The B-24 Liberator
by Richard K. Cook
The equally famous B-17 Flying
Fortress may have made more
movies and captured more head-
lines, but the B-24 Liberator was the
aerial Mack truck of World War II, flying
both in Europe and Asia, under the flags
of the United States, Britain, France and
several other allied air forces.
Designed in 1938 by Consolidated
Aircraft Company of San Diego, it
was mass produced by the Ford Motor
Company at Willow Grove, Detroit,
Michigan, under the personal supervi-
sion of Henry Ford. At its production
peak in Detroit, one B-24 was produced
every hour, reaching 650 a month in
1944. The Liberator was also produced
in San Diego, Tulsa, Dallas and Fort
Worth. The Fort Worth factory is in use
today under Lockheed Martin, produc-
ing the most modern fighter plane in the
world, the F-35, for the United States Air
Force (replacing the great Fort Worth-
manufactured F-I16 Falcon in its 40th year
of production, as well as for the US Navy
and Marine Corps, plus 10 other Air
Forces including the RAF).
The B-24 ended World War II as the
most heavily produced allied heavy bomb-
er at 18,000 aircraft, thanks in large
measure to Henry Ford and the harness-
ing of American industry.
Often compared to the better known
B-17 Flying Fortress (but never by
Dominic Jemella of Fort Myers who flew
the Liberator) designed by Boeing, the
B-24 was a more modern design (1938
vs 1935 birthdays), with a higher top
speed (195 mph), greater range and a
heavier bomb load. But it was more dif-
ficult to fly, with heavier control surfaces
and poor formation flying characteristics
(she wanted to be a lonely predator).
The Liberator carried a maximum
bomb load of 8,000 pounds, significantly
more than any other bomber in the
world.
The placement of fuel tanks through-
out the upper fuselage and its lightweight
controls, designed to increase range,
payload and optimize factory assembly,
also made the aircraft vulnerable to battle
damage and tendency to catch fire.
The B-24s were powered by four,
14-cylinder Pratt & Whitney R-1830
Twin Wasp radial engines of 1,000
horsepower each, yielding to a 70,547-
pound maximum takeoff weight, includ-
ing Jemella at 135 pounds wet.
There were 18,482 B-24s built, with
two still flying. It was named Liberator
by the RAF, the name stuck, and
was adopted by the Army Air Corps.
Former Speaker of the U.S. House
of Representatives Jim Wright was a
bombardier on one, and U.S. Senator,
Democrat of South Dakota and 1972
presidential candidate George McGovern,
proudly piloted Liberators at 21 years
old, was shot down in one (read a terrific
book by Stephen Ambrose, The Wild
Blue), survived and lives a healthy life to
this day.
But the most famous of all to fly and
be shot down in the Liberator was our
own Dominic Jemella, later to gain even
more fame (really infamy) by being associ-


Dominic Jemella looks at a model of the
B-24 Liberator given to him by Richard
Cook of Sanibel at a reunion at the
Farmers Market, Fort Myers, just prior to
Veterans Day. Jemella, of Fort Myers,
served in the 456th Bomb Group in World
War II
ated with a group of reprobates in Fort
Myers, aptly named after something they
all do only too well and all too frequently,
The Old Phartes.
We dedicate this day, this beautiful
scale-model B-24, The Dragon and his
Tail, in honor of Veterans Day 2010, to
Dominic, and to all the rest who flew her,
parachuted from her, and went down
with her.#

Lions Offer
Free Diabetes
Screening
he complimentary diabetes screen-
ing offered by Sanibel-Captiva
Lions Club will be performed from
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Friday,
November 19 at the Sanibel Recreation
Center. This test uses a tiny drop of


blood extracted with an almost painless
prick of the finger. It is then read by a
blood glucose meter in 10 seconds.
The Lion screeners have been trained
and certified by a doctor and use all
appropriate methods to insure antiseptic
conditions and privacy during the screen-
ing. The test is appropriate for children
and adults. Screenings are performed on
a first come, first served basis.
Finding and treating diabetic eye dis-
ease early, before it causes vision loss, is
the best way to control diabetic eye dis-
ease. Diabetic eye disease is a group of
problems that people with diabetes may
face. All can cause severe vision loss or
even blindness.
The Sanibel Recreation Center is at
3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road.4

Thanksgiving Eve At
Captiva Chapel By
In 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 celebrat-
ing 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.# c

Lovegrove Gives Painting To Mayor
rtist Leoma Lovegrove presented a special work of art to Fort Myers Mayor
Randy Henderson on November 15 during the council meeting. The paint-
ing is of a bald eagle that she completed in three minutes as an entrant in the
Southwest Florida's Got Talent contest of which Mayor Henderson was a judge who
helped choose Lovegrove as one of the Lee County finalists. She went on to finish
third in the grand finale featuring the top contestants from Collier and Lee counties.
Lovegrove had met the mayor prior to the contest and says she felt he was such a
patriotic person, as she herself is. Because of that, she wanted him to have the paint-
ing. She was invited for coffee and a personal tour of city hall by the mayor before the
council meeting.0

Rotary
Happenings
submitted by Shirley Jewell
It pays to have friends in high places
and Rotary does all over the world
and also right here in our own back-
yard, as well. Last week the club was
honored to have as our guest speaker
Fort Myers Rotarian Jim Nathan, presi-
dent and CEO of Lee Memorial Health
System.
To summarize the essence of Jim
Nathan as a caring, articulate, intelli-
gent, focused, honest and an amazingly
community-minded business leader is just
a tip-of-the-iceberg description.
He oversees the administration and
business operations involving over 1,000
employees responsible for the medical
care and the upkeep of medical facilities
of Cape Coral Hospital with 291 beds;
Gulf Coast Medical Center, 349 beds
combined; Health Park Medical Center
and The Children's Hospital of SW
Florida, 368 beds; Lee Memorial Hospital
and the Rehabilitation Hospital com-
bined, 415 beds; Health Park Care &
Rehabilitation Center, 112 beds
He is responsible for studying the
current and future medical needs of our
community and the cost of meeting those
needs. And he has come up with some
shocking evidence that not only Lee
County but our nation is headed for the
"perfect storm" in healthcare if our gov-
ernment continues to ignore these mind-


blowing facts:
* Aging population, chronic illnesses
* Health cost rising faster than cost of
living
* Decline in employer-sponsored
health care
* Increase in uninsured and underin-
sured
* Provider reimbursement relatively flat
or declining... expenses rising fast
* Shortage of trained healthcare pro-
fessionals
* Increase consumer demand for
accountability
* Increase reliance on government
funding
* Serious national/global economics
* Lack of political will to pursue sys-
temic reform, at least for the last 15


years, and maybe even today
This is an across the aisle wake-up
call. Nathan mentioned an expression
that comes from cartoonist, Pogo, who
says that "we have met the enemy, the
enemy is us." This is not someone else's
problem, this is ours. Our government
needs to work on this, all political parties;
we need solutions not 20-second sound
bites. Our medical crisis did not begin
yesterday; we need to provide a socially
responsible answer.
The 1990s boom years are over. It
was a false economy and we no longer
can afford inaction. The new Health
Reform Act has flaws, but we have to
do something... the sooner the better.
This is a bipartisan issue. According to
Nathan, we have already spent $1.2 tril-
lion on healthcare mistakes over the last
10 years, where was the outrage then?
Medicare is in serious trouble today and
by 2017 will be bankrupt.
More facts from Nathan: The gov-
ernment is the largest buyer of medical
drugs and refuses to negotiate those drug
costs. The government is responsible for
50 percent of healthcare expense. The
U.S. is the fastest growing medical care
expense nation in the world; we need a
cultural transformation in order to address
this problem.
On December 1, there will be a 23.6
percent decline in Medicare Part B pay-
ments. Shortly afterwards, on January 1,
the 2011 MPFS is scheduled to go into
effect. This will result in an additional
1.3 percent reduction in rates, bring-
ing the total reduction to 24.9 percent


from November, 2010 rates. Results will
be declining physician income, physi-
cian shortage, fewer doctors. What is
Congress doing about this.
Lee Memorial Health System is doing
pretty well. If you read last weekend's
local headlines, the health system ended
its budget year in the black thanks to
largely higher-than expected patient vol-
umes and continued cost savings efforts.
Credit for this can go to Nathan and
Chief Financial Officer Mike German.
Net revenue from patients for fis-
cal 2010 was $38.7 million, operating
expenses were $20.7 million higher than
initially budgeted but they are still in the
black. Why? Careful planning and reduc-
ing costs throughout the system; watching
numbers and looking for cost savings.
Medical systems are complicated to
understand and Nathan did a great job
enlightening us about the need for future
reform. Now all we have to do is pick up
the phone and find out what our congres-
sional representative and senators are
doing about it.
Last week was the big one for
Rotarian Jim Reed. The big 8-0 birthday.
The Rotary Club Glee Club, warmed up
their pipes and sang a beautiful rendition
of Happy Birthday, Jim. And while the
pipes were still warm, Don Russell and
John Pryor sang ait again for Richard
Jewell (too bad he wasn't there to hear
it).

Lions" First Annual
Fabulous Fish Fry
A Feeding Frenzy


This young diner has apple pie on her
mind
he Sanibel Captiva Lions Club
definitely has something to roar
about. Its first annual Fish Fry on
Sanibel on Friday, November 12 drew
over 300 guests. Held at the Sanibel
Community House, the event featured
freshly caught local fish, cheese grits,

tion for adults and children under five

provided independence and freedom to
people with total blindness and all types


of vision loss, including macular degener-
ation and retinitis pigmentosa. Currently
serving more than 800 active guide dog
teams, it also provides additional training
to civilians and veterans.
"I'm so glad to report that this event
was such a success. I heard nothing but
compliments during the course of it," said
Tom Hoover, Lions Club president. "This
is just another great way to show our
continuing support and dedicated service
to our community."
Notable guests and servers were the
honorary Lioness Judie Zimomra, Lion
Mick Denham, honorary Lion Tommy
Gray and his Lion guide dog Jackson.
The Southeastern Guide Dogs were rep-
resented by their local trainers from Fort
Myers along with some puppies in train-
ing. Fresh local fish was provided by Lion
fisherman Danny Duncan.

JANINA MONKUTE MARKS
Janina Monkute Marks, nationally
and internationally exhibited art-
ist, best known for weaving large
tapestries initially of Lithuanian folk
themes and subsequently drawing from
her American life experience, died in
Hyde Park, Chicago on November 13,
2010 at the age of 87 surrounded by
her family. She went without pain and is
at peace.
A child actress in her native
Lithuania, she entered a displaced per-
sons camp in Germany at the close of
World War II. Emigrating to Chicago
in 1949 she became involved in the
Little Theatre community movement
and found her life's work as a fine artist
expressing the universal need for free-
dom of expression. Her participation
and support of the many cultural and art
institutions in Hyde Park, Chicago and
beyond are a testament to her belief to


give back to her community.
When Soviet rule ended, she
searched for ways to help her home-
land. Near ten years ago she founded
the first nonprofit museum/art gal-
lery in Lithuania in her home town of
Kedainiai. Its membership has grown to
include people from the large cities of
Lithuania, Europeans and Americans. lit
is a model for others to emulate.
Monkute Marks was married to the
jeweler Ira Marks (Whitelhall and other
jewelry firms) for near fifty years. She is
survived by four children Sigi (Elizabeth)
Nagys, Daniel (Vida) Marks, Peter
(Dorothy) Marks, Paul (Anna) Marks, 10
grandchildren and four great grandchil-
dren.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contribu-
tions can be made to the Janina Marks
Charitable Foundation, 5490 S. Shore
Dr. 4-S, Chicago, IL 60615, www.jmm-
muziejus.com. A memorial service was
held on Wednesday, November 17 at
Chicago Sinai Temple.4

Pot Luck Fishing
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
, consistentt
* weather
Vs 1 \ conditions all
week long made for
f - ] consistent fishing.
S . .i i Sure, the fish were
not huge but it was
more about non-
stop action and
nice easy fishing.
Rat redfish, sheepshead and Spanish
mackerel were some of the species that
kept the rods bent time and time again.
Grouper fishing in the bay was also pretty
good with even a few keepers over the
22-inch minimum size caught too.
Warmer days quickly brought the
water temperature back up to where it
should be this time of year after the pre-
vious week's cold front. The warming
trend after the cold snap has really turned
the fish on, letting them know winter is
just around the corner and its time to
pack on some weight.


The big minus low tides have provided
great fishing with the majority of the fish
in the bay that I have been catching com-
ing on the first few hours of the incoming
tide. Deeper mangrove channels and cuts
going into the "Ding" Darling Refuge
have all held a good mixed bag of fish.
Sheepshead have really started getting
bigger with some up to five pounds start-
ing to show up around the bay. Ten-plus
redfish days have been common with
most of the fish right around the slot of
18 inches.
There are still some scaled sardines
around and lots of pinfish out on the flats
for bait but most of the fish I'm catch-
ing are now coming on live handpicked
shrimp bounced slowly across the bot-
tom. However, live pinfish have been the
better bait to catch grouper both in the
passes and in the bay.
Fishing on the beaches really picked
up again with Spanish mackerel and lady-
fish all over. This fishing had slowed down
just before the last cold snap. The cold
really got big numbers of these migrat-
ing fish moving south again through our
area. Right along the beach from Blind
Pass to Redfish Pass has been about the


best place to get in on the mackerel bite.
Look for the birds and either throw or
slow troll with small jigs or diving plugs.
In the bigger schools of feeding mackerel
there have also been some sharks and a
few kingfish caught. Keep your eyes open
while running the beaches for schools of
bonita breaking the surface too.
With stone crab pots ]out along the
beaches for more than a month now, it's
a great time to try what I call "pot luck
fishing." Wait for a light wind day and go
try your luck with tripletail. This is some
of my favorite sight-fishing of the year
and spring and fall are the best times to
locate one of these tasty hard fighting
fish. Tripletail can be located all through
our area both bayside and gulfside but
some of the best action comes gulfside.
When hunting tripletail I like to head
out about midday or later when the sun is
up high as the fish seem to lay up closer
to the surface. It's almost as if they are
sunning. All you need is a few dozen big
shrimp and some light spinning tackle.
Head straight out offshore until you find
the clear water they prefer. Some days
this can be right off the beach while other
times you may need to run out a mile or
two. Once I spot my first laid-up fish on a
crab pot, I continue to look at that same
depth. The tripletail have been averaging
five to 10 pounds with three or four com-
ing per trip.
Regulations on tripletail are 15-inch
minimum size and two per person.
Capt. Matt Mitchell moved to Sanibel
in 1980 and has fished local waters for
more than 25 years. He now lives in St.


Bigger sheepshead are starting to show
up.

Turtles, Tortoises
And Terrapins


Diamond back terrapin


Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation has a long history of
protecting turtles and their habitats
on the islands. Monitoring sea turtle
nesting on Sanibel and Captiva began at
SCCF in 1992 continuing the work of
Charles LeBuff. Since the late 1980s,
gopher tortoise populations have been
monitored.
The foundation's Johnson Track and
Frannie's Preserve are managed for the
foraging needs of this species increasing
their populations. Habitat management
has surveyed the preserved interior wet-
lands compiling species lists of all island
freshwater turtles.
The nature center now has a tank with
live hatchlings of peninsula cooter, Florida
softshell, red-eared and yellow-bellied
sliders, Florida and striped mud turtles as


well as a snapping turtle found in a hot
tub this summer.
Now a beautiful species, the ornate
diamond back terrapin, is featured in a
new 220-gallon tank at the SCCF nature
center. This saltwater species lives in the
brackish water of the mangrove creeks
where it forages on shrimp, fiddler crabs
and anything else it can dig up.
Learn more about the turtles, tortoises
and terrapins of Sanibel and Captiva on
Tuesday, November 23 and 30 at 3 p.m.
Cost of the program is $5 with members
and children admitted free.

Turtle Tracks
The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation is sponsoring Turtle
Tracks at the Nature Center at
9 a.m. on Thursdays. This interpretive
program delves into the life cycle of the
sea turtles that nest on the beaches.
Participants start at the turtle exhibit and
marine touch tank to learn about the life
cycle of the loggerhead and then go to a
beach site to discuss their nesting habitat
and other fascinating marine life.
Cost for this program is $5 for adults
and free for children; a beach parking fee
of $2 per car is necessary at the beach site.
The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation monitors the sea turtle nests on
Sanibel and Captiva. If you have questions
about the Turtle Tracks program or the sea
turtle research program, call the founda-
tion's Nature Center at 472-2329.#

CROW Case Of The Week:
Yellow-Billed Cuckoo
by Brian Johnson
Islander Shirlene Grasgreen came to the rescue of a yellow-
billed cuckoo who had gotten himself stuck in a fence in a
R f.Sanibel shopping plaza off Periwinkle Way.
The bird managed to free himself from the fence, but the
f . experience left him with a bad right foot and a bad right wing.
Grasgreen was among the numerous people at the plaza who
S noticed that he could not fly away.
She took him to CROW on October 18, and the little creature
r fr weighed in at 54 grams. "His right foot was noticeably weaker
" than the right when we did a test grip on my finger," said Dr.
S-- Amber McNamara. "He spent the night in a carrier in ICU. The
next day he could stand,
but it was obvious he would
rather sit on his hocks. He
didn't eat anything and he
didn't try to flap his wings,
S. which looked droopy."
. - . Staff offered him crickets,
meal worms, and chow, but
these had no attraction for
the cuckoo. In the wild the
yellow-billed cuckoo eats
"'f . an incredible assortment of
insects, including caterpillars
and spiders.
On the third day staff
.. . ... .. ... . noticed that he could flap
Dr. Amber holding yellow-billed cuckoo his left wing but not his right
wing. Dr. Amber had not
palpated a fracture, but she
said it was very possible that he fractured his coracoid bone, which is located deep
inside the body under the collar bone. He almost certainly had some minor soft tissue
trauma to the shoulder.
During the first week the bird's weight sank like a stone. Even with tube-feeding it
dropped from 54 grams to a worrying 37 grams. On Day 7 staff moved him to an
outdoor wooden cage to be able to offer a more varied diet and hopefully decrease his

stress.
Finally, on Day 12, as the weight situation became desperate, staff was relieved to
see him chow down a helping of wax worms. He had been offered his choice of super
worms, but it turned out that wax worms were his thing. "I don't know what it was,
but something got triggered - he began eating non-stop," said Dr. Amber.
From that point on he cast off his concerns and ate one big meal after another.
On Day 21 CROW noted his flights were still awkward and asymmetrical but he
was improving and eating. A move to an aviary allowed increased flight practice.
"Now at the four-week mark, he's coming along well," said Dr. Amber. "Shoulder
injuries are obviously so hard on a bird because of the importance of flight, but I think
he will be release-ready soon."

Plant Smart
Rouge Plant
by Gerri Reaves
If you're wondering A
what to plant in a
shady section of
the landscape, consid-
er low-maintenance
rouge plant (Rivina
humilis).
This native shrub's
wild habitat is ham-
mocks, where it
reaches up to six feet
tall. Throughout the
year, spikes of tiny
pinkish white flowers
appear on the branch
tips, followed by
bright shiny berries.
The flowers attract
butterflies and the
fruit is a food source
for many species of
birds.
Those berries
are the plant's most
distinctive feature,
and this time of year
they seem to herald
the start of the holi-
day season in South
Florida.
Rouge plant produces a
bright berries and
pinkish white flowers
throughout the year


Bright red berries attract a variety of birds
This member of the pokeweed family
works best in an informal garden where
it can assume a natural shape. The low-
growing shrub is often used in habitat res-
toration because of its easy propagation
and wildlife friendliness.
The small pointed leaves are dark
green and oval or lance-shaped with wavy
edges - another distinctive feature.
Rouge plant will adapt to a shady or
sunny spot. It prefers a moist site but will
tolerate periods of drought. It is suitable
for coastal sites only if protected from salt
water and spray.
The common name derives from the
staining juice in the tiny berries, which


photos by Gerri Reaves
can be used in the making of dye or
rouge.
The plant has medicinal properties
too. Tea made from the leaves is a diar-
rhea treatment.
Propagate rouge plant with seeds or
cuttings. Watch for seedlings, which often
sprout near the parent plant.

tolerant, hurricane- and pest-resistant

The Children's Education Center
of the Islands (CECI) hosted
its annual Beach Ball event on
November 7, raising record funds
for its scholarship program. Nearly
180 guests dined, danced, and bid
on auction items during the fun-filled
party at Traders, with live music
performed by New Vinyl.
According to Gaither DeLuca, the
Beach Ball chairperson, this year's
event invitation was extended to the
entire community. "The school is
such an important part of our island
history. It was opened in 1974 and
has served generations of island fami-
lies. So we made an effort to include
everyone in the festivities," said
DeLuca.

More than 80 baskets were presented for the silent auction, including a four-person
pass to Disney World along with accommodations at the Buena Vista Palace Orlando;
a Gibson electric guitar donated by The Guitar Studio in Fort Myers; various spa, hotel,
and golf packages; and many gift certificates donated by local restaurants and busi-
nesses. Brian Houston of Cape Coral was the lucky raffle ticket winner. He won a one-
week rental home on Captiva, a $5,200 value, donated by RLR Investments, LLC.
Dick Muench served as the auctioneer. The live auction items were pieces of furni-

Kiwanis Guest Speakers
submitted by Eric Pfeiffer
Kg iwanis had two excellent guest
speakers recently. Jason Huff
with Huff Insurance and Financial
Services provided an excellent update of
the ever changing insurance business in
Southwest Florida. He reminded us that
the FEMA base flood elevation changed
in August 2008 which potentially made
some conforming elevated homes now
non-conforming depending on the
home's living level elevation.
The more drastic change recently was
with windstorm insurance. For properties
with a replacement cost of $750,000 or
greater, each window and door must have Bob Walsh
wind protection in the form of impact
glass or hurricane shutters. There are a
few alternatives like 3M film, but you need
to check with your insurance agent to
see if they are still covered. Regardless of
replacement cost, owners can get open-
ing protection credits to decrease their
premiums. Just when you think your house
is fully protected and you are happy with
your insurance bills, your premiums can still
go up due to random re-inspections, rate
increases, or standard adjustments every
five years.
This week we heard from Bob Walsh
of R.S. Walsh Landscaping. As a former
Key Clubber in high school, Walsh was
excited to share a few tips with us as well Jason Huff
as a beautiful slide show of several of his
projects. Due to a Sanibel City ordinance, a new home construction or remodel land-
scaping package must include 75 percent native vegetation. The reason is to avoid
disturbing the wildlife currently living in your backyard. Secondly, your lot cannot have
more than 20 percent coverage with sod. This is in addition to the building coverage
and developed area of 35 and 40 percentage maximum. So if you want a full size bas-
ketball court and putting green, you might want to disguise it as a butterfly garden.
Walsh said some of his favorite projects include landscaping the entrance to South
Seas Island Resort as well as working on The Dunes Golf & Country Club.
John Schubert, Mike Kelly, Peter Perkins, Pete Bender, Lee Derleth, Billy Kirkland,
Joe Mondelli, Mike Layton, Andy (Michael Vick fan) Schroder, George Campean,
Roger Bunnell, Doug Dietrich, and Barry (Dick Clark) Roth all got another year older.
After 13 renditions of Happy Birthday including a reggae version, it has been deter-
mined that we still can't sing without Tom Uhler.
Kiwanians would like everyone to remember the following upcoming events that we
help with: CROW Taste of the Islands on November 21, and the Luminary Trail on
December 3.
And finally, we would like to extend our condolences to the Vermes family.
Longtime Kiwanian and fellow poker player with several members, Frank Vermes
passed away last week. We will miss you.0

26 ISLAND SUN - NOVEMBER 19, 2010

Not Just A Boat, But a SERAT


These boats are part of SERAT, the Sanibel Emergency Response Assistant Team
The Sanibel Emergency Response Assistant Team is a sanctioned arm of the
Sanibel Captiva Sail and Power Squadron (SCSPS), and its mission is to pro-
vide volunteer assistance to the local fire and rescue departments, police and
sheriff departments, as well as the U.S. Coast Guard in water-related emergencies.
SERAT was formed about five years ago from a vision of Power Squadron member
Jim Strothers and Sanibel Fire and Rescue department training officer Tim Barrett.
Strothers and Barrett knew there are times when an emergency calls for more than
one boat. SCSPS had boats and experienced boaters.
This was a 2+2=5 synergy situation. The volunteers received training from the
fire department, and members of the fire department learned advanced boat handling
skills. The teamwork of these two groups has led to better protection of all boaters.
SERAT has developed into a functional volunteer unit that is recognized by local emer-
gency agencies.
The team is a member of the Lee County Marine Emergency Response Team
and a partner with the city of Sanibel Emergency Management Team. Several recent
examples of their typical activity include:
* Searching for missing divers six miles off Sanibel
* Assisting at the helicopter crash off North Captiva
* Providing perimeter security for plane crash near Blind Pass
* Searching for missing swimmer off Fort Myers Beach
* Assisting in perimeter control on open water festival
SERAT has many levels of membership. The auxiliary members assist the team
with communications and land-based operation. With further education, someone
can become a crew member on the boats and eventually can become a boat captain.
Members do not need a boat to participate, and they do not receive any financial renu-
meration.

Meet Your
Dancing With
The Islands" Star


7 VOTE for MATT ,
SDa 10 the StarA 1

The Sanibel
Community Hous
--~mlmMl


submitted by The Community House
Without doubt, Matt Asen is
one of Sanibel-Captiva's most
flamboyant and fun personali-
ties. In fact, a strong argument can be
made that a vacation to the islands isn't
complete without a Matt Asen sighting.
Not sure where to look? Any local can
tell you that Asen can often be spotted
cruising in one of his cow spotted and
horned Cadillacs at one of his three
island restaurants, The Timbers, The
Sanibel Grill and Matzaluna, or even
pedaling his bike down Periwinkle Way.
When it comes to Asen, people always
wonder what's next.
Asen can be spotted these days at
the Fred Astaire Studio in Fort Myers,
where he has been hard at work train-
ing with his professional dance instruc-
tors to compete with five other island-
ers in Dancing with The Islands' Stars
scheduled for January 21 and 22 at The
Community House.
Being a contestant seems to be a
natural fit for this not-so-shy 33-year
Sanibel character.
Born in New York City's East Village,
Asen first appeared on Broadway at the
age of 12 when he saw Zero Mostel in
Fiddler on The Roof. At the age of 16,
he appeared on stage at Carnegie Hall
(his Stuyvesant High School graduation).
He continued to make nightly appear-
ances on Broadway throughout his col-
lege summers, driving a Checker Cab,
and spent a solid six months there after
graduation. He has been seen recently
at Lincoln Center in New York and at
The Saratoga Performing Art Center
where he has been backstage and at
performances featuring his many friends
in the New York City Ballet.
Asen graduated from SUNY Cortland
with a BA in secondary social studies
but decided that he enjoyed his job as
a waiter, which he started during his
senior year, better than becoming a
teacher.


While working at Cortland's Rusty
Nail Steakhouse for owners Kipp and
Jim Foster, he learned to bartend and
cook, which gave him the background
to come to Sanibel in 1978 to open
the Fosters' first Florida restaurant, The
Timbers. The rest, as Asen is known to
say, is "fishtory." He worked his way
into partnership and now along with the
Fosters and the Schilling brothers, owns
10 successful Florida restaurants.
Asen has always been active in
the Sanibel community, donating his
time or food to events and benefits.
He was named Sanibel Captiva Rotary
Club Man of the Year in 1988. He is
well known to Hoosiers as The Pacer
Guy and is frequently seen live and on
television holding up one of his timely
signs, either at Pacer or Colt games. He
received the Sagamore of the Wabash
award from then Governor Evan Bayh
which, along with photos of both
Presidents George Bush and George
W. Bush, appears on the wall at The
Sanibel Grill (among nearly 300 others).
In 1996 Asen received the
Distinguished Alumnus Award from
SUNY Cortland, and in addition to
going back to speak to students about
how college had helped him achieve
success, he has set up a Guardian
Angelfish scholarship fund to benefit
students in need who attend the college.
Asen now lives just over the cause-
way on Connie Mack Island with Mary
Jo Bogdon and their two dogs Chowdah
and Mr. Moose. When asked to partici-
pate in the DWTIS, he replied, "Well I
am sort of shy, but if it's to raise money
for The Community House, I guess I
could try."
Watch Asen when he performs a
dance that will bring him full circle to his
Broadway roots in New York.
As he says, "You can't make this fish
up!"
Vote for any of the contestants by
locating one of the Dancing with the
Islands' Stars voting boxes around town.
Asen's boxes can be found at The
Timbers, Sanibel Grill, and Matzaluna.
Funds raised will support the renova-
tion of The Community House.
Tickets go on sale December 1 at
The Community House .

Island Kids Perform At The Alliance

Ramsey, Annabel Crater, Riley Mann

group of Sanibel children performed this past weekend, along with about 40
others, in the musical The Jungle Book at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort
Myers. The show was put on by Creative Theater Workshop (CTW), which
is a nonprofit children's theater company in Fort Myers. Auditions were held in
August, and the children rehearsed every Saturday for over two months. They per-
formed six shows, most of which were sold out. When asked about his experience,
Henry Crater (the alligator) said, "It was really fun, especially because my friend
Jake was in it!" Look for future performances by CTW each spring and fall.#

Musical Comedy
Tour Coming
To BIG ARTS
by Di Saggau
W e can all
use laugh-
. ter in our
Slaves and there's a
great opportunity
. for you to do just
that on Saturday,
S November 27.
. . -w � The Musical
Comedians will be
entertaining at BIG
ARTS and it's an act that has been get-
ting standing ovations around the coun-
try. I recently spoke with one of the guys,
Ron Feingold, who said the three musical
comedians have been together for about
three and a half years. All three have
been comedians for over 20 years.
The group consists of Feingold,
Michael Mack and a guy called Kier.
Feingold said it was perfect timing for all
three of them to put their show together.
Each performer has their individual set
of about 20 minutes, and then they all
get together for a big rock 'n' roll per-
formance at the end that they call The
Guilty Pleasures Medley. It's a show
unlike any other and is a huge hit with
the audience.
Feingold's set consists of a cappella
music and backup vocals from a machine


ISLAND SUN- NOVEMBER 19, 2010 31
called the "looper." He said, "It's a little
box that has all my vocals on it."
Keir plays the electric guitar and
does rock impressions of Sting, Bruce
Springstein, U2, John Lennon, Willie
Nelson, Waylon Jennings and more.
Mack does funny impressions with his
guitar using puppets. "When the music
comes on all you see is these little puppet
heads that he created and each one has
their own independent lighting system.
You see these little heads jumping around
on stage to music by everyone from
Whitney Houston to Yoko Ono. It's hard
to describe but he always gets a stand-
ing ovation and he also has a wonderful
surprise ending that blows the audience
away," Feingold said.
I asked what kind of feedback they
get from the audience after they have
seen the show. Feingold said, "We have
such a great chemistry on stage together,
that's what people tell us. A lot of people
are wondering why we haven't had our
own show in Las Vegas yet, because it's
not just a comedy show, it's a theatrical
performance of non-stop comedy and
music." Sure sounds good to me.
If you'd like to check them out you
can access www.musicalcomedians.com
for a sneak peek. The Musical Comedians
plays one night only, Saturday, November
27, 7:30 p.m., in Schein Hall at BIG
ARTS, 900 Dunlop Road on Sanibel.
Tickets are $36, $15 for student or child.

34 ISLAND SUN- NOVEMBER 19, 2010

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF NOVEMBER 22, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) ) This
year, instead of jumping into the whole holi-
day prep scene, move in a little at a time.
You'll appreciate the sense of control you're
more likely to enjoy.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The sep-
aration between the Bovine's head and heart
is never as far apart as it seems. Both senses
work best when they come out of logic and
honesty.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The best
way to keep those pre-holiday pressures
under control is to just say no to taking on
new tasks while you're still trying to work
with a heap of others.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) News
means a change might be on its way, but
what does it hold? Don't just ask questions;
make sure you get answers you can trust.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Old friends
and new have one thing in common: Both
your longtime and newly minted pals have
much wisdom to impart.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
With time running out, this is a good time
for you to show 'em all what those Virgo
super-organizational skills can do.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Librans and holidays are made for each
other, especially if children and animals are
going to be part of your joyous season.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November
21) Time is getting too short to allow a spat
to taint the holiday season. Restart your rela-
tionship and reschedule holiday fun times.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Seeking advice is laudable.


You might learn far more than you thought
you could. Stay with it.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Continuing to assess changes works
toward your getting your new project up and
ready. Trusted colleagues remain ready to
help.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February
18) That new situation needs a lot of atten-
tion, but it's worth it. This is a very good
time for you to involve the arts in what you
do.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) It
might be a good idea to slow your hectic
holiday pace so that you don't rush past what
-- or who -- you're hoping to rush toward.
BORN THIS WEEK: Others pick
up on your confidence in yourself, which
inspires others to believe in you and your
special gifts.


* On Nov. 27, 1703, an unusual storm
system finally dissipates over England after
wreaking havoc on the country for nearly
two weeks. Featuring hurricane strength
winds, the storm killed somewhere between
10,000 and 30,000 people and sank hundreds
of Royal Navy ships.
* On Nov. 22, 1783, John Hanson, the
first president of the Continental Congress
under the Articles of Confederation, dies
in his home state of Maryland. Hanson is
sometimes called the first president of the
United States, but this is a misnomer, since
the presidency did not exist until 1789.
* On Nov. 28, 1925, the Grand Ole Opry,
one of the longest-lived and most popular
showcases for Country Western music,
begins broadcasting live from Nashville,


Tennessee. The showcase was originally
named the Bam Dance, after a Chicago radio
program called the National Barn Dance.
* On Nov 26, 1931, the first cloverleaf
interchange to be built in the United States,
at the junction of US 1/9 and NJ Route 35 in
Woodbridge, N.J., is featured on the cover
of the Engineering News-Record. A piece
on the under-construction Hoover Dam was
relegated to the journal's back pages.
* On Nov 24, 1944, 111 U.S. B-29
Superfortress bombers raid Tokyo for the
first time since 1942. Their target: the
Nakajima aircraft engine works. Despite the
barrage of bombs that were dropped, fewer
than 50 hit the main target, doing little dam-
age.* On Nov 23, 1966, Elvis Presley's 22nd
film, a rock 'n' roll musical called "Spinout"
in which Elvis played a singing race car
driver, opens in theaters across the country.
"Spinout" was filmed on location at Dodger
Stadium in Los Angeles and the Ascot Motor
Car Racing Ground, a well-known dirt
track nearby.* On Nov 25, 1980, Sugar Ray
Leonard regains boxing's welterweight title
when his opponent, reigning champ Roberto
Duran, waves his arms and walks away from
the fight in the eighth round, telling the ref-
eree "No mas, no mas" ("No more"). Duran
maintained that he had stomach cramps and
could barely stand up.


* It was Kurt Vonnegut, one of the most
influential American writers of the 20th cen-
tury, who made the following sage observa-
tion: "Laughter and tears are both responses
to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer
to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do
afterward."


* Snakes are sometimes born with two
heads, but they don't survive long. It seems
the heads fight each other for food.
* Pregnant women might be particularly
interested in the following: The animal
that is pregnant the longest is the African
elephant, with an average gestation period
of 660 days (though some pregnancies can
last up to 100 days longer). The record for
shortest gestation period is held jointly by
three marsupials, including the American
opossum, which remain pregnant for only 12
to 13 days.
* During this season of excess, it might
be worthwhile to remember that the typical
holiday meal contains more than 3,000 calo-
ries. It also might be worthwhile to remem-
ber that the suggested daily intake of calories
for men is 2,500; for women it's 2,000.
* Americans' collective annual tab for
dry-cleaning services comes to approximate-
ly $8 billion.
* If you're an arachnophobe, you might
not want to read the following tidbit of infor-
mation: Scientists in Madagascar recently
discovered a new species of bark spider that
spins webs over rivers and other bodies of
water. What makes these webs noteworthy is
that they are the largest ever recorded, mea-
suring up to 82 feet across.
* Zachary Taylor, the 12th president of
the United States, let his horse graze on the
lawn of the White House.


"Perpetual devotion to what a man calls
his business, is only to be sustained by
perpetual neglect of many other things." --
Robert Louis Stevenson

Festival Of Trees Welcomes One
Of The World's Top-Ranked Choruses


Spirit of the Gulf Chorus
SF r the second straight year, visitors to the Festival of Trees will be entertained
by one of the world's top-ranked women's choruses. The Spirit of the Gulf
c chorus will entertain holiday revelers at Goodwill's Festival on Saturday eve-
ning, November 27 as part of the Fort Myers River District's Holiday Stroll celebra-
tion.
The Spirit of the Gulf is a 150-member a cappella chorus based in Fort Myers.
This October, they finished sixth at the Sweet Adelines International Championships in
Seattle.
November 27 will be a busy day for the Spirit of the Gulf. That morning, the
chorus will perform as the opening act for the Rockettes at the Barbara B. Mann
Performing Arts Hall before bringing their show to the Sidney & Berne Davis Art
Center for the Festival of Trees and Holiday Stroll.
At the Festival of Trees, the internationally-renowned women's chorus will sing at
7 p.m, before and after the lighting of the art center Christmas tree. The tree-lighting
ceremony is part of the Fort Myers River District's Holiday Stroll celebration.


ISLAND SUN - NOVEMBER 19, 2010 35
In just three years, the Festival of Trees has become one of Southwest Florida's pre-
miere holiday events. Last year, more than 4,000 people visited the annual showcase,
which is hosted by the Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation.
More musical entertainment is scheduled for the festival on Friday, December 3.
The Southwest Florida Handbell Ensemble will perform during the Fort Myers Art
Walk.
The Festival of Trees starts on Friday, November 26 and continues through Friday,
December 3 at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center (2301 First Street, Fort Myers).
The free, family-friendly event features more than two dozen lavishly-decorated holiday
trees, which are decorated by area businesses, decorators, artists, and other individu-
als. This year's decorators include Robb & Stucky, Fort Myers Floral Design, and Miss
Lucy's House of Holidays.
The festival culminates in the glamorous black-tie Tux and Trees gala on Saturday,
December 4. At that time, the trees will be auctioned off in an exciting live auction.
Tickets to the gala are $100 per person, and proceeds benefit the Southwest Florida
Goodwill Foundation.

Batik Artist To Speak At Art League


White Pelicans by Pat Smart


he Sanibel Captiva Art League's first general meeting of the year will be held
on November 18 at 1:30 p.m. at The Community House, 2173 Periwinkle
Way.
The speaker will be batik artist Pat Smart, a painter and printmaker who has been
making prizewinning batik art for the past several years. Batik is a 2,000-year-old
Indonesian method of creating unique and colorful images on cotton or rayon fabric by
the repetitive immersion in dye baths. Wax is used as a resist to leave areas untouched
in the dye process. Smart's striking batik work has won numerous prizes, including
shows in New York and here at Sanibel-Captiva Art League shows.
Smart is a former elementary school teacher who retired and took up art several
years ago. She now teaches workshops in New York where she lives during the sum-
mer. She is also the vice president of the Sanibel-Captiva Art League.
This is the league's 46th year. It continues to expand its activities and enthusiasm.
The public is invited to attend the meeting. Refreshments will be served and
announcements of the league activities for the new season will be made.4

Young At Heart
International
Film Festival
BIG ARTS Film Society will present
the Young at Heart International
Film Festival, a weekend of posi-
tive, upbeat films about active people
in their 70s, 80s and 90s. Films will
include international, independent and
documentary productions which cel-
ebrate the unique joys, challenges and
opportunities of our later years.
Admission is $10 per film or all films
for $21.
The series begins at 7 p.m. Saturday,
November 20 with a short film from the
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
"new wave" filmmaker Agnes Varda cre-
ated this autobiographical documentary
using photos, film clips, movies, and
contemporary interviews. With her impish
charm, inventiveness and natural empa-
thy, Varda has created a film that plays
like a fond scrapbook of a life well lived.
The Beaches of Agn&s won the 2009
Cesar Award for best documentary film.
My Father's Hopes will be screened
Saturday, November 21, starting at 7


p.m. From the Legacy Film Series, this
is a brief documentary about an artist
who was diverted into the business world
and later created a wonderful old age for
himself.
An inspiring account of the life and
career of American dance pioneer Anna
Halprin, Breath Made Visable takes its
title from the choreographer's defini-
tion of dance as an expression of the
basic forces within all humans. Halprin
has helped redefine modern art with her
belief in dance's power to teach, heal,


4~1


F. 4 / . ',


and transform at all ages of life. This
feature-length film is a study of movement
woven through a kinetic and innovative
individual's life.
Mid-August Lunch will be screened
Monday, November 22, at 7 p.m. The
charismatic Gianni Di Gregorio stars in
his directorial debut. This is an utterly
charming tale of good food, feisty ladies
and unlikely friendships. Broke and
armed with only a glass of wine and a
wry sense of humor, middle-aged Gianni
resides with his 93-year-old mother in
their ancient apartment. The condo debts
are mounting, but if Gianni looks after


the building manager's mother during
a summer holiday, all will be forgiven.
Then the manager also shows up with an
auntie, and then a doctor friend appears
with his mother in tow... Can Gianni
keep four such lively mamas well fed and
happy in these cramped quarters? Winner
of numerous prizes at international fes-
tivals, including Best First Film at Venice
and the Satyajit Ray Award at London,
Mid-August Lunch is both a warmly
vibrant family drama and a delicately bal-
anced comedy of manners.
Films are shown with surround
sound in high definition using a high-
quality screen and projector in Schein
Performance Hall. A sound-enhancement
system for the hearing impaired is avail-
able.

Deborah Sharp
Nationally known author Deborah
Sharp has attended several
elegant wedding ceremonies on
Sanibel Island. Not a single detail from
those tasteful affairs made it into Mama
Gets Hitched, the latest installment
in her funny, Florida-set Mace Bauer
Mystery series.
"When the fictional Mama ties the
knot for the fifth time, her ceremony is
completely over the top. We're talking
tacky, tacky, tacky," said Sharp, whose


SKIDS EAT FREE
BEST KIDS MENU,


readers often show up in hideous formal
wear for her signing.
Sharp, 56, a former reporter for The
News-Press and USA Today, will be at
Sanibel Island Bookshop, 11 a.m. to 1
p.m., on Friday, November 26 to talk
about Mama Gets Hitched (Midnight
Ink, 2010, $14.95).
Readers can expect to see Sharp in
the "Mama veil," made famous when
she appeared on NBC's Today Show in
August to talk about the third book set
in her native state.
Hitched is a follow-up to last year's
Mama Rides Shotgun. That book was
set on Florida's annual Cracker Trail
Ride, a cross-state horseback trek that
follows the route of old cattle drives.


Sharp completed the ride as research.
Mastering wedding minutiae and watch-
ing Bridezillas was more painful than
spending six days in the saddle, she
said.
Mama Gets Hitched garnered critical
praise for Sharp, a Southern-fried ver-
sion of mystery writer Janet Evanovich.
Publishers Weekly wrote, "Sibling
rivalry, steamy romance, a surprising
killer, and plenty of catfish and hush
puppies make this Southern cozy a win-
ner.
The Today Show also chose the
book as a Hot Summer Read.
Hitched continues the misadventures
of Mama, who displays a knack for
mischief along with serial matrimony.
This time, she's planning the wedding
of the century, complete with a Gone
With the Wind theme, Scarlett O'Hara
gowns for her long-suffering daughters,
and her pet Pomeranian as ring-bearer.
What's a Bridezilla to do, though, when
her caterer is found dead at the VFW,
even before the first pig-in-a-blanket is
passed?

Not For Monday Night Film:
The White Ribbon


Scene from The White Ribbon


BIG ARTS Film Society presents the last film in the Not for Monday Night
Series, The White Ribbon, on Wednesday, November 24. There will be an
introduction and discussion led by long-time film buff Hyde Tucker. The film
begins at 1 p.m. Admission is $5.
Winner of 25 awards and two 2009 Oscar nominations, The White Ribbon is set
in rural Germany in the years just before World War I, where a series of strange occur-
rences takes place over several months. These events are sinister and often involve
the children of the village - not merely as victims, but also as perpetrators. The film is
rated R and has subtitles.
Enhanced by surround sound, films will be shown in the comfort of Schein
Performance Hall, with a high-definition projection system and large screen to pro-
vide a superb cinematic presentation. Listening devices are available for the hearing
impaired.

Shell Museum Celebrates
15th Anniversary; Free Admission
For Visitors This Saturday


On Saturday, November 20, The
Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum
will offer free admission in honor
of the museum's 15th anniversary.
The festivities will be sponsored by
CenturyLink, a leading provider of high-
quality phone, Internet broadband, enter-
tainment and voice services.
At 2 p.m. Sanibel author Charlie
Sobczak will help participants experience
the first 15 years of the shell museum's
history. At 3 p.m. nationally renowned
storyteller Kate Adams will take children
"Under the Sea." Dr. MG Harasewych of
The Smithsonian Institution will present
a program titled Shells And The Stories
They Tell Us at 4 p.m. Dr. Harasewych
is an expert on deep sea snails. He is a
veteran diver and has used research sub-
mersibles to study and sample deep-sea
organisms.
Dedicated to providing shell and mol-
lusk education and furthering awareness of
the natural environment, the shell museum
opened in 1995 with the help of capital
campaign chairperson Raymond Burr,
and seed money donated by Charlene
McMurphy of Sanibel. The museum is


Edible mollusk exhibit
named in memory of Frank P. Bailey and Annie Mead Matthews Bailey, parents of the
three Bailey brothers, who donated the eight acres of land for the museum site.
The museum is one of less than 800 of the country's 17,500 museums accredited
by the American Association of Museums. It is rated a Gem attraction by AAA, listed
in 1,000 Places To See Before You Die and was awarded Best of the Islands in the
museum category.
Over 30 exhibits are devoted to shells in art and history, shell habitats, rare speci-
mens, fossil shells, and common Southwest Florida shells. A children's learning lab fea-
tures a hands-on play area and a live tank with indigenous mollusks. Two fascinating

Around The Islands With Anne
A New Look But The Same Personal
Service At Aqua Beachwear
by Anne Mitchell
The former Beach House Swimwear in Periwinkle Place, Sanibel, reopened last
month with a new name - Aqua Beachwear - a bigger space and a cool
new look following major renovations.
Mary Bauer, co-owner, said the popular swimsuit store was due for an image make-
over. Also, the firm was unable to trademark its old name but has been able to do so
with the new name.
The company is one of the two original tenants
when Periwinkle Place opened 36 years ago who are
still there. The other is The Cheese Nook. Since then
the company has added 13 more beachwear stores
around Florida and beyond.
It's all about ensuring the right fit at Aqua
Beachwear, just as it has always been. Bauer says the
average female swimsuit shopper tries on 24 suits.
No wonder most women hate shopping for swimsuits.
Bauer and her staff try to make it easier and, with a
trained eye, they can quickly come up with appropri-
ate styles and colors to flatter and shape. The store
carries sizes from junior to women's 24.
Soni Mansukhani of Sanibel Resort Wear models sun-
glasses with beads that hook over the ears to double as
earrings; interchangeable charms are available

The big story this season is the cover-up - tunics and dresses - which do double
duty off the beach as well. That's a trend we're seeing more of, perhaps due to the
economy. We feel better about splurging on ourselves if we can see extra value and
purpose. Add leggings to the tunics and you're ready to hit the stores or go sightsee-
ing; put on your strappy sandals with a beach dress and you can feel comfortable for a
casual dinner.
Bauer gave us a rundown of 2011 season trends in beachwear. They include:

Sanibel Shopping Centers Unite
FISH (Friends In Service Here) of Sanibel has been struggling over the past six
months to keep its food pantry stocked as a result of increased demand from
neighbors in need. The upcoming holiday season is a particularly hard time for
many island families and in true Sanibel community spirit, five island shopping cen-
ters have gotten together with their merchants and set up a FISH food drive.
Periwinkle Place and The Royal Shell Companies, which include Tahitian Gardens,
The Village Shops, Olde Sanibel Shoppes and Town Center, began the drive on
November 1.
Bring your non-perishable food items when you shop at any of these centers and
place them in the designated baskets and boxes.
FISH relies on community support to fund all programs and accepts unopened,
unexpired food items which are delivered directly to island families in need. The Walk-
in-Center is located at 1630 Periwinkle Way, Unit B (next to Pfeifer Realty Group) and
is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. F.I.S.H. can be contacted at
472 4775.,

oin the American Business Women's Association (ABWA) of Sanibel-Captiva
for the 5th annual Texas Hold 'Em Tournament Friday, January 28 at The

appreciated.4


Sanibel Supports
Overseas Warriors
And Their Families
Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas
and the New Year 2011 are rap-
idly approaching here on Sanibel,
and we Sanibelians will be enjoying
family, friends, fun and great food, free
from fear, war, and pain.
However, as we enjoy ourselves in
Freedom and all it encompasses; the right
to live in safety, go to whatever religious
ceremonies we wish to, or not go if
that is our choice, our deployed troops
in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other distant
areas, most between 18 and 23 years
old, will be cold, hungry for the very fam-
ily, friends, food, and fun that they long
for, but cannot enjoy because they must
defend us, and be away from home.
The guys at "Outpost Censored" can
understand why they may have to defend
themselves against a Fanatical Enemy,
why on the holy days they may have
to kill to stay alive, why they probably
won't get turkey with all the trimmings
like at home, why the mail from home,
the emails or the SKYPE video calls with
their loved ones won't get through, but
even though they'll soldier on through,
they'd sure like to be remembered by the
folks in the land of the BIG BX. (I've been
in that boat, believe me it is true)
The Lee Memorial Hospital System
Military Support (LMHS - Mil Sup) unit
has people to pack the express mail
boxes with all the goodies you and people
all across Lee County will and have
donated, and more. LMHS-Mil Sup has
the people to get the packages to local
troops. But, it is up to show our service-
men and women that they ARE remem-
bered at Thanksgiving and the holidays,


and it is up to us, we Sanibelians, to
provide the items and $$$ to pay for the
items and mailing costs.
A goodly number of people have dug
deep into their pockets and helped out

FBI Moves In On Latin American

Baseball Recruiting; Former White

Sox Executive, Two Scouts Arrested
by Ed Frank
T he shoe has started to drop on the free-wheeling recruit-
ment of Latin American baseball prospects with the
arrest last week of a former high-ranking Chicago White
Sox executive and two former scouts, accused of skimming
about $400,000 from the signing bonuses of youngsters in the
Dominican Republic.
In August, we reported on the flawed system in the DR where
prospects, some as young as 12, are corralled by unlicensed
agents known as
"buscones" who bring
them to antiquated
facilities where they * | 1 I


are housed and fed.
If a Major League scout is interested in
signing an athlete - a prospect must be
at least 16 under Major League rules - he
must deal with a "buscone" who will grab
a large share of the signing bonus. The
talent-rich Dominican Republic produces
about one-sixth of all Major League players.
Major League baseball has been investi-
gating this system in order to bring change
and improvement to what has grown into a
scandal-scarred operation.
Last week, David Wilder, who was
in charge of White Sox scouts in Latin
America, and former scouts Jorge
Oquendo Rivera and Victor Mateo were
charged by federal authorities with fraudu-
lently inflating the signing bonuses of Latin
American prospects and then having the
players kick back the extra money over a
three-year period.
"They enriched themselves by taking
advantage of vulnerable ballplayers that
were anxious to pursue their dreams of
stardom," said Robert Grant, head of the
Chicago office of the FBI. Nearly half of
the citizens of the DR live in poverty.
The kickbacks were kept hidden from
White Sox officials until two years ago
when the practice was brought to the atten-
tion of the White Sox by several minor
league players. Wilder, Rivera and Mateo
were fired immediately and the matter was
brought to the attention of Major league
Baseball which launched an investigation.
The probe widened when Wilder was
stopped leaving the DR with $30,000 to
$40,000 in cash. He claimed, according to
informed sources, that the money was from
gambling winnings in casinos.
The FBI investigation didn't stop with
the White Sox. Reportedly other Major
League teams have fired about a dozen
employees including scouts ousted by
the Yankees and Red Sox. Last year,
Jim Bowden, general manager of the
Washington Nationals, resigned when it
was learned the Nationals were duped for
more than $1 million signing what they
believed to be a prized teenage shortstop
who later was found to be much older.
So stay tuned. We haven't heard the
last of this mess. It's going to take major
changes in the recruitment, signing, train-
ing and education of Latin American pros-
pects to bring honesty and legitimacy to a
program gone adrift.
Post-Season Honors Roll in for the
Twins' Joe Mauer
Joe Mauer, the Minnesota Twins All-Star
catcher, has won his fourth Silver Slugger
Award and his third Gold Glove Award -
both top post-season honors.
The Silver Slugger Award was deter-
mined by a vote of Major League baseball

tion. The 27-year-old Maurer batted .327 in the 2010 season with 43 doubles, one
triple, nine home runs, 75 RBIs and an on-base percentage of .402.
The Gold Glove Award is the prestigious honor given to the best defensive players

Earlier this year, Mauer signed an eight-year $184 million contract extension with

Sanibel 8-Ball Pool League
League Standings Tighten
L league standings tightened as the fourth place Bunt's Ball Busters posted a 9-7
win over second place Sanibel Cafe and third place One Ball Wonders did the
same to front running Fresh Legion Crew. This sets up two big matches next
Monday at American Legion Post 123 with the top two teams competing as well as
the two bottom dwellers. Come watch the bloodshed. No charge for admission.
The only perfect 4-0 score of the night came from Butch Bouchard from the One
Ball Wonders. The highlight of his four games was the first safety Butch called and
executed since he began playing the game at the age of 10. Although he was elated
to win his four games he emphasized later that "playing safe ain't the way young guys
like me should play the game."
With his lovely wife Sally looking on and providing morale support, Rich Ennis from
Bunt's Ball Busters finally shook off his accumulated summertime rust and won both
of his two games against Sanibel Cafe Captain Richard McCurry. Based on the Ennis
performance Ball Buster Captain Bob Buntrock guaranteed that Ennis could play four
games on the next league night, Monday, November 22. Winless (0-10) Kip Johnson
will sit out.0

Sanibel Youth Soccer
Sanibel Soccer
Championship
Games
The stage is set for this
Saturday's Sanibel Youth Soccer
Championship games. The action
starts early as the third-place games in
both U10 and U13 kick off at 8:30. In
the U10 division South Africa takes on
Holland. On the U13 field England will
be out for revenge against a renewed
Italy squad that had a large part in keep-
ing England out of the finals.
In the U10 Championship Game,
regular season champ France squares off
against Spain. After starting off the sea-
son with two losses, Spain has rebounded
nicely and worked hard to get into the
finals. Spain coach John Costa, who
led Portugal to glory last year, promised
a few surprises as he looks to disrupt
the vaunted French scoring machine
of Jorgen Howell, Alexander Goss and
Giovanni Sanchez.
In the U13 Division, Cameroon looks
to return to their glory days of 1990
when they qualified for the World Cup
quarter finals. Coaches Andy Johnson
and Bryan Hayes have surveyed the field
and feel that their teams' conditioning
and electricity will be enough to bring
the championship to the African conti-
nent for the first time. Standing in their
way however is five-time World Cup


Champion Brazil. Cameroon has been
atop the U 13 standings all season but
the Brazilians appear to be hitting their
peak after surviving a tough challenge
from England for the number two spot. It
promises to be an exciting game.
Both championship games kick off
at 9:45 at the city fields on Sanibel-

Beachview Men's
Golf Association
by Ed O'Neil
he quality of golf has taken a large
leap this season among members
of the Beachview Men's Golf
Association.
That was evident in the season's first
major, the 36-hole Fall Classic, contested
on November 9 and 13.
Dave Wiseley, a doctor in his former
life, blasted out a first-day 65 and rode
off with a three-stroke victory. His 138
net total was four strokes better than last
year's winning total.
Tony Baldino registered a 141, good
for second place. Wayne Turner was third
with 145.
The sub-par demand continued
through the A Flight. In fact, Bjom
Olsson knocked out the week's best total
with 66-69-135. The husky Swede now
from Missouri was an easy winner. Tom
Ware and Jay Allen tied for second with
145s and Ware went on to win a playoff
for the runnerup trophy.
A hot opening day 65 also served to
decide the Gold Flight. Dick Chocol made
the good start hold up for a one-shot vic-
tory over Rene Lohser. Lohser's final day
run was stymied when he needed three
shots to get out of a bunker.
That left him with a 137 to Chocol's
136. Ralph Barton, a plucky World War
II veteran,was third with 144.
Golfers have it easy today compared


with other eras. Local rules allow rescue
from mulch, menacing iguanas, love-
struck alligators and a variety of other
potential pitfalls.
Someone at Beachview came up with
a historical gem the other day, a copy of
Temporary Rules at the Richmond golf
club in Great Britain.Temporary meant
during the Battle of Britain which was at
its peak in 1940.
To save the mowing machines, mem-
bers were asked to collect bomb and
shrapnel scraps.
During gunfire or falling bombs, play-
ers were permitted to take cover without
penalty. The club marked positions of
unexploded ordnance with red flags a
reasonably safe (but not guaranteed) dis-
tance.
A ball lost or destroyed by enemy
action could be replaced, not nearer the
hole. And a ball landing in a crater could
be dropped for no penalty.
But concentration was demanded by
the final rule: "A player whose stroke is
affected by the simultaneous explosion of
a bomb may play another ball from the
same place. Penalty one stroke."#

Sanibel Adult Softball League
Aztec Warriors Get Tepee-d


I



L~4.


Sanibel Grill
by Nick Brown
The Aztec Plumbing Warriors came out to the Sanibel softball field last
Wednesday in their war paint. They tried to ambush the tribe of Sanctuary
Island Electric, but the polish on their tomahawks gave them away and the
ambush turned into a fiercely contested battle. Aztec took an early 6 to 1 edge until
Sanctuary Electric turned their breakers on and let the energy flow to eventually
take a 20-7 lead. Aztec began building a comeback pyramid but got stopped short.
Final: Sanctuary Electric 22, Aztec 17.
In the other games of the night, the undefeated Sanibel Grill played longtime rival
Williams and Williams. Sanibel Grill must have loaded up on propane and lit a match
because they set fire to Williams and Williams in a 22-5 beat down. Sanibel Grill's ever
hot offense was led by Ron "the Reaper" Rosen's stand-up triple and Matt Palfri's
homer. "We spanked the Williams Sisters," said Palfri.
In the final game of the night, the Bay to Beach Bombers flew another successful
mission against All Island Glass and Aluminum. The Bombers were ignited early in the
game by Greg Gleason's solo homer that blew away All Island Glass. Bay to Beach


Williams and Williams
Bombers went ballistic
after that in a 25-8 win.
The Sanibel Softball
League plays every
Wednesday night at
the Sanibel Ball Fields.

PGA Tips

Hybrids Or Rescue Clubs
by Matt Oakley, PGA Golf Professional
Technology has changed the game forever. Long irons
are a thing of the past. Even the PGA Tour players are
now playing hybrids and have retired the longer irons. A
hybrid or "rescue club" is a combination of a long iron and a
fairway wood. It looks a lot like the old driving irons.
Here are a few tips on how to hit these clubs and make lon-
ger shots as easy as a wedge shot:
1. Place the ball in the front of the stance like your driver or
fairway woods.


ISLAND SUN - NOVEMBER 19, 2010 19B
The ball should be placed in the stance inside of the left heel.
2. Place the weight evenly in your stance at address.
Not too much weight on the left or right side of the body, right in the middle. Be
comfortable at address.
3. Use a sweeping strike to hit the ball.
Make practice swings feeling the club brush the grass at your left heel, but not mak-
ing a big divot. Where I see the biggest trouble with these shots by amateurs is that
they tend to not hit any ground at all and hit a bladed, low, short shot. If you brush the
ground a little the ball will go higher and further.
4. Swing through to a nice finish after the strike.
Keep your swing moving through to a full finish, don't quit after you hit it.
Schedule a lesson with your PGA professional on this important weapon in your
arsenal.0

Hidden Treasures
Topaz: The Gemstone For November
by Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell
L- )r the last time this year, our column will feature the his-
tory, mythology and facts surrounding various birthstones.
I November celebrates the golden topaz.
Known for at least 2,000 years, topaz is considered a protec-
tion against enemies and a symbol of beauty and splendor. The
gem is said to dispel sadness, anger and nightmares, warn its
wearer of poisons and protect the wearer from sudden death.
The name topaz comes from the Sanskrit and means fire. The
Greeks believed it had power to increase strength and to make
its wearer invisible while the Romans believed it had power to
improve eyesight. The Egyptians wore it as an amulet to protect
them from injury.
Topaz occurs in a wide range of colors including yellow, yellow-brown, honey-
yellow, flax, brown, green, blue, light blue, red and pink, and is found in Brazil, Sri
Lanka, Pakistan and Russia. Naturally pale to medium blue topaz is enhanced by irra-

diation to produce a more intense
blue color.
Topaz is a hard gemstone that is
very resistant to scratching, and can
be cleaned with most any commercial
jewelry cleaner or plain soap and
water using a soft brush.
The most famous topaz is actu-
ally a colorless topaz that was ..
originally thought to be a diamond.
It is a 1,680-carat stone known as
the Braganza Diamond set in the 1 *,
Portuguese Crown Jewels. Another b . "
beautiful topaz is in the Green Vault
in Dresden, which has one of the K
world's most important gem collec- t -
tions.
Topaz is also the birthstone for
December (blue topaz), a talisman for
Sagittarius, as well as the gem that
celebrates 4th, 19th and 23rd wed- Topaz rings
ding anniversaries.

The Cutting
Edge Of Clean,
Comfortable Air
by Bryan Hayes
j[.= H jear ye, hear

Announcing the
newest, cleanest,
bestest (not an
actual word) air
. purifying system to
ever hit the market.
Get them while they
last, they are selling
like hot cakes...wait a minute, have you
ever been somewhere that sells hot cakes
other than a pancake breakfast?
Anyway, back to task. We are con-
stantly bombarded with ads just like this.
But this time, it's all true. No, really,
Scout's honor. Okay, enough messing
around.
Here is the straight dirt on the system,
(pun intended).
The system utilizes your air condition-
ing system to bring contaminants down-
stream to help purify the air we breathe.


How this system differs from past systems
is it utilizes several different technologies
all in one package.
It has a pre-filter to catch the big stuff.
The air is then passed though what is
known as a field charger; this will charge
the particulates so they are readily attract-
ed to the collection cells. Think static
electricity. What you end up with is clean,
crisp, hospital-quality air. And all of the
filtration parts are easily consumer wash-
able and reusable.
Research has shown these systems can
trap particulates down to .1 micron in
size. To give you an idea how small that
is, look at the period at the end of this
sentence. Two million of these tiny bug-
gers can fit in the space of that period.
These systems are 100 times more
effective than those cheap throwaway
filters. They are especially helpful for peo-
ple with allergies, who have dusty houses,
or just want the best air possible.
Thanks for reading.
Bryan and Todd Hayes are sanibel air
conditioning and electrical servicecontrac-
tors. For more information or to reach
them, visit www.Sanibelair.com.

The Powder
Room
by Marcia Feeney
Stalled all
kinds of
. names - hall
bathroom, powder
room guest bath,
half bath, little's
girl's or boy's
room, it's probably
the smallest room
in your home.
And, all too often,
it's the most blandly decorated room in
your home. And worse still, it's probably
the room most often frequented by your
guests.
So why not let your imagination and
creativity flow into overtime. Make a bold
statement in the room. Work on creat-
ing a focal point. It's not uncommon for
these small rooms to have no window,
and let's face it, there's not much beauty
in a toilet and vanity.
Here are a few ideas you might want
to incorporate when considering giving
this room a complete makeover.
1. Start with the vanity. Replacing a
plain laminate top with a beautiful granite
surface might be just ticket. Or how about
considering some of the handsome furni-
ture pieces that are not only gracious but
fully functional. They are totally designed
to give a small powder room a fabulous
focal point.

2. Dramatic wallpaper could certainly
reduce the boxy feeling these small rooms
are typically known for. Think about
selecting something exciting and spec-
tacular. Today's faux finish wallcoverings
come complete with embedded jewels
and crystals. Just think of the drama you
can create.
3. Your flooring. How about replac-
ing that vinyl with a new laminate or tile
floor. Even a multi-patterned area rug
might add just the right touch to this oft
used space.
So how about it? Get up right now
and go and look in your powder room.
Could it use a little makeover - or a large
redo? If so, give your interior designer a
call. Together you can create a room that
your guests will rave about.

tor on Sanibel. She can be reached at

Sanibel Featured
In Bailey Fish
Adventure Series
he alphabet cone shell, the shell
museum and a popular used-book
store on Sanibel are part of the
inspiration for Linda Salisbury's new-
est book in the Bailey Fish Adventure
series, Treasure in Sugar's Book Barn.
Salisbury will autograph copies of her
books on Friday, November 26 from
1 to 3 p.m. at The Island Book Nook,
2330 Palm Ridge Road and Saturday,
November 27 from 1 to 3 p.m. at
Nanny's Children's Shoppe, 2250
Periwinkle Way.
The series is based on an 11-year-
old Florida girl, Bailey Fish, who is sent
by her traveling mother to live with her
grandmother, Sugar, in Central Virginia.
Bailey has fond recollections of Sanibel,
where she and her mother, a writer, visit-
ed and gathered shell treasures numerous
times on the beach. Bailey's best friends
are adopted 12-year-old brothers Noah
and Fred Keswick, who live next door at
a country inn owned by their parents.
Sugar's Book Barn is opened in a little
barn on the property. When Bailey and
the boys help Sugar unpack the cartons
of used books, they make astonishing dis-
coveries and the adventure begins.
The newest book, the eighth in the
award-winning series, was inspired by the
Island Book Nook, which for years was
owned by the now late Joan Simonds,

and today is owned by Melanie and Jan
Wiford.
"Much like the bookstore owners,
Sugar decides to sell a mix of used
books and her favorite new ones," says
Salisbury, who owns a timeshare on
Sanibel. "I loved how Joan knew her
stock and made perfect recommendations
for her customers, just as the Wifords
continue to do."
The inspiration for clues in the story's
mystery is an unusual shell on display at
the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum. "I
visited the museum last year when I was
working on details for the book," says
Salisbury, "and have received help from
Jose Leal, the museum's executive direc-
tor as I've verified information for the
nonfiction material in the back."
She said during a visit to the island she
read an article about Harlan Wittkopf and
a brochure he had developed for school
children. That led to using the fun shell
in the book. "I immediately purchased
an alphabet cone shell at one of the local
shell shops to take to schools and pro-
grams. Kids and adults are fascinated by
it," she said.
Salisbury's books have won various
awards, including gold and silver from the
Florida Publishers Association, bronze
from the Eric Hoffer, Moonbeam, and
ForeWord book contests.
Autographed copies of the book may
be reserved by contacting The Book
Nook at 472-6770 or Nanny's at 472-

available at the Sanibel Island Bookshop

Will Power
The Four Powers Absent In Your
Durable Power Of Attorney
- by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified
Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA


hat can
be more
boring
than your Durable
Power of Attorney
-document? Most
of the time it's
considered a form
where you name
someone who
would have the authority, in essence, to
legally bind you by signing a document
for you. You might be surprised to learn
that the Durable Power of Attorney is a
very important legal document, and that
many of them don't contain powers that
are absolutely essential in the modern
world of estate planning.
Today I'm going to describe four pow-
ers that you might want to have your
estate planning attorney include in your
Durable Power of Attorney if those pow-
ers aren't there yet.
The first power is the power to make
gifts on your behalf. We all know that we
can make $13,000 tax free gifts to any-
one we want. We can also make unlim-
ited gifts for medical expenses so long
as the payments are made directly to the
medical care provider, as well as unlimited
gifts for educational expenses so long as
the payments are made directly to the


educational institution.
In the event of your incapacity, how-
ever, the person holding your Durable
Power of Attorney cannot legally make
the tax free gifts unless they specifi-
cally have the power to make those gifts
imbedded in the document. The IRS does
not consider a gift made under a Durable
Power of Attorney that does not specifi-
cally mention the power to make gifts to
be tax free.
A general power to do "anything that
I can do myself" or words to that effect is
not specific enough in the IRS' eyes. You
might believe that this is not an impor-
tant power because you don't commonly
make gifts to your family. But this power
may be more important that you think.
Consider a situation where you need
long term care and you don't have
enough money to support yourself for
the rest of your life. Or you might find
yourself in a situation where your long
term care costs may financially ruin your
family, leaving your spouse or other
loved ones destitute. In this situation,
the person holding your Durable Power
of Attorney may need to transfer assets
out of your name so that you can qualify
for Medicaid. Here the power to make
a transfer in the form of a gift is vitally
important.


The second power is to establish and
fund trusts. In a situation where you are
incompetent but you need the person
holding the Durable Power of Attorney
to qualify you for Medicaid as I described
in the last paragraph, not only must the
holder of your Durable Power of Attorney
need to have the ability to make transfers
of your assets, but they also may need
the power to create and fund trusts. Trust
planning may be integral to qualifying
for long term care benefits - or to mini-
mize taxes. Unless the Durable Power
of Attorney specifically includes such
powers, chances are the governmental
agencies dealing with the issues will not
consider it to be sufficient for the holder
of your Durable Power of Attorney to
create and fund your plan legally.
A third power concerns IRA and
other retirement account benefits. After
you are age 701/2 the IRS mandates that
you withdraw a minimum distribution
from your account annually. You may
already have the minimum distribution
automatically deposited into your check-
ing account. But if there is a medical or
other emergency requiring greater access
to the IRA account, your Durable Power
of Attorney better give the power holder
the ability to withdraw funds from the
account, or to change your minimum
required distribution.
Finally, especially if you are financially
supporting someone else, it might be
important for your Durable Power of
Attorney to contain not only provisions
for your own financial care, but that it
authorizes distributions to those who you
support. A common example of this is


when you financially support an aging
parent or other relative. If you should
fall ill, the person holding your Durable
Power of Attorney should be expressly
authorized to use your financial accounts
to continue to support those that you
have always supported and who may
need your support.
The bottom line is that you should not
think of your Durable Power of Attorney
as a form document. Read through it,
and if there are any powers that should
be there that are not, visit with your
estate planning attorney to make sure
that those powers are drafted into the
document.

Edison Small Business Workshops
Small businesses in Lee County are facing challenging times. Edison State College
is launching the Center for Business and Entrepreneurship to provide services to
the local business community.
Businesses have the opportunity to start the New Year off right by taking advantage
of the Taking Care of Business workshop series beginning in January. The first two
workshops will be held at the Cape Coral Community Redevelopment Agency, 1231
Cape Coral Parkway East, in the Big John's Shopping Center). They are directed to
the small business community in Cape Coral and the surrounding Lee County area.
The workshops will have seven 90-minute sessions each with a different topic and
will take place at a convenient time for working professionals. The workshops in this


series focus on the skills needed to start a business, Is a Small Business Right for Me?",
Improve Your Existing Small Business, and Obtain a Competitive Advantage. The cost
is $20 for each workshop and participants may attend one or all of the sessions.
"I have a better understanding of the business world as a whole, the role my busi-
ness plays in my community and the impact I have on my business as its leader," said
Carolyn Keiling, a recent student in Edison State's Small Business Management Class.
"I was given the opportunity to step away from the everyday struggles and challenges
of running a small business, get a broader view, take stock of my present circumstanc-
es and then set goals for the future. I would urge anyone operating a small business,
or considering doing so, to take advantage of the education provided at Edison State
College."

-~~~~~ I _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _


My name is Pumpkin
and I was found
half starved and
lying in the street. When
the Animal Control officer
tried to help me up, I col-
lapsed. No one thought
I would make it through
the night, but I did. I was
sent to a wonderful foster
home to recuperate. With
such good care I doubled
my weight and have been
learning my house man-
ners. I am crate trained
and I like everyone includ-
ing children and cats. Now
I just need a good forever
home. I will make the best
pet ever for the person or
family that adopts me. My
adoption fee is $75, or
$50 if you donate an item
from the shelter's wish list. Pumpkin before
I'm Terri and I had a
home at one time but
somehow I managed to
wander off and my own-
ers never found me. I'm a
young cat with many years
ahead of me and I would
be a great companion
for someone who craves
unconditional love. I like to
please and in return I'll be
happy if you just pet me
and brush me - my two
favorite things! My adop-
tion fee is $50, or $25
during November when
you donate an item from
the shelter's wish list.
For information about
this week's pets, call
533-7387 (LEE-PETS)
or log on to Animal
Services' website at www.
LeeLostPets.com. When
calling, refer to the ani- Pumpkin today, ID# 486545
male's ID number The
website updates every
hour so you will be able
to see if these or any
other pets are still avail-
able.
The shelter is open
