Wide Variety Of Entertainment
At Taste Of The Islands This Year
L ocal band Strange Arrangement will kick off the musical entertainment at the
29th annual Taste of the Islands from noon to 1 p.m. on Sunday, November
21 at Sanibel Community Park.
This six-piece band's style is rich and varied with original sounds and full of musical
diversity and textures.
Then a Southwest Florida favorite, Deb and the Dynamics, will take the stage and
offer cool tunes and hot sounds steeped in vintage Motown, Memphis soul, classic
R&B, and jump blues traditions. The band, which will perform from 1:15 to 3:15
p.m., prides itself in being the ultimate dance/party band.
Longtime island band The Troublestarters will wrap up the musical entertainment
for the day from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The band members blend their music with the spirit
of living on Sanibel and Captiva. Their songs are a mix of blues, country and bluegrass
with a little comedy thrown in.

A Century
And Counting
For Island School
Over a century ago, a handful of
island children were educated in a
one-room schoolhouse each year.
Today, approximately 400 children annu-
ally attend the nationally-recognized The
Sanibel School, a Blue Ribbon School
serving students from Kindergarten
through eighth grade.
On November 20, from 6 to 10 p.m. at
'Tween Waters Inn, Captiva, friends, fami-
lies and alumni of the school will gather to
attend A Century and Counting, a celebra-
tion honoring this milestone not only by
looking back over the century of growth,
but also looking ahead to The Sanibel
School's future.
"We're so excited to see many of our
school's graduates at this special event,"
said Barbara Von Harten, principal. "Each
student played an important part in the his-
tory and helped make our school what it is
today," she added.
Von Harten said the school is hoping to
collect alumni contact information through
www.sanibelschoolalunmi.info so they can
continue communication between alumni

Narrated by Willard Scott, the film traces

Several former students who gradu-
ated years ago still live and work on the
islands. Michael Billheimer, proprietor of
Lighthouse Cafe for the past 22 years,
attended Sanibel Elementary school from

1964 to 1970 for * - - '
grades 1 through
6. After graduating
college and moving
around the U.S.,
Billheimer returned
to make Sanibel his
home once again
and to purchase .. -
Lighthouse Cafe in
He remembers
that there were only
three classrooms for
all six grades, with
two grades per class-
room and teacher.
Within each class-
room, one grade's
desks faced oppo-
site directions and
the teacher would
address one class
at a time, usually
after assigning work
to the other class.
During Billheimer's
six years at the .
school, rarely did a
classroom exceed
20 students with the Amy Matsumoto
two grades combined.
"Attending Sanibel Elementary was
a rich experience for me because of the
smallness of the school community which
gave a continuity of families rarely seen
in today's schools. I am especially proud
of Sanibel Elementary for its leadership
role in racial integration. If I am not mis-
taken, Sanibel Elementary was one of the
first schools in Florida to integrate," said

Sanibel School Fund President Jeff
Weigel said the funds raised at this event
will provide enhanced educational oppor-
tunities at the school, including 100
percent of the funding for the school's
foreign language program.

"The foreign language program is not funded through the Lee County School
District. If it were not for the Spanish program, under the direction of Dr. Nohora
Rivera, the school would not have been eligible for the National Blue Ribbon School
award," Weigel added. This prestigious designation was achieved by only 287 out of
125,000 eligible schools in the United States.
The Sanibel School Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, supports many other enhance-
ment opportunities for students. Some additional programs benefiting from the gen-
erosity of the community are music, art, physical education, and especially the tech-
nology needs of the school. Each year, this volunteer committee meets on a monthly
basis to discuss efforts to support the ongoing needs for the school that cannot be met
through traditional funding at the district level.
Tickets to the event are $75 per person and can be purchased by mailing
SanibelSchooll00andCounting@gmail.com, by mailing a check to The Sanibel School
Fund, P.O. Box 432, Sanibel, FL 33957, or by calling Weigel at 789-5935. Tickets
will be held at the door.

Despite some incumbents' claims that efforts to pass rules to guide redistricting
were partisan, last weeks' results indicate that a clear majority of voters from
all parties want to be able to choose their elected officials instead of allowing
those officials to choose their voters.
I want to express my sincere appreciation to the many people on Sanibel who
worked for over three years gathering petitions and working to pass these amend-
ments. The League of Women Voters of Sanibel was grateful to be part of this effort
during its first year as a nationally recognized league. The League of Women Voters
of Florida has worked for this change for over 30 years. It was the first victory in five

Chris Pendleton, president and CEO of the
Edison & Ford Winter Estates
submitted by Shirley Jewell
Well, I just came back from the
opening event of Celebrate
Sanibel 2010 at The
Community House on Sanibel and
enjoyed meeting many of you at our
Rotary Table. Thanks for dropping
by and telling me you enjoy reading
my articles about Rotary and showing
an interest in what our Rotary Club is

doing and will be doing in the future. I
personally hope some of you will join
us at our 7 a.m. Friday meetings at the
Blue Giraffe Restaurant and take the
opportunity to meet some of my fel-
low Rotarians. Breakfast will be on us,
if you're interested in finding out more
about becoming a Rotary Club member.
Last Friday morning at Rotary, it was
a pleasant surprise to all of us to see
Fort Myers Rotarian Chris Pendleton,
president and CEO of the Edison &
Ford Winter Estates sitting amongst us.
Surprise because we didn't know she was
our guest speaker for the morning until
after breakfast and she was invited to the
Pendleton had spoken to us before
about the Edison Estate but that was a
few years ago and at that time the fairly
new board of directors of the estate
property were just beginning to grasp the
scope of work to be done to repair and
restore this amazing property and they
were preparing and evaluating a plan for
its future. What a difference three years
can make!
First off, if you have been to the
estates recently or just ridden by, you
can't help but notice the physical appear-
ance and restoration of the buildings and
property. It is amazing. The beautiful
25-acre site and the nine historic build-
ings have been restored to reflect the
estates' former glory. Twelve million dol-
lars in restoration work along with the
development of new programming and
an annual operating budget of $4 million
is now attracting in excess of 200,000

visitors a year along with increased inter-
est in the estates' history, science and the
arts programs. The Edison & Ford Winter
Estates are visited by 500 to 800 people
a day.
In just the last few years this historic
site has received an amazing array of
awards and recognition: the prestigious
National Trust for Historic Preservation-
Trustee Emeritus Award for Excellence
in the Stewardship of Historic Sites;
National Register of Historic Places-Save
America's Treasures-Restore America;
Florida Historic Landmark; and the list
goes on and on. Remember this hap-
pened in just a few years with a staff of
around 56 (mostly part-time) and a volun-
teer core of 250.
The mission of the Edison & Ford
Winter Estates is to provide unique edu-
cational experiences based on the legacy
and lives of Thomas Edison and Henry
Ford with an emphasis on their Florida
history. The purpose is to inspire the
public to learn from these experiences.
As such, the mission includes the preser-
vation and interpretation of their homes,
gardens, laboratory and related objects
and artifacts.
With many of the restoration projects
completed or under way, the property is
in extremely good shape. Future plans
are now focused on educational pro-
gramming and the building of a new
educational center with classes to include
science, music, history, horticulture, art
and film. Why? Twenty thousand stu-
dents are reached by the estates outreach
programs, school groups visit from all

over the country, environmental science
programs are presented free to 4th grade
Lee County students, the Edison & Ford
Inventors' Camp is entering its fourth
year, and so many students participate in
a plethora of activities at the estates.
The estates are brimming with all
kinds of activities, something for every-
one. One of my personal favorites is
coming up soon, the 35th Edison & Ford
Holiday Nights 2010 starting December
9. View the estates at night, 20 acres
filled with seasonal decoration and lights.
It's just magical. Bring the kids and enjoy
a beautiful night in a beautiful setting.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club will
move its meeting place soon. As of this
writing, the plans have not been firmed
up. We are anxiously waiting for one of
our new Sanibel restaurants to open its
doors to us. We will give you the skinny,
as soon as we get a firm date.

R rmer Sanibel resident Howard
(Sonny) Cothran died on November
1 in St. Petersburg surrounded by
family and friends, from complications
of a stroke following heart surgery. He
was 67. His passing may come as a sur-
prise to many of his local friends.
Cothran had two major loves, golf
and boating, and he excelled at both. His
casual Tennessee demeanor masked his
golfing skills which never became appar-
ent until well into a round when his oppo-
nent realized he had no hope of winning.
In the eyes of his golfing buddies at The
Dunes Golf & Tennis Club, his short
game prowess was legendary.
An inveterate gambler on any sport
or activity, he rarely lost. He said he
always had one big advantage over his
opponents in that he was never afraid to
lose. By his own estimation he won and
lost hundreds of thousands of dollars over

out ahead. His Tennessee "twang" was a
constant source of ribbing by his friends
who accused him of speaking a foreign
language requiring him to have an inter-
Known for his free spirit and his
countless number of friends, Cothran
was known by many names: Pop, Sonny
Man, Sunshine, Sonny Boy, Sand
Bagger, Sand Bar Sonny and Lefty, to
name a few. Always smiling and upbeat,
he never met a stranger. Friends attest
that he was a man's man and there were
few who didn't have a "Sonny story."
His smile will continue to reach out and
touch those who knew him. He will be
deeply missed.
Cothran was born July 3, 1943 in
Johnson City, Tennessee, where he spent
most of his life until moving to Sanibel in
1998. He graduated from Science Hill
High School and attended the University
of Tennessee. He had an entrepreneur-
ial spirit. He owned and operated the
Starlight Lounge in Johnson City in the
1970s and then took over the family
marina on Boone Lake in Tennessee,
which he owned and operated as
Sonny's Marina with his wife Joann,
daughter Shannon and son Keith for
many years.
He retired to Sanibel in 1998 to
pursue his passion for golf and boating.
He spent several years working at the
Sanibel Marina before yielding to his
independent instincts. He studied for and
received his master captain's license and
began operating his own charter busi-
ness, Dolphin Tours and Shelling, along

Debby left this world to be with her
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on
October 31. Debby is in a better
place today than she has been for the
past several years, having struggled with
the early onset of Alzheimer's. Praise
God for all those angels that have cared
for Debby during that time in our home,
at Arden Court of Fort Myers and from
Hope Hospice.
Debby will be missed by her loving
husband Ray, daughters Betsy (James)
Hanks and Amy Pavelka, two beauti-
ful grandchildren Jacob and Katherine
Hanks, her father James C. White, broth-
ers Jim Jr. (Sonya) and Waldo (Loretta)
and nieces and nephew Tory, Ashley and
Jay. Debby was predeceased by her lov-
ing mother Ruth Babcock White in 1998.
Debby was born in 1949, grew up
in Ithaca, New York with a special love
for music, dancing, nature and competi-
tive swimming. She set many records
in the YMCA pools of upstate New
York. Debby graduated from Ithaca High
School (The Little Red) in 1967 and the
University of Rochester in 1971, return-
ing to Ithaca to work in her field of library
She moved to Captiva Island in 1974
to join her future husband Ray and to
share in their Florida adventures: a long
anticipated wedding in 1979, a move
to Fort Myers in 1981, starting a fam-
ily in 1982 and expanding that family

the barrier islands. He also operated a
marine repair business. He possessed an
uncanny knack for diagnosing and repair-
ing marine engines.
He is survived by his former wife Jodi
Cothran of Sanibel; daughter Shannon
C. Lawson, Tampa; son Keith Cothran,
Cape Coral; grandchildren Larry F.
Lawson 111 (Tripp) and Sunni Joannah
Lawson, Tampa.
He was preceded in death by his son
Eddie Cothran, mother and stepfather
Kathleen and Dean Cothran and father
William Howard Stewart.
A Celebration of Life memorial is
planned on Saturday, November 20 at
4:30 p.m. on the west side of the first
causeway island when exiting Sanibel.
A Tennessee memorial will be held
at Sonny's Marina in Johnson City,
Tennessee in the spring of 2011 at a
date and time to be announced later.
In lieu of flowers the family is request-
ing that family and friends submit their
favorite "Sonny" story to sonnyboysani-

Eve At Captiva

n the autumn of 1621, the people
of the Plymouth Colony gathered in
a small harvest and prepared their
homes for winter. They also shared
waterfowl, wild turkey and venison with
their fellow colonists and with their
Native American neighbors.
The first national Thanksgiving was
declared in 1777 by the Continental
Congress. Others were declared from
time to time until 1815. Then, in 1863,
two national days of Thanksgiving were
declared, one celebrating the victory at
Gettysburg on August 6, and the other
the first of our last Thursday in November
annual Thanksgivings.
Parishioners will gather at Captiva
Chapel-By-The-Sea on November 24 at
5 p.m. for an informal Thanksgiving Eve
service remembering our heritage and
offering thanks to the source of all that
we have.
All are welcome to join in the service. O

Two Cruises
T wo collaborative programs are being offered by the Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation and Captiva Cruises.
Pine Island Sound, the bay that stretches between the islands and the main-
land, is full of birds and steeped in rich history. Both trips are designed to give passen-
gers a window on some of the wildlife and stories of the past.
The Fish House Cruise
Tuesday, November 16, 9 to
11:30 am: Fishing as a Vocation: a Historic Perspective of Commercial Fishing in
Pine Island Sound, a/k/a The Fish House Cruise
Fish houses are an iconic part of Pine Island Sound. Placed on the National Historic
Register, these houses are recognized for their historic value in preserving the culture
of commercial fishing in the early 20th century. The conservation foundation is offer-
ing an opportunity to cruise near these weekend getaways and hear about some of the
2,000 years of human history.
Tales about fishing, fish houses, the people whose lives were centered on the estu-
ary, and current research of SCCF's Marine Laboratory and aquaculture activities will
be discussed as they pertain to Pine Island Sound.
The trip is provided in cooperation with Captiva Cruises. The boat is a 48-passen-
ger catamaran with a deck for viewing wildlife.
The cost for the trip is $30 per person. Call Captiva Cruises at 472-5100 for res-
Moonlit Rookery and Sunset Cruise
Friday, November 19, 5 to 7 pm
After enjoying a sunset over the profile of North Captiva Island, cruise to a rookery
tucked away in Pine Island Sound.
Although the island was battered by Hurricane Charley, the mangroves still provide
night time shelter for ibis, herons, and egrets. In the twilight hours, birds can be seen
winging their way across the water to roost on Hemp Key for the night.
Keeping a safe distance, passengers, particularly those with binoculars, can enjoy
seeing this evening ritual. Generally in November and December, fairly large numbers
of frigate birds swirl overhead and eventually alight on the outer branches. The moon
will be just rising in the eastern sky.
Cruise back in that delightful time between day and dark. If the sky is clear, watch
the brightest of the stars emerge in the sky. Join the staff of the Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation aboard one of Captiva Cruises' boats for the evening.
The cost for the trip is $30 per person. Call Captiva Cruises at 472-5100 for res-

A Birthday
To Remember
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
'- " he week
marked our
first cold front
of the fall. Record
S-lows for this time
,Le " of year and strong
winds kept just
about everyone off
the water for a few
days. Once I made
it back out I was surprised to find how
good the action was.
My first time back out after the
cold front had passed was with Blake
Desantos. This trip was to celebrate
his 9th birthday As we headed out of
the canal all bundled up with the mid-
morning temperature only in the 50s,
my expectations were low. After a huge
temperature drop it generally takes a few
warm days for the fish to start eating

The water was super low and just
starting to come back in. This was the
biggest minus low tide I have seen since
last winter. The wind was still blowing
hard out of the north and as we reached
the end of the canal it was clear we
were not going far as the bay was white-
capping and rough. My plan was to soak
some live shrimp and keep us warm and
dry by staying close to home.
Running across the bay and ducking
into to the "Ding" Darling Refuge, I knew
we could at least hide from the cold wind
and hopefully find fish in some of the
deeper holes. I was heading to one of
my favorite low-tide shorelines where it's
eight feet deep even on a low tide.
Anchoring up, I tied on some 1/4 oz.
live bait jig heads and began throwing
them up to the mangroves, letting the
flooding incoming tide bounce the shrimp
down the bank.
After a few nibbles there was only
a small chunk of shrimp left on the jig
but I threw it back up to the trees one
more time. As soon as the shrimp chunk
reached the bottom, the rod was doubled
over. This fish picked it up so gently
but as soon as the hook was set it was

Blake Desantos on his 9th birthday with his
big redfish
screaming drag. After a brief fight a nice
fat redfish came up boatside. The red
measured 28 inches and weighed eight
pounds. The big red was just over the
slot so I had Blake hold it up quickly and
snapped a quick picture before releasing
the bruiser.
We sat on that same shoreline for
almost two hours catching fish after fish.
The majority were undersize redfish but
the bite was on fire. After 15 redfish in
the first hour, Blake lost count. We also
caught a few bigger sheepshead up to
four pounds which we kept in the livewell
as Blake wanted fried fish for his birthday

dinner. We did have another bigger red-
fish on that pulled the hook boatside. As
the tide got up higher the bite eventually
As we ran back across the bay the
wind had picked up even more, blow-
ing 20-plus so we headed for Long Cut
which is off a deep mangrove creek that
runs from St. James City to the power
lines. After setting up on a deeper man-
grove point we continued our streak,
catching fish after fish with trout, ladyfish
and mangrove snapper feeding well. With
only a few dozen live shrimp left I had
one more spot I wanted to hit before
wrapping it up.
The little cut I had picked out runs
between two mangrove islands and has
really fast moving current on an incoming
tide. After catching a few more rat reds
and trout something much bigger picked
up the bait and screamed line off the reel.
Unable to stop the fish, Blake's line hit
the mangroves and it was all over. He
was quick to inform me with a smile on
his face that, "That was the bite of the
day and probably the fish of the day."
After using all 150 shrimp we had not
gone for more than five minutes without
a fish the whole trip. I think this was a
birthday he will remember for a long
Most anglers I know do not like fishing
these low water minus tide conditions of
winter. Even on these less than perfect
conditions if you can find the deeper
water and holes with good tide movement
you can usually find action. I personally
really like fishing the first few hours of
a big minus tide on the incoming water.
These super low minus tides really bunch
up the fish.
Manatee No-Wake Zones End
November 15 is just about here.
What, you may ask, is so important about
November 15? The manatee no-wake
zones are over and we can run the back-
country again all winter long. Gotta love
what feels like an early Christmas pres-
ent. every year.
Capt. Matt Mitchell moved to Sanibel
in 1980 and has fished local waters for
more than 25 years. He now lives in St.
James City and has worked as a back
country fishing guide for more than 10
years. If you have comments or ques-
tions email captmattmitchell@aol.com.#

Great Spirit And
Meaning In FGCU
Tree Planting
The Center for Environmental and
Sustainability Education hosted an
occasion of great spirit and mean-
ing at Florida Gulf Coast University
on November 5. Students, faculty and
members of the local community joined
center staff as they stood together in the
shadow of Academic Building 7 to plant
a tree that symbolized an important
moment in the university's history and
hope for its future.
The tree planting was inspired by the
university's affiliate agreement with Earth
Charter International. It marked the end
of a week of events aimed at celebrating
10 years of the Earth Charter Initiative.
A 14-year-old live oak tree was
selected, which is the same age as the
university. The occasion was intended
to celebrate the recent LEED platinum
certification status awarded to Academic
Building 7, which the center proudly calls
its home. Platinum certification is the
highest level awarded in the U.S. Green
Building Council's Leadership in energy
and environmental design green building
rating system.
Sanibel resident and center director,
Peter Blaze Corcoran, began the cere-
mony by introducing two members of the
Tuscarora Nation and the Sandpiper Clan
of the Iroquois Confederacy. They con-
ducted a Native American Thanksgiving


Children from the Family Resource Center on campus water the newly-planted tree

invocation in their native tongue. The
afternoon continued as a group of speak-
ers read excerpts from the Earth Charter
and reflected on how the University
community might align itself to its ethical
principles. While they spoke, the Maine
-based Celtic band, Castlebay, played soft
music in the background.
Following his or her speech, each
speaker would walk over to the University
Earth Charter Tree and tie a ribbon to
one of its branches. The first two ribbons
were FGCU blue and green, and the fol-
lowing ribbons were black, red, yellow,
and white, symbolizing the diversity of

The planting ceremony was origi-
nally planned to be conducted by Chief
Jake Swamp, a member of the Mohawk
Nation and founder of the Tree of Peace
Society. In light of Chief's Swamp's unex-
pected passing, the event continued in his
honor. The legacies of Deanna Francis,
spiritual leader of the Passamaquoddy
Nation, and Oannes Arthur Pritzker, a
member of the Penobscot tribe, were
both honored at the ceremony as well.
To end the ceremony, the children
from the Family Resource Center on
FGCU's campus helped pour water and

Clinic Honors Past Board Presidents

CROW Past Board Presidents Wally Kain, Carole Lowenstine, Dr. Paul Douglass, Jan
Egeland, Don Egensteiner, John Schubert, current President Susan Tucker, Ann Arnoff,
and Dr. Steve Brown

In its 43-year history, CROW, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, has had
17 people serve in the role of president of the board of directors.
On Monday, November 1, current CROW President Susan Tucker welcomed
eight of those past presidents at a reception held at CROW's new Healing Winds
Visitor Education Center. The presidents shared stories about their experiences, chal-
lenges and successes throughout the years and also discussed their common vision for
continuing CROW's legacy of saving wildlife through compassion, care, and education.
Dr. Amber McNamara. CROW's clinic director, gave the group a tour of the new
hospital facility where nearly 5,000 patients representing 200 different species will
receive care this year. A plaque was also unveiled that recognizes the contributions of
all of CROW's past presidents and is on display at the visitor center. Executive Director
Steve Greenstein provided an overview of the educational offerings and upcoming pro-
grams in the center, and Managing Director Ava Hinojosa gave the past presidents an
update on the new communications plan, including a peek at the new CROW website
which is set to launch in December and a look at the first electronic newsletter being
sent to CROW supporters.
CROW's past presidents include two former Sanibel mayors, veterinary profession-
als, business owners, philanthropists, and community leaders who have helped give
wildlife a voice in the world. Their individual talents, abilities, and institutional knowl-
edge are a great resource for CROW, and the past presidents hope to gather again in
early 2011 to continue their discussions.

Thank you Captiva, for voting and
for involvement in the beach ref-
Thanks to the electorate, property
owners, poll workers and watchers who
contribute to our important electoral
process. Also, thanks to Kathy Rooker
and John Bralove, Partners in Progress
consultants, and CEPD commissioners
who perform above and beyond to assure
Captivans have every opportunity to par-
ticipate as an informed electorate.
Thanks especially to the Jensen fam-
ily who privately funded a mail campaign
and worked tirelessly to express their love
for our beaches; thanks to the many busi-
nesses that carry more than a fair share
of the load; thanks to 'Tween Waters
Inn's Jeff Shuff and South Seas' Rick
Hayduk and Marcos Borras for extraor-
dinary support, for meeting space and
refreshments that served five hundred
plus attending numerous town hall and
homeowner association gatherings. And
many thanks to spouses/partners of all
concerned who tolerate hundreds of
meetings and countless hours expended
by CEPD commissioners who volunteer
tirelessly in support of our beaches.
Thanks to the realtors, and others
who wrote to the newspapers supporting
our beach referendum. Thanks to Paul
McCarthy who never failed to mention
the importance of re-nourishment at the
many holiday planning meetings and to
Ken and Kate Gooderham who provided
pro bono support and to Al Ten Broeck
who lent historic perspective and more.
Thanks to all who value our beaches --
our lifeblood.
We still have a challenge ahead to
garner necessary grants from funding
sources while cajoling our various govern-
ments into carrying their fair share of this
load - at a time when they barely carry
existing loads.
Importantly, we all have work to do;

we all need to be more engaged. This
means YOU too: citizen, property owner,
business person, tenant, employee/
employee and all who depend upon
Captiva's beaches for recreation, liveli-
hoods, property and property value pro-
tection. We need ongoing support, letters
and attendance at our meetings. We have
mountains to climb to accomplish an
enormous task in uncertain times.
We cannot lose the beach.

Dock Approved

By Commission
by Anne Mitchell
t was just a formality on Tuesday
when the Sanibel Planning
Commission signed off on a variance
for Dewaine D. and Julia A. King to
have a new dock and boat lift at 915
Limpet Drive that will encroach on mini-
mum required setbacks.
In a previous hearing, the commission
heard no complaints from neighbors and
unanimously approved the request and
closed the hearing. Tuesday's decision
was to approve the wording of the ensu-
ing resolution.
The Kings' home is at the terminus of
a canal in Shell Harbor and the dock sits
across the corner, putting them in a hard-
ship situation. They have a 26-foot boat
with twin engines. They plan to replace
part of the deteriorating concrete pad
with a wood dock platform. 4

Outreach Project
Awarded Grant
The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation and Captiva Cruises
have been awarded a $2,500
public outreach grant from the Charlotte
Harbor National Estuary Program for
their cooperative No Child Left On
Shore environmental education outreach
The conservation foundation and
Captiva Cruises have partnered on many
educational ventures over the past two
decades including the Dolphin Wildlife
and Adventure Cruise, the Lessons
of Hurricane Charley Cruise, and the
Resident Environmental Orientation
This latest cooperative undertaking of
SCCF and Captiva Cruises aims to pro-
vide the younger generation of southwest
Florida with an opportunity to experience
firsthand the invaluable resources of the
Caloosahatchee watershed and the estua-
rine ecosystem.
Cuts in public funding for school envi-
ronmental education field trips as well
as logistical and other constraints have
drastically reduced the number of students
and residential youth of southwest Florida
who can experience for themselves the
importance of coastal resources.
The"No Child Left On Shore initiative
has already provided boat excursions and
experiential environmental education field

trips for teenagers of The Immokalee
Foundation, youth of the Dunbar area of
Fort Myers participating in a YMCA pro-
gram, and school age children from the
Brightest Horizons Child Development
Center in the Harlem Heights section of
Fort Myers. For many of these children, it
was their first experience on a boat.
This public funding will help provide
additional youth of southwest Florida
with the opportunity for environmental
education. The program is also seeking
help from private individuals and local
businesses to match grants from public
sources. Additional information about the
No Child Left On Shore Environmental
Education Outreach Project is available
from Captiva Cruises' Richard Finkel at

Public Workshops
here will be a workshop on the

The white and purple fringe of wild passion flower's corona

Wild Passion



The large leaves and grasping tendrils of
wild passion vines
photos by Gerri Reaves

by Gerri Reaves
The first time you see a wild passion
flower (Passiflora incarnata), you
might think someone's placed an
artificial flower on the vine as a joke, so
large and intricate are the bluish purple
The corona, the flower's most striking
feature, is comprised of a fringe of purple
and white filaments. The three- to five-
inch flowers grow plentifully on the native
vine. Another plus: they attract butterflies
and hummingbirds.
Also known as purple passion flower,
this fast-growing vine produces oval green
fruit one to three inches long. Called

maypop, that fleshy fruit is edible but not
especially tasty. The large three-lobed
leaves have serrated edges.
Besides being beautiful and wildlife
friendly, wild passion flower is low main-
tenance. Highly drought tolerant, it will
adapt to various soils, although it prefers
a dry spot in full sun.
This vine is perfect for beautifying an
unattractive fence or covering a trellis or
arbor, for it easily explores new territory
with its clasping tendrils. It even works
well as a groundcover.
Pruning will prevent it from getting out
of control. Or, gardeners can simply let
the caterpillars keep the foliage at bay.
Wild passion flower is a butterfly host
for the gulf fritillary, zebra longwing, and
Propagate wild passion flower with
cuttings or with seeds.

CROW Case Of The Week:
by Brian Johnson
If you have ever
seen a magnifi-
cent frigatebird,
it won't take long
to see they weren't
built to win the
Kentucky Derby or
set any land speed
With giant wing
spans and little legs
attached below their bodies, almost as
rudders, these birds are designed to soar
in the air. They glide high above the sea,
drifting on the wind currents and hardly
seeming to flap their wings at all.
At CROW, the anatomy of these birds
creates an extra challenge for Dr. Amber
McNamara and the clinic staff. They
have trouble walking on their little feet,
and it's virtually impossible to test their
flight because they can't catch an updraft
of wind from the floor of even CROW's
largest outdoor cages.
On November 2, CROW received an
adult female Magnificent Frigatebird from
Fort Myers Beach. The creature had been
caught up in fishing line off the coast and
numerous people had seen and called
about her. Finally, Kendall Fels succeeded
in capturing the Magnificent Frigate and
bringing her to shore.

Testing the frigatebird's wings

The 1.43-kilogram bird had previ-
ously had a hook in her wing and line
entanglement. "It's hard to evaluate their
flapping and symmetry because they are
so big," said Dr. Amber. "But I was able
to feel along the length of her wing with
my fingers, and there was no swelling or
lacerations. She was just beaten down
and exhausted from the struggle with the
fishing line."
Staff placed her in a double-wide cage
in ICU and provided her with fluids and
pain medication.
She wasn't interested in eating any
fish the next so staff tube-fed her fluids
and the Chinese herb Four Gentlemen.
Later they gave her a high-calorie carni-
vore formula. Dr. Amber said only about
25 percent of frigatebirds will eat in cap-
For the first three days the bird's wings
flapped unevenly or drooped to the side.
There were no fractures or major injuries,

I - P
The Magnificent Frigatebird at rest
but she had enough soft
tissue trauma to affect her
flapping strength.
Staff was anxious to
turn her around as quickly
as possible and get her
back to the wild before
she damaged her wings
in the cage or began to
lose weight.
Fortunately, by the
end of a week, her
strength improved and
she could flap her wings
in a strong and symmetri-
cal manner. Dr. Amber
gave the green light to let
her go.

They took her to the bridge at Blind
Pass, which connects Sanibel to Captiva.
With the water flowing from gulf to bay,
CROW staff members Nikki Talianko and
Zac Johnson held her out, and let her
flap and catch some wind.
The bird took off out of their hands
and successfully flew away.

SCCF: Black Clumps On Island
Beaches Are Tunicates, Not Tarballs

The heavy winds of this
past weekend brought
in a lot of pen shells
to island beaches, as well as
small black clumps that, at
first glance, resemble tarballs.
Conservation Foundation
Marine Lab Research
Scientists Eric Milbrandt and
Rick Bartleson identified them
as tunicates, also known as
sea pork. They began washing
up last summer following the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill
but the recent storms brought
them in again.
When they were wash-
ing up last summer, tunicate
expert Gretchen Lambert iden-
tified the genus as Eudistoma,
based on a photograph. In
addition, black solitary tuni-
cates have also been found on
island beaches.0

Legacy Film Series, Mr Reubens Goes
to Mars. This is the story of a withdrawn
older man who finds popularity in a
downtown swing dance club. Later, his
new-found zest for life starts to fade away
and is rekindled by the most unlikely
source. Following this short film is The
Beaches of Agnes. Celebrated French

Special Theater
Program For
F orida Repertory Theatrehas
announced Third Thursday Theatre
Night, a new package for residents
of Sanibel and Captiva.
Beginning November 18 with the
comedy Noises Off, Florida Rep will
bring a bus from Sanibel to the down-
town Fort Myers River District for a night
on the town and an evening of theater
for one price.
The evening begins on Sanibel at
Sweet Melissa's Cafe (1625 Periwinkle
Way), where pre-show dinner reservations
are available, though not included in the
price. The bus will depart at 6:30 p.m.
from Sweet Melissa's and will arrive at
the Historic Arcade Theatre in downtown
Fort Myers in time for the 8 p.m. perfor-
mance. The $49-per-person admission
price includes bus transportation and a
ticket to to production of Noises Off.
The first play of Florida Rep's Lucky
Season 13, Noises Off opened on
October 26 to three sold out previews,
a gala opening night, and rave reviews.
Florida Weekly called the play "a roller
coaster ride," The Naples Daily News
told readers that Noises Off "makes the
audience howl with laughter," and called
the production "a delicious comic treat!"
Noises Off follows the exploits of a
hapless fifth-rate theater troupe trying to
mount a silly sex farce called Nothing
On. As the cast stumbles through the
play on stage, a real-life farce is unfold-
ing behind the curtain. From the ill-fated
dress rehearsal to the last chaotic perfor-
mance, the delirium never ends.
"This is really a great opportunity
for groups of Sanibel and Captiva resi-
dents and visitors to see what we have
to offer them here in the River District,"
said Producing Artistic Director Robert
Cacioppo, "and we hope that this part-
nership with the island community will
only grow as the season goes on."
Florida Rep's Third Thursday Theatre
Night for Noises Off is November 18.
Again the bus will depart from Sweet
Melissa's Cafe at 6:30 p.m.

Laughs Galore

At Florida Rep

1N Toises Off,
IInow playing
- " at Florida
Repertory Theatre,
is a play within a
play that depicts
the onstage and
backstage antics
of a hapless acting
troupe touring in
an awful sex farce
called Nothing On. The cast includes
Dotty (Viki Boyle), who can barely
remember her lines, the elderly and
nearly deaf Selsdon (Herman Petras),
the blonde bombshell Brooke (Rachel
Lomax), the inarticulate Garry (Jason
Parrish), the overly nervous Frederick
(Kenneth Lay), the ever-game Belinda
(Carrie Lund), and the frustrated director

Jason Parrish, Carrie Lund and Viki Boyle
photo by Chip Hoffman

Lloyd Dallas, (Tony Cormier). Rachael
Endrizzi plays Poppy, the stage man-
ager, and Matthew Natale Rush is Tim,
the props manager. The play is divided
into three acts.

The zany cast

The first act is a disastrous dress
rehearsal with the director shouting out to
the actors from the audience, the actors
forgetting their lines, losing contact lens-
es, doors that won't open and misplaced
plates of sardines. It's enough to cause
a director to have a nervous breakdown
and he nearly does. It provides lots of
chuckles for the audience.
The second act allows the audience to
view what it's like backstage, when every-
thing that can go wrong, does go wrong.
Anyone who has ever been in a play can
relate to one or two of the scenarios.
This act was my favorite.
Between the last two acts we get to
watch the stagehands turn the set back
into what it was like in the first act. This
brought applause from the audience. The
third act has the actors going through
their paces again during an actual perfor-
mance, but actors miss their cues, props
are misplaced and total mayhem ensues.
While there is chaos onstage, it is
tightly-scripted chaos, and it all goes
off without a hitch. A two-story, seven-
door set has no obstructed views and fits
Florida Rep's stage perfectly. Slamming
doors, multiple trips up and down stairs,
false entrances, flubbed lines, miscues and
double entendres all take place while try-
ing to find a missing plate of sardines.
Playwright Michael Frayn says the
idea was borne around 1970 while he
was standing in the wings of a London
theater watching a performance of a
quick-change, arms-flapping farce he
had written for Lynn Redgrave and
Richard Briters. He said, "It was funnier
from behind than in front and I thought
that one day I must write a farce from
behind." He did, and Noises Off is one
of the craziest comedies ever to hit the
The whole cast has their funny
moments. Parrish's stumbling fall
down the steps in the third act brought
applause from the audience. Careful,
Jason. When we said "break a leg," we
didn't mean for you to take us literally.
Lomax doing her yoga backstage,
and Petras forgetting when he's to come
on stage also add humor to the perfor-
mance. It's controlled pandemonium with

critical timing and actors who can memo-

My Stars ***
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your rul-
ing planet, Mars, allows you to assume a sense
of command that can help you turn a chaotic
workplace situation into one that's orderly, pro-
ductive and, yes, even friendly.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Getting
a relationship that's been stuck in a rut up and
running again depends on how far you want to
run with it. Be honest with yourself as you con-
sider which decision to make.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be wary
of rumors that seem to be coming from every-
where this week. Waiting for the facts before
you act means never having to say you're sony
you followed the wrong lead.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A difficult
personal matter might prompt you to turn to a
trusted friend to help you sort through a maze of
emotional conflicts. The weekend should bring
some welcome news.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some of the
new people coming into the Lion's life could
play pivotal roles in future personal and profes-
sional matters. Meanwhile, an old friend might
have an important message.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A
delay in getting things moving on schedule can
be a blessing in disguise. Use this extra time to
do more research so you can buttress any of the
weaker points with solid facts.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You
might need to get involved in a personal matter
before it becomes a serious problem. Also be
wary of someone offering to mediate unless you
can be sure of his or her motives.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Taking sides in a workplace or domestic dispute
could prolong the problem. Stay out and stay

cool. Then you can be friends with both parties
when things settle down.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) A friendship has the potential to
become something more, and with this week's
aspects favoring romance, you might feel that
this possibility is worth exploring.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) The new job you want might require you to
relocate. If so, keep an open mind and weigh all
the positives and negatives before making your
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
A new relationship seems to be everything
you could have hoped for. Congratulations.
Meanwhile, it's not too early to get some feed-
back on that new project you're working on.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You
might have decided to get out of the fast-mov-
ing current and just float around hither and yon
for a while. But you might find that the new
opportunity is too tempting to turn down.

bringing out the best in people with kind deeds,

* On Nov 19, 1863, President Abraham
Lincoln delivers one of the most famous
speeches in American history at the dedica-

Using just 272 words, Lincoln brilliantly and
movingly articulated the meaning of the conflict
for a war-weary public. His address lasted just
two minutes.

not until 1918 that Congress officially adopted

the railroad time zones and put them under

of midnight on Nov. 13. The toll was 50 cents
per car in both directions.

future appearances on his show.

Craig Breedlove sets a new land-speed record
-- 600.601 mph. His car, the Spirit of America,

engine from a Navy jet.
* On Nov. 17, 1973, in the midst of the
Watergate scandal that eventually ended his
presidency, President Richard Nixon tells a
group of newspaper editors that he is "not a

Nixon resigned in August 1974.

who made the following observation: "Skill

* You've probably had some experience
with hail at some point in your life, but proba-

hailstone in the world fell in Bangladesh in
1986; it weighed a whopping 2.25 pounds. The
largest hailstone, which fell earlier this year in
South Dakota, measured 8 inches in diameter.
Be glad your car -- or your head -- wasn't in

* In 1666, the Great Fire of London
destroyed 13,200 homes, 87 parish churches
and St. Paul's Cathedral, and it left some 70,000
people homeless. It also provided the impetus
for the beginning of the insurance industry.
After the conflagration, Nicholas Barbon, a

space have to adapt themselves to changing
environments both when they enter space and
when they return home. Many astronauts and

Book By Sanibel Authors
Published In Holland

Ben Nijhuis, representing Verbum Publishing, presents Sanibel author Benno Benninga
with the first copy of Ondergedoken, the Dutch edition of Benninga's book, In Hiding

Tn Hiding, a World War II memoir coauthored by Sanibel residents Benno
Benninga and William Hallstead, has been published in a Dutch language edition
by Verbum Publishing in Laren, The Netherlands.
The English version of In Hiding was published in 2006 by Valentine Mitchell,
London. The story of the Benninga family's more than two-year ordeal hiding from
the Nazis' effort to eliminate Holland's Jews is based on Benninga's memories and the
detailed journal his father kept through the family's traumatic experience.
Teen-aged Benno Benninga, his father, mother and sister paid a farming family for
room, board and concealment as a last resort to escape apprehension and near-inevi-
table death in the Holocaust. Despite the often terrifying instability of the farming wife
and the couple's high-risk black market activities, the Benningas were never betrayed,
though the entire area apparently knew of their presence, and a police officer lived
across the street.
When living with the farm couple itself became unbearably oppressive, the
Benningas were sheltered by Reverend Piet Boes and his family in the final months
before the area was liberated by advancing Canadian troops.
This summer, the Dutch publisher presented Benninga, who had traveled to
Holland for the occasion, with the first copy of Ondergedoken, the Dutch version of
In Hiding. The presentation was made in the same Dutch reformed church where
the Benninga family hid during the final months of World War II. Some 80 people,
including friends and relatives of Benninga, the mayor and several other officials were
in attendance. Also present were the sons and daughters of the two families who had
saved the lives of Benninga and his family. During the emotional ceremony, Benninga
honored the memories of his parents in a heartfelt speech. In appreciation of the
Dutch publication of the book, Benninga presented the publisher with a crystal com-
memorative plaque, created for the occasion by Sanibel artist Luc Century.

from the book Sand in My Eyes
I like to think of fiction writing as a
form of play. That way it never loses its
joy. As a child, I loved playing with my
dollhouse. Opening its wooden doors, I
would name my dolls, dress them how I
wanted them to look, and think up plots
and problems for them to work through.
I gave each doll a different voice and
personality. It was in the midst of playing
that their stories and dialogue unfolded
naturally. Creating characters for a novel
is similar to this.
But just like child's play, actors must
play parts they cannot relate to and
writers create characters with problems
they themselves haven't personally expe-
rienced. In Sand in My Eyes, I had a
hard time relating to my main character

because she was so miserable. Not only
did I judge her for being full of doom and
gloom, I also feared I wouldn't be able to
write her out of the stagnant swamp of
misery I had put her in. And to think, this
was my main character!
I'll never forget the night I created her
and gave her a name. I was making din-
ner for my children, standing at the stove
waiting for a pot of water to boil and star-
ing at the ugly wallpaper in the kitchen of
our rental home - old-fashioned pink and
green obituaries from the year 1026 AD
and there it was - Anna Hott, daughter
of John Hott and Margaret, his wife,
born on the 31st day of October. Aha!
My children got dinner and my character
a name that night!
I wanted Anna to be overwhelmed
by the demands of motherhood and a
crumbling marriage so that hardly was
she seeing the beauty around her. It
would be like she was walking around
with sand in her eyes. A sleep-deprived
mother myself, I could relate to Anna's
laundry issues - the mounds of clothes
that formed and how the children jumped
in them, and sure, like her, no one told
me it could be so hard, that motherhood
gives indescribable joy in exchange for
who we are as individuals, and that the
accumulation of it all, of worrying, caring
for, responding to their every whimper,
oh, and all the housework and grocery
shopping, the cooking of things they do
not like and cleaning would turn me (and
her) into a completely different person -
a mom!
But I could not relate to my character
and her marital issues. My husband is my

best friend and a loving hands-on-father
and I had no idea how to rescue my char-
acter from the cheating husband I had
given her. But I had to. Just as I gave my
dolls happily ever after endings, writers
often feel they must work out the prob-
lems their characters face. So I created a
new character, Cora, to help her through.
Cora is the one who inspired Anna to cry
out to the Lord because He hears every
person that cries out to Him in despair.
It was all I could think of to pull my char-
acter from the fiery forest of anger and
resentment she was in.
But Fedelina, I created for myself, to
help me deal with my messy house and
'chicken-with-its-head-cut-off' phase of
motherhood that I was in. Through this
character, it was like the older me was
talking to the younger me, telling me it all
will pass, that one day my house will be
quiet and clean and my children grown
and gone and I would do anything to
have my house a mess and my children
little again. These characters who tell
me what I need to hear, the ones who
talk sense into me and get me through a
particular stage of life are my favorite to
"Fedelina shared with me the insight I
needed to rake through my mess. I don't
think it was her intention to do gardening
on me then, and I don't know whether
she knew that one by one, our small
woman-to-woman talks were helping me
pull the ugly from my life, so that beauty,
peace, simplicity and contentment could
sprout forth strong and free. We were
two females gabbing away. She was the
older widow out growing flowers and I

was the mother of three caught up in the
weeds." - Sand in My Eyes

Heart's Desire
over again.
Best of all, Maslar really plays for
keeps when it comes to judging men, and
no doubt has met plenty of losers by list-
ing the traits that are big-time, automatic
"deal breakers" for her: "racist, felon,
facial tattoos, bad toupee, bad hygiene,
hates music, illiterate and laughs at me."
On the other hand, she lists her "must
have" qualities for men as: "single, avail-
able, own transportation, own hair, excel-
lent hygiene, music lover, a love of read-
ing and a great sense of humor."
She sets a very high bar, but never
mentions finances or money. I wonder if
a beachfront condo or a fat bank account
could possibly offset the tattoos or an
ugly hairpiece?

Buddy Walk Draws More Walkers,
More Funds For Down Syndrome Kids

B lue skies and a brisk ' .. ......^^..

throughout the sec-

Saturday at South Seas Island

a total of 25 family and 22

percent from last year.
"I am overwhelmed by the

financially and with the walker

the community spirit of the

the previous fiscal year's activities. More than 400 supporters attended last year.
A reception will kick-off the evening with live entertainment and heavy hors
d'oeuvres at 5:30 p.m. followed by a presentation that highlights SWFLCF's reach
into its five-county service area.

"We are a regional community foundation and many of our decisions and activi-
ties during the last fiscal year were focused on reaching further into the communities
of Charlotte, Glades and Hendry as well as Lee and Collier counties," said Julia East,
president and CEO. "We will continue this focus in 2011 and share how we plan to
further enhance the evolving community needs in those counties."
During its 2010 fiscal year, SWFLC granted just under $3 million to more than
100 different organizations supporting education, animal welfare, the arts and human
services. Lee Mental Health was the recipient of a $48,360 initiative grant to begin
a telemedicine program and $50,000 was awarded to Harry Chapin Food Bank for
mobile service and food distribution.
As part of the 2011 grant cycle currently under way, the foundation recently pre-
sented the Hendry Regional Medical Center Foundation $10,000 to improve its public
waiting areas.

Sanibel Bicycle Club
Opens New Season

Treasurer Mike Miller, Jeanne Mallon, Tom Sharbaugh, Vice President Mary Miller, Neal
Halloran, and President Ken Bergstrom
submitted by Tom Sharbaugh
The Sanibel Bicycle Club gathered at Bowman's Beach last Saturday for the
club's annual picnic, the traditional kickoff of cycling and social activities.
Club members soaked up the sunshine, met up with friends, shared stories
of summer cycling trips up north and abroad, and then feasted on a picnic lunch
in the shade of palms and gumbo limbo trees. The universal sentiment seemed to
be: "We're glad to be back in Sanibel where the weather is great and the paths are
flat!" Members returning from the summer off-island were delighted to learn that
Sanibel recently received a Bike Friendly Community designation from the League
of American Bicyclists.
Now in its 17th year, the bicycle club is home to several hundred members who
range from beginners to avid cyclists. Club activities include rides of various lengths
and speeds, so that all riders can find their comfort level. "We have members riding
all kinds of bikes, from beach cruisers to hybrids to fancy racing bikes, and even three-
wheelers," said club president Ken Bergstrom. "We're a recreational riding group, not
a hard-core road riding club, and social events are a big part of the club's activities."

Closing Th Rih Inuac Agn

MakesAl Ile Difference

On Sanibel, the
club conducts a weekly
"ride to breakfast"
on Saturday morn-
ings. Saturday riders
meet up at the Sanibel
Community Park at
7:30 a.m. (helmets
required). Ride distances
can range from just a
few miles up to 25-plus * - -
miles for those who ride . .
to Captiva for breakfast. �
The club also holds
monthly off-island rides,
which are sometimes
day-trips to nearby
ride sites like Pine
Island, Venice Beach, Mike Miller and Doug Dietrich greet picnic attendees at the
Alva and Naples, and sign-in table.
sometimes multiple-
day trips to more dis-
tant locations like the
Everglades National
Park, Lake Okeechobee,
Clearwater, Inverness,
Orlando and West
Palm Beach. Program
Chairman Sharon
Hannon said, "Florida
has many wonderful,
well-maintained state
trails that are easy to
get to from Sanibel; we
find that riding the state
trails is a great way to
learn about the rest of
The focal point of the
club's social calendar is a
monthly pot luck dinner Past President Bob Lynd shares a story with Joel and Bunny
held at The Community Ospa
House, where the eve-
ning's program is usually a cycling-related presentation.
In addition to its riding and social activities, the bicycle club is also committed to
community activities in support of Sanibel's path system, with path safety as its pri-
mary focus. The Trails In Motion Fund, a 501(c)3 established by the club several years
ago, accepts tax-deductible donations from those interested in supporting and improv-
ing the path system. The Trails In Motion Fund has partnered with the City of Sanibel
to help fund Sanibel's Shared Use Path Master Plan and construction of a new path
connection between Pine Avenue and the Blind Pass Bridge.

member, or supporting the Trails In Motion Fund can do so via the club website: sani-

Halloween Fun

On The Island

Maxine Arnheiter

Many island and vacationing fami-
lies came to The Community
House to were play carnival
games and take hay rides. Salli Kirkland,
Sanibel Community Association board
president estimates it was "our largest
attended, best costumed and most candy
distributed carnival yet."
Kirkland and her daughter, Vanessa
Flynt, originated the idea and have been
the carnival event planners since 2000.
Designed as a Halloween trick-or-treat
spot for the entire family, this year's car-
nival had 18 games with plenty of candy,
a prize booth, dining area serving $2
meals, and a hay ride that included a skit
at the theater.
Adults were encouraged to wear
costumes as well as the kids, and this
year families got in the spirit portraying
themes from Star Wars, and The Wizard
of Oz, complete with talking apple tree
and flying monkey.

Kirkland says The
Community House com-
munity, businesses that
continually donate funds
and supplies, and the
volunteer spirit. Over 50
volunteers contributed,
wearing costumes and
helping where needed.
The initial goal was to
provide a safe and well
lit place for young chil- L '

owned land to the east (including Pond
Apple Park) with conservation land to
the west (Roadside City Park, SCCF and
Refuge land).
The purchase price for 28.3 acres of
wildlife habitat and the historic home of
one of Sanibel's first families is $4 mil-
Consistent with earlier land acquisi-
tions, SCCF needs to raise an additional
10 percent of the purchase price, or
$400,000, to support the initial restora-
tion and ongoing management of the
land in perpetuity. Since its founding in
1967, SCCF has helped acquire and
preserve almost 2,300 acres of wildlife

Plans include the restoration of the
1896 Bailey family home as an interpre-
tive center, where Bailey family history
as well as the conservation history of the
islands will be told through self-guided
tours. The initial restoration will cost
$225,000, not including the sweat equity
offered by SCCF's volunteer carpenters,
the Hammerheads. Future plans include a
butterfly house and a native plant nursery
presence -- a place for teaching ethno-
botany and sustainable home gardening
through the use of an edible classroom
growing on the premises.
As needed each year, the last com-
ponent of the fundraising campaign
supports the quality work being done in
all SCCF program areas, and $675,000
must be raised as part of this campaign.
Counting land acquisition, restoration
of wildlife habitat and the Bailey home,
and program needs, $5.3 million must be
raised by June 24, 2011.

PGA Tips

Playing From

Bermuda Rough
by Matt Oakley,
PGA Golf
* Irn Florida we
"I, have a type
* of grass called
Bermuda that is
prevalent at most
i golf courses. When
this grass grows
long it can make
it very difficult to
hit solid and straight shots towards your
target. In my opinion, there are three
types of lies in this Bermuda rough.
Here is a tip for playing out of each of
these 3 lies:
Lie #1 Fluffy
This is the one where the ball is sit-
ting up in the rough on top of the grass
Because the ball is sitting on top of
the grass we do not want the club to hit
the ground, rather we want to brush the
grass. To do this, choke down on the club
several inches at address and make prac-
tice swings only brushing the grass, not
going all the way to the ground. Hit the
shot with the brushing stroke and it will
fly right out.

Lie #2 Middle
This is the one where the ball is not
quite fluffy, but also not all the way down
to the ground.
This lie demands that we go back
to the full length of the club at address.
Next, we want to use a little bit of wrist
action to take the club back; this will
allow the club to "dig" into the grass a
little through impact and propel the ball
into the air. For this lie we want to only
go down through the grass enough to get
the ball out; do not let the club strike the
ground at impact.
Lie #3 Buried
This is the one where the ball is sitting
all the way down to the ground and you
can barely see the top of it if you find it
at all.
On this one we want to use a lot of
wrist action on the backswing so the club
will come down steeply through the grass
into the ball. We want to make sure on
this one that we strike the ground firmly
to get the ball to pop out. Also, make
sure you follow through to a complete
finish; do not let the grass stop the club.
These shots just take a little practice to
know how hard to swing the club to get
your ball to go the distance and trajectory
you want.#

Sanibel Adult Softball League
Island Electric
Wins Shocker
by Nick Brown
L ast Wednesday night Sanctuary
Island Electric softball team stepped
onto the diamond against the heav-
ily favored All Island Glass. In the off
season, All Island picked up Harold the
Hammer and Dynamite Daemon Law.
Despite having these two heavy hitters,
All Island Glass was squeegeed off the
field by Sanctuary Island Electric. All
Island Glass's famous last words were,
"Don't taze me, bro," as Sanctuary
Electric sent 10,000 gigawatts of batting
power into their opponents for a 21-3
win-their first of the season.
Electric sparkplug Chris Brightman
said, "We knew it was going to be a
tough game so we had to unplug the

surge protector."
The other big matchup of the evening
was a collision of megapowers-the only
two undefeated teams-Sanibel Grill
Wrecking Crew and the Bay to Beach
Bombers. It was a one-sided fight though
as the Bombers imploded. Sanibel Grill
took a solid lead in the third inning and
slow-cooked Bay to Beach the rest of the
game to win 19-5.
In the final game of the evening,
Williams and Williams buried the hatchet
into the Aztec Plumbing Warriors. After
getting into a 14-2 deficit, Aztec began
to dig themselves out of the drain, but
Williams and Williams foreclosed on their
hopes. Final: Williams and Williams 14
Aztec Plumbing 9.

Beachview Men's The Dunes
Golf Association Womens Golf

by Ed O'Neil
The Beachview Men's Golf
Association set sail on the 2010-
11 season on Election Day. When
the first week was over they had more
close competition than Nancy Pelosi
could muster from sea to shining sea.
The opening two-ball event on
November 2 was the closest thing to
a runaway... the winning team's 65
was good for a one-shot victory. Jim
Purviance, Roger Triftshauser and George
Witte shared the shot-making.
Head Pro Scott Hatto may order a
photo-finish camera if the November 6
opening scramble set the tone for the
season. First place required a playoff
between two teams at 43.75. Two teams
matched scorecards to settle third place
after they each posted 46.25.
When the smoke cleared Wayne
Turner, Jack Tukey, Rene Lohser and
Richard Redner had edged out Fred
Zimmer, Jim Purviance, Dick Chocol and
Stan Shaft. Shaft survived an errant line
drive from Capt. Zimmer's driver, which
hit his shoulder.
The surviving third-place team had
Dave Wiseley, Al Krause, Bill Sadd and
Tony Baldino sharing the chores.
The Beachview men's group (and the
club's ladies group, too) welcomes new
members to what has been an island key
to rapid social integration for many years.
The season includes five more lun-
cheons, a dinner, a season-ending cock-
tail party, three major tournaments and
twice-weekly competition. New members
can join the fun by visiting the Beachview
pro shop. The food events more than
replace the $100 annual dues. The long-
lasting friendships are free.

Shark Shootout Returns Next Month
With Some Of World's Best Golfers
by Ed Frank
T wenty-four of the greatest golfers in the world, including
4' I10 members of this year's Ryder Cup teams and eight
with 2010 PGA tournament victories, will compete here
-December 10 to 12 in the 22nd annual Shark Shootout hosted
by Hall of Famer Greg Norman.
for the 10th consecutive year.
The 24 athletes who will compete as 12 two-man teams have
amassed 156 total career victories including eight major champi-
onships from seven different players.
"The balance of international stars, American players, rookies,
young guys and veterans this year is ideal," said Norman. His shootout has long been
recognized as one of the top post-tour events.
Norman's partner this year is Matt Kutcher, this year's PGA Tour money leader
who is ranked 10th in the world. Kutcher finished in the top 10 in 11 tournaments
this past season and captured one of the FedEx Cup playoffs. He was also a U.S.
Ryder Cup member.
Returning to defend their 2009 Shootout victory are Jerry Kelly and Steve Stricker.
The tournament will again feature an alternate shot format the first day, better ball
competition the second day and a final round scramble on Sunday, the final day. The
Golf Channel will televise first-round action and NBC will carry the weekend competi-
The following are the two-man teams:
Norman and Kutcher
Kelly and Stricker
Justin Leonard and Scott Verplank
Mark Calcavecchia and Jeff Overton
Dustin Johnson and lan Poulter
Chris DiMarco and Anthony Kim
Darren Clarke and Graeme McDowell
David Duval and Davis Love III
Jason Day and Rory Sabbatini
KJ Choi and Mike Weir
Fred Funk and Kenny Perry
Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson
This year free admission is offered to active, reserve and retired military person-
nel and their families throughout the week including the pre-tournament activities on
Wednesday and Thursday. Military personnel need only to present their identification
at the tournament's main gate for admission.
The Shark Shootout raises funds for research and awareness for CureSearch for
Children's Cancer. CureSearch is the world's largest childhood cancer research organi-
zation serving more than 200 member institutions.
It's Final; Cubs Staying in Arizona
Voters in Mesa, Arizona, voted overwhelmingly last week to approve the construc-
tion of an $84 million spring training facility for the Chicago Cubs, ending officially
any hopes that the Cubs would move to Naples.
The project, scheduled for completion in 2013, received a 63 percent "yes" vote.
The approved proposition authorizes expenditures up to $99 million for construction
of a new stadium, training facilities, roads and parking lots.
The Cubs have trained in Arizona for more than 50 years.
A group in Naples had lobbied enthusiastically to bring the Cubs here once it
became known that the Chicago team was unhappy with their present quarters.
It wasn't an easy sell in Arizona as the first proposal called for a surcharge on ticket
sales by the other 14 Cactus Team teams to fund a new stadium for the Cubs. That
idea was shot down by Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig.
Everblades Win Two of Three from South Carolina on the Road
The Florida Everblades began a six-game road trip last week taking two of three
from the South Carolina Stingrays in Charleston, South Carolina.
Florida won the rubber game Sunday by erasing a three-goal third-period deficit to
capture a 4-3 overtime victory. The win improved their season record to 7-4-0.
The road journey continues this weekend for three games at Greenville. The
Everblades return home to the friendly ice of Germain Arena next week hosting
Toledo Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.#

Buddy Walk Draws More Walkers
"It's really great to be able to support an event that raises funds to help our
special needs population out locally," said Jaime Melendez, a senior recreation
specialist with Lee County Parks and Recreation at the Karl J. Drews Special
Needs Center.

Jordan Hayduk family, Cannella Mullins and friends


Madison Harder, 4, from Cape Coral, in the bounce house

There was a good turnout for the second annual Buddy Walk


The Island Store team, including Shay Thomas, Caitlyn Arnold, 7, Jaime Melendez,
Teara Melendez, 4, and Alana Melendez, 2

With walkers from Fort Myers, Pine Island, Sanibel, Capitva and Cape Coral,
the local community was well represented at the 1.5-mile walk down the main
drive at the resort. At the end of their trek, the walkers were treated to a cook-
out, three bounce houses and live music by islander Danny Morgana.
"We also had two families from New Jersey participate," said Hayduk. "One
with a Down syndrome daughter who happened to be staying at (the resort) and
another New Jersey family with a niece with Down syndrome."
The walk also attracted parents of children with other intellectual disabili-
ties this year. Parents remarked on the remarkable and empowering impact of
Hayduk's dedication to bring the event to the local community.
"We participated in another event a few years ago but were disillusioned,"
said Lisa Harder, of Cape Coral, mother of five-year-old Madison who has Down
syndrome. "Rick's really making a difference for our kids and any way we can
support him we will."
Hayduk says the event will continue at South Seas as long as he's there.
"We live in an extraordinary community where so many people are support-
ing the growth, development and inclusionary desires of individuals with Down
syndrome," he said.
"The progress made in the past 20 years through legislation and community
initiatives give those of us with Down children confidence in their future."O

Farewell To The Lands Down Under

Mt. Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand at 12,316 feet

submitted by Patty Molnar
Our three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand ended on the south island
of New Zealand in Christchurch. We were there overnight, and had only a
brief sightseeing tour of the city. The damage from the severe earthquake
that had shaken the city a few weeks before was not particularly evident, owing,
our tour director said, to earthquake building codes that are strongly enforced and
adhered to. One did, however, see occasional piles of rubble, and some of the
shops in the arts and crafts center we visited were still closed because of damage.
The next day we flew back up to the north island to the town of Taupo located on
New Zealand's largest lake, formed from volcanic activity. There we visited a friend of

Huka Falls, Taupo, New Zealand

ours from Houston who had married a Kiwi and moved to New Zealand 27 years ago.
This beautiful spot was a welcome change from the pace of the tour, giving Attila and
me a chance to unwind. We did some hiking along the Huka River, seeing both the
impressive Huka Falls and the famous Huka Lodge where Queen Elizabeth of England
stays when she is in the area.
Our own hotel offered fabulous views of the snow-topped mountains surrounding
the lake. Although it was the beginning of spring, it was still quite chilly there with a
cold wind making it even more so. Australia was much warmer.
After five days in Taupo we flew to Auckland, along the way seeing Mt. Cook,
New Zealand's highest mountain. From Auckland we started our long journey back to
Florida, bidding a wistful farewell to what the Maoris call the Land of the Long White
To sum up: For Attila and me, this was a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the lands "down
under." We saw unsurpassed natural beauty, learned about unique cultures and were
touched by the friendly, easy-going nature of the people. A word of caution, though:
Because of the long distance from Sanibel, Australia and New Zealand are best vis-
ited when one is still somewhat young and fit. An older couple from the U.K on the
Australian leg of the tour struggled a bit, missing various activities because of colds and
Another point worth mentioning is the quality of the food and wine both countries.
In the four weeks we were there we did not have one bad meal. The food is delicious,
imaginatively prepared and presented, and the service professional and unrushed. We
in the U.S. could learn quite a bit in this regard.
We miss the excellent coffee, each cup individually brewed, and our lattes or "flat
whites," as they are known there.
After untold hours of flying and waiting to catch flights in three different airports,
we were happy to return to Sanibel, gratified to have learned something about the his-
tory and culture of another part of our world. O

Estate Planning Trends
by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified
Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney, CPA

F om Barack
Obama's elec-
tion a couple
I of years ago to this
week's Tea Party
revolt and take-
over of Congress,
America's political
pendulum seems to
be swinging faster
than ever. Today I am going to share
with you 10 estate planning trends that
I've been watching develop over the
last several years and discuss how they
might affect your plan:
1. Increasing federal taxes. On
January 1, the Bush tax cuts expire.
Whether or not they are extended, one
thing is certain. Taxes are increasing. If
it's not an estate tax increase, it will be
an income tax increase. Somehow the
government is going to try to take more
out of our pockets. Since dead people
don't vote, (unless they're from Chicago!)
estates are an easy tax target. This will
make advanced estate tax and income
tax planning that much more crucial than
ever before.
2. Increasing state taxes. The
federal government isn't the only taxing
authority facing budget shortfalls. States
will be looking to take more taxes from
their residents. This will make Florida, a
tax haven with no state income tax, no

'r9- =*_

,,,I:).1 - . I: .1 .' - , , . .3 ..8.:.,, p

state inheritance tax, and no state intan-
gible tax that much more appealing for
the wealthy.
3. Aggressive state taxing author-
ities. Because individuals with dual resi-
dences will be flocking to low-tax states
like Florida in order to save taxes, the
northern states with the highest tax bur-
dens will become increasingly aggressive
in trying to tax former residents. This will
make proper Florida estate planning that
much more crucial.
4. Estate tax savings techniques
removed. One way that the federal and
state governments may increase taxes
without increasing rates is to outlaw plan-
ning techniques that have been in use
for decades. Grantor Retained Annuity
Trusts, Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts,
and Family Limited Partnerships may be
facing restrictions that we never had to
worry about before. If you are considering
implementing advanced estate planning,
you may want to complete and fund the
plan before any restrictions are put into
5. Income tax planning will affect
more estate plans. Many people don't
realize that the federal estate tax system is
different than the federal income tax sys-
tem. Estate taxes are on the value of the
assets at the time of death. Income taxes
are often levied in addition to estate taxes
on assets like IRAs and annuities, which
have deferred taxable income inherent
inside of them. Since the 1970s, IRAs
and annuities are making up a larger and
larger share of the typical estate. Careful
income and estate tax coordination will
become critical over the course of the
next several years.
6. Tax -free life insurance may be
limited. Life insurance has traditionally
been income tax free because the idea
behind life insurance was that it provided
middle class families a safety net if the
primary wage earner died. In the last few
decades, however, life insurance has been
used by the wealthy as an income tax free
haven with the popularity of whole and
universal life policies - which are arguably
investment vehicles disguised as life insur-
ance. The politicians have noticed this

239-472-2311 * 800-388-2311
* www.remax-oftheislands.com/sfisher.com

trend. We should all be watchful when
that happens.
7. Probate and estate litigation
will become more common. Our soci-
ety is more litigious than ever - and that
appears to be affecting the estate plan-
ning arena as well. There are also more
blended families than what was common
in the past. Step-parents, half-siblings and
other such relations can create hot points
for controversy in wills and trusts. This
is but one issue of many that can cause
conflict among beneficiaries of an estate.
Keeping up one's estate plan, therefore,
will become more crucial than ever.
8. Planning around your benefi-
ciaries' legal and financial prob-
lems. When creating an estate plan,
you're going to have to be more aware
of your beneficiaries' potential legal and
financial problems. If a beneficiary has
an upside down mortgage that is going
to be foreclosed upon, for example, the
bank may confiscate the inheritance you
leave him to satisfy a deficiency judgment.
Taking steps to protect your spouse's and
children's inheritance from the reaches
of their potential predators and creditors
is quickly becoming a mandatory step in
fashioning your estate plan.
9. Increased life expectancies
affect estate plan. We are living on
average up to 20 years longer than our
ancestors of only a couple of generations
ago. Our retirement savings have to last
longer. Our children won't inherit until
they are on social security themselves. All
of these issues should play into a proper
estate plan.
10. Laws are more complicated.
The laws governing wills, trusts, pro-
bate and trust administrations are more
detailed than ever before. Those who
are serving in fiduciary capacities for
loved ones need to know what their legal
responsibilities are, or they could end up
with unforeseen liabilities (see item #7
These are but a few of the trends
that have been developing over the past
several years. I hope bringing them into
focus helps you when you speak to your
own legal counsel.

Arranging Help



v Copyrighted Material

Available from Commercial News Providers

by Marcia Feeney
n all my years
as an interior
decorator, I am
asked more ques-
tions about furniture
arranging than
anything else. So
here are a few sug-
gestions you might
consider when fac-
ing the furniture

placement dilemma!
1. Place large furniture pieces first.
It's definitely a mistake to start with your
smaller pieces. I guarantee your frustra-
tion level will definitely increase if you try
to start the process with small tables and
accent pieces.
2. In rooms with vaulted ceilings,
you might want to place your largest
furniture pieces close to the highest wall.
Furnishings such as oversized entertain-
ment armoires immediately come to
mind. Can you visualize a large entertain-
ment center placed on a small wall oppo-
site a high wall in a vaulted ceiled room?
Balance and symmetry would immediately
fly out the window!
3. Try angling your furniture. When
your furniture pieces-chairs, sofas, love
seats-are all lined up flat against a wall,
you lose the opportunity to create inter-
esting conversational groupings, let alone
the fact that this room now resembles an

office waiting area!
4. When selecting furniture to be
placed in smaller rooms, follow these
rules of thumb:
* pieces with rounded corners will
work best,
* don't select large or oversized pieces,
* try to find good pieces that are tall
and shallow to give your small space
more height,
* open shelving styles will help your
space seem more expansive,
* opt for a more tailored look in
upholstered furniture pieces, and
* above all remember these three
important guidelines: convenience, com-
fort and composition!

Rain In My
Living Room?
. by Bryan Hayes
Iget quite a reac-
tion from this
, .- r statement. The
S At '_ visual you get on
This one is pretty
scary if you think
about it, but I have
seen this phenom-
enon more than
once. What I am
referring to is water
leaking from your air conditioning sys-
Let me explain. Your air handler is
located usually over some part of the liv-
ing space. From time to time this system
will leak. This is due to the drainage
system for your air conditioning being
impeded in some way. The result is often
that it will appear to be raining in your
living room, bedroom or some other

undesirable place in your home. This is
often due to lack of maintenance.
There are some precautions that can
be taken to minimize the risk. The first
one being what was already mentioned,
maintenance. Also change your filters on
a regular basis, once a month especially
when its really hot out. And the final
precaution that can be taken is to have a
float switch installed. This is a little device
that is installed at the air handler. Its func-
tion is to stop the system from running
if there is water where it shouldn't be. If
the system is not running, water will no
longer be pulled out of the air and the
system will not overflow. This is especially
important for absentee owners.
Now with that said, I will be the first
to tell you that nothing is foolproof, mis-
haps still happen. But if you can take
some precautions it will help minimize the

Sanibel-Captiva Lions Screen
Islanders For Vision And Hearing

Peripheral vision being screened by Lion George Veillette

T wenty-nine people showed up for the Lions' first vision screening of the sea-
son on October 22 at the Sanibel Recreation Complex. People were screened
for visual acuity, stereopsis, macular degeneration, blood pressure, glaucoma
and hearing combined with a family history. Forty-two percent of those people
needed to be referred to their physician for further examination.
"The goal of the Lions organization is to eliminate preventable blindness and glau-
coma, an insidious, painless disease affecting the peripheral vision that can culminate
in blindness," stated Lion Tom Rothman.
While the screenings cannot diagnose a condition, Rothman said, they may provide
an early warning that additional professional testing is necessary.
The screening schedule at the Sanibel Recreation Complex is as follows:
* Diabetes, Friday, November 19, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
* Vision/Hearing, Frday, December 17, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
* Diabetes, Friday, January 14, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.0

Myth #1: The new law has made it impossible to
protect your assets from nursing home costs.
Truth: While the rules have changed, good planning
opportunities exist.

Myth #2: Proper planning can serve to save your
home's equity.
Truth: No matter the home's value, the government
cannot take the home if you title it and plan correctly.

Myth #3: If you're already in a nursing home, it's too
late to protect your assets.
Truth: Even if you're in a nursing home, you can still
protect the assets you have.

Brain Game
November is National Alzheimer's
Month and to help bring more
attention to this disease, Lee
Memorial Health System's Lee Memory
Care has created an innovative program
called the Healthy Brain Initiative of
Lee County (HBI) to provide ways for
residents of Southwest Florida to boost
brain power and fight the onset of
memory disorders.
The Healthy Brain Initiative will
sponsor a Brain Game Challenge on
Thursday, November 18 at the Edison
Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Come and test your brain skills. Join in
the competition by playing various brain
games and win prizes while exercising
your brain. Regular mental workouts may
help to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.
Admission is one canned good for the
soup kitchen or a $1 donation to pur-
chase food.

Memory is arguably our most prized
possession. Yet, memory is oftentimes
overlooked during healthcare check-
ups. This can be attributed to common
misperceptions and fears. Perhaps the
most common of which is an apprehen-
sion that something might be wrong with
our minds and corresponding mispercep-
tions that nothing can be done about it.
This isn't so. Many forms of memory
loss are reversible and, for other forms of
memory loss, early detection is the key.

New Outpatient
Surgery Center
Until now, most patients needing
outpatient surgery must undergo
their procedure in an inpatient
setting at one of the Lee Memorial
Health System hospitals. Beginning
November 15, many patients will be
able to visit the new Outpatient Surgery
Center located off Colonial Boulevard
near the 1-75 ramp (8970 Colonial
Center Drive, Fort Myers).
The 20,000-square-foot facility fea-
tures four operating rooms and two pro-
cedure rooms as well as new, state-of-the-

art equipment.
"We decided to open the Outpatient
Surgery Center to provide a better overall
experience for our patients," said Dave
Cato, system director of outpatient ser-
vices. "Not having to go to the hospital
means shorter waits and more conve-
nience, while still receiving the same high
quality of care. It's ideal, because patients
can go to one location for diagnostic
procedures, physician appointments, and
now outpatient procedures and surger-
ies," Cato said.
Outpatient procedures that will be per-
formed at the surgery center include:
* breast surgeries
* needle biopsies
* lumpectomies
* gynecological surgeries
* urology procedures
" bariatric surgeries
" pain management procedures
" plastic surgeries

Sanibel Post Office raffle held during
October to mark Breast Cancer Month -

and the post office is a winner too, hav-

Southwest Florida.
Sanibel sold 36,652 stamps worth
$20,158.60. That translates to $4,030

were priced at 55 cents each (11 cents
over the 44-cent first class value) with
11 cents per stamp, or $2.20 per sheet,
going to breast cancer research.
Collectively, the 10 offices in the
region, including Sanibel, Fort Myers,
Cape Coral, Naples, Marco Island,
Estero, Pineland, and Bonita Springs,
sold 9,278 sheets of stamps.
The raffle presentation is the culmi-
nation of a monthlong effort by all the
postal clerks. Anyone who bought three
sheets of the special pink stamps was
entered into the raffle for Postal Clerk
Laura Ball's acrylic study of a Sanibel
native bird.
Greenfield said she always buys the
stamps to support the campaign. Her sis-
ter is a 15-year breast cancer survivor.
Ball and her colleague Jonelle Durazzo
turned practically everything in the post
office pink to draw attention to the cam-
paign. The two women made displays

Reform: Where
Are We Now?
submitted by Carla Benninga, President
T he League
of Women I
of Sanibel's
first meeting
of the season
will be held on
November 16
at 7 p.m. at the
Sanibel Public Library, Room #4.
The topic will be Healthcare reform:
Where are we now?
The speaker will be Sally A. Jackson,
system director, Community Projects, Lee
Memorial Health System.
Jackson has been part of the lead-
ership team at Lee Memorial Health
System Since October 2005. In her cur-
rent role, she is responsible for govern-
ment and community relations, media
and public Affairs, as well as various
special projects. She works closely with
elected officials and their staff at the local,
state and federal levels on policy and
funding issues that affect healthcare deliv-
ery and cost for Lee County residents.
She collaborates with other community,
health, education and human services
organizations to develop working solu-
tions to address local health-related needs.

In 2007, Jackson was part of
the LMHS team that supported the
Community Health Visioning 2017
Project. She supported the Visioning
Steering Community of 38 community
leaders who guided research and out-
reach efforts to hear from a wide array
of constituencies and envision changes
that could be implemented over the next
10 years to improve healthcare in Lee
County. Their final eight recommenda-
tions to the LMHS board of directors
were accepted and are now being built
into both LMHS and community 10-year
strategic plans.
Prior to joining LMHS, Jackson's
career as a civic entrepreneur included
leadership roles in Illinois state govern-
ment, chambers of commerce, higher
education, and publicly traded corpora-
tions. She and her husband Mike have
been residents of Cape Coral since 2003.
"We are looking forward to a very
informative evening on this very hot
topic" said Carla Benninga, president of
the LWV of Sanibel.
The public is invited to bring their
The League of Women Voters is
a nonpartisan political organization
that encourages informed and active
participation in government, works to
increase understanding of major public
policy issues, and influences public poli-
cy through education and advocacy.0

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
by Constance
Q: What is the
best method to
change my counter-
S o productive behav-
A: From the way
you handle various
S issues in your life
I whether productive-
ly or in a maladap-
tive fashion, there is a specific reason
for everything you do in life and it is also
part of the programming found in your
subconscious mind. Since you are looking
to change your counterproductive behav-
iors and sustain real permanent positive
changes, you can learn to communicate
with your subconscious by speaking the
language it understands. When you do,
you will have the power to rewrite your
own script that directs your thoughts and
behaviors, and begin effortlessly creating
exactly the life you desire and eliminating
the counterproductive behaviors.
Reprogramming occurs through
hypnosis. People have successfully used
hypnosis to change various behaviors suc-
cessfully, including:
* releasing counterproductive behav-
iors such as smoking and overeating,
* retaining and maintaining a positive

* reducing stress and assisting with
overall good rest,
* increasing focus and concentration,
* overcoming fears, phobias, and
meeting challenges comfortably,
* increasing memory retention, and
* increasing overall awareness.
Dr Clancy is a licensed mental
health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public

Don't Be An
Energy Turkey
by Laura Zocki Puerto, LCEC
Public Relations Specialist
Preparing Thanksgiving dinner can
be quite a juggling act. From the
dicing and slicing to the basting
and baking, you focus on making sure
every delicious detail is attended to.

While you cook this year, LCEC recom-
mends the following energy-saving tips:
* Keep your oven door shut: We all
love to sneak peeks in the oven. This
year, resist the urge by using your oven
light. Remember, every time you open
that oven, the temperature drops by 25
to 30 degrees (in addition to raising the
temperature in your kitchen).
* Fill the oven: Plan to cook multiple
things at once. By utilizing all of the
space in your oven, you cut down on the

time that your oven has to be on.
* Make friends with your microwave:
While the big dishes bake in the oven,
utilize your microwave for smaller items.
A microwave uses up to 30 percent less
energy than a conventional oven.
* Choose your burners and lids wisely:
A lot of energy can be lost by using small
pots on big burners. Arrange your pots
so that they match with the burner size.
In addition, be smart when placing lids on
pots and pans. The tighter the cover, the

* Turn off the oven before show time.
When your feast is almost finished cook-
ing, turn off the oven and burners to save
* Use a cooler: Rather than opening
your refrigerator over and over to get
out drinks and other cold items, utilize a
Happy Thanksgiving from LCEC.0
