INSIDE CITY HALL


Magistrate Settles City Employees
Pension Impasse
by Anne Mitchell
T he long-running and costly negotia- . -
tions between the City of Sanibel
and its 85-member general employ-
ees union have been settled by a special
magistrate appointed by the state of
Florida. Now it's up to the city council to
decide whether to accept the plan.
The city had declared an impasse
regarding changes to the employee 11
pension plan. Special Magistrate Irving
Roschbaum issued his recommendations
on November 11 for plan changes which,
if implemented, will lower the city's pen- Judie Zimomra Roy Gibson
sion costs, reduce employees' retirement
pay and increase retirement age.
It's been a long and expensive process, according to City Manager Judie Zimomra.
Through September 30, the city had spent in excess of $90,000 of taxpayers' money
on outside law firms and actuaries, she said.
Employee spokesman Roy Gibson said, "The employees and the city worked
together to provide the magistrate with all of the costs and facts necessary to make
this decision. Employees have agreed to accept the recommended reduction in benefits
that will provide significant cost savings to the pension plan. We hope that council will
accept and implement the magistrate's carefully reasoned recommendations."
The employees are part of the AFSCME (American Federation of State, County
and Municipal Employees) collective bargaining unit. The current agreement expired
September 30.
If city council implements the recommendations, the result of the changes include:
* Reducing retirement pay by 16.7 percent
* Cutting COLA by 27.3 percent (cost of living adjustment)
* Increasing the vesting requirement 20 percent
* Raising retirement age by two years
Since 2006, the city has seen a decline in property values of approximately three-
quarters of a billion dollars with a resultant decline in property tax revenue; lower
revenue from other taxes such as gas taxes, communication service taxes and business
taxes and smaller income from franchise, recreation and other fees.
The city wanted to save $397,000 a year by:


* Freezing the current pension benefits
* Modifying benefits prospectively for all current and future employees
* Employees with 15 or more years of service would retain current normal and
early retirement eligibility as provided in the current plan before changes
AFSCME's position was that the city has sufficient funds to finance the union's
proposal because the city is financially stable and has a substantial cash reserve as well.
Despite the downturn in the economy in the past few years, the city has reduced its
outstanding debt by $8 million and has a combined general fund reserve balance that
exceeds its yearly operating costs.
The union's counsel also noted that the city recently set a millage rate at the roll-
back level, declining to increase its property tax revenue, and that the city's fiscal stabil-
ity is directly attributable to the efforts of both the city and the union to reduce short-
term fixed costs, the city by reducing staff by attrition, enforcing furlough on non-union
employees and reducing salaries, the union by forgoing wage increases over the past
two years and for the 2010-11 fiscal year.
The sticking points in the negotions were:
* The multiplier to be used to calculate the employee's annual retirement allowance;
* The employee's contribution to the pension plan;
* The COLA (cost of living adjustment) after retirement;
* Eligibility for early retirement;
* The adjustment for early retirement;
* Status of new hires with respect to the retirement plan.
Special Magistrate Roschbaum's recommendations are:
1. The pension plan multiplier shall be amended to 2.5 percent.
2. The employee contribution shall remain at five percent.
3. The COLA shall be amended to two percent annually afler three years of retire-
ment with a maximum of 20 years.
4. The eligibility for early retirement shall be amended to age 62 with six years of
service, or age 55 with six years of service.
5. The adjustment for early retirement shall be 2.5 percent for each year under 62.
6. New hires shall be subject to all the amended pension plan provisions.
7. The city and the union agreed to increase the vesting period from five to six
years; and to employees a one-time, irrevocable opt-out option to change from a
defined benefit plan to a defined contribution plan; and to grandfather employees with
17.5 years of service.
The city and union negotiations have been held in private meetings, called "shade
sessions," and were not open to the public or the press.

Museum Offering Training
For Prospective Volunteers
On Friday, December 3, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., the Bailey-Matthews
Shell Museum will hold a training/orientation program for members of the
community interested in learning more about the museum's volunteer pro-
gram. Attendees will learn the history of the museum, its plans for future program-
ming, and the roles volunteers serve.
After a brief presentation by Dr. Jose H.
Leal, museum director/curator, and Diane
Orvis Thomas, the museum's public pro-
grams specialist, light refreshments will be
served and guests will have the opportunity
to meet and talk informally with staff mem-
bers and volunteers.
"Volunteers do not necessarily have the
time; they just have the heart," accord-
ing to author and writing coach, Elizabeth
Andrew.
"Like most not-for-profit organizations
the shell museum operates with a very
small team of six full-time and six part-
time employees," said Leal. "Without our
generous volunteers, the museum would
cease operating as we know it today and
the breadth of services provided would be
impossible to deliver or support."
People volunteer for a variety of rea-
sons. Volunteers have shared the following
comments:
Peg Bisignani, Fort Myers: "The muse-
um's children's program is wonderful. The
interactivity really makes the museum come
alive for the children, many of whom have -
never visited a museum before. It's surpris-
ing how many of the children and adults
for that matter, don't realize that there is Volunteer Joyce Matthys teaches a class
a living creature that makes the shell. The on shell cleaning
most rewarding experience is when the
children get hooked and bring their parents to the museum. It is incredibly exciting to
listen to the children share their knowledge of mollusks with their parents."
Jean Rompala, Sanibel: "It is incredible being around so many wonderful shells
from diverse geographic locations. Meeting people from all over the world who are
drawn to the museum because of their common interest in shells is intriguing. The
other volunteers and the museum team are great and fun to be around. Being associ-
ated with a facility that has a world-wide reputation is an honor."
Diana Eriksson, Sanibel: "Sanibel is such a special place. We want to give back to
the island and to a community that has given so much to us and to do our part to help
children have a great experience. The goal is to make the museum come alive for the
children in a way that helps them to view museums as exciting learning centers instead
of dull or boring buildings."

Due to the addition of interactive learning experiences and new programs, the
museum needs additional volunteers. The roles are as varied as the individuals who fill
them. Areas of need include: special events, education or group docent, exhibit hall
docent, youth docent, library, museum store, educational programs, tour guide, office
assistant, and public relations/marketing assistant.

Friends Who Care Needs Your Help
During the past 28 years, Friends Who Care, Inc. has been assisting individuals
in this community. The organization has assisted many Sanibel residents in
crisis-related situations, working not just with children but with many adults
too.
Friends Who Care works on an anonymous basis through information received
from the police, local churches, schools and other caring individuals in the community.
Many volunteers have joined in the gift collection program, located at the Post
Office, Fire Department, City Hall, The Garden Club, American Business Women's
Association, The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club, The Sanctuary Golf Club, The Senior
Center, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, Bank of the Islands, Sanibel Congregational
United Church of Christ, and Zonta.
This year, Royal Shell will be joining our cause with Friends Who Care Trees at
Tahitian Gardens and The Olde Sanibel Shoppes.
Lily & Co. is hosting its holiday party with a fund raiser for Friends Who Care. The
local service clubs, Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis have contributed funds in support of
Friends Who Care, as have many local realtors and churches and private individuals.
Members of the Kiwanis Club of Sanibel and Captiva make the Santa Run, deliver-
ing all the gifts to the children and seniors on the island on the evening of December
23.
Anyone who can volunteer either day, please come by. Adults only, please. Anyone
with questions can call Sally or Theresa at 472-5152.

Taming Anxiety Seminar
At The Community House
T ense? Anxious? Consumed
With worry? Can't relax?
Join Virginia Jones and
Holly Maiz for Taming Anxiety,
the latest in the Secret Signals B
Seminars series of educational
and experiential workshops. �
Taming Anxiety will take place on
Tuesday, December 7 from 5:30
to 8:30 p.m. at the Community
House, 2173 Periwinkle Way.
In this three-hour workshop,
Jones and Maiz teach tools to han-
dle anxiety as well as provide an
understanding of when and how
these work, why other approaches .
may not be successful and why it
is so hard to change. Interventions
will focus on sensations, thoughts
and behaviors. Depending on
the participants this may include
movement, sound, laughter, bio-
feedback, cognitive strategies,
behavioral changes, mindfulness Virginia Jones and Holly Maiz
meditation, and breathing.
Participates will also become familiar with the sympathetic/parasympathetic ner-
vous system and how and why the brain is so good at creating anxiety. As Jones
explained, "Physiological systems that have developed in our species for tens of thou-
sands of years need to be adapted to the world we live in. In our time, obesity, high
blood pressure, drug dependence and debilitating back pain are a bigger threat than a
wild animal that wants to make you tonight's dinner. "
The seminar will focus on how to relax the parts of us that are not needed for a
task, according to Jones and Maiz. The mind can be active while the rest of the body
is not. Conversely, muscles can be working while one maintains a quiet mind and
relaxed breathing. As Maiz explained, "Often there are sensations that can tell us we
are idling too fast - just like our car. If we focus our awareness on sensation instead of

on thoughts - these are signals that can show us how to intervene, how to interrupt
the cycle or release the built-up tension. That's why learning the language of sensation
- the wisdom of the body - is so important."
Psychotherapists Maiz and Jones bring different but complementary perspectives to
their workshops. Before their psychotherapist training, Maiz was a dancer and Jones
was a biology teacher. Maiz is a body/mind psychotherapist with specialties in addic-
tion, eating disorders and optimal aging, and training in the instruction of Pilates and
Yoga. On Sanibel, she works with groups and individuals. Jones is a licensed clinical
psychologist with specialties in health psychology, anxiety and panic disorders. Also
trained as a biofeedback therapist, she is in private practice on Sanibel.

Colin Stokes, a graduate student in cello

The new meeting place for Sanibel-

remains the same at 7 a.m.
"Play It Forward." How many of us
have heard that expression? In 1204
Moses ben Maimon, the Jewish philoso-
pher, instructed us to "Anticipate charity
by preventing poverty, assist the reduced
fellowman, either by a considerable gift,
or a sum of money, or by teaching him
a trade, or by putting him in the way of
business, so that he may earn an hon-
est livelihood, and not be forced to the
dreadful alternative of holding out his

hand for charity. This is the highest step
and the summit of charity's golden lad-
der." Amazing, isn't it, that this philoso-
phy is as true today as it was in 1204.
Rotary clubs around the world are prime
examples of service organizations that try
to follow a Play It Forward model in their
local communities and around the globe.
Just before Thanksgiving, the Sanibel-
Captiva Rotary Club presented a $2,500
check to Tom Louwers, representing

provide holiday dinner fixings, gifts for
the children of the families, and much
more. These families just need a helping
hand, and this year there are a lot more
families that need extra help. The cur-
rent economy has amplified the need and
even working families are now finding it
necessary to reach out for help. Thank
you, Friends Who Care for all you do in
our community.
Rotary itself has many programs that
exemplify the Play It Forward philoso-
phy; whether it is supplying construc-
tion materials for water wells in Africa
and teaching the people how to build
wells, providing emergency shelterbox
tents in Haiti, supplying polio vaccine to
prevent polio throughout the world, or
distributing wheelchairs to remote vil-
lages of emerging countries. Along with
these outstanding efforts are programs
that promote literacy and education
with a focus on offering scholarships
in this country and others. Our Rotary
Ambassadorial Scholarships offer a pro-
gram that furthers international under-
standing and friendly relations among
people of different countries. Scholars
are expected to be outstanding ambas-
sadors of goodwill to the people of their
host countries through both informal and
formal education and make appearances
before Rotary and non-Rotary groups to
share their country's essence and busi-
ness cultures, as well as concentrating on
their field of study.
At our last meeting the Sanibel-
Captiva Rotary had the privilege of
having as our guest speaker Rotary
District #6960 ambassadorial scholarship


recipient Dr. Joke (Jo Kay) Ogunrinde
from Nigeria, Africa. She is brilliant
spokesperson for her country and
her sponsoring Rotary District #9110
Nigeria. Ogunrinde is now in a program
of study at University of South Florida
with a focus on child mortality. She told
us that as a child she had become aware
of Rotary in Nigeria through posted signs
on water wells, Rotary books, and our
polio eradication projects. She believes
that prevention of disease is cheaper than
a cure. Education against health igno-
rance at a grassroots level is extremely
important. She said, "Educate a mother
and you educate a nation." It is extremely
important to recognize the culture of
your country and educate accordingly.
Ogunrinde is an advocate for improving
health and decreasing child mortality in
the rural areas of her country. Her schol-
arship in the states allows her practical
experience and studies that focus on the
newest medical treatment and care that
can be adapted within her native country.

Zonta Observes
International
Campaign
In concert with Zonta clubs through-
out the world, the Zonta Club of
Sanibel-Captiva is observing Sixteen
Days of Activism against Gender
Violence, an international campaign
which originated from the first Women's
Global Leadership Institute at Rutgers
University in New Jersey in 1991. The
chosen dates for the campaign are
November 25 (International Day for the
Elimination of Violence against Women)
through December 10 (International
Human Rights Day). These particular
days were chosen to reinforce that vio-
lence against women is a human rights
issue and that violence against women is
a human rights violation.
The issue of violence against women
is at the center of Zonta's mission. The
16 Days Campaign is one that has been
taken up by women's groups around
the world in order to shed light on the
problem and to make people aware
that, according to former UN Secretary-
General Kofi Annan, "Violence against
women is perhaps the most shameful
human rights violation."
A different theme is chosen each year.
This year it is Structures of Violence:
Defining the Intersections of Militarism
and Violence against Women, planned
as a multi-year project to address such
issues as the economic consequences of
war on women, women's role in peace


building, violence against women com-
mitted by members of the military, and
sexual slavery in conflict situations. This
theme is timely as on October 20 Zonta
International observed the 10th anniver-
sary of UN Security Council Resolution
1325 which called for parties in conflict
to respect women's rights and to support
their participation in peace processes.
Zonta International President Dianne
Curtis encourages clubs to engage in
activities that raise awareness: "We need
to assist our local communities to under-
stand that all women are vulnerable to
violence no matter their socio-economic
status. We need to be a voice for those
who cannot be heard."
The Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva
actively reflects this directive through its
service projects. In particular, the activi-
ties of the Anti-Human Trafficking service
team focus on change through aware-
ness. Zontian Nola Theiss created Human
Trafficking Awareness Partnerships and
travels throughout the country teaching
other Zonta clubs how to create similar
structures. Nori Ann Reed, the team's co-
chair, said: "Violence against women can
happen in any community, including our
own. Our goal, in partnership with other
leaders of all ages, is to educate people to
recognize signs of domestic violence and
slavery, and to know the steps they can
take to get help."
Club service projects that support at-
risk girls and women in recovery from
substance abuse also have a domestic vio-
lence component, and members work

Lee County
Should Protect
Caloosahatchee
Submitted By Michael Valiquette,
PURRE Chairman
The PURRE Water Coalition sup-
ports the idea of a riverkeeper to
help safeguard the Caloosahatchee
from harm. A recent investigation by
NBC-2 reporter Andy Pierrotti just adds
to the evidence that a riverkeeper, while
a good idea, is not nearly enough.
PURRE has long been alarmed about
municipalities within Lee County bla-
tantly violating laws while fouling the
Caloosahatchee and its estuary. It is our
firm belief that the Lee County Board of
County Commissioners has the responsi-
bility to police the river and must protect
this irreplaceable resource so vital to the
people of Lee County and beyond. When
federal and state agencies such as the
Environmental Protection Agency and
Department of Environmental Protection
don't step up and enforce the laws under
their jurisdiction, the BOCC must step in
and force violating municipalities to com-
ply with the law. The river runs through
all of Lee County; it does not stop and go
around the cities of Fort Myers or Cape
Coral.
This issue was illustrated in a sad and
dramatic way last week by NBC-2 report-
er Andy Pierrotti's story about the city of
Fort Myers' wastewater treatment plant
and its long history of noncompliance
with the federal Clean Water Act. When


he discovered the city had more fines lev-
ied against it than any other locality-more
than $95,000 over the past five years-
he turned to the DEP, the enforcement
agency of the EPA's standards. There he
learned that the city was putting water
into the Caloosahatchee containing "cool-
ing byproducts," better known as chlo-
rine, from the treatment plant containing
toxins that can kill marine life and that at
extremely high levels can cause cancer
and liver damage in humans.
Andy learned that the DEP knew
about this five years ago but let the city
continue to violate the Clean Water Act
because its wastewater treatment plant's
infrastructure was not designed to prevent
the discharges. The city could pay
$3 million for a ultraviolet light system
(UVA) that would kill the toxins, but that
has not been done-yet the city continues
to pay the fines and has applied for "mix-
ing zones," which basically are permits to
break the Clean Water Act and continue
these discharges.
We are counting on our Board of
County Commissioners to take care of
our Caloosahatchee, especially since it
appears that the EPA and the DEP will
not. The river is the engine that drives
our economy; it is the basis of our fragile
and treasured ecology here in southwest
Florida; it is where our history begins; it
is the source of our superb quality of life.
We ask the Lee County Board of County
Commissioners to take over where
the EPA and DEP are falling short and
demand that the municipalities within Lee
County, in this case the City of Ft. Myers,
comply with the Clean Water Act. It is
the law.

Turtles, Tortoises, And Terrapins


Diamondbacked terrapin hatching from egg


he Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation has a long history of protect-
ing 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.
SCCF's Johnson Track and Frannie's Preserve are managed for the foraging needs of
this species, increasing their populations. Habitat management has surveyed the pre-
served interior wetlands, 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 yellowbellied 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
diamondbacked terrapin, is featured in a new 220-gallon tank at the nature center.
This saltwater species lives in the brackish water of the mangrove creeks where they
forage on shrimp, fiddler crabs, and anything else they can dig up.M

Great Mixed Bag
Action Continues
by Capt. Matt
Mitchell
conditions did
not change
" much last
S week, at least not
- enough to bring a
. stop to the great
action we have
been having.
Consistent weather,
wind direction and
strong tides kept
the fishing pattern just about the same.
Low incoming tides continue to be the
best action for the inshore bite on a
great mixed bag of fish including snook
and redfish.
Fishing off the beaches and just out-
side the passes remains on fire with
Spanish mackerel, small kings, ladyfish,
jacks and bonita going off. There were
also a few scattered tripletail found on
crab pots both in the bay and gulf. Gag
grouper action has been good too, both
on nearshore ledges, in the passes and
on structure in the bay.
Fishing just about any deeper man-
grove shoreline in the four- to eight-foot
range with good water flow on the lower
incoming tides caught a great variety of
fish. The species count is about as good
as it gets with just about every variety of
inshore fish being grouped together in
this deeper water during the minus low
tide periods. A lot of the fish are on the
smaller side but with light tackle you just
have to love the non-stop, rod-bending
action.

Some other great rod-bending
action is happening just off the
shoals on the outside of our local
passes. Working the edges of
these shoals with jigs and spoons
is an easy way to keep busy for
hours with all kinds of fish.
Sand Dollar Shoal on the
outside of Captiva Pass is loaded
with fish as long as the tide is
moving. Predator fish including
mackerel, jacks and ladyfish stack
up as the tide boils through here,
confusing the baitfish and mak-
ing an easy meal for the feeding
fish. Small jigs bounced along the
bottom will also catch pompano
and a few flounder around these
shoals.
As temperatures cool off again
with another cold front coming at
the end off this week, our winter-
time sheepshead fishery should
really start to heat up. I have been
catching sheepshead every trip
out but the bigger fish have not
really moved in yet. Sheepshead
fishing will remain a sure thing all
winter long with the tasty striped
fish found just about everywhere
throughout our inshore waters.
Highlights on my boat last
week included a 36-inch snook,
a 13-pound redfish and a
10-pound-plus black drum. All
these very memorable fish ate live
shrimp bounced slowly across the
bottom on a 1/4 oz. jig head. This
time of year you just never know
what that next bite will bring.
One minute it's small fish after
small fish then bang. That next
bite could easily be that one big
quality fish that makes the trip.
I caught and released more
snook last week than I have
since fishing the passes in August a
September. Most have been betwe(
around 20 and 24 inches but there
few bigger ones in the mix too. It's
to see and catch snook again after
snook fishing has been almost imp(
during the daylight hours for the la.
months.


The redfish of the week, a 13-pounder
The hot snook bite of the week came
nd while mangrove fishing the low flood tide
en in the middle sound. Anchoring off one
are a of my favorite deeper shorelines, the first
good two casts produced a great double header
our within 30 seconds of the baits hitting the
possible water. One snook measured 28 inches
;t few and the other fish was a real pig in the
15-pound, three-inch range. Using light


spinning gear, my anglers had their hands
full. The bigger snook made run after run
along with some great jumps.
One dead tree on this shoreline pro-
duced nine or 10 snook over a half-hour
period along with lots of rat reds and
small gag grouper. All the snook ate
handpicked shrimp and would not touch
either a freelined whitebait or pinfish.
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.#

Sanibel-Captiva Power Squadron













Representing the squadron at the district event were Fay Carney, Carol Allen, John
Carney, Jack Purse, Bob Allen, Bill Lucas, Mary Paige Abbott, Steve Abbott, Janice Purse,
Sami Lucas-Hurn, Dave Ross, and Vicki Ross
T he Sanibel-Captiva Sail and Power Squadron was represented by everyone
pictured above at the United States District 22 rendezvous at Burnt Store in
Charlotte Harbor.
There are 18 squadrons in the district running from Marco Island to Anclote Key
on Florida's gulf coast. The squadrons all work to promote safe boating, primarily
through education. Their efforts vary slightly by squadron location and the different
coastal conditions.
At an event such as this, information is exchanged on the world of boats, electronic
navigation aids, and the ever progressing changes in laws. Also, ideas for safe boating
that work for one squadron are exchanged with others.
There also is squadron fun and competition with a variety of events. Included were
a written test on boating knowledge, identifying various knots, a dingy boat race,
accuracy in tossing a line to a dock master (they don't need to be hit on the head with
a line!), docking, accuracy in tossing a life preserver ring, and fastest to don a life pre-
server.
The Sanibel-Captiva squadron was outstanding in winning or placing in most
events.4

Sanibel-Captiva Sail And Power
Squadron Recommend Course













Jumping overboard! Hope boat is anchored. Good to see life preservers.

The other day I saw a fiberglass runabout speeding in one of our sandbar areas
with three young children (no preservers) sitting on the slick bow (no bar rail)
with feet dangling over the edge. An accident waiting to happen.
Probably the best basic course for safe boating is America's Boating Course. It is
approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administers (NASBLA), is
recognized by the United States Coast Guard and is accepted by most states (includ-
ing Florida) as meeting their requirements for obtaining a safety certificate as may be
required for operation of water craft.
If the operator of the run-about had taken the course, he or she would know the
importance of life preservers for all, especially young children. He would know that
riding a smooth bow (with or without bar rails) is forbidden. He would know our waters
and navigation aids (markers or buoys). He would also know what safety equipment
is required such as fire extinguisher, running lights, sound device etc. He would know
how costly improper boat operation and lack of proper equipment can be.

Fish Tales Are Sometimes True


Brian Burns of Colorado caught and immediately released this bonita on an outing with
Capt. Jeff Zasadny of Jensen's Marina and Burns' son, Jesse, age 9

submitted by Carol Burns
Brian Burns of Salida, Colorado, had a successful day fishing with charter Capt.
Jeff Zasadny of Jensen's Marina on November 22. His best catch of the day
was this large bonita caught early afternoon in calm Gulf waters beyond Redfish
Pass. He used light spinning tackle with shiner bait to catch, and immediately release,
this 30 inch bonita.


It was a lucky day for the
second year in a row for son
Jesse Bums (age 9), also of
Salida, Colorado, when caught
and released a huge snook. At
exactly 33 inches and approxi-
mately 12 pounds, this catch
was bigger than the snook he
landed last November.
Capt. Zasadny of Jensen's
had the group fishing on the
bay side of Captiva during high
tide at dusk and were fishing
with light tackle and shiner bait
when Jesse landed the monster
snook.
The Bums family fisher-
men on board with Zasadny
included Jesse's dad, Brian,
along with grandfather, Bill, of
Clarence Hollow, NewYork,
and uncle Kevin from
Humboldt County, California.
Their combined catch during
this day included several mack-
erel, grouper, and sea trout plus
a large bonita and a black tip
shark.0


Jesse Burns, with dad Brian, won't need to tell a tall
tale about this monster snook


Explore The Christmas Star Mystery
C aptiva Cruises will be offering a new cruise throughout this holiday season

Plant Smart

Coral Plant
by Gerri Reaves
E ven though coral plant
(Jatropha multifida)
is not a Florida native,
it is a desirable ornamental
among butterfly enthusiasts
and gardeners who love
vivid color in the landscape.
It provides nectar to hum-
mingbirds and butterflies,
particularly monarchs, swal-
lowtails and zebras.
Although usually called
coral plant, another common
name, Guatemala rhubarb,
definitely has more pizzazz.
This member of the
spurge family develops into
a shrub or a single-trunked
tree six to 10 feet high.
The large evergreen
leaves are about a foot
across and deeply divided
with up to 11 very narrow
lobes.
The coral-pink flowers
appear in flat clusters on
long stalks and bloom inter-
mittently throughout the
year. Each small flower has
five pointed petals and yel-
low flower parts.
The yellow fruit is small
and round.
Coral plant is drought


tolerant and medium
to fast growing, prefer-
ring a hot, sunny, dry
spot. While adaptable
to a wide range of soils,
it does not tolerate salt
water or spray.
Use it as an accent or
buffer, or even an attrac-
tive patio or container
plant.
Propagate it with cut-
tings or seeds.
Caution: Avoid plac-
ing coral plant where
pets or children might
be tempted to sample
the toxic foliage or seed
pods. The milky sap in
the stems can be a skin
irritant.

Shell Museum Lunch And Learn
Program, And Fossil Dig Excursion
If you are interested in fossils, Florida
is the right place to be. Five to 25 mil-
lion years ago much of what we know
today as the state of Florida was covered
by ocean water. Skeletons of shell-bearing
organisms accumulated in large numbers
on the sea bottom. Over the course of
millions of years, the continued burial
of shells in sea floor marine sediment
resulted in compaction, eventually turning
the sediment into rock layers. When the
sea level dropped, land was exposed, and
successive layers remained as fossil-rich
deposits.
In early December, The Bailey-
Matthews shell museum is sponsoring two
opportunities to "dig into" Florida's under
the sea past. On Friday, December 10,
from noon until 1 p.m. shell museum vol-
unteer Sue Sprout will lead Friday Lunch
Hour at the Museum.
The workshop will begin with a hands-
on experience. Participants will be able to
get up close and personal with specimens
that Sprout has collected in Florida; fossil
shells that are hundreds of thousands of
years old. Then the group will go behind-
the scenes at the museum to visit the
collections area. Sprout will demonstrate
the process and protocols for bringing
specimens into the museum's scientific col- Fossil exhibit
election.
Participants are asked to bring a sack lunch. After visiting the collections depart-
ment, the group will have a picnic and an informal question and answer session. The
program is free with museum admission.
Sprout began shelling with her parents as a child in Ocean City, New Jersey. In
1.


1982 she and her husband Richard visited Sanibel for the first time. Bit by the shell
bug, they began spending Christmas breaks on Sanibel. As retired school teachers,
beginning in 1999, Sanibel became their home for five months of the year. The third
quarter of the school year is spent joining The Sanibel School 6th grade enrichment
instructor, teaching students about mollusks, preparing them to staff the live tank
exhibit at the shell show. Sprout also serves as a shell museum education docent as
well as a curatorial assistant, cataloguing the museum's fossil collection.
On Saturday, December 11, Dr. Gary Schmelz, chairman of the board for the shell
museum, will lead a fossil digging excursion to Big Island Excavating, an active quarry
in Collier County. Reservations are required for the trip. This is a rare treat as fossil pit
excavation is difficult to access without a leader and special permission.
Dr. Schmelz was awarded an undergraduate degree by Fairleigh Dickinson
University and a master's and a doctorate degree in marine biology by the University
of Delaware. He has developed a myriad of educational programs for children and
educators, receiving the Elsie MB Naumburg Award (1985) as the leading environmen-
tal educator in the United States. Most recently he was a professor of marine biol-
ogy, oceanography and environmental science at Edison College, in Naples.
Participants will meet at the shell museum at 7:30 a.m. and carpool to the dig
location where they will join Dr. Schmelz and Collier County residents. The group
can expect to discover sea biscuits, sand dollars, coral, and shells over 500,000
years old.
The trip will conclude with a late lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse. The group is
expected to arrive back on Sanibel by 4 p.m. There will be a minimum group size
of 11 and maximum of 20. The cost of the trip is $23, which does not include
transportation or lunch. To make a reservation and for specific information about
what tools to bring or what to wear, contact Diane Orvis Thomas, public program
specialist, at 395-2233.#

CROW Case Of The Week:

Black Skimmer
by Brian Johnson
The black skimmer, known scientifically as Rynchops niger, is a bird that likes
the tropical climates of North and South America. These birds have very
interesting and colorful beaks. The upper and lower beaks are the same size
in hatchlings, but over time the lower beak grows much longer, allowing these sea-
birds to use their distinctive skimming motion when they fly over the water hunting
for fish. They literally skim the water with their lower beak, funneling fish into their
mouth.
On November 10, Frank Thompson found a black skimmer sitting alone on a
beach in Fort Myers. The 300-gram creature could not walk or fly and chances for
survival were dwindling by the minute.
Dr. Stephanie French examined the bird at CROW. "She was a little pale and skin-
ny, and really really weak," said Dr. Amber McNamara.
The bird was given fluids and the Chinese herb Four Gentlemen as well as Vitamins
B and C. She had no interest in food.
It was not clear exactly what had happened to the skimmer. She had some of the
symptoms of a toxicosis poisoning -- generalized weakness -- yet she had a full eye
blink and could stand up. She had no fractures nor did she appear to have suffered
some type of collision or accident.
So CROW staff provided supportive care, offering fluids, fish and a heat lamp, and
waited to see how matters would develop. She was offered fish by hand and began to
eat slowly and gradually regained strength. By the third day, the bird's appetite had
kicked in and she ate 32 smelt.
"She was very content to go to the bathtub, splash around and then hop up onto a
brick under the heat lamp," said Dr. Amber.
On Day 5 she surprised the staff by jumping out of the bathtub and making a short
flight in the clinic. Though still wobbly on her feet, she looked like a new bird.
"We don't get a lot of skimmers," said Dr. Amber. "Their beak is kind of like a pair
of butter knives. They can't eat on their own out of a bowl so we have to hand feed
them. This bird was very cooperative and patient and even put on weight."
Weighing in at 335 grams, the black skimmer was returned to the wild after just
one week at the clinic.
CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife
hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from the Gulf
Coast of Florida. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to
5 p.m. Mail donations to PO Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit:

ter of Sanibel, and the Bailey property falls squarely within that tradition.
This acquisition would preserve more than 1,000 feet of vegetation along
Periwinkle Way near Donax Street, keeping the natural ambiance of this section of
Sanibel's primary roadway. Behind the screen of trees lining Periwinkle, there are the
Bailey buildings and a wide open field once farmed by the family. Behind that, the
property extends into 15.22 acres of upland habitat, vital to bobcats, gopher tortoises,
marsh rabbits and resident and migratory songbirds. The remaining acreage is com-
posed almost entirely of freshwater interior wetlands, so important for wading birds
and other wildlife.
For both wildlife and people visiting the property, the land contiguous to the Bailey
property also makes it very desirable. Restoring the Bailey acreage allows for an
extended corridor for wildlife across adjacent lands already preserved by SCCF and the
City of Sanibel. Closer to the buildings on the Periwinkle side of the property, a trail
could be created. It would be possible for people to start at Roadside City Park to the
west of the Bailey property and travel due east through conserved lands. It could con-
nect to the city's Pond Apple Trail, allowing off-road travel all the way to the Chamber
of Commerce parking lot and the causeway islands!
Once funds are raised to purchase the property, work will continue to optimize the
land for wildlife habitat, including the removal of invasive non-native plants (except for
some of the "historic" trees on the site) and re-vegetation with native species. SCCF's
Wildlife Habitat Management staff will do pre- and post-restoration studies to track the
increased use of the habitat by wildlife. We will also reach out to the city to plan for a
trail to be enjoyed by residents and visitors without encroaching on the critters.
The $5.3 million fundraising campaign has four main components:
* Acquisition of the 28.3-acre Bailey Homestead for $4 million
* Restoration of the Bailey Family Home as a place to tell the Bailey family history
and as a Center for Conservation History.The initial restoration costs included in this
campaign total $225,000, not including the sweat equity of SCCF's volunteer carpen-
ters, the Hammerheads.

Trail and location of possible trail through the Bailey property

* Wildlife Habitat Restoration. Consistent with earlier land acquisitions, SCCF needs
to raise an additional 10 percent or $400,000, to support the initial restoration and
ongoing management of the land in perpetuity.
* SCCF's conservation work for the islands. The last component supports the qual-
ity work being done in all program areas and addresses SCCF's operating expenses,
specifically those not covered by grant monies and other income generated by SCCF
staff. To balance the annual operating budget, $675,000 must be raised as part of this
campaign.
If you would like to learn more about the campaign, contact SCCF Executive
Director Erick Lindblad at 472-2329, or email elindblad@sccf.org or Campaign
Coordinator Cheryl Giattini at 395-2768, email cgiattini@attglobal.net; or visit www.
sccf.org, where online donations can be made.
SCCF is dedicated to the conservation of coastal habitats and aquatic resources on
Sanibel and Captiva and in the surrounding watershed through environmental educa-
tion, land acquisition, landscaping for wildlife, marine research, natural resource policy,
sea turtle conservation and wildlife habitat management.4

Estuary Cruises
Discover how the islands were made
and how homesteaders, hurricanes and
heroes shaped the islands' character.
While on the boat, the possibilities of see-
ing dolphins, pelicans and other birdlife
will demonstrate the rich abundance of
wildlife surrounding these islands.
Kristie Anders, SCCF's education
director, will be leading the trip. Anders
has been a naturalist in South Florida
for over 35 years. She lives on North
Captiva and commutes to work daily by
boat to Captiva. The cost is $25 per
person.
The River Meets the Sea: The Cradle
of Life cruise explores the mouth of
the Caloosahatchee and its estuary on
December 17 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.,
departing from the Marriot Hotel at Punta
Rassa. In this hands-on cruise, passen-
gers will be conducting their own water
sampling while traveling through the
extraordinary back bay waters. Several
of SCCF's RECON (River, Estuary &
Coastal Observing Network) water qual-
ity sensors are located nearby. RECON
tracks key water quality parameters from
Lake Okeechobee to the Gulf of Mexico.
Learn about the linkage between the river
and the greater Everglades ecosystem
(extending from Orlando to Florida Bay).
This cruise is a cooperative trip with
SCCF and Captiva Cruises and will be
led by long-time island residents and
naturalists, SCCF Education Director
Kristie Anders and Captiva Cruises
Environmental Educator, Richard Finkel.


Proceeds from these cruises will help sup-
port SCCF's Education Fund. Cost is $35
adults and $20 children under 12.
On Monday, December 20, from 5
to 7 p.m. there is a cruise to a rookery
island tucked away in Pine Island Sound.
After watching a sunset over the profile
of North Captiva Island, keep an eye
open for ibis, herons, frigate birds and
egrets as they return to their night time
shelter. In the twilight, birds wing their
way across the waters to a tiny mangrove
island that shelters hundreds of birds.
As the boat keeps a safe distance from
the island, passengers -- particularly those
with binoculars -- can watch this evening
ritual. In December, there are generally
fairly large numbers of frigate birds swirl-
ing overhead, eventually alighting on the
outer branches. An almost full moon will
be rising in the eastern sky. Cost is $35
per person.
Call Captiva Cruises at 472-5300 for
reservations on any of these cruises.

Pet Adoption Campaign Aims
To Get Pets Home 4 The Holidays
Lee County Domestic Animal Services (LCDAS) will join more than 3,500 pet
shelters and adoption centers across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Puerto
Rico during Home 4 the Holidays 2010, a national event organized to raise
awareness of the joys of owning shelter-adopted pets. Organizers hope to match
more than 1.5 million dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens with loving, adoptive fami-
lies. LCDAS launched its local campaign on December 1 and by December 31
hopes to place 300 pets from its facility into life-long homes.
In the past some shelters have actually gone so far as to discourage families from
adopting pets during the holidays. This did not stop them from getting new pets. It just
took away the adoption option and forced them to support the puppy mill industry. As
always, the shelter works to match the needs of the pets with the desires of the fami-
lies.
The adoption fee for all pets includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vac-
cinations, flea treatment, worming, heartworm test for dogs six months or older, feline
aids and leukemia test for cats, a county license for pets three months or older, train-
ing DVD, behavior hotline, microchip pet ID, Hill's Science Diet pet food, and 10-day
health guarantee. The total adoption package is valued at more than $500.
Each week during December adopters also will be entered for a prize drawing. With
all that offered with each adoption, there is no better time to add a new companion to
your family.
Adoption hours at Lee County Domestic Animal Services are 11:30 a.m. to 3:30
p.m. Monday through Saturday. For more information call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS).
Pictures of pets available for adoption can be viewed online at www.LeeLostPets.com.
The website updates hourly.
More information about the Animal Care Trust Fund (ACTF) is also available at
www.LeeLostPets.com. Please remember the ACTF for your tax-deductible year-end
giving. This fund assisted over 1,200 pets during 2009 requiring veterinary care for
illness or injury. Donations can be made online or mailed to: Animal Care Trust Fund,

Meet Your
Dancing With
The Islands" Star
Kym Nader is a perfect example
of what makes Sanibel-Captiva
uch a thriving community. She
and her family moved here two weeks
before Hurricane Charley. Undaunted
and determined to make this island
her home, she settled in, enrolled her
daughter Tess in The Sanibel School,
began her own home decorating busi-
ness and helped her husband open a
restaurant.
Nader and her family continually
support the community and now she is
donating her time and energy to be an
island dancing star.
She graduated from The School of
Visual Arts in New York City and has
always had a passion for design. She
has spent the last six years working on
Sanibel as a freelance interior designer
and finally opened her home accessory
and design studio in The Village Shops.
She donated her time and talents to help
with The Community House's updated
lobby design.
She even took some time out of her
vigorous training schedule at The Fred
Astaire dance studios to volunteer at the
Family Fall Carnival.
Nader said, "I am honored to be a
part of this year's dancing event. My
goal is to raise a lot of money for The
Community House redevelopment project


David Flory, professional dancer, and Kym Nader


to preserve our island asset, and hope-
fully not make a complete fool of myself
dancing."
Nader's husband John owns The
Great White Gril on Sanibel Fundraising
for the dancing star is a family effort as
Team Happy Feet (as they call them-
selves) has organized a dancing fundraiser
on Sunday, December 5 at their restau-
rant. Everyone is invited to come and
"vote" for Nader.
There will be beer and an outdoor
barbecue at The Great White Grill from
3 p.m. to close. There will also be live
music by the Troublestarters and a silent


auction with a chance to bid on a week's
stay at a waterfront condo on Captiva
among other items.

fundraising dance competition on January
22 to benefit the The Community House
Redevelopment Project. The association's
its mission is to enrich community spirit

Technical Upgrades Will Deliver New
Experience To Theater Audiences

ISLAND SUN - DECEMBER 3, 2010 35




the Arts on Sanibel
a home for all the arts


Robert Norman makes adjustments to the new spotlight; the older lighting is on the right
In December, BIG ARTS Strauss Theater will close for six weeks for installation
of a better-quality digital sound and lighting system, an upgrade needed after
many years of heavy use.
To facilitate the upgrades, the scheduled December show, Every Christmas Story
Ever Told (And Then Some) has been cancelled.
BIG ARTS Executive Director Lee Ellen Harder said, "We're excited to see these
improvements happen, and we are looking forward to bringing a more vibrant audio-
visual experience to our audiences." Several spotlights have already been replaced
with new, more energy-efficient spotlights. The new lights have more imaging pattern
options, brighter projection and better optical lenses. Upgrades to the sound equip-
ment is also planned.
Highly-experienced visiting directors have been recruited for each of the shows this
season. Chuck Bonser, president of BIG ARTS, said, "We are excited to have these
professionals join us for the 2010-11 season and are confident the plays will be a big
hit on the islands and in the surrounding area." The next show, The 25th Annual
Putnam County Spelling Bee, opens with a special reception at 7 p.m. Saturday,
January 15. Sponsored by 'Tween Waters Inn, The Bee is a two-time Tony Award-
winning musical comedy.
In February the theater brings back Ray Cooney with It Runs in the Family, which
is sponsored by John Grey Painting and The Cedar Chest Fine Jewelry. The Tony
Award-winning Ain't Mishavin', sponsored by Congress Jewelers, runs in April. The
Strauss Theater season is sponsored by The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company.
The theater, is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. For tickets and discounted
subscription rates call 395-0900 or theater box office at 472-6862.#

Cell Phone Collection For Soldiers
M ore than 150,000 troops are serving overseas away from their families. Cell
Phones for Soldiers along with Action Automatic Door & Gate are calling
on all southwest Florida locals to help support these brave men and women
by donating their unused cell phones. Cell Phones for Soldiers hopes to collect over
1 million cell phones this year to help keep troops connected with their families.
"Over the past few years, we have been amazed by the generosity of others. But
we have also seen the need to support our troops continue," said Brittany Bergquist,
Cell Phones for Soldiers co-founder. "It is easy for Americans to make a small sacrifice
of support by donating their unused cell phones and providing families with a much-
needed connection to their loved ones overseas.
Local residents can support the collection drive by donating their deactivated
phones at any Action Automatic Door & Gate location, including 33966 Metro
Parkway, Fort Myers, FL 33966; telephone 768-3667.
"We're proud to show our support for U.S. soldiers and to contribute to a worthy
cause like Cell Phones for Soldiers," said George Ebel, CEO and owner of Action
Automatic Door & Gate.
The donated phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for
each phone - the money is then used to purchase prepaid calling cards which are sent
to troops.
Approximately half of the phones ReCellular processes are reconditioned and
resold to wholesale companies in more than 40 countries around the world. Phones
and components that cannot be refurbished are dismantled and recycled to reclaim
materials, including:
* gold, silver and platinum from circuit boards;
* copper wiring from phone chargers;
* nickel, iron, cadmium and lead from battery packs; and
* plastic from phone cases and accessories.
Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded by teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist
from Norwell, Massachusetts, with $21 of their own money. Since then, the registered
501(c)3 nonprofit organization has raised millions of dollars in donations and distrib-
uted millions of prepaid calling cards to soldiers serving overseas.0

Messiah And More At
Mastersingers Christmas Concert


Beth Wininger


Robert Beane


Kathy Mofett


The Mastersingers Christmas concert at BIG ARTS on Sunday, December 5 at
7 p.m. will cap a big weekend on the islands. It's the weekend when islanders
and visitors turn out in droves to soak up the sights and sounds of the season
in island fashion with the Luminary Trail. The islands are ablaze with Christmas
lights and decorations and the concert adds another festive touch to the holidays.
In Messiah and More, the 70-voice Mastersingers have a diverse program of music
to please all tastes. Several selections from Handel's Messiah will highlight the pro-
gram. Trumpets and horns will sound with the chorus in the traditional favorites that
bring back memories of a childhood Christmas. Gloria in Excelsis Deo will ring out in
celebration of the season as the chorus sings many Christmas favorites.
Chorus and orchestra will be conducted by Mastersingers Artistic Director Jeff Faux.
Soloists will be sopranos Beth Wininger and Laura Hoyer-Booth, mezzo soprano
Kathy Moffett and tenors Robert Beane and Tom Blinkinsop.
The Mastersingers have opened the Christmas season on the islands at BIG ARTS
for the past six years.
"Each year gets better," said Jim George, president of the group. "It's just a very
festive time of the year and people gravitate to this type of performance because it
puts them in a holiday mood. The BIG ARTS concert is one of the highlights of our

Scene from Sugar
The Maid, a Golden Globe-nominated
drama about Latin America's class gap
as experienced from the near-bottom
looking up, won prizes for best foreign
feature and best actress at Sundance.
Based in real theatrical history, the
romantic Me and Orson Wells is set
in 1930s New York City and stars Zac
Efron, Christian McKay, and Clare
Danes. Roger Ebert praised the film as
"one of the best films about the theater
that I have ever seen."
Sugar was an official selection
screened at the Sundance Film Festival
and was chosen as One of the Top Ten
of 2008 by the American Film Institute.
It presents a side of the baseball world
that is rarely seen, as it tells the story of
a poor boy from the Dominican Republic
who goes to Iowa to play in the minor
leagues.
Enhanced by surround sound, films
will be shown in the Schein Performance
Hall, with a high-definition projection sys-
tem and large screen to provide a superb
cinematic presentation. Listening devices


are available for the hearing impaired.
General Admission is $7, or purchase
a booklet of 13 tickets for $91. Booklet
holders must be seated no later than 6:45
p.m. to ensure a seat. All Monday Night

A Holiday

Extravaganza At

Broadway Palm
by Di Saggau
f f oily Jolly

*, H; � � is now play-
Sing at Broadway
Palm Dinner

It's a holiday
song and dance
extravaganza to
please all ages. The
synchronized open-
ing dance number tells you right away
that you're in for an evening of great
entertainment. Mr. and Mrs. Claus, also
known as Kris and Konnie Kringle, lead
their gang of merry elves through just
about every aspect of Christmas.
A wide world of holiday cheer whisks
you off to Venice as the gondoliers cele-
brate the season. Then it's off to Hawaii,
Mexico and Ireland with a whole lot
more merriment, song and dance along
the way.
You'll hear tunes reminiscent of holi-
days at home. You'll also view the holi-
days through the eyes of a child. Pure


Cast members of Holly Jolly Christmas
Imagination is a song I love. A special
thanks for that one.
The gifted cast sings over 30 holiday
songs and their precision dancing is
outstanding. There's a boogie woogie
number and one with tap-dancing rein-
deer that will knock your socks off. The
true meaning of Christmas is covered in a
beautiful medley that includes a lovely ver-
sion of Mary Did You Know, along with
We Three Kings, Do You Hear What I
Hear? and Silent Night.
There's humor too. Aside from
Santa's admittedly corny jokes, there's
a Blue Christmas number in Elvis style,
that features not one, but three Elvis


impersonators of various sizes. That's a
whole lot of fun.
The quirky antics of some cast mem-
bers also tickle one's funny bone.
The talent will amaze and delight you.
Holly Jolly Christmas has it all; dazzling
sets and costumes, brilliant choreography
and all the songs you want to hear this
time of year. The show is guaranteed to
get you in the holiday spirit. The show
plays through December 25. Tickets are
available by calling 278-4422, by visiting
www.BroadwayPalm.com or by stop-
ping by the box office at 1380 Colonial

44 ISLAND SUN - DECEMBER 3, 2010

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF DECEMBER 6, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)) You
might feel that you have all the answers right
now. But it might be wise to listen to other
ideas before you decide to close the lid on
other possibilities.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bovines
give and expect loyalty, so it might not be
easy to reconcile with someone you feel let
you down. Why not ask a neutral party to set
up a clear-the-air meeting?
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Anticipating the holidays with family and
friends fuels your must-do Gemini energies.
But try to pace yourself so you'll be up for
whatever comes along later.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) More
background information might come through
regarding a decision you expect to make. Be
sure to check the source carefully before you
move.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) The strong,
nurturing nature of the Lion comes through
this week as you reach out to family and
friends in need of your warm and loving sup-
port.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A
relationship that has almost totally unraveled
could be close to being restored with more
effort on your part to be more patient and less
judgmental.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Your sense of fair play is strong this week,
which can cause a problem with a longtime
relationship. But in the end, you'll know what
decision to make.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November
21) You might not know all the facts behind
an unwelcome development, so keep that
Scorpion temper in check and resist lashing


out at anyone.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) This is a good time to reinforce
relationships -- family, friends, colleagues
-- that might have been overlooked in recent
years.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Family situations continue to thrive.
Business associations also improve. Some
holiday plans might have to be shifted a bit.
Be flexible.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Avoid any influence of negative energy in this
week's aspect by not allowing small problems
to grow into large ones. Work them out imme-
diately.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A
friend might need advice on how to deal
with a challenge to his or her moral values.
And who better than you to give the honest
answer? Good luck.
BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sense
of adventure that inspires others to follow
your lead.


* On Dec. 11, 1872, dime-novel hero
Buffalo Bill Cody makes his first stage
appearance in a Chicago-based production
of The Scouts of the Prairie. Cody remained
on the Chicago stage for the next 11 years.
Buffalo Bill Cody was the hero of more than
1,700 variant issues of dime novels.
* On Dec. 6, 1884, in Washington, D.C.,
workers place a 9-inch aluminum pyramid
atop an obelisk of white marble, complet-
ing the construction of the Washington
Monument. A city law passed in 1910 restrict-
ed the height of new buildings to ensure that
at 555 feet, the monument would remain the
tallest structure in Washington, D.C.
*On Dec. 12, 1914, the Dow Jones


Industrial Average suffers its worst percentage
drop (24.39 percent) since it was first pub-
lished in 1896. It was the first day of trading
since the New York Stock Exchange reopened
in November 1914 after being shut down due
to the start of World War I earlier that year.
* On Dec. 9, 1921, an engineer at General
Motors discovers that when he adds a com-
pound called tetraethyl lead to gasoline, he
eliminates the knocking that internal-com-
bustion engines make when they run. In the
1970s, the Environmental Protection Agency
required that carmakers phase out lead-com-
patible engines.
* On Dec. 7, 1941, in an early-morning
sneak attack, Japanese warplanes bomb the
U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii,
and the United States enters World War II.
Two hundred Japanese aircraft destroyed
or damaged 18 U.S. ships and killed 2,400
Americans.
* On Dec. 10, 1967, soul legend Otis
Redding dies in a plane crash near Madison,
Wisc. He was 26. "(Sittin' On) The Dock of
the Bay" would be released in its "unfmished"
form several weeks later. The whistled verse
was a placeholder for additional lyrics that
Redding had yet to write.
* On Dec. 8, 1980, John Lennon is shot
and killed by Mark David Chapman outside
his apartment building in New York City.
Later that evening, police took Chapman into
custody peaceably after finding him reading a
copy of "The Catcher in the Rye" at the site of
the shooting.


* It was comedian-turned-U.S. Senator Al
Franken who made the following sage obser-
vation: "Mistakes are a part of being human.
Appreciate your mistakes for what they are:
precious life lessons that can only be learned


the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake,
which, at least, others can learn from."
* Those who study such things say that
1 percent of the world's lizard species have
no males. The females reproduce by parthe-
nogenesis, which produces offspring that are
clones of their mothers.
* Amazon's Kindle, Barnes and Noble's
Nook, Sony's eReader -- it seems that every-
where you look these days people are reading
onscreen. You may not realize, however, just
how long digital books have been around.
The first e-book was manually typed into a
computer way back in 1971, when Michael S.
Hart, the founder of Project Gutenberg, chose
the Declaration of Independence to be the first
literature so digitized.
* A woman in Tennessee was once arrest-
ed for biking while intoxicated -- and she was
on a stationary bike at the gym at the time.
* According to the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, if you're like the average
American, you drink 22.7 gallons of coffee
every year. The surprising thing about that sta-
tistic isn't how much it is, though -- it's how
little. It seems that in the 1940s, Americans
were drinking twice that amount ofjava.
* If you look at the innards of a Boeing
747 airplane, you'll find a whopping 171
miles of wiring.
* If you consider surface area covered
rather than population, the world's largest city
is in Inner Mongolia, where Hulunbuir covers
more than 160,000 square miles.


"Human beings are perhaps never more
frightening than when they are convinced
beyond doubt that they are right." -- Laurens

Semi-Annual
Writers Reads
submitted by Joe Pacheco
anibel is bursting with challeng-
ing and entertaining events that
showcase the creativity and intel-
lectual abilities of our residents and
visitors. The semi-annual Island Writers
Reads are among the most entertaining
evenings of the season. And they are
also one of the greatest bargains: $5 at
the door buys you an evening of care-
fully chosen and timed prose and poetry
selections.
Participating in the reads is always the
highlight of my Sanibel season. Come
share an unforgettable evening with me
and other island writers at Phillips Gallery
at BIG ARTS Thursday, December 2 at
7:30 p.m. It's the best entertainment buy

On behalf of everyone at CROW,
and especially on behalf of our
wildlife patients, we would like to
thank everyone who helped make this
year's Taste of the Islands a huge suc-
cess.
The participating Sanibel and Captiva
restaurants showed everyone their civic
pride and generosity, but they also
showed what wonderful cuisine can be
found on these islands. Thank you to
the restaurant owners and staff who
worked so hard to help CROW. We also
appreciate the efforts of Iron Chef Judge
Chris Cassel and our Waiter/Waitress
Competition organizer Robert Parks.
Congratulations to all of our award win-
ners.
We also want to thank our sponsors
for their generosity. Heartfelt thanks go
out to Bank of the Islands and Edison
National Bank for being our presenting
sponsor this year. Each year, their staff
helps us manage, distribute, collect and
count the money from the day's activities.
A big thank you to the over 100
volunteers who contributed their time,
energy and efforts on the day of the
event. An event like the Taste can't suc-
ceed without the help of volunteers and
CROW's Taste of the Islands committee
members. A sincere thank you to the
entire staff for their dedication to CROW
and all the extra hours to ensure the suc-
cess of this event!
We appreciate the Kiwanis and Lions
club members who helped man the park-
ing areas. The Sanibel-Captiva Optimists


Club coordinated the children's activities
at the event and with the help of BIG
Arts face-painting and Catering by Leslie
Adams cookie decorating, the children
had a terrific time.
And finally, thank you to each and
every one who attended the 2010 Taste
of the Islands. All of the money raised
goes directly to helping us care for nearly
4,500 wildlife patients each year.
Mark your calendars for November
20, 2011 to help us celebrate the 30th
annual Taste of the Islands Festival.

about domestic violence.
Koerner is a writer and public speak-
er who lives in Naples, Florida. Her
book, Belize Survivor: Darker Side of


would like to extend a huge "thank
you" to Reggie at Island Pharmacy
and his staff members, Ron and
Rebecca!
During this past week I had some
wonderful customers in town from the
UK. While on their vacation, the husband
had a medical emergency, requiring sur-
gery. I happened to run in to his wife at
Island Pharmacy over the weekend, and
she had a long list from the doctor of dif-
ferent over-the-counter medications for
her husband, and being far from "home,"
seemed very confused as to what she
should purchase. I reassured her that she
was in the right place, and immediately
Ron came out and gave her some much
needed assistance.
Later in the week they called me
to let me know that all ended well and
commented on the professionalism and
friendliness of the pharmacy's staff, and
others they encountered throughout their
ordeal. To me it is so wonderful to be a
part of such a caring community as we
have here on the islands. Kudos to Island
Pharmacy for a job well done!

estselling mystery and thriller
writer Harlan Coben will be at
the Sanibel Public Library on
Tuesday, January 11 as part of the
library's Author Series. Coben is famous
for his plots that often involve unre-
solved or misinterpreted events in the
past (murders, fatal accidents and the
like) and his novels often have multiple
plot twists.
Coben was born in Newark, New
Jersey, and raised and schooled in
Livingston, New Jersey. A student of
political science at Amherst College, he
was a member of Psi Upsilon fraternity
with author Dan Brown. His first book
was published when he was 26 years old.
He then began a series of thrillers fea-
turing his character Myron Bolitar, a for-
mer basketball player turned sports agent
who investigates murders that usually end
up involving his clients.
Coben has won an Edgar award, a
Shamus award and an Anthony award.
He is the first writer to have received all
three awards. He is also the first writer
in over a decade to be invited to write
fiction for The New York Times op-ed
page. Hold Tight was released in April,

A Century And Counting:
Celebrating The Sanibel School
Over 100 friends and alumni of The Sanibel School gathered to celebrate
more than 100 years of educational excellence at A Century And Counting
celebration at 'Tween Waters Inn on Saturday, November 20.
A highlight of the evening was the screening of a documentary tracing the origins
of The Sanibel School from its inception through its present status as a nationally
recognized Blue Ribbon School. Several school alumni were present, including Francis
Bailey, the school's most senior alumnus, and Deb Gleason.
"This event surpassed every goal we set," said Sanibel School Fund President Jeff
Weigel. "We couldn't have done it without the dedication of friends of the school and
the support of our sponsors.
Guests had a buffet dinner and were given the opportunity to bid on items for the
school from a wish list compiled by Principal Barbara Von Harten and her staff,

Around The Islands With Anne
Congress Jewelers Is Aglow With
Baubles, Bangles and Shining Stars
by Anne Mitchell
If you're seeking inspiration for gift-
giving for those special people in your
life, make a point of visiting Congress
Jewelers this weekend - Friday and
Saturday - when Isaac Levy, founder
of Yvel of Israel, will be holding a trunk
show featuring pearls set in different col-
ors of gold that bring a modern youthful-
ness to the timeless gem.
Yvel (which is Levy spelled backwards)
weaves magic with freshwater pearls in
pastel and neutral colors, adding diamonds
in cognac shades as well as white and sap-
phire slices in gray, mauve and sage, taking '
away formality for a more casual, freeform
look that matches the island style.
Levy will be on hand Friday from 10
a.m. until 9 p.m. and Saturday from 10
a.m. until 6 p.m. with his entire collection,
including some new, one-of-a-kind pieces.

said it made sense to
offer a more affordable version of the very popular seashells and sea creatures start-
ing as low as $20 - about the price of a T-shirt - and many more at under $50.
Personally, I prefer the look of silver.
There are many ways to get more bling without breaking the bank. Have a "halo
mount" of micro-pave diamonds put around your basic diamond studs, solitaire
diamong ring or pendant and you'll intensify the sparkle.
"Inside-out" diamond hoop earrings also give you more sparkle for your buck. The
front of the hoop is covered with diamonds and so is the inside of the rear of the
hoop, so all you're seeing is diamonds. Roberto Coin's fashion forward yet affordable
designs often feature diamonds cut with 100 facets instead of the standard 58, giving
you that extra dazzle.
Congress specializes in "fancy" diamonds, especially yellow ones. Some are liter-
ally "off the scale" that's used to grade color, putting others in the shade. They also
have a rare collection of vivid aqua Paraiba tourmalines from a mine that's no longer


in use, and emeralds,
sapphires and rubies
as well as one of my
favorites, necklaces
using slices of smoky
quartz rocks - a decid-
edly non-traditional

Team Cameroon Wins
Youth Soccer Championship


Sanibel Air's Team Cameroon poses with coaches after the winning game
anibel Air's Team Cameroon beat out Brazil, Italy and England in the Sanibel
Youth Soccer championship game on Saturday, November 20. Scoring a total
of 18 points to secure the first place, the winning team plays in the club's
U12 (under 12) division.
Coached by Andy Johnson and Sanibel Air Conditioning's Bryan Hayes, Cameroon
took a lead over Brazil with a 7-2 score in the final game. "They played their hearts
out and I'm so proud of them," said Hayes. "Sanibel Air is proud to have sponsored
such a fine team."
Sanibel Youth Soccer is a recreational club for children ages four through 14 who
live on Sanibel and Captiva or whose parents work on the islands. The program is
co-ed and with nearly 200 children, making it one of the more popular youth activities
on the islands. The club prides itself on giving children with all skill levels maximum
participation in the games; each child plays at least half of every match. Coaches in
the club don't make winning a priority and there are no tryout camps or powerhouse
teams.
U12 teams practice one or two times a week, with games primarily on Friday
nights. This division allows 10- and 11-year-olds to compete solely amongst them-
selves, instead of with teenagers.4

P ete Mindel led his Sanibel Cafe team to a solid 10-6 win over the cellar dwell-
ing One Ball Wonders. Mindel posted his first 4-0 record of the season as he
handily dispatched One Ball Wonder shooters' Kip Buntrock and Tracy Walters.
Onlookers pointed out that they expected the victory outburst by Mindel because only
a few days earlier he had produced a perfect score in an American Legion 3-Ball
Tournament. Mindel broke all three balls in with his first and only shot in a feat akin
to bowling's 300 game, golf's hole in one, or basketball's 100-point achievement.
Sanibel Cafe is now four games ahead in first place and Captain Richard McCurry
assured all "that's also where we'll be at season end!"
Fresh Legion Crew came into the evening tied for first place. When the smoke
cleared they occupied second place after absorbing a 10-6 thumping by the surging
Bunt's Ball Busters. Terry Ricotta and Dave Doane had three wins each for the Ball
Busters.
Big match for next Monday night features league leading Sanibel Cafe against last
year's league champs, Bunt's Ball Busters. Only five wins separate the two teams.
Matches start at 6 p.m. at American Legion Post 123. Visitors are welcome and
cheering or jeering is allowed.

It May Be Icy And Bitter In
Minnesota, But The Twins Announce
Their Spring Training Schedule
by Ed Frank
T he winter winds and frigid temperatures may have
engulfed Minnesota this time of the year, but here in
Southwest Florida baseball spring training is little more
than two months away and just a few days ago the Minnesota
Twins announced their 2011 Grapefruit League schedule.
Although single game tickets will not go on sale until
Saturday, January 8, season tickets and group sales are available
now.
. --It's a dandy 16-game home schedule at Hammond Stadium
with visits by the New York Yankees, the St. Louis Cardinals,
the American League Eastern Division Champion Tampa Bay
Rays twice, the National League Eastern Division Champion
Philadelphia Phillies and three games with cross-town rival Boston Red Sox.
Here is the complete 2011 spring training home schedule for the Twins:
Sunday, February 27 - Boston Red Sox; 7:05 p.m.
Tuesday, March 1 - Boston; 1:05 p.m.
Friday, March 4 - Tampa Bay Rays; 1:05 p.m.
Sunday, March 6 - Baltimore Orioles; 1:05 p.m.
Monday, March 7 - St. Louis Cardinals; 1:05 p.m.
Tuesday, March 8 - Pittsburgh Pirates; 1:05 p.m.
Thursday, March 10 - Toronto Blue Jays; 1:05 p.m.

A farm team, also announced their schedule for next season with the home opener
Saturday, April 9, followed by a big post-

We will have more about the Miracle as

The war of words between the Yankee brass and Jeter's agent make for interesting
reading. Reportedly, the Yankees offered the free-agent Jeter a three-year deal for $45
million, saying if he didn't like the offer he should "test the market and see if there's
something he would prefer."
Immediately, the wires buzzed that the Red Sox would jump into the fray with a bet-
ter offer if nothing more than to drive up the Yankee payroll.
Stay tuned. This hassle could go on right up to spring training. In the end, however,
Jeter will most likely return next season as a Yankee.
Everblades Road Victories a Positive Sign
Although the Florida Everblades hockey team has languished around the .500 mark
most of the season, two victories on the road last weekend - a 4-2 win over Reading
Saturday and a 6-2 victory Sunday against Elmira - perhaps are signs of a turnaround.
The Everblades started the week with an 11-9 season record and a third place
standing in the ECHL South Division, six points behind first-place Gwinnett.
Florida is on the road again this weekend at Cincinnati before returning home next
week for a three-game series at Germain Arena with the Greenville Road Warriors,
Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.M



Ho, Ho, Hold Down Your Energy
Costs During The Holidays
by Laura Zocki Puerto, LCEC Public Relations Specialist
W ith gift giving, traveling, and long-weekend guests,
holiday costs can add up. Don't let your electric bill tip
the balance. Below are a few ways to save during the
*holidays.
H Decorating for the Holidays
Most people use standard incandescent lights or mini-lights
to decorate for the holidays. Light Emitting Diode (LED) holi-
day lights have a number of benefits over conventional lighting.
These lights produce extremely high brightness with only a frac-
tion of energy use. In fact, LED lights use 75 percent less energy
than mini lights and last an average of 50,000 hours. LED lights
also don't get hot like conventional bulbs and put less stress on
household circuitry. Although LED lights are more expensive than traditional holiday
lights, this investment will surely pay off in the long run!
Energy-wise Habits
You will notice a change in your electric bill during times when you are home more
than usual, when your children are out of school, or if you have guests staying with
you. Pass on these helpful energy tips:
* Always turn the lights off when you leave a room.
* Turn the TV off when you're not watching it.
* Don't leave ceiling fans on if you're not in the room.
* Take advantage of slightly cooler temperatures. Open the windows for some fresh
air and cost-saving benefits.4

The Dunes Hosts Former Tennis Star


Andrei Pavel, Nicole Melichar and her coach Nick Blackwood


by Brian Johnson
The Dunes Tennis Club held an exhibition on November 23 between former
ATP star player Andrei Pavel and rising 17-year-old phenom Nicole Melichar.
The event was a Meet & Greet for Dunes members to introduce them to
Pavel and the Pavel-Blackwood Tennis Academy, which is now running the tennis pro-
grams at The Dunes, Sundial Resort and South Seas Island Resort. Officially hired on
November 1, the Pavel-Blackwood Tennis Academy is looking to bring world-class ten-
nis training to Sanibel and Captiva. They will partner with Ken and Lisa Thompson,
Florida-based experts in tennis management.
"It's my first time on Sanibel, and this is an amazing place," said Pavel, who
reached a career high of No.13 on the ATP rankings in 2004. "The tennis clubs here
are very welcoming, and there are a lot of people interested in tennis. We hope to
make tennis even better here."
Members of The Dunes Tennis Club came out in large numbers to watch Pavel,
who battled Andre Agassi in New York in his last U.S. Open in 2006 in what John
McEnroe called the finest first-round match at a Grand Slam he had ever seen. Pavel

won three titles during his career, including the prestigious Masters Series event in
Montreal in 2001 over a field that included Agassi and former World No. s Lleyton
Hewitt and Marat Safin. In other words, this guy can play.
Pavel squared off under brilliant blue skies at The Dunes against Nicole Melichar,
who trains at the Pavel-Blackwood Academy and is ranked 844 on the WTA Tour.
Dunes fans cheered her as she blasted groundstrokes around the clay court and cre-
ated points of the highest caliber against Pavel.
This was wonderful," said Melichar, who is gearing up for the 2011 pro tour. "I like
this area a lot, it's gorgeous, and the people have been very friendly."
Pavel and Melichar invited several of the spectators to come out to the court to play
a few games of mixed doubles. "It was fantastic," said Dunes member Bob Scherer.
"Andrei is great and so is Nicole, it was nice to be out there with them."
The Pavel-Blackwood Tennis Academy will be running special boys and girls camps
as well as plenty of adult events. Pavel wants to discover the next Nicole Melichar on
Sanibel Island and develop the next generation of island tennis players.

PGA Tips
Why Should
You Play Golf?
by Matt Oakley, PGA Golf Professional
C consider the
following
,.benefits of
playing golf:
1. The
Peacefulness of a
Golf Course
Where else can
you go and enjoy
all of the things in
nature a golf course
can offer? You can
spot all kinds of
wildlife, such as alligators, bald eagles,
osprey, ducks and tropical birds of all spe-
cies. Nothing soothes the sprit more than
being outdoors.
2. Golf Builds Character
You will learn more about yourself
and others on a golf course than you
will at any other place or time. Handling
adversity shows you life lessons that are
invaluable.
3. Golf is a Game of a Lifetime


BEACh


You can play golf much later into life
than any other sport. Football players,
baseball players, athletes of all kinds, turn
to golf when their playing careers are
over. Arnold Palmer just turned 80 years
old this year and can still shoot around
par most of the time. I don't know of any
80-year-old nose tackles that can still play
football.
4. Golf can be Social or Individual
I love to play golf with my friends,
but have to admit a late afternoon on
the practice tee with a bucket of balls by
myself is more therapeutic to the soul
than anything.
5. Competition
This one is why I love golf the most.
I compete against the golf course, old
man par, myself and my buddies. If you
doubt it, what did it feel like the first time
you made a birdie, beat your dad or won
a few bucks off of that loudmouth at the
office?
6. Integrity
No referees, no umpire, just you and
your conscience
7. Exercise
America is the "fattest" country in the
world. Walking 18 holes carrying your
own bag burns more calories than jog-
ging three miles.

Will Power
Power Of Appointment Dangers
- by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified
Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney, CPA


. i

I " J


Normally
when one
has a revoca-
ble living trust, that
trust becomes irre-
vocable upon the
death of its settlor.
This makes sense,
since the settlor is
no longer alive to


amend the trust.
But there are situations where you
might want to allow a close loved one
the ability to change the trust provisions.
This is common between spouses. At
my death, my trust becomes irrevocable
- except I give my wife the power to
change the beneficiaries or how those
beneficiaries receive the trust assets.
Why would you want to do this? There
could be a long period of time - several
years or even decades - between the
death of the first spouse and the second
spouse. During that period of time a lot
can happen. What if one of the children
develops a drug or alcohol problem? You
could imagine different scenarios where
you would want to give your spouse dis-
cretion to change the trust and how it is
distributed.
But you usually don't want to give
total discretion. You wouldn't want your
spouse, for example, to direct the trust


assets away from your children towards a
new spouse that they married following
your death. So the power of appointment
may be limited to a certain class of ben-
eficiaries.
An interesting case was recently
decided on this very issue. In Timmons v.
Ingrahm, a decedent was survived by his
spouse and two children he had adopted
from a previous marriage. The surviving
spouse also had four children herself from
a previous marriage, none of whom were
adopted by the decedent.
In his will, the decedent created two
trusts, the family trust and the marital
trust. The marital trust provided that upon
the surviving spouse's death, the remain-
ing principal would be "poured over" into
the family trust to be distributed in accor-
dance with its terms. The family trust
provided that upon the surviving spouse's
death, the trust assets were to be divided
into as many equal shares as there are
children of the decedent. Here, the will
expressly defined the decedent's children
as to include his two adopted children
and the surviving spouse's four children
(even though the four children were step-
children and not legal descendants).
The family trust also allowed the sur-
viving spouse, who was also a co-trustee,
a limited power of appointment concern-
ing "all or any part of the principal of this


trust, free and clear of any trust to and
among my then living living descendants
in such proportions and subject to such
trust and conditions as she may direct.
This limited power of appointment may
be exercised by said wife even to the
point of completely exhausting the entire
corpus trust of this trust estate."
Based on this language the surviv-
ing spouse executed a limited power of
appointment that attempted to grant all
of the principal and income of the family
trust to her four children to the exclusion
of the decedent's two adopted children.
The two adopted children sued for
breach of fiduciary duty and account-
ing, challenging the attempt to disinherit
them. They argued that the surviving
spouse could only exercise her limited
power of appointment in favor of the
decedent's "lineal descendants" and that
the surviving spouse's four children did
not qualify as such.
After the parties filed cross motions
for summary judgment, the trial court
ruled in favor of the co-trustees, which
would have effectively disinherited the

rack light-
ing is used
primarily as
display lighting. It is
ideal for the places
that need continu-
ous sharp lighting
throughout the
room. It provides
excellent lighting
and can be used to


highlight clothes in a shop, paintings in
an art gallery or displays of art at home.
There are a large number of scenarios
in which track lighting would be used
which will be highlighted here in the
article.
Museums benefit from track lighting.
With the ability to highlight various focal
points it can be the ideal lighting device.

decedent's two adopted children. They
appealed.
In reversing the trial court's decision,
the appellate court held that the term
"lineal descendants" did not apply to the
surviving spouse's four children - who
were stepchildren of the decedent. The
appellate court also looked at the dece-
dent's intent and did not find that he
intended to give the surviving spouse
the power to disinherit his two children
in favor of her four children. Therefore,
the appellate court ruled that the surviv-
ing spouse's exercise of the power of
appointment was invalid.
Despite the ruling, this case should
serve as a warning that powers of
appointment pose dangers to your intent.
While, generally speaking, such pow-
ers serve a useful purpose to allow an
otherwise irrevocable trust the ability to
"change with the times" who you give
a power to and what conditions you
impose should be carefully considered.

Track lighting can be run in any direction
or used in any combination so even very
odd-shaped rooms can use it. Visitors to
the museum then get constant and sharp
lighting throughout their journey and
are able to view the displays, pictures or
other props being used.
Art galleries benefit from track lighting
too for this reason. The lighting is very
effective for each and every painting or
picture displayed on the walls. Each paint-
ing it needs its very own light (or several
depending on its size) and track lighting
enables just that.
Retail outlets often rely on track light-
ing. Lighting can actually influence
whether a person buys something or
even how much they spend. For this rea-
son it is very important that it's just right.
Track lighting is often used because it is
so versatile. It can be set up in a way that
not only highlights the products and items
on sale in a shop but also provides an

Hidden Treasures
Why Do We Wear
Engagement
Rings?
by Dan Schuyler
and Karen Bell

month, Prince
SWilliam
S gave fiancee Kate
Middleton the
engagement ring
that belonged to
his late mother,
Princess Diana.
The ring is an
18-carat oval blue sapphire surrounded
by 14 brilliant-cut diamonds and set
in 18-carat white gold. The ring was
designed by Garrard Jewelers, the
longtime official crown jeweler for the
British monarchy.
Such focus on one famous ring begs
the question, why do we wear engage-
ment rings at all?
An engagement ring represents a
promise to spend a life together and
conjures up images of romance and love.


It is also an enduring symbol that can be
passed down from generation to genera-
tion. The history of the engagement ring
goes back several centuries.
The Romans were the first to wear
engagement rings. They called them truth
or betrothal rings, and they were worn on
the third finger of the left hand. This is
thanks to an Egyptian belief that the veins
from the third finger on the left hand lead
directly to the heart.
In the Middle Ages, an engagement
ring was called a "bond" or Gimmel ring.
Those who could afford to do so would
add colorful stones such as emeralds
and sapphires to the ring. Because the
diamond is the hardest known stone, it
came to represent enduring and eternal
love and was afforded only by the very
wealthy. Those who could not afford
colored stones would give rings in the
form of two clasped hands. This ring was
called the faith or Fedde ring.
Thanks to a discovery of diamonds
in Brazil, diamonds were more readily
available during the 18th century. It was
at this point that engagement rings with
more than one diamond became the
custom.
In 1870, the discovery of diamonds in
the Kimberly diamond region of South
continued on page 22B

Wind
Re-Inspections
Revisited
by Marge Meek
after rolling
out the wind
mitigation re-
inspection program
without procedures
S on what would hap-
pen with discrep-
ancies, Citizens is
getting in control of
the process. It is an
evolving process,
but at least it can be understood.
If you have a new policy written,
whether because of a new purchase or
because you are changing agents or other
reasons, Citizens will re-inspect your
property, even though you may have
had a new mitigation form completed
recently. They have decided, in the first
90 days, they can go back to the origin
of the policy and make changes. The
window to get discrepancies cleared up
is so small, it is usually necessary to pay
that additional premium and when the
problems have been resolved, a refund
will be issued.
A couple areas have been standing out
in terms of losing mitigation credits. The
first has to do with hip roofs. The rules
now say if there is a gable or flat portion
that is over 10 percent of the perimeter,
the house cannot be rated as hip. Gables
over porches and windows, plus flat areas


over porches often cause this to happen.
This is a critical designation in mitigation
and you can lose valuable credits without
your hip roof credit. Flat roofs over patios
that are not part of the structural integrity
of the house are exempt.
Another area that causes credits to
be taken away is if there is no proof of
the impact glass or shutter specifications.
Before the re-inspector visits, find the
paperwork to show you have opening
protection. Along the same line, exterior
doors and garage doors also fall into this
burden of proof requirement.
Citizens' underwriting has been trained
in interpreting original inspection forms
against the re-inspection forms, thus
the number of credits being taken away
has diminished significantly. Rules have
changed, but mistakes are made by the
original inspectors and now by the re-
inspectors. The complete re-inspection
with pictures and a comparison against
the original mitigation form are available
and your agent has a copy. However,
until the Citizens underwriters finish their
audits and send a notice of credits being
removed, there is no need to take any
action.
You are the first line of defense against
changes to your mitigation form. The
best place to stop the discrepancies, or
at least understand them, is when the
re-inspection takes place. Have your
mitigation form with you and have the
re-inspector tell you where there is a dif-
ference.

Captiva insurance agent, who can be

Ten Unique
Gift Ideas
by Jeanie Tinch
t no other
Time in
recent years
S has "Home Sweet
Home" carried so
- i much meaning.
When contem-
plating what to give
your loved ones
i this holiday season,
consider things
intended to sweeten their lives at home.
There is an appropriate choice to fit even
the most discriminating person on your
list, at a myriad of prices.
For The "Grand" Child: Give your
child or grandchild a good start in life by
establishing a nurturing home environ-
ment. Any child would appreciate the gift
of a new personalized space, or accents
for his or her room.
For The Passionate Gardener: To
enhance a gardener's flower beds, think
about statues, fountains, planters and
more. And for showing off the gardener's
work indoors, there is a wide variety of
containers and display pieces. A vase
also makes a lovely gift. And the people
on your list need a variety of sizes to suit
different requirements. Whatever the
decorating style or degree of formality,
there is a vase, planter, or cache pot in
crystal, clay or ceramic to suit their per-
sonal tastes.


For The Hopeless Gardener: Consider
sending flowers, the kind that will last
forever. There is an abundant selection
of permanent flowers and greenery,
realistic orchids, sunflowers, hydrangeas,
and scented roses, as well as lush trees
and plants. Forever blooming flowers and
plants are perennial favorites. Think also
about the variety of planters, plant stands,
jardinieres and topiaries.
For The Avid Collectionist: It is nice
to decorate a home with reminders of a
favorite pastime, and for these enthusiasts
there is a plethora of products. Among
the unique options are painted tables,
chests, cabinets, boxes and lamps.
A smart accent table is sure to be a
most welcome gift. Designs such as nest-
ing, tray, box, or stacked box styles are
attractive as well as practical. Material
options include wicker, tortoise, lacquer,
glass, iron, wood, stone and leather.
Decorative boxes can be found in a
variety of sizes and styles. Among the
excellent choices are brass, wood, leather,
silver and wicker. The sole merit of a box
might be its intrinsic beauty or it could
house a precious treasure.
For The Consummate Reader: For
the readers in your life, remember they
need lamps as well as places to store
their books, magazines and newspapers.
Nobody ever has too many lamps, and
readers are especially grateful to you
for lighting up their lives. You can select
from a vast assortment of beautiful lamp
bases and shades. A crystal and brass
lamp would be suitable in any traditional
setting. Consider practical and attractive
home accents that will keep their current


reading material close at hand.
For The Thriving Artist: Painting is a
rewarding pastime, and nothing is more
appreciated by prolific artists than easels
to display their artwork. There is an
enormous assortment of styles and sizes
of display easels that stand on the floor,
hang on the wall, or sit on the table.
In addition, there are lovely framed
pictures of every subject matter in all sizes
to fit a particular need. Consider a color-
ful painting displayed on a tabletop easel,
a matted drawing for the bedroom wall,
an impressive oil painting for over the
mantel, or a picture for the kitchen.
For The Wine Connoisseur: Select an
attractive display piece to store and show
off a favorite drink. There are simple bot-
tle holders and servers, handsome wine
tables and stands, and elaborate cellars
and caddies.
For The Dog Lover: Don't forget your
best friend's best friend, who would love
pillows featuring the beloved animal, or a
personalized pet bed.
For The Person Who Has Everything:
Still having trouble deciding what to give
the desperately hard-to-please, or the
person who has everything? Give a home
decorating gift certificate. This solves your
gift-giving dilemma, as well as the deco-
rating challenges of the gift recipient.

Mobile Mammogram Returns
To Sanibel Recreation Center
he City of Sanibel Recreation Center will host the Radiology Regional
Center's Mobile Mammo Coach on Friday, December 10, from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m.
The Mobile Mammo Coach is a customized, mobile breast imaging clinic, providing
state-of-the-art full field digital mammography which will be analyzed by computer-
aided detection and read by local, board-certified radiologists, including fellowship-
trained women's imagers.
Radiology Regional Center is a contracted provider with most health insurance car-
riers and will file all claims on your behalf. Co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance pay-
ments are expected at the time of service. Please bring the name and address of your
primary care physician if applicable, your medical insurance card and a picture ID. If
you are self-insured, the discounted price of the mammography is $150.
Patient preparation for the imaging includes not using underarm deodorant, talcum
powder or cream as these can interfere with test results. If possible, wear a comfort-
able two-piece outfit that will allow you to wear a gown from the waist up.
For an appointment or if you have any questions about the test, call the Radiology
Regional Center at 936-2316.
According to estimates from the American Cancer Society, one in eight women
will be diagnosed with breast cancer. More importantly, with early detection the sur-
vival rate for an early diagnosed breast cancer at five years is better than 97 percent.
Mammography is one aspect of breast health, in addition to monthly self-exams and
annual physician exams.
The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Daily,
weekly, semi-annual and annual memberships are available. For more information call
the Sanibel Recreation Center at 472-0345 or visit www.mysanibel.com.0

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
by Constance
Clancy
Q: Can you give
me some sugges-
tions to manage my
; � lack of concentra-
y tion? I seem to be
all over the place
and don't get any-
S thing accomplished.
A: With our
24/7 access to cell
phone, e-mails and Internet, it seems like
technology has taken its toll on trying to
do it all, and losing focus is the culprit.
All of these things can be distractions to
things you are working on. The average
person gets 30 faxes/day, and over 75
e-mails, not to mention all the phone
messages.
Instead of checking e-mails throughout
the day/evening, set up designated times
and stick to it so you are not addicted.
You don't have to answer every e-mail
and phone message immediately. Take
time out throughout the day to stretch
and breathe so you are more in the pres-

ent moment rather than out in the future.
Check to see if you are multi-tasking.
You might think that is the answer, but
research shows that you actually lose time
when you shift from one task to another.
When possible, devote your energy to
one task at a time. If you find that you
have nagging thoughts, it may be helpful
to write them down instead of allowing
them to buzz around in your brain. Once
these thoughts are down on paper, you
may be better able to let them go.
If you are under too much stress,
notice what is going on in your body as it
takes a noticeable toll. Learn stress reduc-
tion techniques such as meditation.
Research shows that if you take an
eight-week meditation course, your ability
to improve your concentration increases
immediately.
These techniques will take time to
absorb, but if you begin and gradually
increase them, you will notice that you
will be more centered and relaxed. Also,
be sure to get plenty of exercise and
sleep.

health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public
speaker You may email Dr Connie at

Track Lighting
overall funky effect. If the shop looks the
part then people are more likely to buy.
It really is as simple as that. The other
very attractive point is it easily rearranged
along the track.
It also works very well in the home.
With many people collecting art these
days, it is common to want to highlight
that beautiful piece. Again the way to go
is track lighting.
There are many reasons to use track
lighting as these examples show. Most
public buildings can benefit too and it
is especially good in places with very
high ceilings where ceiling lighting just
won't work. It can light paths, be used to
highlight displays or products and is very
versatile and easy to fit. When looking for
track lighting for home or business, look
around to see what others have done and
then call your friendly electrical contrac-
tor. Most have a great deal of experience
with this type of lighting and will give you
insight to lead you to the light.
Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air condi-
tioning contractor He also owns, with
his brother Todd, an electrical busi-
ness on Sanibel. He can be reached at

Engagement Rings
Africa made diamonds
even more available. The -
custom of adding gem-
stones or birthstones to
engagement rings became
fashionable.
In 1947, the launch
of the familiar Diamonds
are Forever campaign
encouraged families to Dazzling diamond rings vby Precision Set
keep their diamond rings
and consider them heirlooms, thus creating a demand for new diamonds as these old
diamonds didn't enter the market. The song, Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend, as
sung by Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, helped to make the diamond
seem all the more glamorous. From this point on, the engagement ring became not
only an enduring symbol of love, but a fashion statement.

24B ISLAND SUN -DECEMBER 3, 2010


Im Cody and I was found as a stray in Cape Coral. I'm a young pup but very smart.
The shelter staff has been teaching me lots of things and I pick up everything very
quickly. I will work for treats any time. I can climb on the shelter's new agility equip-
ment even though three of my four feet are a little deformed. I was probably born that
way but it doesn't hold me back one bit. I'll make a great pet for a great family. My
adoption fee is $50.
They call me Mr. Lucky, a black and white tuxedo cat. With over 4,000 stray cats
entering Animal Services' shelter each year, it's not surprising that that's what hap-
pened to me. I was a sick baby so I spent several weeks in a wonderful foster home
until I was better. My foster mom gives me high marks in all categories. Of course I'm
playful and loving but I also give hugs by putting my paws around you when you pick
me up. I get along well with other cats, and my coat is silky and beautiful. My adoption
fee is $50.
Throughout December, anyone adopting a pet is eligible for a weekly prize drawing.
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
animal's ID number The website updates every hour so you will be able to see if
these or any other pets are still available.
The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday
through Saturday. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next
to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, off Six Mile Cypress Parkway.
All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies
vaccination and county license if three months or older, flea treatment, worming,

The adoption package is valued at
$500.~

Get Pets Home
4 The Holidays
L ee County Domestic Animal
Services (LCDAS) will join more
han 3,500 pet shelters and adop-
tion centers across the U.S., Canada,
Mexico, and Puerto Rico during Home
4 the Holidays 2010, a national event
organized to raise awareness of the
joys of owning shelter-adopted pets.
Organizers hope to match more than
1.5 million dogs, cats, puppies, and
kittens with loving, adoptive families.
LCDAS launched its local campaign on
December 1 and by December 31


hopes to place 300 pets from its facility
into life-long homes.
In the past some shelters have actually
gone so far as to discourage families from
adopting pets during the holidays. This
did not stop them from getting new pets.
It just took away the adoption option and
forced them to support the puppy mill
industry. As always, the shelter works
to match the needs of the pets with the
desires of the families.
The adoption fee for all pets includes
spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vac-
cinations, flea treatment, worming, heart-
worm test for dogs six months or older,
feline aids and leukemia test for cats, a
county license for pets three months or
older, training DVD, behavior hotline,
microchip pet ID, Hill's Science Diet pet
food, and 10-day health guarantee. The
total adoption package is valued at more
than $500.
Each week during December adopters
also will be entered for a prize drawing.
With all that offered with each adoption,


there is no better time to add a new com-
panion to your family.
Adoption hours at Lee County
Domestic Animal Services are 11:30
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through
Saturday. For more information call 533-
7387 (LEE-PETS). Pictures of pets avail-
able for adoption can be viewed online
at www.LeeLostPets.com. The website
updates hourly.
More information about the Animal
Care Trust Fund (ACTF) is also available
at www.LeeLostPets.com. Please remem-
ber the ACTF for your tax-deductible
year-end giving. This fund assisted over
1,200 pets during 2009 requiring veteri-
nary care for illness or injury. Donations
can be made online or mailed to: Animal
Care Trust Fund, c/o Lee County
