Artists Reception is 5:30 to 7 p.m. Friday, October 28. Nationally known fine arts impressionist painter Pat Dunns paintings feature artists painting en plein air, landscapes, and portraits. Sculptor Yuri Tarnawiecki was born in 1965 in Lima, Peru, and moved to the United States 16 years ago. He learned silversmithing from an artisan shop and uses silversmith processes to create sculptures in stainless steel. The exhibit is a celebration of the pairs journey to becoming artists. Dunn, quoting Saint Francis of Assisi, said, He who works with his hands is a laborer; he who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman; but he who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist. continued on page 14 Art Critics oil on canvas by Pat Dunn Untitled, stainless steel sculpture by Yuri TarnawieckiBaileyfest King And Queen CrownedSanibel School fifth graders Evan Rafalski and Dahlia Day were crowned King and Queen of Baileyfest at a ceremony in their classroom on Tuesday. The youngsters wrote essays on Why Sanibel is Special to Me to enter the contest to become Sanibel royalty. Each essay was assigned a number so they could be submitted anonymously to the essay review committee at Baileys. During Baileyfest on Sunday, October 23; from 1 to 4 p.m., the King and Queen will ride on a mule-drawn carriage and read their winning essays. Evan said he was kind of scared at first when school principal Barbara Von Harten placed the crown on his head. I was really, really excited, he said. Dahlia said, I was just surprised. After being crowned, the children went to the principals office and called their parents to let them know first telling them only, Im in the principals office before surprising them that they were actually calling with good news. It couldnt have happened to two better kids, Von Harten said. Im very, very proud of you, she told the students. The entertainment line-up for Baileyfest 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. continued on page 4 Queen Dahlia Day and King Evan Rafalski Fright Night In The Police StationInkubus, an R-rated horror film starring Robert Englund (Freddy Kruger) comes to Sanibels Island Cinema for three nights only, October 29 through 31. Island Cinema is located in the Baileys Center at the intersection of Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road. Showings are at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 and all proceeds benefit Captiva Holiday Village. Inkubus tells the story of a skeleton crew working the final shift at a soon-to-be demolished police station. As you might expect, when Inkubus shows up, the real demolition begins. Chad Verdi, who owns the production company for Inkubus, is the owner and part-time resident of a home on Captiva. He is the movie producer as well as one of the characters. Verdi decided to limit the release of Inkubus to communities where he has a personal tie. Island Cinema was selected because of Verdis ties to Sanibel and Captiva. Dont miss this chance to see Englund in a limited-release film sure to become a horror cult classic. For additional information, call 472-1701. Inkubus was released on the islands because of the producers ties to the area


ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 20112 CARE Packages For Troops In Harms Way Week 6 ReportBy Ted TysonTo everyone who has donated to the campaign, thank you. Your donations of checks, books, magazines, and support have ensured the success and will enable LMHS Mil-Sup to send more holiday care packages than we had hoped to send. The $10,000 we hoped for has been achieved, and surpassed by almost $1,000. We dont know how many checks are in the mail or how many book and/or magazines will be brought to the Bank of the Islands, but we know that everyone has been very generous and supportive in many ways, and for that we thank you. We are all set through January. The campaign received donations from both Sanibel and Captiva residents, as well as from Lee County; Brisbane, Australia; and El Cajon, California. We are very pleased that the donation that put the campaign over the $10,000 top happened to come from the islands, and was the $500 donation of the Saint Michaels and All Angels Episcopal Church. So what do we do now, you ask? Well, LMHS Mil-Sup gets busy with the packing and shipping, the campaign gets busy with plans to recognize the wonderful support given by conors at the Veterans Day Ceremony November 11, at 11 a.m. at Sanibel City Hall. Kim Gaide from LMHS Mil-Sup will attend and make presentations, and Doug Quelch, president of MOAA will officiate. Patriotic songs and speeches will be enjoyed, and rain or shine this event honoring our veterans will begin promptly at 11 a.m. Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy a truly wonderful ceremony put on jointly by the City of Sanibel and the Lee Coast Military Officers Association of America (LCMOAA). Because of increased public participation, this year the city will provide 10 percent more shade seats than last year. Thanks, city The LMHS Mil-Sup campaign has heard from businesses, civic associations, and people who want to donate to the troops but were not reached in this six-week period. Because of this interest and because the increasing need for year-round care packages to Our Troops in Harms Way, the LMHS Mil-Sup campaign will solicit donations from February 1 through March 31, to provide CARE Packages for Our Troops in Harms Way for the rest of the year to September 2012. In this interim period, since the campaign has reached its goal, we support our donors supporting church and local Sanibel-Captiva and Lee County charities, especially those providing food, clothing, shelter, and gifts to persons who may be indigent, seniors, children, or handicapped, in order to make their holidays a little better also. Our troops want them to have a happy holiday also. Next week, after giving time for the in-the-mail donations to arrive at the Bank of the Islands, 1699 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel 33957, the campaign will issue an end report listing the most recent donors and announcing the total number of CARE Packages donated. Remember, if you know of a member of the military who is serving overseas and needs a holiday lift, let us know his/her name, unit address and APO/FPO right up to December 3, and well send a Holiday care package. It is not necessary to donate to have a care package sent to our troops for the holidays or any other time. God Bless you, God Bless America, and God Bless our Troops in Harms Way.

Food collected will go to Lee County Domestic Animal Services Community Pet Pantry Program.ISLAND PAWS ANNUALHOWL-O-WEEN PARTY! Second, Sanibel is special to me because of the many bike trails on the island. It is very unique to live where you can bike anywhere you want without hearing the roar of traffic pounding your eardrums. On Sanibel you can enjoy a nice, peaceful bike ride through nature, where the only sound is the wind in the trees that seems to whisper a warm welcome as you ride by. One of my favorite pastimes is biking around the island with my family. Biking is one of the many things that makes Sanibel special and anyone who has been here would say the same! Last and certainly not least, what would Sanibel be without its beautiful beaches? Sanibels beaches are probably the #1 thing that makes it special to me. The sand feels like powder to your feet, the ocean waves slowly creep up and then crash on the beach on a windy day. The constant ebb and flow of the water is one of my favorite sounds. Also, if you want to go shelling anywhere, Sanibel is the place to be! There are so many magnificent shells, you cant take three steps on a beach without seeing something that catches your eye. Sanibels beaches make it one of the best islands in the world! That is what makes Sanibel a very special place. I love Sanibel, and it is a wonderful place to live. The Kings Essay Why Sanibel is Special to Me Before I came to Sanibel I felt like a nut. I felt trapped, worthless, with no hope left. I thought my life had no purpose. But when I came to Sanibel my life finally meant something. The nut cracked open. I finally know who I am now, Im me. When Sanibel wasnt in my life I was sad and depressed, I got bullied, teased, and made fun of. Here in Sanibel the sunsets at beaches connect to my life. They fill me with hope and pride. I finally feel happy. The sound of the bright sparkling waves against the smooth sand fills my heart with joy! The people here help me, and make me feel joyful.Now I know that this is where I belong, and this is where my life starts. Here, on Sanibel Island. Theres no place like it. Sanibel cant be beat. From page 1BaileyfestThe Queens EssayWhy Sanibel is Special to Me As I walk down one of Sanibels beautiful beaches, the wind blowing in my hair, and the waves gently lapping up by my bare feet, I think, If I chose three reasons why Sanibel is special to me, they would be the wildlife, the bike trails, and of course, the beaches. As I turn around and head back toward my home by the beach, I think more about this subject. Sanibel is special to me for these reasons. First, Sanibel is special to me because of all the wildlife that thrives here on the island. There are bright pink roseate spoonbills, silent herons, playful dolphins, sneaky raccoons, beastly alligators, and the one we have a bit too much of, the pesky mosquito! If you want to go somewhere for wildlife watching, this is the place! I can spot over 10 different kinds of animals in my own backyard! Wildlife is definitely a reason why Sanibel is special to me.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 20116 Greetings island residents, family and friends. My name is Kaici Love-Gavin. You may recall reading my story in the May 6 publication of the Island Sun or you may have received a letter in the mail, sharing with you the story of my life journey with diabetes that ultimately led to my need of a kidney/pancreas transplant. First, my husband and I would like to thank all of you, both known and anonymous contributors, from the bottom of our hearts for your love, compassion, kindness, prayers, cards, emails, phone calls and financial contributions during this chapter of our lives. All these things combined were essential in the success of the transplant process that has led me to where I am today. My kidney/pancreas transplant took place on April 5 and was a huge success. The road was sometimes rocky in the healing process, which caused us to have to relocate to Tampa for an extended period of time. We were finally able to return home in July. Through it all, our strong faith and love for the Lord is what kept us focused and able to overcome those challenges. Today as a result of having a new kidney, I am no longer tired all the time and can participate in family activities. I can move about freely with ease, my color has returned, my blood pressure is normal and I am no longer on dialysis. As a result of my new pancreas, I am no longer diabetic. No more insulin shots, finger pokes or diet restrictions. This means that this Thanksgiving I can eat a whole sweet potato pie if I want to (but I wont, LOL!). All in all, things are pretty good. I can now pursue and operate in the works that God has for my life. I have been given a second chance and will do my best to live my life worthy and on purpose. I will, however, be on medications for the rest of my life. Immuno-suppresents are necessary to keep my organs from rejecting by keeping my immune system suppressed, as my body will never recognize these organs as my own. These medicines are very expensive and will be required for the rest of my life. My husband is the only one that is currently able to work full-time. Upon full healing, I am looking forward to returning to work. This breach in employment, however, has affected our personal finances tremendously. The contributions to NTAF have certainly helped us in meeting some of our medical obligations. Moving forward, our challenge will be to repair our personal financial obligations. As with this whole journey, we will continue to trust God for answers and direction. He would not bring us this far and not see us through. We just want to say again to you all that we so appreciate your support and that we would not be where we are today without you. Thank you. May Gods love and blessings be with you, Kaici and Eric Gavin Attention Sanibel-Captiva GardenersThe first program of the 2011-12 Master Gardener Lecture Series (the 53rd program) will be held on Thursday, November 3, at the Sanibel Library at 10 a.m. The speaker is Karl Rodman, a resident of Sanibel, who volunteered to take over and expand the Heritage Garden in the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village approximately 1years ago. The Heritage Garden is actually two gardens divided by a shell path lined with horse conchs. There, Rodman has planted a variety of vegetables and herbs similar to those grown by the pioneer families for daily consumption. His organic methods including producing his compost onsite and supplementing with horse manure from the Churchill family horse farm on Sanibel produce healthy, nutritious vegetables. He donates the freshly harvested produce to FISHs (Friends In Service Here) food pantry for its clients. In addition, Rodman has installed a drip irrigation system to conserve water and direct it more accurately to his crops. Many full-time residents and seasonal guests have small plots of land or sunny patios or lanais where they could easily raise their favorite vegetables or herbs in containers. According to the University of Florida and Stephen Brown at the University Extension, this is the prime time to start vegetables and herbs. An extensive handout will be available free for those attending the program. Rodman has been a long-time volunteer and docent at the historical museum continued on page 14 CARD OF THANKS Eric and Kaici Gavin Independently Owned And Operated COPYRIGHT 2011 Island Sun USPS 18: Bulk Rate permit paid for at Sanibel, Florida, 33957 Postmaster: Send change of address to Island Sun, 1640 Periwinkle Way, Suite 2, Sanibel, FL 33957 Published every Friday for the people and visitors of Sanibel and Captiva Islands.

7 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 2011 Third Annual South Seas Buddy WalkThe 3rd Annual South Seas Buddy Walk is scheduled for Saturday, November 5 at 11 a.m. The mile-long walk will take place inside the resort village with the procession of close to 200 participants walking down Plantation Road. The Buddy Walk is a multi-city advocacy walk in which people with Down syndrome invite buddies to walk with them. Buddies can be anyone from friends to teachers or co-workers to politicians. The Buddy Walk promotes acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome while raising awareness of their potential. More than 225,000 people participate nationally each year. My wife and I are lucky enough to be the parents of Jamison Ann, born six years ago with this genetic disorder which simply left her one matching chromosome short of the normal pair, said event organizer and Managing Director of the resort Rick Hayduk. Theres no cure for Down syndrome but then again, those of us blessed with Down children will tell you we wouldnt have it any other way.Participants and sponsors for the walk are now being accepted. Individual walkers begin at $20 for adults, $10 for children ages five to 13, and $100 for family sponsorships. Corporate sponsorships range from $250 to $500. Registrations will also be accepted the day of the walk. All registration fees include T-shirt, post-walk barbecue lunch with live entertainment, bounce houses and activities for the kids.According to Hayduk, proceeds will benefit the National Down Syndrome Society and local organizations that assist with inclusionary practices for Down individuals. The NDSS has shown repeatedly over the past 20 years that through legislation, inclusionary practices from the school system to social situations has raised the expectation level of Down individuals, Hayduk said. While many were institutionalized less than 20 years ago, it is not uncommon for Down individuals to live independent, albeit structured lives, Hayduk added. In addition, funds raised will benefit the nonprofit Sanibel Sea School that provides placement for Down children in their summer camp; Special Equestrians, a local organization that supports the development of Down individuals through horse therapy; and new this year, the children will present a check to the Lee Memorial Health System for its new pediatric emergency room. The 2010 South Seas Buddy Walk raised more than $8,000. Down kids are born givers and I can tell you they will be pleased to know they contributed to help other children in need, Hayduk added. Jamison sees life in a manner that would benefit us all if we did the same. Even at the early age of six, she sees only the good in others, senses when youre sad and is driven to make you smile.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 201112 Areas Low Tide Exposes Expensive Grounding AccidentCourse 2 of the Sanibel Captiva Sail & Power Squadrons class on safe navigation and avoiding being grounded is scheduled for Saturday, November 12 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Sanibel Library. Roger Heider, a certified instructor and engineer familiar with local waters, will be the instructor. Course 1 dealt with navigational charts. Course 2 builds on that by introducing GPS (global positioning systems) and GPS course plotters. Note that previous courses are not required to register for this course. A chart is like a roadmap over water but shows those things below the water that can damage your boat. GPS tells you where you are on the water (and also can tell you where you have been). You then determine where you wish to go and, using your chart, determine the latitude and longitude and enter that in the GPS. As there may be hazards to avoid in heading to your destination, you adjust your course to work around those hazards by selecting intermediate points called waypoints. You enter the latitude and longitude of any necessary waypoints into your GPS. Your GPS, or GPS plotter screen, then provides you with a visual of the route to follow with bearings and distance. This is a must course for traveling these waters with their many sandbars and shallows. To register go to www.usps.org/cgi-bin-nat/eddept/cfind.cgi. For information regarding the course call Roger Heider at 395-0959 or Tom Gillis at 472-3828.

Bobbie Featherstons class, also escorted by assistants Debbie Blair and Michele Speece, was split into groups and led by Shell Museum Public Programs Specialist Diane Thomas and volunteers Amy OConnor-Walker and Steve Smith. The young guests watched a mollusk video, spent time at a hands-on discovery table, played a shell game, observed live shells and toured the Great Hall exhibits. Featherston was glad to bring a new class to Sanibel and claimed that even she learned a few more tidbits about shells this time. Its wonderful, she said of the field trip. We just like it because the kids learn so much about things that are in their community and surrounding us in Florida. Luke Phommachanh also found the visit educational. I learned some new things about the shells, like what they were called and also that they had an operculum (lid) the thing that protects it from predators that might eat it, he said. Classmate Jack Roach found the fighting conch fascinating because its base foot contains a serrated spike thats used to defend itself. It was cool, he said. Elyse Ranck also enjoyed her close encounters with mollusks. I liked to pick up the shells with the snails inside, she said. I got to touch them and it felt really cool. Thomas welcomes the opportunity to share the Shell Museum experience with enthusiastic visitors. It is always a pleasure to have school groups at the museum, she said. This provides an opportunity to teach science concepts with real world, hands-on experiences. The live tank is a favorite part of the tour for students of all ages. We often hear squeals of delight as students get squirted while watching the mollusks retreating into their shell. Watching the fighting conch wave its foot and roll its shell for protection is also always a crowd pleaser. If you are interested in having your school group take a Shell Museum tour, contact Diane Thomas at dothomas@ shellmuseum.org, or at 395-2233.

15 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 2011 CROW Case Of The Week: Common Nighthawkby Emilie AlfinoA tiny nighthawk arrived at CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife) on May 16 with no history but with a very guarded prognosis. Weighing only 7 grams, the bird was cool, quiet and a little dehydrated. His body was in fair condition but his very small size was working against him. He could have been abandoned or orphaned but more likely he had been abducted by well-meaning people who thought he was without a mom, said Wildlife Rehabilitator Robin Bast. People mean well and theyre trying to do the right thing, but the best thing to do is to call us so we can assess whether an animal is really orphaned or if mom is still around. The CROW staff decided to try handraising him. They gave him some fluids orally and offered him food meal worms and crickets in soaked cat chow but it took him a while to get the hang of eating. Eating at CROW must have been a strange experience for the little guy. In the wild, nighthawks fly around with their mouths open wide and catch bugs. We cant mimic that very easily here, Bast said. Thats why its a challenge raising these birds; you cant mimic the wild. CROW staff went to extraordinary lengths to ensure the little bird could be returned to the wild. You have to feed them in such a way that they dont imprint on humans, said Bast. We would feed him pieces of food on the edge of a hemostat (a surgical tool, essentially long forceps) while hiding ourselves behind a towel so he couldnt see us but saw only the food. We had a mirror in his cage, too, so he could see himself eating instead of seeing us. These complicated but necessary methods of care are further proof that its not a good idea for anybody to raise baby wild animals especially birds. On June 15, someone observed the bird making short flights in his small wooden cage on CROWs porch. He had been inside in the incubator for a while so wed moved him to a cage. In July he was moved outside to one of our aviaries, Bast said. Once in the aviary, he started to have issues eating on his own; Bast decided to keep him there a bit longer so he could develop adequate strength in his flight muscles. But a wrench was thrown in the plans by a red belly woodpecker. In September staff noticed the nighthawk had a scab-like lesion on top of his head. A mystery at first, they determined his cage companion, a red belly woodpecker, was the cause. The woodpecker apparently decided not to get along with him, so we separated them, said Bast. Two days of antibiotic cream did the trick and the growing bird was able to go back outside. The nighthawk was released on Sanibel October 9 weighing 64 grams, almost 10 times his body weight on arrival. We released him on the island because naturalists and bird watchers told us the nighthawks were migrating through at that time, Bast explained. Hopefully he can join up with one of them and his instincts will kick in.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 201116 Annual Butterfly Conference The 11th Annual Butterfly Conference & Garden Tour is Saturday, November 5, starting at Terry Park and ending at Pelican Landing in Bonita Springs. Sponsored by IFAS Extension and the Lee County Master Gardeners, the day of seminars with a community-led butterfly walking tour shows Southwest Florida residents how to increase the number and diversity of Florida butterflies finding host and nectar plants in their yards. Seminar topics begin at 8:15 a.m. at Terry Park, 3406 Palm Beach Boulevard in Fort Myers and end at 11:55 a.m. with a raffle drawing and lunch. The seminars answer questions like: What do local butterflies require? What wildflower meadows and native ecosystems can be replicated in your backyard? Do you live in a master planned community and want to attract butterflies to areas adjoining a golf course? Kathy Malone, a retired specialist with the Florida-Florida Landscaping Program in Gainesville will discuss the concept of attracting butterflies to all areas of a community, from individual backyards to scenic lakefronts, as well as creating and preserving local wetlands. One local butterfly garden is featured on the butterfly tour near Bonita Springs. A well-known golf course community, Pelican Landing, houses a beautiful nature park and butterfly garden. Visiting butterflies travel over the mangrove forest bordering Estero Bay and enter a secluded oasis of butterfly-attracting plants designed by local gardeners and butterfly enthusiasts. Meet the butterfly garden curator, Bob Lerew. In addition to the two special seminars in the morning and the afternoon tour from 2 to 4 p.m., attendees will learn how to protect and identify the east coast migrating Monarch butterfly. Participants will learn how to properly tag and record a Monarch sighting in Southwest Florida. This portion of the program is led by Drs. James and Kelly Dunford flying in from Atlanta, Georgia. In addition, 15 local plant vendors are participating as well as other sponsoring organizations including the Lee County Florida Yards and Neighborhoods program, celebrating its 10th year serving local residents by creating attractive, wildlife-friendly landscapes. The total cost for the single day of butterfly activities is $15. Attendees can also choose to purchase a $5 box lunch provided at a discount by Jasons Deli. Lunch includes a choice of a ham, turkey, or vegetarian sandwich with pickles, chips, cookie and beverage.

Sparkling and festive holiday trees, wreaths, and garlands will be featured at the clubhouse in a silent auction, raising important philanthropic support for the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW). The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company is the premier event sponsor. CROWs Giving Tree Festival is a unique way to make holiday wishes come true for our patients, said Steve Greenstein, CROWs executive director. We are also grateful to the Sanibel Captiva Trust Company for being the premier sponsor of the event again this year. Their generosity will continue to help us make a difference in the lives of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. CROW board member Daniel MooreThompson, chair of the event, has been busy recruiting designers. The Giving Tree Festival has become an island tradition and we are thrilled to have the support of this special community. The generosity of such talented artists ensures we can treat our patients throughout the year, reflected Moore-Thompson. The island festival draws locals and visitors from all corners of Florida. The centerpiece is The Giving Tree that offers opportunities to donate funds to specific needs for the organization. The Giving Tree Festival combines first-class Sanctuary hospitality, colorful island neighbors, gorgeous trees, and the incredible holiday generosity that these islands are famous for said CROW President John Schubert.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 201118 First Red Tide In Five Yearsby Capt. Matt MitchellWith reports of the first red tide in our area for roughly five years, the strong east winds we have had the last few days are probably a good thing. Hopefully the wind will keep the red tide offshore and not let it get into the Sound. According to the FWC website, the blood was first detected roughly two weeks ago along Sarasota county. The strongest concentrations of the toxic bloom where found roughly nine to 14 miles west of Boca Grande pass. Widespread fishkills where reported from Englewood to Boca Grande. While out fishing gulfside this week, I did run a few miles out of Captiva Pass and did not see any dead fish or smell the red tide. For up-to-date reports on the movement and concentrations of the red tide you can go to http://myfwc.com/research/redtide/ events/status/statewide/#map. Fishing for me this week was either one of two ways: getting out along the beaches and catching all the spanish mackerel, sharks and Bonita you could handle; or working hard in the bay for a few redfish and maybe a snook or two. The morning falling tides along with strong winds and stirred-up water were just not a good combination for bay fishing. Tides will flip over this week, giving us good high water during the mornings and the bay fishing should get better. Gulfside fishing right off the beaches still remains the best bet if you can make it through the rough bay and out through the passes to the beaches. Bonita, spanish mackerel and sharks are still right off the beaches out to a few miles. The most productive area for me this week was out in 25-to-28 feet of water due west of Redfish Pass. These fish are feeding on huge cloud-like schools of glass minnows that they push to the surface. This is the whole food chain going on out here and is some of my favorite fishing of the year, as you never know what you will run into. Low-flying feeding birds made it easy to find where the fish are gorging on the migrating bait fish. Small spoons or jigs worked quickly and, thrown right through the feeding fish, draw strikes just about every cast. While fishing the blitz, have a few bigger rods ready as a few of the schools of feeding mackerel have had cobia and some bigger sharks working them too. I like to have a freeline set up with a short piece of wire on it for cut-bait fishing the sharks, then another big spinning rod with a float set up for live bait for a possible cobia. The bigger the blitz the better the chance it will have some larger predators in it. These bigger predator fish will usually be close to the surface and you often have very little time to present bait to them, so being rigged and ready to go is the key. With stone crab season open October 15 there are lots of crab pots on the gulfside to look for tripletail on. These pots have been out for a few weeks and are starting to get some growth on them. Most of the tripletail have been on the smaller side but as the water temperature drops, the tripletail will get bigger. Tripletail have to be 15 inches to keep and you are allowed two per angler. These are one of the best eating fish caught in our area with firm white flesh. Be carefull when handling these prehistoric-looking fish as they have really sharp gill plates and spines. Use live shrimp or small shiners and pinfish either freelined or fished under a float. In a pinch without a small livebait in the livewell, I have caught these tripletail on a DOA shrimp under a popping cork. When running and gunning the blitz out gulfside ,you might as well check out a few crab pots too.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.

19 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 2011CROW Celebrates Breeding Season With OSPREYFEST!You may have noticed an increase in osprey activity lately, as the large brown-and-white raptors return to the islands to ease into their breeding season. While ospreys are technically not snowbirds, like humans, many go elsewhere during the summer and return in the autumn to get their nests in order and settle in for the winter and spring. In Southwest Florida, ospreys start incubating eggs in mid-January, so the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) will celebrate the start of the breeding season with OSPREYFEST! The event will feature CROWs Story of Ospreys presented by Bird Westall, founder of The International Osprey Foundation (TIOF); Claudia Burns, longtime CROW/TIOF volunteer; and Dave Horton, illustrator of Look Whos Flying, an educational coloring book about ospreys, and creator of the Hortoons seen in many locations on the islands. OSPREYFEST! will be sponsored by the Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, with Baileys General Store as wine sponsor, and celebrated at Traditions on the Beach in Sanibels historic Island Inn on West Gulf Drive at 4:30 p.m. January 15. A silent auction of osprey-related items will be offered prior to a three-course sit-down dinner created and served by Andrea Muccigas awarding-winning staff. Hortoon will entertain OSPREYFEST! attendees before the meal by creating an impromptu drawing of an osprey. Following dinner, Claudia Burns will present The Story of Ospreys, punctuated with lifelike osprey calls performed by Bird. After the presentation, Hortoons on-the-spot drawing and a depiction of an osprey created for CROW by Darryl Pottorf will be offered to the highest bidder. All proceeds will go toward the care and feeding of wildlife patients at CROW. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available for $100 (Nestling), $250 (Fledgling), and $500 (Fish Hawk). Admission to OSPREYFEST! is $75 per person and limited to 175 celebrants.

Landrus was on a kayak trip near the west end of Bunche Beach, which is at the end of John Morris Road in Fort Myers, when she saw this activity she had never seen before, and a golden opportunity for some magnificent photos. This is only the second time in 25 years that Ive actually seen a bald eagle fish, Landrus said. The eagle couldnt get the fish all the way up in the air and laid it down, she explained. He looked spooked because a couple of other eagles were around. The eagle abandoned his meal and never came back for as long as Landrus observed. Shell Museum Sponsors Free Monthly Beach Walk ProgramIf you would like to enjoy an early morning walk on the beach and learn something about the spectacular collection of shells found on Sanibel, The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum is offering a free monthly program that is fun and fascinating for the whole family. Participants will meet at Gulfside City Park/Algiers Beach on the last Tuesday of the month at 9 a.m. (The next event is October 25). Shell Museum volunteer Dotty DeVasure, a lifelong shelling expert, will give tips on finding and identifying mollusks, as well as explain how they live, eat and move. During the beach walk (which lasts about an hour), DeVasure will be available to answer questions and help participants identify shells. The program is free, but parking fees will apply.

The year-rounders were there. Snowbirds from Minnesota, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Vermont, all escaping to Florida. It is good to see friends who have been gone for six months, more or less a chance to get together to be included in the life and adventures of each other. There is a social kinship of members of a service organization. Talk was of enthusiastic anticipation of plans for the coming year. The squadrons prime function is safe boating through education, with the first course with Tom Gilles instructing on How to Use a Chart at the library on November 5. Roger Heider will be teaching Global Positioning Systems on November 12. Steve Abbott teaches Basic Coastal Navigation on December 10. A total of 14 courses are already scheduled. For the entire education plan of public courses go to www.usps.org/ cgi-bin-nat/eddept/cfind.cgi. In the world of civic service, Jim Strothers and the Sanibel Emergency Rescue Assistance Team (SERAT) with the Sanibel Fire Department are ready for water-related emergencies. They will provide assistance at the kayak races on November 6, scheduled just beside and south of the causeway in San Carlos Bay. At all events, power squadron members are alert to the proper condition and location of navigational markers. For example, on a cruise to Burnt Store in Charlotte Harbor in early November, boaters will check for markers and buoys and notify the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of any need for possible corrections. Bob Healey has his crew ready for a free boat inspection for necessary safety equipment and conditions. All of this is just part of the first several months of our season. With over 300 members, there is a place for everyone. Whether social, educational, or civic, the power squadron provides a service to boaters.

Bill and Marilyn Helfers, cruise directors Send your editorial copy to:press@islandsunnews.com Nautical Triviaby Bryan HenryThe merchant ship Columbia, setting sail from Boston in 1787, was the first American ship to circumnavigate the globe. The Aryan, the last wooden fullrigged ship built in the United States, was launched in Phippsburg, Maine in 1893. The Century Magazine originally published serially Captain Joshua Slocums Sailing Alone Around the World. It was released in book form in 1900. Why were tin cans invented in the 19th century? So that food could be stored in them by English sailors making long sea voyages. Master clipper ship designer Donald McKay was apprenticed as a shipwright in New York City at 16 years old, and he got his own Massachusetts shipyard at 34. Salem, Massachusetts became Americas first shipbuilding center in 1629. When insurance on ships and their cargoes was introduced generally in 14th-century Europe, it was fanatically opposed on the grounds that it was an attempt to defeat financial disasters willed by God. Shellabration 2012 will mark the 75th annual Sanibel Shell Fair and Show. Plans are under way for an island-wide celebration February 26 through March 4.

25 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 2011Adopt-A Class Program Gives Lee County Youths Opportunity At Bailey-Matthews Shell MuseumSince the inception of the Adopt-a-Class Program in 2003, The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum has been able to provide group tours and a one-of-a kind educational experience for thousands of children in Lee County. Adopt-aClass creates the opportunity for fourth-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 have called the field trip the highlight of the school year for their fourth graders. While on a field trip to The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, fourth graders will learn about mollusks, the soft-bodied invertebrates that make their own shells. 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 introduction to shells in the learning laboratory, a 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 fourth 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 community support, Adopt-a-Class will once again be a highly successful educational outreach program for 2011-2012. The museum is asking for sponsorships; a sponsorship costs $450, or co-sponsorships cost $300. The full amount of the contribution is 100 percent tax-deductible. Anyone who would like to help sponsor the Adopt-a-Class program should contact Amanda Stirn at astirn@shellmuseum.org. If you would like more educational program information, contact Diane Thomas at dothomas@shellmuseum.org, or call the museum at 395-2233.

The production is presented by Laboratory Theater of Florida. Albee offers a tale that exposes all the dirty linen in a marriage between George and Martha. They expose it in front of a young faculty couple theyve invited over for nightcaps after a faculty reception. This is a very powerful and emotional play that opened on Broadway in 1962. I talked to Stephanie Davis, who plays the role of Martha, and asked what she feels is the reason for its popularity. She said, Albees words and the story resonate with audiences. Its a timeless classic story about marriage, about survival and about love and these are three things to which we can all relate. When asked what she feels the playwright wanted the audience to feel while seeing the play, Davis replied, I think its up to every audience member as to what they will feel. Everyone will interpret it differently and thats the beauty of the play. I like the way Albee wrote this play and the way it unfolds and takes the audience on a rollercoaster of emotions, from laughter to tears to anger. Its all there for the audience to experience. Some very famous women have played the role of Martha, from Elizabeth Taylor to Kathleen Turner, and Davis does not have to take a back seat to anyone. Her performance is exceptional. I know, because I saw the show last year at Lab Theater. I asked how she prepares for such a demanding role. She said, Oddly Ive never felt so comfortable in a characters skin as I feel in Marthas. She is a very broken person but shes a fighter and a survivor and shes very smart. About an hour before the show I pace and I drink coffee and I run through my lines and just get into Martha. I have to be alone to get into the role. When asked what is taking place beneath the surface of the fireworks between George and Martha, Davis said, I think in a lot of ways this is a game for them. In fact one of the acts is titled Fun and Games. Its a game of words and one-upmanship and so much of it is funny. We were very surprised to hear so much laughter in the audience when we did the play the first time, Davis continued. So much of it is cathartic and so much is funny.

Put that surging Arian energy to good use and explore it to your hearts content. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is the time to prepare for a career move coming up next month. Update your resume. Get those proposals in shape. And dont forget to buff up that Bovine self-confidence. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your Gemini instincts will guide you to the right people who might be able to help you get over that career impasse that has been holding you back. Expect to make changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre getting closer, but you still have a ways to go before reaching your goals. Continue to stay focused, no matter how difficult it can be for the easily distracted Moon Child. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your Leonine pride might be keeping you from getting to the source of a disturbing situation. Dont be shy about asking questions. Remember: Information is power. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Its a good time to shake up your tidy little world by doing something spontaneous, like taking an unplanned trip or going on a mad shopping spree. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) This is a good week to get advice on your plans. But dont act on them until you feel sure that youve been told everything you need to know to support your move. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful. You might be probing just a little too deeply into a situation that you find singularly suspicious. The facts you seek will begin to emerge at a later time. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) This is a good week to make new friends and to look for new career challenges. But first, get all those unfinished tasks wrapped up and out of the way. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Relationships need a fresh infusion of tender, loving care. Avoid potential problems down the line. Stay close to loved ones as the month draws to a close. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Aspects favor relationships, whether platonic, professional or personal. On another note: Be a mite more thrifty. You might need some extra money very soon. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) This is the absolute right time to let those oftenhidden talents shine their brightest. Youll impress some very important people with what you can do. BORN THIS WEEK: You are impelled by a need to find truth, no matter how elusive. You would make a wonderful research scientist or an intrepid detective. On Oct. 29, 1618, Sir Walter Raleigh, English adventurer and favorite courtier of Queen Elizabeth I, is beheaded in London, under a sentence brought against him 15 years earlier. He had been released to establish a gold mine in South America. On Oct. 27, 1873, an Illinois farmer named Joseph Glidden submits an application to the U.S. Patent Office for his design for a fencing wire with sharp barbs. Gliddens twostrand barb wire design changed the face of the American West. On Oct. 28, 1886, President Grover Cleveland dedicates The Statue of Liberty, a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States, in New York Harbor. Originally known as Liberty Enlightening the World, the statue was to commemorate the Franco-American alliance during the American Revolution. On Oct. 24, 1901, a 63-year-old schoolteacher named Annie Edson Taylor becomes the first person to take the plunge over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Taylor reached the shore alive, if a bit battered, 20 minutes after her journey began. On Oct. 30, 1938, Orson Welles causes a nationwide panic with his broadcast of War of the Worlds -a realistic radio dramatization of a Martian invasion of Earth. The radio hoax included an announcement of a large meteor crash in New Jersey and the annihilation of 7,000 National Guardsmen. On Oct. 25, 1944, during the Battle of the Leyte Gulf, the Japanese deploy kamikaze suicide bombers against U.S. warships for the first time. More than 1,321 Japanese pilots crash-dived their planes into Allied warships during World War II. On Oct. 26, 1986, Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner lets an easy ground ball dribble between his legs and roll down the right-field line during the 10th inning of the sixth game of the World Series. The game was tied and, thanks to Buckners error, the runner on third had time to score, winning the game for the Mets and forcing a tiebreaking seventh game -which, in the final innings, the Mets also won. It was 19th-century American humorist Josh Billings who made the following sage observation: Dont mistake pleasure for happiness. Theyre a different breed of dog. Those who study such things say that the immortal bard, William Shakespeare, used a grand total of 17,677 words in his works. (That must have been a tedious calculation.) They also say that fully one-tenth of those words had never been used in writing before. If youre like the average American, you eat approximately 10 pounds of chocolate every year. You might be surprised to learn that the first automobile insurance policy was sold way back in 1897. One Gilbert J. Loomis of Dayton, Ohio, was evidently concerned about the potential damage that could be done by his newly acquired car, so he got general liability protection in case driving his car resulted in someones death or injury, or in case property was damaged. High-quality opals can be more valuable than diamonds. If you are of a certain age, you might remember that in the mid-1960s, root beerflavored milk was available for purchase. Then again, you might not; the marketing experiment was a flop and the product was pulled in short order. When people who are blind from birth dream, they dont see images; instead, they hear and feel the dream. For this reason, its said that their dreams can seem much more real. Those who become blind later in life do see images in their dreams, but the images fade the longer they live without sight. In the early 1900s, the average American got about nine hours of sleep every night. (I presume that statistic excludes the parents of new babies, who have been sleep-deprived since time immemorial.) Fear is the tax that conscience pays to guilt. -George Sewell THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY


29 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 2011The Sanibel Sea Schools Holiday CampJoin Sanibel Sea School for Holiday Camp 2011, where all will celebrate the spirit of the season and explore the motion of the ocean. Have you ever wanted to send a message in a bottle? Wonder where it might end up? Or where the things that land on our shores came from? This holiday season, the Sea Schools Holiday Camp will try to find some of these answers through experiments designed to study currents. Ocean currents are crucial to life on this planet everyone is downstream of someone else. Campers will experiment by releasing coconuts in the Gulf of Mexico and following where they go. Campers will write messages of good tidings to send with these coconuts. When not studying currents and sending messages, campers will use the Sanibel Sea School as a film studio to create short animated movies exploring movement over time and construct animated clips using natural objects. Everyone will brave the chilly Gulf waters to surf, seine, explore and celebrate the winter season. Three sessions will be offered for Holiday Camp 2011: Weekly camps from December 19 through 23 and December 26 through 30 (Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.), as well as a special three-day session January 2 through 4 (Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.). This new three-day session is called In the Lee and is designed for Lee County students and others still on holiday break. The name In the Lee also refers to the leeward or direction downwind on a boat. Campers will interview people who may have found a leeward Sanibel Sea School coconut. And as usual, all will hit the chilly mid-winter to brave surfing and seining! Camp sessions are designed for sixto 13-year-olds. Tuition for the first two camp sessions will be $250 per week, while the three-day In the Lee session will cost $100. A one-time $50 registration fee will cover associated costs.

The ballet marks the third in a trilogy of collaborations between Art of the Olympians and the Dance Alive National Ballet featuring artwork of two Olympic Gold Medal winners, Bob Beamon and Peggy Flemming. Fire and Ice incorporates visual projections, while sculpture and art hangings provide the dynamic background for this original dance. The International Bach Competition will perform for this work. Fire represents the Summer Olympics, and Ice, the Winter Olympics. Bob Beamon, gold medalist in the long jump in 1968, provides edgy graphic designs as a backdrop for resident choreographer Judy Skinner and composer Stella Sung. Beamon is a graphic artist, percussionist, and currently serves as CEO of Art of the Olympians Museum and Gallery. Peggy Fleming, the only gold medalist in figure skating for USA at Grenoble, has recently found a passion for painting. Two of her works will be the inspiration for a work choreographed for principal dancers Andre Valladon and Michele Incollingo by Kim Tuttle. Flemings style, grace and elegance provide the inspiration for another work by Judy Skinner. Choreographer Cristina Helena, considered one of Brazils most gifted choreographers, has created a work for principals Carla Amancio and Fhilipe Teixeira for the Fire in Fire and Ice.

Dance Alive Fire and Ice dancers From page 26Viginia WoolfI dont think Nick and Honey are the first young couple that they have invited back to their house. This is a game they have played many, many times and it usually unfolds the same way each time. Interestingly, the audience will find it a very funny show, but one that will make you think. One minute youre howling with laughter and the next you are literally on the edge of your seat. The play involves the two couples playing games, which are savage verbal attacks against one or two of the others at the party. They also consume an enormous amount of alcohol, drinking from midnight to sunrise in an excruciating game of charades. Albee chose the title as a parody of the song Whos Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf, or whos afraid of living life without false illusions.Having seen this play before with the same cast, I highly recommend it. In addition to Stephanie Davis as Martha, Scott Carpenter plays George, Doug Landin is Nick and Nykkie Ptaszek plays Honey. Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf plays October 27 through November 5 at the Herb Strauss Theater, 2200 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. For tickets call 472-6862. Read us online at IslandSunNews.com


31 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 2011Take Part: Ocean Conservancy And Sustainability By Andrew StansellThe Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education at Florida Gulf Coast University has announced its 6th Annual Terry Tempest Williams Student Dialogue. The series focuses on education for a sustainable future, including our role as stewards of our natural, cultural, and political environments. The dialogue is intended to spark youth action and inspire the intellectual climate among FGCU and Southwest Florida communities while fostering an open space for individual ownership. This years Terry Tempest Williams Student Dialogue entitled Ocean Conservation and Sustainability will be held on Thursday, October 27, ,at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom at FGCU, and is free and open to the public. In 2003, the Pew Oceans Commission warned that the worlds oceans are in a state of silent collapse, threatening our food supply, marine economies, recreation, and the natural legacy we leave our children. In 2011, that message still rings loud and clear as our marine ecosystems continue to decline. This years expert panelists will discuss the major issues affecting the health of our oceans and touch on what is the best course of action for protecting this precious resource. This year Vikki Spruill of the Ocean Conservancy, a lasting partner of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation in its Annual International Coastal Cleanup; and Sheila Bowman of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program will be speaking at the event. They will explore the complexity of ocean conservation, seafood sustainability, and address the relationship between human activities and the health of our oceans. The center invites stakeholders, community members, students, and campus leaders for conversation and snacks outside the ballroom before the event for a networking session starting at 6 p.m. Attendance from the local community is highly encouraged. The center urges anyone interested in learning more about the topic to come out and discuss Ocean Conservation and Sustainability at the Terry Tempest Williams Student Dialogue. For more information or directions to FGCU, contact the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education by email at cese@fgcu.edu or by phone at 590-7025.

Captiva Cruises Resuming Tour To Tarpon Lodge, Calusa Heritage TrailCaptiva 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. The RRC, a program of the Florida Museum of Natural History, aims to establish and maintain, at the internationally significant Pineland archeological and historical site, a permanent facility dedicated to learning and teaching the archeology, history and ecology of Southwest Florida. An RRC educator will guide the tour on The Calusa Heritage Trail to one of the pre-Columbian mounds of the ancient Calusa while elaborating on this unique fishing culture. The resumption of the tour to Pine Island will occur on Saturday, October 15, at 10 a.m. Captiva Cruises has established Discover Southwest Florida History cruises to Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Boca Grande and has recently added cruises to The Edison & Ford Winter Estates on the Caloosahatchee as well as this cruise to Pine Island. These are excellent opportunities for family and neighborhood outings to learn about the history of Southwest Florida and enjoy a day on the water.

35 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 2011Taste Of The Islands To Offer Great MusicCROWs 30th Annual Taste of the Islands, presented by Edison National Bank/Bank of the Islands, comes to the Sanibel Community Park on Sunday, November 13 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. The happening promises not only a variety of food delights, but great music will be offered as well. The Captiva Band is the headliner. This group of blues and rock musicians has its roots on the islands, as the name implies. Their music is a mix of familiar covers and original pieces. Marty Stokes was originally raised on the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. He plays guitar and is the core of the band. With Todd Haut on bass, Carv Clauson on drums, Jennifer Mazziotti on sax and vocals, Paul Brewer on keyboards, the group will be joined by vocalist Summer Kilgore at this special appearance. This talented ensemble will bring a real treat for the ears and toes (for tapping) while taste buds are relishing their own treats. It promises to be a performance not to be missed. Opening the event will be Riverside, a Southwest Florida band that will be familiar to many, as they have played a lot of different locales in the area. They play a spectrum of music from classic rock of the s, s and s, to high-energy dance music, to rhythm and blues, to reggae and beyond. They cover such favorite musicians as the Doobie Brothers, The Eagles, Georgia Satellites, Tom Petty, Ray Charles, Bob Marley, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Billy Joel. Music at the Taste promises to offer serious competition to the food and round out an afternoon of delights for all of the senses. The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) depends on the annual Taste of the Islands to continue its mission of saving wildlife through compassion, care and education.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 201136 Book ReviewCiceroby Max FriedersdorfThe way a popular politician wins support has not really changed all that much in 2,000 years, according to an absorbing national bestseller entitled Cicero, The Life And Times Of Romes Greatest Politician. Written by British historian and author, Anthony Everitt, Cicero deals with the half century before Caesars assassination when Rome slid from republican government into dictatorship. Cicero, a magnificent orator and Romes leading attorney, had all the necessary talent for a politican: a glib tongue, a genius for manipulation and an opportunistic bent. A staunch defender of the Roman Republic to its last days, Cicero battled Julius Caesar, the empires most successful general, and his charismatic deputy Mark Antony. Cicero was in the Senate chamber that fateful day on the Ides of March, 44 B.C., when Caesar, despite good advice to stay away, attended a session only to be stabbed to death by Brutus and Cassius and a swarm of co-conspirators. Cicero supported the assassination but disagreed with Brutus that Antony should be spared. Antony was stopped at the Senate entrance on the pretext of a conversation as Caesar walked ahead to his death. The Ides of March was a fine deed, but half done, Cicero commented later. A pity you didnt invite me to dinner on the Ides of March! Let me tell you, there would have been no leftovers, Cicero added. Antony escaped, went to ground, and reappeared with an army, plunging Rome into civil war. Antony finally defeated Republic loyalist armies under Brutus and Cassius, who both committed suicide. Now in his late thirties, Antony was a handsome man, built like a bull and, according to Cicero, as strong as a gladiator. A hard drinker with a taste acquired as a young man for bad company, Antony, a good soldier, was popular with his men. There was no clemency for Cicero. Antony placed his name on a proscribed (murder) list along with 300 other senators and political opponents. Cicero was hunted down by bounty hunters as he fled to the Italian coast. He lost his head and hands which were nailed to the Speakers Platform in Romes Forum. For the next 10 years, Antony was supreme ruler of the eastern provinces of the Roman empire, while Caesars teenaged grand nephew, Octavian, ruled the western portion, including Rome itself. Inevitably they clashed, and Antony, who had spent most of the decade in the arms of Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, was defeated in the sea battle at Actium in 31 B.C. Antony and his queen committed suicide in Alexandria. Octavian, the last man standing, became the new Caesar, unchallenged Emperor of Rome. Acclaimed as the best book of the year in England, Cicero has been reprinted in paperback in the U.S., winning wide plaudits as a superb job of bringing the last days of the Roman Republic to life.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 20114B Rotary Dictionary DayIt was Rotary Dictionary Day throughout Lee County October 7, including at The Sanibel School. Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club members Lee Almas, Warner Byrum, Scot Congress, Rev. John Danner, Frank Hagan, Robert Monk, Club President Joel Ospa, and Alex Werner himself a retired school principal distributed free dictionaries to the two third-grade classes at the school. This is part of our worldwide organizations goal of improving literacy for all children, said Werner, who served as speaker in the classes. Ospa, when he announced the date for this years event, said in a news release that the dictionary distribution honored Rotary Internationals commitment toward encouraging the full potential of literacy around the globe. To be literate, no matter what the language, is the foundation of education. The ability to read and write opens the doors to cultural and educational experiences beyond ones own personal knowledge and challenges and stretches individuals to grow and think. Fifty-eight Sanibel School children seemed excited to get their brand new copy of Websters Student Dictionary. Also available for students was Websters Worldwide Dictionary for English/Spanish and Spanish/English, although there were no students who required that volume. The dictionaries are practically encyclopedias or almanacs, they contain so much reference information, including geography, history, sign language, Braille, information on the planets, and a calendar. According to both third grade teachers, Ranae Atkinson and Annie Franke, learning to use a dictionary properly is a third-grade skill. We focus on definitions of words that have multiple meanings, what are the parts of speech and how to find that information, Franke explained. We use them quite regularly during reading instruction. Atkinson said the children will likely take the Rotarys dictionaries home. Over the years we have collected a number of dictionaries for class, Atkinson said. The dictionaries are very similar, so when we use them in class the students can go home and compare. Its a great thing for them to have at home to use as a resource. Principal Barbara Von Harten said its easy to see how much the children love the dictionaries and the visit from the Rotarians. Third-grade teacher Annie Franke, at left, with her third-grade students, their dictionaries, Rotary Club members, and Principa l Barbara Von Harten (center) Ranae Atkinson (at left) with her third-grade class and their new dictionaries, Rotary Club members, and Principal Barbara Von Harten (at right) Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellJob well done! Thats what SanibelCaptiva Rotarians are saying to Joel Ospa, current president of the club. It was the second club assembly under the leadership of Joel since his inauguration as president, and he made sure he put together a program that would inform club members on the current financial position of the club, fundraising activities, a list of club donations year-to-date and a chart of giving for the last five years. Joels PowerPoint presentation of charts and graphs certainly got the attention of club members.continued on page 5B Joel Ospa


ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 20115B From page 4BRotary HappeningsThe 2011 Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair income and expenses provided an understanding of how the different income categories performed. Who would have thought that when Jack Luiszer added the silent auction to the fair just a few years ago that it would generate almost $10,000 of the gross income of $107,709, last year. Looking at the expense side of the fair provides the opportunity to examine and seek ideas from club members on how to cut expenses, if possible, or how to get more bang for our bucks. Expenses seem to go up each year but our Arts and Crafts Chair Robert Monk and his crackerjack Rotary team are continuously mindful that the more money they spend on producing and marketing the fair, the less money the club will be able to put into its trust fund giving program. The 2011 Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Arts and Crafts Fair netted $70,844 and so far this year, the club has donated $32,000 to a variety of Rotary projects/ programs and a plethora of nonprofit organizations in our community. Another one of Joels charts broke down San-Cap Rotary donation categories for a five-year period from 2006 to 2011. Titled categories were water projects, medical, international relief, environment, education, children and other. The largest contributions went toward education and the largest donation was the clubs five-year pledge to the Sanibel School Foundations Building Fund. As for this years fundraiser, Tony Gropp 2012 Rotary Arts and Crafts Fair artist relations chair, reported that booth applications for the February fair are right on target. John Grey, the cubs new community service project chair, took a few moments to review some of our up-coming activities in the community: parking, parking, parking, and more parking; Luminary night and 12-Baskets. Guests are always welcome at SanibelCaptiva Rotary weekly meetings at 7 a.m. at the Beachview Restaurant, Sanibel. Upcoming speakers are: October 21 Sanibel Chief of Police Bill Tomlinson, October 29 Rotary District 6960 Water Project Chair Ron Myers, November 4 Sanibel Bike Clubs Tom Sharbaugh, and on November 11 Special Guest Speaker for Veterans Day Cmdr.

ANSWERS PGA TipsHow To Get More Distanceby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalWhen I teach golf lessons every day, I think the most-asked question is, How do I get more distance? The question is a complicated one, so I thought Id share a few ideas and a few tips: 1. Create more clubhead speed. Clubhead speed equals distance, plain and simple. Now, how do you get more? One of the best drills I have ever seen is to take a golf club and split your hands about three inches apart on the grip so your bottom hand is almost to the end of the grip near the shaft and your top hand is at the very top. Now take some practice swings with your hands split apart; you will feel the club rotate much more than you ever have before. Then put your hands together normally and make a strike, feeling like your hands are still split apart. I bet you hit the first shot crisply and further than ever! 2. Widen and lengthen your swing arc. At the top of your swing try to have your thumbs as far away from your back ear as possible. Golfers who lose distance often collapse their arms at the top of their swing so they could almost put their thumbs in their back ear. When we widen and lengthen the swing arc by getting the thumbs away from the back ear, we increase the distance the club is swung, thus creating more speed. 3. Make contact in the center of the clubface. Believe it or not, this simple tip will get you more distance than any other. Miss hits off the toe or heel of the club will cost you more distance than anything. Clean the clubface off and make a few strikes. Then look at the clubface and see where you are hitting the ball. Concentrate on hitting it in the center. 4. Improve the angle of approach of the club. If the club is coming down into the ball steeply, it creates a lot of backspin. Backspin lessens distance. If you make those marks on the top and/or toe of your driver, you are coming in too steeply. Try a few baseball swings to get your angle of approach more parallel to the ground. Baseball swings are where you pretend the golf ball is teed up about chest high and swing around yourself more. Stop by the golf shop and have one of our golf professionals at The Dunes explain the ways to increase your distance to improve your game and allow you to hit the big drive!

Sanibel Youth Soccer Sanibel Youth Soccer MidSeason ReportThe 2011 Sanibel Youth Soccer season has hit the ground running with 185 players from ages four through 14. As the season hits its midpoint, Liverpool and Chelsea top the standings in U10 but a strong final run is expected from both Man U and Man City. Arsenal and Newcastle are still in the running, however, as evidenced by Arsenals strong outing against Man U last Friday. In the U12 Division no game has been settled by more than two goals but Barcelona looks to be slipping away from the pack behind strong play from Alexander Goss, Jacob Lemmon and Julia Holston. This weeks matchup between Barcelona and Madrid will be telling as coaches Andre (Sandbag) Arensman and Jim McCallion look to avenge a one-goal loss on opening night. In the U15 Division Barcelona leads Madrid but rumors of a brewing blockbuster trade may make this season-long derby a fight to the finish. The action all takes place on Friday nights beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the City of Sanibel fields on San-Cap Road.

11B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 2011Chaos Reigns In Red Sox Nationby Ed FrankWhat a mess. What chaos. What a fiasco. These descriptions and much more describe the sorry condition of the Boston Red Sox. And you can bet that no one is enjoying this more than the management and ownership of the rival New York Yankees. The tangle of confusion began when field manager Terry Francona was forced out after the Red Sox September freefall that resulted in the worst collapse in baseball history. Within days of Franconas departure, Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein followed out the door to take over the baseball operations of the downtrodden Chicago Cubs. At press time earlier this week, the details of Epsteins $15 million package with the Cubs had not been disclosed. Chicago must compensate Boston with cash or players as Epstein has one year left on his Red Sox contract. Then it was learned that Red Sox starting pitchers Jon Lester, Josh Beckett and John Lackey had been drinking beer and eating fried chicken in the clubhouse during game days they were not pitching instead of supporting the team from the dugout. It was the wrong thing to do, admitted Lester in an interview Monday in the Boston Globe. Theres a perception out there that we were up there getting hammered and that wasnt the case. Yes, I should have been on the bench more, he said. The disclosure of eating and drinking in the clubhouse during games adds credence to remarks by Francona that he didnt believe his players were pulling for each other this season as in the past. Finally, adding further to the Red Sox Nation turmoil, were remarks by popular nine-year Boston veteran David Ortiz that he wouldnt mind being traded to the Yankees. The fervent Red Sox fans, still irate about the late-season collapse of their beloved team (the 2011 Red Sox are the first team in baseball history to fail to reach post-season play with a nine-game lead in September), are calling for major changes on the field and in the front office. With Francona and Epstein gone, theres no doubt that Boston will have a new look when they assemble here in their new spring training complex come February. Between now and then, however, Red Sox management has much to do to calm Bostons troubled waters. Everblades Open Season with Split The Florida Everblades opened their 14th hockey season last weekend with a split against the Gwinnett Gladiators. Their opening night 3-2 win at Germain Arena was followed by a 2-1, 11th round shootout loss on Saturday. The local team is on the road for the next three weeks for nine games on foreign ice at Elmira, Trenton, Reading, Greenville, Gwinnett, and South Carolina. They do not return to Germain until November 9 when they host Wheeling for three games. Former Miracle Brian Dozier Named Twins Minor League Player of the Year Infielder Brian Dozier, who started the 2011 season with the Class A Fort Myers Miracle baseball team, last week was named the Minnesota Twins Minor League Player of the Year. In 49 games with the Miracle, the 24-year-old Dozier batted .322 along with 32 runs scored and 13 steals before being promoted to Double-A New Britain in June. He continued his hot streak at the higher level where he hit .318 in 78 games with the Rock Cats. Dozier was an eighth round draft selection by the Twins in 2009 out of the University of Southern Mississippi. Who Invented Air Conditioning?by Bryan HayesIt is unclear who is the rightful inventor of air conditioning or refrigeration. If you live in Florida you may believe that John Gorrie is the clear choice. However, if youre the CEO of Carrier Corporation, you probably have a different opinion. Allow me to explain. The modern history of air conditioning begins with Gorrie, who was a physician and scientist in Florida in the 1850s. Gorrie relocated to Florida from South Carolina to conduct medical research on tropical diseases. He believed that it was the bad air that caused these diseases and suggested that swamps should be drained to dry out the air. He also started to cool hospital rooms. To do this, Gorrie was using basins filled with ice and suspended from the ceilings. As the ice would melt it would absorb heat, therefore reducing the temperature in the space. Since Gorrie had to have real ice brought in from the north, he began experimenting with making artificial ice, since real ice was so expensive.continued on page 12B Dunes Womens 4.0 Tennis Team Ready For SeasonThe Dunes Womens 4.0 Tennis Team will kick off its season on October 20.

Mary Lou Bailey Diane Stocks Lomano, Nicholson & Associate Team Mike McMurray and Trevor Nette Team Superior InteriorsFabulous Focal Pointsby Cindy MalszyckiSimply stated, every room in your home needs some sort of fabulous design focal point. If your room is lacking a focal point, then one of your first design steps should be to create one. Often rooms include some feature or furnishing that makes a natural focal point. The table or buffet in the dining room, the bed in a bedroom, the desk in a library or den is usually the most noticeable feature and the logical candidate for being emphasized. But something different in the way of decorating is one of todays status symbols and the result is an anything goes attitude toward emphasis. Huge paintings, supersized graphics of all sorts ,and sizeable pieces of sculpture are high on the status list at the moment, and can be used as focal points themselves or to add to the excitement of an emphasized area. Conversational areas, designed with avant garde furniture and made of innovative materials are sure to be scene-stealers. Unusual fabrics, either vividly colored or strikingly patterned, can be used for emphasis, and a dramatic area rug is one way of setting off or highlighting any specific part of a room. Bold, bright colors, spectacular patterns, anything thats new or unique are all fun to use, but remember emphasis in design should be just that. One center of interest is usually enough; only a very large room is improved by more. If too many areas compete for attention, none will succeed in claiming it. Cindy Malszycki is an interior decorator on Sanibel. She can be reached at cindy@decden.net. From page 11BAir ConditioningHe experimented with different processes and came up with something that worked. Once Gorrie realized his discovery, he filed a patent for his invention. On May 6, 1851, he received patent No. 8080 to develop a machine that would make ice. But when he began seeking financing for manufacturing the machine, the then powerful ice lobbyists up north had a different feeling. Ice shipping, especially to the south during the summer was a profitable business back then. People used ice to fill their ice boxes where they stored food. Ice shippers would chip off huge slabs of ice from the north and bring them onshore for distribution. Not willing to share the business, they did all they could to discredit Gorrie and his invention. They publicly made fun of his invention. As a result, Gorries dream was never realized. He died in poverty, sadness and seclusion on June 29, 1855 and was buried in Gorrie Square in Apalachicola, Florida where he now has a museum and a monument dedicated to him. Twenty years later, another man was born. For Part 2, check out next weeks article. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

they are discretionary beneficiaries? This depends largely on the family relationships and how Barry and Linda view their children (and their spouses!). These issues should not be overwhelming, but they need to be addressed in such a way that the client can digest them and come up with a solution that is best for his or her own family situation. This is just one example and may or may not apply to your circumstance. But my point is that there are a number of different choices with almost every decision in every estate plan, each of which might end up with a different answer than what you might have first thought provided your attorney takes you through your options systemically and understandably. Once you review your plan this way, you may discover what you REALLY want and adjust your plan accordingly. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

C a ll : 239-425-9379 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My fouryear-old daughter is now in preschool. She seems to be having some difficulty holding her pencil correctly. She also holds her spoon and fork incorrectly. I thought she would grow out of this but she hasnt. How can I help her? Alyssa M., Sanibel, Florida Alyssa, By age four, most children can cut across a piece of paper with child-sized scissors, draw or copy a vertical line and a complete circle, and use a fork/spoon correctly. Fine motor skills, which are used in holding and using writing and eating utensils properly, may develop a bit later in some children. Its possible that your daughters fine motor development may be slightly delayed. There are stages of development for a correct pencil grasp. First we see toddlers using a fisted grasp when they first attempt to write with a crayon. If you look carefully at them you will see that they are actually moving from the shoulder to move the crayon across the paper. The next stage is a palmar grasp where you see the pencil lies across the palm of the hand and your childs elbow is held out to the side a bit. Children then move to a five-fingered grasp to hold a writing utensil and then finally, typically, at age five or six, they will be able to use a standard three-fingered or tripod grasp. Their body movement at this point goes from the shoulders and arms to the wrist and finally the fingers, which at ages five and six, are strong enough to hold the writing utensil correctly and without tiring easily. You may see your child switching between pencil grasps. As the shoulder and arm muscles become stronger and steadier, your child should switch less and less. Good control of the pencil for handwriting will only come as the finger muscles become stronger. Some children will need more time and practice to develop their shoulder, core, and finger muscles. A trip to the park would provide some easy things to do to help develop the shoulder muscles. Climbing, pulling up and pushing movements are excellent actions for development. A jungle gym or climbing structure is a great place for kids to exercise their muscles. To develop the fine motor and finger strength to grasp and write correctly, consider working with play dough by rolling it, pinching it, pounding it to make a variety of shaped items. You will be giving the hands and fingers a great workout. Other activities to help develop hand and finger strength are using a hole punch and stapler, cooking projects, especially with batter or dough, playing with construction tools (hammer, saw, etc. at childs developmental level), playing with pop beads, clothespins, large tongs, stress balls, squeezy toys, and buttoning and snapping. Even though these activities look like play they will benefit your child immensely. Play is actually how children work and learn and the best way for them to develop. 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.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 201118B Post Office Fighting Breast CancerLaura Ball, sales and services associate at the Sanibel Post Office, is pitching in a little extra for the Post Offices contribution to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Along with all the nations post offices, Sanibels is offering the same deal on the special breast cancer awareness stamp: anyone who buys two sheets gets a pink wristband. But on Sanibel, thanks to Ball, if you buy three sheets your name is entered into a drawing for one of her original paintings, Royal Terns. We want to get our island excited and involved, Ball said. Thats why I donated the painting. She did the same thing last year during Breast Cancer Awareness Month when she donated a painting of a yellow crown night heron. Last year, the Sanibel Post Office ranked sixth in the country in sales, raising about $13,000 for breast cancer research. Acting Postmaster Debbie Howard said Sanibel is currently in ninth place in the State of Florida and has sold about 5,800 stamps so far. Marco Island is ahead of us right now, Ball said a very motivating factor for her and colleagues Rick Intveld and Jonelle Durazzo, who died her hair pink for the cause. Howard said she is proud of her staff. We have wonderful clerks who go over and beyond their duties, she stated. Its the best crew I ever worked with. It was their idea to re-do our lobby all in pink. So remember to get to the post office before October 31 to see the lobby, buy your stamps, and thank the staff.

In addition to its delivery strengths, the U.S. Postal Service is making sure USPS is the preferred shipper for packages traveling the returns lane as well. The Postal Service has launched a new group of shipping choices under the umbrella of USPS Returns. The new options, including web-based label printing, enhanced tracking and streamlined payment, will speed start-up and make it easier for online retailers to use the Postal Service for returns. With e-commerce sales expected to continue to grow 10 percent annually over the next few years, the postal service is offering online merchants an easier way to return.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 201120B Dr. DaveOrgan Donationby Dr. Dave HepburnIt can be hard to think about tossing your carcass on the scrap heap of life, but were all going to do it unless youre Dick Clark or Clark Kent or Kent the local Vampire. But why destroy it all? Being an organ donor is, obviously, an altruistic, generous and worthwhile act that helps those who, through no fault of their own, need to borrow some of your leftovers. While more and more potential donors are showing their kind human nature by registering, there are some who are still reticent. It is, thus, important to clear up some myths so you have no excuses not to exercise this final act of benevolence. Myth: Im too old to donate. Nobody would want my organs. Fact: This is true if youre 362. Otherwise theres no defined cutoff age for donating organs. Organs have been successfully transplanted from donors in their 70s and 80s. The decision to use your organs is based on strict medical criteria, not age. Myth: Organ donation is against my religion. Fact: Organ donation is consistent with the beliefs of most religions. This includes Catholicism, Protestantism, Islam, most branches of Judaism, Southern Satanism and New York Rangerism, though nobody is keen in obtaining organs of that last church. Apparently there are a lot of spleens, but not a lot of hearts. Myth: If I agree to donate my organs, the hospital staff wont work as hard to save my life. Fact: That depends on if youre the guy who ticketed my car last week or are responsible for a Nancy Grace wardrobe malfunction. Unless you fit that category, doctors work as hard as we can to save your life, not someone elses. Saving life and golf is what we are all about in the first place. In fact, we never even know or care if you are a donor or not when we stick duct tape on your aorta or whatever. Hopefully the day will come when we just assume that everyone is a donor anyway. Myth: Maybe I wont really be dead when they sign my death certificate. Fact: And maybe you will. Or maybe youre really a zombie or a senator. In fact, people who have agreed to organ donation are given more tests to determine that theyre truly dead than are those who havent agreed to organ donation. No doubt, its nice to know youre really dead when you are, given that most people hate to wake up dead. Myth: An open-casket funeral isnt an option for people who have donated organs or tissues. Fact: Organ and tissue donation doesnt interfere with having an open-casket funeral. Because the donor is clothed and lying on his or her back in the casket, no one can see any difference. You can still leave your casket wide open so you can see who really did show up at your funeral. They will cry over your casket just as loudly as they would should you have not donated. They will cry louder if you donated organs to the transplant folks and the trust fund to Cats Unlimited. Myth: They can use baboon or pig hearts. Fact: Nope. The baboons still want them and arent giving them up without a fight. Baby Fae included, there is nobody running about with baboon bits beating in their breast, though I know of several women who think men are more pig than most pigs. To you women I say, That is a juvenile statement and your mother wears army boots. Myth: Im not in the best of health. Nobody would want my organs or tissues. Fact: Wow, lots of Rangers fans, I see. The decision to use an organ is based on strict medical criteria and unless youre a strict medical criteriaologist, dont make that decision for someone else. Perhaps your liver is no good but your drinking arm is in fine shape. Not your call. Myth: Rich and famous people go to the top of the list when they need a donor organ. Fact: Which is why you should not consult with me prior to investing. Invest as I do and youre sure not be at the top of anyones rich list. But I believe that I am still at the top of the list because I am famous to my dog, Kent. Like the column? Youll LOVE the book the Doctor is In(sane), available at Sanibel Island Bookshop.

Matt Mitchell Landing a big sh from the beach can be hard on the sh. Dragging a sh up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the sh. Hold the sh in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a sh before release the better for the sh. If you want a picture with the sh, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the sh while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back are forth so water goes over its gills. The sh will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on shing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a shing license to sh from shore.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 201122B 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 went to a doctor because I felt terrible. He ordered a few tests and later told me that I had an immune system disease and ordered more tests. When I went back he just talked and talked, and I didnt know anything more when I left than I did when I first went. Why do doctors talk like that when they must know their patients dont have the faintest idea what they are talking about? Rebecca Dear Rebecca, I would not generalize to say all physicians talk to patients in the way your physician spoke to you. Ask your physician questions about what you do not understand. The only way he/she knows is if you ask. Look at it this way; it is a good thing that your physician tries to explain things to you so you are starting in a very good place. Pryce Dear Rebecca, Doctors, lawyers and many other professionals have their own lingo. They are so accustomed to talking to people similar to themselves that they cannot see or refuse to see when some of their patients eyes cloud over. These same professionals are not nearly as successful as their peers who can talk on the level of their patients or clients and rarely get the desired results they are working toward. Before you leave or during the consultation interrupt them and tell them, I am sorry but I do not understand what you are saying.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: My fatherin-law lives near us and he is calling constantly, dropping by without warning, and invites himself to dinner several times a week. I know he is lonely, but he needs to find other outlets. How can we gently let him know this?A: There is not really a gentle way other than to be firm. Tell him you are only available certain times and be clear when those times are. Make it clear that you have other people to be with as well and you have other plans. Make a schedule that is realistic for you. Discuss a day/ time that works for you and your family for him to come visit. That way he will feel included without getting his feelings hurt. Research what senior citizen programs exist in your community and suggest that he seek out some outlets for himself. He would have the opportunity to meet other seniors and this would occupy his days in a healthy way. Make sure that your husband is in agreement and both of you can talk with your father-in-law together and make sure the boundary is clear. That way he will feel included without getting his feelings hurt and you all can be more relaxed and still enjoy one another.Dr. Clancy is a licensed mental health therapist, certified hypnotherapist, life coach, author and public speaker.

23B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 21, 2011deaRPharmacistAre Vitamins Helping Or Hurting You? by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I see on the news that taking vitamins can be dangerous for my health. Since I read your column weekly, I know that you like vitamins, and that they help reduce side effects in some cases. Does this study change your position? TC, Gainesville, Florida No, it just annoys me that snippets about the Archives of Internal Medicine study get any media coverage at all. The news that multivitamins, vitamin B6, folic acid, iron, magnesium, zinc and copper might hasten our death is just ridiculous. Do you really think vitamins and minerals are suddenly bad for you? By that token, you would have to believe that eating vegetables, fruits, and nuts are bad too, because they contain the same nutrients as those proposed to be deadly in this study! Cmon people! Its sad when Mother Nature is questioned, and vitamins are condemned based on weak and inconclusive statistics, yet other therapies that literally include myocardial infarction as a side effect remain on the market. This scary fact doesnt get any airtime. Lets take a closer look: Point #1: The conclusions drawn were not based upon an actual clinical trial that offered a double-blind, placebo controlled analysis. The conclusion was drawn from data that tracked 38,722 older women who said they took vitamins for 20 years. Key word said. Point #2: University of Minnesota researchers had women fill out questionnaires. The women said they took vitamins. Thats it! Should scientists draw sweeping conclusions about mortality based on questionnaires? The death rate could be due to any number of factors. Point #3: Supplement takers experienced an average of 2.4 percent increased risk of dying over the course of two decades, compared with women who didnt take supplements; adjustments were made for age and caloric intake. Ill spare you the number details here, but there was only a one percent difference between death rates for the two groups. You can scare more people by manipulating statistics and hyping a .4 percent increase in death. Boo! Point #4: What was their health status? What was the baseline health status? Remember their beginning age back in 1986 was 62 years old. Im sure some of them were virtual crock pots of disease. What if these ladies failed to take vitamins in their youthful years, or took poor quality ones? Did they exercise in their youth? What was their cholesterol, insulin, Lp(a) and CRP levels? Who knows? Well-informed scientists would never assign sole blame to vitamins when the data is being extracted from seniors who almost always have multiple health concerns and take numerous prescription drugs. Theres no linear connection, do you see how silly this all is?! Point #5: Nutritional status was never objectively evaluated. How did they eat? Did they smoke? For all we know they were taking supplements in-between cheeseburgers and fries, rather than part of a healthy well-balanced diet. Point #6: What was their medication profile like? I suspect there was a lot of drug mugging going on! These ladies could very well have been so nutritionally depleted that they died of some other reason. Not one of the participants was ever given a Cardio-ION, Genova or SpectraCell blood test to determine baseline micronutrient status. Ever. Lets focus on vitamin B6 deficiency for example. Over 150 drugs rob your body of that. Run low of B6 and your levels of toxic homocysteine will climb, raising risk for hypertension, heart attack and stroke! So how did these scientists sort out whether these elderly women were dreadfully deficient of a particular vitamin, or died from taking one? They didnt. One more point. I firmly believe that its best to get nutrients from eating living plant-based foods, and juicing every day, using dietary supplements to fill the gaps. Dietary supplements are regulated by the DSHEA Act of 1994, through the FDA, and they are intended to support adequate nutrition, not to prevent disease. Ask your health care provider what is right for you based on your activities, age, gender, medication profile and dietary habits. And dont base your health care regimen on isolated studies look at the body of evidence that supports a particular nutrient.
