But really it was so he could meet his buddies on Saturday afternoon for a few brews and some stimulating conversation. On Saturday, November 5, Kip, Robin, and David will help their dad turn back the clock by escorting him back to that same room at George and Wendys Corner Grill (formerly the Coconut Grove and a bunch of other names) for a celebration of his entry into his 80th year on the planet 40 of them on Sanibel Island. Kip, Robin, and David invite anyone who has had the good fortune or maybe misfortune of interacting with their dad over the years to drop by George and Wendys any time from 4 to 9 p.m. to extend birthday wishes, assist with brew disposal, and provide conversation, stimulating or otherwise. To help Buntrock feel comfortable in George and Wendys newly decorated Billiard Lounge surroundings, his sonin-law Don Lee will run eight person double-elimination 8-ball tournaments for all who choose to participate. Therell be food and drink specials and cousin Kip Johnsons lovely wife Carol is creating a cake.

Part of what makes Sanibel a sanctuary for people is that a lot of us get how important it is to pause in life and take time to just enjoy being with one another, Event Chair Salli Kirkland said. This event has a country-western theme and will be particularly low key (broken-in jeans are the preferred attire) and the evening will offer entertainment for everyone. For those who hope to start burning some extra calories in preparation for Thanksgiving Day, there will be countrywestern music by a DJ along with linedancing instruction. Not only does line dancing get your heart rate up, the fact that you dont need a heart throb or partner to participate makes it a great group social and physical activity. Aspiring card sharps will have their own space for an informal Texas Holdem tournament during which no houses will be won or sold but modest prizes will be awarded. Admission is $10 for Community House members and $15 for guests; ticket price includes sodas and water. Whether you are a visitor, snowbird or local, you are part of Sanibel and are welcome to join the party. Alcoholic beverages and snacks will be available. Community House memberships are $35 single and $65 family, with all proceeds going to the nonprofit whose mission is to foster the spirit and sense of community that makes Sanibel a sanctuary for both wildlife and humans. Joining the Community House also ensures you get the inside local scoop and discounts on many upcoming events. The Community House is located at 2173 Periwinkle Way. Tickets are available prior to the event and at the door. For more information about this event, log on to www.sanibelcommunityhouse. net or call 472-2155. Complimentary Blood Pressure Screening The Sanibel Fire District will offer complimentary blood pressure screening at the Sanibel Recreation Center on Monday, November 7, from 9 a.m. until noon. High blood pressure increases the risk of stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease and even blindness in some cases. The Sanibel Fire Districts complimentary screenings are offered as a first step in determining if further examination by a health care professional is necessary. The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Daily, weekly, semi-annual and annual memberships are available. For more information, call 472-0345 or visit www. mysanibel.com. Bike Path Extension A Nice AdditionCitizens and visitors alike can now enjoy the culture and history of the city by bicycle or on foot thanks to the recently completed Dunlop Road path. Winding through the beautiful city property, the path stops at the library, city hall, BIG ARTS, and the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village before heading out Wooster Lane. The plan chosen to construct the path was the leat expensive and least invasive of four possibilities. Now perhaps traffic will be alleviated in one of the citys busiest traffic areas.

It will be held on the grounds of Sanibel City Hall (800 Dunlop Road) with military music beginning at 10:45 a.m. with the ceremony starting at 10:55 a.m.. MOAA Chapter President Doug Quelch will officiate with introductions of honored guests. Remarks will be made by Mayor Kevin Ruane. The Veterans Day address will be given by Brigadier General John Bathke, U.S. Air National Guard (Ret.). A special poem will be read by Dean Drobnyk and Danny Shuster of the City of Sanibel Recreation Department After-School Program. The Sanibel Community Band (Maestro Donald Knowland conducting) will provide the music and Fred Nordstrom will lead a sing-along of patriotic songs. For those who have never attended, one of the most touching aspects of the ceremony is Remembrances, when veterans recall their military experiences and how they and others were affected by them. Any veteran who wishes to participate is welcome to do so. Council Gives School Car Wash A One-Time Passby Anne MitchellIt seemed like a simple request, a typical fundraising car wash by students to raise money for their lacrosse team on Saturday. The problem was that the proposed location Bank of the Islands is in the Sanibel River basin and the runoff would go straight into the river, according to Sanibels Natural Resources Director Rob Loflin. Jack Luft made the request to the city council Tuesday on behalf of a dozen Sanibel students who attend Fort Myers High School. Non-varsity sports are not funded in schools, so they must raise $7,000 to cover lacrosse for the year. A car wash, Luft said, could generate $700 to $1,000. He said the students would use what he called phosphate-free, biodegradable liquid soap that is so benign, its safe enough to drink. Loflin said, It is state-listed as impaired. Its not about the soap. It takes the dust and oil and grease off the vehicles. When you have a large volume operation the water goes into a culvert pipe directly into the Sanibel River. Luft challenged Loflins opinion that runoff could harm the river. He said the runoff would be the same as what happens when it rains and that Loflin had no records to support his opinion. After Luft became angry, Mayor Kevin Ruane commented, ...keep your passion contained. However, Luft was given a one-time only exemption after agreeing to place straw bales around the site to help absorb the runoff, as is done on construction sites. The vote was 4-1 with Councilman Marty Harrity opposed, saying it would set a precedent. Luft, told he has to provide the straw, said no problem there were plenty of bales still around from the previous nights Halloween activities. The city council adopted the car wash policy nearly two years ago. Water quality protection is high on its list of priorities. Councilman Jim Jennings said he took part in many car washes and candy sales as a youngster and felt they were character building. And anyway, people washed their cars in their driveways. Dr. Bruce Neil, head of Sanibel Sea School, who was in the audience, was asked his opinion. He said, It probably would be more appropriate to do this in Fort Myers. Council Tries To Get To Grips With Town Center Conceptby Anne MitchellPublic sentiment seems to be a driving force in the citys efforts to revive the concept of a town square, but aligning citizens ideas with those of some 80 to 90 stakeholders is going to be a long haul. What is our vision? asked Councilman Marty Harrity. Is it something the people of Sanibel want? If the citizens dont buy into this its not going to happen. Council members say they are often encouraged by citizens to bring back a concept that was first raised in 2008, when the centrally located Nave property went on the market. After the city spent thousands on consultants to do studies and develop a plan, dissention and concern over one groups plan to add residential properties caused the city to abandon it. Also, the city had no plans to purchase the property. The Sanibel City Council on Tuesday talked about how some organizations such as the Community Association, BIG ARTS/Herb Strauss Theater and St. Michael and All Angels Church, all have growth issues. The Community Association is well under way with a $3.5 million renovation project. It makes sense, said Harrity, to try to bring all such interested parties together. He said he would meet with certain groups to sound out their needs. Right off the bat, Mayor Kevin Ruane said no city funds would be used. We are certainly not going to use public dollars to be the lead in this. However, he feels its the councils responsibility to spearhead the idea. He said the recreation center is a good example of the citizens coming together on a project. Just how to tackle the job of bringing all those interests together and seek a common ground is the city councils first big task. An area bounded roughly by Periwinkle Way, Dunlop Road, Palm Ridge Road and Tarpon Bay Road is the focus of the endeavor.continued on page 38

7 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 2011 MENS HAIRCUT $202340 Periwinkle Way Suite D1395-3800 Ding Darling Team Featured In Friends ForwardThe summer edition of Friends Forward profiled the work of the Summer Morning Monofilament Team and year-round Operation Scissors efforts at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge to keep island waterways clear of monofilament fishing line and other debris that endangers wildlife. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service publishes Friends Forward to keep refuge friends groups informed about important projects and work they are doing to support wildlife and the refuge system. We go out every Friday all year long and we cover not only the refuge itself but all refuge lands and islands, Buck Key, and pretty much cover both Sanibel and Captiva areas, said Doris Hardy, a longtime refuge volunteer who organizes and leads the team. Outside the refuge, team members take it upon themselves to clean up waterways where they live using their own kayaks, Hardy added. Our teams are usually no bigger than four. We are usually out for a minimum of three hours, she said. Jeff Combs, the ranger who is in charge of refuge volunteers, and the others have been 110 percent supportive as has the (Ding Darling Wildlife) Society, which has purchased new kayaks, boat hooks, scissors, and paddles. Every other Friday, a day when Wildlife Drive is closed, volunteers attack the mangrove wetlands to remove the nearly invisible monofilament fishing line that is so dangerous to the birds and other critters that become entangled in it. In the winter, more than 40 volunteers take turns at the task. In summer, a steady crew of three hits the kayaks. All the teams collect our findings, and I email them pictures of our catch of the day, said Hardy. In the past 12 months we gathered 97 lures, 77 bobbers, a fivegallon bucket of monofilament, 78 rubber hooks, 255 lead weights, plus a lot of other potentially harmful junk. We work in heat and humidity, not to mention nosee-ums, to remove monofilament and trash in an effort to keep our wildlife safe. This activity is from the heart. This is a much-needed program and saves the refuge considerable time andcontinued on page 21 A recent catch of the day culled from local waterways by refuge volunteers Kiwanis Club Focuses On ChildrenThe Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Clubs focus is on children. Kiwanis has a long tradition of assisting children on the islands. For the third year, Kiwanis has contributed $10,000 as the major sponsor of the financial assistance program and the New Years Eve community party at the City of Sanibel Recreation Center. Moneys raised go to island parents and island workers who need financial assistance so that their children can attend the after school program, fun days, holiday and summer day camps at the recreation center. Assistance is awarded on a sliding scale to applicants, who remain anonymous. Each applicant has ownership in the program. All moneys raised go to the program. Last years fundraising efforts totaled $50,100. For more information on the New Years Eve party, call the Sanibel Recreation Center at 472-0345. Kiwanians donate $10,000 to City of Sanibel Financial Assistance Program

9 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 2011 Zonta Announces MADE By US FairSubmitted by: Dalia Jakubauskas Area women will be raising funds and awareness for projects benefiting women both here and abroad at MADE by US: Womenmade Fashions, Food and Social Change Event. To be held on Saturday, November 19 at the UnitarianUniversalist Church of Fort Myers (UUCFM), 13411 Shire Lane, the affair will feature clothing, jewelry, food and more all made by local women. MADE by US will also include a fashion show and speakers from Beauty From Ashes, a faith-based organization ministering to victims of the sex industry; and Abuse Counseling and Treatment Inc., a service provider for survivors of domestic violence. Speakers from the Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships Inc. (HTAP), and Guatemalan Rural Adult and Children Education (GRACE), will also make presentations. HTAP combats human trafficking by educating young people about the crime, while GRACE is a UUCFM project dedicated to improving the lives of Guatemalan women and their families through education. The public can also see canvasses painted by area students for HTAPs ARTREACH project at the event. ARTREACH is designed to educate local children about the dangers of human trafficking through art and theater. The canvasses will be hanging at the church through the month of November. The event is the brainchild of Sanibel resident Gari Grant Lewis, who for years dreamed of putting on an event that showcased the talents of women. I have a degree in fashion design and have been producing and modeling for fashion shows for 20 years using retail stores, Lewis said. It was always my dream to use fashions women had designed and sewed themselves.Lewis and her sister, Dr. Genelle Grant, director for GRACE, had talked extensively about putting on an event that would raise awareness surrounding projects combating violence against women. The idea crystalized when she became a member of The Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva and a team member for the clubs service partner, HTAP, Lewis said.The fact that GRACE is also one of the clubs service partners seemed like a perfect fit, said Lewis. Dr. Grant is also involved with the Zonta Club of Fort Myers, which will be the main sponsor of the event. Zonta clubs around the world are dedicated to advancing the status of women both locally and internationally. In all, 32 women will be giving their energy to make MADE by US happen. The vendors will include 16 clothing and jewelry designers and four food booths. Purchases from the vendors will benefit the women directly but proceeds from ticket sales for the event will help HTAP and GRACE. Admission to the event, which will run from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m., is $20 for adults and $10 for students. Buy a ticket and get a $5 coupon good toward purchases from the vendors. Call Gari Grant Lewis at 395-2403 for tickets and more information.

These women bring a comprehensive program on Documents Every Woman Needs. While serving on the Serving Women on the Island (SWOTI) service team of the Zonta Club, they helped organize several other presenters: David Berger, a retired physician, and Rev. Cynthia Brasher, chaplin with the Lee Memorial Health System, who held a successful workshop at the Sanibel Library earlier this year. This program is designed for all women, to educate them on the documents they need and show them how to gather and organize essential paperwork and inform appropriate family members or care providers as to where those important documents are.

Matt MitchellThis week we experienced our first really big minus low tides of the winter season. These mega low tides showed sandbars and exposed grass flats I had not seen since last winter. I have always enjoyed fishing these super low tides as they really seem to bunch the fish up tight. Either back in small mangrove bays and natural creeks or out in the open sound, fishing the channels that run between the grass flats all these places produce fish on these lowest of low tides. Out in the open sound I spent my time working narrow deeper channels and the grass edges of these channels. Free-lined live shiners and shrimp caught trout after trout. Though there where not to many keepers in the mix, it was non-stop action. Switching it up to weedless soft plastic jigs, the action continued. The deeper channels held Spanish mackerel, jacks and ladyfish too. Sea trout season in our area is closed November and December for the annual spawn. This really makes no sense to me as all the trout I clean this time of year have no roe in them at all. Early spring seems to be the time that trout in this region are full of roe. The cooler clear water of winter will bring some of the best trout fishing of the year, although you will have to wait until January to keep one again. Deeper mangrove shorelines and channels with strong current in the 3to 5-footrange were a better bet for snook, redfish and even a few gag grouper. Shiners, pinfish and shrimp fished close to or right on the bottom caught these fish. The better bite for me this week came on the first hour or so of the low incoming tide. Chumming a few live shiners in these narrow creeks will let you know really quickly if its worthsticking around and if you have picked the right shoreline to be fishing. If the channel has feeding fish they will explode on the freebees. This is mixed bag fishing at its best with so many species balled up tight together. Out along the beaches this week, conditions finally laid down. Huge schools of Spanish mackerel could be found just on the outside of Blind Pass. After running from the Sanibel Lighthouse north one afternoon, I did not see on Spanish mackerel until I reached Blind Pass, then there was just acres of them feeding along with a few Kingfish crashing the party. After lots of reports on the news of red tide, I was pleasantly surprised not to see any dead fish out to three of four miles. Tripletail fishing was a little hit and miss with lots of small tripletail out there this week. After running hundreds of pots one afternoon, we ended up only catching a 12pounder and a 7-pounder. The crab buoys on which these fish rest are still kind of clean and this fishery will only get better and better over the next few months. I did have a report, though, this week of a an18-pound monster caught off of Fort Myers Beach in 21 feet og water. Live shrimp are the best choice of bait for sightfishing these tasty fish. Regulations on tripletail are two per angler per day with a 15-inch minimum length.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.

15 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 2011 Sanibel Captiva Sail & Power SquadronPictured is a Sanibel Captiva Sail & Power Squadron group happy to have navigated to their destination. Their success was due to completing Course 1 on How to Read a Chart and Course 2 on Global Positioning System (GPS). The GPS course will be given on November 12 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Sanibel Library. The instructor, Roger Heider, is a certified instructor, an engineer, and a boater familiar with area waters. With GPS your starting navigation is a chart. The GPS puts you in place on the chart. You then find your destination on the chart and connect the two. As you look at your initial course, you will notice some islands and shallows from the chart that will be in your way. You adjust your course to work around these hazards by selecting intermediate points called waypoints. You enter the latitude and longitude of these necessary waypoints into your GPS as well as your starting and destination locations. You now have a route, and your GPS, or GPS plotter screen, now provides you with a visual of the route to follow with bearings, distances, etc. Not only is this a must course for area waters, but it enables you to join the fun. To register via the internet go to www. usps.org/cgi-bin-nat/eddept/cfind.cgi For questions or computer problems call Roger Heider at 395-0959 or Tom Gillis at 472-3828. Aussie party, the Sanibel Captiva Sail & Power Squadron 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. Additional information and reservations, call Captiva Cruises at 472-5300.

The programs run from noon to 1 p.m. and are free with museum admission or membership. Guests are welcome to bring along a lunch to enjoy during the presentation. Popular Sanibel author Christine Lemmon will speak at the museum on November 11. The rest of the lineup this season includes: sea adventurer/ shell collector/photographer Rob Masino (December 9); shell and fossil expert/ collector Dr. Gary Schmelz (January 13); and shell collector/crafter Anne Joffe (February 10). Currently writing her next novel, Lemmon said the book will include an interior design theme pertaining to the restoration of the heart, soul and mind. It is set in Sanibel and San Francisco. Despite being the mother of three young children, Lemmon manages to find time to write for two hours a day five or six mornings a week. Theres something about those early hours before the sun that allows a person to block out the noise and distractions of this world and for things to become clear, she said. It also took discipline to reduce myself to one cup of coffee per day when I realized more cups do not make for better writing. Lemon has had a lifelong love for Sanibel and shells that started with yearly childhood visits to the island to spend time with her grandparents. Those memories, along with her current daily life here, have provided a wealth of stimuli for her novels. Ideas, quotes, concepts for my four books and now the one I am currently writing have come to me while wading in the water, biking or walking around the island, she said. After all these years, we still average sunsets once a week as a family, and I do believe that getting inspiration for writing is like putting a seashell to your ear and listening. Now that she has been in the writing business for several years, Lemmon can pass along a few pointers to budding novelists. Learn all you can about the ever-changingpublishing world, she suggested. Whereas once it was the dream of every author to sign on with a major New York Publishing house, it might now be wiser to consider the smaller presses or self-publishing. Getting published is as much of a process as writing the book. Enjoy the process and what you learn along the way and do not burn your manuscript just because you get 60 rejections. At that point, try a different publishing route. On December 9, Rob Masino will present photographs of live mollusks he found in Honduras, the Grenadines, and other Caribbean locations. He will also provide tips on how to best photograph these treasures of the sea. Dr. Gary Schmelz, who speaks on January 13, has led several BaileyMatthews Shell Museum excursions abroad, and on this afternoon he will allow his audience to experience the Wonder of the South Pacific Coral Reefs in crystal clear, colorful images. Shell Museum Board President Anne Joffe, who will speak February 10, has also traveled the world to collect shells, and she will highlight her recent shelling adventure to Guaymas, Mexico. For additional information, contact Shell Museum Public Programs Specialist Diane Thomas at dothomas@shellmuseum.org, or phone 395-2233. Sanibel author Christine Lemmon will discuss her novels and writing at The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum Friday Lunch Hour Series on November 11Turtle TracksThe Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation is sponsoring Turtle Tracks at the Nature Center at 9 a.m. on Thursdays. This interpretive program delves into the life cycle of the sea turtles that nest on the beaches. Participants start at the turtle exhibit and marine touch tank to learn about the life cycle of the loggerhead and then go to a beach site to discuss their nesting habitat and other fascinating marine life. Cost for this program is $5 for adults and free for children; a beach parking fee of $2 per car is necessary at the beach site. The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation monitors the sea turtle nests on Sanibel and Captiva. If you have questions about the Turtle Tracks program or the sea turtle research program, call the foundations Nature Center at 472-2329. Shell Museum To Host Introductory Meeting For Prospective VolunteersThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum will host an informational open house for prospective volunteers on November 14 from 9 to 10 a.m. Attendees will learn about the Shell Museums history and volunteer opportunities from public program specialist Diane Thomas. Light refreshments will be served, and guests are welcome to meet and talk with staff members and current volunteers about what openings are available and what those positions entail. There are volunteer opportunities for all ages in several areas, including clerical assistance, curating shell collections, working with youth programs and assisting visitors in the Great Hall. Anyone with an interest in learning more about becoming a Shell Museum volunteer should attend the open house or call Diane Thomas at 395-2233.

He was found in the Tanglewood development in South Fort Myers. The hawk was found in a backyard just laying on his side. When he arrived at CROW, staff found him alert and responsive although quite dehydrated. His body condition was fair, he just didnt want to stand, said CROW Wildlife Rehabilitator Robin Bast. We were thinking he might have a fracture. Staff took X-rays, but nothing untoward showed up. He did have deep pain and sensitivity in his leg, which is a good sign that his nerves are still working, Bast explained. We test for pain by using a hemostat, a surgical tool similar to forceps. We squeeze the animal gently, and he should feel it and pull back. If he doesnt, it means he cant feel it. The bird had neurological deficits when he came in; he was weak and not quite all there for some reason, according to Bast. There was no sign of outward injuries so we thought it was likely trauma that caused neurologic symptoms. Because the patient was so dehydrated, staff inserted an IO catheter (IO means interosseous, or inside the bone) to more quickly deliver fluids, as opposed to subcutaneous absorption. The IO method is much faster at getting fluids through the body. Staff ran some basic tests that are usually run on birds for bacteria, infection, and other problems. We found some unwanted bacteria in his gut, said Bast. That could have been responsible for part of his weakness. She put her patient on Baytril, an antibiotic, and started basic supportive care. It turned out that the birds right leg had the most issues. By the next day, he could move his left leg but could only grip with his right leg. He couldnt perch but was making some improvement nonetheless. Two days after his arrival at CROW, staff removed the catheter, as the hawk was hydrated enough to continue to care for him using subcutaneous and oral fluids. At this point he started being more eager to eat, said Bast. We were still hand-feeding him, but instead of us having to open his mouth and actually place the food in, he was grabbing for it. On September 26, the hawk was eating on his own quite well and also starting to perch on his own. He would fall off from time to time so he wasnt entirely with it, as Bast explained, but he was getting better. The patient completed his weeks round of antibiotics on the 27th. He stayed inside for one more day and then moved to one of the smaller outdoor flight cages. He was flying around really well out there so we decided to give him more space, Bast stated. We wanted him to gain energy and stretch those flight muscles. But it soon became clear that the hawk was feeling very stressed, according to Bast. We entered the cage two times a day to clean and feed him and he would show stressed behavior. He was ready to be free of his cage and was released October 4. I would have liked him to stay three or four more days to get stronger, but it was better for him to go than to be as stressed as he was, Bast explained. The bird was released in Tanglewood, where he was found. Bast was present for the release. I opened the carrier door and he didnt want to come out at first, Bast recounted. I pulled out the towel that was on the bottom of the carrier. Then he made a nice, strong flight down the block and up into a palm tree. That last flight you see of a healthy bird makes the rehabilitation effort all worth it.

Another word that came ashore, kink, as in a kink in your neck, was originally a sailors term for a twist in a line. The word govern is from the Latin gubernare, meaning to steer a ship. A gubernator, from which derives our modern word governor, was originally a ships helmsman. The word embark is of purely nautical origin, being from the Latin prefix in, plus barca (boat), hence to get or put in a boat. One of historys greatest naval commanders, Horatio Nelson, was constantly seasick. After 30 years at sea, he never overcame his seasickness. The term high seas means all the waters which are not the property of a particular country, that is, those beyond the three-mile limit. The word high indicates that the seas are public, just as a highway means a public way. 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.

21 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 2011 A Sanibel Sea School Primer On Red Tide Submitted by: Sanibel Sea SchoolSanibel and Captiva have recently experienced the first red tide event in several years. Red tide affects all of us in this region in many ways and the effects of red tide can be very severe. Fortunately the majority of this bloom has remained offshore and had little or no impact on the shorelines of our islands. The very premature (and perhaps overly optimistic) prediction on the future of this particular algal bloom is that it appears to be diminishing. For biologists, algal blooms like this are an opportunity to investigate and perhaps better understand the interesting dynamics of this complex marine phenomenon. Lets start with a brief refresher about Karenia brevis, the organism that causes red tide. These single-celled organisms are classified as protists. The protists are a difficult group to comprehend; however, a defining characteristic is that they are single-celled organisms. Some protists are plant-like and undergo photosynthesis; some are animal-like and obtain their nutrition by preying on other organisms. Two groups of plant-like protists are common in the marine waters of Southwest Florida: diatoms and dinoflagellates. Karenia brevis is a dinoflagellate. Many plant-like protists are found in ocean habitats and can be a dominant component of marine phytoplankton communities. Oceanic phytoplankton communities are vital to life as we know it on planet Earth. Although difficult to calculate, estimates of global atmospheric oxygen content indicate that over 50 percent of the oxygen in the atmosphere is created by photosynthesis from marine phytoplankton communities. These phytoplankton communities link nearly every living thing on this planet through the cycling of oxygen. The Gulf of Mexico and most oceanic water bodies are not big homogenous bodies of water. It would be convenient if they were, but they are not. They are composed of fairly distinct, adjacent groups of water arranged in complex three-dimensional patterns. Each of these small groups of water has fairly unique combinations of physical and chemical properties. These unique combinations allow different phytoplankton communities to flourish at any given time in any given place in the ocean. When the chemical and physical water properties are favorable, some phytoplankton communities can reproduce very rapidly and achieve very high population densities this growth pattern is known as a plankton bloom. Plankton blooms of K. brevis cause red tide. Nature is very complex. Natural communities are typically composed of many, many species that occupy a variety of niches and trophic levels. We really do not understand the processes at play in phytoplankton communities very well. We dont know what casues the favorable conditions that lead to most blooms, but we do know that in a red tide bloom, there are many other species of phytoplankton present. It appears that the red tide bloom of October 2011 is fragmenting and diminishing. We dont really know why, but here is a plausible explanation. The recent wind associated with our big storm fronts has stirred the oceans and suspended particles from the bottom. In the resuspension of these sediments, nutrients have been added to the water where the red tide bloom is this is really a change in the physical and chemical properties of that patch of water. Recent samples indicate that diatoms are growing very well, and diatom populations are blooming. It appears that non-harmful diatoms are now outcompeting K. brevis in that patch of water K. brevis so dominated previously. So, although far too early to be entirely accurate, it appears our islands might just be spared the ill effects of red tide because of a storm and some really interesting interplay between the physical and biological components in a patch of phytoplankton-laden water. One aspect of this particular bloom is clear. We need to a better understanding of phytoplankton community dynamics. They are crucial to our lives in Southwest Florida and to the lives of nearly all living things on Earth. Sanibel Sea School is a volunteer partner of the Florida Wildlife Research Institute; we go to these blooms to collect samples for analysis. We spend our time and money to help the State of Florida gather data to help advance the understanding of the rich marine community that supports us. Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to a world in which all people value, understand and care for the ocean.

Plant SmartEarleaf Acaciaby Gerri ReavesEarleaf acacia (Acacia auriculiformis) is an evergreen tree of up to 50 feet tall with a 25-foot spread and spikes of tiny yellow-orange flowers. The trees curious name derived from the ear-shaped seed pod that upon maturity splits open to reveal flat black seeds. But this pretty tree is no friend of South Florida. A native of Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia, it invades pinelands, scrub habitat, and hammocks, posing a significant threat to native plants, even rare ones. It is listed as a category-I invasive species by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council. Like many pests, this member of the pea family was introduced as an ornamental, arriving in Florida before 1932 and used to landscape streets. One popular book on landscaping published in the 1980s describes it as a favorite tree of many land developers for its fantastic growth and rock bottom purchase price. Its ability to grow six to eight feet in one growing season earns it the distinction of being an almost instant shade tree. Unfortunately, it adapts superbly to Floridas dry-wet seasons and can thrive in habitats with nutrient-poor soil. In addition, it fruits prolifically and the seeds are dispersed by birds. The flat, stiff crescent-shaped leaves are dark green and five to eight inches long. The tree is most noticeable when the flowers appear at the tips of the stems or in the leaf axils. It is advisable to remove this invasive tree from the landscape and hand-pull any seedlings. Another reason to remove it is a high susceptibility to wind breakage. Because of its low-maintenance, earleaf acacia is used as a container plant. But care should be taken that no seeds escape and add to the ecological invasion.

Expert panelists Vikki Spruill and Shelia Bowman sparked passionate and intellectual dialogue among students and attendees by drawing attention to the state of our ocean resources. Spruill is with Ocean Conservancy based in Washington D.C., a longtime partner of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation in its annual International Coastal Cleanup. Bowman is with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program in California. They explored the complexity of ocean conservation, seafood sustainability, and addressed the relationship between human activities and the health of our oceans. They called on students, campus, and community leaders to take action in restoring and protecting our ocean resources, urging the audience to educate themselves and to do something to initiate the social shift to sustainability. The event welcomed 17 local con servation groups and campus organizations for a networking session before the dialogue, including representatives from the Sanibel Sea School, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve. Also in attendance were the dialogues distinguished keynote listeners, Provost Ron Toll; coordinator Capt. Jeff Werner; Director and Co-founder of the Sanibel Sea School Dr. Bruce Neill; and Lee and Collier Countys Sea Grant Marine Scientist Bryan Fluech. These respected community leaders have been recognized for their ability to relay the messages of ocean conservation and sustainability into the wider community.

Theyre up for sale, but Melissa Rhodes, store manager, and Cathy Hackney, assistant manager, dont make a dime off them. Instead, all proceeds go to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW). In the spring and summer, Rhodes and Hackney make about $100 off of their jeweled creations to give to CROW. When the snowbirds descend upon the island, that number rises to at least $200 a month. They started selling jewelry to benefit CROW about a year ago. A donation jar already sat at the front counter, but Rhodes and Hackneys love of animals inspired them to take it a step further to raise more money for the wildlife hospital, Hackney said. One of their most popular pieces right now is anklets made out of fishing line. Anything we think of, we try it, Rhodes said. And if it works, we keep it. Each piece of jewelry goes for anywhere from $5 to $35. And with each sale, the two raise not only money for CROW, but awareness about the organizations mission: to save wildlife through compassion, care and education. It makes me feel great giving back to CROW, and giving back to the community, Rhodes said. Coyote And Bear Tales At SCCFOn November 9, the SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation will teach about two newcomer species to the islands. A coyote and a Florida black bear were documented on the island for the first time last winter. Learn about the behaviors of these two new species and how to live with them. Coyotes have now moved into every county in Florida, and both human and bear populations are growing in the state. Eighty percent of a bears diet comes from insects and fruits. The program is free to children and SCCF members, and $5 for adults; it starts at 10 a.m.Call 472-2329 for more information. Cathy Hackney, assistant manager; and Melissa Rhodes, store manager

Help Adopt-AClass ProgramSince the inception of the Adopta-Class Program in 2003, The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum has been able to provide group tours and a one-of-a-kind educational experience to thousands of children in Lee County. Adopt-a-Class 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 report the field trips as the highlight of the school year for their fourth graders. While on a field trip to The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum, fourth graders will learn about mollusks 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 that include a hands-on shell introduction, 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 sponsorship support, Adopta-Class will once again be a highly successful educational outreach program for 2011-2012. The museum asks for continued support from program sponsors; the cost of a full sponsorship is $450, or co-sponsorships are available at $300. The full amount of the contribution is 100 percent tax deductible. Anyone who would like to help sponsor the Adopt-a-Class program, contact Amanda Stirn at astirn@shellmuseum. org. For more educational program information, contact Diane Thomas at dothomas@shellmuseum.org, or call the museum at 395-2233. Shell Islands Garden ClubThe Shell Islands Garden Club will meet on Tuesday, November 8. Sue Richie of Forever Green Ace Hardware will present a unique demonstration on how to make a living garden wall for the clubs members and guests. Living garden walls, a recently popular innovation in gardening, can be small or large. Constructed with bromeliads or herbs, the living garden can be attached to a fence or railing or stand on its own to hide a not-so-pretty wall. Richie will donate the finished project for the clubs annual auction in January. The November 8 meeting will be held at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church at 2304 Periwinkle Way. Social/ lunch time is at 11:30 a.m., with the program beginning at 12:30 p.m. Attendees should bring a sandwich to share; beverages and dessert will be provided. Anyone interested in the give-and-take of gardening, sharing what you grow, the art of flower arranging, beautifying the landscape, and helping conserve natural resources as well as making new gardening friends might want to consider becoming a member of the Shell Islands Garden Club. For more information, call President Maggie Butcher at 395-0975. Sponsorships provide Lee County fourth graders the chance to enjoy a field trip to The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 201132 Chaotic Hilarity At Florida Repby Di SaggauNeil Simon has been bringing laughter into the lives of theater goers for many years. One of his best comedic plays, Rumors, is showing at Florida Rep. This production is the funniest and cleverest Ive ever seen. It sparkles from beginning to end. The cast is spot-on in portraying their respective roles: four couples who desperately try to survive a high-brow 10th anniversary dinner party as the guest of honor is busy bleeding upstairs and his wife is nowhere to be found. What follows is a series of increasingly ludicrous events that have the audience laughing out loud over and over again. Director Robert Cacioppo has assembled a cast that perfectly complements each other. First to arrive at the party are lawyers Chris and Ken Gorman (Michelle Damato and Brad DePlanche), who discover that their hostess, along with the household staff, has taken off for parts unknown, and their host is upstairs in the bedroom, nursing a bullet wound in his earlobe, presumably following an unsuccessful suicide attempt. They concoct a confusing explanation for the situation, one that continues to change as others arrive for the party. Lies upon lies, and confusion over which fiction is the currently operable one has the audience in stitches. Next come Claire and Lenny Ganz (Carrie Lund and David Breitbarth). They have the cleverest lines and their delivery, facial expression, timing and charm are exceptional. Breitbarth is hysterical as a man suffering from whiplash, and gives a final monologue, the supreme lie of the evening, that totally wins over the audience. Lund is perfect in her role as a jaded suburban housewife, nailing her lines with a deadpan delivery. And wait until you see her dance to La Bamba, a show-stopping scene involving the entire cast. Ernie and Cookie Cusack (David S. Howard and Viki Boyle), portray a doting, baby-talking husband and a television cooking show host, who add considerable hilarity to the production. Glenn and Cassie Cooper, played by Peter Thomasson and Jackie Schram, are the most polished of the elite dinner guests and are wholly believable in their roles as the state senatorial candidate and his disillusioned, distrusting bride. The two police offers who enter the action during the second act are played by Mark Chambers and Julianne Avolio. Chambers does a nice job showing us how perturbed he is with the dinner party guests and Avolio, who has few lines, picked up laughs for her interaction with the police radio on her shoulder. Rumors is unapologetically and delightfully silly, a zany, frantic energy show that provides a totally entertaining evening for the audience. Its a pleasure to watch an ensemble whose members bring each others performances to new heights. To top things off, Set Designer Jim Hunter has put together a detailed, complete set that supports all of the crazy action on stage. The show plays through November 18 at Florida Repertory Theatre, in the Historic Arcade Theatre on Bay Street between Jackson and Hendry. Tickets are available online at floridarep.org or by calling 332-4488.

Go for it. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sharp, logical mind and a quick intellect. You would make an excellent mystery writer. On Nov. 8, 1847, Bram Stoker, author of the horror novel Dracula, is born in Clontarf, Dublin, Ireland. Stokers villainous, blood-sucking creation, the vampire Count Dracula, became a pop-culture icon and has been featured in hundreds of movies, books and plays. On Nov. 10, 1903, Mary Anderson receives patent No. 743,801 for her window cleaning device for electric cars and other vehicles to remove snow, ice or sleet from the window. Anderson tried to sell it to a Canadian manufacturing firm, but the company said the device had no practical value. On Nov. 11, 1921, three years after the end of World War I, the Tomb of the Unknowns is dedicated at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia when an unknown American soldier is buried. A 2-inch layer of soil brought from France was placed below the coffin so that the soldier might rest forever atop the earth on which he died. On Nov. 7, 1940, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapses due to high winds. At the time, wind forces were not taken into consideration by engineers and designers. The remains of the bridge, at the bottom of Puget Sound, form one of the largest man-made reefs in the world. On Nov. 12, 1954, Ellis Island, the gateway to America, shuts it doors after processing more than 12 million immigrants since opening in 1892. Firstand secondclass passengers had easily passed through customs, but those in third class underwent medical inspections to ensure they didnt have a contagious disease. On Nov. 9, 1965, Roger Allen LaPorte, a 22-year-old member of the Catholic Worker movement, immolates himself in front of the United Nations headquarters in New York. Before dying, LaPorte, who was against war, declared that he did it as a religious act. On Nov. 13, 1982, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is dedicated in Washington, D.C. The long-awaited memorial was a simple V-shaped black-granite wall inscribed with the names of the 57,939 Americans who died in the conflict, arranged in order of death, not rank, as was common in other memorials. It was French Renaissance essayist Michel de Montaigne who made the following sage observation: Nothing is so firmly believed as what is least known. If someone called you a mumpsimus, would you be flattered or insulted? It seems that the appropriate reaction would be to take offense. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a mumpsimus is a stubborn person who insists on making an error in spite of being shown that it is wrong. The English language is unique in the number of collective nouns it possesses. For instance, a group of frogs is known as an army and a group of crows is called a murder. We have a shrewdness of apes, a wisdom of wombats, a congregation of crocodiles, a smack of jellyfish, a wiggle of worms, a crash of rhinoceroses, a waddle of penguins and a scourge of mosquitoes, to name a few. Geese flock together in gaggles, unless theyre in flight, in which case they are collectively known as a skein. In the Baltic region, its traditional for a bride to wear black. Youve probably never heard of Harvey Lowe, but in the 1930s he enjoyed a certain amount of notoriety; in 1934 he won the first World Yo-Yo Contest. Now that you know who he is, can you imagine what he had in common with Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards and notoriously flamboyant entertainer Liberace? It turns out that all three took out insurance policies on their hands. If youre like 20 percent of the respondents in a recent poll, you find it embarrassing to order tap water when youre in a restaurant. A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep. -Saul Bellow THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

35 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 2011 From page 1100th Birthdayabout that historic time. Her work for the city makes for a long list: She was the committee chair historian, board member, and secretary for Sanibel Tomorrow, the group formed to work for incorporation. She was a board member of the Sanibel-Captiva Planning Board, an earlier group trying to control development on the island (Eskew called it the original watchdog of the island). When those two organizations merged to form the Committee of the Islands (COTI), Eskew was a board member of COTI and later its first female president. In that role, she made the introductions at Sanibels first town meeting. She was membership chair for the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation. She volunteered and still volunteers for the Sanibel Captiva Sail and Power Squadron. She was a long-time volunteer for the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. One would think shed look tired, but she was a portrait of energetic elegance at her birthday celebration (her actual birthday is October 31), greeting friends and socializing. Mayor Kevin Ruane read a resolution that would be presented at Sanibel City Council November 1, wishing Eskew sincere and heart-felt congratulations upon this centennial celebration occasion. But it was the stories told around the room rather than at the microphone that painted a picture of the special person everyone knows and so obviously loves witty and wise, sharp and sophisticated, courageous and committed, fun-loving and focused, always elegant, and forever devoted to Sanibel. Power Squadron members turned out in force for the party to honor their 100-year-old and still-active volunteer and shared their favorite stories. One night we were at the (Sail and Power) Squadron and we couldnt find Milena anywhere, said Bill Hay. Then we found out she drove by herself to Miami to watch a basketball game. Vice Mayor Mick Denham was a volunteer with Eskew at the wildlife refuge and they became close friends. When Milena was about 90 years old, she was going on a trip around Europe, Mick related. She got mugged at the London airport and lost everything credit cards, money, identification, everything. She lived for three days in the London airport until she could replace what she needed. I said to her, Well, Ill bet you were glad to come home, and she replied, Oh no, I continued my trip!Her granddaughter, 17-year-old Victoria Eskew said, I feel pretty special that my grandmothers turning 100. I hope I have those good genes in me! I love how admired she is. She has to be so elated that all these people came out. I feel great that she has so many people who care about her and so many friends.Shes the most fabulous person I have ever met, said daughter-in-law Pia Eskew. Shes somebody you have to envy for her spirit, knowledge and experiences and the way she gives to other people. Shes always been very generous with her time, her money, everything. Shes a great lady and thats a key word: lady. We had a 90th birthday party for her an well probably have a 110th. Son John Eskew said of his mother, To me, shes a standard for accomplishment and character. Thats what I try to live up to to accomplish that much, do it with a standard of character, and never give up. You can even see it in her posture; she works at it.Commander Hal Theiss of the Sanibel Captiva Sail and Power Squadron said that as a young woman, Eskew was asked whether she wanted to be a secretary or a teacher and she replied, No! I want to study engineering and chemistry, and MIT followed along with travels around the world. People want to be like her, said Theiss. She is one of the most admired people Ive met. We wish Milena a very good future for the many years ahead. Her list of achievements is absolutely incredible, we all know that, said David Bath. But two years ago, I drove Milena to city hall when they were celebrating the citys 35th anniversary. Driving back over the causeway she said, Im off to California next week. At 98 years old, she went by herself to see some friends she had met some time ago who own a winery in Napa Valley. The reason? Eskew had amassed an impressive fan collection, and the vineyard had built a fan museum in honor of her collection.Hyde Tucker of St. Michael and All Angels Church said a few words at the microphone. There are a lot of people here from the church, Tucker said. Milena offers practically every week to tell me how she started the church and how she got the building built and I have never said thank you in quite this way.After an evening of praise, Eskew was asked if shed like to say a few words. She would. I have been waiting for the other shoe to drop when all my peccadilloes are going to show up, so Im very grateful to the people who have been quiet who know the other side, Eskew said. As you get older, you know, you try harder because you have less to work with.

Meet Guest Artists At Tower GalleryTower Gallery invites everyone to meet guest artists Sarah Kiser and Todd Babb. Continuing its new monthly guest artist events, Tower Gallery announces two feature artists, exhibiting for the entire month of November with a reception on Friday, November 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. Kiser is a self-taught artist living her dream of creating art. Her styles are diverse, ranging from realistic portraits to earthy and organic abstract pieces. The paintings center on women and feminine themes of fairies, mermaids, and portraits. Kisers art will take viewers into a wondrous journey of a storybook world. Favorite materials are wood, acrylic, fabric, paint, ink, and pencil. Todd Babb presents his original polyresin sculpture creations. After years of working with wood, clay and metals, Babb discovered his ideal medium: polyresin. He uses this material to create distinctively graceful sculptures of dancers and acrobats. Most of his subjects are women without facial features and distinctive hair. The hair is sort of like my signature, Babb said. It helps with the motion. The hair, for me, is an integral part. Its just part of the character. Todd averages 25 shows a year and will have a gallery opening in Atlanta in January. The Tower Gallery is locatedat 751 Tarpon Bay Road in Sanibel, phone 472-4557, website www. towergallery.net, and email artists@ towergallery.net. It isopen every day from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. A Sanibel beach cottage built in 1926 is home to the artists of the Tower Gallery, an artists cooperative for over 25 years where 24 artists come together to share this special space and celebrate the fine arts.

Vice Mayor Mick Denham said he wants to develop a grand plan and then focus on a small area. To move this forward, I think we should choose an area and use this as a model on which we can expand. He added, It should not be a city plan but that of people who have a desire to grow their properties and their buildings. Denham singled out Palm Ridge Road as one of the ugliest parts of the island, and a good place to start. Resident Larry Schopp said, Citizens may be misled into thinking this is going to be a traditional town center in the New England sense. I dont know there is going to be a place for open air concerts on a Sunday. What I envision is greater connectivity. The shared use paths have gone a long way this summer in increasing connectivity. What Maureen Valiquette envisions is a place for people to gather, perhaps for a meal or coffee, with outdoor tables, such as are found in many other towns and cities. She also said Sanibels founding fathers made provision in the Sanibel Plan for a place where people would gather as a community to socialize and participate in community events together. She quoted from the plan: Further retail development should be encouraged in Palm Ridge area because of the latter areas relatively good access from Periwinkle Way, Palm Ridge Road and Tarpon Bay Road, and because it is the geographical center of the island In addition a master plan should be developed for this area, as a further guide to development and to reinforce the town center concept. Council will continue the discussion at its December meeting. City Employee Of The QuarterKyle Hed, an employee in the City of Sanibels Public Works Department, was named employee of the quarter. At the city council meeting Tuesday, Mayor Kevin Ruane gave Hed a check and a proclamation, saying, You are part of a very select group of employees who have distinguished themselves as outstanding public servants who have received this award. This designation results from the recognition of your personal accomplishments by your coworkers. Council Gets Update On CHRby Anne MitchellIn an update to the Sanibel City Council on Tuesday, Councilman Doug Congress said Community Housing & Resources has a new board treasurer, John Morley. The citys below market rate housing agency is having serious financial problems. Last month, the council learned that CHR is carrying about $250,000 in longterm debt and was more than 90 days past due on bills totaling $158,000. Congress, who is council liaison to CHR, noted that the board president, Richard Johnson, is receptive to understanding the issue of transparency and that it will really benefit them. Richard is going to bring it up at the next board meeting. Congress said, They have a lot of meetings that even we as liaison dont know are going on. I would like to see them more forthcoming. However, they do a good job of keeping minutes, he said. He said its been frustrating, but said if it were not for the term debt, they are OK operationally. They have adequate income and their expenses are in check, he noted. There is dissention among the board members, Congress said, which is preventing the executive director from moving forward. I am going to reach out in the next several days to some specific board members that I know have some issues. Vice Mayor Mick Denham hes been hearing the same story for two years. if we are still sitting here next year saying the same things, we have to do something different, he said. Congress said, We are all getting tired of talking about this. Our hand will be forced to make a decision if they cant get their liquidity (resolved). Top Ten Books On The Island1.

39 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 2011 Book ReviewDouble Livesby Max FriedersdorfThe friendships formed by Americas greatest writers is the theme of Double Lives by literary historian Richard Lingeman, an absorbing study of good and bad relationships that shaped such authors as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Mark Twain. Lingeman, a senior editor at The Nation and a reviewer for the New York Times Book Review quotes Scipio, the ancient Roman philosopher, about the transitory nature of friendship. The most difficult thing in the world is for a friendship to remain unimpaired to the end of life. So many things might intervene...conflicting interests, difference of opinion in politics, frequent changes in character, owing sometimes to misfortune, sometimes to advancing years, paraphrasing the ancient Scipio. Lingeman, a beautiful writer and meticulous researcher, tells the stories of seven representative literary friendships of Americas most celebrated authors, starting with Nathaniel Hawthorne and Herman Melville. When they met on August 5, 1850 in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, a village set in the green Berkshire Mountain country, it was a crucial time in each of their lives. Melville was writing his masterpiece, Moby Dick, and Hawthornes highly successful The Scarlet Letter had just been published. The issue of a homoerotic attraction between the men has become a cause clbre in the journals of academe, according to Lingeman. Lingeman describes Fitzgerald and Hemingway riding the carousel of fortune when they met in Paris during the twenties. Fitzgerald was the betterknown and a commercial success, and each resolved to be the greatest writer of their time, but once Hemingway had reversed roles and became more successful and famous in the thirties, he acted self-important and superior, withholding a lifeline as Scott struggled against the riptides of fortune, Lingeman explains. Perhaps the saddest case is Sinclair Lewis (Main Street), who spent the last year of his life, in failing health, wandering in Italy where at some point he compiled a list of all the friends he had lost over his lifetime through quarrels or neglect.It was a classic case of a great writer who had sacrificed everything -wives, children, and friends and given the best of himself to work, Lingeman adds. The paradox is that authors like Lewis difficult friends in life give us books we love like friends, Lingeman concludes. (Other relationships examined in the readable and highly informative Double Lives include: Mark Twain and William Dean Howells; Henry James and Edith Wharton; Willa Cather and Sarah Orne Jewett; Theodore Dreiser and HL Mencken; Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and Neal Cassaday (the Beat generation).

Please note this meeting is the third Wednesday of the month due to the Thanksgiving holiday. The meeting is free and open to the public, and the discussion begins promptly at 2 p.m. in the meeting room across from the elevator, Meeting Room 4.

Environs, the first exhibit, features three local artists whose work focuses on their love and concern for the environment. Having moved as a child from Chicago to Bonita Springs, Greg Biolchini nationally known for his pastels and portraits has turned his talents to painting the power and majesty of his life-long love: Florida skies. Mally Khorasantchi fell so in love with Florida that she moved from her native Germany to Naples. Struck by the color and exuberance of the landscape, she creates big, bold, graphic works to capture her view of nature. Lindsey Wollard, a fourth-generation Floridian, builds small, quiet tree sculptures from used population and land development books, making statements about environmental destruction. The Watson McRae Gallery is located in The Village Shops at 2340 Periwinkle Way, Suite B-3; phone 472-3386. The countdown has begun in just seven days, Kay Casperson will make her television debut on the national home shopping network, ShopNBC!

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 20114B Blueberry-Lemon Corn Muffins paper muffin cup liners stick ( cup) unsalted butter cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoons baking powder cup yellow cornmeal cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest cup whole milk 2 large egg yolks cup blueberries Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line six 1/3-cup muffin cups with paper liners. Melt butter and cool. Into a large bowl sift together flour and baking powder and whisk in cornmeal, cup sugar, lemon zest, and a generous pinch salt. In a bowl whisk together melted butter, milk, and yolks and add to flour mixture with half of blueberries, gently stirring until just combined. Divide batter evenly among cups (batter will fill cups) and press remaining blueberries into tops of muffins. Sprinkle tops of muffins evenly with remaining tablespoon sugar. Bake muffins in middle of oven about 15 minutes, or until tops are golden and a tester comes out clean. Remove muffins from cups and cool on a rack. Muffins keep in an airtight container at room temperature two days. Look for Fresh from Florida ingredients at your grocery store. Blueberry-Lemon Corn Muffins Yard Sale To Save Luther Van DrossLuther Van Dross and Patti Legg are holding a yard sale on Saturday, November 5, in an effort to raise money to buy the necessary medications to keep Luther alive. The sale will take place atfrom 9 a.m. to noon at 2301 Periwinkle Way #5 in the carport. The sale will feature household goods, some furniture, and clothing. Luther is a red standard dachshund and has Cushings disease, the finality of which can be postponed for several years with the vital and expensive medications that would give him a pain-free, extended life with Legg. Luthers expensive veterinary care is being directed by Coral Vet team on the island. Legg cannot afford the expense of Lutherss treatment without help. Many nonprofit organizations are lending support but because of the extended length of time Luther requires these expensive medications, Legg must raise extra money a couple of times a year hence the yard sale on November 5. Luther is a rescue dog who came into Leggs life four years ago at an event that focused on finding homes for shelter dogs. Luther had been starved and abandoned by a family who couldnt afford to stay in their house anymore, Legg explained. Mother, Jean (Leggs sister) and I nursed and fed him back to health after I brought him home. Legg is realistic and knows Luther Van Dross (named after her favorite singer) wont live forever. She just doesnt want him to go too soon. Posters for the sale will be displayed at the Baileys community bulletin board and the bulletin board outside of Jerrys. Association Of University WomenThe American Association of University Women will hold a luncheon with speaker November 17 at 11:30 a.m. This meeting is open to the public.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 20115B Replica Of Sanibel Lighthouse Finds A New HomeThe replica of the Sanibel Lighthouse that made Baileys General Store and Bank of the Islands its home for the past few months was successfully raffled off during Baileyfest on Sunday, October 23. The winners were Steven and Kate Archer from Dickson City, Pennsylvania. Archers father has a home on Sanibel. Archer purchased a single ticket and was very excited and surprised to hear the news that he had won. We are so excited about the lighthouse. Its a beautiful piece, Archer said when he had learned that he was the lucky winner. We will be down over Thanksgiving and cant wait to see the lighthouse at the house. Rusty Farst, a Sanibel filmmaker, has been selling the limited set of raffle tickets to start a fund that will help pay for the repainting of the original Sanibel Lighthouse. Several months ago, Baileys General Store began displaying the replica to help sell tickets for the raffle. And for the final part of the fundraising effort, Farst partnered with Bank Of The Islands, to help sell the remaining tickets at $10 each. This has been a great project and I enjoyed working with this community to see it through, Farst said. Id like to extend a huge thankyou to everyone who purchased a ticket and to Baileys and Bank Of The Islands for giving the lighthouse a home for a while.

Call The SanibelSusan Team With The Coming Next Year Of A Major LPGA Event, Area Hosts Tournaments For All Three Pro Tours.by Ed FrankIf there were any doubts that our area has become a red-hot hub of professional golf, those doubts were erased last week with the announcement that the prestigious LPGA CME Group Titleholders featuring the worlds best female golfers will be held here beginning next year. The season-ending $1.5 million tournament, with a $500,000 first-place check, will be played November 15 through 18 at TwinEagles in Naples. This brings to three the number of annual professional tournaments played here the Champions Tour Ace Group Classic, the post-season PGA Shark Shootout and now the ladies Titleholders. The LPGA has been absent from Southwest Florida since 2001, the final year of the Subaru Memorial. The format of the Titleholders is unique to tournament golf. The field consists of three qualifiers from every tournament on the LPGA Tour, thus creating a season-long competitive program never before used in professional golf. This format will be introduced next month at the Titleholders in Orlando. When moving here next November, the Titleholders will be the first professional event at the completely redesigned Eagle course, one of two at TwinEagles. The course was first designed by Hall of Famer Gary Player. TwinEagles also is home to the Champions Tour Ace Group Classic that will celebrate its 25th anniversary in Southwest Florida next February 13-19. One of the most popular events on the senior circuit that annually draws the biggest names in 50-and-over professional golf, the Ace Group Classic has raised millions for local charities. The 2011 tournament provided more than $200,000 to 10 charitable organizations in the area. Next month, the 23d edition of Greg Normans Shark Shootout will feature 24 of the best golfers from the PGA Tour when it returns to the Tiburon Golf Club in Naples. Twelve players in the field recorded 15 victories in 2011, twelve on the PGA Tour, and three on the Champions Tour. Headlining the field is PGA champion Keegan Bradley who earned a notch in golf history when he won playing in his first major tournament. The Shark Shootout consists of 12 two-man teams competing for a purse of $3 million in a mixed format of alternate shots, better ball and scramble. The team pairings for the Shark Shootout will be announced in the next couple of weeks. It is doubtful whether there is another locale in America that can call home to tournaments of all three professional tours testimony to the strong following of professional golf in Southwest Florida. Losses Mount for Everblades on Long Road Trip. It has been a tough road trip for the Florida Everblades hockey team, losing twice last weekend to Greenville, 7-4 and 5-3. The Everblades began the week with a 1-4 record in a nine-game road trip that continues this week. The local team completes the 5,000-mile journey with four games this week at Gwinnett, two at South Carolina and one at Greenville. Florida returns to home ice at Germain Arena next week hosting Wheeling for three games Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights. Through last weekend, Florida had a 2-4-1 season record and a fourth place standing in the ECHL South Division. SPORTS QUIZ1.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 201110B PGA TipsA Quick Practice Routineby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalMost of us get very little time for golf, much less practicing golf. If you have little practice time, here is a quick routine to use. If you do this routine at least once a week for 45 minutes your game will improve immediately! 1. 15 minutes of putting practice Start 30 feet from the hole with one golf ball. Roll about three 30-footers from four different angles (uphill/downhill/ breaking right/breaking left). This will total 12 putts. Then roll a total 20 5-footers. Putts make up about 40 percent of the total strokes in a game of golf; putting deserves at least a third of your total practice time. 2. 15 minutes of chipping/pitching Chip and pitch from all different lies and distances around the green for 15 minutes. Focus on your routine as if you were playing. Stand behind the ball, visualize what you want the ball to do, do a few rehearsal swings then hit the shot. 3. 15 minutes of full swing practice Start with a wedge and hit a few full swings to a specific target and specific yardage. Hit a few balls with each club, going with more club as you go (wedge, then 9-iron, then 8-iron, etc.) until driver. This brief but useful routine will let you hit every shot you would face in a round of golf in about 45 minutes. Do this at least once a week and your scores will come down soon after. Everblades Sanibel NightJoin the Everblades hockey team on Saturday, November 19 for Sanibel Night at the Everblades. Game time is 7 p.m. versus the Greenville Road Warriors at the Germain Arena.

November celebrates the golden topaz. Known for at least 2,000 years, topaz serves as protection against enemies and as a symbol of beauty and splendor. The gem is said to dispel sadness, anger and nightmares, warn its wearer of poisons and protect the wearer from sudden death. The name topaz comes from the Sanskrit and means fire. The Greeks believed it had power to increase strength and to make its wearer invisible while the Romans believed it had power to improve eyesight. The Egyptians wore it as an amulet to protect them from injury. Topaz occurs in a wide range of colors including yellow, yellow-brown, honey-yellow, flax, brown, green, blue, light blue, red and pink, and is found in Brazil, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Russia. Naturally pale to medium blue topaz is enhanced by irradiation to produce a more intense blue color. Topaz is a hard gemstone that is very resistant to scratching and can be cleaned with most any commercial jewelry cleaner or plain soap and water using a soft brush. The most famous topaz is a colorless topaz that was originally thought to be a diamond. It is a 1,680-carat stone known as the Braganza Diamond set in the Portuguese Crown Jewels. Another beautiful topaz is in the Green Vault in Dresden, which has one of the worlds most important gem collections. Along with being the birthstone for November, topaz is the birthstone for December (blue topaz), a talisman for Sagittarius, as well as the gem that celebrates fourth, 19th and 23rd wedding anniversaries.

The award-winning Sanctuary team Superior InteriorsWhat Your Favorite Colors Say About Youby Marcia FeeneyThe psychology of color is fascinating. Every day there are more and more studies conducted that reveal new information about how color impacts our lives. Did you know that: Red increases the pulse rate, breathing and blood pressure? If you like red, you yearn for the impulsive life. Red is the color of action, love, and courage. You are likely to be outspoken, athletic and somewhat fickle. Blue is a wonderful, calming color. Did you know that blue actually causes the brain to send off 11 chemical tranquilizers? If you like blue, you are probably a capable, conservative and sensitive person. Green is Mother Natures favorite color. If you like green, you might be fresh, natural and friendly by nature. Green shades tend to evoke a sense of relaxation, comfort and quietness. It also represents new growth and new beginnings and can be used as a stressreducing color. Yellow is a stimulating color. People who like yellow tend to be smart and high-minded. You might find yourself remaining optimistic in most situations and are generally enthusiastic about new ideas. You enjoy action and have the ability to project your ideas well to others. Orange is an exuberant and bold color. Orange lovers tend to be friendly, cheerful and able to get along with practically everyone. You are social by nature and hate to be alone. You want the world to be warm and mellow like the glow of a fireplace. Purple is a royal and fantasyinvoking color. If you like purple, you could possibly be an artist at heart. You like to surround yourself with talented people and tend to be very free spirited by nature. Brown is a warm and comforting color. Brown lovers are often conscientious and steady in their ways. You tend to be very interested in genealogy and home. The company of your family is paramount in your life. Marcia Feeney is an interior decorator on Sanibel. She can be reached at marcia@decden.net.

School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, Many of you will be facing your son or daughters transition from high school to the outside world in a few months. For many students the transition is easy. They will be going to college, the military, or a vocational setting and they are looking forward to this new phase in their lives. For students who have special needs, transitioning out of public school is a lengthy and complex process. Legally, transition planning for special needs students should begin at age 14. Typically, however, the planning is minimal and needs and goals of the student are rarely developed and implemented successfully. This topic is much too big for this column so instead I have provided a book review for you that tells of one familys challenges in helping their son, who has Aspergers Syndrome, transition to the world beyond school. Right from the start with the cover design and title, Right Address Wrong Planet, Children With Asperger Syndrome Becoming Adults, author Dr. Gena Barnhill immediately conveys the isolation and difficulties that people identified with Asperger Syndrome (AS) must endure. Barnhill is a well-known and published advocate for individuals identified with Asperger Syndrome. This book is the poignant account of Brent Barnhills experiences as an adolescent and young adult with AS. As well, it is the story of the struggles that Barnhill and her husband experience as parents of an AS child trying to find help for their son. The book begins with an excellent preface and introduction from Barnhill. Then Brents passage from adolescence to adulthood propels the reader through 13 highly readable chapters. The book is divided into five parts with each part focusing on a particular set of issues. It includes chapters on the Barnhills search for recognition and diagnosis of AS and a knowledgeable professional with whom to work. Several chapters recount the challenges that Brent has experienced with dating, college, work, and psychological concerns. There is also a very helpful chapter on navigating the social services system. Each chapter concludes with a special summary highlighting the main points and references. The final sections of this book offer remarks and insights from other families who are struggling with AS. There is also an extensive resource section with phone numbers, organizations, and website addresses that will be helpful to families and professionals who work with anyone diagnosed with AS. Right Address Wrong Planet, Children With Asperger Syndrome Becoming Adults is a book for both parents and professionals. It provides a history of Asperger Syndrome and embeds recent research findings within the text. The tone and language of the book not only reflect Barnhills professional expertise but also the vulnerability and perceptions of caring, devoted parents. I recommend it to all who are interested in learning more about the range of issues associated with Aspergers Syndrome. 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. Questions for publication may be addressed to smgreggs@gmail.com. Not all questions submitted can be addressed through this publication. Students To Receive AwardsTom Scott, Lee County School Board Chair, will introduce the eighth grade students from Cypress Lake Middle School who are receiving awards for their essays, Why You Should Vote, for the Fort Myers Republican Womens Clubs competition. The three students with the winning essays will be recognized at the monthly luncheon of the club on Tuesday, November 15. The public is invited to attend the luncheon and the program being held at The Helm Club, The Landings, South Fort Myers. A social hour begins at 11:15 a.m. The noon lunch, business meeting, and program follow. Students will read their essays prior to receiving recognition gifts. The luncheon cost is $16. Reservations are required by Thursday, November 10, and may be made by contacting Tina Laurie, 489-4701.

15B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 2011New Journalism Course At FGCU Receives GrantFlorida Gulf Coast Universitys newly created journalism program has been awarded a $42,000 grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation to launch Face-to-Face: Conversations with Journalists. The grant will allow high school, undergraduate and graduate students from across the United States to talk virtually with journalists who have covered news in hard-to-reach areas. These are journalists whom students would never otherwise meet, said Lyn Millner, who leads FGCUs journalism program and who created the project. Students will learn how these reporters make decisions, verify information and report the truth especially in challenging environments. FGCU will partner with Poynters News University in St. Petersburg, Florida, and with Stony Brook Universitys Center for News Literacy in Long Island, New York, to produce the Face-to-Face conversations. Millner and new Associate Professor Of Journalism Rick Kenney will develop companion teaching resource materials as part of the project. We welcome FGCU to our grantee portfolio, said McCormick Foundation Journalism Program Director Clark Bell. News literacy anchors our strategy of building a more informed, news-literate and engaged citizenry. We expect the FGCU-Stony Brook-Poynter collaboration will make a major contribution to the effort. Face-to-Face is part of a national news literacy education movement FGCU has brought to Southwest Florida. FGCU is one of only two higher-education institutions in Florida that are formally involved with Stony Brooks Center for News Literacy. Poynter NewsU is excited that these conversations will be a resource for teachers from around the world, said Howard Finberg, News Universitys Director of Interactive Learning. The first Face-to-Face conversation will be held in January 2012. High schools and universities may apply to participate in a Face-to-Face conversation at Poynters NewsU at www.newsu.org/ fgcu_face2face. For information contact Lyn Millner at 590-7257 or lmillner@fgcu.edu.

Diane Knight How Carrier Air Conditioning Got Its Nameby Bryan HayesPart II of II There is more to this story, as indicated in Part I of this article last week. There was another man who went by the name of Willis Carrier, a scientist and inventor born in 1876. Carrier is also known as the inventor of modern air conditioning. In 1902, Carrier submitted his drawings for what became known as the first modern air conditioning system. What was particularly important about Carriers work was that he discovered it was necessary to control humidity (something I always talk about), which in air conditioning lingo later became known as the law of constant dew-point depression. His work led to the understanding of the essential concepts of humidity which then led to the design of air conditioning systems that could control it. With that in mind, he filed a patent for an automatic control system in 1907. Eight years later, Carrier partnered with six other engineers who brought together their lives savings to form the Carrier Engineering Corporation in New York City. In the face of financial struggles after the Wall Street Crash of 1929, the company merged with BrunswickKroeschell Company and New York Heating & Ventilating Corporation and formed Carrier Corporation, with Carrier acting as chairman of the board. Needless to say, based on the fact that Carrier is still one of the worlds largest air conditioning manufacturers, the company went on to do quite well. After the company relocated to Syracuse, New York in 1937, it became one of the largest employers in the central part of the state. In addition, Toyo Carrier and Samsung Applications were started in Korea and Japan. While the Great Depression and the world wars impacted commercial and residential use of air conditioning, it only took the post-war economic surge in the 1950s that greatly revived its popularity. The Carrier company went on to be the first to design air conditioning systems that could cool large spaces. The invention of residential air conditioning changed the way Americans would live and helped start the great migration to the southern part of the United States. Its a shame that John Gorrie never got the chance to successfully patent and manufacture his product. And being that Im in the business of air conditioning, Im pretty glad that Carrier did. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor. He also owns, with his brother Todd, an electrical business on Sanibel. He can be reached at Bryan@Sanibelair.com.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 4, 201116B From page 1BAround The Islandsthe store with her husband Ben. There are too many medals now to display them in the store. The awards are international, national and from two different Florida state organizations: Wines of the South, and the Epcot Competition. You have to be invited to the Epcot Competition, so were very proud of that. Many of our awards are for Best in Show, plus we have a Double Gold Concordance Award, which means we swept the judges, who do not confer with one another. The store features Florida-made wine with flavors such as cranberry, blackberry, mango, pineapple, and key lime and all the stores wines come from one vintner, Florida Orange Grove Winery. I carry their wines because theres no grape base and no flavoring added you get the full flavor of the fruit, said Miles. The wines have up to 75 percent less sulfites than traditional wines and contain only those that occur naturally. And that pretty much means no hangover. Wines range from 10 to 18 percent alcohol, and prices range from $17.99 to $43.99. The average price is $22 a bottle, and there are 41 varieties to choose from. Tropical Wines also carries wine accessories such as custom-made Sanibel Island glasses. Theres a different design every year, making them perfect for gifts for collectors. This years design features a sea turtle. Other accessories include bottle stoppers from the sophisticated to the hilarious, pourers, charms, hors doeuvres plates, coasters, decorative napkins and wine bags. They also have one of the largest selections of cork cages around for those who like to savor their wine long after its gone. We have a little bit of everything for everybody; at least we try to, she said. A bit of trivia Miles added: The first American wine ever made was made in Florida in the 1600s, called scuppernong and made from the muscadine grape. We do carry our version of that 17th century wine, she said. Its nice and mild, slightly sweet, with a light body. Tropical Wines ships to most states and welcomes online shoppers. Sanibel Tropical Wines is located at 2340 Periwinkle Way, Unit C-1 in The Village Shops. For more information on the store and what is has to offer, visit www.sanibeltropicalwines.com, phone 472-3398, or email at info@sanibeltropicalwines.com. If youre looking for something unique and bohemian for yourself or a gift for your friend who never quite made it back from Woodstock, head to On the Edge in the Village Shops and you will not be disappointed. Owners Betsy and Ken Rottman fill their boutique with handcrafted items from all over the world and with different and interesting things by local artists. I guess our store would be considered bohemian, eclectic, unique, said Betsy Rottman. What On the Edge has is home dcor, jewelry, purses, shell pieces, art, cards, stationery, and gifts. The store may be small in square footage, but it is huge in variety, character and charm. The Rottmans have been in the business 10 years, spending much of that time selling at arts-and-crafts shows and flea markets. On the Edge has been open at its current site in the Village Shops for one year. What probably will catch your eye first are the colorful purses in a variety of colors, from bright to muted to neutral. Many are adorned with stones, gems and recycled glass. One purse is made of palm leaves from Columbia. Many come from India and Africa, and they range in price from $35 to $175. Colorful pashminas and scarves from Guatemala cost from $28 to $48. There is jewelry galore: necklaces made of coffee beans, sea glass, and crystal and glass beads, among other things. If youre looking for finer jewelry, an Oregon artist has designed more elaborate pieces made with real gems and sterling silver clasps. There is a necklace of bamboo coral from Bali (this is not an endangered coral). Among some of the many green items are colorful wraparound bracelets made in Columbia made from recycled citrus peels; they cost $26. Baskets made in Bangladesh of recycled potato chip bags are $22. These are all fair trade. The store carries some of the prettiest seashell mirrors around, made by Cel Luke entirely from local shells. Each mirror takes about a month to make. Luke has also provided the store with shell picture frames, boxes, and vases. If you need a small gift, there are cards created by a former Sanibel resident; flower prints by Carol Good; and all manner of bracelets, key chains, earrings and belts. Moisturizing glycerin soaps sell for $5 in a variety of scents, and there are soy candles as well. We just started carrying Jellies from California, Rottman added. Theyre made of silicone and we carry four varieties: coin purses, sunglass cases, cell phone cases, and camera cases. ($18 each). A fairly new addition e is wearable art Although not primarily a clothing store, On the Edge is now carrying comfortable, casual womens clothing, mostly from India. Theres lots of tie-dyed, hand-painted and hand-embroidered clothing and a lot of free sizes,she said, mostly tops, jackets and dresses.

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, We have a lovely cottage in the woods on a large lake that we love and enjoy and, to our good fortune, it has also appreciated almost tenfold since our purchase. We are getting older now and the upkeep and taxes are beginning to cause us problems. Our daughter-in-law loves the cottage but our relationship with her has always been strained. My husband wants to sell rather than let her enjoy the fruits of his good fortune, but I hate to sell it and deprive our son and grandchildren of the pleasure the cottage might give them. What can you suggest we do? Muriel Dear Muriel, Perhaps you can work out an option for your son to assist with the taxes and upkeep of the cottage for the use of the cottage. On another note, why would you want to deprive your son and grandchildren the cottage because you do not like your daughter-in-law? Seems to be a choice based on spite. Decisions motivated by spite might feel good in the immediate but do not reflect well on ones character and there are most always unforeseen hurtful consequences. Pryce Dear Muriel, Your husband seems to have a real problem so bad that he is willing to deprive your son and grandchildren the pleasure the cottage could bring them. He made the money and the financial investment so I guess he feels he has the right to do as he pleases. We all have the right to make our own decisions and you cant change him so I would suggest you dont even try, because it will only make your life more stressful, but it is a most unfortunate situation.

Progesterone To The Rescueby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I met you at a book signing, and didnt want to hold up the line to elaborate on my health concerns. You said I should not be taking unopposed estrogen and I dont know what that means. If you recall, Im post-menopausal; I had a hysterectomy, and my doctor prescribes estradiol tablets. LY, Baltimore, Maryland I do recall saying that. It scares me that millions of women are taking unopposed estrogen medications (meaning, estrogen therapy without any natural progesterone to go with it). Excess estrogen has been linked to breast cancer and other hormonally driven disorders. Natural progesterone balances estrogen and is sold without prescription at health food stores, as a skin cream. I feel strongly that no woman should EVER be taking unopposed estrogen meds, even if she has had her uterus removed. Of course, everyone reading this should get physician approval to use progesterone, because my opinion columns are intended for educational purposes, not advice. Sadly, some physicians insist that women who do not have a uterus (i.e.; hysterectomy) no longer need progesterone, so they only prescribe estrogen drugs. This is short-sighted because there are progesterone receptors all over the body, not just in the reproductive organs. So even if you have your uterus removed, other organs are left starving for progesterone! It supports healthy bones, breasts, heart, liver and brain tissue in both men and women. Progesterone protects the breasts, and may relieve fibrocystic breast pain and reduce risk of breast cancer, studies prove it. This hormone may improve sleep, anxiety and cholesterol levels. Remarkably, progesterone feeds the brain, and a new study points to its benefit during the first few hours after a stroke. Natural progesterone is not the same thing as progestin drugs like methoxyprogesterone, which is sold by prescription. The medications are not bio-identical to what your body makes, and there are no receptor sites on your cells that exactly match the drugs. Because synthetic drugs are not bio-identical, there is a higher risk of side effects. Your local pharmacist can explain more. What you learn about progestin drugs does not at all apply to bio-identical, natural progesterone hormone. When you take unopposed estrogen, you could tilt yourself, hormonally speaking, and wind up with excess estrogen, a condition termed estrogen dominance or progesterone deficiency. Symptoms in post-menopausal women include anxiety, depression, irritability, hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, insomnia, bone loss or low sex drive. In pre-menopausal women, you might expect PMS, breast tenderness, migraines, fibroids, mood swings, bloating, or heavy periods. Using progesterone cream properly is critical. Application depends on your age and menstrual cycle. Its too complicated to get into here. Ive explained progesterone usage, and outlined other natural ways to support hormone health in my ebook, Breast/Prostate Cancer Protection sold at my website. DID YOU KNOW: A new study suggests that drinking three cups of regular coffee per day may reduce risk of basal skin carcinoma by up to 20 percent. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition. Suzy Cohen is the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and is a registered pharmacist.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Are crossword puzzles really the best way to help my brain stay sharp?A: Doing crossword puzzles certainly cannot hurt, but they wont necessarily help you remember your granddaughters friends name. According to a recent study, reading a novel or spending time with friends is just as helpful as doing a puzzle. The study also concluded that people who played memory games for six weeks did get better at the games; however, they did not fare any better on general tests of mental function than those in the control group. So, mental stimulation is very important and so is staying physically active, but there is a lot more to it than puzzles alone. Dr. Clancy is a licensed mental health therapist, certified hypnotherapist, life coach, author and public speaker. You may email Dr. Connie at connie@drconstance.com.
