Organizers Marj Nordstrom and Mary Bondurant are putting together a Sanibel Youth Choir to sing Count Your Blessings, Name Them One By One! Any and all children from Sanibel or Captiva are asked to become a part of the choir and perform at this special community event. Anyone who would like to participate should contact Marj Nordstrom at 395 2944. The BIG ARTS Community Chorus will perform Thanksgiving and Hanukah songs, and the mayor of Sanibel, the city manager and representatives of all the island churches will also be taking part in this community-wide celebration of Thanksgiving.Everyone is invited to join this nondenominational service which is a celebration of Thanksgiving in words and song.

Thanksgiving Celebration Introduces Sanibel Youth Choir The BIG ARTS Community Chorus, under the direction of Steve Cramer, will perform at this years Thanksgiving Celebration on Nov ember 20 at The Community House by Di SaggauA Couple of Blaguards, a two-man show about those two famous Irishmen Frank and Malachy McCourt, opens Tuesday, November 15, at The Herb Strauss Theater on Sanibel. The show, written by the two brothers, is based on their lives growing up in Limerick and their adventures in New York after coming to America. Starring Howard Platt and Jarlath Conroy, the show has received rave reviews around the country, Canada and Australia. The raves include: We had a rollicking good time. You dont have to be Irish to appreciate the ironic sense of humor of the brothers, but it helps to have a little Irish humor in your soul. The show is so funny and plays so well in the minds eye that it isnt until youre half-way out the door that you realize how tough and unsentimental it is. The boys have seen so much that there can be no more tears. All thats left to do really is laugh and keep moving. An evening of dour delight, wizard timing, and expert blarney. I talked to Platt recently about the show and he said, Its kind of an Irish comedyvaudeville type of show. The first act tells about humor thats born of poverty. What some might consider hopelessness, the McCourts turned into literary magic and humor. No matter the age or religion, people get it and enjoy it. This includes tales of their first communion, and a fireand-brimstone priest who talks about the torments of Hell. The second act is about the two brothers coming to America and takes on a completely different tone as they talk about their adventures in New York. Platt has played both roles and will be playing Malachy in the Strauss production. continued on page 17Irish Humor And History At The Strauss Jarlath Conroy and Howard Platt in A Couple of Blaguards City Hall Veterans Day ProgramVeterans Day ceremonies will take place at Sanibel City Hall on Friday, November 11.

The city council a year ago upheld its ban on any new docks on San Carlos Bay, despite pleas from seven property owners that they were being denied their riparian rights. They were represented by attorney Steve Hartsell.The lawsuit, filed October 14 in the Lee County Circuit Court, seeks damages and compensation and cites the citys approval of its own concrete boat dock for the Sanibel Police Department in the same bay beach zone where the plaintiffs reside and where the city maintains that docks are harmful to seagrasses. The suit was filed by Steven Geoffrey Geisler of Geisler & Geisler PA, of Port St. Lucie, Florida, on behalf of Robert and Diane Williams, Richard Brown, David and Susan Kentner, Terry Spillane, Shirley A. Paulsen and Jerrys Foods, which is owned by Gerald Paulsen. Chip Roach, one of the property owners represented before council by Hartsell is not among those named in the lawsuit. He declined to comment on his reason for not suing the city. The council in October 2010 voted 4-0 to uphold the bayfront dock ban with Councilman Jim Jennings absent. It was considered one of the most defining issues of the decade and the vote was a complete turnaround from six months earlier, when council directed the planning commission to devise an ordinance that would lift the 17-year-old dock ban. The planning commissioners, after hours of debate over several months, were divided on the issue with three of the four opposed to lifting the ban. If the ban had been lifted, 59 new docks could be constructed between Woodring Point and the lighthouse. The council members also seemed torn on the issue until they were confronted with a roomful of citizens adamant about maintaining the strict codes on which Sanibel was founded in 1974. Until then, Mayor Kevin Ruane had been inclined to lift the ban. But in the final analysis, he said the plaintiffs purchased their property when either the 1993 or an earlier dock ban was in place, so there was no taking of property by the city. The lawsuit argues that technology now exists to build docks without harming seagrasses and that the areas where the docks would be constructed do not have seagrass populations anyway. According to the suit, the Kentners have received necessary approvals for a dock from the Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The lawsuit also asserts that the bans true purpose is to serve the aesthetic preferences of certain interest groups and to artificially protect the property values of other property owners who are allowed to build docks. Sanibel City Attorney Ken Cuyler said on Tuesday that the city will fight the legal battle and has already filed to have the case remanded to federal court. This is the option of the city, Cuyler said. He said he will keep the city council informed as the legal process plays out.The plaintiffs are asking for a jury trial. Council To Have Final Say In Marina Varianceby Anne MitchellIn a short second hearing, Sanibel Marina owner Myton Ireland on Tuesday received an amendment to permit 16 bonus outdoor seats at the on-site restaurant, Gramma Dots. The amendment is needed because the seats will be located less than the required setback from a body of water. Also, the restaurants hours will be extended and Ireland can now advertise the restaurant to non-marina customers. At the first hearing two weeks ago, the commission learned the marina had violations relating to issues, including the hours of operation, lighting and signage. Approval comes with six conditions imposed by staff, among them submission of plans for parking, lighting and an awning. Ireland was required to return to the commissions November 8 meeting to show that he had met the conditions and, if so, the commission would approve a final resolution. It will now go before city council, which has the final say on all matters regarding changes to the Land Development Code. City Planning Director Jim Jordan explained that restrictions imposed in 1986 were the result of the city trying to keep the marina compatible with the surrounding residential area. He added that there had been no negative feedback from neighbors on Irelands requested changes and that he expected none, since the changes had almost all already been implemented without proper approval. Variance Bid Brings Vegetation Removal To Lightby Anne MitchellA Lighthouse Way residents plan to enclose an existing 11-by-44-foot wood deck with a wall and a roof, accessed by a new spiral staircase, was approved unanimously by the planning commission on Tuesday, even though it will encroach on the required setbacks. It also caused three of his neighbors to be cited for vegetation removal. Planning Director Jim Jordan said the vegetation removal on Gary Bellos property took place sometime after 2007 and was discovered from an aerial photograph. Another three properties to the east have done the same thing and code enforcement has contacted them about continued on page 7

Bello said salt resistant vine he planted died due to the salt spray, but Planning Commissioner Phillip Marks told him there are native species that can withstand such conditions. According to a staff report, the new staircase proposed by Bello will add 25 square feet of developed and impervious area and the new roof overhang would extend an additional two feet into the bay beach zone. Approximately 52 percent of the existing sundeck is located in the bay beach zone with the closest point being 42.33 feet from San Carlos Bay. Overall, just 10.8 percent of the home is in the bay beach zone. Under the code, up to a four-foot roof overhang doesnt count towards impermeable surface coverage except for impermeable surfaces located under the overhang. Planning staff said if the commission finds the plan meets all seven standards for granting variances, they recommend approval with certain conditions, including the replanting of suitable vegetation to replace that which was unlawfully removed. The commission did and Bello is free to move ahead with his plans.

Church To Exhibit Pat Bakers ArtworkThe Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ presents the paintings of Pat Baker during the month of November. Baker paints from subjects she loves and finds challenging florals, still life and landscapes in oil and watercolor. With a studio in Northern Michigan and one in the Fort Myers area, subjects abound. Over the past 12 years she has followed an ongoing interest in classes and art workshops and has participated in juried shows at BIG ARTS on Sanibel and in Fort Myers. She has studied with Ian Roberts, a well-known Canadian landscape painter on location in Provence, France and by the shores of Georgian Bay Ontario, Canada. A 2002 art adventure in Giverny, France included painting color and light in the garden of the impressionist painter Claude Monet. As the guest artist for the Saginaw, Michigan annual garden tour, she put paint to canvas among the blooms and 800 visitors. She has studied light and color theory while painting panoramic views on Mackinaw Island, Michigan, capturing unique weather and light conditions. Baker studies art and paints with artist Carol Hally of Cadilliac, Michigan; while in Florida, she paints outdoors on the gulf shores of beautiful Sanibel and Captiva. Baker is a member of Northern Michigan Art Guild and the Sanibel-Captiva Art League. Pat Baker Congregational Church Installs New ReverendA new reverend has been installed at the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ. Rev. Deb Kunkel was born and raised just north of Boston in Danvers, Massachusetts. She is a second career minister who spent 12 years as a real estate paralegal and title examiner before finally giving into Gods call to ordained ministry. During those years she served as Sunday School Superintendent and teacher, Christian Education Chair and youth chaperone at her home church in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Kunkel received her bachelors degree in liberal arts from Merrimack College in North Andover, and then moved to Maine with her husband Greg where she received her M.Div. from Bangor Theological Seminary. During her time as a student in Bangor she served as a licensed pastor in Thorndike, then Ellsworth Falls Maine. Upon her ordination in 2002 she became the Associate Pastor at St. Stephens UCC in Merrill, Wisconsin. She has served as Pastor of the United Church of Christ of Pittsville since January 2006. Since 2003 she has been part of the task force that plans and leads the annual Confirmation Retreats held by the Northwest Association of the Wisconsin UCC Conference. During her time in Pittsville she has completed training as an entry-level fire fighter and basic EMT, serving as a volunteer on Pittsville Fire Department for a little over three years. It is important for me to be involved in building communities of faith across all ages that can love and support each other, who then share that love from God with the wider community and world Deb remarked. Being in a community that seeks to love each other feeds my spirit. And I hope that in turn, I help feed the loving spirit of that community as we minister together. Kunkle has been married to Greg for 22 years. They have shared their home at various times with a variety of birds, cats and dogs, though not all at the same time. Being a part of not only the Sanibel community, but the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ is one they are enjoying to the fullest.

9 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 2011 Church Thanks Its Team For Making Strides Against Breast Cancer WalkCarol Gross, parish nurse for the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, reported that nine members and friends of the church took part in the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk held at Tanger Outlets on Saturday, October 22. They joined nearly 3,000 others making the 5K stride around the exterior of the outlet mall. Breast cancer affects one out of eight women in the United States (12 percent) during the course of their lifetimes. Men are not immune to this disease either. Statistics reveal that less than one percent of newly diagnosed cases of breast cancer are men. The incidence of breast cancer has decreased by approximately two percent since 2006. The theory behind this decline is that it might be due partially to a decrease in HRT (hormone replacement therapy) in recent years. There has also been a decrease in the death rate from breast cancer, which may be due to advances in treatment, earlier detection and increased awareness. In 2010 there were more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. A womans risk doubles when she has a first degree relative (mother, sister, daughter), who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Seventy to 80 percent of women diagnosed have no family history of the disease their cancer generally occurs due to genetic abnormalities that result from the aging process. So even though the month of October is over, it is never too late to be aware, be proactive, and be supportive of the local American Cancer Society (Via Royale Avenue, Fort Myers 33919). Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ team at the walk against breast cancer Evans To Speak At Community Church ServiceAuthor and international speaker Mike Evans will be speaking at all three morning services at Sanibel Community Church on Sunday, November 13.

This special service will be quiet and peaceful, offering songs of encouragement and words of hope. There will be a time to light a candle in memory of your loved one. Anyone who has experienced a personal loss this past year should come and bring a neighbor or friend who may also have gone through a difficult loss. This service will be held in the old historic chapel. Sanibel Community Church is located at 1740 Periwinkle Way (next to Jerrys.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 201114 Crackers Enjoy Fest, Support A Good Causeby Emilie AlfinoThe San-Cap Cracker Fest last Friday was packed with Florida natives and newcomers alike who, if not authentically Crackers, could at least pretend they were for this one night. With music by Blackwater, a South Florida band, and an authentic Cracker dinner, it was a welcome change from the usual Sanibel entertainment, and for a good cause. Hosted by the Sanibel Captiva Chapter of START (Solutions To Avoid Red Tide), event proceeds will help expand the Coastal Classroom program for Lee County Schools and provide support for other programs to preserve the marine environment. But on this night, for the most part it was not the marine environment supplying dinner. An authentic Cracker dinner was served: roast pig, fried and smoked mullet, collard greens, cheese grits, cornbread, and Esperanza Woodrings biscuits, with peach cobbler for dessert. Live and silent auctions offered an array of original artwork, baskets full of goodies, and even jewelry. The money raised is also going to help launch STARTs sustainable seafood program, Seafood Savvy, whose mission is to educate people about the depletion of some fish species people eat. Eighty percent of the U.S.s seafood is imported. Destructive fishing and fish farming practices add to the problem. By purchasing fish caught or farmed using environmentally friendly practices, people are supporting healthy, abundant oceans. Visit www. start1.com or www.seafoodwatch.org for more information.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 201116 Last Friday as I was loading items in my car to take to Noahs Ark, I placed my billfold on the top of the car and forgot it was there. As I drove up Periwinkle Way, it fell off, scattering cards along the road. Before I even arrived at Noahs Ark, I had a call from the Chamber of Commerce telling me that someone had turned in my wallet... I had not even missed it yet! I was very relieved that all my most critical information was still there. On Saturday I received a call from the Police Department that someone had turned in cards belonging to me (Medicare, Blue Cross, library card, etc.). Again, I was grateful to have recovered more of my information. Monday morning in my mailbox I found an envelope with even more of my cards (AAA, AARP, and store discount cards). No names had been left, so I want to give my heartfelt thanks to three strangers who went out of their way to return the things that are very important to me. This is just another reason why I love Sanibel! Gratefully, Ada Shissler, ADA LOGOS ThanksgivingSanibel Community Church will have Thanksgiving Night at Logos on Wednesday, November 16.

17 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 2011 Jeff Molnar Is A 30-Year Volunteer At Taste Of The Islandsby Emilie AlfinoAmong the hundreds of volunteers it takes to bring Taste of the Islands to fruition, Melissa Congress, this years chair of the event, wants to recognize someone whos been working for the CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife) fundraiser for 30 years: Jeff Molnar of Molnar Electric Inc. Congress remarked that when Molnar started giving of his time, he hadnt been in business very long, yet still took time out to help. I think its terrific, Congress said. It shows the strength of the community and Jeffs dedication to the island and to CROW. Molnar said he was first approached for help 30 years ago by Scott Siler who at that time was involved with the Mariner Group. Siler thought The Dunes would be a good place for an event CROW was planning. Scott was involved with many things including Sanibel Jazz and the beginning of BIG ARTS, Molnar explained. He wanted a spot where everybody could have events and fundraisers. Of course, they were different and smaller back then. The first Taste was put together as sort of a party for the island workers at the end of the season to get together and just blow off steam, according to Molnar. There was some entertainment, good food, and all the restaurants participated. Back in the days of The Dunes, we had as many as 45 restaurants, he said. At some point somebody came along with the idea of turning it into a fundraiser and inviting the public. CROW was in its infancy then, working out of Shirley Walters garage. I was approached to help with electrical services. Taste of the Islands was held at The Dunes for years, then grew too large and moved to Gulfside City Park. Molnar said, That was a pretty neat location. People could come by boat, plus there was shade. Now were at Community Park, which is a good use of that property. Molnar provides wiring for all the restaurants at the Taste, as well as the band, and brings in generators to provide temporary power. When it comes to volunteering, Molnar said, he sticks to things electrical. You do what you do best, he said. Over the course of a year, not only for CROW but for virtually every other nonprofit on the island, we do things at no cost or at an adjusted cost. Im working now with at the Bailey Homestead with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation. Molnar feels its his duty as an island businessman to give back to the community. I always felt it was incumbent on anybody in business to be willing to take on the responsibility of being involved in the community in any way, shape or form and not from a profit or business-gaining motive, Molnar stressed. Its part and parcel of what this island is all about. Congress complimented Molnar not just for his volunteerism but for his business. I think its remarkable that someones had a sustainable business doing what he likes and is successful at it for 30 years, she said.Congress added she is grateful not only to Molnar but to the Taste committee and to the many volunteers who worked hard to make this years Taste of the Islands possible. Jeff Molnar From page 1Irish ComedyHowever, both actors play many characters, using several Irish accents as they talk about growing up in a city of churches and pubs, and in a house with little or no plumbing. The stories they tell are full of wonderful Irish wit that is appreciated by everyone. He met the McCourt brothers in 1984 and has been directing, producing and acting in the play since that time. Frank died a couple of years ago. Platt said, I was best man at Frank and Ellens wedding in 1994, under a beautiful tree along the Delaware River in Milford, Pennsylvania. He was an international literary rock star. Frank was reluctant at first to bring up some of the subject matter from his book Angelas Ashes, but over time he approved additions to the script that he felt were worthwhile. Platt and Conroy have been doing the show together since 2000 and have developed a real camaraderie. There is a lot of improvisation that has to do with audience reaction. If someone coughs we might say God bless you. We talk to the audience from time to time. We have a lot of fun with it. Incidentally, the word blaguards is a term most used on the Emerald Isle. Dublin coal laborers were called black guards. When off duty they would get drunk and boisterous, so the name became blaguards, meaning dirty drunken bastards. The term was later softened to mean a charming scoundrel. The McCourts mother always called them blaguards as they were growing up in Limerick. A Couple of Blaguards opens November 15 and plays through November 26 at The Herb Strauss Theater, 2200 Periwinkle Way. For tickets call 472-6862. As Malachy McCourt said, If you dont have a good evening, you should have yourself checked to make sure you havent died during the day. Blessings! Jarlath Conroy and Howard Platt in A Couple of Blaguards CROWs Giving Tree Festival Kicks Off Holiday Season On The IslandsPlans are underway for CROWs annual Giving Tree Festival scheduled for Sunday, December 4, at The Sanctuary Golf Club. Sparkling and festive holiday trees, wreaths, and garlands will be featured at the clubhouse in a silent auction, raising awareness and support for the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife. The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company is once again the Presenting Sponsor for the event. CROWs Giving Tree Festival is a way to make holiday wishes come true for our patients, said Susan Tucker, CROW treasurer. We are grateful to the Sanibel Captiva Trust Company for their continued support of our mission. Their generosity will continue to help us make a difference in the lives of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. CROW Secretary and Chair of this event Daniel Moore-Thompson has been busy recruiting designers. The Giving Tree Festival has become an island tradition and we are thrilled to have the support of this special community. We are especially proud to showcase the true artistry of Luc Century again this year! The generosity of such talented artists ensures that we can treat our patients throughout the year, reflected Moore-Thompson. One special feature this year will be tree ornaments designed by The Sanibel Middle School Clay/Art Class, an elective for students in grades 6, 7 and 8. They meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings with their instructor, local artist, Andi McCarter. This year the class of 22 students, made ceramic holiday tree ornaments for the CROW event. These ornaments vary in color and shape and reflect different styles of creativity. The art students had a lot of fun creating these special pieces of art to support CROWs efforts to save native wildlife. The popular island event draws locals and visitors from all around our community. The centerpiece of the festival is The Giving Tree that offers opportunities to donate funds to meet specific needs of CROW for the upcoming year. Its inspiring to see the wide range of wildlife that CROW rehabilitates and releases back to its natural habitat its the reason we do what we do, said Executive Director Steve Greenstein. continued on page 32 Sanibel Middle School Clay/Art Class along with instructor Andi McCarter

If you havent spotted him individually, maybe youve spotted a few of his friends in their bright yellow Sanibel Bike Club jerseys cruising on their bikes to one of the islands great breakfast places every Saturday. The Sanibel Bike Clubs Saturday bike rides offer short-, mediumand long-distance trips and are designed for all levels of cycling; the club invites anyone with an interest in bicycling with the group to join them for one of these morning rides starting at the Sanibel Community Center. Sharbaugh is a current board member of the bike club and although he didnt come to Rotary specifically to recruit us for membership in the bike club or for the Kiwanis Club (oh, yes, hes one of those), he did want to apprise Rotarians of the bike club activities connected with the improvements to the infrastructure of the Sanibels shared use paths, safety benefits of recent improvements and promote the Trails in Motion Fund campaign. Sharbaugh stated that a portion of the Sanibels Bike Clubs Trails in Motion Fund (monies contributed by bike club members, local businesses, Sanibel residents, and visitors to Sanibel) were used to partner with the City of Sanibel to establish a Shared Use Path Master Plan and to help plan needed extensions to the system. The paving portion of the new Dunlop/Wooster path has now been completed. The striping and crosswalks are in progress; still to come are lighting and signage, Sharbaugh explained. This exciting and long-needed new path begins on the north side of Periwinkle at St. Michaels Church, proceeds east on Periwinkle, north along Dunlop, then west along Dunlop and Wooster to Palm Ridge Road. Thus, the library, city hall, and BIG ARTS will all be conveniently accessible by bikes. There is a new path alongside of San-Cap Road in the Santiva area. The new path extends the existing path along San-Cap Road to the Blind Pass Bridge, allowing cyclists and other users to safely navigate between the paths on Sanibel and the widened road lanes of Captiva Drive. The Sanibel Bicycle Club has long been an advocate for completion of this section of path. With $5,000 in funding from the clubs Sanibel Trails-In-Motion Fund, the club is joining with the City of Sanibel to make it happen. Total cost of the project is estimated to be $63,000. Shared use path safety issues were also addressed. Responding to numerous suggestions from bike club members, the City of Sanibel took on the project of improving visibility at the northeast corner of the intersection of Periwinkle Way and Causeway Boulevard. As a result, cyclists coming on-island riding the path along Causeway Boulevard intending to cross Periwinkle will now be able to see traffic from the East End departing the island. And those vehicles will be able to see the cyclists. It may not be the ultimate solution, but it is a big step forward. Thanks to the Department of Public Works for the improvement. The extensive improvements for the shared use path alongside Tarpon Bay Road north of Periwinkle have now been completed. The new path includes a minimum of two feet of separation from the roadway and is eight feet wide. As an extra bonus, the rumble strips that cyclists have complained about for years, have been removed. Sanibels path system has been recognized as one of the islands crown jewels by visitors, by residents, by our city government and by the greater biking world.

(Guests are welcome to bring their lunches.) Lemmon will share how her novels evolved from her imagination and life experiences on Sanibel, and shell also discuss the craft of writing. Her books: Portion of the Sea, Sand in My Eyes, Sanibel Scribbles and Whisper from the Ocean, will be available for purchase. Lemmon has had a lifelong love for Sanibel and shells, which started with annual 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. For additional information about the Shell Museums Friday Lunch Hour series, contact Shell Museum Public Programs Specialist Diane Thomas at dothomas@shellmuseum.org, or phone 395-2233. Christine Lemmon will discuss her novels and writing at the Shell Museum Adopt-a-Class At The Shell Museum Since 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 4th grade children, including those from disadvantaged neighborhoods, to tour the museum at no cost to the school. Lee County teachers who have participated in previous Adopt-a-Class programs report the field trip as the highlight of the school year for their 4th graders. While on a field trip to the shell museum, students learn about mollusks, which are soft-bodied invertebrates that make their own shell. The museum visit consists of a 25-minute introductory film that covers mollusk anatomy, reproduction, locomotion, habitats, and how these creatures fit into the oceans food web. Students are then given four 15-minute guided tours which include a hands-on shell introduction in the learning laboratory, a shell identification matching game, the Great Hall of Shells tour, and the Live Tank program where students encounter live marine mollusks. The information 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 4th grade students. However, due to continued cutbacks in Lee County school budgets, sponsorships from individuals and businesses are vital to the continuation of the program. With your support, Adopt-a-Class will once again be a highly successful educational outreach program for 2011-2012. Cost for full sponsorship at $450 or co-sponsorship at $300. The full amount of your contribution is 100 percent tax deductible. If you would like to help sponsor the Adopt-a-Class program, contact Amanda Stirn at astirn@shellmuseum.org.

Nautical Triviaby Bryan HenrySailors should feel at home in the nave of a church, the main part between the two side aisles, because the word comes from the Latin navis, ship, which its shape sometimes resembles. From the Latin navis we get navy, naval, nautical, navigate and nausea, literally ship sickness, what we call seasickness today. At one time a tarpaulin was a slang term for a sailors wide-brimmed storm hat. The word quarantine is of nautical origin. It comes to us via Italian quarantina from the Latin quadraginta, literally meaning 40. Originally, 40 days of isolation were imposed upon ships, persons and goods arriving at a port when suspected of carrying a contagious disease, 40 days being considered enough time for any disease to run its course. The word lingo was originally a sailors term meaning jargon. The Universal Kalendar, the first nautical almanac in the United States, was compiled by Samuel Stearns and published in Boston in 1782. 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.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 201122 Cold Front Fishing Patterns Of Winterby Capt. Matt MitchellDespite windy and cold conditions this week, fishing was still pretty good. Hiding from the wind and trying to find feeding fish is just the typical winter pattern out on the water. Redfish, trout, gag grouper, flounder, Spanish mackerel and pomapno were among the species that kept clients smiling this week. The sound still remains loaded with feeding birds and feeding fish, all working on the same migrating bait schools. With a cold front and strong winds it seems winter really arrived this week in a big way. Is it just me or did winter just start early this year? I have learned over the years that once we get that first cold front, it opens up the gate and they just seem to push through every week to 10 days, all winter long. Fishing around cold fronts can be really frustrating. Fishing can be very good or really bad, dependingon which side of the front you fish. This proved very true this week as beginning a few days before the cold front rolled through the bite just got better and better. Right when the winds switched and came from the south then west, as the front got really close, the fish ate hard as they know they are not going to eat for a day or two after. The day after the front passed, fishing was tough at best with fish hunkered down in their winter time haunts with lock jaw. Once conditions started to warm back up they began to eat again. When water temperatures drop quickly and we have windy high pressure conditions, most gamefish simply just do not want to eat. Luckily we have other species to catch that dont seem effected by cold fronts at all. With winter being the busiest time of the year, catching fish on the backside, aka the wrong side of a cold front, is a must do. Some of the things I do to find a bite in these toughest of conditions is to get in an area that is somewhat sheltered from the old north wind and at least managable to fish. I figure, if Im comfortable the fish are comfortable too. Close proximity to deep water is also a good thing. If you can pair these with good tide movement or even water moving from just the wind, you can generally bend a rod. When things are tough, I also downsize my bait and tackle. Live shrimp will often draw a bite when nothing else will. Rig these live shrimp on a smaller hook and use lighter leader. I like to go to 20 pound flourocarbon. Fish the live shrimp on or close to the bottom. The colder the water the slower I fish the bait too, often simply letting it set on the bottom, giving it just a little hop once in a while. My winter time rig consists of a 1/4 oz. jig head with a 1/0 hook and a medium size live shrimp. Some things I do like about our winter time fishing though is the variety of species you can catch. One deep mangrove shoreline or creek can produce lots of fish, with the same rig producing a different type of fish just about every cast. Winter time fishing also means you dont generally have to go very far from home to catch fish. Creek systems and flats close to home are often as good as any to target. Less running means more time fishing. During winter, we also have the clearest and prettiest water of the year in the sound.continued on page 23 ISLAND MARINE SERVICES, INC.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 201124 San-Cap Audubon Needs Volunteers For Christmas Bird CountSan-Cap Audubon will conduct its annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) on Saturday, December 17, 2011. The results of the local count will be forwarded to the National Audubon Society for inclusion in the 112th National Christmas Bird Count. More than 50,000 observers participate each year in this census of early-winter bird populations. The results of their efforts are compiled into the longest running database in ornithology, representing over a century of unbroken data on trends of early-winter bird populations across the Americas. Simply put, the Christmas Bird count, or CBC, is citizen science in action.Prior to the turn of the 20th century, people engaged in a holiday tradition known as the Christmas Side Hunt. They would choose sides and go into the field with their guns; whoever brought in the biggest pile of feathered (and furred) quarry won. Conservation was in its infancy around the turn of the century, and many observers and scientists were becoming concerned about declining bird populations. Beginning on Christmas Day 1900, ornithologist Frank Chapman, an early officer in the then-budding Audubon Society, proposed a new holiday tradition, a Christmas Bird Census that would count birds in the holidays rather than hunt them. So began the Christmas Bird Count. Thanks to the inspiration of Frank M. Chapman and the enthusiasm of 27 dedicated birders, 25 Christmas Bird Counts were held that day. The locations ranged from Toronto, Ontario; to Pacific Grove, California with most counts in or near the population centers in northeastern North America. Those original 27 Christmas Bird Counters tallied a total of 90 species on all the counts combined.Volunteers are needed for this years CBC. Birding skills are desirable but not necessary. Anyone who would like to participate in this years Sanibel-Captiva CBC can obtain addition information by calling 395-3804.

Laughing gulls are not the largest of the gull family but are smaller birds that can be seen running around on the beach. The males have black heads in the summer, which is their breeding plumage. This gull came to CROW from Lovers Key in Fort Myers on September 17. Someone called and told us a bird had fishing line hanging out of his mouth a telltale sign theres a hook somewhere. We always hope the hook is still attached to the line, explained Wildlife Rehabilitator Robin Bast. X-rays were taken and sure enough, a fish hook could clearly be seen in the gulls digestive tract, meaning he would need surgery. The day before surgery, the bird received pre-operative care in the form of two different antibiotics, pain medications and subcutaneous fluids. The following day, the 18th, he had surgery. The surgery was performed by one of CROWs relief veterinarians, Dr. David Nichols, a member of CROWs board of directors. The hook was in the ventriculus, which is part of the stomach in birds, Bast said. Birds have a couple of sections to their digestive tracts. This is one of them and comparable to the stomach in humans. Bast explained that birds have some extra parts to their digestive tracts compared to humans. The ventriculus, where the hook was found in this case, is a second stomach that does the mechanical grinding and breakdown of food. The proventriculus comes before the ventriculus, and is the first stomach where the gastric acids and secretions start the chemical breakdown of food. The hook was surgically removed and the gull made it through the night an important milestone in this kind of injury. Once you get the hook out, thats not the end of the road; thats not the hardest part, said Bast. He still had a long way to go. The incision looked good the next day and staff took precautions to go easy on the gulls stomach. He was tube-fed fish slurry. He remained on two antibiotics, pain meds, and subcutaneous fluids as long as he required supportive post-surgery care. About five days after his surgery, the gull started eating solid food in the form of smelt and super worms. Still, antibiotics were continued through the 26th or about 10 days post-surgery. His sutures were removed two days after completion of antibiotics. Two days after finishing all medications, the gull headed outside to CROWs shorebird cage during the day for what Bast calls day camp. But because of the location of his surgery, the doctor had to pluck feathers on the birds abdomen, so staff was worried about the gull getting cold if he couldnt thermoregulate properly. He was taken inside at night and returned to the ICU to avoid any problems maintaining his body temperature. Then we basically were feeding him, cleaning him, giving him supportive care until his feathers grew back in, said Bast.continued on page 31 The radiograph of the second bird shows almost the same circumstances a hook in his stomach that must be surgically removed to save his life The hook the first gull swallowed is obvious in this radiograph. Note the size of the hook compared to the size of the bird

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 201128 Plant SmartThe Home Landscape, A Creative Endeavorby Gerri ReavesWhen Suzanne Sutton and Jerry Haberle planned the landscape for their new Fort Myers home in 2003, they had a list of priorities based on years of maintaining large yards. Overall, they wanted a low-maintenance landscape that featured mostly native species. Other goals were to minimize the square footage of grass and include only trees no bigger than patio size. Water conservation was a criterion, too, so they coordinated the irrigation zones with the water requirements of species, many of which are drought-tolerant. Other considerations in choosing plants were color and wildlife friendliness. Those principles made many of the choices for them. Palm trees were out, Sutton said, because even one fallen frond makes an otherwise well-maintained landscape look messy. Natives like seagrapes (Coccoloba uvifera) were out, too, because they are not small-leaved and self-mulching. After years of maintaining yards in Southwest Florida, they knew how much of the work to do themselves and when to let the professionals step in. They also did their homework and approached the project well-armed with resources like the Southern Living Landscape book, the main source for design The result of knowledgeable planning a lovely low-maintenance landscape photo by Gerri Reaves In addition to being wildlife-friendly, the plants in this backyard form a natural privacy buffer from the golf course photo by Gerri Reaves G R I L LR A W B A RSEAFOOD IF OUR SEAFOOD WERE ANY FRESHER, WE WOULD BE SERVING IT UNDER WATERSantiva472-5353Sanibel472-6939Bokeelia283-5959Fort Myers476-9000 MEET AND GREET THE EVERBLADES The Florida Everblades Team will be at the Lazy Flamingo Fort Myers location on Tuesday, November 15 from 5 to 7 p.m., 12951 McGregor Boulevard.

29 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 2011concepts. Waterwise, South Florida Landscapes (free from the South Florida Water Management District) was very useful for choosing appropriate plant species. They let the landscape contractor do the basic work, and they supplemented it over time. What are the advantages of taking charge of your landscape design besides the sheer fun of it? Haberle actually enjoys doing his own yard work, which he describes as more recreation than labor. He mows the lawn in only 20 minutes using a self-propelled mulching mower. Their plan has also saved them money in a number of ways. Once the landscape was established, they no longer had to buy mulch, because the mower makes mulch of what they prune. Plants such as Simpson stoppers and wild coffee reseed reduced the need to buy new plants. Their yard attracts birds and butterflies galore. Cottontail rabbits, armadillos, and even gopher tortoise frequent the yard, where native plants provide both food and cover. Northern cardinals and mockingbirds particularly like the mature wax myrtle (Myrica cerifera) shrubs for nesting. The rabbits like the low-growing non-native juniper (Juniperus chinensis parsonii) for cover, and the firebushes (Hamelia patens) attract butterflies and rubythroated hummingbirds. Sutton and Haberle have succinct advice for anyone embarking on such a project: educate yourself about landscaping, get professional advice, but maintain control of the project. Plant Smart explores sustainable gardening practices that will help you create an environmentally responsible, low-maintenance South Florida landscape. Turtle 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.

Caloosahatchee Oxbow And Riverlore Cruises ReturnJoin the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation for a riverboat adventure on the Oxbow and Riverlore Cruise to experience the historical Caloosahatchee on November 25, the Friday after Thanksgiving. This guided monthly cruise explores the meanders of the historic upriver Caloosahatchee. It follows the river back to a time when a waterfall served as the headwaters of the Caloosahatchee and settlers braved living amongst the wilderness. The 2.5-hour adventure begins by locking through the WP Franklin Lock in Olga. Heading east toward Alva, the cruise enters the historic bends of the river and revisits the activities of the pioneers who traveled the same river to find paradise. Stories of the settlements and their adventures are blended with an understanding of the rivers oxbows, the wild creatures that call it home and the challenges the river faces. The tour is guided by Rae Ann Wessel, a river researcher, long-time river advocate, historian and SCCF Natural Resource Policy Director. The vessel is the stable and spacious 47-passenger Manatee Rover pontoon boat that features daily manatee tours. All seats have a great view for photographs and bird watching.

31 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 2011 From page 26Laughing GullsOn October 25, the patient was flying really well, his feathers had grown back to the point where he could maintain his body temperature, and he was ready to go home. He was released back to Lovers Key where he came from, Bast said. I wasnt there, but I was told he flew right off. But not even two weeks later, CROW received another laughing gull from Blind Pass even worse than the first one. He had monofilament tangled around his neck and left wing, Bast said. Fishing line was also around his mouth and going into his mouth again a sign that theres a hook somewhere. While some hooks will get caught on the lips or in the mouths of gulls, others are swallowed because a fish is attached and then the real problems start. The first order of business in this case was to remove the fishing line from around the wing and the neck, then to tape part of it to the beak to prevent the hook from going further down the birds digestive tract. You never want to cut the line completely, said Bast. She thought this bird had probably picked up hooks that were lying on the beach. Its a common thing we see here, she said. In this case, the fishing line around the gulls mouth also caused injuries. How can CROW determine how long the bird has been entangled or hooked? You can get a good idea if the wound is old based on the birds condition, said Bast. If theyve been down for a while, they havent been eating well and you can feel their muscle has wasted away. Also, their keel (equivalent to the sternum in humans) is more prominent/easier to feel upon physical exam because the muscle has wasted away. X-rays showed, like the first bird, that a hook was in the ventriculus so the same pre-op care was begun. CROW relief vet Eileen Rowan performed the surgery to remove the hook. The gull survived the big hurdle of that first night post-op and staff commenced supportive care. Four days post-op, the gull was eating solid food on his own. We were still treating wounds on the side of his mouth. Some of the tissue was actually dying off and had to be debrided. Underneath was healthy tissue, so it was okay and he was healing nicely, Bast said. His sutures were removed on the 15th, 10 days post-op, but the antibiotics were continued a little longer because of his mouth wounds. He was on antibiotics for a total of 2 weeks. By this time, he was getting pretty rambunctious, Bast stated. He still needed antibiotics, but he didnt think so. He was able to go into the shorebird cage and stay through the night because he hadnt had as many feathers plucked and thermoregulation was not an issue. Soon he was flying really well and was released back at Blind Pass on the 25th. Theyre usually pretty good at telling you when theyre ready to move on to the next stage of care, Bast said. They cant actually speak but they do certain things that let you know. Bast warns that birds and sea turtles, too cannot survive with fish hooks inside them. Theyll either starve or die of infection, she said. Here are some tips that will help avoid these serious injuries if everyone follows them: If you see hooks on the beach, pick them up; dispose of them in PVC pipes provided in almost all fishing areas. Do not cut the fishing line. If the bird is entangled, cut just enough so he is not in distress, then if you can, tape the end of the line to the birds beak. This prevents the hook from traveling deeper into the birds digestive tract.

Myers, FL 33931239.482.6765 Beach Cleanup At Picnic IslandThe Keep Lee County Beautiful Marine Cleanup is an annual event during which volunteers go out to various locations by boats, kayaks, canoes, jet skis and anything else that floats, to remove monofilament fishing line and other harmful debris from the mangrove areas of Lee County. Due to the focus on fishing line, the project committee has dubbed the cleanup Monofilament Madness. It is hoped that through educational awareness, the people who are causing the problem will be reached and their behavior modified so that, among other reasons, wildlife will be spared agonizing deaths from entanglement in monofilament fishing line. On October 30, volunteers from Edison State College, Fort Myers and Sanibel joined Adventures in Paradises Captain Bob Spriggs at Port Sanibel Marina where everyone boarded the Sun Princess and cruised out to Picnic Island where the cleaning collection got under way. Trash, from bed mattresses to miles of monofilament line, filled the receptacles. Cleaning Picnic Island is a passion at Adventures in Paradise. We want to always do our part in helping keep our wildlife safe and in a clean environment as well as assist everyone lucky enough to get out to Picnic Island in enjoying a clean island, said Evelyn Stewart of Adventures in Paradise. Between three collection locations, there were a total of 175 volunteers who helped gather more than 1,400 pounds of litter, debris, and monofilament fishing line. The ultimate goal, of course, is to eliminate the monofilament and trash problem, and the success of attaining that goal will be measured by the lack of the problem. Until then, the cleanups success is measured by the growing awareness and willingness of hundreds of volunteers to dedicate a Sunday to the cause. Students from Edison State College and other volunteers teamed up with Adventures in Paradise to clean up the beachesFrom page 17CROWs Giving Tree FestivalFor 2012, we have needs for new surgical equipment in our clinic, we want to focus on medical research, and improve our student programming, All of these needs require money and we hope the Giving Tree event will continue to be a source of those funds.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 201136 Voted BEST OF THE ISLANDSSpecials Every Day What Would You Ask For?submitted by Jenna Sullivan, Sanibel Sea SchoolWhen parents ask their son what he wants to do for his 7th birthday, they might have a few possibilities in mind perhaps a trip to a roller rink or a pizza parlor, or maybe to see a movie. But for TJ and Catherine from Kansas City, the answer from their son Tripp was as determined as it was unique: Tripp wanted to go back to Sanibel Sea School to learn about fish. In a climate where kids are expected to try to avoid school on their birthdays, we felt very honored to have Tripp and his little brother Jack decide to attend our fish class. The two brothers had already attended Sea School earlier in the week to learn about crabs we took advantage of low tides associated with the new moon to check out the crabs at Bunche Beach and were rewarded with the discovery of a really huge horseshoe crab in the wrack line. We were all thrilled to have the boys, along with their dad and grandfather, back for another ocean adventure. On his birthday, Tripp was the most successful fisherman weve ever seen at Colony Beach. And it wasnt just birthday luck Tripp is a seining wizard. He kept the bottom of the seine net close to the sand to prevent fish from escaping, held the pole at the exact right angle to keep the fish in the net, and braved the waves to stand in the perfect spot. We caught pinfish and sardines, whole schools of tiny baitfish, two aggressive juvenile permits that swam indignantly around our bucket probably around 30 fish in all. We got down low in the sand and peered into the see-through bucket, checking out and discussing the different advantages of all the diverse colors, fin shapes, lateral lines, and behaviors of our fish. Finally, we tipped the bucket over and watched our new friends swim free back into the Gulf of Mexico. No one wanted to leave the beach when it was time to go. For Tripp, going to the beach with his dad, grandfather, brother, and Sanibel Sea School was the best birthday present ever (this from a boy who was getting to go to Legoland the very next day). It doesnt often seem to be the case, in the mind of a seven-year-old boy, that engaging in an educational course is considered as much fun as a trip to Legoland. But when education is coupled with adventures in nature, and the excitement is shared with family members and friends, it can lead to an experience as thrilling as any birthday present. Our advice to all parents is simple: wherever you are, however you can, take your kids out in nature. Dont just buy them the newest gadget give them the gift of the ocean (or the forest, or the park down the street). The way they respond might be surprising.Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3 dedicated to a world in which all people value, understand and care for the ocean.

Tripp poses with a permit before quickly returning the fish to gulf waters as his brother Jack looks on Grab A Seat And Enjoy The Show The CROW Picture Show offers an insiders look at why critters come to CROW, and features photos of the wild animals who wind up there. Last year, Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Southwest Floridas only wildlife hospital, cared for 4,111 sick, injured, and orphaned animals. Of the more than 200 different species, 54 percent were birds, 38 percent were mammals, and eight percent were reptiles/ amphibians/ invertebrates. Due to restrictions imposed by governmental agencies, CROW cannot allow visitors to view patients in person. But in this 30-minute presentation visitors can see photos of current and past patients, with commentary by CROW fellow Hilaire Sampson, a senior at Wichita State University who is majoring in biology. Sampson will be working and learning at CROW until the end of this year and plans to become a veterinarian. The CROW Picture Show is presented each Friday at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission for adults is $5, teens are $3, and free for members and children 12 and under. Admission includes the presentation, plus the opportunity to explore CROWs hands-on educational facility and become familiar with its efforts to save wildlife through compassion, care and education.

Known for their rich blend of Western harmony and unique sense of humor, Riders in the Sky is a two-time Grammy Award-winning group that has captivated audiences of all ages across the country for more than three decades. The group has made 700 separate appearances at Nashvilles Grande Ole Opry and is best known to younger audiences for their performance of Woodys Roundup in Toy Story 2. Award-winning singer/songwriter Jim Van Slyke performs all the hits from the distinguished catalogue of Neil Sedaka in his critically acclaimed Sedaka Show. The show has even attracted the attention of its inspiration: Sedaka joined Van Slyke onstage for duet performances in New York City, San Francisco, and Hollywood. Sedakas hits include Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen, and Your Precious Love. David Pomeranzs Chaplin: A Life in Concert is a musical dramatization of the life story of Charlie Chaplin, of which famed American singer and pianist Michael Feinstein calls, an imaginative, emotional and inspiring journey that leaves the audience walking on air. Bay Street Brassworks delights audiences by performing a variety of musical genres, from classical to show tunes and swing to Dixieland.

BIG ARTS Visual Arts Committee Co-Chair To Speak At First Art League Meeting Of The YearThe co-chairperson of the BIG ARTS Visual Arts Committee, Deborah Butler, will open the 2011-2012 season of the Sanibel Captiva Art League on Thursday, November 17, at 1:30 at the Sanibel Community Center 2173 Periwinkle Way. Refreshments will be served. Butler will give a short talk on the color red and its use in art. Butler received her degree in English from Florida State University and returned to school to obtain a further degree in Art History. She is a retired professor of Art History and Humanities at Edison State College in Fort Myers. She led college students on summer tours to the cultural centers of Europe for 17 years. For the past two years she has conducted popular classes at the BIG ARTS Winter Academy, called The Story of Art and The Changing Story of Art. She is also an artist. The use of red in paintings is a constant issue for painters. A warm and advancing color, it is the color of passion and danger, and a favorite of graphic artists and commercial designers. It is the theme for the leagues open juried show, called A Touch of Red, to be held at BIG ARTS in 2012. This meeting is open to the public. The Sanibel Captive Art League meets on the third Thursday of every month at the Community Center. For information about the league, log onto the league website at sancapart.com.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 201144 ARTREACH Students On Sanibel Produce PaintingsStudents from Sanibel and the nearby area participated in a four-week program on human trafficking prevention at BIG ARTS this fall. They were educated about human trafficking and their own vulnerability to the dangers of trafficking. Girls between the ages of 11 and 15 are the most targeted group by traffickers and cases have been found throughout Lee County. Students heard Mary Lewis, a local social worker who has led human trafficking efforts in Lee County for years and who has worked extensively with youth in Lee County. Along with Nola Theiss, executive director, volunteers from the community including Gari Lewis and Eileen Roberts led the program. Students produced two large paintings which, together with 12 other paintings, will be exhibited at the Unitarian-Universalist Church in Fort Myers in November during the Made By Us Event on November 19. Among Us shows how trafficking exists in our midst but often goes undetected by those who are unaware of the crime, and Priceless shows how the beauty of a young girl is devalued by a society which sees it as a commodity and yet the girl herself is priceless. The class was conducted by Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships (HTAP), a Sanibel-based charity whose mission is to build awareness of modern day slavery and to develop prevention programs which can be shared among the many local coalitions it has helped form across the country. The ARTREACH program is supported by a grant from Zonta Club of SanibelCaptiva and by private donations. The Sanibel ARTREACH program was the fifth ARTREACH program conducted by HTAP in Lee County. Currently HTAP is running two afterschool programs conducted at the Quality Life Center and the Pine Manor Association in Lee County. Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships is currently holding its annual fundraising mail campaign to support awareness and ARTREACH programs. Tax-exempt donations can be sent to HTAP, PO Box 1113, Sanibel, FL 33957. Contact Nola Theiss at 395-2635 or email at nola@humantraffickingawareness.org.

MahoneyShattering explosions. Cold. Dirty. Afraid. Moving insecurely from day to day. Eat out. Sleep in. Scream out. Wishing to be anywhere else. Few women to show heroism. Little wine to drink. Precious little song. Rest never normal. Grimy physically and mentally. Home-sickness dulled by danger. Forgotten emotions cringe When called from hiding. Nearly blind to bravery, Death and battlefield waste. God. Let us live another day.

Some of the winning artists expressed themselves with animated books, mummies, robots and children enjoying a good read, Williams said. Judges selected one winning design from each location. Those designs can be viewed on the Lee County Library System website at www.leecounty.com/library. Each of the winning artists will be invited to a special reception hosted by Art of the Olympians in downtown Fort Myers at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, November 18, where they will receive a supply of their bookmarks to share with friends, family and classmates as well as a gift card to Books-AMillion and a pass for two aboard the Pieces of Eight Pirate Cruise.

Martin Bok recently joined the Sanibel Day Spa and if youre wanting to update your style whether it be a new haircut or a cosmetic makeover hes your man. Bok honed his skills while working for 10 years on Chanels international team as a make-up artist. Pam Atuso, salon owner, said Bok has a passion for fashion-forward hair. Bok said his focus is classics with an edge. He explained, The classics always come back. You can take a Chanel bob, shatter all those edges, mess it up a bit and create some movement. You can have three or four styles out of one. Bok, who owned a hair salon in Washington, DC, also has the distinction of having cut Hillary Clintons hair several times when filling in for her regular stylist. He said cutting hair the Vidal Sassoon way is about precision and weight distribution to create more movement. He tailors the cut and style to each clients appearance, hair type and lifestyle. I love to show a client different ways to style her hair so she is not stuck in a rut. They really appreciate that and they take more interest in the way they look, he said. Everyone has their own individual style, but they can get lost. Having worked in other areas of Lee County, Bok says hes thrilled to be on Sanibel, where people really care about how they look. What about all that beach hair Bok has to tangle with in Southwest Florida? Beach hair can be sexy hair with the right cut, he said. It can still be manageable and chic. There are so many styles and cuts out there. The number one reason (a hairdresser) loses a client is she gets in a rut. That wont happen with Bok. When each client sits in his chair, he says he first listens carefully to what she wants, then as he works he explains each step.

The narrated cruise tells the story of Floridas earliest settlers from Spanish explorers, the booming cattle trade, fishing settlements and early pioneers, to Thomas Edisons early explorations of Southwest Florida and the importance of the ecology of the river to the environment today. Cruising to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates from Captiva Island is a wonderful opportunity to discover the ecology of the Back Bay Estuary and the cultural history of the area. Pine Island Sound and the river have been vitally important to Southwest Florida for centuries, said Paul McCarthy, president, Captiva Cruises. After lunch passengers will enjoy a private guided tour of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates, one of the top 10 most-visited historic sites in the nation. Having just completed a $12 million restoration, the Edison Ford received the top award for preservation from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Visitors will enjoy the 20 acres of gardens, historic homes, Edison Botanic Research Lab and Edison Ford Museum as they glimpse into the lives of two of the nations most innovative inventors of our time. Edison arrived at Punta Rassa in 1885 and cruised up the river to Fort Myers by boat, where he purchased land along the Caloosahatchee and built his home, known as Seminole Lodge. The Edison and Ford families enjoyed the beautiful waterways of Southwest Florida, often fishing, shelling, boating and exploring our beaches, said Chris Pendleton, Edison Ford president & CEO. Guests will step back in time to experience old Florida just as the Edison and Ford families did over 100 years ago. Ticket cost is $75 adults, $65 children (ages 12 and under) plus tax and includes cruise, Edison Ford admission and lunch. Seating is limited and reservations are suggested by calling 472-5300.

From Goat To Hero, Thats The Story Of Former Florida Great Tim Tebowby Ed FrankWhether its sports, politics and most other things in life, how fickle we are. Take the case of quarterback Tim Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner who led the University of Florida to two national championships, and was the 2010 top draft pick by the Denver Broncos. Not your protypical NFL quarterback in style, and with a somewhat polarizing personality, the Denver faithful were ready to run him out of town two weeks ago after a 35-point home field shellacking by the Detroit Lions. But turn the clocks forward just one week and he suddenly became the Rocky Mountain High when he ran, passed and directed the Broncos to a 38-24 upset win over the Oakland Raiders on the road. You do not have to be a student of history to recall the constant questions, the constant criticism about his throwing style despite the astounding success he accomplished as a Gator. His footwork was slow, his drawn out release of the football wouldnt work in the NFL, etc. etc. etc., his critics proclaimed. Well, that footwork was the key to Denvers thumping of Oakland last Sunday when the Broncos coaching staff devised a run-option attack often employed in college football but not seen in professional football for years. While the Raider defense kept crashing inside, Tebow sprinted to the outside either handing off to running back Willis McGahee or running himself. The result: The best running game for Denver in more than a decade with Tebow sprinting for 118 yards and McGahee for 163. In addition, he threw for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Tebows performance last Sunday brought back memories of his glory years in Gainesville. The pass-heavy NFL is not accustomed to the throwback style of Tebow, yet it should come as no surprise. In his rookie season a year ago, although playing sparingly, he became the first quarterback in NFL history to rush for a touchdown in his first three starts. Tebows performance Sunday should quiet the debate whether it should be the former Gator or Kyle Orton calling the signals. The 3-5 Broncos are just a game behind the 4-4 Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs and the San Diego Chargers in the tight AFC West. All three lost at home Sunday. And dont be surprised if Denver stays with the college-style offense that Tebow can exploit. Florida Everblades End Long Road Trip with Back-To-Back Wins The nine-game road trip of the Florida Everblades ended successfully last weekend with back-to-back wins, their first two-game winning streak in the young season. The 1-0 victory last Friday was followed with a 5-2 win Saturday over Greenville with two power-play goals by Chris Murray. Florida finished the 2-1/2-week road trip with a 3-6 records. The Everblades are home at Germain Arena this week for three games, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday against the Wheeling Nailers, currently in first place in the ECHL Atlantic Division with a 6-1 season record. All three have 7:30 p.m. starts. Florida began the week with a 4-6-1 season record and a third-place standing in the ECHL South Division. Twins Fire GM Bill Smith; Ryan Back as Interim Boss After one of the worst seasons in the history of the Minnesota Twins, General Manager Bill Smith was ousted earlier this week and replaced by former GM Terry Ryan on an interim basis. No one in the Twins organization wanted to win any more than Bill, Twins owner and CEO Jim Pohlad said, but we differed in the scope and approach that was required. The Twins finished the 2011 season 63-99, 32 games behind firstplace Detroit. Smith, a member of the Twins organization for 25 years, served as GM four years and under his direction won two American League Central Division titles, 2009 and 2010. A 28-year veteran of the Twins organization, Ryan served as GM 13 years (1994-2007) and was the second longest tenured GM in baseball when he stepped aside.

Beachview Mens Golf In Shamblesby JW BoyntonThe Beachview mens golf season got underway Saturday, November 5 with a two-best-balls-of-four Shambles tournament. Under the Shambles format, a foursome chooses its best drive and each man plays his own ball into the hole from that spot. Individual scores come in much lower, demonstrating the importance of keeping your drive in the fairway. New club president, Jay Allen, brought his enthusiastic members up-to-date on upcoming events, including the major two-day Fall Classic Tournament on November 8 and 12, the popular mens opening dinner on November 17, and the inaugural, season-long match play tournament. Allen finished with one of his signature lawyer jokes: A golf pro, a teacher, and a lawyer arrived at the pearly gates... Oh, never mind. New club general manager, Scott Hatto, went over Shambles rules and offered a valuable tip about short chip shots, which everyone forgot immediately. New PGA Golf Professional Gene Taylor put the foursomes together and handled scoring mechanics. Everyone was glad to see regulars Mike Jerrard and Allen Schwocho back in the pro shop for another year. The course was soggy due to the recent heavy rains, but it was a beautiful Sanibel morning and the competition, as usual, was fierce. This writer and his teammates, Phil Jones, Wayne Turner, and Jerry Shay, were sure their amazing 32-under-par score of 108 would be good enough to win. But no, when Hatto announced the scores it was Rich Rompala, last years most consistent winner (Presidents Cup), and teammates Bjorn Olsson, Jerry Mader, and Louisiana oilman John Moores in first place with a score of 98. Dick Codair, Dave Wisely, Ralph Barton, and a blind draw finished second just a stroke behind, thanks in part to Codairs net 1 and Ralph Bartons net 0 scores on the third hole. Wiselys tee shot just rolled past the hole his team would have scored a net 0 on the hole and tied for first had it gone in. Former club champion Bill Fellows, David Lewis, Bill Sadd, and Richard Chocol finished third at 101. Improbably finishing in last place, 21 strokes off the pace, was the strong team of Handicap Chair Anthony Baldino, Al Krause, Jim Sauer, and new member Mike Zembko. After a fish-and-chips lunch served in the new Beachview Bistro dining room, everyone went home well-fed and ready for some college football. Great Service... Great Dedication... Great Results!!!

Sandycappers Sean Crickmore had the only other 4-0 score for the night. A miracle bank shot to pocket the eight ball by Ken Rasi propelled Bunts Ball Busters to a tight 9-7 win over Bathroom Magic. Rasi won both of his games and holds his teams top shooting average with 88 percent. In their final game of a four game set Jack Dalton called a foul on Dave Doane for shooting the wrong ball. With cue ball in hand Dalton lined up what was to be his winning shot and drilled it. Doane then pointed out, Jack, you also just shot the wrong ball. With ball in hand Doane pocketed the eight and won the game. When questioned after their match neither player could explain their back-to-back mental lapses.

Local Teen To Hold Fundraiser A 17-year-old Fort Myers High School junior, Megan Lucker, is raising money at Baileys General Store on Sanibel on November 19 for heart and stroke research.Megan said, In eighth grade, I had a stroke in the middle of FCAT week. At 14, I woke up one morning with strange symptoms like not being able to walk straight, slurring my speech, and seeing in double-vision. I was forgetful and extremely exhausted, and I didnt know why. I was picked up early from school and rushed to the hospital. A week later, and my family and I learned that I had inherited a blood clotting disorder called thrombophilia. A clot had reached my brain through an open flap in my heart (that also wasnt supposed to be there), and thats how my stroke occurred., Megan said.That summer she had heart surgery to close the flap in her heart, called a patent foramen ovale. I am blessed to have recovered fully, having no residual side-effects from my experiences, she says. Today, I volunteer for the American Heart Association to spread word about heart disease and stroke. Now my family and I are prepared with life saving information for stroke prevention. Not everyone is so lucky, Megan said.This is why, on Saturday, November 19, she is collaborating with Baileys General Store to raise money for the American Heart Association. Students from the Sanibel School and Sanibel Community Church will be there at the check-out counters. Customers will be given an opportunity at the register to make a donation. The money will go towards providing stroke and heart disease education and research, as well as sending children to Camp Boggy Creek, a Paul Newman Hole-in-the-Wall camp for children with physical disabilities. I had the opportunity to attend it two summers ago. It was one of the best weeks of my life, she added. Megan Lucker with Jared Fogel, a spokesman for Subway, during a Heart Walk Winner Chooses CharityBrenda Segura is the most recent winner of the We Love Our Islands promotion sponsored by Bank of the Islands. Segura was spotted with a We Love Our Islands decal on her vehicle. That won her the right to select which local nonprofit cause would receive a charitable contribution of $600 from the bank. This contribution marks $44,700 given to island nonprofits through the Banks We Love Our Islands program. Segura chose to direct the contribution to the St. Isabels Womens Guild. Its just great Brenda chose the Womens Guild for our donation, said Bank of the Islands Vice President/Manager Rob Lisenbee.

Well take care of you!Corner of Periwinkle Way & Tarpon Bay Road472-1516 My Stars FOR WEEK OF NOVEMBER 14, 2011ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Some changes might seem confusing at first, especially to an Aries whose impatience levels are pretty shaky this week. Take it one step at a time, Lamb, and soon all will be made clear. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That difficult situation youve been dealing with continues to call for careful handling. Avoid quickly made choices that might not stand up when theyre finally put to the test. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You still have lots of evaluating to do before you can consider making a commitment. Its better to move cautiously than to risk stumbling into a major misunderstanding. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously peevish partner offers to be more helpful with your problems. But remember: The final choice is yours. Be guided by what you feel is the right thing to do. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As the Big Cat, you can sometimes be pretty rough on those you suspect of betrayal. The best advice is to pull in those claws and listen to the explanation. It might surprise you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your inner voice usually guides you well. But a note of caution: This is a period of mixed signals for you, so be careful you dont misunderstand the messages youre getting. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Cupids call beckons both single Librans looking for a new love, as well as couples hoping to strengthen their relationships. A workplace problem is quickly resolved. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Its been a hectic time for you, and you might want to take a break to restore both body and soul. Youll then be set to face new challenges later this month. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Its a good idea to take a more conservative approach to your financial situation right now. Some plans made earlier this year might need readjusting. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This is a fine time to move boldly into those new opportunities I promised would open up for you. Check them over, and then choose the best one for you. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Congratulations. Your self-assurance is growing stronger, and you should now feel more confident about making that long-deferred decision about a possible commitment. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Youre very close to reaching your goal. But be wary of distractions that can lure you offcourse and leave you stranded far away from where you really want to be. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an inner sight that helps you see into peoples hearts. You would be an excellent psychologist or social worker. On Nov. 17, 1421, a storm in the North Sea batters the European coastline. Over the next several days, approximately 10,000 people in what is now the Netherlands die in the resulting floods. Fatal floods struck in 1287, 1338, 1374, 1394 and 1396. After each, residents fixed the dikes and moved right back in. On Nov. 14, 1851, Moby-Dick, a novel by Herman Melville about the voyage of the whaling ship Pequod, is published. Moby-Dick is now considered a classic of American literature and contains one of the most famous opening lines in fiction: Call me Ishmael. On Nov. 15, 1867, the first stock ticker is unveiled in New York City. The advent of the ticker revolutionized the stock market by making up-to-the-minute prices available to investors around the country. Prior to this, information from the New York Stock Exchange traveled by mail or messenger. On Nov. 20, 1923, the U.S. Patent Office grants Patent No. 1,475,074 to 46-year-old inventor and newspaperman Garrett Morgan for his three-position T-shape pole traffic signal. By having a position other than just Stop and Go, it regulated crossing vehicles more safely than earlier signals had. On Nov. 16, 1959, The Sound of Music premieres on Broadway. While the real-life Maria did marry Count Georg von Trapp and become stepmother to his children, she never did the other things shown in the musical, such as run singing through the Salzburg, Austria, mountains. On Nov. 19, 1969, Brazilian soccer great Pele scores his 1,000th professional goal. Under Peles leadership, Brazil won the World Cup in 1958, 1962 and 1970. During his career, Pele scored 1,282 goals in 1,363 games. On Nov. 18, 1978, Peoples Temple leader Jim Jones leads hundreds of his followers in a mass murder-suicide at their commune in Guyana. Cult members who refused to take the cyanide-laced fruit-flavored drink were forced to do so at gunpoint or shot. The death toll was 913, including a U.S. congressman who was investigating the commune. It was British writer and humorist Jerome K. Jerome who made the following sage observation: It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one. Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen. According to an international survey of taxicab drivers, passengers who use cabs in London are twice as likely as those in eight other major metropolises to leave a laptop behind when exiting the taxi. Sharks can live for a century or more. Velcro came to market in 1957, after a Swiss inventor named George De Mestral spent nearly 10 years developing the idea. His inspiration came to him in 1948 on a hike, when he had difficulty removing tenacious little burrs from his clothes. He reasoned that if he could create synthetic burrs, they could be used as fasteners. The Parker Brothers game Monopoly is the best-selling game in history. Its available for purchase in 28 countries, and it can be played in 19 different languages. If you speak some French, you might know that the phrase tout a lheure means see you later. You might not realize, though, that that phrase is the origin of the English term toodle-oo. Chances are, theres a Park Street in your town. Its the most common street name in the United States. Europe is the only continent without a desert. Even icy Antarctica has deserts -including the worlds largest cold desert. We need anything politically important rationed out like Pez: small, sweet, and coming out of a funny, plastic head. -Dennis Miller THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAYISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 201116B

Like every year there have been a lot of changes to the estate, gift, trust and tax laws that merit attention and vigilance in your estate plan. Today Ill review a few of them. If you are new to Florida and have not updated your estate planning documents, you really should take a good look at them. This is true even if your attorney up north told you that your plan is just fine. The most common mistake that I see is when the Florida residence that has now become your Florida homestead is titled into a revocable trust that contains credit shelter and marital trust provisions. When the spouse whose trust that owns the Florida homestead dies, the distribution of the homestead into the credit shelter or marital trust almost always results in an invalid devise under Florida law. What this means is that it doesnt matter what the will or trust says, Florida law is going to govern the distribution of the Florida residence. What Florida law mandates is that the surviving spouse now has a choice between a life estate in the residence and an undivided one-half interest as tenants in common with the decedent spouses children. If this is a second marriage, and even if the decedent spouses will or trust says to give the residence to all of the children of both spouses, or to one of them or some other combination it doesnt matter. Another potential problem with this arrangement is that the children will have a vested legal interest in the residence. What this means is that neither the surviving spouse nor the children can sell the residence without the others approval and they all will share in the proceeds of the sale. Further, if one of the children who have a vested interest in the residence has a creditor problem, that problem will now cloud the title to the residence. Another major change that occurred during the course of the last year is a new Durable Power of Attorney law in Florida. I wrote about this law a few weeks ago in this column and you can find that column on my firms website: www.sbshlaw.com/blog/. The quick synopsis is that due to the new law, it is wise to update your Durable Power of Attorney. The new law contains requirements mandating specific reference to certain powers for them to be effective, including new signing requirements. The budget crisis is going to affect the tax laws. For those of you who believe that the $5 million exemption is going to last forever, keep a close eye on the Congressional Deficit Reduction Super Committee which is due to issue its report sometime near the end of the month. If you have the inclination to take advantage of the increased gift and estate tax exemptions, time may be running very short. In fact, without any further action from the congress and the president, on January 1, 2013 the estate and gift tax exemptions will fall to $1 million and the top marginal estate tax rate will increase to 55 percent. While we hope this wont happen, weve all seen how dysfunctional our federal government has become. No one knows what the future law will bring so if you have thought about implementing more advanced estate planning techniques, there is no better time than the present to take advantage of todays more beneficial law. For those interested, Im going to be holding a workshop on these and related topics at the Sanibel Community House on November 15 at 9 a.m. If you want your current estate planning documents reviewed, we will be offering a complimentary checklist review. Just bring your documents with you and drop them off at 8:30 a.m. before the workshop. Youll get the documents back with the review at the end of the workshop. You may call 425-9379 to reserve your spot or to ask any questions. While most of us wish that things wont change all that much, Im afraid that 2012 is going to be filled to the brim with changes that affect us all. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA Superior InteriorsSome Sound Color Adviceby Marcia FeeneyWhen it comes to color, I advise my clients to follow their hearts. As an interior decorator, my color philosophy revolves around the fact that sometimes color preferences are not always the same as your favorite colors. But when some sound thought is considered when planning for a new color scheme, generally your hearts color desires will rule supreme! And as most people have discovered, planning a color scheme is a carefully thought-out process. I suggest my clients follow five easy steps in assessing their space for a new color scheme. First, decide where your best opportunities are for using color. Will painting one wall in an accent color give your room the spark you desire? Or perhaps a soft blending of similar color hues willcontinued on page 20B

C all: 2394 25-93 7 9 Insurance Tip Citizens Reduces Its Coverageby Marge MeekEffective in 2012, Citizens is taking away all coverage of aluminumframed pool cages (or any material that is not the same as your dwelling material) at renewal of your wind or your homeowners with wind policies. Also, carports, patios, and awnings that are aluminum will no longer be covered. The change also affects structures that are constructed to be open to the weather, like tiki huts. Since pool cages and the like have been added to the dwelling coverage in the past, this could mean that the coverage of your home is too high and will need to be refigured by your agent. Citizens is providing a new cost estimator to be used by your agent in recalculating the coverage. If you think this is the case, you are encouraged to contact your agent and ask for a new evaluation. Cost estimators are just that, so when contacting your agent, go over all the details of your home to see if there is really a substantive difference. Some of you will remember that up until a few years ago, Citizens would allow you to purchase an endorsement to cover the pool cage with a $500 deductible. That endorsement was taken away and since then, pool cage coverage has been included in your dwelling deductible, usually 2 percent. Now when we have high winds, named storms or hurricanes, you have no coverage from Citizens for your pool cage. There are a few companies who will write homeowners policies with wind coverage and those companies typically have the pool cage endorsement available as part of your dwelling deductible, just as Citizens had up to the 2012 change. Marge Meek is a local SanibelCaptiva insurance agent, who can be reached at mmeek@rosierinsurance. com. by Bryan HayesA pool heat pump is a refrigeration device that works just like your home air conditioning system but in reverse. During the summer when your air conditioning is set for cooling, it takes heat and moisture from the inside of the conditioned space and pumps it outside. Now your pool heat pump does the same exact thing, but in reverse. It takes the heat that is present in the outside air and, through conduction, transfers it to your pool water to raise the pool temperature. A basic knowledge of how a refrigeration system works would be beneficial at this point. Refrigeration is defined as the process of taking heat from someplace where it isnt wanted and disposing of it someplace where its acceptable. The laws of heat transfer dictate that heat will only move from a warmer medium to a cooler one. This heat transfer occurs through the use of refrigerant. Heat is absorbed from the outside air into the refrigerant because the temperature of the refrigerant is cooler than the outside ambient air. The heat that was absorbed from the outside air is then transferred into your pool water and helps raise its temperature. There are several factors that need to be considered when your pool heat pump is in operation. This heating process occurs a little at a time; you cannot expect to raise the temperature in your pool considerably in an hours run. Another factor that should be considered is the outside temperature. If there is more heat present in the outside air to be absorbed, then the heating process will go much faster; if its cool outside, the opposite is true. The best way to expedite the process is to use a pool blanket. I know that its not the most convenient method, but during extremely cool weather like we experienced last winter, you could lose up to eight degrees overnight. By using a pool blanket, you can also reduce your energy bills by as much as a third for the operation of your pool heat pump. One last point Id like to make is on the use of chlorine, and how improper use of this chemical can do serious, irreparable damage. Major consideration should be given to how the chlorine is introduced into your pool. Chlorine must be introduced downstream of your pools heat pump. It should never be introduced into the skimmers. If it is, the damage that will result in a short amount of time will cost a tremendous amount of money to repair. Whats even worse is that this failure will surely happen when you have everyone you know coming to Florida to swim in your warm pool for the holidays. P.S. Although we no longer work on pool heaters, I felt that sharing this information could be helpful. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

Second, take a critical look at your rooms architectural features. Do you want them to stand out take center stage or be minimized? For instance, perhaps you have painted bookshelves flanking a rooms fireplace. Adding an accent color to the back walls of your bookshelves might add just a bit of much-needed color flair to the entire wall scheme. Third, try to define how your space is being used. Reading, relaxing, game playing, watching TV? An important consideration in selecting your new color scheme is how you actually use and enjoy the space. Fourth, analyze your rooms lighting. How much natural light does your room have? A room with a lot of artificial light will definitely call for a different color plan than one with a lot of natural light. Fifth, but not least, its critical that you take into account your new rooms relationship to the other rooms in your home. Color continuity is key to creating the overall look most people desire for their homes. Marcia Feeney is an interior decorator on Sanibel. She can be reached at marcia@decden.net.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 11, 201122B Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, My wife has invaded my space. I retired and looked forward to doing all of the things I could not do while employed, e.g. sleeping in after a late night, having fun for hours on my computer and leisurely walks with the dog. My wife wanted to stay on with her job and her many social activities. The past six years have been so much fun and I have had the time to look at the cooking shows and I always have dinner ready when she returns. But now my wife has retired and is not so involved socially and so I cannot enjoy my fun in privacy. I love my wife but I wish she would leave me alone. What do you suggest I do? Harvey Dear Harvey, This is a reversal of roles; we usually hear about men invading a womans space. Your wife could also be having a difficult time. I would suggest you try to have a non-threatening discussion with her or have a relative or friend be part of the discussion. Encourage your wife to take up some of her former social activities in retirement that gave her pleasure while she was employed. Lizzie Dear Harvey, Perhaps gender equality has made it to another layer of gender politics! Welcome, welcome to the world of many women who have worked at home only to be invaded when their husbands retire and feel that they can run the home as they had run their office. Sorry, no sympathy here. I would recommend you discuss with your wife and restructure the home and activities so both of you are not under foot and bothersome to one another. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com. deaRPharmacistTinnitus Can Drive You Nuts: What To Do About Itby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: What can be done to relieve the discomfort of tinnitus? The crackling, buzzing, and popping in my friends ear drives her to distraction. Shes tried several commercially available products from the health food store, all without relief so far. What do you suggest? LJ, Orlando, Florida Buzzing, clanging, whooshing, musical tones, humming, ringing, even jack hammering... tinnitus can drive you absolutely bonkers. I cant stand it even when my neighbor fires up his leaf blower, and thats over in 20 minutes. You may recognize these celebrities who have confessed to bouts of tinnitus: Eric Clapton, David Letterman and Steve Martin. The internal racket can be caused from exposure to sudden or chronic loud noises, free radical damage, agerelated hearing loss, medication side effects, ear wax and a number of diseases. Thats just for starters. All I can do here is give you some more perspective about options. If your tinnitus doesnt yield to simple remedies, see your doctor for an evaluation. Look in your medicine cabinet. Theres a surprisingly long list of prescription and OTC drugs that have been tied to tinnitus: Non-steroidal antiinflammatories (NSAIDs), loop diuretics (like furosemide), and many antibiotics, anti-depressant drugs, and salicylates (like aspirin). Auditory-related side effects might develop all of a sudden, even if youve been taking the drug a long time. Discuss this possibility with your doctor and pharmacist. In cases of reversible tinnitus, sometimes switching medications brings relief. Stress ramps up the noise! Consider biofeedback. Studies suggest that biofeedback training could help you find your internal control knob and turn down the volume. Deficiencies of specific nutrients can sometimes affect hearing health: Zinc, Coenzyme Q10, vitamins D and B12. Also, magnesium, a mineral in spinach and leafy greens, has been shown repeatedly to support auditory mechanisms, improve hearing loss and ease tinnitus. As we speak, the Mayo Clinic is conducting a clinical trial to verify this. And an Israeli study long ago found that military personnel with tinnitus were often short on B12. Asian folks seem to have a good grip on this condition. Chinese medicine doctors use acupuncture and a variety of herbals to deal with tinnitus. These treatments vary considerably, but could be very effective. I keep up with Korean news because my 24-Hour Pharmacist book is published in this language. A recent study concluded that two compounds: Bojungikgitang and banhabaekchulchonmatang significantly improve tinnitus. American health food stores are going to screech and whine if you ask them to order that stuff, so dont even bother. A few studies support the herbal gingko biloba, which may help by improving blood flow and scavenging free radical toxins. Other herbs worth looking into include black cohosh root and vinpocetine which improve blood flow and oxygen to the brain; goldenseal could help too, and also mullein herb which addresses inflammation. DID YOU KNOW: People with pale skin (who burn easily) appear to be more likely to be deficient in vitamin D. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

In late summer in my town I head out to pluck the plumpest purplest perfectest blackberries in town, a masochistic exercise known to its practitioners/victims as pick and prick. In August the blackberry pickers chant can be heard resonating throughout the valleys for many miles Mmmmmm, OUCH! mmmmmm, CRAP!, mmmmmm, WASP! (Repeat.) Im protective of my favourite spot and if I happen to see anyone picking in the very area that I intend to pillage, I point them to the freshly posted signs that read Bubonic Plague Zone or Medical Parking Only. If that fails then I subtly torch their car. Once picking I am never happy with the berry I have just picked/squashed. I glimpse that prize berry just beyond my reach. Like a bear sticking its bare snout into in a busy beehive, I extend myself fully to nab it but get viciously snagged by several lesser jealous berry branches. My hands become a patchwork of deep purple berry juice and deep red hemoglobin. Ahhh, the joy! Ohhh, the pain! Later in the fall I pick mushrooms, keeping in mind at all times the old adage, You can be a bold mushroom picker or an old mushroom picker but you can never be both. But many pickers are not seasonal pickers. They live in their own skin all year long and it seems to say to them, Pick me, pick me! Twenty-seven-year-old Julie had more scabs than a labor strike, more scars than Joan Rivers and more stress than a snake crossing the track at the Indy 500. Her face, scalp, shins and the parts of her back that she can actually reach have been scraped and picked over like a dead varmint in Vultureville. Some scabs were infected and now truly had become itchy. With great medical acumen I surmised that she simply couldnt help herself after she said to me, Doctor, I simply cant help myself. Julie suffers from Neurotic Excoriations (NE), an unfortunate yet common picking disease of the skin. Like all impulse control disorders, tension builds up and the impulse to pick becomes uncontrollable. There is momentary relief as Julie heads to the mirror and picks out imaginary threads but this is soon followed by shame and guilt as tears now flow and mingle with the blood of her over-picked, undermined face. She repeats this several times a day and has actually been placed on disability because of it. NE can be a manifestation of stress or a symptom of an underlying psychiatric disease such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression or borderline personality disorder and self-mutilation. I have a long spindly wooden back scratcher sitting on my desk right next to Gumby and Pokey. I call him Handy. He is the finest piece of wooden sculpture in my home and one of my best friends. Handy has five reliable wooden fingers that never complain when I send him down the back of my shirt to do a task that only a wooden hand could love. In fact I am scratching at this very moment as I type with my nose. Like most men and dogs, I love a good scratch. If Handy goes missing I get quite upset and throttle my sons until he reappears, usually where I left him in the bathroom (dont ask.) Am I abnormal? Perhaps, but not because of my scratching. Scratching becomes pathologic when it goes on for hours forming cuts that never heal as they are picked, scratched and rubbed again and again. Many over-scratched victims cover the damage with makeup; others dont leave home because of it. But now there is good news in this battle against problematic skin picking. Julie was placed on an SSRI medication and in very short time she has responded dramatically, though she still succumbs to the pick urge on occasion. She now needs no extra makeup other than to cover some old scars and she is functioning normally. She works full-time and has taken up new hobbies including cycling, knitting and baking homemade pies. I provide her with the berries. Like the column?

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: My sister seems to be selfabsorbed and I would like to get her to start thinking of others. Any suggestions?A: Why dont you take your sister to a place where you can volunteer and help others? She may resist initially as she may never have done this before. You can be the inspiration by letting her know how wonderful it is to care for others. It not only lifts their spirits but yours as well. Let your sister know that it may even help her to be healthier. Research shows that acts of caring can contribute to you having a healthier heart. Spreading acts of kindness can be contagious. Talk it up with her and let her know that sometimes its the little things that go a long way. Stop by and welcome a new neighbor, let someone in front of you at the toll booth, bring flowers to the office, and spread the compassion. You should see a shift in your sister once she realizes what she has done in the act of giving of herself.
