ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 20114 Dresses Galore At PACE PartyResidents of Sanibel and Captiva along with PACE supporters from off-island gathered Thursday, August 11 at Tahitian Gardens on Sanibel for the second annual Love That Dress! collection party sponsored by The Royal Shell Companies and its employees, Mark Blust of The Prawnbroker Restaurant Group, and Robert McDonald of New Beginnings Events. After a week of downpours, the skies cleared and the stage was set. The merchants at Tahitian Gardens opened their doors and their hearts to support the wonderful work PACE does in Lee County (http://www.pacecenter.org/lee/). Store owners worked closely with each other to create the models outfits. Models chatted with attendees about their outfits and accessories and where each item could be purchased. Each store donated to the Chinese auction and has contributed 10 percent of the evenings proceeds to PACE. Those visiting all the stores were eligible for a special basket drawing. This year several gentlemen along with island guests from France and Germany took part and purchased some winning tickets. Thank you Sanibel, Captiva & PACE supporters for your continued support of this event said Barbara Harrington of The Royal Shell Companies. The shop owners of Tahitian Gardens along with the sponsors appreciate your enthusiastic support of the Love That Dress! collection party. To all the moms who took time out of their day to drop off dresses only to have to run home and make dinner, we promise next years party date will not conflict with school starting earlier. The estimated 250 dresses collected at this party are now on their way to the main event which will be August 31 at the Embassy Suites in Estero. Tickets are $25 and are only available online at www.LoveThatDress.org. Dresses for the event are being accepted through August 29 at Adventures In Paradise Outfitters in Tahitian Gardens, 2019 Periwinkle Way. For additional drop off locations visit: www.LoveThatDress.org. For additional information contact Harrington at The Royal Shell Companies, 229-4267.

Since O Negative is the universal blood type, it is transfused into a patient who needs immediate attention in a trauma or emergency situation. Since Lee Memorial Hospital serves a 5-county radius, blood and blood products need to be readily available not only in the trauma center but also to treat cancer patients, premature babies, anemia and other conditions. Lee Memorial Blood Center is the sole supplier of all blood products for Lee Memorial Health System hospitals and no blood is ever exported out of the area. Though the urgent need is for negative blood, all types are welcome as 800 units of blood are used each week to serve the community. Call343-2333 to find a blood center or blood drive near you or visit http:// www.leememorial.org/bloodcenter/index. asp for more information.

Sanibel-Captiva KiwanisKiwanis Kornersubmitted by Eric PfeiferThis week, Dr. Bruce Neill, from the Sanibel Sea School, spoke to us about water quality, fishing and some other stuff. Many Kiwanians were shocked to hear that Neill has been a card-carrying member since 2006. Thats because he works so hard out in the field, he cant make too many breakfasts. Neill ollowed up Dave Godfreys talk last week about START (Solutions To Avoid Red Tide). Although we havent seen a red tide recently, it is always a concern for us here on the gulf coast. START is a statewide organization founded in the early 1990s in Sarasota. Its goal is to ameliorate red tide. Funding has always been an issue for this grass roots organization since the state will not support the research for red tide. Neill mentioned that the SanibelCaptiva chapter is using a state of the art instrument called a brev buster. This plane-ike vessel glides through the water collecting samples to determine oxygen and chlorophyll content. Due to its buoyancy technology, it has the ability to dive down to the bottom and bounce back up for a period up to 50 days. If you happen to catch it on a line or in a cast net, please report it immediately to Dr. Neill. The brev buster can electronically send the data to Mote Marine for interpretation. At the end of its mission, it can be retrieved by way of GPS. START is also involved with the Lee County Public School system and www. CoastalClassroom.org was developed to help educate children about oceanography, pollution and red tide. Another program Neill mentioned involves partnering with the Estero chapter to find sustainable seafood for future generations. Over fishing has some scientists concerned that we will run out of seafood in the next 30 to 40 years. In fact, Neill stated that the shark population is estimated to be down almost 90 percent from 200 years ago. I did not know he was that old, but he probably makes up most of his statistics anyway when speaking to men staring at scrambled eggs and bacon. If you happen to see our president John Morse or Bill Kreutzjans, wish them a Happy Birthday. If you are looking for something to do this summer, please grab your two-for-one Kiwanis Dinner Book, and go out for a night on the town. If you have not yet purchased your books, there are still a few left at the Sanibel Captiva Community Bank and Bank of The Islands.

This work will not interfere with access or usage of any of the beaches and will take approximately two weeks to complete. The two-week survey began Tuesday, August 9. This years monitoring project has been awarded to Sea Diversified, Inc. in the amount of $68,250, half of which is funded by the Lee County Tourist Development Council with the remaining half being funded by beach parking fees. The project is part of a continuing effort to collect and analyze beach profile data. Those with questions regarding the project may call the public works department at 472-6397. Bike Path Maintenance ContinuesThe City of Sanibels annual repairs to the shared use paths began Monday, August 8 and are expected to take 45 days. For safety, the areas under repair will be barricaded off from users, according to Sanibel Public Works Director Gates Castle. All path users are reminded to use caution while navigating around construction zones. Every year the city inspects all 22.6 miles of Sanibels paths and prioritizes the needs for repairs. This years repairs total $155,952. Those with questions about the project may contact the public works department at 472-6397. The shared use path on Tarpon Bay Road is undergoing repairs.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 20118 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellGive a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Chinese proverb Sanibel Captiva Rotary guest speaker last week was ECHOs Russ Luther, faith relations manager. Luther said, For the last 30 years, that proverb sums up the work being done at a truly astonishing non-profit organization ECHO (Education Concern for Hunger Organization) located within the community of North Fort Myers, Florida. ECHO is a global, interdenominational Christian organization that equips people with agricultural resources and skills to reduce hunger and improve the lives of the poor. If you have never visited ECHOS incredible working farm and educational campus in North Fort Myers (Rotary took a tour through the farm a couple of years ago), you certainly are missing an outstanding opportunity to observe a global farm situated on 55 acres containing over 350 different tropical plants including areas that represent different climate zones (hot humid lowlands, tropical highlands, tropical monsoon, semi-arid tropics, and an urban garden setting). These climate zones are for the experimentation of plant and crop varieties that may be cultivated in various parts of the world; areas which are and have been devastated by weather extremes, lack of water, poor soil nutrition, stability and a variety of poor growing conditions. ECHO studies and experiments with irrigation techniques, crop rotation, techniques that stop hillside earth erosion, soil treatment, recycled container growing in urban settings such as concrete parking lots and rooftop sites and what can be grown in poor growing environments around the globe. Plant growing and seed production is the key for sustainable food sourcing. The seed bank at ECHO produces 1,400 packets of seed a month which are sent around the world, free for the asking. Farmers around the world plant ECHO seeds and report back on their success or failure. Reports and research work is shared and data is exchanged, ECHO sends out 2,400 documents a month by computer to anyone helping to feed the poor including a network of 35 worldwide organizations that include the Peace Corps, World Hunger Organization and the United Nations. ECHO is having a worldwide impact on feeding the poor with affordable solutions. The farm at ECHO is also a teaching and training laboratory, a living classroom for select college graduates who spend a year working the farm learning food crop viability and seed propagating using problem-solving techniques including irrigation methods, soil enrichments and soil stability methods. The reference library at ECHO contains thousands of books, articles, pertinent reports and instructions, as well as hundreds of research papers. Luther said, The world population post WWII was 4 billion; 1999 was 6 billion, and 2011, 7 billion; our population explosion has increased by l billion people within just over 10 years. There are currently food shortages in many parts of the world and demand for food is increasing; already there is food inequity among nations and food riots. ECHO is working toward helping develop sustainable crops in the most needy areas of the globe. These plant crops not only provide a nutritional and healthy food supply but can enrich the soil and maintain a stable growing environment for future planting. Band-Aid aid to feed the hungry will only provide a temporary solution, sustainable aid is now the goal for maintaining a healthy future for countries in need. ECHO is working on sustainable solutions. Upcoming Rotary speakers: August 19, Shannon Vicksler, nurse practitioner, Shell Point office of Dr. Haiken, topic Skin Cancer & Prevention; August 26, Rotary District #6960 Assistant Governor Patricia Bell; September 9, Birgie Vertesch, executive director, Ding Darling Wildlife Foundation; September 16, Jo Marshall, SHINE (Senior Health Insurance Network Education), Florida Department of Elder Affairs.

This occasion heralds the culmination of over one year of cooperation between the church and community leaders. The existing Family Life Center will also be getting a facelift during the construction phase in order to house the growing Childrens Ministry on the first floor, and Youth Ministry to teens on the second floor. Sanibel Community Church in recent years has had sustained growth in their children and youth ministries.

Sanibel Community Church is located on 1740 Periwinkle Way, next to Jerrys. A reception with light refreshments will follow the groundbreaking. Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club Unveils New Basketball HoopThe Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club recently said thank-you to the Sanibel Fire and Rescue Department for its generosity in loaning the club a trailer the last several years for the July 4 parade. Rotarians presented a $300 check to Capt. Michael Scott to purchase a new backboard and basketball hoop for the firehouse. Rotarian Jack Luiszer came up with the idea when he went over to the firehouse to talk about borrowing the trailer again this year. While there, he noticed a rotted-out basketball stand and hoop left out for trash pickup. A light bulb went off and Luiszer presented the idea of replacing the basketball hoop for the firefighters in appreciation of their help with the float andthank them Sanibel for doing an outstanding job. Last Friday, a few Rotarians attended the unveiling of the basketball backboard and hoop and shot a few baskets. The previous hoop was located in the back parking lot and unusable during extreme hot weather and rainy season now the inside hoop will provide a more comfortable way of exercising along with recreation.

He thanks everyone for helping to make his life a stimulating journey and learning experience. He had been a resident of Sanibel for more than a decade. Here, he pursued his lifelong love of nature, which he said had become almost a religion to him. Some of his favorite times were spent as a volunteer for the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. He loved being out on the paths and drives of the preserve, counting birds and also sharing his knowledge with guests in the nature center. He was an avid reader and a regular patron of the Sanibel Library, which allowed him to follow his favorite contemporary authors as well as pursue his longtime interest in Carl Sandburg and Ernest Hemingway. Dick was enthusiastic about art and photography and auto racing, but was perhaps best known to his friends and family as an advocate for the civil rights and peace movements. His avocation, and sometimes full-time job, was as a professional jazz drummer. Dick enjoyed playing bebop, Dixieland, and straight-ahead jazz and the music of artists such as Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk. He also loved the folk music of Woodie Guthrie, Pete Seeger and Joan Baez. He enjoyed a long and rewarding professional career in special education and speech development in St. Louis, Eugene, Oregon, and Minneapolis. Richard was born May 30, 1929 to Carl Henry Reece and Bertha (Bock) Reece in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where he spent his childhood. He pursued a degree in education at the University of Iowa and later at Iowa State Teachers College (now UNI). While in college he met and soon married a fellow Iowan, Agnes Roisen. They had three children together, Randolph William, Deborah Jeanne, and Richard Martin Reece. In 1967, Richard and Agnes divorced, and he later married his life partner, JoAnn (Golle). Richard and JoAnn enjoyed 43 years together as partners and best friends. Dick is survived by his wife JoAnn, brother Don Reece (wife MaryRae), sister Ellen Hynes (husband Jim), son Randy Reece, daughter Debbie Kleinow (husband Ed), son Rick Reece (wife Carol), grandson Richard Allen Reece, granddaughters Sarah Reece-Stremtan (husband Dacian), Mary Mundal (husband Tom), and Cara Reece, and grandson Jonathan Kleinow (wife Natalie), along with eight great-grandchildren, with two more on the way. A life celebration service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, September 10 at All Faiths Unitarian Congregation, 2756 McGregor Boulevard, Fort Myers. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Ding Darling NWR: www.dingdarlingsociety.org or the Iowa National Heritage Foundation: www.inhf. org.

There are more than 7,000 islands, cays, atolls and reefs. The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos islands are not part of the Caribbean and are located in the Atlantic Ocean. The three-masted Grand Turk is familiar to many Americans because the ship is depicted on bottles of Old Spice aftershave and cologne. But her role in American maritime history is far more important and lesser-known. She was Americas first great merchant ship and helped create Americas first millionaire, shipowner Elias Haskett Derby, who made a fortune with her through the black pepper trade. In 1834, due mainly to the salvaging of valuable cargo from wrecked ships, Key West, Florida, had the greatest wealth per capita of any city in the United States. The right side of a boat is referred to as starboard because early astronavigators would stand on a plank (which was on the right side) to get an unobstructed view of the stars. The left is the port side because thats the side you put in on at port. Shellabration 2012 will mark the 75th annual Sanibel Shell Fair and Show.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 201116 Kids And Sharks Go Together Like Kids And Puppiesby Capt. Matt MitchellRain almost every time out last week did not seem to slow down the fishing action at all. Northwest winds and the big high tides they brought had the redfish chewing well and, during the lower water periods, snook fishing around the passes and mouth of the river continued to be productive. I even got to do some shark fishing, which I have not tried for a few weeks. August is always a great time to be on the water with very few boats out. Add to that hit and miss rain and it was almost like having the whole sound to myself. There were a few other guide boats working the passes getting in on the easy snook action but once I left the passes to go redfish fishing there were hardly any other boats even on the most popular shorelines. Working mangrove islands between Maceiver Keys and Cork Key in the southeastern sound, every windblown shoreline seemed to have a few reds on it. I think all the rain has really pushed a lot of redfish out of the river as they seem to be in larger numbers than they have in the past few weeks. With the wind pushing the tide and making it move hard most days, I used a split shot slid all the way down to the cut pinfish. It seemed to make all the difference between hooking up and not even getting a bite. The split shot was just enough to slow the bait down and let the lazy redfish jump all over it. While mangrove fishing for redfish on the high incoming tide, we did also catch a few snook up to 30 inches. All were very dark in color, leading me to believe they are also getting pushed out of the river due to the six inches of rain we experienced in three days in St. James City. The mangrove snook bite was hit and miss but it was good to catch them somewhere else besides in the passes. This week I had back-to-back trips with father and son clients Chris and Christian from South Carolina. After the first day of catching lots of snook in the pass and then finishing up with a non-stop redfish bite, I knew that first trip was going be hard to beat. When I mentioned shark fishing for day two, Christians eyes lit up. With a cooler full of mullet, we headed out to the middle sound. Our first stop was between the south and west clam leases. It did not take long to have a couple of good runs but we just could not get a shark to stick. After about a half hour I pulled anchor and headed to the sure thing on a incoming tide, Rocky Channel. The bite was on right off the bat with blacktips up to five feet enjoying the easy meal of cut fresh mullet. One big blacktip made a 300-yard-plus run and we had to chase it down before we got spooled on the heavy spinning tackle. After a 20-minute fight to get the shark boatside, Christian was worn out and all smiles. Dad Chris just enjoyed watching and coaching his son as he caught shark after shark. We did keep one three-foot blacktip that they took home for dinner and Christian took home the head and jaws to have as a keepsake and to show to his seven-year-old sister. While heading in Christian told me it was the best two days fishing he had ever had, catching the biggest fish of his life. It must be all the shark week shows on TV because it seems to me kids catching sharks just go together like kids and puppies.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.

17 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 2011 From page 19/11 Canvasthe days leading up to September 11. She is escorting a canvas measuring 18 feet by 10 feet around the area. Members of the public are invited to paint the names of those who perished in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. At subsequent locations, different colors will be used for the victims names from the Pentagon and the last two airplanes. Last month 2,753 names from the World Trade Center were painted in red by the community at The Franklin Shops in Fort Myers and Red White Boom in Cape Coral. Iberia Bank and Dennison Moran gallery hosted the events for the names to be painted for United Flight 175 and American Airline Flight 11. In all, the more than 3,000 names will form the base of a painting of an American bald eagle. Lovegrove will be there to assist with the painting of the names. This project has become a gathering place where people share stories and reflect on where they were that day ten years ago. Monitors have been set up so you can view the persons name that was painted. The canvas will be completed by Lovegrove during Remember 9-11 Tenth Year at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre on September 11, beginning at 11:30 a.m. She and many others have partnered with her on this project to make sure that those who lost their lives are never forgotten and to honor those who conducted rescue efforts. Tickets are free and currently available by stopping by the theater ticket office. Members of the NYPD 1013 Local will take part in the event.

19 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 2011 CROW Case Of The Week: Eastern Screech Owlby Emilie AlfinoAn Eastern screech owl was found in the middle of the road on June 28 by William Egbert of Fort Myers as he headed home. I was going down a side street by my house and he was just lying by the road with his wing sticking out, Egbert said. I thought maybe something was wrong with his wing. Egbert drove by at first but when he checked his rear view mirror, it looked like the owl was having trouble, so he backed up and blocked traffic to prevent the little bird from getting hit. Using a towel in his truck, Egbert scopped up the tiny owl, laid him in his lap and drove home. He called a 24-hour veterinarian, who asked whether he could take care of the bird overnight which he could and then drop him off at the Eastside Animal Hospital on Palm Beach Boulevard, one of CROWs drop-off points, in the morning. I put him in a tupperware bin with a couple of towels, Egbert said. He was just a little guy so I put him in my lap. He was a little listless. He was a cute little guy. Dr. Amber McNamara observed that this owl didnt have a lot of external trauma, no bruising was noted, and there were no obvious wounds. Owls are one species whose anatomy allows us to readily see in their eyes and ears, which isnt true of most birds. There was no blood, which was good. But he was essentially recumbent, just lying down, Dr. Amber said. Given where the little bird was found, the doctor believed he was most likely hit by a car. It can be difficult, especially with adult owls, to determine if theyre just playing dead or really injured, Dr. Amber continued. Theyre very good at it, even the babies. Theyll just fall over. They instinctively know how to do it because its their defense mechanism. If the bird is playing dead, though, its usually obvious by the next morning. That held true with this owl, as staff could see he had some pretty major head trauma. He didnt want to stand and would sit in very awkward positions, sometimes with one wing sticking out at a strange and uncomfortable angle. His head would droop and he wasnt standing. We treated him like many of our trauma patients, with several types of pain medications, arnica and some fluids, Dr. Amber explained. He was very dull for about five days. The pain medication was continued and on the sixth night he ate a mouse. Even though he really wasnt as mentally aware as he could have been, he was alert enough to eat. Dr. Amber hoped that showed some progress. The owl continued that behavior for another couple of days, not as mentally aware as he could have been and not reacting to stimulus the way he should have been but he was eating, which was very much in his favor. We could feel his legs getting a little stronger now that he was eating even though he still wasnt standing, Dr. Amber said. We kept him in a small carrier for about a week. Then, since he was eating well, we decided to move him into a cage and offer him a perch for a change of scenery. Within 24 hours, he was up on a perch, which was great. The owl continued to get stronger and more alert over the next three days so his medications were discontinued but he was kept inside. Then on June 17 he went outside to an aviary, where he is now. He looks great: alert, upright he really has made a tremendous improvement, said Dr. Amber. I think hes probably about ready to be released. Dr. Amber believes this owl suffered some traumatic brain injury, probably from a car accident. We didnt see any outward wounds but it took almost two weeks before he was mentally and physically with it, she said. Often CROW staff has no idea not only how an animal was injured but even precisely what the animals injuries are, unless someone sees it happen. In this case, it was a likely assumption that the owl was hit by a car but still just an assumption. Its really hard and we do our best to make them as comfortable as we can and hope we can give them the time they need to improve, Dr. Amber said. When you start to see the little improvements the animal needs to make, thats what youre aiming for.

Having brought along several local and other specimens to show viewers, Leal stated that Sanibel-Captiva is the place to shell. There is a lot to be said about the shape of the islands, the placement of the islands along the Southwest Florida coast and the kinds of currents and waves that we have here that all helps with this big accumulation of shells we see here all the time. Leal was asked if all shells contained living creatures at one point. He answered, All shells are made by mollusks which are animals that will build a shell as they grow. The shell will grow as the animal grows. As for the shell museum, Leal noted that it is still a popular Sanibel stop for families and students alike. The museum is an educational facility and weve been on Sanibel for almost 16 years now, he said. We have several programs for the public. We have about 35 exhibits on shells and a very educational school group program through which we bring virtually all fourth graders from the Lee County public (school) system to visit the museum. We explain the miracle of shells. Leal also encouraged shell lovers to visit the museum. We have a focus on Sanibel and Southwest Florida (shells), but we have shells from the whole world, he said. Its a very affordable attraction and an educational way of spending your time on the islands.

Returning Vet Presents Flag To SupportersOn August 15, Dr. Charles Boggs, a veteran army officer and local surgeon with Associates in General & Vascular Surgery presented an American flag to supporters who sustained him and his fellow soldiers during a recent deployment to Afghanistan. Boggs served in Afghanistan in the field as a trauma surgeon. During his deployment, surgical staff provided useful medical supplies and the Lee Memorial Health System Military support program sent care packages filled with hygiene items, socks, toilet paper, food, magazines, and newspapers. To thank everyone for their support, Boggs will be presenting them with a framed American flag at an informal ceremony. The flag is a source of pride for all Americans so it is especially meaningful to present this one to those people who were so supportive of me and the other military personnel who serve under it, says Boggs. Participating in the presentation with Boggs will be HealthPark Medical Center surgical staff and Kim Gaide, military support coordinator for Lee Memorial Health System. 75th Annual 2012 SHELL SHELL FAIR FAIRSANIBELFebruary 26THRUMarch 4 Read us online at IslandSunNews.com

21 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 2011Cowries Coming To Shell MuseumThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museums much-anticipated cowry shell exhibit will soon makes its debut on Sanibel. The display will be unveiled in the next few weeks, with a grand opening celebration to take place later this year. The exhibit, which was underwritten by part-time Sanibel residents Richard and Jean Rompala, will include cowries, videos and artifacts and text detailing the biology, classification, collectability, diversity, cultural history and impact of cowries. Not only are cowries popular with collectors for their beauty and symmetry, they have been pervasive as currency, clothing and decorative pieces in tropical and subtropical areas around the world. Shell Museum Director Dr. Jos H. Leal is happy to see the cowry project finally coming to fruition. This exhibit will bring the museum literally into the future with the interactive videos we have on living cowries covering all aspects related to this great group of shells, he said. We have to take this opportunity to thank Jean and Richard Rompala for making it possible to sponsor this exhibit.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 201122 Plant SmartSausage Treeby Gerri ReavesTheres no mistaking a sausage tree ( Kigelia africana) during fruiting season, so perfect is the common name. This member of the begonia family bears grey-brown fruits that dangle in clusters of three from long stalks. Each sausage can weigh up to 25 pounds and measure two feet long. The fruit has thin skin and fibrous pulp. In the trees native tropical and southern Africa, the flowers are pollinated by fruit bats and hawk-moths. In South Florida, however, red-bellied woodpeckers, insects and human hands pollinate the large maroon trumpet-shaped flowers. The blooms have velvety interiors and produce a profusion of nectar sought by wildlife. Although beautiful, they emit an unpleasant odor. The trunk is short and squat, the canopy dense and wide-spreading, and the leaves leathery. If youve never seen the remarkable sausage tree, visit the former Florida champion tree at the Edison and Ford Winter Estates, which is 57 feet tall and 140 inches in circumference. The sausage tree isnt just a curiosity, but has many culinary, practical, and medicinal uses. The roasted fruit is used in making beer; the tough wood for shelves, boxes, and canoes; and the roots for dye, among other things. The plants pharmaceutically active compounds give it anti-oxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Do not be tempted by the exotic fruit, which is a purgative that will blister the mouth and skin. The root systems can threaten buildings, paved areas and pools. Even one falling fruit can severely damage a car or injure a person or animal. Sources: kew.org, floridasnature.com, plantzafrica.com, edisonfordwinterestates. org, and biobotanica.com.au. Plant Smart explores sustainable gardening practices that will help you create a low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, hurricaneand pest-resistant South Florida landscape. The sausage tree, a native of tropical Africa, has been planted in South Florida mainly as a curiosity, since the fruit is inedible Falling fruit weighing up to 25 pounds presents a hazard to people, animals, and automobiles Voted as a Top 5 Best Breakfast in Florida By Southern Living Open 7 am 10 pm 7 Days a Week Breakfast t Endless Happy Hour Huge Kids Menu Outside Open 7 am 10 pm 7 Days a Week O p 1 0 p e k e k Voted BEST Family Dining We Pro ud ly y y y We Now Serving Fresh Fresh SEAFOOD Entr ees Daily Veal, Chicken, Pasta & PizzaFEATURING SANIBELS ORIGINAL WOOD FIRED PIZZA OVEN Present this ad and be seated before 5:30 p.m. and we will deduct $2.50 OFFEvery Adult Dinner Entree At MatzalunaNot valid with any other coupon.

Nursing Students Volunteer At Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum Chrissy Lowery, a senior nursing major at Florida Gulf Coast University, is meeting her schools service learning requirement by volunteering several hours a week at the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum. This summer she has assisted Public Programs Specialist Diane Thomas with camp crafts and has helped build the museums award-winning Fourth of July parade float. She also spends several hours a week in the main exhibit hall handing out information to visitors and answering their questions. Lowery recruited her friend, Nicole Marrero, another FGCU senior nursing student, to earn her volunteer hours at the shell museum. Marrero is also splitting her time helping with youth summer camps and working as an exhibit docent. For their training, the young women watched shell-related videos, took a guided tour, and received a comprehensive script containing facts about the museum and its displays. Ive learned a whole lot about shells I never would have learned before, Lowery said of her experience. Its interesting. I never knew there were so many different types of shells and so many types of mollusks and what they can do. Its pretty cool. Lowery said she enjoys meeting visitors from countries around the world and designing artwork with her young campers. I love crafts, she said. Its neat how you can make shell crafts; its pretty creative.

Arts For ACT Opening Exhibit, Artists Reception Join Arts for ACT Gallery, located at 2265 First Street in downtown Fort Myers on Friday, September 2 from 6 to 10 p.m. for the opening reception and art walk for the September featured artists exhibits featuring Philip Heubeck, Sam Brough and Annie St. Martin. Heubeck was born in Augsburg, Germany in 1982 and spent most of his childhood and adolescence in Berlin where he was exposed to various aspects of artistic expression as well as a deep sense for historical context. He moved to Fort Myers with his family in early 2004, where he would eventually graduate from Florida Gulf Coast University with a bachelors in art in 2010. Having started out as a painter, he is now pursuing his work in a wide range of other forms as well, including sculpture, installation, video, sound collage and photography. His career as an artist has continually been gaining momentum, with several solo shows and numerous group shows so far and culminating in the 2010 Angel of the Arts award for Best New Artist. Said Heubeck, A work of art can only be successful if it follows its own inherent nature, its own rightness. It is the artists task to recognize and cultivate that nature. His exhibit is titled Evolution. Brough grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. His father, a structural engineer, introduced him to the visual arts. A pinhole camera built from cardboard exposed him to film at age nine, and Brough bought his first real camera, a 35mm Pentax, to document his wartime U.S. Air Force journey through Southeast Asia and Vietnam, 1966 through 1969. Becoming an orchid grower rekindled his passion for nature and documenting with a camera. Accustomed to producing catalog shots for his orchid business, Brough started looking closer and became fascinated with the varied details of orchids unique reproductive scheme and was amazed to find alien creatures hiding in the flowers. Approaching nature with a sense of humor, Brough is hoping to share his natural wonders through his photography. St. Martin was born and raised in Rhode Island, a professional floral designer for most of her adult life she found her passion for painting later in life. She turned her passion into a thriving business, painting murals and unusual faux techniques from whimsical nurseries to romantic Venetian landscapes for the most discriminating clients. St. Martin has studied with many distinguished artists including Gale Bennett, Greg Biolchini, Parker Harlowe, and JanEllen Atkielski. The exhibit runs through Monday, September 26. For more information on the artists contact: Philip Heubeck at pjheubec@ eagle.fgcu.edu, Sam Brough at jsambrough@gmail.com, and Annie St. Martin at annie@anniesdesigns.net.

29 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 2011 A Dark Comedy Premiere At Theatre Conspiracyby Di SaggauThe opening night packed house experienced a very unique and most enjoyable comedy during Theatre Conspiracys World Premiere production of Elsewhere. Directed by Producing Artistic Director Bill Taylor, the cast took the audience on a hysterical journey involving a young woman who will go to extremes for a little human companionship, a delivery man who is talked into moving in with her and a sister who shows up unexpectedly. Jenny Smith plays Celia, a woman terrified of living alone. It doesnt take long to figure out that Celia marches to a different drummer. She loves to talk and cooking, tons of it, calms her nerves. This is a woman with a very strange mission and Smith plays her to perfection. During a talk back with playwright Adam Szymkowicz, he said the play was written for three specific actor friends. I cant imagine anyone doing a better job in the role of Celia than Smith. Learning all the dialogue is a challenge in itself and her delivery of the many lines is truly amazing. She told the audience that having five brothers and two sisters made it easy for her to relate to sibling rivalry. Jordan Wilson plays Teddy, the delivery man who wants to be a painter. He pursues his dream after moving in with Celia, but he needs a muse to spur him forward. Along comes Amanda, played by Denise Scott. She is Celias older sister, the one who used to bury all Celias toys in the backyard. Wilson, with his wonderful facial expressions and timing, breathes life into his rather laidback character. Scott also does a commendable job as the sister who threatens Celias romantic inclinations. It seems that Amanda, in the past, managed to snag just about every boyfriend who ever entered Celias life. Strange thing is they all mysteriously disappeared. The dialogue in this play is clever. At one point Celia leaves the room sayin, Im just going to practice playing the tambourine in case it becomes necessary. Thats Celia for you. She talks for the sake of talking and the result is very funny. Whenever she makes a demand of Teddy, and he doesnt quite agree, she says, Think about it. Teddy does a lot of thinking. Elsewhere plays with no intermission and a lot of quick scene changes. Theres a brief moonlight musical segment and a couple of bedroom scenes that add to the fun. If you like absurdly funny comedy with a few surprises along the way, I suggest you make plans to see this show. I found it thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. Elsewhere plays through August 27 at the Foulds Theatre at the Alliance for the Arts, 10091 McGregor Boulevard, Fort Myers. For tickets call 936-3239.

31 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 2011 Book ReviewA World On Fireby Max FriedersdorfTwelve years in preparation, Amanda Foremans sweeping epic, A World On Fire, Britains Crucial Role In The Civil War, is being favorably compared to War And Peace and Gone With The Wind. The accolades for the 958-page book are well deserved by the Oxfordeducated historian who won Britains coveted Whitbread Prize for Georgiana: Duchess Of Devonshire, which was adapted for the screen as The Duchess. British involvement in the Civil War was inevitable, Foreman explains, because of its dependence on Southern cotton, while the Confederacy depended entirely on England for guns, ammunition and ship-building. While the Union tottered on the brink of war with England for four years, the South courted formal recognition for the Confederate States of America from the British and other European powers that would force the North to let the new nation go its own way. Between 1861 and 1865, thousands of British citizens volunteered for service on both sides of the Civil War. From the first cannon blasts on Fort Sumter to Lees surrender at Appomattox, they served as officers and infantrymen, sailors and nurses, blockade runners and spies. Three days of horrific fighting in July, 1863, at the small town of Gettysburg, Pennslvania, ultimately settled the issue of Southern independence. The invasion of Pennsylvania by Robert E. Lees elite Army of Northern Virginia represented the high water mark of the Confederacy as British politicians appeared to be on the brink of Southern recognition in the event of another battlefield victory by the apparently invincible Lee and his army. The battle of Gettysburg resulted in a crushing Confederate defeat, and for the past 150 years, historians have been playing the blame game. Victory has a thousand fathers, defeat is a lonely orphan, an adage as old as war itself, certainly applies to Gettysburg where even the Confederate generals themselves could not agree on why they lost. Historian Robert P. Broadwater has authored a marvelous new book entitled, Gettysburg As The Generals Remembered It, Postwar Perspectives Of Ten Commanders, a superb collection of reminiscences of the leading generals at Gettysburg. Their views and opinions are then weighed against the historical record of the battle. General James Longstreet, known affectionately as Lees old war horse, and also a corps commander at Gettysburg, absorbs the most blame for the Southern defeat from his comrades for a tardy attack on the second day, allowing the Federals to strengthen Little Round Top to impregnability. The other Southern corps commander at Gettysburg, Robert Ewell, is also lambasted for not seizing the heights south of town the first day, July 1, after routing the Union troops through downtown Gettysburg. Lee told him to charge the hills, if practible, and Ewell chose not to follow up his victory. All of these generals stood at the sides of Meade and Lee during the battle that decided forever the future of the United States. It is fascinating reading. Both books, A World On Fire and Gettysburg As The Generals Remembered It, are available on the new books shelf at the Sanibel Public Library which has assembled a marvelous collection of new Civil War sequicentennial books.

BORN THIS WEEK: Although you appear to be strongly opinionated, you can also be open to other ideas -so long as they are presented with logic and clarity. On Aug. 23, 1814, during the war of 1812, first lady Dolley Madison abandoned the couples personal belongings to save the full-length portrait of former president George Washington from desecration by vengeful British soldiers. The next night, British troops burned the White House. On Aug. 24, 1875, Captain Matthew Webb of Great Britain becomes the first man to successfully swim the English Channel without assistance. Webb reached shore in 21 hours and 45 minutes. In 1883, Webb attempted to swim the Niagara River, and drowned in 10 minutes. His body was found four days later. On Aug. 28, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson is picketed by woman suffragists in front of the White House, who demand that he support an amendment to the Constitution that would guarantee women the right to vote. Wilson had a history of lukewarm support for womens suffrage even, though he was a former teacher at a womens college and the father of two daughters. On Aug. 26, 1939, television station W2XBS in New York City broadcasts a doubleheader between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Cincinnati Reds from Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. It was the first Major League Baseball game ever aired on television. On Aug. 25, 1944, after more than four years of Nazi occupation, Paris is liberated by the French 2nd Armored Division and the U.S. 4th Infantry Division. German General Dietrich von Choltitz defied an order by Adolf Hitler to blow up Paris landmarks and burn the city to the ground before its liberation. On Aug. 27, 1967, Brian Epstein, manager of the Beatles, is found dead of an accidental drug overdose in his Sussex, England, home. The world might never have heard of the Beatles were it not for Epstein. Just a few months after being hired he got them their first recording contract with Parlophone Records. On Aug. 29, 1982, Swedish-born actress and three-time Academy Award winner Ingrid Bergman dies of cancer in London on her 67th birthday. Bergman was best known for her role as Ilsa Lund in Casablanca. It was American ventriloquist and comedian Willie Tyler who made the following sage observation: The reason lightning doesnt strike twice in the same place is that the same place isnt there the second time. Even flight attendants have their own patron saint, as declared by Pope Paul XXIII in 1962: Saint Bona of Pisa.

33 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 2011 Gutenberg in the 1450s, is the first example of a printed book, but thats not true; its the first book printed using movable type. The oldest known printed book is actually the Diamond Sutra, which was printed in China more than 550 years before the Gutenberg Bible. In many Middle Eastern cultures, it is traditional to celebrate a wedding with five events. The first is the engagement party, during which the bride-to-be changes clothes several times. When the bride and groom sign the marriage contract there is another party, again with numerous changes of clothing by the bride. The day before the wedding there is a henna party, during which the bride and others are painted with elaborate designs that are thought to ward off evil spirits. The reception takes place after the wedding, and guests are often given five almond pieces, each piece symbolizing one of the sacred wedding wishes: health, happiness, wealth, longevity and fertility. Seven days after the wedding is the final celebratory event, known as sabaa, which is for women only and is analogous to the wedding shower we have in the West. The town of North Pole, Alaska, is actually 1,700 miles south of the planets geographical North Pole. The nice thing about egotists is that they dont talk about other people. -Lucille S. Harper THOUGHT FOR THE DAY Poetic Voicesselected by Don BrownI Dont Write Nature Poemsby Sidney B. SimonBut, but, there I was, trapped in front of the bird feeder, a three tuber wildbird seeds, big sunflower blackies, and those little Nyger seeds the Gold Finches love. You get variety up there in that feeder. Even the Mourning Doves crowd in, trembling, vulnerable, watching, on guard. The militant Grosbeaks push them off. And a squirrel is working the ground. Eyeing the feeder, trying to figure out how to jump down off the roof on it. Ive seen him try, and he will not win. Not on my territory at least. A Cardinal shows up, next to the golden whatever it is. Looks like the colors on my high school football jersey. And a Titmouse raises its crown, I wasted the whole morning. Only had enough time for these few lines before lunch call, and the retreat into reading Sharon Olds. She doesnt write nature poems either. Sidney B. Simon is Professor Emeritus, The University of Massachusetts. He is the author of a dozen books, mostly on values clarification and a happy member of Island Writers Group 4. His 13th book, Living And Loving In That Condo with a View of the Gulf, contains poems about people growing old in a mythical condo on a mythical island. Top Ten Books On The Island1.

35 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 2011PGA TipsWhy Should You Play Golf?by Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalThe peacefulness of a golf course Where else can you go and enjoy all the things in nature a golf course can offer? Wildlife such as alligators, bald eagles, osprey, tropical birds of all species, ducks, etc. Nothing soothes the sprit more than being outdoors. Golf builds character You will learn more about yourself and others on a golf course than you will at any other place or time. Handling adversity shows you life lessons that are invaluable. Golf is a game of a lifetime You can play golf much later into life than any other sport. Football players, baseball players, athletes of all kinds turn to golf when their playing careers are over. Arnold Palmer just turned 80 years old and can still shoot around par most of the time. I dont know of any 80-year-old nose tackles who can still play football. Golf can be social or individual I love to play golf with my friends, but have to admit a late afternoon on the practice tee with a bucket of balls by myself is more therapeutic to the soul than anything. Competition This one is why I love golf most. I compete against the golf course, old man par, myself and my buddies. If you doubt it, what did it feel like the first time you made a birdie, beat your dad or won a few bucks off that loudmouth at the office? Integrity No referees, no umpire, just you and your conscience. Exercise America is the fattest country in the world. Walking 18 holes carrying your own bag burns more calories than jogging three miles. FGCU Hosts 5K Fun RunThe Kleist Health Education Center at Florida Gulf Coast University invites the public to a 5K Fun Walk/Run event from 8 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday, September 17 on campus to help raise funds for future programming and transportation for school students in the Southwest Florida community.

What a difference these 15 months have had in the life of this youngster who has played a major role in the White Sox surge to within four games of first place in the American League Central Division early this week. The 6-foot, 6-inch southpaw was the first round (13th overall) draft pick by the White Sox a year ago, signing for a modest $1.65 million, low for a first-round selection. Although Sale was considered among the top left-handers in college baseball, his talent was questioned by some because he pitched for a second-tier school. However, after just two short stints in minor league baseball, Sale was called up by the White Sox within two months. And he has been a stalwart in the White Sox bullpen since. The 22-year-old has appeared in 45 games for the White Sox this season, pitching 54-2/3 innings compiling a 2-1 record and holding hitters to a .209 batting average. His combined ERA in the two seasons in the majors is a sparkling 2.42. As the week began, Sale had made nine straight scoreless appearances, including a perfect ninth-inning save, his fourth of the season, against the Kansas City Royals last Saturday. The media questioned both Sale and his manager Ozzie Guillen whether he was being overworked considering this is his first full season in the majors. I feel great, he said, adding that he is taking care of himself and getting help from the team fitness coach. And Guillen defended his heavy use of the youngster saying, We never overuse him. In the 2010 college baseball season, Sale pitched 102 innings for FGCU and then added 21 games and 23/ innings when called to the majors by the White Sox. Sale possesses a nasty curve ball, change-up and fastball and unquestionably has a great future in baseball that will add millions to his signing bonus in the years ahead. It has been a fast and amazing run to baseball stardom for this Lakeland native who was pitching for FGCU little more than a year ago. Pitcher Cole Nelson Assigned to Miracle in Detroit Trade With just three weeks remaining in the Fort Myers Miracle 2011 baseball season, left-hander Cole Nelson was assigned to the team in a trade by the Minnesota Twins that sent outfielder Delmon Young to the Detroit Tigers. The 6-foot, 7-inch Nelson, out of Auburn University, was a 10th round selection by the Tigers in the 2010 major league draft and had made 26 appearances this season for Lakeland in the Florida State League where he posted a 5-11 mark with a 4.87 ERA. The Miracle began the week with a second-half season record of 19-30 and essentially out of the post-season playoff picture. They were swept at home last weekend by the Palm Beach Cardinals and are on the road this week at Jupiter and Charlotte. Fort Myers returns to Hammond Stadium Tuesday for four games against St. Lucie which begins with completion of a July 1 suspended game followed by a regular contest. Of the 20 remaining games, nine are at home and 11 on the road. Proof Positive that Baseballs Drug Testing Program is Working If there were any doubts that baseballs drug testing program is working, just look at these facts: At the half-way mark of the current season, run scoring was at a 19-year low and the combined batting average of both leagues had fallen to the 1985 average of .253. Just since the 2000 season, runs per game were down 20 per cent and home runs plunged 31 per cent. Finally, just take a glance at the physiques of todays players and they appear as they did in the 1060s and 1970s. No longer do you see the bulked-up bodies of McGwire, Canseco, Sosa and Bonds.

37 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 2011 Around The Islands With AnneSanibel Health Club Is For Visitors As Well As Residentsby Anne MitchellSanibel Health Club owners Tim Shevlin and Jenna Hoyt live their work. They are dedicated to health and fitness in their own lives and they like to share their passion and techniques with others. Their all-purpose gym on Rabbit Road, Sanibel, serves residents of Sanibel and Captiva, island workers who live on the mainland, and visitors from out-of-state or abroad. Hoyt and Shevlin have been in the fitness industry for a combined 16 years and have spent that time learning and creating new techniques to maximize their clients results. She is a competitor in the National Physique Committee while he is an amateur bodybuilder and fitness enthusiast. They offer classes and fitness camps as well as personal training. Shevlin believes performing heavy, compound exercises with free weights should be paramount in most peoples training. Combining that with lighter core intensive exercises utilizing bands is the perfect combination for a total package physique, he says. The reason I believe this style of training is necessary is two-fold: Lifting heavy puts more strain on your body than you are used to in everyday life, your body responds by releasing more growth hormone (men and women) and testosterone (men only), which keeps you looking younger, decreases your fat storage and increases your lean muscle mass. Second and most important is the speed at which you will see results. If you are training for a triathlon, wanting to increase your drive 40 yards on the golf course, look better in your bikini or compete in a bodybuilding show, you need to increase your lean muscle mass in a way that specifically fits your needs. The health club has a 2,500-square-foot cardio theater which contains treadmills, bikes, ellipticals, Stairmasters, and a large stretching area with bands and stability balls. There is also an 1,800-square-foot aerobics studio and a shake bar. Day and week passes are available and well as annual and bi-annual memberships. Sanibel Health Club can be reached at 395-2639.

The deep green forests and soaring mountaintops of Europe hold an interesting history of importing and flaunting precious gems. There are some sources of semi-precious stones throughout Europe, but the early eastern trading routes established by the Roman Empire, and later through the ports of Venice, opened the floodgates for the import of diamonds, lapis, amethysts, emeralds and more. The first stones were imported in the 4th century, the time of Alexander the Great. Active trading of gems for uses beyond medicinal would not occur for hundreds of years. In 1220, an act of Louis IX of France established a sumptuary law reserving diamonds for only the king bespeaks the rarity of diamonds and the value conferred on them at that time. Within 100 years diamonds appeared in royal jewelry of both men and women, then among the greater European aristocracy, with the wealthy merchant class unable to wear the occasional diamond until the 17th century. The earliest diamond-cutting industry is believed to have been in Venice, a trade capital, starting sometime after 1330. Diamond cutting may have arrived in Paris by the late 14th century; for Bruges on the diamond trade route there is documentation for the technique in 1465. From about 1400 European traders began to appear in Myanmar. Their primary aim at the time was to engage in the spice trade. Spices were a commodity much in demand in Europe, because they served as a food preservative. But early travelers reported the profusion and quality of rubies and other gemstones worn by Myanmar Royalty, and this aroused the interest of the West. In 1499, the explorer Vasco de Gama found a sea route around South Africas Cape of Good Hope. This increased the amount of quality diamonds entering Europe from India. Soon the cities of Bruges, Antwerp and Amsterdam joined Venice as bustling diamond trade centers. These cities fed the growing appetite of European royalty for polished gems. In 1631 Jean-Baptiste Travernier, a French jeweler and traveler, visited mines in India and documented the Indian mining techniques. He also took several diamonds back to France and was thus the first European trader who bought and sold gems and opened the diamond trade between India and Europe.continued on page 42 George & Wendys Corner Grill features keyboard duo Chris and James on Friday and Steve ScooterReynolds on Saturday, from 7 to 11 p.m. The Corner Grill is at Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road, Sanibel, phone 3951263.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 201140 Did you know that if you get married (or remarried) and then die without ever changing your will to include your new spouse, that he or she is entitled to as much as half of your estate? This is true whether or not you intend to leave your new spouse anything at all. Moreover, your spouse is entitled to and receives a life estate in your Florida primary residence regardless as to whether you intend for him or her to have a life estate. Florida law presumes several things and then changes your will for you if you dont ever get around to it. As I mentioned above, lets say you did your will a few years back. The will leaves everything to your children as your prior spouse has predeceased you. Then you meet someone that you would like to share the rest of your life with. You talk about your financial future together and decide that whats yours will go to your kids when you die and whats hers will go to her kids when she dies. But you never had a nuptial agreement prepared before you got remarried (or even after) that reduces those promises to writing. Then you die. Florida law calls your spouse a pretermitted spouse. What this means is that Florida law (like many other state laws) presumes that if you had only gotten around to changing your will after you got married you would surely have included your spouse as a beneficiary. The law further allocates an intestate share to your spouse which translates to half of your estate plus a life estate in your primary residence. This presumption can be rebutted if you add a codicil to your will that states you do not intend to give your spouse anything (but read further to find out what problems this creates) or if there is a valid nuptial agreement in place where the spouse waives his or her rights to any share of the estate. So lets talk about giving your spouse a nominal gift in the will. Will this cut off all of your spouses rights to your estate? Hardly. Because Florida law also imposes a minimum amount that you need to give your spouse absent any agreement between you and your spouse otherwise. That minimum amount is 30 percent of the value of your estate at the time of your death. Going back to my example, lets say that you and your spouse have agreed not to take anything from each others estate. What yours is yours for your children and whats hers is hers for her children. You also amend your will to reflect this understanding: I intentionally do not leave any amounts or bequests to my beloved spouse Jane, not for a lack of love but due to the fact that we both have agreed to leave our respective estates to our own families and not to each other. Like Lee Corso on ESPNs College Football Gameday show, Florida law says Not so fast hombre! Absent a validly written nuptial agreement, your spouse still gets a life estate in your primary Florida residence plus 30 percent of the value of your estate, including assets held in a revocable living trust. Which assets and how is that 30 percent calculated, you might ask? Thats very complicated under the law which is quite detailed on the matter and is beyond the scope of the room I have in this column. You should know that if you leave a marital trust that gives your spouse income for the rest of his or her life but then reverts to your children, then 30 percent of your estate in the marital trust is probably insufficient to cover what the law demands. The law treats assets in trust differently than amounts that you leave outright to your spouse. Again, these are topics that you need to address with competent counsel before deciding what is best. The bottom line? If you and your spouse have agreed not to be beneficiaries of one anothers estate or if you have agreed to something that is less than what Florida law would have provided then you really should codify that agreement in a nuptial agreement. To do otherwise flirts with an unintended change to your wishes. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Insurance Tip Citizens Proposes Rate Increaseby Marge MeekA public hearing will be held September 13 in Tampa by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation office regarding the proposed rate increases for coastal communities. This will include homeowners, condominiums, secondary home and rental properties. The proposed statewide average rate increase for homeowners in coastal communities is 12 percent for Citizens 400,000 wind-only policies and for homeowners policies the increase is 25 percent. Renters would see about a four percent increase and condominium unit owners would see an average nine percent increase. This includes sinkhole coverage that has triple-digit rate increases proposed. Since sinkhole coverage is not a mandatory coverage, many customers will reject the coverage and, thankfully, our islands are not prone to sinkholes. State law states that insurance hikes can be no more than 10 percent annually, but since that doesnt cover surcharges, assessments and associated policy changes, like sinkholes, Citizens is within its rights to ask for these higher increases. You can send your comments on Citizens rate filings to RateHearings@ floir.com or visit the Office of Insurance Regulations website at www.floir.com and click on the box that reads Click here to share comments about Citizens Property Insurance Rates. Be sure to include Citizens in the subject line of the email. Marge Meek is a local SanibelCaptiva insurance agent, who can be reached at mmeek@rosierinsurance. com.

41 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 19, 2011School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, As we begin a new school year, I would like to discuss resiliency with you and how to work with your children to help them become resilient individuals. Resiliency research teaches us to understand the factors that help children develop into mentally healthy adults, even if growing up in disadvantaged circumstances. All children have the same needs for care, competence, selfesteem, autonomy, and the other components of resiliency. Promoting Resiliency in Your Child Resiliency is essential to success. Resiliency gives us the ability to deal with lifes challenges and adapt to new or difficult circumstances in a positive, productive manner. There are a number of ways that adults can help children become more resilient. Be loving and supportive. Feeling cared for and safe builds resiliency in children. Foster positive attitudes. Help children believe that they can succeed if they try. Frame failure as a learning opportunity. Teach them to re-evaluate and adjust strategies that may not be working. Nurture positive emotions. Demonstrate and give children the chance to practice positive emotions such as optimism, respect, forgiveness, and empathy. Praise them for successes and avoid judgmental or harsh criticism for failure. Reinforce emotional intelligence. Listen to and validate childrens feelings. Label emotions in words they can understand. Teach appropriate ways to express positive and negative emotions and how to problem solve and deal with upsetting experiences. Develop their competence. Feelings of competence come from success in school and other activities. Ensure regular attendance and homework completion. Help them develop a menu of homework and study strategies. Encourage them to develop talents in activities they enjoy. Teach them to set realistic goals and obtain necessary resources. Promote positive social connections. Children need a variety of friends, relatives and adults with whom they feel connected. Different people meet different needs and having a social network helps children feel supported and learn to develop and maintain healthy relationships. Provide consistent clear expectations. Set, explain, and enforce rules and expected behaviors consistently and fairly. Encourage helping others. Social competence and resilience are fostered by helping others at home, in school, and in the community. Teach peace-building skills. Learning how to be appropriately assertive without being aggressive, standing up to bullies, and avoiding violent games and entertainment fosters resilience. Ensure healthy habits. Good physical health prepares the body and mind to be more resilient. Help children get good nutrition, adequate sleep, and exercise. Reduce stress. Controlling stress encourages resiliency. Practice positive stress control strategies such as meditation, controlled breathing, yoga, exercise, developing talents, and other relaxation responses.

Sanibel Island Light Up Your Life At Homeby Marcia FeeneyWith a little thought and planning, the lighting in the activity areas of your home can be made more efficient and attractive. But the right choice of fixture, the proper lamp (and bulb), placement, and height all have major effects on the results. When it all comes together, beauty, comfort and convenience can be added to every area of your home. Four basic types of lighting are often used together to provide desired functionality and flexibility. Ambient lighting illuminates the entire room and should create a warm and inviting look. It should be relatively low level to avoid glare and dreariness. The amount needed is also affected by natural light sources, wall/floor/ceiling colors, and ceiling light. Task or focal lighting is for reading, cooking, desk work, etc. and should be cooler in tone. It should be carefully placed to avoid shadows or glare to minimize eye strain. Accent lighting illuminates and highlights architectural features or objects in a room. Decorative lighting attracts attention to itself as an object. Examples are chandeliers or sconces. Decorative shades can make any lamp a decorative piece, as well. Just as with furniture or window treatments, I always start with the function or purpose of a particular lighting need when working with clients. From there, the type of lighting is usually obvious, although there may be choices or a combination required. With the excep tion of chandeliers, most residential lighting requirements are met best with lamps rather than recessed or ceilingmounted fixtures. Wonderful lamps are available today for any location or purpose: wall sconces, table lamps, accent lamps, floor lamps, desk lamps, and torchieres of every size and material add variety and interest to any dcor. Size counts, and so does placement. Chandeliers, for example, should not be much wider than half the width of a dining table, and hung so that the bottom is about 30 to 32 inches above the table top. Chandeliers for a foyer or staircase are a bit trickier, as they must be threedimensionally proportional to look right when hung. There are many choices for task lighting, and your selection should depend upon some basic ergonomic considerations, i.e. where will the task at hand be held? From where will the task be seen? Is glare a consideration? Lighting for a dresser or makeup table needs to light the face or head without causing shadows or glaring into the eyes, color and intensity being particularly important for makeup application. Lighting for reading and many hand tasks should usually come from above and behind the user. An astute buyer also considers the type, size, and color of light bulbs for the lamps, as well especially important if the bulb will be easily seen. And dont forget that halogen and quartz filament tubes generate intense heat and must always be shielded and kept well away from flammable materials. Finally, use accent lighting to highlight the wonderful, special features of any room and to create the mood for entertaining and enjoyment in both daytime and night. Small halogen lamps can spark up any art, houseplant, or accessory, and can often add significantly to the overall ambient light, as well as the dcor of your home. The choices available today are truly awesome and sometimes a bit mind-boggling. Give it some thought and youll reap the rewards of a successful lighting scheme in every room!

Since it occurs in areas which were mined for other gems from an early period, it seems likely that individual stones were known earlier but misidentified. During the same time period, the price of a diamond in Europe was $40 for a one-karat gem. This was just before the discovery of the mines in Brazil. As you can see, Europe has acted as a central trading ground for much of the worlds precious gems. You can contact Dan Schuyler by e-mail at dschuyler@lilyjewelers.com.

A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I dont have the time to be friendly with my neighbors. But the other day I was out gardening when a neighbor out walking her dog stopped to chat. She and her husband and his 13-year-old daughter moved into our neighborhood a year ago. This is a second marriage for both and she is miserable. He is now diabetic, has high blood pressure, is obese and is a miserable, abusive man. She said she entered into this marriage because she was lonely, never had any children and loved his three-year-old daughter. She became his daughters mother as her natural mother had died one month after delivery a suicide from post-delivery depression. She doesnt want to leave this darling child, but she is having a terrible time and she does not know what to do. I am old enough to be her mother and know that I lack the skills to give her the proper guidance. Could you help me to help her? Barbara Dear Barbara, I continue to be struck by individuals public faces versus private faces. I am firmly convinced that not all is what it seems and there is always more to the picture than what meets the eye. I do feel sorry for your neighbor. Listening to her issues does lend understanding to why second marriages are so very difficult or even marriages first, second or third that are entered into with unrealistic expectations. Counseling would be a good option for your neighbor, a professional who could assist her to sort out all of her issues and concerns. Pryce Dear Barbara, Many people young and old think marriage will solve their personal problems. While marriage may relieve some personal problems it can also set up a new set of problems. Her second husband seems like a very sick man and probably cant think beyond his own health problems to even realize or talk about her problems. She must decide for herself what is most important for her own happiness and going to a professional marriage counselor may help her come to the correct decision. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com. Two New Hospital Leaders NamedLee Memorial Health System has announced the addition of two new leaders to its administrative team.

Can you recommend something to help? LE, Seattle, Washington Please make every effort to find out whats causing that cough and see your pediatrician. Likely triggers include pet dander, pollen, mildew spores, perfumes or scented products, and even chemicals used in crafts. And be sure to ask your child what she thinks makes her cough. Heres a good story. A friend of mine had a persistent cough that developed every winter when she was a child. She kept telling her parents that she was coughing because it felt like she had hair in her throat. That was back in the days when every other child in America, it seemed, had a tonsillectomy. Predictably, her pediatrician recommended a tonsillectomy. To make a long story short, my friend had her tonsils removed. And it didnt make a bit of difference. She kept on coughing, year after year, every winter. As an adult, my friend had a light bulb go off inside her head. That cough really was from hair, or rather fur. Her mother used to cover her against the cold with a squirrel coat. She went to sleep every night with her face buried in the folds of that old fur coat that old shedding fur coat. If her parents had only listened to her about the hair, she might have been spared the surgeons scalpel. I dont suggest using over-the-counter cough remedies for your child although cough drops are okay. That may sound like an odd recommendation coming from a pharmacist. But medical researchers have shown that most of the time they dont work well on children, plus they can have some serious side effects. For example, in a 2007 study at the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine groups of children with upper respiratory tract infections received either remedies containing the cough suppressant dextromethorphan or a spoonful of honey or no treatment at all before going to bed. Researchers had parents report on both coughing and whether the child got a good nights sleep. Guess which remedy won the day? That oldfashioned, tried-and-true remedya teaspoon of honey. Heres what the researchers said: Parents rated honey most favorably for symptomatic relief of their childs nocturnal cough and sleep difficulty due to upper respiratory tract infection. You should never give honey to children under the age of one or two, theres even debate on that. It may trigger allergic reactions in very young children and has been associated with various toxins, depending on the type of honey. However, let me be clear that you should also never give cough suppressant medication to young children either, unless recommended by a pediatrician because it can slow breathing. DID YOU KNOW: Researchers just found that GABA receptors in the retinal cells stopped functioning properly when vitamin C was deficient, so taking vitamin C may help preserve vision.

All I hear is that the men like the younger women so I feel like my chances are slim. Should I give up?A: Companionship and love has nothing to do with age. Aging is an activity of the mind, not attitude. If you project that you are a wonderful woman worthy of a great man in your world regardless of your age, then you will attract that. Accept yourself for who you are and be willing to receive love in return. Many of us buy into the things we hear and it is absolutely unnecessary to do that. Chances are that you would not want the person who is attracted to younger women anyway. We have to stop listening to the good opinion of others and believe that we are totally worthy of what it is that we desire. You dont have to wait for love to come to you. Be clear that you are open to love. We all want and need love as long as we are living. It is your right to have this love and to be happy. A technique that is helpful is to write down specifically what you want in a partner and be specific. With that kind of intention, you will be putting it out to the universe and you will attract that. Dont become inpatient, as the universe does not always work on our time frame. Meanwhile, continue to do the activities you enjoy and have fun. Believe that all that you could ever want is within your reach and you will have just that.

Emergency pills just in case I happen upon a heart attack or a stroke, mine included. What is in that packet is a trade secret but I will reveal that of the three emergency pills I carry at all times, one of them is a statin. (To know what the other two are you must either send me $1,349 plus tax or go to www.wisequacks.org.) By now most of you know of statins, commonly referred to in playgrounds as -hydroxy-3 methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase inhibitors. But I will heretofore refer to them as statins, if you dont mind. Should one day you be wheeled into the ER in the throes of the common yet deadly heart attack or stroke, you will be given a statin immediately upon your arrival unless you happen to have been in my hockey rink and I happened to have remembered my wallet. There are those who feel that statins should be in the water. They are just that helpful with dealing with these two very common killers. But not always. As doctors we love to see you get high. We also love to see dense patients as we strive to be dense doctors, some denser than others, eh Sealey? HDL, High Density Lipoprotein, is a good... no its a GREAT cholesterol. It reverses cholesterol transport and gobbles and scavenges up the foamy cholesterol that lurks about your blood system hoping to form plaques that lead to clots that lead to trouble that lead to me opening my wallet and digging through the lint. HDL is the anti-Crisco. Those of you with naturally high levels of HDL (thanks to your genes) are fortunate. LDL. We despise the deadly Low Density Lipoprotein, the bad cholesterol. This is the main target of a statin. This is the anti-Christmas reunion. Those of you with high levels of LDL are unfortunate. While statins can help knock down LDL, they dont do much for HDL. For decades, medicine has searched for a way to help us elevate our HDL. Well... In fact, wouldnt it be great if there was a medication that could elevate HDL and lower LDL all at once! Well... Well, you read it here first folks. Finally there is! Every so often a medication comes along that has the potential to change medicine and our lives for the better.There are some journals that always catch a doctors attention. Anything with the word New England or Lancet on it means serious business. Anything with Teen Tiger on it means serious problems. The December 16, 2010 edition of The New England Journal reported on the results of use of a medication called anacetrapib. It astounded researchers by lowering LDL by 40 percent while raising HDL by a stunning 138 percent! It had a superb safety profile and those in the study on anacetrapib had significantly lower cardiovascular events than the others. A medical event is not a good thing like a Monster Truck event. Medical events include heart attacks, strokes or your canoe flipping over while youre navigating rapids that you were unaware were ahead of you as your buddy, Roy, who sat in the bow, forgot to warn you that the river you were about to canoe was a Class 3 river. But this is so New England Journal-excitable that large international studies are being conducted now. In fact, the only way you can get anacetrapib is if youre chosen for a study. Go take care of your cholesterols. Dont be dense, go get dense. Like the column? Youll LOVE the book the Doctor is In(sane), available at Sanibel Island Bookshop.

Congressman Mack Announces Town Hall Congressman Connie Mack announced that he has opened registration for his town hall meeting to take place on Monday, August 22 at the Harborside Events Center, 1375 Monroe Street, Fort Myers, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Mack voted against the nations short-term debt deal because he said it did little to stop reckless spending and financial irresponsibility. What was passed was a scheme, not a solution to Washingtons spending problem, he argued. With the recent launch of The Mack Penny Plan, aimed at putting the country on a path to greater economic freedom by bringing the federal budget into balance by 2019, Mack believes he has presented a real solution to the real problems Americans are facing. The plan is to eliminate one penny out of every federal dollar spent. The Mack Penny Plan has been recieving local and national media coverage, and presently has the support of more than 50 co-sponsors in the U.S. House; the backing of the Republican Study Committees 103 Members, and five key U.S. senators.

My name is Val and I am a two-year-old female pointer with a liver and white coat. I was very skinny when the officer found me. Im still underweight but should put on some more pounds now that I get fed every day. Im a very energetic dog so I will need daily exercise and would make a good pet for a very active family or individual. I would be an excellent jogging, running, or brisk walking companion. Adoption fee is $25 during Awesome August Adoptions. My name is Smudge and I am a domestic short hair female cat, age two. Im white with a gray smudge on my head. I was very shy when I first arrived at the shelter. I love the volunteers because they know how to make us feel secure when we are scared. My favorite activity is to cuddle in someones lap. Im a calm kitty with a very soft coat and I like to be brushed. The best home for me would be a quiet one. Adoption fee: $10 during Awesome August Adoptions. Cats and kittens can be adopted two for the price of one. For information about this weeks pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Services website at www.LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to the animals ID number. The website updates every hour so you will be able to see if these or any other pets are still available. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
