Canadian Canoer Makes
Sanibel Stop On Amazon Journey
by Anne Mitchell .
ike one of the islands' migrating birds passing through to other places, Bill
Shaw arrived on Sanibel December 5. But instead of traveling by air, Shaw
came by motorized canoe, racing to beat a cold front.
His journey from Montreal, Canada began August 30. It doesn't end on Sanibel,
though he alighted here for a few days of R&R and a chance to meet up with an old
friend for some birdwatching. Next stop is Brownsville, Texas at the end of the intra-
coastal waterway, which he has followed for the last three and a half months.
Eventually, he wants to haul up in Peru and work as an eco-tour guide on the
Amazon River. Shaw took a year off from his job as a marine chemist for his adven-
ture, leaving behind his wife Suz and three grown children in Nova Scotia. Why the
Amazon? "It has the maximum diversity of life on this planet," he said.
His green Nor West Labrador canoe was specially designed for the voyage and built
in Quebec. It is 22 feet long with a square stern and is powered by a 40 hp Evinrude
outboard motor. It's six feet wide, about twice the normal width of a canoe, allowing
for sleeping and storage space and a capacity for 92 gallons of fuel, which takes him
about 400 nautical miles.

Get Ready For
The 11th Annual

Sanibel-Captiva Chapter of the
National Polar Bear Club will
hold its 11th annual meeting at "the

Parking for 89 cars is available at the

Adult bears (those who took the plunge in
previous years). Following the anthem the
Polar Bears will enter the icy gulf waters
backwards, facing the crowd of support-
ers, on-lookers, tourists, and Mice (those
who wished they had the courage to join
in).
Following various bear-frolicking activi-
ties in the water and the traditional Polar
Bear group huddle/hug (a body-warming
activity), all participants will receive a free
membership card and a certificate suit-
able for framing. There will also be an
opportunity to sip from the giant Polar
Bear champagne glass, have your picture
taken in the infamous shell pith helmet
and engage in story telling about your
heroic experience with fellow Polar Bears
from around the world.
All are welcome and encouraged to


attend. Remember to wear your bathing
suit and bring a towel. Chairs and coolers
are optional.
Come join your friends, family, neigh-
bors, tourists, politicians and other island

Bailey Homestead Campaign
Receives $500,000 Gift To Name Trail


Richard Shipley, second from left, pledges $500,000 to SCCF's Bill Fenniman, left, Erick
Lindblad and Paul Roth right
Richard C. Shipley, president of the Shipley Foundation, gave Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation an early Christmas present for its $5.3 million fun-
draising campaign to purchase the 28.3-acre Bailey Family Homestead on
Periwinkle Way. At the December 6 meeting of the campaign committee, on which
Shipley serves, he announced his intention to make an outright gift of $500,000,
the largest single gift received since the campaign was announced on October 28.
"The preservation of the historic Bailey Homestead is, for me, the most important
event in SCCF's 43-year history of land acquisition," said Shipley. "I hope that making
this gift public will encourage other islanders to support this effort. The June deadline
comes quickly. The sheer size of the goal demands that as many people as possible
donate as generously as they can."
The Shipley Foundation's gift brings the total outright and pledged campaign con-
tributions to $1.5 million. In recognition of the pledged gift, SCCF intends to create a
nature trail through the property and name it the Shipley Trail.


ISLAND SUN - DECEMBER 17, 2010 5
"We are so grateful to Richard and the Shipley Foundation for this extraordinary
gift," said SCCF Executive Director Erick Lindblad. "The trail through the upland is
one of the elements that most excites folks when we talk about preserving the Bailey
Homestead."
SCCF is pursuing the best way to cut a nature trail closer to the buildings on the
Periwinkle side of the property. 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 connect 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.
The 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.
* 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.
Tax-deductible contributions to the campaign can be made online at www.sccf.org
or by calling Erick Lindblad at 427-2329 or Cheryl Giattini at 395 2768.0

City Of Sanibel
Receives United
Way Award
The City of Sanibel received an
award from the United Way for
its support of the 2009-2010
United Way Campaign. The award was
presented by United Way volunteer Tom
Uhler at a recent city council meeting.


The City of Sanibel raised over $6,000
of a total of $230,000 that was contrib-
uted by Sanibel and Captiva businesses
and residents to the 2009-2010 United
Way Campaign.
"Sanibel employees made a real differ-
ence when it was greatly needed. Their
generous support meant that the 72
United Way partner agencies will help
more people. Their contributions also
partially support FISH of Sanibel and the
Sanibel United Way House," said Uhler.

Tom Uhler, Jim Jordan, Frances Slane, Karen Gudella, Gates Castle, Dana Raco, Judie
Zimomra, Holly Downing. Other participants not pictured: James Evans, Jim Isom, John
Juzkiw, Sandra McDougall and Bill Tomlinson.


United Way Campaign is under way and
is being conducted by a volunteer com-
mittee of Sanibel and Captiva residents
including: Tony Lapi, Ann Moran, Bob
Wigley, Debbie and Dick Riley, Linda and
Tom Uhler, and Judie Zimomra.
Since the inception of United Way
in 1957, $96 million has been raised in
the community. All money raised in the
United Way campaign stays in the local
community to help support the local
human service network. United Way
partner agencies and initiatives like FISH
of Sanibel, Alvin A Dubin Alzheimer's
Resource Center, Children's Advocacy
Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters, LARC,
and United Way 211 serve a diverse


range of needs in the community, such
as nurturing children and youth, strength-
ening families, meeting critical needs in
helping the elderly and disabled live inde-
pendently, and empowering communities
by bringing health and human services to
neighborhoods.
In addition to raising funds for human
service organizations in the community,
the United Way promotes partnerships
and collaborations among agencies and
initiatives, helping them to work together,
focusing on issues and solutions that con-
tinue to improve lives.#

OBITUARY
CHARLES G."CHUCK" FARNUM
C harles G."Chuck" Farnum, 93,
a long-time resident of Sanibel
Island, died peacefully December
8 at Shell Point Village. A memorial
service will be held at 4 p.m. December
18 at the Sanibel Congregational United
Church of Christ, 2050 Periwinkle Way,
Sanibel.
Born in 1917 in Peoria, Illinois, Chuck
graduated cum laude from Dartmouth
College in 1939. He continued his medi-
cal education at Northwestern Medical
School, where he received his doctor of
medicine degree in 1944. He completed
his internship at Presbyterian Hospital in
Chicago in 1945.
Dr. Farnum served as a Captain in the
United States Army Medical Corps until
1947.
After his military service, Dr. Farnum
practiced internal medicine in Peoria,
Illinois until 1974. In addition to his active
practice, he worked hard to promote and
support the medical community in Peoria.
From 1974 until 1985 he served as med-
ical director and president of the medi-
cal staff at Methodist Medical Center of
Illinois in Peoria. He was a past president
of the Peoria County Medical Society
and a diplomat of the National Board of
Medical Examiners. He was a fellow of


the American College of Physicians and
a diplomat of the American Board of
Internal Medicine.
Dr. Farnum was also very active
in his community, serving on several
boards, including the Peoria City Health
Department, the YMCA, the Community
Chest and Council, the First Federal
Savings and Loan, and the St. Francis
Community Clinic. He served on the
governing bodies of the Peoria-Tazewell
Heart Association, the local chapter of
the American Cancer Society, the Peoria
Court Counselor Program, and the Mid
State Foundation for Medical Care.
In 1988 Dr. Farnum moved to Sanibel
where he continued his community
involvement. He served as president of
the Sanibel Community Association in
1995 and 1996 and as chairman of
the Sanibel Shell Fair in 1995. He was
a lifetime member of the Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation, Clinic for the
Rehabilitation of Wildlife, BIG ARTS, and
the Historical Society.
Dr. Farnum was a lover of the north
woods, especially Ontario's Quetico
Provincial Park. Over his lifetime he
made 53 trips canoeing through the
wilderness of the Quetico, sharing his
love of nature with several generations
of family and friends who continue in his
footsteps to this day. He kept a canoe on
Sanibel and made frequent trips down the
Sanibel River.


The main focus of Chuck's life was his
wife of 64 years, Betty, and his children,
Charlie, Jim, Bill, and Patty. He was a
devoted husband, happily in love with his
wife until she passed away in 2007. He
was very proud of all his children and was
much beloved by them and their families.
His presence will be greatly missed.
Chuck had a joyful spirit and a great
sense of humor. He was a gentle man
with a quick smile and encouraging word
for everyone he met. He was generous
with his time and resources, always help-
ing whenever he saw a need. Random
acts of kindness were a way of life for
Chuck. He did much to make the world a
friendlier and more gracious place.
Chuck Farnum was predeceased by
his lifelong devoted wife, Betty, and two
sons, Bill and Charlie Farnum. He is sur-
vived by his son, Jim, daughter, Pat Beal,
daughters-in-law Margee Cullinan and
Anne Farnum, son-in-law Mike Beal, nine
grandchildren, and three great grandchil-
dren. Chuck also had countless friends
who thought of themselves as family.
Donations may be sent to the Bailey-
Matthews Shell Museum, 3075 Sanibel-
Captiva Road, Sanibel, FL 33957; or the
Sanibel Congregational United Church of
Christ, 20050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel,

IN MEMORIAL
LOIS MEDINETS
On an especially sad note, Bat
Yam-Temple of the Islands
announces that Past President
Lois Medinets died on Wednesday,
December 8, after a short illness.
Lois was born and raised in
Philadelphia. Her mother was one of the
first female attorneys in Philadelphia, a
fact of which Lois was very proud. Lois
herself was a very erudite woman. She
and her husband had four children and
were grandparents to eight.
Lois was a long-time resident of
Sanibel and a member of Bat Yam since
its inception 20 years ago. She was
active from the beginning, participating in
many temple activities and study groups.
Lois also volunteered in the office at BIG
ARTS and assisted George Kaplan, the
editor of their newsletter at the time, The
Articulator.
When she became president of Bat
Yam in 1998, she brought with her, her
charm and graciousness. She led the con-
gregation from strength to strength. May
her memory remain a blessing.4

Fred Astaire Dance School pros Jessica, left, and Ashley, right, lead the Kiwanis members

submitted by Eric Pfeifer
What do coffee, bacon, 80 men and two left feet have in common? That is
what we had last week at our weekly breakfast meeting at The Dunes.
Actually, to entice the brothers at Kiwanis to make a donation to the
Community House, Eric Pfeifer showed a small preview of his dance routine to be per-
formed at Dancing With The Island Stars on January 22. Pfeifer's dancing instructors
got the men on their feet and taught them the basic Samba steps which will be used
during Pfeifer's routine. Pfeifer has worked extremely hard learning how to move and
keep up with his dance instructors, Jessica and Ashley from the Fred Astaire Dance
Studios in Fort Myers.
Comments afterwards included, "Eric, why do you get two dance partners?" "How
can we sign up for next year?" "Does your wife know about this?" and "How come

tickets for the dress rehearsal on January 21 available at the Community House. The
event will also be simulcast on televisions at several of the local restaurants on the
22nd. Check out the Sanibel Community Association Facebook page for more details.
Please can support the Community House by voting for their favorite dancer.
Kiwanians are always proud during the holiday season to hand out gifts at the
Annual Santa Run. If anyone has a special gift they would like to have delivered by a
real Santa, deliver them to the fire station on Palm Ridge Road by December 23. The
Kiwanians will be out all night on their sleighs with their reindeer delivering gifts to
children who weren't naughty this year.
Also, Tom Louwers is collecting money for Friends Who Care to provide gifts for
needy families who may not be able to provide Christmas gifts for their own families.
Kiwanis meets every Tuesday morning at the Dunes Golf and Country Club for
breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Feel free to join in for a great meal and some camaraderie.A

River Meets The Sea Cruise
he newest cooperative endeavor between Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation (SCCF) and Captiva Cruises is a hands-on cruise to explore the
mouth of the Caloosahatchee and its estuary. Passengers will conduct their
own water sampling while traveling through the extraordinary back bay waters. The
next cruise is at 9:30 a.m. Friday, December 17.
SCCF's River Estuary Coastal Observing Network (RECON) program, which tracks
key water quality parameters from Lake Okeechobee to the Gulf of Mexico, is located
nearby. The guide will discuss the linkage to the greater Everglades ecosystem, which
includes the entire watershed from Orlando to Florida Bay and everything in between.
This cruise will be led by Kristie Anders, SCCF education director, and Richard
Finkel, Captiva Cruises' environmental educator. Proceeds from these cruises will help
support SCCF's Education Fund.
The cruise departs from Sanibel Harbor Marriott Resort & Spa at Punta Rassa.

CROW Case Of The Week:
Marsh Rabbit
by Brian Johnson
O n November
30 long-
, f time island
Koch was out on
his porch when he
heard the sound
of a small wild ani-
mal. "Then my cat
came trotting up the
the steps carrying
something in his mouth, holding it like a
kitten," he said. "Then he turned around
and went down the steps and laid it on
the ground."
Koch wasn't sure what it was, but
hustled down his steps to find out. There
he saw a marsh rabbit struggling to get
up and away, but not quite able to do so.
Koch placed the rabbit in a bucket and
bicycled him to CROW.
"I like all the native grey bunnies and
felt crummy about our cat catching him,"
he said.
The rabbit was quickly admitted at
CROW.
"This was a juvenile who was out on
his own and not very experienced in the
ways of the world," said Dr. Stephanie
French. "He was very dull on arrival and
had trouble standing up. There was a
bloody laceration behind his ears, dirt in
his eyes and he had a head tilt."
CROW staff gave him pain medica-
tion, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and

A Rescue Remedy consisting of Bach
flowers. Puncture wounds inflicted by cats
can easily be fatal to small animals due to
the high level of bacteria present in the
feline mouth.
"We were not sure how he was going
to do," said Dr. Stephanie.
The neurological disturbance was likely
caused by swelling around the neck and


spine from the trauma of being in the
cat's mouth.
Staff did not expect the 280-gram
rabbit to eat on his first night, yet when
they returned in the morning he had
consumed all of his "special bunny greens
and monkey biscuit with banana baby
food," said Dr. Stephanie.
The rabbit lived in a small, private

carrier for several days before being trans-
ferred to a hutch in the Rabbit Room.
Staff opted to keep him indoors as a
cold snap had just hit the islands.
The rabbit was able to shake off his
encounter with the cat very quickly. He
continued to eat well and his neurological
deficits resolved in short order.
On December 9 CROW released the
lucky fellow back to the wild. Cats may
not be the only ones who have nine lives.

20 ISLAND SUN - DECEMBER 17, 2010

The Perils Of
Pea Soup Fog
And Low Tide
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
W ith yet
another
cold front
approaching as I
- j write this, it's going
*, to get bitterly cold
:- . 3 for another few
days yet again. This
winter our cold
fronts have started
earlier than ever. Let's all keep our fin-
gers crossed that we don't end up with
another record-setting winter like last
year.
Last year was one of the worst win-
ters I can remember after living here
30 years. Not only because of the cold,
windy weather and cold water fish kills
but also because of the amount of busi-
ness local fishing guides lost due to
the extreme cold. Not only do fishing
guides suffer with bad winters but so do


all the marinas, tackle stores and just
about every aspect of our tourism-driven
economy. After the big oil scare and the
slower than usual season of last year, we
all really need a good season.
Winter fishing is generally some of
the fastest action of the year and one of
the busiest times for guides. Though I
only got out a few times due to the bad
weather, fishing was on fire. During back-
to-back morning trips we caught as many
redfish as you could ask for. Most of them
were on the small side but talk about non-
stop action. Fishing with three clients one
day we had at least seven triple hook-ups
during a four-hour trip.
Sheepshead and flounder were also
biting well for my clients looking for a
fresh fish dinner after their charter.
Taking a charter out in the dense fog
one morning last week, I had a pretty
embarrassing experience. After making a
five-mile plus run in near white-out condi-
tions to a spot that I knew to be loaded
with fish, I simply misjudged a shallow
mud flat. I never saw it in the pea soup-
like fog.
After being in and out of this chan-
nel hundreds of times I was sure I could
almost do it with my eyes closed. Well,
I couldn't. Even with a GPS chart plot-

Finally, after 50 rat reds, a 25-inch keeper
redfish


ter, in the dense fog I missed the narrow
little natural channel by about 20 yards.
Usually it would not be a problem but on
the dead low tide we were hard aground.
Having to have your clients help you
push the boat off a mud bar is never a
good way to start a trip.
After about 15 minutes in the cold
water we managed to push the boat
far enough that she would float again.
Luckily, after finally making it to the fish-
ing hole, the fish were there. I joked with
my clients while blushing that I like to call
this a "combo shelling/fishing trip." That
day the fog did not burn off until almost
1 p.m. After cleaning the day's catch and
dropping off my charter I went back up
to where we had run aground and put a
trail on my GPS so it would never hap-
pen again - well at least not on that mud
bar.
If anyone who runs a boat and fishes
regularly in Pine Island Sound tells you
they have never run aground they are
not telling you the whole truth, or they
never leave the Intracoastal. It happens to
everyone.
What is the perfect Christmas gift for
the angler in your life? This year there
are lots of new items out that would
make that perfect gift. The first one that
comes to mind is a one of the new series
of Penn spinning reels that came out in
the last year or so, specifically the Penn
Conquer. These reels are made for the
new braided lines and seem virtually bul-
letproof. They come in a variety of sizes
but the smaller models look just about the
perfect size for winter time shrimp fish-
ing. These high quality reels run around
$200.

Squitiere (SCSPS), Pierce Hobbs, Isaac Bender, Nicholas Atkinson, Grant Reel, Corey
Pethers, Sarah Adler
Each year the Sanibel Sail & Power Squadron members conduct a nine-week
Safe Boating Class for the Sanibel sixth graders. The objectives of the class
are to teach students safe boating habits, to educate them about Florida boat-
ing laws and rules of the road, and to train them in how to make emergency calls
to the U.S. Coast Guard.
Marti Squitieri of the SCSPS, with the guidance of Peggy Drennan, Sanibel Middle
School teacher, combine efforts to teach the students a variety of topics which include
boat types, preparation for a trip on the water, aids to navigation, knot tying, safety
devices, types of life jackets, anchoring, using VHF radio, and using a global position-
ing system (GPS). During class students are grouped into boat crews and each crew
can earn points through a variety of activities and quizzes. Drills include locating and
putting on life jackets in a timely manner and reporting an emergency situation to the
U.S. Coast Guard.

The winning crews earn a ride on the Sanibel Fire Department Boat.
Squitieri said, "Seventy-five percent of boating accidents are caused by human error.
It's important for students to learn and practice safe boating techniques when they are
on the water."2K

ISLAND SUN - DECEMBER 17, 2010 25


Sanibel Sea School Is Truly Home
For The Holidays In Its Own Building
Sanibel Sea School tied the knot on an agreement to buy the building at 414
Lagoon Drive that it has occupied since it was founded in 2006. The build-
ing, which legend says began its life on Sanibel as army signal corps barracks
during WWII, was later moved to the present location. It features Dade County
pine floors, rustic paneling, surfboards hanging in the rafters and aquaria lining the
walls. "As most folks know, we really wrestled with what was right for us and right
for Sanibel for a long time. And we feel that this is where we're supposed to be.
It's not a big land deal and it's not a state-of-the-art new facility, but it's home to us
and to hundreds of kids on Sanibel and we have decided that we can do more with
less," said Executive Director Dr. Bruce Neill.
"We can stay in this place that has come to mean Sanibel Sea School to us and we
can, with a little elbow grease and ingenuity, make it better suited to our programs. We
also think this really maximizes our donors' investment and their faith in us in this new
economic world we're all in. We've been working on this for some time. We're going
to be very smart in our deployment of the funds we receive," said Dr. Neill.
Sanibel Sea School has grown over the years with a robust summer camp and holi-
day camp, programs with adults and teens, as well as scholarship programs for kids
who would not otherwise be able to afford Sanibel Sea School. One such program,
the PACE at Sanibel Sea School program, has been providing marine science educa-
tion for at-risk teenage girls for four years. "I realized the other day," said Dr. Neill,
"that we have been the longest consistent presence to these PACE girls. We started
working with them right after they opened. And we have seen graduates go out into
the world to overcome the gravity of their lives. It's profoundly fulfilling."
As Gail Markham, chair of the Lee PACE Board of Directors says, "I look at the
partnership between Sanibel Sea School and PACE and I believe this is the way it
should be. This is what we all envision when we invest our time and resources to grow
nonprofit institutions like these two. Together, they are making a big difference in the
lives of young people."
With the Lagoon Drive real estate purchase, Sanibel Sea School has a permanent
home on the east end of Sanibel to be the hub of its mission to create a world where
people understand, value and take care of the ocean. And that is a fitting solution for
Maureen McClintock who previously owned the building. "My parents loved this build-
ing. It was built with a sense of purpose. I always felt an obligation to make certain it
had a rightful owner who would continue to give it meaning. I could not be happier at
this moment. Sanibel Sea School's mission is exactly the future my parents would have

Sanibel Sea School students in front of the new building
wanted for this place."
So, Sanibel Sea School is nestling into 414 Lagoon Drive for the holidays and
forever. And that means there will be lots of joy and crazy ideas on the east end of
Sanibel for years to come. If you've been to Bailey's Grocery Store lately, you've seen
the bins for Sanibel Sea School collecting plastic bottles with caps. During Camp
Calypso in the next few weeks, campers will be building a vessel made out of these
bottles and launching it into the brine! And so, begins a season of education about
plastics in the ocean. If the plastic Calypso sinks, it's just a short walk to Sanibel Sea
School's new old home on Lagoon Drive, to tow the sodden recyclables to shore.
"We really want to thank everyone for supporting Sanibel Sea School in the past,
present and future. We had over a hundred letters of support," said co-founder Evelyn
Neill. "This is a small building but a huge step. I am constantly reminded of how mean-
ingful this simple building is for many kids. I am very proud that we have a permanent
home on Sanibel now. It's an excellent finish to an excellent year." Sanibel Sea School
is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. If you would like to find out more, call 472-8585 or visit sani-

tificate of course completion as required for some boaters in Florida and also required

1165.
Boating law seems to be moving in the direction of more boating education require-
ments. One series of courses leads to a certificate for inland waters, a second for coast-
al waters, a third for off-coastal waters, and a fourth for out of sight of land.
All these courses keep your boat (and you) safe, your mind sharp, and give you a
chance to meet some very nice boaters who are also taking a course.
If you have trouble contacting the instructor, getting information, or registering for
the course, contact Ralph Sloan at 646-522-6704.0

Plant Smart
Southern Beeblossom
by Gerri Reaves
S southern beeblossom |4
(Gaura angustifolia)
is a perennial native
wildflower that blooms
in South Florida almost
all year, from late winter
until late fall.
This member of the
evening primrose family is
also called morning honey-
suckle. Growing through-
out most of Florida, its -
wild habitat includes pine- ti
lands, dry fields, roadsides,
and coastal dunes
The tubular white flow- 1
ers open in the evening,
timed perfectly for the
guara sphinx moths that
seek them out and hover
over them. The flowers
fade to pink the next day.
About an inch across,
they appear in branching
clusters and have four pet-
als, four sepals and eight
stamens.
The very narrow lance-
like leaves, frequently
bunched toward the top
of the stalks, are the larval Southern beeblossom's white flowers open in the evening,
food for the guara sphinx fading to pink the next day
moth.

Store Hours Every Day - 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.


Southern beeblossom can be found through most of Florida in pinelands and other dry or
sandy habitats like this South Fort Myers field photos by Gerri Reaves
The nut-like mature fruit is unusual in that it does not split open.
If you're lucky enough to have southern beeblossom volunteer in your yard, con-
sider letting this pretty maintenance-free wildflower flourish. It will offer up white-pink
flowers for the favor of a dry, sunny, or sandy spot.
This herb's medicinal uses include pain and inflammation relief.

Artists Craft Sailor's Valentines
And Mirrors For Historical Museum
Jim and Rose Prestigiacomo, featured artists at the Sanibel Historical Museum
and Village Gift Shop, now live in Angleton, Texas, near the Gulf Coast, but
were land-locked for much of their working lives. Jim was a civil engineer and
Rose dabbled in arts and crafts. Since Jim's retirement, the couple's interests and
activities now center on Galveston Bay where Rose collects the shells she uses to
create and fashion her exquisite Sailor's Valentines. Jim built their retirement home
in Angleton, just south of Houston. During the process, he acquired a shop filled
with wood working tools and machines. With Jim's love of wood and Rose's love of
shells, the husband and wife for med a partnership to create the one-of-a-kind min-
iature Sailor's Valentines that are sold exclusively at the museum's gift shop in the
Old Bailey Store.
"I've been fascinated with seashells from the time I was old enough to go beach-
combing with my father near our home on Bolivar Peninsula," said Rose. "When I first
spotted a Sailor's Valentine in a shop on Sanibel during a vacation, I knew immediately
that I wanted to make my own one day, which I did in 2002." Jim made a simple
octagonal box for Rose's first Sailor's Valentine. Rose has continued to refine her shell
art, drawing inspiration from the geometric patter ns used in the shell valentines sold to
sailors passing through Barbados in the 19th century and the more or nate floral pat-
terns being created by contemporary artists.
In 2009, Rose had the opportunity to attend and enter the prestigious Sanibel Shell
Show, which attracts the best contemporary shell artists in the world. Both of Rose's
entries earned ribbons in their respective professional categories.

Monday Night Movie
Me And
Orson Welles
Sby Di Saggau
he Monday
Night Movie
SDecember 20
Sis about a legend
in the making. Me
S , and Orson Welles
captures the young
Welles as he was
about to set New
S York Theater ablaze
with his adapta-
tion of Julius Ceasar. Playing Welles
is British actor Christian McKay. He
made Welles a personal obsession, read-
ing the many biographies and critical
studies of the man. As a result, he was
fully prepared to play the lean, hungry,
young hero of 1930s New York theater.
Director Richard Linklater said, "McKay
knew, chapter and verse, what Welles
was about in those heady early days. He
didn't just look and sound like him. He
brought himself to Orson Welles, the
outsize personality, the sheer bigness,
the storytelling charmer, the confidence.
McKay took on the swagger of the
already-famous-at-22 Welles.
Critics say one good reason to see the
movie is McKay's performance. He does
an altogether uncanny impersonation of
Welles, the debonair egomaniac, who cut
a swath through the Broadway world of
stunned producers and leggy chorus girls.
McKay gets that melting-butter voice to
a T, and he makes the energy of Welles'
genius contagious.
The film creates a tale of youthful
ambition, spurting hope, the seductions
and cruelties of the creative process.
Based in real theatrical history, Me and
Orson Welles is a romantic coming-of-
age story about a teenage actor, played
by Zac Efron, who lucks into a role in
Julius Ceasar as it's being re-imagined by
Welles, the brilliant and impetuous young
director. The action takes place in 1937


at his newly founded Mercury Theater in
New York.
Roger Ebert wrote, "Me and Orson
Welles is one of the best movies about
the theater I've ever seen, and one of the
few to relish the resentment so many of
Welles' collaborators felt for the Great
Man. The film is steeped in theater lore.
The impossible hours, the rehearsals, the
gossip, the intrigue, the hazards of stage
trap doors, the quirks of personalities, the
egos, the imbalance of a star surrounded
entirely by supporting actors - supporting
on stage and in life."
The film is not only entertaining but
an invaluable companion to the life and
career of Welles. Following the movie I
hope you will join me for a discussion
on the lanai where refreshments will be
served.
BIG ARTS Film Society will pres-
ent award-winning films, a mix of new
releases, documentaries and drama in
the Monday Night Film Series Windows
to the World. Refreshments and lively
discussions on Gainer Veranda follow
each film.
Films will be shown with surround
sound in high definition using a high-
quality screen and projector A sound-
enhancement system for the hearing
impaired is available. Most films

ning film tickets are $7. All Monday

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF DECEMBER 20, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although
taking advice isn't always easy for the head-
strong Sheep, you might want to consider
what someone you respect says about an
upcoming decision.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A new
offer is tempting, but don't be bullied into
a quick decision. Rely on your keen Bovine
business sense to alert you to anything that
might be questionable.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your
Gemini Twin nature rallies to help you deal
with this week's hectic schedules, both in
your personal and professional lives. One
caution: Watch your diet.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid
rushing to make up for time lost on a stalled
workplace operation. Best to set up a sched-
ule and pace yourself Welcome the help of
colleagues.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Despite those
glittering holiday distractions you love so
well, be sure to keep your feline senses set
on high to alert you to anything that might
require fast action.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Making an effort to restore fraying relation-
ships proves to be more successful than you
dared hope. The holidays also bring new
friends into your life.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Private and professional matters compete for
your attention. Be honest in your assessment
of which should get more of it, and for how
long.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
A seemingly endless list of must-do tasks is
best handled by tackling them one by one,
and taking energy-restoring timeouts between


each job.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) A vexing relationship seems
destined to deteriorate no matter what each
side tries to do. A third party's advice just
might prove helpful.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Reach out to ease any tensions caused
by home or workplace pressures before they
threaten the relationship-building progress
you've made.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
You often go out of your way to show kind-
ness to others. So, don't be surprised if other
people want to do something nice for you this
week.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
People in your life respect your Piscean wis-
dom, so don't hesitate to speak up about a
matter that you feel isn't being handled quite
the way it should be.
BORN THIS WEEK: Your personal
warmth helps you make friendships, and your
sense of fair play helps you keep them.


* On Dec. 26, 1606, William
Shakespeare's play "King Lear" is performed
at the court of King James I of England.
Shakespeare's plays were not published dur-
ing his lifetime. After his death, two members
of his troupe collected copies of his plays
and printed what is now called the First Folio
(1623).
* On Dec. 24, 1809, Christopher Houston
"Kit" Carson, celebrated hero of the
American West, is born in Richmond, Ky.
Although he spent much of his life fighting
Indians, Carson apparently had great sympa-
thy and respect for them -- in 1867 he became
the Superintendent of Indian Affairs for
Colorado Territory.


* On Dec. 25, 1914, just after midnight on
Christmas morning, the majority of German
troops engaged in World War I cease fire and
commence to sing Christmas carols. The sol-
diers of Germany, Russia, France and Britain
exchanged presents of cigarettes and plum
puddings and even played a good-natured
game of soccer.
* On Dec. 21, 1945, Gen. George S.
Patton, commander of the U.S. 3rd Army,
dies from injuries suffered not in battle, but
in a freak car accident in Germany. Never
diplomatic, Patton once berated and slapped
a hospitalized soldier diagnosed with "shell
shock," whom Patton accused of "malinger-
ing."
* On Dec. 22, 1956, a baby gorilla named
Colo enters the world at the Columbus Zoo in
Ohio, becoming the first-ever gorilla born in
captivity. Her parents had never learned par-
enting skills, so she was reared by zookeep-
ers. Colo, the oldest living gorilla in captivity,
went on to become a mother, a grandmother
and a great-grandmother.
* On Dec. 20, 1963, more than two years
after the Berlin Wall was constructed by East
Germany to prevent its citizens from flee-
ing its communist regime, nearly 4,000 West
Berliners are allowed to cross into East Berlin
to visit relatives.
* On Dec. 23, 1982, the Missouri
Department of Health and the federal Centers
for Disease Control inform residents of Times
Beach, Mo., that their town was contaminated
when the chemical dioxin was sprayed on its
unpaved roads. The whole town was evacu-
ated and demolished.


* It was French playwright Albert Guinon
who made the following sage observation:
"There are people who, instead of listening


to what is being said to them, are already
listening to what they are going to say them-
selves."- Most people at all familiar with the
name Max Schmeling know him as the Great
Nazi Hope, the boxer produced by Adolf
Hitler in the 1930s to defeat Joe Louis, sup-
posedly proving Aryan superiority. (He did
defeat Louis in a match in 1936, though he
lost a rematch in 1938.) What most people
don't realize, though, is that Schmeling did
not subscribe to Hitler's beliefs -- he wasn't
even a member of the Nazi party. In fact, dur-
ing World War II, Schmeling risked his life
to save two Jewish children. For reasons that
are unclear now, the Supreme Court in 1893
declared that a plant eaten during a main
course was a vegetable and one eaten after-
ward was a fruit.
* What do King Henry VIII, science-
fiction author H.G. Wells, English naturalist
Charles Darwin, American author Edgar Allan
Poe and composer Sergey Rachmaninoff have
in common? They all married their cousins.
* The 1958 film "Gigi," starring Leslie
Caron and Maurice Chevalier, has the distinc-
tion of having the shortest title of any film to
win the Academy Award for Best Picture.
* The home of sitting U.S. presidents, the
White House, didn't become widely known as
the White House until 1902, during Theodore
Roosevelt's term in office. The building was
originally called the President's Palace, but
the word "palace" was deemed to be too
royal-sounding, so the name was changed to
the Executive Mansion.


"We judge ourselves by what we feel

Portraits In Print
Window Wonder
by Jane Vos Hogg
indow
washers
aren't all
that uncommon.
I've seen lots of
them. Some huge
and hefty, others
lean and lanky,
maybe short and
squat; most not
even memorable...
but that was all
before Beth. Imagine, if you will, a
well-tanned, tiny blonde woman (hair
usually pony-tailed in place) often seen
pedaling along on a bike with a message
displayed on its front basket One less
car. She's Beth Warner, owner and sole
employee of Island Window Cleaning
and here she makes it clear. I'm a win-
dow cleaner, not a window washer!"
Why open up a business here in
Sanibel? "Windows, windows, every-
where," she said. Obviously, it's a win-
dow cleaner's paradise. Or so it is for
Beth. But with windows being just a job,
they're something you'll not find at her
home. In fact, most often when here,
she lives in a tent.
She's a serious professional.
Responding to my What got you into
windows?" she launched forth with her
explanation. For nearly 30 years she'd
been living in Kennebunk, Maine, most
of them residing in her large 1888
Victorian house. With more space than
necessary she always rented out a few
of the rooms, quite often to working
women. Long ago one of these was in
the housecleaning business, so many
of the incoming phone calls would be
for her. Beth was forever taking mes-
sages, usually requests for her services.
Eventually the tenant changed jobs and
moved away.
This all happened at a turning point
in Beth's own life. Her artist husband
had recently died of brain cancer, her
daughter was just 13, and she needed a
steady income. Working as a substitute
in the Maine public schools paid only
$50 a day; it was hard work, unpredict-
able scheduling and, above all, "the pay
was lousy." A housecleaning request
came in for the departed tenant and
Beth, thinking "Why not?" said she'd
do the job. When she realized she could
work a six-day week and pull in $100
a day if she put in really long hours,
trading teaching for cleaning seemed a
no-brainer.
Then came the ah-hah" moment.
A job she'd taken turned out to include
windows, something totally unfamiliar
to her. It was a challenge, took her
way longer than she had expected, but
she learned a lot. Experience by error,
she saw a niche that needed exploring.
Bit by bit her new business, a residen-
tial house cleaning service, was born.
Customers came via word-of-mouth
referrals. Lots were teachers from the
schools she'd subbed at but the pool
widened to include doctors, lawyers
and a whole range of the town's pro-
fessionals. Part -time, begun in 1993,
had become full-time by 2001. But no
amount of work could change the reality
of Maine winters; long and cold, not a
time to do windows.


Here her story shifts to Sanibel. First,
there was a foundation in place. Back
in 1986 she and her husband spent two
weeks here visiting his mother in her
house on the bay. They liked it. Next
year, another two weeks, and they liked
it even more. The following year they
packed a tent and sleeping bags and
came down again, this time to camp,
bike, sun and wander the beaches. This
laid the groundwork for Beth's eventual
decision. Sow a seed and watch it grow.
Years later, when her daughter was
finished with college and off on her
own, Beth still sought to flee Maine's
harsh winter. She packed her tent and
sleeping bag into a car and started
looking for warm winter possibilities.
This time she took a long, hard look
at Sanibel, and said, "this is it. I want


to start a business here. Just look at all
those windows."
First, she took care of all the details;
securing a license, registering her busi-
ness with the state of Florida, estab-
lishing a business name and getting a
phone. That was in 2005 and now the
business, firmly rooted, has taken off.
In November she closes down her
Maine operation, and with hurricane
season over, she heads down here. A
serious cook, in the gardens outside her
door she grows lettuce, arugula, basil,
other herbs, tomatoes and a vining spin-
ach all ready for cutting.
She lives in two worlds with 24 feet
of extension ladders plus another 18
feet of extension poles straddling both.
Whether in Maine or Sanibel she brings
a sparkle to all those panes of glass.#

Connie Hope's cook book

Author Signing
New Cookbook
R rt Myers author Connie Hope
will sign copies of her beautiful
new cookbook, In Addition... to
the Entree, Monday, December 20, 11
a.m. to 1 p.m. at MacIntosh Books &
Paper, 2407 Periwinkle Way.
In Addition.. .to the Entree is all
about side dishes. It has 160 recipes, 65
color photographs, and many sketches.
It explains what makes a pepper hot or
how to cut up that pumpkin or mango. It
has side comments and bits of informa-


tion to add to your knowledge as a great
cook. Chef hats are used to show the dif-
ficulty of each recipe.
"As a child, I was always on a chair
next to my mother cooking, baking, or
sometimes just making a mess," said
Hope. "I learned to create my own
tomato soup creation from just a can of
Campbell's and my imagination. I would
add a little of this spice and that sauce
and make my own concoction." Through
the years, she has traveled and collected,
tried, changed, and created recipes from
friends and acquaintances all over the
world. She has cooked for clients, catered
cocktail parties, and entertained guests
for more than 50 years.
"This is a cookbook that is geared
toward the busy and working person who
doesn't have a lot of time to spend cook-
ing, but wants to have a good meal. All
it takes is one side dish to transform the
entree into a complete meal," according
to Hope.

Book Signings
The authors of two new local his-
tory books will be available to sign
their books at MacIntosh Books &
Paper on Saturday, December 18, from


Buckingham Army Air Field by Matt
Johnson
1 to p.m. Both books were just released
by Arcadia Publishing.
Then & Now: Lee County author
Kim Phillips journeys into the past using
archival photographs from local museums
and historical societies. Her book resur-
rects Lee County's history, encompassing
rugged interior frontier and coastal gulf
towns, factories and farms, dusty cattle-
men and the leaders of industry, and
playgrounds of the rich and famous.
Matt Johnson will be on hand to
sign Buckingham Army Air Field, writ-
ten with journalist and author Chris
Wadsworth. Johnson is manager and his-
torian at the Southwest Florida Museum
of History. He and Wadsworth relate the
proud history of Buckingham Army Air
Field through vivid photographs and the
stories of the soldiers and civilians who
once called Buckingham home.
For most people in Southwest Florida,
the name Buckingham is just a dot on the


Lee County by Kim Phillips
map east of 1-75. But starting in 1942,
it was home to some 16,000 men and
women supporting the United States'
World War II efforts. Airplanes roared in
the skies over Lee County and the Gulf
of Mexico as young men trained as aerial
gunners. An entire town sprang up on
what was once swampland. Barracks
were built, along with stores, nightclubs,
churches, and even a hospital with its
own baby ward. Today the memories of
Buckingham Army Air Field can be found
hiding in plain sight, including a working
airport that was once the heart of the
base.
For more information about these
books and the signing, contact MacIntosh

Amazon Journey


Bill Shaw on Sanibel with his borrowed bicycle
Onboard he carries about 200 pounds of staples such as
pasta, rice, beans, spices and canned fish and soups, which he
supplements with fresh produce when possible. He cooks on a
single-burner propane stove, and he also has a three-man tent,
a two-burner stove and a lantern on board, though he's never
used them.
The sleeping area is equipped with side curtains that close
and a special mattress. Shaw is six-foot-six and says he sleeps


fine on board. He has a radio, but reception is spotty, so he
reads. Currently he's reading Charles Darwin's Voyage of The
Beagle.
On Sanibel, he stayed at the Sanibel Marina and a friendly
neighbor loaned him a bicycle to get around.
His route took him via New York City, then Annapolis,
where he spent four days due to bad weather; then it was on to
Hampton Rhodes, Virginia, Dismal Swamp Canal and Elizabeth
City, North Carolina. "Then it was Albemarle Sound, Pimlicio
Sound and a week at Little Washington, North Carolina. Next
was Oriental and Beaufort," he said. He spent a week in
Beaufort when Hurricane Nicole dropped 23 inches of rain.
There, the dockmaster treated him royally. The dockmaster
had been delivering a yacht to Halifax, Nova Scotia, when the
9/11 terrorist attacks occurred. "He was treated so well he said,
'Anyone from Halifax doesn't pay here,'" Shaw said.
Also, he met a realtor handling a property with a leaky roof.
"So for five days I stayed in the property, placing buckets under
the leaks and swabbing up water," Shaw said.
Next stop was Ocean Isle Beach, a stop that coincided with
the 35th homecoming of his college in nearby Catawba, North
Carolina. "I got to see my old roommate," he said. From there
it was Charleston, South Carolina, where Shaw took eight
days off to do some historic tours, then to Cumberland Island,
Georgia.
In St. Augustine he met a treasure hunter, who gave him
permission to use his chickee hut in Islamorada in the Florida
Keys. There he got his canoe painted and his engine serviced
and had to buy another chart plotter because his was ruined by
saltwater.
Shaw then went to Key West, Long Key and Flamingo and
spent a week in the Ever glades. "I went three and a half days
without seeing any people, only alligators," he said. He heard
about the approaching cold front and made the dash to Sanibel
for shelter and to meet his friend.
When he reaches Brownville, Shaw may opt to take a
freighter south to continue his trip to the Amazon. To follow his
progress, those interested can read his blog at blog.billshaw.or g
and he can be emailed at billshaw.or g@gmail.com.0

Sanibel And Captiva Support
Our Local Warriors - Generously


Kim Gaide of Mil-Sup with Francis Bailey, Mead Bailey-Johnson, Ray Sidham and Richard
Johnson
by Ted Tyson
The campaign to support our local warriors in forward operating locations in
Iraq, Afghanistan, and other isolated areas has received outstanding support
from the Sanibel-Captiva community. In just a few weeks, sufficient requested
items and funds to ship them overseas have been donated to cover needs and post-
age through May 2011.
While Sanibel supports warriors - and will continue until all of our troops have
returned home to their families - the local campaign has been a success, and will take
a temporary hiatus to organize for a mid-2011 campaign. Any person, group, or busi-
ness that wishes to become involved in the mid-2011 fund raising effort is urged to
contact Ted Tyson or Moni Arnowitz at sanibelsupportswarriors@comcast.net at your
earliest convenience. A meeting is planned for early April at a time, date, and location
to be announced.

Around The Islands With Anne
Pandora's Box Has New Location In
Tahitian Gardens; New Accessories
Boutique Opens In The Village
by Anne Mitchell
Anyone who has been wondering where Pandora's Box disappeared to this
summer may be glad to know this eclectic gift and home decor store will
reappear in Tahitian Gardens, likely around the first of the year.
Meanwhile, the popular greeting card department, which used to be upstairs at the
Periwinkle Place location, now has its own storefront, also in Tahitian Gardens, called
Pandora's Box Too.
The card selection runs from naughty to nice, saucy to sincere, outrageous to zany,
and covers many genres, including dogs and cats, retro characters, wildlife, 3-D, swing
and pop-up cards, mermaids and seashells. There's also a line of local artist Myra
Roberts' cards. Also, check out the comical cocktail napkins and Eat Your Peas "seed"
packets filled with charming thoughts for friends and family members.
You'll find picture frames, wall hangings with affirmations, Pandora charms from
$25 and bracelets in silver and gold, Anne Taintor's magnetic vintage postcards, and
the scaly-tailed mermen Christmas gag ornaments with names such as Jack Hammer.
Deborah Wittman, who recently returned to Sanibel from Maui, is very helpful and
friendly. Stop in and see her, or call 472-6263.
Another store that disappeared has popped up again with a new name. On The
Edge (formerly Betsy's Necessities) has reopened in The Village shops selling bold and

Cereal Bandits Ask: Got Milk?
he directors and staff at FISH were ecstatic to see a pile of 402 boxes of
breakfast cereal stacked up in the conference room.
The duo of Tom Louwers and Bill Traum had challenged the Kiwanis club
to help support the FISH food pantry. At the holiday dinner, the Kiwanis members
were to bring boxes of cereal to reach their goal of 200 boxes. The Kiwanis members
started to call Louwers and Traum the cereal bandits and said they would do whatever
necessary to meet the goal.

Got Milk?
So, where did the rest of the cereal
come from? Louwers called the Sanibel-
Captiva Community Bank and asked
Craig Albert to match whatever was col-
lected. The bank agreed to help with this
project. What about the last two boxes to
bring the total to 402?
"FISH President Maggi Feiner's favor-
ite cereal is Cocoa Puffs. As a tribute to
Feinder's hard work, the last two boxes
placed on the pile were her favorite
Cocoa Puffs," Louwers said.
What do you do with all that cereal
and no milk? Louwers contacted Lynn
Ridlehoover, a member of SWOTI
(Serving Women On The Islands). The
SWOTI team of Zonta is a women's
group on the island that has a great
interest in helping the community. After
a short discussion, SWOTI agreed to
donate money for more than 75 gallons
of milk.
"The service clubs of the island have
always worked together to make things
happen, with a common interest in assist-
ing less fortunate families," said Louwers.
FISH of Sanibel is now helping more
than 100 families with food subsidies.
During the next couple of weeks, the
children of these families will be out of
school and cereal is the perfect, easily
prepared meal. For the next couple of
weeks, the families will have a good selec-
tion of Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Corn
Flakes, oatmeal, and even a few boxes of
BooBerry.

ing the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and work closely with other local service
organizations to identify areas where they can be of particular help.
If you know of anyone who may need assistance or would like to offer your help,
contact Friends Who Care at 472-5152.
"These contributions are an essential part of each holiday season and we appreci-
ate everyone who so generously supports our effort," said Tom Hoover. "The Sanibel
Captiva Lions Club is always proud of its commitment to serve so many different
causes in our community."
Don't forget to stop by the tree lot for your special tree this year. The premium

North Carolina. All proceeds will go to benefit more local charities.
They are located in the Bailey's Center, right between the Grog Shop and Island

Gardens. Emma and her aunt donated non-perishable food at Sanibella's to the
FISH Food Drive and as a result were automatically entered into the weekly gift bas-
ket drawing.

Royal Shell Companies shopping centers, a copy of the new Alan Maltz Visions of

continuing to gather food for the FISH Food Drive and will do so until December 20 -
so hurry and visit the stores this week with non-perishable food items. Merchants have

drive. FISH can be contacted at 472-4775.4

Rotary

Happenings
submitted by Shirley Jewell
What a season this is! A season
of family and friends, a season
of sharing and giving, and a
season of reflection and joy for almost
all people around the globe, no matter
what heritage or religion.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Founda-
tion has been a little more mindful of
that giving spirit and with that in mind
has been focusing their year-end giving
on local organizations that reach out and
help people. In the last month or so, we
have given donation checks to Blessings
in a Backpack, Friends Who Care, and
last week to FISH of Sanibel (Friends In
Service Here).
Before the ceremonious check presen-
tation took place, Bill Fellows, president-
elect of FISH, gave us an overview of
what this outstanding organization's mis-
sion is here on our islands. As Bill said,
"FISH, who you may know as Friends
In Service Here, is primarily a volunteer,
nonprofit, human services organization
that was formed nearly 30 years ago with
the premise of neighbors helping neigh-
bors. "
This organization provides free human
services such as transportation for medi-
cal appointments, meal delivery, health
equipment, food pantry and emergency
financial assistance. But beyond that it
reaches out to identify the needs of our
community and finds ways to set up solu-
tions for giving help to families and indi-


Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Foundation focuses its holiday giving locally. Shown here are Lee
Almas, FISH President-Elect Bill Fellows, John Pryor and, Alex Werner.


viduals in need.
FISH now has a client base that is
approaching the unbelievable number of
close to 1,000 clients. That figure is a 50
percent increase over the past year. This
increase is due in some part to our coun-
try's economic woes and partly to more
outreach activities. FISH is a volunteer-
driven organization with a volunteer force
of over 200 dedicated men and women-
and leading the way is outgoing President
Maggi Feiner. Maggi will continue with
the organization as executive director and
once again as a volunteer.
Over the past 12 months, FISH volun-
teers have:


* Driven 10,000 miles of transporta-
tion for our elderly and disabled neighbors
to medical-related appointments on and
off the islands.
* They delivered over 1,900 hot meals
to those housebound, living alone or ill
who welcome the daily visits as much as
the meal itself.
* Provided nearly 300 pieces of medi-
cal equipment on a temporary basis after
surgery or injury.
* 700 morning reassurance calls were
made with investigative follow-up if no
answer through their Person-to-Person
program


* About three years ago, they rec-
ognized the need for a food pantry on
the island. Since opening the food pan-
try, they have collected and distributed
60,000 pounds of food to our island
neighbors. This past September, at the
peak of our off-season, they had 82
island families visiting the food pantry on
a regular basis.
Almost immediately after opening the
pantry, they applied and were accepted
to be a partner with the Harry Chapin
Food Bank and just last week, accepted
an invitation to become a USDA-
supported food pantry. This will allow
them to buy meat and fresh produce at
a very reasonable price. FISH provided
38 families with Thanksgiving baskets
this year and another 20 Thanksgiving
restaurant vouchers enabling elderly or
singles who were able to get out to enjoy
a holiday meal.
Anyone interested in learning more
about FISH can stop by their office at
1630-B Periwinkle Way or call 472-
4775.
Anyone who would like to make a
donation directly to the Sanibel-Captiva
Rotary Foundation can contact Shirley
Jewell at 337-1099.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club
meets at 7 a.m., every Friday morning
at Sanibel's new Cip's restaurant, right
next to ACE Hardware. If you would

ISLAND SUN - DECEMBER 17, 2010


Toya Needs A Loving Home
Sanibel resident Carola Wilkens could not resist adopting Toya, a beautiful
blue-coated Weimaraner-Staffordshire mix puppy who needed a home. She
thought her five cats would get used to having a sweet-natured dog in the
house - but they haven't.
"The cats are devastated and in fear at all times," said Wilkens. "Animal specialists,
even dog trainers keep telling us that it will never get better because the cats did not
have the chance to grow up with her - or any dog for that matter."
"She is extremely affectionate and we love her so very dearly that it is extremely
hard for us to even face the fact that we have to give her up," she said. "She loves our
long daily walks through the preserves, enjoys playtime at home and loves to cuddle a
lot, especially when I want to work on the computer."


Toya, who does not
have a single mean
bone in her body, is
trained to sleep in her
crate at night. "She so
much deserves a very
loving home. We will
consider only serious
inquiries with the will to
a lifelong commitment."
Those interested may
contact Wilkens at
395-2420.0

10B ISLAND SUN- DECEMBER 17, 2010
From page 1B
Local Warriors
The campaign wishes to especially
thank the Island Sun (Lorin Arundel,
Ken Rasi, and their staff), and Robbie and
Geoffrey Roepstorff, and their staff at
Bank of the Islands, the campaign's two
major business sponsors, for their encour-
agement, advice, and support which were
essential to the success of the campaign.
The support of Robb Moran, president of
the Sanibel Republican Caucus, and the
caucus members, who at their Christmas
party raised the most of any group, in
just 20 minutes for our local warriors,
is greatly appreciated. Also, Marty and
Brenda Harrity, and the great staff of
Doc Ford's were generous and support-
ive throughout. The support of Baileys
General Store, the people of the Bank of
America, the Sanibel Captiva Community
Bank, and Lily & Co. jewelers helped us
go over the top.
What also was truly gratifying was the
overwhelming support of the residents
of the islands, who although donat-
ing generously to many worthy islands
charities, found it in their hearts to open
their pocketbooks and help our troops
by donating to the warriors campaign.
Thank you all so much. Together, we did
it!
Our most recent donors are: Francis
Bailey, M. Mead Bailey-Johnson, Richard
Johnson, Ray Sidham, Dan Schuyler,
Anne Dodd, Kalliope Alvarez, Karen
Bell, Gracie and Angel, Bill and Kay
McReavy, Chuck and Helen Ketteman,

SANIBEL POOL LEAGUE
Standings through December 13, 2010


Standing Team Name Won Lost

First Fresh Legion Crew 77 67

Second Sanibel Cafe 76 68

Third Bunt's Ball Busters 73 71

Fourth One Ball Wonders 62 82

Bunt's Ball Busters 9 One Ball Wonders 7
Fresh Legion Crew 11 Sanibel Cafe 5


Sanibel 8-Ball Pool League

A First Win
F resh Legion Crew blasted Sanibel
Cafe 11-5 to grab first place in
the league. Captain Tom Hensel,
Doug Conaway and Joe Stahl had three
wins each for the Crew.
In the first eight weeks of league play
Sanibel Cafe has led for four weeks, the
Legion Crew for two weeks, and the two
teams have been tied for two weeks.
The honeymoon may be over this
Monday, however, when third place
Bunt's Ball Busters clashes with the Fresh
Legion Crew. The Busters are only four
games out of first place and three games
out of second place.


In the 9-7 win by Bunt's Ball Busters
over the One Ball Wonders, raucous
cheers broke out when Kip Johnson
racked up his first win in league play for
Bunt's Ball Busters. Never mind that the
win came on an 8-ball scratch by One
Ball Wonder's Chris Arnold. Unlucky
Arnold also lost a second game of the
four he played when he made the 8-ball
after fouling.
Ball Buster shooter Terry Ricotta had
a perfect 4-0 night and Bob Buntrock
also was undefeated as he posted a 2-0
night. For the Wonders, Butch "Safeties
are for Sissies" Bouchard again posted
four wins for the night and Kelly Greten
rode two miracle carom shots to two wins
over Dave Doane. Greten is now called
"Carom" Kelly by his teammates.0

Sanibel Softball League:
Sanctuary Island Electric
Stuns Sanibel Grill


Sanctuary Island Electric


by Nick Brown
Sanctuary Island Electric did what no other softball team has been able to do
last Wednesday night - they defeated the reigning champions the Sanibel Grill.
It was an electrifying game with a combined 57 runs scored. This is the first
game Sanibel Grill has lost in its last 13 games, dating back to March 2010.
Despite getting an early eight-run lead, directed by the heavy batting of Mark
Childers, the Sanibel Grill couldn't keep the cooker on high. Sanctuary Island Electric
started a little slow, but once the batteries charged up, energy coursed through their
circuits. They inched ahead by a run in the bottom of the fourth inning. It looked like
it wasn't going to be enough though as the Sanibel Grill recaptured a narrow one-
run lead in the sixth inning at a score of 28 to 27. Finally in the bottom of the 7th,
Sanctuary Electric made a final two-run surge to win in a major upset. Final score:
Sanctuary Island Electric 29, Sanibel Grill 28.
In the other games of the evening, Aztec Plumbing took the plunger to All Island
Glass in a swirling victory. Led by chieftan Mike Fuchs, the Aztec Plumbing Warriors

vidual residents, thanks to broad support from the Sanibel and Captiva as well as
Southwest Florida community.
Sign up by calling The Sanctuary Golf Shop at 472-6233 and asking for Drew
Donnelly. There are many sponsorship opportunities for four-player teams, rang-
ing from a $5,000 Diamond Partner sponsorship to a $150 Hole Partner sponsor-
ship. The funds go the Good Neighbor Community Foundation of Sanibel-Captiva
(GNCFSC). This year the honorary chairpersons are Tom and Elaine August, who
have supported the tournament since its inception and been generous donors to area
non-profits. "We've always been very deeply interested in supporting those people on
the islands who need a helping hand, and that's what this tournament is being played
for," said Elaine August.
"For 10 years the Good Neighbor Foundation has focused on helping those in need
here on the islands," said Al Hanser, chariman of the foundation. "For those 10 years
we operated under the umbrella of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation;
however, our two organizations have grown farther apart in our vision of service to
those in need. Consequently we have separated and formed our own island foundation
which will allow us to meet community needs far better and with less administrative
expense.
"Again this year we are grateful to The Sanctuary Golf Club for their generos-
ity in hosting the annual community challenge for the benefit of the Good Neighbor
Foundation and those in need here.
We are also proud to
acknowledge Tom and Elaine
August as this year's honary
chairs. The Augusts have sup-
ported so many of the island
events and causes without ever
asking for or receiving any rec-
ognition. They are most deserv-
ing and deserve high praise for
their community support and
spirit.
The Florida Scramble golf
tournament begins at 10:30
a.m. with a brunch followed
by a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start.
Afterwards golfers meet at the Tom and Elaine August with Good Neighbor
clubhouse patio for drinks, hors Foundation Chair Al Hanser
d'oeuvres and the chance to win
a prize in the helicopter drop.
Members of The Sanctuary Golf Club have warmly embraced the event and the
sponsorship opportunities. We want to thank Sanctuary members for their excep-
tional generosity and commitment to this fundraiser, which has done so much for our
island community," said Committee Co-chair Terry Igo.0

PGA Tips

Playing Golf In

The Winter Chill
by Matt Oakley,
PGA Golf
Professional
prttlaying golf
in the colder
t weather can
still be fun. We
have to remember
down here that
cold" is a pretty
relative term. Fifties
and 60s are still
pretty warm compared to the rest of the
country this time of year. Here are some
tips to deal with cooler weather:
* Cover your head, hands and feet.
These are the areas that the body loses
heat the quickest. Wear a knit cap, gloves
on both hands and warm socks to com-
bat this.
* Layers of clothing work better than
one big, bulky coat. Try a turtleneck
under your sweater and then a light golf
jacket.
* The golf ball loses distance in cooler
weather. This effect can be as much as
a one-club difference depending on the
temperature. Hit one club more when it's
cold.
* Prepare your body for exercise.
Stretch your muscles well before playing
in cold; it's easy to pull a muscle. Your
body tenses up when it's cold, so stretch
it out.


* The greens will be firm and fast
when it's cold. This is because the grass
is not growing as much. Use a more
high lofted shot near the green to stop
the ball. Practice on the putting green to
gauge the speed before you go out on
the course.
*. Put a few hand warmers in your
pants/jacket pockets. These instant hand
warmers are fantastic. Remember, the
rules of golf state you can use these to
warm your hands, but you cannot warm
the golf ball with it.
Using these tips will keep you toasty
warm and having fun playing golf this
winter.

Beachview Men's

Golf Association
by Ed O'Neil
If we are to examine a golf tourna-
ment called Sucker in the Bucket, you
probably should grab a comfortable
chair and bring a soothing beverage.
It's a strange name for a fairly simple
game, but one packed with pressure
and a test of nerves for those who wind
up in the "bucket." It was the featured
event when the Beachview Men's Golf
Association assembled on December 11.
Each player plays his own game
throughout the day. The best score on
the first hole is recorded and that player's
ball will not count for the next three
holes. The second hole score is recorded
by the low player of the remaining three.
That leaves two guys to put up a single


score on No. 3. The higher of those two
then becomes the sucker in the bucket
on No. 4, and only his score counts. The
team is stuck with it for better or worse.
Friends can be lost by goofing up when
you are the poor sucker.
The process is repeated through each
set of four holes. No victims are identified
on the final two holes. Threesomes have
an extra burden... someone can be the
sucker six times instead of four.
Explaining this game takes longer
than it takes to play it. Rich Rompala,
current leader in the President's Cup
points standings, led the winning team
with a lovely 54. Clearly no one choked
in the pressure position among Michael
Zembko, Guy Tober and Jack Schmidt.


ISLAND SUN- DECEMBER 17, 2010 19B
Wayne Turner, Mark Ryan, Jerry Mader
and Stan Sheft came in second with
59. No names were mentioned but one
player spent a lot of the day in a bucket.
Helmut Peters, Fred Zimmer, Bill Sartoris
and Jack Tukey took third with a 60.
A cool morning on December 7
found World War II veteran Ralph Barton
observing Pearl Harbor Day on a winning
team in the best two of four ball event.
Zembko, Rene Lohser and Dick Chocol
rounded out the winning squad, which
posted a net 106.
Wayne Turner, Guy Tober, Dave Lewis
and Hunt Ethridge finished second at
111.2

Health Or Family: What Is The Real
Reason Urban Meyer Left Florida?
by Ed Frank
W hat was the real reason why Urban Meyer walked
away from the $20 million he would have earned
over the next five years if he had remained the Florida
Gators football coach?
Repeatedly, the highly-successful coach, who won two nation-
- al football championships in his six seasons at Gainesville, has
said it was for family reasons. With two daughters playing college
volleyball, he wanted the freedom to see them play - he wanted
more time to spend with his kids and wife.
A year ago, Meyer resigned the Gator job over heart related
concerns. A day later he rescinded that action although he did
step back from some of his rigorous scouting responsibilities.
There were reports last week that doctors had told Meyer his recurring symptoms
including chest pain raise the risks of further heart problems.
It took Florida only three days to name Texas assistant Will Muschamp as Meyer's
replacement. And another Texas assistant coach, Major Applewhite, is expected to fol-
low Muschamp to Gatorland.
Although Meyer's offense struggled this season as the team fell to a 7-5 record,
Muschamp will have big shoes to fill replacing the popular Meyer.
Meyer's six-year record at Florida is a sparkling 64-15, raising his career chart to
103-23. And he is generally recognized as the architect of a spread offense that was
difficult to defend.
Only 46 years old, don't be surprised if sometime down the line when Meyer grows
restless at home and/or his health improves, you see him back on the sidelines coach-
ing another major football powerhouse.
22d Shark Shootout Big Success with Big Crowds
Greg Norman's 22nd annual Shark Shootout, the 10th held at Naples' Tiburon
Golf Club, drew an estimated 35,000 golf fans that saw England's Ian Poulter and
American Dustin Johnson capture the first-place prize of $750,000.
Poulter and Johnson shot a final round Sunday of 59 in a scramble format to
defeat Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell and Darren Clark by two strokes.
Defending champions Steve Sticker and Jerry Kelley finished tied for third with
Chris DiMarco and Anthony Kim.


Even with
cold, wet weather
Wednesday and
Thursday when
the pro-ams
were played and
Sunday's final
round pushed
back an hour due
to pending rain,
Norman said his
2010 Shootout
was "our best
across the board.
The spectators
came out fantasti-
cally."
Everblades
Drop Two
of Three to
First-Place
Greenville at Urban Meyer
Home
The Florida
Everblades failed to gain ground on first-place Greenville last weekend, dropping two
of three games at Germain Arena.
After winning Wednesday's opener in a 3-2 shootout, the Everblades lost Friday
and Saturday night's games 2-1 and 5-2.
The defeats dropped the local hockey team six points behind Greenville in the
ECHL South Division. However, Florida had the opportunity to cut back into that lead
Wednesday when they traveled to Greenville.
The first-place Road Warriors were 6-1-1 against Florida entering Wednesday's
game.
Florida remains on foreign ice this weekend playing South Carolina tonight, Friday,
and again Saturday.
The Everblades return to Germain next week hosting Gwinnett Tuesday and
Wednesday nights.
With a season record of 16-11, the Everblades continue to draw big home crowds.
A near-capacity crowd of 6,781 packed Germain Saturday.4


Date Announced For Minnesota

Twins Celebrity Golf Classic
L ee Memorial Health System Foundation has announced the 13th Annual
Minnesota Twins Celebrity Golf Classic will be held Thursday, February 24,
on the championship-level Wee Friendly and Long Mean courses at Fiddlesticks
Country Club in Fort Myers.
Past participants in the annual classic have included 2009 American League MVP
Joe Mauer, Michael Cuddyer, Carl Pavano, Nick Blackburn, Kevin Slowey, pitching
ace Joe Nathan, 2010 American League Manager of the Year Ron Gardenhire and
Hall of Fame candidate Bert Blyleven.
The classic supports programs and treatments at Lee Memorial Health System's
Regional Cancer Center.
The scramble-format golf tournament is followed by a seated dinner featuring silent
and live auctions. Bidding opportunities will include one-of-a-kind hand-signed memo-
rabilia from the worlds of sports and entertainment, luxurious spa and jewelry items,
a trip to Napa Valley with a private vintner tour and a trip to the AT&T National with
VIP access and luxury hotel accommodations.
Said Lee Memorial Health System Chief Foundation Officer Sharon MacDonald,
"We are delighted to again partner with The Minnesota Twins and Fiddlesticks
Country Club to deliver a first-class day on the courses in support of those battling
cancer. We are grateful for the outstanding partnership of the Minnesota Twins orga-
nization and its players and the members of Fiddlesticks Country Club in helping us to
save lives. We need to ensure patients receive the highest quality medical care avail-
able."
Added Minnesota Twins Celebrity Golf Classic Event Chair and Fiddlesticks mem-
ber Debby Welsh, "We look forward to an outstanding year in support of life-saving
cancer care. Our planning committee will deliver another memorable and unique
event. Our goal is to offer guests an outstanding experience while raising funds for a
critical cause here in the Southwest Florida community."

Bed Tax Revenue

Up Four Percent
The Lee County Visitor &
Convention Bureau (VCB) has
reported that tourist tax collec-
tions, also known as the bed tax, on
paid accommodations rose nearly four
percent for fiscal year ending September
31.
Collections rose from $21,86 million
in fiscal year 2008-09 to $22,73 million
in 2009-10.
In addition, a bureau spokesperson,
said most of the destination's tourism
performance indicators were either flat
or slightly down for its most recent fiscal
year. Visitation ended the year down 1.2
percent, from 4.8 million in 2008-09 to
4.7 million in 2009-10. This included a
5.6 percent increase in those staying in
paid accommodations that was offset by
a 6.9 percent decrease in visitors staying
with friends and relatives.
This trend is one the VCB is striving
to achieve, since visitors staying in paid
accommodations tend to spend more
in the destination, which helps explain
a rise in bed tax collections in the face
of a slight decrease in visitation. It is the
second consecutive year in which visitors
staying in paid accommodations have
risen.
Average occupancy declined 1.7
percent to 51.57 percent, and occupied
room nights remained flat in spite of a
1.7 percent increase in available room
nights, according to a bureau statement.
Average daily hotel rates remained flat


year over year at $119.79, and revenue
per available room was down 1.7 percent
year over year.
The only significant decrease in tour-
ism metrics came in expenditures, which
fell 13 percent from $2.8 million to $2.4
million in the same period.
"We're encouraged by the destina-
tion's overall performance, especially
given the struggling economy over the
last year and the gulf oil spill this past
summer," said Tamara Pigott, bureau
executive director. "We really held our
own in bed tax collections and most other
metrics in the midst of some challenging
conditions."
Given this success, Pigott said the
VCB will stay the course in the coming
fiscal year, with some adjustments and
refinements to its marketing efforts. In
addition to pursuing proven markets, the
bureau plans to court market segments
that are not as deeply impacted by eco-
nomic conditions and motivate potential
visitors in decision-making in the destina-
tion's favor.
VCB staff also intends to strengthen
its sales efforts and hone its messaging as
it places a special emphasis on the state
of Florida, established international mar-
kets, and the group motorcoach market.
And with the increasing influence of the
Internet on consumer travel, Pigott said
digital marketing is another VCB empha-
sis for the coming fiscal year that began
October 1.0

Hidden Treasures

Where Do Birthstones Come From?
by Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell
- A t some point in I.
Sour lives, many of
A us have received a
piece of jewelry that fea- _
tures our birthstone. But n
where did the idea come k, . "
from? How did one stone . _
come to represent each
birth month?
The idea of birthstones
- a gemstone assigned # --
to each month of the year - is thought to be
an ancient one, and scholars trace it back to .
the breastplate of Aaron described in the Bible
in the book of Exodus. The breastplate was a
religious garment set with 12 gemstones that
represented the 12 tribes of Israel. The gems Krypell bracelets together
were set in four rows of three: sardius, topaz
and carbuncle; emerald, sapphire and diamond; ligure, agate and amethyst; and beryl,
onyx and jasper.
So how did we get from gemstones representing the tribes of Israel to birthstones?
The writings of Flavius Josephus (1st century AD) and St. Jerome (5th century AD)
made the connection between the 12 stones in the breastplate and the 12 signs of the
Zodiac. The idea was proposed that each of the gemstones had special powers asso-
ciated with the corresponding astrological sign, and that wearing these stones at the
right time would have therapeutic or talismanic benefits.
But this is not quite the same idea as the modern day concept of the birthstone.
The idea of each person always wearing a gemstone corresponding to the month of
his or her birth is a more modern idea that scholars trace to 18th century Poland, with
the arrival of Jewish gem traders in the region.
The list of birthstones we recognize today was not defined until 1912, by the
National Association of Jewelers (Jewelers of America). The modern birthstone list has
been largely unchanged since then. So go ahead and choose a piece with your birth-
stone in it; it may bring you good fortune all year long.

Donation To SCCF Campaign


SCCF Trustee Philip Puschel recognizes Sandy Stilwell's campaign gift


Sandy Stilwell, president of Stilwell Enterprises, gave Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation a welcome surprise at Captiva's Holiday Marketplace
last weekend. She donated $50 gift certificates redeemable at any of her six
restaurants - R.C. Otters, Captiva Pizza, Cantina Captiva, Keylime Bistro, and the
Captiva and Fort Myers locations of Sunshine Seafood Cafe.
"Every penny of each $50 certificate sold will go directly to the campaign to pre-
serve the Bailey Family Homestead," said longtime SCCF staffer Kristie Anders. "I
can't think of a more delicious way to show your support."
At the conclusion of the Holiday Marketplace, 38 certificates remained. They can
be purchased by calling 472-1932 or stopping by the SCCF Native Plant Nursery at
3333 Sanibel-Captiva Road at the mile 1 marker on Sanibel.

Bank of the Islands' Rob Lisenbee and winner Arline Ford (left) present gift to St. Isabel's
Women's Guild members
Arline Ford is the most recent winner of the We Love Our Islands promotion
sponsored by Bank of the Islands. Ford was spotted with a decal on her
vehicle. That won her the right to select which local non-profit cause would
receive a charitable contribution of $200 from the bank. This contribution marks
$39,600 given to island non-profits through the program.
Ford chose to direct the gift to the Women's Guild of St. Isabel's Roman Catholic
Church.
"We're so pleased Arline chose the Women's Guild for our donation," said Bank
of the Islands Vice President/Manager Rob Lisenbee. "They are such a resource for
their parish and others in our island community.0


Auctions Benefit Ronald McDonald

House And Bright Beginnings School
Sanibel Air Conditioning continues its commitment of supporting members in
its own community by auctioning off two new air conditioning systems to raise
money for two local organizations, raising more than $7,000.
The first donation was made to The Ronald McDonald House of Southwest Florida
which is part of The Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida on the Lee Memorial
Health System's HealthPark campus in South Fort Myers. The Ronald McDonald
House provides a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill children undergo-
ing medical treatment.
The second donation was to the Bright Beginnings Early School which is part of
the Cypress Lake United Methodist Church in Fort Myers. The money will help fund
the school's educational programs. Sanibel Air's managing partner Todd Hayes' chil-
dren attend the school, and he and his wife Jennifer have actively supported it for
several years.
"We are happy with the outcome of the auctions and to have the opportunity to
make this contribution," said Bryan Hayes. "We always look forward to being able to
lend a hand to such valuable organizations in our community. "4

Deck The Walls

_ . off-white?
Are they this color
because you like
* - i them this way, or
do you dread the
color selection pro-
cess and the possi-
' ability of making the
wrong choice? This
is a common fear among homeown-
ers, and so many will turn to an interior
decorator to make the daring change for
them. But few ever regret finally taking
the plunge.
If you are just beginning to consider
color, you probably have collected dozens
of small paint chip samples. There are
two things to consider when selecting a
color from these nifty little samples. First
of all, being so small, it's tough to judge
how the color will look on an entire wall.
Secondly, often times, the tiny sample
will appear lighter than when the actual
paint covers an entire room.

If It Sounds
Too Good
To Be True...


'I


by Bryan Hayes
I 've recently
received an after
hours call from a
long-time customer.
He was very upset,
a little embarrassed
and, quite frankly,
scared. What had
happened was he
was sitting at home
when the phone


rang. It was an air conditioning com-
pany that was going to be in his area on
such and such a date and they were pre-
pared to offer him a great deal on an air
conditioning check-up. Sound familiar?
A while back, I wrote an article about
the practices of some air conditioning
companies that offer $29.95 check-ups.
The point of the article was: You can-
not send out a fully-trained technician
in a $20,000 truck with $5,000 worth
of parts on board, only charge $29.95
and stay in business. These technicians
are instructed to make a certain dollar
amount on each call, and that is how this
scam works. This is just wrong.
In the case of my long-time customer,
he was told that there was mold in his
duct work and air handler that was so


wovens, laser-cut silk looks and fabulous
faux finishes and textures.
Still another option is to upholster the
walls with most any fabric from denim
to silk. Not only is this an unusual and
dramatic treatment, but it provides very
effective sound proofing -- highly desir-
able for a media room, game room or
child's room.
Also try to take a look at a room's ori-
entation and climate. For the warm room
with a southern exposure, a sunny yellow
may make habitants feel uncomfortably
warm without their knowing why. This is
the room where cooler colors from the
blue, violet, and green families will serve
best. Save your sunny yellows and peach-
es for rooms with northern exposures.
They will bring warmth to an area that
would otherwise feel cool.
Contrasting colors can accentu-
ate interesting architectural design.
Remember, the higher the contrast, the
more attention it will draw. Low value
contrast is usually sufficient because it will
subtly provide a depth and richness.
Color has a psychological impact,
which is probably why many of us fear
using it on the walls of a room. But would
you wear off-white clothes every day to
avoid too much psychological impact? Of
course not. Color is a wonderful way to
wake up a room's interiors.
So take the plunge and show off your
walls.

bad, that the house was a health risk. The
"technician," and I use that word loosely,
went on to say that either the customer
spend about $6,000 to clean everything
up, or face serious health issues.
In defense of this very nice customer, I
totally understand how the $29.95 price
tag was very appealing, especially during
these difficult economic times. With that
said, let me state that we don't find the
system in perfect order each time we do
an a/c check - this is simply not possible.
There are times when we'll discover that
parts or services are going to be needed,
but not every time a technician comes
to your house to do some preventative
maintenance.
So, next time the phone rings and
you get an offer promising you the deal
of a lifetime, you need to remember: If it
sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Conceptual layout of potential residence hall at Edison State College Lee Campus.
For the first time in Edison State College's 48-year history, students will have
the option to live on campus.
The college's district board of trustees has approved a resolution to authorize
financing and construction of the student housing project by the Edison State College
Financing Corporation, a direct support organization of the college.
In further action, the financing corporation approved the college's request to move
forward with constructing a four-story, 405-bed residence hall.
"Beyond a traditional dormitory, I see this as a living and learning center," said Dr.
Kenneth Walker, pPresident of Edison State College. "It's not just a place where stu-
dents come to live. We plan to have a variety of activities within our facility."
Edison State offers 10 bachelor degree programs and intends to continue to add
programs that will meet the needs of employers and students. Edison State administra-

Student Housing
Reality At Edison


ISLAND SUN - DECEMBER 17, 2010 25B
tors say with the expansion into baccalaureate degrees, more students from out of the
area are expressing an interest in Edison State.
A 2010 survey found that 96 percent of current unmarried students would like to
see on-campus student housing.
"I would be able to live a more independent life but still be close to home and my
family," said ESC student Angie Bunting, 20, of Fort Myers Beach. "I love being on
this beautiful campus, I would love to call it home."
Construction will begin in early spring 2011. Plans include two- and four-bedroom
suite-style units, common recreational areas and academic centers. It is slated to open
for the fall 2012 semester. Construction costs are estimated at $26.3 million.
Financing was made possible through a partnership with the Lee County Industrial
Authority and Edison State College Financing Corp. The Lee County Board of
Commissioners has approved the sale of bonds on behalf of the Financing Corp.4

Insurance Tip
Water Backup
And Your Home
by Marge Meek
Is your home
over 30 years
old? This is one
example of where
an important
lJ coverage in your
insurance policy
may be missing
and that coverage
is water back-up.
Older water heaters
often cause serious water damage when
they leak, as do in-attic air conditioners,
where you can't easily see what is hap-
pening until water spots or mold appear
on the ceiling. Older homes are particu-
larly vulnerable to exclusions on home-
owners insurance policies and water
damage is one exclusion that you don't
want to have. Typically, if the home-
owners policy was initiated before the


house passed the exclusion timeframe,
companies will not change the policy.
Some policies exclude water backup
completely. Citizens' homeowners policy
has it excluded, as do many of the other
so called take-out companies, who pur-
chased Citizens customers' policies to get
their business started. Other well-estab-
lished Florida insurers may include this
important coverage as an endorsement or
they may limit the exposure to a relatively
low coverage.
Lower premiums can mean lower or
non-existent coverage, so ask the ques-
tion of your agent before you leap after
lower cost. All policies are not equal and
this particular coverage can hurt you just
when you don't want to hear that your
ruined floor or damaged walls are not
going to be covered by your homeown-
er's insurance.
Marge Meek is a local Sanibel-
Captiva insurance agent, who can be

Will Power
Estate Tax Compromise
-by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified
Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney, CPA


A s I write
this before
I= Cf AL the publish-
A 7 ing deadline, the
I Congress and the
President are hash-
ing out the tax bill
that would serve
to extend the Bush
tax cuts for another
two years. Most of what the press is
writing about, however, speaks to the
income tax laws. The compromise on
estate taxes appears to be different.
What I have read would indicate that
for the next two years the federal estate
tax exemption amount would increase to
$5 million while the top estate tax rate
would decrease to 35 percent. These are
welcome developments. However we
have not been told the details.
Presently, the lifetime gift tax exemp-
tion is only $1 million, which makes it
difficult to accomplish transfers during life
that would result in larger estate tax sav-
ings. Further, some of the common estate
tax savings techniques, such as Grantor
Retained Annuity Trusts, may be severely
curtailed under the new law.
While a $5 million exemption would
serve to take most estates out of the tax-
able arena, keep in mind that this is only
a two year extension - assuming it is


passed in this form. A main concern of
mine is that the law has been, and appar -
ently will continue to be, uncertain. This
makes it difficult to advise clients what to
do and how to plan.
Suppose you have an estate valued
at $3 million. While that amount is far
below the $5 million exemption we may
see with the new law, it is also far above
a $1 million exemption amount that
the law may revert to after this band-aid
bill becomes law. So if you find yourself
with an estate between these exemption
amounts, what should you do?
I've personally dealt with this issue by
drafting numerous formula clauses into
my clients' documents - with those for-
mulas dependent upon whether there is
or there is not an estate tax -- and how
that plays into the testamentary trusts that
my clients leave for their spouses, chil-
dren and other loved ones.
So the answer is not to sit tight and
do nothing. I believe that one should take
proactive steps based upon the law as it
exists today and our best guess at what
the law may become tomorrow.
Once the new law is passed and prac-
titioners have the opportunity to read
and analyze it is the time to visit with
your estate planning counsel to ensure
that your plan is up to date and is taking
advantage of any and all legal opportu-


nities to minimize taxes and to protect
wealth.
It's also important to keep in mind that
estate taxes are but a fraction of the plan-
ning that should go into a comprehensive
estate plan. A well drafted estate plan will
include disability protections and protec-
tion of the assets for the surviving spouse
from creditors and predators. When the
estate is ultimately distributed to children
and grandchildren, it's important to con-
sider the potential for our beneficiaries to
divorce, to experience creditor problems
of their own, the fiscal responsibility (or
lack thereof) of our loved ones, and other
such maladies. When these issues are
factored into a plan, the beneficiaries
are much less likely to lose their inheri-
tance to creditors, divorcing spouses, or
through sheer negligence.
As these laws are enacted and we've
had a chance to review them, I'll be pro-
viding more updates.

Annual Holiday Gatherings
May Reveal Signs Of Alzheimer's
he holidays offer families an opportunity to gather and spend time with loved
ones who they may only see occasionally during the year. While visiting, fam-
ily members might notice changes in a relative that raise questions about their
health. In fact, the number of people who express concern about a loved one's
health tends to increase after the holiday season.
Memory often changes as we grow older. But memory loss that disrupts daily life is
not a typical part of aging. It may be a symptom of Alzheimer's, a fatal brain disease
that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. The Alzheimer's
Association has developed 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's to help families recognize
the changes. They are:
1. Memory changes that disrupt daily life
2. Challenges in planning or solving problems
3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks
4. Confusion with time or place
5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
6. New problems with words in speaking or writing
7. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
8. Decreased or poor judgment
9. Withdrawal from work or social activities
10. Changes in mood and personality
Every individual may experience one or more of these signs in different degrees. If
you recognize any warning signs, the Alzheimer's Association recommends consulting
a doctor immediately. Early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or other dementias is an
important step to getting appropriate treatment, care and support services.
For more information on the warning signs of Alzheimer's disease or find a medi-
cal professional, call the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association
helpline of experts at 1-800-272-3900. The helpline is open 24 hours, seven days a
week, and will be available on Christmas and New Year's day.#

ASTD Southwest Florida
Chapter Recognized
he Southwest Florida Chapter of the American Society for Training &
Development (ASTD) was recognized for its submission to the ASTD Sharing
Our Success (SOS) program. The national SOS program identifies best prac-
tices among local ASTD chapters and uses them as models for other chapters.
Lisa Downs, chair of ASTD's Chapter Recognition Committee, said, "This recogni-
tion honors the Southwest Chapter's best practice that demonstrates its commitment
to managing a successful organization as well as advancing the learning and develop-
ment profession at the local level. We are excited to honor the chapter with ASTD's
SOS recognition."
Southwest Florida Chapter President Lorna Kibbey said, "Our chapter conducted
several meetings 'in the field' this past year as an alternative to traditional meeting sites
and topics. A number of members hosted on-site meetings at their organization facili-
ties to show attendees what is working in their training departments.
"Our goals were to increase participation in meetings, decrease cost per meeting,
and provide an opportunity to see what's happening in the industry - rather than just
hearing about it," Kibbey said. "We've been very fortunate to have a highly creative
membership with supportive member organizations."
