ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 20114 Shell Museum Cowry Exhibit To Open In SeptemberThe wait for The BaileyMatthews Shell Museums muchanticipated cowry shell exhibit is almost over. The display will be unveiled in early September, with a dedication ceremony 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 also 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. These cowries, donated by legendary actor Raymond Burr, are currently on display at the shell museum Join The Lions For A Pancake BreakfastIts that time again time for everyone to wake up on a Saturday and head over to The Community House, where the Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club will treat you and your friends or family to breakfast.

Since 1954, LARC, Inc. has been dedicated to meeting the needs of people with developmental disabilities and their families. Its mission is to promote and provide opportunities in the community for these Lee County residents and help them achieve an independent, dignified and responsible lifestyle. For more information, visit their website: http://www. larcleecounty.org/ The islanders are warm and generous people that can be counted on to support and encourage the best in their community, said Roger Bradley, executive director at LARC. The Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club has jumped in with both feet to help people with disabilities live a productive and satisfying life. Were all grateful to the islanders! There will be pancakes, bacon, and your choice of beverage. The donation for adults is $5 and children under five are free. Ccarry out will also be available. The Lions Club has been very successful with this event in the past and we are hoping to see everyone in our community turn out to eat some great pancakes and support another great cause, said Tom Hoover, past president of the Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at The Community House next weekend and hope they bring big appetites. The breakfast is sponsored by Baileys General Store, Sun Harvest Citrus, Lily & Co.

Stirn, who began working at the museum in June, was pleased to welcome her son, as well as her other son, Brendan Stirn, and her husband, Mike Stirn. Her brother, Army PFC Paden Sturtevant, and their mother, Susan Love, were Blue Star guests earlier this summer. This is the first time my familys been here and theyre really excited to see the museum, Stirn said. They have a fond love of shells and it was just a great opportunity to get the whole family together. My brother was able to take advantage of the (Blue Star) program and Im really glad its still available through Labor Day for my son and other family members. Its the least we can do to thank our soldiers for putting their lives on the line for our country. Whitfield, who is on a two-week leave from Fort Drum (New York), joked with his brother and took photographs of several displays as he made his way around the exhibits. I think its neat being able to see all the things from around the world, to see what you havent seen before, he said of his museum visit. The big shells, the world record-sized shells are pretty nice to look at. I think its incredible, added Brendan Stirn. I never knew there were so many different species of shells. He applauds the special recognition given to those in military service, especially his little brother. Im really proud of (Dalton) for what hes doing, and all the soldiers, continued on page 19 Shell Museum docent Cam Calvert explains a shell display to Mike Stirn, Brendan Stirn, Dalton Whitfield and Amanda Stirn Shell Museum Assistant Director Amanda Stirn shows her son, Army Specialist Dalton Whitfield, an interactive mollusk exhibit

For the last three to four years, Europeans have stayed away due to factors such as the economy and unfounded fears of oil-marred beaches. What makes Europeans such welcome visitors is that being long-haul travelers they tend to stay longer than domestic tourists. They average five to seven days, says Jeff Shuff, general manager of Tween Waters Inn on Captiva. With Americans, we are lucky if they stay a weekend. Thats why our best seller is our threenight package. This is probably the best summer we have had since 2008, said Shuff, estimating that business is up about 15 percent. He said a weak dollar is also making Florida vacations a good buy for foreign tourists. July occupancy at the Island Inn on Sanibel was 97.1 percent, which is about as good as it gets, and August has been terrific, said General Manager Chris Davison. To date, this months business is up 119 percent year-over-year. Island Inn, owned by dozens of shareholders, had been suffering from outdated management and a private club image. Its now aggressively seeking business and has undertaken a half-million-dollar improvement program. Even though we are far from being out of the woods, people are no longer scared to spend and there is pent-up demand, Davison said. There is good value here on the islands and hotel rates are attractive. Lodging operators have been sweetening the deals with promotions such as $80 in dining credits with a three-night stay at Tween Waters Inn, to mark the inns 80th anniversary. Others, like the Island Inn, put together discount deals with local businesses and attractions in June. Mark Pucher, general manager of Jerrys Food on Sanibel, also reports a really, really good summer. While he didnt have final numbers, Pucher estimates summer business is up about 7 percent. We have seen a lot of Europeans. The oil chased them away last year but they decided to come this year. Pucher says about 85 percent of Jerrys business is from tourists. A lot of them saved and didnt do anything last year so they had extra money to spend. Besides Europeans, summer stalwarts tend to be people within a three-hour drive of Sanibel and Captiva, those living between Orlando and Miami. Billy Kirkland, owner of Billys Bikes, called summer business OK, not the best but not the worst by any means. He added, July was definitely better than last year. Kirkland credits lower gas prices, people feeling a little better about the economy and the good exchange rate for Europeans. Earlier this week, reports of Hurricane Irene forming in the Atlantic spurred calls from people with hotel bookings, but as the storm tracked east, fears eased. Predicting future bookings is a guessing game for hoteliers these days because few people make reservations much in advance. Travelers rely heavily on Internet sites such as TripAdvisor and Hotels.com, Davison said. You will have people booking their reservation from the parking lot on their cell phone, he said. With school back in session, tourism has slowed in late August. As usual, some island businesses have closed or are closing for several weeks to ride out the slowest time of the year, give employees vacation time and do clean-up and maintenance. Among them are Traders Store & Caf, The Island Cow, Why Knot, Over Easy Cafe and the Sanibel Bean. July data is not yet available, but in June, the Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel (Lee County) hosted 334,800 visitors. And while the number was down 18 percent from June 2010, spending increased 7.3 percent to $174.8 million, as Davidson-Peterson Associates reported at the Lee County Tourist Development Councils August meeting. The higher spending appears to be because there was a 20 percent increase in people staying in paid accommodations and fewer staying with friends and family. Not all the data is on the positive side. Some 473,332 passengers traveled through Southwest Florida International Airport in June, a decrease of 0.7 percent compared to June 2010, according to the Lee County Port Authority. However, boding well for future European tourism is the fact that Air Berlin added a fourth weekly nonstop flight between Fort Myers and Dusseldorf, Germany, in late July. The islands beaches attract families in the summer season Chris Davison, general manager, Island Inn

7 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 2011Sanibel-Captiva KiwanisKiwanis Kornersubmitted by Eric PfeiferThis week, Mike Campbell, senior environment specialist from Lee County, spoke to us about the artificial offshore reef system. Among his many duties on the water, diving the reefs is his favorite. Campbells available data shows that reefs were first placed in the local waters starting in the 1960s. Lee County took over the program in the 1980s, but they only receive money for the reef program from grants and donations. Campbell currently maintains 20 artificial reefs with over 100 deployments of structure. The reefs are comprised of concrete vessels, steel vessels, heavy gauge steel, concrete rubble, limestone rubble, rock, or structures specifically designed for reefs. Poseidons Garden is one such example of concrete blocks screwed together in the shape of a pyramid. Pegasus is an example of an old steel tugboat. Apparently, Kiwanians Billy Kirkland and Tom Louwers attempted to donate their own vessels to the reef system. As they tiptoed out of the house to go fishing one morning, they forgot their bagged lunches and tide charts their wives left out for them. Of course, the real interest in the artificial reefs is for fishing purposes. Campbell showed us some underwater footage of Goliath grouper, barracudas, and sharks swimming through the structures. The objectives of the reef program are fishing enhancement, habitat enhancement, scientific study and mitigation purposes. Campbell is currently working on a new website to promote the program and educate everyone about the benefits of the reefs to our ecosystem. In the meantime, however, all information including the coordinates of the reefs can be found on http:// www.lee-county.com/GOV/DEPT/ NATURALRESOURCES/MARINE/ Pages/Artificial_Reefs.aspx. Campbell is also working on a very cool sonar mapping page so anglers can visually see what they caught their anchors on before they cut them loose. If you happen to see the words Billys Too or PITA on this website, please contact your local Kiwanian. Campbell actually located the Philadelphia Steamship which sunk in 1918 with a load of cattle presumably headed for Key West. He also gave us an update on the dreaded red lion fish. This invasive fish was introduced accidentally (we hope) to our waters in the 1980s. It has no natural predators, reproduces every four days, and the female lays up to two million eggs per year. If you can catch one and avoid the venomous spines, they are apparently very good to eat. We think we will stick with spaghetti. Republican Women LunchLee Republican Women will meet Monday, September 12. Social hour begins at 11:15 a.m. with lunch and program to follow. The location is the Hilton Garden Inn-Fort Myers at 12601 University Drive. Admittance is $16.00 all inclusive. For reservations, call 432-9389 or email cindylignelli222@ gmail.com.

He was 83 years old. Vern, as he was known on the islands, was born March 23, 1928 in Baltimore, Maryland, where he grew up. He attended Polytech High School in Baltimore and went on get his bachelor of science at Johns Hopkins University. While at Johns Hopkins he played on the lacrosse team and was a member of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity. Vern served in the United States Navy during WWII on the U.S.S. Orion in the Panama Canal zone. In 1953 Vern married Elizabeth Anne Ormond of Akron, Ohio, and together they went on to have two children. For more than 35 years Vern owned and operated an HVAC company called Frankwich Trane Sales and Service Inc., located in Milford, Connecticut. The family lived nearby in Woodbridge, Connecticut, for more than 30 years. Vern and his wife, Libby, moved to Sanibel in 1996. Once on the island, Vern continued as a tennis player, a lifetime member of the Sanibel Island Fishing Club, a member of the Power Boat Squadron and served on the City of Sanibels Wildlife Committee. Vern and his good friend Indy Gopal Pati worked together on designing the PVC tubes found at the fish pier for safely disposing of fish scraps and old bait. He and Libby were world travelers, spanning the globe from Africa to South America and all places in between. Vern loved, lived and enjoyed life with a passion and he will be missed by all of his many friends and family. Vernon Frankwich is survived by his wife of 58 years, Elizabeth Anne, his daughter Amy Frankwich Jackson (Stephen) of Gardnerville, Nevada, and his son, Douglas M. Frankwich of Chicago, Illinois. He is also survived by two grandchildren, Nicklas (Rachael) Frankwich (U.S. Navy) and Thomas Jackson and one great-grandson, Aiden Frankwich. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions be made in his honor to CROW Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife on Sanibel. A memorial service is planned for late October on Sanibel. OBITUARY

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 201112 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThe best laid plans of mice and men (and women) sometimes get screwed up. Last Friday was one of those days. For some reason or another, our scheduled speaker was unable to make it. Nothing very eventful happened, except it was our club presidents birthday. Our best singers, John Carney, John Pryor, and Don Russell were all up North or on vacation. What troupers we were to sing a full blown chorus of Happy Birthday. We went through our regular meeting rituals but one can only stretch so long and soon it was time for dismissal. So I decided to repeat the column that was written about our speaker the last time she spoke to us. Skin cancer warnings are worth repeating. Florida is called the Sunshine State and Shannen Vixler, ARNP (advanced registered nurse practitioner) from the dermatology practice of Dr. Michael J. Haiken, advises us that too much of a good thing, can be bad for you and that includes sunshine. Sun worshippers that we all might be, we just have to protect ourselves from the damaging ultraviolet rays of that glorious sunshine. Lather up ladies and gentlemen with a #30 sun block and, if sitting at the beach, reapply that sun lotion every hour. Protect yourself from excessive sun exposure. Do you know skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer? Like most cancer, this cancer can be easily cured if treated early enough. Aging brings about changes to not only our bodies but most definitely to the covering of our body, the skin. Vixler suggests we examine our skin for any changes such as moles or discolored growths. Check your whole body and dont forget the scalp area, ears, toes, genital areas and bottom of your feet. A cancerous skin lesion can appear suddenly or develop slowly. Going to the dermatologist should be part of your yearly wellness procedure. A baseline history of your skin condition and follow-up visits will help the doctor discover any irregularities or potential problems that can be treated at the early stage, before its too late. Vixler educated us regarding skin layers and the different types of skin cancer signs and symptoms: basal cell carcinoma usually looks like a raised, smooth, pearly bump on the sun-exposed skin of the head, neck or shoulders. Crusting and bleeding in the center of the tumor frequently develops. It can often be mistaken for a sore that does not heal. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is commonly a red, scaling, thickened patch on sun-exposed skin. Ulceration and bleeding may occur. When SCC is not treated, it may develop into a large mass. Melanomas are brown to black looking lesions. Signs that might show a malignant melanoma includes change in size, shape, color or elevation of a mole. Most skin cancers can be treated by removal of the tumor or radiation therapy. Dont wait; get to the doctor. Remember its better to be safe than sorry. Be proactive, go to see your dermatologist and possibly save your life. Weather permitting, Rotary will meet Friday at 7 a.m. at Beachview Steakhouse & Tavern. If you have any questions regarding Rotary or would like information on the subject of Rotary membership, call 337-1099.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 201114 submitted by Bruce NeillLast week was a radical, radial experience for campers at Sanibel Sea School. It was Sea Star week and we explored the group of animals that belong to the phylum Echinodermata the spiny-skinned animals. Common members of this group are sea stars, sea urchins, sand dollars and sea cucumbers. Echinoderms are fascinating creatures for several reasons. They are the only animal phylum that contains just marine representatives there are no freshwater or terrestrial echinoderms. As adults, they exhibit a body arrangement known as pentaradial symmetry. Their body is typically arranged in five sections radiating from a central hub, much like the spokes of a wheel. This unusual symmetry is only found in the adult life stage; as larvae, they exhibit bilateral symmetry that is typical of most other animals. To help explore the idea of symmetry while working the right side of our brains, we designed and created a mandala. Mandalas, whose origins are found in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, are ornately detailed paintings that exhibit exquisite symmetry. Tibetian Buddhists commonly make mandalas by painting their highly detailed images through laborious placement of different colored sands. The pinnacle of the endeavor is the ceremonial destruction of the image upon its completion. This exercise is to remind us that many of lifes treasures lie in our processes, not in our outcomes. All week long we participated in the creation of a sand mandala based on radial symmetry. We designed it, we planned it, we drew a template, we dyed beach sand with food coloring, and with that sand palate, we created a beautiful, radially-symmetrical mandala three feet in diameter. On Friday afternoon, we reveled in the beauty of our creation, before systematically wiping it clean in an entrancing ceremony and returning the sand to the Gulf of Mexico. Ultimately, we realized that the beauty of our creation was in the labor and the fellowship it engendered; the destruction of our mandala somehow set us free to move on with great memories and a better understanding of symmetry. But of course, this is Sanibel Sea School summer camp we could hardly spend all our time on an art creation. We spent hours snorkeling and seining did you know there are a lot of tiny young seahorses out in San Carlos Bay right now? We picked up litter on the beach; we had an epic canoe paddle, followed by abandon ship drills and a long swim back to our island home. We observed sand dollar movement and behavior they are animals, after all. We surfed on a gentle swell on the east end of Sanibel. Our surf-paddling race was close and hard-won by the Red Rastafarians team. And, we ended it with a soulful celebration of art, symmetry, the ocean and good times with good friends. Not bad for a week at summer camp. What a way to wrap up a summer.

Matt MitchellThings sure were quiet out on the water last week with very few boats out and about. The next six weeks is as slow as it gets around here, even though fishing is as good as it gets. During the winter season things are really busy out on the water and fishing is average at best. It is ironic that during the best, most consistent fishing months of the year, hardly anyone is here to enjoy it and we have it all to ourselves. If you are a year-round resident or one of the lucky few who is down here and fishing right now, you know how good it can be. Snook and redfish have no problem with pending tropical storms, crazy humid heat and bath-like water temperatures. Redfish fishing keeps getting better every week. As we move into September and then October, the redfish action will peak with the larger mature fish schooling up in the sound before they move offshore. If you can schedule your fishing time right now around a good high tide or one over that two-foot or better mark, you are pretty much guaranteed redfish. Add in a little wind pushing the water into the trees and its on. One morning at the end of the week, while working one of my favorite redfish shorelines on a southeast wind, I pulled more than a dozen reds up to 25 inches out of one mangrove spot in about 30 minutes. The redfish were eating cut pinfish skipped up close to the trees. Just about every well-placed cast got hit until the fish turned off or moved on as quickly as they had started. Bouncing around other nearby shorelines, I did pick up a few more reds here and there but never found a spot as hot as my first stop of the day. The first part of the week, I raced up to Redfish Pass first thing in the morning to catch the end of an outgoing tide, hoping to find some good snook action. To my disappointment, the tide had really slowed down and was just about finished so I almost did not even drop a bait to give it a try. But as I was already there, on second thought I decided to at least make one drift. As we slow-drifted the seawall at South Seas Island Resort, I had very low expectations. To my surprise, within 15 minutes we caught three big redfish and a few small gag grouper until the tide completely stopped. One little section just off the seawall held all the reds in about 18 feet of water. After getting one redfish right off the bat and locating the fish on the first drift, I held the boat in the honey hole on the motor, bumping it in and out of gear as there were no other boats around. Small pinfish fished on the bottom caught a 26-, 27and 29-inch redfish. Now thats a good start to the day. After that bite quit we moved to the docks on the north side of the pass. In the clear water you could see large groups of small snook moving up and down the docks and treeline on the southern tip of North Captiva. With no tide moving, we could not get them to eat a bait. After about 20 minutes of throwing baits at them with no action, we headed out to the Buck Key channel to catch some trout and pass some time until the tide started moving back in. Fishing the edges of the shallow grass flats with soft plastic jigs, we kept the rods bent. Most of the trout were on the small side along with some ladyfish in the mix. While jigging we did see a couple of rolling tarpon in the slick calm water but never got close enough to pitch a bait at them. Once the tide started moving back in hard, it was time to move on and fish for snook again. This summertime pattern just never gets old.Capt.

Plant SmartString Lilyby Gerri ReavesString lily (Crinum americanum) is an eye-catching, easy-to-grow native wildflower of the amaryllis family. Another common name, swamp lily, indicates its wild habitat, swamps, marshes, ditches, and wet hammocks. This bulb plant is widespread in Florida. The star-like flowers have six slender arching petals and sepals with prominent purplish stamens arising from the centers. The usually white flowers sometimes have a pinkish tinge. They appear in clusters of two to six atop tall stalks separate from the leaves and can bloom throughout the year in South Florida. The strap-like leathery leaves are about three inches wide and up to five feet long, surrounding the base of the plant in a large rosette. String lily prefers partial shade, but can be planted in full sun. It is tolerant of almost any soil type and will grow in boggy problem areas of the landscape. Tolerance for salt spray makes it a good choice for coastal gardens. Use long-lived and slow-growing string lily as a specimen plant or in a mass planting. It can also be used in a water garden or even as a container plant. New string lilies can be started with seeds, but it will also spread by offset bulbs, which can be divided from the parent plant and relocated. The string lily is pollinated by the sphinx moth. A word of caution: All parts of the plant are poisonous and even the sap can irritate the skin.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 201120 CROW Case Of The Week: Peninsula Cooterby Emilie AlfinoAn adult female Peninsula cooter found by a Cape Coral man arrived at CROW July 18. She was languishing, bleeding, on a service road at Southwest Florida International Airport, suffering from a number of serious wounds from being hit by a car. The man who found and rescued her, a rock-and-roll aficionado, called her Zeppelin while she was in his care. She arrived still bleeding from the top of her shell and from her right front foot, according to Dr. Jess Brugler, who is filling in at CROW since Dr. Ambers departure. She had some shell fractures along the middle of the top of her shell. The most interesting thing is she was missing her foot and that was an old injury. Thats why it was bleeding scar tissue is usually not as strong as the original, Dr. Jess said. So here she has been living out in the wild with basically only three legs and seemingly doing great until she decided to cross in the middle of the road. A turtle missing a limb is usually able to adapt pretty well. They use their back legs for steering, diving, and digging their nests; the front legs are basically for helping them propel themselves, according to Dr. Jess. This turtle did have a stump, making it a bit easier for her than if she had lost her whole leg. She probably lost her foot when it got tangled in some fishing line or something, or maybe something bit it off, said Dr. Jess. The vets best guess, though, was it was a fishing line that took off the turtles foot. The turtle also had a lot of bruising and road rash, as one would imagine after being hit by a car on an airport service road. Her shell was all scuffed up, especially on the bottom, Dr. Jess explained. It did seem to indicate she had been clipped by the car and skidded, but I cant really estimate how far. She may have just spun on her belly. The cooter was given pain medication right away. Thats a pretty painful injury for these guys thats bone being broken, said Dr. Jess. Staff cleaned her up with saline solution and applied antibiotic cream and a bandage. Antibiotics were also administered, as Dr. Jess was worried about dirt in the wound because it was a complete fracture. The bandage stayed on for 11 days and the turtle was already healing well enough to go without a bandage and switch to golden yellow salve to cover the wound. She had been soaking in a shallow tub to keep her bandages dry. Now on golden yellow, she could go in the water, and she started going deeper. The funny thing about turtles with shell injuries is they tend to float, Dr. Jess explained. They get kind of an air bubble in there. It takes some time for them to regain the ability to go back underwater. August 9 was a big day for the cooter she started going outside in one of CROWs sea turtle tanks. For three days she continued to float but could steer against the current and get around very well. Just three days later I went out there and she was walking on the bottom of the pool, Dr. Jess said, obviously pleased. Peninsula cooter, CROW patient number 2846, formerly dubbed Zeppelin by her rescuer, was released in one of the ponds in the Bailey Tract, where you can now sometimes hear the faint strains of Stairway to Heaven emanating from the water. She had the best personality, said Dr. Jess. She was a very curious turtle and Im so glad shes back where she belongs.

Last year, Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW), Southwest Floridas only wildlife hospital, cared for 4,111 sick, injured, and orphaned animals. Of the more than 200 different species, 54 percent were birds, 38 percent were mammals, and eight percent were reptiles/amphibians/ invertebrates. Due to restrictions imposed by governmental agencies, CROW cannot allow visitors to view patients in person. But in this 30-minute presentation visitors can see photos of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The CROW Picture Show is presented each Friday at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center at 3883 SanibelCaptiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission for adults is $5, teens, $3, and free for members and children 12 and under.

Lauren wants to be a veterinarian and each year visits CROW to drop off the money she has raised to help sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. Everyone at CROW would like to thank Lauren and express an early Happy 12th Birthday wish for when she returns next year. Lauren is pictured here presenting her donation to the CROW team at the wildlife hospital. She says her goal for next year is $500! Nautical Triviaby Bryan HenryThe word navigation comes from two Latin words, navis, meaning ship, and agree, meaning to direct. William Bligh was captain of the HMS Glatton in 1801 and took part in the Battle of Copenhagen, after which he was commended for his bravery by Admiral Horatio Nelson. During the age of sail, it was considered unlucky to whistle on board ships because it could whistle up a storm. An old rule of thumb for sailing from England to the Caribbean was to sail south till the butter melted, then proceed west. English sailors of the 18th century even the most ruffian wore skirts. Thomas Paine, author of The Rights of Man and Common Sense, was formerly a ship rigger. Cootie was a sailors name for a body louse. It comes from the Polynesian word kutu, meaning parasitic insect. The sails of most European vessels were made of hemp, while those of American vessels were made of cotton. Before the advent of toilet paper, sailors used the frayed end of anchor ropes. Shellabration 2012 will mark the 75th annual Sanibel Shell Fair and Show. Plans are under way for an island-wide celebration February 26 through March 4.

When you sell as much fresh seafood as we do, youre bound to attract a crowd Regular readers of this column know that I am a weekend-warrior triathlete in addition to being a full time estate-planning attorney, husband and father and today I would like to introduce you to a very interesting and inspirational man I met this past weekend while competing in the USA Triathlons National AgeGroup Championships in Burlington, Vermont. Bill Reese, age 74, counters the stereotype that only young people compete in triathlons which are widely thought of as extreme human endurance challenges consisting of an open-water swim (typically in a lake, river or ocean), bike race, and then a run. He didnt pick up the sport until his early 60s, but has qualified for and competed in several national championships as well as world championship races since then, including this years world championship that will take place in Beijing, China. Amateur triathletes are called AgeGroupers because they are segregated by gender and five-year age segments for competition, such as Male Age 70-74. There are only a few people I have to beat in my age group, he smiled modestly, so its not that big of a deal that Im in all of these championships. The top finishers in regional qualifiers are invited to the national championship race. Then the top finishers from the national championship move on to compete in the world championship event. I was a nerd growing up, Reese answered when asked whether hes always been athletic. I played a few sports as a kid but didnt do anything particularly well. Then I worked in the federal government and raised a family. So my pedigree is really nothing special to speak of. He got into triathlons after he watched one in his hometown near Monterey, California and shortly thereafter decided to compete in a sprint distance event that consists of a 500-yard swim, 13-mile bike, and then a 3.1-mile run. I was hooked after that, he says. Reese graduated on to longer triathlons, including this past weekends national championship that was an Olympic distance event (.9-mile swim; 24.8-mile bike; and 6.2-mile run). Hes also competed in half iron-man distance races (1.2-mile swim; 56-mile bike; and 13.1mile run) and full iron-man distance races (2.4-mile swim; 112-mile bike; and 26.2-mile run). His wife Emmy sometimes travels with him, especially to the major competitions held in some of the worlds best vacation spots. She tolerates it okay, he chuckled. And like most triathletes, Reese has suffered through his share of bumps and bruises. I didnt know whether I was going to be able to compete in todays event, he said, lifting his shirt to reveal a very nasty bruise and fresh scars running under the length of his right arm. Bicycling accident from last week when I was training doing hill climbs, he explained, shrugging his shoulders. I was reaching back to get something out of my jersey pocket, wasnt paying attention to what was in front of me, and ran into a parked truck blocking the bike lane. Didnt know whether my arm would be limber enough to do the mile swim with all this bruising and scar tissue, but I did it! When I asked what advice he would give to others of his generation, he simply said, Anyone can do it. You do have to put the time in to get into shape and then to train. After you get past age 65, your VO2 max (volume of oxygen/ time aka your aerobic capacity) falls off a cliff so you just have to deal with it. I walked part of the run course today and still qualified for worlds! Im so glad that I had the opportunity to race in nationals this past weekend and meet people like Bill Reese. If you are interested in watching a triathlon in person, theres a Sprint distance event being held right here on Captiva on Sunday, September 18. Get up early as the race starts at 7 a.m. sharp with a 500-yard swim in the Gulf of Mexico at South Seas Island Resort. A good place to watch the event will be along SanibelCaptiva Road as the triathlons bike route loops from South Seas to Blind Pass and then back. The run portion is through and along South Seas golf course with a beach run finish. I am registered to race, as is one of my law partners, Michael Hill.

In her work, she overlays places she has lived and traveled in landscapes where Yuan Dynasty scrolls seem to meet the Flintstones. Her paintings, collages and drawings combine improvisational pours of paint, sketchbook drawings and digital projections to establish idiosyncratic compositions. Heeding the Tang Dynasty dictum of landscape as a fusion of observation and memory, they interweave external and internal perceptions of particular locations. Working in oil, acrylic and ink, Condon shifts between volume and pattern, treating space like sections of a scroll that are cut out and then overlapped. Condons work has been included in exhibitions at Song Zhuang Museum, Beijing; Shenghua Art Centre, Nanjing; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, North Carolina; Tampa Museum of Art; Fort Lauderdale Museum; and the Housatonic Museum of Art, Bridgeport, Connecticut. In 2009 her work was featured in a survey exhibition at the Albany Museum of Art, Albany, Georgia, for which a catalogue was published. She is the recipient of a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant and a Florida Individual Artist Fellowship. She has been selected for artist residencies Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, New York; Fountainhead, Miami; Red Gate, Beijing, China; and Loft Nota Bene, Cadaques, Spain. Previously artist in residence at the University of Knoxville, Tennessee and the Ringling School of Art, Condon lectures at numerous universities and colleges including Cooper Union School of Art, Boston University, Mount Royal College of Art and Montclair State University. She is associate professor at the University of South Florida and alternates her time between Tampa and Brooklyn, New York.

I would hold in my heart the wonder of this newborn babe before his sweet breath and smile are changed by the real grown-up world and never forget.

Jordan Wilson and Jenny Smith in Elsewhere at Theatre Conspiracy in Fort Myersphotos by Theatre ConspiracyTheatre Conspiracy is staging Elsewhere by Adam Szymkowicz at the Foulds Theatre in Fort Myers on Saturday. This dark comedy follows Teddy, a delivery man and his bizarre adventure, which begins when he delivers a package to Celia, a beautiful recluse. The last thing Teddy expects is to be asked to dinner. When Teddy accepts the invitation to dinner, he doesnt expect to be invited to move in with Celia. When he moves in with Celia, he definitely doesnt expect all that follows including the arrival of Celias sister, Celias potent potatoes, or her adeptness with a shovel. Elsewhere will play August 27 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased by calling Theatre Conspiracys box office at 936-3239 or visiting www. theatreconspiracy.org., Elsewhere took second place in Theatre Conspiracys annual new play contest last year and then was selected as the inaugrual script for the Square One Series (SOS), a new play development program founded by The Bloomington Playwrights Project, Theatre Conspiracy, Chicago Dramatists, Greenbrier Valley Theatre and Exposed Productions in New York. SOS is a cooperative effort of theater companies in the U.S. that work together to develop new plays. Each year one play is selected by the artistic directors of each company. That play is then given readings at two of the theaters, a staged reading at a third, then a full production at the fourth. This inaugral year. Elsewhere will find its way from a production in Fort Myers to the lights of Off-Broadway in October. Im very excited about Square One and honored to be the first playwright chosen, said Szymkowicz. First of all, I get to go to four cities Ive never been to before and make theater there, meet theater people. But also, I get to work on a play with different casts and directors. There are advantages to working with the same people over and over but sometimes it helps to have fresh eyes when youre developing something. Everyone sees your play from their own perspective and brings that to it. That can be helpful when youre trying to decide what works. To be able to be a part of a group like this and have a playwright of Adams caliber involved is exactly the thing Theatre Conspiracy exists for, said Theatre Conspiracys Producing Artistic Director Bill Taylor. Just look at Adams resum and you know he is someone you would love to work with.

Table Tennis Showcase OpensJoin Art of the Olympians (AOTO) on Friday, September 2 for the debut of the Table Tennis Showcase in the Olympic Sport Gallery. The exhibit features unique displays that tell the rich history of table tennis. Visitors can test their skills on two regulation tables. The exhibit has been made possible by the contributions of Marvin and Caron Leff; the International Table Tennis Museum (ITTM) in Switzerland, Bradleys Jewelers, Newgy Industries, Butterfly North America, and Robbins Specialties. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Ping Pong Diplomacy. In 1971, table tennis became more than a sport; it was a tool for peace. On July 8,1971 a tournament took place between players from the Peoples Republic of China and the United States. At the time, the U.S. players were the first Americans to visit China in more than 20 years and their visit helped lay the groundwork for formal diplomatic relations that were established the following year with President Richard Nixons visit. Families, friends and community members are invited to take a look into the world of table tennis on September 2 from 6 to 10 p.m. That evening visitors will have the opportunity to watch an exhibition match featuring former U.S. Open and Florida State Champion Marvin Leff, and get tips on technique and strategy. The evening will also feature a presentation by ITTF Museum Ambassador Caron Leff exploring the rich history of table tennis. Visitors may test their table tennis skills on regulation tables against one of the two Newgy Robo-Pongs, a training robot used to improve a players technique and stroke through timed drills with a donation of $2 a session. Art of the Olympians is hosting a Table Tennis Tournament on Saturday, September 17. For registration details call 332-5055 and plan on attending the opening reception for the exhibit in the Olympian Sport Gallery at the Art of the Olympians Al Oerter Center for Excellence at 1300 Hendry Street, Fort Myers. Admission to the reception is free. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $5; children under 10 are free. The gallery is closed on Sundays, Mondays and holidays. For general museum information, visit www.artoftheolympians.com or call 3325055. To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213

31 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 2011 Tales Of Medical Compassionby Di SaggauSanibel resident John Raffensperger, MD has put together a unique book titled Two Scottish Tales of Medical Compassion. Rab and His Friends and A Doctor of the Old School emphasize the importance of compassion and humanity in the medical field. Dr. John Brown wrote Rab in 1859 when he was 48 years old. Its a story of how Browns teacher and employer, the celebrated Scottish Doctor James Syme, taught and operated. The other main characters are Rab, a ferocious dog, his owner and his ailing wife. The story begins with a fight between Rab and a bull terrier and ends with the faithful sheep dogs funeral. Brown was revered and beloved to uncommon degree, and he was the cherished friend of many of his most distinguished contemporaries. A Doctor of the Old School by Ian Maclaren, the pen name of John Watson, is about a Highland country doctor who devotes his life to caring for others. When the reapers in harvest time saw a figure whirling past in a cloud of dust, or the family at the foot of Glen Urtach, gathered round the fire on a winters night, heard the rattle of a horses hoofs on the road, or the shepherds, out after the sheep, traced a black speck moving across the snow to the upper glen, they knew it was the doctor, and, without being conscious of it, wished him God speed. The short stories set in the fictional Perthshire town of Drumtochty, are inexpressibly moving and beautiful. Readers will discover the gratitude felt by the patients treated by their country doctor. As autumn passed into winter, the Glen noticed that the doctors hair had turned grey, and that his manner had lost all its roughness. A feeling of secret gratitude filled their hearts, and they united in a conspiracy of attention. Annie Mitchell knitted a huge comforter in red and white, which the doctor wore in misery for one whole day, out of respect for Annie, and then hung in his sitting-room as a wall ornament. Raffensperger says the two stories should be required reading for every doctor, reminding us that compassion and kindness are the cornerstones of their professions. Both stories reflect the type of doctor who was trained at the Edinburgh School. According to friends and colleagues they also reflect Raffenspergers personal beliefs on his profession. Raffensperger was a surgeon-in-chief at the Childrens Memorial Hospital in Chicago and a professor of surgery at Northwestern University. Equally compelling in the book is Raffenspergers A Brief History of the Edinburgh School of Medicine. It covers the surgical history of Edinburgh, and not only gives perspective for the two stories and a background of the authors and characters, but also emphasizes how the Edinburgh principles of compassion furthered the science of medicine. There are little nuggets of information in this segment. You will learn who were the models for Sherlock Holmes in Conan Doyles detective novels, and for Long John Silver in Treasure Island. The Edinburgh School of Medicine is considered the most distinguished English-speaking medical center of the 19th century. Established in 1726, it is one of the oldest medical schools in Scotland and the UK. Admission to the school is quite competitive with over 85 percent of UK and EU applicants as well as 92 percent of international applicants being rejected every year. Two Scottish Tales of Medical Compassion with A Brief History of the Edinburgh School of Medicine is a memorable read. The book sells for $10.95 and is available at the Island Book Nook, Palm Ridge Road on Sanibel, and through the publisher cosimobooks.com or amazon.com. 10% OFF 10% OFF ENTIRE BILL ONLY.

But get involved and let your Ovine sense of order help restore domestic tranquility. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines flair for fine-tuning complicated fiscal dealings comes in handy when an unexpected financial problem arises. Stay with it until its resolved to your satisfaction. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family aspects remain strong. There might be some unresolved difficulties, but continued attempts to smooth things over eventually prove to be successful. A major purchase looms. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A promise that was made but never kept suddenly reemerges in your life. You now have to decide if youre still interested in what it offers or if youve moved past it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Romance comes to unattached Leos and Leonas who have been waiting for Cupid to target them for far too long. Domestic purr-fection is also enhanced for paired Felines. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You need to take a much-needed break from that demanding project before too much energydraining tension sets in. And dont be ashamed to ask for help. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Change makes demands that you might find unwelcome at this time. But instead of concentrating on the short run, look toward potential benefits down the road. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You have a gift for reviving projects that seem beyond repair. Use that same ability to restore a relationship that seems to have turned from loving to lifeless. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Expect to be asked to use your combined wisdom and humor to resolve a problem. After all, folks not only value your advice, they also like how you give it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Most people consider you solid and steady. But you also can be quite capricious (which is a Latin word for describing the behavior of Goats) when it suits your needs. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) People treat you as you wish to be treated. So if you want a change in your relationship, make it happen. Also expect someone to reveal some long-held secrets. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Stay with the decision you made, despite a sudden torrent of advice to the contrary from wellmeaning people. Remember: You know your needs better than anyone. BORN THIS WEEK: You like things tidy, with no loose ends. You also enjoy research and would make an excellent investigative reporter or scientist On Sept. 1, 1836, Narcissa Whitman, a missionary, arrives in Walla Walla, Wash., becoming one of the first Anglo women to settle west of the Rocky Mountains. In 1847, a measles epidemic killed many of the Cayuse Indians. In retaliation, a band of Cayuse killed 14 people, including Narcissa and her husband. On Sept. 4, 1886, Geronimo, the wiliest and most dangerous Apache warrior of his time, finally surrenders in Skeleton Canyon, Ariz. Geronimo never learned to use a gun, yet he armed his men with the best modern rifles he could obtain and even used field glasses to aid reconnaissance during his campaigns. On Sept. 2, 1923, aftershocks and outof-control fires rock Tokyo, Japan, and the surrounding area following an 8.3-magnitude earthquake. In total, 143,000 people died in the disaster. The Imperial Hotel, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, sank 2 feet into the ground but still managed to stand. On Sept. 3, 1939, Britain and France declare war on Germany. The first casualty of that declaration was the British ocean liner Athenia, which was sunk that evening by a German submarine. On Aug. 31, 1955, William G. Cobb of the General Motors Corp. demonstrates his 15-inch-long Sunmobile, the worlds first solar-powered automobile. When sunlight hit 12 photoelectric cells made of selenium (a nonmetal substance with conducting properties) built into the Sunmobile, an electric current was produced that in turn powered a tiny motor. On Aug. 30, 1963, a hot line between Moscow and Washington goes into effect to speed communication between the governments of the United States and the Soviet Union and help prevent the possibility of an accidental war. The hot line was never really necessary to prevent war, but it did provide a useful prop for movies about nuclear disaster, such as Fail Safe and Dr. Strangelove. On Aug. 29, 1982, the 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 the 37th president of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, who made the following sage -and somehow appropriate -observation: Sure there are dishonest men in local government. But there are dishonest men in national government too. Pasta has been around since 5,000 B.C., and it was invented in China, not Italy. If you are planning a visit to the United Kingdom, you might want to keep in mind THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE

When complete, the new sanctuary will occupy about 10,899 square feet of the campus and the administration building will be about 3,165 square feet. Youre part of the community of Sanibel a community within a community, said Mayor Kevin Ruane. Any time theres an opportunity to see us progress and work together, its an excellent opportunity. I wish everybody well, and I am looking forward to this expansion in our community. Benchmark will also remodel existing buildings that were originally constructed in 1917 and design a new storm water drainage and retention system for the church. The parking lot and courtyard will be redesigned providing a total of 256 parking spaces. Said Pastor Barb Nave, who has been with the church for 18 years, This is a dream come true for me. I cant wait for the church keys to show up. this rather obscure statute: Its illegal to stand within 100 yards of the reigning monarch if you dont have socks on. A groundhog can move 700 pounds of dirt in a single day. When the two-and-one-half-hour finale of the groundbreaking television show MASH aired on Feb. 28, 1983, advertisers paid a hefty $450,000 for a single 30-second spot. That was $50,000 more than the same spot cost at the Super Bowl that year. We all know what a disaster is, but did you know where the word came from? The base of the word is aster, which is Latin for star. The word disaster originally meant an unfavorable aspect of a star, reflecting the ancient notion that the motions of heavenly bodies affected terrestrial events. Baseball players didnt have numbers on their uniforms until 1929, and it was the New York Yankees that were the first to adopt the practice. In the early 18th century, newspapers were not cheap, but the stories published therein were often peoples only link to the events of the day. Since they were so coveted, newspapers were often brought as a gift when a gentleman was calling on a lady friend, much as candy or flowers might be brought in a different era. No one really listens to anyone else, and if you try it for a while youll see why. -Mignon McLaughlin THOUGHT FOR THE DAY Read us online at IslandSunNews.com Sanibel Community Church Pastor Daryl Donovan told the crowd they were standing on holy ground the location of the churchs future sanctuary Left to right, Olivia Walsh and Rivkah Livermon enjoyed the singing in front of the cooling fan Special shovels were used for the churchs groundbreaking DING DING DARLING DARLING DAYS DAYSSANIBEL & CAPTIVA October 16 October 16THRU October 22 October 22

35 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 2011 PGA TipsHow To Enjoy Golfby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalGolf is one of the most fun things you can do on a beautiful day in Southwest Florida. Spending a day in the sunshine with friends or family, getting some much needed exercise while challenging myself to improve at the game, is why I play golf. Why do you play golf? Score? To win money? I see people every day come to play golf. Most are here for different reasons. Lets identify why you love to play golf and find that happy place more often. If I told you that you were going to spend a bunch of money and your valuable time to be miserable, the line wouldnt be very long. Here are a few tips to enjoy golf: 1. Never set a target score before teeing off. The easiest way to disappoint yourself before you even start is to set an acceptable score for happiness (telling yourself that you have to break 100, 90, 80, etc. to be happy with the round). Every day has different scoring conditions. I have shot 83s in terrible conditions that were better rounds than any of the 70s I have shot. 2. My score does not dictate my mood, however, my mood often dictates my score. Accept the challenge of the game and keep in mind that no matter how good you get you will see where you could have done even better every time you play. This process never ends. 3. None of my friends are my friends because of my golf skill. If I have to shoot 68 for a certain player or group of players to like me, I will settle for my usual 74 and the friends I already have. 4. Laugh at your next bad shot. The only time to be mad if you hit a shot in the water, is if you tried to. You probably didnt try to so accept your failures. No matter how good you get it wont be your last bad shot. Watch golf on TV. Those guys hit it all over the place too. A good recovery shot makes me happier than anything! 5. Give yourself a break. Not many people reading this article play golf for a living. For the amount of time you get to play and the amount of practice you probably do, the chances of beating your buddy who is scratch are pretty small. Play with that person because you like them or like to spend time with them and see if maybe by watching them you can pick something up that can help you. 6. Play a shorter set of tees. It is a lot more fun to have shorter clubs into the greens than longer ones. Find a distance that you can handle and enjoy the game from there. The USGA handicap system gives a way to play a fair game between golfers from any set of tees with any handicap. Again, none of my friends are my friends because I play the back tees. 1149 Periwinkle Way Sanibel, FL 33957 239/472-0176 fax 239/472-0350 www.jnaislandrealestate.comIf you are interested in listing your island property, contact the islands oldest and most prominent real estate company.

Only Jim Thome Should Be In The Hall Of Fame On The First Ballotby Ed FrankWe dont understand the lack of fanfare, the lack of celebration when the Minnesota Twins Jim Thome hit his 600th home run only the eighth player in major league history to do so. In my book, the likeable Thome is a surefire first-round selection for baseballs Hall of Fame. But his 600th dinger earlier this month sure didnt get the media attention that Derek Jeter captured with his 3,000th hit. Maybe its because Jeter toils in the Big Apple for the New York Yankees and Thome, from blue collar Peoria, Illinois, plays for the small market Twins, his fifth team in the last 10 years. But lets take a detailed look at the amazing record of the 41-year-old Thome, now in his 19th major league season: He is eighth on the all-time home run list, and three of the seven ahead of him have either admitted to or have been suspected of using steroids. Never, I repeat never, has Thome been tainted by the steroid scandal. Based on his number of at bats, he reached No. 600 faster than any other player with the exception of Babe Ruth. All-time, Thome ranks 18th in slugging percentage and 27th in RBIs. Thats out of more than 17,000 major league players over the last 100 years. Only 33 players have hit homers against all 30 teams and Thome is one of them. He hit 40 or more home runs in six seasons, scored 100 runs in eight seasons and has driven in at least 102 runs in nine seasons. Combined, these records are higher than those of Lou Brock, Cal Ripkin, Jr., Frank Robinson and Reggie Jackson, all of whom are in the Hall of Fame. Thomes average of one homer every 13.6-at bats is fifth best in history and his slugging percentage is better than Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle, again all Hall of Famers. Statistics aside, those around baseball will tell you that Jim Thome is one of the nicest, most accommodating guys in the game. Hell sign autographs, be patient with often-difficult reporters, and spend hours with young players teaching them the nuances of major league baseball. Perhaps the real Jim Thome was best described in a recent column by Kevin Baxter of McClatchy Newspapers.: The Twins had only one day off the entire month of May and Thome flew home to visit his family. But then he flew right back as that same day the Twins were holding a memorial service for the late Harmon Killebrew and he wanted to be there to participate in the service. In a poll of major league players, Thome was once named the best teammate, earning three times as many votes as the player in second place. Its likely when he hangs up his spikes, the Hall of Fame poll will grant him entry on the first ballot. Miracle Season Nears End Only four home games remain in the 2011 season of the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team. The Miracle began the final two weeks of the season with a 20-33 second-half record and have been eliminated from post-season play. Fort Myers is home this Sunday and Monday at Hammond Stadium against the Charlotte Stonecrabs and the final two home games are September 1 and 2 versus Jupiter. Jim Thome

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 201138 Superior InteriorsCreating Your Personal Retreatby Marcia FeeneyOne of the greatest luxuries we can have, and the most elusive to find, is time for ourselves. Nearly every minute of our lives is programmed with family, business, or social activities. To better handle our multiple responsibilities, we need time each day to retreat to our own private place, where we can restore our tired bodies and souls. Get in the habit of taking time to pamper yourself. Here are some ways to create your own divine personal retreat inside your home. Eliminate Clutter. The first step to decorating a peaceful haven is to eliminate annoying disorder, like stacks of stress-provoking paper clutter. Discard dated material. Important papers should be filed in drawers or individually covered wicker file boxes. Magazines and other reading material can be attractively stored in decorative chests. Your decorator can help you find pretty and practical solutions for keeping your paper collection undercover. Pamper Yourself in Sleep. There is hardly anything more restorative than a good nights sleep, enhanced even more if followed by a leisurely morning in bed. Treat yourself to a glamorous setting that promotes lingering, so every day you can wake slowly to the joys of a new day. Tufted headboards, down comforters, plump pillows and romantic bed ensembles are just a few of the luxuries that can make your mornings more beautiful. Create a Cozy Corner. Losing yourself in the worlds created by novelists is a wonderful way to escape from your daily routine. Prepare a quiet, cozy corner for uninterrupted time to read the latest bestseller or revisit a favorite book. Comfortable seating, proper lighting, and a handy table for books and beverages are essential furnishings. Consider a decorative folding screen for extra protection from outside distractions. Make a Place for Beauty. There are certain routine aspects of life that have a tendency to wear us down. One such activity faced by women is the daily beauty regimen. Imagine how much more appealing the mornings ritual would be if you were sitting on a boudoir chair, before a lovely vanity table, with a large mirror and the appropriate lighting. Reflect in Luxury. Soaking in a tub is a glorious way of unwinding. Create the perfect bathroom grotto ambiance with plants, candles, scented soaps and oils and soft ethereal music. Warm up the tile floor with a lovely chenille rug to match your luxurious bath sheets. The ultimate finishing touch would be a fabulous chandelier on a rheostat for soft night light. continued on page 39 239-489-3311 239-489-3311 239-489-3311 www.furniture-world.net 15631 SAN CARLOS BLVD., FORT MYERS CONVENIENT LOCATION FROM SANIBEL & FT.

39 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 2011Summer Pool Maintenanceby David LiebetrauThe ideal chemical levels for a residential pool are: Free Chlorine: 2-4ppm pH: 7.4-7.6 Hardness (Calcium): 200400ppm Alkalinity: 80-120ppm Stabilizer (Cyanuric Acid): 30-50ppm *ppm = parts per million The hottest months of the year and heavy afternoon rains are here, and they can drastically alter your pools chemistry through evaporation, excessive bather load, high temperatures, and heavy dilution from rainwater. This time of year it is especially important to stay on top of chemical levels, or your pool can go south very quickly. Remember, this is also the perfect recipe for algae growth. It is important to watch for the early stages of algae, and to treat any algae growth as early as possible. The easiest way to check and maintain the ideal chemical levels in your pool is to either purchase a pool test kit, or stop in to a pool supply store for professional water testing and advice. The biggest advantage of testing your water at a pool supply store is that they will be able to help you determine the quantities of chemicals needed, and answer any questions you may have. David Liebetrau is a licensed pool contractor on Sanibel. If you have a question for David, email him at info@ bannerpoolservice.com. From page 38Personal Retreat Soothe the Soul with Music. Every once in a while you need to force your active mid and body to slow down. One of lifes greatest delights is listening to music. Music inspires a range of emotions, but one soothing suggestion is the sounds of Chopin, Debussy, or Pachelbel. Their good-for-the-soul sounds make a soft background for reflecting and meditating. Let Creativity Flourish. If you find peace in recording your life in a journal, pleasure in watercolors, or dream of writing a blockbuster novel, you need a solitary place to pursue these creative endeavors. Have everything at hand when the mood strikes. Whatever your style preference or budget allowance, you can have the perfect creative accessories. Find Time for Peace and Quiet. Finally, to complete your serene setting, shut down the computer, switch the phone to voicemail, and turn off all the bells and buzzers. The absence of extraneous noise will allow you to get the most out of your personal retreat time. Marcia Feeney is an interior decorator on Sanibel.

Lets say that something in your house requires a little TLC. So, you speak to a service provider on the phone or in person about some new part that you need or the state of something in your house. You hang up the phone or walk away from the conversation and then try to relay that message to another person. And bam! The what did they say about that thingy moment happens. Those kinds of moments happen because we are unfamiliar with a particular word. So, naturally, its not always easy to remember what it is. When speaking with your air conditioning service provider you may also encounter some terms you have heard before but arent exactly sure what they mean. So, here are some of the more common ones that will help you avoid the aforementioned moments should you ever come across them: HVAC Stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. This is a broad spectrum class of contractors that deal with most comfort needs. Most comfort contractors deal with these three classifications and refrigeration as well. Some even work on major household appliances. BTU Stands for British thermal unit, and is a measurement of heat. A BTU is the amount of heat that is needed to raise or lower the temperature of one pound of water by one degree. This is how air conditioning and refrigeration is rated, by the use of BTUs or tons. (one ton of cooling equals 12,000 BTU/hour, and most residential air conditioners in this area are between two and four tons or 24,000 and 48,000 BTU). Sensible Heat Heat that when added or removed causes a change in temperature but not in the state. Latent heat Heat that when added or removed causes a change in state but not in temperature. Humidistat This is a device that usually is installed by the thermostat. Its function is to measure the amount of humidity present and instruct the system to act accordingly. Supply This is where the air comes out after being conditioned. Return This is where the air goes back into the system. Air handler This is the piece of equipment that is usually located in the attic. The air handler contains a coil, a blower and some other miscellaneous controls. Condensing unit This is the part that is on the outside of your home, it contains a compressor, a fan, a large coil and some other miscellaneous parts. I hope this helped clear up some questions about a/c terminology. As always, thank you and keep cool! Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor. He also owns, with his brother Todd, an electrical business on Sanibel. He can be reached at Bryan@Sanibelair.com.

41 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 2011 Florida PACE Association For Elderly Launches Website, Toll-Free NumberThe Florida PACE Association has launched an informational website and toll-free number for those interested in learning more about the Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly and PACE providers. The website address is www. FLPACE.org, and the toll-free number is 855-4FL-PACE (855-435-7223). PACE is a long-term, community-based alternative to nursing home care that helps older Floridians remain independent. Those 55 and older who prefer to remain in their homes can receive coordinated medical care and support services through PACE. The program combines health care services, socialization, therapies and meals. The scope of services includes medical specialists, transportation, respite care, prescription medications, home health care, dental care, preventative care, personal care, social services, meals, nutritional counseling, and therapies including physical, occupational and recreational. The Florida PACE Association is a collaborative organization of PACE service providers dedicated to providing healthcare to frail, older adults, according to the associations president, Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope HealthCare Services. PACE programs represent a three-way partnership among the care provider, the state of Florida and the federal government, Beckwith said. Its truly a collaborative program and process that empowers our frail elderly to age in place, which our patients and their families often prefer. This all-inclusive care program is especially beneficial during these economic times as it eases the financial costs for participants and is cost effective for the state and federal government. Providers who make up the Florida PACE Association include: Florida PACE Center of Miami Jewish Health Systems; Hope PACE of Hope HealthCare Services in Fort Myers, Port Charlotte, Lehigh Acres and Naples, scheduled to open later this year; Neighborly PACE of Neighborly Care Network in Clearwater; and Chapters Health System of Temple Terrace.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 201142 Around The Islands With AnneIsland Pharmacy Is The Real Deal When It Comes To Personal Serviceby Anne MitchellBig drug store chains spend millions of dollars in advertising to try to convince you that they are just like your hometown pharmacy, with the personal service and prompt attention youd expect. Hardly. If you want to experience the real thing and they are few and far between these days theres a perfect example of a small town pharmacy right here on Sanibel. Island Pharmacy is Sanibel and Captivas only independent pharmacy, and one that is dear to the hearts of many residents and visitors. Pharmacists Reggie Mathai and Burl Sizemore are on hand to answer your questions. Regular customers who live locally can even have their prescriptions delivered free of charge. Queenie Viglione of Captiva was in the store this week picking up a prescription. Shes a big fan. I come here for the personal service. It is nice to walk into a place where they know your name. You can ask Reggie any question and not be embarrassed, she added. An example of how an independent can provide extra services is the way Mathai will seek out specific products for customers. He is often asked to carry old-fashioned, hard-to-find things such as Burma Shave brushes, Williams Shaving Soap and Grandmas Lye Soap. We have wholesalers across the entire country, Mathai said, and he can usually satisfy most requests. He noted that some people find relief from psoraisis and dry skin by using lye soap. Island Pharmacy also rents walkers and crutches including those for children and tall adults, which are hard to find. Mathai said walker gliders, also available, have been a boon to many users, helping them move along quicker and with less effort. These little plastic skis fit on two legs of the walker. The pharmacy also carries a $1 section that includes household and personal care products. Island Pharmacy is at 2330 Palm Ridge Road, phone 472-6188.

45 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 26, 2011Chamber Ambassadors Plan For SeasonThe Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce hosted its ambassadors planning meeting at Traditions on the Beach last week. The ambassadors, chosen from the 700 strong chamber membership, work as a welcome team for new members. Each ambassador is assigned a new member and their role is to welcome them to the chamber, explain how the chamber works and to invite them to attend the next monthly business lunch and after hours event. Ambassadors give new members a welcome pack, which contains a contact list of all members, the latest chamber magazine and the upcoming events calendar. Chamber Marketing Director Bridgit Stone-Budd hosts the meetings, presents the new members and the nature of their business. The chamber has welcomed nearly 50 new members already this year. This months new members included Kevin James Digital Arts, Captiva Holiday Village, How & Associates, Island Scene and MacIntosh Books & Paper. With the help of our ambassador team, we have seen a huge increase in our chamber member retention rate. They work very hard to keep all new members in the loop, and we find that it helps new members get the best out of their new partnership with the chamber, Stone-Budd said.

Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, I will be writing a few more columns on resiliency, the topic that was initiated last week. It has generated quite a bit of interest and many of you have asked for more information on it. As I mentioned, 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, self-esteem, autonomy, and the other components of resiliency. This week we will take a look at what constitutes resiliency and next week we will look at the resilient child and resiliency as a process. Generally speaking there are three main components of resiliency: cognitive and behavioral elements, social factors, and organic and genetic factors. Cognitive and behavioral factors that are important to develop for resiliency include social, emotional, problem-solving and analysis skills. Optimism, autonomy and self-esteem are also important building blocks of resiliency. Social factors that contribute to resiliency include relationships with parents, peers, teachers, and others. Parental attachment and bonding, high clear expectations, consistent boundaries and participation of children in family decision and responsibilities are essential to a supportive family relationship for resilient children. Factors at school that increase resiliency are supportive and caring teachers, high academic standards and expectations and opportunities for involvement that help to foster a sense of belonging and a belief in personal significance which can respond to a sense of alienation that many children experience. Peer relationships should be stable and positive, especially during the teen years. This can be quite a challenge at times. Research has suggested that peer relationships can provide support for resiliency even if the parental relationship is dysfunctional. Organic and genetic components that factor in to resilience include gender, temperament, intelligence, and physical health. Recent research has suggested that girls, children with an easygoing temperament, and children with above-average intelligence tend to be more resilient. These three components along with the development of an optimistic point of view, autonomy, and strong selfesteem form the basis of resiliency in children. Clearly the social, behavioral, at least some part of the school and peer factors can be observed, monitored and addressed as needed by parents who want their children to be resilient.continued on page 47 4980 Bay l ine Drive, Nort h Fort Myers, FL 3391 7 2 39. 656 .2300 | www.L C E C .ne t G G G G G G G G e e e e e e e t t t t t t t t t t t t h h h h h h h h h h h h e e e e e t t t t t t o o o o o o o o o o o l l l l s s s s y y y y y y o o o o o o u u u u u u n n n n n n e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e d d d d d d d d d d d d t t t t t t t o o o o o o o o b b b b b u u u u u d d d d d g g g g g e e e e e t t t t y y y y o o o o u u u r r r e e e e n n n n e e e r r r r g g g g y y y u u s s a a g g g g e t O O n n l l i i n n e e .

Hes razzing me to join him in his gluten-free diet, but I dont see the point unless you have irritable bowel syndrome (thats why he did it). I really like my pizza and beer too! I read you every week are there other health benefits? MJ, Hollywood, Florida My husband and I keep a very strict gluten-free diet. We think of gluten the protein found in many grains like wheat, barley, and rye as if it were an unnecessary food additive. Digestive problems are typically associated with gluten in those who are intolerant, but for every one person with classic digestive symptoms, there are eight with no GI symptoms. Its the other diseases that you will get medicated for, until you learn of your gluten intolerance, and then get it out of your diet (assuming it is the cause of your troubles).This will shock you but gluten sensitivity and/or Celiac disease can cause or contribute to: psoriatic arthritis, lupus, type 1 diabetes, dermatitis, ataxia, schizophrenia, anxiety, depression, attention deficit, peripheral neuropathy, muscle pain, headaches, bipolar, brain fog, fatigue, Hashimotos, elevated TPO antibodies, hypothyroidism and more. What are the odds that your physician will test you for gluten sensitivity before prescribing medication for these conditions?One problem is that gluten testing is frequently inaccurate. Blood tests like IgA anti-transglutaminase or antiendomysial antibodies may come back negative, and many doctors say if your GI symptoms are not severe, then dont bother avoiding gluten. Gluten is in anything made with all-purpose flour, which I think should be renamed no-purpose flour. Glutens in salad dressings, soy sauce, muffins, bread, pizza pretty much everything. Gluten acts like glue in regular flour. I interviewed Dr. Tom OBryan, an internationally recognized speaker specializing in gluten sensitivity and Celiac disease. He explained, Eating gluten will cause an inflammatory response in the intestines and throughout the body. Testing for gliadin antibodies is not thorough enough to detect an immune reaction because these tests basically detect Celiac at its end stage of intestinal deterioration, and many gluten-sensitive individuals are not end stage when they take their blood test. I recommend a brand new blood test, by Cyrex Labs, which evaluates 12 peptides of gluten (not just gliadin) therefore increasing the detection rate while also testing for cross reactivity with other foods that spark an immune reaction. Get more information, videos and articles from the gluten guy himself, Dr. Tom OBryan at www.theDr.com Up to 75 percent of people with persistent symptoms improve after going gluten-free, and I mean no detectable gluten, not even a teeny bit. If you feel better, dont ever reintroduce gluten again. A gastroenterology study found that 25 percent of gluten-sensitive people who eliminated all symptoms by going gluten-free, went on to develop an auto immune disorder within three years of eating gluten again!

Dear Mom & Me, We recently moved to a warmer part of the U.S. We were very anxious to get involved, meet new people and start contributing to the community. We tried but have now withdrawn to our own little cocoon. The people all seem resentful to the northerners. They want no change. They want to keep things exactly as they have been for the last 100 years. We thought we would like it here but now think that it is time to move. Do you have any suggestions? Damon Dear Damon, I dont like change. This is so common among the older generation and some people who are much younger and should know better. If you live, you are constantly changing and so is the world around you. You can never change people who are set in their ways you can only change how you feel about them. See if you can to join a newcomers group; maybe you will find others eager to move and shake just like you. I do wonder, why did you move to your present location and then try to start changing it? Lizzie Dear Damon, Well, there is the problem not them but you. Why go to a new location and try to change them as if you and your ways are better? Not too many people north, south, east or west would be welcoming of an individual coming into their homes and trying to change their way of life. Fine if you want to move again but, as long as you bring yourself and your notions to change people, you will continue to have problem.

Your colon, youll be thrilled to know, is the happy hellish home to most of these billions. But dont be in a hurry to try and get rid of them courtesy of some primitive cultish practice like voodoo or colon cleansing, the latter which not only does no good whatsoever but may in fact be harmful. (For those gullible colon cleansing folks... youve been hosed.) Stick to voodoo like my patients do, which may be the reason Dr. Dave bobbleheads are being snapped off the shelves and I have a constant pain in my prostate. Your bowels are teeming with lovely, yet sensitive, bacteria with names like E.coli and Petunia. However, your bowels also contain a bowlful of nastier, tougher, bacteria with names like Clostridia and Kevin. All of these bowel beauties, good and bad, compete for your pop tarts. Millions of them eagerly waiting in the bowels of your bowels with saliva dripping from their wee bacterial beaks. Sleep well now, Billy. Normally, the Petunias and those of similar ilk outnumber the nasty fellas significantly, a good thing for keeping your bowel flora and fauna in balance, albeit an uneasy one. The good flora, as mentioned, are a sensitive lot and should they be insulted by say an antibiotic or a foreign invader, they get nervous, cant eat and often faint. The hardier, evil bugs dont care and so they take over the pop tart smorgasbord, and in so doing can cause some rather unacceptable symptoms like bloody diarrhea, pain, cramps and death and stuff. So in this ongoing battle of the gut it makes sense to send in reinforcements from time to time. Welcome probiotics. Yes, you can deliberately add more of these sweet germy gems to that twisting cauldron of poop. That, in fact, is what a probiotic is. The most famous probiotic is, of course, lactobacillus, found in yogurt. When I first learned of the enormous bacterial count in yogurt I was quite viscerally affected, which may explain the reflexive gagging sounds I make when I spot a roving Yoplait in aisle six at the Piggly Wiggly. It also explains why I reach for the soothing Snickers bars to make me feel better as no bacteria could ever survive in my Snickers bars, thank you very much. But knowing what I do now about how great probiotics can be, I can almost tolerate a yogurt in the same room, as long as the lid is on and it doesnt look me directly in the eye. A live probiotic, taken at the same time that you might have to go on antibiotics, can restore the strength of the good bacteria, preventing the diarrhea often seen in those on antibiotics. Probiotics can also be useful in actually treating good old fashioned infectious diarrhea and possibly even irritable bowel syndrome. In addition to GI problems, probiotics are also considered in the treatment of vaginal, skin and respiratory infections and might even prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease. Most probiotics are bacteria similar to those naturally found in peoples guts, especially in those of breastfed infants (who have natural protection against many diseases.) Probiotics are available as supplements but are also found in foods like fermented and unfermented milk, miso, tempeh, and some juices and soy beverages. The bacteria may exist in these foods naturally or be added during preparation. Isnt that a lovely thought? Bill, add a pinch more salt to that miso and, ummm, do we have any more baby poop left? What is important is that not all probiotics are created equal and the correct probiotic, be it bacteria, yeast or Edmonton Oiler, must be chosen for the proper problem or it is a waste of time and bowel, and dont we all hate bowel waste. If you took the wrong probiotic for a gut problem you might be disappointed to learn that it was the probiotic used for vaginal yeast infections, particularly if your drivers license contains words like Charles or Gordon. So for most of you guys of the male species, it may be better to just inhale deeply... from a hockey bag. Like the column?

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I have recently experienced the trauma of a divorce that I did not want. It came out of nowhere. I know that I am experiencing grief, but sometimes I just feel so traumatized. Is this normal?A: Most of our traumas in life come from a significant loss such as death of a loved one, divorce, poor health, illness and disease, financial issues or broken friendships. Yes, it is natural to feel traumatized at times. You are experiencing trauma on all levels while going through an unwanted and unanticipated loss. Marriage is a commitment until the death of a spouse, not a spouse giving up and leaving the marriage. Being traumatized threatens our total equilibrium, especially when the loss is irreversible. It takes time to accept the irreversibility of a loss. Adjusting to a life that will never be the same can expose weakness within ourselves that makes us feel especially vulnerable. Great courage is often needed to adapt and carry on. Also realize that this loss can reveal strengths and resources you never knew you had. It is important that you take responsibility, too, for overcoming your loss and eventually you will achieve a greater acceptance of your life as you come to know it. In time your pain will subside and your wounds will heal as you discover an all-important truth: what remains is the most valuable thing you possess, life itself. It is hard for you to see that now because it is so fresh, but as you heal you will move forward and begin to live again. Dr. Clancy is a licensed mental health therapist, certified hypnotherapist, life coach, author and public speaker. You may email Dr. Connie at connie@drconstance.com.

Many people are concerned about the safety of our nation, should future attacks ever be attempted. We are honored to have Mr. Eastman speak on our campus and offer some additional insight. Eastwood began his career with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms before transferring to the Department of Defense. His career also included conducting and leading counterintelligence and criminal investigations, and he has also served as a senior executive for the IRS. In this frank and open discussion which moves beyond the rhetoric, political hyperbole, and media hype, Eastwood will discuss why our intelligence failed us on 9/11 and the state of our current preparation. He will also cover the use of torture in the war on terror, terrorist surveillance, and why it took so long to kill Osama. The Academy at Shell Point is a lifelong learning educational initiative for the residents of the retirement community. The academy provides anywhere from 70 to 90 classes each semester, encompassing a well-rounded curriculum of educational opportunities for senior adults.
