi-
tional games.
The Baileyfest stage will feature
acts from local performers such as

In May, Sanibel Beautification received the top award
from the Florida Native Plant Society for its Periwinkle
Project for the restoration of Periwinkle Way follow-
ing Hurricane Charley. This project was a joint effort
with the City of Sanibel, the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber
of Commerce, and Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation. The project was only one of two recognized
by the society in the transportation category. The other
award went to Miami.
At its June meeting, the Sanibel City Council presented Sanibel Beautification with
a proclamation in recognition and appreciation of 10 years of dedicated volunteer ser-
vice beautifying the island. President Ada Shissler thanked the community for its sup-
port and expressed appreciation to the many volunteers who have donated their time
and talents through the years.
More recently, Sanibel Beautification received a certificate of achievement from the
National Wildlife Federation (NWF). The notification stated that Sanibel Beautification

No More Docks
On Bay
Mayor Kavin Ruane, who two weeks
ago had seemed willing to vote to lift the
ban for "ethical and moral" reasons, said
the staff information "was more than
compelling to me." It showed that all the
owners purchased their property when
either the 1993 or an earlier ban was in
place, so there was no "taking" of prop-
erty by the city.
Several citizens spoke up in favor of
lifting the ban, but the majority wanted
the city to stick to its guns, saying the
reason Sanibel is so beautiful and attrac-
tive to visitors is because it's different
from the rest of Florida due to its tough
stance on protecting wildlife and the natu-
ral environment.
Barbara Cooley, president of
Committee of the Islands, said, "We are
stewards of the land. This is an opportu-
nity to show who we are..."
Resident Ann Yarnall urged the coun-
cil, "Don't tell me I bought into a dying
"It is a different mindset (on Sanibel)
and that is what we came here for. It was
founded on minimizing what we were
going to do to this place," said Karen
Storjohann, resident.
"We have given up rights and made
sacrifices," said John LaGorce, resident.
"I for one would be happy to pay a spe-
cial tax until this issue is finally resolved."
Others commented that caving in on
the issue would weaken the Sanibel Plan
and that property owners here do with-
out a lot of the things that are present
in other places, such as street lights and

traffic lights, in the interest of keeping
Sanibel as pristine as possible.
After the meeting, when asked what
his next step would be, Attorney Hartsell
said, "We will have to examine our

that the Center Place project, which
opened this spring, "isn't going that

Aren't we lucky, so extremely lucky to be living in such a vibrant community
with so much going on? This past Friday we had three outstanding women
from three magnificent organizations come and speak about events that are
taking place on and around our islands. All three activities let you get outside and
enjoy nature in one form or the other. This was a triple-threat of information com-
ing our way last Friday.
Although Betsy Clayton, Lee Counties Parks and Recreation waterways coordina-
tor had scheduled to be with us on Friday, she had to coordinate that with an early
morning interview with a film crew from Lonely Planet as well. Therefore, she was up
first. Clayton was there foremost to remind us that from October 29 and to November

will be holding the annual Calusa Blueway Paddling Festival.
It celebrates the 190-mile marked canoe and kayak trail, The Calusa Blueway, with
10 days of on-water eco-festivities happening throughout Lee County.
Just some of the activities will be: races and regattas, kayak fishing tournament,
guided tours and club paddles, on-water instruction and speakers, sunset socials and
prizes. Check out the web-site www.Calusa BluewayPaddlingFestival.com.
Clayton loves what she does and her enthusiasm for the 233 square miles of inland
waters in our county cannot be contained. "Get out there and see for yourself," she
says. The Blueway is a meandering trail through the natural environment of mostly
salt or brackish water where you can enjoy the peacefulness of shallow-calm water, sur-
rounding fauna and flora, and an outstanding up close view of wildlife.
You don't have to tackle all 190 miles of paddling trails in one day. Take your
time and try segments of the trail. There are three trail maps, Estero Bay-Pine Island
Sound-Matlacha Pass; Pine Island Sound-Matlacha Pass and Caloosahatchee River and
tributaries available as planning tools. Maps are available at a number of places, check
web-site for this information. The maps point out the highlights and access points in
each area along with essential information such as where to park, launch, restaurant
or concessions, phone, picnic facilities, restrooms, lodging, hiking, biking, camping
and historic sites.
You can participate in this wonderful experience, even if you don't have a kayak
because there are a number of outfitters that will rent you all the equipment you will
need. Go to www.GreatCalusaBluewayPadding.com or call 461-7400 for more details.
See you on the waterway!
Great news came next from Sabrina Lartz, research assistant from the Sanibel-
Captiva Conservation Foundation. Since Blind Pass has been reopened and tidal flow
has been reestablished to Clam Bayou, SCCF has been working on providing an envi-
ronment to reclaim this 460-acre body of water to its natural condition. To restore tidal
flushing, the county connected Clam Bayou to Pine Island Sound in 2006 by placing a
30-foot-wide culvert under Sanibel-Captiva Road. Restoration efforts have also includ-
ed placing tons of bagged fossil oyster shells in plastic trays in Pine Island Sound to
establish reefs to provide a habitat for future oyster generation. Oysters are filter feed-
ers and remove algae and pollutants. This will provide nature's own filtering system.
Staff and volunteers have planted a number of mangrove propagules and continue
this effort. These efforts are being financed by $140,000 in grants from the City
of Sanibel, The Nature Conservancy, the National Association of Counties and the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Volunteers are needed to plant
additional red mangrove propagules along the bayou' shoreline (call SCCF to volun-
Mangroves are an important part of Southwest Florida's environment; among other
things, their prop roots provide habitat for many fish species.

Grande For The Fall Festival
by Anne Mitchell
Captive Cruises will be offering two special cruises on Saturday to Boca
Grande for islanders who want to attend the Boca Grande Fall Festival.

Interim Rabbi
emple Bat Yam on Sanibel wel-
comes interim Rabbi James L.
Simon. Rabbi Simon comes to
Bat Yam with 30 years experience as a
rabbi, college professor, religious school
teacher and pastoral counselor.
Oakland, California is the city of his
birth and youth, but he spent much of
his life in the Midwest. After graduating
from the University of California in Santa
Barbara with a BA in political science, he
went on to receive his juris doctorate (JD)
from Hastings College of Law at U of C
in San Francisco. Fortunately for future
congregations and students of Judaism,
Rabbi Simon decided after a short time
that the corporate legal world was not for
him and he "retired" from the practice
of law.
During this uncertain time in his life
he became more interested in Judaism
and in working in the Jewish community.
He soon found himself in Jerusalem as
part of a first year class of Hebrew Union
College rabbinic students. He now holds
a master of arts degree in Hebrew let-
ters from Hebrew Union College-Institute
of Religion in Los Angeles and was
ordained at HUC in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Besides serving congregations in
Merced and Los Angeles, Rabbi Simon
also served in various capacities as rabbi
in McGhee, Alaska; Ames, Iowa; St.
Louis and Clayton, Missouri; Worcester,
Massachusetts; and North Miami Beach
and Pinecrest, Florida. He is a published
author of articles on the Torah, Jewish
ethics, bioethics and religious education
for the Union for Reform Judaism Press
as well as Reform Judaism Magazine.

CROW Case Of The Week:
Eastern Grey Squirrels
by Brian Johnson
C ROW has been Squirrel City this year, treating over 230
I ^individual squirrels since the beginning of 2010.
, C Another three arrived on October 8, found in Fort
S woMyers by Dennis Larson. Their nest fell to the ground while
workers were trimming the tree. Fortunately they noticed what
had happened and contacted Sanibel's wildlife hospital.
"It was a tough morning for them," said Dr. Amber
McNamara. "Their house fell 20 feet to the ground after they
Sr had gotten injured, and they were now without their mother."
" Two of the baby squirrels suffered significant gashes from the
blades of the tree-trimming equipment. "I continue to be amazed
how a tiny animal can get in a scuffle with a chain saw and still
make it," said Dr. Amber.
Squirrel #1 had a nasty gash under his chin, centimeters from major arteries.
Squirrel #2 had wounds on his right leg and pelvis, and did not want to move his rear
legs much.
Staff put all three babies on arnica and pain medication, and added antibiotics for
the two with lacerations. Once comfortable, they were placed in an 85-degree incuba-
tor for the night.
The 50-gram squirrels received nutrition five times per day, including milk and an
electrolyte solution. Over the next few days their eyes started to pop open, and staff
offered them chunks of banana and grapes. They were soon drinking milk and soaked
monkey biscuits out of a bowl, allowing CROW to reduce their feeding to three times
per day.
Within a week the three brothers were moved to a standard cage inside the clinic.
"On Day 7 a little female squirrel came in the clinic who was the same size as them,"
said Dr. Amber. "This squirrel baby had been found all by herself in the street at
Bonita Bay. The boys were more than happy to take in an orphan sister."
What's their typical day like? Sleep. Eat some soaked monkey chow out of the
bowl. Wrestle a little bit. Take a nap. Then sleep some more.
The squirrels have a box for a hiding space and staff members keep them supplied
with branches and fresh bark to clamber on.
They have each gained about 40 grams. "They are looking great, no signs of
infection, and all are moving well," said Dr. Amber. "They will move outside within a
couple of weeks, and should be released in about four to five weeks."

Chamber Parking
Gets A Refreshing

New Look

Recently completed Sanibel Beautification project at the chamber visitor center parking
The Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center is the first stop
many visitors make upon arriving on the island. However, its outside park-
ing area was looking rather worn out and was not making a very good first
impression on visitors. Over the years, the endless stream of cars, trucks, bikes,
and pedestrians had taken their toll. With the causeway islands and Periwinkle Way
looking so good, something needed to be done, and Sanibel Beautification volun-
teered to help.
To address this situation, Sanibel Beautification worked with the City of Sanibel
and the chamber to develop a plan to upgrade the lot and fund the project. Sanibel
Beautification engaged Vanasse Daylor to redesign the parking area to provide better
traffic flow, pedestrian walkways, and designated parking for employees and larger
vehicles. After the city and chamber approved the plans, RS Walsh Landscaping, Inc.

Chamber visitor center parking area improvements
was contracted to install the landscaping. This work is now completed, and the park-
ing lot abounds with new native plants, shelled walkways, and mailboxes relocated
to provide better access. As chamber President Ric Base says, "The finished product
looks fantastic!"
One additional improvement remains. Sanibel Beautification also agreed to pur-
chase a drinking fountain and have it installed near the picnic area in front of the
chamber. This project will be completed shortly.
Now, when visitors cross the causeway, stop at the chamber, and travel Periwinkle
Way, they will see a consistent panorama of native palms, plants and maturing native
landscapes that community organizations and local governments have worked so hard
to establish over the past several years.
The next time you are coming on the island or leaving, take a minute and drive
through the chamber's visitors center and see how the parking lot and grounds have
been beautifully upgraded and provide yet another island facility in which we can take

Think Inshore
For Grouper
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
. -hen think-
" \JI A ing about
. . VY grouper
S fishing, usually
the first thing that
comes to mind is a
long run offshore.
._ Well that is not
always necessary to
bring home a fresh
grouper dinner.
As temperatures cool there is some
great grouper action to be had in the bay,
in the passes and just off the beaches.
Gag grouper up to the 30-inch range can
be caught until the spring all throughout
our inshore waters. It's just knowing
where to look and how to fish for them.
Basically there are two ways to go after
these hard fighting fish; either fishing with
live bait or trolling diving plugs.
Successful live bait fishing for grouper
is all about knowing where the structure

II -

is that they live on, getting set up on
it and getting the bait right down on
it. Most fish are structure-oriented but
grouper take it to a whole other level
and generally live right in or under the
structure. This structure can be some-

thing as simple as a channel marker to
submerged pilings, undercut mangrove
shorelines, downed trees, sunken boats,
concrete rubble, rocks or ledges. Finding
these grouper haunts can take a little
time but once located this structure can
produce fish year after year or as long
as the structure stays there. To catch big
grouper in shallow water, big pinfish are
my bait of choice.
Some of the easier bottom structure
to find and consistently catch grouper on
is in and around the passes. All our local
passes have rocky bottom and ledges in
them that hold grouper. Captiva Pass is
one of my favorite passes to grouper fish
and it holds lots of keeper-size fish.
Pass fishing will get better and better
as we move into winter, with some of
the best action coming right after a cold
front passes by. When targeting grouper
in the passes always keep a close watch
on your sonar/bottom monitor. Look for
sharp drop offs and hard rocky bottom.
I prefer to drift fish so I can cover lots of
ground to locate the fish. I use live pinfish
and keep the bait as close to the bottom
as possible.
In Captiva Pass I concentrate on water
that is at least 16 feet or deeper. Use
enough weight to bounce the bottom as
these grouper hang tight to the rocks.
Depending on how fast the tide is run-
ning this can be anything from a large
split shot all the way up to a one-ounce
weight. If you're not breaking off a few
rigs on the bottom you're not fishing
enough weight. Once you hook a few
fish, mark the spot on the GPS and keep
drifting over it.

Finding good grouper structure in the
bay takes a little more effort. Many chan-
nel markers up and down the intracoastal
have had structure dumped on or off of
them over the years. Everyone loves their
own honey hole and over time anglers
have illegally dumped anything from
washers and dryers to concrete culverts,
toilets and tires off these markers and all
over the bay. These markers give a good
visual aid to the reef maker to find their
secret pile over and over. By going chan-
nel marker to channel marker, dropping a
live pinfish down to the bottom, you will
quickly find out which markers hold grou-
per and which ones don't.
Bridges also offer great grouper habi-
tat. The Sanibel Causeway has a good
variety of structure including pilings, rocks
and sunken barges. John Morris Beach
also has some rocky areas that hold grou-
per year after year. Looking on charts
can also give you some places to check
out. Look for rocky bottom and ledges in
the bay and close to the beaches.
Trolling diving plugs is another way to
catch shallow water grouper. Plugs catch
grouper both bayside and gulfside. When
buying diving plugs they are labeled at
the depth they dive to. For trolling in the
bay generally you look for a plug that will
run six tol2 feet deep around the passes
and bridges, 20 to 25 feet deep then off
the beaches, 25 to 35 feet deep. All the
major tackle makers make an assortment
of these deep running plugs.

and around bridges is a good place to get
started. Gulfside, I like to troll along the
crab pot buoys as they are usually set on
a ledge or natural drop-off; also try troll-
ing around nearshore public reefs. Some
of the biggest redfish I have ever caught
have been caught while trolling for grou-
per along the beaches.
For grouper tackle I go one of two
ways. These hard hitting-fish need to be
pulled up and away from the structure or
they will quickly break you off. Livebait
fishing does not require finesse, it's full
contact fishing. With live pinfish I use a
medium/heavy spinning outfit rigged with
at least 30-pound braided line and at least
a 40-pound fluorocarbon leader. The drag
should be almost locked up. Be ready to
grab the spool to pull these strong fish
away from the structure. Grouper battles
on live bait are won and lost within the
first few seconds. I also carry a meat stick
that's a short, stand up tuna rod with a

conventional reel. It's rigged with 100-
pound braid for the bigger inshore grou-
per that are next to impossible to pull
away from the structure.
When trolling diving plugs I use
conventional tackle rigged with at least
50-pound braid. I run a swivel and a
piece of 80-pound leader. Trolling does
give you a bit of a advantage as the mov-
ing boat pulls the fish away from the
structure as soon as it hits the plug. Leave
the drags tight and turn the clickers on
so you can hear the reel go off when you
hook up.
Inshore grouper are one of my go-to
species all fall and winter long.

Free Vessel Safety Checks

No, no, no...

submitted by Bob Allen
The Sanibel-Captiva Sail & Power Squadron, through education, helps protect
you from cowboys like that pictured. Yes, he is traveling too fast - particularly
if he has to use binoculars to find where he is going. Give him credit for using
life preservers.
Warning: a boat captain who creates a large wake can be found responsible for
damage or capsizing of other boats - even those at a distance or docked.
The government requires your boat to have certain identification and equipment.
These requirements vary by vessel type and size. Usually required items include: a
properly fitted and in good condition life preserver for crew and passengers, either
worn or readily available, a sound device (in some cases a small whistle will do), work-
ing running and anchor lights, a fire extinguiser, a bilge pump or bailing device. The
fines for lacking proper equipment can be significant. Did you know that if you use a
friend's boat or rent a boat, when underway, you are the captain and are responsible
for having the required equipment? Be smart and obtain a free vessel safety check.
Call Bob Healy at 466-4169 to arrange a mutually agreeable time and place for the
inspection. Boats found properly equipped receive a sticker to that effect. You can be
sure that authorities on patrol look for that sticker. At the inspection, if a fault is found,
there is no fine and there is no sticker awarded. When a fault is corrected, arrange for
another free inspection and ultimately get your sticker.
This past season a group of canoeists decided on a two-hour exploration of man-
grove back bays. They became lost and, after five exhausting hours, found their way
back. They are now interested in GPS (ground positioning system). While GPS tells
you where you are, it won't tell you the way out (charts are not common for mangrove
back bays). However, most GPS units have a tracking feature which records will you
have travelled. You can backtrack on that record to get home. This features also works
well if you are suddenly enveloped in fog. As it happens, on November 20 we are
offering a public two-hour course on GPS. Call Roger Heider at 395-0959 or Tom
Gillis at 472-3828 for more information

Plant Smart
by Gerri Reaves
B utterfly gardeners will want
to include butterfly heliotrope
(Heliotropium angiosper-
mum) in the landscape as a nectar
This Florida native is known for
its two rows of tiny white flowers
that curl into terminal spikes. Those
spikes give the plant another com-
mon name, scorpion-tail.
The curving spikes attract a vari-
ety of butterflies all year long and
contrast prettily against the dark-
green hairy leaves.
This fast-growing woody shrub
typically reaches one to three feet in
height. In the wild, it is found in shell
mounds and coastal strands.
A member of the forget-me-not
or borage family, it will grow in a
variety of soils, including dry, sandy,
rocky, or compost-rich.
It prefers full sun, as implied by
the name heliotrope, which means
"turning toward the sun."
Propagate butterfly heliotrope
with seeds or cuttings. It might need
replacing after a few years, but its

24 ISLAND SUN - OCTOBER 22, 2010

My Stars ***
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might
be growing impatient with a situation that
seems to resist efforts to resolve it. But staying
with it raises the odds that you'll find a way to a
successful resolution.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Travel and
kinship are strong in the Bovine's aspect this
week. This would be a good time to combine
the two and take a trip to see family members
for a pre-holiday get-together.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A colleague
could make a request you're not comfortable
with. If so, say so. Better to disappoint someone
by sticking with your principles than disappoint
yourself if you don't.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The Moon
Child's ability to adapt to life's ebbs and flows
helps you deal with the changes that you might
confront at work or at home, or both. Things
settle down by the week's end.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) It's a good
week for Leos and Leonas to get some long-
outstanding business matters resolved. Then
go ahead and plan a fun-filled family getaway
weekend with the mate and the cubs.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A
possible workplace change seems promising.
If you decide to look into it, try not to form an
opinion on just a small part of the picture: Wait
for the full image to develop.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A
newcomer helps keep things moving. There
might be some bumpy moments along the way,
but at least you're heading in the right direction.
You win praise for your choices.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
You could be pleasantly surprised by how a
decision about one thing opens up an unex-

pected new option. Also, assistance on a project
could come from a surprising source.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) With more information to work
with, you might now be able to start the process
that could lead to a major change. Reserve the
weekend for family and friends.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) This could be a good time to begin gather-
ing information that will help you turn that
long-held idea into something substantive. A
personal matter might need extra attention.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
That new challenge might carry some surprises.
But you should be able to handle them using
what you already know. That new supporter
should be there to lend assistance.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Someone might be trying to disguise his or her
true motives. But the perceptive and perspica-
cious Pisces should have little or no problem
finding the truth in all -h.11 I .,, rhetoric.
BORN THIS WEEK: You can always rely
on your people skills to help you find solutions
to problems others often give up on.

* On Oct. 25, 1861, the keel of the Union
ironclad Monitor is laid at Greenpoint, N.Y The
ship had an unusually low profile, rising from
the water only 18 inches, and had a draft of less
than 11 feet so it could operate in the shallow
harbors and rivers of the South.

to radio receivers up and down the East Coast.*
On Oct. 31, 1957, Toyota executives, hoping to
saturate the American market, introduce their

very similar accident just a few blocks away.

University Medical Center in Loma Linda,
Calif., Dr. Leonard L. Bailey performs the first
baboon-to-human heart transplant, replacing a
14-day-old infant girl's defective heart with the
healthy heart of a young baboon. The infant,
"Baby Fae," survived the operation, but died of
heart failure after 20 days.
* On Oct. 30, 1991, the so-called perfect
storm hits the North Atlantic. The fishing boat
Andrea Gail and its six-member crew were lost
in the storm. The disaster spawned the best-
selling book "The Perfect Storm" by Sebastian
Junger and a blockbuster Hollywood movie of
the same name.

proved that people who experience a stronger
gravitational pull age more quickly. What does
this mean for you? If you spend your life pre-

Stories Of Monofilament Madness
by Dee Serage-Century
D during the October 9 week-
end, Michael Timm from
FIU, Stephanie Weber from
Bank of the Islands, and Preston . .
Schuetz from Billy's Rentals col-
lected marine debris from the man-
groves at the end of Dixie Beach
Boulevard toward Woodring Point. , -
Here is what they found... a cast .4.,
net with dead fish and three dead, -
snakes who tried to eat the fish.
Yes, I like snakes and this bothers
me. An even scarier find was a
pump sprayer full of who knows
what kind of chemicals! Did it float
in from Pine Island? If this is what
was above the water, it makes you
wonder what is underwater waiting
to trap a sea turtle or diving bird.
Juvenal green sea turtles live in our
estuaries, feeding on sea grass until
mature enough to nest. A young Michael Timm collects a heap of tangled line
green turtle was found in the bay
this summer entangled in fishing line. Thankfully it was rescued.
On a bit of a brighter note, Dave Jensen from Jensen's Twin Palms Marina rode
his bike to Blind Pass bridge to contemplate his strategy to remove marine debris from
Roosevelt Channel. From the bridge he sighted a live bird in the rocks, struggling and
tangled in - you guessed it - monofilament line. The good news is a young fisherman
named Ramsey Fisher was in the right place at the right time and helped Jensen free
the heron. Jensen took the timing of this event as a sign and the Jensens are now
adopting Roosevelt Channel and will collect monofilament two to three times a year.
There is also a large group of volunteers from "Ding" Darling that have been col-
lecting line from Wildlife Drive and other areas for many years, led by Doris Harding.
Harding, along with her dog, Chauncey, have also adopted Clam Bayou.
Do you have a mangrove area that you would like to adopt and clean throughout
the year? Call me at SCCF at 472-2329 so I can give you a big pat on the back.

Queenie Viglione picks up monofilament at Blind Pass

The Monofilament Madness finale will be on the SCCF porch on Sunday, October
31 from 9 a.m. to noon. Bring your pictures of and/or debris. Join us for hot dogs
and cake. SCCF is now 43 years young. You could be crowned the islands' first Mad
Hatter for the most inspiring, grossest, or most depressing Monofilament Madness

Rainbow Girls Raised
Pot Of Gold For Refuge

. .14r'A .IIII h l kL'

DDWS President Jim Scott, DDWS Past President Susan Cassell, Rainbow Girls Past Grand
Worthy Advisor Becky Dunlap, Rainbow Girls Past Grand Drill Leader Jackie Hogston,
Rainbow Girls Supreme Deputy in Florida Jackie Harmon, DDWS Executive Director Birgie
Vertesch, and Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland
The Florida chapter of the International Order of Rainbow Girls -- a service
organization that raises funds for local, state, and national causes - selected
"Ding" Darling Wildlife Refuge as its recipient for 2009.
Becky Dunlap, then grand worthy advisor of Florida, decided she wanted to do
something that involved wildlife and the environment. One of the organization's adult
advisors recommended "Ding" Darling, among her favorite places to visit.
On May 2, 2009, after contacting the refuge, about 30 Rainbow Girl members
visited the refuge as part of their Grand Retreat to learn more about "Ding" Darling.
Tarpon Bay Explorers, the refuge's recreational concession, treated them to kayaking
and a tram tour, while the refuge hosted a program that included making stuffed mana-
tee dolls they could take home with them.
"Something just felt right," said Dunlap. "It grew into something a lot bigger than
we expected."
Since the summer of last year, members ages 11 through 20 throughout the state
have raised money for the refuge by holding walk-a-thons, car washes, pancake break-
fasts, concession sales at University of Central Florida sports games, and other proj-
On Saturday, October 16, Dunlap and other Florida Rainbow Girls representatives
presented the "Ding" Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) with a
check for $10,450. That is up to double of what the organization typically has raised
for causes in recent years, according to group leaders.



SAT 11-5






"It's wonderful to see young ladies in leadership roles being involved in conserva-
tion!" said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland, who, along with past DDWS
President Susan Cassell, organized the undertaking.
"What a great surprise to see how hard these girls worked, and how important their
contribution will be to the society's mission to support the refuge," said Cassell. "We
plan to maintain contact with the group to let them know exactly how their incredible
efforts are paying off for the environment."
As a non-profit 501c-3 organization, "Ding" Darling Wildlife Society works to sup-
port JN "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge's mission of conservation, wildlife and
habitat protection, research, and public education.

and irresistible rhythms mark a wide
range of songs that encompass jazz, gos-
pel, and funk.
The cast is comprised of Erin Edelle,
Michael Fisher, Mara Jill Herman, and
Joe Donnelly. Together, this talented
foursome sings about a new world in

which the definitions of family, distance,
money, the very nature of human contact
is changing every day. A world where
today's answers probably won't apply
tomorrow. The lyrics are profound and
the stories are familiar.
The River Won't Flow is about a
15-year-old who leaves home determined
to strike it rich only to find out the river
won't flow for him. Stars and The Moon
is about a young woman meeting a poor
young man who promises her stars and
the moon, hope and strength and some-
one who will be there to support her. She

wants a yacht and all the things riches
can bring her. She marries a wealthy man
only to discover she missed her chance at
true happiness.
Songs For a New World has been
captivating audiences since its opening
Off-Broadway in 1995 and it definitely
captivated the audience opening night

T he secret is out. The Sanibel Community Association
announced the contestants for this year's Dancing with
the Islands' Stars at the kickoff party. Island stars Matt
Asen, Kay Casperson, Cynthia Crocker, Kym Nader, Eric
Pfeifer, and Maureen Valiquette were introduced and paired
up with professional dance instructors from the Fred Astaire *
Dance Studios in Fort Myers, where they will work on their
ballroom dance routines from now until the January competi-
tion. The Community House's major fundraiser is scheduled
for January 22 with a dress rehearsal on the 21st.
Judged not only on performance by a panel of judges, the
dancers' ability to get votes through fundraising money for The
Community House also determines the final Islands' Stars tro- Kym Nader
phy winner. The second trophy, the People's Choice winner,
will also be awarded by popular vote on who the audience over both nights thinks is
the best dancer.
The Sanctuary Golf Club provided the hors d'oeuvres for the kickoff party, which
culminated in a champagne toast to thank all the stars, the professional dancers
and the crew that creates such a stellar experience with lights, audio and video. The
whole support group is back from last year. Emcee Richard Johnson and judge Marj
Nordstrom jumped right in to welcome this year's dancers. Some of last year's dance
stars, Linda Naton (this year's chair of the event), Karen Bell, Billy Kirkland, and Susan
Scott, stopped by to offer their congratulations to the new stars. Al Hanser of the
Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, the event sponsor again this year, added his support
to this amazing fundraising event.
Tickets for Dancing with the Islands' Stars will go on sale December 1. Each dancer
has a limited number of tickets reserved for their own fundraising.
The funds raised from this event support the redevelopment of The Community
House. Some of last year's proceeds were used to hire an architect, who is now in the
final stages of creating the master plan that will be shared with the community soon.

Art Of The Olympians Movie Premier
T he Art of the Olympians began as a dream of Olympic
gold medalist Al Oerter. He spent the last two years of
his life organizing Art of the Olympians by collecting
artwork in various mediums from Olympic athletes, lobbied for
a permanent location in Fort Myers and worked in partner-
ship with the United States Olympic Committee (USOC). That
ultimately led to an agreement for the Art of the Olympians to
display the U.S. Olympic rings at the facility.
His untimely death in 2007 would mean that Oerter, a four-
time Olympic champion in the discus throw, would not see his P
dream come true... but it did. ...j
On Friday, October 29 at 5:30 p.m. at Harborside Event
Center in Fort Myers, Main Sail Video Productions with Art Peggy Flemming
of the Olympians is hosting an Evening with Peggy Fleming in
honor of the world premiere of the documentary, Art of the Olympians. The 30-min-
ute film, by Emmy Award winning Photographer/Director Ilene Safron, documents
the dreams of Oerter in his mission of uniting the sports and art world to uphold the
virtues of excellence above winning.
"The Olympic champions portrayed in the film represent the best of the best who
had the choice of living an honorable life or giving into the temptations offered to
them," says Safron. "It's imperative that we share this story to recognize sports leg-
ends that kids can look up to."
On hand to introduce the documentary will be Peggy Fleming, the 1968 Olympic
gold medal figure skater and artist. Norman Bellingham, CEO of the U.S. Olympic
Committee, will also attend the premiere showing.

Amazing Talent At Broadway Palm
by Di Saggau
A making only begins to describe the talent featured in
j. Broadway Palm's production of Hairspray. It's the early
..1 '60s in Baltimore and effervescent, overweight teen
'Tracy Turnblad (Danielle Arci) is enamored with The Corny
Collins Show, the local TV dance program.
4 S She wants to be a dance regular and is madly in love with
Link, a heartthrob member of the show. She also wants to inte-
grate the dance club by bringing in black music and dancers. We
find ourselves cheering for her.
This award winning musical serves up an evening of top-notch
fun from start to finish. It's a show that dares you to sit still. The
rocking opening number, Good Morning Baltimore, sets one's feet a-tappin'.
Choreography by Amy Marie McCleary is positively thrilling, with sweeping move-
ments, full of little character details that constantly delight. The stage is filled with danc-
ing teenagers and their worried mamas, all in colorful costumes and outrageous wigs.
Arci as Tracy bubbles over with energy and movement and she can really belt out a
Chuck Caruso's drag turn as Edna is truly a tour de force, because this fine actor
understands that the key to Edna is that she cares so much.
She's remarkably real and makes a crucial connection with the audience.
Nedra Culp as Motormouth Maybelle brings down the house in the second act with
her rendition of I Know Where I've Been.

Clothesline Quilt Show At Estates

Quilts displayed at the Edison Estate
he Edison & Ford Winter Estates and the Southwest Florida Quilter's Guild
will be "airing quilts" on clotheslines on Saturday, October 30 from 10 a.m.
to 2 pm. There will be nearly one hundred quilts on display on clotheslines
between the palms as well as antique cars, Edison era music, floor cloth demonstra-
tions with Southwest Florida artist Marie Dyer, and workshops on textile care with
Estates Curator Alison Giesen.
The show is a collaborative project of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates, the
Southwest Florida Quilter's Guild and regional antique car clubs.
"Airing quilts was a regular fall activity more than a hundred years ago," says
Giesen. "We are continuing the tradition of airing out quilts from the estates collection
as well as the new art quilts and personal collections of guild members."
Traditional live music performed by an old fashioned musician using the hammer
dulcimer will be played on the Edison porch, handmade items will be available for pur-
chase from guild members.
The basis for the quilt exhibit follows the interest of the Ford family in the early
1900s as they collected quilts and other historical objects. In fact, their interest grew

Quilting demonstrations and care of textile workshops will take place throughout the day
so large that they created Greenfield Village in Dearborn Michigan, a museum com-
plex established in 1929. The collection extended from household objects and crafts
to many important American buildings, among them the original Edison Research
Laboratory from the grounds of the Edison Estate in Fort Myers.
Henry Ford and his wife Clara collected, celebrated and displayed what industry
created but also what ordinary folks had designed, produced and used during the previ-
ous two centuries. In their efforts they created a museum complex on a massive scale.
Along with the wagons, buildings, machines and other examples of American life, they
included quilts. There was little question that quilts, often assembled from modest fabric
scraps, epitomized the resourcefulness of American women that the Fords so admired.
In the event of rain, the one-day exhibit will be canceled.

Join The Zombie
Hordes At Fort
Myers Ghoulfest
The ocean, it's said, never gives up
her dead... or does she?
The soggy corpses of shipwreck
victims, sunken naval officers, castaways,
lost airmen, mermaids, voodoo tribes-
men, shark-torn scuba divers, creatures
from the deep and more will rise from a
watery grave and drag themselves ashore
for Zombicon 2010.
On Saturday, October 23 at 6 p.m.,
the public is invited to dress as the living-
dead and join the zombie horde on
the Patio de Leon, in downtown Fort
Myers. This free interactive art event is
Southwest Florida's largest gathering of
zombies and those who love them.
Inspired in part by George Romero's
Day of The Dead (filmed in Fort
Myers and Sanibel), the centerpiece of
Zombicon is the Zombie Walk. This is
improvisational street theater in which
costumed participants walk en masse
through the streets of downtown.
Following this ghoulish procession is
an evening of live performance featuring
eclectic rockers Strange Arrangement,
and local favorites Justin Zero, DJ Slinky
and Groove Chemist. Making their fourth
consecutive appearance at Zombicon are
The What We Do Drummers, who will be
joined by belly dancer Angela Hicks and
The FyreFly Fire Dancers. The infamous
Zombie-a-Go-Go will dance their way up

Rachel Renee Telfor and Nicole Fous-Long
from The Severed Seas.
Reanimated corpses will compete for
prizes in the fourth annual costume con-
test, sponsored by Radio Station 99X and
hosted by Alexis, who will be broadcast-
ing live from the Patio de Leon.
More than a dozen bars and res-
taurants will be offering drink specials
throughout the night for those who have
purchased an official Zombicup, available
at the Zombicon merchandise booth and
locations throughout downtown.
Just prior to this ghastly spectacle, the
Walk-Like-A-Zombie Acting Workshop
will be held at The Florida Repertory

ibel Deli &

Theater Studio Space,
2267 First Street,
from 4:30 to 5:30
p.m. Basic techniques
taught by local actors
will be put into practice
immediately following
this free class. Those
who would like to par-
ticipate in the Zombie
Walk but are helplessly
"alive" can be trans-
formed on the spot for
a small fee, at the Kiss
Me/Kill Me Make-Up
The annual
Zombicon themed
art show Dark Art
4, sponsored by The
Indigo Room, Space
39 Gallery, and Sign-
A-Rama, features local
artists and is displayed
in windows along the Mike Quinn and N
Patio de Leon. The
zombie horde will reas-
semble at midnight for the second and
final Zombie Walk, which brings the event
to a close.
Last year Zombicon collected nearly
1,000 pounfs of food to help feed the
hungry. Once again participants are
asked to bring canned goods for the
local Harry Chapin Food Bank. The
Bloodmobile be on hand, as vampires
from the Lee Memorial Blood Center col-
lect donations of real blood in exchange
for candy blood and T-shirts.
Helping to promote Fort Myers as an
International Zombie Tourist Destination,
the Hotel Indigo will be offering discount-
ed room rates for all zombies" who men-
tion Zombicon when making reservations.

Monday Night Movie
The Last Station
Kicks Off Monday
Night Movies
by Di Saggau
T he Monday
s Night Movie
Windows To The
World begins with
ii . The Last Station
to be shown
November 1. A
tremendous cast
makes this movie
one that will stay
with you for a long time. It focuses on the
last year of Count Tolstoy (Christopher
Plummer), a full-bearded Shakespearian
figure presiding over a household of
intrigues. The chief schemer is Chertkov
(Paul Giamatti), his intense follower, who
idealistically believes Tolstoy should leave
his literary fortune to the Russian people.
His wife Sofya (Helen Mirren), on behalf
of herself and her children, (she bore him
13) is livid. There are all kinds of exam-
ples of subtleties in the performances.
Chertkov, at the beginning of the
movie, is under house arrest in Moscow
and can't get out to the Tolstoy estate, so
he hires a secretary, Valentin Bulgakov
(James McAvoy). He has the job of
double-agent, helping Tolstoy with his
writing and reporting back to Chertkov as
to what's going on in the house. Valentin,


however, begins to sympathize with
Sofya, at least to the point where he can
serve as a go-between to the two camps
when the crisis comes.
It's 1910, Tolstoy is in his 82nd year,
active and robust, but everyone knows
his end might be near. The Russian
equivalent of paparazzi lurk in the neigh-
borhood, hoping to get a glimpse of the
greatest living novelist. As the formidable
patriarch, Plummer avoids playing Tolstoy
as a great man. He plays him as a man
who knows he is considered great. Mirren
plays a wife who knows his flaws, but has

loved him since the day they met. She is
16 years his junior and the first decade of
their marriage brought Tolstoy the great-
est happiness; never before or after was
his creative life so rich or his personal life
so full.
The movie is based upon the book by
Jay Parini. It is a work of historical fic-
tion constructing what transpired in the
life and household of Tolstoy's last year.
Tolstoy famously opened Anna Karenina
with the observation that, "All happy
families are all alike; each unhappy fam-
ily is unhappy in its own way." He was
45 when he wrote that. Thirty-seven
years later, at age 82, he would die at the
remote Astapovo train station, not far
from his home, after fleeing, in the mid-
dle of the night, his estranged wife of 48
years, abandoning his family, his wealth,
and setting out to live the life of a wan-
dering ascetic. Ironically, he fulfilled the
observation that his family was, indeed,
singularly unhappy.

Long Story Short

Like Layering A Tree
by Christine Lemmon
S elf-doubts are like weeds, a constant part of life, but
you must inhibit the weed seeds from germinating. I've
learned to control them with the least amount of time and
energy, but strong weeds, I've found, have a way of emerging
through concrete. "-excerpt from the book Sand in My Eyes
Self-doubting is part of the writing process. Aspiring authors
chat with me at book signing, sharing with me their secrets -
they've been working on a novel for years but fear it might not
be good. I tell them I understand. After months of inspiration
and countless hours typing away long after my family had gone
to bed, I sent my Sand in My Eyes manuscript to a New York
editor (not an agent; but an editor who gives objective critique).
Frankly, she told me to bury the manuscript. The story didn't stand a chance and no
amount of editorial consultation could transform it into anything the world would want
to read. Then she told me to contact her after I write my next story.
The negative feedback triggered in me a sort of "dark night of the creative soul."
The thought of inspiration not existing produced within me a deep loneliness - the
kind one might feel when alone in a house with nothing but the thoughts in their mind
because they don't believe in their soul. And that's putting it mildly. As I took daily five-
mile walks around the island, I wondered for weeks whether it had been blind faith that
kept me writing this story night after night, chapter after chapter, or stubborn determi-
nation. It was like my mind and soul were at odds with each other and they were ques-
tioning which one was to blame for having me waste all that precious time working on
the same story, a ridiculous story.
So I say to writers who confide in me, "yes, I understand your fears." But then I tell
them this, that one day in the midst of this creative darkness, I walked and prayed to
God, asking whether I should bury this story for good or not. And while walking down
Tarpon Bay Road past Bailey's, there was a white bird standing in the middle of the
road, stopping traffic. A woman held her head out her car window and said to me,
"These birds - they have no fear!" I thought about her words the entire way home and
the very next morning, set my alarm and without fear started rewriting my story from
start to finish.
I saw then in my mind that my story was like a tree - a barren tree - so page after
page I embellished it, adding a layer of details that were like leaves to my tree. Next I
added a layer of beauty to my story - flowers to my tree. And I made my plot juicier,
writing until I could see fruit in my tree. I came into my voice and it was like there
were birds in my tree and they were chirping. I printed and read it but realized that the
branches weren't moving so I went back from start to finish adding spirit to my story.
This layer of spirit was the wind that had my story coming to life. And when I saw in
my mind that my story, my tree was beautiful and full of life, I wrote the words "the
end." The book has since won awards, gone into multiple print-runs and has received
national reviews far more positive than I ever could have imagined.
Now I do believe there are times when we have to move on and start something
new. When you try something over and over again to the point of insanity and it still
doesn't work, pinching off the spent blossoms and leaves encourages other blossoms
to open and makes their flowers last longer. I have found it to be true that giving up
certain projects in the past only made my next attempts more prolific. But this story
I believed in. And I had thanked the Lord each time a sentence or paragraph fell into

my hands like a blossom from a tree. I'm glad I didn't bury it.
"A writer doesn't only pick her themes like apples from a tree; she prepares the
ground, plants, grows, harvests, nurtures and processes those themes, too. It took a
long time, and the process of writing it was hard, but I never wanted to look back one
day and ask myself, why didn't I plant a Royal Poinciana?" -Sand in My Eyes

the army as a private along with his
younger brother Kevin.
Personally sacrificing much to serve
his country, Tillman and his brother vol-
unteered for the elite Rangers, survived
rigorous training and were deployed to
Iraq. A second and fatal third tour to
Afghanistan followed.
At twilight on April 22, 2004, in a
small Afghan hamlet near the Pakistan
border, Specialist Pat Tillman was killed
instantly by "friendly fire" in the forehead
when his Ranger platoon was divided
before a Taliban ambush in a canyon.
Acclaimed author Jon Krakauer writes
in Where Men Win Glory, friendly fire
deaths are inevitable "for the simple
reason that fraticide is part and parcel of
every war." Krakauer quotes The Oxford
Companian To American Military
History as estimating "2 to 25 percent of

FGCU Pajama
And Book Drive
F orida Gulf Coast University's
Office of Service-Learning and
Civic Engagement invites all Eagles
and members of the Southwest Florida
community to join the millions of people
across the nation making a difference by
participating in a campus-wide Pajama
and Book Drive. It will benefit the
Pajama Program, a national organiza-
tion with a local chapter in Southwest
Florida whose mission is providing
sleepwear, books, and comfort to chil-
dren in need. Purchase new pajamas
and/or books for infants to teens and
drop them off between 9 a.m. and
11 a.m., Saturday, October 23 at the
flagpole loop in Parking Lot 5 on the
FGCU campus.
Make a Difference Day, created by
USA Weekend Magazine, takes place
annually on every fourth Saturday in
October and encourages communities to
participate in projects big and small.
The organization was founded by
Genevieve Piturro, who 10 years ago
noticed children in shelters and group
homes sleeping in their clothes because
they did not own one pair of pajamas.
Thousands of the children served by this
organization live in orphanages, group
homes and shelters, and are shuffled
often between temporary living facilities.
Many of the children have never known
the simple comfort of having a mother or
father tuck them in at bedtime and read


* L

casualties in America's wars are attribut-
able to friendly fire."
However, in the unusual case of
Tillman, the military immediately burned
his uniform, body armour, helmet and
personal diary in an empty oil drum. A
statement was quickly released that the
former Arizona State and Rose Bowl star
had died heroically fighting the Taliban
and would be awarded a Silver Star
posthumously. His platoon buddies were
hushed up.
Krakauer, a relentless reporter and
interviewer, finds that questions were

to them.
"Emotionally, pajamas are a hug for
children who feel lost and alone," said
Pajama Program's Southwest Florida
Chapter President Lizzie Golumbic, stated
on her website, pajamaprogram.org, "It
is such a good feeling to know we are
helping children in need feel loved, warm
and safe." Many of the children who
receive the new pajamas are from The
Shelter for Abused Women and Children,
Youth Haven, Children's Angel Network,
Immokalee Childcare Center, and Our
Mother's Home - all local agencies in
Lee and Collier counties.

still believed in the war in Afghanistan

After torrential rains cancelled last year's inaugural race, runners and organiz-
ers could not have been more pleased with the blue skies and sunshine this past
Saturday morning for the 10K Race 4 FISH.
The weather showed the beauty of the island to full effect, and provided ideal condi-
tions for the athletes to excel. Proceeds went to benefit FISH of Sanibel, Inc., which
provides meals and services for those in need on the islands.
"It was awesome, we couldn't have asked for better weather," said Fort Myers Track
Club President Candy Pemberton. Fort Myers Track Club hosted and organized the
race in conjunction with FISH.

Around The Islands With Anne
Island Businesses
Get Ready For
A New Season
by Anne Mitchell
Can you feel it? It's not just the crisp fall
weather we've been experiencing, it's
more like a feeling in the air of renewal
- a readiness to start a new season.
Businesses have been sprucing up and mer-
chants are taking delivery of fresh new merchan-
dise. Everyone's hoping for a successful winter
season and, as I have reported in recent weeks,
new restaurants and stores are either open or
getting ready to.
One long established store, Why Knot
and Why Knot Relax in The Village Shops,
is sporting an entire new inventory with more
women's casual fashions arriving weekly. As is
customary, owners Joan Chiaramonte and her

daughter Jen, cleared out last year's inventory to
the bare walls, then went on their annual buying
spree in preparation for a new season.
In my opinion, theirs is the classic island look
for women: timeless, comfortable and classic
but never frumpy. Most of their clothing is natu-
ral fabrics - linen, cotton, even bamboo - and
styled to wear in layers for our island lifestyle.
Labels include Flax linens, Mod-o-Doc dip dyes,
CMC candlewick, Avani tissue burnout shirts,
Chalet no-iron wrinkle separates, natural-dye
Synergy and Bkg machine washable knitwear.
"We cater to mother, daughter and grand-
mother," said Joan Chiaramonte." For the
younger set, she carries Free People clothing
which this year includes bold designs.

island community since 1974," said Terry Igo, president of the trust company. "My
daughter is currently a student there and she enjoys every minute."

This year, The Sanibel-Captiva Trust Company insisted on sharing the sponsorship

Students Helping

To Build A

Stronger Team
Upper School students in
Canterbury's leadership course
were given the assignment to
make goals. Two of the students "took
the plunge" and made goals pertaining
to their peers on the swim team. And,
results are being seen!
Seniors Yumiko Nakamura and
Conner Hall have been swimming for
many years. Both wanted to help the
team strengthen now and in the future,
so they related goals made for their lead-
ership class to the swim team.
Yumiko's goal was to help 10 girls
learn to improve their strokes and to use
these improvements to help the team dur-
ing meets. Twice a week at swim prac-
tices, Yumiko takes a group of girls and
helps them practice the basics. Then she
gives them tricks to help make swimming
easier. She encourages the girls to prac-
tice, and "before you know it," Yumiko
said, "the girls are full of confidence and
are becoming stronger swimmers."
Coach Jonathan Briggs is seeing
results of Yumiko's work. Three girls have
been practicing for the 100 fly. One of
the swimmers has entered races and one,
who had previously been racing in this
category, has maximized her distance.
Conner has been assisting the boys
on the team to learn different strokes,
broadening skills to strengthen the team.
After practicing and coaching, Conner
races against his students and gives prizes
if they beat him.
Both students, who are swimming
in their last season at Canterbury, hope

Verot Ranked

Among Top 50

Catholic Schools
Bishop Verot Catholic High School
has been named among the
top Catholic high schools in the
nation by an international research and
educational organization. The National
Catholic High School Honor Roll,
an independent project of the Acton
Institute with an advisory board com-
prised of Catholic college presidents
and scholars, has selected Bishop Verot
Catholic High School as one of the best
50 Catholic secondary schools in the
United States.
"We are honored to be named as one
of the top 50 Catholic schools in the
nation," said Bishop Verot Principal John
Cavell. "As a leading college preparatory
school, it is a testament to the commit-
ment of the Verot community to our
mission to be a community of faith and
learning, devoted to educating minds and
The purpose of the Honor Roll is to
recognize and encourage excellence in
Catholic secondary education. It is a criti-
cal resource for parents and educators
that distinguishes those schools that excel
in three categories: academic excellence,
Catholic identity, and civic education. All
Catholic secondary schools were invited
to apply for inclusion in the selection
process. The best schools demonstrate

their work will pay off next year with an
even stronger team.

Catholic culture. Standardized test scores
provided the dominant component of
the academic excellence score along with
data regarding course work, the number
of AP tests students take, and the per-

competency scores. This past school year,
81 percent of Bishop Verot students tak-
ing an AP test scored a 3 or higher with
the opportunity to earn college credit.

heavy focus on culture and the formation
of students in the Catholic faith. Bishop
Verot has a renowned campus ministry

Leggings remain hot items to wear
with long and oversized tops and tunics
for all ages. Pants run from skinny to
wide legged and both seem to work well
with asymmetric tops and jackets. This
season's hues include a lot of gray in its
many tones from light to dark that has
become a popular neutral.

There are three news styles of
Baggallini bags, those lightweight nylon
purses designed by flight attendants with
pockets and compartments for every-
thing a woman needs. My favorite is the
Valencia, which you can wear on your
shoulder or slide over the handle of your
rolling luggage. The bag has an edgy,
updated look with lots of studs and zip-
pers. And they look great with the Why
Knot look. Call 472-3003 for mor infor-

to spray the water hose.
Another visitor, Deputy Mike Sawicki from Sanibel Police Department, came driv-
ing into the CECI parking lot with sirens blaring to show the children all the equipment
in the police car.
Children's librarian Barb Dunkle came from the Sanibel Library for her eagerly
anticipated weekly visit to read Halloween stories and share songs with the children.

Sanibel 8-Ball
Pool League
F resh Legion Crew and Sanibel
Cafe, Sanibel Pool League's third
and fourth place from last year,
gave notice that the 2010-2011 season
will be vastly different by posting 11-5
victories over Bunt's Ball Busters and
the One Ball Wonders.
Captain Tom Hensel and Doc Lubinski
from the Fresh Legion Crew posted per-
fect 4-0 wins in their rout of last year's
champs. Sanibel Cafe also had a perfect
4-0 shooter in Dennis Bender who drove
in from Lehigh Acres to post his wins.

Bender not only brought along his own
cheering section but intimidated his oppo-
nent by wearing his 8-Ball Championship
shirt earned this year in the National
8-Ball Tournament in Las Vegas. Bender
also gave a demonstration of his "perfect
stroke" polished over the years through
training sessions with the game's top
Joe Stahl from the Fresh Legion Crew
also went undefeated winning two games
over Ken Rasi of the Ball Busters. Stahl
attributed his wins to having the opportu-
nity to study and imitate Bender's "per-
fect stroke" and a drastic change in the
position of his flying left elbow.#

Sanibel Youth Soccer
Girls Rule And
Boys Too In
Sanibel Soccer
Sanibel Youth Soccer is a coed league
with girls and boys on each team in
all divisions. This past Friday, how-
ever, teams split up to play boys vs. boys
and girls vs. girls in the U10 and U13
divisions. This was the first of two such
weeks this year and all games counted in
the overall standings.
In U10, the combined Spain and
France teams took on South Africa
and Holland. The Western Europeans
prevailed in both games. As we near
the half-way point of the season France
remains atop the leader board.
In U13 England and Brazil com-
bined to take on Cameroon and Italy.
Elizabeth DePasquale led Cameroon
and Italy to an early lead only to see
England and Brazil come back to force
a tie behind strong play from JJ Roberts
and Autumn DeBarr. In the boys game
the Cameroon/Italy combination exacted
revenge with a 3-0 win.
Meanwhile, the U6 and U8 teams
continued to play coed as usual.
Particularly impressive was a strong
offensive display from Argentina in U8.
Maradona himself would have been
pleased with the goal scoring efforts
of Liam Deal, Hunter Hammarberg,
Stanford Schira and Kyle Mason.
The action continues Friday night at
the city fields on Sanibel-Captiva Road.O

PGA Tips
Bunker Shots
by Matt Oakley,
PGA Golf
SF airway bunker
. shots can real-
ly be difficult
- if you do not have
the proper set-up.
Once you are set-
up correctly it is
actually quite an easy shot, no different
than from the fairway. The key is hitting
the golf ball first, then the sand. Here
are a few tips to get you hitting your
fairway bunker shots onto the green and
next to the pin in no time:
1. Set-up.
a. As you enter the bunker, take notice
of what the sand feels like beneath your
feet. Is it soft or firm? In either case we
want to dig our feet in only a little bit,
just enough to get firm footing, do not
dig like you are trying to reach China! If
you dig yourself too low into the sand you
are more likely to hit the sand first, then
the ball and lose dramatic distance on the
b. Choke down on the club an equal
amount that your feet dug into the sand
(dig down and inch, choke down an inch).
This allows you to hit the ball first, then
the sand. If the club is too long you will
hit the sand first because the club wants
to bottom out too low.

c. Since you are choking down on the
club, take one more club than the dis-
tance of the shot normally requires (if it is
8-iron distance then hit a 7-iron).
d. Place the ball a little further back in
your stance than normal, this allows you
to strike the ball first, then the sand.
2. The Strike.
a. Concentrate on keeping the head
and lower body completely still during the
swing. This creates solid contact (easier
to hit a still target than a moving target).
This swing should feel like it is all shoul-
ders, arms and wrists. The less moving
parts, the less margin of error.
b. Focus your eyes in front of the golf
ball. If you look behind the golf ball you
will probably strike it there and get sand
c. Strike the golf ball, then the sand.
3. The Finish.
a. After the strike, follow through to a
full, balanced finish.
Schedule a lesson with your local PGA
professionals on this important weapon
in your arsenal.0

Golf Ventures supplies golf clubs and individuals with turf and cart-related equip-
ment. Gulf City Solar's kit expands the company's environmentally-friendly offerings.
"We're excited to lead the industry by offering our customers environmentally
friendly options and savings with this new line of solar products," said Golf Ventures
Executive Vice President Walt McMahon. Gulf City Solar's kit is also featured as the
company's product of the month for October.
Unlike other solar kits, Gulf City Solar's kit uses an ultra-light solar panel made of
a flexible, rollable thin film. It can be easily attached to the roof of a golf cart using
the pre-attached heavy duty double-sided tape. It can also be easily removed without
leaving a trace, if necessary. Most kits on the market use heavy glass panels to capture
solar energy and may require a golf cart roof be replaced. Golf City Solar's kit also
operates up to 30 percent more efficiently than other kits.
"Gulf City Solar provides the most advanced solar technology for golf carts today,"
says the company's Executive Vice President Hans Holzmann. "Our kits are light-
weight, sleek, and so powerful that they keep golf carts running even under cloud
cover and rainy conditions."O

Tiny Butler Leaps To Top In
Basketball Marketing And Recruiting
by Ed Frank
, k A t midnight last Friday, basketballs were bouncing in
.. hundreds of college basketball arenas as practice, under
L1� NCAA rules, opened officially for the 2010-2011 sea-
Preseason rankings have defending national champion Duke
riding No. 1 while the Florida Gators are ranked no higher than
No. 13 despite returning nearly the entire team.
Few will forget last season's title game when Duke defeated
..r tiny Butler 61-59 in a thriller that is etched in NCAA history.
Despite the loss, Butler has catapulted into a marketing sensation
and Bulldog coach Brad Stevens, 34, who looks younger than
most of his players, was awarded a 12-year contract extension.
Let's relive for a moment last April's championship game in the Lucas Oil Stadium
in Indianapolis just a 15-minute drive from the Butler campus. With Duke up by two
points and the clock clicking down to zero, Butler's Gordon Hayward launched a
mid-court shot that barely missed - a shot if gone in would have given Butler the title.
Hayward has since gone to the NBA, a first-round pick by the Utah Jazz.
What makes the Butler story so special is the fact that their student athletes also
are student scholars. For example, returning starter Matt Howard, the 2009 Horizon
Player of the Year, is an academic All-American majoring in finance and taking a
course called Applied Portfolio Management.
This course is the real thing as Butler's endowment fund awarded the class $1 mil-
lion to invest. Howard is in the class with teammate Grant Leindecker, and five other
players also have taken the course.
Butler is a school of only 4,000 undergraduate students, but its basketball heroics
have resulted in fame and fortune.
Nike, Pepsi and PNC Bank have signed on as sponsors and more are in the sign-
ing stage. For the first time, CBS will broadcast a Butler game in the famed Hinkle
Fieldhouse on December 18 against Stanford. And all but three Butler games will be
carried by local and national TV outlets.
Five years ago, not a single Butler game was telecast.
The school's high profile has enabled Butler to recruit at the highest levels.
Reportedly one of the nation's top high school players, 6-foot, 10-inch Cody Zeller

of Washington, Indiana, has narrowed his choice between Butler, North Carolina and
Donations to the school are pouring in at record numbers. Improvements to the
football stadium and softball fields were completed at a cost of $2.65 million thanks to
donations by friends, supporters and Butler alumni.
Butler will be returning three starters, Howard, Shelvin Mack and Ronald Nored.
The team is ranked in the top 25 in nearly all polls. Mack, a junior, is another likely
first-round NBA pick should he decide to enter the NBA after this season.
Yes, the story of the Butler Bulldogs basketball team is a feel-good story. Too bad
there aren't more Butlers.
Everblades Open Hockey Season with Split
The Florida Everblades opened the 2010-2011 ECHL season with a split last week-
end against the Gwinnett Gladiators in Germain Arena.
The Everblades took the season opener last Friday defeating Gwinnett 2-1 in an
exciting shootout, but dropped Saturday's game 5-3. More than 6,000 hockey fans
attended each game as interest in minor league hockey in this area remains strong.
The Everblades are on the road this week for three games with Greenville, return-
ing to Germain next Wednesday for a three-game series against Kalamazoo.
Eleven 2010 Ryder Cup Players to Compete Here in Shark Shootout
The 22nd edition of Greg Norman's Shark Shootout, the 10th consecutive year
that it will be played at the Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, will feature 11 golfers who
competed just three weeks ago in the Ryder Cup.
"This might be the most dynamic field we have ever had," said Norman of the
popular event that will be held December 8 to 12. The 24-player field has amassed
154 total career victories.
Steve Stricker, the No. 5 player in the world, and his partner Jerry Kelly, will return
to defend the title they won last year.
The 11 Ryder Cup participants who will be here in addition to Stricker are Stewert
Cink, Darren Clarke, Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Davis Love III,
Graeme McDowell, Jeff Overton, lan Poulter and Bubba Watson.
We will have further details on the 2010 Shark Shootout in the weeks to come.G

Will Power
Do You Have A
Legal Right To Know?
- by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified
Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney, CPA

SO ne ofthe
most com-
mon ques-
tions bouncing
.- around on-line legal
advice forums and
that I hear quite
frequently goes
something like this:
"My Mom named
my sister as her trustee. I think that Sis
is taking all of Mom's money. When I
ask Sis what's going on, she won't tell
me anything. Do I have a legal right to
the information?"
The answer is "it depends." I joke
around that attorneys sell more depends
than Walgreens and CVS combined!
But with most questions, like this one,
the answer really does depend on the
relevant facts of each and every situation.
So in some situations Brother may have
a right to know what Sis is up to, while in
others he may not.
To illustrate my point, let's first make
the assumption that Mom is still alive.
In this case, Brother probably doesn't
have any legal right to information about
Mom's trust and Mom's assets. Mom
named Sis as trustee, or perhaps as a
successor trustee in the event of Mom's
incapacity. Mom has a right to keep
her affairs private. If she has named Sis
as the trustee, then she trusts Sis to act
appropriately and to act in Mom's best
With no oversight it is entirely pos-
sible that Sis is stealing Mom blind. And
revocable trusts, by and large, don't
have any oversight. A benefit to revo-

cable trusts is that they are private and
outside of the court system. That same
benefit might also be called a potential
detriment. Because there is no oversight
on the trustee's activities, she might be
doing things that she ought not be doing.
That's why it is so important for Mom to
carefully consider who she should name
as her trustee. It's extremely difficult for
Brother to legally gather information dur-
ing Mom's life under this set of facts.
It's not until Brother actually becomes
a beneficiary of the trust that Brother has
access to the trust information. Brother
is not technically a beneficiary of the trust
until Mom dies, assuming that Mom has
named Brother as a beneficiary.
In Florida law, there is a defined term
known as a "qualified beneficiary." At the
time of Mom's death, Brother (assuming
he's named in the document) becomes
a "qualified beneficiary" of Mom's trust.
As a qualified beneficiary he has rights
to receive a copy of the trust document,
as well as an inventory and accounting
of trust assets and income. He can also
request an accounting from the time that
Sis became trustee of the trust. That may
have occurred during Mom's lifetime.
Is there a way that Brother can
legally access the trust information during
Mom's life? Under certain circumstances
he might have such rights. If Brother is
named as a co-trustee with Sis, then he
has every right to all of the information.
If Brother suspects wrongdoing on Sis'
part and has a durable power of attor-
ney, Brother may also have the ability
to access the information. As a durable
power of attorney holder, Brother might

be able to gather the information based
on the fact that he is also Mom's fiduciary
and has an obligation to make sure that
her affairs are properly tended to. It's
entirely likely that Brother would have to
go to court to force Sis to disclose the
information. That might be time consum-
ing and expensive.
Brother's attorney's fees might be
paid by the trust if it can be shown that
the legal action was necessary to prevent
Sis from wrongfully taking trust assets, or
that Brother's attorney's work in any way
benefited the trust or Mom.
Let's examine more closely Sis' fidu-
ciary duty to act in Mom's best interests
while Sis is trustee for Mom. What this
means is, if there is a choice between
doing something that benefits Mom or
doing something that might benefit Sis
down the line, Sis is supposed to disre-
gard her own interests and act solely in
the best interests of Mom.
A good example of this is whether Sis
is spending Mom's money for the best
care available, or whether she is getting
second-rate care in order to preserve
more of the estate for herself in the event
of Mom's death. If Mom's assets can
afford a single room in the assisted living
facility but Sis doubles Mom up to save
money, it might be argued that Sis wasn't
acting in Mom's best interests.
Similarly, if Sis is making gifts to her-
self from Mom's assets without regard to
Mom's wishes, this could also be evidence
of Sis not acting in a fiduciary capacity.
As you might imagine, these types
of allegations are hard to prove. There
are always two sides to every coin. What
may appear on its face to be improper
conduct may eventually appear to have a
valid purpose behind it.
In order to avoid these types of
conflicts, Mom might consider naming
co-trustees. There was probably a good
reason that Mom named Sis and not
Brother as trustee. Assuming that Mom

doesn't want to name Brother, she could
name a bank, trust company or even a
trusted professional such as Mom's CPA
to serve as a co-trustee. Whenever there
is an independent third party acting and
looking over the shoulder of the family
trustee, the likelihood of malfeasance is
greatly minimized.
In any event, when considering your
duties as trustee for another, you should
always ask yourself whether, if what you
are doing is brought to light, someone
might accuse you of acting improperly.
It's a fine line sometimes.

Tackle Energy
Vampires And
Phantom Loads
by Laura Zocki
LCEC Public
Relations Specialist
lhat bet-
n ter time
V to tackle
energy vampires
and phantom loads
than during the
month of October.
Don't worry, these
vampires and phantoms don't have
sharp teeth, nor do they fly around
making scary noises. Electrically speak-
ing, they mean the same thing.
These terms are meant to describe
appliances and electronics that are left
plugged in even when they are not in
use. These items literally drain electric-
ity all day, every day. Even scarier than
the idea of these energy villains is the
fact that most Americans have at least
20 energy vampires or phantom loads
in their home right now. Although these
vampires only add pennies to your elec-
tric bill, awareness and conservation will
make an impact on both your change
purse and your carbon footprint.
Are you ready to tackle these little
monsters, no garlic necessary? Simply
unplug items such as coffee makers,
phone chargers and radios when you are
not using them. Whether you are going
on vacation or just to work, unplug any
appliances and electronics that do not
need to be plugged in. You may want
to invest in an energy-efficient power
strip which can help you easily switch off
items when they are not in use.
If everyone in the nation tackled the
energy vampires in their home, it would
make a huge impact on our carbon foot-

Protect Your
by Bryan Hayes
Shat is
the #1
S cause of
. downtime for your
,* \ central cooling and
heating system?
Contrary to popu-
lar belief, it is not
refrigerant based
problems. As a side
note, I know this is
what you all talk about with your spouse
on the weekends, but I won't tell.
Back to the subject at hand. The num-
ber #1 reason for down time is electrical
in nature. With the average home having
over 300 surges per year, you can see
how this could be a problem. Especially
out here on Sanibel, it is a constant battle
for our power company to keep the grid
in good working order. Many major
home appliances, including your a/c, rely

more on solid state electronics to operate
than ever before. This is a good thing but
it comes with a price. These controls are
more susceptible to power fluctuations
than ever before.
Back to the title of this article; the way
to protect your investment is through
surge protection. Surge protection can
be achieved many different ways. You
can buy those little surge protection
strips for your pluggable appliances. For
the larger stuff such as your a/c you are
going to need to have installed an inline
surge protection on the electrical feed.
This will help protect your very expensive
investment. You can take this all one step
further and have a whole house surge
protection system installed that will cover
all the circuits in your home.
So with a little bit of investment you
could save a bundle if your home is

VCB Earns Top Award
For Destination Marketing
T he Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau (VCB) earned one Henry Award,
the highest award for imaginative destination marketing at the 43rd annual
Governor's Conference on Tourism Flagler Awards Competition September
27 in Orlando. The VCB has the distinction of acquiring 23 Henry Awards since
the competition began in 1999.
Sponsored by Visit Florida, the official marketing organization for Florida tourism
and the Florida Commission on Tourism, the Flagler Awards program is designed to
acknowledge the outstanding marketing achievements of the state's tourism-related
businesses, destinations, attractions, and other entities. Five out-of-state tourism-mar-
keting authorities judged the competition's nearly 136 entries in 15 categories.
The VCB was honored with a Henry Award in the Magazine category. Due to
a dramatic increase in competition by other Florida "sun" destinations, the VCB
conducted an Attitude Awareness and Usage study to better understand consumers'
perceptions of The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel brand. This research confirmed
the sameness in messages from beach destinations, therefore, in 2009, the VCB intro-
duced a variety of print ads to distinctly build brand awareness and differentiate The
Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel as the only Florida vacation destination to offer an
"unspoiled island sanctuary," with a safe place to nurture and revitalize relationships
with nature, your family, and yourself. Consumers requesting destination vacation
materials driven primarily from print advertisements were up 14 percent in 2009 over
"We are grateful to be acknowledged by Visit Florida and the tourism industry for
our bureau's marketing efforts over the years," said VCB Executive Director Tamara
Pigott. "The outstanding work of our staff and the VCB's advertising agency, BVK of
Fort Myers is to be commended."4

Back To
Beautiful The
Master Bedroom
by Cindy Malszycki
often the
room in the
house that
e ^ is put on the back
burner for decorat-
ing attention is the
master bedroom.
This should be
regarded as your
personal getaway
space, so design
it to please only you and express your
favorite colors, feelings, and collections.
Invest in a luxury touch here and there -
beautiful bed linens or a four-poster bed,
for example. Everyone needs a retreat
in this busy world that we live in.
Choose soothing shades and a restful
palate of monochromatic tones, not bold
primary colors. Gentle hues of blue, lav-
ender, or green are considered calm and
serene. Set the mood for coziness and
comfort with rich jewel-toned hues. These
might include toasty browns, deep pome-
granate, or topaz. Use toned-downed ver-
sions of your favorite colors.
The bed is usually the focal point of
a bedroom, so dress it up with attractive
bedding, including comfortable throw pil-

Water Claims
by Marge Meek
W ith many
of our

returning, homes
S* and condos are
� / being opened up
and this past week
the phone calls
with the cry, "I
have water all over
my floor" have
increased exponentially. It is time to really
look around your home and prevent water
One of the main culprits is water
heater failure. Even though it is only a
matter of hours before the problem is dis-
covered, the damage to the floors and fur-
niture is extensive and the inconvenience
immense. Our climate tends to diminish
the longevity of our appliances, so replace
an aging water heater before you have a
water disaster. If your water heater is over
10 years old, you have had good luck,
and replace a relatively low cost appli-
Another area for potential water dam-
age involves the connections around items
like sinks, toilets and washing machines.
When you turn the water on after hav-
ing been gone all summer, see if the area
around the connections stays dry. Water

headboard, a canopy suspended from
the ceiling and arranged with coordinat-
ing fabrics or a nicely framed paring or
print can serve as a focal point.
The ceiling in a room is often referred
to as the "fifth wall." Wouldn't it be nice
to lie in bed and see a subtle pattern or
soft color on the ceiling, creating a feeling
of comfort and intimacy?
To prevent being awakened at first
light, window treatments should be
room darkening. If you install lightweight
drapes, use shades or blinds underneath
for controlling the light. A beautifully
dressed window helps frame the window
and provides other ways to add color,
pattern, texture, and softness to the bed-
It is good to layer your lighting
throughout the room. Ambient lighting
lights the whole room. You might want
to consider installing a ceiling fan/light
combination, an asset on warm nights.
Small lamps focus light for reading and
other activities.
You will cherish this room you have
created just for you to relax and renew.

home until you are certain your connec-

Does your washing machine still have
the black rubber original equipment hose?
About 50 pounds of water pressure
is pushing on that hose whether your
machine is running or not. Even if you
shut off the water when you are gone for
long periods of time, rubber is susceptible
to dry rot. Any weakness in the rubber
creates a bulge which can eventually
rupture and potentially cause tremendous
damage. Change it out to a braided stain-
less steel, no-burst washing machine hose
and to go further by adding an electronic
valve to automatically shut off the water.
Condominium owners beware: your
potential problem extends to more than
what happens in your unit. If another
owner's water leak seeps into your apart-
ment, you and your insurance company
are responsible for the damage. Be sure
your association has a mandatory replace-
ment of the items that can create water
Claims for water damage easily run up
to $20,000 and higher, plus you could
have the inconvenience of moving to a
motel while the disaster is being cleaned
up. If you do have water damage, remem-
ber, it is your responsibility to do what you
can to secure your property immediately.
Call your agent and be sure to take pic-
tures to show the claims adjuster.

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
by Constance
Q: I work for a
small PR company
and I have been
with them for seven
years. I have seen
colleagues get sig-
nificant raises and I
have yet to get one
and I have been
there longer than
they have. What should I do?
A: It sounds as though you need
to make a list of steps you can take to
improve your job prospects for being
promoted and to get that raise. Make
a list of questions and ask your boss to
schedule a time for you to meet to discuss
your future with the company. You also
may want to research other companies
and see if there is better room to grow as
you do have the experience now and the
potential to grow with another company.


If your boss is not willing to be more
invested in you, then it may be time to
seek out other companies that have more
to offer.
Be willing to take the risk and believe
in your abilities to be the best you can be
at trying something new. Show your con-
fidence and don't settle for less when you
deserve more.
Dr Clancy is a licensed mental
health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public
speaker You may email Dr Connie at

The 2011 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure will be held on March 12 at
Coconut Point Mall in Estero and online registration is now open. The early
registration gives teams and individuals added time to raise funds to support
the fight against breast cancer.
As an incentive, those who register from October 1 through February 25 will have
their race day packets mailed to them free of charge. Race day packets include a race
T-shirt, bib with race participant number, schedule, parking information and map.
Those who register after February 25 can pick up their packets at designated pick-up
sites or on race day. Registration is available online at www.Komenswfl.org.
The race is a sanctioned 5K event that also includes a non-competitive 5K run/
walk and a one-mile fun run/walk. More than 9,600 participants and 398 teams
participated in the 2010 Southwest Florida Race for the Cure allowing the Southwest
Florida affiliate to make grants totaling more than $821,000 to 11 local non-profit
organizations that provide education, screening, treatment and support in Lee, Collier,
Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties.
Seventy five percent of all net proceeds from the Southwest Florida Race for the
Cure stay in Southwest Florida and 25 percent of proceeds are given to national
research programs. Since 2002, the Southwest Florida affiliate has given more than
$3.7 million to local non-profit organizations.

Now Can Access
Utah Database
Tracing your family's history
has just become more conve-
nient. Genealogy researchers in
Southwest Florida will now be able to
take advantage of the vast historical and
genealogical resources of the Family
History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Fort Myers-Lee County Public
Library has been granted FamilySearch
Library Affiliate status, which means that
library patrons will have access to the
microfilm collection of the largest genea-
logical library in the world.
In cooperation with the Salt Lake facil-
ity, the library is preparing to launch a
microfilm rental program that will enable
researchers to order filmed records from
all over the world. Instead of traveling
to do research in the areas where their
ancestors lived, genealogists can visit the
library and, by appointment, receive help
with placing an order for microfilm cover-
ing a wide variety of record types.
Depending on the research being
done, a genealogist might choose to
order films of vital records, cemetery
records, military or probate records-for
a processing and handling fee of $5.50
per film.
The Family History Library's micro-
form materials - including microfiche,
microfilm and other storage formats - are
stored in a climate-controlled vault in the
Granite Mountain, a mass of solid rock in
the Wasatch Range of Utah. After library
staff processes the order, there is a wait-
ing period of three to four weeks, as the
film must be sent by mail from Salt Lake
City. The patron is notified when the film

Films may be used in the Fort Myers
Library only and can be renewed, if nec-
essary for an additional fee. During the
viewing time, researchers may make pho-
tocopies of selected portions of the film
or save the record to their flash drive.
Researchers must come to the Fort
Myers-Lee County Library by appoint-
ment to place an order, as the rental
fee must accompany the film order.
Appointments may be made at the Fort
Myers Library at 2050 Central Avenue in
Fort Myers or by calling 479-4636.4

Have A Heart,
Make A Donation
At Baileyfest
by Megan Lucker
T wo years ago I was attending 8th
grade at The Sanibel School. It
was the morning of the FCAT. I
slurred my words, couldn't walk straight,
and was experiencing double vision. I
would forget conversations seconds after
they occurred and had trouble speaking.
At the hospital, the doctor's said I'd
had a stroke. I was 14 years old. I'd
inherited Thrombophilia, a blood clotting
disorder, and a blood clot had reached
my brain. The doctors believe the clot
reached my brain through an opening in
a flap between the upper two chambers
of my heart. That summer, I had a device
placed to close that opening, called a
