Sanibel Sea School Summer Starts
With Seahorses And Seagrass Beds
submitted by Evelyn Neill
Sanibel Sea School's summer camp is about exploring, discovering, and making
ocean things. When you're four years old or six years old, it's hard to come
up with something no one has ever seen or done before. But that is just what
campers did last week. They made a seagrass bed! To be sure, no one had to
snorkel through it to enjoy its beauty because the Sanibel Sea School seagrass bed

Learn About Island History At The

Historical Museum And Village
While you soak up the sunshine and enjoy the gulf waters during June and
July, why not take time out to soak up some island history? The Sanibel
Historical Museum and Village is open on Wednesday through Saturday
from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. through August 6. The Museum Gift Shop, featuring a
unique collection of all made in America merchandise, has been moved to the
Rutland House and will continue to operate from there during normal business
Visitors to Sanibel, as reported on the TripAdvisor travel website, have voted the
Sanibel Historical Museum and Village the #3 attraction on Sanibel and given the
museum a 5-star rating.
A step back in time" is the way the historical village is described by visitors. Seven
historic island buildings have been preserved and moved to a charming "village" setting
and are filled with artifacts and exhibits that chronicle the Calusa and Spanish periods
and tell stories about the pioneer families who farmed and fished the islands from the
1880s to 1940s. Visitors see a way of life that is long gone, except as preserved at
the historical village. Volunteer docents share island tales with visitors, and visitors, in
turn, enjoy sharing their own Sanibel stories.

Police Offer Tips
On Night Time
Bicycle Safety
national report recently released
found that Florida's roads are the
most dangerous in the country for
non-motorists, and Lee County ranks
fifth in the state.
Sanibel Chief of Police Bill Tomlinson
said, "Our two greatest concerns are that
bicyclists are riding at night without lights
and not obeying traffic signage at inter-
In light of this recent national report
and the recent fatalities in Lee County,
the Sanibel Police Department is remind-
ing everyone of the bicycle traffic law
regarding riding bicycles at night time and
requirements for lighting equipment.
It is important to remember that
Sanibel is a bicycle friendly community
with over 22 miles of shared use paths.
Because we encourage bicycle and
pedestrian activities, it is important that
all motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians
use due care and precautions to remain
safe. "It is our shared burdens as cyclists,
pedestrians, and motorists to take extra
care to be aware to protect against acci-
dents," said Tomlinson.
Over half of fatal bicycle crashes in
Florida occur after sunset. By Florida
law, if operating a bicycle between sunset
and sunrise you must be equipped with
a lamp on the front exhibiting a white
light visible from 500 feet to the front
and both a red reflector and a lamp on
the rear exhibiting a red light visible from
600 feet.

LED lamps can last many hours on
a set of batteries, but if you are using
battery powered lamps you should carry
spare batteries or mount an additional
lamp as a spare. Additional lighting is
permitted and recommended. Rear
reflector and tail lamps should be aimed
straight back.
Rules for riding at night:
* Cyclists and pedestrians should use
the shared bike paths where available.
* Don't ride in high traffic areas.
* Don't ride in unfamiliar areas at
night if possible. Scout out your route in
daylight first.
* If you start riding before it gets dark,
and plan to do ride after dark, be sure to
check your front and rear lights before
leaving home.
* At night there are generally fewer
drivers on the road but a larger percent-
age are impaired drivers.
* Flying insects can be a problem
especially around dusk. Carry a pair of
glasses with clear lenses to keep bugs out
of your eyes.
* If you are stopped at an intersec-
tion and a car approaches from the side,
angle your headlight slightly in that direc-
tion so the driver can see you.
* Motorists must be alert to bicycles
and pedestrians.
* Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians
must obey traffic signs and cross walks.
Remember to stay as visible as you
can, in addition to lights wear bright or
reflective (neon) clothing. Also, additional
helmet lights are recommended.
Chief Tomlinson said, "Our goal at
the Sanibel Police Department is public
safety. Please take the necessary precau-
tions to be safe"#

Sanibel Sea School

Madilyn Perreault balancing on her surfboard
hung upside down from the ceiling and if you shimmied along the floor on your back,
you could actually get the feeling of a snorkeling trip. There were starfish and seahors-
es, fish and jellyfish - all made by campers out of old sails and lattice.
But that was just the crowning project of a week of fun. The rest of the week was
filled with surfing and beach trips, seining and seahorse stories. There were horseshoe
crabs to be found and surfboards to master before the week was over. And lots of
sand, sunblock and water.
Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3 dedicated to a world in which all people under-
stand, value and care for the ocean.

Bible School Takes Big Apple Theme

Children taking part in Vacation Bible School at Sanibel Community Church against a
New York backdrop
Ninety-one children and 65 workers focused on the transforming work of
Jesus Christ at the 2011 Vacation Bible School at Sanibel Community
Church. Under the leadership of Kathy Cramer, director of Children and
Family Ministry at the church, the children took part in music, drama, games and
Bible Study, all in a New York City context.
The next adventure for children at Sanibel Community Church is their summer
camp, Camp Endunamao, July 21 to 24. The theme this year is Foundations of Faith.
The four-day, three-night camp includes swimming, hiking, crafts, movie nights, Bible
lessons by Pastor Daryl Donovan, and a family celebration on the final day of camp.
Camp Endunamao is for children who have completed grades 2 through 5. For
more information or to register, call 472-2684 or visit the church's website at www.

Healing Services

This Sunday
In 2011 Dr. Daryl Donovan, senior
pastor of Sanibel Community Church,
has been preaching through a Biblical
series entitled Foundations For Faith
At Home. On Sunday, June 26 the
foundational topic is healing. Does God
still miraculously heal people? What are
some of the Biblical principles regarding
healing? Following the message there
will be an opportunity to receive prayers
for healing at each of the services.
Even during the summer months
Sanibel Community Church offers three
opportunities for worship. At 8 a.m.

a traditional service is held concluding
with Communion. At 9 a.m. the church
celebrates a contemporary service. A
second traditional services occurs at
10:45 a.m.
Child care is available at all services,
with Sunday School for all ages at
10:45 a.m.
The June 26 services will conclude
with a Connection Luncheon at noon.
This is a great opportunity for fellowship
and meeting new friends. There will be
a salad bar and pasta lunch.
Sanibel Community Church is located
at 1740 Periwinkle Way (next to Jerry's
Market). For more information call 472-

into Tarpon Bay on Monday

Children Learn To Fish Local Waters
Summer is a great season to spend time on the water and the Sanibel-Captiva
Optimist Club has been helping some local youngsters do just that.
For seven Mondays this summer, fifth through eighth graders attending
Sanibel Recreation Center's summer program will have the opportunity to learn how
to fish local waters.
Each week the Optimist Junior Anglers' Club will test the waters at a different site
on Sanibel, using different skills and targeting different fish. For five of the seven weeks
the kids will fish from a variety of shore locations.
Bailey's General Store is donating the bait for these shore-fishing excursions. The
group will also make two trips out on the water at Tarpon Bay. Tarpon Bay Explorers
is providing bait, two pontoon boats and two fishing guides to take the Junior Anglers
out on the bay for each trip.
The first attempt at fishing Tarpon Bay was June 20 and it proved full of fun and
fish. Captain Steve Maddix had a group of seven boys, and the six girls fished with
Captain Andy Pollack. All together the group caught over 50 fish, including spotted
sea trout, redfish, and even a shark.4

Film Wins Award
Sanibel School 6th grader Sarah
Adler won big in the middle
school age group of the 2011 Lee
County Film Festival held on May 16.
This was the biggest year ever for the
red carpet event, with 350 films entered
and over 1,000 students participating
from public and private schools in Lee
Sarah's film, The Music of Danny
Morgan, won first place in the music
video category as well as the Best
in Show award. The video features
Morgan's song Sunset Time from the
CD It's Always Summer
Sarah set the song to island scenes
she filmed on Sanibel and Captiva as well
as some footage filmed in Hawaii last
summer. One of the stumbling blocks to
making a music video is getting permis-
sion from the artist and the publisher for
the rights to use a song without paying
a hugh royalty fee, Sarah said. When
asked, Danny Morgan generously allowed
Sarah the use of the song in making the
award-winning video.
Sarah also won first place in
Documentary category for her film, My
Sister Carly in the U.S. Navy. She origi-
nally made this film for the Veteran's Day
assembly at The Sanibel School. Sarah
also took home second place in the

Hands Across The Sand

On Area Beaches June 25
The legions demanding clean energy solutions won't be hard to see June 25 at
area beaches. Hundreds are expected to take part in Hands Across the Sand
at local beaches as part of this international effort designed to raise aware-
ness of opposition to offshore drilling and in support of alternative energy. The
movement arose in response to last year's Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the still
existing lack of firmer guidelines and proven safety measures. Tens of thousands will
attend gatherings across the globe.
Local residents from across Southwest Florida's counties are teaming up with the
local Sierra Club, Lee County Parks & Recreation, the towns of Cape Coral and
Fort Myers Beach, and the cities of Sanibel, Naples, and Fort Myers to support this
Those who want to participate should contact the organizers listed below to find
out particulars for their beach area. Group organizers are asking people to arrive no
later than 11 a.m.; all will join hands at noon for 15 minutes.
This is a peaceful statement to government officials that it is time to look at the
subsidies our tax dollars are paying for, and to urge them to put our tax dollars
into renewable energies instead of in the pockets of oil companies. It is a day for
all to come together and enjoy what we could possibly lose, as was lost last year in
Louisiana due to the oil spill. While our area was spared for the most part last year,
we are a tourist destination, and the devastation of the smallest oil spill, even with
cleanup efforts, would hurt our local economy considerably for years and years -
not to mention our quality of life. Our government needs to focus on clean energy
and create clean jobs. Clean energy will help to stop our nation's dependency on
foreign oil.
What to do at the event on June 25
Step 1: Go to the beach at 11 a.m. for one hour, rain or shine.
Step 2: Join hands for 15 minutes at noon, forming lines in the sand against oil
drilling in your coastal waters. Say "yes" to clean energy.
Step 3: Leave only your footprints.

Shell Museum

Trip To Mote Marine
The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum is planning a summer journey to the Mote
Marine Laboratory in Sarasota on Saturday, July 16.
Participants will board a bus at the museum at 8 a.m. for the ride to the labo-
ratory, where they will spend the day learning fascinating facts about marine life and
their surroundings.
Visitors will be able to explore and eventually unravel the many mysteries of the sea
by examining touch pools and viewing working labs and high-tech interactive exhibits
that showcase the world-acclaimed research performed at Mote. Guests will encounter
sharks, dolphins, manatees and sea turtles, along with dozens of other aquatic species.
The Mote Marine Laboratory adventure will include information about the Dolphin
Bay project, a live mollusk exhibit, a shark presentation and an aquarium tour. The trip
will be led by the Shell Museum's public program specialist, Diane Thomas, who highly
recommends the outing for anyone who is curious about sea life.
"Considering the price of gasoline, this trip is a cost-effective way for families to
spend the day learning about the Florida environment," Thomas said. "We are proud
to partner with Mote Marine for a fun, educational opportunity and look forward to
sharing the day with families. Mollusks are an important part of the marine environ-
ment, which is why we appreciate the opportunity to learn more about the creatures
who share the waters with mollusks and the shells they make."
The cost is $50 for adults and $48 for children ages five to 12, which includes the
bus transportation and Mote Marine Laboratory admission.
The bus will return to Sanibel around 5 p.m.
Lunch is not included; however, the aquarium's Deep Sea Diner and The Old Salty
Dog Cafe offer great views and outdoor seating. Families that would like to eat at The
Old Salty Dog Cafe need to indicate that when making their reservation.
To sign up for the trip or for more information, call Thomas at The Bailey-
Matthews Shell Museum at 395-2233. The deadline for reservations is July 9.4

New 'Ding" Darling iNature Trail
Is First Among Nation's Refuges

Former Sanibel student Lars Bredahl works with Supervisory Refuge Range Toni Westland
on developing the refuge's new iNature Trail.
Using QR-code-scan technology, iNature Trail is first of its kind.
If you have a smart phone that downloads apps, you're ready to hit J.N.
"Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge's latest innovation when completed
later this month. Designed to appeal to the next generation's techie side to get them
outside, the iNature Trail along Wildlife Drive has two components - one for kids and
one for adults.
The iNature Trail uses a set of QR (Quick Response) codes that smart phone users
can scan with free downloadable apps such as Neoscan or QR Scan.
Similar in appearance to common bar codes, QR codes typically send scanners to

Web sites for more information. The iNature trail goes a step further and incorporates
short, engaging YouTube videos, making it more interactive. Users experience a tour
unique from any other current refuge offering.
For instance, one one of the 20 QR codes along the iNature Trail takes you to a
YouTube video of Refuge Manager Paul Tritaik welcoming guests to the refuge, while
another jumps to the "Ding" Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS)
home page,
The iNature signs will be easily recognizable along the trail and can be accessed
while walking, biking or driving along Wildlife Drive.
This is the first such interactive trail in the 550-plus national wildlife refuge system,
and Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland will be giving a presentation about the
innovation to a National Wildlife Refuge System conference in early July.
"We also believe this to be the first interactive QR wildlife trail in the nation," said
"While QR codes are not yet known to everyone, they are starting to create a buzz
in the marketing world with the people who use them," said DDWS Executive Director
Birgie Vertesch. "Special thanks goes to former Sanibel student Lars Bredahl, who
took on this project as part of his college studies at Elon University in North Carolina."
"We would not have known the power of this media without Lars' involvement on
this project," said Westland. "Currently nearly 40 percent of U.S. adults own a smart
phone, and it is estimated that there will be more online visits from mobile devices
than from personal computers by 2014. Lars is moving our refuge into the mobile
world and helping us educate thousands of people about wildlife and its protection in a
whole new way."
"The iNature Trail is a significant advancement in nature interpretation," said
Tritaik. "It not only takes advantage of the latest improvements in communication tech-
nology, but it is environmentally responsible because it allows us to reduce paper waste
from brochures. We are very proud to introduce this exciting opportunity for our tech-
nologically savvy visitors to learn about and enjoy the wildlife at 'Ding' Darling National
Wildlife Refuge."
Funding for the trail was made possible by private contributions to the "Ding"
Darling Wildlife Society (DDWS). As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, DDWS
works to support the refuge's mission of conservation, wildlife and habitat protection,
research, and public education through charitable donations and Refuge Nature Shop

Switch It Up And
Go Shark Fishing
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
W ith the
K. / best fish-
S V ing tides
around the full
S. moon last week
S l' all coming late
. .. afternoon to early
morning, fishing in
the bay has been
a little tough. Add
to that the big rafts of floating grass and
dirty water throughout the sound and it
was not an easy week.
On four tarpon trips I did not have
a single hook-up even though I did find
a few scattered rolling fish. They simply
would not eat a bait. Bay and beach fish-
ing for tarpon during periods of high tides
at the passes always gets harder too.
The most consistent place I have been
spotting rolling tarpon has been around
the causeway bridges. This area seems to
have some of the cleanest water in town.
The tarpon have been mixed in with
the huge schools of glass minnows and
Spanish mackerel.

A big lemon shark coming boat side just before being released

The bigger schools of tarpon that were
here in April and the beginning of May
with the early warm water temperatures
have all but gone. Things have not been
consistent like they usually are. It almost
seems the fish never came into the sound
in any large numbers as in prior years.
This could be due to the dirty water and

the lack of the big rafts of threadfins
which we usually have. Things do change
day to day but I think until the summer
rain pattern gets started and begins to
flush and re-oxygenate the bay, tarpon
fishing will stay pretty much the same.
Catch-and-release shark fishing on
the other hand has been my go-to when
tarpon fishing is not producing. I have
been switching it up and bending the
rods on sharks. They are a great under-
rated gamefish and pretty easy to catch
most days with some of the varieties in
our waters being extremely hard fighters.
Once we get them close to the boat we
snap a few pictures and cut the leader as
close to the hook as we dare.
While fishing Rocky Channel one
morning last week, the shark bite was on
fire for about a hour. Every cut bait we
put out got hit with either a five-foot-plus
spinner shark or a six-foot-plus bull shark.
Heading out with just the tarpon tackle
on board, it's been easy to hook into
some real sea monsters out there. The

key to catching shark for me has been
fishing areas around the passes and deep-
er slews coming in from the passes on
the incoming tide. During the incoming
tide the water is clearer and cooler and
seems to be when these sharks have been
feeding best. I have been targeting areas
around Captiva and Redfish passes in the
six- to nine-foot depth range.
Cut fresh mullet and ladyfish has been
my bait of choice to get in on the shark
bite. I rig my large tarpon spinning outfits
with a large circle hook and about six feet
of 100# mono leader. Chumming never
hurts but it has not really been needed.
Simply pitch out the baits, put them in
the rod holders and wait until the drag
screams. You do get quite a few cut off
using only mono for leader, but you will
get 10 times more bites than if you fish
with wire leader. A cut bait circle hook
will catch the shark in the corner of the
mouth, keeping the leader away from the
sharp teeth.

CROW Case Of The Week:
Baby Bat
by Emilie Alfino
r D iane Thomas
I Jof South Fort
- 1.k.Myers didn't
S know what she
had found in front
Sof her house after
a windy day took
down a bunch of
dead palm fronds.
SWe always find
birds in there and I
never disturb them," Thomas said. This
time she found a young bird and left it
where she thought the mother might
return to care for it. When that didn't
happen, she returned to the spot and
heard chirping noises coming from the
nearby culvert less than an arm's length
away. "I reached in and felt a bunch of
fur. It wasn't moving and I turned it over
and saw a dead mother bat with three
babies clinging to her. One baby was
deceased. I noticed something poking
up underneath the mother, pushing on
her with their hands."
Thomas took her charges to the
Coral Veterinary Clinic as she knew they
transported animals to CROW. "I think
the mother bat got blown out of the
tree," she said. "Some little birds were
blown out, too. It was very windy."
The two surviving baby bats arrived
at CROW June 1 on an adult female
who was deceased. The babies were

Above and right, baby bat being fed

clinging onto the mother bat. They
weighed 2.9 grams, about the weight
of two tissues. "They were the size of
the end of my thumb, their eyes were
closed, and they had very little fur," said
Dr. Amber.
They were a little bit cold but oth-
erwise their body condition was pretty
good, according to Dr. Amber; they
were pink and not too dehydrated. "I
think mom had just died from some
trauma," she said, which is consistent
with Thomas' story of how she found
The tiny creatures were northern
yellow bats, which are light in color.
They grow to dark brown with yellow

highlights. They also love to roost in
Spanish moss, which caused a bit of a
problem in the recovery, as you'll see.
They were given .15 milliliters of sub-
cutaneous fluids. "We offered them flu-
ids via a syringe with a tiny nipple and
they took that pretty well," Dr. Amber
Because the patients were so tiny,
Dr. Amber took them home that first
night so they could have an overnight
feeding and another at 5:30 a.m. This
is the usual practice when the clinic
receives mammals so young their eyes
are still closed.
The hard part was keeping them
warm enough. "They didn't always want
to lie on the heating pad," she said.
"They wanted to climb to the top of

ISLAND SUN - JUNE 24, 2011 17
the plastic aquarium." A washcloth had
been placed over the side of the aquar-
ium so the babies would have a vertical
substance to cling to. This is where
the bats' habit of roosting in Spanish
moss interfered somewhat with keep-
ing the babies warm. "Mom normally
goes out at night to feed and at that
time the babies would climb into the
moss for cover and warmth," Dr. Amber
explained. This took them off the heat-
ing pad.
Sadly, one of the babies was lost that
first night. Dr. Amber speculated it may
have suffered the same trauma as the
mother even though it didn't show.
On the second day, clinic staff
increased the percentage of milk in the
diluted formula being fed to the surviv-
ing baby. He did very well and was a
champ at nursing.
Anyone caring for a mammal this
young has to be extremely careful not
to give it too much liquid food too fast.
The danger is the possibility of sucking
some of it down into the lungs. This
takes a lot of time and patience.
Staff Rehabilitator Nicky Talianko
and Dr. Amber split duties as to who
would take the baby bat home each
night. "And then we just kept going,"
Dr. Amber said. "We fed him essentially
as much as he wanted, .3 milliliters at a
time, which is still not very much." Even
so, he started putting on weight and
soon got up to 4.9 grams, a significant
increase from his 2.9 gram weight upon

Senior Assistant Director Named
At Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum

Amanda Stirn

Dr. Jose Leal, director of The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, announced that
Amanda Stirn has joined the museum's leadership team as its first senior
assistant director of operations and administration.
As the senior assistant director, Stirn will oversee the financial operations of the
museum and assist with administrative functions and other management duties.
"We are really delighted that we have Amanda on the shell museum team now,"
said Dr. Leal. "She has a good personality and she gets along well with everyone
already. What set her apart from the rest of the (applicants) was her organization

in her communications, her experience with not-for-profits, and the fact that she's
highly proficient in QuickBooks."
Stirn, who has a degree in business administration and holds several financial
certifications, comes to Southwest Florida from Yakima, Washington. Her back-
ground includes accounting, auditing, office management, business development,
and contract management and analysis. She plans to use her experience to help the
museum continue to improve and grow as a Sanibel tourist destination - including
fundraising efforts, communication advances and customer service enhancements.
"I want the (team members) to feel as welcome and enthusiastic and on fire
about the mission of the museum as I do," Stirn said. "If anything, I'll carry on the
torch for the foundation that was built many years ago. I think the educational pro-
grams are wonderful, and the access to information (about shells) is impressive."
The Alexandria, Louisiana native has also lived in Guam, Germany, New
Mexico, and several parts of Florida. When she is not playing the guitar and piano
or painting pictures, she and her husband enjoy spending time on the family boat
and combing the beach for shells.#

We can't wait to see what creative things
people come up with," said Dave Harner,
deputy director of Lee County Parks &
Finalists will have their videos featured

five videos. From there, people will be
able to vote for their favorite video to

Shark Fishing
Some of the sharks we got into last
week were in the five- to seven-foot
range, with a huge seven-foot lemon
being the biggest we brought in. We did
have some real freight trains that ended
up cutting the leader. The majority of the
sharks feeding right now are lemons, bulls
and blacktips, along with a few spinners.
Though it's not tarpon fishing, it's always
fun to tangle with a hundred-pound-plus
Trout fishing around the grass bars
from Redfish Pass to Captiva Pass has
also been active. Whitebaits, live shrimp
or even soft plastic jigs have made for an
easy limit. This bite has also been best on
the incoming tide. Mixed in with the trout
are ladyfish and Spanish mackerel. This
is a great way to start the day, getting as
many ladyfish as you want so you can
move up the food chain later to some

shark action.
Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing
local waters since he moved to Sanibel
in 1980. He now lives in St. James City
and works as a back country fishing
guide. If you have comments or ques-

Plant Smart
Havana Skullcap
by Gerri Reaves
H avana skullcap (Scutellaria
havanensis) is a native wildflower
listed as endangered in the state of
Florida. In the wild, it grows in southern-
most Florida and the West Indies.
The city of Havana is part of the com-
mon and botanical names because the
plant was first discovered there in 1760.
Scutellaria, Latin for small saucer or .
dish, refers to the tiny bowl- or helmet-like -
protuberance on the calyx.
Also called tropical skullcap, this pretty
flower is classified as an herb because it is
a member of the mint family.
Tiny purple flowers appear throughout
the year, but most occur during spring and
autumn. Blooms are rarely seen during the
summer months.
The flowers are striking for their larger
three-lobed lower lip with two white stripes.
The tiny paired oval leaves have a fuzzy
texture and the stems are covered with
short hairs. Havana skullcap, a low-growing member
Havana skullcap's attraction for bees, of the mint family, is endangered in the
butterflies, and birds make it an excellent state of Florida
addition to a wildlife garden.
It forms clumps and usually reaches less than six inches tall, with flowering stems
reaching a bit higher. It is also drought-tolerant and can be used as a low-maintenance
Give it partial to full sun and well-drained soil. It will spread but is not invasive.
Native to pine rocklands and accustomed to alkaline soil, it will grow even in coral-
rock walls.
If neatness is a priority, the plant can be trimmed back to the ground annually.
It will reseed, but can be cultivated by clump division and cuttings too.

The tiny saucer-like protuberance on the calyx is distinctive

28 ISLAND SUN - JUNE 24, 2011

My Stars ***
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You feel
ready to face up to a major change, although
it might involve some risks. A once-dubious
family member comes around and offers sup-
port and encouragement.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Move
forward with your plans, despite discourag-
ing words from those who underestimate the
Bovine's strong will. Your keen instincts will
guide you well.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A misun-
derstanding is easily cleared up. Then go ahead
and enjoy some fun and games this week. A
Libra might have ideas that merit serious con-
sideration for the future.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might
feel as if you're in an emotional pressure cook-
er, but the situation is about to change in your
favor. Take time out for some well-earned fun.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) A shift in your
workplace responsibilities creates resentment
among some co-workers. Deal with it before it
becomes a threat to your success on the job.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Expect some surprises in what you thought
was one of your typically well-planned sched-
ules. Deal with them, and then enjoy some
lighthearted entertainment.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Be
careful: What appears to be a solid financial
opportunity might have some hidden risks
attached. A hazy personal matter needs to be
cleared up.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
It's a good time to strengthen ties with fam-
ily and friends. You might feel unsure about a
recent workplace decision, but time will prove
you did the right thing.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Just when you thought your
relationship was comfortable and even predict-
able, your partner or spouse could spring a
potentially life-changing surprise on you.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Your usually generous self is overshad-
owed by your equally strong suspicious nature.
You might be judging things too harshly. Keep
an open mind.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February
18) Love and romance dominate the week.
Married Aquarians enjoy domestic harmony,
while singles could soon be welcoming over-
tures from loving Leos.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) An
old health problem recurs, but it is soon dealt

* On June 30, 1859, Jean-Francois
Gravelet, a Frenchman known professionally
as Emile Blondin, becomes the first daredevil
to walk across Niagara Falls on a tightrope.
Wearing pink tights and a yellow tunic,
Blondin crossed a cable about 2 inches in
diameter and 1,100-feet long with only a bal-
ancing pole to protect him from plunging into
the dangerous rapids 160 feet below.
* On June 28, 1862, Confederate raiders
make a daring capture of a commercial ves-
sel on Chesapeake Bay. Conspirators boarded
the St. Nicholas as paying passengers with

* On June 29, 1967, blond-bombshell
actress Jayne Mansfield is killed instantly

the truck due to a nearby machine emitting a
thick white fog used to spray mosquitoes.
* On July 2, 1977, Hollywood composer

* The giant Pacific octopus, the largest
octopus in the world, is a prolific breeder.
Extremely prolific. The female lays approxi-
mately 56,000 eggs, all at once. And
since, according to experts, the population
is stable, of those 56,000 eggs, only two
survive to reproduce.
* It was Franklin Pierce, the 14th presi-
dent of the United States, who ordered the
White House's first bathtub in the 1850s.
* Harry Houdini is best known as a
magician and an escape artist, but he also
performed amazing stunts. In the early
days of aviation, he flew in an airplane to
an altitude of 3,000 feet, then jumped off
the plane onto another one - while wear-
ing handcuffs.
* A recent study conducted by research-
ers at a university in Sweden found that if
a person has to commute longer than 45
minutes to work, he or she is 40 percent
more likely to get divorced.
* There are more languages and dialects
spoken in India than in any other country
in the world: in excess of 1,600 at last
* If you're planning a trip to Marrakesh,
Morocco, be sure to visit the Koutoubiya
minaret. In 1195 Sultan Yakub al Mansur
commanded that the minaret be built in
thanksgiving for a military victory, and
the tower is lovely. The structure's unique
attribute, however, is not visible - it's olfac-
tory. When the minaret was being built,
960 sacks of musk were mixed in with the

mortar, and the odor can still be detected

CROW Picture Show Is Fridays


JUNE 24, 2011

Injured gopher tortoise being grazed

The CROW Picture Show offers an insider's look at why critters come to CROW,
and features photos of the wild animals who wind up there.
Last year, Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Southwest Florida's only
wildlife hospital, cared for 4,111 sick, injured, and orphaned animals. Of the more than
200 different species, 54 percent were birds, 38 percent were mammals, and eight per-
cent were reptiles/amphibians/ invertebrates.
Due to restrictions imposed by governmental agencies, CROW cannot allow visitors
to view patients in person. But in this 30-minute presentation visitors can see photos of
current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer.
The CROW Picture Show is presented each Friday at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing

ISLAND SUN - JUNE 24, 2011 3B
Incoming President Rick Siders and Fran Cameron, Hugh's wife, presented a
$1,750 donation to a Friends Who Care representative Tom Louwers. Each year
Lions' Club Charities raise money for deserving causes, including Friends Who Care
and other local organizations that provide help and relief for local families.
Hugh, who was involved with the Lions for over 20 years, believed that Friends
Who Care was a great organization and he volunteered with them, helping wrap
Christmas gifts for many years.
"He was very dedicated to the community," Siders said. "He was a great volunteer
not only to us, but to many other organizations including SCCF. He was very active
in our fundraising events and the club's treasurer. It's especially meaningful to me,
because he brought me into the Lions Club."
Louwers explained that this donation will help sponsor back-to-school supplies at
the end of the summer. Many of the families that work on the islands lose some of
their income once the season winds down, so more requests for assistance start com-
ing in especially when the school season starts again. "When you see my list where
some kids are being asked to spend as much as $200 on supplies, and where are
some of these families going to get that kind of money?" Louwers said.
Last year, the organization helped support 120 children and 40 seniors. Louwers
said that in addition to school supplies and gifts, they also help by purchasing food,
musical instruments and other extra items that many of these families can't afford.
"There are lots of good stories coming out of this," he said.
For the last 28 years, Friends Who Care, Inc. has been assisting families and indi-
viduals in the Sanibel community facing crisis-related situations. Friends Who Care
works on an anonymous basis, through information from the police department,
churches, schools and caring individuals in the community. They provide a private and
personalized service to the individuals they assist. They also run a gift program during
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 472-5152.4

The Sanibel Captiva Chamber of
Commerce presented a check for
$1,000 to the Friends of 4th of July
Fireworks show to help ensure that the
annual celebration will be a spectacular
The show is a major draw for tourists
as well as islanders. The fireworks begin at
dusk and will be launched from the bayside
end of Bailey Road. Thousands attended
last year's show, many watching from the
causeway islands.
"The fireworks show has been around
for years, and we want to help keep it
that way" said Sanibel-Captiva Chamber
of Commerce President Ric Base. "Our
visitors and residents have been plan-
ning their celebrations for months and the
fireworks show is an integral part of their
plans. We have all seen the appeals for
financial donations in the newspapers over
the past month or so and the board of the
chamber of commerce made the decision
to make this substantial contribution to
secure this event."
This is the second year Sharon and
Judy Michie have headed up the "Friends"
campaign after the fireworks were cut from
the City of Sanibel budget in 2009.
To encourage more donations, the
chamber is featuring the Friends of the 4th
of July in it e-Blast and e-Connect to over
700 members.

Local Filmmaker To Raffle
Sanibel Lighthouse Scale Model

Replica of the Sanibel Lighthouse inside
Bailey's General Store

Rusty Farst, left, with Richard Johnson,
owner of Bailey's General Store pose in
front of the replica

If you've recently visited Bailey's General Store and noticed an accurate replica of
the Sanibel Lighthouse standing prominently in the front of the store, and won-
dered what was that all about, then wonder no more.
Rusty Farst, a Sanibel filmmaker, together with Bailey's General Store, is selling
$10 raffle tickets for the model lighthouse and the lucky winner gets to take it home.

ISLAND SUN - JUNE 24, 2011 5B
Part of the proceeds will go to start a fund that will pay for repainting the real Sanibel
The replica is a 1/10th scale model of the well known and much loved Sanibel
landmark, a sign that we have returned to our most favorite place as we come over
the causeway or visit Lighthouse Beach.
The replica's creator Ken Idle spent nearly 60 hours welding and assembling the
lighthouse, which is accurate in almost every detail. Idle has been a welder for over 45
years and does specialty work on boats and other marine structures. The lighthouse
was built with aviation aluminum for its lightness and strength, stands about 10 feet
tall, weighs only about 70 pounds and is the winner's to keep. The additional perk is
that the light at the top actually works and due to the chosen material, will never rust.
"It's a great opportunity to own a piece of Sanibel history, but in much smaller
form" said Farst. "There are so many creative things that someone can do with it, but
more importantly, it will help us repaint the original."
More than half of the available 700 tickets have been sold. Tickets are available at
Bailey's General Store or from Farst, whom you can contact at rustyfarst@rustyfarst.

Noordam To Cadiz,

A Mishap Causes Delay

The front office staff can answer any questions, often with the right answer

by Ted Tyson
After leaving Ponta Delgada on
time at 5 p.m. on May 5, we
sailed eastward toward the
Spanish mainland anticipating reaching
Cadiz at 7 a.m. on May 8 and having
a full Sunday to see the city or to take
tours to Seville. Cadiz is believed to be
the oldest city on the Iberian Peninsula.
Archaeologists estimate the first

Phoenician merchants landed on the
shore in 1100 BC. After them came the
Romans, Moors and others, but it was
the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s that
almost ruined the city.
Unlike its better-known sister city
to the north-northeast, Seville, Cadiz
on a Sunday is virtually closed down
especially before noon. However, one
can still admire the lavish buildings that

The map to the underground cave and river
represent the colonial legacy begun with
Christopher Columbus' first Atlantic
crossing in 1492 (which occurred some
500 years after the New World was dis-
covered and settled by Viking Warriors).
Cadiz's various cathedrals house origi-
nal works by Goya, Murillo, El Greco and
Zurbaran. In Santa Catalina Cathedral,
the unfinished work, The Marriage
of Saint Catherine, seemingly awaits
the return of the hand of its creator
Bartolome Murillo, who unfortunately fell
from a support beam and died before he
could complete his masterpiece. We also
saw the Cathedral de Santa Cruz and the
facade of the old Hospital de Mujeres as
we walked the city. Peggy and I, having
previously visited Seville, declined the
opportunity to ride in a bus for three
hours to revisit Seville, but many first-time
visitors did take one of the several tours
offered by Holland America and all seem
to have enjoyed themselves.
At 5 p.m. promptly, the Noordam
was unleashed from her dock and began
her eastward trek to cruise majestically
between the Pillars of Hercules, the leg-
endary guardians of the entrance to the
Mediterranean Sea. Then she would sail
past and just to the north of the famed
Rock of Gibraltar where the Union Jack,
the flag of the United Kingdom, still
proudly flies on her way to the next port
of call, Almeria.
We sailed through the Pillars at dusk
and cruised by The Rock at night so the
beauty, strength, and immense size of
it was not as apparent as it would have
been had we gone by during daylight.
However, even at night The Rock is a
magnificent sight, and in and of itself and
because of its great history Gibraltar is
well worth visiting for a few days at the
very least. It is amazing and remains, as
in WW II, impenetrable. You could say it
is ... solid as a rock.
Almeria is a really pretty city. At 9
a.m. the Noordam docked practically
downtown, and Peggy and I visited many
beautiful and interesting areas of the city.
La Chanca the former Jewish Quarter,
the Alcazaba Fortress situated high on a
hill above the city was built by the Caliph
of Cordoba in the 10th Century. The
Alcazaba was later turned into a museum
after the defeat of the Moors and holds
many Islamic artifacts on display. Other

notable places we visited: the Cathedral
of Almeria, whose corner towers were
redesigned into cannon turrets for the
protection of the city; the Church of the
Virgin Del Mar; and the Moorish Cisterns
just southwest of the Plaza Manuel P.
The city is easy to walk in, and except
for the long walk up to the Alcazaba
which wasn't a minor effort for me,
Peggy and I had a grand time walking
and talking with the people, many of
whom spoke very good "American," and
exploring for several hours, before we
returned to the ship.
Other friends we met on the ship
opted for one of the many tours to
Granada, Cabo de Gata and Nijar, or
Mojacar a small mountain village, and
they all seemed to be quite satisfied with
their choices.
Upon our return we learned that
the ship could not depart as scheduled.
During a practice exercise of one of the
ship's lifeboats, something had gone
awry and the lifeboat had fallen onto the
Deck 3 guardrail and then into the water
and partially submerged. Luckily no crew
members and no passengers had been
near the lifeboat while the exercise was
being conducted, so no one had been
injured. But the Noordam could not
depart until the lifeboat had been recov-
ered from the water and the ship recerti-
fied by Lloyd's of London, the maritime
insurer, as to the safety and adequacy of
the remaining lifeboats to hold the num-
bers of passengers and crew aboard.
Luckily, a Lloyd's representative was
nearby in Spain, and he hurried to the
ship by car, conducted his examinations,
certified the emergency lifeboat equip-
ment, the repair of the railing damage,
and provided the requisite insurance doc-
uments to allow the Noordam to depart,
late, for the next port, Valencia.
On the Noordam we waved goodbye
to Almeria as we sat in the Vista dining
room enjoying a four-course gourmet
meal with wine. Our server advised that
later in the cruise he and his associates
would be performing their native dances
and songs for the entertainment of the
ship's guests and he was very cordial in
inviting us to attend. We did attend the

the Internet platform creates an equal

When a business decides to use web

marketing plan begins with an audit of
current business practices and research
of product or services being marketed.

the potential target audiences in your

Mary Anne Banta said rocker Steven Tyler resurrected the fad by wearing the
feather extensions on American Idol. Now they're a sensation.
Made from real rooster feathers, they are colored and come in various shapes
and many colors, singly and in bundles. Banta said you can wash your hair without
removing them and they can be curled and flat-ironed. They are re-usable and can
be moved around.
The feathers are attached with a microbead that's crimped onto the hair. Cost if
$15 for the first and $10 for the second and subsequent feathers.
"It's been amazing. We have done lots," said Banta, adding that they're popular
not just with the young but with the "young at heart."

in search of precious gems.
We'll start in a land down under,
Australia. With its huge area and range
of geological environments, Australia
produces a number of precious met-
als and gemstones. Silver, gold, copper,
diamonds, opals and sapphires were dis-
coveries of major economic importance.
Other gemstones that are mined include
jade, emerald, garnet, zircon, quartz and
Mining contributed significantly to
preventing potential bankruptcy for the
early colonies in Australia. Silver and cop-

the 1840s, leading to the export of ore
and the immigration of skilled miners and

The first economic minerals discov-

was soon overshadowed by the discovery
of copper. In 1851, gold was found near
New South Wales. Weeks later, gold was
found in the newly-established colony of
Australian gold rushes, in particular the
Victorian Gold Rush, had a major last-
ing impact on Victoria and on Australia
as a whole. The gold rush colored every
aspect of Australian society, and elements
of it are still clearly visible today. The
influx of wealth that gold brought soon
made Victoria Australia's richest colony
by far, and Melbourne its largest city.
Australia's population changed dra-
matically as a result. In 1851, the popula-
tion was 437,655; a decade later, it was
Although most Victorian gold fields
were exhausted by the end of the 19th
century and much of the profit was sent
back to the United Kingdom, sufficient
wealth remained to fund substantial devel-
opment of industry and infrastructure.
There have been many diamond
occurrences recorded in Australia but the
largest and most economic deposit to
date is the Argyle mine in the Kimberley
region of Western Australia, which pro-
duces a huge quantity of stones each
year for the international market. Most
are used in industry, and only about five
percent are suitable for gemstones. The
Argyle mine is unique for its rare pink-
to-red diamonds that form a minute but
dependable percentage of its production.

Gardenhire's Managing Magic
Has The Twins Back In Contention
by Ed Frank
he Major League baseball season may be less than
| one-half completed, but my vote for American League
L Manager of the Year would be for Ron Gardenhire of the
Minnesota Twins.
Gardenhire, in his 10th season at the helm of the Twins
with six American League Central Division titles to his credit, is
probably doing his best managing to date in a trouble-plagued
season that is beyond belief.
As late as June 1, the Twins were 17-37, 161/2 games out
of first place and owners of the worst record in baseball.
But look at them now!
When this week began, the Twins had won seven straight, 14 of 16 games and
had climbed back to within eight games of first.
There's no question that the Twins' early-season struggles stem from injuries
forcing Gardenhire to field a host of minor leaguers to fill the gaps. Thirteen players
have been on the disabled list and the season isn't even three months old.
And seven still remain on the shelf - right-fielder Jason Kubel, left-fielder Denard
Span, first-baseman Justin Morneau, third-baseman Danny Valencia, designated hit-
ter Jim Thome, and pitchers Kevin Slowey and Joe Nathan.
Kubel was among the top American League hitters when he went down with a
left foot sprain.
While starting pitching was a big question mark as the season began, Twins start-
ers have posted an 11-2 record in the past 16 games with a sparkling 1.86 ERA.
Also on the positive side is the return last week of All-Star catcher Joe Mauer
and second-baseman Tsuyoshi Nishioka. Both had been out since early April, Mauer
with leg weakness and Nishioka with a broken leg.
The biggest problem remaining is the same as last year - the health of former
MVP Morneau. His 2010 season ended last July 7 with a concussion. This year it's
a left wrist strain.
Thome picked up the slack for Morneau last year and hopefully he can help
again when he returns from the DL.
Gardenhire won his first AL Manager of the Year Award last season with a team
that posted a 94-68 record and was the first team to earn a playoff spot.
With his team's early-season misery, it's nearly impossible he can match that

But in my book, he's already the AL Manager of the Year.
Miracle Eliminated In First-Half Race
Despite Monday night's 6-3 victory over the Palm Beach Cardinals, the Fort
Myers Miracle were eliminated in the season's first-half championship race in the
Florida State League South Division.
Fort Myers, 34-34 for the season, saw their chances lost when the St. Lucie
Mets, 36-32, beat Charlotte to remain two games in front with only two to play. St.
Lucie clinched the title by holding the tie-breaker.
The second-place finish by Manager Jake Mauer's squad was a repeat of second
place in the second half of last season.0

Minnesota Twins Present Check
Jack Nelson of spring training community relations for the Minnesota Twins
Baseball Club, recently presented a check for $3,735 to Habitat for Humanity
of Lee and Hendry Counties. The club, its players and employees provide
resources, memorabilia, volunteer hours and cash grants to assist more than 5,000
nonprofit organizations and fundraisers throughout the upper midwest and south-
west Florida.
Nelson works with various charities in fundraising throughout Lee County and has
a favorite fundraiser. He enjoys selecting nonprofit organizations and then gives each
the opportunity to attend four home games during spring training. They are given the
opportunity to sell raffle tickets for miscellaneous Twins memorabilia and other donat-
ed items. The proceeds from the sale of the raffle tickets are divided equally among
the four charities. This year's recipients were: Lee Cancer Care, Harry Chapin Food
Bank, Habitat for Humanity, and Hispanic American Business Alliance.
The gift to Habitat for Humanity allows Habitat to provide a hand up in the com-
munity with the ultimate goal of eliminating substandard housing.
Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties' mission is to provide affordable
housing to low-income individuals with zero interest mortgages. Partnering families
must commit to 250 sweat equity hours, pay $1,200 toward closing costs, and qualify
for a mortgage. For further information call 652-0434 or visit www.habitat4humanity.

It ,f ^ system? Contrary

is not refrigerant-
based problems.
The most fre-
quent reason for down time is electrical
in nature. With the average home having
over 300 surges per year, you can see
how this could be a problem. Especially
for those of us who live on Sanibel, it is a
constant battle for our power company to
keep the grid in good working order.
Many major home appliances, includ-
ing our air conditioners, rely more on
solid state electronics to operate than
ever before. While this is a good thing,
it still comes with a price. These controls
are also more susceptible to power fluc-
tuations than ever before. So back to the
title, the way to protect your investment
is through surge protection.
Surge protection can be achieved
through many different ways. You can
buy those little surge protection strips
for your pluggable appliances and most
stores. However, for the larger stuff such

as your air conditioner, you are going
to need to have an electrician install an
inline surge protection on the electrical

expensive investment.
If you really like the idea, you can
even take this one step further and have
a surge protection system installed for
your entire house. That will cover all the
circuits in your home.

my favorite topic of paying more now to
save yourself the money and the hassles

School Smart
by Shelley M.
Greggs, NCSP
A s children
grow into
Lk their teen
years, one can
see that they are
developing better
thinking skills. This
advancement is
generally referred
to as cognitive
development and includes the ability for
better reasoning skills, abstract thinking
skills and the ability to think about think-
ing, a process known as meta-cognition.
Since the major task of adolescence is
to form a self-identity, teens can use
their new thinking skills to help them
investigate their own thoughts, ideas,
perceptions, and answer the questions
that the search for self-identity brings.
These more advanced reasoning
skills help teens to have a better logical
thought process and the ability to think
hypothetically. These more developed
reasoning skills also allow teens to view
issues from multiple perspectives think-
ing about multiple options and possibili-
ties. Abstract thinking skills allow teens
to think about intangible things that can-
not be seen, heard, or touched, includ-
ing concepts like faith, trust, beliefs, and
Meta-cognition provides teens a new
way to think about how they feel and

what they are thinking. It involves being
able to think about how one is perceived
by others. It can be used to develop
strategies for improving studying and
A visible sign of these newly acquired
thinking skills is that we see teens exhib-
iting many universal behaviors during
adolescence. Teens become very cause-
oriented; it is quite common for teens to
support various causes such as vegetari-
anism, or they may adopt radical views
on just about everything. Teens become
extremely self-conscious and believe that
they are constantly being observed and
judged. They think that their emotional
experiences are more unique than those
of others and will often process their
feelings in an overly dramatic manner.
Another behavior that is characteristic
is one frequently called the "personal
fable," the idea of invincibility, believing
that nothing bad can happen to them
and thus we see teens engage in some
risky behaviors.
None of these teen behaviors sound
like higher-level thinking; however,
through their newly developed cogni-
tive skills teens are trying on a variety
of ideas, personas, beliefs and activities
that help them answer who they are and
who they want to be.
Parents can help their teens through
adolescent transition best by understand-
ing and knowing what changes and
behaviors are normal and thus not over
or under reacting to their teens and the
situations they will encounter. Other
concrete suggestions that might be help-

ful include providing teens with oppor-
tunities to get involved in community
service, involving them in discussions
about household rules and consequenc-
es, involving them in non-threatening
discussions about current events, politics
and listening to their views on what's
going on.
Most important of all is to be there
for them when they need you, which
will be on their time schedule. Teens do
not discuss on demand. As a parent you
will have to wait for that moment when

It is natural to experience anxiety when
you drive again out of fear that you
will be in another accident. There are
various treatments without taking medi-
cation that can help. You may want
to contact a counselor to assess your
mental status and work with you to help
you desensitize your anxiety so you can
learn some relaxation techniques.
Meanwhile, every time you get into
your car to go to work, you are expos-
ing yourself to healing as you experi-
ence getting behind the steering wheel
and driving. Try to stay in the moment
with taking long deep breaths and
focusing on something pleasant rather
than thinking of the accident or having
another unpleasant experience.

Fabulous Furnishings And Window
Treatments For Your Master Suite

by Jeanie Tinch
F] fabulous
hen arrang-
S i ing your bedroom
furniture, first things
" . i first! In most cases,
that means the
placement of your
bed. Because this is
S usually the largest
piece of furniture,
chances are that
available wall space will somewhat limit
your placement options. If at all possible,
try not to place your bed so that it's fac-
ing a window. Morning light waking you
up every day might be less than desir-
able. However, if your bed must face the
window, all is not lost. Room darkening
window treatments can screen out most
of the light.
If a new bed is in your overall design
plan, you have a myriad of choices.
Platform, canopy, and sleigh beds will all
tend to give your bedroom a romantic
feel. Even more important than your
choice of bed is the bedding ensemble
that will adorn this focal point piece in
your new room.
Beautiful Window Treatments
The best possible way to give your
newly redecorated bedroom the perfect
romantic touch is going to be in your
selections of fabrics to adorn both your
bed and your windows. Nothing says

romance more than the soft feel of wil-
lowy textured fabrics. So pamper yourself
with some of today's hottest fabrics and
consider using them in creative, even
whimsical ways.
Bedding ensembles come in a variety
of sizes, shapes and designs. From the
uniquely custom-designed outline quilted
bedspreads, to the simple yet luxurious
duvet covers, your bedding should defi-
nitely take center stage in your room.
No bedding ensemble is complete with-
out multiple pillow shams in several fabric
coordinates, decorative pillows in unique
sizes and shapes, and a coordinating dust
ruffle. Remember your bed and bedding
ensemble will become the focal point of
your new room. It needs to be beautiful
and dramatic and take center stage.
Incorporating a romantically designed
window treatment will also add to the
overall feeling of your room. With endless
possibilities available, you might consider

Kids Catch Reel

Fun In Tarpon Bay

Refuge Interns Rachel Krauss (left) and Joe
Stack help a group of children from the
Florida Baptist Children's Home learn to
wear properly fitted flotation devices

The children depart on Tarpon Bay
Explorers' pontoon boats to fish in Tarpon
Group of 25 lucky children from
the Florida Baptist Children's
Home were treated to a fun-filled
day of fishing in the JN "Ding" Darling
National Wildlife Refuge. The warm and
sunny day began as the group assembled
on the waterfront at refuge concession-
aire Tarpon Bay Explorers (TBE).
Before heading out on the water, the
kids spent time learning about fishing
skills, boating safety, and the marine life
in the bay. In the Explorers' touch tank
exhibit, naturalist Donna Yetsko taught
the kids about the small critters that
inhabit Tarpon Bay. They learned about
sea stars, horseshoe crabs, seahorses, and
snails like the true tulip.
A really important aspect of boating
safety is wearing PFDs (personal floata-
tion devices). Refuge interns Joe Stack
and Rachel Krauss gave the children a
lesson on properly fitting and wearing
their PFDs.
Two important skills to know for a
day of fishing are cast netting for bait
and tying knots in fishing lines. Captains
Andy Pollack and Steve Maddix helped
each child learn how to handle and
throw a cast net at targets on dry ground
while Ranger Becky and STAR teacher
Kinti Snider taught them how to tie the
easy but strong Palomar knot in their
fishing lines.
After an hour on land, the group of
kids was eager to get out on the water
and test their skills. The water was calm
and the sky was sunny as the group
departed on four pontoon boats. They
were accompanied by captains Andy
Pollack, Steve Maddix, Tom Florence,
and Joe Mirabile along with Ranger
Becky, interns Joe and Rachel, STAR
teacher Kinti, Ranger Tracy Gordon, and
volunteer Brian Gordon from the "Ding"
Darling Refuge.
The children fished with live bait -
2,000 shrimp - donated by Shallow Bait.

All of the children were lucky enough
to catch a fish, and some of them even
caught more than 10 fish.
Each group had the chance to see
some of the other wildlife in the refuge
as they were exploring the bay in search
of fish. There were sightings of sting
rays, jellyfish, birds, and manatees, and
one group even had a dolphin swimming
around the whole time they were fishing.
Upon return to shore, a final tally
revealed that all together the children
caught 99 fish and over a dozen differ-
ent species including sea trout, redfish,
and even several bonnethead sharks.
They were joined by their foster families,
refuge staff, and Explorers' staff for a

Another Peek
Inside Your
Pharmacy 2011
by Suzy Cohen, RPh

The last time I
went to the pharma-
cy, I had to wait 25
minutes to get my
prescription filled.
- / Why in the world
does it take so long
to put a few pills in a bottle?
BS, Apopka, Florida
If all you waited was 25 minutes,
you're lucky. Pharmacists work like
crazy, always on their feet and often
without bathroom breaks. Forget food!
The law doesn't allow pharmacists a
lunch break in many states. That said,
your pharmacist is more devoted to you
than you can imagine. Here's a look
inside your pharmacy.
Pharmacists need time to decipher
that cat scratch on your prescription. Is
it Prilosec or Prinivil? Does it matter?
You bet your life! Calling your doctor to
clarify drug names, takes time. The sec-
ond line is an insurance company say-
ing you have to pay full price because
the doctor prescribed a drug that is not
part of your insurance plan. The third

line has a frantic mother calling to ask
if her teen will be okay if he swallowed
two doses of Concerta. The pharmacist
can't hear her well, because a customer
is tapping his finger and groaning at the
counter. Doesn't he understand that the
pharmacist has to double-check all the
pills for accuracy? Doesn't he under-
stand that corporate just cut his tech
hours again?
Then there's Jimmy crying inconsol-
ably with an earache, while his mom
waits for the pharmacist to measure and
mix the Amoxil. But Mrs. Jones needs
to be helped right away because she's in
terrible pain. She's patient because she
realizes that the pharmacist might be
on the phone with a doctor discussing
an interaction that will save someone's
life. This is what he did for her last year.
But Mrs. Jones is keenly aware of every
minute... her oncologist gave her six
months at best. The pharmacist is hur-
rying, though.
Oh God! The computer went down,
the printer is jammed and the phar-
macy ran out of Cialis! How will they
break the news to Mr. Shmeckler who is
planning a romantic weekend in Boca?
The pharmacist tries to take care of
everyone, including the woman ahead
of you who used up her asthma inhaler,
and is gasping in the waiting area. The
pharmacist is scared she's gonna die
right there so he's dispatched 911 for
assistance. Hang on though. Your pre-
scription will be ready very soon... just
as soon as the pharmacist rings out a
customer for Imodium and Xanax, a

Dear Mom & Me,
Last night on TV I heard that Sandra
Day O'Connor's husband is in love with
another woman and she is thrilled and
happy for him. Unfortunately her hus-
band is in an Alzheimer's living complex.
I am in the same position but am jeal-
ous when I visit him at his living complex.
When I visit they are sitting together,
holding hands and watching the world go
by. I know that they are not responsible
for their actions because of the disease,
and I am told they mean a great deal to
each other. My husband and his friend
are more contented, happier and less
hostile and are enjoying their lives.
Would you please help me to become
more loving and understanding like
Sandra Day O'Connor?

Dear Helen,
It sounds like you understand the situ-
ation but you are having a difficult time
accepting it. Acceptance is a choice. You
can choose to accept the situation and
focus on the positives. Cognitively in a
different place than you, your husband is
content. By your own observations and
staff comments your husband is less hos-
tile, enjoying life in the moment. Or you
can focus on the emotions of hurt and
While I understand that these are nor-
mal feelings in situations of infidelity, your
situation is not normal, nor is it infidel-
ity. Brain illnesses in families, mothers,
fathers, wives and husbands challenge
families to love and care in different ways.
Perhaps in your situation (similar to
Sandra Day O'Connor's), you must love
and care enough to let go.
Dear Helen,
Alzheimer's disease is one of the most
feared in the 21st century. Nancy Reagan
said that it was a disease "with a long
No one knows how they will act and
deal with the news when a loved one is
Your reaction to his illness is a very
common one. It is an extremely difficult
situation and many professionals working
in the field call it a family illness - every-
one suffers. Your husband is not showing
behavior against you and, who knows, he
may even think his friend is you. He is no
longer the man you married because of
this disease.
Sandra Day O'Connor is showing love
and kindness in an exceptional way; try if
you can to follow her example.

Shave come to
realize that
Sfine dining and
lobster dinner go
together about as
well as my cat and
vacuum cleaners. (I
have to admit that
on occasion, when
my wife isn't home,
I will entice Shere Khan to walk by the
vacuum and then snap the ON switch
purely for the entertainment value.)
So, sure enough, I'm in a fine dining
establishment peering down at a prettily
perched piece of the Pacific in the form
of the above-mentioned crustacean.
Ties, tiaras and tuxedoes were the
sartorial preference of this joint yet I
was handed a plastic bib and a set of
nutcrackers. No crayons. Larry the lop-
eyed lobster and I viewed each other
suspiciously. "Call me Ishmael," I whis-
pered as I lit into this disgusting denizen
of the deep.
I trapped a thick claw in my nut-
cracker and, with a mighty crack,
released that sweet meat from its brittle
shell. It snapped like a week-old fortune
cookie that had fallen into a really big
vat of liquid nitrogen while in the Gobi
desert right next to a really large black
Yamaha amplifier (you Pulitzer folks
paying attention?), but with unfortunate
results. Not only did some pent-up juice
shoot straight up into my left eye, but a
wee piece of shell went hurtling across
the room like a cruise missile, nar-
rowly missing a distinguished-appearing
woman who was sipping at her bisque.
I detected a momentary look of disdain

from both her and the lobster.
Unlike the bottom-feeding lobster,
who can eat whatever is lying on the
ocean floor including snails, crabs and

of us resemble a Whopper with a side of

Enter the amazing science of nutri-
tional genomics.
Many diseases are caused by what
we toss past our gums. How, you ask?
Okay, I'll tell you. Nutrients actually
interact with our genes by binding to
DNA. Genes, of course, are responsible
for putting together our proteins that do
everything from deciding how many of
our great grandmother's varicose veins
we inherit to how disease-free we are.
But genes that are interfered with in
their intricate production of proteins can
start making wonky proteins that may
make us ill, homely or urge us to start
watching The View. Thus, over time, a
particular diet affects gene expression of
Nutritional genomics, the study of
diet/gene interactions, will usher in a
fascinating new era of consumer genet-
ics. Our genes decide if a certain nutri-
ent, i.e. Coco Puffs, will be okay for
our particular body or if it will, in fact,
create malignant Coco Puffomas on our
Imagine going into a restaurant,
handing over a disc containing your
genetic profile and being given a menu
of those foods that will do you no harm.
It is coming. It hurts me to admit that I
already know that I likely have a malig-
nant gene for Snickers and black forest
cake. So call me suicidal. Viva death by
Yet despite our genomes, our body
can often successfully repair nutritional
damage. While a team doctor at the

1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta I was
taken aback by the fact that there were
five McDonalds restaurants actually
set up within the confines of Olympic
Village!. Not only were they open 24
hours for the athletes' (and doctors')
snacking pleasure, but everything was
completely free. For 17 days! And guess
where the athletes ate. I am not mak-
ing this up. I'm not allowed to. The

22B ISLAND SUN- JUNE 24, 2011
From page 6B
Noordam To Cadiz

O- W ..
Hop on/hop off: At rest while visitors shop and natives relax
show later on and they were amazingly good and very entertaining.
As we slept, the Noordam first cruised east, then turned northeast to our next port,
Valencia, the stop that Peggy and I most looked forward to reaching. We were to be
there only 10 hours so we had to get our plans efficiently organized, because we were
going to be at least three hours late, even though the captain was going full speed
ahead to make up some time.
Peggy wanted to take the tour that included a quick bus ride through the city so we
could get our bearings and see what we later would want to go back to, and also visit
the underground river at the San Jose Caves. Of course I agreed.
Now, the mishap and delay caused major problems for the Shore Excursions
Manager Melissa Burkus and her staff. First she had to contact all the transportation
groups and reschedule passengers on many buses. Next she had to contact all the
attractions and reschedule the visitation times. With that done, she and her staff and
others who could help had to advise every passenger who had signed on for tours of
all kinds what the new schedule would be and produce new tour tickets for everyone.
Then the easy part - getting the crew to monitor the easy departures of all tour pas-
sengers and still keep the routine of the ship on schedule.

Now, if this doesn't sound like a daunting task, remember that the Noordam is but
one of several cruise ships scheduled to visit the same ports, and everything had to be
coordinated to mesh with other cruise ships' unchanged initial events and schedules.
The fact that all went well and all of the passengers were accommodated and reason-
ably happy is a credit to the effectiveness and efficiency of Melissa's staff and a very
flexible group of passengers who took everything well in stride. T'aint easy, McGee!
Well done, guys and gals.
As former Californians, Peggy and I were really at home in Valencia. We enjoyed
the bull ring (no bull fights anymore) the Fallas Museum, the gothic style building, the
cathedral, and especially the Oceanographic Complex, and walked among the natives
enjoying ourselves immensely. Of course we also got our tour to the San Jose Caves
where we boarded a small skiff and went through the Bat Cave, the Dog Kennel and
Diana's Lake... all underground. We recommend Valencia to anyone who visits Spain.
Valencia has culture, parks, churches, no smog, and good food, just about everything
anyone could ask for. Sadly, we had to leave Valencia and head for the next port,
Barcelona, where the Noordam would be docked overnight, giving us all about a
day and a half to visit Spain's second-largest city. I think that we'll be back to re-visit
Valencia some day.
Next, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, and Civitavecchia (the port for Rome), the end of
our cruise.#

Most of the world's black opals come

The mines at White Cliffs supply mainly
light opal. Both fields have produced fine,

ISLAND SUN - JUNE 24, 2011 23B
In 2010, FISH provided 10,000 miles
of transportation to clients. During the
summer season, many volunteer drivers
go up north; however our FISH clients
continue to attend medical appointments
in the Fort Myers area and need transport
to get there and back. This year there is a
severe shortage of drivers.0

on demand. But pharmacists need more
time than "instant." The pharmacist is
the last person you want to hurry up -
because your life is at stake.
This information is not intended
to treat, cure or diagnose your condi-
tion. Suzy Cohen is the author of The
24-Hour Pharmacist and is a registered
pharmacist. To contact her, visit www.

Summer Drivers
Needed For FISH
ISH (Friends In Service Here) of
Sanibel is in urgent need of drivers
to take clients off-island to medical
related appointments. Typically they are
trips to Fort Myers that last approxi-
mately two hours. If you can spare a
few hours a month over the coming
months, call 472-4775.
Volunteer training will be done in
advance of any driving you will be asked
to undertake.

To play Sudoku:
Complete the grid so
that every row, column
and every 3x3 box
contains the numbers
1 through 9 (the same
number cannot appear
more than once in a
row, column or 3x3 box.)
There is no guessing
and no math involved,
just logic.
