Opens Herb Strauss Theater Season After its successful run in 2010, The Laboratory Theater of Floridas production of Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is being revived on Sanibel at the Herb Strauss Theater for eight nights only. Performances are October 27, 28, 29; and November 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Winner of the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play, Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is an American theater classic exploring the complexities of life and love through the lens of two couples of separate generations. This three-act play centers around a bitter and aging couple, George and Martha, for whom drinking becomes more than recreation when a younger couple, Nick and Honey, arrive for a dinner party. The hosts quickly drag their guests into a savage game of cat and mouse as they air out their personal grievances and years of resentment. The play is also the inspiration for the 1966 film adaptation in which Elizabeth Taylor earned her second Academy Award for Best Actress. continued on page 32More Sponsors For CECI Beach BallMore support is coming in for the Childrens Education Center of the Islands Beach Ball fundraiser, which will be held October 22 at The Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel.

Also, Dr. Daryl Donovan, senior pastor of the Sanibel Community Church, has authorized informing the congregation on the two Sundays leading up to SCCs annual Veterans Sunday Services (November 6), of the CARE Package Campaign and where and how his congregation can participate and help. Two local veterans organizations, The Lee Coast Military Officers of America Association (MOAA) and the Shell Point Veterans Club (SPVC), using the Internet, have also informed members of the progress of the CARE Package campaign and requested their members do their utmost in support of this cause. All Sanibelians, visitors, friends, and supporters of the CARE Package Campaign are invited to attend the Veterans Day Ceremony on November 11 at Sanibel City Hall, 800 Dunlop Road sponsored jointly by the City of Sanibel and MOAA Chairs will be provided.

5 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011Dancing With The Islands Stars Kickoff PartyThe secret is out. The Sanibel Community Association announced the contestants for this years Dancing with the Islands Stars at the annual kickoff party. Island stars Raynauld Bently, Nicole McHale, Katie Gardenia, Dr. Edward LaMotta, Phaidra McDermott, and Shara Weaver were introduced and paired up with professional dance instructors from the Fred Astaire Dance Studios in Fort Myers, where they will work on their ballroom dance routines from now until the January competition. The Community Houses major fundraiser is scheduled for January 28, with the dress rehearsal on the 27th. Judged not only on performance by a panel of judges, the dancers ability to get votes through fundraising money for The Community House also determines the final Islands Stars trophy winner. The second trophy, the Peoples Choice winner, will also be awarded by popular vote by the audience. The Sanctuary Golf Club provided the hors doeuvres for the kickoff party, which culminated in a champagne toast to thank all the stars, the professional dancers and the crew that creates such a stellar experience with lights, audio and video. Tickets for dancing with the Islands Stars will go on sale Monday, December 5. Each dancer has a limited number of tickets reserved for their own fundraising.

The main item on the regular meetings agenda was approval of Resolution 11-12 granting a conditional use permit to Sanibel Olive Oil Co. Criteria and requirements set forth at the commissions September 13 meeting have been met according to the report of Planning Director Jim Jordan and the commission unanimously granted the permit. The conditional permit expires on February 8 if the owner does not obtain the necessary development permit. Later, during the Land Development Code Review Subcommittee meeting, which is comprised of all seven members of the planning commission, Commissioner Chris Heidrick revisited the formula retail issue. It seems this definition of formula retail is ensnaring businesses that probably should not be included in that definition but fall into another category, Heidrick said. I would like to see us review the specific language that defines formula retail. Some other commissioners agreed. Thats probably worth a look, said Commissioner Chuck Ketteman. Do we really want to hamper small businesses that are not McDonalds, not Wal-Mart? Chairman Michael Valiquette added, We need to stimulate the small business community while staving off the larger formula retail. Heidrick illustrated his point with this example: Say a small boutique in Captiva now wants to open a store on Sanibel. As it stands now, that would make the store formula retail. Im not sure thats the kind of business we want to preclude from participating in our business community, Heidrick added. I want to be clear: Im not looking to open the doors to everybody. Jordan said he will write a report for the committee to review. It sounds like you think the definition (of formula retail) is too broad and captures too many businesses. In fact, the definition is even stricter than it is for formula restaurants, Jordan clarified. The formula restaurant rules were enacted first, after the McDonalds controversy galvanized the island. Then, when Mango Bay displaced all the mom and pop shops across from Jerrys with its 3,500-square-foot, tourist-oriented store, the formula retail rules were put in place. In other news, Jordan reported that Code Enforcement has been contacting businesses using vehicular signs in violation of city rules and has met with 100 percent compliance so far. Such vehicles can be parked during the day out of view of the public right-of-way if used for service or delivery purposes. After hours, they have to be parked off-site. Jordan said Code Enforcement actively patrols the street four to five times a day. If a vehicle never moves, its clearly not being used for deliveries, Jordan stated. The Sanibel Diamond truck parked in Jerrys lot, however, has a unique history giving it some immunity from these rules, according to Jordan. A past hearing examiner approved the truck parking in Jerrys lot after hours, although it is still supposed to park in the interior of the parking lot away from the driveways. Vehicles driving on public roads are not subject to any rules or restrictions. Theres nothing that can be done about that, Jordan concluded. The commission also discussed abandoned, unsafe, and unkempt houses. Jordan said the city has a draft ordinance prepared but part of it is not ready yet and requires the city attorneys attention. As it stands now, a structure has to be unsafe or unsightly for the city to take any action. The city has never maintained vacant lots but Jordan said, We have been able to handle this by dealing with property owners. Commissioner Phillip Marks pointed out that empty lots are often breeding grounds for invasive species, which are proliferating rapidly. Jordan has been asked to work on the ordinance and bring it back before the committee. San-Cap Road Shared Use Path From Pine Avenue To Blind PassConstruction work on the Sanibel-Captiva Road shared use path extension and road resurfacing from Pine Avenue to Blind Pass Bridge is continuing. Asphalt paving of the roadway and new shared use path will begin on Tuesday, October 11, and take approximately three days to complete. One-way traffic in this area will be maintained, but users of Sanibel-Captiva Road should plan on additional travel time when accessing or leaving the west end of Sanibel and/or Captiva. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained at all times. The city reminds the public to drive slowly and cautiously through the area when workers are present. This project has been awarded to Seaton Paving & Sitework Inc. in the amount of $80,196.80. All construction work is scheduled to be completed by November 3. Do not hesitate to contact the Public Works Department at 472-6397 with any questions regarding this project. Planning Commission Reviews Formula Retail, Vehicular Signs, Abandoned Houses

LANE Center Loses Friend by Andrew StansellThe Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education at Florida Gulf Coast University recently marked the loss of a great friend. On September 25, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Muta Maathai passed away in Nairobi, Kenya after a courageous battle with cancer. Wangari was a brave pioneer for environmental sustainability, the rights of women and girls, and democracy in Africa. She was the first woman in East Africa to earn a doctorate, and the first to serve as a professor. In 1977, she founded the Green Belt Movement, which has since planted over 45 million trees in her native Kenya and beyond. She served on the Earth Charter Drafting Committee and was an ambassador for the Earth Charter movement until her death. Throughout her adult life she relentlessly advocated for the rights of nature and the empowerment of people. The center had been honored by her June agreement to serve as its Distinguished International Advisor. Recently, she provided advice to Center Director Peter Blaze Corcoran on the centers strategic planning process. Corcoran had been privileged to participate in the strategic planning process for the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies located at the University of Nairobi. He recalled his time spent with Wangari saying, I was privileged to know Wangari since the launch of the Earth Charter in 2000. I was always humbled that she took an interest in the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education. Corcoran went on to say, She was a great inspiration; she taught me that nothing is achieved unless one makes a great effort. Wangari saw the great efforts made by the center in leading the transition towards a sustainable future. She had said of the center, Activities that devastate the environment and societies continue unabated. Today we are faced with a challenge that calls for a shift in our thinking, so that humanity stops threatening its life support system. We are called to assist the Earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own. The Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education at Florida Gulf Coast University is engaged in the shift to a sustainable future through its Earth Charter scholarly agenda. The centers work in environmental education and social education points toward a better world.The life work of Professor Wangari Maathai has changed the lives of millions across Earth. The center is greatly privileged to have had the opportunity to work with Wangari and will continue to honor her through its work.

11 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011 Scott and Gigi Martell, married in a small town in the Ethiopian countryside in October, 2010, had an American Wedding Saturday, October 8, 2011, at Sanibel Community Church. They were married by Pastor Daryl Donovan with friends and family in attendance, including Scotts daughter, Willow Martell, and her friend Nathan Cook, both from Portland, Oregon, and his brother and best man, Craig Martell, and friend, Randy Eckhardt, from Sarasota. Coming from Toronto, Canada were Gigis daughters, Athena and Betty Mekonnen. Gigi will head back to Ethiopia in two weeks to work with their project, Ethiopia Hope Village, while Scott will work in the USA for two months to share the orphan and vulnerable children project with Americans. A general informative presentation about Ethiopia is scheduled for the Sanibel Library the first week of January, with Scott flying home to Ethiopia on January 6. Ethiopia Hope Village was approved in April, 2011, launched in May, with the first orphans arriving in at a rental house in June. The five-year plan for the project includes caring for up to 24 double orphans and building a youth center with a childrens clinic, library and classes, sports fields, for up to 500 youth. The focus of the project is community-born, empowering, and self-sustainable over time. The children are the orphans, street children and those most at risk kids of Butajira, Ethiopia. A major element is developing income generating projects, such as a dairy farm, chicken ranch, bee hives, and vegetable garden, so that the project can become self-sustainable over time. Scott and Gigi are seeking $60,000 to build the first building in the village this year, and the residents of Butajira will be required to fund $10,000 in money, materials, and/or labor. In addition, the children need the safety of $1,000 a month for food and medical security, and to hire a nurse, manager, and childrens workers. The goal is that this $1,000 a month will be funded within Ethiopia by town members, and income projects, within 10 years.

Four baby skunks arrived at CROW from Fort Myers on August 1. The two males and two females were orphaned siblings. Its a safe bet their mom was hit by a car, said CROW Wildlife Rehabilitator Robin Bast. Weve had baby skunks before but we dont generally have a whole nursery full at one time. Baby care is a huge part of what we do at CROW. Joshua Fernandez of San Carlos Park found the foursome. A friend of mine just had a baby and during the time he was with the baby in the house, he could smell skunk, Hernandez explained. We tried to find where it was coming from and discovered one of the skunks was coming in and out at the front of the house. The skunk had made a hole on the side of my friends yard below some concrete. Little by little, the babies started peeking out of the hole in the ground. Hernandez and his friend at first kept returning the skunks to their hideaway assuming the mother would return to claim her brood. Soon we started to figure the mommy was scared away and we gathered the babies up, he said. Hernandez did some research and learned skunks have four to six babies at a time. In this case, three were together and one had separated from the group. He and his friend were determined to find the fourth and reunite the full litter. We found one baby down the road from the others one day after we discovered the three, Hernandez said. In the middle of the night we were searching for a baby skunk for six hours! When they found the last one, Hernandez said his girlfriend wanted to keep one but he told her that wasnt a good idea. Its actually against the law to keep a wild animal as a pet; to do so requires permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department. These animals are wild, and it is not in their best interest or in the finders best interest to keep them. Please call CROW, said Dr. Robin. Hernandez said he was aware of CROW from an experience he had a long time ago. I found a wild cat and my landlord wouldnt let me keep him, so I took him to CROW to make sure he would get a good home, he said. When the skunks arrived at the clinic, they weighed around 60 to 70 grams too small to be weaned from their mother but all four were very bright, alert, and responsive. They looked fairly healthy but were too young to be without mom, so we hand-raised them, said Bast. The tiny skunks were put in CROWs baby possum room because thats where cage space was available. They were old enough that we werent giving them milk formula, Bast said. They got soaked kitten chow mixed with scrambled eggs, fruit bits, and mouse bits. You can look for that omelet on the menu the next time you go out to breakfast! The CROW team basically just gave the skunks supportive care as they grew up not that it was easy. Theyre interesting as little ones, Bast said. They dont really have control over their ability to spray. It was interesting to watch as they attempted to gain control of that. You could tell they were trying to spray but werent actually doing anything. Theyre cute but temperamental, according to CROW staff. They have attitudes, said Bast. They dont want to go from one side of the cage to the other while youre cleaning. Theyre not easygoing babies. When the babies reached 200 grams in weight they were moved to an outside cage, the squirrel complex, which has a dirt bottom and wooden boxes to hide in kind of like a burrow, Bast explained. The siblings lived in that cage for a little longer than two weeks. At that point they were spraying defensively, still eating really well and climbing so we thought they could handle themselves, said Bast. She and CROW Fellow Russell Martin released the nearly full-grown skunks in Alva, where there are some very good skunk habitats, on September 20; they had been in CROWs care for a little more than seven continued on page 15 Their rescuers allowed time for the mother to return to her brood before they acted; thats smart It took six hours to gather up these four little orphans BOAT RENTALSFishing Cabbage KeyDolphin Watching Captains Available472-5800Jensens Marina Captiva Island Hours Hours 2499 Periwinkle Way 2499 Periwinkle Way395-1263 Corner of Tarpon Bay Rd Corner of Tarpon Bay Rd In front of Baileys Grocery In front of Baileys Grocery www.georgeandwendyscornergrill.com www.georgeandwendyscornergrill.com Only Island Only Island All Day All Day Happy Hour Happy Hour 11am-6pm 11am-6pm Live Live Entertainment Entertainment Fri And Sat Fri And Sat Night Night Sanibels Fun Sports Bar Weve Got Your Game!

15 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011 From page 14Skunkweeks. Based on that amount of time, the babies might have been as young as a couple of weeks old when they were found. It was a comical release by all accounts. The van was quite pungent, Bast laughed. They dont necessarily keep spraying but they have that odor around them and it gets attached to you. Post-release showers were definitely necessary, according to Bast. CROW Fellow Hilaire Sampson, who was primarily responsible for the babies indoor care along with the rest of the staff, got sprayed a couple of times. Thats when you know its time to move them outside, Bast said. Martin, who was the primary caregiver along with staff once the skunks were outdoors and also prepared them for release, never got sprayed and thus earned the nickname skunk whisperer. The animals personalities showed, as they often due, during the release. One of the skunks came out of the carrier really fast the brave one wandering around and exploring, climbing the trees right away, said Bast. The others were a little more timid but in five or 10 minutes, they headed off into the woods. Bast explained the four will probably go their own separate ways before long. Since they grew up together, though, its nice that they were released together and can keep an eye on each other initially, she concluded.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 201116 Still Time To Catch One Last Tarponby Capt. Matt MitchellWindy conditions and a few rainy mornings did not slow down the redfish bite. Good high water most days had the redfish eating throughout the entire length of the sound. Though no one area was really on fire, limits of redfish where the norm on every trip out this week. Though there are a lot of big schools of redfish working throughout the sound and around the passes, trying to find them and fish them during the windy choppy conditions was next to impossible this week. Although I did not get to fish the areas I wanted to due to the conditions, all in all it was a good week of fishing. All the redfish we caught this week came while working mangrove shorelines on the leeward side of the sound. The most consistent redfish bite came during the last few hours of the incoming tide while working the windblown side of mangrove shorelines. Both cut ladyfish chunks and cut pinfish skipped up under the trees caught fish from 18 to 28 inches. Water in the southern sound has been on the dirty side but even with the strong winds once you get north of Regla island the water was surprising clear. With steady northeast winds most of the week I have been staying comfortable and concentrating my efforts on the islands and shorelines on the Pine Island side of the sound. Some days to get on these redfish involves a lot of moving and working a whole shoreline to find that one sweet spot the fish are laid up in. Other days you pull right up on them then never find another one on the rest of the shoreline. Thats just the nature of redfish fishing against the mangroves, If you want to catch one last tarpon before its all over until the spring, keep your eyes open around feeding schools of ladyfish in the bay and around the feeding spanish mackerel along the beaches. Several times this week while catching ladyfish in the bait schools for cut bait I saw rolling tarpon. When conditions calm down again look for big dark clouds of glass minnows out along the beaches. These big schools of little baitfish will hold tarpon. Tarpon this time of year seem to feed much more freely than in the spring when the fish are here to mate and spawn. Tarpon right now are in the spanish mackerel and glass minnows for one reason and thats to eat hard and pack on weight before they migrate out of here. Some the most wide open tarpon bites I can ever remember have come in October and early November. Not only do these fish feed really hard, they have little to no boat and angler pressure on them. As soon as the first big cold front comes through, it will be all over. Live pinfish under a float or free lined shiners pitched into the bait schools where the tarpon are rolling will give you the best chance of a hookup. Just off the beach on Captiva is one of my favorite places this time of year to target these silver kings though bait pods and feedng ladyfish from Chino Island north to Mason Island always seems to have rolling tarpon in them too. Just about any place you find a lot of bait and feeding fish activity you could come across tarpon this next few weeks. Fall brings really big changes to our fishing not only do we get all the migratory species moving south through the area, snook begin there and move from the beaches and passes into the backcountry. October and November are big transition months for our fishing. Action can go either way depending on the arrival of our first big cold front. In some years past we have made it halfway through December until the arrival of that first front and the big slow down in fishing action. With temperatures on the water becoming more and more enjoyable by the day, get out and enjoy it while its still great fishing, Before we know it we will be shrimp fishing, hiding from the north wind in mangrove creeks and targeting the winter species of rat reds, sheepshead and trout while we count the months until spring arrives again.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.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 201118 Captiva Cruises To Resume Tour To The Tarpon Lodge And Calusa Heritage Trail On Pine IslandCaptiva Cruises newest expedition in its Discover Southwest Florida History tours will focus on the fishing cultures in Pine Island Sound, a story of fascinating characters and traditions. This cruise will depart from McCarthys Marina on Captiva and travel to Pineland on Pine Island. Along the way, passengers will get an up-close look at historic fish houses of Pine Island Sound and discuss commercial fishing and the fishing cultures from the indigenous Calusa, to Spanish Cuban Ranchos, to the Punta Gorda Fish Company and to the spectacular tarpon and sport fishing of today. The tour will be greeted at The Tarpon Lodge and passengers will be oriented to this spectacular location, the familyrun business and their tradition of fishing within Pine Island Sound and Charlotte Harbor. Passengers then will relax while enjoying the old Florida charm of the 1926 Tarpon Lodge where lunch will be served with waterfront views of the sound and its mangrove islands. After lunch, the group will walk to The Randell Research Center (RRC), located across the street from The Tarpon Lodge.

19 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011Sponsorships Needed For Field Trip Program At Shell Museum Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum Adopt-a-Class program gives Lee County youths a unique educational opportunity. Since the inception of the program in 2003, the shell museum has provided group tours and a one-of-a kind educational experience to thousands of children in Lee County. Adopt-a-Class creates the opportunity for 4th grade children, including those from disadvantaged neighborhoods, to tour the museum at no cost to the school. Lee County teachers who have participated in previous Adopt-a-Class programs report the field trip as the highlight of the school year for their 4th graders. While on the trip, students learn about mollusks, which are soft-bodied invertebrates that make their own shell. The museum visit consists of a 25-minute introductory film that covers mollusk anatomy, reproduction, locomotion, habitats, and how these creatures fit into the oceans food web. Students are then given four 15-minute guided tours which include a hands-on shell introduction in the learning laboratory, a game area shell identification matching game, the Great Hall of Shells tour, and the Live Tank program where students encounter live marine mollusks. The information given to 4th graders has been geared to match the science standards for biological sciences, reading and academic vocabulary building in the science content area. The shell museum is currently scheduling this academic years field trips for Lee County fourth grade students. However, due to continued cutbacks in Lee County school budgets, sponsorships from individuals and businesses are vital to the continuation of the program. With your support, Adopt-a-Class will once again be a highly successful educational outreach program for 2011-12. The cost for full sponsorship is $450, or co-sponsorship for $300. The full amount of your contribution is 100 percent tax deductible. If you would like to help sponsor the Adopt-a-Class program, contact Amanda Stirn at astirn@shellmuseum.org. For more information, contact Diane Thomas at dothomas@shellmuseum.org, or call the museum at 395-2233.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 201122 Plant SmartBushy Broom Grassby Gerri ReavesAlong the roadsides this time of year youll spot the silvery haze of bushy broom grass (Andropogon glomeratus) as it glimmers in the sunlight. The blue-green tint of the narrow leaf blades gives the native grass another common name, bushy bluestem. Perennial and clump-forming, it usually grows two to five feet tall in low-lying areas, such as marshes and swales, and is common throughout the state. One can only wonder why its not used more often as an ornamental grass in the home and commercial landscape, especially since this native is low-maintenance, self-seeding, and suitable for problematic damp spots. It also has soilstabilizing properties. The plants most noticeable characteristic, though, is the fluffy, broom-like plume that gives it a resemblance to the popular muhly grass. The inflorescences are comprised of several branches, each with five to 12 spikelets, whose bristles create the hairy appearance. As the flower heads age, the silver tones turn to copper. Bushy broom grass can be used in dried flower arrangements another reason to include it in home landscapes. Plant it in moist soil in full to partial sun, and then wait for the showy silver fluffs in the fall. Sources: plants.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.

SimonHe innocently says to her, I was over to your grandsons house, and his cupboard looked a little bare. There is a whirling, swooshing sound, grandma is out the door and on her way to the neighborhood super market, rescue juice pounding in her sometimes co-dependent corpuscles. Grandpa innocently yells out the alley, How about picking up some yogurt for me when youre dallying near the dairy case? She reels up to her full height, turns, a small sneer crosses her cute teeth, What do you think I am, your shopping servant? Grandpa gently closes the door, pulls out a 3 by 5 card and writes down the word Yogurt. He was planning on going out anyhow. Sidney B. Simon is Professor Emeritus, University of Massachusetts. His books on Values Clarification made him internationally famous, and took him to the Oprah show and got him on Phil Donahue. Simons book, Living And Loving In That Condo, was published in 2011. Its all about people in some mythical Florida condo, growing old, and sometimes with all their values clarified. This poem is from the book. On the island, Simon is active in The Island Writers, a member of Art Poems. Simon is a Theater Critic for The Islander, and he MCs the popular First Friday Stories For Grownups programs at the Sanibel Public Library. Finally, Simon was chosen as Literary Artist Of The Year 2011 at the Alliance for the Arts.

FGCU Students Help SCCF With Monofilament Madness On October 2, FGCU students involved with the student organization ECO-Action manned canoes donated by The Castaways to participate in Monofilament Madness for SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation). Their destination was an SCCF property called Albright Island in Blind Pass. Albright Island is a 14.7-acre mangrove island purchased from Princeton University in 1990. Fishing is prevalent around the Albright Island which is used as a bird roosting sight. After a morning on the water, the students, led by Katie Broomfield, returned with two shopping bags of monofilament line, a chair, a fishing rod, and many plastic cups. To participate in the upcoming Buck Key Monofilament Madness the last two weeks in October call Dee at 472-2329 or email dserage@sccf.org. Aerial of Albright Island on the bay side of Blind Pass Free Ding Day Gets Kids Excited About WildlifeSunday Family Fun Day kicks off the 22nd Annual Ding Darling Days at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on October 16. The refuge and Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) have planned a free day jam-packed with activities for all ages from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. New this year, starting at 11 a.m., children can meet and pose with the refuges three characters Blue Goose, Bagzilla, and Teddy Roosevelt. Plus there will be a surprise appearance from a fourth wellloved childrens character. The first 500 children to check in at 10:30 a.m. will receive a reusable Ding Days bag filled with goodies and perfect for trick-or-treating. Sundays highlights include free narrated Tarpon Bay Explorers (TBE) tram tours of the refuge; live snake, bat, and bald eagle presentations; a butterfly house; face-painting; a touch tank; cool nature crafts; and free hot dogs. We estimate the value of this free event to be around $72 per child, said Ding Days Committee Co-chair Ranger Toni Westland. But the value of family and nature bonding? Priceless.

Well take care of you!Corner of Periwinkle Way & Tarpon Bay Road472-1516 My Stars FOR WEEK OF OCTOBER 17, 2011ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Youre moving from a relatively stable situation to one that appears to be laced with perplexity. Be patient. Youll eventually get answers to help clear up the confusion around you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A vexing situation tempts you to rush to set it all straight. But its best to let things sort themselves out so that you can get a better picture of the challenge youre facing. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Financial matters could create some confusion, especially with a torrent of advice pouring in from several sources. Resist acting on emotion and wait for the facts to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That goal youve set is still in sight and is still in reach. Stay with the course that youre on. Making too many shifts in direction now could create another set of problems. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It might be time to confront a trouble-making associate and demand some answers. But be prepared for some surprises that could lead you to make a change in some long-standing plans. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Congratulations. Youre making great progress in sorting out all that confusion that kept you from making those important decisions. Youre on your way now. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A difficult experience begins to ease. Thats the good news. The not-so-good news is a possible complication that could prolong the problem awhile longer. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your self-confidence gets a much-needed big boost as you start to unsnarl that knotty financial problem. Expect some help from a surprising source. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Congratulations. Any lingering negative aftereffects from that not-so-pleasant workplace situation are all but gone. Its time now to focus on the positive. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your self-confidence grows stronger as you continue to take more control of your life. Arrange for some well-earned fun and relaxation with someone special. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) As usual, youve been concerned more about the needs of others than your own. You need to take time for yourself so that you can replenish all that spent energy. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Stronger planetary influences indicate a growing presence of people eager to help you navigate through the rough seas that might mark your career course. BORN THIS WEEK: You can balance emotion and logic, which gives you the ability to make choices that are more likely than not to prove successful.

31 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011 How Sweet It Is At Broadway Palmby Di SaggauSugar, the Some Like it Hot Musical is sweet and sassy with a cast that brings back fond memories of the classic 1959 movie featuring unforgettable performances by Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe. The stage version has basically the same story while adding more than a dozen songs. Two down-and-out musicians witness the St. V alentines Day Massacre and in order to elude the gangsters, hide by dragging their way into a touring allgirl band. They make a quick getaway from snowy Chicago to sun-drenched Miami Beach. Jerry and Joe, played respectively by Gabe Templin and Mike Dale, become Daphne and Josephine and gain the confidence of Sugar Kane (Lara Hayhurst), the sex goddess with an inferiority complex, who plays the ukelele when shes not falling for sax players. While these three actors are the key performers, they are joined by an outstanding supporting cast. All are talented and a delight to watch. The plot includes some great twists and throws in several quirky scenes that really make the show a hit. The tap dancing numbers are great fun. Who can resist tap dancing gangsters? The intricate dance routines are perfectly timed, including the rat-a-tat syncopation that gives the gangsters machine guns their firepower. As executed by Tommy Wallace, who is Chicago capo Spats Palazzo, the tap exits become one of the shows comic signatures. Templin and Dale are hilarious playing off each other with their intriguing slapstick. The fact that they arent very convincing, or pretty, as women, makes the show even funnier. Hayhurst as the vulnerable Sugar wins everyones heart. The scene-stealer award goes to a silly performance by Sir Osgood Fielding, a dirty old millionaire brilliantly played by Victor Legarreta. He has the voice and the pizzazz to carry it off perfectly. His group of naughty old millionaires dancing around on walkers has the audience in stitches. Kathi Osborne as Sweet Sue, the leader of the band and Adam Trummel as her harassed manager, and a wonderful ensemble, all make major contributions to the success of a real comedy with showstopping song and dance. If you want to begin the fall with a smile on your face, treat yourself to Sugar. Directed by Paul Bernier with original choreography by Brooke Robyn Dairman, Sugar plays through November 19 at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. Tickets can be reserved by calling 2784422, by visiting www.BroadwayPalm. com, or stop by the box office at 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 201134 Sanibel-Captiva KiwanisKiwanis Kornersubmitted by Eric PfeiferOne of our own, Tom Louwers, stepped us last week to give us an update on his favorite charity. Friends Who Care is a Sanibel-based group, organized to assist families and individuals during times of need. As we approach the holidays, the needs seem to increase, and the volunteers really start working full time to help many families on Sanibel. Friends Who Care started in 1983 acting on leads from the Sanibel Police Department when kids or elderly residents needed assistance to survive. The clients names are always kept confidential, but we were told that the number of people requiring assistance continues to grow during these tough economic times. The criteria to be eligible for assistance includes living or working on Sanibel. This time of year, the volunteers (many of whom include Kiwanians) can be seen delivering turkeys and Christmas gifts. Next time you see Santa looking a little disheveled, ask him about the upcoming spaghetti dinner! Louwers mentioned that one of the recipients of assistance asked how she could ever pay the organization back. He said that the philosophy of Friends Who Care is for the clients to, Help someone else down the road when you are able. Working closely with Friends Who Care is another local organization, FISH (Friends In Serve Here) was started in 1981 to lend a helping hand to those in need on Sanibel and Captiva. Their objective is to make a social investment in our community that assists our neighbors to live independently and with dignity in their homes. In addition to providing a food pantry for the clients, FISH will provide other services including transportation, health care referrals, hurricane preparation, and education from tutoring to tax planning. Bill Fellows is the current president of FISH and he gave us an excellent Power Point presentation showing the history of the organization and a summary of the services provided. In 2006, the number of clients serviced has grown from 136 to 950. The funding has increased proportionately with over 50 percent coming from individual donations and 36 percent from grants and organizations such as Kiwanis. Many of us offer our time helping FISH, and four Kiwanians currently sit on the board. This week, we were proud to make our annual donation to FISH so they can get prepared for the busy holiday season which is fast approaching. You will also see many of our members assisting you with the parking of your car as you arrive to race in the annual FISH 10K run this Saturday. They are expecting more than 500 runners again this year, so plan on getting there early. These types of events raise more than 10 percent of the necessary funds for FISH, so come out and help support the community. We hope to see you there.If you would like to be involved in helping local organizations such as FISH and Friends Who Care, you can get started by joining Kiwanis. Feel free to join us for a hot breakfast everyday Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m at The Dunes. We look forward to seeing you. Bill Fellows and Don Feiner Tom Louwers Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellSanibel-Captiva Rotary Club District Governor Denise Hearn announced at Friday mornings meeting a special opportunity that Rotary is extending to World War II Veterans. An invitation is being extended to WWII veterans for a no-cost oneday flight to the nations capital to visit the inspirational WWII memorial and other patriotic venues in Washington, D.C. This is our Rotary Districts way of saluting WWII veterans and thanking them for the service to our country. Call Shirley Jewell, 337-1099, and I will email or send information to you directly. Friday was also Rotary District 6960 Dictionary Day. Rotarians delivered our Rotary Student Dictionaries to the third-grade students at Sanibel School. Dictionary Day was designed to honor Rotary Internationals commitment toward encouraging the full potential of literacy around the world, the foundation of education. For the last few years, Sanibel-Captiva Rotary also has a team that hands out our student dictionaries to third-grade students at Fort Myers Beach Elementary. This is an uplifting experience for those who take part in this project. The students at both of these schools were excited to receive these books. Our Dictionary Day captains Alex Werner (Sanibel) and Adair Heath (Fort Myers Beach) do a great job challenging the kids to use their new dictionaries. It is an enjoyable time Islanders will see Rotarians out and about both on Saturday and Sunday this coming weekend. Rotarians are part of the great volunteer core that is working the FISH 10K RUN.

35 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011 Species Named After Shell Museum DirectorThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum Director Dr. Jos Leal has received another accolade, a shell species named in his honor. According to Dr. Emilio Garcia of Lafayette, Lousiana in the October 10, 2011, issue of the Belgian journal Novapex, a puzzling wentletrap, that can be found on Sanibel and other Gulf areas, will now be known as Epitonium leali. In the article, Dr. Garcia stated, (The species) is named after Dr. Jos H. Leal, director of The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, Sanibel, Florida, and editor of the prestigious malacological journal The Nautilus. This taxon honors him for his accomplishments in the field and for his willingness to help both personally and in his capacity as the director of The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum. Dr. Leal is thrilled by the honor. It is great to have that elusive species named after me; I am grateful to Dr. Garcia, he said. Having a wentletrap from Sanibel with my name makes it a very touching and meaningful tribute. The Epitonium leali, recently named after Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum Director Dr. Jos Leal Ben (eight years old) caught this 28-inch Red Drum Sunday, October 9 at the Sanibel Fishing Pier. As you can tell by the picture, he was mighty proud! A very happy Ben Arensman shows off his catch Fish Caught De-peppering North CaptivaSCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation) is recruiting volunteers to help de-pepper North Captiva Island. Gathering at Barnacle Phils Restaurant at 9:15 a.m., volunteers will rendezvous with staff from Cayo Costa State Park and SCCF to lay out a plan of attack for the invading Brazilian pepper. This noxious non-native plant has grown so aggressively so as to overtake gopher tortoise burrows and coco plum shrubs. Brazilian pepper is one tough plant to eliminate so it is necessary to have a multipronged approach to its eradication. Volunteers will be asked to use hand tools such as pruners and loppers while park staff will follow behind with chain saws. SCCF has established a North Captiva Conservation Fund for conservation and education work on North Captiva. The first money into the fund came from removing the dollar bills from the walls of the Barnacle Phils restaurant this past summer. There are two items of caution. Some people are allergic to Brazilian pepper which causes a rash much like poison ivy. Secondly, transportation to and from Barnacle Phils, located on the north shore in Safety Harbor on North Captiva Island, is the responsibility of the volunteers. North Captiva is a gorgeous 4.5-mile long bridgeless barrier island. This piece of paradise can only be publically accessed by boat. This is a great chance to get to know the island from the inside out and then take a plunge into the Gulf of Mexico. Bring your bathing suit and work gloves, dress in long pants, long sleeves and sensible shoes. Anyone willing to declare war on this green alien can contact Kristie Anders at SCCF, 472-2329 or email kanders@sccf.org.

Learn how during Fire Prevention Week, October 9 to 15 With more than 360,000 home fires reported in the United States in 2009, according to the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), your best defense is a good offense. This years campaign is: Its Fire Prevention Week Protect your Family from Fire!, and it focuses on preventing the leading causes of home fires -cooking, heating and electrical equipment, as well as candles and smoking materials. Additionally, it urges people to protect their homes and families with life-saving technology and planning. In 2009, 2,565 people died in home fires. Nearly all of these deaths could have been prevented by taking a few simple precautions like having working smoke alarms and a home fire escape plan, keeping things that can burn away from the stove and always turning off space heaters before going to bed. Fire is a dangerous opponent but by anticipating the hazards, you are much less likely to be one of the nearly 13,000 people injured in home fires each year. Here are some tips for protecting your home and family from fire: Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or portable space heater. Have a three-foot kid-free zone around open fires and space heaters. Replace or repair damaged or loose electrical cords. If you smoke, smoke outside and use deep, wide ashtrays on a sturdy table. Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid the use of candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep. Residents need to provide the best protection to keep their homes and families safe in the event of a fire. This can be achieved by developing an escape plan that you practice regularly and equipping homes with life-saving technologies like smoke alarms and home fire sprinklers. The following tips will help keep your family safe if there is a fire in your home: Install smoke alarms inside each bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home (including the basement). Interconnect all smoke alarms in the home so when one sounds, they all sound. Test smoke alarms at least monthly and replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old, or sooner if they do not respond when tested. Make sure everyone in your home knows how to respond if the smoke alarm sounds. Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible ways out. Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors. If you are building or remodeling your home, consider installing fire sprinklers.

If you are in need of invitations, boxed cards or stationary, we have that too!Book ReviewLincolns Menby Max FriedersdorfFor pure pleasure of reading, none of the new books appearing about Abraham Lincoln can compare with Lincolns Men, The President And His Private Secretaries by scholar and historian Daniel Mark Epstein. Two young Illinois journalists, John Nicolay and John Hay, both carefree bachelors, worked for the election of Lincoln in 1861. As a reward for their service, Linclon hired them as private secretaries to accompany him to Washington. Hay and Nicolay comprised the entirety of Lincolns staff except for Edward McManus, the Irish doorkeeper at the White House charged with keeping order among the hundreds of job seekers thronging the Executive Mansion to see the president each day. The two-man staff of Nicolay and Hay answered all of the presidents mail, handled the press, Congressional relations, political chores and organized all social events, a devilish task because of Mrs. Lincolns clashes with both the young Lincoln aides. What makes Lincolns Men such a great book is that both Hay and Nicolay lived on the second floor of the White House and were in constant contact with the president, accompanying him to Cabinet meetings, councils of war with his generals, night-long vigils awaiting battlefield news, and ultimately to Gettysburg for Lincolns immortal address. After the assassination, Nicolay and Hay both chose diplomatic careers in later administrations, but as close friends for life, they co-wrote a history of the Lincoln administration. Their personl reminiscenses, anecdotes, stories,recollectons and assessment of Lincoln as a friend and employer, as well as our greatest president, make for spell-binding literature. I have rarely seen him more serene and busy. He is managing this war, the draft, foreign relations, and planning. reconstruction of the Union, all at once. He rules the cabinet, and there is no cavil... the good of the country absolutely demands that he should be kept where he is until this thing is over. There is no man in the country so gentle and so firm. I believe the hand of God placed him where his is, Hay writes in his daily journal. There was much for a bright young man to learn in that time and place but no lesson more valuable than the one Hay was learning from Lincoln, who ignored insults and high-handedness from General McClellan, saying it was better at this time not to be making points of etiquette and personal dignity. No man resolved to make the most of himself can spare time for personal contention, Lincoln advised. Nicolay reports the only time he ever heard Lincoln curse in his presence was on the night of February 27, 1862, a week after Lincolns son Willie had died. Lincoln had just learned that McClellan had spent a fortune on a fleet of canal boats to take up to Harpers Ferry for use against the Rebels, but they were too large for the lift locks on the canal. Why in the hell didnt he measure first? the president cried when informed by Secretary of War Stanton. Lincons Men, By Daniel Mark Epstein.

Fort Myers To Attempt World Record For Largest Gathering Of ZombiesAccording to The Guinness Book of World Records, the largest gathering of zombies was held in Asbury Park, New Jersey on October 30, 2010, with 4,093 participants. At last years ZOMBICON in downtown Fort Myers, police estimated more than 10,000 people in attendance, unofficially shattering the current record. ZOMBICON organizers hope to make it official during this years event on October 15. The public is invited to join the zombie horde and help put Fort Myers on the World Map. Other cities have tried and failed. Brisbane, Australia; Seattle, Washington; and Dublin, Ireland have all claimed larger numbers, but have not, thus far satisfied Guinness stringent requirements. The rules state that all participants must be wearing zombie costumes or makeup, which (at the very least) must include white face, dark eyes and red color. All zombies must gather simultaneously within a designated area and remain there for a minimum of 10 minutes. This must be timed by two experienced timekeepers with stopwatches accurate to 0.01 seconds. Other forms of verification must be submitted including photos, video and official statements. ZOMBICON producer/director Janet Planit DeMarco said, For the other attempts, people gathered just to set the world record. We are going to try to pull this off right in the middle or our event. This poses a unique challenge for event organizers, who have devised the following plan to fulfill all requirements while maintaining the continuity of the event. All persons wearing zombie makeup will be registered for the world record attempt by signing in and receiving a wristband with a unique number. Registration will take place on October 15 from 5 p.m. until 8:45 p.m. at these locations: the main entrance (Main Strett and Hendry) the stage door entrance (Bay Street and Hendry), and the Kiss Me/Kill Me booth at the Patio de Leon. At 9 p.m. sharp, all registered zombies must report to The Red Zone (First Street between Broadway and Jackson). Members of the ZOMBICON Security Team (The Goon Squad) will facilitate the movement of all infected zombies into the quarantined area. All survivors (those not wearing zombie makeup) will be asked to step off of the street and onto the sidewalk. During the record attempt, survivors may seek refuge in the sanctuary of the Patio de Leon or in any of the local bars and restaurants. Once all zombies are contained within The Red Zone, the official timekeepers will mark the start of the world record attempt with a loud audible signal. All zombies must stay within the designated area for the duration. Some lucky zombies will be rewarded for their patience with ZOMBICON T-shirts and other gifts. Once 10 minutes has elapsed, a second signal will proclaim the end of the attempt, and the red tape will be cut, allowing the zombies to rejoin the living as the party continues. All documentation including media coverage and eyewitness accounts will then be submitted to Guinness for verification.

Dominique Bouhours, a Frenchman who lived in the 17th century, was a priest, an essayist and a grammarian. The love of language may have been closest to his heart, though; its been reported that the final words he uttered on his deathbed were, I am about to -or I am going to -die; either expression is used. The beaver is a rodent. If youre like the average adult, when youre sitting in a relaxed position, you inhale about one pint of air with every breath. The United States isnt the only country that has an accolade to recognize excellence in the film industry. Here the awards are known as the Oscars, but other nations have their own names for the awards: In Canada theyre known as Genies, in France theyre Cesars, in Russia theyre called Nikas, in Mexico theyre Golden Ariels, in Spain theyre known as Goyas, and in the United Kingdom theyre called Orange British Academy Film Awards. Those who study such things say that millions of trees are planted accidentally when absent-minded squirrels forget where they buried their nuts.

39 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011 A Captivating New Play At Theatre Conspiracyby Di SaggauInvasion of Privacy played to a full house opening night at Theatre Conspiracy and it was a huge hit. Florida playwright Larry Parr won this years New Play Contest at Theatre Conspiracy with his clever tale of a lawsuit filed against famous author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. The play opens on a clever note and continues to entertain. The time is 1946 and Rawlings, Pulitzer Prize winner for The Yearling, is being sued by her former friend and neighbor Zelma Cason for $100,000. Cason charges libel and invasion of her privacy. She objects to the way she is described in Rawlings book Cross Creek. The wording goes as follows, Zelma is an ageless spinster resembling an angry and efficient canary. She manages her orange grove and as much of the village and country as needs management or will submit to it. I cannot decide whether she should have been a man or a mother. She combines the more violent characteristics of both and those who ask for or accept her manifold ministrations think nothing of being cursed loudly at the very instant of being tenderly fed, clothed, nursed or guided through their troubles. Zelma tells Marjorie, You have made a hussy out of me. She wants $100,000 to soothe her hurt feelings. Joann Haley as Marjorie and Karen Goldberg as Zelma are perfectly cast in their roles. We see Rawlings vulnerability and discover her problem with alcohol. Her husband alludes to the bottle she keeps by her typewriter. Cason on the other hand is obviously jealous of her friends success and feeling offended that Rawlings has time to entertain the likes of Ernest Hemingway and Eleanor Roosevelt, but no time for her. Marjorie fires back saying that Zelma is about as literate as an earthworm.At one point Zelma is willing to settle for $8,000 but thats out of the question as far as Marjorie is concerned, so they end up going to court. The eyes of the world are on this trial because no other major American writer of the 20th century had ever been sued for invasion of privacy concerning an autobiographical work. Standing by Marjorie throughout the trial is her husband Norton Baskin (Rick Sebastian) and her attorney Sigsbee Scruggs (Stephen Hooper). Portraying Judge Murphree is Mike Breen. The prosecuting attorney Kate Walton (Tera Nicole Miller) is only 29. In spite of a zealous fight, she loses the case, but on appeal takes it to the Florida Supreme Court.Watching Zelma on the witness stand and listening to her rantings, one cant help but feel that Marjories description of her in the book is right on. During a talk-back with the playwright, Parr said he couldnt have asked for more colorful characters to work with on his play. He researched the actual trial records and condensed more than four years of legal proceedings into a two-act play that leaves the audience wanting to know more about the characters. I love it when that happens. The precedent-setting decision by the Florida Supreme Court resulted in Cason being awarded $1 and court costs. Although Rawlings won the fight, she was left greatly depressed and never again wrote about the people of Cross Creek. She died in 1953 in St. Augustine of a cerebral hemorrhage and bequeathed most of her property to the University of Florida in Gainesville. Her husband Norton survived her by 44 years. They are buried side-by-side at Antioch Cemetery near Island Grove, Florida. Rawlings tombstone bears the inscription, Through her writing she endeared herself to the people of the world. Invasion of Privacy is a show not to be missed. It plays through October 22 at Theatre Conspiracy, 10091 McGregor Boulevard, Alliance for the Arts. For tickets call 936-3239.

Dr. Mark W. Hullstrung is offering house calls on Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers for dogs and cats. Hullstrung said cats especially benefit from being examined and treated at home. They are often nervous wrecks when they get to the vets office, he said, and their blood pressure rises too. Hullstrung had his own practice in northern New Jersey. He and his family moved down here nearly seven years ago, having visited the islands for 20 years. His daughter Samantha, a high school senior who plans to attend veterinary school, acts as Hullstrungs assistant when he makes house calls. He has privileges at a local vets clinic in case a patient needs surgery or more than routine treatments, as well as connections with a veterinary pharmacy for prescriptions. You might be wondering how much more it costs to have the vet come to you.continued on page 2B Dr. Mark W.

But when you compare it with what you pay for a plumber or an electrician to come to your house, its not that much. The vet is also taking concierge clients, which means that for a retainer, he will be available on demand. Hullstrungs most famous client was former President Richard Nixon and thereby hangs a tale. Despite all the security at Nixons Saddle River property, a brown mutt snuck in under the fence. Nobody claimed him and so the Nixons adopted him and called him Brownie. Hullstrung took care of Brownie for several years. Call 244-1401 to speak to Hullstrung. If you havent checked out the latest in kitchens and bathrooms in recent years, give yourself a treat.

9B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011Al Davis Was A Football Legend Who Changed The Face Of The National Football Leagueby Ed FrankHe was cantankerous, he was obstinate, he was shrewd, outspoken but fiercely loyal to his players, past and present. And he changed the face of professional football as few have done. What Arnold Palmer did for golf and George Halas did in the founding days of the National Football League, Al Davis did in later years. His passing last week at the age of 82 leaves a void, not only in the management and ownership of his beloved Oakland Raiders, but in the NFL as well. As commissioner of the old American Football League, Davis was more responsible for the 1970 merger of the AFL and the NFL than anyone else, although he originally opposed the move. But as his AFL snatched player after player from the NFL, the blending of the two leagues became inevitable. Just win baby, was his famous motto. The silver and black of the Oakland Raiders with the one-eyed pirate on their helmets is as famous as any logo in sports. And, baby, did the Raiders win. From 1965 to 1980, the Raiders never had a losing season. In fact, that era marked the most successful record of any team in professional sports. During his nearly half-century as Raider boss, they won an AFL title in the 1960s, a Super Bowl in the 1970s, two more Super Bowls in the 1980s, got to the AFC title game in the 1990s and went to two AFC title games in the 2000s. The last several years were lean years for the Raiders as the losses piled up and one coach after another was fired. But even as his health declined, Davis insisted the team would turn it around. And he was right. On Sunday, the day after his death, the Raiders beat the first-place Houston Texans 25-20 to improve to 3-2 for the season, the first time they have been above .500 after five games since 2002. There was much more to Al Davis than just winning football games. Perhaps due to his Jewish background, he understood discrimination. In 1968, he drafted professional footballs first black quarterback, Eldridge Dickey, in the first round. He hired the first black coach, Art Shell, the first Mexican coach in Tom Flores, and the first female executive, Amy Trask, who remains in the organization as CEO. He often took chances on players others would ignore. The media labeled quarterback Jim Plunkett as washed up. Davis saw him differently and he led the Raiders to a Super Bowl championship. George Blanda was way too old for most, but not for Davis. The legendary Blanda quarterbacked and place-kicked for the Raiders until he was 48. Conversely, John Madden was only 32 when he was hired as head coach. Madden won several division titles and the 1976 Super Bowl for Davis. At age 34, he took Jon Gruden as head coach and led the Raiders to consecutive division titles before leaving for Tampa Bay. Writing this column brought back many great memories as an admitted Oakland Raider fan. While employed for Bethlehem Steel, I had been transferred to the Oakland area in 1969 and sought a couple of season tickets. There was a long waiting list for tickets, but a friend knew Davis and told him of my request. Apparently Davis was a Bethlehem stockholder and I got the tickets. Those were the Raider glory years with Daryl Lamonica, Ken Stabler, Jim Otto, Gene Upshaw, Blanda, Shell and many, many more. No question that Davis possessed a brilliant football mind. He oversaw every facet of the Raider organization, never hesitating to voice his opinions to coaches and players alike. And what a thorn he could be to the NFL hierarchy. He feuded and battled the NFL in court over moving his franchise to Los Angeles in 1982 and back to Oakland in 1985. Pro football has lost one of its most charismatic, colorful characters. But his legacy will always be linked to todays most popular sport.

Lily & Co. donated a necklace/earring set for the auction, and Lilys coowner Karen Bell grabbed hold of Mike Valiquettes arm and raised it every time auctioneer Jon Finstrom needed a higher bid, ultimately securing the prize for Valiquettes wife Maureen. Sandy Stilwell alerted the guests that Bell and fellow server Anne Joffe were celebrating their birthdays, and everyone in the dining room serenaded the pair with the traditional song. Museum director Dr. Jos H. Leal was pleased with the turnout, which included long-time museum friends as well as a few newcomers. I think the event was a great success by any measure, he said. We did as well if not better than last year. The fun quotient was very high. People really enjoyed themselves; I sure did. It was great to see a lot of new business owners in the community joining in as a breath of fresh air, and to see all the great people involved in the event. It was also great to be back at Traders and have the support from Traders and Lily & Co. as major sponsors, Dr. Leal added. There was a lot of help from Evelyn Stewart of Adventures in Paradise and our board of trustees treasurer Vasanta Senerat, so Im grateful for all theyve done. We had a nice team of local celebrity waiters and waitresses from the island community who were backed up by the great staff at Traders, so we couldnt have had a better event.

11B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011 On October 1, 2011 a new Durable Power of Attorney law took effect. Most people have Durable Power of Attorney documents as a part of their estate plan, so today I thought I would review some of the highlights of the new law. Most of us know what a Durable Power of Attorney is, although some may be confused when it is used and when one becomes invalid. A Durable Power of Attorney document allows you to name someone to effectively and legally sign for you for a variety of commercial and legal transactions. You can grant someone the power to buy, sell and transfer stocks, bonds, money, real estate and almost anything else you can think of. A Durable Power of Attorney can be used to grant someone else the authority to make gifts on your behalf, or even establish and fund trusts, including estate planning and/or Medicaid trusts. On your death, however, the Durable Power of Attorney document ceases. Then your will takes over. The durable in Durable Power of Attorney means that the powers you grant someone survive your incapacity. But the powers are not applicable after your death. In years past, the law allowed you to create a springing Durable Power of Attorney meaning that it could be drafted to only take effect upon your incapacity. The new law does not allow springing Durable Powers of Attorney, meaning that when you sign the document it becomes immediately effective. Practically speaking, springing Durable Powers of Attorney werent very useful, since the banks and financial firms that would have had to rely on them are wary of springing powers because the banks and financial firms dont want to be liable if the contingency that creates the power hasnt occurred yet. One of the more notable changes to the law includes the fact that a general grant of authority, such as I grant Joe the power to do anything that I could do is now insufficient for most actions. In other words, if you want Joe to be able to write checks from your bank accounts, he needs specific banking powers. If you want Joe to have the ability to sign a deed conveying real estate, then the document specifically needs to grant him that power. In fact, the law states that the authority to grant certain gifting or estate planning powers not only need to be included in the document, but each specific power needs to be initialed by the principal (you). This requirement applies to certain matters involving trusts, gifts, rights of survivorship, designation of beneficiaries, beneficial interests under annuities, disclaimers and powers of appointment. So if you want to give someone the power to change the beneficiary of your IRA, for example, not only must that actual authority be designated in the Durable Power of Attorney, but you need to initial right next to that specific power for it to be valid. Failure to have such specific powers inside of the document may render the document useless. Documents that were signed before October 1, 2011 are referred to in the statute as legacy documents and are supposed to remain valid even if they dont necessarily comply with the new law, however for all practical purposes they will be more difficult to use since the banks and brokerage houses, among others, are going to require a document that complies with the new law for the bank or brokerage house to honor it. The new law contains provisions that require banks and financial institutions to accept or reject a presented power of attorney within a certain amount of time. The new law also provides third parties who are relying on the validity of the power of attorney to be protected if it later turns out that the power of attorney was not valid for one reason or another but the third party had every reason to believe that the power was valid. What this new law is going to do is increase the complexity and length of Durable Powers of Attorney.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 201114B School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My 7th grade daughter has been in school now for almost two months and she does not seem to be adjusting very well. She should be used to school and the routine but she continues to be very anxious and nervous. She does not want to talk about it either. Any suggestions? Emily L., via e-mail, Estero, Florida Dear Emily, Feeling anxious for the first few days or even the first week or two of school is quite typical, but when that anxiety extends past those beginning weeks of school, it is time for parents to become much more involved as you are doing. Anxiety, the jitters, feeling high strung or nervous is a common feeling for everyone in every age group. Anxiety is normal and can even be helpful at times by alerting us to a variety of situations that we need to address. The central characteristic of anxiety is worry and when the worrying becomes problematic thats the indication that its time to take some action. You mentioned that your daughter does not want to discuss her feelings with you. She is showing you a classic symptom of anxiety in that pre-teens and teens tend to withdraw when they are anxious. Younger children however, act out more when they are anxious by showing anger or irritability. One clue that your child is anxious about school is their behavior on the weekend. If their anxiety is school related their demeanor tends to improve on Friday afternoons and Saturdays and then the anxiety will re-appear on Sunday evenings. Anxiety and depression can be linked sometimes, appearing together. According to Dr. Doyne, from Cincinnati Childrens Hospital, this is a gray area and it is not always easy to make a clear determination as to which condition the child is experiencing. He does state that depression is much more severe and children tend to appear more dysfunctional with depression. According to Dr. Huberty, a school psychologist, there are some specific actions a parent can take to help their child reduce their anxiety levels: To help with anxiety, teach your children how to organize materials and time, develop small scripts of what to do and say, either to peers or as self-talk, when anxiety increases. Practicing things such as asking questions in class or class presentations until a comfort level is achieved can be a useful anxiety-reducing activity. Listen to and talk with your child on a regular basis and avoid being critical. Being critical may increase pressure to be perfect, which may be contributing to the problem in the first place. Anxiety is a complex topic and cannot be fully addressed in this column. I recommend that you read Dr. Hubertys informative article for parents on anxiety in children to learn more about this topic and on ways to help your child. It can be accessed at www.nasponline.org/resources/intonline/anxiety_huberty.pdf Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

15B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011Community House Hosts Cancer LectureWorld-renowned cancer specialist, doctor and researcher will visit The Community House Tuesday, October 25 at 6:30 p.m. Dont miss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet Dr. Dana Flavin, executive director for the Foundation for Collaborative Medicine and Research (Collmed). Flavin will explain, in laymans terms, about the international research she has been directing toward the pioneering treatments in nanotechnology that will change the face of cancer therapies throughout the world forever. Only a handful of cancer experts are even aware of the incredible potential to find a cancer cure in the near future. A question-andanswer period will follow. Reservations are not required. Flavin has been successful in treating patients who are even in stage four of their cancers. Her passion is to save lives and her motto is, There is always a treatment; you just have to find it. Her success in medical research has been based on her belief that collaboration is the key to success and thats why her research institute, Collmed, collaborates with universities, hospitals, cancer centers, and other sites throughout the U.S. and more than 20 other countries. Our scientists and colleagues have already made, and will continue to make, significant progress against many forms of cancer, states Flavin. Flavin is recognized as the first doctor in the world to cure mononucleosis. She has been published in medical journals worldwide for her findings including advances in cancer, and autoimmune diseases [such as rheumatoid arthritis], viral diseases [such as herpes], autism, antiaging, and hair re-growth. Flavin, founder and executive director of The Foundation for Collaborative Medicine and Research, is regarded as a world-renowned leading cancer researcher and developer of targeted therapies for cancer including cervix, ovarian, colon, breast, acute myelogenous leukemia, and non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Her special interest at this time is in pioneering treatments in nanotechnology for cancer which she regards as a cure of the near future. In addition to cancer, Flavin has also developed targeted therapies for HPV, HIV, multiple sclerosis, and lupus. She holds patents for the treatment of viral hepatitis and rheumatoid arthritis. She is a consultant to pharmaceutical companies including Roche, Pfizer, Novartis, Bristol Myer Squibb, and Bionorica. Flavin is regularly published in peer-reviewed journals. Flavin also regularly presents her research to medical organizations and governmental agencies. She received her degree in psychology and chemistry from Loyola University in 1972 and then began graduate school in pharmacology at Chicago Medical School. After four years and part one of her medical boards, she was appointed science assistant to the Associate Bureau Director for Toxicology at the Food and Drug Administration in Washington D.C. During this time she researched the molecular biology of cancer and tumor promotion; investigating the application of translational medicine into potential therapies for cancer. Flavin then was appointed science advisor to the president of the Nutrition Foundation and began graduate studies at Howard University in nutrient biochemistry under the Department of Nutrition. Several years later with a summa cum laude in nutrition, she moved to Germany and began her studies in medicine for completion of her medical degree in Innsbruck, Austria.

17B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011Superior InteriorsFurniture Arranging Dos And DontsMany mistakes in furniture placement are made because its difficult for many people to visualize the threedimensional effect of furniture in advance. A floor plan is a necessary ingredient of furniture placement pre-planning, but you must also take into consideration the dimensional qualities of furniture as well. This is where a professional decorators expertise will save you time and money! DONT block a view from a picture window especially if its a good one. So placing tall chairs and a lamp on a table placed smack in the center of a picture window is a big no-no. Choice and placement of furniture should complement, not conflict with architectural features. DO plan a furniture grouping that wont conflict with your window. A sofa might fit below it, flanked by two end tables with lamps creating symmetrical furniture grouping and allowing your picture window to take center stage. DONT place only wooden pieces of furniture along one wall or at one end of a room. Too many wooden pieces in one cluster tend to have a cold, inhospitable look. DO mix wooden pieces with upholstered furniture for texture contrast and interest. Rich, polished wood tones look more so when contrasted by handsome fabric, and vice versa. DONT use too many matched pairs of tables, lamps or chairs in one room. Matching pieces help unify a room, but too many pairs will make your room resemble a furniture store. DO achieve variety by choosing some similar but not exactly matching pieces to balance each other two non-matching lamps of similar size and shape, for instance, would be the perfect solution.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 201118B Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: When I have a problem, no matter how little or great, I become obsessed with it. I have trouble sleeping and become frozen as to a solution. How can I overcome this?A: Why not ask for your possible solution to a problem in a dream? It appears you are racking your brain for a solution and becoming paralyzed in the process. When you are asleep, your brain is free of all the clutter of your waking day that inhibits your creativity. So when you get into bed at night, choose the issue you want help with. Turn it into a question and be sure to write it down and keep on your night stand. Repeat the question silently to yourself before you go to sleep. If your mind wanders and you cannot drift off to sleep, repeat the question silently to yourself. When you awaken, write down as much of your dream as you can remember. Once you have written down your dream, ask yourself if it sheds any light on your question. Once you get into the habit of repeating this process, it can be a healthy way to resolve your 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. 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 think younger people are so mean to those who are over the hill. They have more education and know more about what is in books, but I am not stupid and some of them dont even know how to hang up their own clothes. I dont know computers and the new things like that but I can add up numbers and do subtraction and they all have their little machines that do all of the work. Can you tell me what to do and say to shut them up? Freda Dear Freda, I have heard many very successful people complain that their adult children belittle their accomplishments in spite of their rising to the top of their professions. If young people intimidate you, just ignore their company and concentrate on people in your own age group. Many people young and old seem to enjoy making others miserable but I think it is all part of human nature. Lizzie Dear Freda, Instead of taking the time focusing on what to say to them to shut them up, take the extra time to learn about computers and new technologies. As we age, we still learn, it just takes a little longer. Remember, some younger folks may be mean, impatient or arrogant. If you get upset with them, it does not change them, it just ruins your day, and one day those younger folks will be older as well. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com.

19B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 2011deaRPharmacistBone Marrow Soup, Yummy Or Yuckkkkkkkk? by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Every fall, I worry about catching cough and cold. My Jewish grandmother used to come over and cook soup with bones in it. She insisted it would keep us healthy and made us suck the marrow out of the bones. Truthfully, we never got sick. What do you think of this idea? I dont want to torture my own kids but she may have been on to something. BE, Hartford, Connecticut Answer: Anything that helps you avoid illness (and pricey antibiotics) is fine by me! Growing up, my mom made us kids do the same. I can still hear her ravenously sucking the marrow out of the bones, they never had a chance. Bone marrow soup contains red marrow, which provides immune system factors such as myeloid stem cells, which are precursors to red blood cells that bring oxygen to your organs. It also contains lymphoid stem cells, precursors to white blood cells and platelets. White blood cells fight germs and platelets help your blood clot properly. If youre still grossed out about cooking such a prehistoric soup, keep listening. Bone broth will provide your body with two important amino acids, glycine and proline. Glycine is needed to help our body form a powerful liver antioxidant called glutathione, which neutralize poisons. Proline has been researched extensively and supports heart health by blocking dangerous lipoprotein a from sticking to your arteries (think atherosclerosis). While the idea of bone broth might make you want to fast, the truth is, bone broth is great for a fasting or detoxification program because it supports both phase I and II detoxification and builds up collagen to support healthy bones, discs in your back, your skin, ligaments, cartilage and tendons. I think bone soup can support wound healing, and joint health all while soothing inflamed mucus membranes in the digestive tract. Perfect for IBS, leaky gut, Celiac and Crohns disease. Getting hungry yet? Because I always try what I write about, I bought some bones tonight and made the soup. It tasted good. I flavored it with fresh garlic, celery, carrots, parsley and onions. I cooked it for 5 hours on low, although you could use a crock pot and let it simmer overnight. Bone marrow soup provides minerals, especially calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Great, because these support bone, heart and muscle health... and they make your nails grow fast. When cooking the soup, add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to help extract the minerals from the bone. To ramp up immune-boosting properties, buy fresh or dried astragalus root, a wonderful Chinese herb. Add onequarter cup to your soup for the last 20 minutes, but dont do this if you take methotrexate or cyclophosphamide drugs. Skim the astragalus and any fat/ foam from the soup before consuming. I draw the line at bones, but if you are friskier, make your soup with oxtail or chicken feet. DID YOU KNOW: New research suggests that blood pressure drugs called beta blockers slow the spread of breast cancer. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Professional Designation Achieved RE/MAX of the Islands announced that island resident and realtor Chuck Bergstrom has earned his Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation. Originally from Chicago, Bergstrom started visiting the islands in the late 1970s. His prior professional career includes a background in accounting and finance. He moved to the islands permanently in 2000. ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 14, 201122B Chuck Bergstrom ISLAND SUN BUSINESS NEWSMAKERS Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Is there anything that I can do to sleep better other than taking medication?A: We know that sleep, or lack of it, is a persistent problem for almost everyone these days. In my counseling and hypnotherapy practice, I encounter people all the time who feel their sleep issues are amplified due to the difficult times many people are faced with. It is so easy to cheat yourself out of a good nights sleep. Here are some suggestions to help you get a better nights sleep. 1. Wake up at the same time every day. By waking at the same time every morning you are more in sync. Activating the brain at the same time every morning teaches your body to respond what it needs and you will have a better nights sleep because of it. 2. Take that last hour before bed to wind down and relax. If you have had a busy day and you are doing everything without winding down, you will go to bed wired and stay wired. This is a good time to read, take a bubble bath, listen to relaxing music. Avoid news, any TV, Internet or stimulation that increases brain activity as opposed to decreasing the activity in the brain. 3. Put yourself first. Whatever it takes for you to relax and get ready for a good nights rest, do it. Women especially put others needs before their own and this contributes to lack of sleep. Allow your mind to rest rather than allowing the left brain to analyze and review the what-ifs. The day is done, over and finished. Now is the time to take a few deep breaths, close your eyes and drift off to sleep through the night. 4. Stop working at a reasonable time. You do not have to stay up late to get the job done. Working up until bedtime is bound to affect your sleep, and not in a positive way. Learn to unplug by controlling the electronics an hour before you go to bed. There is always tomorrow to do more work. 5. Try to have your room in total darkness. Turn away any clocks, close blinds or curtains, and unplug the night light. Total darkness tells your brain it is time to sleep. Hopefully you will benefit from these suggestions as an alternative to medication. Give it some time so you may become used to the changes and for your brain and body to respond. 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.
