Campaign To Buy Bailey Homestead

The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) held a kickoff event on
October 28 to announce its $5.3 million fundraising campaign, the corner-
stone of which is the purchase the 28.3-acre Bailey homestead property on
Located near the intersection of Periwinkle and Donax, the property features 1,030
feet of frontage on Periwinkle and over 28 acres of habitat for bobcats, gopher tor-

The launch of the campaign
With the property zoned for 36 homes, its acquisition will prevent development
along Periwinkle Way, near the entryway to Sanibel and Captiva.
The campaign, if it can meet the June 24 deadline, will preserve a piece of Sanibel
history: the original home of the Bailey family, built in 1896, where Sam Bailey was
born and Francis Bailey raised his children. It is one of only 10 homes on the City of
Sanibel's Register of Historic Landmarks. "Every time a new baby was born, a new
room was added," said Francis Bailey.
SCCF President Bill Fenniman welcomed the 50 guests, which included six for-
mer Sanibel mayors, representatives of the Captiva Community Panel, and Sanibel
City Manager Judie Zimomra. He announced the three campaign co-chairs: Janie
Howland, John LaGorce, and Chip Lesch. The campaign is titled Honoring the Past -
Protecting the Future.

East End Canal
By Jim George
East end canal residents who hear
a knock on the door soon will
not find the tax man but rather
a neighbor circulating a petition to
establish a new taxing district to fund
the periodic dredging of the east end
canal system. After many years of ad
hoc financing of the dredging of canals,
a group of residents has finally banded
together to establish a system of financ-
ing the work. Heretofore, the project,
which is necessary about every three or
four years at a cost of $30,000, includ-
ed only those people who were willing
to contribute. A taxing district will assess
everyone the same amount with the
exception of the Sanibel Marina.
Proponents of the taxing district,
led by Dick McNeil, president of the
Shell Harbor Homeowners Association,
have to meet a hurdle set by the City of
Sanibel: a majority of homeowners have
to agree to the taxing district. The task
will be easier than in the past, however,
since Sanibel City Council has lowered
the bar from 80 percent to a simple
majority (51 percent) of residents. Under
the agreement with the city, the cost will
be split between the city (33 percent),
Sanibel Marina (40 percent) and the resi-
dents (27 percent). The residents' portion
will amount to $20 annually per share. A
share is defined as a single family home
on the canal, a vacant lot, a mooring
and/or slip or a multi-family unit with
each unit representing a share. The city
sources the funds and the taxing district
assessment pays off the loan over five

been extremely cooperative is assisting

Thank You Sanibel!! a
You started something. You financed and created a .
campaign of hundreds of people spanning the political
spectrum across Lee County - people who just want to \
solve important local problems!
We want OUR county government to focus on the people
it serves, not on protecting the bureaucracy and politics-
Our world has changed. To thrive and survive our
increasing fuel costs, new energy options, pollution, climate-change, and recession
of monumental local impact - government, business, non-profits, media and
individuals must work together. 37,000 Lee County people are job hunting. 600,000
pay too much county tax for too few services.
Together we can stop over-taxing and protect core services, utilize retiree talents to attract
new employers, help our small businesses survive and thrive. We can shift to tomorrow's
economy while protecting our environment and the quality of life that makes our west coast
unique. Public service requires actions, not words to make a difference for taxpayers."
"All politics is local," and all solutions start at home with participants, not spectators.
Please, keep participating.
Sanibel, I thank you for caring!

Bath, who had served on the board as
treasurer from 2007 to 2009, moved to
Sanibel in 2000 with his wife, Gillian. He
has been active in CROW, FISH, Sanibel-

in the Dunbar community, where there are
high rates of unemployment and poverty.
Prior to moving to Sanibel, Bath spent
33 years with Procter and Gamble, where
he held positions as director of product
development and product research manag-
er. He and his wife also owned and ran an
active, 80-acre equestrian center in Oxford,

Bob Wimbush and Donna Mutzenard
submitted by Eric Pfeifer
T 7 iwanians have so few heroes
(other than Dick Muench, of
course), so last week it was
refreshing to hear from one Kiwanian's
hero, Donna Mutzenard, execu-
tive director of Island Coast Florida
Education Association, the local teach-
ers' union. Mutzenard was credited with
a leadership role in maintaining labor
harmony in the Lee School District
and with the successes at Tropic Isles
Elementary School which has risen from
arguably the lowest in the district to last
year's only educational winner of the
Governor's Sterling Award. Tropic Isles
also has become one of the few Glasser
Quality Schools in the world, and has
made annual yearly progress under the
No Child Left Behind Act more times
than any other school in the district.
Donna Mutzenard has been instrumental
239-72-T NI (464
in encouraging and supporting these
ideas to spread to other schools.
She was happy to announce that over
90 percent of teachers have approved a
labor agreement with the district that is
awaiting approval of the board.
What leads to classroom success?
Many things including the intelligent and
extensive use of data, good teachers and
engaged parents. What is the union's take
on Proposal 8, class size? It puts more
kids in class but does not remove the
problem of having to add a teacher and a
classroom when the limit is exceeded by
one. It takes the problem it is intended to
fix and moves it up the line, but adds no
Teacher tenure was a hot item.
Basically, Mutzenard favors removing
underperforming teachers for cause, and
there are recently instated procedures,
including 90 days of remediation, for
dealing with the situation. Several reme-
diations are in the works now. She favors
merit pay, but has found no satisfactory
means of discerning merit. Class and
school composition are uncontrollable
factors. A good education about educa-
tion. No one left early.
This week we heard a truly remark-
able story from Stella Farwell, a Captiva
resident who successfully battled ovar-
ian cancer. She is now a "one person
campaign" for ovarian cancer, helping
to educate people about the silent killer.
Among her many accolades, Farwell is
from "N'awlins," she has skydived, she
has been a firefighter and she is also the
past president (and first female president)
of the Captiva Civic Association.
One in 58 women will have ovarian
cancer, and there are no obvious symp-
toms. Women who experience bloating,
abdominal pain or have a history of can-
cer in their families should get a physical
exam to check for this type of cancer.
There is no national organization publiciz-
ing the severity of this disease, and once
one gets to stage three, there is only a
29 percent survival rate. Thank goodness
Farwell beat the odds and is personally
making a difference in the world.
Her goal is to help at least one per-
son not make the same journey she had
to make. She is also a wonderful artist,
and she shared many of her projects in
a DVD showing how art can be very
therapeutic and rewarding while battling

James Cardle, Janet Strichland and John
submitted by Shirley Jewell
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club
welcomed three new members this
week: James Cardle, patent attor-
ney; Janet Stickland, real estate attor-
ney, and John Harries, MD, surgeon.
All of our present committee chairs
might take note of this impressive trio
and recruit them for the club's current
and long-term projects.
Since we are on the subject of Rotary
membership, anyone interested in finding
out more about Rotary International and
our local and global projects should drop
by our information table at Celebrate
Sanibel. The keynote event this year
is the annual island club/organization
presentation to the public on Sunday,
November 7, from noon to 3 p.m. with
special guest speaker Charles LeBuff dis-
cussing My Life on Sanybel from 1 to 2
p.m. Free sandwiches and iced tea will be
available after the talk. This takes place at
the historic Sanibel Community Center,
located at 2173 Periwinkle Way. To date,
16 clubs and organizations will be partici-
pating, and more are expected to follow.
Before getting to our guest speaker
last week, just a few notes from club
* John Grey has been following the
club's involvement with Teddy Makes It
"Bear" Able with the Pensacola West
Rotary Club. John informed club mem-
bers that the teddy bears have been
ordered but delivery date has not been
confirmed. Just some information about
this special Rotary project: How many
times have you seen in person or on tele-
vision news, children who have just been
involved in an accident or incident that
has potential psychological repercussions?
How many times have you wondered
about the impact upon those children?
Many organizations have begun arm-
ing police officers and firefighters with
stuffed animals to give children in times
of distress. Teddy bears are distributed
to first responders (local police, firefight-
ers, and sheriff's deputies) to keep in
their vehicles. These bears will be given
to comfort children who may have been
traumatized. Distribution points will be
* Tony Gropp announced that we
have received 230 requests from artists
and craftsmen all over the country to
enter this year's juried Rotary Arts and
Crafts Fair. The judging committee will
now review all material and make its
selections for the upcoming fair on valen-
tine weekend at the Sanibel Community
Now, on to our speaker last week:
Let's play ball!
How many of us get to live our child-
hood dreams? I doubt many of us do
without modifying that dream just a little
or maybe a great deal. Well in the case
of Fred Pollier, he dreamt about becom-
ing a professional athlete and this athletic
young man from Norwin, Pennsylvania,
got to live that dream, at least for three
Fred credits his success in baseball to
growing up in a supportive community
with interested and vested coaches, a
strong faith, and no doubt-although he
didn't mention it-probably more than a
wee bit of athletic talent.
He must have shown that talent early
on, possibly as early as nine years old,
playing with his Little League baseball
team. He remembers that, like many
young sports teams in the 1950s, his
Little League team was sponsored by a
local service club and the team coaches
were service club members. Fred learned
about baseball and essential character
building skills from these men. He lived in
a small community of 5,000 people then,
but Fred said, "there was a lot of interest
in its young people."
From Little League to the Big
Leagues. Are you curious yet about
who Fred played for? You'll learn soon
Straight through grammar school
to high school, this young man was an
athletic standout. Fred knew he wanted
to play college baseball, so his selection
came from knowing, "Go south young
man, go south." That way Fred could
play a longer baseball season. Duke
University was his choice and during
one of those summers at college he was
asked to join the The Cape Cod Baseball
League (CCBL), a premiere collegiate
summer baseball league in Massachusetts.
Many Major League Baseball players
started there during their college years,
and so it was with Fred Pollier. After
graduating from Duke University, Fred
was drafted by the New York Yankees
and got to play for the New York
Yankees minor league team in Lake

RICHARD F. ALDRICH
Richard F. Aldrich, born January
18, 1947 in Syracuse, New York,
died October 22, 2010 surround-
ed by his wife, Donna, loving friends
He was a friend to many, and an
enemy to pretense. He would do any-
thing for you; but his shirts were usually
too large to allow him to give you the
shirt off his back. His humor was a little
off center, but he made us laugh. There
were often little remarks that made us
think about the joke or aside long after it
Diane Short, former Lee County
Visitor & Convention Bureau
employee, lost her14-year battle
With her effervescent personality,
Short promoted The Beaches of Fort
Myers & Sanibel with people worldwide
in her role as international sales manager
for the VCB. She knew no strangers as
she told people about this area. She will
be remembered for her energy, courage,
colorful personality and warm Southern
charm in the tourism world and beyond.
was first spoken. Dick exuded warmth in
his reserved way, often hanging on the
sidelines until just the right time to toss
out a zinger.
His childhood was filled with family
and friends. He often regaled us with
stories of, perhaps, disorderly escapades
of his youth. Dick was our go-to man for
any trivia, be it TV, radio, movies or just
plain silliness. He remembered numbers,
codes, names and dates.
Miami of Ohio University educated
and trained him well as an engineer. He
created his own unique personality.
He was an active member of Sanibel-
Captiva Rotary Club. It and its members
were dear to his heart. He served in
many official capacities and was a willing
and loved ambassador to the organiza-
tion. He achieved perfect attendance for
20 years. In recognition of his dedica-
tion, leadership and years of service,
the Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva has
established and endowed the Richard F.
Aldrich Scholarship for local students.
Dick is survived by his soul mate,
Donna, and many loving nieces, neph-
ews, aunts and in-laws. He is also sur-
vived by countless best friends. His friend-
ship and camaraderie were legend. His
spirit will continue to reach out and touch
all of us. We will sorely miss him.
Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club will host a
celebration of his life on Friday, January
7 at a time and place to be announced.
Donations may be made to the Sanibel-
Captiva Rotary Trust Fund (Richard
F. Aldrich Scholarship), PO Box 686,

She started at the VCB in 1992 after
stints in the industry with Eastern Airlines
in Tampa, Innisbrook Golf Resort in
Tarpon Springs, and the Sundial Beach
Resort on Sanibel. She tirelessly covered
the globe in her work to promote tourism
to Lee County. She retired from the VCB
in April 2008.
During her 25-plus years in the indus-
try, she was very active in the Hospitality
Sales and Marketing Association
International, Receptive Services
Association of America, Florida Beaches
Coalition and various Visit USA commit-
tees in Europe.
Short is survived by her husband of 47
years, Jerry Short, children Renae Seiler
(Curt) and Cliff Short, and two grandsons.
Services were held on Saturday, October

memorial service is to be held in Fort

DONN A. DAUS
On November 1, 2010, Donn
A. Daus's year-long battle with
cancer came to an end and he
left his home in Fort Myers to make his
tee time at the ultimate golf course in
Donn moved on to many more rounds
of golf up above with no concerns about
weather, sand traps, high winds, trees,
club-choking rough, or bumpy greens. He
leaves his trusty persimmon driver and his
well worn irons and putter behind with
his lovely wife and best friend, Julie. She
has instructions to send them up if his
game ever falters.
Donn Daus entered this world on
May 12, 1942, in Cleveland, Ohio. He
was the son of Harry and Alberta Daus.
Although he never owned up to it his
middle name came from his mom.
Donn excelled in golf in high school
and as a student athlete at Rollins College
from 1961 to 1965 in Winter Park,
From 1970 to1972 he was named
Champion of Champions by the
Northern Ohio Golf Association for his
prowess on the links. He also was a
qualifier for the U.S. Open several times.
When often asked why he hadn't turned
pro Donn would reply with the smile,
"Couldn't see too well and putted worse!"
This was demonstrated before his golfing
buddies when one year as he was lead-
ing the Pabst Blue Ribbon Open at Fort
Myers Country Club. He lost the lead
when he aimed and putted his ball at a
brown spot on the green rather that to
the cup which was slightly hidden some
20 feet away.
With a partner, "Downtown" Randy
Brown, Donn won Florida's Amateur
Four-Ball Championship in the mid-
seventies. It was Brown that gave him his
moniker "Doctor Daus", because he was
"like a surgeon on the greens. He cut
them up with precision."
Donn also won the Northwest
Invitational in Hibbing, Minnesota in
1980, rallying from two down with two
to go to win the title on the third extra
hole. The Calcutta provided a large pay-
off that year which, as usual, Donn and
his investors utilized to throw a big party
at the Mesaba Country Club.
After a successful career in commer-
cial real estate in Cleveland, Donn came
to Sanibel Island in 1974 for Christmas
vacation and never left.
He continued in real estate on Sanibel
first with Priscilla Murphy Realty and then
as sales manager of Executive Services,
Inc. During Florida's last real estate
boom he also provided his sales manager
expertise to Wildcat Run in Estero, The
Sanctuary on Sanibel, and Harbour Isle
and Harbour Castle in Fort Myers. He
was a partner in Out Island Properties,
Inc. and Hexagon Development when
it finalized the buildout of Boca Grande
North on Gasparilla Island. He also
founded and served as broker for his own
company which he proudly named and
recorded as The Real Estate Company.
Donn leaves behind his loving wife,
Julie; sister, Jean Krauss of Kirtland,
Ohio; son, Keye Daus of Cleveland,
Ohio; brothers-in-law, Tom Wesendorf
of Fort Myers, and Chris Wesendorf of
Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin; daughter-
in-law, Lynne Daus and granddaugh-
ters, Jordan and McKenna Daus, all of
Cleveland, Ohio, and the many friends he
made both on the golf course and off.
Donn never met a stranger and was a
"friend of the world." He will be remem-
bered for his love of golf and boating, his
jokes both practical and otherwise, his
bad bar tricks, his mastery of the game of
cribbage, and his never ending sense of
There will be a Memorial Service

ducing GPS (Ground Positioning Systems)
and GPS course plotters.
A chart is like a roadmap over water
but shows those things below the water
that can damage your boat. GPS tells
you where you are on the water (and also
can tell you where you have been). You
then determine where you wish to go and
using your chart determine the latitude
and longitude and enter that in your GPS.
As there may be hazards to avoid in
heading to your destination, you adjust
your course to work around those haz-
ards by selecting intermediate points
called "waypoints" You enter the latitude

into your GPS. Your GPS or GPS plotter

"He had a chunk

amazing they survive at all."

Not surprisingly, the cooter did not
feel like doing much the first few days,

under a heat lamp. Sometimes he would

They kept a close eye on him, and on
August 13 transferred him to the Reptile
Room on the ground floor of the hos-
pital. With the gurgling noise resolved,
staff introduced him to deeper water in
a bathtub. He did well in the tub, though
showed no ability to dive. Often trauma
will cause air to become trapped within
the body cavity and can severely limit a
turtle's ability to submerge. His diet was
smelt and lettuce.
On August 27 the cooter was look-
ing frisky enough to make a trip to the
900-gallon salt water tank in the sea
turtle complex. He thrived in the new
space, which featured a resting area on
top of the water and palm fronds at the
bottom to hide in. However, he still could
not find his diving legs.
"It was just a matter of having
patience and giving him the time he
needed to do his own physical therapy
and work the air out," said Dr. Amber.
At last, on October 30, staff reported
seeing him swim to the bottom of the
tank and staying submerged without

Osprey Presentation At CROW

O spreys are large,
brown and white
hawks that subsist
on live fish. Unlike most
birds, they nest right out in
the open. In order to spot
potential predators, they
build their nests on high
platforms, in the tops of tall
trees, on channel markers in
the bay, and, occasionally, in

tors to Sanibel. But ospreys
provide more than free entertainment. They are important indicators of the health of
our local waters.
On Thursday, November 11, as part of Celebrate Sanibel, the Clinic for the
Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) will celebrate Sanibel's ospreys in a one-hour pre-
sentation starting at 2 p.m.
Each member of the audience will receive a free copy of the educational coloring
book Look Who's Flying, which depicts a young osprey learning to fly. Illustrator
Dave Horton will be on hand to sign the books.
Because Sanibel is home to more than a hundred pairs of ospreys, photographers
flock to our sanctuary island in hopes of capturing prize-winning shots. To view some
of these photos, and to learn more about our fascinating fish hawks, join Claudia

ew gardening enterprises are as
rewarding as butterfly gardening-
and the formula is fairly simple,
according Joyce Sanders, manager
of the butterfly conservatory at the
Butterfly Estates in downtown Fort
To produce a butterfly nursery, plant
host and nectar plants in the right places,
usually in full sun. Choose a spot that will
be protected from pesticides. Buffer the
butterfly zone from rain and wind with
borders of tall grasses, ferns, and shrubs.
Pruning can be beneficial to promote
growth if done properly and at the right
time, Sanders said. However, if the timing
is wrong, the eggs might be cut off the
plant or the nectar sources eliminated.
She recommended never pruning
more than one-third of a butterfly gar-
den at one time. The conservatory staff
knows on which part of the plants but-
terflies lay their eggs and can therefore
advise gardeners about how to prune
properly. Indiscriminate hedge-trimming
probably isn't the way to go.
Pipevine swallowtail's beauty makes it
well worth the effort of butterfly garden-
ing. It has a wingspan of up to 3-1/2
inches. This black butterfly has hindwings
of a beautiful greenish blue color and a
row of orange dots on the undersides of

In the case of the pipevine swallowtail
butterfly, Virginia snakeroot (Aristolochia

Dutchman's pipevine (Aristolochia ele-
gans or Aristolochia gigantean) are the
required host plants.
The pipevine swallowtail female lays
eggs after mating, actually gluing them
on the tender part of the stems, said
When the tiny caterpillars hatch, they

They consume the egg shells and
proceed to gang feed on the pipeline,
maturing through several stages or
instars, complete with molting.
In the last stage, the caterpillar selects
a pupation site, spins a silk attachment,
and spins a securing loop that resembles
a rock-climber's harness.
Joyce Sanders, manager of the conservatory at the Butterfly Estates, points out caterpil-
lar hatchlings on a passionvine. To ensure that these tiny creatures evolve to the butterfly
stage, gardeners need to exercise caution when pruning and to avoid using pesticides
Then it transforms into a pupa, or
chrysalis stage. Unlike most other cater-
pillars, however, pipevine swallowtails do
not remain on the host plant, but pupates

On lower tides, to mix it up
a little, I have been doing some
sight-fishing for bull sharks.
These bulls move up into really
shallow water chasing the big
mullet schools and can be spot-

away. Shallow grass flats off
Rocky Channel and around
Buck Key have both held good
numbers of these shallow water
bruisers. A chunk of fresh cut
bait, a steel leader and a circle
hook is all you need to get
in on this action. Once you
locate a finning shark, simply
throw a chunk of bait out in
front of where the shark is
working. Then watch till the
shark eats your bait - and hold
on. Hooking these big sharks,
sometimes in only a foot of
water, is a blast.

study of how people of a particular cul-

plants in their daily life. Long before
recorded history people used plants as
potions and medicines.
Babylonian cuneiform tablets and
Egyptian papyrus scrolls describe medici-
nal properties of various plants 4,000
years ago. Plants have been and are still
used for food, shelter, medicine, clothing,
poisons, dyes and in hunting and religious
ceremonies. Many modern classes of
drugs - cardiac, antibiotics, arthritis and
pain relievers, fertility drugs and chemo-
therapy agents were originally derived
from plant material and later synthesized

their knowledge of beneficial plants. This
allows them to preserve their culture and
the forests rather than clear-cutting the
land to grow crops or create pasture for
grazing animals. Hopefully this trend will
decrease the accelerating loss of our rain
forests to loggers and commercial planta-
tion operations and allow ethnobotanists
the opportunity to discover new substanc-
es for medical and health uses.

living here or just passing through, can have a better island experience if we are able
to do this."
Giattini announced they have raised $750,000 towards the goal and said major

Bailey finished the ceremony by giving a short talk about highlights in the property's
history, after which everyone walked down a cleared path to see the famous old house

Not for Monday Night Films:
A Matinee Series At BIG ARTS
Film poster for The Most Dangerous Man in
BIG ARTS Film Society presents the Not for Monday Night Series - a melange
of controversial, serious, and sometimes funny films and documentaries. The
series includes an introduction and discussion of each film led by long-time
film buff Hyde Tucker.
All Not for Monday Night films begin at 1 p.m. Admission is $5.
The films are: November 10,Casino Jack and The United States of Money
(2010) U.S.; rated R.
Scene from The White Ribbon
November 17, The Most Dangerous Man in America (2009) U.S.; not rated.
November 24, The White Ribbon (2009) Germany, rated R; subtitles.
Casino Jack and the United States of Money is a portrait of Washington super
lobbyist Jack Abramoff from his early years as a gung-ho member of the GOP political
machine to his final reckoning as a disgraced, imprisoned pariah. A tale of interna-
tional intrigue with Indian casinos, Russian spies, Chinese sweatshops, and a mob-style
killing in Miami, this is the story of the way money corrupts the political process, and
undermines American democracy. Casino Jack was nominated for Grand Jury Prize
at the Sundance Film Festival.
Enhanced by surround sound, films will be shown in the Schein Performance Hall,
with a high-definition projection system and large screen to provide a superb cinematic
presentation. Listening devices are available for the hearing impaired.

features on the front page of The New

FOR WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your hon-
esty continues to impress everyone who needs
reassurance about a project. But be careful you
don't lose patience with those who are still not
ready to act.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Pushing
others too hard to do things your way could
cause resentment and raise more doubts.
Instead, take more time to explain why your
methods will work.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be more
considerate of those close to you before making
a decision that could have a serious effect on
their lives. Explain your intentions and ask for
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might
have to defend a workplace decision you plan
to make. Colleagues might back you up on this,
but it's the facts that will ultimately win the day
for you. Good luck.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Big Cat's
co-workers might not be doing enough to help
get that project finished. Your roars might stir
things up, but gentle purrr-suasion will prove to
be more effective.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Someone you care for needs help with a prob-
lem. Give it lovingly and without judging the
situation. Whatever you feel you should know
will be revealed later.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
While you're to be admired for how you han-
dled recent workplace problems, be careful not
to react the same way to a new situation until all
the facts are in.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Rely on your keen instincts as well as the facts
at hand when dealing with a troubling situation.
Be patient. Take things one step at a time as you
work through it.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Your curiosity leads you to ask
questions. However, the answers might not be
what you hoped to hear. Don't reject them with-
out checking them out.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Be careful not to tackle a problem without
sufficient facts. Even sure-footed Goats need
to know where they'll land before leaping off a
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Appearances can be deceiving. You need to do
more investigating before investing your time,
let alone your money, in something that might
have some hidden flaws.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your
recent stand on an issue could make you the
focus of more attention than you would like.
But you'll regain your privacy, as well as more
time with loved ones, by week's end.

TF he BIG
, ARTS film
I for Monday
night, November 8,
The Ramen Girl,
is set in Tokyo. It
stars late actress
as Abby, a young
unexpectedly stranded in this Japanese
city. She finds, as many of us do alone
in foreign places, refuge in the cozy
warmth of a neighborhood restaurant.
This restaurant, owned by master chef
Maezumi, specializes in a ramen noodle
soup. Over a warming bowl of steaming
ramen, Abby has an epiphany. She is
intrigued by the art of ramen and wants
to learn the skill of replicating it from the
chef. He reluctantly agrees to teach her
and directs her to report to the kitchen at
5 a.m. the next day.
Abby, four years out of college and
coming from a background of privilege,
is ill-prepared for the rigors and drudgery
of a noodle shop apprentice under the
tuteledge of the gruff Maezumi. He obvi-
ously thrives on his restaurant's fare as he
resembles a sumo wrestler.
Romance enters the picture when
Abby meets Yoshi, a charming young
Japanese man, who in the past had
aspired to becoming a rock star but has

Washington Rules: Perpetual Warfare
by Max Friedersdorf
A powerful and provocative new book by retired U.S.
Army colonel Andrew J. Bacevich charges that
American militarism has propelled the nation into a state
of perpetual war and "a headlong lunge to insolvency."
A professor of history and international relations at Boston
University, Bacevich, a wounded and decorated combat veteran
of Vietnam with a
son serving in Iraq,
is the author of
America's Path To
Bacevich believes the cost of constant
warfare in Afghanistan and Iraq (including
the building of roads, schools, hospitals
and $4.6 billion on the electricity problem
in Baghdad), "has allowed Washington to I
postpone or ignore problems demanding
attention here at home. Fixing Iraq and
Afghanistan ends up taking precedence
over fixing Cleveland and Detroit."
Bacevich points out that the Pentagon's
annual budget of $700 billion out of the
total U.S. budget of $1 trillion "is more
than the entire military spending of the rest A ]N EW !J. B.C J[ I
of the world combined."
Both wars (10 years in Afghanistan;
seven years Iraq) have cost $2 trillion with
the meter still running, plus the cost of
American occupation troops in 761 bases
in 39 countries, not including the dozens of Afghan and Iraq bases, Bacevich notes.
The American military cannot get enough volunteers to fight its wars anymore,
Bacevich explains, which has spawned a reliance on "private contractors" on a scale
unknown in American wars, involving an outsourcing of combat and other duties once
performed by soldiers that has grown to the point that there are more contractors
($500 Der day) than soldiers in AfQhanistan.

A recent casualty in Afghanistan involved a young man on his 12th tour where the
average serviceman has served four or five tours. At the same time, Bacevich writes,
"The Pentagon makes up the difference by outsourcing... in earlier days, such hired
auxiliaries were known as war profiteers or mercenaries, terms freighted with unsavory
connotations. Today to conceal such unseemliness, the preference is to use anodyne
terms like private security firms or private contractors."
Bacevich suggests that if America's warrior-professionals were brought home from
distant provinces of empire they might once again become the "citizen protector of
the nation, and rather than serving as an instrument of the state, the soldier might
simply defend the country."
"The proper aim of American statecraft, therefore, is not to redeem humankind or
to prescribe some specific world order, not to police the planet by force of arms. Its
purpose is to permit Americans to avail themselves of the right of self-determination
as they seek to create at home a "more perfect union." Any policy impeding that
enterprise - as open-ended war surely does -- is misguided and pernicious," Bacevich
"In short, if the United States has a saving mission, it is, first and foremost, to save
itself," he concludes.

reverse the past experience of crisis man-

to accumulate funds, to crisis prevention
referring to the taxing district which will
accumulate money before it becomes
a crisis situation. Over 600 properties,
which includes nine homeowner associa-
tions, six condominium associations and
the Sanibel Marina, are involved in the
petition drive with the properties divided
into two separate areas, east and west.
McNeill credited that cooperative effort
with getting the petition drive this far.
The major problem is periodic accu-
mulation of sand at the entrance/exit to
Shell Harbor at Sanibel Marina which
creates hazardous conditions for resident
boat owners and guests at Sanibel Marina
as they enter the canal system. Unless
periodically dredged, the entrance would
eventually be completely blocked. In past
dredging projects there, Sanibel Marina
has picked up the major share of the
McNeill said the interior canals would
probably need spot dredging every 20
years. He said maintaining a healthy
canal system is vital to the economy of
the island since property values of canal
homes are dependent on access to the
Taxing districts are not new to Sanibel.
Water Shadows subdivision established a
taxing district several years ago to finance
dredging of their canals. The city set up
taxing districts for beach renourishment
and the installation of the new sewer sys-
tem. Under this concept all stakeholders
participate in the project.
Residents Bart Smith and Jerry
Muench are leading the block captains in
the petition drive. The task force is striv-
ing for 90 to 100 percent support of the
petition and is targeting December 31 for
completion. All petitions have to be in to

And Their Families
submitted by Ted Tyson
S anibel won't forget our warriors
overseas this Thanksgiving and
Christmas vowed a number of resi-
dents and businesses when they heard
of the needs our troops have for even
the modest things we take for granted.
Joining up to aid the Lee Memorial
Hospital System (LMHS) Military
Support unit, which since 2003 has
been supporting our overseas troops,
and their local families, Bank of the
Islands, the Arnowitz family, the Tysons,
Island Sun, lots of retired and former
military, and many other Sanibellians.
They are working with Sanibel Supports
and asking for your help, and the help
of all Sanibel residents and businesses to
bring some season joy to our troops in
Afghanistan and Iraq.
We find it amazing that some of the
most desperately needed items for are
things such as toilet paper, wet wipes,
lip balm, suntan lotion, white socks, and
snack food packs of fruit, pudding, and
cheese and crackers. Other needed food
items are: Ramen Noodles (chicken is the
preferred flavor), and meat in pouches
(tuna, chicken, salami, beef jerky, pep-
peroni are favorites). These items are
impossible to find, especially in the
remote areas where our troops are doing
Also needed are bubble gum and hard
candy for the troops, and also to give
to the needy children, and any wrapped
excess Halloween candy would be greatly
The LMHS Military Support unit has
sent over 33,000 pounds of We Care
packages to 979 deployed local troops
and their families. Now they are being
stretched to the limit because not only do
they have to get the items they send, they
also must pay to send the items to the
troops even though they mail the pack-
ages through the U.S. and military postal
service. Sadly, donations, because of the
recession, are slim and they also need
donations to help with the mailings.
Here on Sanibel, we can do our part
by digging into our pockets, buying a
couple of extra items for the troops on
our next trip to Baileys, Jerry's, or any
of your other favorite stores, and deliver-
ing them to the central collection point
at Bank of the Islands, 1699 Periwinkle
Way. You may also leave item donations
at all Everblades games. They support
You can also drop off a check made
out to LMHS-Military Support, or make
a cash donation at Bank of the Islands
(leave your name and address if you want
a tax donation receipt mailed to you by
Sanibel Supports our overseas war-
riors will recognize individual and business
donors in this newspaper as the Sanibel
Supports campaign continues through
2010. Look for updates.
Thank you Sanibel! God bless America
and keep her defenders and their loved

A Rainbow From The Center
Of The Earth: Tourmaline
by Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell
ourmalines are gems with an incomparable variety of col-
ors. According to Egyptian legend, on its long journey up
from the center of the Earth, tourmaline passed over a
, rainbow. In doing so, it assumed all the colors of the rainbow.
And that is why it is still
referred to as the "gem
stone of the rainbow"
The name tourma-
line comes from the
Singhalese words "tura mali." In translation,
this means stone with mixed colors, referring
to the color spectrum of this gemstone, which
outdoes that of all other precious stones.
There are tourmalines from red to green and a
from blue to yellow. They often have two or
There are tourmalines that change their
color when the light changes from daylight to
artificial light, and some that show the light Pearl and tourmaline earrings
effect of a cat's eye. The gemstone has an
endless number of faces and for that reason it suits all moods. In particular, it is the
gemstone of love and friendship, and is said to render them firm and long-lasting.
A tourmaline of an intense red is known as a rubellite, but only if it continues to
display the same fine ruby red in artificial light as it did in daylight. If the color changes
when the light source does, the stone is called a pink or shocking pink tourmaline.
Blue tourmalines are known as indigolites, yellowish-brown to dark brown ones as
dravites and black ones as school.
One particularly popular variety is the green tourmaline, known as a verdelite.
The absolute highlight among the tourmalines is the Paraiba tourmaline, a gemstone

Sp \ tice my full

are really only two
clubs I hit, driver
and wedge. The
driver is the longest
club in the bag and
the wedge is the
shortest. All of the rest of the clubs are
somewhere in between the two. Then,
when I get onto the golf course those
seem to be the two clubs that, if I hit
them well, the score is good. When I
hit either or both of them bad... you
Here are a few tips to make these two
clubs your new best friend!
Since it is the longest club in the bag
and you hit it off of a tee I only make
practice swings above ground. Don't let
the club strike the ground in your practice
swing. Ingrain the feel of the driver swing-
ing and bottoming out about an inch off
of the ground, where the ball is when
it's on a tee. I cringe every time I see
an amateur take a practice swing with a
driver and make a divot; bad stuff is com-
Have a "go to" shot with the driver.
Even if it is a 50-yard slice that starts left
of the rough and curves back into the
fairway, you must have a shot under
pressure you can fall back on if things
start going poorly (Dustin Johnson, are
The drive is the most important shot
of every hole. If the first shot of every
hole is poor, the rest of that hole you will
be scrambling trying to overcome a bad
drive. Hit one on the fairway and you
typically will have a pretty good hole.
I hit most of my full swing practice
balls with a wedge of some type (sand
wedge, pitching wedge, gap wedge).
I make sure that I can easily hit all
of my wedges specific distances. For
example, if I hit my pitching wedge 125
yards I make sure I can instantly hit an
80-yard, 100-yard or 110-yard one at
any time. This teaches me that distance
comes from length of back swing and fol-
low through, not speed of swing.
If I want a full one, I swing all the way
back and through; if I want half the dis-
tance I swing just as aggressively but only
swing half the way back and through.
While practicing, I pick a different tar-
get and distance for every shot instead of
hitting a pile of balls to the same target. I
have never had the same shot twice dur-
ing a round of golf, so I don't practice the
same shot over and over.0

The Sanibel Storm soccer team
returned to its winning ways on

fought victory over San Carlos.
The opposition showed its colors early
on, producing a number of strong chal-
lenges on the storm players. It would
have been easy for the young Storm
team to have been intimidated but instead
they rose to the challenge and produced
a display full of grit and determination. In
soccer these qualities will only get you so
far and the Storm also showed skills that
lifted them above their rivals. They are

The game was deadlocked going
into the last 15 minutes when Robbie
Gisewhite produced a defense-splitting
pass which Michael Stufano latched onto.
He held off two San Carlos defenders
and produced a shot that the keeper
could not hang onto. The ball ran free
and Oliver Goss pounced to ram the ball
home. Both sides had more chances to
score but the storm held on to post a 4-3
record for the season so far.
Their next game is on Saturday morn-

The Greatest Racehorse In History;
Zenyatta Will Answer Tomorrow
by Ed Frank
In the hundreds of columns we have written over the last
I decade, not one was about horse racing or a particular
horse. But we're turning a new chapter today for racing
$4 history could unfold tomorrow, Saturday, at Churchill Downs
when many believe the greatest race horse in history will retire
undefeated after winning her 20th consecutive race.
Her name is Zenyatta, a magnificent big six-year-old mare,
\ > who has raced in 19 races and won them all while amassing
*-- / $6.5 million in earnings. Not bad for a horse the owners paid
just $60,000 to buy.
It's an interesting coincidence that Zenyatta's run for history
takes place while a marvelous movie, Secretariat, is now appearing. Secretariat is the
last horse to win the Triple Crown and has been acclaimed the greatest race horse in
history. Should Zenyatta gallop to victory tomorrow, history must decide who is No.1.
We do recommend the film Secretariat. It's a movie young and old will find inspir-
ing and entertaining.
Now back to Zenyatta and tomorrow's Breeders' Cup, considered the most pres-
tigious race of the year. Should the California-based mare repeat her 2009 victory,
she'll retire in luxury having won an additional $3 million for her owners, Jerry and
But remember, Zenyatta is the oldest thoroughbred and the only girl that will
answer the call to the post at Louisville's Churchill Down's tomorrow. And some of the
finest horses throughout the world will challenge her.
The hype, the excitement, the frenzy over Zenyatta is unprecedented - particularly
when you consider we are in the midst of the confluence of the World Series, profes-
sional hockey, football, and basketball and college football.
CBS' 60 Minutes devoted a major segment to her last Sunday. She was profiled
this month in W Magazine, and Oprah calls Zenyatta "one of 20 women rocking the
world." According to 60 Minutes, she could become the first great American athlete
to retire undefeated since boxer Rocky Marciano more than 50 years ago.
And she's the star attraction in star-studded Hollywood where she poses and struts
for throngs of visitors.
Aboard Zenyatta tomorrow will be Hall of Fame Jockey Mike Smith who has won
nearly 5,000 horse races, all the races in the Triple Crown and the last 15 victories of
On 60 Minutes, Smith proclaimed, "I think she could arguably go down as one of
the greatest, if not the greatest horse of all time."
Asked if she is better than Secretariat, Smith replied, "Well, if we can pull it off,
she's never been beaten. So how can you argue with perfection?"
If Zenyatta is so great, just why didn't she race as a three-year-old in the Kentucky
Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont?
Trainer John Shirreffs said she just wasn't ready at that age. "It took her a long
time to mature into the horse she is now. And we just had to be patient with her," he
said on 60 Minutes.
Zenyatta's typical start from the gate is to linger in the back of the field. Then,
whether it's a command from Smith or on her own intuition, she will launch like a
rocket shot passing the field in blazing speed.
Her reward, according to trainer Shirreffs, is one bottle of beer, not just any beer,
Don't be surprised tomorrow that her reward for her 20th straight victory is two
bottles of Guinness.
The Breeders' Cup will be televised on ABC.
Is Twins Former GM Terry Ryan Looking for a New Job?
The Chicago Tribune reported last Sunday that Terry Ryan, the former long-time
general manager of the Minnesota Twins, may be interested in returning as a major
Ryan, who is credited with building the continued winning success of the Twins,
was seen at the New York Mets training facility in Port St. Lucie shortly before the
Mets hired Sandy Alderson as their new GM.
Phil Rogers, the Tribune's veteran baseball writer, said the management of the
Chicago Cubs should get on the telephone immediately to offer Ryan a position at the
top of the Cubs' baseball operations.
Florida Everblades Sweep Kalamazoo; Depart on Six-Game Road Trip
The Florida Everblades defeated the Kalamazoo Wings three straight games last
week at Germain Arena to move within two points of first-place Gwinnett in the
ECHL South Division.
Florida, at 5-3 for the season, swept Kalamazoo 3-2, 6-2 and completed the series
with a 4-3 shootout win Saturday night.
The Everblades are on the road this weekend for three games against the South
Carolina Stingrays followed by another three-game set at Greenville next weekend.
Florida does not return to the friendly ice at Germain until November 17 when they
host Toledo for three games.,

ers started Tuesday, November
9 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the

he Bay to Beach Bombers nuked
an unsuspecting Williams and
Williams last Wednesday night at
the Sanibel Softball League. Being a
new team, little was known of the Bay
to Beach Bombers before the season
began. They have been underestimated
these past two weeks but it's safe to say
that won't happen again.
In the early stages of the game it
looked as though Williams and Williams
were going to use every trick in the book.
Williams player Steve Brunner hit a deep
shot to his wife Tracy, who plays for the
Bombers. As he expected, she couldn't
field the ball, which led to an inside-the-
park homer for Steve. But that was the
last time the Williams team was in the
lead before the Bombers exploded to
a 26-11 victory. As a final exclamation
point, Bomber star Greg Gleason hit a
grand slam at the tail end of the game.

Sanibel Cafe Captain Richard McCurry ran the table after the break by Gator Gates

was a wise investment.

Florida Residency & Your Estate Plan
by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified
Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA
T IT ith the influx of our seasonal residents, I'm getting
lAI more questions about Florida residency - more specifi-
V V cally whether someone should consider becoming a
Florida resident and how that affects an estate plan. Today I
heard in recent days.
If you own property both here and in another state, then it
might make sense to consider Florida residency. Florida has no
state income tax or estate tax. In years past Florida used to have
an intangible tax, but that has since been abolished. Further, if
you own a home in Florida that is your primary residence, you can declare it to be
your Florida homestead. The Save Our Homes law limits the annual increase in the
assessed value of the property. Over time these types of savings usually add up signifi-
Since Florida has no state income tax, your unearned income (usually in the form
of interest and dividends) generally avoids state level income tax. If you continue to
earn income in a state that has an income tax, however, even if you become a Florida
resident that earned income is likely to continue to be taxed in that state.
Many people wrongfully assume that if they don't spend six months or more a
year in Florida then they can't become a Florida resident. Florida doesn't impose
time requirements. Instead it's really a matter of intent. If you intend to be a Florida
resident, and do the things that evidence residency, then you can become a Florida
The difficulty often times arises with your former home state. Many northern states
do impose time requirements - indicating that even if you consider yourself a resident
of another state, if you spend a certain amount of time or conduct certain activities in
that state the state will continue to consider you a resident and will therefore expect
you to pay the requisite taxes.
These sorts of laws should be examined on a case-by-case basis to determine
whether your fact pattern would put you in an advantageous position or not.
As far as your estate plan, if you become a Florida resident it is usually a very good
idea to update your plan to Florida law. Every state's laws are different, including
Florida's. While your will or trust that is validly drawn in another state remains valid,
the differences in state law could result in adverse or unintended consequences.
One such consequence is with regard to your Florida homestead. Florida law con-
tains very specific descent and devise laws surrounding who you may leave your home
to. A standard marital trust/credit shelter trust (often referred to as an A/B trust) is
usually an invalid devise under Florida law. So even if you created your trust before you
became a Florida resident, and then placed your Florida home into it, the devise inside
of that trust becomes invalid the minute you declare Florida residency. This has noth-
ing to do with the tax laws, by the way.
If you want more information on this subject, my firm's website has a Florida
Residency Estate Planning Guide and video. Go to www.sbshlaw.com and click on the
Florida state map icon that reads "New Florida Residents Click Here."

Routine A/C Maintenance
by Bryan Hayes
S . I l his is far from the most exciting subject to read about no
less write about. The regular maintenance of anything
J. is mundane, middle of the work week type stuff. There
Usually is no instant gratification or tangible item that is derived
.. from having routine maintenance done. The only time we
think about routine maintenance is after something goes wrong
and our service provider says, "This probably could have been
avoided if you had kept up with the routine maintenance."
This, of course, is the last thing you want to hear in a crisis situation.
It always seems to happen at the most inopportune time. For instance, you have a
big trip planned for the next day, and your car goes on the fritz. Another classic is you
have every individual that you know coming from up north to visit you here in sunny
Florida. A quick note about that: since I moved to Florida almost 20 years ago, I sure
have a lot more friends and family that want to visit, in fact more than I knew I even
had. But back to the subject at hand. Everyone is coming to visit and the day before
you say, "Boy, it's getting hot in here." You go over to the thermostat and make it
a couple degrees cooler, but an hour later you look at the thermostat and its getting
warmer rather then cooler. Instant panic sets in. What's a hot sweating body to do?
Should I call for service?
Here's a quick rundown of what to check before calling for service: check that the
thermostat is set properly, check your breakers and, finally, check your humidistat. If
this doesn't take care of the problem, call for service.
Back to the subject of routine maintenance. This should be performed every six
months. A standard maintenance call will include checking the accessible ductwork,
taking temperature and pressure readings, cleaning or replacing the filter, checking the
thermostat for calibration, clearing drain lines and, finally, looking at the system as a
If this is performed on a regular basis you can expect a much higher degree of reli-
ability and avoid the sinking feeling you get when your service provider says, "This
probably could have been avoided..."

collecting is such fun, and displaying your collections in a
Creative manner adds even more excitement and joy to
your life. Not only as you search for additions, but also
as you display your prize possessions in your home.
While there may be no real value in your collections, other
than intrinsic value to you, collectors are passionate about their
objects and want to show them off in the best possible light.
Displaying your collections calls for you to truly take a good look at what you've
amassed and decide how best to show everything off. You want to be sure that your
groups make up a well-balanced whole as you decide how to artfully display them!
So ask yourself a few of these questions:
Is my collection going to be best shown off on a shelf?
Would direct lighting be best placed over my collection to show it off even more?
Should my collection be best hung on a wall?
Do I need to protect my collection by placing it in a glass cabinet?
How can I best arrange my collection to accentuate its features?
And once you've found a home for your collection or collections, why not consider
moving those treasured items occasionally. Left too long in the same place, they may

Tourmalines are found almost all over the world. There are major deposits in

Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Madagascar, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Tourmalines
are also found in the USA, mainly in California and Maine. Although there are plenty
of gemstone deposits that contain tourmalines, good qualities and fine colors are not
often discovered among them. For this reason, the price spectrum of the tourmaline is
almost as broad as that of its color, much like the rainbow it is often compared to.

'Kia Ora" From New Zealand
A Maori ceremony in New Zealand
Sydney Opera House
submitted by Patty Molnar
4 T7 ia Ora" is the standard Maori greeting and, like "aloha," covers "thank
lA you," "good luck," "good health" and, when used to address a group,
. L" hello." Now that we are in New Zealand, we are still "goin'," instead of
"doin'," as in "how you goin'?," and in the morning if we're alert and ready to go,
we're "a box of fluffy ducks."
Before we arrived in New Zealand, we spent three days in Sydney, Australia's
most populous city of 4.2 million. On the first day we toured the Opera House, which
as everyone knows is one of the world's iconic buildings. Opened in 1973, it also
developed into one of the great boondoggles of our time. Submitting the sketches in
a contest for the building's design, the winning Danish architect apparently had not
given much thought as to how to actually build it! Eventually he did come up with an
ingenious engineering design that was so arduous and complicated that construction
took 10 years and $107 million. Because his original proposal was for three years
and $15 million, the delays and cost overruns put him crosswise with the city govern-
ment, which stripped him of most of his authority over the project. So he returned to
Denmark, never to see the completion of his masterpiece.
We were lucky to get tickets to a performance of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro,
the last evening of our stay in the city.
On our second day in Sydney we drove to the nearby Blue Mountains where we
visited a wildlife park to see koalas (which are not bears but marsupials), emus; walla-
bies, kangaroos; and salt-water crocodiles. The salt-water crocodile, which lives in estu-
aries and often swims into the ocean, is one of Australia's most fearsome creatures,
one in a long list of deadly snakes, spiders and other bad things. Growing to a length
of 21 feet, these massive reptiles make our Florida alligators look like salamanders!
That same day we finally saw kangaroos in the wild. Kangaroos are mostly noctur-
nal, so we were fortunate to be able to spot them in the daylight.
A word about Australia's past. It is actually a younger country than the U.S. It has
its origins in the overflowing prisons of England. Most of the people who were sent
to Australia were poor people just trying to survive. For petty offenses like stealing a
loaf of bread or a couple of hens, they were sentenced to time and "transportation."
Transportation began in 1778 with the arrival in Botany Bay of the First Fleet and

New Zealand is a country of 5.4 million with 4.2 million living on the north island.
Of those, 1.2 million live in Auckland, New Zealand's largest city which has the
world's biggest Polynesian population. Whereas the Aborigines of Australia came
there from the area of Sri Lanka some 40,000 years ago, the Maoris arrived in New
Zealand from Polynesia in the 14th century. Comprising 16 percent of New Zealand's
population, the Maoris are held in high regard, their culture well respected by their fel-
One of the best examples we encountered of this was the fabulous Museum of New
Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa ("Our Place"), an immense modem structure devoted to
Maori culture in Wellington. For anyone visiting that city, this is a must-see.
The scenery in New Zealand is the most spectacular in the world. It is unadulter-
ated nature, helped by the fact that there is very little industry here. Their economy
is agriculture-based. We have been lucky to have "fine" (as in the UK the weather is
"fine" rather than "good") with the exception of our day at Milford Sound. Milford
Sound is the signature image of the country found on all its travel literature. It is also in
an area that receives 21 feet of rain a year. Attila and I were stunned by the views of
mountains rising to 9,000 feet and rock walls rising 4,000 feet. Through the rain and
fog we were able to observe penguins and seals.
For the past two days we had been in Queensland, a world center for adventure
sports. In this compact ski resort-looking town, every other shop advertises services
and gear for bungy jumping, parasailing, hang-gliding, helicopter skiing, snowboarding,
jet boating and other daredevil activities. I abstained from all of the aforementioned
sports, while Attila and about half of our tour group went jet boating, which consists of
getting into a propellerless power boat made for use in four inches of water and speed-
ing down a narrow river gorge, making several 360- degree turns along the way!
Next stop is Christchurch where our tour ends. After that we will be heading to
Lake Taupo to visit a friend I met in Houston almost 30 years ago.

A s leaves in
parts of the
Lk nation begin
to turn shades of
reds and browns,
tion, dense foliage
swaying palm trees remain beautifully
green. However, the natural beauty
can become dangerous and disruptive
if it collides with power lines. You can
ensure your family's safety by learning
the dangers of climbing, planting, or
trimming trees near electric power lines.
* Trees are excellent conductors of
electricity - when trees limbs contact
power lines, the electricity travels through
the tree to the ground. If you touch a
tree that is contacting power lines, you
will become part of that path and could
be seriously injured or killed.
* Always remember to call before you
dig to avoid hitting electrical lines buried
underground. Before letting children
climb trees or trimming back tree branch-
es, be sure to look up and around you for
overhead power lines in the area.
* Never attempt to trim a tree near
electrical wires or remove branches that
are touching power lines. Certified tree
trimmers are specially trained in electric
safety and have the proper equipment to
trim trees near high-voltage lines.
* You can avoid exposing your family
to the dangers of trees and electricity by
planting the right tree in the right place.
As a general rule of thumb, plant trees
that have a mature height of 20 feet or
more at least 20 feet away from over-
head electric lines. For a list of electric-
friendly trees, visit www.lcec.net.
If you see a line down, call LCEC at
656-2300 right away; if someone touch-
es a downed line or handles equipment
that touches a line, call 911 first. If you
must try to rescue a person in contact
with a power line, never use your hands
or any conductive material, as this puts
you in the electrical path and at risk for
serious injury or death.
Remember, the greater the distance
between you and the power lines the bet-

Art Program To Fight Human
Trafficking Of Young American Girls
For Sale By Owner poster created by the
Students who participated in Artreach with some of their mentors
Human traffickers target American girls between the ages of 11 to 15 more
than any other group. In an effort to educate girls in this age group, Human
Trafficking Awareness Partnerships has organized a number of Artreach pro-
grams and has just concluded its second painting project.
A group of students from around Lee County worked at the Bethany Lutheran
Church in North Fort Myers to create four canvas wall hangings measuring 3-by-4
feet depicting the dangers of human trafficking to young American girls. These stu-
dents ranged in age from 10 to 18 and a group of their mothers who are students at
Hodges University volunteered and produced one painting of their own.
Contributions of food, supplies and transportation along with grants from the Zonta
Clubs of Fort Myers and Bonita Springs made this program possible. Richard Johnson
of Bailey's General Store on Sanibel provided the celebratory last dinner on October
28. Other food donations came from Bob Evans, Olive Garden, Jalapeno's and
Bethany Lutheran Church.

ment, food, and refreshments.
On Saturday, November 6, a bike

power this group has in working together
for stronger, healthier babies."

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
Q: I have strug-
gled all my life with
weight and I am
currently about 50
d. pounds overweight.
I admit that I eat out
I really want to
lose the 50 pounds
but I am not sure
where to begin as I don't want to go on
another diet. I feel like I need some emo-
tional counseling too.
A: Congratulations that you want to
lose the weight by not dieting. Diets don't
work and lifestyle change is what you will
succeed with for the long term. Despite
the unhealthy and cheap options that are
all around us, your body needs nutrient-
rich whole foods and counseling would
be most helpful so you can understand
the root cause of your eating history and
work to re-program a healthy plan that
also includes exercise. You will be able to
find a healthy way of eating that works
Eating when you are stressed or
depressed has become the norm in our
culture. We turn to food to fill the void
and feel better but this also increases
cortisol levels which tend to cause weight
gain. We still associate food with comfort,
love and safety. It is believed that 75 per-
cent of overeating is caused by emotions.
Prior to you seeing a counselor I
would recommend you read about the
Mediterranean diet. It is rich with healthy
fats like those from olive oils, fruits and
vegetables; whole grains, nuts and lean
proteins. This type of eating lifestyle
approach of balanced nutrition satifies
our system so we are not left with strong
cravings for foods less in nutrients.
Also, consider an exercise that you
enjoy. If you don't like exercise, begin by
taking a brisk walk daily and increase the
distance as you begin to get used to it.
You can also talk with a personal trainer
to get on an exercise program that is
right for you. See your primary care phy-
sician to get clearance before you begin
any exercise program.
It may seem like a lot now to get start-
ed, but it will be quite worth it in the long
run and your body will thank you.

health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public

The Children's Hospital of
Southwest Florida, in partnership
with the Ronald McDonald House
Charities of Southwest Florida, offers a
free monthly autism spectrum disorder
(ASD) screening for toddlers 18 months
to five years of age.
The next screening will be held
November 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 2
p.m. at the Cape Coral Hospital's Child
Development Center located at 636 Del
It is estimated that one in every 150
children is diagnosed with some form
of ASD, making it more common than
childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and
pediatric AIDS combined.
Medical consultants for the project
stress that an early diagnosis can make a
big difference for toddlers and their fami-
lies. They say early intensive behavioral
intervention can make an immense differ-
ence not just in the development of the
child, but with their families as well.
The ASD screening is conducted
by the Neurosciences Center at The
Children's Hospital, under the guidance
of Pediatric Neurologist Jose Colon, MD,
MPH, and Pediatric Psychiatrist Marianne
Krouk, DO. The screenings are admin-
istered by an advanced registered nurse
practitioner, who has extensive training
and experience in typical child develop-
ment and developmental disorders.
A physician referral is not required. To
schedule a screening, call 985-3608.0
