Spring Cleaning And Summer
Days At Sanibel Historical Village
he City of Sanibel has been sprucing up the Sanibel Historical Museum and
Village in the past few weeks. The volunteer Hammerheads, led by Dean
Skaugstad, have been replacing the walkways and handicap ramps with the
more durable Trex boards.
The city recently power-washed the Old Bailey General Store and the Rutland
House and gave the outside of the School House for White Children a new coat of
Sun and rain take their toll each season and the buildings and grounds must be
maintained on a regular basis. Gordon Kraft, who works in the Sanibel Public Works
Department, is at the village regularly and helps to keep the buildings, built in the
1890s through the 1920s, in good condition and the grounds cleared of debris and
neatly trimmed. Kraft also regularly clears the pathways of raccoon droppings. The
vegetables and fruit grown in the village's Heritage Garden attracts the critters. They
especially enjoy the ripening mangoes and leave their left-overs on the pathways. As
Kraft says, "It's all part of the charm of the Village."
While life slows down at the historical village in June and July, many visitors are
taking a time-out from a sun and surf holiday to take a leisurely step back in time and
get a sense of the way life was on Sanibel long before the causeway brought hordes
of tourists. Children, in particular, find the old typewriters, wall telephones and the
1930's era goods sold in the Old Bailey Store most interesting. Their parents enjoy a
"trip down memory lane."
The Museum Gift Shop is open and sells a unique mix of gifts and history-related
items, all made in America and reasonably priced.
The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open on Wednesdays through
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Docents are available to tell some Sanibel stories
and share their knowledge about the seven historic buildings on the grounds. Audio
recordings in each building bring to light the island's rich heritage. The museum is
located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIGARTS) and is handicap accessible. Admission
is $5 for adults; free for children 17 and under and members. For more information,
visit or call 472-4648 during business hours.#

Expansion Gets
City Blessing
by Anne Mitchell
Sanibel Community Church leaders
on Tuesday cleared the final hur-
dles in their plan to build a 630-
seat sanctuary to replace the 420 seats
currently in use in two buildings.
The plan also includes offices, media
room, bookstore, cafe, garage and some
remodeling of existing structures and
259-on site parking spaces. The old cha-
pel will remain.
The church sits on an 8.1-acre parcel
at 1740 Periwinkle Way and is already
cramped for space, including parking,
which has been a contentious issue
throughout the application process for a
conditional use permit.
And even though the parking issue
seemed to have been resolved at the June
14 commission meeting, there were still
questions as to what type, if any, parking
bumpers or delineation would be used on
the grassy area that will double for chil-
dren's activities and stacked parking when
Commissioner Paul Reynolds, who
operates a coffee shop in Jerry's cen-
ter, pressed for delineated parking in
the church's stacked parking area. The
church has approval to use spillover
parking at Jerry's from a long-ago legal
agreement, but it doesn't state how many
spaces. In peak season, there would be
considerable overflow if church parking
is not efficient. Many would find it more
convenient to park at Jerry's, Reynolds
The church is on Periwinkle Way,
adjacent to Jerry's Market.
After considerable discussion, Ray
Pavelka, facilities committee chairman for

the church, agreed to put concrete park-
ing bumpers on the perimeter parking
areas. Earlier, Pavelka had talked about
using pvc pipe, cones and chalk marks to
delineate the stacked parking spaces.
"As Mr. Jordan (planning director)
says, we have already bent a lot of rules
here," said Chairman Mike Valiquette.
Eventually both sides agreed to a park-
ing plan that will be reviewed after the
first 12 months to make sure it's working
during peak season. Commissioner Phillip
Marks was the lone dissenter in the 5-1
vote of approval.
The commission also agreed that
church officials may "proceed at their
own risk" in going ahead with construc-
tion while waiting for a permit from the
South Florida Water Management District
for on-site drainage, a process Pavelka
said could take four to eight weeks. The
church must also relocate up to 10 on-
site gopher tortoises, working with the
city's natural resources department.
This expansion may not be a perma-
nent solution for the church's growing
pains. Pavelka acknowledged that even
the expanded campus may not remain
adequate for long. He said officials of
the fast-growing church are still pursuing
plans to relocate to land behind the Dairy
Queen. A plan to develop it some years
ago was dropped when an eagles' nest
was discovered.4

Bailey's Center
Plan Amended
by Anne Mitchell
he Sanibel Planning Commission
on Tuesday amended the master
plan for Bailey's Shopping Center
to allow for the continued use of a cof-
fee bar and a reduction in the number
of parking spaces.

Given that this issue has now come before the public, it may be well to review
here just why mangroves are so important to our ecosystem - and why they must
be preserved.
True natives, the mangroves are our most valuable coastal resource. They are
a biologically complex ecosystem, the link between the land and the sea. The
red mangrove, Rhizophora mangle, with its reddish prop roots buffers the effect
of storm winds, waves and floods on uplands, as the water is absorbed into their
These mangroves stabilize shorelines. The root system slows water flow, facilitat-
ing the organic/chemical material deposit of sediment which imparts nutrients that
are the basis of the marine food chain. Nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus
filtered from coastal waters are incorporated into the leaves, branches and root sys-
tems and are naturally transferred to the detrital food web.
Food And Shelter For Most Fish Species
An estimated 85 to 90 percent of all local commercial and recreational fin fish
depend on mangroves for food and shelter. Attached marine organisms also filter
water trap and cycle nutrients. Mangroves are the nursery of the sea. They also are
valued as rookeries and shelter for wading birds and brown pelicans.
Worldwide, mangroves account for the storage of more carbon than almost any
other forest on earth. Florida has approximately 469,000 acres of mangrove forest.
Sanibel, with 11,000 plus acres, has nine miles of mangrove shoreline. The propa-
gules of the red mangrove are embryonic root structures that may float for up to a
year before rooting. As they root, they form islands such as the ones that can be
seen from Wildlife Drive in the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.
The City of Sanibel does not allow trimming for view of mangroves on any City
owned or managed property, in order to ensure the mangroves' complete range
of ecological value. Trimming has a secondary impact to other native plant com-
munities, altering growth patterns. City ordinance 96-07 mirrors the State 1996
Mangrove Trimming and Preservation Act, also restricting mangrove trimming on
public conservation lands.
The mangroves quite literally hold the land on Sanibel -- and the citizens of this
sanctuary island have the Sanibel Plan and the Land Development Code holding us
responsible for preventing mangrove trimming on public conservation lands. The
Committee of the Islands supports City Council's decision to uphold the Sanibel
Plan and the Code.
As always, we welcome your ideas about this and other island issues. Visit the
Committee of the Islands website at, or send us your thoughts via
email to,

Moon Jelly, Moon Jelly, Moon Jelly
It was Moon Jelly Week at Sanibel Sea School. For those who have never seen
that huge beautiful plate in the ocean, moon jellies (aurelia aurita) are the big,
flat, plate-like jellyfish that don't really sting, often seen offshore.
This week students learned a lot about jellyfish. They made fantastic-remember-this-
for-Halloween jellyfish hats, studied plastics in the ocean that look like jellyfish, etc. In
fact, they did everything but see one! (Isn't
that always the way?)
They did, however, catch a seahorse Right: Some of the Jellyfish Sea School kids
when seining, worked on the 4th of July who went to Bailey's Store last week to
float, and did a "soul float" down the island draw colorful sidewalk art that illustrated
that came within feet of manatees; they just how much plastics now endanger

months begin to hatch. This
makes the beach a busy place at night. If you visit the beach, especially at night,
please keep a few things in mind to keep our beaches sea turtle friendly:
* Remove all beach furniture, tents and toys
* Fill in all holes that you dig
* Turn off or shield all lights facing the beach
* Avoid using a flashlight
* Never take flash photographs
* Honor the leash law
* Respect all marked sea turtle nests
If you happen to see a sea turtle, keep a respectful distance (at least 150 feet) and
watch quietly. It is a rare experience and one to be treasured. You can learn more

This large flowering
tree native is native to the
Amazon River Basin in
Brazil, Argentina and Peru.
A member of the begonia
family, it loses its leaves in
winter, but in early spring,
it produces the bell-shaped
violet-blue flowers.
Flowers measure about
11/2 inches across and grow
in pyramid-shaped clusters
on the branch ends. These
clusters of vivid flowers,
called panicles, can be more Jacaranda's fruit splits open to release winged seeds
than a foot long. photos by Gerri Reaves
They, along with the fine
feathery foliage, make jacaranda a popular ornamental that provides light shade.
The fine-textured leaves are comprised of tiny leaflets about one-fourth of an
inch long. Leaves are once- or twice-divided with as many as two dozen pairs of
hairy leaflets.
The distinctive fruit is a woody circular pod about two inches across that splits
open and releases winged seeds.
Jacaranda needs lots of room in the landscape. It can grow as tall as 60 feet,
forming an asymmetrically branching canopy up to 50 feet wide.

Jacaranda's cluster of violet-blue flowers and feathery foliage make it a popular orna-
mental tree
It prefers full sun for maximum flowering and moist but well-drained soil. It is
somewhat drought-tolerant but will not thrive in open windy conditions. It will not
tolerate salt, so is unsuitable for coastal landscapes.
Cultivate jacaranda with seeds or by grafting.

CROW Saves And Releases
Bald Eagle Injured By Gunshot

an American bald eagle .
was shot and wounded
by an unknown assailant in
Lehigh Acres. With the com-
bined help of a concerned citizen ......
and the Florida Fish & Wildlife l
Conservation Commission, the l .,
bird was captured and brought
to CROW, the Clinic for the ..
Rehabilitation of Wildlife on
At CROW, X-rays showed that
the eagle's wing was broken in two
places and that shot still remained
inside the bird. Initial diagnosis was
that it would be difficult for the
eagle to recover from the wounds
and a return back into the wild
seemed improbable at that time.
But the CROW medical team
went to work and performed sur-
gery on March 8 to place an intra-�
medullary pin in the fractured right .
radius and remove the shot still
lodged inside the body. The bird
recovered well from the surgery,
was eating by the next day and
continued to receive pain medica-
tion for the next 12 days. The The injured bald eagle during recovery
bandage covering the injured wing
was changed on days three, seven, and 14 after the surgery and the pin was removed
on April 1.
The eagle was moved from the ICU area of the CROW Clinic to a small outdoor
enclosure on April 6, then to a small flight cage on April 17, flying short distances. On
May 20, the eagle was doing well enough to be moved to a large flight cage and by

early June was flying extremely well. On Sunday, June 12, the eagle was transported
by car to Lehigh Acres where it was released back into its natural habitat. This is the
fifth bald eagle admitted at CROW this year and all have been successfully released
back into the wild.
Florida Fish & Wildlife officials continue to investigate the shooting and anyone with
information about the incident can call the Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922 or
report it online at Those reporting may remain anony-
mous and there is a reward for information leading to an arrest.
For the past three years, CROW has admitted over 4,000 patients into its hospi-
tal, representing over 200 different wildlife species. Less than 20 percent of the sick,
injured and orphaned patients come from Sanibel and Captiva, with the rest coming
from all over Lee County. The combined efforts and hard work of CROW's staff, stu-
dents and volunteers keep its wildlife clinic open seven days a week, 365 days a year.
CROW also operates a visitor education center to teach the public to care for and care
about the wildlife neighbors who share our world. Visit to learn

Afternoon Rains Fire Fishing Back Up
by Capt. Matt Mitchell
- T ith the summertime pattern of afternoon rains slowly
Starting to kick in, fishing began to pick up last week.
w' V V The much-needed rains started to reoxygenate our
waters and had fish feeding again like they have not done in
- . The most productive areas for good action seemed to be any-
Swhere in and or around the passes. If you could hit the pass on
.. .. the right tide there were good numbers of some real quality fish
to be caught.
Switching gears from tarpon fishing, which has been tough
to say the least, it was great to have the rods bent and find some
easy fast action on quality redfish and snook for a change.
Though I have not written tarpon fishing off for the year, I don't have any more
tarpon trips scheduled and will not suggest it to my clients unless things really turn
around. The rains could and should make things better out there for tarpon fishing but
I'm not counting on it.
While fishing a morning outgoing tide at Redfish Pass, I got my clients on one of
the most wide open pass bites I can remember for a long time. Every drift we either
caught an over-the-slot sized redfish, a snook or hooked into a freight train we simply

could not turn. With
even a few double hook-
ups, the bite kept up for . .. ......
roughly two hours until
the tide slowed. Then as
quickly as it had started,
the action was over. .
The bait of choice
was a live pinfish
dragged against the bot-
tom through the pass
while drifting. My basic
pass rig is easy enough:
15- to 20-pound spin-
ning tackle rigged with t h
two to three feet of 30- bi
to 40-pound fluorocar- ,
bon leader, a 2/0 hook
and a large splitshot to
keep the bait bounc-
ing the bottom. I like
to place my split shot
up high on the leader
roughly 12 to 18 inches
up above the bait. If
you don't feel the bait
bouncing off the bottom
while you're drifting, add
another split shot. It's a
very simple rig with the
key being your bait has
to move at the same "
speed as the tide against
the bottom during the
drift for a very natural Jon Majewski of Wisconsin with an over-the-slot redfish
presentation. caught at Redfish Pass last week
When you get in the
pass, start off by making
a few drifts of the entire run of the pass. Try both sides at different depths until you
locate where the bite is. Once you narrow down where the fish are located you can
often make that same drift over the same spot, basically nailing fish every drift once
you have it dialed in. It may take some time to work out where the fish are holding in
the pass on what tide but once you have this method down it can be used in all our
local passes to get in on the action all sum-
mer long.
The passes act like a funnel as huge
amounts of water move though a narrow
cut, increasing the speed of the tide. This
fast moving water pushes lots of bait in
and out on the tides, often disorienting it
and making it an easy meal for staged-up
gamefish. Add to that deeper cooler water
in the passes than the rest of the bay right Fishing * Cabbage Key
now and you have a great set-up to catch Dolphin Watching
some quality fish.

Least Tern
weak in general, Dr. Amber said.
"We gave her some fluids both under the
skin and orally with Chinese herb we use a
lot for patients who are weak, to boost their
energy and appetite and help build muscle,"
Dr. Amber said. The herb is called Four ,.. . . " -
Gentlemen. The bird was also given vitamins
B and C, and that was all for the first day.
There was good news that first day: she
ate two fish! "We had to dig through every Least tern
package of fish and pull out the tiniest ones
because most of the fish were as big as she was," Dr. Amber said.
The little tern started eating more and more (fresh fish four times a day!) and got
up to 39.3 grams by June 19. "I wasn't sure she would be very likely to eat, so I was
really happy when she did," Dr Amber said. "We were keeping her in the incubator
for the first five days."
On the fifth day, she was moved out to a cage and staff continued to feed her once
a day. "We put her in a bathtub every morning with salt water so she could bathe if
she wanted to and gave her a heat lamp to dry off," Dr. Amber said.
At this point, the little bird was still active and getting stronger, but not flying. Dr.
Amber was waiting for her to give some kind of clue or signal that she was ready.
Then about a week later, the clinic took in a fledgling least tern with some injuries
to her leg, and having the two birds together - same-species company - was good for
both of them.
"Terns are kind of tricky when it comes to test flying," Dr. Amber explained. "They
need that big, open space of the beach and the gulf to take off. Many times they can't
or don't want to. It's hard to tell when they're ready to fly."
On June 23, this healed least tern took off, flew around the clinic, and looked
"We started making arrangements to get her back to Lovers Key, where we hope
she lives today," Dr. Amber concluded. "We don't know what caused her initial weak-
ness but she came through it and was better at the other side."

Blue Green

Algae In The

by Commissioner Ray Judah
T he presence of toxic blue-
green algae upstream of the
Franklin Lock and Dam in the
Caloosahatchee River is a vivid reminder
of the South Florida Water Management
District's (SFWMD) failure to properly
manage our precious water resources.
Beholden to the powerful sugar
industry, the SFWMD permits wasteful
discharge of millions of gallons of fresh
water from Lake Okeechobee to tide
during the wet season. This provides opti-
mum growing conditions for sugar cane,
but results in excessive polluted water dis-
charge to the Caloosahatchee and coastal
estuaries. Further harm occurs in the dry
season when the SFWMD shuts down
minimum flow to the Caloosahatchee
River needed to prevent harmful concen-
trations of algae and hypersaline condi-
The SFWMD, in fact, spends millions
of taxpayer's dollars to install and operate
large pumps during drought conditions
to direct water from Lake Okeechobee
to the sugar cane fields while suspending
any flow to the Caloosahatchee needed
to protect habitat critical to the lifecycle
of our fisheries.
This cycle of destruction and degra-
dation of our environment causes sig-
nificant harm to our local economy and

quality of life. The Lee County Health
Department recently issued a Health
Advisory precluding any human or ani-
mal contact with the Caloosahatchee
due to the harmful blue-green algae
blooms and the presence of toxic cya-
nobacteria. The vast media coverage of
the health issues and the graphic images
being aired throughout the world on the
condition in the Caloosahatchee create
a marked impact to our fragile tourism
and real estate industries.
The SFWMD and the sugar industry
would argue that the guidance docu-
ment known as Adaptive Protocols,
used to manage low water levels in
Lake Okeechobee, authorizes water
allocation exclusively to agriculture and
utilities while restricting environmental
releases to the Caloosahatchee. In fact,
the Adaptive Protocols provide guid-
ance to water managers for discretion-
ary releases to protect the ecosystem.
Furthermore, Chapter 373.042 and
373.0421 Florida Statutes require the
SFWMD to declare and institute Phase
III water restrictions (45 percent reduc-
tions) for all permitted users when our
rivers and coastal estuaries experience
significant harm.
It is not as if the dry conditions were
unforeseen. As early as the fall of 2010,
the SFWMD was forecasting drier than
normal conditions and the real poten-
tial for water shortages. Rather than
implementing common sense cutbacks
on agricultural and urban users, the
SFWMD's only action was to recom-
mend cutting off environmental releases
to the Caloosahatchee. No action was

taken until March 2011 when the
SFWMD placed a modest 15 percent
water reduction on agriculture and utili-
ties. SFWMD did not call for 45 percent
reduction to agricultural users until this
month, well after the Caloosahatchee
had suffered irrefutable harm and loss
of all remaining fresh water grasses.
It is unacceptable for the SFWMD to
unilaterally cut off the Caloosahatchee
when other users are not required to
institute meaningful water conservation
The Caloosahatchee continues to suf-
fer at the hands of policy decisions by
the SFWMD. The Caloosahatchee estu-
ary is suffering at a shockingly regular
and continual rate. Providing minimum
flow to the Caloosahatchee during the
dry season would amount to about five
inches from Lake Okeechobee. In con-
trast, water supply users are provided
more than two feet of lake water during
this time.
The Caloosahatchee is in its fourth
consecutive year of not receiving mini-
mum fresh water flow and level (MFL).
The continual failure to meet the MFL
for the Caloosahatchee has resulted in
significant harm to the health, productiv-
ity and function of the Caloosahatchee
and coastal estuaries.
Our hope for economic recovery is
predicated on a healthy environment.
Gov. Scott and our congressio-
nal and state delegations need to be
held accountable in working with the
SFWMD to protect the public interest
and our waterways.0

Sanibel-Captiva Art League
Artists Exhibit Paintings And Banners

Carolyn Johns

O ver 100 paintings are currently
on view at the Sanibel Public
Library and in Phillips Gallery
at BIG ARTS. By displaying their work
in these Annual Summer Art Shows
sponsored by the Sanibel-Captiva Art
League, the artists attain goals set dur-
ing past academic and studio studies
and during local painting workshops.
These shows provide local artists with
encouragement to practice and improve
their skills while sharing their work with
the community to critique and purchase.
Some of the artists have only recently
started painting while others have won
awards and also show their work in art
galleries throughout the year.
The island scenes with tropical vegeta-
tion and wildlife are a favorite for island

Jim Monroe Barbara Taylor

residents who wish to decorate their
homes as well as for visitors who wish to
take a little of the island home so they
can remember their vacation in paradise.
Each original painting is a different
interpretation and unique to the individual
artist's style. There are watercolors ren-
dered with precision and expert technique
while other paintings have wildly colorful
expressionistic brushstrokes that evoke
emotional content.
In addition to Art League paintings,
there is a traveling exhibit of 11 Artreach
banners made by school students for
the Human Trafficking Awareness
Partnership. The students used their cre-
ative skills to develop and create these
works of art that educate and inform.

Deborah Butler

As part of the Art Council of
Southwest Florida in Lee, Charlotte and
Collier counties, San-Cap Art League also
provides opportunities for artists to enter
their paintings in several juried shows
throughout the year that are judged by
nationally known artists. Frequently the
judge will give a public gallery talk after-
ward and explain why he chose certain
paintings to receive awards and rejected
others from the exhibit. Residents and
visitors are invited to view these exhibits
and attend receptions.
To see current shows call the library,
472-2483, for regular hours. The Sanibel
Library has a newly expanded media cen-
ter with periodicals, reference material,
CDs and DVDs, tapes and computers

My Stars ***
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You
clever Ewes and Rams love nothing more
than to rise to a challenge. So, by all
means, if you feel sure about your facts,
step right up and defend your side of the
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You've
done some great work recently. Now it's
time to reward yourself with something
wonderful, perhaps a day at a spa or a
night out with someone very special.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You
love to talk, but don't forget to make time
to do a little more listening; otherwise,
you could miss out on an important mes-
sage someone might be trying to send to
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your
aspect indicates some uncertainty about
one of your goals. Use this period of shift-
ing attitudes to reassess what you really
want and what you're ready to do to get it.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your
social life is picking up, and you'll soon
be mingling with old friends and making
new ones. But twixtt the fun times, stay

on top of changing workplace conditions.
VIRGO (August 23 September 22) A
trusted friend offers understanding as you
vent some long-pent-up feelings. Now,
move on from there and start making the
changes you've put off all this time.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
You might well feel uneasy as you face a
difficult situation involving someone close
to you. But you know you're doing the
right thing, so stick with your decision.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November
21) You're a good friend to others. Now's
the time to allow them to be good friends
to you. Rely on their trusted advice to
help you get through an uncertain period.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Family and friends are
always important, but especially so at
this time. Despite your hectic workplace
schedule, make a real effort to include
them in your life.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to
January 19) That project you've been
working on is almost ready for presenta-
tion. But you still need some information
from a colleague before you can consider
it done.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February
18) Don't let those negative attitudes that

have sprung up around you drain your
energies. Shrug them off, and move ahead
with the confidence that you can get the
job done.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Aspects favor some dedicated fun time
for the hardworking Piscean. A nice,
refreshing plunge into the social swim can
recharge your physical and emotional bat-
BORN THIS WEEK: You love to
travel and be with people. You probably
would be happy as a social director on a
cruise ship.

* On July 8, 1776, a 2,000-pound
copper-and-tin bell now known as the
"Liberty Bell" rings out from the tower
of the Pennsylvania State House (now
Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, sum-
moning citizens to the first public reading
of the Declaration of Independence. As
the British advanced toward Philadelphia
in the fall of 1777, the bell was removed
from the city and hidden in Allentown to
save it from being melted down by the
British and used to make cannons.
* On July 4, 1826, the 50th anniver-

sary of the adoption of the Declaration of
Independence, John Adams and Thomas
Jefferson, the second and third presidents
of the United States, respectively, die.
Both men had been central in the drafting
of the historic document.
* On July 5, 1865, in London, revival-
ist preacher William Booth and his wife
Catherine establish the Christian Mission,
later known as the Salvation Army, to
wage war against the evils of poverty and
religious indifference.
* On July 7, 1930, construction of the
Hoover Dam begins. Over the next five
years, a total of 21,000 men would pro-
duce what would be the largest dam of its
time. Today, the Hoover Dam generates
enough energy each year to serve more
than a million people.
* On July 9, 1947, in a ceremony held
at the Pentagon in Arlington, Va., Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower appoints Florence
Blanchfield to be a lieutenant colonel
in the U.S. Army, making her the first
woman in U.S. history to hold permanent
military rank. Blanchfield had served as
superintendent of the Army Nurse Corps
during World War II.

John Lennon and Paul McCartney meet

* On July 10, 1962, the United States
Patent Office issues Swedish engineer
Nils Bohlin a patent for his three-point
automobile safety belt. The traditional
two-point belt had been known to cause
severe internal abdominal injuries in the
event of a high-speed crash.

* It was 19th-century German philoso-
pher Arthur Schopenhauer who made the
following sage observation: "There is no
absurdity so palpable but that it may be
firmly planted in the human head if you
only begin to inculcate it before the age of
five, by constantly repeating it with an air
of great solemnity."
* Those who study such things say that
half of all money spent on food in the
United States is spent in restaurants.
* If, like me, you are constantly find-
ing excess wire hangers in your closets,
you probably won't be surprised to learn

that more than 2.7 billion of them were
imported in 2010 alone.
* You might be surprised to learn that
beer brewers in Australia are on the cut-
ting edge of alternative energy production.
They have created a "beer battery" -- the
world's first, they claim -- in which elec-
tricity is generated by bacteria consuming
the waste that is created by the brewing
* Companies today sometimes seem to
go too far in advertising their products,
but consider Richard Chesebrough, who
invented the petroleum jelly Vaseline in
1872. In order to market his new creation
as a salve for cuts and burns, he traveled
around New York state demonstrating the
efficacy of the product by burning his skin
with acid, then applying Vaseline to the
injury. A display of his past burns that had
been healed with Vaseline would, in theo-
ry, convince people to buy the product.
* If you're looking to brighten up your
living space with some greenery, you
might want to consider getting a bonsai
tree. They live longer than any other

Local Playwrights
To Be Featured At
Staged Readings
theatre Conspiracy announces a
weekend of staged readings of
plays by local playwrights on July
8, 9 and 10 at the Foulds Theatre.
Five original works will be performed
over three days.
On Friday, July 8 at 8 p.m., In
The Shade Of Old Trees by Louise
Wigglesworth of Fort Myers will be
featured under the direction of Steve
Hooper. The play tells the story of a
young woman who learns that the father
she has never known is just barely alive
in a remote part of the country. An aunt
invites her to come and help her with
her father's care in his final days. After
decades of questions about this hid-
den side of her family, she jumps at the
opportunity to learn more about them,
and subsequently about herself. What
she discovers is the last thing a daughter
dreams of in a reunion with a lost parent.
In the same town she meets a troubled
young man who has come back home to
sort out issues of his own. Together they
uncover a stunning litany of family sins
that has brought all of them to this crucial

place and time.
On Saturday, July 9 at 8 p.m. is
Breakfast At Starbucks by Robert
Hilliard. Directed by the playwright, it
tells the story of a lonely, shy, divorced
middle-aged woman and a lonely, shy,
divorced middle-aged man who meet at
Starbucks and then go to his apartment.
Will their insecurities and low self-esteem
suppress their sexual attraction for each
other? Will the memories of their former
spouses and failed marriages prevent
them from falling in love? If they raise
each other's self-confidence, will they
need each other anymore?
On Sunday, July 10 at 2 p.m. there
will be three one-act plays performed.
The Gray And The Blue is by Wallace
M. Kain. In this story the Civil War has
just ended. Confederate soldiers are holed
up in a farmhouse, surrounded with no
chance of escape but unwilling to surren-
der. A Union general considers whether
to storm the building and take casualties
or stand off and pound it to dust with an
artillery piece. He decides on the latter
course, sets up the piece and watches the
house through field glasses, ready to fire.
Why doesn't he fire?
Also on the bill will be When Do We
Shoot Them? by Robert Hilliard. As
World War II is ending, two American
soldiers on the front lines in Germany
capture two German soldiers. They can't
stop the war and take them back as pris-
oners and, as was the frequent practice,
have to shoot them. Or do they? The
story is based on the author's personal
experience as a combat infantryman in
World War II.
Also on Sunday will be a portion of a
work by Patricia Idlette. Titled Big Girls,
the play concerns family relations.
Tickets for each day are $5, or
buy a pass to all three days for $10.

Around The Islands With Anne
John Allan Says Farewell With Sale Of
Island-Shaped Bracelets; Big Sales At
Comfort By Design And Why Knot
by Anne Mitchell
A s John Allan Designs continues it clearance
sale in preparation for moving off-island, you .
will find some unprecedented bargains in the
store's trademark island shaped bangles and charms.
Discounts on all John Allan Grinstead's creations
are 20 to 50 percent. All the jewelry is priced
according to the cost of the gold and silver at the
time it was made. So with the increasing price of
gold, you could be getting an even better deal.
Never before have these hand-crafted gold and sil-
ver jewelry items been discounted, says Rich Benton,
manager. And once the Sanibel store closes, they
won't be on sale again.
The Sanibel bracelets start at just over $200
before discount.
The Sanibel-shaped motif is accurate in both
shape and scale. It was taken from a satellite pho-
tograph, shrunk down and re-created by Grinstead
in silver and gold. It is also available in the shape of
Captiva and as both islands together. If you wish, he
will add a diamond or colored stone to mark your
home's location or the place you stay.
Grinstead uses only precious stones, not chips,

The Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club will present its popular fish fry on Sanibel this
Friday, July 1. The club's first fish fry, held in November 2010, drew over 300
guests and was a major success. The last two events raised $10,000 that went
to benefit the Southeastern Guide Dogs - an organization with a mission to create
and nurture a partnership between a visually impaired individual and a guide dog.
Money raised at Friday's fish fry will benefit the Lions' summer camp scholarships
for the handicapped to attend Quest's Camp Thunderbird program. For more infor-

Water Crisis

A team from The Conservancy of South-
west Florida performs a water quality test.

Kirk Fordham, CEO of the Everglades
Foundation explained, "While these
algal blooms are a result, in part, of
the ongoing drought, the fact is the
Caloosahatchee River and Lee County
are getting a 'man-made,' unfair dispro-
portionate share of the lack of water.
Natural water flows have been disrupted
and water managers are holding water
back to meet upstream irrigation needs.
Why should anglers, boaters, swimmers,
and the residents of Southwest Florida
bear the vast majority of the drought bur-
den?" Fordham stated.
"Short term, we need immedi-
ate and fair allocation of water to the
Caloosahatchee River from the South
Florida Water Management District
"Long term," Fordham continued,
"the state and the federal government
need to work together to provide ade-
quate water storage to supply the needs
of businesses, people and nature. Water
storage to accommodate Southwest
Florida's growing needs is critical. That's
why the U.S. Sugar land purchase makes
so much sense."
Jennifer Hecker, Conservancy
of Southwest Florida director of
natural resources policy, stated, "The
Caloosahatchee issue involves both the
quantity of water and the quality of water
from Lake Okeechobee discharges. While
draining one inch of water from the lake
could temporarily improve the current
river conditions, polluted water flows can
create other problems."
Hecker continued, "The problems of
the Caloosahatchee River can be solved
if federal, state, and local regulators work
together to obtain more surface storage,
treat more water, and time releases to
mimic natural water flows."
Hecker went on to urge the public to
work with decision-makers to ensure fer-
tilizer ordinances are adopted to limit the
amount of fertilizer, poorly treated sewage
and animal waste running off into our
area waters. Hecker also encouraged sup-
port for the numeric nutrient standards
to help alleviate nitrogen and phosphorus
pollution that contributes to toxic algal
blooms, threaten public health and injure

Back in 2006, American Rivers,
the Caloosahatchee River Citizens
Association, Caloosahatchee River
Watch, Conservancy of Southwest
Florida and other local environmental
groups successfully lobbied to have the
Caloosahatchee designated as an endan-
gered river.
The group, including Tamara Pigott,
executive director, Lee County Visitor
& Convention Bureau; Ralf Brookes,
environmental attorney and local angler;
Frank Mann, Lee County Commissioner;
Mick Denham, vice mayor, City of
Sanibel, expressed concern that a proac-
tive water quality plan to reduce pollution
targets aimed at the source of the pol-
lution was never put in place, five year
The speakers agreed that enforcing
flow standards, developing stricter fertil-
izer ordinances, developing water storage
areas and creating limits to the amount of
nutrients allowed in our waters will help
correct the issue over time.
The Caloosahatchee River provides
drinking water for tens of thousands
of people, supports a world-renowned
haven for birds and other wildlife, and
is the heart of a $2 billion local tourist

and abundant water is a gift we leave

"You'll Appreciate the Difference'


Shell Museum
Seeks Volunteers
Are you looking for a rewarding
way to donate a few hours of your
time? Do you have a love for peo-
ple and shells? If so, The Bailey-Matthews
Shell Museum would be a great place to
spend some quality moments with other
shell lovers.
Volunteer opportunities can be cus-
tomized to suit your skills, interests and
schedule, so you don't have to be a shell
expert to help at the shell museum. If
you know something about shells, there
are things to do with the public or behind
the scenes. If not, perhaps you and other
volunteers can chat about your summer
plans while you prepare membership
mailings. All volunteers are provided with
on-site training and orientation, a muse-
um membership, and store and event
discounts. Volunteers living off-island will
receive Sanibel Causeway toll reimburse-
"There are so many places that volun-
teers can make a difference," said Diane
Thomas, public program specialist for
the museum. "Their talents allow us to
inform and educate visitors and ensure
that they get the most out of their visit to
the museum.
Exhibit hall docent Patricia Williams of
Fort Myers signed on as a volunteer four
years ago. "It's a really interesting job,"
she said. "There's certainly a lot more to
shells than one would imagine. I think I
learn something new every time I come.
It's just a really fun, interesting way to
spend a few hours."

If you are interested in receiving addi-
tional volunteer information, contact
Diane Thomas at dothomas@shellmu- or calling 395-2233.

S|or an animal that's not fuzzy,
the turtle is probably most
l loved. If you get a person inter-
ested in one aspect of nature - in this
case, the turtle - it will open the whole
world of nature up to them."
-Jim White
Guest speaker last week at Rotary
was Amanda Bryant, SCCF (Sanibel-
Captiva Conservation Foundation)
biologist and sea turtle program coor-
dinator. Although sea turtle monitoring
and research has been going on on the
islands since the 1960s, SCCF formally


took on the responsibilities of coordina-
tion of the islands' sea turtle conserva-
tion program in 1992. Information
from SCCF is reported to NOAA
(National Oceanic and Atmospheric
"Sea turtles are increasingly being
recognized as an important strand in
the web of ocean life - sea turtles help
to sustain the biological diversity of the
oceans, and biological diversity in the
oceans helps sustain the Earth. The
feeding habits of the sea turtles are
important to the vitality of important
ocean species. By depositing their eggs
on the shore, sea turtles transport vital
nutrients from the ocean to nutrient-
poor coastal and inshore habitats. In
fact, sea turtles are the only marine
species that regularly transfer nutrients

sea turtle nesting season, from May
through October. Volunteers patrol 18

which will be somewhere around 75
to 130. The hatching time is 55 to 65
days. When hatched the turtles make
their way out to sea.
Approximately 211 loggerhead turtle
nests have been counted this season.
The loggerhead is the most common
sea turtle in Florida
On April 22 of his year, one Kemp's
Ridley turtle nest was discovered (the
most endangered turtle species in the
world). One nested here in 1996. The
turtle nested a full eight days before the
official start of sea turtle nesting season,
which is May 1, and she nested during
the day. Sea turtles usually nest at night.
Sanibel-Captiva Sea Turtle Facts:
* Only female sea turtles ever come
* Sea turtles nest and hatch at night
* Female sea turtles will nest some-
where between one and six times per
season, and lay 75 to 130 eggs each
* Female sea turtles are repeat nest-
ers, meaning they return to nest in the
approximate location each time for
* Loggerheads can grow to 31/2 feet
and weigh as much as 800 pounds but
when born are only two inches long and
weigh around .04 pounds
* Sea turtles have no natural predator
but sea turtles are threatened by coastal
development, pollution and pathogens,
global warming and fisheries. Fisheries
are thought to be one of the leading
causes for sea turtle death and injury
worldwide and can occur when turtles
bite baited hooks, become entangled in
fishing lines or are crushed by dredges

Things You Can Do To Help Our
Island Sea Turtles:
* Never disturb sea turtle nests. When
boating or shelling respect the habitat
and habits of the sea turtles.
* Be careful when and where you dis-
card your plastic fishing lines and plastic
bags (plastic bags in the water look like
jellyfish and are mistakenly eaten by our
sea creatures).
* If you live on the beach, remember
our dark-skies ordinance.

14B ISLAND SUN - JULY 1, 2011
The End of The Cruise

To Barcelona,
Monte Carlo,

by Ted Tyson
After an uneventful overnight
cruise, the Noordam tied up at
7 a.m. on May 11 at the dock
at Barcelona, the second-largest city in
Spain. Barcelona is a big city, one of
the busiest ports in the Mediterranean,
and culture-wise claims equality with the
greatest European cities. In 1992 host-
ing the Olympic Games, in the Parc de
Montjuic they confirmed this to the rest
of the world. The temperature was sup-
posed to be 68F (20C) and the weather
partly sunny. The forecast was close, on
the lower side, and there was fog and
smog over the hills.
Like other ports we visited, there were
many excursions ranging in price from
$149 for adults, $84 for children to a fla-
menco show with dinner, to an unguided
walk in Barcelona (with audio player) $39
for all ages. Since Barcelona has over 60
miles of separated bicycle paths, a unique
Barcelona by bicycle excursion (traveling
through the old town, sea front, and har-
bor) was available, $114 adults, and $49
children. The ship's doctor, who Peg and
I met in the Lido restaurant, (a resident
of the Tampa area) took his bike off the
Noordam and enjoyed Barcelona by bike.
Since I had visited Barcelona before
and knew the city somewhat, Peggy

. -


The Barcelona bull ring
and I chose to ride the Hop On - Hop
Off sightseeing bus to get a new and
good overall view of the city. Because
the Noordam was going to be berthed
overnight, doing that enabled us to see
a lot quickly and easily, and allowed us
to decide on where we wanted to go for
the rest of the day and the next day until
we had to be back on board to depart
at 3:30 p.m. on May 12. We knew we
wanted to see the absolutely fantastic
Antonio Gaudi Cathedral de la Sagrada
Familia (Holy Family Cathedral). Begun
in 1882, it was far from being finished
when Gaudi died in 1926, but work has
been progressing more rapidly now and it

is hoped that the cathedral will be finished
by 2026, the 100th year of the date
of Gaudi's death. Little did Peggy and I
know that on that very day two of our
Sanibel friends happened to also be at
the Gaudi Cathedral. We didn't see them
although we might have had we been
more observant of the crowd rather than
admiring the Gaudi masterpiece.
The next day, Peggy and I decided
to forgo riding the Funicular to the
Collserola Tower (La Torre) to view the
city because of the fog and smog so we
went shopping. It is a kick, though, so
if you visit Barcelona give the Funicular
a try.

We returned to the ship in plenty of
time to relax and have a late lunch before
the Noordam slipped away on schedule
destined for the excitement of Monte
Carlo. That afternoon Cruise Director
Drew Smith gave a departure briefing for
the passengers debarking at Civitaveccia.
The last formal dinner was great
as usual and ended the night as the
Noordam sailed to Monte Carlo.
As I had predicted the Noordam
did not encounter an iceberg in the
Mediterranean Sea and therefore arrived
on Friday the 13th of May safely, on
time at 10 a.m. in the harbor at Monte
Carlo. (So much for accidents happening
in threes.)
Monte Carlo is as advertised, a small
but mighty city/state. For Sanibelians
who like green, water, beaches, and ani-
mals (yes, even alligators and racoons)
Monte Carlo with its one-on-top-of-the-
other condos, and high-rise buildings, is
an amazing sight. My thought ... it is a
great place to visit but I would never want
to live there. If, however, you are a high
roller, billionaire, movie star, or royalty, it
might just be the place for you.
Our comment to one another was...
"It sure isn't Sanibel... Coco... thank you,
city fathers."
We enjoyed walking around the city,
Hopping on and off (those sightseeing
buses are everywhere and really are great
for getting an initial look). We enjoyed
eating and talking with some of the
natives. I do not think there is any lan-
guage in the world that is not spoken in
Monte Carlo, so communication was easy

PGA Tips
Golf Shots
Against The Wind
by Matt Oakley,
PGA golf profes-
S' TI I e have all
I A A heard the
. V V phrase,
"When it's breezy,
swing easy." This is
a great tip but does
not tell the entire
story of how to hit
effective shots into
the wind. Here are a few more sugges-
tions :
1. Tee Height.
a. Many people will tell you to tee
the ball low to hit a low shot. I disagree.
Teeing the ball low produces a steeper
angle of approach which results in more
spin which tends to make shots rise
against the wind. So, tee the ball higher
against the wind to reduce spin and swing
with a shallow angle of attack.
2. Ball Position.
a. Again many people will say to play
the ball further back in the stance to hit
it low. While this is sound advice I do not
recommend going too far back as it also
creates a descending blow into the ball
which creates spin and makes the ball
actually go higher. I say to play the ball in
the middle of the stance for full shots at
most into the wind.

3. Club Selection.
a. If the shot requires 7-iron length for
you, play a 5-iron and choke down an
inch or so. The 5-iron has much less loft
and that will make it go lower than alter-
ing your swing.
4. Three-quarter Swing Length and
a. To reduce spin take a 3 length
backswing and finish.
b. Take a � speed swing.
5. Hands Lead the Club Head
Through Impact.
a. Concentrate on having the hands
lead the club head into impact. The
hands-ahead position at impact de-lofts
the club and makes it fly lower.
b. I hear the phrase "punch shot" a lot
and I do not like it. That makes me think
of a sharp blow into the ball and that will
create a lot of spin which makes the ball
go higher.#

Sanibel Rider A

Top 10 Fundraiser

Salli Kirkland with the Very Important
Banana character
alli Kirkland of Sanibel has been
named as a VIB and a Top 100
fundraiser by Bike MS: the Citrus
This is Kirkland's third year participat-
ing in the annual 150-mile bike ride from
Lake Wales to Orlando and back on May
14 and 15. The ride attracts about 1,500

cyclists, who raise money for the Multiple
Sclerosis Society and in turn take part
in a lovely and sometimes grueling sup-
ported ride through the rolling hills and
orange groves.
Most of the funds raised are retained
locally to support patients with MS and
their families.
The VIB (Very Important Banana)
is awarded to cyclists raising $1,000.
VIB's recieve a special fundraiser jersey
noting their achievement and are given
special treatment following the ride.
The Top 100 list was compiled on
June 18, the deadline for all fundraising
to be turned in. Kirkland raised $1,590,
which put her at #86 on the list.
Kirkland said, "The generosity of the
people in this community inspires me to
keep riding and raising money. MS is a
disease which affects many people my
age. I always feel grateful after meeting
so many people whose lives are affected
by this crippling disease. I continue
to ride because I am lucky enough to
be able to. I continue to raise money
because I see the need is great, even
right here in my own community."
Bike MS rides are held in many states
and Kirkland encourages all bike riders
to consider participating. Shorter rides
are optional and training help is avail-
able on their website (Google bike MS).
Teams form in many communities so
cyclists can train and fundraise together.
Kirkland rides with Team Grupetto out
of Tampa, but is looking for local inter-
est. She can be reached at Billy's Bike
Shop, 472-3620.0

Life Begins At 80 For Jack Mckeon
As He Takes Over Managing
The Losing Florida Marlins
by Ed Frank
A t 80 years old can you imagine the rigors, the daily grind,
and the pressures of managing a Major League baseball
team - a team that is on track to record the most losses in
' -4 a single month in franchise history?
At 80 years old, can you imagine climbing aboard an airplane
at midnight after a late night game, flying across the country,
arriving in the wee hours of the morning and then preparing for
another game that same day?
-.J# rAnd at 80 years old, can you imagine roaring out of the dug-
out to protest an umpire's call or handling the daily barrage of
questions from an often belligerent press?
These are the staggering tasks, and many more, facing cigar-smoking Jack McKeon
who took over last week as manager of the Florida Marlins that were 3-22 for the
month of June through early this week.
McKeon was summoned to take charge of the Marlins on June 20 after they had
gone 1-19 in an historic collapse. Just 20 days previously, they began the month nine
games over .500 (31-22). According to the Elias Sports Bureau, no team had ever
racked up a 1-19 record after being nine games over .500.

Whether the Octogenarian McKeon
can rescue the Marlins as he did eight
years ago when he guided them to a
World Series title remains a question mark.
Through his first six games, the Marlins
were 2-4.
It is almost certain that McKeon is only
a stop-gap manager for the remainder of
the 2011 season. And when the Marlins
move into their new stadium next season,
don't be surprised if the current Chicago -
White Sox manager, Ozzie Guillen, is the '
new field boss.
Only six games into his newest manage-
rial stint, McKeon experienced an inexcus- / \
able pitching blunder by one of his pitch-
ers, Steve Cishek, that resulted in a 2-1
Marlins' loss.
While attempting to intentionally walk
the Seattle Mariners' Carlos Peguero,
Cishek threw a wild pitch allowing Dustin
Ackley to score from third base with the
winning run.
"I have never had it happen to me in all Jack McKeon
my years, McKeon said.
This bizarre blunder is emblematic of the Marlins June woes.
You've got to wonder why McKeon would agree to walk into the Marlins mess at
his age? The answer is probably a mixture of the following:
He knew the players as he was on the Marlins payroll as a consultant. He was
available immediately and because he has no long-term aspirations for the job, he
wasn't concerned about front-office politics.
Finally, despite his age, McKeon has the reputation as a taskmaster who demands
that his players play hard and intelligent baseball. It appears that Cishek hadn't got
that message last Sunday.
Not a single player on the current Marlins roster had even been born when
McKeon landed his first job as manager with the Kansas City Royals in 1973. In
fact, his span from that job to this recent stint with the Marlins - 38 years - has
been exceeded by only Connie Mack who lasted 56 years because he also owned the
Philadelphia Athletics.
If you want to witness baseball history in the making, drive over to South Beach
and watch the 80-year-old McKeon manage the Marlins. The way they are playing,
you sure won't have trouble getting a ticket.
Miracle Sponsor Two Big Fireworks Shows This Weekend
Perhaps two big fireworks extravaganzas tonight, Friday, and Sunday night will
serve to snap the season's second-half losing start for the Fort Myers Miracle baseball
After finishing the first-half with a 34-36 record and a second place standing in the
Florida State League South Division, the Miracle began the second-half losing four
The Miracle hosts the St. Lucie Mets tonight at 7:05 p.m. with the fireworks show
to follow the game. St. Lucie was the South Division first-half champions.
Charlotte provides the opposition Saturday and Sunday. The Saturday game has a
6:05 p.m. start and Sunday, 7:05 p.m. again followed by fireworks.

a check for $250 to

School Smart
- by Shelley M. Greggs, NCSP
Adolescent Development: Physical Development

physical devel-
during the
teen years is rapid
and extraordinary.
There are several
growth spurts with
rapid gains in
height and weight.
Girls tend to have
their growth spurt earlier than boys
with their weight gain from new body
fat that grows to protect their reproduc-
tive organs. Weight gain in boys is from
increased muscle development.
Another significant physical change
in teens involves their sleep needs and
habits. According to information on
teen sleep habits from the Mayo Clinic,
the teenage internal body clock (circa-
dian rhythm) is temporarily reset, telling
teenagers to fall asleep later and wake
up later. In teens, the natural brain
hormone melatonin is produced later
at night than in children and adults,
making it harder for teens to fall asleep
early. Teenagers need at least nine
hours of sleep nightly; however given
the early start of school, studying, after
school jobs and extra curricular activi-
ties, very few manage to get the sleep
they need.
Teenage brains continue to grow
and develop contrary to previous views
about brain development being com-

pleted at the onset of adolescence. New
research and information from UCLA
now indicates that the brain continues
to change into the early 20s with the
frontal lobes, which are responsible for
reasoning and problem solving, develop-
ing last.
Puberty results in many biological
changes and the sexual development of
adolescents. These changes signify that,
biologically, adolescents are now matur-
ing sexually and becoming interested in
sex. Exploration and expression of their
sexuality such as the choice to become
sexually active, sexual orientation and
gender identity become extremely
important for teens as they face the
many questions that sexual maturity
Given these new physical devel-
opments, what do we see in teens?
Teenagers need more sleep to sustain
these new changes. They may seem
clumsier because of the growth spurts
and because body parts do not all
develop at the same rate. Body image is
a major concern for teens, particularly
girls. There may be significant worries
about weight and serious eating disor-
ders can develop during adolescence.
Teenagers may also be anxious about
the rates of their development. If they
develop too quickly or too slowly they
often feel out of place and may have
problems fitting in with their peers.

Teens that mature earlier often have
unrealistic expectations placed upon
them by peers and adults. Those whose
development is slower than average are
frequently teased and left out. Certainly
teenagers will be interested in sex and
will ask questions, trying to figure out
their values.
When parents and teens are knowl-
edgeable about what changes and
behaviors to expect during adolescence,
they can cope with this transition more
effectively. Here are some other sugges-
* Don't criticize or compare the teens
to others.
* Encourage teens to get enough
sleep and let them sleep extra late on
days when they do not have morning

teacher position gives me room to put
my creativity and knowledge to good use.
I absolutely love learning, and here at
'Ding' Darling I learn new things about
the environment around me every day."

'60s. Coached by
Red Auerbach and
led by Bill Russell,
Tommy Heinsohn,
KC Jones, John Havlicek and Bob

onship tradition that leads to today.
Something that caught my eye recently
was a picture of a sign that hung in their
locker room during those years. It said:
The game is scheduled - we have to
play - might as well win it!
I think that sign can be applied to
a lot of things about life. Since I'm an
estate planning specialist and this col-
umn is about estate planning, I'll apply it
to that. Some folks are reluctant to work
on their estate planning. Sometimes it's
because of procrastination, other times
it's a fear of confronting one's own
mortality; there are obviously a variety
of other reasons.
But the game is scheduled. None of
us will live forever and most of us will
face a period of incapacity prior to our

Awards $400,000

In Scholarships
The Southwest Florida Community
Foundation awarded more than
$400,000 in scholarships to local
students during its recent award cycle.
Community foundation scholarships are
given to high school seniors who will
continue their education at the univer-
sity, community college or vocational/
technical school level, as well as to
undergraduate and graduate students
continuing a post-secondary education.
According to Julia East, the founda-
tion's president and CEO, "This year's
scholarship cycle was different in that
we were able to accept and process
applications completely online." The
resulting efficiency benefitted founda-
tion staff and volunteers as well as the
applicants. "This is a case where an

The Southwest Florida Community

Hendry and Collier counties since 1976.
With assets of over $60 million, the
community foundation has provided
more than $49 million in grants and

and downs of life are well chronicled
and anyone who's an adult knows that
our adventure has an end at some time.
So we might as well win it.
How do you apply that to your estate
plan? Well, we all know that we have
to plan our legal and financial lives.
There's no getting around that. Whether
we have a large estate or a modest
estate, everyone has to have a budget
and a means to plan for their day-to-day
living expenses and retirement. We also
know that each and every one of us is
likely to become disabled at some point
in life and therefore need to put into
place a succession plan for someone to
manage our affairs if we become unable
to manage our own.
Finally, and I know this will come as
a great shock to many of you, we all are
going to die one day. That means we
have to put a succession plan in place
for our family. We want to take care of
our spouse and/or other loved ones in
a responsible manner. We all have ideas
how we want the stewardship of our
assets to follow, and we all have goals
and dreams for those we leave behind.

Insurance Tip


by Marge Meek
asic to every
or condo
insurance policy
is your occupancy
status. If you are
a property owner
who lives here full-
time, your policy is
written as owner-
occupied primary.
With that comes worldwide liability and
usually pre-defined coverages based
on the dwelling coverage amount.
Discounts are given for this type of poli-
cy and if this is you, read no further.
Seasonal policies mean that the
property owner occupies the building
for specific periods each year, usually
winter, and there are three or more con-
secutive months during the year when
the property is not occupied.
There can be a combination of
owner and tenant occupancy. Some
companies may require a central fire
and burglar alarm or that the property
be located in a gated and/or guarded
community. Insurance rating factors
are typically higher, but some insurance
companies offer premises only liability

Why the growing interest in bringing
a little bit of the outdoors inside? First,
we long for peace and quiet at home.
As our lives outside our homes become
more harried and stressful, we are turning
to our homes as retreats and decorating
them with furnishings and accessories we
find soothing and comfortable,
Secondly, our increased awareness
of the environment and the quest to
preserve its beauty has led to a desire to
bring bits of it home.
Here's a look at several areas of interi-
or design that can get you back to nature.
Fabrics. Bouquets of colorful botani-
cals with flower, leaf and vine prints are
perennial favorites. Imagine relaxing in
a lush garden where flowers flourish all
around you - soft violets, delicate lilies of
the valley, bold hydrangeas and stately
red tulips. Fun, faux animal prints remain
popular - even zebra stripes and leopard

spots will lend an air of the exotic to any
Colors. From gorgeous garden
shades to the rich fruit tones of deep
raspberries, soft banana yellows, plums
and strawberries. Even nature's neutrals
are also playing their important role -
wheat brown, amber waves of grain, the
creamy whites of magnolia blossoms and
terra cotta corals all highlighted by an
amazing azure blue sky. All these colors
are uplifted by nature's green - the color
that will dominate our interior decorating
in this decade - from deep, leafy green to
teal, to greens with a yellow tint.
Furnishings. Today's worn weath-
ered wood styles, featuring more of a
matte finish with lighter wood tones are
even appearing on contemporary furnish-
ings. Sofas and chairs are being covered
in natural cotton and sport trims of raffia
and hemp. Wicker and rattan furniture
mixed with warm wood tones lend them-
selves to more of a casual style of deco-
Wall Coverings. Fabrics, florals
and botanicals are blooming in their
popularity as wall coverings. Don't worry
about too much pattern; these bloom-
ing designs look great when mixed with
stripes, checks or even plaids.
Window Treatments. Floral print
drapery fabrics designed in a traditional
swag and jabot treatment will definitely
give any room a perennial touch. And
by coordinating your "blooming" window
treatments with furniture, bedding - even
your linens - you'll find yourself surround-
ed by Mother Nature's beauty.

Our love of Earth and the resurgence
to preserve it influences us to bring
nature's colors into our homes and our
everyday lives. And what better way to
start soothing the soul than in your own
home. Relax! Enjoy! You deserve it!

It's Hot Out
There, Isn't It?
by Bryan Hayes
on't you love
.| when people
' L say, "Is it hot
- "- enough for ya?"
What are you sup-
, posed to say? Nah,
S . I like it when I feel
01 j like I'm baking,
or being baked -
whichever version
you prefer. Why
don't you just throw in some 100 per-
cent humidity and I'll be just swell - bak-
ing and glistening all at the same time.
Well, as the title implies, it sure gets hot
here, but there are certain things that
can be done to make us as comfortable
as possible.
With the advent of modern technology
we have the cure - air conditioning. Just
imagine for a moment where we would
be in the state of Florida without air con-
ditioning. Would we even want to live
here? I wouldn't. I don't particularly enjoy
being baked. We rely on air conditioning
to keep us cool, dry and comfortable,
and as with all mechanical equipment, it
requires a certain amount of upkeep.
In addition to A/C there are other
ways to help keep the air in your home
cooler and save money at the same time.
Here are some tips that should help:

very least once a year by a state certified
air conditioning contractor. The money
spent for this check is almost always
saved in energy bills and even more so, it
prevents a great deal of trouble down the
road. Little hint: A/C systems all seem to
break down at the same time - when it
gets hot. So stay ahead of the curve and
get your system checked before it's too
unbearable to be without.
* Keep your ceiling fans going 24
hours a day, seven days a week. The
amount of energy that is required to run
your air conditioning for one hour could
run all of the ceiling fans in your home
for 24 hours. This is not to say that you
can turn your air conditioning off - please
don't, you'll put me out of business - but
you may be able to run your A/C a little
warmer because of the evaporative effect
created by the air movement created by
the ceiling fans.
* Prevent that sunshine from coming
in during the hottest times. Natural light is
a wonderful thing for keeping the micro-
organisms from growing, but it is one of
the major contributing heat sources infil-
trating our homes. So close the blinds on
the sunny side of the house and keep that
room from getting too hot.
* Keep that fridge coil clean. This
may sound like a strange suggestion but
your fridge coil is the part that distributes
the heat out of your refrigerator. If the
coil is dirty the system has to run longer,
doing two things: raising your electric bill
and adding more heat to the conditioned
space that needs to be removed. A fridge
brush can usually be obtained at a hard-
ware store. If they don't have them in

stock, I bet they'll order one for you.
* While taking showers and baths, run
your bathroom exhausts. The heat and
moisture created by bathing really adds
to the load of your A/C system. Let it
run for at least 10 minutes after you are
done. Better yet, have a timer/switch
installed on your bathroom exhaust; that
way you don't leave it running all day.
* Cooking adds a tremendous amount
of heat that needs to be removed. So
cook on the grill with your family a cou-
ple of times a week.
* And last but not least, drink plenty
of water. Our bodies have their own cool-
ing system that requires a tremendous
amount of fluid to work at peak perfor-
mance. Not to mention that it's good for

New Location For
Community Foundation
he Southwest Florida Community Foundation has relocated to 8771 College
Parkway, Building 2, Suite 201, Fort Myers, FL 33919, between South
Pointe Boulevard and Winkler Road on College Parkway in South Fort Myers.
According to Julia East, president and CEO of Southwest Florida Community
Foundation, the larger facility provides about 3,100 more square feet to allow for the
nonprofit's current and future growth.
"We have almost doubled our floor space," said East. "This is something we've
needed to do for a while now, but have had to wait for the right opportunity. The new
space allows us to stretch out a bit, increase the size of our nonprofit resource area
and hold more events on-site."
As for future needs, East pointed out the larger building enables the foundation to
adapt to its anticipated growth. "The community foundation is all about sustainabil-
ity and making sure both present and future community needs are considered. Our
stretching out, then, is really more about reaching out to the community even better."
The community foundation's phone numbers, fax number, email addresses and
website address will remain the same.
The Southwest Florida Community Foundation has been supporting the communi-
ties of Lee, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry and Collier counties since 1976. With assets of
more than $60 million, the community foundation has provided more than $49 mil-
lion in grants and scholarships to the communities it serves.

First Aid Ointment
From Calendula
by Suzy Cohen, RPh
4a D It seems
my kids spend the
summer getting
bumped and bruised.
Can you recommend
a natural remedy to
treat all those boo-
PE, Clackamus, Oregon
Yes, I have just the thing. Not too
long ago, a friend of mine took a nasty
spill while riding her bicycle. She shared
the details of what happened with me,
and today, I will share her story with
you. My friend's next-door neighbor
asked politely how she was doing after
the minor accident, and she confessed
to her neighbor that everything hurt.
"I have just the thing," the neighbor
responded and ducked inside her house,
emerging a moment later with a jar of
calendula cream. Calendula (Calendula
officinalis) is an herb that has been used
safely all over the world for centuries,
specifically for wound healing.
My friend decided to give her neigh-
bor's cream a try, since she trusted the
source. She trusted her because the lady
had raised five teenagers who played
every sport from soccer to volleyball. If
this stuff came with the soccer mom's
seal of approval, it had to be effective.

As my friend relayed her story to me,
I became excited to write about it too,
since there are no prescription drugs or
salves that do all that calendula can. My
friend dabbed the cream on her bruises
and scrapes, took a nap and woke up
significantly better. Within days, she was
as good as new.
This inspired me to research calen-
dula. I wish I knew about it when my
children were young. A few European
studies have concluded calendula to
help soothe wounds and improve heal-
ing. It has antifungal, antiviral, and even
anti-tumor properties! I think calendula
would be fantastic for cradle cap and
diaper rashes, or any rash for that mat-
ter. You can use it on minor burns,
sunburn, bedsores, eczema and poison
ivy. A small study proved it can ease
the pain of radiation-induced dermati-
tis. Calendula may improve acne too.
Health food stores and online retailers
sell calendula in cream, lotions, oint-
ments or tinctures. You'll see various
brands and companies selling it, a
few of which include Boiron, Weleda,
California Baby and Hyland's.
If you are creating a first-aid cabinet,
I highly recommend you include calen-
dula. Put it next to your hydrocortisone
and tea tree oil. Calendula is so safe you
can literally eat the beautiful yellow flow-
ers from which the cream is made, so
long as you're not allergic to flowers in
the daisy or marigold family. Calendula
extract imparts a beautiful yellow color,
so it's used as a natural coloring agent
in cuisines around the world. Lately, I've
been buying the fresh (and edible ver-
sion) of flowers from my natural grocer

Dear Mom & Me,
I am a single woman - a retired career
educator. My career was foremost so
I never married, but I now realize how
much I have missed.
After I retired I was thrilled to be able
to stay in my home and enjoy the many
pleasures. But I now realize that this can-
not go on too much longer and I must
make a change, as I am completely on
my own with no family.
I have interviewed many complexes

A: Perhaps you could initiate some
healthy snacks at the office by bringing
something in yourself such as a tray of
veggies and fruit with a yogurt dip? It is
healthy and you can even purchase the
prepared trays at the grocery store. Feel
free to talk with your co-workers and
see if they will get on the band wagon

terrified that I will not have the financial
resources to see me to the end, and then
I will be out on the street. What do I do
Dear Ada,
In today's economy, many singles
and married people are having the same
problem as you. Nobody knows for sure
what is ahead.
I would suggest that you get all of the
information you can about your financial
position and seek the counsel of an expe-
rienced, older financial advisor; maybe
she/he will have the answer for you.
So far as what you have "missed,"
many married women envy you. They
would have loved having a career and all
of the glamour in your life rather than a
life of domesticity.
Dear Ada,
What's to regret? What did you miss?
You made a life for yourself as a single
professional. You can make a life for
yourself as a retired single professional.
Being married is not a requirement
to participate in social activities and net-
working. Many single women (divorced
or widowed) are enjoying rich social lives.
The key is you need to take an active
role in creating your social connections
through church, senior centers, local
parks and recreation programming.
Lizzie and Pryce's email address is�

with you and prepare healthy snacks to
bring into the office.
I know that some companies have
employee wellness programs through a
wellness center and even have walking
groups during their lunch hour or after
work. If your office does not partake in
that, talk with your co-workers and see
if anyone might be interested in starting
a wellness program for employees.
Rethink eating anything that is high
in calories and especially those foods
that are from a vending machine.
Perhaps you and your co-workers could
also take turns bringing in healthy
snacks once per week. Maybe everyone
could bring in a different fruit each day
of the week. Research shows that eating
a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables
is the best way to get disease-fighting
antioxidants. Remember that balance is
the key, using your mind, body, spirit
and emotions all around in healthy way.

Whiplash Wiles
by Dr. Dave
rue story here
(and these
are rare).
I'd coaxed ol'
Ichiro, my Toyota
Rustbucket, to a
law abiding stop
at the corner of
a busy intersec-
tion. Cranking
my creaky cranky neck hard to port to
check for traffic prior to lunging out into
the wilds of downtown traffic, I suddenly
felt an explosion in Ichiro's backside and
I was instantly and violently launched
onto Main Street somewhat sooner
than originally planned. I had been rear-
ended, but not by an Escort (the car) or
a Toyota Tin Can or a 92-year-old com-
missionnaire on a moped, but rather by
an armored truck! No guff.
Stunned, more than usual, I got out
of my car to survey the remains of my
rear end when two guards got out of the
Brinks, with guns. "Hey listen," I urgently
urged, "If you keep those guns holstered,
I'll say it was my fault. Heck, I'll say I was
Now, though a Sherman tank had
tried to mate with my Toyota, I honestly
wasn't upset as these fender benders
are seldom intentional, hockey parking
lots excluded. And though I wasn't hurt
or upset about my first ever MVA, or at
least the first one that I hung around for,
I noticed that my hands were actually
shaking like Mohammed Ali working a
jack hammer. I was quite studious of my
involuntary fight or flight reaction and
as fleeing was not an option I decided to
take a swing at the 7-foot-four guard's
jaw and...
Dave, you promised a true story.
Alright, fact was, I felt no pain until
later that night when my neck began to
stiffen. By morning I felt like I'd been hit
by an armored truck which is apparently
not all that unusual when you've been
hit by an armored truck. My left arm
was now buzzing and tingling and my
left shoulder was not an overly happy
I called my doctor, who in his kind,
considerate manner suggested that
"You're a doctor, what do you need
me for?" obviously forgetting that it is
illegal for a doctor to prescribe himself
heavy duty narcotics. I called my lawyer
who, realizing that he didn't have to run
down and post bail again for prescribing
myself heavy duty narcotics, was actually
excited to hear from me.
"A Brinks truck? Really?? Dave, this
is a sign from God!"
Now this is often where the games
begin. Over the years I have seen a
trumpzillion patients with whiplash, a
condition where your intestinal whip-
worms get jerked so hard that their eye-
lashes fall off.
Most of you who are hurtin' a couple
of weeks after an accident are legit but
there are some of you who are faking it.
I have news for you... we know. How,
you ask? Well I shan't tell you all of our

secrets but simply put, we are watch-
ing you, and not only via surveillance
with the Nano Oompa Loompas with
their NanoNikons we surreptitiously
insert into your ear when we examine
you. We watch how you react as you
perform certain tests to see if the pain
you're expressing is consistent with the
injury. We also have methods to deter-
mine exaggeration, which again, I could
tell you about, but I won't.
But what I can reveal is that the
truly objective findings such as palpable
inflammation is something we can
detect over the injured areas and not in
uninjured areas. Muscle spasm, range of
motion and fixation of the joints cannot
be effectively faked. In fact, there was
a study done in which a set of doctors
treated patients including real whiplash
victims and "ringers" who were not
injured but trying to fake a whiplash. In
not a single case were any of the doc-
tors fooled.
Another unusual study found that
rodeo riders who suffered whiplash in
a car accident actually got better and
returned to work twice as fast as non-
bronc busters. And "returning-to-work"
isn't exactly riding a steno chair or light
duties on a Brahma bull. Is this because
they are better athletes to start with or
because they are just tougher or because
of both? Well undoubtedly, if we are
already a flimsy weak-necked Ichabodish
Crane type we might take a lot longer
to get better. So when you are doing
your regular resistance workouts, don't
forget your neck.
Personally, I felt like I was getting
better but my lawyer thought he noted
that I had more blackheads than before
and that I was dressing more and more
like Lady Gaga. He also, very percep-
tively, deduced that I was suffering loss
of enjoyment of life in that he noted I

hadn't bungee jumped naked a single
time since the accident. Well, of course
not, F Lee. Wouldn't want to get whip-

Memorial. The services currently offered
at JBH, which include partial hospital-
ization, medication management, and
intensive outpatient therapy, will remain
the same and all of the current staff
are being asked to stay on. The name
will change to The Behavioral Health
Center when the agreement goes into
effect July 1.
"We were immediately interested
when we were approached to acquire
JBH," said Lisa Sgarlata, chief admin-
istrative officer for Lee Memorial
Hospital. "We have had a close work-
ing relationship with them through
their partial hospitalization program for
a number of years, and consider the
services they provide to the community
essential." Sqarlata will assume adminis-

ISLAND SUN - JULY 1, 2011 29B
trative responsibility over operations at
the Behavioral Health Center.
The cost of the acquisition is
$250,000 and Lee Memorial Health
System will assume the lease on JBH's
office space located at 12550 New
Brittany Boulevard in Fort Myers. The
Lee Memorial Health System board of
directors approved the lease assumption
at its board meeting on June 23.
The system has had a contract for
several years to provide placement of
inpatient and emergency room patients
to JBH's outpatient mental health ser-
vices. "This is an example of providing
the right care in the right setting for
our behavioral health patients," said
Sgarlata. "It provides a benefit to the
community by continuing a needed
service, and it frees up hospital beds by
placing the patients into an appropriate,
and less costly, care setting."O

End Of

The Cruise

A view of our balcony stateroom

Closeup of Cathedral Tower

Monte Carlo vista from docked Noordam
and the natives make spending euros
even easier.
By the way, to enter the world famous
Monte Carlo Grand Casino, one must be
properly attired, and that means formal.
Peggy and I dressed casually and saw
the sights, and let others keep Monte
Carlo green and rich by losing their multi-
colored euros.
Back on the ship we had dinner,
packed and got ready for a good night's
sleep and an early exit from the ship. The
bags were set outside of our stateroom
after we ensured we had clothes to wear
in the morning. (Amazingly some passen-
gers unwittingly packed all their clothes in
their bags and were shocked when in the
morning the bags were gone, and they
had no clothes to wear)

At daybreak we left another gratuity
for our steward as we docked, gathered
up our backpacks, went to enjoy our last
Noordam breakfast, and debarked as our
numbers were called. Our bags safely in
the bus, we boarded the bus to take us
to Fiumicino International AirPort (FCO)
and waved goodbye to the Noordam as it
was prepared to welcome passengers for
its continuing cruise in the Mediterranean.
We were ready for our flight and three-
day visit to Dublin, Ireland, then a flight to
London, and the American Airlines Flight
101 home to the USA after 21 days of
fun, food, travel, and adventure.
We learned a lot of things, met many
wonderful people, had many fun adven-
tures and saw and experienced many new
and exciting things.

Hotel Manager Mark Pells, we
learned, will soon become a southwest
Florida resident and neighbor in Cape
Coral. I told him it was a shame that
he hadn't met Mark and Teresa Baker,
Realtors and friends, who drove to FLL
and picked us up, just to make certain
we got home to Sanibel safely after the
long day and tiring flights. I also told Pells
that they will help him find an affordable
home on Sanibel. Pells is a nice guy,
and it would be fun to have him living on
Thanks also to Al and Julie Gettemy
for taking care of our house, mail etc.,
while we were away. And last but not
least, thanks to all of you who have taken
the time to read the four chapters of our
trip. Your kind comments are greatly
appreciated. It is great to be home.
Next year we will travel in the USA,
and if you want, we'll write about adven-
tures at home.#

Feline Friends Need A Home

S y oda (black, a S r
male) and
Lily (tiger stripe,
young female)
friends. They are
both very sweet
former PAWS
Their foster
Mom loved them
so much, she
could not bring
herself to adopt
them out, but
now Soda and
Lily (hopefully Lily and Soda
together) need
homes so that PAWS can take in more rescues.
Soda came to PAWS as a stray with a broken hip. After surgery and much TLC,
he has fully recovered. Lily was found as a stray wandering around The Community
They are completely healthy, spayed and nuetered and come with their vet
records. If you would like to share your life with these two best buddies, call Pam at
PAWS at 472-4823.0

Adopt Jake
AWS is trying to help longtime
Sanibel resident Bobbie Craig,
find a home for her beloved
seven-year-old cocker spaniel, Jake.
Craig has been a Sanibel resident for
over 35 years, but after two recent falls,
she has been relocated to an assisted
living center in Orlando that does not
allow pets.
Jake would do best with someone
who can spend a lot of time with him,
which is what he has been used to. He
likes his long walks at the bay.
Since being separated from Bobbie,
Jake seems to gravitate towards women
and is fearful of some men. He has a
sweet, gentle personality, gets along
with other dogs and likes children.
Contact Craig's daughter, Jenny
Craig, at 541-480-6831 if you can

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.
