We feel that we have accomplished our original goal of improving the appearance of the entrance to the island, and that the work we have done has created a legacy of lasting natural beauty which will only grow and improve in the coming years, said Sanibel Beautification President Ada Shissler. Beginning in 2000, Sanibel Beautification raised the funds, and worked with local landscaper Bill Blauvelt of Southern Traditions Landscaping, to plan and complete the planting of the causeway intersection and the Lindgren Boulevard medians with the help of dozens of volunteers who turned out to do the actual work. SBI volunteers have continued to maintain the area since it was planted. They partnered with the VFW in the replacement of the flag pole at the Causeway/ Periwinkle intersection, and created a memorial space for Periwinkle Pavers at the foot of the flag pole. Sanibel Beautification has provided the Christmas lighting there for the past 10 years. The wholehearted support of the entire community has made it possible to accomplish so much more than was originally envisioned, said Shissler. By partnering with the City of Sanibel, the Chamber of Commerce, and Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation to form the Periwinkle Partnership following Hurricane Charley, the partnership was able to not just restore the vegetation along Periwinkle Way, but to add features which greatly increased the comfort, safety and pleasure of all who travel there. Pocket parks now provide rest areas with benches donated by the Lions Club, and bike racks. Picnic areas have been created at Roadside Park and the Palm Ridge/ Periwinkle where a native plant botanical has been developed with 29 species of native plants, trees, shrubs and grasses identified. Six three-tier drinking fountains have been installed in convenient locations. In addition, the partnership provided professional planning, larger canopy forming trees, understory planting, sodding of bare spots and filling in of barren areas. The most recent project for Sanibel Beautification was the landscaping of the Chamber of Commerce parking lot, a critical area since it is the first place most visitors see, and a favorable first impression is important, Shissler said. SBI is currently working with the Sanibel Bicycle Club as it develops an orientation center along Periwinkle Way, and $10,000 has been committed to providing plant materials for this project.continued on page 6 Sanibel Beautification volunteers, back: Bill McBeath, Lou Scariot and Bill Boswell, treasuer; front, Debbie Staley, Ada Shissler, president, and Diane StocksShell Museum Accepting Entries For Live Mollusk Photo CompetitionSo far, a dozen amateur nature photographers have taken a shot at winning The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museums second annual Live Mollusk Photography Competition.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 20114 Week 3 ReportIslanders Send Troop Care Packagessubmitted by Ted TysonBecause of the wonderful people and the great support they have given to this campaign, we are right on track to meet our goals of sending 500 carepackages to the troops in harms way. Thank you all for your generosity. We promised to let you know what other things that our donors are doing. The Jensen brothers of Captiva, who gave a wonderful donation to the care package campaign, are also active members of an organization called Operation Open Arms, (OOA) which was established to give military personnel on R&R from the war zone some happy times here on the islands and other areas of Lee County. For more information, visit http://operationopenarms.org and youll see how Dave, Jimmy and John Jensen fit in so well, and how you can fit in too, and do so much good so very quietly. Other donors give magazines and paperback books to send to troops. Some donate these in addition to checks, others donate these items because they want to participate and this is their only way. All donations are gratefully appreciated and the Bank of the Islands will accept them and check donations at the branch at 1699 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL 33957. Books and magazines that cannot be sent to the war zones will be donated to the local VA Clinic and/or to the VA Hospital in Tampa. Recent sports/ computer/news/movie magazines are especially needed, and will be shipped out monthly. The troops like them even if they are dated. To allow as many people as possible the opportunity to participate, the campaign has reached out to the churches of Sanibel, the Sanibel Fire Department (scheduled on September 27), the San-Cap Chamber of Commerce, and will soon contact business, civic and professional organizations, offering to briefly speak of the needs of our troops and the opportunities to participate. If we have missed your group and you wish to have a speaker at your next meeting, contact Ted Tyson at 472-8394. Week three was a banner week for donations, and each week seems to surpass the previous week. This week we received our first $1,000 corporate donation from Marty Harrity, Mark Marinello, and Randy Wayne White, representing Doc Fords of Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach and the Beached Whale (50 packages), Bank of the Islands, $500 (25), BoTI employees (2), Margaret Feiner, Ginny Fleming, Elizabeth Stephenson (1) each.

We Cannot Tell A Lie. Original Italian Ice Cream Original Italian Ice Cream Beach Walk Provides Fun And Information For Shell LoversA small group turned out for The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museums Beach Walk at Gulfside City Park/Algiers Beach on September 27. Volunteer Dotty DeVasure gave a short presentation as she introduced different shell species and described their physical characteristics and other traits. She also informed everyone about the best collecting times and places. She then led the shellers out to the beach where they engaged in the famous Sanibel Stoop as they picked through mollusks and bivalves. DeVasure was on hand to answer questions and identify shells. Jandy Bird of Sanibel, who has been a Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum docent for seven years, finally took part in a beach walk. Ive been trying to come out with Dotty for ages, she said. She does a great job. Ginny Cuneo of Chester, Connecticut, also made it a point to spend a sunny morning on the beach. We saw (the beach walk) in the paper and thought it would be fun to listen to somebody local who knew what we were looking at, she said. It was informational and interesting. Shell Museum volunteer Dotty DeVasure, right, and Jandy Bird look for shells during Beach Walk.

9 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 2011Zonta Hosts District ConferenceThe Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva hosted the annual conference for Zonta International District 11 at the Sundial Resort on Sanibel, September 22 to 24. District 11 comprises the southeastern states from North Carolina to the Caribbean, and includes the Bahamas and British Virgin Islands. There are 42 clubs in the district and 33 of them were represented by delegates and other members. A total of 155 registered for the conference, including 31 first-timers and a representative of the Zonta International board, Kirsi Nickels from Finland. For Zonta members, these conferences are a rich source of networking, sharing and celebrating successes all while meeting the Zonta International mission of improving the status of women. The chosen theme was Saving the World, One Woman at a Time. The club received support from other clubs in the region, including Sarasota, Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs and Naples. Co-chairs Nancy Dreher, Carolyn Gray and Linda Robison had help from local club members, 20 of whom were registered to attend. The feedback we received from our guests showed that they overwhelmingly enjoyed the Sanibel experience, the tropical setting and the conference speakers, said club president, Barbara Nagle. Local experts featured included Kevin Lewis, executive director, and Rosemary Boisvert, managing director for the Transitional Living Center, at Southwest Florida Addiction Services, who were joined by Zontian Phyllis Gresham to discuss successful partnerships and advocacy efforts. Zonta has partnered with SWFAS for the past 10 years, contributing many hundreds of hours of service and more than $56,000 in grants. Nicole Waid, acting chief U.S. attorney, Middle District of Florida, spoke passionately about the work of the State Attorneys office and task forces combating human trafficking. Standing in at the last moment for Dr. Alice Brunner, executive director of the PACE Center for Girls, Lee County, another Zonta partner, was the director of development for PACE, Melissa Simontis. She spoke about the PACE philosophy of addressing the special needs of girls and received a standing ovation. Dr. Jose Leal, executive director and curator of the Sanibel Shell Museum, gave the luncheon address, titled, Shells and the Stories They Tell Us. By tradition at each conference, member clubs pledge the portion of funds raised locally that they will send to support the work of Zonta International. This year, with 40 clubs pledging, the amount going to ZI was $65,173, of which $18,750 came from the local club.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 201110 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellHere is a quote from a board member of the Blessings in a Backpack (BIB) program of Lee County: In Southwest Florida, its becoming increasingly difficult for parents to feed their children. Inflation, job loss and low wages are very real challenges for many parents. On average, todays minimum wage has 30 percent less purchasing power than it did in the s. In some cases parents work jobs with wages so low they cant afford to buy groceries. We are talking about the necessities of life; food, shelter, and clothing. Shelter is a major problem in this economy. Thrift stores provide a break when it comes to clothing, but food... have you been to the grocery store lately? Food costs are continually going up and money can only be stretched so far. Even food pantries are struggling to keep food on their shelves. Florida ranks fourth in the United States for the number of K-12 students eligible for Federal Food Assistance programs. In Lee County, more than 62 percent of K-12 students participate in those programs, said Scott Fischer, BIB Lee County board chairman. About three years ago, Fischer and a group of friends, including Sanibelians John Nicholson and Craig Albert, got involved with the Blessings in a Backpack program and found an overwhelming need at Tice Elementary School, where 98 percent of the students (around 450) rely on Federal Food Assistance programs. Blessings in a Backpack is designed to feed elementary school children whose families qualify for the federally funded Free/Reduced Price Meal program and have little or no food on the weekends. Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of this program. It costs $80 to feed one American schoolchild in the program for an entire 38-week school year. The Blessings in a Backpack program steps up where federal aid stops, by feeding children on the weekend. Every Friday afternoon, children receive backpacks filled with healthy kid-friendly, ready-to-eat items. Students return every Monday morning with an empty backpack, a full stomach, and an eager mind. Test scores, reading skills, positive behavior, general health, and attendance have improved dramatically. This happens when children get the nourishment they need. Rotary guest speaker last week, John Nicolson, board member of Blessings in a Backpack Lee County said, This program has made a world of difference at Tice Elementary and Edgewood Academy, Fort Myers. Tice was one of only three of 25 Title I schools in Lee County to make annual yearly progress under No Child Left Behind legislation last year and the first school adopted by BIB Lee County in 2008. When a student doesnt have to concentrate on what they will have to eat that day, they can concentrate on their studies. Nicholson explained that Lee Countys Blessings in a Backpack program initially focused on helping the neediest schools in the county, but the realization is that there are children with these same needs in all areas of Lee County. We are a school choice county and parents can elect to have their children attend schools near their place of employment. While BIB continues its mission in the neediest of areas, it now also reaches out to identify families and students within many areas of Lee County. Nicholson and Albert are working with The Sanibel School and FISH and are already providing BIB backpacks to students on the islands. They are making an initial three-year commitment within our local community and are hopeful that they will in the future be working with Heights Elementary School. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday morning at Beachveiw Steakhouse & Tavern, 1100 Par View Drive.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 201114 Create Scarecrow, Help Lakes ParkRegistration and sponsorships are still available for the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundations annual Scarecrows in the Park contest. Local businesses, organizations, schools and residents can sign up to create personalized, unique scarecrows and entries will be voted on by celebrity judges and festival attendees to determine the winner. The scarecrows will be on display during the Lakes Park annual Fall Festival and Halloween Extravaganza October 15 to 31 on Mondays through Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m., Fridays from 5-10 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. In addition to the scarecrow contest, the festival will include a pumpkin patch, bounce houses, hayrides, the Halloween Express train and more. The proceeds from the festival and the scarecrow entry fees will go to the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation in its efforts to maintain the park. The foundation is currently working to raise funds to build a botanic garden and provide park improvements. More than 10,000 attendees are expected. Competition is fun, but gets serious as local businesses and organizations compete to create the most entertaining and unique scarecrows, says Marsha Asp, chairperson for the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation. Many companies get involved as a fun team-building exercise and create a scarecrow that reflects their organizations mission and goals. The scarecrows are an opportunity for local businesses and groups to promote and market themselves while also helping to improve the beauty and amenities offered at Lakes Park. For more information on the festival, visit www.lakesparkenrichmentfoundation. org/events or call 239-533-7575. Florida Neurology Groups scarecrows Refuge Gets First Dibs On Climate Change ExhibitThe Southeast Regional Office of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service staff thought immediately of Sanibels J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge when deciding where to debut its three new traveling Climate Change interpretive exhibits. One arrived on September 19 to the refuges free Education Center. Its because of our high visitation and our wonderful education center and staff, said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland. The exhibit will stay at the refuge through Ding Darling Days and at least until the end of January to help kick off the refuges winter lecture series, which will start on January 20 with an expert lecture on climate change. Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge sponsors the series with support from local businesses. For the complete 2012 schedule, visit www.dingdarlingsociety.org. The climate change exhibit displays a map of coastal refuges, including Ding Darling, that are at risk from rising sea levels, loss of wetlands and up to 30 percent of habitat, and flooding and drought due to climate change. A total of 67 of the more than 130 refuges in the Southeast region are threatened. Signs explain different aspects of climate change, including The Climate and Wildlife and You Can Help, the latter advising visitors to recycle, save electricity, plant trees, volunteer at a refuge and learn more about earth and the climate. The childrens component features a video screen that introduces animated characters: a loggerhead turtle, oystercatcher, grain of sand, and lighthouse. When selected, each character talks about how climate change will affect it. continued on page 21 Children try out the new traveling climate change exhibit in the refuge education center Make your reservations today! 1231 Middle Gulf Drive472-4646 Dinner for 2 for $29.95 with a glass of house wine eachChoose any entree from our SUNSET DINNER MENUChoice of: soup or salad comes with potato, veggie, hot baked bread and fresh herb olive oil Available only from 5:00-6:30 pm daily!(Does not include tax or gratuity.

15 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 2011Local Reverend Named ScholarThe Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ recently announced that its senior pastor, the Rev. Dr. John H. Danner, has been named a Guthrie Scholar by Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. The Guthrie Scholars Program is offered by the seminary every year, and is named for Dr. Shirley Guthrie, a former professor of theology at Columbia. The program provides an allexpenses-paid opportunity for clergy to explore topics pertinent to the life and work of the Christian church. This years Guthrie Scholars will be focusing on the meaning of sabbath in contemporary life. Dr. Danners work will focus in particular around the meaning of sabbath for those already in retirement. He will be studying with Wayne Muller, author of Sabbath: Restoring the Sacred Rhythm of Rest. Dr. Danner chose his topic due to the high percentage of retirees living on Sanibel and in attendance at his church. He received his undergraduate degree in philosophy at the University of Maine, his master of divinity from the Bangor (ME) Theological Seminary and his PhD in religious studies from Boston University. He has also studied at the Onondaga Pastoral Counseling center in Syracuse, New York and the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation in Bethesda, MD. Dr. Danner is a Fellow in the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, and was ordained by the United Church of Christ in 1980. He has served as senior pastor at the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ since January, 2010. He and his wife Linda Bradbury-Danner, live on Sanibel and are the parents of three adult children. Rev. Dr. John H. Danner, senior pastor Book ReviewThe Touristby Max FriedersdorfMilo Weavers job is that of a tourist for the CIA an undercover agent with no home, no identity and the authority to kill if necessary as he goes about his black ops assignments around the globe. In his late 30s, Milo is no longer the buff killer he once was after recruitment from a small college campus, but has grown a bit thick around the waist with a layer of flab over his big shoulders. Milo also has an attractive wife and an adopted daughter at home in Brooklyn, where the ex-husband tends to show up regularly when Milos away doing dirty jobs for the CIA. Trying to leave his old life of lies and secrets behind, Milo has settled into a desk job in New York, but the capture of a long-sought assassin and accusations against an old colleague require Milo to once again assume the guise of a tourist for the Company to find out the truth. Milo has many aliases and a pocketful of false passports, as the trail leads to Venice, Geneva, Paris, Berlin, Alabama, New Mexico, Washington, DC, and Disney World. The Tourist, a novel by Olen Steinhauer, has drawn rave reviews in the The New York Times, Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly and Time. The Tourist should be savored now. As rich and intriguing as the best of le Carre, Deighton, or Graham Greene. Steinhauers complex, moving spy novel is perfect for our uncertain, emotionally fraught times. Los Angeles Times.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 201116 Red October Is Just Around The Cornerby Capt. Matt MitchellNear perfect morning high tides last week had the redfish chewing. With the start of Red October just around the corner, redfish fishing will just keep getting better and better until it peaks, usually around the middle of November. Coming across a school of big mature redfish can happen just about anywhere as they make their annual run out of the back country in large schools and out through the passes to spawn. Consistently catching lots of big redfish will be common for this next six weeks or so. Some of the better redfish action was close to home for me last week. Mangrove shorelines and keys from Cork Key south to the mouth of the river were all good places to get hooked up. When fishing under the bushes, a cut pinfish for bait was hard to beat. Not all the redfish for the next six weeks or so are going to be found right up against the red mangrove roots. A few other places I always do well on redfish this time of year are more about the salt and pepper bottom and sand holes than the usual mangrove shoreline fishing. Grass flats around Fishermans Key and Merwin Key in the mouth of the river will be holding some bigger schools. Shallow sandbars are also good places to try. The sandbar that runs around the outside of Wulfert Keys, along with the Jug Creek shoal, always get some bigger schools of redfish on them. Scouting these areas and working out how the fish use them on different stages of the tide can pay off big. Unlike mangrove fishing out on the open grass flats is all about laying your chunk of cut ladyfish or mullet chunk right in the sandy spots. Sitting way off and making long casts with the chunks to what seems to like the middle of nowhere caught lots of reds. When the sun is out, spotting how these sand holes and mottled bottom areas are laid out is easy. When you get to sight-fish a moving school of redfish, the bait simply does not matter. Just pitch out in front of them and hold on. With so many hungry fish its all about competition as they charge the bait. Redfish and Captiva passes both will hold huge amounts of redfish as they make their annual run from the back country to the gulf. The Sanibel Pier will also light up with a big redfish run. The majority of these fish around the passes will be well over the slot of 27 inches and should be handled carefully as they are the breeding stock and the future of our great redfish stocks. Last week I had some family trips where it was all about fast action. We fished feeding fish under birds both bayside and gulfside. Blitzes in the bay were composed of lots of ladyfish along with trout, bluefish, jacks and Spanish mackerel. These schools in the bay also held a few scattered rolling tarpon. Areas north of Chino Island were a great place to keep a rod bent. Gulfside or roughly a mile of so out of Redfish Pass, Captiva Pass or Boca Grande Pass, the birds, baitfish and feeding fish were very active. Larger Spanish mackerel along with bonita, and even a few king mackerel, were easy to locate and catch. With a boatload of clients, this makes for easy fishing, either running and gunning the breaking schools of fish and casting into them with small silver spoons or trolling small lipped plugs through the schools made for multiple hook-ups. With autumn here and the water temperature starting to cool off, fishing is really picking up. The annual bait migration is kicking off slowly, making its way south along the beaches and through the bay with all the predators that follow. These last few weeks, after a long hot summer, the water has really come alive.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions email captmattmitchell@aol.com.

Mother Manatee And Calf Return To The Wild After RehabilitationAfter completing a successful rehabilitation at Miami Seaquarium, a mother manatee and her calf were released back into the wild September 21 at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva. Nori, (mother) an 1,100-pound adult manatee, was rescued on July 13, from the waters of North Captiva, where she was found floating and unable to dive, with a broken rib puncturing her lung. Cappi, (female) a calf manatee was found next to her mother at just 48 pounds. Although Cappi did not sustain damage, it is believed that her mother gave birth soon after the boat strike. During the last two years, more than one thousand manatees have died, said Dr. Maya, Miami Seaquariums staff veterinarian. This makes every rescue and release effort that much more important todays pair is truly special for us. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institutes preliminary report, 67 manatee deaths have occurred this year from watercraft accidents alone.

World-Renowned Underwater Explorer To Speak In Fort MyersLee Memorial Health System Foundation announced that it will host world renowned underwater explorer and diver Barry Clifford. Clifford is the only person ever to have found a full pirate shipwreck. Cliffords findings have been detailed in prestigious media including The New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, The History Channel and National Geographic Channel. Clifford made world headlines in 1984 with his discovery of the pirate shipwreck Whydah wrecked in a storm off Cape Cod, Massachusetts in 1717. Over 200,000 artifacts and treasures from the wreck were in tact and, as of 2011, were still being recovered and brought to the surface. Cliffords findings have been remarkably educational for historians and have changed the way we view pirates, their habits and lifestyle. On Thursday, October 13 at the prestigious Club at Renaissance, Clifford will share his amazing story in support of The Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida Capital Campaign. The Club at Renaissance is located at 12901 Renaissance Way in Fort Myers. Clifford will share his tales of discovery in a speech entitled Whydah Expedition The Legacy Left Behind. The evening will include a plated dinner featuring island cuisine, cocktails and silent and live auctions full of trips and treasures. Live auction selections include luxury trips to see Cliffords National Geographic traveling exhibit in Phoenix, Arizona; a trip to Cape Cod, Massachusetts to visit the Expedition Whydah Sea Lab & Learning Center; an escape to Grand Cayman Island and a trip for four to St. Thomas to stay at the Buccaneer Hotel and take a VIP private tour of the Cruzan Rum factory. Silent auction selections include luxury trips to Key West and St. Augustine, fine jewelry, artwork, spa treatments incorporating elements of the sea, and fashion handbags. Lee Memorial Health System Foundation Senior Director of Marketing Jeannie Cummings said, We are incredibly honored to have Mr. Clifford headline this evening on behalf of our Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida Capital Campaign. His appearances are very rare and we are delighted that the Southwest Florida community will have the opportunity to hear his educational and truly remarkable story of Cape Cod childhood lore that came true. Florida has a wonderful and extensive pirate history, so we expect a quickly sold out evening. The event is sponsored in part by Lee Memorial Health System Foundation, The Club at Renaissance, Range Rover/Land Rover of Fort Myers, Brittania Electric and Ruby & Pearls. Norman Love Confections will provide ultra-premium chocolates and confections for each live auction winning bidder. Admission is $150 per person and corporate sponsorships are currently available. Call 343-6950 for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear how pirates really lived. Clifford is one of the worlds best-known undersea explorers and has been involved in underwater archaeological exploration for virtually his entire adult life. Between 1974 and 1984, Clifford organized, directed and conducted dive-related work such as underwater construction, oil-spill control, contract sea-rescue and salvage operations, including the MV Islander ferry in 1980. He also used historical research, remote-sensing techniques, and underwater surveys to locate numerous shipwrecks off Cape Cod, as well as at Hellgate in New Yorks East River, the Indian Ocean, and a number of locations in the Caribbean. After several years of exhaustive research and exploration, Clifford made world headlines in 1984 with his discovery of the pirate shipwreck Whydah wrecked in a storm off Cape Cod in 1717. The Whydah is the only solidly-identified pirate shipwreck ever discovered, and, as of 2011, artifacts from the wreck site are still being archaeologically excavated during Cape Cods brief dive seasons. With over 200,000 artifacts recovered, the project has completely revised the worlds understanding of pirates, shedding new light on a lost age (The New York Times March 11, 1997). The Massachusetts Board of Underwater Archaeological Resources, and other state and federal agencies, have lauded the Whydah Project as a model for private archaeology, and the project has been covered in National Geographic Magazine and National Geographic Television as part of a National Geographic Special Event. Recovery operations are conducted with his 75 vessel Vast Explorer. With his background as a teacher, Clifford has always emphasized the educational aspects of his work. In 1990, he established a five-year visiting exhibition of Whydah artifacts at The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum. In 1996, he established Exhibition Whydah Sea-Lab & Learning Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. This museum has proved to be a unique showcase for what underwater exploration can accomplish through careful historical and scientific research. It was the only maritime museum featured by The New York Times in its 2002 special Museums of America section. Artifacts from The Whydah Collection have also been featured as traveling exhibits at such venues as The City Arts Center in Edinburgh Scotland (1995-1996), Explorers Hall of The National Geographic Society in Washington DC (1999-2000), The Ubersee Museum in Bremen, Germany (1999-2000), and The Statehouse Museum in Boston, Massachusetts (2000-2001). In 2007, a selection of artifacts from the Whydah collection began a major nationwide traveling exhibition, entitled Real Pirates under the auspices of The Nationalcontinued on page 30

21 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 2011 Plant SmartAir Potatoby Gerri ReavesAir potatos (Dioscorea bulbifera) name doesnt begin to capture its threatening nature. If you ever see a vine with light brown smooth potatoes hanging from it, youve seen one of the most invasive and ecologically damaging plants in South Florida. Also called air yam, this plants record reads like an FBI rap sheet. The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) recommends that air potato be removed from public and private properties to help protect the states natural areas. Furthermore, the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council lists the plant as one of Floridas most invasive plant species, earning it category-1 status. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services added it to the Florida Noxious Weed List in 1999. Take note, homeowners: plants on the Florida Noxious Weed List may not be introduced, possessed, moved, or released without a permit. In the opinion of scientists and laypeople alike, this climber is as harmful as the infamous kudzu. Native to tropical Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, this vine develops stems of 70 feet or more. It invades a wide variety of habitats, including pinelands and hammocks, where it excels at climbing trees and smothering and killing them. Eye-catching spherical tubers, or potatoes, form in the leaf axils. The long broad heart-shaped leaves look pleated, so it is easy to understand why it was once valued as a fast-growing ornamental. The pale green flowers appear in panicles or spikes about four inches long that seem to dangle from the vine. The seeds are partially winged. Air potato has a long history in this hemisphere, for it was introduced from Africa to the Americas during the years of slave trading. It is documented to have arrived in Florida in 1905. Fortunately, the stems will die back during the colder months. However, the aerial tubers store the seeds to wreak later havoc. And, to make dispersal even more difficult to prevent, the underground tubers can float. Eliminating this scourge is a daunting ongoing process. Homeand business-owners can help by eradicating it from their properties. Sources: fleppc.org and edis.ifas.ufl.edu. Plant Smart explores sustainable gardening practices that will help you create a low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, hurricaneand pest-resistant South Florida landscape.

Volunteers throughout Lee County will be boating for wildlife as a part of this Keep Lee County Beautiful event. The removal of debris and fishing line is an immediately satisfying and meaningful way to protect wildlife. Every year birds and sea turtles are caught in fishing line. Abandoned crab traps can trap and drown diamondback terrapins that need to surface to breathe. For the second year, Jensens Twin Palms Marina is adopting Roosevelt Channel to clean and Captiva Kayak at McCarthys Marina is hosting a volunteer kayak cleanup of Buck Key the last week in October. This year Tween Waters Inn will be providing kayaks for volunteers to clean up Hurricane Hole on Buck Key. Castaways is providing kayaks for FGCU students to clean up SCCFs Albright Island in Blind Pass. Sanibel volunteers with kayaks are needed for the end of Dixie Beach Boulevard and Bay Drive. Sanibels east end canals could also use some cleaning. Also, anglers are needed to collect monofilament line from the back bay mangroves around Blind Pass and Wulfert Point with a volunteer to help. If you are able to clean any time in October, contact Dee Serage at SCCF, 472-2329, or dserage@sccf.org.

25 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 2011 CROW Case Of The Week: Coopers Hawkby Emilie AlfinoPeople go to hospitals to get well, but birds of prey are more likely to get hurt there than helped. On August 5, a Coopers hawk was found in the parking lot of Cape Coral Hospital. He came to CROW with absolutely no history, as is often the case. Coopers hawks are very high-stress patients; you have to be very cautious handling them because they can injure themselves or even die from the stress, said Dr. Jess Brugler. We have special hoods we can put over them so they cant see, and it helps them calm down. The hawk was slightly thin but otherwise in pretty good shape except for his left wing where the equivalent of a persons forearm is located. I noticed some swelling, Dr. Jess said. He just wasnt using the wing quite right. An X-ray was taken and showed he had a fracture of his radius. The best news is that it was a very short fracture and the bone was still in very good alignment, with his bones right next to each other, Dr. Jess explained. Thats probably why the swelling wasnt worse than it was. It also was a closed fracture, meaning the skin wasnt broken. In factures like this, even in humans, the other forearm bone, the ulna, serves as a kind of internal splint, Dr. Jess explained. With most fractures like this, we would put a bandage on his wing to keep him from flapping that wing, but we decided not to do that with him, the doctor said. He was put in a quiet cage and left alone. We kept the ICU lights out to keep it dark in there. You could say we put him on cage rest. Three days later, staff rechecked him to see how the swelling was and gave him an injection of calcium. A lot of calcium is used to heal bones and Dr. Jess didnt want the hawks other bones to get brittle as a result. On August 22, his cage had to be cleaned, so he was taken out. He had been eating really well and was fairly quiet. It gave Dr. Jess a chance to palpate the fracture area, and she could feel that his bone was starting to heal but remained a little bit unstable. I wanted to leave him alone for a few more days, Dr. Jess said. A week later, another calcium injection was administered, just to be safe. More X-rays were taken and the bone appeared to be worse but looks can be deceiving. Its actually just new bone being formed around the fracture and that can make it appear to be swollen or misaligned. It was healing really well and it was very stable, said Dr. Jess. That course of treatment continued for about another week and then the hawk was moved outside to a small flight cage so he could practice flying. He was only there for a few days when he started getting showing stress, as he was bumping into walls because he wanted to keep flying. We wanted to get him back home to Cape Coral as soon as possible, but not to the hospital parking lot, said Dr. Jess. The Coopers hawk was released on September 2 in a wooded area in Cape Coral as close to his home territory as possible. This case is a really good example of how we can keep these birds calm and quiet and they can heal amazingly well on their own, Dr. Jess concluded. These guys are just fantastic in their ability to heal.

Naples Winter Wine FestivalTwenty-nine of the most revered names in the world of wine will arrive in Naples January 27 to 29 for the 2012 Naples Winter Wine Festival. This years theme is Believe in the Magic There are nine vintners making their festival debut this year including GAJA, one of Italys greatest Barbaresco and Barolo producers, Dana Estates from Rutherford, which received a perfect 100-point score from wine critic Robert Parker Jr. for its 2007 Lotus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, and Domaine Bouchard Pre & Fils from Burgundy, who according to the New York Times has experienced a stunning revitalization since it was purchased by Joseph Henriot in the mid-1990s. Also new to the festival is Korta Katarina from Croatia, owned by Naples Children & Education Foundation Trustees Penny and Lee Anderson, who will generously pour their wines as one of the vintners at the luncheon following the Meet the Kids Day event. Vintners for the 2012 festival come from four continents and seven countries. Domestic producers will represent 59 percent of participating vintners, with an impressive 41 percent coming from as far as Australia, Argentina and Europe. We are thrilled to have good friends from California and Oregon who have been extremely generous over the years and are returning to participate, said Bob Clifford, festival co-chair and trustee of the Naples Children & Education Foundation, which founded the festival in 2001. We are also very excited to share the table with an extensive array of internationally renowned producers participating in this years event, adds co-chair Joan Clifford. Each year our call for NCEFs childrens causes gets just a little bit louder, and our event gets just a little bit more magical in our efforts to help children in need. The 2012 Honored Vintner is HRH Prince Robert of Luxembourg, president of Chteau Haut-Brion and Chteau La Mission Haut-Brion. Prince Robert is the greatgrandson of Clarence Dillon, who bought Chteau Haut-Brion in 1935. His family acquired Chteau La Mission Haut-Brion, in 1983. Chteau Haut-Brion is one of only five of several thousand makers of Bordeaux to produce Bordeaux wines classified as Premier Grand Cru. In 2009, Chteau La Mission Haut-Brion was considered as a potential First Growth by the Liv-ex Bordeaux Classification. Combined, the two chteauxs have received 12 perfect 100-point scores from top critics. A generous supporter of NCEF, the prince participated in the 2004 and 2010 festivals. He is among 29 world-famous vintners who will personally pour their special wines during the festival. Festival ticket packages are $8,500 per couple; $20,000 for reserved seating at the same vintner dinner for two couples.

31 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 2011Book SigningFor 22 years, longtime Charlotte County resident Linda Salisbury delighted readers with her weekly humor column. The best of that material has been collected and published by Tabby House in a new book titled But You Dont Look Funny. Salisbury will sign and talk about her books from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m., Saturday, October 1, at Suncatchers Dream, 630 Tarpon Bay, next to the Over Easy Caf on Sanibel. Salisbury and her husband own timeshare at the Caribe Beach Resort and have spent untold hours and weeks on the island, enjoying its shops, restaurants and beaches. Through the years, Salisburys adventures and (mis)adventures while vacationing on Sanibel with her husband and/or family made for humorous fodder for her musings, along with many other topics. She is also the author of the Bailey Fish Adventure series, which has many Sanibel references and features the alphabet cone shell in Book 8. The new book covers a wide-range of favorite topics: clutter, fruitcake, mad cat disease, cooking mishaps, grits, red lights, marriage, dieting and kids. She writes of a Sanibel Thanksgiving vacation with family in timeshare units, What was provided by the management for the week on the beach should have been adequate, but there were major problems. There were lots of us and all the towels at the resort were the same color: beige. Lovely, sand-colored beige. You can imagine the subsequent mixup! Salisbury describes her dog as having teeth that included wires that he used to break chains. His paws had glass cutters to remove jalousie panes. He is a cross between a terrier and a Swiss Army knife. A frequent topic was Man in My Life, who suffered from delusions of neatness and had personal encounters with the Red Light Fairy, who saw him coming on U.S. 41 and waved her wand at the traffic signals. And then there is, Timeshares should throw in the towel. Her Bailey Fish Adventure series includes eight books, and she wrote Mudd Saves the Earth, a humorous environmental book also for ages eight to 12. Many of her books have won awards and honors. Anyone wishing to reserve autographed copies may contact Suncatchers Dream at 472-7860. Free Seminar On Self-PublishingJim and Linda Salisbury, founders of Tabby House and authors of Smart Self-Publishing: An authors guide to producing a marketable book, third edition, are offering a free seminar on self-publishing. The seminar will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, October 4 at the Island Book Nook, 2330 Palm Ridge Road. Seminar topics include various ways of getting published; the reality of national distribution; the importance of knowing your market; doing the book right; using book style; credentials (copyright, barcode, ISBNs); typesetting and cover design considerations, uploading to Kindle and Nook, and advantages and disadvantages of new printing options, such as digital printing, which allows authors to have a quality book in hard or soft-cover in small quantities. Digital printing is a popular method of printing for poets, people compiling family or local histories, or authors wishing to test the market before investing in a larger press run. The public is invited to ask questions. As book producers, Tabby House, formerly of Charlotte County and now located in Virginia, has worked with authors all over the country and Southwest Florida in the last two decades to produce their memoirs, family histories, novels, and poetry as quality books in desired quantities. Customers also select the type of cover, such as softcover, or hardcover with a jacket. Tabby House editors work closely with authors on the editing and setup of the books to make sure that all aspects are totally satisfactory before the books go to press. The Salisburys have presented numerous seminars and workshops on selfpublishing for bookstores and writers groups. They have produced more than 300 books for authors and independent presses. Jim Salisbury is former president of the Florida Publishers Association and with Linda is co-author of The Breezy Guide to Charlotte County, Florida. Linda is also author a new collection of humor titled, But You Dont Look Funny, and the eight-book Bailey Fish Adventure series. Her series for middlegrade readers has garnered national awards and honors.

In the meantime, you might want to consider shifting your focus to another area of your life that needs attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for beauty-loving Bovines to enjoy something special for the senses. It will restore your spirit and return you to the workaday world ready for the next challenge. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With your planetary ruler, Mercury, going retrograde, you might want to slow down the pace in pursuing some of your projects. Rushing things could be counterproductive. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Tensions begin to ease in those once-testy relationships. This helps create a more positive aspect all around. Expect to hear news that could lead you to rethink a recent decision. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The pace of activity that had slowed last week now begins to pick up. This is good news for Leos and Leonas who have career-building plans that need to be put into operation. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Venus offers encouragement to romance-seeking Virgos who are ready to get up, get out and meet more people, one of whom could be that long-sought soul mate. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) An ongoing problem with a co-worker might need to be sent to arbitration. Get all your facts together so that you have a solid base from which to make your argument. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You are usually decisive about most matters. But you might want to defer your decisionmaking this week until you get more facts. Someone is holding out on you. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) That quiet period is ending, and a new burst of activity creates some problems at the workplace. But things are soon resolved, and everything goes back to normal. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Relationships could be either helpful or hurtful as you pursue your career goals. You might have to make some difficult choices depending on what your priorities are. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might still have some doubts about a career move that could involve a lot of travel. If so, continue to check things out until you feel secure about making a decision. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Love rules, as Venus continues to exercise her cosmic influence on both single and attached Pisces. New developments might cause you to change your travel plans. BORN THIS WEEK: You often think of others before you consider your own needs. You enjoy helping people and would make a fine teacher or caregiver. On Oct. 9, 1635, religious dissident Roger Williams is banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony by the General Court after speaking out against the right of civil authorities to punish religious dissension. Williams established a settlement called Providence in Rhode Island, open to those seeking freedom of conscience. On Oct. 6, 1866, in Indiana, the Reno Gang carries out the first robbery of a moving train, making off with $10,000. This new method of sticking up moving trains in remote locations low on law enforcement soon became popular in the American West. On Oct. 3, 1917, the U.S. Congress passes the War Revenue Act, increasing income taxes to raise money for the war effort. A graduated tax system was introduced, with rates starting at 1 percent and rising to 7 percent for taxpayers with income above $500,000. On Oct. 4, 1927, sculpting begins on the granite images of presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. Jeffersons image was originally fashioned to the right of Washington. Within two years, the face was badly cracked and workers blasted the sculpture off the mountain. Sculpting began again with Jefferson on the left side of Washington. On Oct. 5, 1947, President Harry Truman makes the first televised presidential address, asking Americans to cut back on food to help starving Europeans. He requested that the public voluntarily forgo meat on Tuesdays, eggs and poultry on Thursdays and to save a slice of bread each day. On Oct. 7, 1960, the first episode of the one-hour television drama Route 66 airs. The show followed two young men, Buz Murdock and Tod Stiles, as they drove across the country in a Corvette convertible, doing odd jobs and looking for adventure. On Oct. 8, 1970, the best-known living Russian writer, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, wins the Nobel Prize for literature. The Soviet government demonstrated its displeasure by preventing him from personally accepting the award. Solzhenitsyns works had to be secreted out of Russia in order to be published. It was noted American wit Groucho Marx who made the following sage observation: Theres one way to find out if a man is honest -ask him. If he says Yes, you know he is a crook. When the city of Los Angeles was founded, it was given the name El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora de los Angeles de Porciuncula, which translates to The Town of Our Lady of the Angels of Porciuncula. Back then, in 1781, there were just 52 settlerscontinued on page 33 THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE

PAGE 33

33 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 2011 From page 32Strange But Trueto start what is now the second most populous city in the country. When speaking of dead languages, Latin is the one that probably comes to mind most often. Its not quite dead, though; its the official language of Vatican City. Those who keep track of such things say that a professional ballet dancer goes through about 130 pairs of toe shoes in a single year. The yo-yo became popular in the United States after it was marketed by Donald F. Duncan Sr., a businessman from Chicago, but he didnt invent the toy. In 1928, Duncan was on a business trip to San Francisco when he saw Philippine immigrant Pedro Flores, who had gotten financing to manufacture the yoyos and had trademarked the name, demonstrating how to use the toy. Duncan realized that the toy had the potential to be a huge success, so he paid Flores $5,000 for all the rights. Incidentally, the name yo-yo means come-come in the native language of the Philippines. If youre like the average American, showers account for nearly one-third of your home water use. Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae. -Kurt Vonnegut Jr. THOUGHT FOR THE DAYPoetic Voicesselected by Don BrownOn Golden Pondby Raymond BuckA handsome lake not a measly pond such classic blue surrounded by lofty white pine green my daughter sits at the end of her dock looking across her waters past the great green island to the towering heights of Osceola and Tecumseh mountains in the distance to a red shore-side home and adjacent boat house where (it is said locally) the film On Golden Pond was shot on location with Katherine Hepburn and Henry Fonda actors aged and seasoned enough for a lake aged and seasoned diminished by calling it a pond my daughter with toes in the lake thinks more about canvasbacks seven of them diving popping out recalling loon calls of the night savoring the caress of mountain waters gift of the heavy snows of winter thinking about the son who has left the serenity of waters blue green where the day before he sat in sun with his guitar practicing for gigs in the music venues of London under siege by unhappy youth far from the pleasures of a pond not golden except for locals who find their gold in tourism. Raymond Bucks first book of poems, South of Providence, was published in 2009. A member of a Sanibel writing group, he reads his poetry at Writers Reads and whenever anyone asks. He also writes for and about the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village on Sanibel Island.

How wrong they were. This week begins the 14th season for the Florida Everblades when they host the Chicago Express, an ECHL expansion team, in a pair of pre-season tuneups tonight, Friday, and tomorrow night at Germain Arena. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. The 13-year history of the Everblades is indeed amazing as every season has been a winning season, although Florida has yet to capture the Kelly Cup league championship. They begin the 2011-12 season with an overall record of 539-295-94. Twice, 1999-2000, and 2008-09, they recorded the league-best regular season records, 53-15-2, and 49-17-8 respectively, yet that elusive Kelly Cup title didnt come their way as the result of playoff losses. The Everblades have been successful all these years not only by playing winning hockey but also attracting a large fan base. Last season, for example, the Everblades drew 187,526 fans in 36 home games, fourth highest among the 20 teams in the ECHL. Returning for his second year as the Everblades head coach is Greg Poss, who guided the local team to their 13th consecutive playoff with a 37-30-5 record. The 46-year-old Wisconsin native has an extensive coaching resume, coming here after eight years as head coach in the German Elite League. The ECHL (it stands for East Coast Hockey League but no longer uses that full title) is somewhat a misnomer as the league stretches from Florida to New York to California to Alaska and Canada.

ANSWERS PGA TipsTry A Belly Putterby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalPutting can be the most frustrating part of the game. Nothing makes me more mad than to hit a great shot right next to the hole and them miss a three-foot putt that counts as much as a 300-yard drive. If you have watched the PGA Tour on TV lately, you have noticed a new trend in putters called a belly putter. This trend is so hot that at one point this summer a belly putter won six weeks in a row on tour. So hot in fact that we will be bringing in two models of belly putter into The Dunes Golf Shop this coming season for purchase by the members. Here is what a belly putter is and what it does: 1. Length: The standard length normal putter is about 35 inches. A belly putter is about 42 to 48 inches long. 2. Grip: With the normal putter you grip it at the top end. With a belly putter you grip it down approximately a foot, then the top end sticks into your belly button. 3. Swing: With a standard putter your arms hang down until you can reach the top end of the putter and you swing the top end of the putter back and through. With a belly putter the top end is sticking into your belly button so you grip down until your arms hang naturally and rotate your belly button back and through and the putter follows that motion. 4. Results: For most people, anchoring the top end to the belly button eliminates hand action and promotes a smooth back and through swing. With any putter we want the backswing and follow through to be the same length and speed. With normal putters we tend to see a long, quick backswing and a short, slow follow through that tends to decelerate at the ball and cause the yips. Stop by and have one of our PGA professionals explain the ways to use a belly putter and by November 1 we will have some in the shop you can try out. From page 34Everbladesseason an additional 11 teams are slated to join, Florida being one of them. The local team is owned by businessman Andrew Haines. Scott Chadwick will serve as general manager. The Florida Firecats played here for eight seasons, 2001-08, as members of the now-defunct arenafootbal2 league. Financial problems resulted in the shutdown of the team about year before the entire league went out of business. Prior to its failure, the Firecats enjoyed mild success both on the field and in attendance so there should be a solid fan base for arena football when it resumes here next year. The fledgling team recently held open tryouts and more than 50 football hopefuls came out to compete for the 23 roster slots. We will have further information on this new team as the 2012 season approaches.

SHOP & COMPARE SHOP & COMPAREFast Free Delivery* Guaranteed Satisfaction Competitive Pricing Honest & Reliable*Min $500.00 purchase A few months after the death of her mother, Janice continued to manage her mothers trust as if she were still alive. Mom used to give each of my kids $13,000 a year which is tax free so I thought I would continue that. The problem is that once someone dies, the provisions that say who is to get what from the trust following the grantors death is what should take place. Any gifts that the grantor used to make during her lifetime should longer continue. To do otherwise invites a challenge by the rightful beneficiaries and likely personal liability on the part of the person who is making the improper gifts. Lets say, for example, that Moms trust in this case is supposed to be divided equally between Janice and her sister Karen. But Janice continues to make the $13,000 gifts to her children that her mother would have made at Christmas. Since Janice is acting as the trustee, she could choose to treat those as gifts from herself to her children and charge them against her share alone. She certainly shouldnt reduce Karens share by those gifts. The same holds true when paying for travel expenses related to the last illness or funeral. If Janice pays money out of her mothers trust for her children to fly down to visit with their grandmother before her passing, or to later attend her funeral, these are not valid expenses of the administration. The only person whose travel expenses should rightfully be paid by the trust is any named trustee (Janice) or personal representative (executor) for the estate. Another mistake that people commonly make after the grantors death is when they continue to use the durable power of attorney. The word durable in the description of the power of attorney simply means that the power of attorney survives the grantors incapacity. No durable power of attorney survives the grantor. When the grantor dies so does her durable power of attorney. So if expenses need to be paid or if checks need to be written then those monies should be paid by the estate or trust by the personal representative and/or the trustee not by the holder of the durable power of attorney. When the estate doesnt have a whole lot of money and it is questionable whether the assets will even cover all of the deceaseds bills and expenses, it is very important that the personal representative follow proper protocol before making any payments or the personal representative might find themselves personally liable for improper payments. I can explain this best by example. Suppose that Dad dies with $10,000 of credit card debt, $17,000 of medical expenses, a mortgage in the amount of $120,000 and assets other than the home, the total value of which is $50,000? Which bills, if any, should the personal representative pay? Thats actually a trickier question than you might imagine. Florida law provides that all known and reasonably ascertainable creditors should receive a notice of creditors during the estate administration. Assuming that they all properly file a claim against the estate, if the estate assets are insufficient to pay all of the claims, then Florida law prioritizes the claims as to which should be paid before others. Secured claims, like the mortgage against the home, usually cant be discharged in an estate proceeding while credit card debt may be. It all depends upon how the law prioritizes the claims. Moreover, other fees and expenses, such as those associated with probating the estate usually have first priority. The reason for this is that estates with more creditors than assets would not be able to get representation if the legal fees and costs didnt have priority. If the personal representative ignores the process and the legal priority, then she is likely to be personally liable for improper payments and may have to reimburse the estate from her own funds. So if you are managing someones financial affairs during their lifetime or thereafter, it is always important to consult your estate attorney before making gifts or paying expenses. If you inadvertently make payments or transfers other than what the law allows, you could find yourself having to reimburse the estate from your own funds. Craig R. Hersch.

Motor is louder than normal: When you hear a screaming or screeching noise it often means that there is a significant problem with your motor. This tends to indicate that the bearings are failing, and the motor will likely need to be replaced. If your motor is making more of a grinding or chopping noise the problem may tend to be a cavitation issue. Cavitation is a condition caused by starving the pump for water. If caught quickly, it usually will not cause any permanent damage. Check to make sure that the pump is getting proper flow. Look at your water supply and water level, and check all baskets for debris. If there is no blockage, try opening more valves to allow more water to flow into the pump. Motor will not start: Check to make sure that the power is on. Have a licensed contractor safely trace the power supply from the pump to the time clock, and then to the breaker making sure nothing has been tripped, all switches are in the correct position, and the time clock is set properly. A contractor should look at all electrical connections, making sure there is no sign of corrosion or animal destruction, and checking to make sure all junctions are connected properly. If unable to find any electrical issues, there is a good chance that your motor has failed and will need to be replaced. While this article is meant to help guide you through some of the most common pump problems, we urge you to contact a pool and spa professional if you are ever unable to make a clear diagnosis. Also, the state mandates always hiring a certified contractor for equipment repair or replacement. Please remember that you should never leave a disabled pump or heater connected to a power supply as this can cause a fire hazard. David Liebetrau is a licensed pool contractor on Sanibel.

As always, the islands spring back into action in preparation for another winter season. The first winter residents should be arriving any day now and before long well be seeing their familiar faces around the islands. Were all hoping that cooler weather is not far behind. For those who have been gone all summer, and the rest of us, Id like to give readers a heads-up of a popular community event thats just three weeks away, the annual Baileyfest. Save the date, Sunday, October 23 from 1 to 4 p.m., at Baileys General Store. This years entertainment line-up is exceptional. Country Rhythm Cloggers, who have performed at Dollywood and Disney World among many other top venues, will do two performances. These girls range in age from three to 25 years and are from LaBelle. Vocalist Frank Torino will be performing Frank Sinatra and Tom Jones tribute songs as well as acting as DJ for the afternoon. Torino performs at several Southwest Florida locations. Other entertainment includes performances by Jennifer Valiquette on sax, The Sanibel School Band and Kellyn Celtic Arts Irish Dance Academy. Incidentally, Baileys Hardware Store is stocking up for the winter season and already has a selection of As Seen on TV items, with lots more coming soon. Ill be reporting more on this later when the bulk of it is on the shelves. However, do check out two other products. The Micro Egg makes a perfect boiled egg (without the shell) in the microwave in 30 to 50 seconds depending on whether you want it softor hard-boiled. This little blue egg-shaped device is $7.75. I also spotted some quality tea towels in honeycomb cotton with island motifs such as turtles, seahorses and seashells ($10.95). Several businesses that typically close for several weeks in late summer and getting ready to reopen or have already done so. Joan and Jen Chiaramonte, owners of Why Knot in The Village Shops, are back from their summer buying spree with all new womens casual clothing and will reopen on Monday, October 3. To close out last seasons merchandise, they will slash prices of everything left in the sale room to $10, regardless of the original price. In addition, there will be a rack of items with 50 to 70 percent off. As for fall fashions at Why Knot, the Chiaramontes say to expect feminine, classic, really wearable clothing with lots of vests, tunics and leggings. Narrow jeans are still in style. Youll also see new sweater and dress lines exclusive to Why Knot as well as a traveler-friendly collection from FLAX featuring great new fabrics. Also after a summer hiatus, Traders Store & Caf reopens Tuesday, October 4. Over Easy Caf on Tarpon Bay Road and its sister store Island Paws, reopened last week. The Sanibel Bean reopens at 7 a.m. on Monday after closing for refurbishing. Country Rhythm Cloggers will be among the entertainers at Baileyfest on Sunday, October 23

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 201142 Superior InteriorsCenter Stage Ceilingsby Jeanie TinchWhile the general belief is that all ceilings should be painted white, its simply not true! There is simply no reason why a ceiling cant take center stage in your room. After all, its the fifth wall in every room. Ceilings do affect us. While a soaring ceiling in a spacious room raises our spirits, in a small room, it can be disconcerting. Some people feel low ceilings cause feelings of heaviness. And to other people a low ceiling gives them a cozy and inviting feel. If you want your ceiling to appear higher, then using a lighter tone color than your walls will do the trick. And conversely, if you wish your ceiling to appear a bit darker and more dramatic, your color selection should be a bit darker than your wall color. Two more excellent ceiling options are wall covering and texturizing. The right wall covering pattern would add just that touch of visual interest to your ceiling. Perhaps a mural design on your ceiling would add more drama and excitement to your room. And texturizing your ceiling with a decorative paint treatment will be sure to add another dazzling dimension to your room. Whatever you try, dont forget the fifth wall your ceiling and have some design fun making them center stage. Jeanie Tinch is an interior decorator on Sanibel. She can be reached at jeanie@decden.net. Ceiling Fans Are Not Just For Coolingby Bryan HayesHeres a handy tip that has to do with your ceiling fans. Many of you probably already know that the little switch on the device itself allows you to change the direction of air flow. Some fancier new models even come with remotes that allow you to switch the fans rotation with a mere push of a button. Even though we commonly think of ceiling fans as only useful during hot summer months, they are also quite handy in the winter and will help keep the warm air flowing through the room. And, they have been known to help with keeping your energy costs down saving just a few bucks each month will add up over the course of the year. The ceiling fans rotation should be set to reverse in the winter. We all know that warm air rises, so switching the fans rotation will help recirculate the air that is trapped at the top back toward the bottom. You also want to make sure that the fan speed is set to low, because you dont want it to blow the air too hard and chill you instead of helping you circulate the warm air. When you are cooling your home, you want the fan set so the air blows down. When you are heating your home, you want the air to blow up. 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.

43 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 2011Are We There Yet?by Dr. Dave HepburnAre we there yet? Nope. Are we there yet? Nope. Are we...? Nope. ...There? Nope. Dad, why do they call the place were going to the Petrified Forest? Well you remember that dark shadow that snaked across your bedroom wall and then slunk under your bed. You could hear it as it sharpened its knife and teeth... Im not going! Fine. You can stay here in the car tonight... by yourself. I hate you. Ya... well. And so another harmonious Hepburn family vacation found us in northern California slinkerfying into the Petrified Forest. Got me to thinking, that as doctors, our job truly is to petrify you, not by wearing my new argyle socks with sandals and Bermuda shorts, which apparently isnt all that attractive, but to petrify you into petrifying yourself. Nineteenth century Luther Burbank was in California checking out surfer chicks and Johnny Carson when he made a side trip to the Petrified Forest. He figured out that a volcano exploded so violently a kazillion years ago, that it hurled down giant redwoods like matchsticks and worse yet, broke several beer bottles. The ash then covered the trees. As the tree fibres decomposed, water, laden with silicates in that ash, seeped down into the gaps, replacing the wood cell by cell with crystalized silica until the entire tree became stone. If only we could do that with our bones. Your bones need to be rock hard and if we have to petrify you into doing this, so be it. Here, let me petrify you with these osteoporotic facts: 23 percent of patients who fracture a hip are dead in less than a year. 30,000 Canadian hips fracture every year, a hip snaps every 17 minutes 1 in 4 women and at least 1 in 8 men over 50 have osteoporosis. Hip fractures related to osteoporosis end up in death in up to 30 percent of cases! (Actually 100 percent of those with hip fractures will eventually die.) Osteoporotic hip fractures consume more hospital bed days than stroke, diabetes, or heart attack. Only 44 percent of people discharged from the hospital for a hip fracture return home. A 50-year-old woman has a 40% chance of developing hip, vertebral or wrist fractures during her lifetime. My sons hockey bag has been labelled a biohazard. The lifetime risk of hip fracture is greater (1 in 6) than the 1 in 9 lifetime continued on page 47 A Hi g her S tandard...

In addition, visitors can also view a four-engine, completely restored DC-7B that was delivered to Eastern Airlines in 1958 and was one of the last commercial piston-engine planes built before the advent of the jet age. Other attractions will include experimental, antique and general aviation aircraft exhibits, airplane and helicopter rides, childrens activities including a giant slide and bounce houses, WGCU Untold Stories about aviation history in Southwest Florida, character appearances, clowns, face painting, demonstrations by airport police and fire departments, and refreshments. Aviation Day 2010 attracted more than 6,000 visitors so this event provides excellent exposure for exhibitors. Exhibitor/sales booth space is free and will be housed under a large tent. The Port Authority will provide a table and two chairs for each participant under the tent and will work with individual vendors based on requirements and space.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 201146 Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. 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 have been living in an assisted living complex for four years. The financial planner said that with my income I would be fine well Im not! The value of my estate has taken a nosedive and I cannot afford to stay here. The nice financial planner has long gone and the facility hasnt helped me and they only say that I will have to leave in two months. I do not know what to do now. Do you have any suggestions? Hazel Dear Hazel, I am very sorry that the community will not work with you. The communities I work with try various solutions ranging from reducing the size of the apartment, offering some rent reduction, to arranging companion rooms. These communities also assist with placement if a reasonable arrangement cannot be worked out. I suggest you contact your local ombudsman to discuss your situation and possible solutions. The ombudsman is a third-party advocate and would be able to provide support and direction for you. Pryce Dear Hazel, I am sorry to hear that you are in financial crisis. Pryce has given you some very valuable up-to-date information, as she is working on a daily basis with people experiencing similar situations. I would suggest that you seek the advice of an older, very experienced financial planner who may have seen a similar situation with other people not unlike the circumstances you are in. Retirement complexes are also feeling the effects of this downturn and they dont want their residents to leave. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com. Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Is it true that if you have a problem, you can ask for it to be resolved in a dream?A: Yes, you can ask for a resolution because when you are asleep, your brain is free of mental inhibitions that hamper creativity during the day; you are more likely to think of new, fresh ways to resolve issues in daily life. Here are some suggestions: 1. Choose what issue you would like to dream about and resolve. 2. Turn it into a question, such as, why am I arguing so much with my spouse? Write it down and keep it on your night stand by your bed. 3. Repeat the question to yourself silently as you fall asleep. If your mind begins to wander, refocus and return to the question. 4. When you awaken, write down as much of your dream as you remember. If you awaken before you get up in the morning, still write it down so you dont forget it. It may or may not make a lot of sense, but you will eventually be able to put the puzzle pieces together. 5. Once you have the dream on paper, ask yourself if any part of the dream sheds some light on the issue. 6. Dont over-analyze your dreams as that will only complicate it. Keep it simple and you will be able to understand the root of your issue and resolve it relatively quickly. Dreams are symbols and can be very helpful in assisting you with resolving your daily issues. 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.

47 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 30, 2011deaRPharmacistPotassium Perfects Blood Pressureby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I have high blood pressure but Im not willing to start medication yet. Its only borderline high and I dont have insurance. If you had to pick only one vitamin, what would you suggest? MG, Ocala, Florida If Im pinned to just one vitamin, I pick potassium. Its inexpensive, sold over-the-counter at pharmacies nationwide, and well-documented to help regulate blood pressure. There are medications like Micro-K and Klor-Con available by prescription. Potassium lives in all of our cells, and you need it to move your muscles and make your heart beat in perfect rhythm. Without enough potassium on board, your muscles will cramp (and remember, your heart is a muscle). Potassium seems to protect the brain from ischemic injury (like a stroke). The scary part to me is that there are dozens of drug muggers of potassium, including certain types of diuretics, heartburn medications, laxatives, insulin therapy and corticosteroid drugs. More classes of medications are listed in my Drug Muggers book. I cannot overestimate the importance of restoring nutrients that get depleted by medications, for this is your side effect solution! Most physicians are aware of the need to reestablish potassium levels after ordering a diuretic drug so patients are commonly told to replace potassium with a banana. FYI, one cup of papaya or french green beans has much higher amounts of natural potassium compared to one banana, a fruit that is high in sugar and prone to fungal disease at the plantation. Potassium can be depleted from the body by intense workouts (think hot yoga), any kind of dehydration, vomiting, chronic or severe diarrhea and alcoholism. If you want to know your blood levels, physicians offer a blood test to evaluate this and other electrolytes. Potassium works with its brother sodium and the two together help control your bodys water balance, which in turn regulates blood pressure. Potassium has a cumulative effect and this makes it better to take a regular dose for two or three months, rather than to take large doses for short periods of time. Never take more than your doctor recommends and be careful because potassium interacts with certain diuretics and blood pressure drugs that are potassium-sparing. Studies consistently support potassium in the regulation of blood pressure. Research has shown that adults (and animals) with high blood pressure, who are given supplemental potassium often show a drop in systolic and/or diastolic pressure by up to 12 mm Hg (sometimes more depending on the study). Animals prone to stroke also showed benefit from potassium in at least one study. Only two percent of the rats who were potassium-supplemented suffered a stroke, compared to 83 percent of the untreated group. When supplementing with potassium tablets, drink plenty of water and eat a snack because this helps ease the mineral into your body gently, while minimizing GI discomfort.DID YOU KNOW:People with fibromyalgia often have low cortisol, and yoga helps normalize cortisol levels, while reducing pain.

Osteoporosis, a pediatric disease with geriatric consequences, the infamous silent thief, is a disease so debilitating and common that pharmaceutical companies focus a forest load of research into fixing it. The latest weapon in the battle of the bones is the discovery of something called a RANK ligand (discovered in my sons hockey bag) which turns an immature osteoclast into a mature osteoclast. Were not crazy about mature osteoclasts as they are the little devils that dissolve bone. A new medication, Prolia, reduces RANK ligands and hence osteoclasts remain immature, much like my mothers only son. I dont have to remind anyone who has watched family members shrink, hunch over, break their backs, snap their hips and live in pain, that anything that helps in the battle against a horrific and dangerous disease like osteoporosis is a Godsend.

The clinic is primarily for uninsured and underinsured patients and is run in collaboration with the United Way. The medical practice occupies space that previously housed Lee Memorial Convenient Care at 13279 North Cleveland Avenue. Services offered include adult primary care, diabetes management, asthma, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lab services, x-rays and other diagnostic testing. Lee Memorial Health Systems electronic health records system is operational at the clinic and will be helpful in coordinating care between the clinic, emergency department and hospitals. The office is staffed by a nurse practitioner, working under the direction of a physician, along with a medical assistant and several staff members in support roles. By placing the office in a central community location, Lee Physician Group is bringing health services to areas where the need is greatest. The clinic focus is on preventive care. Area residents are encouraged to establish a relationship with the medical staff at the clinic and to seek treatment for their health care problems before they become catastrophic. Our mission is to provide the right care at the right place at the right time, says Dr. Avra Bowers, medical director of Lee Physician Group. Sharing space with United Way agencies creates a synergy between the medical and social service needs of area residents. Referral services are coordinated by the Salvation Army, which serves as the lead agency at the clinic, connecting patients with partnering agencies through United Ways 211 information service. We introduced this clinic/agency model at the Lee Physician Group Dunbar United Way House earlier this year, and have met with tremendous success, says Cliff Smith, president of the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades. The opportunity to meet the needs of the community, both medical and social, in one convenient location is a wonderful benefit for the community. A sliding fee scale is available for patients without insurance. Those who have Medicare or commercial insurance are encouraged to schedule appointments at the Lee Physician Group office at 1682 NE Pine Island Road in Cape Coral or to visit the Convenient Care office at Page Field in Fort Myers. Children will not be seen at this location. Pediatric cases are referred to Family Health Centers Downtown Family Medical & Dental Offices. Office hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Appointments are required, and same day appointments are available.
